pany. Front-Street Controversy Settijsd.
The controversy which has been raging
among the employes of certain commis
sion houses on Front street as to wheth
er a live Jish placed In a pan of water
would make the pan any heavier has
finally been settled. Thoee of the dis
putants who Insisted that the weight
would be Increased were In the minority.
-As they could produce no authority from
scientific works or elsewhere to sustain
their position, they had a rough time In
their disputes. Finally, It was decided
to make a practical test One of the
-minority secured the assistance of the
policeman on the Chinatown beat, and he
borrowed from a Chinese dealer In live
fish a large pan, a lot of water and a
live carp. The carp was placed In the
pan of water and carried to Seld Back's
-store, where the whole was weighed. The
weight was 48 pounds. The policeman,
who had known all his life that putting
fish In a, pan of water would not increase
the weight, pronounced the plan for test
ing the theory ""all foolishness," so when
Jxe lifted the carp out of the water and
the scale showed the weight to be four
pounds less, he fainted. The carp was
then weighed and tipped the scale at four
pounds exactly. When the result of the
experiment was announced to the Front
street gang they threw up the sponge, but
several of them immediately wanted to
het that If a man ate the carp for his'
breakfast he would weigh no more after
.breakfast than before. This will be de
cided as soon as a man willing and able
to eat a four-pound carp for breakfast
can be found.
Wild Pigeons a Uuisance. Pigeons
have made thomselves a nuisance about
several buildings in this city by establish
ing "roosts" and building nests on Inac
cessible cornices and keeping these pro
jections and the sidewalks In a filthy con
dition. As no other practicable manner
of getting rid of them has been discovered
they are to be shot. At the request of
the owners of the buildings Infested, a
sure-shot sportsman had been granted a
permit to shoot the birds. He gets out
about 5 o'clock in the morning and knocks

Portiands First Eicctric Launch.
Portlands first electric launch arrived a
ehori time ago and made a short trial
trip on the river the other day. It is
owned by J. C. Alnsworth. It Is 30 feet
long, beautifully fitted up, seated with
.arm chairs, furnished with a canopy top,
and operated by storage batteries. The
"batteries are located amldshlp. They serve
to ballast the craft. The motor Is aft and
connected with the shaft of the propeller.
The helmsman sits near the forward, and
has full control of the launch, which runs
from six to 10 miles an hour, the bat
teries being of sufficient capacity to main
tain this speed for five to six hours. The
river here is so well adapted to the use
of electric launches that more will doubt
lees be brought here. The cheapness and
.simplicity of operating electric launches,
their freedom from noise, smoke and cin
ders, and the absence of danger from ex
plosions, as well as the fact that they
are ready for use at a moment's notice,
make them desirable pleasure craft.
Salmon Season Opened. The salmon
fishing season opened at midnight last
night. It is safe to say that every fish
ermen and every fishing device on the
river which could be operated in the night
commenced business promptly on time, if
not before. As Sunday is not to be a
"close season." it te probable that nearly
every fisherman utilized yesterday, for
getting that it was out of the season.
Lovers of salmon will now be able to find
a good chinook In the market occasion
ally, but not very often, as the -cold-storage
and packing houses probably will
pay more for these fish than the market
men here care to give. From now on to
the close of the fishing season the motto
of every fisherman, seiner and trap man
on the Columbia and Its tributaries will
Tie, "Let no guilty salmon escape," .and
thoee that get away will not be numerous.
Removing Shade Trees. The last of the
maple ethade trees on Fifth street, be
tween Alder and Washington, has been
cut down. Their removal Improves the
appearance of the street. As a general
rule, shade trees are no desirable on
business streets, unless to shade some
shady business. A stone-paved street on
one side and a sidewalk on the other can
scarcely be considered suitable surround
ings for trees, yet the trees recently cut
down flourished as well, to all appear
ance, as ''green hay trees." One of the
trees was decayed to the heart, but it
was bourgeoning and preparing to litter
the street and sidewalks next Fall lh the
usual lavish style of maples. A few trees
are still left along Fifth, near Stark and
Yamhill, but it will not be long before
they will have to go.
