Rev. H. B. Burgess Delivers an Appropri
ate Sermon in Memory of Henry Guy
Casket Containing the Remains Placed Under a Ueautilul Arch
at the Court House From 112 Until 12 1 M. and Is Viewed
hv Hundreds of Friends of Deceased.
TherVasket containing the remains
of tho dead patriot, Guy Livingston,
arrived in the city Saturday morn
ing, and whs escorted by a party of G.
A. K. veterans to the undertaking
rooms ol Streight & Streight. Owing
to the early hour and the uncertainty
of the arrival, there were few people
at tho depot. The casket, draped in a
large Ame ic.vn flag, remained at the
undertaking rooms until 9 o'clock, and
it was then taken to the home of the
mother of the deceased, Mrs. II. R.
Livingston. At noon the casket was
taken to th-i court hout-e and Dlaced
under a large arch whicn hadbeen
erected on t'no second floor eepacially
for th;it purpose. It was beautifully
decorated with flowers and bunting
and at the top bore the inscription:
"Tribute to a True Patriot"
Six memhers of Company B, Third
Nebraska, acted as guard of honor.
Hundreds of people filed through the
hillw.iyf all anxious to secure a
glimpse of the casket which contained
the rc-nviins of tho hero who had died
while defending the flag of his coun
try. Srrvlcm At Ihe Church.
As the clock chimed the hour of two,
the pall bearere, consisting of Frank
Johnson, Charles Searle, Merrit Kerr.
Clan nco Fry. F. J. Morgan and Thorn.
Walling, tenderly raised the casket
and carried) it to the hearse, which
conveyed it to St. ; Luke's church,
where the funeral services were held,
the young soldiers of the Nebraska
Home Guard following in military
array. Tho church was packed with
the former friends and neighbors of the
djparted gallant young soldier, and as
the corse was slowly borne up the
aisle, preceded by Rev. H. 13. Burgess,
the choir most alTectingly sang
"Nearer My God to Thee." The rector
then proceedtd with the burial service
in accordance 'with the ritual of the
Episcopal church, and. in his sermon
took for the text U mans XIV: 7, "Forj
None of Ut Liveth;to Himself and No
M tn Dieth to Himself."
After eulogizing the character of
the dec-jrised tho rector said that the
American soldier is now known every
where; and that brave Guy Livingston,
emulating tho example of his noble
father, forged to the front, not seeking
title or dignity, but that he was im- J
patient to enlist to help the oppressed
The rector then very appropriately
stated that he would let Guy preach
his own funeral oration, and then
quoted from the Memorial day address
prepired by Guy to have been deliv
ered on the Decoration day prior to
the year of his death. Among other
quotations he laid emphasis on the
following closing words of a beautiful,
eloquent and p Uriotic sentence: "To
die a soldier whs to live a life im
mortal." Guy most assuredly put the
philosophy of his own words into ac
tion. In concluding his sermon, the rector
paid a glowing tribute to the pure and
unse! fish patriotism of the brave young
soldier, whoso remains were wrapped
within the folds of grrnd "Old Glory."
The choir sang "Asleep in Jesus,"
"Jesus, L-jver of My Soul" and the
beautifu: memorial ode, written by Mr.
liurgess. entitled "Sleep, Soldiers
Sleep!" As the casket was being
borne from the church "America"
was rendered, with the whole congre
gation standing, with sorrow in their
hearts for tho gallant life given for

