battle of Bunker Hill. Liberty bell, which
pealed forth the Declaration of Independ

of the occasion. Patrlotio fervor and fire

will be other doings calculated to stir the
ardor of the elders snd fire the heart of
As long as the republlo lives, ss long
as liberty has an abiding place In the hu
man heart, the battle of Bunker Hill,
fought June 17, 1775, will remain an In
spying chapter of Freedom's history. "One
of the old, old stories of which the world
will never weary," says a writer In Les
lie's Weekly, "la the tale of how a little
band of American farmers and woodsmen
fought the first great battle for American
liberty and independence on the crest of
Bunker Hill. Like the heroic struggle of
Leonldas and his Spartans at Thermopylae,
like Arnold Wlnkelreld before the Aus
trlans at Sempach, so did the gallant War
ren and the Intrenld rjrerntt that June
I day, upon the heights overlooking Boston,
win for themselves and for their no less
gallant snd stalwart followers a crown of
imperishable glory. Although the day may
come In the not distant future and It can
not come too soon when war ahall cease
throughout the earth and the sword shall
flash and the cannon Toar no longer In the
awful tragedy of battle, mankind will never
cease to look with awe, reverence and ad
miration upon such deeds as were per
formed that day, when a handful of men
fresh from their homes and firesides and
II unschooled to hostile action, withstood
veteran army and beat It back again and
again with awful slaughter.
Who shall add anything new to the
tory of that eventful conflict, that pivotal
point In the evolution of nations and peo
ples toward the higher and truer life of
freedom and equality, that epoch-making
vent upon which the searchlights of his
tory have been playing for a century? Has
not every schoolboy learned and told the
tale, waved "the sword of Bunker Hill,"
nd rehearsed In tremulous accents the
glorious death-song which the poet has put
In the mouth of the patriot Warren:
Stand! The ground's your own, my braves,
in ye give u up to slaves 7
Hope ye mercy still?
Desperate and Bloody.
"Measured by every standard, both of the
famous battles preceding it and of those
which have since taksn pluce, the conflict
on Bunker Hill was a desperate and bloody
one. While not more than an hour was
spent In actual fighting the British loss In
killed and wounded was 3,054. or more than
one third of tb.e whole foiee engaged. In
cluding an unusually large proportion of
officers. The American loss was 449, about
one-fourth of the number In action. On the
British aide, one company came out of the
battle with only five of Us number left un
hurt. Every officer on General Howe's staff
was cut .down, and only, ono survived his
wounds. The oldest soldiers In the Brftlsh
army, veterans of many a hard-fought
field In other lands; declared that they had
never seen the like. The regulars of
France, they asserted, were less formid
able than the militia of New England,
Vergennes, the French minister of foreign
s flairs, exclaimed that with two more such
victories England would have no army left
in America. To the English people ren
erally the fighting capacity of the colonists
as shown on this occasion came as a shock
or surprise not unlike that to which they
were treated in the early stages of the late
Boer war. when, at Maagersfonteln. Co
lenso and Splon Kop, they saw their veteran
columns turned back in disastrous and
bloody defeat before a comparative hand
ful of valiant burghers of the veldt. Tt was
the same lesson new aa then, on the height
above Boston harbor a mass of trained and
disciplined soldiery going to pieces before
the calm, desperate, heroic resistance of a
rew men fighting on ground of their own
choosing and In a cause on which thev had
staked an that makes life dear.

harmlessly demented, at the home of his
sister, Mercy Warren, at Watortown,
when he witnessed the excitement snd
listened to the rumor of bsttle on that
eventful morning of the 17th of June. With
ouchlng eagerness t strike a blow for
the cause In which he had already suffered
ro much, Otis stole away from home, bor
rowed a musket at some roadside farm
house and hastened to the battlefield,
where he fought manfully, and, after all
was over, made his way home, weary and

