Be AdrtrcMes the Bnnlnein Men at the Commercial Exchange and Ilcvlews the Great Military Parade. The Great Celebration. Pnii.ADKi.i'iiiA , Pa. , Soot. 10. The day opened bright and clear , and since daybreak people have been astir. The sounds of fife and drum early told that preparations were being made for the grand street demonstra tion of the nation's protectors. Nearly thirty thousand soldiers passed In view before the chief magistrate and high officers of this and other governments before noon , and at their head rode General Sheridan. There are at least halt a million strantrers within the city's gates to-day. Not a single accident of a serious nature marred the occasion. 'Re president was escorted by the first city troop ot cavalry from Lafayette hotel to the commercial exchange , where a reception was tendered him. Members of the commercial , stock , drug , grocers and Importers , maritime , petroleum , lumbermen , textile nndoolex - ahangrs4knd of the board of trade had as sembled In the large ballon the third floor. On the arrival of the presidential party they were accorded hearty cheers. The president of the commercial exchange then Introduced the president , who said : "lam glad to have the opprtuulty to meet so large a representation ot the busi ness men of Philadelphia. It Is well that wo should n t entirety forget. In the midst of our centennial jubilee , that the aim and pur pose of good government tend after all the advancement ot the material Interests of the people , and Increase of their trade and com merce. It has sometimes occurred to me that In the hurry and rush ot business there might well oeinf used a little more patriotism than we are wont to see , and a little more recognition ot the fact that wholesome political sentiment Is closely related not only to general good , but to the general success of business. Of course our citizens engaged In business are ( julck to see the bearing of any policy which the government may adopt , as It directs their personal success and their accumulations , but 1 would Ilico to see that broad and pa triotic sentiment among them which can nee bejond their peculiar personal Interests , and which can recognize that the advancement of the entire country Is the object for which they may well strive , even though It results In the diminution ol constantly Increasing prollts. And must we always look for the political opinions of our business men precisely where they sup pose their Immediate pecuniary advantage Is lound. But how vain it Is to hope for the eradication of sellish motives In the affairs of life. But I am reminded that we celebrate to-day the triumph of patriotism over selfish ness. Will any ono say that the concessions were not well made or that we are not to-day in lull enjoyment of the blessings resulting from a due regard tor all conflicting Interests represented by thu different states which were united 100 years ago. 1 believe the complete benefits promised to the people of our form of government can be secured by the exercise of the same spirit of tolerance for each others' rights and Interests In which It had Its birth. This spirit will prevail when the business men of the country cultivate political thoughtswhen they cease to eschew partlclpatation in political action , and when such thought and action is guided by better motives than purely sellish and ex clusive bcuollt , I am of tlio opinion that there is no place In the country where such a con dition can be so properly and successfully maintained as here , among the enlightened and enterprising business men of Ph.lla.tel phla. " Alter his speech President Cleveland hold a reception , assisted by Secretary Bayard ana Secretary Fahchltd , ex-Prrsldont Haves , Governor Beaver , Mayor I'eltor , A. J. lroxel and George W.

The third attempt to have a trial race to choose the ablest yacht as the defender of the America's cup against the Scotch yacht Thistle resulted In ono of the best contests over soon on these waters. There was a strong wind blowing from north to northwest all day. It reached n velocity of forty miles an hour. Added to the splendid condition ot the elements was the excellent judgment of the committed , who decided , after the yacht got under w.iy , that a triangular race should bo sailed. That decision gn\e. thu contestants a course of thirty-eight mile * to sail over with thu wind on every band , at every turn uud In every weather except during tlio first part to leu- ward , when the Mayflower sailed bettor than the Volunteer.

( Special lelcgrnm t the BEK.J It was madu known to-day that the condemned anarchists had held a consul tation among themselves to talk over their case lu Its various bear I u us. A close friend aud member of the defense committee saw them afterwards , and w hen ho loft the jail was In duced to make known the result of the dis cussion. Ho said they had talked over two things first tlio question ot whether they shall appeal to the supreme court of the United States , and , second , the great petition which It Is proposed to get up , pleading for executive clemency. The last measure was voted against unanimously. The condemned men said they had done nothing for which to ask the pardon of society ; that society ought rather to ask their par don. As for an appeal to the supreme court , that Is n different thing. Some ot them felt that they should use every resource to bo found In law and than their death , It consummated , "will accurst ) the system. " The person who told this said In addition that no matter what the final decision ot the men was , their friends would go ahead and make every effort for a reversal of the judg ment by the United States supreme court. In the event ot that falling a petition would bo gotten up. A local paper states this evening that there Is n lover's quarrel between Miss Nina Van Xnndt and August Spies , This morn ) ng the lady called at the jail , BO- cording to her usual custom , and went to the west end of tliti cngo. Spins , who was pacing the farthbr end of thu corridor , soon saw- her nnd coming to the screen thu pair engaged In what Miemed to bo an Intensely Interesting conversation for a few minutes. Sp'cs ' then turned on his heel aud walked avvny , while his wnltlng bride called to him without receiving n reply. Then she slowly turned nwny nnd loft the lull. As she passed out her eves were filled with tears and when Tuinkov Pieieo said , "You nro going oarlv this morning , " her lips quivered lu n sob and tears fell as lier lips tremblingly said , "Yes. " About tun minutes Inter she returned and had n talk with Spies and when she loft at 10 o'clock .sliu seemed less unhappy , bploshna Peon treating her very coldly of late. Yes terday she stood fifteen minutes In the cage before ho condescended to notice her , and then his actions Indicated that hore.ardcd the confeimico ns something of n bore. It Ib suggested that the novelty of the foolish young womnn's Infatuation has probably grown dull to the anarchist and the dally vis its uro becoming tiresome to him. Mrs. Knglennd Mis.

B/MriMoui : , Sept. 10. | Special Telegram to the BKK.J A number of members yester day in the merchants' club house became en- gaeed in a political rontrovesy. The most prominent were : Dr. Pembroke Lea Thorn , ex-speaker of the house of delegates , and Colonel Gorrln Warlleld. surveyor of the port ot Baltimore , and Senator Gorman's chief lieutenant. Thorn accused Colonel Warlleld of being a tool of political bosses who run the city. Ho also said if the colonel would stop outside the club ho would kick him. WiirliPld declined to pay any attention to the doctor's remaiks. A few minutes later Wnrhelil left the club house , closely fol lowed by Thorn. When the pavement wan reached tl ? doctor repeated his threat ho had made libido the dub , and added that ho thought tint colonel was a cur. Warlield struck the doctor's live , which sent the old man to the rround , then the colonel walked away , and tlmdoctor.who Is probably twenty jenrs Wnrlield's senior , was taken In charge hy friends. Not long after DeCoursay Thoin. a young stock brokur , son of Dr. Thorn , hear : ! of the assault , and wont out to hunt up the colonel.
