To lie sure there are numbers of those ad

We can chat a little here, as everybody
dors in private, over the characteristics ot
the seem —possibly hit on a point or two
not already universally spoken of. The
universal praise of the work of the mana
gers, and iis wonderful success, is not more
generous ilian just, ami if I coniine my own
lew words to criticism it is only because
that pan alone is behind hand. The main
fault was in a rigidity rule out of all pro
pin inn to tlie physical force for supporting
it. Where t here was no need of it the rule
was too rigid but where it was most wauled
it proved loo weak. For instance, it was
quire as easy a* unnecessary, to outrage
pa.lent people who had toiled lor hours to
'.lieir:urns at, the lurn stiles, by refusing
inch full and exact payments because not

tedious delay wiih that they had just en
dured, or ,o the alternative of paying a
if twem.y per cent, to the peripa
ic money changers.
It was also easy for the military line be
tween die Main and Machinery Hall, to
ho d that passage agaiii6t the peaceable
folk,of whom some tea thousand had con
fldhiglj paid their half-dollar at the South
cm ranees only to he penned like cattle be
tween l hose hails and the euclosuies, for
two hoi mui mortal hours, while ail they
had ionic to see was going on without
them. A grain of common sense or In
inanity somewhere would have opened i
tcinnorary passage to the general ground
forihcss iinpiisoned people, without caus
ing the slightest difficulty in again closing
and guarding it for the official procession,
but wlii'n the official procession came and
the real need of firmness at that point
bo-an, these stubborn lines were but wisps
°f s raw oelore an exei.ed crowd. The ofli—
via 1 procession was knocked Into a cocked,
h;e or rather out of its cocked bats, and bs
triumphant march wus turned into a melee
ami a rout.
Again, the most properly privileged and
riant personages were stupidly tbiUBt
hack and battled of tliclr rignis and digni
ties, because It was physically easy for a
bayoneted lout to cope with gentlemen, one
m a lime; while t housands of wilful usurp
fr* forced their way where they had no
business to lie.
The two seas of humanity that pressed
towards meeting, on either side of the cer
unoLial stand, were each restrained by a
rnpa that bulged and bent, farther and far
ther, like a dam yielding to a mightily
gravitating mass of water, and but for a
timely but accidental re-inforcemcnt from
tlie President's body-guard, the feeble force
at that critical point would have been over
whelmed, with tlie whole official body and
paraphernalia, like Pliaroli's host in tlie
Bed Sea. And this lucky success, too, was
only gained by cruel violence, which would
nor have become necessary if the strength
expanded in tyrauh.ing over harmless peo
ple wlio had been massed betimes in firm
'ifficl inertia where the pressure of excited
crowds required it.
