Trelay the music of the band, the fife and the drum was heard in all directions as the hundreds of societies who were to take part in the civic parade hastened to their headquarters and later to the po sitions assigned them in the col umn. The parade was formed in three grand divisions.the first of which was composed as fol lows: Mounted po lice; police on foot; Sous a's Chicago GENERAL MILES. band; Mexican National band; Miles and staff; Chicago Hussars; E.

These grand divisions in turn were divided iato other divisions, the second grand having ten parts. The parade was through the business portion of the city, beginning on the lake front near the Auditorium, and ending on State street near Harrison, where dispersal took place. The line of march took in all the principal down-town streets. Estimate of the Numbers. Thetotal number of paraders as esti mated varies all the way between 5c,000 and 1(X),(K,0, so the reader ean take his choice; t he latter figure, however, is the one given by the most enthusiastic Chicagoans and as they never lie the inference is plain. General Stockton was a supreme command and General Miles, was the grand marshal. One feature that was not in the parade.but that would have addud to its brilliance, was the Masonic fraternity. The cause seems to have been ft general unwillingness to march. This is true as to the white Masons. The negro lodges were represented. l'arude Arranged for Saturday, In response to the complaints of World's fair officials, t!ie troops and the general public, arrangements were made yesterday for a parade of the Illinois National Guard Saturday through the business portion of the city. Invitations have been issued to all the state guards present to take part in the parade. It is possible that the regulars will also participate. CEREMONIES OF DEDICATION. A Programme of Music and Oratory Depew and Wattersoii Speak. Chicago, Oct. 21. Today was the cul mination of the Columbian festival, and the destination of everybody in town was the patch of ground which a year ago was an arid, sandy waste, but which now is ocenpied by the majestio buildings which are to house for six months next year the cream of human skill, art and ingenuity;and what a change I where so short a a time ago the sand was all that could be seen save a few stunted bishop towlkr. shrubs and occasional tufts of coarse grass, patches of morass and an irregular excava tion filled with lake water that looked more like a swamp than anathing else, now arises a magic city of white, ornate with column and dome, with sculptured cap ital and frcize the sum of the highest development bf architecture. The Great of the Karth 'Were There. To dedicate these buildings the foremost of the land came statesmen of national fame, orators of world-wide reputation, prelates whose names are household words, diplomats foreign and native, governors, soldiers, and scientists of renown, profes sional men, and merchants; while to look 0:1 and applaud the success of this great enterprise, the pageant that preceded the dedication and the words of burning elo quence with which the achievements of Columbus and of the young republic for whose foundation he opened the way, thou sands of representative citizens in all walks of life gathered from all parts of the Union. Never in the history of the world, proba bly, has so great a work been so success lully accomplished, so nobly crowned. Chicago Arrayed In lleauty. When the multitudes began injuring into the down town districts this morning to view the parade they saw, st retelling away in every direction, streets nulow with deco rations till tliey looked like a gigantic flower garden in full bloom. The national colors predominated, but with the red, white and blue wore mingled the flags of all nation ami here mid there n fctrcak of teua cotU, Chicago's uewly-choseu tuu- JllC nlcipal color, formed a dark background for the more vivid hues of the other deco rations. The work of decorating had been in progress for sev eral days, but it was not until late Wednesday night that the workmen on the sky-scrapers along Dear born street and on the big State street retail stores pub the finishing touches to their work and left the fronts of their M iWl' hn 11 d I n rr . hlm. WW mering with vari- henry WATTR80if. colored bunting. The designs of the decorations were as many in number as the designers, but as in most matters the simplest designs pro duced the most striking effect. All the business streets were elaborately decorated and the residence streets in all parts of the city were aglow with bright colors. De scriptions in detail would require columns It had to be seen to be appreci ated. In short, Chicago "did herself p.-uu." As day sent the shadows of ulghtskurying over the western horizon, the rapid boom of cannon firing the national salute announced to the citizens that the culmination of the festival was at hand. From every sec tion of the city the people early began mak ing their way to the lake front and to diCei ent parts on the line of march to see the procession of prominent men.escorted by United States troops, en route to the World's fair site. Chicago's 1,600,000 in habitants had been reinforced during the preceding days by about 500,000 visitors and the streets were alive with hurrying throngs. It was a living torrent. Before the hour of starting the sidewalks were crowded with sightseers and the stands erected for the purpose packed to the limit with others. The multitude of humanity was in itxelf a sight to be remembered for life. Formation of the Parade. Especially in the neighborhood of the Auditorium, where the procession formed, was t he crowd dense. Here it was impossi ble for any one to force his way through. The procession of dignitaries was escorted by United States cavalry and light artillery. The guests of t he city were in carriages, the staff of each governor following him, and the portion of United States troops detailed to act as escort to each different notable fol lowing that personage or his staff. It was an inspiriting scene. The chargers of the cavalry, the bright accouterments of the troops, the polished guns, and the uniforms of the officers and governors' staffs, with the decorations of the carriages, formed a spectacle of motion, brightness, and color never to bo forgotten. As the cavalry troops whose deeds on the frontier have made them famous were recognized they were greeted with swelling cheers that, be ginning at the Auditorium, continued throughout the whole nine miles of the parade.

