IMPRESSIONS OF THEIR TRIP.
What -the Chicago Visitors Have to Say on
Their Return Home.
The Chicago Times-IIerald gives the
following expressions from some of the
leading members of the Chicago excur
sion party to the exposition and other
points in the south:
Mayor Swiit Enjoyed It.
Mayor Swift has enjoyed almost every
minute he has been on the road. He be
lieves that the excursion has done as
much for Chicago as the World's fair.
“Jus-t think of the enterprise and en
ergy." he said, “that It has taken to put
this thing through. No other city in the
world would have attempted it. The
management of these trains under Hor
ace Tucker. William II. Harper. Fred W.
Peck. Alexander H. Revell, D. K. Hill
and the rest of the officers of the associa
tion, has been wonderful. The First reg
iment has been made the most popular
military organization in the country, and
Chicago has received more favorable ad
vertising than could be obtained in any
other way. As a business investment I
believe the money spent was well placed.
We have all made friends with the people
of the south. They now know that we
are not different from themselves and
they will trust us with their trade. They,
on the other hand, have increased a thou
sand fold In our estimation. We have
had a practical experience with their
matchless hospitality and know more of
their resources than we could learn by
years of reading financial papers. The
journey has been a great success and I
.do not regret one moment spent with the
Tonight Fred W. Peck, Alexander II.
Revell and William H. Harper are proud
men. All express themselves as perfectly
satisfied with the excursion.
What Mr. Harper Says.
“All through the south,” said Mr. Har
per, the director of the excursion, “the
people have been given to understand
two things. One is that Chicagoans are
good fellows socially; the other, that we
want their trade and commerce. At no
time have they been allowed to think
that our excursion was simply for the
purpose of drumming up trade, but at
the same time all were impressed with
the fact that Chicago offered a market
for whatever they had to sell and that
our city stood ready to supply whatever
they needed In return. I was told by
business men In Atlanta, Savannah,
Charleston and Augusta that they would
at once begin the work of making trans
portation companies fall into fine with
this new movement. Freight rates will
be reduced, and a new era of commerce
will open for the northwest and the south.
We take no small pride in the manner
in which the excursion has been con
ducted. With over 1000 persons In the
party there has not been one serious ac
cident. The delays have not been great,
considering the long runs made, and, all
in all, the trip has been satisfactory."
Commerce Follows Friendship.
Secretary Stone of the Chicago board
of trade had no doubts as to the benefits
to be derived from the pilgrimage.
“Close on the heels of friendship comes
commercial connections,” he said, “this
is a certain rule. It has never failed,
and It will not in this case. I have made
the commercial effect of this trip an es
pecial study, and I know whereof I
speak. The south is interested in the
north, and It is ready to begin to get bet
ter acquainted as soon as an opportunity
offers itself. This excursion has been
the greatest success possible. It will
do more for Chicago than the building
of a railroad would have done."
Tonight Director William H. Harper
Is receiving many congratulations. On
almost every ear resolutions are being
signed by the occupants and presented
to him as representing the officials of the
Chicago Southern States association,
thanking them for the splendid arrange
ments and congratulating them on the
success of the excursion.
