M ore people w e re interested in seeing the sun rise clear and b rig h t T h u rs- c l t y m o rning in this city and vicinity th a n in m a n y a previous day. They w e re not disappointed and “ Old Sol” a t his first glim p se over the edge o f th e horizon m u s t have been satisfied w ith th e clean streets and th e deco- Tated buildings, fo r he stayed out all day and Hiked down on th e gayest tim e th a t P o r t Jervis has ever seen in t h e way of a firem en’s parade. If he had stay e d out a t night he’d have seen gayety continued, b u t t h a t is neither here sior there. P rom th e early hours m en in uniform were m o v ing about the streets, and ■the crowd grew and grew as train s arrived from this place and th a t, bearing th e visiting firem en, th e ir m u sicians and th e sisters and the cousins and the jaunts. The E rie depot platform was the busiest little section of earth this aide of Park Row until noon, w h en th e visitors h a d been fo r th e m o st p a r t distributed to th e ir various sections for th e day. F o r th e crowd th e day was perfect, as hereinbefore m entioned, b u t the m e n who h a d to do th e w a lking were reasonably satisfied th a t i t was warm , before they covered the eight m iles of th e line of m a rch. As th e parade form e d a t Ball street and P ike the crowd thickened in th a t im m e d iate vicinity like a cornstarch pudding on the last stir of the spoon. P o t lid cym b als, frying pan tom -tom s, horns and other fiendish im p lem ents o f noise greeted th e firem en here and th e re and out in th e crowd confetti, talcum powder, feath e r an d tissue paper “ ticklers’ in the hands of young m e n and girls who w o re h a t bands w ith such startlin g announcem e n ts ,as *’ I ’m All Alone,” “ You C an’t Get My Goat,” etc., etc. A t no point on the line of p a rade w e re th e p a r ticipants lonesome. From jlerm a n tow n to Tri-States it was one grand ovation for all who took part. vVater was provided ...t s h o rt intervals by good h e a rted residents, and in fact, everything th a t could be done to m ake things pleasant fo r th e visitors and give all a good tim e was provided. I t was, beyoi|!i a doubt, the largest and finest firem en’s parade in the his­ to ry of this city. N e v er before have th e re been so m a n y m en in line, never have they appeared as they appeared yesterday. The m u sic of the bands and the fife and drum corps was loudly applauded -.verywhere on th e line of m a rch, and, in fact, after all was over, it was with, a feelin gof having seen som e thing w o rth while an d attended a cele- jratio n w o rth cojning to, t h a t everyone who saw the p a r a d e gave them selves ip to th e ir own am u s e m e n ts or w e n t to their homes. If there w e re accidents, they w e re few ; if th e re was disorder, it w a s the ixception. K ing C arnival reigned, b u t he reigned for th e m o st p a r t sensi- . »]y and decently, and the police h a d little trouble.
