The cornerstone laying took place
ufter appropriate ceremonies, whlck
were participated In by the Prel-dent
of the I'nlted States, Governor
August E. Wlllson of Kentucky,
former Governor Joseph W, Folk, of
Missouri, president of tho Lincoln

representing not only he con-
llicting siues in the great struggle.

white nnd black races, as well as the
different sections of the country,
spoke from the same platform and
with the same flag, a splendid now
specimen of the Stars and Stripes

Iev Negroes in Crowd.
The ceremony was full of interesting
and novel features apart from
the occasion which Inspired it, and
not the least Interesting was the
character of the crowd which composed
the audience. There were
probably six or eight thousand people
present. Many came In special
trains from Louisville nnd other
Kentucky towns and some had been
attracted to the scene from far away
stntes. The bulk of the assembly
was composed, however, of the people
from Larue nnd adjoining counties.
Tho site of the birthplace of the
great American Is an out of the way
corner of the world, but while there
was contrast In the appearance of
the countrymen nnd tho city-bred
dignitaries, there was no marked!
difference in deportment. There was
a notable absence of negroes in the
crowd, but those present were
wedged In among the whites, showing
that none hnd been kept away
by race prejudice.
Among those who had been expected
to be present was Mrs.
Hardin Helm, the only surviving
sister of Mrs. Lincoln, 92 jiears
old, but she waB kept at her home
