Tha BerTic«*i at the Soldiers' Home. The skies were lowering yesterday, as il tilled with a flood of unshed tears— tbe silent, deep, but undemonstrative Brief for the heroes who laid down their lives (or their country. The observance of Memorial day was narked by a more than usual interest among the younger generation, who manifested a lively sense of what was due to the men who marched to the Iront in the dais of '61. One of the most interesting ceremonies of the day was the decoration of the graves at Evergreen cemetery. Frank Bartlett and Kenesaw posts of the Orand Army conducted the services here, and one of the striking ieatures was the presenoe of several hundred school ohildren from tbe Boyle Heights schools and the members of the Women's Relief corps. Tbe members of Frank Bartlett post concluded the exercises at tbe Post monument and the services were read by Commander F. VV. Stein, with the aeaiatance of Adjutant Davia. The choir, eoneiating of Mrs. Whelan, Mra. Hemb, Mrs. Reel, Mra. Ruyle, Dr. Parker, Mr. farkhuret and George Hanna, made sweet music daring the services. The address was delivered by Chaplain Fairbanks, who spoke ol the general oh servance of tbe day and the fact that even if the veterana were dying oat the coming race of Americans were perpetuating the custom of commemorating tbe brave deeds of tbe dead. A mournful feature of the ceremony was the reading by Adjutant Davis of the list oi old aoldiera who bave died during the past year aud who were buried in the G. A. R. section of Evergreen cemetery: Carlos Beaeey, First lowa cavalry; A. R. Jones, Twenty-first lowa cavalry; John Schneider, Fifth United Statea cavalry; John Reding, New York heavy artillery; David Hoover, Second California volunteers; E. Kotchwitz, Twenty-eighth Ohio volnnteera; H. O. Steele, One Hundred and Sixty-first New York volnnteera; H. P. Perry, Fourteenth Maine volunteera; John Cargill, Forty-seventh Wisconsin volunteers. Joseph Busbey, Missouri cavalry, buried at Roaedale. Jacob Stengle, Oue Hundred and Sixteenth New York volnnteera, and Wilson Slater, One Hundred and Eightyaecond Ohio volunteers, buried at Newhall. Nathaniel Sherman, Ninty-Sixth Illinois volunteers, buried near the O A. K. plot in Evergreen. Edward Reed, Fourth Massachusetts artillery, buried at the National home. After the impressive ritual of the G- A. R., a aquad of National guardsmen from Company A of the Seventh infantry fired a volley over the graves. The aervices observed at the plot of Keneaaw poat, in the cemetery, were equally of an impressive character, and were conducted by Commander Muasey. An earneat addreas was delivered by Comrade S. M. Dodge of Lincoln poat No. 1 of San Francisco. The music waa rendered by the First ward quartette —Meesrs. K. M. Flood, O. 8. Laws, jr , J. B. Elmore and S. P. Binoot. Miss Vernie Koeberlein delivered a selected poem, and the tiring squad was made up of the third company ol tbe Boya' brigade, under command of Captain Muaaey. AT ROBEDALK CEMETERY. The ceremonies over tbe fallen soldiers at Roaedale cemetery were conducted under tbe auaplcea of Stanton poat of the G. K. X , and were of a singularly impressive character. The children of the Pico Heights and Roaedale scboole were present to participate in tbe obaervancea of tbe exercises in honor of tbe boya in blue. After each and every grave had been decked with (lowers, Coiaiade Thomas Bounded tbe bugle oall and then Commander J. A. Osgood delivered a feeling address, in which he paid just tribute to the glorious dead. Ihe school children sang a patriotic song and prayer was offered by Captain Baxter. The address of tbe day was delivered by Comrade Will Knighten, who told of the trials of bivouac and battle, and the brave deeds of tbe comrades who bad crossed tbe mystic sea of eternity. Allot the members of tbe post then joined in singing, Tenting Tonight on the Old Camp Ground. A poem was read by Comrade J. A. Pugh, a(ter which followed the beautiful ritual. America was sung, and after the pronouncing of tbe benediction Comrade Thomas Bounded taps on the bugle and the ceremonies ended. THE OLD CITY CEMETERY. Out at the old City cemetery tbe ceremonies were under the charge ol John A. Logan post. Early in the morning the post, preceded by a squad of Sons oi Veterans, marched to the cemetery under command of Comrade Walsh. The veterans formed a hollow square, and prayer was offered by Rev. ti. B. Morrison, tbe obaplain of the post. The ritual was then read by Commander Walsh, and then, after a song, an interesting address was delivered by Chaplain Morrison, which closed the exercises. AT SIMPSON TABERNACLE. Tha Farad*, tha Addresses