Extend Federal Supervision.
Senator Sherman's proposition to bring
the Pullman Palace Car Company within
the field of Federal supervision was ill
timed in view of the strike at Chicago,
but it is a step in the right direction, and
it ought to be extended to include under
the supervision of the Interstate Commer
ce Commission all the agencies of inter
state commerce.
The commission and its statistician,
lfr. Henry C. Adams, have urged this
step in report after report, and now that
the Chicago strike has made clear the inti
mate relation between the railroads and
other auxiliary corporations engaged in
interstate commerce, Congress ought to
bring them all within the purview of the
interstate commerce act Water trans
port is now excluded. It should be in
cluded, reports required and rates by
water placed under the regulation of the
commisiion. Telegraph companies, long
distance telephones, interstate trolley
companies, express companies, palace car
companies, fast freight lines, terminal,
bridge, elevator and yard companies,
ought all to be included in the supervision
of the Federal power. Their rates ought
to be regulated by law and their reports
onght to be public. The telegraph com
panies, of which the largest, the Western
Union Telegraph, has a capital of SIOB,-
000,000, are engaged in interstate com
merce to a wider extent than railroads,
yet their affairs are concealed from the
public. Express companies employ near
fy 50,000 men and pay the railroads $-3,-
000,000 a year, yet they publish no re
ports and their rates are often grievously
uniust. The telephone companies, which
in 1890 had a capital of $72,34 1 , 7
earning of $16,404,583 and net of $5,260,-
212, are part of interstate commerce by
their connection with long distance work,
and are now free from all supervision. A
great swarm of subsidiary companies,
freight lines, abattor and elevator com
panies, terminal corporations, yard and
bridge companies and local express and
baggage companies are links in interstate
commerce, and ought to have their capi
tal, traffie and profits laid bare. Lastly,
the nalace car companies, of
two largest, the Pullman Ukes i»
000 a year and the Wagner $3,000,000,
ought to be brought within the interstate
commerce aet. , ~..
If Senator Sherman, instead of taking
np a small eorner of this field, would turn
his unrivaled ability and experience lo a
comprehensive measure extending 1 eaer
al supervision over and requiring Federal
statistics from all the agencies of inter
saate commeroe he would discharge a
great public service and silence onrrent
criticism on his action. —Phila. Press.
Coxgrbssmav T. W. Philiips, who has
been at his home in New Castle suffering
firom malaria, returned to Washington,
Tuesday. While at home Mr. Phillips de
voted a good deal of time considering the
labor problem, which he believes is the
greatest one now before the country. All
his life, in fact, Mr. Phillips has been in
vestigating that subject. As a conse
quence, he expects to introduce a bill soon
that will offer a practical solution. It will
authorize a non-partisan commission, com
posed of representatives of labor, agricul
ture and business, which is to investigate
the subject fully and then report to con
gress the legislation it deems advisable.
SOME of the tests made at Indian Head,
below Washington, are attended with re
markable results. At the test made there,
Thursday, a 17-inch Harveyiaed armor
plate, manufactured by the Carnegie Co.,
met with disaster. The plate itself cost
$21,000, weighing 33 tons, and was one of
a gronp of plates weighing 387 tons, which
are worth to the Carnegie company $246,
000. The plate had been made with as
great care as possible by the Carnegie Co.,
and it was hoped that a successful (troop
had been secured, for it was desirable to
remove, as far as possible, the doubts cast
on HarrevUed steel plates by the failure
of the 18-inch plate made by the Bethle
hem company, and tested some time ago.
This plate was as sound and fine a spec
imen of Harveyiaed armor as has erer been
turned out. At least that is what the
Carnegie company thought. The second
test was the one that did the damage. A
Wheeler-Sterling 12-inch shell weighing
850 pounds was used, with 396 pounds of
brown prismatic powder, giving an initial
velocity of 1,858 foot pounds, and an ener
gy of 20,370 foot tons.
The shell pierced the plate entirely,
smashing through the 3J feet of oak back
ing and 3 feet of oak supports; through 50
feet of earth beyond, and into the woods
for 100 yards.
This was the first shell of the kind
which was manufactured by purely
American processes, which had been de
veloped iu this country.
The shot did as much damage as any
shot ever did. The resolt was entirely un
expected to the Carnegies and the ord
nance officers. Capt. Sampson said the
shell was a phenomenal one and the plate
The Strikes.
Saturday's news from the strikes was
that it was broken. Debs was not sustain
ed by the approval of his men generally
and be was denounced as an autocrat
Sovereign felt sore over the failure of the
men to go out, but said he woold continue
the fight.
At Sacramento, Cal., the regulars and
strikers came together and two men were
badly wounded aud others iojureJ. Mar
tial law was put in force and the strikers
were defiant.
