I Issociated Press Dispatches to the Herald.
New Yobk, November 3.—The Demo
cratic uarade to-night started an hour
later than scheduled. The crowds were
immense; the sight of tens of thousands
of men, all bearing torches or lanterns,
baflles description. The paraders were
fantastically decorated and bedec'ted
with flags and bandanas in every con
ceivable way. They moved along twelve
abreast, but were frequently blocked
by the crushing crowd whom the police
seemed powerless to handle. Every
where could be heard the question,
"What's the matter with Grover?" with
the regular answer, "He's all right."
Another refrain they seemed to enjoy
was, "Ben, Ben, he'll never see the
White House till the robbins nest again."
Behind the dry goods men came tbe
wholesale cloak manufacturers, who pro
claimed their sentiments thus: "Free
raw material will give us the world for a
"Where's Sackville-West?" wasa con
stant query, which called forth the state
ment, "He's in the soup."
Among the clubs were the Wholesale
Dry Goods Porters and Truckmen, Stock
Exchange Club, Railroad Club, West
Side Business Men, Wholesale Jewelers,
Insurance Men, Custom House Brokers,
Wholesale Druggists, Boot and Shoe Men,
Young Men's Independent Club, Ele
vated Railway Employees, Produce and
Maritime Exchanges, Coffee and Cotton
Exchange, Real Estate and Insurance
Agents, and a vast number of political
While the' procession was passing
Twenty-eighth street and Fifth avenue,
a well dressed unknown man dropped to
the sidewalk dead. His body was taken
to tbe station-house.
A PICTURESQUE SCENE.
When Governor Hill and the members
of the Reception Committee arrived at
the grand stand, it was 8:30 o'clock, and
for an hour previous the streets had
been packed with people. So dense
wag tbe mass that 400 policemen
had difficulty in keeping the road clear
for the procession to pass by the review
ing stand. The scene witnessed by those
fortunate enough to secure seats on the
principal stands was picturesque in the
extreme, and the array of torches borne
by the thousands of paraders had the
appearance of a gigantic flame as the
bearers neared Madison Square. Several
companies of mounted men made a
splendid appearance. The well-known
figure of Joseph J. O'Donohue, at the
head of the Downtown Business Men's
Cleveland and Thurman Association, was
greeted with three cheers and a tiger
from the vicinity of the Governor's box.
It took nearly four hours for the proces
sion to pass the grand stand. Estimates
of the number in the procession range
from 50,000 to 75,000.
EXCITEMENT AT REPUBLICAN HEADQUAR
At Republican headquarters up to
midnight was most exciting. Fifty police
were kept busy clearing tbe crowds from
the vicinity. The officers had all they
could do to quiet the disturbances which
occurred between the representatives of
the different political beliefs.
All the Democratic organizations of
Brooklyn, numbering 25,000, made the
final demonstration this evening by a
grand parade through the principal
Business Men ana Wall Street Mil
New York, November 3.—Broadway
was thronged with people this afternoon
to witness the start of the Republican
parade of business men. The weather
was much the same as that of last Satur
day when the Democratic business men
paraded. Rain came pouring down
steadily from out of the leaden sky, but
this did not seem in any way to dampen
the ardor of the paraders. Promptly at
1 o'clock the procession moved with
Grand Marshal Mitchell at the
head. The American flag was omni-
S resent in the ranks of tbe paraders, on
uilding and in windows along tbe route
of tbe procession. Multitudes of people
thronged the route. Crowds of sight
seers stood on roofs, in windows and in
doorways and cheered the different
organizations as they passed, and the
paraders frequently joined in. Immedi
ately behind the Marshal came a string
of twelve horses in a double line draw
ing a truck bearing the model of a
steamship. The vessel was intended tv
represent the Dolphin, which was at first
declared to be unacceptable to tbe Gov
ernment, but is now considered one of
the best vessels in the navy for coast de
fense. Alongside the model were sev
enty-five men in seamen's uniforms.
They came from the docks of Ward's
line of Havana steamships, and carried
a banner inscribed, "The Democrats
killed John Roach, bnt his spirit goes
One of the most striking and unique
features of the parade was the appearance
presented by the Americus.Club of Pitts
burg. There were 275 men in line. The
men wore Tweed suits and white hats
and each carried an umbrella, around
the outside of which were stars, while
the ribs were alternately red, white and
bine, thus making a national flag. They
wheeled out of Liberty street to take
their place in the parade behind tbe
Philadelphia clubs. They were precedi d
by a standard inscribed "Pennsylvania
is at your back."
WALL-STREET MILLIONAIRES CHEERED.
When the Wall-street business men
swung into Broadway from that street,
headed by the Seventh Begiment Band,
there was a big shout from the crowd
that lined either side of the street. First
came the Coffee Exchange, followed by
the Tobacco men. Every man of the
latter bad a leaf of the tobacco
plant suspended to the lapel of his
coat, or a mammoth plug suspended
from his neck.. The Brokers' Club was
one of the features of the parade.
Each man carried a cane, to which was
attached a small American flag. Then
came the members of the Consolidated
Exchange; the other associations filing
into Broadway from Wall Btreet being
the Produce and Maritime Exchange,
Custom House Brokers, Cotton Ex
change, A. R. Whitney, Bowling? Green,
Harrison and Morton Workingmen's
Protective Association and Coal Trade.
Then followed the various trades societies

