CHEEK, DELIVERED SATURDAY, SEPT. 11TH, At the Picnic and Re-pnion of ex-Confederate Veterans in Henderson the Peal Issues that Led to the War Be tween the States. ,,', t nml (Gentlemen. VA't' .'v- diets an.l Comrades: Tnis is a !ay i ltrig f retr.emhered ly the "hi j i'.'.xA' '!cr.i:- s,!!er. It is very pleas- J ai.t f r i.:m to m v that he still hold-, a j p!ae in the memory and a fleet ims of j h; countrymen. ( )ne th:rl "f a fen-j firy has passed since he la:d aside h;s j mi; k-ricnts of .var and ceased to he a j soldier. i Changes have followed thick and last during this event fa 1 period. Changes of conditions, changes of so ciety, changes of law and of govern ment have taken place so rapidly and so great, that it is hard to realize that this is the same country and populated ijV jie sa,e people that it was before the war. " The generation that has grown up during this period know very little what their forefathers suffered and en dured to sustain the cause of a Con sti'utiotial government ; and it stands much to their credit, that they still have an appreciation for the merits of 1 the "1jst ("ause," and an admiration for the courage o! t he Condfederate soldier. When 1 look over this vast assem bly and behold the fx es of many i;ray ha:red mothers, whose husbands and whose son-, were once our comrades in arms when I see the young man of today in the vigor of manhood and the fair maiden m the flower of outh and the young mother wiih her group of manly boys around her, ( her pride and the jewels of the State; and when I look theie upon the voting soldier clad in all the habili ments of war, and armed from head to foot, ready at the first tap of the drum to obey his country's call when I behold all these with one accord gathered here to spread a feast and an entertainment, and to do honor to the I Confederate veteran, I feel that the cau-e of a Constitutional I'nion a ,,;,, ,,t eou d and independent States i not altogether forgotten, and that 'there is life in the old land yet." What if the armies of the South were driven from the field by superior numbers? What if Stale sovereignty was obliterated from the statute books by national legislation? What if our slave property wis taken from us? What if our houses were burned, and our fields desolated? Still we have that about us, which all the powers of war, and all the halls of legislition; and all the proclamations of a sectional I'reis dent .and all the licensed thieves of an invading army; and all the flames of burning cities and houses cannot lie s' roy. We yet have our honor, and the esteem and admiration of the good people of the whole world. In the war between the States wt of the South fought for a principle; that principle is the same today that it was one hundred years ago. It is co eval with the birth of the I'nion, and will live as long as there is a I'nion. The same princ ples that our forefatheis cngr.'.hcd into the Federal Constitution ai tlie convention which formed the con federation kno'.vn as the United States were the same principles that our rep resentatives in Congress in 1.S60 and i No i contended should be applied to the government of the Territories of of Kansas and Nebraska, and to their admission as States into the I'nion. The abolitionists of the North plat ing a different construction on the language of the Constitution said that we of the South should not carry our slave property into the Territories, nor should the Territories be admitted as States into the Union with constitu tions recognizing African slavery. The contention of the people of the South was that according to the com pact and agreement entered into by the general convention of all the States and known as the Federal Constitution, this right was guaranteed to them. The Supreme Court of the United States in the year 1N56 in the famous Dred Scott case had reviewed this whole controversy and Chief Justice Taney in a most learned opinion said that the construction of the South was the true meaning of the Constitu tion. Whereupon William II. Seward, and Floyd (iarrison, Horace (Ireely, Wendell Philips, Thad Stevens and others of that school denounced the Constitution as a "covenant with hell and a league with the devil" and openly declared for a "higher law." In furtherance of their purpose they sent old John Brown and his lay Hawkers into Kansas, armed with Winchester rifles to take possession of the territory and drive out any S urhern man who shau'.d attempt to move in, and bring along with him his slave property. They stole the slaves, and made war on their masters. This refusal cf Congress to enforce the law as declared by the Supreme Couit and its failure to give Federal protection to the Southern emigrant and hi; property in the Territories, and the armed interference of John Hrown and h;s emissaries were the causes, that brought on the war between the States. Tr.e .pest am of giving free dom to the slaves within the States, was not before the public, either in the halls ol Congress or elsewhere, except that around Poston and some other higher law" centers, it was agitated by a tew extreme fanatics. 