IN A PANIC.

laKlke Klertloaa la llltnaln.
There is much hurrying and ukurrying
in different portion of the state among
republicans regarding the cl -ctiona this
fall. "Long" Jones, chalrm.n. U strid
ing over the country and wearing a face
long enough to eat oH out of a churn.
Cannon, in the Fifteenth district, is in a
dreadfully bad way and there is a very
great probability that he will be defeated
mouth and all. In the Eighteenth dis
trict things are as bad as can be for the
republican candidate. Oood public
speakers are being employed to scamper
over the country and attend to the doubt
ful and despjrtte dii'ricts. Andrew
Aa'uton. in the Sixth district, is run
ning Mr. Hitt. the republican, so bard.
that terrifying speakers are wanted and
wanted badly. Boss Reed will go there
and give what hope and encouragement
he can . Reed will also go to Cannon's
district to revive the drooping spirits, but
It looks like a hopeless cafe, as Col.
Rusry, the democratic candidate there, is
away ahead. The Chicago Herald says:
"The same condition of affair exists
in Mr. Gent's district, where Ben Cable Is
proving himself to be an accomplished
. -.'roirrr.' Oest is worse off than either
Cannon or Hitt, and Mr. Rved's speech,
which Mr. Jones has cnntfacled for, will
not save him.
Still "Billy" will make a frantic effort
tonight at Molioe, and altogether it is
" like the boy catching the woodchuck,
something's got to be done and that soon.
In a little while all thecentml and south
era portions of the state will be up in
arms, and democracy has everything to
' be thankful for. Oglesby is making poor
teadway among the farmers singing his
bigb taxation songs, and yet "Untie
Dick" was one time listened to with some
attention, and his words looked upon as
gospel truth. His glory has departed.
The trip of Governor Flfer in southern
Illinois fell flat, stale and unprofitable.
In St. Clair county the republicans have
been unable to secure a candidate for
state senator, and, of course, a democrat
will be elected there as also in the Forty
In fine, the situation in this stale at
present, as far as Wie republicans are
concerned, looks much like a sinking
ship with the rats all scampering away
for some kind of safety.
Instead of sending to Washington and
getting a copy of the letter said it have
been written by the late Mr. Cable relat
;og to the closing of the bridge, why not
se the letter written by Captain Robin
fi in which Mr. Gest was shown to be
bi king against the people's interests and
fsvorof the Ferry company? Why
od the main issue and to detract at-
entiofl from it threaten to send to Wash
ingtnn for a copy of Mr. Cable's letter to
be published in the Union? It mat
ters little what he may have had to do
with It He was not the representati ve in
congress of this district, and what tbe
people want to know now is, why did
Kir. Gest oppose their Interests In favor
of a particular individual? Was he in
congress to look after the interests of
Captain Robinson and tbe ferry company
.or the Interests of tbe people generally?
A million letters published as regards
what somebody else might have done or
said has no bearing on tbe question. Mr.
Gest is seeking re-election on his record.
Let bis record be known. Ill record,
mind, not tbe record of somebody else.
Mr Gest is holdioghimself out, through
the Union, as willing to get employment
for any young man who wishes to go o
Washington as a page In congress. From
past experience it must be admitted that
the gentleman is eminently qualified for
. the work. It requires no forensic ability
but more particularly falls in line with
tbe duties required of respectable old la
dies who periodically meet together and
sip the product of China. Yes, Mr. Gest
It Is said that Congressman Gest went
off In a rage when he was informed that
the secretary of wsr hail told Congress
man bear, of Iowa, and Mr. Fred LI ass,
of this city, that he would issue an order
rescinding rule 5. lie undoubtedly felt
at tbe time thst he would be reprimanded
by the Ferry company.
The Union says when Gest is spoken
about it is like monkeying with a buzz
saw. Icwbatwa. On account of dan
ger' or on account of size? A buzz saw Is
a harmless looking thing, but is not safe
to trust I thank thee, Jew, for that
word, as the late lamented Mr. Shylock
once heard said.
Had Congressman Gest any motive in
"reiterating time and again that it was
impossible to have the bridge opened to
general traffic? To a disinterested person
it looks as though he bad.

President Harrison God-speed. Tbe presi

said: "The people of this country are
loyal, laving, dutiful citizens, ready to
support every faithful officer in tbe dis
charge of his duty ami to applaud every
honerft effort for good- It is a source of
great streogth to kuow this, and this
morning, not lest from thia bright sun

