respect to magnificence of decoration and

legislative body of the United States and

the garden were rich and elaborate, eclips

ruby eyes guarded the 'Madison avenue en-'

In the centre of the garden thousands of :

smiling cupid whose fair wins were
Studded with miniature lamps and who '
held in his hands a chain of various color- '

was composed of many colored lights
whose hues were constantly changing.
Surrounding this beautiful arch
was a grove of palms and large
foliage plants and half hidden amidst their

guarded t he entrance to the garden. Across
the rear cf the amphitheatre in large letters
of light, were the words: "A Xew World s
Welcome." A magnificent model of the
Capitol at Washington, created out of
white cape flowers and illuminated with
electric lighus, rested upon the stace of the
assembly room. A miniature reproduction
of the grounds in natural plants surrounds
it. The balcony pillars were twined with
smilax and flowers, and the entire roof of
the garden was hung with a canopy of
white and gold, dependant from which
were hundreds of clusters of t lie flags of.
Arrival of the dicst.
Two bands furnished the music in the '
ball room. lender's orchestra of eighty '
string pieces played the music for the '
dancers and Rogers Seventh Regiment
band of sixty pieces played during the in- '
termissions and promenades. The doors of .
the garden were thrown open at 9 o'clock '
and almost immediately afterwards the '
guests began to arrive. The naval officers
were met by a special commit tee at the !
foot of West Forty-second street and from
there taken in carriages to the garden.
The president having other engagements
during the evening did not arrive with his
party until some time after the ball ha i
been announced to begin at 10 o'clock.
New York City Wat Receiving.
Mayor Gilroy, at the head of the munici
pality, and Mrs. Gilroy officially received
the guests of the evening. They stood
upon the reception dais and just behind
them were stationed the committee of one
hundred and the honorary committees
who escorted the more distinguished of the
guests from the entrance to their boxes.
Some of these honorary committees were
as follows: President Cleveland Comp
troller Myers, Colonel George 13. McClel-
lan, William II. Clark and Francis Land ,
Stetson. Members of the cabinet Ex- J
Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Tracy, I
with aides. Duke de Veragua General
Horace Porter, Cornelius N. Bliss, John
Austin Stevens. Admiral Gherardi Ex
Mayor Hewitt, with aides. Admiral of
the British fleet Edward Cooper.
Entrance or tbe Chief Magistrate.
Each of the guests was introduced to
the mayor first come first served, with no
precedence the idea being to make the
affair thoroughly republican. The presi
dent, however, was not escorted to the
mayor's reception dais when he arrived a
half hour before midnight, but was met at
the entrance by the escort of honor. The
bands at his appearance played "Hail to
the Chief" the only piece played in honor
of any of the guests and Mayor Gilroy ad
vanced to meet him. After the formal in
troduction the president and his party
were escorted to the box they were to oc
cupy. The programme of dances was a very
simple one. There were -no distinctive
figure dances during the evening.
Reception and Land l'arade.
This afternoon the laud celebration is
going on. There are 1,300 United States
marines ia the parade, drawn from the
fleet in the harbor, and a number of com
panies from the foreign vessels. Previous
to the parade there was a reception by the
mayor to the officers of the naval review.
The streets are packed with people and
the parade is a brilliant one.
MERCHANT MARINE PARADES.
It Is a Sort of Free-for-AU Affair and
After the officers of the fleet had boarded
the lJolphin at the close of the naval re
view a scene took place that was both ex
citing and interesting. The merchant ma
rine ana this included everything in the
shape of craft that was sufficiently staunch
to float, and all crowded with sightseers
was signaled to get away. The Seabird,
with the committee on board, rounded the
head of the double column of men-of-war
and started down the river on the New
York side. The Al Foster followed, and the
police pairoi ... .... iv two.

Kverjho.ly Wei.t Wild.
Then followed one of the most remark
able siuhts ever enacted on the waters of
the river or in the harbos. Kach and every
One of the ninny kinds of vessels seemed,
to have gone wild. They vied with one
another in trying to gee who would make
the most noise. From the big steamer to
the smallest of yachts it was all the same.
Tbe whistles of all continued shriekfcig
and tooting, salutes to the foreign ships.
From the big excursion steamer came cheer
after cheer. From the tailing yachts,
with their sails furled and in tow of tugs,
one gun was fired as each yacht came
abreast of a foreign man-of-war.
Was a Terrific Commotion-
The commotion has never been equalled
in the Hudson river. Clouds of steam rose
from the tugs and blew across the men-of-war,
the crews of the mcn-of war faced
the rail and waved hats and handkerchiefs
at the noisy tugs and steamboats as they
passed. The whistles of the tugs ami
steamers kept up a continual tooting and
blowing from tbe time they were given
permission to start until the lower end of
the long line of the squadron was reached.
The monotony of the whistles was varied
sirens on several tugs and fire boats,
i he bands from the steamboats crowded
to the side tovviird the men-of-war and
many of the steamers seemed in imminent
danger of liein. capsized. They went
down the river with one paddle wheel in
the air, the guards under water and the
starboard deck awash.
And It Lasted Tivo Hours.
For two hours the procession continued
to pass, and at times nearly blockaded the
limited space. The three vessels that ex
