SOME of the good people of Massachusetts have
thought best to petition Secretary of the Navy-
John D. Long:
As the ostensible and only Justifiable motive for
entering upon the war with Spain was the deliver
ance of a neighboring people and ourselves from
relations to them that had become intolerable, we
wish to express our abhorrence of the spirit of ven
geance manifested in such a war cry as •■Remember
the Maine," and beg you to refuse to purchase
goods of any kind carrying this motto, and in all
ways to discourage and discountenace the use or
this motto or any other calculated to foster the
spirit of savagery against which we are contending.
How our good people view such a movement can
be Judged by the following, selected at random from
hundreds of opinions:
John Harrison Macomber, Post Chaplain, TJ. S. A.
While I believe that the Spanish are responsible"
for the destruction of the Maine I still think that the
chief object of this war is to establish the principles
of humanity and Justice rather than to revenge our
selves for that most tragic breach of national faith.
Personally I cannot say that I approve of the use of
"Remember the Maine" as a war cry or a motto, since
It tends to make the present conflict seem revengeful
rather than purely patriotic.
E. W. Marston, Oakland.
If there is anything in the world that true Ameri
cans ought to remember and be continually reminded
of it is the tragedy of the Maine. We cannot say nor
hear too much about it either on the battlefields or
here at home. Let us hear those three words In war
cries and see them on badges and buttons until this
war ends in victory for the Stars and Stripes, which
we all love and honor.
Attorney Eugene F. Bert.
My idea is that it is the Maine incident which is
the prime cause of the intense war feeling which pre
vails throughout the United States; in the minds of
the great mass of the people the Cuban matter is quite
secondary. It is right and just that Cuba should be
freed from oppression and tyranny, but to the rank
and file of our brave soldiers and marines the thought
of their brothers murdered in cold blood in a pre
sumably friendly harbor means more than anything
else. "Remember the Maine" should be our war cry,
for with those words ringing in their ears our soldiers
will fight as men only fight for those near and dear
to them, and war means fighting, and the harder our
men fight the quicker the war will be over with honor
to our country. We owe it to ourselves and the men
of the Maine not only to remember but to avenge
C. 0. Burton, Grand Secretary American Legior. of
In every war there has always been a battle cry,
and as this, for reasons the justice of which no one
can doubt, has become ours, we might as well keep it.
The men who are doing the fighting think it appro
priate and expressive and we for whom they are fight
ing ought not to try to interfere with them in this
regard. Perhaps it does sound a bit revengeful, but
we are only human, and our hearts have been mightily,

I DIE standing or I fall with honor."
It was no stern military man who
took those words for life-blazon. My
first recollections of the speaker
bring before me a picture which
Rubens would have loved to paint; a
queenly beauty in a rich, artistic
frame, a woman whose Juno-like throat
rose, white and seductive amid her dra
peries of yellow satin and black lace,
whose prematurely white hair was
worn as a crown of glory, and who
swept across her salon with welcoming
white hands and the air of the aid
French regime. For the moment I for
got the whispered tales of heroism I
had heard and only thought of my
hostess as one who would have graced
a throne. In after days, when our lives
were knit in one of the closest intima
cies that can befall two of the same
sex, I learned that beneath those grace
fully worn draperies beat not only the
heart of a tender woman but the heart
of a soldier.
Tears before-, when France was pass
ing through her great throes of an
guish, Juliette RastouPs beautiful face
had gladdened the terror-stricken, the
wounded and the dying. Through the
appalling days of the Invasion, the
siege of Paris and the Commune, she
was to be seen by the side of her hus
band, the eminent surgeon, wherever a
woman's deft touch, a woman's cheer
ing smile and a woman's keen sym
pathy could relieve suffering. A first
union— the union of a child-wife, or
dered from the convent to the altar
had taught her that wealth and luxury
do not necessarily bring heart's ease,
and now, hand in hand with a man she
adored, she labored in the oause of pa
triotism at a time when most women
seek seclusion and persona! comfort.
At length the crucial moment came
and the hour of mortal agony rang out
for Paris and for Juliette Rastoul; she
faced the perils of childbirth alone^
while the husband whom she had*
helped to save others was struggling
, V
stirred during this past quarter of a year, bo we are
excusable if .we show a little human feeling in this ,
matter. For my part I say keep the Maine's memory p
green, and don't let our soldiers or marines or our *
civilians forget it even if they would. -;i(
Attorney General W. F. Fitzgerald. ; C
I have neither the time nor the patience to discuss C
such euper-senlimentalism. That citizen is no patriot d
who does not desire to avenge the wanton destruction (.
of our gallant battleship and her brave crew. There s
is no place under the Stars and Stripes for that sol- ,
dier or sailor to whom "Remember the Maine" is not ■;
a spontaneous battle cry. S
A. W. Barrett, Adjutant General California.