Second-Street Improvement. Work
will be begun at once on the improve

commence sooner. The street will be
dressed to a smooth surface at grade and
paved with wooden blocks set on a layer
or cushion of sand. This will not be no
expensive as concrete foundation, but the
blocks will, doubtless, last longer than
those placed on a concrete foundation on

Mascot a Hoodoo Name. Since the
steamer Mascot's last exploit of sinking
herself, a number of friends of Mr. Kamm
have oeen joking him about the mistake
he made In naming her. The fact Is, Mr.

Eagle Fishes in the City. A hand
some bald eagle spends two or three hours
everj" morning catching fish at a place
within the city limits. In plain view of
the passengers on a trolley car line. He
perches on an oak tree near the shore of
a lake in which carp and catfish are plen
tiful. When his "eagle eye" espies a fish
In the shallow water near the shore, down
he swoops, and, seizing the fish in his
talons, flies back to the tree, where he
eats, and then watches for another vic
tim. The bird of freedom has chosen the
position well, as the tree is on the ex
treme end of a long peninsula, which no
one can approach without being visible
for half a mile. A man who longs for
the skin of the eagle. In order to have It
mounted, has laid his plans to kill the
bird. He has constructed an artfully de
signed blind In which to conceal himself.
He will hide himself there- early In the
morning before daylight so that the
f eagle cannot possibly see him going there.
He hopes to shoot the "proud bird or
freedom, all hall; the bird which no one
can inveigle, nor put salt on his beautiful
tall." He hid himself In his blind one
morning not long ago, but that morning
the eagle did not come to fish, and every-
1 body will hope that he will have business
elsewhere every morning the man goes to.
the blind. The only excuse the man has
for desiring to shoot the eagle Is that If
he doesn't some one else will.
Young Calves Sent to Market. A
butcher who received a number of car
casses of calves from a steamboat the
other day, finding that there were no
sweetbreads in any of them, accused the
men employed on the boat of stealing
them. One of the men replied that If
the butcher knew his business he would
know that none of the calves ever had
any sweetbreads in them. They were too
young, In fact, they were nothing but
"staggering bibs," some of them only
three or four days old, and not fit for
food. The butcher had no more to say.
It is understood that there is a law pro
hibiting the slaughtering of calves for
food In this city before they are three
weeks old, but many are killed much
younger, and sent in from the country.
The dairymen, as a general thing, are
anxious to get rid of the calves, so as to
have more milk and cream, but some say
It Is just as profitable to keep the calves
till they are five or six weeks old. One
dairyman from near Tancouver brought
in several fine large and fat "veals" a
few days ago. He got $14 for one of them,
which he said was more profitable than
killing the calf when it was three days

Professor Murphy Floors a Rival.
Professor John Murphy, a well-known
old-time resident and teacher of this city,
has the reputation of being able to read,
write and speak more langihrges,- ancient
and modern, than any other person in this
neck of woods. A short time ago a man
from the country undertook to show that
he knew more about the Irish language
than Professor Murphy. He knew a few
words and a sentence or two of the Irish
or Celtic language, but he was laid out In
a moment by the professor, who was not
only born and bred In Ireland, but has
studied four Irish grammars and commit
ted to memory every word In one of .them
which contains 766 pages. When at school
he was accustomed to take up a Greek
Testament and read it In Irish, or take
an Irish Testament and read It in Greek.
This made him familiar with both lan
guages, but was not such a feat as some
might Imagine, for every one knows there
is a great similarity between the Greeks
and the Irish. Any one who desires to
contest with Professor Murphy for the
championship as scholar of any language
will do well to try him on something be
sides Irish.
