SYMPATHY WITH THE SOUTH AFRI-
N the suggestion of several Trustees, a
special meeting of the Trustees was
held at the Society's room, September
19, I899, to consider the propriety of'
calling a special meeting of the Society to expre-ssa
sympathy with the South African Republic in its
controversy with Great Britain.
It was unanimously voted to request the Presi-
dent to call such meeting on October 2d, and the-
President with Judges Van Hoesen and Van
Wyck were appointed a Committee to draft resolu-
tions to be presented at the meeting.
The Secretary was requested to make arrange-
ments for the place of meeting.
SPECIAL MEETING OAF THE SOCIETY.
A special meeting of the Holland Society was
held at Delmonico"s, on Monday evening, October
2, 1899, President Tunis G. Bergen in the chair.
About two hundred members had notilied the
Secretary of their intention to be present.

sent the first of the Anglo-Saxons. In the Low
Lands were nurtured the ancient Angles and Sax-
ons who gave strength to England and add greater
power to the United States. , l
Then, as Americans, as Anglo-Saxons, and with
the blood of the old Dutch Republic in our veins,
sons of sires who have fought for the principle
of self-government in Europe and America, we
There is a quarrel between two of our friends.
A great empire is threatening a little republic in
South Africa, nay, threatening two such little re-
publics, with one of whom it never has had a quarrel.
Englishmen and Boers are getting angry. Rifles
are being loaded and swords drawn. I
What should we Americans of this Society do?
Shall we give any expression to our feelings at this
crisis? Should we be silent? '
Without a desire to disturb the good under-
standing between Great Britain and the United
States, but for the sake of that good understanding,
should we not appeal to the better nature of Eng-
land, to the conscience of the British people, to
that love of freedom and self-government which
has formed the brightest pages in English history,
to refrain from this cruel ,and unnecessary war, to
restrain the attempt of some to extinguish the
name of a little republic, even two little republics,
and sweep them from the face of the earth?
Judge George M. Van Hoesen, on behalf of the
Committee appointed by the Trustees, presented
the following resolutions: .
Resolveai That the Holland Society of New York, composed
exclusively of descendants of Dutch burghers resident in the
colony of New Netherland before 1675, sympathizing deeply
with the burhers of the South African Republic in their
struggle for the maintenance of their independence and auton-
omy, earnestly appeal to the Government of the United States
to use its good offices with the Government of Great Britain for
the preservation of peace between England and the T ransvaal,
and for the settlement of the points in dispute between those
two nations in a manner that will save to the South African
Republic the rights guaranteed to it by the convention of 1884.
Resolved That a committee, consisting of the President of
this Society and two members selected by him, be authorized
to present to the President of the United States a copy of the
foregoing resolution and to urge upon him speedy action, that
war may be averted between Great Britain and the South
African Republic, or, if war still occurs, that peace may be
concluded upon terms that the conscience of mankind will not
An animated discussion upon these resolutions
ensued. An all but unanimous expression of
sympathy for the Boers was manifested, but sev-
eral members objected to requesting the Govern-
ment at Washington to, intervene.
Col. William L. Heermance, of Yonkers, spoke,
in substance, as follows :
I favor the objects of this meeting, but when it
asks this Government to interfere with the relations-
of foreign governments, I am opposed to it, If We
interfere there, we make a mistake. I indorse the
sentiments of the resolution,,eXcept Where we ask
our Government to take a part. '
There .we must quit, even in the' face of the
?F?1i1naT1gng and grasping policy of Great Britain.
h I een a younger man, and had not other ties
ere, would have been glad to go to the Transvaal
and lend a helping hand, but where another foreign
plptlginxtvrlyoils concerned, we must quit. Still, I despise
S Pohcy England has pursued, with the
Bible in one hand and the shotgun in the other,
but don't let us miX up in any way.
Mr. Robert B. Roosevelt said:
We all are agreed as to sentiment, but there are
different ways of expressing this sentiment. It is
open to question, and very serious question, too,
whether this Society should appeal to our Govern-
ment. We want to call the attention of the world
to the fact that we sympathize with the Transvaal,
but shall we appeal to Washington, which will take
no action, and which, in my judgment, should take
no action ? I I '
Had any other government interfered with us
in the recent war we would have taken deep offense.
If we interfere abroad, even most delicately, it will
be in an offensive way. Perhaps at the present
moment we are under obligations to England. It
seems to me .that the friendship between us is
of value, and will tend to good. With this friendly
feeling these two nations could police the world.
If we did n't appreciate the friendliness of England
during our late Spanish war we certainly did appre-
ciate the unfriendliness of other nations. I believe
that England, as a conscientious nation, still will
stop. I object to that part of the resolution, " that
thelconscience of mankind will not condemn," as
offensive, and I move to substitute, " on terms hon-
orable to both parties."
Judge Augustus Van Wyck followed :
I am surprised at the timidity of some of our
members, descendants of a race that established lib-
erty in Europe and a model here. Can it be that
a race led by William the Silent has become so de-
generate that it has nothing left but a boast of
into the Transvaal. There was no interference
with the Transvaal until gold was found there.
Those are the richest mines ever discovered, turn-
ing out already SIO0,000,000 a year.
And suddenly England Hndssome of her rights
have been trampled upon, not long after the dis-
covery of this gold. So she ,insists that in the
Dutch Parliament of the Republic members may
speak English, and that British subjects shall have
the right of franchise there without forswearing
their allegianceto England. Don't disembowel
these resolutions of all virility and simply say we
are descendants of Dutch ancestors. 4
There is nothing offensive in this country say-
ing to England, "America is a lover of peace,
except Where War is necessary, and it offers its
kind services as an intermediary if her services are
desired." Oom Paul fa cry of " God bless him l "J
sent jameson and those invaders to England to
be tried, so that there might be no question of
Mr. Warner Van Norden said: '
There is right and Wrong, on both sides. We
sympathize with the Boers, but England has built
up the greatest empire on the face of the earth, and
We owe to her, more than to any other nation, the
splendid progress of our race. We must not forget
that little nations now are being absorbed by the
greater. We have no right under our Society's Con-
stitution to present such resolutions, and I am sur-
prised that a learned judge should overlook that
fact. VVe may as well pass resolutions in favor of
a political party. , T

And you go your daily way to your shops, or stores, or banks,
With the loved ones' benedictions on your head,
Will you kindly think of those who live so far away,

And how your horrid war, whichlreason could not stay,
Is changing all their laughter into moan?

Fifty thousand chosen men-men of might and bold,
Each obeying his country's call, but worthy of better things,
And all to answer to the cry for gold-gold-gold.
There are boys with hearts, and girls who love, in that land

And they, too, have parted for the war,
They weep through sleepless hours of night, and then they

As never have they wept and prayed before.

HE tenth annual dinner of the Poughkeepsie
district members of the Holland Society
' of New York was held, as usual, in com-

1899, at the Nelson House.
The Vice-President for Dutchess County, Hon..
Edward Elsworth, presided, and there were , present

father's wagon to settle in that country. " England has no
right there," said the speaker. " She did annex the Transvaal
in 1877. In 1880 the Boers rebelled against England's domi-
nation. In 1881 England acknowledged the independence of
the Boers. Now gold has been discovered, and England wants
to take possession of the wealth which belongs to this sturdy
people. Because of the fact that the Boers refuse to allow
adventurers to enjoy their citizenship and protection without
becoming citizens, England steps in to enforce that monstrous
Rev. A. P. Van Gieson was called out by Mr. Elsworth to
speak on the South African trouble, and the eloquent clergy-
man made one of his most interesting addresses, glowing with
admiration for the seekers for liberty everywhere, and iilled
with words of praise for the race and the land at the board
Rev. A. P. Van Gieson said : When a bold, bad man sets
out to do a bold, bad thing, in a bold, bad way, by force, I have
a respect for him. But when a bad man sets out to do what he
knows to be a bad thing, and does it under the guise of virtue,
I have no respect for him. I have a good respect for England,
and for its colonial government, but for England's treatment
of the Transvaal I have the utmost contempt."
Dr. Van Gieson read an extract from a speech by the Duke
of Devonshire on the subject, which he characterized as great
hypocrisy, amid the approval of the gentlemen about him.
The speaker told how the Boers, in their search for a place to
settle and be free, went until they thought they were forever
beyond the reach of England. It was not a good country to
live in, not a promising country for prosperity. Dr. Van Gie-
son called English action unwarranted and unwarrantable. I-Ie
expressed sincere hope that the Dutch Republic would be
spared. I-Ie hoped the Boers would not strike the first blow 5
but there never was a nation on the face of the earth which
practiced tyranny that did not suffer for it. " I do not know
how the suifering will come. N o English subject has suffered
in the Transvaal in the least. The whole thing is on the part
of England a case of unmitigated grab. I can see but one
outcome of the war. In- the Transvaal are IO0,000 people, or
thereabouts, and against them is the whole British empire. It
must be the swift triumph of England. I hope the war may
yet be averted."
condemnation of the newspapers, especially the New York
newspapers. He made a telling speech, setting forth England's
hypocrisy, saying: "Just asrsoon as gold was discovered in
Venezuela, England raised a row about the boundary line.
just as soon asgold was discovered in Alaska, she raised a
row about the boundary line, which is still on. Now she over-
leaps boundary lines in the T ransvaal, where gold has been
found, and wants to take the whole thing." Mr. Hasbrouck
was applauded when he 'expressed the hope that the Boers
would whip the English, as they had done in ISSO.

