Admiral Dewey breakfasted alone, and
did not leave his room during the morning.
Orders were left at the office of the ho

his room until after 10 o'clock, and then
only those who were intimate friends of
the Admiral or had important business

"all aboard," waved his hand to Engineer
George E. Hilyard, and with a shrill whis

moved out of the depot bound for Jersey
The hour of starting was a little early
for Washington people, and outside of the
few travelers who were waiting for trains
there was nobody at the station and the
start was accomplished in a quiet and dig
nified manner without any blowing of
trumpets or hurrahing of crowds. In fact
a number of persons who came down Co see
the delegation depart, arrived at the de
pot after the train had gone.

after their cars and the cooks and wait

like beavers, preparing to serve an early
breakfast to the occupants of the train.
About 6:30 o'clock the train was drawn

It is furnished with leather chairs and the

and adjoining it a completely furnished
barber shop. The main part of the car is
supplied with the large leather chairs and
at the far end is a small, well-selected li

lighted by both gas and electricity and
contained every modern convenience
known to luxurious travelers.
The engine which drew the train was
No. 21, with big, seven-foot driving wheels,
one of the best locomotives in the Penn
sylvania service. In the cab were Engin
eer George E. Hilyard and Fireman W. S.
Bradford, two of the most trusted em
ployes of the road.
"Old Twenty-one can make eighty miles
an hour." said Engineer Hilyard. "and, if
they will give me a clear track, I will pull
them through on time. Old 21 has pulled
the train on which President McKinley
traveled a dozen times, as well as that
which brought Lieutenant Hobson to
Washington. She has hauled trains carry
ing the most distinguished men in the
country, and on one occasion she ran at
the rate of ninety miles an hour from
Philadelphia to Wilmington. I was haul
ing a special train and we were behind
time and had to make up a lot of ground.

bringing the Admiral to Washington."

Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol

mass of many colored i flags and bunting,
and this evening will bi ablaze with lights
of every color of the 'rainbow, but with
red light predominating. Besides the
lights and fireworks tcj be burned by the
general committee, all tho citizens along
the line of march will illuminate their
stores and residences, and six or eight
large searchlights willflash up and down

the theatres have been particularly rener
ous In their use of electricity, for In addi
tion to the regular incandescent signs used
by them, the managers have tried to add
something to the effect by placing colored
lamps at Intervals along the building in
place of the white lights. On one of the
playhouses row after row of red, white,
and blue lamps blazo forth, and the effect
is very pleasing.
The committee having In charge the Il
lumination of the city promise that all the
parks along the line of march of the pa
rade will be lighted with fairy lamps, and
some of the business houses have also
adopted this idea, with the result that
strings of small colored lights are to be
seen everywhere hanging apparently on
air. One of the best decorative pieces has
been placed on the railing of the long bal
cony over the main entrance to the Post
office Building, and consists of a huge
electric jign divided into three parts. In
the centre of tho display is a wreath of
lights with the date of the battle of Ma
nila. On the right Is the message from
President McKinley to Dewey at the out
break of hostilities with Spain, "Capture
or destroy Montojo's fleet," and on the left
Is the famous order given to the captain
of the Olympia at the beginning of the
battle, "When you are ready, Gridley, you
may fire." This piece is about ten feet
high and extends almost all the way
across the building. The two grandstands
are completed, and the decorations have
been finished. The reviewing stand at Fif
teenth Street, with its tall flag poles and
blazing lights, makes a magnificent show
ing after nightfall. The decorations on
this stand have all been explained in de
tail in The Times.
The stand at the east front of the Capi
tol is not quite so elaborate In point of
decorations, but the effect is as pleasing.
The stand is similar to the usual in
auguration stands, covering tho central en
trance stairway on the east front of the
building. It has a seating capacity of
about four hundred. The front of the stand
Is covered with whitemuslin, on which are
draped American flags and red, white and
blue bunting. Golden American eagles
centre each flag cluster. A flight of steps
leads down from the front of the stand
to the flags.
The Interior of the Pension Office is
tastefully but not profusely decorated in
honor of Admiral Dewey. Suspended from
the centre of the hall floats directly over
the fountain the large flag that was pur
chased by popular subscription among the
employes while Commissioner Murphy was
in charge. In front of the office doors are
small flags, and the fountain has a unique
decoration. The rim of the fountain Is
covered with bunting, and extending over
the water in the basin is a double arch
trimmed with red, white and blue colors,
pictures of Admiral Dewey and flags.
In the water are in miniature the old
Monitor and Merriraac. These historic
vessels have each in tow several sloops cov
ered entirely with mosses, evergreens and
holly. 'An American flag flies at the stern
of these floral boats and a picture of
DLwey is caried by each.
The entrance to the Navy Department
racing theWhite House was today adorned
with a life-size picture of Admiral Dewey.
The likeness of the Admiral is hung on a
huge American shield. This will be sur
rounded with electric lights, producing a
red. white, and blue effect American flags,
inerspersed with various naval ensigns.
Tvlll also adorn the building.

