VOL XXXII.-N N P C lV , NTS ENA, MONTANA. WEDNESDAY MORNING. AUGUST 6, 1881. PRICE FIVE CNT ., 1891,- PRIC _IECE T THE MRCH OFVETERA .Scenes Along the Line of March Through the Streets of Detroit. An Ex - President of the United Btates Walking With His Comrades. Positlen in Line and Numerical Repre eontatlon of the States-Gen. Vea say's Handsome Present. parrorr, Aug. 4. - This has been a a proud day in the history of the Grand Army of the Republic. It has witnessed the grandest parade in the his tory of the organization, and has made the twenty-fifth or "Silver Encampment" an occasion of magnificence and grandeur, surpassing even the fondest dreams cher ished by its humble founder, Dr. Steven son, of Illinois, twenty-five years ago. For six hours to-day, under the bright sun, 40, 000 veterans tramped sturdily over the line of mareh,. and such was the inspiration of the moment that even the feeblest of the maimed and crippled comrades found themselves adequate to the ordeal of march. The firing of a salute from the United States steamship Michigan, in the har bar, announced to the waiting veterans, at 10:30 that the command to move had been given by the commander-in-chief. When Gen. Veazey appeared before the reviewing stand the vast concourse of people clustered about Campus Martins cheered themselves hoarse. The general reigned up his charger and paused. Gen. Alger and Detroit post, his escort, passed by him and drew up be fore the reviewing stand, fronting it with n.ms at "oharge." Gen. Veazey looked on . with a gratified smile, then lifting his hat gracefully from his brow, allowed his horse to pas with slow step before them. As he passed the reviewing stand every occupant arose to his feet. Foremost was Gen. Miles, of the regular army, who had been leaning over bareheaded, with his white-gloved hands knitted above his sword hilt. Gen. Veazey reached the end of the post, and the patriot veterans unfurled their flag and struck up a lively air, and the crowd cheered once more. Gen. Veazey then rode to the stand, and, dismounting, entered his box in front. Detroit post passed by and the parade continued toward the massive war arch. Beside the staff of the commander-in-chief there were on the reviewing stand Secretary of War Proctor, Secretary of the Navy 'l'raey, Gen. Miles, Assistant Secretary of the Interior Bussey, two or three governors and half a dozen past commanders-in chief. Four magnificent arches erected by citizens in different parts of the city marked the line of march. More beautiful still was the magnificent tower and war arch at the interseetion of Woodward and Jefferson avenues. It was a veritable work of art. The procession started from Wood ward and Adams avenues with Commander in-Chief Veazey and his staff in the lead until the stand from which thecommander in-chief and staff reviewed the parade was reached. On Illinois, the homes of Lin coln, Grant anod Logan, was conferred the honor of right of line. I)epartment Com mader Clark led the Illinois command, with 3,0(00 men in line. The umbrella corps, 300 strong, was a feature of the Illinois division. In a corner square of blue umbrellas was represented each state in the union and red, white and blue umbrellas in columns served to represent the stripes of the flag. As each division passed beneath triumphal arches little girls showered the veterans with flow. ers. "Old Abe," the stuffed war eagle, led the Wisconsin boys. 700 strong. After this, in the order named, came 'ennsylvania, 100; Ohio, 83.000; New York. 2,500; Connecti cut, 1,500; Massaehusette, 2,500; New Jersey, 40; Maine, 100; California, 25; then New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, de. partments of the Potomao, 500; Virginia, 800: Nebraska, 500: Michigan, 15,000; Indi ana, 2,800: Iowa, 300. The department of Col orado and Wyoming was headed by a zonave drum corps, about 100 men in line. Four hundred veterans of Kansas, led by depart ment Commander Timothy McCarthy, rep resented the Grasshopper state, and each carried on hi' breast a Kansas G. A. R. pin bearing the figure of this destructive little insect. Oregon was but meagerly rep resented. Five hundred comrades from Kentuoky were marshalled by Department Commander Hillis. West Virginia con tributed 200 men to the grand parade, and Department Commander Duval led the division. Past Department Commander Raymond and Col. C. 1B. Smith, one of the trusted lieutenants of the gallant Custer, were in line. South Dakota, though a small delegation. made a splendid showing, and were cordially received. Washington and Alaska departments, moat distant of all aubordinate divisions of the G. A. R., was represented by a little croup. (a..

