Maj. J. G. Cutler's Oration in the
A Mawlerly Effort at AukdkIs Which
9 Heartily romuendet- ra
trio lm and Ta'tr.
Of the t rmy officers who from time
to time have been stationed at Rock Isl
and arsenal, none wece more popular In
Rock Island than Capl. J. Q. Butler.who
left here less than a year ago, in obidi
ence to orders assigning him elsewhere.
Since his departure he has been promo
ted to the rank of major, and is now
commandant of Augusta (Oa.) arsenal.
At a recent southern survivors' celebra
tion, at which Wade Hampton was hero
of the day, the crowning event was the
banquet, at which 1.200 southern veterans
feasted. Mai . J. G. Butler was one of
the chief speakers, responding to the
toast. "The Aro.y and Navy." The
Augusta (papers are profuse in their
praise of the officer's response which the
Augusta News terms the gem of the oc
casion, magnanimous as well as aDpro
pnate. The Augusta Chronicle devotes
a great deal of space to it and says:
The beautiful and conservative address
of Maj. J. Q. Butler was the subject of
much favorable comment last nignt. The
presence at tne memorial exercises of
Maj. But'.er. the commander of the Au
gusta arsenal, was a graceful and hand
some testimonial from a popular Union
commander. Maj. Butler appeared in
full army dress. His response at the ex
position dinner was in splendid taste and
6tyle. He is a public spirited and mag
nanimous soldier. Maj. Butler has al
ready won the respect and admiration of
The same paper then goes into a syn
opsis of Maj. Butler's address, which will
be read with interest, not only by the
major's miny friends here, but by the
union veterans of the war generally.
Here is what the Chronicle ssys on that
The next toast was "The Army and
Navy of the United states," to be respon
ded to by Maj. J. G. Butler, command
ant of the U. S Arsenal in this city. Bi
ing regarded, as he naturally was as the
representative of that people who con
stituted the foeman of tne southern con
federacy at the period of the civil war, as
well as the impersonation of the union
to which, under the wide win:s of peace,
those reconciled champions of secession
now subscribed in loyal allegiance, con
siderable interest was manifested in what
he might have to say. That he acquitted
himself well is putting the matter mildly,
and the manner in which he handled the
subject, ceding to the confederate soldier
that integrity and conscientiousness, that
valor acd patriotism which is claimed
for him. and yet without the least reflec
tion to the uniform he wore, won for him
worthy and extensive commendation.
Maj Butler began by saying that
among the remarks of the honored guest
of the day. Gen. Wade Hampton, was
one in particular in which be felt in sym
pathetic accord, and he could under
stand the feeling which sometimes
prompted the remark thai one would
rather fight than make a speech, adding,
"and if the courtesy which has made me
your guest had extended so far as to have
exempted me from this call, my gratitude
had hardly been less and my enjoyment
possitively unalloyed. But when chal
lenged by a kindly sentiment which ap
peals equally to my pride and patriotism,
I can do no less than acknowledge my
hearty appreciation of the toast.
"In speaking of our small army let me
take this opportunity to say a few words
in its praise, since I have not had the hon
or of sharing in any of its recent hard
ships. An European officer has lately
said that the service performed by a sin
gle squadron of American cavalry or bat
talion of infantry would be deemed suffi
ciently ex actios for a couple of German
regiments. Ttiia little army, scattered
over an empire of territory, has protected
the construction of Dearly every trunk line
of railroad west of the Mississippi; it has
advanced by many years the population
and civilizition of a million of square
miles, and, whether suffering and crippled
by the rigors of a Dakota 'blizzard,' or
toiling, half famished and exhausted, over
the burning sands of a trackless desert or
suppressing a mob or fighting often as a
forlorn hope against a wily and blood
thirsty foe (alternately armed and exas
perated by a wretched political agency),
I think it but just to claim that it has
performed its duty honorably and with
faithfulness even unto death.
