win.b hat rejHwril with prido upiiu it*
breast.Out of tne awful dVpth* the voice^ot Uiystic augury waa heard. It warned^the prieaU aud people that only the aacri-^ne.it its choicest spirits, of its noblest m^n^hood couid save the city of doom. Obed^^ient to the dreadful summon*. Curtius, the^citi/.-n soldier and patriot, leaped into the^Kait He telt that there could be no more^acceptable sacrifice thau that ot^the patriot tor his country: than^that ot the man for bis teilow men^that he^coul.1 die no nobler death than to die tor^his city, his kindred and his boms. The^earUi closed over him and assumed its an^^cient and immovable solidity. Above him^rose the nUtty of the city that he bad re^dt-euied with his lite, lier arms brought^the epoil of all the world with which to^d' c*.rat^- the grandest ..t graves, tiie grave^of the aelt buriedcttiz -u. The gitted hands^ot art erected the m.-st gorgeous palaces^ai.d the loftiest temples above, hi* bones.^Sculpture and pani'iu^ ad ^rned them with^all tlie ornaments they could bestow, and^el 'i ietice and poetry awakened their^echoes with the prais- of the great city^which his sacrifice had saved to be the^mistress and ruler of the world.
Soneyears ago the fair city of human^freedom which had be.-n founded by the^statesmen and soldiers of the war of the^American colonies of (treat Britain for^their itidi p^-ndence ot that power was in^danger similar to th^t which threatened^old ltome. A bloody chasm opened be^tweentho sections of the city and threat^^ened to engulf the structure which had^been founded by Washington and his as^^sociates. The cause was iu th* very con^ditioas of that foundation. The gi nera-^tion that was to suffer for the^original sin was only responsible^by inheritance; but the spirit^ot outraged j i^tice rent the earth and into^the chasm u ^( only one but hundreds of^thousand- b * e and patriotic hearts threw^tbemselvi lil eternal Justice was sat^^isfied. The i.loody chasm was closed: the^ground under the foundations of the city of^liberty became solid and forever fixed. The^work of building up the city goes on, and^will goon until its walls of refuge and^sanctuary embrace an empire wider than^that over which the Roman eagles flew,^and richer with the triumphs of peaceful^industry, achieved under just and equal^conditions, than all the wealth borne by^the chariots of conquering consuls through^the clamorous streets of the imperial city.
Thename and act ot Curtius through all^the history of Rome was an inspir.nu.ri^and an example. The example of the hero^was emulated in a hundred ways which, if^not attended by such supernatural acceg-^sorits. were to the lndu iduais as fatal lu^their conseqtiencea. Through all the sim^^ple and sublime years of the republic this^den turn to the state was a primal faculty^of the citizen. Dnder the emperors it still^maintained itself against inside disaffection^and outside pressure, an J even in the^decline and fall of political grandeur and^the decadence of morals and manhood it^occasionally flashed up with all the splen^^dor of its pristine tires. Koine honored^those who died for Rome. The temple, the^mausoleum, the arch, the statue per^peiuated tlieir memory in every shape^that brick and mitrbie aud bronze could be^builded or moulded by the brains of genius^or it e brawn of labor. Even after exam^^ple had lost the power to inspire^when^the present had no force and the future no^hop.^she waa still a city of monuments to^the past.
Webuild for use and not for r niem-^brance in our times, but we know imw to^honor the memory of those who di d that^the nation m gbt live, and to cherish in the^hearts of younger generations the same de^^votion to the union and the constitution^which may save them in other kinds of^pent. Patriotism is in the religion ot^Auk rica, and Dearly all our holidays are^consecrated to it* expression. We have^made a new one since the close of the war.^This is our monument to the dead: to^our young men who in the Hush of hope^and youth and fair expectancy of love and^happiness and honor, left all behind and^leaped into the gulf to save their country.
