.Mr. Toustmaster: it Is with heartfelt

wore the blue and those who wore the
gray as comrades .1 blunt, soldierly word,
around which cling many tender memo

In history. The sublime results of the bat

have Imttrctsed the foundations of a gov
ernment "of the people, by the people and
for. the people,"
The assertion, that the right of withdraw
al from the I'tilon wus inherent In each
state, wis nearly as old as the constitution
Itself. Stat,e sovereignty dug the mine to
which, for three scoie cirs, busy linnils
can led the powder, which, In 1SC1, was ig
nited at Fort Sumter.
That explosion was the tocsin of war;
from Its lurid t mbers sprang the federal
and the Confedeinte, the blue and the
gray. In the twinkling of iin oe the e,it
lren was transformed Into the soldier, the
Xorth and the South became armed camps,
the nation trembled nntlei tho martial tread
of advancing armies. Men who levered
the same constitution, men who were born
under the same Hag, men who spoke the
same language, men who were united bv
the ties of a common kindred, men who
lead the snme Jlible, met In deadly con
flict, lighting as soklleis never fought be
fore. Three decades after that conflict, we,
survivors of those contending armies, meet
as brothers tried, as citizens of a common
country, nnd under the stars nnd stripes
return thnuka to Him whp hathpreserved
us as a nation. With the btavo men who
did the fighting, in those years tlint put
courage to the crucial test, the war ended
Ily the arbitrament of war, the highest
tribunal known to notions. It was deeldid,
for nil time, that, under the constitution,
this Is nn Indissoluble union of Indestructi
ble states; that supreme soeielgnty ts
vested n the national government.
Out of that conflict came the convic
tion, universal, more earnest and llrm than
evei opiese,l b the pen of Hamilton, 01
ever fell fiom Hie lips nf WehMer, tint
there is no mountain, river or othei naturnl

Let us lilKhly resolve to dlschario that

Hirst, the Carlisle bill, for the reform ot
the currency system, went down: next, the
bill for the Issue of JWUW.iW of gold bonds,
and then the retirement of the legal ten
ders, recommended lu the president's spe
cial message, was defeated last Thursilny
by a ninjorlts' ot 27, and to-dny the house,
by a majorllj- even larger (17), lefused to
older to a tlilttl rending the resolution by
which It was pioposcd to aulliorlre the Is
sue ot fi'-'.OOO.OXI ot 3 per cent gold bonds
to substitute for the thlrts" year bonds sold
by Hecri-tiiry Cat lisle under the contract
