It was a serious question and finally he

One of the noteworthy changes as the trip
progressed was the difference In the tone
of applause the farther west we got. The
nearer he got to Wyoming the sharper the
shouts became, until Tier they rang like

of the east had given way to the sharp,
high-pitched barks of the plains of the
west. To describe the reception at Chey

New Application of Old Prlmelples,
The pioneer days are over, aav In a few
places; and the more complex life of today
call for a greater variety of good qualities
than were needed on the frontier. There la
need at present to encourage the develop
ment of new abilities which can be brought
to high perfection only by a kind of training
useletts in pioneer times; but these new
qualities ran only supplement, and never
supplant, the old, homely virtues; the need
for the special and distinctive pioneer vlr
tuea Is as great aa ever. In other words,
as our civilisation grows older and more
complex, while It is true that we need to
develop men whose live are devoted wholly
to the pursuit of special objects, It Is yet
also true that we need a grater and not a
less development of the fundamental fron
tier virtues. These virtues Include the
power of self help, together With the power
of joining with other for mutual help, and,
what Is especially Important, the feeling of
comradeship, of social good-fellowship.
Any man who had the good fortune to live
among the old frontier conditions must, In
looking back, realise how vital wa this
feeling of general comradeship and sOclal
fellowship. There were good men and bad
men in the new communities Just a in th
old communities, and the condition on the
frontier were such that th qualities of the
good and bad alike were rather more strik
ingly manifested than In older communities;
but among the men who tried to lead hard
working, decent lives, there was a feeling
of genuine democracy, which represented
an approach to the American ideal which
we certainly should do everything In 6ur
Lpower to preserve. We did not try to say
that men were equal when they were not
equal, but we did our best to secure some
thing like an equality of opportunity and an
equality of reward for good service; and.
moreover each man expected to be received,
and, on the whole, was received wherever
he went, on the footing that his merit war
"Now, so far ae possible these qualities
and th condition that bring about these
qualities should be kept in the great states
whloh are growing out of the old frontier
communities. We need to strive for the
general social betterment of the people as
a whole, and yet to encourage Individual
liberty and set high reward on Individual
initially up to the point where they becom
aeinmentai to tne general welfare. In con
tinually and earnestly striving for thl
betterment of social and economic condi
tions in our complex Industrial-civilization
w ehould work in the old frontier spirit
of rugged strength and courage and yet
with the old frontier spirit of brotherly
comradeship and good will. I do not mean
that- we should refrain from hating wrong
on the contrary, I would preach fiery
wrath against wrong. But I would not
preach such wrath against, the wrong
doer, save In those cases where hi wrong

ystemj of which he Is almost aa much the
Victim as . the beneficiary. Sometimes a
wrong represent the deliberate wickedness
of the wrong-doer. In which case the rem
edy Is to punish him; but sometimes it
represents th effect of a false social
system, In which case the right course Is

Interest all men who live in the open coun
try, and especially all men who during the
last thirty years have lived and worked on
ranches, or have done their life work In
the wilder part of our land, on th irea
plains or among the mountain. The phase
of our national life In which the stockman
the mining prospector, th frontier .farmer
ana their associates . wer th chief char
acters, was not only a very Important, but
aiso a very picturesque phase. Often such
a phase passes without any great artist
arising to commemorate - it. The old-time
back woodsman, for Instance, the man of
the back country who lived In th eastern
forest through which th waters ran east
ward to th Atlantic and westward to the
Mississippi, passed away without any
painter or sculptor arising who possessed
at once both the keenness of vision to see
what a vital and picturesque figure th
backwoodsman was, and the genius ade
quately to present that figure. The artist
who uw th plcturesqueness of the back
woodsman lacked th genius adequately to
commemorate It, while the artist of real
ability unfortunately had their eye turned
lowaras Europe and lacked the robust
originality which the novelist Coope
showed to see where their chanoe lay to
do a grea work. But In our generation, for
our good fortune, a great artist arose who
was capable of seeing and of recording the
infinite plcturesqueness of the life of the
plains and the Rockies. Of course, I speak
of Frederick Remington. He was on of
those Americans who by hi achievements
distinctly deserved well of America. h
worked wltn pencil, with brush, with chisel;
he was both a painter and a sculptor. His
picture and hi few bronzes are equally
good. When my own regiment, a typically
western regiment recruited from the men
of the great plain and th mountain, 'was
disbanded at Montouk point, the officers
and enlisted men Joined In giving me Rem
ington's bronxe bronco buster, a gift which
I thought peculiarly appropriate coming
from such a body of men. - In Remington's
pictures all the most vivid and charac-
lenauo features or the western pioneer life
which Is Just closing wsre set forth, and
he haa commemorated forever the men of
the plains and the mountains as they
actually were. The cowboy 1 hi favorlt
type, but the mining prospector, the fron.
tier farmer, the man who guides ox wagon
or mule team, the soldier, the Indian all
appear. Now I wish very much that these
men themselves would in turn provide a
monument for tha great artist, the sum of
whose activities represents such a feature
of American achievement, and, abov all,
represent th commemoratloti of aome of
th moat Interesting figure that have ever
appeared on th atage of American life.
A statue should be raised to Remington by
some really first-class artist. Here at
Cheyenne In this gathering many hundreds
of the men have come together who were
themselves typical leaders In and repre
sentatives of the very life which Reming
ton so portrayed that It will always live.
hope that these men will Join together,
arrange the appointment of a committee,
and start to raise funds for the erection
