The Vexed Questln of a MIItary Parade
Through the Heart of the City
CaroAao, Oct. 19.-The dedicatory cere
monies of the World's Columbian exposi
tlon were inaugurated to-day, beginning
with the reception and entertainment of
distinguished visitors, and followed this
evening by the formal inaugural of the re
eeption by eitizens to the guests of honor.
A pleasing feature was the Columbus day
celebration this afternoon by thousands of
school children throughout the atcity. Elab
orate arrangements were made to give the
ceremonies that official character which
should attend an enterprise of such inter
national and representative importance,
and the World's fair city was attired in
costumes of many colors. From every
important edifice in the city, from every
peak and pinnacle, from every balcony and
and window, were suspended colors invoked
for the adornment of the occasion. The
stars and stripes naturally predominated,
Lut the colors of all nations mingled in
producing a grand effect, though some
times the stars and stripes were committed
to .a triangle banner of terra cotta and
white, selected by the city for the occasion.
Portraits of Columbus were seen every
where and for the first time since the na
tional conventions the familiar features of
political leaders were pulled down and ob
soured by portraits of Columbus, Isabella
or George Washington. Every trainbrung
hundreds of visitors and many of the most
important participants in the official cere
monies are already on the ground.
Vice President Morton arrived yesterday.
To-day five special trains arrived over the
Pennsylvania road in quick sucnession,
bearing distinguished parties. Mem
bers of President Harrison's cab
inet, members of the United States
supreme court and members of the
diplomatic corps occupied three of them.
'They were met by the World's fair commit
tee and conducted to their hotels, where
Inieheon awaited them. Later in the day
many of them paid a visit to the World's
fair grounds. Gov. John Young Brown, of
Kentucky, and Gov. Boyd, of Nebraska, ar
rived this morning accompanied by their
respective staffs, followed latter by Govy.
Burke. of Noath Dakota, and his staff. Ad
jutant General Stryker, of New Jersey,
came as the representative of Gov. Abbott.
Gov. Boies, of Iowa, Gov. F aneis, of Mis
souri, and Gov. Toole, of Montana are haee.
Fred Douglass is also among the arrivals.
Police officials and detectives from many
other cities are arriving here to assist the
local police in looking after crooks. Among
to-dar's arrivals are Capt. Moyster, Ser
gennt Swigart and Detective Itavenekamp.
T'o be added to the prominent eople al
ready mentioned, as being here, must be
Cardinal Gibbons and party, consistin , of
Archbishop Satalli. papal delegate, Mon
signor O'Connell and others.
To a ball to-night 4,000 prominent citi
zens were bidden to participate in a recep
tion tendered to the president, vice-presi
dent, ex-eresidents of the United States,
repsentatives of foreign governments, gov
ernors of states and territories, and other
distinenished citizens. It took place at the
Auditorium ball room and early in the
evening brilliant scenes were witnessed
thereabouts. A dense crowd of people were
closely packed for henre viewing the bril
liant decorations and notables as they ar
rived. Once within the great auditorium
the first impression was resulting from a
flood of light almost dazzling to the unac
customed eve. The on tain was raised and
the flooring extended over the entire or
chestra pit, smooth and tempting to danc
ers. The lower tier of boxes extended in a
circle around the rear of the stage, above
which was located the orchestra. The
silken banner of Spanish royalty was sus
pended directly over the center of thestage.
On either side and immediately over the
boxes were banners, each containing the
initials of Ferdinand and Isabella. In
front of the organ was displayed large por
traits on a shield senrmounted by a stand of
colo:s, the stars and stripes in the cen
ter, flanked on either side by the flags of all
The corresponding position on the south
side bore the shield of Spain, surmounted
by Spanish colors. On either side were the
flats of every nation in the old world, the
colors of Spain and Italy being given the
preference. Of flowers there were none
among the decorations, but from Alabama
had been brought a cur-load of wild smilax,
which festooned the faces of the balcony
and gallery, and so the great hall greeted
the comming throng.
Soon after the opening of the doors those
responsible for the affair appeared, and the
ladlie took up position to receive guests.
People in balconies assumed an air of ex
pectancy and the Marine bank broke forth
into ama oh. Simultaneonsly Congress
man Durborruw, with Vice-Presldent Mor
tori alon his arm, ascended from the main
foyer and followed by a procession of offi
cial .dignitaries, proceeded with stately
tread toward the ladies and gentle
men who were to receive them.
(Geian. and Mrs. Miles were Lrat in the line.
The distinguished visitors were presuented
to each lady and gentlenoen in tonn. After
the vice-presiderent came the justices of the
supreme court and members of the cabinet.
Ex-President Hayes followed and was suc
ceeded by Hon. Lambert Tree who escorted
the members of the diplomatic corps, each
arrayed with all the insignia and
gihtter of his official position. Then
cante Cardinil Gibbons and Cardinal Sna
toli. After the reception from the balcony
and gallery and upper boxes came guests
and the the kaleidoscopic soene soon re
solved into a promenaue. Two military
oflicers led the grand march, into which
the morvug throng merged itself. At the
cloes of the march the orchestra took up a
strain Bfloating into a quadrille, which set
hnudreds of feet in rythmio motion. 'J he
dances programme followed. At mid
night the supper room was opened and the
general pleasure of the ball increased by
viands and delicaties.
Amcong the distinguished guests at the
reception tonight, we.e Vice President and

