Amid the labors and sacrifices of
all these years, the precious dust of
our fallen heroes 19 not fotgotten.
The inspiration which Came to a
Southern woman almost identical
with the close of hostilities has been
perpetuated every season with the
coming of the flowers that tell of
their resurrection. It is this which
has called us together, and as the
graves are bedecked with the em
blems of purity and innocence, the
mind goes back with unerring in
stinct to the days when shot and shell
fell thick and fast among the young
men of the South, whose libations
were freely offered in defense of what
they believed to tre right. O, that it
were in my power to depict what
death meant to those youthful heroes
at whose graves we linger with fond
est memories. They recked not that
danger was nigh when duty called.
It was theirs to leave a heritage of
valor and consecration far better than
glittering gold and more precious
Are these memories to be brushed
aside, and must the glory of splendid
achievement in a noble cause bevfor
ever stifled? To the South belongs
the pathos, the poetry, the romance
of the great struggle, let who will en
joy the triumph. The distinction is
material and everlasting. It is won
derful that an eminent civilian of
New England soon after the war pro
posed to obliterate all recollections
of the strife by putting 'Out of sight
all the relics that savored of battle
and carnage. He desired not to pre
serve the torn and tattered flags that
epitomized the glories of Gettysburg
and Shiloh, and he would not erect
monuments to the men who scaled
Missionary Ridge or planted the Stars
and Stripes upon Vicksburg embat-
tlements. His conviction was that
the sections would be reunited more
speedily by complete oblivion of the
past. In this he was surely mistaken.
A nation that would stifle the impulse
to honor the heroic dead and bury out
of view the glorious achievements of
its sons deserves Itself to perish irom
the' face of the earth. War with its
inevitable horrors is to be deplored,
but the nations of antiquity no less
than those of modern times are more
renowned through their warriors than
exalted in their statesmen who were
purely civilians, as a general rule. It is
lamentable that peace has not pre
vailed' throughout the ages, when we
look upon the cruelties and oppres
sions that are inseparable from grim
visaeed war. but blood has flowed
where freedom ever gained a foot
hold, and crimson is the royal color.
In the language of another: "Eng
land was redeemed by blood; Italy
was united by blood; Switzerland be
came free through blood; Germany
was emancipated by blood; America
secured its liberty through blood;
and Jt is even so that the great hope
which lifts us up toothings invisible
and eternal came to us by blood." To
erase the remembrance of cruea war
we must blot out the history of every
neoDle who have wrought nobly in
behalf of the freedom and enlighten
ment of the human race. Sad as it
is in many respects, the heart of man
kind is ever touched with the story
of conflict and conquest and callous
must be the soul whose inmost re
cesses are not stirred by the struggles
of patriots for the boon of freedom
or the preservation of independence.
Valiant Cubans striving td throw
off the yoke of the tyrant Spainj
or heroic tireece defying the
great powers of fiurbpd irt an
effort to maintain itself among
the nations of the world, must arouse
the deepest sympathy of every man
who has ever felt the glow of patriot
ism in his own breast. No; it Is not
in vain that men give honor to the
deeds of heroes, and that they gather
the relics which speak more elo
quently than words of the courage
and constancy of their fathers, or
build monuments that will point fu
ture generations to the valor and vir
tue of a noble ancestry.
In this presence it is unnecessary
to eulogize the patience through pri
vationHhat marked the Confederate
soldier as he plodded along the weary
years, helping to re-establish the
prosperity of the land that gave him
birth and to rehabilitate the govern
ment of his fathers. The highest en
comium that he can receive ia the
abundant testimony of those who
were once his enemies, for in all the
land there is not heard the faintest
whisper that the ex-Confederates are
unmindful of their obligations as
citizens of a common country. The
false charge of disloyalty has van
ished into thin air, and the ground
less calumny that he was not fit to be
trusted has been blotted oui by the
splendid representatives furnished by
the South for service at home and

