A BLAZE OF GLORY.
The Myriads of Deaiocrati( Torch-Bearers. A GREAT DAY FOR GOTHAM. The Two Opposing Parties Vie in Displaying Their Patriotic Enthusiasm. I Issociated Press Dispatches to the Herald. New Yobk, November 3.—The Demo cratic uarade to-night started an hour later than scheduled. The crowds were immense; the sight of tens of thousands of men, all bearing torches or lanterns, baflles description. The paraders were fantastically decorated and bedec'ted with flags and bandanas in every con ceivable way. They moved along twelve abreast, but were frequently blocked by the crushing crowd whom the police seemed powerless to handle. Every where could be heard the question, "What's the matter with Grover?" with the regular answer, "He's all right." Another refrain they seemed to enjoy was, "Ben, Ben, he'll never see the White House till the robbins nest again." Behind the dry goods men came tbe wholesale cloak manufacturers, who pro claimed their sentiments thus: "Free raw material will give us the world for a market.'! "Where's Sackville-West?" wasa con stant query, which called forth the state ment, "He's in the soup." Among the clubs were the Wholesale Dry Goods Porters and Truckmen, Stock Exchange Club, Railroad Club, West Side Business Men, Wholesale Jewelers, Insurance Men, Custom House Brokers, Wholesale Druggists, Boot and Shoe Men, Young Men's Independent Club, Ele vated Railway Employees, Produce and Maritime Exchanges, Coffee and Cotton Exchange, Real Estate and Insurance Agents, and a vast number of political marching clubs. While the' procession was passing Twenty-eighth street and Fifth avenue, a well dressed unknown man dropped to the sidewalk dead. His body was taken to tbe station-house. A PICTURESQUE SCENE. When Governor Hill and the members of the Reception Committee arrived at the grand stand, it was 8:30 o'clock, and for an hour previous the streets had been packed with people. So dense wag tbe mass that 400 policemen had difficulty in keeping the road clear for the procession to pass by the review ing stand. The scene witnessed by those fortunate enough to secure seats on the principal stands was picturesque in the extreme, and the array of torches borne by the thousands of paraders had the appearance of a gigantic flame as the bearers neared Madison Square. Several companies of mounted men made a splendid appearance. The well-known figure of Joseph J. O'Donohue, at the head of the Downtown Business Men's Cleveland and Thurman Association, was greeted with three cheers and a tiger from the vicinity of the Governor's box. It took nearly four hours for the proces sion to pass the grand stand. Estimates of the number in the procession range from 50,000 to 75,000. EXCITEMENT AT REPUBLICAN HEADQUAR TERS. At Republican headquarters up to midnight was most exciting. Fifty police were kept busy clearing tbe crowds from the vicinity. The officers had all they could do to quiet the disturbances which occurred between the representatives of the different political beliefs. All the Democratic organizations of Brooklyn, numbering 25,000, made the final demonstration this evening by a grand parade through the principal thoroughfares. REPUBLICAN DEMONSTRATION. Business Men ana Wall Street Mil lionaires' Parade. New York, November 3.—Broadway was thronged with people this afternoon to witness the start of the Republican parade of business men. The weather was much the same as that of last Satur day when the Democratic business men paraded. Rain came pouring down steadily from out of the leaden sky, but this did not seem in any way to dampen the ardor of the paraders. Promptly at 1 o'clock the procession moved with Grand Marshal Mitchell at the head. The American flag was omni- S resent in the ranks of tbe paraders, on uilding and in windows along tbe route of tbe procession. Multitudes of people thronged the route. Crowds of sight seers stood on roofs, in windows and in doorways and cheered the different organizations as they passed, and the paraders frequently joined in. Immedi ately behind the Marshal came a string of twelve horses in a double line draw ing a truck bearing the model of a steamship. The vessel was intended tv represent the Dolphin, which was at first declared to be unacceptable to tbe Gov ernment, but is now considered one of the best vessels in the navy for coast de fense. Alongside the model were sev enty-five men in seamen's uniforms. They came from the docks of Ward's line of Havana steamships, and carried a banner inscribed, "The Democrats killed John Roach, bnt his spirit goes marching on." One of the most striking and unique features of the parade was the appearance presented by the Americus.Club of Pitts burg. There were 275 men in line. The men wore Tweed suits and white hats and each carried an umbrella, around the outside of which were stars, while the ribs were alternately red, white and bine, thus making a national flag. They wheeled out of Liberty street to take their place in the parade behind tbe Philadelphia clubs. They were precedi d by a standard inscribed "Pennsylvania is at your back." WALL-STREET MILLIONAIRES CHEERED. When the Wall-street business men swung into Broadway from that street, headed by the Seventh Begiment Band, there was a big shout from the crowd that lined either side of the street. First came the Coffee Exchange, followed by the Tobacco men. Every man of the latter bad a leaf of the tobacco plant suspended to the lapel of his coat, or a mammoth plug suspended from his neck.. The Brokers' Club was one of the features of the parade. Each man carried a cane, to which was attached a small American flag. Then came the members of the Consolidated Exchange; the other associations filing into Broadway from Wall Btreet being the Produce and Maritime Exchange, Custom House Brokers, Cotton Ex change, A. R. Whitney, Bowling? Green, Harrison and Morton Workingmen's Protective Association and Coal Trade. Then followed the various trades societies and organizations. Above Chambers street beggars de scription. Crowds obstructed the side- Walks, and the windows of the tall build* THE LOS ANGEUES DAILY HERALD; SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 4. 