He Was Dead.
The English papers tell this story of an
niident In a revision court:
A certain person who llgurcil on the
icglstcr was objected to by one of tbu
agents on tho ground that bo was dead.
The revising barrister declined to ac
cept tho assurance, however, and de
manded coneliihlvo testimony oa tho
Thereupon tho agent of tho other sliio
joso and gave conoboratlvo evldouru as
in tho decease of tho gentleman In ipics
tlon. "And pray, sir, b'ow do you know tho
man's dead?" demanded thu barrister.
"Well," was tlm reply, "I don't know.
It's very difficult to prove."
"As I suspected," returned tho Inito
lMi'i IhU-i1. "You don't know whether he's
dead ur not."
The barrister glanced triumphantly
around tho court. Ills expression grad
ually underwent a change as the witness
"l was saying, sir, that I don't know
whether ho is dead or not, but I do know
this they burled him about a month uno

Concluded from Page 1,
Interests or tho lonor of tho country are
threatened, when the national conscience
Is aroused, an army will spring from tho
soil, so vast, so docile, so Intelligent, so
formidable, that It need not fear to try
conclusions with any army on the fnco
of the earth.
Hut that was only half the Wsou; the
other half was equally Important that
when thnt eltlr.cn army has done Its work,
It makes no claim, It expels no conditions
of dlshnndmetit, but melts away Into the
vaster body of the nation, as tho loam
crested sunlit wave melts buck Into the
profound depths of the ocean. The great
Most of HO." ceased to exist as an armed
force: but In every town and hamlet of
the land It lived as a part of thu body
politic a nucleus everywhere of courage,
patriotism, and solf-rnorlllce. This was
a now product the republic: might proudly
show to the wnild. saying, "These be the
pcneenble heroes t breed from Great
There were many brilliant deeds dono
In the war that resulted In endurlnir fame
to fortunate individual soldiers; but tho
dlsbamlment of that army, Ihmhed with
victory and Idolized by the country, re
Heeled honor upon all our race, a glory
In which Individual claims are lost, like
atoms of cloud In the cilmson splendor
of a stormy sunset.
A Noble Record.
For four years you showed yourselves
good soldiers equal to the best the world
had seen. Kor thirty-seven years you
have been good citizens; and who shall
say In which capacity jou have wrought
nest for tho republic? Burn year you
eomo together with thinned ranks but un
diminished spirit to feed anew the un
dying llame upon the altar of patriotism.
I should not have said your ranks nro
thinned, for tho place of each fallen
comrade Is lilted with a loving memory.
And who can ever forget the faces which
never bad a chance to grow old tho
brave young warriors who fell in battle
and gained tho prize of Immortal youth?
For them there Is no shadow of struggle
or poverty; no trouble of gray hairs or
falling strength: no euro of the present
nor fear of the future. Tho unfading
light of morning Is forever In their eyes;
the blessing of a grateful national hal
lows their names. AVe salute them with
loving tears, from which tho bitterness Is
gone. We hear their young voices In the
clear notes of the bugle and the murmur
of tho fluttcilng flags. Our answering
hearts cry, "Hail and farewell, young
comrades, till we meet again!"
Our fathers ordained that in this repub
lic there should bo no distinctions; but
human nature Is stronger than laws, and
nothing can prevent this people from
showing honor to all who have deserved
well of tho country. TCvery man who has
borne arms with credit has earned and Is
sure to receive a special measure of re
gard. And It is our peculiar privilege to
remember that our armies and navies,
regular and volunteer, have always boon
worthy of esteem. In distant genera
tions, under different flags In conflicts
great and small, by land and by sea, they
have always borne their part nobly. Tho
men who fought at l.oulMmrg beneath the
meteor Hag of Kngland; tho men who
stood with Washington at Yorktmvnj
with Lincoln In the Rlaek Hawk war;
with Crocket In the Alamo: with Taylor
at Buena Vista: with Grant at Vlcks
burg: and with I.ee at Appomattox wore
of the stuff of which not only soldiers,
but citizens, were made. And In our
own time the young men who stormed the
bill of San Juan, and have borne our Hag
with such honor to the forbidden city of
Pekln and the jungles of laizon, have
shown that their progenitors bred inn-.
The men of today are as good Americans
as the men of yesterday, and tho oien of
tomorrow, with God's blessing, will bo
tho same. The dominant characteristic
of every American army that has ever
stepped to tho tap of a drum has boon
valor and humanity. They have In tho
long run carried nothing but good to any
land they have occupied. As our com
rndo McKlnloy of blessed memory said:
"The flag has never floated over "any re
gion but In benediction."
By order of tho president of the 1'nlteil
Stntes, thee historic grounds, the prop
erty of the nation, are during this en
campment dedicated to your use. They
will receive from your presence an added
sacredness and value. In tho hlslorv of
the twentieth century, which is opening
with such brilliant promise, not tho least
luminous pngo will treat of this meeting
of the Grand Army of the Republic sol
diers and citizens whom the republic de
lights to honor.