Tailors Use Electric Irons. Few per
sons would believe that the stringing of
electric wires through the city would ruin
the business of a Chinese charcoal burn
er out on the hills of Washington County,
but such is the case. An old Chinaman
who accumulated a small fortune by mak
ing nardwooa charcoal from vine maple,
hazel and dogwood, laboriously collected
and burned In a rude kiln constructed by
himself, sold out and returned to China
soon affer electricity came Into general
uso here. His principal customers were
tailors, who used the hardwood coal In
their box Irons. When they began to ueo
electric Irons, he saw that "the jig was
up," and sold out to another Chinaman.
The new proprietor prospered for a time,
but his trade gradually fell off; the hard
wood became more difficult to get, and the
price of his coal was cut down from 75
cents per sack to 50 cents. Now all white
tailors use the electric Irons, and the
Chinaman's only customers are the few
Chinese tailors still left who cling to
the old-style box irons, and he has no
prospect of making a fortune, like his
Young Car-Jumpers. The attention of
the authorities Is called to the dangerous
sport of small boys in the East Side rail
road yards. They jump on and off the
cars when In motion and at all kinds of
speed. They are particularly annoying
north of the Burnslde bridge. Their ages
range from 9 years up. Engineers and
trainmen are in constant dread of running
over them It Is only a few weeks ago
that a lad lost a foot near the Terminal
grounds on this side. The latest exploit
of the boys is to ride the brakebeam Dn
the morning south-bound passenger train,
drop off at why stations or Oregon City
and return In the same manner on the

Small Fire at Sunnyside. While Mrs.
Hannibal B. Keene, of 129 East Thirty
fifth street, was at church, yesterday, a
fire broke out In a second-story room of
her house. It was caused by a defective
flue. Mrs; Keene hurried home and found J
her neighbors fighting the flames and try
ing to save her household goods. A few
zealous people threw pictures and mirrors
out of a window. The Sunnyside fire
company worked hard, and prevented the
flames from spreading. The loss will
amount to about $400, covered by Insur
ance. The alarm was turned In from box
24S, at S o'clock.

His Father Warn in the Expedition
Against Quebec in the Revo
lutionary War.
Amos Thompson, who died Saturday at
the home of his son, Charles H. Thompson,
Mount Tabor, enjoyed the distinction of
having voted for Jackson In 182S, and for
McKlnley in 1300 His age was 93 years.
11 months and 18 days.
Mr. Thompson was born near Bath, Me.,
April 26, 1S07. His grandfather accom
panied Arnold's expedition to capture
Quebec, and was In the fight In which
General Montgomery was killed. His fath
er was a Lieutenant In the war of 1812.
In 1818 his parents moved to Belleville.
111., to make their home, and like many
other pioneers of that period, they lived
In a tent. Their stay In Illinois was
short, as, soon after settling In the
wilderness, Mr. Thompson's father died
on- a Monday, and his mother died three
days afterward. They were buried out
side their tent. Four children survived,
Amos Thompson being 11 years old when
his parents died. He was apprenticed to
a tanner, and afterwards became a car
penter and a farmer. He married Miss
Irene Charles, . of North Carolina, who
died In 1852.
Early In life Mr. Thompson was a Whig.
He continued with the party until the
organization of the Republican party In
1S56, after- which time he voted with the
Republicans. It was his proud boast that
he first voted for Andrew Jackson In 1828,
and had voted at every subsequent Presi
dential election since, having cast 19 bal
lots for" Presidents. Mr. Thompson was
Representative lor three terms in the
Illinois Legislature. He was personally
acquainted with "Stephen" A. Douglas and"
Abraham Lincoln. He became known as
a man whose word was as good as his
bond. ar.d In politics he was esteemed for
his strong common sense and probity.
Tn 1S96 he came to Oregon to live with
his son. Charles H. Thompson, and spend
the few remaining years of his life In rest
and quiet. At the Presidential election
last November, Mr. Thompson, assisted by
his sons, was able to walk most of the
distance to the polls and cast his vote.
