The Parade of School Children and Students. , No Less Than Twenty-five Thousand Youngsters in Line. Schoolboys Tear Uowa a British Fla; Grand Olsplay of Fireworks at Brooklyn Bridge—ln cidents. By the Associated Pro's. Nzw York, Out. 10.—The celebration of the Columbus anniversary was taken up this morning with a parade of etu dente in schools and colleges, in which about 25,000 young people took part. It, started at Fifty-seventh street, marched down Fifth avenue to Seventeenth street, back to Fifth avenue, thence along Fifth avenue and under an arch at University place, where the parade disbanded. The procession was made up of 20 regiments of grammar school children, num bering 10,500, and 1000 children from the Long Island city schools. The Roman Catholic schools of the city were represented by 5500 scholars. Then came students of Columbia college to the number of 1000; University of New York, 1200; College of New York, 500. These were followed by students of medical and pharmaceutical colleges, art and other schools, uniformed military schools, private and other church and miscellaneous schools. GORGEOUS DECORATIONS. The day opened at sunrise with a sa lute from the cannon of old Fort Colum bus, on Governor's island. The city was in gala attire. Everywhere public buildings, business houses and private houses, elevated trains and surface cars, trucks, wagonp, and even horses were decorated with flags, bunting streamers, gonfalons, rosettes, festoons and gar lands in honor of the day. The weather was perfect, with bright sunshine and crisp, invigorating air. On improvised stands, front steps, win dows, trucks and wagons, at intersect ing streets, in fact at every coign of vantage, were as many as could secure footing, to view the procession. The marching column was reviewed by Vice-President Morton, Governor Flower and the mayor of the city. The boye preserved excellent order, and passed the stands with the steady tread of veterans. On one stand 2000"school girls, dressed in red, white and blue, eang patriotic potior es the'.f nfbJW passed by. Ex-President Cleveland was among the witnesses of the parade. A BRITISH FLAG TORN DOWN. Twenty-five Harlem school boys com ing down Columbus avenue to join the parade this morning, saw a large Eng ligh flag floating in front of a cigar store kept by an Englishman. No other flag was displayed, and the boys demanded of the store-keeper that he either rahse the United States flag besides the Eng lish, or lower the English flag. This he refused to do. After much angry dis cussion the boys pulled down the flag and tore it in pieces. The Englishman was very indignant, but contented him self with threatening to have the boys arrested for malicious destruction of property. FIREWORKS AT BROOKLYN BRIDGE. Brooklyn bridge was the place of at traction this evening. A gorgeous dis play of fireworks had been promised, and at an early hour great crowds began to gather at points of vantage on the river front of both cities, while itundreds of crafts loaded with passengers were anchored at favorable points in the river and harbor All the high build ings near the river were utilized. The display fully met the expectations of the people. Among the set pieces was a statue of Columbus, and a representation of the ship in which the discoverer set sail for Genoa. Two tons of powder were used in colored fire for a series of 15 illuminations, which was accompa nied with salvos of artillery and flights of screaming rockets, bombs, Roman candles and gas balloons. One of the most striking displays was a reptesenta tion of Niagara falls in silver fire. It was 625 feet wide, and represented a dazzling cascade of shining silver, 200 feet high. A FATAL ACCIDENT. An accident occurred on the pier at the foot of Beekman street, that was probably attended with loss of life. The pier was packed with people. On the southern side the ship Reaper was tied up, and the captain sold seats on the vessel. She being unloaded and stand high out of the water, necessitated the running of a gang plank 30 feet long from the ship to the dock, at an angle of 65 degrees. This gangway was crowded, when suddenly there was a crash and the plank broke in the mid dle. Some of the people were thrown in a heap on the pier, many sustaining painful cuts and bruises. At least one man fell into the river and was drowned. CHAUNCEY DEPEW ORATES. Silas G. Pratt's musical cantata, Co lumbus was rendered in Carnegie hull touight under the auspices of a commit tee oi one hundred. The chief feature pf the everting was the speech of Chaun cey M. Depew, in which he spoke of the advance of the world since the discovery of America, and the results of Colum bus' voyagej etc. The procession of children today, he said, was the flower of the civil and religious liberty of the American people. In the a«e of Co lumbus bigotry ruled the state, and bigotry in the church was one of the things Columbus had to fight, while superstition was al most universal amongst them. It was an age when all races and all nations were arrayed against one another; but today the children of parents of every creed, descendants of every race, marched under one flag and to one mu sic—the music of the nationality of the flag of the United States—all in harmo ny to the flag and the music, growing up TUESDAY MORNING, OCTOBER 11, 1892. YOUNG AMERICA'S DAY. to be American citizens, no matter what their creed or religion. ''If there is anything I detest more than another," continued Depew, "it