The Peck & 185 to 307 Middle St. Lines Co., Bridgeport, Ct. Comrades of Custer Post, Ladies and Gentlemen: I wish first of all, to ex press tbe pleasure 1 feel on tbis occa sion tbe pleasure I experience in tbus meeting my fellow townspeople. Tbe tie tbat unites me to tbis old town is one of tbe strongest of tbe buman beast, tbe tie of birtb. If it be possi ble tbat tie will be stronger from tbis day fortb. We bave scriptural au thority for it, tbat a prophet is with out bonor in bis own country, but I feel tbat I was invited to. meet and address you to-day for no other rea son, save tbat I was born and reared on one of your rock-ribbed hills. The motive is honorable to you ana com plimentary to me, and I will never forget it. But I feel a peculiar delight in meeting tbe comrades of Custer Post of the Grand Army of the Republic. I am always glad to meet and do hon or to those who in the dark days of the Rebellion, sacrificed tbemselves that tbis glorious and free republic might not perish . from the earth. But I bave a special feeling of kindliness for tbe comrades of Custer Post, for as a boy, I bad a humble part in the cere monies at the institution of tbe Post. The poet says, "The thoughts of youth are long, long thoughts.' Tbe thoughts of that day are witb me yet, as vivid and lively as tbe thougbts of yesterday, though it must be thirty ago. In those days I was a member of tbe old St Rose's drum corps. On tbe day of installation, the veterans beaded by a brass band and tbe drum corps, marched through Newtown street and thence to Sandy Hook, where the cere monies were completed. I also re member how my boyish pride was tic kled when a veteran afterwards told me tbat for marching he preferred the drum corps to the brass band. It was more martial, more Inspiring, more warlike. I hardly think he was in dulging in "blarney," for he was not an Irishman. Anyway we played dur ing the march, "Garry own," which our great President Roosevelt has de clared to be the greatest fighting tune ever composed. I shall never forget the pride and importance I felt on that day. I was associated witb vet erans; I was marching with men who bad actually been in war, who bad gone through fields and up heights in the face of shot and shell, the leaden rain and iron hail of tbe poet. To me, it was romantic. No soldier of Grant, Sherman and Sheridan's army, march ing triumphantly through Washing ton ai the close of the war, was bigger than I. I thought I deserved well of my country. I had done something to save the republic. You were heroes to me, and I was associated with he roes. Comrades of Custer Post: You were heroes to me then, and you are heroes to me now I have grown to middle age; I am better able now, mentally, to arrasn the awful significance of the Civil war, its causes, its terrible cost in blcod and treasure, its magnificent results. I understand now what I did not understand as a boy that if this union was disrupted in '61, it weuld have been the most tremendous catas trophe in the history of tbe bumanrdown race. You, members of Custer Post, and your comrades in arms, animated by a lofty spirit of self-sacrifice ana a heroic love of country, averted that calamity, saved the Union, preserved liberty, and passed 'along to suc ceeding generations tbe priceless beritage purchased by tbe blood of Revolutionary sires. So I am proud to greet you to-day. It is A PRIVILEGE TO VOICE THE HONOR AND VENERATION in which a grateful people hold you and your comrades. The soldiers of the great Civil war may indulge in pardonable pride. Tbe American people are justly proud of them. Tbey were the greatest sol diers of all history. We are compel! ed to go back to tbe ancient, legen dary history of the Roman republic, to and anything approacmng inem in simplicity and heroism. You bave all heard of that old Roman soldier and general, who, when he was called up on to save his country, was found till ing his field. Patriotic, he answered his country's call, and when he had ac complished a hero's work, and had crushed his country's enemies, he re turned to tbe calm and quiet of farm ing life. The American soldiers in like manner came from the farm and workshop. Tbey were citizen sol diers. They were neither hirelings nor mercenaries. They were not pro fessional fighters seeking reward in loot and booty. They were animated solely by a love of country, and to help tbeir country in the hour of distress, they left their ordinary avocations ard went to the front. And these peaceful citizens, who as Americans hated war and bloodshed were molded into the bravest and most efficient army of ancient or modern times; and when they had finished their work a work in which were bound up the weal and happiness of unborn millions, tbey came back borne, took up the thread of life where it had been sever ed, and followed the avocations of plain, everyday citizens, all