Several Trips Which Required Months to Accomplish. The Spanish bark San Ignaclo de Loyola Jiow rivals the Italian brig Anita S.. in the platter of long voyages. The bark arrived fat Philadelphia Monday last, 117 days? from Babies d'Olonnes, France, a voyage that is Ordinarily made In three weeks or a month, frhe long voyage was due to the fact, it is ptated, that her master carried her too far south Into the regions of oalms. The Anita S. is the oldest and slowest Balling vessel In the world?a snail's pace is rapid to some of her voyages. Among her record trips are the following: One hundred and forty-seven days from Plymouth to Santos, Brazil; 1W days from Buenos Ayras to Plymouth, 1V!2 days from Cardiff to Montevideo, ZW days from Paysandu to "Bal timore and eighty-four days from Baltimore to Maranham. In UtOl the Anita S. 6ailed from Fort de France for Nantes, France, and ten months were taken up In the voyage. The vessel never got any nearer her destination than Tenerifftt. where she arrived leaking, and transferred her cargo. She is still afloat. The trip of the Spanish bark is rfvaled by that of the schooner Joseph W. Brooks, Vhlch arrived at Havana Monday last. Seventy-four days out from Newport News. Her muster ax ril.es the slowness of her trip to continued calms. Max Weisfleld was convicted In the United States branch of the Police Court today on a charge of selling cigarettes to Henry Moten, a minor. He paid a tine of $10 imposed on him by Judge Scott. WAITED AND FINALLY OOT IT. "Prior to the rime Grap^-Nuts food came upon the market I hid suffered terribly from chronic catarrh of the stomach and had n<^t taken one Ounce of aolid food, but forced to live on liquids for upward of 18 montha," says a Phila. man. "Naturally I was greatly reduced physically and life waa a burden to me. "When Grape-Nuts was first put upon the market It seemed from its description that it was Just what I reQuirwd and had been waiting for, so I began l?s use and began to improve Immediately. X kept up the use of Grape-Nuts, growing stronger Und better until my stomach finally recovered en tirely, and today I can digest any kind of fo^nl Without trouble. All of the catarrh Is gone. I alto feel the effects of the food very strongly in renewed nerve and brain force." Name given by Poet urn Co., Battle Creek, Mich.

MURPHY EULOGIZES SOL DIERS WHO DIED ON THE FIELD. One of the Greatest Battles of History and Loss of Life In One Day Almost Unparalleled. SHARPSBURG, Md.. September 17.?Un der lowering skies the magnificent monu ment erected on the historic battlefield of Antletam by the grateful state of New Jer sey to Its men who fell In the great en gagement was dedicated today. The oc casion was rendered particularly notable by the presence at and participation in the ceremonies of the President of the United States and of Gov. Murphy, the chief ex ecutive of the state which was honoring Its heroes. The special train bearing the Presi dent, Gov. Murphy and their party arrived here at 0:10 o'clock. Gov. Murphy was ac companied by Senators Ivean and Dryden, by several prominent state oificlals and by Ills entire military staff. Special trains bearing nearly a thousand New Jersey sur vivors of the civil war arrived Just after the arrival of the presidential train. Talked at Hagerstown. "I am on my way to accept on behalf of the United States government the monu ment erected to the New Jersey troops who fought at Antletam; but In a larger sense I go to commemorate the valor of every man who, In the day that tried men's souls, proved Ills truth by his endeavor in the service of the national government. (Cheers.) "It Is a peculiar pleasure either today or any other day to see in the audience the men who wear the button which shows that they fought In the Grand Army of the Re public. They left to us not only a reunited country, but the memory of the great deeds by which it was made united. The times are easy now compared to what they were in the days from '(il to "05. but we need to display Just exactly the same qualities that made you win out under the lead of Abra ham Lincoln. "1 want to say how glad I am to see the Grand Army of the Republic, and next the Grand Army I want to greet the future; I want to say how glad I am to have seen the children. "Just one word In closing. As I said, we need to display the same qualities now that you needed In '(11. A man was not worth anything then If he was not patriotic and decent. That was first and that was not enough. No matter how patriotic he was, If he ran away he was no good. In addi tion to decency he had to have the quali ties that would make the decency effective. "It Is Just the same way now In civil life. A man must be decent, honest, up right, or he Is a bad citizen, and If he has not the qualities of hoissty and decency in him, then the abler he is the worse he is. I do not oare liow able a man is. If he has not the root of clean living In him, If he is not a decent and honest man. If he Is a bribe giver or a bribe taker, If he Is a man who defrauds in public or