COLUMBIAN CELEBRATION.
The Climax of the Fetes iv
New York City.
A Military Pageant of Unsur
passed Grandeur.
The Parade Fifteen Miles Low? and
Six Hours in Passing;.
A Magnificent Allegorical Profession ln
the Evening—Discovery Day Cele
brated ln the Old World
and tbe N»w.
By the Associated Press.
New Yobk, Oct. 12.—The climax of
the series of fetes in honor ol the Co
lombian anniversary waa reached today
in the grandest military pageant eeen in
this country since the close of .the war
of tho rebellion. People were present
from every state in tbe union and every
country on the globe. The morning
was ushered in with the booming of
cannon from all the forts in the harbor,
and the American and foreign war ships.
The parade started from the Battery
shortly after 10 a. m., and marched up
Broadway and Fifth avenue to Fifty
ninth atreet, where the Columbia mon
ument was unveiled.
The first division was made of United
States regulars, a batallion of cadets
from tne United States military school
at West Point, and batteries from all
the neighboring forte, the division num
bering 3500.
The second division consisted of the
United States naval brigade, 1200 blue
jackets and marines.
The third division was composed of
17,000 state militia of New York, New
Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania.
The fourth division was composed of
8000 G. A. R. veterans and 2600 S ms of
Veterans.
The fifth division was composed of
1500 letter carrier.
The sixth division was composed of
1000 New York and visiting firemen.
The seventh division was composed of
4000 exempt veterans and veteran fire
men, and tbe Seventy-third New York
volunteers.
The eighth division waa composed of
2500 members of Italian and French so
cieties.
The ninth division was composed of
4000 members of German-American ao
cietiea.
The tenth division consisted of 12,000
members of miscellaneous societies.
AT THE REVIEWING STAND.
The central point of congested
humanity in the long line of the parade
w about the official reviewing inland in
Madison square. The Old Guard es
corted Governor Flower, Vice-President
Morton, General Schofield and members
of the cabinet to the reviewing stand.
In the parties were Secretaries Rusk,
Elkins and Noble, ex-Preaident Hayes
and General Howard and staff. Baron
Fava, the Italian minister, occupied the
position of honor beaide the governor
and vice-preeident. Among othera on
adjoining stands were Russell Harrison
and wife, ex-Governor Walter, Cavaliere
de Bonae, the Italian consul general;
Marquis Imperiali anil other notables.
The crowd around the reviewing
stand awarmed within the lines marked
off, and the police were compelled to
Bummon patrol wagons and drive them
along the line. Consternation ensued,
but the crowd gradually worked back
warda.
When the head of the grand parade
reached the city hall at 10:25 a.m , there
waa a scene of great enthusiasm. The
Weet Pointers called out even greater
enthusiasm than the leaders of the
parade. The Ninth regulars followed in
full strength ; then came the Twenty
first infantry. Both the Ninth and
Twenty-third presented a fine appear
ance, and it waa hard to award the
palm between tbem. Then came the
engineers, rumbling artillery, and
the Sixth infantry, till enthusiasm
reached the climax with the appearance
of the blue-jackets and marinea of the
naval brigade. The applause of the
day waa naturally reserved for the local
militia. General Fitzgerald rode at the
head, followed by the gallant Sixty
ninth, who received a tremendoua ova
tion. There waa enthusiasm when the
crack regiments, the Seventh, Twenty
second and Seventy-first, came along.
The Brooklyn and other visiting regi
ments and separate companies were also
liberally applauded; nor waa the naval
reaerve alighted, nor the G. A. R posts,
the old veteran firemen, as well as those
in active aervice. The Italian societies,
the German turnvereina and bcbuetzen
corps, were heartily applauded.
IMMENSITY OF THE CROWDS.
When the leaders of the great parade
reached Union square, it was eatimated
that fully 150,000 people were packed
therein. The police were unable to
drive them back, aa the cross streets were
jammed full also. Aa the column passed
the reviewing stand, Vice-Preaident
Morton, General Schofield and others
were kept busy lifting their hate in
acknowledgment of the salutes.
When Fifty-ninth street was reached,
Grand Marshal MuMahon took np a po
sition beaide the Columbus memorial
arch, and reviewed the pageant. The
scene at thia point surpasses description.
It ia impossible to describe tbe immens
ity of the crowd. Several women were
ao severely crushed aa to require an am
bulance, and a number of l-vliea fainted.
It ia eatimated that 50,000 men were
in line. It took fully aix hours to pass
a given point. The parade was over 15
miles long.
