Galebduro, 111., Oct. B.—President
Harrison arose early this morning, but
he was not early enough to escape the
thousands of eager Peorians who had as
sembled around the hotel in that city,
struggling for a sight of the distinguish
ed visitor. At 7 o'clock a band serenad
ed the president, and a few min
utes later the mayor and city coun
cil, accompanied by Q. A. R.'posts and
a company of the Illinois national guard,
escorted the party to the train. The
march was a triumphant one, aud all
Peoria turned out to do homage to the
chief executive. At the depot over 5,000
people were assembled, and the presi
dent, being introduced by Mayor Starke,
made a speech.
At the conclusion of the president's
address, Elsie Leslie Lyde, the child
actress of Little Lord Fauntleroy, came
and presented the president with a beau
tiful boquet on behalf of the G. A. R.
posts and citizens of Peoria. The presi
dent expressed his thanks by kissing
the little lady, and amid the cheers of
the crowd, the train pulled out for Gales
burg.
At Peoria the presidential party was
met by a delegation from Galesburg on
a special train.
Near Galesburg, the president, after
according a reception to the old veterans
on board, went forward with Secretary
Tracy and greeted Engineer Hilton who
was a member of the president's brig
ade. On invitation of the engineer, the
president and Secretary Tracy mounted
the engine and rode in the cab with
the engineer for a few miles. The
engineer gracefully yielded the responsi
bility of pulling the whistle for stations
and crossings, and the firemen con
siderately turned over the bell rope to
Secretary Tracy.
The principal event of the day was a
reunion at' Galesburg, of the first bri
gade of the thirty-sixth division of the
twentieth army corps, the former com
mand of General Harrison. The occa
sion was a gathering not only of old vet
erans forrrerly associated with the pres
. ident, but of Grand Army men from all
sections of the west. Excursions from
all the principal 1 cities within a
radius of boo miles added to
the assemblage, and it was estimated
tiiat the audience which greeted Presi
dent Harrison at Galesburg was not less
than 25,000.
At the depot the presidential party
was met by council and an
army of veterans, and escorted to the
hotel, where in an hour's reception, dis
tinguished citizens from all parts of the
state and the west greeted the president.
Upon an arcii on the reviewing stand
beneath /Inch the president stood, were
the words: "We welcome our presi
dent."
Shortly after 11 o'clock there passed
in review the veterans of the twentieth
army corns, 2,600 school children of cent
ral Illinois, and thousands of citizens.
.Among the distinguished people on
the stand were Adjutant General Vance,
of Illinois, who appeared as the repre
sentative of Governor Fifer, who was
unable to leave his official duties:
Secretary of State Pierson, Mayor
Stevens, Congressmen Post, Henderson,
General Arthur A. Smith, General
Miles, U. S. A., and General Dustin,
department commander of the G. A. R.,
of Illinois.
At the conclusion of the parade, the
party repaired to the speakers' stand in
front of the court house. There Mayor
Stevens welcomed the president to
Galesburg in a somewhat lengthy speech.
The president responded briefly to the
address of welcome, thanking the citi
zens of Galesburg and Illinois for their
cordial greeting; and to all the old vet
erans he extended the greeting of com
radship.
,At the conclusion of the meeting, the
party repaired to Knox colllege, where
' the corner stone of Alumni hall was to
be laid by the presfdent. Dr. Newton
Eateman, president of Knox college,
pronounced an invocation, and Profes
sor Milton Comstock read a sketch of
the origin and growth of the college.
Professor J. A. Adams then introduced
the president, who made an appropriate
Address.
Following this the corner stone was
placed in position, and the president
carefully closed it and covered the seams
with mortar. The party then went to
the hotel for dinner and at 3 o'clock
a re-union of the First brig
ade, the President's old command, was
held at the opera house.
The appearance of President Harrison
on the stage was occasion for an out
burst of cheers. General Dustin called
the meeting to order and announced to
the chief executive the fact that he had
been elected president of the First
Brigade association by a unanimous
vote.
After the applause had somewhat sub
sided President Harrison addressed the
veterans of his old brigade. After this
the veterans passed before the president
who shook hands with them and spoke a
kind word to each. The party then re
turned to the hotel where the president
remained until evening.
During the afternoon an old lady call
ed and exhibited to the president a let
ter which made her the most welcome
visitor of the day. She was a sister of
the instructor of his youth, Joseph N.
Porter, of Indiana, and the letter she ex
hibited was one written by the president
at the age of 10 years, in 1843.
This evening the president attended a
banquet given by the Phi Delta Theta
society, at college hall, and later on a
banquet was given by the. First Brigade,
niakii ,: brief remarks at each.

