The Great, Civic Parade Passed off Successfully^ Seventy-five Thousand Hen Took Part in the Procession. The Magnificent Pageant Viewed by More Than a Million People—A Banquet and Ball In the Evening. ————— By the Associated Press Cuicaoo, Oct. 20.—Last night ecciety set tbe glittering seal of her approval upon the world's fair. Today it waß the turn of the people to express their ap probation, and they did it in a manner that will become historical. Of Chica go's population, every one in 20 marched ,in tbe parade; the other 19, rein foi ced by half a million visitors, packed the streets, perched on roofs and window sills and jammed the various stands along the line of match. A gigantic pro cession, to the number of 75,000 people, passed through tbe streets witout delay, always moving swiftly. The crowd that witnessed the proces sion was something astounding. Chica go, at different times, has bandied throngs of visitors, but this one was be yond anything she ever dealt with be fore. It is estimated that at least 1,200, --100 people viewed the parade, and after it was over, the majority of the down town restaurants were compelled to close their doors until tbey could attend those wbo had already gained admittance. In the main, however, Chicago was equal to the occasion. Naturally there were some accidents, —fainting of women, and children trampled upon, and here and there a man dropping from a roof. That tbe parade was bandied to finish its marcii without hindrance, was due to tne efficient police. INCIDENTS OF TBE PARADE. Although the parade was scheduled to start at 10:45 a. m., It was almost 12:30 when Chief of Police MiClaughry salut ed Vice-President Morton, who viewed the parade on a tastefully decorated stand where he wae surrounded by the members of the cabinet, diplomatic leg ations and a throng of brilliantly dressed ladies and distinguished guests. As the different governors paseed tbe reviewing stand, some on horseback and others in carriage, each wae greeted with a suc cession of cheers, which kept him bow ing many minutes. The crowd was im partial in politic*, and yetted as for Flower, of New York, as it did for McKinley of Ohio. After the dignitaries had passed, came tbe rank and file of the parade, and in a formation 10 files wide, in double rank, tbey rolled like a human wave past tbe reviewing stand for ahnost three hours. As each successive body reached the east side of tbe federal bui ding, it was greeted by 1000 little girls, arranged in the shape and draped in the colors of the American flig, each little tot carrying in her hand a dimin utive banner, and aB tbe sweet childish voices rose to cheer the militiamen, the little pieces of bunting flattered wildly. It was a beautiful and inspiring sight. The weather was admirable for the parade, and tbe sun shone brightly dur ing the early morning, Hut later the sky was overcast, and to many wbo stood hour after hour, the fresh northern breeze was a trifle uncomfortable. THE VICE-PRESIDENT'S RECEPIION. Among the pleasant incident* of the day was the hearty reception accorded Vice-President Morton. When he ap peared on the reviewing stand, from the great multitude massed in the street arose great and long-continued plaudits. With the vice-president on the receiv ing dais were President T. W. Palmer, of the national world's tlAt commission, and President H. N. Higgenhotbam of tbe local world's fair company; then came Secretary of State Foster, Attor ney-General Miller, Postmaster-General Wanamaker, Secretaries Tracy, Noble and Rusk; then ex President Hives, Gen. A T. Goshorn, director-general of •he Philadelphia centennial exhibition; Chevalier de Travera, the Italian min ister; Alfred de Claperede, the Swiss minister; Enrique Dupuy de Lome, the Spanish minister; Alfred Le (iiiait, the Belgian minister; T. De Monza Roza, tbe Portuguese minister; Caniille Krautz. commissioner-general of France. Di rector-General Davis, ol the world's fair, occupied a seat near the vice-president. The foreign world's fair commissioners, senators, congressmen, governors and other distinguished persons also occu pied advantageous positions. ONLY A FEW ACCIDENTS. Despite the immense crowds, surpris ingly few serious accidents are reported. Innumerable women fainted, but they were quickly revived, and the only se rious accident was at tbe corner of State and Adams streets, where four women were shoved into a bast ment by the crowd; three were unhiut, but the fourth could not be revived, and was taken to a hospital, where ber condition is pronounced critical. A drunken man fell from a roof to an adjoining buildirg, 20 feet helow, without apparently dis turbing him. Governor Filer was thrown from his horse at Adams and La Salle streets, the animal falling with bim; he was severely bruised, but not badly in jured. THE OUTLOOK FOR TODAY. All the prominents invited to take part in and witness the dedicatory cere monies tomorrow, have arrived. Amon them are Hon. Whitelaw Reid and Chauncey M. Depew, who will deliver the Columbian oration. The weather office announces this afternoon that there is every probability that tomorrow will be rainy and disagreeable. THE CIVIC PARADE. Particulars or Y-aterclaj'» Mag-ulfloent Pageaut Iv Chicago. Chicago, Oct. 20 —The second d%y of ihe aeries of pageants commemorative of tbe 400 th anniversary of the discov ery of America by Chriatopher Oolum bus. in connection with the dedication of tbe buildings for housing the great Columbian expoeition, opened cheerless and cold, with dull clouds obscuring the face of the sky, but in spite of theße ad verge conditions, there was no lack o( enthusiasm among the vast crowds that gathered in the city from all quarters of the