A Fine Procession and a Brilliant Illu mination. Pennsylvania Avenue Thronged with People?A Beautiful and Stirrlnff Scene?The Display of Fireworks?!VIr. Shepherd Responds to a Popular Ova tion with a Speech. Washington poured all of Its population out upon Pennsylvania avenue last evening to give ex-Gov. Alex. K. Shepherd a welcome back to his old home such as has never been accorded here to any private citizen. The demonstration was most satisfactory In every respect to the citizens In charge of the arrangements, and must have been most gratifying to the distinguished gentle man in whose honor It was arranged. The night was a lovely one, the moon rising early to aid In the general Illumination, and the temperature be ing so mild as to Invite one out of doors. Thou sands of people?men, women, and children? swarmed Into the brilliantly Illuminated Avenue, of course the greatest crush was In the vicin ity of 15th street, where ex-Gov. Shepherd stood on the reviewing stand. The head of the procession that formed at New jersey and Massa chusetts avenues reached the reviewing stand a little alter 9 o'clock, and occupied about one hour in passing. While It was passing fire-work3 were playing from many points, and helped to make one of the most effective and Impressive scenes ever wit nessed on t he Avenue. Ex-Gov. Shepherd stood on the reviewing stand, with head uncov ered, and resj>onded heartily to the passing salutes of the marching men. When the procession had passed, the space In front of the stand, as far as the eye could see, was filled with a multitude of people, who cheered and cheered for ex-Gov. Shep henL Mr. Shepherd was obliged to respond to this popular demonstration with a speech. Then, the proctsi-lon h iving disbanded, the demonstration was ever for the evening; but it was nearly mid night before the crowds had left the Avenue. The Procession. Soon after dark the open spaces about the inter section of Massachusetts and New Jersey avenues gave evidence of the coming demonstration. Bodies of men began assembling. Wagons were on the ground distributing torches, and soon the scene was Illuminated here and there by torches anil transparencies, which Impatient men had lighted. While this added brilliancy to the scene about the rendezvous, many of the torches, lighted so lone In advance, burned themselves out before their bearers had traversed the line of march. Besides the military and other organizations tak ing purt in th~ procession, thousands of spectators crowded about the place of rendezvous. The set ne was an Interesting one. over the heads of the crowd one could see mounted marshals with their white sashes charging about. In one direc tion the xUre oX a dozen tufches would reveal the glistening muskets or a military company stand ing at rest. Occasionally some one would llghc a quantity of red Are, which would Illuminate the whole scene. Then aa the light died away, the succeeding darkness seemed Intense, and there was nothing to be seen but a multitude of dark looking objects moving about. The marshals had the arrangements well in hand, and the line was formed w ithout contusion. THE BTAET. The signal to start was given about quarter past 8 o'clock, the music struck up and the procession was soon moving over the route pre scribed. A platoon of twenty mounted police, under Lieut. Kedway, went forward to clear the way. Some distance ahead of the main proces sion rode the wheelmen, and behind them came the fireworks wagon, an Adams' express truck, drawn by fifty uniformed employes or the Adams' Express Company, marshaled by Superintendent .1. P. D. Phelps. Then came the main line. At the head rode the grand marshal, Wm. Dickson, who had as his aids ling. Gen. Albert ordway, Lieut, col. John Blgelow, Jr.; Major Henry L. c ran ford, Major Jos. K. McCainmon, Major Jas. M. pi'llanl. Major Jos. Stanton, Capt. Cecil Clay, Capt. K. B. Townsend, John P. Ancona, Frank K. W ird. John D. A. Hielps, J. M. Wheatley, J. s. Wormley, J. A. Windsor, Henry B. Polklnhorn, Thos. L. Cropley, Jos. W. Walsh, G. R. Tompkins, Bent. B. Whitney, \V. E. Dubant, Austin Herr, llobert M. Larner, Major J. V. W. Vandenberg, P. M. Draney, Edmund C. Blunt, Gen. T. T. <l rltvnden, Col. Geo. A. Armes, Thos. W. Buckey, l?r Geo. K. Harrison, Jas. H. Marr, W. Pierce Bell, John P. Waggaman. W. 11. Smith, E. W. Anderson, Prank McCleary, capt. Prank Palmer, J. J. Wll marth, Capt. Wm. J. Gary, and Philip H. Christ man. The marshal and his aids were all well mouited. They wore dark clothing, with high silk hats, white silk sashes and tan-colored gloves. Grand M j-rsual Dickson carried a tasseled baton. THB FIRST DIVISION. This division was of unusual Interest, as It com prise the District mllltla, which turned out last night for the first time since Its organization. The battalions were not ordered out, but turned out voluntarily to take part In the popular demonstra tion to ex-Gov. shepherd. The apuearance of the different bodies attracted much notice. The Washington Light Iniantry corps, the National HI lies, and other favorite organizations were freely applauded as they marched up the avenue. The Hot battalion of the first division was led by the Marine Band and drum corps, of sixty-two pieces, unde. the leadership of Prof. Sr>usa. Aft -r them came coi. Wm. O.

