Over 300 members of the association continued of 4th Page. On monday memorial Day was observed Over the length Aud breadth of the land. The soldiers Graves were decorated with Flowers orations were delivered and at Many places states or Mon Amente erected to the memory of the nations heroes were unveiled in the presence of reverential crowds. It is Safe to affirm however that nowhere Ditl memorial Day exercises measure up to greater Success or abound in deeper significance than in Danville. It w�3, indeed a proud Day for the veterans of Montour county especially for the soldiers Monument committee which after so Many years was permitted to enjoy in Sulci a signal manner the full fruit age of its plans and labors. Everything seemed to contribute to the Success of the event. The weather was delightful. The sky. Without port ending lain was slightly overcast wit ii Clouds so that the enu was shorn of much of its Power. Everywhere was Harmony Aud a cooperation. Which made failure whether in the Parade or in tiie exercises at the Monument. Impossible. The Parade. The program was faithfully carried out. The Parade was a colossal feature the largest Ever seen in Danville of memorial Day. It was even larger than was expected. Company a 12th regiment n. G. P. Of Sunbury joined the demonstration and together with the National guard and the g. A. Of Dauville imparted to the occasion quite a military aspect. The members of eleven different Camps of the p. O. S. Of a., some four Hundred in number marched in the Parade. It was an imposing array indeed. Besides Danville Aud Riverside were represented Camps trom the following towns sub try. Northumberland Milton Newlin Bloomsburg Shamokin dam Light Street Fowlersville Aud Washin Touville. The visiting members of the p. O. S. Of a. Were guests of Danville Camp no. 364 Aud were furnished with dinner at tiie Farmers hotel North Mill 6treet. Now closed which had been rented for the Day by tiie local Camp. The pupils of the Public and parochial schools accompanied by their teachers marched in a body and constituted an interesting feature of the third division. Wit i the exception of rhe High school All the pupils of the school were in tiie Parade. With or. P. C. Newbaker As chief marshal and t. Harley Benfield and n. Elmer Sidler As aides the different org i Vatious marched in the order designated in the line of March a hich was printed in these a a damns no no with rhe program of i i Lay a Crim. The Parade former a a Ltd Tacle. A va8t concourse. There were Many strangers in Dauville. They came of the regnar trains As Well As by tool Levy the latter chiefly from Bloomsburg Berwick and other nearby Points. Daring the Parade tie sidewalks were crowded. It was at the Park however that the congestion was most marked. From tiie moment that the first division of the Parade arrived until the addresses were Over there was a perfect Jam of people. The crowd occupied All the space in the clip run Grove As Well As on the two sidewalks of Bloom Street and on the walk in the Park leading no to the Monument. There were thousands of people on the spot. Memorial addresses. The program opened with singing a my country a tis of thee a a the bands accompanying. Rev. W. C. Mccormack d. D., pastor of the Grove presbyterian clinic i offered prayer. Hon. James Foster introduced the Rev. L. Ulrich pastor of the Trinity lutheran Church who delivered the memorial address. Or. Ulrich is recognized As one of the rising orators of this Section. It is Safe to affirm that his address monday was never surpassed by any delivered in Danville. From beginning to end rhe speaker revealed a deep sympathy with the Veteran a a sympathy with she principles for which they fought Aud a sympathy with them As they face the issues in the Days of peace. This sympathy was clearly revealed in his arraignment of tiie legislature for refusing to enact a Bill providing a state pension for soldiers. Never did the veterans hear the scenes of Battle Aud Camp described in Sulci a Rapilio terms nor hear their deeds eulogized More Eloy neatly than in or. Ulrichs address. The discourse took in the entire scope of the great conflict drawing lesson after lesson from the issues to show that the hand of god was in it All. Dedicatory address. At the Conda Sion of or. Ulrichs address adjutant general Thomas j. Stewart who was booked for the dedicatory address was introduced by Hon. Tames Foster with some complimentary remarks relating to his military record. As the occasion monday was a memorable one so general Stewart s address in scope in eloquence in sentiment and the general appropriateness of the thoughts expressed has gone of record As one of the Best and most stirring discourses Ever Beard in Dauville., leaving out the fabulous wars of Antiquity the civil War the speaker said in tiie enormous area involved the number of soldiers engaged the lives and treasurers sacrificed want the greatest conflict that Ever took place in the history of Mankind. As a great civil War in was tiie test of Republican government. It was not local in its a tire. The entire civilized world was looking on in suspense. It was not a War of one nation it was a War of the human race. The importance and the True glory of the Victory achieved therefore can be measured Only by considering what was at stake. The object of prosecuting the War the speaker said was distinctively the preservation of the Union. The freeing of the slaves was incidental the speaker paid a magnificent trill the to the soldiers of Pennsylvania. They were the most stubborn fighters Aud the determining factors in the Battle of Gettysburg and scores of other hard fought engagements. This suggested our own county and general Stewart paid the same glowing tribute to the soldiers that went ont from Little Montour. At Liis Point after speaking for about a hour general Stewart made his first ail Sion to the soldiers Monument. Addressing the citizens of Montour county he most effectively enlarged on the thought that after the lapse of years when Many still survive that participated in the great War those of another generation who share in the benefits of a United country and of Liberty and Equality firmly established in recognition of the heroism and sacrifice of the Soldier have reared a costly memorial on which a his deeds Are inscribed Aud his name perpetuated. 1 turning to the Monument and dwelling upon its elegance its stately proportions he contrasted it with a memorial reared to the great Napoleon. The latter he said perpetuates the memory of one Man great in arms who made a continent tremble. On soldiers Monument he said magnifies the career of no one Man. But of every Soldier of Montour county that fought in the civil War. It Bibb nothing to do with the principles that made Napoleon great with Conquest nor Empire. It stands for the pure principles of Freedom and Equality and tells of deeds that perpetuated a Republic that guarantees to each and everyone his individual rights. It will endure the speaker eloquently affirmed for Ages in the time of our children anti of on children s children. It will lie unto the far in Ture a message from the past a message of love Aud memory teaching lessons of patriotism. The Dedi quotation. In conclusion very Itne res sively Aud very dramatically Gece Ial Stewart dedicated the Monument to the great principles of patriotism and Freedom to the great Republic of America and to the memory of tiie soldiers who fought to quell rebellion and preserve the Union. In conclusion on Enaif of the committee and Post no. 22, g. A. R.,and of the people of Mouton county Hon. James Foster chairman tendered to the care of the Borough of Danville the Monument just dedicated hoping that it would be zealously guarded and preserved in memory of the men who fought for the preservation of the Union. The exercises closed with singing a the Star spangled Banner. A a to be unfurled fourth of july Frank e. Delong a former resident of Danville has notified the soldiers Monument committee that he intends to present the Boroug i with a Beautiful Flag to be unfurled in memorial Park on july 4th. Or. Delong made his intention known to Sam a Mccoy a member of the committee doling a stroll in tie Park following the dedication of monday noting lie absence of a Flag he quickly decided to Supply the deficiency at his own expense. Turning to or Mccoy he remarked that he would Purchase a Flag and pole for the Park spending one i indred dollars for the same he will canes the Flag with the pole to be shipped to Danville As soon As possible. He expressed a desire that the Flag be unfurled on fourth of july also that the soldiers Monument committee select the site. Or.
