ple, who Etrived weakly to make their
shouts heard above the perfect bedlam
of tooting whistles that accompanied
the admiral ashore and afloat.
The fleet anchored and reviewed the
almost endless precession cf cratf that

and it took hours for the heterogene
ous flotilla to get by. Darkness at
last brought rel.ef to the tired admir
al who had fctocd on the bridge tor six
hours, bowing his acknowledgments
to the stentorian expres- loa of homage.
New York has never before witnessed
anything approaching this wcnde.ful,
roaiarkable demonstration. The Co
lumbian naval parade, the dedication
of Grant's tomb and the reception of
the North Atlantic Squadron last fall,
all pale before this gigantic ovation
to the sailer, who in a single morning
destroyed an enemy's fleet without ' e
lots of a man or a ship. It is not be
yond the mark to say that S.CO0.CO0
people viewed the pageant from a&hore
and that 250,000 were afloat.
The formal welcome of New Vcrk t-
Admiral Dewey was extended In the
forenoon, when the mayor and a, dis
tinguished bedy of over 1,000 officials
and guests, including the special wel
coming committee, called on the ad
miral. The party went cut on the big
steamer Sandy Ho:k, escorted by the
police baat Patrol.
The ceremony, v.-Lieh began at 11
o'clock, was cf short duraton. The
party included Governor McSweeney,
of South Carolina; and McMillan, cf
Tennessee; Arcbbir-hop Corrigan; .Sen
ator Depew, Richa-d Crcker, and some
cf Admiral Dewey's relatives.
Had it been possiDle for Admirai
Dewey to have obtain ed a bird's eye
view cf Greater New York he would
have seen in his honor the greater
number cf individuals ever attarcted
by a sngie man or a single idea. The
estimates of those who helped cele
brate Dewey's arrival run from 2,500,
The land parade Saturday capped the
climax. The city, State and nation
united in oni vast demonstration wor
thy cf the hero of Manila. The earth
trembled beneath the tread of 50,000
men, and the air was torn with shouts
of millions. The naval parade of Frl
day was magnificent and a superb
spectacle, but the wonder of mcaern
times was the great land parade.
Thousands of proud men of our land
and sea forces, militia cf fifteen States:,
and tha veterans of the Civil and Spac-
Uh-Americao Wars swelled the preces
sion and gave it the dignity in size
that it boasted in sentiment. Walls of
people miles long stretched down tho
line of march on either side, a dense
impregnable mass.- Fifth Avenue from
Fifty-ninth' street to tne Washington
arch at Fourth" street, where the parade
disbanded, was solidly packed with
spectators, Who overflowed "Into the
buildings, windows and on the root
lines, sat in embrasures and crowded
Along Broadway, where it crossed
the avenue,, the sky-scrapers were ab
crowded at the top as at the bottom,
and for blocks down the intersecting
streets tenants hung from the windows
and fire escapes, and multitudes of
them were ca the roofs of flats on
their stomachs peering down.
For hours they waited patiently and
good-naturedly to eee Dewey, and when
they saw him they waited cn uncon
sciously fox three hours and a half
while the prioceselon pastel. Far down
this living -line the column marched
while the air was gorgeous with the
mist of banners and vibrating with
shouts of welcome and admiration, the
clatter of horses' hoofs when the cav
alry sabers flashed and plumes "waven,
the rumble of artillery, the snard of
drams, the clear-drawn bugle call and
the blare of military bands.
At the given, signal, the platoon of
police advanced, clearing away the
crowds that Overflowed over into the
street. Some i'.tlle dlstanee benma, oa

Wyck sat beside Admiral Dewey in the
carriage. The front seat waa banked-
with beautiful floral pieces. The pco
pie did not have to give a Eceond

was recognised on the Instant, and the
cheers and hurrahs that had greeted

HELLO, DEWEY 1
THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY.
Hello Dewey! Have a cat!
How're th boys? An'. How's th fleet?
Little weary? Never mludi
You cat! test when you're inclined:
Rest on laurels, if you please;
On a hero's couch of ease;
Not, however, till we've bad
Chance to show you tbat we're glad;
Glad you're not how with the deal
Glad you had a level head
Glad you laid the Spaniard tow
Glad you proved a noble foe!
Glad you kept your record clean
Glad we made you a marine:
Glad you bravely fought and won
Glad for everything you've done.
Glad? By Gad we're glad, my lad
That George Dewey bad a dad:
Glad he had a mother, who.
Ioyal to Red, White and Blue,
Years ago, when he was young
Taught him how to rung by rung
Mount Fame's ladder never xtop
Till, by grit, he gained the top;
Taught him, when he'd won the fight.
How to stay there, on the Height.
Glad to see you, George, but ty;
Don't get spoiled cn Dewey Day!
Dcn't get 'rattled at the noise
Made by millions of my boys,
Most of whom would lead the dauce.
If, like you, they had the chance.
Words like these all men admire:
"Gridley, when you're ready, fire!"
Keep that up! Keep cool, my lad!
We'll raise Cain because we're glad;
You just "watch our smoke,' my boy:
Don't get dizzy! Calm content
Sometimes makes a president.
Hear that shouting? prolonged,
Gecrge, th' whole darned Nation's
Proud of what you did tbat day
In Manila's beastly bay:
Proud of you proud of a fleet "-
Tbat knows no fear knows no defeat.
Of whom the wide world stands in
God bless you, George! Hip, hip, hur
rah! ! !
- Knglwwd, the WorlT PolleaL
The work of establishing an effective
police contrpl over diverse races and
'subject populations la not confined to
Jndia. alone, says William Cunningham
Jn the Atlantic It la coming to the
front in every part of the globe. ' The
-problem of governing diverse races on
the same soil Is the political problem
of the future; and It is one which Eng
land has dealt with In India, with' ter
rible difficulties and many mistakes.
but yet with such success that she does
not shrink from trying to face it In
other parts of the globe. This is th?
meaning of English imperialism; we
see that police control is necessary, I!
toe control of civilization and bar
barism Is not to be a continued curst
to mankind: there mast be stronr
civil authority established to keep the
peace and punish the wrong-doer,
whether black or white, and English
men are ready to undertake this police
control, wherever we are called on.tc
