Dr. Boston, on taking the chair, re turned tliajiks for the honor conferred upon him, and lu a speech of some length delivered an eloquent eulogy upon the soldiers of the late war, both 'North and South. After an anthom by a double quartette the orator of the day. General Wade Hampton, was introduced and spoke as follows: GDN. HAMPTON’S SPEECH. General Hampton spoke as follows: ‘‘The scene presented heiv today Is one that could not be witnessed in any country but our own, and for this rea son, *lf for no Uther, it poHsebses a sig nificance worthy’of the gravest con* •sMentllou. A fe*v year a ago brave m«*u from the North and South stood facing each other In hostile array and th.* ihOAt <bbmd of the counthy w«o •poured ou>t like water on many a bat tlefield. Thousands, hundreds of thou sands, of our bravest sleep in Woody graves; men who gave their lives to prove the faith of their convlcrtlous; and now, North and South, standtnK by th<*e graves wherever they may be, grasp handa across the bloody ohartm and proudly claim Federal and Con federate soldiers as Anuvicauw, men who gave to the avorhl ax no ble examples of courage and devotion to duty as can be enrolled on the page of hbttory. Nor is Uhls a»l that marks this occasion as exceptional and re markable, and which would render it memorable in our annals for all tint.* to come. No monument in the world has such an honorable history s* ■tachea to yonder one. That marks the graves of no victorious soldiers, but of The followers of a lost cause; it stands not on Southern soil but on Northern; m n who rest under Its shadow come from our far-off southland; and it owes Itw ^reotloti not to die comrades of these dead soldiers, but mainly to tho generosity and magnanimity of their former foes, the cltlzenc* of this Rival city. All honor, then, to the brave and liberal men of Chicago who have eh own by th«dr action that they regard the -war as over, and that they can welcom? as friends, on this solemn and au8pioious occasion, their former ene- rote*. As long as this lofty column points to heaven, as long as oue stone of its foundation remains, future gen erations of Americans should look up on It with pride, not only a» an honor to tho.*o wbo conordved it* coikstnie- tk>n, but as a silent though ndhle em blem of ^a restored union and a reuni ted people-.

Some of our Northern fellow citizens seems to par.'phruse the RIMloal quest ton, "Can anything good come ma of Naza reth?" applying It to the lAnrrh, out. my friends, wo realize wo arc not all evil. Put yourselves 4u our places and fudge us from that standpoint. I:; the conven tion which formed the constitution, mere were two parties which held opposite positions, one u*^ng the fo-ma tlon of a strong rcvrt-ral government, and rhe other advocating the doctrine of state rights. It was attempted to reconcile these ao, tagorrtstlc views by a compromtee by which It was declared that nil powers not del (gated 'to the general government were annexed to the states, but like all compromises. It left this vital question unsettled, and from 17OT until 1861, the proffer construction to be placed on the clause of the constitution just reter-reo to, has led to constant end often angry discussion. This unfortunate condition of ntfatrs was further compncaied by me Injection of the question of slavery Into tt. and wo all know what has been tmo result of these unhappy dffTwvuces. These are now all dead Issues, nod I <tu not propose to discuss them. It was a vrtso phnasogvber who sold to a general commwndlns an army: ”1 do pot choose to argue with a commander o: ten leatons." and wher. questions are submitted to the arbitrament of the swtn-,1 the decision 1s generally In favor ot the ten Jeetons. The vexed question* which have disttwhed the country slice Bin foundation of «he governriSant are settled, nnd reference to them la maoe to show onlv how natural the course of the South was, educated as the people there were in the school of strict state rights. Every Southern man relt that a call made upon him by his state was an Imperative command, and that bla duty was to obey without hesitation- and at all hazards. When the North called on Its citizens to rally to the old flag, they responded to tho summon* of duty an dM the people of the South to .the call made on thorn.

Record ot the AVork Given at the Cleveland Meeting. Cleveland, O., May 29.—The Inception and growth of the National Municipal League was reviewed In g paper on “The Progress, of Municipal Reform.” hy Natlonul Secretary Woodruff, wllo recalled the first national conference for good government In Philadelphia In January, 1694, and the second held In 'Minneapolis In December last, the National League having been mean while organized, Alay, 1894, In New York, with fifteen attillated aaaocla tlons. When the league was organized a year ago there was between forty and fifty municipal reform organiza tions distributed among fourteen states; now there are 130 ou the lists of the league, covering In all thirty-one Slates. The statistics of the distribu tion and Increase In numbers allow that the greatest progress has been In the middle stistea. especially In New York and New Jersey, owing to the local causes there the last year, which has stimulated Interest In the work. The leagu's oorr apondoilce from every state and territory bears testi mony to file necessity of Immediate stops to establish higher standards of efildlency of administration and char acter requirements for officials. It la an encouraging sign of tlto times that an Increasing portion of tile people, realizing the gravity of the situation and the Importance of re deeming our cities, are forming asso ciations to combat the evils of nlpathy and Indifference, seeking to neutralise their nail effects by Inculcating A deeper sense of personal responsibility on the pant of eaeh Individual citizen. Alay the national league prove equal to the lask of forming and guiding this awakening spirit ot civic patriot ism. to the end that there may lie n Hpeedy and permanent solution of the xreat pmihlum of municipal gOVWJ!" ment. 'Mr. Woodruff then Rave nn Interest* Ihr: resume of the work In the ffreat cities and tlhe vfttorles insf fall for Kood government In New York, Brook lyn, Philadelphia, Chicago and else where, with jiti acknowledgment Hint result nt the February election In Phil adelphia was not successful, owing to the Injection of national Issues In the mayoralty contest. The cTef:illH of Hie league’s work 1n Us efforts to co-ordi nate all the forces making for civic righteousness and to bring Into closer nnd more harmonious relations all workers in behalf of better municipal government. Including facts concerning the vast amount of literature, compris ing over 400.000 pages of printed mat ter which have been dlstrlbuteed, Was cntertalnlgly set forth. No amount of munlchml reform pro gress would be complete without a ref erence to the Increasing activity nnd co-operation of women. They are rap idly coming to the front In organiza tions like health-protective associa tions, clubs, nnd in such bod'.es as tho Civic FederaUon of Chicago, composed of both men and women. There are few communities (Colorado being m exception) ‘where womei* have the right of suffrage hence their activity | is limited to educational and agtfetory efforts, and to looking after the detnlkt of municipal* housekeeping. Whenever their efforts have been properly and persistently directed In these channels substantial results have been accom plished. Without In this connection undertnk lng to classify the long lief of reform bodies according to their form and methods, we find that all of them In sist upon what wo may Justly term t*li» condition precedent to trpe and permanent reform, the separation of state and national politics from mu nicipal affairs nnd tho elimination of patfibanahlp from municipal business The eradication of the spolte system anfl the substitution of merit for fa vorltLsm is llkowls • deemed ossentrial Back of all the diversity of forms, sec a sturdy, nwlut^determination to remove tho stigma thtft Is resting upon American municipalItlefL spirit of 1776 and i860 manifesting It self in a now way. Tile present aqua tion may not be vo dramatic as that of 1776 and I860, but It la equally por teotlous to the future welfare and maintenance of our republican state. FIFTY THOUSAND [ill n Ill MAN.