He lived an abstemious life, and never in
dulged In Intoxicants, except for medici
nal purposes. He seldom used a cane
while walltlng, and'almost up to the day
of his death he read without using spec
tacles'. ,
One who knew Mr. Thompson well
writes: "While Mr. Thompson's educa
tional advantages In early life were lim
ited, he had a gcd mind and It was stored
with usptul and valuable Information. He
wa3 not a member of any church, but
was liberal In his views toward all de
nominations, and his motto was:
Teach me to feel another's woe
To hide the faults I see;
That mercy I to others show,
That mercy show to me.
"His life span covered almost the en
tire nineteenth century, with Its conflicts,
Its enterprise, civilization, Improvements
and Inventions, embracing steam, the tele
graph, the telephone, and the manifold
uses to which electricity has been made
to serve man. No one stood higher or' had
a better reputation In the communities
where he had lived than he."
Mr. Thompson Is survived by these chil
dren; Alonzo Thompson, of Fullerton,
Neb.; Mrs. Theophilus Harrison, of Colo
rado Springs, Colo.; Cyrus Thompson, of
Belleville, 111., and Charles H. Thompson,
of Mount Tabor, Or.' The body will be
taken tonight to Belleville, 111., for burial

Rev. TV. G. Eliot Protests Against
Y. M. C. A. Discrimination.
Of the $10,000 that the Salem Y. M. C. A.
Is raising for its building fund there ha3
been subscribed ?S092. One of the recent
contributions was $20 from Rev. W. G.
Eliot, Jr., pastor of the First Unitarian
Church of Salem. With the gift he sent
a letter of protest to the soliciting com
mittee of the Y. M. C. A., directed at
the exclusion of members of the Unita
rian churches from the full membership
in the Young Men's Christian Association,
which Is supposed to be undenominational.
The letter, which vigorously expresses hl3
position, follows:
"1 am happy to subscribe to the fund
which you are now engaged in raising
for a new building, but I ask that this
letter be made as public as the fact of
my subscription, because a close question
of principle Is Involved whenever a mem
ber of a ., "Unitarian church Is asked to
give In the cause you represent. Through
out the world, as you know, the Young
Men's'Chrlstlan Association excludes from
full membership any man who Is not a
member of a so-called 'evangelical
church. Under this rule, not all who
hold Unitarian views, but all members of
so-called Unitarian churches are accord
ingly excluded. And thus Is presented,
In this 20th century of grace, the spec
tacle of a world-wide organization call
ing Itself Christian and claiming to be
undenominational, but yet excluding from J
full membership Edward Everett Hale,
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Ralph
Waldo Emerson, James Martlneau. And
so It Is that when we Unitarians are
asked to give to the Y. M. C. A., we give
rather cheerlessly because we dislike to
appear ungenerous, or, oh the contrary,
on the ground of justice to ourselves and
the cause we represent, we decline to give,
and so are condemned and misunderstood.
. "To Illustrate the point still further and
In Its local bearings, I am told that In
the list of churches furnished the students j
at the university, among which they
must choose one which they must regu
larly attend, the name Df the Unitarian
church, of! which I am at present the
minister, has been purposely omitted. As
illustrative of the same general point, I
am of the impression that the Ministers'
Association of this city Is organized upon
such lines as to definitely exclude the
ministers of Unitarian churches.
"This Is enough to Illustrate. And what
I have said here of the Unitarian churches
la true in general also of several other
honorable branches of the Christian
church at large.
"But It seems to me that there Is a
greater principle at stake than the point
of justice which I have just set forth; and
to this greater principle I give precedence.
