Hlioutcrl Mayor Iliirrison at the Columbian
celi'lrutioii nt Jackson purk as the end of
the "Star Spangled Iianncr" was reached
by the chorus and bawls; and never before
in this country was there heard such a
burst of Htmn as came at the word.

It was the climax of n scene that began
when Mayor llarrisou paused in his speech
of welcome, and stepping to the table
pithed up a snail bunch of red and white
carnations. Waving them in the face of
the multitude he exclaimed: "Here are
flowers from the grave of Thomas Jeffer
son, n mighty hero of the days of Amer
ican independence." Then laying down

the flowers and p:cking up a sword with
a magnificent gildid scabbard he contin
ued with increased dramatic effect as he
waved it around his head: "Here Is the
word of another great defender of Amer
ica, Andrew Jackson." A great shout
went tip from the throng. "The supreme
moment is at hand," continued the mayor
whose watch denoted that it was within
a minute of noon.
Mr. Stafford's Hoists the Flag.
For a moment the multitude stood breath
less. Venerable Mrs. Stafford, shaking
and trembling in every limb, rose and
grasped the cord of the flag pole.
"The moment is here," shouted the
mayor. A roar of cannon; and then with
palsied fingers the old lady drew the cord
toward her, and Paul Jones' flag, old and
faded, but still a priceless emblem of lib
erty, went up to the top of tha pole in fall
view of the throng. Simultaneously Mayor
Harrison again grasped the Jackson sword,
and brandishing it over his head shouted
above the roar of cheers: "Men and women
of America. Let every American swear at
this moment and by this sword that he
stands ready to draw his sword in the de
' fense of his country."
x Swore Devotion to the Ensign.
Forward to the stand like the roar of a
tidal wave sweeping inland, came the
voices of tens of thousands of resolute
men, and the weaker voices of thousands
of the gentler sex. "Yes, yes. We swear,
we swear." From the balconies of the
structures behind and before, to the north
' to the south, down from the dome of the
Administration building came like aa
echo the deep earnest roar, -'Yes, yes. We
swear, we swear." Still the mayor stood
with sword pointed toward the flag like
Ajax defying the lightning. The moment
was intense with feeling; one of those
moments that are experienced but once in
a iife-time. Then the scene changed.
With a preliminary burst of melody the
combined hands commenced the strains of
the Star Spangled Banner and the chorus
was 1ih),(khi voices.
"iod lllrsa You for This Day."
As the flual notes of the Star Spangled
Dunne r died away Mayor Harrison crossed
the platform and grasicd the shaking
hands of Mrs. Stafford, who still clung to
the cord that held her precious flag. "Uod
bless you for this day," he said, and tears
coursed down the wrinkled features of the
octogenarian. The throng could not hear
the remark, but it cheered the meeting of
the city's executive and its gueat with re
As the enthusiasm created by Mayor
Harrison subsided a telegram was read
which had been clicking over the wire to
the stand. At exactly noon the same wire
bad flashed to Troy, N. Y., the order to
ring the Columbian Liberty Bell, and this
was the reply from the ollice of the Menee
ly Bell company:
"The Columbian Liberty Bell was sound
ed at the instant you closed the circuit at
noon of this grand Independence Bay, and
this ringing was followed by the playing
ot national and patriotic airs on the grand
chime made by us for St. Patrick's Cathe
dral, New York City. Thousands upon

