Salt Lake Aug 1L Under the all
pervading sentiment Cheers for
t the living and tears for the dead
I several thousand survivors of the Civil
war made their annual march today
up and down tho broad asphalt sur
face of Main street for over a dis
tance of two miles and passed before
the re lowing eyes of Henry M Ne
vlus their comninndcrInchlef
The grand parade of the fortythird
encampment embraced the flower and
strength of the survivors of the na
tional stress of half a century ago
This feature was due to the fact
thai the journey to the place of en
campment was a long one to bo un
dertaken only by the strongest Yet
there wore many aged and Infirm
whose halting walk presaged that be
fore another encampment shaH have
assembled they will have joined the
countless dead at rest under the sol
emn pine tho tearful willow and tho
embracing vine Nature seemed im
pressed with the significance of the
occasion The humidity of the past
few days had been gulhered Into
clouds of lacy film which wore en
tangled In the dentated peaks of tho
Wasatch and Oqulrrah ranges
The day was an Ideal summer day
of tho mountains Wandering breezes I
from canyon and plain bore the per i
fume of the ripened harvest conson I
ant with the flowered honors and years
of those who wore the blue
In the line of march were those
who came out of Wilson creek of Shl
lob of Stone river and of Chlckama
gua of Chattanooga Lookout Moun
tain and Missionary Ridge of Fred
erlclosburg and Antfctam survivors ol
tho glories of Gettysburg and of the
Wilderness and even those who saw
the panorama of war from Sumter

AsthoyTnarched to theh iriUng
sound of drum and fife to the old
tunes over ground which felt not tho
shock of battle and before thousands
of the generations enjoying the bless
ings of tho principle for which they
fought visions of the past rose in re
trospect and once mare they were with
Sheridan Sherman and Grant
By proclamation of the governor of
the state and the mayor of the city
the day was a holiday and long be
fore the formation of tho parade vant
ago points along the route of march j
were overcrowded with spectators
Ropes wore stretched along the streets
which were kept clear of all traffic
At 030 oclock tho various depart
ments rendezvoused on South Tem
ple and First Second and Third
South streets adjoining Main street
Two blasts from a whistle in tho
Tribune building and the column formAt
At 10 oclock three sounds were
blown from tho whistle and the pa
rade of 1909 was in motion
The column entered Main street
under the eaves of the Mormon torn
pie past tho statue of Brigham Young
in tho following order

Fort Douglass and the National Guard

Utah being the host of the encamp
ment came last
Scattered through the line were
twentyfive bands and drum corps
which kept up a continuous rythm of I
music to the accompaniment of the
steady beat of feet
For seven blocks the veterans
marched in undulating line to Seventh
South und Main streets on tho west
side of which they were greeted with
a living flag composed of thirteen I
hundred boys and girls in costume
The children dressed In rod white
and blue formed an emblem eighty
feet long and fifty two feet ide
A wave effect was produced as the
veterans passed by one section of Uie
boys and girls standing while another
stooped low enough to become tem
porarily invisible When Utah passed
the living flag tho children compos
ing the latter took position in the
roar of the line and the parade be
gan its countermarch by the review
ing stand
With bands playing and children
singing Marching Through Georgia
Tho nuUle Hymn of the Republic I
and Onward Christian Soldiers
there was a wave of patriotic impulse
which swept over the vast host of
participants and spectators
Back along the line of cheering
thousands came tho procession with
steady tramp to the reviewing stand
where colors were lowered and hats
and the old service caps of the rebel
lion were doffed
On past tho reviewing stand the
veterans walked and the grand parade
of the Fortythird encampment be
came a memory
It was estimated that 70or veter
ans took part In the parade which was
one hour and a half passing a given
point Not until 130 oclock did the
echo of tho foot and drum die away
The only distressing feature of the
day was the fainting of a dozen or
more of the children composing the
living flag due to their longstanding In I
