The boys who died when the Maine was blown up in Havana harbor we honor as much as those who died at Gettysburg, and th# boys who died on the Tuscania will be honored by us as much as it they died on the blood-stained fields of France. Died Aa American* Should. ?Those who died on the Tus cania died as Americans should die. There was no panic. They stood at: attention while the vessel sank I deeper and deeper into the Atlan-1 tic. singing 'America* and 'The Star Spangled Banner.' "It has been well said that America asks for the names of these j lads?every one of them. Though j the boys have perished, their I names are not to die. Those names, humble or proud, will be inscribed I upon no less august a page than the book of the history of human liberty; and the tears that fall, upon the page will not be tears of weakness. "Some day I hope to see ? suit able monument erected to the mem- | ??ry of the brave boys who died on the Tuscania. and that their bodies will lie at Arlington Cemetery near ? those of the brave heroes of the!

Believing they ought to re- j ceive the same honors as those who died on the Maine, X have intro duced ?* bill to give them equal | honor, and hope some time to see it a reality. fcaUcr Falla T# 1 adersUnd.

Ever since May 30. 1902, Mr. Whitney has observed the custom of thus honoring the memories of those who had died fighting for the flag at sea. and each time for six t<en successive years he hss con structed a small boat with his own hands to be uttef for this purpose. Each ye^r sinee Mr. Whitney con ceived the idea the President hat contributed a share of the floral of ferings. until the custom has be cirne reiogr.ixed as a part of the regular order at the White House. The first boat built by Mr. Whit ney was 15 feet long and christen ed the "Oregon" out of respect for the famous "Bulldog of the Navy" which created so much havoc with the Spanish fleet at the battle of Santiago. Tho same relative size lias been maintained in subsequent constructions, but each year the boat his been given a different name. This year the boat went to its watery grave as the "Miriam," and by this time has heen broken up on some friendly reef and its burden cast on the bosom of the broad At lantic.
