As if in harmony with the day and
its mission, csterday was as delight
ful as could jKissibly have been de
sired, and there being but little wind,
the river was comparatively smooth.
At nine o'clock there were assembled
some -100 people or more, on the
steamer Jlaiizanita, the steamer
George II. JTendtU and barge No. 9,
which was towed by the latter, and all
slaited down the river.
On the deck of the capacious barge,
the engineer department had erected
seats, and these were occupied by
forty members of dishing Post, No.
1-i. G. A. li., and visiting comrades,
under command of C. A. May, post
commander. Co. II. First regiment,
O. N. G., under command of Capt.
"Wherity, were present in full uniform.
The drum corps in full uniform, and
the ladies of the YV. K. C. with their
badges, as well as many civilians, wero
passengers on the barge
On the Jlanzanita weie a large
number of ladies and gentlemen. The
trip to Fort Stevens was delightful
and enjoyed by all. The steamsliip
Michigan and the steamphip Colum
bia were met as they were coming
in, and both saluted with whistles and
the dipping of Hags, while passengers
waved their handkerchiefs, and hats
were swung in air.
The Manzanita arrived first and
landed her passengers at the pier at
Fort Stevens previous to the Jlenrfell
and barges. After all were safely on the
wharf, the line of march was taken up,
and to the music of the drum corp3,
Company H, the old soldiers, the Y.
It O. and several hundred citizens
proceeded to the soldiers' cemetery,
which is situated in a little opening in
the woods, in a sheltered nook, quiet,
retired and inviting, an appropriate
spot for the slumbers of departed he
roes. Grand old fir trees surround it,
like giant sentinels guarding the silent
camp, while wild flowers and ferns are
abundant, and in the distance can be
heard the beating of the waves upon
the shore, chanting a lasting requiem
as a fitting dirge for the brave men
whose sleep shall be undisturbed until
"the sublime celestial bugler shall ring
out the reveille."
lteaching the cemetery, three sides
of a hollow square were formed, one
composed of the militia, one of the
veterans and the other of the "W. R. C.
with a number of soldiers' graves in
the center.
The regular ritualistic service of the
G. A. K. for use in cemeteries on Me
morial day was then presented by
Commander May, Chaplain Grannis
and Officer of the day Hardesty. Ap
propriately introduced was tho glori
ous anthem "Nearer My God to Thee,"
and the patriotic hymn "America,"
led bv Comrade Winton and joined in
by all.
Every grave was then covered with
llowers, and on returning to the same
position, an address was delivered by
Comrade Thomas Dealey. He re
ferred to those who were buried there,
and who, with him had been present
in the early days of the settlement of
this county, and made a good speech,
which was well received.
He was followed by a short address
by Comrade Edward A. "Weed, who
referred to the militia present as a
sample or those who enlisted in 18G1
as young men, but are now tho old
veterans, to the many cemeteries where
graves are being decorated to-day, to
the lessons that have been derived
from the war, and paid a tribute to
woman's help in the dark days, and to
the "W. It. C. of the present lime.
Company "II" fired three volleys
over the graves, and leaving the silent
momids over the inanimate heroes,
the entire assemblage marched down
to the railroad track near the engineer
Here an agreeable surprise had been
provided, for Mr. G. B. Hegardt, the
assistant engineer in charge of the
jetty work had provided a train of
cars and the whole company were
treated to a ride on the railroad out
to the end of tho jetty, which is now
over 18,300 feet, or nearly 3 miles
straight out into the ocean It was a
grand and exhilarating ride, fully en
joj'ed by all, many of the party never
having experienced the pleasure be
fore, and all were grateful to Mr. Heg
ardt and his overseer J. "W. Stoneman,
for their kindness shown and personal
attendance in conducting the party.
To them and Major Haudbury, by
whose orders the steamer Jfendell
was furnished also the barge, with
scats all provided, to Capt W. "W.
Rhoadcs of the lighthouse department
for the free use of the JIanzaiiita as
an escort of honor, to Capt. Richard
sou and his officers, to Capt Brown
and the others who contributed to the
success of the excursion, the entire
company are greatly indebted, and
will always hold them in grateful
Returning from the ride to the cud
of the jetty the party all embarked on
the vessels, the G. A. R , AY. 1L U., Co.
H. and the drum corps comiug on the
Jfanzanita, and the civilians on the
Mendell and the barge arriving at
Astoria at 2 r. ix.
Taking time enough only for lunch,
the veterans and the ladies of the
Relief Corps, accompanied by several
hundred people went up to the
cemetery on the hill at the head of
West Ninth, street, and almost filled
the enclosure.
Here the same exercises were ren
dered as in the morning at Fort Ste
vens, being the ritualistic service of
the G. A. R. as provided in the book of
forms, for decorations in cemeteries.
