by tien. Harrison Today's Great l'arade
Starts on Its Twelve-Miles March En
Ixkiaxapoms, Sept. 5. Thanks to
queen's weather and su cessful carrying
out of the admirable arrangements per
fected by the local committees, the twenty-seventh
national encampment of the
Grand Army opened most auspiciously.
So far as the number of visitors from out
side points is concerned the success of the
encampment is already assured. Not all
of these, however, are veterans. In fact
the boys in bkae are almost lost in the
throngs. The hardy, hooppole yeomanry,
with their wives and children and other
relatives, near and remote, form a large
proportion of the arrivals. With a real
live national Grand Army encampment
within easy reaching distance, to keep
away from it would be worse than treason.
Not Vp to Expectations.
As to the veterans, the urrivals, outside
of the state posts, are Dot by any means
np to expectations. A good many states
send less than half the total that had been
scheduled a month ago as certain to be here,
while a few are likely to make even a
poorer showing. In the encampment
proper fully 100 delegates, if not more, will
fail to answer to the roll-call. Hard times
and the continued stringency of the money
maiket, especially in the far western
states, is the ascribable cause. But the
crowds are here and even if there are a
quartette of civilians to every veteran, In
dianapolis is just as well contented and
Harrison IH-dicateg a Camp.
Almost on the very spot in military
park where thirty-one years ago the citi
zens presented to Colonel Harrison and his
newly organized Seventieth regiment of
volunteers the standards of Indiana and
the United States to carry before them to
the war, the ex-president dedicated "Camp
Wilder," the name bestowed upon some
three hundred tents in which reunions of
regiments and -old soldiers' societies will
be in full blast for the remainder of the
week. About :-.,(KK) people participated in
the exercises, which included addresses by
W. A. Ketcham, General John T. Wilder
(for whom the camp is named), and Gen
eral llairisou; patriotic music by the band
and the raising of the stars and stripes to
the top of a towering pole.
The Kx-rresiileut's Speech.
Wheu the ex-president was introduced
he was greeted with a volley of cueers that
was thrice repeated. lie apologized to
his fellow citizens for having remained so
long at the seashore, while they were
wovkiug hard for the success of the en
campment; admitted that he felt in some
degree "a shirk;" indulged in some inter
esting reminiscences regarding tie park
and surrounding neighborhood in the days
of the war, and eulogized the bravery and
devotion to country of the Indiana troops.
"No Indiana soldier, "said the ex-president,
"need be ashamed to open to tie world in
friendly competition with the records of
the sister states the story of Indiana's part
in the great rebellion. But the beauty of
it all was that these regiments from Indi
ana and these from Illinois and these from
Ohio were all one.
All Helonged to Uncle Sam."
''They were not Indiana's soldiers,
Ohio's nor Illinois' soldiers, but soldiers of
the United States. The cause was one,
the glory is one; and, visiting comrades
from other states, we are not here to exalt
ourselves, but to take your hands as com
rades and share with you the glory of the
greatest result that was ever achieved by
war in human history. If there is any
man anywhere who does sot honor the
union veteran he does not live in Indian
apolis, If there is any man anywhere who
suspects him or would detract in the
smallest degree from the merits of his
service, he is not heie to-day. You will
not meet him on our streets.
The Lessou of the Kuctmpment,
"My comrades, those tents about us are
pitched many clays march nearer home
than those in which you dwelt here in
1S61. They will stand but for a day and
vanish. You go to your own homes, to
the bhelter of those roof trees and to the
companionship of those families from
which you separated yourself in times of
war and to which you returned with an
increased love and consecration. You
will go back to pick up the duties of your
citizenship with a higher sense of these
duties, of the glory and sweetness of this
llag, than you had before you came here to
miugle with these comrades, to listen to
these stirring songs, and to stir each other
by the remembrances of those bloody
MARCHED TO THE UNION'S MUSIC. '
The Great l'arade Kvent of the Meeting
With a reception at Tomlinson hail to
the officers and delegates to the encamp
ment, given by the citizens of Indianap
olis, the first day closed. Music was fur
nished by the largest orchestra ever or
ganized in this city, under the direction of
W. A. Zuniple. TheJ hall was crowded
with representative men of the city and
delegates to the encampment and it was
an enjoyable and brilliant "function,"
But the rank and file of the vets were
waiting for today,when they would get a
reception from the crowds of people now
at the state capital that would make the
grizzled old vets feel young again.
It was a busy morning that the sun ush
ered in this morning was. By 7 o'clock
the hurry of preparations was observed,
and by 8 there were bodies of boys in blue
moving from all directions to their ren
dezvous. With steady tramp the marches
were kept up until 11a.m., by which
time everything was in readiness and the
signal was given to march. With steady
swing the veterans wheeled into their
positions with precision that showed
that the military lessons of '61-65 had not
: forgotten. Chief Marshal Carnahao
headed the line, a platoon ot pofic-e going
lnirontoi mm to Keep the way clear.
