ALL HAIL, HARRISON!
Tne President-elect of the United States. TRIUMPHAL PROGRESS BEGUN. Enthusiastic Thousands Listen to His Modest and Graceful Farewell Speech. I Associated Press Dlsriatches to the Hi r. Au>.; Indianapolis, February 25. —Amid the hurry and confusion of preparation, the work of the last hours of residence at tbe Harrison homestead, there has been a constant stream of callers keeping the General busy all morning. Many build ings in the business portion are gaily decorated in honor of the departure of the President-elect for Washington thiß afternoon. As the hour of 2 o'clock ap proached tiro streets began to fill up, and Pennsylvania avenue was soon thronged with thousands anxious to participate in the farewell demonstration of the Presi dent-elect. At 2 o'clock sharp, Governor Hovey and Mayor Denny drew up in front of the Harrison residence, behind a pair of large white horses drawing a handsome carriage. General Harrison met them at the door and cordially shook hands. The ceremony was entirely informal. Governor Hovey said they had come to perform the very pleasant duty of escort ing the General to the station on his eventful trip to Washington. A crowd of a hundred or so people stood on the sidewalk and in the yard, watching the departure of the distinguished party. Shortly after, General and Mrs. Harrison emerged from the house, preceded by the Governor and the Mayor. The General occupied the first carriage with Governor Hovey and Mayor Denny, and Mrs. Har rison and Mr. and Mrs. McKee occupied the next carriage. A string of carriages and a thousand or more people followed the carriages down Delaware street. The greatest enthusiasm prevailed along the route. In front of every resi dence were groups of people, who enthusiastically as the carriages drove by, the General constantly tippiog his hat and waving his hand in farewell to some old friend whom he recognized. When Ohio street was reached the throng was innumerable. Here the vet erans of George H. Thomas Post were in line, among them being General Lew Wallace and many other well-known men. They were accompanied by a military band and as the Gen eral's carriage drove up they opened tanks aud a cheer went up from the thousands of people that was heard for many squares. From this point to the station it was an impenetra ble throng. The buildings were black with people. At the intersection of Mar ket and Pennsylvania streets the mem bers of the Legislature were drawn up in line and the carriage passed through the open files, the law-makers cheering lus tily. They then fell in line and escorted the General to the station. It was 3 o'clock when the party reached the sta tion, where a crowd of fully 10,000 awaited them. The General and party were escorted to their car. The President-elect presently appeared on the rear platform, accompanied by Governor Hovey, who introduced him to the crowd and called for order, which, being partially secured, General Harri son said: "My good friends and neigh bors, I cannot trust myself to put in words what I fool at this time. Every kind thought that is in your minds, and every good wish that is in your hearts for me, finds its responsive wish and thought in my mind and heart for each of you. I love this city; it has been my cherished home. Twice before I have left it to discharge public duties, and returned to it with glad ness, as I hope to do again. It is a city on whose streets the pompous displays of wealth are not seen. It is full of pleasant homes, and in these homes there is an unusual store of con tentment. The memory of your favor and kindness will abide with me, and my strong desire to hold youi- respect and confidence will strengthen me in the discharge of my new and responsible duties. Let me say farewell to all my Indiana friends. For the public honors that have come to me I am their grateful debtor. They have made the debt so large that I can never discharge it. There is a great sense of loneliness in the discharge of high public duties. The moment of de cision is one of isolation, but there is One whose help comes even into the quiet chamber of judgment, and to His wise and unfailing guidance will I look for direction and safety. My family unite with me in grateful thanks for this cordial goodbye, and, with me, wish that these years of separation may be full of peace and happiness for each of you." The speech was received with cheers. At its conclusion, the General re-entered the car, and at 3:15 the the train left Indianapolis amid great enthusiasm. Richmond, Ind., February 25.—When Knightetown was reached, where is located the Soldiers' Orphans' home, the train stopped for a moment, and a crowd of five or six hundred gathered about the rear platform and gave three cheers for Harrison. He spoke a few words of fare well. Richmond was reached at 5 :02 r. m. Fully four thous«nd people assembled at the station and the crowd was very de monstrative, cheering at the top of their voices, while cannon boomed and whistles blew, making a din that was deafening. General and Mrs. Harrison appeared on the rear platform of their car and were greeted by a mighty shout from the crowd, which was a very noisy one, Finally,when the tumult had partially subsided, General Harrison spoke as follows: "My friends, I have so long had my home among you that I cannot but feel a sense of regret in leaving the soil of Indiana. I go with a deep sense of in adequacy, but I am sure you will be patient with my mistakes, and that ycu will all give me your help, as citizens, in my efforts to promote the best interests of the people and the honor of the nation we love. I thank you for this cordial greeting." [Cheers ] As the train passed along the track out of the city, it was accompanied by the screeching of whistles and the boom of cannon. While the train halted, a pro fusion of flowers was carried into the car and presented to Mrs. Harrison. Bradford Junction was reached at 6 p. m. Here the train changed engines in just one and one-half minutes, and sped on its way at the rate of fifty miles au hour. Übbana, February 25. —The next stop ping place, Piqua, was reached at 6:20 p. m. About five thousand people gathered here, and kept up s continual cheering. Governor Foraker and his wife boarded the Fresi THE LOS ANGELES DAILY HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 26. 