Boston, Mass., August 12. Had the
weather been made to order for the
veterans the condition could hardly have
been more favorable for the big Grand
Army of the Republic ilemonstration to
day than they wer. The sun was entirely
obscured by clouds while a brisk northeast
wind held the flags on the buildings
straight out from their mast and caused a
constant and pleasing, though at times a
rather violent agitation of the streamers
and smaller decorations with which the
buildings were so profusely covered.
As earlv as G o'clock many veterans
were already about the streets and crowds
-of people had begun to arrive in town.
The estimate that 100,000 strangers were in
the citv today does not seem wrong.
Gene'ral Alger has appointed Comrade
John Ryan, or Newton, to bear the head
quarters standard in tne procession. Mr.
Ryan has seen fourteen years consecutive
military service and was with Custer and
Reno in Reno's division when the mas
sacre at the Little Big Horn occurred.
At 8:30 a. m. the roar of cannon from
the fleet in the harbor announced that the
Dispatch with Secretary Tracy, Vice
President Morton and General Sherman
on board was coming up the bay and half
nn hour later another salute announced
her arrival in the harbor. The dis
tinguished gentlemen were escorted to the
Vendome and subsequently Secretary
Tracy and Vice President Morton took
their seats on the presidential reviewing
stand at Copely square.
President Harrison breakfasted at the
Vendome early. Shortly before 9
o'clock he received the governor
and state delegation and the party
took carriages and rode over a
portion of the route of the parade to view
the decorations. After the drive the pres
ident took his place on the reviewing
btand. During the carriage ride the presi
dent was the recipient of many expressions
of good will and respect from the crowds
along the way The great parade was pro
ceeding with all possible dispatch on Com
monwealth avenue, departments moving
on parallel streets until opposite their
places and, thence again to position,
through side streets. The commons and
streets adjacent thereto were black with
At least an hour before the parade was
to start the windows and balconies of the
houses along the line of march and rows
of seats which had been decorated on every
available space were filled with expectant
multitudes. , , .
The sidewalks, particularly on Washing
ton street, from Chester park two miles
down to Adams square, contained a surg
ing mass of humanity.
There wjis unexpected delay in forma
tion of the column owing to the lateness of
the arrival of delegations from suburban
places and the difficulty of massing so
large a force in such narrow quarters. The
parade was ranged on Commonwealth
avenue in the order of seniority, Illinois
leading, Massachusetts as the receiving de
partment occupying the left of the line.
At 11:30 all was ready. Commander-in-chief
Alger, with his full staff . of GOO
mounted men, escorted by the Thirteenth
Massachusetts cavalry and headed by a
corps of mounted police, rode to the head
of the Illinois department. The band
struck up "God Bless the Soldiers,"
nnd at the command of the
leader the greatest military pageant ever
witnessed began its onward march.
The divisions formed with front toward
"WW Chester park but broke ranks and
wheeled to right and left as their comrades
pr-ssed. The naval veterans formed on
Jsewbury street between Arlington and
Berklev streets with their four organiza
tions in the following order: Kearsarge
Associating Naval Veterans, Boston; Na
val Veteran Legion. Philadelphia; Edwin
A. Stevens Naval Post 104, New Jersey;
Farragut Association Naval Veterans,,
Providence. R. I.
The Son of Veterans formed on Marl
borough street facing Arlington and ex
tending as far south as Dartmouth street.
They subsequently fell in behind the
veterans and formed the head of the
Shortly before 11 o'clock General Alger
nnd staff escorted by Cavalry post 113,
Massachusetts, who were preceded by
mounted police, rode down Newbury
htreet atter a short trip over
a portion of the route of
parade and passed the rows of saluting
naval veterans through Arlington avenue
and up the north side of Commonwealth
avenue amid the cheers of the crowd and
the forming organization. After a short
delay he came down the south side of the
avenue the now forming lilies saluting and
bands playing "Hail to the Chief."
THE PARADE STARTED.
It was just 11:80 when thev reached
Arlington street and the parade started.
After the general's escort and staff,
numbering GOO horses, came the
Illinois "department of -which the
feature was Aurora post No. 10, which bore
a transparency with the inscription "The
home of Lincoln, Grant and Logan." The
"Wisconsin boys who followed cot many a
cheer and provoked many smiles as they
carried a badger in a wire cage suspended
on a pole. Pennsylvania, the third divis
ion, was remarkable for the number of old
battle flags they bore, over fifty being in
the line. The old Sixty-first flag was also
theered, and post 123 had the unusual
feature of two small cannon driven one on
ether side of the commander.
The Ohio division was led by Depart
ment Commander P. H. Darling, who re
rtived manv cheers as he passed down
Commonwealth avenue. There were in
numerable buckeyes in their lines, of
which the distinguishing feature was a
huge copper one suspended between poles
nnd bearing the inscription "Presented by
Fairbanks Post Detroit, Mich., to For
bvthe Post Toledo, O."
'New York's leading feature was Post
140 dressed in white nats and unpreten
tious but very neat uniforms. They were
as fine a set of men as is often seen in
line. The guerillas and zouaves were
much cheered, but the boy band of sixty
five pieces from the mission of the Immac
ula'e Virgin, New York City, took the
hearts of the crowd. The Nutmeg state
was fitly represented by a huge nutmeg,
and a colored Connecticut post bearing
axes was much applauded, while G. Van
Hooten post No. 3, Jersey City, was most
cheered of the New Jersey divisions as
