DAY OF SACRED MEMORIES Address at Arlington Today by Corporal James Tanner. THE SOLDIERS OF ALL WARS ! Words of Praise for Those Who Offered | TV/vJr *li i amch Xii vcs upua xxi taxof Country. Corporal James Tanner, past eommanderin-chief of the Oram) Army of the Republic. was the orator at Arlington today. His memorial address, in which he paid a splendid tribute to the young soldiers of the war with Spain, as well as the grim old fighters of the sixties, was punctuated throughout with hearty applause. He said: after destroying the Russian fleet, he went first to a sacred shrine and made solemn sacrifice to the spirit of his fallen comrades When Gen. Nogi had Rained his great victory at Port Arthur, he went to the highest point in that vicinity, and, with gaze uplifted to the heavens, he devoutly thanked his dead comrades for the result achieved. So It is that we come together today to hnnur nnr rlfml anil cn it |u fhof fho paganism of the east and the Christianity of the west have a common point of meeting. This Is the holy day of all the year to the Grand Army of the Republic. It Is the one day when our comrades occupy the center of the stage. It Is rightly theirs. Proud as the proudest In their midst of the majesty of the re public In all respects, its vast area, Its great resources, its mighty industries, its advancement In all the arts and sciences, the surviving veteran feels today in the innermost recesses of his heart that much of this would not have obtained If during the four years of blood and hardship, of suffering and death, he and his comrades had not stood a solid wall of patriotic valor battling for the life of the nation. We honor ourselves in honoring our dead today. The benefit Is all for the living and for the generations that will succeed us. Over this broad land today millions of our fellow citizens have laid aside the daily duties of life, and In solemn procession, with bugles calling and beat of drum, with song and speech, in the great cities and in the hamlets by the countryside, they seek to do honor to our loved ones gone before. First Memorial Day. Those who would fall to honor the services. sacrifices and the memorv of those who died to preserve their country as a mighty nation of states, would evidence a weakness which, thank God, is not inherent in our nation, and can never develop as a characteristic of our brave and loyal people. In the long as*1, when the Black Eagle of | Illinois, the greatest volunteer soldier of his time. John A. Logan, issjed, as commander-in-chief of the Grand Army, his order dedicating this day as Memorial day, many short-sighted souls deprecated the wisdom of the act, criticising it as calculated to keep alive the animosities of the war. How greatly mistaken they were we all know now. and have for many years. I said then that I knew one old mother who. if the fortunes of war had sent her boy into a soldier's grave instead of returning him to her sadly shattered, would have had no bitterness toward her stricken sister in tne souin. wnen sne went out 10 laurel her lost one's grave, but tihat ratlier there would have been an electric sob of sympathy, running from the grave under the maples of New York to that under the magnolias of Louisiana. I think I am no misinterpreter of public sentiment when I declare that not only our people generally, but my surviving comrades as a mass, have broadened tremendously since our days of warfare. I go so far as to assert that 05 per cent of the membership of the Grand Army cheerfully concede today that the vast majority of the men who stood in battle against us under the stars and bars were as sincere in the course they pursued as were we of the I'nion host. But conceding that we still maintain that It is lncontestibly true that one side was wrong, awfully wrong, one side, and one side only, was rignt. and that was tne nation's side, and the God of Right proved the truth of our contention at Appomattox. Preservation of the Union. In the physical contests In which the nations of the world iiave engaged since time began principles have told. In our conflict we fought on a broad line. Our opponents contested for an oligarchy of the south. Their central idea was a confederacy and the perpetuity of slavery. Ours was the preservation of the Union, simply and solely that, at first. In the progress of the contest we reached a point where nothing less than freedom for all people who walked under the stars and stripes was an added .1. IV.V..1 . .k SlllUUUIflll. They are woefully wrong who declare that that contest was entered upon for the abolition of slavery. Abraham Lincoln truthfully stated that the primal object was the preservation of the Union. The freedom of the slaves became the secondary issue, and it did not come until the slaves had rendered valuable service to the Union cause, resulting in many of them finally entering into the conflict of battle when we justly took the position that a class of men, many of whom had risked their lives for our flag, many of whom had lost their lives in Its defense, could not in the justice of God be held in slavery under Its folds. Time will not permit, nor have I the disposition to go into the details of that mighty struggle, but in the memory of those of you to whom those days and deeds are simply history 1 would leave these tremendously Impressive facts. The north and the south contested on two thousand fields of battle and