LAtlanta Journal, ebruary :.]
Grover Cleveland w: s in Atlanta to
day and ne%er before was Itere such a
recept-i.Qn given to a leader of i he people.
There was n4preparat-on. no time to
get up ban, of music and flags and
banners, not ejven time to notify ail the
people of his co.4ning.
But when the strain rolled into the
depot fully ten thcusand people surged
about the car in w,bich Mr. Cleveland
was travelling. ThL. blowing of locc
motive whistles and (the ringing of bells
announced the approa--ch of the traiv.

There wre already i ve thousand

Whe sident Grover Cleveland
visited Atlanta in k87 the people gave
him a grand ovation. .The reception
to-day was no less granv. Uppn his
first visit the people paid homage to
t he Democratic President-of the United
States; to-day they honored him as a
Democratic leader, and a man whom
the Democrats of the country can still
admire and trust.
Wben the train stooped in the Union
depot there arose its for "Grover
Cleveland," an<. .aen he appeared
upon the front platform of the sleeper
the people just fairly went wild. If he
had been a king the ovation could not
have been greater.
GOVERNOR NORTH EN SPEAKS.
Immediately in front of Mr. Cleve
land stood Governor Northen. When
the crowd became quiet Governor

countrymen, to present to you Ex

SHAKING HANDS WITH THE 'EOPLE.
As soon as Governor Northen con
eluded his remarks Mr. Cleveland took
a position upon the lower step of the
coach, where all could see hini, and
held out his band.
In an instant there were a thousand
hands held up to grasp the hand of the
champion of tariff reform. Of course
all could not shake ands at once, and
there was a rush and a push for the
One of the first to give Mr. Cleveland
a hearty handshake was Judge George
Hillyer. Judge Marshall J. Clarke
was not far behind. The most promi

were ':iere and they were going to

-or no crowd.
INCIDENTS OF THE GREETING;.
A little child's hand went up, and to
prevent the child from b~eng mashed
in the crowd, Mr. Cleveland caught
the little fellow up in his arms and
a passed him through the coach.
One old man held up both hands and
cried out: God bless you, sir; "give mue
both of your hands at once!"

thusiastic Democrat, and the iron roof
of the depot fairly rattled when three

A gen:leman pushed forward through
the crowd and presented Mr. C'leve

and exclaimed: "Take this to Baby

YVERYBRODY WANTED TO SEE HIM.
The crowd kept growing larger and
larger, and by thbe time Mr. Cleveland
had been shaking hands ten minutes
the Union depot was packed f.mi en e
end to the other.
Everybody wanted to see him, if
thiey couln't get naur enough to shake
with him. They climbed upon the
tops of trains ini thbe depot, :nd soon
every available site was takeni up.
Mr. Cleveland looked around upon
the great concourse of people; and he
espied a little girl in her father's arms
waving her handkerchief.
It must have made him think of
Baby Ruth. He took~ otT his hat and
bowed to the little girl, while there
was just a suspIcion of tears in his
TH E TRA N MOVED.
- In order to give every body a chanice
tsee Mr.. Cleveland the coach was
moved out of the depot and across to
Whitehall street. Mr. Cleveland stood
upon the platform of the coach, and as
Fhe passed the thousands of upturned
faces shout after shout wentup.
F The Kimball IIouse wicdowvs and a
S1large line of carriages in Wall street
were filled with ladies who waved
itheir handkerchiefs. From Whitehall
?to Pry~or street there was scarcely
standing room fur the people.
The coach moved back into the
depot, and the crowd becamie greater
"Speech'!" "speech:" came from a
thousand voices. "Say just a word or
two to us." "We must have a speech."
And Mr. Cleveland had to speak.
With a wave of his hand the great
crowd became quiet, and Mr. Cleve
"GeemI lenien, I have reftued your

