The tribute paid to General Robert
E. Lee by President Andrews, of Biown

In ibe Union army, and whose eulogy
of the great Southern leader has stirred
up p.otcsts from Grand Army organi?
zations, was as> follows:
"He (Lee) had the faith of the cru?
sader; his letters would make a guide
to holiness. He vtf'a:-" always a sold.er?
never impure in thought or act, never
profane or obscene. He did not touch
the cup as did Grant, Hooker or Phil
Sheridan, and when he lost a light It
was never .said of him that the defeat

from the Rappahannock to James
River, never trapped 'and never caught

any such masterful generalship ns thip
hero showed, holding that slim gray
line, half starved, with no prospect of
additions, ami lighting when bis army
was tco hungry to stand and the rifles
were only useful as clu'oe. His cour
ige .vis sublime. He was as great
us Gustavus Adolphus or Napoleon, or
Wellington, or Von Moltke. His uauec
was1 i";t the lost cause so much as I?
.-oppose 1. All that was good in Ills
cause has been grafted Into our laws
and our Coustitulion.
"The doctrine of State's rights as now
Interpreted 'by the upreme Court, is Iii
exact accordance with his claims on
the point. General Le? lost at Gettys?

front. Heretofore he liad been but half
kindly regarded but when lie took com?

and ragged army he wa.-> hailed as a"
