INAUGURAL ADDRESS Thoughts Suggested to Benjamin Harrison Upon Assuming the HIGHEST OFFICE IN AMERICA. His Tiews on All Topics of Interest to the People and Politicians. GREAT STRESS LAID ON A FEEE TOTE "Washington, March 4. The following Is the full text of President Harrison's in augural address: There is no constitutional or legal require ments that the President shall take the oath of office in the presence of the people. But there is so manifest an appropriateness in the public induction to office of the Chief Executive officer of the nation that from the beginning of the Government, the people, to whose service the official oath consecrates the officer, hare been called to witness the solemn ceremonial. The oath taken in the presence of the people becomes a mutual covenant the officer covenants to serve the whole body of the people by a laithful execution of the laws, so that they may be the unfailing de fense and security of those who respect and observe them, and that neither wealth, sta tion nor the power of combinations shall be able to evade their just penalties, or to wrest them from a beneficent public purpose to serve the ends of cruelty or selfishness. My promise is spoken; yours unspofcea but not the less real and solemn. The people of every State have here their representatives. Surely I do not misinterpret the spirit of the occasion when I assume that the whole body of the people covenant with me and with each other to-day to sup port and defend the Constitution and the Union of the States, to yield willing obe dience to all the laws and each to every other citizen his equal civil and political rights. Entering" thus solemnly into covenant with each other, we may reverent ly invoke and confidently expect the favor and help of Almighty God that He will give to me wisdom, strength and fidelity, and to onr people a spirit of fraternity and a love of righteousness and peace. A PECTJLIAB CfTEEEST. This occasion derives peculiar interest from the fact that the Presidental term, which begins this day, is the 26th under our Constitution. The "first inauguration of President "Washington took place in Hew Xork, where Congress was then sitting, on the 30th day of April, 17S9, having been deferred by reason of delays attending the organization of the Congress and the can vass of the electoral vote. Onr people have already worthily observed the centennials of the Declaration of Independence, of the battle of Yorktown, and of the adoption of the Constitution, and will shortly celebrate, in New York, the institution of the second great department of our constitutional fccheme of government. "When the centen nial of the institution of the j udicial depart ment br the organization of the Supreme Court shall have been suitably observed, as I trust it will be, our nation will have lully entered its second century. I will not attempt to note tne marvellous and, in great part, happy contrasts between our country as it steps over the threshold into its second century of organized exist ence under the Constitution, and that weak but wisely-ordered young nation that looked undauntedly down the first century, when all its years stretched out before it. Our people will not fail at this time to recall the incidents which accompanied the institu tion of government under the Constitution, or to find inspiration and guidance in the teachings and example of Washington and his great associates, and hope and courage in the contrast which 58 populous and pros--perous States offer to the 13 States, weak in everything except courage and the love of liberty, that then fringed our Atlantic sea board. A SYMBOL OF GKOWTH. The Territory of Dakota nas now a popu lation greater than any of the original States (except Virginia), and greater than the aggregate of five of the smaller States in ITaO. The center of population, when our national capital was located, was east of Baltimore, and it was argued by many well informed persons that it would move east ward than westward. Yet in 1880 it was found to be near Cincinnati, and the new census, about to be taken, will show another stride to the westward. That which was the body has come to be only the rich fringe of the nation's robe. Bat our growth has not been limited to territorv, population and atreresate wealth. marvelous as it has been in each of tnose di rections. The masses of our people are bet ter fed, clothed and housed than their fa thers were. The facilities for popular edu cation have been vastly enlarged and more generally diffused. The virtues of courage and patriotism have given recent proof of their continued presence and increasing power in the hearts and over the lives of our people. The influences of religion have been multiplied and strengthened. The tweet offices of charity have greatly in creased. The virtue of temperance is held in higher estimation. "We have not at tained an ideal condition; not all of our peo ple are happy and prosperous; not all of them 'are virtuous and law-abidinsr. But, on the whole, the opportunities offered to the individual to secure the comforts of life ere better than are lound elsewhere, and largely better than they were here 100 years ago. ONXT GAINED BY NECESSITY. The surrender of a large measure of sov ereienty to the General Government, effected by the adoption of the