Tay lor defended the South against bitter remarks by Senator Heyburn, is the last that he delivered in the United States Senate: Mr. Taylor Mr. President, I do not propose to speak with reference to the pending bill, but with reference to the remarks of the distinguished Senator from Idaho (Mr. Heyburn.) I think it rather late in the day for Senators of the United States to stand upon this floor and reopen the wounds of the civil war. Like the Senator from Idaho, I belonged to the "infantry" during the war. ' . Mr. Heyburn Will ask if the Sena tor is asking mo a qucsliou,. Mr. Taylor I did not ask the Sena tor any question. ' Mr. Heyburn It was merely a pas sing remark? Mr. Taylor I decline to ask the Sen ator a question I think all informed men know that the civil war did not be gin in loOl. It began when this Re public was born. It was fought out for sixty years in every forum, in the columns of the press, and everywhere, until it finally culminated in the clash of arms. It was a struggle between the doctrine of Federal supremacy on the one hand and the doctrine ,of State sov ereignty on the other. It culminated at last in 1861. It was the conflict that Webster foresaw when ho exclaim ed upon this floor: "When my eyes shall be turned to behold for the hist time the sun in the heaven, may I not see him shining on the broken and dishonored fragments of a once glorious Union; on States dissev ered, discordant, belligerent; on a land parched with civil feud3, or drenched, it may be, in fraternal blood!" It was the struggle that Clay put off for a quarter of a century with his great compromise measures. It was the struggle that Andrew Jackson delayed when be held up his bony hand toward heaven and swore: 'By th3 Eternal the Union must and shall be preserved!" But neither Webster, nor Clay, nor Jackson, nor any other power under the sun could prevent it. It finally broke upon the land, and death stood grim and terrible on a hundred battle fields, beckoning a million men to tire opening grave. The North came out of the war the victor, but the men who wore the gray d not sulk. They laid down their musket and canteen and entered in good faith all the armies of industry. I do not believe that a man can be a good citizen who will now stand any where under the flag and attempt to keep the sections of this Union apart. Mr. President, I am an American I believe in American ideals and Amer ican institutions. Every State in the Union is as much my State as Tennes see is my State, and the deeds of every great American soldier in that war are my heritage and the heritage of my children. Many times I have stood out there m the rotunda before the statue of Ulysses S. Grant, the leader of the Union Armies, and my heart thrilled with pride that he was an American ana l aamirea mm for his genius in war and his generosity to the South in peace, and when I nave turned away from him and looked upon the statue of another great American- soldier, standmg there silent .in the Hall of Fame in his Confederate uniform, I have woudered how any American. whether in the North or in the South, could be so oblivious to those noble and God-like qualities of brain and heart which make mm truly great as to sneer at the name of Lee. Mr. i resiuenc,. t.ne war is over, lime has pulled down the forts and leveled trenches. Time has healed and comforted, "until now there is nothing left but precious memories. The Men who wor the my . delight U hwtM.r the brave men who wore the blue and who met them in battle for the settle ment of a controversy that began with the Republic. But they do not love the men who never smelt gunpowder and who now right the war over again and unlimber their batteries of bitter ness on the cemeteries of the South and upon the statues and monuments to heroic; dead. i The South has struggled to the front in all the elements of industry. The men who wore the gray are as true to the flag to-day as the men who were the blue. Their sons have fought under the Stars and Stripes since the civil war.' I was Governor of my State when the Spanish war came on, and when President McKinley called for volunteers I was one of the first Gov ernors to put my quota in the field. I came hero to beg the President to let nie have more regiments. Thev join ed the sons of the men who wore the blue to fight for their country. -w . 1 . W 1 miring mat war i was uown in Mississippi. I went into a little town and found a coterie of young men bit terly protesting against the sons of Confederate soldiers marching under the Federal flag anti wearing that blue uniform. I saw an old man sitting among them. Finally he said, "Young men, I do not wish to engage in your discussion, but I followed the Stars and Bars four long, weary years. I sur rendered at Appomattox. I went home barefooted and in rags, to find ray country desolate and my home in ashes, I swore eternal vengeance against that flag and against that uniform. But one day not long ago I saw a Mis sissippi regiment marching upon the street under that flag. and iu that uni form, and I saw my boy in the ranks. I rushed to the Colonel and said to him, Make these boys take off that uniform and let them wear the gray in this war, and show to the world how the sons of Confederate veterans can fight.' But the Colonel smiled and said, 'No, they must wear the blue and march under the old flag.' I went to my home, still nursing my revenge more than ever. But when they brought my boy home ir his coffin and I bent over him and looked upon him there in his blue uniform and wrapped in his country's flag, in a mo ment, all the animosities of the past vanished, and I said, "Henceforth that is my flag, that uniform is my uniform, and "henceforth this whole country is my country.' " Mr. President, this is the spirit that must animate the people of this coun try. The men of the South for forty years have contributed their part to build monuments to the Federal dead. They have contributed their part in pensions to the men who wore the blue. Now, after forty-six years have come and gone, while we are building a monument in the South' to commemorate the deeds of brave men who followed the Federal nag, is it asking too much to build a monument to the bravo men who met them face to face upon the battlefield and on the water? Why not build it? The Southern people wore not guilty of treason. They fought for what they believed was right. No man will die for a cause which he does not believe is right. Mr. President, it is the best way in the world to wipe out the sectional lines. It is the best way in the world to make us truly one people, with com mon hopes, common fears, and a com mon destiny. J appeal to the Senate, especially to the men of the North, to vote for this pittan to honor the cour age and the bravery of the men who fought under the Stars and Baciand we will stand there under Old Glory and say to the men who followed it, "Unfurl it to the breezes, for it is the flag of our reunited country," and the men who wore the gray wilfstand un der it with unco re rod heads and ac knowledge it as their flag.

Mr. Pierce owned a large farm just across the bottom from this place and left homo in the morning driving a spirited horse. Driving to a break in the levpo ho left his horse and buggy and feriied over. . In the afternoon he secured he serv ices of the livery man, T, F. Most ley, to take him back to his tiArsc that was hitched on the levee. This was done and he started for home about 3 o'clock i:i the afternoon. At a place where the river runs close to the levee it seems that the horse must have gotten excited and plunged off in to the river until the buggy was cow- but the whir, !!'!
