PATTLEFIEID OF CHICKAMAUGA
Dedicated With Imposing Cere*
The Blue and the Gray Were There to
the Number of 50,000 or More, and a
Scene of Unparalleled Kntunalatm
was l'reiented?Vloe-Frealdent HtnTcn
?on, General Palmer, General Gordon
and Others Spenfc.
Chattanooga., Teno., Sept. 19.?One
of tho bloodiest battlefields the world
ever saw was formally dedicated here
to day as a pleasure park for the edifi?
cation and enjoyment of the American
people for all time.
It was the dedication of the battle?
field of Chlckamauira, whose beautiful
ravines and mountain sides were strown
with nearly 30,0(10 dead and wounded
men thirty-two years ago. The dedica?
tion was conducted by men who thirty
two years ago fought in that awful
strife, ocen who at that time sought
each others' lives; sought to increase
tue bloodshed, if necessary to win the
Two generals, with silver-gray hair,
who headed thousands of mon in the
alTray on opposite sides, made the prin?
cipal speeches at tho dedication. They
were Generals John M. Palmer and
John B. Gordon. The feud which
stirred them to strife then has been
blotted out, and to-day they and their
followers are as brothers of one nation
and of ono family.
It is doubtful if the world ever before
saw another such scene as was that at
Chickamauga to-day. Certainly there
never was one more impressive, and, at
tho Bame time, joyfully affecting. It
was witnessed by no less than 50,000
people of the North and of the South,
and at least half of them took part in
that bloody civil war, of which Chicka
mauga battle was a part.
Tho ceremonies took place at Snod
graBS Hill, whoBB top and Bide for a
miio or more were so thickly covered
with dead this day thir.y-two years
ago, as the survivorB say ono could
walk all over It from crest to base step?
ping from ono prostrate body to another.
Hours btforo tho exorcises began tho
battlefield was alive with people. The
first evont was a display of arms by
battery F, Fourth United States artil?
lery. Then there was a battalion regi?
mental drill, showing the new tactlC3
and Held movements under command of
VIce-President Stevenson presided
over the dedicatory exercises, lie was
introduced by Oen. John S. Fullerton,
chairman of the Chickamauga and Chat?
tanooga National Park. When the
Vice President came forward he was
greeted with loud applause. Tho meet?
ing was called to order at 12 o'clock and
at that hour Snodgrass Hill waB covered
with people. The great natural area
selected by the national committee on
Snodgrass Hill was so arranged that
nearly all of the tens of thousands of
auditors oould hear tho speeches and
Ry way of beginning there was a na?
tional salute of forty-four guns by the
artillery, followed by "The StarSpan
gled Banner," played by one of the
United States infantry bands. It was
cheered to the echo by veterans of the'
blue and the grey, and in their patriotic
enthusiasm many of tho grizzled old
veterans shed tears of joy. When the
applause had ceaaed, Vice-President
Stevenson made a brief address, appro?
priate to tho ocoaslon. \
In closing he said: 1 Our dedication
to day is but a ceremony. In the words
of the immortal Lincoln at Gettysburg.
'But In a larger sense we cannot dedi?
cate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot
hallow this ground. The brave mon
living and dead, who struggled here
havo eDnsperated it far above our power
to add to it." "
When he had finished prayer was
offered by tho Right Rev. Bishop Qallor,
"America," the beautiful national
anthem, was then sung by the audience,
accompanied by the band, and every one
of he fifty ard odd thousand of people,
aseembled, bluejand grey, ea g it as if
iuspired. The grea? volume of sound
rolled up as a great tidal wave and long
before the song was ended tears we?o
coursing down the cheeks of thousands
of the old veterans.
(ran John M. Palmer, tho venerable
Senator from Illinois, who thirty-two
years ago to-day risked his life on the
battlefield, made the first dedicatory ad?
dress. When he came forward hiB voice
was husky and had a tremulous sound
And nevar In all his life, unless, per?
haps, when he was directing his men at
Chickamauga, did he speak more earn?
estly. He told the story of the battle of
Chickamauga, saying that but few of
the names of the fallen were known, but
the courage and gallantry of all could
be remembered. In conclusion he said:
"The civil war was caused by the sec?
tional challenge to American manhood,
and that-challenge accepted and fol?
lowed by years of bloody and desolate
war. In that war the Amerloan people
learned to properly estimate oach other,
whloh is the only foundation for harmo?
nious, national unity. By that war tho
theory of the right of the States to se?
cede from the union was forever eradi?
cated from our system of national con?
"To my comrades, you who were
Confederate soldiers during all the
weary struggle of tho civil war, I beg to
say I was proud of your gallant y and
courage. I never allowed mynelf to
furzet that you wore Americans, freoly
offerim? your lives in the defense of

in vindication of your manhood.