FOR OUR NEXT PRESIDENT.
Some one in the dense crowd then
yeled "Th-ee cheers for our next Presi
dent," and the yells that followed
startied even the gentleman ;eferred
Thou some one in the crowd yelled
"Three cheers for Baby Ruth," and if
Baby Ruth could have heard them she
would have held up her tiny chubby
bands and crowed for joy, for they were
given wit'-:n lume and a will that
shook the very rafters in the old ear
After shaking hands with a few more
Mr. Cleveland descended from the car
steps aid stood talking to Governor
- GOJEANOR NORTHEN'S NEPHEW.
"I have a nephew namevd 'Grover,"
remarked the Governor, and Mr. Cleve
land smiled and thanked him.
It was suggested that Mr. Cleveland
go to the rear platform of the train.
where the crowd could approach him
to shake hands without fear of passinrg
trains. As he reached the platform a
gentleman walked up and said:
"Mr. Cleveland, I have shaken your
band once, but let me shake it again."
"Then you are a repeater," was the
remark of our Ex-President as he firm
ly grasped the gentleman's hand and
gave it a hearty shake.
"Don't listen to the Constitution!"
said one, as he shook Mr. Cleveland's
"Hill's boom is dead," said another.
"Hurrah for the Journal!" said some
" Cleveland ninety-two!" yelled a
gentleman w)ose beaver had been
crushed in the crowd.
"Come back again, and come often,"
was the cordial invitation of many who
approached the rear end of the car.
"Take this kiss to Ruth,'' said a
gentleman, as he wafted a kiss from
the tips of his fingers.
"Yes, kiss her for me, t3o," said doz
ens of men in the crowd.
"Hey, Gro.'ey," said a very small
boy as he gravely shook the Ex-Presi
At a quarter to 1 o'clock the t.rain

While the crowvd was pressing and

glimpse of MIr. Cleveland, and, if possi
ble, to shake his hand, it was interest

the enthusiastic Democrats.

withholding information from other

Diaster Last Fall.
ATLANTA, (a. Ja.tary 1.-A negrr
teanister named Boydl has been arrested
aln! h:s confessed that he caused the
acident on the Western North Caro
linla (ivision of the Richmond and
Danville Railroad last September, in
which twenty persons were ki!led and
many others hurt.
The railroad offered $10,004 reward
for the capture of the train wrecker.
Detective H.oney went to work and
learned that Boyd had left a package
containing $1,010 and valuable jewelry
with a man at Statesville. With the
aid of this man Byd was led to con
fess his crime and the confession was
repeated before several others. Then
Superintendent McBee was let into the
case, and caused Boyd's arresL on the
charge of cattle stealing, the belief
being that others were implicatcd.
IBoyd says his lloLtive was the rob
bery of passengers and that while en
gaged in rescuing the dead bodies he
stripped them of valuables. He de
liberately selected a train which he
knew would have a good list of pas
sengers departing from the North Caro
lina resorts, peple who would have
money, und about half an hour before
the train was due pulled the spikes of
a couple of rails leading on to the Bos
ton's bridge. He watched the crash
and in the confusion of people rushing
to the rescue of the victims took his
place among them.
Superintendent McBee has in his
poesession the implements with which
Boyd drew the spikes, having found
them where Boyd declared they were
"Soldier and Civiltan."
Our contemporary, the Charleston
Sun, stood for Tillman and his move
mieut just as long as decency would al
low, but of late there has been a drop
ping of scales as it were, and the Sun
is now showing one some of the rugged
pots of the reformer's (?) nature.
The Sun of Saturday says:
"The correspondence between Cap
tain E. A. Garlington, of the regular
army, and Governor Tillman, which
has so unnecessarily been given the
press, exhibits the Governor in his
Captain Garlington-wbo is an ap
proved and gallant Caroliuian in the
regular service, having been wounded
in the Wounded Knee battle at which
Wallace, .o1other Carolinian, was
killed ia ;ear-wrote the Governor a
proper and dignified application to be
commissioned as a Colonel from his
native State in the active service, in
the event of war with Chili, which, at
the date of the letter, January 24, was
believed by every one to be highly
The act of Captain Garlington was
in every wvay right and proper, and ex
hibited a due and proper respect for
the civil hleadl of the military of the
State from which he is accredited.
The rapid development of evcnts,
however, pu. in the way of the
Governor. wvho is as fond of ridicul
ing others as he is sensitive to the lash
ing of satire himself, to say a smart
thing at the exp)ense of his position and
dignity, and theni give the correspon
dence for publication. His persiflage
with' regard to the gallant captain
"snufling the battle afar," and "de
siring a place in the pietuire as a comn
maider of South Carolina troops" is
entirely uncalled for, and does niot
exhibit the commiander-in-ebief of
Soutly Carolina troops favorably as
compared with the tone of the profes
sionial soldier's letter.