thev passed the Vendome. The approach
of the Maine division was the signal for
another burst of applause.
DISTINGUISHED GUESTS ASSEMBLE.
As early as 9 a. m. the space in the vicin
ity of Copely square was densely crowded
and the fortunate possessors of tickets of
admission to the grand stand at that point
were early in their seats. The seats re
served for the presidential party were to
the left and built on a curve, giving a fine
view of the line of march. At 10 a. m. a
carriage drove up and a couple of gentle
men quickly alighted and quietly ascend
ed the steps, taking seats in the
front row. The taller of the two
was General Sherman, the pride of the
volunteer soldiers, who for the first time
probably in his life upon an occasion simi
lar to this had found his way through a
crowd unheralded by hearty cheers which
always greet his appearance. At 10:20
strains of "Hail to the Chief" and rousing
cheers announced the coming of the presi
dent, and a few minutes later a carriage
drawn by four horses drove hastily up and
Governor Brackett sprang out, quickly
followed by President Harrison. The sec
ond carriage bore Vice President Morton
and Mayor Hart, followed by
the carriage of Secretaries Noble, Proctor,
Tracy, Rusk, Private Secretary Halford,
Admiral Gerhardi, Governor Dillingham
and staff, of Vermont; Hon. William Mc
Kinley, Hon. Cabot Lodge, General
Daniel Sickles, Governor Davis of Rhode
Island, ex-Governor Bartow and other
Scarcely had the applause which greeted
the presidential party subsided when the
flutter of excitement broke into
hearty cheers as the familiar face of Mrs.
John A. Logan appeared above the
sea of upturned faces. Mrs. Logan
was accompanied by Mrs. Alger. These
ladies were followed by Mrs. McKee, Lillian
Nordica, the prima donna, and their hostess,
Mrs. A. L. Coolidge. Mrs. McKee was the
center of attraction, quite overshadowing
her illustrious father in her fresh beauty.
Mrs. Noble, accompanied by a friend was
also of the waiting party. TJie party broke
into groups; Mr. Harrison entered into
conversation with Mrs. Logan, gallantly
handing her the small bouquet which he
carried. Just as the chimes of New Trin
ity rung at 11 o'clock a great chorus went
up which simultaneously announced the
arrival of General Butler. The appear
ance of General Alger, who rode a spirited
bay, was the signal for the
arising of Mr. Harrison and
cabinet. As each department came
in front of the stand colors were dipped,
hats raised and in many instances rousing
cheers given for the president, "Uncle
Jerry" coming in for the lion's share of
attention when Wisconsin passed in re
view. REVIEWING THE VETERANS.
At 1:40 p. m. a squad of mounted police
immediately followed by Commander-in-Chief
R. A. Alger and staff, made their
appearance in Adams square. The com
mander and staff were received on the re
viewing stand by General B. F. Butler
and others. General Butler had been on
the stand since 1 o'clock, having come over
from Copely square. Hardly had he taken
his position on the reviewing stand
when the head of the procession
came into sight. Generals Alger
and Butler stood side by side,
saluting column after column as they
passed. After the long march which the
veterans had undergone they braced them
selves for a good appearance as they
passed their commander and r.id finely.
Some of the posts seemed to be in as fresh
condition as when they started. Post 5,
of Chicago, gave the first cheer at a call of
"hurrahfor our next president," and they
were given immediately. Next came a
call for "three cheers for General Butler"
from a Wiscons:n post, and they were
given with a will. In fact the honors
were well divided between the two
throughout the passing of the procession.
SOME NOTICEABLE POSTS.
The entire parade was a series of ovations
for all the departments along the line from
scores of thousands of patriotic citizens.
The largest post in the procession was post
5, of Lynn, which number 725 men in line
and extended from half way up Common
wealth avenue towards "Westchester park
down to the corner of Avington and New
bury streets. AH the post commanders of
this nost are Hying, sixteen of whom
marched on the staff of E. W. Hall,
present commander. Clouds protected
the marching veterans from the sun with
out wetting them while the rain which
had fallen last night made the streets as
hard as a floor. Post 76, of Castine, Me.,
carried pine trees and the three cornered
hats of the continental band of Bath, Me.,
were a feature of that division. A horse
captured from the enemy elicited much ap
plause from the crowds. Nearly every
man in this division wore a silver clam
shell. Prescott post 1, of Providence, R.
I., was large enough to make up for the
smallness of the state and the colonial
uniforms of the Continental hand of "Woon
socket attracted much attention. The
last carriage at the end of the procession
entered Adams square at 7:20 p. m. The
parade was five hours and fifteen minutes
m passing. Viewed from Franklin
snuare. the parade was a magnificent
spectacle and was witnessed by fully 100,
000 people. The grand arch at the head of
the square was finely decorated and was
the center of attraction, especially to the
eyes of the veterans, bearing as it did a
finely executed representation of the battle
of Gettysburg. As the parade appeared in
sight of the Grand Army at the square the
air resounded with cheer upon cheer by
the impatient crowd, and when General
Alger came in sight he was greeted with
deafening applause. Handkerchiefs and
hats were waved until he passed out of
sight. The procession was a magnificent
spectacle from this point, the line of march
reaching nearly two miles in a straight
THE VISITORS BANQUETTED.
BOSTON, Mass., August 12. The Mayor's
club of Boston tendered a banquet tonight
to President Harrison and other distin
guished visitors. The presidential party
was overdue at the Mechanics hall re
ception and after a brief ceremony at the
tables Mayor Fisher, of Walthain, intro

