RAIN WAS INCSSANT DOWNPOUE YWZDAY U]ON WR VTEPPFR VZPRRAWK 8reets N ctisemfy :Deetea in the Sore...amnewsl ar Old An 0ciatioms TI=Os, The veterans and their families and friends who came to the city yestosdoy by the thousands fOund an unproitlos wel come, so far as the eleinents were con cerned. The rain that began early Matne day evening continued In a downpour throughout the night, and until close upon 3 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The streets throughout the forenoon were practically deserted by pedestrians, and there was lit tlie out of the ordinary to suggest that a multitude of strangers had inveded the city. The crowds about the depots were enir mous. The business of the transfer cE panties was the aStest In month. Every available vehicle in The city was premed into service to take care of the immense infux of passengers. Nearly all of the reglar drivers of cabs worked throughout laturday night and the greater part of yesterday. Hotel lobbies were crowded by bersons snxious to avold the rain. Everybody was good natured, despite the bad weather, and the fact that there was the usual hustle and bustle attendat upon the visitors trying to find places to sleep and eat. But nothing can ,dapa the ardor of the old warrior. who are gather ing here at the national capital, many of them for the last time, to renew old ac quaintances and have a good time. Four years of camp, field and march schooled these veteran saviors of the government not to complain. Those who were here seemed to feel that such an unpleasant be ginning must presage a better ending. Later in the afternoon, when for an hour or so. the rain decreased and there was suggestion that better weather was in store, the rain thoroughfares downtown presented a scene of animation. As if by magio, men and women swarmed the streets as they started out, for sightseeing. Caught Out in the atna They walked up and down Pennsylvania avenue and not a few of them enjoyed street car rides to neighboring resorts or other places of interest. But the rain be gan again, and there was a scurrying to hotel lobbies and places of shelter. In all of the hotels of the city extra help was on hand to take care of the increased business. Many persons who failed to ar range for accommodations before their ar rival were turned away. As at the previous encampment and during inauguration times, there have come to the city a large number of persons who objected to being respon sible for a hotel room for an entire week and have trusted to good luck for places to sleep and eat. The people of Wahington are hospitable to the extreme. and they are doing every thing within their power to look after the thousands of persons who are dependent on private homes and places nur than hotels and boarding houses for living during their stay. Eating Houses Well Patronized. The number of eating houses that have come into existence within a day seems marvelous. Every empty store room has been engaged by some enterprising person and fitted for the accommodation of the visitors. And in neariy every one of them the prices are the same as those that obtain in regular places at ordinary tines. A striking feature of yesterday was the absence of music In the public streets. Fully half a hundred bands were brought to the city during the day, each accompanying some Grand Army post or military organ Ization. There was little marching, due to the rain, members of posts and musicians alike deeming it essential to find a place of shelter from the downpour. So far as could be learned, there were few violations of the excise laws. Those who had misgivings that proprietors of caravan saries and saloons would be inclined to meet the demand for hibations that is usually manifest when so many thousands of stran gers come to the city seemed happy over the fact. The street fakirs, who are always present at great gatherings like the encampment, and who are ever ready to turn their hand to make a dollar, were not caught napping. Badges and other devices tihat usually catch the eye were cast aside for the time being and umbrellas were substituted. An extraordinary trade In this useftl article, and at prices tihat were reasonable, brought many dollars into their coffers. Rift in the Clouds. There was another rift in the clouds about 5 o'clock, and the first post that had marched in a body to its hotel proceeded down the avenue from the 0th street sta tion. It was preceded by a fife and drum corps and attracted much attention. Many pleasing comments were heard on every hand regarding the decorations of public buildings and business houses. Every one seemed to feel that the people of the national- capital have done themselves jus tice and honored the old soldiers who have come to spend the week. The veterans who are already on the ground found plenty of amusement. evenwlf the rain did prevent them going about the city as they otherwise woulh have done. They sat albout the hotel lobbies, sought out old acquaintances and friends and brougit up reminiscences of the days 'when they fougtrt side by side. Not a few attend ed religious services. 'There were many strange faces in all the downtown dhurches. AMYr AND NAVY UNION. Inspector, General Hackett Tells of Good Work Dkone, The Army and Navy Union of the United States of America is a veteran military or ganisation. It was organised March 81, 1888, and incorporated under the laws of Ohio. Its objects are to take care of the sick, bury the dead and provide for depend ent widows and orphans of deceased com rades. "We seek employment for our members; we secure from Congress and other legislative bodies the enactment of laws beneficial to the welfare of our comrades and shipmates In the service, and those in civil life," said Inspector General Michael J. Hackett today. "Our membership is mostly composed of reggular soldiers, sailors and marine who have rendered faithful service to our coun try and have been honorably discharged from the service of the United States. "In reality the Army and Navy .Union Is the only veteran military organisation. In America, as the definition of the word vet eran means a man with long service. In the Army and Navy Union the- majority of Its members have served from five to thir ty-five year. in the regular armty, navy and marine corps. We are a beneficial organi mation In case of sicknes and death. "There are three garrisons load here In Washington and a ladies' auxiliary at tached to each garrison. Gen. William F.

Captain William X. Meredith, director of the bureau, was a member of the second division of the 17th Army Corps, and the blue star as a pendant to the stars and stripes forms the keystone supported by two Immense fags at the outer door. In Captain Meredith's ofl3e the decorations are centered directly over his desk, Where hang on an immense chandelier the na tional colors In artistic profusion. making a centerpiece wjich Is at once the attra. tion of the room. The ofice of Captain N.

Efeet Very Pleasiag. The main press room upstairs, however, is where the veteran will begin to realize the effect of the flag. In this immense room the effect is most Inspiring. It is over 100 feet in length, and filled with presses in. full operation. requiring the services of over 500 workmen, each one of whom has furnished his quota of decoration. Each press, with its big wheel, like the steering wheel of a ship, is festooned with flags which flutter as the money is made. Eight rows of presses, the full length of this room, each decorated In a .similar manner. makes the panorama most dazzling. In the engraving division, In the large room below the main press room, the trans fer presses, which are made of polished steel and have the appearance of a modern rapid-fire gun, the flag has been made to increase this appearance, and the long row of these presses pointed at the visitor as he proceeds along the railed portion of the room is somewhat warlike. Stili below this is another room, where the stamps are printed, which presents a most handsome appearance. The flags used in this room are all small ones, and their number is legion. Adding to the effect is the inclosing of the electric lights in red, white and blue lanterns and the winding of the columns supporting the ceiling with bunting. Pictures of McKinley and Roose velt occupy conspicuou places in this room. Takes Form of Pans. On the top floor, t3 press room No. 1, is another evidence of patelotism and artistic endeavor. Huge fihs. -of red, white and blue festoon the walls. while flags float from the presses. cliAiis are wound with bunting and pictures of Presidents and army generals are set- throughout the room in frames of shields,, the centerpiece of the whole being a huge: G; A.

In the rogm where bills are numbered, and- where hundreds of young ladies attend machings which as they stamp these numbers o* the money, have a rising and falling metion the appearance Is like a billowy se# o. flags. Then there is press room No. 6, and -the dampening room, thie stamp book room, where the young woman workers have dec orated themselves with. the badge of their chief's division, P. C. Bain of the 1st Divi sion of the 2d Army Corps. Entrances to every room and through the long corridors have been festooned and draped until the whole Interior presents a rivalry of decora tion most artistic and pleasing. RED 'X FWS PARAD.

The parade of the Improved Order of Red Men of the District of Columbia and visit ing members of the order from the various states of the Union took place this after noon at 3 o'clock.
