Faumingios, Jan. 5, 1884.—-Agreeable
to my promise to you I forward you a few
items with regerd to horses at Faiming
ton. To commence with I have seen
weaher a little more balmy and a little
more pleasant than this Saturday morn
ing with the thermometer at 30 degrees
below, but it is a grand time to look at
horses. You do not have to bore the I
• :r with a request that this one and
i : A out to tha halter, or hitched up
aofsd to ouit your convenience. You
?ay to the owner as he asks would you like
toe this hitched up? Oh, no, life is to
f^hortandl know he is threatened with
speed and bis breeding is so good that he
car. not help but trot. You are perfectly
'jed to see him in his stall
to see him uncovered just for a
moment, or to see one-half dczen turned
lo,-t out in the field and see them play
; f ever a horse shows aft* well it is in a
gojd zero morning; but at the same time
you want to be encased in a good warm
fcr coat, cap, scsrf, and feet well protect
'.Vith thi3 introductory I will ask you to
ilhmeone mile northwest of Farm
on to the breeding farm of Porter
Mnrfin, well known in our state, not only
ireeder but a trainer and handler of
horses. At the head of Mr. Martin's stud
last j ear stood Archer's Almont, by Al
monr, firBt dam Pearly Leonard by Ameri-,
Slay. A horse well known for a young
He has a record of

