ment and at Chlpplannock Cemetery
The head of a grateful and reverent
nation was bowed today in memory
to the dead of war, upon the graves
of whom were tenderly laid the llow.
era 01 spring. in lioeK island.
as usual, the observance of the
occasion was of a public character,
business generally suspending, and
the people assembling to do honor to
the sleeping -heroes, those who gave
up their lives in the civil conflict, and
not forgetting those of the boys who
fell in the late Spanish-American war,
the remains of some of whom
rest in the national cemetery at
Rock Island arsenal. '
Flags were llung from public build
ings along Second avenue, and over
the line of march and throughout the
city the national colors were uufurled
to the breeze.
The memorial exercises were in
charge of John Buford pest. Grand
Army of the Republic. The proces
sion formed at 0 o'clock on the south
side of the Court House square, and
moved as follows under the direction
of Marshal of the Day John Ohlweiler:
East on Third avenue - to Twentieth

Mayor William MeCenochic offici
ated as master of ceremonies at Mar
ket Square, where a large concourse
of people had gathered hi response to
the bugle call sounded by Tom Flynn.
A fervent prayer was offered by lie v.
C. K. Taylor, "late pastor of the First
Baptist church. A patriotic selection
was played by Bleuer's band, and a
double quartet, composed of Sewall
Dodge. J. A. Johnson. B. F. Boydston,
Charles Lutes. C. (J. Taylor, J. F. Kob
inson, L. C. Daugherty and C. A. Hoge
sang "A Tear for the Comrade That's
Gone." The oration was delivered
by Hon. Charles Atkinson, an attor
ney in the employ of the government
in connection with Hennepin canal
legal work, and who is making his
headquarters in Rock Island. "The
cross is still in the eternal blue and
the nations of earth are being con
quered by it," said Mr. Atkinson.
The vanguard of the hosts, battling
for humanity, is America. American
civilization is both distinct and unique.
Knightly chivalry of ancient days
has often been told in oratory and song,
jet in our own land there has been
and is a chivalry unsurpassed and an.
equaled. Difficulties bring out the
true American spirit. The struggle
for independence developed powers,
forces and resources not known hith
erto. From '61 to "G5, amid the
greatest civil conflict of the world,
our civilization stood a supreme test.
Amid the stern realities of national
life amid its hardships, privations
and trials, brain and siuew have
leen developed brain that -. rev
olutionized the realm of ideas
ami thought; sinew that conquered
all difficulties and overcome all obsta
cles. The contest from 1861 to 1865
was the same that has been waged
since the dawn of history; a contest
between aristocratic power on the one
hand and the people on . the other.
When the bell rang out and notified
the world that the great Declaration
of Independence had been signed, one
of the mightiest onward movements
toward universal freedom began.
If Old Glory Still.
"Today, in loving memory we gar
land the graves of our heroic dead.
Their sacrifice and yours have not
been in vain. On many a bloody bat
tlefield old glory was shot full of
holes, but it is "old glory still. It
(vmboli7.es the best in humanity, the
highest in mankind, the - noblest in
human hearts. Year by year your
comrades hear the last roll call. "The
Great Commander needs them yonder.
There on the eternal camping ground,
the mightiest army the world ever
saw is assembling. Lincoln is there,
and Sherman and Igan and the hosts
of heroes that saved a nation's life
and made the civilization of the world
possible, are and will be there. To
day in onr land the contendings of
men cease: the strifes of life are for
gotten; the selfishness of mankind is
hidden away, as we come to pay onr j
tributes of respect and devotion to
the mighty dead. The troubles of J
life are hushed; the struggles of hu-
manity suspended, while, in this
beautiful land of ours tens of thous-'
ands are twining the forget-me-nots'
with the myrtle and the ivy, decorat-'
ed.with the" rose and carnation, and as '
beautiful wreaths, evidencing love and
loyalty placing them on the graves of'
the heroes, who being dead, yet alive.
This is a holy day, made sacred by
the American people, in remembrance
of a loyal ty that never faltered and a
patriotism "that never Cinched. This!
day symbolizes to in a united country. I
one and nndivisible. As we go!
to the silent city of the dead
and crown the graves of oar
fallen heroes, we will cherish
their memories; we will' enshrine
them in onr hearts. We revere their
sacrifices and catch the inspiration of
their magnificent deeds. Their splen
did achievements have given lustre to
American arms, American valor and
American ideas. In their reflected
glory our hearts are mellowed and,
in the recollection of their hallowed
triumphs, we catch glimpses of a
holier life and a grander destiny."
Mr. Atkinson drew a touching pic
ture of the conflicts in which Ameri
can lives were sacrificed for country
and flag, spoke of the never-to-be-forgotten
lessons taught by war, and
carried his hearers over across the
seas to where onr soldiers and sailors
are lighting, speaking particularly of
the glorious victory achieved by Dewey
and his men in the harbor of Manila

A song by the quartet, "Brave Bat
tery Boys,'"' concluded the exercises
at Market square, and the march
was resumed tu the monument in
Court House square. The shaft had
been beautifully arranged with flow
ers. Here the Grand Army service
was carried out by John Buford post
and the salute to ihe dead tired by the
Sons of eterans. The quartet sang
"Soldier's Graves," after which the
Sons of Veterans' service was given.

ORDERS TO CEASE WORK.
Operations on the Short Line Are 8 im
Says the Peoria Journal: "Orders
were received at the office of the War
ren Sharf Asphalt Construction com
pany in this city this morning to dis
continue work on the St. Louis, Peo
ria & Northern short line from this
city to East Clinton. This order came
through ..the . St. Louis, Peoria &
Northern officials in St. Lcuis, and
will have the effect of suspending op
erations at all points on the line at
once. No intimation was received at
the office in this city in regard to the
future action of the" present owners of
the line, and nothing is known of their
intentions, although it is not the
opinion of the former officials of the
road in this city that the construction
of the short line will be permanently
discontinued. At present all the
work is covered and something like
one-third of the road under grade is
ready for the iron. While the actual
amount that has been expended on
the road so far is not definitely known,
but it is understood that it will ap
proximate several hundred thousands
of dollars. The order will throw 1,000
men out of employment."
