Meeting Is Held.
With the Imprem?as force of a great
white foam toosed wave ot the mighty
ocean, the biegest parade in the his?
tory of the Woman auftrage cause swept
up Fifth avenue and passed tri?
umphantly into history at n o'clock last
night. For more than two hours
marching hosts of white clad women
with Buttering flags and strident bands
Riled Fifth avenue, but in all that time
and throughout the whole route of the
parade, from Washington Stjuare to
Central Park, there was no disturb?
ance, nothing to mar the perfect peace
of the great demonstration. The crowds
were orderly; the women were serene
as brldi BmaJds, th?* weathf-r was even

of the city v.ere gathered to see who
these w?.men might be who thought
they wanted to vote.
The entire IstBgth of the avnue eras

The police 1nspe?tors at 40th street es?

Early in the day the suffragists went

were thre? By ?'5 o'clock, however,
the tall buildings cast comfortable
shadows across the street an?l march?

gentlemen In the reviewing stand suf?