Railroads to-day were nearly swamped in
the tremendous rush of people. Extra 3
trains were counted only by the dozens and I
every regular had extra cars attached.
Probably never since the invention of the
locomotive were roads so rushed. Visitors
to the World's fair grounds to-day were I
well repaid by the scene of color, activity c
and animation. The grounds in the vicin- i
it, of the mines and mining and transpor
tation buildings swarmed with soldiers,
additional troops arriving every hour. The I
Iowa militia arrived in three special trains s
over the Burlington road. They are under I
command of Adjt.-Gan. George Green.
Orders were published to-day constituting
Jackson park a military encampment under
the name of Camp Harrison. The com- I
mand of all forces at the camp was given to a
Brig.-Gen. Eugene A. Car.
Business on the Chicago river was rushed
to-day to get boats out of port before the
festivities. Little will be done on the river
during the rest of the week. Indications I
point toward excellent weather for the cere- I
monies. 'lho naval display Friday will be
confined wholly to the United States vessels
in por .
The programme of exercises in the pub
lie schools included the reading of Presi- a
dent Harrison's proclamation, raising of
the stars and stripes, salute of the flag by
the pupils reciting in concert the pledge of
allegiance to the flag, singing *'America,"
reading a portion of the socripture contain- I
ing acknowledgment of a divine being, a

patriotic verses, reading an historic essay,
delivering of declamations and addresses
on the subject, "Menning of the Four Cen- I
t cries," and singing various patriotic songs
STATE TROOPS WILL PARADE.
Gen. Miles May Keep Hif Regulars In the
CHnCoao, Oct. 19.-A proposition made by
Gen. Miles to have a night military parade
Saturday next was not received with much
favor at the city hall. Gen. Miles called
on Mayor Washburne to-day to discuss the
night parade plan. The mayor's objection
was that the streets could not be sufficiently
illuminated and that the crowds on the
street being so large the work could not be
satisfactorily done.. Whatever the outcome
of the above project there will be a military
parade Saturday in the public streets when
everybody, whether governor or ordinary
citizen, can see. This was positively de
cided at the conference to-day between
Gen. Ruse, Gen. Fitzsimmons, Col. Koch
and others. Aside from federal soldiers, I
14.000 state troops will participate, making
the largest massing of national guards on
record. In an interview this evening Gen.
Miles is quoted as making this tart talk:
"I want to say that the pressof Chicago has
insulted the vice president, the supreme I
court and all other distinguished men. The
papers say the peopleof Chicago don't care
a continental about seeing those hundreds
of distinguished visitors as they are es
corted from the auditorium to Jackson
park, but will rather see a lot of infantry
marching at funeral pace. As a matter of
fact the parade from the auditorium, con
eisting of distinguished guests in carriages,
esco ted by 1,600 cavalry and artillery, will
be a fine military display."
20.000 Lads In Line.
CrNCINwATI, Oct. 19.-Twenty thousand
boys from the publie schools paraded the
streets in honor of Columbus day this after
noon. The youngsters were all provided
with uniform caps. Each one carried a
small American flag, producing an electri
cal effect. The order observed in the par
ride was better than that in an ordinary
procession of men.
A Carpenter's Carelessess.
WEST WINiTED, Conn., Oct. 19.-Eight
hundred public school pupils assembled in
the rink to-night to practice a chorns of
of national airs for the big Columbus day
celebration. Tempoarv seates were erected
in tiers to the height of fifteen feet. The
first four hundred had been seated when
the rfive top rows of seats collapsed, letting
the children fall to the floor in a heap.
The wreck and screams caused a panic
among the others. A crowd was quickly
on the spot and the children rescued, some
with broken arms, legs, collarbones, and
otherwise hurt. and spme unconscious.
None were fatally hurt, however. The
community is greatly excited and accese
the carpenter of careless construction.
There are threats of lynching Curtis, who
did the job. while many law suits are in
store for him.

