The crowds were simply phenomenal.
Early in the morning the railways be
gau debarking excursionists from every
part of the state, while the Interurban
lines deposited crowds faster than the
sidewalks could afford the means of
distribution. By noon the streets had
become surging masses of struggling
humanity. The vicinities of the several
arches were favorite rendezvous for the
eight seers, and the utmost exertions of
the police were necessary to keep* a
thoroughfare. But it was a holiday
crowd, good naturedly bent on enjoy
ment, and the blue-coated Myrmidon
found exercise for no other function
than that of a road maker.
Nobody could complain of a lack of
punctuality. Every detail was so ably
handled that the dual procession started
almost on the dot of time, and was com
pleted in season to permit the throngs
to return to their homes before night
"OCR BOYS" FINE SHOW.
Firemen and Apparatus Hailed
With Loyal Acclaim.
Ilalf-an-hour before the parade proper
started the crowds were treated to a
pleasing and unique display made by
the St. Paul fire department. Headed
by a band of music, the forty-one pieces
of apparatus in the department were
driven over the line of march, and it
goes without saying that this part of
the parade was a success. The mem
bers of the fire board in carriages
headed the procession, followed by
Chief Jackson and his assistants, while
behind them came the engines, hook
and ladder trucks, chemicals and hose
carts. The pieces of apparatus were
handsomely decorated, each of the com
pan! *is seemingly entering with a spirit
of rivalry in an effort to outdo the other.
Tha result was a dazzling display of
artistic decorations. The fancy trim

While the artistically decorated floats
received their share of applause, the di
vision that took with the masses was
that which comprised the military.
There is something in the stirring music
of the bands, the brilliant uniforms of
the oHicers and the rythmic stop ot
troops which seems to awaken a feelinir
of enthusiasm than nothing else can
arouse. Seldom, if ever, have the resi
dents of St. Paul witnessed a military
pageant such as was seen on the streets
yesterday afternoon. Over i,r>oo men,
including the Third infantry, U. S. A.,
from Fort Snelllng; First infantry and

It was 3 o'clock when (Jrand Marshal
Gen. W. B. Bend, who was in civilian
dress, accompanied by his aids,galloped
his charger down Sixth street to
where the first division was standing
at parade rest. Soon the bugle sounded '
the signal to march and the troops were
in motion. Following the mounted
police squad, which was commanded by
L^ieut. Bucly, came Grand Marshal
Jenu and assistants. Then the Third

The soldiers from the fort marched as (

troops at the fort, took the eye of the
spectators along the line of march, al

Close at the heels of the regulars was
the First regiment, N. G. S. iM., com
manded by Maj. \V. G. Bronson. The
regiment was divided in two battalions,
the first commanded by Capt. Bean and
the second by Capt. Ames. At the head
of the regiment was the regimental
band and the drum corps of Company
B. Maj. Bronson and staff presented a
brilliant appearance, and Company D,
the crack company of the regiment," oc
cupied the right of line. The uniform
of the National guard is now so nearly
like that worn by the regular army
troops that it was almost impossible to
tell the Fort Suelling soldiers from the
militia boys. Both regiments were in
marching uniform, and the only distinc
tion in their dress was that the militia
had blue, and the regulars white shoul
der straps. Companies C, D, E and 11,
of St. Paul: A, B. I and F, of Minne
apolisr X, of Stillwaler, and G, of Red
VYing, made up the regiment, and COO
and odd men were in line.
That the'regular troops were given
the right of line in the parade did not
detract the attention of the thousands
along the line of march from the militia,
and as the companies marched with the
swing of old veterans their appearance
was greeted with enthusiasm. The First
artillery, N. G. S. M., in command of
Maj. Libbey, comprised two bat
talions, one under Capt. J. F.
McClure, of St. Paul, and the
other under Capt. C. C. Bennett, of Min
neapolis. There were forty men in each
battalion, and with the prancing nnd
gaily caparisoned steeds, the. brilliant
uniforms of the men and the* polished
batteries, the contingent captivated the
crowds. The battalion from the Shat
tuck academy in their natty uniforms of
gray, headed by their own band of
twenty-four pieces, were the recipients
of much applause during the march.
The cadets turned out four companies
of forty each, and were commanded by