filled with spectators. In Chambers

after the head cf the procession had

further down town. In fact, the extreme

• BLENDED INSIGNIA. !
The greatest enthusiasm prevailed all
along the line. Here and there on the
buildings among the display of stars and
stripes and Republican insignia, were
occasional Democratic decorations of
bandanas, papers bearing Chinese char
acters and pictures of President Cleve
land. The paraders flaunted their little
American flags and hissed the bandanas
and groaned at the portraits of tbe Dem
ocratic candidates. The headquarters of
the Republican National Committee was
completely decorated, and a banner
bearing the portraits of the candidates
waved over the cheering thousands. Mr.
Warner Miller, Hon. Levi P. Morton,
Colonel Kruger and General John C.
Fremont reviewed the parade from the
stand at Worth monument, Madison
square. Hon. Jas. G. Blame watched
the pageant from one of the windows of
the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and afterwards
expressed regret that he had been unable
to get to the reviewing stand. It is esti
mated tbat at least fifty thousand men
participated in the parade. While ap
proaching the stand Broker William J.
Osborne, one of the paraders, dropped
dead and was borne away. Shortly

New York, November 3. —The Repub
lican campaign in Brooklyn closed to
night at Clermont avenue rink with a
speech by Hon. James &. Blame, under
the auspices of the organization of Irish
Protectionists. The structure has a
capacity to accommodate 5,000 people,
and they were there to-night and more,
too. Hundreds were unable to gain ad
mittance. Judge Rooney presided and
essayed a speech, which was cut short
by shouts for Mr. Blame, who advanced
and spoke substantially as follows:
I did not come here to-night to make a
lengthy speech, but briefly to sum up
the case. Are you in favor of a protective
tariff? [Cries of "Yes, yes."] Then
vote for Harrison. [Cries of "We will."]
Are you in favor of paying pensions to
deserving soldiers? [Cries of "Yes."
Then vote for Harrison. [Cries of "We
will vote for him."] Are you against
the President using the veto as
if he were a voter in the
Senate or House of Representatives?
[Cries of "We are."] Then vote against
Cleveland, [Cries of "We will."] Are
you in favor of a thorough American
system through and through ? [Cries of
"We are."] Then vote for Harrison.
Aie you in favor of using the surplus in
the Treasury of the United States to pay
the public debt? [Shouts of "Yes."]
Then vote for Harrison. . ["Yes we
will."] Are you against taking $60,000,
--000 out of the public Treasury and loan
ing it to favorites without interest?
[Cries of "No."]
Well, I have something more to say
on that point, for I have learned some
thing since I last spoke on it. Not only
have they taken sixty millions of dollars
and loaned it to pet bouses in the United
States, but they have done it through the
agency of banks established by Mr. Jor
dan and by the late Mr. Manning. They
have made them sort of a Government
bureau. They gave them $1,100,000 as
a fixed balance to call their own, and
then they have allowed them to peddle
out this $60,000,000 to other banks and
by that means tried to get a large number
of banks throughout the country to give
them their entire business, and I say
here that Louis XIV, or Peter the Great
of Russia, or Napoleon at his most ab
solute period would never have dared to
treat the treasury of their respective
countries in that way—never. And I
wonder that it has not made a more pro
found sensation in this country. They
have said, such papers as the
New York Times and Evening Post,
that Secretary Sherman did tbe
same. Well, I have been denying
that a good while, and this morning I
read a speech from Secretary Sherman
himself, and he explained exactly tbe
difference. Whbn Secretary Sherman
made that marvelous loan of 4 per cents
in 1879, they were sold through the banks
and paid for at the banks' counters.
Tbe money was merely in transit
between those who paid for fours,
and the man who got his pay
for the surrendered fives and
sixes. But these men have taken the
money in the Treasury, and against every
provision of the law, have dipped their
hands in up to the elbows and helped
their friends. The most corrupt thing
you can conceive of is to take money out
of the Government and give it to the
banks, who can use it and use their in
fluence for the party in power.
I saw to my regret in a paper tbe accu
sation made that the extradition treaty
had been injuriously amended by the
Republican Committee and reported to
tbe Senate by a Republican. I state
positively, and state cf my own knowl
edge, that there is not one particle of
foundation for that allegation, and that
like the fishery treaty which surrendered
our rights in the fisheries, this extradi
tion treaty is supported by Democratic
Senators, and by them alcne.
Referring to the Republican parade
which he witnessed to-day, Mr. Blame
said : It was the most mighty political
procession that ever trod the streets of
New York, and compared with that
which the President of the United
States can.c here last week to review,
why that was a picket guard merely to
the Republican army, and, gentlemen,
that procession is prophetic. It means
that the people of New York are aroused,
not on old party lines, not the old fash
ioned fight between Democrats and Re
publicans, bnt a fight between the pro
tionist and anti-protectionist; a fight
b 'ween protection and free trade.
Aterthe meeting Blame was driven
oi nass-meeting in the Grand Army