THE VICE PRESIDENT'S SPEECH.
Hon. A. K. Stevenson Opens the formal
Vice President Stevenson was the first
speaker and spoke as the presiding officer
of the occasion. He said that no time or
place had bun an eyes ever beheld a
grander assemK age. This was America's
day. We had welcomed the nations of
the earth to the great exposition and had
given them very wisely ana properly a
day to celebrate, and now we remembered
the birth of our nation. "Today we do
honor to memory of the signers of the
Declaration of Independence.
Prophet as well as patriot, John Adams
exclaimed: 'We shall make this a glorious
and immortal df y. Our children will cele
brate it with 1 he roar of cannon, with
martial music, with songs of thanksgiving
and with shouts of joy.' All of this multi
plied a thousand fold our eyes now behold.
"One hundret. and seventeen years from
the hour this declaration was signed upon
the souther'; border of the great chain of
lakes, liiidivny between the oceans, a city
has sprung into life containing a popula
tion but little lew than that of the Amer
ican states at tho time the Declaration of
Independence w is proclaimed.
'"I am honored by being called to preside
this day over th s assemblage. It is not
mine, but the p irt of others to speak to
you. Lips more eloquent than mine will
tell something of the men who gave to the
American coloni s this charert of their lib
erties; somcthitu of the heroic struggle
which, commencing at Lexington, cul
minated at York town in the independence
of the colonies.
"I congratulate you, my countrymen,
upon this n lisp cions celebration of the
Fourth of July, upon the glories of the
past and upon what yet roil mi net li sure for
us and for our children. Self government
is no longer an experiment. It has safely
endured the cri cial test of more than 1nl
years of trial. Xo period of our history
has known a more steadfast determination
to maintain ami perpetuate the prieeh s
heritage ltpquet thed us by our fathers.
Our republic is: .

"We have vnte:vd utx.n the second cen
tury of our national life Cod grant that
we and those v ho succeed us may not
prove unworthy of those who have gone
before; that we t iny not prove unmindful
of the sublime lessons of the past. Then
may we rest ass: red that the bright sun
which ushers in vic-li succeeding annivers
nary of the Declaration of Independence
will look down upon a people who cele
brate this day w th hearts grateful to God,
that those who guarded and strengthened
were counted worthy to le named with
those who found 'd this government.''
The vice president was loudly cheered as
lie sat down and the programme was con
tinued until Mayor Harrison's name was
reached. And the soul-thrilling scene
narrated in the foregoing took place.
CARRIED THEM BACK TO 1876.
Rat the Demonstration of the Columbian
Year W:is "Out of Sight."
There were t housands of people in
the White City yesterday whose minds
went back to thut glorious Fourth of July
of the Centennial year in the Quaker City,
when commencing with the tolling of the
midnight hour the patriotic impulses of a
populace ran riot; when for more than
half a day men and women, old and young,
native and alien, marched almost without
a break up Chestnut street and saluted
with bared heads and ringing shouts the
old landmark of liberty in Independence
Square; when SLerman and Sheridan and
Dom Pedro, all row numbered with those
thot have gone, stood arm in arm liefore
the Old Liberty Bell and bowed their
heads in reverence and honor. Seventeen
years have elapsed since these stirring
scenes were enacted, and yesterday in the
metropolis of the. west the second World's
exposition of the republic gave occasion
for a still greater demonstration of love
of flag and count ry, one which in its mag
nitude and impressiveness kept pace with
the growth of tb-3 country in the interven
ing years, and w.th the magnitude of the
Columbian exposition as compared with
those that have gone before it.
Multitudes at I he Tark.
Every means of transportation to the
park was packed from 0 o'clock in the
morning. It is estimated that 500,0l
strangers were in the city during the day.
The number who paid their way into the
park is n"f-know n at this writing, but it
must have Ix-eti very large, and it over
flowed ttj whoh CX) acres, including the
Plaisauce. Only a port ion of those inside
could get within sight or hearing of the
ceremonies at t le grand stand and the
others sought enter.nininenf. clsewhere.and
found it. Many went to the Plaisauce and
wondered nt the unique sights seen t hi.

dancing girls, Dahomeyans and other races

Mrs. Stafford and Her I'reclous Flag.
Others visied - he state buildings, which
were hospitality open, while many others
put in their tine getting acquainted with
the innumerable products of human in
dustry and taste on exhibition in the great
buildings. But -he grand stand was the
center of interett and there were many
incidents of inteiest during the gathering
there of the people. While the guests
were being seated on the platform en
thusiasm was cteated by the appearance
of a venerable but sprightly woman from
Mcrtha's Vineyi rd, Mass., Mrs. Stafford,
who carried in a ard board box her precious
possession, the lirst American flag. She
kept it close to her as she smiled and bowed
her acknowledgments to the cheering mul
titude. She was given a seat, underneath
the small flagpo e erected for the purpose
of receiving the fag which was fastened to
the line ready for the hoisting by Mrs.
Stafford's infirm hand at the stoke of 12

