CHICAGO, Oct. 8. Before leaving this
city Governor Theodore Roosevelt sent the
following- letter to William E. Walton, of
Baltimore, a member of the Society of
Friends, who recently wrote to the Gov
ernor with reference to the distorted end
perverted version of the Governor's allu
sion to Quakers In his hook. Mr. Walton's
letter was written In go.d faith and Gov
ernor Roosevelt's reply is In the same
spirit. The letter, which is dated Chicago,
Oct. 6, follows:
'Mr. William E. Walton, No. 224 St. Paul
street, Baltimore, Md.
"My Dear Mr. Walton I have received
1 your very kind and courteous letter of
the 2d Inst., and am genuinely touched
hy it. In your letter you speak of the
lovers of peace and arbitration, especially
In your own church, saying: 'We are not
non-combatants, and when it comes to
-rr,aistlnlnr hi.honor and integrity of the
" Natlou -and commanding respect for our
loved flap, our people would largely, per
haps as largely as most bodies of Christian
workers, respond to their country's call,
and would combat as loyally as you could
wish any attempt to Insult the flag we all
bo dearly love.
"Surely, my dear sir, I need hardly say
that alike in your love for peace and your
desire for arbitration, and also In what
you have said in the above questions, I
heartily agree. A better statement of the
proper duty of our citizens could hardly
have been made; nor can I too heartily
erpress my respect for all (whether Frlonds
or of other denominations) whose views
you thus put forth. The sentence of mine
which is complained of and which was
written fifteen years ago. was intended to
express my disagreement both with the
man who acts on inadequate provocation
and of the man who on adequate provoca
tion falls to act. It would be untrue to
say that I have altered my convictions in
the matter, but were I now to rewrite the
sentence I should certainly so phrase it
that it could not be construed as offensive
to the Society of Friends, a body whose
social virtues and civic righteousness just
ly command universal respect.
"With assurances of my very high regard
and esteem, believe me, most sincerely
yourr, THEODORE ROOSEVELT.
MP. S. Tou are at liberty to make this
public In any way you desire. I may send
& copy of it to other inquirers."

Speeches at Jollet, Lincoln, East St.
Louis nnd Elsewhere.
-EAST ST. LOUIS, 111.. Oct. 8. Governor
Roosevelt delivered an address here to
night, and was given an enthusiastic
welcome. During the day he spoke at
Joliet. Streator. Eureka, Peoria, Mount
Pulaski, Lincoln, Springfield, Jacksonville,
Litchfield and Alton. Upon conclusion
of his talk here to-night the vice presi
dential candidate was turned over to the
chairman of the Republican state com
mittee of Missouri. Governor Roosevelt
will spend to-morrow in St. Louis.
Governor Roosevelt's special train left
Chicago at 7:15 a. m. Among those accom
panying the Governor were Harry 8. New,
ani Graeme Stewart, Republican national
committeemen, and President Hamilton, of
tho Republican National League.
A large crowd, including local Republican
organizations, greeted the arrival of the
Roosevelt special train at Jollet. Governor
Roosevelt made a brief speech at the
courthouse square, saying In part: "Give

Such evils can be wiped out by cool, reso
lute common sense. On June 1 last Con

was beaten by the Democrats, who said it
would take the only Issue from this cam
paign." A regiment of Rough Riders headed a
large procession at. Streator, which es
corted Governor Roosevelt and party to the

it 3:30 p. m. it was one hour late. Large
country delegations were present. Gover-
Incr Roosevelt and Governor Tanner, arm

were cheered. Both made brief speeches.

A five minute stoD was made at Lincoln.

