Park Paiillmii
The meeting at Como park las night was
called to order by Col R M Henderson
The programme was that Mayor Smith
should on behalf of the city welcome the
exConfederates to Fort Worth but on ac
count of an important meeting of the city
council he was unable to be present aud
Hon James W Swayne was called uxjii
to welcome the visitors to the
city Mr Swayne said It seems
that some one has to be called upon to wel
come our visitors to Fort Worth and I take
it as a pleasure and as an honor that it falls
to my lot to do so That Fort Worth has
alwaj s been hospitable to every organiza
tion that has met within her borders and
sjft 3ks always extended a welcome to whomso
ever has come is well known throughout
Texas and how much more should
we welcome you who fought for
us and bled for the lost cause But it mat
ters not so far as our hospitality is con
cerned whether you fought lor the North
or for the South you are welcome to our
city If there is anything in Fort Worth
which you want ask for it and it is yours
If there is anything that you hesitate to ask
fortake it without the asking remembering
that you are exConfederates and
that Fort Worth knows that you are
her guests If there have lieen mistakes in
your reception it is because others have
waited for the committee to act thinking
that all necessary arrangements had been
made I f there has been any seeming lack
of hospitality I assure you it is not in tho
bosom of this people The body of the
people rejoice that you are in our inidstaud
on behalf of these 1 asrain extend to you
a most hearty geeting and welcome from
the people of Fort Worthassuring you that
one and all of us will bo more than pleased
to entertain outit our firesides and give
you our heartiest welcome
Capt C C Cummiugi was to have deliv
ered an address of welcome on behalf of R
E Lee camp of exConfederates but for
some reason presumably on account
of sickness he was absent
and Capt Veal addresoed the veterans in
behalf of Ii 11 Lee camp as follows
Capt Cummings who was to have deliv
ered an address of welcome on behalf of
our camp is absent H is absence is I am
certain occasioned by some reason that is
imperative I shall make you no speech
but as a member of U K Lee camp in ai
dition to what Mr Swayne has said I wi
to extend ou a hearty wcleojtie
from every citizen of Fort IVoifh
and from each member of Lee camp eoi
a soldier s welcome These reunions
conduchu to a rejuvenation or us old sol
diers When I attended the lirst reunion I
felt as if live years would be added to my
life After I had returned from the second
I added ten more years to my allowance
At tho next the period was lengthened to
fifteen then to twenty and when 1 re
turned from the last one about three
mouths ago I felt as if t would
like to live always among ihose old Confed
erate comrades who fought so bravely In
this connection I wish to say in honor ot
those who died and tlso of those who
still live that no history however ancient
furnishes a counterpart for the bravery and
silfsacriiice shown by the Confederate sol
diery Those opposing us had the treasury
of the government to back them had full
rations and all the equipments of
war iDifferent motives promptedjthe North
and the South Somes of those whowore
the blue fought for the freedom of the ne
gro others for glory and others still for
the old Hag The South s motives were the
preservation of tho homes of her people
and to keep inviolate the rights which she
deemed were inalienable In tho attempt
to protect their firesides and retain these
rights I hey fought with a desjieration sel
dom witnessed Fought shoeless without
clothes and hungry I have known com
rades to exist for live dais with no more
than a handful of corn to each man and
lighting constantly Such sufferings and
such privations as these were endured by
the men who have met here today
Some years since I stood in the cemetery
on Arlington Heights overlooking Washing
ton City Here are buried many brave sol
diers Over the grave of every Uuionsoldier
rests a white marble shaft that glistens in
the sunlight So far as possible the name
of each soldier is carved in the stone In
one corner of the cemetery there is another
patch of graves Over these no marble
shafts point sunward Instead there rests
at the head of each mound a narrow pine
board made yellow by wind aud weather
On this board there is painted in letters of
black the single word rebel Standing
before these graves in company with
a party of irentlenien with these crceu
mounds and this epitaph of ono syllable star
ring me in the face I was asked what I
thought of tho inscription I answered
tnat it was the grandest that could have
been written and that 1 wanted no grander
placed upon my tomb Every Confederate
should remember the noble women of
our Sunny Southland Had it not
been for the encouragement and
love of daughters sisters and
wives the struggle would have ended much
sooner What they endured for us should
never bo forgotten but should be a crown of
glory to the sex And now my comrades 1
again bid you a hearty welcome in behalf
of K E Lee camp
Judire II J league a member of Ross
brigade on behalf of the association re
siKmdcd to the address of welcome Judge
Teague said In the tns t place
on behalf of the Confederate vet
erans who have assembled in
Fort Worth I desire to thank the gen
tlemen who have spoken o kindly and
through them to thank the citizens of Fort
Worth We accept the kind expressions for
their full worth and feel certain thaV
it but echoes the sentiment of the people ot
Fort Worth We have become gratified at
our reception and assure you that we shall
take nothing home save kind remem
brances of our stay in jour ciiy
This could be made the occasion for re
marks of a varied nature but 1 wish to
sjicak a word for the soldier who lost his
all tar that which he thought was right
For him who fought and lost all
except honor a word of good cheer is al
ways salutari When I met my immediate
comrades at Terrell some years ako at the
li lst reunion pleasant feelings came over me
When 1 saw these old comrades whom I had
last seen on the bloody field of battle and
talked with them of the old battle grounds
of the lost cause and of the brave boys
who have left us breasts heaved and faces
blanched that had not done so since
the scenes we talked of had been in reality
enacted I knew then that the bond of
sympathy was unbreakable aud would last
through life It was the Confederate soldier
and 1 am glad that an opportun
ity presents itself that 1 inav
express my appreciation of his lofty char
acter and high attainments It may seem
strange to the youth of the country to see
us meet together and to witness the en
thusiasm displayed but to you my dear
comrades it seems natural
Judge Teague then reviewed the causes
which led to the war and showed whv the
> eople of the South thought it was their
right to secede He said he thought it
but right that all the causes
should be known and that the
children of exConfederates should be
taught that their fathers were not rebels
and traitors but men who fought
for a cause which they thought
was just and for principles which
weio imbedded in justice HetoM how the
South thought the institution of slavery
should ba governed locally and that the
srovernment had no right to interfere that
the South when it seceded contemplated
no treason to the country and that
no one will accuse them as traitors The
si > eaker then reviewed some of the great
lessons taught the nation by the war and
closed by pnying a tribute to the bravery
of those who fought on either side saying
that tho military achievements of both
sid f were but the common heritage of the
American people and would ever live green
in their memory
Judge Teagues speech was an exceed
ingly interesting one and teemed with elo
quent climaxes and beautiful descriptions
Space forbids a more extended report of
the speech

