Formal Opening to th Public of the
Great Structure Connecting: the Cities of
jfew York and Brooklyn The Two Cltiea
jn Gala Attire A Grand Pyrotechnic
New York, May 25.
Although the day opened cloudy and
jbreatening, the streets ' approaching the
great suspension bridge" across East River,
both in New York and Brooklyn, were
Uironged with people, and the grand ceremonies
of the formal opening of the
to the public began according to the published
programme. President Arthur and his
Cabinet officers, Governor Cleveland and
other distinguished guests, had special
escorts of police and military. Brooklyn
ivas one mass of decoration and animation.
Throughout the city there appeared to be a
general surrender of business to sight-seeing
and celebrating. The main business avenues,
the heights, and many streets clear out into
Ihe suburbs, were decked most gayly with
flags and bunting and flowers for the bridal
with the city over the river. Public buildings,
private houses, and the street cars and
trucks fly the colors of all nations in honor
of the opening of the " big bridge."
The following cut, which is a correct
view of the massive structure, we are enabled
to present to our readers through the
courtesy of the Chicago Tribune:
Throughout the length of Columbia
Heights, and the streets opening into that
fashionable neighborhood, the decoration
was very general, and the effect handsome.
The houses of Colonel Boebling, Chief Engineer
of the bridge, and of Mayor Low, of
Brooklyn, were decked with flowers and
bunting, and the coats-of-arms of New
York and Brooklyn.
From the towers of the great bridge the
National flag waved, and the span-across
the river was dotted with flags from one end
to the other.
The Seventh Regiment, N. G., State of
New York, Colonel Emmons Clark commanding,
detailed as the military escort for
the occasion, assembled at the armory in
full uniform. A guard of twenty were detailed
to march on either side the President's
carriage. The command marched
down Park and Eifth avenues to the Fifth
Avenue Hotel, the President's quarters,
where it was drawn up.
The sidewalks along the route were lined
with people. On Madison Square it was estimated
that 10,000 people were gathered.
The President and invited guests occupied
carriages, which were drawn up in
line on the south side of the hotel. In the
first carriage sat President Arthur and
Mayor Edson. In the other carriages were
Secretaries Frelinghuysen and Folger,
Postmaster-General Gresham, Secretary
Chandler, Attorney - General
Brewster, Marshal McMichael, of the District
of Columbia; Allen Arthur, T. J.
Phillips, Surrogate Rollins, Governor Cleveland,
Governor Ludlow, of New Jersey;
Governor Fairbanks, of "Vermont; Generals
Stryker and Slocum; Governor Littlefield,
of Rhode Island, and staff; General Carr
and staff, Collector Bobertson, Congressman
Cox, Hon. William "Windom. and Speaker
Keiferr State Senators and the Peruvian
The committee representing the Brooklyn
Bridge Trustees escorted the President and
Cabinet to their carriages, other guests falling
into line and taking the carriages assigned
them. When the cairiages passed
the Seventh Regiment the command presented
arms. The military then broke into
column and maivhed down Fifth avenue
and Broadway to the City Hall Park, where
the members of the Common Council received
the President and Cabinet.
When the City 'Hall was reached the column
halted, and those in the carriages took
their places in the line on foot The inarch
over the bridge was a pretty sight as viewed
from the roof of a neighboring building.
The long line of soldiers in white and gold,
with their guns flashing in the sunlight and
the surging crowd of citizens, seemed to approach
the New York tower very slowly.
Contrasted with the size of the bridge, the
multitudes upon it appeared almost
From below the procession which
moved over the footway could scarcely be
seen at all.
In Brooklyn the parade was ' equally successful.
In the column which started from
the City Hall were the Twenty-third
National Guard, Mayor Low and the
officials of the city Government; also the
Society of Old Brooklynites; Major-General
Hancock, commanding the military division
of the Atlantic, and his staff; Commodore
Upshur, commanding the naval station of
the port of New York, :md his staff; officers
of the United States army and
navy; the Brigadier-Generals of the Second
Division, and their staffs; and
prominent guests who had received
invitations to attend the opening ceremonies.
