WA'HIIINIITOJ ? , Oct. 1. Services In memory
of General Grant were Jield bore this mornIng -
Ing tinder the auspices of the local command-
cry , Grand Army of Uio Bepublle , in the
Metiopolitan chtitch , at which General Grant
was a regular attendant during his presiden
tial terms. The auditorium , onu of Uiu largest
In thu city , was crowded. Funeral chimes
were rung from 7 to 8 o'clock , and followed
by an organ voluntary by Dr. J. W. BIscholT.
A notable feature of the ser
vices was the chanting nnd singing
of war songs by thu St. Cecilia ladies'
quartette. Thu meeting was called to older
by Uio department commander , M.M.Brooks ,
and after prajer by Dr. Hiintley , tliepie.sent
pastor of the church , Gen. Logan , oiator of
thu day was Introduced and warmly wel
comed with clapping of bands by the audi
ence. His speech was frequently inten upted
by the plaudits of thu audience , which broku
out at the mention of the names of favorite
commanders , and allusions to the more con
spicuous events In the btory of General
Grant s career.
General Logan's addicss embodied a recital
from thu standpoint of a peisonal observer of
thu mllltaiy history of General Grant. He
began with his own first meeting with Grant
nt Springfield , ( III. , ) vvhuro the hitter was
assisting the governor of his statu to oiganl/u
volunteers under thu Hist call of President
Lincoln. He touched In telly and with little
elaboration or comment upon the steps in thu
upward progress of the subject of his eulogy ,
the batUes fought and won , and the cam
paigns planned and carried out. Ho alluded
lo thu jealousy and littleness ot Geueial Hal-
leek , when Grant's suiwrlor in rank , him
almost n prisoner at Fort lleniy , to
Hallcck's dilatory movements ; against Cor
inth , lo hfs disregard of Uie advice and Information
mation that the enemy was escaping , and to
the fntitless outcome of thu campaign , the
effect of which , however , was to restoio
Grant to the command of his old ai my of the
Tennessee , Hu described the failures of
Grant's first movements against Vickslmig.
threatening a loss of confidence on the iiait
of the people and icsultlng In clamors for his
removal. Thu presldent'seonlhlunce , ho.sald.
was however , unshaken and ho
to trust Grant a little longer.
Grant's next plan , Uiu speaker said , was
recognized by the mllltaiy authoiities of Uio
country as wholly unmllltarv and dangerous.
They believed it was military suicide and
against all science of war. It was , however ,
full of audacity and in Its icsults showed the
genius of thu man who planned It This
was the campaign which lesulted in the fall
of Vieksburg. lialleck had dhcctcd Grunt to
leave Vlckbburg and move down to Port
Hudson and assist Hanks. Banks , be
ing Grant's superior , would thus bo
in command oC thu combined lorces. Hal-
Jcok suggested that after Port Hudson should
fall , Vieksburg should bo assailed. Hal-
leek's letter came too late. Five battles had
been fought Grant was already moving on
to Vieksburg. Pemberton was driven within
the walls and lockid up with only sixty days
rations. On the Fourth of July , IbUJ , the
long and bloody siege came to a termination
and Grant at the head of his victoi ions army
entered thu city and placed the old Hag upon
the court house. It was the largest
capture of men and munitions of war
ever made In any modern war
up to that time. In the campaign the enemy's
killed , wounded and missing numbeieil more
than Grant's entiru effective forc . Port
Hudson was at once biniendcrcd and thu
bnckbono of the rebellion was broken.