Constitution, was not accomplished until the suggestions of rea son were strongly reinforced by the more imperative voice of experience. The di vergent interest of peace speedily demanded a "more perfect union.'' The merchant, the shipmaster and the manufacturer dis covered and disclosed to our statesmen and to the people that commercial emancipation must be added to the political freedom which had been so bravely won. The commercial policy of the mother country had not relaxed any of its hard and oppressive features. To hold in check the development of our commercial marine, to prevent or retard the establishment and growth of manufactures in the States, and so to secure the American market for their shops and their carryine trade for their ships, was the policy of European statesmen, and was pursued with the most selfish vigor. Petitions poured in upon Congress urging the imposition of dis criminating duties that should encourage the production of needed things at home. The patriotism of the people, which no longer found a field of exerrise in war, was energetically directed to the duty of equip ping the young republic for the defense of its independence by making its people self, dependent. Societies lor the promotion of home manufactures and for encouraging the use of domestics in the dress of the people were organized in many of the States. AX rKlEBESTCJG INCIDENT. The revival at the end of the century of the same patriotic interest in the preserva tion and development of domestic industries, and the defense of onr working people against injurious foreign competition, i an incident worthy of attention. It is not a departure, but a return, that we have wit nessed. The protective policy had then its I opponents. The argument was made, as now. that its benefits inured to particular classes or sections. If the question became inany sense or at any time sectional, it was cniT- because slavery existed in some of the States. But lor this, there was no reason why the cotton producing States should not have led or walked abreast with the- New (England States in the production of cotton fabrics. There was this reason only why the States that divide with Pennsylvania the mineral treasures of the great south eastern and central mountain ranges should pre been so tarly ia bringing to the smelt-: ing furnace and to the mill the coal and iron from -their near opposing hillsides. Mill fires were lighted at the funeral pile of slavery. The emancipation proclamation was heard in the depths of the earth, as well as in the sky men were made free and ma terial things became our better servants. The sectional element has happily been eliminated from the tariff discussion. "We have no longer States that are necessarily only planting States. None -are excluded from achieving that diversification of pur suit among the people which brings wealth and contentment The cotton plantation will not be less valuable when the product is spun in the country town by operatives whose necessities call for diversified crops, Shd create a home demand for garden and agricultural products. Every new mine, furnace and factory is an extension of the productive capacity of the State more real and valuable than added territory. PROGRESS SOW HANDICAPPED. Shall the prejudices and paralysis of slavery continue to hanir upon the skirtsof progress? How long will those who rejoice that slavery no longer exists cherish and tolerate the incapacities it put t upon their communities? 1 look hopefully to the con tinuance of our protective system, and to the consequent development of manufacturing and mining enterprises in the States, hither to whollv given to agriculture, as a potent influence in the perfect unification of our people. The men who have invested their capital in these enterprises, the farmers who have felt the benefit of their neighborhood, and the men who work in shop or field, will not fail to find and to defend a community of interest. Is it not quite possible that the farmers and the promoters of the great mining and manufacturing enterprises, which have re cently been established in the South, may yet find that the free ballot of the working man, without distinction of race, is needed for their defense as well as for his own? I do not doubt that if those men in the South who now accept the tariff views of Clay, and the constitutional expositions of "Web ster, would courageously avow and defend their real convictions, tfiey wouldnot find it difficult, by friendly instruction and co operation, to make the black man their effi cient and safe ally not only in establishing correct principles in onr national adminis tration, but in preserving, for their local communities, the benefits of social order and economical and honest government. At least until the good offices of kindness have been fairly tried, the contrary conclusion cannot be. plausibly urged. NO KOBTH, NO SOUTH. I have altogether rejected the suggestion of a special executive policy for any section of our country. It is the duty of the exec utive to administer and enforce, in the methods and by the instrumentalities' pointed out and provided by the Constitu tion, all the laws enacted by Congress. These, laws are general and their adminis tration should be uniform and equal. As a citizen may not elect what laws he will obey, neither