The best blace from which to view the great iharlne panorama was na? turally from the deck of the Oiympla, and by the courtesy of Admiral Dewcy an Associated Press representative was permitted dbbdrd. Very curly the fleet of steamships, steamboats, yachts and tugs, which were to have a place In the llrte,. began moving down the bay to the alldted points, where the several divisions were to form, but many of them could not resist the tempration to first visit tiie anchorage of the men-of war off Trimpklnsville and before .11 o'clock the'Olympia was surrounded by a perfect mob of every known kind of craft; nil Swarming with pcbple, cir? cling around; of' pushing their noses close up under the ship to get a glimpse of the ..Admiral pacing the quarter .fleck.

Old Glory flutter? ed from each rhast-head dnd tnff rail. On each quarter of the New York were the black low-lined .torpedo boats, three on each flank. The rest of the procession moved across the shiny waters. ( THE ADMIRAL ALIi ATTENTION. Admiral Dewey went up on the after bridge as soon as tile start was made aiid remained there throughout the pa? rade, a heroic figure outlined against the skleL for the thousands afloat dnd ashore, with him oh the bridge most of tile, time was Colonel Bartlett; to whom he talked when he was not ac? knowledging the salutes or personally directing the movements of his fleet, arid the Adrrilral gave close attention throughout the journey to everything which transpired on board the vessel. By his direction the ensign was cour tesled to vessels which .saluted, and several times lie ordered the crew to stand by to cheer in answer to sorhe extraordinary demonstration. The gtins of the ?lynipld spoke but or-ce lintll Grant's tomb,was reached. That was when they barked In answer to the deep baying of the gtins ?of old Fort William, on Governor's Island. Befpre the Battery was rbached, hun? dreds bf tugs dnd excursion boats had crowded in behind the pntrol boats and stretched away rank after rank for either shore from the quarter of the Olympia. Their whistles were going continuously throughout the journey. The untold thousands who thronged the wharves', nHd piers; who' leaned from the windows and balconies and looked down'ffbm' the dizzy heights of sky? scrapers 'must"have Impressed th'e Ad? miral greatly, but his modesty would not permit him to view it all as a per? sonal ovation. "Astonishing, astonishing;" lib' rb: peated several times to Colonel Bart? lett, but he said nothing of himself. SCENE ON SHORE. The waving of the hundreds of thou? sands along the shore could be dis? tinctly seen from the deck of the Olympia, but only occasionally were the sounds of cheers wafted from ihi crowds ashore. As a rule perhaps they were too much interested in the spec? tacle to venture vociferous applause; beside, they were too far away to be heard by the Admiral or? the men on the cruisers, even if the terrific din of the cr'itft In the river had riot been kept up almost without intermission. The shrieking whistles were forever going, and when the fleet swept around the Stake boat above Gt-arit's irimb on Riverside drive, and each ship had lei go its booming salute, the concert that followed was soul-mnddenlng?a mad, fantastic, nerve-destroying roar that continued for.almost ten minutes. So much steam was wasted that the boats -Hremaelvea were loot in thelp own va pbr. PARADE DISORGANIZED: The parade at this point began tn become disorganized, hniriy pleasure craft leaving the. line below,arid crowd? ing so fiercely about, the.Olympia, thai slie was manoeuvred with great dilll culty. The excursion boats, loaded to the guards with people, were almosl criminally reckless as they passed along, many of them listed so far thai one wheel was burled deep; while the other scrtrcely touched the. water. ONE INCIDENT. The Admiral was sometimes annoyed by the crowding of thesb craft; but he retained his equanimity through it all, bbwlrig arid rerhbvlhg nil cap to the ex tilting and cheering crowds. It was not Until all the warships had p?ssed Iii review before the' Olympli at Rn'chor below the beautiful floats representing Peace and Victory, that the .one inci? dent of the day] occurred; fchlcH show? ed that with all" His gerilalty the hero of Manila could also be a very stern sailor. In less than.a minute after thb Chicago Had "passed the Olynipia, by the Admiral's brder, a strciirn bf signal flags ordered the vessels of the fleet to dress ship and the crews of the men of war rah up rdiribows ,bf signal flags from stem to stern over their top-masts. A STINGING REBUKE: The order was beautifully executed; except aboard the flagship, where U?? fouling of the lirie In the top of one o( the stacks, caused a delay; Admiral Dewey Instantly rbareM out & command for some one to ease the line. It foul? ed again and a nimble sailor was sent aloft- to clear it: It Was. perhaps two rtilnutes before.,the flags w;ere In their proper, place. The Adrrflral was plain? ly displeased. He sent for the office? under whose direction, the order was executed and called him Updh the bridge. "I am ashamed bf this," lie said, in the tone of a sailor giving command In a roaring gale, "and I am ashamed of you." WHENf HE LEFT THE BRI?GE. .Several limes when the excursion hbata cheered as they passed cjose to the Olyrnpia the Admiral called Upon trje crew to stand by and cheer.

