A SOLDIER'S FUNERAL.
Accorded the Remains of Gen
Walter Q. Gresham.
The ftody Taken to Chicago. Kicorted by
the retfiftent and Cabinet and
m Large N'amlter at Mourn
Washington. May 30. The remains
f Walter Quinton Gresham received
the funeral honors accorded a soldier.
Except John A. Logan, of Illinois,
no rnan.'uot of the regular army, has
ever before been honored by the or
dering out of the United States troops
by the president to escort his remains.
A bright sun shed its raj-s ovi-r the
military pageant which accompanied
the funeral procession, and no more
Imposing spectacle has been witnessed
since the last presidential inaugura
tion, though the sadness of the occa
sion naturally dimmed its luster and
the crowds were mute and reverent.
At 9:30 a. m. the body, which was
Jain in state Tuesday evening in the
parlor in the apartments at the Arhng
ton annex which the secretary had oc
cupied during life, was removed from
that resting' plaie to the great East
room of the White House. It was pre
ceded by such a tribute of flow
ers as even Washington, the city
of flowers, has seldom witnessed
The arrangements awaited the
arrival of the president and his cabi
net, who came with military prompti
tude. The president and acting Sec-
retary of State Uhl entered the first
carriage to follow the remains. Then
came Secretary Carlisle, who unex
pectedly returned to Washington, in
stead of joining the funeral train en
route, as was intended, and Secretary
Lamont. Next Attorney-General Ol-
ney and I'ostmaster-General Wilson
and the Secretaries Herbert, Smith and
The preliminary services took place
in the Last room of the White House
which has witnessed some memorable
obsequies, the last being those of Pres
ident Harrison's wife, but which has
never liefore been the scene of funeral
services over a cabinet officer.
There was, further, this distinction
in the day's sad ceremonies, that the
draperies and other accessories were
entirely military in character.
The United States troops, headed by
the Marine band, formed on Seven
teenth street, extending their line to
the west gate of the White House. Tl
artillery were parked along the out
skirts of Lafayette square which sep
arates the Arlington from the White
House and their guns and caissons
stretched the whole length of the south
front of the treasury.
The military forces consisted of four
troops of the Sixth cavalry from Fort
Meyer. Va., five companies of artillery
from the Washington barracks and the
Marine corps under Col. Hey wood.
The flag which Gen. Gresham loved
so well, for which he fought so brave
ly, and in whose defense he was so
grieviously wounded, was the chief
emblem of mourning round his funeral
liishop Hurst, of the Methodist Epis
copal church, conducted the services.
He was a warm personal friend of the
dead secretary, who himself was
brought up in the Methodist faith, his
father and mother belonging to that
The decorations of the East room for
the funeral services there were most
elaborate and of exceeding beauty
and imprcssiveness. To carry out the
intention to make the occasion purely
military, the American flag was pre
dominant in the display. Wherever
the eye wanders the Stars and Stripes
were seen. Each of the four great sa
loon mirrors were half hidden by a
large flag and every window curtained
by hangings composed of the National
standard. 20 feet long.
These formed the background for an
effective display of growing plants ami
cut flowers. Great spreading palms
branched out from every window and
alcove, ami were surrounded by potted
oleanders and other greenery. White
and gold flower-pots and innumerable
varieties of evergreen were banked on
the mantels and beneath them, and
cut flowers were interspersed here and
there, while wreaths of smilax en
twined mirrors and windows and door
ways. The effectiveness of the ar
rangement was greatly enhanced by
theglow of electric lights, rendered soft
through hemispheres of thick glass of
a pinkish hue.
The oflicial and clerical force of the
state department assembled at the de
partment at 9:30 o'clock and proceeded
to the White House in a body. Four
of this numlier, Messrs. Renick, the
chief clerk; Chilton, Haywood and II.
T. Smith, seated the members of the
diplomatic corps, while Messrs. Kiddle
and Keller, of the department, re
ceived the diplomats as they arrived
at the entrance to the grounds.
Sir Julian Pauncefote, the British
ambassador, as dean of the diplomatic
corps, convened a meeting of the mem
bers of the diplomatic corps at his am
bassy Tuesday evening, and they, after
adopting suitable resolutions of sym
pathy on the occasion of the grievous
loss "which the government of the
United States has sustained, deter

Similar action was also had by the
Justices of the supreme court.
The Chinese minister, Mr1. Yang Yu,
in all the splendor of the uniform of a
noble of the Chinese Order of the
Eight Banners, was a conspicuous fig
ure, and he, with the many members
of his accompanying suite, also attired
in oriental costume, attracted much
attention. Mr. Pak Yung Ku, the
Corean charge, was also conspicuous
by reason of his peculiar costume.

