HONOR TO PATRIOT
Rock Island Club Members Have
Second Annual Lincoln
NOTED SPEAKERS ARE HEARD
Addresses by Hon. James H. Eckels,
Hon. Samuel Alacbuler
Abraham Lincoln, the patriot mid
man. was remembered last evening
by the Rock Island Club, which join
ed with pet pie of his native state and
of the nation in bestowing laure's'of
love and reverence at his shrine.
It was the second Lincoln observ
ance at the clubhouse, and brought
together, aside from the members,
several distinguished gentlemen from
abroad, including Hon. .lames II. Rck
els, pre: ident f the Commercial Na
tional bank, Chicago, and Hon. Sam
uel Alschuler, cue of the leading bar
risters i f Chicago and who two years
ago was the deim cratie candidate for
governor of Illinois. Accompanying
Mr. Kckels from Chicago were J. C.
MeKeon and K. M. Landis. Letters of
regret were read from (!v, S. R. Van
Sant, of Minnesota; (lov. Richard
Yates, nf Illinois; Gov. Cummins, of
Iowa; Senalors Hopkins. Illinois, Al
lison and Dolliver. Iowa. Col. V. .
Low den. of Chicago, and Congress
men I!. F. Mar&h and G. Y. Prince.
One hundred and ten persons were
seated. This was the number limited,
tiie tables having been arranged in
the billiard room. The room ww ex
quisitely dee rate 1 in the national
colors, the scheme having been con
ceived by .lust us R. Tuckis. Rusts of
Lincoln graced the west and north
wails, on the east wall there was a
huge oil painting of the martyred
president, while in other sections of
the room there were hung likenesses
of McKiniey, Roosevelt and Logan.
Greenery was intertwined with Amer
ican flags, with which the walls were
draped, and the light from the incan
descents radiated through tinsel cov
erings of re I. w hite and blue, pro
ducing a beautiful color e fleet. The
sejving -f the banquet was begun at
s o'clock. Manager R. R. Lawlor oul
sliining his former efforts in this di
reclion, the following being the menu:
Acadian Cream Soup.
Salted Almonds. Olives.
Whitefish. Maitre d'llotei.
Tenderloin of Reef, a la Cherron.
French l'eas. Potatoes Marchioness.
Ice Cream. Silver Cake.
Camcmbert Cheese. Rents Cracker?.
Oratory Ileclofi to Flow.
F. A. Head, president i f the club,
ollicintcd ;:s toat master, and. as on
former occasions. showed himself
mot admirably fitted. After dwell
ing on the ccasion for the gathering,
the honoring of the memory of a son
of IKimis. whose manhood, patriot
ism and self-sacritiee ha 1 won him
tin highest office in the land, rising
from a position of obscurity without
the heritage even of a noble lineage.
Mr. Head prefaced the introduction of
each speaker by relating some feat
ure of the hitter's life in a manner
that never failed to surprise the one
at whom it was directed, and brought
dov n t he house.
Mr. Kckels was the first speaker.
"For more than forty years the pe
ple of the world huve turned with af
fectionate remembrance to him (Lin
coln) and poured out their earnest
expressions of appreciation of his
memory.' said the speaker. "With
out regard to politics, creed or
nati'. nality we ought to turn to him.
for of all the great citizens of patriot
ic endeavor, unselfish effort, he tow
ers above them all." He was great,
the speaker continued, in his love of
law. patriotism, for that which makes
i:p true Hh.erty. Of all the great acts
and ordinances there was none great
er than the one which formed the
northwest territory. ut of which
grew the state t:f Illinois. The eman
cipation pr elamatioii. to which Lin
coin aflixed hN signature, that the
negro should be released from bond
age. ha taken its place alongside the
two great ordinances that became ef
fective in the years before its crea
tion the magna oharta of England
and the declaration of independence.
Out of all the struggles and privations
that were hN it is no wonder that he
shonl 1 have moved to make this mas
tor stroke in lvehalf of human rights.
Illinois, i 11 all its traditions, before his
time and since, has been a state where
liberty on the part of .citizens had
prevailed, but who shall say anyone
contributed more than him. Mr. Kck
els doubled if there live! a poet
whose pen or a painter whose brush
could do justice to Lincoln. He was
a commoner, hut he drew to hint al!
classes. He was n iover of his cuin
try. a lover of his race. He believed
in ihe supremacy of the law. that law
that finds itself written in the heart
of a true manhood. U' li ve of law
and order could be studied with profit
by every man. voting and old.
Example of Poiibl!ltlc-.
Linci In was the best example of the
pos-dbdities cf American manhood.