secret, though printed on our menu card. In the
latest vernacular, it means that the smallest Dutch
word will sprout and make a boom. Now boom
is Dutch, and you can never start a boom unless
you start the Dutch. Think of the Dutch booms
which have been started in modern times: booms
in declarations of independence, booms in re-
ligious freedom, booms in colonizing, booms in
industry and prosperity, and booms in liberty every-
where. No wonder the old Connecticut Yankee,
about two hundred years ago, founded a proverb
by exclaiming whenever he came upon anything
which excited his admiring surprise: "Why, it
beats the Dutch!" For it is hard to beat' the
Dutch. One of the greatest empires of the world
discovered the truth of that proverb some time ago.

from the old Dutch words, and make use of those
words which we have borrowed from the Latin

ing degenerate,- improperly, I think,-I would be
indulging in what is termed in the newspaper vo-
cabulary, " post-prandial oratory," which, of course,
as your presiding officer, I should not be guilty of.
It would be doing violence to the object of a'
Dutch dinner. But there are places, ,of course,
where that kind of oratory is always on tap.

The intellectual-looking curator finally referred me
to a dusty upper shelf, where he said there might
be a lot of old Dutch trash. Sure enough, there
was a little mine there. So I told the learned curator
that he was quite right. There was n't an English

Of course, on this occasion I do not wish to claim
the earth for the Dutch. Your fathers, you know,
never did have much of the earth given to them, to
start with. They were obliged to dig a hole in
the ocean and then build a dike around it before
they could go ashore to their own country.
Still, wherever the Dutch do touch the earth they
like to stay. There they generally do stay until
they choose to move. You may coax them, and
they will hustle. But if you try to drivethem, you
can't get a move on them.

ADDRESS OF JUDGE GILDERSLEEVE.
- " N1EUw AMSTERDAM THE BUDg
NEW YORK THE FULL-BLOWN FLOWER.
And if on daily scandals fed,
We seem at times to doubt thy worth,
We know thee still, when all is said,
The best and dearest spot. on earth.
Mr. President and Gentlemen : -
HERE is New York? It will be con-
ceded that this is a proper inquiry at
the outset of a response to the toast
that has been assigned to me. Some
years ago, a well-known New York gentleman, trav-
elling in Egypt, wished to communicate with his
Wall Street office by telegram. He wrote out his
message and passed it in to the clerk, Who, upon
reading it, much surprised my friend by asking,
"Where is New York?" The shocked banker
pulled himself together, and the best reply he
could make was, " It is opposite 'jersey City." ,It
is not my purpose to introduce you to-night to
New York, by way of Jersey City, and Spend the
evening around the Battery. I ask your kind
indulgence for a few moments, that I may state
some facts and reasons that warrant an honest
New Yorker in feeling proud at being able to say,
"I am a resident of the Metropolis of the New
-World." The course of its early history is found
in the political history of the Province. In 1743 it
was practically the capital of the Province. Here
the principles of social, political, and religious
liberty were nourished, and have ever found ear-
nest and capable advocates. Universal liberty was
recognized as a principle incident to national
prosperity, and the Empire State, adhering to this
sentiment, was among the first to grant freedom
to the slaves. Love of liberty and the desire of
freedom from foreign dominion, on the night of
july 9, 1776, caused the residents of New York
to hurl from its pedestal in Bowling Green the
equestrian statue of George III., and mould his
leaden majesty into patriotic bullets. Its people
have never been wantingin love of liberty and
loyalty to their country. They have been among
the first to offer their services to the Government
in time of war, and many a bloody battle-field at-
tests their valor. No troops in the Civil War
made a better record at the front than the Excel-
sior Brigade. The New York soldiers were in the
hottest of the fighting at Bull Run, Antietam,
Malvern Hill, Gettysburg, and other battles, and
in the last struggle at Appomattox, which was
more ceremony than conflict, the New York sol-
diers took a conspicuous part. 4
It is indeed a fit place for our living heroes to
come to receive the grateful homage of our com-
mon country., It is also most appropriate that the
mortal remains of our most distinguished men
should here find their final abode. With the unani-
mous approval of the American PCOPIQ the ff'
mains of Ulysses S. Grant rest in Manhattan soil,
upon the banks of the noble Hudson. Its con-
stantly moving waters carry to every land the story
of his glorious achievements in both war and peace.
He was the greatest soldier of our day, and every
true New Yorker, not only to-day, but for ages to
come, will point with pride and devout affection to
Morningside Heights and the tomb there that
marks his grave. Other objects of interest are en-
throned upon these Heights, and deserve especial
mention. Columbia University is there, to furnish
learning for those seeking. mental 'developmentg
St.'Luke's Hospital provides relief for those who
are the victims of physical ailments g and St. john's
Cathedral willbe an. everlasting monument to re-
ligion, and one of the grandest temples ever dedi-
cated to Deity. To those who survive all, and
seek for true happiness in domestic bliss, Barnard
College can furnish wives who will insure a happy
life. And as a last resort, if the worst 'comes to
the worst, -for the poor devil who can find nothing
good in this world, the river is near at hand.
'It was in this City, on March 4, 1789, the United
States Government was formally launched upon
the world. On that day, George Washington,
first President of -the United States, took the oath
of office where now stands the Sub-Treasury Build-
1ng in Wall Street.
New York enjoys the honor of.having furnished
the first Chief justice of the United States. john
Jay, of New York, served as Chief justice from
1739 to I7Q5- D3:H1Cl Webster, in speaking of
John l3Y1 SHIC1, " His character is a brilliant jewel
in the sacred treasury of national reputation.
When the spotless ermine of the judicial robe
fell on john jay, it touched nothing less spotless
New York City, from time to time, has recog-
nized the service of loyal Americans to their country
by the erection to their memory of monuments that
may be found upon every hand, as we walk through
the thoroughfares of our beloved Metropolis. The
equestrian statue of Washington at Union Square
is among the first to attract attention, and upon
the same site, presenting arms to the Father of our
Country, we see the bronze statue of the Marquis
de Lafayette, who left home and luxury to share
the fate of our Revolutionary Fathers, and ren-
dered to America an inestimable service. Alexan-
der Hamilton, the Hrst Secretary of the National
Treasury, has his statue on the East Drive in Cen-
tral Park. In recognition of the sciences, we find
Morse, who contributed to the world's progress
by the telegraph. In honor of a statesman, we
see Seward at Madison Square and Twenty-third
Street, who, by reason of his devotion to' his coun-
try, barely escaped martyrdom, in company with
the man who, among great Americans, is sec-
ond only to Washington, - the immortal, Lin-
coln. We see, also, in Madison Square, our own
digniiedand capable Arthur, President- of the
United States, and, near by, to remind us of the
valuable acquisition the War with Mexico yielded,
stands the beautiful monument to General Worth.
Hard by, we see the bronze statue of the gallant
Farragut, who fought his war-vessels from the
shrouds of his Hagship, that he might better direct
their movements. The literature produced in New

