Nature was at perfect peace and in har

Crowds commenced to till the
streets. The thoroughfares began

The crowds centered about the depots, and
there was the sound of the marching and

The preliminary work had been well
planned and admirably executed. There
remained nothing today but to realize all

the day are separately considered, and
united will form a word picture of the
most magnificent political demonstration in
the history of the Ohio campaign.
RECEIVED AT DAYTON.
The Inception Committer Meet Gov
ernor Foraker mitt Eacorts Him to
At a meeting of the general committee
of arrangements last Friday night, a com
mittee of prominent republicans was ap
pointed to go to Dayton this (Wednesday)
morning, to receive Governor Foraker
there aud ocort him to this city.
Tills morning at S o'clock that committee
left for Dayton in a special car attached
to the Bee Line's "Flying Buckeye." and
made the run to Dayton in forty-three
Governor Foraker had arrived from Piqua
just three minutes before the train bearing
the Springfield escort committee rolled into
the Sixth street station, and the committee
found him in the very midst of a large
crowd of enthusiastic Dayton republicans
who had gathered at the station to greet
The entire crowd resolved itself into a
sort of hand-shaking social and the forty
minutes which the Springfield party had to
wait for Its train were passed most agree
ably. When the Cincinnati train arrived
the escort committee's special car was at
tached to it aud the run to this city was be
gun. Mr. F.Ii. Loomis. of the Cincinnati Com
jncrcinl Cazittc, and Mr. F. B. Gessner, of
the Cincinnati Timcu-SUir, joined the com
mittee at Dayton and came with it to this
city to "do" the demonstration for their re
spective papers. Governor Foraker Is look
ing and feeling well, but is a trifle tired, as
his work during the campaign has been
hard and almost continuous. The trip to
Spriugtield was delightful. Governor For
aker was in the best of humor and enter
tained the party capitally. Following is a
list of those who formed the Governor's
escort from Dayton to Springfield:

Meeeption The (iovenor's 8peerh.
A great crowd of republicans gathered at
the Itee Line station this morning to greet
Governor Foraker on his arrival with the
escort committee from Dayton. The wide
walk along the railroad side of the Arcade
was literally lined with people, and it was
lmjiosilblc to make one's way through the
crowd. The Uuckeye club, as the general
reception committee of the day, was drawn
up in line facing the Hee Line track, to re
ceive the city's distinguished guest
"There she comes," enthusiastically
yelled a future president, iss the train
rounded the l'lutn street bend, and the
cry was taken up and reechoed by the
crowd. As the train rolled across Market
street Hattery E's cannon roared forth its
greeting to Ohio's gallant governor and the
battery continued the tiring until the gov
ernor's salute was completed.
The crowd surged toward the car which
contained the committee and the governor
and, as the latter appeared on the platform,
sent up a mighty cheer of welcome. Gov
ernor Foraker uncovered and bowed to the
crowd and then, escorted by the committee
and headed by the Hig six. marched
through the west entrance of the Arcade
into the hotel and up to the parlor.
An immense concourse of people gathered
in the Arcade, completely filling It, and
loud and persistent calls for Foraker made
the hotel ring.
Presently the governor, accompanied by
deneral Uushuell, General Keifer, Hon. It,
F. llayward and other prominent republi
cans, stepped out on the balcony. Governor
Foraker's appearance was the signal for an
outburst of wild cheering, and he stood
with his hands resting on the balcony rail,
bowing to the magnificent assemblage, a
full minute before he could gain the ears of
When the cheering ceased he spoke
briefly as follows ;
My Fellow Citizens:
I have not come out to make a speech.
but only to thank you for this most cordial
and complimentary reception. I like the
republicans of Springfield, they never do
anything by halves. (A Voico "You bet
we don't,") You are always on hand dur
ing the campaign and you are always at the
polls on election day. This afternoon we
shall try to find out whom we are running
against Some time ago it was Powell;
later, it was Grover Cleveland, and during
the past few days It lias been Jen. Davis.
(Laughter and applause.) We knocked
out Powell, we sent Grover Cleveland on
the back track, aud now we propose to
knock out Jeff. Davis. (Applause and
cheers.) I thank you most sincerely, citi
zens of Springfield, for this grand recep
tion. I realize that while this Is a most un
expected compliment to me, you are honor
ing the party which I represent, and as the
representative of that party, I thank you.
We shall go to the polls next Tuesday, aud
our presence there will be followed by one
of the most triumphant victories ever re
corded in the political history of the state
Governor Foraker bowed and retired, the
crowd cheered, and the Hig Six band'blend

in the least from the valuable services of
the many loyal republicans who have con
tributed to the success of the great meet

llayward has been the guiding spirit of the
entire enterprise and has been unceasing
in his endeavors to insure its success. That
he has achieved success and that today's

not the slightest doubt
As a matter of fact the republican meet

successes. The great ball of republican

In size and momentum and on next Tues

of this sketch is familiarly called by his in

cepted a position with the Champion Ma

into business for himself, opening a hat
and gents' furnishing store In a building on
Main street which has since given way to
the more pretentious Sterritt building. On
the t!tth of October, 1872, he married Miss
Florence Phillips, a sister of Mr. Jason W.

his own establishment he took a position

year he took his first dip in politics and
was elected assessor of the Third ward.
Kver since that time Mr. Hayward has been
a prominent figure in loci! politics.
In the spring of 1ST!' he was given the
republican nomination for marshal, and his
personarrpularity and careful, systematic
work, secured his election when the re

Since 1S35 Mr. llayward has been asso

For the past three years Sir. Hayward,
has been a member of the repuWiean state

of that body. His political acumen
and ability as an organizer are recognized
all over the state, and these qualities, to

prominence among the politicises of Ohio.
He has been a member of the county
commitee four years, this being his second
successive year. His conduct -jf the cam

aggressive, and the campaign has been
marked by a vim and vigor selcom aroused
in any but presidential years. The grand

Clark county republicans next Tuesday,

made a record this campaigu of which he
may well feel proud.

