"History presents no other spectacle
such as this, of a superior race fight

strike the shackles of slavery from an
inferior race held in bondage. You men

war would have been If the south had
prevailed, with Mason and Dixon's line

we have today 90,000,000 of peoplo all

the formal assumption the title of "Th

WASHINGTON, May 30. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator Brown this afternoon de
livered the chief address at the memorial
day exercises at the National cemetery,
where repose bodies of soldier to the num
ber of about fifty who fell defending the
national capltol. Louis P. Shoemaker,
father of the movement to construct a
great national highway to connect Wash
ington with Gettysburg battlefled and one
of the leading-land owners in Washington,
Senator Brown' oration was well re
ceived, particularly by old soldiers, who
stood with uncovered heads while the ad
dress was being delivered. Senator Brown,
among other things, said:
"The old soldiers of the war are the
noblest heroes of the republic. They
tai ght those Ideas so essential to progres
sive government and to good citizenship.
No friend of the republio will ever suffer
those Ideals so dearly taught to become
tarnished, nor that citizenship to become
discouraged. Civilization owes to the old
soldier an appi eolation for . what he has
done since the war, as well as during the
struggle. He was a good soldier then and
he has been a good citizen since. It was

a man chosen president of the United
States by tho people of tho United States,
and It is immaterial on this occasion to
dlncuss or to know what his policies are.
The material fnct is that he is president
of all the peoplo. Why was he chosen?
Becauso he stood for certain things. He
told the people what these things were
und the people undrr&lood what they were,
and when they voted for him they testified
that they would support him in giving to
tho people the policies tor which he stood.
"It is not the old soldier today who
stands In the way of the president in keep
ing faith with tho people; It I not the old
soldier who shouts 'I believe In the .presi
dent, but I am opposed to what presidents
want.' The old soldier takes tha stand
that the great policies advocated by the
president, chosen by tho people, should be
written In law of tho land."
