Kr.w YOIIIC , August 13 James O. Dlainu
started on his homeward trip at 11 o'clock ' on
the Now York , New Haven & Harlem rail
road. The party consisted of Mr. and Mrs.
Ulalnc , Walker Hlalnc , Miss Ulaluc , Miss
Iod go and Colonel Copplngcr. Dlaino
drove from the Fifth Avenue hotel
nnd reached the depot ten minutes ahead of
time. A largo crowd had congregated on the
sidewalk opposite to the entrance at the de
pot , and when Hlaino stepped from his car
riage a loud shout went up from the throng.
During the few minutes' stav In tlm depot ,
Hlaino held an informal rect-ptlon , nnd when
the train left tbo depot lie wan loudly cheered.
When the Hluiiic train ran into Stamford
nt 11 : WI it was greeted with cheers from two
thousand or more men and women who were
waiting. When the cheering had subsided
Hlaino made a short speech , thanking those
assembled for their welcome. In closing ho
said1 "My request is that each and
uvery ono of you shall regard the
task of carrying Connecticut for Harrison
risen and Morton us imposed upon
himself. Helicvlng that you are axvakc to
your duty I shall proceed to Miilnu and ask
her republicans to showConnecticuttho path
In xvhlcli Blio should walk. I thank you ,
gentlemen , once more , and bid you good
At Hndgcport the assembly was larger and
even more enthusiastic than at Stamford.
It xvas marked by the same features. Hlaino
made a briet speech.
Half of Nexv Haven seemed to have
abandoned all other business ami to be in
xx-aitlng lo receive Hlaino xvhen his train ur-
rlved there. As at all other stopping places ,
the assemblage xvas made up of a largo pro
portion of ladies. Hlaino loft his car and xvas
escorted to the platform outside of the depot ,
xvherc ho madii a short speech.
At Meriden 2,000 people welcomed Ulalnc.
Ho spoku as folloxx's ;
"I beg to thank yon all for this compliment
in greeting mo so cordially. 1 have time only
to say that Important as the x'ote of Connect
icut always has been , it is ten fold more im
portant this year. Uxvo can have every re
publican voter in Connecticut fully compre
hend and appreciate what the x'oto ot this
state nmy mean I shall rest content with the
result which your understanding xvill bring.
Trusting that the ides of November may
chronicle a victory in Connecticut , and as a
consequence ayietory to the nation , I return
your greeting xvith nil the cordiality with
which it has boon tendered. "
At Hartford there xvas gathered an enthu
siastic croxvd. Mayor Uoot Introduced the
traveling guest , who lespondcd as folloxvs.
"Less than a fortnight ago I xvas In acoun-
try xvhlcli , according to its area , is called
the richest in the world Old England.
A largo number of counties have
each a population greater than that of the
xvholo state of Connecticut , but I wish I
could compare the statistics of Connecticut
xvith any county or of any community of
ti 10,000 people in.England. The comparison
xvould give n sharp test by which the good
people of Connecticut could determine the
depressing effects of free trade upon the
mass of laboring men. You lire asked now
to change the tariff system upon xvhieh pros
perity has licen attained. Tlio country
wishes to hear your ansxver upon lh.it point ,
and awaits to hear It with confidence. "
At Springlleld the largest assemblage of
the day xvas in waiting. Among those xvho
boarded the train to greet Hlaino xvcre
Mayor , Maynard , ox Governor Robinson and
Klialm Morgan. Hlaino xvas Introduced , and
"Gentlemen , it xvould bo sheer vanity In
niO'to attribute the assembling of this vast
mass of Mnssachusets x-oters to a desire to
meet me. I take it rather as nn index of the
profound interest xvhieh you feel in the pend
ing contest. In that xvorthy and patriotic
purpose I am most heartily with you. I
share your feeling. I bid you Goa-
Bpcod. Of the national policies which
strikingly advanced your state among the
Htatcs In the union , the policy of protection
has been the chief. That policy is repre
sented in this contest by Harrison andJMor-
ton. You should roll up a majority for Harrison
risen and Morton of tens of thousands , and
beyond that , in every practicable and proper
xvay , you should help your neighbors in
At the conclusion of Hlalne's opecch three

The next stopping place xvns Worcester.