Outof the swamps in which their bodies^were trampled, out of the thickets in which^tneir bones were burned, out of the ditch^and the pit in which friend and foe had^hurr edly buried them in crowded rows^from the crimson grass ot stricken fields^and from the shadowy nooks and solitary-^places ot lonely picket lines: from hospi^^tal yards and prison dead-lines, the coun^^try gathered its fallen sons into its own I .^enclosures and under the shadows of the^flag for which they died. Here their mili^^tary order is restored in the gTim argu^^ments of the stones that are set at their^heads and their feet, which mark the ser^^ried columns and ranks of the dead below.^Monument* of stone and brass are reared^only to the few conspicuous chiefs^in^death as ;n life Ihe rank and file share in^the common glory and the general honor.^To them all we have given by law and^proclamation one day in the year^the day^which should be the most perfect day of the^loveliest se tson^to recall their sufferings,^to recount their struggles, to glory in their^victories and to do honor to their memo^^ries. The young spring passing into the^maidenhood of summer, burns the incense^of a nation's gratitude over these poor re^^mains. We bring no works of art. but we^offer the lovliest and sweetest of all the^productions of nature, who is the inspira^tion and model of all art^we bring the^flowers of the forest and the field. These^violets for our sorrow and these roses for^our love and pride, these daises and pansies^for our solace and the lilies for our hope*^of their glorious and eternal reward. With^muffled drum* and solemn notes and draped^banners we invade the quiet of these eter^^nal camps and when challenged by their^sentinels. Fame and Glory, we answer that^we are ^friends^ who come to hang these^wreaths of love and honor upon the ridges^of ^the low green tents, whose curtain nev^^er outward swings.
Butof those who laid down the plough^and the hammer and took up the musket:^who laid aside the pen and the book and^buckled on the sword, many lived to re^^turn to the comfortable homes rhich they^had abandoned for the dreary camp an.l^the unsheltered bivouac. They had^passed through cold and hunger and with^^stood the beat and thirst. They came^back to life and health from fever. The^dusty march n.id not broken them down^nor the struggle through malarial swamps^and muddy lowlands overcome their ener-^swdc had known the horrible help-^of the wounded between the lines:^some the despair of the abandoned and^some the homesickness and the horrors of^the prison, some bad met the alternative^of perishing miserably or surviving un^^happily with shattered systems and lost^vitality. Those who came out^best had lost the best years^of their young manhood. The^opportunities of study, the habits of in^^dustry, the chances to lay the foundations^for useful lives. True, they had seen the^pride and pomp and circumstance of war^had learned its now useless arts and were^perfect in its details. But the arts of peace
hadto he e -vrncd atf^ n, an.l they had to^b -gin at fie f^^ in the nerve coinpetitiori^4 .i e. | hose who began with th- be^^ginning and remained until the end of the^' ^t l:*^l -eeii more actual warfare than^the jjrizzit-d veterans of foreign armies; but^what was this to tfc.-ir advantage now^^The maimed and d sahtrd had pensions:^but the vast mas* bad lo make their way ae^best they could, with but little practical I^sympathy and v-ry tew allowance* for the |^years wnicli Ussy had ioet frosa the ranks^of industry. That, under the circum^^stances, so manv rutde their way to the^front ranks of life is most complimentary^to the metal o( the r iuzen soldier and the^general character of the voiun'eer army.
Th.-graves aba Cemeteries of the war^contain the dust of but a moity of the sol^^di- r .1ea^1 Time's deadly volleys of hours^and years have swept r.ff the survivors.^For a long time they held their ranks well:^but after the passage of a score of year*^tl ey t t-2an to tall a* they did during the^e\. mini years of service. The calling of^the names of the absent and gone at each^annual meeting ot the tirand Army sounds^like the roll call after a battle, except that^the dead are far more scntterrd. The re-^s|M^nse comes back from places that never^knew the sound ot conflict. From distant^continents, from foreign lands, from the^island* of the sea. from the sea itself, come^back the names of those who can no^longer answer for themselves. In^the explorations of the Arctic, in the^tangled thickets of the African continent,^in many an Indian tight upon the plains, in^many a dark glen of the Koeky mountains,^wherever action and duty called them, the^survivors of the war have given their live*^as freely as did those l/ey left upon the^field* of battle. And in justice to most of^them, be it said that wherever they met^their fiual summons, they died in th' line^of duty. Wherever men do that they die^on the field of honor. Wherever our com^^rades lie they are entitled to a soldier's ob-^s-qu es and the memories of this day. In^ail the sleepy old villages 0f the east you^cannot find a quiet gravey ard over which^Mags may not be waved and flower* strewn^m honor of some soldier's dust: and in^theae new graves, dun out here in the^lands unknown at the time of the war, we^ri;nl that there are soldiers' graves and^comrade* gathered here to honor them.
