from Cuba. .Time
will right the wrong for the men who
were wronged, and the plaudits show
ered npon the marching ranks on Mem
orial day were not extravagant and not
undeserved. While General Shafter was
in command of the department of the
east after bis return from Cuba, a mus
tered out Seventy-first man approached
his old commander one day in a public
place and quite timidly asked the privi
lege of shaking his hand. The matter
was pnt to Shafter in this form, “Gen
eral, here is a Seventy-first man who
wishes to know if yon’ll shake hands
with a member of that regiment?”
“With pleasure," said Shafter, tak
ing the blushing boy's hand and laying
hold of his arm in a fatherly way. “I
am always ready to greet a soldier of
the Seventy-first. Ycurs is a good regi
ment, and don’t you ever he ashamed
of it. The only trouble in it all was
that the officers fell to quarreling when
they got home. The regiment was all
right in the field, and did no worse than
hundreds of regiments have done in the
first campaign. Hud the war lasted a
few months longer the Seventy-first
would have been as good as the best."
Snap judgments on the Seventy-first
at San Jnan are unfair and nnjnst to
say the least. Notwithstanding all the
heroes the Spanish war produced, not
one can he Bpared. The Seventy-first
has heroes on its rolls. At one time it
seemed as though they had to he
brought out with a searchlight. Now
its the cowards and failnres who are to
be picked ont singly. Said a veteran
regular officer at Camp Wikoff, “Give
the Seventy-first Krag-Jorgensens and
smokeless powder in place of their
Springfields and they are regulars. ’’
There have been many good things
said of this volunteer militia regiment
by their regular comrades. In compari
son with the showing of the New York
Seventh in the Spanish war crisis the
Seventy-first should be entitled to an
ovation if it hadn’t smelled powder at
all. But it did smell powder. It lost 16
men killed outright or died of wounds
and 76 deaths by disease contracted in
the trenches in Cuba. This was over 10
per cent of its strength.
Aside from these honorable sears, the
regiment made a good record in the
field and in the trenches. There is one
thing that every soldier knows which
counts in the favor of these militia
boys. Cowards cannot be drawn into
battle by chains, and if by any means
they are tricked into, getting within
bullet range they may always find an
excuse to crawl out of the dilemma.
The mass of the rank and file of the
Seventy-first acted all right at the San
Juan ford and on the hill. They didn’t
show cowardice, and to a man would
have displayed heroism had they been
older hands or had proper leadership.
It is to be noted that not an officer
of the Seventy-first waS killed or strick
en mortally by fever. The two officers
who came ont unmistakable heroes
were prostrated with fever as soon as
they reached the north. These were
Major Keck and Captain Rafferty. For
a time there were conflicting stories
about Major Keck, but I discovered
at Camp Wikoff that the men in the
ranks classed Keck and Rafferty togeth
er as the heroes of the* day, shutting
out all other officers.
When the regiment came home, Keck
didn’t pose as a hero, bat be talked like
one. When asked for his story, he said:
“My story is simply the story of the
Seventy-first regiment. I never saw
skirmishers deploy as well as the Sev
enty-first men deployed on the field of
battle. The intervals were perfect. The
men were as calm as thongh they had
been drilling at state camp.”
“But, major,” said the interviewer,
“the boys said that you led them, wav
ing a red bandanna handkerchief.”
“Nonsense! The Seventy-first regi
ment in that fight led itself.”
“But you were out ahead, were you
“Well, I followed in front.” an
swered the major, with a smile. “But
we were all right there. Kafferty was
right with us, and so was his command,
Company F. I tell you Rafferty and his
men were all right.”
Major Keck’s Third battalion com
prised Companies B. L, K and E.
Like the true hero, the major would
not talk of his own deeds and experi
ences—only the regiment, the regiment.
Raiferty was also reluctant to talk of
himself, but at length did respond for
the credit of his company. His story I
also obtained from the lips cf a regulur
oflicer who, as aid to General Kent,
directed Rafferty in action. The first
official praise of these two officers came
in the report of Major Phil Reade, in
spector general of Kent’s division and
a fine specimen of veteran soldier. Aft

