THE ST. JOHN SBUR Y CALEDONIAN, SEPTEMBER 25, 1901.
fly Captain. The beautiful tribute to the martyred 1 incoln, by Walt Whitman, was used at many memorial services last week. It is a classic in our poetic literature and especially appropriate at this time. O Captain, My Caf tain, our fearful trip is done. The ship has weathered every rock, the prize we sought is won. The port is near, the bells I hear, the people are exulting While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim ana oaring. But O heart ! heart ! heart ! O the bleeding drops of red Where on the deck my captain lies, r alien coia ana aeaa. O Captain, My Captain, rise up and hear the bells. Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills, For you bouquets and ribboned wreaths lor you the shores a-crowding. For you they call the swaying mass, their eager mces turning. Hear Captain, dear father, This arm beneath your head, It is some dream that on the deck You've fallen cold and dead. My Captain does not answer, his lips are pale and still, My father does not feel my arm, he has no pulse nor will. The ship is anchored safe and sound, its voyage closed and done From fearful trip the victor ship comes in with object won. Exult, 0;shores, and ring O bells! But I with mournlul tread Walk the deck My Captain lies Fallen cold and dead. MEMORIAL SERVICE. Notable Addresses at Thursday's Gatherings. The people of St. Johnsbury and those attending the county fair very generally responded to the call ol President Roose velt and Gov. Stickney to honor the memory of the dead President, and the services last Thursday after noon were most impressive and large ly attended. The town authorities had appointed a special committee to arrange for the service in Court House square and the band stand, the soldiers' monument and the entrance to the Court House were most appropriately decora ted. Promptly at 2 o'clock the St.Johns bury Band escorted to the grounds Cham' berlin Post, G. A. R., Palestine Comman dery, Knights Templar, and delegations from Co. D, Vermont National Guard, Sherman Court and St. Johnsbury Court, Catholic Order of Foresters. Besides the fraternal organizations there were at least 1000 people who gathered for this service. On the platform with the presid ing officer, Alexander Dunnett, were ex' Senator Ross, ex-Congressman Grout, Rev. E. M. Chapman, Rev. Fr. J. A. Lynch, W. H. Gilmore, Adjutant-General ot the Vermont National Guard, and Col. Goodale, U. S. A., now on a furlough from service in the Philippines. After music by the band, Senator Dunnett read Gov. Stickney's procla tuation. Prayer was then offered by Rev. E. M. Chapman. Hon. Jonathan Ross was the first speaker, and we give bis address in full. He spoke as follows: Fellow Citizens: At this hour, in the place of his late residence, the remains of William McKin ley, chosen and beloved President of this great and growing nation, are being committed to their last resting place. The cause of his death was so needless, so criminally exceptional, that it is fitting that we and all the citizens ot this nation should pause for a brief time from their usual labors, and pay respect to his memory. Tbnce in less than two score years the chosen and b;loved Presi dent of the nation has been foully murder ed by the bullet of an assassin! All three murders were unprovoked and without cause, and emphatically so in the case of President McKmley. He was of the people, for the people, and with the people, laboring most earnestly to relieve them from their burdens, to give them eniovable homes and happy lives, from his early youth to his dying hour. He was of Scottish descent, born of parents in humble circumstances in 1843, when the halls of Congress, wnen every church, every school-house and every home was vocal with the discussion of the question ol slavery. His sympathies were early aroused and took sides with the un fortunate slave. Earnestly and devotedly he entered upon training, developing and bringing under control all his powers of body, mind and spirit, that ne might become a useful member ot the commun ity. He was broken off in the pursuit of a college education by the financial embarassment of bis father, and at the early age oM8 entered the service of bis country in the civil war. in tnat exact ing service he continued for four years with exhibitions of bravery, devotion and unselfishness. Then he devoted two years to earnest study, preparing to prao tice his chosen orolession. The ten folio W' ing years he spent in the practice ot law, honorably and ably, a school than which there is none better in which to train one's power of mind ; none better in which to become acquainted with the burdens, foibles and rights of mankind; none better in which to learn how to meet, associate with, influence