The St. Louis Republic says the proba

' this year are stronger than they were in
; 1888, when the republican party polled
less than two per cent more of the total
vote than was polled for Gov. Palmer
j In 1888 the independent movement in the
west had not begun. Under Mr. Cleve

cessity of a general movement in the west
! for the protection of the rights of its aj

of the west to lead in national affairs
lie represents, too, a great reform, which
' will take the senate from the control of

intended to be.
ibe republican party in Illinois, as

"every other reform intended to release

r" ' Its politics are twenty-five years behind
the times. During the civil war it was a

everything to eastern plutocrats. They
bad the money; the government had the
overpowering need for it, and there was

has increased vastly in population; when

the west, which attempts to keep it under

clearly such a party cannot maintain it

Boston, Aug. 13. The Hob was in a
blaze of glory yesterday and vocal with
tha music of innumerable bands and the
cheers of thousands of people, while the
steady tramp of the Grand Army hosts
was heard from early morning to late in
the evening. The day was cloudy, and a
stiff breeze kept the miles of bunting with
which the city was decorated in a flutter,
and caused the flags to stream out from
the staffs and tug at the halliards. The
influx of people continued all morning up
to noon, and it was estimated that 100,000
strangers were landed in the city. One of
the first sounds that greeted the waking
city was the boom of caunon in the bay,
announcing the arrival of , the Dispatch
with Secretary Tracy, Vice President Mor
ton, and Gen. Sherniau on board, and half
an hour later another salute announced
her arrival in the harbor. The distin
guished gentlemen were escorted to the
Karly Iklorntng Incidents.
President Harrison received Governor
Brackett and a state delegation shortly
after breakfast and a few minutes there
after was seated in a carriage which took
him over the route of the procession to
view the decorations, which were elabor
ate and beautiful. While this part of the
programme was going on the veterans
were assembling at different points and
marching to their positions preparatory
to taking their places in the parade, which
was to be the event of the day. The
formation was on Commonwealth avenue,
the different departments forming on the
side streets. Everywhere through this
part of the city the scene was an animated
one. The varied uniforms of the tramp
ing vets, the tattered battle flas, the
gorgeously caparisoned bands, and the
aides dashing hither and thither on horse
back, went to make up a spirited pana
rama of military preparation.
The Sea of Spectators.
While these preparations were going on
the spectators were assembling by tens of
thousands. Windows and -balconies along
the line of march were occupied by ladies
and gentlemen, the bright costumes of the
former adding to the brilliance of the
decorations. Along the sidewalks the
people were gradually packed untill they
were almost impassable; at different
points great stands hail been erected, and
these rapidly tilled with sight-seers, while
a favored several thousand were occom
modated on grand standi) at Franklin and
Copley squares; the latter being the re
viewing stand where President Harrison
and other officials were given positions.
The Parade Begins to Move.
At 11:30 all was ready. Commander-in-Chief
Alger, with his staff of 600 mounted
men, escorted by the One Hundred and
Thirteenth Massachusetts cavalry, and
head by a corps of mounted police, rode to
the head of the Illinois department, the
band struck up "God Bless the Soldiers,1
and at the command of the leader the
greatest military street pageant ever wit
nessed In Boston began its onward march.
"Old Trcunip" Steals a March.
As early as 9 a. m. the space in the vi
vinity ot Copley square was densely
crowded, and the fortunate possessors of
tickets of admission to the grand stand at
that point were early in their seats. The
seats reserved for the presidential party
were to the left, and built on a curve, giv
Ing a fine view of the line of march. At
10 a. m. a carriage drove up, and a couple
of gentlemen quickly alighted and quickly
ascended the steps, taking seats in the
front row. The taller of the two was Gen.
Sherman, the pride of the volunteer sol
diers, who for the first time probably in
his life, upon an occasion similar to this.

Stand Scenes Along the Lines.
At 10:20 strains of "Hail to the Chief'
and rousing cheers announced the coming
of the president, and a few minutes later
a carriage drawn by four horses drove
hastily up, and Governor Brackett sprang
out, quickly followed by President Harri
son. The second carriage bore Vice Pres
ident Morton and Mayor Hart, and was
followed by carriages containing Secre
taries Noble, Proctor, Tracy, and Rusk;
Private Secretary Halford, Admiral Gher-