COLUMBUS MONUMENT UNVEILED.
After the military pageant, the crowda
directed their steps to Central park,
where the Columbua monument waa un
veiled. The exercises at the monument
consisted of addresses of presentation to
the city and reaponaes, and a blessing by
Archbishop Corrigan.
ANOTHER PAGEANT.
A Magnificent Allegorical Parade In
New York Last Night.
Nsw York, Oct. 12.—Hardly had the
last strains of music died away from the ,
neighborhood of Columbua monument,
than New York and her 500,000 or
more visitors, were eager to witness an
other pageant. Tbe scenes of the morn
ing were repeated. It seemed as if
5,000,000, instead of 3,000,000, had gath
ered to watch the last great sight of the
three days' series of events celebrating
the discovery of America. The parade
was remarkable, from the fact that it
made a wonderful showing of the use
electricity could be put to, with its pow
er atid its light.
Shortly alter 3 o'clock the different
bodio» which were to take part in the
parade mustered about the Battery and
the lower Dart of Broadway, and the
police began to clear the line of march.
The way was cleared and the crowd
waited, but tbe procession did not ap
pear. An Associated Presa repreaenta
live basted up and down the line, try
ing to find the cause of the delay, and at
length he found it. All the matter waa
queen Isabella's tights.
"The Goddess of Liberty has taken
my tights," exclaimed Queen Isabella,
"and I'm not going to tit with Ferdi
nand wearing an Indian squaw drees!"
This was spoken from float five of the
allegorical pageant, as the procession waa
being formed. Queen Isabella waa not
the only one in trouble. Fame and
Electra had an argument over a blonde
wig and the epatka flew. Amerigo
Vespucci blamed poor old innocent
William Perm for taking his cape. Perm
and Vespucci made a search and it waa
discovered that one of the Toltec sun i
worshippers was the guilty one.
While the troubles wore disturbing
the miud6 of the character portrayera,
amah of impatient humanity, extend
ing from the battery to central park,
was wondering why the procession did
not loom up. After an hour bad elapsed,
and the parade had not started, Mayor
Grant sent word that it must go on at
once. Those in command of the floats
were told to hustle. They did ao, and
9:30 caw
THE 810 SHOW UNDER WAY.
The route of the parade waa up Broad
way to Fourth street, weet around
Washington square to Fifth avenue, to
Fourteenth street, to Fourth avenue,
to Fifteenth street, to Fifth avenue, to
Fifty-ninth Btreet.
First came a platoon of mounted po
lice, followed by a body of bicyclists,
1000 strong, each bearing a flag and
lantern. The cyclists rode 12 aoreast
-nd formed a column at least a mile and
a half long.
After the wheelmen came 12 heralds
mounted on fine, white ateeds and pre
ceding Col. John G. Garnett, grand
marshal, and his aides. ; The aides were
all dressed in the uniform of Austrian
guarda. The brilliant cavalcade was
roundly chee-ed and won the deserved
admiration of all.
Following was the banner of Fame,
and then came 20 historical cars. The
car of Fame led the long line, and waa
followed by a bandof pre-hia toric Amer
icans. After this group came the car oi
the Bton<> Age, or the pre-hietorio car,
surrounded by a number of Indiana.
Float No. 3 waa the car of the Sun Wor
shippers. The fourth floal| waa entitled
the Victory of Genius.
Tbe statue of Columbua came next;
then came a group representing Cortez,
Pizarro, Amerigo Vespucci, Ponce de
Leon, Cabot and other great mariners.
Following came a body of Spanish
knights; then tbe cortege of King Fer
dinand and Queen Isabella, tbe Spanish
court od horseback, and then a model of
the caravel Santa Maria. .
The Puritan car, which came next,
represented a Puritan wedding, and
John Alden and Priscilla Mullens, both
riding the aame horse; both were pretty
features.
A group of Dutch colonists next at
tracted attention, and after that came
William Perm and the Quakers, aa well
aa a body of mounted Indiana.
The cor of the Capitol, a model of the
capitol at Washington, lighted within
and without, came next, and was an
object of applause and attention. In
addition, tbe 44 states, represented by
as many daughters of veterans, who
presented a most pictuiesque appear
ance.
The naval cadets and junior naval re
serve next showed np in the line of
march, and after the Seventy-first regi
ment band came a group representing
General Grant and President Lincoln
and staff. Immediately behind them
waa tbe American atandard and tbe ban
ner of Liberty.
The Liberty car waa next in line, and
showed Liberty enlightening the world.
