THE DAVIS OBSEQUIES.
last Tay of the Body's Ly
ing in State.
MAGNIFICENT FLORAL EMBLEMS.
Seventy Thousand People View the
Remains—The Funeral Pag
eant today.
i Associated Press Dispatches to tho |
New Oeleans, December 10.—Owing
o the tact tbat it was virtually the last
day upon which Mr. Davie' remains
could be viewed, people crowded to tbe
City Hall. The march by the bior was
rapid and orderly, and full seventy
thousand people trod the corridors of the
hall during tho day. Goneral Early,
Governor Lubbock, of Texas; Bishop
Wilmer, of Alabama; General Young,
ex-Minister ot Russia; ex-Governor
Mumford of Virginia, and George Jones,
of lowa, were among the distinguished
visitors. School children, not only
decorated the schools but came to show
their respects to the dead. The city is
decorated on a grander scale than ever
before in its history. The funeral to
morrow will virtually pass through solid
walls of black, for there is scarcely a
house on the route that is not draped.
Pictures and paintings of the deceased
are everywhere displayed. The Ameri
can flag is at half mast over the City
Hall and other prominent buildings. A
few Confederate flags are shown. One is
across the coffin. Among the magnifi
cent floral offerings is a ten-foot cross
with a wreath of smilax and camelias, in
the center of which nestles a dove hold
ing streamers of ribbon, upon which
appears the inscription : "The Sympathy
and Love of the Confederate Association
of Missouri." Tbe bane is of wheat and
ferns, npon which two doves Beam to
have alighted and caught the ends of
the streamers. This is one offering of
many.
There will be seven Governors of
Southern States here tomorrow, besides
ex-Governor McEnery.of this State, and
others. Business will be entirely sus
pended and almost every society in the
city will turn out. Dispatches from all
parts indicate that memorial services
will be held in almost every city, town
and village in Mississippi and Louisiana,
and very generally throughout the
South.
The funeral will he the largest ever
seen in the South. Every benevolent
organization in the city, military schools,
athletic clabs, commercial bodies, ship
masters, fire department and clergy will
be largely represented. The route will
be four miles long. The funeral cere
monies will be conducted in front of the
City Hall by Bishops Galleher, of Louis
iana, and Wilmer, of Alabama, and five
clergymen of various denominations. At
the grave the ceremonies will be con
ducted by Bishops Galleher and Hugh
Miller Thompson, of Mississippi. Minute
guns will be tired all day, and at the
grave there will be guns and bugla calls,
as becomes a military funeral. Visiting
military organizations will come from
Mississippi, Alabama, Texas and the
country parishes of Louisiana.
St. Louis, December 10.—The Cottoa
Exchange of this city has decided to
close tomorrow, on account of the funeral
of Jefferson Davis. Resolutions of eulogy
and sympathy have been adopted by the
members of the exchange, in wh'c'i
Davis is referred to as a man tried in
many high offices and found faithful in
all; tested in many critical junctures and
proved true to his country and his peo
ple; a statesman of the very highest
order; a man of the purest character,
tenacious of principles, the slave of con
science and duty.
Denver, December 10. —An ex-Oinfed
erate soldiers' meeting was held here
today for the purpose of taking action
deemed appropriate to the death of Jef
ferson Davie. Resolutions of condolonce
were adopted, which were wired to Mrs.
Davis at New Orleans.
Richmond, Va., December 10.—The
Legislature today passed a joint resolu
tion requesting Mrs. Jefferson Davis to
allow the remains of her husband to be
interred in this city.
THE EVOLUTION,
A misled Craft train Wlilcn
Much Is Expected.
New Yobk, December 10. —A remark;
able craft will be launched tomorrow
from the shipyards of James Lennox.
Its designer and patentee, Dr. W. M.
Jackson, has named it the Evolution.
The boat is built on a new plan, no
knees or frames being used in its con
struction, and with the exception of two
or three deck beams the hull is free from
obstruction. She is 108 feot over all, 23
feet beam, and G}.< feet deep from the
under side of the deck to the bottom
planking. Owing to the tremendous
spread the hull takes from the keel, it is
claimed that she will draw less than four
feet of water. The boat is to be run by
hydraulic power by forcing water
at a great pressure through thre->
quarter inch pises at the stem or stem,
according to tbe desired motion,
forward or backward. The ends of theEe
pipes are covered with movable collars,
which can be turned in any direction de
sired, being controlled by levers in the
pilot bouse, and by this means the ves
sel is steered. Her boiler contains
nearly four and one-half miles of stee,
pipe, every inch of which is exposed to
fire. With this great heating surface the
pressure obtained forces the water,
which ie pumped in by another engino,
out of the three-quarter-inch pipes at the
rate of about 600 feet per second. The
outside surface of the vessel is of pol
ished m hogany, and will offer slight re
sistance to the water. From the speed
made by a small launch equipped on tbe
same principle, it ie confidently expected
that the Evolution will be able to run at
least twenty-five miles an hour, and
possibly faster.
