the veterans think, and some of them
have expressed the opinion vigorously.
Announcement by G. A. R. Head.
In a recent announcement Harvey M.
Trimble, commander In chief of the
Grand Army of the Republic, paid at
tention to the proper observance of the
day. He said:
"From coast to coast at noon of next
Memorial day members of the Grand
Army of the Republic, Sons of Vet
erans, Daughters of Veterans, Ladles
of the Grand Army of the Republic
and Ladles' Relief corps will stand un
covered for five minutes while bells are
tolled and flags are draped at half
most. President Toft will be asked to
forward such observance of the day by
a national proclamation. This will be
In accordance with the suggestion
made by the Philadelphia Press last
Memorial day and Indorsed unani
mously by the national encampment of
the Grand Army of the Republic In
Rochester last summer."
The sentiment expressed finds an echo
In the south. Thla year no great "blue
and gray" celebration will take place.
but next year, not on Memorial day,
but on the fiftieth anniversary of the
battle of Gettysburg, tho greatest fight
of the war, there will be a gathering of
the survivors that will be noteworthy.
It will be a "love feast" such as took
place last year on the battlefield of
Bull Run when the "Yanks" and the
"Rebs" foregathered to tell how they
fought one another fifty years before.
In an official order to the United Con
federate Veterans, Issued early this
year. Lieutenant General C Irvine
"The great stato of Pennsylvania has
decided to celebrate with due dignity
and Importance In July, 1911, the fif
tieth anniversary of the battle of Get
tysburg. Pennsylvania appointed a
commission to carry out this plan.
Thla commission has presented the
matter to congress. At the meetings
in Washington, Jan. 11 and 11, your
commander was so fraternally and
urgently Invited that he felt he would
be faithless to your best interests were
be not to accept. He therefore did so
and was met by his once enemies so
cordially as to disarm prejudice and
make him feel that they were honestly
desirous of commemorating a peace
with whloh the soothing hand of time
has blessed our country.
"Tour commander feels that the
time has come when by Invitation of
our one time foes we can unite with

peace which we pray may forever