capital reached its destination shortly
after 5 o'clock, and with civic and mil

The gathering at the cemetery was
made up of all ranks of men. There
were detachments of the regular army
and the state militia, representatives
of the state legislature, the city coun
cil, the county board, the bar associa
tion and all the clubs in the city, to
gether with thousands of citizens
from all the walks of life. From
Washington came the president of the
United States and his cabinet, the
members of the supreme court, sena
tors and congressmen, and oflicers of
But the most impressive feature oi
the gathering was the presence ol
thousands of veterans, both federal
and confederate. The former had
passed the forenoon in decorating the
graves of their comrades, while the
latter had gathered to unveil a monu
ment in memory of the confederate
prisoners who died at Camp Douglas
and were buried in Oak woods ceme
tery during the war. So it came about
that in the same burying ground
where the dead of the "Lost Cause"
were honored in the forenoon a dis
tinguished federal general was laid to
rest in the afternoon, mourned by
those whom he had so gallantly fought
against thirty years ago.
The Fifteenth infantry was ordered
into the city from Fort Sheridan, ac
companied by the Seventh cavalry and
a light battery, under command of
(apt. Capron. These troops were
quickly transferred to the Sixty-third-street
station of the Illinois Cen
tral railroad, where the most of the
organizations had preceded them.
Upon the arrival of the funeral train
at Woodlawn, or Sixty-third-street
station, the troops, which were drawn
up in parade formation, presented
arms, and the drums gave forth the
long roll, followed by a bugle salute.
The body was taken from the train
by eight sergeants of the regular army
and placed in a hearse drawn by six
black horses. The procession was then
formed as follows:

The procession, which formed o:
Sixty-third street, moved west to
Greenwood avenue and then south to
the cemetery, on Sixty-seventh street.
As the procession turned west on
Greenwood avenue the light battery
fired a salute of thirteen guns, the
numlier Gresham's army rank entitled
him to, and also due him as a membei
of the cabinet.
Arriving at the entrance to the cem
etery, the funeral cortege was met by
the cavalry detachment, which was
drawn up at the left of the entrance.
The troopers presented sabers and the
trumpeters sounded a salute.
As the procession passed into the
grounds it was met by a great throng
of people, some of whom had been at
tending the dedication of tlie confed
erate monument, while othere were
decorating the graves of federal sol
diers, and still others had come ex
pressly to witness the funeral services
over the dead secretary of state.
Slowly t he long line moved through
the densely-packed masses of people
until the cemetery chapel was reached.
Then the casket was taken from the
earse, and the distinguished party
who had accompanied it from Wash

The building is a small one, and held
only a tithe of those who wished to

More far-reaching than any other
change during the past week, if really

rise in prices of wheat and cotton.

have sutfered more than at first ap

while the daily average for May is 2G.9
per cent, larger than last year, but 7.10
per cent, less than in 1S9:;.
Stock speculation has shrunk to less
than half its volume three weeks ago,
and is almost wholly confined to pro

Mixnk atoms, Minn., June 2. A ter
rible tragedy occurred at 1229 Nicollet
avenue. Mrs. Martha M. Elias and
daughter lives there over Hart's drug
store. About 4 a. m. people in the vi
cinity heard a pistol shot and in a few
minutes later another. Soon after
ward investigation showed that a
double murder had been com
mitted. The daughter was found dead
in bed. There had been no struggle
anil she lay as if asleep, but
when raised up the back of her head
was found to le nearly shot away.
The body of the old lady was found
lying across the lied outside tiie cover..
Her face and head had been frightful
ly mangled with a shot from a 44- cali
ber Colt's revolver fired into the head
between the eyes. The mother was at
first supposed to have been insane and
to have killed her daughter and then
shot herself. But the coroner thought
the deed might have been done by con
sent of both. They lived alone and were
implored in a laundry.
Later developments, however, indi
cate that instead of "murder and sui

ted by the son and brother of the dead
people. The young man was released
from the insane asylum the first of
May. and was seen about the premises
yesterday. In the room was found a

The Cows of Delhi.
The crowded streets of Indian citie
present manifold attractions, but the
study of native life and manners in
Delhi is frequently interrupted by the
gray herds of Brahmini cows, which
roam about at their will, with the evi
dent conviction invariably entertained
by these pampered animals that their
own importance far exceeds that of
the community which they inconveni
ence by their presence. An overturned
stall witnesses to the self-assertion of
the sacred kine, and as our carriage
disperses a blockade of sleek backs and
interlacing horns, an indignant mem
ber of the.. scattered conclave wreaks
vengeance on the battered chariot by
pushing it along with these natural
weapons to the end of the street. The
"raison d'etre" of the assembled cows
is found in the presence of a great
Hindoo temple.where a glimpseof glit
tering images in fretted shrines is un
willingly granted to the unbelievers,
whose feet are forbidden to tread the
sacred courts of the Brahmin sanctua
