Associated Press Dispatches.
Mbnlo Park, Cal., April 29.—Presi
dent and Mrs. Harrison and party left
San Francisco at 9 o'clock this morning
for Palo Alto, on their special train,
accompanied by Mayor Sanderson and a
committee of San Franeiaco citizens.
Short stops were made at San Mateo
and Redwood City, where large crowds
had gathered. The president briefly
addressed them. At Belmont, the ca
dets of the Reid school and pupils of the
public schools were drawn up. The
train did not stop, bat the president
from the rear platform bowed his ac
knowledgment of their cheers. Menlo
Park was reached at 10 minutes after 10
o'clock. Senator and Mrs. Stanford, Sen
ator Felton, Gov. and Mrs. Mark ham
and a party of friends were waiting at
the station with carriages. The presi
dent, accompanied by others, then vis
ited the Palo Alto stock farm and exam
ined the blooded horses in the stables,
including' the famous stallions Piedmont
and Electricity, and afterward paid a
visit to the university.
San Jose, April 29. —Tbe presidential
party arrived here at 4 o'clock this af
ternoon. A national salute was fired,
and the large crowd gathered at the sta
tion, cheered lustily. The visitors were
escorted to the Hotel Vendomo, where
an address of welcome was made by
Mayor Rucker, and responded to by the
president, as follows:
"Mr. Mayor and Fellow Citizens : I
am again surprised by this large out
pouring of my friends, and by the
respectful interest which they evince. I
cannot find words to express'the delight
which I have felt, and which those who
jonrney with me have felt, as we have
observed the beauty, and more than all,
t«e comfort and prosperity which char
acterize the great state of California. I
am glad to observe here, as I have else
where, that my old comrades of the
great war for the anion, have turned out
to witness afresh by this demonstration
their love for the flag and their venera
tion for American institutions.
My comrades, I greet you every
one affectionately. X don*»* »»•*
that every loyal state has representatives
here of that great army that subdued
the rebellion and brought home the flag
in triumph. I hope that yon have found
in this flowery and prosperous land, in
the happy homes which you have built
up here, in the wives and children that
grace your fireside, a sweet contrast to
those times of peril and hardship which
you experienced in the army, and I
trust above all that under these genial
and kindly influences you still maintain
that devotion to our institutions, and
are teaching it to the children that shall
take your places. We often speak of the
children following in the footsteps of
their fathers. A year ago, nearly, in
Boston, at the review of the Grand
Army of the Republic, after those thou
sands of veterans, stricken with
years and labor, had passed along,
a great army, nearly as large, came on
with the swinging step that character
ized you when you carried the flag from
your home to the field. They were the
sons of veterans, literally marching in
their fathers' steps, and so I love to
think that in the hands of this genera
tion that is coming on to take our places,
oar institutions are Bale, and the honor
and glory of the flag will be maintained.
We may quietly go to our rest when God
shall call us, in the full assurance that
His favoring providence will follow us,
and that in your children valor and
sacrifice for the flag will always mani
fest themselves on every occasion. Again
thanking you for your presence and
friendly interest, I must beg you to ex
cuse further speeches, as we must
journey on to other scenes like this.
Good bye, and God bless you, com
A street parade followed, and visits
were made to the High school, Normal
school, Notre Dame convent, and other
educational institutions. The buildings
along the route were handsomely dec
orated, and the president and ladies
received beautiful tributes,
Del Monte, Cal., April 29.—After
leaving San Jose, the first stopping place
was Gilroy. A great crowd was gathered
at the station, and the president's ap
pearance oa the rear platform was greet
ed with cheers. The mayor made an
address of welcome, and the president
responded briefly.
Another short stop was made at Pa
jaro. The people of this village turned
out en masse, and greeted the president
with genuine enthusiasm. He was wel
comed by the mayor, and made a brief
response. When he concluded he was
presented by representative citizens, a
large basket of native strawberries, spec
imens of beet sugar in fancy vials, and a
profusion of beautiful flowers. A feature
of the decorations at this station was a
large-sized polar bear, made of pure
white flowers.
The presidential 'party arrived at
Del Monte shortly after 7 o'clock this
evening. At the requent of the presi
dent, his arrival at Del Monte was de
void of ceremony, in order that Mrs.
Harrison and the other ladies of the
party be allowed time for rest and
preparation for tomorrow's programme.
The Hotel Del Monte, where the party
spend the night, is beautifully decor
ated with flowers and bunting, the
rooms assigned to tbe president and the
ladies of his household, being special
objects of beauty.
■ This morning the president received a
cordial invitation from the governor of
Nevada to visit that state, but was com
