; It was. a' perfect day for the occa
sion... The soil ; was, prodigal with its
offerings of. flowers; /In all the ceme-.
teries the \ 'mounds \u25a0 that marked .the
resting places of the departed seemed
to be covered 'by deeper banks of ever
greens and flowers than on any of the.
years previousl .. . .» v~-~— — _..^». .•
Many of .the visitors to the ceme
teries had weary blocks to tramp ber
cause. of the lack of car service. Many
of the tired veterans had marches as
long as. they had to make .in '61 0r. '63
to reach the muster points;^ but' none
of the dead were forgotten. - The vet
erans suffered with every one else, but
the disaster only seems, to have re
vived in them the old grit that held
them up in : the days when they fol
lowed ..Grant and Sherman. They
walked with a firmer. tread and their
eyes were brighter than in years'.
Though there \ are ? many \u0084 Grand
Army men in the city, the rbllcalls
showed/ yesterday that not one of
theiii. had been lost in the recent dis
aster; ' ' Many of -the posts, however,

= The . school children," who have al
ways been -the stanch allies of the
Grand Army men in decorating the
graves <>f . the veterans, were out in
tiill force yesterday. They brought
the -flowers and they helped the Grand
Army men with the same enthusiasm.
A pretty, innovation in the celebration
of the. day: was introduced yesterday
when crowds of school children deco

. '-. Durins City's Day of Trouble.' •
Of, the- thousands of Memorial
day. addresses delivered yesterday
throughout" the United States there
was not one, it is. quite safe to assert,
that gripped" and, held the hearts of
its hearers more firmly,- withal more
tenderly, than the speech delivered by
Attorney Samuel 3fc Shortridge to the
multitude that assembled to honor the
dead in the Presidio National Ceme
tery- ' . ;
Kor was - Mr.t Shortridge's splendid
*ift of oratory entirely responsible for
the effect of his words. He faced an
audience in .whose minds the sense of
a recent great misfortune underlay all
other thought." and without trenching
upon the irrelevant he touched that
sense. It is no easy matter for the
most ingenious to adhere to
pertinence* and avoid platitude 5 in the
framing of a Decoration day c oration,
for even the Fourth, of July ts hardly
less- productive of - opportunity : for
originality jeither of idea or phrasing,
and charm of delivery is usually, de
pended upon to obscure lack of con
ception. \u25a0 '."*. £• '. '?:.
But no such difficulty confronted
Mr. £horjridge. His -conventional
theme was that of gratitude for bene
factions bestowed by the nation's sol
diers and sailors, and he 'did not have
to depart from . that' subject to " pay
tribute to the splendid service render
ed to San Francisco- by .the military
and naval forces when she was yin
need of their; disciplined j aid to \u25a0 sava
her from utter, annihilation.- \u25a0\u25a0 ;
The respectful attention given • his
introductory "remarks and" his expect
ed reference to what -the; nation's de
fenders did for ; the" nation's flag
merged Into keenest- interest-when; he
gracefully - and • tenderly °- alluded - -to
their service -in behalf of their strick
en countrymen -and vromen. ' Ere. his
panegyric- reached- conclusion -there
.were mafty moistened eyes in his au
dience, and when he Stepped' from the
platform • there ; was; a rash *of soldiers
and civilians to grasp his hand.^These
were the . sentiments that provoked
