WEIGHT OF YEARS, IN LINE
AT SAN FRANCISCO.

SURVIVORS OF FAMOUS BATTLE
FIELDS HEARTILY CHEERED
•Y GREAT CROWD.
8m Francisco, Aug. 10.—The parade
of the veterans of the Grand Army ot
the Republic in this city will bo long
remembered by the thousands of peo
ple who flocked the streets along the
line of march to witness it. Not a
few of thorn recognize that for them
this meant the passing of the heroQS
ol many a bloody struggle in defense
oi the Union for all time in a collective
body so far as this city is concerned.
Devoid of all the pomp and panoply of
the warlike host which marched in
all the pride of strength and youth in
Tuesday's parade, theio wa.s sumo
thing pathetic in the thinned-out
ranks of the veterans who marched
during the day which touched tin
heaita of all who saw thom, bowed
with tho weight of years, worn out
and wuary, but animated by the fires
of an unyuenching spirit, this rem
nant of a mighty host which had
carved out victory for the republic on
the hardest fought batlleiieids the
World hu*s kuowu, marched proudly
along, the last of an unconquered band
of heroes.
Proudly they marched with the bat
tleflags waving above the swaying
ranks, flags which bore the marks oi
Khot and shell in many a fierce fray,
comrades together now as they were
then. With military precision these
old soldiers of Antietam, Vicksburg
the Wilderness, Gettysburg and Ap
pomattox swung into line at the ap
pointed hour, ready for the command
to march.
Illinois Detachment Leads.
Headed by the detachment from Illi
nois commanded by Benson Wood the
Grand Army detachments appeared in
full muster at their appointed stations,
ready to move with the main column
which started punctually at 10 o'clock
ou the route of march. The mounted
staff of department commanders and
all the mounted escorts were formed
Into platoons of eight files front, the
distance beli.j regulated at four
paces. This formation was well main
tained all through the parade and the
same can be said of the different
posts which were paraded Bome six
teen paces apart, with a double dis
tance between the files.
A platoon of police led the column,
commanded by Chief Wittman, and
». as followed by the drum corps of
the National Association of Civil War
Musicians. Next in linu was Chief
Marshal Edward T. Solomon and his
staff.
The personal escort of Commandei
In-Chief Stewart was composed oi
George H. Thomas Post No. 2, depart
ment of California, A. D. Cutler com
manding. Accompanying the com
mander-in-chief was Quartermaster
General Burrows, Judge Advocate Gen
eral Beers, Adjutant General John
W. Schall, Chaplaln-in-Chief Shuey
and Inspector General Walsh, with
members of the executive committee.

ead of the Wisconsin division. They

tf the department of the Pacific Gen
eral Cobb and Colonel Lyon, all three
feeing attired in civilian clothing. All
*b

"ffrom Wisconsin and all have won na
tirnal renown.
Survivors of Historic BltHiy.
Six survivors of the heroic Knapp's
Pennsylvania battery of light artillery
marched in the line and were warm
ly greeted. This is the remnant of
the ISO men of this hirl Pjffcting regi
ment who were mustered out at the
('lose of the war and this its the first
I* Occasion the battery has paraded

w. ft and review of the Federal troops at
fy&flhington, in May, 1865.
Tlr oughout the parade was strictly
military, no women, children nor gro
tesque costumes being permitted iu
the column. Carriages also were pro
hibited and the few which appeared,
Hot exceeding two to each depart
ment, were occupied by disabled vet

for many of the older veterans, show

by the grand marshal.
BOOM FOR GENERAL MILES.
Democrats Would Name Him for Gov
ernor of Massachusetts.
Boston, Aug. 20.—Lieutenant Gen
eral Nelson A. Miles is being advo
cated as the Democratic candidate for
governor this fall by the anti-Gaston
faction. According to those who do
not approve of the nomination of Colo
nel William A. Gaston the nomination
of General Miles would absolutely
unify the party In the state. Further,
they are sufficiently optimistic to be
lieve that his candidacy would appeal
to enough Republicans to insure hla
election.
They point out that he would get
the old soldier vote almost solid, re
gardless of party, and that public sym
pathy, resulting from the circum
stances attending his retirement from
the army, would operate greatly to
his advantage at the polls. Further,
that the Republican element which is
opposed to Governor Bates would as
willingly vote for General Miles as
for Colonel Gaston.

ceived by Miss Sinks. Miss Sinks ex
plains that she met Thompson while

FORT M'HENRY ABANDONED.
Historic Point Is No Longer an
Army Post.

solve an Injunction obtained by the

holds the changes in the clauses make
it a partial victory for the workmen.

