The Vexed Questln of a MIItary Parade Through the Heart of the City Neot Settled. CaroAao, Oct. 19.-The dedicatory cere monies of the World's Columbian exposi tlon were inaugurated to-day, beginning with the reception and entertainment of distinguished visitors, and followed this evening by the formal inaugural of the re eeption by eitizens to the guests of honor. A pleasing feature was the Columbus day celebration this afternoon by thousands of school children throughout the atcity. Elab orate arrangements were made to give the ceremonies that official character which should attend an enterprise of such inter national and representative importance, and the World's fair city was attired in costumes of many colors. From every important edifice in the city, from every peak and pinnacle, from every balcony and and window, were suspended colors invoked for the adornment of the occasion. The stars and stripes naturally predominated, Lut the colors of all nations mingled in producing a grand effect, though some times the stars and stripes were committed to .a triangle banner of terra cotta and white, selected by the city for the occasion. Portraits of Columbus were seen every where and for the first time since the na tional conventions the familiar features of political leaders were pulled down and ob soured by portraits of Columbus, Isabella or George Washington. Every trainbrung hundreds of visitors and many of the most important participants in the official cere monies are already on the ground. Vice President Morton arrived yesterday. To-day five special trains arrived over the Pennsylvania road in quick sucnession, bearing distinguished parties. Mem bers of President Harrison's cab inet, members of the United States supreme court and members of the diplomatic corps occupied three of them. 'They were met by the World's fair commit tee and conducted to their hotels, where Inieheon awaited them. Later in the day many of them paid a visit to the World's fair grounds. Gov. John Young Brown, of Kentucky, and Gov. Boyd, of Nebraska, ar rived this morning accompanied by their respective staffs, followed latter by Govy. Burke. of Noath Dakota, and his staff. Ad jutant General Stryker, of New Jersey, came as the representative of Gov. Abbott. Gov. Boies, of Iowa, Gov. F aneis, of Mis souri, and Gov. Toole, of Montana are haee. Fred Douglass is also among the arrivals. Police officials and detectives from many other cities are arriving here to assist the local police in looking after crooks. Among to-dar's arrivals are Capt. Moyster, Ser gennt Swigart and Detective Itavenekamp. T'o be added to the prominent eople al ready mentioned, as being here, must be Cardinal Gibbons and party, consistin , of Archbishop Satalli. papal delegate, Mon signor O'Connell and others. To a ball to-night 4,000 prominent citi zens were bidden to participate in a recep tion tendered to the president, vice-presi dent, ex-eresidents of the United States, repsentatives of foreign governments, gov ernors of states and territories, and other distinenished citizens. It took place at the Auditorium ball room and early in the evening brilliant scenes were witnessed thereabouts. A dense crowd of people were closely packed for henre viewing the bril liant decorations and notables as they ar rived. Once within the great auditorium the first impression was resulting from a flood of light almost dazzling to the unac customed eve. The on tain was raised and the flooring extended over the entire or chestra pit, smooth and tempting to danc ers. The lower tier of boxes extended in a circle around the rear of the stage, above which was located the orchestra. The silken banner of Spanish royalty was sus pended directly over the center of thestage. On either side and immediately over the boxes were banners, each containing the initials of Ferdinand and Isabella. In front of the organ was displayed large por traits on a shield senrmounted by a stand of colo:s, the stars and stripes in the cen ter, flanked on either side by the flags of all American republics. The corresponding position on the south side bore the shield of Spain, surmounted by Spanish colors. On either side were the flats of every nation in the old world, the colors of Spain and Italy being given the preference. Of flowers there were none among the decorations, but from Alabama had been brought a cur-load of wild smilax, which festooned the faces of the balcony and gallery, and so the great hall greeted the comming throng. Soon after the opening of the doors those responsible for the affair appeared, and the ladlie took up position to receive guests. People in balconies assumed an air of ex pectancy and the Marine bank broke forth into ama oh. Simultaneonsly Congress man Durborruw, with Vice-Presldent Mor tori alon his arm, ascended from the main foyer and followed by a procession of offi cial .dignitaries, proceeded with stately tread toward the ladies and gentle men who were to receive them. (Geian. and Mrs. Miles were Lrat in the line. The distinguished visitors were presuented to each lady and gentlenoen in tonn. After the vice-presiderent came the justices of the supreme court and members of the cabinet. Ex-President Hayes followed and was suc ceeded by Hon. Lambert Tree who escorted the members of the diplomatic corps, each arrayed with all the insignia and gihtter of his official position. Then cante Cardinil Gibbons and Cardinal Sna toli. After the reception from the balcony and gallery and upper boxes came guests and the the kaleidoscopic soene soon re solved into a promenaue. Two military oflicers led the grand march, into which the morvug throng merged itself. At the cloes of the march the orchestra took up a strain Bfloating into a quadrille, which set hnudreds of feet in rythmio motion. 'J he dances programme followed. At mid night the supper room was opened and the general pleasure of the ball increased by viands and delicaties. Amcong the distinguished guests at the reception tonight, we.e Vice President and and Miss Morton, Ez.l'resident and Mrs. Hayes, Chief Jastioe and Mrs, Fuller, and justices of the sunpreme ciurt, with their wives, members of the cabnet, a long list of diplumati notables, Cardinal Gibbons, Arehbishop Batolli, Archbishop Ireland, the governors of thi ty-fLve states with their wives and staffs, Admiral BIelknap, Generals Behofleid andt Miles and their wives, Hou.

