There Was some question as to the best mode of preparing this index, inasmuch as there are so many variations in spelling the cognomens as Well as the baptismal names in these records. Those entering the names in the records appear to have exercised their own judgment as to orthography, and frequently varied it without apparent reason. If all the names were indexed separately, just as they appear in the records with the original spelling, it is evident that the Work of tracing family lineages by the unskilled searcher would be greatly increased. It was concluded therefore that it would facilitate reference by embracing under one heading all names evidently belonging to one family, and indexing them, as far as practicable, under that form Which now seems to be in most com- mon use. i p i It is' also to be observed that most of the early Dutch families were not regularly entered under their family name until many years later. They were mostly known by their patronymic. For in- stance the Heemstraats will have to be looked for, sometimes, under Dirks or Takels, the Groesbeeks under Claasze, the Van der Poels under Wynandtsz, the Van Deusens under Teuisz, the Van Beurens and Vroomans under Meesz or Maas, the Van Bergens under Gerrits, etc., etc. , Appended Will be found a list of the most numerous variations in the surnames that appear in these records: Barens, Barents, Barentsz, Barent.

The newspaper press was requested to lend its aid and promote the end in view. - In an editorial of The New York Times, May 19, 1903, that newspaper spoke as follows: :s p N M2137-7, 1903, Hon. Seth Low, Mayor of Y 3 ' aff Q 7 - . "Complying with the request of Mayor Low that the newspaper press should seek 'to bring home to the people a sense of New York's long history,' and as an appropriate observance of the two hundred and Hftieth anniversary of the founding of a Municipal Government on this island, THE TIMES offers a series of prizes for essays to be written by pupils of the High Schools and Grammar Schools of the city upon subjects connected with the history of New York. ' ' This was propounded as a good way to waken curiosity and stimulate desire to study the story of the cit and it was explained that the first ap- Yv n , peal was made to the scholars, with their receptive IO7 109 their dealers. Cn May 20th the Mayor's ap- Pf0Va10f the plan was quoted, mentioning Janvier as "an eminent authority on all matters pertaining to the city's history, " and an approving 131313631- from H. A. Rogers, President of the Board of Edu- cation, was printed in the same issue. On May 2 3d a similar letter from Charles R. Skinner, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, was printed, The celebration proclaimed by the Mayor was held in the City Hall on May 26th, and an address WELS dG1iVG1'ed by the Mayor, followed by an orap tion by Gen. James Grant Wilson, combined with a reception to distinguished guests. A Fireworks were displayed in the evening at many places in the city. 1 I The articles by Mr. janvier appeared in the seven issues of The Tirnes as proposed, the issue of May 3 ISt containing the first six as well as the lasts Commenting upon the selection of Mr. janvier, the President of the Holland Society, Mr. Theodore M.

You give, in advance of seeing the articles which are so especially commended to our- schools, your endorsement of them as historically correct, and your endorsement will naturally lead the young people in the schools to accept them as in every way worthy of credence. The author of these articles is not known as an historian. He is known as a magazine writer, a novelist, and a sensational journalist, as is evi- denced by his style. The only way we can judge of his qualifications as the historian of the early days of New Amsterdam is by the series of articles he has published in one of our magazines for the last three months on " The Dutch Founding of New York." As an abusive assault on the founders of the city and the ancestors of multitudes of the best people in it, it has no equal, even in the volumes with which New England Writers formerly delighted to occupy themselves in vilifying New Yorkers. I shall cull from these articles a few statements, and ask you in all seriousness if you think their author indicates that he possesses the qualities of an historian, and especially of a work to be submitted to the immature minds of children with the indorsement of the Superintendent of Schools? He refers to the dealings of the Dutch with the Indians, and says that they did not give value for value, but got a shipload of furs for a few hatchets and beads, and con- tinues: " It is but just to the Netherlanders to add that they have lost nothing in the passing of the centuries of their acuteness in such matters, as is evidenced by their Zsggtisto fgili and to keep the weather-gage of the unlucky Hbergte Ztten? iecngo Protectorate to-day." . Here is a de- b l P 0 prejudice his readers against the Dutch, Y makmg them believe that the Belgians, whose alleged I I I atrocities in the Congo Valley have aroused indignation, are of the same people as those- who settled New Amsterdam. He gives an account of the granting of the charter of the Dutch West India Company for of the New Netherland Company, for he is rather hazy about it,j in which no in- considerable part is taken from the work of Mr. Asher, without acknowledging his indebtedness to him and omit- ting quotation points, and then states that though the Assembly did not usually act precipitately, the charter was "railroaded" through in a week, " as the result, we reasonably may assume, of very lively lobbying on the part of a delegation sent to The Hague from Amsterdam." He admits there are no records upon which he can draw for proofs of this statement, but goes on to say that " it is not too much to assert that the precedent then was established of sending lobby delegations from New York to Albany, and I see no reason for doubting that The Hague lobby was run then very much as the Albany lobby is run now." Still later he gives aneaccount of the granting of the charter of the West India Company, and says: "Very interesting would be the record-if it existed and if we could get at it-2 of what happened that day at The Hague after the morning session stood adjourned. Having no record-to go by, we can only make guesses, being guided a little in our guessing by knowledge of what has happened at Albany, .between two sessions of another Assembly, in later times." This is not the spirit of an historian, but that of a sensational scribe who allows his imagination to drive the romancer's pen. Having no facts, he " assumes" and " guesses," and always against the honor and integrity of the people whose history he professes to be writing. Further on he mentions that Broadhead states that the name New Netherland was used for the first time in 16 14, and that he had declared that the name continued for half a century, "until in the fu1111eSS of time right gave way to power, andthe Dutch colony of New Netherland became the English province of New York." Then our author continues: "The question of title that Mr. Broadhead has raised in this loose statement of fact is too large a question to be dealt with here. But it is only fair to add that his hot contention that the Dutch had a just title to their North American holdings is denied ll2 with equal heat by Q Dutflll miiiim-iffy," 'milf-if iw half a column from Mr. Asher, who was not :i I2ii1,f lniiian, but the son of a German University of Heidelberg, and who wrote thi' lhflllk r lli 1 to which the greatest attention is given by t :-1 :,u1,lif,f, Berlin bookseller and czonnef-1,1-fl with the while he was yet a student. Of course he vituperates every Dutch Governor the colony had, and especially Stuyvesant, owing to whom, hg claims, the community " degenerated into a nest of pirates and smugglers during the first thirty years of English rule." He further declares that " in a way the state of affairs in North America in 1661 was very like the state of affairs inthe Transvaal just before the jameson raid," and caps the climax of his vilification of the early settlers of New York with this statement : " That the morals of New Amsterdam did not improve under English rule is not sur- prising, because New Amsterdam had no morals. Un the other hand, its immorals-of which its supply was excessive -developed vigorously in sympathy with its vigorously developing commercial life. In the last decade of the seventeenth century, what with our pirates and our slavers and the general disposition of our leading citizens to ride a hurdle race over all known laws, including the Ten Com- mandments, New York certainly was as vicious a little Zeafaring city as was to be found just then in all Christen- om." lag?

