DollTotoil Docoratl ju Day , M y 3'jtli. '
Mr. Commander and comrades of
my father , comrades of the Sprnish
American war , ladies of the Wom
en's Relief Corps , ladies and gen.
tloincn : At the request of your
Commander and my comrades in
the Spanish-American war , 1 shall
try in n brief manner to respond
for those who offered their services
in this war. Wo are deeply sousi
bio of the courtesy you have so
kindly extended to us in the mem
orial oxircises this year , and wo
thank you most cordially. We fool
it nn honor to associate ourselves
with you on this solemn occasion ,
and wo hope that our conduct has
boon such as to impress upon you
that wo fool the solemnity of the
occasion and feel the same interest
in the beautiful and appropriate
ceremonies that you fool. Recent
events have given us a deeper in
terest in memorial day services
than it was possible for us to fool
before. I have over felt a deep
and kindly regard for the soldiers
of the oivil war , more especially so ,
perhaps , as my father was a soldier
who served through most of the
oivil war ; born in the south , edu
cated in the south and the son of a
slave holder , ho responded to the
call of his country like you , and
contributed his humble help like a
brave soldier in the ranks that the
Union should not bo severed. I
am proud to bo the son of a veteran
and to associate myself with veter
ans of that great struggle. Happily
the bitterness of that memorable
struggle has passed away , and north
and south can enjoy together the
blessings of the fruits of your for
titude and courage. You wore
merciful to your vanquished enemy
and today ho is grateful for the
flog you gava him. The fruiti of
your achievements will bless gen
erations unborn , and enlighten peoples
ples now groping iu darkness in
uiatani lands. vviulo the sacrifice
was terrible , the results arc worth
the cost , and you must feel a deep
pride and satisfaction in knowing
that you did your duty as soldiers ,
giving to humanity the blessed
heritage of this great republic. Wo
younger soldier * honor you tor it ,
and it may bo 001 soling to you to
fool that in
your declining yoara
you have the sympathy of thobo
who too responded to their coun
try's call , and can appreciate some
thing of the hardships.
It must have boon gratifyinc to
you to BOO America's young sous
respond so promptly t5 the call of
President MoKinloy , as you res
ponded to the call of the greatest
patriot and ono of the noblest men
that over lived , Abrahrm Lincoln.
It nas but a sign of the permanency
of our institutions and of the struc
ture you built.
Wo had , in this war , a different
enemy to fight. You fought Am
ericans and wo fought Spaniards.
I believe no soldier lights as well
as the American. Our soldiers bore
their hardships uncomplainingly
and bravely , and many of them in
u distant land. The politicians
seem to have done the complaining.
Though thousands of miles away ,
whore news was old before getting
to us , there soomvd to bo universal
confidence in the government at
homo. If some other nation should
take a hand , as it looked to us that
they might , wo felt that time was
a firm and steady hand on the
throttle at Washington that would
leave nothing undone which this
mighty nation oould do to protect
her soldiers iu a distant clime. The
war in which you engaged made
the Union ono and inseparable.
This war has resulted in the oxtou-
sion of the civilizing influences of
this great Christian nation to some
of the most unfortunate people * on
the face of the earth. The result
will bo for the betterment of man *
kind , and the future generations
will bless the people who fought
thin war ; bless them tor the right
we gave them to enjoy life , liberty
and the right to earn their bread
by honest toil , and enjoy the fruits
of their labor. I sincerely hope
that no political party will attempt
to make politics out of this war
and its inevitable results. It is
encouraging , however , to note the
unanimity with which people of all
political parties have loyally sup *
ported the president and congress
in the prosecution of the war , and
I am proud that Nebraska has been
in the fore front of those support
ers. Abraham Lincoln , supported
by you , struck the shackles from
four raillionu ol slaves. William
Jlolunley , supported by your sous ,
has struck the shackles from more
than twice four millions of human
souls , in the Philippine archipelago
alone , guaranteeing to them lifo ,
liberty , and the pursuit of happi
The difference between the two
conditions acorns to tno to bo that
the men and women that you freed
oould at once realize what had boon
done for them , whilt iu this instance
the freodmou seem for the time tin-
grateful , or do not appreciate what
has actually been done for them.
