"THE SQUARE DEAL"
MARY AND AMERICA.
The name of Mary is curiously and
constantly associated with the men
who developed Amcrica. That is the
reason she has been chosen patroness
of our country.
Columbus' own ship was called St.
Mary of the Conception. Every eve
ning, on the epoch-malting voyage, all
on board sang the "Salve Rogina."
Although Columbus named the first
island at which he touched lor Christ,
he called the second Conception, in
honor of His Mother.
In IC.'iH the Jesuits placed their unit
ed American missions nnder tlio pat
ronage of the Blessed Virgin.
"If the Blessed Virgin Mary assist
our project of finding the mouth of
this grand river," wrote Marquette of
his exploration of the course of the
Mississippi, "we shall name it the Con
"Star of the Sea" was the designa
tion of the vessel in which English
Catholic settlers embarked. Their out
post was denominated St. Mary's, and
to this day the country that surrounds
it is called Maryland.
In 184(1, the Sixth Provincial Coun
cil of Baltimore requested the Holy
See to approve of the selection of
Mary, conceived without sin, as the
patroness of the United States.
We love Mary, then, not only be
cause we are Catholics but because
we are Americans.
TO CHANGE MEMORIAL DAY.
A bill to make the first Sunday in
June the time for the celebration of
Memorial Day instead of May 30 was
introduced into the Indiana legislature
not long ago. It has been felt for
some time by members of the Grand
Army of the Republic and the Span
ish War veterans that the celebration
of Memorial Day was marred by the
making of the day into a time for
sports and games, it is losing sight of
the real meaning, of the celebration.
Several posts of the G. A. It. and min
isterial bodies have in times past sent
communications to the governor of
Indiana urging him to stop some of
the sporting events that have annually
occurred on Memorial Day, but the
govenor has been powerless to do so.
It is said that if the day is celebrated
on Sunday every year the people will
more nearly appreciate the true spirit
of the day and what It stands for.
THE ROMAN'S MEMORIAL.
The Hoinans frequently covered the
couch on which the dead lay with
leaves and flowers. After burial the
grave was decorated with fresh flow
ers on feast days. Growing plants,
too, were planted about the last rest
ing place, and if they grew and flour
ished it was taken as an evidence that,
the departed ones were happy.
HOW MANY MEN ENLISTED IN
THE UNION ARMY.
Of the 75,000 men first called out by
Lincoln a large number—a majority,
indeed—re-enlisted under the first call
for three year men. Each such re-en
listed man appears on the war depart
ment rolls twice. In J8615 a majority
of the three year men re-enlisted and
were designated by the war depart
ment as "veteran volunteers." Each
one of these was reported as two dif
ferent enlistments unless ho had also
served in the three months' service of
April, 18G5, in which case the soldicr
would figure three timeB. Then to
ward the close of the war a majority
of the officers of many regiments were
men who were promoted from the
ranks or from noncommissioned rank,
from which they were discharged "to
accept commissions," as the war de
partment phrased it. Under such con
ditions some men figured as three men
during the war, some figured as four
men, and a few figured as five men.
It would be exceedingly interesting if
a correct answer could bo given as to
how many individual soldiers enlisted
in the armies of tiie north.
MILLIONS FOUGHT ON BOTH
SIDES IN THE CIVIL WAR.
The following estimate of three year
enlistments is quoted from George
Cary Eggleston's "History of the Con
federate War": "The north was able
to enlist an aggregate of 2,778,304, or,
if we reduce this to a basis of three
years service for each man, the Union
enlistments for three full years num
bered no less than 2,32fi,
ly four times the total enlistments in
the Confederate army. Yet the Con
federate armies included practically
every white man in the south who was
able to bear arms."
"OLD JOHN BURNS OF GETTYS
After serving in the war of 1812 and
the Mexican war John nurns of Get
tysburg, Pa., was rejected when he
tried to enlist for the civil war on the
ground that he was too old to fight.
He went with the army as a team
ster, however, and was constable of
Gettysburg when Early's troops occu
pied the town. Single handed he at
tempted to drive the Confederates out
and was locked up. In the thick of
the battle he secured a gun and fought
like a demon. He was captured and
narrowly escaped executiion.
Cold must be the heart of that
American who is not proud to claim
as countrymen the flower of Virigina
youth who- charged up the slippery
slopes of Gettysburg with gallant Pic
«,er present humor, and Mexico opens

The Catholics of the country are
anxiously awaiting the decision of
Honorable Newton D. Baker, Secre
tary of War, regarding the permis
sion to erect the memorial to the
"Nuns of the Battlefield" in Arlington
National Cemetery. Letters and re
'luests relative to this memorial have
been pouring into the war depart
ment the last few weeks, and the de