Another patriotic tu ie 'ollowod Gen?
eral Palmer, and then tho battle scar?
red vetoran of the Confederacy' whom |
Loo called his "right arm," John B.
Gordon, of Ueorgit?, was introduced.
He was greeted with no less applause
than acoorded General Palmer, and he
spoke with fully as much enthusiasm,
feeling and patriotism.
The next penon introduced was Gen.
Jamee Longatreet. He Bald in part:
"On a similar occasion at Gettysburg
President Abraham Lincoln said,'It is
for us, the living, rather tobe dedicated
here to the unfinished work,' and as
'from such green graves Borne good is
born', I would rather look to the 'un?
finished work' and the 'great task re?
maining before us; that the blue and
grey and the sons and daughters of
veterans on both sides cai heartily
join in extending, broadening, confirm?
ing and perpetuating a government of

quarantined at Eagle Pass, Texas, that
the government has no appropriation
from which it could pay their expenses

A SPANISH CRUISER SUNK
And tlio Commander of the Naval Forces
in Cuba Drowned.
Havana, Sopt. 19.?The cruiser Bar
castegul was wrecked at midnight by
coming into collision with the merchant
steamer Motera in the canal at the en?
trance of tha port of Havana. Admiral
Delgado Parejo and three other otllcerB
and many of tho crew were drowned.
Admiral Parejo's body haB boen re?
covered. Captain Vbanez's body was
also recovered, but In a badly mutilated
condition, Indicating that he had been
crushed In the collision. Tho cruiser
Baroastegui had been employed on gov?
ernment business between different
ports of tho island of Cuba. The Bar
caBtegul was a third-class cruiser, carry?
ing Qve heavy and two rapid flro guns.
She was of 1,000 tons displacement, and
was bullt in 137G.
The cruiser left tho port Barcaatogul at
midnight, with Admiral Dalgado Farejo
on board. On reaching the mouth of
the harbor close to Moro Fort, the
Baroastegui came In collision with the

The Fight May Not Occur.
Austin, Tex , Sept. 19 ?Tho assertion
of Governor Culbcrson on the prize fight
opinion of Judge Hurt, "That a full
bench should determine the matter and
thus determined, the law. whatever it is,
will be enforced," Is construed by some
hore as showing a woakenlng on his
part, but this is not true. It Is believed
that tho law against disturbing the
peace, anrl unlawful assemblies, relied
upon by Governor Boss, are suQlolent,
and Governor Culberson is going to rely
on them. It is believed he will have
Corbettand Fltzslmmons arrested before
the ughtan\putunder bonds to keep the
peaco, a d if they persist and enter the
ring ti.ey will be arrested and j ailed be?
fore they strike a blow. Everything here
plainly indicates that the powor of the
Sta.e is going to provont tho fight under
the common p?nal statutes, no matter

olrcles, it is not beilevod that Dan Stuart
will persist in h wing the fight at DalUs

DISASTROUS COLLISION AT SEA

Fob?The Trawler Vulture Resent* the
Remainder?There Wo no Panic.
Plymouth, Eng., Sept. 19?Tho
steamer Beretford has arrived here
having in tow the trawler Vulture, of
Brixham, and four ship boat?, contain?
ing the captain, crew and passengers of
the Netherlands-American Steamship
Company's steamship Edam, of Rotter?
dam, from New York, bound for
Amsterdam. At 1 o'clock this morning
the Eiam collided with the Turkistan
when fifty miles southeast of Start
Point. Tne collision occurred in the
dense fog. The Edam and the Turkistan
were lost to view in the fog. The cap?
tain, crew and paBsongers of the Edam,
who had taken to the boats imme?
diately after the collision, were picked
up by tho trawler.
The trawler Vulture was in fishing
grounds, fifteen miles from the Eddy
stone lighthouse lastnl ht. The night
had been clear, and just before 1 o'clock
a thick fog came up. Those on board
the Vulture heard a great blowing of
whistles and then a terrific crash. The
Vulture proceeded immediately to the
spot at which the sounds issued and
went alongside the steamship Edam,
which was rapidly filling. Captain
Brunsma, of the Edam, requested that
tho Vulture stand by. The ship's boats
were then quickly lowered and the pas?
sengers were helped Into them without
The passengers were greatly alarmed,
but there was no panic among them.
The majority went on deck without hav?
ing taken time to dress. Tno women
and children wore first ombarked in the
ship's boats. The sea at the time of
the collision was perfectly smooth. Tho
steamer Turkistan, whloh did not ap*
pear :o have sustained serious injury by
tho collision, stood by until the danger
was passed and then proceeded in the
direction of Cardiff. The Edam found?
ered at 3 o'clock, two hours -fter the
The Edam and Turkistan came to?
gether with (rroat force, although they
were proceeding cautiously In the fog.
The Turkistan's prow made a great hole
in the side of the Edam. Both vessels
immediately lowered boats, and many
passengers were taken from tho Edam
by the Turkistan's boats. Another ac?
count says that the Edam foundered
within half an hour after the collision.
Everything is being done at Plymouth
to make the ship wrecked people com?
fortable and to supply them with cloth?
ing, as all their baggage was lost. The
Edam had on board ninety three steerage
passengers, but no cabin passengers.
The Turkistan's boats were badly dam?
aged by tho collision. The officers of
the Edam refuse to give any details of
the disaster beyond saying that there
was no panic on board the steamship,
but that everybody kept perfectly cool.
From other sources it was learned
that the Edam settled down stem first,
and sank about forty minutes after the
vessels struck, by whloh time all tho
boats had gotten clear of tho doomed
ship. Captain Brunsma tried to board
her again before she Bank, but the
danger was too great.
The passengers were all emigrants of
the poorest class and none of them could
?peak English. When they reached
Plymouth they presented a pitiable