The Netherlands, as soon as they became a republic, insured their spiritual independence by immediately establishing institutions of education. They founded universities in Leyden, Frane- ker, Groningen, Utrecht, and Harderwyckf' Prof. Andrew S. Draper, New York State Superin- tendent of Public Instruction, in a paper published in the Educational Review, April, 1892, conclusively shows that New York, under the Dutch settlers, was the pioneer in public-school instruction and far in advance of Massachu- setts. He makes one significantx statement: " With the dominance of the English government came the English educational theories and policy-high schools for the few, no schools for the people. There is no space here to 'treat of facts in detail. With only a temporary interruption, the English government exercised control over -this terri- tory from 1664 down to the Revolution. No one can show' any act or any disposition on the part of that government, during that century, to promote popular education in New York. The Dutch continued in their local schools so far as they could, in the absence of help from, and even against the opposition of, the government." ' I might continue indefinitely and quote scores of other calumnies and misrepresentations with which these articles teem, for the whole forty pages breathe only the spiritof defamation, and show the evident purpose to besmirch the character of the Dutch settlers of New York, but I have said enough, I think, to evidence that I, am justified, at least, on behalf of our citizens of Dutcliffdescent, in indig- nantly protesting against our public-school system. being used to give standing to this slanderer of our city on this quarter-millennial anniversary of its charter. I must assume that you had notread these articles on which I have commented, and that when you do so you will recognize that its author is not a .proper person to teach the history of the city's foundation to the children of the city, and that you will withdraw your official en- dorsement of this calumniator-Q Yours truly, 4 Qsignedj THEODORE M.

Success smiled upon the plan, and above four hundred members and their guests comfortably filled the grand ball-room of the Waldorf-Astoria. About nine o'clock, the lecturer of the -evening was introduced by President Banta, and for about an hour and a' quarter Prof. Elmendorf held the rapt attention of his audience. Among the special features of the lecture were some very successful moving pictures. The first one took the spectators away on the outward-bound steamer and showed, them the passengers, their amusements and occupationsg gtlien the ocean, with a companion steamer gradually dropping toward the rear, and finally a great Wave, which rose up out of the deep and, With a rush of Water and foam, dashed over everything in sight, in- cluding the bridge and its occupants and the camera, which kept on faithfully recording even this astonishing onslaught. The effect was life- like and startling, and caused a momentary catching of the breath by the specta'DO1'S, f011OWSd by a Well-deserved salvo of app1aL1SG- I2O More pictures followed, with 3PPf0l'N'ifltU and hi hly interesting descriptions, illustrating scenes S . , of various kinds, showing the ways of doing various things in Holland, the loading of hay and other produce upon boats in the canals, the street scenes showing particularly the difficulties which accompanied the travelling camera artist Where- ever he was recognized. He showed also the young Queen Wilhelmina in her balcony, curtsy- ing her acknowledgment of the plaudits of the crowd, etc. Another highly interesting and un- usual moving picture, obtained at very close range, showed a colony of bees in their various opera- tions, making the comb, filling the cells with honey, arriving and departing continually. The time passed so quickly that a second look at the watch was needed to convince one of its flight.

BANTA. HE Holland Society warmly welcomes you W 1 .nul at our Nineteenth Annual gathering. We are happy to have you meet with us, share our bread and salt, and drink of the sparkling stream that flows over Croton Dam, reminding us of the frugal fare and significant nomenclature .of the land of our siresf H , We greet separately and particularly the rep- resentatives of our sister societies ,whose existence evidences the need of their several missions, in setting forth important objects, and incidentally fostering fellowship by eating an annual dinner at De1monico's or the Waldorf-Astoria. r We lift our cap first to venerable St. Andrews, father and forerunner of them all, who for an hundred and forty-seven years has sounded the pibroch, repeated the story of Bruce and Ban- nockburn, insisted upon it that a man's a man for a' that, and blessed with princely benefactions the needy Highlander and Lowlander, making a home across the sea, far from "Scotia, stern and wild. " One hundred thousand welcomes to the ever Friendly Sons 3 though fate decrees that the Q 129 F air Women and Brave M en: , E 130 Harp that hung on Tara's walls shall no longer show its pristine splendor among the standards of the world, the centuries yet attest the patriotism of the Irish heart. Whatever other feasts may lack as guests, of Presidents, Governors, Mayors, and other dignitaries, St. Patrick has never failed for a hundred and twenty years to gather in of the highest on the seventeenth of March. y I am in- clined to think, however, that if Campbell had met with them at Delrnonico's he never would have sung :, " There came to New York a poor exile of Erin, The dew on his thin robe was heavy and chill, For his country he sighed, when at twilight repairing To wander 'alone by the wind-beaten hill." Some of you may recall one part that Ireland had in saving Holland. You have heard of the ever memorable affair at Leyden, when William of Grange raised the siege by cutting the dikes, sailed his ships over the 'land, and brought de- liverance to the starving city. You recall that the invaders fled, leaving their breakfast of savory H udspot for the starving people. Well! the art of preparing.Hudspot had been learned by Castilians shipwrecked on the coast of Ireland, and, as we know, it was the genuine Irish Stew, and you can readily understand that if these Spaniards had not learned how to make Irish Stew, and had prepared their breakfast on that eventful Octo- ber third of Spanish olives, the famine-stricken Netherlanders would have starved I to death! Our. Dutchess County members who celebrate the raising. of the siege every Third October, make the H udspot the dish of honor as unfailingly as S610 1 31 our friends of St. AndreW's dignify the H aggis. We Would have made it the glory of this occasion, but Gscar declared his chef .declined to put it on the menu! fApplcmse.Q We clasp fraternal hands With St. George, With its one hundred and eighteen years, only less ancient than , St. AndreW's and St. Patrick's though We are not always quite sure Where We are at when We are