New Haven's Soldier' Monument. It was a common remark among the vet erans and other New Haveners who witness ed the big parade in Hartford yesterday that New Haven's soldiers' monument dedication should be the occasion 'of a similar grand demonstration. It was also remarked that the dedication would probably occur this fall, but it is learned that the figure of "Peace," which is to crown the monument, will probably not arrive in time to allow it and it looks as if the dedication will be delayed until late next spring.

Mrs. Hubbard roused the girl enough to make her get into her carriage and then took her to the Board of Associated Charities on Church street when Dr. White was summon ed and after seeing that she was out of dan ger had her sent home. She was arrested yesterday, however, and will probably be sent to the State Industrial school. If You Prefer a Pure Soap . yae Osa. S. HraoiaJS' "German Laundry, HARTFORD'S DEDICATION DAY.

Hartford's memorial arch, erected to com memorate the brave deeds of her sons in up holding the honor and integrity of the nation in its hours of peril,' is completed and has been appropriately dedicated. Hundreds and thousands of people from all parts of the State and from other States gathered at the "Capitol" city yesterday to do honor to the occasion. They gathered from hillside and valley, fiom the busy marts of industry in the larger-cities and towns, the farms and manufacturing2 Villages to do honor to the occasion! Not the men alone, but the wo men and children left their homes and helped to swell the meat thronsr on this eventful occasion. The threatening weather of the morning, and which continued the greater part Of the day, no doubt kept hundreds from partici pating in the interesting ceremonies, and but for this the crowd would no doubt have been as large or larger than it was on the ever memorable " Battle Flag day." New Haven added her full quota to the contingent that went to aid her sister city in the celebration. Every regular morning train and the special as well carried to their destination hundreds of her citizens. The 8 o'clock train, which was composed of six teen cars, carried Governor Harrison, Adju tant General Smith, Colonel Tracy B. War ren, Executive Secretary Osborne and other members of his staff. On the same train went many well known citizens of New Ha ven, among whom were Mayor Holcomb, President of the Aldermen Thomas R. Trow bridge, jr., Corporation Counsel Driscoll, W. F. Sternberg, Cashier Trowbridge of the Mechanics' bank, Captain F. T. Lee, Merritt W. Bur well and many others. The 8:15 special train was made up of fourteen cars on which were Admiral Foote post No. 17, Simeon J. Fox commander, 225 officers and men; Henry C. Merwin post, William Gleason commander, 100 officers and men; Nathan Hale camp, Sons of . Veterans, Captain Chas. K. Farnham, 40 officers and men, all being accompanied fey their respective dram corps. Then there were the Sarsfield Guard, Captain Garrity, with 50 men, and the Governor's Horse Guard, Major Strong in command, delegations from the neighboring Grand Army posts in the Naugatuck valley and Milford. When the train' bearing the Governor's staff reached Hartford they were met at the depot by the Governor's Horse Guard and escorted to the Allyn House, which was the headquarters of his excellency during the day. Before the noon hour arrived, which was the time set for the literary exercises to com mence, thousands of people had gathered in the vicinity of the grand stand and the num ber continued to increase until the park in the near vicinity was literally filled with people. The stand was nearly in front of the terrace and to the west of the tents assigned as headquarters of the various organizations. The exercises commenced with muBic by the band, followed with prayer by Rev. Joseph H. Twitchell, a member of the mon ument committee. Vocal music, nnder the direction of J. M. Gallup, followed, when Colonel George P. Bissell. chairman of the monument committee, delivered the memo rial arch to-the town. Among the more important facts gleaned from Colonel Bissell's address was the follow ing: At a special town meeting held the 25th day of November, 1881, the sum of $60,000 was appropriated from the town funds for the purpose of defraying the cost of "a mon ument commemerating the services of the soldiers and sailors who enlisted from Hart ford in the late war, and who fell in action or died from wounds and diseases incurred in discharge of their duty." After referring to the appointment of the committee to select a site and supervise the work, the col onel said: Your committee beg leave to report that all the bills, with some few exceptions and for very small amounts, are in and paid, und will soon be audited by the proper au thorities; and your committee is also able to report that this memorial has been built, as was the case with our beautiful State House, ; AYour committee now hand over to the .tbwn of Hartford this aroh, an enduring; memorial in honor of the men of Hartford who Served, and in memory of those who fell on land and sea in the war for the