The orator touched upon thu w ithdrawal of
Hosecrans within the lines of Chattanooga
where ho was cooped up , with
Bragg in possession of his com
munications. Jtosecrans was , ho said com
pletely encircled and apparently in
a position where he must sooner or later sur-
lender for want of supplies. Giant was or
dered by the president to take command of
that department , and his act was to as
sign Thomas to command in place of
crans. Chattanooga was subsequently ie-
lievcd by Grant nnd thu battles and victories
of Lookout Mountain and Mission
lUdgo followed , having defeated Bragg
nnd driven him from his stionghold. Grant
now commenced maturing plans for his gieat
linal campaigns. His idea was to move tiom
Chattanooga to Atlanta and thencu to Mobile ,
unions something should intervene in thu
meantime to force him In thu dliectlon of
Savannah from Atlanta. In a letter written
that winter Grant said sharp lighting would
occur In thu spring and if the union foices
were successful the war would bo ended in a
year. Grant was now made lieutenant
general and placed In command
of the aimlesof thuiepuhlle , but one person ,
Gcorgo Washington , has ever held thu posi
tion before. ( \ \ Infield Scott meicly had a
brevet ) On the 3d day ol Miuch , 1NH , ho was
ordured to Washington. Ills intention at thu
time was to leturn Irom Washington and
lead the armies of Shciman , Thomas and
Scholield to Atlanta. Unforeseen events
changed his Intention and torced him to thu
east but his campaign was can led almost to
the letter by others. Having assumed supreme
premo command on the 17th ot March hu at
once proceeded to establish his lieadquaitois ,
in Uio field at Cnlpepper.
Heretofore thu campaigns of the different
armies had been conducted without any ref
erence to each other. Grant purposed now
that all his campaigns should pioceedwith
onu common end In view. Ho wouldcom [
bine all of his available vu\stcrn foices under
Sherman and those of thu east under Meade ,
and move the two great armies towaid a com
mon center. Sherman was to move against
Johnston and hammer nnd pound and iollow
him until hu was destroyed , captured or
dilven back to Itluhmond , when both rebel
armies vyeru to bu crushed between thu two
great armies of thu republic. Meadu was to
advance upon Lc and strike him wheiever
bo could bu found. The plan was carried out
successfully , end during its progress victories
were achieved which eaved tlm republic.
The speaker described briefly but In glowIng -
Ing terms Uiu events of Grant's civ 11 career
and thu honors showejcd upon him
by our i > eoplo nt homo and
by men and nations abroad , "From Del-
inont to the siege of Yk'ksburg , " said Gen.
Logan In his summing up , "I was near him
in nearly all bis marches , campaigns and
batUes , being txirmlttid by htm to tiku pos
session of Vieksburg with my command on
account of Its having approached nearer to
tlio enemy than any other. During my term
u.i commander of that city I was with him
uluiost every day , and fiom the time when at
the head of that glorious old army of the
'Jonnessce , of which hu was thu nrst com
mander and 1 Its last , 1 marched by ills ic-
vluvvinx Bland at the national capHol , down
to Uiu last painful dayn of bib memorable life ,
I was with him very often , Dmlng all this
while-1 was a close obsei ver ot him. Grant
was usually known and rccopulml a.s a
ijulct anil silent man , but when
wigagcd In conversation on any subject In
which he felt an Interest them were few who
excelled him as a eonveisatloiwlist He
wrote twwly and well , and at times most elo-
< nicntlv. Thu nation was at dlfleient times
thrilled by his , rplgraiiiumtlo sentences.
"When ho wrote to Buckncr , Uiu commander
at Fort Donelson , "No terms other than an
unconditional and Immediate surrender can
) K' accepted. 1 propose to move immediately
ilium your works. " his words burned with a
jrlow of patriotic lire Into the heart
> f every loyal f iceman. When ho had
JouL-ht tlio battle of the Wilderness uuil wioto
to thepresident. . " 1 piopoM ) to fight it out on
this line If It , taucti all Hummer , " hu

-V ,
the memorahlo woids In bis conclusion :
"Let us have peace. " Thes-e words fell upon
the people with electrical effect. Ills cool
ness. hfs perception , his aptness In using
right words In the right place , and doing
the right thing at tlie right time , were at the
bottom of ids success as a civil m.iglstrate ,
Just as his great faculty of doing tin1 rlcht
thing at the right time and place , and some
times In the most unexpected manner , wasat
the bottom of Ids nillltarvsuc < ? es. .
The speaker de ciibcd the subject of his
eulogy as a man of gieal strength of intellect
and iciimrkable common scu e , coolness ,
self-possession and tenacity , a true filend to
those worthy of bis friendship , and the kind
est and best of husbands and fathers. H lias
been said that ho was not a strategist. In
the si > eakers belief he was without a ilval
either as a strategist or a commander. Ho
was greater as a military commander than
\\aslilngton , Napoleon , Wellington , Mail-
Ixiio , Uio prince ofi Orange , uFredeilek ,
Charlemagne , Hannibal , orSelpio Afrlcana" ,
and In the speaker's belief coming centuries
would gl\e him a rank equal , if not supeiior ,
to.lnliitsC.usar , and when the mists tlnown
around his civil administration by partisan
enemies should bu dispelled they would iqual
In gloiy any administration of the past.
