A special trula left the Forsyth street
crossing on the Western tad Atlantic

the purpose of meeting the President's

Brown, the president of the road, con

other friends and relatives of the senator.

' blazing out in the darkness,' hore and
there big bonfires were burning and hun
dreds of people were gathered along th
' railroad to welcome the coming ol the
President, At Big Shanty the special train
was reversed being, placed in front in

the car and welcomed the President on
i behalf of the Western & Atlantic" roal,
assuring him of the provisions made for

At Keuncsiw the entire paity stopied

of fireworks ' upon the mountain. The
weather was very bad, and clouds hang

the scene was beautiful and greatly ad

the train proceeded to Atlanta, making
no further stops. At Marietta and at

As the train tiored the centre of At
' lsnt vast crowds were seen along the
track, and from every window face after
face appears!. The tops of cars on side
tracks were literally packed with people,
and it seemed a if the whole city was out
to witness the arrival. As the train passed
under the Broad street bridgo the artil
lery began to boom forth its salutes, and
to the uoise of cannon, the explosion of
fireworks and the hoarse shouting of the
enthusiastic multitude, the President en

v As the coaches rolled into the ear shed,
dividing a solid line of people who quick

train tried to catch the tint glimpse of

porters opened tha rear door of tho rear

came lurii. Itcd lluhts bad been placed
along tha entrance to tha candied, and
fur streets were throngs of ladies - and
gentlemen, standing out in the rain and
undergoing all sorts of discomforts that
they might see the President and" his
wife. As the carrioge bearing the presi
dential party drew near ' the hotel, the
crowds proceeded, with cool deliberation,
to yell themselves hoarse. . How they did
yell I It was the old-fashioned yell, right
from the heart," und meant volumes.
As Mr". Cleveland was walk! g across tho
sitlo-walk to the hotel door, nn old Con
Moderate veteran, regardless of the inter
ference of the soldiers, ran up to him and
nutted him on tho back. No sooner had
the party entered the door than
crowds in the streets disponed.
There have been days' and days In At
lanU, but never anything thatcould com

Cleveland's recesition.'H It was Atlanta's
day, and riht royally did the Gate Ctfc
of the South pay her tribute Of respect

that could bo beard on all sides. It
seemed as if not only all Georgia, but tht

poiled it all. and after about an hour's
promiscuous shooting off of the big and
little guns, the affair was given over.
Competent judges placed the number of
the crowd assembled at 00,000 aud they
simply overwhelmed the soldiers, pre
vented their maneuvering, and good
naturedly aided the elements in smashing
the slated prograine into smithereens.
Between the hours of four and six o'clock
in the afternoon, a reception was ten

and about 400 of the lovely belles of the
South attended. Mrs. Cleveland was
most gracious and pleasant during the
entire afternoon and confirmed the . im
pression she had made upon Atlanta so
ciety at the previous entertainments.
The reception was one of the pleosantest
and ea kst ever given in Atlanta, and in
every arrangement and uct .il passed on
delightfully. . r . . . .. ..
; Some weeks since aa oniciat invitation
wa extended by the exp: aition managers
to the Georgia Weekly Press association
to yisit Atlanta with their families and
be presented to President Cleveland and
his lovely wife. Th? associativa met in
the courthouse at 0 a, ra. and found that
nothing had been done to arrange for the
reception. Finding many of the editors
from Florida, Alabama and Tennessee
desinng to unite, the party resolved
itself into the 'Southern Wecklv Press
association," and within two hours
badges were printed, and an engagement
made for 4 :30 p. m. at the Kimball House
with the committee having charge of tho
entertainment of President Cleveland.
Promptly at the hour set, about fifty of
the editors met in the reading room of
the Kimball, proudly displaying their
handsome white satin badges, and im
patiently waited to be summoned to the
presence of the President. . The minutes
ran aionir. and at 8:30 there was talk of
disbanding in disgust, but the advice of
the cooler neaas prevauea, ana at o p.
President Cleveland arrived at tne
hotel, renator Colquitt was made ac
quainted with the state of affairs, and he
at once communicated witn rremaeni
Cleveland. The answer came quick,
positive and satisfactory from Mr. Cleve
land: ,aSay to the gentlemen of the press
that they shall have precedent of all oth
ers, and I will gladly receive them just aa
soon as I can get a parlor lighted np." In
a few moments tho psrty were martoalled
in a semi-circle in the main parlor, not a
person being admitted who did not wear
the coveted badge, and the President
entered the room. Every editor was
cordially shaken by1 tha hand by 31'.

troduced by Senator Colquitt, and more
than that, there waa no push or hurry,
affording every gentleman a chance to
exchange a few words with tho President.

