Children Walked Barefooted In the
i-araue and Men Made Poor At
tempts at Uniformlng-The Stars and
Stripes Carried Beside Erin's Flag;.
Dublin, Oct. 11
sixth anniversarv nf thQ
Charles Stewart Parnell. Five thousand
.a-iiuHaiisis paraded the streets to the
bleak Glasnevin cemetery, where they
heaped high the grave of their famous
and lamented leader with flawo
brought from all the
land. .
The demonstration Was linimio Tn
vious demonstrations have had strictly
a. tunerai cnaracter, rJut in accordance
with the decision of" the leaders, that
of yesterday was divested of all the
trappings and the suits of woe and cnn.
verted into a triumphal procession, live
iy national airs replacing dirges.
J.ne country people were brought in
by crowded excursion trains. On thir
hats they wore ivy. and shamrocks in
stead of crape. It was emphatically the
people s day, for the aristocracy held
coldly aloof. No flags were raised on
tne public buildings along the line of
march, and only a few houses of thf
poor displayed decorationk The novertv
xf Ireland was exhibited not only by
tne cnuaren who walked in their bare
feet, but in the attempts at uniform for
the processionists, who seldom achieved
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 ear was the most con
spicious feature. It was drawn by four
coal black horses, and upon it were
piled wreaths and crosses, a veritable
mass 01 white and green stacked as
high as a load of hay. A bronze bust
or arnell surmounted the car, and
above the head streamed a green fias
emblazened with a setting sun in gold.
After this came the members of the
Irish parliamentary party, headed by
Mr. John Redmond, member of parlia
ment for Waterford, the moving spirit
of the celebration. They were followed
by the honorary officers of the demon
stration committee, the staffs of the
Irish Daily Independent, the Evening
Herald and Weekly Independent, dele
gates from the Irish National League
of Great Britain, and then by the car
riages containing Mr. John Parnell, M.
P., Mrs. -Dickinson, sister of the dead
patriot, and other members of the Par
nell family, though the venerable Mrs.
Delia Parnell was unable' to be present.
The lord mayor and corporation of
Dublin, the mayors, sheriffs and muni
cipal dignitaries of Cork and Limerick.
robed in their official regalia, the maces
being Wound with ivy, rode next in
Erilded coaches. After them came the
various deputations, carrying gaudy
banners. ' -
There were more than thirtv bands
In the procession and every county and
large town, as well as scores of smaller
towns,-had representation in county o
town officials, clubs, societies or other
organizations. The. procession was 45
minutes in passing a given point.
: No Union Jacks were carried, but
nearly every county delegation raised
the Stars and Stripes next to the
Green flag. One of the most suggestive
features of the demonstration was. the
predominance of children and aged
people, showing that the tide of emi
. eration is carrviner Ireland's ab'e
bodied sons and daughters to more
prosperous lands.
Though the crowds were so great that
the police had considerable difficulty in
clearing the way for the procession
there were no sheuts or disturbances
Old men remarked that Irishmen seem
each year to have lost something more
of their proverbial exuberance.

Chattanooga, TennOct. 9. The in

LOSS WILL BE MANY THOUSANDS.
The Accident Happened In the Heart
of the Fashionable District, and All
liasements In the Immediate Vicin
ity Were Quickly Flooded.
New York, Oct. 11. A large croton
water main burst early yesterday
morning at the corner of Madison ave
nue and Forty-eighth street, in the
Jieart of the fashionable district, and
wrought such havoc with property,
both near ard remote, that not even a
partial calculation can be made of the
financial damage at present. For
blocks around scarcely a building es
caped Injury by ri.-abtf.vof the volumes
of water which poured into the streets,
cellars and basements. The loss . will
reach far into the thousands.
The damage by the water extends as
far west as Sixth avenue and as far
-east as First avenue. The sewers were
choked by the great rush of water, and
then the flood rose in the streets. The
big water main was probably craekea"
by a blast which was fired in a sewer
excavation late Saturday afternoon.
Then in the night time, when the strain
on the pipe was greatest, it gave way
and the flood followed. The breaking of
the four foot pipe was announced by a
rumbling noise which awakened the
people in the immediate vicinity. Look?
ing out of their windows they saw a
great geyser in the middle of the ave
nue shooting a vast volume of water
into the air, a column so high that it
reached almost to the top of the elec
tric light pole on the corner. Those who
had no view of the fountain "heard a
mighty rush of water., -
For five hours this column shot into
the air before it was shut off at its
source, and in that time 10,000,000 gal
lons of water" had run down the ave
nue and side streets on either hand. All
the streets east of Madison avenue
slope gradually, and down them the
water surged in a torrent, flooding the
cellars and basements.
The most serious damage was done
to the building of the railroad branch
of the Y. M. C. A. and to the Knicker
bocker Athletic club house. In the base
ment of the latter place were located
the dynamos, machinery, bowling al
leys, bath rooms and big swimming
tank. These have probably been ruined
by the flood. The club -officials place the
loss at $15,000. The club house will be
closed until the damage has been re
paired. After five hours the flow was stopped.
Almost without exception the houses in
the vicinity of the break .were so flooded
that they have been damaged from $500
to $2,0CO-each. The residence -'.'of '-'-'J.
Hooker Hamersley, William Eustace,' J.
Talbot and the club house of the Delta
Phi were amonr those most damaged.
The main which broke was laid in
1874. It has a capacity of 2,000,000 gal
lons an hour, with a pressure of 27
pounds to the square inch.