command, “Is there an officer here who
will obey an order from General Kent?”
To this Rafferty promptly responded
that he would obey any and every order
from General Kent. He was told what
to do. Major Keek also responded, and
his battalion was placed in liDe to fol
low or go beside the regulars then hur
rying to support the colnrnn attacking
San Juan hill. Major Reade gives praise
to Keck for readiness to act and cool
ness. He didn't stand on ceremony and
demand that orders come through the
regnlar channels, but fought when and
where he was told.
Since the investigation and govern
or’s report on the conduct of the regi
ment that day former Lieutenant John
M. Thomson of the Third battalion has
told the story so long held secret of
what the battalion did at San Jnan
HilL He shows, like Major Reade, that
the Third battalion, last in line, was
not Berioneiy affected by the wavering of
the troops ahead, and continues:
Major Reade, of Kent’s staff, asked Major Keck,
commanding the Third battalion, if he would
obey any orders from Kent. . Upon receiving In
affirmative reply Major Reade directed hitn to
carry his battalion to the front, which was imme
diately done. Advancing through the trail, the
Third battalion passed the Second and First bat
talions. Major Keck directed the battalion to ford
San Juan river.
Arriving on the other side of the river in the
high grass, the battalion was again formed and
speedily executed the command of Major Keck,
which was, “Left front into line of squads as
I have never seen the maneuver more perfectly
executed on parade. In this order the battalion
crossed the field, which was about *2OO yards in
width and 800 yards in length and proceeded up
to the brow of San Juan hill to the left of the
blockhouse. When we reached the top, we found
Captain Rafferty and F already there. By direc
tion of General Kent the battalion was marched
to the left for the distance of about one-quarter
of a mile to find the left of the Sixteenth in
fantry. Not being able to find the Sixteenth,
Major Keck marched us back to our previous po,
sitlon on the top of San Juan hill. There has
been no claim that the Third battalion led the
regiment into action, but the Third battalion does
claim that they were first on the hill after Cap
tain Rafferty, who had preceded the Third bat*
talion by about ‘2O minutes.
I decry as much as anybody the undue credit
given to the Seventy-first and the rough riders
for the capture of San Juan hill, but I do claim
for Company F and the Third battalion that they
were present at the taking of San Juan hill and
most materially assisted in doing so. The Thlr<
battalion closely followed the footsteps of the
Twenty-fourth infantry, the fact of which can be
substantiated by nearly all, if not all, the officers
of the Twenty-fourth infantry.
While at Camp Wikoff the writer
personally verified the statements mads
by officers of the regiment to the effect
that 58 men of the Seventy first report
ed on the rolls as missing the night of
July 1 were not shirking, but, were in
among the regulars, having charged ths
hill with them. Major Webb, inspector
general of the Second division, says
that when the regulars marched through
the prostrate Seventy-first in the trail
they were greeted with such cries from
the New 7 Yorkers ns, “Go in, boys, and
give it to them!” “We wish we were
going along W’ith you!” “Say, take us
along with you!” Ask any old soldiers
if that is the language of cowards and
shirks on the edge of the battlefield.
The gallant Captain Parker of the Gat
lings laments that the Seventy-first men
cheered his guns as they went in and
drew Spanish fire. But all this cheering
and calling for leaders shows that the
grit of the misguided boys was all right.
It was a place to rattle the oldest vet
erans, but the moment a leader showed
himself who could lead, the Seventy
first men were as valorous as the best.
All who left their own ranks to join the
regulars fought like heroes, and then
went back to their own colors.
Captain Rafferty finally told his
story, and said: “My company pushed
right along and forded the creek, which
was up to their necks. From the creek
up to the blockhouse was an open
space, which the Spaniards just swept
with volleys. We clambered along to
ward the eminence cn which the fort
stood. Adjutant Tayman of the Twenty
fourth infantry, one of the colored regi
ments, a splendid officer and man, came
up and said, ‘Where are you going?’
“I replied, ‘Up the hill.’
“ ‘Good!’ said he.< ‘You’re the kind
we want. ’ So along with the regulars
Company F went up. ”
Tayman said that it was as Rafferty
claimed; that he, Tayman, directed
Rafferty how to get his company to do
execution, and Rafferty, after the bat
tle, hunted him out to thank him for
it. Said Tayman, “Rafferty did

Juan hill, and to Private Charles Ed

(Heroes of the Seventy-first.]
for a man in the ranks. Major Reade
said in his report that this soldier “ren
dered voluntary, efficacious and unre
mitting care to the wounded and sick.
He merits official recognition.”
The name of Corporal Robert Gordon
Everett of Company L belongs in the
list of heroes in the ranks. He acted as
orderly for Major Keck and carried or
ders under fire, earning among his com
rades the title of “Boy Hero of Santi
ago.” After passing through all the ex
posure unharmed be died at home of
typhoid fever, contracted in camp.
Stern and unrelenting judgment
should fall upon the cowardly and in
competent fellows who misrepresented
this noble band that day of battle, but
to Keck, Rafferty, Edwards and the rest
the hand and voice of every soldier wbo
knows what real war is will be raised
at the mention of the Empire State boys
in the taking of San Juan bill.