the stars and stripes fluttering beneath.
In addition to the crowds that were
massed in front of the Terminial station
building to witness the ceremonies the
balconies .and roof of all the adjoining
buildings were black with people. They
clambered out upon ''the cornices of the
big structures 100 and I 200 feet from the
grounds, and many we're in imminent dan
ger of being pushed off on the heads of the
multitude below. The crush on the tops
of the buildings finally became so great
that guards were dispatched to J.he top of
each building and ordered the people away
from their perilous positions.
TRIED TO SMASH THE RUM POWER.
An Incident of the Afternoon Other Notes
of the Festival.
The Ilev. John T. James, of Aldio, Lou
don county, Va., made an attempt dur
ing the afternoon to smash the rum
power. Walking into the Agricultural
building at tue World's fair grounds the
reverend geutlcman came upon the hand
some whisky exhibit made by Sir John
Powers, of Dublin, Ireland. Suddenly he
raised a heavy hickory cane he was carry
ing and smashed away at the bottles ar
ranged in the form of the famous round
towers of Ireland. Three times he smote
the exhibit, bringing down about twenty
bottles and npilling the liquor on the floor
of the building. Then he was seized by
two guards and the club wrenched from his
hand. A patrol wagon was summoned and
the clergyman was given a ride to the pa
trol barn.where he admitted smashing the
exhibit. He was kept a prisoner while a
warrant was being secured and meanwhile
wrote out a long statement of "Why I
struck the whisky power," saying that it
was because Jehovah told him, and that
he did it on the Fourth of July as an ap
While the enthusiastic scenes were be
ing enacted in front, of the Terminal
station the Midway Plaisauce was packed
from end to end by a multitude of people
all endeavoring to get to the west end of

by a long procession of notables. Tl.e
great silk flag made by women throughout
the land and presented to the board of
lady managers was borne aloft in the pro

of people had poured in and out all day to
pay homage to the dec iratud lell. Ad
dresses were made, patriotic songs sung
and then the flag of I'aul Jones was taken
from Mrs, Stafford aijd drapeij over the
old bell, while the people applauded.
The fireworks were set off from floats
anchored in Lake Michigan just beyond
the perityle, and the masses congregated
in the grand plaza and on the lake front
east of Manufactures .building early in the
evening. Every bit of space was occupied
at dark, and by the time the display of fire
works began the thirty acres of ground in
the grand plaza and to the east of Manu
factures building was a dense moss of spec
tators. The fireworks, which included
thousands of rockets, bombs, floating stars,
various set pieces, and other notable de
vices, were magnificent.
There was continuous music on the
grounds from the time the ceremonies
were concluded until 10 o'clock at night.
It was made up of patriotic and popular
airs. The audiences at all times were
large and enthusiastic. Festival hall was
crowded to suffocation by over 7,000 peo
ple to listen to the music rendered by the
exposition orchestra, directed by Mr.
The paid attendance at the fair for the
day was 274,917.

FRIGHTFUL MINfc UWMicn.
Nearly 150 Men Penned In an English
Mine Many Dead.
Loxdon, July 5. Great excitement has
been caused inThornhill, Yorkshire, by an
explosion that occuired in Ingram's col
liery. One hundred and forty-live miners
are entomled, and it is feared that the loss
of life will e heavy. Hescuing parties are
hard at work recovering bodies. The pit
is badly blo"ked with fallen rock, dirt and
timlers, and the progress of the rescuing
parties is therefore slow. It is feared that
the men who escaped death in the explo
sion of fire ('amp have been suffocated by
the choke damp. The scenes usual at the
mouth in the ease of mining accidents are
being repeated in Thoruhill and are heart
rending. When the gas had cleared away the res
cuers began work. Many bodies have
been brought to the surface. Unremitting
efforts are lieing made to reach the few
miners who mav still be alive. Al)OUt 110
are supposed to have been killed. Themen
and boys missing number 14.". The dead
Ixidy of the under manager, badly burned,
was found in the mine near the shaft.
The cause of the explosion has not been
ascertained. There is no indication that
the explosion was exceptionally violent,
but the flames spread through the main
airwavswith extraordinary rapidity, and
produced an enormous amount of after
damp. With a view to shifting the fire
some of the passages were blocked with
wood and sand. The old unused seam in
which the fire appeared will be flooded.