Cheers for Logan's Widow.
Scarcely had the applause which greeted
the presidential party subsided, when a
flutter of excitement, quickly broke into
hearty cheers as the familiar face of Mrs.
John A. Logan appeared above the sea of
upturned faces. Mrs. Logan was accom
panied by Mrs. Alger. These ladies were
followed by Mrs. McKee, Lillian Nordica
(the prima donna), and their hostess, Mrs.
A. L. Coolidge. Mrs. Noble, accompanied
by a friend, was also of the party.
At precisely 11 a great cheer.which went
up simultaneously from the crowd, an
nounced the arrival of Gen. Butler.
Honors to the Commander-in-Chief.
The appearance of Gen. Alger, who rode
a spirited bay, waa the signal for the aris
ing of Mr. Harrison, and cabinet. As
sach department came in front of the
stand colors were dipped, hats raised, and
in many instances rousing cheers were
given for the president. As the posts
went by carrying battle flags, and as their
tattered and torn folds caught the breezes,
very occupant rose and cheered lustily,
while the ladies of the party waved their
handkerchiefs. The parade as a whole
was favorably commented upon, and each
notable feature was very generously re

At 1:30 seven state divisions had passed.
and it was evident that the parade would
be much longer than bad been anticipated.
Department Commander John D. Ander
son, of Maine, received a good deal of ap
plause. The clouds protected the march
ing veterans from the sun without wet

Monday night made the streets as hard as
a floor. Post 7o, of Castine, Ma. carried
pine trees and, the three-cornered hats ol
the Continental band of Bath, Me., were
a feature of that division. A horse cap

elicited much applause from the crowds
in Arlington street. Nearly every man in
this division wore a silver clam shelL
Prescott post 1, of Providence, li. L. was

The Scene at Franklin Square,
Viewed from Franklin sauare the Grand
Army parade was a magnificent snectacle
and was witnessed by fully 10,000 people.
xue iwo grana stanas on both sides of the
square were completely filled long before
the time assigned for the parade to ap
pear. The grand arch at the head of the
square, profusely decorated, was the cen
ter or attraction, especially to the eyes of
the veterans, bearing as it did a finely ex
ecuted representation of the "attle of'Gelu'
tysburg. As the parade ap p ared
resounded with cheer upon cheer by the

Many prominent people passed the

Alger Kevlews His Comrades Cheers for
"Our Next President."
At Adams square a reviewing stand had
been erected for Gen. Alger and staff, and
other Grand Army ', notables. This was
the end of the line of march, and as the
different bodies passed they t ither broke
ranks or marched to headquarters. At
1:40 p. m. a squad of mounted police, im
mediately followed by Conimander-in
Chief Alger and staff, made t leir appear
ance in Adams square. The c ommander-in-chief
and staff were received on the

His Start In I.lfe.
After a hearty diuner he went to a the
ttre, and when he returned to bis rooms
in the Palace hotel he fell into a chair and
lied in an hour. Liming was a native of
Hamburg, aud came here in 1819 with a
imall capital in ready cash and became a
money leuder iu a small way. When the
Kldorado gambling saloon and other re
torts of like character were in full blast
irouud the old plaza, Luning laid the
foundation of a great fortune by advanc
ing money to unfortunate gamblers at a
ligh rate of iuterest, and taking as secur

He gradually enlarged his field and be

have ready money to make payments to
eastern Arms every "steamer day," when
the regular steamer left for Panama, and
Luning became chief lender on such occa-
uons, and exacted from 6 to 13 per cent.
per month for the use of his coin. His
favorite investment was mortgages on
good real estate, and by foreclosures he
became possessed of several millions of

The Surprise Didn't Material lie.
Luning never failed to foreclose a mort
gage wnen it ieu uue, and be never
showed mercy to a poor creditor. Hence
he was universally disliked, and it is
probable none mourns his death. He inti
mated two weeks ago to a friend that his
will would be a aurpriseto the public, but
it isn't, for he left not a single cent of his
millions to charity, or for any public pur
pose. All was bequeathed to two sons
and three daughters. He lived for years
at the Palace hotel, and was known to
never carry a cent of money unless for a
pectne purpose. If he was obliged to
lunch outside the hotel, he only took what
mange would suffice for his simple needs.
Ills Idea ol Had Lurk.
A good story is told of Luning's desire
to make bis money earn something. One
lay a personal friend, met him at a restau
rant at lunch. The millionare was lean

had a drawn expression. His friend said

bank and couldn't loan it at anything

Treatment of a Poor Widow.
Luning used to stop at the fruit stand
or a widow, near one of his buildings.
and as he in. 1e no mention of her tres
pass she freq -ntly offered him samples
or her choicest fruit, which the million
aire never refused to accept. He had
learned wher, the widow first took up her
position on the corner that she owned a