and control all classes under all conditions of life. So ably, faithfully and well did he conduct himself therein, that he won the confidence and respect of the community, and was chosen to represent them in Congress. He was in Congress 14 years, through seven consecutive elections. Another, who was with h'm many of those years, will speak to you concerning the charac ter and quality of the service he rendered. It was most able and emcient, and es pecially devoted to framing such laws that the farmers and producers might receive better prices for their products, and the laboring man more money for fewer hours of toil. Then his state de rnanded his services as governor. In all positions he was faithful, eminent and distinguished. This led to his nomina tion and election as President of the na tion. This is not the time nor the occa sion, in which to speak of the heavy burdens, . delicate and difficult duties, which fell upon him as President; of the war with Spain, thrust upon him by Congress againt his desire; of the con summate skill and efficiency with which it was conducted; of the treaty con eluded at its close; of the acquisition of Hawaii, Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands; of the difficulties in China, of the new and important questions there by raised; ot the courage, ability and skill with which he bandied and disposed of them and many other important and difficult matters. They are all fresh in your minds, and are a part of the history of the nation. . Since the days of Washington and of Lincoln there have not risen so many new, important and far-reaching questions, as have lallen to his lot. It was my good fortune to observe and meet him occasionally when these momentuous questions were pressing for consideration. He was most genial, cor dial and approachable, frank and free in his communications; at once telling you whether the matter you desired was open tor consideration, and, if open, what the circumstances and surround ings were. He at once placed you at ease and won your confidence. He im pressed you with his fairness and im partiality, and that his only desire was to do what was right and best under the circumstances; a patient listener to all one had tcoffer and ready to state any objections which occurred. I was often impressed with the unbounded confi dence, which he inspired in those who were opposed to him politically. On sev eral occasions when some important matter, involving the conferring of deli cate discretionary power, arose in the senate, has a leading democratic senator arisen in his seat and moved to give it to the President, remarking, "We are wil ling to trust him with it. He will not abuse it nor make any improper use of it." Seldom have I known a man in whom all oersons, of whatever political faith or position, had so implicit and un wavering faith. His life as a man, a husband, and a Christian, in every posi tionsome of them the most exact ing, delicate and dimcult was un sullied, above suspicion, above re proach. The grasp of his hand told of his sympathy and his hearty frankness. I can well fancy that on the sixth of September, when greeting and welcoming the thronging crowd, as bis eye caught the apparently disabled right hand of the murderous assassin, he was saying in his mind, "Poor lellow," and gave a more hearty grasp to his lett hand. He reverenced and loved his maker, and earnestly endeavored, at all times and under all circumstances, to be guided by His will. He was a self-made man, in the sense that he seized and dili gently improved every opportunity. His life and usefulness were tbe natural out come of the institutions and laws of this land of the free and home of the brave." May the lessons of this hour inspire the youth of the land most earnestly to strive to live such a life of usefulness, helpfulness and service for others. We may not mourn that he has gone to his reward and received, as we believe, the welcome from his Master, "Well done, good and faithlul servant." We may mourn that he was needlessly cut off in the prime of his manhood, when his ex penence, broad views, and understand ing would have been most useful to this nation and to the nations ot the world. We can only supply the loss, if it inspires the living and coming generations to imitate his unselfish devotion to the best interests of mankind. This is tbe bright side of our institu tions, laws and civilization. If tbe man s purpose is fixed in obedience to the will of his Maker, by faithful, unre mitting endeavor, he becomes "the nob lest work of God", an honest, useful, broadtninded. helpful man. But there is also a dark side. What shall we say ot one, whose life has been ruled by the op posite purpose and a selfish will, his as sassin ? He, too, was born and reared in