pelled to decline because of the impossi
bility of at this time changing the sche
dule already agreed upon.
The president was informed this even
ing that the Chinese emperor had noti
fied his minister at Washington of his
unwillingness to receive Mr. Blair, the
newly appointed American minister to
China. The president said it was news
to him, bat made no other comment.
Portland, April 29.—Tbe ladies of
the presidential reception committee to
day decided to tender Mrs. Harrison
and the other ladies of the party a re
ception at the Hotel Portland, on the
evening of May sth. The members of
the chamber of commerce will march in
a body to receive tbe president.
Minister Blair Ordered to Retrace His
Steps to Washington,
Chicago, April 29.—Tonight Mr. Blair
received a telegram Irom Secretary of
State Blame, requesting him to return
to Washington. The message contained
no other information, and Mr. Blair will
go back tomorrow. He said he had no
official notification of any change, and
knew nothing of the rumors that he is
to be sent to Japan or Persia. Until
the receipt of the message, he was not
aware that he was not to continue his
voyage to China. So far as his official
knowledge goes, he is still the accred
ited minister to that country. Person
ally he does not care whether he goes or
stays. s
Death of • Naturalist.
Indianapolis ( April 29.—Esnest Mor
ris, the naturalist, died tonight.
B. F.Hutchinson, the Veteran Grain Specu
lator, Drops from Sight-His Finances
Thought to be in Bad Shape.
Chicago, April 29.—8. P. Hutchin
son, the millionaire grain speculator,
widely known as "Old Hutch," is miss
ing. It is supposed that he is demented,
and his business a financial wreck. He
left the city last night, having pur
chased a ticket to Pensacola, Florida.
Before going he paid visits to two of his
favorite drinking resorts, and in each
place announced that he would not be
seen again. It has been a «natter of
common rumor on the board that busi
ness misfortunes had unbalanced Old
Hutch's mind. His always eccentric
conduct seemed increasingly (Vratic of
late. On the board he had re
cently been speculating wildly
it was practically ' certain
be lost heavily and steadily. &>
morning, when the news of his depart
ure got out, operators who had deals
with him, began calling for margins. J"
a short time W. J. Hutchinson, his
youngest son, formally announced the
fact that his father was missing, and
that neither his family nor business as
sociates knew his whereabouts. The
house, he said, could not put up any
margins. For a time the announcement
caused the wildest excitement on the
floor, and the market sharply declined.
Various rumors floated about, it being
stated, among other thines, that Old
Hutch was insolvent, and that his
liabilities would be $6,000,000 in excess
of his assets. On the other hand his
son, while saying he thought his fath
er's mind was unbalanced, and that he
had wandered away, did not think he
was insolvent. He is confident that
everything will be paid up, dollar for
dollar. Many brokers believe Hutchin
son has simply gone away on a long
projected vacation, and will pretend
great surprise when he hears of the
sensation. A dispatch from Evansville,
Ind., says he was seen there this after
noon, and went south on the Louisville
and Nashville road. He appeared very
In an interview tonight, his brother
Russell estimated Hutchinson's losses
during the past fourteen months at not
less than $2,000,000. Russell does not
think, however, that his actual short
age to his creditors is more than $100,
--000. He understands that Hutchinson
made over a large portion of bis prop
erty to his wife and youngest son some
time ago, and has since lost what he re
served for himself. Russell thinks the
old speculator went away mortified by
the knowledge that he could not settle,
and resolved to absent himself until
matters are arranged.
The Advice of the Socialists Having Lit
tle Effect on the Men.
Scottdalb, Pa., April 29. —Affairs in
the coke region are very quiet. The
Keyster plant has come to the cokers'
terms, making the fourth in the district,
and the men seem more confident. The
operators report increased forces, and
men are arriving on every train. The
sensational advice of the socialists had
little effect, as the men are very
quiet and peaceable. The cost of
the coke strike up to this, the twelfth
week, is estimated at about three and
one-half million dollars.
Alex. Jones, the socialist, is said to be
the author of a circular which is being
distributed through the coke region,
calling upon the working men to arm,
and urging them to seize the militia
Not Self-supporting.
Troy, Ala., April 29.—The root of the
opera house collapsed this afternoon,
while a party of young people were re
hearsing an amateur performance. Miss
Annie Foster and Miss Fannie Stark
were killed. Two young girls were
probably fatally injured, and a dozen
others painfully bruised. The roof was
intended to be self-supporting, but was
faulty in construction.
Kimball and Not Maxwell.
Chicago, April 29.—The Daily News
thinks Frank A. Kimball, of California,
instead of Walter S. Maxwell, will be
made chief of the horticultural depart
ment, and that Skiff of Colorado will
get the mining bureau.

