General Harrison's Speech.
Chicago, April 29. This has been Chi
cago's busy day; and that is saying a good
deal; for Chicago is always busy, anil for
the past two years has been much so and
growing more so, the climax having ar
rived in these latter days of the month of
April, l&Ki. And, as is remarked above,
this Saturday, April 29, has been the busi
est day of them all. For the work was
pushed a little probably a great deal
harder at the fair grounds, and besides
that there were three receptions of distin
guished guests the avaut couriers of
the millions less distinguished who will
have come inside the city's gates ere the
close of the great exposition.
It Speaks Though Inanimate.
And first of these guests was one which,
tiough inanimate, spoke to the popular
heart with all deference be it said in
stronger, more enduring tones than many
of the eminent men whom Chicago shall
honor during the World's fair day and
months. It spoke of the birth of the love
of liberty in the Western continent; it
spoke of even years of fierce struggle
for nationality and freedom; the words it
spoke came from away back in '76 and
twenty-five years before that time, and
they were: "Proclaim liberty throughout
all the world and to all the nations
thereof." For this most eminent guest
was the "old Liberty bell."
Guarding the Old Bell at Night.
Last night it arrived. It had beeu on a
journey through three states, which was a
triumphal procession. At every stopping
place the high and low, rich and poor had
turned out to see it. In our neighboring
state on the east an ex-president in
glowing eloquence had told its story to
10,000 school children; and when its train
pulled into the Union station here last
night there was a great and cheering
crowd awaiting it. Guarding it on its
way west was a special committee, one
member of which was Philadelphia's
mayor, and to meet and welcome it to the
western metropolis Mayor Harrison and a
council committee went to the state line.
The bell remained on its car last night
guarded by the special detachment of po
licemen which came aloug with it and an
additional special detachment of Chicago,
Cleveland and Vera-ua.
The ottter distinguished guests were
President Cleveland and. Duke de Veragua,
the lineal descendant of the "admiral of
the ocean," the great Columbus. The duke

sisting of the duch

lera (that is not the
lull extent of their
names, but space is
valuable) arrived at
the Union station I
at 10:30 a. in., and '
' the president came j
in an hour or so '
later, the dukes
party was met at
the "station by a
comui ittee of al -Alderman
President Palmer, of the national World's
fair commission, and President -Higiu-botham,
of the local fair directory. A few
greetings were interchanged and then the
party took carriages for the Auditorium.
Irocession to the Hotel.
A procession was formed with a platoon
of police in the van, then a military escort
and next carriages containing committees
and federal, state and municipal authori
ties. The other carriages were occupied by
the duke and his party. There was a great
crowd of people at the station and through
the streets on the way to the Auditorium
and they gave the duke a greeting that must
have warmed his heart and let him know
that the wild west knows how to cheer.
At the hotel there was another immense
throng. The suite of rooms which the
duke and his party will occupy while here
was beautifully decorated with choice
flowers from the display in the horticul
tural building at the World's fair.
Given the Freedom of the City.
Here in a fairy land of flowers and other
decorations the party rested until the after
noon, when, at an bonr chosen by himself,
the duke received Mayor Harrison and a
committee of citizens. The mayor bore in
his hands resting in a casket, together with
an elaborately engrossed set of resolutions,
a bunch of keys. After some felicitous re
marks had been made, in which the
World' fair mayor took a principal part
and demonstrated that in the art of polite
and eloquent speech his tongue had not
forgotten its cunning. Mayor Harrison ad
vanced and presented to the duke the
casket, the keys which it contained, rep.
resenting the freedom of the city, and the
ceremonies of the duke's reception were
PRESIDENT CLEVELAND WELCOMED.
A Great Turn-out to See the American
It looked as though alP Chicogo was on
the streets as the time approached for the
president's arrival. At the station the
crowd was so dense that one could have
walked on heads for hundreds of feet.
Governor Altgeld, Mayor Harrison and
other prominent officials and citizens, in
cluding heads of the exposition, went out
to the state line in a special train and met
the president's special there. The presi
dent of the World's fair commission and
President Higinbotham met the chief
magistrate at the station on bis arrival in
the city. The party consisted of the presi
dent, vice-president and all the cabinet,
except Postmaster General BisselL
Received With a Mighty Cheer.
Aa the train rolled into the station a
roar as toe sound or many waters arose;
it was repeated as the president appeared
and it continued from the crowds that
lined the sidewalks all the way to the
Iexington hotel on Michigan avenue and
Twenty-second street. The procession
was formed with mounted police leading,
followed by a military escort consisting of
the Second regiment L Jf. G., headed by a
band. Then came carriages containing
the World's fair reception committee and
prominent, citizens, ten carriages tot
lowed, the first containing the president
and the second the vice president, those
occupied by the cabinet coming after. In
each of these carriages was an officer of
the World's fair or a national commission
er, except that the president was attended
by Governor Altgeld and Mayor Harrison.
Line of March to the Lexington.
The line of march to the hotel was as
follows: East on Adams street to Michi
gan avenue, and south to the Lexington
hotel. At the hotel there was a multitude
of people and the cheers were enthusiastic
and continuous. Here also the guest found
a suite of rooms that was a Coral bower,
the work of John Thorpe, who has charge
of the flowers at the World's fair. And
here he had a brief rest until the Liberty
bell procession came along, when with the
duke of Veragua and other gentlemen he
reviewed the parade.

The Ex-I'resident's Kloquent Address at
Indianapolis, April 29. Among all the
receptions tendered the Liberty bell on its
way to the Chicago fair none probably sur
passed in interest that given the relic at
this city. The city was bedecked with the
national colors and when the bell arrived
it was saluted with thirteen guns. The
car was run up toTennesee street where it
was viewed by nearly the whole city, in
cluding thousands of school children. An
escort of prominent citizens attended the

He said he was glad to participate in the
exercises and in behalf of Indianapolis
thanked the Philadelphians for giving In
dianapolis an opportunity to see the bell
"It is only a bell, and a dumb bell at that
It has spoken its great message to the
world and is now forever silent. It is not
the material thing that we shall look upon
with interest; it is that which it typifies.
It is the enduring thing for which it
stands that kindles our hearts and our en
thusiasm today. Cheers.
"I rejoice that there is a renaissance of
patriotism in the United States; I rejoice
to believe that to our own hearts the flag
means more today than ever before In our
history. Cheers. There are more people
that love it, and the generation that is
coming on will love it more fervently than
that which is passing off the stage.
Cheers. I rejoice that the American flag
floats over more of our schools of instruc
tion for the young today than ever be
fore." Continuing be said he had read with in
terest of the hoisting of the American flag
on the Navesink highlands, where it can
be seen by immigrants coming to cast their
lot with us. With the Bartoldi statue
it will be a good object lesson for those
who come to be American citizens.
"It was liberty this bell proclaimed, lib
erty throughout all the land, to all the
people thereof; and how wonderful that
nearly a quarter of a century before, when
the committee of the legislature selected
an inscription for that bell they uncon
sciously foretold the great act it was to
perform. Let us never forget that the lib
erty which this bell rang ia was a liberty
regulated by law cheers; a liberty to be
free to do as each one pleased only so far as
the rights of others were not invaded.
"Let us learn again this great lesson
that do worthy object can be promoted ex

Submission to public authority. Cheers-1