v,;:cn be was G years old. Alraont
i '.en well patronized in this vicinity,
fo- Hie past three years and soon ws shall
see how speedy his youngsters are. They
certainly look premising at this date.
Almont has been retired from tho stud and
has been placed in the han^s of Mr. McMil
of An stir, where barring accidents, he
e .-ent for record. Knowing ones
expect him to place a iow record to his
credit. Mr. McMillan also takes with him
two very fine colts by Almont, coming two
years-old this spring, which will be han
died for speed and will be entered in the
two-year-old races the ooming season. The
da jj; of these colts are pac9rs as well as
their grand dams, but their gait is purely
trotting. If ever there were ooltsthat
promised well, these are the ones, and we
say to thoee that calculate to pnttwo-year
■f.yl-o laio training to not forget
that they have got to have colts that are
sure enough trotters.
So much for the three that Mr. Martin
has put into the hands of the trainer. Mr.
Martin will place Administrator at ths
head of his stud. He was got by Admin
istrator. Dam by .Miner's Denmark. This
etallion will be eight years old next spring
i=sagoodone, and his get, so far,
.iusewell. He is also a fine trotter
himself. His eldest oolts are now four
years old. I noticed last soason an extra
good one owned by the heavy man at
Daudas. E. T. Archibald, of Dundas,
also has a crack pair. Another good ono
and as good as any I think is tho ooit
owned by Mr. Elliott near the custom
house in St. Paul. Mr. Martin has some
fine ones by him that will soon mature.
There is no question but that Administrator
will make a big season. Mr. Martin is
wintering twenty-four of the horse kind,
and the person that wants a good road
horse, as well as a speedy one, that cannot
suit himself at Mr, Martin's 1b hard to
euit. X.
About the Facers.
[Turf, Field and Farm, Jan. 4.]
Fashions change in horses and their
gaits as well a=* in other things. Goodj old
Hiram Woodruff said: "A trotting horse
is so much more valuable than a paoer,
that if I had one of the latter that could
go in 2:20,1 should watoh carefully for the
chance to make a trotter of him." Aud
now we have it stated that a prominent
western stable proposes to let a 2:20 trof
ter go baok to her old way of pacing. Tho
Iro.ter, as in Hiram's day, is still the more
valuable, but rhe side-wheeler has oertainly
picked up wonderfally in public estima
tion in the past three or four years. After
each shining lights as Hero, Oneida
Chief, James K. Polk and Pocahontas
had illumined the turf at various periods;
there were few bright stars iu the paoing
firmament, and a cloud obscured this sport
for a long time, but Sleepy George, Bay
Sallie, Sweetzer and Clinker revived mat
ter?, and then Sleepy Tom, Rowdy Boy,
Lucy and Mattie Hunter got up a boom in
1879 that has lasted ever sinoe, so that now
the pacing race of the Grand circuit is one
of its principal features, and the pacer
promises to take a more commanding po
sition than ever during the ooming year.
If a pacer is fast he is generally very
fast, and the past season has shown quite
a number of rapid goers. In fac, they
compare more than favorably with the
trotters, for if we take the foremost six of
of each in 1883 we find the record as fol
Jo'.iaeton 2:10 2:10% Jay Eye Soe.
Buffalo Girl....2:121^ 2:15>| PbalJas.
Richball 2:12,% 2:16 Trinkett.
Flora Bell 2:13% 2:16V 4 ' Wilson.
Fuller 2:13% 2:16% St. Julien.
Gem 2:18% 2:17 Majolica,4c
In addition to the above half dozen,
We-etmont paced in 2:15^, and Billy S. in
2-.16;?4, while the others to beat 2:20 were
Eddie D., (2:17^), Jim Jewell (2:19^),
and Princess, (2:19^). The two most
busy during the year were Richball and
Westmont. Each commenced early and
kept it up late, passing
through an arduous campaign, many
of the races in whioh the former wa3 en
gaged being split up into several heats.
Itiohbail credited with fifty-seven winning j
heats in 2:30 or better, all but eight of j
whioh were better than 2:25,and thirty-four j
better than 2:20. In number of heats, j
Westmont follows With thirty-seven, but in i
many of his races the son of Almont so!
far overshadowed his competiors that the '■
contests were decided in straight heats.
These two, with Johnson, should make a
great trio the coming season. We think
that neither has got to the end of his
.'haher, and if Johnson does not lower his ,
own time (and we think him quite capable
IIo'.Dg so,) some other horee wi'.l prot
y do it for him.
'. 8. Campbell thinks that in Bichball he
has the fastest horse in the world, and in
support of his opinion eay3 he will matoh
him against any trotter or pacer for from
$5,000 to §10,000 ajside, the track to be
mutually agreed upon. He and the pacer
Fritz have been out on grass in Texas ainc9
the Fort Worth meeting and will be taken
up after the holidays. Here is a chance
for some enterprising secretaries to open
negotiations. Even if none of the owners
of fast stock care to make Buch a matoh, a
large enough purse might be offered by
same association for Jay-Eye-See,JohDson
and Richball, or any two of these.
The Spirit of the Times.
This well known and valuable paper
gives the following programme of what
it will do in the next three months:
A rare feast is in store for those who ait
at the table of The Spirit during the next
three months. While all oar regular de
partments are maintained in their fell
vigor, the firat edition of the new year will
be noteworthy for the introduction of sev
eral Bpecial featureB. Chief among them
is, "These Oar Aotors," a series of biogra
phioal and aneedatal sketches of our fa
mous aotors and dramatists, compiled and
edited by George J. Manaon. These
sketches are copyrighted, and will subse
quently be published in book form. Next
•omes "The Crnise of the Waterwitoh," a
yachting story, fresh as the breezes, and
bright as the sunlit waves of the Great lakes
on which this voytge was made. Then
Col. Thomas Pioton, the veteran jour
nalist, the man of microsoopio memory,
will resume his charming sketches of "old
time" New York, beginning next week with
Mitchell's Olympic theater. The devotees
of the running turf will welcome "Vigi
lant's" series of "Winning Sires," commen

let by a marvelously small majority. Trot
ting turf smen will find a series of interst
ing and instructive tables, beginning with
2:30 trotters of 1882, followed by 2:25 trot
ters, the live 2:30 list, and the complete
2:30 catalogue, arranged under their sires.
For the amateur athletes we shall furnish
oomplete tables of best-on-record perform

