THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF
VISITOBS WERE PRESENT TO DO
HONOR TO THE MEMORY OF THE
GREAT GENERAL?MRS, JEFFER?
SON DAVIS AND HER DAUGHTER
WERE THE GUESTS OF MRS.
New York, April 27.?The day broke
clear, and though the huh is bright it is a
trifle cool with a brisk wind. Everybody
was on hand curly. The parade, judged
by every standard, was the most pictur?
esque event in the history of this State or
nation. The Columbian parade pales
into Insignificance when compared with
it. To future generations its complement
will be the climax of the great army re
view in Washington at the end of the war
between the States. Then a 'divided na?
tion proclaimed Grant a hero. Today a
united nation reveres his memory.
From all parts of the Union visitors
have come. New York for the time being
loses its identity. Everywhere can be
seen groups who by their habiliments be?
token their strangeness to the metropolis.
The population of the city is doubled.
Never was such a crowd seen from Union
Square to Riverside Park.
Promptly at 10:80 the land 'parade
started. General Dodge, preceded by a
platoon of police and the band from Gov?
ernor's Island, led the way. The Presi?
dent occupied a landau.
Hehind the Presidential party rode
Mrs. Grant, and family, Mayor Strong and
General Porter. Mrs. Grant mid family
had as an escort four comrades of the
Society of Army of the Tennessee, four
companies of the Loyal Legion and four
veterans of the Grand Army. She was
given a heartier reception of cheers than
Governor Black, surrounded by his
staiT, headed the second division. Then
came the governors of'ten other States.
First in line was Governor Hastings,
of Pennsylvania, followed by a provis?
ional brigade picked from the Natioual
Guard of Pennsylvania.
The Southerners in line were much ad?
mired for their soldierly appearance. The
Richmond Blues were the escort uf Gov?
ernor Char'es T. O'Ferrall, of Virginia,
who led the National Guard of that State.
They attracted much attention, and were
Governor Bushiicll and stafT, of Ohio,
attracted much attention. Tho governor
is a general with a war'record, and was
supported by a detachment of cavalry .'In?
fantry and artillery from the Ohio Na?
Gene"ral Howard rode at the head of the
veterans of the land and sea forces of the
Union. The vets, were given an ovation.
Everyone thought that when they were
cheering them they were also cheering
Grant. A stafT ofjone hundred veterans
acted as General Howard's escort.
Following the Union veterans came the
Confederate Veterans "and the Sons of
Confederate Veterans. They were given
a hearty welcome.
The civic division came next, with Col.
Homer as grand marshal. The-let ter car?
riers formed the first brigade; then came
the firemen, public schools and Ancient
Order of Hibernians. One striking fea?
ture was the tribe of Sioux Indians with
Col. Cody and Chief Jospeh, of the Nez
Perces.who were present upon the invita?
tion of General Miles.
Promptly at 12 o'clock General Porter
delivered the keys to Grant's tomb to
Mayor Strong for the city.
The appearance of Mrs. Jefferson Davis
and daughter Miss Winnie, was noticed
at the grand stand. The business portion
of the city was practically dead.
The exercises at the tomb began at
10:30 and were as follows:
Hymn, "America, My Country, Tis of
Prayer bp Bishop .T. P.' Newman.
Hymn of thanks, ' Old Netherland
Address by the President of the United
"Star Spangled Banner."
Oration by General Horace. Porter, pres?
ident of the Grant .Monument Associa?
Acceptance of the monument by Mayor
Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's
Doxology by the chorus under Frank
The head of the procession reached the
reviewing stand just at the close of the
dedication ceremonies. i When the parade
had passed the chorus of 1,0(10 voices un?
der the leadership of Frank Damrosch
sang Wagner's "Kaiser Marsch" the
words having been altered to fit the occa?
sion, and then the "Battle Hymn of the
Grand Marshal Dodge had 150 aides,
among them Chief Joseph, of the Nez
Perces Indians, anil Olocut, his sub-chief.
