The Remnant of Grant's Triumphant Army Reunited. Fifty Thousand Scarred and Orfzzied Veterans March Once More Up Washington's Most Historic Thoroughfare. By the Associated Press.l Washington, D. C, Sept. 20.—The feature in today's proceedings of the Grand Army reunion was the parade of veterans. In the early morning the weather was mild and hazy. Later the sun came out, shedding genial warmth, but the sky soon clouded over again and a cold wind made it uncomfortable in exposed places. The hour set for the starting of the parade was 9:30 a.m., and long before that time great crowds had lined up against the wire cables stretching outward along the sides of broad Pennsylvania avenue from the capitol building. The various veteran posts formed at their headquarters and marched to the places assigned them on tike di agonal streets on each -tide ,j[ Pennsylvania avenue, beginning at the west front of the capitol. The Illinois poets, coming from the state in which the order was organized, had the place of honor at the head of the line, next to the general officers, and the Wisconsin posts came second. So, in due order, through the dense lines of thousands of people who lined the pave ments and Bide streets, past buildings lavishly decorated with fluttering ban ners, festoons, flags and streamers; cheered on by the fresh voices of thou sands of school children, singing patri otic airs, the grizzled veterans who, 27 years ago, occupied two days.in passing in review along this grand national avenue, moved today with thinned ranks, whoße numbers did not pre clude the completion of the journey in a single day. Theu over rough cobble stones they marched as the members of the greatest of modern armies; tired, dusty, travel stained, war-worn, but with fierce exultation and pride born of knowledge of their deeds and accom plishments. Today over a smooth as phaltum pavement they marched again, still proud that they had been members of that great army, but in the years which thinned their ranks, the fierce war spirit died away and left little be hind but feelings of jojr and good w!?I to all men. In their grizzled locks and reminiscent faces, one could read the recognition of the facts that it was the last time many of them would see the national capitol. So it was they de cided to make the parade the greatest feature of the encampment, knowing it was a coincidence which could never be repeated. On the lawn adjoining the south wing of the treasury building, in a large, cov ered stand, named in honor of Lincoln, were placed 800 school girls, bo arranged in red, white and blue dresses as to pro duce a living star spangled banner. Fur ther down, near the Central market.col ored school girls were massed together on a stand, with their melodious voices blending harmoniously in a grand chorus as the old soldiers marched past. The order of march was as follows: Citizens' committee and guard, of Washington, as an escort of the com mander-in-chief; Grand Army battalion of Albany; commander-in-chief; senior vice commander-in-chief; junior vice commander-in-chief; official staff of the commander-in-chief; aides de campHo the commander-in-chief; escorts of the Grand Army; first defenders, the Sixth Massachusetts; United States Veteran Signal association. Department of Illinois, Edward Har lan, commander, with 23 posts and about 1500 men in line, gathered from all parts of the state. Next came the Wisconsin department with more men than the state ever had before .in an encampment parade, headed by Department Commander Col. C. B. Welton. G. W. Sutherland carried Old Abe, the famous war eagle carried through the rebellion by the Eighth Wisconsin regiment. Theodore Riel carried a badger, emblematic of the Wisconsin shield, and Doc Aubuery, the original newsboy of the Iron brigade, carrying a number of the identical newspapers he had unsold at the close of the war. There were 23 posts in line. Next came the Pennsylvania depart ment with the largest representation in line. Then came another heavy department, that of Ohio, headed by Commander L F. Mack. Then in order came New York, with ten brigades, with Slocum, Sickles, Howard and Reynolds in the ranks; Connecticut; Massachusetts, with Gen eral Butler; New Jersey, Maine. The Californiana "came next, all mounted, and carried a crimson silk banner, with the picture of a grizzly bear. Department Commander J. B. Falls led fourteen posts, and the admir able riding of the men was a subject of general comment. Next followed Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Virginia, North Carolina, Maryland, lowa, Nebraska, Michigan, and Indiana. Wyoming and Colorado were included in one department, and made a fine showing, with 33 posts, led by Depart ment Commander John C. Kennedy and staff. Then came Kansas, Delaware, Miss ouri, Kentucky, West Virginia, Arkan sas, Tennessee, Louisiana, Mississippi, Florida, Oklahoma, Texas, Alabama, South and North Dakota, with a credit able showing, and Indian Territory. The procession closed with the posts of the department of the Potomac, and naval veterans. The scene from the vice-president's reviewing stand during the parade was an extrenHsly exhilarating one. All the capacious public stands were oyerflow ing, and apparently every available foot of space from which a view could be had, was occupied. The great crowd was an enthusiastic one, and cheered the old soldiers again and again. Vice-President Morton arrived about 10 o'clock, accompanied by Secretary and Mrs. CbarLes Foster and daughter, Attorney-General Miller, Secretary and