All were under the command of General
James Jourdan, the Grand Marshal of the
day. The column marched through Bemsen
and Clinton streets, and over the bridge to
the New York lower, where the President
was received and escorted to the Brooklyn
station, where the iormal opening
monies took place.
When the two columns met on the bridge
National salutes were fired from Forts
Columbus and Greene and the men-of-war.
The chimes of Trinity and the bells of St
Paul and many other churches pealed out,
and the steam vessels in the harbor blew
A temporary flooring had been laid over
that portion of the structure which will
serve as a roadway for' arriving and departing
trains. To this part of the building the
bulk of the spectators were consigned, the
chairs on the north being reserved for Brooklyn,
and those on the opposite for the gentlemen
crossing ihe bridge with the chief
dignitaries of the day.
It was half an hour after the time figuring
on the programme when the real business
of the hour began. Mr. J. S. T.
presided over the exercises, which
were opened with music by the Twenty-third
Regiment Band, and prayer by Bishop
Lutlejohn. Then followed President W. C.
Kingsley's presentation address, and the acceptance
addresses by the Mayors of Brooklyn
and New York. Levy played a cornet
solo, and Abram S. Hewitt came after him
with a long oration, of a historical character.
Bev. Dr. Storrs mad an eloquent
oration, and then the exercises came to a
close. The two cities had been duly and
formally wedded, and the icrial highway
declared open to travel.
In the evening the entire population of
New York and Brooklyn appeared to be 1
rushing madly toward the bridge or toward
points trom which it could be seen.
The burning of fireworks began at eight
o'clock and continued for an hour, during
which time the heavens seemed ablaze with
bursting rockets and shells. Upon each
tower and from the middle of the bridge a
perfect stream of colored meteors kept shooting
up into the sky, to the amazement and
delight of the tens of thousands of spectators
on house-tops, docks and boats. Brooklyn
was brilliantly illuminated, and the heights,
viewed from the New York side, seemed
aflame with light.
At nine o'clock the last rocket shot
heavenward, and, with a tremendous parting
salute from the steam whistles of the
excursion boats, the crowds turned homeward.
As far as they were concerned the
celebration was over.
At the Brooklyn Academy of Music last
night there was another crush at the reception
given to the President and other guests
of Brooklyn's Mayor. There was no handshaking,
the guests merely bowing their acknowledgments
to the salutations. A number
of minor accidents occurred during
the day, but not of a serious character.
A TRIUMPH OF ENGINEERING SKTLI..
The great bridge is largely the product of
the severe winter of 1866-7. During that winter
the East River ferry-boats came to grief.
"Brooklyn business-men embarking on a Fulton
ferry-boat found themselves, after an hour's
cruising, in the vicinity of Hellgate. For days
the rlve"r was so choked with ice" as to be almost
impassable. Some boats, in beating against
ice-cakes in'a strong current, were driven down
around Governor's Island and then to Staten
Island. The inconvenience was great, but
the losses sustained by certain business
interests were such that a vigorous demand
was made for a bridge. Soon after men
of capital obtained a charter, and a bridge
company was formed with a capital of $5,000,-000.
The charter was afterward amended so
that the enterprise should be managed exclusively
by the authorities of the two cities,
Brooklyn agreeing to pay two-thirds of the
entire cost William CL Kingsley, of Brooklyn,
deserves to be called the lather of the great
bridge. As early as 1805 he employed an engineer
to draw plans and make estimates
for a suspension-bridge, and when the time
came for action he became the acknowledged
leader of the enterprise. May 23, 1867, John A.
Boebling was appointed Engineer. In September
of the same year he made his report of surveys,
plans and estimates. Work was
on the site of the foundation of the
Brooklyn tower January 3, 1870. Engineer
Boebling. however, did not live to see this
work begun. In the summer of 1809, while at
work on the location of the Brooklyn tower,
an incoming ferry-boat collided with some
timbers which crushed his foot, and he died of
lock-jaw about two weeks later. His son,
Washington A. Boebling, was called upon to
take up and complete his father's great work.
