amid a roar of cheerlngThat echoed far
down the intersecting streels and avenues.
The President and members of the Cabi

don. President HcKinler's Address.
President McKlnley received an ovation
us he was Introduced, and it was some
time before he could begin his remarks.
He spoke as follows:
"My Fellow-citizens: It is a good token
when patriots are honored and patriotism
exalted. Monuments which express the
nation's gratitude for great deeds inspire
great deeds. The statue unveiled today
proclaims .our country's appreciation of
one of her heroic sons, whose name is
dear to the American, people, the Ideal
volunteer toldler of two wars, the mi
nent Senator and commoner. General John
A. Logan. Logan's career was unique. His
distinction does not rest upon his mili
tary achlevemets alone. His services in
the Legislature of his own state, in the
National House of Representatives and in
the Senate of the United States would
Jhave given him an equally conspicuous
place In the annals of the country. He
was great in the forum and in the field.
"Some names Instantly suggest senti
ment. That of Logan stands for exalted
patriotism. This was the key of his suc
cess. Party politics to him was nothing
-when the Union was in danger: When
the alternative came he was swift to ded
icate his Jlfe and fortune to the party of
Lincoln because it stood for the indivisi
bility of the Union. How much he did to
create and increase the sentiment of loy
alty and patriotism among the people of
ills own state and throughout the Nation
can never be told. He stood with Douglas
"holding up the cause of the Union, and
offered his own life as a cheerful sacrifice,
if need be, for its preservation.
"Logan was never halt hearted. An In
tense patriot, he was also an intense par
tisan. He was forceful in the Senate as
he was undaunted in battle. He had con
victions and followed them to their con
clusions at any cost. He was never a
trimmer nor a laggard. He despised du
plicity, was the soul of frankness and al
ways at the front in every struggle, civil
or military, during the years of his event
ful life. He was a leader from boyhood,
the recognized captain among his youth
ful associates. His integrity was pro
nounced and served him well, as integrity
will serve every man who has and keeps
it. His success was founded on good char
acter, unfailing sincerity, high courage
and unremitting Industry. He came out
of the war with the highest military hon
ors of the volunteer soldier. Brilliant in
battle and strong1 In military council, his
was also the true' American spirit, for
when the war was ended he waB quick and
eager to return to the peaceful pursuits
of civil life.
"While a strict disciplinarian, he was j-et
beloved by all his men. No duty was too
hazardous for them to cheerfully under
take and no sacrifice was too great for
hem to undergo when he commanded.
He was not, only conslderate-and tender of
the soldiers whom he led, but generous and
courteous to bis brother pincers. It was
significant of his .generous spirit that un
der the tempting opportunity of great
command he declined it fafhvir than in
justice shduld be done and Humlllatlbn put
upon a brother officer. H6 wonder that
General Logan Was the ideal of the rank
and file -of the army. They loved him;
b.e lox'ed them.
"In Washington, with mosfonerous and
exacting Senatorial duties resting upon
him, he was devoted to the -wants and
necessities of his old comrades: His sym
pathy, his services and his purse were
never denied them In their need.. He was
among the first commanders of the Grand
Army of the Republic and to him we are
indebted for that beautiful service which
May 30 each year brings to the graves, of J
rests in everlasting comradeship; Ithe of
