Bloody Fields of Chattanooga and
Chickamauga Dedicated as Na
- tional Pleasure Grounds.
Doubtful if the World Ever Before Saw
Such a Scene as that Witnessed at
Chiokamauga To-day Stir
ring Ceremonies.
Chattanooga, Tenn., Sept. 19. The
bloodiest battle field the world ever bbw was
formally dedioated here to-day as a pleas
ure park for the edification and enjoy
ment of the American people for all time.
It was Chiokamauga, whose ravines and
mountain sides were strewn with nearly
30,000 dead and wounded.
The dedication ' was oonducted by the
men who fought in that awful strife.
The two generals, with silver gray hair,
who headed the thousands of men in the
affray on opposite sideB, made the princi
pal epeeohes At the dedication. They
were Generals John M. Palmer and John
B. Gordon.
It is doubtful if the world ever before
saw another such a scene as that at Chiok
amauga to-day. It was witnessed by no
less than 50,000 people from the north
and south, at least half of whom took
part in the bloody oivil war.
The first event, ot the day was a display
of arms by battery "F," fourth U. 8. ar
tillery. There was a battalion regimental
drill, showing the new taotics and
field movements, under the command
of Col. Holland.
These exeroises at arms were of great
interest to the veterans, who expressed
the belief that each tactics would have
fallen as timothy before the mower if
placed against those adopted during
Vice President A.. E. Stevenson pre
sided over the dedicatory exeroises. He
was introduced by Gen. John S. Fnller
ton, ohairman of the Chiokamauga and
Chattanooga national park, and greeted
with loud applause.
The great natnral area on Snodgrass
Hill, selected by the national commission
for the exercises, was so arranged that
the tens of thousands of auditors could
here the addresses throughout.
By way of beginning there was n na
tional salute of forty-four guns by the
artillery, followed by the "Star Spangled
Banner," played by one of the O. S. in
fantry bands.
It was cheered to the eono Dy tne vei-
erans of the blue and of the gray, and
many grizzled veterans shed tears of joy.
When tne applause ceaseu, vice rreoi-
dent Stevenson made a brief address ap
propriate to the occasion.
Prayer was ottered Dy nigni nev. oianop
Gailer, of Tennessee.
"America" was sung Dy tne auaience
accompanied by the bands.
The volume of sound rolled up as a
great tidal wave and long before the song
ended tears were coursing aown me uueejis
f thousands of veterans.
Gen. John M. Palmer, the venerable
senator from Illinois, made the first ded
icatory address. His voice at first had a
tremulous sound, but ne Deoame granaiy
eloquent as he advanced and frequently
was applanded. -
Another patriotic tone toiioweo. ueu.
Palmer's speech.
Then the battle scarred veteran oi t.ne
Confederacy, whom Lee oalled his "right
arm," John B. Gordon, of Georgia, was
introdnoed. He was greeted with no less
applause than was accorded Gen. Palmer
and be spoKe witn tuny as moon eumuo-
asm, feeling and patriotism.

oar with her and started toward Market
street. Later he was seen on a Valencia
street car in company with a young lady
answering Blanche Lnmont's description
by Mrs. Crosset, who ha9 known Durrant
intimately for years.
The evidence that has been introduced
relative to Durrani's whereabouts on the
afternoon of April 3 is directly contra
dictory to his statement made on the
night of his arrest, that he had not seen
the murdered girl after he left her on the
way to sohool on the morning of the 3rd.
Martin Quinlan, an attorney, took the
stand and supplied another link to that
furnished by the evidenoe of Mrs. Crosset,
testifying that he saw Durrant and a
yonng lady walking on Bartlett street
toward Emanuel churoh about ten min
utes past 4 on the 3rd of last April. The
witness adhered to his story and refused
to be led into the slightest contradiction.
David Clark, who acoompanied Quinlan
on the visit to St. Luke's hospital late on
the afternoon of April 3, was then called
and corroborated all the previous witness
had stated regarding his movements with
Clark. His testimony narrated in detail
the story told by Quinlan.

southeast of the starting point in a dense
The Edam foundered and the Turkistan
was lost to view in the fog. The captain,
crew and passengers of the Edam took to
the boats immediately after the coilirj
and were picked np by the Trawler.
The Trawler-Vulture was on the fishing
grounds, fifteen miles in from the Eddy

Those on the Vulture heard a great
blowing of whistles and then a terrific
crash. The Vulture immediately went
alongside the steamship Edam, which
was rapidly filling.
Capt. Brunsma requested tbe Vulture
to stand by. The ship's boats were
quickly lowered and the passengers
helped into them without acoident.
The passengers were greatly alarmed,
bnt there was no panic.
A majority went on dcok without hav-
ng taken time to dress.
The women andohildren were the hrst

was smooth.
The stoamer Turkistan, which did not
