in warlike front with the glitter of
drawn sabres and the glint of steel
bayonets it will be a great army of

It will be a sight to grip the
throats and stir the blood of the
hundreds of thousands of visitors. It
is estimated that it will take at least
two hours for the parade to pass a
given point. Five miles of streets
will be filled with the infantry, cav
alry, artillery, jackles and marines
of six nations.
For the first time in the history
of San Francisco the British Union!
Jack will be carried through the
streets of the city flapping against the
bayonets of English fighting men.
The black Maltese cross of the Ho
henzollerns will be carried by eGr
man tars marching in their famous
"goose step," quaint Dutch sailors
will bear the tricolor of Holland, the
standard of Italy will be escorted by
a detachment from the cruiser Cala
bria and natty little brown sailors
from Japan will follow the rising
sun flag of the Mikado.
There will be at least 2.000 ,of
j these foreign sailors and marines 'n
j their multi-colored uniforms. Crack
' marine bands in gorgeous trappings
j will fill the air with martial music
; and quicken the pulses of the hun
: dreds of thousands of spectators.
While the fighting men of the for
' eign nations will have the first place
!in the parade, the biggest showing
; will be made by Uncle Sam's soldiers,
sailors and marines. Every military
and naval post within 100 miles ef

troop of cavalry will prance through
the streets to the shrill crying of bu
i gles. Field guns will lumber along
I the thoroughfares drawn by galloping
horses. There will be platoon after
platoon of sailors and marines.
While the applause that will greet
j the foreigners will be tumultous that
i which Uncle Sam's boys will receive
| will be volcanic. It will be a sight
jto stir the patriotism and pride of
the hundreds of thousands of visitors
j and send the blood coursing more
; swiftly through their veins.

I San Francisco will literally sprout
j soldiers on the occasion of the mili

glow with color as the kaleidescopic
j living stream moves along. There
.will be uniforms of scarlet, blue,
| khaki and white.
The big military pageant will pass
in review before the uniformed rep—
resentatives of 25 nations. The re—
viewing stand will be a riot of gor
! geously colored uniforms and gold
' lace. The governors and mayors of
many cities and states will be there
ito witness a spectacle almost unsur
passed in history.

ed from a six months' business trip to
tbe empire, who says:
"The board or war us reorganized by
the strong uieu of the empire is grad
ually transforming the army, inspiring
it with self respect and an abiding
faith in the regeut by redressing
wrongs and punishing oppressions and
abuses. The board of navy, a recent
creatiou. is planning the nucleus of a
formidable squadron of battleships,
modern to the last degree. The board
of finance has evolved a step upward
most daringly radical for China. It pro
poses to issue its owu banknotes! To
that end it has under contract several
expert American banknote engravers to
equip the plant already set up iv Pekin.
"Of all the imperial boards of Pekin
the most active and the most heavily
burdened with responsibility by the
prince regent and at the same time
most interesting to Aaierica from a
commercial point of view is the board
of posts and communications, which
has contracted for a $r.0.000 telephone
plant for Pekin.
"The multifold activities of the board
has perhaps as much to do with tbe
innovation as anything else, for the
closet the supervision grew the greater
the need for a means of instant com
munication became. Having decided
that the telephone was absolutely es
sential to the progress of China, the
board ignored the possibilities of a
conflict between the old and new
China and invited bids.