this favored land. All its opportuni ties, its privileges and blessings were open to him. But their use was very different, and he became a very dinerent man. No sharper contrast can be con ceived, than existed between the two on the tateful afternoon of beptember sixth. William McKinley is overflowing with goodwill to all mankind, even, we believe, touched with sympathy for the pretended infirmity of the assassin s murderous right hand. The assassin withholds the murderous right hand, covered with a handkerchief to conceal the weapon of death, meditating only how he can accomplish the death of the kindest, noblest and most unselfish of men. He extends his left hand for the welcome, kindly grasp, and fires the fatal shots with his right, acts as hypocriti cal and satanic as the betrayal kiss of Judas! U hat a scene and what a con trast! No pen can describe, no pencil picture it. Well may we mourn that our tree institutions, just laws and Christian civilization can be used by the perverted will of man for the production of such a detestable character, and pray God to prevent it in tbe future. It is not more nor better opportunities, more nor better education, that is needed. To the assassins of the great, noblehearted Lincoln, of the scholarly, able, unselfish Garfield, and of the many-sided, broad minded, devoted, tactful McKinley, all the opportunities of the land were open, and all were fairly well educated. More of the spirit of obedience, more of right eousness, more reverence and love for our maker, more love for mankind are demanded. May the lessons of the hour teach all to cultivate and be ruled by these. Then will not William McKinley have suflered a martyr s death in vain Gen. Grout followed with personal reminiscences of the late President, giv ing many interesting incidents of his lile in the House, all showing how splendid ly the man was training himself for the highest office in the land. He showed how Mr. McKinley's position on the tar ff question was vindicated by future events in Congress and quoted from some of McKinley's speeches while in the T 1 ' 1 j J 1 . I . House, in Closing ne coniraswa inc public life of the two statesmen, Reed and McKinley, and showed how much nearer the people Mr. McKinley was by his temperament and nature than the Maine statesman. Both speakers were given close atten tion and the service, which lasted only an hour, closed with the singing of America, and prayer and benediction by Rev. Fr. Lynch. Musician bale ot Lom oany D then sounded taps and the au dience slowlv and sadly wended their way home. .At the Fair Grounds. While the service was in progress at the Court House square a similar one was being held at the Fair Ground. All the festivities of the fair were stopped for an hour and the vast audiencethere gave close and respectful attention to the solemn exercises. Tbe service opened with singing one verse of "Nearer, my God to Thee," led by the band. Presi dent Stiles of the Fair Ground Company then read President Roosevelt's address and introduced Judge W. P. Smith as the first speaker. In closing a most excellent short address Judge Smith said, "Presi dent McKinley is dead ; and yet not dead, for his courage in hours of bis country's peril, his wisdom in national counsels, his loving devotion in domestic life, his gracious and kindly spirit and bis abtd mg faith in God and the Right, will con tinue to live to champion every good r J i iL. r 1 cause, to purny ana sweeten inc iuui spots on the body politic and help to exalt the nation in righteousness. "If this be an hour when it is wise to stop and reflect, it is likewise an hour to make firm resolve, To resolve to sus tain with an unflinching loyalty those to whom by this sad event added re sponsibilities have now come. To re solve to hold up the hands of those upon whom is placed the responsibility ot exe cuting tbe laws. To resolve to do with ever-increasing watchfulness the full duty of citizens to the end that tnis na tion in which every citizen holds a re sponsible, if not always a conspicuous place, shall be purged ot every dangerous and unworthy element. In this hour of bereavement and sor row, mere is one imperaiive ouiy ui least resting upon every true citizen: to maintain a calm and dignified demeanor, to let reason and righteousness rule, to give law and order a larger and more sacred place in all deliberations and with an unfaltering faith in tbe principles es tablished by the lounders of the Repub lic, without passion and without vio lence, move steadily forward to achieve greater, grander and better things than the past has known. "In no more appropriate manner tnan with this high resolve can the citizens of this country observe tbis solemn hour and honor the memory of him whom the people so dearly loved and