Many of you old veterans will live
to hoar the heartfelt thanks of FilU
pmpa and Cubans extended to this
nation for freeing them from a
slavery no bettor than that of the
black man in thin country before
the civil war. The soldier who did
his duty in this war , I think , tuny
honenlly feel Umt he has aooom
plinhod much for humanity , results
that will be more far-roaohing than
many of un can now HOC , and I
believe for the good of the world.
The great good sense of the American
can people will carry those results
to n logical issue. I have no fear
that they will allow the results to
bo barren. Tlio stnrs and stripes
look as bright and seemed to mo to
testify to good government and
equal rights for all as much in the
Island of Luzon ai they do hero on
our native soil. They seemed to
bring now hopii to the peoples of
ell nations at Manila , hope of order ,
protection of life and properly ,
religious liberty , commerce and
trade , and a brighter prospect for
all in the different avenues of lifo.
Why should it not bo BO. Has this
not always boon true of the flag ?
Lot it ever bo so , that wherovnr the
stars and stripes float , there wo will
maintain an orderly condition of
affairs , oven though it costh us
precious lives to do so. I fool it
the most honorable event of my life
that I contributed a little to the
results and helped to fight for the
flag that you gave us , the flag whiuh
is emblematic of moro of human
rightc , moro of liberty , more of
progress , moro of civilization and
of more prosperous happy homes
than any other flag in the world. It
is an honor to tight under that flag ,
an honor than which there is none

The rain storm Saturday night
prevented many from attending the
Alumni meeting that had been in
vited. Notwithstanding the in
clemency of the weather , about
fifty assembled at the Woodmen
hull , whore the program was carried
out. Those present report having
enjoyed a very pleasant timo.
The tenth annual commencement
exercises of the city schools , hold
last Friday night at the north siilo
opera house , drew a large crowd ,
notwithstanding an admission fee
of ton cents was charged. The
program as previously published
was carried out , with but .one ex
ception. The stage was most
beautifully decorated for the occas
ion. The exercises wore opened
with an instrumental duet by Miss
Libbie Brenizer and Mrs. Maud
llnbbard , which was followed with
an invocation by Rev. Megan.
Dean Ilolcomb then rendered a
vocal solo The first speaker was
Miss Lena Caywood ; her subject
was "Will o'-tho Wisp , " which was
followed with a vocal solo by Mrs.
C. Q. Mayor. Madge Kay gave an
oration on the subject , "Night
Brings out the Store ; " next fol
lowed Winnie Joynor'b oration , on
"Trifles. " At this juncture Marie
Barrutt and Mamie Kaupp sang a
vocal duet. "Reunited" was the
aubjeot of Vorda Thorpe's oration
that was next rendered , which was
followed by Irene Reynolds , on
"The Master's Touch. " "Chains"
was Nannie Barrett's subject , which
was followed with a cornet solo , by
Frank Taylor. The presentation
of the diplomas was made by A. R.
Humphrey , who accompanied the
presentation with an able and ap
propriate spoooch. The members
of the class each not only had well
prepared and able orations , but they
delivered them well. The produo-
tions were each worthy of special
mention. The exercises were con
cluded with the benediction by Rev.
Quito an excitement prevailed
Monday iu the oity , occasioned by
the sudden disappearance of Win.
Anderson , who for the past four
years has boon boarding at Koolin's
restaurant. It was learned that on
Saturday afternoon ho drew his
money from the First National bank ,
amounting to $4,600 , because the
bank declined to allow him the rate
of interest he thought ho should
have. After breakfast Sunday
morning ho left without intimating
to any of the family that ho was
going to leave the oity. Ai he
failed to show up Sunday evening ,
and no clue of him oould be gained
Monday , it was feared that he bad
met with foul play. None of his
personal property was missing , and
it was feared that ho had mot with
foul play. A meTe would have
been inaugurated to look him up ,
but Tuesday morning word from
Ansloy stated that he had bought a
tiokot there for Grand Island. It
was then evident that he was fully
at himself , and that he was doubt-
leas looking for a satisfactory plaoe
to deposit his money , as the inter-
eat upon it is his only resource for
support , ho not being able to work. (
