Scenes and Incidents Connected "With the Inauguration. NewYokjc, Oct. 28. The lain storm which prevailed all day yesterday ceased last night, but the weather this morning is very unpromising for the festivities which are to take place in connection with the inauguration of the Bartholdi Statue of Liberty. A slight fog hangs over the city and obscures in a measure the elaborate decorations of buildings with which the city lias been heautifled. French and American Hags arc flying from house tops and windows in every direction, and a gen eral holiday appearance is presented by moving bodies of soldiers, militia, civic or ganizations, and by the. collection on the sidewalks of great crowds of people. Busi ness during the day will be almost entirely suspended; public schools will be closed and all Kew York will join in tho celebra tion. Visitors from all sections of the country have been coming into the city for two days past, and this morning thousands more were added to the great throng. The storm greatly interfered with the work on Bed "loe's island yesterday, bnt as little was left to do it did not matter much whether it rained or not. The platform that has stood in one of the northwestern angles of the en closure was l emoved and a platform for the speakers stands ready for their recep tion. A handsome silk French flag will be placed over the face of the statue. At the word from President Cleveland, it will be drawn, unveiling the head of the goddess. The land parade, which moved out at 9 o'clock, includes between 25,000 and 35,000 men. The head of the column will reach, the battery about noon. The naval parade starts about 12.45. The president will reach 'Bedloc's island, it is expected, about 3, and the exercises commence as soon as he has reached his seat. It is estimated that fully a million people took part in the festivities tpday. From the boundary line cast and west at the river fronts the host of people moved till when nearly to the line of march there grew to bo a tide of humanity jammed up against the police lines and set back by its con stantly flowing streams to near by avenues. The procession was to have staited at 9 o'clock, but at that hour it had only begun to form. Promptly at 10, the president accom panied by Secretary of State Bayard, de scended the steps aud entered the open car riage. Thev were followed by Secretary "Whitney, Postmaster General Vilas, Secre tary Lamar, Private Secretary Lamont, Rear Admiral Lioer and stall aud Major Whipple, The old guard preceded the carriage. At "10:15 commenced the march down Fifth avenue. Both sides of the avenue were crowded with people, who waved hats and applauded loudly as the presi dent's carriage passed followed by a battal ion of twenty-five police. The United States naval brigade came next with the engineer corps, followed by the Second regiment, S. X. G., New York detachment, Massachusetts volunteers, militia, Seventh Eigtith, Twelfth, Eleventh and First regiments, French societies, the governors of Massachusetts, Maine. Vermont, Con necticut, Rhode Island. New Jersey, Xcw York, Maryland and their staff, together with United States judges, mayors, oilieiah from various cities, visiting policemen, and firemen, veterans of 1812, Grand Army, civic societies, volunteers firemen s asso ciation. Knights of Pythias of Indiana, Odd Fellows aud ether organizations. The president reached the reviewing stand at Madison square at 10:40. lie was greeted with hearty cheers. Sccrctary Bayard rode in the carriage with him After the president had taken his place on the reviewing stand, the members of the French delegation were presented to him. Most of tho space in the reviewing stand was reserved for French guests. They were headed by M. Bartholdi, Count de Lessep. Admiral James, Gen. Prcbir, Col. De Pugi, M. Biget, Col. De Loussedal and Lieut. Vcllegcr. The French delegation was in charge of Capt. Ferdinand Lew, Capt. Schilling, Lieut. "Waltz and Col. 'Collins. Among other distinguished guests were Gen. Sheridan and staff, Col. Sheridan, Col. Kellogg, Col. Blunt, Governor Hill, accompanied by Lieutenant-Governor Jones, and staff, Judgc3 Brown aud Ben edict, of the supreme court, and Gen. Rn f us Ingalls. "When Governor Hill mounted the plat form there were cheers, but wncn Barthol di, the Sculptor, appeared and was recog nized a shout went up from those nearest the 6tand. .The cry of "Bartholdi," "Bartholdi," was then caught up: on both the reviewing and grand stand.