Perhaps, Indeed, It may be more rightly
called a larger aspect or truer statement
of the principle above designated. I refer
to the vital principle of Christian fellow
ship. In the light of this principle, and
provided I can afford to contribute, I ap
prehend that I am truer to the very prin
ciples which I conceive to be at stake If
I contribute than If I decline to do so. I
would so advise the members of the
church of which I am minister, provided
only that they do not subscribe at the
sacrifice of other obligations, and pro
vided also that they bo permitted, if they
so wish, to have attached to their names
on the list some word Indicative of the
kindly protest under which they give.
"It Is my earnest desire that nothing in
this letter should be construed so as to
convey anything but the kindest feeling
and Intention; and yet I truer I have
made clear the reason whywhat little I
can give must Include the protest with
which I cause it to be accompanied. That
you should approach me in this matter
challenges my best feelings of Christian
fellowship; and If you are willing to put
yourself thus In a position where you are
virtually permitting me to include you,
every Impulse of Christian sympathy com
pels me to make light of the faot that
you are excluding me."
Nevr Catholic Church to Be Bttllt oh
Eaflt Side. .
Archbishop Christie laid the corner
stone of the new Catholic Church of the
Sacred Heart, Milwaukle .and Boise
streets, East Side in the presence of 1000
K people yesterday afternoon. He was as
sisted by Rev. Charles J. O Rellly, Rev.
J. H. Black, Father ChistelH, Father Dft
Roo, Rev. William Kramer, the pastor,
Prior Adelhelm, of Mount Angel College,
and others. Father Kramer wag master of
ceremonies. The new church and the
school building are under the charge of
the Benedictine Fathers, of Mount Angel.
The basement of the church Is finished.
It was covered with rough boards yester
day for the accommodation of the audi
ence. When Archbishop Christie appeared, the
Southern Pacific Band, which was sta
tioned at the east end or the basement,
played several selections, The archbishop
was escorted to the platform, where a
large cross had been erected. After In
vocation the stone was laid. In the re
ceptacle was placed a brass box, contain
ing a document with the names of the
building committee G. I. Smith, F. M.
Dunn, V. B. Vesely and D. T. Sherrett
the pastor In charge, and Archbishop
Chlstle, and some facts concerning the
new building.
After the ceremony, ArchblBhop Christie
made a few remarks. He nald:
"I might refer at the opening of my
brief remarks, this afternoon, after laying
this corner-stone according- to the solemn
rites and. ceremonies or the Catholic
Church, to the enunciation of. Jesus
Christ: 'Upon thjs rock have r built my
church, and the hates of hell shall not
prevail against "it. That church, which
Jesus founded and endowed with author
ity, has spread throughout the earth, and
has withstood the shock of opposition and
persecution, and yot has continued to
stand .firm. It speaks today with the au
thority of Jesu3 Christ for the salvation
of all men. It is the church that has pre
served intact and without adulteration
the -teachings of the living Christ. It la
the church' that speaks with authority.
It speaks with authority on marriage,
and holds that whom God hath joined lio
man shall put asunder. It has Stood and
still stands on marriage and on moral
questions and commandments, where
Jesus stood, and declares in no doubtful
words that all shall heed the teachings
of Jesus or they must be lost. Along
this line the great Catholic church has
extended the pure gospel of JesUs Christ
throughout the earth, with authority.
"Of the 250 different church religions,
how many speak with authority? This
church which we represent at this corner
stone Jaylng has no Uncertain doctrine.
It hasalways been the pioneer in Chris
tian extension. Who has crossed the con
tinents and paddled up oUr rivers to re
mote districts, carrying, the gospel of
Jesus Christ? My brother priests, And
not for love of gold; but for the love of
soulp. So, in laying this corner-stone, we
have started a church that will be a part
of the great Catholic church, in which
will be celebrated th6 feast of Jesus
At the close of the archbishop's ad
dress Prior Adeihelm, of Mount Angel
College, delivered a sermon In German.
The church will be 42x80 feet. The steeple
will be 90 feet high from the sidewalk.