On Saturday at Sacramento, Harry
Knox, leader of the strikers at that point
was arrested for conspiracy in conneotiou
with the train wrecking at the trestle west
of Sacramento.
A fierce battle occurred on Monday after
noon between striking miners and deputies
near Birmingham, Ala., in which six men
were killed and nearly a score wounded.
The wildest excitment exists and the ne
groes are especially terror stricken.
Eugene V. Debs, Geo. W. Howard, L.
W. Rogers and Sylvester Keliber, tbe ol
ficers of the A. R. Union were committed
to jail Tuesday by Judge Seaman of tbe
U. S. C'onrt. The men were held under
$3,000 bond but refused to have their lib
erty and went to jail. They were arrested
for refusing to obey tbe injunction re
straining them from interfering with
the running of trains nnder the interstate
commerce law.
United States cavalry of Fort Reno, un
der command of Capt. J. O. Mackey
which had been detained to gnard the
Rock Island road, missed death at the
hands of the Pond Creek train wreckers at
1 o'clock Tuesday morning by ler.s than
200 feet. Two explosions of dynamite oc
onrred within 200 yard« at tbe sonth out
skirts of the city, immediately after the
special train earring tbe troops from
Enid to Pond Creek station bad passed.
One of tbe shots exploded immediatly
under tbe train but did no damage, but
the other blew ont a cattle guard and
shattered tbe rails and won'd have com
pletely demolished the train had it ex
ploded a few seconds later.
The mayor of Enid wired the governor
and the United Stales authorities t u at the
local authorities were unable to keep down
insurrection or to apprehend the men who
have been destroying the railroad prop
arty and asked tor an increase of the num
ber of United State* troops stationed in
the city.
Through the kindness of Capt. Fleeger
we are permitted to publish the following
extraots from his address on July 4th, ac
cepting the monument for the people. We
are obliged to omit much of the valuable
historical part because of iu length, but it
is said that steps are being taken to pub
lish, in pamphlet form, the fall proceed
Mr. Chairman, Ladies, Gentlemen, Com
rades and Fellotc Citizens: —
On this, the 4th day of July- a day ded
icated to liberty 118 years ago by the
Fathers of the Republic—we have assem
bled to receive from the hands of the Mon
umental Association this beautiful monu
ment to the memory of our heroic dead. It
was eminently fitting and appropriate,
that thia, the natal day of American Liber
ty, should be selected by the Association
for this important and patriotic event
Thus blending oar celebration of tbe anni
versary of the signing of the Declaration of
American Independence, with the dedica
tion of this monument to the memory of
the sons of Butler county, who in the
great ciril war from 1861 to 1865 gave up
their lives that that nation which was con
ceived in liberty "should not perish from
the earth." . ,
While we to-day recognize that all o:
that vast army—marshalled in defence or
the Union—whose left flank rested upon
the coast of the Atlantic, while its right
swept the base of the Sierras, ars entitled
to our graceful recognition, our highest
honor, our warmest gratitude, and our
lasting remembrance for their services and
sacrifices in behalf of our beloved land,
yet we to-day especially remember the
soldiers of Bntler county who gave up
their lives that our nation might live—we
to-day bring our laurel wreath to their
graves—to- day we dedicate that monument
to their memory. Citizens of Batler coun
ty, that is your tribute to the memory of
those who were of your flesh and blood
who went out from your midst, and whose
vacant chairs are in the households and at
the firesides of Butler county homes.
Our county was settled about 100 years
ago bv a hardy, energetic and courageous
people; with strong arm and brave hearts
these first settlers came to this, then un
broken wilderness, to secure for them
selves homes and to better their condition.
For years the woodman's ax rang sharp and
clear over onr hills, and along pur valleys,
as these hardy pioneers battled with the
forests, and cleared the pathway for civil
isation. They transmitted the sterling
qualities of their integrity, energy and pa
triotism to their descendants. Hence the
tpeople of our county were a hardy, brave,
honest, industrious, patriotic and law abid
ing people. A people well fitted, when
the hour of trial and danger would come,
it such hour should come, to meet it w ''h
true fortitude and courage. In 1861 that
hour came, then the veil which the proph
etic Webster prayed might not be drawn in
his day, was drawn aside; then the cload
whc»e muttering thunders had often been
heard away off in the distance, burst in all
its fury over us, growing deeper, darker,
blacker, denser until it covered our whole
sky,and its zigzag lightnings flashed across
every deorstep, and its rumbling thunders
reverberated in every home within our
connty. The time had come when more
than taxes was asked, when a richer treas
ure than money was demanded on the part
of our government from onr people. A
rebellion, gigantic in its proportions, headed
and led on by muddened, determined
men bad arisen, threatening the overthrow
of the fair fabric of our government, rear
ed by the toils and sacrifices of
the patriots of the revolu
tion. The 11 states engaged in this rebel
lion had thrown off the authority of our
government —torn down, insulted nd
trampled upon our flag-organized a govern
mont of their own, adopted a standard of
their own, seized and taxen forcible posses
sionofthe forts, arsenals, custom houses
and other property of the government
within the boundaries of these states
raised, equipped and marshalled their
armies—set at defiance the authority and
laws of our government and with threa ten
ing boldness pnshed their armed legions,
and displayed their traitor flags within the
very sight of our Capitol. They threw
down the guage of battle. Our govern
ment took it up, it could do nothing else,
the dignity, the honor, yea the very life,
the very existence of our government de
manded that that unjust and causeless re
bellion should be put down and the author
ity of our government restored to every
foot of our territory, and our flag, the sym
bol of our union, again placed on evey
fort, arsenal and custom house of the land.