Union. GZNMAI, HAWLXY'S ADDRESS. General Hawley's speech was a noble trib ute to the occasion and was listened to with deep and profound attention by the large concourse of people, to a large part of whom the speaker's voice was audible. After speak ing of "Battle Flag Day" in 1879 and its pomp and glory, and alluding to the occa sion which had called this great assemblage together with so large a collection of the men most notable and honored in Connecti cut to-day, he proceeding said: The repeated selection of this day for mili tary ceremonials in Connecticut has a serious and yet a proud significance. Twenty-four years ago to-day four Connecticut regiments, the Eighth, Eleventh, Fourteenth and Six teenth, a brigade under the command of Gen eral Harland of Norwich, participated in the battle of Antietam, two of the reeiments, new and untrained, received that day their "baptism of fire," and the brigade losing 602 killed and wounded. On no other dav did Connecticut make so great a sacrifice. Hart ford shared in the deaths, the wounds and the honor. And so from the beginning has it shared in peace and war in whatever has gone to the setting forth and maintenance of reonb- lican government. The records of history may safely be challenged to parallel the lit tle republic of Connecticut in whatever goes to the making of a liberal, free, progressive. honorable and steady government. It is a great satisfaction to know that in that his tory the town of Hartford has for two hun dred and fifty years borne a part which, in each successful generation, according to the light, the knowledge and the ability of the day and time, has been at least abreast of the best in the love and promotion of all things good for the liberties and duties of man kind. General Hawley spoke of the scholarly, pious 1 nomas Mooter, who led his congrega tion or one hundred or both sexes and all ages across the wilderness in the early sum mer of 1636 two hundred and fifty years ago and who in a sermon delivered May 31, 1638, laid down a platform of civil govern ment which reads well in the light of to day's experience. The speech then gave a compact historical review regarding the colo ny of Connecticut in 1633, which consisted only of Windsor, Hartford and Wetbers- held. The government of these politically comoinea towns was a pure ideal democracy with apparent unconsciousness of superior power or authority whatever, save that of the divinity. With further remarking about the charter of King Charles, which modified Hooker's platform of civil law but little, and that in form, not in substance, General Hawley spoke of the attack on Sumter and bow the North sprung to arms to save the Union, and of Hart ford's contributions of regiments and men to the war. Hartford alone furnished one-tenth of the three months troops and about one-twelfth of the three years and other soldiers. General Hawley then re ferred to the tender ot $500,000 by the Hartford banks to Governor Buckingham for war purposes when Sumter was fired upon and to the fact that Hartford's expenditures for bounties, premiums, commutation and support of families amounted to over $269, 000; also more than 4,000 men 6f Hartford bore arms in the national cause, nearly 400 of whom died in the service. The speaker then alluded to the more prominent of the Hartford men who were distinguished in the service, and with pleasure noted also that the monument was erected to both soldiers and sailors of the war. In eloquent words Gene ral Hawley now alluded to the opening of the great civil war, following as it did so long a period of profound peace and with such a tremendous issue at stake. Gladstone even believed that this country was doomed to be a divided country, and the outlook for a southern confederacy, whose corner stone was slavery, looked ominous to all but the bravest and the most patriotic. The speak er then graphically spoke of the uprising of the North at the call of liberty and nnion, and the great patriotic fire in the North. Well did Lincoln, after Gettysburg, attrib ute the result to God, and . now, as I look back, I fail to find one, no matter what he once thought, who laments the disappear ance of human slavery. And the doctrine of secession, submitted to the last and most awful court, was condemned to death. Pro ceeding, the speaker said: War is indeed the most tremendous calam ity imposed by a mysterious divinity when one thinks only of its losses and its suffer ings. But it is not wholly withont its com pensations. Strife is the law of the universe out of which are to evolve, in God's good time, better men and a better world. Better a war than a nation sunk in slavish submis sion to wrong or a stupid or silent spectator of wrongs inflicted upon another. A just war like ours clears away centuries of cob webs and gives us conceptions of the possi bilities of human nature which never before entered into our philosophy. It arouses the people from their low, groping and delving mack of selfishness, "All that man hath will he give for his life" saith Satan. But such a contest as ours teaches us better. It is glorious to see mankind by the million