whose death is this day so deeply and so widely mourned." He was followed by Congressman Fox of Mississippi, a brilliant Southern lawyer who gave a fine address. Among other things Mr. Fox said, "I wish 1 could speak the eulogy for William McKinley which I feel in my heart, but which is unutterable. But there are some things I want to say, standing here in this presence as one of the na tion's representatives. I declare that there is no section of this great Union in which this great blow has fallen with a greater shock or caused more sincere sor row than among the people ot theboutn. Differing from him in some of his views of government policy, we admired him as a great Christian statesman and we loved bim as the great apostle ot sec tional reconciliation. His recent tour through the South was a continuous and enthusiastic ovation. The reception given him in the capital of my own state was marked, not only by the hospitality which we always give to an invited guest, but by the sincere affec tion for a great and good man whom we knew to be our tnend. He recognized that the Southern soldiers who had worn the grav and marched to the tune of Dixie could be as loyal to the Stars and Stripes as tbey bad been to the Lost Cause, and showed his faith hy commis sioning many confederate soldiers to high and responsible positions. Above all this be recognized that we ot tbe South were confronted by the gravest problems, the result of peculiar condi tions, on the solution of which depended our very civilization. He knew that we alone could solve these problems and had the faith to believe that we would, in time, work tbem out tor the best inter ests of all concerned. "My fellow countrymen, the adminis tration of William McKinley as President of tbe United States, is one of tbe highest honor, but great as have been tbe achievements of bis noble lite, be has- lett us a more glorious heritage in his sublime and Chnstlike death. Wnen bis lite work was finished, bravely stepping into the dark valley and shadow otdeath, leaving behind all tbe glories and honors and joys of life, he had the sublime resigns tion and courage to say 'Thy will be done.' And as he felt tbe mighty uplifting of his great soul heavenward, he cried with joy, 'Nearer, my God, to Thee!' As for myself, 1 would not exchange the record ot a death like that for all tbe honors of the earth. The eternal hills of Vermont will pass awav before the memory of that glorious death shall be blotted from the minds of the American people. "As long as we can nave presidents who can live like McKinley and die like McKinley, whatever may happen, we will have the assurance that 'God reigns and the government at Washington still lives.' Congressman Fox was followed by Rev. George W. Hunt, who spoke briefly upon the theme of the hour and then offered praver. The service closed with "America" played by tbe band. Current Comment. Topics Suggested by the Assassination Particular pathos will always attach to this tragic event from the fact that it could scarcely have happened it the fresv dent had not so freely and trustfully mingled with the people, and exposed himself to that very torm of death to which he fell a victim. "Of the people, by the people, for the people" only once, surely was there a President who, so assiduously and with such evident sin cerity, sought to keep in personal touch with the citizens ot tbe workaday world The promiscuous handshaking with the Chief Executive, for which no parallel exists in any other country, atlords an unrivaled opportunity for tbe stroke ot tbe assassin. In no other conntrv would it be allowed, or, if allowed, be possible, To the American people, however, this custom is the expression of one of the most cherished traditions of their na tional life ; and tbe fact, truly pathetic that our beloved President has died martyr to his zealous fidelity to this national observance will give an added luster to his memory, which will brighten with the lapse ot years. I scientific American. It is singular that, just before his life was threatened, Mr. McKinley, in speech at Buffalo, gave indications of an independence ol tbougbt and a coura geous initiative that were not previous ly apparent in his career. It was as the uncompromising champion of the pro tectionist system that he rose originally above tbe level of local polities. The legislation bearing his name dealt the most crushing blow to free trade that has ever been struck in anv country. It embodied a policy which carried the re publican party to the heights pf success and to the depths ot despair, and which after the most startling vicissitudes, is held by its authors to have now trium phantly accomplished its ends. Just as a new school of economical thinkers in the old world maintain that free