house broke the record for parti

Jefferson, offered a resolution
providing for an additional page,

Mr. Dandridge spoke in support
of his resolution, and urged that
the delay of legislation by the
want of a journal page was cost

or $500 per day.
Judge Maxwell offered an
amendment providing that the
new page should be a Republican,

made the limbs of the great oaks
at Spiegel Grove hang low. As
early as 9 o'clock the people be
gan flocking at the Hayes man
sion, and all forenpon thousands
passed in a continual procession
to the hushed mansion to take a
last look at the honored dead.
At 9 o'clock the school children
of tho city, numbering (JOO to 800,
marched in fine order with the
national flag at their head, and
followed by the civic societies of
Fremont, passed in a long pro
cession through tho large dining
room at Spiegel Grove, where the
remains lay in state. The plain
cedar casket in black cloth rested
in the centre of the room, with
no decorations upon it but three
palm branches tied with purple
ribbon, the gift of David Norton,
of Cleveland. The silver plate
bore the inscription, "Ruther
ford B. Hayes, Jan. 16, 1893."
On the breast was the decoration
of tBe Commander-in-Chief of the
Loyal Legion, and on the left
lapel of the coat was the decora
tion of the Army of the Virginia.
A huge American flag was
stretched across the south end
of the room. Over it wore
bunches of white and yellow
roses and wreaths of heliotropes.
The simple services for the
dead began in the Spiegel Grove
mansion at 2.o'clock. In the par
lor adjoining the dining room
were President-elect Cleveland,
the Cabinet members, delega
tions of United States Senators
and Congressmen and officers of
the army and navy. Amid the
falling tears of the mourners the
casket was lifted by the pall
bearers and the sad procession
to Oakwood cemetery was begun.

seveial days until he took a traia

final fate thatawaited him. Kenna
was spoken to about tho matter,
the possible peril and injury to

James and havinc been with him.
Ho said: "Oh, well, I know him
when I had not a shirt to my
