At the stroke of the hour. "Black

Precision. This was a signal that
SalyanlEed the entiling crowds into
action, and a shout went up that
crowned the strains of a quickstep
T?n!ch the divisional band had struck.
'Horse Becomes XJaraly.
Grim and erect, Pershing gazed
Tixedly ahead as he rode, seemingly
-anconsclous of the personal tributes
showered upon him. His mount,
frightened by the noise, became un
ruly, but the general reined it into
quick submission.
Behind the general rode two non
cems, one bearing the Stars and
Stripes, the other Pershing's four
starred pennant. Then came his staff,
followed by the famous "composite
regiment representing practally
every unit in the Jl. E. F.whicJP par
ticipated in the lionden and Paris
Victory parades."
More than 1,000 wounded men of
the First, borne in automobiles, were
next in line. They were showered
with flowers, cigarettes, and candies.
There followed rank after rank of
infantry, artillery and machine gun
ners, supply and hospital trains and

, The doughboys,,their backs bent
under 60-pound packs, with bayonets
fixed and shrapnel helmets pulled
forward at a business-like angle,
plodded along at the semi-shuffling
gait that had been acquired by long
ssenths of hiking in the miyi and
ruck of France. It was not so showy
as a parsBe ground step, but it had
. realistic air that gripped the.
crowds as nothing else could. Near
Forty-second street several hundred
wounded of other divisions, still un

were grouped.
At -the end of each hour the division

When Pershing reached Forty-second
street, hundreds of wounded sol

there struggled to their feet and
sainted their commander-in-chief.
Many were crippled, but still imbued
with the spirit that had conquered
the flower of the Prussian army.
Many legless among them were lifted
from-their seats by marines to give
the salute. It was a spectacle that
brought .tears to the eyes of many.
By the time "Pershing bad reached
the "yictory Arch" practically all the
men in line were wearing flowers

were literally marching on a carpet
of blossoms.
When Pershing passed St. Patrick's
Cathedral, at Fiftieth street and Fifth

Merder, the Belgian primate, who
was viewing the parade from the

tion, called a conference of leading
business men today to formulate plans
for ending the strike.
The night began. with a ringing of
false alarms and the breaking of store
windows by gangs of small boys. It
rapidly developed Into organized
hoodlumism, which resulted in a
score, of near riots, numerous as
saults and criminal attacks on women.
Flee From Clubs.
The most serious rici In the city
proper took place in the west end,
where the,' mpb,. constantly swelling;
until it numbered over 5,000 howling
boys and' men, refused to budgo'when
charged by the inspectors. Finally, a
big squad of metropolitan park po-j
lice, clubs in hand, appeared suddenly
and waded into the front ranks. Then
the mob, which meantime had looted
a dozen small stores, turned and fled,
many of them shouting for mercy.
The loot they had grabbed through
the broken -plate glass windows was
dropped in their flight and littered
Scollay square. In two minutes the
metropolitan park police had cleared
the square, but a few minutes later
the park policemen vanished as sud
denly as they had appeared, and the
hoodlums again formed into- a gang.