In front of Liberty aat Justice, supported
by Equality and Fraternity. Behind
Liberty was Peace, Good Will and Hos
pitality.
Then came a group of all nations; a
a body of Continentals; an immense
banner, and General Washington and
ataff, escorted by the Waahington conti
nental guarda, Waahington light in
fantry and frontier scouts.
Coming after the scouts were the
chiefs of the allied tribes on horeeback,
and then a body of Indiana and another
large banner.
Following the last-named banner waa
the car of the rices. The Press waa
represented by a beautiful woman
dressed in black, and coming out of an
ink bottle. She held a weather vaue in
her hand, and was surrounded by peons.
Behind her were a number of printers
at work, showing the whole process of
printing a newspaper. Official pro
gramme were dietributed aa souvenirs
from this car as it rolled along.
Following the presa car came the car
of music, the car of science, the car of
poetry, audtbecarof romance; and then
came a car which won probably more
applause than any other in the parade,
the car of American women, intend< d to
show the supremacy of American women
over the women of all other parte of the
world.
Next came the car of the oceans, fol
lowed by Columbia'a ship of state, by
more banners, by more music, and by
the battalion of progress.
LAST, BUT NOT LEAST,
of the beautiful Moats came the car of
Electra, labeled "Tr.e Hydra of Light
ning, controlled by the Genius of Edi
aon." It was 30 feet long, drawn by 10
horsea, and illuminated by 3000 electric
lighta. Three hundred little girls, in
metallic costumes, stood on a revolving
disc, and reflected tbe thousands of
lights on tbe float. In the centre of
his group waa a globe, with long latitu
dinal lines marked in electric lights. It

By the Associated Press, t
Fresno, Oct. 12.—Emil L. Tretton, j
one of the leading stockmen and land j
owners of Squaw valley, was in Fresno
today aud gave some interesting inform- ,
ation concerning Evans and Sontag.
Two weeks ago tomorrow, Tretton was i
out on the cattle range looking after his '
stock. About 3 o'clock in the after- )
noon, while some distance from ,
home, he saw, not very far from j
bis bouse, some one talking to
his boy. He thought nothing
more about it, but went on towaids his j
home. As he neared the house, aud
just as he was crossing a small creek,
tie noticed a man standing near the
trail about 30 yards in front of him, to
wards the house. As Mr. Tretton ap- ,
proached the man, the stranger called
out: "Is that you, Emil?"
Tretton replied, "Yes, it's me."
Tretton knew Evans about 10 years
ego in Hanford, but was not very well
acquainted with him. Aa he approached
Evans he was surprised to see another 1
man standing just behind Evans. He
at once knew that the two men w-.r :
Evans and Sontag.
They were standing with their backa ,
together. Evana waa looking down the
trail, and Sontag toward the houee.
Tretton supposed they were after horses,
and ao to get rid of them as early ac pos
sible, he said to them that he would give
them a couple of horses. Evana replied
they were not after horses, but wanted
something to eat.
They accompanied Tretton to the
houae, and the appearance of the men
badly frightened Mrs. Tretton and the
children. Evans observed this, and
aaid they need have no fear; that they i
would not be harmed. When the meal
waa ready the two men aat at the table,
one facing the window and the other the
door. They ate with their guna asrosa
their knees.
The two men left Tretton'a r'aee at
sundown. When asked \f be aid rot
think that the robbers wjsre Stilt in hits
neighborhood, Tretton ercmded the flttes- 1
tion, and aaid that, owing to hxsA a?<d j
his family having to live in that com
munity, he would hot dure to giv;> hia
opinion.
GENERAL, M'WOK'S BSIPOBi',
Be Dwells Upon Icdlaa Troubles in
Arizona Mirl New Mexico,
Washington, Oct. 12.—The annual
report of General McO-ok, commanding
the department of Ariz has been
received by the war department. He
dwells at length upon Indian depreda
tions, and particularly on the conduct of
tbe Kid, a San Carlos Apache Indian
and refugee from the civil authorities.
His escapades, the general says, have
caused much anxiety to the white peo
ple living near the border of the White
Mountain reservation, aa well as to tbe
Indiana who live upon it. It seems that
this Indian killed many persons during
May and June last, but every plan
and device put in operation to entrap
this wily aavage failed. He eluded them
all.
The conditions surrounding the Na
vajo Indian reservations, the report
saye, are a constant canse of anxiety to
tbe Indian bureau, army and civil au
thorities of Arizona and New Mexico.
