NEW YORK, Oct 12.—The military and civic parade capped the climax of the most successful' series of coasecu- tive public demonstrations in the nation's history. Every thing in this wonderful week of Columbian celebration has progressed in a sliding scale of increasing- merit. The fervor, earnestness and universality of the religious exercises of that "twin Sabbath," Saturday and Sunday last, were followed by the remarkable school and college procession of Monday. That, in turn, yielded in interest to the great naval pageant of Tuesday. But, to quote the official orders, the "assembling, movement and disbandment of the forces of the army, navy and national guard, the organizations of the Grand Army of the Hepublic and of tae various societies" participating- in the military parade under the marshalship of Gen.

The first ana second divisions were to have been composed of 2,000 troops of the regular" army and selected men of the United States naval brigade and blue jackets from the warships in the harbor, but they were left at the port, so to speak. They were left out of the line at the last moment, in order to shorten the parade, and the first grand pageant was headed by the First brigade New York state national guard, 5,000 men, and the Second brigade N, G. S. N. Y., acting as p.scort for visiting militia. These included Pennsylvania troops, 3,000 men under command of Gov. Pattison; New Jersey troops, 2,500 strong-, headed by Gov. Leon Abbett; Gate City guards, of Savannah, Ga.; Connecticut militia, 2,000 men, Gov. Bulkeley commanding; Gov. Russell, of Massachusetts, and staff. These were followed by the grand army posts of New York, Brooklyn, Jersey City and surrounding towns, about 0,000 men, headed by Commander David S. Brown. Then came the Sons of Veterans, Second Duryea Zou- aves and naval veterans. The letter cai-ricrs constituted the fifth division. The sixth was the new fire department, under command of Chief Hugh Bonner. The Exempt Volunteer and Veteran Fire associations made up the seventh division, which in. eluded about 5,500 men, representing New York, New Jersey and Long Island associations.

About 2,000 Catholics 'contributed to the honors which the week's celebrations have showered upon the memory of Columbus in Carnegie music liall Tuesday night. The fact that the direct counter-attraction, the parade of the Catholic societies, took place at the same time accounted for the fewness of numbers.

Archbishop Corrigan spoke briefly and ex-Gov. John Lee Carroll, of Maryland, delivered the oration, At the conclusion of ex-Gov.