ing to Escape.
Birmingham, Ala., Oct. B.—Rube Bur
rows, the noted outlaw captured yester
day, was killed this morning at Linden
while endeavoring to escape. He asked
the guard to hand him his saddle bags,
in which were some crackers. The guard
obligingly complied, when instead of
crackers, Rube drew forth two six-shoot
ers and compelled the guard to undo his
manacles, and then locked him in. He
would have been at large now, had he
not determined to get back the money
taken from him yesterday. Going to
the hotel he demanded this from Officer
Carter, and the shooting followed, Bur
rows being killed and Carter desperately
wounded.
THE WORLD'S FAIR.
Commissioner De Young's Plan of Clas
sification Adopted.
Chicago, Oct. B.—The classification
committee of the national world's fair
commission completed the most import
ant portion of its work today, by decid
ing upon twelve great departments into
which the exhibitions of the fair shall be
grouped. They are:
A —Agriculture, farm machinery and
appliances, forestry and forest products.
B —Viticulture, horticulture and flori
culture.
C—Livestock.
D—Fish, fisheries, fish products and
apparatus for fishing.
E —Mines, mining and metallurgy.
F—Machinery.
G —Transportation and inter-com
niunication.
H—Electricity and electrical appli
ances.
J —Manufactures.
_L —Music, education, literature, en
gineering, public works, sociology.
M —Progress of human labor and in
ventions.
The departments are practically those
proposed by Commissioner De Young,
of California, and agreed upon by the
committee. The strongest fight "made
by Mr. De Young against the classifica
tion prepared by Professor Goode, was
placing of viticulture, horticulture and
floriculture in the agricultural depart
ment, and he insisted in the interest of
the Pacific coast, as well as the expo
sition, that they be given a separate de
partment, and "finally carried this and
other points.
Mr. Dr. Young left for the Pacific
coast tonight.
Congressman Morrow, of California,
was shown over the site by Commission
er-at-large McDonald, of California, to
day. Mr. Morrow expressed himself as
delighted with,it,, and said: "When I
return home I can tell our people that
the sites are suitable in every way, and
I don't think better selections could have
been made,"
Commissioner McDonald has been
very busy for a week or more past, visit
ing exhibitions and fairs in the north
west in the interest of the world's fair.
STANFORD'S RETURN.
He Tells How the New Tariff is Regarded
Abroad.
New York, Oct. B.—ln an interview
today Senator Stanford said the report
that he proposed to form an opposition
line to the Southern Pacific was not
true. Speaking on the subject of the
tariff the senator said: "I have not
paid sufficient attention to be able to
discuss jt in detail, but on the whole I
am inclined to view it with favor.
Nowhere in Europe have I heard
any opposition expressed to the new tar
iff, except in France. The Britons did
not seem to be much alarmed. In
France, however, a wild panic prevails.
The impression mnst prevalent among
the French people is, that the new tariff
has been instituted in revenge for
the exclusion from France of the Ameri
can hog."

Happy Hunting Grounds.
Salem, Ore., Oct. B.—The last chief of
the Tillamook tribe of Indians has gone
to the happy hunting grounds fabled in
Indian lore. ''Old Adam" is dead.
Word has just been received at Salem
that he died a few days ago at his. cabin
on the Miami river, below Bay City, on '
Tillamook bay, Tillamook county. His
remains were borne to th i Indian burying I
S round at Jawbone, Bay City, and there
epositedby his sorrowing relatives, the
remnants of the decaying tribe. Before
the "Boston" man introduced the curses
of civilization among the sons of the for
est belonging to the Tillamook tribe.they
numbered many, but now only twenty
lull-bloods remain to hand down the
traditions of their fathers, and now
since Adam's death leaves them without
a leader, they will no doubt
quickly scatter and vanish from
the face of the earth. "Old
Adam" was very old. Indians, who
knew him well, variously estimated his
age at from 100 to 140 years. He was a
good Indian, never drank nor used
tpbacco. Adam saw the first ship that
entered the Columbia river, and to hear
hint tell of his sensation at its sight, was
an interesting occasion,

that the cry of a general famine in Ire
