New York, August20.-New York
and the nation today fitly signalized
the appreciation of the public for
her victorious fleet. The imposing
naval pagoant of warships was re

the ovation from shoro and fiom the

police boat Patrol. The Patrol then 0
headed for the flagship, which with t
colors flying and bands playing, lay
off Staten Island, whose shores were
literally lined with people, ard they
joined in tihe great acclamation with
the people on the myriads of boats.
