SCENES 15 THE VARIOUS CEMETERIES
There is much that will remain unwritten
about Memorial Day. The Dispatch
and'other journals will record the general
events of the day. It is comparatively easy
to describe the processions or veterans, re
Dort the orations delivered in the various
" 'cemeteries, and tell of the fragrant heaps'of
flowers and starry stacks of flags laid upon
the graves of iallcn heroes. That all forms
the pomp and show of the day.
Bat where is the eye that was able to see
into the heart of the mothers of those
slaughtered braves and coldly report back
tba dimensions of re-opened wounds?
"Where was the pen cruel enough to pene
trate the sacred feelings of grief which many
a widow's sad memories called up? How
many white-haired fathers retired last night
with the same aching void which the mes
sage of death caused in war times? Lost
sons, lost husbands, lost fathers their
faces all vividly repictured once a year
on . .Memorial Say. To some the
awakened visions brought anguish, to
others they were like the echo of pain. To
tenderly veil all such feelings was the act
ofcharity. The real mission of the day

,fln every respect yesterday's celebration
"was a success. All the ceremonies and pa--"rades
in the city were over by noon, con
jsequently the rain of the latter part of the
day did not interfere with the programmes.
The Grand Army of the Republic never
managed the anair better. The veterans,
still iewer and fewer, looked brighter, hap
pier and more majestic than they did last
year. Too much credit cannot be given the
Many thousands assembled in the Alle
gheny Cemetery, where the principal cere
monies of the day were held. The line of
parade was iormedin Lawrenceville. At
the cemetery Mrs. J. Sharpe McDonald,
Mis. J. H. Harrison and Messrs. Alexander
and Horner sang the beautiful song, "Tent
ing on the Old Camp Ground." Then fol
lowed, the decoration of the graves according
to the Grand Army formula.
Rev. T. J. Riley delivered the oration.
Among other things he said:
My countrymen, what does this gathering at
this honr mean T Yoc come with opening rose
and budding flower to place upon the green
mounds where dust now lies. It means a world
of memories, a world of heroic deeds; calls
back a world of sorrows, replenishing the ocean
of tears. And yet we feel certain that ours did
not die in vain. But few men of to-day know
what it is to off er their lives on the country's

