havo been tho personal feelings of the
lato secretary of war General Russell
A Alger concerning recent incidents
of his olllcial career all sentiments wive
thoso of genuine happiness wero very
ovidontly banished yesterday afternoon
and evening by tho innguillcout wel
come tendered him by the pooplo of his
own city and stato From 4 oclock
when tho welcoming conimitteo crowded
into his private car upon its arrival at
Toledo until 0 oclock when tho gen
eral ceased grasping outstretched hands
tho scene was a constant spontaneous
ovation Smiles and tears repeatedly
struggled for tho mastery over the sec
retarys bronzed oountennneo as he
gazed into tho eagor faces of tho multi
tudes who loudly and convincingly in
sisted that Algers all right and no
dissonant voico was heard
Darkness fell during tho speeches
from tho reviewing stand in front of
tho city hall giving opportunity for
throwing a searchlight upon tho fea
tures of General Alger drawn in crayon
on a canvass 10 feet wninro hung from
tho city hall front and surrouutlod by
patriotic decorations A great crush at
the indoor reception was tho fluid fea
Tho special train which met General
Alger and party at Toledo consisted of
six coaches It earned 500 members of
the reception committee When the
Pennsylvania train arrived the generals
car was besieged by friends General
Alger was escorted through the recep
tion train and greeted by all Headed
by about 300 bicyclists over 1000
niurchers escorted General Alger from
tho Michigau Central station by a cir
cuitous course leading past tho generals
home to tho reviowing stand Fairbanks
post carried two great banners sti etch
ing half across tho street which de
clared There is only ono Alger
Mayor Maybury after calling to
order said General Alger I should
despair sir of being able to voico tho
heartiness of this wolcomo woro it not
already shown in this vast concourse
through which you havo passed It will
go fortli to tho world sir that where
you aro best known there you aro host
beloved and best appreciated It will
go forth to tho world sir a duo notico
that tho standard of high character
built up by patienco nnd persovorance
honosty and uprightness cannot bo
thrown down by slander
Governor Pingreo in his speech nindo
on behalf of the stato mado some
pointed roferoncos to incidents leading
to Algers homo coming and fired some
characteristic shots at tho nowspipers
which ho assorted woro largoly respon
sible The governor said that Algers
best service for his country was in his
ofllcicnt management of tho wur depart
ment Said he
Tho people of Michigan will remem
ber tho indignity to which tho stato has
been subjected Iu time thoy will conio
to know who is responsible for it I
think thoy already seo that politics
makes cowards of some men iu both
high und low positions They will iu
time despiso tho official uo matter how
exalted his position who truckled to tho
uowspapers or who considered money or
influcuco iu any form
I havo como to boliovo that tho insti
tution most dangerous to our form of
government is tho nowspaper Its
boasted liberality is rather license It
has no scruple and no consoiouco
There aro of courso exceptions but I
speak of tho press asu whole Because
you General Alger would not bow to
thorn aud couduct tho war department
iu the interests of tho combines the
army contractors aud tho commercial
interests which control tho newspapers
you became a marked man
Home Without u Urietuure
General Alger responding said I
can command no language to express
my gratitude to you for this royal wol
como to my homo I am glad from the
bottom of my heart to bo released from
oflicial care and to again enter tho old
homo und live among the people of
Since I went away two and a half
years ago as you know tho country
has pased through u terrifto struggle
The oflico of which I was the head was
taxed to tho utmost of evory maus
strength who occupied any position iu
it I gavo my best thought and honest
effort and did overythiug I could to
carry out my part of that great work
What has been dono is a matter of rec
ord aud I am perfoctly willing to rest
the case with my countrymen Every
trausactiou ovory order aud overythiug
that was dono iu conducting that war
is a mutter of record and tho people
have a right to have that record searched
Aud uow my follow citizens I come
home without a grievance Duiiug that
btrugglo and whilo that great work was
upou mo I can truthfully ay that I
had from the president all tho support
that ho could give
The closiug sceno was a reception iu
tho city hall corridor Mrs Alger and
u score ot otli r ladies with several of
tho generals relatives viewed tho scene
from a cauopied decorated platform
built into tho mam stairway and thou
