A presidential saint boomed forth from the guns ot the Rich tnoiul and a scarlet-coated band playc < "Hall Columbia. " The Richmond Light In fantry , In dazzling uniforms of blue and sll vcr , kept back the crowds with their bayo nets. Aligned along the adjoining streets wcr various organizations , conspicuous nmom them the confederate veterans with battl flags fluttering over them. The procession was cheered by thousand : of countrymen as It wended Its way througl the little town from the station to the greet neil , topped with wooden stands , hidden It patriotic bunting , whcro the Sons am Daughter * of the Revolution and dis tinguished guests were assembled. Ono fen- turn of the procession was the ladles or who led the way. Then came the gram' marshal , Adjutant General Chariot Ander son ot Richmond , and his staff , followed by William J. Crawford , the architect of the monument. Then followed President Cleve land , Vlco President Stevenson and members of the cabinet In carriages , followed by the governor and stuff nnir military organiza tions and secret societies , conspicuous among them being the members of the Fredericksburg - burg and Alexandria lodges of Masons , In I which Washington had taken his degrees. The program for the dedicatory exercises Included addresses of welcomeby Mayor A. 1 P. Rowe nnd Governor Ch.irlcs O'Ferrall , Masonic ceremonies , and address by Lawrence - renco Washington , a descendant ot Mary Washington , and an oration by Senator John W. Daniel , the orator of the day , SENATOR DANIEL'S ORATIOX. Senator Daniel said ; "General Washing ton was the noblest figure that ever stood In the forefront of a nation's life. We are gathered today around his mother's grave. " 'All that I am,1 said he , 'I owe to my mother. ' "All that we are as a nation we owe to him. him."His "His debt Is ours. It Is many times multiplied. It Is ever growing as the ever growing republic Illustrates In Its virtues and In Its faults allko the merit of his ex ample and the wisdom of his teachings. "Beholding the monument we rejoice that the debt Is acknowledged and realize that no limitation of time can bar rendition of Justice to a noble fame. Our gratitude goes forth to our country women who have so worthily achieved this work. Men at tempted it and left It half accomplished. The state and the federal governments alike contemplated , discussed and then postponed It. Our noble women undertook It , and It Is done. We thank you , madam , you Mrs. President and your companions of the Mary Washington association. Your success Is your reward 'and you will be henceforth blended In our generation with her whose name Is carved on this sacred stone. It was fitting. Indeed , that your pious hands should rear the first monument on earth erected by women to a woman ; It Is fitting , too , that It should bear the name of Mary the mother of Washington. "There are 10,000 Mary Washlngtons among the mothers of the revolution and honoring' her we honor the motherhood of heroic days and heroic men. It was In Ills character , all sufllclent In every emer gency , that was displayed the overtowcr- Ing greatness of George Washington , and It Is not doubted that this character was toned down and shaped by his mother's head. The principles which he applied tea a nation were those simple nnd elementary truths which she first Imprinted upon his mind In the discipline of home. " Senator Daniel reviewed eloquently the facts ot history concerning the mother of Washington and discussed the spirit of the times In which George Washington was reared. OBELISK OF WHITE MARBLE. The monument Is a beautiful qbollsk of plain white marble , fifty feet high and elevqn fee ( , square at the base , bearing an Inscrip tion In embossed letters , simply : "Mary , the Mother of Washington. " It was executed in Buffalo , N. Y. , and was set In position on December 23 , last. The whole fabric cost. $11,000 , raised entirely by the ladles of the National Mary Washington Memorial associ ation , and the monument IH In Itself credItable - Itablo alike to the distinguished woman whom It commemorates and to the patriotic American women who havo-honored them selves by thus honoring her. The association was formed only three years ago , with Mrs. Amelia C. Walto , widow of the late chief Justice , at Its head , and Mrs. Margaret Hctzel ot Clifton Station , Va. , as secretary ; and It may bo a subject of gratification with Its members , and , Indeed , with all Ameri cans that the heroine mother ot our first president , should at length , 101 years after her death , have a suitable token of respect raised above her unheeded grave , since the lack of such a fitting memorial has until now been a standing reproach to the whole nation. Projects were agitated soon after Mrs. Washington's death to mark her burial place by a stone to bo paid for by the gov ernment , but In the confusion attendant upon the organization of the new nation they were successively forgotten , revived and forgotten again. H6wevcr remarkable the lack of Informa tion elsewhere respecting Mary Ball , wife of Augustine Washington and .mother of acorgo Washington , overylwdy In FrederIcksburg - Icksburg knows all about her , and glories In her history. They know the year and place ot her birth the year of grace 1706 and the place at Epplng forest , down the R.ipa- Imnnock , In Lancaster county , Virginia , which nearly two centuries ago was the plantation homo of her father , Colonel Joseph Hall , tion.of Colonel William Uall , a loyalist Englishman of good llncago who emigrated to America away back In 1057. They know that ns Mary Ball grow toward womanhood she was known throughout that region as the "Rosa ot EppltiK Forest" and the "Hollo of the Northern Neck , " and that as a grown maiden she was sensible , modest and lov ing , with hair llko flax , cheeks llko peach blossoms and eyes of cloudless blue. The tradition In current among them , too , ex planatory of the fact that she married her husband In England , that having been taken there by her brother Joseph after the death of her widowed mother , she resided with relatives In the vtllugo ot Cooklmm , In Berk shire , when a gentleman's traveling chariot was upset In front of the house und the gen tleman himself brought In seriously Injured and was nursed to recovery by her. Ho proved to be a fellow Virginian and neigh bor Colonel Augustine Washington of West moreland county , Virginia a gentleman of historic IlrltUh stock , tracing his uncestry back six centuries In England.