country, and from all the nations of the globe, to witness this momentous event. The work of decorating the city, which has been in progress for nearly a week, was completed late yesterday afternoon, and this morning the great public buildings, the huge business structures, tbe lofty office bui d ngs in the center ot the city, and the smaller stores and private residences in the outer districts of the city were gay with bunting, banners, gonfalons, streamers and all the drapery which goes to make up a decorated city on tbe most festal occasion. Through miles and miles of streets these decorations extended. A bewildering array of colors from Louse fronts and flag-staffs and halyards stretched from capstan to foundation, with fluttering fiaglets bearing the colors and symbols of every nation un der heaven. The parade formed on the lake front, marched through two miles and a half of business streets, the leading division disbanding at the end to make way for those following, before the final divi sions had fallen into line at the start. ORDER OP THE PARADE. The parade was made up as follows: Chief of Police Mc.Claughry and in spectors, followed by a detachment of mounted police, and tbey in turn by a detachment of police on foot, the march ing company front Btretching from curb to curb, sweeping aside the pressing throng on each side of tbe street to make room for those who followed. Next came Sousa's marine band and the Mexican national band, playing martial music in turn, so that tbe blare of brass and the resounding drum were beard at all times at the head of the procession. Then came Major-General Nelson A. Miles, grand maiebal of the parade, re splendent iv all the glory aud circum stance of his official position in the army of the United States, followed by his staff and aides-de-camp. Next, Buperbly mounted, came tbe Chicago hussars, in black uniforms,with white trimmings, headed by a bugle corps, acting as an escort to the mayor and city council of Chicago, in carriages, and tbe governors of different states, surrounded by their brilliant military staffs; this closed the first division. The second division was led by the Independent Order of Foresters, 12,000 strong, marching 25 front. Next came numerous Italian societies, in which the dark green of sunny Italy showed to advantage. Following them was a gigantic float representing Columbus discovering America. Next were 300 Greeks, wearing their national colors, blue and white. Then followed the Patriotic Order of Sons of Ameiica, 8000 strong. Then followed, in close order, the Loyal Orange society, each decked with a bow ol Orange ribbon. At their heels came 3500 members oi tbe German Turnverein, headed by tbe national com mission, tbeir order attired in gray, each man having on his breast the Chi cago colore, terra cotta and white. Next were 700 members of tbe Bohemian Turner societies. Then 500 German veterans. The nationality suddenly changed again, and the plaids of bonnjr Scotland, stretched in long files, making a total of 1200 men, from whose marching bag pipes swelled their droning notes. They included 250 men of the Royal Scots regiment, clad in the royal Stuart plaid, and 50 men wearing the uniform of the famous Black Watch regiment, and those in turn by the plaids of every clan of Macs between Berwick arid John O'Groat. Britain came next in the biaek and gold of tbe Sons of Bt. George, and then, shifting the nationality again, came 2000 members of the Croatian and Polish societies. Then 10 'limes as many of the yellow-haired-'sons of Sweden. In carriages were 16 pretty girls, representing in their attire the national female costumes of Sweden and Norway. Then came 2000 boys from the city schools; then repteseniatives from every Grand Army post in Chicago and Cook connty, and many from adjacent counties, in all about 800, followed by a float representing the famous old Moni tor as she appeared before fighting the Merrimac. Sons of Veterans, Modern Woodman of America, and uniformed rank of tho Royal Arcanum and Knights of Pythias, 2000 in all, closed the division. The third grand division was headed by fifty mounted members of the Uni formed Knights of St. Patrick. Next was the uniformed rank of the Catholic Order of Foresters, 850 strong; then 45 courts of tho order of Foresters, with 4440 men, as a subdivision; 34 courts aud 2050 men as another subdivision, and 31 courts with 2644 men as another subdivision. Following them came 700 'men of the Hibernian Rifles, and then 4000 members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians; neat 1000 Catholic Knights of America; 800 members of tbe Catho lic Benevolent union ; 10,000 members of Polish Catholic orders, and 1000 mem bers of the Society of St. John the Bap tist. Miscellaneous Catholic societies numbering 1200 closed the parade. AT THE REVIEWING STAND. The reviewing stand was at the north front of the government building, on Adams Btreet, between Clark and Dear born. It was flanked by additional stands on Dearborn and Clark street fronts. All, as well as the government building itself, were superbly decorated. In tbe absence of President Harrison, Vice-President Morton was given the place of honor as the reviewing officer. Grouped with and near him were the governors of various states assembled here, foreign diplomats, other digni taries and distinguished guests, while on the side stands on Dearborn and Clark streets, were 1400 school children, dressed in the national colors, who sang patriotic songs, from time to time, aB the procession filed past. In all, about 6000 people witnessed the parade from these stands. the people's holiday. This was "«sentially the people's day in tbe series of ceremonies.

