MAJOR WILLIAM WARNER. CHAM
PION OP THE RIGHTS OF MAN.
Among the sterling qualities consti
tuting the make-up of MaJ. Win. War
ner Is one In which the colored man Is
vitally Interested, namely "The rights
of man." Now and then Is recalled
the very eloquent plew which the Major
made in the Interest of the colored race
In his address before the Grand Army
encampment at Detroit. In part ho
said: "To-day the Grand Army of tho
State of Missouri Is an organization
for Its age, second t6 hone of the de
partments of the Grand Army of the
Republic. We inarch there with out
colored posts In that state. When
these black men or white men or what
ever color or nationality they may
have been shouldered the musket In
the defence of the I'nion, It was not
a question of etiquette. It was a ques
tion of patriotism and loyalty. Irt mo
say to my brave comrades of the south
that are enduring insult because of the
colored posts, that during the fioroo
stfugglo from IStil to lSt;r. If you lay
wounded. If you were surrounded by
the enemy as thick as a swarm of
bees, at any moment you were liable to
see a black favo crawling up to you
and when he came you knew he was
your friend. Yes, tho color of his
skin was his shibboleth and his pass
word to loyalty. He went to the field
and fought for the flag of the country,
a flag that never" tip to that time bad
protected him In anything but bond
age. It has been my determination to
recognize as a comrade the equal
rights of every man no matter what
his color or nationality provided he
lias two qualifications: Service and
an honorable discharge. Therein may
be seen that In the very nature of this
grand old hero lay that deep sense of
justice and fairness characteristic only
of men who believe In the brotherhood
of man and the fartherhood of God.
