Either of Pittsburg's two monster parades
yesterday would have done honor to any
holiday. They were both great They vied
with each other in appearance, patriotism
end numbers. Each was therefore the
bigger and better because of the other. If
a little rivalry might have a similar' effect
upon all parades, and go no timber, it
would always be a desirable quality. Of
the crowds that came out on the bright and
beautiluiday, it may be said that they were
larger, without any considerable accessions
from out of town, than any event before or
since the late Centennial had attracted in
Pittsburg since the parades at the close of
February's fairest smile was reserved for
the renewed demonstration of that patriotic
fervor with which all Americans revert to
the days and the
deeds of "Washing
ton. Sunny, and as
warm as winter ever
is, yesterday was as
iV x be out as the multi-
' tudes of paraders
and their friends
could have desired.
There was breeze
enough to set all the
diicf.Varshal Coigrove, myriad of American
of the First Parade, flags aflutter, with
out at the same time sending even the
shadow of a chilly shudder among the peo
ple. It was, in short, a day to be remem
bered, not only as the best celebrated birth
day of George "Washington within the mem
ory of the oldest inhabitant, but as a most
highly favored occasion of public jubilee,
when men could march, and women and
children could watch them, without any of
the ordinary discomforts of a winter demon
stration. Of the magnificent parade of Catholic
organizations in the morning, at the head
of which rode Chief Marshal Thomas Cos
crove, it may be said that the estimates
place its aggregate in numbers at between
8,000 to 10,000 men, and that its appearance
ITS LINE iSD THE TIME IT TOOK.
The lice was formed on "Water street, with
Chief Marshal Cosgrove and his staff estab
lished at the Central Hotel. The order to
inarch was given at 9:30 o'clock, and the
pay divisions, escorted by the uniformed
Knights ot St. George on horses, started
over the following route: "Water to Smith
field, to Second avenue, to Boss street, to
Diamond street, to Fifth avenue, to Prid-,
to Colweil, to Fulton, to "Wylie avenue, to
Fifth, to Market, to Sixth, to Penn avenue,
to Seventeenth street, to Liberty, to Smith
field, to Sixth avenue, to Grant street, to the
Cathedral, where thpy were reviewed and
dismissed. At 10:30 the line reached the
postoffice. It filed by in solid ranks for one
hour and twentv-five minutes.
In the line of Catholic military organiz
ations there were the Knights of St. George
in dazzling red and gold clothes and helmets,
surmounted by splendid red plumes; then
the Board of Erin Hibernian Itifles marched
by. looking every inch of every man a
soldier, with green plumes nodding in uni
son and ranks as steady as the regular
guards; then there were the American Board
Hibernian Itifles, the Polish Guards, with
huge curved sabers massive hats and gold
trimmings. The gleam of brass and gold
played with every sunbeam near and far;
the breezes were alive with music, and it
was a fine parade.

The telegraph poles were covered, from the

ners of the different councils, in colors of
red, white and blue silk, mingled with na
tional flags. Then the bright uniforms of
the bands vied with the beautiful trappings
of the horses. This glarins brightness,
however, was excellently set offby the dark

Dan Sylvus, becamo visible, on the hill.
They marched down the hill on each side of
the street to clear the route for the follow

just opposite the old Dispatch building,
the crowd of people was so dense that even
the police failed to get any further, and it
was at last decided to change the programme
and go up Smithfield street.

