The day was all that could be desired. In the morning the sky was overcast but the clouds soon cleared away, and throughout the whole afternoon there was a clear sky and a cool breeze. At an early hour the diferent organizations were in motion marching to the place of forming in the eastern part of the city. The Divisions formed on Broadway and then marched over the route as laid down in the programme.

"Ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the false
Ring in the true."
