information to con gress of the state of the union and make such recommendations as I may thinK and it has generally been under stood 1 think that this affirmative provi sion contains a negative and implies that the president is to give no one except congress any information as to the state of the and that he shall especially make no suggestions lhat can be in any shape 1 confess that it would give me great pleasure if the occasion were to give you some information as to tho state of the union as 1 sec and to make some suggestions as to what I think would be wise as affecting the state of

vacate the chair in your After the applause had somewhat sub sided President Harrison addressed the veterans of his old brigade as follows The object of my visit to was this meeting which wo are to have should I have been persuaded to make this trip except for tho pleasure which I expect to find in meeting the men of the old brigade from most of whom 1 have been separated since musterout Wo have had a great demonstration but I think we are drawn a little closer in this meeting and understand each other bet ter than in the larger assemblages of which we have made a It is very pleasant for me to see so many here cannat recall tho names of all of Time has wrought its changes upon tho faces of us You recognize me because there were not so many colonels as there were for the And yet some of you I re call and all of you 1 When we wore associated in the brigade in 1S62 we were all somewhat new to military duties and The officers as well as men had come together animated by a common purpose for every pure pursuit in We were not so early in the field as some of our We yield thorn the honor of longer scrvici but I think wo may claim for ourselves that when our hands were lifted to take tho enlistment oath there was no inducement for any man to go into the army under any expectation that he was entering on a In the early days of the war men or hoped it would be brief they did not measure its extent or They did not at all rightly estimate tho awful sacrifices that were to be made before peace with honor I well remember an incident of early days of volunteering in when the first companies in response to tho first call of President Lincoln came hurrying to the Among first to arrive was one from under command of Captain They came In very tumultuously and very en thusiastic for the These companies were organized into reg iments which one by one were sent into West Virginia or other fields for ser It happened that the regiment to which my friend Miller was assigned was last to leave the I met him one day on the street and a more mad and despondent soldier I never He was not absolutely choice in the use of his All the soldiers were I think the first brigade was an Miller was swearing like a pirate over the disgrace that had befallen him and his growing out of the fact that he was absolutely sure that the war would be over before they got into tho left in camp a stranded regiment having no part in putting down the his day came presently and ho was ordered to West Virginia and among the first of those who under the fire of the enemy at Rich Mountain received a bullet through his body was Captain Chris When these regiments of ours were enlisted we were notapprehen sive that the war would be over before we had any adequate share of We were pretty certain we would all have enough before we were The rlouds were dark in those days of McClcllan was shut up in the Penin sula Bucll was coming back from Alaba ma Kirby Smith was entering through the Cumberland Gap and everthing seemed I think I may claim for these men of Illinois and these men of Indinna and of Ohio that when they enlisted there was no other motive than downright pa triotism and there was no misunderstand ing of the serious import of the work on which they Those early days in which we were being trans formed from civilians into soldiers were full of trial and The officers were and unduly I anS entering a plea in my own behalf The soldiers had not yet got to understand jruard should be established why they should not be at perfect liberty to go to Hut those days passed soon and thev passed sooner when the men went into active duties in the I always noticed there was no great noed of a camp guard after the boys had marched twentyfive Then a serious time came when sickness devas tated us and disease swept its dead Then there came out of this that body of strong men ready for march and fight that made up the great armies which under Grant and Sherman and Sheridan carried tho flag to The survivors of some of them are hero today and whatever else has come to us in of honor or disappoint ment I do not think there is any of not me I am today exchange the satisfaction of heart comfort we have in having been part of a great army that subdued the rebellion that saved the the constitution and the If I were asked today to exchange it for any honor that has come to nio I would lay down any civil office rather than surrender the satisfaction I have in having been a humble partaker with you in that great Who shall measure it well generations when this country which had thirty now sixtyfour million has become one of a hundred million when these institutions of onrs grow and PRICE 45 CENTS develop and spread honors in which hap pinoss and comfort have their able ing place then we may begl to north and south wha this work was wo but imper fectly see it yet we have iee enough of the glory of the Lord to fi our souls full of quiet I An I hope there is not a soldie here In whom the love of the flag ha died I believe there is not one i whoso heart it Is not a growing passion I think a great deal of the interest of th flag wo see among the children is be cause you have taught them what th flag No one knows how beauti ful it is when we see it displayed here on this quiet October day amid these quie autumnal In those Ion tire some in those hours of srnok and battle and darkness what was ther that was beautiful except the starryban ner that floated over Applause Our country has grown and developcc and increased in riches until it is today marvelous among the nations of the sweeping from sea to sea embracing almost every touch ing the tropics and the Arctic cov ering every form of product of the soil developing in skill in the mechanica developing I trust and believe no only m those material things which arc not the do veloping also in those qualities o mind and in in the lov of in in respeci for the in a God fearing dispositior among the in love foronr coun in all these high andspiritual things I believe the soldiers in their places have made a large contribution to all these The assembling of our groat irmy was hardly so marvelous as its dis In tho olden time itwas ex pected that a soldier would be a brawler when the campaign was Ho was too of ten a Those habits of violence which he had learned in the field fol owed him to his But how differ ent it was in this war of The army sprung Into life as if by On tho called of tho martyred Illi lois greatest as I have to the They fought through the and they came out of it without demoral They returned to the very pur suits from which they had It seemed to me that it was like the wrap ing of snow which nature sometimes mts over tho earth in the winter season to protect and keep warm tho vegetation which is hidden under and ivhen tho warm days of spring uelts and disappears and settles into he earth to clothe it with verdure and beauty and with It socm to me is a good type of the disbandment if the It wrapped this country ike a mantle of defense when it was in but when the danger was passeclj ettled into every avenue and pursuit and stimulated all of them to a fresher and livelier my agi is creeping ipon 1 do nut know what our bodily trenglh would endure if another war vero to I am sure we would have a heart for it and for the flag but it is a comfort tu feel that the
