" Eternal Vigilance is
By Iter. JT. D. Palls.
Tkxt: 3d Timothy, i:1.
l have fooffht a good fight.'
These words are from tho lipn of the
apostle rani. They Bammarize his life as
a Christian soldier. In Baying, "I hare
fought a good fight" he means that he
has been lojal, deroted and aggresshre in
maintaining and adrancing his 8Tior'a
truth and kingdom.
"I hare fosght a geod fight" is a su
perb Bmnmary of a life, and he who can
truthfully say it pronounces on himself
the imperial enconium of living. Panl
has spoken justly of himsolf . This sum
mary baa no flavor of egotism. The
magnificent life which stands behind it
vindicates it from boastfolnesa and at
tests its truthfulness.
Fan! is worthy of this tribute. It is
the honor due him an a soldier of the
cross of Jeans Christ, and we sanction his
claim, we echo the plaudit, sayinp, "Yes,
Brother Paul, thou has fought a good
fight, and it shall be a memorial to thee
through all coming eternities."
But next to the soldier of Christianity
stands the soldier of nationality. It is
the acme of glory to say "I have fonght a
good fight for the cross." Bat the next
thing in glory is to say, I hare fought a
good fight for my flag.
That is the purpose of this gathering
today. We are come to commemorate
our national sailors and soldiers, oar he
roes, those who gallantly fought and glor
ious died for flag and constitution and
country. If they fought a good fight,
then this occasion is significant. It is a
beautiful expression of gratltnde and a
righteous hoaoring of noble patriotism.
Was their fight a good fight? I think
there aro none who seriously question
that now. The war for the Union needs
no vindication, certainly not to those who
witneesed and participated in its ongoing
history from the Northern side. And
even those who were on the opposite
Bide in opinion or arms, now that the
mists of political and sectional prejudice
kavo passed away are regarding it as
both right and just And we are quite
sure that when the white light of impar
tial history shall illuminate it causes
and methods and aims, it will stand jus
tified to ail mankind as n righteous and
patriotic war.
Still, on an occasion such as this it ia
eminently appropriate to review the
question ''Was the war for the Union a
good fight?
Our purpose in raising the question is
not so much with the view of imparting
information, as to stir your memories
and to show that the wreaths we weave
for our heroes brows ore worthy. Nor
do we wish in stirring your memories to
awaken animosities ovor the past and
gone. We come to the review, "With
charity for all and nialico towards none"
to show if we can, 'that in the fight for
tho Union, tho boys in bluo made a good
fight. There aro several aspects in
which the war for the Union was a good
To turn one aspect sharply to view we
say that in the war for the Union the
character of the fighting was good.
Why, do we say when two men face
and batter and bruise each other in the
manly art of self defense, as they call it,
that is brutal? Or when the Indian
tomahawks and scalps his enemy,
that is savagery? And then when two
armies meet and shoot each other to death
that is glorious? Why, simply because
you recognize the ethical element in
fighting, you distinguish between good
and bad fighting. You know the differ
ence between savagery and civilization
infigthing. And you know that tho
quantity of the ethics you pack into a
fight determines the quality and enhanc
es the merit of the fighting. Cromwell
and his Old Ironsides poised victory aad
march gloriously through history as in
vincibles because they made God and
the Bible as the Guidons of battle.
And that is the reason why our battle
for the Union was a good fighL We
recognised God. The Bible was a lamp
to our feet and a light to our path. We
had brains behind our muskets and
sabres, and moral conviction in every
shot tired and in every stroke that felL
In a swift review of history, ww nay
recall Iieonadea and Alexander and
Cteear and Wellington andNapoleom aad
Moltke and their magnificent campaign
and armies, Thermopyle, Marathoa, Ar
belaand Blenheim and Waterloo and
Sedan as historic battles.
And yet we find no generals, bo cam
paigns, bo battles and no armies more
grand or scientific or brave and cairal-
ric than ours ol the Union. Nor is this
opinion to be regarded as aa expression
of partisan partiality and pride. Itie

genera aaa aim us ana taetr oruuaai
achievements. Weareaot saytag that
there are bo spots on the disk et this
luminous sua, we only say taat they
fail to obscure ttaflamiaf brilliaaoe. W
remember that "there were times of
panic, times of retreat, timatet dettat
aad times whea oar foe of kindred blood
and mettle gained briHiaat triamahs,
still we say that the white

