The committee ot 100 citlxens has sub

Howard announces that over 1,000 men

General Howard said today that
Commander in Chief Kay had exceeded
his authority when he issued an order
saying that the G. A. R. men should
not march as Individuals in the Dew

"Kay Is not over me, but If he were,
I would consider that his order that the
G. A. R. men should rot march as
individuals In the parade counted for
little, as ho entirely exceeded his au
thority in issuing it."
The convicts in the city prison have
published a special Dewey edition of the
Prison Forum, which will be presented
to the admiral with their compliments.
They will re9t from prison labor to
morrow and Saturday.
