It was a glorious day for Macon. The
'swan aong of the Confederacy,'! the
last review of- the Confederate veterans
by the man who was tbeir chief, was a
grand success,' and the wen, - who fol
i iiwcd through the fortunes of war the
dam and bars, were there in force to do
honor to that former chieftain. The
weather was decidedly unpropltious. ' At
about 10:1) Joe Mount, clanda Estea.
A. K. Freeman, W. C. 6herrill, J. T.
Rosa, L. C. Gugel, Bui Hope, -Ab Jonea
and W. A. Johnson, representing the
lunimiiico oi iwenry-nve wnicn nas naa
charge of the arrangements for the dem
onstration, marched up to the beautiful
residence which it Mr. Davia's Macon
home. Mr. Davis, in response to the
cnila apiieared upon the veranda, aur
loundud by the members of his family.
J oo Blount, chairman of the executive
committee, stepped forward, and in a
very pretty and appropriate speech ten.
tiered to Mr. Davis a very doe badge:
Tcara starU-d to Mr. Davis's eyes at he re
ceived the tribute of affection and in a
voice full f emotion he thanked the
young men for their gift. He said : "My
young countrymen: Words cannot ex
jxcat my gratitude. I am proud to
know that you hold in reverence the
memory and principles of your fathers. I
am glad of the fact that we are still a
free people, and I assure yon this token
will ever . be cherished by me. The
badge consisted oi two broad pieces of
ntUm with Georgia state flags pendant
from the rosette. The top ribbon was
a white one, and was one of the badges
worn by the executive committee of the
association, with the exception that it
bora Mr. Davit's name. The second rib
lon was a gray one, and bore, in gold
letters, . the following legend : "Mr.
Davis. .While the survivors of the Con
federacy do honor to their chief talan, we
their tons, remembering your faithful
neat to and sufferings for them, join our
ht'srta with their gratitude, and together
pledge you eternal kve. Our prayer is
Unit God, who has ever been just, may
still care for yon and, when the end comet.
crown your with glory that never fades
in acaute that never dit." lhsn Mr.
Mount turned to Miss Winnie and pre
sented her with a similar badge, '
Cant J. L. Hardt man, Jr., of the
Floyd Rifles, then stepped forward and
presented to Mia Davia another badge,
this time as a token of love from the
Floyd Rifles.' This badge was a very
pretty one a combination of tke Young
lien's Veterans' badge and that of the
military company. The ribbon of the
Rifle contained a list of the various bat
tles in which this famous company pr
ticipated. The two ribbons were Joined
by a pretty silver canteen. Short speeches
were made at the bouse by Governor Gor
don, Senator Colquitt and ex Governor
Watts, the war governor of Alalmma.
The young men wire introduced to the
distinguished people, and after music by
the band they naa taken with them, le-
1 From the time of the return of the
young men from tlilcmt, the streets be
gun to assume a decidedly lively apitcar-
ante. They bad been .crowded before,
but by noon "everything goea" seemed
to be the motto. A cannon bad been
placed ia portion oo Mulberry street, in
front of the Lanier house, and this was
fired at intervals of about live minutes.
A yell went up with every ronnd. A
yell tf joy, not of pain. The boys were
putting happy, Macon prohibition liav
leg begun to get in its work. Atone
o'clock the line of veterans, under com
mand rf Maj. William Hcfiry Ross, be
gan to form on Mulberry atrcet. It was
certainty a touching eight to see the
nnimcd and battle-scarred veterans, as
tiiry fell into line. Almost all of the
Houtbrrn state were represented, but
Georgians formed the bulk of the crowd.