Reeent|!y a conference was (heki between Secretary Morton and otatls- '41 Ian Itohltison of the rie|)ark.nent of uigrlculture and tt committee ap- isflnt: >1 by |Mse ivddnus icommerctlajl bodies of the country with a view of reforming the crop reporting system and re-orgamxing the force of crop r. i.n't.-iv, 'the new system determined upon bi the outcome of that confer- en<e. The now plan 4a to have a correspon dent tn each township of e u-h suite Instead of as under the present plan of four reporter* In each county- There will be a, nenlargoment of the present .working force nnd It ts ex pected by Air. Robinson that the de partment will haw 50,000 township comHpondentM in the field. The old plan wa* <o have three of the report ers In each county turn In their mat ter to thle fourth who Is designated «* "chief correspondent” and he aver- i their ivports, and communicates to the department. Under the new Hcheme each of tho tawnrihlp ccrre- i|!»ndenl( tail! communliufte lo the depn-rtment of agriculture direct. Be- eau*e of the additional reports, these r,iports will entail u|>on the office a large Increase In clerical fore.* of the department. The great difficulty of the depart- tnent 1s experiencing Is In getifn'r township reporter* as they are not to receive ipiy. A circular has been pre pared and sent to county clerks throughout the country asking (hem to name two men !r. each township one of itvhom will be selectel to serve s* rporter. It will take some time, the officials *a>w. to make these appoint’ mems, but thle work Una, far, has pro gressed favorably. V10TI.M8 OF THK TROLLEY. Menwrlsl Serrlcm In Their Honor New Yorlf.

Atlanta, May 30.—(9pecal.))—"I nee,” Ki1d a gentleman of weighty Influence In Mate polities, who has Just returned from a Wlp north and cast, to tho Telegraph cofln«g>ondcnt tom IT, "that Governor Atkliuon gave an interview In N«wi York tho other day In which ho retd there was no chance for a southern man to be pl.t cel ut the head of the Democratic national ticket for the next light because tho Demodinlta of tho north would not ac cept a southern finely and, because, secondly, the old soutltom statesmen are mostly disqualified because they served In the Confcderj to army. Then I believe the governor *V,r ho didn't think it would bo advi»a.ble to consider i southern nun for tho head of tho t southerner at the tail end of the ticket either. 'Tii is ivicivnce io a loulkerii uian In the nett Democratic presidential ticket renvtnJ* me that I find In th'e coat that there Is much more fota- Mllty ot tho Rcpubllcann putting a southern man on their ticket than there la for a Democrat to get such I place. There ls a good deal of quiet talk of this kind In the cant among the tar seeing Republicans, and at a second glance there Is wisdom In the propovJtitk-n. "For Inslunce, it Is pretty well con ceded that the it opu Oil cults have th"lr parly at the north under complete discipline- They could hold them In line without any trouble nnl not have their patriotism lueztlonul If l!n>y were to come south for their second man, for you Ittio-v to bi a Republican north Is to be above the suspicion of dbdoyulty or anything of that »iut, though there are plenty of northern DemorcraU! who would st ind cut till the seas part before you could maks them *wil’->v u southerner on the pr.vldentiul ticket. r "Rut the ItnjuUlio** ' ar-‘ 'iMklng e vb a li""» T v-ouid be DUslnraw for -m to Ioik routhivnrd pjllllcally. They think they could not only hold nil the negro vote they have n'.tvan hud here but could also attract l.irge.y from the pcqioc',Htl3 party by recog nising the sou'll. Inducing people here who b v'i ">w»e i tiie RepuD'ican ideas of protection but would never vole ■wth that party on account of old time memorijA and prejudice except by bridging the chasm with a *outh orn m»n on the national ticket. I have heard a good deal on this fine In the east during iny tr.n ami you may look to see the tmithcm man on the Republican ticket hefor■ the north- ern Democris will borio to faintly conxlder euoh a proposition " OLAUSIJN WAS WRI.YTHY. * Olontgwmcry's Pitcher AVosild Not Play Under Umpire NlcJiols.