The stimulant to civic pride does not end with
tangible objects. Most of us can recall, and when
we are gone the records of events will tell, how the
grand pageants have moved through our streets
with banners flying and bands playing, and over
and above the noise of all have been heard the
joyful huzzahs of the people in recognition and
celebration of some great work accomplished, by
which mankind must benefit g or in grateful ac-
knowledgment of the services to their country of
patriots upon land and sea. Time will not permit
me to name even the great events. This general
reference must bring to the- minds of most of you
grand occasions you will never forget, and as often
as you recall them your bosoms will swell with
pride, and you will rejoice over your habitation.
I should deserve severe censure, if I allowed this
occasion to pass without congratulating the Rapid
Transit Commissioners and their able ally, the
Corporation Counsel, upon reaching the point in
their labors where they are able to award to Mr.
john B. McDonald the contract to build the Tun-
nel Road. The Commissioners have pursued their
Work with an industry, ability,,and fixgdnesg of
purpose that deserve the highest commendation.
Judglng from the increase in valuations and the
general prosperity that the Elevated Road brought
to the city, we may safely prophesy that the
-X K ' V x
completion of the Tunnel Road will open up a new
era of prosperity in our history. I am sure the
best wishes of all our people will be with Mr.
McDonald, his associates, and subordinates, in car-
rying on the work, and we confidently trust that at
an early day he will bring to a successful comple-
tion this great public improvement.
I am permitted to name but a few of the advan-
tages, objects, incidents, and sentiments that appeal
to the pride of loyal New Yorkers. Thousands
must be left unmentioned. Bearing these things
in mind, should not the citizen of our municipality,
living under laws that hehas had a voice in mak-
ing, when he thinks something has gone wrong,
confidently file his complaint with the proper tri-
bunal, and seek, without misgivings, those reme-
dies the Constitution and laws are ample to give?
When, Mr. President and gentleman, has ra
charge of corruption 'or an accusation of crime
been made, supported by competent evidence,
where the guilty went unwhipped of justice? The
Grand juries, before entering upon their duties,
solemnly swear " to present no person from envy,
hatred, or malice, nor to leave any one unpresented
through fear, favor, affection, or reward, or hope
thereof, but to present all things truly, according
to the best of their understanding." What does
this imply? 'Honest thought and honest action,
-the beacon-lights that guide men to prosperity
and happiness, and municipalities to wealth, power,
and glory. It is with these principles before them
that our courts undertake the responsible duties
of administering the civil and criminal laws. I-Iow
well they have succeeded,.let others tell, who are
best calculated to judge. At a recent gathering of

at their blue coats and gray trousers, " I am a Union
man." Whereupon they said, " You are, are you?
We want everything you have 5 we are Confeder-
ates." Soon afterwards he met a party who wore
gray coats and blue trousers, and they asked him
what side he was on. I-Ie thought he would strike it
right this time, and replied that he was a Confed-
erate, whereupon they, being Union scouts, looted
him. The third time he encountered a party,
"What side areyou on P" said they. Looking at
them for a long time, he at last exclaimed : " Come
now, boys, stop your foolishness, what side are
you on ? "
Looking over the lists of guests I made some
suggestions to the Judge and told him I thought I
saw the name of a gentleman who would talk for
the Boers, -pointing out the name of Hogeboom.
'Then he asked, " Who will talk for the English ?"
I said, " Unless we hear some more encouraging
news from Buller to-night, lVIr.- Onderdonk will do
very well." Pardon this strained allusion to the

Huence of Dutch Civilization. In doing so I must
steer clear of the present situation as much as
possible. I have seen the little fellow' tackle the
big one before,'and know only too well the result. 'I
feel that in this gallant fight, now going -on, the
ultimate result must be like that which befell the
Indian who lassoed' the locomotive out West.
When the engineer saw him wheeled through 'space
at the rate of forty miles an hour fast to his own
lasso, he rested his head upon his hand, and watching
from the window said, " Indian, I admire your
pluck, but d-- your judgment!" You know,

my friends, I gm an ex-Confederate and know
how it is myself l
So much for frivolityg an
serious thought. We are all Proud O .
of the Dutch. I have a streak of Dutch in me
myself, and I am very proud of it. My Dutch H11-
Cestof, Cornelis Melyn, received the first patent for
Staten Island, and went there and stayed two days,
when the Indians drove him off, and he never
returned. The better part of valor is discretion, a
feature always prominent in the Dutch character.
At your annual dinner you hear described from
year touyear the important part which the Dutch
have played in the civilization of this nation. For
three hundred years their inHuence has been so
marked everywhere, and especially in-our great
nation, that one who studies Dutch character and
history never ceases to wonder at the powerful and
great and widespread influence of this little nation.
I shall delay you but a moment to remind you that
we are indebted to the Dutch more than to any
other nation for religious liberty, for freedom of
conscience, the liberty of the press-which unfor-
tunately is too often the license of the press-and
many others of our most cherished institutions.
Yet I know nothing which illustrates better the
diversity of the Dutch genius than her history as
the possessor and governor of colonies and her
sagacious management of her dependencies. With-
in a briefyear, in a moment, almost the twinkling
of an eye, the whole policy of our nation has been
revolutionized concerning colonial possessions in
a manner totally unforeseen. For a hundred years
we boasted of our isolation, and our utter lack of
complication with, or interest in, European policies.
d now a moment for
f the record
We believed our true destiny was to avoid en-
tanglements with the affairs of other nations. Al-
though for hundreds of years England and Spain
and 'Portugal and Holland and France, and lately
Germany, had been gaining in colonial possessions,
we had none, and boasted that we wanted nothing.
Yet we have leaped right into the midst of the
possession of, and responsibility for, colonial de-
pendencies in a way that must, in the nature of
the case, revolutionize our whole conduct and
change our national course in the future. I am
not one of those who are alarmed at this. Our
nation has done so many surprising things, and
done them so surprisinglywell, that I have faith
in the power of Americans to do yet another thing
But this is what has happened to us: At the
opening of theyear 1898 England led, and'Spain
closely followed her, as the largest owner and
governor -of colonial possessions. This year Eng-
land still leads, but Spain has dropped out of the
list of governments with important colonial pos-
sessions, and the- United States has moved up to
second place among the nations.
lNow, shall we perform our self-assumed task
well or badly? "Wel1?" Of course we will. If
we do not lose our head' and think we know it all
at once, we will gain union and glory and wealth
by the change, I feel well assured. You have all
known instances of people getting into new enter-
prises and thinking that they know all about 'them
until they find out the contrary, and coming out of
them very much crestfallen. Some years ago, When,
at the end of the civil strife, the South was reduced
to the condition of unreconstructed territories, the
contempt for actual conditions and for the knowl-
edge of the natives, humble though they be.
We have placed upon us now the responsibili-
ties of these colonies. It behooves us not only to
acquaint ourselves with the characteristics and
capabilities of their people, but to study the
methods employed by other nations who have suc-
ceeded in dealing with their colonial possessions.
Before we advance onestep further we must as-
sure ourselves that we make no mistake in the way
in which we organize our new possessions. If we
look at what other nations have done we shall see
much to guide us. For example, while England
has in many respects been very successful in deal-
ing with her colonies, she has attempted in many
places to make Englishmen of them and failed.
She has learned that she 'cannot put brown spats
on the barefooted savages, or make them wear.
monocles and carry heavy walking-sticks like
London cads. We have the benefit of her fail-
ures when she tried fantastic notions about ele-
vating savages and teaching them her religion, or
making them adopt her method of life. We have
the benefit of Spain's experience, and have seen
her by tyranny and lack of sympathy and a grasp-
ing policy lose all her colonies. When we turn to
Holland, we see that in the government of the
islands of java and Celebesshe has given us an
example of wise, conservative government, under
which her colonies have grown from five to twenty-
Eve millions of people in seventy years. How has
she accomplished it? Simply by the CXC1'CiSC of
sound common sense, and from the fact that the
Dutch have never thought that they knew more
than they did or could accomplish miracles. They

and brain of every patriotic citizen who desires to
see the Republic grow in power and in glory, It
must be dealt with in such manner that we shall
steer clear between the extremes of paternal des-
potism and sentimental legislation, which shall in-
ject into the body politic a dangerous franchise,
which will prove a menace to our own freedom
and the intelligent purity. of our own institutions.
We do not .owe it to ourselves, or to them, or to
civilization that we shall go there proclaiming the
dogma, which we do not believe ourselves, that all
men are born free and equal. They are not!
Men' are born just as horses and mules and don-
keys and dogs are born. Some are of one kind
and some of another. An old darkey was once
asked to dehne the difference between a mule and
a jackass. He promptly replied: "A jackass is
exactly like a mule, only a mule is a little more so 1"
just so, an intelligent Christian American cit-izen
may be just like a Cuban, Puerto Rican, a Sand-
wich Islander, or a Filipino, but I, for one at least,
,believe the American is a little more so! I
We must realize that, for the present at least,
we have had enough of Fourteenth Amendments !
We want to get a good, strong-minded American
administration, which will take these intellectual
babies, whose cradles we must rock, and put them
to school when they are large enough, and birch
them if they do not study their books, and keep
them in healthy and kindly tutelage until they are
ready to graduate. Then it will be time enough
to consider their status and their rights to citizen-
ship, absolute or qualified. To deal with them
otherwise now, would be midsummer madness.

