to the nation's dead at Gettyslmig was paid
under circumstances of the guatest inteiest.
Not since PiesiJent Lincoln dedicated the
cemetery has it been graced bj so many dis
tinguished cili/.ens. As eirly as Wednesday
moriung sliangeia began to arrive, and by
night the hotels were &H crowded to over
flowing. The weather to-day was beautiful.
Flags were well displajed and the streets
thronged with visitors. The Chambersburg
Greys arnved about 1A. M., after a tv\t,l\e
houib'maich. Thoy aio the guaid of honcr
to Mr. Huyes. During the whole forenoon
the rush of incoming strangeis, consisting
of five large excursion trains from Miffin,
Hanisbmg, Lancaster, York and Washing
ton, brought at least 5.000 persons, accom
panied by a number of bands of music.
Tho morning was spent by Mr. Hayes'
party in viewing the battle field, visiting
ifound Top, Culp's Hill and other promi
nent points, under the guidance of Gen.
Crawford and Col. Batchtldor. About noon
Mr. Hayes letumed to the residence of Mr.
McPheisun, where he remained until the
beginning of the memorial exercises.
The grand procession moved to the ceme
tery in a blinding rain which lasted till five
o'clock. At 2 o'clock the column, headed by
a platoon of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic, advanced. They were followed by Gen.
Butler and Gen. Slayton and ladies a car
riage escorted by the Chambersburg Greys.
The rear was formed by companies of the
Grand Army beaiing bouquets to be placed
upon the graves. The procession moved
along Baltimore street, still under a drench
ing rain, and as it entered the cemetery gates
tho band played a dead march.
A few minutes afterwards Mr.
Hayes and other well known per
sons arrived. For a few moments they
stopped to admiie the national monument,
while the Chambersburg Greys and the grand
army placed boquets on the graves. Re
gardless of the stoim, hundreds thronged
the cemetery, the stage being surrounded by
a dense crowd'which could scarcely be pene
trated by Mr. Hayes' party. The ceremonies
were opened by prayer by Rev. McLeod.
Gen. Siayton introduced Hon. Benj. F.
Butler, who delivered an eloquent oration on
"The Private Soldier in the War of the Re
bellion." Ex-Gov. Curtin, of Pennsylvania
was next presented, and spoke eloquently,
eliciting much applause. Hon. Edward Mo

Fellow citizensThe battle of Gettysburg
will probably always be regarded as the
battle which did more than any other to de
termine the result of the gieat civil war in
the United States. The honored dead who
fought and perished here will, therefore, be
held in special and grateful remembrance.
The gieat martyr of the conflict was
Abraham Lincoln. Ho by bis immortal
words spoken hero has indiasolubly
linked his name, fame, and memory with
the battle of Gettysburg. Lincoln gave his
life and the brave men who responded to his
call gave their lives for the Union, for liber