the appeal I made to every foil and evil
passion of mankind, when every! expedient
of mendacity and Invective is resorted to
by the chiefs of a great party, whether
through their platform or on the 6tump,
or by some newspaper which is itself a
foul plague spot on the body politic, it is
well to keep in mind that the responsibility
for any disorder or mob violence which
follows lies less with the people who make
the disturbance and who may have to pay
the penalty, than with those who, sitting at
ease In a place of safety, have done all
they could to. excite not only the vicious,
but the well-meaning Ignorant to actions
which discredit our civilization." '
At Litchfield the largest audience assem
bled there since the McKinley-Bryan cam
paign of four years ago greeted Colonel
Roosevelt. He betrayed no token of weari
ness, notwithstanding he had made
speeches at many towns in the State en
route, the most notable of which was at
Springfield. There the Governor refrained
from discussing finance, trusts and such
topics, devoting himself exclusively to the
life achievements of Abraham Lincoln, of
whom he said: "He sacrificed himself in
death that his people should know not only
liberty, but the union that symbolized or
der as well. Fundamentally every great
question that arises can be solved by fol
lowing his advance. Lincoln came to prom
inence by his great debate with Douglas,
when they were opposed to one another,
but when the honor of the flag was at
r.SAke Douglas turned and upheld the
aands of his rival. So we have a right to
appeal to the Democrats to-day to put pa
triotism above partisanship."
At Jacksonville, the home of Judge Rich
ard Yates, Republican candidate for Gov
ernor of Illinois, there was an Immense
crowd. Judge Yates Introduced Governor
Roosevelt, who spoke briefly and hurriedly
returned to his train.
On his arrival at Alton Governor Roose
velt was greeted by a large body of citizens
and organizations bearing flambeaux. A
feature was the presence of sixty marines
and thirty former members of the regular
army, all of the latter having served under
Governor Roosevelt at Santiago.
SALUTED AS THEY PASSED.
Immediately south of East St. Louis the
train was stopped for orders. An incident
of interest transpired at this point. It was
the arrival and stopping of William Jen

for orders. The candidates did not see
each other until their respective cars were
passing slowly, but as they passed they
recognized each other in the dim light from
the car windows, and each leaning for

perity Speech by Ambassador
White at Ithaca.
CHICAGO, Oct. 8. Senator Chauncey M.
Depew addressed a large audience of Re
publicans to-night, his speech being de
livered under the auspices of the Mar
quette Club, a strong Republican organi
zation. The club had erected a large tent
at North Clark street and North avenue,
capable of seating 4,000 people and it
was completely filled when Senator Depew
commenced his speech. The senator spoke
in his usual happy manner and his good
humored thrusts were received with great
applause. He made a hit with hie audi
ence by declaring that Mr. Bryan did not
deny the abundant prosperity of the
country he claimed it was Intoxicated
with prosperity and that If he Is elected he
would do away with the intoxicant. He
spoke In part as follows:
"Having proved himself such a colossal
failure as a prophet in li&G, we can hardly
believe in 1900 that Colonel Bryan has now
the real mantle of Elijah. The difficulties
J with the terrors which he depicts from Re
publican principles and policies is that
they have all been tested, both under Re
publican and Democratic administrations.
Protection of American Industries has
given America to Americans and sent forth
our products to the conquest of the mar
kets of the world. The gold standard of
value has divorced us from Mexico and
China, has placed us in commercial rela
tions with and upon the same commercial
basis as the great industrial nations of
Christendom. It has given stability to our
credit; it has made the American dollar
recognized upon an iqual value with the
English sovereign, or the French louls
everywhere around t'e globe; it has given
steadiness to our business, unexampled
credit to our government and is rapidly
making us the creditor among nations.
"The terror of imperialism is a boast. I
mean American imperialism. It has been
tried for a hundred years. It was practiced
by Washington; it was tested upon an
enormous scale by Jefferson: it was put in
operation by Monroe. Jackson. Polk and
Pierce. All gave it their sanction; all of
them, to the great glory and power of our
country pursued the same path of imperial
ism which is now being trod by President
"American militarism which Mr. Bryan
so much fears and from which he prophe
sies such dreadful results, was also tried
by Jefferson in Louisiana, by Jackson in
Florida: by every administration in newly
acquired territories from time to time with
no other results than their pacification, the
restoration of peace, the opening of courts
and the protection of life, liberty and
property for the citizen.
"The only party which has ever attempt
ed to meet the trust issue is the Repub
lican party. It enacted the Sherman anti
trust law, which Js the only effective law
upon the books upon that subject. It passed
the constitutional amendment In the last
House of Representatives, with every Dem
ocratic vote except seven against it. I look
in vain through the speeches of Mr. Bryan
or any of the Democratic orators for a
definition of a trust or how to control it.
"The principles of the Republican party
have made its administrations state build
ers, while the Democratic leaders are
archaeologists. The reconstruction of the
States, the protection of American indus
tries, the resumption of specie payment, the
adoption of a standard of value In harmony
with the commercial nations of the world

