The"itrlotio ardor of tho thoiiRandl
in Honolulu yesterday, mom lug wat
roused to the bigbeHt pitch wheri the
carnival wa brought to a grand climax
by the celebration of the birthday an
niversary of George Washington, Fath
er of our Country, in a manner far sur
passing all previous orcanloua. As be
fitting the nature of the celebration,
the day was given over to a grand mili
tnry pageaut. More than seven thou
sand troops, comprising practically the
entire army of defense on Ouhu, were
In lij. In a single unbroken column,
extending from Aala Park to the spe
cial director's reviewing stand in Fal
'fce Square, were the - mobile troops,
' comprising the three iufautry regiments
of the Hawaiian Brigade,' the cavalry
and Held artillery regiments, the Pro
visional Regiment of Const : Artillery,
marching as infantry, the infantry regi.
- meat of the Hawaiian National Uuard,
' the Signal and Engineer troop of the
regulai army, and the Kamebameba ea

TUn walks on King street on either
sido were packed with a cheering, ap
plliuaing throng of muny thousand per
sons, whose enthusiasm: passed out pi

along the line of march they wars greet
ed with haudelapping and applause, jt.l
the voices of friends in the crowds catl
ing to the men in the ranks.
Aid if the troops were made to feel
by the reception afforded them that
they are among friends, so it was borne
in on the conviction of the citizens that
from General to youngest lieutenant,
from boyish recruit to the gray-haired
professional soldier, serving patiently
towards a peaceful retirement, should
the fortunes of war and the vicissitudes
of the life spare him, the regular troopt
in line are all a truly "our boys" a
are the national guardsmen who follow
ed them In column.' The pomp and pan
oply, of martial spectacles was missing
from this parade
Compact, Efficient Army.
With all tho troops, on the island in
liue, residents and visitors' saw pass ba
fore their eyes, a compact, efficient,
complete army, all arms of the service
being represented. And like a great
areaiiuougbt attired in it . dull . war
paint, .Impressive and majestic in ita
silent imposing display of power, so
the : army turned out, maneuvered
through the streets,' and marched like a
great machine in it drab khaki, the
uniform for war. But these seven thou
sand Americans, organised, drilled and
disciplined as they are, did Jiot march
live a -great mu.l, unreasoning machine
which is the bugbear of all anti-military
people. For a week past these of
ilcers and men have trained for their
part In the pageant by a full and free
participation in the gayeties of a car
nival, the biggest and best Honolulu bas
ever bad. t i-,,--
When the regiirents a'iid battalions
and companies debouched on King
ftreet at Hiver yesterday morning, and
started .over the route of the parade,
gone was the . careless demeanor, the
free and ee.sy manner of .the American
regulur , off duty, and in their place
were erect physical symmetry, the easy,
graceful swiug) of the well drilled
marching soldier, ami an alive, alert
intelligence that coordinated the march
