dono in his honor yesterday described
in the naval regulations as duo to one
of his rank But that only impressed
tho mind the more because oven tho
naval regulations inelastic as they
were could not restrain tho pent up en
thusiasm when it broke forth as it did
occasionally in rounds of cheers any
more than it could the boll cords of tho

Arrival of tlm Clilrngo
It was a perfect day though drifting
clouds driven by a strong land breeze
obscured the sun during tho morning
uud the waves of the lower bay were
capped with white foam In tho after
noon tho flying clouds disappeared tho
breeze died away and the sun bathed
the sea in brilliance Very early in tho
morning befoie Dewey left his anchor

give the loudest welcome tho ship could
give The guns were manned the ma

were loosened in honor of Dewey

The Chicagos jackies cheered wildly
as she steamed past Tho Olyinpia re
sponded with 111 guns and the two ad
mirals coining together from tho two
ends of the earth waved a welcome to
each other Tho Chicago continued to
the upper bay and in turn was saluted
by tho New York Only tho flagship of
a squadron salutes on the appearanco of
a rear admiral
The long lines of crazy quilting tho
universal language of tho sea flattered

deal of wigwagging from tho bridges of
both ships thu Chicago dropped her
anchor at tho foot of the column close
under tho lee of Stateu Island Hear
Admiral Sampsons blue flag came
down as soon as tho Chicago found her
berth Rear Admiral Howison is his
MMiior and to tho main truck was
hauled up tho two starred rod ponntint
which denoted that ho was outranked
It was noted that tho Chicago did
not go to the head of tho column tho
place to which she was entitled becauso
tho place was reserved for tho Olympia
and to have gone there would have
forced Deweys flagship to tho end of
tho ship canal
Rear Admiral Sampsons gig was
manned and he went to pay his respects
to Rear Admiral Howison Ho was
followed by the other rhips
Meanwhile the beautiful white yacht

The figure of the hero of the day was
in full relief against the sky as he stood
on the bridge chatting with Assistant
Secretary Allen anil a group of olllcers
lie occasionally turned and smiled and
bowed to the noisy escort Tho Olyin

her white hull with high free board
seemed frail but the ugly looking gnus

TorrKA Sept 28 Commander-in-Chief
Albert D Shaw of tho J A R
spoke yesterday at tho state encamp
ment and was accorded a rousing recep
During the day Colonel Shaw denied
published stories that he desired to head
the Dewey parade These stories are
infamously false ho said I never
thought of such a thing I wanted an
escort of a 000 old soldiers to be a guard
of honor to tho admiral and to follow
him in the parade
Later Colonel Shaw issued a state
ment to the public submitting facts
in justification of requests made to
Major General Roe that tho veterans
be allowed to have the right of lino in
the Dewey parade Colonel Shaw
cites as precedents the places accorded
the veterans at the Chicago jubilee and
at tho reception of tho Tenth regiment
Pennsylvania volunteers at Pittsburg
and adds In tho light of these com
paratively recent parades the latter in
honor olVur gallant soldiers who served
in the Philippines and who possibly
heard some of Admiral Doweys guns
1 could not but feel that the Grand
Army comrades of NeV York repre
sentative of the greatest state in tho
Union which sent nioro men than any
other state to preserve the nation from
ruin were as richly entitled to head the
line of the Dowoy parade as wero tho
comrades of Pennsylvania to lead a sim
ilar civic pageant in honor of cur Spanish-American
war heroes
It gives me great pleasure to extend
to Governor Roosevelt as tho commander-in-chief
of 1150000 G A R veter
ans my warm congratulations on the
just and patriotic stand ho has taken in
behalf of the ageing veterans of tho na
tion in using his influence to have their
just request granted that they lead tho
parade in the city of New York in honor
of tho great Admiral Dewey thus as
suring to our newest veterans that

It is hoped that a force of 10000 Boers
will bo sufllcient to rush the Natal bor

landing of reinforcements It is as
serted that before a year is past Russia
will interfere by creating a diversion in
some portion of the British domains

London Sept 28 A few days now

in the Transvaal The volksraad was
sitting in secret session last evening and
the burghers doubtless had the result of
tho deliberations of tho Orange Free
State volksraad to guide them in mak
ing a decision as to the reply to Mr
Chamberlains latest dispatch which
will probably be handed to the British
diplomatic agent at Pretoria Mr
Greene today and be discussed by the
British cabinet tomorrow
The secretary of state for war the
Marquis of Lansdowne was busy until

oflico A telegram from Naples shows
that the British government is buying
mules then and in the United States
It is said that 10000 are purchased but
it will take a month to get thein to
Africa and a similar time to get an
army corps to the front it is evident
that big operations will be impossible
until toward the end of October It is
believed tho British note will demand
tho absolute fulfillment of the conven
tions of 1881 and 1884 which have been
violated in numerous points but will
nccept a live years franchise

Tho specifications that must lo ad