E. crelL 1st Lieut. Fred Thomson, marching bleadlly along with the precise step of veterans, and followed by the Custer Guard, twenty-two men, commanded by 1st Lieut. M. G. Brown. The Washington Continentals, Captain W. W. Mills, and 1st IJeut. C. Ludwlg, were the next In line, at the head of the third battalion. They pre sented an almost exact counterpart of the Pha lanx. their uniforms being In the Continental style, with cocked hat, 4c. Then came stalwart Captain W. H. Murphy, with 1st Lieut.

Following them were the Merchant Klfies, forty men, ofllcered by Captain J. J. Costlnett and 1st Lieut. J. Kelly. Although this was their first parade tnelr marching step was even and kept perfect time to the music of the band in front. in the iourth battalion the Coreoran Cadets took the lead witu Wiy members, under the command of Capt.

At the bead of the civic column rode the chief marshal of that division, Mr. Charles 8. Moore, | who had as his special aids Dr. II. E. Leach, Andrew W. Kelley, Washington Nallor, Dr. Har rison Crook, E. G. Wheeler, Harrison Dlngman, J. II. Smith, Campbell carrlngton, Johh H. Uolllsier, George j. Seufferle, Prof. Harry King, George 8. Atwater. Harry Clarke, Julius Emmner, Jr., Frank K. Ward, H. C. Bowers, Relnold Sprlngsguth. The first battalion, Chief Engineer Joseph Parrls, marshal, was headed by the Third United states Artillery Band. It comprised the District Fire Department, beaded by Fire Marshal Drew, represented by engine companies No. 1. foreman, C. c. Boss; No. 4, foreman, W. T. sorrefl, and No. 6, foreman, Frank Lewis, each with engine and hose carriage with ten men each. The men were neatly attired In full-dress uniforms with bright buttons. Along the line the handsome appear ance of the department elicited many compli ments. The second battalion, K. G. Wheeler, marshal, headed by Immlch*s Citizens' Band, comprised a corps of mounted messengers of the Baltimore and Ohio Telegraph Company, commanded by Thomas Butler, and citizens bearing torches, of whom over two hundred were in line. The third battalion,marshaled by Julius Emncr, Jr., was composed of civilians bearing torches. There were about 250 In Hue from the old tenth, twelfth and fourteenth districts. This number was swelled to about 500 by men from ail parts of the city who took torches and fell In. The fourth and last battalion was composed of workln>rmen, principally those marshaled by Mr. Albert oleuson. This battalion attracted much notice on account of the transparencies carried In the line. The men marching were all laboring < men and bore evidences of tlieir calling. Many had their over-alls on and their trousers stuck Into their muddy boots, looking as though they had Juat thrown down their pick or shovel to take up a torch and march In honor of ex-Governor Shep herd. There were about 500 men in the line, all carrying torches. At the head of this army of i laborers rode Mr. Gleason, who had as his aids I his general superintendent. Mr. slmpson, and his foremen, Messrs. Sullivan, Herlehey, Turner, Nich olson, McNamara, Fletcher. Dawson, HUL and lllckey. The line contained carts, contractors, wagons, road scrapers, and other Implements used on woras of street or road Improvements. The carts and wagons, some of which were drawn by mules or horses, four abreast, were loaded with picks and shovels, plows, tool boxes, and every thing needed to equip a gang of laborers. The transparencies all bore legends, appropriate to the occasion. Following were the inscriptions; "Welcome, Gov. Shepherd, the Bia who made Washington. 18TC va. 1887> "Veterans of 1872. Governor, we tor alt your orders." "We can build a town In ninety days." "Men like Shepherd make the plans; we do tlie work." "Belalr Heights. Construction force; 500 strong. 187:.' vs. 1887." "A hearty welcome from your old workmen." "Governor, Is there anything we can do for you?" "Shepherd, the true friend of Washington." "Your place will never be filled.'