GIBSON Committee Places "Wreath oil "Washington's Tomb at Mt. Vernon? Other News. Special Correspondence of The Star. ALEXANDRIA, Va? February 22, 1007. Alexandria city is today appropriately celebrating the 17.">th anniversary of the birth of her fellow-townsman and the father of his country, George Washington. The celebration will not be concluded until far into the night. The exercises today included church services, '>and concert and a banquet, and the events scheduled for tonight are sj, big Masonic banquet and a banquet by the Columbia Steam Fire Engine Company. From early this morning the streets have been thronged with visitors from Washington and elsewhere. Many of the business houses and private residences were decorated with flags, and the entire city had a holiday appearance as the flags and bunting were unfurled to the breezes. At noon the majority of business houses closed for the day, and this afternoon the spirit of the occasion seemed to per ^k ? ni' mh|^^H V ft mm .k ^^kb^b A. D. Brockett, Prwfdent, vade every one. while patriotic airs wore being played by a band in. front of the church where George Washington worshiped. The exercises were opened this morning at 11 o'clock, when the executive committee and other members of the George Washington Birthday Association went to Mount Yppnnn on tl?*? iiuinco rnr '" Yf mint "V nr. lion" and placed a beautiful memorial wreath on the tomb of Washington. The wreath was composed of lilies of the valley, h>aeint/.8 and white marguerites. Placed on a metallic easel, it was viewed by a large number of people while it was on exhibition in the rooms of the chamber of commerce, and all who saw it pronounced it excellent. The following committee went to Mt. Vernon to place the wreath on Washington's tomb: Mayor Frederick J. Paff, exMayor K. K. Downham, Charles R. Marshall. Hubert Snowden, K. Kemper. P. von fie wesienaKen, K. >1. Uraliam, J. M. Hill. Harry Hammond, II. B. Catnn, George P. Aitcheson. O. II. Kirk. Thomas Chauncey, W. R. Hamilton, K. S. Jonp<=, Joseph Colvin. Judge R. T. W. Duke, William A. Smoot, jr.: John H. Trim:- r, T. Howard, J. Y. Williams, A. D. Brockett, Maj. W. M. Smith, R. M. I-atham and William }lac Green. Exercises at Christ Church. At about the same time the committee proceeded to Mt. Vernon to place a wreath on Washington's tomb patriotic exercises wore beinc held at Christ Protestant Rrvi* copal Church under the auspices of the Mt. Vernon Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution. The exercises were largely attended, among those in attendance being a large number of members of the Daughters of the American Revolution from Washington. The services were the simple Episcopal services in vogue at the time Washington was a member of that church. Music was furnished by the regular choir, and among those in attendance Included a number of other visitors besides the Daughters of the American Revolution. The old Bible used when Washington was affiliated with the church was used, as was also the old prayer book, which is a codv of the book used when it was changed ^H J. Y. Williams, S4*i'rt't ar j. from prayers for the kins to the first President of America. A sermon appropriate to the occasion was delivered by Bishop Robert A. Gibson of the diocese of Virginia. Bishop Gibson said in part: ttasnaiKiuii w uo lci laniij i~.iikii>ii ill Ills sympathies, and in his public career, but no more so than a great many other men of his time. The number of moral qualities which adorned Washington's character were not at all uncommon with people with whom he lived, the difference i being that he possessed these qualities in greater number and completeness. On the whole there is a part for which one could not say of us exactly foolish to call Washington an Englishman. It would be Just as sensible to say that John Marshall, Rotoert E. Lee and other great men were English. Product of Virginia Civilization. "George Washington was a product of Virginia civilisation. There are two views prevalent about Washington's greatness, one that he was a Virginian and the other that he was an Englishman. "Both of the views are largely represented In Massachusetts. Henry Cabot Lodge takes the ground that he was an Englishman and John Fiske, on the other hand, stoutly defends his indebtedness to Virginia for the qualities of greatness which made him the father of his country. The family of Washington were residents of Virginia for three generations before Washington was born. "At the conclusion of the services a collection was taken up, the funds to be devoted to the restoration of historical old Pohick Church, situated near Mount Vernon. It was through the efforts of the Daughters of the American Revolution that this historic old edifice has been restored to its former colonial condition. Band Concert. The principal feature of this afternoon's exercises was a band concert which was held at the Intersection of Washington and Cameron streets, opposite Christ Church. ? - i I n kHH Hff ^1 hm^^M |m^^K j|% - - dflSiflSI^Hi Harry Hammond, Treasurer. The concert was under the auspices of the George Washington Birthday Association. The concert was given by the Naval Gun Factory Band of Washington, consisting of thirty pieces, under the direction of Prof. Jacob <;. Moody. Promptly at the above mentioned hour the members of the band took their places on the stand, which was profusely decorated with flags and bunting, and played fourteen numbers tothe delight of thousands of people who surrounded the stand. After the lirst seven were rendered there was an intermission of forty-iiv:* minutes. The program rendered was as fallows: March. "The Diplomat." John Philip Sousa; overture.