Hoforo the city itself xx'as reached there
were seen from the train throngs of work
men in the numerous lactories on cither side
of tbo railroad , xvho had assembled at the
factory windows waiting for Hlalno's train
Ic pass. When they saxv It they waved
their hands and cheered. When the depot
ut Worcester xx'as reached and Hlalno's Jig-
lire xvas recoj.'iii/ < jjl on the rear platform of
tbo train the cheering xx'asocifcrous. . lr.
Hurden of the republican state committee of
Massachusetts , performed the ceremony of
tottoductlon. Mr. Hlaino said :
"I have been umbanasscd the xx'holo day
bj such demonstrations as this. The croxvds
iinx'o not been BO large , but ox'oiywhere the
welcomes have been hearty. 1 repeat hero
what I said In Sprlngtlcld. 1 am not vain
enough to suppose that this vast assemblage
is simply a personal compliment to myself.
It is rather and far more largely nn exhibi
tion of the deep sympathy xvhieh the repub
licans In Massachusetts have in the pending
national contest. For Harrison and Morton
Massachusetts ! can do much in this contest ,
nnd much is expected of her. She can lead
ihu way In the contest xvhieh shall resloro
the republican party to national power and
insure the permanence of a sound prelection
i.o'icy lo the laborers of the United States.
Thanking you personally , gentlemen , for
tin1 Mndncss which the gathering of this
vnst multitude shoxvs toward myself , and
xvhleli 1 fully reciprocate , I bid you God
speed and farewell. "
The train inado but a shot t stop at South
Farmmglmm and reached Hoston on sched
ule time. Ho xvas driven 10 the Vendomo
hotel , where an immense croxvd soon gath
ered. About 9 o'clock Hl.imo appeared on
th li.ilcony of the hotel and addressed the
croxvd as folloxvs :
' 1 thank this great assembly for their
greeting of mo to Now Knglund. Hut for all
the absence ami feeling of cxllo that

Novwr since the republican party canio into

Nnw VOIIK , August 13 | Special Telegram
to TUB HEE. ] Everybody xvho has heard
Mr. Hlaino talk , cither publicly or privately ,
Mnco his return from Europe , is impressed
xvith the belief that ho has come back full of
light. The conscrvntix'o habit of speech
xvhieh ho assumed In the campaign in l Si , has
been laid aside , and ho talks like the Ulnino
of former years , apparently uttering the llrst
thought that occurs to him , and sending it
homo xvith all the force nt his command. Joe
Manley hluisclf notices this revix'nl of
HIaino's pugnacious and aggrcssix'o spiritand
is delighted to see it. As to this campaign ,
Mr. Ulalne is full of ono idea preservation
of tariff for protection nnd that Idea xvlll bo
expanded and enforced In every speech that
he will make.
Ho Is loaded to tbo guards xvith facts and
figures collected xvhilo abroad , as to the con
dition of xx'orkinginen of other countries and
can hardly restrain his Impatience to lay
them before an American audience. The ef
fect of the tariff on xvaco.s xvill bo the best of
all bis utterances. He is going to speak
wherever the national committee believes
that bis services are needed ; but , as at pros-
cnt'ndvised , ho is not likely to go further
went than Indiana and that for not soon.
Geneial Harrison sent his law partner , Mil-
ter , hero to Invlto him to Indianapolis at once
to open the campaign thcrc.but the invitation
xvas declined because the Maine people expect
Mr. Hlaino to start the ball rolling
here , as ho has done regularly every
car lor the last txx'enty odd. The Maine
'lection ' takes place on September 10 , and ho
as fully imido up his mind not to leave homo
ntil that Is over except to help his oxvu
late. Afterxx'ards ho xvill devote him-
elf to the doubtful xtates , and imrtleu-
arly to doubtful states In the east. The real
ivork , to his mind , lies In Nexv York , Nexv
Icrsey and Connecticut ; but if Harrison
ivants him ' .n Indiana ho xvill give that state
i whirl. The Pacific coast ho regards as safe
'or Iho solid remiblican electoral X'ote , and
> o far ho has shown no inclination to listen
o the urgent invitations ho rccolx'es from
hat part of the country.

