Women's liclluf Corpn—Orainliiiotlicr Shcriilitn'^ imtl Inci- Acuta of the ltouulutt. Coi.i.'Mijns, O., Sept. 13.—The crush of people has been so great Mint all the. rail roads have been blockaded. Many train.s are side tracked, unable to enter the city. The triiiu wlili ii left Cincin nati at 8 o'clock yesterday was blockad ed ten miloH out of tlie cily. Among the passensers bolated were President Alii RUi, Becrctury Gross and Commissioner Goodalo, of the Cincinnati Centennial. There were hundreds in the city at mid- S: SALUTING THE BATTLK FLAG. Wita was one of the most interesting Incidents of t-llc parade and occurred on the corner of Broad and Third streets. The flags are those of Ohio. night who had no place to sleep, although the efficient arrangement committee pro vided quarters for one hundred thousand people. A dispatch was received from Pittsburg to the effect that Blx thousand people are left there because the Penn sylvania railroad can not furnish trans portation. There are fourteen railroads centering In Columbus, but they are un able to transport the thousands anxious to attend the encampment. Some Idea of the crowd can be ob tained from the'fact that 40,000 old sold iers wore cared'for Tuesday night at Camp Neil, aud 15,000 more at Camps Haydea and Denison. Fully 10,000 more old soldiers found places in various parts of the city. Not less than 2.1,000 soldiers came In Tuesday morning and during the day, so thai: there wore at least 50,000 in the oity. in addition to the 50,000 who inarched in the procession. The soldiera make up about one-half of the crowd, so that there were at least 200,000 stran gers hero. On account of the lateness of the trains thousands of veterans were unable to take a place in the parade. Post 28 of Chicago, which got in six .hours late, came near losing its place In yesterday's parade. The boys marched •up High street and reached Broad just as the Illinois division was- about to swing around the corner In front of the reviewing stand. The column halted 'ME MONITOR FLOAT., nud allowed the newly arrived veterans to take the head of the line. The late ness of the tralils and the big crowd of course caused considerable demoraliza tion, but probably not more tliau would have been experienced elsewhere. Co lumbus is just iiow experiencing the big gest event of her history. Her citizens seems to appreciate this, and are doing oil they can to take care of the crowds, but there ia no doubt about the fact that the town Is in the position of the am bitious young toad that swallowed the goose egg. However, the people are do ing the best they know how, and are getting along muoh better than it was believed they, could possibly -do. The splendid weather which prevailed added greatly to the success. TAE ENCAMPMENT BUSINESS BEGINB. The Grand Army encampment of 1890 will be held In Milwaukee. This was de cided upon by the national encampment •iato in the afternoou, the vote being unanimous. Indiapapolls and Atlanta, Gtt., made a flght for the honor, but finally withdrew. •Before the en campment ad journed, Gen. N. fmifa -w M. Curtis of Now York, Gen. Good man of California, Gen. J. C. Loni han of NewHamp fesiiire, Judge Ve sey of Vermont, and Congressman & Warner of Mis souri, were placed in nomimationfor ,the position of icommand.er-in 'chief. Senator -V Warher Miller placed Curtis in nomination in an o. A. R. BADGE. eloquent speech. It was 11 o'clock when Commander-in Chief Hea called the encampment to or der. In accordance with precedent, only delegates wero admitted The com mander's report was a lengthy document. It showed that the. present membership was :S20,!)S0, a gain siuce the encamp ment of a ycftr ago of 33,280, although nearly a,00i) comrades had died. The largest percentage of gain was in Ken tucky. The report went on to say: Notwithstanding the unusual political excitement which prevails throughout tlie country, and the well known fact that our ranks are full of active, earnest supporters' of the men and measures of the several political parties, not a single violation of Article II, Chapter 5, of our rules and -regulations, hue been brought to my attention. Our order is composed of thoughtful, patriotic'men, each anxi ous to discharge the full measure of his duty us a citizen according to his best judgment as to what his duty is. Fidel ity to convictions begets respect for the like personal quality in others. The -Tlo ally of comrades to the noble objects and sacml mission of our fraternity need not be, and, is not a flee bed, or its useful ness impui fed by honest differences of opluiott upon iu«sUotis ot Kovernmeatal5 policy. The UB'6 of the design of our 1adge for' a cheap political campaign device, has justly occasioned much indignation among the'eomrades in all sections. While nnable by legal process to prevent this attempt to degrade our non-partisan medal of honor, we can, and should, by reso lution, protest most earnestly and emphatically agfiinst it. No comrade who re spects his fra ternal vow, and no citizen other than a comrade, who respects him self, would wear this base imita tion. Butltseems that the action of this encampment JOHN P. RKA. is necessary to quicken that twnse of propriety inherent