may the executive elect which he will enforce. The duty to obey and to execute embraces the Constitution in its entirety and the whole code of laws enacted under it. The evil example of permitting individ uals, corporations, or communities to nullify the laws, because they cross some selfish or local interests or prejudices, is full of dan ger, not only to the nation at large, but much more to those whose use this perni cious expedient to escape their just obliga tions or to obtain an unjust advantage over others. They will presently themselves be compelled to appeal to the law for protec tion, and those who would use the law as a defense must not deny that use of it to others. If our great corporations would more scrupulously observe their legal limi tations and duties, they would have Jess cause to complain of the unlawful limita tions of their rights or of violent interfer ence with their operations. The community that by concert, open or secret, among its citizens, denies to a por tion of its members their plain rights under the law has severed the only safe bond of social order and prosperity. The evil works, from a bad center, both ways. It de moralizes those, who practice it, and destroys the faith of those who suffer by it in the efficiency of the law as a safe ptotector. The man in whose breast that faith has been darkened, is naturally the subject of dan gerous and uncanny suggestions. Thqse who use unlawful methods, if moved by no higher motive than the selfishness that prompted them, may well stop and inquire what is to be the end of this. An unlawful expedient cannot become a permanent con dition of government. CLASSES VERSUS MASSES. If the educated and influential classes in a community either practice or connive at the systematic violation of laws that seem to them to cross their convenience, what can they expect when the lesson, that con venience or a supposed class interest is a sufficient cause lor lawlessness, has been well learned by the ignorant classes? A community where law is the rule of con duct, and where courts, not mobs, execute its penalties, is the only attractive field for business investments and honest labor. Our naturalization laws should be so amended as to make the inauirv into the character and good disposition of persons applying for citizenship more carefully and searching. Our existing laws have been in their administration an unimpressive and often an unintelligible form. "We accept the man as a citizen without any knowledge of his fitness, and he assumes the duties of citizenship without any knowledge as to what they are. The privileges of American citizenship are so great, and its duties so grave, that we may well insist upon a good knowledge of every person applying for citizenship and a good knowledge by him of our institutions. We should not cease to be hospitable to immigration, but we should cease to be careless as to the character ot it. There are men of all races, even the best, whose coming is necessarily a burden upon our public revenues or a threat to social order. These should be identified and ex cluded. "We have happily maintained a policy of avoiding all interference with Europeon af fairs. "We have been only interested spec tators of their contentions in diplomacy and in war, ready to use our friendly offices to promote peace, but never obtruding our ad vice and never attempting unfairly to coin the distresses ot other powers into commercial advantage, to ourselves. "We have a just right to expect that our European policy will be the American pol icy of European courts. It is manifestly in compatible with these precautions of our peace and safety, which all great powers namtuauy oDserve ana enlorce in matters affecting them, that a shorter way between our eastern and western seaboards should be dominated by any European government, that we may. confidentially expect that such a purpose will not be entertained by any friendly power. rOLICY EOB THE FUTURE. "We shall, in the future, as in the past, use every endeavor to maintain and enlarge our friendly relations with all the great powers, but they will not expect us to look kindly upon any project that would leave us subject to thedangers of a hostile observ ation or environment. "We have not sought to dominate or to absorb any of our neigh bors, but rather to aid and encourage them to establish free and stable governments, resting upon the consent of their own peo ple. "We have a clear right to expect, there fore, that no European government will seek to establish colonial dependencies upon the territory of these independent Ameri can States. That which a sense of justice restrains us from seeking they may be reas onablyexpected willingly tq'forego. It must not be assumed, however, that our interests are so exclusively American that our entire inattention to any events that may transpire elsewhere can be taken for granted. Onr citizens, domiciled for purposes of trade in all countries and in many of the islands of the sea, demand and will have our adequate care in their per sonal and commercial rights. The necessi ties of our navy require convenient coaling stations, and dock and harbor' privileges. These and other trading privileges we will feel free to obtain only by means that do not in any degree partake of coercion, how ever feeble the