? A huge transparency, borne on a wagon, had on the sides the following Inscription: "Washington suggested; Congress sanctioned; Shepherd made It." And In the rear: "Population 1871, 80,000; 1887, 250,000." The transparency, however, that attracted most notice was one borne aloft by a solitary man who sat on top of a pile of plows and construction tools on a wagon. The man was a swarthy Italian, and the inscription on his transparency was, "I am the only Italian In Albert Gleason's employ." This lonely Italian was Introduced In the proces sion to refute a published statement that Mr. Gleason would turn out 000 Italian laborers. Th? Bicycle Parade. Wheelmen who were to take part In the bicycle parade were directed to report at the Intersection of Maryland avenue and lswtreet at 6:30 o'clock. By that hour wheelmen began to arrive from all directions, and Marshal At water and his aides were busy from that time until 8 o'clock In arrang lng the men in their positions, and In supplying them with lanterns and wire frames to hang them on. As fast as they arrived the wheelmen stacked their machines along the curbstone, the upright wheels coming first In order, then the Stars, safe ties, boys', and tricycles, and tandems. Push carts passed down the line containing the wire frames and the Chinese lanterns ana candles. The wire was quickly twisted around the handle bars and the lanterns hung In place. New arrivals, however, constantly required the attention of those lu charge, but by 8 o'clock everything was In readiness for the parade. Each kind of machine composed a section, commanded by an aide. Mar shal Atwater at the appointed hour gave tna order and the men walked their machines until the line rested on Pennsylvania avenue. This was done In order that the wheelmen might be in a position to (all In ahead of the military procession as soon as they should be seen coming down Capitol H11L At the word of command the wheelmen mounted their machines, and, as slowly as possible, proceeded down the avenue. PoUoe men kept the crowd back as well as possible. The riders soon drew away from the main procssslon, and passed the grand stand at least a half hour In advance of it. They presented a very attractive sight, and were liberally applauded. There were over two hundred wheels in line. After the bicycles came the tricycles, of which many were in line. On one tandem tricycle rode a lady who was accompanied by a gentleman. Her graceful riding formed one of the features of the parade. After passing the grand stand the wheelmen dismounted ana took positions along each side of 15th street, near G street. The procession which followed passed between the rows of lantern lighted wheels. Ob Pennsylvania Avenue* The column moved by way of New Jersey ave i nue, B street north, and 1st street west Into Penn sylvania avenue at the Peace Monument, as the head of the procession entered Pennsylvania ave nue the scene was brilliant beyond description. The Illumination, which reached its height when the procession appeared, Oiled the broad avenue with a sea of light. The sidewalks and the vast area of asphalt from the Capitol to the Treasury swarmed with people. There was an outpouring < of people, such as has seldom been equaled even I In Washington, accustomed as the city 1 Is to street displays on a large scale. The illumination continued during all the time the procession was passing along the Avenue. Bed and blue fire burned at the curbs lighted up the scenes, bringing out m bold relief the .outlines of the buildings along the street. The illumination ; was carried to the upper air by flights of rockets, and bombs that exploding at a great height broke Into myriads of beautiful lights of many colors. At the head of the line the n reworks-wagon was literally a fountain of fire. Homan candles bound In sheaves were constantly discharged and 9ent Into the air, a stream ot light, variegated In hue. THE FIREWORKS STATIONS. There were three stations where, under the di rection of experts, fireworks were discharged. These were at the Botanical Gardens, the Center Market reservation, and the grounds south of the Treasury. The supply of flreworks were abundant and the rockets and bombs used of the mast ef fective character. Bouquets of large rockets were discharged, seeming to nil half the sky with great streamers of Ore. Many beautiful aerial effects were produced by bombs and rockets, which, ex ploding in the air, sent off beautiful colored lights that drifted slowly away or sent serpentine streamers coursing across the sky. At the Treasury, In addition to the general ferial dis play. a