Red Cloud, Webster County,
composed our armies. The Poet des
cribes it well in saying,
"No taougat of flls'it.
Nose of retreat, no unbecooilBf deed
That argued fear, eat one himself relied,
A' In his arm tbe moment lay
Of victory."
We might pause here and prove the
fighting good by detail of campaigns and
descriptions of battles, only we know not
where to begin. As we contemplate the
glory, its brightness is dazzling and we
are unable to select tbe peerless ray. We
might speak of Antietam with its four
miles of battle, and call it the Golgotha
of the war. We might say that at Get
tysberg the struggle reached its highest
point and that there broke the fiery
crest of the decisive battle, and that
Vicksburg struck the blow that sent the
confederacy reeling to its doomed des
truction. But comparisons are invidious.
Every battle was pivotal and decisive
and all were glorioup, and each one,
whether on the mountain top conspicu
ous or in the valley obscure, on land or
water, from first Bull Run to tbe final
Appomattox was beneficent to the Union
and contributed to national victory and
honor and glory.
We might make a further pause and
do honor to the peerless number of lead
ers. We might lift up Grant, Sherman,
Sheridan, Farragut, Porter and Terry to
your view, but that again would be in
vidious. They are only a conspicuous
few in a royal line of officers and privates
who are equally deserving. Each and all
have a peculiar splendor of their own,
that none other in the resplendent gal
axy can dim.
Bat we must return to the splendor of
the fighting. One beam of its splendor
was that it was volunteer fighting. The
Hessian and the conscript had a small
place ia our armies. The Persian whip
and its snapping lash were unnecessary
to push the fighting of the boys in blue.
In the recruiting and the fighting the ir
enthusiasm cried "Here am I, send me."
That fact is illuminated when we recall
the truth that out of twenty-five millions
of population in the North 239,132 en
listed in the four years of the war. And
then how is the splendor enhanced when
we reflect sadly that we laid 289,730 sol
diers on the altar of death in the four
years of fighting.
But the imperial splendors bursts
forth when we remember that it was
patriotic fighting. Fatherland filled
and thrilled their hearts. They said:
"My aative country tbee.
Land of the noble free,
v TJiy name I lore."
The uprising, the enllstneats, the girding for
battle and tbe struggle for victory were all In
spired by that lore. It was a contest not of
regular amies, nor of mercenary levies to
gratify dynastic anbltloa, to extend empire
and secure martial glory so tomasesi in the
old world, but of republican ertlzeas self orgus
Iwsl Into military heste's to bold and msJntala
the national domain bcqueUied to them br
their revolutionary fathers. Is tbe better
sense, it was not an offensive war. It was sim
ply ttcfenslre of tbe nattaul territory and auth
ority against secession and treason under the
sancUons of tbe constitution and tbe preced
ents of the tuition. Some hare assigned it
other objects and affirmed It as aggresiirely
nimed at the institution of sUrcryas fostered
by tbe South.
But while the conscience of the North regard
ed slavery as a national ?ln, one which In both
justice and mercy ought to hare been elimina
ted from the aattoaal life, nererthetesa the war
was not alined at Its destruction. The war was
simply defeiutreef tbe Union. The South was
aggresslre. She forced the war upon us.
The North conki do no otherwise than Ight.
llerearnlest desire was to do otherwise. She
held out the olive branch and urged its accep
tance. She was willing to arbitrate. She en
tered the react) congress. She considered the
Crittenden resolutions. Hhe offered every corn
promise that honorable magnanimity could
suggest, but the Southern Oligarchy was Implac
able and defeated atl efforts for a peaceful ad
justment. And after all peaceful overtures
were rejected by the Sooth, even then patriot
ism sat In silence and wailed with folded arms
unUI tlie war challense came by the wanton
assault on 8emrer.
Tbm. bat not till thra, did the war storm
burst over the North. Tbes, whea patience
ceased to be longer a virtue. Northern patriot
ism arose and ald with Kttfas Cheat "We
join oursHres with no party that dees not carry
the tag and keep step to the music of the
Union." Then they responded to Mr. Lincoln's
call for troops saying In echo te Asderew Jack
son, "The federal Uckm shall be preserved."

