Annual Banquet econdArny
SHOREHAM LAST NIGHT
OVATION TO GEN. NELSON A.
WTLES, GUEST O HONOR.
Tribute raid to Memory of Old Com
manders-Gen. Shallenberger as
The organization which keeps alive the
memories of the gallant soldiers who
brought honor and glory to the 2d Corps
of the Army of the Potomac assembled at
dinner last night at the Shoreham Hotel
and fought again the battles through which
the corps passed. There were present half
a hundred or more grizzled members of the
2d Army Corps Association, all of Whom had
rendered valuable service to their country.
At the guest table was the. comnanding
general of the army, a United States sena
tor, a justice of the Supreme Court' of the
United States, a retired major general of
the army, the president of a university and
an assistant cabinet minister, all but one of
whom had fought in the ranks of the 2d
Army Corps, and one of whom won for him-.
self a place in the army and lasting re
nown as a leader.
The soft tints of the newly decorated ban
quet hall of the Shorehan formed an ex
cellent background for the bright red, white
and blue of the national flag, which was the
only bit of bunting used. About the walls
at regular intervals were placed stands of
colors in sets of threes. Above each stand
of colors was a wreath of laurel and ever
green, in the center of which was written
the name of one of the commanders of the
corps. Thus Sumner, Sedgewick, Hancock,
Warren, Humphrey and Couch were honor
Between the wreaths were reproductions
in evergreen of the trefoil badge of the
second corps. Above the head of the toast
master was another trefoil, traced in white
electric lights on a red center and placed
against a blue background, the three colors
denoting the three divisions of the corps.
The souvenir menu cards contained the
name and numerical designation of every
regiment that served in the 2d Corps from
its organization to the end of the war. Be
side the roster of regiments and companies
was a list of twenty-eight pitched battles
in which the corps had participated. The
names of the corps commanders throughout
the war were also printed in the menu.
Gen. W. S. Shallenberger, second assistant
postmaster general, who is president of the
2d Army Corps Association, called the as
semblage to order, after the last course had
been served. He said the 2d Corps had in
cluded in its ranks many distinguished sol
diers, and that a number of these had at
tained renown in every walk of life. He
spoke of the number of persons wQio had
been invited to attend the dinner and of the
difficulty in securing speakers.
Letters of Regret.
He then read letters of regret from Presi
dent Roosevelt, Admiral Dewey, Gen. Alex
ander S. Webb, Gen. James A. Beaver, Gen.
John M. Wilson, former Speaker Henderson,
Gen. St. Clair, A. Mulholland, Gen. H. H.
Bingham, Justice Harlan and Mr. S. S. Bur
Mr. Burdette was to have responded to
the first toast, "Our Country Yesterday,"
but was unable to be present. Gen. George
W. Bair, U. S. A., was introduced in place
of Mr. Burdette, to read a poem reciting the
deeds of the Army of the Potomac. The
poem was loudly applauded. Mr. George H.
Lillibridge sang "We Drank From the Same
"On the 2d of May, 1862, at the. battle of
Chancellorsville," Gen. Shallenberger said,
in introducing the next speaker, "the gen
tral in command of the army watched close
ly the work of one regiment, and, turning
to one of his aids, said:
" 'Tell Col. Miles he is worth his weight
"Gen. Miles is with us tonight and we
would like to hear from him of the condi
tion of 'Our Country Today.' "
Cheers for Gen. Miles.
Gen. Miles was cheered as he rose to
speak. He referred to the pleasure it gave
him to be among the members of the 2d
Army Corps at one of their reunions be
cause he had served with that corps and
had once been its commander.
He said he had been reminded of many in
cidents connected with the great war by
the names of t'he commanders he saw on
the walls of the banquet hall, and he told
several anecdotes relating to the peculiari
ties of their various corps commanders.
He then spoke of the prosperous condition
of the country today and said he believed it
te be one of the results of the victory gain
ed in 1865. He said it hadi recently been his
good fortune to make a long trip -around
the world, during the course of which he
had visited almost every civilized country
and several that were not quite so .civilized.
He referred to the Chinese problem as one
of the greatest of the century and said he
hoped its solution would be accomplished
Gen. Miles traveled Trom gPekin ^ to St.
Pe-tersburg via the Trans-SiberArt railroad,
thence through Germany and the other Eu
ropean states to England. He said. the de
Velopment of the United' States as he had
seen It in crossing the country. -was the
most wonderful of the age and that there
was no country in the world so biei sed and
prosperous as our own.
Dr. Needham Spaks.
The next speaker was Dr. Charles W.