"It is difficult to. realise as one stands
today at the base of the monument marking
the spot, that on this very ground, now
hemmed around so closely with shops and
buildings of many kinds, the whole area
seemingly so little. Insignificant and Incon
sequential In comparison with the propor
tions which It assumes on the pages of
history, that here a mighty conflict once
raged, mighty In the Issues It involved and
In the results which flowed from It; that
here the Valorous Wsrren fell and died,
and that on this grassy slope, after the
fight that sunny June morning, the dead
and wounded lay In heaps. Over there, a
few rods away, on a connecting ridge Is
Breed's Hill, where Colonel Prescott of
Peppercll threw up a redoubt and where the
most desperate stand whs made; and
down there, now hidden almost out of sight
by jutting wharves and lofty warehouses,
flows the Mystic, on whose shores, then
open wide to view, the S.ono redcoats landed
to make an easy conquest, as they thought,
of the "peasants" who had gathered to defy
them on the hill beyond. There, also,
lower down, nearer the water, behind the
fence of rails and pew-mown grass, lay
the men of Connecticut, against whose
stalwart line the British light Infantry
best vainly In assault after assault, until
their dead lay, as one chronicler of the
fight tells tis. 'as thick ns sheep in a fold.'
It was here In very truth that the
clock of time struck Its first world-resound
ing note, marking the birth of a new and
mighty nation dedicated for all the com
ing centuries to human freedom and the
brotherhood of man."
Compared with Other Battlea.
The battle of Quebec, which won half
continent did not cost the lives of so many
onusn omcers as this at Bunker Hill
which gained nothing but a place of en
campment Had the losses on both sides
been the same proportionately, such tre
mendous battlea as those of later days in
our own land, at Antletam, Cold Harbor
and Gettysburg, would have counted their
eiain ana wounded by the hundred thou
sands Instead of ten thousands. The awful
effect of the American fire on Bunker
Hill slope was a striking testimony to the
coolness, the intrepidity and the skilled
marksmanship of Prescott's little band
the result of years of unconscious prepara
tion In the rough school of frontier life
with its ever present peril of savage beasts
and still more savage men. It Is the dellb
erate opinion of one of the most careful
students of tnis conflict that, had th
Americana been properly supplied wit
powder, Howe could no more have taken
Bunker Hill than Burnalde could have
taken the heights of Fredrlcksburg.
"The beet description of the battle of
Bunker Hill Itself Is to be found In th

quoted in Higglnson's history. The de

"How It was regarded by Gag himself,
the victorious general, Is disclosed by a
letter which he wrote Immediately after.
In which he speaks of a success that 'cost
us dear,' adding, 'the trials we have made
show that the rebels are not the despicable
rabble too many have supposed them to
be,' a ad concluding with the prophetic
words that 'the conquest of this country
Is not easy.' More truly was the horoscope
cast by the American commander Ward, in
a general order Uaued after the battle,
encouraging his men with the declaration:
'We shall finally come oft victorious, and
triumph over the enemies of freedom and
America.' Ben Franklin, also, was Inspired
to write it as the lesson of the day: 'The
Americans will fight. England has lost
her colonies forever."

