New Orleans, May 22 —The annual
parade, probably the most interest
ing feature of the United Confederate
Veterans-’ reunion so far as the rank
and file is concerned, took place today
and was witnessed by groat crowds
of cheering spectators.
The parade formed in St. Charles
avenue near Lee Circle at 2 o’clock
and began its march through the bus
iness section of the city.
- The point of interest along the line
of march was the St. Charles hotel,
from the balconies of which the pa
rade was reviewed by city officials
and a number of distinguished guests.
Many novel and .interesting features
ftftere introduced in the parade this
year. The line was led by the First
cavalry troop of the Louisana National
guard and the Memphis Bugle corps,
followed by a highly decorated tally
lio containing one young lady from
each southern state as herald and
one as sponsor for New Orleans.
Next came General John B. Gordon
and his staff.
The first division consisted of the
Army of Tennessee department led
by General Stephen D. Lee. Imme
diately behind General Lee and his
staff came the Florida division, which
was followed in turn hy the divisions 1
from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi,
'Walker in command. Car
•uiina division came -.irst, then the
•' division, the Virginia div
ision, the Dstrict of Columbia division
. and the South Carolina and West
The next division consisted of Ihe
Transmissippi department of the the
United* Confederate Veterans, com
manded by General W. L. Cabell, who
was attended by his staff. Behind
them marched the six divisions of the
department containing the divisions
of Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, Indian
Territory, and Oklahoma, and those
from the Pacific division. Following
the last division was the section as- 1
signed to the Sons of Veterans, who
are also holding their reunion here.
The various camps made a fine show
and many of them had entire uniforms
A nnmer of carriages contained dis
able veterans who desired to be in
the parade but were not able
to stand the strain of marching. It
was a continual cheering for these
old crippled veterans from the time
the parade started until it ended.
The parade was dismissed at Canal
street and the veterans retured to
their state headquarters.
The reunion has been one of the
greatest in the history of the organi
zation. New Orleans has lived up to
every promise made the association
and has added to its reputation for
hospitality, and caring for great gath

NEW TOWN PEOPLE OPPOSED TO
ORANGE PARK SITE—PETI
The people who reside in the va
cinity of Orange park are to send
a petition to council asking that body
to refuse the board of education the
use of this park for a school building.
In their petition they say:
“This portion of New Town is grow
ing rapidly and is likely to grow much
more rapidly in the future, and there
fore, the citizens of this portion of
Brunswick are desirous of preserving
the park in its entirety, believing that
at some future day it will be needed
as a breathing place undisturbed by
any adjacent factor and therefore we
ask council to select some other
place in the vacinity and there are
a number of sites which can be pur
chased at a reasonable figure.”
Tho petition also states that the
paaks were set aside for for the spec
ific purpose of giving, people a place
for recreation and rest and not for
the purpose of building any institu
tion, public or private.
This petition is signed by about
thirty-five of the residents of that part

The case of T. Luther Lamb, who
was a member of the police force, was
recently tried before the mayor and
alde,rmen of Brunswick, sitting
as a court impeachment, on charges
preferred against him for violation of
the police rules, and in which he
was convicted and dismissed from
the force, has been certiorari ed to the
superior court and the petition for
certiorari was sanctioned by Judge
Parker yesterday and the same will
be determined te the Decern he' term
The points taken in the certiorari
are in substance, error in overrul
ing Lamb’s demurrer to the charges
for insufficiency; error in overruling
his plea In abatement, the ground in
the plea of abatement being that he
was suspended on another charge, and
was not exercising the duties of a
policeman when these charges were
preferred; error in refusing to strike
the testimony of Clinton Brown, who
testified that the defendant used pro
fane and vulgar language and cursed
without- saving what words were used;

EX-SECRETARY HOKE SMITH OF
ATLANTA, IN BRUNSWICK
Hon. Hoke Smith, of Atlanta, sec
retary of the interior in the cabinet
of President Cleveland, was in the
city for a short time yesterday morn
The secretary and the members of
his family arrived on the early morn
ing Southern trakyand lint at $
o’clock for CunfffSfand, where he
goes for a rest of a week or ten days.
The geniel ex-secretary was seen
by a member of tho News staff and
was qustiioned as to tire present dem
ocratic situation, but Mr. Smith only
smiled blandly and said:
“We will have to wait and see —and
we will have to get together.”
Mr. Smith is one of the most pro
nounced old line democrats in the
south, and he seems to think that the
democratic party will have to be saved
by tlie branch of it, of which he is
such an able oponent.