concluding services were performed
and as the mortal remains of theyoang

to a departed comrade.
A Biographical Sketch
Henry Guy Livingston, whose life
thj people of Nebraska are called upon
to mourn. Erst saw the light of day in
this city on the 11th day of November,
1859. He wa9 the son of General R. 11.
and Mrs. Anna Livingston, and was a
brother of Drs T. P, J. S. and R. R.
Livingston and of Mrs. Anna Britt and
Mrs. Jannette Clements. The family
from which this brave son of Nebraska
sprung had been distinguished since
the early days of the state, his father
having been one of the early settlers
of Nebraska territory and having
served ts a eoldier of the union in the
dark ar.d fateful days when rebellion
deluged the land. Later General Liv
ingston was honored by his fellow citi
zens of Nebraska with political prefer
ment and his services were in constant
demand by the political party with
which be had allied his fortunes. This
Dirty was the democratic, and in the
days when to be a democrat was to be
a ir out an alien in the land. General
Livingston reared this, the third of
his sons, in the faith of the party of
Jefferson and Jackson.
Such training naturally tended to fix
the channel of the life of the growing
boy, and, in the later years when Guy
had passed the school age, this bent
become pronounced, and he could lay
his life to the early training his father
had given him. And not alone in poli
tics was:the early training manifest.
It is related that the father, whose life
in the field had imparted and intensi
fied in him the military discip'ine,
which fcur years of active service
alone could bring, hadj given to his
household a rigorous system of rules
which resembled in a greit degree the
training of a military school. There
were roll calls at morning and, instead
of the bell calling the growing boys
from their slumbers, the roll of a drum
echoed throughout the halls and
roused them as their father had been
roused in the time of war.
And in this atmosphere it was but
natural that tho boy, Guy, should come
to view the life of the f oldier through
rosy glasses. The "pomp, pride and
circumstances of glorious war" was to
his growing eyes opened as an avenue
to fame unp jrishable and glory ever
lasting. No wonder then, that the
alarm of war broke upon him as the
culminating glory of career and as a
step toward the attainment of a record,
which would shine brighter and
brighter with the years, and which
should be treasured in the archives of
the family when the glories of a civic
life should fail.
In the early days of Guy's life the
trait of leadership, always peculiarly
one of his father's strongest and most
predominating features, was early
manifested in his disposition to take
the leadership in all matters which
were of common occurrence in schools
Among those who were the most ac
tive in the organization of club3 either
for athletic exercise or social inter
course, Guy Livingston was almost
sure to be looked to as the one to as
sume the active management and con
trol. His marked personality and in
dividuality impressed itself unfailingly
upon his comrades. Strong, rugged
and with a firm determination a will
that brooKed no fractious opposition
he ruled among his schoolmates with
an iron hand. Vet withal, he was
kind and gentle toward those of his
comrades who had the misfortune to
be weaker than he and never in all the
potty quarrels which are the accom
paniment of school life, did he take ad
vantage of those to whose views he
felt compelled to dissent
Mr. Livingston was a communicant
of St. Luke's Episcopal church and one
of the most influential members of the
parish. In his religious duties he dis
played the same steadfast earnestness
that marked his course in other walks
l life. A dutiful son of the church.
his loss falls hard upon the congrega
tion and his place will long go unfilled
A graduate of the Piattsmouth city
schools, Mr. Livingston later attended
the Northwestern university at Evan
ston. III., and took the law course at
the University of Michigan. Graduat
ing from the law school in the spring
of 1893 with high honors, Mr. Living
ston returned to this city and forming
a partnership with Messrs D. O.
Dwyer and Thomas Walling, he Hung
his shingle to the bree Z9, and in his
his new company he proceeded to en
ter upon the practice of his chosea
profession. The new 6m encountered
the viscissitudes cf struggling lawyers
and hfter having accumulated a fair
business, tho members decided to dis
solve the partnership and M . L'ving
ston entered upon the practice alone
As a concomitant to a successful law
practice Mr. Livingston called upon
the early training of his father and
took up the work of politics as an in
separable element of the lawyer's life.
Serving his party in the capacity of
committeeman, sec etary and chair
man of the party organization, be
found in the memorable campaign of
1894 when Col. W. J. Bryan and Sen
ator Thurston were opposing candi
dates for the United States senate, that
his party looked to him as one its
strong men who could carry its flag to
victory and despite the fact that the
outlook was gloomy for his party nnd
the prospects of victory remote, he ac
cepted a nomination at the hands of
the fusion its for the lower house of
the legislature and suffered defeat in
common with his party associates.
Returning again to his law practice
the young man fought with steady de
termination for the advancement
which he was slowly but surely attain
ing. In 1896 his 'participation tin the
campaign of that yeaf was most active
The innate patriotism of the man
was roused as the furyof.the sleeping
lion when the news flashed over the
wires that the American battle
ship Maine, had been sunk in Havana
harbor. At once Guy Livingston be
gan the preparations to take his
place in the advancing army. He or
ganized a company of volunteers in
this city and daily drilled them and
taught them the rudiments of war. It
was a fine set of men he had gathered
around him and he was easily the
pride of his company as well as their
idol. But fate willed that his brave
company was not to go as a body.
There was no place for them in the
regiments which the state was recruit
ing for service in the Indies and the
Philipines. When he vas informed
of this his regret was deep but it did
not deter him from seeking service as
a soldier in the ranks.
Well do the people of this city re
member when he in company with his
friends and compatriots, Frank H.

