MAtmo.v , WIs. , Oct lo.-Speclal [ Tele-
; ram to the Hnr.1 Yesterday was com-
Jiionplaco Sunday In Madison , tlio only ex
ceptions to the general rule being the wilted
decorations on the streets , the somewhat In
creased numbers passing by the postmaster
general's residence and the crowds which
( fathered In and about Grace Kplscop.il
church. The oltlclnls of that church had been
led to believe that the president would wor
ship there and the papers Had published sup
positions to that effect , which tbo public
credited as true because they wont uncontra-
dieted. Hut the president remained relig
iously away , thereby causing great disap
pointment , ns the church wns crowded and
hundreds of curious people thronged tlie
walk In front and tlio Capitol park across the
Micot , remaining thcro until the services
were over nnd the congregation had dis
persed. The church was handsomely deco
rated with llowers , leaves , grain
In f > talk , etc. . for the president.
The .services passed on * smoothly , but the
congregation was not satisfied. It may have
been a mistaken Impression , but It seemed
to the casual observer tlmt the usual prajer ,
"Bless th President of the United States. "
was uttered with a suspicion of emphasis ,
Men who had not zone to church for years
were there and were badly sold as a result of
trying to mix religion with sight-seel K. ' 1 ho
only member of General Lucius Fulrchild'a
family who attomuul services was a thirteen-
year-old daughter. The family are all high
church peonlo and , are very regular In at
tendance. Their absence is a strong evidence
that they duly rccognUod tlio slight to which
they had been subjected In being Ignored at
all the social events at the Vitas residence
Incident to entertaining the president. The
failuio of the president to attend cliurcb ,
especially after the recent squabble over
cards of admission , Is looked upon by the
public generally as n huge joke at the ex
pense of the church and those who wcro led
to attend. Tlio city Is grinning trom ear to
ear , as It wore. The mother ot the postmaster
general was the only member of the
Vilas' family who attended service. The
carpenters hustled the 31,500 Vilas memorial
window Into a place In the church nnd this
fast Induced a popular belief that the presi
dent would surely attend. Hut the Vilas
pew and the one directly behind it were Inlt
vacant all through the services for the presi
dential party and many anxious glances were
cast at them and the entrance only to meet
with disappointment. It now turns out that
the president had no Intention of attending
the Kplscopal church , but had tnado up his
niind to go with Mrs. Cleveland to the
Presbyterian church , of which the latter is n
member , but he was kept up very late Satur
day night at the public reception and be-
cumo PO fatigued that he slept till nearly 10
o'clock Sunday mornlnir. At 11 he was at
the breakfast table and of course had to
abandon all notions of iroine to church. It
la no exaggeration to say that If ( irover
Cleveland were before the people for re
election this week the only member of Grace
Kolscoual church who would vote for him
would bo Postmaster J. C. Gregory , and the
membership embraces u goodly number of
line democrats , too , but they don't have
that ardent admiration for the presidential
party that they had Saturday.
IPressl. Mrs. Cleveland and Mrs. Vilas
took carriages at 8SO : this morning and
drove to the railroad depot. The presi
dent and Colonel Vilas Walked. A special
train leit for St. I'aul at U o'clock. There
were a few hundred people at the sta
tion to bid thorn good bye , but tlioro was no
ornaul/ed demonstration ot any kind.

PonTAon , WIs. , Oct. 10. The president's
special train reached this point at 10:05 : this
morning and stopped live minutes. The en
tire population was at the station and the
president and Mrs. Cleveland appeared upon
the platform of the car , ulving tno peoolo the
opportunity or seeing them. As many as
could get near enough shook the president's
hand. A brass band serenaded the party
during Its stay.

Jfr.w * LISIION , Wls.Oct. ; ID-The president's
train reached hero at a quarter past eleven
and stopped four minutes. Iktween two
nnd three thousand people were In waiting
at the station , and the time of the president
was fully taken up In handshaking. Mrs.
