Today is Ladies' Day at the en campment and the ladies are do ing themselves,.proud. The pa rade this morning was one of the finest ever seen in the city and was eight blocks in length. W. L.

SPEECHMAKING IN THE PARK Eloquent Patriotic Addresses Delivered Last Night From Speakers' Stand. IMMENSE AUDIENCE CROWDE ABOUT THE STRUCTURE. L. H. Bailey Delivered Address of WelcomeGen. Torrence and Mrs. Starkweather Respond "With speech making at the stand in the park', a dance at the city hull and another at the pauiinu vilion on Second street, and annight. Indian war dance near the M. & I. depot, there was enough going on in town last night to entertain all Bemidjiites and their soldier visitors. When the speechmakiagbegan at o'clock in the park the seats before the "stand were tilled and the space around them for sev eral yards was packed with peo ple standing. That the latter re mained until the exercises closed bore eloquent testimony to the fact that the speeches were of an interesting order. The program was opened by the introduction to the. audience of Chiaf Bemidji, who was on the stand, and after whom the town is named. Th Pa rk Rapids band, a very creditable organiza tion, by the way, rendered an ex cellent selection. This was fol lowed by Mayor Ludington, who, in anew well selected words, in troduced H. Bailey, selected by/rnrn to give the address of welcome. Judging by the ap plause accorded the speaker when he stepped to the front, and that given during and after his speech, the people not only entirely approved, but were well pleased with the selection. Mr Bailey delivered a stirring and eloquent address. He compared the Revolutionary and Civil wars and spoke of the causes leading up to the latter, going back to the inception of slavery in Amer ica and following it up in graphic and lucid terms to the liberating of the slaves by the war. He mentioned the heroes of the war, paid a handsome tribute to John Brown and did not forget to speak of the trials of the Amer ican women during that terrible when their sons, husbands and brothers were at the front, and of the fortitude and bravery with which they stood up under the strain. A response on behalf of the G. A. R. was made by Gen. Eli Tor rence of Minneapolis, a man of good address and pleasing ap pearance, and past commander in-chief of the national G. A. R. organization. He put his audi ence in good humor at once by a few humorous and compliment ary remarks directed at the town and its people, and particularly at the audience before him. Th general thanked Bemidji for the cordial reception extended to the old veterans. His address con tained nothing dry and was of a different order than the usual run of such addresses. He graphically described the two battles of Bull Ru and gave vivid word pictures of incidents of battlo which seldom rind room in our histories, but which are of absorbing interest nevertheless. He took occasion during his speech to pay a glowing tribute to American womanhood and spoke forcibly of their bravery in sending their husbands and sons forth to battle for the Union. He said that the strength of the nation lies not its navies and armies but in its homes, and therefore depends more on the women than anything else. Mrs. S. Tarkweather of the W. R. C. responded to the ad dre ss of welcome on behalf of that bod y. She told several sto ries in tr ue Abe Lincoln style to TOMORRO W O BE A BIG DA Gov. Van Sant Will Be Here and Address the Veterans.