The Breeding of Arab,
The five year old bay gelding Arab, that
made a record of 2:24^ the past season,
has all along been • accepted as by Elec
tioneer, out of Lady Hamilton, but it now
seems from the California Breeder and
Sportsman that he is rerJly by Gen. Benton.
Thr.t paper says: In 1877 F. S. M&ione
sent r. number of mares to be brad to the
Palo Al!o stallions, two of them being
Nettie George, by Norfolk, and her daugh
ter, Lady Hercules. From the name it is
probable tho latter was by imp. Hercules,
though one C2n only infer that this was
the oaee. Mr. Maions had a mare at Mr.
Corbiti's ranch called Lady Hamilton,
which was bred to one of Mr.
Oorbitt's stallions. A bill was
r.ted and paid by Mr. Malone for the
service of the stallions at Palo Alto, and
one of the items was a charge of $100 for
the services of General Benton to Lady
lies, a»>d the tother items, in all
amounting to $700, servioes of Electioneer,
General Benton find Mohawk Chief. Now
fur. Malone avers that Arab is from Lady
Meroulos, that he saw him when a suckling
at tho aide of hi* dam, and noted par
ticularly the mark? which distinguished
him. We have not a partiole of doubt
that this is oorr*aet, and that being granted;
ths bill rendered fixes the paternity on
General "Benton. And still there
Is a chance that Lady Hercules
was bred to Electioneer, and
in making the transcript there
was a clerical error. The testimony of the
books and that of the stud groom will dear
this point, and now that the maternity has
been absolutaly fixed, there can be little
trouble in completing the chain. The
strong point in Arab being an Electioneer
is his resemblance to the colts of that
horse and the divergence from the general
type of the Bentons. The conformation is
so similar to that of the colts of the form
er that it strikes a superficial observer,
and then again, the thoroughbred blood of
his dam may have so modified the charac
teristics of the Bentons as to give the lines
cf the maternal ancestry.
Goldsmith Maid, 2:14.
John B. Deoker of Deokertown, Sussex
county, N. J., recently discoursed as fol
lows concerning the early days of Gold
smith Maid: When I owned the Maid she
was just one of the worst pieces of horse
flesh as a young filly)that I ever laid eyeB
on. Only for exercise she'd jump every
fence on the farm. I tried to take some
of the spirit out of her by plowiDg corn
with her, but it was no nee. Her dam
was an Abdallah mare, a half Bister toO!
Rysdyk's Hambletonian, and she could tr t
a full mile better than '40 to an . ,d
fashioned road wagon, for I drove her le
peatediy under that notch myself. She foa1.-
ed Goldsmith Maid to Edsall's Hambletoni
an in 1857, and, as I said before, the young
thing was wild as a hawk. I sold her for
$350 to Thoma3 Brigham and J. H. Deok
er, cf Newburg. They in turn sold her
for $600 to William Denton, known as
"Jersey Bill," and from him Allen Gold
smith purchased her for $900 and a wsgon.
Goldsmith hired Bill Bodine, of Middle
town, to train her, and he and his help had
their hands full, I tell you. It used to
i take four of the boys to hook her np, and
several times she nearly killed Bodine.
Bat when he tamed her she gave trouble
no longer* and afterward W.H. Doble pur
chased her for $5,000 in partnership with
"'Budd." Her snbsequent triumphs and
sale to Henry N. Smith are matters of
comparatively recent history.

Madame Rumor says Bob Miles will be

The great ra ce mare Thora, the property
of Mr. Charles Reed, Fairview Stud, Tenn ,
after breaking down in the Louisville Cup
ths past spring, was bred to imp. Fechter,
and is now heavy with foal. Thora's baby
will be watched with a great deal of inter
est, and it is to be hoped good luck will
attend the mare. Henlopon, by Aristidee,
the half sister of Thora, both being out of
Susan Ann, by Lexington, has also been
bred to Fechter.
The bay horse FoxhalJ, the properly of
Mr. J. R. Scene, New York, has [recently
arrived at the Ley borne Grange Stud
Farm, the property of Mr.Thosar^ Phillips
and will be used there as a stallion. Fox
hail was foaled in 1878 by King Alfonzo,
dam Jamaica, by Lexington; 2d dam Fan
ny Ludlow, by imp, Eclipse, out of Mollie
Jackson, by Vandal. As a race horse he
waa one of the best that have appeared on
the English turf for many years, and his
stout breeding should make him a very de
sirable stallion for English mares. Tne
turf career of Foxhall was a brilliant one,
and in the stud, with proper opportunities
it is reasonable to expect him to be one of
the leading sires of England.
Spirit of the Times; It is well known
that Mr. W. H. Vanderbilt and Mr. Frank
Work, in consequence of a disagreement

the papers of his father a due bill cf

Boston Herald: Mill Boy and Blondme
have reoently been joined by a stable com
panion. On Christmas morning, Mr.
John Shepard, of this city, looked in on
his double-team favorites, and was aston
ished to find a strange horse in one of the
stalls of his private stable. On closer in
spection, he found on the horse a oard
bearing the greeting, "A Merry Christ