Odd Fellow’ Celebration.
Special to News-Herald,
Bi’ford, Ga., July 4, 1899.
The Buford Odd Fellows cele
brated the 4th hero today by a
picnic. On April 20th, the time
of holding the anniversary, Buford
Lodge could not celebrate owing
to the fact that small-pox , pre
vailed ; hence the postponement
to July 4th. Sister Lodges were
invited, and the citizens of Buford
Bro. Alex. Bitter, Grand Mas
ter of Georgia; Bro. A. C. Ward,
Grand Chaplain : Bro. N. L. Hutch
ins, Jr , of Lawrencevill" Lodge,
and Hon. W. T. Smith had been
invited to speak for us, and all
were on hand. Bast Grand Mas
ter Brand was also invited, but a
letter was read from him express
ing regret that he could not be
present, owing to the fact that
official business prevented.
Early in the morning the breth
ren began to arrive, until by the
time for assembling at the Lodge
room —9 o’clock—there was a very
large number of Odd Fellows pres
Bro. W. M. Shelley, as Marshal
of the day, organized the long
procession and proceeded to the
depot to meet the Grand Master
and visitors, who arrived on the
10 o’clock train from Atlanta.
Upon their arrival they were as
signed the posts of honor in the
procession, and the line of march
taken up to the big spring, where
seats had been provided for the
people, and a stand erected for the
speakers, officers, etc.
Bro. M. B. Sewell, as master of
ceremonies, then announced that
the program would commence by
singing the opening Ode, after
which the Grand Chaplain, Rev.
A. C. Ward, offered a most fervent
and eloquent prayer.
Bro. J. E. Cloud had been elect
ed to welcome the Brethren in be
half of Buford Lodge. The words
of welcome and hospitality that
fell from his lips provod the wis
dom of the selection.
Then Bro. W. W. Wilson, as
Mayor of Buford, gave all our vis
itors a cordial welcome to the City
It was not thought amiss ou this,
the occasion of our nation’s birth
day, to have patriotism expressed,
and upon request Bro. A.C. Ward
very impressively read the Decla
ration of Independence,after which
Bro Wilson commented on it.
Then Bro.N. L. Hutchins, Jr.,
of Lawrenceville Lodge, No. 21, in
behalf of the visiting Brothers, re
sponded to the welcome address.
In words chaste and chosen, he
proved to the audience his adapta
bility to please. •
Then came the Hon. W. T.
Smith, who, as everyono knows,
who knows Smith of Gwinnett,
made an eloquent address on the
principles and practices of our be
loved Order. This speech was en
joyed by all.
It was intended for the Grand
Master to have spoken next, but
the hour for dinner having ar
rived, it was decided by the com
mittee on arrangements to dofer
his speech until after dinner.
Recess for one hour was an
nounced. Then such a feast, such
a repast, such hospitality, was
spread and tendered, enjoyed and
appreciated. Everybody, old and
young, Brethren and citizens, all
enjoyed the bountiful and elegant
dinner; until, reassembling, pleas
ant conversation was indulged in
by merry groups, old acquaintan
ces renewed, and new ones made.
Punctually at the expiration of
the time set apart for recess, the
audience reassembled to hear the
remainder of the program.
First came the Grand Master of
the Stale cf Georgia, Alex. Hitter.
Bro. Ditter, after a it ’"“’’“ns
remarks, plunged into Odd fel
lowship, making us a most instruc
tive, interesting and happy speech.
Truly, Bro. Ditter is a grand Grand
Master, and royally wears the hon
ors ho has nobly won by long con
tinued service and devotion to the
Next came Bro. A. C. Ward,
Grand Chaplain, Bro. Ward is
well known to Buford Odd Fel