NAivrr.rt, Tenn., Oct. 19.-rThe track
was a trifle heavy. It was nearly five
o'clock before Nancy Haniks apleared for a
tilt against time and the atmespherre was
raw and damn,. Under the conditions
judges placed 2:06 as the best time that could
be made. But once more the little mare
was equal to an unexpected performance.
Going away at the first attempt the quar

1:0~2t(. Then Doble gave her free rein
and covering the third buarter in :l0'4
she was at the cole in 1:82).. Heavy foot

Masterly Addrees to the Voters
That Can Not Fail to
Prof. Mahoney and Hon. W. M. Blekford
-Miss Knowles at Missoula--seator
Matte at Livingston.
GRAT FALLS, Oct. 19.--[8pscial.]-The
democrats held a suocessful and enthusias
tic rally at the opera house to-night. The
issues of the campaign were set forth in a
elear and forcible manner by the distin
guilshed candidate for congress, who held
the attention of his audience for nearly an
hour. He was followed by Prof. Mahoney,
candidate for superintendent of publio in
struetion, and Hon. W. M. Biokford. All
were warmly received and closely listened
to. Before speaking the fambeau club
paradel the principal streets and made a
splendid appearance, evoking merited ap
plause, and escorted the speakers to the
opera house. which was already full. The
decorated stage was occupied by prominent
democrats, inoluding a veteran named
Jewell, who voted for Jackson. W. G.
Downing presided, and in a
brief speech introduced Mr. Dixon,
who received an ovation. He
prefaced his address by showing that many
of the reforms demanded by the populists
had been championed a long time by the
democrats. The isens is between the old
parties, and populists will find more assist
ance in the ranks of democracy than with
the republicans. Three-fourths of the time
since the war the republicans have had en
tire control of the government and have
legislated in favor of the few against the
many and must be held responsible and not
allowed to escape the issues.
H e took up the mineral land bill and
showed how he had labored in the commit
Itee on the same and when finally it came
before the house under the five minute rule
the man who opposed consideration was
Julius C. Burrows, a republican, who sno
ceeded in stopping its passage. In the com
mittee nine democrats favored the bill and
the four republicans wanted a compromise
measure. He pledged himself the coming
session to do everything in his power to
have the land taken from the corporation
and to accept no compromise.
He referred at length to the silver ques
tion and read igures to demonstrate that
since the demonetization of silver when
ever a free coinage bill came before the
senate a majority of democrats voted for
and t1aasjority of republicans voted against
it. , The address made a great impression,
Sas it was logical and free from all bitter
J. C. Mahoney spoke next and received
plenty of applause. Judge Bickford closed
the meeting with an able exposition of the
i tariff question, which was unanswerable.
Cheers were given for Dixon and Collins
I and the national ticket.

MIsso.LA, Oct. 19. -[Special.]- The

house was crowded to the doors, standing
t room was filled, and many could not get in.
a Bonfires were bailt on the street corners,
but the musical feature, formerly a part of
a political meetings, was omitted. Miss
a Sallie MacLay, people's party candidate for
county superintendent of scohools, spoke a
few minutes, and was followed by Miss
Knowles. She spoke for nearly two hours,
and was occasionally applauded. She
commenced by asserting that the silver
question was the prominent issue of the
day, and compared the silver planks of the
1 parties. She confined her remarks almost
entirely to this subject, and claimed that
the prospects were favorable for the suo
cess of the people's party. At the close of
her address she appealed to both the ladies
and gentlemen for support in the coming
election, she being the only woman that
d had ever been nominated for suno an

sented a handsome appearance. Hon.
John T. Smith was first introduoed and
spoke in a convincing and interesting
c manner upon local and national issues. He

