the official party drove away from the
capitol, between walls of cheering
people, the President again displayed
his tact by remainng covered and Ig
noring the demonstration himself,
leaving it to the admiral alone to ac
knowledge. Fcr Dewey it was a try
ing as well as a triumphal day. It has
been given to few officers in naval his
tory of the country to sit before a
crowd of thousands while the chief of
the naval establishment dilated npsn
his exploits and then to stand before
the same crowd to receive at the hands
of the President a sword prepared
for him at the behest of the repre
lontotlvM of tk Mt people. Tlic
strain upon Admiral Dewey reacheJ
alnioat to a breaking point. But none
of those nearest to him could ree how
he labored to repress his feelings dur
ing the address cf Secretary Long, but
when he arose to receive the sword
from the hands of the President no one
could mistake the flash of the whit
gloved hand as it rose to dash away
the tears before the admiral came to
the rigid attitude of attention before
. When it became Dewey's turn to re
ply, his voice failed him, and be made
the effort twice before his lips would
respond. When he did succeed his
tones were clear and steady, but so
low that only those nearest to him
could hear. There was a quiet but ex
quisite comedy following the trying
formalities that escaped all but those
directly upon the stand. As the ad
miral closed and took his seat he turn
ed to the President and In a tone of
quizzical appeal, inquired. "Now real
ly, don't you think I did pretty well
for an amateur?"
One of the most remarkable features
of the eventful day was the ovation to
Rear-Admiral Schley on the return of
the party from the capitol to the
White lloufe. His carriage was sever
al numbers behind that of the Presi
dent and Admiral Dewey, and he re
ceived an ovation that could scarcely
rank below that accorded to the ad
miral himself. The tumult grew as
the carriage proceeded down the ave
nue and the crowd surged arounti it
till the horses were brought to .a foot
pace. Finally a company of the High
School cadets came to the rescue and
formed about the carriage in a. hollow
square. Thus protected . and flanke 1
by a force of police the carriage reach
ed the White House with a long gap
between it and the next preceding.
The ' home-coming of Admiral -Geo.
J)ewey for henceforth the national
Capital is to be his home was made
the occasion for the greatest tribute
ever paid by Washington to any itfdi
vidual. Arxer the preliminary wel
come in New York, itself unsurpassed
in its kind, it remained for the highest
and greatest In the official world to
bold out the hand of greeting to the
famous admiral, and to Join with the
people who arc to be his fellow citi
zens In, bidding him welcome. The
citizens fcad made every preparation to
make the occasion worthy of tttelr
hero. The decorations were elaborate.
Pennsylvania avenue was one maw of
colored bnnt.pg along the enr.ra .lux
of march from the . station to the
White House, and not content with
this, few private crusens failed to
make some display of color on thMr
residences. Unique designs in fairy
lamP3 dotted the boriron, great search
lights threw broad beams of bright
light across the blue sky of a clear
October evening, and the stately cap
itol stood revealed In all Its. queenly
beauty in the powerful rays of many
concentrated light. The same device
was used effectively in the case of oth
er public buildings within the range of
vision of the distinguished paxtyon the
reviewing stand. The prow of the