Here and there a bettered and bullet
torn battle flag was to le seen, and the
sight of it made the blood tingle
and called for cheers from the crowd. It
was nearly two o'clock when the pro-ts-aion
moved. There was no liand in line,
but the hearty yells and cheers, first from
the veterans and then from the spectator,
who lined the sidewalks, furnished the
aweetest of antipbonal music. A courier
waa sent ahead to inform C'apt. Johnson
of the approach of alio column, A heavy
and comfortable armchair had Item
placed upon the veranda, and aa the
head of the procession waa seen rounding
the foot of the hill, Mr. Davis, Iraoir.g
upon the arm of Capt. Johnson, and sur
rounded by Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Hats, Mia
Davis and Mrs. Johnson appeared. Mr.
Davis sat in the chair wiih the ladies on
either sldft. His appearance was the sig
nal for loud cheering, and the crowds at
the foot of the hill, disregarding the ad
monitions of the two pol icemen who
were suppoaed to keep the crowds back,
clamberea over the fence and charged np
the hill. Kaeh tried to get as ner Mr.
Davla as possible, and the result waa a
blockade right at the start. Mr. Da
vis leaned over the ratling and
shook hands with a few before the
policemen and tome mounted soldiers sue
cerded In clearing a space for the line
of marchers. Governor and Mrs. Gordon
and (tenator and Mrs. Colquitt were
among the first to tske positions
beaides the distinguished guests. Quite
a number of prominent Atlanta and Ma
con people took places on J he veranda.
When U" veterans filed into yard tha
Bibb county raval y veterans lead the
line, and aa they passed, the members
doffed their hats to Mr. Davis and
cheered Id in Warmly. Then came the In. J
fantry, There were probably two thous-,
and men In line, and the spectators swelled
the crowd to five thousaud. As tho
leaders of the Infantry i cached the place
.where sut the man they had came to hon
or, they broke ranks aud amid tho great
est excitement crowded to the veranda.
It was a scene which one could never for
get. Cheering tbeir old chieftain as
Georgians alone can cheer, they crowded
and jostled, pushing and pulling one an
other I ko mdmcn, each intent upon
getting as new Mr. Davis as ho cou'd.
Then it looked as if the crowd, in its
mad cnthusisMn, would tear Mr. Da via
from ' tho veranda, which waa itself so
crowded that it was almost jinXsible
for those upon H to move. Realizing the
necessity for action, Senator : Colquitt
' mounted the railing, and after several at
tempts succeeded in tecuring compara
tive quiet. , Then he urged the crowd to
be lets demonstrative, calling etteution
to Mr. Davis's feeble condition, and urg
ing that they "shout for hint, worship
him, but for his ots dear sake do not
try to ahnke hands with him." For a
time Mr. Davis remained in his ch:iir,
content with bowing his acknowledge
ment, but it was not long before his en
thusiasm got the better of him, and he
rose to his feet - It ' was evident
that he had something, to any
au4 in a moment there wa almost per
fect silence. With his thin hand extend
ed toward one of tho old fliiga near by,
ho -said: "I ,am like that
flag tattered by storms and - year.
I love it' for its own take. I
love it for even yours. . I love it aa a me
mento of w hat your fathers did, and
what they hoped you would do. God
bliss you! I win see you again.1
The cheering of the crowd was deafen
ing. There were cries of"Gordon,""Gor
don," from all aides, and unable to refuse
these appeals, Georgia's gallant governor
stepped forward. There were loud cheers
and then comparative silence as he said:
"My brother soldiers, it is my infinite
pleasure, in your behalf j to welcome' to J
tnis great state ana to the hearts of the
people the grand old chieftain." Govern
or Gordon was frequently interrupted by
wild cheering. At the conclusion of his
remarks, the band-sbaking was resumed.
It waa soon apparent that there would
be no end to this if the veterans were al
lowed to have their own way, and ar
rangements were quietly made to get Mr.
