"Washijtgtox, Sept. 23. The weather
maker concluded to smile on the grand
break-up of the National Encampment.
For two Jays and more the rain has been
unceasing, but at noon to-day the sun broke
forth, and this evening the veterans looked
toward a glorious western heaven, took in
the first faint silver horn of the new moon
over their right shoulders, thanked them
selves for the good luck tbat has attended
them during the meeting, and wished
themselves many returns of the same kind.
Altogether, the encampment bas been a
magnificent success. It is pronounced by
every one of the old boys in blue a brilliant
climax of the encampments ever held. The
unparalleled crowd has been accommodated
and handled with astonishing success. It
is more than ever evident that no city In
the country can manipulate and entertain
a great crush of strangers like the
national capital. It is now more than
ever to be regretted that 'Washington did
not get the World's Pair, as it made
peculiarly evident that it would have
been prosecuted to the end more success
fully here than any place else. The rail
roads, street and steam trunk lines have
almost exceeded possibilities in the manner
in which they have hauled the hundreds of
thousands without a really serious accident
within the region of the District.
The Doctors Have Tholr Hands roll.
The many doctors who volunteered their
services to the care of the sick den erve
no end of praise, for during the last two
days their task has been a trying one. All
of the hospitals, temporary and regular,
have been overflowing with patients.
Coughs, colds, malaria and cholera morbus
have run riot since the beginning of the
rains, which, fortunately, were warm ones.
Had it not been for the beautiful bracing
weather which continued until Wednesday
morning, or had the rains been, cold when
they came, one can hardly imagine the
plight of the sanitary department of the
encampment. As it is, it is bad enough,
and the nurses and doctors have been
worked almost beyond their endurance.
Xow that the boys In bine are saying
their last farewells, politics will come into
fashion again not that a good deal of
politics has not been around all the time,
but it was overwhelmed by other things.
Of course the boys of the Grand Army
have been careful, as they always are on
such occasions,to keep a close month on the
subject of party affiliation, but it would
not down altogether.
Wliere Cnmrnlngs and rarqnliar Differ.
All of Comrade Amos Cummings inter
est in the Grand Army could not make him
forget that he is a Congressman and a poli
tician, and he was frank to all comers in his
vigorous opinion that New York and Brook
lyn and their counties will give the largest
majorities for Grover Cleveland that have
ever been given by the Democrats for a
candidate of the Democratic party. On the
other hand, Comrade Parquhar, of Buffalo,
who rejoices in the fact that he is an ex
Congressman, is certain that the State of
2Tew York will give Benjamin Harrison a
majority of at least 25,000.
It may seem strange that gentlemen of
such undoubted intelligence should hold
Euch divergent views, but it is the fact, and
it also shows that the Democrats have vet
erans of the war in the Grand Army as well
as the Republicans.
Comrade Farquhar says: "The Eepubli
cans throughout the State are united and
earnest, and while they are not saying
much, they take an interest in the success of
the party. The meeting of the Republi
can clubs demonstrated this. Some have
been talking about the danger of Piatt's not
taking ofl his coat. Well, that has passed:
but I want to say that Mr. Harrison will
get the support of many who admire Harri
son because he did not surrender to Mr.
Piatt; because they believe Piatt is being
treated as all other Republicans. There are
thousands who like Harrison's independ
ence." Keller Talks Rather Coldly of Ohio.
Comrade Keifer, of Springfield, O., a Re
publican ex-Speaker of the House of Repre
sentatives, takes a rather gloomy view of
things in his State. He says: "Politics is
altogether too quiet in Ohio, and from what
I can hear it is the same all over the coun
try. There is no indication of interest, and
I do not suppose we shall be able to get out
the usual vote. The indications are that
the vote will be extremely light I
do not know what to make of it
I suppose, of course, that we shall carry
Ohio for Harrison by a good majority, but
we cannot wake the people up. The Demo
crats must suffer from this lack of interest
as much as we do, and that is the comfort of
the situation. In Indiana it is as it is in
Ohio. I remember when people used to
stop work for three months to devote them
selves to politics. Now they are not even
Comrade Caldwell, the lame Congress
man from Cincinnati, takes a somewhat
similar view, but is more cheerful. He
says: "I neer heard less politics talked
on the eve of a national election. I sup
pose it is because the people have made up
their minds, and I have no doubt of Re
publican success. Of course, we shall
carry Ohio, and I am told that things are in
better shape in Indiana than they were In
18SS. The only thing is that the people
are not worked up. I think the election
will be a vindication of protection and
reciprocity and Mr. Harrison's clean busi
Louis MeCoinas a Genuine) Optimist
To get genuine out-and-out optimism for
the Republicans one has but to go to Com
rade McComas, of Maryland, who aban
doned briefly his duties as Secretary of the
National Republican Committee to see the
great assembly of the G. A. R. There is no
reserve about Comrade McComas. He
said to-day: "I am more than satisfied with
the situation. In the National Committee
Chairman Carter is doing prodigies. He is
resourceful, tireless and alert, but every
stroke is counting. He is ably leading
the committee, and General Clarkson is
seconding his eflorts wisely and lovally.
The other National Committee members are
all at work, and documents and speakers are
now commencing to pour out to the people.
Yes, I am confident that the drift is con
tinually toward Mr. Harrison, and each day
it becomes stronger. The situation in New
York and the Eest is one to inspire the
greatest confidence among well-wishers for

