last Monday, welcoming t hp members
of (he Tenth IViikmj lvani Volunteers
back to their homet:
OOVEHNOR SSTiiXK AMI MY FKI.IiOW
L am glad to participate with the
families, friend, and fellow citizens of
th Tenth Pennsylvania Volunteers in
this glad reuuion.
"You have earned the plaudits, not
alone of the people of Penu-ylvaiiia,
but of the whole nation. Your return
has beeu the signal fur a great demon
stratiou of iopular regard from your
landing in the Golden Gate on the
Pacific to your home coming, aud here
you hnd a warmth of welcome aud a
greetiug from joyous hearts which tell
better than words the estimate of your
countrymen and their high apprecia
tion of the services you have rendered
the country. You made secure aud
permanent the victory of Dewey. You
aided new glory to American arms.
You and your brave comrades engaged
on other fields of conflict have enlarged
the map of the Lnited States aud ex
tended the jurisdiction of Americau
"But while we share in the joy that
is yours, there remain with us softened
and hallowed memories of thoe who
went forth with you, not found in your
rnks to-day. Your noble Colouel, de
voted to hix men, lieloved by his com
mand, aud respected by his superior of
ficers, gave his life to his country, with
many others of his comrades. The Na
tion sorrows with the bereaved. Those
heroes died for their eountr-, aud there
is no nobler death.
"Our troops represented the courage
aud conscience, the purpose aud patriot
ism, of their country. Whether in
Cuba, Porto Rico, or the Philippines, -j
or at home awaiting orders, they did
their full duty, aud all sought the
post of greatest peril. They never fal
tered. The Eighth Army Corns in the
Philippines have made a proud and
exceptional record. Privileged to be
mustered out in April, wheu the rati
fications of the Treaty of Peace were
exchanged, they did not claim the
privilege they declined it, they vol
untarily remained in the service and
declared their purpose to stay until
their places could be filled bv new
levies, and longer if the Government
needed them. Their service and they
understood it was not to be in camp
or garrison, free frcm danger, tut on
the battle line, where exposure and
leath confronted them aud where both
have exacted their victims.
"They did not stack arms. They did
not run away. They were not serving
the Insurgents in the Philippines or
their sympathizers at home They
had no part or patience with the men,
few in number, happily, who would
have rejoiced to have seen them lay
down their arms in the presence of an
enemy whom they have just emanci
pated from Spanish rule and who
should have been our firmest friends
They furnished au example of devo
tion and sacrifice which will brighten
the glorious record of American valor.
They have seeured not alone the grati
tude of the Government and the peo
ple, but for themselves aud their de
scendants in imperishable distinction.
They may not fully appreciate, and the
country may not, the heroism of their
conduct and its important support to
the GovernmenL I think I do, aud so
I am here to express it.
"The mighty army of Volunteers and
Regulars, numlering over two hundred
and fifty thousand, which last year
responded to the call of the Govern
ment with an alacrity without prece
dent or parallel, by the terms of their
enlistment, were to be mustered out,
with all of the Regulars above twenty-
seveu thousand, when peace with Spain
was effected. Peace brought us the
Philippines by treaty cession from
Spain. The Smate of the LTnited States
ratified the treaty. Every step taken
was in obedience to the requirements
of the Constitution. It became our ter
ritory and is ours as much as the
Louisiana purchase, or Texas, or
Alaska. A body of Insurgents, in no
sense representing the sentiment of the
people of tlie islands, dispjted our
lawful authority, and eveu before the
ratification of the treaty by the Amer-
can Senate were attacking the very
forces who fought for and secured their
"This was the situation in April,
'M, thedatt jof the exchange of rati
fications, with only twenty-seven thou
sand Regulars subject to the unques
tioned direction of the Executive, and
thty, for the most part, on duty in Cuba
and Porto Rico or invalided at home
after their severe campaign in the
tropics. Even had they been availa
ble, it would have required months to
transport them to the Fuuipplues.