and tha Servloea. Tbe parade formed at the corner of Main and Fifth streets and started at 2 o'clock prompt, following the itinerary which had been advertised. It was made np of: Mountoi squad of police, headed by Chief mass. Two platoons of foot odineri, commanded by Captain Robert*. Grand ioarthai aud stall. A battalion of the Seventh regiment N. 9. C, MaJ. M L. Starin commanding. Boys' brigade, Col. X. K. Han lot in commanding. Stanton post, J. A Osgood commander. Kenesaw po»t, N. I). Munsey commaudei. Logan post. J G. Waish commander. Frank Uartiett post, K. W. Stern co .inlander. Sous ol Veterans, J, C. Koifl'commander. The ladies of the VV. B. C. and ti. A. R. joined tbe prunes don at tha corner of Sixth and Olive streets, and they were so numerous as to materially lengthen the parade. Long before it reached Simpson tabernacle, large crowds of people had been pouring into that spacious church, tue auditorium having been reserved exclusively lor the members of the Grand Army, and when tho galleries were filled to overcrowding, further access was refused to the tabernacle. The interior waa oue mass of stars and stripes, and ttie rostrum waa loaded with flowers. It took quite a wtiile before all the eeata in tbe auditorium were tilled, but as aoon aa this was done, the impressive exercises were inaugurated by bugle calls by Comrade 0. I'iiouiua Tbe Lorelei club, composed of Misßea Elizabeth ti. Kimball, Mary L. Young, Alice It. Eaton ond-Edith Gardner sang Lead Kindly Light. Major Daniel Jones, president of the day, then read the general orders, and the Lorelei quartette gave Arrow and the Song. Rev. Will A. Knighten made an impreesive and loving invocation which waa haiened to witli reverent attention. Then came Mrs. Kate Tupper Galoin, who delivered an addreas to the boya ol '94 about tbe boya of 'til. Mre. Galpiu'e voice ia very clear, and ahe waa beard without any difficulty whatever throughout the large tabernacle. She is a very goud speaker, and her addreas was co much relished that she was many times forced to pause because of tbe applause, which ahe teceived at telling paasagea. Mra. Galpin said: A year ago I was in a bleak Michigan village. Tbe timid wild flowers had scarcely budded ; the plants of tbe gardens blossomed sparingly, and each struggling flower waa watched with anxious solicitude. The single cluster of bloom on the potted geranium, tbe lonely calla lily, even the Bad-colored leaves of tbe foliage planta which under our akiea aeeume the huea of flame, were gathered together to be again co placed tbat tbe soldiers' graves on the bleak hillside might not aeem to be forgotten. To my California eyes the scanty supply of bloom, tbe dull colore aoemed patbetic, pitiful almost. Yet the spirit ol aelfaacritice, of reverence aud of patriotism was none tbe less manliest than in our own lavish florai od'eringa todai, aa those old placed a (lower on each grace-grown mound saying, "This I do in memory of tbe deeds that were dune," and those younger placed a blossom at each simple headstone, saying, "This Ido in reverence for tbem tbat are dead, though their deeds 1 do not remember." A generation bas ariseu since tbe war who have no memories of the struggle. A gay procession, witb music sounding, flags waving, crowda surging, aa tlie boya of 'til prepared lor tbe conflict; a dark morning, witb tears in the sky. aa a sobbing mother and children go slowly down tbe lave aud stand in the dreary dampness to watch a father out of sight. over the bill, on his way "to tbe war;" a midnight awakeuing to ace witb wondering, terror-tilled eyea the mother aitting by the candle poring with tearataiued face over tbe paper on the table before ber, and to bear in answer to the question, "Why, mamma, what is tbe matter?" tbe agonized cry, "O, my child, my child, 'Old Abe' ia dead 1" the return of a neighbor's boy mortally wounded, hia subsequent death and military funeral; this ia what tbe war meant to me. Mnntha of privation, days of dreary ma clung, nights of loneliness and dmuouragemeut, battles, prison life, wounds, death ol comrades, heart sick weeks in comtortless boapitals, thia ia what it means to sume ol yon, Tbe giving up of lather, sous or brothers, years ol anxiety, of hope deterred, and care, daya ol dread only equalled in pain by the nights of sleepless agony that followed, weeks of waiting - waiting until your sick heart found ita wjrat ears realized iv the death ol the hero who-e fate bad been co anxiously followe —that ia what it means to others of you. The preeervation of the union and the freeing of 4,1)00,000 human beings from the bonda ol slavery by means of an beroio atruggle