Every mound which marks the resting
place of a "Union soldier was literally
covered with flowers, after which all
the visitors and participants returned
A very large audience was assem
cled in the opera house, every seat in
the main body being occupied, and the
gallery was well filled On the stage
were seated the members of the G. A.
R, in front of whom a small desk or
stand was placed On the base of this
were large boquets of flowers, as well
as on the top of the desk, and it was
covered with flags and adorned with
vines. In rear of the stage the elegant
sue nag oi uusning pose iormeu an
appropriate background for the veter
ans. By the side of the flag was a
large cross formed of choice flowers,
all the work of the fair hands of the
W. R. C. They occupied seats in the
boxes, on either side of the stage.
On a raised platform in front of the
stage, which was covered with Brussels
carpet and bordered with the national
colors, were an organ and a choir of
eight gentlemen and five ladies, as
follows : Mesdames C. W Fulton, Dr.
Fulton, Prael, Warren, Ross, Brice and
Pendleton, Messrs. Barker, Thompson,
Griffin, Campbell and Harris, with
Miss Bitely as organist
The exercises opened at 8 p.m., when
Commander May called on tho drum
corps, who occupied chairs directly in
front of the choir, between them and
tho audience. "With muffled drums
they gave a funeral dirge, and many a
veteran present was reminded by it of
the times when he had followed com
rades to the grave.
The choir sang an anthem, and sang
it well, after which a fervent and
patriotic praver was madebv Chaplain
G. "W. Grannis.
"Tramp, Tramp, Tramp," was sung
by the entire andience, led by Comrade
Winton and the choir, followed by the
complete public service of the G. A. R.
as laid down in the ritual for such
"Battle Hymn of the Republic" was
sung with a fervor which denoted
that the audience was decidedly pa
triotic Comrade A. G. Hardesty was intro
duced as the sneaker of the evening,
and delivered the following address.
One of the arguments used in favor
of the doctrine of man's immortality,
is the fact that of all animate creation,
only human beings bury their dead
Every tribe or race of people from
time immemorial, whether savage or
civilized, have laid their deceased
friends in the tomb, with a hope a
belief -that somewhere, at sometime,
they would see them and kuow them
as they had seen and known them.
"Know each other, who will quostion
Truths so sacred to tho heart,
When its cords are torn and bleeding
When its earthly hopes depart?
Christian love, how pure and sacred:
Who the parting scene could bear,
Did not mercy whisper gently,
Wo shall know each other there?"
In all ages, among all people who
have laid any claim to na
tional polity, there has ob
tained a custom of commemoratiug
in some manner tne me or acts or
heroism of some of their countrymen.
In some instances the glory of a hu
man life, (and conversely of its death)
becomes the property of a world
What man is there whose pulse
does not beat faster and whose heart
does not go out in sympathy at the
fate or Ireland's greatest
patriot, Robert Emmet? What
an argument for Freedom is the
story of his sacrifice! So too the
immolation of Jean of Arc, as well as
hundreds of others.
Costly monuments are erected over
the graves of dead heroes. Genera
tions tell in song and story the history
of their achievements. The story of
their lives impresses tho young listeners
so that they too as boys, when an
emergency arises, when the homes of
their sires the hearthstone is endan
geredspring to arms and uncon
sciously become heroes.
My mind recalls to- night, a scene
one of thousands of seven boys
standing around the chair of a mother
born among tho granite hills oE old
New England while she poured into
their willing ears tho story of how
brave General Warren fell. With her
they saw John Dawes and Paul Re
vere dash by on foaming steed. With
her they were transported to the field
of Lexington : Marched with tho minute-men
up" Breed's Hill: Saw patri
otic Putnam desert his pastoral pur
suits and volunteer to defend his na
tive land. They marched with their
forefathers in bare feet bleeding,
throuch the snows of Valley Forge.
They knelt besidelhe immortal Wash
ington as he prayed beneath tho leaf
less tree, sighing in the icy night
winds. They stood with the band of
patriots at Yorktown when Cornwallis
surrendered his sword to the one who
was "first in war, first in peace and
first in the hearts of his conutrymen."
These boys registered a vow that
when they reached manhood and
their country needed them that they
wonld emulate the heroes of the
revolution, and give their lives if
necessary to preserve inviolate tho
priceless heritage of a land of freedom.
Little did they then think that the
struggle for national life, the greatest
war of all history, would be fought in
their day and generation.
