the villitge president, H. O. Curponter,
and Colonel Joel C. leaker, chairman of
the locnl reception committee. Secretary
Proctor, Private Secretary JIalford, Gen
W. G. Venzey nud George J. AVardell

turned to the business center it fell be
hind the Kingsley Guards and the Rob
erts post, G. A. R., which, headed by a
brass baud, led the way to Memorial hall,
a beautiful granite building, from which
broad lawns sloped gradually to the

The president entered the rear of the
building, and after a few minutes was es
corted to the front of the building and in

luncheon. Some of the party drove over
to West Rjtland, but the president re
turned to Secretary Proctor's'house, where
be retired to his room almost immediately
to take a nap He complained of being
very tired. The sky had bs-n cloudy and
clear alternately throughout the day, but
no rain fell after lu o'clock in the "morn
ing. The unfavorable weather of Thurs
day night had promised to spoil the nr
rangments for the celebration last even
ing, as the chief feature planned was an
illumination out of doors.
Plans for the Evening's f estivities.
The plan for the president's reception
had been left to the people of Proctor. who
are, with few exceptions, in the emploj of
the Vermont Marble company. They had
decorated their houses with bunting, and
the public library, the public schools and
other village buildings had been festooned.
The homes of Secretary Proctor, his s'-u
Fletcher Proctor, and Mr. Morse, the
treasurer of the company, are on three
hills overlooking the "village. These
bouses had been draped with bunting.
On the broad sloping lawn in front of Sec
retary Proctor's house a stand Imd been
built for the president. As evening came
on lights began to gleam from the win
dows of the houses in the village.
BRILLIANT AND BEAUTIFUL SCENE.

nation and Fireworks.
One by onS the windows of the three
houses on the hills brightened. Then
colored lights beaa to show on the
piazzas and to fringe the edge of the road.
They came from Chinese lanterns hung at
brief intervals. From an arch in front of
Secretary Procter's lioue the word "Wei
come" gleamed in letters of Ere. Above
this arch was a wheel revolving horizon
tally, hung with colored lanterns. A
Etring of jwnterns was swung from Vf.
Proctor's Ljuse irom the front to the
roaJway. The broad green luwu, wiifl
lighted with two Ljge headlights, which
brought out the brlirin colors of the bunt
ing on the front of the house.
The Torchlight Jreein.
At 8 o'clock a procession started from the
company's store. It was headed by the
Proctor band, composed of ejnplnyes of
the marble company. The line of
march was through the village, rhoe
streets wind around the sides of
the hills on which Proctor is built. From
the windows of Secretary Proctor's house
the president could see the long line of
flickering lights weaving in and out until
it stretched itself out iu a long curve,
headed for the Proctor mansion. The
village people to the iiumlier of neany
1,000 had nattered on the lawn of Mr.
Proctor's house and iu the roadway be
The Hills Lighted by Signal Fires.
As the torchlight procession moved to
ward the Proctor mansion a great flame
leaped up irom the top of the mountain
across the valiey more than a mile away.
Answering it. signnl fires flamed from a
dozen hill tops ail arouud. while through
the village columns of fire from great
torches of pitch and shavings made the
cloud-hung heavens red with theii glare.
Even the little river seemed aflame as a
great fire vault blazed out midway be
tween its banks. At the same time, from
a house boat anchored just below the cov
ered bridge, a dozen rockets rushed heav
enward and filled the sky with colored
stars. From one of the hills to the left
also rockets and bombs were sent up.
Half a Mile of Chinese Lanterns.
Across the valley were stretched half a
mile of Chinese lanterns, hundreds of feet
in the air. From the piazza of Secretary
. Proctor's house only an imperfect view of
the valley could be obtained, owing to the
foliage, and many members of the presi
dential party, under the leadership of
Frank Partridge, walked over to the hill
on which stands Fletcher Proctor's house.
It was five minutes before nine o'clocc
when the head of the procession reached
Secretary Proctor's house. A band led the
way. Behind came a chorus of little girls
singing "Red, White and Blue." Then
came the torch-bearers. At five minutes
pas nine o'clock. Secretary Proctor stepped
to the front of the platform erected in
front of his piazza, and addressed his
neighbors. He was greeted with prolonged
tpplaase. Three cheer were given for

