the fleet of warships consisting of all which
had been for a week at Norfolk, with the
addition of the cruiser Dim it ri Donsoukoi,
the Argentine cruiser Neuvo !.? Julio, and
the United States monitor Miantonomah
The Multitude on Shore.
All along this line of ships, reaching
from Thirty-fourth to Eighty-ninth streets,
the shores were packed with the people of
this and surrounding cities. The heights
were black with sightseers, w hile crowded
until there was hardly room to move on all
the water surface not appropriated to the
ships were thousands of w.tter craft of
every description, all alive with excited
and holiday-making humanity. All the
ships were dressed in bunting of every na
tion and the space separating the two lines
was sufficient to pe rmit the Dolphin and
her consorts to pass between with plenty
f room for the war vessels to s.nlute as she
passed. The Dolphin's consorts were the
Blake (United State? co;t.-t survey steamer)
and Monmouth, the former carrying the
members of the diplomatic corps and the
latter the senators ami represent it; ves,
governors and other distinguished visitors.

The anchor of the Dolphin was soon up
and she slowly steamed between the lines
of ocean terrors. Beginning at the lower
end she passed along to the head of the
line where were anchored the U. S. S. llag
rtiip Philadelphia and the Uritish Hag . hip

the stern of the Miatitonomah, the hist
ship on the port line, that the event nf the
day began to occur.

As her bow was opposite the Miantnno

the national air and the populace on the
shore split the heavens with cheers.
Steaming slowly along the line,
the Fame programme was performed 1 y
every ship in line, and never in the history
of the city was their such a noise. Arriving
at the head of the line the Dolphin cast
anchor and all the commanding officers
left their ships and went on board to pay
their respects to the chief magistrate.

As the spectacle ended the crowds on the

scene full of animation was presented,
scarcely less interesting than the great

followed instantly by a flash of flame and
a dull boom at Fort Wadsworth. Up
through the narrows came the vessels and
soon those with glasses could make out
the Philadelphia and lila'ie at the head of
Goirmor'i Inland Salutes.
On they came, keeping time and distance
like veteran soldiers, and soon the whole
magnificent spactacle was iu view. As
Governor's Island was passed the fort's
guns boomed out a salute, and shortly after
the Miantonomah thundered away iu honor
of the unveiling of the statue to Ericsson,
which had at that moment occurred at the
Battery. The Hiake, with her two great
tapering buti colored smokestacks and ma
jestic mien, caught the faucy of the crowd.
She moved along as if held in check, and
appeared to be going slowly, although she
was making nine miles an hour. She car
ried a guard flag (a white field crossed with
crimson bars) at her foremast-head, and
floated the naval ensign of Great Britain at
The View from the ltattery.
Those who were fortunate enough to ob
tain a "place on the Battery had a splendid
view of the naval parade, for they passed
close by as they steamed into the river. It
was over in half an hour, for by that time
the two lines, closed by the Miantonomah
and Republica, had gone by and the peo
ple who lined the- shores and packed the
declivities of the river banks were the fa
vored ones, and they cheered themselves
hoarse as the white ships o their own
navy, making a showing that was not
elclipsed by the visitors, came into view
and passed. As the end of the parade was
reached the ships slowed down and at a
signal from the Philadelphia thirty odd
massive anchors splashed in tha water au.i
the parade was ended.

