INDIANA SOLDIERS-SAILORS !
MONUMENT TO THEIR
Teeming Crowds In Indianapolis to
Witness the Ceremonies; G. A. R.
Takes Prominent Part.
Indianapolis, Ind. May 15. With
bright sunshine and blue sides, with
a grand parade of citizen soldiers,
with teeming crowds, and in the pres
ence of a distinguished company the
Indiana soldiers and sailors monu
ment was dedicated to"day. It was
a gala day in the city. Thousands
of veterans here for the annual state
G. A. It. encampment took part in the
dedicatory ceremonies. The stars
and stripes floated from all the pub
lic buildings, and from hundreds of
The ceremonies began at 10 o'
clock. The speakers' rostrum, on the
north side of the monument, was
handsomely decorated with shields,
coats and afms and large brass
eagles. All the hotels, club houses
and other buildings facing the circle
were decorated with flags and bunt
ing. Rev. D. R. Lucas, past chaplin-in-cbief
of the G. A. R., opened the
exercises with an impressive invoca
tion. Then came an address by the
presiding officer, Major General Lew
Wallace, Major G. V. Menzies, on be
haK of the board of control, present
ed the monument to the state for
whom it was formally accepted by
Governor Winfield T. Durbin. Fol
lowing these addresses came the
dedicatory ritualistic services under
the auspices of the Grand Army. The
oration of the day -vas delivered bj
General John W. Foster. The exer
cises were brought to a close with a
poem written for the occasion by
James Whitcomb Riley.
This afternoon came the spectacu
lar feature of the dedication in the
form of a monster military parade.
The parade embraced the procession
of the Grand Army veterans from all
parts of the state and was one of the
most imposing military demonstra
tions ever seen "in the city. The line
formed shortly after 1 o'clock at the
entrance of the state house under the
direction of General James R. Carna
han. The state militia, cadets and a
band from the Soldiers' Orphans'
home at Knights, the famous Black
Horse troop from the Culver Mili
tary academy, the seventeenth
mounted infantry and various other
military and semi-military organiza
tions. An interesting feature was
the torn and tattered battle-flags of
the various Indiana regiments.
Washington street, Pennsylvania
avenue and other thoroughfares in
cluded In the line of march were
thronged with spectators, wjiu
cheered the veterans and young
soldiers enthusiastically. The re
viewing stand was located on the
north side of the manumcnt. Con
spicuous among those occupying
seats on the stand were General Eli
Torrance, commander-in-chief of the
G. A. R., and Governor Durbin, sur
rounded by his staff.
The monument unveiled today is
probably the handsomest memorial
of Its kind in the country. In 1887
the state legislature made an appro
priation for the monument and its
construction occupied nearly ten
years. It is an Imposing shaft of In
diana white stone and in height is
surpassed only by the Washington
monument at the national capital. It
Is capped by an allegorical figure
fifteen feet in height. An added at
tractiveness is given by the magnifi
cent fountains and huge bronze
groups. The memorial itself occu
pied a conspicuous position in the
public park known as the Circle in

the trust's advertising agent that he
had secured the publication of paid
articles in various newspapers, urg
ing reduced tariff rates on Cuban
sugar. He also cited Havemeyer'u
statement that the consumer will re
ceive no benefit from the proposed re

Washington, May 15. Advocates of