firm foundations that we can borrow money

WASHINGTON, Oct. 8. Minister Wu to
day delivered to the State Department a
telegram from Viceroys Liu Kun Yip and
Chang Chlh Tung, who are to assist LI
Hung Chang and Prlnco Chlng In the
treaty negotiations. This telegram was
sent Oct. 4 to the Chinese minister at St.
Petersburg, and by him transmitted to
Minister Wu. who received it last night.
It explained that their Imperial Majesties
have retired from Tal-Yuen, capital of the
province of Shan-SI, to Si-Ngan, capital of
tho province of Shen-Sl. The reason as
signed is lack of food and the general de
moralization of affairs in Tai-Yuen, owing
to the depredations of what the telegram
styles the "Boxer rebels." The telegram
further states that their Imperial Majesties
temporarily postpone their return to Pe
king because of the presence there of the
allied forces and of a dread of epidemic
diseases which, the telegram says, "usu
ally follow after great disturbances, de
struction of property and military opera
tions." This is the Chinese version of the
movement of the Imperial court that gave
rise to the Japanese report that the Imper
ial authorities had abandoned Peking, and
would hereafter hold their court and es
tablish the Chinese capital at Si-Ngan. The
telegram of the viceroys certainly holds
out a veiled Intimation to that effect, and
It seems altogether probable that at least
the treaty negotiations will have to be car
ried on with the Imperial court in the com
paratively safe retreat of Si-Ngan, from
which it will not emerge until the whole
trouble is settled. Meantime this govern
ment Is urging the other powers to hasten
the beginning of the negotiations, so that
the day of final settlement may not be un
duly delayed. The text of the dispatch re
ceived by Minister Wu follows:
"The departure of their Imperial Majes
ties from Shan-Si (province) was due to
distressing conditions at Tal-Yuh-Fu. There
is a scarcity of food supplies in the prov
ince of Shan-SI on account of long-continued
drought, and the provincial capital,
Tai-Yuen, is also deserted, the trades peo
ple having left on account of the disturb
ances caused and continued for months by
the Boxer rebels who had Invaded that
province with the encouragement of Gov
ernor Yu. Their Majesties, therefore, were
obliged to proceed to Shen-Sl, where tele
graphic communication with Shanghai and
other parts of the empire is opened and
rapid communication with their Majesties
may, therefore, be carried on. Thus court
and official business may be transacted
more expeditiously by their presence in
Shan-Si rather than in Shen-Si. The rea
sons for the temporary postponement of
their Majesties' return to Peking are the
presence of the allied forces there, on ac
count of which solicitous fear is doubtless
entertained, besides a dread of the outbreak
of epidemic diseases which usually follow
after great disturbances, destruction of
property and military operations. It Is
hoped that the powers will be considerate
In their Judgment in this matter."
The Important feature of the message is
the confession that the court is restrained
by fear of the allied forces from return
lng to Peking. The movement takes the
Emperor and Empress dowager about three
hundred miles further away from Peking,
though, according to the statements con
tained In the message, by reason of direct
telegraphic communication with Shanghai,
the court practically will be nearer for
purposes of negotiation with the outside
world than It was at Tai-Yuen.
Minister Wu also has been Informed that
Viceroy Yu, of the province Just vacated
by the court, was impeached by reason
of hl3 anti-foreign tendencies, which is
the first step toward his degradation.
It is said there are no Boxers in the
newly chosen locality, so that the court
will have thrown off the hostile influences
recently surrounding it. As the dispatch
is dated four days ago it is taken that the
trip of the imperial party began prior to
tnat time. It will be slow and tedious,
overland most of the way, with a short
stretch of river navigation. Si-Ngan was
formerly the place of imperial residence,
and the ancient palaces are still there.
The only disquieting feature of the move
ment comes from Japanese advices, stat
ing that the new point of location is strong
ly fortified, which is some indication that
the imperial family is still in flight and is
seeking stronger defenses, but the friendly
viceroys and Minister Wu do not share in
The mlnUter considers the question of
punishments practically disposed of by the
edict of the Emperor and the German anl
American notes exchanged last week. Tho
only difficulty he apprehends is in case the
foreign ministers seek to designate cer
tain persons who shall be punished in ad
dition to those which the government Itself
marks for punishment. Such a course by
the ministers, he says, would be hard to
comply with, but he looked to the sagacity
of Ll Hung Chang and Prince Chlng to
overcome any euch difficulty.

