eight months one man had done nothing else
but follow the forger-physician and the chase
had been to all parts of the United States,
Canada and Mexico. The charge on which Dr.
Moody was arrested was the forgery of
a 9300 draft, which he passed on a Washington

Discussed at a Congress of Distinguished
Medical Men.
The eleventh annual congress of the Ameri
can Laryngological association began their
sessions in the ladies' parlors at the Arlington
this morning. This is one of the most dis
tinguished associations in the medical frater
nity, ranking third among all the associations
of specialists in the National medical congress.
It was organized eleven years ago, when
medical science had made comparatively little
progress in the investigation and treatment
of diseases of the throat ana nose. Since then
their labors have brought the knowledge and
treatment of these diseases to a state of almost
perfection. The membership of the associa
tion is limited to fifty and some distinguishing
service in the advancement of science in this
specialty is a requisite qualification to member
ship. The diseases which they treat are what
Dr. Sir Morell McKenzie, of London, who is an
honorary member of the association, refers to
in his work as the "American disease."
At the opening session this morning the
president, Dr. Ethelbert Carroll Morgan, of
this city, occupied the chair, with Dr. D.
Brvson Delevan, secretary. Among the other
distinguished members of the profession pres
ent were Dr. William C. Glasgow, of St. Louis;
Dr. Chas. E. Sajous, of Philadelphia, the first
and second vice-presidents; Dr. Franklin H.
Hooper, of Bobton; Frederick I. Knight, of
Boston; Harrison Allen, of Philadelphia; C. E.
Bean, of St. Paul; S. H. Chapman, of New
Haven; Wm. H. Daly, of Pittsburg; T. A. De
Bloi*. of Boston; J. II. Hartman, of Baltimore:
F. W. Hinkel. of Buffalo; L. Johnston, of
Baltimore; C. H. Knight, of New York; W. S.
Langmaid, of Boston; J. N. Mackenzie, of
Baltimore; G. W. Major, of Montreal: J. C.
Mulhall, of St. Louis, and J. O. Boe, of
dr. morgan's addbess or welcome.
In his address as president of the association,
Dr. Morgan welcomed his associates to Wash
it gton. He spoke of the attractiveness of the
national capital as a meeting place for such an
association, and said: "You find our historic
city, decked in the robes of spring;
on all sides the industry, learning and generous
wealth of a great nation are reflected. You are
surrounded bv the beauties of nature and art
and are in the home of the scientific, libraries,
aboratoriea and museums fostered and en
evjraged by a liberal government.
I-American and every physician
shouj alike share in the "desire
for tag substantial improvement and adorn
ment ? the Mecca of this great and populous
country. \\ jaely you decided to follow in the
V it'* uu,nt^0ul, scientific bodies, among
them the lational academy of Sciences, that
P^ffHuages to our city and exert a
heaithv .itla?nce toward popularizing their
special Bells ot scientific investigation.
"The uistoty of laryngology, her
struggles ana her conquests, in
the capital f your country is brief, and em
braces a pervd of scarce a dozen years; hence
your meetiUfa here will create a happy influ
ence. \\ht n*ou visited our city last Septem
ber von con* tinted an important and honored
branch of a c-Qgress which did much to spread
the fame of Aiencan medicine t*nd advance

that Congress? attested by the volume of our
transactions u# in press, and forms an endur
ing ruonumen(creditable alike to the Ameri
can Laryngolok-Hl association and to the con
gress of Anit-riin physicians and surgeons.
"The noble t>rk in which this association
has been at'sofe-d during its eleven years of
existence has rtulted in placing laryngology
upon a siibstanil basis and of demonstrating
its truths and Uiefits alike to the profession
and to sufferin hunianitv. The outlook for
laryngology wa*ever brighter, new conquests
lie within our gwp. the field is unlimited, no

coveted; our infltnee upon medical thought in
the Old World wi never greater and the wis
dom of the coteriof laryngologists who organ
ized the Americt Larvngological association
at Buffalo in Jnn?878, is apparent."
He spoke at son length of the business of
the association, a|. in conclusion, he expressed
the hope that amithe manv attractions of this
scientific and ed*?tional cenUr they would
gain renewed imptis for their important work.