Government from which we ask such concessions. But, having fairly obtained them, by 'methods and for par- ' , .THE PASSING poses entirely consistent with the most friendly disposition toward all other powers, our consent will be necessary to .any. modi fication or impairment of the concession. JUSTICE ALONE DEMANDED. "We shall neither fail to respect the flag of any friendly nation nor the just rights of its citizens, nor to exact the like treatment for onr own. Calmness, justice and considera tion characterize our diplomacy. The offi ces of an intelligent diplomacy or of friendly arbitration in proper cases should be ade quate to the peaceful adjustment of all in ternational difficulties. By such methods we will make our contribution to theworld's peace, which no nation values more highly, and avoid the opprobrium which must fall upon the nation that ruthlessly breaks it The duty devolved by law upon the President to nominate and, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to appoint all public officers whose appointment is not otherwise provided for in the Constitution or by act of Congress, has become very burdensome, and its wise and efficient dis charge full of difficulty. The civil list is so large that a personal knowledge of any large number of the applicants is impossi ble. The President must rely upon the representations of others, and these are often made inconsiderately and without any just sense of responsibility. X have a right, I think, to insist that those who volunteer or are invited to give advice as to appointments shall exercise consideration ana fidelity. A high senseof duty and an ambition to approve the service should characterize all public officers. There are many ways in which the conven ience and comfort of those who have busi ness with our public offices may be promoted by a thonghtiul and obliging officer, and I shall expect those whom I may appoint to justify their selection by a conspicuous efficiency in tne aiscnarge oi tneir auties. THE REWARD OP PAETISANISM. Honorable party service will certainly not be esteemed by me a disqualification for public office, but it will in no case be al lowed to serve as a shield of official negli gence, incompetency or delinquency. It is entirely creditable to seek public office by proper methods and with proper motives, and all applicants will be treated with con sideration, but I shall need, and the heads of departments will need, time for inquiry and deliberation. Persistent importunity will not therefore, be the best support of an application for office. Heads of depart ments, bureans and all other public officers, having any duty connected, therewith, will be expected to enforce the civil service law fully and without evasion. Beyond this obvious duty I hope to do something more to advance the reform of the civil service. The ideal, or even my own ideal, I shall probably not attain. Retrospect will be a safer basis of judgment than promises. "We shall not, however, I am sure, be able to. put our civil service upon a non-partisan basis until we have secured an incumbency that fair minded men of the opposition will approve for im partiality and integrity. As the number of such in the civil list i's increased, removals from office will diminish. "While a Treasury surplus is not the createst evil, it is a serious eviL Our reve nue should be ample to meet the ordinary annual demands upon our Treasury with a sufficient margin for those extraordinary but scarcely less imperative demands which arise now and then. Expenditure should always be made with economy and only upon public necessity. "Wastefulness, profligacy and favoritism in public expen ditures is criminal. NO EXCUBE FOR DELAY. But there is nothing in the condition of our country or our people to suggest that anything presently necessary to the public prosperity, security or honor should be un duly postponed. It will be the d uty of Con gress wisely to forecast and estimate these extraordinary demands, and, having added them to our ordinary expenditures, to so ad just our revenue laws that no considerable annual surplus will remain. "We will, for tunately, be able to apply to Hie redemp tion of the public debt anv small or unfore seen excess of revenue. This is better than to reduce our income below our necessary expenaitures wun me resulting choice be tween another change of our revenue laws and an increase of the public debt. It is quite possible, I am sure, to effect the neces sary reduction in oar revenues without breaking down our protective tariff or seri ously injuring any domestic industry. , The construction of a sufficient number of modern war ships, and of their necessary armament, should progress as rapidly as is consistent with care ana perfection in plans and workmanship. The spirit, courage and skill of onr naval officers and seamen have many times in our history eiven ft weak ships and inefficient guns a ratine greatly beyond that of the naval list. Tbat they will again do so upon occa sion I do not donbt, but they ought not, by premeditation or neglect, to be left to the risks and exigencies of an unequal combat. "We should encourage the establishment of American steamship lines. The exchanges of commerce demand stated, reliable and rapidmeans of communication, and urrfil these are provided the development of