Mrs. Noble and the Missses Halstead, Mrs. Rusk and daughter, Secretary Tracy and daughter, Mrs. Wilmerding, Mrs. John W. Foster and Postmaster- General Wanamaker. Among other honored gnests who bad seats in the vice-president's etand were General and Mrs. Schofield, Assistant Secretary of War Grant, General and Mrs. Palmer, Mrs. Logan and Mrs. John A. Logan jr. It was nearly 11 o'clock when the column, headed by the citizens' local committee, mounted, turned into Fif teenth street, under the reviewing staud, and from that time on there was hardly a break in the lines. The vice president stood at the front of the plat form, and as the several departments dipped their colors in passing, he re turned the salute by lifting his hat. General Palmer, commsnder-in-chief, was heartily cheered as he passed, as were also ex-President Hayes, who marched with his post, Gen. 0. O. Howard, and Secretary Rnsk.as he rode with the staff commanders of the de partmentof Wisconsin. Commander-in-Chief Palmer, as he reached the stand, dismounted, and, standing between two mounted braes field pieces, reviewed the marching column. The Nineteenth Illinois Veteran clnb, armed with muskets, and headed by a fife and drum corpß, was especially no ticed, as was also Columbia poßt. "The Goose Hangs High" was emblematically represented by the Illinoisans, who had a stuffed goose perched on a high pole. The Keystone state was the banner state of the procession in numbers. There were probably 10,000 of them in line, and it took an hour and a half for them to pass by one point. They had enough worn battle flags and banners to decorate every armory in the state. The first negro company was Lewis post. The members were headed by the post band, and carried themselves well. Other colored troops were seen later, coming along at odd intervals. "The Daughter of the Regiment" walked in front of a line of OhiOans, a young Buckeye girl, bright and attract ive, in a dark-blue frock, trimmed with gold lace. The New York city and Brooklyn posts led the New York detachment, and no finer-looking body of men were seen here in any procession. The feature New Jersey displayed was a good-sized mosquito perched on a keg, labelled whisky, into which he was try ing to thrust his bill. Maine and California had small num bers in line, and quickly passed. When the Michigan post passed, for the first time during the day the popu lar "Boom de ay" was heard. Colorado and Wyoming marched to gether, headed by a small burro, be strode by a small boy; the Leadville band and a fawn, following behind whom came several hundred well-pre served, hardj-looking men from "the Bockies. lowa's brigade looked happy and con tented as it turned up the avenue, its individual members carrying long, green cornstalks, musket fashion, against their shoulders. They sang, as they walked, Marching Through Georgia^ And so the procession continued until evening. Department after department, post after post, hearty men and men on crutches, bands, drum corps, bright, fresh cloths, stained and ragged battle flags, cheers, clapping hands, waving handkerchiefs, swelling bosoms, out flowing eyes would moist, twitching lips refused to be still, and the growth of that spirit which would impel the meanest mortal to defend the stars and etripes from the assaults of any or all the nations on the face of the earth ; the greatest day in the history of the Grand Army of the Bepublic. At 6:05 the last veteran had passed by. More men were in line than at any other Grand Army parade. An estimate close to 50,000 men would not be far from the mark. Mrs. Logan kept open house tonight to the Grand Army veterans and the Woman's Relief corps of Illinois. A brilliant pyrotechnic display' was given in the Washington monument grounds early in the evening. The association of the First brigade, First division, Twelfth Army corns held a reunion on the White House lawn this evening. ARKANSAS RACE WAR. A Negro Uprising in Which the Blacks Got the Worst of It. Pink Bluff. Ark., Sept. 20.—The Associated Press correspondent received the first reliable information tonight from the scene of the race war in Cal houn county. It dates back six months, when a colored woman was whipped by wbitecaps for insulting a white woman. Trouble has been brewing ever since, and the negroes have been recently or ganizing with the alleged purpose of killing all the whitecaps. The white people learned of the movement and a posse went in search of the negroes. They met last Satur day and five of the negroes were killed outright, and a white man wound ed. Jim Harrison, the leader of the ne groes, was hanged. As nothing has been heard from there today, it seems that the matter has quieted down. The trouble was hastened to a crisis by rows around election time, and one Unsill, a white man, is charged by some with en couraging the negroes in their aggres sions. Little Bock, Ark., Sept. 20.—A spe cial to the Gazette from Thornton, Ark., says negroes who were arrested in Cal houn county made an affidavit that the object of their organization was to kill Sheriff Tomlinson, Clerk Means and sev eral other citizens. A number jpf mem bers of the organization are still in hid ing. The negroes, according to the cor respondent, openly assert that Unsill is the cause of the trouble. Mrs. Harrison Taken to Washington. Tkoy. N. Y„ Sept. 20.—President and Mrs. Harrison left Loon Lake for Wash ington at noon. Albany, N. V., Sept. 20.