Eight men represented the infant state of Montana, under command of Department Comman der Simons. The Lone Star state was rep resented by forty men, led by Department Commander Mann, the gallant commander of the famous Second Illinois artillery. On the flagstaff in the first rank a pair of iTexas horns, seven feet from tip to tip, was emblematic of one of the products of the state. The Idaho delegation numbered twelve persons, including United States Senator Shoup, Department Commander Spofford and Adj.-Gen. Norman H. Camlp, of Boise City. A small body of veterans from Alabama, Georgia and Florida were loudly cheered. The naval veterans were also warmly received. The Sons of Veterans 5,000 strong and in command of Commander-in-Chief L. J. Webb, brought up the rear of the long pro cession. '1 he spectacle of an ex-president of the United Stetes marching in ranks is so unusual that the tremsendous ovation tendered ex-President. Hayes to-day was hardly a narprise. Cheers, which swept along the line ot march like a huae, but slowly rising tidal wave, was ever an indi cation of the presence of the distinguiahed ex-president. HMr. Hayes was recognized by all as he mrcrhed with hiis oaatfrom Fremont, Ohio. Down Griswold street and rleer the intersection of (Congress stroot, he kissed several little girls who ran out to meet him. The old gentleman carried a palm leaf fan and appeared to enjoy the oc casion quite as much as his comrades of the post. As New York swept around the corner with a splendid band and drlum corps, their armed guards for stalrters, with their gloam ing hayonets, their appearance was always a signal for cheers, but the Continentals, with cocked hats and regimentals, led by Uncle Sam himsnelf, took the croiwd, who cheered themselves hoarse. This unique band, with its odd looking drummers, led the three solid platoons hearing the old war colors of New York. The scream of bag ilpes of the Twenty-ninth New York. play ing "Tlhe Campbells Are Coming," was heard from all points. Post lelongarry carried two battered regimental flags. P'enasylvanita division carried blttle flags with the titles "iplottsylvarlia" and other names of fields rendered inirnol til by tern I hle strife. A storm of applause salutsed these battle-noaryed colol.. Ex-l'resident lines, accompanied by ol. E. J.

"Commander. in-Chief Veazey," said ex President Hayes. "the comrades who have been honored with a place on your staf have assigned to me an agreeable duty in presenting you this badge. We ask you to accept it as a token of the esteem, admira tion and affection in which you are held by ourselves and comrades of the Grand Army of the Republic. It will, we trust, bring you and your family joy, remind you of the honorable part you bore in the great event of the age, the sacred and stainless war for union and lib erty. [Applause.] During the term of office you have, as prgmised when chosen, kept between yourselves and comrades not only the touch of elbow but the touch of heart. May this simple fact remind you pleasantly of events, scenes and comrade ship of the great conflict of that famous day. of Gettysburg, the day of your oppor tunity, of your honorable services, and of signal triumph. May it be a well-spring of gratifying meditations upon the future. In after times your children will be filled with gratitude that providence allotted them the inspiring privilege of tracing their origin to the man who, in young manhood was a splendid figure in a decisive battle of the divine war, and stood faithfully and bravely by Abraham Lincoln from its be ginning to end. [Applause.] Our wishes and prayers are that your life may be long and happy in the land which you did your part to save." [Applause.] Gen. Veazey replied briefly thanking the donors for their good wishes and graceful compliment. PLACE AND POSITION. Washington Will lie Selected-New Candl dates May Spring Up. DETROIT. Aug. 4.