The Heroic Dead
St. Johns' Roll of Honor
Was Civil War Veteran
The first threo American sol
diers killed in the trenches in
France are sleeping in French
soil, honored by tho American
army and the people and army
of France. Their final inter
ment took place last week.
With n guard of French infan
trymen in their picturesque
uniforms of red and horizon
blue standing on one side and
a detachment of American sol
diers on tho other, tho flag
wrapped caskets were lowered
into tho grave as a bugler blew
taps and tho batteries at the
front fired minute guns. As
. the minute guns went otf the
French officer commanding tho
division, in this section paid
tr mute to the fallen Ameri
enns. His words, which were
punctuated by tho roar of the
guns and the whistle of shells,
touched, both the French and
Americans. In conclusion the
French officer said: "In the
name of the th division, in the
name of the French army and
in the name of France, I bid
farewell to 1'rlvntG En right,
Private Gresham and Private
Hay, of the American army.
"Of their own free will they
had left a prosperous and happy
country to come over here. They
Knew war was continuing in
Europe, they knew that the
forces fighting for honor, love
of justice and civilization were
still checked by the long nrcnnr
ed forces serving tho powers of
brutal domination, oppression
and barbarity. They knew that
efforts were still necessary.
Thoy wished to give up thoir
generous hearts and they have
not forgotten old lustorica
memories while others forget
more recent ones.
"They ignored nothing of the
circumstances and nothing had
buen concealed from them
neither the length, and hard
ships of war nor the violence of
battle, nor the drcadfulncss of
now weapons, nor the perfidy
of the foe. Nothing stopped
them. 1 hey accepted tho hard
and strenuous life, they crossed
the ocean at great peri), they
took their places on the front
by our side and they have fallen
facing the foe in a hard and
desperate hand to hand fight.
Honor to them, llioir farm
lies, friends and fellow citizens
will bo proud when they learn
of their deaths.
"Men, these graves, the first
to lie dug in our national soil
and only a short distance from
tho enemy, arc as a mark of
tho mighty land wo and our
alii oh firmly cling to in tho com
mon task, confirming the will
of the people and the army of
the United States to fight with
uh to a finish.ready to sacrifice
its long" as is necessary 'until
final victory for the most not
nblo of causes- that of the
liberty of notions, the weak as
well as tho mighty. Thus the
duaths of humble soldiers an-
ptar to us with extraordinary

the mortal remains of these

Following is a list of those
from St. Johns who have enlist
ed in Uncle Sam's service and
who are now at the different
training camps. We probably
overlooked some, as it is ex
ceedingly difficult to learn them
all. So if you know of any
overlooked, will you kindly fur
nish their names, so that they
may be added to St. Johns Roll

FROM its beginnins, the Union Pacific has been
"The National Railroad," a patriotic institution.
Lincoln and other great men urged its construction
for national protection and development.
The prophetic vision of those,
who founded this great railroad
during a period of national stress
is now apparent in these times of
international conflict. Again the
Union needs its Union Pacific.
The Union Pacific is doing its
utmost to expedite the enormous
war fdiiptuents from the Treasure
States it serves. Grain, cattle, min
erals, lumber, wool and oil arc
needed aa never before.
For new equipment alone the
Union Pacific is spending over
$U000,000 to give American peo
ple and industries still better ser
vice. This is aside from even greater
sums necessary for double-track-
additional yard and
facilities and other improvements
designed to add to the traffic carry
ing capacity of the property.
Just now some of our ordered
equipment s unobtainable for im
mediate delivery because our Allies
must be served first so we will
win. The Union Pacific and The
Union Pacific States must use
available equipment to its greatest
The 41,000 employes of the
Union Pacific and the 11,000.000
people of the western wealth-producing
states now have an interna
tional obligation to fulfill.
Were Lincoln to speak today in
behalf of the Union Pacific, as he
urfjed its building, h would insist
on those high service -standards for.
which we are striving.
