Buzzell, chairman, had been making extensive preparations for the city’s celebration Monday, July 5th. Two companies had been at work several days decorating the public buildings, business houses and private residences. Flags ga lore of all sizes and designs were iloating in every direction, giving the city a very gala appearance. The only discord in the entire arrangement was the series of showers beginning Saturday afternoon and continuing until the hour announced for the parade, 10 a. m. Monday. It was impossible to prepare floral floats or deco rate autos for the business firms, stores, etc. Supt. Roderick, Principal Foster and several or tne teachers worked in a sharp shower Monday morning on school common to decorate the floats with bunt ing and arrange the school children in costume for the principal scenes of the school historical pageant. The result of their energy w’as most commendable and the floats very picturesque. The U. S. S. Florida, P. M. Olmsted, captain, M. K. Metcalf and L. D. Causey, commanders, arrived at 3.15 p. m. Satur day and remained at anchor olT The Bat tery shore until 5 a. m. Tuesday. The committee consisting of James H. Howes, B. L. Davis, W. L. West, M. L. Slugg, R. R. Rogers, Alfred Johnson and H. C. Buz zell, paid a formal visit to the Florida and welcomed her officers and crew to the city. Mayor Wescott was absent on busi ness. Thj officers were given auto rides about the city and vicinity, were enter tained at a lobster dinner Monday at the Windsor Hotel and were guests at the Fair grounds for the oration of the day the races and the sports. Sunday the Florida's band under the direction of Bandmaster Lewis gave an excellent concert in the Armory, being driven from the Post Office square by the rain. Crowds of people visited the ship during Sunday and Monday. THE U. S. S. FLORIDA The Florida wastwo and one-half years building, was placed in commission in 1911 and cost over $10,000,000. She is 510 feet long, 28 1-2 feet draft and her displacement is 21,825 tons, She carries ten 12-inch turret, twelve 5-inch secon dary and two 3-inch anti-aircraft guns; with two submerged torpedo tubes. She has 63 officers and 1321 men. Her bun kers hold 2560 tons of coal and her speed rating is 22.08 knots. Her engines devel op 42,000 horse power. Her crew has all the advantages offered in any High school course. THE PARADE. The parade formed at 10 a. m. Monday on Court street opposite school common, the concert on Post Office square being given up on account of a shower. The line was led by Belfast police and two marshals, followed by the Florida’s band and about 400 of her men, including the marines many of whom wore their over seas medals. Her officers were in private autos. The Belfast Band, Murch Drum Major, preceded Mayor Wescott with members of the city government, the school pageant lloats, accompanied by the superintendent, school committee and teachers, members of Thomas H. Mar shall Post, G. A. R., and its allied bodies, Recruiting Army squad from Portland, under the direction of Private Eugene Smith with display of German war relics, private ‘citizens in decorated autoes, the Fire Department. There were also a num ber of clowns. The line of march was out Court to Franklin, down Franklin to Church, over Church to the junction of High, down High to junction of Church, up Church to Memorial Hall, where it disbanded. The presence of the Florida’s officers and crew wras most impressive, particularly the marines; as the defend ers of our country, since the world war, are held in veneration. THE SPORTS, E1C. Immediately after the parade the Fire Department gave an excellent demon stration on Church street under t'ie di rection of Chief S. S. L. Shute. The sports were under the direction of Harry A. Foster and began with a fine game of base ball on the Congress street grounds at 11 a. m. between the Florida Belfast and Camden teams. There was a large attendance. There was a tie at the 8th inning, but the Camden won with a Bcore of 4 to 2. McLellan umpired. AT THE FAIR GROUNDS. The grounds were also decorated and presented a fine appearance. The ora tion was by one of Maine’s most gifted orators, Rev. Henry E. Dunnack, now State Librarian, who gave a characteris tic address at 1 p. m. It would be impos sible to repeat the many bright things he said in his racy and witty discourse on the anniversaries, the day, the present mode of living and what it will lead up to. He has many admirers and personal friends in Belfast. The Belfast Band, J. Lee Ratterson leader, gave several excellent selections, assisted by Band Master Lewis of the Florida’s Band, who led one piece. One selection was also led by R. G.