is that spirit of incredulous historical in quiry, which doubts everything in the modern Bpirit, which destroys all like ness of heroes, and that which has been the inspiration of heroism through ali these centuries. We are told that Wil liam Tell never existed; that Washing ton had no hatchet, and that Pocahontas never saved the life of a settler. It is this spirit that would destroy our Co lumbus. Columbus was a poet, but he believed God had meant him to convert a pagan people, and he found them. He was the admiral of the ocean be cause he was made Christopher Colum bus to carry Christ across the sea." At the conclusion of Mr. Depew's re marks, he departed, and the programme was carried out. The cantata was di vided into six parts—the prologue; coun cil of Balamanca; Columbus and his boy Diego; Queen Isabella at her court; the voyage, and a grand triumphant march and reception. FEDERAL PARTICIPATION. Washington, Oct. 10.—A special meeting of the cabinet was had this afternoon, to arrange for federal partici pation in the Columbian celebration in New York this week. It was decided that all the members of the cabinet should be present in New York some time during the week, to represent the administration. If President Harrison eoes at all, he will probably leave Washington tomorrow night. THE CELEBRATION IN SPAIN. Voyage of the Queen Regent and the Infant King to Huelva. Cadiz, Oct. 10. — Enormous crowds watched the departure of the gunboat Conde Vallerno, conveying Queen Regent Christina and the royal party to Huelva, where they will take part in the Columbus celebration. The gun boat was escorted by a fleet of foreign warships. When the warship arrived off Huelva 6he was met by Sefior Cano vas Delcastilo, the municipal authori ties, diplomats who are visiting Huelva, and other dignitaries. Twenty-three Spanish and foreign men-of-war were ranged in line, and, as the gunboat with the royal party on board entered the bay, the nearest war ship fired a royal salute. This was repeated by the next ship in line, and so on until every one of the 23 vessels had saluted little King Alfonso, who, with his mother, on the Conde Vallerno, came to anchor off the Monastery La Rabida. The royal party was taken ashore, and to the old monastery where Columbus received his first encouragement in the scheme which led to the discovery of the new world. After inspecting the venerable pile, the royal party returned to the gunboat, which then proceeded to Huelva. The queen regent and King Alfonso will dis embark in state tomorrow. FILLED WITH DISMAY. | REPUBLICANS BADLY FRIGHTENED IN NEW TORE. The Registration In the Country Is Not Panning Out to Please Them. It Looks Decidedly Democratic. New York, Oct. 10.—A secret meeting of the chairmen of the Republican county committees of the state was called by Chairmad Hackett, of the Re publican state committee, held this afternoon. Forty-six out of the sixty counties were represented. The regis tration of Republican voters was con sidered at length, and it is said most of the chairmen felt obliged to say they were greatly dis appointed with the result of the first day's registration in the rural districts, the -Democrats having made a much larger registration than the Republicans. They were earnestly appealed to by Warner Miller, Tom Piatt, Secretary McComas and Senator Sherman, to re double their effortß for a full registra tion. A Michigan Combine. Detroit, Mich., Oct. 10.—The Demo crats have gone into a combination with the Populists on legislative candidates, to control, if possible, the choice of a United States senator by the next legis lature. They have endorsed each other's nominations in 26 cases so far, and the legislative nominations are not all made. It is understood tbat where the Populist candidates were first named, as they have been in most of the districts, they shall be at liberty to vote as their first choice for Eugene H. Belden for United States senator. ■ r When his candidacy becomes hopeless, they are then to sup port the Democratic candidate, who will probably be Governor Winans. Fusion in Minnesota. St. Paul, Minn., Oct. 10.—The Demo cratic state central committee this after noon withdrew D. R. Hibbs, A. L. Sack et and James Brown from the electoral ticket, and indorsed in- their respective places William Meighen, James Dillon and A. L. Strombers, the Populists'can didates. They also indorsed A. H. Hol loway cf the People's, in place r>f John C. Oswald, who resigned sonde time ago. A Chicago Yarn. Chicago, Oct. 10. —A morning paper says an attempt was made by the local Democratic executive committee to bribe the messenger of the People's party not to take his party's nomination papers in this state, to Springfield, and so prevent their being printtd in the official ballots. The sum alleged agreed upon was $3000. At the Inst moment the messenger changed his mind, and the plan fell through. Georgia Republicans Won't Fuse. Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 10.—The Republi can electoral ticket of Georgia will not be fused with that of the People's party. This was decided at a called meeting of selected candidates. The question was put to them whether half of their number would not give way to the same number of the People's party nominees. The refusal was emphatic. Sherman Speaks in New York. New York, Oct. 10. —Senator John Sherman addressed an audience that filled Cooper Union hall tonight on the issues of the present campaign. TEX PAGES. TENNYSON'S OBSEQUIES.

