Hamilton, Ont., April .'!0. Fuller details
of Sunday's accident describe it as the most
rickening spectacle ever witnessed in any
luch disaster. The cause of tbe accident is
aid now to be duo to slippery tracks, a steep
grade and a curv which the engine jumped
instead of rounding. The express train came
down tbe grade at a high rat of speed, and
with slippery rails that made it difficult to
rontrol tbe momontum of the heavy load.
Tho train wheeled the first curve in safety,
passed the switch on tbe embankment, but its
momentum was too great to enable it to
round the second curve. It jumned tbe track
and bolted straight into the water tank at
the apex of the Y. The engine left the rails
105 feet from the tank, rushed across the in
tervening space like a flush, and struck the
tauk with such force as to stave it into
piece. In an instant the 91,000 gallons of
water rushed down the bank to the marsh
beneath. Tbe wreck of the lirst four cars

Of the scene that followed no correct ac
count can be obtained from tbe survivors.
Amid tbe escaping steam and tbe blinding
rain the screams of the injured arose from
the awful mound of debris. The survivors
worked like heroes, and in a short time bad
removed about a dozen wounded from the
wreck. Tben the flames leaped out, driving
back tbe already half-stifled rescuers. The
heat drove tbem off, but above the noise of
escaping steam could be heard frenzied
voices shrieking in the ruins. A woman's
voice rose high above the rest for a few mo
ments, screaming with pain and fear, and
tben it was stilled. Tbe Are department of
the city was sent for and responded. About
2 o'clock in the afternoon the flames had been
so far extinguished as to permit search being
made for bodies.
Sickening Work In the Wreck.
When tbe heap of black ashes, filled with
cushion springs and seat irons, was turned
over, body after body was found blackened
and charred out of all semblance of human
ity. Seventeen in all were picked out during
tbe afternoon, and the workers turned away
sick and horrified. It was a most frightful
holocaust. One of tbe through passengers,
who did not give his name, related that
when the accident happened he crawled out
and ran forward to assist those who were
imprisoned in the wreck. Tbe first cry he
heard waa that of a woman. Bending in
over the debris he saw a young girl with one
leg out of a car window. She told him she
was caught by the other and he made efforts
to release her. The flames spread rapidly
towards where she was caught and forced
him back, and tbe moans of tbe victim left

New York, April .SO. It was gorgeous
sight that greeted the president and other
guests when, after tbe conclusion of the card
receptiou yesterday at the Equitable build
ing, they were escorted to the breakfast
room of the lawyers' club. The handsome
apartment was a bower of beauty, made so
by a profusion of flowers, plants and electric
lights. The party that sat down included
men eminent in politics, law and many other
dartiuents of life, and the good things
were abundant and choice. At the conclusion
of the feast the toast whs "The President,"