WASHINGTON. 513 FOUIlTEENTItSTIIEBT D. C. , August , . f
In the senate to-day Scnalor Paddock reported -
ported from the commission on public
lands and a few moments later had passed
unanimously the house bill for the relief of
settlers upon the old Camp Sheridan military
reservation. The necessity for the bill arose
from errors of the Valentino land ofllco
xvhoso tract books upon opening Iho olllce
showed that tbo land within Iho limits of the
Fort Sheridan nnlita-y rcscrx-ation xx-as part
of the public domain and as such xx-as open to
entry under acts of congress providing for
the entry of public land , The register and
receiver alloxvcd a small number of entries
until they xvcro stopped by orders from Iho
general land ofllce. This bill is to legalise
ibo enlries erroneously nlloxvcd at that time.
It provides that all entries or tilings under
homestead or pre-emption laxvs allowed by
the land ofllces prior to receipt of instruc
tions from the general land ofllco dated July
2 , 1SM.1 , shall bo confirmed and that in cases
of lllings under the pre-emption laxv made
upon lands in the reservation the limit of
thirty months shall not bo enforced , but that
proof and payment must bo made within six
iionths from the passage of this act.
[ 'OK rtllUIIASBUS OF TUB OTOK KUbBKVATION.
Senator Paddock to-day introduced in tbo
icnato n bill of great Interest to the purchas
ers of the Otoo rcsci'X-ation. It directs the
.ccretary . of the interior to refund to each
purchaser of land in tbo late reservation In
.ho state of Nebraska and Kansas the
mount paid by them in excess of the np-
iiraiscd value as shown by the records in Ibo
cncral land ofllce , and direels that the
amounts of all rebates thus provided for
shall bo deducted from the principal of the
'und placed to the credit of the Indians in the
.reasury of the United States. The basis of
his bill is tbo excessive speculation xvhich
ho auction sulo of the Otoo reservation
juused in 1S3 ! , at xvhich time land amounting
n all to 42,000 acres , of xvhich 3-1,000 xvoro lo-
ated in Nebraska , xvas hold at public auc-
.lon. The appraised valuation of the land
ran from $3 lo $1'2 dollars an acre , but , oxving
o Iho heax-y bidding the prices secured by
the government ran from $0 to $10. The
method of public sale to the highest bidders ,
it is claimed , xvas not warranted by the act
authorizing the sale. There are precedents
for the position that the lirst locators xvho
xvero constructively actual settlers
xvero entitled to purchase the
land nt the appraised value. Since the Bale
it has been discovered that a very largo por-
lion of Iho land could not be sold lo-dny nor
could It bax'o been sold at any time since the
sale for one-half of the price paid lo Iho go\-
ernment through tbo speculative bidding at
the auction. The settlers some time Binco
formed an association for inx-estigating Iho
xx'iirrant of the general land oftloo in author
izing an auction sale of Iho land , nnd the bill
introduced by Senator Paddock is designed
to test Ihe action of Iho land department.
Several very prominent laxvycrs in Washing
ton believe tuat the land ofllco xvill bo ox-er-
QbnL TO THE COLO1IED MEN'S CONVENTION.
The sequel to Iho colored men's convention
at Indianapolis recently xvas gix-cn in the
house to-day , xvhen Phelan of Tennessee
called up the Cherokee Indian claim bill.
J. Milton Turner , xvho x\-as minister to Liberia
under President Arthur , and xvho engineered
the convention at Indianapolis. Is tlio attor
ney for Iho claimants in this bill and has a
very largo fee in it. Just before tbo
convention xvas held Turner told a xvcf.tern
member of congress within my hearing that
ho xvas a republican aim that ho xvas getting
big pay for running that conx-ention ; that ho
had secured the pnssago of the Cherokee bill
in the senate and the democrats in the house
xx-ore lo pass it lor running this convention.
