The President's Debut in the Hawkeye State. Governor Boies Welcomes Him to His Realm. Reunion With Brother and Sister at Ottumwa. A Visit to the Big Coal Palace—The Presi dent's Facetious Remarks—On to Kansas. Associated Press Dispatches, l Ottumwa, lowa, Oct. 9. —At 3 o'clock this morning the presidential party reached this city. A delegation, headed hy Hon. J. G. Hutchison, ex-Republican candidate for governor of lowa, and Senator P. G. Ballingall, president of the Ottumwa Coal palace, met the party at Galesburg last evening and escorted them to Ottumwa. It is due to the fore thought of Superintendent Wilson and Manager Bishop of the Burlington road, that a pleasant night's rest was afforded the president, by the train being sidetracked at a quiet little station near Ottumwa. until daylight. Despite the early hour, almost the entire population of the thriving young town of Ottumwa turned out to see the president. In this city resides the president's elder sistei, Sally, wife of T. J. Davins, an old citizen. John S. Harrison, the president's gray-haired elder brother, who is in business in Kansas City, met the party here, and from the depot, he and Davins escorted their distinguished relative to Davin's residence, where the family breakfasted together. Early in the forenoon the weather he came unfavorable. Rain began to fall, but it did not seriously mar the ceremonies which took place under the roof of the Ottumwa coal palace and lowa industrial exposi tion. At 8 o'clock President Harrison, under the escort of Governor Boies and Sen ator Ballingall, was escorted through the coal palace. To the president it was full of interest, and his surprise and ad miration were thoroughly evidenced by his numerous inquiries. After the forenoon visit to the coal palace, the president repaired to the res idence of his sister, where lunch was taken. The rain had by this time ceased. At 1 o'clock a parade took place, consisting of state and other officials, military and civil societies, reviewed by the president. At 2 o'clock the public ceremonies of the day took place in the presence of an enthusiastic audience of about ten thousand people. Governor Boies for mally welcomed President Harrison to lowa, in a short speech, calling his at tention to the evidences of the superior skill and prosperity of the people of lowa, as displayed in the construction and exhibit of the coal palace, and concluded with an assurance of high regard for the president personally as well as politi cally. Alter the enthusiasm which greeted the president's appearance had some what subsided, he responded to Governor Boies' address, in a brief speech, thank ing the lowans for their hearty welcome, and assuring them of the pleasure it afforded him. _ While the president was speaking by some accident the water of an arti ficial waterfall immediately behind him was turned on, and its" roar almost drowned his voice. "I have contended," said he, "with brass bands, but I never before have been asked to speak within the roar of Niagara." [Laughter and cheers.] The water was turned ott', and the president said : "I had supposed there were limitations upon the freedom of this meeting, both as to Governor Boies and myself, and that no political sugges tion of any Bort was to be introduced at this friendly concourse of American citi zens. But I think both of us have good cause for grievance against the prohibi tionists for interrupting us with this argument for cold water." Chariton, lowa, Oct. 9.—At 9 o'clock tonight the presidential party left Ot tumwa, for St. Joseph, Mo., which will be reached at 7 o'clock tomorrow morn ing. Atchison will be reached about 8 o'clock tomorrow morning, and Topeka at 9:30. Ac the latter city the presi dential party will be entertained until S o'clock p. m. Ottumwa never saw such a crowd be fore as was here today. A score of special trains piled visitors into the city, and at the time of the procession this morning there must have been 40,000 people out. One of the beautiful incidents of the parade occurred at the Adams school, where 3,000 school chil dren congregated to see the president. He bowed his acknowledgements to the happy children, who each waved a flag, and their 3,000 voices were uplifted in the familiar old hymn " America." During the afternoon a large crowd gathered around the train, aud the president was again compelled to show himself and speak a few words. He said such spontaneous greetings as these gave him courage in work that was often very wearisome and often very full of worry. They helped him to believe that the great masses of the people have no other interest than that the government shall be well adminis tered and that public offices shall be filled by competent, conscientious and honest men. A public reception was tendered the president at the coal palace, and from 8 to 9 o'clock he shook hands with thousands of people. The orator of the evening was Congressman Grosvenor, of Ohio, whose address was an excellent one, well adapted to the occasion. SOUTHERN HOT-BLOODS. Senator George Has a Spat With Captain Few ell. Jackson, Miss., Oct. 9. —The proceed ings of the constitutional convention were enlivened today by an exciting colloquy between United "States Senator George and Captain Fewell, of the ju diciary committee. The senator had severely critfcT3cea some of the work of tbe committee, and the captain, rising, eaid the committee was composed of the ablest lawyers in the itate, and he could not see the motive for George's attack, except in accepting popularity at the expense of his profes sional brethren. Senator George ex citedly said this was false, whereupon Captain Fewell retorted that he had strong reason to suspect that the sen ator's motive for the attack, was that the committee was composed of able lawyers. Senator George replied in an excited manner, and the chair had great difficulty in calming the excited gentle men, i Sent Back to Victoria.

