Private cables are going to Liverpool

telegraph wires were bringing news of ad

prominent local cotton firms were bear

suspicions of operators and caused a

The action of the directors in ordering

New York, Sept. 29.—Long before sun

washing down the decks and preparing
the flagship for the most magnificent na
jVal demonstration that lias ever taken
place in an American port,
Like activity was in progress on the
other sea fighters riding at anchor below
the Olympia. The scene was a glorious
one as the sun's rays glistened on the
white sides of the larger vessels and the
black hulls of the small ones.
Members of the Olympia's crew fear
ing to disturb the slumber of their com
mander, moved quietly about the ship
and the "anchor watch" was set in si
j lence. The marines paced their posts

ficers and men from the ships to the na

When "at colors," was sounded tiie
shore of Staten Island and the liills back
of it were black with people and they
cheered heartily as the flags were raised.
Shortly after 8 o'clock the auxiliary
cruiser Scorpion arrirved and gave the
admiral's salute of seventeen guns.
Dewey made his appearance on the
Olympia shortly after 8 o'clock in un
dress uniform. Quite a number of ves
sels of various kinds were already lying
beside the flagship and he received
warm greeting. A1 yachts at anchorage
grounds were decorated "with flags and
bunting, ready for the parade. All met

squadron is decorated with flags.
This morning 600 men of the Fifth Ohio
arrived over the Jersey Central under
command of Col. Zimmerman.
Two floats "Peace" and "Victory" were
anchored off Grant's tomb shortly after
7 o'clock this morning.
Tiie big steamers and tiie Sandy Hook
carrying the mayor and cummittee which
was selected to board the Olympia and
formally welcome Dewey in the name of
the city of New York and with upwards
of a thousand distinguisheed guests and

! ter 10 o'clock to make a visit to the
starboard aft gangway. Admiral Dewey
The police boat Patrol followed her as an
escort. The Sandy Hook arrived along
side the Olympia at 10:45.
As soon as Captain Lamberton sighted
the Sandy Hook he gave word to the of
fleers of the day and a blast summoned
the marine guard aft. The men lined up
to the port side of the deck while Captain
Lamberton took up a position on the

Mayor Van Wyck was the first to
mount the stairway. Dewey was station
ed a few feet aft of the gangway when
the mayor stepped on deck. Van Wyck
and Dewey shook hands warmly and the
party retired to the cabin. They return
ed to the deck within a few minutes and
it was seen Dewey wore a medal on his
breast that had not been there ten min
utes previous.
Later the entire party, including Ad
rniral Dewey, went over to the Sandy
Hook. As soon as the admiral boarded
the steamer he was taken in hand by the
reception committee. All guests were
presented to Dewey and Flag Lieutenant
Brumby. This visit lasted fully an hour.
The mayor stepped on board the Olym
pia's deck at precisely II o'clock.
The steamer Monmouth, flying the state
flag, left the foot of Rector street shortly
after 11 o'clock. On board were Gover

and representatives of the naval militia
of New York.
At 11:15 the City of Lawrence, with 250
Chicagoans and a like number of citizens
from Hartford, Conn., left her dock.
At 1 o'clock sharp tiie squadron got
under way. It was an inspiring moment,
as tlie column started up the harbor and
the great naval parade begun to be a
reality. First came the police boat "Pa-j
trol," which was the apex of a wedge ;
spreading out to the fire boats, New !
Yorker and Van Wyck, which followed
abreast. The steamer Sandy Hook, hav- J
ing on board the mayor and tiie represen
tatives of the city of New York with I
standards of tiie city flying fore and aft,
steamed alongside the Olympia. j
After the Olympia came the armored j
cruiser New York, the flagship of Rear '
Admiral Sampson, with her big turrets j
and guns appearing like a moving fort
ress as she followed in the wake of the
admiral's ship. The Chicago brought up
the rear of the column. Following tiie
New York were tlie first class battleships
Indiana and Massachusetts. In the rear
of these modern engines of war came
the Lancaster, the type of old navy ves
sels of the Hartford class. Then fed
lowed the gun boat Marietta, small in
comparison with the Lancaster, with the
auxiliary cruiser Scorpion behind,
Abreast steamed the torpedo boats Por

