Sixty thousand men and women are expected to participai? in the monster demon? stration, and it has boon predicted that both the parade and demonstra? tion in Central Park will be larger and more interesting that the one of last St. Patrick's Pay. Final arrangements for the review? ing of the parade at Fifth Avenue and Twenty-sixth Street were completed last night. Mayor Hylan and other city officials, as well as sympathizers ?nd friends of the Irish cause, will witness the parade from the review? ing stand.

Never before has the Chiesa Di S. Gioach.no, the Roman Catholic Church of St. Joachim, at 22 Roosevelt Street, seen such a nuptial procession, with its 150 automobiles bringing the guests, and never has a bride at its altar worn a wedding gown such as Miss Sadio Faranda wore, with its satin and lace and long train and veil. James Street, Madison Street and Roosevelt Street will have enough gossip for a month, while the bridal couple are whizzing about on their honeymoon trip through the West. New York City has its Mayor Hylan and James Street has its Mayor "Rox" Vanella. It is no empty honor. The neighborhood held a meeting several years ago at St. Angelo Hall and put Vanella in office, knowing full well what it did. He was to take care of them and the James Streoters would take care of him. And walking along James Street yesterday, listening to the comment of those who planned tc attend the wedding and then the sup? per and reception at Arlington Hall in St. Mark's Place, the arrangement has proved mutually satisfactory. Their Second Wedding Ceremony Father Annunzio, of the Chiesa D S. Gioachino, who performed the rell gious ceremony, was giving a last lool about at the church arrangement ii the afternoon, waiting for the wedding party to arrive from Woodside, L. I. tho home of the bride's parents. Th? church bridal ceremony of Rober Vanella and Sadie Faranda was thei second ceremony. Several weeks agi they went through the civil ceremon; at the clerk's office in Long Islam City, but that was only preliminary t the festival yesterday. So long as James Street was to se a wedding, it was to see a real wedding one of which even Fifth Avenue woui be proud. Of this Robert Vanella, hi bride and her parents were determine and, accordingly, 2,000 invitations, coi rect in every detail, were sent out t relatives and friends, among whoi were many well-known political figure!

Invitations were sent to Major L Guardia, President, of the Donrd of Aldermen; to Justice Freachi and oth? ers, for Vanella ?s a power among his people. Weeks before the wedding gifts be? gan to pour in at the undertaking es? tablishment of the bridgegroom, at 09 Madison Street, and at his home, at 29 ?Madison Street. So much silverware arrived that "Rox" found it impossible I to keep track of the givers and smii ! ingly credited all his friends with re? membering hitn. In all, he says, $10, 000 worth of gifts were sent to him and his bride. Magistrate Nolan re? membered him with a present of silver. Of this "Rox" was sure. "Rox" Vanella was born thirty-six years ago at fiR James Street, and he has made his home in the neighborhood ever since, lie came up, not without ! a struggle, from a bootblack's box to the ownership of two undertaking rooms, the presidency of the Ragpick? ers' Union, membership in Tammany I Hall and a captaincy on the staff of j Rig Tom Poley. Friend of the Ragpickers The ragpickers swear by Vanella. His organization of the union and the ! three strikes that he called on behalf I of the members have improved condi I (ions among the workers immeasurably ! and wages have mounted in proportion j to the improvements he has brought I about. Just two months ago the Mayor of i James Street met his bride-to-be. Tie crossed tho river to the marble works of Faranda & Son, at Laurel Hill, L. I., to advise a client in tho choice of a headstone. Mr. Faranda's daughter, Sadie, was standing beside u newly hewn monument. "I looked at her and decided that she would be my monument," the "Mayor" said, telling of the meeting. "Two weeks later we were married at the City Hall. And now, according to the Italian custom, we are having n church wedding." While the wedding guests were still j making merry early this morning "Rox" Vanella took his bride out to a waiting automobile which he had bought foi her and they started out on then honeymoon trip. They Will go by motoi to Niagara Falls and Buffalo, thence b> train to Chicago, St. Paul, Montana i Spokane, Portland, San Francisco, Los | Angeles and then home. On their return in two months th? ! couple will occupy a home on Queens ; Boulevard, just across the Fifty-nintl ' Street bridge, "Mayor" Vanella has bot;;;ht a block front and will creel : dwelling houses on it.