Significant Declaration From the South.
"The force bill cry has been satisfactorily
met by President Harrison's patriotic ap
peal to the people of the country to assure
a free ballot and a fair count by means of a
non-partisan regulating commission. A
significant answer to all this wild force bill
cry is the enthusiasm of the People's
party Democrats, white men, mind you
in Alabama, Tennessee, North Caro
lina and Georgia, . for a .free
ballot and a fair count Nothing
has been so significant as the declared de
claration of the men of these States to vol
unteer as deputy marshals to watch the
count in their States, whioh they testify has
been and is fraudulent in every way. The
Democratio party has difficulty in every
way because the 'white men in the South
have revolted against party methods.
"We have found a great demand for
President Harrison's letter throughout the
country, combined with an equal demand,
lately, for Peck's report"
rrospects for the Next Encampment

ministration of the G. A. R. was called to

"Vfeissert A delegation from the Depart

date of the next encampment to be held at
Indianapolis for the first werk in Septem

the council decided to leave the de
termination of the date to the Executive
Committee. The council made provision for
the future appointment of this committee,
"Which will consist of seven memhers and

SEARCHING THROUGH TOE MUSEDU
loe Last Daj of the Grand Army Visitors
at the Capital.
A TIME OF BIGHT-SEEING FOR ALL
"Washington-, Sept 2a Shortly after
noon to-day the rain ceased, the clouds
broke and the bright sunshine appeared.
It soon dried up the mud from the streets
and afforded those who remained here re
newed opportunity to takn in the sights
and to visit places of interest in surround
ing cities. Many took advantage of the
bright afternoon to visit Mt Vernon. It is
estimated tbat about 30,000 of the visiting
strangers made the pilgrimage to Mt Ver
non during the present week.
The closing event in the official pro
gramme for the encampment took place
this afternoon. The steamer Louise left her
wharf for a trip down the river, having on
board the members of the encampment
They were the guests of the Citizens' Com
mittee, aud a large number were in the
party. The opportunity to meet personal
ly the men who had contributed in a large
degree to the success of the encampment
was appreciated by the Grand Arm v men.
The entire affair was under the direction
of Captain James G. Bell, the Chairman of
a sub-Committee on Entertainment A stop
was made at the United States proving
grounds at Indian Head to give an op
portunity to those who desired to inspect
Looking for Their Lost Legs.
Perhaps the best patronized places during
the encampment were the Fish Commission
building, the.Army Medical Museum and
the National Museum. At the Fish Corri
mission headquarters there has been a jam
since Monday. Nearly all of the visitors
dropped In At the Army Medical Museum,
where, since Monday last, the crowd has
averaged 20,000 a day. The prinoipal ob
jects of interest were Booth's vertebra and
Guiteau's spleen. Up in the gallery where
the collection of gunshot wounds on bones
is kept there was au Interest
ing gathering. Several veterans de
clared they had found their missing
bones, and stood for a long time contem
plating the long-lost adjuncts. The first
question one veteran of the Department of
Pennsylvania asked, as he approached the
guide 'in the Museum, was: "Say, dootor,
where's my leg?" The guide was for the
moment astonished, but the veteran had a
cork leg which he exhibited, and said he
had left the original at Malvern Hill. He
was shot in the leg by a piece of chain, and
the wound was so peculiar that the doctors
put the limb in alcohol and he wanted to
see it. Where was it keot? He was sent
upstairs, and when the reporter left he was
puzzled over two specimens and did not
know which was bis.