Duly was with him a living principle.
.Nothing could swerve him from a ho
believed to bo right. Ho was conscientious ,
jiHt , truthful , ; eoiiraccous and magnani
mous. He stood by his friends and forgave
bis enemies. Uu fought , not for glory , but to
save his country. When ciiticlscd and cen
sured , when tlio clouds of calumny hung
about him. he stood with folded aims amid
the thnndcis , witnessing the wrath of his
enemies , but lie spoke not In his own defense.
Time finally dispelled the clouds mullet in
the sunshine of honest judgment. Then his
heart was- found pure as a dewdiop which
hung upon the lips of a velvet rose. Ho be
lieved in the justice of God , and that sooner
or later , Ho would by some means guide him
us the commander of ouraimles to the line
wheiu justice would take the place of wioug ,
and "man's inhumanity lo man" bo propeily
"But , " continued the speaker , "his lace has
been run. Great and good men went upon
mountains to die. The attention of the
wholoelvlll/ed world was directed to the. spot.
His glory was not that of his count iv alone ,
but of the civilized races ot man. When the
news of his death went tiembllng over the
wires to thu innermost parts of the earth , the
people of every nation and tongue stood
with bowed heads. Grant had in life as
cended to the topmost heights of mortal fame ,
His gieatest lenown was the glory of a man's
greatest achievements which shone around
and about him. God called him and he stei > -
ped liom his high pedestal on this earth into
the pieseneo ot the great white thione. where
he was crowned with thu Immortal glory
that shincth on forever. "
The sen Ices were concluded with bene
diction and a concert of patriotic uiis upon
the bulls.

Tflic Miners' Strike at Carlion.
Cinn ix.v : , W. T. , Oct. 1 , [ Special to the
llii.J : : All the mlnei-s at Carbon , Wjomlng ,
wliero ! ! 00 men aio at work , went out on a
strike to-day. This action Is taken In accord
ance with a i ( 'solution adopted at tlie meeting
of I'logieislveasvcmbly , Knights of Labor ,
of Caibon , as follows : "That noinorucoal
will be dug liy the miners in Carbon until
eveiy Chinaman is dismissed fiom the Union
Pacific liailway company's seivice ; that the
company leinstatoeveiy white man nut found
guilty ot any criminality dlsclmiged on ue-
count of the riot at Itock Spilngs ; Unit James
M. Tlsdel , assistant superintendent irf ( lie
coal department , be removed , and that the
litm of Hechwllh , Quinn it Co. bo compelled
to sever all connection w lib the road. "
The mines at Caibon supply nearly all the
coal used by locomotives on the Union IV
eille , and theiefore tlie stilke is the moro
serious for the road. From thu careful wordIng -
Ing of the icsolution and thu formal manner
in which it was apupted , it is believed heie
that the action is taken in obedience to orders
from the executive committee of the Knights
ol Labor at Denver. If tlio company should
attempt to put Chinese into the Caibon mine
It Is piolublo all Knights of Labor on the
Union Pacific sjstem will immediately strike.
The .sjmpathy of the public of the whole
teiiitoryis witli the white miners nnd it is
probable all striking emplojesvvlllbe assisted
in the evcut of u prolonged stiuggle. Kvery-
thing is peaceable and no intimation of

coal mlneis in Carbon stinck and all work
ceased. The Carbon mines aio owned by
the Union 1'aeilie and iuinish an inferior
kind of coal. No demonstration or demand
was made by the mlneis. Everything is ijuiet
It Is understood the present course lias been
adopted by the miner's union at Carbon atthe
instance of the union at Itock Springs , repre
senting that the Caibon mlneis kept the
Union Pacific running. Now tlie only coal
obtained by the Union Pacific in Wyoming Is
mined by tlie Chinese at liock Spiings. The
Union Pacific lias on hand u sixty davs bup-
ply of coal.