Practically a new army had to be
created. These loyal Voluuteers in the
Philippines said: . 'We will stay until
the Government can organize an army
at home and transjort it to the seat of
hostilities.' They did stay, cheerfully,
uncomplainingly, patriotically. They
suffered aud sacrificed; they fought aud
fell; tbey drove l ack and punished the
Rebels who resisted Federal authority,
and, who, with force, attacked the sov
ereignty of the United States in its
newly-acquired territory. ithout
tbem tLen and there, we would have
been practically helpless on land; our
flag would have bad its first stain, and
the American name its first ignominy.
The brilliant victories of the Army and
Navy in the Ray and City of Manila
would have been won in vain; our ob
ligations to civilization would have re
mained temporarily unperformed;
chaos would have reigned, and what
ever government there was would have
been by the will of one man, and not
by the consent of the governed.
"Who refused to sound the retreat?
Who stood in the breach when others
weakened? Who resisted the sugges
tion of the unpatriotic that they should
coma borne ? Let me call the roll of
the regiments and battalions that de
serve to be perpetuated in the Nation's
annals. Their action was not asud
den impulse under excitement, but a
deliberate determination to sustain, at
the cost of life if need be, the honor of
their Government and the authority of
Its flag: First California, California
Artillery, First Colorado, First Idaho,
Fifty-first Iowa, Twentieth Kansas,
Thirteenth Minnesota, First Montana,
First Nebraska, First North Dakota,
Nevada Cavalry, Hecond Oregon, Tenth
Pennsylvania, First South Dakota,
First Tennessee, I' tali Artillery, First
Washington, First Wyoming, Wyom
ing Battery. To them must be added
about four thousand enlisted men of
the Regular Army, who were entitled
to their discharge under the Peace
Proclamation of April 1S09, the
greater portion of whom participated in
the engagements of the Eighth Cors
aud are still performing arduous ser
vices in the field.
"Nor must the Navy be forgotten.
Sixty-five devoted sailors participated
in the engagement of May 1st In Ma
nila Bay whose terms of service had
previously expired, continuing on duty
quite a year after that action.
"For these men of the Army and
Navy we have only honor aud grati
tude. "The world will never kuow the re
straint of our soldiers theirself control
under the most exasperating condi
tions. For weeks subjected to the iu-
sults and duplicity of the Insurgeut
leaders, they preserved the status quo,
remembering that they were under an
order from their Government to sacred
ly observe the terms of the protocol in
letter aud spirit aud avoid all conflict.
except in defense, ending the negotia
tions of the Treaty of Peace. They
were not the aggressors. They did not
begin hostilities against the Insurgents
pending the ratification of the Treaty
of Peace in the Senate, great as was
their justification, because their orders
from. Washington forbade it I take
all the responsibility for that direction.
Otis only executed the order of his Gov
ernment, and the soldiers, under great
provocation to strike back, obeyed.
Until the Treaty was ratified we had no
authority beyond Manila City, bay aud
harbor. We then had no other title to
defend, no authority beyond that to
maintain. Spain was still iu possession
of the remainder of the Archipelago.
Spain had sued for peac. The truce
aud Tnaty were not concluded. The
first blow was struck by the Insurgents.
Our kindness was reciprocated with
cruelty, our mercy with a Mauser. The
flag of truce was invoked ouly to be
dishonored. Our soldiers were shot
down when ministering to the wound
ed Philippines. Our humanity was in
terpreted as weakness, our forbearance
as cowardice. They assailed our sov
ereignty, and there will be no useless
parley no pause until the insurrec
tion is suppressed and American au
thority is acknowledged aud establish
ed. The misguided followers in rebell
ion have ouly our charity aud pity. As
to the cruel leaders who have needlessly
sacrificed the lives of thousands of their
people, at the cost of some of our best
blood, for the gratification of their own
ambitious designs, I will leave to oth
ers the ungracious task of justification
"Every one of the noble men of the
Regulars or Volunteers, soldiers or sea
men, who thus sigually served tbeir
country iu its extremity deserves .he
8ecial recognition of Congress, and it
will be to me an unfeigned pleasure to
recommend for each of them a sptc.al
medal of honor.
