Indiana and many from Ohio Illinois Kentucky anil Missouri waj represented and when tho pararle started had places thurein The parade moved at 1 p m and was a notable one and the line of march Mas crowded with thousands of cit Izfrna who loudly cheered the marching hosts At tho Mouuiiiunt Situ Tho mass ol people in front and around tho monument by it p m the hour sot for tho exercises to bo yiven was simply im possible to estimate It was a sea of that extended in every direction about as far as the eye could reach The pro gramme at the statuo was as follows A welcoming address by Governor Hovey who introduced Frederick Rimcl presi dent of the monument association us chairman of the meeting music by a chorus of 500 school children invocation by the Rev J S Jeuckes historical state ment by President Rand unveiling ot the monumtmt by Mrs HemlrickH dedicatory ode by James Whitoorab Kiley address by Senator Turpie and benediction by Bishop Clmtard But several speeches were delivered that were not on the pro gramme after Tnrpie had concluded Unveiling tlie An interesting incident of the ceremo nies was the unveiling of the statue This duty lad been assigned to Mrs Hendricks She had received an ovation all along the line of march and again when she was seen to ascend the platform and take her seat The close of the singing of the hymn America was the signal to unveil and an the strains of music ceased the widow of the revered statesman pulled the line which unloosed the flag which veiled the statueand as the folds full away and uncovered the wellknown features of the dejul statesman a mighty shout went up that rolled from center to circumfer ence of the vast throng and was taken up again and again until the roar was like the meeting of mighty waters Tiirpies AddrosR A dedieatpry pde by James Whitcomb Hiley was then read ant the address of the dar followed Senator Turpie being the speaker His oration WHS a fitting eulogy oil great Koosier statesman He traotd hid career from his birth in Ohio to his untimely death told of his firm stand for the Union in the days of01 defended and eulogized his position dur ing reconstruction days when he insisted that the states had never been out of tho Union that the acts oE secession were in valid and that as soon as the war was over the southern states dropped back into their places in the Union with all their rights unimpaired Said the orator Thus he taught the lesson of those days never to be forgotten that the war had been waged for the preservation o the Union not for the destruction of tho states and he declared that Hendricks position had been repeatedly confirmed since that time by the United States su preme court Clown of Turples Aildross In conclusion the speaker said If Webstor be styled the expounder of the the old constitution with its half truths and compromises upon a subject noted but unnamed therein Hen dricks may be as justly called the ex pounder of tho now If the one is known 88 the coiutructionist the other will be known as the reconstvuctiouist of his age the true interpreter of the constitu tion revised amended and of the nature nnd character of the union thus reformed restored and reestablished Amid the clangor of arms tho shout ings and thunders of embattled hosts scarcely died away he was preeminently the civilian nnd publicist of that moment ous and perplexing period His perora tion WHS a glowing eulogium of the dead statesman Some interpolated Features This speech with a benediction was to have closed the exercises but there were several distinguished men whom the peo ple wanted to hear and they would not be denied A feature that was interpolated just after the opening prayer was the pre soutation by Gen Dan Sickles of New York to Mrs Hontlricks of a wreath of roses three feet in diameter sent by the Tammany sodoty In presenting it Gen Sicklest said that he had been commis nioned by the most ancient political or ganization in America to bring this wrenth and place It on the tomb of Hen dricks in the name of Tamrnany hall More than thirty years ago he had been the envoy of the same society to offer a similar tribute to the memory of Daniel Webstor Gen Sickles eulogized the life and works of Hendricks and in conclud ing ojiked Mrs Hendricks to accept the wreRth as a token of the esteem ad miration for her illustrious husband who in his lifetime had so ably championed the principles so to Tammany hall Mrs Hendricks accepted the wreath and bowed her thanks while the spectators cheered Governor Hill Had to Speak Music followed Senator Turples ora tion and Bishpp Chatard of Vincennes was about to pronounce the benediction when 11 veto was put on that part the programme at that time by cries that swelled louder and louder for Governor HilL The governor had come to the ded ication with the express condition that he not be asked to speak but the de mand was too vociferous and he slowly re sponded As he went forward he was j greeted with enthusiastic cheers He said I that Hendricks was uthe cool steady loyal unostentatious hut consistent porter of thu government in its dayi of peril he loved his state as he lovtd his country his successes in your pride nnd glory and when he died it was four hour of mourning His Fame the Nations Continuing the governor said Hit fame however does not belong to Indiana alone it belongs to New York as well and to the whole Union It should not be for that while he was the governor ot i your state and your servant in many other stations of trust within your domain he aiso n representative in congress a senator of the United States and the vice president of the nation There Is not citizen in any part of this broad land of ours no matter how humble he may be or under what skies he may have been bom may not justly feel that of the glory which the life and public service of Thomas A Hendricks reflected upon the whole share to him A Tribute from IVew York The governor concluded his remarks with the following words Among the illuijtrr ous men who have been given to the country by the mighty west during the last half century and whose lives acidl in fluences have helped shape our national destiny conspicuous will stand forth that distinguished character whose name is on every lip at this hour and whose niiem ory will especially ever remain engrafted upon the hearts and entwined in the af fections of tho people of Indiana cit izens of New York for whom I particu larly speak today and in whose behalf I am permitted to pay this brief tribute to one whom we regarded as the typical American of his time join with you through their representatives here in dedicating this monument and in ex pressing their admiration for the genius the patriotism the integrity the private life and public character of Thomasi A Hendricks tho scholar the jurist the representative the senator the governor the vice always the man of the people Words of Praigo from Ohio When the speaker resumed his seat and the cheering had subsided Governor Campbell was called for He spoke briefly an follows Indiana emblazons the bright est page of her history with the name of him whose monument is here dedicated with snch becoming ceremony Ohio stands modestly aside yet nevertheless rejoices in the lesser glory which is re flected upon herself She gave birth to Thomas A Hejulricks resigned him at an early age to tho state of his adoption watched his growth with maternal fond ness and lamented his death She conies to his bier the second mourner In that great concourse of commonwealths which today pays homage to his memory Brief speeches were made by Governor Francis of Missouri and Gray and then the denedlction was pro nounced Kegrets for NonAttendance A letter of regret atinability to attend was read from President Harrison who said that public business kept him at Washington City but that it would have afforded him much pleasure to have joined lu the testimonial of respect nnd affection for his distinguished fellow townsman His eminent public services and his faithful discharge ot many and important official duties render the com memoration of his public and private virtues most fitting and proper wrote the president Attorney General Miller also expressed his regret that he could not attend the ceremonies and sent a brief eulogy Letters in the same tone were re ceived from Vice President Morton and Chief Justice Fuller A Visit to Mrs Hendricks Governor Hill and Gen Sickles paid a long visit to Mrs Hendricks at her resi dence She presented the governor with a goldheaded cane which had been given to Governor Hendricks by the state offi cers in 1S7C and Gen Sickles received a cane which had been received from the Shelby county Democracy in the fifties In the course of the visit Gen Sickles is said to have remarked that Cleveland had been unfortunate in giving offense to old line Democrats and taking up with new men and that the expresident had taken up with the civil service reformers a little prematurely before he knew much about them Whereat Mis Heudricks went to Governor Hills side and seizing his hand remarked Governor I hope you will get there NO TRACE OF THE MEN Farm HH1 Mine Eiitcro d at Last and the Search Abandoned DUKBAK Pa July into the Farm Hill mine was effected yesterday
