Encampment Week Indiana's Capital
City Puts on a Red, White and Bine
Iress General Harrison Arrives.
Ixdianapouis, Sept. 2. The encamp
ment is upon us and the capacity of Indi
anapolis to take care of people is begin
ning to be tested. From all points of the
compass the railways are bringing the
veterans and the dominating color on all
the streets is blue already. This is at the
level of the ground. Aloft the city is a
rainbow. The red, white and blue hangs
in festoons along the hou&u fronts, pre-
nts itself mat-Bed in stands of "Old
G!ory," and in patriotic designs, and flut
ter lrom every staff in the city; windows
a-e draped with it, porticoes wreathed in
i , and in fact it is everywhere. Especial
ly are the national colors abundant on the
business streets and along the lines of the
parades today and next week.
Kearsargre Ahoy! There, Ahoy!
Jack was the man who opened the en
tertainment. A model of the Kearsarge
had been built for the "jolly tar" to take
charge of and it was "launched" at Wash
ington and Tennessee Blreets Thursday
night, where a large crowd assembled to
see the ceremony. The model is 150 feet
long and fitted up inside and rigged out
side all shipshape. She has quarters for
tke crew and officers and a good share of
provisions on board and this morning her
crew took possession of her early that is
efeht bells, or 8 o'clock. Admiral Osborn
had arrived, and with due nautical cere
mony, which is not long-winded, she was
ptit in commission.
Jack Wants Everything; Shipshape.
One of the difficulties this fnr from the
sea coast was to construct this model as it
should be; but that was overcome. An
other was the desire of landsmen in
authority to do something in the way of
decoration not permitted by navy regula
tions, liere are a few old talts living here
rtd the freaks of these landsmen came in
f A a good deal of chaffing from the said
"alts." For instance, as soon as there
was a place to hang it a burgee was floated
on the ship bearing trie name "Kearsarge."
"Now, what landlubber did that?" said
the salts. For a ship never flies her name.
She signals it. Tha an admiral's flng was
pnt up. But this was worse. For the ad
Wnl's flag is iiever floated except when
thadmiral is aboard.
Kaval Veterans Parade.
This morning, however, the flag was run
upon the mainmast and the liu'llj flag
on the tore. Admiral Osborn w is on hand
to-Zsee it done. When the ship had been
pnfc in commission the veterans of the
navy assembled for the initial parade of
the encampment. At 9:3C a, m. the men
were all in position and at the gun fire the
parade begun. The column formed on
North Meridan street, beyond St. Clair.
The route of the procession was nearly two
miles in length. It extended south on
Meridan street to East New York street,
-e;Bt to New Jersey, south to East Wash
ington street, west to the reviewing stand
beside the court house and the flagship
Kearbage. Here stood the admiral and
the national officers; he and his staff re
viewed the battaliouB. as they passed the
ship. The associations disbanded after
they had passed the admiral's station. It
whs an inspiring scene. The streets were
lined with people and the veterans were
cheered heartily as with measured step to
the music of the Union tbey marched
Proceedings This Afternoon and Tomorrow
This afternoon the annual reception
takes place on board the Kearsarge. Among
the famous veterans ho will attend is
Commander William Simmons, of the
Farragut association of Philadelphia.
Ha made nanw and fame for himself in
the warship Brooklyn, in the defense of
Fort, Pickens, the blockade of Mobile, at
Torts Jackson and St. Philip, and at New
Orleans. The regular "watches" aboard
hip began this morning and will con
tinue at the rate of five a day throughout
the entire encampment week. Tomorrow
the Naval association will attend church
in a body.
Gen, Harrison Arrives.
Ex-President Harrison and his private
secretary, Mr. Tibbetts, have arrived home
from the east. The trip was a very pleas
ant, and when the ex-president stepped off
the sleeper he was looking in the best of
health. There was a large crowd of naval
veterans at the station when he arrived
and he shook a good many hands before
he reached his family carriage which was
waiting for him. General Harrison will
deliver the welcoming addaess to the vet
erans at Tomlinson hall Monday evening,
and will preside at the reunion of his old
THE ASSOCIATION OF VETERANS.
Its Organizatian and Objects and Other
Facta of Interest.
The National Association of Naval Vet
erans was organized by delegates from the
various associations of naval veterans
throughout the Union at a meeting held
In New York in January, 1887. There are
twenty-six local associations working un
der the national charter, a paid member
ship of over 5,000, and about 8,000 con
tributing members. The object of the
national association, as declared by the
constitution, is "to cherish the memory
and associations of the war of the late re
bellion, perpetuate the glorious name and
deeds of our navy, to strengthen the ties
of fraternal fellowship and sympathy, to
advance the best interests of this associa
tion, and to extend all possible relief to the
widows and orphans of members, to foster
the cultivation of naval science, to encour
age the building of an efficient navy and
natidhal defences, to culrce Unqualified
allegiancoto the general government, to
protect the rights and liberties of Ameri
can citizenship, a:id to n,ain:ain national
honor, dignity, union and independence."
