GALENA'S STATUE TO GRANT.
The Old Commander Honored lu His Illi
Galena, Ills., June 4. Galena was ar
rayed in dags ami bunting yesterday in
honor of the unveiling of the Grant mon
ument. The largest crowd tbe town bad
ever known was here. Ppeeiol trains had
filled the hotels to overflowing, and yes
terday innrrt; the railroad brought in at
leat 10.UW prvple. Delegations were here
from Chicago. Dubiiuue, Savanna, Free
port, Council Hill and all the surround
ing cities. The procession was formed
when the special from Chicago bearing
Chauncey M. Depew, Gen. Miles, Gen.
$chofield, H. H. Kohlsaat 'and party ar
rived. Twenty thousand people listened
to Mr. Depew's oration.
LeM-rition of the statue.
The statue was the gift of H. II. Kohl
saat, of Chicago, to the citizens of
Galena. Galena was the place of Mr.
Kohlaat's birth. It is of bronze, and
represents the old commander standing in
a characteristic attitude, with one hand
thrust carelessly in his trousers' pocket,
the other resting lightly in bis vest. The
idea conveyed by the figure is in harmony
with the inscription on the pedestal,
"Grant Our Citizen." The pedestal is ten
feet hitfh. The base consists of three
steps of gary Quincy granite, surmounted
by two blocks of red Maine granite, on
which is the polished tablet. It is located
in Grant park, a tract of land bought by
the citizens of Galena in the center of the
city for this purjiose.
Speeehe on the Occasion.
There were three orations delivered at
the unveilirg, which took place letorea
v.ist cuncourse of people aliout a m. The
procession wt-.ich escorted the speakers to
the park was a long one, composed of 'i.
. R. posts, military, and civic organiu
f.oiis. The lirt-t orator wtts ex-liovenior
Hoard, of Wi-vonsin. who in an elrjuejit
speech presented the mnnumom to file
city. Then came the princul oration ue
livered hy C'hattRcey M. IH-pew. and Gov
ernor Filer mailt the closing, address, bi iei
Mr. Depew" Oration.
Mr. Bvpew revitwirl Gen. Grant's career
as soldier, statesman and citizens. Tbe
old commander's offer of his services to a
government which had forgotten Inm w.s
graphically told, as were his struggles to
get an assignment for duty '-for the war"
not for a brief period. His final success,
aided by the .Illinois delegation, which
f-ud to the war secretary: -While most
of the appointments are experiments, try
Capt. Grant as one of your brigadier gen
erals." was recited, and the oft-told story
of ki- achievements was eloquently nar
rated. He compared the careers of George
Washmirton and Gen. Grant, showing
that each was the man for the hour, and
paid a tribute to the exalted patriotism of
the martyr President Lfncoln.
Gaaat ao a Citiien.
Referring to the splendid magnanimity
of the comjueror when lie toid tbe late
rc!els to go home and build up their wast
ed resources again, the orator passed to
Grant as a statesman and c-itiaen. As
pre-iucut, said h. the impartial historian
will judge Gen. Grant by the value of tl.e
measures he advocated, and not by the in
cidenr due to a condition of affairs for
which he was not in the least responsible.
As a cit izen Gen. tfrant was ths product
of the U-st element of our sociaJ life. Al
though a soldier by profession he had no
desire for war. He it was who said: -Let
nw haw peace." Simple anil unostenta
tious his fibre was that of the hero, and
his words as he lay on his lied of suffering
"Much as I sutler, I do it with pleasure
if by that suffering can lie accomplished
the union of my country." wero the indices
of the lidxirs. the aspirations and the
prayer of Grant, the statesman and the pa
triot. The Itemarks tA trovernor Fifer.
Great appla'-.e followed Mr. Depew's
eloquent ilo-ing words, and then Gov
ernor Fifer rose and. among other things,
said: "Thirty years ai:o the experiment
of free popular government on this con
tinent entered upon its grer and final
trial lief ore the civilized world. Ameri
can nationality. American liberty. Ameri
can character and civilization, came up to
the judgment Kir and hour of the God 4
nations. It was a supreme crisis; for. if
free government fell, what other could
ever hope to eiid'ire? When the great re
public numliered her hosts ami set cap
tains over tliem it was found that Illinois,
which had furnished the statesman, was
destined also to furnish the great captain
of that historic crisis.
A Twire Rlesseil .ift.
' He came from people, i.nd his c.tife
was theirs. Wean' bene to receive ard
dedicate this monument. Such a gift is
twice Messed: it ble-ses alike the giver
ami the takers. Ir proves that the great
principles defended ly Grant live immor
tal in the generous breast of the donor.
For this patriotic testimonial I extend to
Mr. Kohlsaat the th:ink of the people of
Illinois, and with the thank I voice for
them I mingle the congratulation of nil
lovers cif lit rty that he has leii gener-ou-ly
moved thus to link his name w ith
nil thii is worfiiy and noble and heroic in
th history of his. country."
