But the soldiers who won at Geti

j a finish the civil war and thereby
I made their countjymen forever their
debtors, have left us far more than
I the memories of the war itself. They
j fought for four years in order that on
this continent those who came after
them, their children and their children's
children, might enjoy a lasting
peace. They took arms not to destroy,
but to save liberty; not to overthrow,
but to estabiish tbe supremacy of the
law. The crisis which they faced
was to determine whether or not this
people was fit for self-government and
therefore fit for liberty. Freedom is
not a gilt which can be enjoyed save
by those who show themselves worthy
of it. In this world no privilege
can be permanently appropriated by
meri wtm.hn.ve not the '"bower and the

which is worth anything is the freedom
which means self-government and
n.?f anHr^hv Freedom thus conceived
is a more constructive force, which
enables an intelligent and good man
to do better tilings than he couid do
without it; which is in its essence the
substitution of self-restraint for external
restraint?the substitution of a
form of restraint which promotes
progress for the form which retards
it. This is the right view of freedom;
but it can only be taken if there is a
full recognition of the close connection
between liberty and responsibility in
every domain of human thought. It
was essentially the view taken by
Abraham Lincoln, and by all those
who, when the civil war broke out,
realized that in self-governing democracy
those who desire to )>e considered
fit to enjoy liberty must show that
they know how to use it with moderation
and justice in peace, and how to
fight for it when it is jeoparded by
malice domestic or foreign levy.
The lessons they, taught us are lessons
as applicable in our every day
lives now as in the rare times of great
stress. The men who made this field
forever memorable did so because
they combined the power of fealty to a i
lofty idea! with the power of showing
that fealty in hard, practical, common
sense fashion. They stood for
the life of effort, not the life of ease.
They had that love of country, that
love of justice, that love 01 tnetr ieilow-men,
without which power and resourceful
efficiency but make a man
a danger to his fellows. Yet, in addition
thereto, they likewise possessed
the power and the efficiency; for
otherwise their high purpose would
have been barren of result. They
knew each how to act for himself,
and yet each how to act with his fellows.
They learned, as all the generation
of the civil war learned, that
rare indeed is the chance to do anyihng
worth doing by one sudden ana
' violent effort. The men who bolievea
that the civil war would be ended in
ninety days, the men who cried loudest
"On to Richmond,' if they had the
right stuff in them speedily learned
their error; and the war was actually
won by those who settled themselves
steadfastly down to fight for three
years, or for as mucii"" longer as the
war might last, and who gradually

to face his crowded hour of success
or failure; the men in front fought;
the men behind supplied and pushed
forward those in front; and the final
victory was due to the deeds of ail
who played tlieir parts well and manfully
in the scores of battles, in the
countless skirmishes, in march, in
camp, or in reserve, as commissioned
officers, or in the ranks?wherever
and whenever duty called them. Just
so it must be for us in civil life. We
can make and keep this country worthy
of the men who gave their lives
to save it, only on condition that the
average man among us on the whole
does his duty bravely, loyally, and
with common sense, in whatever position
life allots to him. National great
ness is of slow growth. It cannot be
forced and yet be stable and enduring;
for it is based fundamentally
upon national character, and national
character is stamped deep In a
people by the lives of many generations.
The men who went into the
army had to submit to discipline, had
to submit to restraint through the
government of the leaders they had
chosen, as the price of winning. So
we, the people, can preserve our liberty
and our greatness in time of
peace only by exercising the virtues
of honesty, of self-restraint, and of
fair dealing between man and man. In
all the ages of the past men have seen
counlries lose tneir iinerry, iwausi;
their people could not restrain and order
themselves, and therefore forfeit
the right to what they were unable to
use with wisdom.
It was because you men of the civil
war both knew how to use liberty
temperately and how to defend it at
need that we and our children and
our children's children shall hold you
in honor forever. Here, on Memorial
Day, on this great battlefield, we com- j
memorate not only the chiefs who actually
won this battle; not only Meade,
and his lieutenants, Hancock and Reynolds
and Howard and Sickles, and
the many others whose names flame
in our annals; but also the chiefs
who had made the army of the Potomac
what it was, and those who afterward
led in the campaigns which were
crowned at Appomattox; and furthermore
those who made and used its sistor
armies; McCielian, with his extraordinary
genius for organization;

chance to write their names on the
tablets of fame: the men who marched
and fought in the ranks, who were
buried in long trenches on the field of
battle, who died in cots marked only
by numbers In the hospitals; who, if
they lived, when the war was over,
went back each to his task on the
farm or in the town, to do his duty
in peace as he had done it in war:
to take up the threads of his working
life where lie had dropped them when

The County Court will hold a
meeting within the next few day.",
to let the contract for the erection
of the pier at the west end of the
Monongahela bridge at this place.
The Court is tired of waiting on the * g
slowness of the B. &. O., and is going
to start the work. A. certain
time was given the B. & O. at the
Pittsburg meeting and local depot
last week. The B. &. O. tried to bluff
the Court but It would not work, auS
the conference ended without any
'action being taken. Now forbearance
has ceased to be a virtue with
the Court and it intends to start
the work at once. If the B. & O.
wants to accept the additional
20 feet and build the pier, the Couit
is willing, but the work must beginat
once. The way the B. & O. wants
to do is to take $20,000 or $25,009
worth of the county's property and
pay about $1,500 in building the pier,
hut that kind of thing does not work
tvith the Court. So now it will be
up to the B. & O. to "speak or forev- k
er hold its peace."