I will not stop here to discuss the oanses
that lead to that rebellion,suflfoe it to say,
once lor all. that it was a wicked, cruel,
unjust and oauseless one. Notwitbstand
idg all that a Rev. Cave may say. Not
withstanding all that a General Rosser
may say. Notwithstanding all that gush
ing sentimentalists who weep bitter tears
over the grave of the "Lost Cause" may
tav —In that contest the North was right,
eternally right—the South was wrong,
eternally wrong. It was the struggle of
the nation lor existence—division meant
death-the God of nature never intended that
our domain should be divided in that way.
Our hills, our mountain ranges and our
rivers all run the wrong way. All the re
sources of a large part of our country, all
the abilities and energies of an able and
courageous people impelled by tnat spirit
which would rather "reign in hell" tban
"serve in heaven," and led on by a pur
pose, • determination, a madness they
oannot now understand or explain,—were
put forth for the dismemberment and de
struction of onr Government, and the es
tablishment (upon its ruins) of a Souther
an Confederacy wnose corner stone should
be slavery. It was the final —the death
grapple, on this continent, between free
dom and slavery—the inevitable conflict
had come. Compromise had been heaped
upon compromise, but all of no avail, the
vexed question would not down, the peo
ple in the sacred urn of the ballot box had
recorded the majority's will that slavery
should go no further, but it was ol noavail
the South flew to arms, and by her own
overt act transferred the antagonist c ques
tion of freedom and slavery from legisla
tive halls and the ballot box to the battle
field. They appealed to the stern arbitra
ment ol war. These questions which had
so long vexed the people of our land, were
by the deliberate act, the choice of the
Sonth, to be settled amid the roar of artil
ery, the rattle of musketry, the uiad rush
of charging squadrons and the clang of
clashing sabers. The great question at
stake was, shall our government survive
the shock of armsf Or, shall it like a me
teor, that for a moment has dazzled the
eye, go ont in blackness and darkness?
Shall the prediction so often made by mon
archists and imperialists of the old world,
that our government oould not long sur
vive, be stamped as melancholy truthT
Shall the last experiment of man for self
government be a failure? These were the
questions that confronted us as a nation
and which we were compelled to face, and
these questions were to be decided by the
arbitrament of the sword, the ordeal of
battle, at the cannons month and the bay
onets point. Looking back now through
29 years of peace we can scarcely realize
the deep, interne interest of that hour, as
the situation, with all its consequences,
the existence of our nation at stake, was
forced upon the people. It was in such an
hour as this, and with such momentous
questions as these to be solved by the or
deal of war that the young men of Uutler
county in 1861 to 1865 stepped upon the
stage to act their part in the grandest and
bloodiest drama the world ever beheld.
And how did tbe people of Butler county
act their part in this trying hour of our
nation's perilt That I consider an appro
priata question for this occasion. We
make that inquiry to-day—as citizens of
tbe county we are deeply interested in tbe
answer—was it such as to cause us to-day
to hang our heada in shame, or was it such
as we can look back to with prideT
Thank God the fathers of that day were
true patriots! Thank God tbe mothers,
wives, listers and maidens of that day did
not falter or fail in tbe face of tbe stern
requirements of the hour! Heroically tbey
arose to the occasion, stifling tbe prompt
ings of love, bidding tbe voice of affection be
silent, Spartan like they.brougbt tbe shield
and with tbe injunction "Come with it
when the battle's done, or on it from the
field," they saw son, and husbaud, and
brother, and lover depart for the scene of
conflict—tbe post of duty aud danger.
Oh, to how many fathers and mothers,
wives, sisters and maidens of our county
was the sight of the loved one, as starting
for bis compauy, he disappeared down the
road, over the hill, or at the turn of the
street their last recollection of him on earth.