uncon scious, 'apparently, of having done deeds, and accomplished results, which history will never cease to glorify. My Friends: When we see tbese old sol diers living out tbeir simple lives, un pretentious, unboastf ul, we are apt to forget, we fail to realize tbat tbey were actors in the greatest tragedy of human history, and that they acted their parts well. Let me make some comparisons. The comparisons are between tbe losses in some of the great battles of tbe Civil war, and those of some of tbe most famous bat tles of modern Europe. Tbe official reports give tbe following as tbe loss es in killed and wounded in seven out of a tbousand hotly contested battles during the four years war: Seven Days' fight, 9291; Antietam, 11426; Murfreesboro, 8778; Gettysburg, 16, 426; Chickamauga, 10,906; Wilderness and Spottsylvania, 24,481. . In the battle of Marengo, tbe Frencb lost in killed and wounded. 4700; the Austrians, 6475; in tbe battle of Ho henlinden, tbe French loss in killed and wounded was 2200, the Austrian loss, 5000; at Au8terlitz, the Frencb loss was 9000; at Waterloo, Welling ton lost 9061 in killed and wounded, Blucber, 5613, making the total loss of tbe allies, 14674. I quote tbese figures froov the late Gen Wheeler,' who says apropos of them: "I mention these facts, because such sanguinary con flicts as those of our Civil war could only have occurred when the soldiers of both contending armies were men of superb determination and courage. Such unquestioned prowess should be gratifying to all Americans, showing to the world as tbey did, that the in trepid fortitude and courage of Amer cans have excelled that of any other people upon tbe earth." The people of Newtown have reason to be proud of tbe part tbey took in the great wan NEWTOWN BOYS FORMED A GOOD PART of many of the Connecticut regiments. In my youth I heard much of their doings from the mouths of the old sol diers. But I heard very little of tbeir bravery and dogged fighting. Heroes are always modest. They prefer to let others recount tbeir acts, and tbe comrades from old Newtown, it seems to me, have chosen to leave to history the telling of their deeds. I am glad to bear testimony tbat tbey were the equals of the bravest of the brave men of the Civil war. I hope it will not appear invidious to mention one regiment, where all were equal. Ab uno disce omnes from one example, learn the character of all. Several years ago, down in Pennsylvania, view ing tbe panorama field of Gettysburg, I asked the guide to show me tbe posi tion of tbe 17th Connecticut. Point ing to a distance, he said: "Tbey were off tbere, during the first day's fight, and did some of tbe hardest fighting of the battle." Let us remember tbere never was fighting comparable to that of Gettysburg. Never in all history was there a charge, for dash and desperate courage, like that of Pickett's brigade at Gettysburg; and we know it was stubbornly met, and driven back, sbattered and destroyed. And tbe 17th Connecticut did some of the hardest fighting of the battle. Comrades of Custer Post: Over 40 years bave rolled by since you laid your arms. iou nave Deen spared to see the fruitful results of your sacrifices. You see your country to-day, a world power, tbe admiration and envy of the civilized world. What emotions of pride must thrill your hearts to-day. Ana wnen the last re veille will be sounded and you will go to join your brethren,! whose graves we decorate to-aay, tne tnougnt tnat you have not lived in vain, the remem brance of duty nobly performed will sustain you, ana you win lay your selves down, conscious that as long as freedom endures, your deeds shall not be forgotten. Friends: I do not wish anything I say here to be interpreted as a glorifi cation of war. No words can fitly de scribe tbe cruelty and barbarity of war. We all know what Sherman thought of it. A lady once asked Wellington how it felt to gain a vic tory. "Madam," he replied, "a victo ry is the worst possible tragedy on tbis earth, except defeat." May tbe shad ows of war never darken our happy land! But tbere are worse things than war. Injustice is worse than war; tyranny Is worse than war; na tional cowardice and dishonor are worse than war; but should the emer gency ever arise, should a crisis ever come, may the Americans of that day meet it, as did tbe men whose prowess ana courage we commemorate to-aay. This solemn and interesting observ ance of Memorial day, by the good peo ple of Newtown, is an auspicious omen, il is a proof that THE FIRES OF PATRIOTISM ARB NOT extinguished; tbat you remember what the rights and liberties of American citizens have cost. Oh! that for all time, in every namieD ana town and city, like serv ices might be held. Orville Dewey, a ceieDraiea jn ew England preacher ana writer, says: "A free people must be a thoughtful people, for it has to do the greatest thing in the world to