TO THE OUEEN CITY
AN KNJOYAI1LE VISIT PAID BY IN
DIANAPOLIS BUSINESS 3IEN.
They Went to Iteturn a Friendly Call
nnd to Advertise the Fall
STOPS AT INDIANA CITIES
HOSPITALITY WAS EXTENDED ALL
ALONG THE LINE.
The Stay In Cincinnati Warn Made
Pleasant by the Daslness Men
of that City.
Two hundred and fifty-nine of the rep
resentative busines men of Indianapolis
ran a special excursion to Cincinnati yes
terday for the dual purpose of advertis
ing the fall carnival to be given In this
city Oct. S to 12 and of returning a visit
made to Indianapolis June 23 by the Busi
ness Men's Club of that city. Viewed
from either standpoint, the trip was emi
nently successful In accomplishing the de
sired purpose. It was a grand ovation
from start to finish. Four Indiana towns
were visited on the Itinerary, and at each
place and In Cincinnati the hospitality
of the citizens was extended to the Indi
anapolitans without stint. Everybody who
came in contact with the members of the
delegation heard of the carnival, and thou
sands have promised to attend who had
not previously heard of it.
It was thought that on account of the
short notice given the city would not
be able to make a creditable showing, but
the long line which marched In sets of
fours behind the Indianapolis Military Band
removed any fers that might have been
entertained, and caused a feeling of pride
to swell the bosom of every man In the
delegation. The special consisted of eight
coaches, and all were comfortably filled.
Good time was made both over the Big
Four going: down and over the C, II. &
D. on the return trip. In some places
a speed of sixty-eight miles an hour was
STOP AT SIIELBYVILLE.
, The first stop was made at Shelbyville.
The citizens had assembled in large num
bers at the depot, and when the train came
to a stop loudly cheered the visitors. Every
one on the train alighted and formed In a
line of parade, marching In sets of fours.
There were no formal ceremonies, and the
parade immediately started from the depot
to the public square, where it counter
marched to the train. All along the line
of march the business houses and resi
dences were profusely decorated with flags
and bunting. The streets were lined with
people, who kept up a continuous applause
all the time the marchers were passing.
Arriving at the depot the parade came to
a halt, and at the instance of John S.
Lazarus gave three hearty cheers for
Shelbyville, after which the delegation
boarded the train. The stop at Shelbyville
did not exceed thirty minutes.
The next stop was at Greensburg, where
the travelers were met by a delegation of
leading citizens with Mayor Willoushby at
their head. A new line of parade was
formed, and after marching over the prin
cipal streets of the city a halt was made In
front of the Dearmond Hotel, where Mayor
Wllloughby in a brief address formally wel
comed the visitors to the city. At the con
clusion of his remarks D. M. Parry, presi
dent of the Board of Trade, briefly thanked
the mayor for his warm welcome, and then
Introduced Judge Gavin, who made the for
mal response in behalf of the visitors.
Judge Gavin spoke briefly of his love for
Decatur ctfunty, saying that it was his boy
hood home, and brought his remarks to a
close with a hearty invitation to the citi
zens to visit Indianapolis during the week
of the carnival. As in Shelbyville, the
streets of Greensburg were profusely dec
orated and the crowd lined the streets all
along the line of march. The stop at
Greensburg occupied about forty-five min
utes. ARRIVAL. IN CINCINNATI.
The train arrived la Cincinatl at 11:30.
The Indlanapolltans were met at the train
by a large reception committee of the
Business Men's Club, headed by President
W. II. Harrl-on, Representative J. II.
Brorawell and the club band. The recep
tion accorded by the Cincinnatlans was a
royal one from beginning to end. After
parading through the business portions of
the city, the guests were escorted to the
Grand Hotel where they partook of a
most excellent luncheon.
At 2 o'clock the Cincinnati business men
escorted the visitors to the festival
grounds. The parade was marched through
all of the exhibition halls of the exposi
tion building, giving the visitors time to
catch a glimpse of the display, and then
a halt was finally made within the big can
vas of the German village. Here again
were the visitors surprised at the hospitali
ty. Long tables had been stretched from