How many never crossed thethre.hhold of
home agafnf
And how did tbe young men of Butler
couqty meet the stern demands of that
hour T I am glad to say bere to-day, 33
years since that time, here in the face of a
new generation, here in tbe bearing of
man;- to whom that time i.-> only a tradi
tion, they proved themselves worthy sons of
such fathers and mothers, worthy husbands
of snch wives, worthj- brothers of such sis
ters, Worthy lo\ers of such maidens. At
their country's call they came bravely,gal
lantly. Tbey eame from our farm-houses,
our workshops, our mines and manufactor
ies, our stores, our schools aud our acade
mies. They came determined to stand by
our flag, to do or die for tbeir country.
It was well for us as a nation that in that
supreme hour of peril we had at the head
of our government the immortal Lincoln,
that his steady hand held the helm of our
ship of state as it was dashed amid the
troubled waters.
On the 4th day of March, 1861, as the
duly elected President of the United
States, he had taken his official oath ha/1
raised his hand to heaven and sworn "to
protect and defend the Constitution and
Government of the United States." Now
in April, 1861, eleven states are in open re
bellion, the authority of the Government
is set at defiance, Fort Sumter has been
fired upon and after a gallant resistance
by its small garrison has been compelled
to surrender, the stars and stripes have
been hauled down and the stars and bars,
of the Southern Confederacy, run to the
top of the flag staff.
In the face of such events, with his of
ficial oath resting upon him, with his du
ties as the Chief Executive of this nation
pressing upon him, there was but one
course for the President to pursue, the
time had passed for parlyingor discussion,
the time for action, decisive action, bad
come. Promptly the call for 75,000 men
for three months was sent out. Although
we did not at that time have the railroad
or telegraphic facilities that we do now,
yet that call soon reached Butler county.
Our quota for that call was one company.
Scarcely had the call reached here ere tho
drum beat was heard on your streets and
the young men from Butler and the sur
rounding country came forward, enrolled
their names, and within a few hours from
the time the news reached here that
first company under Capt. John N. Purvi- ;
ance, an honored and respected citizen ot
our town who has since gone to his rest,
started for the front. You speak of John
N. Purviance as "General," well did he de
serve that title and all the honors that
were conferred upon him, and which he so
gracefully bore. But to me John N. Pur
viance never appeared grander and nobler
than when as Captain of that first com
pany from Butler county, at his country's
first call, he went forth to the post of duty
and danger in defense of our flag and the
uaion he loved to well. That company be
came Co. H, of the J3th Reg., Pa. \ ols.,
and became part of the army under Gen.
Patterson, operating in the vicinity of
Harper's Ferry, Martinsburg and Shep
But events thickened, it was soon dis
covered that you might as well try to dam
up the waters of the Allegheny with reeds
as to try to crush that rebellion with 75,-
000 men. Again the call go« 6 out, 200,000
more, for 3 year?. Capt. Samuel Loudon,
a sterling patriot, who loved his country,
had recruited a company at Sunbury and
from that section of tbe" county iu May,
1861, and was awaiting orders. Capt. Win
Stewart, a gallant, patriotic young man,
had also in May, 1861, recruited a company
at Evans City from that section ol the
county. These companies promptly oflor
ed their services to the government and
were accepted They entered the service
on the 10th day of June, 1861, aud became
Cos. C and Dot the 11th Reg., Pa Ke
serves. This regiment was assigned to the
Army of the Potomac, and became a part
of the old First Army Corps, aud after
wards of tbe Fifth Army Corps.
In mentioning the companies from this
county as they left our county and weat
out to the front we will, at the present fol
low them no further than the army to
which they were assigned, we will go
with them until they enter th. ir corps, we
will then for the present bid them good
bye and let the curtain drop—behind it are
the soen*s of battle and caruage and death,
the rent and trodden field, the hospital of
pain and the gloomy prison pen. In
August, 1861, Capt. Thomas McLaughlin
recruited a company from the central por
tion of our county. This compiny was
promptly accepted by the gorvernment,
and entered the service as 00. U, 102 d
Reg . Pa. Vols , was assigned to the Army
of the Potomac, and became a part ot the
grand old Sixth Army Corps.
Also in August, 1861, Capt. James E.
Cornelius recruited a company in the west
ern and north western part of the county.
Tnis company was at once accepted aud
became Co. C of the 100 th Kegt , Pa. \ ids.
This regiment, with other regiments, was
ordered to Aunapolis, Md., there they
were placed oo steamers; sealed orders
were given to the Colonel, not to be open
ed until out upon the ocean. When open
ed these orders read "Sail for the entrance
to Port Royal Harbor." Wo will there, out
on the ocean, bid Co. Cof tbe 100 th good
bye—their faces are turned away south
ward, their orders take them to the front
of Charleston, the hot-bed of secession—
the birthplace of treason.
