Scenes and Incidents Connected "With
NewYokjc, Oct. 28. The lain storm
which prevailed all day yesterday ceased
last night, but the weather this morning is
very unpromising for the festivities
which are to take place in connection with
the inauguration of the Bartholdi Statue of
Liberty. A slight fog hangs over the city
and obscures in a measure the elaborate
decorations of buildings with which the
city lias been heautifled. French and
American Hags arc flying from house tops
and windows in every direction, and a gen
eral holiday appearance is presented by
moving bodies of soldiers, militia, civic or
ganizations, and by the. collection on the
sidewalks of great crowds of people. Busi
ness during the day will be almost entirely
suspended; public schools will be closed
and all Kew York will join in tho celebra
tion. Visitors from all sections of the country
have been coming into the city for two days
past, and this morning thousands more
were added to the great throng. The storm
greatly interfered with the work on Bed
"loe's island yesterday, bnt as little was left
to do it did not matter much whether it
rained or not. The platform that has stood
in one of the northwestern angles of the en
closure was l emoved and a platform for
the speakers stands ready for their recep
tion. A handsome silk French flag will be
placed over the face of the statue. At the
word from President Cleveland, it will be
drawn, unveiling the head of the goddess.
The land parade, which moved out at 9
o'clock, includes between 25,000 and 35,000
men. The head of the column will reach,
the battery about noon. The naval parade
starts about 12.45. The president will
reach 'Bedloc's island, it is expected, about
3, and the exercises commence as soon as
he has reached his seat.
It is estimated that fully a million people
took part in the festivities tpday. From
the boundary line cast and west at the river
fronts the host of people moved till when
nearly to the line of march there grew to

the police lines and set back by its con

Fifth avenue. Both sides of the avenue
were crowded with people, who waved
hats and applauded loudly as the presi

States naval brigade came next with the
engineer corps, followed by the Second
regiment, S. X. G., New York detachment,

