GALEsnuiiG, Ills., Oct. 8. President
Harrison arose early this morning, but
wis not early enough to escape the thou
sands of eager people who had assembled
it round his hotel in that city struggling
lor aright of their distinguished visitor.
The president was deaf to all entreating,
however, that ho remain longer in the
city, and stoutly maintained his intention
of devoting the entire day to his soldier
friends at Gnlosburg. He agreed only to
address briefly the immense crowd that
had assembled at the depot to witness his
At 7 o'clock the band serenaded the
president, and a few minutes later the
mayor and city council, accompanied by
the G. A. It. posts and a company of the
Illinois national guards, appeared to escort
t lie party to the train. The march was a
triumphal one, and all Peoria turned out
to do homage to the chief executive. At
the depot the president was introduced to
Hie large crowd that had assembled by
Ma3'or Sparkes. The presidont delivered
a short address, which was re
ceived with frequent and enthusias
tic applause. At the conclusion of
t lie president's address, Elsie Leslie, the
child actress of "Little Lord Fauntleroy"
Tame, presented the president a beautiful
bouquet, in behalf of the G. A. It. posts
and citizens. The president expressed his
thanks by kissing the little lady, and
umid the cheers or the crowd the train
pulled out for Galesburg. At Peoria the
presidential party was met by a delegation
Irom Galesburg on a special train. The
president's train, from this point, was in
charge of P. 0. Rice, superintendent of
the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy road,
t o Galesburg. The train was pulled by an
engine in charge of an engineer who was a
member of the president's old brigade.
This knight of the throttle was Frank
Hil'on, a former member of the One Hun
dred and Si-cond Illinois. Near Galesburg,
the president, after according a recention
to the old vetor ns aboard the train, went
forward with Secretary Tracy and greeted
Lnginccr Hilton as an old friend. On in
vitation of the latter, the president and
K-crctary mounted the engine and rode in
the cab with the engineer for a few miles.
To the president the engineer gracefully
3 ;clded tlie responsibility of milling the
whistle for stations and crossings, aud the
iireman considerately turned over the bell
rope to secretary 'lracy. Both gontlemeu
performed their duties so well and so vig
orously that the citizens of Knox county
wouldhave thought several trains were
speeding through their midst, aud that
every crossiug was obstructed by obstinate
herds of live stock.
The principal event of tho day was the
reunion at Galesburg of the first brigade
of tho third division of the Twentieth
army corps. 1 he former command of Gen.
Harrison. The occasion was a gathering,
not only of the old soldiers who were for
merly associated with tho president, but
of Grand Army men from all sections of the
west. Excursions from all the principal
cities within a radius of 300 miles added to
the assemblage, and it was estimated that
the audience which greeted President
Uarrion at Galesburg was not less
than 25,000. At tho depot the presidential
party was mot by tho mayor of the city,
the council and army veterans, and es
corted to tho hotel, where m an hour s re
ception, distlngirished citizens from all
parts of the state and the west greeted
The stand from which tho president re
vied his old brigndo was a lofty structure,
designed to imitate block stone, and was
bedecked with flags. On top of each of
the pillars which supported the arch over
the stand, a young lady stood impersonat
inir the goddess ot liberty. Upon the vast
arch benoftth which tiie president stood
were the words "Wo Welcome Our Presi
ding" Shortly after 11 o'clock, there
passed in review of tho president, in front
if the stand, the veterans of
tl e Twentieth army corps, 2,500
sfhool children of central Illinois,
and thousands of citizens. Anions the