In the presence of such contestants one cannot
but think that the great poem recently dedicated
to England by her ,greatest living poet describes
as well, in its every sentiment, the faith of Holland
as the faith of Great Britain herself, and every man

" THE TRUE AMERICANQH y I
Confident of the greatness of his own country, he does not
build his hopes of her future upon expectations of the patron-
age of any foreign power.
Mr. Ckazkfmam, Ladzks, cmd Genilemewz .-
D HE other day a man Walked into my office
and said : " We are going to have a meet-
ing in sympathy with the Boers, and we
want to use your name as a Vice-Presi-
dent." I ansvvered instantly, " Use it I " Then I
looked at him and said, " But you are an Irish-
man." " Oh, yes," he replied, " most of asin this
movement are Irish." "But why notlleave it to
the Dutch in America to hold the meeting?" I
inquired. "Sure," said he, "if We left it to the
Dutch, the War would be over before the meeting
was held, and then we would n't have a list in the
iight I " Gentlemen, if the Holland Society has any
doubt about which end of the British lion to tackle,
there are other citizens in this community who
will gladly relieve them of the responsibility.
I am accustomed, gentlemen, to say what I

'th an body if he differs with me. I-Ie has as
W1 Y . .
much right to his opinion as I have to mine, and it
is an equal chance that he is right and I am Wrongg
but I have my conviction and I must stand by it.
So if in drawing a picture of what I think IS the
True American, I may run counter to your opinion,
no offence. If I did not say what I mean
I should make no speech at all. -
If you had left it to me to choose my toast to-
night, I could not have picked one to suit me better,
for there is nothing which appeals to me so much
as the True American. Let me drink to him ! Let
me drink in Warm, red Wine,- the symbol of the
blood that is driven by his brave heart through-his
vigorous arteries. Not blue blood, but red blood-
the red blood of the aggregate people of America
-blood that tingles with patriotism, blood that
burns with love of liberty g blood thatseethes with
hatred of oppression. It is the blood of no one peo-
ple of the old world. Not Dutch, nor English, nor
Scotch, nor Irish, nor German, nor Italian,-but the
mixture of the best blood of all the ,nations of the
earth, for it is the blood of the liberty-loving,
freedom-seeking people of all the earth. It is the
cream of the nations. It is this blood, drawn from
all the sources of freedom in the World, that has
produced the True American, and in producing
'him has built up the greatest republic 'the World
has ever seen.
The' True American stands to-day the young
Ffolossus of civilization. The nations are watch-
mg to see yvhat he will do. Oppression and
tyranny tremble in his presence, and freedom and
liberty come to him as a friend and a champion.
I-Ie is broad and liberal in all his views. He is
firm in his convictions and is courageous in his
opinions, but he does not assume that other men
have not the right to differ with him. He is
keenly alert to the interests of his own country,
and he is sympathetic with other countries that are
struggling to attain the greatness of his own along
lines that led to that greatness. His birth, his
breeding, and his education make him a democrat
in principle and a republican in government. He
does not envy a richer man and he does not scorn
a poorer one. He believes in a condition of affairs
that shall leave the Held wide open for individual
endeavor, so that the best man may win without
fear or favor. It has always been his proudest
boast that the poorest boy in the land may grow
into the greatest mang that the humblest child
may some day sit in the nation's presidential
chair. He looks askance at any proposition or any
tendency of the times that shall make it impossible
for this condition to continue.
As between republican and monarchical forms
of government, the True American is always repub-
lican on general principles. He remembers -the
history of his country, and in any conflict between
a monarchy and a republic he is for the republic.
As between a superior monarchical forceinvading
a country, and an inferior republican force defend-
ing it, he is for the defenders. As between a
battalion crossing the seas and marching in solid
phalanx, and an individual shooting from his Hre-
side to protect his home, he is for the individual.
If ever he is otherwise there must be some abnor-
mal cause for his position.
The True American is generous. He is charita-
ble. We hear much of late about " hands across the
, 5 1
the western world and looking towards the East.
All his being is stirred with interest to see what
shall come of that attitude. Is a step to be taken,
and if so, how far and in what manner? No True
American can advocate or approve the acquisition
of territory for the sake of greed. His whole
nature revolts at that proposition. His own
country is founded on the principle that so far as
opportunity is concerned, men are born free and
equal, and he is not yet prepared to believe that
government by the consent of the governed is only
a beautiful dream. .But this he has within him
above everything -'confidence in the American
people to meet any problem of government that
may confront it 5 not only to meet it but to solve it
to the satisfaction of the civilized world.
He does not fear the phantom of imperialism,
because he feels that the American Republic can
never be changed into an empire. He knows that
he would surrender his own life to prevent such a
change, and he believes that his brothers would
make like sacrifice. The United States will never
fall into the error of those republics that have
come to destruction through seeking territory by
conquest. The doctrine of the universal brotherf
hood of .man has progressed .too afar, and the True
American is too much a part of it, to admit of the
possibility of the American Republic being any-
thing else than the home of the brave and the land
of the free. It has lent its helping hand to Cuba,
and sometime, under its beneficence, Cuba will be-
come allied to, if not a part of, the United' States.
lt has lent its helping hand to Hawaii, and already
Hawaii is praying for full sisterhood among the
States. It has assumed the responsibility for the
the theory of universal brotherhood and the capa-
city of all peoples to govern themselves. Inspired
by the bravery of Washington, the wisdom of
Jefferson, and the martyrdom of Lincoln, he fore-
sees the time when monarchical government must
disappear from the face of the earth, and all forms
of serfdom and slavery must be wiped out. As
love is the ultimate power to bind the world to-
gether in brotherhood, so the justice of full popu-
lar representation in government must be the
ultimate outcome of the efforts of all the inhabit-
ants of the World to preserve law and order and to
mete out justice to every human being. Not more
potent with me is the admonition,-"Love the
Lord thy God with all thy heart and soul, and love
thy neighbor as thyself,"- not more potent is this
admonition than the utterance which fell from the
inspired lips of Abraham Lincoln on the battle-
Held of Gettysburg, an utterance applied by him to
the United States of America, but in the ages to
come to be applied to all the nations: " Govern-
ment of the people, by the people, and for the
people shall not perish from the earth."
H Gentlemen, in the face of that prophecy and in
the memory of the man who made it, the phantom
of imperialism must disappear from the American
mind. I i -

51,000 had also been received from the will of
Mrs. Sarah A. Van Nostrand, whose late husband
had been one of our early Trustees, and who had
shown her interest in our Society by an annual
contribution to our treasury. We' have invested

In October last, during the controversy between
the governments of the British. Empire and the
Transvaal, a meeting of the Society was held, at
which resolutions were adopted-expressing sympa-
thy with the Republic, and invoking the good-
oflices of our own Government'to preserve the
independence of the Boers.
This we believe was the Hrst of the meetings
held in the United States 'to give expression to'
the sympathies of the- citizens of the great Repub-
lic of the West for the brave little people of South

To be summoned from these rustic occupations
to run for the presidency of the Holland Society
was a severeshock to a man of retiring disposition,
--all the more so because that disposition to retire-

to deserve it. In my own case, nothing was noto-
rious except my disqualilications. I leaned for a
long time upon the handle of my hoe, reflecting
upon the dilemma. The placid fthough still invis-
iblej garden vegetables, the calm cows, and the
chuckling chickens seemed to counsel me to remain
in Well-earned obscurity.
But the commands of Judge Van I-Ioesen, Gen-
eral Bergen, Secretary Banta, and other honored
dignitaries were imperative.
Finally the habit of obedience conquered, and I
consented to " run," in so far as that Word of rapid
motion can ever be applied to the actions of a