with eyes fixed on something outside or, above and beyond themselves, eager to give for it all that they have, even life itself. In many things there was never a war the like of it. The Union mustered the largest armies that ever trod the globe. In May, 1864, a million and a quarter men moved at the word ot urant. Mr. uncoin declined to "obtrude npon him restraints or constraints" or to learn his plans, and said, "If there be anything wanted which is within my power to give do not tail to let me Know it. Ana now with a brave army and a just cause, may God sustain yon." It was not only the great est army of the world, but the best equipped, the best transported, the best armed, clothed and fed. and it has been the best pensioned. The deeds of armies of the olden, or even of the modern times, in Europe, trampling upon all the laws of decency and humanity in their dealineswith the captured enemy or the non- combatants around them, palsy the pen of the historian. Wherever - the armies of the United States went they never forgot that they were fighting with men who were and ought to have remained our brethren and were to be brought back to the great family. ', As far as possible the rights of property were respected. The destitute were fed by the ten thousand. Christian associa tions, sanitary associations, freedmen's bu reaus. preachers and teachers so far as possi ble possessed the land as the army marched over it. Ana wnen tne nnai aay or su omis sion came at Appomattox General Lee said "General Grant's treatment of the Army of Northern Virginia Is withont a parallel iu the history of the civilized world." Uonns cations ceased, there were no executions for treason, no ungovernable army remained to dominate the government and justify the prophecies of our enemies, nor did roving bands of guerrillas harass a weary people. The rapid dissolution, the joyous and peace ful dispersion of the army was only equalled in glory by the manner ot its assembling. What was won by the war? Whatever was it is to be sacred forever against viola tion or profanation. It was purchased at a great price. These things 1 have stated to an audience largely composed of confederate soldiers, receivine their hearty assent. An indissoluble union was restored. There may be revolution, but there can never be secession. Universal liberty was established, human slavery vanished. By constitution and statute, the equality of rights has been established in the ballot box the jury box, the witness box and the cart ridge box. There is but one theory of political socie ty. In theory, at least, there shall hereafter be no master and no slave, no noble, no peasant, no dominant class, no inferior class every man has a right to be all that he can be. Failure to maintain these things would be a greater shame than would have been a cowardly submission to rebellion at the out set. We have universal liberty, but we have law as well. For without the absolute ru premacy of law there can be no liberty. Uni versal suffrage, though the law be as old as the organization ot Connecticut in lodo still has arrayed against it doubts and skep ticism, little openly, but much secretly or quietly. It has come to stay. It is the end which modern progress was sure to reach It has come by unforeseen ways and unex pectedly. Though it has its dangers and imposes great labor upon those who seek to lead the people in the paths of true govern ment, let ns continue in the cheerful faith that it will justify itself. In other lands centuries of oppression bred a constitutional congenital hatred ot the thing called government. Men became its enemies because it was government. They. taught conspiracy and assassination and in surrection and passed their doctrines to their children. There is no room for such teach ing in the republic of America. The appeal of an insurrection or a rebel lion must necessarily be decided by a major ity of the people, and that appeal can as well be made through the ballot box as ty the rifle. That which cannot win with the ballot can not win with the musket. The majority of forces is the same as the majority of ballots, We have free speech and a free press and in the end tne right will come uppermost There is a special majesty of law in the re public We, the people, make the law, and we, the people, will see it enforced. This is a government of, by and for the average man. But those who, for whatever reason of natural ability, training or experience, or what they believe to be a greater love for the country, think themselves its better friends, are thereby bound to show themselves its most active supporters. - It behooves-the soldier to put himself among the best ot the citizens in seeing that .government does all 'things well. For he 'and his wife and his children and his friends know something of the sacrifices made to save it. The war taught statesmen to have faith in the people; to trust the general and common man; to believe that he comprehends great truths and has instinctive judgment of jus tice and high duties; that lie has patience and fidelity and the patriotism that is will ing to die for a country