The Union this morning with charac
teristic small oess apprnds the s:gaature
"Many Old Soldierb" to a communication
of iu ova manufacture, the purport of
which is couched in this Ixnguage in ref
ereoce to today's visit to Rock Ieland of
the distinguished Texas senator, Roger
Q. Mills: "As it has been the custom of
the republican business houses to decor
ate their business bouses in courtesy to
their democratic friends on days of dene
ocratic rallies, and while we, as soldiers,
are wil'.ing to treat with courtesy any
loyal democrat, though he miy differ
with us on the political issues of tte day
we do most earnestly protest against the
flag of our country being ucfured

and who represents a part of oar country
where no loyal cil-zen dare disclose hi

and position as that maintained, tha
something more than u.ere notice seems

they would have learned from them tht
the true toldier does not carry
in his breast an everlasting hat

Union's "Msny Old Soldiers" would

they do not consider themselves individ

by .their gallantry and heroism were pre-.

the Union's "Many Old Soldiers' would
have learned from the true soldier of the
war to whom the nation owes iu highest
and best tribute, thenever to be forgotten
words of that immortal hero 'Let us

been soldiers in fact rather than mock
ery, they would have recalled one of the
most touching and beautiful incidents in
connection with the tour of one of the
most gallant of Union soldiers daring the
wr, ss republican president of the United
States, when the women and children of
Che state from which he who is our guest
today comes, decorated the presidential
train with roses, a tribute which Presi
dent Harrison afterward spoke of as one
of the incidents of his trip that he ap
preciated the most. Indeed, in his speech
at Galveston, President Harrison said:
We close tonight a whole week of
travel, a whole week of hand-shaking,
a Whole week of talking. I have before
me tfl.OOO miles of handshaking and
speaking. I am not in
voice to contend with the fine, but
rather strong gulf bretzj which pours in
upon as tonight, and yet it comes to me
laden with the fragrance of your wel
come. It comes with the softness, re
freshment and grace which have accom
panied all my intercourse with the people
of Texas." Other speeches of a similar
nature were made by the presidtnt
on his trip.
It was at El Paso, Texas, that Presi
dent Harrison said in his response to the
address of welcome, and referring to the
war, "It was one of the few wars in
history that brought blessings to the vic
tor and vanquished, and was followed by
bo proscriptions, no blocks, no execu
tions, bat by the reception of those who
had striven for the destruction of the
country into friendly citizenship, laying
apon them no yoke that was not borne
by the veterans that of obedience to
the law and due respect for the rights or
Had the Union's "Many 0:d
Soldiers" been old soldiers in fact,
they' would have recalled how many
times the southern survivors of the war
have been accused of keeping alive the
hostile sectional feeling in this country,
and would bate buried their miserable
hatred of the true American disposition
in the memories of the reunion recently
held at Gettysburg when the men of the
blue and gray grasped hands in biotherly
love and love for one flg. It was a
greater soldier and a greater republican
than the Union represents who sail with
in the last quarter of a century, "we
know no north, no south, no east, no
west, we are one common brotherhood,
shielded and protected by one flag."
Perhaps, however the best argument
that can be presented as to the weight
au i influence of such arguments as those
presented by the Union's "Many Old
Soldiers" is the effect in Rock Island.
People of all political parties have dec-
orated as is their custom in honor of a
distinguished American statesmm. To
be Dure the Union took down
the insignia of the important
federal office it controls, and the stars
and stripes which floated across the
street in front of the Union building were
taken in. but later in the day they were
put out again to be in style with the rest
of the public.
