New York, Oct. 11. Tbe city is literally
crowded with visitors from all parts of the
country, and it is computed that fully 250,
000 visitors were here yesterday. Nearly
all the hotels are full and unless rooms
have been engaged in advance transient
customers find considerable difficulty in
securing accommodations. Most of the

grand success. Accor.lin.; to liberal esti
mates there were 25.MK) in line, and the

anil arranged in such manner as to show
the national shield r.:id fag they were lo
sated on stands on the line of march, where
they sans patriotic so;:;;? that were fre
quently drowned by t'-.e I'-b-st cheers with
which they were greet ed by the boys as
they trudged past.

At the head of the procession were Hon.
John L. Hunt, president of the board of

In Madison square there were stands ca

enter of the largest there was the review
stand. Among those seated there were
Vice President Levi P. Morton, Secretary
of the Treasury Foster, Governor Flower
and his staff. Governor Tillman, of South
Carolina; United States Marshal Jacobus,
anil many local ofiiuials. Here Vice Presi

won them continuous and well-merited applause.
A Signinrum Incident.
The line of march was quite long and the
boys were well (satisfied to disband when
they reached Fourth street. Karly yester
day morning a score of school boys gave
evidence of their patriotism in the rather
demonstrative way of tearing down a Iirit
ish flag and tnuiiplin-; it under foot. It was
displayed with no ot tier flag bef ore a cigar
store in Harlem by an enthusiastic English
man. The boys demanded that he either
raise an Americ"i: i!:ig or take down the
Uritish colors;. This he refused to do. The
I toys charged upou tho flag and down it
came, and in a few minute; it was tern into
a hundred bits. ,
PYROTECHNICS ON THE BRIDGE.
Darkness Helens I'ntil the ri reworks Man
Culls for Lights,
Thousands upon Uiousandsof pairsof eyes
witnessed on the New York and Brooklyn
bridge last night a pyrotechnic exhibition
of unexcelled splendor. The scene from the
Tribune tower was gorgeous, lurid, won
derful. At 8 o'clock, when cars on the
great structure had ceased running, all
that could be seen was a string of electric
lights and the dim cut line of the towers,
backgrounded by the dense black of night.
Far above tbe few twinkling stars shed no
light; below the moving lignts on river
Sraft threw but little radiance on the dark
waters. This river scene resembled a pan
orama of huge dimensions. The going in
tnd out of multi-colored lights; the weak
outline of masts and rigging, cabin houses
nd smokestacks; search lights throwing
H reams of clear light over moving and
passmz craft presented a lively scene.
Cnderiroes a Transformation.
Suddenly there was a sound as of distant
thunder and a hundred detonating shells
announced the commencement of the even
ing's programme. Then there was a blaze
f light which lit np the entire bridge; lit
tK moving spectacles on the water and
showed the crowded mass of humanity on
land. The heavens were aglow as though
by a reflection of a great conflagration.
Slowly the glow died away and the towers
of the bridge cast great black shadows on
the flowing water as of a giant hand laid
upon them. From the New York towel
appeared in fiery figures "Hffi," and from
the tower on the other side 4-lSt2" blamed
forth. Then from the summit of eithef
tower blazed a great anil magical light,
blue at first, changing to blood red, living
a strange, unearthly tint the connecting
span of the two cities, the ships and the
Loud and Contiuned Applause.
From the river came the sound of
whistles, and bells loud and sonorous,
that mingled ivith the applar.se of the sight
seeing people, carrying above thecity acon
used and muffled roar. Screens of Koman
dust followed bursting shells; screaminit
eagles of fire mingled with rockets and
aerial shafts and showers of sparks, until
the whole ended in the golden shower fac
simile of Niagara, covering the bridge from
tower to tower, realistic and wonderful.
Some of the pieces given were: Two gas
lmlloons, with aerial fireworks, volley of
ten 25-pound liomls, battery of magnesium
Roman candles, fire of thirty IS-pound
shells with variegated stars, jewel tipped
golden column, flight of screaming eagle
rockets, flight of twenty Impound bombs
with stars of silver, batteries of 250 Koman
candles, great bouquet of rockets, forming
an aerial wheat sheaf, then came. The
Niagara spectacle, and following that the
final bouquet of rockets and a salute of 1"0
detonating shells, indicating that the pro
gramme was at au end.
They Were All There Again.
The crowds that witnessed the spectacle
Were beyond precedent. It seemed as
though all the people of the great city had
rushed like a great wave to the waterside,
fillini docks and piers and lxiats, swarm
ing riggings, streets, wagons, everything
and everywhere. The windows, roofs awl
fire escapes of buildings all over the down
town district were black with spectators.
Wherever a sight of the bridge could be ob
tained there were people in numliers that
crowded and pushed, fought and scram
bled for the better place. For hours the
people hurried towanl the southern part
of the city, and many were still on their
way w hen the spectacle was at an end.
A Great dam at the Close.
T5ut if the ; itherinj' of the crowds was a
sight of wonder and confusion, the disjwrse
ment was stiii more so. In assembling the
gathering had bet n comparatively slow and
gradual. It had occupied hours. It was
much different HX the conclusion of the en
tertainment. Kveryltody wanted to get
home at once. Streets were blocked; ele
gantly dressed women made slow and un
certain progress by the side of watermen;
children cried in their mothers' arms;
strong men tried to protect feeble women,
nnd they had all they could do to protect
themselves. Surface cars moved slowly
and w i re packed.
Didn't Oct Home Till Morning.
Thousands waited for cars that could
only accommodate tens. In the down town
stations of the elevated roads confusion was
everywhere. Platforms groaned under the
weight -of humanity; narrow stairways
Were crowded to an ' extent scarcely to le
realized, while long lines of weary waffers
extended a block from each station. Hours
after the spectacle had been concluded the
streets in the lower part of the town were
still thronged with people whose opHr
t unity for getting home seemed to be yet
Start ot the Naval Parade.
Today at 12:30 the naval parade started,
that late hour having Teen selected on ac
count of the tide. It is a magnificent sight.
The ships of war of the United States and
visiting nations formed in two lines and
start ed for the Narrows, headed by the
torpedo boat Cashing. Salutes were fired
by the forts as the ships passed by. The
ships will go through two lines of mer

