soldiers of the blue ami the f^ray, but
the passions' of war, the jealousies of sec- 8

long and angry controversies of politi
van uognia, oi material Merest, aim 01
local pride and tradition, caraotothoir
derisive struggle. As the fate of Christ- c
eudom was determined at Town*, that t
u( American Independence nt Saratoga, v
and that of modern Europe at Waterloo, s
the destiny of the American Union was ,
decided at Gettysburg. A hundred v
<?thcr famous fields there are of the wune c
American bravery in the samo tremen- ;
<lous strife; fields whose proud and ter- j.
rible talc historv ami song will uevcr t
tire of telling. But it is here that the j
struggle touched its highest point. Here t
broke the fiery crest of that invading i
wave of war. " From this field the civil
contest, through renowned campaigns of
coorsgeous endurance, of fearful courap\
uudof accumulating heart-break for (
Northern ami Southern homes, slowly
receded toward it# end."
Here Mr. Curtis sketched the history
of events that lead to the war, and the
story of the war up to this decisive battle,
and proceeded,
THE SUPREME MOMENT.
"The t?un of Gettysburg rose on the
first of July and saw the army of the
gray already advancing in line of battle;
, the army of tli? blue still hastening
?*gerly forward and converging to this
jKimt. The glory of midsummer tilled
this landscape as' if nature hint arrayed
a tilting scene for a transcendent event.
Om e more the inexpressible emotion
mingled of yearning memory, of fond
affection, of'dread foreboding, of high
lope, of patriotic enthusiasm, and o
tern resolve, swept for a moment ove
bousands of brave heart*, and the nex
nstant the overwhelming storm of bat
le burst. For three long, proud, im
aortal dayB it raged and swayed, drift
ng from Seminary Hill far round t<
I'nlfs IliU and Culps Hill, then sweep
jg back, with desperate fury strik
ig the Peach Orchard aud dash
?g with Hash ami roar upon LittU
tound Top and Round Top. raging ii
evil's Den, the earth trembling, the ail
uivcring, the sky obscured; with
liouting charge, and rattling volley, ami
:iundenng cannonade piling theground
rith mangled and bleeding blue ami
niy, the old, the young, but always and
very where the devoted and the brave
t wjis the supreme-moment of the peril
f the Union. It wjis the heroic crisif
f the war. JJut the fiery force waf
l?ent. In one last, wild, tumultuouf
truggle brave men dashed headlong
jainst men as brave, and the next molent
that awful bolt of daring courage
as melted in the fervent heat of an
[jual valor, and the battle of Getty*
urg was fought.
"If the rising sun of the 4th of July.
303, looked upon a sad and unwonted
*ene, a desolated battle Held, upon
Inch the combatants on either side had
een American citizens, yet those comatants
could they have seeu aright
ould have hailed that day as more
lorious than ever before. For as the
iiililn.ii of Tunu.l li?*li(?l?l Moses de*
rending amid tin? clouds and thundei
f tin; sacred mount bearing the divinely
luminated law, so from that smoking
nd blood-drenched iield on which all
ope of future Union might seem to
avo perished utterly, they would have
en a more perfect Union rising, with
10 Constitution at last immutably in?
irnreted, and they would have heard,
efore they were uttered by human
pH, the words of which Gettysburg ia
le immortal pledge to mankind, the govinmentof
the people, by the people,
ir the people, shall not perish from the
irtb."
A REUNITED C0UNTUY.
Mr. Curtis reviewed eloquently and at
eat length the results of the war,
welling upon the couditiou of the New
with, and contrasting it with her conition
before the war. He argued for a
ire ballot, plead for a complete wiping
itof all sectional feeling, and eongratuted
the country upon the auspicious
gns of the times?that soon the reunion
the blue and the gray would bo as
mnlete in the country at large as to
iv on the Held of Gettysburg, lie conud?d
ns follows:
"Fellow citizens, so fur as lies in us,
mil not such be the spirit of our politiil
contentions? Can we wrest from the
igel of this hour any blessing so priceks
uh the common resolution that we
uill not have come to this consecratcd
?ot only to declare our joy ami gratiide,
not onlv to cherish proud and
nder memories, but also to pledge ourlves
to Union in its subliinest signi ance?
Here at last is its sacred secret
vealed. It lies in the patriotic instinct
hieli has brought to this field the
my of Northern Virginia and the
my of the Potomac. It lies in the
lanly emotion in which the generous
ildiersees only the sincerity and the
Mirage of bis ancient foe, and scorns
ispicion of a lingering enmity. It lies
i the perfect freedom of speech and
urfcet fraternity of spirit which now
ir three days "have glowed in these
L'iirts and echoed in this enchanted air.
hose are the forces that assure the fu<1/
our beloved conntrv. May they
> before us on our mighty march, ft p?Tr
of cloud by day, of lire by night,
anpy for us, luippv for mankind, if wo
hi our children shall comprecud
that they are tho fundaeutul
conditions of the life of
le republic. Then, long hereafter,
hen in a country whose vnst populaon
covering the continent with a glory
I civilization which the imagination
mnot forecast, the completed eenturv
f the great battle shall be celebrated,
ie generation which shall gather here
i onr places will rise up nud call us
leased. Then, indeed, the fleeting
igel of this hour will have yielded his
lost precious benediction; and in the
Id of Gettysburg, as we now behold
, the blue and the gray blending in
iippy harmony, like the mingling hues
the summer landscape, we may see
ic radiant symbol of the triumphant
merica of oiir pride, our hope and our
iv."
U'o-jiight a banquet was served at the
prings Hotel. No exercises are achedled
for to-morrow and the day will
robabl v be quiet, as far as the Armies
f the Potomac are concerned.
At a business meeting of the Departlent
held in the cemetery, it was defied
to hold the next summer Encamplent