Data has been filed within the last
few days with the war department
giving a list of the memorials erect
ed where the remains have not been
interred, and in order to establish the
fact that the Orders of Sisterhood re
ferred to in the House Joint Resolu
tion wen regularly enlisted in the
service during the Civil War atten
tion lias been called to the following
passage taken from tile congressional
record of July 2i, 1892, page Ci7!l7:
"Mr. Davis: We have been putting
army nurses individually on tlx pen
sion roll for fifteen years: the remain
der of them have grown old, many of
them are over 70 and the question is
whether we shall do that, by one com
prehensive net of legislation which we
do by special acts just as fast as they
come up for pensions."
"MR. COCKRELL: When the (list
bill was introduced on the subject, of
granting pensions to nurses a very
comprehensive bill, in my judgment, it
would have included cooks and every
body of that kind. We. had consid
erable wrangling over it. here in the
senate, and I took some pains to get
at all the data in regard to the ques
tion of army nurses. I have quite a
mass here which I have collected at
different times from the war depart
ment. I have all the orders which
were issued by the war department
uithorizing the employment of army
nurses, and also the pay they received.
Some of them were paid 40 eent.s a
day, and other rates of compensation
were paid. The whole question I have
got. together as fully as I could.
"I also have made a classified sched
ule of female hospital employes as
shown by the records on file ill the
Record and Pension Division, War De
partment, that shows under the differ
ent heads of nurses, cooks, matrons,
laundresses, and undetermined, the
number under all of these various
"When we come to the nurses—and
this bill Includes only the nurses who
were hired under contract—there were
407 white and 281 colored, making
778 in all hired under contract. Of
those who were volunteers,
white and none colored.
Memorial to the "Angels
of the Battlefield"
sent the following letter to
the secretary on May 11:
"Honorable and Dear Sir:
"The AMERICAN FEDERATION
OK CATHOLIC SOCIETIES, repre
senting three million members, is
greatly interested in the contemplat
ed work of erecting a monument, in
Arlington cemetery for the nuns of
the battlefields by the Ladies Auxiliary
of the Ancient Order of Hibernians.
We understand that a favorable de
cision from you will result in Con
gress approving of the matter. It is
needless to inform you of the great
services rendered by these sisterhoods
during our late wars and that their
services, like the services of our sol
diers, deserve a monument, in our na
"THE AMERICAN FKDKUATION
OF CATHOLIC SOCIETIES expects
that your honor will give this matter
your earnest consideration and will
appreciate your efforts in behalf of
this worthy memorial, which is to be
erected by the noble daughters of the
Ancient Order of Hibernians and at
no expense to the government.
'With sentiments of high esteem. I
"Very faithfully yours,
specially authorized by the
war department to employ nurses, had
white and no colored. OP THE
SISTERS OF CHARITY THERE
WERE 248 white and no colored.
The total number above does
not represent the total number of fe
males employed In the hospital ser
vice during the war but only those
whose names have been found of rec
ord. Many records are missing and
others are so Imperfect that the in
formation they contain is but of little
value. The total number of female
employes of each class was undoubt
edly much larger than stated above."
The following named sisters were
pensioned by the bill passed at that
Sister M. De Sales, Notre Dame,
Ind. Sister Mary De Chantal, Brook
lyn, N. Sister Helen, Notre Dame,
Ind. Sister M. Matilda, Notre Dame,
Ind. Sister M. Passion, Notre Dame,

Ind. Sister M. Victoria, Notre Dame,
Ind. Sister Mary Cephas, Baltimore,
Md. Sister Ferdinand, Baltimore,
Md. Sister Mary Stanislaus, Mt.
Washington, Md. Sister Mary Veron
ica. Baltimore, Md.
The fact that they were pensioned
in accordance with the terms of the
omnibus pension bill is conclusive
proot that they were regularly en
listed in the service.
Under the Act of March 3, 1897,
army nurses, honorably discharged,
from their services as such, may be
buried in any national cemetery and,
il in a destitute condition, free of
cost. The Secretary of War is author
ized to issue certificates to those army
nurses entitled to such burial.
Following this Act of March 3, 1897,
about 25 Civil War nurses, all females,
have been buried in Arlington Na
It is a matter of record the hos
pitals the Sisters did service in, and
once when rations were low and the
War Department refused supplies to
the Sisters of Mercy the case was
placed before the President, who
"To all whom it may concern: On
application of the Sisters of Mercy of
Chicago, or the Military Hospital in
Washington, furnish such provisions
as they desire to purchaso and charge
same to the War Department.
Mrs. Ellen Ryan Jolly, national
president of the Ladies' Auxiliary and
author of the bill for the erection of
this memorial, has worked unceasing
ly in the last two years, that the
memorial to the "Angels of the Bat
tlefield" may rise in "beautiful Ar
lington" among the memorials of
those who fought and fell in that mem
orable and epochal fray.
In closing her appeal to Secretary
Baker she says: "We respectfully di
rect attention to the fact. that, the res
olution now pending before the Com
mittoe on Library of the House, the
passage of which depends upon the
attitude of the War Department, is,
in scope and purpose, in harmony with
the aims and ends intended when the
Arlington Cemetery was selected as a
site for burial purposes, that the erec
tion of the proposed memorial will
not establish undesirable precedent,
because the law and the facts in the
case entirely justify the proposition
that the service rendered by these
Sisters during the Civil War is so
unique that it. stands out in a class
by itself, and, on the testimony of
the leaders In that great struggle and
of Abraham Lincoln himself, no paral
lel can be presented to it therefore
il is well nigh impossible to conceive
how any other orders or societies
throughout the country could present
a similar case for recognition. But if
the fear or establishing an undesir
able precedent is the only obstacle in
the premises, we respectfully submit,
in addition to the argument already
oflered, that Congress can always be
depended upon to safeguard the Ar
lington Cemtery against any proposal
that would tend to alter or even modi
fy the purposes for which this na
tional cemetery was originally estab
The erection of this memorial calls
up the reflection that public memor
ials and statues of women are few,
and yet Abraham Lincoln said: "If
all that has been said by orators and
poets since the creation of the world
in praise of women were applied to
the women of America, it would not
do them justice for their conduct dur
ing the war."
In Statuary Hall at the capitol there
is a marble statue of Frances 10. Wil

of the slate of Illinois.
