honor the most distinguished citizen of
oar state. We see tonight a scene most!
beautiful in our form of government,
scene grand in its simplicity. It was never
seen in the history of the world until seen in
our American republic One who has been
clothed with the highest power in the nation
which has no equal amoug the nations of
tha earth tonight returns to take his station
in the common walk of life. Four years

bini back again.
A Cordial Welcome Home.
' am glad to say to General Harrison,
forgetting the differences which may have
separated us in the past, that we welcome
him home. 1 am glad to believe that when
his life may be written, as citizen, as sen
ator, and as chief executive of this great
country, we shall see he has filled the meas
ure of our expectation, and of duty well
dona. I can extend to him a most cordial
welcome, and all will unite with me to
night in welcoming him among us. Again
Indiana welcomes you with open arms "
RESPONSE OF GEN. HARRISON.
His Absence Feels to Him Like Ten Years
Instead of Four.
Addresses were also made by Mayor
Sullivan, who was chairman of the occa
sion, and Hon. C. W. Fairbanks. In re
sponse General Harrison said: "I do not
think, even if the circumstances were more
favorable than now snrround us, I could
ay more than the fewest words of thanks.
Four years aj;o if the calendar is consult
ed I left you to assume high responsibil
ties. If I should consult heart and mind
I should say ten years had elapsed since I
bade goodbye to my Indianapolis friends.
Not the rising and the setting of the sun,
butourexperieuces. give the true sense of
duration. I come back to Indianapolis,
for. since I came to manhood, I have had
no other home.
Too Old to Make a New Home.
"Suggestions of an attractive sort were
made to me to make a home elsewhere; but
it seemed to me that the onlv home for
me was Indianapolis. Chet-rs.J I am too
old to make a new nome; not too old, I
hope, to renew those old associations that
trade this so dear a home, and to take
within the circle of my affectionate regard
the multitude of new faces that I see here
tonight. This city has made a wonderful
giowth si nee I left it.. I shall have to learn
again .the landmarks Change, improve
ment, expansion and increase are every
where apparent, and in all this I rejoice
Progress of the State and Nation.
"The state of Indiana has made corre
sponding increase. Factories and homes
have greatly multiplied. Our population
nas greatly increased, wealth has been de
veloped, and I trust and believe that with
this advancement along material lines
there has been a corresponding increase
and development of the heart and of the
home which alone can make a exeat reo
pie. The nation, too, has had its growth
and development. Some new lines of
progress nave Deen indicated.
A Ship for Commerce and One for War
"Within the last few weeks I had the
pleasure of lifting over one of the greatest
merchant steamships that floats the sea
that flag of beauty that hanes before me.
Cheers. I regarded it aa the precursor
and the promise of the return of that time
when the American flag was seen on every
sea ana me American navy was held in ea
timation by other nations. Cheers. Only
one week ago I had the pleasure of seeing
the greatest ship that has ever been built
in America a battleship which, when com
pleted would be able to codb with the
greatest ship that England has upon the
sea noat irom her ways into the Delaware
witn the name "Indiana" on ber side.
A Great Sorrow. Bat Ko Shame.
"I will not speak to you of those duties
which these years of absence have brought
me, nor the manner of their performance.
I Jelt you with but one certainty and I re
torn with that the certainty that I had
no other motive in my heart than the
honor of the flag, the sacredness of the
constitution and the prosperity of all our
people, Cheers. I come to you again
accompanied by a great sorrow, but 1 trust
and your presence here gives tne your
witness un-.tteiHie,! in nuv s.ia'ue crow
Itereptton Follows the Speaking. I
"Add to your great kindness and to this
great welcome which you have extended to
tne today the kindness of excusing me j
from attempting to speak to you
further. I shall be glad to carry out the
arrangement of the committee and to take
as many of you as I may by the hand, and
in those days and weeks that are to come
to meet you ui my home and in your homes
as opportunity may offer. May God bless
you all." Cheers.
After the address the ex-president shook i
hwls with hundred of people and it was
at a iste hour that he was driven to his
RECEPTION AT THE STATION.