Showing St. Paul's Karly Histoi y
and Primitive Transportation
In the second division were grouped
events in history in the most impressive
fashion. The older settlers took more
pride in this than any other part of the
parade, and the later generation had ; n
opportunity to see many things pictured
in real lite that are only familiar to
them iv print. The division was in
command of L. D. Wilkes, with F. B.
KelJog, W. G. Strickland, R. E. Cobb,
.John JSwin borne and J. \ r . Rothschild as
aids. Heading this division were Indian
trappers and others, showing theft
mode of transportation; this was
rude harness of rope and
thongs, by which two poles were
attached to prairie ponies lead by
squaws and fastened 1o the poles were
the furs and baggage. There were
other Indian warriors with implements
cf war, including battle axes, bows and
arrows. John Soto, eighty-four years
old, a comrade of lien. Sibley and the
oldest trapper in the state, is a Sioux
Indian who marched with the division
decked in eagle feathers and war paint.
Chief Henry Cloud, the secretary of the
Sioux tribe; Henry Jones, Sam Blue
stoue and other Indians were painted
and decked out in feathers as in the old
times. There was a float representing
the early French voyageurs ascending
the Mississippi In a canoe in U>w. The
seven men at the paddles sang along
the line of march. The float was drawn
by six horses, four at the wheel and two
The float bearing a miniature of the
first log church in the city, ana after
which St. Paul was named, was drawn
by tour wheel horses and two leaders.
The church was covered with bark, and
was a double cabin of the rude type. It
was erected in 1841 by Father Gaultier.
An escort or twenty Frenchmen, in cos
tumes of the early days, followed the
float. There were two ot the one-horse
Red river carts of 1801 which ran to
Winnipeg in thirty days, with the prim- I
itive harness in use in. early times. The
axles of the carts were of wood, and
wooden liuchpins held the large and
irelcss wheels iv place. The typical
prairie schooner, with its canvas cover
and stovepipe extending from the rear •
end, was in its place, with a dog under |
it and two lean cows attached by ropes
to the rear.
There were mall carriers on horse
back. Then there was the old mail
coach that ran from St. Paul to Fort
Mead, Deadwood and Grand Forks,
drawn by four horses. In the coach
were B. VV. Brunson, S. P. Falsom, C.
S. Uline, of Devil's Lake; William Pitt
Murray and Nathan My rick.
In the old-fashioned stage coach,
drawn by four bay horses, were A. L.
Larpenteur and part of his family, Mrs.
Larpenteur, Mr. and M.ih. M. E. Brlggs,
Mrs. James Harrison, Homer T. Harri
son, Mrs. Thomas Smith, Mis* Mary

Larpenteur is the oldest resident iv the I
city. Ills daughter llosa Is the first
female child born in St. Paul; she per
sonated Queen Victoria at the celebra
tion held in this city In 1858 on the occa
sion of the laying of the Atlantic cable.
The first postoffice ol St. Paul, estab
lished in 1840, was represented, and was
surmounted by an eagle and escorted by
the 110 earners in the city.
The float representing the Virginia,
the first steamboat to come to St. Paul,
was very attractive. It represented the
river as being rough in 1823, when it
reached here, commanded by L. D.
The float representing Locomotive
No. 77, of the Chleago, Milwaukee <fc
St. Paul railroad, was drawn by four
horses. This engine drew the first

The Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis &
Omaha had an attractive float with a
miniature of the old-fashioned engine,
and on the front of the float was a camp
scene with the tea kettle nuug over a
jire on a crane.
One of the most attractive floats was
that representing Engine No. 342 of the
Great Northern system. The engine was
mounted on a track that was bordered
with sods, grass and a border of oats in
sheaf, while the engine was cav^red
with sheaves of wheat.
State and Municipal Floats Pre
sent Fine Spectacles.
The third division moved out of Lo
cust street promptly on time. Beautiful
is the one word of general meaning that
describes the appearance of this part of
the parade. Clever men had worked
out ingenious, instructive, novel and
significant conceptions; and the result
was an entrancing, moving picture of |
civilization, progress and material
achievement, That it appealed to all
minds and made a deep impression on
all hearts was amply evidenced by th§
reception accorded each passing part of
the splendid line of state and municipal
triumphal cars. A guard of houor,
brilliantly equipped, attended each float.
Marshal J. H. Beck had command ot
the division, with E. A. Jaggard, L. A.
Guiterman, A. J. Cuniuungs, A. 11.
Lindeke and L. T. Jaunie as aides.
Kleist's tine band, witJi the leader him
self as drum major, rendered the music.
"Minnesota," moat lustrous of all the
states In tho glowing coronet of North
western commerce, came first to view,
in the position of honor. Commerce,
jobbing, industry, transportation and
plenty were typified by fair maidens
from the St. Paul high school, who bore
in their hands or rested on appropriate
designs. Topping the float was the
Father of Waters, "Old Mississippi,"
whose dignity was well sustained by a
smiliiiir lad very neatly disguised.
The Dakotas were excellently por
trayed in their material productions.
Enthroned over all sat Ceres, at her feet
an overturned water jug, typifying irri
gation. Sowing and gleaning of golden
harvests were appropriately represented
on all sides of tiie principal figure.

resented in the center by a stalwart
figure with callipers, resting on a heavy
cog-wheel, which by its position bal-
I anced the float. The figure of the Press
held a golden type. Then the Commer
cial club, with the standard adopted by
them for the use of business men, show
ing "St. Paul the center of North Amer

wheel Uie schools were represented by
a woman starting "Young America"
with the A, B, C. Completing the float
was the triumphant figure of the Job
bers' union surrounded by ca^ks, bar
rels, crates, boxes and packages, all in
white and gold. This float, following
the brilliant pageant of the varied
colored floats, did not fail to elicit the
marked approval of all observers.
Minneapolis had two really fine floats
in line, the first representing the milling
industry In a complete and tasteful man
ner, with the hand stones of 1,81)0 years
ago being manipulated by two girls.
The second was a Greek galley, hand
somely decked, Mercury at the helm,
and the God of Commerce in the waist.
Minneapolis, a handsome female figure,
was seated aloft, and bore a torch to |
signify progress. These floats received
marked attention, and were worthy of
the aumlrution bestowed.
Grand Forks was well represented.
The City of St. Paul.

Practical even to the prosaic was the
fourth division of the pageant. It wis
the manufacturers' epoch, but it was
relieved now and then by an episodical
exposition that bordered on the pictur
esque. As a whole, however, it em
braced the mechanical devices of mod
ern times, the fruit of ingenuity and
product, of mechanical minds. These
were elaborated and embellished, and
flowers and pretty maidens made the
aspect refreshing and delightful to the
spectators. Gustave Scholle, the beau
ideal of a horseman and a model official,
served as tne chief marshal, and he was
assisted by an especially efficient corps
ot aids. They were twelve in number,
and they made a fine display all by
Considered sequentially, so that there
can b« no possible claim of partiality,
following the band came the float that
reptesented the industry of Lanpher,
Finch & Skinner. The conception
of the floats, and this firm had two in
the parade, were of the happiest sort.
The lirst represented a polar ba; r
scene. There were gigantic Icebergs,
and frozen in their embraces was a boat,
somewhat wrecked, and pietty seri
ously crippled. Seiils were dis
played at different points on the
iloat, basking in the sunshine
of the day, and still looking
coal under the influence of the
scenic effects of the ice and floes. The
Esquimaux were prominent figures, sit
ting about with nonchalance upon the
Jen bergs and viewing in a peaceful res
ignation the two huge polar bears that
were looking hungry and discontented.
This float was drawn by four powerful
gray horses. This was supplemented by
.a smaller float representing the manu
tafture of fur goods, and the workmen
at their tasks presented a univue and
The St. Paul Gas Light and the Edi
son Electric company had a fine float in
line. It was drawn by four horses, and
all the appliances and apparatus em
ployed in the manufacture and conduct
of the business was conspicuously dis
piayed. The center represented the
world, marked with all the points and
geographical things of interest to the
observer. This globe was surmounted
by the American eagle, and lots of
handsome decorations. A miniature
locomotive occupied a place In the front
portion of: the float, and then there was
the telephone, a steamboat and an in
candescent light display and other
things in Koodfy array.
Mast, Buford & Burwell's float was
one of the noticeable effects of the pa
geant. It was drasvn by four proud
horses, and there was a galaxy of agri
cultural implements and the like ar
ranged in artistic style. The display
was embellished by a mounted corps of
gaily attired cavaliers, and the display
of iridescent hues was dazzling in the
bright sunlight. Tno horsemen wore

