len Who Served With the Dead Sol
dier Tell of Their Ez
General Henry W. Lawton, the army and
merican womanhood were eulogized by the
alt a dozen or more speakers who accept
i the invitation of the Henry W. Lawton
oimnand, No. 88, S. W. A., to dine with
at the Barton Hotel Saturday night. The
en who assembled about the tables in the
ing banquet ball of the hotel wgre almost
li men who have responded to the call
f their country In the time of need and
ho have performed or have sought to
arform deeds of valor on the battlefields
two hemispheres. Some of them did not
et to a battlefield until after the fight
as over and some of them, professional
ldIers, have ditinguished records for
srvice rendered not alone during the war
ith Spain, but in the Indian wars of the
rest west, and the great conflict between
e states. One or two of those present
ad never seen a battlefleld or worn a uni
rm. but they had rendered some serv
e to their country in time of need as
ying and as arduous as that which the
g'ting men had rendered.
The Lawton -comman& is made up from
nong the members of the District volun
ser regiment, with a goodly proportion of
ben who were in other organizations. There
,ere about seventy-five members of the
mmand and guests in the parlors of
e hotel when "reveille" was sousyded, -fol
owed shortly by "assembly," which was
ie signal for the diners to repair to the
anquet hall to partake of the feast spread
>r them.
The Decorations.
Hardly had the guest. secured their
laces at the table when the sharp report
f a gun was heard and in the rear of the
om the stars and stripes fluttered. to the
oak of a tall flag pole, while the orchestra
layed the "Star Spabgled Banner." The
ecorations of the banquet hall were so
nique that the diners paused for some
toments before beginning the discussion of
1e excellent menu served to examine and
nderstand all that was before them. At
ach side of the entrance of the hall were
laced two large marque tents with flag
oles rising from the center. Directly op
osite the entrance was hung a huge Iron
ot on a tripod of rough hewn rails. Be
Ind the pot and tripod was a miniature re
roduction of the block bouse on San Juan
Ill. The sides of the hall were draped
ith flags and bunting and at the end. In
'ont of the flag pole, which towered to the
tlling, was a magnified reproduction of
ie castle used as the insignia of the army
ngineers lighted by electric lights. On the
uest table, across the upper end of the
om. a camp ground was laid out. Tiny
mnts were pitched and miniature soldiers
rilled on the green award. At either end
the table were block houses over which
aved Spanish colors. A diminutive battery
I artillery covered the block houses and
ireatened them with destruction. In the
an.ter of this battlffield was perched an
.merican eagle.
The diners were called to order after the
kenu had been served by Captain Sheridan
erree, captain of the Lawton command.
aptain Ferree welcomed the guests to the
inner and. after a few words of eulogy to
eneral Lawton, introduced General George
[. Harries to act as toastmaster. General
[arries was intimately acquainted with
eneral Lawton when he was a captain in
ie 4th Cavalry, and was serving under
olonel MacKenzie during the Indian cam
aigns in the southwest. He told several
tories of General Lawton's career in the
Gen. Lawton Eulgised.
The toastmaster then introduced Captain
loyd M. Brett of Troop F, 2d United States
avairy, to respond to the toast, "General
awton." Captain Brett served with Gen
ral Lawton during his Indian campaigns,
nd knew him intimately as a cavalry offi
er. The speaker referred to the work of
he cavalry and Lawton's pre-eminence as
n officer in this branch of the service. He
eferred to the campaign in Cuba and of
,awton's aggressiveness, and gave It as his
pinion that if the Spaniards had not sur
endered they would have awakened one
ne morning to find the American trenches
aside Santiago. Major C. G. G. Anderson,
inlted States Volunteers, who was a sur
eon In the army during the Indian cam
aigns in Arizona, and who became a vol
nteer surgeon during the war with Spain,
ras next Introduced. Major Anderson
erved In Arizona. Cuba and the Philippines
rith General Lawton, and knew him well.
Ie spoke highly of his ability as an officer
nd of his interesting career.
Secretary Shaw's Speech.
Secretary Leslie M. Shaw was then pre
ented to tell how the war was carried on.
'he speaker prefaced his remarks by stat
ig that he had never been a soldier, but
hat he had once commanded the army and
avy of the state of Iowa. He then told of
be organization of the volunteer regiments
or the war with Spain, and of the patriotic
esponses that came to the call to arms.
"One morning that grand man. William
!cKinley, wrote to Congress of the intoler
ble situation in Cuba," said the speaker.
He said that there might be trouble, and
sked Congress to give him money to pre
are for It. Within two hours and thirty
ilnutes by the watch both houses of Con
ress had passed a bill appropriating $50,
00,000 for national defense, which they
laced unreservedly in the hands of the
recutive for disposition. A few days later
he President again wrote to Congres. He
aid he had received the money appro
riated for national defense, that he had
zpended it as he saw fit, that diplomacy
ad failed, and that something must be
one immediately. Again Congress rose to
be occasion, and before nightfall had
dopted a resolution authorizing the Presi
ent to use the land and naval forces of the
Tnited States to expel Spain from the west
rn continent. Partisanism was laid aside
nd patriotism rose to the surface. Then
ras there a condition made which itartled
be universe. We had no clothes, no pow
er, no guns, and no food for soldiers. With
he money appropriated by Congress thie
'resident set the factories going and the
rmories working. Within a few weeks
here was placed in the field an army of
0,000 mnen, the grandest army that was
ver organized.
"Those soldiers looked back en ancestry
bat hai fought on every field in every
ountry, in every clime. Over their cradles
ad been crooned the battle hymns of every
ation, and to their lips swelled war cries
a many tongues. The man of the north,
he man of the south, the wild Indian of
he plains-each rushed to the front and of
ired his services to their country. Were
bose the men who had fought in '61? The
eterans of Antiem, the Wilderness, Get
rsbur and Rappmakanock? No. They
rere te young men, the sons of the men
rho fought on both sides. They were eager
er the fight. They lougedl to show theti
arents that -the red bilood of their ancestry
til sowed full and free in their veins, and
hat their patriotism and love for their flag
ras e great as had been the ptriotin
ad love- which had driven their formea+hea
a the fields of battle, to fight and to win."

An interesting revolver contest took place
Saturday night at the Central Market Arm
ory between a squad of metropolitan police
and the Revolver Association of the Dim- 1
trict. Ten keen-eyed marksmen lined up on
mach side, and at the end of the contest the
association was declared the winner by a
moore of 640 to 606. Bull'm-eyes were of
common occurrence, and the scores hung
up by each individual -were more thai
susaly high! Kennedy of the police squad
led his companions with a score Sf TB, while 1
Cook of the association did the best work
Er that side with figures showing 19.
-During the contest there was quite a eon- I
trovergy over four marks shmowing for five I
shots, and it was believed that one of the
shots had gone through the other on the I
target. Bell ad Kenedy of the rival'
Leamns made shots of this sort, andi it wasc
