IN MEMORY OF GRANT.
Statuo Unveiled at
An ImnwH Throng Does Honor to tlie
Memory of the Deceased Soldier Grand
Street Parade Oration By Judge.
Ciiicago, Oct. 7. The superb eques
trian statue erected by the citizens of
Chicago to the honor of the late Gen.
U. S. Grant was unveiled to-day in the
presence of an immense concourse of
people. The ceremonies were at once
impressive and inspiring. Business
in the city had been almost wholly
suspended. The banks, exchanges,
government and municipal offices were
clcretl and the employed classes gener
ally were given a holiday. The result
was an outpouring of people from the
heart of the city, such as has been sel
dom witnessed here. It was recalled by
many of those who flocked toward Lin
coln park to-day that a similar exodus
under far different circumstances how
ever, had occurred just about twenty
years ago. This is October 7. Two

days from now and Chicago will pass
the twentieth anniversary of her great
Cre. On the 9th of October, 1871, thou
sands of refugees homeless and impov
erished, sought shelter in Lincoln park.
and for days afterwards tents were
pitched for these people around the
very spot which now marks the site of
the Grant monument. In different
spirits and with different purpose did
tbe immense crowds move through the
north side of the city to-day.
In October, 1871, this entire section
was a wilderness of ruin. To-lay
it is rebuilt more beautiful and
more substantial than ever. Tlie
scorched and withered leaves of the
trees in Chicago's prettiest park have
long since given place to emerald foli
age. The great calamity of 1871 is
almost forgotten, and the city which
was then sunk in the depths of despair
is now more prosperous and hopeful
than at any period in its remarkable
The great soldier of the rebellion had
scarcely breathed his last before tlie
project of erecting a fitting monument
to his memory was broached here.
It was scarcely suggested before
the necessary amount of money
was raised by popular subscrip
tion. The complete work would
have been exhibited to the public one
year ago had not the great casting met
with an accident. From the very first
there has never been a question raised
as to tho means necessary for the com
pletion of the project. The entire mat
ter was settled at the start with that
business-like promptitude character
istic of Chicago, and to-day the noblest
monument on American soil was un
veiled as the result of the patriotic de
votion and liberality of Chicago's citi
zens. The statue sets north and south upon
an immense arch.
It is now tho most imposing object
that the lake mariner beholds along
the north shore of the city. Below it
runs the great north shore seawall and
drive, which when completed will be
the grandest embankment in the world.
Lake Michigan stretches out in front
and beneath an October sun it reflected
to-day all the delicate tints of the rain
bow. Back of the statue is the famous
electric fountain; on all sides are beau
tiful terraces with flower beds and foli
age. The location, the view, the base,
the statue, all combined to make this
memorial to the silent soldier of Ga'cna
the most eloquent that could be de
vised. It is somewhat difficult to estimate
the number of people who were prcs-
ent to-day when the ceremonies began.
Probably a figure touching closely
upon 250,000 wonld not be too high.
The park swarmed with well dressed,
gaily uniformed and happy people of
all ages, sexes, colors, creeds and
nationalities. There was an abundance
of bunting displayed, both on the lake
and shore. The naval display in which
one hundred Chicago merchantmen
took part, and which was given addi
tional eclat by the presence of the
United States vessels Michigan,
Johnson and Fessenden, added
much to the splendor of the
occasion. This display was in charge
of some of the oldest and most promi
nent of Chicago's mariners, notably,
Capt J. S. Dunham, Capt. A. W. Good
rich, Hugh McMillan, X. E. Holmes
and J. C Evans. The United States
vessels of course were in command of
their regular officers. In addition to
the merchantmen, the lake in front of
the park was occupied by a fleet of ex
cursion steamboats, numerous private
yachts, tug boats, etc Frequent sa
lutes were fired and the national colors
displayed conspicuously from every
The arrangements for the disposition
of the crowds were quite perfect
These were in charge of Gen. Joseph
Stockton, assisted by the entire police
department, and particularly by In
spector Schaack, in whose district Lin
coln park is located. The procession
having reached the park a barrier was
erected at the Lake Shore drive and no
vehicles were permitted to follow.
The space around the monument
for the processionists was roped
off. This space extended north of
tbe monument about six hundred feet
to a path, leading across one of the lake
bridges. Ropes were also placed one
hundred feet south of the electric fount
ain. In each case these lines extended
east to the new regatta course. On
'the west the spectators were allowed
to approach the edge of the drive skirt
ing the monument. All the space out

aw Lake Shore drive was open to spec

was unobstructed. The view from tlM
lake was also clear, and thousands of
people witnessed the ceremonies from
the decks of vessels. A temporary
bridge was thrown across the break in
the e3planade for the convenience of
spectators, and three pontoon bridges
were swung across the regatta course.
The managers endeavored in everyway
to carry out the idea that this was a
popular demonstration and did every
thing possible to provide for the popu
lace, but at best the crowd was so great
that, on all such occasions, thousands
were unable to get within sight of the
monument, and, of course, thousands
were correspondingly disappointed.
The gunboats anchored six hundred
feet east of the new drive and opposite
the monument. The land saluting

