THE ARGUS. MONDAY, FJEi3KUARY 23, 1S91.
GRAND ARMY GRIEF.
Memorial Services in Honor of Gen.
Ab Inter Htlac Mn by Bv fci. W.
Cine at the first 91. E-Chnrvh
Interesting and impressive memorial
services were held in honor of Gen. W.
T. Sherman at the First M. E. church
last evening. Buford Post 213. G. A. R.,
attended in a body accompanied by a
numer of the Sons of Veterans of John
Morris camp. The pews in the centre of
the church were reserved for the veterans
who marched together from their ball to
the church with the draped flag of the
pott at the head of the column .
The sermen was preached by Rev. G.
W. Gue, pastor of the church whose
text was from Second Samuel, 8:88:
"Know ye not that there is prince and a treat
Once more, said the pastor, the Sag of
our country is at half mast. Gen. YV.
T. Sherman is dead. The great conqueror
is conquered. He was vanquished and
beaten otl because he was human.
Comrades will meet, but the; will miss
him, and this fact spreads a gloom over
our whole nation. The last of our greats
est military chieftains has been called
away, gone to join the great majority and
answer to the final roll call. Those who
lead our armies and guided our nation
through the greatest Etorm and peril of
her existence ara gone. Sherman was a
great commander, but a greater com
mander, one who commands nations as
we'd as armies, has given the command
and before him Sherman with all our
greatest generals must appear.
Although gone ' from earth they have
left their characters stamped upon tbe
world and their patriotism a glory for our
nation. Grant was great in pertinacity,
always meeting and fighting the enemy
with a caution that never left his engage
ments in doubt or his success to chance.
Sheridan was our dashing hero whose en
terprise had never been excelled and
vihose brilliancy and alertness had no
superior in the wars of mankind. But
THE GREATEST SCIENTIFIC WARRIOR
and the greatest tactician. He will stand
as a peer of the great generals of the
world, and will always be loved for his hon
est sincerity. From the day he entered the
Bervice of our country until he received
the surrender of Johnston he was every
where adequate to the possibilities of the
situation in which the circumstances of
war placed him. General Grant in many
ways and upon many occasions expressed
his implicit confidence in General Sher
man's sufficiency for any of the emergencies
he waa called to face. When General
Sherman cut loose from Atlanta on his
famous march to the sea. and the north
was filled with disheartening rumors of
the uncertainty of his whe eabouts Gen.
Grant never wavered in his trust. He as
sured President Lincoln that in good
time General Sherman would reach his
objective point on the coast. It is im
possible to overestimate the military im
portance of that march to the sea and the
subsequent march north. Through four
hostile and rebellious states Sherman's
army carried the ensign of a vic
torious and inseparable union. Not
only did it strike tne base of the con
federate supplies, but it awakened the
people of the south to the fact that they
were beinc deceived by false reports
made to them of the wasting condition of
the federal armies. Il demonstrated to
their deceived senses the truth that the
north was waxing daily more irresistible
as their own resources were gradually
disappearing. It paralyzed tbe heart of
the confederacy, and left Richmond at
the mercy of the army of the Potomac.
Sherman's success depended upon no one
thing, but on a gTeat many sterling traits
requisite in a military commander. He
was a wonderful organizer, an unerring
judge of men and their capabilities. He
Impressed his command with the wisdom
and honesty of his purpose and inspired
them with fortitude. Although a strict
disciolinarian and rigid in his determina
tions, he always bad the love
and admiration of those who fought with
him . He was great in his achievements,
great in character and was without a
blot upon his life record. His rid through
Mississippi and bis famous
MARCH TO THE SEA
will forever rank with the most brilliant
and effective military operations of the
world. When all is said that can be said
the fact looms up that this man was one
of the greatest so'dierB of the age. He
knew little and cared nothing about poli
tics and diplomacy. His way of settling
a difficulty was to cut the gordian knot
with the sword. He was a hard fighter
and never grew sentimental in the pres
ence of bloodshed and death. But when