InrNArPOLIs. OOt. 19.-The national col
ored protective sssociation has issued an
address to the colored voters of the United
Staters, of which the following is a synopsis:
S"Since the mantle of citizenship fell upon
Sus the democratio party, by diverse nieans,

provision which is intended to secure us in

a free ballot and a fair count have become

N.w Yot, Oct. 19.l-Cooper Union was
crowded tonight with all audience anxious
to hear Wayne MaoVeagh, who spoke under
the luspices of the demooratio club. The
k prinoipal object, MoVeagh said, he had iii
- the present campaign was to persuade intel
, ligent men that the republican party has so
radically changed its standards of public
Lsotion and policies of legislation as to
merit the same of the "revolationary"
party. . Quay, he said, wars eeclated
y thleaders of the republican party to
manage the campaign in 188H because he
was known to be without political scruples.
The McKinley bill MacVeagh called an
"unrelieved and unmitigated injury to
every workingman in the nation, and to
every other citizen niess he is in receipt
of some portion of its generous bountles."
In closing he arraigned the republican
party as the monopolistlc party.
Address to Colered Voters.
INDIArFAPOLA, Oct. 19.--The following is
a synopsis of the address to colored voters
by the National Negro Tariff Reform
league: "The negro is completely shut oat
from industrial and manufacturing institn
tions where skilled labor is demanded. He
is doomed to the most servile and least re
munerative work. Experts are the balance
wheel of government prosperity." The
doonment then proceeds to argue from the
statistical reports of experts that the ne
gro derives no direct benefit from high
protective tariff, and it is, therefore re
solved, that "we, as tariff reformers, en
dorse the candidacy of Grover Cleveland
and Adlai N. Stevenson, as representatives
of the canse of tariff reform."
The document closes with a resolution of
sympathy for the president in his affilia
Gov. Campbell in New York.
Naw Yocx, Oct. 19.-The assembly room
of the wholesale dry goods democratic club
was packed at noon by a crowd of business
men drawn there by the announcement that
E.-Gov, Campbell, of Ohio, was to speak.
The governor took up the letter of accept
ance of Whitelaw Reid and attacked the
principal points. Referring to Labor Com
missioner Peak's reports he said the labor
commissioner of Ohio had alse made a re
port but that the republican government
suppressed it. He said the republicans had
been challenged to publish the report, and
were defied. The state report did not indi
cate any reduction of wages. He prophesied
democratic success in Ohio by saying the
democrats would publish the report after
Blalae Avoids Carter.
New YORK, Oct. 19.-The closing days of
the campaign at republican national head
quarters are very busy. Mr. Hahn, in
charge of the speakers' bureau, wees over

e make arrangements for a western tour.
Whitelaw Reid and Depew willt address a

A Cruise In the North.
e WAsmHun oo, Oct. 19.-Capt. M. A.
r Healy, in a long report to the seoratary of
It the treasury, dated Ounalaska, Sept. 25, of
I. the cruise of the steamer Bear in north
Arctic waters, says that the steamer estab
lished the station projected by the interior
d department at Port Clarence, and started
with 177 deer and great promise of success
in the work of introducing reindeer into
Alaska. The schooner Mary Hume made
* an extraordinary catch of thirty-nine
a whales during the spring. The establish
ment of a refugee station at Point Darrow,
with a constant supply of provisions, has
encouraged wbaleis togo farther north into
more profitable places in pursuit of their
trade, with the knowledge that in case of
r accident they will not be left to the mercy
of an arctic winter without food or shelter.
Captain Healy's efforts to prevent the in
troduction of spirituous liquors into Alaska
has been unusually successful, despite the
great extent of territory patrolled, and he
a is of the opinion that he has driven the
g liquor tratfic out of the country. The Bear
will assist the United States steamer Adams
in guarding the seal islands until Dec. 1.

addressed those present. He said the Butte,
Anaconda & Pacific railroad would be built
as rapidly as possible; that the objective
point was not Missoula, but the coal fields
near Tobacco plains, on the line ot British
Columbia; that Butte and Anaconda now
used sixty carloads of coal daily;
that cordwood was becoming more expen
sive, and that by the time the road was
completed these two points would use 100
carloads daily, equivalent to five trains,
which would be sufficient in itself to insure
a profit on the investment; that the country
through which the road will pass now pro