With Englishmen! We strike up our National Anthem, but While our voices rise, singing, M y C owntry, '15 is of Thee! they shout in the same' tune, God Scwe the King! and with that pernicious acquisitiveness that leads them to claim everything in sight, they appear to think the hymn belonged to them ,before We had any country at all! ,And see hovvthey mix us up in studying Eng- lish history! Was 'King Egbert a Saxon or 'an Englishman? Was Canute, when the sea ,obeyed him Cor did he only give the order ?j an English- man or a Dane? Was William the Conqueror an Englishman or a Frenchman? Was William the Third an Englishman or a Dutchman? And is St. George, after all, only a branch of the Holland Society? We of the Holland Society have a special grievance against St. George for seeking to deteriorate Dutch blood! The distin- guishing provision of our constitution is that We trace our eligibility as members back through the male line to the Dutchman of 1675. ' But theSe Englishmen-and the New Englanders Were the Worst of the lot--laid traps for O111' fa-'UhG1'S and grandfathers and great-grandfathers, and in- veigled them into marrying British maids and Yankee girls, and even Widows, and- as a conse- w I 33 ' ' ancestors were mingled with our own of the Holland Society, as together they first fought for home and country in pioneer days, and braved the battle on the banks of the Mohawk as on the Connecticut and on Massachusetts Bay. Of course, we never can forget to honor the Re- volutionary, descendants, the Sonsrof the Revolu- tion, the Sons of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Revolution, the Daughters of the American Revolution, and if our banquet could have been 'postponed a week or two later, the Sons and Daughters of the Panama Revolution! And finally, last and best of all, the Society of the Daughters of Holland, the only really, truly, sure-enough, sister society--we throw our arms around and embrace them all! CGrea,t GPPZause.Q The great event ofthe year to us Dutchmen in New York was the celebration of the 2 goth, Anni- versary of the granting of our city charter by Peter Stuyvesant, and the great event of the cele- bration was the discovery of a new historian of the Dutch! Fifty years ago Dr. Motley, a New Englander, wrote his Rise of the Dutch Republic, and the series succeeding it, and some people 's hearts were stirred with his descriptions of what had been wrought on that handbreadth of sand dunes about the Zuyder Zee. Thirty years later Douglas Campbell of this State, ' ' without a drop of Dutch blood in his veins," as he declared, published The Puritan in H ollaud, Euglaud, cmd America, and attempted to prove that for many of the best things that have benefited the world, we are 1n- debted to those Netherlanders who plucked 3 territory from the sea and a people from bondage., This new historian who has now appeared 11-HS 134 torn away the mask with which Motley and Camp- bell had hidden the real Dutchman, and has shown him up in his true light as a pirate and as the originator of the Albany lobby! It Was such a simple method that the Historian employed that it awakens our admiration. Our city authorities concluded that they would publish the early Dutch records that had been stored in the City Library for two hundred and nity years. Instead of employing some one who had knowledge of the Dutch language and knew all the documents that had been preserved, who had the training of an historian and was com- petent for the purpose, the city authorities pur- sued their usual course in dealing with the Dutch period and appointed a Committee, not one of whom understood Dutch, and not one of whom had adequate knowledge of the records that were in existence or of the relative importance of any of them. Forthwith, at an expense to the city of several thousand dollars, seven volumes were pub- lished under the misleading title of Records of New Amsterdam. These records are mainly similar to the proceedings of Jefferson Market Police Court or of the District Magistrates' Courts. Appar- ently the Committee was not aware that there' were any other 'fRecords of New Amsterdam" in existence. Cur new historian, writing " The Startd- ard History of the City of New York," prepared hiIf1SG1f. for his work by spending several days in reading some such important itemsas that Wyntje Van Twiller had been tried by the Burgomaster and .Schepens for stealing seven olekocks for 0001411-285, and that Aniieke jans, the wife of Domine Bogardus, while passing the blacksmith 135 shopuon a muddy day, had raised her skirts nearly two inches from the ground, and was duly tried for the crime! The historian thug, became ab, solutely competent to deal with all such matters as public education, laws and ordinances, streets, docks, the Orphans' Court, religious affairs, and other things of such minor importance! The great value, however, of the work of this distinguished historian-I regret I cannot give his name-is that he has shown the utter unreliability of the Knickerbocker H istory of N ew York., There were multitudes of persons who had been imposed upon by the charming humor of Washingtoni Irv- ing, and had read its pages with delight. They will read no more. Our new City Historian has demonstrated that the statements of Knicker- bocker are not founded upon fact. He can prove that the ancestor of the Ten Broecks did not wear either tin breeches or ten breeches, and can dis- prove Knickerbocker 's allegation that the way of sweetening tea at the early period in New Am- sterdam was by suspending a large lump of sugar over the table and sending it from mouth to mouth! Our new Dutch Historian had well qualified himself for putting down the pretensions of Irving. He is thought to have been the same person who demonstrated that Mark Twain was unworthy of belief in his I rmooerzts Abroad, and showed, as an example, that his statement that he had wept over the grave of Adam could not be true because Twain had no knowledge of the language in which the inscription on his ancestor's tombstone had been written, and therefore could not possibly have identified the grave when he is alleged to have discovered it! T I 136 It is gratifying to know how highly this new historian is regarded by our City Superintendent of Schools. By his cooperation all the public schools of the city were brought into activity to make the work known and to have it circulated not only through the schools but through the homes of all the teachers and scholars. Fortunately, wicked Tammany was no longer in power, so that no suspicion of graft could attach to anybody connected with this use of our public schools for private gain! Let me conclude by saying that one clause of our constitution contemplates the publication by this Society, when the materials have been gath- ered, of a M emorfial H fistory of the Dutch in Amer- ica, wherein will be " set forth the part belonging to that element in the growth and development of American character, institutions, and progress.