quisition to his stable was the beautiful bay
stallion Harry Rolf, 6 years old, 15% hands
high, Bired by Lambert, and raised in
Waterville, Me. The horse has no record,
but is said to have show a mile better than
2:25, and a year or two ago Mr. Shepsrd
offered $6,000 for him. Harry Rolf will in
all probability be driven double with Mill

great son of Longfellow, winner of the
Blue Ribbon at Lexington, the Kentuoky
Derby at Louisville, the Hindoo Stakes at
Latonia and of the l'linois Derby at Chi

was suddenly brought to a close at Long
Branch through the wrench of a tendon,
is now taking gentle work at Harrods
burgh, Ky., and hopes are entertained ihat
that he will again be seen at the post. The
fore leg has been blistered four times
and support thus given to the sprung
oord, and the horse goes sound. He is
walked, jogged and cantered every day on
so't ground, and has a keen relish for the
work. He will not be started unless his
owners are pretty confident of his ability
to win, because they do not wish to send
him to the stud a beaten and disgraced
horse. If he continues to improve, how
ever, there will be no lack of confidence.

The First Regiment and Its Ten Companies
—The Emmet Z.I<bt Artillery—Meeting:
•of the National Guard State Association
This Week.
The First Beglment.
The legislature of 1883 passed a law de
nominated the "Military Code," by the pro
visions of whioh the National Guard was
declared to consist of two regiments of in
fantry and a battery of artillery. 3y an
order cf the commander-in-chief, issued in
February, the Fir3t battalion was desig
nated as the First regiment and the Sec
ond battalion as the Second regiment. As
the latter is composed of companies lo
cated in the southern p»rt of the state we
shall confine this artiole to the First regi
ment. Ths First battalion, from which, fie
we have already etated, the First regiment
was organized, was formed in February,
1882, of the following companies, viz.:
The Minneapolis Light infantry, the Min
neapolis zouaves, the St. Paul guards and
the Allen Light guard. An election fcr a
major and for stall officers was held on
the 23d of February, 18»2, and resulted in
the election of Capt. W. B. Bend, of the St.
Paul guards, ai major, Lieut. 8. A. Sims,
of the Minneapolis Light infantry, as ad
jutant, Private Jas. Davenport, Jr., of the
St. Pan! guards, as assistant surgeon, and
private J. K. Metzger of the Minneapolis
Light infantry as quartermaster. Subse
quently Adjutant Sims resigned and W.
J. Sonnen wai eleoted. In 1882 the Min
neapolis Zouaves finding themselves una
ble to keep up with the duties developing
upon them, asked to be mastered out of
the servise. Their request was gianted
by the commander in chief, and another
company was organized in Minneapolis
to tt>se their place and battalion designa
tion, (Company B). At about the same
time an independent company in tit. Paul
applied for admission to the National
Guard and was attached to the First bat
talion as Company E. In July. 1882, the
battalion went into camp at White Bear
lake, and won general praiso ior its con
duotand for the progress it made in d*ill
and discipline. It having become evid*-ui
that an additional field officer was nee d,
the commander in chief ordered sn tac
tion for a lieutenant colonel to whioh
office Major Bend was promoted, and Pri -
j vate C. W. Johnson, of Campany ii, was
! eleoted Major. In November, 1882, a
company was organized at Fergus Falls
by Captain George W. Boyington and waa
attached to tho First battalion as Com
pany F. In February, 1S83, a
company was organized at Red
Wing and a company at Litchfield,
both of which were assigned to the First
as companies A and H, making eight com
panies, and raising the battalion to a reg
iment. An eleotion of field and staff offi
cers was held February 28, 1883, with the
following result:
Colonel—W. B. Bend.
Lieut. Colonel —C. W. Johnson.
Major—G. M. Naylor,
Adjutant—W.J. Scnen.
Surgeon—J"s. Davenport, Jr.
Assistant Surgeon—R. J. Fitzgerald.
Chaplain—M. N. Gilbert.
Quartermaster —J. K. Metzger.
Judge Advocate —H. H. Horten,
all of whom now hold thier commissions.
In Idaroh company I was organized in
Minneapolis, and oompany K, in Stillwa
ter, making a full regiment of ten compa
nies. A band of twenty piecas was also
mustered, us the First Regiment band, and
in July last,the regiment, to the number
of 486 men, pitched tents at White Bear
lake. Col. Gaines Lawson, Twenty-fifth
Infantry, U. S. A., was detailed by General
Terry to take station at the camp, and to
report fully on the drill and discipline
of the regiment. Colonel Lawson made
his report, which was xrabiiehed at the
time in the Globe, in which he aocorded
high praise to the First regiment for its
soldierly qualities, its drill and discipline,
and for the marked progress ii made dur
ing its week in camp.
By a return made to the adjutant gen
eral a few day3 ago, tho present strength
of the regiment appears as 59', officers
and men. Owing to ths regular weekly
company drills, and to the officers' schools
and the division drill, which are held by
the colonel, the regiment is in a Ir'gh state
of effioienoy,and should it be called upon lor
the suppression of a riot would give a good
account of itself. In order that it may
respond with the utmost celerity to any
requisition of tho oammpuder-in-chief,
Colonel Bend reoently issued orders that
the members of the several companies
shall repair at once to their respective
armories whenever the signal fifty-three is
sounded on designated steam whistles, thus
saving the delay incidental to sending
notices to the houses of the members.
The non-commissioned staff is compos
ed of: Sergeant major, I. S. Robertson;
hospital steward, J. N. Dow; quartermas
ter sergeant, C. M. Palmer; commissary
sergeant, Frank Keogh; and color ser
geants, J. E. Austin and W. M. Gregg.
One reason for the success of the First
regiment is its thorough organization and
the e-prit de corps whioh prevails in it.
With ten companies engaged in a friendly
rivalry, and with a commandant of long
experience in the National guard, who de
votes a great deal of time and attention to
tho regiment, it must necessarily progress
rapidly. The splendid appearance which
it made in camp was greatly enhanced by
all the companies being uniformed alike,
and the piebald appearance incidental to
varying uniforms was wanting.
The following sketches of the different
companies will prove interesting:

