of the Legislature of Pennsylvania slept at
the Bingham House, Philadelphia, Sunday

than a quorum sat down to breakfast at the
same hotel at 6 o'clock,and then hastened to
the Broad street station.
At 6:40 a. m., when the train left the
depot?there were fully 300 people on board
legislators, legislative officers and em
ployes, and gentlemen from the depart
ments. It was a merry party and the three
lours and a half spent in crossing the
State' of Jersey passed rapidly. Senator
Delamater wasn't "with the party, but
Senators Cooper and Keyburn-were. Sen
ator George Handy Smith beamed on every
.body, and the irrepressible Bepresentative
Fow passed through the train frequently to
l.eep the merry jest in circulation.. Senators
Steele and TJpperman, of Allegheny, were
present, and the Alleghenv Bepresentatives
with the party were: Messrs. Marland,
Bichards, "Weaver, Chalfant, McCullongh,
Nesbit, Stewart and Lafierty.
A FESTIVE PARTY.
The first appearance of Centennial fes
tivity was at Elizabeth, N. J.,when the
town was en fete in honor of President Har
rison, who, on his way to New York, was
being entertained at breakfast by Governor
Green. Governor and Mrs; Beaver were
also gnests at the breakfast. The legislative
train arrived at Jersey City soon after 9
o'clock, and as soon as the distinguished

to the substantial! common to all seasons,

fresh sea breeze, did ample justice to it.
The parade is) so fully detailed elsewhere
that it is useless to describe it here, as seen
and enjoyed by the statesmen.
The magnificent display of war ships,
their yardsT manned in honor of the ap
proach of rthe President, the big guns firing

had ever seen. Fully as new to them was
the panorama of the mercantile shipping.
After pinner, the members scattered to va

livened by the music of the Metropolitan
Baaid, from Philadelphia.

The Mlwaorl Legislature raises a Bill
Against Grain Gambling The Eu

tSTECTAt, TXLXO&AK TO TOE DISPATCH.!
St. Louis, April 29. The passage ot the
"grain, gambling bill" by the Legislature
Saturday, has created a panic among the
grain and commission men of the State.
The members of tbe Merchant's Exchange
are in favor of closing up that institution if
the Governor signs the bill and opening up
a Board of Trade In East St Louis. A
prominent miller said if the law was na
tional and all the cities stopped option deal
ing St Louis would hold her own, but if
they all continued it and St Louis stopped
it, the trade of this city would move at once
The bill prohibits the sales of grain,
stocks or bonds when the seller does not
actually have the full amount ot the article
sold in his possession or under his control,
or where the buyer did not "intend actually
to receive what he bougbt; it prohibits any
corporation or person to permit such sales
to be made at any place under its or his con
trol and forbidding the settling of differ
ences. The law is meant as a death blow to
Mr. Charles A. Cox, President of the
Merchants' Exchange, said: "My objection
to the law is that it is too sweeping. There
is such a thing as legitimately selling grain
for future delivery and there is such a thing
as grain gambling. This law is as severe on
the legitimate business as it is on the
Jake Ewalk said: "I believe the option
trade is the foundation and impetus to the
legitimate grain trade in this country. The
city that cannot engage in it can have no
large receiving or shipping trade. The
country shipper fills his warehouses and
sells against his purchase, aud if themarket
declines so he has a good profit he settles his
sales and holds his grain in his warehouse
for another rise in the market This is his
means of profit as well as his guard against
loss in his business. If he could not do his
business inSt Louis in this way he would
go to Chicago or some other market, and
those markets will have the advantage of
These opinions are held by the majority of
the grain men.

The Grand Trunk Railway workmen in
shifting the remains of the wreck late this
afternoon, in order to give tbe coroner's iury a
distinct idea of the lay-out of the tracks at the
scene of yesterday's terrible accident, dis
covered what was without doubt the cause of
the disaster. One of tbo axles of the
engine was found to he broken.
THE TELL-TALE AXLE.
The axle bad, after the accident, been pitched
into the mad and water, and bad also been
somewhat burned, so that it was Impossible to
tell by examining tbe broken ends whether the
axle had had a flaw in the steel, but from the
position in which the engine lay after the
plunge into the water tank it Is certain that
the axle was not broken by being struck by
anything, either at the time of or Immediately
after the first crash. Tbe tender of the engine
was thrown to one side, and it was that which
got the f nil weight of tne ten cars behind and
caused them to pitch into a heap.
The jury seemed to be of the opinion that the
broken axle caused the accident, bnt in order to
get some more light upon the subject V. A.
Robinson, an expert in iron and steel working,
as in locomotive engineering, was appointed to
make an inspection. In order that be might

was adjourned until Wednesday night next.