And the unlinkable distancebetween the past and the present is ac- centuated by the Speech of this goodly company.

L QApj5lause.j r . It is one of America"s most cherished memories that in her struggle for independence she enlisted the sympathy and often the personal support of the noblest spirits of the age. This was to some extent due to the hostility felt against' England. The expansion of Great Britain that was then taking place, leading to commercial as well as political antagonisms, and the usurpations of the kingly power, had stimulated enmity on the con- tinent of Europe. But this was not all. Friends of the American cause were not exclusively the produce of hate-the hatred of British tyranny- they were also the product of love-the love of freedom everywhere. The times were times. of restlessness, of aspirations, of theories concerning the rights of man and of the possible emancipation of humanity. France was seething with excite- ment. Rumbling and ominous noises could be I4 I i11gtQ11 at Valley Forge, there was the Polish Pa'C1'10t, K0SCi11SkO, WhO at last fell when strug4 gling against the tyranny of Rusgiag A " Hope for a season bade the world farewell, V And freedom shrieked as Kosciusko fell." And there were the Frenchmen, Baron de Kalb who lost his life at the battle of Camden for " the rights of the people," and La Fayette, "the hero of two worlds " and the Bayard of Liberty. QGreat applausej Q ' y But these were men of war-and not less de- serving of renown than the men of' peace who labored with their governments that the Amer- ican cause might triumph. There were leaders in England, of whom Burke may be taken as a lofty example, who championed the principles under- lying the Revolution. p How inspiring his declaraa tion: "T o govern according to the sense and agreeably to the interests of the people is a great and glorious object of government,"-a sentiment that may have to be learned anew on this aside of the Atlantic. Also immortal the saying: "0ur constitution stands on a nice equipoise with steep precipices and deep waters upon all sides of it. In removing it from a dangerous leaning towards one side there may be risk of oversetting it on the other." But while similar friends may he found in France and Prussia, it was in Holland--the country we are concerned with-where they 'were most numerous and where their services were most vital to the cause of freedom. QAppZcmse.D Among these menwho stretched out their hands across the sea were Noodt, Van der Kessel, Van der Kemp, John Luzac, and Baron Van der I42 Capellen-J ' a democrat who sought to keep clean hands." From the letters of John Adams, Trum- bull, and Livingston we gain an insight into the sympathetic spirit of these and other allies. Six months before the Declaration of Independence the "lending of the Scotch Brigade to the King of England for service in America as a mark v of friendship" was opposed. If the Brigade crossed the Channel, it was not to undertake foreign duty. And the identity of the Dutch patriots with the colonists is ,seen in Capellen's arraignment of William V., where he threatens: " Let all be ready, every man with his musket ,... and let them follow the example of America where not a drop of blood was shed till the English struck the first blow, and Jehovah will support our righteous cause." CG'1feat applausej Adams reached Amsterdam A in August, 178o,+ "a forlorn pilgrim,"-to negotiate a loan. John Luzac and Capellen, with a few other' ' mad " men, aided him, A memorial had been addressed to the States-General Cr78oj demanding recognition, and the Stadtholder received Adams as Envoy. Recognition of the United States followed. The financial .mission succeeded, and five millions of guilders were sent to America when the credit of the country was in peril. Concerning these events Capellen wrote: D" The Dutch really deserve the affection, even the gratitude of America, as it is here the people who have forced the government to .declare her independence and conclude the a1l1ance.',' Mr. Adams declared that this treaty Was the event which turned the scale of the ReV01uti0111'Y War and produced the peace of 1783. Well might our representative rejoice that . 143 he had been enabled to plant the standard of the United States at The Hague, and well might he hope that the value of the service rendered by Holland, already .discounted in his day, might come to be recognized and appreciated, and well may we on this festive night acknowledge our in- debtedness to a race who. not only laid the founda- tions of New Amsterdam, but who added the capstone to our temple of liberty. Cflpplausej "A little country with a great heart " runs the toast. Truly, only a speck of land, with much of it water, and yet a land that shares with the smaller nations, such as Greece and Britain, in shaping and influencing the progress of mankind. A great heart seen in her ceaseless conflict with the sea, whose inroads she has not only checked, but on whose proud. domain she has gained. What Canute the King could not do with his royalty, the Dutch have accomplished by their honest work. A great heart, yes-seen in her resistance of her tyrannical Burgundian Dukes, in her heroic devotion to the Batavian Republic, in her ,prompt assistance rendered .England when the Spanish Armada threatened Elizabeth, by blockading Parma and his invading army, great in her strug- gle for religious liberty against the coercive power of Spain, in which she won a victory, not only for Protestants, but for Catholics as well, for had Holland failed, the Roman Church might 11013 have enjoyed the freedom she now enjoys in the United States, and great in her heroes, in her john of Barneveldt, in her William of Orange, who WHS assassinated in I 584, described as an earlier Wash- ington, fapplcmsej and in that other William, the husband of Mary of the Stuart lineage, and painted k 1 , I 145 assimilationn' and " the White man's burden " 1 There is more benevolence in a straightforward commercial treaty with China, more honesty and civilization than in all the schemes Which look to " spheres of influence," and which can have only one final result-partition and spoliation. "The White man's burden," indeed! When did he ever assume it unless he thought it would pay? Better by far, more benevolent and just, that We should help the dark-skin races to bear their own burden than that We should step in and take their lands and leave them Without any burden at all. QA p- plausej ' p , When We think of Holland as our ally, We must remember that she has aided us in developing the country as Well as in securing its freedom. She has mingled in our population a genuine Dutch strain, and the descendants of the earlier settlers, many of Whom are present, have done much toward making this city the greatest in the World, and only second to the New Jerusalem. Then Holland has given us a Worthy Dutch President, Capplausej at times as strenuous as the famous. Peter Stuyvesant, Whom he resembles in his blunt, trenchant Ways and speech, and as the puissant Peter was needed in those far-off times to build a Wall for Wall Street to keep out the Indians, so now Wall Street ought to hold on to his suc- cessor if it has any special desire to keep out the Democrats. 