Chief Executive Reviews Pa
rade of Old Soldiers Along
Riverside Drive.
New York, May 31. Marching In re
view before President Taft 20,000 vet
erans, sailors and members of patriotic
and fraternal organizations, the largest
Memorial day parade ever seen In this
city, paid tribute to the martial dead
The parade of the veterans of the
Grand Army of the Republic made
a picture that will not be forgotten
by those who saw It. They numbered a
few more than 1,200 In all, the small
est number ever In annual parade.
Some of them were so feeble thit they
had to be assisted In what they prob
ably realized was their last march.
Sometimes it was a stalwart son
who helped a tottering father and
again It was two old comrades who
stood even closer than shoulder to
shoulder as they almost carried the
third in front of the president. In one
case a daughter guided a blind soldier
along the route.
There were uniforms of many kinds
but the one that attracted the most at
tention was the old Zouave outfit.
President Taft arrived In the city be
fore 8 o'clock, coming from Washing
ton in the special car Plymouth, over
the Central Railroad of New Jersey to
Communipaw. This Is the first time in
20 years that a president has arrived
in Communipaw from Washington.
The president crossed the ferry to
Twenty-third street and wedt to the
home of his brother, Henry W, Taft,
where he had breakfast. From there,
accompanied by General George. B.
Loud and escorted by a troop of
Squadron A, he went to the Sherman
Square hotel, where an Informal re
ception was held in the parlor.
The Old Guard, with, their big bear
skin hats and old-fashioned muskets,
acted as guard of honor to the presi
dent, and the crowd that lined both
sides of Riverside Drive had sympathy
for the men as they trudged along un
der the burden of their headdress.
The party went to the reviewing
stand at Eighty-ninth street and River
side Drive, near the Soldiers and Sail
ors' monument.
The distinguished party invited to
surround Mr. Taft on the reviewing
stand comprised Major General Daniel
Sickles and Major General Julius H.
Stabl, Brigadier Generals Anson G.
McCook, Horace Porter, Nicholas W.
Day, Walter Howe, John T. Lockman

of Nelson, her ocean Lord, and while
these heroes in whose memory these
shafts have been eeected sleep the
sleep that knows no awakening, yet it
is proof conclusive that people are not
ungrateful. So today this goodly com
munity proves to all the world that our
soldiers are not forgotten.
"I have not desired or sought for
public office, yet if I could by election
to a. legislative office make this day by
law as sacred as the Sabbath. I would
gladly spend of my means and time
sufficient to accomplish that end.
"I recognize the fact that I am
speaking in what is usually termed a
"Quaker neighborhood," in the pres
ence doubtless of some of that faith,
and of different representatives of the
great college located here. I was born
and raised a Quaker and have never
lived outside the precincts of a church
o that denomination, yet I feel safe in
saying In this address that here, as
where I live, there are none who now
believe in "universal peace," for his
tory has demonstrated that In every
Instance has war brought forth the
greatest results to all the people. The
rebellion taught men that there are
thoughts worth dying for; that men
can be, and were found who would vol
unteer for a pittance to save a nation
and free the slave.
"By war we became a republic; by
war we preserved the republic, and by
war our flag was kept spotless; and by
war we have kept our independence
and bywar will our rights be main
tained. The motto of every loyal Am
erican citizen should be, "Peace if pos
sible, but only peace with honor.
"The war of the rebellion was fought
between two sections of our own peo
ple. ; In many instances brother
against brother, and in the world's
history nowhere can be found a report
of such decided valor. I take it that
each side fought for what they thought
to be right. I have no harsh words
for any confederate who fought for
what he believed to be right. If there
is a confederate soldier here today he
will find the heartiest handclasp from
a true Union soldier, yet I deplore the
fact that in some instances it is said
that the war of the rebellion was a
failure. This country, as said by Lin
coln, could never become a "hydra
headed monster made up of warring
states" but was always destined to be
come a nation sovereign great and
"In the recent war with Spain it was
demonstrated that the people of the
south equally with" those of the' north
were anxious to fight under the Stars
and Stripes, and let us hope that this
real Union will be perpetual and that
our flag will never be lowered, but
float victorious as she always has done

