TSE CITY RADIANT WITH COLOR
Everywhere the Red, White and Bine
Brl);hten I'p the Metropolis The dec

All Nations Thrown to the Rreeze The
Great Discoverer's Portrait a Prominent
Feature Jndah Leads Off In the Week's
Celebration and the Christians Follow
Services In Innumerable Churches.
New York, Oct. 10. It is probable that
no city was ever so beatifully, so gayly, so
artistically and above all, so universally
decorated as is New York. The citizens
have responded with remarkable unanimi
ty to Mayor Grant's request to aid in the
Columbus celebration by decorating their
homes and their office buildings. It was
to be expected that the city buildings,
federal buildings, hotels, club houses and
prominent business houses would be re
splendent in gala attire, but the ready re
sponse of private citizens comes as some
thing of a surprise in the history of celebra
tions, even in patriotic New York. Some
of the residental streets are as gay as
"Old Glory" Is Kverywhere.
Besides being the banner of the United
States no flag is so effective for decorating
purposes as the starsand stripes and of course
it is the piece do resistance of the decora
tions. The flag is seen everywhere, in all
sizes and arranged in every conceivable
form. Huge breaths of cotton, dotted with
stars and barred with stripes, and of course
red, white and blue.are also used extensive
ly for drapery purposes. Next to the stars
and stripes those most frequently seen are the
Ted and yellow colors of Spain and Italy's
cross in its center of green, white and red.
The three flags blend well, and are effec
tively used together in thousands of cases.
Jio End of Columbus Portraits.
The portrait of Columbus occupies a
prominent place in all the more elaborate
decorations. The great discoverer is shown
in many different, situations. The favorite
picture represents him landing for the first
time on the soil of the new world. Usually
a few pretty female natives are peering out
at Christopher from a convenient clump of
bushes. Thousands of cheap prints show
ing Columbus with a sanctified look and
earnest expression are hawked about the
city liy peddlers at a dime each. Every
small shop on the east and west sides has
one in the window with an appropriate
frame of stars and scripts bunting,
llroadway and I'iflii Avenue Resplendent.
Broadway and Fifth avenue, of course,
carry off the palm for brilliancy and pro
fusion of effect. From t!i? Battery to Thirty-third
street Broadway runs between two
banks of color. Every building shows some
effect. Jiowling Green, with its historic
memories, begins the blaze. The 'Washing
ton building is the most notable there. The
next building to catch the eye by its pro
fusion of decoration is the Equitable, which
is literally covered with flags, bauners,
shields, streamers, and pictures. A block
from Broadway, down in the Wall street
district, the walls of many private and pub
lic buildings hide their soiled fronts under
panoplies of color. The Drexcl building,
sul-treasury building, and custom house
are the most profusely decorated?
The City Hall in Gala Attire.
The city, hall as befitting, is certainly the
most elaborately decorated building in
New York. On all four sides the walls
are literally smothered with flags, banners,
shields and all manner of gay devices. The
c-osmonolitan idea baslioon carried out. to if 4
fullest extent. No matter from what remote !
con nt ry comes t he stranger who stands in the '
park and views the historic pile, he will see
his nation's :1r.g entwine,! around its coat-!
of-arms. Surmounting all are gaily flutter
ing st rings of hundreds of small banners.
Newspaper How is resplendent. The home
ff every journal is more or less attractively
Squares Profusely Decorated.
Union and Madison Squares, central
points of interest always, are bounded by
four lilies of profuse decorations. Aristo
cratic Fifth avenue, that Mecca of the
country visitor, does not rival Broadway in
profusion of decoration, but it is still a
wonder of brilliancy from Washington
square to Central park. From city hall
up, Broadway looses itself in a maze of
color. Each building, without exception,
has something in the way of decoration.
Many have original and striking designs,
all having reference, of course, to Colum
bus and the greatnes of his new world.
To describe each in detail would be impos-'
Two Iteautiful Triumphal Arches.
At Twenty-second street a big triumphal
arch has leen erected. The arch is held in
place by six imitation granite pillars en
twined with ml, white and blue bunting.