and be reported among the "missing" and "not accounted for." The good soldier does not boast. He thanks God that he lived in this time and was counted one among the two and a quar ter millions. It is a precious possession for him and his children. Nothing can rob him of it now. But he remembers how many had a work as indispensable as the soldier and did as well. The fathers and mothers and wives to whom every day of the war was sorrow and anxie ty, while the soldier had sometimes weeks of light duty, rest and pleasure. He remem bers the Union men of the South at whose doors the rebellion raged while husband or father escaped through the swamps and mountains to join the Union army. He re members the black man, by whom no escap ing soldier or" Union commander seeking a pilot was ever betrayed. Likewise the many foreigners who came here for the love of the cause, which was theirs and all men's as well as ours. Also the sturdy men who governed the towns or filled the legislatures and congresses and dared impose upon the people great taxes, debts and labors. The soldiers from Hartford could say that their dear friends at home were in no whit lacking, but were among the first and fore most in all the good work. Among the earnest ot its kind was the Marttord Soldiers' Aid association composed of geod women wives, daughters and sisters of soldiers that disbursed several tens of thousands of dol lars with judicious discrimination and by the blessing of good words and prayers did more. On the 19th of July, 1862, the town voted $100,000-to promote enlistments and grant aid to soldiers' families. July 23,1863, the town voted sauu.UOO for the relief of de pendent families of enlisted men. And there were many examples of large-souled men who took upon themselves the welfare and comfort of the needy or personally dis tributed their bonnty to assist enlistments, The givers were blessed as well as the re ceivers. The growth in richness of soul that comes of good deeds did not cease with the war. Of it has come the vote erecting the monument we dedicate to-day. We are glad that it is not paid for by subscriptions labo riously collected, but was ordered by vote in the good old-fashioned town meeting to be paid for by the usual taxation. It is an alto gether useless thing, I suppose. It does not help the bridge. We do not see what any- ooay can do with it save to walk between its towers. It is as useless as the rainbow or the glories of the sunset, but I think it is the best investment Hartford has made since she gave her treasure to save the Union. To some it will always be silent: to others, sue cessors of those who made a nation in 1776 and saved it in 1861r.it will be forever saying cheerily, "Remember! Remember!" It has nothing else to do now for centuries. May uoa Diess it! Fellow Citizens: On the 19th of November, 1863. the .great national cemetery at Gettysburg was dedi cated. Standing on the summit of Cemetery tiidge Abraham Lincoln, his sad eves looking far away beyond the graves and the beautiful hills and valleys, placed in the hearts of the nation and the literature of the world an immortal dedication. It has taken its per manent place in tne liturgy ot these occa sions. ijet us renew the vows he there ad ministered. LINCOLN AT GETTYSBURG. 'Four score and seven years ago our fath ers brought torth upon this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. .Now we are engaged In a great civil war. testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of it as the final resting place of those who here gave their lives that the nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this. 'But in a larger sense we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who straggled ' here have consecrated it far above our power to add or de tract. The world will little note nor long remember what . we sat here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us, the living, rather to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they have thus far so nobly carried on. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us that from these nonorea dead we take increased devo tion to the cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve that those dead shall not have died in vain, that this nation shall, under God. have a new birth of freedom and that government of toe people, by the people and for the people shall not perish from the earth. ...

There was a lack of decorations on the streets through which the procession passed. which was due, no doubt, to stormy weather of the day previous, which did not give the citizens an opportunity to display their dec orative art.

The memorial arch stands at the southern extremity of the bridge which spans Park river and is the direct entrance or driveway to Bushnell Park. It is thirty feet wide and springs from two massive round towers, one on either side. These towers are each sixty seven feet in circumference and rise to a height of over 130 feet, terminating in coni cal roofs, which increase the apparent height of the memorial and add cousiderably to the artistic effect by the variety they give to the sky line.