HARNESS RECORDS SMASHED TO SMITHEREENS AT TERRE HAUTE. Nelson Brings the Stallion Record Down to 2:11 1-4—Hal Pointer Makes the Fastest Mile Ever Paced or Trotted in a Race, Terre Haute, Oct. 9.—The three fastest harness records in the world is the mark hung up to-day on the Terre Haute track. The fastest stallion record, the fastest mile ever paced or trotted in a race, 2:09?4 ; and the three fastest heats in a race, 2:09%, 2:l2}_, and 2:13. It was a perfect autumn day with a gentle breeze blowing, and the track was very fast. Attendance, over 10,000. The great attraction was the announce ment that Nelson would go to beat Ax tell's time (2:12) made over this track last fall. After a warming up heat, the stallion started to beat the record. The first quarter was made in 32 seconds, the half in 1:04%, three-quarters in 1:36>2. Cheer after cheer went up as Nelson flashed under the wire in 2:11%.

Never in the history of harness contests did two. such ani mals fight it out; not a move of one but was checked by the other's. The geld inga went locked under the wire, Point er having it by a throat-latch. There was no need to hang out the time to en thuse the crowd; it was wild in the real ization that the fastest time in harness had been made, The time by quarters was : 31%, I:o4'i, 13tj>£, 2:09%.

Like Others are Prone to Disagree. In Wordy Warfare They Some times Indulge. Soft Answers Not Always Used by the Reverend Sirs. The American Board of Foreign Missions at Loggerheads—Bad Financial Management. Associated Press Dispatches. I Minneapolis, Oct. 9. —The most inter esting paper to come before the Amer ican Board of Foreign Missions, and one which called forth an acrimonious de bate, was the report of the committee of ninf> appointed a year ago to examine into the method of the admin istration of the officials of the board in Boston, especially the methods employed by the home secre tary in ascertaining the qualifications of candidades for the missionary field. The chairman of the committee is Astor Walker, of New York, and associated with him are others representing the two great wings of the board, but not extremists in any sense. The report made, detailed the showing of the finances of the board, and compared what the board has received yearly for its work, with what is given to other large benevolent societies of the church. The figures showed that while the contributions to these other bodies had been increasing year by year as the church grew, there had been practically no increase in the donations to the American Board. This state of affairs, the paper argued, showed dissatisfaction in the churches, ending in quarrels that have come as the result of the present system of administration. The report, which was a lengthy one, was summed up in the form of resolu tions at the conclusion. These provide that a committee on the treasurer's re port be appointed by the board at the annual meeting next previous to the meeting at which the committee is call ed on to set; that the treasurer's report be sent as soon as ready to each member of the committee: that [the by-lawß be amended to provide that the auditors shall annually employ an expert for con firming the treasurer's reports and accounts; that there be a substantial in crease of the force employed by the board to bring the interests" of its' mis sions and the cause it represents before the churches contributing to its support. The resolutions further provide with reference to missionary appointments, that questions 1 and 2 for candidates be amended to read : Question I—What1 —What are your views re specting each of the leading doctrines of scripture commonly held by the churches sustaining this board? In an swering this question you may use your own language or refer to any creeds of acknowledged writ. Question 2—Have you any view at variance with these doctrines or any views of church government, which would prevent four cordial co-operation with the missionaries of this board? These questions being so amended, all applications for apnointment shall be made as now to the corresponding secretary of the board. Communications shall be presented forthwith to the prudential committee. In case the committee desire further scrutiny into the theo logical opinions of the candidates, it shall be held through an interview with the committee as a body, or if this is not practicable, with a sub*-committee as a body, consisting in part of laymen. At such examination the doors shall be open for the presence of any member of the board or personal friend of the candidate. The debate on this matter was a most animated one. Dr. Joseph Cook opened the attack on the paper, and was replied to by Dr. Quint. Then the venerable Dr. Thompson, of Boston, for many years chairman of the prudential com mittee, severely criticized the methods of the committee of nine, and took ex ceptions to the report as reflecting against the secretary and prudential committee. Dr. Walker replied warmly that his committee had abundant evi dence for the ground it had taken, but had preferred to suppress it. However, since Dr. Thompson had precipitated matters he would make it public. He then read a series of letters regarding certain young lady students in Wellesley college who were rejected as missionaries some years ago. He then referred to them to show that their rejection was most unfortute and improper, and had effectually shut off Wellesley college as a source of mission ary supply. The home secretary, Dr. Alden, then read a personal letter defending himself and the existing method, and criticising severely the committee of nine. The members of the committee re plied, and by this time the debate had grown so acrimonious that President Stom cut it off. After further talk the resolutions summarized above, were adopted unan imously to the satisfaction of all except the extremists, sr. Noble, of Chicago, who accepted the resolutions, protested against any approval of the re port itself, and presented a resolution to that effect, which was adopted without particular objection. Thus the curious result was presented of an action which seemed to cast a doubt and re flection on the committee of nipe and its methods, while adopting unani mously all its practical suggestions. Both sides seem to have the impression that they have won a glorious victory. BAY CITY POLITICS. More Nominations Made By Democrats and Kepublicans.

