An Eloqttcst Tribute Delivered at the
Recent Memorial Service by Rev. L.
Myron Boozer.
. During the recent memorial service
held in this city in reepeel to William
McKinlev, the following paper was read
by Kev. L. Myron Boozer. At our re
quest ear readers will have the pnv-
elege of reading it in theae culums:
"It is not neceesary for me to have-a
telpjrram from Paris or San Francisco to
know liow my fellow-mtn feel when
any crtat event happens." Thus epnko
Henry Ward Beecher. Today, each pa
tnot places Ins band upon bis own
bosom and in the beating of nis own tor-
rowing heart feels the throbbing ! a na
tion's pulse as a mourning nation bends
weeping over her noble dead.
William McKinlev, our honored, our
well-beloved president, is dead. Nay,
patriot, stay not the burning tear-drop
in its fall ; stifle not the sob that shakes
the manly breast. Grief too deep, sor
row too profonnd, does not exist for such
an bonr as this. A prince among men
has fallen. The foul red hand of an
archy has done its worst and a new name
is emblazoned on the scroll reserved for
the nation's heroes, whose most precious
life blood has dyed the altar of liberty,
To the executive chair of the nation
Mr. McKiuTey brought a wealth of ex
perience, a eturdiness of character, an
evenness of disposition, simplicity of
manners, and fidelity to purpose, such as
is perhaps without its equal among those
who preceeded him in its high honors.
His executive life during the years in
which he guided a nation's course, forms
a chapter in history to which fair Colum
bia will ever point with pride justified
by the life writ therein. The brilliancy
of his administration may dim as years
roll on, but the achievements, the stu
pendous labors of the tireless chief, no
storm may wreck, no ravage of time de
stroy. As long as lives our nation Wil
liam McKinley's name shall hold hon
ored place with .Washington, Lincoln
and Garfield.
As president, Mr. McKinley has prov
en himself ever to be the man for the
hour. History has been of rapid making
and startling changes in the recent past.
Crises) graver than since the early 60's,
have tried ths stability of onr institutions
and challenged the sagacity of our coun
try's statesmen. -Expansion, previden
tial perhaps, has been the key-note of
recent years, projecting our nation into
untried regions of national life and
action. Yet did onr President not come
short. His great powers could com pats
the -journeys of the flag and his great
heart had aSection sufficient to receive
into his national family the misguided
Filipino, the down trodden Cuban and
the needy Porto Rican . j
When our good ship Maine found a
resting place beneath the waters of Ha
vana harbor and our brave sons, by en
emy's treachery, went down to death, the
whole land cried out for1 war. Public
opinion ran high, and only the calmest
judgement could avert the precipalion of
national disaster- Who of us doe3 not
remember with just and patriotic pride
how our fallen Chief, grasped firmer the
helm ot Btate and looking straight before
into the gathering tumultous clouds of
war, trembled not nor paled in that try
ing hour? Never did his splendid per
sonality so dominate the Nation as then.
His calmness cooled the war fever that
coursed so madly through a nation's
veins, and when at last bis hand un
leashed the dogs of war, each
mow was a victory, -and his wis
dom was fully justified by the res alts.
So in every crisis, were it small or great
our President did with his might what
his hand found to do. Well does Ber
thold Auerbach say: "The main token
of a strong character is not to make
known every change and phase in thought
and feeling.but to give the world the
bnished results. Many details of his
life will remain unknown, but we behold
the finished works. . Finished ? Yes,
though cut off in the full noontide of his
glory, his was the mastery of detail that
made every day complete and earned
the plaudit,' "Well donet"
Mr, McKinley as -President most clear
ly demonstrated that the highest type of
American manhood is not incongruous
with American politics.
Timely indeed is this lesson. : Mr.
McKinley brought ' to the execu
tive chair a manhood unsullied by the
marks of political trickery, untarnished
by the moral leprosy that eats at the
yitals of so many of the public men of the
day. His life, official and private, has
exercised fa purifying influence on .his
party and American politics in general.
that should warn the office seeker of the
future, and prove a safe guide board for
the citizen voter in a choice of future ex
Spurgeon says, "Man's best powers
poiut him Godward." William McKin
ley, had great powers, and unerringly
they led his thoughts -Godward. His
soul beheld the infinite ideals and press
ed forward. As lus political career
opened before him, his soul kept pace
with the crowding honors, and Mr. Mc
Kinley, the man, ever towered above the
gathered trophies of his victorious life.
Like lofty mountain we behold him.
About its base the cloudy draperies of af
fection entwined by loving hands; bear
ing the mighty forests that bespeak years
of earnest labor; seamed and scarred by
many a ravine that tells of battles fought
and victories -won. But high above in
the clean searching light of God glistens
the ermine robe of his manly purity,
and as life's sun dropped behind his
western hills, the Inst beam transfigured
that great sonl, God's smile and benedic
tion burst 'upon him as he closed his
eyes on earth saying "His will be done."
