1The foreign ambassadors and Min

have made much of the Marshalls. The
President of the United States, b.1
virtue of his offBt'e and his manlfold
duties. rarely can. dine out. Mr. anc
Mrs. Marshall have given a number of
semI-public receptions on theirr. owi
account. The ambassadors almost al.
ways attended them. because they
liked the receptions, and they like the
Marshalls. There always has been a
-democratic spirit at these vtee-presi
dential affairs. The wonder is If there
is anything wrong in saying that or.
dinarily at these receptions Mr. Mar
shall has worn a sack coat, a busi

aI gn of 187h-76. Today, in the over
shadowing deeds of the great war, the
deeds' and hardships of the men who
fought on the plains are apt to be for
gotten. It can be said, however, with
9erfect' tr th at no Americein soldier

timgg worsie experiences than those
of their older comrades .who, in brol
lag -summer and freezing winter. hun
gry and haif-clad, hung on the trail of
the elusive red warriors.
Sympathy-'for the Indian.
Before going any further, let it be
said that all through the stories that
were told at the indian Wars dinner
ran the notes of sympathy for the In
dians whom these men had fought. It
can be said .that in this latter day
these soldiers of the Indian .wars who
bad been true to their duty, distasteful
-as it was, still feel resentment 'that It
was necessary for them to engage in a
kling warfare with the Indians. of the
West.
General King told of a command of
troops whieh, although it had suffered
at the' ha,nds of the Chejennes, had
suh sympathy and.adrairation for the
femen that the soldiers begged the In
dians to surrender and not to continue
the battle which meant virtually their
extermination.
The stories ofthO5edays on the Big
Horn the Belle Fouches and the Rose
bud; and on the pluins of western Kan
sas, of Colorado and the Panhandle of
Texas, to say nothing of the mountains
of Arizona, may sound like ancient his
tory. but they were as vIvid In recital
as if they were the affairs of yester
day. Tales of toilsome marches, with
the troops subsisting upon horsemneat,
with no bread or coffee or tobacco to
sustain them or to cheer them, were
the same stories that were told in the
East constantly frotn thirty to fifty
years ago, and yet brou'ght no proper
appreciation of the suffering and the
high "odeavor of the men who were
carrying o,ut the mandate of their get.
arament.