The crest soldiers' monument on Mnn-
bmentsqaare win be on or the many
attractions to the visitors. Miss Indiana,
in bronze, has been elevated to the top, a
distance of D00 feet. The scaffolding has
been removed from about her, and she is
ready to greet the old soldiers from every
quarter.' Decorations on Monument
fequareare complete and beautiful. Mas
sive columns have been placed at regular
distances around the entire circle. These
are covered w'.th vari-colored buntingand
Hags, and each column represents an
army corps. The shaft is covered with
electric lights and a search light has been
placed on top of the crowning figure.
The grand stand at the east end of tbe
court-house square is of Corinthian design,
having a flat roof with six columns sup
porting it, surmounted by Corinthian cap
itals. The front is broken by a semi-circular
projection, whose canopy is sup
ported by two of the six columns. On top
at the center is a large gilt eagle with ex
tended wings, measuring six feet from tip
to tip. At either end floats the national
flag. The columns are covered with bunt
ing, and the spaces not filled by the dates
1801 and 1C5 on either side of the circular
projection at the top are hidden by shir
rings of bunting. Various insignia of the
Grand Army embellish the structure. On
one side of the stand is constructed the
reviewing stations for the distinguished
guests and for state, city and county offi
cers, and on the other side about 1,000 seats
are provided for the general public at
Thousands of veterans have arrived and
the question of who shall be the next commander-in-chief
is the one that attracts
most attention. Adams of Massachusetts
and Hurst of Ohio are thus far most
talked of locally for commander-in-chief.
Other candidates, however, are expected to
enter the race. It is also said by many of
the advance forces that a good portion of
the business and executive meetings will
be given over to the discussion of the
much agitated pension question.
AN ISSUE OF VERACITY
Between Judges Goggin and Brentano In
the Sunday-Closing Case.
Chicago, Sept. 2. The Sunday-closing
sensation has developed into an issue of
veracity between Judges Goggin and
Brentano and the case is a good deal
mixed. Goggin says that he acted as he
did and he admits that his action waa
"mean and arbitrary" to defeat Judge
Brentano, who had most unexpectedly
changed his opinion and gone back on his
agreement. This agreement, Goggin says,
was that Brentano and he were at one on
the Sunday-opening question, both decid
ing that the fair must stay open, while
It was not until the day before the case
was decided that Brentano informed Gog
gin of his change of opinion, and then
Goggin determined to win the case for
his own sie'e. Brentano says that Gog
gin's interpretation of what passed be
tween them is all wrong. He (Brentano)
was personally in favor of an open Sunday,
but told Goggin that if he could show him
the law that would justify it he (Brentano)
would join Goggin in an opinion sustain
ing the Injunction. Goggin said he would
write an opinion that Brentano could sign,
but up to the day before the court met to
decide the case ne had not done this.
Brentano then tola Goggin that he should
join Dunne in the opinion for Sunday clos
ing. He believed the law was on that side
Meantime rumors are afloat that Judge
Goggin had looked too frequently on the
wine when it was red, which charge the
judge emphatically denies. He says he
has the World's fair in such a position that
the gates must be kept open and that is
what he was after: also that the fair direc
tory cannot get a judge to review bis ac
tion. CHOLERA AT JERSEY CITY.
One Death Declared to Be a Real Case
of the Asiatic.
Jkksey Citt, Sept. 2. A man named
Crowe, who waa without any permanent
home, had been working in Jersey City
and died on Aug. 80. He had been in the
hospital only two days when he died. The
case excited suspicion and the New York
experts were called. The result was that
Dr. Briggs, chief inspector of pathology,
found the spirillum of cholera in the ma
terial furnished by Dr. Doty. Dr. Jenkins
was notified and with Dr. Edsoa went to
Jersey City. They went with tbe inten
tion of tracing the origin of the disease.
After working all night on the case Dr.
Jenkins and Dr. Edson said that they were
unable to account for the manner in which
Crowe contracted cholera.
A emergency hospital large enough to
accommodate 100 patients has been estab
lished a mile out on the "Meadows." Dr.
George Keeler and Mrs. Jane Ferrol, a
trained nurse, are in charge. A patient
has already been received there. He is Al
bert McPharland, tinsmith, 25 years old,
who lives at 223 Slater street, Patterson.
He came here to look for work and was
found sick in the street and waa hustled
off to the emergency hospital as a suspect.
Later Dr. Keeier concluded it was beer,
and net cholera, and McPharland will be

The house then adjourned. Immediate
ly after the sitting of the house of lords

Attempt at Memphis to Burn a Lot of
I- and X. Freight Cars.
Memphis, Tenn.. Sept. 2. The first act
of violence on the part of the strikers on
the Louisville and Nashville road occurred
here. Several freight cars in different
parts of the yards were fired by incen
diaries simultaneously and had it not been
for the prompt action of the fire depart
ment several large warehouses filled with
freight and cotton would have been
burned, thereby destroying millions of
dollars worth of property. This outrage
by the strikers created great excitement.
If a second attempt is made the culprit
will be surely lynched if they are caught.