Company D, of St. Paul, was organized
as the "Allen Light guard," Feb. 10, :88I,
and was mustered into tho state service
Aprii 4, '81. when it numbered forty-seven
men. The first officers ware 0. A. Bisgler,
captain; Charles F. Pusch, first lieutenant,
and John B. Jaoobson, seoond lien tenant.
Since its organization the company ha-s
bad two captains, Biegler having resigned
July 12, '81, when he was succeeded by the
present captain, Ed S. Bean. Taers has
been no ohxuges of first lieutenants, but
five second lieutenants, viz: J. P. Jaokson,
Ed S. Bean, Fred Hester, Chas. E. Grant
and Geo. J. Mitsoh, she latter having now
held the office about two years. The oill
cera and also its first and seoond sergeants
are, eaeh in his grade or rank, the seniors
of the regiment. At present there
are in the oompany only nine of
tho«e whose names are on
the muster roll of April 24, '81. The com
pany now numbers seventy men, and be
gins the year with a drill squad of four
teen recruits, to be Increased to about
twenty-fiv* during the month. Notwith
standing its full ranks the company
vigorously enforced its rule of dropping
from the roll every unfaithful or inattent
ive member. This company participated
in the two ;»nnual encampments at White
Bear and has engaged in two competitive
prize drills. At Faribault, July 4, '82, it
was awarded the first prize of $200, and at
Minneapolis August 28, '83, it was award
ed the first prize of $400. It is the wealth
iest and best equipped company in the
guard, owning fatigue and dress uniforms
and overcoats ftr all its members
and ready to equip recruits
as fast as enlisted. It is ono of the four
companies quartered In the new armory
on Sixth and Ei change streets, where its
room i3 nioely furnished and carpeted. A
company library has been founded with a
good number of books, and altogether D
company is especially attractive to young
men desirous of military training and as
sociation with a live organization.
Company E, also of St. Paul, was form
ed from,an independent company, origin
ally composed v»hoHy of quite yonng men
and which wa~ for a year or more cora
manded by Caps. Moore. Its present of
ficers are, Captain William Blakely, First
Lieutenant W. W. Rico and Second Lieu
tenant L. S. Qaonce. It is a favorite com
pany in the regiment and is one of the
four having quarters in trie Sixth street
Company F WE3 organized at F-srgns
Falls in November, 1882. with G. W. Boy
ington, captain; A. E. Weathorstone, first
lientenant, and G. E. Estes, seoond lieuten
ant. In April, 1883, Captain Bcyington
resigned and M. E. Clapp, a prominent
lawyer, was elected in his place. In May,
Lientenant Weatherstone resigned, and
Sergeant F. W. Buruham wrb chosen first
lieutenant. The company is very strong
and had over fifty men in camp last sum
mer. It has suffered for the want of
a good armory, but the oity
of Fergus Falls, has recently erected a
town hull, and has given the oompany the
U6e of a large room in the upper part,which
will enable it to drill in winter, as well as
in summer, and to maintain a high standard
of efficiency.
Company G was organized at Red Wing,
in February, 1883, with A. P. Pierce, cap
tain; A. E. Kempe, first lieutenant, and
G. W. Davi3, second lientenant. This
company has made great progress sinoe its
organization, and at tho competitive drill,
held in Red Wing this fall, astonished
everyone by its proficiency.
Company H wa* organized at Litchfield,
in February, 1883, with J. W. Laavett,