Burgess When all seems 'peaceful, then watch out Lest danger hrrk somewhere about. ?Redhead. Redhead the Woodpecker and Mrs. Redhead had made their home in the Old Orchard this year and were find? ing it very much to their liking. "I don't know," said Mrs. Redhead to Redhead, as they were finishing their home in the dead branch of an apple tree, "why we haven't built here be? fore. There is plenty to eat without tiring ourselves out hunting for it, and it. seems to me about the safest place we have yet found. About the only enemy we will have to watch out for here ?s Black Pussy the Cat. My, how I hate Cats! " Redhead nodded. "I do, too," said he. "But after all they are rather stupid things, and if we watch out sharp enough we should have no trouble in keeping out of Black Pussy's claws. Hawks are the ones I fear most. I don't believe we will have much trouble from them here. It is too near Farmer Brown's house." For a while the handsome red heads and black and white coats ?f Mr. and Mrs. Redhead provoked a lot of gossip on the part of their neigh? bors in the Old Orchard. A few were jealous. That is what they were? jealous. And some of them were not at all nice. But Mr. and Mrs. Red? head paid no attention to them and attended to their own affairs. The house was finished and soon Mrs. Redhead spent most of her time sit? ting on the precious eggs it con? tained. Redhead spent his time huntisg for worms in the apple trees, helping him? self to strawberries in Farmer Brown's garden or catching flies. He was very fond of catching flies and was almost as clever at it as Cresty the Flycatcher. In this respect he was very dur?rent from his relatives. Downy and Hairy, both members of the Woodpecker family. As time went on Redhead became so used to the peaceful life of the Old Orchard ih?t he becamo careless. He almost forgot that danger was possible. One morning very early, be fore anybody was stirring in Farmer \ Brown's house, Redhead flew around I to the other side of the house, the ! side furthest from the Old Orchard. ' There he sat on a post trying to ? make up his mind what he Wanted ; for breakfast. He was so busy trying to make up ': his mind whether he wanted straw- j berries or bugs that morning that he i didn't pay much attention to any- ! thing else. Now it happened that! Sharpshin the Hawk, one of the mem- : bcrs of the Hawk family most feared j "About the only enemy we will have to tvatch out for here is Black Pussy the Cat" by small feathered folk, had started ! out early that morning and took it jinto his head to have a look around | the home of Farmer Brown, for he is ! bold, is Sharpshin. Like all other i members of the Hawk family, he has 'wonderful eyes, and while vet a long ? way off he saw Redhead sittinjr on ? that post. At first all he saw was a j spot of bright color, but he guessed | at once what that spot was and head? ed that way. Now. it is doubtful if Redhead | would have seen Shurpshin at all had i it not been that Scrapper the King j bird over in the Old Orchard was i watching and saw him coming. At ? once he screamed a warning to all his : feathered neighbors. Redhead heard that warning and wondered what could be going on over in the Old Orchard. He looked over in that di I rection and then?well, for just the ; teeniest, weeniest fraction of a second i his heart almost stopped beating With fright. Heading straight for him at ! wonderful. speed was Sharpshin the ; Hawk. Redhead did the only thing for him ! to do?flew with all his might straight into the nearest tree where the branches grew most thickly. He didn't have time to pick his way among them. He just flew blindly, trusting to luck that he would get in wher? Sharpshin could not follow him. As it was, he was just in the very nick of time, for Sharpshin swept, past, brushing the leaves of the tree, and so close that his outstretched claws just touched Redhead's tail! Red? head had escaped. (Copyright, i??:i. by T. V?*. Hurgrsa) The next story: "Redhead Is in Great Trouble."