SEX.VTOB EVAET S' ADDRESS:
Mr. President: The scene upon which
tnis vast assemoiage is couectea displays a
transaction in human affairs which finds no
precedent or record in the past, nor in the
long future we mav feel assured will it ever
confront its counterpart or parallel. How
can we fitly frame in words the sentiments.
the motives, theTvelcomc which have filled
and moved the hearts and minds of two
1 great nations in the birth of the noble con
ception, the grand embodiment, the com
plete execution of tins stupendous monu
ment now unveiled to the admiring gaze of
men. and emblazoned in its coronation of
tho finished work with the plaudits of the
world? What ornaments of speech, what
eloquence of human voice, what costlv
gifts of gold, frank incense and myrrh of
our hearts tnoute can wo tiring to
the celebration of this consumate
triumph of genius, of skill, of labor, which
speaks today and will speak forever; the
thoughts, the feelings, the friendships of
these.two populous, powerful and free re
publics, knit together in their .pride aiuf
joy at their own established freedom, and
in the hope and purpose that the glad
light of liberty shall enlighten the world?
The genius, tlie courage, the devotion of
spirit, the indomitable will of the great
sculptor, Bartholdi, whose well-earned
fame justified the trust committed to him,
together wrought out of ' stubborn brass
and iron the artist's dream, the airy con
ception of. his mind, the shapely sculpture
of his cunning hand, till here it stands
upon its firm base as if a natural playmate
ot elements, fearing no harm from all
winds that blow. As with the French peo
ple, so with our own. the whole means for
the great expenditures of work .have come
from the free contributions ot the people
themsehes, and thus the common people of
both nations may justly point to a greater
and nobler monument m and of the historv,
and progress, and welfare of the human
race than emperor, or king, or governments
have ever realized. The statue on the
Fourth of July, 188-1, in Paris was deliv
ered to and accepted by the gov
ernment, by the authority of the
president of the United States,
delegated and executed by Ministor Morton.
Today in the name of the citizens of the
united States who nave cempleted the peu
estal and raised thereon the statue, and of
the volunteer committee who have exc
cutcd the will of their fellow citizens I de
clare in your presence, and in the presence
of- these distinguished guests from France
and of this august assemblage of the hon
orable and honored men of our land and of
this countless multitude, that this pedestal
and united work of the two republics is
completed and surrendered to the care anu
keeping of the government and people of
the united States.
At the conclusion of Senator Lvarts'
speech the signal wa3 given and the veil
was withdrawn from the face of the stat
ute amidst the booming. of cannons and the
shrieking of whistles from hundreds of
steamers aud other crafts gathered around
the island. This indescribable ovation
continued for fully half an hour. Senator
Evarts then, Avhen the firing and hooting
subsided, introduced Grover Cleveland,
president of the united States, who in ac
cepting the statute said:
TUE PRESIDENT'S KESrONSE.
The people of the United States accept
with gratitndc fnam. their brethren of the
French republic tfic grand arid completed
work of art we here inaugurate. This
token of the affection and consideration of
the people of France demonstrates
the great kiuship of republics,
and conveys to us the assurance
that in our efforts to commend to mankind
the excellency of government resting upon
popular will, we still have beyond the
American continent a steadfast life. "We
are not here today, before the representa
tives of a fierce and warlike god, filled
with wrath and vengeance, but we joyous
ly contemplate instead our own deity,
keeping watch and ward before the open
gates of America, and greater than . all
that have been celebrated in ancient Troy.
Instead of grasping in her hand thunder
bolts of terror and of death, she
holds aloft tho light that illuminates
the way to man's enfranchise
ment. V. c v, id not forget that
Liberty has here made her home, nor
shall her chosen altar be neglected; willing
votaries will constantly keep alive its nres
and these shall gleam upon the shores of
our sister republic in the east. Reflected
tlir.iipn jsnrl ininod "with nusworinf nivs n
stream of light shall pierce the darkless of
ignorance anil man s oppression until liber
ty enlightens the world.
After President Cleveland came M. A.
LeFaivre, minister plenipotentiary, who
spoke as the representative of the republic
of France. Ho Eaid:
i.r: rAivr.E's addkess.
In the presence of soiraposingan assembly
and a3 a prelude to a ceremony which con
solidates the circle of friendships of two
great nations, it is an honor and a hearty
pleasure to me to present to vou m the
name of the French nation the .ducerc and
warm assurance of sympathic participation.
The inauguration of today is one splendid
with solemn and impressive import, for it
is one of thecc which form an epoch in
history. This colossal statue of liberty,
moulded by a great artist, would anywhere
attract attcutinn and deference, but here on
American soil it evinces special
significance, symbolizing the ex
istence and development ot your
nation during mre than 100 years. To us
Americans and Frenchmen liberty is no
only a common doctrine, it is also a family
tie." From the alliance between the two
nation's sprang forth the drizzling expecta
tions of its expansion and radiance through
His universe. It will be an eternal honorto
France to have seconded the effort of yo'ir
heroism, and to have understood zn th"
first dawn the sublime prospects which
were promised to mankind hy your gener
ous ardour. This symbol winch we inau
gurate todBV is not a mere allegory
pledge of a fraternal union between the two
greatest republics in the world it is greeted
simultaneously by more than one hundred
million of freemen who tendered fricndly
hands to each other across the ocean.
Among the thousands of "Europeans who
sre daily conveyed to these hospitable
shores, no one will passbctore this glorious
emblem without immediately precciving its
moral greatness, and without greeting it
wish rpci't and thankfulness.
The memorial address was delivered by
Hon. Chauncey M. Depew. Then the au

colors were displayed.
For exactly half an honr this kept up.
"When comparative quiet had been restored,

applause. He spoke in French and with

Mr. Chauncy M Depue wore skull caps
while speaking; hut the octogenarian canal
digger faced the storm boldly and without
any covering to his si.vcred head. De Les
seps said in part:
Citizens of America: I hasten to accept
your gracious invitation extended by the
government of the great American republic.
It is a generous idea on tho part of him
who presided over the erection of the
statue of liberty. It honors equally those
who have conceived and those who under
stood it in accepting it. Liberty in en
lightning the world; grand beacon, raised
amidst the waves of the shore of free
America; in disembarking under its light
one would know that he treads on soil
where individual initiative has developed
its full strength, where progress is a re
ligion, where great fortunes become popu
lar by their charitable enterprises in en
couraging education ahd science, and
scattering abroad fruitful seeds for the
future. You are right, American citizens,
to be proud of your "go-ahead." The rep
resentatives of France today see America
powerful and free, and they present to it
this emblem to proclaim that she has
grown great for liberty. Soon, gentlemen,
we shall meet again to celebrate a new
conquest of peace revoir at Panama, (ap
plause) where the flag of the thirty-eight
states of North America will be seen float
ing along with the banners of tho inde
pendent states of South America and will
form in the new world for the good of hu
manity a peaceful and fruitful alliance of
the France Latin-Anglo-Saxton races.