the whole was drawn by six fine horses.

the polar bear, the icebergs and tne

was so positively bashful that she could

others were ready to give it, but it is not
reproduced in respect to her sensitive
feelings. Among the galaxy of pretty

of their employers, were Misses Nora

The Chris Stahltnan Brewing com

horses attached'toa float with a German
scene in the front and a huire beer cask
further back. The tirsc was a sort of a
summer garden, for which the father
land is .so famous, and upon the beer
cask sat old Gamhrinus in all his gloiy.
A "schooner" was at his hand, and he
looked the perfect picture of content
This was followed by the display of the
Pabst Brewing company. It was plainer
than the ordinary, but no less eloquent
in effect. It was the biKifest cask in Che
parade, and then the inscriptions in
dicated the magnitude and importance
of the business that was exhibited. This
float was so large that twelve handsome
gray horses were employed to draw it.
The most picturesque, in the minds
of many of the cricics, of all the dis
plays in the entire pageant, was that
of the Schurtneier Wagon company. It
came in divisions. The first was the
most ornate coach that can be con
ceived? It is modeled after the famous
vehicle in which the eccentric—some
times called crazy— Louis JI of .Bo
hemia used to distinguish himself. It
was the gala coach, out it did not ap
pear in the capacity in which the illus
trious Louis employed it. It repre
sented George Washington's day out,
and VV. S. YVestphal .impersonated
George Washington and Miss Martha
Jagger as the first lady of the new re
public. They rode inside the coach
clad in the habiliaments of continental
days, and the pomp and display was ac
centuated by the coachman and his as
sistant.Capt. Gordon and E. N. Monroe,
while riding behind were two correctly
costumed footmen, Frank Barber and
Charles Nienhaber. The coach was a
perfect ovation of briirht colors and
flowers. The second float was a repre
sentation of the practical in the busi
ness, it was, Indeed, a miniatiiro
factory with fourteen men engaged in
their vocations. The third float repre
sented a Great Northern express wagon
and the last the dirt cart by which the ,
Great Northern was built.
The Theo Ilauim Brewing company
had one of the attractive displays of the
procession. It was like the others, a
representation of the brewery business
with the convivial accompaniments
thrown in as embellishments. King

The St. Paul Stove company exhibited
the wares of its manufacture, and it was
a surprise. Can St. Paul compete with
the world in this respect? The question
was answered by the floats of this com
pany. The productions were handsome
and stylish, and showed v finish that

a tropical jungle ami natural history in
a decree that attracted the admiration
of all school children. There were ex
otic und indigenous plants, blooming
(lowers and bright foliage, and in the
midst were a galaxy of forbidding,
ferocious beasts of prey, from which the
python was not omitted. Iv the very
center of this sceuo was a charming
picture. Miss Marsh represented an
oriental queeu.crowned with jewels and
gold. Her rich, raven locks hung loose,
and were wafted to the breeze. In her
hand w;<s grasped the sword of progress,
and on all sides posed the members ot a
zoological collection. There were trap
shooters, Indians, Turks and Arabs In
this display, and the whole was drawn
by eight horses.
