and cloudy. The steamer "Excelsior , "
with the congressional commission ,
the "Tollapoosa .with David Davis ana
party and the "Dispatch" with Presi
dent A rthur und parly , all arrived
shortly after 0 o'clock this morning.
A great crowd was on the wharves to
receive them. All the naval vessels
manned their yards and fired salutes
on the arrival of the president. Gen.
Hancock and sUftwero the first to greet
president's party and bid thorn wel
come to the historical spot. The
Yorktown commissioner is not very
enthusiastic over tho" prospects of the
celebration. Beyond the visiting mili
tary and civic organizations , not over
5.000 people had arrived up to 10
o'clock to-day. The harbor is filled
with sailing crafts of every descrip
tion , all gaily decorated. To-day's
ceremonies will bo devoted to the
laying of the cornerstone of the Yorktown -
town monument by the Masonic or
ganizations present.
YORKTOWN , Va. , October 18. The
program for the reception of the presi
dent was changed this morning. The
presidential party did not proceed di
rectly to Yorktown , but went first to
Hampton lloads to join the French
and German guests , with whom they
are expected to arrive thia evening.
When this fact became known the
Masons proceeded with the ceremonies -
nies of laying the corner stone of the
Yorktown monument. Beneath this
atone was placed a massive copper box '
containing documents and publications
bearing npon the event , a Bible and a
copy of all the newspapers published in
Virginia. A silver plate was on the box ,
suitably inscribed. Thoceremonies were
in charge of the grand lodga of Vir
ginia. The procession included , be
sides the Virginia lodges , many lodges
of Philadelphia. The stands around
the monument were filled with specta
tors. The assemblage was called to
order by Senator Johnson , chairman
of the commission. Rev. Robert
Nelson uttered prayer , which was r'ol- music. Governor Holliday
delivered an address of welcome , after
which the corner stone was laid , the
operation being directed by Grand
Master Coles. Theceremonios were very
impressive. At Lafayette hall , near
by. where the French andy German
guests and the president's party are to
bo received bv General Hancock and
the officers of the army and navy ,
there was a formal reception this
\ morning , a great many ladies being
present. The third New Hampshire
regiment , of Concord , landed amid
considerable enthusiasm. Largo crowds
thronged the dusty roads leading to
the camp , and the booth * ) und the side
shows done a thriving business. At 11
o'clock the people began assembling in
the vicinity of the monument , where
preparations for the second and main
corner-stone laying were being made ,
but the ceremonies were delayed
in | consequence of the non-ar
rival of the president. The crowd was
entertained by the concerts of the
Third artillery band and the North
Carolina State band. The day is ex
cessively hot and dusty. The walls of
the interior are covered with decora
tions of flags , md evergreens , the ;
whole making a beautiful appearance. >
Out at the camp , three miles from
hero , the soldiers have passed a quiet ,
hot and dusty day. There will be
concerts by the different bands this i
evening , and to-night there will be a
pyrotechnic display and a concert and
hop at Lafayette hall.
On land to-day the scenes hayo
been animated nnd to-night are pic
turesque. All is lifo and excitement ,
and the water is equally lively. Look .
ing out on the vast fleet , with twink
ling lights , and now and then to hoar
the shrill notes of the boatswrins'
whistles and the sharp tinging of the
ships' bolls , ono is reminded of the
days of the late war , in which Yorktown -
town and' its land nnd nnvnl forces
played such nn Important part. Out

to-day. Guard mounts and drills and
other "incidents of camy "lifo drew

To-day's events included the laying of
'the corner stone of the monument
the reception of distinguished
guesls , concorls by various bnndo ,
n pyrotechnic display , nnd a
grand - ball to-night. The corner
stone laying , owing to the delay in the
landing of the president nnd party ,
did not bpgin until 1 p. m. The pres
ident -was on board the Dispatch ,
which lay for some time in the harbor.
Admiral Wymnn and Gen. W. S.
Hancock visited him on board imme
diately after his arrival. This ex
change of courtesies occurred amid
the roar of guns from the war vessels ,
the crows of which manned the yards
in handsome style , the whistles o'f pri
vate steamers blow shrilly nnd the
crowds along thoahoro cheered lustily.
The president , Judge David Davis
and others landed in boats without
nny display nnd proceeded on foot to
the grand stand , where the mon
ument , was. A very Inrgo assemblage ,
mostly masons , wore there to rccoivo
the party. The stone laying was very
impressive , opening with a formal ad
dress by Senator Johnson , of Vir
ginia , chairman of the centennial con
vention , and was concluded with vo
cal nnd instrumental music , the sing
of the "Star "
ing Spangled Banner"
and several hymns " ' ' 'composed for the
occasion being rendered with grand
effect. Gov. Hnlliilay's address of
welcome was hearty nnd well timed ,
and replete with grjjteful sentiments
for the interest shown in the
event nil 'over the world. Most
Worshipful Priton > Skipwith Coles ,
grand master of Masons of Virginia ,
manipulated the silver and jeweled
trowel in jaying tliof corner stone.
The procession , which included , besides -
sides the Virginia lodges , many com-
nmndories of Knights Templar of
Philadelphia and .all . the grand mas
ters of the thirteen states , were under
command of Most Worshipful' Robert
T. Withers , P. G. M. , grand
marshal. The procession formed in
an open field , a mile away from the
monumental site , .and though the road
was dusly and rugged the march was
excellent. Beneath the cornerstone
was placed a copper box with a silver
plate on the lid inscribed as follows :
The corner stone of the monument
to commemorate tlia surrender of
Lord Cornwallis and the forces under
his command to the American and
French troops at Yorktown , Va. ,
October 15) ) , 1781 , was laid , on the in
vitation of the congressional commis
sion , by the grand' lodge of F. & A.
M. , of Virginia , on the occasion of
the celebration of the one hundredth
anniversary of that ovent. ,
The cf ntents of the box are as fol
lows : _ , ' '
One copy ' of the t Holy Bible , a cop
per coin of the United States , 1783 ,
United States , French and Canadian
bank notes , a Virginia treasury note
of 1802 , various specimens of confed-
'orato money , a copy of the program