1 ;ie ag.tation of this .juestton, of treeing the slaves in the States, soon begin to spread rapidly and to work gteat disturbances among the law abiding, conservative Union men of the North, and especially did it excite d ssaiisfactton in the ranks of their sol d.ers. Many of those whose terms of enlistment were about to expire, re fused to re enlist some regiments go ing so far as to threaten to lay down their arms, saying that they "were not liguting to tree the slaves, nor would they rtsl: their lives for the life of a negro." The men ui the North at home were becoming more and more slow to vol unteer, ar.d notwithstanding the in ducements of large bounties, enlist ments were well nigh at a standstill. The outlook for recru its of the North ern army was gloomy in the extreme and Congress was in a state of grea1 perplexity. The complaints of the soldiers had to be quieted, and the protests of the law-abiding, conserva tive party of the North, known as the National Democratic prty had to be appeased and satisfied. To accomplish these obj-cts, and to declare and define exictly the origin and purposes of the war Congress in the month of February, 1SO2, passed a j ;nt resolution declaring that the North was not waging this war on the Southern States, for the purpose of freeing their slaves, but purely for the purpose of bringing back the seceded States, and for the restoration of the L'r. ion. Bear this resolution in mind and let us see how in 1 short time it is nul lified and set aside, and in what an arbitrary and dictatorial manner the policy of the North is changed. In the spring and summer cam paigns following the adoption of this resolution the armies of the South were so successful that they had driven the Northern army across the Potomac and were threatening the Capitol at Washington. Everything indicated that success was about to crown the efforts of the Confederacy, and for eign powers were about to recognize us as a separate n ttion. You, my comrades, remember how bright were our prospects at that time, how full of heme and confidence we were. You remember with whit a bght ami bounding step you forded the Poto mac; yo.t remember how the bands played ami the b ys sang, "Maryland, My Maryland." We thought we could almost see the end of the war with success and victory perched upon our banners. Everything was bright on our side, while on the other side, all was gloom and darkness. For tnem something had to be done and done quickly, or their cause was lost. And what did they do? !ehold a change of policy sudden, radical and great. A change not made by the legislative, or law mak ing power, but by the simple declara tion of the President, as the head of the Executive department. A policy in direct conflict with the Constitution as interpreted by the Supreme Court and in plain contradiction of the pur poses of the war as set forth in the res olution of February, 1S62. Within a few short months, in September of the same year, Abraham Lincoln issued his Emancipation Proclamation, a proclamation declaratory of a purpose to directly interfere with slavery in the States. Any impartial student of history will enquire why so sudden a change of policy by so great a government? Were they driven to it by some great military emergenc)? or was it a strat egic move of statecraft to prevent for eign recognition of the Confederacy? or was it a slab in the back to cripple a victorious adversary? or was it an expression ly the Yankee of his love and affection for the negro? Poster ity will judge. I mention these facts to correct the false impression which many school teachers ar.d many school books are engrafting into the minds of our youth, teaching them, that the sole cause of the war between the North and the South, was the naked question wheth er the negro of the South should be made free or remain a slave. This was not the original issue at all. It had nothing to do with the beginning of hostilities, and every student of true history knows the contrary. If this resolution of Congress above referred to, daclared the truth, which no one, not een President Lincoln dared gainsay, then the assertion that the freedom ot the Southern negro was the cause of the war, is absolutely false. That the destiny of the Southern slae was that in time he was to be come a free man, we verily believe, but i hat he was to become so and at the time and in the manner that he did, is clearly not foreshadowed in the policy of the government that gave it to him. It was some great and sudden emer gency that precipitated it. May it not be, that the emancipated negro is more indebted for his free dom at the time that he received it,, to R. E. Lee than he is to Abraham Lin coln? Lincoln was the power on the throne that declared it; Lee and his bayonets behind the throne were the power that compelled it. Had not the victorious army of Lee vanquished the army of the North, and was then threatening Us Capitol, the emancipa tion proclamation would never have been issued when it was. Coming at the time and under the circumstance that it did, it was noth ing but a war measure a device to prevent the