ONE OF COMMISSIONER BLACK'S DECISIONS REVERSED. Prisoners Who Enlisted in the Rebel Ser vioe and Deserted to the Union Lines, Entitled to Place on the Pension Rolls. Washington, Oct. 9.—Assistant Secre tary Bussey has rendered in the case of Russell S. Cole, of Company E, First New York veteran cavalry, a decision that defines the status of prisoners of war, who, having enlisted in the rebel army to escape imprisonment.returned to their own command and made applica tion for pensions. The decision rescinds I 'he ruling made by Commissioner Black ' May 25,' 1885, in which the commission er held that, regardless of circumstances and of his motives, a prisoner of war so enlisting in the rebel service, even as a device of escape from star vation and imprisonment, should be held as having "voluntar ily" aided the rebellion, and be debarr ed from pension. After presenting the full legal aspects of the question the assistant secretary says : "The depart ment must be controlled in all cases coming before it for adjudication, by the fundamental rule that the rights of a soldier and citizen alike can never be taken away nor forfeited, except by the express terms of law, the actual and obvious meaning of which should be taken without resort to subtle and forc ed questions. I respectfully overrule the former decision of your office, and grant the pension sought." WINTER SET IN. The Period of Snows Begun in the Slerrus.

I Dublin, Oct. 9. —The hearing against the police for assaults upon a number of persons at the court house in Tipperary on the occasion of the opening of the trial of Dillon and O'Brien, commenced in that place today. Timothy Healy opened the ease for Harrison, a member of the house of commons, who was se verely injured. Healey declared that on the occasion in question, for every adult in the crowd outside of the court "house there were four armed policemen. He told of the assault on Harrison. The latter then took the stand and testified that there were fewer than fifty civilians outside the court house when he arrived, while there was a large force of policemen on each side of the gates. The policemen used great and unneces sary violence. Col. Caddell addressed the police, saying something to the effect that they must go in and out of the gates and not make a disturbance. This command not being obeyed, wit ness asked the policemen why they dis obeyed orders. Then the assault was made upon him. During' the dis turbance he saw a constable strike and fell Sheehy. The civilians threw no stones and struck no blows, except in Earrying blows from the policemen's atons. In opening the case, Healy asked that the ordinary justices should be replaced by five resident magistrates of the bench. The application waß refused. While O'Brien was giving evidence, Healy questioned him regarding the photographs he had taken. The pre siding magistrate ruled this irrelevant. A discussion ensued, at the end of which Healy told O'Brien to leave the witness box. All of the complainants and their friends left the court room, and after the refusal of a request to adjourn on account of the constitution of the bench, the summons were withdrawn. Swiss Disorders.
