Before the starting of the procession ,
the rooms of Custcr post wore alive
with zealous and patriotic ladies.
They had _ spent the greater part
of the morning in fashioning fragrant
flowers into beautiful boquets for decora
tion purposes , They worked with a will
and kindly appreciation of tlio hallowed
duty enti listed them to perform. They
were aided by the generosity of the la
dies throughout thu city , fiom whom , in
grateful remembrance , came hourly
brilliant and beautiful collections of
fresh , ripe flowers.
The ladies continued at their work
v until the hour for the starting of the pro
cession , when they took uosition in car
riages assigned to them. They were

ters , Maggie , Bessie and Frances ; Mrs.
lf. D. Meade and daughters Grace and
'Florence ; Mrs. II. P. Thompson , Mrs
.Judgo Havves , Mrs. General Strickland ,
Mrs. Kohlmoyor and Mrs Heller. These
ladies were profuse in their thanks to the
ladic.-i who had contributed so liberally to
the decoration committee.
For two hours after 2 o'clock yesterday
sjOftornoon every conveyance that could
bo procured was utili/.cd in carrying the
crowds of people to the scene of the memorial
morial service at Prospect Hill cemetery.
The street cars worn taxed beyond their
' . canncity , carnages by the hundred made
' frequent trips from tlio city , and many
-ivlsitors iu lieu of a moro convenient anil
ijrapid moans of transit walked to the
cemetery. At ! ! o'clock it was estimated
. that fully 8,000 , people had passed within
Mho cemetery gates and were resting
under the cooling shade trees. The com-
i mittoes had failed to erect any speakers'
L tund or seats , and the crowd tramped
. all over the cemetery in a vain attempt
to locate the spot where the
services would bo held. It was nearly 4
"o'clock when the people answered to'tho
call ot the Fouilh infantry band and as-
Bumbled in a prettily shaded grove in the
northwestern portion of thu cemetery.
' After the selection by the band , Marshal
Alleo briefly addressed the assembly re
calling to their attention the honors duo
ito the bravo men whoso graves they had
'assembled to decorate.
The Lotus Gleu club then rendered in
"ft feeling manner "Rest , Soldier Rest. "
Prayer was offered by tlio elmmlain.
Marshal Alice then introduced the
orator of the day , the Hon. John M ,
Thurston , whoso applause was greeted by
* onthusiistio nluieriug.
Mr. Thureton said :
"Cover them over with beautiful flowers ,

A quarter of a century since Sumpter fell.
It Is dlfllciilt to realize that It has been so
long. The beardless soldier of sixty-one Is
the sray haired veteran of eighty-
six. The children of that time
are the men and women of today.
Hut , to-day , the past came back to us and In-
tcrvonlni ; years no longer dim our vlsloii
and wo recall Its sacred years aijain.
I have been told that a grain of wheat , re-
surrcrted from the catacomb * ot Home , where
It had lain burled beneath the accumulated
dust of the centuries , exposed to the .spring
time , rain and sunchlnc has reinitiated Into
iiiecn and vigorous life. So let us heie to
day lesurrecl fiom the catacomb of the > e.irs
each priceless scud of memory connected
with the dally lives and deeds of those so
dear to us. and with Uio him ot pur tears and
the .sunshine of our love make them to bloom
and blossom once airaln ,