With the chief marshal was a staff num
bering about seventy-five. The staff
formed line at 10 o'clock in North Merid
ian street, the left resting on Seventh
street extending south, to receive the commander-in-chief.
and staff formed on North Deleware 6treet,
right resting at Seveath street, and at 10:3(
moved to Meridian, then south to ihr
right of the chief marshal and formed in
line on the right. Then the chief marshal
and staff, representing the city of Indiana
polis as the escort, took the advance, pro
ceedediug ever the line of march. When
he reached the destination, he returned
with a part of his staff to the headquarters.
Seventh and Meridian, and directed the
movements of the column.
While the veterans had been gathering
the people had not been idle. The citizens
of Indianapolis seemed to be all there,
while the tens of thousands of visitors not
members of the G. A. K. helped to pack
the sidewalks and roadway as far out as
permitted, the balconies and windows, the
porches aud steps, the roofs, and even the
trees were full about to the danger point
of young men and boys. A great cheer at
the point of departure announced that the
parade had begun, and it was taken up as
the head of the column appeared, advan
cing along the line until the whole body of
spectators was cheering. '
"Tramp, tramp, tramp," the boys were
marching, and many in the throng re
membered with swelling hearts how many
of the boys had, in the times that tried
men's souls in '01, marched through the
streets of this city en route to battle for
the union. There was no "shirking"
among those who had commanded ia 1801;
only those too old entirely to march took
carriages. General Lew Wallace was ob
served tramping along with his post, and as
he and others were seen the crowd cheered
again. Among the prominent veterans
who were in the line of march accompany
ing their departments were David S. Stan
ley, on the retired list of U. S. A.; Senator
Manderson, of Nebraska; General Louis
Wagner, of Philndalphia; General George
Merrill, of Boston; Major-General J. J.
Reynolds and Colonel B. D. Wheeler, U. S.
A.; and General Wilder, of Tennessee.
The line of march is twelve miles long
and it will be well on in the afternoon be
fore the parade will be over. There is
music galore. About 100 bands, large
and small, drum corps and full military
bands, are in line, and at this writing the
procession is w ending its way in platoons
along the route laid down for it, while
Indianapolis is one mighty cheer. The
city never saw such a turnout of residents
aud visitors. Everywhere the breeze
flutters the colors of the ensign and plays
with the festoon and canopy of red, white
and blue. How many are in line it is im
possible to say now. It may be that there
are fewer than was expected, but it is a
big thing anyhow.
GOSSIP OF THE ENCAMPMENT.
Plenty or Candidates for the Chief Com
mand Farnham Post.
Now that a gcKjdly proportion of the
men who make and unmake the rulers of
the organization are on the ground the
woods are full of available candidates for
the office of commander-in-chief. The list
comprises General S. H. Hurst, Ohio; Cap
tain J. G. B. Adams, Massachusetts; Gen
eral E. Burd Grubb, New Jersey; Edgar
Allen, Virginia; Charles P. Lincoln.Wash
innton; James A. Sexton, Chicago; Editor
I. F. Mack, Sandusky, O., and Charles M.
Travis, Indiana. Hurst, who appeared
yesterday to be leading, has encountered
opposition from his own state. Adams
and Lincoln are prime favorites, while the
support of the others is confined to their
own states. Adams' friends are sanguine
of his success. Pittsburg and Philadel
phia have entered the lists against Lin
coln, Neb., for the honor of having the
It is probable that the encampment will
endorse the action of Commander Weissert
in suspending Farnham post, of New York,
for its action in adopting and circulating
resolutions approving the pension policy
of the present national administration.
The question will be referred to in the
commander's report, and a resolution of
approval has already been drafted by a
Philsdelphia delegate. Report has it that
representatives of the suspended post are
in the city for the purpose of protesting
against the summary treatment it has ex
perienced, but efforts to locate them were
not successful: The New York delegates
say that the effort would be useless.
At the session of the conventioa of naval
veterans Admiral Osborn announced that
he had received a letter from ex-Paymaster
Fortier, of Buffalo, who has been re
moved from office on account of a short
ags in his accounts, in which he expressed
his ablity of proving up a clean record by
explaining where the money had gone.
There was a sharp contest for the position
of rear admiral commanding, and Osborn,
the present incumbent, was finally chosen
by a vote of 33 to 27 over Francis B. Al
len, of Hartford, Conn., the present com
modore. At the reception to the G. A. R. dele
gates and officers last evening General
Harrison delivered an approp:iate address
of welcome and Commander vVeissert re
sponded. There was a dancing programme
of twelve numbers to wind up the festivi
ties. During the evening General Harri
son attended a reunion of comrades of the
Army of the Cumberland. The Ohio dele
gates, at a meeting held at the Bates
House shortly after their arrival, adopted
resolutions declaring that those opposing
the candidacy of Major Hurst were not
authorized to speak for the delegation and
represented nobody but themselves, and
pledging united support to the comrade.