Chief Clerk Wallace swore that tbe reports
showed tbe train to have been ten minutes late
atDundas, so that instead of trying to gain
time, tbe train bad really lost a little. The
wheels were examined at Paris, 23 miles from
tbe scene of the disaster. Since the terrible
accidedt at St. George, 15 miles from the place
where Sunday's horror occurred, trainmen had
imperative orders not to try to make up lost
time by fast running.
THE COBOKEB'S OPINION.
Coroner Woolveston inspected tbe charred
remains very closely. He says be is sure there
are not tbe remains of 18 persons among them.
He thinks 15 would be the right number, 17 at
the outside, which will make at the most 19
deaths from the accident. Most of these were
killed instantly and their remains were burned
afterward, but some, it is certain, suffered in
tense agonies, being slowly burned to death
while hemmed in by portions of the wreck.

A Lecture That Wind Up With a .Moral on
The congregation of Calvary Episcopal
Church, Hast End, spent a very pleasant
evening last night listening to a lecture on
Scotland, delivered by Rev. L. S. Osborne, of
Chicago, the proceeds going to parish charities.
He was introduced by Rev. George Hodges,
well known to Dispatch readers, and in a
Beginning with Ireland, Mr. Osborne advised
all travelers in Scotland to do the Green Isle
first, as he did, the contrast between tbe na
tional characteristics being refreshing. From
the perpetual grin which contact with Irish
character provokes, where even rioting is tem
pered by wit and joke, you go over to Coven
anter Scotland with greater zest. Tbe bever
age that makes an Irishman funny renders the
Scot more dignified. Starting in Glasgow,
which, the lecturer said, though in Scotland,
was not of it, being as bnstling as Chicabo, be
led his auditors through the Land o' Cakes
The lecture -was interspersed with humor,
Sathos and snatches of descriptive verse. Mr.
isborne was not inclined to judge the Scotch
harshly on their repntation for love of tbe enp,
holding that much allbwance must be
made for the difference in tempera
ment between them and more high
strung and nervous people. The relig
ions sentiment of tbe country preserves the
Scot from tbe excesses of his volatile critics.
A gentle slap was administered to the intern
nerate "temperance" people of this conntrv.
The Scot, prudent in bis appetite, demands
pure liquor, ana tne iaea was neia out mat an
attempt to reach reforms that could be at
tained might be more potent for good in this
country than wholesale and intemperate de
nunciation. , t

Four Men Thrown From a Boat Into the
Iobtland, Obe., April 29. News has
just been received of the drowning of four
men at the Cascades on the Columbia river
last evening at 6 o'clock. The names
of the victims were Peter Hanson,
IPeter .Boomer, John Larson and Lawrence
Maelstrom. These men were alPemployed
at the locks and the canal on Government
Work. They took the Whitehall boat and
started across the Columbia, a short dis
tance above the great rapids. The river
was rising and the. current much stronger
than supposed. The boat was caught in the
whirl, and despite all efforts was swept over
the rapids. ,
"When about half way down the boat
struck on the rocks, was thrown 20 feet iu
the air and the occupants were pitched into
the roaring, angry waters'. Three of the
men never rose to the surface again. The
fourth man clung to tbe boat for some
distance, but finally perished. None of the
bodies have yet been recovered. The terri
ble accident was witnessed by many persons
on the shore, who were powerless to render
the slightest assistance to the hopeless