Fierce Struggle for Domination on the
Sioux Citt, la., April 27. Three more '
extensive failures have occurred here di- j
rectly resulting from the Union Loan anl :
Trust company's assignment. The Sioux '
City Dry Goods company, by A. S. Garret-
fen, president, made a general assignment.
The schedules show assets of $371,169.04,
consisting of the stock of wholesale dry
goods, credits and 30,000 on deposit with
the Union Loan and Trust company. The
liabilities are $:.32,00i', nearly nil due to
eastern and Chicago jobbers. The com
pany did all its backing through the Trust
company. It assigns to W. F. Thomas anil
the business will continue till the company
can be reorganized.
The Other Two ltnsiness Crashes.
The Sioux City Dressed Beef and Can
ning company, by its treasurer, Ed Haak
inson, made a general assignment to II. J.
Taylor. The assets, consisting of the pack
ing plant, a line of refrigerator cars, etc..
are SSi!,730; liabilities are -'!5,000, of which
HC'.'.tWO is due to the Union Loan and
Trust company. The Interstate Invest
ment company deeded away about fcjOO.000
of property mainly to its own stockholders.
Its affairs were complicated with those of
the Union Loan and Trust company which
compelled the transfers. Mechanics liens
amounting to $55,575 were filed against the
new Union depot, almost completed. It is
owned by tbe Sioux City Terminal and
Mixed I'p with a Railway Deal.
All work on the depot has been stopped.
President Hodges, of the Union Stock
Yards company (which had already failed),
nates that the company will have to be re
organized. Some time ago there were nego
tiations between the now disrupted syn
dicate that ow-ns the Sioux City Northern
and Pacific Short Line railroads and the
terminal properties and Union station here,
and President James J. Hill, of the Great
Northern system, looking to a sale of the
property to Mr. Hill's road. Somehow the
deal hung fire, and the investment com
pany couldn't wait. The Sioux City
Engine works has sued the Sioux National
bank for $110,000. The engine company
had $35,000 deposited with the Union Loan
and Trust company. It demanded the
money, and was given a draft on the Col
umbia National bank, of Chicago, for the
amount. This was placed in the Sioux Na
tional for collection and the Columbia
bank refused to pay. The $110,000 is the
ngsregate of the $35,000 deposit and $75,000
damages the engine works thinks due it.
GOING TO BE A "GIGANTIC" FIGHT.
Or a Ituy-Out of All the Wlilsy Trust's
Chicago, April 27. By the action of a
meeting of the directors of the American
Distillers' and Cattle Feeders' association
held at the Auditorium hotel it is more
than probable that one of the most gigan
tic fights ever witnessed in the whisky mar
ket his been inaugurated. This action
was the determination to issue bonds to
meet the necessary expenses to bny out
the present distributors of the company's
product, and if this cannot be accom
plished then to make the company its own
distributor a'ni establish the plants
throughout the country which such a step
involves. How much the amount will be
cannot ot the moment be exactly esti
mated. Ia fact the gathering adjourned to meet
again next montli, by which time those as
signed the duty will be able to present a
statement making clear the point. There
are, however, fifty-two distributors. The
plants of some of these, according to Mr.
Grcenhut. would le valued from $.00,000
to $300,000. Therefore it is pretty safe to
assume that the bonds will be issued for
any sum ranging from $10,000,000 to $15,
IH.H',000. Mr. Greenhut frankly acknowl
edged that the course now resolved upon is
compulsory if the association of which ha
is president is to maintain its position. He
repoit-'d the same to the meeting held re
cently at Peoria and the stockholders cave
the turectors full power to act.
That tbe tesult of the Meeting will lead
to a lengthy :md bitter tight would seem
inevitable. The combine's principal oppo
nents are: Tbe American Distilling com
pany and the Globe Distilling company.
Pekin, Ills: a new distillery now being com
pleted at IVcria; one at Belleville; two ia
St. Louis, the Wolz house and the Ham
mond house; one about to be operated at
Om.iht. Neb.; one in Uniontown. Ky.: two
at Cincinnati; one in Portsmouth. O. ; two
in Louisville. Ky.; cue at ll.tltimi.-re and
one at Philadelphia.
That their competition is by n- means
insignificant is shown by tbe act ion of the
trust in reducing the price of spirits and
alcohol by one cent jer gallon, nviuing it
now $1.18. This was done,- G-eenhiit ad
mits, for the purpose of nieetin;: t "tie prices
of the concerns tunned. Given hut ma le
the following statement after the meeting:
'"Our actiou has been mde necessary by
the conduct of the distributors iu veiling
at arbitrary profits. This reduced our
trade by enabling opposition distilleries to
undersell lis. Of course the amotiut re
quired for our vurpuse will be large, but
it will be raised. As to the general effect
of our action it will cheapen whUky."

N'E'V Yokk, April '-'7. llu mors of a re

dated bonds is due on May t. and, it is
stated, will be pnid.
