frranduer surpassing the foudeet dreams
cheritAed by its humble founder, Dr.
Stethenson of Illinois, twenty-rive years
For eix hours today, under a bright
sod, 10,003 veterans tramped sturdily
jt the line of march and such was the
mepiration cf the moment that even the
fMlest of "the maimed and crippled
comrades found themselves adequate to
the ordeal of the five miles march.
The firing of a 6lute from the United
States steamship Michigan in the har
bor announced to the waiting veterans
t 10:10 that the command to mo-e
had b&eo given tnecomuiander-in-chiof.
Pour magnificent arches erected by the
citizens in different parts of the city
sarked the line of march. The most
beiutif ul of them was a maguifuect
tower and war arch at the intersection
of Woodward and Jefferson iveuues.
It was a veritable work of art.
Slowly and majestically the process
Ion. Btarted from Woodward and Adams
venues, with CommnnJer-ir.-Chief

When General Veasey appeared be
fore the reviewing 6tand, the vast coa
oearee of people clustered about the
campus cheered themselves hoarse.
The general reigned up his charger,
however, and paused. General Alger
aad the Detroit post, his escort, passed
by him and drew up before the review
Aof stand, fronting it with canes at a
jerarge. General Veasey looked on
arttli a gratified smile then lifting bis
-it gracefully from his brow, he al
Joaed his horse to pass with slow . .steps
fcefore them. A3 he passed the review
ing eland every occupant arose to his
Cast. Foremost was the great Jadhia
Sg liter. General Miles of the regular

jeeded, with his white gloved hands
initial above his sword hilt.
General Veasey reached the ead of
fifce eland and the Detroit veterans un

Chicago, Au. i. When May Conway
awoke at the Saerman bouse Saturday
morning she was borriiied to find her
husband, J. C. Conway, dead by her
aide. An empty bottle which had con
tained morphine, on the chair by the
bed, plainly told the story. The sui
cide is a c mpaaied by several sensa
tional features and the causo for Con
way's death is shrouded in mystery.
Conway was private secretary to
Manager Walker of the Illinois steel
sompany. and lived at South Chicago.
Tao weeks ago he ca'ne to the Sherman
house and wa f ssigned to room Xo. 307.
When ne registered he told Mr. Pierce
that he expected his wife in a short
time and that when she arrived tbey in
tended to take a trip to Philadelphia
and other enstern cities. He spent most
jf his time about the hotel barroom.
A short time ago a pretty woman
ame to the hotel and inquired for Con-
ay saying she was his wife. The wo
nan who claims to be the dead man's
wife is twenty years old, possessed of a
pretty face and figure. When asked
ibjut her marrkge she tearfully said
hat she had no proof that she was Con
way's wife. "We were married in Mar
quette," she said, "I don't remember the
name of the miniate nor have I a mar
riage certificate. When I asked him
for it he told me he would attend to
that and I trusted him."

Mr. Atkioaot, was present at the ses
sion and a3ked leave to make a motion
to expunge from the j jurnal of the
house the resolution ordering his ex
pulsion. He spoke earnestly in support
t his request and declared that he
Aouid rather die than suffer the dis
grace that attached to his name by rea
son of the occasion being spread upon
the pages of the journal. The Right
Hon. George Gosden, chancellor of the
xchfquer, abvieed Mr. Atkinson to let
the matter pass. Mr. Atkinson said
that he cjuld not let the matter pass.
He had been drummed out of the house
and if be was considered sufficiently re
spectable to remain within the precincts
of parliment he must have the question
of odium debated. If the house con
tirmed the disgac that had 1 een put
upon him he would resign his feat.

Washington, Aug. 5. Major John
Van B. Hoff, post surgeon at Fort Riley,
Kan., has sent to the war department a
battle-marked relic of the late cam
prgn against the Indians in South
Dakota. It is an ambulance guide
which has upon its field the sign of the
Red Cross. According to the terms of
the Geneva convention this cross, when
properly displayed, is respected by all
(ombatants in civilized warfare. There
are more than a dozon holes ia the
guide, made by the shots 'rom rthe In
diana' weapons, and Major Hoff in hia
letter accompanying ' it expresses the
opinion that the Geneva convention
cuts no figure in Indian warfare. The
guide wis one of those displayed in. the
Wounded Knee fight.

