The old soldiers wore not forgot
ten Friday by the several speakers ,
at the reception of the returned
soldiers of the Spanish-American
war. Their work was referred to
by the speakers as being of great
value to the lution. This is true.
Too much credit cannot be accorded
the union soldiers of the rebellion.
It was by their efforts tbat wo can
today boast of the greatest nation
on earth The grand reception ex
tended to the boys returning from
Manila is the fruit of their sowing.
When the boys of the civil war
returned , they did not , as a rule ,
receive the plaudits and public
demonstrations that our returning
heroes do today. Yet the old sol
diers should not feel jealous , but
proud of the fact. When they re
turned , the conditions were different.
First , the most of thoao to receive
them were widows and orphans.
Their husbands and fathers had
been left with the unnumbered deaden
on the battle fields of tlio south. A
largo per cent of the mon at homo
to receive thorn were not in smpathy
with the administration , and the
returning heroes wore looked upon
as "Lincoln hirelings , " and the sup
porture of an unjust cause. By the
persistent advocacy of the princi
ples of the union , and their exam
plen of loyalty to the ilag , a strong
Hcntirnont of patriotism has so pur
moated the nation , that even the
copper-heads of today are compelled
to join in with the supporters of the
administration in extending a wel
come to our returning heroes.