188& ings on bath sides of Broadway were filled with spectators. In Chambers street for many blocks above the march ing clubs waited for over two hours after the head cf the procession had passed them before their right was un covered by the organizations starting further down town. In fact, the extreme left of tbe line was not in motion un'il after 5, • BLENDED INSIGNIA. ! The greatest enthusiasm prevailed all along the line. Here and there on the buildings among the display of stars and stripes and Republican insignia, were occasional Democratic decorations of bandanas, papers bearing Chinese char acters and pictures of President Cleve land. The paraders flaunted their little American flags and hissed the bandanas and groaned at the portraits of tbe Dem ocratic candidates. The headquarters of the Republican National Committee was completely decorated, and a banner bearing the portraits of the candidates waved over the cheering thousands. Mr. Warner Miller, Hon. Levi P. Morton, Colonel Kruger and General John C. Fremont reviewed the parade from the stand at Worth monument, Madison square. Hon. Jas. G. Blame watched the pageant from one of the windows of the Fifth Avenue Hotel, and afterwards expressed regret that he had been unable to get to the reviewing stand. It is esti mated tbat at least fifty thousand men participated in the parade. While ap proaching the stand Broker William J. Osborne, one of the paraders, dropped dead and was borne away. Shortly above the reviewing stand the parade was disbanded. BLATANT BLAINfi. Ills Latest Batch of Sophistry and DemacoKlc Vapor I una. New York, November 3. —The Repub lican campaign in Brooklyn closed to night at Clermont avenue rink with a speech by Hon. James &. Blame, under the auspices of the organization of Irish Protectionists. The structure has a capacity to accommodate 5,000 people, and they were there to-night and more, too. Hundreds were unable to gain ad mittance. Judge Rooney presided and essayed a speech, which was cut short by shouts for Mr. Blame, who advanced and spoke substantially as follows: I did not come here to-night to make a lengthy speech, but briefly to sum up the case. Are you in favor of a protective tariff? [Cries of "Yes, yes."] Then vote for Harrison. [Cries of "We will."] Are you in favor of paying pensions to deserving soldiers? [Cries of "Yes." Then vote for Harrison. [Cries of "We will vote for him."] Are you against the President using the veto as if he were a voter in the Senate or House of Representatives? [Cries of "We are."] Then vote against Cleveland, [Cries of "We will."] Are you in favor of a thorough American system through and through ? [Cries of "We are."] Then vote for Harrison. Aie you in favor of using the surplus in the Treasury of the United States to pay the public debt? [Shouts of "Yes."] Then vote for Harrison. . ["Yes we will."] Are you against taking $60,000, --000 out of the public Treasury and loan ing it to favorites without interest? [Cries of "No."] Well, I have something more to say on that point, for I have learned some thing since I last spoke on it. Not only have they taken sixty millions of dollars and loaned it to pet bouses in the United States, but they have done it through the agency of banks established by Mr. Jor dan and by the late Mr. Manning. They have made them sort of a Government bureau. They gave them $1,100,000 as a fixed balance to call their own, and then they have allowed them to peddle out this $60,000,000 to other banks and by that means tried to get a large number of banks throughout the country to give them their entire business, and I say here that Louis XIV, or Peter the Great of Russia, or Napoleon at his most ab solute period would never have dared to treat the treasury of their respective countries in that way—never. And I wonder that it has not made a more pro found sensation in this country. They have said, such papers as the New York Times and Evening Post, that Secretary Sherman did tbe same. Well, I have been denying that a good while, and this morning I read a speech from Secretary Sherman himself, and he explained exactly tbe difference. Whbn Secretary Sherman made that marvelous loan of 4 per cents in 1879, they were sold through the banks and paid for at the banks' counters. Tbe money was merely in transit between those who paid for fours, and the man who got his pay for the surrendered fives and sixes. But these men have taken the money in the Treasury, and against every provision of the law, have dipped their hands in up to the elbows and helped their friends. The most corrupt thing you can conceive of is to take money out of the Government and give it to the banks, who can use it and use their in fluence for the party in power. I saw to my regret in a paper tbe accu sation made that the extradition treaty had been injuriously amended by the Republican Committee and reported to tbe Senate by a Republican. I state positively, and state cf my own knowl edge, that there is not one particle of foundation for that allegation, and that like the fishery treaty which surrendered our rights in the fisheries, this extradi tion treaty is supported by Democratic Senators, and by them alcne. Referring to the Republican parade which he witnessed to-day, Mr. Blame said : It was the most mighty political procession that ever trod the