Wo meet to-day , not only to strew the praves
of our heroes with llowors. but to tell the
story of this great conflict truthfully and
plainly lhat the youths of the land may for
ever bo prepared U defend and maintain the
causa of freedom and union.
The heroic achievements of our own sol
diers will not sulfur by comparison with
those of other lands. But it is not for their
bravery alone that this great nation holds
them in such high esteem and pays them such
dlftlngulshcd honor. It Is because ot the
glorious character of the cnuso
In vvhlbh they fought. They fouuht
and won tholr battles that toicver and ever ,
on land and on sea. nt home and abroad ,
wherever the ll.ig of the union kissed the air ,
the rlgiitn of American citizenship should bo
respected and enforced.
Sleep In peace. The Ktailnus prinelcles
for winch you tought can never be assailed
again. Sleep In peace. The men whose free
dom you achieved will bless you to the end
of time. Sleep In peace : the union you pre
served remains torovei. Liberty , equal
riches and lustlco is the heritage ot yom de
scendants till the judgment day.
The address was a brilliant one
throughout and was closely followed by
those who were so foitunato us to get
within hearing distance ot the speaker.
After the address the members of the
( } . A. H. performed the service of decor
ating with floral tributes tlio graves of
their dead comrades. The visitors then
withdrew , leaving the silent city of the
dead covered with flowers , mute tributes
of loving hearts.
The parade was a "daisy. "
Tlio police made no arrests to-day.
The exercises at tlio cemetery wore
very largely attended.
'J ho weather could hardly have been
improved upon.
There were exactly eighteen open car
riages in tlio procession.
The " 15and of Hope" was out in full
force in one of Dowroy & Stone's wagons.
The trains on tlio Union Pacific and U.
& M. brought in a largo number of "con
men. "
The small boy turned out un masse ,
and large numucrSof him frescoed the
streets and sidewalks along the line of
The music for the occasion was fur
nished by four bands.
On Farimm street tlio decorations were
very sparse and unostentatious. S. P.
Morse's , Polack's , Newman's , Dewey &
Stone's and Cheney & Olson's were
among the establishments decorated.
Yesterday Wcbbpost , G. A. R. ,

They consisted of thirteen mun under
tlio command of G. t. Urayton. They

Commander I ) . Hurley. Chiet Marshal
Alleo and Aid Clarkson were also in
iittondanco. Uoth posts , headed by the
Miihienl Union baud then marched up to
the city.
The police appeared witii their new
hats , Marshal Cummings , Captain Cor-
mick and Sergeants MaUa and Mostyn
in tlio front line. Each bore a largo
flower upon his lapel of the peony
order , with tlio exception ot the
captain , who sOamed to have
been decorated by'somc thoughtful hand ,
which considerately bestowed a blush
rose. The physical appearance of the
men was generally commended as thov
advanced , but , it "was remarked that
some of them stood in mscd of in
struction in the science of marching.
Though not so numerous as on last
Decoration day , the appearance of the
Fourth infantry wiis not less impressive.
There were two companies of about
lifty men in line , E. and K. commanded
respectively by Lieutenant Loyden and
Captain Noido , vyhilo the whole was
under the direction of Colonel Kent.
They marched with military air and
ardor to the excellent miisio of their
band , under the leadership of Drum-
Major Jo.iouh Novotti.
In the cemeteries of St. Mnry and Holy

Frank D. Garrity , assisted by their
daughters , Clara and Frances Garrity ,

other resting places of thd'doad. They
bore witli tlienl a largo flag , provided es
pecially for tlio grave of Gen O'Neill in
Holy Sepulchre cemetery.
Custor Post turned out about sivty
strong. They were the well known
members of this active post , who
have done so much to porpotuatn
the celebration of tlio day in Omaha.
Some of thorn have added to their gray

A Union Pacific IlrakcMinn Sleets a
HlraiiK and Siulilon Dealli.
Advices received at the Union Pacific
headquarters yesterday evening detail
the sad and mysterious death of u brakeman -
man named Edward Uarcluy , who was
one of the crew which came in on the
first section of yesterday's overland ox-
press. The train consisted of several express -
press cars loaded with perishable goods ,
three or lour emigrant sleepers , and a
way car , and left Green Uiver an hour
late. It was brought out by a freight crow ,
one of thu brakoincn being liarclay , who
was a ruau about twenty-live yours of ago.
According to Urn statement of a pas
senger , Uarclay went on top of the train
at about the timo-it entered-the Hitter
Creek valley and his failure to return
was first noticed at Hock Springs. A
Roaroh through all the cars failed to dis
cover him and the train proceeded as far
as , fcMsuu , this side of Itavvlins , without
his showing up. Ldson was reached
nbout 2 o'clock at night and ns the train
pulled in another of tlio crow went up
through the "lookout" and climbed over
tlio emigrant sleeper ? , upon thereof
roof of one of them seeing a
ghastly spectacle. There prone
upon his back laid the missing
Kdward IJarclay , blood oo/lng from his
cars , nose and mouth. Ho was stone
dcail. The body was taken down from
its singular resting place and carried to
Carbon , where it was left for ollicial in
vestigation ns to the cause of the death.
The only plausible theory advanced is
that Harclny , when ho went on top of the
train , found a tramp there and that in an
encounter with him ho was slugged to
death The trainmen say that there is
no bridge , tunnel or fchcd from Green
Hivcr to Carbon that a man could not
clear standing up ,

