Hundreds of Thousands View This repressive Feature of the Columbian Celebration, A MAGNIFICENT SPECTACLE. YOEK, Oct. 11.—New York com merce has paid tribute to the memory of Columbus. The vast business of the second seaport of the world was practically suspended and more than 300 steamers 'and tugboats, the smallest of them larger than the scventy-five-ton Santa Maria, the fifty-ton Pinta, or the fortv-ton Jvina, in which the great discoverer and his companions made their adventurous voyage, dropped their ordinary avocations, and formed in majestic holiday parade to do him honor. Viewed by a Great Multitude. And all ^Tew York was there to sec it. Every one of ^thc 250 steamers, tugs and yachts forming the escorting fleet, as \vcl! as each of the vessels composing the naval militia, was crowded with guests. lve\v York became for once a city on the sea. All the points of view in the harbor and along the bay, Liberty : is'land, Staten island, Governor's island, the upper stories and roofs of all the,great buildings in the citv, and both shores of the Hudson" were thronged with spectators. Shortly after 10 o'clock the steam tug Howard Carroll left the barge office, having on board the committee on naval parade and their distinguished guests. The invited guests inelnd ed Vice President Morton, Secre tary Charles Foster, of the treas ury; Secretary Tracy, and Assistant Secretary Solcy, of the navv, Gov. Flower and his personal staff, anc other dignitaries. The steamers Sam Sloan, Mattawan and Mohawk, havin on board the committee 100 and its numerous guests, left the foot of Leroy street about the same time and steamed down the bay. The parade centered and revolved round the foreign naval visitors, the warships of France, Italy and Spain. They had been lying anchored for several days in the Hudson river in the neighborhood of Twenty-third street Some time in the early morning they g-ot up steam, weighed anchor and dropped down the river to the point of reception in Gravesend bay, and there anchored to await events. The vessels were the Arethusa, the flagship of the French Atlantic squadron, which by virtue of its rank led the way; the Hussard, another French gunboat; the Italian cruiser "Giovanni Bausan," and the Spanish man-of-war "Infanta Isabel." None of them is especially a specimen of the modern improved warship. Their presence was a matter of sentiment, not a display of moral force. Kow tlio Ships Sailed. The start was made at 12:30 o'clock from Gravesend bay. There were three columns in the parade, and the distance between each column was 800 j-ards. The foreign ships occupied the :enter, the United States vessels mov- ng on either side as an escort. As the .me entered the narrows a salute of twenty-one gnns was fired from each shore.

NEW Toss, Oct. 11.—Brooklyn bridge was the place of attraction Monday evening, A -gorgeous display of fireworks as 3. feature of the Columbian celebration had been .promised, and at an early hour great crowds began to gather at points of vantage on 1 the river fronts in both cities,' while hundrods at craft, loaded with passengers, were anchored ttt favorable points in the river and harbor. All the high buildings in New York near th« river were utilized, aud those on Park row and other near streets were fairly covered with people. The display fully met the expectations of the people. Among the set pieces WP-S a statue of Columbus and a representation of the ship in which the discoverer set sail from Genoa. Two tons of powder were used in the colored fire for the series of fifteen illuminations, which were accompanied with salvos and flights of screaming rockets, bombs, romaa candles and gas balloons. One of the most striking displays was a representation of Niagara falls in silver fire. This was at the New York end of the bridge. It was 025 feet wide and represented a dazzling cascade of shining silver 200 feet high. There was a novel telegraphic message, written in letters of fire, sent from one tower to the other by the Morse code. , Music mid Oratory. The audience that listened to'Siln,; : .