In Sept, 1861, Capt. Win. S. Jack re
cruited a company from the vicinity of
Butler borough, Harrisville and other parts
of the county. This company was prompt
ly accepted by the government and bo
come Co. Hof the 78th Regt., Pa. Vols.
This regiment with the 77th and 79th Pa
were organized into a brigade, under the
gallant Gen. Jas. S. Negley; at Pittsburg,
Pa., were placed on steamers and ordered
westward to join our gallant Armies of
the West. They wore assigned to the
grand old 14th Corps, in the Army of the
Cumberland. This company was the rep
resentative ot Butler county in western
fields and in the Armies of Thomas, Itose
crans and Sherman
In October, 1861, a compiny in the
southern and central parts of tbe county
was recruited and organized under Capt.
Samuel Martin ; also at tbe same time one
in the northern part of the county under
Capt. Win. Fielding. These companies
were accepted by the government and be
came Cos. E ami I of the 103 I Kegt., Pa.
Vols , and were assigned to the Army ol
the Potomac, where they became part of
the old Fourth Army Corps, and wore
afterwards transferred to the coast of
North Carolina in tho vicinity of New
Following the disaster ol the Peninsula
the call lor moin troops was again made
by the government. And how did Butler
oounty, depleted by those who had gone
out in 1861, respond to that call'
In July end August, 1862, Capt. C. E.
Anderson, in the central part of the conn
ty; Capt. A. G. Kiddle, in the western part
of the county; Capt. Win. O. Brocken
ridge, in the north-western part of the
county; and Capt. Edwin Lyon, at Hutler
and in the central part of the county, each
recruited a company; tendered their ser
vices to the government; were accepted,
and these four companies became Cos. C,
F, G and K "fthe 134'b Regt., Pa. Vols.;
were hurried forward to the Army of the
Potomac, and became part of the Fifth
Corps. Also about the sam*> time, to-wit:
in August, 1862, Capt. G. W Hays, in tbe
southern part of the county; Capt. Henry
Pillow, in the vicinity of Prospect and the
western part of the county; and Capt.
Allen Wilson, in trie northern p irt of the
county, each recruited a company. These
companies were at once accepted by the
government and became companies D, F
and Gof the 137 th Keg., Pa. Vols ; were
sent to the Army of the Potomac and were
assigned to the old First Army Corps.
Also in 1862 Capt. John G Bippas' Co.
E, 169 th Kegt., Pa. Drafted Militia, enter
ed the service and were assigned to duty
on the coast. The term of service of this
company was nine months
Also in 1862 a company wm recruited in
the south-eastern part of the county by
L'apt. Win. H. Tibbies. This compa ly be
came Co L of the 14th Kegt , Pa. Cav. ,
and was assigned to duty in W. Va., when
it became a part id the cavalry command
ed by Gen. Averill.
We have thus uiuo comuanies from But
ler county entering the service in 1862, but
there were more than that I want,on thin
occasion, to ili> justice, an tar ,n I can, to
every organization that went out from our
county —to every man that went out from
our county, whether he was in a Butler
county company or no'., and to every pat
riotic eff'ott made liy our people in defense
of the government.
After the battle of Bull Kuti, fought on
the 29;b and 30th of August, 1862. the rebal
army ilated by its success eroaaed the Po
tomac, and started northward with the
proud boaat that the water* of the Alle
gheny would soon reflect thoir red battle
and the scene of war be transferred
from Southern to Northern fielda It was
indeed a critical hour when Ijee pushed
hit* ba'>alliona into Slaiyland and close to
tbe border of feniisj Ivatiia Another victo
ry to tbeir aruia aud Washington. Balti
more, Philadelphia and Pittsburg would
bo at their mercy. Though Butler county
was largely depleted of young men capa
ble lor the hardship* of service at that time
yet a company of emergency men. under
Capt Gilniore Campbell, was hastily or
ganized and started for the front, to inter
pose whatever barrier they could across
the path of l.ee's army—old grizzled veter
ans of many campaigns Don't smile when
I mention this company, their patriotism
had the true ring. They enlisted, tliey en
tered the service, secured arms, buckled
their cartridge boxes around them and
pushed bravely to the front, pausing not
until they were within the very circle of fire
at Antietam. This company was Co. 6of
the 14th Kegl., Pa. Emergency men.
Also about the same time Capt. Wm. K.
tlutcbir on's company C, 19th Kegr., Pa.
Militia impelled by the same patriotic im
pulses that led Capt. Campbell and his
Co. to the sound of the enemies guns at
Antietam entered the service to do what
they ( >uld in that trying time.
This makes 11 companies that went out
from our county in 1862.