The Plea That Material Wit nesses Are Absent. Chris Evans and John Sontag the absenteei Referred To. The Court Decides That They Are Like ly to Kemaln Absent and Oidurs the Trial to Proceed—Ju rors Selected. By the Associated Press. Fresno, Oct. 20. —A large number of people gathered in Judge Holmes's court this morning, to witness the pro ceedings in the case of the people vs. George Sontag, indicted with John Son tag, his brother, and Chris Evans, for robbing a train near Rolinda, August 3d. Within the rail sat Mrs. Chris Evans and daughter, Detectives Smith, Ti,acker and Hickey and other officers. When Sontag came into court he took a seat beside Mrs. Evans and daughter, and freely conversed with them. He watched the proceedings closely, and often made some suggestion to hia attor ney. Sontag is a rather handsome man, 5 feet 10 inches high, and of heavy build. He attracted much attention, but did not seem to notice the scrutiny he was undergoing. Mrs. Evans and ber fair-haired daughter also received much attention. The former was dressed very plainly in a gown of dark material. Eva looked quite attractive in a neat blue gown with a jaunty sailor bat. Her mother seemed in excellent spirits, and appeared to be considerably amused at times about some of the mat ters which tbey were conversing upon. District Attorney W. D. Tnppeu and Attorney Reel B. Terry appeared for the ' prosecution, and W. O. Caldwell and G. < G. Goucher for the defense. After call- i ing off a list of witnesses, which was a , long one, Attorney Caldwell moved for a , continuance, on the grounds of the ab sence of material witnesses. ' Attorney Caldwell read an affidavit by 1 the defendant in support of-the motion i for a continuance. It stated that the , defendant could not safely proceed to trial on account of the absence of David Scott, John Sontag and Chris Evans, 1 all material witnesses. He expected to prove by Scott that late on the afternoon of July 25, 1892, the defendant took a train at Visalia for Fresno, and at the time the defendant boarded this train, he was intoxicated and had to be assist ed on tbe train by Scott. His testimony is material, claims the defendant, be cause the prosecution will prove that the defendant did not get off the train at Fresno, but went further to Rolinda for the purpose of ascertaining the places where the train stopped. Tbe presence of John Sontag and Evans was also material, because tbey could and would testify that they did not see the defendant on the night of August 3d, and that neither of tbem was in bis company at any time during that night. Caldwell, therefore, asked for further time, so that these witnesses could be brought into court. The district attorney opposed the mo tion, on the grounds that there was no likelihood tbat the absent witnesses would be present at any future time, and the defendant would then be no better off than now. The court denied the motion, and the defense excepted. The box was at once filled with jurors, and tbe work of secur ing a panel was begun. The jurors were asked their opinion with regard to tbe guilt or innocence not only of the prisoner, George Sontag, but of John Sontag and Chris Evans. The talesmen were asked first whether they were acquainted with the detectives em ployed by tbe express company and by the Southern Pacific; then as to wheth er tbey believed tbat Evans and John Sontag robbed tbe train at Rolinda, and whether they believed the killing of Oscar Beaver, Vie Wilson and McGinnis was done by the fugitives, in order that they might escape'from arrest for train robbery be cauße the fugitives were guilty. Tbe question as to whether the fact tbat the prisoner was a brother of John Sontag had any influence on the minds of the talesmen waa asked, and whether George Sontag being in Fresno on tbe day of the robbery and having visited Evans at Visalia two days before, was considered by them in a light unfavora ble to tbe defendant. The prosecution inquired whether any of the talesmen ever resided in Tulare county, or whether they bad any business dealings with Messrs. Caldwell and Goucber, of tbe defense, or whether tbey had any prejudice against the Southern Pacific company because it had refused to pay its taxes to tbe state; also, whether it would require more evidence to convict the defendant of robbing a wealthy corporation than it would to convict him of robbing private individuals. Only one juror was challenged on the ground of bias. The last jurur examined was H. H. Boren. It was elicited through his examination that the Fri day before the robbery he had met George Sontag in the court-house square, this city. They sat on a bench together for two hours and talked. The distript attorney at once asked tbat Boren be summoned as a witness. At" torney Caldwell objected, and the court took the matter under advisement till Saturday morning, tomorrow being a legal holiday. The " court then ad journed. Blame at Republican Headquarters. New York, Oct. 20.—Blame visited Republican headquarters this morning and had a long conference with Joseph Manley aud others. Manley admitted afterwards that it was political, but declined to state what points were touched on. He declared tbat Blame was heartily in favor of tbe ticket, but stated that his health would not permit him to make any speeches. Your fall suit should be made by Gets.

