Captain George L. Goodale, con

Boston Captain Goodale was the spe

said Captain Goodale yesterday, tell

entirely over to the old soldiers, and
even great buildings not on the line
ot the procession were magnificently
illuminated. On the day of the great
parade the streets vere crowded with
people, who flocked to Boston from all
sections of the east. It is estimated
that more than 2,000,000 people were
in the city that day. The elevated rail
roads alone carried 1,660,000. The pa
rade was a splendid pageant and was
5 hours and 25 minutes passing the re
viewing stand. The feature of the
parade was the presence in the line of
veterans carrying the old battle flags
of their companies. The tattered flags
of Pennsylvania and New York were
particularly noticeable and aroused the
greatest enthusiasm along the line of

charge of this feature. The waitresses
were metjibers of the different corps
of Boston and vicinity. During the
week camp fires, entertainments and
reunions provided entertainment at
night for the delegates. The ladles of

commander in chief was a striking In

name in favor of that of General Black

The time of the council was occu
pied last night almost entirely with
consideration of street matters. Coun
cilman Helium! had a sarcastic streak
on and his biting remarks caused con
siderable amusement. Perhaps the
most Important matter brought up for
onsiderutlon was the legislation es
sential to the Improvement of Taylor
avenue. Mr. Burns onered an ordi
nance providing for the time and man.
ner of making this repair, which sjie-
clfles that the street shall be 30 feet
wide as far west as the Seaside cannery
and 20 feet wide beyond that point.
Mr. Belland did not like this feature of
the bill, saying that a width of 20 feet
throughout the length of the street
would be sufficient. He believed the
property would not bear the cost of
the Improvement and feared tile city
might be "stuck" for part of the com.
Mr. I.ebeck said the property owners
wanted the improvement as the or
dinance specified, and he was of the
opinion the cost would be lesi than
the estimate of the city engineer
$9147.25. He added that the people of
the west end Intended bidding on the
work, and believed the contract price
would be little more than 17000. Mr.
Belland agreed to suspension of tha
rules, but opposed the ordinance when
It came up for final passage.
The Taylor avenue Improvement Is
part of a general scheme to afford con
nection with the Youngs bay bridge.
Last evening Mr. Burns was author
ized to Instruct the engineer to repoYt
the grade of Sixth street from Olney
avenue to the bridge and this stretch
will be repaired. The county Is Im
proving Gluey avenue and it Is the plan
to extend the Improvement around
Smith Point to a connection with Tay
lor avenue where the city's work will
end. When this general improvement

Crier Ordinance Patted.
The ordinance prohibiting the sale
of goods b'y crying, except licensed auc
tioneers or hucksters, provoked lengthy
discussion. Mr. Belland opposed it.
"It's too much for America," he said.
So far as I am concerned, It makes
no difference to me from what part of
the world a man may come. When hej
lives In America he enjoys the right
of free speech. A measure of this sort
ould go all right in Russia, but not
In the United States." Mr, Lelnen-
eber shared Mr. Belland's belief. Mr.
Burns felt very much the same way
about It. He complained that the
merchants of the city had failed to ap
pear before the council and state their
side of the case, and added, "It goes
against my grain to vote for the bill.1
Mr. Nordstrom said there were two
sides to the story. He pointed out
that the local merchants were here all
the year around, while every summer
outsiders -would come In to reap the
harvest. He believed the merchants
were entitled to the consideration
which the ordinance showed them.
Mr. Belland could not see that It
would protect the merchants. He was
willing to levy a license against Itiner
ants of 1500 a year, with the under
standing that any business man re
maining sis or eight months should be
given back his license money. Mr.
Hansen favored the measure as It stood,