-The next national en campment of the G. A. R. will be held at Washington city. The correctness of this assertion may not be conceded by the parti sans of Lincoln,Neb., but inquiry at various department headquarters indicates that when the roll of states is called on the lo cation of the next encampment, Washing ton will get the prize by a vote of nearly two to one. The various candidates for commander-in-chief are pressing their claims with increased energy to-night. Charles P. Lincoln, of Washington, I. C., assistant commissioner of pensions, has withdrawn from the race. As it stands to night the choice is between Weissert, of Wisconsin, Smedburg, of California, Hurst, of Ohio and Hodges, of New York. Weis sert's candidacy is the only one that is sharply defined as to states. The west, with the exception of the Pacific coast, is practically solid for this candidate. The situation is complicated to-night by the sudden extravagant claims of Ohio for Hurst and the rumor that Illinois may de cide to present the name of Ex-Gov. Rich ard J. Oglesby for commander.in-chief. The race problem still looms up omin ously, and the question on every lip now is, "Can this dispute be settled by the encamp ment without serious disruption in the southern divisions?" Colored delegates from Louisiana will make a request to-mor row to present their side of the case in an address to the encampment. Col. James Lewis, colored, administrator of police and public works, of New Orleans, is a cham pion of the colored side. When asked what the trouble in' Louisiana was, he said: " We have nine posts, with a membership of over one thousand, yet we are not recognized by the commander of our department. We get no representation in the convention and are ordered to report to the command er-in-chief. Our department commander thinks that we want social recognition. I claim that the order is not a social, but historic and fraternal one." To-night was devoted to receptions to the commander-in-chief, the G. A. iR., the Women's Relief Corps, and the Sons of Veterans, by the citizeins of Dotrmit, at En campment hail. ASSORTED WOOLS. A Ruling by the Board of Appraisers at New York. NEw YouK, Aug. 4.--The board of general appraisers to-day rendered an important decision on the construction of paragraph 183 on the new tariff act. which recently become the subject of controversy between the woolgrowers of Ohio and carpet manu facturers of New England. The opinion is that the "sorting classes" referred to in paragraph 183 apply to all wools, including wool of the third class. Sorting is here, in effect, defined by the statute to be a process of separation which increases in value imported wool by the rejection of part of the original fleece. The phrase "shall be twice the duty to which it (wool or hairjwould be otherwise subjected" means that the duty on sorted wools (when separated otherwise than as to color and increased in value) shall be twice the duty to which the fleece in an unsorted condition shall be liable." The sorting or manipulation of wools made to evade lawful duties is a fraud on the law and sub jectsthe merchandise to the penal duties imposed. The board reverses the col leotor's decision in both of the cases. Against the Cattlemen. KINGEISSERN, O. T., Aug. 4.-On com plaints of Cheyenne and Arapahoe Indians in territorial courts apainst the Cragin Cat tle company, D. 1. Fant, Benjamin Bar land. William Quinton, Major Eldridge, James F.

The court held that all persons holding livb stock within the limits of the Cheyenne and Arapahoe reservations are subject to a pen alty of $1 per head and thatstook is subject to seizure and sale fgr payment of the peu alty. An order is now in the hands of the United States marshal, who will proceed at once to execute it. It covers 200,t0(X to 3:i0,000 heed of cattle, which, it is claimed, are now upon the reservation unlawfully. The Helena Whitoieelm . Sr. I'Arr,, Aug. 4.- [Special.] --H. C. Dahoke and George A. (Gilpatrick, of Hel ena, Mont., passed through this city yes terday en route to Chicago on bicycles. They sta:rted front Helena June 27, and when they reached this city their cyclomse tern registered 1,376 miles.