pain and suffering, until In a hopeless, helpless

why we are here with uncovered heads and
The choir then sang "Kestj Soldier,
Best," which concluded the service.
TEIVATB DALZELL'S OBATIOlf.
Another large audience gathered in the
TJniondale Cemetery, Allegheny, where the
programme as published in The DISPATCH
ojpsterday was carried out in detail. Hon.
JlbPrivate) Dalcell, of Caldwell, Ohio,
wall the orator of the day, and he spoke as
For this opportunity of speaking in my native
city I am profoundly thankful to the committee
at whose summons I appear. It is an oppor
tunity of responsibility and honor beyond my
powerto adequately meet asitsbonldbe met.
This day of flowers and tears and sad recollec
tions, the day of glory to the dead who gave
the last full measure of their devotion that the
government of the people, and by the people,
might not perish from the earth, demands the
highest genius and tendcrest heart and the
most eloquent tongue to do its sacred cere
monies fitting honor. Never but once in the
history of the day we celebrate, never but
once have all the high and solemn demands of
the occasion been fully met, and that Vas five
years before Logan's formal and official
designation of the day a Memorial Day, when
Abraham Lincoln on the bloody sod of Gettys
burg roe amid its patriot graves, tall, solemn
and majestic, and on that mount of sacrifice
uttered the speech which Is one of the few
speeches that cannot die.
Nothing so affects mankind as the untimely
death of brave young men. But, alas, how
changed is the scene when their old comrades
who survived them are called to go. I fear too
often the world is clad to see them go. I some
times think the old-soldier has stayed longer
than he is wanted, and outlived the love and
gratitude of the people.
THE PENSION QUESTION.'
-"WTien Ellsworth fell, his bleeding body was
gently carried into the White House and lay in
state In the East Boom with Abraham Lincoln
as chief mourner, until a few days later It was
escorted to his old home at Mechanlcsville, N.
Y., and buried with all the honors of war.
Contrast this now with a funeral at the poor
house or Soldiers' Home. During the war, be
fore our boys had the chalice of martyrdom
pressed to their beautiful lips, how the nation
delighted to honor them everywhere. There
was no growling then because of the pension
list. Nobodvthen was mean enongh to ask If
they "wanted the whole earth,' as they marched
away to fight and die for their country. The
people promised them pensions and bounties if
they lived and praise forever If they died. The
latter debt is so easy to pay a few flowers, a
few songs, a lew words, that the nationjs Keep
ing that part of the promise. It is easier to
deal out flowers to the dead than flour to the
living. Our gratitude to the dead is best shown
by doing our whole duty to the living-
"If this be laurels for my brow,
Let me have them now
"Whilst I am alive to wear them."
Be silent In the presence of their graves, ye
miserable demagogues, who object that it will
take too much money to pension us all. Be
gone, profane these hallowed precincts no
longer. Your presence is a pestilence. Be
silent above tbegraves,ye grasping millionaires,
who mounted to wealth and power on the
shoulders of our dead boys in blue, and who
isnea tneir Diooa to save your own. e silent.
lest God smite you with a curse, when we de
mand the repeal of the rascally and dishonest
limitation on the arrears bill. For very shame
cover your heads and begone, ye grasping,
mean and miserly pack of cowards and blood
suckers, who made all your wealth out of the
war and now have the brazen effrontery to
prate about the money it will take to pay the
debt you owe us. Our pensions are as sacred
as yonr bonds, and by the eternal i you re
pudiate our pensions we will repudiate your
r AS INCIDENT RECALLED.
It Is a singular fact that the first memorial
address, and the model of all yet ever delivered
above the graves of our heroic dead, was de
livered on the greatest battlefield of the war
by a civilian and not by a soldier. This seems
to me suggestive f the duty of the people for
all time to come. N o greater mistake can be
mad than that this day belongs exclusively to
the Grand Army of the Republic. It is of much
broader and grander significance. It belongs
to the nation. The Grand Army of the Re
public is swiftly passing to the grave. In a
few years more we shall all rest in the dust.
And when we are cone then the pious task we
now perform will be taken up by the whole
patriotic people of the United States.
At the conclusion of Private Dalzell's ad
dress the people sang "America" and were
dismissed. Jn the atternoon Post 88 went
to Bewickley to take part in the exercises
In the "East End the parade of McPherson
Post 117 was rather smalL A dispute arose
about the right of line. Captain Tim's Com
pany F, Fourteenth Hegiment, claimed the
place, as did also the "Washington Infantry.
Captain Shannon soon settled the trouble
by giving the post of honor to Company I".
At the Homewood Cemetery the programme
was carried out, and the graves of the
soldiers were decorated According to the
' usual 'formulas. Owing to the illness of
Colonel "W. H. Denniston, his brother,
Major Joseph Denniston, read his oration,
"Dolores." In it occurred these words:
This annual ceremony Is a tribute which
speaks more positively, more eloquently than
the bronze and marble shafts which have been
erected all over our Union. They,Jtis true,
speak well and nobly, and show no stinted
purses, no sound of false economy in their
honor and praises of loyalty. Praise and grati
tude are lavishly exemplified therein and
thereon; but these ceremonies with -national
songs and hymns of praise and laudations and
flowers will be continued by generations yet
unborn "will serve to keep the memories
green" of the patriotic dead, when marble and
granite and bronze will have worn away and
crumbled to dust.
Soon our turn will come; soon we will be
mustered into the great grand army beyond.
May those who remain -preserve this custom
unto the end, and when our time comes, aye,
when the last of the old veterans has been laid
to rest, when for us there will be no more roll

flowers above us.
ON THE SOUTHSIDE
ft large procession of old soldiers and citi
zens was formed. They marched to the
cemetery, where the graves of the sleeping
boys were sprinkled, with flowers and orna
mented with flags. The choir sang, "We
Will Deck their Graves with Flowers," and
the Select Knights band played a dirge.
Then Judge Collier delivered the oration.
This is an abstract:
We meet for no empty show or useless
parade, but to testify from full and overflowing
Hearts that the remembrance of their sacrifices
has not grown dim with passing years. Stand
ing by their resting places with bowed head
we can tecall the unselfish devotion of the
men who fell that liberty might live, and that
the Government bequeathed as a heritage
by our patriot fathers might not perish from
We are not here to glory In the victories of
the past, nor to stir up bot blood by the recital
of onr comrades' valor. Wo have buried the
animosity and hate engendered by the war. and
we desire to forget all, save the good in the
past, while we renew our inflexible purpose to
maintain the Government saved by the devo
tion of our comrades.
Here is the fitting place to call to mind the
men who with us stood guard ovnr the nation;
to think of the charge come comrades died in
renellini- some terrible leaden shower that
smote him by our side; some prison pen where
dying he still prayed for God's fair land; and to
show that the love of Union, and liberty was
cot laid aside when the battle flags were furled
and the sword laid by to rust.
AT TKOY HILL.
At the conclusion of the services at the
Hampton Monument, in .East Park, Alle
gheny, Post 88 and John L Kevin Camp,
Sons of Veterans, proceeded to Troy Hill.
After the reading of the general orders and
selections by Post 88 choir came the address
byBev. W. W. Cowl. He said:
We are still able still sufficient for the en
joyment of all the privileges and for the per
formance of all the duties of the Memorial
Day of our order. As we have come, for two
decades and a half, to the churchyards and
cemeteries where our deceased comrades are
sepulchered, that we might cover their lonely
resting place with flowers, and so voice our
tender regard for their memory, so, on this
year of onr Lord 1SS9, do we again come. Still
able for all its obligations do we come, with
flowers ana evergreens in our hands sufficient
for the graves of all our departed comrades,
and in such numbers, and with so much of
vigor still remaining, that we can still pass on
our loving errands, from one grave to another
and from one cemetery to another, until the
lowly tomb of every departed soldier has been
fittingly marked and tenderly honored.
In the beginning the "dead constituted the
picket line of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic; the time is coming and coming upon the
tripping and winged feet of every movement,
ana every experience, when this order shall be
reversed when the "living" shall stand as
sentinels, and as pickets, about the sleeping
andconntlessbosts of our dead: and even when
this decimated picket line shall be found
eagerly waiting for the summons that will
permit them to lie down side by side with
the tired and sleeping hosts of the Grand
SERVICES IN GENERAL.
There was a general decoration of graves
at Voeghtley's, St, Philimoy's, Smithfield
Street, Hebrew, Welterhausen'a and Lons

