GREAlr DAY FOR CHICAGO.
Two Hundred Thousand People at the
Grant Afonntnrnt Unveiling.
Chicago, Q.t. 8. The vicinity of the
Grant monumnt in Lincoln park was a
scene yesterday never to be forgotten.
Packed in deuse masses along the new
breakwater and esplauade, north and
south of the monument on the unreserved
portion of the Lake Shore drive, and
among the trees west, north and south,
must have been 200,000 people of this ci'.y
and from various parts of the country.
The statue of Graut was hidden by the
folds of the flag he fought to sustain,
while out in the lake opposite the monu
ment wereascoreof steamship, including
the Michigan and the revenue cutters
Andrew Johnson and Fessenden, wfth a
large flotilla of smaller craft, all decked
out gaily with bunting.
The Procession Comes in View.
A little after 3 o'clock p. m. the
procession, headed by a dogen platoons
of police, marching with a swing
and regularity that elicited loud ap
plause, came into view, and for two
hours the tramp was kept up until the
Blopes around the monument were brill
iant with color, and gleaming with the
flash of bayonet and scabb.tr d. At
1:3J a gun was fired ai the signal for
the exercises to begin, and after the pre
liminary speeches a little daughter of
General Strong an old and valued frier 1
of General Grant pulled the cord that
unloosed the flags, which dropped grace
fully away, and to the music of a tremen
dous cheer the old commander's statue
Mailc Ont of Discord.
At the same moment the signal was
given on the Michigan and a gun flashed
from her port. The whistles of the
steamers were blown, the shrill shriek of
the smaller ones blending with the dia
pason of the larger and the boom of the
guns, making a magnificent choral that
echoed over the waters aud the
land and was musical in spite of
the discordant elements of which
it was composed. After a national salute
had been fired and the massed bands bad
played the "Star Spangled Banner," Judge
Gresham delivered the oration, an elo
quent and touching tribute to the memo
ry of his old commander and friend, and
it was dark before the enormous crowd
moved out of the park, and the hero's
statue was left in solitude. Mrs, Grant
was present during the ceremonies.
