So Fleisher Co, MEN'S AMD BOYS' FOR JEWELL KANSAS HE IS STATE 150,000 Soldiers' Came From Battlefields to Conquer the Wilderness. KANSANS EXPRESS GRATITUDE They Will Have Great Reunion In New Memorial Hall at Topeka Homecoming May Draw Persons. fifty years ago Kansas was invaded byan army of 150,000 men. It was a peaceful army, fresh from the scenes of carnage. The march to Kansas was not organized In companies, battalions and regiments, for the men came in ones, twos and threes; they were the flower of that Grand Army that heeded the call of Lincoln, and that followed the leadership of Grant, Sherman," Sheridan, Thomas, Hooker, Konecranz and all the great generals in the war for the Union.

They came to subdue a wilderness, to conquer a dewert and to build state, the rights and liberties of whose pioneers they defended with such self-sacrificing devotion and steadfast courage. Great Homecoming in May. And so, in the last week of May, In Topeka, in a great homecoming of Kansans, the state will testify its respect and gratitude to the memory of this great army of men who blazed the way and builded the foundation of a commonwealth that in Its first fifty years of history is the marvel of the world. It is fitting, therefore, that the citi zens of Kansas who have been immeasurably blessed through the achievements wrought by the soldiers of the Union, should assemble at the state capital in May and participate in the last statewide reunion of the Grand Army of the Republic. The dedication of the half million dollar Memorial hall, now nearly ready for occupancy, will be an event in which every Kansan should be interested.

Only a few thousand of the army of 150,000 soldiers came to build the state are living, but every one of these with their children and grandchildren will be here if plans now under way are carried out. Special cars for their comfort, and from other sections of the state special trains will be run to carry the soldiers and their friends to the great dedication ceremonies. Memorial hall, the most beautiful marble structure in the West, is the monument erected by a grateful people to the soldiers of Kansas. Its dedication will be an event that will kindle anew the spirit of patriotism; it will be three days of patriotic instruction aftd renewing of friendships. Kvery man, woman and child in Kansas would be benefited by the participation in these exercises.

Near Memorial Day. Addition significance is given to this great statewide reunion of soldiers and citizens, because it comes Just before the national holiday when all classes of our people meet in their several communities to decorate the graves of departed relatives and friends. The Inspiration that will come from the dedication of Memorial hall, and the great patriotic addresses to be delivered by National Department Commander Gardner, Mrs. John A. Logan and other speakers of nationwide note, together with the array drills and concerts by six bands, will serve to kindle anew the fires of patriotism.

It all will be an appropriate lesson, preceding as It will the exercises of Decoration Day in every community of the state. D. O. M. SPECIAL TRAINS FOR TOPEKA They Will Be Needed to Carry the Soldiers and Citizens to the Great May Reunion.

Correspondence from old soldiers coming to the headquarters of the Grand Army of the Republic at Topeka shows a remarkable interest in the coming great reunion and dedication services to be held there May 20, 27 and 28. The percentage ot soldiers living who will not be present at this state wide patriotic jubilee will be very small. Every one who can make the trip, even from the remotest corners of the state will be here if the plans of Department Commander Harrison are carried out. In many counties arrangements will be made for special cars for the com fort of the veterans in what will prob ably be their last state-wide reunion, and their final visit to their state capital. With the soldiers will come their children, grandchildren and friends.

In some ot the counties the children and friends of the old vet erans are raising a fund to pay the expenses ot the trip to Topeka. Large Number of Specials. Just how many special trains carrying visitors to the reunion and dedicatory services will be run, has not been determined. The Santa Fe probably will run three or four; one from Wichita as a center, one from Dodge City to accommodate the veterans tad tan Kff in MANKATO on Monday.

Slavery is but half abolished, emancipation Is but half completed, while millions of freemen with votes in tbelr hands are left without education. Justice to them, the welfare of the states in which they live, the safety of the whole republic, the dignity of the elective franchise all alike demand that the still remalnlug bonds of Ignorance shall be unloosed and broken and the minds as well as the bodies of the emancipated go free.

Robert C. roads centering at Topeka would be necessary to accommodate the people who will come to join in the dedication of the state's Grand Army Memorial Hall, erected at a cost of a hair million dollars. "I consider the dedication of this great marble building and the Grand Army encampment on the day preceding that exercise, together with the rounding out of a tremendous statewide Kansas home-coming and patriotic Jubilee the third day, to combine into one momentous occasion that will stand In the history of our state as the greatest and best, in both numbers of people present and in the Influence for good, and for true patriotism and state pride upon the present and future generations." This was the statement made by Commander Harrison. Harrison Works Overtime. For two years Department Commander Harrison has worked every day and many times far into the night In pushing the work and plans so that Memorial Hall would be completed and ready for this great event.

Few of the soldiers and citizens of the state realize how great has been the service rendered by "Curley" Harrison without money and without price, as he has watched and hurried and pressed the work on this grand marble building which will ever be the pride of every citizen. The day has not been too stormy nor the night too dark for him to be In the front of operations, having in view only the completion of the memorial to the soldiers of Kansas at as early a day as possible. At the last Grand Army encamp ment an unusual honor was paid to Department Commander Harrison. He was re-elected so that he might go forward and help complete his work, That work was the completion of i Hall, a labor and service he willingly gave to his comrades and state. And so when the soldiers and citizens visit Topeka iMay 26, 27 and 28, one of their pleasures will be to meet and clasp hands with their com rado who lias so generously and pa triotically planned and worked for the completion and dedication of the grandest monument ever elected by any state to its Union soldiers.

D. O. M. THEY DID THIS FOR KANSAS Peo-le Will Marvel Fifty Years Hence at State's Achievements While "Eoys of '61" Lived. The part played by Kansas during the War of the Rebellion the marvelous growth of the state in population since 18C4; Its agriculture and manufactures; its schools and colleges, are accomplishments of fifty years in state building that has no parallel in the history of the Nation.

Fifty years hence the. people will marvel at the mighty achievements of this young state during the lives of the soldiers of the Civil War who battled for its freedom. The people of Kansas will come together at their state capitol, May 2G, 27 and 28, to pay tribute to the soldiers and pioneers who were courageous and loved truth, and who builded the foundation of this splendid state. These men and women believed in education; they started the church and made Kansas "a land ot steady habits." They planted trees and flowers in a desert and made it a garden of beauty. In the last week in May, the most beautiful season of all the year, at the close of the grandest epoch of fifty-years' history making known to the world, soldiers and citizens, and the sons and daughters of pioneers will assemble at their state capitol to rejoice In these achievements.

The children and grandchildren of these veterans and pioneers are coming to join in the three days of patriotism, and to make a pledge that they will carry forward the great work of state and character building so efficiently established by their fathers and mothers. It It Memorial Hall, In history and law, the great Temple of Fame, erected to the memory of the soldiers and sailors of Kansas, at Topeka, will ever be known as Memorial hall. It will be dedicated as such on the 27th of May, when, it Is expected. 100,000 Kansans will assemble in the state capitol to do honor to the soldier citizenship that has been so great a factor in the building of the state.
