Averaged 430000 Vlltor n Day
Yesterday wo gave tho thlnl act of te
nd contcnnlnl drama Tho bands whoso
nuslc shook tho air oarly In tho morning wore
tho orchestra tho hundreds of thousands of
human beings crowding tho streets woro the
audience the miles and miles of paraders
forming far up town woro tho player tho
metropolis was the theatre
Tho story of tho last act of tho beautiful and
Inspiring play was a talo of our countrys
strides In Industry and art and the climax
represented the mighty numbers and power of
the people The people who wore the players
bad seen their navy and their army move
across the stare and now they donned their
costumes and became themselves the Illustra
tors of the finish of the plot Looking back
over the whole joyous and perfectly successful
spectacle It Is seen that tho first act by the
navy and tho second by the soldiers wore only
grand from tho standpoint of a peaceful na
tion They would not havo amounted to much
In one of what we call the effete monarchies
But the third act ot the play the festival of the
pooDlo was something no other nation could
have Illustrated
Tho lofty purpose which monuments servo
la fixing heroism power or greatness in the
Ibo mind was better answered by this ex
traordinary howjif jestarday It Bjjrowrth
enad A well as glorified Americanism I Bet
men who never did so before to coasting of
their country to extolling It to thinking of It
with new pride born of a palpable substantial
comprehension of Its magnitude progress
and aspirations
This va tho keynote of what was heard
everywhere throughout the city I never was
8 proud of belncan American was exclaimed
by thousands who did not know that any ex
cept themselves had framed the thought
There were two other very notable features of
the day of which men will speak as long as they
live the parts taken by tho GormanAmericans
and by our schoolboys
When the curtains of tho day rolled away to
display the groat stage all brilliant with tho
funllcht of a prime spring morning the scene
of the day before had not been chanced All
the settings wore tho same Tho great private
boxes put up along the parks and before the
rich folks houses woro onoe again packed
with waiting spectators and the upper tiers of
wuido and roofs were ngnln sought by others
The folks who had no seats but had to stand
alone tho route now shortened to four miles
were not so numerous n on Tuesday The
people were Urodphyslcally tired and tired of
light seeing Not above 700000 took
seelal persons the
Plwes of tho full million of thoday before Lots
yesterdays spectators woro newcomers and
they could bo as plainly distinguished a I
they were labelled All the now arrivals looked
whits and pallid while those who hud been
taking In the whole show wore sunburned
This was BO to such a degree that the hundtods
or thousands of rod noses along the streets and
on the stands suggested a population of hard
drinkers As the slang of the day puts It the
city seemed to have had a beautiful jag on
liurnlne rod noses and peeling noses and
noses varnished with now coats of tan wore
the portion of the women as well as the moD
AS for the actual drinking by the centennial
latitude It did not become excessive until
leiterday There Then It was wonderful to behold
never wore so many reeling rocky
lucktongued bleareyed folks In New York
since the days when the Dutch were extending
the sUburbs by swapping rum for real estate
with the Indians Tho Bowery was a sight to
eee yesterday afternoon on accoupt of the un

Tho dollarnndalmlf soap box Is a tex for

Ono day Is the same as another to them and

cheating every here and there Far be It from
any one to justify thlsbut there Is I view of it
that softens ones flrst sensations Now York