in which the bsst blood of the land waa shed—thia ia what it means to us all. A civil war in which one half of a great republic took up arms. agaiiißt the other, not iv defense of principalities, but iv defense of principles—this ie what it means to the world. O, the marvel of that conflict! How little tbe boye of 'tiu knew themselves! Did they love their country? They perhaps nad never asked themselves that question. They could not have answered it if they had. The passive months moved on aimlessly, aa do tbe months of most young men. Suddenly tbey realized tbat their country waa in danger. Dissolution, ruin and disgrace threatened it. Then they knew by a divine awakening that love of country waa greater than love of parent, brother, child or wife—stronger than iove of life iteelf; that iove of country includes all other loves. How true tbey were to thia great love, the years that followed atteat. How much they sacrificed for it, the graves you have today strewn LOS ANGELES HERALD, MORNING, MAY 31. 1894. with roses and lilies bear witness, bat not these graves alone. Look at the veterans before us—their forms too early bent, their hair too early gray, their faces writ with the hieroglyph of suffering, bear more eloquent testimony to those of us who will read aright. While we pay our tribute of respect to tbe heroes dead, let us not forget tbe heroes living, whose lives were as ireely offered, and have been as ireely e'veu for their country's good, although not yielded up in one supreme moment. And bow, boys of '95, with the great white future before you, longing for battles to fight, tor victories to win, are you jealous for the sake of the possible hero within you, of the opportunities for heroism which were offered the boys of '017 Are you saying to yourselves: "All the battles are fought; all opportunities for heroism bave passed'"" Do you wish, with a young man I know, "tbat there was something for a fellow to go in for nowadays?" Know thia of a truth, O ye potential heroes, it is not great men's deaths but great men's lives, that have made our country glorious; tbe bloodless rather than the bloody battles, tbat have made it truly great. The heorism of so-called great deeds needs little emphasis, hut the heroism of the greater deeds men call little, cannot too strongly be made clear. Truth to the small fidelities, cheer under straining of burdens of weariness or pain, privation or disappointments, faithfulness to the unpopular conviction requires a greater and a rarer courage than that which holds a man before a cannon's mouth. Do not mourn because all the great things were done before you were. born. The beet has not been, but is to be. Never were there greater opportunities for achievement than now. Our country is still in the infancy of ita development; acience has but begun to reveal ita wonders; unaolved problems of humanity cry ont for solution; wrong and Buffering wage deadly war, and the cry goes out for "one hundred thoueand more" to meet them in battle to the death ; the public Bcboola are to be defended againat their active foea, and the education of the whole people to be accomplished; there are great wronga in partiaan politics to be righted ;. there are tremendous battles between labor and capital to be fought. God grant that tbey may be bloodless battles! Intemperance with ita awful allies is to be overthrown. There is a great conflict waging against war itself. Opportunities for beroiam passed! They are innumerable. On to battle, ye boya of '94, aud let ttiis be your war cry : " We'll make our country as great aB it ia big." It was given tbe heroes who sleep on tbe hill top yonder, kissed by the sunabine and caressed by the sea breeze, to die for our dear motheiland. Remember there ia given you the much more trying duty of living for her. God grant tbat you may do your part aa heroically and aa well aa tbey did tbelra The boys of '7ti established thia government and freed it from old world control; the boya of 'til preserved ua a nation aud broke the chains of the slave, so that today we stand a free people. And aa freedom ia echoed aud re-echoed in your hearts, ye boyß of 1894, from the dying lipa of the heroea who bave given ua tbia liberty, will yon not, "having your loins girt about with truth, aud having ou tbe breaatplate of rigbteouaneea," enlist for a new conflict, aud never desert and never ask lor discharge until the American is not only a free man, but a noble, wise, temperate, honest, God fearing man, in whose heart shall reign aud in wboee face shall be pictured, his kinahip witb tbe Maker and Ruler of the nniveree. After the applauae had died away tbe