"While we give you hail aud greeting
from overflowing hearts, we do not for
get the brave men who remain and
those who have gone forward to take
your places, and those other brave men
who have so promptly volunteered,
crowding each other to go to the front,
to carry forward to successful comple
tion the work you so nobly began. Our
prayers go with them, and more men
and munitions, if required, for the
speedy suppression of the rebellion,
the establishment of peace and tran
quillity, aud a government under the
undisputed sovereignty of the United
States a government which will do
justice to all, and at once encourage the
b"st efforts and aspirations of these dis
tant people and the highest develop
ment of their rich and fertile lands.
"The Government to which you gave
your loyalty welcomes you to your
homes. With no blot or stain upon
your record, the story of your unselfish
services to country and to civilization
will be to the men who take your places
at the front and on the firing line and
to future generations an example of
patriotism and an inspiration to duty."

WORDS OF A WARRIOR.
Lieut. Col. James . Barnett Ac
cepts Gifts on Behalf of the
Officers of ths Tenth
From the Pltbiburg Times, Auk. 10.
Lieut, Col. Barnett, on behalf of the
officers of the regiment accepted the
swords for the officers and the loving
cup for Chaplain Hunter. His appear
ance was the signal for prolonged ap
plause. Lieut, Col. Barnett spoke as
"Citizens of Western Pennsylvania
On behalf of the oftUvrs of the Tenth
regimeut, I thank you for the honor
conferred upon us, and for the beauti
ful gifts thit you have this day be
stowed. They will be cherished as
souveuirs of this occasion, and iu years
to come will be pointed to with ever
increasing pride. We accept them, uot
as evidences of our own merit, but as a
kindly expression of interest in tin
who had the honor to represent this
Commonwealth in far-offlands. They
will recall to us in days to come the
trials and triumphs passed through,
and will inspire us with courage as we
resume the duties of our common citi
zenship. We do not come home to
pose as heroes, for we believe that the
sober, industrious, law-abiding citizen
is the brightest jewel iu the diadem of
the State aud of the Nation. (Ap
plause.) All of us, alas, are not here
to receive this distinguishing mark of
your consideration. The best one of us
all, the one whose presence would adorn
this occasion the most, is missing. Of
all the sad occasions of our memorable
journey, the one that causd the most
profound and heartfelt grief was the
death of Colonel Hawkins. He was
universally respected and loved, be
cause he was fair, honorable aud brave.
No more superb or gallant soldier ever
unsheathed a sword. A striking in
stance of bis loyalty to duty and of his
fearlessness of death, is shown by the
remark made by him to the surgeon,
who, in the latter part of April last,
told him of the maliguant nature of
his disease, and advised him to go
home. He received the terrible mes
sage in silence for a few moments, and
then said, "The fathers aud mothers of
my boys seut their sons out with me,
aud they expect me to stay with them
and to come borne with them and I will
stay" and he did stay. He died on the
sun-kissed Pacific, far from the tender
ministrations of bis own household,
but surrounded by the boys who oc
cupied the next place to them in his
TKMiEK TKIBITKTO HAWKINS.
"The annals of hi.ry do not reeite
a more patriotic life or more sublime
death than that of Col. Alexander L.
Hawkins. Our other comrades sleep be
neath the evergreen verdure of the
mystic East, unheedful of honors, un
mindful of the strugg'e above tbem.
