Addresses were also delivered by Captain Harrison Houseworth and R. M. Welch, Chief Consul of the L. A. W., Pacific Division. Mr. Stevens was spoken of in the kindliest manner, and ultimately was presented with an autograph album containing the names of the members of the club, with appropriate sentiments, and a special copy of the "California Road Book" by its compiler, John W.

A sub-committee of the Committee of Arrangements for the annual meet at Santa Cruz on July 4th next, visited that place on Saturday, the 12th inst, and were very hospitably entertained by Consul Radke. They found the citizens very anxious to have the wheelmen visit them on the 4th, and willing to offer every facility except in the matter of sleeping accommodations. These it was found impossible to secure from any of the hotels. A general meeting of the committee was held in this city on Thursday evening last, and a report received from the delegation sent to Santa Cruz. E. N. Radke of Santa Cruz, R. G. Bailey of San Jose and Harrison Houseworth and John W. Gibson of the San Francisco Bicycle Club were added to the committee. The plan of a three-days' camp at Santa Cruz is now being considered.