D.iringall the war, as for ages before,^this great river dashed over its rocks and^falls in us own battle of waters, the sound^ot its own dashing* alone ecnoing in the^solitudes, 'inv. xed by the sound of battle^that roiltd aloug the Potomac, the Cumber^laud and the Mississippi. ^,^ n. under the^wall that you have newly raised, we will^ti:.il the graves of comrades who fought^beside Mine distant rivers, that you might^found here a city and a state which should^he part and parcel of the oue great and un^^divided union o' American states, over^which should float, witho'tt one star lost,^the flag that waved aboie the cradles of^your infancy. And so. rou gather baside^this beautiful stream, that we may say^these feeole words of pr^:^^^. and that your^drums and honors ma^ add the notes of a^soldiers requiem to the murmur of waters^and the dashing of the waves.

Livingston,May 30. ^ [Special to the^Independent. ]^ Rain began pouring in Liv^^ingston about 10 o'clock this morning and
Ihas continued with .kv^itl intermis-
'sions all day. The offices of the clerk of^court, judge of probate and county sur-^! veyor in the basement of the court house^; are filled with about three feet of water,^; but the books and papers were removed to^the floor above before they were damaged^The water also entered the cellar under^M.

Washington.May SO.^Altl.ouuh the^weather was dubious this morning the ret-^erans of the late war turned out in good^force to make the annual pilgrimage to the^Arlington soldier's home and other^grounds where the remains of the com-^rsdei rest, and pay a tribute of respect and^affection In the shape of floral otTeriutfS^and suitable ceremonies. There was little^evidence of business activity and the spirit^ot the day was tolerably observed
Theattendance at Arlington cemetery^was unusually large. Mrs. Harrison, Mr.^and Mrs. McKee and Dr. Scot'. Si the white^house, brought a boquet of It ^wer^ which^was placed on lien. Sheridan's grave.^Gen. set otield and staff and Senators^Sawyer aud Mandersou were present. The^first ceremony of the day was at the Sheri^| dan monument. Here the members of the^Grand Army of the Republic, committees^of the Women's Relief Corps and Loyal^Legion Comuiandery ga'hered within^the enclosure around the monument.^The Marine band playejl a dirge, an old^veteran pulled the rope and the flags which^have covered the monument since it waa^put in place tell to the ground, exposing to^view a plain granite shalt ten feet high,^bearing on it* face a bronze bust medallion^ol Gen. Sheridan. The Women'* Relief^corps threw a shower of rose* -around the^base of the monument, and later in the day^the children of Gen Sheridan added their^floral contribution to the heap which kind^hands bad strewn about their father's^grave.
NawYokk. May SO.^Early this morn^^ing it did noi give promise of a fair day, as^the rain fell lightly at intervals; but as the^morning wore on the rain ceased entirely^and the sun at times almost broke through^the clouds. All the public buildings dis^^played flags at half mast, but there was a^meagre display of bunting elsewhere. The^parade started at y o'clock from Fifty-^eighth street. The line of March was^down Fifth avenue to Fourteenth street:^thence to Broadway, around I'nion Square.^At I'nion Square the Lincoln and Wash^^ington statues were beautifully adorned^with flowers. The procession was led by^Gen. O O. Howard with a battalion of^marine*. The parade was reviewed by^Gov. Hill, Vice-Presid-nt Morton and^Mayor Grant. After the parade the mem^ber^ of the Grand Army of the Republic^went to the various cemeteries and dec-^rated th^ graves of the dead.
V.S. Gran: Po*t Grand Army of the Re-^publ.c arranged the memorial services to^^day a* heretofore at lien Grant's tomb in^Riverside park.

Chang Yen Ho Km, the^Chinese plenipotentiary at Washington,^sent a tl iral device bearing his name.^Man ^ tirand Army of the Republic p i.u and^other organizations also sent Moral contri^^butions. On the left side ot the tomb a^platform was erected on which the exer^^cises were held. About S.0UO people sur^^rounded and oc'upied the euclosute|in^front of it. Rev. J. M.