The Paul Monument.
After the band played the dirge before the
Sheridan monument the line was reformed and
proceeded to the spot iu the grounds
in the rear of the mansion
where a handsome granite monument had been
erected over the grave of Gen. Gabriel K. Paul.
Here special manorial exercises were con
ducted by John A. Rawlins' Post No. 1, of which
Augustus C. l'aul, sou of Gen. Paul, is com
The monument is a plain granite shaft. On
one face of the pediment is the inscription:
Gabriel R. Paul,
Brigadier-General, U. S. A.,
March 22, 1813,
May 5, 188fi.
On the other side is the one word, in large
letters, '?Paul." The monument whs erected
by the members of Oen. Paul's family. It was
beautifully decorated with flowers, a conspicu
ous object being a large floral tablet sent by
the Gabriel R. Paul post, of Bergen. N. J.
When tho procession reached the monument
a deep circle was formed about it under the
trees, and while all uncovered the band played
a dirge. Ex-Chief Justice Drake was intro
duced as the orator of tho occasion.
The Oration.
Chief Justice Drako pitid a simple and touch
ing tribute to the dead soldier, who was his
friend. In opening his address, which was de
voted mainly to a biographical skctch of the
distinguished soldier, he referred to his ac
quaintance with the gallant officer for about
fifty years and a warm friendship that had
existed between them during tho lust fifteen
"When, therefore," said the speaker, "a
committee of the Rawlins pout requested nie to
speak of him here to-day I felt that I could not
refuse, and I undertook the service with all the
moro readiness and pleasure because, though
ho was born in a territory where slavery ex
isted and which, in his childhood, was admitted
into tho Union as a slave state, he never re
nounced his allegiance to tho United States, as
so many army and navy officers did, for tho
wild and wicked phantasm or an empire of
slavery, to be erected in blood on domain
wrenched by war from the country of bis
He sketched Gen. Paul's career, his services
as a young officer against the Seminole Indians
uud his brilliant record in the Mcxican war,
ending with participation in the storming of
Chapultepec, where, for "gallant nnd merito
rious conduct," he was breveted major.
"Merely to mention that brevet," said
Justice Drake, "is not enough; there is a his
tory in it which ought not to be unnoticed here
to-day. The gallant and meritorious conduct
was not displayed in his place in his regiment,
but in the command of a storming party, mov
ing upon the enemy's works at the root of the
hill on which stood the fortress of Chapulte
pec. Few, probably, who have not been in
war, have a very definite idea of what a
storming party means. Its other name, in
military phrase, is forlorn hope. It is made
up of men selected for the desperate
work of an assault, with guns un
loaded and bayonets fixed, upon a
fortified position, that is to be taken,
if at all, in a band to hand fight, with tho
odds much in favor of the intrenched force, and
the jaws of death wide open to the assailants.
Even in the days of smooth-bore and muzzle
loading cannon and muskets, it was the dead
liest service in war, if the position were held by
a force sufficient to withstand the first onset,
and prolong resistance. It is usuallv committed
to those only who volunteer for it." The com
mand of a forlorn hope is a distinction. It
came to Gabriel II. Paul on the 13th of Septem
ber, 1847, before Chapultepec. Listen for a mo
ment to the story of that flrery hour, substan
tially as told by Gen. Twiggs in his report of
the part taken by his division in the reduction
of the City of Mexico and its contiguous works.
"At the foot of the hill on which stood the
fortress of Chapultepeo were defenses, up to
which led an open road. In front upon that
road Captain Paul's storming party moved
alone. General Smith's brigade was" on the
right of the road, and General Quitman's at
tacking column on the left of it; but on the
road was only the storming party, moving in
advance of ihe supporting columns, right in
the face of a well-directed fire from a batterv
at the base of the fortress, and from musketry
sheltered by an aqueduct, and also from breast
works across and on each side of tho road.
This concentrated tire the stormers had to re
ceive in silence until they got within charging
distance; but once there they rushed with wild
cheers on the enemy's guns, and with
the assistance of Smith's brigade, which had
been thrown forward toward the aqueduct,
drove off or killed the cannoniers, and took
possession of this strong point. Smith's bri
gade then pushed on and captured a second
battery, in rear of the first, when several guns
and many prisoners were taken. After some
brisk skirmishing the enemy were finally
driven from every point, and were pursued
some distance by the storming party under
command of Capt. Paul. This party having
now been overtaken by the first division, and
their specific duties as stormers having been
accomplished, were ordered to return and re
join their respective regiments. Upon this af
fair Gen. Twiggs made this brief but emphatic
comment: 'Too much cannot be said in praise
of the officers and men who composed the
storming force, with Capt. Paul in command.'
"Doubtless this achievement became known
to the people of St. Louis, for on his return
from tho field of war they presented him with
a sword in honor of his services, and that
sword is worn here to-day by his son. the com
mander of the John A. Rawlins post."
The speaker carried on the Btory of Gen.
Paul's life while on the Utah expedition, and
through his gallant and devoted service to the
Union in the late war. until when, in command
of a brigade at Gettysburg, a rifle ball de
prived him in an instant of the sight of both
eyes. In 1365 he was retired as colonel, his
rank in the regular army, but a subsequent
Congress gave recognition of his service by
giving him full pay and allowances of a briga
dier-general for life.
There was a delegation present from the
Gabriel B. Paul Post, and at the close of Judge
Drake's oration one of the members stepped
forward aud read a series of memorial resolu
tions adopted by that post.
Decorating the Graves.
While the ceremonies described above were
in progress committees of ladies were
engaged in every direction in the
cemetery strewing flowers upon the
thousands of graves of federal soldiers,
leading to the tomb of "the unknown." Here
a dirge was played, and a committee of ladies
went through the form of showering with
roses the tomb which was already almost
completely hidden by masses of flowers.
Upon each mound, as is customary, a tiny
flag was placed. There were flowers in abund
ance and no grave was neglected.
The band, upon returning from the Paul
monument, headed a procession that wound
through the shady paths.
Notable among the ornaments was a wreath
sent from the White House by Mrs. Harrison.
After this ceremony the procession marched to
the amphitheater, which was already thronged
with the invited guests of the Grand Army of
Republic. The pillars of the structure were
festooned with evergreens and flags.
The assembly was called to order by Depart
ment Commander William S. OdelL ? dirge
was played by the Marine band,
and the exercises were conducted ac