On motion of Mr. Mills! of Texas, i
was ordered that when tho House ad

Mr. Bayno, of Pennsylvania, opposed

equivalent to $8 a ton, which, he thought
was not sufficiently high when comparei
with tho other articles on tho iron aiu

The motion was agreed to.
Mr. McKinley moved to restoro tin
rates on bar iron and his motion was ad
vocuted by Mr. Burrows, of Michican.
Mr. Bavnc, of Pennsylvania, in sup

to the appalling sum of $129,272,000.
Since the 23d of April, the Secretary had
purchased $20,000,000 bonds, for which

Congress, and yet with this condition

Pittsburgh, Pa., July 3.?The iron
lockout presented no new feature today.
No more signatures were obtained
by the Amalgamated people to their
wale up to noon and there were no indications
of either side giving in. The
| manufacturers say that before they decided
to resist the workmen's scale they
calculated that certain firms would sign
the scale and they look for at least two
more mills to resume before the end of
the week. The signing of the scale by
these few firms they claim, however,
will have no effect on the general situation,^
there are seventy-one firms in
the Western Association, who are determined
to resist tho scale.
Moorehead, McCleano & Co., paid off
their men to-day and
closed down indefinitely,
In snuakincof the lockout to-dav Max
Moorehead said: There are aomo firms
that cannot afford to remain idle. We
can, and unless the men give in we shall
not start before November. In the
present condition of the market it is
doubtful whether we should resume
before September under any circumstances.
The workmen appear to be well satislied
with the result so far and confidently
assort that the lockout will not last
very long. The thirteen firms that have
signed the scale operate sixteen mills
and employ about 12,000 men. A
You uptown, Ohio, dispatch says there
is no change in the situation there. All
outgoing trains are crowded with iron*
workers and their families, going to visit
friends. The manufacturers show no
disposition to sign the scale.
At 'J o'clock this afternoon word was
received at Amalgamated headquarters
that Scottdale Iron and Steel Company
of Scottdale, Pa., had signed tlje scale
and would continue their plants in full
operation.
The lockout has not had much effect
upon the coktf trade. Hhipments this
week are not as large as they were hist,
but it is not duo to any great extent to
the mills closing. When the furnaces
began to bank, unable to find sale for
pig iron, then tho coke trade will be
effected.

New Yoiik, July 8.?A telegram from
Baltimore hist night stated that President
Spencer, of the Baltimore <k Ohio
road, had come to New York on railroad
business and woutd wait the arrival here
of Robert Garrett, whose father-in-law,
Mr. Prick, had gone to Europe to bring
him home, as his mental condition had
become much worse.
President Spencer, when interviewed
on the subject, said that he did not expect
to meet Mr, Garrett and, so far as
he knew, that gentleman was not expected
home at an early date. Mr.
Spencer also said he was positively assured
that Mr. Garrett's health was very
much improved.
\V. L. Montague, of Baltimore, an intimate
fficpd of the Garrett family, assured
a reporter that instead of Mr. Garrett
having suffered a relapse, he had
antlvnlw ?um?nwwl Tin Httlcl that. Hftl
Latrobe, of Baltimore. who left Mr.
Garrett in London ten (lays ago, had as8ureil
him that he was then perfectly
well and as healthy as any man in London.
Mr. Montague also saw a letter
received from Mr. Garrett last Sunday,
which fully corroborated the favorable
report of Col. Latrobe and other gentlemen
who have recently Been hjtn, Mr.
Frick went to I^ondon to join his sonin-law,
but not to bring him home.
Another friend of Mr. Garrett said
that after the latter had receive<Lnews
of his brother's death he cabled that he
would come as soon as poosible. It had
previous to this been his intention to do
some shooting in Ireland and Scotland
and return in time for tho pheasant
shooting on his Maryland preserve in
the fall, but from his cable dispatch it
was inferred that ho had given up the
shooting and would be homo in a few
weeks at the farthest,