ILLINOIS IS SAFE.
John M." Langston Thinks Harrison' Will
Win In Virginia In Spite of Mahone
Tho Little General Won't Support Con
John M. Langston, -of Virginia, who is as
well known to the people of the country as
Mahone and "Wise, was at the Union depot
last evening, going home. He had been to
Paris, I1L, attending a celebration com
memorating the emancipation proclamation
oi Lincoln. The attendance was very
lerge, Governor Fifer and other State offi
cials being among the speakers. It wns a
non-political gathering, but Mr, Langston
said when he incidentally mentioned Har
rison as one of the great men of the cen
tury, the cheering was terrific: The Vir
ginian talked to a number of Republicans
who assured him that Illinois was all right
The school question is not considered a
factor. There are not more than 6,000 Ger
man Lutherans in the State, and they are a
different class of people from those living
"Harrison is a very popular man to-day,"
continued Mr. Langston. "The illness of
his wife and his devotion to her have
brought to bimthe sympathy of the coun
try. Then Cleveland's delay in issuing his
letter of acceptance is taken by the people
as an indication of weakness. ' Cleveland is
waiting until the last minute to take ad
vantage of anything that might turn up.
Hill's speech did not help the Democratio
party, either. All these things have con
tributed to make Republican prospects very
"We have a fighting chance of carrying
Virginia, but Mahone is a disturbing factor.
I have wished often that he was over in
Ohio or Pennsylvania. He is opposed to
Harrison, and now he has announced tbat
he will fight any Republican nominee for
Congress. We can elect four Congressmen,
and we intend to do it The truth is
Mahone is selfish, and cares for nothingln
politics but to control the patronage. His
object now Is to turn the State over to the
Demoorats, so that he can be the dispenser
of the offices in the name
of the Republican party. I have
made all sorts ot sacrifices to uphold Mo
hone's handB, and now he turns on us like
an enemy. He was never known to spend
a dollar for political work, but he always
wants to know how much the National
Committee can give. In the prevent fight
it is better for Mr. Carter to keep out We
can carry the State without his aid and in
spite of Mahone. We will elect Bawden,
Judge Woods and two other candidates to
Congress. Mahone couldn't be elected a
Congressman from my district, which has a
Republican majority 'of 8,000. The colored
voters would not support him. They have
lost faith in the little General."
CHKISTOPHEB IS CONFIDENT
Mr. Magee Returns From a Political Trip
Through the South.
C. L. Magee returned yesterday from Al
abama, where he had been on a political
mission. He believes there is a bare possi
bility of the Republicans carrying Alabama
or some other Southern State. He also be
lieves that General Weaver, the People's
party candidate, has an equal ahow with
Cleveland for Alabama ana Georgia.
"I was in the South but a short time,"
Mr. Magee said, "but while there I found
that brilliant rainbows appear in the south
ern sky as well as in the northern heavens.
Thev seem to be just as far from the
earth down there as they are up here. The
Democrats were unable to overtake the
northern rainbows four years ago and I am
not sure tbat we can reach any ot them in
the South this year,
"I think Harrison will be elected, Dan
Martin, who has just gone over from Phila
delphia to New York will, I think, help
materially in carrying the big State."