4fApplause.Q The old Hollanders Were city builde1'S, and theil' offspring have maintained the traditions of the race. These municipalities in their native land Were centres of freedom. When a Cluestiml had to be decided, the bell rang and the citizens came 146 out from their homes and voted. Even in the fourteenth century the imperial authority Was only nominal. It would seem from their annals that they Were chiefly employed in building towns and navies. Their children, and those Whom their children have influenced, are very much like them. Some of the peculiarities of New Am- sterdam havef survived in New York. In the times of Stuyvesant many Worthy burghers were averse to paying taxes-and it is so still--and de- licious controversies Were carried on as to how the town could be run Without some of them bearing their part. In one debate With certain citizens regarding Christmas observances, the stalwart director suggested the dubious morality of "look- ing through one's fingers," a habit successive New York oliicials have had when their fingers were not more profitably employed. CLaughte1' and ap- plcmsej It is also recorded that fines were imposed on the Schepens for late attendance on the public councils, but, tmfortunately, these penalties failed to cure the habit, and hence to-day the average New Yorker is never on time-unless it is for an office. QLaughte1'.D But in this he is equalled if not surpassed by the Ohioan. laughter cmd applcmsexj The first revenue for the Dutch mu- nicipality Was derived from the liquor traffic, and excise questions have continued to torment our citizens ever since. CApplause.j i These Hollanders were great traders, and, ac- cording, to their light, were restrictive commer- cialists. Their coolness toward England was engendered largely by revenue differences, they objected to the Scotch having access along the Hudson for the purpose of traffic with the interior: 147+ , and thelf 10st Belgium in 1830, for the operation of the Dutch tariff Was- onerous to the Belgians. The .Powers declined to interfere, for they thought it Wiser that the new State should be recognized than that 'War should devastate the land. ' ffhus in our day the intensity of the business spirit may carry us too far, and in our anxiety to develop national riches and attain to unrivalled commercial supremacy may lead us to adopt methods and policies which ultimately may react against us and may impair our prosperity at home and our prestige abroad. For the sake of any conceivable' gain to take advantage of our own citizens or to ignore the rights of the Weakest friendly nation, is at once indefensible and peril- ous. Adam Smith inquires "Whether a trading government is not the Worst of all? " I am not sure that it is, and I am sure that it is 'not as bad as military or even ecclesiastical rule. But, nevertheless, it needs to be constantly Watched and preserved from excesses. Trade is jealous of its sovereignty, is sensitive to criticism, and in the consciousness of its value to society is in danger of ignoring' all other values. When manhood protests against this recurring indifference, it is often criticised as stupid and as blind to the importance of material prosperity. But the criticism misses the point of the protest. It is not a protest against money honestly accu- mulated, or against industry reasonably and equitably fostered by the state, or against com- merce honorably extended. It is only an appeal from Philip drunk to Philip sober, a remon-- strance that the trade-spirit is not superior to all laws human and divine-and that to insure its I I 1 , , 1 1 i i 1 x 1 I 1 4 a yn E1 I if l w 1 4 I 5 ""4",'!..".." ..a. ,.,,,,..,,,,,, r 148 triumph it is not at liberty to disregard the sanctity of the Sabbath and rob the people of their day of rest, or free by speculative schemes to ex- ploit the mass for the benefit of the few, or by means which entail moral degradation and promote lawlessness and the excesses of working men's unions to create a condition of things as danger- ous to wealth as to virtue. fAppZause.D It is well at 'such a time as this to recall the Revolution era. The contrast between thosedays and our own is impressive. There is no reason to assume that refinement, culture, and .splendor are fatal to the vigor and perpetuity of freedom. In the course of human affairs changes in many re- spects are unavoidable. Customs, fashions, modes of administration may change, and liberty sur- vive and flourish. For she is no hot-house plant, no weak exotic ready to perish when the seasons blow hot or cold. 'The eternal years of God are hers." Bent by the blast she may be, scorched by the heat of excessive prosperity-but when all the little actors of the hour have passed on she will renew her youth. Still, we should remember that her perpetuity is grounded in the ethical. For as I study the past I am convinced that there is no liberty without justice and no real justice apart from liberty. I-Iow can justice be expected at thebar of tyranny, and how can liberty endure if the Sceptre of justicefails to enforce equal law and equal right? Here justice has reared its de- fences around liberty. Barriers sufficiently strong to guard her against destructive inroads have been reared by constitutional law, We need 'no new 80Ve1'11II1ent and hardly any new safeguards. We have enough, if they are only respected, and if, 149 . when they are threatened, they are only at once maintained. Eternal vigilance is as needful HOW as in the past. Our chief peril is undue confidence and neglectfulness. Rudyard Kipling draws a picture of this kind. He portrays the people of Holland as failing to care for and strengthen the dykes that keep out the sea. They go on in this folly until a storm arises, and the galloping breakers stride and dash through the decaying embankments. Devasta- tion and death are everywhere, and the retreating 'citizens take up the wail: l gs Now we can only wait till the day, wait and apportion ' our shame! . . 'These are the dykes our fathers left, but we would not , - look to the same. H Time and again were we 'warned of the dykes, time and 4 ' again ,we delayed: , I - A ' .Now, it may fall, we have slain our sons as our fathers we have betrayed! " H 4 No Hollander in Holland would act as guiltily toward his country and jeopardize life and prop- ertyg and surely the descendants of Holland in America will guard the dykes for "their great profit and care" 'reared to defend liberty and free institutions. r And instead of this lament, they and their children shall' sing: ll " For the peace is not gone, nor the profit gone, 1'10fI' the Old sure day withdrawn, .And we will keep the dykes as firm and strong as they were at the break of dawn." I -THE PRESIDENT: We are highly honored by havin with us to-ni ht the representative at 8 8 Washington from the Flowery KingdOII1, the EHVOY l yy' 0 150 from China, Sir Chentung Liang Cheng.