one end of the tent to the other, at which
the visitors were seated and invited to par
take of a genuine Dutch luncheon. While
the luncheon was In progress a vaudeville
troupe, which had been procured for the
occasion, furnished an exceedingly delight
At the conclusion of the performance
Mayor Fleischman appeared upon the plat
form and extended a hearty welcome
in which he literally turned over the keys
of the city to the visitors. He paid a warm
tribute to Indianapolis and her citizens,
paying that it is one of the most progres
sive cities in the United States and that her
citizens are famed everywhere for their
push and enterprise. In conclusion he said
that Indianapolis might expect a return
visit during the carnival, as such a trip
would not only be a pleasure, but had now
become a duty. In response to Mayor
Fleischman, D. M. Parry thanked him for
his words of welcome and cordially ex
tended an invitation to the citizens of
Cmncinnatl to visit Indianapolis during
the week of the carnival in October. Mr.
Parry was followed in his remarks by
Judge Gavin, J. C. Adams, C. A. Book
waiter, I. S. Gordon and others, who all
made appropriate remarks with reference
to the royal reception that had been ten
dered them by the citizens of a sister city.
HAD A GOOD TIME.
When the formal speechmaklng was over
an adjournment was had to the "Streets
of Cairo," which entertainment was thrown
open free to the visitors. In this place of
amusement the staid business men of In
dianapolis gave wings to their dignified de
meanor and for the nonce became boys
again. D. M. Parry, with two of the Cin
cinnatlans. was soon mounted on a camel
and went trotting out of the arena with all
the glee of a boy. His example was in
fectious, and soon every camel and mule to
be had was cavorting up and down with
more dignity to the square inch on their
backs than they had probably ever carried
The show, which began shortly after
ward?, was turned over entirely to the vis
itors. I. S Gordon was appointed stage
director and served most admirably.
When the performance had been con
cluded the visitors were again escorted
through the exposition building, giving
them another glimpse of the big show, and
then out to the streets, where five special
cars conveyed the tired Indlanlans to the
C. II. & D. depot. The business men,
when In marching array, presented a fine
appearance, the long line being kept In
splendid order and marching with the mili
tary precision of veterans. All along the
line of march in Cincinnati the streets were
crowded with people, who accorded the vis
itors a hearty welcome in a demonstrative
On the return trip the train left Cincin
nati at 5:C0 p. m., arriving at Connersville
at 7:20. A most hearty reception was ten
dered the visitors in that city by the Elks
and the Manufacturers Club.
After marching through the streets,
which were crowded to the curb, the visit
ors were escorted to the Elks' lodgerooms,
where they were Invited to partake of a
luncheon, consisting of hot coffee, sand
wiches and other edibles most acceptable
to the hungry travelers. Before reaching
Connersvill3 every person on the train had
been provided with a number of Roman
candles, and these were fired off with good
effect when the visitors reached the main
street of the city. After the luncheon the
visitors were welcomed to the city by City
Attorney L. L. Broaddus. and appropriate
responses were made by D. M. Parry, I. S.
Gordon, Charles A. Bookwalter and others.
More than an hour was spent in Conners
ville In mutual felicitation, and the Indian
apolis people left the city with regrets.
The train arrived at Rushville at 9 p. m.
and the delegation was again tendered an
ovation. After another pyrotechnic parade
the visitors were again invited to partake
of an excellent repast provided by the citi
zens of the city. After a half hour at the
table the party adjourned to the east
entrance of the courthouse, where Mayor
J. F. F"razer briefly extended a cordial wel
come in behalf of the city. Responses were
made by Smiley N. Chambers and A. M.
Sweeney. Charles A. Bookwalter made a
speech which caught the crowd and was
warmly applauded at its conclusion. Brief
remarks were also made by Marshal Stev
ens and others of Rushville, congratulating
Indianapolis on the progressive spirit
shown by her citizens. At 10:30 the tired
travelers marched to the train which, after
a fast run, arrived In Indianapolis at 11:30.

