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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
The Registration In the Country Is Not
Panning Out to Please Them.
It Looks Decidedly
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
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

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

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
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

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.

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
Minister Lincoln replied: "Your tele

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

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. Many Irißh members of
the house of commons and other ad
mirers of Parnell marched the whole
distance to the tomb. 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
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

general. Mercier was admitted to bail

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.

strange Texan. It seems that
the two men were arrested for
boree stealing two weeks ago, and
given examinations and turned loose.
Instead of leaving the conntry, they at
tempted to terrorize the com
munity by shooting at people,
and were again arrested. Constable
Reilly started with the men for Buffalo,
150 miles distant. A party of masked
men came upon their camp the first

filled each prisoner full of bullets, sev
ering their heads and mutilating their
bodies in a fearful manner.

Montreal, Que., Oct. 10.—A report
comes from Three Rivers that the
French population is greatly incensed

consul, and published in the official

reflections concerning the habits of the
people of Three Rivers. The people are
so indignant that the windows in the
American consulate have been smashed.