private life, if he Is a bad husband, bad father, bad son, then he Is poor stuff out of which to make a citizen. You of the Grand Army left us what the victory !n no other war left us. You left us the right of comradeship with the vanquished; you left us the right of brotherhood with the men who wore the gray, and nothing pleases me more than the fact that to an audience composed of Union veterans one can always make the appeal for the men who fought against you, and whose sons are now as loyal as we are to the flag of our common country." (Ap plause.) Bound for the Field. At 10 o'clock the President and Gov. Murphy accompanied by Senators Kean and Dryden. their entire party and hun dreds of citizens, left Sharpsburg station for the famous old Dunkard Church on the battlefield of Antletam. There the brigades of veterans formed In columns of fours and escorted the President, Gov. Murphy and distinguished guests to the monument. The monument is In the form of an ornate Corinthian column of granite forty feet high, surmounted by an heroic figure in bronze of an officer with upraised sword leading his men in charge. The figure Is Intended as a representation of Capt. Irish of the 13th New Jersey Volunteers, who was the only New Jersey officer killed at Antletam. After the assemblage had been called to order by James O. Smith of the New Jersey mounment commission and an Invocation had been pronounced by Rev. I>. R. Frazer of Newark. Mr. Smith re ported to Gov. Murphy the final work of the commission. On behalf of the state of New Jersey Gov. Murphy accepted the monument in the following address: Address of Gov. Murphy. Gov. Murphy of New Jersey spoke as follows: "We are met today on this famous bat tlefield of the civil war to dedicate a monu ment erected by the state of New Jersey, In memory of her dead, who gave their lives to the nation on this hard-fought field. Hither have come the comrades of those who have here died to Join with a later generation in doing honor to those whose glory It was to die for their country. "In erecting this monument New Jersey has but followed a custom observed by all nations from the beginning of history. The old world and the new are filled with these tributes of affection and honor. In the city of London a noble shaft, surmounted by the figure of Nelson, rises high in mem ory of the gre|t victory of Trafalgar. 'In Paris the Column Vendome speaks of the mighty Napoleon. In the beautiful Unter don Linden In Berlin a statue of the great Froderlck compels the admiration of every passer by. In our own land and In our chief city the tomb of Grant and the stat ues of Sherman and Farragut, and In our beautiful capital the Imposing statues that adorn Its squares are expressions of a na tion's gratitude. In most oltles of the north the soldiers' monument keeps alive the memory of those awful times in the early* sixties, when the nation's life was In pml, and on many battlefields of the war monuments to the dead of certain regiments or brigades or to some brave and loved commander have been erected by their surviving comrades. "New Jersey has departed somewhat from the custom of other states, and has placed on this field of Antletam a monument to all her soldiers engaged In tills most Im portant battle. "They should be mentioned on this oc casion. Regiments That Participated. "They were the 1st New Jersey Brigade, composed of the 1st, the 2d, the 3d and the 4th Regiments of Infantry, who were hardened veterans of the peninsula cam paign, where they won renown under that bravest and most brilliant of New Jersey soldiers?the Immortal Kerney. There were no finer troops for discipline and courage in the Army of the Potomac than the 1st New Jersey Brigade. Upon their battle flags are Inscribed all the battles in which that most superb of all our armies was engaged. Beginning with Bull Run, the list to the number of forty-three, ineludes Gaines Farms, Malvern Hill, Ma nassas. Chantllly, Antletam, Fredericks burg, Gettysburg, Wilderness, Spottsylva nla. Cold Harbor, Petersburg and the sur lender of Lee at Appomattox. Through all this long and arduous service they were frequently complimented In orders for their courage, and they returned to their homes at the close of the war, a small fraction of those who enlisted at the beginning, with a record so glorious that after the lapse of forty years no Jerseyman can think of it without a feeling of pride that they belonged to his state. "In addition to the four regiments, of which I have spoken, the list of New Jer sey troops engaged in the battle includes Battery A. 1st Regiment Artillery, better known as Hexamar's Battery. This bat tery. originally organized as a part of the militia force of the state, tendered It* ser vices to the governor on the breaking out of the rebellion in 1861. It was assigned to the 1st New Jersey Brigade, and after ward to other brigades in the Army of the Potomac, participating in most of its bat tles from West Point in May. 1862, to Ap pomattox in April, 1865, and always with credit to itself and the