But what of 1863 T In Jnne of that year
! after the disastrous battle of ChaMellnrs
] ville the Rebel Army agnin came north
; ward, this time they did not stop in Mary
-1 land, but pushed forth their legions into
the very heart of Pennsylvania. Prom
Chambersbnrg to the Susquehaunah the
tread of their veteran army pressing our
soil, and the rumble of their artillery
wheels was heard in our mountain passes
and along our valleys, till concentrating at
Gettysburg; the great battle of the war
was fought resulting in the triumph of the
Union arms, and the driving back of the
invader lrom our soil.
In this emergency Capt. W. R. Hutcbi
son'sCo. F,s6th Itegt.Pa Militia:Capt. E. L.
Gillespie's Co. G, and Capt W. M. Clark s
Co. I, 58th Regt., Pa. Militia, which vol
unteered for 90 days: entered the service
and rendered important and patriotic ser
In 1804 Capt W. R. Hutchison's Co. A,
and Capt. G. L. Braun's Co. B, 6th Pa
Artly., enlisted for one year and perform
ed service in front of Washington, on the
Virginia side of the Potomac, out to Man
In the early part of 1865 Capt. R. I.
Boggs recruited a company in the southern
part of our county, for one year, this com
pany was accepted by the government and
become Co. E 78th Pa. Vols, and was
ordered to Nashvtfle Tenn. where they re
mained until discharged.
This was the last company to enter the
service during the war. In the spring of
1865 came Appamatox and final victory to
the Union Arms, the authority of our
Govrn't was restored to, and our flag again
floated over every inch of our territory,
but over 300.000 of our noblest and best
had died that the nation might live.
In mentioning these companies I do not
mean to say that all who went out from
Butler county to the defence of the Gov
ernment were enrolled in them,nor that all
the Butler county soldiers who gave up
their lives during the war, fell in their
ranks. No, 1 know that very many men
from Butler county served in other organ
izations —the 4th, 7th, 9th and 16th Pa.
Cav. and the 23rd, 61st, 62nd, 63rd, 83rd.
101 st, 104 th, 105 th, 155 th, 190 th and 191 st
Pa. Infantry Regs, and the sth Pa. Heavy
Art'ly, and other organizations from Penn
sylvania had many Butler connty men in
their ranks—within the circle of a mile and
a half from my old home in Concord twp.,
I know of six young men, four of whom
were killed in battle and two died in pris
on, not one of whom was in a Butler coun
ty organization.
Anil how did the soldiers from our coun
ty perforin their dntiesf That is an im
portant question for us on this occasion. If
they performed them heroically and nobly,
gratitude demands at our hands, that we
who enjoy the rich heritage of a Union
preserved, should not permit the names or
the memories of the fallen to perish.
I have made the military history of our
county somewhat of a study, and 1 am
glad, my fellow citizens, to say, here in
your presence and hearing to-day, here at
the monument we dedicate to the lallen, I
do not believe that a single company that
went out from Butler county ever disgrac
ed its regiment, its county or its colors—
they took your flag torth with them, they
bore it without dishonor through the fiery
ordeal of many of the bloodiest battles of
of the war. They returned it to yon un
sullied "without a star erased or a single
stripe polluted."
The severe losses in killed and wounded
of many of the companies mentioned in the
bloodiest battles of the war attest the fideli
ty and bravery with which they stood by
onr flag wheu the bolts ot death fell thick
and fast. The percentage of losses in bat
tle in a number of these companies stands
among the highest of any organizations in
in our whole army. In the companies 1
have mentioned, as near as I can ascer
tain, 361 gave up their lives in the service.
Add to this those who full in other organi
zations and it would swell the honored list
of patriot dead ii over 500.
1 believe that there was not a single
corps in all our armies but what had Butler
county men in it. I believe there was not.
a single state over which the red tide of
battle surged, but was dyed wilh
the blood of Butler county's sons. I be
lieve that to-day the ashes of her dead
mingle with the dust of almost every
battle field of the war.
Where do our fallen rest! Some of
them wounded, or stricken by disease
came home to die, and in quiet church
yards and cemeteries of our county they
sweetly sleep the yoar4 away. Some sleep
on the battlefields where they 1011. Some
by the riveis and Mountain ranges of the
s.iuth, aud some by the sobbing sea. The
graves of some are known, but many are
unknown. Some sleep in the beautiful
National Cemeteries of our land These
Cemeteries are places ol beauty, ruefully
guarded and tended by the Nations hand,
adorned by walks and trees,and shrubbery,
and well kept lawns, as though repeating
the poets question "Why should a dark
ness soowl on any spot where man grasps
immortality" The flagncath which they fell
floats from the staff over them. The
over 16,000 who died within the
gloomy stockade at Audersonville
now repose in a cemetery made beauti
ful by the hand and care of the government
Butler county boys are sleeping there. Go
to the beautiful cemetery at Gettysburg,
on some of the headstones there you will
read the names of some of Butler co*nty
sons who fell in that battle. So at Arling
ton and Stone River and many other of
our national cemeteries.