NEW YOBK, May 30.-The observance of
decoration day of 1878, beginning early in
the morning and ending with ceremonies in
Booth's theater this evening, is perhaps
more elaborate tnan any of the celebrations
in recent years. Ibe great feature of the
day w^s the parade of the first division of
the National guard, but the exercises in the
diffment cemeteries and the ceremonies at
tending the decoration of the different stat
ues and monuments -were extremely inter
esting. In the lower part of the city almost
a perfect holiday was kept. The different
exchanges and courts, and in fact, almost all
places of public or private business were
closed and the streets wore adeseited aspect,
although the scene was somewhat enhanced
by a liberal display of bunting on the gov
ernment and laigor private buildings,
decorations of the Washington monument
in Union square were of the most profuae
and elaborate description, including palm
tieos from Florida. The statues of Lin
coln and Lafayette in the same square were
made hardly leas attractive with fragiant
flowers and evergreens. The Montgomery
monument at St. Paul's Church and the
tomb of the historic Lawrence in Irinity
church yard were tastefully adorned. A de
tachment of marines and seamen from the
navy yard visited the grave of Admiral lar
ragut early in the morning and covered it
with a piofusion of flowers. Occasional
showers which marred somewhat the splen
dor of the procession only made the flowers
bloom the brighter and give foith a fresher
The nrocession marched down Fifth ave
nue past the Worth monument, where it was
reviewed bv the governor, accompanied by
his staff, and the major and common coun
cil. The column then rrarched down Fifth
avenue to Fourteenth street and Broadway
and to Warren street, when it passed in re
view before Gen. Sherman, who was accom
panied bv Gen. Hancock and Admiral Tren
chard. The paiade was then dismissed, and
the posts of the Giand Army proceeded to
the various cemeteries to docorate the graves
of then- dead eonnades. Gens. Sherman
and Hancock were cheered along the route.
The evening ceiemonies in connnection
with Decoration day took place to-night in
Booth's theatie. E\ ery seat was filled and
the stage was filled with the glitter of mili
tary uniforms. Gen. L. Aspmwall piesided.
Alter prayer by H. W. Beechti, Gtn. Wr.
Sheiman, who was received with enthusiastic
applause, said that tne pageant of to-day and
this assembly demonstrated unmistakeably
that the public inteustin the evuiits of 18G1
'05 did not die with the heioes and mar
tyrs of that epoch. "We claim," he said,
"that we of the Union aimy were right and
onr adversaiies wrong, and no
special pleading can change this veidict
of the war." Ho would not for the world
revive any angry passions of tbot period,
but we should never tear fiom our history
self-interest, or any human cause or pietozt
may undeitake to desiioy the government
by-violence. (Applause.) In the language
of oui gieat leadei, Gen. Grant, we will
ne\er apologize for the deeds done
in 1801 and '65, but tieasure
i.p their memoi as long a life lasts. He
thanked God the mass of our people love
hbeity and justice, and are too busy with
theii mctu&tnes in ordinary times to heed
the mechanations of the pestiferous few.
We should not bo hastily alarmed. The
armies disbanded 1805 still live in spirit,
and will never ppimit tlr-q government
to duft into anaichy. ACtei an ora
tion by Gen. Banks the exercises terminated.
-The annual ti lbut*
were equal to any emergency, and that they
ought to be maintained at the cost of prop
erty or of life. If onr assembling in this
place shall fitly honor the men we now wish
remembered with gratitude, it will be because
beholding the scenes, and contemplating the
example of the heroes who made Gettysburg
illustrious, we shall be able to estimate more
wisely the value of our country and of her
institutions, and be better prepared for the
duties which under Providence have de
volved upon us. Let us here give heed to
the words of Abraham Lincoln. Let us
here highly resolve that these dead shall not
have died in vain: that the nation under
God shall have a new birth of freedom, and
that a government of the people and by the
people bhall not perish from the earth.
Attorney General Devans spoke forcibly
and eloquently on the subject of the battle
of Gettysburg, and Secretary McCrary also
made a brief address. The ceremonies were
concluded with a benediction. At 6 p. M.
Mr. Hayes and party left Gettysburg by a
special train for Washington.

The Last of the Cuban Patriot Generals in
NEW YOBK, May 30.General Antonio
Maceo, the well known commander-in-chief
of the Cuban patriot forces, arrived to-day
from Jamaica. He is accompanied by two
members of his staff, Brigadiers Arcadio
Livedal and Jnan Rios Kivera. The gen
eral has been wounded 21 times since the
beginning of the campaign, and now [carries
in his body four bullets. He says during
the past six years the patriots have been
constantly promised aid from here, bat np
to the present time they received absolutely
nothing. The strength of the patriot army
to-day is not much over 4,000 men, but they
are well armed and drilled and in fine con
dition. They have ..opposed to them over
4,000 Spanish troops who give the patriots
not a minute's peace. The general asserts
that there is not the slightest truth in the
report of his surrender. He says, "I have
made no terms whatever with the
Spanish goverment. I am commissioned
here by the provisional government, and by
the courtesy of Gen. Campos was permitted
to pass through his lines. The war must
continue. There is now no more congress or
standing government, and affairs are under
the direction of Manuel Calver, the head of
the provisional government. Officers are
now in Jamaica on an important commission
from Manuel Oolver." The general, while
protesting against the report of his sur
render, could not well explain why it was
confirmed by all the Havana journals. To
the inquiry, if it is not indiscreet to ask "I
would like" to know if you anticipate remain
ing in New York for any length of time?"
he replied: "I really cannot tell at present.
I have important business to transact, but I
do not think it will detain me very long."