THE "WHITE HOUSE DINNER.
An Increase In the Number of Invi
tations to the Affair.
The state dinner to be given by President
McKinley tomorrow night In honor of Ad
miral Dewey will be a much larger affair
than was originally planned. 'This Is
brought about largely by the fact that a
large number of State governors and oth
er distinguished persons from out of town
will be in Washington to take part in the
reception to Dewey.
The number of invitations to the state
dinner has accordingly been increased and
the dinner will take place in the main
corridor adjoining the Blue and Red par
lors instead of in the state dining-room
where the space is too small to accommo
date the part.
The reception of Admiral Dewey tonight
at the White House by the President and
Cabinet will necessarily be of short dura
tion, as the parade In his honor will pa-s
the reviewing stand shortly after the time
set for the White House event.

The commitee made some exra efforts

part of the week.

Plans to Deal a Crushing Blow to
the Filipino Forces The Itclease
of American Prisoners Continued.
The War Department today received a ca
ble message from General Otis in which ho
confirms the press reports relating to tha
release of American prisoners and their re
ception at army headqarters. The report
was not given out, because It contained po
Htical Information that the War Depart
ment desires to consider.
Regardless of this fact, however, it ha
been learned on the highest authority tha?
nothing short of unconditional surrender
of the entire Filipino forces will be accepted
by General Otis. This decision was con
tained in the despatch and thl3 proposition,
meets with the hearty approval of the Presi.
and Secretary of War.
The desire of the Filipino envoys to ob
tain recognition of the so-called insurgent
congress will not be granted.
In his despatch General Ofls stated that
he has absolutely refused to entertain the
proposition. While the situation in tha
Philippines is not regarded as partlculaly
encouraging at the present time, it is tho
determination of the authorities to admin

this reason It is intended to entirely crush

of force that the lesson will not be. forgot

The department has also received con
firmation of the report that a number of
gunboats and an armored barge, with a
force of 250 sailors and marines, have gone
to Orani. which town will be destroyed in
retaliation for the loss of the gunboat Ur
daneta. which was recently scuttled and
burned by the insurgents at that place.

Prof. J. G. Schurman, of the Philippino
Commission, arrived in Washington today,
and made a brief call on President Mc
Kinley. He will remain here during tha
celebration In honor of Admiral Dewey. It
is probable that the President, Admiral
Dewey, and Professor Schurman will havo
a conference on the Philippine situation oa
Wednesday, before the President starts oa
his Western trip. There can be no full
meeting of the Philippine Commission at

Worcester have not yet arrived In the
The number of visitors at the White
House today is estimated to be larger than,
at any previous time during the ji'resent
Administration. Very little official busi
ness was transacted, as the President spent
the greater part of his time in receiving
delegations. The calls were announced as
being of a purely social nature. The great