our trade with the States lying south of us is impossible. THE REWARD OF VALOR. Onr pension laws should 'give more ade quate and discriminating relief to the "Union soldiers and sailors, and to their widows and orphans. Such occasions as this should remind us that we owe everything .to .their valor and sacrifice. It is a subject of congratulation that there is a near prospect of the admission into the Union of the Dakotas and Montana and Washington Territories. This act of justice has been unreasonably delayed m the case of some of them. The people who have settled these Territories are. intelli gent, enterprising and patriotic, and the ac cession of these new States will add strength to the nation. It is dne to the settlers in the Territories, rhp have availed them selves of the invitations of onr land laws to make homes upon the public domain, that their titles should be speedily adjusted and J weir nonest entries couurmea oy patent. It is very gratifying toobserve the gen eral interest now being Btnifested in the reform of our election laws. 'Those who hare been for years calling attention to the G-Sflfr V i- ' ' 'JWrW5 P1TTSBTJKG - " DISPATCH. " THE REVIEWING STAND AT THE WHITE Eressing necessity of throwing about the allot box and about the elector further safeguards, in order that our elections might not only be free and pure, but might clearly appear to be so, will welcome the accession of any who did not so soon discover the need of reform. The National Congress has not as yet taken control of elections in that case over which the Constitution gives it jurisdiction, bnt has accepted and adopted the election laws ot the several States, pro vided penalties for their violation and a method of supervision. Only the ipeffi--cfency of the State laws, or an unfair or partisan administration of them, could sug gest a departure from this policy. It was clearly, however, in the contemplation of the framers of the Constitution, that such an exigency might arise, and provision was wisely made for it. BALLOT PURITY NECESSARY. The freedom of the ballot is a condition of our national life, and no power vested in Congress or in the Executive, to secure or perpetuate it, should remain unused upon occasion. The people of all the- Congress ional districts have an equal interest that the election in each shall truly express the views and wishes of a majority of the quali fied electors residing within it. The results of such elections are not local, and the in sistence of electors residing in other dis tricts, that they shall be pnre and free, does not savor at all of impertinence. If, in any of the States, the public security is thought to be threatened by ignorance among the electors, the obvious remedy is education. The sympathy and help of our people will not be withheld from any community strug gling with special embarrassments of diffi culties connected with the suffrage, if the remedies proposed proceed upon lawful lines and are promoted by just and honor able methods. How shall those who prac tice election frauds recover that respect for the sanctity of the ballot which is the first condition and obligation of good citizen ship Xhe man who nas come to regard the ballot box as a juggler's hat has renounced his allegiance. Let us exalt patriotism and moderate' our party contentions. Let those who would die for the flag on the field of battle give a better proof of their patriotism, and a higher glory to their country by promoting fraternity and justice. A party success that is achieved by unfair methods, or by practices that partake of revolution, is hurt lul and evanescent, even from a party stand point We should hold our differing opinions in mutual respect and, havingsubmitted them to the arbitrament of the ballot, should ac cept an adverse judgment with the same re spect that we should have demanded of our opponents, if the decision had been in our favor. BEST GOVERNMENT ON EARTH. No other people .have a government more worthy of their respect and love, or a land so magnificent in extent, so pleasant to look upon, and so full of generous sugges tion to enterprise and labor. God has placed on pur head a diadem, and has laid at our feet power and wealth beyond defini tion or calculation. But we must not for get that we take these gifts upon the con dition tbat justice and mercy shall hold the reins oi power, and that the upward ave nues of hope shall be free to all the people. I do not mistrust the future. Dangers have been in frequent ambush along our path, but we have uncovered and van quished them all. Passion has swept some of our communities, but only to give us a new demonstration that the great body of our people are stable, patriotic and law abiding. No political party can long pur sue advantage at the expense of public honor, or by rude and indecent methods without protest and fatal disaffection in its own body. The peaceful agencies of commerce are more fully revealing the necessary unity of all our communities and the increasing in tercourse of our people is promoting mutual respect. We shall end unalloyed pleasure in the revelation, which our next census will make, of the swift development of the great resources of some of the States. Each State will bring its generous contribution to the great aggregate of the nation's in crease. And, when the