captain; J. H. Morris, first lientenant, and
A. T. Kierner, seoond Heu'enBut. At the
encampment last summer, this company
was noted for its good conduct, and for its
prompt rersponse to all calls made upon it,
as well as for ih drill.
Company I was organized at Mnne
apolis, in March, 1883, with C. Mo. C.
Reeve, captain; J. D. Osgood, first lieu
tenant, and J. B. Kidder, seoond lieutenant.
It is the largest oompany in Minneapolis,
and composed of suuie of the leading
citizens. It has suffered lately
for want of armory,
but with the completion ef tno building
just erected en Eight*, r1!--.;; ■ mpanies
A. B. and I. it has every p.- ■■■? -^ortu
nity to become a first ciaes ujmpany.
Its o2ioe:B are thoroughly in earnest,
and by spring, company I will be able to
hold its own with any of its associates.
Company K was organized at Stillwater
in March, 1883, with B. W. Merry, Captain
Elbert Nexsen first lieutenant and W. J.
Barstow, second lieutenant. The city of
Stillwater bonght the old bcilding of the
First Presbyterian church, moved it to an
adjacent lot, and fitted it up for Company
K, thus gi?ing it a fine drill room. AI
tnough the youngest company in the regi
ment, this company is rapid'y becoming
efficient, and has reoently been ordered by
the commander in chief to hold itself in
readiness to respond te any call that may
ba made for its services oy Warden Reed
in case of trouble in the stats prison.
This St. Paui organization was estab
tablished in March, 1882, under Captain
C, M. MacO^rthy, to whom the captaincy
was offered at the outset and to whose per
severing zeal is mainly due the present
efficiency of the battery. The first two
years of the company's existence were try
ing one and it was for some lime a ques
tion whether or not it would be accepted
by the 3tate as a permanent organization.
It was first formed as an infantry com
pany, but the number of such companies
allowed by law being then filled, it was
reorganized as an artillery force, ihongh
for gome time without field pieces or any
equipments of its branch of the service
the company was held together till ai la^-t
it is one of the most prosperous of the
military organizations of the state.

highly complimented by the Un;.ted States
army officers who acted as judges on the
occasion. During the last sum
mer encampment at New Clm the
battery attracted a great deal of
attention and was reoeived with enthu
siasm wherever it appeared. Aii9r the
sham battle, '"u which it had a prominent
part, it received a high compliment from
Governor Hubbard, who declared he had
never seen a better drilled battery in or
oat of active service, Col. L^waon, of the
regalar a^my, who was at the camp as in
spector on the part of the national war de
partment, in his official report, spoke of
the Emmet Light artillery es "a fine body
of men, presenting a very eoldierly ap
pearance and ably commanded."
The roster of the battery now numbers
forty-five officers and men, the officers be
ing as follows: Captain, C. M. McCarthy;
first lieutenant, D.O'Keefe; second lieuten
ant, R. J.Markoe;first sergeant, J.H. Shea;
quartermaster sergeant, A. D. McLeod;
ordnanoe sergeant, William McTeague.
The men composing the battery, most of
tham Irish by birth or descent, are almost
to a man remarkable for their fine physi
cal appearance—most of them being of
powerful build and capable of great
endurance. The organization has no
debts and has lately done
some good recruiting work. It hsi
its room at the armory en Sixth aud Ex

of our citizens.
