New Yoas, Oct. 2d. drover Cleve land wa royally wtlcomed tun htat taa Imperial hotel by 200 of h a towna tacn wuea the Hullalojan club and Mvenoa club of the city of Ntw York, tne membership of which ia i ciusively cntiaed to tiatiVc of Huf faio, now re.dnt of thi city, ten dered him a reception. Mr. Cleveland i a inj iiber of thi club, but tonight w a thehrtttiu-.e during the three mouths of it eiutence that tie nad been pres ent at auy of their meetings. 11. C. llenrd.ct, pre. dent of the club, wtl comed Mr. Cleveland to the fold in an appropriate ipeech and then called on h:tn for a speech. Amid much enthu iam Mr. Cleveland arose and spoke a follows: "You have among you one at leat, who, tn;rty-two year ao, belonged with me to the democratic club which bad in hand the task of electuiStephen A. Ooulaa to the presidency. Many a uijjnt we marched side by ide, in yel low cape aad bearing torcnes. I do not believe either of u supposed for a moment that our candidate could bit defeated, provided we marched far enough and made noise enough and had enough of kerosme. oil running from our torches down our backs. "I am thu reminded of a time when my participation in tho activities cf politics meant enthusiasm for a man or a cause, a great deal of excitement and noie, plenty of dope aud confidence, generally followed by bitter d. ap pointment, soou forgotten. I hardly think you will be surprised to know that in when my relation to poli t.cs ha a rather more ot;r complex ion, I recall mv share in the campaign of ISilO, and all. its work aad disap pointment with comparative pleasure, ouieradothe marcmng aud shouting r?.ow, but I l-elieve they are enjoying the campaign more than 1 am. Some how the inmg looks more serious to me now, and 1 cannot help thinking that I am rather more closely related to the present campaign than I was when Douglas tan lor presidtnt." Hi Great Uvirullou. You know how devoted I am to tho principles of the democratic party, and your knowledgH of me will, 1 am sure, acquit me of ins ncerity when I exprea the opinion that the resultof the pend ing political struggle means more to our country and our people than any in which you or I have ever been en gaged. Oa one side the claim is de fiantly and arr gantly announced that the functions of our government may bo used directly for the benefit of cer tain special interests, with, at best, a very remote regard to the welfare of the masses of the people. In opposi tion to this an appeal is made to our fellow citizens to hold fast to the doc trine that their government should at all times be administered directly for tnem, and that they enouid not be obliged to receive as their .share of the blessings of the free government the' maintained, the small portion whicn may filter through to them in the pro cess of making special beneficiaries rich. In other words, the democratic party is insisting upon the honest ap pl.cation of the rule that a government by the people should be a government for the people. Tim Intelligent nufTaloman. "It is as needless as it is foreign to my purpose to discuss in detail, before those so thoughtful and intelligent as my Huffalo friends, the differences be tween the political principles and pur poses presented to our people for their approval, I only desire to assure you that the gratification which ycur per sonal attachment afford, is greatly rnciianced by the consciousness that it 1 thu attachment of those who are thoughtful and patriotic, and by the conviction that tho support that you give m an organised way, to your old townsman, cannot create in your m nJ the least suspicion that such support 1 in aid of principles at all in consistent with your highest duty as American Citizen. It only remains for ine t ay that, whatever roav be the result f the pending campaign, 1 shall always remember as its most pleasing incident, this occasion aad the evidence it furnishes of the consideration and devot on of the I'.uffalo friends I see here about me." Chauncey at Philadelphia. P1111.41 M.riti 4, Oct. 2f. Chauncy M. Iepew spoke upon republican is sues at the Academy of Muic tonight. ver ",KK people were present. In the coure of hi s;eech Mr. Iepew re ferred to Wavne MeVesgh a h;s friend and college mate and ?a;d the hitter's con version to democracy was not beraue of Patrick Kgan's appointment to Chili. '! met Patrick the other night." Mr. Iepew went on, "and Mr. Yeagh Might nav converted m had I not mt him. I sat beido h;m at dinarr and heard Inn speak and talked with him after dinner. I rode down town with tn:n tho next morning and crnn to tho eonr!u.on that tf I w president of the 1'nited Mate I would send Fgan back to Cniii."

At about noon President Harrison sent for private secretary Haltord and !a.d that if there were any important papers waiting in the otlice, to whicn tns signatnre was necessary, he would examine them. Fpecially if there were any recommendations for pardon awaiting his action he wanted them brought to his desk. He said that he wanted no person to suffer because of the sorrow- that had rome to him. It seemed rather to make him more solici tious to send joy and comfort if he could to the lives and homes of dis tressed and suffering ones. Two appli cations for pirdon, with favorable re ports from the Department of Justice were laid before hint and he at once signed them. The Funeral Servbrea.