Alli.-ice President Polk Talks About 'resi
[Special to Augusta Chronicle.]
WN'As1IN(-Tox, Feb. 1.-Last Friday
President Polk, of the National Alli
ance organization, and Dr. Macune,
the editor of the national organ, carded
Mr. Livingston into the House lobby
and a long and somewhat animated
talk occurred between the three. Polk
and Macune both looked grave and Col.
Leonidas looked restive and ill at ease.
What they talked about no one could
know but themselves, but the Alliance
national president and the National
Alliance editor seemed to be very much
in earnest., if their wealth of jestures
and looks could be regarded as an indi
WHAT 'OLK SAYS.
Subsequently Col. Polk was cornered,
and he is one of the easiest men in the
world to interview. He has absolutely
no secrets and don't seei to care who
knows what he is driving at:
"Do I regard a Third party move
ment as probable?" he responded. "Of
course. Why not? Why its bound to
come. We will meet at St. Louis on
Feb. 29, and all the working orders
will merge with us, and with a good
platform we will be irresistible in No
"No " he continued, "of course there
can be no nominations at St. Louis,
but we can have a big ratification meet
ing, and a national convention is bound
to follow. And we will get there, he
added, with a quick upward jerk of his
"What do I think of Livingston?"
"Well, we have him on probationjust
now-he and his friends, and we shall
keep an eye on them hereafter. Living
ston will go to the bottom like a ship,
if the order ceases to hold him up. You
can say that I said that, and I mean it.
If he thinks the Atlanta Constitution
and the regular Democracy of his dis
trict are going to bolster him up just
because he voted for Crisp for Speaker,
and is skirmishing around with the
Democratic caucus meetings, he is in
grave error. They will dump him like
a load of old tins."
ANOTRER ALLIANCE CAUCUS WHICH
SIMPSON & CO., DID NOT ATTEND
WASHINGTON, Feb. 4.-Another al
liance caucus was held last night. All
friends of financial reform were invited.
Its object was to discuss measures for
the relief of the people.
Pickier, republican, of South Dakota,
was there. Johnstone, of South Caro
lina, and Pierce, of Tenuessee, both
lawyers, were there. Long, of Texas, a
grangei and farmer, but not an alliance
man, was there. Ralph Beaumont, the
big knights of labor orator, was an in
terested spectator. McKeegan, indepen
dent, of Nebraska, was chairman of the
Trhere was no earthly reason why
any friend of financial reform should
not have attended, yet McKeegan was
the only one of the nine third party
(aucds men who was present.
The refusal of Watson, Simpson &
Co. to attend a conference of this char
acter could easily be construed to mean
that they are not friends of financial
reform. Their action certainly does
say, with greater emphasis than words
can voice, that if they cannot enact
their measures through the third party
they wvon't have them at all.
Democrats who attended this con
ferene comment on the fact that since
the rabid third partyites withdrew
their deliberations have been conducted
with perfect harmony.