Those in attendance numbered fully iMX?. The hall was a scene of brilliancy, as the committee having charge of the banquet had left absolutely nothing undone which would have a tendency to detract from its success. The hall was brilliantly lighted, the light of day being obscured by heavy draperies over the big windows. The walls were completely covered with flags and bunting, and at the north end of the hall was a large picture of Washington.

The main oration of the exercises was made by Dr. Harlan, who used as his subject "Municipal Patriotism." After a reference to the importance of patriotism and depicting Washington's birthday as the most national of our holidays, he indulged in an Interesting and searching narration of the structural weakness In the framework of the nation and of the present generation. He also bitterly attacked thp s/i-r-aiitxi honest citizen who lacks In civic pride and municipal Interest. He termed certain political bosses who live "honest l.ves" where politics are not concerned as a "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," concluding by saying no man can be "personally honest" unless he is "politically honest." Dr. Harlan said, in part: "Washington's birthday has been aptly called our "national feast of patriotism.' The essence ol patriotIsm is unselfish devotion to the country's welfare. Virtue gains a hundredfold when it teaches by example! In Washington patriotism became Incarnate; he illustrated by his conduct how patriotism should lnSDire the common soldier and the commander-inchief, the humblest voter and President. "I shall try today to emphasize two principles, or phases, of patriotism, spending most of the time still remaining: upon the second. "First, we must, as Rood citizens, insist uppn applying the same standards to the coliduct of our public men in their public or political acts as we do to their private life and private relations. Synonym of Bribery and Corruption. "About ,4too decades ago there lived in New York city a man whose name. In political matters, was a synomym for bribery and corruption, and for that misuse of public office for private gain for his associates, if not for himself, which now goes by the name "gTaft." He was universally believed often to have traded o fthis allegiance to his party's gubernatorial candidates for his control of the great metropolis; he did not sesitate to sell his party out in a presidential election in order to save his power in New York city. ana Tor years he had robbed the city and often the state of the right to govern themselves. And when that notorious boss came to die more than one decent newspaper in New York, in tha effort to discriminate between the man and the politician, spoke of him as. being 'personally honest." "Some public men think he is a sort of 'Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,' " he continued, "with a limited liability or, rather, with no liability at all, resting upon the the ood Dr. Jekyll of private life for the questionable things which his silent sidepartner, Mr. Hyde, may do in public, political matters.

Other Forms of Dishonesty. "There are other kinds of dishonesty besides Duttlnar one's hand into our neighbor's pocket and taking his money. A man may be ^personally dishonest' who never took a dollar that was not his own, for dishonesty means more than vulgar, common-place forms of stealing.

C, IIM fM" r.t _____ party platform, or by demagogues on the stump. With some politicians a party platform. instead of being a thing to stand upon and carry out after the election, Is like the platform of a street car, only the means by which a candidate 'gets into office.' And stealing is stealing, not only when you break into a bank, or forge another's name, or appropriate funds belonging to others, but quite as much as when, by bribery and corruption, you rob a people of their right to govern themselves. "No public man con properly claim to be 'personally honest' unless he Is 'politically honest.' If a man is to remain 'personally' a 'man of integrity,' his integrity must, like the grain of tlie wood, run right through his entire life. The so-called good citizen is really an accomplice of the bad. The crying ^vil of today is the bad citizenship of good men. We expect bad men to be bad citizens, but when good men are bad clti zens, then public interests go to the bad." Spirit of Self-Sacrifice. In the name of George Washington, then, I would urge you to cultivate the spirit of social service and civic self-sacrifice, and particularly to practice an Intense municipal patriotism, whose key note is not so much the familiar motto "a sweet and seemly tiling it is to die for one's country"?as it is a motto which would run on some such wise as this: "A great and needed thijig it Is to live for one's own city." Localize your patriotism; become possessed not so much witli a new love for the nation, as with a new feeling of responsibility for the town or city in which Providence may cast your lot. To my mind municipal patriotism Is the highest, the hardest and the most necessary kind of patriotism. It Is easy, and to some minds pleasant, to make the eagle scream; but better than all the spreadeagle patriotism?the kind which is eager enough to break out in flags on every national occasion, and is willing to go to sleep the very next day so far as doing anything to make "Old Glory" more glorious by reason of the country it waves over?would be a type of patriotism, which, as the minimum, would call for one hard day's work a i-no t? fnr ( li?i vr\i\i 1 nf liic nn m m l i n i ^ ir nn Vi JC"' 6""" 4"? tUMUIIUIIUJ VXI (.lie I part of every citizen in the land. He is the best American here.who, in the largest sense I of the phrase, intends wherever he may live, to become the best city man in his town; who as much as in him lies, he Intends to help to supply the principles of clean government to the one part of this great country where lie Is to have any real Influence. The great danger constantly besetting the American is an exaggerated national pride. We are tempted to feel, if I may be pardoned the slang, that we can lick all creation. Would that in every large city and town in the country, alongside the strong feeling?I would almost say instead of the strong reeling?or intense national patriotism, there were uppermost in the minds of men a feeling of shame for the present condition of American city government. President Needham's Announcement. The address of President Needham consisted In making announcements of material interest and Importance concerning the university, the most important of which was regarding the new site for the university. Relative to the site he said: "For good and sufficient reasons and consideration the university has sold its new site and turned Its face to the hill tops.