law should be reserved for the turbulent
and disorderly. That is what makes our
communities peaceful, that makes these
farm homes safe. It is not the police
men, ib is not tlie soldier. It is
this great and ali-pervading American
sentiment that exalts the law, stands with
threatening warning to the law breaker,
and, above all, it is that pervading thought
that gives to every man what is his and
claims only what is ours. Great applause
ine war was only fought that the law
might not lose its sanctitv and its sanc
tion. Applause. If we ha"d buffered that
loss dismemberment would have been a
lesser one. But we taught those who re
sisted law and taught the world that the
great sentiment of loyaltv to our written
law was so strong in this" country that no
associations, conspiracies or combinations
could overthrow it. Good, good aud ap
plause. Our government will not fail to
go on in its increasing career of develop
ment in population, in wealth, in intelli
gence and in morals, so long as we hold up
everywhere in the locality, in the commun
ity ana in tne nation this irreat thouirht:
every man shall keep thelaw, which secures
him in his own rights, aud shall not tram
ple upon the rights of another. Applause
Let us divide upon tariffs laughter and
finance; but let there never be a division
among the American people unon this
question that nowhere shall the law be
overturned in the interest of anybody.
Great applause. If it fails of the beneli
ceut purpose, which should be the object
of all law, then let the people modify it,
but while it is the law, let us insist that it
shall be obeyed. Applause. I believe
today that the great rock of our security
is this deeply embedded thought in the
American ncart, that it is not here, as in
many of our Spanish-American coun
tries, which sometimes give their
devotion to a man; but we give our
devotion to a law; to a constitution, to a
Hag Great applause. So it was that in
that hour of gloom, when that richest con
tribution of all the cems that Illinois has
set in our national diadem, Abraham Lin
coln, fProlonged applause fell in that
hour of the consummation of his work by
the hand of an assassin. Garfield, who was
to meet a like fate, might say to tho
trembling and dismnved people on the
streets ot New York; 'Lincoln is dead, but
the government at Washington still lives.'
Great applause aud cheers. To my fellow-citizens,
to all those who are here as
sembled, I return my most sincere thanks.
I do not look upon such an assemblage as
this without profound emotion. They
touch me and I believe they teach me, and
I am sure the lessons are "wholesome les
sons. We have had here today this pro
cession of veterans, aged and feeble many
of them. That is a retrospect; that
is part of a great story of the past
written in glorious letters on a firmament
that is spread above the world;
aud by these sweet children who have fol
lowed we read the future. How sweet it
was in the procession today to see them
bearing in their infant hands the same
banners that thoe veterans carried amid
the shock of battle and dying men. Ap
plause. 1 had occasion at the centennial
celebration of the inauguration of Wash
ington in New York, being impressed by
the great display of the national colors, to
make, at tne banquet a suggestion that the
flags be taken into the school houses ap
plause, and I am glad to know that in
that state there is daily a little drill of the
children that pays honor to the fiag. Pro
longed applause. But, my friends, the
constitution provides that I shall annually
give iuformation to congress of the
state of the Union and make such
recommendations as I may think wise, and
it lias generally, I think, been understood
that this affirmative provision contains
also a negative and implies that the presi
dent is to give no one else except congress
any information as to the state of the
union, and that ho shall especial'"' make
iio suggestions. Laughter and applause.
But 1 would not, on occasions like this,
when I am greeted by friends and fellow
citizens of all shades of thought in politics
and m the church, say one word that
could mar the harmony of this occasion.
Cheers. I trust we are all met here to
gether tod. y as loyal, loving American
citizens, applause and over all our di
visions and differences there is this great
arch of love and loyalty, binding us to
gether. Applause. And now I will ask
you to excuse mo from further speech,
when I have said again that I
profoundly gratelul to the
assured. The clouds were dark in those
days of '62. McClellan was shut up in the
Peninsula; Buell was coming back from
Alabama: Kirby Smith was entering
through Cumberland Gap, and everything
seemed to be discouraging. I think I may
claim for these men of Illinois and those
men of Indiana and Ohio if some of them
are here to meet with us today, that when
they enlisted there was no other motive
than pure, downright patriotism, and there
was no misunderstanding of the serious
purport of the work in which they
entered. Applause, Those early days in
which we were being transformed from
civilians into soldiers, were full of trial
and hardships. But those days were
passed soon and they passed the sooner
when men went into active duty. A seri
ous time came when sickness devastated
us and disease swept its dread swath and
that dreadful process of making soldiers
was passed through, when disease which
should have characterized childhood pros
trated and destroyed men. Then there
came out of all this, after the sifting out
of all those who were weak and incapable,
of those who could not stand this acclimat
ing process, that body of strong, tough
men ready for the march and fight that
made up thearmies which under Grant and
Snerman and Sheridan carried the flag to
triumph. The survivors of some of them
are here today, and whatever else has come
to us in life, whether of honor or disap
pointment, I do not think there is any of
us who would today exchange thesatisfac-
tioil. tl)f rrrp.'it cnmfnrt. we kro in nm-inrr
been a part of the great army thatsubdueS
the rebellion, that saved the country, the
constitution and the Hag. Applause. I
would lay down any civil office latherthan
surrender the satisfaction I havein having
had an humble part with you in that great
war. Applause. Who shall measure it
We but imperfectly see it now. Yet we
have seen enough of the glory
of the Lord to fill our souls
full of quiet enthusiasm. I hope there is
not a soldier here in whom the love of the
flag has died out