CAMDEN, N. J., Oct. 8. Senator WU
Ham P. Frye, of Maine, addressed a Repub
lican mass meeting here to-night, presided
over by Senator Sewell, of New Jersey.
He began his speech by referring to the
country's natural resources and the policy
of the Republican party in fostering them.
He said that in the discussion of honest
money, imperialism and militarism, the
protective tariff, which Is the bulwark of
American prosperity, should not be for
gotten. "In 1SC2," he said, "Mr. Cleveland
was elected and the Democratic party was
in full control. Before that party had
done anything a fearful panic was pre
cipitated by the distress felt by the busi
ness Interests of the country and five hun
dred banks failed and every industry in tha
country felt the shock. In 1S56," he con
tinued, "William McKinley was elected.
He is as good a President in his time as
was Washington in his or Lincoln was in
his. Prosperity came back to stay unless
the American people should elect Bryan.
There is no Democratic party to-day. It
is now known as Bryanlsm, and down our
way the Democrats always put on their
posters, 'Bryan meeting.' Seldom do you
see the word Democrat. Bryanlsm has
swallowed tho Democratic party.
"Bryan says we are in danger of militar
ism. Well, we have one soldier to every
one thousand citizens. Bryan thinks the
thousand is in danger. There are two
dangers ahead of us. One is the election of
Bryan and the greatest danger of this 13
that no one thinks there is any danger
of his being elected. I believe Bryan is
honest. He is the more dangerous fon
being so. He has a solid South back of
him and stands on a platform that reaches
out a bribe to every bad man in the coun
try. Don't underestimate his strength. He
is strong with certain classes of people.
"The other great danger for us Is over
production. We are in danger of an unsold
surplus. We must have a market and in
looking for one we enter upon a great com
mercial war. Germany is our great com
petitor. Her workmen receive low wages.
We do not Intend to resort to this. The
Republican party has decided upon another
plan. We have taken the Hawaiian is
lands, one of the Samoan group and the
Philippines. What does this mean? Not
merely more territory but stepping stones
for the great commerce of the Orient with
SCÖ.O00.OO0 consumers. We do not want any
of China. We have what is better. We
have the Philippine islands as a gateway
to that empire. I do not ppeak for Mr.
McKinley, but I would always hold those
Islands. In holding this doctrine I am in
good company. I am In company of Demo
crats who would not give the country a
cheap dollar, overthrow the United States
Supreme Court, encourage rioting and
foster class hatred."
Gen. C. P. Mattacks, of Portland, Me.,
followed Senator Frye in a brief address.

Governor Roosevelt Grossly Insulted
While Leavlngv Church.
CHICAGO, Oct 8. The Inter Ocean cays:
Governor Roosevelt was assailed - by a
crowd of tough newspaper "hustlers," em
ployed by Hearst's Chicago American, as
he was leaving the Trinity Dutch Re
formed Church on Marshfleld avenue, near
Polk street, yesterday morning. It was
the same moo of thugs which hurled In
suring epithets at him when ho arrived
at the Northwestern depot Saturday night.
The language used by the boys yesterday
was of such a character that it brought a
blush to the face of the old campaigner,
and made the cheeks of women and girls,
who were coming out of church, turn
The Republicans at national headquar
ters say they believe that the boys had
more material Inspiration for their actions
than tho mere Influence on their impres
sionable minds of the unclean and de
moralizing editorials about Governor Roose
velt and other Republicans of high stand
ing which are printed in the newspaper
that hires them.
Governor Roosevelt went yesterday morn
ing to the church which he always at
tends when he visits Chicago. It Is an un
pretentious building, the congregation is so
far from wealthy that the church is not
yet fitted with pews, and the people sit on
rows of chairs arranged before a raised
platform on which the minister stands. The
congregation is very small, and it is very
proud of Governor Roosevelt's liking
Governor Roosevelt was almost the last
member of the congregation to reach the
church before the services began. He was
accompanied by Colonel C. Curtis Guild,
jr., of Boston, who has been accompanying
him on his Western tour, and who was at
his side during the Victor riot. As they
entered the church the Governor and CoL
Guild nearly fell over a newsboy who was
running through the street with a bundle
of Americans under his arm. The boy
caught sight of the Governor's face and
followed the two to the very door of the
church. Just as the Governor entered the
boy shouted after him: "Hullo, Teddy!"
The Governor has become used to such
harmless and spontaneous juvenile atten
tion as this in the last few weeks, and
ignored the remark altogether, if, indeed,
he was conscious of it at all.
When the Govetnor came out of the
church an hour or so later he was con
fronted with a dirty mob of ragamuffins,
headed by the same sixteen-year, old boy
who had been in his way when he entered.
The boys and young men, for there were
not a few in" the crew, who had reached
man's stature, were crowding the members
of the congregation who had gone out
before Governor Roosevelt, and were
hustling the women worshipers ' roughly.
When the Governor stepped out of the
door he was greeted with a volley of
unprintable epithets, coupled with the loud
announcement of the ringleader:
"Here comes the !"
The Governor stopped short for a mo
ment. He could not, apparently, realize
that he was the object of attack. When It
came over hlra that he was the one who
was bringing down such a deluge of ob
scenity and vlleness on the women and
children who were about him, his . face
flushed and he took a quick step forward
toward the nearest of the crowd which was
abusing him. The gang had taken care to
keep well out of his reach, and the Gov
ernor did not attempt to catch any of
"Miserable' scoundrels," he said In a
low tone that was terribly distinct, "be
The crowd scattered up and down the
sidewalk, so that the Governor passed be
tween two gangs of twenty or thirty news
boys, ail of whom were yelling at him at
the toos of their voices. The things they
said were many of Ucm too vile to be ex-
pressed by dashes The limit of ragamufUn
Billingsgate was achieved. Besides the ob
scenity there were questions as to various
canards and campaign lies and arguments