there tuid retrace their course. The whole
waterfront of the city from which a view
can lie obtained, every Kint of vantage on
lirooklyn Heights and elsewhere aliout the
hariMr is packed with jeople, while the
water is covered with all sorts of craft,
wherever they are permitted.

The announcement was made that Presi

the city for a short time tomorrow, but
that he must hurry back to Washington
to the Ixslside of his wife. Word was tils.)

MRS. HARRISON MUCH WORSE.
A Serious ICelapse Alarms the White
Washington, Oct. 11. Mrs. Harrison
was much worse last night. For several
days past she has been unable through
sheer lack of strength to do the slightest
thing for herself, her attendants lifting and
turning her every half hour to make her
as comfortable as possible. Late last even
ing she was suddenly taken worse, the re
lapse being so serious as to alarm the entire
household and get the president from his
bed. Dr. Gardiner was hastily summoned,
and after some effort succeeded in bringing
Mrs. Harrison around.
Another Attack Might Be Fatal.
He left shortly before midnight, leaving
word to be sent for at the first indication of
a relapse." At 1 o'clock this morning the
entire household of the executive mansion
was up, deeply concerned and fearful of a
return of the attack, and which, unless
Mrs. Harrison was promptly relieved.might
prove fatal. The accumulation of mucus
in the chest is likely to choke her to death.
Every precaution of course has been taken,
but it is now believed that the end is close

New Chileans, tint. 11 The sugar
planters of Si. Mary's parish determined
that their field liar.ds should have no cause
of complaint, and to avoid any strikedur
ing the busy grinding season held a meet'
iug at Franklin hist week and agreed on a
tariff of prices for labor in gathering and
working up tbe sugar crop for the present
season. The standard for field hands is
1.25 per day and 50 cents per watch for
those who are employed in the sugar
houses. Each watch is of six hours' dura
tion, and a Ialiorvr may stand three watch
es out of twenty-four hours and earn $1.50.