With your Dutch good nature, I trust you will
overlook the keen embarrassment I feel at this mo-
ment in not being able to hand to my successor,
Dr. Henry Van Dyke, in person, the symbols of
this high office. Reams of papers filled with bursts
of rhetorical admiration evoked by. his presence,
must now be consigned to oblivion. With sadness
I now send to the paper mills to be made into pulp

It is clear that Dr. Van Dyke, as our candidate
for president, has 'run so well that he has run
away. With his natural hesitation to speak in
public, and the rhetorical humility of those men
who make professional utterances from the pulpit,
he has sent us a letter, the letter which has been
read. I-Ie states that he is obliged to deliver a lec-
ture this evening in some unknown part of Penn-
sylvania. It is evident that he did not dare to
deliver that lecture to us.' I have no doubt it is a
lecture on the subject of building railroad bridges,
or about new methods of applying electricity in the
development of mechanical power. At least, I think
that is what poets often do when called upon to
deliver an address. We are sorry that the author of
" Little Rivers " is not with us to-night. We might'
duck him in one of those little rivers in honor of
the occasion. I certainly have seen him partially
under water in one of those little rivers, when in a
burst of poetic license, he cried that he had hooked
a trout. These poets catch a good many trout-

On the motion of Judge Augustus Van Wyck
the following resolution was unanimously adopted :

of New York are hereby expressed to the Honorable Tunis G.

'ROBERT GOELET, who was elected a member of
the Society, April 6, 1886, was born at his father's
house, 5 State Street, in this city, on September
29, 1841, and died, April 27, 1899,.on board his
yacht Jlfayjfawer, while she was at anchor off
Cowes, England. I-le was named for his father,
who was a brother and partner of Peter Goelet.
His mother was a daughter of jonathan Ggden, of
the old family of that name. Peter and the elder
Robert Goelet throughout their lives continued the
policy of their father in investing in New York
real estate, and at the time the subject of this
sketch attained his majority his familyowned one
of the largest and most valuable estates in New
York. His father and uncle were largely instru-
mental in founding the Chemical'Bank.
lnheriting an inclination and rare capacity for
business, Robert Goelet devoted a large part of his
time and his energies to the care and development
of the extensive property interests left to him
and his younger brother Ogden by his father and
uncle. Ogden Goelet died abroad about two years
ago. Robert studied under private tutors in his
youth and was graduated from 'Columbia College
movements for the promotion of the common wel-
fare. Although unostentatious in his methods, it
was his aim to aid in every worthy effort to im-
prove the condition of the community in which he
lived. He was liberal in contributing in a quiet
way to projects of a semi-public character both here
and in Newport.
Mr. Goelet was very fond of music, and he did
much to promote its study and to increase the pub-
lic facilities' for hearing it. He was one of the
original stockholders of the Metropolitan Opera
House, and one of the most earnest advocates of
the rebuilding of that structure after it had been
destroyed by Ere. Mr. Goelet was also one of the
founders of the Metropolitan Club in this city, and
was one of the financial pillars of that institution.
When in New York he wasp in the habit of spend-
ing much of his time there. He was likewise a lib-
eral patron of the club at Newport and of the
Casino at Tuxedo. Any project or suggestion for
the beautifying or betterment of those institutions
elicited prompt co-operation on his part.
In a conservative way Robert Goelet was fond
of sports. He knew and appreciated a good trot-
ting horse, and derived much pleasure from holding
the ribbons over some speedy animals. He was
an enthusiastic yachtsman, and took a healthful in-
terest in the various out-of-door sports which from
time to time engage the attention of fashionable
society. His steam yacht Nahma, which was with
him abroad, is one of the Hnest vessels of the kind
Persons who knew Robert Goelet best esteemed
him most highly. He was not a man to make ac-
quaintances promiscuously, yet there was no trace
of arrogance or selfish exclusiveness in his disposi-
tion. He weighed his friendships carefully, but
when once a person gained his confidence, that
person found in Mr. Goelet a friend of steadfast
loyalty. ' --
Mr. Goelet was a member of a large number of
clubs, and he- apparently derived much .pleasure
from his club associations. Amongnhis intimates
he was enial, and when in good spirits he was a
very entertaining man. HC WELS 21 member Of the

South Side Sportsmen's, Manuscript, Tandem,
Philadelphia, Metropolitan of Washington, Royal

An earnest-minded man of business, Mr. Goelet
was a director in some of the most important finan-
cial institutions in this city, including the Chemical
Bank, the Union Trust Company, the New York
Life Insurance and Trust Company, the Guaranty
Trust Company, andthe Bank of New Amsterdam.
SEYMOUR VAN NOSTRAND, who was United States
Vice Consul in Saxony for many years, died in the
Clark Hotel, in Elizabeth,'N.i J., late on Sunday
night, july 16, 1899, from a complication of dis-
eases. He was- fifty-nine years old and a bachelor.
One brother survives him. , J
Mr. Van Nostrand was the son of james Van
Nostrand, thepresident in the war days of the old
Merchants' Exchange Bank, in this city. He was
a graduate of Columbia College. He also studied
abroad. He was a member of the' St. Nicholas
Club and of the St. Nicholas Society of this city,
and of the Anglo-American Club in Dresden. He
was once vestry clerk. in the American Church in
Dresden. Mr. Van Nostrand was well known in
literary and club circles. He retired wealthy sev-
eral years ago, and had lived in Elizabeth for
twenty years. He became a member of the Soci-
ety, March 30, 1897.
DR. CHARLES DE LA MoNTANv1-3, son of Franklin
de la Montanye and Blandina Ten Eyck, was born
at Marbletown, N. Y., january 14, 1866, and died
after a brief illness at Port Ewen, N. Y., July 23,
when a mere boy it was his ambition to become
a physician, and he followed this with a persistence
and perseverance which nothing could daunt until,
entirely unaided, he reached the goal for which he
Dr. de la Montanye graduated from the Albany
Medical College in the Class of 1890, and was the
Orator of the Class at the graduating exercises.
Almost immediately afterward he found a favorable
opening at Port Ewen, N. Y., where he gained the
conhdence and respect of his fellow townsmen and
speedily established a good practice. '
He was at one time President of the Ulster
County Medical Society, and so highly was he
esteemed by his brother practitioners in that So-
ciety that they subsequently, elected him to repre-
sent them at the New York State Medical Society,
to serve for three years. He lived to attend but
one meeting of the State Society, that of February
1, 1899, on which occasion he read a paper en-
titled " Medical Education, its Relations to Classi-
cal Literature," which was published in the Albany
.Mbdzkal Annals of July, 1899.
His death was hastened by his devotion to
duty. - His closest friends, who thought they
saw signs of weakness caused by overwork, urged
him to relinquish, his practice for a time, and go
away for a change of air and rest. With indomit-
able pluck he remained at his post until a sudden
cold developed fatalresults, and his promising career
was broughtto an untimely close. A
Dr. de la Montanye was descended on themater-
nal side from the best and oldest Dutch fam1l1es
of Ulster County. Amongthose from whom he
could trace descent were the Ten Eyck, Keator,
jersey Assembly, and in 1874 and 1875 was a mem-
ber of the Jersey City Board of Finance. Mr, Van
Reipen was a director in the Hudson County Na-
tional Bank for a number of years. He became
also a member of the American Institute, a mem-
ber of the Holland Society, December 7, 1888,
and was Vice-President thereof in 1894, a member
of the County Board for Equalization of Taxes,
and Hlled that position ever since its organization.
He filled almost every position of trust and honor
in the locality, and commanded the universal re-
spect of the entire community. ,
On November 25, 1845, he married Miss Caro-
line Westervelt, of Hackensack, N. He resided
at the old home of his boyhood days, 553 Summit
Avenue, jersey City.
He was a member of the old Bergen Reformed
Church, and a deacon and an elder in that congre-
gation for a number of years.
He died August 1, 1899. '
DR. TEUNIS SCHENCK was born in the town of
Flatbush, Kings Co., N. Y., March Io, 1841.
He received his early education at Erasmus Hall
Academy, Flatbush, and later graduated at Union
College, Schenectady, N. Y., Class of 1859, and
also at the College of Physicians and Surgeons,
New York, Class of 1865. Three years after' gra-
duation from Union College he began the study
of medicine with Dr. Thomas Turner, and later
with Dr. R. Cresson Stiles, during these years hav-
ing the advantages of the clinical study afforded
by the wards of the Kings-County Hospital and
in the course of Microscopy given by Dr. Stiles.
In September, 1865, he was appointed Resident
Physician of the Kings County Hospital, and so
continued until 1872, when he resigned in order to
begin the private practice of his profession in the
town of New Utrecht, N. Y., now in the Borough
of Brooklyn, New York City, where he resided at
Previous to the funeral, the members of the city
and county bar held a meeting in the City Hall,
It was largely attended. It was called to order by
Hon. Amasa Parker. Justice Rufus W. Peckham
was made chairman. A committee was appointed
to draft suitable resolutions on the death of Mr. Lan-
sing. Chairman Peckham spoke feelingly of Mr,
Lansing. He had known him for many years, and
he spoke of the friendship existing between them,
Hon. Hamilton Harris also spoke of his regard
for the deceased. He esteemed him not only as a
lawyer, but as a personal friend. He was a suc-
cessful practitioner in the courts for more than
forty years, and was affable andkindly always. He
was a native of Albany, having an ancestry which
had been identified with the city for years and
years. Mr. Harris spoke of the worth of Mr. Lan-
sing as a man, as a lawyer, as a citizen, and as a
resident of Albany.
Hon. Simon W. Rosendale paid his tribute to
Mr. Lansing's memory. It was a delight for a law-
yer to meet la man of the type which Mr. Lansing
represented. He was a conscientious lawyer. As
an official he had the loftiest ideals of duty. He
reminded one strongly ofthe courtliness, dignity,
and politeness of days gone by.
Judge Countryman spokeof the splendid record
which Mr. Lansing had made in the Supreme Court
as a reporter.
Mr. Amasa Parker said:
"MR, CHAIRMAN,--In adding my testimonial on this occasion,
I would preface my remarks by saying that it was my great
privilege to know Abraham Lansing from my early youth, and
intimately. Later on, when I attained my majority and was
admitted to the bar, Mr. Lansing was well established in his
profession and had already acquired a high reputation. Por
upwards of forty years Mr. Lansing was a quiet, thorough, d1l1-
gent, and successful practitioner. He was equally able before
a jury at 1zz'sz'p1'z'zzs as in the Appellate courts of this State.
He was most painstaking in collecting and arraymg his facts.,
his briefs showed a thorough knowledge of the law, and his