WELCOMED BY SCHOOL GIRLS.
A Heautiful Scene at the City Ball Aa
AddreiM and i'uhlic Reception.
rrobalily tbe prettiest femure of thtt after-
noou proceedings was the weloonie of Presi
dent Harrison by the school children on tbe
steps of the city hall. This was preliminary
to tbe puMic reception, and the president
was, at about 4 p. ni., escorted from the
Equitable building by tho Seventh and
Twenty-second regiments, the streets along
the line of march being packed by a mass of
humauity that must have been seen to have
leeu appreciated. As the procession marched
along the enthusiasm was continuous; flags
wore waved, handkerchiefs fluttered, while
President Harrison from time to time lifted
his hat in acknowledgement of this hearty
"Strew Flowers, Bright Flowers."
Arriving at the city hall the scene was a
charming one. Here, ranged along the foot
of the stein, were 200 young girls from
the grammar schools arrayed in white
with the other two national colors repre
sented in their raiment by sashes. At the
entrance to the building on top of the steps
were thirteen girls from the normal school
similarly costumed As the president de
scended from his carriage and escorted by
tbe mavor, governor and other officials ad
vanced to the steps, the J00 girls strewed his
pathway with flowers, anil he literally
walked on roses as he ascended to tbe en
trance. Miss Abrahams' Address.
Arriving here Miss Anna Abrahams
stepped from tbe ranks of the thirteen nor
mal school pupils and with charming diffi
dence, but in full, firm voice read an address
of welcome. Miss Abrahams is a beautiful
girl of 10. and as soon as the roar of cheers
that announced the president's arrival had
ceased she said :
Mn. PnF.sinENT: Thmug'i us, tueir repre
sentatives. ID .0U pupils of tbe common
schools of the citv of New York, l.ttVI students
of the Normal coMesre. an' l.nw students of
the College of the City of New York extend to
rou their cordial welcome.
It Is, we think, appropriate that the (treat
common school system, which is, to a large
extent, the outgrowth of ashinjton's re
peated recommendations to the newly born
republic, should be represented In the public
celebration of his inauRurat.on as first presi
dent of tbe United States. Washington was
too far-seeing as a statesman not to pereeive
that true liberty must rest on the basis of pop
Referring to Washington's recommenda
tion that a national university lie endowed
by the national government, and bis proph
ccy that "we are on the eve of a very en
lightened era," tbe fair speaker proceeded:
TUlspreat nation has followed Washington's
adviro: it has established common et-hools; It
has founded college and universities, and to
this above all it owes its progress In art and
scionce, and its success In peace and war.
Long ago Aristotle taught that no state is se
cure, whose children ere not reared in perfect
sympathy with her institutions.
Admirably, then, has this commonwealth
fulfilled her doty, for to-day the highe-t edu
cation is within the reach nf the bnmblestof
our little ones for which the men of a former
age bad to wtrug.le all their lives.
After a few words of review of the tre
mendous progress the country has made in
the last 10) years Miss Abrahams concluded
Upon you. honored s'r. has been conferred
tho bigiiest otllce which this nation of intelli
gent, self-governing freemen has in its gift.
and tt is as president nf the United States
tbut you have come to help us to worthily
commemorate this great centmul.il. Upon
such worthy shoulders has the mantle of
Americu's tlrst and noblest son fallen that we
can repeat to you to-day the words our Tren
ton sisters addressed to him a century ago:
"Virgins fair and matrons grave.
Those thy conquering arms did save.
Build for thee triumphal bowers.
Strew, ye fair, his way with flowers.
Strew your hero's way with flowers."
At tho conclusion of Miss Abrahams'
speech Miss Fannie B. Cole, of Normal col
lege, presented tbe president with a large
boquet of beautiful roses, and an engrossed
copy of the adJress bound tn seal. Another
voting lady pinned a rose to tho lnpul of tbe
The Pnblie Reception.
The presidential party then proceeded to
tbe gaily decorated governor s room, where
a public reception was held. Tbe president,
tbe vice president, the governor of New
York and the mayor of New York city stood
beneath a canopy of flags. Col. William P.
Walton-and a guard of Grand Array com
manders formed a line at either side of the
When the doors were opened to tbe public
the first to enter was an old gray-beaded
veteran who stepped up to the president and
shook ham'.s with him. An old couple fol
lowed, and they also shook tbe president's
Hand, but from that time to the end of tbe
reception tho president merely bowed to
those who imssed in line, making exception
only to a wee tot, dressed in white, to whom
he gave bis rose. At 5 o'clock the reception
closed, and it was then' estimated that 6,000
people had passed in line before the presi
dent BEAUTY AND RADIANCE.
A Resplendent Scene at the. Groat Cen
The Metropolitan opera house was thrown
open at 8 o'clock for tbe centennial ball
Long before that hour, however, Broadway
and Seventh avenue in the vicinity of the
opera house were literally packed with cu
rious spectators, and the police had tbe great
est difficulty in keeping passage-ways open
for the carriages of those guests, who, bent
upon avoiding the crush that came later, en
deavored to be among the first to arrive.
Mayor Grant, aa host, and chairman of
tbe committee ou the centennial celebration,
arrived a little nfter 10 o'clock, and a little
after 10:30 President Harrison arrived, ac

Tbe god of day had barely illuminated the
east witL rosy radiance ere tbe note of tbe
bugle, tbe rattle of the snare drum, the shrill
note of t ie fife, and tbe inspiriting concord
of sound-i from the military baud, mingled
with the tramp, tramp of tho thousands of
troops who were getting into their places for
the miliary parade. To-dny New York

aen sold ory ever witnessed in the city.

