"On the reverse side of the great
seal of the United States, authorized
by congress, June .20, 1782, and
adopted as the seal of the United
States of America after its. forma
tion under the federal constitution,
is tlie ipyramid, signifying strength
and duration. The eye over it and
the motto allude to the, many .sig
nal interpositions of Providence in
favor of the American cause. The
date underneath. 1776. is that of
-the Declaration of Independence,
and the words under it signify the
beginning of a . new American era,

. . (It is impossible .to trace our his
tory since without leeling that the
' Providence which -.was -with us :in
nation his gracious interposition.
When, unhappily, we have . been
engaged in war, he has given us
the victory. Fortunate, indeed,
it. .i'li i-- :.i l ; l

clash of arms which has ended in
ing from war is tainted with dis
honor. In peace we have been sig
nally blessed, and our progress has
gone on unchecked and ever increas
ing in the intervening years. In
boundless wealth of soil and mine
and forest nature has favored us,
while all races of men, of every na
tion'ality and climate,, ha ye con
tributed their good blood to make
Trom 3,927,214 "in 1790, 5ur
population has grown to upwards
of fi2.000.000 in 1890. and our
estimated population today, made
77,803,231. . We have grown, from
.13 states to 45. We have annexed
lerory variety of territory, from the
tf.erai ireefs and cocoa-nut groves of
Ke WLest to the icy regions .of
Kor-thern Alaska territory skirt
ing; the. Atlantic, the .Gulf of Mex
ico, the Pacific and the Arctic, and
tbj& ila,nds of th IP.aific and Carib
bean sea, and we ihave extended
sti.H further our jurisdifiion to the
iwt&w&f iiimd8 ia Pacific.
Qw? . territory is more .baa ifour
times as large as it was a;h.en tthe
treaty of peace was signed in
Our industrial growth ha-;beA'
even more phenomenal than that'
of popiilation or territory, . Our
wealth, estimated in 1790 at $464,

000,000. .... . .:
"Education has not been over
looked. The mental and moral
equipment of the youth on whom
will in the future rest the responsi
bilities of . government have held
the unceasing and generous care of
the state and the nation. ' We ex
pended in 1897'98 in public educa
tion open to all, $202,115,548; for
secondary education, $23,474,683,
and for higher education for the
same period, '$30,307,902, The
number of pupils enrolled in public
schools in 1896-97 was 14,652,492,
,or more than 20 per cent of- our
population. Is not this a pillar of
Strength to the republic?
. l.Qur national credit, often tried,
ibas beon ever upheld. It has no
superior and no stain, The United
Stetes has never repudiated; a na
tional obligation, either to .its .cred
itors ox to. humanity. It will not
now begin to do either, It never
Struck a blow except for" civiliza
tion, and never struck its colors.
''Has the pyramid lost any of its
Strength? Has the republic lost
lin' of its virility? Has the self
governing principle been weakened?
Is there any present menace to our
stability, and duration? These
questions bring-but one answer.
The- republic is , sturdier j- and
stronger than ever before. - Govern
ment by the people has been ad
vanced. Freedom under the flag is
more uiversal than when the Union
was formed. Our. steps have been
forward, not backward. : . From
Plymouth Rock to the Philippines
the " grand ;; triumphant rmarch of
human Hherty has never, paused.
' ;. "Fraternity and imiori are deeply
imbedded in the hearts of the
American people. For half a cen
tury, before the civil war, disunion
was the fear of men of all sections.
That word .has gone out of the
American vocabulary; It is spoken
now only as a historical memory.
North, South, East and West were
never so welded together, and while
they may differ about internal poli
cies, they are all for the Union and
the maintenance of the flag. , "
' ;"Has patriotism died out in the
hearts of the people? Witness the
250,000 men' springing to arms And
in 30 days organized into regiments
for the Spanish war, a,nd a.;000,000
more , ready to respond; -and the
more recent enlistment of 70,000
men, with many 'Other thousands
anxiousito enlist, but whose services
were snot' needed. . Has American
iieroism declined? The . shattered
and sinking fleets of , the Spanish
navy at Manila and Santiago, the
charge of San Juan and El Caney,
and the intrepid Valor and deter
mination of our gallant troops in
more than 40 engagements in Luzon
at test, the fact that the American
soldier and sailor have lost none of
the qualities which made our ear-lhiE-army
and navy illustrious and
invincible. - ' ' .
- '"After 123 years the pyramid
stands unshaken.. It has had some
severe shocks; but it remains im
movable. . It has endured the
storms of war, only to be stronger.
It stands .firmer and gives more
promise of duration than when the
fathers made it .the symbol of their
faith. May we. not feel' assured
that if we do our duty, Providence,
which favored the undertaking of
the fathers and every step of our
progress since, will continue his
watchful care and guidance over us,
and that the, hand that led . us to
our present plane will not relax his
grasp till ? we : have, reached the
glorious goal he has fixed for us in
the achievement of his end?"; -"'
So I conclude by saying that this
nation has been greatly - blessed,
and at this . hour we are a united
and prosperous and patriotic peo
ple,' And may that Divine Provi
dence who has guided us in all our
undertakings, from the inception of
the ' government, continue his
gracious and assuring favor to us
for evermore." - - ''- "
' Dewey's greatness does not rest
alone on the famous battle in which
he destroyed an enemy's entire
fleet and shore batteries in a few
hours, without the loss of a man or
ship. .Aside from it. and his mar
velous preparedness before the bat
tle, we must remember his supreme
devotion to duty from May 1, 1898,
to May 20, 1899, when he never
left Manila bay for more than a
few hours to recover from the heat,
responsibilities and cares; his tact
and diplomacy, mingled with firm
ness of dealing with foreign squad
rons; his own good management of
relations with the; Filipinos, so that
they both feared and respected him;
his perfect harmony with the army;
the conduct of the affairs of his
squadron and of other matters with
remarkable executive capacity, and
finally, his simplicity of character,
his unaffected nature, and his
modesty of act, manner and word
in face of great renown and the
lavish love and esteem of the Ameri
can people... The chief effect of so
much praise has been to make him
gentler in thought and disposition
and to evolve the trained sailor into
the great ' man. His principal
charm lies in being one of us, as it
were, not above and beyond, but
with and of those around him. " If
his feelings on this occasion were
to be honestly stated and his char
acter delineated at the same time
in one sentence, it; could be said
that he comes' home to us with his
heart, not his head, swelled." .
E very war in our history has been
the .making of a president, but-in
this case the military or naval hero
will ;have :to Wait . for years, as
President McKinley likes "his job
very much, rand .the politicians of
the republican party are satisfied
with him. Telegram. . -
At Little Rock, Ark,, ta.man has
been sentenced to imprisomnent for
115 years. If there had no'tibeen
mitigating -circumstances in his 3a
vor, he might have been sentenced
for life, '
It is folly to talk of Dewey ac
cepting the presidential nomination
on an anti-expansion ticket. He
did not fight on .that side. He is a
patriot and stands by his country.
After Admiral Dewey has taken
a brief rest, Mark Hanna and Mr.
McKinley may conclude that they
need him badly for governor-general
of the Philippines.
Admiral Dewey says he cannot
make a speech. - That is one reason
