Philadelphia. May IT. (Sptdal).?No festival Of
recent years la Philadelphia can be compart 1
with that which held th* Attention of the on
tira City to-day when the Washington Monti?
rr.err. erected by the Pcnnsylvarla Society of
the Cincinnati, wa-s unrolled at th? Qreen-it
entrance to Falrmount Park, in the lavish
decoration of btMMtngs, in the gathering of mul?
titudes of reunir, and !n the pomp ami pageantry
of the parade, the festival WSJ a demonstration
of interest and enthusiasm only a little le<s
magnificent than that which was witnessed at
the dedication nf the tomb of General Orant In
New-York on April 27
The weather was perfect Falrmount Par1.?, in
its new dress of green, nerer looked loTeller or
more inviting than it did to-day In the brlgM
sunshine. Philadelphia street!* rever looked
rleaner, and the air wan Just cool enough to
make walking about the city pleasant ar.d ex?
hilarating. That was fortunate, becaUM th.?
trolley-cars, which teem to run everywhere la
this city, were overcrowded for hours, and thou- ;
rands of purple Who wanted to get to the park ,
were not able to ride there ar.d were obliged to
Walk. In every street the building! were pay
with flaps All the streets through which the
parade nsssful were thronged with people in I
holiday attire. Everybody W;1S slsd. ,,"r,i""!'
of Falrmount Park were c^\m l rn thickly with
crowds while the parade was passing thnt the
people looked from a distance like swarms of
bees settling on a clover patch.
THE PRESIDENT WARMLY ORBSTKD.
The presence of President McKinley and oth^r
prominent officials did much to increase the
enthusiasm in the city President McKinley WM
pMted with cheers wherever he appeared.
Every movement he nude was watched with
unbounded interest. His speech at the unveil?
ing of the monument was read with avidity by
thousands almost as toon as he had uttered It.
the copies of afternoon papers containing the
Fpeech ippearing or. thp streets about the time
the monument was actually unveiled. The
President won the hearts of Philadelphias to?
day, if they had not been won before, by his
graceful actions and patriotic utterances.
Interest in the festival, of course, centred In '
the monument, which has cost about 1230,000.
Men who had been comrades in arms of Wash?
ington formed the Pennsylvania Society of the
Cincinnati, and on July 4. 1811, the society met
In the State House and resolved to erect a
monument to his memory. Subscription? t<> th
fund made at thit time amounted to only about
$2,0(Yi. but the fund grew until, with interest, it
has Increased to about 1280,000. Professor Ru?
dolph Riemering, of Rerun, designed the monu?
ment, which was constructed abroad and
brought to this country. The work of erecting
the monument began a year ago. Thirteen
steps, symbolical of the thirtern o-iar?na! Ftat<-s
of the Union, lead up to a platicrm from which
rises a pedestal of granite, rich with carving
. a-nd bronze ornamentation. On the pedestal |
stands the equestrian figure of Washington.
Twenty feet high. The entire height of the
monument Is forty-four feet.
Citizens of Phlll lelph S have looked forward
with anticipations of pleasure to the unveiling
of this nob!? and costly work of art, and Ions
before th? time set for the unveiling to? lay they
were moving by squads, battalions and rept
ment.?. although nol In martial order, to the place
where the monunu nt had been reared, and the
cars were carrying heavy loads of people in that
direction. Although the parade was not to move
until after noon, the streets along the line of
march were crowded before in a. m. Near the
monument a number of large stands had been
erected, and they were filled before noon. Police
lines kept back thousands of i- ?pie who would
have overflowed the stands before the holders
cf tickets appeared. Eager crowds of men.
women and children, arriving In the neighbor?
hood, kttssbed a wall to get into the park, and
covered the lawns until the er-?n vas turned to
black and brown. ?'"??her crowds got into the
park through other avenues, and overran the
lawns for a mile er m re ?o the wost of the en?
trance at Green-st.
MANY CALLERS AT His HOTEL.
It had been expected that President McKinley
would take a drive in the park before the parade
Vegan, but it was 10 a. m. before be could get
through with his breakfast and receive a num?
ber of prominent persons who visited him at the
Hotel Walton. Then he was obliged to hold con?
ferences with delegations who wanted to gain his
acceptance of invitations to attend future cere?
monies, and his ride in the park had to be aban?
doned. A committee of the Military Order "f
the Foreign Wars called upon the President and
presented to him the Insignia of the older. After
thanking the committee and accepting the gift.
the Preyident received visits from a large num?
ber of personal aiui political friends who went to
the hotel. He remained in th<- hotel until it was
time for him to accompany members of the So?
ciety of the Cincinnati to the monument. II was
arranged that th.- President Should be accom?
panied also by Mr Porter, his secretary. Vice
president Hot.ait, Secretary Riiss Secretary
Gage. Secretary Wilson, Attorney-General Me?

ILLINOIS-TO APPEAL TEE CASE
Chicago, Ma>. ir,.?jtidge Gibbons rendered a
decision to-,iay declaring the American Tobacco
Company an Illegal corporation, and prohibiting
Its agents from carrying on its business within
the confines of this State. The decision sustains
the Information filed last December by Attorney?
General Moloney asking that the American To?
bacco Company be enjoined from selling paper
cigarettes on the ground that it was a trust.
monopoly and cons-pirn,.y |n th? business in
The defendants filed a demurrer, but It was
overruled In the exhaustive opinion handed down
to-day. Representatives of the American Tobac?
co Company, who were in court, announced that
a notice of nn appeal to the Supreme c.urt'
would be given. The announcement nf the de
dsion did not reach the Street until after closing
hours <-n the Stock Exchantr".
The jilea ..f the Attorney-General alleged that
the American Tob?ceo company manufactures
and sells 9S par cent (,f ?\\ tne paper cigarette^
manufactured in the United States, and is a
Combination in restraint of trade. The company
filed a general demurrer, the main contention
being thai th>. State of Illinois is powerless to
restrain a foreign corporation from shipping any
article of commerce fi "m i ne State to another, or
from distributing or selling sue); article In the
State |o which the shipment U? mad-. This
proposition Judge Gibbons discusses at great
length. The Court said thai admitting that the
facts alleged as t.. the business of the company
and the manner in which it is carr!?d on to be
true, the question is whether it falls under the
ban of outlawry pronounced against trusts by
th.- Federal a?..i State statutes. The ?'our: said
that a clos,, investigation of the de< Isions of the
United States Supreme Court leads to the con?
clusion that the power of self-preservation Is In?
herent in Statehood. This gives the Stats the
power to pass and enforce any law which is
necessary and indispensable to the preservation
and conservation of public health.

pessimist? that sympathy with weak nations is
misplaced, and that enthusiasts and zealots are
dangerous enemies to clvilizatio.i.

easily by Mr. Masslngham. and that they made
fools of themselves. The defenders and apolo?
gists of the Salisbury Government, while they
have small cause for satisfaction in the recent
I conduct of British diplomacy, find it easy and
! convenient to rail at the English zealots and
faddists who have encouraged Greece to plunge
; recklessly Into a war for which she was wholly
' unprepared. That Is a charge whieh it is diffl
; cult for the Indiscreet and overzealous English
friends of Greece to ar.fi ST. There follows the