the business of war was over, when he
had accomplished his mission, he showed
a softer side, and men and women, even
among his enemies, found him a very
lovable man .
The tears and acclaim of a reunited
people follow him as obediently and fear
lessly as he marched out unattended into
the unknown. It was no earthly corn
minder this time who gave the order that
summoned him to cut loose from his base
of Bupplies and march forth upon his laBt
campaign . We who rejoiced in his glor
ious achievements as a soldier, in his
sterling character as a man and citizen,
have faith to believe that the final order
found him prepared and ready to obey.
Profitable lessons can be gathered from
the closing scenes of every life, but espec
ially from those who stood among us as
stars of the first magnitude.
Mr. Gue then drew the lessons to be
learned from the life of Gen. Sherman as
first, loyalty, second, true courage, third,
fdelity. The speaker then referred to
Gen. Sherman's christian life, saying that
very little was known as to
HIS RELIGIOUS COBVTCTIONB ,
and views. He wef expressed - - respect
for the religion embraced by his wife and
also his faith in God and in the future.
While he never made a public profession
ef christian religion or united
with any religious denomination,
it is evident that bis sympathies
"Were wi.h the Roman Catholic church.
To that body of Christian people belong
the honor of having him classed among
them. Continuing, the preacher sa:d:
It would be difficult for him to have
his sympathies in any other direction
his wife a staunch Roman Catholic and
his son a priest. I think none the less of
Gen. Sherman for that; that is a matter
between himself and Gad. Sherman,
like Sheridan and Austerhaus and Sigel
and others, were all Roman Catholics,
and not a drop of disloyal blood flowed
iu their veins. As true American citizens
it is not a question with us what denomi
nation a man is identified with, but is he
true to our institutions. A man's rtlig
ion is a matter of conscience, and our flag
professes protection to every man in his
conscience. I would draw my sword to
protect a Roman Catholic in his religious
rights of conscience as quickly as I
would to protect a Protestant. It has
been said that I have abused the Roman
Catholic religion from this
pulpit. That I positively deny. I
may contravert points of theology, but I
abuse no one's religious faith. I have
raised my voice against our governmental
affairs being interfered wiih by the pope
in Rome. Of course I do not accept the
dogma of his infallibility, and thousands
of Roman Catholics believe as I do upon
that subject. There never was but one
infallible being on this eartb, and that was
Jesus Christ. I have reason to believe
that the pope is a good man, one of the
best men in the world, but not infallible.
I object to his having anything to do
with the affairs of this government, be
cause be is an Italian, was never in this
nation and knows nothing of the spirit of
cur institutions. As tte head of the
greatest christian organization on earth
he deserves the greatest honor as a man.
In mcst European countries church and
state are united, but here in America all
churches are upon an equal footing, the
laws protecting us all alke. My principle
is to treat all churches as I would like to
have them treat me. and grant to every
church the same right and protection that
I ask for my sei f . While there is a great dif
ference between Protestanti ? m and Roman
Catholicism the wisest and best thing for
us all to do is to study each other and as
far as possible help ne another to a bet
ter understanding and to a truer christian
life. And somewhere in the future we
may know each other better and see eye
to eye and work hand in band for the sal
yationofmen. In conclusion Mr. Gue said he desired
to say one more word to the old soldiers.
They should remember that being a sol
dier for their country would not save
them. ' It will be an awful mistake" be
concluded, "to bavecovered yourself with
glory in serving your country and then
suffer final defeat and go out of this
world in 6in and shame, as disloyal to the
great commander of the universe."
Rock Island Division No. 106, O. R.

' It is beyond a doubt the greatest dra

scenes, situations and climaxes are all
strong and well worked up, while the
special scenery is both effective and realis

box cars in motion and the fast mil tak

praise, not only for this production which