spite of that.they succeeded in gettingaway
without doing any damage to the telegraph,
Soon after the procession had gotten well
under way along Smithfield street and a
number of bands had already passed the
corner, there were seven bands audible at
once. Three ot them piayea "juarenmg
Through Georgia," one played "The Old
Folks at Home," another "Annie Laurie,"
another an old German march, and the
seventh the "Boulanger March." This
medley of international music was very
striking as the sounds gradually died away
in the distance to mate room tor another
selection, executed by four fite-and-drum
corps, especially because the latter rather
jarred on the nerves.
By this time the members of Pittsburg
Council 117, marched by, presenting a very
handsome appearance with high hats,
brown gloves and brown canes.
The staff of the members of Council 249,
in white shakos, at once called the Six
footers to mind only that there were no
giants in this crowd.
Ju-stat this juncture there happened a
little diversion in the shape of a collision
between an obstreperous individual and a
United States mail cart. The driver of the
latter wanted to get to the postoffice, but the
fellow, lost in his intent gaze upon the white
shakos, did not notice the cart, and he was
quietly but effectively knocked down,
ffowever, he got on his feet again without
getting hurt much, for he swore at the
driver like a trooper.
Council 150 wore white gloves, and as
they came down the bill with their sticks
over their heads, the gloves looked like
little handbills in the distance.
The miniature Chinese sunshades of red,
white and blue carried bv the marchers of
Council 167 attracted a great deal of at
tention, and caused much fun and laughter
among the people.
MIGHTT ANXIOUS CKOWDS.
The crowds lining the streets were so
anxious to have a look at those ornaments
that they forced themselves .almost in the
middle of the street. But one of these in
quisitives had to pay dearly for his curi
osity. Just at the moment when he stuck
out his head too far the big double bass
horn of one of the musicians hit him on the
head, and, while he was knocked back into
the crowd, the poor musician lost a part of
his notes, which forced him to blow without
mutic. Of course the harmony was not at
all improved by this little accident.
The second division, comprising the dif
ferent councils from Allegheny, was led by
the music of the Grand Army Band, an or
ganization which made the finest showing
of all the musicians in the parade. Their
appearance in blue unilorms, with blue and
red lined tunics, was very picturesque.
Thousands of hurrahs rang through the air
when they came to the Smithfield street
corner, and a young man with two crutches,
who was also anxious to get a glimpse atthe
men, pushed himself so far to the front of
the crowd that he was in turn pushed him
self. "He dropped both his crutches, and,
had it not been for the timely interference
of Davy Smith, the big policeman, the poor
young man would certainly have lost his
crntcbes, and might have been injured.
The Allegheny division was made up of
very fine looking men, and the Pride of the
"West Council did themselves, credit. There
was a drum and fife band near them, whose
members were so anxious to have everybody
hear their music that the bass drum player
smashed the head of his drum, and, of
course the sweetnes. of his bang, bang, was
lost during the rest of the parade.
ANOTIIEK BUSTED HEAD.
There was another performer on the big
drum, who belonged to a band in the Third
division, comprising the Southside delega
tion of the parade. That drum player also
handled his sticks with such lorce that his
instrument was cm.ished; but he got two
colored boys to. carry the drum for the bal
ance ot the march, and these two boys were
the only rolored people in the entire
It was not until a quarter of 5 o'clock that
the last carriage rame rolling over the hill
with the remnant of the paraders. Behind
them the crowd rapidly closed in and fol
lowed on their route. Soon the streets were
again comparatively clear, the street cars
went again to and fro, and the merry jingle
of the Filth avenue cable cars sounded

THE CROWD ON THE STREETS.
Rnilroad Men Estimate That 60,000
Mrnnner Were In llio City Yesterday
They Returned Home nt Night.
TJie streets of Pittsburg were crowded
yesterday with the residents of both cities
and the people from the country. The day
was a perfect one for parading, and the
great public turned out en masse to enjoy
the weather and celebrate Washington's
AThe crowd was not as large as the one that
graced the streets of the two cities during the
days of the centennial, but still it was big
enough to excite comment. It was a diffi
cult matter to determine just how
many people were carried
city by the railroads,
tel registers did not
alarming increase of patronage, and indeed
a Panhandle passengeyigent ventured the
observation that the people on the streets
were from the two cities. He thought more
had turned out to enjoy the fun yesterday
than during the Centennial, and the hotel
books will bear him out.
But many of the people came in from the
country. They spent the day and returned
home at night. Many of them brought
their lunches with them; others soon got
tipjy and forgot to eat, and the balance pa
tronized the restaurants.
It i3 estimated by the railroad men that
the B. & O. road carried 41,000 people into
the city, the Pennsylvania about 25,000. the
Panhandle. P., V. & C. and branches about
8,000, the Fort Wayne and Allegheny Val
ley at least 10,000. It is probably safe to
say that 60,000 people came into the city
yesterday to see the sights. Special trains
were run and extra cars added to regular
trains on all the roads.
The Union depot was crowded last night
with country folks waiting on trains.
Through the watchful 'care of Officers Har
rison and Riley no accidents happened, no
body was robbed and crooks gave the station
a wide berth.
The different trains on the Pittsbnrg and
Lake Erie and the Pittsburg, McKeesport
and Youghiogheny Railroads carried 1,380
passengers yesterday on account of the pa
rades. Six hundred ancLseventy came in on the
Lake Erie alone, and the principal stations
from whioh the visitors were hauled are
Youngstown, K"ew Castle and Beaver Falls.
The 710 passengers on the Pemicky came
from Newhaven, Dickison, McKeesport
The trainmaster, who is the authority for
this information, said that yesterday's busi
ness was larger than that of any time pre
vious, except the Centennial celebration in
CATHOLICS HONOR THE FLAG
With as Much of Pomp nnd Ceremony in
Presenting It as Mechanics.
Thirty-seventh street, above Butler street,
was crowded to an uncomfortable point yes
terday afternoon by a patriotioand en
thusiastic crowd of men, women and chil
dren, who had gathered to witness the first
flag presentation to Catholic schools. The
old school hall was also packed with chil
dren, who were enlivened by patriotic airs
from St. Augustine's Band of 30 pieces.
The presentation of the flag was made by
John F. Schaffer, President of St. Au
gutine Literary Society, whose address was
full of patriotic sentiment, which was re
ceived with enthusiastic cheers.
The flag, which is 9x15, and a beautiful
piece ot bunting, was- received on behalf of
the school by a lO'jear-old boy named
Christian Hartz, whose speech was in Ger
man. J-ne nine iciiow spoKe in a manner
that would do credit to one double his age,
and received as a reward of merit three
Bev. Father Maurit2is made a short ad
dress to the children, after which the "Star
Spangled Banner" was sung while the
band played and flags were waved. The
crowd then retired to the street, and, while
the band played a national air, the flag was
run out from the tower of the handsome
new school building by "W. F. Eichenlaub
and M. F. Hager, the children sending up
cheer after cheer, which was swelled by the
louder voices of the old folks. The chil
dren then sang "America" and "Rally
Round the Flac," and as benediction sang
"Holy God, We Praise Thy Name."
The' flag is a present from St. Augustine
Literary Society to the school, and will be
displayed from the top of the new building,
which'will soon be ready for occupancy.
Rev. Father Gregory had charge of "the af
fair yesterday afternoon, and it was due to
his hard work that it was so successful.

