AFTER BIGGEST PARADE
Coatinurd From first 11.,,.l 1 .,,.
pected. will be received in a day or
two. All of the delegates who have
not received bailees will receive them
ii|K>n mailing the proper credentials to
the Firemen s Union.
The Harrisburg Firemen's I'nion will
meet early next week to close up the
business of the convention.
March Almost Six Hours
A paraile, the last of which was
leaving Market square as the squad
of police at the head marched in to be
dismissed, was held yesterday after j
noon ns the main feature of the thirty !
fifth annual convention of the Pennsyl
vania fcHate Firemen's Association.
The march .started but a few min
utes after scheduled time, about 1.4 >
o'clock, but the last company did not
pass in review before the State of- j
fii ials and Chief Marshal Holstcin in
the reviewing stand at Front and j
South streets, before 7.110 o'clock. In
fact the parade was of such magnitude !
that tln> last division did not pass off j
Market street, before the electric
signs began to glimmer in the dusk I
of the early evenin.ii. The right of the
line arrived at Fourth and Market
streets, on returning from the Hill, be
fore five of the divisions had passed
It was the greatest parade the city
has ever seen and perhaps the great
est the city will ever see for years to
come. It took three hours for the pa
rade to pass a given point. Fears that
agents of the National Musicians'
I'nion would cause some trouble by
calling the union bands out of line
were dispelled when the agents did nst
show up until after the parade started.
Chief Marshal Holstcin was inform
ed that the agents were in the city and
expected some trouble but he did not
see any one who might have been an
agent until the parade was half over,
'when a man walke.l out to Mr. Hol
tein's gaily decorated machine and (
said, good naturally:
"Well, the firemen put one over on
us this time.''
Old Apparatus in Line
Apparatus more than a century obi
mangled in the line with modern auto
apparatus of all descriptions, telling
vividly the strides, in fire fighting of a
hundred vears. of the auto ap
paratus in the line was of recent manu
facture, while the ancient reels and
pumps were several of them more tlia i
112 years old. One paraded by the
Paxton company of this city was found
recently in a junk yard.
Fast and future fire fighters was
represented and, strangely enough,
both in the same division. The Trivoli
and Taylor companies, the youngest
member of th,» latter company be'ng fit!
years old. and the " Hopie Juniors,"
of Hari'sliurg, formed an interesting
cont ast in the Hope division of the
parade. . Both were roundly cheered
over the whole route. Th,- Philadelphia
< ompany pulled an old-time .engine
while the .lutiiors pulled the old '".len
nie Cameron" which was used by the
Hope company when orgaui-ed a eeu
Another interesting contrast in the
parade was the old one-horse hose wag
on o# the (,ood Will Company and its
new American La France automobile
Hands ami musical organizations of
every description were in the parade,
most every company bringing along a
band or a drum corps. There were few
repetitions in selections played by the
bands, and verv little tangi music was
produced. Not by previous arrangement
. but by common consent most of the
i bands played "Onward Christian Sol
diers" or "The Star Spangled Ban
"ner" as they passed the stand in re
Smallest firemen, tallest firemen and
firemen in every walk of life were iti
the parade, ('rack drill teams mingled
with veterans who had to drop out be
fore the parade was over.
It was the most representative pa
rade ever held by the state organization
as well as the greatest. There is noth
ing but praise to-day for the Harris
burg Firemen's Union in the wav it
handled the parade and the attendant
details of the convention.