Before the exercises were .(jonclnded the
shower that had been threatening all the day
came, and many persons who were unable to
obtain shelter wore pretty thoroughly
Soldiers' Home National Cemetery.
Some had baskets and nearly all had children
and there was a general holiday appearance
about the group of people passing along the
ltock Creek Church road this morning. The
streets cars on the 7th street road brought them
to this point. There were some hacks running
to tne Soldiors' Home cemetery, but the major
ity of the visitors preferred to walk. The men
carried the baskets and the women the babies,
and when there were none of the latter they
both united on the basket. As for the children
they ran ahead and loitered behind and when
they came to a big field of daisies they plunged
into the sea of white and yellow and gathered
whole armsful. In spito of these and other
distractions the tide of travel kept steadily on
to the brow of the hill, where the cluster of
forest trees cast a grateful shale over the
cool green lawns of the Soldiers' Homo ceme
tery. Here the exercises of Memorial Day were
held, and the early arrivals looked down the
ong lines of white tombstones and at the head
of each a tiny American fiag fluttered.
was draped in large American flags which con
trasted in color with the white massive pillars
supporting the roof. On all sides stretch
the smooth lawn, its soft cool green affording
a restful change after the hot and dusty road.
The pavilion is located at the foot of a gently
rising slope, and around this semi-amphi
theater and beneath the shade of the hand
some oaks were placed the Beats for the audi
ence. Shortly after 9 o'clock the people began
to assemble there. But before the regular ex
ercises began a visit was made to the granite
mortuary chapel, where lies
It is located near the entrance to the
grounds and in front of the pavilion. The
massive iron doors were swung wide open, and
loving hands were placing flowers upon the
casket. Major and Mrs. Tucker, Miss Brady,
George Logan, of Cincinnati; Judge Mat

