Washixoton, Sept. 30. The exercises of
the Grand Army encampment began in
earnest yesterday according to the pro
gramme given in these dispatches. The pa
llida preceding the dedication of Grand
Army Place was one of great interest to
the Gr.tnd Army men as well as other sr)ec-
iOimlll JOHN PALMER,
xtors, because of the opportunity it afford-
1 of contrasting the appearance and move
inents of the veterans with the precise and
rnodern methods of the soldiers of Uncle
Pam's regular army and navy, for the prin-
cipal part in yesterday's parade was taken
by tlie regular soldiers, sailors and marines
stationed in Washington, and the District
of Columbia national guard, which ranks
high in the points of efficiency, drill and
mildierly apjiearance among the militia or
ganizations of the country.
Reviewed by the Vice President.
The procession consisted of five brigades,
commanded by General Eugene A. Carrus
sa.'as follows: Troops of the regular army,
naval lwUteries and marines. District na
tional guard, iists of the department of
the Potomac, Grand Army of the Republic
and Sons of Veterans. The procession
started at 10 o'clock from Second street,
,west of the Capitol, and was reviewed by
the vice president from the reviewing stand.
Upon arrival at Grand Army Place the ex
ercises were liegun by prayer and music,
fvhich was followed by the address of Com
mander in Chief Palmer.
i General Palmer's Address.
Palmer was applauded vigorously when
he arose and said:
"Comr.vpks: For the first time since the
close of the great civil conflict you will have
an opportunity of meeting your comrades
in arms in a headquarters provided for
each of the great army corps that existed
during the war. It would certainly be in
vidious of me to single out or attempt to
mention any particular corps for its gallant
service. I know that human nature on the
average is about alike, and I can appreciate
how every soldier took sjiecial delight in
speaking with pride of the service rendered
by the corps in which he served, and no one
will object if when you get together today
the recollections of past dangers tempt you
to be enthusiastic.
All Loyal to the Cause.
"Whatever differences of opinion we may
have as to the gallantry of the several corps,
there is one point upon which we all agree,
that whether it was the comrade who wore
the star or t he eagle, whether it was he who
were the insignia of a non-commissioned
officer or the common soldier who carried
his musket in the ranks, each was loyal to
the common cause for which he served, and
each tried to do his full duty as he saw it.
The same cau lie said for each corps and its
gallant commander; each did its full share
in the contest and each shared in the glor
ious achievements of the Union army.
Reference to the lead.
"The thought that so many of our gal
lant leaders cannot be with us today fills
our hearts with many sad reflections.
They would resjiond cheerfully at the call
of friendship as they did in 1861 to the call
of duty. The vacant places they have
left in our ranks are more suggestive than
the presence of the living and if they are
not with us today it is because other
glories are reserved for them, while we are
left with otlters to enjoy the fruits of their
The President's Absence.
"And now, comrades, I know you will
share my feelings of profound regret over
the circumstances which caused the absence
of one whom you would all have been de
lighted to see and hear, and who anticipated
joining you in all thefestivitiesof the week;
a comrade whose gallant services to the na
tion in the hour of peril have been supple
mented by his wise and patriotic manage
ment of the affairs of this great republic in
time of ieace Comrade Benjamin Har
rison." Telegram from I-oon Lake.
He then read a telegram from President
Harrison who said he had looked forward
with great pleasure to this meeting with
his old comrades, and would have esteemed
it one of the highest honors of his life to
have welcomed them to the capital of an
unbroken union. He closed: "It would
also have been one of the most favored and
tender incidents of my private life to have
taken these comrades by the hand agaiu,
but all this has been denied me by the in
tervention of a sad and imperative duty,
and I can only ask you to give to all my
cardial greeting and good wishes. Accept
my sincere thanks for your very kind and
The reference to President Harrison was
the signal for enthusiastic cheering which
lasted some time.
and as commander-in-chief of the army and
navy of the United States. The president
has been lately standing at the gates of the
nation to challenge the entrance of an im
plicable enemy that must be confronted at
the outposts. While we need his high re
solve an inflexible will in defense of the
people from an insidious foe, now that he
is standing at the bedside of one dearer to
him than life we may not forget what he
owes to the tenderest relation ot numanity,"
and a chord of affectionate sympathy
reaches him from every hamlet and home
in the land. God give him grace in this
hour of need.
Dedication of the "Place."
"In the order of time this may or may not
be your last grand review, but 1 express!
the hope of a grateful people that!
heaven will Ijounteously lengthen out ynuJ
lives before you are called to the other
shore to rejoin the ranks of your compan