with such fervor, pathos and hu

good fight valently for Friend
ship, Love and Truth.” Noble
man, your reward will come when
you shall triumphantly enter the
golden gates of the Grand Lodge
above, there forever to dwell with
the Great Grand Master of us all.
Next came ghort speeches by
members of various Lodges. Bro.
Smith, of Zion Hill, Bro. Pitman,
of Centre Road, aud Bro. Merritt,
of Buford Lodge, all acquitted
themselves with credit to them
selves and their Lodges.
The Doxology was then sung,the
Benediction pronounced and the
Thus passed one of the happiest,
most pleasant, profitable and en
tertaining of days. There was not
a single unpleasant ooourrance to
mar the occasion.
Great praise is due the choir of
the Baptist church for the sweet
and beautiful music they rendered
all through the program.
The Grand Master held a short
informal reception, then the pro
cession re-formed and marched
back to the Hall, where Odd Fel
lowship held supreme dominion
for some time. We then laid our
regalia aside, and wended our way
homeward, happy and contented,
satisfied with a day well spent.
May good come of it.

When it is said that the mud and
sand to lie removed from the New
York harbor to make the new chan
nel to the sea, if deposited in the
East river, would be sufficient to
make the river dry land from Bbore
to shore, and from the Battery to
Hell Gate, some idea of the colos
sal undertaking may be obtained,
says a New York letter. It is es
timated that nearly 50,000,000 tons
of mud and sand must be removed
in order to make the East channel
40 feet deep and 2,000 feet wide.
Congress has appropriated the mon
ey, the engineers have drawn the
plans and contracts are being let.
In order to make the channel it is
considered necessary to build new
dredges, which will draw up the
sand by means of suction pumps.
These dredges will be 820 feet long
and nearly 48 feet wide, and will
have a capacity of 8,000 tons an
hour. It will take a year to build
the dredges,and probably two years
more to do the work.

Monday morning one of Pike
county’s oldest and most influen
tial citizens, Capt. Elijah F. Mar
tin, passed peacefully away. Capt.
Martin was and had for a long
time been the wealthiest man in
the county. He took a lively in
terest in current affairs. Al
though near 80 years old, he read
extensively the leading publica
tions of the day. By reason of
his wealth and wide personal in
fluence he could have attained
time and again high political
honors, but his modesty and
knowledge of the emptiness of
such things always prevented him.

Telegraph: The people of our
town regretted very much the un
pleasantness caused by a kiss in
the school exhibition here. One
young man kissed a girl on the
stage, which was part of the play.
The young lady’s brother ap
proached the young man after the
exercises were over and a general
shooting match occurred. For
kissing the young lady the young
man was put under a $250 bond.
One of the participants has left
for parts unknown, the other
joined the regular army and sailed
a few days ago for the Philippines.
Several lives are still blighted.

Sal lio May, the little daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Brooks, passed
away on Sunday morning May 7.
She passed from life into that
beautiful home beyond, where all
is peace and love. Little Sallie
was a sweet little babe. I know
tis hard to have to give her up,
but death loves a shining mark.
It is sad to think that we shall no
more hear her sweet little voice,
but the Lord knows best. She
was sent here on earth for a bless
ing, but has completed her course
and won the victory. She has
paid the debt we all must pay,
and is new watching and waiting
for loved ones left behind. May
we all so live that when the hour
for our departure comes there will
be many loved ones to welcome
us to that beautiful city of gold.

furious fighting of 1804 the ranks
of the veterans have been greatly

have held annual reunions. The

George Tidwell, a white boy,

arrested near Marietta the other
day. Tidwell escaped from jail
several months ago. He is charged
with rape. When Tidwell saw the
officers who went for him he at
tempted to escape by jumping in a
very deep ditch. Sheriff Bishop
jumped in on him and had a terri

he fought like a tiger. His moth

young Tidwell’s rescue, but were
warned off by the flourishing of a

The Albany Herald correctly
says: Many communities are de

to their aid and are chasing will,

might as well convince ourselves
without wasting valuabl time that
if we are to have factories we must
build them with our own capital.
The experience of North and
South Carolina should not be lost
in Georgia; we should meet the
proposition squarely by putting
our own dollars into the coveted
mills. After we have blazed the
way and foreign capital discovers
that we are not afraid to trust
ourselves it will come to seek in
