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.

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.

delegation, 150 strong, came next, under
command of John H. Welch. 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

kissed several little girls who ran out to

As New York swept around the corner
with a splendid band and drlum corps, their
armed guards for stalrters, with their gloam

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

presenting you this badge. We ask you to
accept it as a token of the esteem, admira

you and your family joy, remind you

sacred and stainless war for union and lib

kept between yourselves and comrades not
only the touch of elbow but the touch of

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.]

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.
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.

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

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

Ausly into the trade of the sugar trust.
YesterdRay Havermayer returned atiln at once