curred. A mob -broke into his employer's place,
and he carried the Hrm's books to his father's office
in Nassau Street.
Mr. De Witt subsequently became a member of
the Stock Exchange, and gave up his membership
in 1848 to start out for California. He embarked
in a brig, accompanied by a business friend named
Harrison, and sailed around Cape Horn with a
cargo of merchandise, reaching San Francisco in
ISO days. Mr. De VVitt was in San Francisco at
the time of the gold discoveries in 1849. He
founded the firm of De Witt 81 Harrison, com-
mission merchants, and for three years carried on a
most prosperous business. Mr. De Witt returned
to New York in 1852, and opened a branch office
of the firm. The firm afterward became De Witt,
Kittle SL Co., and on the retirement of Mr. De
Witt, in 1870, the firm was changed to Kittle 85
Co. Mr. De Witt is said to have taken every route
possible to California in his numerous trips, except-
ing the pony express and Ben Holladay's stage-
coach route. He became a member of the Holland
Society, Nov. 17, 1885.
GEORGE PLATT VAN VLIET, of Salt Point, N. Y.,
united with this Society, June 8, 1899, and died at
Morristown Memorial Hospital, Morristown, N. J.,
Gctober 29, 1899. He was born in the town of
Pleasant Valley, Dutchess Co., on May 4, 1866,
and received his education at the collegiate institute
of Dr. james M. De Ganno, at Rhinebeck, N. Y.
In his young manhood he spent much time in travel
in different parts of his own country.
He married, May 24, 1894, Miss Florence
Aldrich, of Whitefield, N. H.
Mr. Van Vliet's ancestors came to this country

HoN. ABRAHAM A. VAN VoRsT, president of the
Schenectady bank and a former Mayor of Schenec-
tady, died in that city, December 2, 1899, the
dawn of the fourth day of his ninety-fourth
year. He was seized with a sudden illness while
attending a meeting of the bank directors on
November 21, and gradually failed.
Mr. Van Vorst was born November 28, ISO6, in
the town of Glenville, Schenectady Co.
A-t the age of seventeen he became tired of the
farmer's life and came to Schenectady, where he
started in business life as a clerk. Five years later
he entered the hardware business with Henry
Peek. The firm of Peek 85-Van Vorst .was after-
wards dissolved and Mr. Van Vorst continued the
business alone until 1853. ,
In 1858 he became a member of the lumber firm
of Van Vorst, Vedder 85 Co., in which business he
remained until 1874. In 1845 he was made a
director of the Schenectady bank, and in 1872 was
elected vice-president to succeed Judge Paige.
When Gen. Jay Cady, the' president of the bank,
died in 1875, Mr. Van Vorst was elected president,
and. filled the position 'in a most faithful and
efficient manner up tothe time of his last illness.
Mr. Van Vorst, as a nonagenarian, was in sound

In politics Mr. Van Vorst was always a staunch
Democrat' .Besides being Mayor of Schenectady
in 1853, 1854, 1869, 1870, 1882,,and 1883, he has
had considerable prominence in politics, having
served in the Board of Aldermen and been a
member of the Democratic county committee.
V Mr. Van Vorst was very popular, and was a well-
known man in the many fraternal organizations of
the city. He was the oldest Free Mason and also
the oldest Odd Fellow in Schenectady, and was a
charter member of St. George's Lodge, F. Sz A. M.
He was also one of the first members of,Mohawk

He was married in 1830 to Miss Amanda Hul-
bert, of Pennsylvania, who died in 1880, six months
after the celebration of their golden wedding.
The local paper, referring to the funeral, said:
" Seldom 'or never in the history of the city has the loss of a
private citizen occasioned such widespreadlamentation. There
were evidences of profound grief on every hand throughout
the burial services, and it is almost superfluous to say that the
sympathy of the entire community goes out to the members of
the stricken family in their bereavementf'

Holland Society of New York, held Tuesday,
December 5th, 1899, to take suitable action re-

JOSEPH C. HOAGLAND, founder of the Royal Bak-
ing Powder Company, who joined the Holland So-
ciety, June 30, 1892, died December 8, 1899, at
his home, No. 27 West Fifty-first Street, at the age
of fifty-eight years and five months. Last October
lVlr. Hoagland was stricken with paralysis at his
country home on the Shrewsbury River, N. J., and
was, brought to his home in Manhattan.
Mr. Hoagland was born in the village of Troy,
Ohio, and attended the village schools there. He
was preparing to engage in mercantile pursuits
when the war broke out, and he entered the Union
army in 1861, serving mainly in the quartermaster's
and subsistence departments, having been detailed
by Governor Tod, of Ohio, to service at Camp
Chase, Columbus. After the war he went to Port
Wayne, and was part proprietor of a ,drug store
there when he conceived the idea of compounding
'a baking powder that would make housewives
happy by producing certain results. He experi-
mented till he got a powder that seemed to meet
the necessary requirements, and then he began t0
sell it over the counter to local customers. That
was the beginning of the Royal Baking Powder,
and the young druggist, with his brother, Dr. Col'-
nelius N. Hoagland, soon extended the business.
The brothers finally moved to this city, and with
William Ziegler successfully conducted the busi-
ness of the Royal Baking Powder Company.
A dispute about business policy separated the
brothers a few years ago, and Dr. Cornelius N.
Hoagland purchased the Cleveland Baking Powder
Company. After the death of Dr. Hoagland in
Brooklyn about two years ago, Joseph C. Hoag-
land brought about a combination of the com-
panies and retired from active business pursuits
Mr. Hoagland served as a Republican presi-
dential elector in 188o. He was a member of the
Chamber of Commerce, and the Down Town,
Lawyers', and Union League clubs of Manhattan.
At one time he was Commodore of the American
Yacht Club, and owned the steam yacht Sz'1'amge1f.'
Until about three years ago Mr. Hoagland lived in
Clinton Avenue, Brooklyn, his house there being
opposite Dr. Talmage's Tabernacle when it was
burned in the summer of 1894. His country home
on the Shrewsbury River was one of the hand-
somest places in ,New Jersey, the grounds having
been laid out by Frederick Law Olmsted. His
collection of paintings was one of the most note-
worthy in the city. 9
In 1865 he married Miss Caroline C. Matlack,
of Dayton, Ohio, and they have had three
children. . '

