AGAIN IN CF Battle-Maimed ai of the Ci REMINDER OF President Roosevel Line of APPLAUDED BY Old Boys Plod Bravely Alo the Strains of They are diminished in numbers, yet are they more dear; they are halt in step, but with the vain of that tread does our rever ence increase; they bear the weight of years and the burden of hardship, but these have not been In vain. The naition looks fond4y from the broad expanse of forty-five states with a single eye, a single flag and a single heart-throb of pride and reverence on the little band of hoary-head ed veterans as It marches today in the one capital of these states-the Grand Army of the greatest republic in all the world. The sentiment which thrills the heart of the President of this republic is the same that quickens the pulse of its lowliest member. It is the highest sentiment that can be felt In the human breast-the reall nation of free manhood; a spark of pride that this principle has triumphed; a thrill at the military pageant, and that tender regard for those who dared to do the thing which makes us great. With this is min gled a sadness which comes unbidden-the Grand Army of the Republic marches per haps for the last time In Washington to day. The thought that this Is an epoch In the nation's history cannot be kept away. How cheerful are their faces, how glad their hearts. Though the ebbtlde of life is even far spent, how the American manhood ananifests itself as the aged warriors once again feel the inspiration of the bugle, the Afe and the drum. They are boys again. Though they we tn the faes of their com rades of long ago the marks of time, they 'do not feel it themselves. Though the pur .uits of peace have long since superseded the arts of war, tihey are still, in their hearts, the nation's volunteer army. And that nation! It has mounted to civic heights hitherto unattained In this world, wrhile, in accordance with inexorable laws, the fragility of mankind has manifested it self on those whose acts made this progres sion possible. As the inspiration of the moment is the great mainspring of human endeavor, to day's epoch in America's history could not have had a happier setting. Nature b'.amed - coL A.

In reverence to today. Again and again during the four years of strife did the city pay its homage to these, its defenders, and in the grand review, in the year 1865, when the work had been accomplished-the Union saved-ehe welcomed the trained warrior, Silas H. Towler. - Adjutant General, G.4 the grim-visaged voterhan, 1ut t- the same time the stalwart manhood of the nation. From this point twenty-seven years had elapsed before the men of the G. A. R. again marched the length of this glorious thoroughfare. And today they marched again-gray-haired, venerable veterans closing up manfully the gaps that have been made in thOir ranks. The remnant of de parted grandeur, but as a remnant, bearing the concentrated glory of their former strength and greatness. A new generation looked on the veterans today. Typifying this generation was the President himself-a man in whom none of the nation's characteristics have been lost. But in the breast of the multitude were those same characteristics--love of freedom, veneration for the hero, sanctity for the gray head and a warmth of love for the "old yet." Even age could not resist the inspiration of the fife and drum. The spirit .of Ameri canism carried everything before it. The tread of the veterans made the heart throb with emotion. The ring of American airs from the myriad of American bands thrilled the American pulse. The uncontrollable lm pulse to shout and cheer was yielded to and that shout and those cheers sounded a mighty requiem from the monument which betoken. peace under the shadow of the Capitol's great dome to the fartherest cor-~ ners of the country of the stars and stripes. The epoch in America's history heralded today embodies the lessorn not only of the past, but of the future--a lesson that is so simple that it is learned by the tiniest-tot but which, through long years of cherishing is most precious to the scarred and battle worn veteran; the lesson that to fight for and to preserve freedom pays- not only in the fighting, but in the living, in the dying and In the hallowed memory remaining. We are all better men, better women and better children for having seen the parade of the Grand Army of the Republic to day. Those who made up that parade are better_ veterans, and the lmemory of that event which Is written la tenderest pathos in the heart of the nation Is the purest and sweetest imemory to be chmeshad in an American heart. From the standpoint of a military pageant there was nothing lacking In the thirty sixth annual parade of the G. A. R. The faultless arrangements were carried out in a faultles manner-they were executed by veterans. With a singleness of purpose the whole nation had ~Its eye focussed on this one event. Nature produoed her' beet In perfect day's. The warm sun kissed the crle October a~ me mostrils l=aeeme nt emli te b ineema of nature, but the vaat and S~ of voices that mingled in glad hosannas to the triumphant march of the G. A. R. With all this realization of triumphant glory there was a sentiment of sadness. The realization that the object of adoratiori was soon to be only a memory, devoid of in spiration even by the halting step of a veteran band. How fortunate were we then to have seen this last triumphant march of the fading hero ranks. The muster rolls still contain thousands of names. But the names are yearly growing less numerous. And the story contained under each blue coat we cherish as more dear as the number grows smaller. But with 4ll the Grand Army of the Re public is not dead. It will meet in annual convention again and again and again. Its hallowed Influence will be felt for- many years on the generations which are follow ing. The features of the parade today were most attractive. The veterans' were re splendent in the glory of their parapherna lia. The populace inspired them on every hand by an ovation of love, affection and enthusiasm which could but quicken the tread of the aged. The President of the United States greeted each one of the vet erans. Although not permitted to stnd .in review, he rode, propped up in a carriage, over the entire line of march, and his greet ing of the war heroes of '61 to '65 was no les enthusiastic and cordial than was their greeting of the impersonation of energy and daring in the war of '98. The parade of the Grand Army of the Re. public in Washington today, thirty-seven years after its victorious march over the same streets, at the conclusion of the events which makes the nalne hallowed; was most auspicious in all the elements of sentiment. most inspiring in scenic effects, most ap THEl GRAND REVIEW 0 pealing to national pride and most touch Ing to the simple heart -of the- Ainerican populace.