and 128 those in Hyfdale, a joint detail
being sent to Bellevue Cemetery.
The exercises at Sewickley in the after

No. 88, of Allegheny. 'Bev. J M. Bcottdet;
livered the oration.
The Charles K. Bright Post, of Verona,
also observed the day. The ceremonies

The Little Contingencies Arising From
"Every day we have a hundred people at
least rnnning in to see what's the matter
with their umbrellas," said Mr. Tim to a Dis
patch man last evening.
"An umbrella, to many people, is as essential
as the clothes they wear and when anv little

the owner of a $15 protector from pluvius will

most trouble we have is with the snap spring-.
There have been so many innovations in the
"patent spring" line that the public is at a loss
to Enow how to keep op their umbrellas. That
is the reason we have so many calls from peo
ple to ascertain why a fine article is all wrong.
The dudes don't carry, usually, a fine one, but
the people who purchase jewelry store goods
with expensive and gaudy handles-tbey come
to us for repairs, because of the 120 or 525 ex

case the springs, so stylish, etc., are weak, and
there is none to compare with the common-cvery-day-snap
which is used upon a gingham or
cotton umbrella. The only difference In price
is the amount of work which is put upon

A SHOEMAKER'S WAIL.
An Old-Timer Says the Machines Have
Rained His Baskets Yeans Sfen No
Longer Lcura the Trade.
"The general introduction and successful
operation of machines in shoe factories has
driven me out of the business," wailed one
of the oldest shoemakers of the city to a
Dispatch reporter. "For several years
past the old shoemakers have gradually
been drifting out ol the business, and I am
not going to stick to the last any longer.
"I have been in the business here on
Fifth avenue for over 25 years. I am still
making shoes for a -number of prominent
citizens, and they are willing to pay my
price, but the majority of people can get a
machine-made shoe for one-fourth what it
wonld cost me to make it I cannot afford
to make a respectable pair of shoes for less
than (10 50 or $11, and very few people
nowadays pay as much as that for their foot
gear. The labor on them alone is worth
?3 50. For the latter sum you can get a
good machine-made shoe that satisfies
people about as well as the hand-made

shoe shops of this city, nobody ever thought
it would displace the old mechanics, who
spent years learning their business; but it
"You never hear of a young man nowa
days going into a shoemaker's shop to learn
the trade. It is a trade that has dropped
almost entirely ont of sight, and there is
nobody left now but 'cobblers.' All the
good mechanics have gone out of the busi

"There is no help for it, though. We
cannot impede the steps of progress, and
the only thing left for us to do is to 'git up
"There are few people that buy these cheap
shoes, though, who know what -they are
made of. I have seen a pair of shoes sold
for less money than I conld pnt a half-sole
on for. The uppers of some of them are
made of heavy muslin on drilling, and are
a good imitation of morocco. The soles and
filling are made of board leather, which is a
dried pulp of scraps and ends of leather.

Memorial Day decorating the graves of
fallen comrades, or taking-part in the cere'

about the long-time building. He was seen
about 2 o'clock, gazing in silent rapture at

Services Held in All the Catholic Churches
In the Two Cities.
Yesterday being Ascension Day and a
holy day of obligation, services the same
as those on Sunday were held in all the
Catholic churches throughout the city. It
is called Ascension Day because upon this
day the Lord made his ascent into heaven,
40 days after the resurrection, or Easter
Sunday. This is the first time it has fallen
upon Memorial Day for a number of years.
SALOON KEEPERS OBJECT TO THE TAX.
They Complain of the Speak Easlei Who

Assessor frank Case is having a great
amount of amusement with the saloon
keepers who are requested to par their busi

when they appear at the office.
Mr. Case generally asks them what their
receipts amounted to the past week, and
they generally pay up without further
trouble. Some of the saloon keepers com
plain of the "speak easies," who are not
