SHAMROCK TO THE FORE

Marching Thousands and Waving
Flags Honor St. Patrick's Memory.
All N'ew-Tork City, from the Battery to The
Bronx, from the North River to East New-York,
seemed to feel Imbued vrith the Bpirit of St Pat
rick yesterday. As usual, green was the hue of
the day, and Irish flags and banners fluttered
side by side from houses and office buildings
With the Stars and Stripes. At the rity Hall
the national flag was run up in an early greet
There was on« place In Manhattan yesterday
where the Irieh flag nwung to the breeze alone.
Everybody rota* through 14th street saw it and
thousands In other sections iaw it also, be
cause it wa? conspicuous in lte eminence. Even
patriotic Irishmen coulc not help observing that
Tammany must have used all its American flags
for advertising purposes during the late cam
"Why didn't Grand Sachem Cockran p^nd
them one?" somebody on tn<l street inquired.
Irishmen and Irish-Americans ent to mass
in the morning and got in line with the thou
sands in the rnoon. The feature of the day,
of course, as the parade. All the Irish county
organizations and the divisions of the Ancient
Order of Hibernians in Manhattan and Tie
Bronx were in line, decorated with green badges,
green sashes and thet greenest ,f all things that
STOW, the Immortal shamrock. Shamrock was
shipped into 'v-Tork by the bushel for this
occasion, and it was a poor marcher yesterday
who did not have a sprig of It. The parade
followed pptcial services in Bt Patrick's Cathe
dral, where Archbishop Farley celebrated ponti
fical mass. The 69th Regiment, under command
of Colonel Edward Duffy, attended this servkte.
Father Sherman, son of General Sharnv de
livered the oration.
Early In the- morning the different divisions of
the Ancient Order of Hibernians and Irish
county organizations began (b gathv on the up
per East Side streets adjoining 42d street and
Fifth avenue, from *hich the parade moved at
3 o'clock. The parade was scheduled to move at
2 o'clock, but owing to the thousands upon
thousands of nen, wo-nen and children who
gathered it wai impossible to get the line in
order before 3 o'clock. At that hour the mount
ed police escort turned into Fifth avenue and
pushed through the crowds. Martin J. Kane,
grand marshal of the day, and his assistants,
Patrick J. Gilroy an ! Petei J. Malloy, astride
fpirited horses', followed. Then came the »K»th
Regiment, with Colonel Edward Duffy. The
bai.d struck up 'The Harp That Once Thro
Tara> Ha!Ls," and to this tune the head of the
parade turned into the avenue.
The Catholic Orphan Asylum Band of !•><)
pieces Ftirred the hearts of Use crowd with such
pieces as "Come B;ick to Erin." "The Wearing
of the Green" and "The Minstrel Boy." A
feature of the parade was the marching of over
a thousand cadets from different churches
of the city. When the parade reached
the Cathedral the chimes played a medley of
Ir sh melodte*. Archbishop Farley and other
prelates viewed the parade from the diocesan
house on Madison avnue. The parade went out
•o Pulzers Harlem River Park, where it dis
banded. Mayor McClellan and other city offi
cials were in carriages.

pointed b?f President Parsons.
President Parsons of the Republican County
Committee announced the Bpecla! comi.T.ttee of
the County Committee on reapporttonment yes

of the County Committee. It is made up as fol
lov.-s: "William C. Wilson, of the 27th District.

Ten Eyck. of the 34th: Abraham Gruber. of the

The committee held a brief meeting yesterday
afternoon and will meet again this week
The number of Assembly djptrlcts will not be
increased, although there has been a great in
creas« in the population in the last ten years.
There win be two new districts In the BSth, be
cause of the fact that the population there is
about IT9,O(X>. In order to provide for these
several downtown districts will be consolidated.
Here Is where the pinch comes. The leaders
who are "consolidated" look at the proposition
from their own particular point of view, and
they think that there is Just one man rrho
should be allowed to shine as the survival of the
fittest. The change will be particularly hard on
some of the district* where much money his
been spent on a clubhouse. While the biew will
fall hard on Republicans. It will be still hardf-r
for the Tammany men. as their clubhouses, aa
a rule, are muchj more expensively furnished.
It is the general plan of President Parsons and
his friends to carve out of the whole three Ban
ate districts which In normal time*, will be re
garded as • safe Republican. 11 One of these will

Elsberg. comprising the 25th. 2Tth and*2l«h As

include the 23d and part of the 31st District.
After the Senate districts are marked off the
carving of the Assembly districts will follow.
and the hardest fighting will be over the lines
of the minor divisions.
The Tammany men, who really have more at
stake than have the Republicans, are interested
onlooli merely. They v.lll have to take what
is handed out to ttu-m. It will be a . upting

SCOUTS DEATH REPORT
Mr. Olcott Believes Jones Is 'Alive
and Will Testify.
Thprr is an impression 1n Fome < Irdes in Tf-xas
that Charles F. Jones, former valet of William
Marsh Rice, vn whose testimony Albert T.
Patrick was convicted of murder, has been
kiiled. It is known that before he disappeared
last autumn his life was threatened by an irate
father and the "orother of a girl he wronged.
Ex- Judge W. M. K. Olcott, chief counsel for
Patrick, who for six months ha« been sparing
no expense In his efforts to find Jones, does not
«hare In this belief, although he has received a
tetter from one of his agents in the vicinity of
Morgan's Point, T^x.. saying:
Jonea was «ngag»d to be married to a daugh
ter of one of these farmers. Some trouble grew
up between the^n of a very serious character,
and tb« supposition Is that If Jones has not left
the untry altop-.ih^r. he was killed. When I
tell you what Knurrtd down there I think you
will agn-f with me that he has been killed.
Ex-Judge Olco t doe« not think that Jones is
dead because he knows that when Jones disap
peared he did les*/e the country.

Olcott yesterday. "We followed him and learned