Our forefathers left the land of their
birth because of social and religious
intoleration. They braved tho dangers
of a voyage across the stormy Atlantic;
tlioy faced savages for the purpose of
establishing a country where all men
should be equal before tho law. They
believed that "worth makes the man
and the want of it, the felon." They
established a country where a man
could "worship God beneath his own
vine and fig tree, none daring to molest
or make afraid," with no priestly or
kingly sovereignty, save and except a
clear conscience, and an honest heart
They interpreted ecclesiastical and
political government for themselves.
In the fatherland they had learned
that lords and dukes were fallable
human beings. In their new homes
they learned that titles could be dis
pensed with altogether. Among the
first white settlers of this continent
there were a few who still clung to the
idea that birth, and not worth, made
the man that a few were born lords,
the many serfs. They settled south of
what was afterwards known as Mason
and Dixon's line. But as "truth
always comes uppermost and ever is
justice done," their hopes failed of
realization, aud although their sup
porters had become legion in 1SG1,
their doctrines culminated in treason
and rebellion.
They inaugurated a war "that
seriously affected tho financial and
industrial prosperity of tho country at
home and abread: that cost four
hundred thousand loyal lives; that
made three hundred thousand soldiers
and sailors cripples for life; and that
left more than a million devoted
mothers, widows, sisters and orphans
to mourn for their loved ones who did
not return." In this rebellion more
lives were lost than in any war of
which we have any record While in
the war between France and Germany,
began in 1807, only one soldier in
every 1,300 engaged, lost his life; yet
in our civil war one soldier in every
29 that participated in it, lost his life.
Eight of the Southern states alone,
lost more men than England lost in
all her wars during the last eight
centuries, or since the time of
William tho Conqueror. Although I
was in the army myself for nearly
three years, yet I can truthfully say
that I never as fully realized what an
enormous sacrifice of human life the
war of the rebellion caused, until I
stood but a fortnight ago with un
covered head in National cemetery at
Arlington near the city of Washing
ton by the graves of nearly 40,000 of
my countrymen. Think of it citizens of
Astoria, you might take all the men,
women and children in tms your
beautiful city by the sea, and multiply
them five time and you would scarcely
have more human beings than repose
in this one cemetery alone, and it is but
one of many. ,
Remember, they gave then: lires
that you might live in a free country.
One of the mottoes placed in this
city of the -dead I thought peculiarly
appropriate. It was as follews:
"YourNown proud land's heroic soil most
be your fitter grave,
She claims from war his richest spoil, tho
ashes of her brave."
Ridpath, in his history of the United
States, gives five reasons or causes for
the rebellion. It is not for us to discuss
the causes, but we mny speak of the re
sults. The side of oppression presented
to the world the bleeding backs
and aching hearts of four millions
of human beings. It taught tho doc
trine that "a negro had no rights that
a white man was bound to respect."
As early as 1832 it taught the doc
trines of nullification and secession.
It ordained an aristocracy that taught
that "laboring men are the mud sill of
society." And their leaders openly de
clared that they "would some day call
the roll of their slaves at the foot of
Bunker hill monument" It brought
forth as its leaders such beings as Jeff
Davis, Quantrell and Wirz. On the
other hand, the loyal people of the na
tion said that they knew no north, no
south, but one common country. It
gradually instilled into tho common
heart that labor was honorable and
that idleness was dishonorable. They
taught that the Declaration of Inde
pendence meant just what it said,
when it declared that "all men were
created free and equal."
They gave to tho world that great
American trinity, Washington, Lin
coln and Grant and in the hours of
its country's need they gave three and
one-half millions of men and three
billions of treasure.
The loyal soldiers sprang to arms
with a common impulse representing
all shades of political and religious
belief from all walks of life.
They kept tho flag of Washington
floating in tho breeze. They returned
it bathed in their own blood to their
countrymen without a star missing
from its azure field.
The story of their acts of heroism,
comes to us to-day "like the far off
chimes of silver bells on a summer
uvcuuig. j
The private soldier or the union
army knew as much of the needs of
the hour as did the generals who com
manded him.
When men do not love their hearths
nor reverence their thresholds, it is a
sign that they hnve dishonored both."

to tho teachings or a (Jhnsiian
After Garfield had taken the oath
of tho greatest office within the gift of
the American people, he bent down
and kissed the wrinkled cheek of his
gray-haired mother.
A comrade once told me that as he
was leaving the battle field just at
dusk, among the hundreds of dead and J
dying, he was attracted by the feeble (
attempts ot a uoy in ome wuo was
wounded in both arms, and whose life
blood had nearly all ebbed away to
gain his recognition. He stopped, and
KamuioicwjBuiuuii. xxu diuiu-vu, j.h
bending over tho wounded boy, asked
him what he could do for him. The
boy told him to open his blouse and
vest, and on the msido pocket he
would find a picture. He did so, and
on opening it before the wounded boy,
he fixed his failing eyesight on the
picture of two women, and said, with
a lisping and stammering tougue, "my
mother and wife."
