Was the Feature of the Liberty
Bell Ceremony.
30,000 PEOPLE ON HAND
They Cheered Every Patriotic Sentiment to the
Echo—His Tribute to Miss
Marshall.
Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 9.—With the most
impressive ceremonies thitt have yet
marked the progress of the Cotton States
exposition, the historic old Liberty bell
was today formally placed In charge of
the Atlanta authorities. The ceremonies
took place on the broad stairs leading
up to the stately Pennsylvania building,
the handsomest In the beautiful park
and on the most attractive site. The
day was full of incidents, some of them
of striking character, but the most sig
nificant was the declaration of sympathy
with the cause of Cuba, made with dra
matic effect by both Governor Atkinson
of Georgia and Mayor Warwick of Phil
adelphia, both of whonj aroused wild en
thusiasm from the great crowd that
heard them. Again was there a dra
matic scene when Mayor Warwick, in
the course of his brilliant oration, turned
to Miss Eleanor Warren Marshall, who
was on the platform, and, bending grace
fully over her hand, introduced her as the
great granddaughter of the illustrious
supreme court justice at whose funeral
the venerated relic had tolled for the
last time. Miss Marshall is a strikingly
handsome brunette, slender and graceful,
and her great black eyes filled with tears
and she trembled with emotion as Phil
adelphia's handsome mayor paid her the
most graceful compliment ever paid in
public to a young woman. He eloquently
thanked Miss Marshall for the privilege
of greeting the descendant of so illus
trious a man, and declared that the emo
tion that filled his breast at that moment
would never be forgotten; that he would
tell his children of the honor bestowed
upon him, and bid them cherish the
memory of this day to the end of their
lives.
Through a solid line of the people the
bell was this morning escorted to Its rest
ing place in Piedmont park. The pro
cession was dignified, the people enthus
iastic and the crowd within the grounds
the largest since the opening of the ex
position. Fully 30,000 people were on
hand, more than one-third of them being
children, the public schools having closed
in honor of the bell. The special military
escort was the famous Fifth regiment.
United States infantry, until recently
the fighting command of Gen. Nelson A.
Miles. Captain K. Kellogg Is now In com
mand, and the regulars, in dress uniform,
with white helmets, presented a splendid
appearance. Gov. William Y. Atkinson
and his staff came next in importance
and then came the Fifth regiment, GeoG
gia national guards, 600 strong; the AG
lanta artillery and the crack Governor's
Guards, composed of the very flower of
Georgia's young manhood. Following
the military pageant was a long string of
open carriages containing the mayors of
Philadelphia and Atlanta, the council
manic escort from the Quaker City and
the local council and a reception commit
tee that Included many of Atlanta's most
prominent professional and business
men.
At the Pennsylvania building the b.ell
was halted and on Its car stood at the
foot of the stairway during the progress
of the ceremonies. The school children
and Gilmore's band were massed on the
broad porch of the building, while on a
platform the orators and distinguished
guests occupied seats. With them were
many of Georgia's most b'eautlful makls
and matrons and the scene was an inspir
ing one. The front of the building was
covered with state and national colors
and flags floated from every staff In
sight. It was past noon when Chairman
W. J. Campbell of the council's commit
tee, who acted as master of ceremonies,
called the vast assemblage to order and
introduced Rev. E. H. Barrett of the
First Presbyterian church, who offered
up a fervent prayer. Then several thou
sand school children sang "My Country
'Tis of Thee,” accompanied by Gilmore's
band, their sweet young voices swelling
out charmingly on-the balmy air.
Mayor Porter King of Atlanta, in a
forcible speech, formally welcomed the
bell and Mayor Warwick rose to respond.
The handsome Philadelphian threw his
heart into his task and his friends say
that he was never so effective. Certain
It is that he carried his great audience
along on his whirlwind of elo
quence and was cheered again and again
for his impassioned words and his grace
ful, yet dramatic, action. Mr. Warwick
said In part:
"The lesson that Is taught us by the
cordial reception that has been given
the llbe. ty bell is that we are a united
people, not only In fact, but in sentiment;
that our loyalty Is not confined within
state lines, but Is as broad as the nation;
that there are no limits to our patriot
ism save the borders of the republic.
Mason and Dixon’s line is but a geo
graphical division that has its place on
the chart, but not fn the heart of the
nation.
“The old bell has gone through the
land, eloquent In its silence, its reverber
ation coming out, the post still ring
ing in the ears of the people and appeal
ing to their hearts. Though its metallic
tones be dead, It calls men from the an
vil, the plow, the office and the fireside.
“In the march to the south we pushed
on to Richmond and captured It, with no
bitterness in our hearts, nor steel in our
hands. We marched through Georgia,
not with tire and sword, but with love
and peace. The only delays in our pro
gress since we left home were caused by
the people who stopped us to bless the
bell and to send their best wish's
after it."