IN DEENCE OF HIS FATHER.
EIitor C izales Subnits a Statement to
the I'ublic-In-cital of an Honorable
Career in the Service of Two
To the Editor of the Daily News.
Several days ago I received a dispatch,
from Spartanburg advising me that C.
P. Barrett disclaimed the authorship of
an article in the Mountain City Echo,
of your city. I n.iturally sought a copy
of the paper referred to, and found the
article to be a v cious personal attack
upon me and members of my family,
presumably written by R. F. Perry,
who had, as I have since learned, pre
pared something of the sort before lea-v
I would not notice this article in any
way if it had been confined to abuse of
my brothers and myself. We are na
tives of South Carolina, descendants in
one line-of the first settlers of the State,
and are too well known to be injured
by such attacks, even if Mr. Perry were
not by this time so well known that he
can injure nobody. My father, however,
is not so well known to the younger
gen-ration. He is an old man, and
although now a resident of this city,
he has been absent from the State for
many years since the war. He is de
scribed in the article referred to as "a
Spanish adventurer." Lest this should
pass a3 argument with those hostile to
the political cause I represent, although
without force or pertinence, I submit a
few-facts in regard to him.
Heis. in the first pia2e, notaSpaniard.
He is a native of Matanzas, Cuba, the
son of a professor and newspaper owner
and editor-a gentleman, and the de
seen dait of gentle people. No name on
the island stands highr. He was edu
cated in this country, and was a law
graduate of the University of Havana.
Associated with a band of patriots, who
had determined to attempt the libera
tion of Cuba from Spanisbrule, he was
chosen to represent that cause in the
United States, and came here on a mis
sion to enlist the services of General
Worth and engage and arm forces from
the veterans of the Mexican war, then
just closed. He was a member of the
junta of five who, in New York, in
1849, organized th-3 contest for Cuban
independence, adopted a flag, issued
bonds and formed the executive au
thority of the revolutionists. For this
he was condemned to death by the
Spanish government, but in 1849, as
adjutant, general of Gen. Narciso
Lopez-who, on account of his know
ledge of the country and the language,
c>mmitted the wcrk to him-he or
ganized the first "Lopez expedition,"
which landed at Cardenas. He was
second in comr;and of that expedition,
and its director, for the reason stated
until it landed. In thecapture of Car
denas he was the Irst Cuban to shed
his blood for the freedom >t his native
land. Had success resulted, Cuba would
have been a Southern State of this
Union, and the met wvho liberated her
from despotism wold have had the
honors of Garibaldi. He later organ
ized another expedition in this State
and Georgia in conj inction with Lopez
and Crittenden. Having been deceived
by reports of a successful revolution in
Cuba, they sailed from New Orleans
hastily, without effecting a junction
with him, and met their death.
He was chosen by his own country
men their envoy and their leader,
which is suflicient evidence of his posi
tion in his native land.
In 1849 he became an American citi
zen. Before the fall of Sumter in 1S61,
he had~ volunteered in the service of
South Carolina and the South, and
served throughout the war, surrender
ing with Johnston's army at Greens
boro', N. C. He wvas successively in
specter general on Beauregard's staff,
inspector general of South Carolina,
chief of artillery for the department of
South Carolina, Getergia and Florida
under Beau regard, Jones, Pemberton
and Hardee, and acting chief of artille
ry in Johnston's army.
As to his standing in the South, he
was urged before the war for the Chilean
or other South American or Central
American mission,. by senators and
representatives from nine southern

GOLD! GOLD! GOLD!
Veins or Much Richness in Greenville and
WILLiE, S. C., Feb. 2.-For some time
a rumor concerning certain important
discoveries of goll in Greenville and
Spartanburg Counties has been whis
pered about quietly. When the Wolfe
and Tyger mining company was organ
ized recently in Spartanburg it was sug
gested that that incident would be soon
followed by important developments.
Such is the case. This company,
which is composed of L. W. Jordan, ol
Seneca, D. A. P. Jordan, of Greenwood,
and the Messrs. Sullivan, of Anderson,
have discovered veins of ore bere which
surpass the wildest dreams of gold
seekers. They have spent many thous
and dollars in developing the property,
and before the schemes they have al
ready inaugurated have been perfected
they will invest many thousand more.
So far they have traced and located by
sinking shafts to the water level twelve
veins of ore which assay in New Yorb
as high as 6387 per ton. One of these
veins have been traced fully two miles,
the ore yielding handsome result
throughout. The company has buill
and is now operating an improved ter
stamp mill; and only lacks water before
others are to be set in position.
George Ladshaw, of Spartanburg, it
now on the ground making the neces
sary surveys to bring a large stream o:
water to the summit of a hill whict
commands the whole gold belt, and ir
a few days a large force of workmer
will be engaged in constructing the re
quired canal. The gold yielding bel
extends for about four or five miles-ai
least, that is as far as it has been tracei
at present. In this district, prospector:
have located and staked off some threu
hundred acres of gravel which pan:
truly enormous quantities of gold. Thb
compa.u;-s operations are being pushe<
with great rapidity, and there wil
shortly be some startling development;

