Graphic Iexcription of the Parade.
New York, Oct., 12. The naval parade
was a mngnifieant sight. That is the
many crafts of all descriptions, but sailed
in line with something like the procession
of marching soldiers, tor an hour the

to the pageant was t lie scene at the turn-

gave every one an uninterrupted view of

pie, for at least that many probably more
saw the spectacle. It was the principal
event of the Seconal festival day of the
Columbus week. The general plan of the
parade was this:
France and Italy had visited this port and '
the city undertook to show them around ,
the harbor. To do this with proper eclat '
the IT. S. S. Philadelphia,; Miantonomah, I
Atlanta, Dolphin, esunus and others ot

all and singular, ad lib.
Viewed From a Distance.
And this is the way it looked from the
top of the "Washington building: At 1
p. m. the observers saw a puff of white
smoke arise far in the distance and heard
faintly the dull boom of many big guns.
It was the salute of 21 guns fired from each
chip of war and answered by the forts.
The marine march had started. Away
beyond the mass of craft in the centre of
the bay could be faintly discerned two
long, dark lines extending north from each
side of the narrows. They were the star
board and port squadrons of the escorting
fleet. Gradually could be made out a row
of what looked like dots. They formed the
advance guard of the procession, the patrol
ing flotilla manned by the naval reserves.
Salute from Liberty Island.
Slowly the form of the parade could lie
made out as the line moved majesticilly up
the harbor Ixetween the hundreds of ves
sels anchored each side of the channel. AC
l:4'i the police boat patrol fo-ming the nose
of the line passed L.iterty island, und the
smoke from a thunderous salute envel
oped the Liberty statue. Just behind the
police patrol came the boats of the reserves,
five de p, flying the naval militia's flag
blue lield with two crossed anchors and
state coat of arms. In solitary state float
ed a long, narrow, low-lying craft, the tor
pedo loat Cushing, on board of which was
Director of the Naval Parade Kane. Fol
lowing it were the directors' vidette Iwats,
ready to dart hither and thither at his or
der. Getting Into Closer ICange.
As the procession neared the liattey, and
could lie distinguished from the surround
ings it was seen that the ships were ar
ranged in three columns. The American
vessels flanked the foreign ships of war.
Next following the Gushing and its videttes
was a line of white banked passenger steam
ers flying the city flag. On them were the
Columbian committee of one hundred with
their guests. The Sam Sloan was ou the
starboard line, the Mohawk on the port,
and the Mattawan in the center.
Formation of the Ilattleships.
Then came the first line of battleships.
The big white hull of the double-turreted
Maintouomoh with her two low circular
turrets, dipping down deep in the water,
was first to be noticed and recognized by ,
every one. She was flanked by the flag
ship Philadelphia, looming higher out of
the water than any other craft, and the
Trench flag Bhip Arethuse, the largest war
ship in the parade. Her lofty spars rising
skyward from the black hull overtopied
everything. As these majectic ships
showed their prows past Governor's island
the Philadelphia gave the signal for U.j
salute. Then ensued one of the most inter
esting and picturesque scenes of the parade.
Firing a Salute of Tweuty-One Guns, i
Every man-of-war fired twenty-one guns, j
The sharp crack of the lighter guns mingled
with the deep boom of the heavier ordnance. !
All down the long line white puffs of smoke
wreathed from the portholes of the advanc
ing ships in succession. The big guns of
Fort William, on Governor's Island, belched
forth an answer. The shots were fired in
rapid succession all around the circular
fort. The arising smoke formed a ring of
mist that belted the grim walls of the mas
sive pile for an instant and then floated
away to mingle with that from the ships. ;
The warships, of course, were of most inter
est to the sightseers. At intervals of 150
yards, in three columns 300 feet apart, sailed
after the Aliantonomah, Philadelphia, and
1Arethuse nine other naval engines of war. (
The United States steamers Atlanta and
Dolphin escorted the French gunboat IIus
the river with a struggling fish in his
claws and a perfia-t bedlam of catcalls and
cockcrows was 'raised by the steame-'s
whistle in an effectual attempt to scare
him into dropping it.
Salute to the Ieal Commander.
At 3:!K p. m. the naval commit tee loat
with the vice president. Governor Flower,
and its other distinguished guests aboard,
turned the buoy and passed the warships
on its homeward trip. Then the signal to
salute was given, and the Columbian naval
pageant closed with the echoes of the great
puns reverlH-rating round the tomb of the
TEN MILES OF HUMANTY.
The Shores of New York Harbor llluik
With IVtiplc Olhcr Kvcuti.
A sight fully as interesting as that of the
vessels in line was presented by the im
mense crowd of spectators on the shore.
Every point of vantage from the water's
cdire to the top of the tallest buildings was
occupied !y people v. ho h.ul waited for
hours for the head of the column of lxiats
to ap;'ar. When the procession moved u;
the river there were ti n miles of hnman't r
m the shore. From the liattery to
Harlem 'was one mass of people. The
Battery itself was a sea of heads. Every
pier along the North river was black with
people, and the windows, balconies, and
roofs of all buildings that commanded a
view of the river were crowded.
The Clci elands Saw the Scene.
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland witnessed the
parade from the deck of Mr. Benedict's
-team yacht Oneida. Mr. and Mrs. Cleve
land sjent the night at Mr. Benedict's
home in Greenwich, Conn., and came down
Dn his vacht vesterday morning. Thevacht