Washington. May SO.^The warlike^dispatches from British Columbia with re^^gard to the expected trouble between the^failed states and Great Britain over the^B-ht.pg sea seal fisheries are generally^dericed by the officials of the navr de^^partment. It is pointed out that no officer^of ra ik sufficiently high to make him ac^^quainted with the English government's^purposes would under any circumstance*^be so foolish as to talk tn the manner^stiUdin a dispatch from Y'ictoria, B.C.^A prominent naval offlner to-day said the^I'nited States bad no reason to apprehend^any difficulty. Great Britain assuredly^would not commit any overt act^of violence in case her sealers were arrest^^ed, without warning this government of it*^intentions. The warning that Great Bri^^tain would by force dispute the sover^eignty of Behring Sea never had been com^^municated to the I'nited state*, and this^alone showed the improbability of the^st ^ry. It might be that the war vessels^named were going to Benring Sea, though^that was by no means certain. Their dut^^ies there, however, would probably con^^sist in nothing more than keeping a watch^on the situation to protect their citizens^from being wantonly ill-used and giving^the sealers good advice. If our vessels at^^tempted anything that was unwarranted,^it might be that the British would feel^called upon to interfere. The I'nited^state* sent vessels to the New^^foundland fisheries each year to^look after American interests and^the liiitish vessels probably had a similar^mission in the Alaskan waters, presuming^they would go there. The United States^naval forces at present available In^Behring *ea consists of the Bear, Thetis^and a revenue cutter. These vessel* are^of no use for actual warfare and are sim^^ply policemen of the sea. The Adams and^Ir. quoi* are at Mare inland and could be^sent to sea at short notice If circumstances^demanded It The Charleston is also at^San Francisco, but it will be sometime be^^fore she will be ready to go into commis^^sion. She has demonstrated, it is said,^that she is an excellent boat, but^has not yet fulfi.led the contract re^^quirements. Eved if these requirements^were waived under stress of emergency, it^would take some time to fit the Charleston^out for service, as has already been stated.^However, naval officers do not think the^situation at all alarming or even threateu-^iag The Behring sea fisheries, they are

StIxji is May- 85.^The Republic's Fort^Worth, Ark., special says: '-y.iite a seusa-^i tion was created here to day by the re-^I marks of Hon. M Keiley, of Kansas,
lento day than ever before in the history who*e *t***b *l ln*^ memorial services fol-
ofthe place and by some old inhabitants^that there was more rain than had ever fal^^len in the territory at one time.
Theprogramme for the memorial exer^^cises was only partially carried out i^owing to the storm. About 2:30 j^o'clock in the afternoon the members '^of Farragut post, dressed in uniform, j
thepost ball to the opera^house, where, after music by the band and^o'her minor exercises, hey listened to the^recitation of a tribute to the unknown dead !^by children r^ presenting the forty-three j^stat. s of the union. This recitation was j^considered by all present a* a very unique !^and effective exercise. The Rev. E. S.^Snyder, of Helena, was then introduced as^the orator ot the day. After refering to I^the scenes of the past, which stirred the^soul of the patriot on these occasions, he^said that our country was a christian re^^public, ^born of the determined will of^God and man.^ That the country was dis- I^covered ty a religious navigator, sent out I^by a religious queen, and had been tne spe- J^cial care of a divine providence from the I^beginning to the present time. He re^^viewed the history of the United states I^showing a familiarity with details as well^as the principal events of the country's his- I^tory. To the Sons of Veterans he said that^in a few ytars the Grand Army of the Re- !^public would be no more He wished them^to remember at what fearful cost of trees- i^ure. tilisKi and valuable lives the old flag^had been b-questh- d to them, and that^they should live worthy of the inheri^tance.
Whenthe storm was ever two wagons^loaded with flowers were sent to the cem^^etery to be strewn on the graves of the sol^^diers luried there. Every arrangement^had been made for a complete recognition^of the day. bad not the rain interfered.