The "present" by the com mand and the ride around the line was dis pensed with, owing to the limited time. The troops having passed in review then became the escort of honor for the entire procession, and it continued the march via Fifty-seventh' street to the exposition grounds; thence to the manufactures and liberal arts building, where the troops took the position assigned them, the officials oc cupying the platform prepared for them.

The struggle, tho weary and anxious watching, the hopes and fears, that have been the daily inci dents of the White House since the presi dent's wife was brought home from Loon Lake, are over. The end has come and Caroline Scott-Harrison devoted wife, MRS. BENJAMIN HARRISON, faithful mother has gone down into the dark valley. The end came this morning at 1:40 o'clock. For hours it had been awaited. At midnight she was slowry sinking, her respiration having fallen to 13 per minute and her awakenings from lethargic sleep were at greater intervals and for briefer periods. The president had at that time been seven and one-half hours in an unbroken stretch at her side. All the members of the family remained in the room probably ten or fifteen minutes after the death, and then, overcome by grief, they repaired to their respective rooms and were nlone in their great sorrow. The first intelligence of Mrs. Harrison's death was communicated to the newspaper representatives, grouped in a room as signed to the clerical force of the executive mansion, by Mr. Montgomery, an employe. Messages of ftmypathy. Among the first messages of sympathy received at the White House Tuesday and there were hundreds of them received during the day was one from Queen Vic toria, who said: "I have heard with the deepest regret of your sad loss, and sincere ly sympathize with you n your grief." The telegram was signed "Victoria It. I." Another early message was from ex Secre tary Blaine and wife. It was contained in nn envelope, directed by Blaine himself, but its contents at this writing have not been given out. Through Cardinal Gib bons and Cardinal Rampollo the pope of Rome also sent his "heartfelt condolence in your present affliction.'' Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland also sent condolence; also Vice President Morton, Governor Chase; Judge Martindale, of Indianapolis; Governor Mc Kinley and a bost of others. Returned an Obligation In Kind. Of course there were numerous callers at tho "White House yesterday. Rey. Dr. Hamlin was one, and he spent some time with the president. Attorney General Mil ler also called, and so did Secretary Tracy. The secretary has never recovered from the affliction he suffered in the tragic death of bis wife and he knew well the feelings of the grief -stricken man to whom he came to tender condolences, as the president and Mrs. Harrison had done to him so tenderly arid thoughtfully in bis own great bereave ment. The president is bearing up re markably well A his deep affliction. He and the other members of the family are bravely enduring the stndn on them, and their grief, though painfully evident, is well controlled. FRENCH CANADIAN "SASS."