The church will cost $2500.

Same Lair Applies to Resident Hunt
era and Those from Idaho Out
siders Must Pay ?10.
An impression has prevailed among Ore
gon hunters that a law recently passed
In. Washington required them to pay a
license fee of $10 before they could hunt
In that state. Such Impression is incor
rect ,A.s near as can be ascertained from
reading the law relating to hunting passed
by the recent Washington Legislature, it
Imposes a fee of only $1 upon residents
of Oregon, Washington and Idaho, and
a fee of $10 upon residents of all other
In answer to many Inquiries received by
the Oregon Fish and Game Association
concerning the new game law of Washing
ton, particularly that portion relating to
license required of non-resident sports
men, Secretary Gebhardt has prepared the
following statement concerning the Wash
ington law. A bill was Introduced In the
Washington Legislature providing for a
license fee to be paid by non-resident
sportsmen or fishermen going Into that
state to fish for trout or other game
fish, but the bill failed to pass, and.
therefore, the old law of Washington In
regard to trout still obtains. But a new
game bill was passed and approved by
the Governor on March 18. Section 9 of It
Is as follows:
"Hereafter It shall be unlawful and It
Is hereby prohibited for any resident or
non-resident of this state (Washington)
of the age of 16 years or over, to hunt for,
pursue, take, catch or kill any of the
animals, fowls or birds protected by the
laws of this state (Washington) wlthQUt
Having in his possession at the time of
such taking, catching or killing, a license
therefor, duly issued to him by the Coun
ty Auditor In the county In which the said
person Is then hunting, which county
officer Is hereby authorized to issue such
license under the provisions of this act;
such license shall be numbered and dated,
and shall contain the namp and postofflce
address of the person to whom such li
cense shall be granted. All licenses pro
vided for In this act shall be issued as
follows: Upon application therefor by any
resident or non-resident of this state
(Washington) an animal license shall be
Issued by any County Auditor for the pur
pose of hunting for, pursuing, taking,
catching, or killing any of the animals,
fowls or birds protected by the laws of
this state, which shall entitle the holder
to hunt for, pursue, take, hunt, catch
or kill any of the said animals, fowls or
birds within the county wherein said li
cense Is issued for the term of one year
In any manner and wherever such hunting

the person killing the same shall pay
Into the County Treasury In which such
elk is killed the further sum of $20, which
shall he placed in the game protection

killing said elk shall be deemed guilty
of a mjsdemeanor and upon conviction
thereof shall be punished by a fine, of not
less than $10tnor more than $100, together
with -the cost of prosecution in such ac
tion." Secretary Gebhardt says of the Wash
ington law: "Inasmuch as the first men
tioned bill failed td pass, and the title
to the new game law does iot mention
fish, but refers .only to "Imposing a li
cense upon hunters," perhaps the fair
and reasonable interpretation of section
9 is that it applies only to hunters and
not to fishermen. ,
Dr. Gne Preaches to Battery A, Ore
gon National Guard.
Rev. G. W. Gue, pastor of Centenary
Methodist Church, East Side, preached
last night to Battery A, Oregon National
Guard. The members appeared In uni
form, and were given seats In the body
of the auditorium. One of the pleasing
-features of th'e evening services was the
solo, "Star-Spangled Banner," by Mrs. E.
S Miller. Dr. Gue spoke on "The Dis
ciplined Soldier," taking his text from
II Timothy, 11:4: "No man that w'arreth
ontangleth himself with the affairs of this
life'." He said:
"The Apostle Paul had great admiration
for the soldier character, and honorable
soldiers ard admired everywhere. , The
saviors of our Government were her vol
unteer, or citizen, soldiers, and a grander
class of men were never marshaled under
any flag. They were discriminated against
at the beginning of the Rebellion, but
they proved their valor on many well
fought fields and carried away the laurela
at the close of the strife.
