At the nineteenth annual reunion of
the society of the Army of the Cumber
land in Chicago an address of welcome
was delivered by Major A. F. Stephen
son of Chicago. Colonel Stone submit
ted the names of members who died dur
ing the year, and General Fullerton
made a motion that a member of the
society from each state be appointed to
consider the question of erecting an
equestrian monument in Washington in
honor of General Sheridan. General B.
A. Alger of Michigan delivered the fol
lowing eulogy on the late General Sher
idan: General Alger began his address with
a brief sketch of General Sheridan's life,
touching upon the circumstances of his
birth, his graduation at West Point,. his
service as lieutenant of infantry against
the Indians in Oregon and Washington
territories, his recall from the Pacific
coast iu the fall of 1861 and assignment
to duty as chief quartermaster at St
Louis, and noted that this great military
genius was not given independent com
mand till May 25, 1862, when Governor
Blair, of Michigan, appointed him colo
iel of the Second Michigan cavalry.
General Alger continued:
"He was a resolute man, and his com
mand soon learned the fact that unless
in camp two parties were in constant
danger the enemy and themselves, lie
was always genial and easily approached
except iu battle, when his whole nature
seemed to clinnge, and woe to the man
who crossed him while thi) fiht was ou.
Speakimj of the fact not a year since,
when told that he was always ugly iu
battle, lie leplied: 'I guess that was so;
it was the way I always felt.' "
Summing up the sketch of Sheridan's
methods iu preparation and in battle,
Alger said: "Such was the combina
tiona knowledge of the toxgraphy of
the country, the position and strength
of the enemy, quick perception and de
cision, heavy and rapid blows, which
gave him the snccess that crowned him
among the foremost generals of modern
history. Sheridan never lost a battle.
He seldom made an attack that was not
successful, and, like a mighty rock
standing in the sea, whose waves strike
it only to lie divided and shattered, so
the enemy's host was ever hurled upon
his command but to he broken. Those
who saw a handful of men defeat ten
times their number at Uooneville; those
who stood in the cedar brakes at Stone
river and witnessed the repulse of the
proudest army ever sent by the rebels
to the west; those who were with him in
the seven miles of fire at Mission liidge;
those who were with him in that hill of
fire in the Wilderness, or served under
him in the great cavalry fights of the
Yellow Tavern and Trevilliau station;
those who passed with him through the
terrible battle of Winchester; those who
helped to demolish Early's victorious
army at Cedar Creek, and those who
followed him ut Five Forks, all joined
in acclaim as each victory in turn in
creased his bewildering fame, crowning
him with the plaudit of the world.
"One of the strong characteristics of
uenerai onermau was his intense devo
tion to the cause of the north. Soldier-
e be
lieved intensely that the rebellion was a
crime, ana that it ought to be punished.
It was this intense earnestness that made
his success. Fii appearance upon the
field at any ''.ae during the battle al
ways created the wildest enthusiasm.
He handled a regiment as though it was
an army, and an army was managed by
him as though it were a regiment."
After quoting Grant's and Sherman's
opinions of Sheridan, the speaker said:
"Sheridan's part in the war was so
prominent that it attracted attention at
once, and became a theme for poets, art
ists, and historians to dwell upon. Oth

and died hoping that future generations

rates between those poinw
rates which it could afford to ace r to

line there would be greater charg.w
made upon a shorter haul than upon

ted "that if complaint should be made of
this it would undertake to justify its ac

The commission thereupon made order
for a hearing at Dubuque, at which this
eon.ny would be called upon to j"ti

so that other conianies interested, and
also any commercial organisations, oi
any other party desiring to be heard,

strongly to show that the liurlingiou &
Northern, on the rates it wo making
was not paving operating exiwnses. The
Chicago. Milwaukee & St. Paul road also
apK'ured and offered similar evidence,
taking a similar position to that of the
r.'uiuimleltt romoanv.
The Burlington Northern, on the
other hand, was represented by Its gen
eral officers, and insisted that its rates
nern remunerative, ami showed that it
was accepting them without making at
any iioint a greater charge upon the
shorter haul. 'I he evidence that its re
ceipts were sufficient to cover operating
exiieuses was not very strong, and it
clearly apwred that for the current
vear it was falling behind. Respondent
company insisted that the commission
should either sanction tho rate it wa
making to intermediate stations between
its termini, which were rates fair tn
themselves, or that it should order the
lliirlington k Northern to increase iU
rates between Chicago and Kt, Paul and
Minneapolis so as to make them just and
reasonable to the carriers themselves at
well as to the public. Jn other word,
to make them fairly remunerative; and
it was insisted that the provision of the
niter-state commerce law, that nil
charges shall be reasonable and just, was
not complied with unless they were r. a
somiblc and just, considered from the
standpoint of the railroad company as
well as from that of tho general public,
Tho iiiulington k Northwestern, it was
therefore contended, was in constant vio
lanon oi lueinier-siaic commerce law in
making rates so low that neither itself
nor its rivals could accept them without
a sternly and destructive drain upon its
The principal question, therefore,
raised before the commission at the
hearing was whether it bad tho power to
com)tl tho Burlington A: Northern to
increase its rates to a remunerative
point if they are found to bo below that
point. This question is discussed in
the opinion. The commission disclaims
possessing any such power. It holds
that congress, in tho provision requir
ing all rates to be reasonable and lust
was legislating for the protection of the
general public, aud not for the protec
tion of the railroad companies against
the action of their own managers, or
against the unreasonable competition of
rivals, and that it was never in contem
plation of congress that it should be
within the power of the commission to
order an increase in rates which, in its
opinion, ought to huvo Wu made
higher than they were. Jn this respect
it was supposed that the railroad com
panies had ample remedy in their own
hands, iu the authority which they pos
sessed to innke rates, and that tho pro
tection needed from tho government
was the protection of those who would
be compelled to pay tho rates that
should thus bo made.