No more for tbem the shock of battle
or the delights of home. But we be
lieve that, in the providence of God,
their lives have not been lost in vain,
and that iu the laud where they gave
up their lives, a new temple of liberty
shall arise, the home of a peaceful aud
prosperous people, owing its happiness
to the American Nation. Again I
thank you for the honor conferred upon
"After the attack upon Manila, there
came Hashing across land and sea, from
Occident to Orient, a message of con
gratulations from the President of the
United StaUs upon our glorious victory;
and it was a glorious victory. Besieged
iu Manila by a well armed and confi
dent army, threateued on every
hand by thousands of armed and secret
foes, we were subjected to humiliation.
abuse and scorn by the Filipinos, who
were inspired in their plans for our de
struction by rumors of assistance from
our own native land. It was a glorious
victory, uot only for the Americau Na
tion, but for every civilized nation hav
ing representatives in Luzon. Had we
beeu defeated, few of us would have
survived; all foreigners would have
been butchered, and the city of Ma
nila would have been a fiery hell on
earth. We tender our thanks this
day for the message then received, for
it brought right home to us the wel
come assurance that the government
of the United States, with all the
resources at its command, stood ready
and willing to aid and assist us.
SUPPORT OK THE PRESIDENT URUED.
"We did not discuss questions of
statesmanship during our campaign,
but, under the leadership of our colonel,
simply followed the flag. We believe
that a duty was laid upoi this govern
ment by One to whose purposes no Quite
b.-ing holds the key, aud that although
iu the fulfillment of this duty blocd
has been shed, and, in its further per
formance, still more may be shed, yet
the history of our own nation demon
strates that God sometimes sweeps the
path of progress with a bloody broom.
We believe that this is no time for the
discussion of policy, but that it is the
duty of every citizen loyal to his na
tion, and who desire to see the nations
of the earth respect tl e flag that we
adore, to support and uphold the bands
of the chief executive of this govern
ment in his efforts to establish, as
speedily as possible a triumphant peace.
We believe that no soldier will willing
ly consent that the flag should ever be
withdrawn from a land consecrated
with American blood.
"In dreams this hour has come to us;
but fancy, in her wildest flights never
pictured such a scene. We were Bur
prised by the welcome which spanned
the continent and grasped our hands
before we had set foot upon our native
soil; which accompanied us across the
continent and has culminated in the
unparalleled reception of to-day. We
have been appalled by the wealth of
demonstration the President of the
United States ; officers of military re
nown; the Governor of our Common
wealth; Governors and representatives
of sister States; the wonderful con
course of friends and neighbors who
have greeted us to-day and we have
felt as if we ought quietly to go back
and endeavor to do something more
worthy of it. Whatever we have done
has been due to the people of our State
and Union, and to our desire to keep
pace with our comrades. If any one
thinka those Western fellows can't
fight, let him go and try to keep up
PorUHT KOK PENNSYLVANIA'S HONOR.
"We kuow that there were thousands
upon thousands of valiautjmen in Penn
sylvania who would meet an emergen
cy equally as well as, or better than we;
we knew that our old comrades with
whom we had stood shoulder to
shoulder, looked to us to uphold tbeir
honor, as well as the gallant boys did
iu Cuba and Porto Rico; aud we felt
that in spirit they marched and fought
with us; we felt that those whom we
bad adored from youth, who had up
held Pennsylvania's honor on many
a battlefield ill defence of the Uuioo,
looked to us with solicitude lest Penn
sylvania might falter; aud the highest
honor that we have received upon re
turning to our native land, has been
tlie grasp of an old soldier of the 'Go's,
who saluted us as comrades.
"Behind us, like radiant angels of
light, were the historic traditions of
our State and I'uion. And, if we have
done aught to deserve your commend
ation or to justify iu the slightest de
gree the distinguishing favors shown
to us this day, to these, and these alone,
it must le ascrilied. Such were the
ideals of Co! Hawkins, who was the
most patriotic man I ever knew iu his
love of State and Union. Although
be is uot with us to-day, yet if bis
spirit beholds this occasion, he desires
that no grief for him shall mar the joy
of the present moment, aud, although
this home-coming has not been for him
aud his, yet he rejoices that at last his
boys, after many wanderings by laud
aud sea, have safely arrived at home.

