preach In a pulpit that had lieen
pointed by the presence of Henry Ward
Beecher. I think he was right about
it Id truth. I think that if Beecher's

a future life of punishments for his
weak and erring fellow- men, who have
not suffered enough here, as he con-

Naw Just n word as to his malevo-
lence, Mr. Beecher took no part In
the actual warfare of the war of se-
cession. Like a few other* ill* valor
rose as danger diminished. When the
brave men who had fought on both
sides returned to the peace, and under-
took the task of healing the wounds

ing all again In patriotism ns in a
common destiny, this human hyena, j

peace on earth and good will to men,
feund It In his craven heart to say
"It" (referring to the war between
the states i "was the worst work
satan and sin ever undertook In this
world, and they that suffered In It
were not martyrs In a good cause, but
convict* in a had one. Who shall com-
fort them that sit by dishonored
graves?" Measure, If you can, the
measureless Infamy of those words!
"Convict* in a had cause." Most of
the young men and Voting women of
this etate are the sons and daughters
of those “convicts," as the writer Is.
and they are proud of it. They are
loyal to this Union today, They are
part of Its I wine and sinew, hut they
in ver expect to hear, without resent-
ing. praise of litis maligner of their
fathers. We never expect to hear his
truthfulness asserted Without entering
our protest, language such as Beecher
used ha* found no place In the vocab-
ulary of the brave tnen who fought
tin- war for the Union. Being ltrave
men. with convictions and the cour-
age of their convictions, they respect
the convictions and courage of others.
The proper sewer for the discharge
of such a sentiment Is the mouth of
