DEDICATED TO U. S. A.
fifty Thnnannd Feopl, Moat of lliem
Northern and Southern Veteran of tho
BMballlon. rroeot Patriotic Aldrs.
by Vlre I'resld.nt Stevenson and Othfir.
Chattanooga, Tenet., Sept. 30. Ons
of the most notable battlefields of tho
world that of I'hickamauga was
indicated here to-day as a park for the
edification of the American people for
U time. The dedication was conduct
ed by men who, thirty-two years ago,
foug-ht on that Held. Two generals,
with silver gray hair, who headed
thousands of men in the affray on op
posite bides, mado the principal
speeches at the dedication. They were
Generals John M. Pulmer ami John I!.
The ceremonies took place at Snod
Krass hill, whone sides for a mile were
to thickly covered with dead thirty,
two years ao that the survivors fiay
one could have walked from crest to
base, stopping from one prostrate body
to another. Fifty thousand people,
most of them veterans, witnessed the
T11K VICV: I'liFSIDlCXt's ADPRKHS.
Vice President A. E. Stevenson pre
sided over the dedicatory exercises and
was introduced by General John S.
b'ullcrtoD, chairman, of the Chicle a
mauga and Chattanooga national pari;.
He was greeted with mighty applause.
In the course of his nddress he said:
"Thirty-two years have passed, and
the survivors of that masterful day
victors and vanquished alike agfuin
meet on this memorable Held. Alus,
the splendid armies which rendez
voused here are now little more than
aproeession of shadows.
'On Famn's eternal rnmpiiiir ground
Their stlwnt tents are epremt,
While glory kuiIs with solemn round
'I'll bivouac ot ttia Uouii.'
"Our eyes now behold the sublime
spectacle of the honored survivors of
the great battle coming1 together upon
these heights once more. .They meet,
not in deadly conflict, but as brothers,
under one llag fellow citizens of a
common country all grateful to God
that in the Kupveme struggle tho gov
ernment of our fathers, our com
mon heritage, was triumphant, and
that to all of tne coming genera
tions of 4 our countrymen it will'
remain 'an indivisible union of
indestructible states.' Our dedication
to-day is but a ceremony. In the
words of the immortal Lincoln at
Gettysburg, 'liut in a larger sense we
cannot dedicate, we cannot conse
crate, we: cannot hallow this ground.
The brave men, living and dead, who
struggled here have consecrated it far
above our power to add or detract.'
I will detain you no longer 'from lis
tening to the eloquent words of those
who were participants in the bloody
struggle the sharers alike in its dau
ger and its glory.'
Prayer was offered by Bishop Guilor
of Tennessee. Then "America" was
sung by the audience, accompanied by
the band, and everyone of the tifty-and-odd
thousand people assembled
General John M. Palmer, tho vener
able senator from Illinois, made tho
first dedicatory address. When he
came forward his voice .was husky,
but never did he speak more earnestly.
At frequent intervals he was applaudvd
with vigor. He concluded as follows:
"To you who were Confederate sol
diers during all the weary struggles
of the civil war, 1 beg to say I was
Froud of your gallantry and courage,
never allowed myself to forget that
you were Americans, freely offering
your lives in defense of what you be
lieved to be your rights and in vindi
cation of your manhood. You who
are now satisfied that the result of the
civil war established the unity of the
powerful American republic, submit
ted your common controversies with
your fellow citizens to the arbitra
ment of the battlefield, and you ac
cepted the result with the sublime
fortitude worthy of all praise, and
your reward is that peace and order
are restored and the 'South' which you
love so well and for which you fought
so bravely now blossoms with abun
OENERAt GORDO O.V THK WAR.
After another patriotic song, Gener
al John li. Gordon of Georgia was in
troduced, lie was greeted with no less
applause than was accorded to Gener
al Palmer and he spoke with fully as
much enthusiasm, feeling and patriot
ism. In opening, he referred to tho
proposal of the late Charles Sumncrof
Massachusetts to strike from the bat
tle flag of tho republic all mementoes
of the civil war and dwelt upon thUus
a noblo proposal but one not needed.
Then he paid tribute to the men of the
North and South and to the wonder
ful recuperation of the once stricken
South. He declared that the Ameri
can civil war was an advance in the
cause of liberty Iwcauso among the
whole American people it augmented
and enabled the manhood aud woman
hood esscntiel to the future life
of the republic, because it de
veloped the spirit of self-stc-rlflce
and of consecration as these
virtues hsd never before been devel
oped since the days of Washington;
because while In no sense lessening
the self-respect of either, it vastly en
hanced tho respect of each for tho op
posite section: and it taught the world
that liberty and law could live in this
country even through interecine war,
and that this republic, though rent
In twain to-day, would be reunited t
morrow in stronger and more enduring
"Verily, my countrymen," General
Gordon went on, "It was' a" remarka
ble war in all respects; remarkable
for the similarity and elevation of
sentiment which inspired and the Im
pulse which guided it; remarkable for
the character of the combatants which
it enlisted and the death roll which it
recorded; but more remarkable for the
patriotic ferver which it evoked
and intensified among all people
and all sections; still more re
markable that each side fought
beneath the aegis of a wrttien
constitution with like limitations,
powers and guarantees, and that the
rallying ery which rang through the
ranks of the blue and gray was ' Lib
erty as bequeathed by the fathers;"
but far more remarkable -most re
markable of all for the legacy of a
broader fraternity and more complete
unity which it left to America. Is this
fraternity to last? Is this unity to en
dure? If 'yes,' theu liberty shall live
If 'no,' then the republic is doomed;
for in the womb of our country's fu
ture are mighty problems, instinct
with life and power and danger, to
solve which will call into requisition
all the statesmanship, all the patriot
ism, all the inn n hood and loyalty to
law "of all the sections.