SEX.VTOB EVAET S' ADDRESS: Mr. President: The scene upon which tnis vast assemoiage is couectea displays a transaction in human affairs which finds no precedent or record in the past, nor in the long future we mav feel assured will it ever confront its counterpart or parallel. How can we fitly frame in words the sentiments. the motives, theTvelcomc which have filled and moved the hearts and minds of two 1 great nations in the birth of the noble con ception, the grand embodiment, the com plete execution of tins stupendous monu ment now unveiled to the admiring gaze of men. and emblazoned in its coronation of tho finished work with the plaudits of the world? What ornaments of speech, what eloquence of human voice, what costlv gifts of gold, frank incense and myrrh of our hearts tnoute can wo tiring to the celebration of this consumate triumph of genius, of skill, of labor, which speaks today and will speak forever; the thoughts, the feelings, the friendships of these.two populous, powerful and free re publics, knit together in their .pride aiuf joy at their own established freedom, and in the hope and purpose that the glad light of liberty shall enlighten the world? The genius, tlie courage, the devotion of spirit, the indomitable will of the great sculptor, Bartholdi, whose well-earned fame justified the trust committed to him, together wrought out of ' stubborn brass and iron the artist's dream, the airy con ception of. his mind, the shapely sculpture of his cunning hand, till here it stands upon its firm base as if a natural playmate ot elements, fearing no harm from all winds that blow. As with the French peo ple, so with our own. the whole means for the great expenditures of work .have come from the free contributions ot the people themsehes, and thus the common people of both nations may justly point to a greater and nobler monument m and of the historv, and progress, and welfare of the human race than emperor, or king, or governments have ever realized. The statue on the Fourth of July, 188-1, in Paris was deliv ered to and accepted by the gov ernment, by the authority of the president of the United States, delegated and executed by Ministor Morton. Today in the name of the citizens of the united States who nave cempleted the peu estal and raised thereon the statue, and of the volunteer committee who have exc cutcd the will of their fellow citizens I de clare in your presence, and in the presence of- these distinguished guests from France and of this august assemblage of the hon orable and honored men of our land and of this countless multitude, that this pedestal and united work of the two republics is completed and surrendered to the care anu keeping of the government and people of the united States. At the conclusion of Senator Lvarts' speech the signal wa3 given and the veil was withdrawn from the face of the stat ute amidst the booming. of cannons and the shrieking of whistles from hundreds of steamers aud other crafts gathered around the island. This indescribable ovation continued for fully half an hour. Senator Evarts then, Avhen the firing and hooting subsided, introduced Grover Cleveland, president of the united States, who in ac cepting the statute said: TUE PRESIDENT'S KESrONSE. The people of the United States accept with gratitndc fnam. their brethren of the French republic tfic grand arid completed work of art we here inaugurate. This token of the affection and consideration of the people of France demonstrates the great kiuship of republics, and conveys to us the assurance that in our efforts to commend to mankind the excellency of government resting upon popular will, we still have beyond the American continent a steadfast life. "We are not here today, before the representa tives of a fierce and warlike god, filled with wrath and vengeance, but we joyous ly contemplate instead our own deity, keeping watch and ward before the open gates of America, and greater than . all that have been celebrated in ancient Troy. Instead of grasping in her hand thunder bolts of terror and of death, she holds aloft tho light that illuminates the way to man's enfranchise ment. V. c v, id not forget that Liberty has here made her home, nor shall her chosen altar be neglected; willing votaries will constantly keep alive its nres and these shall gleam upon the shores of our sister republic in the east. Reflected tlir.iipn jsnrl ininod "with nusworinf nivs n stream of light shall pierce the darkless of ignorance anil man s oppression until liber ty enlightens the world. After President Cleveland came M. A. LeFaivre, minister plenipotentiary, who spoke as the representative of the republic of France. Ho Eaid: i.r: rAivr.E's addkess. In the presence of soiraposingan assembly and a3 a prelude to a ceremony which con solidates the circle of friendships of two great nations, it is an honor and a hearty pleasure to me to present to vou m the name of the French nation the .ducerc and warm assurance of sympathic participation. The inauguration of today is one splendid with solemn and impressive import, for it is one of thecc which form an epoch in history. This colossal statue of liberty, moulded by a great artist, would anywhere attract attcutinn and deference, but here on American soil it evinces special significance, symbolizing the ex istence and development ot your nation during mre than 100 years. To us Americans and Frenchmen liberty is no only a common doctrine, it is also a family tie." From the alliance between the two nation's sprang forth the drizzling expecta tions of its expansion and radiance through His universe. It will be an eternal honorto France to have seconded the effort of yo'ir heroism, and to have understood zn