Ono oT llio Speeches Mndc In Hilo
on Decoration liny. ;
1 The following is the text of the I
remarks mndc by II. L. Ross at the
Decoration Day services at the
Hail! Church last Sunday evening:
"The soldiers, living and dend, in
whose honor we meet today, (ought
better than they knew. When vic
tory crowned the Union forces at
Appomntox, our soldiers knew they
had made their country one and
inseparable; they knew that their
blood and their toil and the lives
of their comrades had blotted from
the pages of the Nation's life, the
stain of slavery; they knew that
the future of each integral state' was
wrapped in the common fate of all;
but they did not know, they could
not realize, that their valorous
deeds made it possible for the tot
tering Republic to become ere the
close of the century not an Em
pire but the mistress of kingdoms
One who opened his eyes on the
light of day, after the termination
of that most trying contest, must
speak only from the light of his
tory. The mighty conflict, dealing
death and destruction on every
hand, is past. The sword has
been beaten into the plow-share.
The instruments of war are laid
aside for the implements of indus
try. A country torn and bleeding
from interuiciue war has in a little
more than a third of a century de
veloped into one of the richest and
most prosperous on the face 6f the
globe. Peace aud brotherhood
have perched on the standard of
united effort, aud today an un
divided country, with one flac and
one purpose, marches on with the
nations of the earth to perform its
A union of states had been
formed, a republic born. Such a
departure from all previous forms
of government would necessarily
aud did produce divergent opinions
as to the rights of the individual
states, aud the construction to be
placed on the constitution creating
such an entity.
For years the discussion con
tinued, growing in bitterness and
intensity as they passed. Men
trembled with tear for the safety of
the Union. The intense feeling aud
interest can be discovered from the
closing prophetic paragraph of Web
ster's reply to Hayne:
"When my eyes shall behold for
the last time the sun in heaven,
may I not see him shining on the
broken and dishonored fragments
of a once glorious Union: on states
dissevered, discordant, belligerent;
on a land rent with civil feuds, or
drenched, it may be, in fraternal
blood! Let their last feeble and
lingering glauce behold rather the
glorious ensign of the Republic,
now known and honored through
out the earth, still full high ad
vanced, its arms and trophies
streaming in their original lustre,
not a stripe erased or polluted, not
a single star obscured; bearing for
its motto no such miserable inter
rogatory as, 'What is all this
worth?' or those other words of de
lusion and folly, 'Liberty first and
Union afterjvardsP but everywhere,
spread all over its characters of liv
ing light, blazing on all its ample
folds, as they float over the sea and
over the laud, that other sentiment,
dear to every true American heart
'Liberty and Union, now aud for-
itrr nitit ntwl iticAnnrnfi1 ' '
The result of that oratorical con-
I test was at the time thought to de-
1 termine the question, but its only
effect was to delay the final issue.
1 Later the whole situation was
epitomized by the immortal Lincoln
when he said: "A house divided
against itself cannot stand." "This
nation cannot continue half slave
and half free."
To the minds aud hearts of those
patriots the suggestion of a divided
country was intolerable; their very
beings burned with concern, their
hearts pulsated aud throbbed with
emotions that would not be con
trolled, they found their souls fired
with intense patriotism, which
cried out from their very depths
"My Country shall not be severed"
aud then on the altar of their nation
they dedicated their lives, heir
fortunes, their all, in its defense.
Collateral facts, local couditiotiH,
and individual opinions, affect the
citizens nt Inrge only ns far as such'
facts, conditions, or opinions have
a tendency to change, alter or de
stroy the ground w.ork of the gen
eral government. Slavery might
have existed for many years, but
ior me tact mat the citizen at large
saw that the institution was seeking
to lay its blighting hands, not only
011 the Federal Government, hut to
force itself upon unwilling States,
and for those patriots.to feel that a
moral foe threatened the stability
of their Government, was to act,
and to act by removing the impend
ing danger. "Thus slavery was
wiped from the face of our land
aud millions of bondmen set free.
Do those of us, who know 'only
from history, fully appreciate the
emotions and passions that filled
the breasts of our fathers in those
trying days? Can we grasp a con
dition that will cause a country to
divide itself; nay, not only a
country that will divide, but a con
dition that will cause a brother to
fight against his brother, aud a fa
ther against his son?
Wc read of the mighty conflict,
of the bloody war, and let us pause
to say that each contending army
believed in the justness of their
cause; wc note as we pass the car
nage of that contest, the priva
tions aud suffering of the soldier on
the field, in camp, and iti prison,
the once happy homes draped in
mourning for the fathers, sons, or
brothers, who crimsoned the ground
with the blood of their patriotic de
votion. A united country, freemen,
bought at such a price, is our heri
tage. The authors of such an her
itage are one by one passing on;
answering to that final roll-call,
but their deeds shall live in history,
and in the hearts of the American
citizens shall ever be cherished the
the memory of the authors ol their
The victorious soldiers of the
Union army could not forsee the
consequences of their heroism.
Had they failed, then Washington,
and Jefferson, and Franklin had
failed; had they failed, constitu
tional liberty under a republic had
failed, and freedom, in a laud dedi
cated by heaven as her untrammeled
empire, would ha.? perished from
the highways of the earth to be
found only in mountain fastnesses,
by the wild cataract in primeval
woods. Europe's systems of op
pression waited with eager expec
tation the issue of our domestic
struggle. Mouarchs made swift
plans to usurp a seat in this rich
laud made desolate by war. Spain
thirsted for her glories lost and
hungered to regain her lost do
minion. Had Grant been less
powerful than Caeser, had his men
been weaker than steel, the crowned
head conspiracy to reestablish the
monarchial form of government on
American soil would not have been
defeated. The ill fated Prince Max
imillian, instead of being shot
would have been Vice Regent of
Mexico under the patronage of
Spain, Prussia and Austria.
With European soldiers and a mon
archial money chest, a warrior
prince could have invaded Dixie
from the south, and the helpless
southern people would have now
been vassals to Spain. But Des
tiny, the Lord and the North con
spired together for the happiness of
man. The sword that restored the
Union made the nation strong
against the world, and in the teeth
of the allied powers of Europe has
maintained the Monroe doctrine
from the grave of Maximillian to
the bombardment in a Venezuela
bay. Had the soldiers of ,65
known that their valor was build
ing for liberty, this edifice, their
toils, their wounds aud their suffer
ing would have been less bitter.
We have been a world power
since Lee surrendered his sword to
Grant, and it was in humanity's
suffering name that we first saw fit
to exercise our strength in the full
capacity of manhood's estate, in
striking from oppressed and starv
ing Cuba the shackles of tyrannical
Spain. We take no jot of glory
from the brave boys who fought