Craps games were openly played, in

a gathering of several hundred
engaged in the game or watch

bowed his way through the throng and

Commuters Engage Attorney to
Fight Electric Line Fare
ALEXANDRIA. Va., SepL 10. At
torney Charles Henry Smith has been
retained by the executive committee
of the Mt.Vcrnon"DivisIon Commuters'
Association to appear before the In
terstate Commerce Commission in op
position to proposed increased in
freight and passenger rates on the
Washington-Virginia railway. Mr.
Smith will co-operate with Major B.
"V. R. Kwing and Frank Lyon, 'who
are attorneys for the patrons of the
Fairfax and Falls Church division.
Copies of a protest whicli will be pre
sented at the hearing before the In
terstate Commerce Commission on
September 19 have been placed in the
principal stores of this city, including
all of the drug stores, and the com
mittee urges every one interested to
rail at one of these stores and sign
the protest.
R. K. Lee Post, American Legion,
met last night at the 'War Camp Com
munity Service Club to elect perma
nent officers, but postponed the elec
tion until the second Tuesday in Oc
tober. The annual election of officers of
Fitzgerald, Council, No. 459. Knight
ef .Cvlumbus, will be held at the regu
lar monthly meeting of that ornaniza-
I tion in Lyceum Hall tonight. .
The greatest train movement in the
history of American railroads will be
seen in the transporting of the First
division from New York to Wash
ington, and the hauling of visitors
to this city to witness General Per
shing's triumphal march along Penn
sylvania avenue next Wednesday.
So heavily will the railways, be
taxed that for a week Washington
practically will be isolated in. the
bringing in of freight. Should a
shortage of any of the necessities of
life exist in this city today there
would be complete exhaustion- of the
article and no chance for relief, until,
after the parade next wek. Whether
profiteers will seize this unprece
dented condition m an excuse to
boost prices remains to be seen.
No Freight Embargo.
While no embargo has been de
clared on the carrying "of freight the
railroad administration has request
ed all shippers to hold up their con
signments during the next week as
much as possible to relieve an inevit
able congestion.
There is every llgeiihood that from
tomorrow on, when tho movement of
troops starts, all freight consigned
to Washinctdn will be held ud. Thit
will be the case until afteA tho pa
rade. Railway officials do not sec
how they can possibly handle one
pound of freight other than that
directly connected with the review.
Heavier Than During IaaugnraJs.
Traffic on the railways will bb far
heavier than during inaugural
periods. While, perhaps, fewer pas
sengers will be carried, the moving
of the enormous equipment of the
First division will be a task far
greater, than the taking care of
The freight movement of the First
division atone will require 1,041 cars.
This number does not include the 10,
000 soldiers who must be carried in
the passenger movement of trains.
In addition to this the Railroad Ad
ministration is preparing to haul not
less than 30,000 visitors to Washing
ton. Add to this situation the carry
ing of an estimated 100,000 pcresons
who will travel to Baltimore on the
same day to sec the mammoth parade
of the Odd Fellows, ' and the result
is a condition which railway officials
believe approaches the impossible.
B. and O. Yards Busy.
The Baltimore, and Ohio freight
yards at Florida avenue and IScking
ton place northeast are making pro
vision to handle 580 cars of freight
and the storing of fourteen passenger
trains. There was a bustle in the
yards today by merchants "removing
as much of their freight as they
could before the. troops arrive. It
was stated that tomorrow it might
become necessary to remove partly
unloaded cars to make room for the
first of the First division's equip
ment, which will begin arriving to
morrow night.
Workmen are busy putting down
special mains to carry water to the
troops. Long linos of special plat
forms are being built to accommodate
the unloading of tanks and guns.
There is a similar nctivlty In the
Pennsylvania yards- at Four-and-a-half
street and Virginia avenue south
west. These yards are preparing to
care for as many cars as the Balti
more and Ohio sidings.

.Yes, it is not.
The reverend German gentleman
who preached before the Kaiser
during the war says that toward
the end the Kaiser was dally ex
pecting a miracle to end the war
his way. He certainly needed the
miracle; better still, several of
them. As usual, miracles were
with intelligence, the best .supplies
of men and weapons and especially
on the side of the right. There
is no doubt that the former Kaiser
wonders now why the miracle did
not come.
Many a -religious fanatic has
known that wonder and has died
reproaching his Maker for not
doing His pajt Wherever his-
tory is authentic, laws apjjcar to
govern and miracles can be fore
see'irwell in advance. The decid
ing miracle was in Foch's. brain
and in the fact that France, Eng
land, Italy and tho United' States
combined '.possessed more intelli
gence than Germany, yAustria,
Turkey and Bulgaria. Intelligence
has never lost a war.
PARIS. Sept. 10. The supreme
council of the peace conference ar
ranged with the Bulgarian delegates
today for formal presentation of the
Bulgarian treaty at the French for
eign office Friday. '
This -action waa taken after the
Bulgarians had protested against the
presentation of the treaty without
any ceremony.
Col. B. M. House will return to
Paris from Iondon Sunday to resume
his duties ut the peace conference.
Advices to the State Department in
Washington from Paris yesterday
said the treaty had been signed. This
was obviously an error in dispatches.
James S. Wilton, charged with
grand larceny, was arraigned before
Judge McMahon in United States court
today. He was held for the action of
the grand Jury, bail being fixed at
"Mary, 111 stay "with you." That
was the fine last utterance of a
young American husband whose
wife was held fast in a railroad
switch. The husband could not
free her, so he stayed holding her
in his arms and the locomotive
killed them both. A monument to
that man would be as well de
served as one to Pershing, if it is
not blasphemy to say so.
You ask, "Did such'V man die
for naught? "Will no good come
of it?" Yes, good will come. In
the long run every noble example
lifts the race up a little. And com
monplace good may come at once.
Had the unhappy wife -worn a
low broad heel, her foot would
probably not have caught in the
switch. She and her husband
would be living now.
Few women walk on railroad
switches. Millions of them hurt
their spines, their interiors and
their nervous systems with high
heels that throw them out of
plumb. But the railroad accident,
unusual, will do more to check
high heer foolishness than many
lectures on anatomy.
