Tne President-elect of the
United States.
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
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
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
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
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
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.

Trailing tho Train-Robbers.
Tulare. Cal., February 25.—Five
detectives and other officers are here
gathering evidence, and will soon leave
in search of the Pixley train-robbers.
Marshal Bachelder returned this even
ing. He says he found their tracks and
followed them from the scene of the
robbery seventy miles west of Delano
into the mountains. The Marshal's
horse gave out, and he could not get
another there. The robberß went into
the mountains on the Templar ranch.
The Marshal saw two men who had seen
them, and knows by the description that
they are the robbers. The search will
be continued. The report this morning
that the robbers had been captured
proved to be untrue. The parties sus
pected were innocent campers.

Morley Criticizes the Irish
And li. now net's the Government'
Policy as Harsh. Unjust and
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
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."
