PARIS , August 13 1 a. m. The
town of Vicay has been thrown into a
state of consternation by the announce'
mont of a frightful railroad disaster
that occurred yesterday on the Yichj

between Vichy and Maulita. Itis atatet
that an express train from Paris rat

persons are reported killed and in

vail. Without doubt the facts of lh <
accident are exaggerated. Anxietj
prevails among the bithi
at Vichy , in the absence of exact in
Formation regarding the fate of relations

was hanging over the country at tin

CHICAGO , August 17,10 a. m. The
grand procession began to form at
8:30 : , and at 10 a. m. is just beginning
to move. The streets are densely
packed for miles in all directions. It
is utterly impossible to make a passage -
ago through them. The number of
knights in the city is estimated lit
60,000. Many commandcries have
come that were not expected , and
nil came stronger in numb ° ra
than anticipated. Large numbers of
people were unable at the last moment
to resist the temptation of a cheap ex
cursion and attend the greatest conclave
clavo in the history of Templarism.
The local coramanderici last
night found it impossible to
formally receive all corners according
to programme , but did the best they
could. Crowded special trains were

the crowds much larger than nt

buildings all along the line of mnrcli
and on all the principal streets are
festooned and covered with ever
greens , flags , Masonic emblems , mot
toes and beautiful designs of every de
scription. On Wabash and Michigan

grand divisions and twenty sub
divisions. The head of the proccs
sinti started at 10 a. in. and did no
reach the end of the five milo route a
the Grand Pacific hotel until after
p. m. The tail end of the processtoi
had then only passed out of Clarl
street , where it was formed. Th
procession was therefore just as Ion
as the line of march. The weathc
has become warm since noon , and th
procession moved slowly. Each com

Frequent stoppages are made t

CHICAGO , August 18 1 a. m. Tli
treat Templarparc'do ended somewh :
ibruptly. Mauy of the commaudei
es began to rendezvous as early as
o'clock. The work of forming such
ponderous procession was more ardi
ma than anticipated , requirini ; mo :
) f iho forenoon. This was exhaus
ing to the men with their heavy un
forms and equipments , and when tl :
weather turned suddenly quits wan
at noon , they began to wilt and drc
out of line. This continued for son
time and finally whole cnmmandcrii
began to drop out nnd the parade wi
virtually off. Several cases of exhau
tion or sunstroke are reported amor
those in line , but none , as yet , ha\
resulted seriously.
The evening papers estimate tl
number in line at nearly twenty '
thirty thousand , including nearly or
hundred bands. The number of strai
[ jers in the city , aside from tl
knights , is estimated at 200,000 , at
the crowds who thronged the stree
to see the parade , at 500,000. Aboi
half this number went homo dm

route. Many of * these paople h
paid high prices for advantageousaee
but there waa little co see , save a va

a early breaking up of the procession
said to have been the fact that ma :
commanderies fell into line withe
their breakfasts.