At the close of the president's speech,
Secretary Tracy was introduced and spoke
brielly, thanking tho people for the magni
ficent reception and welcome extended and
congratulating the people of Illinois on
At the conclusion of Secretany Tracy's
address, Congressman Grosvenor, of Ohio,
was introduced and spoke Driefiy, after
which the meeting cime to a close. The
party repaired to Kuox college where the
not one in whose heart is not a growing
passion. I think a great deal of the inter
est of the Hag we see among the children
is because you have taught them what the
flag means. No one knows how beautiful
it is when we see it displayed. So here on
this quiet October day, among the quiet
autumal scenes, who has not seen it when
there was no other beautiful thing to look
on. Applause. And in these long
marches in these hours of smoke and
battle and darkness what was there that
was beautiful except the starry banner
that floated over us. Applause.
Now, my comrades aze is creeping upon
us. I do not know that our bodily
strength would endure if another war was
to come. I am sure we would have a
heart for it and for the flag; but it is a
great comfort to feel that the necessity is
not liKeiy to oe lam upon us. I think it is
very safe to predict that we are not likely
to have any more rebellions in the United
States applause. Whatever mischief
may be, I do not anticipate that we shall
have another revolutionary quarrel from
any cause. One attempt has thoroughly
discouraged others. The futility of it will
thoroughly establish as well tlie fact that
the mass of our people will, in any danger,
I do not care what its origin, whether it be
from rebellion or the uplifting flag of an
archy, rise in their might with a weight of
sentiment that like one of tlie great Alpine
avalanches or glaciers, will sween awaj
anything which is lifted "against
the orderly well being of this
country of ours Great applause.
A few weeks ago 1 went from Washing
ton to Boston to witness the meeting of
the G. A. R., and after I had several horn's
upon the reviewing stand and had seen the
veterans marching by under the streets
there came along in their footsteps ten
thousand Sons of Veterans. Applause.
i never was so impressed witn tne actual
demonstration of the fact that there stood
in places young men just such as we were
wnen tne last war uroKe our, just as we
wnre wu 'i uevotion to ii.e country and
ready to step into the ranks when any
enemy, foreign or domestic, assails the
honor of the fhig." Applause.
Now my comrades I want to say to you,
in conclusion, that it refreshes mo to be
with you. Men in public places are some
times set about by those who have their
own purposes, ends, desires and demands;
some of them personal, but not all of them;
and 1 feel great comfort in being here in
the comradeship and society of those old
friends who, I am sure, love me not be
cruse they have anything to expect from
me, but just for good Auld Lang Syne.
Let me thank you for having done
me the honor of again making me presi
dent of this association. 1 hope to be spar
ed and that yon may Iks spared to meet
more than onco again. There may be
times I hope, when my coming may not
attract so many people, and we can have
things more to our-elves. It will give me
pleasure now to introduce any victims you

