IN FOND MEMORY Impressive ana Elaborate Ceremon ials for the Deal PROCESSION AND SERVICES Decoration Day Generally Obser vedBusiness Suspended Par ade Oration By J. A. Cruzan. A HOLIDAY. The Heavens were weeping through out the greater part of the Memorial uay exercises yesterday, mere was a great gathering of people of all nationalities at the cemetery. The graves, and especially those of the sleeping war veterans, were profusely decorated with flowers and vines. The day was practically a holiday. The Government offices suspended business early in the forenoon while the business portion of the city was deserted after the noon hour. Only the Government schools were in ses sion. The procession was late in reaching the cemetery. Many carriages and hundreds of pedestrians preceded it. Immediately upon the arrival of the column at the cemeterjr, the services wrere begun on the G. A. R. plot. After an appropriate selection by the Government band. Post Commander L. L. La Pierre read the ritual. This was followed by prayer by Chaplain Greene. Comrade Williams decorated the graves of the dead. O. C. Swain, of the Sons of Veterans, read Lincoln's Gettyberg address. Comrade J. A. Cruzan followed with an oration. The roll call of the dead was made by Adjutant Copeland. Then were fired three volleys over the graves of the veterans by the Benning ton bluejackets. The great throng of people then took up the strains of America, accompanied bytheband.at the conclusion of which, Rev. Douglas Putnam Birnie pro nounced the benediction. THE ORATION. Following is the excellent address by Rev. J. A. Cruzan, orator of the day: It is thirtjr-seven years since the first gun fired at Sumpter called a na tion to arms. A new generation, worthy in every way to succeed that one, has drawn its sword in one of the most righteous wars that the world has ever seen, and it is now making his tory. Some of our comrades who wore the blue in that older struggle are help ing in the new. Dewey. Sampson and Schley of the navy, and Miles, Mer- ritt, Shafter and scores of others, who are now in this army, which is now making history, shared the fortunes of that elder army. Today we pause to remember. We call to mind another righteous war. We remember another army which carried the old flag at Donaldson, Shi loh, Pittsburg, Chickamauga, Atlanta, Antietam, Cold Harbor, Fredericks burg, Chancellorville, Gettysburg and in the Wilderness. We remember an other navy that fought at Forts Henry, and Donaldson, Hampton Roads, New Orleans, Fort Fisher and Mobile Bay. We recall such names as Lyons, Baker. Reynolds, Hancock, Schofield, Rose- crans. Hooker, Meade, Howard, Thom as, Sheridan, Sherman and Grant. We remember Admirals Foote, Dahlgren. Porter and Farragut. We remember Wilson, Sumner, Ben Wade, Chase. Stanton and Abraham Lincoln. These men, and the boys in blue they led. also made history of which Americans shall ever be proud. I want to open a page or two of this older history and see what we find written thereon. It was given to these history makers, whom we honor to day, to uphold our flag and save our nation from dismemberment. More than a century ago into this bit of bunting our forefathers stitched and stained our democracy. It became morethan a bit of bunting, it was a symbol of a free country, nationality. Fired on at Sumpter. hauled down through one-half of America, the loyal North sprang to arms in its defense. Whv? Because that flag meant Amer ica. The ringing words of General John A. Dix, "If any man attempts to haul down the American flag shoot him on the spot." found response in every American heart. That flag stood for nationality, liber ty, equality. With one and a half mil lion loyal bayonets back of it, what a power there was in that bit of bunt ing. How like a thing of life the old ran. 'mid fire and smoke and terri- carnage to the ton o command ble everywhere, and how the insurgent colors sank before it. And it is still a power as England in Venezuela dis covered, as Spain is learning in Cuba 2nd the Philippines today. Why this .ewer in this bit of bunting? Be muse these our comrades stained Us stripes a deeper red with loyal blood. It was also given to these history makers of more than one-third of a century gone to demonstrate that a free government, of the people, for the people and by the people, is a pos sibility. Again and again had the experiment of democracy been tried, but it had al ways failed most disastrously. The .lews tried it in Palestine. Greece, Rome and France failed signally. With these failures in mind, Webster thirty years before. Sumpter said: "If we also fail, popular government will for ever be an impossibility." And so thought the world. When, in '61, the lurid fires of civil war lighted our Wes tern horizon, Carlyle, the English cy- REV. J. A. CRUZAN. (Photo by Williams). nic, said: "A foul chimney is burn ing uselt out over there. He voiced the glad thought of depotism every where and the town-trodden and op pressed throughout all the world hid their faces in despair. But in that critical hour two mil- lion brave soldiers stretched forth their hands to stay the tottering ark of liberty. One-half a million willingly went to their death. America and the world owes it to these men that free government is no longer an experi ment but an omnipotent fact, a fact as dear to the South as the North, for President McKinley, the worthy suc cessor of Washington, Adams, Jeffer son, Lincoln, finds no more loyal sup port north of the Mason-Dixon line than that which comes to him from the South. . Think for a moment what- would have been the result had these com rades failed in this part of their work. Instead of a grand, strong nationali ty, two weak, rival, jealous republics, would be side by side, suspiciously watching each other. What nation would then have dared to say to Spain: "Starvation and butchery in Cuba must cease." It was the mission of these men also to strike down slavery and to make free speech the right of every Ameri can from one end of the land to the other. Americans born since 1S01 do not realize the priceless boon, the free dom of speech, which we now possess, nor at what cost it was purchasd. It would do some Americans good to vis it some other land and breathe for a time a different atmosphere. It is told that a bright American girl, a graduate of Wellesley, formed one of an excur sion party on an American steamer in the Mediterranean. They spent sev eral weeks in Constantinople. In her shopping tours she made the acquain tance of an intelligent Turkish mer