skirmish. Dead on the field, or dead In hospital or prison pen, me i niuu lorces leu or I heir comrade?. Besides these, a vast army of crippled and permanently diseased comrades and hosts of widows and fatherless children. We seemed to be repeating the history of l'haraoh ? time?in so many homes did the first born lie dead. A vast difference in po'nt of view has existed ever since between those who endured and those who merely observed. It relates to tlie cost of the war, and I am frank to say In this great presence that my very soul revolts when 1 hear men speak of the cost of the war and undertake to put it In .dollars. On this occasion, so sacred to vis. 1 refuse to consider the cost of the war on any financial line In the slightest degree. The real cost of the war. Its michtv cost, the only cost which ought to rise in tile thought and to the lips of patriotic men when they spe3k of what the war cost, should he computed in relation to the splendid manhood of the nation, south and north, which went to premalure graves in that mighty conflict. If it had not been for that war. and its awful holocaust, there would have been at least three-quarters of a million more of homes in this country than exist today. "After Appomattox" Pictured. i turn irora mis u> :i>k your attention. [or a moment, to what I may term the compensatory side of the question. What gathered we as the fruit of this great struggle? A single glance southward. A little ltss than a year ago, in a city of th? northwest. 1 heard from the lips of an eminent divine a graphic descilption of a painting he had seen somewhere In the south. On the canvas was portrayed the figure of a man in citizen's garb, standing with bowed head and despondent mle.i by a horse whose bridle rein hung loosely on his arm. The painting was entitled "After Appomattox.'' It rvp?*ented Gen. I.ee and his war horse, "Traveller." My reverend friend was eloquent and pathetic as he undertook to describe to us the thoughts In the mind of Lee as he stood there sorrowfully Contemplating the loss of hle-^cause, the ruin of his ambition, the defeat of the confederacy. Following him, I said to the audience there assembled, as I say to you gathered here today under the ancestral aks of Lee that If he could have pierced the veil of the future but for the years you and I have seen Inscribed on the tablets of time, his despondency could well have changed to exultation, for then he would have . nown that when the confederacy die* at Appomattox the south In. all material respects, so far as relates to development, progress, improvement, wealth, was by the force of our conquering arms propelled forward a century In advance of any point she could have reached under the order of things prevailing in 1WX>. It is settled for all time that we are a nation instead of a confederation of states, a NATION, and the letters, if you please, as large as possible?a nation that shall exist wh.ie tirm- lasts and until Almighty God shall call the roll of the governments of the earth. Duty Well Performed. We have also a consciousness of duty done, the rapturous realization of the fact that all who follow us are our debtors, and that when we shall pass over into the beneficent regions of eternal peace, and report there to the founders of the republic, we can meet them front face, with heads erect, conscious that we did our duty; that we preserved to the fullest extent what the fathers had founded; that we made progress; that we lifted the flag higher than it had ever been lifted before, and that we vitalized the forces of civilization and < nristianlty anil made them more powerful than they had been. In the meed of praise we bestow today let there be a generous share for those who at home so loyally held up our hands In every possible way, and of that praise, in common justice, give by far the larger amount to the women of our time. Mortal lips were never able, and never will be able, to do them justice. With courage equal to the Spartan mothers, they sent their loved ones forth to the conflict, and In full accord with the mothers of centuries ago, who handing their sons their war shields, gave them the simple injunction. "Return with it or on It." Theirs was an anxiety and a continued agony beyond what we in the field knew. We knew the worst when night fell. Hesides that we had much of pleasantry in the camp; we had the diversions of march and the fierce, all-engrossing excitement of the battlefield. They. If they learned that we had been safe on a certain date, knew not what might have occurred since, so the heart agony continued. Unceasingly they labored for our comfort in the field and to keep the home going, and when we came back their loving and pitying liearts took us in. and in so many instances, where our lives seemed hopelessly broken, they inspired us with the courage to defy adverse fate and to endeavor to make a man's fight for a man's place in the world. To many of us it was Riven to know In our mortal existence, through long years of loving association, the material of which God's angels are composed. War's Great Compensation. A few days ago, in speaking of this day and of the address which he is probably delivering this moment at Indianapolis, the President said that, while the day Is pre-eminently the day of the Grand Army, ana wnue, 01 course, we ieu rignuy u great sense of loss in the death of our comrades, still there was large compensation