Railroads to-day were nearly swamped in the tremendous rush of people. Extra 3 trains were counted only by the dozens and I every regular had extra cars attached. Probably never since the invention of the locomotive were roads so rushed. Visitors to the World's fair grounds to-day were I well repaid by the scene of color, activity c and animation. The grounds in the vicin- i it, of the mines and mining and transpor tation buildings swarmed with soldiers, additional troops arriving every hour. The I Iowa militia arrived in three special trains s over the Burlington road. They are under I command of Adjt.-Gan. George Green. Orders were published to-day constituting Jackson park a military encampment under the name of Camp Harrison. The com- I mand of all forces at the camp was given to a Brig.-Gen. Eugene A. Car.

Gen. Miles May Keep Hif Regulars In the Country. CHnCoao, Oct. 19.-A proposition made by Gen. Miles to have a night military parade Saturday next was not received with much favor at the city hall. Gen. Miles called on Mayor Washburne to-day to discuss the night parade plan. The mayor's objection was that the streets could not be sufficiently illuminated and that the crowds on the street being so large the work could not be satisfactorily done.. Whatever the outcome of the above project there will be a military parade Saturday in the public streets when everybody, whether governor or ordinary citizen, can see. This was positively de cided at the conference to-day between Gen. Ruse, Gen. Fitzsimmons, Col. Koch and others. Aside from federal soldiers, I 14.000 state troops will participate, making the largest massing of national guards on record. In an interview this evening Gen. Miles is quoted as making this tart talk: "I want to say that the pressof Chicago has insulted the vice president, the supreme I court and all other distinguished men. The papers say the peopleof Chicago don't care a continental about seeing those hundreds of distinguished visitors as they are es corted from the auditorium to Jackson park, but will rather see a lot of infantry marching at funeral pace. As a matter of fact the parade from the auditorium, con eisting of distinguished guests in carriages, esco ted by 1,600 cavalry and artillery, will be a fine military display." 20.000 Lads In Line. CrNCINwATI, Oct. 19.-Twenty thousand boys from the publie schools paraded the streets in honor of Columbus day this after noon. The youngsters were all provided with uniform caps. Each one carried a small American flag, producing an electri cal effect. The order observed in the par ride was better than that in an ordinary procession of men. A Carpenter's Carelessess. WEST WINiTED, Conn., Oct. 19.-Eight hundred public school pupils assembled in the rink to-night to practice a chorns of of national airs for the big Columbus day celebration. Tempoarv seates were erected in tiers to the height of fifteen feet.

A crowd was quickly on the spot and the children rescued, some with broken arms, legs, collarbones, and otherwise hurt. and spme unconscious. None were fatally hurt, however.

A TiltE Agalnst TLtle. NAivrr.rt, Tenn., Oct. 19.-rThe track was a trifle heavy. It was nearly five o'clock before Nancy Haniks apleared for a tilt against time and the atmespherre was raw and damn,.

DIXON AT GREAT FALLS, The Popular Congressman Is Greeted by an Ovation on His Appearanee. Masterly Addrees to the Voters That Can Not Fail to Have lffeot. Prof. Mahoney and Hon. W. M. Blekford -Miss Knowles at Missoula--seator Matte at Livingston. GRAT FALLS, Oct. 19.--[8pscial.]-The democrats held a suocessful and enthusias tic rally at the opera house to-night. The issues of the campaign were set forth in a elear and forcible manner by the distin guilshed candidate for congress, who held the attention of his audience for nearly an hour. He was followed by Prof. Mahoney, candidate for superintendent of publio in struetion, and Hon. W. M. Biokford. All were warmly received and closely listened to. Before speaking the fambeau club paradel the principal streets and made a splendid appearance, evoking merited ap plause, and escorted the speakers to the opera house. which was already full. The decorated stage was occupied by prominent democrats, inoluding a veteran named Jewell, who voted for Jackson. W. G. Downing presided, and in a brief speech introduced Mr. Dixon, who received an ovation. He prefaced his address by showing that many of the reforms demanded by the populists had been championed a long time by the democrats. The isens is between the old parties, and populists will find more assist ance in the ranks of democracy than with the republicans. Three-fourths of the time since the war the republicans have had en tire control of the government and have legislated in favor of the few against the many and must be held responsible and not allowed to escape the issues. H e took up the mineral land bill and showed how he had labored in the commit Itee on the same and when finally it came before the house under the five minute rule the man who opposed consideration was Julius C. Burrows, a republican, who sno ceeded in stopping its passage. In the com mittee nine democrats favored the bill and the four republicans wanted a compromise measure. He pledged himself the coming session to do everything in his power to have the land taken from the corporation and to accept no compromise. He referred at length to the silver ques tion and read igures to demonstrate that since the demonetization of silver when ever a free coinage bill came before the senate a majority of democrats voted for and t1aasjority of republicans voted against it. , The address made a great impression, Sas it was logical and free from all bitter ness. J. C. Mahoney spoke next and received plenty of applause. Judge Bickford closed the meeting with an able exposition of the i tariff question, which was unanswerable. Cheers were given for Dixon and Collins I and the national ticket. GREErED BY A CROWD. Missoula Turned Out in Force to Hear Miss Ella Knowles.

