Commander Lawler .ild he took great
pleasure In Introducing James Whltcomb
Itlley, tho ITooslei poet. Mr Itllej then
read an original poem, as follows:
A l' lie lljinn of til" Itepilblle.
There's a voice across tho nation like c
mighty ocean hail,
Homo up from out the Southward as the
seis before the gale;
Its breath Is In the stre.vrilng Hag and in
the living sail
As wo go illlng on.
'TIs a voice that wo lomember ore Its sum
mons soothed as now
When It rang in battle-challenge, and we
answeied vow with vow
With to ir of gun and hiss of sword and
eiah of piow
As wo went sailing on.
Our hope sank, even as we s iw the sun sink

Tho ship of state went groping through the
IMWIUIllg FIllllUC- ML HtH
Through blackist midnight lurching, till un-
cheered of moon or star,
Yet sailing sailing on,
As one who spake tho dead awake, with
llfeblood leaping waim.
Who walkid the troubled waters all un-
si ithed, In mortal totin,
Wo felt our pilot's presence with his hand
upon the storm,
As wo went sailing on.
O voice of passion lulled to peace, this
dawning of to-djy
O voices tw ilu now blent as one, ye sing
all fears away.
Since foe and foo are friends and lo, the
Lord as glad as thej'
Ho sends us sailing on,
