Tho flag drill by thirty children, of
the North school, was well presented,
and eamo nearer pleating the entire
large audience than any other feature.
The whole event, with one exception,
was a grand tribute to the patriotism and
valor of the order of old soldiers which
conducted the exercises. Tho people
turned out in throngs to honor tho
dead and tho living heroes, thus dem
onstrating by their acts, and not by
mere professions, their lovo and rever

country's call in tho 'llO's.
Tho one thing to mar tho evonlng's
program, (and tho true veterans were
not resiMjusiblo for that,) wuh tho ex
hibition made of himself, by
tho imported speaker of the
evening. Why ho was invited
for this sacred "occasion Ih known
to no one except the committee, for he
was certainly not wanted by tho' public.
It is well known hero hi Suloin that
that gentleman is a sensationalist and a
trouble maker, and he was last evening
true to his record, as usual at the
oxouso of the feelings ami good uamo
of tho the noble organization which he
had the high honor to speak for.
Tho Bpeakor reached his climax in ac
cusing tho order of Woodmen with
desecrating memorial day by Joining in
its observance at Portland. Do referred
to tho fact that tho Portland was deco.
rated largely In tho colors of the Wood
men as well uh tho "red, white and
blue," screeched himself h'oarso with
theso werds: "It Is tho height of sac
rclige, treason personified, for any per
son, society, or orgonization, to lay
hands on this day (Decoration Day) mid
appropriate the same for profit to them
selves." These and other expressions which
the reverend gentleman wound himself
HP to deliver were not only improper, but
I offensive, and showed an utter lack of
judgment, good taste and refinement.
If the Woodmen of tho World were
guilty of any wiong iu accepting an In
vitation to go to Portland at tho hands
of the Grand Army organizations it was
not proper to use such an occasion to de
The facts about the Woodmen of tho
World excursion to Portland are that
they were Invited there by tho (J.
A. R. orders of that city, who havo
undertaken to raise funds for a monu
ment for the Oregon volunteers iu tho
Spanish war. Tho Woodmen ure help
ing to take care of soldier boys at the
(rout and at home and of their families,
and within projier lwunds had a right
o observe Memorial day. y

The Woodmen of the World are a numer
ous, patriotic and public spirited class of

themselves, but they should lie given
definitely to understand that neither the