' Mark Wool nt Pierre.
PIERRE. 8. D., June 14. (Special.)
Wool growers are beginning to get their
year's crop to market and are much pleased
to find prices have advanced several points
since they marketed their last yeur's sup
ply of wool. The beat grades are bringing
as high as 18 cents per pound, which Is
about ( centa ahead of last year. Over
1,000,000 pounda of wool were marketed here
last slimmer and the indications are that
fully as much or more will come In this
AFFAIRS AT SOUTH OMAHA
Rmh Orders tt Packing Plants Compel
Operations on Snndaj.
OUTPUT FOR MONTH DOUBLE NORMAL
Hoard of Review Appoint menta May
He Completed Scarcity of Sheep
Park Honda May Be
On account of the rapidly increasing num
ber of rush orders, all of the packing houses
with the exception of Armour's kept their
plants running full blast until noon yes
terday. Some work waa done In the after
noon, put all the departments were working
up to the noon hour. Cars of, packing
house products were being loaded Into re
frigerator cars and shipped into the terri
tory tributary to the Kansas City and St.
Louis markets. Packers are Inclined to
think that the rush of business here will
keep up for the balance of the month and
possibly longer. Cntll the Stock Yards
company at Kansas City Is prepared to
handle live stock, the packers cannot com
mence operations. At the plants In Kansas
City the damaged stock Is being removed
from the cellars and tanked. An inspec
tion shows that the loss on meats will
not be nearly as large as at first thought.
On account of the extra work now going
on at the South Omaha plants the rail
roads are kept busy hauling In coal, salt
and other supplies. The outgoing ehlp
ments of refrigerator cars Is largely ia ex
cess of the normal. Whllo the exact fig
ures are not accessible, It Is understood
that the shipments of packing house prod
ucts this month will almost if not quite
equal ordinary shipments for any two
months In the year. Very few If any
packing house laborers are idle now and
it Is asserted that there is room for more
men at all of the plants.
A packer said last night that even should
the Kansas City houses start up In a week
It would bo another week or so before the
trade could be supplied, and therefore tho
supply will naturally come from this mar
ket for points west of the river. 'In the
territory adjacent to St. Louis supplies
will be sent mostly from Chicago.
The yards here are still tilled with re
frigerator cars, coal and salt cars, and It
koeps the Stock Yards Railroad company
busy handling the Incoming trains of stock
and the outgoing trains of meat, to say
nothing of the fifty or more cars of conl
which have to be delivered dally to the
Council Meeting; Tonight.
A regular meeting of the city council Is
t- be held tonight. Most of the routine
business was cleaned up at the meeting
held on Friday night, but some matters
of minor Importance may come up. It Is
expected that tonight the mnyor will submit
one or more names for member of the
Board of Review. Just what the council
will do no one seems to know, as the
members are not doing sny talking and
the mayor declines to be Interviewed on this
subject Tuesday the Board of Review
should meet for the purpose of equalizing
tho 1903 assessment. No one seems able
to predict what the Outcome will be should
the council decline to confirm the mayor s
appointment. With only two members It
is evident that an agreement could not bo
reached on ull of the cases brought before
the board, and unless a third member Is
appointed and confirmed It Is possible that
the entire assessment might be declared
Invalid. Anything of this kind would prove
a disastrous blow to the city on account
of the present condition of the funds and
the overlap, which now amounts to $70,000. :
Lsst night It was reported that a meeting
between the mayor and the council would
be held this afternoon to talk over the
mstter of an appointment.
Demand Exceeds Supply.
A scarcity of sheep receipts Is noticed at
nearly all of,the live stock markets. Last
week the receipts of sheep at the South
Omaha 'market numbered only 10.262 Vead.
Soma days no receipts were noted at all,
and on other days only a few cars arrived
Commission dealers say that It looks like
a continuance of light receipts until range
sheep are ready to be sent to market.
Heavy shipments of sheep from the ranges
are not looked for until the middle of
July. All sheep that come to this market
are eagerly sought by the packers and
satisfactory prices are being paid. In fact,
the demands are far in excess of the sup
ply. 80 far this year 532,438 head of sheep
have been received at the South Omaha
Bonds for Parks.
Rumor has it that in the fall the park
board of South Omaha will ask the voters
to consider a proposition to vote bonds In
the sum of 3100.000 for the purpose of ac
quiring Syndicate park, and also tor the
purchase of ground for parks in an 01 ine
wards, with the exception of the Sixth
ward. It la understobd that under the
provisions of the charter, bonds for park
purposes may be voted at any time. Some
of the members of the present Board of
Park Commissioners are anxious to have
the city buy Syndicate park. They hold,
however, that bonds for this purpose alone
would meet with some opposition, so the
plan is to have small parks located In all
the wards. Highland park Is located In
the Sixth ward and Syndicate park Is in
th First ward, so that If sites are to be
purchased for parka the other wards will
receive some benefit. The proposition will
not, however, be seriously considered until
the fate of the present bond Issue Is known.
Revising; the Llata.
Deputy Sheriff Jamea Roach will be busy
today looking up the Judges and clerks of
election. The same Judges and clerks ap
polnted'for the election held last November
will serve at the special bond election to
be held on June 23. It Is necessary for the
deputy sheriff lo personally serve each
Judge and clerk with a notice. In eases
where vacancies have occurred sinoe the
last election the places will be filled within
the next few days. In nearly every In
stance the voting booths will be located
at the same places where voterq are re
quired to register.
