WE DO II- Our ivanons will cull lo any purl of I he   reception auuoided him and finlcrcd thu .Surrounding niui were the Vicu-Preaiduut and the cabinet ollicura. Cli-sc to the presi, i'Uiial parly was Governor ngij, of Punnsvlvania. and his stall uffluuis. Archbishop and Uishop Whitaker aul oy his aide and a few rods distant were Bishop Coleuian, of Delaware, Major itrong, of Nisw Vnrk, chat- ted with Mayor WtirwicU, of ibis city. Directly back of the ?rcfiidetit sat the members of .the lurk commishion into whose custody :ho monument was to-iUiv iiishop Whitakcr, of the d'ocuso of .'unnsylvsnia, otTurud a brief prayer. I'hon Maj. William Wayne, president if the state and gum-iral socioty of Cincinnati, made a brief address. Tho Presiilnut, with uncovered lead, drew the eont; the Hags fell n a billowy cloud from thu shaft, and a mighty monument stood re- vealed, while cannon on land and wnttr thundered. The I'rnsidont then spoko as fol- lows: McKinley'H .Speech. KEM.OW is a pecu- liar and tender sentiment connected not only tho gratitude and reverence of the livinir, but ia a testimonial of nilectioii ami homage from the Tho comrades of Washington pro- jected this monument. Their love in- spired it. Thpir helped to build it. 1'nst. and present nlmre in its completion and future generations will pro tit by its lessons. To participate in the dedi- cation of sucha monument is a rare and precious privilege. Every monu- ment to Washington is a tribute to to his memorv help to inculcate love of country, encourajrc loyally and establish a better citizenship. Gud bless every undertaking which re- vives patriotism and rebukes the in- different and lawless. A critical study of Washington's career only enhances our estimation of his vast and varied abilities. AH conirnander-in-cluef of the colonial armies from the beginning of tho war to tho proclamation of peace, as prcHideflt of the convention which framed the constitution of the United States and as the lirst 1'reni- dent of the United States under tbat Constitution, Washington has a dis- tinction difieriujj from '.hat uf alt other illustrious Americans. No other name bears or can bear such a relation to the government. Not only by his mili- tary freniuH. his patience, hid sagac- j ity, his courage, ami his skill, was uurNutioual in dependence won, but ho helped in largest measure to draft the chart by which the Nation was guided; and ho was tlio tirst chosen of the people to put in motion the new government. His was not tho boldness of martial display or tho, charm of captivating oratory, but hid calm and steady judgement won men's support aud commanded their contidcnco by appealing to their best and noblest nspirations. And wiihal Washington wns over so mnilest that at no time in his career did his personality seem in the least intrusive. He wns above the'turn put ion of power. He spurned the suggested crown. He 'ould have no honor which tno peo- ple did not bestow. An interesting fact, and one which 1 love to recall, Its that at the only time Washington formally addressed the constitutional convention during all ita sessions over which ho presided in this city, he appealed Tor a larger represeuta- tion of the people in the National House UupresontalivuK and his appeal was instantly heeded. THS hu was ever keenly watchful of the rights of the people in whoso hands was the destiny of our government then and now. Masterful as wore his military campaigns, his civil administration commands equal admiration. His foresighL was marvelous; his con- ception of the philosophy of govern- ment, his insistence upon the neces- sity of education, morality and en- lightened citizenship to the pro- gress and pnrmaneucp of the Re- public cannot bo contemplated even at this period without tilling us with itbtoiiisiimeiit at the breadth of his comprehension and the sweep of his vision. His was 110 narrow view of government. The immedi- ate present was not his solccwnct but our future good his constant Uiome of study. Ho the path of liberty. Hu laid the foundation upon which we have grown from weak ami scattered colonial govoru- mcDti to n United Republic whose domains and power as well as whose liberty and freedom have become the admiration of the world. Distimci and time have not detracted from the face and force of his achieve- ments or diminished thu grandeur of bis life anil work, (treat deeds do not stop in their growth, and those of Washington will expand in in- fluence in all the centuries to follow The bequest Washington has made to civilization is rich beyond com- putation. The obligations under which he ha? placed mankind are 1 sacred aud communtliDg. The re- sponsibility ho has left for the Amer- ican people to preserve itud perfect what he has accomplished is exact- ing aud solemn. I-et us rejoice iu evorv now evidence that thu people realiV.e what they enjoy and cherish with affection thu illiutrious heroes of revolutionary bistorv, whose valor nud sacrifices made a N'nlioa. They live in us, and their inumorj will help us keep the covenant entered into for the maintenance of the freest government on earth. Tuo Nation and the name of Wash- ington an; inseparable. One is linked indissolubly with the other. Both are glorious, both triumphant. Washington lives and will live be- cause what ho did was for the exal- tation of man, the enthronement of conscience, and the. establishment of a government which rucoguizes all the governed. And so, too, will tho Nation livo victorius over nil obsta- cles, adhering to the immortal prin- ciples which Washington taught and Lincoln sustained. Tlio Orator of the Day. Bishop Whitakcr concluded his praver with the Lord's pnwer, in which President McKinlcy joined in low tones. William M Purler, ora- tor ol the day, followed thy proni- dent. lift said in part: "WlnU shall hu said of this Wnsh- iiiglon, whose memory we do honor? A GUEAT BOAT HACK. Laml LnbberM Iteat the Naval Cadets on Salt Water Two Boat JUouKtbg. NXATOLIS, flld., Hay nell's second varsity crew won a very interesting boat race to-day tho naval cadets, beating the tailor boys by two lengths in of eleven ruinates and fifteen seconds, finishing two leugths ahead at the end of a ;wo milo straight away course, fho cadets came in seven seconds ater. It was tho prettiest race over rowed on the Severn river. The sourse laid straight away shoreward 'rom the Greenbury point light, two iiiles long, and-had uo turns. Cor- nell took water slightly in the lead, set the pace at about tnirty- Ive strokes, and the cadets were pulling herd and strong, jut not quite so rapidly. Tho water was quite rough, which appeared to trouble the Ithncana somewhat. Tho cadets were ac- customed lo rough water. Almost [rom the start Cornell began to forge slowly ahead. At one mile the New Yorkers appeared from the judges' boat to be about three lengths to the good. Then the little Green's mate shouted to the men in his boat to put on steam, and the stroke ran up to thirty.eight. Cornell too quickened her stroke, but the sailors seemed strongest at this stage and were gaining with every yard. The effort came too lato and Cornell shot past the finish amid the cheers of tho crowd and the booming ot guns, two clean lengths to the fore. EMMA EAME8 STOKY. I-iCtter Prom tho Great Ameri- can Prim a Doima From Her Home in Paris. In a recent letter from her home in Paris, Kmma Kames Story, Ameri- can prima donna, speaks thus of th splendid condition in which th Kimba.ll grand piano, purchased during her last visit in Chicago, had reached her: "I am perfectly de- lighted ovor tho condition in which my piano has arrived. The oeei voyage, which would have thrown almost any other instrument out ol tuna and out of condition, affected it no more than a gentlo push across a parlor floor. It has not required tuning: slnco it reached me. The glorious Itimball tone remains intact and without a sweet and pure snd perfect as when it charmed me in Chicago." Patti, .Nonlica, Minnie Hank, the de Res-ike brothers and mauy other world- famous operatic arista, who have purchased Kim ball pianos, have re- ferred to the same perfocttone prop- erties of these instruments in turms as forcible and spirited and clear as those of Mmo.
