Twenty-Fourth ? Anniversary
Meeting of the Order.
GEN. CHAFFEE PRESIDED
Vice President Fairbanks Discussed
"Our Country's^ Future."
TOAST TO ABSENT COMPANIONS
More Than Five Hundred Members
Participated?Brilliant Achieve
ments of Founders.
A bugler at Rauscijer's sounded "assem
bly" shortly before 8 o'clock last evening
and men who commanded troops during the
civil war, officials of the government and
others of prominence to the number of
about 500 took places at the banquet ta
ble. Thus began what proved to be one
of the most successful social sessions in the
history of the Military Order of the Loyal
Legion of the United States, District of Co
lumbia Commandery. The latter last even
ing celebrated the twenty-fourth anniver
sary of the date it was organized. Men
who fought through the war and youths
whose fathers had participated in the strife
were in ihe majority of those who consti
tuted the gathering.
I.ieut. Gen. Adna R. Chaffee, who lias
just relinquished the duties of chief-of
staft of the army as the commander of the
District Commandery, presided. On his
right sat Charles W. Fairbanks, Vice Pres
ident of the United States, and at Ills left
was Associate Justice Wendell P. Stafford
of the Supreme Court of the District of Co
lumbia. At the head table also were the
officers of the local commandery. several
o* the most eminent men in army and pub
lic life and special guests. The use of two
halls was necessary to accommodate the
large throng which attended the banquet.
The main room was artistically and ap
propriated decorated with American flags.
\round the walls were large representa
tions of the rosettes worn by the members
of the legion. In the center was a group
of army and navy ilags interwoven. Huge
bouquets of flowers were placed on the ta
bles at frequent intervals.
Prior to the conclusion of the repast
Commander Chaffee, explaining that Mr
Fairbanks had been summoned by the
President to the White House, introduced
the Vice President to respond to tlvs toa?.,
"Our Country's Future."
Remarks by Vice President.
"It would lie very agreeable for me to
spend the evening with the Loyal Legion,
the speaker said. "I have known many of
the members and 1 have never known bet
ter men. And T am reminded that William
McKinley wore a rosette of the order. W hen
his remains wer^ about to be removed from
the city hall of Buffalo, where they hai
been lying in state, there was a halt in the
procession, and some one lifted the cover
over his face and placed in his coat lapel
the button of the Loyal Legion.
"My theme is the future of our country.
What a magnificent theme! There is no
one on this earth wiio has the prophetic
i vision of such a comprehensive sweep to
set the future bounds of the Cnited States.
The future will he great and splendid, be
cause of the service rendered by you of the
war of Isiil-?!?">. In 1861, when Abraham
Lincoln issued his call for troops, it would
have been a rash prophecy for a man, con
sidering the then population of 33,000,000
people, to have predicted that we would
so soon number nearly 85,000,000, and that
our flag would he a power in two hemi
spheres." ,
Three hearty cheers were given for tne
Vice President.
One of the most impressive incidents ot
the evening occurr?-d immediately following
the end of the repast proper. This was the
trooping of the colors, with Captain Robert
Armour and Lieutenant Lyman F. W.
Cushing as color bearers. As the bugle
sounded tha color hearers marched from
the rear of the room to the front, carrying
the (lag of the United Slates and the blue
standard of the commandery. Major Hux
ford formally presented the colors to the
commander. Commander Chaffee received
the flags and they were placed in position
jtist back of his chair.
The toast to the President of the Cnited
States was then drunk, all standing. Next
in Older was a toast to Abraham Lincoln i
and then one to the deceased companions.
Mr. Washington Gardner, representative
in Congress, from Michigan, was Intro- j
duced. He said in part:
"In speaking of the victories of peace. I
am not unmindful that in the wake of war
follow some of the greatest victories of
peace. War is the incarnation of strife, of
discord, of sacrifice, and yet battlefields
have often illuminated pathways to human
progress. In the pathway of the storm, we
see devastation and waste; but when the
clouds roll away, it seems that the sky had
never been so blue, the atmosphere never
so clear. So the political atmosphere of
the country was surcharged with sectional
hate, at the time of the war, and when the
light of peace shone in, we found that the
land had been drenched with human blood
and that a cry of woe had gone up from
every household, north and south. Hut the
great questions that had battled the wisest
statesmen were settled.
The Ideal Citizen.
Justice Stafford, the next speaker, said in
part: .
"Citizenship is the relation between man
and his country. Every new relation adds
something to the interest of life. We pity
the woman who has never known the pain
and bliss of motherhood. We pity the man
who has never held his child upon his knee.
Our ideal man is not an archorite, but a
lover, a husband, a father, a friend, a
patriot, a citizen. The ideal citizen Is a
patriot in the ways and walks of peace A
patriot is one who serves his country be
cause he loves her. There are those two
essentials, the deed and the motive.
"It i* a sublime creation of the heart and
mind Did you eve? think how much has
gone to make up that inspiring conception?
Why, all her past is in it, all the great
deeds that have been done, all the costly
sacrifices that have been made in her whole
history?all these have blended 'o giv?
beauty and grandeur to the idea that (Ills
our minds when we say 'our country. We
think of what she has stood for before the
worla?for liberty, for Justice, for equality
between man and man. We think of her
great achievements?how she shook off .he
foreign voke. subdued the continent and
wiped out with her best blood the single
?taln on her banner, and how she became
the champion of an oppressed people. All
this we see and mean when we say our
country.' " . ... , ,
Senator William Warner of Missouri paid
a tribute to the speakers of the evening and
to Lieut. Gen. Chaffee Dr. Charles W.
Needham, president of George Wasniagton
University, and 9en. John C. Black also
spoke of "the triumphs of this nation.
FINAL PAYMENT ON FIREBOAT.
Commissioner Macfarland Says Noth
ing is Due.
District government officials today ex
pressed Indignation because of the action of
the Harlan & Ilolllngsworth Shipbuilding
Company of Wilmington, Del., in enter
ing wilt against the District to recover
*;{ 300 which they allege to be due as
final 'payment for the new flreboat ire
fighter. In speaking the matter this
morning, Commissioner Macfarland said:
?The District does not owe the con
tractor for the fireboat Firelighter one
cent. Under the contract, the boat was
to toe delivered complete and in good work
ing order May 25. 1006. As a matter of
fact ? through inexcusable delays it \ois
not complete and in good working order
until October 28, 190R, and was not accept
ed toy the Oomrntssioners until that time.
The pumps, which are of course the es
sential feature of the boat for Qreflghttng,
were not completed and in good working
order until the Commissioners accepted the
boat. The Commissioners have withheld
the amount of the penalty provided for in
the- contract because of the fiailure to
execute the contract within the time pre
scribed."
