In Honor of a Lost Cause.
« Yolk Home Journal.
Houston, Tex., May 27, 'H5.—We
have had a beautiful, bewildering,
exciting week. First, the crowd.
Double the population, almost, of
the town put into one space, a town
of 00,000 people entertaining 50,000
visitors! Imagine the number, the
movement, the life and color! Flags
everywhere, decorations at every
turn, the I.one Star of lexns forni-
n trio with the emblem of a lost
cause and the stars and stripes.
Every breast bore a ribbon, a badge,
a designation of some kind. Mili-
tary uniforms as numerous as civil-
ian's clothes; music always upon the
air from bands that cam.! from all
localities, tiie governor and his aids
mingling in the throng as unreserv-
edly, as jocularly as though his
handsome excellency was a mere
private citizen. United Stales sol-
liers escorting confederate veterans;
Gen. Seholield, head of the army,
and Winnie Davis, daughter of the
confederacy, both here for the same
occasion, both receiving and receiv-
ed. Oh, it was wonderful! No-
wheie but in the United Stales could
such a thing be possible. It made
one proud of American citizens and
intensified one's Americanism. The
United States band played Dixie,
and the people shouted themselves
hoarse; the southern bands gave
•■Yankee Doodle," and it was greet-
ed with good liatured yells of recog-
nition. A one-legged soldier of
Sheridan's army played host, and
royally entertained every confeder-
ate veteran lie could find who had
lost a leg or an arm. And so it was
in all things.
Then the confederate veterans
themselves, 7000 strong, with their
stories, laughter and tears; old men
embracing, private soldiers kissin
their generals, comrades who had
not met for thirty years clasped in
each others' ai ms or walking, school
boy fashion, with their arms aboit
h others' necks. Above bravt
< Jen. Stewart, of Maryland, leaned
n man not far from 50: "Do you
remember me , General? \oii
me my first commission on the hat
Some tone in the voice must have
brightened recollection, else how
could the feeble old general ha\
recognized in this elderly man the
dashing youth of 18 commissioned
in the battle field so long ago foi
bravery? But he did, and clasped
his hands with: "Yes, John, 1 do
my boy," and it was with the spirit
of that 18-year old lad that the man
knelt before his general and clasped
him in his arms. The eyes of both
were wet, and the bystanders wiped
away a tear shed in the sweet emo
lion of sympathy.
1 think every human being pres
cut during last week had higher and
holier feelings from this reunion
Think of it! there was not one
case of disorder or fussing on the
streets, and no profanity, no drunk
enness, not an accident, not a quar
rcl. Houston, a railroad town and
often disorderly, was kept in order
by her overwhelming influx of vis-
itors. 1 have seen only two police-
men during my stay here. One
stood at the side of Winnie Davis'
carriage and made known her re-
quest that the people should not
stop to shake hands, but bow and
pass on, as she was so very tired.
That was enough, a foot of clear
space was left as the columns lilcil
by. With bare heads, worshipping
faces and hats in hand, the veterans
passed the woman whose word to
them was law. Impressive? Vol
umes could not have said as much
as that simple scene. The day be-
fore the whole city had given her
nn ovation such as 1 do not think
imy woman ever received before.
It was a grand and exliiUniting
sight. I believe every man there
would have died for iier. She re-
ceived it nil beautifully, showing
that she realized that in her they
idealized the sweet, solemn and high
memories of a mighty epoch in their
lives. Lkk C. IIakiit.