state. Story of the Thirteenth. "The remaining regiment to be men tioned is the thirteenth. A natural modesty makes it difficult for me to speak of the deeds of this regiment, In which It was my privilege to serve; but a proper considera tion for others and the exceptional record of the regiment prevent my remaining silent. "The regiment was organized as one of five regiments required as the quota of the state, as indicated in a telegram from the Secretary of War, dated July 8, 18(12. It was quickly recruited and was fully organized, equipped and officered Ly August 25, when It was mustered into the service of the United States. It left Newark August 31, 18o2. for Washington, where it arrived Sep tember 2. and went into camp on Maryland Heights. It was assigned to the 3d Bri | gade, 1st Division. 12th Corps, and imme diately moved forward with the Army of the Potomac on the Maryland campaign. Seventeen days after leaving home it en gaged in the battle of Antletam, where it lost 149 in killed and wounded. After An tletam came Chanceliorsville and Gettys burg, and then the transfer to the western army under Sherman. The campaign to Atlanta followed, and then the memorable march to the sea, alter which came the campaign through the Carolinas, the final peace, the march to Washington, the grand review and the muster out. Through all its service the record of the 13th Regiment is wholly creditable to tne state from which It came and the nation for which it fought. "i'hls completes the list of the New Jer sey troops actually engaged1 in the battle of Antletam. Their mention would not be complete if I did not refresh your memory with a statement of the fact that all the New Jersey troops who fought on this field were here from motives of highest patri otim. There came a time later in the war when the states found It difficult to respond to the call of the government for troops, and bounties had to be paid, at first of moderate and afterward of large sums, to secure enlistments, and many millions were expended on this account. But no bounties were paid in New Jersey until after the battle of Antietam was fought. The fact that the nation was in danger was sufficient to enlist the service of every New Jersey soldier who fought in this battle. To their lasting honor let this fact be recorded. Loyalty of New Jersey. "The support which the state of New Jer sey gave to the general government was constant and loyal. Her war governors Charles S. Olden, Joel Parker and Marcus L. Ward, differing in their political affilia tions, but united in their patriotic purpose held up the hands of the President and sus tained the army in the field by responding with promptness to every call made upon them. The state not only furnished all the troops required by the various calls of the President, but sent a surplus of over ten thousand, the number actually furnished being N8.303. It looked after the wife, the depeudent children or the widowed mother of the absent soldier, expending in this way over two and a quarter millions of dollars, and, above all, it gave at all times, even in the darkest hours of the conflict, a moral support to the Union cause that was gen uine and unfailing. "The healing Influences of time have re moved the redness from most of the scars made by the war. It is difficult for some of us who do not like to feel that we are old, or growing old, to remember that forty-one years have passed since the battle whose anniversary we celebrate today. It is high ly proper on this occasion to tell again the story of that important event." Governor Murphy then quoted from an address made on the field a year ago by General E. A. Carman, the old colonel of the 13th Regiment, giving a history of the en gagement. Terrible Tale of Death. " 'The battle of Antietam was in some re spects the greatest and most momentous battle of the civil war. Gettysburg alone exceeded it in the number killed and wound ed, but that was a three days' light. As many were killed and wounded in one day at Antletam as In any two days at Gettys burg. There were a less number killed and wounded in the two days at Chlckaniauga, the greatest battle of the west, than in the one day at Antietam. In percentage, reduc ing the loss to an equation of one day, we have 20 per cent for Antietam, 0 per cent for Chlckamauga and 7 per cent for Gettys burg; that is to say, that the fighting at Antietam was twice as desperate as at Chlckamauga and three times as desperate as at Gettysburg. Over 03,000 men were engaged, and the loss In killed and wounded numbered 20,866. It was the bloodiest day In American history. " 'The result of the victory prevented the recognition of the confederate states by England, which would undoubtedly have oc curred had the Union forces been defeated, and It was followed by the proclamation of emancipation.' " Governor Murphy then spoke of the cost of the war, which in money had been esti mated at over $0,750,000,000, nearly twice the valuation of all the property, real and personal, of the eleven relrelllous states, and fpre than