JOINT NAVAL DISPLAY
POWERS CONSIDERING ADVISA­
BILITY OF DEMONSTRATION
B6FORE SALON ICA.
RUSSIAN FLEET IN TURKISH WATERS
SQUADRON ANCHORED AT SMALL
PORT AT ENTRANCE TO
THE BOSPHORUG.
Paris,
Atlg.
20.—It is learned in of­
ficial quarters that the action of Run
sia in ordering a naval squadron to
Turkish waters may be speedily fol
lowed by important joint naval action
on the part of the powers. Communi
cations are at present being exchanged
between the powers relative to a joint
naval demonstration before Salonica.
The final determination will depend
largely upon Russia, but if a Joiiit
demonstration Is determined upon tin
fleets of France and Austria will cer
tainly co-operate and it is probable
that the fleets of all the European
powers having Turkish interests, ex
cept possibly Germany, which through
out has not favored taking energetic
steps against Turkey, will take part
in the present demonstration.
In the meantime the Russia squad
ron will not proceed to Constantinople
as has been reported, but will rendez
vous at a small port of the vilayet oi
Adrianople, above the er trance of th
liosphorus. For the present thi
squadron has not orders to assume an
aggressive course. Its action will de
pend on Turkey's fulfillment of the
terms of Russia's final demands in
connection with the assassination oi
Consul Rostkovski.
Besides the Rostkovski incident the
proposed joint naval action before
Salonica is due to the earnest repre
sentations of the foreign consuls at
Salonica, who set forth that their
lives are in danger. The first repre
sentation on the subject reached th
French authorities several weeks ag'
and since then other consuls have
made similar representations.
DANGER IN BALKAN CRISIS.
Lack of Discipline and Insubordina
tion of Turkish Troops.
Constantinople. Aug. 20.—The Rus
rtan demands on Turkey growing out
of the recent murder of the Russian
consul at Monastir, M. Rostkovski
were formally presented at the Yildisr
palace Tuesday.
Notwithstanding the warning whlcl
Russia addressed to the Bulgarian
government it is generally believed
here that the Russian naval demon
stration in Turkish waters will dan
gerously encourage the Macedonians
who, it is asserted, will interpret
®he Jtladioon ftadtr
RUH
aia's action as being the first step to
wards Intervention in their behalf.
The insubordination of the Turkis!
troops is regarded as being one of th
greatest dangers of the present Balkan
crisis. The lack of discipline among
the soldiers is marked. It is found
necessary to humor them to prevent
conflicts between the soldiers and
their officers. For instance, a regi
ment while on the way from Uskul
to Monastir demanded that the trail
be stopped at Salonica for twelve
hours instead of for the schedule*
half hour, so that the soldiers migln
amuse themselves in the town. Aftei
futile endeavors to prevail upon th
men to allow the train to proceed th
officers were obliged to grant theii
demand.
The killing of Bulgarian workmen
who were repairing the railroad traci.
near Uskub is another grave instance
of the insubordination of the Turkish
troops. Details of the affairs show
that a tralnload of Turkish soldiers
soon after leaving the railroad station
at Uskuh, not only fired on and killed
three Bulgarians who were at worl
on the road and left the bodies lyln^
on the line, but some of the soldier^
left the train and pursued other Bul
garian workmen to a neighboring sta
tion, where the Turks murdered them
all in cold blood.
NOW IN TURKISH WATERS.
Russian Squadron Anchsrt* In tb
Bay of Moadia*
Constantinople, Aug. 20.—The Ru^
sian squadron arrived during the afr*
ernoon and is anchored in the bay of
Moadla, off the coast of European
Turkey, between Burgas and the en
trance of the Bosphorus, eighty mile
from the latter.
The attitude of indifference hitherti
assumed by the Turkish officials to
wards Russia's action is giving way tc
one of marked concern. The porte
fears that Russia contemplates mak
ing still more important demand!
than contained In the recent note o|
Zinovieff, the Russian ambassador,
such as the appointment of a Christian
governor general of Macedonia. Thi*
Jdea, however, does not find supporl
in diplomatic quarters, where the con
viction prevails thai Russia Is work
ing in full agreement with Austria
No difficulty Is anticipated on th
part of Turkey to the acceptance ot
the Russian demands, with the pos
sible exception of the appointment ol
the European officers to command thr
gendarmerie. This is likely to arouse
opposition and it is thought that Rus
sian anticipation thereof led to the
despatch of the squadron, the presence
of which was hardly required to e.i
force a fulfillment of the other terms,