wbi reh made a short speech, saying in
part: We must stand together in the
election. This Union carries the flag of
the Union instead of the dirty bandana;
for without any disrespect to the candi
date for Vice-President, I think one of
the most extraordinary campaign badges
is a pocket handkerchief that a snuff
taker uses in his extremity. Yes,
I prefer the banner of the United States,
which wss borne up tbe great avenue of
New York by 60,000 people, and under
that flag ana under the flag of protection
we shall win a victory on-Tuesday next.
After this speech Mr. Blame was con
ducted to the skating rinks on the out
skirts of the city. His fatigue was ap

subject, the United States Senate did not

Sax Francisco, November 3.—The Re
publican parade this evening was the
closing demonstration of tbe campaign
in this city, and every effort was made to
make it an affair equal to any similar
event ever held on the Coast. Crowds
began to gather on the streets
long before it started and by
8 o'clock Montgomery) Kearney
and the blocks on Market street
were densely packed. A great number
of houses along the line of march were
gaily decorated, and brilliant illumina
tions were to be seen everywhere. Gov
ernor Waterman witnessed the pro
cession from the balcony of
the Occidental Hotel. In point
of numbers the parade was probably
equal to any held during the campaign,
and the total number of men in line is
variously estimated at from 10,000 to
There was a half-hour's delay in start
ing, but very few halts were made after
wards, and the different divisions fell
into line promptly and moved along
the streets as rapidly as their crowded
condition would permit. Temporary
stands had been erected at close inter
vals, upon which red and green lights
burned continually, which, with fire
wagons and thousands of torches and
other lights in the procession, gave an
appearance of more than usual attract-
One of the principal features of the
parade was the large number of uni
formed clubs, not only from this city
but from almost every large town or city
within a radius of fifty miles.
The industrial parade was probably
not equal to the first Republican parade
held here in September. Hundreds of
employees of various business houses in
the city and large representations of al
most ever trade and branch of industry
in the State were to be seen in line, but
there was no attempt to display so many
large truck and heavy floats as on the
There were eighteen divisions in the
procession and a band preceded each.
The Grand Marshal and his caval
cade of aids occupied the front of
the line, escorted by army and
navy veterans and tbe Republican Alli
ance of Oakland. The State Central
Commistee and County Committee ap
peared on foot at the head of the column,
and with them marched W. W. Morrow
and a number of other prominent Re
publicans. Tbe industrial representa
tions and uniformed clubs were distrib
uted among the different divisions.
The fine appearance of many of tbe
marching organizations, together with
the various movements they performed
with much precision, called forth much
applause from the spectators.