Company to Show
WHY IT MAI NOT BE ESCHEATED.
Grangers' Statistics in Support of Their

Fares to he Fixed and Companies to be Held Responsi

Senator Grady wants the Schuylkill
River Railroad eseheated to the State on
the ground that it has not extended its road
in accordance with its charter. The
Grangers ate preparing some startling
figures, which they expect will help them to
carry their revenue bill. A bill has been
introduced in the Senate fixing the fare for
parlor and sleeping coach travel.
fSrECTAI, TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
Haeeisbueg, February 22. In the
Senate to-day President pro tern Grady
offered a resolution, which was adopted, re
questing the Se.cretary of Internal Affairs
to furnish the Senate by Tuesday next the
report of the Schuylkill Eastside Railway
Company showing the number of miles
operated, its capital stock and bonded in
debtedness. The purpose of the resolution
being to show that the company has violated
the law by refusal to make the required re
port and to proceed against it by writ of
President pro tern Grady, of the Senate,
is going to make trouble for the Schuylkill
River East Side Railroad Company Short
Line, which was projected for the purpose
of connecting the Baltimore and Ohio with
the Reading road in Philadelphia.
FOB BONDING PDKPOSE3 ONLY.
The charter of. the road says a line ex
tends up into Chester county; but it is
claimed that the line never got outside of
Philadelphia, and the increased distance is
only on paper and only for the purpose of
secung a large sum by booming its
The company has not reported to the Secre
tary of Internal Affairs, and no facts nor
figures concerning it can be secured. This
is what caused President pro tern. Grady to
oflerin his resolution on requesting the
Secretary of Internal Affairs to furnish the
Senate with an extract from the company's
last report, showing the total number of
miles built, the amount of the capital stock
and the amount of the bonded indebtedness.
IO BE EXPECTED.
As this cannot be furnished, the question
will be asked why the condition of things is
so, and President pro tern. Grady will fol
low it up with a resolution requesting the
Attorney General to issue a writ of quo
warranto, and cite the company into court
to show cause why its line, franchise, stock,
bonds, etc., shall not be escheated to the
State. The company, he said, has made no
report as required by law to the
Internal Department, as would be
shown, and had bonded the road to the ex
tent of 1,000,000 3 mile, while it was re
stricted by law to a bonded indebtedness of
5200,000 a mile.
In order to appear to comply with the
law, the Senator said, the company had
built a road on paper extending into Dela
ware county. The Secretary of Internal af
fairs is expected to make a report by Tues
day night, when there is expected to be
revelations in the proceedings which will

;FnOM A STAFF COEBESPONDEXT.l
Habrisbubg, February 22. Washing
ton's Birthday was recognized in the House
to-day by a resolution presented by Dr. JIc
Cullough, of Tarcntum, highly eulogistic
of the father of his country. The resolu
tion was unanimously adopted, but the im
pressiveness of the occasion was somewhat
upset by Captain Skinner, of Fulton, who
with mock gravity arose and moved that an
engrossed copy of the resolution be presented
to the family of the deceased.
The Captain, however, was a trifle upset
himself a little later, when he moved that
when the House adjourn it adjourn to meet
at 9 o'clock Monday night.
"Under the rule, remarked the Speaker,
"the resolution will lay over for one day."
Then the Honse laughed again, as it
recollected that there will be no session to
morrow, and the Monday evening meeting
will occur at 8 o'clock as usual.