these kindly faces, I draw an inxpiratioa
to do what I can to promote Ihe good of
the people of the United States." Ap
plause. When he bad concluded El
sie Leslie Lyde, the child actress of "Lit
tie Lord Fauntleroy" fame, presented the
president a benutiful bouquet on behalf
of the Grand Army of the Republic posts
and citizens of Peoria. Tbe president ex
pressed bis thauks by kissing the little
lady, and amid the cheers of the crowd
the train pulled out for this city.
An Incident of the Trip.
A delegation from the city met the
party at Peoria, aud the engineer of the
locomotive, Frtiuk Hilton, was a member
of the president's briga le. As the train
drew near Uiilesburg the president
went forward with Secretary Tracy
and greeted Hilton as no old friend,
and upon his invitation the two
distinguished traveler took charge
of the whistle and boll, respective
ly, and performed their duties so well aud
so vigorously that the citizens of Knox
county would have thought several trains
were speeding through their miil-it and
that every crossing was obstructed by ob
stinate herds of live stock.
The Occasion of the Vi.it.
Tbe Galesburg event was the principal
one of the presidential tour. It was the
occasion of the reunion of the First
brigade. Third division, Twentieth Army
corps, the former command of (len. Har
rison. It was a gathering not only of
the old veterans who were formerly asso
ciated wilh the president, but of Grand
Army men from all sections of tho w ni.
Excursions from nil of the principal
eitiea within a radius of 300 miles added
to the nssetnlilnge, and it was estimated
that the audieuce. which greeted Presi
dent Harrisou here was not less than
A GALA DAY AT GALESBURG.
Hrllllant Pecorattous, (treat Crowd and
Galesburg was decorated from center to
circumference. The court houe was bril
liant with the national colors; from every
window ttie ensign was flying, and red
white ami blue were festooned all over
the building. The stores, public build
ings, and private residences were simi
larly decked, while the reviewing
stand was a thing of a b'aucy, its most
lovely feature being a material Goddess of
Liberty erect on each of the arch pillars in
the person of a charming young girl. The
arch itself bore the legehd Ve Welcome
Our President." Afrer arrival here the par
ty was escorted to the hotel by the mayor
and council and a large body of veterans,
while cheers resounded on all sides. At
the hotel a reception was held for an hour,
and the president was greeted by citizens
from all parts of the state and west.
Parade of Veteran, and Children.
The next thing on the programme was
the parade. The president was driven to
the reviewers' stand, and watched with
evident interest and emotion the passage
before him of the tneu with whom he had
stood shoulder to shoulder in battle. Tbe
line was nisile tip of the veterans of the
Twentieth army corps, and other soldiers',
more than 'J.00O school children, uud
thousands of citizens, the tramp of feet
being measured by the music of many
bands playing patriotic airs. The scene
was brilliant and inspiriting, and as tbe
different companies went by the enthu
siasm found vent in cheers for the chief
magistrate of the nation. On tbe stand
with him were a number of distinguished
men, among them Adjt. Gen. Vance, of
Illinois who appeared a-, the personal repre
sentative of Gov. Fifer, unable to leave bis
official duties; Secretary of State Pierson;
Hon. John S. Runnels, of Chicago; Con
gressman Post; Congressman Henderson;
Hon. George V. Prince; Gen. Arthur A.
Smith; Gen. Miles, United States army;
Gen. Dustin, department commander
Grand Army of the Republic of Illinois;
Col. Jefferson Kinney, and Senator Ha
meL tVelcomed to 4,ale.hurK.
The last man having tramped by, the
last cheer of the marching host being
given, the presidential party proceeded to
tbe speaking stand at the court house,
when Mayor Steveus delivered the wel
coming address. In the name of the city
and of the First brigade, as well as all
tbe old soldiers gathered, he welcomed
tbe president aud his secretary of the na
vy. To you. President Harrisou, the
College City brings its warmest greeting;
to you it is indebted for all these honors,
and it feels keenly the high distinction
you confer. Our brave soldiers who came
back to us from the bloody but glorious
field are here to salute a commander who
was always a comrade, who believed in
discipline anil remembered his men Ap
plause from the veterans. No other
greeting can warm the heart like this,
yet others as sincere would being their
en. Harrison's Response.
The president and the secretary of the
navy stood during the delivery of the
mayor's address. At its conclusion the

am called to make this attempt to speak to
you. 1 c tine here in the expectation that the

ship of the old veterans, but, to my surprise, I
have found that the first brigade, for the nrst

A Corner Mmie Laying.
With a reiteration of his thanks for the
warm welcome given him, tbe president

Tracy, Gen. Grosvenor, and others. At
the conclusion of the apeeebmaking a col

ceeded to Knox college, across the street,
where the corner-etoue of the new hall
was laid: At the laying of tbe corner-atone
Dr. Newtou Bateman, LL. D., president
of Knox college, pro lounced tha invoca

growth of the college. Professor J. A.
Adams tbeu introduced the president,
who, after a short address in eulog" of
education, concluding with the words,
"We. lajrthis cf ner-stone and dedicate
this institution o troth, puritv, loyalty,
and tbe love of G k!" -tppianse, took tho
small silver trowel and sprea I the mortar
around the base of the statue, and after a
benediction, the exercises closed.
A Souvenir of His Youth.
Returning to the hotel luncheon was
served, and immediately thereafter, while
he was preparing to go to the reunion,
the president received an old lady, a sis
ter of his former instructor, Joseph N.
Porter, who, much to the president's en
tertainment, showed him a letter written
by bim to his instructor in 1913, when
the future president was but 10 years old.
Adjt. Gen. Vance, of Illinois, and Col.
Gaines Lawtoo also presented to tbe pres
ident a letter of regret from Governor Fi

