Decoration lay tm eelsbrstwd at the
California Midwinter Ezpoaition in a
manner which was calculated to main
glad the hearU of all old retarana and
their frienda, rather than to make them
tad. In San Francisco, a in every other
lnrge city in the United States, Memor
ial day ia historical. There is always a
firocemion in which the veterans play an
mportant part, and there are orations
and gran viaitingi everywhere. Bat
that portion of the celebration which
centered at the exposition followed on
after the downtown demonstration and
waa of qnite a different character.
Rev. Dr. T. de Witt Talmage of
Brooklyn Tabernacle fame, happening
to be in San Francisco for a day or two
on his trip around the world, was in
duced by the exposition management to
talk for an hoar at the exposition on this
occasion, and Festival Hall was packed
to the doors with an eager listening aud
ience. The well known pulpit orator
had no time for preparation of an elab
orate speech, bnt he spoke extemporane
ously as if from an inspiration. His ad'
dress was said by those who have often
heard him to have been one of the finest
efforts of his life. It had been preceded
by patriotic aim, rendered by the expo
sition band, bnt it was in itself at once
a requiem, an anthem, symphony and
an hallaln jah. There were hundreds of
old war veterans in the audience, and
widows and ophans of those who fell
upon their country's battlefields, and
eywe were wet with tears and faces were
wreathed in smiles alternately during
the delivery of this wonderful speech.
From the exposition standpoint Talmage
proved a big drawing card. There were
doubtless very many people on the
grounds who were drawn here by the
fast that there was to be something in
the line of a memorial exercise as well
as a spectacular demonstration.
The spectacular demonstration con
sisted of a grand afternoon and evening
parade made up of nearly a score of
floats representing different features of
history during the wars in which Amer
ica has been engaged. These floats were
really magnificent creations of artistic
skill, and the whole affair was managed
with great success. One of the floats
represented "Washington Crossing the
Delaware." The boat was in the midst
of an ice floe, and was manned by offi
cers and men in old continental uniforms
t:tl I'varything about it was in keeping
.ith tae subject. Another float repre
sented "Farragufs Flagship" at the bat
tle of Mobile. This was an exact repro
duction of the famous old war vessel,
and a man looking for all the world like
the pictures of the admiral stood in the
rigging and gave his commands to a real
sailor crew. Another float represented
the "Surrender of Vera Cruz." There
was a tent surrounded with shrubbery;
the Mexican and American flags, the
soldiery of both armies and all the ap
purtenances for historical precision.
In. addition to these floats represent
ing individual historical incidents, there
was an immense float called "A Tribute
to the Dead," entirely draped in mourn
ing, bat relieved from utter sombsmess
by 48 beautifully dressed children and a
Goddess of Liberty, each child bearing
a floral wreath on which was the name
of one of the states or territories of the
United States. Another float represent
ed "The Soldier's Return. " On it was
a cabin with trees and shrubbery in the
dooryard, the anxious wife and ohildren
peering from the portal and the soldier
coming back from the war, battle-scarred
bat crowned with victory.
Then were other allegorical as well as
historical floats in the parade. One of
these represented "The Triumphs of
War. This was in the form of a floral
arch containing twenty scrolls, upon
eaoh of which was the name of a leading
American general This float was pro
fusely decorated with flowers of every
tort, as indeed were all the other floats.
Flowers were utilised on every hand
and the entire parade was as much a
floral display as the grand festival a fort
night earlier. A great deal of interest
also centered in a float representing the
AmDnlanoe semoe, wbere a part of an
old ruin had been improvised into a Held
hospital and where doctors and nurses
were ready to operate upon the wounded.
Other floats were "Crowning of the Vic
tors, "Cadets and Marines, "and "The
Battle of Big Tree, " the latter represent
ing a scene during the recent Indian
wars with real Indians in ambush be
hind trees, brash, rocks, etc., with an
attacking party of white soldiery in the
This parade moved round and round
(he grand central court of the exposition,
starting at t M p. m. Three bands war
in the parade and an escort of military
toeaohfioat The scene was decidedly
impressive and one of the most interest
ing thus far witnessed at the exposition.
In the evening the parade was repeated
mith the added effects of illuminations.
Forty-two platforms had been erected
around the central sonrt and red fire
and other fireworks wen discharged
from these during the entire time of the
parade. The wonderful Boaet Electric
(Heel Tower was brilliantly illuminated
at the same time also, and the entire
electrical Illumination ef the exposition
was all in foros. The result was ths
grandest Illumination ever seen on ttx
Pacific Coast The central court was as
light as day, with all the added beaatiet
ef color, and those who witnessed thai
demonstration agreed that it surpassed
any previous effort of the kind that had
been attempted is connection with the
