THE BRUNSWICK DAILY NEWS. VOLUME 2, NUMBER 203. VETERANS MARCH TO MARTIAL HOT! ' ■ THE GRAND PARADE OF OLD WARRIORS IN NEW ORLEANS YESTERDAY. GEORGIA WELL REPRESENT!D Last Night the Reunion Ended and Once Again the Homeward Trend is Be gun. 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, .T^slawApd,-MMgjl \ '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 Virginia divisions. 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 of gray. 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 erings. During the week the visitors have had one-continual round of pleasure and nothing for their comfort and en tertainment was left undone. The bulk of the visitors will leave for their homes tonight but a large number wil! remain here until Sat urday. Some of the Brunswiekians here are to .remain until Sunday while some few of them will leave in the morn ing. Mills-Paul Wedding. Philadelphia, May 22.—The wedding of Miss Ellen ' Dexel Paul, daughter of James W. Paul, Jr., and niece of John R.

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.

It Promises to be the Most Successful Yet Held. While no formal program for the meeting of Georgia Bar association has been announced several of tlio speakers have already been selectedj and if is likely that the coming meet ing will be the most successful ever held.

There are also other minor errors alleged. This case is not* unfamiliar to gen- I oral mUiUd ail ! grt.’.asi of TOffbot Judge ParL f yesterday cer tainly gives Mr. Lamb the best end of it. It sustains the position taken by the Lamb attorneys and at the next session of the court Judge Parker will hear the case on its merits. If the contentious sustained by Judge Parker are held good at the final trial it is more than certain that Mr. Lamb will win out. GATHER MALE MEMBERS OF ST. MARK'S CHURCH TO FORM AN ORGANIZATION.