in all true Americans xrlitch appears for the time to have been comatose in a few ill advised and incon siderate persons." The pension was dealt with at length, and regret expressed that the bill re ported by the twenty first, national en campment had tailed to pass congress. Said the commander-in-chief: "By this failure, wholly inexplicable and Indefensible, thousands of our help less comrades—helpless because of their ievotion to their country in its extremity —are subsisting upon the charity of their comrades, or are paupers in the mighty wealthy republic which their unselfish valor saved. I can not fitly comment upon this subject. My emotions will not permit. It can not be that the peo ple of America will voluntarily continue to withhold from these heroic men that aid needed, to preserve them from the pauper's fate, and enable them to end their lives replete with past glory so full of present phin, so bereft of future hope in self-respected manliness." Voluminous reports were submitted by the adjutant general, judge advocate general, and quartermaster general. The report of the committee on pen sions, submitted by G. S. Merrill, gave A SHERMAN BUMMER. The Sherman Bummers ride through the street# with a ply or fowl and other provender tied on the back of their animals just as tliey did when they accompanied Sherman on liis march to the sea. rise to a prolonged and animated debate. It recited their action in regard to na tional pension legislation, and spoke in exceedingly bitter termB of the failure of the disability bill. The report was opposed by delegates from Kansas, Texas and other states, who aruued the en dorsement of a service pension bill. This was opposed in several vigorous speeohes by delegates, and finally the report of the" committee endorsing the "indigent bill" was adopted. AN EPISODE OF THE CAMP. Thore was an exciting Bcene during the afternoon session of the encamp ment. While the pension question was under discussion a number of papers were handed up to the chairman to be read. Among them was a dispatch from Presi dent Cleveland, acknowledging the re ceipt of an invitation to attend the en campment and explaining that it had been mislaid byhis secretary, and for gotten in the press of business. ^For this and his inability to be present, he expressed his regrets. The reading of the dispatch, according to some of the delegates, was followed by hisses, groans and cheers, and for fifteen minutes the encampment was in an uproar. Half a "IN GRANT'S CRADLE FOB LUCK. Grant's birthplaoa has been removed here entire and is a center of attraction. dozen motions were made from as many parts of the room to lay the dlspatoh on the table aud to refer it to the commit tee on pensions* Several delegates de manded vociferously the name of the officer or comrade who had taken it upon himself to extend theinvitation.and Gen. Keifer in an excited manner asked Commander Rea if he was responsible for the action. The commander re sponded in the negative, adding that he had no authority to Invite the president. Some of the delegates took advantage of the circumstances to malte a Rener&l on slaught npon the president's pension policy and his vetoes. Finally all the motions were declared out of order and the regular business was proceeded with. It has developed that the invitation had been extended by the local committee, to which body, the message was addressed, and that it had gotten into the hands of the adjutant general of the national en campment by an error in the exchange of papers. Republican comrades are ex pressing their regrets at the occurrence, but Insist that nothing transpired to which the president could have taken exception held he been present. WOMEN'8 RELIEF CORPS. As at former G. A. R. reunions the ladles are active, enthusiastic participants. The two great organizations, Women'# Sooiety and Wom en's Relief corps will hold their au nunl national con sul ions during the encampment.

The Sheridan Battalion, of Perry county, Ohio, the boyhood home of Gen eral Phil Sheridan, was presented with a handsome silk banner made by General Sheridan's mother, the last work of her lite. The battalion, 300 strong, under com mand of Col. H. C. Greiner, assembled on the east terrace of the State Capitol. Miss Nellie Sheridan, daughter of Col. John IJ. Sheridan, and niece of the late general, presented the banner, speaking as follows: "SENATOR HUFFMAN AND VETERANS: I take great pleasure in presenting tills little flag through you, to the Sheridan Battalion. I know it will be in good hands, for you have been tried. Carry it near the handsome panting which I see the battalion has of our Phil. No or.e was ever more devoted to that llag than he no one loved it more dearly." Hon. Joseph G. Huffman, of New Lex ington, accepted the banner, and on be half of the battalion returned thanks to the fair donor. TIIE BUCKEYE. That emblem of Ohio, the buckeye, is playing very prominent part in this en campment. Bronze buckeyes, with a medallion of Grant on the inside, are used as the badges of delegates. Ev erybody on the streets is wearing buckeyes attuched to red, white and Odd Fellow* Going to the Coast. WICHITA, Kan., Sept. 18.—The Sov ereign Grand Lodee, I. O. O.