This monument which we to-day dedi
cate is to the memory of all who gave up
tbeir lives for our country during the war
it matters not whether they served in a
Butler county organizatiou or in an organ
ization outside the county, whether they
fell amid the smoke and storm of battle,
or whether with fevered brow and parched
tongue they gave up their lives in the hos
pital, this monument is for them, for all
who died for our country.
Money spent in memorials to valor and
devotion to duty and country is not spent
in vain, there is something in such a
monument that touches the heart that
awakens aud stirs all the nobler and hotter
qualities of our nature. What teachers of
patriotism such monuments are! Who can
look upon them with iDilifTerenceT Who can
ostimate what Bunker IIiII Monument has
been to us as a nation f And what it has
been to us as a nation, this monument will
be to us as a county—a teacher of patriotism
for all the future; there all our patriotic
impulses can gather, and around it cau
cling; and should the hour of danger and
trial come, as come it may, should our sky
darken, us darken it may, then this monu
ment will be moro eloquent in its voiceless
appeal to patriotism and duty than the
words of any erator. And oh! I think as I
contemplate our troublous times, how
much wo need a pure patriotism. It is our
country's reliance, it should be taught
from our pulpits, and in our schools.
Obedience to, and respect for our laws
and order,the youth should be taught what
our government and liberties have cost and
the great value of peace and law and order,
they should be taught to love our country
and respect it 3 laws, they should be
tought that next to the Cross of Calvary,
our flag, the glorious stars and stripes is
the most sacred emblem on earth. Perils
are still th ; ckly around us, Kternal vigi
lance is still the price of liberty, for as th*j
poet has said "Not yet mayst thou un
brace thy corselet, or lay by thy sword
nor yet,oh Freedom,close thy lids in slum
ber, for thine enemy never slumbers or
sleeps, and thou must watch and combat
until the new earth and heaven"
It is said that the children of ancient
Greece for 300 years were taught to repeat
by memory the names ol the 300 who fell
at Thermopylae.
While Greece was patriotic, Greece was
great. When she ceased to remember
those who died for her, her
greatness departed, and well could the
poet write of her Isles "Kternal summer
gilds them yet. But all except their sun
is set."
This monument will be a teacher of
patriotism for all the future. Age will
reverence it, manhood look with pride
upon it and children with artless prai.:lo
will ask what it means—it will we trust
forever repeat the story of those who gave
life for country.
lam sorry that I cannot on this oc
casion give you tho price in young manly
and precious lives that Butler county paid
an her share for the preservation of our
national life, our glorius union, the money
cost of the war was small as compared
with the cost in life. Money cannot be
weighed against blood. All that a man
bath will he give for bis life, but here
from 1801 to 1805 wo see our young men,
our strong and vigorous, our noblest and
best giving their lives by hundreds, lor
what? That their beloved land might
live. Over their graves may truely be
written "We died that our country might
live." Oh wonderous patriotism well do
they deserve at our hands our highe st
honor*,and our lasting remembrances. This
monument that we dedicate to-day is our
tribute to their memory, we place it in
the most beautiful part ol our town, on
the solid and adamantine foundation of this
hiil, we build it of enduring granite, so
that the rains of summer and the snows
and storms of winter may beat against it
in vain, so that it may stand there for the
ages to come, and tell, when our lips my
comrades are sealed in death,
the story of our comrades
who for their country fell.
Look oyer our town, you see the spires
of onr churches pointing their long taper
ing fingers heavenward indicative of the
object for which they have been erected,
the worship of Almighty God. These are
our temples to Religion.
Here is oar beautiful Court House which
we all so much admire and of which we as
citizens of Butier Co. feel so justly proud;
this is our temple to justice.
There, now standing in that beautiful
6qnare, beautiful in its simplicity and sym
metry, is our memorial to patriotism.
It is true that it is not grand and mas
sive and towering and costly as are many
of the monuments of earth, but my fellow
citizens, it represents a heroism grander, a
patriotism nobler and sublimer. than that
commemorated by the Arch of Triumph.the
column Vendomf or the guilded lantern of
the Invalides.
Gentlemen of the Monumental Associa
tion:—ln behalf of the people of our coun
ty I congratulate j'ou on this occasion, on
the successful completion of your work.
They placed in your hands an important
and patriotic trust. The zeal with which
yon took hold of it—the energy, fidelity
and perseverance with which yon followed
it up. through discouragements and diffi
culties, meets with «ur highest praise, our
warmest commendation. In the name and
on the behalf of all the old soldiers of our
countv we thank you for this beautiful me
morial to the memory of our departed com
rades who sleep in soldiers' graves
In the name and on the behalf of all the
the people of our county, we thank you fir
this column which speaks in silent but elo
qaent tongue, not only of the patriotism of
thote whose memory it commemorates,but
also of the gratitude of our people.
