tiago victory belonged Sampson or
Sclilev the assignment of the latter
to a place in the rear in the Dewey
land parade in New York this week
is an act of injustice that all classes
of jicople throughout the land will
protest against. Close as he can be
driven to the Dewey portion of the
parade will ride Admiral Sampson in
:i carnage by himself, while away
back in the rear, beyond the naval
formation, will ride Admiral Schlev
with Admiral Miller, retired. Of the
iionors oi tne tpanisii war, events so
shaped themselves that Schley is en
titled to as much honor as Sampson
at all events, and as the newly as
signed comniauiler of the South At
lantic 8jiiadron, he should at least be
permitted to ride in a carriage
directly back of Admiral Sampson.
while it is very doubtful if naval eti
iiette might not properly have
been stretched a point and placed
Sampson and Schley in the same car
riage. Hut the influence of the ad
ministration was too strong to permit
that. Sampson must lie made the
hero of the occasion, second only to

victorious fleet, with the doughty old
admiral aboard, lying at anchor at
her very door. The returning hero
when New l ork went to led last night
was supposed to lie at least two days'
distant at sea, but it was one of the
Dewey characteristics to put in an ap-
iiearauce some time in advance ot tu
moment anticipated. It will be recalled
that he did that very same tlung at
Manila, rhilippitie islands, iu the early
morning of May I. 1KS.
This time ho has taken the mctroiio-

been Imasting of how she was to com

highest and noblest motives of loyalty
and lofty patriotism.
In all h.-r master efforts to do the
proud for the victorious admiral. New
York has Uen caurht napping. She
was not prepared for the emergency
for the uneNected that happened. The
con.'eiucnee will lie somewhat em
barrassing to the great city in the
furtherance of plans for two davs
hence, but it will not dampen or dim
the welcome that the American people
will extend to the hero of the century.
The spontaneous expression of love
and loyalty, of gratitude and appre
ciation which will come from the na
tion's heart is not to lie bounded by
any one city, and not to be typilied by
signs or symbols, or oratory or musi
cal notes. It is inexpressible, irre
sistible. The nation ioins in one
tremendous shout of joy, one fer