A Long: List of Toasts on Thread-
bare Topics.

Senator John P. Jonea. ■>
Associated Press Dispatches.
New York, April 29. —Five hundred
guests tonight attended the banquet of
the American Protective Tariff league,
at Madison Square gardens. The dining
room was handsomely decorated, and
everything about the affair was emblem
atic of American industries. The dishes,
cutlery, table-cloths, napkins, wines,
cigars and even the tin menu cards,
were of American manufacture. The
list of toasts was a lengthy one.
Cornelius M. Bliss presided, in place
of President Ammidon, absent by reason
of illness. Bliss in his remarks said:
"It is said by some editors and public
men that the events of
have shown that the so-called educa
tional campaign of the opponents of
American politics has borne fruit, and
that protection has been discredited by
tbe people of the United States.
It appears to me that, the as
sumption by a few who have
usurped the title of tariff reformers that
really belongs to us, that the intelligent
people of this country require education
on economic questions by a body of
closet students, who, however honest in
their convictions, are without practical
experience, is an impertinence."
Secretary Noble responded to the
toast. The President, saying in part:
"This is an auspicious time for members
of the Republican party to assemble.
Protection of our industries is uniting
our countrymen everywhere. There is
indeed a president of the United States,
and you will agree with me in saying he
is a good president. Let us maintain
peace with honor, looking not abroad
for directions or approval."
Bliss proposed the health of vice-Pres
dent Morton, who then briefly address
ed the assembly, and was loudly ap
Major McKinley was then introduced
as the next governor of Ohio, and the
cheering did not subside for five min
utes. He made a brief speech in which
he said: "We will have tariff so long
as we have a government. If I ever re
gretted that I was a protectionist, that

platform the principles advocated by
such men as Webster, Clay, Lincoln,
Grant, Hayes, Garfield and Harrison."
McKinley further said, the country is
prospering and what is wanted, is to go
on prospering, and no "monkeying"
with the tariff. He predicted that tbe
tariff law will not be changed in the
next ten years, unless by the Republi
can party on protection fines.
Senator Aldrich spoke to the text,
"Maintenance of the protective system,
indispensable to profitable commerce."
Senator Jones, of Nevada, sent a let
ter in which he said a Chinese wall of
protection was precisely what was
needed in this country to keep the
squalor and distress that attends low
wages,abroad. Popular government rests
upon the affections of the people, and
men can have no affection lor govern
ment under which they starve.
Senator Dolph, of Oregon, responded
to the toast "Protection as it
affects the prosperity of the
people and the development
of the Pacific coast." The Republicans
of the Pacific coast, he said, do not be
lieve tariff is a local issue. They hold
that protection is national; that all the
industries of the nation are so insepar
ably connected that one cannot suffer
without injury to the whole. The
growth and prosperity of the commerce
of the Pacific coast is dependent largely
upon the protection policy. The Mc-
Kinley tariff act was what tbe people
demanded; what the party prom
ised "«|as a measure to
protect {lithe interests of America.
The issugjipon which the next presi
dential election will be fought, will be
precisely the issue upon which President
Harrison was elected and Cleveland de
feated. "I am confident when tbe issue
is again squarely put before the
people with ample opportunity to
discuss, as well as to refute the misrep
resentation from free trade sources, and
when the last tariff legislation has had
time to vindicate itself, I am confident
the result will be an increased majority
for protection."
Addresses were also made by Messrs.
Hiscock, Bolliver, Farquhar, Sheridan,
Porter and others, continuing until a
late hour.

Denver, April 29. —The famous Mill
ington murder trial ended tonight, with
a verdict of not guilty. The case was
one of the most noted in the west. On
June 2d, last, William Avery, a wealthy
citizen, of Fort Collins, died. Twelve

cause to take her own life.
The Olaen Trial.
Merced, April 29.— In the Olsen trial
today, Henry Smith, an employee of

the accused man's hacamo got there.

sick at the ranch, and Jake Olsen bled
him. Olsen's horse was tied near, and
some of the blood probably got on the
hacamo. Judge Law decided not to

murder. The defense will Drobably

Rome, April 29.—Signor Imbriani,
who stirred up a row with ex-Premier
Criepi a few weeks ago, cre
ated another great uproar in
the chamber of deputies today.
He charged the Italian government
with permitting the African slave trade
to be carried on openly, and also asserted
that thirty-five girls, taken from frontier
towns under the pretext of rescuing
them from slavery, had been dis

Facetious Customer to Clerk—l see you advertise all kinds of coats.
Have you any coats of arms ?
Clerk —Well, I should say so. Did you ever see any coats without arms?
Talking about customers, let us tell you a
small joke. A lady wished to purchase a suit for
her husband. Said our salesman: "What size
does your husband wear, Madam ?" "I don't know
exactly," replied she, "but he wears a i6}4 collar."
But to come to the point, as the stump speaker
says, we would like to tell you what prompted us
to write this advertisement. It was the conversa
tion of an eastern lady who purchased two boys'
suits of us this morning. Said she: "Why, I am
really surprised to find such beautiful styles!
Why, they are just as nice as any store in Chicago
keeps." That she purchased two suits goes to
prove our prices were right.
Said another lady one day last week, on in
quiring the price of a large, fine braided, child's
black sailor hat: "Now, don't ask me too much."
" One dollar and fifty cents," said the salesman,
" and that is a low price, for we buy them direct
from the factory." "Well, I'll take one," replied
the lady, " and now that I have bought it, I'll tell
you that I have been asked two dollars and fifty
cents for the same hat elsewhere."
