toward making thededicationa success.
They sealed a compact by which every
vestige of venom caused by the chii war
-was blotted out. Within the limits of this
grand historic place of pleasure for the
nation to-da v Lre upward of 5,000 people.
Among the throng were some of the
nation's heroes, and there were also
some of her highest officials Of Presi
dent Cleveland's Cabinet there were At
torney General Harmon, Secretary of the
Navj Herbert, Secretary of the Interior
Smith, and Postmaster General 'Wilson.
There were a baker's dozen of Governors
and hundreds of men of renown who took
part in the conflict between the North
and South.
The gathering on the stage as the cannon
began its booming the announcement of
the beginning of the exercises was one
that was probably never equaled in the
country, and the gathering of eicctalors
was worthy of it. They numbered thou
sands, who applauded their favorites as
they appeared. The most notable ar
rhal and reception was that which brought
together Gov. McKluley and Gen. James
Lougstreet, the Confederate general
A unique picture was the greeting be
tween Gov. Morton ,of New York, and his
successor Ju the Vice President's chair,
Sir Stevenson. There was a congestion
of greatness on the platform which almost
baffled the best efforts of Gens Fullerlon
and Bojuton to re ve, but flnnllj they
were all duly set in order and a semblance
of quiet secured.
In the absence of Secretary Lamont,
Yice-Frcsidcnt Stevouson presided. The
addresses of Gen. John M. Palmer, of
llliols, and Gen. John B. Gordon, of
Georgia, were preceded by the singing
of "America" and followed by "Auld
Lang Syne."
Gen. Gordon's thrilling close was the
signal for an outburst of applause last
ing several minutes, during which there
were calls from the spectators for Mc
Kinley and Morton, the programme hav
ing speeches from the visiting Governors
as the next in order. These were mingled
witli cries for Lungstrect, and that old
veteran, still erect and vigorous despite
his seventy-eight years, was Introduced
by Vice-President Steveuson. Before he
began, how e cr. Gen. Gordonagain claimed
the attention of the crowd. Holding aloft
his hand he said.

and band it dow&to posterity."
Turning to Attorney General Harmon, a
resident of Cincinnati, which was also
Gen. Lytle's home, Gen G ordorf presented
It to him Subsequently Capt. SilasMofort,
of Cincinnati, informed Gen. Harmon that
Gen Lytle's nephew, the son of his sister,
was present on the ground and Mr. Harmon
sent the precious relic to him Another rel
ative of Gen Lytle's, who was a soldier
also, was found to be present.
This incident having been closed. Gen
Longstreet made a short address, which, un
fortunately , was delivered In so low a tone
as to be inaudible, after the first few sen
tences, more than a dozen feet away.
Cries w ere renewed for favorite go ernors,
but Vlce-rresident Stevenson presented
Lieut. Gen. Schofield, who said:

Dope for Success in Full Elections.
Trenton, N. J., Sept. 19. The Repub
lican State convention met here to-day and
nominated John W. G riggs, of Union county,
ex State M-iiator, and a prominent lawyer,
for governor.
Because of the fact that the Republicans
are very hopeful of success this fall, the
convention attracted to the city more of
the rank and file of the party than has
been seen nt a sinillar gathering for over
twenty years, and there was a genuine
tffort on the part of half a dozen gentle
men to secure the coveted nomination,
which finally fell to Mr. Griggs on the
third ballot.
Ills chief competitor was ex Congress
man John Kcan.Jr , who was the candidate
agaiu-.t Gov. Werts thre-e years ago.
The others in the race were Ellas D.
Ward, president of the Prudoilal Insur
ance Company; State Senator loiter W.
Voorhees, of Union; State Senator Maurice
M. Rogers, of Camden, and Congressman
John J. Gardner, of Atlantic, all of them
having almost equal strength, with the
exception of Gardner, who polled only
twenty three votes on the first ballot, and
was then dropped.
Sheriff Toffcy, of Hudson, although not
a candidate, receded the vote of one Bur-,
Jington county delegate on each of the
three ballots. On the first ballot Griggs
was the leader with 294 votes to 207 for
Kean. There were 847 delegates and 424
votes were therefore required for a choice.
On the second ballot Griggs vote jumped to
33S, Kean getting 248.
During the progress of the third ballot
Griggs gained steadily and finally there
was a stampede, which resulted In his nomi
nation by acclamation.
Upon questions of national import, the
platform says:

Cap. Vinal, of the steamer Mortora,
In the course of an Interview to-day said
that at 11.15 o'clock last night, when
he was within two miles of the entrance
ot the harbor and going at a moderate rate
of speed, he saw ahead on. his, starboard
a green light, which he presumed was
that otka steamer leaving port.
"I ordered tin engine to slow dowii"
said Capt. vinal, "and proceeded on our
course, hearing two whistles from the
cruiser, to which we replied. Turning
Into the harbor and keeping In sight on
lir starboard the green light of the cruiser,
we whistled twice again, thus Indicating
that we were turning into the harbor,
when suddenly all the lights ot the
cruiser were put out.
"I Immediately ordered the engineer to
steam backward, but it was of no avail, ,
for the steamers collided. I ordered boats
to be lowered and life preservers to be
thrown overboard.
"After the collision we were entangled
with the Barcaetegul for a time, but this
situation endangered the Mortora as well
as the cruiser and I ordered the engines to
