SPRINGFIELD, 111., May 14.—Thousands of visitors from neighboring: towns helped the people of Springfield to xveleome the president. At Springfield Junction,'a short distance from the city, Gov. Fifer, Senators Cullom and Palmer, Congressman Springer, Mayor Lawrence and other prominent persons met the president at 9:15 o'clock and accompanied him to tliis city. On the arrival of the train here a presidential salute was fired by state troops. The distinguished guests, on alighting, were conducted to carriages in waiting, which were placed in the center of a procession composed of national gniard organizations, grand army poses. Sons of Veterans and secret societies, and the president was escorted through the principal streets to the Lincoln monument. The organizations taking part in the procession proceeded part of the way in electric cars in order to let the carriages make better time. A temporary stand at the monument accommodated the presidential party and their hosts during the exercises. Mayor Lawrence presided. Gov. Fifer delivered the address of welcome. The president gracefully acknowledged the complimentary greetings tendered him by the citizens of Springfield and vicinity. This, he said, 'was properly the culmination of. his tour. In the presence of the tomb of Lincoln he was inspired, and in adverting to the martyred president he paid an eloquent tribute to his memory. He and his traveling companions had been from the northwest to the limits of the western states, and had stopped at many spots of interest and looked upon many scenes that were full of historical interest. The interest in the journey thoagh culminated when they stood there for a few moments at the tomb of Lincoln. As he passed through the southern states and noticed centers of business industry, which had been builded since the war, as he saw the fires and furnaces kindled where there had been solitude, he could not but think and say that it was the hand thatnow lies in ashes beneath ; these stones that kindled and inspired all that he beheld. The president continued: "I come here to this consecrated and sacred spot with my heart filled with emotions of gratitude that that God who wisely turned toward our eastern shore a tody of God-fearir>g and liberty-loving men to found this republic did not fall to find lor us In the hour of our extremity one who was competent to lead the hearts and sympathies and hold up the courage of our people In a time of greatest national peril. [Applause,] I think the character of Abraham Lincoln is one that touches more people as we study it than any other character in American history. Washington stands remote from us. We think of him as dignified and reserved. But when we think of Lincoln we think of oco whose tender touch the ohildien, the poor of all classes of our people feel at their fireside. I think the love of our people Is drawn to him De- cause he had such & great heart—such a human heart. The trials and hardships ol his early life did not seem to d^ll his sensibility or his sympathy, and he was to the last greathearted. That sense of justice, that love of human liberty which dominated all his life is also another characteristic that our people will always love. You have here in keeping a most precious trust. Toward this spot the feet of tho; reverent patriots of the years to comn will wend their way, and as this story of Lincoln's lire Is read there will continually l£ spread through all our country influences and hopes and Inspirations to the generations of children that are yet to come. We can say nothing here that will deepen the impressions of this great life. I have studied it and been filled with wonder. His life was an American product. No other soil could have produced it and the greatness of it has not yet been discovered or measured. As the inner history of the time In which he lived is written •we flnd how his great mind turned and moved In times of peril and delicacy the forces of our country in their home and in their foreign relations with that marvelous tact, with that never-falling common sense which characterized this man of the people. "And what an impressive lesson we have thli morning as I see in Ifce uniform of my country, standing as guards around this tomb the sons of that race that had been condemned to stiver? and was emancipated oy his im-, mortal proclamation. What an appropriate' thing It is that these who were once a despised race, whose civil rights were curtailed even in this state, .are now the affectionate guardians of the ashes and the tomb In which they sleep. If we will all again and again read the story of Lincoln's life we will find" our minds and hearts enlarged, our life and character deepened and our consecrated devotion to the constitution and the flag of the government which he preserved to us deepened and intensified. [Applause.] ; "I shall go from this tomb impressed with now lessons and new thoughts as to the respon- siWlitles of those who have the honor and bear th« responsibility, though In less troublous times, of that great man before whose memory my soul bows down this morning." [Applause.] •: The president rose at 5 o'clock a. m. to witness the grand demonstration in Ms honor at Hannibal, Mo., which point was reached at 5:30 o'clock. Despite the early hour more than 5,000 people were assembled, and . they gave the president a warm . welcome. Edward Price introduced the president, who made a short - speech, in which he referred to the presence of the school children of the city in a touching manner. Messrs. Wanamaker and Rusk were introduced, . but they did not speak. Crossing tJP Mississippi river at Hannibal the train entered Illinois at 0 o'clock. The president shook hands with many people at Barry, Baylis, Griggsville and Bluffs, where short stops were made. Jacksonville's demonstration was participated in by several thousand people. A salute was fired, and militia paraded and the school children assembled at the station. Postmaster General Wanamaker followed the president briefly. All the speeches were enthusiastically cheered by the thousands packed about the platform, and at their conclusion the visitors were driven rapidly. under the escort of mounted aids, to t&e sta,to house, whefe another great crowd surrounded a platform in front of the capitol building. A few minutes were spent here, the president making brief remarks to the assemblage, and the carriages were again taken to Abraham Lincoln's tomb, where a short stop was made. Quick driving from the Lincoln tomb brought the party back to the station at the specified time and the train left for Indianapolis at 10:20 o'clock. THE KENTUCKY DERBY. It In Won by Kinjrmiin In tlm Slow TIm« of 2:G2>4. LOUISVILLE, Ky., May 14—The seventeenth Kentucky derby was ran Wednesday afternoon at Churchill Downs in the presence of 25,000 people. There were four starters. as follows: Kiftgroau, Hart Wallace, Balgowan and High Tariff. Kingman's great race at Lexington entitled him to first call in the betting, and it was a liberal bookmaker that laid odds of $200 to S500 on the winner. Balgowan was second choice at 5 to 2, with 8 and 10 to 1 obtainable against Hart Wallace and High Tariff. Isaac Murphy rode Kingman, and sent the horse in a winner by an open length. Balgowan was second, High Tariff third and Hart Wallace last. The time was 2:52.14. The distance was the regular derby route—l>a miles—and every horse carried 122 pounds. Spokane's time with Proctor Knott in the -1SS9 derby was 2:34>i. There was but little enthusiasm at the result, for the others seemed outclassed by Kingman. The pecuniary value of this year's derby is about .$4,700. Have Deserted Parnc 1. LONDON, May 1*.—E.