1889. dential train here, and found the General aud party just sitting down to supper. Governor ForaKer brought General Har rison to the platform just as the train started. The Governor called out, "This is our next President," and General Harrison, bareheaded, bowed acknowl edgment to the cheering thousands as the train moved out. From Piqua to Urbana the train ran very rapidly, reaching the latter point at 6:30 p. m. Here another large crowd welcomed the Presidential party, but the stop was short. From this time on, dense darkness covered thescene and prevented the occu pants from judging of the size of the crowds. At Westville, the glare of a number of pine knot torches was flashed into the car windows as the train dashed by. The run from Urbana to Columbus was made at a speed of a mile a minute. At Milliard's, ten miles out of Colum bus, a row of big bonfires was passed. In front of the blazing piles were a hundred or more men, frantically wav ing their hands. Governor Foraker and General Harrison were seated on a sofa iv the rear of tbe General's car during the run from Urbana. Columbus was reached at 8:15 r. m. Governor Foraker and wife left the train here. The demonstration at this point assumed unusual proportions. At least one fifth of the Capital's ono nut dred thousand population was in the vicinity of the depot when the train ar rived. In addition to the general crowd several organizations came and pressed in. The booming ot cannon and the din of brass music, drum corps and yells greeted the Presidential train as it moved into the depot. It re quired a large force of policemen to open tlie way for the engine. The train pullod pretty well through the depot be fore stopping, and the people were trying to keep up and rushed madly over each other. A large number of ladies were in the crowd, and many of them were in jured. Nearly tho entire membership of the Legislature went down with tiio Foraker Club, but they were all last sight of in the general rush. It was the intention to have several songs from a glee club, and also to listen to a speech from General Harrison. The former was* almost entirely eliminated from the pro gramme, and less than fifty persons heard anything the President-elect had to say. People standing within ten feet of him could see his lips move as if in the act of making a speech, and that was all. As soon as the General left the platform the crowd began to grow less dense, though the train was wedged about by people until it pulled out. Newark Depot, Ohio, February 25.— After the train left Columbus, prepara tions were made for retiring in General Harrison's car. Tne day had been a very fatiguing one. En route to Newark there were ttie urnl Sfttheringi at the stations, but the darkened cars failed to awaken the enthusiasm that greeted their passage early in the evening. PrrrsßUßa, February 25.—The Presi dential train arrived at:> :35 a. m. There was a small crowd of people at the de pot, but as everybody on the train except the correspondents and crew were asleep, their curiosity was not gratified. The train left for the Ea3t in 15 minutes. THE STATE SOMMS. gainst Ktneraud'frain Robbcrs-UHicr Hills.

PLEADS FOR IRELAND'S WRONGS And li. now net's the Government' Policy as Harsh. Unjust and Oppressive. I Associated Press Dispatches to the Herald London, February 25.—1n the Com- mons, this afternoon, Morley moved the adoption of an amendment to the address in reply to the Queen's speech condemn ing the administration in Ireland as harsh, unjust and oppressive, and asking that measures to content the Irish and re-establish a real union of Great Britain and Ireland be adopted. Morley asked why, if the condition of Ireland was bet ter, as claimed by the Government, pro ceedings against Irish members of the House of Commons were more frequent. These proceedings to him seemed a sign of alarm and dismay instead of confi dence. Morley strongly condemned the sin gular lack of prudence, foresight and care that had been shown by the Administra tion in Jrelaud during the last few months. The time was swiftly coming when an irresistible appeal would ascend from the nation, asking her Majesty to recur to the sense of the people, so they j might decide the great issues now divid ing the (iovernment and the Opposition. The Opposition required the fullest ex planation regarding the employment of Irish magistrates, Crown solicitors and the police in framing the Times case. They demanded to know why documents were handed to the Times for the purpose of a plot to which it might be proved that the Gov ernment had infatuatedly become dupes and accessories. Referring to the case ol Father McFadden, Morley said Bal four had admitted that the police had tactically erred in arresting the priest. Balfour had sent a doctor to O'Brien for the Bake of the credit of the gov ernment, and not on the ground of humanity. He quoted from a speech in which Balfour had said that he did not think he should allow O'Brien to ruin his constitution for the purpose of injuring tho government. Balfour had asserted that he (Balfour) had no power to relax the prison rules, but he did re lax them in the c,;.<es of the Catholic clergymen for fear of wounding or insult ing tne religious £entiment of tho people. Balfour, upon rising to reply, was greeted with cries of "Piggott." Balfour twitted Morley with alluding to the Par nell Commission and ignoring the most horrible charges of cruelty, inhumanity and cynical savageness with which his (Balfour's) wastebasket had been flooded during recess. Possibly, it began to dawn upon the minds of the Opposition that they had been duped in imaginary reports concerning the treatment oi O'Brien. (Cries of "Oh, oh.") He ad mitted that the prison rules had been re laxed in the cases of the priests, but the House knew he had always been doubt ful whether, in relaxing the rules, he was not straining the Crimes Act. Balfour defended the treatment of the prisoners under the Crimes act. He contended that the state of Ireland was improving wherever the plan of campaign had not penetrated. If the object of punishment was to prevent crime, never bad so great a result been attained at the cost of so little suffering. The statistics of agrarian crime showed a marvelous improvement in the condition of the country since tbe Crimes act passed. Balfour spoke in a cynical vein through out, and was subjected to a running fire of laughter, ironical cheers, and cries of "Piggott," and "the Times." The Trump* Progress.
