The iirinuipal attraction of tho week j fur all jifrsons with a Httlc tiiiio cm their hands has been the force of iVTi ; loir, drivers which has lieen at work j breaking up the jam which formed last I week against the pier of the toll liridtre. i A few liieii were here previous to last Thursday hut the main u'ani; arrived I on that day as did also George Van i Dyke of Boston, president of the I.owe j Valley lumber company, v hich controls ! the loss. Nothing was done last Thurs- day on account of the height of the j water but a few men went to South j Vernon and removed n small jam which : had formed there. When the drivers ! beran work Memorial day mornintr the i loirs were riled so hijrh that a man could climb from he tup of t ie jam to the toll bridge wi.hout touching the pier. With the aid of six pairs of horses the loKinen began work at a point be tween the pier and the further abut ment and spent nearly nil of Friday, Saturday and Sunday pickinir out lors j sheiimrne one or two at a time. Ihere were no key logs ;n the jam at that point and it was simply a case of hard work aod little progress, liy .Monday afternoo a narrow passage way had been cut along the further shore about halfway up the jam and just before supper time a large mass of the logs moved down and till d the gap. Comparatively little piogress was made Tuesday but on Wednesday morning several large sections of the jam were moved and a clear waterway reached from the fur ther span of the engine house, divining the jam in- Irnderhil! to two t arts.

Mathison, rector of St. Michael's Episcopal church. The first of Mr. Mathison 's address was devoted to the consideration of the underlying principles which prompted the civil war and the far reaching principle in vindicat ion of which the war was fought. He paid feeling tribute to the bravery of the soldiers of the Confederate armies as well as those of the Union forces aud then turned the thoughts of his hear ers to some other considerations of what the war did for the country out side those which are obvious. On this theme he said in part : The civil war gave our people a lesson in the size and resources of our country. As the Northern youth whose knowl edge heretofore had been almost coter minous with the hills which bounded his narrow vail lay southward ing furnished us with the assurance that all was well, that all would come to a successful termination. He was the nation's strong man in our time of wailing and war, but methiuks if his assassination could arouse our people to a sense of the exceeding value of j principles of truth, to a sense of the. j great danger of error, I could liken I him to that judge of ancient Israel, j who, though in life, a terror to the 1'hilistines, yet in his death slew more than in his life. 1 believe, I say it I thoughtfully, I believe that the Divine i purpose in permitting the assassination '. ! of our president was to open our eyes ,lle ! tn llio f,,rf r.nneuo.n,.,,.,, r.1 arm und render us conscious of approach ing danger.

It will be yours lo inspire their tender minds with loftier zeal, with more devoted love for home and country.

And at the close of the long conflict, the bronzed young veteran went forth to hew out for himself a home in the more distant hut richer portions of our land and with sword turned into ploughshare, with the same persisten cy and patience learned at the fore front of the battle, now in the van guard of civilization's hosts took large part in the subduing of the prairie states. The civil war was prolific in great, men. It all but created them. Tre mendous responsibilities sobered, and vast opportunities inspired to success ful effort, lirant, our greatest com manding general, was so produced. Men rose from the ranks with astound ing rapidity. The best men, urged to it by the crisis, offered themselves for every place. All aristocracy save that of individual merit passed away. Henceforth through every department of our life the nobility of prompt and competent manhood was recognized and to this recognition is due the greatness of this present American people. We are gathered here to think of, and do honor to the memory of the de parted. Vast in their number are they, and glorious achievements. The great thing is not the dead but the things for which they fought and died, those eternal principles of right and justice which alone form the foun dation stones of a permanent and ben eticient government. Those martyred dead stand as emphatic witness to the dangers that threaten from mistaken principles of right and justice. And you, who have looked upon the car nage of the oft fought field, I now, bet ter than 1 can emphasize, the fatal character of judgment's errors. You have seen men tight harder, endure longer and suffer more for a principle, mistaken though that principle may be than did ever selfishness or personal ambition. In view of this is the labor of theG. A. K. finished '! To ask that is but to en quire. Is our land no longer menaced by false theories of right? Is that splendid prestige and influence so fair ly won now no longer to be needed, and the driveling old man be com pelled to tell only of what he has in times gone by accomplished? Or is a glorious past to prove but an excuse for useless, an idle and discredited fu ture. No. mv verv eveballs seem to contract with pain at such a sorrowful prospect. hy many dangers. Greed and spite give evidence of their mighty workings in the struggle that goes on ceaseless ly twixt capital and labor. Fven into our peaceful distant village comes evi dence of the exactions of the mighty trusts and industrial combinations. Aud who is there can forget that since we last assembled the champion of a political heresy has lifted himself in to prominence in our midst. That no choicer blood has ever yet flowed upon American soil than that which fell be fore the onset of the hosts,of anarchy, led by the hated C'zolgosz. That blood red crown of martvrdom upon the brow of our late president warns of a con flict which is mighty though hidden. How his face ever stands before us calm and confident whatever hap pened ! The verv embodiment of good order and wise government: the incar nation of self control and conscious pow er: the representative of the dignity and majesty of the "government by the people afld for the people. " And the more he becomes in the imagina tion representative of our nation, the more does his fall stand as a warning of a fearful danger to that cation. President JlcKinlev led us through a critical period. During many an anx ious day bis calm and steadfast bear- ' ! through many future generations. J hus, after the last cainnhre ha3 been extinguished, and we no more see re minders in crippled limbs and pallid fact's, of the conflict long gone by, your influence will remain lingering like a holy benediction Over the land of your devotion, gathering but re newed youthfulness and strength with time's passage, until more aud more we shall feel and appreciate that the name Grand Army of the Republic comes not from the excess of numbers, but the character of its very rank and file. Then will tradition tell to future ages of its noble character even to its last survivurs, and through periods when political life seems sinking low, and all men's minds are fixed on gain, the remembrance of what our fathers were and what they wrought, will speak and tell to us that there is more in life than self and its own interests. The recollection of names like Grant and Sherman, Meade and Sheridan and the thousands upon thousands more, who, each according to his ability, offered himself, will prove fit subjects for our emulation. From the hard fought fields . traveled dav afler ; of Gettysburg, Antietam, and the like and westward, his ; we learn the priceless lesson of the in valuable character of truth. Comrades.