HowARD GSTERHOUDT, one of the early members
of the Society, having been elected December 20,
1886,died at his residence, " Eastwood," Kingston,
N. Y., December 25, 1899.
Mr. Osterhoudt was born in Kingston, N. Y.,
December 9, 1842, and was descended from a long
.line of . honorable Dutch ancestors. His early
American ancestor was Jan Jansen Van Oosterhout,
who married, February 18, 1663, Annetjen jellis.
Mr. Osterhoudt graduated from Columbia College
in 1864, having taken the Classical Course, and from
the Law School of the same College in 1866.
The death of his father, Jacob P. Osterhoudt, in
1868 diverted him from his early ambition of being
i 1 i er in New York and he returned to Kings-
iodmtld take charge of his father's coal and lumber
business and later, in partnership with a brother,
he became engaged in the blue-stone business, in
which he continued until his death.
Mr. Osterhoudt was for many years a member
of the old Dutch Church, the church of his fore-
fathers, and was at the time of his death an elder,
the Consistory acting as pall-bearers at his burial in
Wiltwyck Rural Cemetery, Kingston, N. Y., De
cember 28, 1899 :
Mr. Usterhoudt was one of the oldest trustees of
the Kingston Savings Bank, who in token of their
esteem adopted the following minute, January IO,
" The Trustees of the-Kingston Savings Bank feel that they
have sustained an irreparable loss in the death of 'their asso-
ciate, Howard Osterhoudt.
" His ideals were high, his integrity uncompromising, his
courtesy unvarying, and his business judgment sound and

BY EDWARD I. WHEELER.
His prow was pointed toward the Southern stars g
He ploughed a furrow half-way round the world.
The winds of many zones tugged at his spars
And beat his deck before his sails were furled.
On, on, and on-three thousand leagues of sea,
Untried, unknown, he traversed to be free.
Stolid and stern, unsightly and uncouth,
No scented darling he forcourtly game g
But in that slow speech there was steadfast truth,
And dauntless courage in that stubborn frame. , .
On Afric's farthest cape he made his home,
And thanked the good God he could cease to roam.
The Kings played chess, as Kings are wont to play,
Each move an end to some fair land's repose. ,
On Afric's fields, three thousand leagues away,
O.ne tyrant's flag came down, another rose. '
The Dutchman saw with gratitude profound.
V He hailed a savior- a worse tyrant found.
Vain his long search o'er many sounding seas.
Still on the heights doth Freedom love to dwell,
To shake her tresses in the mountain breeze,
And hear the tales the upland forests tell.
Far to the North, where snowy summits rise,
The Boer, outmastered, turned his longing eyes.
Before him lay long miles of arid plain 3
Around him valleys full of plenty smiled.
He yoked his oxen to the lumbering wain,
The jambok spoke in menace shrill and wild.
Each mighty beast, submissive, bent his neck,
And the Boer started on his long, long trek,
Came days of aching toil. Night after night
He faced Death, eye to eye, and stared him down.
With naked fist he met the lion in iightf
And sent him scurrying to his jungles brown.
The savage blacks who came to spoil and slay
Reeled back before the laager's stern array.
Oh, Freedom, dear, if ever man there was,
In all the ages, earned thy favoring smile,
This patient man has earned it. In his cause
Pleads all the world to-day. Yea, even that Isle
That hisses hate of him, thrills, too, with strong
Deep notes of protest against England's wrong. .
Gold! Gold ! Gold ! Gold ! The cry filled all the air,
And wrought like magic on the hearts of men.
The restless souls in every land who dare
Shake dice with Fate, felt the blood leap again. 1
They came in squads - in troops -in rushing stream,
Their motto ever this : " Follow the gleam I "
But most were men of that proud race who hold
The Triple Isle as trident of the sea.
What ! was this Boer to rule a realm of gold?
His slow hand time the march of Destiny?
So came the clash, and on Majuba Hill I
That slow hand proved its swift, unerring skill.
The old Colossus spanned the Rhodian Bay 5
A continent, the new one would bestride,
From Cape to Cairo drive his iron way,
And a new empire for his Queen provide.
' An earthquake laid the old Colossus low,
The new one laughs amid the earthquake's throe.
The lust for gold and lust for empire found
That the bold Dutchman dared their way to block.