There are 9000 Indians living beyond
the limita of the reßervation. They have
been living upon unsurveyed landa for
generationa, and claim these locations
as their homes. General McCook says
in order to assist these people, the reser
vation should be divided into diatricta
and an army officer sent into each dis
trict to make an examination with a
view to establishing a system of irri
gation and developing a supply of water
by artesian wells, etc. General McCook
suggests the above plan in tbe interest
of peace, for a conflict with these In
dians, who are in great numbers and
well armed, would be very aeriona bu. i
neea. He further auggeate tbe elimina
tion from tbe civil and military admin
istration, of the affairs of this tribe.
SHOT HIS SWEETHEART.
A Rejected Lover Mortally Wounds an
Oregon Girl.
PoRTLANn, Ore., Oct. 12.—Mies Brudel
Morden, aged 18, was ahot and probably
mortally wounded near htr home at
Mount Tabor Villa, tonight, by Brudoth
Wolf, aged 21. For aome time Wolf
had been keeping company with Miss
Morden, but she had apparently grown
tired of bia attentions. A bout h 8
o'clock tonight Wolf met Miss Morden
and her sister in the road. He asked
Brudel to take a walk with him, and
when ahe refuaed, he seized her by tbe
hand, and, drawing a revolver, shot her
in the left breast. The girl fell to the
ground, and Wolf ran to the woods. An
examination showed that the bullet had
penetrated the girl'a lung, and that
there is little hope of her recovery.
Great excitement prevails, and threats
of lynching are made.

CONGREGATIONAL COUNCIL.
Triennial Assembling or the Body at
Alluneapoils.
Minneapolis, Oct. 12.—The triennial
Congregational council met here today.
The secretary'a report will show a grati
fying increar-e in membership. The
Home Missionary society report sho-vg
favorable progtesa in the work. The
report of Chrietian unity, haila the
appearance of a enirit looking to
that end in all Christendom, Rnr j
recommends that minor pcinta of differ
ence be laid ajide in order to facilitate
the object. The committee on Sabbath
obaervance makea a sttong plea for keep
ing that day in accordance with the
ppirit in which it waa ohserved by the
forefathers; condemns Sunday travel
ing, theater-going and Stu.day papers;
and save tbe opening of the woifd's fair
on Sunday would result in appalling de
moralization.
The body was called to order by Presi
dent Northrop. An address of welcome
waa delivered by Rev. Geo. H. Wella, of
Plymouth church, and responded to by
Dr. Northrop. For moderator, Rev. Dr.
A. H. Quint, of Boßton, was chosen
almost unanimously.
Dr. Quint waß escorted to the chair,
and gave in terse words a plain, earnest
address, urging the bnrial of past dif
ferences. The council proceeded to
elect general asaiatant moderators, re
sulting in tbe choice of B. M. Cnrtch
mg, of Michigan, and Rev. George
Lowe (colored), of South Carolina.
Assistant ngistrars were chosen and the
usual committees appointed, w hen the
council adjourned till afternoon.
In the atteruoon a number of reports
were considered, and in the evening
Rev. Charles Limson, of St. Johnsbury,
Vt., preached a etrmon at Plymouth
church.
BRECKINRIDGE BACKS OUT.
The Eloqnent Kentuchlan Will Not
Oiate at the Woild's Fair.
Chicago, Oct. 12 — Congressman W.
C. Breckinridge will not deliver an ora
tion at the world's fair next Thursday.
He telegraphed President Palmer, of
the national committee, politely declin
ing.
Major Handy, of the press department
of the fair, thinks Breckinridge's decis
ion is based largely on tbe inimical atti
tude towards him by the Chicago preaa
at the time the Kentuckian was oppos
ing the world's fair appropriation bill in
thech. iig days of the last session. It
is hardly thought probable that any
substitute will be named at this late
day, and tho officials will probably con
tent themselves with tbe eloquence of
Chauncey M. D' pew. who ia also on the
prograinua for an oration.
SPRINGER'S REPLY. •
Becretnry North's Charges Are Not
Wotthy of Consideration.
SFBiNoiHaj>i 111., Oct. 12.—Hon. W.
M. Springer was recently charged in an
letter by Secretary North, of the
National Association of Wool Manufac
turers, with a misute of wool statistics
n hia discussion of the tariff. Springer
has wtitten a letter in reply, to be pub
lished iv tho State Register, showing
that North's references to the prices of
scoured wool in the United States and
Europe rest only on assertion, as there
are no quotations on scoured wool in
this country. Therefore, Noath's state
ment has no responsibility to the con
troversy.