Cleveland sat in the stern of the yacht and
wore a yachting suit and cap. Mrs. Cleve

- No Accident to Mar the Show.
The most remarkable feature of the
, day's turnout was the absence of accidents.
I Many of the excursion steamboats were
' crowded to their utmost capacity and at
times, when HI the passengers crowded to
one side, some danger of capsizing existed,
but no accident was reported from any of
Other Events of the Day.
The day was closed with another brilliant
exhibition of fireworks from Brooklyn
bridge, which began at 8:30 and lasted until
11 p. m. At 7 p. m. the Roman Catholic
societies paraded, and presented a fine ap
pearance. The procession was reviewed by
Archbishop Corrigan at the Cathedral. The
German singing societies gave a concert at
the Seventh Regiment armory, and the Ro
man Catholics a memorial celebration at
i Carnegie Musie hall. During the evening
the parks were illuminated.
Looked Their Last on Tennyson.
LosiKJN, Oct. 12. The members of the
Tennyson family took a last look at the
features of the dead poet Monday, Lady
Tennyson leaving the room after all the
others were gone. The laureate wreath
that encircled the brow of the poet was re
moved, but a number of its leaves were laid
at the head and feet. The arms were
brought forward and the hands were crossed
upon the chest. Befo-e the coffin was
closed one of the family nurses placed a
small whit package in it. The contents of
this package were not divulged. Then the
cover of the colliu was fastened down.
CLIMAX TO THE
Scene at the Turning l'oint Opposite the
Tomb of Grant.
One of the sights of the parade was a ser
ies of gigantic floats illustrating the re
markable progress in the art of shipbuild
ing since the time when Columbus discov
ered Americu. As the parade passed Bat
tery park a second salut of twenty-ono
guns was fired. The rumbling of the can
non had scarcely died away when the
mighty host along the shores began to
cheer. The cheer began at the Battery and How many truffle eaters know that the
wept along slowly ' but mightily, like the dainty is a fungus growth found iu loose
roar of thunder. Before it reached the end soil a few inches under ground, usually in
of the line it was again taken up by the forests where oak, beech and chestnut
assembled throng on the Battery, and again trees abound? All truflles are imported,
the roar rolled along the shores of the North none being found in this country .

