That the .firemen of the city will
participate in the parade was assayed
last night, when a committee from the
various companies- conferred with the
, joint Hallowe'en committee, and set
forth their grievance because they had
not been given the right of line. They
thought they had not been shown
jper consideration. Josiuh Marvel,
chairman, informed the firemen
t General J. Furko. Postles, the
, grand marshal, had given the firemen
■I, considérât ion in the selection of hia
aides. He asked William Ward, the
cjhief of the Fire Department, to serve
'
/
as aide and to take charge of the fire
' -men's division. Cb ief Ward told Gen
eral Postles that to, as fire chief,
would prefer to In; with the firemen
and being there lu- wanted to ride in
the carriage of the chief
General Postles then selected Chief
Ward's brother. George B. Ward, as
, one of his aides. George B. Ward is
a representative, fireman, and General
- postles believed he had complied with
all rceu remeuts of the firemen by tak-
ing this action.
- This explanation placated the fiie
men's committee, who said they did
not know seme of the facts brought
out. They w-Vre satisfied with such
•ft' conditions, and they then agreed to
take part in the parade and do all
they could to m ake it a success.
Never has a public occasion aroused
so much interest as the "home coming

Ho said he Intended to refer to the

"I went to the meeting at tho Har

among the places told me was tho Har

then asked to be directed to the church.
I was told to get on a car there and
It would take me right to the church.

that the meetings were much disturbed

and she hoped that all would remain.
If I had had any Inclination to leave,
this would have dispelled it. Finally
Mr. Raymond launched Into his re

though ho said this individual was a

shortly afterward.
"When I realized there would be no