th" first dawn the sublime prospects which were promised to mankind hy your gener ous ardour. This symbol winch we inau gurate todBV is not a mere allegory pledge of a fraternal union between the two greatest republics in the world it is greeted simultaneously by more than one hundred million of freemen who tendered fricndly hands to each other across the ocean. Among the thousands of "Europeans who sre daily conveyed to these hospitable shores, no one will passbctore this glorious emblem without immediately precciving its moral greatness, and without greeting it wish rpci't and thankfulness. The memorial address was delivered by Hon. Chauncey M. Depew. Then the au dience sang "Old Hundred" and the ben ediction was pronounced by the Rev. II. C. Potter, D. 3). A national salute from guns of all the forts and all the men-of-war in the harbor closed the escrcisef . At 1 :45 the leading part of the fleet en tered the upper bay and through the fog Isank could be discerned the pedfc-tal o the immense statue. Five minutes liter the Gend v had steamed un so close that Libertv island was eash'y distinguished, and then the torch of the statue where the fGjr wes thickest IcomediGp. Upon the face of the great and majestic figure was the French color. At 2 o'clock tlie flag-ship of the ttxt an chored to the southeastward of tho Liberty ptand. Here was gathered a fleet of vessels tht cau be better Imagined than described. All manner of crafts were at anchor in the waters about the great statue. The war vessels came in for their share of attraction with their tiers of black muzzles protruding from either side; they lay in a line that extendi d north and south, and were the Alliance, Tennessee, James town, x antic, Saratoga and Portsmouth. Shortly before 3 o'clock the United States steamer Dispatch with President Cleveland and cabinet aboard, hove in sight, and as it did the -yard arms of the war ships were manned. At 2:2o President Cleveland was rowed ashore. The whistles were blown, the guns of men-of-war belched forth and colors were displayed. For exactly half an honr this kept up. "When comparative quiet had been restored, prayer was offered by Rev. Richard Storrs. Count Ferdinand De Lesseps was then in troduced and was received with a round of applause. He spoke in French and with an energy equal to any speaker of the day. far exceeding in this" respect Senator Ev arts who spoke later. Senator Evarts and Mr. Chauncy M Depue wore skull caps while speaking; hut the octogenarian canal digger faced the storm boldly and without any covering to his si.vcred head. De Les seps said in part: Citizens of America: I hasten to accept your gracious invitation extended by the government of the great American republic. It is a generous idea on tho part of him who presided over the erection of the statue of liberty. It honors equally those who have conceived and those who under stood it in accepting it. Liberty in en lightning the world; grand beacon, raised amidst the waves of the shore of free America; in disembarking under its light one would know that he treads on soil where individual initiative has developed its full strength, where progress is a re ligion, where great fortunes become popu lar by their charitable enterprises in en couraging education ahd science, and scattering abroad fruitful seeds for the future. You are right, American citizens, to be proud of your "go-ahead." The rep resentatives of France today see America powerful and free, and they present to it this emblem to proclaim that she has grown great for liberty. Soon, gentlemen, we shall meet again to celebrate a new conquest of peace revoir at Panama, (ap plause) where the flag of the thirty-eight states of North America will be seen float ing along with the banners of tho inde pendent states of South America and will form in the new world for the good of hu manity a peaceful and fruitful alliance of the France Latin-Anglo-Saxton races. New Youk, Oct. 2S. The formation of the marine part of the parade began in the Hudson river, opposite "West Forty-fifth street at an early hour, but owing to tiio foggy weather it was nearly 1 o'clock be fore the signal gun was fired. At this time there were probably one hundred vessels drawn up iii two divisions. The first was composed of large steamers and the second of tugs and smaller vessels. Some of these were'beauti fully decorated with flags and bunting. It was after 1 o'clock when the signal gun to start was fired and the col umn began a forward movement. The United States steamship Dispatch lay off West Forty-third street, and a3 the column of boats approached, President Cleveland arrived with suit and prepared to go on board. A halt was ordered till the Dis patch got under way, when, with a loud blast of whistles the column of boats fol lowed in behind, bound south to Bcdloe's island. Three batteries took part in the salute of 100 gun3 fired from the battery on a wired signal at the moment of the unveiling of the statue. The steamers in the bay blew their whistles and the men-of-war returned the salute from their guns. At 4 o'clock the vessels which had been taking part in the naval parade began to return and deposit their cargoes of sight seers at the battery and near by the wharves. At -1:20 the guns on Governor's island and other points were unmasked and belched forth their thunder for half an hour. Tlie New York society of amateur pho tography chartered a steamer for the day and conducted art experiments at the scenes of the parade and at Bcdloe's Lhnd. The New York "World, which bore such a prominent part in raising the pedestal fund, was represented in the naval parade by two steamers. the i'kesidekt's r.ETcnx. New York. Oct. 2S.