He was told In blasphemous and filthy
terms that a man who would shoot a de
fenseless Spaniard in the back, ought to be
lynched. He was asked how he enjoyed
torturing to death Mrs. Place, whom, it
will be remembered, the Governor refused
to pardon after she had been sentenced to
be electrocuted for the murder of her step
daughter. Governor Roosevelt paid no at
tention to any of the insults after his first
shock of surprise, and returned to the

afterward, he said that the time and place
of the assault were such that he felt much
worse over the matter than he had felt
about the bodily attack made upon hlra by
the Coeur d'Alene Anarchists at Victor,
Col. He said he could easily believe that
the doctrines preached In the American
would lead a crowd of Its younger employes
to follow him through the streets when
he was on the way to a political meeting,
as he was Saturday night, and gave vent
to their inspired love for disorder by shout
ing and hooting. But he had never dreamed
that, in the license that the forces of dis
order were learning from editorials like
those in the American, they would go so
far as to defile the portals of the houe
of God with their uncleanness and f plte.
It was understood that the Governor felt
with particular keenness the nature of the
insults and the attack because it was only
by a chance that some of the members of
his family had not come on from New
York to join him in Chicago, and if any of
them had come they would certainly have
been with him at the church. The incident
thoroughly spoiled all the good effects of
the Governor's day of rest.
The affair was the subject of disgusted
and angry comment at the Auditorium
headquarters for the rest of the day. It
was the opinion of most of those who spoke
of the matter that there was something
more than a mere inspiration of editorials
working in the brains of tho young men
and boys who thus Insulted Governor
Roosevelt. R. C. Kerens was responsible
foi a statement that in consideration of
the fact that the American was sold to
newsboys at most advantageous terms.
they were expected to exert themselves to
the utmost in its behalf, even beyond their
efforts to Increase Its circulation. Mr.

MISERS' CALL ISSUED
ANTHRACITE DIGGERS TO MEET AT
SCHANTON ON FRIDAY.
Question of Accepting: or Rejecting;
the Offer of Operators Will
Then Be Decided.
STRIKE WILL PROBABLY END
TEN PER CENT. INCREASE MAY BE
Text of President Mitchell's Call
Withdrawal of Battery C
IIAZLETON. Pa., Oct. 8.-The issuing of
the call to-day by President Mitchell, of
the United Mine Workers of America, for
a Joint convention of the anthracite miners,
to be held at Scranton, beginning next
Friday, for fhe purpose of deciding whether
to accept or to reject the 10 per cent, net
increase in wages offered by the operators.
Is a long stride in the direction of bringing
the great coal miners strike to a close.
Gunulne satisfaction was expressed to-day
by both miners and persons not directly
connected with the coal industry that tho
contest is approaching an end. Business
throughout the entire anthracite coal field
is practically at a standstill, and It will
take some time before normal conditions
will again, prevail.
It Is believed the convention will not be
a long one, as it is expected the strikers
will almost unanimously accept the ad
vance in wages. There Is. however, a pos
sibility that by the Introduction of a propo
sition to abolish the sliding scale and an
other to have the operators agree to a
yearly wage contract, the termination of
the strike might be somewhat delayed.
None of the operators who could be seen
here to-day would have anything to say in
regard to the convention call. Most of
them preferred to wait and see what action
the convention will take.
Some of the local unions in various parts
of the coal field have selected their delegates
to the convention and many of them were
In session to-night for that purpose.
President Mitchell will leave here to
morrow morning for Shamokin, where a
labor demonstration is to take place in the
afternoon. ' On Wednesday he will go to
Scranton to take part in a big mass meet
ing and parade of miners on that day and
will remain there until the convention ad
journs. Mr. Mitchell will then probably
return to Hazleton. The text of the con
vention call issued by him to-day follows:
"To all Miners and Mine Employes of the
"Brothers In view of the fact that the
mine operators have posted notices offering
an advance In wages formerly proposed,
and feeling it to be our plain duty to con
sult your wishes as to our future action,
we deem it advisable to ask you to select
delegates to represent you in convention.
You are. therefore, notified that a conven
tion will be held at Scranton, Pa., begin
ning Friday, Oct.12. at 10 a. m.
"The basis of representation will be on
vote for each 100 persons on strike, or If
desired one delegate may represent as
many as S"0 mine workers; but no delegate
will be allowed to cast more than five
votes. Each delegates should have cre
dentials signed by the chairman and secre
tary of the meeting at which he la elected,
ana whenever possible credential should
bear the seal of the local union."
The call was signed by John Mitchell.

