SOIV, ara1eaxn THE BATTLE OF BUNK'S K HILL. I Last Sunday, the 17th of June, was the 125th anniversary of the Battle of Bunker Hill, that glorious and sanguinary battle having been fought on the 17th of June, 1775, not quite two months after the shot was fired at Concord which wa heard around the world. A few flags in Yuma floated in remem brance of the day, but any general observance of the notable event was conspicuous by its absence. The deeds of soldiers have ever nman admiration and heroic soldiers are ever immortaliz ed. We have searched the tomes of time never to have found soldier Iy achievements which appeal, to us like those of the American vevo lution; we have searched the cata combs and mansoleums- of the old world for heroes to match those of our own dear -America; only to find that when weighed in tho scale of nnr n .1 mi ration thev were found wanting. Miltiades, Alexander Scipio, Caesar, Hannibal, Spartacus Wellington, Napoleon; Prescott Warren, Putnam, Wayne, Washing ton, Jackson! which wins the American's heart and admiration? TEeTSnttie wf-Bv.nkGr Hill can be classed with Marathon and Leuctra, Runnemede and Bannockburn. It will ever be a theme for dreamers and historians. It r,as here the the Sower of the English army first came to realize that "the country bumpkhiF could fight a little," and in the language of the English General Gage, that "tho rebels were not the despicable rabble tbat too many had supposed them to ha." Among the principal heroes (and all who fought at Bunker Hill were heroes) in that fight were Old John GJark, who later licked tho Red coats at Bennington: General Prescott in command of tthe battle; General Putnam, "Old Put," who killed the wolf, rode a hundred mile3 in eighteen hours, rescued a comrade at the imminent risk of hiB own life and did many other reckless and generous acts; General Joseph Warren, who refused a com mand from Prescott and begged to fight that day in the redoubt with tlie soldiers, and well and bravely dibV that illustrious youth acquit himsslf, to-die at end of the day at the hands of an English officer, a former acquaintance. While the English slept the Americans fortified Bunker hill during the night. Powder wa3 a scarce article in New England then and the best had to be made of a meagre supply. When the attack began the British moved forward twenty-five hundred strong, in re gular "lines, rank behind rank,mov ing forward with the impulse of one, firing their muskets from the mo ment of starting. Where the Amer icans lay entrenched all was quite! as death. General Prescott, tall and j majestic, moved in and out among the soldiers, admonishing them to "Keep cool, boys; don't waste your itmciunition; make every shot tell; Ji null n. triszaer until you see UUU v J ' n the whites of their eyes, and aim for their belts. Those Redcoats will never reach this redoubt if you Ifeep cool. 'We'll have them, lads, never ear!" remarks Warren with a rsiiiiic. "Just auaotneKt more ah!" "Fire!4 tboulu $ecotl iu a voice lM tends iho ho blood leaping itough very lieatl: and a feheet of ps foui that lorfg silent vj tl.c Lir:- yK" the euCre; front line of the British advance staggered and fel', every man either dead cr wounded. '-When the smoke of battle cleared away there lay tho Redcoats in windrows like a mower rakes his hay . The second line look the place of the first and the Americans treated them to another volley. Every bullet found its mark and another hundred Fel 1 - Julian Hawthorne says discipline and the trained courage of veterans will accomplish wonders, but there are some things which they cannot do. Only fanatics,or thosewho battle for wha-t they hold dearer than life, con withstand certain slaughter. The English regulars, stumbling among the bodies of their own dead, and still falling every moment could not prevail. They gave back; they turned; they ran; many flung away their arras. That parapet, that had been so silent, tbafc had seemed so easy to overcome suddenly loomed up as high as heaven and as terrible as hell. Before it tho pride of Eng land .gave way;-headlong-dpwn the hill tbey rushed, bearing theirstrug-1 gling officers, furious with shama ; back with them, indifferent to their threats, prayers, oaths, and to the prick of their swords; back to the heltering hillock, to the boats to m . 