Slnrred by One IAitlo Mistake.
There were nearly 1.000 persons on foot. Ths
procession was marred by an untoward occur
ence at Nassau and Wall streets, just past thi
spot where Washington took the oath of office,
There the police, apparently supposing that thi
men on foot were part of the multitude, let the
rest of the multitude at that point, with the
effect of creating astounding confusion and
annoyance. This was ennanced by the balking
of the horses ahead of one of the carriages.
From the eminence on which stands Trinit'
Church, Wall street was seen to be jammed
with men, though all that could be seen of then
was a surging sea of black hats.
Order was restored when Broadway was
reached, and there a pretty scene was ar
ranged. The regulars had gone in tbe crept
building, and so bad the men of the Loyal
Legion and the Grand Army. They were ar
ranged along the sides of the arcade and ion
tbe marble stairway. Tbe Seventh's veteraas
stood along and across Broadway, facing east
and south and west. Tbe Sons of the Revolu
tion stood at the doorway. The David's Island
band played "Old Hundred," then it was
played by Gilmore's band, and then by Cappa's
band, while high above all this mnsio rang out
the same tune, sounded by the chimes of Old
President Harrison's Reception.
The President, rovemor H11L Vice Presl
dent Morton, and Hamilton Fish, standing on a -raised
dais In the parlors of tbe Lawyer's
Clnb, amid surroundings than which there are
none more luxurious in America, reviewed tbe
invited guests who were practically those per
sonages wbo bad formed the escort from the
foot of Wall street.
This reception lasted three-quarters of an
hour, and then was arbitrarily stopped to en
able tbe President to refresh himself at lunch
eon. The people continued to press intoeee
him for an hour, but were disappointed. The
table to which be sat down is in a private
salon, and was Set with what were in all
probability the most opulent appointments
ever seen in this country. The table decora
tions are said to have cost $1,500. In a sentence,
tbe table was banked with roses, amid which
electric lights in pink silk coverings shone like
fairy lights: a great centnry plant hung with
these lamps and with orchids, rose above the
center of the table, and flowers lighted In this
novel way were lavishly -heaped on the table.
In other rooms all the guests were generously
and royally refreshed.
No Discount on the Crowds.
In tbe meantime, the crowds in Broadway
were sucb as to pack tbe street. The roofs
were fringed with spectators as indeed they
had been in Wall street. Tbe beautiful horses
of the mounted police which had been so much
admired now proved a menace to the comfort
and even the limbs of tbe people, for the
mounted squad, instead of standing ahead of
tbe foot police, took places next to tbe front
of the solid wall of men and women across
Broadway. The horses grew restive, some were
excited by tbe band music These reared and
plunged and kicked always against tbe people
behind them. Tbe terror of the women and
their screams as tbe hoofs ot the animals beat
against the human line were pitiful to see and
A MONSTER NATAL PAEADE.
TrrentyBIHes of Teasels, 1,200 In Number,
of All Varieties.
But all this even the $4,600 ornaments at
one man's table were trifles compared with
the naval parade then going on and to con
tinue long after. When "the President dis
embarked the mass of steamboats that had
followed him and blocked the channel off
the Battery proceeded up tbe East river to.
Hunter's Point. There they turned, came
down the East river, and, rounding tho Battery,
steamed up tbe Hndson to Fiftieth street, past
the warships, the cutters and the boarding
tugs, then anchored there.
In the meantime the rest of the ten original
squadrons forming a procession 14 miles long,
had followed and was covering the same route.
But at this time there bad been so many un
listed additions to the fleet, in the shape of
steamers from tbe lower Day and Kill von Kull
that when tbe first great squadron that bad
clung to the President's boat bad gone up tbe
North river there was no apparent lessening of
tbe unparalleled mass ot boats in the upper
The projected parade of 7Qt vessels, 14 miles
in length, bad swelled to l.lOO or 1,200 vessels,
reaching as far as Sandy Hook as far as Rail
way. At one time both rivers and tbe bay were
filled with steamers, each carrying above it a
clond of steam to throw its thin shadow on the
now gloriously-lighted water under a sun like
that which shone on Washington himself.
First in public interest came the greatpassen
ger boats, beaded by tbe Mary Powell, Queen
of the Hudson and Pet of Vassar College,
These included such vessels as the Cape
Charles, the Iron Steamboat Company's fleet,
the City of Kingston, tbe Thomas t
Brennan, tbe Kaaterskill, City ot Spring
field and steamers of that class
second only to tbe monarchs that ride the
Sound. Then came the little flyers like the
Shady Side, Morrlsanla, Rosedale and Idle
wild, the reindeers of the bay. Then followed
the great lumbering boats, such as the Winan,
Northfield, Southfleld and Brooklyn. Each of
these squadrons numbered scores of boats.
Then came tbe big barges, Susquehanna,
Myers, Walter Sands and the rest, scenes or
dancing and hilarity all summer, each with a
tug tn pull It. After all these the yachts and
tugs and lighters and elevators and the rest.
We cannot speak for Europe, but in tbe new
worm mere never was sucn a parade, never
such an aggregationof vessels on one body of
THE PRESIDENT RECEIVES THE PUBLIC.
A People's Levee Held nt the CItr Hall for
Over 5,988 Persons.
At 3:40 o'clock, after nearly two hours at
the Equitable building, the President, with
nearly the same escort ,that accompanied
him there,, went to hold his public reception
in the City Hall. Except in Wall street, no
luildings were as profusely decorat
ed ,a, the Cjty Hall and ths post-
office. They were resplendent with
flags, and to these on tbe City Hall, shields
were added. Tbe people packed Broadway
and tbe Park Row side of the City Hall Park.
One hundred and eighty girls were standing in
two lines, facing one another, on tbe plaza and
steps of tbe City Hall, each with a basket of
roses on her arm and each bareheaded and
clothed in white. Tbe two girls from
each public school were little .maid
ens, the 13 from the Normal College
were on the threshhold ot womanhood.
They were chosen partly for th6ir beauty, and
they made a very pretty picture. One girl un
known to all of them, was on tbe roof of tbe
City Hall, and when the President arrived, she
pulled up with her own little bands the flacof

