Bual Memorial day address before the Lin
coln poata of the Grand Army of the Re
public waa delivered by Chancellor An
drew In the Auditorium this afternoon.
He spoke of the old and the new aoldler and
aid that until recently he had believed that
the veteran of the civil war would have to
give way lo the hearta cf the people to the
Ttteran of the Spanish-American war.
In the morning the two poata, escorted
by Company r of the 8econd regiment of
the Nebraska National Guard, marched to
Wyuka cemetery and decorated the gravea
of the aoldler dead. , A feature of the cere
monies waa the unveiling of the Grand
Army monument, ereoted a few weeks ago
ty the Lincoln veterans.
' At the meeting In the Auditorium this
afternoon Chancellor Andrews spoke In part
Chancellor Andrews' Address.
The Old Soldier and the Young Soldier,
Comrades of the Gnind Army of the Re
public: None but those used to suffering
would now consent to make a formal ad
dress on Memorial day. Everything nat
ural to say on such an occasion has been
aall, eloquently and Impressively, a hun
dred times over. Casting about for ma
terial to construct an address today 1 can
think of nothing original. The best I can
do la to present thoughts as little thread
bare as possible. These will relate to the
enduring rgard the country has for the
soldiers of the civil war, notwithstanding
the Intervention of the Spanish war with
Its great army of young men, who without
an exception, did their war duty nobly.
During the Bpanlsh war and at the end
of It there was an Impression, In which
I myself fully Joined that the day of the
popularity of the civil war soldier was at
an end. I said, we old fellows who bore
arms from '61 to '65 cannot any longer ex
pect to fill place In the public eye. We
riave had our dav. A new order of pa
triots, younger, finer looking, able to make
more noise and to march better, has come
to the front. These will now be the people's
hero. We must be content to be forgot
ten. I SHld thla with the best of reeling,
?ulte willing on my part to be forgotten
or the country's good.
But the prophecy has not been fulfilled.
"While the new soldiers are honored as
they deserve, the old soldier Is yet the
charac Kristin hero of the time. Somehow
he will not down not because he Is ob
trusive, but because with all his faulta the
people Insist on liking him. This persist
ence of kind feeling toward civil war vet
erans la a phenomenon needing to be ex
plained. I refer It mainly to three causes:
When the Spanish war came on the life
of thla republic war- absolutely assured.
No one at home and no well-informed for
eigner dreamed that Spain could materially
harm the United States. Nearly all ex
pected that Spain would make a better
flaht than she actually did make, but the
whole world knew that neither Spain alone
nor any combination of powers which she
could get to Join her could Inflict on thla
republic lasting Injury. Whatever risks,
therefore, the soldiers of the Spanish war
ran, the possibility of coming home with
out a country was not one of them. Bar
otherwise In the civil war. The continu
ance of our republic in its Integrity was
then a matter of grave doubt. Those who
enlisted distinctly faced the possibility of
- coming home without a country. If they did
not die aa part of a forlorn hope. The
people, It seems to me, credit the old sol
dier with extra patriotism for thla peculiar
risk he ran on behalf of a country that
might conceivably soon cease to be. They
credit the old soldier on the same principle
on which many .historians of the civil war
save paid pratue to the bankers and wealthy
people who led the way In Investing in the
first war bonds. This. la. ana vsunonwliy
the old soldier still holds -his pure da popu
lar esteem. - .- .
' Great as were the sufferings'' and prlva
tlona of the Spanish war soldiers, and I
should be the last to discourage them, It
must, I think, be admitted that they were
hardly worthy -to be compared with those
undergone by the men of '61 and '65. The
food which the Spanish war soldiers ate
was better and more plentiful. Their cloth
ing waa better. When they traveled by
rail they had upholstered seats, and Bleep
ing berths, luxuries almost unknown to us
in cir earlier days. Surgical, medical and
sanitary service In the later war were of
the best. Wounds which surely would have
been fatal at Gettysburg or Chlckamauga
were In the later war hardly aerious. Hos-
?ltal nursing had been reduced to an art.
. would not minimise the pain borne on
bshalf of their country by the brave fel
lows In southern and Cuban camps, on
battle fields. In the holds of vessels, but I
cannot suppose that much of this experi
ence began to parallel, the similar woea of
'men now before me while they were In
active service. This tougher probation aa
eoidlers Is another entry which the country
kit us on the credit aide of Its account

up to tbe separation. In Tecumseh Ave