"If we have deserved your praise, it
is but due to say that we are proud of
Pennsylvania. Crossing the coulinent,
we went into San Francisco, receiving
the most magnificent reception ever
given to a regiment entering that city.
As we marched along the crowded
streets, we saw men and women with
tears running down their cheeks, cry
ing, "God bless old Pennsylvania!"
The name itself was a passport to honor
and hospitality ; aud every w here among
our Western comrades we found the
deepest affection for the old Key
stone State. We, and you through us,
owe a deep det of gratitude to the
West for kiuduesses bestowed upon us.
As we journeyed homeward, I'tah,
Colorado and Nebraska invited us to
stop within their borders, aud it was a
bitter disappoiutnieut not to be able to
accept the hospitality of Omaha, that
magnificent city of the West, whose
keys we carry with us.
"I cannot close without a tribute to
that wonderful State which has made
the Union its debtor old California,
with thy vine-clad hills sloping west
ward 'o tie a; with thy valleys of gold
en grain, aud thy hills of golden sand,
with thy San Francisco, romance of
cities, enthroned behind the Ooldeu
Gate of Progress. While life shall last,
we will remember thy generous aud
unbounded hospitality, thy tender
ministrations to our sick and wouuded,
thy delicate and active sympathy aud
assistance in our bereavement."

During a visit to the army camp in
Savannah General Joseph Wheeler was
entertained by a party of Northern
men at the De Soto. When, in the
good humor of after dinner cigars, one
of the men said, laughingly:
"How is it, General, that the sleepy
farms of the South produce such whirl

There was no one to answer the bell,
so Mrs. Cassidy went herself.
"Why, Cela Bethune! I am so glad
to see you !" she cried, in greeting her
"Yes, I wanted to see you," the girl
returned, fervently, as they kissed each
other. "I was out for a spin, aud came
this way. How do you like
my new suit?"
"I like it. It looks jjst lovely on
'Isn't the skirt too short?"
"Not a bit. You want it short."
"But not too short," insisted the girl.
I -as so afraid it would be too short.
Some look -rfectly slux-king."
"I know. But yours isn't a bit too
short. Come in this way, where we
"Oh, but I mustn't slay.
"I thought you wanted to see me?"
Cela's exercise had heightened the
color in her pretty face, but a blush in
creased it still more as Mrs. Cassidy re
called those first words.
Cela covered her confusion with more
talk in regard to her new gow n aud the
trials she had undergone iu having it
cut ami fitted. Even as she spoke Mrs.
Cassidy seemed forced to take the girl's
measure iu certain other lights.
How old are you, Cela?" she asked,
"Why, Laura Cassidy! What a ques
tion! Do you think I'm going to tell ?
"You will be getting married liefore
"Oh, my goodue! I'm never going
to marry. But I've had a projiosa!,"
"And you've said 'Yes?' I'm so glad.
How lovely of you to come aud tell me
all about it"
Mrs. Cassidy was about to fold the
girl iu her anus again, but Cela waved
"Ob, dear, no! And what's more, I
am not going to say 'Yes.' Oh, I don't
kuow what I'm going to say. How do
you decile about such things? You
had to, once, not long ago. Tell me.
That's what I came for."
A note of tremulous despair hovered
about her voice.
"It's easy. You must know whether
you love Norman Ford or noL"
"Norman Ford! How did you guess
"Why, who else could it be?"
"He isn't the only young
Cela retorted, with a touch of
Mrs. Cassidy gave tone to a rich
laugh. She was in love with the mo
ment. Cela was mindful only of tho
"You see, I would have to leave pap
aud go and live with N Mr. Ford,
I've only known Lim a few months a.
year or two at most and I've known
papa all my life."