on City Hall, This little girl was Dolly Keese,
the daughter ot Mr. Martin Keese, the care
taker of the halk
Tbe President, Governor and Mayor', with
Hamilton Fish and William G. Hamilton,
mounted tbe steps, and then the inner stairs to
tbe Governor's room. As they passed between
tbe lines of girls their way was littered with
roses. When they had passed the people burst
past the police, and in a general scrimmage
picked up all the roses.
Up in the Governor's room Miss Anna Alida
Abrahams, tbe daughter of a well-known po
Ucereporter.addressedthePresidentbrlenyand prettily. He responded, and after a brief pro
pamine bad been followed tbe populace was
let in. Five thousand persons in an hour were
hurried by the dais on which tbe officials
stood, both the public and their titled servants
merely having time to nod to one another.
That ended tbe formula for the'Srst of the
three great holidays, so far as the general pub
lic was concerned. The ball was all that re
mained. The President and his wife went to
the house of Vice President and Mrs. Morton,
at 85 Fifth avenue. That is to be their home
while in this city. At 7 o'clock they were en
tertained at 20 Gramercy Park by Mr. and
Mrs. Stuyvesant Fish. The great majority of
the members of the President's suite went to
the Fifth Avenue Hotel. and.sopner or later all
the men donned their dress snlts and the
women their Worth dresses or Fifth avenue
snbstitutes therefor, and made ready for the
Centennial ball, which opened at 9 o'clock at
tho Metropolitan Opera House.

Mr. McAllister spoke a little more warmly
about the dancing at tbe ball. "I wanted to
have a cotillon," he said, "a grand cotillon, in
which every one on the floor could take part.
A cotillon is the feature of every great ball
in Europe, and It would be a grand
affair here, don't you know. Anyone can
danco with anyone else, and it would be an
event in tbe lives of everyone there. But they
left the cotllion out, don't you know. But
they have adopted my idea about the quad
rille. There will be no side couples. I pro
posed this in order to save time. The
idea of having the President ushered
in by heralds was suggested to me by
Mrs. Vanderbilt, wbo had seen it at Queen
Victoria's fetes, you know. He will be met at
tbe carriage, by four fellows with long horns,
you understand, and they will give three blasts,
tbree blasts, you understand. Then an usher,
a great big fellow in continental costume, will
announce the President.' It will be very
grand. My idea was tb have
this ball an immensely ceremoni
ous affair, to be always remembered
don't you know. Mv plans are generally going
to be carried out, you understand; In fact tbey
couldn't help themselves. I bad made contracts
for the supper. I had imported tbe cigars for
them. I had arranged for the music and the
details of the decorations, and all there was to
do was to carry out my ideas. The committee
wanted to take tbe thing into their own hands,
and so I stepped aside.