the city, and after she had been there so
long that she had beiome a fixture and

derly'a Organ Gives Webb a' Blast
Serious Trouble at Cloo.net, Minn.
New York, Aug. ia "The strike is a
back number," say the officials of the New
York Central. "The strike is still on, and
we will play a trump card in the game in
a short time," say the Knights of Labor.
That is the situation as far as talk is con
cerned. The facts, however, seemed to
bear out the railway officials yesterday.
At the Grand Central station there was
no sign of a strike. Trains were leaving
aud arriving on schedule time, and there
seemed nothing the matter with the Cen
tral. Affairs at St. John's Park were re
suming their natural condition. Freight
trains with empty cars left for the West
Thirty-third street yards to relieve the
pressure of freight at that point. The
signs, "No freight received until further
notice " were still displayed, but the of
ficials said that all freight will be received
to-day. The police were still on guard
the depot. At the other freight
the blockade was rapidly being
Klsewhere on the Road.
At 1 p. m. reports from along the New
New York Central railroad indicated that
the strike was practically at an end. Pas
lenger trains were running on time be
tween here and Albany, and the delay
west of there was unimportant. Train
Dispatcher Luftus and Yardmaster Nit
thell had a sufficient force of men to run
ut all the cars in the y ards here in a
short time, but there was not sufficient
accommodation for all the cars yet at
their destinations up the road. A large
force of men was at work in the Thir
teenth street yard and several trains were
run between there and the Sixty-fifth
street yard during the day.
THE KNIGHTS IN COUNCIL.
Master Workman Lee Outlines the Situ
ation front Ilia Point of View.
A meetiug of the Knights of Labor from
all the local assemblies, and many in the
vicinity, waa held'yesterday. The meet
ing was held with closed doors Thomas
Caffney presided, and over GOO knights
were present. Master Workman Lee out
lined the present situation of the strike,
and declared that the knighta would win.
He added: "If the situation requires it I
will see that other bodies of the kuights
come out Many others on the Central
road will soon follow our example."
Waiting tor Powderly'a Indorsement.
"The general executive board," he said,
"alone has the power to order out at one
time the men on the roads throughout the
country and any apparent delay in forcing
a conclusion is because we are waiting
indorsement by that body." Lee stated
that no conference had been had with
A vote of confidence was then given
Lee and the meeting decided to leave the
entire control of affairs iu the hands of
their executive officers. A circular from
the executive district board 24)1, of which
Lee Is the master workman, addressed to
"Our fellow-workmen iu the railway
service," and which asks for their assist
ance and co operation in the struggle now
pending, was read.
POWDERLY'S PAPER'S REMARKS.
Webb Charged with Making Wr on the
Knights of Labor.
IIULAPKLI-Ml A. AUg. I.i. 1 Ills WOCSl'S
Journal of the Knights of Labor contains
an editorial on the New York Central
strike, accusing Vic I'residt-nt Webb of
having systematically provoked the strike
by his overbearing, haughty and arbi
trary treatment of employes. The editor
ial believes Webb's find, effort is to de
stroy the Knights of Ilxir as an organi
sation, after which he will direct bis at
tention to the engineers' and firemen's
brotherhoods. The Immediate cause of
the strike was evidently carefully planned,
and discharge of men who were in any
way prominent in the ranks of the
Knights of Ijabor, regardless of their
competency or faithfulness to their du
ties as employes, followed. Vice Presi
dent Webb iuvariably refused a bearing
to committees of the employes which
called upon bim, and left no other re
source but to strike.
A Bid for Outside Help.
The Journal says that Mr. Webb will
have no regard for life or limbs of the
traveling public, and in carrying out his
own plans will not hesitate to place trains
and switches in the hands of incompetent
men. 'X be editorial concludes as follows:
"That the cause of the men is just we
know, but we also know that the fact of
ita justice does not insure its success;
That true wisdom would counsel other
organized bodies employed on the road
to make common cause with the men en
gaged in the struugle for the right to or
ganize is true, but unfortunately this
true wisdom has been so often lacking in
the past that we cannot, with any cer
tainty, count upon its presence now."
TURBULENCE AT CLOQUET, MINN.
Militia Ordered to the Seene of Trouble
St. Paul, Minn., Aug. 13. Dispatches
received last evening from Cloquet show
that a strike of the 150 or 300 mill hands at
that place is becoming more serious evety
hour, and it is thought that it will be im
possible to avoid bloodshed. The' sheriff,
unablo to cope with the mob of strikers,
swore in all of the deputies that he could
get hold of. Iile yesterday afternoon the
sheriff telegraphed Governor Merrinm to
the effect that with the few men he was able
to secure he was entirely unable to do any
thing with the strikers, and called for the
aid of state troops.
Troops Arrive from Ttnluth.
In tlie absence of the governor and
Adjt. Gen. Mullen, Col. Bohlcter, com