Cleveland appeared at the window of the car
and divide ! the attention with the president.
She gracefully smiled 'lor ' acknowledgments
of tire greetings of the people. An artillery
ealuto was tired-and the Mitchell grand army
post gave the president three cheers as the

LxcnossB , WIs. , Oct. 10. The president's
8 | > eclal train reached bero at 1 o'clock. A
salute of twenty-one guns was tired as the
train entered the station. The throng of
people , numbering six or eight thousand ,
awaited the arrival of the train and lustily
cheered the visitors as they alighted and
crossed the platform to carriages. Steam
whistles of mills nnd steamers on tbo Missis-
dipppl river blew their loudest , The station
. and the principal streets were decked with
bunting. The party were PscoiteU through
the principal streets by the governor's cnard.
The mayor and the president of the board of
trade accompanied the president In his car
riage. The entire population , with a ureat
number from a distance , wore on the streets.
, The train stopped twenty minutes.
Arrival nt Ht. Paul.
ST. PAUL , Oct. 10. The special tialn con-
'talnlng thn presidential party reached St.
I'aul exactly on time at half-past 5 o'clock
this evening. The run from Madison was
perhaps the most en jo vable journey the party
has experienced .slnco their departure from
Washington. All Ind been thoroughly
rested and wcro In the best of health nnd
spirits , while the weather for the greater part
of the day wns tine. The region through
which tbo train passed is onuot the pleasant-
est sections of the northwest The people
along the line and at the smaller stations
I were much loss demonstrative than thoiu of
thurolous earlier on the trip. They gath
ered at many points In little groups and
swung their hats or handkerchiefs. There
wcro few attempts at decoration , and the
people seemed Intent only on satisfying
their dcslro to sue the president. At
hacro-.se , where the train tarried twenty
minutes , there was a llltlo gem ot a demon
stration , which vias highly praised by the
recipient. Though there were 10,000 people
at the station , with twice us many more lin
ing the streets of the town , the utmost order
prevailed throughout. At other points \ \ here
three-minute stops weru made handshackini ;
took place of a now familiar character , jet
1 Ith u difference. The people jostled and
i crovvdoa , but laughed ns they did so , and pert -
] t tectuood humor prevailed. Just north of
I Wmoua a throng of workmen were gathered ,
' and ono on horseback rode up to
' the present Mrs. Cleveland with , a
Iiandsoiue boquot lie reached It out
* * nd thought it safe in her
liana , but unluckily It was nut
and fell to the ground. An athletic fellow
from among the workmen leaped Into the
ditch , picked up ( bo turners and delivered
them. lie was rewarded with n bright smile
and the enthusiastic checn ot his fellow-
.The weather to-day has hocn bracing and
froslv. The crowd Is unparalleled In the city's
history. A conservative estimate places the
number of strangers In town at 50.001) ) and
pedestrianlsm Is attended with dlfllcultles.
A largo contingent gathered at the depot
long before the tlmo the president's train was
duo and waited patiently. When the train
pulled Into the depot the reception commit
tee boarded tbe president's car , where they
found the president and Mrs. Cleveland
waiting them. Escorted by the committee
they came out and proceeded down the plat
form , while the band played and a battery
near the depot lired the presiden
tial salute. As Mrs , Cleveland walKed
down three little girls stepped forward and
presented her with three lo\ely bouquets of
pink roses. 'Ihe party then entered car
riages and was escorted to the hotel. The
streets were literally jammed with u mass of
humanity which surged after the carriages In
At the Hot"l Ryan the president nnd party
were escorted to the parlor and Introduced to
Mayor Smith , who delivered a brief speech
of welcome , which was responded to by thn
resident In a strong , clear voice ns follows :
1 was reminded by the Invitation I received
0 visit the state of Minnesota and the city of
St. Paul that adistinmiished statesman visit-
ng hero In IbOO gpnkn of this place as the
center ot tlio continent of Nortli America ,
nnd stated his belief tlmt the ultimate last
ieat ol the government ot this great conti
nent would be found somewhere not far
rom the spot on which he stood ,
the head of navigation of the
ississippi river. At the time of
Mr. Sewnrd's visit the population of your
state was 172.000 and that of St. Paul , Its
capital city , 10,000.Vhatshall I say , who.