He was Secretary to the Envoy at the Court of St. James at the time of the coronation of King Edward.

M 12 President, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Holland HAVE, always thought that respect for S ancestors Was ra peculiar trait of theChi- ,A nese character. It is the result of the teaching of Confucius, For this reason, ancestral temples, With- their Stately halls and spacious courts, are as conspicuous buildings in a Chinese city as churches, With their skyQpiercing spires, in 'an American one. 'Every family of any conse-' quence has one or more temples of this character, Where its members can gather together at Stated intervals, and pay honor to their departed pro- genitors. Respect for ancestors may be regarded as one of the mainsprings of Chinese society. Cflpplansej. But Who Would expect Such a sentiment to prevail to any extent in a country like America? CLanghte1'.D This is a land for self-made men, Who, as a rule, regard ancestry as a matter of secondary consideration. Still less Would one expect to find in bustling and hustling New York a body of men Who have time enough to give a passing thought to their distant origin.

I need hardly add that I heartily sympathize with its purposes. It affords me peculiar pleasure this evening to be in the com- pany of men who hold the memory of their an- cestors in gratitude and reverence. Macaulay has Well 'said that a people which takes no pride in the noble achievementsof remote ancestors will never achieve anything .Worthy to be remembered with pride by remote descendants. The rise of the Dutch Republic is a period in the World's history fraught With momentous signifi- cance. The gigantic figures of William the Silent, Maurice of Nassau, DeWitt, Von Tromp, and De Ruyter, to this day loom up grand and majestic. fflpplausej p The achievements of the Dutch in the cause of political freedom and religious toleration, in com4 rnerce, in science, and in art, have been various and splendid. Indeed, any nation might Well be proud of such a long succession of great soldiers, statesmen, natural philosophers, and painters as the Dutch have given to the World. QAppZcmse.D But the people that succeeded in reclaiming land from the sea-the people that, in the defence of their country, dared to cut the dykes which held back the Waters of the ocean-were not made of common stuff. The narrow limits 'of their country could not confine their activities. They had to expand, the result is history. Cflpplausej They set a king upon the throne of England g they planted colonies in the Wilds of Africa, they founded cities and settlements in the New World, they spread their dominion over the islands of the East Indies. 153 p In their East India Company they had a power- ful agency for bringing- the nations of the East and West into closer relations. It had trading posts along the coast of Asia from India to Japan, The cargoes of spices which its ships brought back ffgm the East made their owners rich and Amsterdam the most wealthy city in Europe. Prosperity followed in the wake of commerce, It was the beginning of an era of commercial expansion, which occupies so much of the attention of the world at the' present day. It is a satisfactory sign of the times that the importance of commerce to the life and growth of a nation is being more and more appreciated every day. Qflpplausej In ,so far as commerce stimulates the production of wealth, it makes for general peace and discoun- tenances war. f 4 A Fortunately for the presentiday and generation, the world has advanced so far in enlightenment and civilization as to' have other means of settling international disputes than 'a resort to arms.. .Men have grown wiser. At the same time, the nations of the earth have been drawn closer together. Steam and electricity have made it possible for events taking place in the remotest corners of the earth, not only to become known in the newspaper offices throughout Europe and America, but in- stantly to be felt on the Stock Exchanges of Lon- don and New York. War at the present day not only involves the parties directly concerned, but also affects the in- terests of other nations. The extension of coma merce has brought about all this. The Czar Of Russia only gave concrete expreSSiO11 130 what all mankind felt some years ago when he iSS11ed 3 154 general call for a Peace Congress. Consequently he met with a ready response from every Govern- ment. It is fortunate that the deliberations of the Congress resulted in something tangible--the creation of an International Tribunal of Arbitra- tion at The Hague. T ' This is a long step toward the ultimate abolition of war. Now that there is a 'high court of justice which offers to every nation a way out of every difficulty with another without sacrifice of dignity or honor, it is to be hoped that the time is not far distant when war between nations will be only a painful memory of the barbarous past.