He Mien told of all the Journeys of the
relic, and, continuing:, said:
"This is not our bell; It Is yours. We
but hold it in trust for the nation. The
people of Philadelphia send It to you
willingly and with all their hearts. At
the time of the opening of your exposi
tion here an Incident occurred which
strikes me as being of the greatest sig
nificance in so far as the future of the
republic Is concerned. Your directors,
for the first time upon such an occasion,
gave recognition to the industrial and
educational work which has been done by
the black race since the war for the up
building of this great section of our
country ;and no less will be remembered
the eloquent language of their report In
laying down a platform upon which both
races may stand with the unfted approval
of the whole country."
Then turning to Miss Eleanor Warren
Marshall he grasped her hand, and the
lovely girl arose and listened to a glowing
eulogy of her great grandfather, Chief
Justice Marshall of the supreme court,
at whose funeral the old bell craoked
while tolling In his honor. She remained
standing, her hand In that of Mr. War
wick. who bent over in graceful attitude
while he paid a tribute to her beauty as
well as the reference he felt for the dead
chief Justice. This graceful act aroused
the greatest enthusiasm. Men cheered
and women waved their handkerchiefs at
the striking tableaux, and It was several
moments before he could continue. Then
be dwelt at some length upon the old
time oordlal relations between Pennsyl
vania and Georgia.
"Some years ago," he eontiued, "those
relations somewhat strained, but like
lovqrs who were parted, the separation
taught us how necessary we were to
each other's existence and happiness.
Those days, thank God, have passed,
never to return."
“If the bell could only speak to us to
day it would tay: 'My children, for your
fathers I proclaimed liberty throughout
the land, and I beseech you, for their
sake, to preserve and keep forever that
which they transmitted to your care.'
“With the memories and associations
that this bell revives, and with the les
sons that are taught by Its coming in
your midst, no wonder the entire nation
has watched its progress southward."
Concluding. Mr. Warwick turned to the
bell and said:
"We leave it in the hands of our
friends. We know you will watch it with
the same solicitude and tenderness that
we bestow upon It. Though its lips be
mute, though its tongue be silent, it is
more eloquent than ten thousand human
voices. Its echoes still thrill the world.
"It seems almost to us to be a thing
instinct with life. It has spoken so often
to commemorate the great events of our
nation’s history that Its tone seems to
live like the Influence of a great and good
soul long since departed. May the tones
that once Issued from Its throat he car
ried across the waters of the Atlantic
and give cheer and comfort to that
island, the gem of the Antilles, where
Cuban patriots are struggling to throw
off the yoke and despotism of Spain.
May they be heard throughout the world,
penetrating every state or section of Eu
rope and Asia wherever tyranny exerts
Its power or oppression burdens the peo
ple.
"Oh, God of the nations—God of our re
public—watch over and bless this bell.
Perhaps In Thy providence and for Thine
Own good purposes—for In Thy hand are
the destinies of nations—Thou hast pre
served this bell with all its memories
and associations to be the means by
which the republic may be more closely
united.
"The words that are Inscribed upon Its
surface, taken from holy writ, were
prophetic It seems as If they must have
been written by Inspiration, and may
they go ringing down the ages, giving
hope and encouragement to nations yet
unborn, to peoples not yet free.”

A DELIGHTFUL SPREAD
In Honor of Secretary Herbert at the Resi
dence of General Rufus N.
Rhodes.
A delightful dinner was given to Sec
retary of the Navy Herbert by Gen. Ru
fus N. Rhodes of the News at his ele
gant home on the South Highlands yes
terday afternoon. It was in honor of the
secretary of the navy, Col. Hillary A.
Herbert, whom all Alabamians love to
honor, and a more delightful occasion
was never had In the city of Birming
ham.
Only gentlemen were invited, and Gen
eral Rhodes occupied the head of the
table, while Colonel Tomlinson, president
of the State Herald company, sat at
the opposite end of the table at General
Rhodes' request. Secretary Herbert oc-,
cupled the post of honor at the right cT
the host, and the other gentlemen at the
table were: W. W. Screws of the Adver
tiser; John C. Williams of the Mountain
Home, Talladega; Gen. J. B. Stanley of
the Greenville Advocate; E. O. Neely of
the Guntersvllle Democrat; Ross C.
Smith of the railroad commission; R. F.
Johnston of the Evening News, and H.
M. Wilson and J. H. Nunnellee of the Bir
mingham State Herald.
It was 4 o’clock when those Invited to
meet Secretary Herbert sat down at the
table, and It was 6 o’clock before they
arose. General Rhodes made a delightful
host and a most enjoyable time was had.
In the center of the table was a minia
ture war vessel, decorated with choice
roses, from among whose folds small can
non could be seen emblematic of the
great navy over which the guest of honor
of the evening had the honor to preside.
General Rhodes proposed a toast "To
the Greatest Living Alabamian,” which
was drak standing. Secretary Herbert
responded In a modest manner to the
toast, after which he proposed a toast
to the host of the evening, which \\as also
disposed of standing.
A toast was drank to the wife of the
host, who designed the floral decoration,
with "the hope that a. battleship would be
built by the United States to be named
Birmingham during the term of office of
the present secretary of the navy.”
Secretary Herbert said that nothing
would please him more than to have the
idea put Into execution, and a battleship
built and named after Birmingham.
General Rhodes proved himself a capi
tal host, and those so fortunate as to be
invited felt that they had spent a pleas
ant and profitable evening.