Their Unique Plan for Promot'ng the Sub~
WVASIUNG ToN, January '29.-Allianc
members of the House of Representa
tives have had another conference, a
whbich all were present except Messre
Simpson and Otis of Kansas and WVat
son of Georgia. A number of Allianc
measures were discussed, and one c
two bills that are being prepared wer
read and considered, one of which wi]
be introduced within a day or two.
The members :'g.ed fully upon thei
plan of action in this Congress, andi
is certainly a most unique one. The;
will introduce a flood of bills, putting
on the free list pretty much every
thing that the farmecr consumes. Thei
endeavor is to urge the passage or suec
bills as w ill decrease the revenues an,
insure a deficit.
A deficit having been created,
would be necessary in some -':ay t

[From the Industrial World.]
A moter is running at the Pater

tion. Perpetual motion is said to exit
in a machine that 'when once starte
will continue until worn out.' Th
machine operates by the power give
out in diff'erent exp)ansion of meta
under varying conditions, and is
small and carefully constructed that,
there was absolutely no change in t,en
perature of the room it would run whe

stopping. If it were possi'le to put
in some lace for this length of time,
the center of the earth, where the ten

of perpetual motion: but that cann
be done where the machine now is,

THE LOTTERY SURRENDERs.
A Happy EndInf to the Srfe in Louisiana
John A. Morris, the Lottery King
Withdraws fromu 1:he Contest.
EW ORLEANS, February 3.-A card
is made public fron, John A. Morris,
addressed to the people of Louisiana, in
which Morris, concerning the efforts to
obtain a- extension of the charter of
the Lou.3ana Lottery, says:
Realizing thoroughly, my associates
and , that we have been incorrect in
our opinion of the public sentiment on
this question of a new charter, and not
desiring to see the people of the State of
Louisiana involved in strife over this
question, I hereby declare, upon my
part and the part of my associates, that
we would not accept or qualify under
the amendmjent (lottery amendment to
the Constitution) even were it to be
adopt*d by the people at the general
election of April next. As theSupreme
Court of the United States has decided
the anti-lottery postal law to be consti
tutional it is my purpose and that of
my associates to respect that law and
abstain from violating it in any man
ner. Our offer was prompted as much
by desire to benefit the people of Louis
iana as by tho prospect. of profit to our
selves from the grant-as a buisiness
proposition. My associates and I are
closely identified with the interests of
the people of Louisiana, as we own
much property within the borders of
the State. Convinced that the grant
ing of another lottery charter in the
State would be the cause of continued
agitation and discontent upon the part
of a number of citizens of Louisiana for
the entire period for which the charter
might be granted, we would be unwil
ling to accept such charter, even though
it was given to us without the payment
of one dollar of license tax.

A LAND OF PLENTY.
A Noted Prelate on Our National Resources
-"Mind is Sovereign" Here.
[Frodi a Speech by Archbishop . Ire -___
We own a land of plenty, flowing as
never Judea of old with milk and
honey. Where in this broad world is
there, as in the upper valley of the
Mississippi, a combination of nature's
riches for the up building of mighty
empires? Under the earth's surface and
upon it, in the air over it, and the
waters coursing thrugh it, we find all
the elements of health, wealth and so
Well may we love our land. In no
other age but this could its resources
have been so rapidly developed. The
genius of the Roman had not har
nessed to its service the wild forces of
nature as man has done in the nine
-teenth century; hence the Roman's
achievements are not to be compared
with ours. Steam and lightning obey
our behests; remote places are brought
near; the labor of years is finished in a
Mind is sovereign: it commands and
matter becomes the willing servant.
The American people have responded
l to the inspirations of the age; indeed
they have largely created the age.
r Their spirit of intercourse, their acute
ness of mind, their generosity of heart
Sbuilt the Republic and all its parts to
-the enviable loftiness among the na
r tions which rivets all eyes upon her.
SOur free institutions have formed an at
mosphere in which men grow to their
t fullest statues, and the sweetness and
vitror of which attract to our shores the
Smillions from their countries.