He was equal to the emergencj Although
falling a victim to the "caisson disease" in
December, 1871, he supervised the work from
his sick room. He has never recovered his
health and never will.
The construction of this gigantic cobweb for
travel has furnished an episode of engineering
the magnitude of which few appreciate.
The towers are 27G& feet in height. The
cables are anchored inland at a distance of 930
feet back from the towers on each side. The
anchorages are triumphs of stone-masonry,
119 by 133 feet at the base and rising to an elevation
of 90 feet above high-water mark.
Weighing about 60,000 tons each, they are of
course capable of resisting an enormous strain
from the cables. A stranger viewing the towers
for the first time naturally asks: "How was
it possible to obtain a proper foundation for
such structures so near the water?"
The query is easily answered. The submarine
section of the tower was constructed
above water in the open air and then
sunk to its bed deep down in the sand or
where the fishes were wont to disport This
was accomplished by the diving-bell and the
air The style of diving-bell used
is called a caisson. It resembles nothing so
much as an inverted chest. It must be lined
with boiler-iron, seamed air-tight, with means
of ingress and egress for msn and materials.
By the use of this caisson many formidable
difficulties have been surmounted and a perfect
foundation laid where the waves will
wash their mighty bases for ages. The foundation
is laid eighty feet below the surface of
the river and the granite masonry is true to a
hair's breadth. The cables sweep gracefully
over the top of the towers 276 feet in
height. The bridge floor, which the cables
sustain, is an immense steel framework consisting
of two systems of girders at right
angles to each other. The main girders, supporting
the floor proper, are graceful trusses
thirty-three inches deep, placed seven
feet six inches apart. To these are
attached four steel rope suspenders
from the cables. Parallel and longitudinal
trusses, Avith braces or stays, give the
combination strength in every direction. At
the towers the framework is firmly anchored.
The weight of the central span of the entire
suspended structure is 6,740 tons. It is estimated
that at no tim6 will this weight be increased
by cars, vehicles and passengers more
than 1,380 tons, giving a total maximum weight
of 8,120 tons. Of this enormous weight, 6,290
tons are sustained by the cables and 1,190 tons
by the suspensory stays of steel wire ropes diverging
from the tops of the towers to points
about fifteen feet apart along the bottom of
four of the vertical trusses. These stays extend
out from the towere 400 feet They form
important auxiliaries to the cables. The central
avenue of the bridge is to be used as a
footway. Its width is nineteen feet, and it is
elevated above the avenues on the sides some
ten feet. The side avenues are occupied by
cars moving from end to end by means of an
endless wire rope operated by a stationary engine.
The cables suspended from the great towers
are fifteen .and three-quarter inches thick. In
each cable there are 5,000 wires, the whole
mass being subdivided into skeins or strands
fashioned like skems of yarn or thread. Each
cable contains nineteen of these strands of 278
wires each, and each skein is a continuous
wire nearly 1,000,000 feet in length. The
first man to cross from tower to tower was E.
F. Farrington, the Master Mechanic of the enterprise,
who made the trip August 25, 1876.
Then the detail of the work went on, each day
adding to the number of wires from tower to
tower, until finally a light foot-bridge was run
across, and all who desired could walk from
one anchorage to the other over the tops of
the towers and across the river. Then the
cradles, ten in number, were got in position,
so that the men engaged in the cable-making
could regulate the wires, a matter of no small
difficulty, since the atmospheric eliects of the
sun and wind were such that frequently the
cables varied as much as half a foot in height
in the course of a das'. The deflections were,
however, all overcome, and the last wire Avas
run across October 15. 187S.

The Attorney-General has given an opinion
to the Secretary of the Treasury that,
under the provisions of the act approved
March 3, 1883, no tax can be collected on
the capital and deposits of National Banks
since the first day of last January, and no
tax on the capital and deposits of State
banks or private banks since the 1st of last
December. The Attorney-General says he
is of the opinion that taxes are not assessable
and collectable on the deposits and capital
stock of National Banking Associations
for the period between the date of the act
of March 3, 1S83, and January 1, 18S3, nor
on the deposits and capital of other banks
and bankers for the period between the date
of the same act and December 1, 1882.
