MAKE A FAVORABLE REPORT
McCawley's Confirmation as Captain
of Marines Recommended.
Argument of Senator and JE-Secre-tary
of tbe Nnyy Chandler in Op
position Had No "Weight.
Despite the opposition which Senator
Chandler is making to the confirmation
of Charles L. McCawley, nominated to be
quartermaster In the Marlue Corps with
the rank of captain, It looks very much as
if he would be confirmed. The committee
ordered a favorable report to be made
at its meeting yesterday morning
McCawley was nominated from civil life
and ex-Secretary of the Navy Chandler
held tlmt under the law the appointment
Mi. Chandler made an elaborate argu
ment belore the committee. In which lie
fallowed tt.ufc prior to 1882 civilians could
be appointed to lill vacancies In the marine
corps of the Navy, but under that law no
appointee could go. in over twenty-five
yeais of age. Before- 1882 all the grad
uates of the Naval Academy were taken
into the line of the Navy. Civilians could
be appointed as paymasters andengineers
UiiiW this system cxperieucs showed, said
Mr. Chiuidier, that the number of Naval
officer was becoming too large. So by
the uct of 18S2 it wus piovided that
from graduates of the Naval Academy ror
each year appolntnicuth should be made
to 1 ill all vacancies happening during the
year in the lower grades of the line and
engineer corps or the Navy and the
marine corps; and that tlni surplus grad
uates should be turned out Into private
lire. As the Army and Navy are each
dHided Into the line and staff, so, said
Mr. Chandler, is divided In the same way
thnt aim of the sn?ice known as tne
Duung the fifteen yearsslnce 1882, suld
Mr. Chandler, no civilian has been ap
pointed into either the line or staff of the
Mariue Coips. The lowest ptaff grade is
thai of captain. When a vacancy lias iuit
pened in that grade It has been filled by
promoting alieutenantlatlie Maiiuu Corns,
and the vacancy thus created has been
filled bj a graduate of the Naval Academy.
Applying this law, which, has remained
on the statute books for fifteen years,
to the case before the committee Mi.
Chandler pointed cut that a vacancy .iow
cxb-ted in the lowest ntaff grads of the
Marine Corps, that of captain and dist
ant quartermaster. He contended that it
could not be filled by appointing a civ
ilian, and that, tco, ove the prescribed
age of twenty-five 3-ears.
The committee, however, thought differ
ently and oidercd a favorable report.

The Salvation Army held a teries of
"bush meeMngs" yesterday, in the woods
bordering the Chevy Chase lake. The Idea
of departing for the time being from the
Ufcual custom of laboring amoug the niaes

with Staff Captain Charles Noble, and
the laige audiences at each of rue three

and the third at 7 o'clock in the evening.
Addresses were made at all these meet

Captain Mrs. BeJe Noble, Capfc. Williams
and Captain Coup.
In Ida n-iuarks Capt. Noble stated that
the three camps now in the city were all
doing a good work and that in one of
them last eveniug there were 700 people,
a larger congregation than that of any
church in the city, he ventured to sa
The Quaker City Band, an organization
composed of youngsters affiliated with the
army, was In attendance at all the meet

It was announced yesterday that at

Picnic ut Congress Heights.
Several Sunday-schools from Washing

yesterday In Wilou Park, Congress Heights.
The grove was their exclusive property

in romping and rolilng.on the green sward
and beneath the shady trees. Addressea
appropriate to the occasion and the au

by Lnfayette'ri Oration of Hon.
Independence Day was recognized and
celebrated by the patriotic Sons of the
Revolution and Sous of the American
Revolution yesterday with un enthusiasm
and heartiness that has rarely been
equaled aud never been surpassed by them
at other similar celebrations.
In order to make their efforts more
effective the two societies united in the
celebration, secured the services of the
white-uniformed Marine Band, with Prof.
Fanclulll at its head, and the Washington
Light Infantry for aa escort.
At 0:30 o'clock these organizations
assembled at Lafayette square, and with
them were representatives from the Society
of Cludnnnti, Daughters of the Revolu
tion, aud the Daughters of the American
Revolution, and pupils from the public
Alter forming in line and headed by
the Maiiue Baud, with the Washington
Light Infantry as an escort, the societies
proceeded to the statue of Audiew Jack
son. The band played "Old Hickory" while
passing the bronze equestrian figure, and
members of Uie sdcleties cheered. From
that point the piocession proceeded to the
statue of Lafayette. In recognition of the
valuable services of the French hero, iu
band played the Marseillaise, and the men
removed their huts. The procession went
down Executive avenue to the Ellipse aud
across It to the Monument Park ami to the
Washington Monument, at the baseot which
a small stund had been erected for the In
vited gueots. speakers and the committee
of arrangements. Policeman Walter S.
Jonen had charge or the police arrange
ments, and kept excellent order. In fmnt
of the stand about 1,000 persons stood in
the shadow of Uie monument, and halt that
number had seats.
The program that had been arranged
could not be carried out In full, owing to
Court of Claims, who had intended to de
liver an address.