Morris Park N Y Aug 11 About
10000 persons made a trip here today to see
the struggle for the junior championship
and they were treated to a day
c firstclass racing The number
of persons present did not indicate
the interest in the race by any means but
the weather was so insufferably hot
that when the time to start for the
track arrived none but the most en
thusiastic could muster sufficient courage
to undertake the journey They thought
that the grand stand would be a roaring
lurnaee but they were mistaken About 1
oclock heavy clouds came up and acted
as a veil to the suns rays and
quite a respectable breeze as
sisted very materially in cooling
the atmosphere Still it was not exactly
cool but it was better than roasting in
the city The best twoyearolds of
the year including His Highness
St riorian Victory and Normad w ere not
eligible to start for the rich purse but
thero were Merry Monarch a colt
that was considered but a few pounds
below His Highness Dagonet
Yorkvillo Belle Georgia and a number of
other good ones to make it interesting for
the talent The track could not have been
in better condition and ono of the best jun
ior champions ever run was looked for
The big event was the second on the card
and names of the probable starters were no
sooner posted than a wild rush was made
for the betting ring Nothing was wanted
but Merry Monarch He opened at 7 to 5
and thousands of dollars were bet on
him The bookmakers stood the onslaught
manfully but the bulk of the money was so
great that his price was gradually cut to
11 to 10 at which he closed There
was a rally on Dagonet and at
C to 1 he was heavily backed The next to
receive support was Marcus Dalys stable
consisting of Sir Matthew Silver Fox
and Tammany At S to 1 they
carried thousands of dollars while
They all carried US pounds except Geor
gia aud Yorlrville Belle who had 115 pounds
up Mr Caldwell secured a good
start at the second effort with
Merry Monarch the first to show
Lew Weir coupled 20 to 1 Freemout 15

Of the others Bashford Yorkville Belle and

support The starters and betting were as
follows Bashford 12 to 1 Phil Divyer and
closely followed by Dagonet Georgia aud
Patrimony colt with Yorkvillo Belle aud
Ij W Wier last Georgia at once shot to
the front and showed tho way to the top