George E. Lemon and other relatives and

F. Van Delt, T. R. Senia, Jeff Thomas and
others were present. The iron casket was cov
ered with the American colors and npon it
was placed a profusion of flowers. A bouquet
was sent by President and Mrs. Harrison, and a
shield of red, white and blue from the one
hundred and three members of the Illinois
legislature who voted for General Logan
when last elected a member of the
Senate. The members of John A. Logan
Camp Sons of Veterans under the command of
the captain.M. A. Skinner, and accompanied by
Capt. Thomason visited the tomb in a body and
placed there a floral tribute. The interior of
the chapel was made bright and lragrant with
the flowers. Mrs. Logan, the widow of the de
ceased general, remembered the occasion and
ordered from Europe, where she now is,
flowers to be sent to tne tomb. A delegation of
the Logan Invincibles, of Baltimore, is ex
pected to visit the tomb during the day. There
were no funeral exercises.
In tho meanwhile the audience was gathering
at the speaking stand. The third United
States artillery fired a national salute and the
veterans of the home, under command of Maj.
Gen. O. B. Wilcox, governor of the home,
marched to the cemetery. The exercises were
under the direction of Jas. M. Pipes, senior
vice-commander of the department of the Po
tomac. In calling the assemblage to order, Mr.
Pipes mado

morial day. Beats had been placed in front of
the stand to accommodate a large number, and
they were nearly all occupied when Mr. Pipes
began his speech. The musical part of the
Erogram was furnished by the Soldiers' Home
and, and the Harmony choral association, the
latter being under the leadership of Dr.
Thomas Calver. Rev. George Elliott offered
the invocation, and Comrade DeWitt C. Sprague
read an original poem, which was full of Ufe
and vigor.
The oration was delivered by Major 8. 8.
Rockwood and was listened to with close atten
Major Rockwood devoted his address to an
eloquent discussion of the present meaning of
the exercises of the day and their meaning and
purpose to the citizen who shall conduct them
when all the veterans have passed away. "By
these public andofiicial honors thus bestowed,"
he said, "we pledge the whole power of gov
ernment, through its complete circle from
municipal to national, to the perpetual support
of the principles for which these men fought
and died, and therefore these ceremonies must
be declared as solely in the interest of patriot
ism. The lessons they teach are thoso of pa
triotic devotion to the caufce of national unity
and universal freedom. Whether we all see it
clearly or not we here rededicate ourselves to
the service of our common country, and here
anew, year by year, set our seal of condemna
tion upon that false and fatul theory of society
and government out of which the rebellion
"One hundred and seven years ago," he said,
"there were many men who wept because of
Yorktown and twenty-four Tears ago there
were many more who wept because of Appo
mattox. |The Fourth of July magnanimously
forgets ttte tory, and the 30th of May must
likewise prow the mantle of charity over the
confederate. Those who err may be forgiven,
bnt they cannot be exalted; they may share our
private commiseration, but they cannot divide
our public encomiums; they may be mourned
by tne Individual, but they cannot be honored
by the state. This is not prejudice, but logic;
not implacable hostility, bnt soand philosophy;
not heated passion, but cool reason; not the
voice of undying hate, bat of irrevocable judg
"Here and now let the line be drawn. If the
Union soldiers were patriots, then none other*
in the field were. If these dead, who died for
their country, shall go forward to perpetual
earthly fame, the enemy they slew most be
left behind with the generation that knew and
mourns them; if theee receive the unceasing
recognition accorded to righteous triumph,
those must pay the penalty of error in defeat;
if these shall forever furnish models of hero
ism and loyalty, those most be eontent as ex
amples of brave bnt misguided devotion; tt
these are to be immortalised by the happy
millions of the perpetuated Union, those most
go down to obscurity with the lost oause for
which they valiantly fought and willingly died.
"This is my answer?this is whnt I find in the
And significant Moroim of MtnoriAl
Day as a fixed and permanent institution. This
is what the day must mean to the young and
to those who ohall come after us, if it shall
hare any meaning at all worthy of the glorious
future of the Republic. Hut to the old veterans
themselves, those of us who still march abreast
or these calm days of peace and thrift; to all
those who saw the cloud no larger than a man's
nana on the southern horizon gather to its
bosom the fateful lightnings and the heaven
descending bolts; to those of us who saw the
storm gather, burst and spend its fury, there
is in the day and its rite* what no tongue can
utter ana what no other generation will ever
i ii ** our e*c'U8've heritage, which we
shall carrv down to the grave with us, sacred
and inviolable forever; and as the returning
years bring us round and round again to this
day, with ever thinning ranks and failing
strength, may we always comc better prepared
and more willing to go over to 'the great ma
jority, never doubting Him, in the hollow or
whose hand lightly lies the secure universe "
The exercises were concluded with the bene
diction, and then the committee, visitors and
inmates of the Home decorated the graves.

