MAINE DI5ADJT REST
Solemn Ceremonies Ooniluotcd at the Arlington National Cemetery , FORMER CAPTAIN IN COMMAND. President , Cabinet mid DUtliiRtiUlicd Army und Navy Oniurn rrciont Kx- crilnoi of fllnst Simple Character Chaplain of Naval Acu'domy mid Wrecked Ship Conduct ICnll lotta Kx- relies Taps Sounded. WASHINGTON , Dec. 29. Upon the windy heights of Arlington cemetery the Maine dead , brought from Ha vana by the battleship Texas , today were laid away In their final resting places with simple religious services and the Impressive honors of war , In the presence of the president , membora ' of his cabinet , oflicora'of the army and navy and other representatives of the government. A cabinet officer , surveying the flag-draped coftlns before the ceremony began , said : "The lives of those men cost Spain her colonies. " But there was no note of triumph In the grim scene today. With a touch of sadness and solemn gravity the nation Performed Its duty to the dead and gave Us defenders a Christian burial at home In soil hallowed by patriotic dead. A soft mantle of snow covered the earth , mufiled the horses' hoofs , the slow-turning carriage wheels and the tramp of soldiers and sailors as they approached the burial place. The site Is a commanding ono. In front of the broad Abosom of the Ice- fettered Potomac ; beyond the shaft of Washington the dome of the capl- tel and the sprawling city ; to the right , the choked embruzures of old Fort McPherson and between the graves of the heroic dead of Santiago ; to the left the stately mansion of Leo and to the rear through the vistas of snow-laden pines and cedars the si lent army of the patriotic dead of the civil war sleeping rank upon rank in their Irvst bivouac. The caskets in terred today ranged row and row. Over each was spread an American ensign upon which lay a wreath of smllax IOAVOS. Around the enclosures , shoul der to shoulder , the yellow of their coat linings forming a hand of color , wore drawn up the cavalry of Fort My.or ; to the right was a battalion of marines from the navy yard , with their spiked helmets and scarlet capos turned back ; to the left a detachment of jacklcs from the Texas , in navy blue ; In the flag-draped stand In the rear the president and his cabinet. Admiral Dewey , Major General Miles and a distinguished group of officers of the army and navy In their showy dress uniforms , while all around pressed the throng of people who had braved the snow biting cold to pay their last tribute to the dead. Among these wore many relatives and friends of those who had been lost in the dis aster. There was a tender appropriateness in the fact that Captain Slgsbeo. who was in command of the Maine when it was blown up , had charge of the cere monies In honor of his men and that Father Chldwlck , who was chaplain of the Maine , was there to perform the last rites. Three others who lived through that awful night at Havana harbor were at the side of the graves of their comrades Lieutenant Com mander Walnwrlght , who was execu tive officer of the Maine and who sunk the Pluton and the Furor at Santiago ; Lieutenant F. C. Bowers , who was as sistant engineer of the Maine , and Jeremiah Shea , a fireman on the Maine who was blown out of the stokehole of the ship through the debris , escaping uninjured most miraculously. Slowly , solemnly , the full marine band broke the deep hush , putting forth the sad , sweet strains of the dirge , "Safe In the Arms of Jesus , " and there were twitching of lips and wet eyes as Chaplain Clark of the na val academy at Annapolis came for ward and took his place under a can vas covered shelter In the open space in front of the dead. With the sounding of taps , the cere monies ended. The president and his party and other distinguished guests , the military and the crowds then wlth- 'drew. Before leaving Captains Slgs- bee introduced Jeremiah Shea to the president. When asked for an explan ation of the mystery of his escape by the president. Shea responded as ho did to a similar Inquiry from Father Chldwlck at the time of the disaster : "I don't know how I got out. I was blown out. I guess I must have been an armor-piercing projectile. " And thus , after twp years , the dead of the Maine have been brought home and In ground reserved for the nation's heroes , have been burled with full military honors and In the service of their faith. lliiiuicln ?