HOW THE DUTCH PRESERVED THE
' FREEDOM, IN BODY AND MIND, OP
MIDDLE EUROPE, IN 1639.
BY BREV. MAJOR-GEN. I. WATTS DE PEYSTER, NEW
A.M., Litt. D., Ph.D., LL.D. ftwicel, Member of the Holland Society.
T is very strange how, in two crises of modern
European affairs, the English or British peo-
ple arrogated to themselves the whole glory
of two great victories, when, in pure honesty
and sober truth, the Seven United States, or Prov-
inces, of Holland, were in one case entitled to a full
share of the glory-namely, in the destruction of
the Invincible Armada, in 1588-and in the other
case, Blucher and his Prussian army deserve the
credit for the Hnal overthrow of i Napoleon, saving
the British from annihilation at Waterloo.
In the case of the Invincible Armada, 1588,
Michelet especially tells us :
" Besides the Hollandzkh ships which joined with the English
in attacking the ' Invincible Armada,' it should be borne in
mind that the Siczfes of Holland had pefmzeied one Zhozesand of
Meir mos! experzefzeed sezilofs io serve as wlzmieers on board fize
sailors and soldiers, on board his vessels. The
Roman Catholics, Spaniards, and Imperialists were
getting the better of the Swedes, because Baner,
the great Swedish general, was in very bad health,
and his troops were very much reduced in numbers
and efficiency, while Torstenson, a still greater war
chief, was absent-broken in health and obliged to
return to Sweden. The latter was not able to get
back to Germany until the spring of 1641. It
must be remembered that in 16 39 Baner was
harrying Bohemia, and in I64O had penetrated to
the Danube, and that the Swedish possessions on
the Baltic were almost denuded of troops. '
It can well be imagined what a fresh army, op
erating against that Baltic coast and against Sweden,
and especially the Swedish capital, might have ef-
fected. Moreover, the French armies never cordially
supported either Baner or Torstenson, and lay still
when they should have actively assisted the Swedes,
or left them in the lurch. They were too often
Pharaoh's reeds, piercing the hand and arm they
pretended to support. Baner, driven back towards
his base, and given to dissipation, died on the Ioth of
May, 1641, while his army was completely disor-
ganized,-so much so that no one but the famous
Torstenson could have restored it to efhciency. lt
was almost in a state of fearful mutiny when the
latter arrived, in june, 1641, to assume command
as Generalissimus. Consequently, any one con-
versant with the state of affairs in Middle Europe
at that time, must grasp at once the danger of the
situation to the Protestant cause.
Then it was-when everything looked so dark
for any decided success for the Evangelical triumph
-that there was peril of what might have been
objective which the Spaniards had iniview, in co-op-
eration with the forces of Christian IV. of Denmark,
An extract from this work to this effect, prefaced
by two others showing the general situation, is here
given as follows :
" Some of her fSweden's:I historians have alleged that she
might, by prolonging the struggle fthe Thirty Years' Waril, for
another campaign, have extorted more humiliating concessions
from Austria, as she maintained at the signature of the peace
fof Westphalial above a hundred garrisons in Germany,
several fortresses in the heart of the Imperial dominions, and a
fine veteran army of nearly 7o,ooo troops, supported chiefly at
the enemy's expense. But these favorable circumstances were
more than counter-balanced by the increasing distresses that
prevailed at home fin the Swedish realmj and the continuance
of hostilities between France and Spain, which would have
devolved on the Swedish Regency the whole burden and
hazard of a doubtful contest, at an expense of blood and
treasure that might ultimately have ruined the kingdom."
fVol. ii., p. 74.5
" While the Swedish flag waved on the Danube, certain hos-
tile indications on her part attracted the storm which desolated
the Imperial dominions to the coasts of the Baltic." QVol. ii.,
" The object constantly kept in view by the Court of Copen-
hagen ., . . was to contribute to the conclusion of such a
peace as might . . . exclude the Swedes from such terri-
torial acquisitions on the Baltic and the Elbe as might endan-
ger the security of Denmark." fVol. ii., p. 7 5.5
" Christian's jealousy of Sweden led. him to form the roman-
tic scheme of subduing that kingdom, and destroying the trade
of its allies, the Dutch, in the Baltic. Spain ,favored the de-
sign, and embarked a body of troops who were to join the
Danes before Stockholm 5 but the defeat of the Spanish fleet
fin two battles, 16th September and 31st October, 16391, in the
British Channel by Tromp frustrated the whole -project."
fVol. ii., p. 75.5 .
Such, then, was the situation when, on the dates
above given, the great Dutch Admiral Tromp,
matter of fact, the English outraged every claim
of neutrality in their determination to protect the
Spaniards, and it was only the attack threatened by
Tromp in spite of this protection, braving both the
English and Spanish Heets, which-forced the Span-
iards from their refuge. The imprisonment of
Pennington was because he did not continue his
protection of the Spaniards to the last, even at
the peril of a clash with Tromp, as Charles I,, of
England, not only sympathized with the Spaniards,
but was annoyed to find that Tromp's boldness
frustrated his scheme to drive a sharp bargain with
Spain in her extremity. A more ancient and
more accurate account, also from an English
authority, is given herewith :
" Having advice that a Spanish squadron, composed of ten
large men of war, four frigates, and several smaller vessels, had
quitted the port of Randyke on the 18th of February, Tromp
immediately went in pursuit, came up with the Spanish admi-
ral off Graveline, joined battle, and defeated him, after a
bloody conflict which lasted six hours. The Spanish admiral,
and three more great ships, were driven on the sands, and
taken, and the vice-admiral's ship was burnt, to prevent it
falling into the hands of the Hollanders. Four frigates were
besides taken, and the Spaniards were reported to have lost
near two thousand men, of whom seven hundred were made
prisoners. I l
" The most important consequence of T romp's victory was,
that ftwenty ?iI four thousand men on board the Spanish squad-
ron were destined for a grand armament equipping at Cadiz
and Corunna, the most formidable that had been seen since the
Armada prepared to invade England fin 15881. All the Mari-
time Powers were attentive to the object of this vast Heet.
England and France imagined the Court of Spain intended, in
conjunction with the king of Denmark, to attack Swedeng
while the States General trembled for the fate of the prov-
inces. In fact, the Catholic king had his own immediate in-
terest too strongly in view, to hearken to the suggestion of the
- 99 P
resistance, at last they were totally defeated, withi the loss of
I4 men of war, burnt, sunk, taken, or driven ashore, among
which were the vice-admiral of Spain, the admiral of Galicia,
and the great galleon of Portugal, 14oo tons burthen, mount-
ing So guns, and carrying goo fQuery: 3ooo ?1 men, all of
whom perished by the water or the sword. Twenty-one of the
er1emy's ships put back to the Downs in a wretched plight,
ire-ships were sent to destroy them 3 but the English again in-
terposed, contrary to their neutrality, and the express injunc-
tion of the sovereign. That day thirteen ships more fell into
the hands of the Hollanders, of which eleven only could be car-
ried off, so miserably were they shattered. In a word, of this
prodigious armament, only eight reached Dunkirk. Oquen-
do's own ship was so much damaged that he owed his life
to a frigate sent to his assistance by the generous Tromp.'
Eight thousand men were killed, four thousand wounded, and
two thousand taken prisoners, and carried with the rest of the
spoils in- triumph to the Texel, Briel, and Flushing. All
Europe admired the skill and intrepidity of Tromp, and the
naval power of Holland. The States decreed him the same
honors conferred upon Admiral Hein, and the French king
sent him particular marks of his regard, among the rest a
patent, whereby he was enrolled among the nobility of France.
" Having entirely ruined the maritime power of Spain, the
most vigorous preparations were making to carry on the war by
land with equal success." Af' '
This shows that Tromp's victory in the Downs in
1639 was equal to the Battle of' the Nile in 1799,
or to Trafalgar in 1805.
The following brief account of 'this great triumph
of the Dutch is translated from a Spanish work:
" We had another loss to bewail in the English Channel.
Our fleet, commanded by Don Antonio Oquendo, had two
battles with the Holland squadron under command of Admiral
Tromp. On the first day the result was indecisiveg but on
the second day we got the worst of it, because the English,
who claimed to be neutral, fired both on the Dutch and on the

of Time, vol. xxxi., London, MDCCLXI., pp. 327-329-
Droysen, the noted German historian, says, in
This-Tromp's victory-was the severest dis-
aster which the Crown of Spain could undergo. It
was, indeed, a death-blow to her sea-power. She
could no longer in the Mediterranean maintain a
secure connection with her Italian provinces. Al-
ready had France drawn the Court of Turin into
close alliance. In Catalonia, in Portugal, the most
important movements were already undertaken by
France. And in England the Opposition lifted its
head with fresh courage. The King began to
weaken, and he summoned together that Parlia-
ment through which he was himself, at length, to
It could not be concealed from any one at the
imperial court that the condition of affairs was
most perilous, since at no earlier moment of the
fearful war had it happened that upon itself alone
it had to depend to drive Baner and his Swedes
out of Bohemia, --which followed in the succeed-
ing spring. Only for a moment did there seem
assurance that there was any further hope to tear
North Germany from Sweclen's grasp, or for it
militarily to maintain itself, since France now- no
longer menaced by Spain-would press forward
upon the Rhine districts with redoubled forces. It
was absolutely necessary to provide from other
sources against the deficiency of military supplies
and forces which the misfortune of Spain had
caused. So far Droysen.
Finally, the following paragraph from the Dutch
is confirmatory: Arend, Amsterdam, 1868 QD.
3, 5, pp. 181, 2025, says that such were the Dutch
rejoicings over Tromp's victory, that they sent
of English menace and English force, towers far
above that of the combined English and Holland
fleets over the "Invincible Armada." In 1588 the
blasts of heaven were loosened upon the Spaniards.
One of the very medals struck in Holland to cele-
brate that event summed up the Whole story. The
literal translation is : " God breathed in wrath, and
they were swept into nothingnessf' C' Ajflcwizf

Tromp's victory was due to his perfect com-
bination of the art and science of naval commander-
ship and to the intrepidity, instincts, skill, and
sailorship of his officers and men 3 to the head and
heart of the man at the head, and the discipline
and devotedness of each man behind the guns and
at the tackling and handling of the sails-the pre-
eminent Dutch seamen at the supremest era of the
seven' United States of Holland.

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED BY THE HOLLAND SOCIETY OF
October Second, 1899. I
Resolved -That The Holland Society of New York, com-
posed exclusively of descendants of Dutch burghers resident in
the Colony of New Netherland before 1675, sympathizing
deeply with the burghers of the South African Republic in
their struggle for the maintenance of their independence and
autonomy, earnestly appeal to the Government of the United
States to use its good offices with the Government of Great
Britain for the preservation of peace between'England and the
Transvaal, and for the settlement of the points in dispute be-
tween those two 'nations in a manner that will save to the
South- African Republic the rights guaranteed to it by the con-
vention of 1884. . -
Resolved- That a committee consisting of the President of
this Society, and two members selected by him, be authorized
to present to the President of the United States a copy of the
foregoing resolutions, and to urge upon him speedy ac-tion that
war may be averted between Great Britain and the South Afri-
can Republic, or if war still occurs, that peace may be con-
cluded upon terms that the conscience of mankind will not

ENGLAND RECEDES FRGM THE "RE-
BY REV. DR. C. S. VEDDER OF CHARLESTON, S. C.
Ah, England, was it yesterday
We saw thee bow the knee and pray
In Kipling's grand Recession hymn-
Thine eyes with wise repentance dim-
That far from lust of wider sway, ,
From greed of gold 'and Pride's display
God's hand might thine arrest and stay,
Nor heap thy judgment to the brim?
Didst thou the gate of prayer beset,
With anguished words of sore regret
That' not in I-Ieaven's cause, but thine
Had stretched thy " far-flung battle line"
Of conquest o'er the palm and pine,
And plead with tones that echo yet,
As in eternal iitness set,
" Lest we forget-lest we forget ? "
And has that prayer to Heaven flown,
With happy presage all its own,
That thou Wouldst evermore discard
The " reeking tube and iron shard "
To spread the prestige of thy throne?
Would'st find its praise in hearts alone,
And not where conquered peoples gr0aH,
From manhood's rights debarred ?