The band played 'The Star-Snangled
Banner," t he audience standing, and the In
vocation was by Rev Dr Thomas S. Chiids.
Mr. Parry Btilkley read tlieDecIaiatioii of
Independence In 0 manner which reflec-ed
much credit upon him.self,and then Admiral
Walker in1 reduced Hon. Webter Davis,
Assistant Secretary of the Interior, who de
livered an oration that was exceedingly
well received. He said:
"Among the nations born, greater thau
them all we stand;
More rich in wheat and corn; more blest
by God, our Father's hand;
And none titled nobler than the man who
is but mi American."
And yet at one time the people of other
lands were wont to prophesy that our
Republic was only an experiment, and that
the time would come when it would live
only in history.
But the craft of thestatesman, the learn
ing of the historian, and the wisdom of
the philosopher, have, alike, proven to be
wlthoutfoundation. Talieyrand was wroug;
the Republic is a giaut, indetid, but it is
a giant with brains, boues, brawn, blood
aud muscle; De TocquevMe's philosophy
was in error, for the Republic had power to
sustain itself in the most trying crisis.
And Baron Ma caula's historical research
led l.im astray, for-the Republic still lives,
fresh in eternal youth and as undying as
theeternul principles on which itis founded.
Its sword has always been the enemy of
oppression and wrong wherever found; on
its bright -banner are principles immortal,
andin its hands eternal justice and equality
of rights. Under the magic wand of these
a happy people have lived for more than a
It in ti ue that clouds have appeared at
times -which covered our land with almost
Egyptian darknesa; but ever and anon
through It alltlie-God of our nation has ex
tended His hand to fair Columbia, weeping
in her sorrow, and led her out of the gloom
into the nidiant light of sunny skies. To
day this Republic, with Its recognition of
human rights is the beacon light of cheer
and encouragement to the liberty-loving
people of the whole civilized world. And
they have come herefrom all lands to find
a home where they and their little one3
may sit under their own vine and fig tree
with no one to molest them or make them
afiald; & home where their jouthmay be
ciowned with happiness, and the sunof their
life's evening may go down with the un
molested hope of -a- glorious immortality.
So that now our land is occupied by in
telligent, energetic", thrifty, civilized
mer. and women, whahavefouiidedmnnirold
institutions of learning, built villages and
magnificent citles,-whitened the rivers
and seas with the sails of commerce, con
verted impenetrable forests into culti
vated fields and splendid orchards, ch'thsd
1 he hills with luxuriant vines and filled
the valleys with cdrn aud wine, covered
the sterile plains with beautiful gardens,
and transformed desolate deserts into
fields of bloom, filled with plenty the na
tion's granaries, while the music of reap
ers and mowers, the songs of branny sons
or toil, as they garner in the shcavea
from the harvest fields; murmur of the
loom and shuttle, the roar of the hot
breath of furnaces, the hum and whirr of
countless wheels" and spindles of mills
aud factories planted on the banks of the
livers, the melodies of ringing anvils of
smithies at the forge, the merry laughter of
little children sporting on the Echoolhouae
pIaygroundr all fill the land with the
sweet melody of the songs of industrv
while plenty sits enthroned and crowned,
and sways her Joyous scepter over happy
homes where millionB dwell in peace and
Surely the happiest people In all the
world should be the people of the United
States, for their homes are In the grandest
belt of forest, valley, and plain, which
the world has in it. Oh, let our mines be
opened, let agriculture and horticulture
flourish, and let manufactures, commerce,
ort, science, education, and literature
blossom here and forever bless mankind.
One great dunger today is the tendency
among some to widen the chasm between
capital and labor, to make the "working
man feel that the prosperity of the
capitalist is an injury to himself and to
make the "apitall.it feel that the working
man ia simply u beast of burden. This la
wrong. The prosperity ot one means the
prosperity of both. They should "Work
together Capitalists are necessary, for
without them great enterprises are im
possible, and labor is the creator of all
wealth, and the men who toll are the
true sovereigns where labor is honored
and merit distinguished.
In our cities too many merchants and
bankers do not take enough Interest in
their employes to visit them and note the
manner in which, on their meager"wages.
they caro ror rather and mother aud others
dependent upon them.
I believe m as short hours and as good
pay as possible for all who toil. And it
is right", Just and proper that the woman
who is compelled to labor ror a living
should receive the same pay tor the
same work, performed as well and within
