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 ecutives. 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." The great life closed, the great heart stilled ean belong to none other than those of whom Byron sings in words so true:! - ' - - . y . ... "The great of old! The dead but sceptered sovereigns who still rule - -. ' Our spirits from their urns!" - Strange though it is, "It seems to be a part of the diviae Providenee that every marked advance in national as in indi vidual life must begin amidst the throes of tumultuous and conflicting emotion The President is dead, But duty beet ons each patriot forward to meet the duties of the hour. "Sit not like a mourner, brother! by the grave of that dear Past. lr.row me-present! "tis thy servant only when 'tis overcast. Give battle to the leagued' world : if thou art worthv, truly brave. Thou shalt make the hardest cjreum stance a helper or a slave : As when the thunder wraps the scttinz sun, he struggles, glows with ire, Rifts the gloom with golden furrows, with a hundred bursts of fire, Melts the black and thunderous mass es to the sphere of rosy light, There on edge of glowing Heaven 6miles in triumph on the night." Citizens' League Meeting. Ths citizens league held a meeting at the court fiansa Sat urday evening, .
