The Rising Generation Honors the Great Discoverer, Thousands of School Children on Parade in New York—The City "Decorated as Never Before. is COLUMBUS' HOXOB. YORH, Oct. 10.—It is probable that no city was ever so beautifully, so gayly, so artistically, and, above all, so universally decorated as is New York. The citizens had responded with remarkable unanimity to Mayor Grant's request to aid in the Columbus celebration by decorating their homes and office buildings. It was to be expected that the city buildings, federal buildings, hotels, clubhouses and prominent business houses would be resplendent in gala attire, but the ready response of private citizens comes as something of a surprise in the history of celebrations, even in patriotic New York. Some of the residential streets are as gay as Broadway. Kelisioiis Services of Sunday. The second day of the quadrennial celebration of the new world was devoted to religious services. Both in Roman Catholic and Protestant churches the services were of the most impressive character. The most important services were held in St. Patrick's cathedral, where Archbishop Corrigan celebrated high - mass; Trinity church; Grace church, where Rev. Dr. Huntington preached, and the Madison Square Presbyterian church, in which the services were conducted by Rev. Dr. Parkhurst. Parade of School Children. The parade of school children was the first event of the legitimate celebration. About 22,000 children from New York, Brooklyn and New Jersey, each carrying American flags, were in line. About 10,000 of these represented the public schools of New York city, 8,000 from Brooklyn and between 4,000 and 5,000 from New Jersey cities. Results of more than 250 years of educational work were represented in the parade, for the first school founded by the old Dutch settlers in 1633, in that part of "New Amsterdam" now known as West Seventy-seventh street, is still in existence and is called the school of the reformed church. Twen- ;y regiments of grammar schoolboys, of New York, Brooklyn, Long Island and Jersey City, each regiment at .east 500 strong, marched with swinging step and perfect alignment at the lead of the parade. la the second division came thj pupils of the parochial schools, academies and colleges of the Catholic church in New York and adjacent cities, over 5,000 strong, each pupil also carrying the national flag in connection with the emblems and banners of tho churches and academics to which they belong. After them followed ths uniformed schools, and last- the students of maturer years from the different col- eges of law, medicine, engineering and the arts, about 4,500 strong; i.OOO from Columbia, college, 1,200 from the 'niversity of New York, 1,200 from he Undergraduates' college, 250 rom the College -of Dentists, etc. In the third division was medley composed of numerous 'institutes." It comprised Hebrew or- )han asylums; German, Italian and Trench institutions of various charac- ers, intermixed with trade schools, business colleges, military institutes and mechanics' societies, with 1,000 Young Dalton "Volunteers," whatever hey may be, and sixty "Glittering Spears." JTusic Galore. The din of tne different bands was at times confusing and discordant in he extreme, unavoidably so, from the .arge number of bands and the small ntervals of separation. Cappa's fine Seventh regiment bandied with fifty >ieces, but there were also the militarv lands of the Eighth, Ninth, Twelfth, "ourteenth, Twenty-second, Thirty - econcl and Seventy-first New York egiments, all ranging from thirty-five o fifty pieces; the band of the First sew Jersey regiment, the N;ivy Yard iand, numerous private bands and iu- .umerable drum corps. Living American Shield. The girl scholars who were denied 'articipation in the parade were as- igned a peculiarly appropriate and rnamental part, in the proceedings. Artistically grouped on" the • stand in le reservoir square, at the junction of 'ifth avenue and Forty-second street, were nearly 1,700 pretty-faced school iris, each wearing a liberty cap ' costumed ia red, white and lue respectively. . The - tableau had eea so arranged' beforehand that on he approach of the procession almost nstantaneously - the" r smiling, bright- aced children ao__disposed-themselves and their costumes as to present the ffect of the-.-American--shield, with three American flags artistically unched ~6n f eaQh-.'"-si3e' oi it. The uttering, quivering motions of the admirably arranged bands of colors as ( 700 sweet girl voices sang/'The Star- ipangled Basner" and other patriotic ongs, .while. their gallant boy fel- ow"'students tramped past with nickened ffitep .. and ringing cheers, must havei left • a. lasting impres- on.. ::of ."Ehe Columbian schooldav celebration on th« minds oi thousands of the rising generation., On the east side of Union square a like.effective tableaux was presented by 1,600 schoolgirls of the Catholic parochial schools, and on a neighboring stand 300 tiny waifs belonging to the Children's society waved their miniature American flags as the procession passed by. Carlisle Indian Kofi, But the feature of tho parada which , perhaps attracted more attentkrti than any other along the line was the march of; not "six little Indian bor.*," but 303 of them . from Carlisle" (Pa.) Indian industrial school, accompanied by their own band of music rind partly dressed in Indian costume, partly iv: nniform of their school. These sturdy- going warriors admirably illustrated the fact that education and milder and more humanizing methods than those originally pursued are surely and even rapidly elevating in the scale of civilization the race whom Columbus found in sole possession of the country he claimed by right of Christian discovery. Koute of the Procession. The route of the procession was from the neighborhood of Fifth avenue and Fifty-seventh street, near the lower entrance to Central park, down Fifth avenue to Seventeenth street and Union square, thence around the square to Fourteenth street, to Fifth avenue again, and down that thoroughfare to Washington square, West Fourth street and Broadway, at which points the signal to disband was given. Kcvlcwed the Pur^tlc. The presidential reviewing stand in Madison square opposite the Worth statue was pleasantly shaded by pink striped awnings supplementing the fall foliage of the trees in the square. The stands stretching to right and left of the presidential dais and on the opposite side of the avenue tha entire length of the square were thronged with spectators who were admitted by ticket only. At 10:25 the first division came to the waiting crowd. The carriage of Gov. Eos well P. Flower, New York's .chief executive, drawn by a ,pair of spanking bays, drove up rapidly to the reviewing stand and the goyernor alighted, accompanied by Adjt. Gen. Porter in full dress uniform-and followed by Gens. Earle, Barnum, Jenks, Halsey and other members of the governor's staff. The spectators cheered the governor and renewed the cheer ing when, immediately afterward, the guest of the day, Vice. President Morton, representing President Harrison, drove up in an open barouche and was received at the entrance to the stand by Gov.-.ETower,' who conducted him to the seat set apart for the absent. president. It was 11:15 o'clock before the first distant strains of the numerous bands fell upon the ear and at 11:25 the advance squad of splendidly mounted police and the marshals and his aids, wearing gorgeous sashes of the national colors, rode past. The vice president and governor rose to receive them and bowed as each of the well-mounted aids - raised his hat. Next came Mayor Grant and Commissioner Gug- genheiniei', 'sturdily marching on foot at the head of the first division and lustily cheered as they came along. Then came the boys, with, theiv own bands in uniform, marching twenty abreast with a ryth- mic swing and a military bearing- which carried all before it, and company after company was greeted with shouts of applause as each seemod to 'march even better than the company preceding.