large set piece, representing a fine prollie likeness of ex-Gov. shepherd, was set off, and over the gates to the Treasury grounds the word "Wel come"' blazed In letters of fire. THE DOME OF THE CAPITOL. As an effective feature of the Illumination large calcium lights with reflectors were arranged on the Capitol building so as to throw their floods of light upon the dome of the Capitol. So the beau tiful vista from the Treasury was closed by tne wliltedome of the Capitol, which, under the strong ll?ht, loomed up out of the surrounding darkness with impressive effect. Besides the general Illumination provided by the roinrnlttee, many private citizens contributed toward the display by discharging flreworks and illuminating and DECORATING THEIR BUILDINGS. Near the reviewing stand Wlllard's Hotel and the G. A. R. Hall opposite were noticeable for their tasteful decoration. Other buildings on the ave nue that attracted attention by their decoration or illumination were those of Milburn, the drug gist, Auerbach & Bra, Browning & Middle ton, Geo.W. Driver, Saks & Co., the Metropolitan Hotel, Mrs. Lum, P. Moore, Win. H. Hoeke, Hume, Cleary & Co., B. Robinson & Co., shuster & Bro., John L. Vogt, E. B. Barnum & Co., Ed. Droop, J. W. Bote ler, Breunlnger, Wm. Breunlnger, Walter B. Wil liams, S. Sickle, The Evening Star office, B. H. stinemetz, Smith Bros., the Dumbarton Hotel, and the Adams Express Company. The great throng on the avenue pressed close upon the lines of the procession, but every one was good natured, and the police had no difficulty in preserving order. CLEARING THE WAT. When the procession turned into the Avenue at the foot of the Capitol there was a mass of human ity extending from curb to curb, and the sixth precinct police, under Sergt. Brosnan, had to work hard to open a way for the line. This they Anally succeeded In doing, and from this beginning the mounted officers had a start in keeping the way open. The crowd on the south side was allowed to come out upon the street as far as the car tracks. The oil In a number of torches took tire, causing the bearers to drop them, and they were kicked in some Instances Into the crowd, but fortunately no one was injured. Qne torch-bearer stuck to his torch till It bursteil with a loud report. The driver of a mall wagon drov^across the line at 6th street and caused considerable oonfuslon In the line. On tbe Reviewing Stand* The main point of view was from the reviewing stand, erected on the pavement, just facing the Capitol, at 15th street and Pennsylvania avenue. Here Gov. Alexander R. Shepherd sat, surrounded by many of the prominent business men ot the District. He was escorted from his home at Bleak House by Messrs. Wm. p. Mattlngly, Myron M. Parker, and Crosby s. Noyes. tbe committee se lected ror that purpose. They arrived at Wlllard's Hotel shortly before 8 o'clock. From the hotel the governor and escort went to the reviewing stand, upon which a large number of people were already assembled. TBS ARRIVAL at THE STAND. They drove up to the stand in a landau drawn by four spirited horses, and the governor was wel comed by the booming ot cannon and a burst of fireworks. Red lights, rockets and fountains ot fire were set off as tbe landau drew up to the stand. The crowd on the streets gave vent to a prolonged cheer or welcome, which was taken up and re-echoed as tar down the street as It could be heard. The tront horses, frightened by the glare of Are and the cheers, had to be led away by the bits. The governor passed quickly through the crowd and upon the stand. Everv man stood in his place ana waived his hat and cheered, and all remained standing and uncovered until the overnor was conducted to the seat or honor on a ttle platform in the front of the stand. As manv as could reach him held out their hands to give him welcome. No man could have been received with more enthusiasm. There was some time to wait before the procession came up to the stand. The scene was lighted in many colors by the con stant discharge of fireworks, and It was calculate to arouse deep feeling In the breast of the honored guest of the occasion. TBE SCENE FROM THE STAND. Stretched out before, red with light, was the most beautirul avenue in the world?not a step ping-stone, a mud-hole, or a marsh was