President, Gentlemen of the Holland Society, T is a very great pleasure for me to be 'With i you to-night and take part in this high 1- E -festal occasion. I came with a feeling of great interest, because the Chairman of the Committee on Entertainment, in telling me what the Holland Society Was, stated-that every one of its members had been born prior to 1675, Clanghterj and While there are some of you Wholook it, there are others that lead me to doubt the absolute ac- curacy of the statement. Where outside of ,Hol- land can the virtues and fortitude of the Dutch ancestry be more fittingly celebrated than in this city of New York? At the present moment, with this meagre dinner finished,'its members strikingly remind me of the starving Burghers of Leyden. CGfeat Zanghtenj It jis , true that there is .little evidence at this banquet boardof that Water with which Holland is so surrounded and intersected, but even Water is suggested to us by the p1'eSe11CG Of some of the distinguished financiers of Wall Street, who caught from their Holland ancestry the desire to Water lentifully every business ven- 'P . ture. QLanghter.j joking apart, the virtues of Iss Ladies and Gentleneen: 1 iiii Wil i . K , 156 Holland can be most fittingly celebrated in the New York, because it is the true child of Amsterdam, and inherits from its mother city those qualities of cosmopolitanism and commer- cialism which have made it so surpassingly great. I feel some embarrassment in attempting to justify in any manner to-night the very great com- pliment of your invitation. In the first place, Dr. Lorimer's scholarly address has already so elo- quently sounded the praises of your Dutch ancestry that little remains to be said. I am further embarrassed because to-night I am meta- phorically between Scylla and Charybdis, or shall I say the Urient and the Gccident ?i To follow the Minister of China is difficult. To precede the dis- tinguished Nebraskan, impossible. Qflpplauselj In this feastof reason and flow of soul, therefore, I oc- cupy the place to Which, in the play of the Ad- mfimble C richton, is given the suggestive name of Twenie, for I speak when your minds are still linger- ing With pleasure upon the thoughtful sentiments of the Chinese Minister or are about turning With pleasurable anticipation to those about to be ut- tered by the most eloquent of living Americans. Like his distinguished predecessor, the Chinese Minister has, With his American education, become Americanized. Indeed, I might define him as an accidental Occidental Griental. And so I feel, to quote the immortal poet if city of " As when a Well graced actor leaves the stage, I All eyes are idly bent on him who enters neXt.", But my embarrassment is the greater in the thought that in every minute that I am occupied Wlth YOUT lndulgence, I am unreasonably postpon- ' 157 y ing the pleasure which We all anticipate in listening to one Who has proved, in his remarkable career, that the age of the printing press has no more de- stroyed the age of oratory than the chromo has supplanted the oil painting. Cflpplausej I hope that my speech, in its poverty of thought and Wit, Will be but an appetizer to the feast of eloquence to Which We will soon be treated, and therefore I simply say to Mr. Bryan, in the Words of the courteous Prince of Denmark to Laertes, at the beginning of the fatal combat: n " I 'll be your foil, Laertesg in mine ignorance I Your skill shall, like a star i' the darkest night, Stick fiery off indeed." QApplause.J Indeed, I should underfthe circumstances 'hesi- tate to speak at all, but the Chairman of the Committee has assigned to me a place on the pro- gramme, and I am very, much in the position of a phlegmatic Pennsylvania Dutch soldier of whom I once heard, Who fought on the Union side inthe Civil War. In the course of one of the battles he was captured by the Confederates. While they were taking him to the rear, he said, in a perfectly placid and unconcerned Way, "Vat you going to do with me?" They replied, jokingly, "Why,we 're going to hang you, you d--d Yankee. " "Vell, " he said calmly, "vatever is the rule." CGreat lcmghtevxj It may be that in all these apologetic remarks I am unnecessarily borrowing trouble, but I have always found that with the Dutch trouble is the only thing you can borrow unless you have got good security. CLaughte1'.D You have been kind enough to assign to me a toast which is specially pertinent to the occasion, 1,59 o Horace, as there were brave men before Agamem- non, similarly there were martyrs to liberty be- fore the M ayflower 'appeared in Massachusetts Bay, Holland's struggle of eighty years' dura- tion against the mightiest power of that time, un- questionably made possible modern democracy., It lit a train of human revolt, which has slowly and increasingly blasted a pathway of freedgm for humanity through the granite rocks of Caesar- ism and feudalism. To 'the masses of men in every part of the world, struggling to escape from the house of .bondage and into the promised land, it has ever been as la pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night. Cflpplausej This memora- ble valor speaks to' us to-night out of the past, reminding us, with an eloquence unattainable by mortal man, of our debt to the dead and our duty to the unborn. Alkmaar, Haarlem, and Leyden -4how, supremely glorious in the annals of history! Could their walls repeat the dreadful sounds and sights which they have witnessed, what a tale of immeasurable sorrow would they not tell!, Mar- tyrdom hallows, and wherever a man has con- sciously laid down his life for a country that he loved or a cause in which he believed, that spot must be forever sacred, for it is a true Calvary, .and there is again repeated the infinite tragedy of the Cross. CAppZcmse.j Thorvaldsen has imperish- ably chiselled both the pathos and the grandeur of this truth in his Dying Lion, at Luzerne: r the head, so expressive of ability, the infinite pathos of the eye, and the thought of fidelity in the paw which tightly presses the shield of the Bourbons- all attest, in imperishable rock, the same imperish- able truth. The streets of Alkmaar, where the 16o very children fought with the undying courage of their parents, were they not a true via dolorosa? That market-place at Haarlem, where, after a seven months' siege, the defenders were butchered, without respect to age or sex, is it not a golgotha, or place of skulls? The spirit of the "Beggars of the Sea" was well expressed in those defiant words, hurled from the battlements of Leyden to the remorseless foe: "You call us rat-eaters and dog-eaters, and it is true. So long, then, as ye hear dog bark or cat mew, ye may know the city will hold out, and when all has perished but our- selves, be sure that we will each devour our left arms, retaining our right, to defend our Women, our religion, and our liberty. When the last hour has come, we will set fire to the city and perish, men, women, and children, in the flames, rather than suffer our homes to be dishonored and our liberties crushed." CG1'eat applausej That this boast was not an empty one was well shown by that old Dutch admiral, who, having fought against overwhelming odds for forty-eight hours, called his men about him when his ship was a dis- masted hulk, and, with their permission, applied the match to the powder magazine and blew them all into eternity rather than surrender to the foe. Mpplausej p s It is not my purpose, however, to recount this bead-roll of unclouded heroism. The world knows, or ought to know, it by heart. But I wish to call your attention to the fact that this heroism was that of an essentially, commercial and peaceful race. T For some centuries prior to the struggle for independence, Holland had been the most com- mercial, and therefore the most civilized, country 4 'I6I of the World. They Were the first manufacturing, agricultural, and commercial people, This was the more astounding because, apart ffom the poverty of their country's natural resources, they were obliged to create the very land upon which they lived. The immemorial folly of Canute, who had vainly told the Waves of the ocean to stand back, was With them an inspired reality, for at their sublime determination, the Waves of the all- conquering ocean did recede and left this little