"The past week to many of ua has been
memorable because Tuesday, April 9, was
the 36th anniversary of the surrender of
General R. R Lee and hlB army of 30,
000 men. which virtually closed the war.
Last Friday, April 12, commemorated the
fortieth anniversary of the firing on
Fort Sumter and the beginning of the
great Rebellion. Saturday evening, April
13, celebrated the storming of Spanish
Fort, opposite Mobile, being the last con
flict in which I was engaged and where
sounded the last guns of the Rebellion.
"The last time I Btood up to preach to
a company of young soldiers like your
selves was the first Sunday of August,
1865, in the City of Vicksburg, Miss. The
war was ended, our arms were laid aside,
the country was saved, and we were wait
ing transportation to our homes in the
North. Young men In age and appearance
somewhat like yourselves, but they had
had three years of awful experience, and
Were glad to retire from the field. When
we ehliBted we feared that we Wbuld never
have nn "opportunity to hear guns and see
a battle, but at the end of five months
we received such a baptism of shot and
shoil that we never prayed again for a
similar experience. It is likely you would
be pleased to have a taste of war. I hopo
you never wilt.
"Notwithstanding the distressed con
dition among the nations, I believe wo
are on the eve of the greatest peace the
world has. ever known. I hardly think
you will ever be tested on the field of
carnage, but the soldier character is as
much in demand in civil life as when
armies a,re marshaling for battle. Life
ltsdf IS a conflict and every true man
a soidltsr. I want to emphasise the state
ment of the text -tha.t 'no man that
warfeth pntangleth himself with the af
fairs of this life.' Singleness of purpose
should characterize every roan. How true
the saying, he Who is JacTc of all trades
ts master of none, if you are to be a
successful soldier that calling must pre
dominate, and the love of It must per
meate your whole being.
"When we answered oUr country's call
everything else was lAid aside business,
home, loved ohes and all. Young men,
have1 a purpose In life. Settle the ques
tion" of business, then stay with It. En
tangle not yourselves With everything else.
Be masters of your business. Don't let
it master you and lead you out beyond
your depth. So many men are rUlned in
business because they overreach. When
you choosb A wife, young man, be sure
she marries your business as well as you.
It Will be unfortunate If It is otherwise.
"Again, the well-disaiplihed soldier is
temperate In all things. Discipline In the
Army had to do not only with military
drill, but with what the men ate and
drank. It would have been a Godsend If
the officials In our Spanish War had
strictly adhered to thl3 principle. It would
have saved us from the disgrace of em- f
balmed beef, putrid canned meats and
the Army canteen, or saloon. The Chris
tian sentiment of this Nation has been
awfully outraged by the declaration of
the secular press that the canteen was a
military necessity; that Is. the Govern
ment had to follow our soldiers with a
well-stocked saloon to save the men from
greater corruption. If that Is true, then
In God's name this Army had better be
called home and send officers and men
with characters that are moral and habits
that are safe. We had no regimental sa
loons during the war of the Rebellion.
The orders were emnhaMr nhout the use
of liquors. Young men, now, as well as
In the Army, you need healthy bodies
and clear heads, and that you can't have
if you are prone to dissipation.
"Again, the well-dlsclpllned soldier Is
a man of courage. Uniforms and arms
will not give courage. Some of the great
est cowards I ever saw wore the blue and
carried the musket. Recklessness Is not
courage. A reckless man can no more
be depended upon than the coward. Cour
age can be cultivated. I knew of a man
In the Army who swooned away when
the battle opened, but later he became
one of the bravest of men.
"Young men, cultivate courage regard
ing the right, courage to stand for prin
ciple, even though It may be unpopular,
courage to treat everybody well, to be a
gentleman and to speak the truth. If
the Christian religion is right, then es
pouse it. Have the courage of your con
victions. You are sworn to defend your,
country's flag, but remember. 'The soul
Is more than parchment scroll, or flags
that winds unfold.' "