Tafi Appointment Mosl Popular, Says Daughcrly DUl Not Believe Such General Approval Possible in Ameri? can politics BALTIMORE, July 3. -Attorney Gen? eral Hairy M. Daugherty, who has been in Baltimore for the lust few days, expressed his appreciation last night of tne appointment of former President William H. Taft as Chief Justice of the United States. "Probably no appointment ever made by the Pr?sider.':," Attorney General Daugherty said, "has received the universal commendation that the ap? pointment of former President Taft as Chief Justice has received. Many tele? grams and letters have been received by the President and by the Depart? ment of Justice since the death of Chief Justice White, and at least 90 or 95 per cent of them have been favor? able to the appointment of former President Taft as Chief Justice. "His recognized attainments ns a profound lawyer are appreciated by the leading lawyers everywhere. I have seen or heard no criticism except that which is traceable to other reasons than those reflecting upon hisT ability, integrity and qualification as a great jurist. In fact there was less opposi? tion to former President Taft's ap? pointment than I would imagine there would be to the appointment of any man in the United States to any of the higher offices." -?-.

More than HiO.OOH men and women in bath? ing suits and as many more in the lightest costumes available thronged tho beaches here to-day. No such crowd has ever before been seen at one resort on tho Jersey Coast. The lid was lifted clean off in so far as beach attire was concerned. The sweltering crowd came from every direction in every sort of conveyance, dressed, or rather undressed, for an immediate plunge into the sea. Even street cars were permitted to carry men and women in bathing suits and for several hours they were crowded with bathers en route to the beach. The rush began yesterday and con? tinued until every room in every hotel, private house and boarding house had been taken. Cottagers began doubling up to make more room for tho hun? dreds who had no place to sleep. At every one of the big restaurants hun? dreds stood in line for hours awaiting their turns to dine. The throngs ex? tended to Chelsea and the new Ritz Carlton, opened last week, was full to capacity even before late trains had arrived. Tho rule against rolled down stock? ings was suspended, and, for that mat? ter, thousands of girl bathers dis pen sed with stockings entirely. The police abandoned all efforts to enforce regulations with regard to costuming One piece suits were worn by hundreds of women and there was a great dis? play of fluffy-ruffled costumes de signed mon especially for the parade than for the water. While the supposition existed that Atlantic City had actually gone dry at last, demand for liquid refreshment demonstrated that waiters' hip pockets hold almost anything one might ask for. It wasn't whiskey, the vendors declared, but no matter what it was the demand grew with every sampling. No arrests were made for liquor law violation. Extra lifeguards were stationed all ?dont* tl'.e beach tr> prevent accidents. Railroad official.-; declared that more than 200,000 persons had been carried to the resort by roil within twenty four hours. Many miles of parked auto? mobiles indicated how the balance of the crowd traveled. Mor? than 5,000 machines were parked on side streets leading to the beach last night. Harry Livingstone and Miss Frances Morton, both of Philadelphia, were overcome by pubmersion, as also were Miss Helen Stev/art, of Pittsburg, and H. Dougherty and daughter, of Phila? delphia. All were revived in the medi? cal tent. ! Pastors Rain Invective on Wet Parade (Continuad from paga on?) minority who by their interest are aligned with the tyrannical rule of the liquor traffic insolently propose to parade the streets of the nation's me j tropolis on the nation's birthday, with I the avowed purpose of nullifying the j constitutional amendment and defying tho popular will. This proposal shows j the same fineness of feeling, the same j sense of the fitness of things which ; has characterized the cynical and ! shameless traffic in the past. Such a ; celebi 'ion on the Fourth of July is as incongruous and blasphemingly dese j crating as celebrating Mother's' Day : by entertaining and honoring in her ; home a convicted criminal who had ! insulted, degraded