AT AUGUST ANA
the day was celebrated as becomes a na
tional holiday of so much interest and
importance. At early dawn tbe stars
and stripes were hoisted to float above
those who were to celebrate the beloved
memory of George Washington. As the
bell called to . morning rayer the band
had gathered under the flag and played a
couple of national airs. At 11 o'clock
the real festivities took place. They bore
the stamp and type of true Americanism .
The national airs, "Hail Columbia." "Star
Spangled Banner" and ''Yankee Doodle,"
were played by the band. ' 'America"and
"God Bless Our Native Land." were sung
by the audience. Other selections were
a variety of solos, instrumental and vocal,
by a choir, declamation, supposed speech
of John Adams, and short addresses.
President Ohaon snoke in behalf of
the old natural zed citizens and offered a
humble tribute f patriotism to the mem
ory of George Wasbirgton. He re
marked, -Our tongue is all that is and
will be foreign about us, onr heart is na
tive American. We glory in the civil
and religious liberty of this country, al
ways remembering that our tongue is
foreign Then he Called attention to
the wonderful power of self-government
Wa hington possessed.
Dr. E F. Bartholemew spoke about
abiding memorials. Tne name George
Washington, is great because about it
centered great historical facts and prin
ciples Tbe birth of Washington was a
great focal po nt in history to which cen
tu:ies of the past pointed, and from
which are sent out effulgent rays of liber
ty to the ends of the earth. He call, d
attention to the noteworthy fact that
George Washington became possessor of
the key to the Bastile. No monument
can be built high enough for his honor.
His value is not to be measured by a
structure of brick, morthr or stone. The
deed that he did, the work that he ac
complished, are the lasting memorials.
Principles are greater than men. Free
dom is not alone for America, it is to be
the common inheritence for the nations of
the ear:h. Then he enumerated a great
numberof las'ing memorials which George
Washington had won and left to thi
country. Also calling; attention to the
other great liberty loving champion,
Abraham Lincoln. Dr. Barthoiemew's
remarhs wi re fitting, rand and of lasting
C. A. Rosander remarked that on a
day like this it mattered very little
whether Methusalah or Adam discovered
Americ. the fiot remained that we are
all Americans and are here to stay. He
scorned all pnflse3 to tbe name Ameri
can of whatever kind or nation they be.
The name American needs no prefix; it
is brotd enough for all natiocalities who
Strive to become true Americans. All
prefixes cnlyseiveto separate and not
unite the people. The whole programme
compri-ed about t ne hour and a hslf.