Great Cheering When the Km-Chlef Mag
istrate Arrived Home.
There were a large number of military
and civic organizations at the railway sta
tion when the ex-president's train arrived
in the morning. The first organization to
reach the station was the German Veteran
association, in charge of Captain Louis
Kern. It formed on the plaza. General
Harrison's regiment, in charge of W. H.
Cooper, came next, halting in Meridian
street at the cast of the train sheds. The
several Grand Army posts of the city, all
under the command of General Kneffler,
soon arrived and ;wcre given their stations
near the point of exit from the station.
The whole throng was cheering itself
hoarse, but there was a lull for a moment
ss General Harrison appeared in full view.
Tremendous Shout of Welcome.
Then a tremendous shout that almost
shook the iron girder building went up.
The ex-president lifted his hat, bowed and
smiled, and Master McKee, who clung to
his band, opened his eyes in wonder. As
Mr. Harrison reached the platform Gov
ernor Matthews grasped his hand, followed
in turn by Mr. Hildcbrand. An old woman
wearing deep mourning had pushed her
way through, and in an instant had Mr.
Harrison's hand in both of hers, and shook
it vigorously. John W. Murphy alighted,
followed by Mayor Sullivan, and then came
the remainder of the reception committee
Had a Smile for the '"Old Glory."
All of this time the cheering continued
and Mr. Harrison was kept busy bowing
and smiling. Mr. Harrison moved for
ward and, on the arm of Governor Mat
thews, with bared bead, started toward
the carriage. His eyes rested on the large
flag draped across the top of the big iron
gates and hi smiled approvingly. The
members of the reception committee
opened ranks and lifted their hats as he
passed through. Way was made through
the crowd and the party was escorted to
the carriages in front of the station. '
Grand Ovation to the Home-Comer.
The carrices moved with a body of old
soldiers on eithar side, many of them being
members of Harrison's old regiment. The
nde up Illinois street was a perfect ovation
for the ex-president. Cheer upon cheer
rent the air, and at one or two points he
was covered with flowers thrown from the
crowd, which seemed to please him exceed
ingly. People pressed forward to catch
sight of him, and in the crowds he re
cognized many old acquaintances, to whom
he spoke by name. As he turned on W ash
ington street he was greeted by glad shouts
oi welcome, and from the windows and
verandas of the buildings hats and hand
kerchiefs were waved.
Arrival at the Old Home.
At Market street a halt was made and
ranks were opened and the carriages drove
tnrough to the Denison. Here was sta
tioned the Indianapolis band playing "Anld
Lang byne." At the Denison the horses at
tached to the carriages "were made to
quicken their pace, and Harrison and the
party with him were driven to the family
residence on North Ucla ware street. During
the afternoon a few personal friends visited

Gave the Company a Surprise,
There is a feud of two years' standing
between the city and the company owing
to the refusal of the mayor to permit the
company to enter upon certain land for
station purposes. The city is now repair
ing a span of the Lackawanna avenue
bridge, beneath which pass the double
tracks of the company. To repair this
span it became necessary to erect two
wooden pillars between the tracks. This
was done as a surprise at 7 a, m.
Not Afraid of Their Cans.
At 2 o'clock the company learned of it
and sent a wrecking crew to the bridge to
remove the pillars. Three of the men were
arrested and then the wrecking crew re
tired for re -enforcements. When they re
turned they bad with them an engine and
a freight car. These were placed one on
each track and chained together. Twenty-
five policemen with drawn revolvers
guarded the bridge and warned the en
gineer that be would be shot if he tried to
tear down the pillars. Nevertheless he put
on a full he and of steam and the ears
struck the pillars with a crash.
Put 200 Persons in Peril.
The bridge trembled and 300 people on it
sent up a shriek of terror, ihe drawhead
of the car pulled out, but the pillars re
mained. The engineer, fireman and six
trackmen were arrested and held in heavy
ban. i ne mayor nas cauetl out the sher
iff's posse and the police are now in undis
turbed possession of the locality. Had the
