The weather on the 17th of September was all that could be wished for such an occasion. The heavy rains on the preceding days had laid the dust and freshened the atmosphere. The sun shone from an unclouded sky, but at no time was the heat uncomfortable or oppressive. A more propitious day for an out-door demonstration could not have been desired.
At an early hour in the morning the streets presented an animated spectacle. Multitudes of people, in holiday apparel, were hurrying to secure favorable positions from which to view the procession. Organizations that were to appear in the line were marching to the place of formation, their bands playing and banners flying, adding brilliancy to the scene by the variety of their uniforms and insignia.
The morning trains brought a large number of people from the neighboring cities and towns. It is estimated that two hundred and thirty thousand persons were brought into the city by the several railroads. Adding to these the large number that had arrived during the preceding week, it may not be too great an estimate to say that the population of the city was nearly doubled on that day. Never before had the streets appeared more densely thronged, and in some places, notably on IIanover street, it was a work of difficulty to open a space through the mass of spectators, sufficient for the passage of the procession. Business was generally suspended throughout the city, and there was an evident determination on the part of every one to make the day a holiday, and give it up to pleasure.
Precisely at the hour of twelve the Chief Marshal gave the order, and the procession moved in the following formation :