received at the Vesey street entrance by a
committee of Trinity cbnrch vestry and
escorted into the church and to the Washing
ton pew. Tbe building at this time was full
of the distinguished of the land governors,
senators, representatives and other public
men, besides representatives of the law, the
bench and other learned professions. Fair
woman added tbe grace of her presence, and
it is doubtful if more brains and beauty were
ever gotten together in the same space. The
services were conducted by tbe Kt Rev.
Henry C. Potter, bishop, of Now York,
in imitation of the service 100 years ago, at
which time the bishop of New York, Rfc
Rev. Samuel Provoost, was the conductor.
The services consisted of a processional

It is but vain reiteration to state that every
street in the city through which it was
known that the president would pass at any
time was wedged with people. The throngs
were massed so close tbat movement was
difficult, but in spite of the discomfort tbe
day bad too many great memories for people
to he quiet. The roars of cheering must have
been heard at Sandy Hook, some people de
clared. Through this great multitude tbe

At this point tbe view from the steps of
tbe bin id uig was one to see once in a life
time, A seaof faces was spread out before
the observer, and as the president ascended
to his seat the uproar was tremendous.
At 10 o'clock Rev. Dr. R. a Storrs ad
vanced to tbe front and opened tbe proceed
ings with an eloquent invocation, while tbe
great audience stood with uncovered and
bowed beads. A poem by John G. it hittier
was next read and tben Chauncey M. Depew
arose to deliver the oration of the occasion.

lie benn with a tribute tn the alertness
shown bv the coionists in discovering and re
sisting Any peril to tbeir liberties; showed
how t he eon t : nen ta i congross part lally grasped
and completely expressed tbe central Idea of
the American rei-ubli -, and recited the doubts
and debat rs of the year 1 receding the sublime
declaration of independence made in tne name
aurt by tlm authority of the good peop e of tue
colonies. After paying a tribute to Hancock,
L'ar o I. Harrison and others, he discussed the
central idea f tue declaration of independ
ence viz, the sovereignty of the peop e nd
rietined the position of Thomas Jefferson
among the statesmen of the period. He then
discussed the necessity for a permanent
union and the sovereign powers which
it was obvious must be placed in the
hands of a central congress. This section of
the theme, it can readily be perceived, would
be a temptation to any orator, and Mr. De
pew dealt with it clearly, admirably, elo
quently, drawing a marked contrast between
those congresses built upon popular sover
eignty, institutions broad enough to embrace
a continent ami elastic enough to fit all con
ditions of race and traditions, and other
great councils. Naturally, in discussing the
statesmen, the orator approached aahington
and the great men about bim; payed further
tribute to the stutesmen of the period; showed
that tbe success of the time was due to the
confidence in Washington and the genius of
Alexander Hamilton, concerning the latter of
whom he said: "In no couutry, in no age. has
there apieured a more precocious or amazing
Intelligence than Hamilton."
Then came th- story of Washington's elec
tion and of bis trip to the capital in a memora

York, his gr. etiug by the first congres of the

oration was devoted to a recognition of thu
extraordinary development of the years that
nave pa t-ed w- th some start ing contrasts In
tne way of ligures a running review of the
royal families which, reigning then, have dis
appeared, and a peroration of exceeding
beauty In thought and phrase.
Tbe oration ended in a perfect whirlwind
of applause. As the last words of the splendid
peroration fsll from the speaker's lips
dead silence ensued. Entranced by the
match less oratory men stood for a moment
spell-bound. Then a shout arose that made
the very earth tremble; beginning in front
where tbe speaker's words could lie heard it
was taken up by those in the rear and swelled
from point to point until all the streets from
which even a sight of tbe building could be
had were ringing with the tremendous vol
ume of sound. It waxed and waned and
waxed again, and it was some momenta be
fore silence was restored.
The President Speaks.
President Harrison then came to tbe front
and delivered a brief but eloquent and ap
propriate address in which he referred to tbe
significance of the occasion, the greatness of
tbe nation which had inaugurated its first
president 100 years ago to-day, and its hopes
and aspirations for tbe future.
Tbe address was cheered to the echo and
then the figure of Archbishop Corrigan
claimed attention as be stood waiting to give
the closing benediction. Again a hush fell
on tbe multitude, the solemn words were ut
tered and the exercises were over.
The president and his party, consisting of
cabinet and supreme court members, were
immediately taken to carriages and driven to
the reviewing stand on Madison square,
while the people sought places from which
they could observe the military march.

In the. meantime tbe bodies of military

getting into their places. The preliminary

the column bad moved from tbe

The route lay up Broadway to Waverly