"Mr. Chairman. I wish only to thank
you for this cordial welcome. Being upon
my feet I can not refrain from expressing
here my deep sense of gratitude for all the
evidence of friendliness which has been
shown me during my stay in Boston."
After the address, the president and

the opportunity to see and hear the dis
tincuished persons who were announced
ro Re irtsent at the ioint reception of the
Grand Armv and the Woman's Relief
corns, this evening in Mechanic s hall.
Notwithstanding the strong and
fatiiruinsr march todav. the veterans
awaited the arrival of the distinguished
guest with more patience than could be
expected. Finally, Commander Sheley,
United States navy, and staff came upon
the platform, being followed soon after by
bv Mrs. Mary Morns' husband, the famous
war nurse of Philadelphia; Mrs. Annie
itteninever, national president o the

of the G. A. R.r entered
and soon after a shout announced the ar
rival of General W. T. Sherman, his broth
er, Hoyt Sherman, and Miss Florence
Barker.'the first national president of the
Wonians' Relief corps. Department Com
mander George H. Innis welcomed the vis
iting comrades on the part of the Massa
General Snerman was next to be called
upon. He was considerably fatigued after
the excitement of the day and
spoke reluctantly but succeeded
in arousing much enthusiasm among the
bovs. Just as General Sherman had con
cluded his remarks, the presidential party
reached the hall from the banquet tendered
them by the Mayors' club at loungs. Led
by Sergeant-at-arms Adams, they filed up
on the platform, President Harrison being.
followed by Governor Bracket, Vice Presi
dent Morton, Mayor Hart, Secretaries
Tracy, Noble. Rusk and Proctor,
Congressman McKinley, Admiral Gherar
di, members of the governor's staff
and others. Governor Brackett and
Mayor Hart extended welcome.
Mrs. Wittenmeyer then spoke on behalf
of the Woman's Relief corps. She out
lined the work of the organization which
in seven years has gained in membership
from 42,000 members to over 100,000 and
whose treasuries now contain over $160,
000. General Alger was next called upon
and his remarks were heard with frequent