ferings of an affectionate people and the 1
undying gratitude of a nation.
"As a popular orator, his voice was
neard in every state and territory f the J
Union, always for his conntrj'o.nd :f or the 3
nag he loved.
"The highest eulogy ever paid him, was
by his father. The latter in his will di
vided his property between his widow
and children equally, except and I quote
from the will 'John Alexander, whose
marked abilities are such that he can
provide for himself and aid his mother
if necessary. This provision is not made
from want of affection, but because of
unbounded confidence in his future suc
cess'. "What a remarkable tribute from father
to son. That expression of faith wa&J
enough to fire the young man's noblest
aspirations and call out the best that was
within him. And how worthily he vindi
cated the confidence. To have inherited,
to have deserved and to have fulfilled the
commendation from his father's love and
faith were better than any Inheritance of
lands and tenements, stocks, bonds and
money. Beloved of father, wife and chil
dren, beloved of his comrades In war and
in peace, and beloved of his country, his
whole life realized his father's prophecy,
and Its words would adorn any monument
to his fame."
The. President several times was inter
rupted by applause, and there was a great
outburst of cheering when he concluded.
Senator Depew's Oration.
The oration was delivered by Senator
Depew, of New York, who spoke as fol
lows: . v ,
"The "Typical American has long been
the subject of discussion and portraiture.
In caricature, in picture and upon the
stage our national characteristics are rep
resented by the 'brother Jonathan,' who
is sharp, keen, aggressive and fearless,
but who exhibits no trait of that cul
ture, sensitive honor and lofty morality
which marks a noble" and successful peo
ple. We do not, therefor, find the 'typ
ical American' In the sketch of the artist
or upon the dramatic stage.
"The professional or business man who
has been successful In his pursuit; the
one who, with the great opportunities of
fered in the United States and by the
exercise of rare gifts has accumulated a
phenomenal fortune; or the distinguished
soldier or sailor who has come from the
severe training of West Point or Annap
olis is not peculiar to our country. He
exists under all governments and accom
plishes the same career under all Insti
tutions. American liberty and law which
grant to all equal opportunities, which
neither foster nor favor nor permit class
or privilege, cultivate a kaleidoscope ac
tivity which Is possible alone with us. It
develops an American who passes easily
and naturally to and from private pur
suits and public life; is ready and force
ful upon the platform or in hall of legis
lation; is facile with his pen and keen
upon all questions of current Interest and
with that leisure which comes only to
the very busy, finds rest and recreation
In travel, fraternal organizations and so
ciety. . "He early in life becomes a member of
the military company of his town or the
National Guard of his state and locks his
office or leaves the shop to march with
his command to the field of duty and of
danger. If he survives the perils of bat
tle and dangers of disease he practically
beats his sword into a plow share and his
spear Into a pruning hook by exchanging
the uniform of the soldier for the dress
of the citizen and quietly resuming the
peaceful paths of the Industry he aban
doned to fight for his country. The Grand
Army of the Republic has upon Its rolls
numberless examples, living and dead, of
heroes in war who were also successes
in the professions or business, orators of
.rare merit and statesmen of unique dis
tinction. Such a man a typical Ameri