and justice.
"Many historic crimes have received
the sanction of judicial decision. It
is said that it was a judicial decision
that sent the Incarnate to his death
laden with bis cross; that it was a ju
dicial decision that .; condemned So
crates to drink the deadly hemlock;
that it was a judicial opinion rendered
by Chief Justice Taney that declared
"the black man had no rights which
the white man was bound to, respect;"
thatit was a judicial decision with
Lord Chief Justice Jeffries on the
bench that darkened the pages of Eng
lish history with the blood of Innocent
men, women and children; yet over ev
ery unjust act in' human history a
cloud of wrath has formed; and as
slavery was abolished, so has ever aris
en men to fight for and to die for prin
ciples. " 'My .Lord Cardinal,' Ann of Aus
tria once, said to Richilieu, God does
not pay at the end of every week, but
he pays. Every page of divine and hu
man history verifies her words. What
student of history can deny it? Pilate
condemned the Saviour of mankind to
crucifixion, but an early death awaited
him. Nero caroused while Rome burn
ed, but on the same day he became
a suicide. Napoleon drove from his
bed and breast the hapless Josephine
and forced his way to empire by brok
en oaths and through seas of blood,
yet just ahead of him was Waterloo
and St. Helena. Robespierre guillo
tined his thousannds but from neces
sity his own head must rest on the
same block.
"To Union soldiers here for the or
ganization I represent I wish to give
you this parting word. The bugle call
which sounded you to arms is stilled.
Among the mountains where you
fought are not even the echoes of your
musketry and only by your comrades
graves are many of your battle fields
known. You are all likened to the
'sere and yellow leaf.' On your dear
faces we must of necessity note the in
roads of time. All of your great cap
tains have at last surrendered. Old
Pop Thomas, the rock of Chicamau
ga; Grant, the real peerless leader;
Sherman, Sheridan, Logan and Morton
are all gone on before you. Soon Ah,
too soon, you must make your first
surrender to the common conqueror of
us all.
"Your sons have sworn that when
you are gone, your camp fires shall not
smoulder; "that to us and our children
you shall always be our heroes, and
your examples of patriotism, fidelity
to duty and unswerving loyalty shall
be our guide and our inspiration."

The Youthful Amateurs Were Sure Ke

They were youthful enthusiasts lr
physiognomy. Ou the seat opposite in
the train was a mau of commanding
figure, massire brow and serious ex
pression. Splend!d facer one of them
explained. "What do you suppose his
life work has been?"
"A lawyer?" suggested the other.
"Xo-o; there's too much benevolence
In that face for a lawyer."
"Maybe a banker?"
Oh. no! A man with an expression
like that couldn't bare spent bis life In
merely turning over money."
"He might be an editor,",
: "An editor: Cutting and slashing his
enemies at every turn and even , his
friends occasionally for the sake of a
smart paragraph? JTou can't.-read

engaged in some sort of public spirit

doesn't indicate strength of purpose
and nobility: Look at that curve there

At the next station an old country
man took his seat beside the man with
massive brow and soon eutered into a
conversation with him. in the course of
which be asked the latter "what was

The two opposite held their breath
in the intensity of their interest.

Picture Forgeries.
.There are three or four times as
many Corots in existence as the French
painter produced in his lifetime. He
lived to be nearly eighty, but at Mont
martre his post burnous canvases are
still being turned out to meet the de
mauds of the market. The old mas
ters never die. They are still working
overtime in the back rooms of Flor
ence and Rome. At Cologne the man
ufacture of genuine mediaeval metal
work and antique carving Is a thriving
Industry. These foreign forgers may
be scamps, but their tireless energy
also testifies to the reverence in which
posterity holds the great names of by
gone periods. If they are not so high
ly prized, what inducements would
there be for anybody to waste time,
paint and muscle in creating fraudu
lent copies and imitations and pass
ing them off under false pretenses?
Our millionaire collectors are not con
stantly exposed to the risk of buying
high priced forgeries where the origi

Mourning In Japan.
The Japauese code of mourning is
very elaborate and complicated. As
followed by the well to do classes it
Involves the weariug of special , gar
ments and abstinence from ' animal
food. At the death of a husband or
real or adopted parents the custom de
mands thirteen months of mourning
apparel and fifty, days' abstinence
from meat. . Grandparents are honored
by 130 days if they are on the paternaV
side; If only , common.-, insignificant,

put up with uinety. The' same rcl?
applies to maternal uncles and aunts.

Coastal TnMt
Women and Young Girls Who Are Ex
pert Swimmers.
The pearl divers of Japan are the
women. Along the coast of the bay
of Ago and the bay of Gokasho the
thirteen and fourteen year old girls,
after they have finished their primary
school work, go to sea and learn to
dive. They are In the water and learn
to swim almost from babyhood, and
they spend most of their time In the
water except in the coldest season,
from the end of December to the be
ginning of February.
Even during the most Inclement of
seasons they sometimes dive for pearls.
Tbey wear a special dress, white un
derwear and the bair twisted up into
a hard knot. The eyes are protected
by glasses to prevent the entrance of
water. Tubs are suspended from the
waist. " "
A boat in command of a man is as
signed to every five to ten women
divers to carry them to and from the
fishing grounds. When the divers ar
rive ou the grounds tbey leap Into the
water at once and begin to gather oys
ters at the bottom. The oysters are
dropped into the tubs suspended from
their waists.
When these vessels are tilled the div
ers are raised to the surface and jump
into the boats. They dive to a depth
of from five to thirty fathoms without
any special apparatus and retain their
breath while remaining under water
from one to three minutes. Their ages
vary from thirteen to forty years, and
between twenty-five and thirty-five
they are at their prime. New York
Mark Twain In Parliament
After a visit to England once Mark
Twain said on bis return to New York:
"Among other honors heaped upon me
by Englishmen was that of being pho
tographed in parliament. I am not a
member of parliament. Bat neither
am I a member of congress. Has any
fellow American suggested that I
should be photographed In congress?
No. I blush to say that they have not.
And yet here is an honor that might
without risk be bestowed on any great
man. . And yet itwas not bestowed
upon Washington, Jefferson or Lin
coln. When I saw that photograph,
with the mother of parliaments in the
background; and realized my advanc
ing years I said to myself. 'Here are