Do you wonder that an army com
posed of such men were invincible?
The loyal women not only sympathized
with us and prayed for us, but worked
for us. The history ot the sanitary
commission and the visits of noble
women to the fields and hospitals and
their loving ministrations there tell of
her devotion better than could tho
picturesque pen aud an appeile3. And
now my comrades, because of tho
memories that cluster about the
heroic sacrifices of our comrades,
because we love to recall their names
and their deeds, we shall, as the years
go by, and until I we too shall no longer
be able to answer to roll call gather at
the graves of our comrades aud cover I
them over with beautiful llewers:
flowers, the alphabet of angels.

An anthem was rendered beautifully
by the choir, and Comrade Samnel
Elmore was called upon for an tiddress,
but declined, and stated that he had
arranged with Comrade Piatt to ap
pear for him, who read finelv Will
Carleton's brilliant and soul stirring
poem, "Our Army of the Dead"
An army song "When you and I
were young," was sung by Comrade
Winton, the choir joining in the cho
rus. Chaplain Grannis was called out
and made a brief address, calling as a
substitute Comrade Winton, who re
sponded promptly, giving reminis
cences of the war, including scenes of
departure from home. His remarks
were very earnest and forcible and
elicited considerable applause. He
aroused many slumbering recollections
of those stirring days by his allusion
to the active events of soldier life,
and urged grater fraternity among
the comrades. Depravity in politics
was strongly condemned and the
statement made that buying votes is
being continuously practiced here for
the approaching election.
(3omrade G. C. Hall was next upon
the programme for a brief address.
but stated that he had spoken so many
times on simiuar occasions, no wouta
call upon one whom many had not
heard but whom he had the pleasure
ot hearing this morning, and who he
was satisfied would be able to enter
tain, and that was his friend Major E.
A. Weed
Comrade Weed deemed it a work of
supererogation to attempt to add any
thing to the brilliant and eloquent
remarks of the speakers of the even
ing, for it would be like trying to
paint a lily or adorn a rose, and after
all the beautiful flowers of the day and
the flowery eloquence of the evening 1
it seemed in queer taste to attempt to
extract any fragrance or beauty from J
a Weed He referred to the peculiar
feelings aroused in the breasts of the
old soldiers by the celebration of such
days, spoke of the G. A. R.
which can have no recruits
and must soon be obliterated by
death, but hoped the celebration of
Memorial dav wonld be perpetuated
bv the W. R. C. and the loyal youth of
the land, now coming forward to fill
the places being rapidly jracated by
the veterans. Incidents of the war
were given and a compliment paid to
the bravery of the Confederates,
between whbmand the Union veterans
there is only the kindest feelings.
Loyal women and their noble deeds
were praised, and the claims of soldiers
strongly presented.
The choir and audience joined in
singing with hearty zeal "America,"
then the "Doxology," when the bene
diction was pronounced by Comrade
Rev. G. C. nail, and the meeting was
It was a decidedly interesting meet
ing, and the entire exercises of the day
were remarkably successful, reflecting
great credit upon the committee, Com
rades Grannis, Elmore, Brodie and
Winton, and enhanced wonderfully by
the valuable assistance of the W. It O,
as well as the cordial aid of Company
H and the Drum corps. Comrade
Samuel Elmore officiated very credit
ably as grand marshal of the day.
There were no clouds in the sky,
and no jar or hitch in the proceed
ings, consequently the day was cele
brated in such n' manner as to make
it long remembered as one among the
pleasant reminiscences hi the lives of
its many hundred participants.

The Way To Do It.
Chief Engineer Stockton's requisi

This is as it should be. Tun
AsTOKLVX has directed the attention of
the city authorities to this matter and
is of the opinion that it is better to
buy the horses in that way by city
money than to raise the reqnired
amount by contributions.

writer, in his woric " Skin Diseases," thus ac
counts for tho pimples so common to the
face and neck. Eatlns too rich or too greasy
food, or too hearty catins vrhilo tho ex
cretory organs arc sluggish, causes in most
people indigestion or a dyspcpsial condition,
yi hfch causes tho blood to movo iluggisbly,
and enfeebles tho pores. Tho result is, that

being a pimple. Dr. Fox therefore does not
prescribe " blood pnriflers" so called, bul a
" dyspepsia euro" to be taken, to uso his own
words "till the dyspepslal symptoms have
disappeared." Tho old idea was, that fac
eruptions were caused by a. " humor in thi
blood," for which they treated tho blood,
giving the mineral, potash. Joy's Vegetabla
Barsaparilla follows the modern ideas of Dr.
Fox, and aim3 with gentle vegetable altera
