[ State Journal. THE KNIGHTED HOSTS , The Great City of the Lakes AttiredJn-Holi- day Ganrients , A Sea of Human Faces Turned Toward the Mighty Tein- plar Throng- Fifty Thousant-puT ilHantly Uniformed Knights in the City. Five Miles of Plumes' and Sabres. Special dispatch to The Beo. 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 arriving all night , and processions with bands marching through the streets. The weather to-day is all that could bo desired cool and cloudy. The ait was freshened and streets sprinkled by a fine shower at an early hour lliia morning. It is impossible to de scribe THE APPEARANCE OF THE CITY in adequate terms. The decor ations are much finer and the crowds much larger than nt the Grant reception last winter. The 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 Avenues nro sixteen arches or rathei canopies stretched from the four cor ners at the various utreet crossings The memorial arch and the gram master's arch are the most beautiful All the celebrated bands in the coun try , oxccnt the Nnw Yorif , Seventl regiment band , are in line , anc with their varied and beautiful uni forms add variety smd erect to the precession. Competent judges , oh templars , who have witnessed aevorn previous triennial conclaves , say thi parade to-day for magnitude and mag nificcnce has never been equalled ii this country. 12-.SO p. m. It is estimated tha over HALF A MILLION PEOPLE * line the streets , witnessing the pa . rade. The procession moved in thre 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 mandery has several attendants cat rving pails and kegs of ice watei Frequent stoppages are made t qualf cooling beverages. The last di vision of the line will not probabl reach the end of the route. It is prol able that the afternoon programme c rachting and lake steamer nxcursion rill bo slighted by the tirud knight : Phoy will be obliged to rest and n cuperate for the grand ball to-nighl TUB JIONSTER PROCESSION. OFF. ipoclai ditipitchjto Tbo lice. 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 pointed. Thousands who had pos tions on the avenues opposite the e campment were well paid , as thi saw the whole procession , includii Most Eminent Grand M.ster Hui but in his carriage , drawn by s black and seven white horses , tl black horses having white harne and the white ones black harnee Following him were his personal sti In carriages , the whole escorted 1 the Oriental Commandery , of Glen land. But the vast crowds dev town did not see anything bnt f ra mentary portions of the parade terming and about half of the first t visions which passed over the euti route. Many of * these paople h paid high prices for advantageousaee but there waa little co see , save a va jostling crowd. One cause of t a early breaking up of the procession said to have been the fact that ma : commanderies fell into line withe their breakfasts. THE REVIEW. Upon reaching the grand reviewi stand at the interaection of Twel : street and Wabash Avenue , MoatE inent Grand Master of the Grand I campment of the United States , Y cent Lnmbard Hurlbut , of Chica ; led the procession and entered 1 stand , which was occupied by otl grand officers of the Grand Encan raent , as follows : V. E. G. G. , Ben , mia Dean , en Boston ; Y , E. G. ] Theodore S. Pnrvin , of Iowa City ; Y. E. P. , Rev. Clinton Locke , of Chica go. This stand was also set apart fur grand officers of the grand * comman deries of the different states , a large number of whom were present. Grand Master Hurlbut stood at the front and received the salutes of the various commanderics as ihey passed. There was a dense mass of spectators Bitting and standing in the vicinity. RESTING KNIGHTS , During the afternoon , after the dis banding of the parade , the knights gave themselves up to refreshment , relaxation , rest and recuperating. Some went on lake excursions , some roil3 about the cVVy , Homo attended the Chicago-Boston biso ball game , some went to Forepaugh's circus , but the most remained qnKtly in their quarters in camp witnessing the yacht contest. ENCHANTING BALL. The grand musical reception and ball at the Exposition building list night waa in keeping with the general magnificence of the conclave. The building was decorated outside with flags nnd the interior rendered ex quisite with all manner of decorations , lUgs , banners , festoons and Templar emblems in great profusion. At the north end of tho" monster building stood n representation of an ancient castle of the knights , aa largo and natural as the reality. Thi > attend ance at the ball in the early part of the evening was so great that no dan cing could bo done , but towards mid night the floor W.IH pnrtiallv cleared and about five hundrpd couples un- gnged'in n qusdrille. The programme w.is then rried out until a LiU > hour. Fullonu hundred thoiis md people passed in and out of the build ing during the evening and as many more crowded the avenuu outside jr. d viewed the cncl'anting acenu through open doors and windows.