Of the whole American people, I dedicate
this 'Grand Army Place,' and the commem
orative memorials which it is believed will
lie hereafter erected upon it to the everlast
ing glories of the G rand Army of the Re
public. God bless you all, and those who
today unite with you in strengthening the
Union of the great republic.
Welcome to the Roys in lllue.
"I bid you welcome in behalf of the presi

Took a Look at the Kearsarge.
After the ceremonies were over the vet
erans took a look at the '-life sized" model
of the Kearsarge. She is built as massively
as the real ship. The rigging is of the
strongest kind, and is placed and Tattled
down" precisely as on any sea-going, liark-
riggcd vessel. Kverything from stem to
stern is built as strongly as braces and nails
could make it. Some few of the minor ap
pointments of the old vessel, such as
hatches and the like, are left off purposely
in order to make room for sittings, prome
enades, and daucing. The deck is marked,
however, to show the location and size or
the hatches and tracks of the swivel guns.
Two breech-loading guns point out of the
forward ports, which will lie used for salut
ing purposes and to "tire down" the ensign
at sunAlown. The cabin is 16 by 40 feet,
and is nicely finished. The walls are in
imitation of paint and the ceiling is covered
and decorated handsomely with new flags.
Around the walls are models of vessels rep
resenting the old and new navy.
' The Dolphin and Vesuvius.
After this view of a tyiie of the old navy
thousands of the veterans went to the navy
yard and examined two of the new navy
the Dolphin and Vesuvius. They are not
of the latest type, but the difference was
sufficiently marked to bring forth expres
sions of wonder from the visiting veterans.
The Vesuvius, with its three pneumatic
tubes capable of throwing 100 pounds of
dynamite a mile; its rapid firing secondary
battery that can send a perfect storm of
shot at an enemy, and the Dolphin, with
her 4-inch breech loading rifles. 6-pounder
rapid firing guns aud other offensive and
defensive armor, were a revelation to those
who were familiar with the means of war
RECREATION IN THE EVENING.
Hostile to Any Secret Society.
GALENA, Ills., Sept. 20. The Rev. John
Klindworth, who is pastor of a Lutheran
church in Galena, and his son, who has
charge of a country parish, are causing a
sensation by their hostilities to the Grand
Army of the Republic and the Farmers"
Alliance. Doth organizations being in a
measure of a secret character, the two
preachers place them under the general ban
proclaimed by their synod against secret so
cieties. The sou refused the sacrament to
niemliers of either organization. The father
refused John Sass the sacrament because
he belonged to the Grand Army, and noti
fied him to withdraw from the order or
stand suspended from the church. Sass

absence and its cause.
Presentation to Palmer.
A pleasant incident took place in the
parlors of the Ebbitt house last evening in
the presentation of a beautiful grand army
Iwulge to Commander-in-Chief Palmer by
his aids and one to his wife. The presenta
tion speech was made by Chief Aide Hull
Grant who lauded and commended General
Palmer as a man and commander. The
genei-d made a fitting response for himself
and Mrs. Palmer. The general's badge is a
lieautiful bit of workmanship of gold and
d:a::n.us. The badge given Mrs. Palmer,
while not so elaborate, is an artistic bit of
Reception to the Ladies.

is mounted on his famous black stallion at
the head of his command.
When Logan Rallied the Men.

The tapestry will also form part of the dec
Oration of Mrs. Logan's house tonight.
Alleged Wonderful Cures.

Warman, a colored minister, is creating a

afflicted and then offers up a prayer. The
local papers give accounts of his cures.
Two men who were cripples for twenty
years threw away their crutches and
walked away. Paralyzed women were re
stored to health and other wonderful cures