MECCA FOR MISMATEO, Young Mrs. Blaine, Madame do Stures and Others May Be Disappointed. A Dakota Judge Thinks They Ex peot to Abuse the Di vorce Law. Hence He May Refuse Them the Rellef They Seek From Fetters That Are Galling. Sioux FALLs, S. D.. Aug. 4.-A dynamite bomb Is about to be exploded under the divorce law of South Dakota by the position of Judge Aikons that the spirit of the law must be complied with, which will result in Mrs. J. G. Blaine Jr.'s failure to get a di vorce. The general public seems to be on aware of the facts pertaining to the ease with which divorces are granted in this new state. The law has been on the statute books for fifteen years and was enacted by the territorial legislature in its early days for the purpose of inducing immigration to the then sparsely settled prairies of South Dakota, and the act granting divorces in a very short period of.time contemplated that the applicant would remain a resident of the territory and contribute to building up the then thinly settled commonwealth. The framers of the law had little idea that the lords of old England and the nabobs of New England would make it a temporary residence for the purpose of perpetrating a fraud upon the laws of the state and the judges who presided over its courts. The result of the law is a surprise to the citizens, for after fifteen years of silence and unobservation it attracts applicants the minute South Dakota becomes a state, who come here simply to secure a divorce and then return to their former haunts. The various judges who have occupied the bench during the interim of fifteen years have allowed the law to run along without special notice until certain fair parties, such as Mrs. James G. Blaine, jr., Madame De Stures, a niece of John Jacob Astor, Mrs. Snyder, a relative of the Harpers of New York, Mrs. de Baun of New York, Madame de Silva of New York and Mrs. Hardy of Milwaukee, came here so that they might be freed from their marital relations, after having complied with the letter but not the spirit of the law. The presence of these parties has re sulted in an inquiry which shows that nine out of ten to whom divorces have been granted have come to the state for that purpose only. The conclusion reached by the judges of the state is that the spirit of the law has been diverted from its original purpose, and has converted the state, by fraud and imposition, into a Mecca for characters of easy virtue. Judge Aikens, whp presides over the second judicial circuit, in which the city of Sioux Falls, the ldrgest city in the state, is located, and in which the prominent parties already mentioned are awaiting their freedom from their assumed en thrallment, has already indicated to the bar here that the spirit of the law must be absolutely complied with before he will sign a decree absolving people from the ob ligations which they took before the mat rimonial altar. 'Ihe result of this will probably be that Mrs. James G. Blaine, Jr., and Mine. de Stures and all the others seek ing co take advantage of the loose Dakota statutes will be disappointed with the as surance that no person can misuse the statutes of Dakota for their personal inter sets. 1EDBONES VS. WHITES. Bloody Rioting at a Louisiana Bail road Camp. OnANGE, Texas., Anug. 4.-Belder Sanders, who has just returned from Lake Charles, La., confirmed the report of a riot at Look, Moore & Company's railroad. The last ac count he heard was from a wounded man who left the scene at four o'clock yesterday. He stated that fourteen men were killed and two missing. It was a free for-all fight between the "ltedbones" and "Whites." canders stated that many different reports were being circulated and nothing more authentic could be learned. Officers and physicians have gone to the scene. Another.account thit comes from West Lake, La., to the effect thiat the trou ble was caused by the breaking out of an old feud between a band of robbers known as the Asworth gang and cattlemen in that section. Thejreport of the fight sent last night and to-day was of a morning tight. In the after noon it was reported at the store down the road that "Rtedbones" desperadoes were mascaereing women, children and every one they came across at the camp. Learning this reinforcements went up from along, the line of the Calicasien. Vernont and Shreveport road. In going up T. T.

The Trust and Spreckles Engaged In a Hit ter War. NEw YORK, Aug. 4.-A bitter fight was be gun to-day by the sugar trust against Claus Spieckles, who hits been a thorn in the side of sugar refineries on this coast for many years. About ten days ago the president of the sugar trust was called away from the city by the fatal illness of his father, F. C. Havemover. While he was away the sugar trust uaintailied the price for granulated sugar, but Claus Spreekles announced a reduction of f one sixteenth of a cent per pound, cutting siri Ausly into the trade of the sugar trust. YesterdRay Havermayer returned atiln at once ordered the sugar trust price reduced one sixteenth of a cent below the out made by Spreckles. 'the latter to-day made another cut, bringing his price one-sixteenth of a cent below the price iaked by the trust.
