EVANSVILLE, Ind., Oct. 12.—President
McKinley and his cabinet came from
Chicago to attend the national reunion
of the Blue and the Gray. A heavy
rain was falling but, despite this, 10,000
veterans and visitors thronged about
the railroad station, and the veterans in
gray vied with the veterans in blue in
tendering a tremendous ovation when
the presidential party arrived.
Owing to the short stay of the presi
dent the party was at once escorted by
the Cleveland Grays and reception com
mittee to the fair grounds, where Presi
dent McKinley delivered an address.
After the speeches the presidential
party was escorted back to the train,
followed by a long line of veterans,
marching in army order, the Blue and
Gray shoulder to shoulder.
