'One of continuous glory, and not in a
fSingle instance has one ever proven
ttraitor to his country. These old sol
diers among us remember well the bat
tles fought around ithis city, and they
Reserve our thighest honor. They are'
dropping out one by one, and we should
honor them in life and in death. Dur
ing the Spanish-American War the
only city in which the black soldiers
received -a welcome was in Nashville,
our -.own -city. If we us civilians had
done our work as well as the black sol
diers -tve would tie better off in this