I Tne entire personnel of the parade includ?
ed regular tioops, New York National
I Guard, the guards of other States, school
I cadets, veterans and civic bodies of New
York. There were 00,01)0 men in line.
Mrs. Jefferson Davis and Miss Winnie
Davis were the guests of Mrs. ^Grant in
reviewing the procession.
After reviewing the parade the Presi?
dent and his party boarded the dispatch
boat Dolphin and reviewed the naval
parade. The tleet assembled in the upper
harbor, and moved tip the North river in
four divisions, and passed between the
New York shore and the line of anchored
warships, opposite, the tomb. They
turned, after passing the flagship at One
Hundred antl Thirteenth street, and pass
cd down between the warships and the
New Jersey shore. Salutes both to the

1SUAY, APRIL 28,
Strong Revolutionary Feeling Dis?
played by the Excited Greeks.
OFFICERS OF THE CROWN
PRINCE'S STAFF ARE SEVERELY
CRITICISED?THE ROYAL FAM?
ILY REPORTED TO BE READY TO
LEAVE GREECE IF NECESSARY.
FORTY TO FIFTY THOUSAND
GREEKS GATHERED TOGETHER
FOR A FINAL STAND.
Athens, April '27.?The most serioii3
feature in tho Greco-Turkish emergency
is the revolutionary feeling at Athens,
st.irretl up by ex-Minister Ralli, leader of
the principal opposition group in the leg?
islative assemlily. M. Ralli, severely
criticised the conduct of Prince Constan?
tino's stall and says their whole thought
was not to attack or withstand the Turks,
hut to effect .1 safe retreat if necessary.
It is reported that arrangements are being
made to enable the royal familv to leave
Greece hastily in case of necessity.
The Greeks have gathered at 'Pbnrsalia
from M.OOO to~40,(KK) troops, the larger
part of the army recently at Larissa. It
is doubted whether the movement from
the latter place was retreat or a riot. The
Turks say it. was llight, and point to large
quantities of war material left behind,
to say nothing of a plentiful supply of
brandy. The Greeks aflirm that they
came away at a dignified puce, leaving
nothing but their heavy siege guns,
winch, however, were carefully disabled.
A dispatch from Athens says that if the
Greeks are now driven from Pbnrsalia
they ?vi 11 retire to Thennopylae, and
there make a final stand. Should they do
so it is to be hoped that'they will not be
cut off there by . the Turks, as previous
deft-odors of that pass were by the Per?
Seme anxiety is felt for the safety of
Yolo, the port from which Larissa was
orovisioned, and a base of supplies also,
it is believed, for Pharsalia. A railway
extends northward from Yolo to Larissa,
and a branch line, leaving the main track
not far from Yolo, extends westward to
Kaliunpaka, passing near Pharsalia, The
Turks, it. is evident, will follow the rail?
way from Lntlssn to Yolo and may be ex?
pected to try to occupy the to*"n. To in?
crease the anxiety of the Greeks the lleet
is away from Yolo, where many refugees
need protection and relief, and its wheru
abontfrare unknown or unrevenled. It is
supposed at Athens to be looking for the
Turkish lleet. The Turks are expecting
it to be horn bard Salonica.
Nothing more is heard of the Greek
force which was reported Sunday by a
newsgatherer at Constantinople to be ad?
vancing on Elassoua. the Turkish base of
supplies ftom the direction of Mt. Olym?
pus. If it had real existence?M. Delyan
nis, the Greek premier, does not seem to
know anything of It?it was perhaps only
a small detachment landed for H few
hours from the Greek warships recently
engaged in bombarding the Turkish vil?
lages along the coast ol the gulf of Sa?
M. Delrnnuis considers the successes of
the Greek troops in Epirus a counterpoise
for the tlifeat of the army commanded by
the Crown Prince in Thessuly. The arri?
val of the Greeks at Janlna, their objec?
tive point, was'expected to take place last
Saturday night, but a dispatch sent from
Athens on Sunday says Colonel Mnnoi is
still preparing to leave Artn for Jumna.
