Train Greeted by Reverent Throngs at
Every Station on Its Solemn Journey.
Indianapolis, Oct. 28. The funeral
train bearing the remains of Mrs. Benja
min Harrison and the party of friends
which accompanied them west arrived
here this morning. The trip from Wash
ington was an interesting one, and showed
that everywhere the Bad event had touched
one of those chords that makes the whole

Wasliinjrton to its arrival hero even at I
night the route was lined with sympa- j
thetic faces. At every station, however I
small, there was a proup of waiting pen
poople who wnu-ht'd the train speed by with
faces expressive of sorrow. At a nnmlier
of places the track was lined on each side
with school children.
A Cireat Crowd at Hu.rrii.biir:;.
The crowd in the station at Ilarrisburg
was entirely too great to be confined within
the limits appropriated to the public, aud
they swarmed through the gates and sur
rounded the train in large numbers. The
particular points of attraction, of course,
were the funeral car niid the bairgage com
partment containing the iloral emblems.
As the people approached the Alroy, in
which the casket lay, hais were dolled, and
the show windows and replaced with
mourning emblems and devices of various
kinds; while crepe and white rosettes were
displayed on many of the private residences
along the streets over which the funeral
procession moved to the cemetery.
Mo Official Ostentation.
United States Marshal KansdeU had
charge of the funeral arrangements here
and had arranged that ten soldiers from
the United States arsenal should be active
pall-bearers. But yesterday he received a
message from Washington intimating that
it was the president's desire that the ar
ranKements be so changed as to dispense
with the services of the ten soldiers. The
request was dne to the wish of the presi
dent to avoid anything savoring of official
display or ostentation. The honorary pall
bearers were: Judge W. A. Woods, Thos.
H. Sharpe, W. P. Fishbuck, Moses Mc
Lain, Dr. II. II. Allen, John B. ELam,
Hugh Hanna, K. B. Martindale; General
Lew Wallace, of Crawfordsville: Hon. W.
E. Niblack, of Vincennes; John It. Elder,
and Theodore P. Haughey.
Arrival of the Manrntnc Party.
So everything was ready when the funeral
train arrived. For blocks all around the
railway station the streets were crowded
with people. Business in the city was
nearly entirely susjiended, and many in
dustrial establishments bad closed in honor
of the gentle lady whose last journey was
so near completed. Quickly the travelers
disembarked, the casket was conveyed to
the hearse, and the march was taken up for
the First Presbyterian church followed ? y
a number of carriages containing the fu
neral party and Indianapolis friends. The
streets were lined with people who looked
on in reverent silence as the cortege pro
ceeded on its way.
The Veterans Turned Out.
As the cortege reached Ohio street a
sight that must have wanned the heart ol
the president met his view. In military
ranks lietwecn Meridian and Pennsylvania
on lioth side of the street stood the various
G. A. It. posts of the city 5,0(10 strong
turned out to do honor to the memory of
their old comrade's wife. With uncovered
heads they stood while the procession
passed through the lines to the church.
Here the casket was again lifted, carried
into the church followed bv the mourners,
ne and deposited in front of the pastor's table.

The Hells I'layed a Requiem.
The crowds that marked the transit of
the train through the large cities was a
striking evidence of the general regard in
which Mrs. Harrison was held by the peo
ple of the country. In several instmices
were three shields similarly festooned, and
so arranged s to typify a burst of sunlight,
the entire effect being extremely striking.
Wide drapi:.gs of black ran the etitire
length of .the edifice over the stained glass
windows, relieved at each panel with mon
ster rosettes of white. Two American lla-js
were draped over the front of the gallery,
beneath which the procession passed on en-