Tho commercial men, commonly designa

reception. An impromta reception was
given at Governor Gordon's mnnion, and
tiiouoands availed themselves of a pre
acntati m to Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland.
At nighMhe torchlight procession pa

fine a display a was hoped for. Tho
proeion was some time in forming,
and as they moved iff, with thou
sands of torches lighting np the streete
and their pathwav luminoift with the
roseate light of red fire and the rapid
flight . f Itoman candles, the scene was
bewildering and enthucing. The proccs
ition moved down Alabama street to
Whitehall, up Whitehall to Kters, down
Pt tcra to Pryor, and up Pnor to Ala
bama, down AlaUma to Loyd, tip Lord
to Walt, and thence up Wall street to tha
Kimlioll House and the artesian well.
The siJcwslks along the line of march
were densely packed with men, women
and children, who forgot tha descending
rain in their' enthusiasm, and
chcetcd the men in the proces
sion almost continuously. The rep
rescntativea of the Salvation Army, a
feature of tha Commercial Travellers'
Company in the procession, elicited con
siderable spplauso by their skillful hand
ling of tba tambourine. It was 9.30
when the carriages containing the gticsU
of tho evening drew up by the sde of
the stand at the artesian well. From the
first C4rrlge stepped tho President, who
wa escorted to Ins place by Frank Ar
nold, who had come In the carriage with
him. Then fol'owed Postmaster General
Vilss and Ir. Brysnt, with other mem
bers of the committee. The weather was
o inclement that Mrs. Cleveland thought
it best for her not to venture out and abe
viewed the pruces-lon from her toora.
After lite torch bearers had been missed
in front of the stand and the space In
closed by the fopr had lnn filled, W.T.

with the earnestness and cordiality of the

A passenger train, scheduled as the first
section ot jno. Ol, teit Atlanta, us.,
on te Piedmont Air Line Railroad,
crowded to its utmost carrying capacity
on time, with Engineer Wall and Con
ductor Marshall in charge. A second
section left Atlanta heavily loaded, two
hours after, running only to Greenville,
where it arrived at 5:20 a. m. Tte
passenger train consisted of seven coaches,
mail, baggage and express cars.' Owing
to the largo number of passengers, mak
inz many Hops necessary, the train lost
time for the entire distance to Greenville,
8. C, arriviug there over four hours late.
At this point, the second section was laid
out, and No. 31 received orders giving it
the right of way, and left the station at
J :05, four hours and twenty-five minutes
behind schedule time.' The train was as
sured a clear track, orders having been
telegraphed to the south bound freight
to side track at Greer's station until num
ber 81. arrived, It looks as if these or
ders were disregarded by Conductor Har
ris and Engineer Revel of the freight,
thereby causing the wreck and loss of
life. The two trains came together in
the fatal crash in a cut at the end of a
long curve, three and one-half miles
south of Greer's station, at 6:30 a. m
Both trains were running at accelerated
speed, gained by reason of the down
crade to the cut in which they met, and
thero was no warning to the engineers of
cither train until a few seconds before they
struck, giving no time for escape, and
the escape of the engineer of the freight
tram, as far as known, without injury.
must be regsrded as miraculous.
The wreck took fire from tho engines, but
beyond the destruction of a box car, no
damage resulted from the flames. Sev
eral cars of ' both trains- were badly
wrecked and were piled up in a chaotic
nisss, the express, mail and baggago car
being literally tora to pieces. The debris
filled both sides of the cut, making it
somewhat difficult to assist
the iniured " from the - wreck.
The following is a list of the killed and
injured : Bob Wall, engineer passenger
train: Louis Webster, fireman freight
train: Mrs. -f lamp M'Dowell. of Ashc-
ville: J. R. Erwin. express messenger,
one leg broken and foot mashed; Edward
Harnett, fireman passenger train, arm
torn and mingled, also badly scalded;
recovery doubtful; Phillip Block (col
ored), freight brakeman, concussion of
btain; Chaplain Chase, Spsrtanburg, S.
C, ugly gash in leg; Willie E win,
brother of express messenger, bruised;
Mis Mary M'Dowell, Asheville, X. C,

C, bruised; W. R. Wilson,' mail agent,
Atlanta, painfully bruise J; S. M. Dyke
man, mail agent, Atlanta, painfully
bruised; a colored brakeman, two other
men, and a tramp, names not known.
There are conflicting reports as to tho
whereabouts of the conductor and engi
neer of tlie freight train, but as they have
not been seen since the futul crash, it is
presumed that they feared the conse
quences of an affair for which they are
held rcponib!c, and disappeared.
The f't express on the Chesapeake &
Ohio R-iilroad, consisting of six coacbci,
going west, met with au accident twelve
miles below Charlestown, W. Va in
which SO asners were more or less in

ncvcral were seriously hurt. The acci
dent was cau-cd by a defective switch,
over whicli the engine, baggage, express
and mail cars passed unharmed, but the
three middle coaches, all well filled with
pasftenger, were thrown from tho track,
and two of them turning com-
id.tcly, over, one , turning twice.