The Brigade Reunion and the President's
Address to the Vets.
When tbe president entered the opera
house be was greeted with cheers, which
were renewed when he took a seat on the
stage. Col. Dustin, addressing the presi
dent, announced to him his unanimous
re-election as president of the association.
The announcement was receive I With
cheers and applause. The president ac
knowledging tbe greeting addressed bis
old comrades at some length. He spoke
in nn easy, conversational tone. He said:
Con kadks: The object of my visit to Gales
burg was this m etinr which we are to have
now. I should not, I think, have been per
suaded to make this trip ex'-opt fiir the pleas
ure which I expected to tind in meeting the
men of the old brigade from whom 1 have
been sepa ated since the muster out day. We
have had a great demonstration, one very full
of Interest UHn the streets and in the park,
but 1 think we are drawn a litllj closer in this
meeting and understand each other a little
better t:ian in the larger assemblages of which
we have made a part. It is very pedant to
me to see so ni;iny of you here. I cannot re
call the name of a' I of you.

An Incident of the War.
After some reflections ou the motives
and resp msibilities of the vo:uuteers the
I we'l reineiiilsT an incident of the early
day- of v luntcering at indianntxili. when
the lirsi c inpatiies in response to the tir-tt call
ot IVei.ienl Lincoln tame hurrying to the
capiiar Among the first to arrive was one
from Lafayette, unler the co iitnaml of t'apt.
Chris Miller. T ev came in very tumult nous
ly and very enthusiastic for a fight. These
companies were organized into regi
ments, which, one by one, were sent into West
Virginia or other fields for servu-e. It hsp
jtened that ih regiment fo which my friend
Miller was assigned was the last to lave the
state. 1 met him oneday ou the treet, and a
more mad aud des. ondent s Id.er 1 never
it Rnotigh of I'iichring In Time.
He was not absolutely choice in the use of
his language; nil soldiers were not. 1 think
the Kir-t hrig.ide was an exception,
laughter 1 lie was nwearing like a pirate
over the ilisgrac . th-tt had befallen hitn and
his associate growing out of the fact that be
w a absolutely certaiu bat the war wmM be
over before th y got into the field: left in camp
a stranded regiment, having no (tart in putting
down the rebellion. Well, his day i-ame pres
ently, aud he ws ordered to V et Virginia,
and among the tlrt of those who under the
tire of ih- enemy at Ku-h Mountain received a
bullet through bis ImhIv was Captain MiKer.
Karly Trouble, in the Army.
Concluding this line of talk with the
statement that patriotism took the volun
teer Into the army, he proceeded:
The officers were sometimes bumptious and
unduly severe. I am enteri -g a p.ea in my
own Is-half now. Laughter. The soldiers
had not et gut to undemtand why a camp
guar t should te established, why they .hould
not be at as perfect liliertyto go to town as
they were when on the farmanlthe day
work was over. It was apposed that an army
was composed uf s. many men. but we had not
learned at thst time that it was absolutely
necessary that ail those men shou d be at the
bauie plae at the same time.
Arrive luty Cured Them.
Put those days were passed soo n and they
passed the .mner when the m n went into
active duty, t'auip duties were always irk
some an.i troubltsome, but when they were
changed for the active duties of the march
and ttehl. there was less need of restraint. I
always noticed there wa- no great need of a
camp guard after the hoys ha 1 mnri-hcd twen-ty-nve
miles. They did not need near so
inui-h watching at night.
Kvolution of an Kfl'ective Force.
He spoke of disease and death which
sifted out the weaker men of the army
and finally evolved "those great armies
which, under Grant and Sherman aud
Sheridan, carried the flag to triumph."
The survivors, or some of them, arc here to
lay and w hateverlse hat come to us io life,
whether in h.Hioror dtsa p .intmeiit, I do not
think there is any one of us not nie I am sure
who would to-day exchange the satisfac
tion, the heart comfort, we have in having
been a part of the great army that sub turd
the rebellion, that saved tbe country, the con
stitution and the Hag. Applause.
Close of the Gel. burg Oay.
At the c inclusion of the remarks of the
presideut Col. Dustin introduced Repre
sentative Henderson, of Illinois, who
made a brief speech. At its conclusion
the veterans filed across the stnge and
shook hands with the president. Many
of the greetings seemed to affect the pres
ident deeply, aud bis voice broke more
than once as he acknowledged them.
From the opern house the president was
driven to the hotel, where he retired to
his room to obtain a little rest. At niirht
he attended a banquet given by the Phi
Delta Theta society at College hall, and
made another address, and later a ban
quet given by the First brigade at the
First Christian church, after which he
boarded hi. trniu and started anew, fol
lowed by the cheers of a great throng
which had gathered at the station.