ALL THE TROOPS OUT OFFICERS AND MEN ARE DE A ILY IN EARNEST. Question of Supreme Interest, Will the Mines Be Started Up Now? Special From a Staff Correspondent. WILKESBARRE, Ia., October 8.-The anthracite coal fields are today bristling With bayonets whicil gleam in the frosty air and the peaceful valleys resound with the march of armed men. Seven thousand fighting men are on the scene or en route. They a e belted with loaded cartridges, are in fighting trim and ready to unlimber and let go on the slightest indication of trouble. Coming up the road the evidences of warlike preparation were visible all through the night. At every principal town the troops were unloading from their cars or sleeping in their trains sidetracked to let the express go by. On the platforms the men stood around in groups awaiting the word of command to spread over the surrounding country and take up their po sitions to guard the miners who are sup posed to be ready to go back to work. In the background like specters in the mist the miners gathered in silent bands. From Pittsburg, from Harrisburg. from Philadelphia, from Reading and from the northern tier of counties the miUtiamen are hurrying to this region in response to Governor Stone's order. The entire active militia strength of Pennsylvania Is today in the field for the first time since the great Homestead strike of 1892. Back of them are the reserves who can be called on in case of need. Region of Activity. There are atout 8.000 in the vicinity of this town. The most active section of the coal region lies hereabouts and some of the largest collieries are in the neighborhood. South of here is the region that in the past has been the scene of the greatest out breaks, Hazleton. Shenandoah and Tama qua. Every township of it has been patroll ed at one time or another by the militiamen since the beginning of the strike trouble in 1898. They are a determined looking set of men. these Pennsylvania. National Guardseen. Recruited in the main outside of the big cities, from yong amen who - work- in- Ue rolling mills, factories and railroad yards, they asre "husky" fellows and make a brave so ' in their fatigue uniforms, leggins and fiannel shirts. The provost guards were. out early thbi morning on patrol around Wilkesbarre. They swept through the city streets, the crowds giving way respectfully before them, for there was an air of determination about them and their officers which gave the im pression that they were not here for their health alone. On the outskirts of town and in the min ing-hamlets north of the city the idle min erm stood around in groups, offering no word of comment upon the presence of the troops. It will be remembered that General Gobin gave an order some time ago to shoot at crowds that were disorderly and to shoot to kill. That order still stands. There is no doubt it will be carried out with dread earnestness if provocation is offered. Will the Mines Start Now? The great question today is, "will the presence of the troops start the mines to work?" Governor Stone has led the horse to water, can he make him drink. The operators have insisted for weeks that there were large numbers of men anx ious and willing to go back to work if they could be afforded protection against those who insist upon remaining in the strike. President Mitchell has insisted- such was not the case and that the presence of troops would not break the strike. The next few days should develop the facts and prove whether the operators were correct or whether Mr. Mitchelliknows his men as he claimed to know them. MITCHELL NON-COMMITTAL. His Answer to President Depends on Action of Locals. By the Associated Press.. WILKESBARRE, Pa., October 8.-Nation al President Mitchell of the miners' union and the three anthracite district presidents returned to this city from Buffalo early this mornir.g. The chief of the miners had noth ing to say regarding yesterday's trip and also declined to discuss President Roose velt's proposition for ending the strike. Hie will not even indicate when he will give his answer to the President, but it is not pro', able he will do sc until after he has received the reports of all the local unions which will meet 'today 1n -accordance with 1sin structions and take action on the. qu stion of. whether their members desire to remain on strike. Several of the locals met yesterday and last ight..- All of, them voted to stay out, and it is .predleted that when the colnplete returns are in it will be found that the vote to? continue the strike will be nearly unani Under. instruction 'from Mr. Mitchell the result- of'the meetings, wlhich are caled for. 2 o'clock this afternoon, must be telegraph d to beadqauarters immediately after the ad lournment of the gathe. ings. .