Miss a Sallie MacLay, people's party candidate for county superintendent of scohools, spoke a few minutes, and was followed by Miss Knowles. She spoke for nearly two hours, and was occasionally applauded. She commenced by asserting that the silver question was the prominent issue of the day, and compared the silver planks of the 1 parties. She confined her remarks almost entirely to this subject, and claimed that the prospects were favorable for the suo cess of the people's party. At the close of her address she appealed to both the ladies and gentlemen for support in the coming election, she being the only woman that d had ever been nominated for suno an a office.

OOt. 19.-The national col ored protective sssociation has issued an address to the colored voters of the United Staters, of which the following is a synopsis: S"Since the mantle of citizenship fell upon Sus the democratio party, by diverse nieans, has sought to nullify every constitutional provision which is intended to secure us in thei rights of oitizenship. Iy their methods a free ballot and a fair count have become d ~ rollow mookery. Life, liberly and prop Srty, so fatr as we are conUer)ned, are taken from us without due piocess of law. It be hoves us, thereifore, to use the ballot wisely n and well. The republican Iarty made us Scitizens and every effort of that party has been to protect us in the exerciseo of ottizenou ship. In tlnt, it now and ever has been the friend of the ovppressed." SThe aslsolciation has been in convention here the past two daue and adjourned to Snight after electing oHlcee. Revolutionary aund Monopolistio. N.w Yot, Oct. 19.l-Cooper Union was crowded tonight with all audience anxious to hear Wayne MaoVeagh, who spoke under the luspices of the demooratio club. The k prinoipal object, MoVeagh said, he had iii - the present campaign was to persuade intel , ligent men that the republican party has so radically changed its standards of public Lsotion and policies of legislation as to merit the same of the "revolationary" party. . Quay, he said, wars eeclated y thleaders of the republican party to manage the campaign in 188H because he was known to be without political scruples. The McKinley bill MacVeagh called an "unrelieved and unmitigated injury to every workingman in the nation, and to every other citizen niess he is in receipt of some portion of its generous bountles." In closing he arraigned the republican party as the monopolistlc party. Address to Colered Voters. INDIArFAPOLA, Oct. 19.--The following is a synopsis of the address to colored voters by the National Negro Tariff Reform league: "The negro is completely shut oat from industrial and manufacturing institn tions where skilled labor is demanded. He is doomed to the most servile and least re munerative work. Experts are the balance wheel of government prosperity." The doonment then proceeds to argue from the statistical reports of experts that the ne gro derives no direct benefit from high protective tariff, and it is, therefore re solved, that "we, as tariff reformers, en dorse the candidacy of Grover Cleveland and Adlai N. Stevenson, as representatives of the canse of tariff reform." The document closes with a resolution of sympathy for the president in his affilia tion. Gov. Campbell in New York. Naw Yocx, Oct. 19.-The assembly room of the wholesale dry goods democratic club was packed at noon by a crowd of business men drawn there by the announcement that E.-Gov, Campbell, of Ohio, was to speak.

A. r Healy, in a long report to the seoratary of It the treasury, dated Ounalaska, Sept. 25, of I. the cruise of the steamer Bear in north Arctic waters, says that the steamer estab lished the station projected by the interior d department at Port Clarence, and started with 177 deer and great promise of success in the work of introducing reindeer into Alaska. The schooner Mary Hume made * an extraordinary catch of thirty-nine a whales during the spring. The establish ment of a refugee station at Point Darrow, with a constant supply of provisions, has encouraged wbaleis togo farther north into more profitable places in pursuit of their trade, with the knowledge that in case of r accident they will not be left to the mercy of an arctic winter without food or shelter.