Lorelei club, in tbe abeeuee of Mrs. Mo dini Wood, again Bang deligbltully, 'and President of tne Day Jonee made some appropriate remarks. Gen. A. Pierce, the orator of the day, waa then introduced, who took for hiß theme Monumental Dave, or in other worda, the innate desire of humanity to preaerve or commemorate by monuments the atory of evente tbat had paeaed. He dwelt on the aucienty of tbe custom, of which the Sanekrit writers, eeveral thouaand years ago, have kept record. The impulse to hoi.l alive tbe atory of humanity by the erection of monuments of atone, iron und other metala is not confined to clime or time. Tbe aand< of Egypt, tbe temples of India, tbe exhumed cities of the new continent, the masonry of China, all these are fingeiboarda on tbe field oi time, pointing eloquently, if silently, to deeda of beroiam which happened centuries ago. Even thus has Nature ita "monumental daya." The track of tbe glacier, the impriaoned shell, tbe coalhed tbat now give back to ua tbe buried (ems of millions of years ago. all these to us are wonderful lessons by which the earth's ancient history stands levealed. By grand monuments also ia the history of the church made plain to ua. And thus also around the monumental days of history are clustered the garlands of eacred and glorious memo.v s, by which humanity recorda tbe illuatiious deeda of toe father to instill into the miudof the eon the lessons taught by those deeda. The speaker then reverted to the heroic atrugglea of the revolution and tbo rebellion, and concluded hia remarks with a reference to Memorial day, which haa been consecrated by the love and revereuce ol sixty million people. ifter more vocal music by tbe Lorelei club, a beuediction by Comrade Kuighten, tbe exercises came to a close with tapa by Bugler Thomas.

Interesting Events by the Los Angeles Athletic Club. Bicycle Races, Running Races and Baseball Yesterday. Summary of Wheal Races at San Diego, Ban Francisco, Chicago and Other Khatern Points—An Excellent Day's Sport. The ninth annual field day of the Los Angeles Athletio club took place at Athletic park yesterday afternoon. The attendance, while not as large as at some previous field days, was made up of a jolly crowd of about 400. The bleachers were well filled, and there was quite a number of ladies in tbe grand stand. The programme had been very wisely shortened over previous field days, and all the events were finished by 5:15 o'clock. There is no reason why a half hoar could not have been saved from this time bad tbe races started at tbe advertised time, 1:30 o'clock ; but it was 2 o'clock when the boys in the opening event came to tbe scratch. The crowd was exceedingly good natured and enjoyed tbe interesting programme very much. Some of the bicycle racea were exciting, and although no recorda were broken, it was one of the most attractive field uaya the club has held. The officers of the day were: Referee, A. 0. Way ; judgse, O. W. Chase, R. W. Pridbam and C. P. Lyndall; timers,,!. D. Wiley, Th. Beesing and W. Cosley; starter. W. F. Kennedy; cleric of oourae, A. D. Comminge; assistant clerks, Ed Cook and George Miller: marehal, S. P. Henelev ; committee of arrangements, R. W. Pndham. A. C. Way, 0- W. Chase, C. P. Lyndall and J. S. Thayer. The drat event waa a hundred yard daab for novices. Tbe entriea were A. Guthrie aud 0. E. Patterson. Guthrie waa an easy winner in 11 3 4 eeconds. The entrieß in the one mile bicycle race, maiden, were: W. A. Taylor, A. Griffin, W. Moas, W. B. Gard and E. L. De Blugeot. There was a false etart, Gard falling in the ten-yard limit. The boys got away at the second attempt, however, and ran a very pretty race, that aroused the enthueiaem of tbe bleachers. They were all bunched together for tbe hrst three laps, but De Blugeot fell out. and iv tbe laat lap Griffin, Taylor and Gard came together down tbe atretch, witb Griffin'a legs working bim gradually to the front, and Moaa way behind. Tbey paaaed tne tiniah pretty cloee together. The men came in, Griffin first, Taylor second and Gard third. A protest waa entered by Gard against Griffin, on the ground that he was not entitled to enter in the maiden class, as be rode in the fiesta racee. But the judgea decided ttiat those racea were not recognized and Griffin would not be barred unless their decision ehould be reversed on appeal. Griffin's time wbb 2:10 flat. C. V. Howard and J. Ryan ran a spirited lUU-yard dash. Howard was the favorite, and justified ttie expectations of his friends by commit iv two feet ahead of Ryan in 10.., seconds There were four entries for the running high jump event, but only W. J. Bliesner aud M. E. Riley appeared Bliesner won the contest, his high jump beinn 5 feet o ! 