Needham, president of the Columbian Uni
versity. who was called upon to respond to
the toast, "Our Country-Tomorrow." The
theme of Dr. Needham's address was the
heritage of the children and grandchildren
of the present generation. To it, he said,
the men who fought in the civil war had
contributed in no mean degree.
The speaker believed that this heritage
could be kept pure and unstained if - the
youth would keep before it the example of
the men who entered the army to battle for
Justice Oliver Wendell -B olmnes of the
United States Supreme Court was intro
duced next as an old member of the 2d
Corps who had been twice wounded, in bat
tle. Justice Holmes said the occasion .of
such a reunion always filled his heart with
a love and veneration for the romantic
spirit of the people ot'this country,
He said that after the war he had left
the army and had since devoted himself
assiduously to the prosecution of his studies
of the law. He had godie far aWAf from
the current of popular feeling and had be
come a student. As 'he was dtairn once
more from the librag~ tA, t%te soltof the
men with whom he was associat ~ during
those four terrible years,, ha. said, - the old
feeling revived and something of the exul
tation of battle retumsed.and he lived again
those old days when the true worth of man
was brought out on the field of battle.' .

Private Dalzell's Grit.
When Private Dalzell had recently passed
over safely the first crisis in a severe case e
of pneumonia Dr. Barnes, the attending
physician, a little proud of his profes
sional success in a case thought hopeless
at the start, said jocosely, "Oh, Private,
you old soldiers are hard to kill."
Looking up quickly the Private asked
the doctor what was that last bitter dose
he had given him-(the germicide usually
prescribed at this stage). "That," remarked
the. doctor quietly, "is only arsenic."
"I thought so," retorted the Private, "for 1
I knew I had swallowed everything in the
drug store except the soda fountain and
Rough on Rats.
"None of the rest of your drugs could
kill me, but I'm not so sure nowi, doctor,
that you have got to giving me Rough on
Rats, but if that don't fix me, I guess I'll
get out all right. So bring on your Rough

One of the cases, as gleaned from the
minutes, that occupied the attention of the
members was of skin grafting successfully
accomplished in Italy. A noblh. had lost his
nose in a duel, and a peannant offered tc
Stve a portion of the cuticle. from his arm
to repair as far as possible the damage,
The operation was performed tq the satis
faction of both parties.
The noble was very much annoyed,how
ever, to find that every now and then his
nose would swell up and become red, giving
him the appearance of a drunkard, not
withstanding his habits were most exem
He discovered some months later, how
ever. that the peasant was in the habit of
Indulging in sprees, and that his nose
turned red during such periods. What was
his dismay when, some years later, while
attending a court function at Venice, his
nose turned cold, shriveled and fell off, at
the same hour, as he afterward learned, o1
the peasant's death.
Board of Missions.
The quarterly meeting of the District of
Columbia auxiliaries of the Christian wo
man's board of missions of the Christian
churches was held at the H Street Church
Thursday morning. The meeting was pre
sided over by Mrs. Emma S. Lattimore,
state president. The record of the pro
ceedings of the last quarterly meeting was
read by Mrs. Laura Morrison of the Ninth
Street Christian Church.
The program included devotional exer
cises, Mrs. M. D. Pickens of Vermont Ave
nue Church; address of welcome, Mrs.
Broderick; response, Mrs. McDaniels. The
following items of interest from the field
were given: India, Mrs. McNaught; Porto
Rico, Mrs. Jones; America, Mrs. Day.
After discussion it was decided that the
auxiliaries of the District hold a competi
tive examination the afternoon of Wednes
day, June 10, at the Ninth Street Christian
Church. The subject will be "The Organi
zation and Work of the Christian Woman's
Board of Missions." This will include the
fields, names of missionaries and the suc
cess of their work. The auxiliary making
the least correct answers will entertain the
rest of the auxiliaries.
It was decided that a reception be ten
dered to Miss Elsie Gordon and Dr. Roste
Oxer, two missionaries of the Christian
woman's board of missions from India, who
will be in Washington next month at Ver
mont Avenue Church. It was also decided
to hold a mass meeting at the Ninth
Street Church in April, at which Mr. C. C.
Smith, the colored evangelist of the Chris
tian woman's board of missions, will be
the principal speaker.
- Lunch was served at noon by the ladies
of the H Street Church.
Objected to Having Picture in Gallery.
Florence Vernon called at police head
quarters yesterday afternoon and requested
Captain Boardman to take her picture from
the gallery. She had been arrested by
Precinct Detective Herndon on suspicion
of having robbed William Weed of $50.
Mr. Weed Is in Boston and he sent word
to the police that he would not return
to prosecute the case, and Florence was
released. She denied that she took the
man's money. Her photograph was taken
at police headquarters. Captain Board
man informed her that her picture will not
adorn the gallery.
