Tomorrow the Germans id tbe United
Suiei will celebrate tbe 206th annirer
ary of the landing of tbe first German
colony in thia country. Tbe obserration
la Identical in significance with tbe Amer
lean holiday called ' Forefather's Day
and celebrated with so much pomp and
earnestness each year on the anmrersary
of the landing of tbe Pilgrim fathers. The
first governor of Manhattan island was a
German and the first settlements of Ger
man colonies were in Lancaster and Le
ban an counties in Pennsylvania, the M.
hawk Valley in New York and the Sheli
andoah Valley in Vircieia.
Tbe Turner n.city of Rook IIod and
others of the city will participate
la the demonstration at Davenport to
Borrow, forming at Turner hall at one
o'clock and proceeding by street car to
that city. There will be a grand street
parade in which it is expected li.. will
participate, and bringing up at Wash
ington square where it will break after
a few brief addresses on the significance
of the occasion and the rendition of the
"Star Spangled Banner." ' Old Country,"
and "Wacht am Rhine." by tbe band.
All the German societies will be repre
sented in the parade.
On Monday evening the event will be
concluded by celebrations at Turner
opera house and Lahrmann's hall. Tbe
German and the German American heart
will fairly throb with patriotiim on this
occasion. Tbe significance of the pa
triotic sentiment embodied in this en
thusiastic movement is fairly illustrated
la St. Louis where 30,0t members of
various organizations have already sig
nified their desire to participate in the
imposing procession which will move in
The anniversary will in the future be
celebrated annually, and rightly should it
be this commi mtration of the landing
of the sturdy Teuton on the free soil ol