DeerLodge. May 30^[Special to the^Independent.]^During the whole of last |^night a strong wind and heavy rain ,^prevailed, leaving the streets in a I^bad condition for the memorial aersices^to-day and preventing any of the civic^orders from turning out except the Grand^Army of the Republic and the Knights of^Pythias. The sun came out clear this^i morning, however. At lOo'elock a proces- I^, sion formed on Main street and marched to^the grave yard in the following order:^Deer Lodge silver band. Knights of Pytn-^i iae. Grand Army nf the Republic, G. H^i Thomas Post, and citizens In wagons, bug-^' giee. horseback and on foot The pro- 1^cession had only just reached the grave^aid when a terrific rain storm came np^to
lowedthat of the orator of the day. He^| said in part: The state of Arkansas is in^j disrepute. Comrades B-nj^min and Clay^^ton were assassinated in this state because^they were loyai to the Hag of their country.^The eyes of the entire country are upon^Arkansas.' He said his state legislature^has passed resolutions denounc ng Ar^kansas and calling upon the national^government to protect its people, even^if it had to put it under^martial law. and then continued: ^1 am a^congressman and. comrades, I w:ll see that^you are protected, if my influence and^power can effect it, even if we have to re^^sort t.. martial law.^ The indignation and^contempt of the citizens at this remarkable^speech of Kelly culminated in a large but^spontaneous meeting at the court house at^4 p. m. It was composed of both republi^^cans and democrats and was called by a^committee composed of two republicans and '^^one democrat, two of whom were ]^federal soldiers and members of the Grand 1^Army of the Republic. J. P. Grarly, a re- ;^publican and an ex-federal soldier, and a^member of the Grand Army of the Repub- '^lie was called to the chair. The following^resolution was unanimously adopted: ^Re-^solved. That this meeting, composed of -^democrats and republicans, denounce the^speech of Mr. Kelly as not only false, but j^upon such a sacred rs^casion in such taste '^as could, it is to be hoped, emanate from^no part of the civilized country except^from the state whose legislature made^such a disgraceful show of itaelf in tbe res I^olution of which Kelly boasted so largely^to dav.

Chicaso,May SO ^The police to-day^have been making active search for Dr.^Cronln's clothes and medicine case, and the^carpet which was bought and laid on tbe^Carlson cottage floor. The officers to-day^searched the bouse of Ice man Sullivan^very thoroughly, but without av il. Tbe^search will be continued, however, and^will include the catch basins and space*^under tbe sidewalk in the vicinity of tte^bouse and also near where the murder i^Committed.
TheDaily News this evening^a conversation with a detective^name is not given, who has^watching the case closely. He^thinks the Uiree men in jail^know all about the murder aud^could give the police the right clues, but^they can never be couvicted on the evi^^dence now in tbe possession of the states^attorney. One of them must squeal, and^ue argues that it lies between Sullivan and^Woodruff to do this. The detective tliinks^Coughliu made th- arrangements for tbe^murder. To Sullivan was intrusted tbe^work of fixing up the coutract with Cronin.^The hiring of all the rigs Coughlin attend^^ed to himselt. He first met Woodruff whom^be knew to be a crook, and always ready^for any shady transaction. He did not^confide anything to him, merely telling him^he wanted some work doue and then made^the dicker with Denan for the rig which his^friend was to call tor. The men known as tbe^Williams brothers did all their own work,^the hiring of the cottage and the buying ot^the furniture. The detective thinks that^although thete were perhaps twenty per^^sons in the conspiracy, only two or three^besides tbe actual murderers knew that^Ciouin's life was to be taken.
Willtbe murderers ever be brought to^justice *.*'' asked tbe reporter.
**1think the chances are five to one^against the police. With the evidence thus^far obtained there can he no convictions.^It is not at all likely that the men who^committed the crime itself are in Chicago^or even in the couutry. They had ample^time to get out of the^country. 1 have another theory,^not as tenable as tbe first one.^It may have been there waa no society^conspiracy at all. It is possible that Sulli^^van got some woman into trouble and Cro^^nin became acquainted with the facta,^which were damaging to the ice man. Tbe^latter, knowing the strict moral and relig^^ious principles of the doctor, and urged on^by tear that the physician would inform^the authorities, made the contract with^him that lured the doctor to bis death. I^cannot but think Woodruff's story about a^woman has some foundation in fact^ The^reporter alter wards talked with Chief Hub^^bard about this theory. ^Ves,^ admitted^Hubbard, ^we have a man working ou that^feature ot the murder. Sullivan is a bach^^elor and it is not unlikely be may have^gotten some woman into trouble. What^connection this may have with the murder^we do noi know. 1 don't place much re^^liance in the theory.
