E. P. GREFFCZ,
Provide - a Monument for the Late
. James Dunn Proposed in Barial
'.."- -..Sermon.. :.
In his funeral eulogy over the re
mains of the late James Dunn: at
Sheriff Burnett's house Wednesday,
Rev.; Carrick declared that the mu
nicipality;; of .. Corvallis ought to
place a monument at the grave of
the deceased. : Many persons view
the suggestion with favor, and say
that under the circumstances : the
proposed action would be fully war
ranted. In part, the sermon is as
follows: ' ? ' ':
"It was while filling the instruct
ions placed upon the , trestle board
of duty that his useful life came . to
an end. ; At the call of our country
we send our sons to the frontier or
the foreign land to defend our bor
ders, or uphold our , demands.
When they fall in battle, -their names
are placed upon our country's honor
roll of fame, and loved ones yearly
garland their graves. Eulogies are
uttered in their praise, and songs
are sung in gratitude, and this is
well. -Such- disputes are national
rather than local, and the danger to
our homes and persons are far dis
tant. It is otherwise here. It was
to maintain peace in our city, to pro
tect our own society and to defend
innocent men, that Mr. Dunn sac
rificed his life, and that the , other
officers ancl their deputies placed
their lives upon the altar of their
city. " These they would command
and I am sure the officers would
thank them for their unselfishness
and devotion. But words are in
adequate to " express our . gratitude
to this man who gave his life for
us. Our tongues are voice less,
but our hearts are enlarged with un
uttered appreciation. As 'we lay
away our friend we feel that he
does not belong to one family, but
to our city. If the fallen soldier is
our country's dead, so our fallen
soldier is our city's dead. On Me
morial day, when we meet to re
member the fallen, let this city
never forget to honbr this, her hero-
nr- t ... ...
ic omcer. juer, tne citizens place a
monument at his grave. Tis the
least they can do, and yearly gar
land it with the fairest of roses and
sweetest of forget-me-nots. :
.as we tmnK ot tne man we are
not unmindful of the cause" of his
death. Thinking men may well
meditate. Vice - and lawlessness
among our youth have been too ap
parent ot late.