Mrs. Cassidy's laugh was very pro
voking. Cela was vexed.
"Oh, you know what I mean. What
makes you behave so? I thought you
would help me."
"And so I will. You must stay witU
meaweek. S-nd for your things. You
must think it over. A matter of thist
kind can't be decided ut once."
"That's just what I told Norman!"
said the girl, flushing joyously. "It's
so kind of you to help me. I knew
you would. I want to talk it all over
with you. You see, I dou't want to
make any mistake."
And talk it over they did, every day,
almost every hour, for a week.
"It will be better for you not to see
Mr. Ford until you c n give him a defi
nite answer," her friend had said, and
Celia acquiesced in the w isdom of this.
"Of course, I can't choose for you. I
can only help yrni to know your own
"How did you rrr choose?" Cela
asked, envious of fcr friend's ability.
"It was easy. I just knew."
"That's it. Vcm always know every
thing, and I D iwkoow anything."
Later, when Mrs. Cassidy questioned
her, Cela said, "In the morning I'm all
for papa. Toe i it ms just as clear
as can be wliat I shall do. But toward
evening, about the time Nor Mr. Ford
usually coire," the red poured into
Cela's checks, "why, I'm all at sea
"But you don't really have to choose
between them. You just "
"Oh, yes, I do!" interrupted Cela,
very positively. "It can never 1 the
same. It will all be different. I should
have to give up papa, and I shall most
certainly say 'No.'
This was in the morning.
In the afternoon Mrs. Cassidy and
Cela went for a spin through the parks
on tbeir wheels.
"Oh, Mr. Ford and I have had such
lovely rides on his tandem!" Cela said,
rapturously. "I wish. I had written
him a note telling where I am staying.
I really don't think there would be any
harm in his coming, and he might help
me to a decision. It really seems as if
U would be heartless to say 'No,' for he
says be thinks everything of me. You
just ought to hear him! And, as you
say, I haven't really got to give papa
up. He might come and live with us.
Anyway, I dild see him every day
almost as much as I do now, for he is
away all day at the office. But it did
seem so terrible at first!"
Iu the morcinir the terror of it all re-
turned, made worse by a feeling that a
decision must be reached that' day, for
it was the last of her stay with her
When Mrs. Cassidy joiued Cela her
face was beaming with a plan which
she had thought out
"I've a way, Cela, for you to know
your owti mind."
"Ob, what is it r
"Listen! Tom says that every even
ing Mr. Ford and your father walk
down Columbia avenue together on
tbeir way from town. At Madison
street they separate; your father goes
west to take the Third street cars. Now
this is my plan: This afternoon, on
your way borne, you rmle your wheel
slowly down the aven 0e just back of
the two men. But doa't let tbem see

whom you decide upon. Ride your
wheel iust as slowlv as you can, but
you mast not stop or fall off."
"Yes," said Cela.
"And if, at the very last, yni can't
decide, leave it all to the wheel."
"Leave it to the wheel?" Cela did
"Yes. Haven't you evei noticed your
wheel act independent of yourself?
TbiU is, turn this way or that without
your consciously making it?"
"It did that w hen I was learning to

does it, I siiptiose. You know, subcon
sciousness is like clairvoyance aud sec

things w liii li kuow all about the past
Cela shud lered.
"I am afraid of such things."
"But not of subconsciousness. To 1
afraid of that would lie like being afraid
of one's own soul."
"Well, what then ?" eagerly.
"Why, if it is best that you should
accept Mr. Ford, your wheel will keep
straight ahead down Columbia avenue
after him. But if you really ought to
refuse him it will turu witlxsit your
really making it, down the street that
your father takes."
"I have read that the wheel taught
one decision," Cela said. "But I never
knew just how."
"Well, that's how," said Mrs. Cassi-
The sun had disappeared tit-hind the

keeping a sharp lookout upon the walk