In behalf of all these we accept this
beautiful memorial erected under your su
pervision and promise to guard and cherish
it with our teuderest care —to tell to trem
bling age. to youth and lisping childhood
what it represents, and thus to send its
story through the coming ages.
Fellow citizens: —I have in your behalf
acceptedthis monument from the association
it is now yours, and the futures dedicated
forever to the memory of our honored
dead, and while wo thus honor their mem
ory in granite let us protect, defend and
preserve the union, they by their deaths
saved to us, and we trust to all the gener
ations of the future. Let a true and un
selfish patriotism and devotion to duty and
country aver control us in all our actions
and condnct—thus may we honor their
memory by sending down to the future the
union preserved by them unimpaired.
When they fell beneath our flag there
were 34 stars upon its field of blue, there
are 44 now. May they still increase and
grow brighter and brighter with the com
ing years and may the last standard repre
senting earthly government, whose folds
may even catch the breath of the etjrnal
morning ba the glorious old stars and
For 29 years our honored dead have
slumbered in their graves, but they have
not been forgotten by their county. This
monument is now reared aud dedicated
forever to their memory. Sleep on my
comrades fallen; though no father or
mother or wife or sister or loved
one may ever stand by your low green
beds, yet the birds of song will ever carol
their sweetest melodies there, the stars of
heaven will ever look kindly down upon
yoa and the God of Heaven will ever lov
ingly watch over yoa, while
"Yon granite column's voiceless stone,
la deathless song shall tell.
When many a vanished year has flown,
The story how ye fell."
IN dealing with the offence which Debs
and his associates and followers commit
ted, Judge Grosscup is clear and incisive.
The riotous uprising at Chicago was in
surrection against the United States, and
the leaders were guilty of crimiral con
spiracy to incite insurrection. Labor has
absolute control of its own arm. It can
refuse to work if it choose. But Debs anil
his followers did not content themselves
with refusing to work. They violently
obstructed the mails of the United States.
They forcibly interrupted the movement
of interstate commerce. These agencies
of intercourse and trade are under the pro
tection of federal law, and in resisting the
execution of that law the rioters became
not simply a street mob but insurgents
against the authority and power ol the
United States. When resistance becomes
too formidable to ho dealt with by the or
dinary civil process and to require the in
terposition of military force it becomes fla
grant insurrection, and every man who en"
courages or sustains it becomes a public
Thk great Saengerfest l>al] in Cleveland
was crowded last Thursday at the opening
exercises of the Christian Endeavor con

meetings w»re held. It was estimated
that 25,000 delegates were in the city.

Washington Notes.
Monday's session of the conferees on the
Tariff bill ended in a row. The differences
of opinion were so radical as to prevent
progress, and led to harsh words.
There was a report in circnlation that
day to the effect that the Republican con
ferrees, angry as they are at being barred
from the consultations, were considering
the advisability of not attending the con
ference after they are invited by Chair
man Voorhees. This could not be verified.
In fact it is known that the Republicans
propose to be on hand and to contest every
inch with their opponents. It they find
that the Democrats have agreed upon a
a measure as radical as the Wilson bill
they propose to fight its adoption in the
conference and in the senate with all their
might. In fact they expect that they can
either kill the bill on a direct vote in the
Senate or to at least dela3~ a vote until af
ter the elections in November.
On Tuesday the Democratic conferees
called the Republicans into the confer
ence and there was a short general discus
sion that resulted in nothing. The Re
publicans were informed that the Demo
cratic conferees had been unable to reach
any agreement and that the chief points of
disagreement were sugar, iron ore and
coal, and certain features of the iron and
steei schedules and of the cotton and
woolen schedules, believed to be too high.
It was admitted that there were other dif
ferences. but they were minor ones only.
On Wednesday the conferees agreed to
disagree, and the whole Tariff bill was to
go to both Houses next day. The con
lerees could not agree on the sugar, metal,
ore and coal schedules, and will report a
disagreement on the whole measure. If
the Douse does not yield the prospects for
a deadlock are good.
Gresham's dispatch to Japan protesting
against its alleged war with Corea was con
sidered a blunder in oflicial circles.
EIGHT men were killed near Ilazlcton,
Pa , by the explosion of 200 sticks of giant
powder in the midst of a gang of miners at
Stockton Colliery, No. 8.
The Republican conferrees of the 24th
Congressional district met at Charleroi,
last Thursday and cast 49 more fruitless
ballots, and then adjourned to meet in
City Uall Pittsburg, July 24.