H. B. HOWIAND'S FUNERAL.
It YVns Held nt Hovrland Station
The funeral of Hiram B. Howland, who
died suddenly Wednesday night, was held
yesterday afternoon from hlb late home, at
Howland Station. The services were con
ducted by the Rev. Joseph A. Milburn, of
the Second Presbyterian Church, and were
attended by all the members of the State
Board of Agriculture and the Governor's
staff and a large number of friends. The
pallbearers were YV. W. Stevens, E. II.

BIG CHICAGO EXCURSION.
Several Thousand People Carried, to
the Windy City.
Such a large excursion went to Chicago
over the Lake Erie & Western last night
that the crowd at the Union Station more
nearly resembled the crush on the last day
of the state fair. Five regular sections and
a "pick-up" train from the yards, made up
of forty-eight coaches, carried the excur
sionists out of the station. The first train
left at 8 o'clock, . with the aisles of the
coaches packed and foot space scarce on
the platforms. The second, which left an
hour and a half later, was not so crowded,
but carried too many for a comfortable
trip. The third, scheduled to leave at 10
o'clock, was supposed to meet the emer
gency, but the crowd had apparently not
diminished. Another train was ordered
out of the yards, and when it pulled Into
the station enough had already passed
through the gates to fill It. Then there
was the make-up from the yards. Alto
gether, it is estimated that between 4.000
and 5,000 took advantage of the cheap rates
to visit the metropolis of the West.
The Philharmonic Club.
The Philharmonic Club has elected the
following officers for the ensuing season:
President, H. H. Y'an Wei; vice president,
Charles Y Green; secretary, Charles K.
Henderson; treasurer, H. N. Talbot; li
brarian. P. M. Slauter. Mr. Edward Nell
was re-engaged as conductor, and Mr.
Charles F. Hansen will be retained as
accompanist. The club's rehearsals have
commenced in earnest, and it is proposed
to make this sixth season the most pros
perous the club has ever known. Some
pleasant surprises will be revealed to In
dianapolis music lovers when the club's
concerts are announced, it is said.

The State Fee and Salary Commission

CAXT VOTE FOR BRY'AX.
An Illinois Judjre Whose Vote Will Go
Clarence A. Kenyon received a letter yes
terday from a friend in Lincoln, 111., who
announces his determination to forsake the
Democratic party after a lifetime affilia
tion with it and vote for McKinley and
Roosevelt in November. The writer is a
well-known attorney of Lincoln and until
within recent years has been a Democratic
politician of great prominence, having been
judge of the Circuit Court at one time.
For the reason that he is not now active in
politics, but engaged in the practice of his
profession, the gentleman requested Mr.
Kenyon to refrain from publishing his
name. The letter is, in part, as follows:
"I do not expect to vote for Mr. Bryan.
I am of the opinion that in the city of Chi
cago there will be a considerable number
of Gold Democrats who will support
Bryan. Outside of Chicago in this State I
am of opinion that at least 90 per cent, of
those who voted for Palmer and Buckner
will in November cast their ballots for Mc
Kinley. That is the condition in this coun
ty, in Sangamon, Dewltt and Menard, and
1 have good reason to believe practically
all over the State outside of Chicago. As
to Chicago, my information is that at least
70 per cent, of the Palmer and Buckner
vote will go to McKinley. Of those Gold
Democrats who voted for McKinley four
years ago, I think a large percentage of
them will vote for him again this year.
There is nothing more sure in this life than
that McKinley will carry Illinois by a
very large majority perhaps something
less than in 1S06, but large enough to make
it effective and overwhelming.
"The course of Bryan during the present
campaign fully illustrates the kind of man
he is. In some respects a master of rhetoric
and of oratory, he represents all that Is
unstable and imprudent in political life.
In other words he signally fails to possess
those great sturdy Qualities possessed bv
cx-Presldents Harrison and Cleveland. I
regard him as an exceedingly unsafe man
to make President. My long-time affection
for Mr. Stevenson would certainly induce
me to vote that ticket if it were not for
the belief I have that the election of Bryan
would be In the last degree not only de
plorable but a menace to the orderly gov
ernment of our country and to all its great
"I do not see why Indiana should be a
doubtful State unless the Gold Democrat3
have gone over bodily to Bryan. I have
not seen evidences in the public press that
this is likely to happen. My experience is
that the average Gold Democrat is inclined
to be a solid 'Muldoon,' not likely to be
carried from his feet with phrases and
rhetoric. I ought to add that I am entirely
out of politics and simply take that interest
In it which I believe every good citizen

LETTER FROM ROOSEVELT.
He Commends' the Political Stand of
.Capt. William E. EnglUh.
Capt. Wm. E. English, who is still at
Rockbridge Alum Springs, Yra., with Mrs.
English, where he is rapidly improving In
health, has received the following warm
letter of congratulation upon his political
position from Colonel Roosevelt, with
whom he served in the cavalry division