V. Kautz, commanding the department
of the Columbia, in his annual report
to the war department, speaks of the
repeated troubles between Indians and
white settlers in the Kootenai river
country. The Indians in that section
are unprovided with an agent and seem
to have no one to look to for aid or
counsel. In the near future a great in
crease in the number of settlers will
succeed the building of the Great
Northern railroad, and trouble will
follow unless some provision is made
In closing his report the general says:
"I shall in a few months close my
duties on the active list, and this is the
excuse I have for offering what I con
sider tho raost valuable suggestions
my long service in the line of the army,
which began forty-five years ago in the
grade of a private, can furnish I re
gard as the highest duty of our small
army in time of peace to bo the acqui
sition and dissemination of military
knowledge among the people. To
this end the armj- should become to a
certain extent an educational institu
tion, and each post, as far as practi
cable, a military school, with the ob
ject of qualifying every enlisted man,
so far as possible, to be able to instruct
and prepare tlie citizen who volunteers
to serve in time of war. For this pur
pose the recruits for the army should
be obtained from the young, ambitious
and energetic sons of patriotic citizens,
and the army should cease to be the
refuge of the inefficient, indolent and
wandering element of tho country.
The recruits should be furnished from
all parts of the union in proportion to
the population, to serve, as a rule, only
one enlistment and then to bo returned
to their homes tossrve as officers in the
event of war and as instructors for the
state military organizations in time of
peace. The support of the government
to this end would raise the standing of
the enlisted men at once to one of re
spectability, and secure the enlistment
of proper material, which can not now
be obtained in view of tho low estima
tion which the average civilian enter
tains for the soldier in time of peace.
It would also give a distinctive and re
publican character to our army, which
I regard as very essential under our
form of government We can not hope
to popularize the army so long as we
ape the methods and details of Eu
ropean armies, and there is no necessity
for so doing."

The Itrport That Germany Had Concluded
a Reclproritr Treaty.
Washington-, Oct 1:1, A report pub

had been concluded with Germany by
which the cereal products of the United
States are to be admitted free of duty
is not true.
Negotiations have for some time been
in progress between the govern
ments of Germany and the United
States with a view, on the part of Ger
many, to secure the continued free ad
mission of her sugar into this countrv
in return for certain concessions of
customs duty to be extended by Gp;
many to American products of various
descriptions. It is learned, however,
that these negotiations are still in an
incomplete stage, with good prospects,
however, of being brought to a satis
factory conclusion before the first

dent will possess the power to issue
a proclamation imposing thc duties

the St. Louis Carnival Attracts .Larger
Crowds Than Ever Before Points of In
terest. Saturday, October 17, at 10 o'clock the great
Bt. Louis Exposition of 1891 will close Its doors
and tho carnival will be ovor. It will be held
asaln in 1SS3, but ten months Is a long time to
wait, and the lover of a good time and of a
view of the beautiful should pay a visit to St
Lonis before October 17. Fair week proved a
greater attraction than ever, tho programma
of onusement being so full and complete test
tae most exacting were more than gratified.
Tho fair vras voted sn Improvement on past
ycara, owing to the ns:nbr of novelties Intro
duced and the strikii? zzrsy of exhibits from
all parts ot tbe Union. Ia tho eld days, which
only tnded some three years co, crowds on
their way to tho fair trcre annoyed by the in
sufficiency ct tho st re ct car accommodation, bat
althourU the crowd this year was the largest
on record, there was no difficulty on this score.
Two elcctno roads and ono cable line have
been built, making a total ot seven roads to
the Fair Grounds, ablo to carry from 13,000 to
15,003 passengers on boor easily, but whose
cars were crowded to their utmost capacity
during the mornings and evenings. Ia addition
to this, tbe streets aro in such fine order that
driving oct ia hacks and buggies was a luxury.
Of the Veiled Prophet It is unnecessary to
fay much. The uniqueness of the pageant, the
enormous crowds along the route of the parade.
uu inu presence in mil ureas 01 t.uuu invited
guests at the ball, all show that fourteen an
nual Uslts have endeared the mystic monarch
not only to the people of St. Louis, but alo of
the West, and Indeed the East, and that far
from thc inttrcat fading as the norclty ceased
to exist, familiarity breeds in this instance ad
miration that cannot be overestimated.
During thc remainder ot the festival season
there Is much to interest the spectator, and
many defer their visits until after Fair week In
order to avoid tho crush such an enormous
Catherine of people naturally creates. St.
Louis Is handling the crowds this year ia a
more systematic manner than ever, and,
tLcnks to well managed bureaus and registers,
all are being provided for comfortably and at
reasonabic rates. St. Louis docs not bleed its
guests nr advance prices on the ground that
the law of supply ana demand warrants suci a
course: it rather treat its visitor like hon
ored guests an 1 provides as much absolutely
free entertainment as possible.
CoU Gllinorc will wind up his 1S31 engage
ment on October IT, and In thc meantime he is
providing four genuine musical treats daily.
Ho has a habit of reserving tho very best to
thc last, and some of tho concluding concerts
will be masterpieces indeed.
As a natural result ot the wonderful attrac
tions St. Louis possesses in a social manner
to the people of surrounding states, tho com
mercial interests of the city are being aug
mentcd in a remarkablo manner, tor tho visit
ors who come year after year on plcasuro bent
havo at thc same timo an opportunity of
witnessing ine an commercial and manufac
turing establishments in which St Louis
excels all other cities in the world in many
lines, and thus business relations are formed
which redound to the profit both ot the visitor
and thc city.