Palms, flowers and potted plants filled the
space lietween. Flags are lavished over the
main structure. At night colored lights
will give brilliancy to the scene. By all
odds the most interesting and most beauti
ful thing in the way of decoration
Is the crch r.panning Fifth avenue
at Fifty-eighth street. it is imitation
marble. The design-is chaste and tasteful.
Two Parian marble columns on each side
inclose niches, in each of which is a grace
ful sculptural representation of peace. The
pillars are entwined with greenery and gar
lands hang from t he top. Surrounding the
arch are five allegorical female figures. The
central ouo stands lolily in the prow of the
advancing bot. On either side are two
heralds with outstretched urms. On the
top of the arch is the inscription: "The
United States of America in Me
morium. Glory to Christufer Columbus."
BEGINNING THE CELEBRATION.
rirfct Two Hays D.voW i to Church Ser
vices CLiidrrn n Parade.
The celebration liegiin Saturday with re
ligious service's in all the Jewish syna
gogues. The Hebrews, French, Portu
guese, Poles, Germans, Russians, Syrians
and Americans met in their respective
houses of worship and, engaged in special
ervices. Songs, sermons and cemmuuies
were all in honor of God and the Genoese
who led the way to a new1 Canaan. Two
French war vessels, the A re th use and
Bulaard, arrived Saturday , morning by
way of Sandy Hook sod -win met by the
United States cruiser Philadelphia, which
escorted them to quarantine. Salutes were
fired from Fort Wadsworth and returned
by the visitors. The two vessels are to
take part in the naval parade tomorrow.
Christian Churches Celebrate.
Yesterday the Christian churches took
up the celebration. Both in lioman Cath
olic and Protestant churches the sen-ices
were of the most impressive character.
The more important services were held in
St. Peter's cathedral where Archbishop
Corrigan celebrated high mass; Trinity
church; Grace church, where the Rev. Dr.
Huntington preached, and the Madison
Square Presbyterian church, in which the
services were conducted by the Rev. Dr.
Parkhurst. The sermons at all the serv
ices took the discovery of the New World
for the real text, whatever the form of
words doini; that duty.
At Other Prominent Churches.
Special services were also held in the
Fourth Presbyterian, Dr. Kerr; Asbury
church, Dr. Stone; All Souls' church. Rev.
T. G. Williams; Bloomingdale church, ltev.
M. C. Peters; Church of the Messiah, Rev.
Rolxirt Collyer; Calvary Baptist, Rev. Dr.
McArthnr, and innumerable others. In
fact, it would be diffiult to find a church in
which the day was not celebrated. In ac
cordance with the proclamation of the pres
ident the day was generally observed in the
Brooklyn churches of all denominations by
commemoration services, both morning and
evening. The pastors in nearly every in
stance preached sermons that dealt with
the life of Columbus or the country which
he discovered. In the Protestant Episcopal
churches an especial musical programme
Great Parade of the Schools.
This morning at 10 o'clock the school
and college parade began at Fifth avenue
and Fifty-seventh street and was dislianded
at Fourth street and University place. The
thousands of children and college students
in the line made a magnificent display of
the youth of the city. This great gather
ing was the event of the day. At S p. m.
two features of the celebration will open. At
Carnegie Music hall Pratt's cantata,
''The Triumph of Columbus," willbegiv-
en, and the loan art exhibition will be form
ally ojiened at the Academy of Design.
Other concerts and receptions will Ik? given,
but the feature of the night will be the
illumination of Brooklyn bridge.
Perfect Police Arrangements.
The police arrangements for Columbus
week are perfect. The full force will be
on active duty. Signal telephone boxes
have been placed at intervals along the
line of march of the several processions
with quick methods of communication lc
tween the line of march and the hospitals,
so that ready means of assistance in cases
of accident that may be had. Each of these
boxes will have a police surgeon and
loard of health physician on duty contin
ually. Nothing will be spared in the way
of keeping the city free of thieves and sus
picious characters during the progress of
the celebration. All persons known or sus
pected to be thieves will lie arrested. Thirty-six
nu n were locked up on Saturday and
were remanded in the police court yesterday
for a week, w hen the jub'lee will Ik? over.