recognition of the Confed eracy by foreign governments an ef fort to neutralize the great victories of the Southern Armies and a coup d'etat to shift the cause of the war to another basis, that would make the Northern side more popular with for eign powers. In this war between the States we had as we believed justice and truth on our side, and as brave men we sealed our convictions with our blood and offered our lives in defence of our cause. We failed in our efforts on the field of battle, but impartial his tory is now giving us credit for the ability and success with which we main tained our honor. The honor and good name of the Southern soldier is bright and untarnished. There is no stain on the fair escutcheon of Jefferson Da vis, and it is no disgrace to have been a follower of Stonewall Jackson or Robert E. Lee. We fought for what we believed then, for what we believe now, and for what we ever will believe was the Right. We fought for a great principle a principle that cannot be estimated in dollars and cents, nor measured by the value of four millions of slaves. It was not for money; not for conquest; not for territory; nor far slavery that we fought: but for the great principles of freedom and equality of equal rights in the Territories as well as in the States principles that our forefathers had battled for and won, and had transmitted to us as rich heirlooms. The reserved rights of the States under the Federal Constitution stands today the same as when the conven tion of 1787 adjourned. The same as when Judge Taney in the Dred Scott case declared them, or when the first gun was fired on Fort Sumter. And now as time rolls on and the clouds of sectional fanaticism begin to pass away and cool reason comes to assert her seat in the minds of men, we see that our construction of the Constitution, thai for which we fought, bled and suffered is affirmed by the highest legal tribunals of several Northern States. Within the last few years the Supreme Court of Illinois, and we think of New Hampshire and Connecticut have rendered decisions sustaining the Southern view of the sovereign rights of the States. And as fanaticism continues to disappear we will see other States follow their decisions. Truth is mighty and will prevail. "Truth though crushed to earth will rise again, Tim eternal years of God are hers; Uut error, wounded, writhes in pain, And die6 amid her worshippers." To maintain our cause we carried on a most unequal war for lour long years, against a power with unlimited resources. At last exhausted and overpowered, wt yielded to the inev itable, and surrendered. As brave and gallant men we sur rendered, and our conqueror Ulysses S. Grant, himself a gallant soldier, and magnanimous man gave us terms both generous and honorable. As honorable men we accepted them, and have ever since 111 good faith observed our promises. We of the S ti'ii are today as loial to the government ol the United States as are the people of the North. We recognize this country as our country, and the old stars and stripes as our flag. Should any foreign foe invade our country, or dare to trample the sacred folds of our flag in the dust, there is no man throughout this broad land lrom Maine to Alaska who would defend it more gallantly, than the Old Confederate Soldier.

This class of disease has puzzled the science of medicine for ages, and the same treatment that was employed centuries ago is now prescribed. Pot ash and mercury are the component parts of every doctor's prescription for diseases of the blood. Many of the so-called blood puri fiers are based on potash and mercury. In fact, S. S. S. (Swift's Specific) is the only blood remedy that is guar anteed purely vegetable, and is the only one that contains no harmful ingredients. S. S. S. is the only blood remedy that cures real blood diseases, obstinate cases that physicians and other remedies have failed to cure. It never fails to cure a blood disease no matter how deep-seated the case. V 'J r .r, Miss Bertha Whitwood. Mr. H. Kuhn, of Marion, Kansas; writes : "About three years ago my grand da tighter Bertha Whitwood, was thrown from a horse, receiving a wc?undof the scalp. Under the treat ment of physicians the wound seemed obstinate, and for several months rer mained about the same, until k finally became very angry looking, and broke out into a running tore. This soon spread to other parts of the scalp, and ran down the side of the neck, in creasing in severity, and fearfully disfiguring her. "After being constantly under a physician for a 3-ear, and her condi tion a jcreat deal worse than at f.rt, we placed her under the care of the faculty of a well-known hospital, but even the treatment she received there failed to arrest the terrible sore. "Keadiiipr of the many cures of biooc! troubles effected by S. S. S., we decided to try it. and it relieved her promptly. At first this remedy seemed to increase the discharge, forcing out the poison; this soon ceased altogether, and the place began to heal. In a few months s,he was entirely cured, nd scarcely a mark now remains where the disease held full sway." S. s.