The City llerked With llaga and Bunt
ing. The decorations around the city and on
the lino of march are quite profuse and are
admired by all who see them. In the busi
ness part of the city everything is covered
with Hags and bunting. Almost every bus
iness house is decked with a flag. Several
large flags are strung across the streets, and
one which Is the largest of all Is that or
the ltKi'trnMc. and has the following ban
ner which reads :
I GOVERNOR FORAKER I
REPUBLICANS OF OHIO.
Along the residence streets which are on
the line of march the flags are numerous
and are prettily arranged. One would
think that all the city was republican and
that no democrats lived here.
The speaker's stand In the big tent is
nicely decked with bunting, flags and pic
tures of Washington. Grant. Garheld and
Foraker in the center with his name hang
ing in immortelles. The governor can be
seen from every part ot the tent and the
view of Ohlos governor, surrounded by
the gaily decked stand and Springfield re
publicans and its beautiful ladies, will in
deed be pretty. The decorations are a sue
cess throughout, and among those that were
especially beautiful are the Springfield Seed
Company. Ulack's opera house, Bruce,
Hauk & Co.. The Great Atlantic and Paci
fic Tea Co. and the Uwciilic.
THE GREAT TENT.
The Canraas Amphitheater In Position
'What an audience we could pull with
our circus if council would allow us to put
our tent here." sighed Dr. W. S. Freeman,
of the Miller, Howe & Freeman circus, as
he watched his big tent rise on Market
The Doctor was right.
The work of putting up the big tent was
commenced Tuesday morning, and the
great cenvass monster was in position at
nightfalL The "side walls'' as they are
invariably called in circus parlance, were
not put up uutil this morning, however.
The tent makes a most imposing appear
ance. It has three 00-foot center
poles, is 120 feet wide by '220 long. It is
the tent in which the company gave Its
circus performance early in the summer,
and was run up by a gang of circus hands
brought over from Columbus. It Is lighted
bv three great coal-oil reservoirs of the con
ventional circus type.
The tent as arranged inside, seats a frac
tion over 5,000 iwople.but if the "side-walls"
are let down. 20,000 people can be within
range of Governor Foraker's voice. The
seats are made of stout joists ar
ranged as benches and running length
wise ot tlie tent The speakers' stand
is erected at the middle of the east
side of the paviilion, a position that
commands the best range of the audience.
To the left of the speaker's stand just
south of it are ranged the three hundred
chairs, trnm the wigwam, which are to be
occupied by the great chorus of male and
female voices. The speakers' stand Is
handsomely decorated with bunting, ban
ners, evergreens and festoons of the na
tional colors entwined together. In front,
m a group, are pictures of Foraker, Lincoln.
Washington. Garfield and other celebrities,
and shields, banners and patriotic designs,
occupy all the available space. It presents
a most inspiring appearance.
RECEPTION OF CLUBS.
The Visitors Well Beeelred by the Com.
inlttee anil Escorted to Headquarters.
The visiting clubs were nicely received
by the reception committee and the Big Six
band as they arrived during the morning.
The first to come in was the Foraker club
from Washington C II., with a band. Tbey
numbered 125 strong and made a nice ap
pearance, soon after was the arrival
of the New Carlisle club aad
then a special train of alx can broogBt la

were assigned to them, as published in ves-
terday's Heithlic. The visitors are all In
high spirits and are ready for the long
tramp this afternoon.
THE LINCOLN CLUB
Make a Magnificent Illaplay anil Takes
the ICng OIT the ltn.li.
Next to the arrival of Governor Foraker
the principal event of the day was the ad
vent of that justly famous political organi
zation, the Lincoln club, of Cincinnati. The
special train of eight cars conveying them
to this city, arrived at 1 o'clock, and was
received at the depot by the Uuckeye club
and a vast amount of enthusiasm. The
delegation, including many who came with
the club, numbered fully live hundred
strong, and made the most magnificent dis
play of the occasion. The celebrated union
military band accompanied the crowd, and
at the gtation headed the club, led by the
Uuckeye club. The entire procession, fully
two blocks In length, marched up Limestone
to Main, ami west on Main until the Ur.
1'fnt.tc office was reached. Here the pa
geant halted, the Buckeyes forming
on euner sute witn uncoered heads, and
the Clncinnatians passing through and
hatting. The band halted in front of the
office and played the Boulanger marcb-and
another stirring selection, to the rapture of
the crowd. The arrangement of the Boul
anger march played by the baud was the
finest ever heard in this city. In return for
the courtesy three rousing cheers were
given by the Hkitlic otlice force and oth
ers in the vicinity for the Lincoln Club and
three responsive cheers rolled back. The
Repuiimc was the only paper in the city
thus honored and lifts it's hat in acknowl
edgement of the compliment. The Lincoln
Club members all wore white hats and were
led by Hon. Amor Smith, mavor of Cin
cinnati. The 12th Ward, precinct A. (Jar-
field Club of Cincinnati, was also in line
and were a fine aggregation of gentlemen.
At the conclusion of the IJepuiilic's ser
enade, the procession moved on down to
Market and then to the Arcade which are
Lincoln club headquarters.
Cincinnati contribution to Foraker day
was a magnificent one.