Stillwater. Minn.. Oct. 12. Victor C.
Seward, the veteran Minnesota journalist
and editor of the Stillwater Messenger, was
shot yesterday afternoon proKably with fa
tal results, by a young man named George
Peters. Passers-by on Main street south
alout 5 o'clock noticed that. Peters was
talking loudly and in rather an incoherent
manner to Mr. Seward, the two standing
on the sidewalk in front of Drechsler's
music store. Suddenly and without warn
ing Peters drew a revolver and fired at Mr.
Seward, the bullet making a flesh wound in
the back of Seward's head.
A Cowardly Assassin's Act.
Seward then turned and staggered into
Drechsler's store, throngh the open door
way, falling to the floor. Peters I followed
him closely, -nd as the othei lay on the
floor deliberately pointed his revolver and
again fired, the second bullet entering at
the top of his head and passing around un
der the skin came out over the eye. A
third bullet went through Seward's hat.
Peters turned and started out of the door.
A couple of bystanders caught the assns
sin. He inquired for Chief of Police Short
all, and announced his intention of deliver
ing himself up to justice. He was taken to
the county jail.
Seward Taken to His TTome.
Meantime a start let! crowd had collected
around Drechsler's store, on the fhxr of
which, just within the door, Mr. Seward
lay in a poo! of his own blood. He was
speedily conveyed to the office of Dr. W. H.
Cain, where a hasty examination showed
that the wounds were dangerous, probably
fatal. A few minutes afterward he was
conveyed to his home on South Fifth street,
where he now lies. Peters is n young man,
having hardly passed his 24th" birthday.
About three years ago he was (employed by
Seward ns a reporter, but his work not.
proving satisfactory he was discharged,

Hail Threatened to Kill II is Vicllr.i.
He has made repeated threats tokill Sew

had, in fact, called at Seward's office a few
minutes before the shooting, looking for his
victim. This summer he was engaged in
vending vegetables, and lived nar South
Stillwater, three or four miles lelow
the city. When arrested he seir,cd
pcrpeetly calm, and remarked that
he had come up from South
Stillwater expressly to kill Seward and
hoped that the shots would p ve fat.-.l.
Said lie: '"If the trigger of mvgnii had
not caucht my first shot would have killed
him. I had a reason and a very good one
for shooting that man, and when the prr

Horrible Murder of a Woman iu a Glas
IiONbox, Oct. 12. The trunk of a wom
an's lly was found yesterday in the gar
den around i. villa in the outskirts of Pol
lokshields, a suburb of Glasgow. It had
leen terribly mutilated. Immediately after
death, apparently, the woman had been
disemljowelled, her breasts had lieen cut
open, and other horrible methods followed
by '".lack the Kipper" had leen attempted
with evident clumsiness. The head, legs,
and arms had lieen cut off and scattered
through the garden. The features of the
face had been so mutilated that they were
Snspectdfl and Missing.
The care-taker named McEwan is sus
ected of the murder. He has not yet lieen
seen at his post since the discovery of the
murder and the police have been unable to
find him. He is a man of great muscular
development, and the condition of the
woman's trunk showed that the body was
dismemlK-red as much by main strength
as from the use of the knife. McEwan
drank heavily and was eccentric, but was
rarely violent while in liquor.

The Action of the Grand Jury In the

two indictments one against the Home

against the officials of the Carnegie com

some of their men, for murder, conspiracy
and aggravated riot. The idea of the jury
seems to have been to have the whole mat
ter fully ventilated in court. None of the
Carnegie officials will say anything.

OUR ANXIOUS PRESIDENT.
He Waits Hopelessly hy the Hcriside of
His IyinK Wile.
Washington, Oct. 12 President Harri
son was the most anxious and unhappy
man in Washington yesterday. Nearly all
of his cabinet advisers were in New York
in attendance upon the festivities in honor
of Columbus and his discoveries; his pri
vate secretary, upon whom Mr. Harrison so
largely deiK-mls, was with them in the me
tropolis; all the prominent politicians and
government officials had left the capital for
various points to participate in the grta;
political campaign, and the president was
left alone to watch at the liedside of his
sick wife. Mrs. Harrison was desperately
ill Monday night. She had a recurrence of
the dreaded cough that causes her such
pain, aud failed to obtain any refreshing
Mrs. Harrison Growing; Weaker.
The president sat up half the night to
wait upon her and chat with her. He tel
egraphed yesterday afternoon that he could
not be present in Xew York even long
enough to witness the parade. Dr. Gard
ner made another call at the 'While House
last night, and while there he said to a re
porter that Mrs. Harrison continues to
grow weaker and weaker every day and
that her right lung has entirely ceased to
perform its natural functions.
May Iie at Any Time.
It is as solid as a piece of lead, he says,
and she is simply existing with the aid of
the left lung, which is also affected. To a
direct question the doctor replied that his
patient might survive a week longer or she
may possibly last two or three months.
The family realize that she has a bopehs
case of consumption and they are prepared
for the end at anv time.