Milwaukee. Wis., Oct. 23. The lim
ited passenger train on the Chicago, Mil
waukee & St. Paul road which left here
last night at 10 was derailed at Ryocenc,
when about three hours out and thrown
into an old stone quany. Particulars hard
to get, but it is admitted at the general
office of the company in this city that oue
coach and three sleepers were wrecked and
5 or G persons killed. Physicians left the
city on the early train for the scene of the
9:30' a. in It Is now reported that
out of ten persons who occupied the
passenger coach seven were killed. A
gentleman from Chicago and two childaen
from Winona, Minn,, were the only ones
saved from the passenger coach. None of
the occunants of the sleeper were injured
Nothing has yet been learned in regard to
the number wounded.
Engineer Searle, at first reported killed,
was only slightly hurt. He arrived in the
city at 11 this morning, lie says that when
the crasli came lie was inroivn down;c
twecu two large packing cases, which
rested across his body. His lungs filled
with smoke and at lir-t he thought he w:
injured internally and that he was bleeding
at the lungs. Jle was taken lrom ths de

B. Loenbach, a job printer of this city,
was on the wrecked train, lie mivh the
scenes after the accident werq harrowing.
The passenger coach, which he saya con
taincd between fifteen and twenty persons,
was telescoped at both ends nnd the fire
and smoke that enveloped the wreck
prevented tho iuiprisoncd and in
jured passengers from escaping. Pas
sengers from the sleepers gathered
around tue blazing car-!, but tlicy were
powerless to render assistance. Men nnd
women could be seen tearing their hair in
the agony of the moment; frightful screams
issued from the death trap. One heavy
woman in particular, he says, tore up one
of the seats with almost superhuman
strength, and endeavored to break her way
out of the naming car but her strength
failed, she fell to the floor nnd met a ter
rible death. Only three persons escaped
from tho passenger car, Mr. Loenbach
says, a man and two children. Tho man
was observed to force m way through
tlie ventilator on top ol tlie car, and mmm
clothing on his body from the waist dMHi
ward burned off, and his flesh roasted and
bleeding from cuts inflicted by broken
glass. Every one of the wrecked cars
were consumed with the exception of the
last sleeper, which was cut away from the
burning wreck. All the IkkJics of tlie vic
tims were burned in the wreck.
Miiwaukek, "Wis., Oct. 2S. A special
to the Evening Wisconsin from Portage
says: Last night soon after midnight tiio
west bound limited was ditdied at the
East Rio siding, a Miiall Elation about 115
miles cast of this city on the main Jfne of
the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road.
There are two side tracks at the place and
at the time the train was due thcrp last
night, both were occupied by freights, one
by a iild train, tho other by train No. 1-1,
conductor II. P. IJankey of this city,
which liad just pulled in from the iet to
allow the limited to pa. No. M was very
long aud the conductor wa at the head of
the train relying upon the brakemau to at
tend to the switch. One report ays the
rear brakeman whes business it was to
close the switch after tnc train, far sgme
reason neglected to do so.
Another and more probable story ii that
he started hack to close the switch, hut be
fore he could reach it, the limited, which
docs not stop at any except largo pl.ices,
came tearing down the grade at fifty miles
an hour and left the rail at the open
switch. Tiic sidmgs are in a cut where the
road curves so that the switch light cannot
be seen from the cast until the train is with
in a few rods, so that the engineer of the
limited could not tJX the switch light was
turned wrong until too late to siip.
The engine left the track, ran a short dis

reached his oflice. Ho said in reojonso to
a question, that ho had little information to
ghe beyond what had been given. He
believed that twelve prrsons lot their
lives. Of those he had been able to gvt but
four names; those were Mrs. Schcrer and
her mother iu-law. Mrs. R. Johns. Their
two children were saved. The poor
mother, almost enveloped, thought of her
children first and succeeded in pushing
them out of tho window. There wem
two women "wearing tho grab of nuns,
both of whom had passes; one was a
Mother Superior of some convent. Infor
mation received here, loads to thi
belief that ihe was" thn Mother
SuDerior of a convent at Now Castlo
in Fou du Lac county; the order is kuown
as the third order of 'Franciscan sisters. A
livrchaut at whoso store the sister bought
goods says there were three of them and
they had'jheir packages taken to tho depot
to go up on the night train to St. Paul.
Tlie other victims whoc names Managr
Miller had wore Louis Brinker of Ashland,
and Emil Woldersdorf, a merchant of Col
umbus, Wis. The only man who escaped
from the burning car "was Dr. Smith of
Chicago. If the merchant is correct about
there being three instead of two Franciscan
sisters who were going on that train there
should be one added to Mr Miller's list of
victims, making in all thirteen. This fs
probably the full number. It may be scv
oral days before the names of the others are