harvests from the fields, the cattle from the hills, and the ores from the earth, shall have been weighed, counted and valued, we will, turn from them all to crown with the highest honor the State that has most promoted education, virtue, justice and patriotism among its peo ple. KOT 1ET ENDED. The Course Alderman Schafer Will Purine Abont Those Fines. Alderman Schafer, of the South Side, ex plains that after fining John Martin ?25 and costs in the milk-shake cases, he re mitted the fine, only enforcing the payment of the costs. He declares tbat if Aldermen Bell and Carlisle have a right to remit law and order fines, he has, too. If he is compelled by the court to pay the fine to the Law and Order Society, he says he will sue Martin to recover the money from him. Alderman Schafer also denies that he owes the State anything.

AT THE BUGLE'S CALL The Old Keystone State Was the First to Respond, and Onr GALLANTBOTS WENT TO THE FEOKT And Gallantly Offered Their Lives to Pre serve the Union. A C0HTEMPT1BLE KICK EEPELLED rSFXCIAL TXLXQBAtt TO TILE DISPATCH.! Washington, March .4. Amid the din and bustle of preparation for the inaugura tion which exended to every house in the 'city perhaps the most frequent observation one heard in any crowd had reference to the Pennsylvania troops. The interest of all classes, from the humblest, contraband to the grand military mogul, seemed to center on the appearance of Pennsylvania's old guard, with their knapsacks, haversacks, canteens, blankets, etc,on the last two occa sions and the anticipation in the coming event was enhanced by the fact that the Governor would command this time. "While the comments on Pennsylvania are of the most flattering character, it is some what tempered by the severe criticisms of the old rebel element at "Washington.who so gladly avail themselves of the opportunity to gratify their hatred and revenge by ex aggeration to the press of this city of the shameful conduct of a few of the many who visited the city, to assist by their presence in attracting a great crowd, from which the aforesaid residents may reap their harvest of extortion and robbery. It goes without saying, that the majority of the residents of "Washington do not hesi tate to charge the visitor most exorbitant rates for their meager hospitality yet, when a few Pennsylvania troops from Pittsburg, last inauguration, upset the wagon of a Virginia Yankee, who charged 25 cents apiece for' apples, and raided a couple 'of saloons, whose gentlemanly proprietors charged 25 cents for watered whisky and then refused to return any change, a great outcry was made in the New York and New England papers by the officials of the city government to whom exaggerated com plaints had been made. A CONTEMPTIBLE KICK. The officers of the Pennsylvania troops were not notified, until their attention had been called to the vituperative dispatches in the press of these cities who were envious of the Pennsylvanians., It is a matter of offi cial record that a careful investigation into the damage done by the troops showed it did not amount to $200. "When it is recalled that nearly 6,000 troops of the State were in the city, the average cash left with the residents by the force probably exceeded f 80,000, the indignation turns to contempt for this exhi bition of Washington hospitality and cour tesy. The colored population are quite solicit ous about "Dem Pennsyltucky Sogers." The pickaninnies of fonr years ago have re tained a lively recollection of their blanket tossing, and numerous old uncles and aunties dread their reappearance as much as that of the "night doctors." The visitors from all States, the dele gation ot G. A. B. comrades, the foreign observers all want to see on Pennsylvania avenue, from the Capitol to the Treasury, the grand column of Pennsylvania's troops marching company front. It brings to the hearts of the old veterans of both armies the days of 1861 to '65. In this connection it may be appropriate to bring to the atten tion of the boys and girls of 1889 some Penn sylvania history that is not told in the school books and histories that we have in New England. A HISTORIC LIE. The statement so generally believed, per haps because so persistently kept from the public that the Massachusetts were the first to reach "Washington City as the call on President Lincoln, is in plain words a historical lie. "We are told in "Bobert Elsmere" that "history is testimony." -I submit herewith the testimony of General Hastings, the Ad jutant General ot Pennsylvania, sub stantiated by the records of the "War De partment at "Washington, and the records of Congress to prove that Pennsylvania was the first to respond to the President's call. There were five Companies of Pennsylvania troops who were the first to reach the citr of "Washington, viz., the Logan Guards, of Aiewistown; tne v asnmgton Artillery ana the National Light Infantry, of Pottsville; the Allen Rifles, of Allentown, and the Binggold Light Artillery, of Beading. These organizations arrived in "Washington, April 18, 1861, and for their promptness, and for being the first troops in Washing ton they received the thanks of Congress, dated July 22, 18G1. On the 19th of April, the day following the arrival of the Penn sylvania troop3 in Washington, the Massa chusetts troops were attacked in Baltimore. PATRIOTIC PENNSYLVANIA. The old Keystone did not stop sending her troops to Washington, however, after the first year ot the war, nor did she send her recruiting azents in place of troops to buy colored substitutes to fill up their quotas as some of the other States did who are now prominent in newspaper war his tory. It Is a matter of record, not generally known in onr own State, that Pennsylvania sent one out of every seven of her entire population to the war. The attention of the ''overpowered Confederacy", is also called to some remarkable figures first printed in The Pittsbueg Dispatch. 