Darkness at last brought relief to the
tired admiral, wlio had stood on the
bridge tor six hours, bowing his ack
nowledgement to the stentorian ex
pression of homage. New Yoi k had never
witnessed before anything approaching
this wonderful, remarkable demon
stration. The Columbian naval parade, '
, the dedication of Grant's tomb and the '
reception of the North Atlantic squad-
ron last fall, all pale before this gt
gantlc ovation to a sailor, who. In a
jingle morning destroyed the enemy'
i fleet without the lose of a man or a
ship. It ts not beyond the mark to say
that three million people viewed the
pageant from ashore and that a quarter
of a million were afloat -
The otDcer of the fleet did not wear
i their showy uniforms, but were at-
tired In "special undress 'A' " as It Is
technically known in the navy. There
were no gold epauleu, no gold bound
beavers and clattering swords aboard.
This was the admiral's order and added
but another to the many evidences of
his unique modesty. The brother and
widow of Captain Grldley, who fought
in the Olympla In Manila bay, and
Colonel Bartlett, with three newspaper,
men, were the only-civilians aboard.
Just as the signal to weigh anchors
was given, a pull on the

It was not until all the warships had

that, with all his geniality, the hero

The sailing of the Thirty-fifth regi

NORTHERN KAiRROAD KINGS.
San Francisco Chronicle.
There are but two of them. James
J. Hill, president of the Northern Fa
cile, i one, and President Charlee 8.
HeUeo, president of the Great Northern,
is the other. The similarity of th
name ot the two roads has led to
sum confusion in the public mind as
to which ia which. In a somewhat un
certain way the Northern Pacific has
been supoeed to be to Tacoma wbat
the Great Northern is to Seattle. Re- '
cently the Northern Pacific has been
buying lota on the Seattle city front,
and thereby haa Inspired the Great
Northern's president to remark that if
Seattle sold another inch of her water
front he would remove his terminals
Seattle is somewhat disturbed at the
menace uf King Hill to remove bis ter
minals elsewhere, and has appealed to
King Mellen to know what he would do
li. the way of recjmpense If the threat--"'
should be carried into execuUoo. To
this appeal King Mellen responded that
what he proposed to do would be tor
tbe benefit ot Seattle, and that it was
no concern, of lis what bis competitor
might do nr threaten to do. The rail
road king seem to think that ' these "
Northern clUes are not large enough
for two roads, and the cities do not
feel strong enough to offer equal
chances to both and to let the one
go that cannot stand competition. The
probable outcome ts indicated In the
following paragraph In the Seattle
"The next strong piece of news that
will be heard concerning this matter
will be to '.he effect that the Great
Northern and the Northern PaclSo
companies have 'gotten together" in
New York and 'fixed up' an entirely
amicable and equitable arrangement
concerning the union depot matter."
This entirely amicable and equitable
arrangement concerning the union ae-
pot mailer win ay-uueso muiuuc
agreement as to rates. So far as the
public is concerned the roads will be
one. The advantages the northern,
country has enjoyed through railroad
competition will be sacrificed tct the ad
vantage of the roads. There will be
two roads In place of one, but there will
be but one schedule of rates.
