A civil war veteran has received
notice that bis pousioa of S12 a
mouth for genoral disability, has
Jjeon cancelled because he went
into tho war with Spain. The
man volunteered at tho opouing of
the war and was rojooted. He
finally got placed n? a mule driver,

havo any aocidonts that will allow
putting in a now pension claim.
Senator Butler, who proposed
that tho United States pension

very promptly called down by the
leading Confederate Veterans As
sociation .of Now York city. This
incident shows principally what a
small appreciation Butlor has of
tho American spirit that leads
mon to fight for a cause they bo
lievo just. The Southerners
lost, but thoy have no apologies
to make or spooial favors to ask
for tho past. No ono asks them
for apologies. The sontimont of
tho day is to forget the past, let it
rost, aud combine national forces
bpbind tho reunited country at
was dono during tho lato war. It
is useless to attempt to convince
the Southornors who fought in
tho civil war that, thoir cause was
wrong. It is equally useless to
attompt to convince tho North
erner men that their opponents
deserve pensions. To revive those
points simply Btirs up old feelings
which both aides are now willing
to bury out of sight. An expres
sion of admiration for tho valor
of tho mon who followed tho dic
tates of their conscience is sutuoi-
ciont. ProsidontMoKinley touched
tho popular cord in both tho north
and south whon ho said "Wo