Itis rumored that the police tn their fur^^ther search to-day of the cottage in which^Dr. Cronin murdered, found a pick and^other ice tools ptesuiued to have Keen tbu^property of P. O. Sullivan, tbe ice dealer.^The authorities are reticent on the result of^to-day's investigation aud refuse to deny or^affirm this rumor. The theory is advaucou^that It was with blows from these instru^^ments that Dr. Cronin was foully mur^^dered. When it is remembered that the^notable discovery of the post mortem ex^^amination was that the skull was in no^place fractured, this conjecture does not^appear reasonable. The tools to day dis^^covered, it is understood, had l^een hidden^partly unde ground and in a rubbish heap^in an oulrooui or shed adjoiuiug tbe cot^^tage. The greatt st importance is attached^to this report, as it is cams rued intocro *n-^ing evideuce of ice deal, r Sullivan's com^^plicity in the murder.
Arumor was circulated early in the^afternoon that tbe police n*d succeeded in^finding the clothes ol Dr Cronin. This^appears to have beeu uoi without authen^^ticity. Little credence was first given to^Ibis report, it being so mncn like many^other rumors winch have appeared with^^out definite origin; but Lieut. Ross is au^^thority for the statement that Cronin'a^clothes were really found this afternoon^and recoguiz -d a* the property of tbe mur^^dered man. I tie inference is drawn that^tbey were found in or around Sullivan's^house, as a squad of detectives are known^to have devoted nearly all of today In^searching the premises of the ice dealer.^The officer in charge of the squad in re^s-^onse to cssual inqairies, stated that^no discoveries have been made, but^Chief Hubbard when confronted with tbe^later report to-night refused to either af^^firm or deny the statement that the mur^^dered man's apparel had been found. Asthe^authorities have heretofore lost no time in^denouncing unfounded rumors the conclu^^sion is that to-day has at least wi to eased^tha disclosure of one valuable clue to the^mystery that surround* the fate of the^murdered doctor.
Ari. tit., t al... was made to-night The^police think the man may be the one who^drove the white-horse rig which carried^Dr. Cronin to his death. The arrest was^made in a lodging house, the records of^which show that on the night of tbe mur^^der the man did not put In an appearance^until after midnight. He nas expressed^the tear a number of times since that be^would get into trouble in the Cronin mat^^ter and tried to persuade tbe clerk to^change the record. He is known only by^the name of ^Mack.
Thestatement will be printed to-morrow^that Alexander Sullivan has engaged A. S.^Trude as counsel, and that within the last^thr. e days the two have bad frequent con^^sultations. A reporter called on Mr. Trude^this evening and asked him about the mat^^ter. ^Oh. I have known Alex aince he^was a reporter,^ sa d Trude, ^aDd 1 have^been consulted by him. He knows nothing^about tbi* Cronin affair. There is a ques^t on of tail pulling. Y'ou see, every Irish^^man is trying to twist the British lion's^tail, and in their ardor they get jealous and^jump on each other. In the Pniladelpbia^convention the greatest Irish intellect*^clashed. Alexander Sullivan came out on^top, electing Henry Sheridan delegate.^This made Sullivan the mark for the jeal^^ousy of every prominent Irishman who did^not belong to Lis party. W. J. Hynes, of^Chicago, used to be a friend of Sullivan,^but the Pniladelpbia victory cost Sullivan^this friendship This time is seized^upon by his enemies to ruin him, but there^will be a reaction.
Intalking of tbe alleged division of funds^of the Clan-na Gael, or United Brother^^hood, Mr. Trude said: ^1 bat has been ex^^plained a d^ zen times, and in five minute*^any impartial man can understand that^Mr. Sullivan has been as clear from misdo^^ing as a sunbeam.^ Mr. Sullivan, when^seen by a reporter, said he had not formal^^ly retained Mr. Trude, but had counselled^with him as a friend.