The reporter declined to deliver and the officer

thing the reporters havo misted and tho coun

Just nt tho neighborhood of the Madison
square stand the crowd seemed fully as great n
It had been at the military parade A troubled
tremulous sea of hats reached along Fifth
nvonuo and Into Broadway 1 sea bordered
with sloping bluffs of other hats whero tho
enormous wooden reviewing stands wore hid
den by the notables and the luck ticket hold
ers Tho roofs around there woro fringed with
men and women and all the windows hold
slgbtBoors Nothing more extraordinary
could be said of any crowd or occa
sion than that It was big enough to
make Dolmontcos waiters forgot that high
grade of stolid and frappf dignity which has
for years been tho envy and the study of the
dandles who Imagine that an air of blank
mental torpor Is tho next bent thing to being
born with a coronet But yesterday Dolmonl
COB waiters woro just plain simple Dutch
men and Frenchmen and Gwlss with tho
samo ploblan Interest In life that the
crowds on tho sidewalk exhibited These
once haughty servants had beon con
quered by tho bigness of tho parade
Thoy clustered at tho windows with their
backs to the customers and they pushed and
strained to see all that wont by After all the
only genuine hauteur and Insouciance In town
is that of the waiters In the eating houses at
Washington Market Nothing disturbs that
I was just about 10 oclock In the morning
when the President arrived with VicePresi
dent Morton and others at tho grand stand at
Madison square Ho was dressed n n each
previous day but his appearance oxatod both
comment and compassion ho seemed so tired
and unnaturally palo Ho was loudly and
emphatically cheered When Drover Cleveland
came with J Hampdon Bobb In a carriage
loud and general cheering followed the car
riage as It rolled between tho lines of specta
tors When ho stopped at the grand stand the I
cheering outran him and spent itself down the
lines beyond Mr Cleveland lifted his hat at
each restrengthonlng of tho applause Presi
dent Harrison stood above him bowing to him
and smiling When all the notables were on
tho stand they Included Mayor Grant 000
Sherman Senator John Sherman Secretaries
Windom Rusk Noble Wanamakor and Miller
n Hayes Gen J W Busted Elliott F Shop
nrfl and Gen Abram Dally AU were distin
guished with varying degrees of popular
urrlnl derrees ap
proval especially old don Dally
When Mayor Grant came to the stand It was
In his new relation as Chairman of a commit
tee formed of the heads of the different clvlo
bodies In the parade all wearing yellow sashes
except tho Mayor They met on Broadway
and while tho others stood facing the stand
the Mayor advanced bearing a silver cylinder
In his band and presented I to President Har
rison with a few formal remarks
Afterward while the procession was under
way all eyes were turned from it to a trio of
men crossing Broadway Two woro support
ing the third who was so old and so decrepit
that ho was carried rather than supported
Ho was the ancient Dally of whom Now York
ers have read on every such occasion as this
slnco any one can remember Beaching the
front of the reviewing stand ho handed 1 let
ter up to President Harrison I was alto
gether pathetic tlie letter tho scone and
tho natural thoughts both gave rise to The
letter rehearsed how how ho and tho other sur
viving veterans of the war of 1612 had asked
for grand stand tickets had got four seats
on somo other stand had torn them up
and then had asked permission to rldo in the 1
procession In I carriage and had beon refused I
What Gen Harrison said when he read the let
ter nobody has reported but he seemed to say
Como right up and tnko my place you cant
get an other That was tho translation of
Ills manner And sure enough old Gen Dully
did go up and sit by the President amid cheer
ing that honored any who indulged In I Long
afterward there was more cheering I was
whoa the groat concourse of people saw the
President talking to tbo old General
niiRiun Ion oust SCHOOL DOTS I
Throe parts of the Industrial parade were
very notable Indeed there was nothing to
compare with them In the opinion of many
spectators during tho three days of great spec
mobs These three features wore the march
ing of tho boys of our public schools tho be
wildering mid artistic flouts contributed by
the ieranAmerlcans and the hoai ty whole
soWed enthusiasm those citizens thcmsolos I
Perhaps we ought to include Gen Daniel But
terlleld Marshal of tho days parade He is
certainly le enID of creat pialso for his
share In the blr I sPree
Loading the procession was n short stout
young man outlined with a plenitude of ample
curves Ho was good looking bright eyed nnd
alert The countrymen wondered who ho wan
Ho was TiE HUNS City Hall roportor with a
head full of political lore
Tho first body of noto was the dmllih bat
talion of students of Columbia College In
bearing In dices In tho enormous size of the
canes they carried nnd tho height of the col
lars they wore no other men In either
parade approached thom They woro white
gaiters iiiul reached from curb to curb Very
different were the country boys studying medi
cine In the College Physicians and Burgeons
who camo net Thoy were of good mettle
none the osS
But hark I Hoar tho cheering It sounds at
flrst liku tho nolso on a distant pen beach In a
storm I grows louder I IK approaching
rupldly reM of thousands of throats mo
carrying loud applause rapidly along Flfthlav
enua toward the President Every ono Is
curious to knowwhat provokes such excessive
ardent applause In another two or thtoe
minutes the mystery ended The prettiest
sight Now York ever saw was about to burst
upon the Presidents vision The boys of the