How a Mother's Story Led to an Attempt
Newark, N. J., August 12. The at
tempted suicide of Henry Collins, a 19-vear-old
lad, who lives in Irvington, a
pretty suburb of this city, early Saturday
evening, created a profound sensation
there, and yesterday it developed a re
markably romantic story.
The Co'llins homestead, which is one of
the oldest and most familiar landmarks in
the village, stands within a stone's throw
of Rahway river, on West Clinton avenue.
rTJi pcfntp ia a vnlnnhlA nnp. and embraces
several hundred acres of land. Fifteen
years ago Thomas A. Collins, tne latner
of Henry, died, leaving his family a
fortune of $150,000. Three years before his
death he had married a second wife. She
was Mrs. Emily Goodwin, a young and
attractive Broaklvn widow, who had sus
tained herself and infant niece after her
husband's death by reading proof in the of
fice of the Brooklyn Eagle, upon which
her husband had been a reporter. The
couple went to live at the Irvington home
stead. The next year a son was born to
them. They had no other children, and,
as his first wife had left him childless, Mr.
Collin's whole heart was in this son, who
afterward grew to be a bright and prom
Mrs, Collins' niece, who was known as
Nellie Richardson, and was Henry's senior
by two years, was the latter's constant
companion, and as the years went by their
childish affection ripened into love. In
July, 18S5, Henry, then a youth of 17, ac
knowledged to his mother that he had
won the consent of his cousin Nellie to be
come his wife. The lad could not under
stand his mother's consternation at his
avowal, and when she advised him in
tremulous tones to wait a little while
Henry readily assented and agreed to
a proposition to go abroad for a
year or two and see the world.
The parting between Nellie and her
sweetheart was a trying one, but with
the assurance that he would return and

ard browned, Henry landed in New York
and made his way home as last as steam
could carry him. At 2 o'clock mother and
son were locked in each other's arms,
while Miss Richardson stood by and sur
veyed the pair with streaming eyes. Half
an hour later, while the young people
were seated in front of the house a ser
vant brought word that Mrs Collins de
sired to See her son. He went to her
room, and was astounded to find her
prostrate in tears upon the bed. The moth
er's apparent grief for a time was uncon
trollable, but finally, when Henry sat upon
the bedside with his arm about her waist,
she told a story that filled him with hor
ror and despair. In substance, the strick
en woman confessed that she was not a
widow when she married Henry's father,
that she had imposed on the lat
tor'a frfr"nlif-.v nnd love, and the
girl whom Henry had promised to

from an ugly wound above the left temp e.
Collins was carried into the house. An
examination showed that the bullet had
not gone into the brain, but had passed
out of the head just above the point of en

prove fatal. Later he was reported as
resting comfortably and out of danger.