C. Raymond who was sent to the county
jail for thirty days the lastpf April for the
larceny of a roll of carpet from a car at
the Union Pad lie depot. Ho claimed to
bo an ignorant Italian nt that time and
pretended that ho could speak in L'ng
lish. Ho served his tliiity days in jail
and was released on Sunday. Yesterday
afternoon ho wont through tlio house of
Foreman Barnes of No. 2 hose company ,
at 1008 Douglas street , and carried oil'tx
lot ot silverware , some pocket handker
chiefs and other articles. Ho was arrested
by Olllccr Rolls and taken to the city
jail. He gave his name as John Uoij.
Shortly after ho was locked up ho made
an excuse which secured his temporary
release from his cell. As soon as ho
reached the corridoi lie made a break
for liberty , but was caught by Jailor Mc
Donald .just cs he was petting out of the
door. \ \ hen Night Jailor Poironot came
on duty Raymond made a second at
tempt to escape , and came very near
buiiif : successful. Just as Pcironot was"
opening Hie cell door to allow Raymond
and another party to pass out to the
closet , Raymond made a spring for the
door. The jailor lorced the other pris
oner back to the cell and locked the
door , but by that time Raymond had
turned up Farnaiu sticot , and wus head
ing toward the court house , closely
inusucd by Marshal Cummings , Sargeant
Mat/.a and one or two other policemen.
At Seventeenth street the procession was
met by County Jailer Joe Miller , who
took a hand in tlio raco. Raymond ,
closely pushed by Poironct , turned up
Seventeenth and made a rush for the
barn in the rear of Air. Miliard's resi
dence. Into this he rvvcnt and was fol
lowed by Peironct. The fugitive showed
fight and was promptly knocked down a.
few times by I'eironet. Ho was finally
cowed and returned to the city jail , where
ho was idcntilied by a. picture in the
rogue's gallcrvas T. C. Raymond , wanted
in Kansas City for a burglary committed
in August , 188. " ) . He became very much
excited when ho was shown the picture.
Ho is a very muscular man and is re-
po > ted to have been a former partner of
Clarence Whistler , the wrestler.

WASHINGTON , May ni. [ Special Tclo-
cram to the Br.i : . ] "Closed" were the letters
brond and long that occupied a card which
liuui ! aunlnst tlio white house door this morn
ing. Thousands of people went there , how
ever , before It became generally known that
the place v\as not open to the public. Many
cagrer to gain admission rattled the door and
called out the unities of the attendants who
usually iccelvo the caller : ) , and then went
away. At an early hour Colonel Wilson ,
superintendent of public buildings and
Ktomuls outeied the executive mansion ,
and , after consiiltlm ; Colonel Lainont

of other matters pcitalnlm ; to the

Arlington to decorate graves. Colonel
Lninont said late this afternoon ho had had
all the requests that genius could conceive
of fromiepresontatlvcsot the press for an
opportunity to see something of Iho paity

Imiy correspondent icijucstcd , after they were
tcld they could not bo admitted under any
conditions , that they mlqht peep Into the corridor

refused , she bogged to bo allow cil
to enter the cast parlor and
look In just a moment and take n ullmpso
tluough the blue room while thu party vveio

also denied. Then thev asked to bo furnished
with a description of tliiulicsscs orthuMUsea
Folsoni , Cleveland , Nelson and other white
house ladies. This will likely bo granted on
Wednesday morning , and It may bo that n
limited number of repiescntattvcs of thu
press will bo admitted to the white house for
a few ni inn tea late on Wednesday evening ,
to uet a description of the lloral decoration.
It Is undei. tnod that alter the festivities , the
niairiano will bo described by some ono at
the white nouse , and by that means thecoun-
tiy will know what It was. A blunt re
fusal has been given to all ic-
qtiests to gain admission to the
executive mansion on the nlu'ht of the mar
riage for the purpose ot lining rcroitoiin !