—The special train bearing Mrs. Harrison arrived here tonight. Dr. Gardner reported that she was stronger than when she left Loon Lake. The train is expected to reach Washington on schedule time in the morning. TEN PAGES. SPRINGER ON THE STUMP. A Reply to McKinley's Speech of Last Week. The Fallacy of the Tin Plate Tariff Exposed. Welsh Mills Closed Down Because of Over-production. The Industry a Failure in America—The People Bobbed or Millions of Dol lars by the Present Rate of Duty. By the Associated Press.] Mattoon, 111., Sept. 20.—Hon. Will iam M. Springer addressed a large au dience here today. Hia speech was principally a reply to that delivered by MeKinley at Elwood, last week. He said during the interval of nine months before the starting of the increased rate provided in the MeKinley bill, there was an enormous increase in the importa tions of tin plates to get them into the country under the old rates and sell them at increased rates. If the Me- Kinley bill had taken effect on tin plates immediately on its passage, as it should have done, the government would have received over $10,000,000 more revenue than it did from these im portations. The people were compelled to buy at the supposed increased price, however, and this $10,000,000 was a net profit to the tin plate importers and jobbers. After working to the ut most capacity for a time to meet the enormous demand from the United States, the Welsh mills, after June, 1891, were obliged to shut down for a time, in order that consumption might catch up with production. The Repub licans immediately set up the claim that the MeKinley bill had caused the Welsh mills to shut down and the industry to be transferred to this country. Thus history and facts were perverted to de ceive the people. Congressman Springer further said: "The manufacture of tin plates in this country is conceded by all to be an un profitable industry, which cannot exist without a government bounty or a high protective tariff. Either the govern ment or the consumers of tin plates must pay $16,000,000 every year more than otherwise required, in order to have our annual supply of tin plates made here. The report of the government agent for the fiscal year ended June 30th, last, shows that the output of tin and terne plates in this country that year was 13,240,830 pounds. This is less than 2 per cent of the amount consumed In the same period. We were told when the MeKinley bill was pending, that within one year from its passage we would make here all the plates we could consume. According to the official re port, only about one-quarter of the amount produced here was tin plates ; the other three-fourths terne plates, which are coated with lead and tin, and ÜBed for roofing purposes only, and even this meager output of less than 2 per cent is not altogether of American pro duction." Springer went on to state that the importation of steel sheets or "black plates" used in the manufacture of tin plates since the passage of the MeKin ley bill, began to increase almoßt cor respondingly with the increased produc tion of tin and terne plates. "An agent of the treasury department," said he, "claimed for the last quarter of the last fiscal year, that 5,000,000 pounds of black plates were made in the United SUtes, but where made and whether used in the manufacture of tin plales, does not appear; but it does appear that the importations for that quarter were over 4.000,000 pounds; and from this it is apparent that the greater emount of tin and terne plates produced in the United Stateß, is made by using imported black plates. The part per formed in America is in a large measure a mere dipping procees; the metals are mostly imported. It was stated in a circular recently issued by the Taylor company, of Phila delphia, that, by using the latest im proved Welsh dipping Dot, two boys can dip 70 boxes of tin daily. If this is true, 12 boys, by working an entire year, could have dipped the entiie American production for the fiscal year; and, at the same ratio, it would only require 642 boys to dip the entire amount required in the United States. Neither the dipping boys nor the men who box the plates are skilled laborers, and are hired at the lowest prices for unskilled labor. But, no matter how many persons were engaged in the in dustry here the past year, it is evident that the American people, who are sub jected to a tax of $16,000,000 a year for building up the tin plate industry, pay very dear for the luxury." Springer asserted that it was not in tended to build up a bona fide tin plate industry in this country. The increased rate was largely "lobbied through by the American Corrugated Roofing company, which wished to drive tin roofers out of the field, and has succeeded. "The Democratic party, if clothed with power by the people, will speedily put an end to this political partnership with private enterprise, and restore the duty on tin plate to 1 cent per pound, or put it on the free list." Weaver in Hot Water. Waycross, Ga.. Sept. 20.—General Weaver made his first speech in Georgia at this place today. Many copies of the Atlanta Journal, containing a full page artiole on Weaver's career in Pulaski, Term., with affidavits as to his brutality and outrages while commander of the post there, were distributed during the morning. General Weaver addressed the chief portion of his speech to reply ing to these charges. He denounced them alias unqualifiedly false. Keystone Democratic Clubs. Scranton, Pa., Sept. 20.