Without education r the prestige f
a m lde name. h made for .himself
that which today was withiu the
reach of every man who was willing
to abide by law an 1 patriotism and
embrace opportunities as they were
offered to him. Out of great dix-our-
'agemcnt he emerged the leader of bis
people, the preserver of a nation. Sue
cess would come to any man who had
the courage and fixedness of purpose
to persevere and .pursue to the end
his undertakings. There were great
deeds to be accomplished in these
piping times of peace as there were
dining the civil strife. "What we
need." said Mr. Eckels, "is a revival of
patriotism, not produced by the tramp
of soldiers, but an expression that
finds its loudest action in each citizen
inquiring of himself if he is doing his
full dutv towards his fellows, his na
tion and his state. The malcontent
who is carping against the adminis
tration of the state and national laws
should ask himself if he is doing his
duty. You cannot build up a state or
nation until you have first been puri
fied and built up. The aggregate
must be an expression of the individ
ual's total." Mr. Kckels said he was
an optimist. Lincoln was not a pessi
mist, but sin optimist. Mr. Kckels be
lieved the rptiniist was the best pa
triot this country could produce. Lin
coln believed in Ood and trusted the
American people, and the end of his.
administration saw the union preserv
ed. When he died, the pathos of his
death and the heroism of his life took
hold cf the people, who thought of
him no longer as a republican parti
san, but as an American citizen, a pa
triot and a man.

Robert Rexdale. of this city, recited
an original poem entitled "Xo More
the Rugle Calls to Arms:"
Reside the martyr's storied tomb,
1 dream of battles wc n;
The armies pass in dim review,
Reyond the setting sun.
And dory guards the nation's dead,
Where flows the Sangamon.
Unto this hallowed spot of earth.
The first spring blossom comes;
No more the bugle calls to arms.
Nor sound of throbbing drums;
Rut safe within the cannon's mouth
The drowsy beetle hums.
Far down the vista of the past,
I see the senate grave
I hear the clash of fierce debate
Around the shackled slave;
Again I see the fighting hosts.
The fleets upon the wave.
Rut Lincoln's voice at dettysburg,
Clear ringing through the years.
Hath naught of anger for the foe.
Xo note of servih fears;
I feel the pnthoF of his words,
The tribute of his tears.
"Fourscore and sever years ago.
Our fathers gave to thee
This country of the starry flag.
' Ci nceived in liberty
And dedicated to the thought
That all men should be free.
"Xow- we engage in civil war.
To test by death and pain.
If such it nation, s.o cs.neeived.
Is destined fo retaain;
"To prove that t lies-5', our honored dead.
Shall not have died in vain.
"And we have come to dedicate
A portion of this field.
To be a final resting place
For him who would not yield
Rut. dying as the Spartan died.
Came home upon his shield."
The tide of battle surges on.
Death rides amid the fray;
A million hearths are desolate.
Their idols torn away;
The mother moutneth for her sons
Among the bine and gray.
Thus do I dream, O. Sangamon,
Reneath this wooded shade.
The story of the sacrifice
On war's red siltar laid
And thus I sing thy martyr's name.
Whose glory shall not fade.
Mr. Rexdale responded to an encore,
reciting "The Homage of the Drum."
Mr. AUchaler on "Blue and Gray."
"The Rltie and the Oray" was the
toast assigned Mr. Alschuler. who be
gan by showing something of the
lighter side of Lincoln's life, repeat
ing a number i f stories that were at
tributed to him. In Lincoln's stories
was displayed his real philosophy. He
was a great man because he did not
tower above other men. because he
was essentinlly human. As some one
had sail. Ood must have loved the
common people, for He made so many
of them. Many of the acts of Lincoln
were made known thri ugh his stor
ies. His stories gave an index to his
chaiactcr. He had a horror of the
ofiice-seeker. Once when a mild 'case
of smallpox was ilis-covered in his
family, he notified his secretary to
invite all the office-seekers to come to
him: that in w he had something for
all of them. Turning to the causes
lending i:p to the civil conflict. Mr.
Abchuler said the bone of contention
had always been there. It was noth
ing new. It was a festering sore that
affected both the north and south, and
no I'niteil Slates could long have ex
isted had not bet n performed that
gieat operation reimving the sore
from the body politic. It was remov
ed by force of circumstances, but the
blue and fhe gray went forth from
the north and the south, fighting and
living, that their country migbt live
on in' unity, peace and proserity.

"The Toastmaster" was a subject
treated most ehquently by .ludge
Nathaniel French, of DavenHrt. who
traced the ev lution of this most .es
jential f unctir nary, and concluded
with a witty arraignment of the per
sonal attributes of the president of
the club who was acting in that ca
pacity Iat evening.
There was orchestral nd vocal mu
sic, most of the selections being of a
patriotic order. The banquet adjourn