six times the value of all the aves owned by the then slave-holding states. The cost of the war in lives he stated to be 350,528. He spoke of the sacrlflces made In the war time by the people of the north, and the Inestimable services of the great figures of that day, many of whom he mentioned. He closed as follows, addressing President Roosevelt: "Mr. President, the state of New Jersey in grateful commemoration of the highest sacrifice of her patriotic sons has erected this monument to her dead on this field. In her name I present it to the nation through you." President Roosevelt, as he arose to accept the monument on behalf of the federal gov ernment was accorded an ovation. He spoke as follows: The President's Address. Governor Murphy, and you. veterans of New Jersey, and you, men of the Grand Army, and all others here. I greet you: I thank you of New Jersey for the monu ment to the troops of New Jersey who fought at Antletam, and on behalf of the nation I accept the gift. We meet today upon one of the great battlefields of the civil war. No other battle of the civil war lasting but one day shows as great a per centage of loss as that which occurred here upon the day on which Antletam was fought. Moreover, In its ultimate ejects this battle was of momentous and even de cisive importance, tor when it had ended and Lee had retreated south of the Poto mac, Linooln forthwith published that Im mortal paper, the preliminary declaration of emancipation; the paper which decided that the civil war, besides being a war for the preservation of the Union, should be a war for the emancipation of the slave, so that from that time onward the causes of union and of freedom, of national great ness and Individual liberty, were one and the same. Men of New Jersey, I congratulate your state because she has the right to claim her full share In the honor and glory of that memorable day; 'and I congratulate you. Governor Murphy, because on that day you had the high good fortune to serve as a lad with credit and honor in one of the five regiments which your state sent to the bat tle. Four of those regiments, by the way, served In the division commanded by that gallant soldier. Henry W. Slocum, whom we of New Tork oan claim as our own. The other regiment, that in which Gov ernor Murphy served, although practically an entirely new regiment, did work as good as that of any veteran organization upon the field, and suffered a proportional loss. This regiment was at one time ordered to the support of a division commanded by another New York soldier, the gallant Gen eral Greene, whose son himself served as a major general In the war with Spain, and who is now, as police commissioner of New York, rendering as signal service in civil life as he had already rendered In military life. If Issue Had Been Different. If the issue of Antletam had been other than It was, It is probable that at least two great European powers would have recog nized the Independence of the confederacy; so that you who fought here forty-one years ago have the profound satisfaction of fooling that you played well your part in one of those crises big with the fate of all mankind. You men of the Grand Army by your victory not only rendered all Ameri cana your debtors forevermore, but you rendered all humanity your debtors. If the Union had been dissolved, If the great edi fice built with blood and sweat and teaxs by L mighty Washington and hla compeers bad - At gone down In wreck and rulg^ the result would have been an incarctftaMe calamity, not only for our people?an^ myst of all for those who, in such event. Would have seem ingly triumphed?but for all mankind. The great American republic would have become a memory of derision; andithe failure of the experiment of self-government by a great people on a great scale would liave delight ed the heart of every foe of republican in stitutions. Our country, now great and so wonderful, would have been split into little Jangling rival nationalities, each with a history both bloody and contemptible. It was because you. the m<?n who wear the button of the Grand Army, triumphed in those dark vears that every American now holds his head high, proud in the knowledge that he belongs to a nation whose glorious past and great present will be succeeded by an even mightier future; whereas had you failed we would all of us, north and south, e;i?t and west, be now treated by other na tions at the best with contemptuous toler ance; at the worst with overbearing inso lence. Effect cf Success of Union. Armies. Moreover, every friend of liberty, every believer in self-government, every Idealist who wished to see his ideals take practical shape, wherever he might be in the world, knew that the success of all in which he most believed was bound up with the suc cess of the Union armies in the great strug gle. I confidently prediot that when the final Judgment of history is recorded it will be said that In no other war of which we have written record was it more vitally es sential for the welfare of mankind that vic tory should