True Bills Eeturned Against the Homestead Leaders, . Oct. ll.-j-Gcn. Miles, commandingthe Department of the Missouri, in his annual report'to the secretary of war, says that the inspection reports from the different posts show that the troops are in a good state of discipline and efficiency, and are properly drilled and instructed. He earnestly renews the recommendation he made in his last annual report that advantage be taken of the world's fair to "mobilize or assemble. what is known as the national guard or state militia" in connection with ^'"considerable portion of the regular army. Very few of ouryounger officers, he says, have ever participated in or even witnessed the movements of large bodies of troops, and the benefits to be derived from the proposed mobilization are so obvious that he will enlarge upon them. As the general government makes yearly ap- propriatipns for the equipment of the militia, he sees no reason why it should not provide transportation for assembling it in encampment at the world's fair,, and recommends that congress be requested to do so. The reasonable reduction of rates usually jiven would, he says, reduce the cost 'or about 00,000 state troops and 10,000 federal troops to about SS5C.OOO. In view of the great importance of the proposed encampment and its na- ional character he recommends that congress be asked to appropriate $1,00,000 to bo used under the direction if the secretary of war for transporta- ion, camp expenses, field equipments and other general and necessary expenses connected with the encampment.

Editor Ste;:d Urge* That Mrs. aiaybrlcls Sc Set Free—Ho Believes Her to Be lu- nooont. NO. 145. mutiimmmmmmK^ FBOM HOOSIEBDO^. Short But Interesting- Specials front Towna S, Oct. 11.—Editor Stead, formerly of the Pall Mall Gazette and now of the Review of Reviews, has written an article entitled "Ought Mrs. Maybrick to Be Tortured to Death?" for the next number of the latter publication. The chief feature of the article is Mr. Stead's assurance that he has a copy of the deathbed confession of Henry Wilson, who says that he and a woman other than Mrs. May brick admin- stered the arsenic that caused Mr. Uaybrick's death. Wilson died recent- y in South Africa. A similar copy of ;he confession is also ia 'the lands of Sir Charles Russell, ' ;he attorney general Mr. Stead believes the confession and thinks that he punishment of Mrs. Maybrick is Vbout to be.considered by the United jtates government. In view of the >rospective remonstrances from diplomatic sources and the great probability that Mrs. Maybrick is innocently punished, Mr. Stead urges that she be released before Christmas lest she die in prison. Home Secretary Asquith, or the earl of Rosebery or Mr. Gladstone, he says, should act at once to save her from death in confinement. BURIED IN THE RUINS.

Bidden Riches Onoarthod. Ind., Oct. 11.— Consid- - erable excitement has been created in the neighborhood of Waynetown over a welMouaded report that buried treasure has been found by two mysterious strangers who appeared there threft days ag-o and as mysteriously disappeared yesterday. Forty yeai'S agfo » band of robbers, led by old Jason Spray, lived in the neighborhood of Waynetown and became so desperate that the citizens rose in their might and killed- all of the gang, except two men. named \Vright and Newman, who escaped to Texas. It was believed that the robbers buried a large amount of treasure in the neighborhood of Spray's cabin, but efforts made to find it proved futile and the cabin was finally burned and the ground 'on which it stood plowod over, so that the place where it stood was forgotten. Three days ago two men were seen hanging around Wayuetown and both disappeared, one immediately, after returning from the direction of the Erodcrich farm. Saturday some workmen in the fields discovered a long trench dug in one of the Ijroderich fields, and leading to what proved to be the fireplace of the old • Spray cabin. The stones of tho hearth had been plowed over until, they • were entirely hidden. These had been removed by the persons making the excavation and two holes sunk in the ground. Prom one of these it was evident that a box had been taken and carried away, "bat what it contained no one knows. The two strangers are believed to have had some connection with the affair, and the fact that it is now known that they were Texans leads to the belief that they arc the descendants of Wright or Newman, who belonged ;U> the Spray gang, and they thus came into possession of the secret of the hidden treasure. Solving a Murder Mystery. L^POBTK, Ind., Oct. It—The mystery ^shrouding the murder of Mrs. Michael Cook, of New Durham township, has been partially solved by the coroner's inquest, which adjourned after a brief session to await further developments.