Girdwood wererantsd certificates for

two men until it went so far that both
the husbands threatfneJ to takee:h

in one of tas t thri.Iini due's and
tragedies which has ever b?n known.
Baker and Anderson were walking
toward each otber to aJj iat their diHi
cultifs. They had not proceeded far
when they jreived Mrs. Baker cem
irg towird tl)82i, to meet her husband
and walk home with him so that the
twomenwou'd not quarrel, but when
she was within a fw feet of her hus
bmd she said: "While you were absent

derson) s'.ared at me in a strange man

threw her arms about her husband's

men fought for their lives. They clung
to ee-h other for a few minute", and
Anderecn finally broke away and quickly
stepped back a couple of paces and
raising bis revolver tired at Baker.
His aim was true, for as Baker wai
ai.out to raise his arm to shoot Ander

arm and breaking it. Baker's weapon
fell from his hand, and Anderson then
tired three more shots in quick succes

the forehead and making a glancing
wound, while the third bullet entered
his left aids just below the heart, acd
the fourth bullet pierced the right
Baker dropped to the ground mortally
wounded and begged Anderson not to
shoot again. When Anderfon saw his
victim lying on the ground he placed
his revolver back in his pocket and
walked home leaving Baker and his half

Btker soon called f r help and her
wounded hnsband was taken to the

wounds pronounced them fatal. An

San Fhawcisco, Cai,., Aug. 3. L. W.
Martinez, aid-decamp to General
Montt of the Chilean insurgent party,
said that Marshal G rd at San Diego
had ordered Captain M.nzan of the
Itata to take all his men ashore until
legal procesdings are over. The ex
pense of this would be very heavy, ntd
as the machinery of the Itata has been
unshipped for repairs, there is no dan
ger of her running away. General
Montt has order d Manzen not to obey
the order unless the marshal brings
soldiers to force compliance, ne says
the marshall has exceeded his powers.
A dispatch from an Diego says Cap
tain Manzen denies the report that the
Chilean ship Maipo, which is said to
have had a heavy cargo of arms and
ammunition for tha. insurgents, has
sunk. Instead, he says she is anchored
in Iquique harbor. The report of the
founderiag arose from the wrong trans
mission of a Spanish message.

PHii.ADrxr.HiA, Pa., Aug. 3. -Cashier
John Hayes of the Keystone national
bank has filed his affidavit in the suit
brought by the assignee of ex-City
Treasurer Bardsley to recover 1925,000
alleged to have been deposited by
Bardsley in the Keystone bank, and for
which smount Bardsley held fourteen
due bills. Cashier Hayes swears that
but six of these bills are legitimate, and
they represent only 325,0O0, which was
the actual amount deposited by Bard..
ley. Ths other due hills, covering f 000 -000,
were given to Bardsley by Preei
dent Marsh with fradulent intent, not
one cent being deposited in return for
tbtm. The affidavit also avers that
there was guilty collusion between
Bardsley and Marsb in this matter.

Hid less favored territories, and should

'he report of the judge ndvocate-gercr-
il derives its chief interest from this do-
hsion on the vexed race question. As
us conclusions differ from the re ceo m
lipndatiocs of the cominander-in-cheif,
ihedispute is further complicated. The
Jecision s as follows: The question
proposed is whether there can lawfully
je two Jepartments covering the same
territory at the same time. Var in
stance, a department made up of white
posts and atolher f black posts, or one
Df foreign born and another native born.
I think the question must he answered
in the negative. Tne idea is contrary
to the usages and universal understand
ing of the order hitherto. If additional
jepartmen:s in states may be formed
n lines of co or and birth, they may b
jn line of personal antipathies orHGpon
disagreements of any kind. But with
out adverting further to the obvious
evils likely to follow fr m theestabiisV

t is enough that it is clear the rules