Loading the "Vaults.
There are 896 tons of silver coin lying
in the large silver vault of the United
States sub-treasury in this city. This
represents a total valuation of $32,568,-000,
of which about $22,000,000, or 620
tons, are in legal tender silver dollars.
This immense deposit of silver coin is
being increased steadily by corporations
and merchants, who take advantage of
their lawful privilege to exchange tho
bulk coin that comes into their possession
in the course of trade for silver certificates.
Trade dollars can not be thus
exchanged, the Treasury Department
not recognizing these coins as legal-tender,
but simply as bullion. The desire
to get rid of silver coin, especially
the heavy dollars, appears to be increasing
among business men, and at the rate
they are now pouring it into the sub-treasury
they are likely to fill the vaults
completely in a short time. Of the
twelve compartments in the large silver
vault four or five contain as much as
they will hold, and are tightly sealed up.
The silver coin is packed away in stout
cotton bags, $1,000 in each bag, and in
the largest full compartment there is
$6,010,000 in Bland dollars. In another
compartment there is $6,206,000 in dollars,
and a tag on the sealed door of a
third compartment informs the visitor
that therein is $3,200,000 in silver
quarters. A bag of silver of the value
of $1,000 weighs fifty-five pounds. Mr.
Floyd, the chief clerk in the sub-treasury,
stated yesterday that there was an
occasional day when no silver coin was
brought there for redemption, but as a
rule they received from $10,000 to $40,-000
in silver each day. "The business
men do not seem to want silver," re
marked the old gentleman.
The accumulation of gold at the sub-
treasury is also assuming large proportions.
The amount locked up in tho
vaults of that institution yesterday was
$73,678,495. It takes $542,600 of gold
to make a ton. The gold is put up in
bags of $5,000 each, and packed away
and sealed in iron compartments, which
are made to hold just $500,000. In
one small room in the gold vault, tho
reporter was informed, there were $40',-000,000
of gold coin sealed up. Tho
great weight of gold and silver in the
sub-treasury rests upon a floor of solid
masonry and concrete, between twenty
and thirty feet thick. Many business
men who have more trade dollars than
they know what to do with, take such
coin, to the United States Assay-office,
where it is weighed, and its value in
bars is exchanged for it. The silver
bars can be readily sold for legal tender
paper money. Silver trade dollars to
the amount of $1,000 will bring about
$840 when thus converted into silver
bullion. Its exact price depends upon
the quality pf weight and fineness
and upon the market price of silver.

The fact is well understood
that the MEXICAN MUSTANG
LINIMENT is by far
the best external known for
man or beast. The reason
why becomes an "open
secret" when we explain that
"Mustang" penetrates skin,
flesh and muscle to the very
bone, removing all disease
and soreness, ho other liniment
does this, hence none
other is se largely used or
does such worlds of good.
Having been troubled for many years with kline?
disease, "with severe pains In my back and limbs my
ankles were at times very badly swollen I was advis4
to go to the hospital for treatment, whichjl did oa tb
advice of a friend, but found no relief, at least only of
temporary natur, and I had given up all hope of s
cure until my husband was advised to use Hunt's Bem
cdy by a friend that had used it and been cured of s
severe case of dropsy and kidney trouble. I procure
a bottle, and had not used one-half of the bottle before
I began to be better, no pain in the back, and tht
swelling of my limbs commenced to go down, and iay
appetite was much better, for I had become so bsj v
that all I ate distressed me very much. It was really
dyspepsia, combined with the other troubles, and I
have used four bottles, and am able to do my work an4
attend to household -duties which before had. been -burden
to me, and I can only thank Hunt's Remedy
for the health and happiness which I now enjoy, and
esteem it a great privilege and duty to give you this
letter in behalf of my many suffering lady friends 1
Boston and the country, and can only say in conclusion
that If you once try it you will be convinced as I was,
even against my own. will, that Hunt's Bemedy Is indeed
a woman's friend.
You are at liberty to use this for their benefit If yon-so
choose. Respectfully yours, Mrs. "Wm. Gba.t,