and navy of Spain will make them "remember the Q

Again we hear in our streets the sounds of war, ('
the beat of drum, the tread oX martial columns, and (j
from far off seas have echoed the boom of cannon (-,
victoriously avenging national insult and criminal (i
treachery in a distant harbor. The fate of the Maine ->
has fired the hearts of our countrymen and in every V
battle where one blow is struck to free Cuba another (i
will be struck in memory of the men who were not ('
privileged to die fighting. "Remember the Maine" is Q
a war cry that will live in history and true patriots *
will echo it all over the land until victory is ours. . b
Rev. Robert Mackenzie.
It Is not my business to fight nor my place to direct q
our fighters, but most certainly if I were a soldier or q
a marine I should cry "Remember the Maine." .
. J. B. Stetson. *j
Such a petition ought to have and assuredly will ,
have no weight whatever. "Remember the Maine" .
should be shouted from one end of our land to the *
other, and none of us should ever forget the destruc- <5
tion of that gallant ship and her brave crew. (<

yet I think it would have been better for us to have (<

for his country amid the wails of the
dying Commune. To her this seemed
but a little sacrifice; France, at such a
time, was more important than the
wife and mother; but when, four days
later, news came of Dr. Rastoul's ar
rest the supremacy of the wife asserted
itself. Defying ordinary prudence, she
rose from her sickbed, wrapped her
babe to her bosom, bid her children by
the first marriage cling to her, and sal
lied forth, in the strength of her weak
ness and her love, to seek her husband
in the Jaws of death.
By what persuasive power, by what
pathetic courage she won her way past
all obstacles perhaps she alone could
have told. There is something in the
eight of a young mother pleading for
her babe's father which appeals to
ever}' mother's son, and beauty is a
precious gift when bestowed on a wise
woman. Before sunset Mme. Rastoul

Then came week after week of weary

his position was scarcely enviable, yet
he had that to cheer him which falls
to the lot of few prisoners— the sup
porting consciousness of perpetual,
brooding love. For to that dreary isl
and Juliette Rastoul had followed him
with her babe and little daughter.
Lodged in a poor fisherman's hut, par
taking of the fisherman's meager fare,
her daily life was spent in tramping
aro-und the fort, in rain, wind or sun
shine, for the sake of catching an occa
sional glimpse of the beloved face, of
letting a father's eyes rest now and
again on his little one. The baby
eventually died of undue exposure, and
the mother never forgave herself; but
by her indefatigable love she had re
newed the life of a man who had lost
hope for his country and for himself.
At length the final fiat went forth.
Dr. Rastoul was exiled to New Cale
donia. From that moment his wife
had but one object in life— to follow him
into exile. Possibly she may have
sometimes missed the wealth which in
early years she had valued so lightly,
for money would have smoothed many
difficulties. But her indomitable will
sufficed. Selling everything she poss
essed, she realized enough for her many
expenses, and stood one day with her
children in Havre harbor the only free
woman on board a ship of female con
victs, bound for New Caledonia. But
at the last moment an unlooked-for
Impediment arose. The relatives of
her first husband asserted legal guar
dianship of the children, as Portu
guese subjects, and refused to sanction
their removal from France.
Leave her children behind? Juliette
Rastoul would* not entertain the pro
posal fr.-r a second. Stay away from
her banished husband? The mere sug
gestion was monstrous! For three
days this extraordinary woman con
trived to delay a Government ship
while her lawyers wore out the tele
graph wires fighting for her right of
motherhood; and the female prisoners
prayed and wept in sympathy. "I
don't know what the secret of the
wonderful power was," said her son
once, referring to that vividly remem
bered time, "but I honestly believe
there wasn't a woman on board who
wouldn't have given her life for my
mother's happiness."
Love prevailed once more, and after
six months of lonely exile Dr. Rastoul
welcomed a comrade wife such as few
men can boast of and two children who
were dear to him as his own.
His political offenses had been very
trivial and he was allowed the inde
pendence of a medical man, practicing
his profession. Their modest little
house in Noumea became an active cen
ter of kindly benevolence and an ideal
life seemed dawning for the banished
pair. Do you know Noumea, with its
sensuous, tropical atmosphere, its low,
white-washed homes, set about with
aromatic blossoms, its picturesque na
tives, violet-blue lagoon and back
ground of many tinted hills? At a
first glance it seems the spot par ex
cellence for a lover's retreat. But, alas,
it has a background other than that
of the peaceful, purple-pink hills; its
calm life has a hideous undercurrent
made evident by processions of misera
ble men in clanking chain and fetter,
and happy thoughts are dashed by the
remembrance of scenes dally enacted
behind stone walls. Dr. Rastoul and
his wife were not people to enjoy life
recklessly while their countrymen lan
guished in captivity, and soon It be
came notorious that unwonted small
comforts were finding their way to
weary, half-starved prisoners; myster
ious pipes were smoked surreptitiously,
mysterious delicacies revived appetites
upon which a diet of rice palled; books
or papers suddenly cheered eyes whose
intellectual light seemed to have set.
Worst of all. letters that had not seen
prison supervision were said to have
reached their destination. Officials be
gan to say, hesitatingly, that they
must make a stand for authority; of
ficials' wives, not beautiful, themselves,
protested earnestly that a woman's
good looks were no evidence in her
favor. At length, one morning, the
storm broke and with much display of
uniform and flourish of revolver. Dr.
Rastoul wets arrested in his own house.
"What have I done?" he queried, In
"Well, ah hum, not exactly anything;
fact is, we're afraid of that wife of
yours; she's plotting some mischief— so
Just you march off."
"They think they will starve us, I
suppose," quoth Juliette Rastoul, con