rest where It finally rested. There have been other wars for individual freedom. There have been other wars for national greatness. But there has never been another war in which the issues at stake were so large, looked at from either standpoint. We take Just pride In the great deeds of the men of 177?, but we must keep in mind that the revolutionary war would have been shorn of well-nigh all its results had the side of union and liberty been de feated In the civil war. In such case we should merely have added another to the lamentably long list of cases in which peo ples have shown that after winning their liberty they are wholly unable to make good use of It. It now rests with us in civil life to make good by our deeds t-he deeds which you who wore the blue did in the great years from 'CI to *<15. The patriotism, the courage, the unflinching resolution and steadfast endur ance of the soldiers whose triumph was crowned at Appomattox must be supple mented on our part by civic courage, civic honesty, cool sanity and steadfast adher ence to the Immutable laws of righteous ness. You left us a reunited country; re united in fact as well as in name. You left us the right of brotherhood with your gal lant foes who wore the gray; the right to feel pride in their courage and their high fealty to an Ideal, even though they warred against the stais in their courses. You left us also the most splendid example of what brotherhood really means; for In your careers you showed in practical fashion that the only safety In our American life lies in spurning the accidental distinctions which sunder one man from another, and In paying homage to each man only be cause of what he essentially is; in stripping off the husks of occupation, of position, of accident, until the soul stands, forth re vealed, and we know tho man only because of his worth as a man. No Patent Device for Securing Victory. There was no patent device for securing victory by force of arms forty years ago; and there Is no patent device for securing victory for the forces of righteousness In civil life now. In each case the all-import ant factor was and is the character of the Individual man. Good laws In the state, like a good organization In an army, are the expressions of national ' character. Leaders will be developed In military and in civil life alike; and weapons and tactics change from generation to generation, as : methods of achieving good government j change in civic affairs; but the fundamental qualities which make for good citizenship do not change any more than the funda mental qualities which make good soldiers, j In the long run in the civil war the thing that counted for more than aught else was the fact that the average American had the fighting edge; had within him the spirit which spurred him on through toil and danger, fatigue and hardship, 'to the goal of the splendid ultimate triumph. So In achieving good government, the fundament al factor must be the character of the aver age citizen; that average citizen's power of hatred for what Is mean and base and unlovely; his fearless scorn of cowardice j and his determination to war unyielding against the dark and sordid forces of evil. The continental troops who followed Washington were clad In blue and buff, and were armed with clumsy, flintlock muskets. You, who followed Grant, wore the famous old blue uniform, and your weapons had changed as had your uniform; ahd now the men of tho American army who uphold the honor of the flag In the far tropic lands are yet differently armed and differently clad and differently trained; but the spirit that has driven you all to victory has remained forever unchanged. 80 It Is In civil life. As you did not win in a month or a year, but only after long years of hard and dangerous work, so the fight for governmental honesty and ef ficiency can be won only by the display of similar patience and similar resolution and power of endurance. We need the same type of character now that wan needed by the men who with Washington first In augurated the system of free popular gov ernment, the system of combined liberty and order here on this continent; that was needed by the men who under Lincoln per petuated the government which had thus been Inaugurated In the days of Washing ton. The qualities essential to good citi zenship and^o good public service now are In all their essentials exactly the same as In the days when the first Congresses met to provide for the establishment of the Union; as In the days, seventy years later, when the Congresses met which had to provide for Its salvation. There are many qualities which we need alike In private citizen nnd In public man, but three above all?three for the lack of which no brilliancy and no genius can atone?and those three are courage, honesty and common sense. The benediction was pronounced by Rev. H. W. McCormack of New Jersey, a vet eran chaplain. A greater part of the afternoon was spent by the President In an Inspection of the points of historic Interest on the battle field. INDEX TO ADVERTISEMENTS.
