The Sons of Veterans brought up the rear of the first division ptoper. Governor Campbell and staff, raountod on magnificent specimens of horseflesh appeared in the second division, which was devoted to the National Guard. The places of honor at their head had boon'assignc-d to the Sliendan Sabres, of Pittsburgh: the Washington Infan- try, of tho same city; the.Jackson Rifles, of Jackson,, and the Third Regi- ment of the West Virginia National (iiiard. Tuero was a break between the second and third divisions, but when the First Cleveland Troop, with a detachment of sailors and from tho United States steamer Michigan, came into view the cheering was renewed with a will. This was thP special escort to the President and distinguished guests. President Harrison.witti Vice Morton, occupied the first carriase. drawn by four horses, while in the foi- vehicles were ex-Presidcnl Secretaries Rusk and Miller, Postmaster General AVanamakor, Gen- eral .T.

Italian and Hungarian Knights, liohesian citizens and Catho- lic Knights. A miscellaneous contin- gent of citizens on foot and in brought up the rear of the twelfth and last division. From beginning to eud the parade was nearly three miles in lensrth. It was two o'clock when the head ol the column had passed under the deco- rated arch at the cemetery gate and twenty minutes later before the Presi- dent a'nd party reached the grand stand. Fully twenty thousand people had al- rcadv around memorial although the parade was still in ress; while those who had been viewing it from the thoroughfares poured in like a resistless torrent. Littlo time wai lost in seating the visitors. Mrs. Gap- field, who had given a reception to the President early in the day, drore over to the cemetery in advance of tho proces- sion and, with her dsughter, Mollie Gar- fteld n. J. Stanley Brown, her son- in-law: Harry Garfleld and J. A. Gar- field, Jr., wore seated immediately be- hind the orator of the day, with the President on the Vice President Morton on the left, the members of the Cabinet supporting them on either side. The Singing of "America" by a choir of five hundred voices prefaced the exer- cises, and after ex-President Hayes had succeeded in securing attention from the multitude which, considering its Bize, was remarkably quiet and well or- eered, he made a few brief remarks as president of the Memorial Association. Prayer was offered by Bishop W. A. Leonard, of the Episcopal church, and then the presentation of lion. Jacob D. Cox, of Cincinnati, the orator of the day, was greeted with cheers loud and long repeated. Iu a. clear and distinct voice which could be heard far into the throng, ex-Governor Cox spoke as fol- lows: My AVe have come here to dedicate this memorial to one of our country worthies. Our task is not the mournful one which filled the streets of our cities witb fu- ueral i ageaut- nine years ago.