to business this morning without the pro
ceeding necessary to compel the attend
ance of a quorum.
Mr. Edmunds presented the motion for a
change of the rules by limiting debate on
the tariff bill which he had offered at the
time of adjournment vesterday, and it was
laid on the table and ordered printed.
Mr. Blair also offered a resolution for
such a change in the rules as will permit
the previous question to be moved after
the proposition has been considered two
days and the same disposition was made
of it. . . .
Mr. Frve asked unanimous consent to
have the senate bill taken up and passed
which authorizes the secretary of the
treasury to settle the indebtedness of the
government to the Sioux City & Pacific
Railway company. .....
Mr. Sherman intimated that that was
too important a matter to be disposed of
immediately and opposed it. The tariff
bill was then taken up. the pending ques
tion being on Mr. est's .amendment of
Friday reducing the duty on tinplate
ware from 2 2-10 cents per pound to 2 cents,
the present rate.
Mr. Morgan resumed his argument
begun yesterday against the increased
duty provided in the paragraph, alluding
to Mr. Edmunds' motion to limit debate
and to other propositions of like character,
Mr. Morgan said that no Democratic sena
tor desired to prevent the passage of the
bill. They had merely attempted to have
a free and full discussion of it a discus
sion which had not taken place in the
house and which was choked off by the
rules of that body and their administra
tion. . ,. .. ,
Referring to the proposition to limit de
bate, Mr. Daniel said that such a gag rule
would be a fitting wind up to the sad and
tragic comedy before the senate. Those
who spoke for the farmers were to be
gagged like Gulliver and were to be told
to speak their five minutes and go home.
"Shame," he exclaimed, "upon you,
American senators, if you can hear such a
suggestion with pleasure or without indig
nation." Mr. Moodv said he was opposed to a tar
iff levied exclusively for revenue on any
articles except those of luxury. On the
question of tin and tin plate Mr. Moody
said that he was advised by a majority of
the finance committee that an amendment
was to be offered imposing a duty (on and
after the 1st, of January. 1S92) on block
oxide of tin aud bar, block and pig tin and
asked Mr. Aldrich whether that was so.
Mr. Aldrich assented to the correctness
of the statement.
Mr. Moody said that there was no pro
vision in the bill of more importance to the
people of his own state and to a large por
tion of the people of the United States than
the provision that would impose a duty of
4 cents a pound on metallic tin. What
ever he could do as a member of the na
tional cougress to constitute, create or
develop manufacturing industries in the
west, he would do.
The tariff bill was laid aside temporarily
and Mr. Allison, from the committee on
appropriation, reported back the houso
bill to continue, temporarily, the appropri
ation for the support of the government
and it went over till tomorrow.
The tariff bill was asain taken up and
the debate on the tin plate paragraph was
Without action upon it the senate, after
an executive session, adjourned.
PROCEEDINGS IN THE HOUSE.
Washington', August 12. Mr. Cannon,
of Illinois, from the committee on appro-
I priations reported on the joint resolution
j extending temporarily, until August 20,
I the appropriation for support of thegov
i ernment not already provided for in the
general appropriation bills already pasea.
In speakiug to this resolution Mr. Rog
ers, of Arkansas, criticised a ruling made
by the speaker yesterday on a point of
order raised bv him.
The speaker's onlv reply was: "The atti
tudeof the speaker toward rue gentleman
from Arkansas has been consistent that
of polite endurance of what can not be
helped." ADplause on the Republican
The joint resolution was then passed.
Before the passing of the resolution Mr.
Cannon explained that the appropriation
items of the sundry civil bill had , all been
agreed to long ao. The only matter up
on which there was still a disagreement
was an item of legislation placed upon it
by the senate, which covered the hind and
irrigation system in nearly one-half of the
terntorv of the United States. Could this
be eliminated from the bill or the confer
ence reach some agreement upon it the
bill would speedily become a law.
On motion of Mr. Cutcheon, of Michi
gan, the senate amendments were non
concurred in to the house bill for the es
tablishment of a national park at the bat
tlefield of Chickamauga, and Messrs. Gros
venor. Snider and Wheeler, of Alabama,
were appointed conferees.
On a motionmade byMr. Dingley.a reso
lution was adopted for the arrest of the
Mr Cheadle, of Indiana, thereupon of
fered a resolution directing the sergeant-at-arms
to notify all absent member (except
such as are absent on account of illness) to
return without delay. He expressed his
readiness to accept an amendment ex
cepting those members who were attend
ing the Boston encampment, but the reso
lution was tabled yeas 107. nays 52.
The senate bill was passed extending the
time of payment to purchasers of land of
the Omaha tribe of Indians in Nebraska.
The house then adjourned.

KANSAS POPULATION ESTIMATES.
Washington, August 12. The count of
the population of the state of Kansas has
not yet been completed, but it has pro
gressed far enough to enable the superin
tendent to make a pretty safe estimate.
Mr. Porter said that he thought the popu
lation of Kansas would be shown to be
about 1,550,000. This is a very large in
crease, the population having been only
996,006 by the last census.
Predictions have been made that Kan
sas would not show more than a million,
but the population has greatly increased,
notwithstanding the various arguments of
croakers. Kansas will probably rank
ahead of Iowa, the latter state showing a
considerable decrease. It will also lead
Nebraska at least a couple of hundred