Caprivl and Eulei.berg Resigned fiom the Prussian Ministry—A Terrible Storm In Venezuela—Oth er Forelgu News. By the Associat ed Press. London, Oct. 10.—On Saturday last Hallam Tennyson sent the following dispatch to Hon. Robert T. Lin coln, United Stateß minister to Great Britain, which reached him at Liver pool: "Will you be a pall-bearer on Wednesday, at 12:30, at Westminster Abbey?" Minister Lincoln replied: "Your tele gram has reached me just as I am sail ing for Atr erica. I regret most deeply that my departure prevents me from ac cepting your kind invitation and having the honor of representing my country men on this occasion, so afflicting to all the world, and not less mournful to America than to England." Lord Tennyson's family was anxious to have America represented among the pall bearers, and today asked Mr. Henry VVhite, secretary of the American lega tion to act in place of Lincoln. White signified his acceptance of the invita tion. All the members of the Tennyson family assembled at Aldworth today and took a last look at the dead before the coffin lid was closed and screwed down. Lady Tennyson was the last to leave the room, and alone in the sacred nees of her sorrow she bade a final adieu. VENEZUELA ADVICES. A Disastrous Storm Sweeps Over the Country—Political Refugees. La Guavra, Venezuela, Oct. 10.—The 1 most disastrous storm the city has ex perienced in 40 years swept down ' Silla de Caracas mountain last night. 1 The damage done is great, and spreads over a wide area. It is feared there has been great losb of life. Only meagre details have so far been ob tained, but it is known that the moun tain railroad which connects La Guayra with Caracas, has been completely de stroyed. All communication with Car acas is cut off. The late acting president and cabinet, who were in hiding here since Crespo and his forces captured Caracas, have been taken to Curacoa, where they can not be reached by the insurgents. They were conveyed thither by Spanish and .French warships. Mourning for Parnell. Dublin, Oct. 10.—Almost every person yesterday displayed a mourning badge or emblem, generally of ivy, in memory of Parnell.

Waterford, Lim erick, Kilkenny, Drogheda and Clonmel corporations were fully represented. The procession occupied an hour in passing a given point. There were no decorations in the city, but the attitude of the populace was sympathetic and respectful. The appearance of the Fen ian, Stephens, at the grave evoked bursts of applause. Austrian Riders Banqueted. Berlin, Oct. 10.—A reception in honor of the Austrian officers who took part in the recent long distance ride, was given at the royal palace at Pots dam this evening. Emperor William complimented the winners and handed them ' prizes. The decoration of the fourth class order of the Red Eagle was conferred by the emperor on Count Starke mburg, the Austrian rider who won. British Crop Failures. London, Oct. 10.—Commenting upon a special account of the condition of British crops, published in its columns, the Times says: "The conclusion on the whole is that the present year will be disastrous for the British farmer. The chief loss will be in wheat, while there will be no serious offset in any other crop. The outlook for the winter is gloomy for all classes. It becomes a grave question how many farmers will be able to struggle through it." Caprivi and Eulenberg Resign. Berlin, Oct. 10.—The Hanover Courier says it is learned from what it deems a good source that the difference of opinion between Chancellor Yon Caprivi and the Prussian ministers especially Eulenberg, in regard to the military bill is so acute that both the chancellor and Count Eulenberg have resigned their offices. The statement has not, however, been confirmed, and it is believed the facts are exaggerated. Mercier Must Stand Trial. Quebec, Oct. 10.—Judge Chauveau rendered judgment today committing ex-Premier Mercier. of Quebec, to stand trial on all the charges of malfeasance brought against bim by the attorney general. Mercier was admitted to bail on his own personal recognizance. Riverside Crops. Riverside, Oct. 10.—The raisin crop is about half picked. The crop will not exceed three-fourths of an average yield. The quality is first class. Grapes al ready picked are drying satisfactorily, and no damage was done by the shower a few days ago. The weather is now fa vorable for curing. The coming crop of oranges is estimated by competent per sons at 2000 carloads, one-quarter of which will be of the navel variety. A Cure for Rheumatism. Dr. P. A.