IT WAS BABY FRIEDA WHO DIED.
Mistake That Was Made by the New York
NewYokk, Oct. 10. Mrs. Koenig and
her children arrived on the steamship Bo
hemia. They were bound for Chicago.
Mrs. Koenig and two of her children were
stricken with cholera and died on Hoff
man island. The youngest child, a girl
named Frieda. 10 months old, was reported
to have escfiT-d the scourge, but when
relatives made inquiries for the child she
could not be found, neither aboard the
fchip nor on Hoffman island. .
Karl Ivoenig Found Alive.
Saturday when the passengers were laud
ed from the Bohemia at Ellis Island, a boy
was found alone who said his name was
Karl Koenig, and that his mother had died
on Hoffman island. He said his sister was
still almard the ship. The immigration au
thorities were very much surprised, suppos
ing Karl to have been one of the chols ra
victims. It now seems that an error has
been made,and that baby Frieda was among
those who died.

Thi Illinois Statesman Vses Few Words
in His Acceptance.
New York, Oct. 10. The following
letter has been received at the Democratic
national headquarters. It is addressed to
Hon. W. F. Ilarrity, chairman Democratic
national committee, and dated Blooming
ton, Ills., Oct. 3;
Mr Dear Sue: I have returned home
after a very satisfactory visit to the south.
I have read with great pleasure Mr. Cleve
land's letter of acceptance. I am in full
accord with him upon all the questions
discussed. Ably and tersely he reflects the
vie ws of the Democratic party upon the
currency question. I need hardly say to
you that I fully and earnestly indorse that
part of his letter. He is the able exponent
of the Democratic doctrines. Should I le
elected I will to the best of my ability co
operate with him in giving practical effect
to the views contained in his letter. Yours
very truly, A. II Stevenson.

THE PEOPLE NOT APATHETIC.
Senator Sherman Says Tiiey Are Taking;
Intense Interest In the Canvass.
Philadelphia, Oct. 10. Senator John
Sherman arrived in this city Saturday
and was met by the committee of the Man
ufacturers'club.which has charge of the ser
ies of Republican meeftngs, which was in
augurated by theoneaddressedbyGovernor
McKinley. The senator's afternoon was
taken up largely by an impromptu recep
tion which he held in the suite of rooms
engaged for him at the Stratford. When
asked what he thought of the situation he
said: "The general idea is that there i-
a wonderful apathy in the canvass. This
may lie so, so far as the speechruaking is .
Kept the Senator Pretty Rusy.
"But the result of my observation has
been that this feeling does not extend to the
people. The public is taking a great part
in this canvass, and it is anything but apa
thetic. Its interest seems to be iu tense."
After the reception Senator Sherman ac
cepted the invitation of members of the
committee to take a ride through Fair
mount park. It was late when the party
returned, and the senator had barely time
to get his dinner before the committee
waited upon him to escort him to the Acad
emy of Music Twenty-five hundred people
were at the Academy at night to hear the
Other Political Meetings.
Saturday night Whitclaw Reid addressed
a Harlem, N. Y., audience for three min
utes, rain cutting the speech short.

Buzzards' Bat, Mass., Oct. 10. The
Clevelands took final leave of Gray Gables
Saturday evening. Mr. E. C. Benedict,
who had invited the Clevelands to accom
pany him on his steam yacht Oneida, was
determined that his mission should be ful
filled in spite of bad weather, and so about
5 p. m. the start was made, Mr. Cleveland
stopped at Greenwich, Conn., and left for
New York today. Mrs. Cleveland will re
main at Greenwich indefinitely.
Threw Anotner Dynamite Bomb.
Pittsburg, Oct. 10. An attempt to blow
up the tool-house at the Twenty-ninth
street mill with dynamite was made Sat
urday morning shortly after 12 o'clock.
The lxunb which caused the explosion must
have been a poorly constructed affair, as it
failed to go off properly and the buildings
were but slightly shattered. The echoes
from the explosion had hardly died away
when the men working near the fence were
startled again by some persons on the
other side throwing stones and bricks at
them. No arrests.