PRESIDENT CLEVELAND'S TRIBUTE. President Cluvttand responded to Governor O'Ferrnll. The president said : "Govcrnoi O'Ferrall , Mayor and Fellow Citizens : 1 upoak for those who are todny greeted as UK official RUCfttB of Virginia and Frederlcksburf when I return sincere thanks for the heart ] welcome that hao been extended to tin on be half of both the utato and city. Our appro elation ot the warmth of your reception li not diminished by the thought that In tlu light ot the highest meaning belonging tc this occasion there arc no guests here. We have anxemblcd on equal terms to worslilj at a pacrcd national shrine. Nothing car bo more Important to those who have as- Binned the responsibility of sclf-govcrnmcnl than the cultivation and stimulation amour themselves of sentiments which ennoble and clcvato and strengthen humanity. As a cleat nnd wholesome stream must have Its flow from a pure fountain head , so must a clear and beneficent popular government have It ! source In pure and morally healthy men , This purltv and this moral health are In nothing better exemplified than In a love and rovorftice for motherhood , The man whc paid ho cared not who made a people's lawe If ho could write their songs might have said with more truth that he could gauge the strength nnd vigor of a people and their fit ness for self-government If ho knew the depth and steadfastness ot their love for their mothers. "I believe that he who thinks It brave and manly to outgrow his care and devotion for lila mother Is. more than he who hai no music In himself , fit for treason , stratcgcms nnd spoils and should not bo trusted. Lst us recall today as conclusive proof of the close relation between American greatness nnd a lasting love and reverence for our mothers the proud declaration of George Washington , 'All I am I owe to my mother , ' and let us not forget that when his glory was greatest and when the plaudits of his countrymen were loudest ho valued more than these the- blessing nnd approval of his aged mother. "While- these exercises cannot fall to In spire us anew with reverence for American motherhood , wo will remember that we are here to do honor to the woman who gave to our nation Its greatest nnd best citizen and that wo have the privilege of participating In ( ho dedication of a monument erected by the women of our land In loving nnd endur ing testimony to the virtues of the mother of Washington. Lot us bo proud today that the nobility of this woman exacted from a distinguished foreigner thfr admission 'If micli are the matrons of America , she may well boast of Illustrious sons , ' nnd tha Lafayette , who had fought with her son for American Independence , declared after he had received her blessing , 'I have seen the only Roman matron living at this day. ' "Remembering these tilings , let ns leave this place with our love of country strength ened , with a higher estimate ot the value o citizenship and with a prayer to God thai our people may hold fast to the sentiment that grows out of a love und reverence for American motherhood.

In pursunnco of i notice to .Mr. T. J. Morrison , a member o tlio New York bar , tlml the house commltte on 1'acino railroads would hear a. prosentn tlan of the views ho represents rcganllni the Union Pacific railroad , that gentlcinai hna sent to the committee a lengthy com munlcatlon embodying his views mid en closing the draft for an net entitled : " / bill to provide for the payment of tin United States G per cent bonds Issued It aid of the Union 1'aclflc and Kansas 1'nclfli railroads with the proceeds of the govern incut mortgages placed on the railroads foi that purpose. " Ho says the relations between the Unltci States and the Union Pacific railroad an treated In the bill from a purely business standpoint. His proposition scorns to be r reply to the plans of the attorney genera ! and the reorganization committee , and np- pear to be the first suggestion In favor ol sustaining' the full claim of the government , It being understood that Mr. Morrison's clients are willing to purchase the govern ment mortgages. He says the bill proposes the government shall realize from Its property rights. In the railroad the funds necessary for the payment of the United States 6 per cent subsidy bonds , with Inter est , to accomplish which It authorizes the secretary of the treasury to assign the gov ernment mortgages for cash. The bill , In order to facilitate the acquiring of the gov ernment mortgages by the bond and stock holders of the Union Pacific Railway com pany , who will naturally desire to acquire them and avoid the foreclosure features of the bill , enables the company to .Issue Its bonds to be secured by an assignment of the government mortgages to the trustees , the company's bond anil stockholders to have the first privilege of subscribing to the company's bonds , the total amount receiva ble being the total amount of the net lia bility of the company , being the principal and Interest of the aid bonds , less the sinking fund. THINKS HIS PLAN WOULD PAY OUT. Mr. Morrison argues that the property af fords to their security holders a desirable Investment , as at 2 per cent on $85,000,000 only $1,700,000 would bo required for Interest , which Is less than one-half the minimum earnings , the bala.ico would then be appli cable to the payment of Interest of their own present securities , or the holders of the bonds could pay themselves 4 per cent on the Bainc amount of new bonds , out of the net earnings of the government divisions. In addition they could give themselves a new general mortgage on ther "system" of branch lines , and other property which they now offer to the government ; or If they did not choose to take up the first mortgages with their own subscriptions they could re new them at ti per cent , or as a prior lien with a long-time bond , the government would at once accept Its claim paid over and thus sever all connections with the com pany. The company would thereafter enjoy full latitude In financiering , as In Its gen eral corporate affairs. The transfer of the government mortgage upon full payment Is the primary purpose of the bill. In aid thereof and In addition thereto It provides tor a foreclosure proceedings , In the Interest : ) f any one who may become the owner of the Kovernmcnt liens. In case the bond and btockholdcrs of the Union Pacific Hallway company do not avail themselves of the favorable terms provided for redemption In this bill , and the government thereupon fore- : loscs , the Importance of the Judicial fa cilities herein provided Is much accentuate' ! .
