Dul.lin. Oct. u.Y,st(,.day was t,u
sixth anniversary f ,e tl(..llh f
Charles Stewart J'arnell. Five th.-usaml
TSationalists paraded the streets to the
bleak (Ilasnevin eenietei v, where tlvy
heaped huvh the Kiave f their famuus
and lamented leader with flowers
brought from all the eountii-s of Ire
land. The demonstration was unique. Pre
vious demonstrations have had strictly
a funeral character, but in accordance
with the decision of the leaders, that
of yesterday was divested of all the
trappings and the suits of woe and con
verted into a triumphal procession, live
ly national airs replacing dirges.
The country people were brought in
by crowded excursion trains. On their
hats they wore ivy ;nd shamrocks in
stead of crape. It was emphatically the
people's t'ay, for the aristocracy held
coldly aloof. No Hags were raised on
the public buildings along the line of
march, and only a few houses of the
poor displayed decorations. The poverty
of Ireland was exhibited not only by
the children who walked in their hare
feet, but in the attempts at uniform for
the processionists, who seldom achieve d
more than a faded green sash or a
spray of ivy on the coat.
The day was wet. windy and cheer
less, and the demonstration was im
posing in no respect except in its spirit.
The memorial car was the most con
spicuous feature. It was drawn by four
coal black horses, and iq...n it were
piled wreaths and crosses, a veritable
mass of white and sat. en stacked as
high as a load of hay. A bronze bust
of Parnell surmounted the car, and
above the hi' ad stream d a green Hag
emblazoned with a settin-v sun in gold.
After this came the numbers of the
Irish parliamentary party, headed by
Mr. John Hedmond. member of parlia
ment for YVaterford. the moving spiiit
of the celebration. They were follow, -d

New Yor k, t et. 11. A large croton

of w:it-r wnifh poured into the stree ts,
cellars and basements. The loss will
reach far into tlu- thousands.
The da. mage by the water extends as
far west as Sixth ii venue and as far
east as Fi:: t avenue. The sewers were
choked by tlie gn-al rush 01 water, and
the n the lieed rose in the stre.-ts. Th"
big v;iti r main was probably cracked
by a blast which wa.s fired in a sewer
c xc -aval i 11 late Saturday afternoon.
Tha n in th-- night time, v.-hen th" strain
0:1 the j ipe was gieatcst. it gave way
and tla pood followed. The breaking of
the four foot pipe was announc ed by a
rumbling nis- which awakened the
people, in the iuini- iliate vicinity. Lnnk
ing out of windows they saw a
gr".t goy.-e r in the middle of the ave
nue shooting a vast volume of water
into the air. a column so high that it
leached almost to the- top of the elec
tric light pole e n the corner. Those who
had 1 o view of the fountain heard a
mighty rush of water.
Fur live- hours this column shot into
the air before it was shut cff at its
source-, and in that time ld.OOd.ond gal
