Although there was n" sunrise gun
t. awaken the ever-patriotic Phoeni
cians to celebrate the founding of
the nation, and the sleep disturbing
guns and cannon crackers were
strictly tabooed, the festivities of the
Fourth started early in the city.
Karly in the morning the crowds
t-laitc.t to throng the streets, and
until Lite at night, throngs paraded
i.p and down, some just walking, pari
j-oir.g somewhere, but the major or
tion headed for Riverside, where all
Kirts of exercises, athletic competi
tions and amusements were in full
jny.
The first of the big doings came
t.ff in the downtown streets. A pu
i.tde, alwav the delight of the smail
Ih and his parents too. was staged
by those ill charge of the city's cele
bration. Starting at the Polk street armory,
the assemblage, headed by mounted
platoon of ixihce and deputies from
the sheriffs office, made their way
through the gaily decorated streets.
-Id Glory as usual was the principal
decoration of man. beast, machine
:ind building. From every point of
vantage, flags were flying, the maj
ority of the business buildings were
covered with bunting, and practically
tveiy individual in the parade, had
home insignia of the nation's colors
pinned on somewhere.
The First Regiment band in their
ratty white uniforms, with instru
ments blaring out a patriotic medley,
headed the procession. Company A.
X. G. A., was in second place, fol
lowed by Company F. the new or
ganization. The National Guard
Cadets, made up of young boys too
young to enter the Guard, made a
good showing.
The Spainsh War Veterans and the
Iyal irder of Moose, the two or
ganizations in charge of the day's
festivities, were out in large num
Wrs. The Moose were attired all
in white with contrasting red badges,
hats and sox.
Following the two organizations
came autos loaded with officials of
the city anl county governments, and
several loads of Civil War veterans.
The veterans received an ovation
while passing through
crowds.
The fire department
force, headed bv Chief

Wright and
Assistant Chief Simmons. The Wood
men of the World and the Modern
Woodmen of America made excep
tionally good showins.
Following the Various organizations

Not long after the parade was over, j
the crowds started for Riverside, j
w here the main celebration was being j
held. By noon all records for at- j
tendance hail been blown sky high.
It was estimated the pleasure seekers i
were surging in through the gate at I
the rate of about 250 every ten
minutes. I
The literary exercises were in '
charge of the Spanish-American War j
Veterans, with J. P. Bates as chair- .

GERARD SAYS ANOTHER WEEK
BEFORE GERMAN REPLY READY
"associated press dispatchI '
WASHINGTON. July . Meyer
Gerard conjectured a week would be
required to finish the German's re
ply to the last American note. It
is known that Germany will make a
counter proposal, the exact nature of
which is still under discussion there.
Officials regard the delay as a
hont-ful sign and believe it will be a
means to bring the two countries to
a closer understanding.
The Gerard advices portray a fuv
orable atmosphere in Berlin. It is
inferred the reply will be friendly and
possibly satisfactory. In a general
way it is known Germany is endea
voring to avoid attacks on passenger
vessels of any nationality but its dif
ficulty is to frame the proposal in
such a way as to prevent the allies
shipping ammunition and contraband
on such ships.
One suggestion, discussed in Ber
lin official circles recently of which
the American government has been
advised, contemplated that passenger
vessels clearing from American ports
be immune from attack, placing the
burden on the I'nited States to in
terpret just what is meant by "a
vessel primarily en gaffed in passen
ger traffic."
While the L'niteil States claim's un.
tier international law the right to
have citizens travel on all ships
whether or not they carry contra
band, Germany is hoping in some
way. it is understood to impose a
moral obligation whereby Americans
will be persuaded not to take pass
age on vessels devoted chiefly to

whole Mtory of his life, particularly
the recent events leading to the
placing of the capitol bomb, ftnd at

gan. Also will be reveal "'here he

Holt made the decJAratiorit to Dr.
Guy Cleghorn, jail physician, who
said he is anxious to toll hia story in

such n condition that It may he in
advisable to remove him from the

Smith said he will lie guided by the
doctor's rej-jort and postpone the ar

Morgan has confined to improve.
Specialists ha.vf announced him out
J of danger.
I Morgan received V. H. Porter, a
I business associate, and police. Com
missioner Arthur Woods, an eld
friend, and chatted cheerfully. Holt's
condition is so gnve he was ordered
not to be disturbed and nobody fcut
his counsel was permitted to see him.
Holt will help to discount the theory
that he is Erich Muenter. the Hr
vard professor, who disappeared in
l'H4. after his wife died. It waa
charged Muenter poisoned her. He
declared to T. J. Reldy of New York,
who has been retained ae counsel, he
had never been at Cambridge. Holt
has eaten little since his arrest. His
ntomae.:h is in such a condition as tg
make it difficult to assimilate nour
ishment. Holt according to ileidy 8nid he
was in Germany in 1906. Earlier that
day Holt told the sheriff he could
not remember where he was thnt
year. Charles Wood, assistant dis
trict attorney of Nassau eountr. who
said he was in the German depart
ment in 1905-6 with Muenter. visited
Holt today but was unable to identlfy
the prisoner as his classmate. Woo
said Holt was in such a state of ut
ter collapse he thought it best to
look at him again when Holt was
improved to satisfy himself on the
point. Word was received at the
jail tonight that-an officer wa ex
pected to arrive from Cambridge to
morrow who Co--Id positively identify
Muenter. Dr. Cleghorn said Holt was
suffering chiefly from lack bf nour
ishment. Holt is very weak, he aaid. "I am
sure he had not eaten for several days
hefore going to the Morgan home. He
is suffering with intestinal trouble so
often associated with an unsound
mind. For this reason the physician
believes it may be neceesary to post
pone the arraignment. There was
some mystery today regarding the
Identity of the person who directed
Reidy to reTresent Holt.- Also in
what capacity Allan Pinkerton or the
detective agency. whc appeared today,
is acting. Reidy declared he knew
Holt while the latter wan at Cornell.
Pinkerton said he was employed by
the authorities of Nassau county.
