Canandaigua demonstrated its patriotism and loyalty to the enlisted men by a public demonstration last evening. All honor was paid to the young men called to do their whole duty. A long parade through the business and residential streets called forth many from the surrounding country, and they gathered in the nature of a final farewell. Canandaigua's intense preparation for war, taking for service, as it does, many of the most promising young men, is having its effect, as the crowds seemed to be instilled with the thought that the boys were making a sacrifice for their country.

Professor Legnini, who is organizing an Italian band in this city, has just received a letter from a patriotic citizen, who refers to a matter which the members of the band have had under consideration. He say: "Geneva, December 3d, 1918 - Professor Legnini - I see by the paper that the citizens of Geneva are planning a big reception for the men of Company B when they come home, but I hope the Italian citizens will not forget the four Geneva young men that have been in the American Ambulance Corps with the Italian Army since last June. They work in the thick of the battle and working hard, and on their return home would be delighted to see that the Italian people of Geneva appreciated what they had done for the soldiers in their beloved country. It is not known just when these boys will return, but when they do, I hope the Italian band will serenade them when the train pulls in. The names of those young men are William J. Bolin of Sherrill street, who, by the way, was the first American soldier to fire a gun over the Plave River and was complimented by the Italian officers, and Leon Dumont, Harry Daily and Ralph Brown of Jefferson avenue."

Patsey Maruccia of Exchange street, who has been honorably discharged from the service, came home this morning. He has been in the service about 8 months. He formerly worked as a barber for John Michaelson. He plays the clarinet and will be one of the members of the new band.