When the cheers which succeeded
Mr. Hay's speech had subsided, General
Ell Torrance, commander-in-chief of
the Grand Army, was Introduced to
respond to the words of welcome. '
He spoke warmly in appreciation of
the reception given himself and his
comrades, which had been, he said, all
that they could expect. Referring to
the fact that the ex-soldlers of 1SGI had
disappointed the predictions of Europ
ean publicists that they would be a
menace to the peace of the country, he
declared that there never had been the
"Wo were good soldiers because we
had been good citizens," ho said, "We
had been made good citizens at our
own firesides and there never has been
the least reason to anticipate harm to
our national institutions because of our
Ho closed with an expression of the
desire of tho old soldiers for the pros
perity and perpetuity of the republic.
.Secretary Moody was next Intro
duced. He spoke for Secretary Hoot,
who was detained by oflielal business,
Mr. Moody expressed regret that the
shallowness of the Potomac bad pre
vented some of the war vessels coming
to Washington for the inspection of the
old soldiers, and then dwelt for a few
moments of the Inspiration that the
example of heroes of J8GI had been to
tho sailors of the present day. He said
that Captain Clarke, of the Oregon,
had told the men under his command
when at Hahla, lirazil, that they might
meet the Spanish fleet and that after
reminding the men nf the strength of
tho opposing fleet, bad said to them,
"If wo do meet it, It will not look so
well." Captain Clarke had related this
Incident to him and had added;
"I was with Kurragut, you know."
The secretary said he had asked Ad
miral Dewey how he had felt In con
teinplating the mines and torpedoes lit
Manila Hay tho night before attacking
the Spanish Meet In the harbor of that
city, and that the admiral's reply was
he simply had asked himself what
Farragut would have done if confront
ed with similar conditions, Tho secre
tary concluded that men Inspired by
such traditions us these never could
turn their back on the flag.
Governor Hllss, of Michigan, spoke
very briefly. Mr, H, F. Bingham, com
mander of tho Department of tho Po
tomac, delivered the welcoming address
on behalf of the local Grand Army, and
was followed by a few words of thanks
to all by Colonel MoElroy for their as
sistance In rendering the occasion so
A tine specimen of the national colors
was unfurled and with the firing of the
national salute of 21 suns, the exercises
closed. The music for the occasion was
supplied by the George y. Cook drum
corps, of Denver, and the military bund
stationed at Fort Meyer, both of which
played a number of patriotic airs,
which the audience applauded liber

"It Is not every county which can present such a showing In tho nmn
agoment of Its finances as can Lackawanna this year; but then It Is not
every county which can boast of commissioners who not only venture to cut
the rate of taxation squarely In half, but who actually follow that up by
showing a clean reduction of outstanding Indebtedness from $310,000 to $160,
000, or well nigh GO per cent. Tho only possible inference from such an ex
hibit Is that Commissioners Frans;, Flnnaghan and Hulstend, Instead of In
dulging In loud talk, have been quietly sawing wood. And from what I
have seen of their methods, this is precisely the milk In the cocoauut. They
are business men first and politicians afterward. And the outcome of their
labors would seem to clinch the contention that this Is tho order which
taxpayers most need," ,
In the Interest of the people of this county permit me to call your attention to the fact that in
addition to standing resolutely for honest government I have been an aggressive and persistent
fighter for improvement on the county roads, bridges und other affairs under the jurisdiction of the
County Commissioner and a watchful guardian of the county's finances.
I have not the means to hire carriages on election day and have no committeemen to extoli
my virtues from the street corners, but I do go before you as a plain, honest citizen, who promises,
it elected, his best service, and one who can point to his past record as a guarantee of what may
be expected of me In the future.
Wall Street Beview.
New York, Oct. 0. Today's reactionary
stock market was typical of a well or
dered liquidation. The bears wero alert
and aggressive all day to take away the
market from the long Interests, but thoy
showed their fear of overrunning thu
market by the frequency with which they
bought to cover their short contracts.
This operation caused a number of
checks to the downwaid course of prices
iukI of rallied reaching lrom 1 to 2 points
In a. few stocks. Heading was twice lifted
above last week's level by these rallies
and rumor was busy In Wall street all
day regarding tho next developments in
the coal strike situation. Tho continued
manifestation of Interest In the subject
by President Roosevelt gave rise to tho
expectation of new steps to be taken by
him. Thoro wore many inconsistent re
ports as to tho Intentions of Governor
Stone of Pennsylvania concerning tho
use of military. Tho anthracite group
was Inclined to resist tho reactionary ten
dency on this account. St. Paul also
madu a visible resistance to tho decline
and shared In tho occasional rallies. The
determination of the stockholders to is
sue new stock to the extent of J25.000.O00
and the subscription rights thus implied
helped the stock. It will be seen that nei
ther of these stocks entirely escaped the
prevailing pressure to sell, which carried
the general list down from 1 to over 3
points with a largo sprinkling of 4 point
losses. There were some heavy declines
in tho inactive list, Wells Fargo and
Vnlted States Express dropping fifteen
points, New York Air Brake 10, North
western nearly 9, Lackawanna V and
Brooklyn Union Gas anil Rock Island 0
each. Some of the losses wore curtailed
by the rally which was In progress at tho
close o ftho market duo to covering by
shorts. Total sales today, 970.300 shares.
Bonds were weak but In less degree than
stocks. Total sales par value, $3,903,000.
United States 3s coupon advanced Vs per
cent, on the last call. Sterling continued
to advance today in spito of tho renewed
stringency of money here and easlei
money abroad, showing the hopelessness
if immediate relief by gold Imports.