A repcrted dispatch from Janlna, via
Constantinople, describes the people there
as in a state of fright in anticipation of
an ut.t;>ck by the G reeks.
The ixact situation in Epirus is diffi?
cult to ascertain, the news being conflict?
ing anl vague. It seems to be certain
that tin expected risings in Alaliania and
Macedonia have not occurreil.
The lolitlcal situation in Alben? itself
seems ;o be criMcal. Disappointed bv the
result of the war so far. the populace
are iudgnnnt, and want to punish some?
body. A cabinet crisis is reported to be
immimnt The premier is, of course,
optimiitic, and is "convinced that Ath?
ens wil remain quiet.'1 What is feared
is indicated by his declaration "that the
people have complete confidence in the
king aid the government, ami there is no
reason to fear any disturbance." There
is, however, no voice raised for peace.

Robert Conway's Escape From a
The jury in the case of the common
wealth against Robert Conway fot the
murder of his wife, after boing out for
about four hours, brought in a verdict
giving him fifteen years in the peniten?
When the evidence in the case had con?
cluded the attorneys upon either side
agreed'to suomit it without'.argumtnt
and accordingly the jury reitred without
tho caso being argued. As soon as the
jury filed out the look of unconcern and
stupidity that had characterized Conway
throughout the trial vanished, and it
could be seen that he was deeply inter?
ested and was awaiting with the greatest
degree of impatience the verdict. When
the jury finally announced that a verdict
was reached, Bob seemed to retili/.o that
the crisis had come and the terrible strain
under which his nerves had undergone
nearly overcame him, but when the ver?
dict was announced ho could restrain him?
self no longer and wept bitterly.
When he was taken back to jail a re?
porter saw him and he appearetl to be
really cheerful. He expressed his grati?
tude to the jury for saving his life, but
said he had no other idea than he would
be hung. The reason, he claimed, that
he thought so was not on account, of his
guilt so much as that he had no friends
to whom he might solicit aid of any kind.
He very pathetically related the inci?
dents that led to the committing of the
horrible deed, and said he did not kill his
wife because he did not love her, but be?
cause she was unfaithful, and instead of
expressing regret at her lack of fidelity
persisted and defied him tc do his worst.
He said he was (55 years old. lint hoped

Sayn the Republican Party Won on Roth
Tariff ami Money Issues.
New York, April 27.? In an interview
yesterday Congressmen Dingloy, chair?
man of the committee on ways and
means.in reply to ex-President.Cleveland's
criticism at the Reform Club dinner, Sat?
urday night, that the Republican party
wou the late election on its declaration in
favor of a sound currency and not on the
tariff issue, said:
"The fact is that the Republican party
won on both issues, and the tariff issue
in those parts of the country which prac?
tically decided the contest had more to do
with the victory than any other issue.
"Nothing could be clearer than that
the pledges of the party made it its first
; duty to provide sufficient revenue to carry
on the government without borrowiug in
time of peace, and in the adjustment of
duties on imports to that end to encour?
age industries of the United States
stricken by unfair competition.
"If the Repnbltcau'party should fail at
the beginning of its lease of pcwor tc do
these tilings it. could be justly - held to
have proved faithless to its pledges.
"As to the responsibility which rests
upon the party to preserve a sound cur?
rency, rest assured that there will no no
failure. Indeed, the triumph of the party
in November last was an assurance which
has been accepted by the commercial
world that a sound currency would bo
"There is undoubtedly need, at the onf
liest possible date, of some legislation to
improve our currency system, but, no one
knows better than the gentlemen who are
criticising the Republican party that if
such legislation should be taken up to?
day, in the present condition of the Sen?
ate, no favorable results could be ob?
tained, and the agitation which would
arise from a long and fruitless debate in
the Senate would exert an injurious In?