SHROUDED IN GLOOM. Indianapolis Puts On Mourning for Mrs. Harrison. IspiAvarous, Oct. 2t?. Many of the business firms along Illinois, Washing ton and Pennsylvania streets, though the funeral cortege of Mrs. Harrison will pas to tne First Frebytenan church Friday, began to drape their buildings today, nd the city presents a marked contrast to its appearance lar-t week, when it was arrayed in bunt ing in honor of the great discovery. The drapery consits of black bands encircling the buildings from cornice to foundation, tastefully festooned with white of the same material. All of the business houses will be similarly draped by tomorrow evening, and many cf the private residences wall show appropriate tokens of sorrow. F'or the time leing and un til after the obsequies there will to no political demonstrations in the city, both parties having canceled all engagements out of respect to the dead mistress of the White nouse. When the lemains reach this city they wall te transferred directly to the church, where a short service will be held, and from the church they will be taken to Crown Hill cemetery for in terment. The funeral cortege will move north on Pennsylvania street, to Vermont street, then east to Delaware street and north to Seventh street, and west to Meridian street, tho principal thoroughfare leading to the cemetery. This route will take the cortege past the family residence on Delaware street, which was the home of Mrs. Harrison for many years prior to her ren:oval to Washington, and with which was associated so many of her most pleasant memories. Will Attend the Obsequies. Chicago, Oct. 1M. Secretary F'oster, General Schoheld and Capt. Wm. Mer idith, chief of bureau of printing and engraving, will leave for Indianapolis tomorrow morning to attend the funer al of Mrs. Harrison, Friday.

When it wa announced that the funeral services were to take place on Thursday, he saw it was useless to try and reach Washington in time to accorrfpany the remains to their last resting place. He at once telegraphed to tho president's secretary, Mr. Hal ford, but received no reply uutil this morning. Will Observe Her Funeral. CmcAoo, Oct. 26. Mayor Wash burne today issued order that all city denartments oxci titincr thoso of no- lice, tire and health, should be closed Kriday, the day of Mrs. Harrison's funeral. GRAIN DLOCKADE. Railroads Are Unable to Handle Chi cago Grain. Chicago, Oct. 2t'. No relief to tho growing grain blockade in Chicago was found today. On th other hand sev eral western roads, alarmed at the way grain cars were piling up, instructed tneir agents to load no more crain un til further orders. Put more thun 10, 000 car aro already loaded on western tracks enroute to Chicago. lnless the 10.0UO or more cars already here aie unloaded there is danger of the great est blockade in history. The hopes of western lines are largely that eastern roads will find means of lifting tho blockade, but ' no encouraging word came today. Probably a.000 cars were refused by them during the day. This shortage of cars seems only to redouble the demand for them in the west. Tho St. Paul is four thousand behind its orders, tue Atchison is prob ably six thousand behind and a conser vative estimate is that western roads could, if they had them properly placed according to the demands, load forty thousand cars tomorrow. The main trouble is that four-fifths of the business is east bound, and long lines of nii'ty cars muf-t bo hauled back for new loa Is. Tram Dispatchers' Union. MnMiau, Oct. '2.

Salter Chastises Two Louisville Swells FOR MASHING A SOUBRETTE The Young Men Were Prominent in Society and Their Female Friends are Greatly Shocked. Locisvhle, Ky., Oct. 23. "Don't monkey with the soubrette," is a motto ta which two society young men of this city will henceforta keep near est their hterts. The lesson which they had previously failed to learn wa impressed on them tonight in a man ner very sensational. One of the young men is Chailes S. Hermany, son of the superintendent of the Louis ville waterworks, and a prominent pol itician. Young Hermany moves in swell oociety, but he had a fondne.-? for the chorus girl and soubrette which was insupprcsMble.

She is only 10 years of age, and her fresh beauty had a peculiar attraction for Hermany and his friend. They had several times played the same game successfully, and last evening when Miss William" lei t the theater for the hotel, in company with Manager Salter and hi wifv, they followed. ICarly thi evening they called at the hotel and sent a note to Mi.s Williams. Its contents are not known. In a few minutes the young men, who sat in the parlor, heard some one comiug, and they began to pose themselves gracefully, when Man ager Salter entered, with the note in his hand. lloth Were Knocked Out. Suddenly his athletic arm Hew to the right and to the left, and the mashers lay sprawling on the velvet carpet. One of them sprang up, but the man ager saved him the trouble of walking down stairs by throwing him over the banisters. The other tried to fight it out, but ho was badly beaten and knocked through a large glass door. Anrofficer ran in, and tho young man exclaimed: "Da you dare arrest me. You don't know who I am. I'm the son of the superintendent of the water works, aud I'll work a week for re venge." He lives in a large brown stone house on F'ourth avenue, and his female friends are shocked.
