Two Parades on the Same Iay The Night
Pageant and the llmti Described A
Crowd Mo Tremendous as to Mar the
Success Somewhat Miles of Troops and
Societies March Through the Streets in
the Day Demonstration Monument to
Columbus Vnveiled Salient Features of
the Two Events.
Xew York, tlct. 10. The "historic and
Industrial niht pageant," which closed
the outdoor part of the Columbian cele
brat ion last nisiht, was something of a dis
appointment. There were many difficul
ties to contend with. The crowds of people
were simply so vast as to be absolutely
unmanageable. They were good-natured;
they raised no disturbances; but there were
simply too many of them. The line of
parade from the Bittcry to Fifty-eighlh
street was enclosed by a wall as solid as if
it had been masonry, for all parade pur
poses, and it was therefore an hour and
three-quarters after the appointed time be
fore the pageant was put in motion. It
was to have started a 8 o'clock; the first
of the tableaux did not reach the Astor
house until 10:30. It was 9:45 before even
a preliminary indication of what was com
in was vouchsafed to the waiting spec
tators. 1 .inttfnl KIcctrical Kflects.
The preliminary part of the proceedings,
a parade of bicyclers, some of them dressed
in fantastic costumes to represent Indians,
etc., was somewhat tame and tedious, but
the crowd still waited patiently, though
with strange misgirings on the " part of
many of them as to reaching home before
morning. Jersey men on the Brooklyn side
of Broadway and Brooklyn men on the Jer
sey side found it utterly impossible to force
a passage across the intervening street, and
many curious perplexities were the reeuls.
The leading feature was the application of
electricity to displays of this kind. So far
as regards tue illumination of the city this
Trie Press, Music and Science.
Tableau 8 "The Press" had a youthful
figure, supposed to be the genius of the
press, standing upon an immense bottle of
ink and surrounded by pages, each bearing
a shield, upon which the name of a paper
was emblazoned. At the rear of the car
was a printing press, with compositors at
work setting type.
Tableau a "'Music" showed a gigantic
pyre, with the goddess of harmony floating
ovea t, while St. Cecilia played the organ
in the background, and an orchestra was
grouped around her dressed to represent
notes of music.
Tableau 10 depicted "Science"" carrying a
reproduction of the great Lick telescope
and n astronomer was shown attempting
to study the geography of Mars, which
was jealousiy guarded by the moon. Cru
cibles and other scientific implements rep
resented other branches of science.
The Typical American ;irl.
Tableau 11 "American Women," was
decorated with cupids, hearts, coronets,
etc., and represent.il the typical American
girl seated in a rocking chair jxiised on the
world, to whom a weak individual in male
attire was handing over his pocket book
Tableau 12 showed the Atlantic and Pa
cific oceans typified as an emperor find
empres, with nymphs and sirens in atten
dance, and the Atlantic cable encircling
Tableau 13 "Columbia's Ship of State,"
was a Roman galley rowed by twelve CYn
tnrians and containing a bust of Wash
ington surrounded by all the subsequent
presidents down to Grant.
Klectricity lo-.es the Circuit.
Tableau 14 and last was "Klectra." In
other words, electricity. It was the most
successful of all. Klectra was shown in a

was a splendid success, without qualifica
tion. It is almost iniiossible to conceive of
anything finer than some of the electrical
enVc-ts produced on public and private
buildings on the line of march by the use
of colored electric lights.
The Floats Come Along at Last.
The scenes presented were conveyed
alo;:.-; the line of parade upon floats drawn
by horses. The first was "Fame." The
goddess was depicted as a winged figure
flying over the earth and spreading the
news of Columbus' discovery through the
traditional trumet to the four corners.
Masquerading figures, following on foot,
lepresented the early triles of Indians, the
cave dwellers and others supposed to Lave
inhabited this continent at the time of

tained groups of cave- dwellers and the
earlier forms of vegetation during the era
of mastodons and oilier forms of extinct
creatures of the carboniferous epoch. An
escort of sixty flgunes. supposed to repre

panied the float on fxt.
Represented the .ztecs.
Tableau 3 "The Stta Worshipers,"
showed an Inca high priest sacrificing a
human victim to the sun at the foot of the
Toltec pyramid. The heathen deitv was
shown seated in a colossal sun. watching
chariot, curbing an immense electric
hydra, from whose eyes and mouth flames
of electricity darted, and whose whole
form glistened with incadescent lamns.
At the rear of the car were thirty girls in
metallic costumes, with electric lights
grouped all about them. Six other women

and longitude were indicated by electric
lines. 1 hese rows of lights revolved in op
posite directions with striking effect.

the sacrifice, while clouds of incense ascend
from the censors swung by Aztec warriors.
latieau4 "A ictory of Genius" was
typical of the triumph of Columbus, and
was presented by the Italian society of
"Union ami Fraternity," who escorted it in
the procession in a body.
Description of the Columbus Float.
The tableau was called the "Statue of Col
umbus." Upon a tall pedestal Columbus
stood as the pioneer of western civilization.
Au allegorical ligure of historv held a lau
rel wreat li atxwe his hruul. Fame stood be
side him and nt the front of the car Amer
ica was shown seated with Spain and Italy
on either ha ml. In tie roar two Indians
appeared. Following this car were repre
sentations of th-.? court of Ferdinand and
IsaIh-IIu, including a court cavalcade on
horseback, represented by the Spanish
American colony in Xew York; and also a
model of Columbus' vessel, the Santa Ma
ria, drawn by horses. Among other char
acters represented were Johu Alden and
Friscilla, and scenes from the life of the
The Capitol and Liberty.
Tableau 6 "Tue Capitol" was one of the
most effect ive of the pageant. It held a
model 12 feet in height of the Capitol at
Washington. The familiar columns and
domes were lighted inside and out by elec
tricity. A number of young ladies, daugh
ters of veterans, were seated around the
Capitol, holding the shields of the forty

A Procesnion That Took Over Five Hour
. to Pass a t.iven Point.
XEW YoilK, Oct. 13. Fur live hours and
twenty minutes yesterday a column of
men passed the reviewing stand in Madi
son square. The nuiulier of men in line,
the number of people who saw the parade
and went away wondering, and the deco
rations of the fourscore thousand build
ings exceeded by half that which had been
expected. Xot since old Father Knicker
bocker settled on Manhattan island has
there lieen a crowd that compared in num
lers with that of yesterday. There wire
people here from every state in the union,
from every country on the glole. As far
as the eye could reach up and down the bij:
thoroughfares were men and women, and
children, horses ami wagons and street
cars and carts, buggies and carriages, in
such a jumble of confusion that one wa
prone to wonder how the police would ever
get the streets cleared for the parade.