—Chauncey F. Black called to State Society of Dem ocratic Clubs to order at noon. Hon. Lemuel Amerman was elected temporary chairman. The manner of selecting 11 delegates-at-large to the New York con vention, next month, caused a big fight, daring which pandemonium broke loose. The matter finally went to the committee on resolutions. The fear of PRICE FIVE CENTS. the convention was that the committee demardfcd by some would select a majority of the delegation from Phila delphia The convention adjourned for dinner after committees on resolutions, permanent organization and credentials had been appointed. Blaine Did Not Vote. Augusta, Me., Sept. 20.—The Kenne bec Journal will print, tomorrow, a let ter from Mr. Blame, at Bar Harbor,with reference to the statement of several papers that, he did ' not vote at the late election. He said that, instead of going up to Augusta, which would have con sumed the better part of three days, he paired with a Democratic friend, and saved his vote aud lots of time. ♦ — The Wisconsin Gerrymander. Majmhon, Wis., Sept. 20.—Arguments were begun in the supreme court in the gerrymander case today, Colonel Bird and George G. Greene presenting argu ments against the constitutionality of the law. Colonel Viias and ex Senator Spooner will be heard tomorrow. E> AR9 AND 60MTA0. Ft auk Burke and Big Indian* Again on Their Trail.

They leave town at daybreak for Samp son flat. Two of the "Indians are the same that were here before. THEY WON'T REGISTER. CHINESE BENT OSNON-COMPLMNCE WITH THE NEW LAW, The Presidents of the Six Companies Deiine Their Position in a Letter Addressed to Collec tor Quinu. i San Fkancisco, Sept. 20.—The Call tomorrow will publish a letter from the president of the six Chinese companies, to the collector of internal revenue, John C. Quinn, sent in response to an inquiry by the collector as to whether or not it wbb true that the Six Companies had advised Chinese laborers not to comply with the provision* of the Cni nese registration law passed at its last session of congress. The presidents of the Six Companies say to the collector that they have issued ciiculare advising Chinese laborers that the law is uncon stitutional and cannot be enfoiced, and that they have suggested to the laborers that they do not comply with the law. The presidents ?ay their circular based Upon the advice of their attorneys, and they declare that the registration law is unconstitutional, and in violation of treaty rights. In support of the as sertion that the law is unconstitutional, they say that it makes no distinction between Oh in we who p.re aliens and Chinese who are citizens of the United States; that a citizen of the Chinese race is entitled to the came rights and privileges as those of the Caucasian race; that no law can be passed which is intended to apply to one class of people, and not to another. The letter states that all laws must be equal and uniform ; that congress has no power to pass a law it.flicting the pen alty of deportation; that the law is against the provisions of the constitution relating to the deprivation of life, lib erty and property, and relating to the infliction of cruel and unusual punish ments. The letter further Btates that the Chi nese now residing here, who came here under the existing laws, are entitled to remain. The letter then declares that the treaty between the United States and China provides that Chinese visiting or residing in the United States shall have the same rights and privileges as are en joyed by citizens or subjects of moßt fa vored nations. It says that while con gress has a right toabrogate or nullify a treaty, the Bupreme court of the United States has decreed that such abrogation or nullification must be in express terms, and not by implication. It de clares that congress has not so abro gated or nullified the treaty with China; and it then quotes the provision of the constitution that all treaties, as well as the constitution and laws of the United States, Bhall be the supreme law of the land. The letter declares further that no law is constitutional which imposes up on Chinese subjects residing in the United States, burdens, restrictions and penalties which are not imposed upon the subjects of other power?, residing in the United .States. Beside giving the above reasons for their belief that the restriction act. is in violation of the rights guaranteed both by the treaty and the constitution, the presidents of the Six companies say that the Chineee consider that the law is un warranted and unnecessary; that it is an insult to the eubjects of a friendly nation; that it is in violation of every principle of justice, equity and fair deal ing between friendly powers, and that it is an insult which is not inflicted upon the citizens or subjects of any other nation. Should any other nation pass such a law in reference to citizens of the United States, the government and people of the United States would resent it. The presidents aleo assert that if the law is enforced it will subject every Chinese merchant to blackmail of the worst type; that a Chinese merchant residing in San Francisco who may de sire to travel to New York, may be stopped at every hamlet and be arrested on the charge of being a laborer who has not registered. Inclosing the presidents jefer to the fact that Collector Quinn, in his recent letter to them, said that the officers of the Six companies might be liable to the United States government for incit ing Chinese to disobey the law of the United States. In response to this the presidents Bay their attention has not been called to any law which makes it a crime for them to advise their fellow countrymen that have a right to disre gard laws which are in violation of the constitution and treaty.