SALT LAKE, May 30.About 10 o'clock
last night a party of four masked men
boarded a west-bound passenger train, just
after it left Percy station, entered the mid
dle sleeping car, and proceeded to rob the
passengers. They took a watch and one
hundred dollars from one passenger, fifty
dollars and tickets from another, a gold
watch and thirty-five dollars from the sleep
ing car conductor. At that time some one
pulled the bell cord, and the robbers, becom
ing frightened, jumped off. They fired
three shots into the sleeper without injury
to the passengers. They struck one passen
ger with a pistol, cutting the scalp some.
It was all done in three minutes,'and the
robbers were out of sight in the darkness
before the train stopped. The ground being

this .morning, and a large force of armed
men started in pursuit. The Union Pacific

keyAustria Wants to Have Her Way
And Yet the Scheme for a Settlement Is
All Known to the London Globe.
LONDON, May 30.The Times this morn
ing returns to the subject of a British pro
tectorate over Asiatic Turkey, and says the
constitutional ministry in Turkey is at pres
ent a mere dream. There must be some
permanent centre of force to control by its
attraction the shifting elements of personal
will or caprice. That central force, it is to
be hoped, the Porte will consent to accept at
our hands, and thus introduce the only prin
ciple of stability into its government of
which it is yet capable.
A correspondent says that there is little
reason to doubt that our government is de
termined to exercise control in Turkey,
which will to a great extent place the actual
government in our own hands not that the

LONDON, May 30.It is reported that fears

for the utmost possible concessions, and be

that England ought to meet the pacific over

LONDON, May 30.A Vienna dispatch says
the propositions which Count Schouvaloff
took to London, and which appear to have
been substantially accepted, were that the
southern boundary of Bulgaria is to be a line
from Burgos to Phillipopolis and Vranja,
Turkey to retain Batoum on condition of the
demolition of the Danubian fortresses, the
substitution of European for Russian con
trol in carrying out the treaty, and the re
maining questions to be left to the congress.
A dispatch from St. Petersburg last night
is in the same strain. It expresses the fear
that the war party at Constantinople may
produce a crisis, and says the appointment
of Prince Labanoff in the place of Gen.
Ignatieff was intended to lessen this danger,
and broad hints are now being thrown out
that the British government might give some
corresponding proof of its pacific disposi
tion. These points furnish the probable ex
planation of the present apparent hitch in
the negotiations. Trouble from the Turks
is altogether improbable.
A telegram last night says the impression
generally prevails in Constantinople that
peace is assured. The threatened-trouble
with the Turks and Montenegrins is the re
sult of the aggressive action of the latter
who crossed the river Seta and occupied the
heights commanding Podgoritza after the
conclusion of the armistice. The Turks
now demand the withdrawal of the Monte

In a Hon. J. S. Harrison's Body Found
CINCINNATI, O., May 30.Considerable ex
citement was created here to-day by the
accidental discovery of the body of Hon. J.
Scott Harrison, who was-buried yesterday in
his family vault at North Bend, in the dis
secting rooms of the Ohio medical college.
A body had been stolen at North Bend within
part of the week, and a son of Mr. Harrison,
accompanied with a friend, was seeking it
to-day around the medical colleges of this
city. It was not known that Harrison's body
had been taken until his son recognized it in
the rooms of the Ohio medical college. The
janitor of the college was arrested.
It appears that a young man named
Devins died at North Bend last night, and
yesterday, while the services at Mr. Harri
son's grave were progressing, John Harrison
and Geo. Eaton thought they observed ap
pearances] about Devins' grave which were
suspicious. After the funeral they caused
an examination of the grave tobe made, and
found it had been robbed. Preparations were
made to prevent a similar desecration of
Mr. Harrison's grave, and the coffin was en
closed in a wall of bnck, and the whole
covered with a slab of a single heavy stone
set in cement. The grave was left open to
allow the cement to harden, and watchmen
placed in charge. Last night these men
came to Cincinnati in search of Devins'
body. They procured search war
rants for all the medical colleges,
and accompanied by detectives first
visited the rooms of the Ohio medical
college. They found nothing, and were
about leaving when one of their number
noticed a rope, attached to a windlass, was
down the chute and evidently had something
attached to it. Upon drawing it up the
naked body of a man was discovered hang
ing by the neck, with a cloth over all. As
the hair was gray, they said it was not De
viens' body, and were about to leave.
The detective suggested that they uncover
the face and see who it was. They im
mediately recognized Mr. Harrison, and
John Harrison stayed with the body till a
coffin was procured and the body placed
therein and removed to the undertakers.
The janitor was at once arrested. It is re
ported to-night that several persons at
Cloves, near the North Bend, have
been also arrested and charged
with complicity in the outrage Relatives
of the deceased now in this city express a
determination to prosecute to the fullest ex
tent of the law all guilty of this act of van
dalism, or of accessories thereto. Excite
ment at North Bend is intense. Mr. Harri
son was the son of ex-President Harrison,
and widely known.