1 1 the very waters oi the piaciu river. The helpless terror of an nihilation was upon them. Any thing to escape! A good many of the Americans ,vere hurt and not a few were dead, bat the rest remained fiercely tri umphant. They cheered as Prescott walked among them and said lou did well; you can do it again; you gave them more than they bargain ed for." ' The Americans reload; thero is not much powder left but it will deal death while it lasts. The British veterans yielded to the ex hortations of their officers and again faced death. They must succeed this time. "Will you let it he told in England that you were bested by a parcel of raw country bump kins?" was the shibboleth of the officers. When the second advance had reached a distance of twenty five feet from the redoubt the Amer icans again poured a stream of fire and lead into their ranks, and they halted. The British officers could not rally their men under that dead 13' Tire and back they rolled in con fusion with more disaster than they encountered at the first charge. Their knapsacks served as a shelter against the pelting of the lead, but a better shield was a distance of 500 yards which they reached in double quick time. Burgoyue on Copirs hill lowered his glass and shook his head. "Never did I witness such a com plication of horror and importance," was his quaint remark. The counsels of the British were now those of desperation. They decided that Bunker Hill, must be taken even at the cost of the entire British army, and hadthe Amer ican's powder held out they. would nrobablv have sacrificed the entire armv nnd not taken Bunker Hill either. Again the Britishers ad vance, while the Americans have only powder enough for one more volley. Tho British were not long in discovering the Americans'plight, and the battle became hand to hand. General Warren was slain and General Prescott wounded. The Americans gave way to superior numbers and the British. occupied the camp which has cost them so dearly. If dauntless hearts alone could win battles, then with such men as Warren and Prescott at the head of an army it would be invinci ble. We presume that to have look ed upon these intrepid men during the fiercest of the fighting there would have appeared no trace3 of defeat. And what is defeat? The cause which has such defender as fought that day cannot be defeated, though powder run short and bat tles be lost. Bunker Hill was a victory, although the British did camj) among the bodies of their dead that night. Over one thousand British sol diers and ninety officers were killed, while four hundred heroes laid their lives upon the Altar of Amer ican liberty. Concord fight, says Julian Haw thorne, was an act of sublims moral courage; the spiritual element in it overtops the physical, though no thing was lacking to that. Banker Hill was a practical trial of strength and soldierly endurance, according to the forms of war. The ability of the Americana to hold their own i :r,irl All things then seemeu w oe to America, except men to ngnt ior her, and a captain to lead them. Those she had, and no nation ever hadbett'r. The final viclprr wa? long in coming, but when it came it had bsen worth waiting tor. And the spirit of Bunker Hill still lives. We may wrangle over politics and their attendant spoils, but when the honor and glory of America is at stake, 'tis not a son of the revolu tion in all this land who would not go into the trenches, like Warren, and fight until life was extinct. America as a nation cannot live always; Time, that doubted Troy, and will doubt Athens and Rome, will see us going the same road as has went all other nations for, in the language of the popf, There is a moral of all human talcs, 'Tis but the same rehearsal of tho pat, First freedom, and theu glory 'vhen that fails, Wealth, vice, corruption barbarism at last, but the seeds of glory which were planted at Concord and Bunker Hill and budded at new Orleans will blossom and blow, and when our time shall have come' to die, the grand ner that was Greece and the.glory that was Rome will be forgotten in the shadow of our greatness. Bryanism is the greatest protec tion against the smoke nuisance known. The first objectlesson on ''Honesty is the best policy" will soon be given Cuba. It would be well to keep an eye on Doliver, of Iowa. He is a rapid ly coming man. Gen. Buller must be very happy. There are no more rivets to cross to reach Pretoria. Both in the South African as well as in the Philipine wars legs have been found to be as useful as arms. Johnnie Bull has at last recogniz ed superior merit. He has placed a rush order for 50 locomotives in America. If the country believed there was danger of Bryan's election in Nov ember, business would fall off 5 per cent. People would not flock to a $1 Bryan banquet this year. They can have a better dinner at home for the money. Pugilists can have a wide field for fame in China. It is reported there are 11,000,000 Boxers their spoiling for a fight. The Populist party is progress ing some. Bryan and Towne who have been nominated by the fusion- ists are both smooth-faced. The American neople in 1S96 knew what to do to bring prosperity tn the country. It is an insult to their intelligence to infer that they do not know in 1900 how to keep it Just as'a "tick" thrives on a fat sheep, so thrives trusts under pro tective tariff. A lean sheep under free trade has "ticks" but they do not thrive Neither does the sheep The Republican seceders of 1896 are rapidly flocking back into tho Republican fold. Like the Israe lites of old they have found out thev have been following after strange gods.