SIGNIFICANCE' OF THE JUMP.
Sore and Steady Expansion of Local Indus
tries Beginning to Tell.
BIG GAIK OYER APRIL OF LAST YEAR
Pittsburg's big jump from seventh to fifth
place in the list of clearinghouse cities puts
another feather in her already well-plumed
cap. There were no specially large trans
actions here during the week to which any
considerable part of the increase could be
(attributed, nor was there so far as known
any unusual depression at St. Louis which
reduced her clearings below those of Pitts
burg. Judging from surface indications,
the conditions in both cities were about
normal. -The change in the financial posi
tions of the two cities is due solely to the fact
that PIttsbuig did the larger business. '
Pittsburg has been crowding the Southwest
ern metropolis for a year or two, and that she
has finally outstripped her is no more than had
been expected by those who have been careful
observers of tbe Clearing House returns. The
victory may not be permanent for a while, for
tbe balance Is so equally poised between them
that the least advantage In favor of one or the
otber. will turn the scale in its favo'r. But
while' this is true, the fact cannot be ignored
that throughout the year, the second quarter
of which is well advanced. Pittsburg has
shown greater industrial expansion than her
Western sister. In other words, while local
business returns have shown a large and
steady increase in 'the volume of
trade over the corresponding time of
last and previous years, those for St.
Louis have shown that she barely holds her
own. There-could be no stronger confirmations
tban this of tbe fact, so often set forth in this
department of The Dispatch, that all of our
local industries manufacturing, commercial
pnd financial are in an active and healthful
condition. If it be claimed that the bank clear
ings 'prove nothing, it must be admitted at the
same time that, as they represent the same
classes of transactions, their value is as great
here as in St. Louis or Chicago. To discrimi
nate in this respect against Pittsburg would be
both unjust and unfair, and give her rivals a
preponderance in the business wcrld to which
they are not justly entitled.
In commenting on Pittsburg's jump to fifth
place in the Clearing Hbuso returns, a Fourth
avenue banker said yesterday afternoon: "It
shows that we are doing something. We are
steadily gaining ground. St. Louis seems to be
about stationary. I don't know whether she is
finished or not, but I do know that Pittsburg is
not. Take speculation away from St. Louis
and I believe we would leave her behind every
day in the week, for I am confident that we
transact a larger volume of legitimate busi
ness. But that is not the point I want to make.
It Is that we are showing a steady, healthful
growth In every direction; that business is ex
panding, not with a boom, but with a careful,
determined movement that possesses every
evidence aud element of permanency, and that
none of our business Interests have been
pushed to a point that endangers their sta
bility. We have an Immense reserve force that
we can draw upon in case of need. We have
done wonders, but we are capable of still
greater things. St. Louis may down us occa
sionally, but In the end, and that is not very far
off, we win take a position above her and hold
on to It."

IJghtest Ran of Stock for Several Months
The run of stock was very light all around,
the lightest for several months. Markets
showed a decided improvement In general, and
in some lines prices were advanced.
The receipts of cattle were more than 100
head below those of last week. The good
butcher stock markets were in favor ot sellers
at an advance of 10c to 15c over last week's
prices. Buyers were glad enough to secure
their regular supplies at the advance. West
ern beeves, weighing 1,600 to 1,600 pounds,
ranged In price from $4 85 to $5 00; medium
weights, 1,200 to 1,400 pounds. $4 65 to $4 80;
prime light cattle. 900 to 1,100 pounds. $1 10 to
54 40; common to fair. $3 25 to $3 60; fresh cows
were held at $35 to $45, but no sales reported.
There were a nnmber of buyers on band ready
pay $25 to $30 for common milkers, but none of
this grade were in the pens. The range for
calves was 3c to 6c There were no supplies
of butcher cattle from suxroundjpg counties,
an unusual circumstance.
All the receipts of cattle were from Chicago,
with tbe exception of 11 bead. Following were
the consignments: To 1. Zelgler. 107 head; L.

11 head; total, 475 head; last week, 693 head;
previous week, 590 head.
The run of sheep and lambs was light, de
mand fair and market steady at last Monday's
prices. A number of wool sheep and yearlings
were among the offerings, and 507oc above
clipped was asked. There was, however, a
poor demand for wool sheep. The best heavy
wethers clipped sold at $1 755 00; clipped
yearlings, $5 756 00: spring lambs. 79c Re

Florida. A choice article was selling on lib
erty street to-day at 25c per quart. Monday1
was slightly blue for produce men. A raw at
mosphere, with early showers. Is always de-
pressing to trade, and when such is the state
of things on Monday there is a marked In
tensity to the depression. There is, however,
an improved tone to the produce trade as com
pared with what we have experienced for a
month or two back.