revealed to slulit; not a sink-hole or a surface gutter. A broad avenue, graded and curbed and paved, as smooth as a floor, stretched its way out to the Capitol to contrast ltsdf with the time before there was a Gov. Shepherd. Thousands upon thou sands of people?mei women, amlchlldren; white and black, fashionable and commonplace?wen crowded on the pavements on either side and strained the ropes that were stretched along the curb to keep clear the street for the parade. As far as the eye could reach was a mass of people crowded so close that they seemed not to be able to move. Every houae along the Avenue was overflowing at the windows, and piled up with people on tbe roofs, and from the streets and out of tbe windows and off the roofs shot up streams ot fireworks, and red and blue and green Ores lighted the scene. The police succeeded very well in keeping the middle of the Avenue clear, and there appeared to be an open ing right through the crowd to the Capitol, which was lighted and stood out boldly in the distance. The crowd gathered asdose up around the stand as the police would permit, and gave demonstra tions of their welcome. Rockets, Roman candles, and other fireworks were constantly discharged at the south front of the Treasury, back ot the reviewing stand, and there was a constant shower ot many-colored fires. TUB PROCESSION. It was at least half an hour before the head of the procession appeared, and the governor re ceived an ovation tbe while. The bicycle brigade was the first to appear; the blaze of light could be seen as far away as 7th street, and soon the long line of colored Chinese lanterns, rapidly approaching the stand. As the head of tbe column appeared fireworks were dis charged from both sides of the street, and the procession marched through an arch of fire that appeared to extend from the CapltoL The effect was magnificent. The bicy clers were some distance In advance of the rest of tbe procession. Each wheelman carried at legist two Chinese lanterns, and some of the wheels were rigged so as to carry ten or a dozen. As the head of the line passed the reviewing staud the cannon were boomed and an extra volley of fire works set off. About fifty rockets were set off at once from a point back ot tbe stand and a cloud of blue and red balls and golden sparks floated over tbe governor's head. RXSPOVDDfO TO 8AIXTH. He stood between Col. Berret and Mr. Mattingly, and tipped his hat in response to tbe salutes and cheers. Each rider took off lUs bat as be passed tbe stand, and some waived lanterns over their beads, some Of tbe riders were strung all over with lanterns, especially those on tricycles, who had more room. On one of tbe tandems a lady rode with her husband, and waived a salute as she passed. Mr. Hanna, secretary Whitney's private secretary, bad his tandem mounted with a frame work representing a ship, which was bong with a score ot lanterns. Tbe wheelmen moved rapidly, and it took about ten minutes to get by. During the time they were passing tbe . word "weloome* was burned in a set pleoe over the Treasury gate. Then there was a short watt for tbe rest of the WUSa 8Paw <* darkncsv. an 1 /r hnr intf It a r'Hl k'lare of light and an rn 't n f ' Vv u" -iv.Miuo.

Th y gathered around the stand almost without a sound, as If listening for a speech. None was proposed. Then they cheered and called for the K"vernor lie stood with his hat In hand. "spe.vh' speech'"' was shouted, and the gentlemen <>n the stand urged him to speak. He sio<Mt then* silent i? .1 almost overcome with emotion at the demonstration. Then he sat down, still th. ?ill was for a sjieevh, and linally cul. Berret an>-o nnd explained that this was scarcely the time when L?OV. Shepherd should In- exported to make a speech, but that he had consented to say a fe.v words. Gov. Shepherd rose, and after the tlrst burst of enthusiasm, the mulllt ude aeeonb-d him perfect silence. He spoke in a clear, tirni \olce. EX-GOV. SHEFHRRI>?S SPEECH. "My fellow-cltlzens,*' he said, "you see before you to-night a proud and grateful man, proud of a demonstration that riches could not buy nor In fluence command, grateful for this outpouring ..f thousands of heart* Ui welcome me back to the city of my birth and the city which I love tK.-j .ad e\ery other spot on earth.