Gainesville, Tex., August 12. The
election comes off tomorrow, thelSthint.,
in the Chickasaw nation for national ortie
ers, which includes governor and attorney
general, and also the members of both
houses of the legislature. The latest in
telligence received this evenim; from the
different county seats where the voting
will be done, is that there is a fine pros
pect for a general war between the
factions who are known as the progres
sive parties. Hon. William Byrd, the pres
ent governor, and candidate for re
election on the anti-progressive ticket,
has a company of militia stationed at each
of the four county seats in the nation
where the voting will be done, for the pur
pose of preventing the squaw men aud
others disfranchised by the Chicksaw
legeslature more than a year ago from
voting. These disfranchised citizens have
ever contended that the act disfranchis
ing them was unconstitutional, and they
have declared their intention to vote at
the general election next Tuesday
and have thoroughly organized aud
equipped themselves for the fray.
Should the judges of the election, all of
whom have beeu appointed by the gov
ernor, refuse to take their votes, and the
militia should interfere in behalf of the
judges, trouble will Tesult. Several com
panies of the progressive party have al
readv arrived at the votinc places, which
are Stonewall, Oakland. Tishomingo and
Briar Creek, all of which are off tho rail
road. Other companies will go to these
places, and it would seem that the militia
will have to abandon the Held or else light,
and the numbers of the opposition are
largely against them, and equally well
armed; besides, their leader. Sam
Paul, is one of the shrewdest and
boldest men in the country. He is a half
breed Chickasaw, in full sympathy with
the progressive party which favors t e
opening up of the Chickasaw country to
the whites, and the allotment of land in
severalty. Paul says if his supporters are
not prevented from voting that he will be
elected governor, and he means to see that
they are not prevented from exercising
that right, though he has to lead them
thronch blood to their knees to accom
plish the undertaking. It is the general
impression that there will be several con
tests at the polls between the parties on
election day, and may re&ult in a general
Doveij. Del., August 12. Prior to the
assemblage of the delegates to the Demo
cratic convention here today a secret con
ference was held at which was present
Thomas F. Bayard, Ex-Governor Buckley
Reynolds, (tho mot prominent guber
natorial candidates) and a few othijr party
leaders. The delegates from the three
counties held senarate caucuvs. The in
dications were that Reynolds will be nom
inated for governor.
The convention was called to ordor at
1 p. m. and the usual committees appoint
eel. Hon T. 1 Bayard was chairman of
the committee on platform. A motion for
an hour's recess was put and declared not
carried. The committee retired to make
up their report.
Ex-Governor Charles C. Stockley was
chosen permanent chairman of the conven
tion. At 2 p.m. Hon. T. F. Bayard, chair
man of the committee on platform amid
great applause submitted the following,
which was adopted:
The platform reaffirms fidelity to the
principles of civil liberty contained in the
charter of our national government; ar
raigns the Republican administration and
congress for the reckless and wanton ex
penditure which has converted the treas
ury surplus into a deficit; denounces and
protests acainst the action of the Republi
can majority in congress, condemns the
substitution for the high discretion of the
house of the will and autocratic power of
one man who. under the name of "speak
er.' has proved his readiness to exercise
shameless power, earnestly protect against
the force bill, denounce and protests
against the McKinley tariff bill, deplores
the impoverished condition of our agricul
tural interests which is the mnuifest and
logical result of long continued, excessive
and unnecessary taxation; condemnM tho

an e-pecial blow upon every grower of
fruit and vegetables, adding immr nsIy f
the cost of canning and of tin rooting and
of kitchen utensils and even of the hum

use of money at the poll and urgently
recommends the enactment of the Aus

definite is expected to be heard until
Thursday. This so-called Indian popula
tion has in late years witnessed the
gradual transition of tho tribo into
a white race and it has oecome
the aim and purpose of this mixed
breed population to stop the further
encroachment of the whites and to limit
their own numbers so that they may main
tain themselves as proprietors of this im
mense and exceedingly fertile land. They
are attempting to establish a land oli
garchy. With this iu view they have
taken'the first step which is to disenfran
chise those whites who become members
of the tribe by marriage. This was dono
at the last session of tho legislature. As
might bo expected the disenfranchised
ones raised trouble. Tha election to
morrow will decide whether these
squawmen will compel tho government to
take their votes. As. to the rights or pow
er of the Chickasaw government to de
prive the squawmen of a vote, that is a
mooted question. The squawmen claim,
that the government has done an uncon