beginning with a few words of admira
tU n o( the brilliant spectacle gotten up
for his entertainment the president con
gratulated his hearers on their situation,
tn-s comfortable conditions tinder which
th''y lived and labored, and contrasted
thm with the condition of the laborers in
mrny cities. He praised their employer,
Se -retary Proctor, for the "liberal manner
in which he conducted bis business here,
an 1 expressed the opinion that the indus
try which he conducted presented the
idal relations of employer and employe.
He was sorry that such a condition could
nor exist everywhere.
Doesn't -Sympathize with Cheapness.
Proceeding he said: ''I cannot always
sympathize with the demand which we
heir so frequently for cheap things.
Things may be too cheap. m They are too
chtap when the man who produces them
upon the farm, or the man or woman who
prx duces them in the factory, does not get
out of them living wages, with a margin
for old age and a dowry for the children
that are to follow. Applause. I pity
that man who wauts a coat so cheap that
the man or woman who weaves the cloth
or thapes it into a garment shall starve in
the process," (Applause. The president
closed with an expression of profound
gratitude for the welcome given him. The
spei-ch was applauded to the echo.
At the conclusion of the president's re
ma ks the crowd gavethree hearty cheers,
the band struck up "Hail to the Chief
and a shower of rockets filled the air.
The president retired to the hall-way of
the house, where he shock hands with the
chillren of the chorus which had sung in
the procession. At 10:15, iu company with
Secretary Proctor, he drove down to the
station and at 1U:S0 tiie special train left

Something That Is Reliable.
Acting Secretary Wharton, of the state
department, received the following cable
gram last night from United States Con
sul McCreary at Valparaiso:
'Valparaiso, Aug. 2S. Battle fought
near city this . morning. Government
forces badly beaten. Heavy loss both
sides. City surrendered to opposition,
but in hands of admirals of American,
German, French and Knglish fleets for

Senor Lazcano, the Chilian minister,
said Vast evening that he bad received no
news from Chiii other than the dispatch
from the minister of foreign affairs given
to the press Thursday. He was shown
the dispatch received by the Congressional
envoys in Washington yesterday announc
ing a victory for the Congressional party,
but said he knew nothing concerning its
truth. When he was told of the contents
of Mr. McCreary's diKpatch,-he sent back
word that he had nothing to say.
settles the Matter lieyniid Doubt.
The official news of the insurgent vic
tory in Chili, cabled to the state depart
ment by the Unired States consul at Val
paraiso, settles beyond doubt the conflict
ing reports of the past few days concern
ing the condition of affairs at the seat of
war. The receipt of dispatches from Val
paraiso telling of a victory fo,the lialma
cedists is explained by state and navy de
partment officials as resulting from Bal
maceda's control of the cable line from
Reasons for Incredulity.
Doubt as the absolute authenticity of
these dispatches was tspreSBed in official
circles yesterday, for the reason that it is
a custom in vogue here, a part of diplo
matic etiquette in fact, that when a min
ister receives an important dispatch from
his home government that is given out-for
publication, it is sent at once to the state
department for the iuformstion of this
government. This was not done, and, as
a result, the department officials and the
members of the diplomatic corps now in
town discredited the stories and inclined
t3 the belief that there was nothing more
tlian some skirmishing.
IN A STATE OF COMMOTION.
The Congressionali&t Headquarters Re
In the headquarters of the Chilian Con
gressional envoys there was a state of com
niJtion last night over the news of the
victory of the Congressional forces at Val
paraiso. Dom IVdro Montt, the chief
representative, is in Montreal, nud Scnor
Varas is in San Francisco, but Mr. Julio
Foster, the remaining euvoy, was besieged
with callers to offer congratulations, aud
he was in a state of delighted excitement.
Numerous telegrams of congratulation
were received during the evening from
prominent people iu Chili who are in
sympathy vit'ithe Congressional force.

sisted that Balmaceda would not be de

has a son who holds office indirectly under
Balmaceda. "The sou is about 19 years of