Mr. Depew sketched the life of Gener
al Logan from the time he entered the
Mexican War as a private until he was
made Commander of the Army of the
Tennessee, In the Civil War, characteriz
ing him the finest example of the volun
teer soldier. Continuing he said:
"The most gratifying tribute to him
self and the best expression of the opin
ion of the volunteer Army in regard to
him was his election as the First Com
mander of the Grand Army of the Repub
lic, and the election repeated as often as
he would accept the place."
Concluding, Mr. Depew said:
"In every, community in our land the
leaders of public opinion and the dwel
lers in the homes of prosperity have
come from the ranks. Among those suc
cessful Americans in many lines who have
won and held the public eye and died
mourned by all their countrymen, there
will live- in the future in the history of
the Republic no nobler figure, In peace
and in war,. In the pursuits of the citizen

of the torpedo-boat destroyer Perry to

GRIEVANCES OF CHINA.
For Years She Han Been Bulldozed
by the European Povrers.
CHICAGO, April 9President Angell, in
the course of his speech here tonight,
referred to China and declared that In
his opinion the Administration of Presi
dent McKlnley in dealing in China "has
been following the same wise, magnani-
mous and noble policy which General
Grant himself 'would have followed If he
had been President of the United States,
a policy of magnanimity and justice."
Then, speaking of the grievances of the
Chinese, he said:
"No nation was ever exposed to such
provocations from the great powers of the
world as China has been "during the last
tworyear' I hatfe not tImd''to g6 over
the whole fetory;' I will refer f to but a
single"' thing, and that fe to the grasping
of "territory without any -justification
whatever. ' 'Maintain, if you please,' that
any foreign power or any combination of
foreign powers should have come upon
our soil and have seized, first the har
bor of New York, and another power
should have taken the harbor of Boston,
and-a third the harbor of Baltimore and
the States of Maryland and Pennsylva
nia, with the great mining output; an
other power scheming what part to take
of Florida and Georgia, and another had
California, and the foreign press of all
these countries preaching up and down
the earth that the partition of our coun
try was impending, then, I ask you, what
would follow in the United States?
"When Russia first came over to Man
churia and took part of that, and Great
Britain then, In compensation, took the
port just opposite, and then Germany
came along and seized the best harbor on
the Pacific Coast, that of Kaio Chou,
and also seized control of all the con
cessions In a great province containing
40,000,000 of inhabitants, and France then
came along- for a slice of Southern China,
and Japan then said: 'I must have a
piece 'of It,' and even little Italy called
out for a part, and all the European press
far and wide proclaimed that the day
had come for the partition of China be
tween these nations I ask you if I have
overstated this when I say that no nation
that had a particle of self-respect would
endure such an aggression as that."
Then, after complimenting Secretary
Hay for his conduct of the affair, Pro
fessor Angeil said:
'I think the policy which they are en
deavoring to compel, of maintaining the
present government in power, is the wise
one. I do not believe that any other gov
ernment that can be put in power has
so good a chance of holding the control
of the country over its own subjects as
the present Emperor has, if he is pr6perly
maintained and Is not too much interfered
with by foreign powers.
"I cannot but think If the great pow
ers undertake to divide China, there is
great danger of a European war in the
scramble fo'r division, and that would be
a calamity certainly very great. I doubt
very much whether they could govern
that country in peace If they tried. Think
of Great Britain trying to govern tne
Yang-tse Valley, with more than 200,000,000
Inhabitants and 300 miles long, when we
remember what measure of success she
has Jiad with the little company of peo
ple down In South Africa. CLaughter.) I
doubt If she has much strength, for any
thing of-that kind now.
"I, therefore, most-profoundly trust that
the programme which our Government has
marked out may be successfully carried
out. I think It is the best -hope for the
future of China and of the world. '

BRITISH MISSION AT BERLIN.
Unusually Warm Reception by Em
BERLIN, April 9. At the reception to
day of the British special mission to an
nounce the death of Queen Victoria and
the accession of King Edward VII, Em
peror William wore a British Admiral's
uniform, with the Order of the Garter.
After the formal ceremonies were over,
his majesty conversed affably with each
member of the mission and then conduct
ed them to an adjacent room and intro
duced them to the Empress.
The ceremony of conducting the mission
to the palace was imposing. The Emperor
sent to fetch them three elaborately orn
mented court carriages, with gorgeously
liveried coachmen. The military depart
ment escort of the mission was from the
regiment of which the late Queen Victoria
was honorary Colonel. Tne police were
much In evidence, and kept the streets
clear of people 100 yards above and below
the Hotel Bristol and half way across
Unter den Linden This precaution Is
said to have been taken to avoid an un
seemly anti-British demonstration like
that of Sunday night, when, upon the ar
rival of the mission, a number of persons
crowded in front of the Hotel Bristol and
shouted, "Down with England," "Victory
for the Boers," which caused four or five
arrests to be made.
It was the first time in the history of
Prussia that such an honor as being es
corted to the palace in royal carriages
was paid to an Ambassador. A band of
music stationed In- the courtyard played
"God, Save the King," as the mission en
tered. His Majesty received the mission
with great ceremony. After the Duke of
Abercorn had handed King Edward's au
tograph letter to the Emperor and the
mission had been received In audience by
the Empress, the Duke of Abercorn and
his party were re-escorted to the Hotel
Bristol by the cavalry detachment. The
commissioners did not wholly escape a
demonstration of Anglophobelsm. There
were shouts of "Down with the English"
outside of the hotel, In spite of the strong
police force on duty in Its vicinity.
