Admiral Schley was Louisville's
gu'estoday. " He was greeted by an
Admiral's salute and a shouting
crowd of many hundreds at the sta-
tion. He was escorted to his car-
riage by the full committee repre-
senting his hosts and driveu to the
residence of Marion K. Taylor a
president of the board of trade. Mr.
and Mrs. Schley spent a quiet even
ing. They met only a few friends.
The trip trout Chicago was one
long ovation and so vigorous wore
some of the handclaps when the
seaman was enroute that his head
'was nearly out of business" as
tho admiral laughingly said.
The admiral made no speeches al-
though : ' !. Mops bespoke
a few xv. . i i . !... ii. Telegrams
from every station along the line
many of them stilting that the
school had been closed to allow tho
children to see the admiral wero re-
ceived. They asked tbe adiniral to
stand on tho platform fora moment.
