At the borough building appropriate
exercises were held. Burgess Langan
delivered an eloquent and Inspiring
address. He was followed by Attorney
C. A. Battenburg, wlio address In part
was as follows:
Memorial Day Is a holiday much dif
ferent from any of our holidays. It
was not Intended to be a day of Jolli
fication and mirth; It was not set apart
as a day for pleasure and- sport; this
should be a day of reverent respect and
deep solemnity; It ought to be a day
which would call forth our patriotic
Impulses as no other holiday does. It
should be to us all that the meaning
of tho word holiday Implies It should
be a holy day. This Is a day dedicated
to tho memory of our Illustrious dead.
How, then, can we properly observe
this day? Surely, not by Indulging In
sport and pleasure. Tho founders of
Memorial Dav Intended a deep signifi
cance to be conveyed by the celebration
of this day. It was Intended to awak
en a deep patriotism and a feeling of
thankfulness In the hearts of our citi
zen's and particularly in the hearts of
the youth of our land. And can we do
better than to honor and revere the
memory of the men who sacrificed so
much for us? - A spirit of gratitude
should prompt us in our observance of
this day. And though a feeling of sad
ness pervades this occasion, our sor
row Is calmed by the assurance that
their sufferings have conferred on us
tho blessings of a free country; that
their sacrifices has secured to us all
that we today enjoy as citizens of the
United States of America.
It Is not a new or strange thing we
are doing here today. Throughout all
time; In every nation, savage and re
fined, the memory of the patriotic dead
has been fondly cherished. Pyramids
were built for the tombs of kings; tri
umphal arche3 preserved the fame of
warrior chiefs. Ancient Athens found
ed her Ceramlcas, the most beautiful
of all cemeteries, and crowded Its mag
nlfloent and hallowed graves with al
ters and temples, fountains and flow
ers, shrines and monuments for those
who died in her defense. Republican
Rome consecrated her Campus Mar
tlus, where her most distinguished sol
diers were adjudged worthy of repose.
France has her Hotel des Invalldes,
with her great Napoleon sleeping be
neath Its dome. England her St. Paul
and her Westminster Abbey for her
Wellington, her Nelson and her Na
plers. In the past the trlbuto of the
nation's sorrow has Idolized the chief
tain alone; monuments have been
raised only to the prince and the noble.
Our republic and its people recognize
the merit of the private soldier ns well
as tho merit of tho great and brave who
commands him. And we cannot, If wo
would, we would not If we could, forget
tho uncrowned and unsune hero of the
knapsack and the musket. History
furnishes no parallel to the gallantry'
of our citizen soldiery, the courage and
grit of the American volunteer. The
perils and hardships ol war wero his.
The nation placed her life In his hands;
and on an hundred bloody bnttleflelds
he proved himself sublimely worthy
of tho trust. It was not our rulers who
have made this country great they
aro only our servants but tho people
themselves who each In their day and
generation, well and faithfully per
formed their allotted task.
Ab the daya and years pass by, I
believe the veteran la becoming moro
and more dear to the hearts of tho peo
ple. Generations yet unborn will make
offerings at tho soldiers' shrine; and
the fondest boast of the soldiers' pos
terity will be thnt un ancestor carried
n musket to preserve the integrity of
tho Union, that Americans might still
exclaim proudly, "Liberty and Union,
now and forever, one and Inseparable."
In those dark and troublesome days,
when our country was threatened with
ruin and disruption, every man yea,
and every woman within Its borders,
who was possessed of a spark of pa
triotism, waa moved to a Bcnso of his or
herresponslbllltynnd duty to that same
country. It made no dlffcicnce who he
was or what he was, who his ancestors
had been, or what his station In life
was; what his creed or color was. All
that was demanded and expected of
him was patriotism. And the creed of
thoso men might be summed up In tho
sentence: "We believe our country
good enough to live for; to die for."
They met on tho level of citizenship
And as we assmble here today to take
part In this service of love, we do not
nsk who or what they were; all that
wo want to know Is: Were they pa
triots; were they our country's de
fenders In times of danger? And It Is
but fitting and proper that such a Ber
.vlce as this should not be confined or
excluded to any one class of people.
This day 1 only observed properly
when all our country's cltzens enter
Into Its celebration. And we, as the
citizens of the United States, should
be Jusr ns unanimous In our expres
sions of gratitude and praise for their
services, and Just as united In the per
formance of the rites of this day as the
soldiers of our country were when It
was threatened with war, and gave
their services in Its defense. And I
think that the unanimity which the
people of Archbald have entered upon
this day's services should be a matter
of pride to our wholo people, and a
source of gratllicatlon and pleasure to
the old soldier.
But you who represent what was at
one time, Indeed, a Grand Army, and
who today aro but a remnant of that
noblo band, what shall I say to you
upon this occasion. I feel that no
tongue can utter, no pen can write, no
imagination can fathom the myriad
emotions that All your breasts today;
emotions tender in their sternness, and
pure In their exultation; emotions ten
der In their remembrance of the noble
boys who stood at your sides in trying
times, who upon bloody fields of battle
over a quarter of a century ago, gave
up tlielr lives, that liberty might tri
umph and the Union be preserved; ex
ultant because those lives were not In
vain, and that from out those fields
of battle whose earth was enriched by
tho blood of your comrades, there has
grown up such a sentiment, such a
love, such a regard, such a loyalty, as

But when they are gone shall we
prove ourselves worthy of the trust
which they committed! to our safe
keeping; shall we prove ourselves true
sons of worthy sires? Let us remem
ber that although our country at pres
ent Is not in danger of being divided,
that here are Just as mighty foes to
meet; that here are dangers Just as
menacing to the peace and prosperity
of our blessed land. Let us strive to
serve with honor our country's present
demands. Let us each constitute our
selves a guardian of the purity of our
country. Time forbids my dwelling on
the evils of our time; but we have
vice, Immorality, corruption, bribery,
Intemperance and1 sin in all Its guises
about us on every hand. Let us then
realize the necessity of true soldiery in
times of peace. Let us endeavor to
