The selebraUon f (iraut's birthday will
hereafter Vie a fixed event in Gaieii.i chron
ology. The idea originated with Mr. II.
II. Kohlsaat one of her sons and was
enthusiastically take n up by her citizens.
By common consent the day was declared
a public holiday and the population of
the town turned out en masse in its
Sunday-go-to-meeting raiment. Karly iu
the morning large contingents came in
from Freeport, Jiockford. Kl'in. Dubuque
and other points and swelled the crowd
on the streets. Portraits of the "great
commander"' looked out from the w iudows,
many of the business houses were gaily
decorated and the s!;;r and stripes floated
at the head of hundreds of pole.
Arrival uf (;iv. .llrKiuley.
A special train brought Governor Mc
Kinley and a party from Chicago, amo:ig
whom where II. II. Kohlsaat and wife,
"William Peuu Xixoti and wife, Kiitrene
gathered at the station and when the
"young Napoleon," of tiie tariff bill
alighted from the ear he was greeted with
a rousing thont that was repealed again
and again. I'nder the escort of, the re
ception committee the visitors were as
signed to the carriages in waiting and the
prucession which had in the meantime
"been in course of formation on the main
business street moved up the hill. The
Grant drum corps organized under the
patronage of its namesake over three dec
ades ago, and with which several of the
original members are still identified, was
given the honor of the rii;ht of line.
PARADE THROUGH THE CITY.
The Governor Ietrtel to the Hall iu Style
The procession was composed of Com
pany I.Third regiment I. X. G.; Knights of
Pythias, Grand Army, Odd Fellows aud
various other organizations, followed by a
long string of carnages, and made a tour
of the city to Turner hall, the chilly at
mosphere preventing the carrying out of
the original plan to hold the exercises at
the statue. The hall was packed to suffo
cation. On the platform were several old
friends and neighbors of the once presi
dent, among them ex-Senator K. H. Mc
Clelland, W. F. Felt; Kicard Barrett,

came ashore from the steamboat which
brought him to his new home and gave
him suggestions regarding the removal of
bis baggage and household effects; John
Corwith. William II. Snyder. Walter Ford,
David Sheehan, and Thomas L. McDer

roader, who sold Grant and members of

CARLISLE AND THE BANKERS.
He Has a Talk witti Tl-.eiu and Outlines a
Xkw York, ArrU 2. It is learned that
j Secretary Carlisle, at the residence of Geo.
! . Williams, president of the Chemical
National bank and chairman of the clear
ing house committee, met several other
bankers and a conference was held. The
Meeting was arranged ly Assistant Treas
irer Jordan, with the consent of Carlisle.
The conference did not result in the adop
tion of any plan designed to meet t he pend
ing crisis, but there was an interchange of
views which disclosed to some extent the
.policy of the financial head of the govern
ment. The secretary spoke frankly and
aid that it gave him pleasure to !e assured
iiiat they were anxious to assist the gov
ernment in every way possible.
Carlisle admitted that an issue of bonds
was about the only practical way ont of
the existing difficulty, but expressed his
repugnance to such a step because he
feared it would to some extent damage the
money market and unfavorably affect the
bank reserves. The chief objection to an
issue of bonds was that su action would
tend to impede the proposiTT repeal of the
Sherman silver law. lie held this law re
sponsible for ail the evils of the present
grave situation, and further, he condemned
in unmeasured terms the whole range of
j currency laws now in existence, but the re-
peai 01 me rtuenuHU lan ijr?i, m-c-ts.sii
lie added that the situation had recently
improved somewhat, and he believed that
matters had better rest where they were at
J 1 1 .1 111.
This statement by the secretary left the
baijkers to infer that an extra session
would be imperative at no distant day.
Pwing to the frank talk of Carlisle that
things would be allowed to move along as
at present there seemed to be no sugges
tion of asking for plans of relief, and the
bankers diil not feel it incumbent upon
Lhem to offer an outline of any particular
scheme for helping the government other
than the tenders of gold which have lieen
going on for some time. Carlisle will see
the bankers again todav.