trade is not to be regarded as an end in itself, but is to be carried out with regard to con siderations of practical expediency, so the author of the "McKinley bill" has declared that the policy ot protection to native industry must be looked at from the same practical point of view. "Isola tion," the President has said, "is no longer possible or desirable," and this is profoundly, commercially not less than politically, of the United States as well as of older countries. It follows that the Americans, like ourselves, have to look, with the growing increase in their pro ductive power, to "the problem of more markets." It is a remarkable admission from so strenuous an advocate of pro tectionism as Mr. McKinley that the United States "must not repose in the fancied security that they can forever sell everything and buy little or nothing." The very success of the President's policy has thus led him to the conclusion that it must be modified, if not abandoned. But of the prosperity to which he bears testimony in tbis striking way there can be no doubt whatever. It is unintelligi ble that the head of an administration with such a record, personally popular and recently approved by the suffrages of his countrymen, should be singled out for assassination, except by a madman. London Times. Through the Danube's Gates. For centuries tbe navigation on the Danube, the largest river of Europe next to the Volga, was greatly hampered by the so-called Iron Gates, a celebrated de file in the river at the confines of Hun gary, Servia and Roumania. At this place the river is crossed from shore to shore in a length of about 8000 feet hy rocky masses, and many a ship went aground in the Iron Gates, which always had been a terror to all navigators. It the most magnificent and greatest river profile in the whole of Europe. During the years 1890 tol89ba scheme was carried out nere wnicn invoivea im mense difficulties. A canal 275 feet wide and seven feet deep was cut through the rocks of the Iron Gates. No less than 14,000,000 cubic feet of rocky masses bad to be blasted and more than 50,- 000,000 cubic feet of stone and earth had to be excavated. A great number of dams, of a combined length of 35.000, 000 feet, had to be built to protect the canal. The expenditure for this work amounted to 12,000,000 florins. Since the completion of this canal the naviga tion on the river has steadily increased and thousands of steamers and barks now sail every year down to the Black Sea. One drawback, however, remained. The current in the Iron Gates is immense, averaging from fourteen to eighteen feet per second, and it was especially dimcult for the heavy ladeu ships to steam up stream through the gates or to tow the barges against the current. It was therefore decided to build a special wire rope steamer for the purpose of towing ships through the defile. The steamer was built at Budapest and has recently been put on the river. Tbe Vasapu, as the steamer is named, is entirely built of steel. It has a length of 1836 feet, is 25 Vi feetlbroad, its draught being 544 feet. It is divided into nine water-tight compartments and has a double bottom, so that even in tbe case of a serious acci dent the vessel will not sink. A wire rope, twenty thousand feet in length and almost one foot in diameter, having a resistance of 84 tons, is strongly an chored to a rock at the upper end of the gates at the bottom of the river bed. This rope or cable runs over a drum on board the steamer. Ihe vessels to be drawn up stream are towed toward the steamer and the cable is then drawn around tbe drum by means of a steam engine of three hundred horse-power. The wire rope vessel has, in addition, two other engines, so as to enable her to run independent of the cable. Each of these two engines has a capacity ot 2ou horse power. The speed of the steamer, with two loaded vessels of six hundred tons in tow, is 1.3 miles per hour when sailing against the current and between four and five miles per hour when going down stream. The steamer has also been equipped with a powerful dynamo, which turmshes electric light and feeds a searchlight. London Daily Mail. Oh What a Difference In the Morning. Will Carleton, the poet and lecturer, in lecture at Northfield recently laid special stress on the necessity of holding one's temper and not becoming easily provoked or disturbed. He intimated that he thought he was tairly successful in this respect, but suggested that it was easy for one to preach but hard for another to practice. Mr. Carleton the following morning went to the local telephone office and attempted to call up a person. Messenger service was necessary, but efforts to communicate were fruitless. He was charged the customary amount of one-half the regular rate and also the messenger fee.