"The patriotic American who loves
his country and its freedom and who
fails to discern these coming dangers,
and the urgency of united effort to
meet them is not a statesman; and the
statesman. If I may so characterize
him, who, realizing these dangers,
would still for personal or party ends
alienate the sections or classes, is but
half patriot. Perish then, forever per
ish from American minds and hearts
all distrust, all class and party and
sectional bigotry and alienation; but
live, long live, forever live, as the last
hope of the republic, mutual trust,
confidence, brotherhood and unity be
tween their children who are the "heirs
of their immortal honors. Forever
live the spirit which animated the
American congress and government in
making possible this inspiring hour;
and may the spirit of this hour abide
in the hearts, of our descendants
through all generations."
tiOVERVOR WHAifS B.H) MISHAP.
When the enthusiastic applause fol
lowing General Gordon's speech had
ended, the vast audience sang "Auld
Lang Syne.'1 A few short speeches
were made by distinguished visitors,
after which tho exercises were ad
journed. Governor W. II. L'pham of Wiscon
sin, while going up lookout mountain,
stepped upon the skirt of his daugh
ter's dress, causing him to fall. Une
leg was broken.
SENSATION BY ALTCELD.
Tlie Illinois Governor Talks on I'olitical
Chatta.noooa, Tenn.. Sept. 20.
Governor Altgeld, of Illinois, created
a sensation at the monument dedica
tion, the conclusion of his speech
being as follows:
"Instead of an armed force that we
can meet on the field there is to-day
on enemy that is invisible but every
where at work destroying our institu
tions; thnt enemy is corruption.
"It seeks to direct official action.it
dictates legislation aud endeavors to
control the construction of laws. It
seeks to control the press, to set fash
ions and shape public seutiment. It
has emasculated American politics and
places it on the low plane of jugglery.
"The tendency now is for political
parties to shirk principle and follow
expediency, and their platforms are
often drawn to evade or straddle every
"The idea now is to cajole rather
than convince; to ignore great wrongs
and wink at abuses; court the support
of conflicting interests though it in
volves the deception of one or both.
We are substituting office seeking and
office holding in place of real achieve
ment and instead of great careers in
public life; we are facing a harvest on
slippery, blear-eyed and empty medi
ocrity, which glides into oblivion with
out the assistance of death.
'.'To be an eligible candidate now
often means to stand for nothing in
particular and to represent no definite
principle, but be all things to ail men,
and in the end be contemptible.
Thirty-four years ago the call was for
men to fight an open enemy in the
field. To-day our country is calling
for men who will be true to our repub
lican institutions at home. Never be
fore did this republic call so loudly as
it does to-day for a strong, sturdy
manhood that will stand up defiantly
and dare to do right.
"For more than a decade tho ten
dency in this country has been toward
a colorless aud negative dilettanteism,
having the countenance of the Phar
isee with the greed of tho wolf, and
drawing all its inspirations from the
altar of concentrated and corrupting
wealth. Tho flag has been praised at
champagne dinners while the very
pole from which it floated was being
eaten off by corruption, ami republi
can institutions were being stabbed to
the vitals A new gospel has come
among us, according to which 'It is
mean to rob a hen roost of a hen, but
plundering thousands makes us gen
tlomen.' "My friends, the men of the past
did their duty. Shall we do ours?
They were asked to face death you
may have to faco calumny und obliv
ion. No man ever served his country
without being vilified, for all who
make a profit out of injustice will bo
your enemies, but as sure as the heav
ens are high and justice is eternal will
you triumph In the end "

It 1 Believed That Governor Culberaoi
Will Prevent the Fight.
AiSTis, Tex., Sept. 0. Governor
Culberson was seen in reference to
Judge Hurt's opinion at Dallas favor
able to prize-fighting. He refused to
express himself, but it is evident h
will Ignore the opinion and prevent
the fight. To bo prepared for
an adverse opinion he has
been looking up Governor Ross"
action on the Sullivan-KUrain fight,
which he prevented from coming off
in Texas. Governor Culberson has
had several copies of the order made,
and it is certain he proposes to pre
vent the fight.
Texas has a ranger force, controlled
and governed by special laws, and they
can be ordered anywhere in the state
by the governor without military red
tape regulations, and their special
firovinee is to prevent infraction of
aws. Governor Culberson will prob
ably use this force. Ross directed
sheriffs to call on the military, it
necessary, and Culberson's action un
mistakably indicates he will do thti
same and prevent the fight at all

Chicago, Sept. 20. Accordiug to tho
story told by Attorney A. D. Tenney
of Chicago, had W. W. Taylor, ex
treasurer of South Dakota, now under
sentence of five years in the peniten
tiary for his theft of $307,000 of tho
funds intrusted to his official care, not
lost his nerve and patience at the criti
cal hour and fled, his crime would in ,
all probability, never have been made
public, and he to-day would be a free
man. John T. McChesney of New
York, one of the ex-treasurer's bonds
men, was told of the shottage last De
cember, and, with Tenney, attempted
to secure the 1150,000 necessary to set
tle. One hundred thousand dollars
was quickly secured, but Taylor failed
in getting the last $50,000. McChesney
went to St. Paul to raise it, and while
he was there Taylor fled. Twenty
four hours later McChesney reached
Chicago with the money, but Taylor
had gone and the exposure followed.