The third and last division of the pa
rade consisted of more than 100 hand

craft, etc. There were sidewheelrs.
propellers, electric boats and every kind
except sailing vessels.
It was about 12:42 when the cruiser
New York hoisted the signal for readi
ness. There was a sudden tooting of
brassy bugles and excitement and bust!?
on all the big war vess Is. The crowd
was alert. The police boat Patrol, with
standards set and signal flying, tired a
gun. The New York broke out the sig
nal to up anchor. There was a rattle of
chains and banging about of the metallic
Promptly at 1 o'clock every vessel
started to turn about as most of them
had their prows pointed down the har- j
bor. Crowds sent up cheer after cheer, j
as the Olympia slowly moved around.
The parade was off the Battery at 1:43
and crowds assembled there) cheered
time and again as the warships passed.
From tIlls point all the way up the river
until Grant's tomb was reached there
was a succession of scenes of enthusi
asm rarely if ever equalled in this or any
other city.
The roof of every building command
ing a view of the river was crowded with
people who literally went wild cheering
the admiral. From the roof of apprais
er's stores a massive kite was flown and |
from it there fluttered high up in the air j

Thomas Lipton's steam yacht Erin was
much applauded.
When the parade reached a point op
posite Hoboken a welcome to the Ad
miral was fired from a cannon on Greeny
Hudson park. The crowds on the Jersey
shores were fully as large as those on the
New York side of the river.
The crowd waiting at Grant's tomb |
was the largest ever gathered there. The
officer in charge of the Grant mausoleum
said 13,000 persons as nearly as he could

houses near River Park and windows
were crowded. From all these people
and hundreds of thousands in the park
came shouts of welcome and cheers for
the admiral as tlie Olympia passsed by.
The scene was inspiring all along.
Mount Tom used to be the site of an old
fort and had seven or eight thousand
persons on it. Riverside drive was lined
on both sides with an unbroken string of
carriages. Grandstands were filled and

Howison's Explanation.
New York, Sept. 29.—The cruiser Chi
cago will be the last of the big warships
in the parade today. This, Rear Admiral
Howison explained, was the second place
of honor,
'T see that quite a gush is being made
in some quarters over the position of the
Chicago in the parade and the fact that
my ship will not follow immediately after
the Olympia and before the New York
is thought to be significant of trouble of
some kind," said he. "This is altogether
wrong and the supposition grew out of
ignorance of naval etiquette and man
ners. There is not the slightest friction
anywhere. Admiral Dewey, Rear Admi
rai Sampson and myself are anxious to
see everything go smoothly and happily
and everybody have a good time. To this
end, we will do all we can.
"No question of procedure has arisen
and it would be impossible for such a
question to arise in the navy. It is all
foreseen and provided for by the rules
which none may disobey. The position of
each cruiser and battleship will be taken
in accordance with these rules, which is
to say that they will proceed up the
river in the order in which we are now
| anchored as each vcsse , actually occupies
its proper place. I dropped into my
proper place in the rear of the line as
soon as 1 entered port. In column ahead
the leading ship has the place of honor.
The second place of honor is the rear,
thus if we were to go in line abreast, the
Olympia would be on the right and the
j Ohicago on the left of the line. My pres
I rut position at the rear of the North At
jlantic squadron would be the head of
| the second squadron if any more ships
i were here.
I "You see, it is very easy to explain and
to understand. The fact that Rear Ad
miral Sampson bad to lower his blue flag
with two stars and hoist bis red flag
with two stars when i arrived does not
amount to a row of pins. It is a mere
matter of etiquette and nothing more.
Rear Admiral Sampson, for instance,
ranks with Rear Admiral Philip. If he j
were to go to the navy yard, he would fly ;
the blue fias
blue flag and hoist the red one.
and Philip would lower his j
te i ... «a I
' '
also to go to the navy yard. Admiral
Sampson would immediately change bis
blue for a red flag and Philip would
change his red flag for a white one, us
being junior to Sampson and me. That
is all there is in it."
