east around the eapitol and into the
avenne adjoining the main column.
The grand officers escort, a post of
honor, was accorded to the survivors

eran association, which is holding its
seventeenth annnal reunion in connec
tion with the Grand Army of the Re
public encampment closed the first
part of the procession.
Then came the Grand Army of the
Republic posts by departments. The
old soldier was apparent in every step,
and the proudly martial behavior of
the veterans was strengthened by tho
plaudits of the multitude which rang
continually in their ears as they passed.
The posts marched in the order of their
seniority, lx-ginning with Illinois,
where the Grand Army of the Republic
was organized. The rear of the pro

The procession was, as far as possi
ble, strictly a Grand Army nf the Re
public organization, the first and last
division containing the only non-soldiers.
The procession moved nnder the or

Gen. Palmer with his aides and asso

The line of march of the procession
was from the foot of the eapitol along
Pennsylvania avenne past the treasury
building, the department of justice, the
White House, the state, war and navy
departments, to Twenty-third street,
where the parade disbanded.
Never did Pennsylvania avenne look !
so transcendantly beautiful with its
clouds of bunting floating in the bright j
sunshine; misses of tolor bunched on I
stands and along the aide walk, re
lieved by the borders of green foliage
of the tree rows on the aidewalk. It
was a scene which the most graphic
pen would fad adequately to picture.
A pleasing feature of tbe march, and
one that the veterans greatly enjoyed.

Secretary Rusk's striking figure at
the head of the Wisconsin department
was the signal for continued applause.
Secretary Noble marched with his
post the Ransom post of St Louis.
Ex-President Hayes marched on foot
V-sth the Ohio men, and Senator Pad
dock with the department of Nebraska.
The Pennsylvania department pre
sented a nnmber of notable features.
It carried the greatest number of tat
tered battle-flags. The reception given
to these mutely eloquent testimonial
of the dangers braved by the "boys in
blue" demonstrated the regard in which
"Old Glory" is held by the people.
Nothing else so enthused the specta
tors. Pennsylvania presented the only
cavalry post in line.
"The Frosty Sons of Thunder from
Somerset" was the humorous banner
nsed to identify R. M. Cnmmings post.
The members each carried a cane made
of gnarled and twisted roots, the most
ont re shapes being preferred.
John P. Hartranft Post No. 8, Harris

in zouave uniforms, who used muskets
with fixed bayonets for batons. These
they flung high in the air and threw at
each other twenty feet distant and yet

Immaculate Conception, both composed
of boys, received generous applause.
Post S27, I". S. Grant of Brooklyn,

all the procession. The Xew Yorkers
seem to have let their taste and their
purses, the one artistic and the other
plethoric, run away from the O. A. R.
regulation as to uniform. Close fitting
dark blue coats and trousers, with
white helmets were the favorite com
bination. As Post 148, of Brooklyn, approached
the stand, a little boy and girl, bearing
bouquets left the line and presented
them to Gen. Palmer who kissed the
little maid and held the flowers for
some time after receiving them. The

After the Xew York department had
passed np, spectators showed the wear
iness of flesh that possessed them and
began to seek their resting places.
Five states then had been in review
and three hours were gone.
While his department (Xew York)
was passing the reviewing stand, Gen.
Palmer refreshed the inner man with
a substantial lunch. It was three hours
after the head of the procession passed
him ere the ears of the commander-in-chief
were greeted with the strains of
either "Marching Through Georgia' or
"The Girl I Left Behind Me."
Night was even more glorious than
the day. Shortly after dark, which
was of a most favorable density owing
to the lowering clouds which had en
abled the veterans to march without
undue fatigue and except for a short
time in the early morning without
danger from the heat the multitude
who lined the avenue while the parade
was in progress, repaired, so far as
possible, to the vicinity of the monu