alter twenty-seven years have passed , tind
hero n state containing nearly a million and
a Half of people and Its capital with a popu-
'atlon nearly as great ns that of thn state
tself In 1800. And while one Is considering
this Immense growth he' Is actually amazed
by tlio fact that CO per cent or more of the
population of the state has been added In the
ast llvo years and tlmt tlie population of St
Paul has moro than trebled within the same
time. Whether you are to have here the seat
of government of thlsgrcat continent or not ,
1 do not know. Those ot us who are en
gaged in the business of the govern
ment at Washington ore certainly , not
nt present preparing to move here ,
lint the seat ot those things which control the
government and make it great are fast mov
ing this way. The center of the country's
population Is rapidly moving westward , nnd
the Increase of the wealth and product of
this wonderful region Is moro than keeping
pace with the movement In your direction of
the nation's population. The president then
spoke at some length In praise of the city
and state and concluded as follows : "My
visit to yon being a social one , and trusting
that wo have n sort of friendly feeling for
each other , I want to sugKest to you a reason
why I nm particularly nnd personally Inter
ested In St. Paul and Its people. Some jears
ngo a young girl 'dwelt among you nnd went
to school. She has grown up to be a woman
nnd Is now my wife. If nuvouo thinks a
president ought not to mention things ot this
sort In public , 1 hope ho or she
does not live In St. Prill , for I don't want to
speak to anybody when 1 thank the good
peonle of this city , because they neither mar
ried or spoiled my wife ( laughter and ap
plause ) , and when 1 tell them that they are
related to that In my life which- bettor
than all earth's honors and distinction. Here
after you mav bo sure that her pleanant recol-
"ectlon of school days will be reinforced by
: ho no loss pleasant memory of our present
visit , and thus will our present Interest In
St. Paul and Its kind cltUens bo Increased
and perpetuated. "
When the speech-making was concluded
the party went to dinner In a private room ,
after which they retired to their apartments
to prepare for the events of the evening.
At 7:45 the party again took carriages and
was driven through the brilliantly Illumi
nated streets to tlie reviewing stand , where
the procession passed before them. The
toboggan clubs , mustering 1,500 ladies and
gentlemen , was the most notable feature of
the procession. After the procession passed
the party returned to tbe hotel , whore a gen-
> ral public reception was held for two hours ,
Jommander-ln-Chief Rae being auiong the
callers. All had an opportunity to see the
president at close quarters , but there was no

DEFENDING LAW AND ORDER.
A Wild Scene Among the Knights
nt Minneapolis Qulnn of New
York Introduce * a I'ro-An-
Powderly ho ft Ills Chair.
MINNEAPOLIS , Oct , lo. 'Iheni was only
one session ot the Knights of Labor assem
bly to-day and at the call to order at 2 p. in.
the committees were not ready to report. An
opportunity was thus presented for bringing
up the long looked for anarchy discussions.
James K. Qulnn , of District Assembly No.
49. of New York , presentert the following
resolution under n suspension of the rules :
' Considering that the development of the
human mind In the nineteenth century has
reached a point where public opinion Is expressed -
pressed almost universally against capital
punishment or the taking of human life by
udlclal process as a relic ot barbarism ;
hercfore , be It
Ucsolved , That this convention expresses
rrow that the men In Cnlcago were doomed
0 death and use every endeavor to secuio a
lommutatlou of the sentence ot death passed
pen them. "
The convention was at once thrown into
.he wildest excitement , scores of delegates
.rylng . at the same tlmo to obtain the floor.
General Master Workman Powderly decided
li resolution out of order. Joseph Vans , of
PltUburg , appealed from tlie decision. The
ippeal was lost by a vote of 151 to
> 2. Before the appeal was taken Mr.