Davis in the house. - A window back of
him was opened, and through it he
walked into the sitting-room. Mr. Davis
and the ladies rppeared npon the second
story balcony, and from there they greet
ed those below. Mr. Davis bowed in re
sponse to the continued cheering. This
lasted for some minutes, and after it was
announced that Mr. Davis would go to
the fair grounds, the crowd gradually
melted away. As the crowd melted away
from in front of the mansion, the dis
tinguished guests took carriages, which
were in waiting, and under escort of the
Bibb County Cavalry, were driven to the
fuir grounds. Mulberry street was
crowded with people. The drive was a
decided - ovation. Beaching , the
grounds the carriages drove direct
to the band stand, where
a large crowd was In waiting. The
grounds were full of veterans, who were
bound to get another look at Mr. Davia.
There waa a great deal of enthusiasm
manifested, despite the fact that many
of the people on the grounds were greatly
interested ia the horse racing, snd did
not seem to be aware of the presence of
the distinguished visitors. Arriving at
the stand .President Northen introduced
Governor Gordon, who said a few words
and introduced Gen. Clement A Evana,
Gen. Jackson, and ex-Governor Watts,
alio, by the way, ia the only surviving
member of the Davis cabinet, who made
ih'rt speeches. Then Gen. Henry R.
Jackson was introduced, and made a
speech. V.! - r . : .
Mrs. Davis, Mrs. Ilsya and Mits Win
nie were called for, and each bowed her
ficknnwlcdgnicnls. Returning from the
s'and the veterans crowded around, and
tlx scenes of a few hours before came
near being repeated Mr Davis got in
to a close carriage, but some of the wild
enthusiasts who wanted to shake
his , hand broke in the glass
with their AVts. The only haira done
was to their vwa knuckles. The Davis
party dmvo. back to Ilillcrcst;
At half post seven o'clock the grand
torchlight rrn esion of the Young Men's
Veteran im btinn began to move from
the Floyd Rifles armory up Mulberry
street. . The display was an excellent
one.and there were prolmbly 3,000 torches
in line, l'asaing by the Johnston man
sion, they were reviewed by Mr. Davis,
who sat at a second-story window.

v WHERE THE MONET CAMS tROV.
The first money received by the Expo
sition was the $15,000 granted by the
Citv Council. It was provided that this
money should be paid on a building
which should remain tho property of the
city, and Mr. Collier and Mr. Lowry ex
ecuted bonds that this should be done.
Every dollar of the fifteen thousand bos
been invested in tho main building, and
tho title to that amount remains with the
city. The building has been inturcd for
$23,000, fifteen thousand of which has
been assigned to the city, so that the
city's investment is safe. The following
is about the total ot the income:
From tho city 9
From first mortgage purchase
From second mortgage bonds..
From the Exposition Company
From Exjtosition company,dona-
From "popular subscription" to
From Driving club subscription "
From railroad subscriptions. . . ,
From W. & A. railroad on fire
Totul from bonds, subscrip
tions and donations $116,230
INCOME mOM THE EXPOSITION.
The following is the approximate in
come from tho Exposition itself. Most of
the items are definite but a few are es
timated: From sale of privileges $(1,000
From floor space and entry fees 2, 300
From sale of exhibitors' ticket 2.000
From receipts st the gate 69,816
From percentage on the Rich
mond and Danville transfer
tickets. t 6,000
From admission coupons sold by
. railroads and not reported, es
From sources not Included in
Total ineome from Exposition.. $92,846
Total incrome from other sources 116,230
Total expenses 109,530
This is simply the profit of the Expo
sition over its own expenses. It does
not cover, of course, the immense amount
iuvested in the property.
TB SALE Of PRIVILEGES.
Privite es on the ground, while they
netted about six thousand dollars, were
s ild, it Is claimed by the managers, en
tirely too low. The popcorn man paid
$50 for his privilege, and cleared $100 a
day; prlntinif privilege for $375, and
four times that inuh was cleared ; two
restaurants brought $700; there wss no
estimating their profits; a lunch stand
that tented for (30 fold $900 in one day,
and so on through tEo list. The privi
leges should have brought the Exposition
$12,000, aud would have then loft more