there will be no wars, where monu-
rrients are not required, where death
and sorrow never come. With rev
erent homage we stand tiy these
graves of our heroes. They are hal
lowed in our hearts and souls and
wd will honor and adore them for
ever. These be the men who fought with
the Johnstons. Lee; Jacksoa, Breck
inridge, Morgan and Polk, and Bragg
and Hardee and Hood, and Forrest
and Hill, and Cheatham and Cleburn,
and hosts of immortal I troes. Those
be the partakers of the sublime glory
of the Confederate armies, and we
come in tenderness and devotion and
affection to mark, beautify and bless
the soil that garners their dust, and
to declare that the memories of the
virtues, of the courage, of the chiv
alry, of the bravery, of the sacrifices,
of the sufferings, of the renown of
our departed comrades shall be as
deathless as their deeds were illus
trious. "Ily fairy hands their knell is rang.
By forms unseen their dirge is sung.
Here honor comes a pilgrim gray
To bless the turf that wraps their clay.
And Freedom doth a while repair.
To dwell a weeping hermit there."

United States against iif packets Jo
jbe determined by the pollute (''tut
and will form the basis lor future Mo
tion until the Supreme Court reviews'
the decision. The1 ibstaiu-e of the
conclusions reached by t he tfnirt aiv:
The giving; or receiving of a rebaiC
or concession whereby properjy in
inter-State or foreign exunmerfe is
transiorted at a less rate than that
legally filed and published is a viola
tion of the Klkinn act and is n con
tinuous crime, ad judicable in any
court of the United States having
jurisdiction of any district tlirouwh
which transportation is conducted.
The rates of transportation from
places in the United State's to ports
of trans-shipment and from ports of
entry to places in the United States,
of property in foreign countries ear
ned under through bills of lading are
required to be filed and published ly
the amended inter-State commerce
act of 1887.
If carried under an aggregate
through rate which is the sum of
ccean rate and the rate from or to
a place in tJie United States, to or
from the port of trans-shipment, or
of entry, the latter rate is required
to be. filed and published. ' -
If csntd under a joint through
rate by virtue of a common contrd,
management oi arrangement of the
inland ocean carriers, the joint rate
is required to be filed and published.
Essence of the Offense.
The giving or receiving- of the re
bate or concession whereby property
ni inter-State or foreign commerce is
tir-nsported at less than the estab
lished rate, is the essence of the of
fense pertinently denounced bv the
Eikins act. The "device" bv which
the concession or transportation is
brought about is not an essential
element of the crime and it is un
recessary to plead it in the indict
ment. The naminor of the clause "bv
any device whatever" in the Eikins
act is, directly or indirectly, in any
Secretary Wilson Chief Speaker.

The Supreme Court of the Unifi'd
State has decided in effect that tl.
railroad commissioner of Xorth
Carol! tin can compel a railroad com
pany operaUn-r In thai State to ii
jidjuf-t its rrhfdule as to accomino
d?.le paoenger on other lines from
any particular part of the State. The
opinion was delivered by Justice
White in the case of the Atlantic
(Vast Line Railroad Company s.
the corKratioii eoinmi-xioii of North
Carolina. The eat-e arose out of an
order issued by the Commissioners di
recting the railroad company to
make connection at Sclma at '2:2." p.
m. with a train on another line mu
lling Iron the eastern part of the
State, with the object of accommo
dating passengers whose1 destination
was Kaleish. The railroad company
resisted the order on the ground that
it could not bi complied with without
putting on a special train which
would involve extra expense. This,
it wascontended, amounted to taking
property -without due process of law.
The commission justified its course on
the ground that compliance with the
order was necessary to aeommodate
a la rue part of the public. The Su
preme Court of Xorth Carolina held
against the railroad company, and it
decision was afHrmed by the -action
of the Supcrme Court of the United
States on the ground that the order
of the commission does not affect the
rates but is a proper act of State