fireworks provided by the committee
and Paine, the pyrotechnic king, was
made. It was a magnificent show, in
some respects nnequaled and worthy of
a place in the programme of the day's
Succeeding the fireworks display,
there was an electric illumination on
a scale never before attempted in
this country. It was one of the at
tractions provides! by the citizens' com
mittee and was a complete success.
Pennsylvania avenue up to Seventeenth
street waa ablaze with colored lights.
Every available dynamo in the city,
public and private, was brought into
requisition, and numbers had been
shipped here especially for this display.
The feature of the illumination was
the display along both aides of
the avenue of brilliant representa

these had been placed on supports at
convenient distances in three colon.
red, white and blue, the respective
colon of the first second and third
divisions. Each of these were outlined
in incandescent lights of the same color
as the badge. There waa also placed
at short intervals portraits in oil of the
leading generals of the war. Just
above each of these and above the
corps badges, were the names of
many of the great battles of
th war in which the respective
corps took conspicuous part At

Over one of the entrances to the

When the end of the procession

seven hours for tbe parade to pass.
Vice-President Morton and othen of

well and continued, even to tha
last post, to show the marching
veterans the usual courtesy.' Many
posts without attempting to pass the

A BURGLAR AT BAY.
A Dateetad HoaiebrMker, Mortally
Wounded, slmpllHe. Matter, by Ending
Hla Owa Life.
KntEWOOD, Mo., Sept St. John W.
Hall, a shiftless and poverty-stricken
painter living on a small farm at Des
Peres, a little village near here, was
shot and mortally wounded by Wilbur
F. Warner, Sr., of this place, whose
house he was burglarizing, shortly af
ter 1 o'clock yesterday morning.
After receiving a charge of No. 1 shot
in the side just below the heart which
made a frightful wound, he jumped
through a window, and shortly after
ward with his own pistol blew his
raibns ou t in Mr. Warner's flower gar
den. The frequency with which burglaries
have taken place in the suburbs west
of St Louis has put householders on
their mettle, and the fact that a robber
caught in the act shonld have been
bronght down surprised nobody; but
that Hall, who though an otherwise
worthless fellow was thought to be
honest enough, should prove to be a
house breaker caused a genuine sensa
tion. An inquest was held later in the day.
the verdict being that Hall came to his
death from a pistol-shot wound in the
head over the left eye inflicted by a
person or persons unknown.
This verdict relieves Mr. Warner of
the responsibility for the man's death,
and was rendered as above, instead of
being a verdict of suicide because there
were no witnesses to the desperate act
in the darkness of the garden where
he lay. There is no doubt that tbe
wound in the side would have proven
fatal, and the dying burglar, realizing
this, to save himself useless suffering
decided to end his existence at once.
A TERRIFIC EXPLOSION.
A Frabjht Train aa a Down Urada Wraakadl
Hartford, Conn., Sept 21. At abont
10:15 yesterday morning there was a
terrifl explosion on the line of the
Philadelphia A Reading road, a few
miles west of Xew Hartford, and thirty-one
miles from this city. A fast
freight train consisting of ten can
bound for Hartford waa coming on
a down grade. In the center of
the train was a ear of dynamite. Tha
force of concussion caused the dyna
mite to explode. Five can of the train
were blown to pieces and their contents
scattered to the winds Trees on both
banks of the road were blown down
and driven into the roadbed. The
track was torn up and a large hole,
twenty feet in diameter and ten feet
deep was made in the roadbed.
The road at that point passes the
land of Orlando Clark, whose barn was
destroyed. John Clark, S4 years old, a
bnkeman on the train, had a marvel
ous escape. He waa riding on top of
the car of dynamite when it exploded.
He was blown 120 feet and his clothes
were ripped off him, but he is unhurt
except for a few slight bruises and the
shock to his system.
William Stewart another brake man
waa riding in the caboose and his face
was ent by the broken window glass.
The roadbed was badly wrecked and
no trains have since run beyond the
spot Tbe noise and shock of the ex
plosion waa heard and felt for a dis
tance of thirty-five miles in the direc
tion of the wind. -