Thomas Duffy, president district No. 7. and

Music Hall, in Scranton, a theater adjoin

A SCENE OF UNSURPASSED REALTY
PRESENTED TO VIEW.
Thousands of People Down Town at
Night to Fenst Tbelr Eyes
and Sec the Sights.
Yesterday was an exceedingly busy day
In that part of the business section of In
dianapolis devoted to the fall carnival. The
great event opens formally and officially
this morning, and many things had to be
attended to In anticipation of the opening.
The recent rain and accompanying high
wind slightly damaged tome of the rich
decorations which are scattered along and
above the main streets, and workmen were
sent out early yesterday morning to re
move all traces of this damage. By last
evening the city's festal appearance was
entirely restored and was the subject of ad
miring comment from the thousands of
people who were on the streets.
Although the carnival preparations were
still in progress yesterday, hundreds of
out-of-town people came Into the city by
railroad and electric lnterurbaryr"i
prcs jwU O'be on htfrTarly thl morn
ing when the big show starts. It is expect
ed that yesterday's hundreds of visitors to
the city will to-day be transformed Into
thousands. The carnival bids fair to be an
unlimited success. The weather conditions
are admirable to the last degree. It is a
little too chilly to rain, but not cold enough
to prevent anybody from beingbrond in
the city at any hour of the tfay CTf nlglrt:
Tho promoters of the carnival expressed
themselves last night as delighted beyond
measure with the way the weather seems
mapped out for them.
The business men of Indianapolis who
have been heretofore a trifle listless about
the big event seemed to wake up yester
day, and the result was that not merely
business houses, but entire squares which
had not been decorated before suddenly
blossomed forth as resplendent in rieh col
oring as a rare txotic plant. , Even Massa
chusetts avenue, which is a little out of the
way of the principal events cf the carnival,
was decorated yesterday through many
squares of Its length. This thoroughfare is
fast growing Into popularity as a retail
street that rivals the long-established pres
tige of Washington street, and the Massachusetts-avenue
merchants have wisely
seized upon the present glorious opportu
nity to further distinguish themselves.
The culminating point of the decorating
spirit i3, of course. In Monument place,
or the Magic Circle. Here the decorators
have fairly "laid themselves out," with the
result that their work seems almtt too
beautiful not to be permanent. ..The de
signs displayed on the Circle are' highly
elaborate, and the oiflcial colors of the car
nivalred and yellow have been blended in
these designs with an effect that is liter
ally magic. The monument itself has come
beneath the decorator's delicate touch und
seems to have almost changed its entire
original appearance. Some have Ken lit to
object to the placing of any decorations
on the monument, but the people who
view those that are In place unite in prais
ing their richness and artistic beauty. The
managers of the affair say: "It is tarnival
week and everything goe," and the rxople
applaud the sentiment. Fur the entire
present week the inhabitants of this city
and their thousands of guests from the
outside world propose to do nothing bat
have a jolly good time. Formality Is to be
thrown completely aside, and the person
with the sunniest diiporitlun Is going to
be king or queen of the carnival.
The principal events of to-day will be
the reception of Tecumeh into Indiana's
capital city, the parade given in his honor,
the grand civic and military parade and
to-night the rplendld illumination cf Magic
Circle and the monument, accompanied by
band concerts and other forms of entertain
ment. Tecumsch and the reception com
mittee will start from Broad Ripple at noon
to-day and go directly to the south en
trance of the Statehouse, where the old
warrior will be given tbe "key" and per
fect freedom of the entire city.
