everywhere, Frequently enough to remind the
observer whom the "real leader M of his party
is, the portrait of James Q. Blaine is associated
with those of the new Executive and Vice-President.

thousands of strangers in the city, most of them
decked out in military or other fanciful dress.
Every train brings a crowd, and the streets
and' avenues are moving masses of humanity,
The most notable feature of the gathering is
the prevalence of the simple uniform of 'the
Pennsylvania rational Guards, of whioh 1BU
companies of infantry in 10 regiment, 81