therefor, for they died gloriously and for a great purpose, and that he thought our greater regret and grief might well be for the wives and the children they left behind who suffered such irreparable loss. I agreed with him, and I did not hesitate to Inform him that the next move of the organized forces of the Grand Army would be when Congress meets again, and it will be in an effort to give the widows of our comrades something more than or J12 per month. He will help us. No man among us realizes more fully than Theodore Roosevelt that while bououets of flowers and speech are fragrant and pleasing, bread is the first necessity. I have a word of reproof to utter to my comrades who survive. It is over fortytwo years since the bugles sang truce at Appomattox and flags were furled. I find that many of our comrades speak Impatiently of the ignorance or indifference manifested by the people of today to a considerable extent regarding the events of those times. I would ask them to pause and consider these facts. When the storm of civil war broke upon us, the population of this nation numbered a little over thirty millions of people. Of those millions, it is safe to say that of those who when Sumpter was fired upon had reached years of understanding, even in the .list degree, 50 per cent have passed into the eternal beyond. I very much doubt if I am extravagant in mv estimate that of those thirtv millions only fifteen millions survive today. But today our population numbers upward of eighty millions, thus showing that since the days when we last stood In battle array there have come into life under our flag, by birth or immigration, sixty-five millions of people. Who should wonder, then, that there is so little known in detail of that contest, Nay, nay. my comrades, let us not be impatient or petulant that jnr people and the world at large know so little of the details of that awful struggle. They know of the results In the concrete. They know that we measured up to the full requirements of the hour. They know that we pre served the nation, that we tore rrom tne flag the one foul blotch which besmirched Its escutcheon, and made It In reality what wi- had boasted it was before, the most beautiful flag on all God's earth, and for a verity the "flag of the free." Recent War With Spain. To us, who survived, there came the proud knowledge In '98 that the tide of patriotism was In full flow in the generation following us. The flag was outraged and humanity's cause cried out to us. The response was instantaneous and universal. The old eagle roused himself from the letharty of nearly thirty-five years. In the American Congress, on a resolution placing $r>U,0(JU,!;00 at once In the hands or the president, the roll call produced one unbroken "aye" all down the line. That unanimous expression of opinion from all sections of our country was worth every penny of the fifty millions involved. It was the positive notice that the country was one again, In sentiment and purpose, as well as geographically. The northern boy looked at the Grand Army button In the lapel of his father's coat, and very likely said, "Father, I've got to go," and the old man nodded acquiescence, but with a sudden realization of the agonizing fear he had caused his father and mother In the long ago, a fear he had never measured properly then. And we can easily Imagine that the southern boy thought even more deeply as he gazed upon the confederate button In the lapel of ills father's coat and thought of the faded old uniform of gray, but he said: "Father, it has been your flag since Appomattox and It has been our flag all my life, and I must go." And the old man of the gray nodded his head and ruminated ar\ the whirl of events which had caused him to send his boy out in defense of the flag he had striven for four years to tear down. Sons of Yank and Reb. So it was that son of Yank and son of Johnnie stood side by side in the conflict, supporting, defending each other, though their fathers had sought eaoh other's lives. Mv heart went out last week to a little hamlet in North Carolina, where they were dedicating a monument to the memory of the first to fall, Ensign Bagley. They laid him to rest garbed in the nation's uniform by the side of his father, who went to his tomb shrouded in confederate gray. The flag of Appomattox has been baptized anew in the blood of north and south alike, and is more beautiful than ever before. Many are prone to speak of it as a j little war. Statistically speaking as regards the number of engagements, the cas- j ualties in killed and wounded. I suppose It was. But 1 confess I do not like the term. If It cost but one young American life, if it sent but one American mother prostrate over the coflln of her boy dead in his splendid young manhood, who will venture to speak deliberately of that loss as small? Whatever Its measure, it was all the war our boys had. and they handled it splen uldly, anil lis eriecis were lar-reaciung ana momentous. It ohanged the map of the world. It sundered the veil of provincialism which monarchical governments claimed had hitherto obscured I'ncle Sam and sat him down on a front seat in the parliament of the world the associate on equal terms with kings and emperors. For the rich heritage of the achieved past, for the glorious promise of a great future, for the unity of patriotism in every quarter of the republic, let us Ulank Almighty God. ! 25c Aprons, II 5c.