At Congressional Cemetery.
Shortly after 8 o'clock East Washington
people were on the way to Congressional ceme
tery, that time-honored city of the dead on the
banks of the Anacostia. At the gate of the
cemetery a delegation of Farragut Post, No. 10,
G. A. R., was on hand to receive those who
were expected to take part in the decoration
exercises Many persons came by carriages
and herdics, and by 9:30 o'clock, when the
formal exercises were to take place, there were
perhaps 1 500people in and about the grounds
At that hour, with Weber's band playing a
dirge, the company present, comprising mem
bers of the Grand Army, relatives of the
honored dead, members of the Mozart
Musical association and others, formed a
procession ?nder Commander Dinsmore,
of Farragut Post, G. A. R., and, headed
iLL-i? ba"d' marched to the stand,
which was in the western part of the grounds
near the monument over Gen. Rawlins' grave!
Here the members of the band, with the vocal
ists, took seats, and Weber's band opened the
exercises bv the dirge, -The Honored Dead "
Commander Dinsmore called the assemblage
to order in a brief address, stating that this
was one of the occasions when aU should renew
the pledge of loyalty and welcome their
faUen bruve?mmem0ratln^ tL? memory of the
Rev Mr. Wilson, chaplain of Farragut Post,
offered the invocation und the Mozart associa

Comrade George a Reynolds recited an
original^ poem .-The Soldier's Wife and
Mother, and the Mozart uaaociation sani;
' Honor the Brave." b
Hon. W. W. Curry, of Indiana, then delivered
the oration.
Mr. Curry began by referring to the events
in our national history which the centennial
year commemorates, and gave a brief but in
teresting review of the political changes in
parties and opinions up to the late war
Slavery was not the cause of the civil war. he
said only its occasion. The real issue was be
hind the immediate interest and was envolved
in the question "Is the United States a nation
or a confederacy of nations?" If it was a vol
^federation of sovereign states, then
those sovereignties had a right to withdraw
from the confederation, however inconvenient
the dissolution might be, and to establish such
tr?rrs,a< the-v mi*ht He? p^p^.
If the United States was a nation, he asserted
then it was m duty bound to preserve the na^

dissolution. Slavery gave to this controversy

They Gave a Banquet Before Leaving
For more than a month past there have been
no two more anxious office-seeking Missourians
in town than Gen. B. G. Farrar and L. 8. Metcalf,
both of St. Louis. The general wanted to be
and still want* to be assistant treasurer
of the United States at 8t Louis, while Mr.
Metcalf ha* not given up all hope of being
appointed appraiser. Repeated failures to
bring matters to a comprehensive focus,
neglected businesses in St. Louis, aud
rapidly-growing board bill* decided
the matter. *o far as staying here
waa concerned. Laat night the two gentlemen
gave a farewell spread to several Missouri
friends and to a number of newspaper men
who are not Missourians. A few of the summer
opera artist* were also invited from Albaugh's,
and it is said that the company
had a decidedly pleasant time. Among
those present were ex-Judge Drake, R. H. Syl
vester, Major 8. IL Brock, Prof. Love, Stanley
Waterloo, Major Clemens, W. B. Stevens, G.
A. Apperson, O'Brien Moore, F. A. G. Handy,
Dunn and Pearson. Everybody either made'a
speech or sung a song, and some of the more
accomplished did both.
Monument to the Memory of the Police
men Killed by Anarchist*.
Chicaoo, May 90.?At 1 o'clock this afternoon
the memorial monument erected by citizen* in
honor of the policemen who were killed by an
anarchist bomb in the Haymarket riot on May
4, 1886, waa unveiled. The ceremonies
were very simple, consisting of a presentation
address by Mr. R. T. Oane, chairman of the
citizen*' committee; the ceremony of unveiling
by Martin Degan, son of Officer Mathiaa J.
Degan, the first ot the policemem who died
from the effect* of the explosion; an address
accepting the monument on behalf
of the city by Mayor Cregier, and
a historical addieas by Mr. F. H.
Head. In view of the large number of proces
sion* to the cemeteries for the purpose of dee
orating the Union soldiers' graves, it was de
elded not to have a procession in connection
with the unveling of this memorial.
The monument eonaiefc of a pedestal sur
mounted by a bronze statee of a policeman ia