VISITORS TO KANSAS.
Kansas Citt, Mo., Oct. S. A party of
Loudon and Brooklyn people arrived here
today in a special Pullman car. They are
on their way to Hutchinson, Kan., and are
being personally conducted by Benjamin
Blauchard of Terre Haute, Ind., whose
business interests are at Hutchinson. The
roster of the party is: Dr. ann Mrs. W. E.
Griffiths. Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Nexsen. and
Miss A. Nexsen, Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Pear
sail, Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Kirkham and son
of London, England; Mr. and Mrs. Benja
min Blanchard of Terre Haute, Major and
Mrs. B. R. Corwin, Miss Jennie Corwin,
Miss Jennie Williams, Mr. and Mrs. H. j
M. Lowe and R. Insley of Brooklyn. The
party left Brooklyn Monday morning and
came directly to this city, stopping only a
few hours in St. Louis. The chief object
of the visit is to investigate the noted salt
deposits at South Hutchinson. Kan., with
the view to their ultimate purchase. Three
years ago these mines were discovered and
have proved to be the only domestic salt
able to compete with the British table
salt The London dealers realize that the
foreign article is practically shut out
of the American market by the Mc
Kinley tariff on salt unci by the
superior quality of the Hutchinson article
and being unwilling to surrender this
market to American dealers, intend to
purchase the Hutchinson mines from
which they can supply their American
trade. The negotiations have been nend-
ing for some time, and all that is needed
to bring them to accept is the investiga
tion of an expert, who accompanies the
party. If his tests prove the mines to be
as represented, the purchase of the prop
erty by the Londoners will doubtless be

prairie just east of this city2 not more than
one-half mile from tho business portion of

hundred tents, arranged in systematic
order making the grounds look like a well

through, street by street, many are seen to
be well furnished with floors, stoves, car
pets and all other conveniences necessary
for comfort. Besides these, there may be
seen five field tents and a large pavil
ion. The latter has a seating
capacity of 1,000. The seats are arranged
witn easy oacKs, so none may grow weary
and restless during services. The field
tents are used for various purposes. One

greatly delighted his hearers.
Judge Hanback followed in an eloquent
appeal to the patriotism of his hearers,
addressing himself especially to the young

audience. A funny episode occurred du

Marion, Kan., Oct. 8 Tho Marion
Record was today sold to C. E. Foote and
K. Kuhn. Mr. Kuhn is the independent
candidate for the legislature from this dis
trict, and was mildly supported by Mr.
Whitaker's paper, the Globe. Today the
Globe hoists the straight Republican
ticket, and further, says that in the future
tho Globe will be straight Republican.
This change will make tho Globe the
official Republican organ of the county.
The editor of tho Globe has ever been a
fearless advocate of Senator Ingalls, and
as the Republican nominee for the legis
lature is out for Mr. Ingalls, the Globe
wheels into line and will give the straight
ticket its most cordial support. It is re
ported this evening that the Scimitar, tho
alliance paper, has succumbed to the in

again. Marion county will take her usual
place in line next month.

Arkansas Citt, Kan., Oct. S. The offi

who have been operating for months in
the Cherokee strip, south of this city. L.

ing in this city yesterday, charged with
stealing cattle recovered from a butcher's
pen, but was discharged on a technicality.
He was immediately re-arrested, however,

They are charged with stealing cattle
in the territory and selling them in
Kansas and are believed to belong to a reg
ularly organized gang, who have been
stealing cattle in wholesale. In order to
retaliate, they have charged Cattle In
spector Robert Burnett and Sheriff Gib
son with shooting with intent to kill. The
cattle men are hot on the trail of the
thieves. Several arrests have been made
at Guthrie, and others will follow. The
stolen cattio in that city alone will run up