chant. One day after having complet ed her purchases, this American girl said to Ali: "Why do not the Turks of your class say to the government that these horrible Armenian atroci ties must cease?" Ali sprang from his cross legged po sition on his mat and bowing low, said ! in bated breath: "We do not speak." j "But you ought to speak. In Ameri- '; ca if the men did not put an end to such atrocities, we women would rise and overthrow such a government in a single day." "Madam." said Ali, "We dare not speak." Passing through the streets she met an artist acquaintance who was making his temporary home, in Con stantinople. She repeated the incident ! to him. The artist looked furtively j j to-lhe right and then to the left, and j ! then whispered: "Ali is right. We dare not speak." "Why do you dare not speak? Amer iea would protect you?" "Yes,, perhaps, but men who dare to speak, disappear mysteriously. What then, could my government do? Ali is right. We dare not speak." That evening, as the sun was set ting, this young American girl, relat ed these conversations to the other members of the excursion party. Then springing from her chair she took off her yatching cap and waving it shout ed: "Three cheers for grand Old Glory and a country wiiere men and women dare to speak." Yes, but forty years ago in one-half of America we too, dared not speak. Listen to Whittier: When first I saw our banner wave Above the Nation's Council hall, I heard beneath its marble wall, The clanking fetters of the slave! In the foul market place I stood And saw the Christian mother sold And childhood with its locks of gold Blue-eyed and fair with Saxon blood. I shut my eyes and held my breath; And smothering down the wrath and shame That set my northern blood aflame, Stood silent, where to speak was death. On the oppressor's side was power: And yet I knew that every wrong, However old, however strong, But waited God's avenging hour! I knew that Truth would crush the lie: Somehow, sometime .the 'end would be; Yet scarcely dared I hope to see The triumph with my mortal eye. But now I see it! In the sun A free flag floats from yonder dome, And at the Nation's hearth and home The Justice, long-delayed, is done. Yes, thank God, we live at last under a free flag. Wherever the Stars and Stripes float there is freedom both for the bodies and brains of men. No longer, North or South, do they shackle the hands or tongues of Americans. We owe this boon of a nation, free in fact as well as in name to the brave men of 1861. We living comrades, survivors of a passing generation, join in honoring the patriots who are today making a new page in history. We too, love our Dewey, Sampson, Miles, also Foote, Farragut, Grant and Lincoln. All honor to our living heroes who are making history. Honor also for our dead comrades who made history. That is a grand army gathered at Chickamauga, now facing Cuba and the grand work cut out for it there. That is also a grand army in charge of Com rade Merritt now on the ocean speed ing its way to Manila by the way of Honolulu. But also were those armies grand, one under Grant which fought its way through the Wilderness by way of Petersburg to Appomatox, and that other under Sherman, which marched from Atlanta to the sea. And when their grand work was done these two armies, you remember, held a review in Washington. Of them, some one wrote: Did you see them yesterday Marching down the broad highways. Did you hear the distant drum And the people's shout. "They Come!" If with me you then had stood. Seen that city's multitude.' On their front, their rear, their flanks, Pressing in their very ranks Gods! Methinks ye would have spared Half a lifetime to have shared All the swelling thoughts that then Met those swarthy battle men. THE PROCESSION. The members of the regular and vol unteer companies arrived at the Drill Shed in good time, formed quickly and marched away promptly. From the Drill Shed the soldiers marched to the boat landing where they met a com pany of bluejackets from the U. S. S. Bennington in command of Lieutenant Eaton. The sailor boys were ready on time and Grand Marshal De La Vergne was there to assign them to their place in the procession. It did not take long to do this customary courte sy and in about five minutes the sol diers and sailors were on their way to Harmony Hall on King street where the members of Geo. W. De Long Post, G. A. R. and the Army and Navy Uni on from the Bennington were wait ing. The soldiers and sailors marched to Alakea street, where they faced about in line. The members of the G. A. R. were soon in their wagonettes and, followed by the members of the Army and Navy Union, joined the first part of the procession and marched up Ala kea street. The procession then con tinued up Emma and turned over on Vineyard to Fort. From Fort the line of march was across School to Nuuanu and up to the cemetery. The procession was not as large as it was last year but the appearance was fine. There was an absence of the police as well as officials of the Gov ernment. There were in all six companies of volunteers and two of regulars in the procession, i heir excellent marching wras commented upon frequently by people along the way. Col. Fisher was in command of the Regiment'. There were three wagonettes used by the members of the G. A. R. In the first, Avith Post Commander Greene and other veterans, rode Lieut. Win terhalipr and Assistant Paymaster I)u Bois of the Bennington. Each of the G. A. R. men carried a small bouquet of flowers with which to decorate the graves of their dead comrades. The detachment of members of the Army and Navy Union was twenty three strong and in command of Chief Master-at-arms McKay. Of these, 20 were from the Bennington and three from the city. The latter brought up the rear. The band, in command of Captain Berger and the drum corps, were never in finer shape. Everything went off in good shape from the start at the Drill Shed to the end of the march at Nuuanu Ceme tery and for this a great deal of credit must be given to Col. De La Vergne, the Marshal of the day. Upon returning from the cemetery the soldiers escorted the Bennington company back to the boat landing and then returned to the Drill Shed. Gamblers Fined In the Police Court yesterday the gang of Chinese gamblers captured at the old Chinese theatre last week, plead guilty to the charge of gambling. The two men who had charge of the table were fined $10 and costs while the remaining1 15, the players, were fined $3 and costs. A GENERAL INVITATION. The millinery displayed at L. B.