An Open Switch Causes tho Wrcclc- iug of a Passenger Train aud the Death of Suvon Persona. Milwaukee. Wis., Oct. 23. The lim ited passenger train on the Chicago, Mil waukee & St. Paul road which left here last night at 10 was derailed at Ryocenc, when about three hours out and thrown into an old stone quany. Particulars hard to get, but it is admitted at the general office of the company in this city that oue coach and three sleepers were wrecked and 5 or G persons killed. Physicians left the city on the early train for the scene of the disaster. 9:30' a. in It Is now reported that out of ten persons who occupied the passenger coach seven were killed. A gentleman from Chicago and two childaen from Winona, Minn,, were the only ones saved from the passenger coach. None of the occunants of the sleeper were injured Nothing has yet been learned in regard to the number wounded. Engineer Searle, at first reported killed, was only slightly hurt. He arrived in the city at 11 this morning, lie says that when the crasli came lie was inroivn down;c twecu two large packing cases, which rested across his body. His lungs filled with smoke and at lir-t he thought he w: injured internally and that he was bleeding at the lungs. Jle was taken lrom ths de bris, however, without serious injury and was able to render assistance to other un fortunates. B. Loenbach, a job printer of this city, was on the wrecked train, lie mivh the scenes after the accident werq harrowing. The passenger coach, which he saya con taincd between fifteen and twenty persons, was telescoped at both ends nnd the fire and smoke that enveloped the wreck prevented tho iuiprisoncd and in jured passengers from escaping. Pas sengers from the sleepers gathered around tue blazing car-!, but tlicy were powerless to render assistance. Men nnd women could be seen tearing their hair in the agony of the moment; frightful screams issued from the death trap. One heavy woman in particular, he says, tore up one of the seats with almost superhuman strength, and endeavored to break her way out of the naming car but her strength failed, she fell to the floor nnd met a ter rible death. Only three persons escaped from tho passenger car, Mr. Loenbach says, a man and two children. Tho man was observed to force m way through tlie ventilator on top ol tlie car, and mmm clothing on his body from the waist dMHi ward burned off, and his flesh roasted and bleeding from cuts inflicted by broken glass. Every one of the wrecked cars were consumed with the exception of the last sleeper, which was cut away from the burning wreck. All the IkkJics of tlie vic tims were burned in the wreck. Miiwaukek, "Wis., Oct. 2S. A special to the Evening Wisconsin from Portage says: Last night soon after midnight tiio west bound limited was ditdied at the East Rio siding, a Miiall Elation about 115 miles cast of this city on the main Jfne of the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul road. There are two side tracks at the place and at the time the train was due thcrp last night, both were occupied by freights, one by a iild train, tho other by train No. 1-1, conductor II. P.

One report ays the rear brakeman whes business it was to close the switch after tnc train, far sgme reason neglected to do so. Another and more probable story ii that he started hack to close the switch, hut be fore he could reach it, the limited, which docs not stop at any except largo pl.ices, came tearing down the grade at fifty miles an hour and left the rail at the open switch. Tiic sidmgs are in a cut where the road curves so that the switch light cannot be seen from the cast until the train is with in a few rods, so that the engineer of the limited could not tJX the switch light was turned wrong until too late to siip. The engine left the track, ran a short dis tance, brought up against the skJc of the cut, toppling over. The baggage car and two rt-gular coocbCK followed, while the four sleepers kept the rails.

The poor mother, almost enveloped, thought of her children first and succeeded in pushing them out of tho window.

Infor mation received here, loads to thi belief that ihe was" thn Mother SuDerior of a convent at Now Castlo in Fou du Lac county; the order is kuown as the third order of 'Franciscan sisters. A livrchaut at whoso store the sister bought goods says there were three of them and they had'jheir packages taken to tho depot to go up on the night train to St. Paul. Tlie other victims whoc names Managr Miller had wore Louis Brinker of Ashland, and Emil Woldersdorf, a merchant of Col umbus, Wis. The only man who escaped from the burning car "was Dr. Smith of Chicago. If the merchant is correct about there being three instead of two Franciscan sisters who were going on that train there should be one added to Mr Miller's list of victims, making in all thirteen. This fs probably the full number. It may be scv oral days before the names of the others are secured. Milwaukee, Oct. 23, 10 p. in.
