With all the dignity and circumstance attending a tribute to the
memory of those who die for their country on the field of battle, seven
teen of the nineteen young heroes who lost their lives carrying the Stirs
and Stripes into era Cruz, Mexico, were honored by the Nation, the State
and the city to-day. New York has seen some impressive pageants, but
none more inspiring than the public funeral ol the youthful sailors and
marines whose Ixtdies were brought back home on the cruiser Montana
Three ot the bodies were buried in this city, after private funerals
conducted by the families ol the heroes. Laid (lib atternoon the Montana
started for Boston with the remains of three New England boys who died
in the assault on Vera Cruz. The other bodies were sent to various cities
of the country for interment.
No sooner was the funeral over than the battleship Wyoming be
gan on her final supply Ot stores and ammunition preparatory to start
ing for Vra Cruz at 0 o'clock. Cnly while the memorial services were
under way in the Navy Yard was work halted on the battleship Texas,
which is scheduled to start tor Mexico to-morrow.
President Wikon came over from Washington with delegations from
the Senate and the House and took a prominent part in the funeral
ceremony. Gov, Glynn came down from Albany with delegations from
the Senate and the Assembly. Mayor Mitchel paid a briel and eloquent
tribute to the heme-, who claimed this city a their hnme. And fully a
million people witnessed the passage "t uie funeral cortege from the
Halter), up Hmadway to the Cit Hall, acrOH the Park and through ths
east side to Manhattan bridge and the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
At the concluding service in the Navy Yard President Wilson deliv
ered a remarkable address, couched In the grace! u! English of which he e
has such a complete master. His wa the linal tribute of a series of trib
utes, beginning at the Battery and running through ap-J .oss the busiest
part of the busiest city ot the country.
The estimate of a million persons who ceased for a time their activ
ities in life to honor the boys o( the nav) and the marines is reasonable.
For not only were the sidewalks jammed along the line of the funeral
march, but the skyscrapers, the tenement houses and the factories and
sweatshops furnished their myriads ol spectators and sympathizers.
A tew weeks ago those seventeen boys in blue moved among the
people that mourned them ("-day. They were just plain sailors and
, marines then jaunty lads, swinging along In the crowds with the good
'humored tolerance held by the fighting man tor the prosaic garb of
The boys came back to-day in wooden caskets draped with flags.
They moved up Br idway, across ( ;ity Hall Park and so on to the Navy
Yard. They were the direct occasion for a wonderful exhibition of pop- -ular
feeling tor those who die in battle,
Attending them were hundreds ol other boys in blue, straight,
bronzed, lithe fellows, clear eyed and resolute.
Perhaps few In the croud.- indered how many of these would
come home frmu the tropics ,i the eventeen came home on the Mon
tana, to be buried with all the h n irs t gi itefu country can show.
