        “In the great mass meeting. October 18th, 1884, a route of above three miles was observed in one unbroken line. No cheering disturbed the stately solemnity; no one ran to give any direction; no noise of any kind was heard, but on, in one unbroken line, steady and stately, marched the throng in ‘Bristol fashion.’”—Daily News, October 20th, 1884.
