TOLD GRAND ARMY FRIENDS
Tbey Wanted Tllni to Address Old
Soldiers at New York' State
Fair ribs Explanation of Ills He
fusnl The Announcement Talien
By United Press.)
Old Forge, N. Y., July 17. Benjamin
Harrison has broken the silence as regards
the Presidency. He has said that under no
circumstances will he become u candidate
for that office.
These statements were made in his
cuii.igc last evening 111 the- ircw .ii'.' 01 two
of his old G. A. U. Triends. Their names
are Congressman Poole, of Syracuse, N.
Y., and Joseph I. Sayles, of Rome, N. Y.
The details of their visit were only briefly
outlined in these dispatches last night.
Congressman Poole came here for the
purpose of inviting Gen. Harrison to go to
Syracuse on Grand Army day, which will
be during the week of the State fair.
Every Grand Army post in the State will
be invited to visit the fair on that day,
and already preparations are being made
for the event. Previous to the coming of
Congressman Poole, ex-United States Sena
tor Frank Hiscock, of Syracuse, wrote to
Gen. Harrison, extending him a very cor
dial invitation to visit Syracuse during
the State fair week and make a speech on
Grand Army day.
Congressman Poole knew that Senator
Hiscock had written such a letter, and
when he came hero yesterday he was very
confident of bemg able to get an affirmative
response to the oral invitation which was
extended to him. Congressman Poole and
ex-President Harrison are old friends and
have been acquainted since the battle of
Chattanooga. They have attended Grand
Army encampments together, and alto
gether their friendship has been a warm
CAME FOR REST.
Mr. Snylesis also a Grand Army man, and
on several occasions has met and talked
with Gen. Harrison, both in "Washington
and at Grand Army encampments. He and
Major Poole were the only persons in yes
terday's delegation which called on Gen.
Harrison who were acquainted with the
ox-President. After Major Poole had in
troduced his friends he made known to Gen.
Harrison the object of their mission, which
was ,ho said, to have him attend the State
Harrison the object of their iuibslon, which
was he said, to have him attend the State
fair and address the old Boldiers. Gen
Harrison 111 reply said that he is always
pleased at meeting his old comrades in
arms, but he could not promise to go to
Syracuse at the time he was asked to.
"I have come into these mountains."
said the general, "for rest and recreation,
and I do not intend to leave them until
my vacation is ended."
So positively was this statement made
that Major Poole apparently did uot deem
Itadvisable to press themattermuch further.
Epecting the general's quarters Mr. Sayles
suggested to Major Poole that he make an
other effort to liiive Gen. Harrison change
lite-mind about the Syracuse matter.
Major Poole called Gen. Harrison to the
south end of the tent. Mr. Sayles went
with him. Mr. Poole renewed his efforts
to have thegeneralpro raise togotoSyracuse.
Gen. Harrison again said he would not
go. Then there was a moment's hesita
tion, which was broken by the general him
self. Turning to Major Poole Mr. Harrison
slowly began, saying:
"Major, I will tell you why I do not care
to go to Syracuse at the time you want
me to. If I go any whero now and make
a speech, the candidates for the Presidency
will say that I am a candidate for that
office, aad am going for political pur
poses. NOT A CANDIDATE. .
Then with a voice that carried with it
all the earnestness and positiveness that is
to be found in the general's make-up,
"I am not a candidate for the Presi
dency, have not been, will not be. I
do not want the office and would not
These aro the exact words the general
used, and when ho had finished talking
the question of his going to Syracuse was
Immediately dropped by Major Poole
and Mr. Sayles, who, as another steamer
came in view, took leave of Gen. Harrison.
Great caro was taken by Major Poole
from the time he started for the Harrison
camp until he left it to have the newspapre
reporters know nothing about his visit,
and especially about the conversation that
Mr. Sayles was equally as secretive.
In splto of the efforts of Mr. Poole and
Mr. Sayles the result of the interview be
came known, and this evening the corridors
of the Old Forge are filled with men who
are quietly discussing the conversation.
Now that General Harrison will nob
attond the fair on Grand Army day, Major
Poole and his associates arc going to try
and Induce Ohio's presidential candidate.
Win. McKinl-jy, lo go to Syracuse and make
an address to tho old soldiers. They are
confident of being able to secure him.
HIS WIFE'S DEATH.
The opinion Is general about this part
of the mountains that Gen. Harrison will
not be a candidate for the Presidency,
Might Be Repeated with Local Advantage.
and that when he made a statement to
that effect he meant every word spoken.
His hair and beard are snow white, his
face has a sad look, and in conversation he
seems to be reluctant to indulge in to any
extent. A western judge, who has been
stopping at the Forge House since Gen.
narrison arrived, said trynight that he Is
firm of the opinion that the ex-President
will not allow the use of his name in con
nection with the office he once held.
"Harrison has not been the same man,"
said the judge, "since his wife died, and
the sad memories that cluster around the
"White House will be the means of dis
abusing his mind of the thought of be
coming its occupant again. Were Mrs. Har
rison alive I think things would be dif
ferent." Major Ponle was not wholly unsuccessful
during his mission here. There will be an
American flag hoisted on a knoll in front
of the Forge House in a few days. The
flag will be donated by Mr. Poole.
Gen. Harrison will make a speech on

A GENERAL ALARM.
At 2 p. m. to-day an alarm was turned in
from Box 13. A big fire had started
in the five-story hay and feed warehouse
of J. II. Hermesch & Company, at Water
and "Walnut streets. It spread so as to
threaten the entire square bouuded by
Walnut, Water, Vine and Front streets,
and a general alarm soon called out the
The square to-night is almost all in
ashes, and the flames at times came very
near reaching buildings across the streets.
It Is believed the fire originated from a
match or cigar stump thrown carelessly
near the hay. The wartehoute went up
like an explosion.
Then the fire spread to Nelson Morris
& Co.'s large stables, but their large ware
house 6tood fireproof. The adjoining com
mission and tobacco company warehouse,
however, went like piles of kindling,
causing such a conflagration as to threaten
the north end of the suspension bridge.
George O. Brown had 8,000 bags of
peanuts in his warehouse. They burned
like oil, and soon wiped out the building
and stock, taking with it the large six
story tobacco warehouse of L. Seaman &
Co., which wa3 full of leaf tobacco.
All the streams of water had no effect
on tho fire in these warehouses, and tho
firemen exerted themselves to t-avc other
FIREMEN HID u; SMOKE.
The dense smoke from the burning piles
of tobacco prevented the firemen from
seeing their danger. When the walls of
these warehouses fell tho fire spread in all
directions, damaging Heymeyer Sons and
Company, Western Dressed Cork Company
and Henry Heile and Sous.
Those burned entirely out were: L.
Seamans Company, leaf tobacco, loss, $85,
000; Insurance, $70,000. George O. Brown,
commission; loss stock, $25,000; building,
$3,000; insurance, $21,000. H. L. Man