Virginia , a list of the members of the
Yorktown centennial commission , a
copy of the music sung by the centen
nial chorus and the Masonic apron
worn by the late Rev. A. A. Baldwin.
The ceremonies were concluded about
2:30 : o'clock when the president nnd
Secretary Hunt were escorted to
Lafayette hall where an informal re
ception was held. The hall was gor
geously decorated with flags nnd evergreens -
greens and flowers. Tno reception
was nn informal though quite a bril
liant affair , the wives and daughters
of congressmen and army and navy
officers attending. The president and
Secretaries Blaine and Hunt were in
full evening dress and foreign guests
in their gay uniforms so striking when
compared with the uniforms of the
The French and Gorman visitors ,

mo guns and dipped the American
lag , which was returned by a similar
laluto on board the flagship. The
Franklin's batteries and the batteries
m shore also fired salutes. The dis-
inguishod foreign guests wore visited

same1 on shore this afternoon. The
iroworks and illuminations lasted till
late hour.
President Arthur will probably
eave hero for Washington to-morrow

A friend of J/JIIOH says that Conkling
is in nbsobuto control \Ymihington ,
not no dictator , but an a friend of Ar
thur , and hm power will be shown
within a month , That before Unit time
Arthur will have a full cabinet of hit
awn and ask no outside advice ; that
tint cnbinofr will not bo dictated by
Conkling , but will bo with hm sugges
tion or endornement. The same gen
tleman HIIVS ilnit Carr will probably bo
jiidorsodby | stalwart influence for sue
otary ot state , but Huuto.i , for trcai
irei-j will probably bo sacrificed , and
wssibly the candidate for the court of
ippoala will also bo sacrificed ,
jocauso , in the face of country
imposition , ho cannot be saved
xco.t by strong stalwart

A United States senator from Min-
nrsota will probably bo elected next
Tuesday. Secretary Windom snys ho
has no idea who li'it successor will bo.
In thin connection it is stated thnt the
president , being desirous to retain
Jnmca ill the cabinet awhile , nnd nt
thu same time desires to give the
treasury to n Now York man , will
probably nppoint n secretary of the
tre.isury pro ioin. , nnd Treasurer Gil-
tillnn's nnmo i mentioned for this po
sition. Secretary Windom states tnnt
if the sonrto does not mnko a public
report f the treasury investigation

tor-Jenoral James , even temporarily
in the cabinet , ia novr understood to
menu the removal of Assistant Post-
master-Geticml Tynor , for Iho simple
re.iaon that Tynor has not seemed
anxious to co-operate with the post
master-general in stamping out the
star route frauds. Tyner has not yet
returned to the city , but hin success
or's nnmo is expected to bo sent to the
senate on Saturday.

traight until about two weeks ngo ,
vlwn I 'wont off,1 you know. "
Bothard has boon "off" over since

The Evening Critio publishes a
story to the effect that n separation ,
lias been caused between Hon. John
13. Clark , member of com-ross from
the Eleventh district of Missouri , and
his wife , formerly Mrs. J , 0. Weil , a
clerk in the interior department , by
dissipation of the latter. The mar
riage took place less than a year ngo
and for some months wont well. Ite-
ccntly Gen. Clark has had occasion to
reprimand his wife for runuimm ? out
late nt night. Mil or absence continued
niqht nfter night nnd Clark , believing
all was not right , took n detective into
his confidence , who shadowed the
wife , and his labors were , it is said , re
warded by seeing the lady in company
with a male companion , go into n sa
loon. Ho reported his observations
to Clark , who , implored , his ' wifotc ,
cease her downward course , and not.
break up family ties. Shu promised
to obey the command of her husband ,
but did not keep her word , and a few
nights after returned tohor old habits ,
and kept it up , night after night com
ing home in an exhiliarated condition-
General Clark , finding that his ap
peals wore in vain , resolved yesterday
to leave her. In comnany with his ,
Friend , Lieutenant Fink , of the cap-
iol police force , he went yesterday af
ternoon to his residence nnd removed
nil his personal effects to a down town
hotel , whcro ho is now located. Mrs.
Clark still remains in the house in
Grant row. In view of the _ high
standing of the parties the affair has
created an int > ime social sennation.

tion , which was to have boon hold in
October J'.ltli has been
this city , post
poned until November 1st , at which
time it is claimed it will surely como
oil' . The meeting is for the purpose
of tryini' to reorganize the present
pooling arrangement on Missouri river
freight business. The pool has been
very to the roads leading
Chicago und St. LouisloMissQuririver
points -St. Joseph , Atchiso , Leaven-
worth and KunmiH City but the
Inrgo amount of new railroad construc
tion and the formation of now coinbi-
natoons during the last two years has
made it impossible to divide the busi
ness satisfactorily under the old agree
ment. The diflicultvH ; nnd eomplica-
tionu nriHinu' from the changed condi
tions of thu rends hayo borught the
pool to the vorgu of dissolution , and
were it not for the fuctthat the south
western roadn fear another raihoad
war , which would no doubt prove dis
astrous to many of them , it would
1''ivo censed to exist long ngo.