Sleep, Soldier, sleep! thy warfare o'er.
Thy sun hath set to rise no more;
Thine is an honest soldier's rest
Among" the bravest and the best!
Son of a noble Briton born,
Who bore the flag- amid the storm,
Fought for the Union long and well;
Through might like his, rebellion fell.
Thou noble son of noble sire,
From childhood trained in patriot fire,
A hero's lot was thine to be,
A soldier's grave, thy destiny!
So would we raise thy pean song
Among- the might3T, brave and strong-,
'Mid countless thousands yet to be.
Who yield their lives for liberty.
God's blessing on our patriot band.
Who stand for home for native land;
Our richest off'ring, Lord, to Thee.
The vanguard of humanity.
Wide as the sea at utmost bound,
From shore to shore the world around;
Our nation's flag-shall yet bring peace,
And freedom to mankind, surcease.
And every king from off his throne
Shall learn "that God is Lord alone;"
The whole round world he gives to men,
His highest earthly diadem!
Sleep, Soldier, sleep! thy warfare o'er,
Thy sun hath set to rise no more;
Thine is an honest soldier's rest,
Among- the bravest and the best.
H. B. Burgess.
Johnson, Charles Searles, B. C Jack,
Clarenee Fry and Merritt Kerr de
parted to link their fortunes with Col.
Bratt and the boys of the gallnnt First
Nebraska. In the city of Lincoln
these bravo types of American man
hood joined hands and went forth to
fight for their country and its cause.
This step was taken after consultation
by Mr. Livingston with his friends all
of whom strongly advised against his
enlistment as a private as most of them
felt that there would be ample room
for service later yet. To all he ex
pressed the fear that to linger behind
would be to lose any chance of active
service and that alone was what he de
sired to see.
Of his trip across the far Pacific and
his subsequent service during the
Spanish war much has been written
and it is part of the nation's history.
To recount again the gallant record of
the "Fighting First" Nebraska, would
be but to repeat history. Mustered as
a volunteer regiment to serve in the
time of its country's need, it remained
after the Spanish war had closed to
guard the new territory taken and to
protect American interests in the Phii
i pine islands.
In euch a position it felt the fi-st
blow that fell when the natives raised
the standard of rerolt and its gallant
sons fell first in the smoke of battle.
And among these sons, Plattsmouth
was called upon to lose the gallant sol
dier boy whose interment occurs today.
Stricken by the bullet of a sharp
shooter, Guy Livingston furnished one
of the first victims of the Philipino
war. From the testimony of those of
his comrades who returned to this city
it has been settled that his end was
painless, as the bullet had sped true to
its mark and when his comrades
reached him he was beyond aid.
So bis wish for an end like that of
the soldier true had come. As he had
livedsohedled-with his face to the
foe and striving to do his fluty as his
Guy Livingston had many friends
and no enemies. AfcvayB the same
with a boundless heart, with wide and
deep sympathy and love for his fellow

at his bier, and none of whom would
cast one shadow upon the lair fame of

Brave, earnest and true, his past
stands forth as the pat of an able and
honest man a man of courage and of
fidelity, of principles eminently demo
The lives of men are not ended when
the lamp of life ceases to burn, they

its somber mantle has closed about

offered to play for the eDginemen's

next Monday evening. In regard to
the matter, the State Journal says:
"P. I. Costollo, chairman of the gen
eral committee for the enginemen's
ball, received a message from Piatts
mouth last evening tendering the use
of the Plattsmouth band for the oc
casion. This is a band of twenty-five
pieces and is saiu to be an excellent
musical organization. The message
has not been replied to, but an answer
will be returned today. Tlrt band will
probably be invited to come. One
reason that made delay necessary in
answering was that the program for
the evening had been completely filled
before this offer was received. It re
quired considerable figuring to find a
place for more music"
