Decoration day was celebrated in Council Bluffs yesterday with all of the usual frills anil furbelows. The weather could not have been better during the earlier part of the day , the slight rain of Monday evening having laid the tlust and inndo marching considerably plcasanter thna tt would have been otherwise. Huslncss was almost sus- ncndcd all day long , but the streets wore far from deserted. It was hardly afternoon when the children , each one clad in Sunday- Ro-to-moetlng clothes , commenced to collect In Hayllss park , followed soon after by their elders , all anxious to witness the p.u-ado. A great many who live In the rural districts were present to swell the throng of spectators. While the procession was formIng - Ing Dalbcy's band rendered n number of choice selections In front of the Grand hotel In n way that pleased the great audience highly. It was about 2:30 : o'clock when the various societies intending to take part In the parade were marshaled Into position and the pro cession started , although for a full hour previous the marshal and assistant marshals had been working like beavers to get the line formed. The procession was ono of the longest over seen In Council Ululls on any similar occasion , nearly every society In the city being represented fully. lllcli Hrlioul Cutlet * . The High school cadets iniulo their first appearance In public , led by the new Hag , which was presented them by the .voung ladles of tlio High school last week , H was conceded by all that they made about the llnest appearance of any body of young men in the procession , and the military evolu tions they performed spoke well for the work they have done during the past few months since the corps was organized. The Dodge Light guards were also on hand and mailo a creditable showing , occupy ing a position Just In advance of the Grand Armvand Union Veterans. The cltyofllcials and speakers of the day rode in carriages. Among those marching were several hun dred school children , who vented their en thuslasm in oar splitting yells at sjitablo intervals. The rear of the pat-ado was brought up ' > y a largo number o citizens In carriages. Before the day was over several cogs slipped In the weather ma chine and the beautiful sunshine of the morning and early afternoon changed in the midst of the program to a drenching rain that sent the whlto dresses and American Hags hustling for their homes in a very much bedraggled condition. About the time the crowd arrived at the cemetery the clouds began to roll up , and while the speechifying was goimr on the outlook became so threat ening as to Bend a large portion of the audi ence home in alarm. These who did not go regretted it before they finally reached their homes. Orntiir of tlio Hay. Prof. W. II. Christie ot Omaha was the principal orator of the day. Ills effort was an eloquent , although somewhat lengthy one. Kov. Stephen Phelps , D.D. , gave an address on the subject , "Tho Objects of the AVoman's Relief Corps , " Music was fur nished by the High school quartet , the drum corps ( and the school children. After these features j of the program had been finished it was found necessary to postpone the rest until evening. Last evening that portion of the exorcises which was prevented from taking place dur ing the afternoon by the storm was given at the Grand Army hall , a largo number being present. Tnc main feature was the address of S. B. Wadsworth. TKIl * TO MAXAWA. lloiiiilson liri)9. , tlio Dry GnoiU Men , Will < ; ivo thu Children of the Tlircu Cities Diiy'H Online.