toinoon and attci the hour for the ciiiomony
no one will be admitted to the ground , and
ut the Umo ol the ceremony It will bo seen
that tho.-o are no Inteilopcis Inside the en
closure. Another sipiad of police will do
duty on the ntieels adjacent to the white

will hangaioiind In the stieets dining the
atternoon , o\enlng and night In eager ex

unusual. This ciowd will bo amply piovlded
lor.H Is amusing to hear . the dlplo-
mates trom all paits of the
woild now In Washington talk ofthoap-
pioaching marilago. Theioaic a gieat many
things connected with the coming event
which they cannot undeistand. A lot of
them got together and discussed the ques
tion to-day. They tcel that they should do
something to eelebiate the event , but since
none ot them have Invitations to be piesent ,
they fear to move lest they oflend ! iis excel
lency. The diplomatics cannot understand
why the engagement was kept such a pi o-
found scfict , nor v\hy the announcement
came so near to the date of the wedding
day. Then , the bride coming to the
groom to iet maided pu/rles
them bejond measure. They undeistand
that in Ameiira the gioom Usually goes alter
the biide , and they aio nt a loss to undei
stand the piesldcnt's ' movements. Indeed ,
the diplomatics are vvoiiled. They aroatiaid
of committing some awful Impiopilcty , and
yet they don't know what to do , to do the
proper thing. Ono thing which pel pluses
them most Is whether tliny sh.ill congratulate
Jli. nnd Mrs. Cleveland , and how , They fnil
to see why the president is not publicly mm-
rled , and why they mo not asked to assist. A
imviitc wedding at home , 01 any other place ,
thi.'ysav thov could undeistand. II the presi
dent had nnaiigcd lor his inanhigeat ItuC-
falo they would have comprehended it , but to
have hisbiido biought to liiin alter the fash
ion of thciclk'tenionnichs ot the old wmld is
beyond their power ol liiteipretatlon. They
.say it is not Amei loan , nnd It Is Imllrroui to
hear their comments upon it. The diplomat
ics aie nlso pu/ylcd as to whether they should
picsent irilts to the ptcsidont and his hiide ,
and so far they have been unable to ascertain
if it will be pioper , or whether the gilts , if
sent , will bo received. It Is cus
tomary to maUo loyal gilts in
ncaily every countiy in the woild
when a crowned bend takes to himself a wile ,
but so many uuusmil things have already at
tached to this event that they cannot leaoh a
conclusion. So they remain In mental mis

priound of ignoinnce. The ndnlxtcis would

"That attempt was undo , if my memory

"There were three of the vvould-bo

Italians , aS their names indicate , There
was a fouith man suppo.sTdgto bo in the
conspiracy a Dr. Bernhardt , of London ,
who mruusncturcd the bombs.
"Xnpolcon III. , If you remember , re
sided in Italy before ho became president
of France. While tliero ho hccamo a
member of an Italian soeiety whoso
members took oath to make uvcjy en
deavor to oppose political tyranny and to
overthrow all forms of monarehial gov

see."Napoleon , In accepting tlio presidency
of France , and in his subsequent over
throw of the republic and establishment
of the empire , violated his oath , and the
attempt upon his life was the work of
members of this society.
"Arsini , Pierre and Do Rttdio wore ar
rested , trieu and convicted. The two
llrst mentioned were beheaded in Iho
Place do Grevcs. 1 witnessed the execu
tion of Arsiul , and a Handsomer man
than ho never lived , Ho was six feel
four inches tall , with a head and face ns
noble as his physique , and a magnificent
black beard , reaching far down on his
breast. It was a ghastly scene in the
early morning , before light , with smok
ing , timing torches all about. He stood
erect upon the scallbld , and was strapped
onaboaidfiom his feet to his nook.
Then the executioner touched the spring.
Arsini fell1' forward on nis face , and at
the same in.stanttho heavy , dull blade of
iron came darting down upon the back
of hl.s neck , and rebounded back to its
notch in the topof the scallbld. The
head and long , black beard rolled into
the basket , a stream of red blqod gushed
up , unit Arsini was dead.
"Do Hudio did not die by the guillo

empress , and begged for his life. His
sentence was commuted to imprisonment
for life at Cayenne. While being trans-
