MANY HAPPY RETURNS OF THE DAY. i
Arkell Prop. the Sentiment and the
1'rci.itlent Kenpoiiri. '
When the coffee was served Senator Ar !
kell. who presided over the feast, aroe, '
and calling the assembly to ord-r, baid: !
The president of the United States, wLo :
is our guest today, on account of his worn i
lungs from continued speaking, and Lis I
not, perhaps, enfeebled condition, but
sore condition of the throat, is solicitous I
that this be a Quaker meeting, one of un-
spoken eloquence, if you please. Let me
say. however, that this being the 5Mu j
birthday of the president, Benjamin Har- '
rison applause, we can properly extend ;
to him in this informal gathering of neih-j
bors and friends the heartiest and most !
sincere wishes on the commemoration of'
this anniversary." j
A Tribute t the "Old Commander." j
President Harrison arose, aad amid
great cheering began: i
Me. arkell and Friends: It was 1
a part of the covenant of this feast that it
should be a silent one; not exactly a
Quaker meeting, as Mr. Arkell saidbe
cause silence there is apt to be broken by
the moving of the spirit. That is not a
safe rule for a banquet. I rise only to
thank our generous host and these gentle
men from different parts of the state who
honor this occasion for their friendliness
and their esteem. We are gathered here
in a spot which is historic. This moun
tain has been fixed in the affection and
reverent memory of all our people, and
haa been glorified by the death on its
umit of Gen. U. S. Grant. Applause
It was fit that that great spirit that had
already lifted it's fame to a height un
known in American history and in the
affections of the American people should
take its flight from this mountain top.
Great Lives Never Go Out.
"It has been said that a great life went
out here; but great lives like that of
General Grsnt do not go out They go on,
I will ask you in reverent and affectionate
and patriotic remembrance of the services
of that man who came to recover nil fail
ores in military achievement and with hia
great generalship and inflexible purpose
to carry the flag of tbe republic to ulti
mate triumph; recalling with reverent in
terest his memory, to drink a toast in
silence as a pii-dge that we will ever keep
in mind his a great services and in doing so
will perpetuate great citizenship and the
glory of the nation he fought to save."
Formal Reception at Night.
At the conclusion of the president's re
marks he left the table and after shakicg
hands with a number of people who were
presented to him in the hotel lobby, re
turned to Arkell cottage. There he re
mained through the early evening. Iast
night accompanied by members of the
family he went over to the hotel where be
held an informal reception at which were
presented to hi ni all of the guests of the
house. He leturned to the cottage about
10 o'clock to get a good night's rent prepa
ratory to his fishing trip today.
Em-Minlater Foster's M Is ion.
Hon. John W. Foster came to Mt. Mc
Gregor last night on a special train to
hold a consultation with the president.
He said to the United Press correspondent
that he could not tell tbe natur of his
business with the president, but it is
learned that it is to consult the president
about the interpretation of a disputed
clause in the Spanish reciprocity treaty,
which goes into effect Sept. 1.