streets of New York, and compared with that which the President of the United States can.c here last week to review, why that was a picket guard merely to the Republican army, and, gentlemen, that procession is prophetic. It means that the people of New York are aroused, not on old party lines, not the old fash ioned fight between Democrats and Re publicans, bnt a fight between the pro tionist and anti-protectionist; a fight b 'ween protection and free trade. Aterthe meeting Blame was driven oi nass-meeting in the Grand Army l alli the Eastern District of Brooklyn, wbi reh made a short speech, saying in part: We must stand together in the election. This Union carries the flag of the Union instead of the dirty bandana; for without any disrespect to the candi date for Vice-President, I think one of the most extraordinary campaign badges is a pocket handkerchief that a snuff taker uses in his extremity. Yes, I prefer the banner of the United States, which wss borne up tbe great avenue of New York by 60,000 people, and under that flag ana under the flag of protection we shall win a victory on-Tuesday next. After this speech Mr. Blame was con ducted to the skating rinks on the out skirts of the city. His fatigue was ap parent, and he spoke but a few mo ments. _________ After all the talk and bluster on the subject, the United States Senate did not have the courage to come to a vote on the tariff bill. Was the charge true that the bill was purely and only for cam paign purposes? — [Baltimore Herald, PACIFIC COAST. Democracy Triumphant at Pomona. A GRAND DEMOCRATIC RALLY. Republican Ardor Somewhat Cooled in 'Frisco—A Donble Stage Robbery. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Bebald I [Special to the Herald. 1 Pomona, Cal., November 3.—Demo cracy is triumphant in Pomona, notwith standing the fact that the cowardly leaders of the Republican party have persuaded the Pomona band, which is largely Republican, to break their en gagement with the Democrats and go to Los Angeles on an excursion consisting of thirteen Pomona letter-fraud disciples of one fool Murchison , and one colored boy, the Democrats had one of the most enthusiastic meetings of the campaign. Col. Harris, of Pasadena, in a thirty mmute speech captured the workingmen completely. Major Mcßory, late of New York, in a neat address aroused the sympathies of all present in favor of the great and good Grover Cleveland. Major Arbuckle came late, but not least, with one of his able, unanswerable speeches. He aroused the large audience to a pitch of enthusiasm which fairly shook the Grand Opera House, which was filled to overflowing. At the close of his speech the people, who were al most unwilling to leave, and many who had been Republicans, announced them selves for Cleveland and Thurman and tariff reform. ENTHUSIASM OECKEABED. The' Frisco Republican's Final Pa rade Not as Their First. Sax Francisco, November 3.—The Re publican parade this evening was the closing demonstration of tbe campaign in this city, and every effort was made to make it an affair equal to any similar event ever held on the Coast. Crowds began to gather on the streets long before it started and by 8 o'clock Montgomery) Kearney and the blocks on Market street were densely packed. A great number of houses along the line of march were gaily decorated, and brilliant illumina tions were to be seen everywhere. Gov ernor Waterman witnessed the pro cession from the balcony of the Occidental Hotel. In point of numbers the parade was probably equal to any held during the campaign, and the total number of men in line is variously estimated at from 10,000 to 15,000. There was a half-hour's delay in start ing, but very few halts were made after wards, and the different divisions fell into line promptly and moved along the streets as rapidly as their crowded condition would permit. Temporary stands had been erected at close inter vals, upon which red and green lights burned continually, which, with fire wagons and thousands of torches and other lights in the procession, gave an appearance of more than usual attract- I iveness. One of the principal features of the parade was the large number of uni formed clubs, not only from this city but from almost every large town or city within a radius of fifty miles. The industrial parade was probably not equal to the first Republican parade held here in September. Hundreds of employees of various business houses in the city and large representations of al most ever trade and branch of industry in the State were to be seen in line, but there was no attempt to display so many large truck and heavy floats as on the former occasion. There were eighteen divisions in the procession and a band preceded each. The Grand Marshal and his caval cade of aids occupied the front of the line, escorted by army and navy veterans and tbe Republican Alli ance of Oakland. The State Central Commistee and County Committee ap peared on foot at the head of the column, and with them marched W. W. Morrow and a number of other prominent Re publicans. Tbe industrial representa tions and uniformed clubs were distrib uted among the different divisions. The fine appearance of many of tbe marching organizations, together with the various movements they performed with much precision, called forth much applause from the spectators. DOUBLE STAKE HOBBEBI, Tlie Old Uang In Santa Barbara County AKaln Active. Santa Barbara, November 3. —To-day at 12:30 o'clock the two stages running between Los Olivos and Santa Barbara were robbed three miles this side of Home Station.

Wells, Fargo & Co.'s express box was opened, containing two sealed envelopes, each containing canceled checks from San Luis Obispo to Los Angeles. Both letters were opened and contents not disturbed.