Wasiungton, D. C, Oct. 20 —A change for the woree in the condition of Mra. Harriaon has taken place, and tonight she is weaker than at any previous time since her illness began. She is greatly exhausted and cannot turn her head on the pillow. Her cough is said to have increased in volume. This, coming in paroxysms, has a very depressing and exhausting effect on the patient, and tends to reduce her vitality. Mrs. Harrison passed a comparatively quiet day, and did not suffer so much from nervousness. She experienced more difficulty than usual, however, in taking nourishment, which has hereto fore been taken with systematic regu larity. Although she is in such a very weak state, yet the attending physician said tonight he did not apprehend any im mediate fatal result, and thought it probable that by morning she might rally and regain some of her lost strength. Today was the thirty-ninth anniver sary of the marriage of President and Mrs. Harrison, but the illness of the latter precluded any recognition of the occasion outside of the family circle, and it was marked by extreme sadness. At 10 o'clock Mrs. Harrison rallied somewhat from her severe prostration. Her condition is so precariouß that she may pass away within a few hours, should another sinking spell occur. Washington, Oct. 21—At 3a. m. Mrs, Harrison's condition is unchanged. A RALLY AT LONG BEACH DEMOJKATS TURN OCT EN MASSE AT THE PAVILION. r Able Speeches Delivered by W. A. Ryan, J. Deßarth Shorb and Others. Mr. Dillon Receives an Uvatlon. Special to the Herald. Long Beach, Oct. 20.—The Democrats of Long Beach and the surrounding country turned out this evening to hear tbe candidates on the Democratic coun ty ticket place themselves on record. The tabernacle was crowded to listen to the remarks that were made. Two bands were present to furnish music, and the Ramirez family was also pres ent to give instrumental music. Th platform was artistically draped and festooned with the national colors, and the large building was full of en thusiastic Democratic. M. C. Holman acted as president of | the meeting. The first speaker he in troduced was W. A. Ryan ol Los Ange les. Mr. Ryan did not discuss national issues, but confined himself exclusively to local matters. He assailed the ad ministration of the county government in the bitterest terms, proving each charge that he made with facts and figures. Mr. Ryan's remarks were received by his auditors with favor, and he undoubtedly made numerous Demo cratic votes. He charged the board of supervisors with malfeasance in office, and demonstrated it beyond any ques tion. J. Deßarth Shorb made a masterly speech, and was enthusiastically re ceived. Mr._ Brewer, as our next supervisor, . was given the unqualified support of this district, as was Mr. Cullen, who is sure to be next county clerk, as the old one armed veteran ie a great favorite. Many of Long Beach's fairest dames were present, and they, as was right, took as much interest in the proceedings as the men. At the mention of Mr. Di.lon's name for district attorney, the house fairly came down. Following is the list of vice presi dents: Capt. G. M. Walker, W. 8. Snell, John MpGarvin, J. Andrews, T. L. Duque, I. L. FeUerman, F. L. Dames, Ed Davies, L. A. Bailey, E. A. Bene field. Will T. Swaeney, city treasurer, acted as secretary. WEAVER'S WILD WORDS. He Bays Mr*. Lease Is More Than Human.

While speaking of his southern trip, the general said there had been violence and eggs, but he wanted it understood that Georgia had no monopoly in eggs.

A Republican Appeal for the Hibernian , Vote in New York. New York, Oct. 20 —Under authority of the National Republican committ<M an address was issued tonight by an assembly district Irish Republican club, treating of the attitude of tbe two parties toward the Irish-American vote, and attacking the Democratic parly. The address concludes: "Never since Irishmen rallied around Washington to establish the republic, and again in the defence of the dbion, has the occasion demanded that they should exhibit patriotism more actively, and therefore every 'principle, honor, tradition and gratitude demand that they should stand Dj%Harrison and the policy of the Republican party.

San Francisco, Oct. 20.—Senator Stan ford stated today to a reporter that he had reconsidered his determination to resign from the senate, on account of ill , health, if the next state legislature waa , Republican.