done bravely, honerahly aad glortowslr. Surely

Neb., Friday, Junk 12,
That was Its highest hope and iuter.Uon wheu
It came Into power. While slavery was rvoog
alzed as a gross Infringement of mans' natural
rights, and a strange Inconsistency with our
Declaration of national independence and a
wicked system of Inhumanity. Still it Massa
cred la tbe limits of the constitution. Mr. Lin
coln la his Irst Inaugural tells us . He says
"I hae no pun10! directly or indirectly to lu
terfrr with the insUtutiin of slavery I" the
sUtcs wVcre it ciiata," "1 belleb I have uo
lawful right to do so and I hate no inclination
to do so. Those ulio nominated aud elected
me, did so with the full know let! go that I had
made this and many similar declarations and
bad never recanted thrn I now reiterate
these sentiments ami in doing m, I only prrss
on the public attention the most ooiicluiheevl
dence of which the awe Is susceptible, that the
property, peaco and necuiily of no section are
in anywise endangered by the now Incoming ad
ministration." Thwx: utterances unsuhucully
Indicate thai the star was not waxed to abolUh
slarery. Toaarethe L'nlouas it then existed
was the first and prime and only dolga of
the war at Its Inauguration. The snhationot
the Union was the heart of the contention, and
to save It It was w Ithout repard to other Inter
ests. Mr. Lincoln lucidly outlines that in his
great "JJnlon Letter" to Horace Hreeley. H
says, "My paramouut olJNrt is to ae the
Union and not elUiertosave or destroy slav
ery." If I could save the Union ithout free
ing any slaves I would do It, and if I could sate
It by freeing nil tho slaves I would do It, and If
1 conld save It by freeing some aud leaving
others alone I would abo do that."
The old Union was glorious and it was worth
saving. It was our herltago from our patriot
fathers, a heritage which wa.s lorn lu i Ightful
revolution and Sealed In heroic blood, a heritage
of domain and constitution and Hag. a heritage
of liberty and history which were haloed with
glory. The war was wiiged for that, but he
who Is always better to us than our fears and
keeps step with maus truest needs gave us one
more excellent than that, one that was purged
of slavery and replete with freedom. Surely
fighting to save the Unlou was a good fight.
Then third, It was a good fight In its achieve
ment. The building of the gomnnu-ut of tho t'nlon
was wiser than men knew. They realized more
than they Intended or expected. The Urd
God ws presiding at the helm or the ship of
state, His mighty hand which hitherto had
guided the destinies of the nation, was thereto
pilot It Into the port of righteousness. IIH be
uigncd Providence sliaiicd and marshalled
events and precipitated them to "consumatlons
most devoHtlj wished tor" by the truest locrsof
their country. Under his mildancc tho bight
aspirations andlrtrophccles and axioms nl the
patriotic poet aktesman were all rcaltrcd.
He set the JrTflssJPeVle conflict and then ns
MIn the beauty ot the IIIHos Christ
was bom across the sea.
With a glory In bis bosom thai
transfigured you and me
As be died to make men holy."
The boys in blue said "let us die to mako men
free, while God Is marching on." And pralso
Ills holy name they did It. They crushed the
deliberated and matured and infamous conspir
acy and defeated its armed rtlwllion of traitor.
Tliea that tbe nation could not exist half
slave and halt free was provcu. Then Daniel
Webster's saj lag "liberty and Union, now ami
forever, one and inseparable" was rcalUed.
Then, the old and glorious "Declaration of In
dependence "lliat all men aro born free ami
equal" was cryttalUcd into Its dMnest express
Ion. Then slavery died, but It was shot and
not legislated to death. It was dnnl, not as the
Intention and aim of party policy, but hecauv;
It was an enormous sin in the sight of n Just
God. The time bad coraeluthe wlllnndpur

Emancipation is the brightest and rlhtmt
event of American history. Vor when slavery
died, national consistency was vindicate and
the golden gates of f rcedom were thrown wide
open, and Liberty In the trinity of Its perfect
aess, physical, political and rellgloui was en
throned as the law of the Kcpublic. And then
as tb anal achievement, there eventuated that
which was designed at the beginning, the sal
vation of the Union, not tho old Union be
queathed to us by our fathers with Its entail
ment of slavery, but a regenerated Union, tbt
old Union purified r-y tho fires of battl: and the
blood ol a heroic soldiery, and transfigured Into
a temple dedicated toths freedom of all men.
without the dlsUnctlon of race or color. Mr,
Lincoln's ideal Union, as he proclaimed It at
the National cemetery at Gettysburc "A
nation having a new birth of freedom and a
government of the people by the people for tbe
people which shall not perish from the earth."
The war secured that Union, for now as never
before, the perpetuity of the National govern
ment is established and assured to history.
Now as sever before, it Is settled and deter
mined that tli majority shall rule the nation,
ul now as never before. It Is true that "The
star spangled banner shall wave
O'er the land of the free
And the home of the brave"
The battle has been fought and the victory
won. The nation's baptism in wraUi and fire
and blood Is now an epoch of Use past- Its