govern itself." It is well to spend a day like this in serious thought, thought on the origin and history of our country, on its vicissitudes and triumphs, its dangers, our duties as citizens. Only in tbis way, sball we be incited to live up to the high standard of American citizenship. If we forget what our rights and privileges cost, there is danger that we undervalue them. Sometime ago one of our leading journals was asked if the (lag on Dec oration day should be at half mast, or should float from tbe masthead. Its answer was that it should lloat from the masthead. The flag at half mast is a symbol of sadness, of sorrow. But tbis is not a day of gloom. It is true we commemorate the dead, but the dead whose death was glorious. Tbe Christian church has always celebrat ed with joy the days on which its martyrs died, because by their death they glorified God and the church, and . their death was tbe beginning of happiness and life the life eternal. Next to God is country and next to religion is patrio tism, if, nasrjeensaia: "jno praise goes beyond tbe deserts of patriotism. It is sublime in its heroic- oblation on a field of battle." "Oh! glorious is be who for bis country falls," exclaims the Trojan warrier, Hector. So in a measure Memorial day is a day of glad ness. We rejoice that the heroic dead had tbe virtue and power to give themselves for their country. They have won imperishable glory and we need not sorrow for them. We re joice that we as Americans share tbeir renown. But we should regret to see the day degenerate into a mere holiday, a day of mere pastimes and sports. Let our joy on the Fourth of July be uncon fined, for it is tbe birtbday of freedom; let us rejoice on Washington and Lin coln's birthdays, that such men were born into the world. But on.Memorl al day let us be thoughtful and take to heart tbe lessons it brings us. Let us learn to bate injustice, selfishness and indifference to the prosperity and good name of our country. In other words let us learn to be just, unselfish and patriotic. Tbe MEN WHOM WE HONOR TO DAY HATED INJUSTICE. A great wrong was being perpetrated on a whole race. Human beings were held in a bondage worse than death. They were treated as chattels, bought and sold like beasts of bur den. Ground under tbe heels of their tyrannical masters, ringing be neath the lash great was the injustice under which tbey suffered. But tbese soldiers of '61, living and dead, righted that wrong and justice prevailed. We cannot be blind to tbe fact that much injustice exists to-day. While human nature is what it is, tbere will always be cunning, schem ing, unscrupulous men, who will try to pervert or evade tbe laws of tbeir country for their own aggrandizement, and to tbe detriment of their fellow citizens. The remedy for tbis is a healthy moral public sentiment. If the majority are honest, eminently just, tbese evils cannot last. Tbe American people are often easy-going, long-suffering. Most of us are shocked at the revelations, so frequently made, of dishonesty and infidelity in public and private trusts. It often happens tbat men too readily condone these sins. I have seen men smile at the mention of "graft," and heard them say: "Well, we might do the same, were we in tbeir place." It ought not be so. Honest ancTjust ourselves, we ought not tolerate it in others. Our voices should ever be raisea ana our influence used that honesty may pre vail. Honest and just ourselves, we should never be afraid to smite witb tbe strong right arm of righteousness and probity every wrong no matter who may be its victim be he rich or poor, white or black, Jew or Gentile. How unselfish were those soldiers! They gave all that men bold dear. Tbey abandoned their work, their business. Tbey sundered tbe dearest ties of blood. Husbands left tbeir wives, lovers their sweethearts, sons tbeir parents; and tbey did this for love of country. What generosity! What unselfishness! Is it too much to expect that we imitate tbem in some degree? We are not called upon to make the sacrifices tbey did. But is it asking too much that we be public spirited? That we take an interest in tbe election of bonest and true men to office? Tbat we do what we can for the enforcement of laws tbat make for the good of all tbe people? We must not live for ourselves individually, seeking our private interests only, but as members of an organized society we should seek the public good. Ami my brother's keeper?

How 'worthy of imitation: Let us cleave to our country and its institu tions with all the ardor ot loving hearts. It is the noblest government ever founded by man. Governments exist to secure to tbe citizens all their rights; to keep order.

Beware of demagogues who take advantage of the people's discontent to awaken suspicions in their minds that the government is inadequate and un fit to cope with the problems confront ing modem society.