night. Theie were "3 passengers on
board, and the highwaymen went
through the pockets of all of them, get
ting about $G0. The motorman slowed
down when he came to the switch at
Meldrum Station. One of the robber-
jumped on the front of the car, and
with a revolver in his hand ordered the
motorman to stop the car while the
second robber climbed on the rear, endn
Conductor John Andersen stepped in
side and quickly turned out the lights,
but he vras held a prisoner by the man
on the rear platform, who stood guard
with a revolver. The robber who
boarded the car in front made the mo
torman go inside, and then he quietly
searched each passenger, joking as he
went through the car. Many of the
passengers put their money and valu
ables in their shoes or dropped them on
the floor.

nas been advised that an necessary
precautions have been taken to pre
vent the spread of the disease. The of
ficials of the Marine hospital service

existence of considerable-dengue fever
at Galveston, but they decline to ex
press any opinion ofthe development of
the yellow fever at that place..
At Mobile, Ala., there were yesterday
seven new cases in the city and two
deaths. In. the county there was one
death, but no new cases.
The official report of the board of

Instructions For Premier Saasta and
Uncle Sam In the Crisis.
London," Oct. 11. The Times, com
menting editorially this morning on the
O' n situation, says: "If Senor Sa
gasta fails to adopt a bold reform pol
icy in Cuba, likely to disarm American
jingoism, It might turn out to have
been wiser to have left General Wey
ler to finish the war in his own fashion."
The Standard, after asking why Gen
eral Weyler is recalled if it is intended
to continue the campaign, says: "It
seems only too plain that Senor Sa-
gasta's course hardly deserves the
name of policy. It is almost a device
for parrying America's importunate.
questions. We suspect that Genera'.
Woodford presented something very
like an ultimatum and that but for
American pressure nothing would have
heard of autonomy. We doubt that
a Cuban settlement is much nearer.
There Will be more fighting and more
negotiation. Senor Sagasta must walk
warily if he proposes to be more than
a diplomatic match tor the American
Ambassador.
"On the other hand.-the Washington
cabinet has need to be circumspect.
Spain has only Cuba and honor left,
and any open interference with her
rights over Cuba would kindle a fire of
resentment: in which all talk of au-r
tonomy would disappear and the strug-L
gle attain wider dimensions."
The Morning Post, in an editorial,
accuses the American jingoes of "try
ing to force a quarrel with England or
Spain for the purpose of diverting the
attention of the country-from home
troubles, Bryanism and the general re
volt against the domination of profes
sional politicians." It expresses the hope
that Spain, like Lord Salisbury, "will
maintain coolness and good temper in
the face of President McKinley's pro
vocative attitude."

May Demand Miss Cisneros'Surrender
Washington, Oct. 11. The escape of
Senorita Cisneros from the Casa de
Recojidas in Havana may lead to fur
ther complications with Spain. Should
it develop, as it Ms expected to, that
her escape was planned and executed
by Americans sent from this country
for the purpose and given powerful as
sistance here, it is quite possible that
the Spanish government may make
complaint. As she is said to be on her
way to this country, her surrender may
be demanded. Such a. demand would
most likely lead to trauble, as public
sentiment in this country would never
consent to her surrender.
Ex-State Secretary's Shortajre.
Charleston, W. Va., Oct. 11. When
Secretary of State Chilton retired from
office on March 14 last he owed the state
somewhere between $15,000 and $20,000
which he had collected as taxes on
charters, etc. He informed the Incom
ing state administration of the fact
at the time, and asked for a reasonable
time in which to settle. Seven months
have elapsed and he has not paid the
amount due, and an effort is now' being
made to force him to settle. He says
the matter will be arranged within a
few- days. There is no effort being
made to press him hard, the state offi
cers believing that he will pay every
cent without unreasonable delay.

with sprays and washes, and different

that each winter I was worse than the
year previous. '
"Fiu'ally it wa3 brouqirt to my notice
that Catarrh was a blood disease, and
alter thinking over the matter, I saw it
wa3 unreasonable to expect to be cured
by remedies- which ouly reached the
surface. I then decided to try G. S. S.,
and the r. suits were gratifying, for
after a few bottles were used, I noticed
a perceptible improvement.- Continu
ing to take the remedy, the disease was
forced out of my system, and a com
plete and permanent cure was the
result. I advise all who have this
dreadful disease to abandon their local
treatment, which has never done them
any good, arid take S.S.S. (Swift's Spe- ..

disease arid cure it."