'owdorly called General Worthy Foreman
irinitli , of Chicago , to the chair , and In a
ihortbut vehement speech called upon the
onventlon to defeat the resolution. Ho
aid no true Knight of Labor could be an
inarchlst Ho appealed to delegates In 1m-
jiassloned words not to pervert the purposes
Jf tlio order by the passage ol any such rcso-
iitlons. It was the hottest speech Powderly
ns ever known to nuke. Qulnn , who
.tie.rod tlie resolution , voted aye on the ap
peal in order to move a reconsideration.
number of other warm speeches were
made. This was tlie principal ephode of the
day. The general opinion of the delegate- )
to-night is that no serious lUht will coma up
before the convention closes its work. A
sharp discussion Is likely to occur over the
< aw governing national trades districts. The
iirlit tlmt it was supposed that would be
nade against Powderly and other general
olliccrs , is said to have been given up.- .
The Separate I'urty Movcmcn't.
MINNEAPOLIS , Oct. 10. An expression of
opinion on the advisability of the labor party
movement was obtained from a large num
ber of Knights of Labor to-day. The result
of the Interviews shows that the majority ot
ho general otllcers nnd the more conservn-
Ive element icgard the time ns not yet npa
'or a separate party movement , while tbe
rank and file and the more radical of the of
ficers are eager for the labor party.
Powderly is the general choice for
president , but only a few have any Idea
he would accept the nomination. George is
mentioned less than would bo expected. A
remarkably largo number of those Inter
viewed are republicans , or were republicans
before adulating with the Independent move
ment. There ate only three or four demo
crats In the entire list. The labor vote In
the whole country a year hence Is put all the
wav from titty thousand to a
million. Opinion is about evenly
divided as to the ellect on
the old parties , the Idea perhaps prevailing
that the demociats would suffer most. It Is
the almost Unanimous sentiment that the
George movement In New York this fall will
defeat the democrats , if not successful itself.
Mr. Powderly declined to talk , but from
members of tlie executive board It is learned
he is opposed to a systematic movement tor n
good while yet.
NEW Tonic , Oct. 10. Seven of the Brook
lyn Job printing bosses to whom the new
scale of wages was presented , to-day cou-
ceded the scale with tlio exception of tlio
clause relating to strictly job otiices. The
master printers' association met tins after
noon and resolved that the demand to make
the houses strletlv union ollices could not be
granted. The decision Involves throwing
2,500 compositors out of employment and It
Is thouiiht 1,000 piece men will go out , too.

The Fluhnrlcs Question.
WASIIINOTOX , Oct. 10. ( Special Telegram
to the UKE. ] Messrs. Ancell and Putnam , of
the fisheries commission , called on Secretary
Jiayard to-day and held nn extended con
sultation with that gentleman In relation to
the course of the American members of the
joint commission. It Is understood that the
conference was Informal and that only ono
point was delinltely agreed upon. This Is In
relation to tbo admission of Canadian fish
into tlio markets of the United States. It
was decided that under no clicuinstanccs
would the American members of the commis
sion consent to any settlement of the contro
versy which contemplates the ndmKslon of
Canadian fish ftce of duty. Mr. Hayard
expects by this policy to win the support of
the New Ktiirlnnd fishermen , which are at
present disposed to object to any settlement
whatever through a commission. It
this policy has the effect which Is
hoped for , it Is believed that
the convention which mav come
From the meeting of the commission will
neet with more favor In the senate. Tlie
( iiestion of to o three-mile limit received
/cry little attention to-day , and U Is quite
irobablo that this Important subject will bo
ubmlttcd to arbitration. There will bo
nothing done by the commission towards
lettling the. seal fisheries controversies unless
he Ami1 ! lean members change their present
dens. All disputes arising from these issues
) f Canadian and British sealers will be left
: o the courts to decide. Messrs. Angoll and
'utnam left tlie city this afternoon and will
irobably not return until ttie latter part 'of