public schools were approaching 3200
strong In lines as close as those of tho
West Pointer the day before with eighteen
twenty twentytwo or twontyflvo In each
Illo At their head was President J Edward
Hlmmons of tIm Board of Education xlresl
dent of the Ktocl Exchange President of the
Fouith National Bunk handsome wearing a
soldierly mounaelio nnd In the
Inou very proudest
ego of man the middle age With him were
Principal John D Iloblnson of the West Fifty
second street school and Superintendent Jas
per A 7000 person were pasting the Presi
dent In an hour tho boys remained tho sensa
tion for thirty minutes
On and on they came chins up breasts for
ward little foot swinging In unison eyes
as bright n jot beads proud happy
light heeled and bravo hearted On
and on and on thoy marched looking neither
to tho right nor Ie It but with smiles hero
and there In tho ranks whore the plaudits
struok sensitive soulsa splendid noblo troop
of eight great battalions of cosmopolitan Now
York boystho Judges merchants soldiers
beaux and leaders of the city yet to como
that Andrew I Qroon thinks will be a greater
London How royally thoy woro choorodt How
royally they won every noto of tho mighty roar
that wont up alongside of them from tho lies
orvolr to Canal street
In ago tho boys ranged from 10 to 10 years
All wore neatly dressed and marched under
Derby hats Their lines were hold a straight
as the rows of desks In their school houses
In ever way theirs was a superb exhibition of
the rigid discipline of our school system
Trained like little soldiers everyday within tho
schoolhouso walls they looked like little sol
diers In tho parade Ever nationality that con
tributes Its quota to our population was rep
resented In their ranks Tho women were In
ecstaclos over them Tho President wreathed
his face In smiles as he looked at them Ho
was so delighted with the unexpected and
beautiful display that ho caused a noto to
bo written and sent to tho reporters In which
he said that ho considered this exhibition su
perior to any made by tho troops yesterday
VicePresident Morton stood beaming by his
sldo and Oeo Sherman was so pleased that
during tho thirty minutes tho boys took In
passing he kept nodding and smiling and com
mending them to the President The Grand
Army men on the platform said that tho boys
marched bettor than the veterans and that
they woro more thrilled with tho sight of those
fins little follows than anything they saw
yesterday Somo ono on tho reviewing plat
form was so moved by tho scone that he called
out What becomes of the Anarchists now
and lato last night all over the city the beauty
and moral splendor of this scene was the main
and proudest topic of household conversation
The boys did ono very effective thing that no
body olso thought to do As each line ap
proached tho reviewing stand It turned and
came obliquely into tho presence of the Presi
While everybody else was cheering while the
delight on all the hundreds of thousands of
faces mado thom radiant whIle the air was
electrified with the transports of tho general
pleasure tho little boys with the instlnctivo
sell command of Now Yorkers kept ihelr faces
Immobile Never veterans of France wore bet
tor schooled
Tho captains saluted with I sebro movement
of their canes They had to do so with their
left hand This was a lefthanded parade
Tho consequence of moving the great Indus
trial procession era reversed lino of march
laid out for tbo military men of tho day Woro
was that over marching man brought his loft
side toward the President aud had to salute
with his left hand Tho rear ranks of the Tam
many mon attracted attention by a disinclina
tion to salute the President They wore brought
to their politeness by commands from the
crowd and tardily they lifted their hats Then
camo the Hibernians wearing hat that told
the tub Ions of distant epochs as do the cen
tennial curiosities In the Metropolitan Museum
strange weird wonderful hats such as make
Bt Patricks Day something to talk about
Last of all came tho squadrons and beautiful
floats of tho Germans I was Indeed a groat
day for our Teutonic fellow citizens day in
which they endeared thomsohen to every Now
Yorkor By their numbers by their fine ap
poaranco by 1 their intense enthusiasm and
solfsacriace they exhibited their loyalty to
the spirit of this holiday which has boon no
more than equalled by our natlvoboru
citizens High credit then to Steinway
to Kopplor to Emi Bcuaofer and Col
Eoifort and to oerY marching man and
artist of them all Elsewhere their scores
of mining tableaux are described I Is
enough to say hero thut never has Now
York seen any sight of tho kind to be com
pared with this In truth this city has seldom
given expression to jubilation by moons of
these street tableaux The most notable thing
of tho kind wo ovor did was in tho attempt to
transplant Box and the carnival to this city
several years agoa farcical failure Tho long
lines of rapidly moving platforms crowded
with Ihlnc figures with workmen nt their
labor with lovely women In tho attire of cod
dosses made a brilliant opulent and novorto
beforeotten show It was moved along too
fast It was bewildering
But to como to tho end throo days Is too
much of such festivities The people were
tired tho President was trod the marching
men were tired our eyes our minds our
nerves wore trod hero Is proof of this In I
thousand matters somo of which have been
referred to but tho strongest proof came when
because tho President bad to hurry awn to
catch a train after about J5000 men had passed
him the rest broLo ranks and vanished llko
fog banks boforo a hot sun too troll to finish
what little remained of the gigantic celebration