1861-Under call of President, April 15, 1861 20,975 Pennsylvania .Reserves, call of July Si 1801 15,858 Organized, act of Congress, July , josi av'oa 130,591 1862-Call of President, Jnly7, 1S63....40.3S3 jrgauizeu uuuer uraiu Au gust 4 15,100 Three-year Independent com panies 1,353 Kecrulu, 1S62..... a.ssg Pennsylvania In regular army and other States 5,000 1863 Special authority from War De partment 1,066 Call of President, June, 1863.. ...11,546 Kecrults. 1863 4.453 71,100 Enlistments in regular army.... 934 .Militia fdr 90 days, June, 1863....2S,042 1861 Ke-enlistments in old organiza tions. 3 years 17,876 Special authority, War Depart ment. 1864 9,876 Call, July 27. 1864 16,094 Call, Julys, 1864 7,675 Ilecrults forwarded, ISM .26,517 Drafted men and substitutes, 1864 10,671 Kecrults. regular army, 1864..,.. 2,974 1S6S Under call of President.

It will be seen that the drafted and substitutes were but 17, 000, and it is safe to estimate that not 10 per cent of them were substitutes. ONLY OLD MEN STAYED AT HOHE. The population of the State in 1860, by the census returns, was 2,900, 215. The school boys and girls of Pennsylvania will have no trouble in find ing out what proportion of the entire popu lation of men, women and children went to the war. There were as many boys in our army as in the Confederate, and that those who stayed at home were mostly old men is established by the figures that the vote lor President in 1860 was 476,2. There fore, in addition to the women and children left home, there were but 88,842 old men re maining to vote. Very mnch more may be said about Penn sylvania in the war. Her sons fought In every battle in the East or the West. Her dead are buried on every field. Of the en tire Union killed, one-fifth were from Penn sylvania, which fact alone attests her gal lantry mora forolbly than official reports or 15 r magazine and newspaper history. The greatesCof the leaders were from the ola Keystone State, the most famous of whom are: Meade, Hancock, McClellan and his twin lieutenants, Franklin and Fitz John Porter; Beynolds, whose blood was ab sorbed by his native soil at Gettysburg; Gregg, Meiggs, Btcketts, Crawford, Hoff man, Frank E. Patterson, McMurtrie, Geary, Thomas H. Neill, Hartranft, Hays, Meredith, Knipe, Coulter, Gregory, Sickel, (not Sickles), Madill, Pearson, McCall, Beaver, Allabaugh and many others: HABD FIGHTING. The most gallant charges of all the war were those led by Pennsylvania troops. When Meade penetrated and broke Stone wall Jackson's line on the left at Fredricks bnrg, and where the gallant Allabaugh, tha veteran of two wars, at the head of a Penn sylvania brigade made the last desperate onslaught on the Stonewall at Mayor Heights. In this, as in Meade's charge, Pittsburg troops participated, and the story that Major Montooth, C. F. 3IcKenna, Captala Jones and Colonel Allen might recite of their never to be forgotten half hour ex perience there would make interesting read ing for The Dispatch. Colonel M. 8. Quay was in that line of battle as a civilian he having previously resigned, but refused to leave pending the fight. It was on the soil of Pennsylvania that the snake Secession had its backbone broken. The battle of Gettysburg, the most sanguin ary of the war, is considered to be the turn ing of the tide, so that the final charge of Pickett, preceded and attended as it was by peculiarly dramatic circumstances, has fur nished a subject for more speeches, histor ical essays, paintings and poems than any other event which ever occurred in Amer ica; yet, in point of fact, the Pennsylva nians in the Virginia burg attempted a greater task with fewer numbers against greater odd3 and accomplished greater re sults, thongh it is never heard of. BLOOD AJD MONET SPENT. The charge of the Eighth Pennsylvania Calvary at Chancellorsville, a mere squadron led by Major Kennan, on the very bayonets of Jackson's entrenched infantry and into the jaws of death, may well bet compared to the blunder of the light brigade at Balaklava. In the matter of dollars and cents, it is impossible to tell what the war cost the State of Pennsylvania. The damage by the raids into our border counties is roughly es timated at 5,000,000. I will tell the G. A. It. readers of Th Dispatch a story of the death of C. J1. Jackson, as related to me by a Confederate who was in bis front and an eye witness to the scene also a statement of an aid-decamp on Stonewall Jackson's staff estab lishing the fact, from Confederate sources,' that Meade had succeeded in breaking the line, and the massacre at Mayer Heights .might have been avoided if the Pennsyl vania General Franklin had been as loyal to the whole army as he was to McClellan, and had he supported Meade.