THE LAST HONORS.
The Relatives and Friends Render the Clot
Ins Tribute to the Late Major J. C. Becht.
Yesterday, the day appointed for the
funeral of the late lamented Sheriff Becht,
opened pleasantly and brightly. It was, in
fact, one of those days on which, had he
been alive, he would have delighted to have
superintended the mowing of the grass be
had sown in the court house square, or in
examining the trees he had planted. During
the morning hours, his early and unexpected
detth was the universal theme of conversa
tion, more especially among the German
section of the population.' As the day wore
on toward noon, the promise of a
vast concourse became more and
more apparent. By one o'clock in the after
noon every vantage ground in the way of
Btreet corner standing sites was pre-empted,
while carriages and vehicles of every descrip
tion lined the interior and exterior area of
the court house square. Away down Third
street, np Robert street, and along the whole
line of the published march, the patient
crowd lined the thoroughfares in expec
tation of the coming cortege.
In the immediate vicinity of the old court
house, the crowd was, of course, the most
dense. The remains lay in the
front room of the sheriff's
official residence. They were enclosed in a
plain casket with silve.* mountings, on which
was strewn a perfect profusion of flowers,
and the crowd surged passed the coffin in
such endless succession that it seemed as if
the people would never cease their coming
and their going.
While the people were taking their last
look the Msennerchor sang a beautiful song
by Kuhler, entitled "Evening Air." The
following is a crude translation of the re
Under the canopy of trees there is rest,
Under the branches no whisper is heard,
The buds sleep in the forest.
Wait, wait, wait,
Soon thou also wilt rest.
Precisely at the hour appointed, a platoon
of police, under the command of Capt.
Weber, marched from the city hall and took
up a position in front of the GLOBE
office to escort the Damascus Com
mandery, where the Northwestern band
shortly followed. Meanwhile, the
Druids, to the number of 300 the A. O. U.
W., to the number of 200 the survivors of
the Fifth Minnesota regiment, of which the
deceased was a member, with the tattered
battle flags of the organization the grand
lodge of Oddfellows, and the German so
ciety filed into line.
The interment was under the direction and
control, by the request of deceased, of the
Damascus Commandery, of which body the
following were pall-bearers: Dr. Murphy,
Captain Van Slyke, A. T. Lindholm,
Jacob Matheis, Honorable Fred. Richter,
and Captain John Reaney.
These, after the bead of the procession was
formed opposite the Wabashaw street front
of the court house square, took possession
of the remains, and the other societies filed
past in mournful array. The various secret
organizations having taken their last look at
the deceased, the immediate relatives of the
dead took their sad farewell, and the body
was conveyed to the hearse.
To the solemn dead march of the band,
the procession started, taking up the line of
march as detailed in yesterday's GLOBE. A S
an indication of the length of the cortege,
it may be stated that ninety-six carriages, in
dependent of the societies on foot, turned
the corner of Third and Robert streets.
AT THE CEMETEBT.
It being decoration day there were many
persons in the cemetery before the procassion
arrived, and as the strains of the distant
music became more distinct and clear, groups
began to gather at the entrance and at the
open grave. At 4 o'clock the sad
and solemn cortege entered the beautiful
grounds dedicated to the repose of mortality,
and as it "dragged its slow length along"
the meandering path which led to the
selected resting place of the deceased many
a flower-decked grave and garlanded tomb
was passed, and many a grief-wearied head
was turned in mute and wistful gaze as if
desirous to be left alone with their dead.
Arriving at the grave the procession was re
ceived by three knights, who had been de
tailed to take charge of the grave. The
handsome casket bearing its floral
decorations was removed from the
hearse and placed in the yawning
pit which was to receive it. The command
ery formed a square around the grave, into
the center of which and toward the head of
the casket the mourners were usheredthey
were the bereaved widow, her daughter Ida,
supported by her husband Mr. J. J. Penner,
a daughter of the deceased 12 years of age,
Mr. F. Emmert and family. L. Koch and
family, Joseph Zirkelbach and family, John
Zirkelbach and family, M. Schilling and Mr.
George Benz. As soon as the coffin was
placed, a quartette consisting of Messrs.
Leib, Wood, Munger and Buckelew sang
with much feeling and deep pathos a fine
sacred song entitled "ConsolationCome
unto Me and I will give you rest," At the
conclusion of the hymn, Generalissimo
Wright commenced the ceremonial and Pre
late Miller read the lengthy and
impressive burial service, the whole
company of Knights joining in the
responses and the quartette singing the
hymns as prescribed by the ritual of the
order. There was no eulogy spoken over
the grave, and there needed none but as
soon as the last prayer was said and the last
act of placing the emblem of the Christian
faith upon the casket was performed, the
Knights, under command of R. C. Munger,
C. G., filed past and left the mourners to
look a long and sad farewell at the grave of
him whom they loved so well.