the time, an the man who works in shop
or factory by her side. Indeed, I would
also let her vote J'r she desired. She Cer
tainly ought to be as much entitled to
this privilege as the thug and ballot-box
sturfer who makes himseir so conspicuous
in some localities.
There sUmld be no quarrel between cap
ital and labor One cannot do without
the other. Both are needed in developing
the latent resources or our Republic; both
are needed to make our nation rich, pros
perous and happy.
In fjhta land we want no classes of so
ciety. No high, no low, no rich, no poor.
Society must not tie Termed in layers like
the earth's crust, as it Ik in other lands.
Here society muat be rather like the ocean,
bo broad, so long, sodpep, that every grain
of sand that mingles with the waters at
the bottom may rise through all the cur
rents until it gleams like a jewel on the
crest of the highest wave. So here, the
poorest son of the man who tolls may wind
his lowly way over tortuous paths to final
greatness, through all grades of society,
from the humble cabin home of poverty,
until he becomes the chief citizen of a
mighty nation, the ruler of the grandest Re
public in history, like Lincoln, Grant, Gar
field and McKInley.
Another danger la Anarchy. It Is the
worst foe ot the poor laboring man in this
country, rt. drowns out his honest cry for
reform with vociferations for anger and
blood ir the vagabonds who are running
up and down the country trying to sow
the seeds of dissension and disloyalty and
strife were bushed up in some place of
security the oppressed and down-trodden
laliorer would have more work and more
bread for his household. Anarchy will not
make women and children les3 hungry, nor
will it make men happier.
Another danger is slavery from political
demagogy and impurity In politics to
that cr ndition whereby a few men may
control our large cities and thus control
the States by methods of corruption, and
thus leave the masses of the people as
helpless as slaves.
Anothei danger is in cpenlng the gates
of the Republic to too much Iiuliseiiminate
foreign immigration. Underhand me, now,
I do not say one word against worthy, de
serving foreigners. Tor my own father wag
born In themcuntainsof Wales, and mostof
our ancestors and forefathers in this Re
public wpre foreigners; among them were
men whom: fathers stcod amid the array
of patriots who wrested Magna Charta from
King John jn the f eld of Runnymede.
And there were those who followed Crom
well atMarxtnnMcoi and Naseby,and there
were tho.se whose fathers followed the
white plume ot Henry of Navarre in the
years of the long ago. But what I do say
is thatevery worthyand deserving man or
woman from every laud and every clime
shall come here and fmd a happy home,
providing they come to be oneorus,tolove
their adopted country as the apple or their
eye, and to be willing to stand by it and
its flag, come weal or woe.
But wedo not intend that this land shall
become the dumping-ground ror the off
scourings of other lands. No, we do not
intend to admit fo many Trojan horses
filled with foreign enemieiwlthlu thegatts
ot our cities.
Oh. let us feel that thi3 great couutryis
Oiir country; that we have a peisonal pro
prietorship In the growing luster or its his
tory and in the honor of its name. Let us
love the different sections together closer
and closer thau ever before. Let her do
main be extended, aud whenever other
lands or even t he islands of the sea may
desire to Join us on our march of progress
and wish the protection of our flag, let
us take then", in and make them feel at
home: and if certain other nations do not
like it, let us send them the message th-it

Wineberger. Mr. Allison Nailor read the
Declaration ot Independence- He was
followed by Mr.E. B. Davis, of Massachu
setts, who made an eloquent addiess.
"Our nation ia at peace with the
world," said Mr. Davis. "The expres
sion of the brave signera at Philadel
phia was not a new thing with them.

the press, and also locomotion, was the
sentiments of those men.

grasp, with more fixedness or purpose, and
cherished with more ardent enthusiasm
then .ever before. The principle or union
expressed in the last part ot the Declara

years before tbnttlnn. We uutsay thesame
thing ot the principle of uniou that we have
said of tbe principle ot liberty-that it is
cherished with a more ardent enthual.ism
than ever before.
Congrees is In session now, and it la
worth while to notice the union that is
sf rongerthan ever before I have watched
the roll calbj for the past few months
and have not yet seen a strictly party
or a strictly sectional vote-
"During the President's recent trip
thollfrfi, the South thousands of persons
greeted and received him. There was not
one disrespectful word. Now, my friend,
on those two pillars liberty and union
rest the foundations of our nation."
The speaker closed with an extract from
the speech made by Daniel Webster a
little while before that great man's death