and robbed her, and I who was still blatant, boasting and ; defiant. Likened to Domestic Insurrection "This Fourth of July the supporters ? of the tyrannical liquor traffic which has been repudiated by the new dec? laration of independence, the Eight? eenth Amendment, is to be celebrated by an organized 'domestic insurrection' dubbed a 'personal liberty parade' in ? favor of this tyrannical traffic which 1 has been adjudged guilty of high ! crimes by the jury of the American ' people in the court? of public opinion. - The verdict witn regard to the un ! aiienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness is that it has i blighted life by turning songs into ? sobs, libeled liberty by decking it in I the mocking robes of license, and has : made the pursuit of happiness a mirage ; of misery* and woe. Think of it?the j Fourth of July, our holy national day, '? desecrated by a lav/less demonstration I in favor of a new compast between our i government and this disease breeding. ! body breaking, home wrecking, soul ! damning traffic!" Dr. William J. Hampton, pastor of I Grace Methodist Episcopal Church of ! Port Richmond, Staten Island, al&o ?joined the chorus of indignation in his ; sermon last night. "Staged for the Fourth of July, on Fifth Avenue, is to be a parade in pro I test against a law which has brought ; untold blessing to millions of people I in this great country," said Dr. Hamp? ton. "We are told that from 200,000 to 500,000 people will be in that parade. ! Suppose there are 200,000; that is only I three times as many as those whose lives were crushed out by King Alcohol every year during the reign of th?3 I bloody tyrant?for every year on an I average of (30,000 lives were laid on i his bloody altar. "But why disgrace our national holi? day by such a parade? If these folk, representing such a meaner minority , of our people, wanted to parade, why i could they not have hit upon some ' other day, than that associated with the most sublime, patriotic associations? "Can we, by any possible stretch of the imagination, picture Abraham Lin? coln serving as grand marshal of such a parade?" Dr. Hampton criticized metropolitan I newspaper editors for the prominence I they pave to the demonstration and I he said they should be given promi? nent positions in the ranks to-day. One Minister Upholds Marchers The Rev. William H. Freeman, a Presbyterian minister of Carlisle, N. Y., who offered to aid the State Legis? lature in a proposed investigation of I the Anti-Saloon League in the winter of 1920, has come out strongly in fa? vor of the marchers and sent them the ?following "open" word: "To tho Anti-Prohibition Paraders ? j Yours is a splendid privilege, the re I kindling of the basic spirit of the na I tion. You sound abroad a call to the I resumption of that high moral-minded i ness and fine patriotic determination j that set this great republic a-making. "The v/rongs that you are resisting i are the heiviest wrongs that have ever I fallen upon the nation. They are the more menacing because they operate under the guise of great moral forces and name themselves great moral issues. The monstrous species of moralism rampant in the nation arc as ungodly as they are un-American. Un? less they are destroyed they will tear the nation asunder and wreck its re ! ligion. The illegitimacy of the Eight : eenth Amendment has brought the en | tire Constitution into ill repute. Legis? lative enactments and judicial decisions i cannot make American that which is i un-American. The restfulness and j content of a people, its right to be free- -these things alone determine its Constitution. "The great mass of the people throughout the country, the level? headed and effective mass of the peo? ple, awaits your demonstration with keen interest." In Jersey City, where there will also j be an anti-prohibition parade to-day, : the Rev. Gottlieb Andreas, a Lutheran ? minister, not only favors the parade, j but is a member of the Hudson County i committee in charge and urges the members of his congregation to be in | line. The Rt. Rev. Mgr. Patrick E. i Smyth and the Rev. Emil Strainese, | | Catholic priests, are also members of ? the parade committee for Hudson I County. Brooklyn Promises 50,000 Rrooklyn promises to send more than j 50,000 across the bridges to-day to swell the columns in Fifth Avenue. County Court Judge Reuben L.