ELECTING A SHERIFF.
THE COUXTY COMMISSIONERS
ZECT JA.3IES KING.
The county conumsaioners met yesterday
afternoon for the purpose of electing a
sheriff in place of the late Major Beoht,
There were present Commissioners Lindeke,
Maynard, Hunt, Miner, McGrath, Wagner
and the president.
Mr. Hunt moved that the board proceed
to elect a gentleman to the office of Sheriff
by a vive tou vote.
Mr. Lindeke proposed an amendment that
the vote be taken by ballot.
Mr. Hunt's motion was carried, when
Mr. Miner proposed James King.
Mr. Lindeke proposed C. S. Uline as a
gentleman who had shown in the past his
fitness for any office. *As there were no
other nominations the connty auditor called
the names, and five were recorded for King
and two for Uline, Messrs. Maynard, Hunt,
Wagner, McGrath and Miner voting for
James King, and Lindeke and Mr. Dawson
for C. S. Uline. James King was according
ly declared duly elected.
As it was considered important by the
board that the sheriff elect should at once
enter upon his duties, his bonds were pre
sented immediately. The bondsmen were
Patrick Keigher and A. Armstrong, in five
thousand dollars each. The bonds were ap
proved and the county attorney made out
the certificate of election.
The board then, with President Dawson,
proceeded to the sheriff's office and intro
duced the newly elected sheriff to Coroner
Stem, and directed that gentleman to hand
over the office, the keys and all the appurte
nances to the sheriff.
Coroner Stein said: I have been advised
by my counsel that I am sheriff till January.
The county commissioners have no right
appoint a sheriff, and I am going to act tul
the courts decide who is right.
Mr. Dawson tken read the certificate c"
election of Sheriff King, and stated to r
oner Stein that anything he did would ue
upon his own responsibility and at his own
The coroner said he knew what he was
doing. He was acting under advice and he
should not give up possession.
Sheriff King then stopped forward and
asked the coroner for the keys. That gen
tleman declined to give them np.
Sheriff KingAs yon have heard I am
now sheriff of Ramsey county, and I propose
to do my duty, I ask you for the keys. Stem
Sheriff KingCaptain Weber, send a man
for Charley Miles.
Several friends of Stein's tried to persuade
him to give up the keys, but to no purpose.
At length Mr. Miles, the locksmith made his
appearance. He was intstruoted to do as
Sheriff King ordered him.
Mr. MilesWhat do you want me to do,
Sheriff KingTake off these locks from
the doors and replace them with new ones.
Mr. Stein who had been talking to Mr.
George Benz, Mr. Lindeke and others, said
rather than put them to the trouble of tak
ing off the locks he would give up the keys,
and he accordingly did so, much to the
satisfaction of all parties concerned.
The coroner then retired from the build
ing leaving the new sheriff in quiet and
THE VARY COALER!.
A Fine Entertainment and a Delighted
The Opera House was filled in every part
last evening, even to the remotest parts of
the gallery. The fame of the great mezzo
soprano had preceded her, and so great was
the desire to hear her that every seat was
bought up the day before. The programme
commenced with Pinsnti's "Spring Song,"
which brought before the audience the whole
support of Miss Cary. The soprano, Mrs.
J. A. Farwell, has a clear and pleasing voice
much above the average, and her method is
careful and studied. Mrs. J. Balfour is pos
sessed of a rich and melodious alto voice,
very effective in concerted pieces and pleas
ant in solos. Mr. R. T. Howard's voice is
better than his method, although that is
above mediocre his crescendo passages and
swells were a little abrupt and jerky last
night. Mr. H. L. Sloan has a powerful basso
voice, but it wants in flexibility, and the
upper notes are somewhat hard. The whole,
however, form a quartette which will com
pare favorably with those from Eastern
Miss Cary's firet number was an aria from
Verdi's Don Carlos, and served to give the
audience a fair idea of the compass, power,
and wonderful sweetness of her magnificent
voice. From the deepest tone to the highest
trill there is the most delicious music, and
deep, strong and ponderous as
the great volume of sound
seems to be, yet it is singularly
flexible and sensitive. Using a figure, it is
like a gigantic horse of long and heavy stride,
quick as a fawn, and answering the touch of
an infant's hand upon the rein. Space will
not admit of further comments.. Of course
the audience was delighted, and applause
and encores were the order of the evening.