last year. While the train stood in the
station at Ilarrisburg the sweet strains
of Muhlenberg's hymn, "I Would Not
Live Always," pealing forth from thechimes
of the First Lutheran church; a block or
two from the station, greeted the ears of
the passengers and fell like balm upon the
sorely wounded hearts of the sorrowing
V Contrast of Appliances.
At Duncannon, Newbury and elsewhere
thane scenes were repeated. While passing
along this portion of the route members of
the party on the train could not avoid mak
ing a mental contrast between the appli
ances of modern transportation and those
in vogue half a century ago. Along the
railroad and between it and the water of
the blue Juniata which it skirted ran the
old canal. On its waters in a canal boat of
the ancient kind was borne the body of
President William -Henry Harrison on its
way from Washington to its final resting
place in the oid family burying ground at
North Bend, O. In this vicinity a numlter
of old-fashioned wood bridges cross the
Juniata at right angles to the line of the
road, one end abutting almost against the
track. On these over the piers were balco
nies built out on the face of the super
structure which afforded splendid views of
the train as it passed along.
In the Forest Fire Region.
As the train approached Iewiston Junc
tion it came into the drouth-stricken region,
and a heavy pall of smoke hanging over o-ie
of the hills attracted attention. As it
rounded the curve of the river and came di
rectly in view of the limit of the fire ex
clamations of surprise were drawn from all
who looked upon the sight. Running up
the hillside from the water's edge to the
summit was a distinct line of flames thread
ing it way through the heavy growth of
timber like a yellow ribbon. It was a sight
that few, if any, had ever witnessed, and
while none could lose sight of the dread
consequences the weird beauty of the scene
impressed itself upon alL

On sped the train through the smoky air
and shortly after the shades of night fell
over all anu the stations passed were
wrapped In gloom. Still it was 'seen that
at each station there was a groun who
watched the train go by with heads bowed
and hats doffed. Aitoona was reached On
time, engine and crew were changed and
the journey was resumed. At this place
the reception almost amounted to a demon
stration. Pittsburg was reached at 10:40
p. m. and SteubenviUe, O., at 11:10. On
passing into Indiana the stations en route
all showed throngs of people and the scenes
were similar to those through Pennsylvania
and Ohio. The train reached this city at
about 8:30 a. m. today. .

Services in the Church.
The church seats only about SOU ieople,
so that organized clubs or other bodies
could not be invited. One exception to
this rule was made in behalf of about sixty
members of General Harrison's regiment,
the Seventieth, who were given seats in the
south aisle. About one-third of the seat
ing capacity of the edihee wus reserved for
the iramedinte family relatives and friends,
and those of the general public who were
first on the ground were admitted until
every seat was occupied. The doors were
then closed. Everything- being in readi
ness the sti ins of the organ were heard in
prelude, and then softly stealing through
the edifice the voices of the choir singing
"Ixad Kind'y Light." Rev. Dr. Haines,
Mrs 11 arrisot.' pastor d uring t he lat ter years
of her residence iu this city, then delivered
a short, invocation. A selection of Scrip
ture was read and the pastor made a bri"f
address. Tl mourners were then led in
prayer by Kev. Dr. Hyde, of the Congrega
tional church, and after the rendition of the
hymn comnn tiring "One Sweetly Solemn
Thought,"' Dr. Haines pronounced the ben
ediction. So ended the service.

services were short and soon to the words
"Earth to Earth, Dust to Duts, Ashes to
Ashes," the clods were heard falling over
the form of the beloved of the nation's
president. "I heard a voice from Heaven
saying unto me write: Blessed are the
dead who die in the Lord, for they rest from
Left to Her Eternal Rest.
Slowly and sadly they turned away and
left her to her everlasting rest. What
were the emotions of the bereaved husband
those who have passed through the fire of
similar bereavement know. As the last
spadefull of earth was laid on the mound
the president and other mourners with
streaming eyes sought their carriages and
soon the spot was deserted and the last act
in the drama of the life of Caroline Scott
Harrison was ended.

Again the casket was lifted and borne '
down the aisle to the hearse, and the last '
stage of the sad journey was soon began.
As the bearers slowly mads their way down
the passage the audience rose to its feet
and the orr m softly played a solemn
march. As the doors of the hearse closed
on the casket for the last time a platoon of
police swung into line in front. Following
were the carriages containing the clergy
men and pell bearers. The hearse was
neat and directly behind it came the presi
dent and the immediate relatives, followed
by the members of the cabinet and their
ladles. . After these followed Governor
Chase and the state officials, the ladies'
board of the Orphan home, the members of