Almost every one who went to the resort wanted to go n bathing, apparently, but there were ac ccinmodationn at the bathhouses for only about 100,000, and after standing in line for hours the others gave it up and tried some other form of amuse? ment. Long before dawn a line began to form in front of the Municipal Baths, West Fifth Street and Surf Avenue, and at 8 o'clock, when the doors were opened, more than 4,000 persons were waiting. One woman, who insisted on pushing her way to the front of the line and who told a patrolman who ad? monished her that he ought to be catch? ing burglars, was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct. That was the only offense that the police discovered among all the crowd of nearly half a million throughout the day. They found an extraordinary number of sticky-faced, lusty-lunged lost children, however, and more than 100 of them, whose parents were not tc be found anywhere in their vicinity were taken to Coney Island Police Sta? tion. And They All Cry at Once There they were placed in the care of Policewoman Rose S. Taylor. Mrs Taylor spent twenty-two months over I seas as a nurse, and thought at time.? that it was far from being an enjoy ! able experience, but there was many ? time yesterday when eighty-seven oi i eighty-eight of her charges burst int< ' disconsolate bellows that she wishei I she was back in France working nine ?teen hours a day on short rations.

White, Democratic national chairraea. . to-day issued a "July 4 Proclamation to Democrats,'' congratulating gEj ] complimenting his party members ot j what he said had been their "Con structive, not obstructive attitude" t? ward the Republican Administration n far, but assuring them that "the p?o plo are losing confidence in the abilir, of the present national Administrativ to provide adequate remedies" for dis turbed economic and political cords tions. "This, our nation's birthday, oa most patriotic holiday," Mr. Whits' ! statement read, "seems an appropri?t 1 time for me to make a statement coi I cerning national conditions and tt | attitude of our party whose found? I were the most conspicuous of the a j tion's founders. SecB Much Apprehension "Throughout the nation there : much present uneasiness and much a; i prehension for the futur?. The reasoi ? are political, which is my reason f< ; making this statement. "More than two years a?o a wor ! peace was made at Versailles, but f ! partisan political reasons this natii i is not yet at peace with the enen ? nations of the war, which admitted ! cannot be made by a Concession ! resolution. Business has reached sw ; depression that bitter complaints a ; heard from the business world. Ft eign trade has declined almost to t I vanishing point. Agriculture is prt trate. Taxation and governmental < penditures are at the maximum in o ' history. The tremendous percenta 1 of idleness in the ranks of labor aimost unprecedented. "For more than two years the I ! publican party has been in charge the legislative branch of the govei t. For four months it has been actual charge of all departments : the government, but it has not remed? nor alleviated these conditions, and. far, has failed of any material accc ; plishment. The people are losing ci : fidence in the ability of the presi ? national Administration to provi ad?quat? remedies for the conditfi ! described. "During the period of the Repul i can party's return to power the Der ; cratic party's attitude towards its ' ponents has been constructive, not : structive; helpful, not hurtful, and j has given the party in power a i I chance. "I take this patriotic occasion congratulate and compliment the Bei ; cratic party upon its attitude tow I the Republican Administration, on forbearance towards the Execul j and its efforts of constructive help! ness in legislation, placing the inl c.-ts of the country above partisan i terest, again pro\ :..; its moral i 1 political integrity, its true patriot and its devotion to the interests of n&tion and its people." re closed all day today?independence Day Good Morning ?Mr. Fourth of July We are indeed glad to have you come back to spend the day with us. There is no place on this round globe where you are so welcome as in this dear old city. You first made your mark in the Old State House upon Independence Square. The same old Liberty Bell sits in her place near the South door, with the words of the Book of Books inscribed thereon. "Proclaim liberty throughout all the land wnto all the inhabitants thereof." fliese words were first spoken from Hie steps of the South door to an assem? bled multitude on the first of the Fourth of Julys, 3776, and they went ringing 'round the world. Today they are ringing louder and farther than ever. (Sisncd) ft f/km$ Monday, July 4, 1921, This is the little piece copied from the newspapers of Philadelphia, our Mother City.