Captain Skrmischlre dnd his officers were exceptions. For the honor of the British merchant marine <.the crime may not be ascribed to the men en? gaged In it, but to a gang of wharf rats, and hangers-on, picked up on the docks at Liverpool to replace the usual crew of the Scotsman, which joined the seaman's strike on the other side. THE CASUALTIES. The list of those who perished Is as follows: First-class passengers?Miss Street, Montreal; Mrs. Childs, wife of the stage manager of the "Sign of - the Cross" Company; Mis. Roberts and ilnfant; Mrs. Scott; Mrs. Robinson, wife of the manager of the Sunlight Soap Company, of Toronto; Mrs. Robertson, wife of a former editor of the Toronto Globe. Second-clnss pnssengers--Mrs. M. N. Scott (occurs twice); Mrs.Watson, Mrs. Talbot?Mre, Tuthill, Mrs. Skelton, Mrs. j Eliza Watklhs, Miss B, Weavers. WOMEN ALONE PERISHED. i It will be noticed that all who perish- i ed were women. This Is accounted for by the fact that they were occupants of the first boat.which left the steam? er after she struck and which was swamped before It could get cleai; of the ship. The Scotsman sailed from Liverpool on September 14th. The passage, to the Straits of Be|l? Isle was a fair one, though the. green crew In the stoke \ hole lessened the speed of the ship so ithat when she reached Bolle Isle she was about a day's run behind her usual avernge. SUCCESSION OF SHOCKS. Entering the Straits of Belle Isle on Thursday night a dense fog blanketed down on the vessel And made naviga? tion, a matter of great caution at all tlmoa In the straits, a precarious un? dertaking. The speed of the ship \\vas reduced and she felt'Kor .way in. At 2 o'clock there was a shock underneath the keel of the Vessel, followed by an other and another. The passengers,' who were asleep, were ?wdkeileu; by'Uia shocks, On deck the thick bank of fog shut put the sight of shore. Passengers'ratt Hither drid thither, but.

One woman clung to a rop? for two hours before being res? cued. DISGRACEFUL SCENES. Meanwhile?.dl?gracpful scenes were being enacted bh .board. Hardly had the' vbssel striick before inch frbni the stroke hole rushed into the cablna, and, slitting open yallses and bags with their knives, took all the valuables they could lay .their hands on. Several of them fired shot-guns and tried to' force men to leave their cabins. It is said that some of the stebrage passengers joined .thb firemen lh loot? ing the baggage of thb' fir'st-class pas? sengers. In more limn one instance rings were torn from the lingers of fainting and dying women. Captain SirnilEdilre and his officers could do nothing against the mob. When morning c?me If was found that the Scotsman lay close in shore i alongside a cliff, fully a thousand feet ] high. A second boat load of women and children, which had been s.ent-.bfL; was called back and the passengers transhipped to the rocks alongside the ship. FACED STARVATION, Until 6:30 tho officers and some of the crew of the Scotsman, worked un? ceasingly In getting the passengers; ashore, and when darkness and a heavy fog set In they were safe onv the rooks. But hero the hew danger of starvation faced them. The lower decks of the ship were entirely under watbr. A quantity of biscuit was carried on shore, and oh this, with a very little corned beef and wild berries, over 200 people existed for four days, i Some natural springs were found, but despite this the bad conditions of food and water brought on much sickness. Many of the passengers sultered from the ex? posure. After much oitliculty some oVercoats arid shawls were secured ,for! Itub.women, nearly.every ohb bflwhbrh, had left: thb shipt in their night clothes. ? The passengers were obliged to, cllrab a rooky cliff nearly S00 feet high be? fore they could find a place large enough to rest. Here they stayed oh the rocks for four days and nights. The first night they had absolutely no shelter, but on Saturday tho captain sent tip blankets and other.clothing. A number of passengers attempted .to reach the light-house about eight miles away. To do this it was necessary to Climb about 1,200 foot higher before a path could be reached. THE RESCUE. ' It was not until the 28th that the Montfort canife along arid was signalled by the Belle Isle Light bell, where a number of the passengers walked from ' the wreck. After bringing these peo ple'on board the ship, she proceeded to where the Scotsman lay. The weather was bright and clear. As soon as prac? ticable the.boats were launched and the work of transferring the passengers began., , . The Montfort took 250 of the passen? gers arid the steamship Grecian, which soon after cnine In sight, took the re rriainder, excepting foiir who decided to return to England, on the steamship Mohlefey, the hext vessel to appear.