President Thirkield presented the diplomas. The exercises drew a throng that would have filled the church, where the exercises were held, several times over, but only those who had received tickets were privileged to enter the audience room. In front of the building was a blockade of people hoping for the opportunty to pass through the police lines under the management of Capt. cjArttt T i-a nf the first nre clnct. The church was profusely decorated with largo American flags and with flowers. Announcement was made at the gathering last night that the Howard University would celebrate Its fortieth anniversary November 14 and 15, and at that time elaborate ceremonies would be held to mark the progress of the national university for the colored race In the past, and set high Ideals to be attained In the coming years. Dr. Cadman's Address. After the members of the faculty and the graduating class had marched to their r\ the r?lutfr>rm tn rrmsir furnished 1 r I LH J VII I?I- I by the Lyric Orchestra, and an Invocation had been offered by Rev. John II. Welsh, President Thlr -ield Introduced Rev. S. I'arkes Cadman of Brooklyn, N. Y., who delivered the commencement address. He paid a tribute to the advance made by Howard University, declaring that, compared with other institutions of Its class, it Is not excelled. Ho said he was glad to speak to the colored graduates because he came from the city of their defender. Henry Ward Beecher. The mention of this name brought forth great applause. Beginning with the idea that the differences of race due to color, climate and conditions of life are Increasingly seen to be disappearing. Dr. Cadman took up the facts of history to prove this idea. He spoke of the rise of the great empires of Egypt. Greece and Rome. "And now we are to ask ourselves tonight why the scepter of world power has thus traveled around the world, why these old races lost their power," continued the speaker. "They had great orators, great senators, great statesmen, great diplomats, great business men. But they only made beginnings. They knew how to conquer other x?ces, but co-uld do nothing more; they could not bring them together, assimilate them. If a nation cannot assimilate the races it conquers, it is not fit to be a ruler." Dr. Cadman emphasized the idea that these educated members of the colored race, going out as they were to a race that was new in Its development and progress, had greater opportunities and greater responsibilities than educated men and women of the white race. Not only do the members of the graduating class go out to those who need them, he declared, but they go "THE STQRE OF ALL THE ^ "p ppt/TZ'i KflirM ^? �r&Q08 &mzrz $roffjr atlher ihas created a larger \ D'oc'n^mi/ni * r?. tfrfiv.r v #f>v*ron* <m c?

"You graduates are to remember that you are going out to those whose necessity will draw out your greatest gifts and traits," declared the speaker. The colored race, he continued, needed a Moses, who can show the race its power and its possibilities. Every member of the graduating class should apprentice himself to that idea. As to whether that Is to be attained, the speaker pointed out that other races have had their Moses. There are latent powers In the graduates this year, in the cabins of the great southland, he declared, to raise this black race: but these powers must be discovered and developed.

At a meeting of the Congress Heights Citizens' Association Tuesday evening Gustave Bender reported in reference to the movement to have the trolley line now entering the suburbs extended to accommodate the residents of Giesboro' and the workmen of the Firth-Sterling Steel Company. O. A. Emmons, the president of the association, who presided, stated that plans with that end in view had been under consideration by the officials of the street car company. He reported that Gen. Harries had been over the road and that recommendations would soon follow. Joseph Smithson explained how an extension of the car line would benefit the residents of Washington Highlands. After other members of the association had indorsed the proposition the subject was referred to the committee on railways, with instructions to have a conference with the officials of the street car company and learn what action is to be expected from them. President Emmons muitioned that a large switch will be installed on the Congress Heights line at a different location than at present, which will result in a ten-minute schedule for the street cars. Messrs. Robert E. Cook and W. VV. Price were named as members of the railroad committee to assist Chairman P. J. Walshe.