4 incheß. J. Ryan, O. V. Howard and 0. E. Pat terson contested the 2L'O-yard run, aud Howard was an easy winner in 24 sec onda. Ryan oame in second and I'atleraon waa left well behind. Considerable interest has been felt in the half-mile bicycle race, on account of the presence of E. Ulbricht among the entries. Ttie otherß were W. A, Taylor, H. E. Bundy and W. B. Gard. The race was an exciting one. The men were together tbe first time around, hut on the last turn Bundy dropped h hind. Taylor, Ulbricht and Gard, in the order named, passed over the finish co close together that there was great difference of opinion aa to who wm the winner. There waa a consultation of tbe judges, aud they fiuall decided that Taylor had won and that Ulbricht wae entitled to first place. Taylor'e time was 1 : in. W. J. Blieaner and M. E. Riley were pitted against eaeb other for the running broad jump, and Bliesner made the winning jump of 17 feet 10 inches, although in another try afterwarda he made over 18 feet. Ulbricht played in hard luck again in the one-mile biocle race, 2:40 class. Ttie men who came to the scratch were Bundy, Griffin and Ulbricht. It was an interesting race, aud Griffin tried hard to keep up ttie hot pace set lor him, but tbe mile was too much for bim. He fell behind gradual.v, and Bundy won the race in 2:274, Ulbricht being close up as they went through the tape. J. Ryan, F. L. Morrill, W. F. Brosmer and Howard were contestants in the 410-yard dash, aud it was thought Howard would win, but he could not reach Ryan as the latter finished in 55 seconds, with Morrill tuird and Brosmer wav behind. The most amusing event of the day was the very unusual spectacle of a mile bicycle race by Übinamen. the entries were Wong Wong Gouie, Charlie Wong Foot aud Jauiej Wong. Tbey were intensely interested in tbe race themselves, aud appeared in full bicycle costume. Tliey were greeted with applause, and contributed largely to the interest of the programme. Wong Gouie could neither mount nor dismount from his wheel, but once on he could go like forty. On the tiref lap abound James Wong unfortunately toast a tumble alou-ido the track, an 1 the subsequent proceedings in erected bim no m re. The other three kept up their pace amidst the shouts and cheeis of tbe crowd. On the stretch Wong Ngui spurted and came in au easy winner at a slashing puce, his time being SlUoJf, with Wong Fook second and Gouie last. Taylor, Kundy, Griffin, Washburn, Gard and Ulbnoht were in the one mile bicycle r.ce. It wae ac tine a race ac was ever run ou ttie track in point of interest. The men kept close together strung out like a string of runners for three laps, tjrat Taylor aud then Griffin forging ahead. Bundy went off the track into the weeds aud was foiced to drop out. On the etietch Griffin, with bis slim lojh working like piston rods drew away from the rest, and finished the winner by a neck over Taylor, Ulbricht third, in 2:37. Much interest was aroused in the pole vault. L. Breer, O. P. Giddiugs and E H. Mimmer contested. Mimmer dropped out early in the action, and Giddinge made a gallant struggle, hi nerve and staying powers being warm y applauded. Breer won, bis highest vault being 9 ieet 1 inch. Tbe mile run between Brosmer, How ard aud Patterson was a tame affair. Tbe men ambled around the track until the stretch, when with a Bpurt Patterson came in first. Time, 5:45. The last event was the two mile handicap. The entries were Tayior,7s yards ; Bundy, 125 yards; Washburn, 50 yards; Moss, 125; UlbrigOt, scratched, and De Blngeot, 150 yards. Bundy finished first, with TTlbright second and Griffin third. Time. 5:14, V*. SOME BASEBALL FUN. An Interesting Game Bstwisn tha Ballroad and Postal Itoys.

Tbe railroad boys were lucky In the toss up, sending tbe mail boys to the bat. Gillingbam and Arkells composed the battery of the former nine while Holmes and Shannon for the latter. Yaeger of the Herald umpired the game to the satisfaction of both nines. In tha first inning Richards went ont on h foal, followed by Holmes and Bchumaker who were thrown oat by two intield hits.

In the second inning Miner scored, Tavlor touched ont at first, followed by Marcus. Shannon socured baee on balls svho was caught napping at first. The inning ending disastrously to the postolfice lads The railroaders secured four more run j , when the chances of a few more were cat Bhort by Taylor, who distingn ahed himself by capturing an elegant foul fly, which retired the Bide In the third inning, Ilickam struck the ball for a two-bagger and came in through a passed ball, error of the catcher.