Cincinnati, 0., July 4.?Tlie con ten
r nial anniversary of the settlement o!
Ohio and her sister States of the terri
tory northwest of the Ohio river wen
, inaugurated here at midnight last night
* by the firing of a salute of 11)0 guns,
from three different points on the hill
' tops and on the public lauding.
All the church bells in the city were
set ringing, and every steaui whistle
within a radius of five miles added to
the jubulant ushering in of Centennial
Day and the national festival.
Although there has been a good deal
of opposition to the commencement of
the festival exercises at midnight, the
impatience and enthusiasm of the people
apparently knew no bounds, and it
is safe to say that for the next fortyeight
hours pillows will afford but scant
repose to the exultant populace of this
city.
The Centennial Exposition will open
at 9 o'clock this morning, and the city it)
now crowded with thousands of visitors
frotn neighboring States who will join
in the proceedings destined to mark this
historical event. In the afternoon the
grand pi occasion will pass through the
streets under charge of Chief Marshal
Armor Smith, jr., Mayor of the city.
The uproar on the streets at midnight
of horns, cow-bells, lire crackers, Ac.,
never had a parallel in this city. At
Fourth and Vino streets, the Hash
of the guns of four batteries of artillery,
tiring salutes, not 1,000 yards away, can
be seen, but the report is drowned by I
the street noise. All the streets are
crowded. Governors Foraker, of Ohio,
Beaver of Pennsylvania, and Thayer, of j
Nebraska, are here. Five other Governors
will be here to-day. A railroad
passenger agent says that the roads
brought fifty thousaud people to the
city Tuesday, and expect to bring us

TO SAVE HltUUKS' LIFE.
The Murderer's Mother anil Sletef Come
From Kiigliiiul to Help Iflm.
St. Louis, July H.?-Mrs. S. N. Biooks
and Miss Brooks, the mother and sister
of Hugh M. Brooks, the condemned
murderer of Preller, arrived here from
from England. The meeting between
the mother and prisoner was a mosti
pathetic one. The women nearly fainted
and Brooks trembled like an aspen.
After recovering from the first shock
they had an interview of three hours'
duration. The strong iron screen of the
jail separated them, and although the
mother begged for an opportunity to
embrace her son it was denied her. Tin*
guard, how even, opened a small window
in the screen and here the prisoner
kissed his mother and sister.
The women believe him innocent, and
the victim of popular prejudice. Mrs.
Brooks said every effort had been made
to induce the Knglish Government t?
interfere, but all had failed. They will
see tho Governor 011 tho flth of July,
when the plea for commutation of sentence
will be made. It is said that the

theu.the case forjthe plaintiir was closed, y
Attorney General Webster opened for '
the defense. He animadverted upon y
the non-appearance of Mr. O'Donnell ?
and prominent members of the League
in the witness box, and declared that the t'

and not to Mr. O'Donnell personally. i
Mr. Webster began his speech bv (
taunting Mr. ltuegg, plaintiff's counsel, h
with failing to prove his case. He in- 1U
tended to prove tho Timet. case. Mr.
O'Donnell, hs said, was formerly the

Mr. Welatersaid that seven persons fy
were murdered between January, 1880,
and March, 1882, who had been guilty ?i
ol no crime excent ol offending tbe
League. When these murders were v?
mentioned in Parliament the Irish mem- a
bers neither made un explanation or re- at
pudiated them. He ftouhl prove that D
remittances were made to the League tli
from America by men of the worst possi- ci
ble character. He asked where the at
books of the League were, und expressed st
the belief that they had been removed til
to Paris. If the acts of the League hud in
been lawful, he said, the books would hi
lmve been produced. The Attorney
General then read extracts from speeches' ec
made by members of tho League, which in
advocated boycotting and violence. It
Sometimes, said Mr. Webster, murder
followed these speeches, lie said that
American money supported (he Leaguers
and that Mr. Parnell had especially