"And our navj ; how often has its very
weakness been concealed and the honor
and dignity of the government maintained
solely by the valor and boldness (I had
almost said the effrontery) of its officers
and men . And bow often in the dark
days of disaster in the field has come the
news of some brilliant exploit of our al
ways gallant tars to thrill with pride the
hearts of the people and to brighten the
gloom of despondency. It is not true of
such men to say that they desire no other
reward than the consciousness cf duty
well performed, but it is true cf them that
in the simple approval of their fellow cit
izers they have their abundant reward.
"As to politics, the army and navy have
no politics; that is (turning to Congress
man Barn?), unless we happen to want
Homethitg. The only political lesson we
are taught is, that in this country the mil
itary must be subservient to the civil
ower. "Our country, right or wrong,'
ii the only political watchword fit for a
soldier. Thank God. the issues of the
v.-ar are dead, and the great political par
t es of the country are divided upon living
issues. For myself. I hope to see the day
v. hen a mighty party shall rise in this lar d
aid, shaking off the listless, the timid,
ti e time -server, the alien in race and the
debased slaves and criminals of other na
ti ins, achieve its victory and ascend to
power under a banner upon which shall
be inscribed, phropbetic woTds, America
"The time has long since passed when
there could be any unusual significance in
th 3 presence of a union soldier at a gath
ering of confederate survivors; for the
era of manly toleration and good feeling
among tbe active participants of the war
had its birth soon after the disbanding of
the armies, and during the period of that
scarcely less sanguinary struggle of tbe
knights of tbe pen, who rushed with such
impetuous valor to the fray after we poor
campaigners thought that the war wag
over. These gallant warriors .flung more
mud than we ever waded through, but,
somehow or other, they threw it so high
that it has only recently come down to
"The gun which this morning thun
dered forth its we.'come to a confederate
general was, scarcely a generation ago,
trained against the brave hearts of those
whose friendly glances now move me
more strongly than did their fierce looks
as an assaulting foe. All the more credit
mine, tnat I stand to my guns with greater
fidelity now thin was at all limes deemed
"I unite cordially with you, gentlemen,
in this right royal welcome to your dis
tinguished guest whom, equally with
yourselves, I am privileged mis day to
honor. The south bad one greu ad
vantage in the war to compensate it for
the vastly greater resources of its op
ponent. It had leaders from tbe start
whose names were already household
words and cherished characters in history,
names which in themselves were a very
'tower of strength.' Hampton was such
a name, and I can well conceive how
rapidly and enthusiastically the ranks
would fill for such a leader. The world
has witnessed how they fought for him.
"I wear upon my breast today tbe em
blem of an order (Loyal Legion.) formed
like your own, ere it be too late, of the
survivors of that fearful conflict of which
the history of the world records no par
allel. A terrible and vivid reality that,
yet one which the laps of litre seems to
resolve into a vision where only the nob
ler attributes of manhood find expression .
A picture in whose very grandeur is lost
all horrifying detail a picture in blue
and'gray. A mighty conflict, followed
by unending peace a reunited people in
bonds both fraternally and commercially
stronger than ever; al! under one fitg
which Providence has decreed shall o'er
spiral a continent.
' On this Memorial day which marks
your affection for the living and offers its
tribute to tbe dead, I greet au association
formed to perpetuate the memory of
brave deeds, of noble sacrifices and of
heroic courage. Some of us have en
dured fewer hardships and hive made
lighter sacrifices than ethers, bu. we
honor ourselves in remembering and hon
oring the true heroes of the war and. es
pecially, those silent thousands who can
uever greet us in fraternal union until
the grave has closed over the world's last
soldier and tbe heavenly reveille has
ushered us into a 6trifeless world."
At tbe conclusion the spontaneous out
burst of tn:hn?Uhiu was irrepressible,
and many old veterans Lo surrounded
him rushed up and shook his band warmly.