Turner xvas in consullation with Chairman
Mills and other prominent democrats Just be
fore and Just after Phelan called up the bill
this afternoon. While the clerk xx'an reading
the measure Mr. Owen , a republican member
from Indiana , arose nnd said that ho xx-ould
object to Iho consideration of the measure ;
that he did not propose to sit in tbo house
and see a bill passed to pay the expenses of u
democratic convention held by colored men
In Indianapolis. The announcement acted as
tlio explosion of a bomb shell on the demo
cratic side of the hous6 anil a lot of the lead
ing members from that side Hocked around
the Indiana member and begged him to wlth-
draxv the objection , but ho xx-as obdurate and
the bill xx-as dcfealed. The democrats xx'ho
had promised to carry out their part of the
compact nro greatly disappointed over Ihe
failure of Iho bill. If Turner does not get
his money out of the measure ho will bo un
able lo continue his negotiations for a division
of Iho colored \-olc of the country.
LYMAN OUTS IN HIS XVOIIK.
Judge Lymnn of Council Bluffs , In
Iho house Ibis afternoon forced tbo
democrats to take up and pass the
bill for increasing the pensions for
utter deafness to $30 a month. When the
bill passed Chairman Matson of the commit
tee on invalid pensions , xvho is the demo
cratic candidate for governor of Indiana ,
held the floor and Iho republicans demanded
of him xvhilo ho had Iho opportunity to call
up the dependent , the arrearages and other
general pension bills and put them upon
their passage. Matson xvas in a very embar
rassing situation. Ho has been claiming lo
bo Iho soldier's friend and eager to sceuio
pension legislation. Ho is conducting his
campaign on the pension issue but bo refused
this aftcinoon to embrace an oppor
tunity and ho is noxv recorded with his
party iu opppsitlon to general pension leg
islation. Judge Lyman nnd other
republicans say they xvlll object to giving
consideration to measures the democrats
xx-ant lu call up by unanimous consent until
some general pension bills are passed.

She Did A Tale Unfold.
Dr.s MOINHS , August 13. [ Special to TUB
Hni : . ] A largo part of the population of
loxva can be found these days in the numer
ous attractive resorts in the vicinity of
Spirit aiid Okobojl lakes. loxx-a people are
just beginning to find out what attractions
are prescntC'1 v > U'nin their own statothough
pleasure seekers from Omaha , St. Louis and
other cities hax'o for some time been making
their annual pilgrimages to these beautiful
loxva lakes. Spirit lake draws moro largely
from the fash ionablo class from the cities ,
Omaha , DCS Moines and Cedar Uaplds es
pecially being represented most of the sea
son by good delegations xvho enjoy the lake
sports by day and the dances , parties and
other social diversions by night. Okoboji is
more attractix-o to the pcoplo xvho don't care
for society at this tune nnd prefer to llsh
and row and rough it after a fash
ion , living as near as possible
to nature's heart during their moro
or less brief outing. All visitors at Okobojl
bax'o pointed out to them a lady xvith a
very interesting history , xvho spends her
summers there. It is Mrs. Abby Gardiner ,
the solo survivor of the Spirit lake massacre
in 1657. She xx-as then a young girl living at
home , on the shore of West Okoboji lake. A
band or Sioux , led by Chief Impeduka , had
been committing many depredations further
north , but the settlers in the little colony at
Spirit lake and Okobojl lake did not appre
hend much danger. Suddenly , without n
xx-ord of.tx-arning , this band of red devils
sxx'ooped doxvn on the handful of families at
Spirit lake , killing them all , and then pro
ceeding doxvn to Okoboji , continued the mur
derous xx-ork. Mrs. Gardiner , then a girl
about txvelx'o years old , xx-as spared , though
all her family xvas killed before
her eyes. A xvifo of ono of tbo settlers
xvas also spared and taken
away by the Indians. Hut attor , enduring
the fiendish treatment of captivity for u
time , the xx-oman died , and the girl nlono
survived. After being in captivity several
xvceks she xvas released , Iho government
paying a ransom for her. She noxv lix'cs to
toll the story of that frightful massacre , in
xvhich over a score of lives xvere lost and
she alone surx'ix'ed. The log house in xvhich
her family xx'cro scalped nnd slain is also
standing and is one of the objects of interest
to every trax-cler. A visitor to these resorts
noxx' , standing in the midst of tbo throngs on
the grand verandas , where beauty and
fashion meet , can hardly realize that within
the memory of some now living there , the
Indians roamed in almost undisputed pos
session of the spot , nnd perpetrated one of
the bloodiest of Indian massacres.
