Only the weather, the only feature over wbieh the local committee has no control, re- mains in doubt A thunder storm yes- gave temporary relief by sending the mercury down a 'few notches, but ii soon went back to its old .figures and with it came a .humidity of the atmo- sphere that was more oppressive and greater to be feared than the, scorching rays of the sun. Unless the relief indi- cated in the signal service reports opmes the parade will be less-- imposing than had been anticipated, for hurdreds, if not thousands, whose-sympathies are heart and soul with the" demonstration, will conclude that discretion is the bet- ter part of valor and leave the parading to those who may be willing to take the chances. Very few strangers arriVed in town during the day and evening, but, accord- ing- to the reports of the. railroad people, they will commence coming in- with a rush at daybreak. The decorationa while lavish are. mainly confined to the stars and stripes and tri-cplored stream- ers, with here and there a lithograph or bust of the deceased Vicei President There has been no attempt at novel or artistic effects.