alluvial strip of territory, Which, like Palestine and little Greece, Was so memorable in the annals of human progress. Having thus ,conquered the sea, it was not unnatural that they early made it their obedient vassal. They became the best sailors and the greatest merchants of the World. Their manufactures of Wool, silk, linen, and lace were the first in Europe, and did much to lift the European peoples from their condition of squalor and poverty. Their sails Whitened every sea and brought drugs and spices from the East, Wines from France, furs from Russia, in exchange for which they gave not merely the products of the soil, but the Wonderful results of their artisan in- genuity. Their manufacturing enterprise can be measured by the fact that as early as 1340 there .Were in Ghent 4o,ooo Woollen Weavers, While a few years later the goldsmiths of Bruges were so numerous as to form an entire division of the na- tional army. In the ivvake of commerce followed art, learning, and science, and, best of all, those free institutions upon which the early coloniStS of America' built to such manifest advantage. Com- merce Was so much the very life-blood. Of the Dutch people, that even during their hfe-and- I62 death struggle with Spain, they in some manner maintained it. In 1595 they had rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and in r 598 sailed through the Straits of Magellan. They came, not as pirates and freebooters, but as merchants, who sought nothing more than an exchange of products. When the seventeenth century was in its infancy, there came into existence the two great trading companies of the Dutch East Indies and the Dutch West Indies, and to the latter we owe the discovery of our noble river and the founding of New York. CApplcmse.D It has been well said that New York is the true child of Amsterdam, and it inherits from Amsterdam the two things which have made it greatest-its cosmopolitanism and its commercialism. 5 I have mentioned this because the brave Hol- landers have proved beyond possibility of con- tradiction that the noblest spirit of self-sacrifice and the most enduring courage were possible with an -essentially commercial people. In our time there are not wanting jeremiahs, who declaim ,against the spirit of our time, and who affect to feel that men, inspired by the lust of gold, are rushing down to an abyss of dishonor with the insensate fury of the Gadarene swine. If I shall, in passing, say a word with reference to this mat- ter I trust that I shall be acquitted of any dis- respect to Mr. Bryan. In common with many Americans, I have very great- personal respect for him. You will remember that when, in Twelfth N ight, Malvolio was imprisoned, as a supposed madman, and when the curate and his mischievous followers were mocking him, theyasked him what was his opinion of the doctrine of Pythagoras, and I 6 3 Malvolio, who in no ,way suspected the cruel joke which was being played upon him, replied: "I think nobly of the soul, but in nowise approve of his opinion." And so there are many Americans who think nobly of Mr. Bryan, but in no respect share his political views. With this disclaimer of personal disrespect, let me say that I noticed that last Week he said the coming struggle was to be be- tween man and Mammon, between the plain people and organized wealth, and he especially condemned the spirit of commercialism, by which we under- stand the spirit of colonization. He could have pre- ferred the same indictment against the Hollanders, for with them commerce was the passion of their lives, and, as an incident to commercial enter- prise, they were, in -their time, the greatest col- onizers of the world. They wrested from' Spain many of her wealthiest possessions in two hemi- spheres, and even to-day this little kingdom, hardly 13,000 square miles in area, governs colo- nies which are 766,ooo square miles, or nearly sixty times greater, while this little country, whose population is less than that of either New York, Pennsylvania, or Illinois, governs wisely and justly in two hemispheres colonies whose population is 32,ooo,ooo of souls. Cflpplausej Holland paved the way, for both England and America, for com- merce and colonization. We are but following in her footsteps, and if we are wrong to-day, Holland has been ,wrong throughout her history, for her Eighty Years' War, which commenced as a purely religious struggle, soon became a death struggle between Spain and Holland for the commercial supremacy of the world. Was this spirit of com- me,-Ciahsm, in her Case, inconsistent with the I the Duwh People was f01111ded upon two princi- ples, which are essential to the progress and 1-lap- pineSS of any people. Une was the inalienable right of every man to work for whom he pleased, and at what wage he pleased, and enjoy freely the fruit of his toil, Cgreat applauseb and the other was the sanctity of property. To me,-'these prin- ciples are in some need of vindication in this country and at this hour. Man Was brought into this world to work. It is not only his burden, it is his right, and any form of social tyranny which contravenes this right is infinitely mischievous. In vain are written con- stitutions, with their written guarantees of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, if the right of the humblest citizen to earn his bread in the sweat of his brow is thus denied. fApplcmse.j ln- deed, this form of slavery is little better than murder, for in a large sense Shylock spoke the truth when he said: "You take my life when you do take from me the means whereby I live." QA p-- plausej The right of Labor to combine for its elevation and improvement is fairly conceded, but when a labor organization, with a membership of less than one tenth of the manual workmen of America, seeks to create a labor oligarchy and to compel every laboring man to join this organiza- tion, under the penalty of a denial of the right to labor, the time has come to call a halt. CGTECU applausej The Dutch people had their labor guilds, and they fittingly emphasized the fZ1i8111l3Y of labor. They served to upraise the diferent crafts, or, as they were called, "mYS'CG1'16S,'i to which each guild was devoted, but if any labor guild in Holland should have attempted 130 Pfe' 166 I scribe, as a condition of the right to labor, fealty to it as an organization, the workmen of Holland would have risen as much against this offensive form of tyranny as against that of the Duke of Alva. CG71'eatapj9Zause.j The barbarity of the boy- cott in its tyrannous attempt to club the free labor of our land into submission to a labor oligarchy has been strongly illustrated within a few months in the city of Chicago, where its citizens were not even given permission to bury their dead unless they employed a union driver for the hearse. One citizen of Chicago showed he had somewhat of the old Dutch hatred of tyranny, for, with his dead child in a carriage, he sat upon the driver's seat with a rilie across his lap, and vowed that he would kill the first man who stopped his free progress to his dead child's grave. QG1'eat apbplausej I The other Dutch trait to which I refer has also its salutary lesson for us to-day. It is the sanctity of property. There seems to be little disposition on the part of our leaders of public opinion to assail this right of property when it is small and in- considerable in value, but when property, in its amount, is called wealth, it seems to lose some of its sanctity. Upon what ethical principle does the sanctity of property depend ? Upon its amount? I cannot but think that the commercial prosperity of Holland was due in large measure to the good feeling between the rich andthe poor, CApplcmse.D Its people did divide on religious and political questions, but rarely on the principle of meum et mum. To-day, however, we are told, on eminent authority, that the coming political campaign is to be one between the plain people and organized wealth, and, if this means anything, it means that 167 the contest will be between those who have not ery great respect to and those who have. With V those who .thus view the coming contest, and in no way questioning their sincerity or high mgtiveg, I yet venture to assert that this line of cleavage between the classes is as mischievous as it is lack- ing in Justification. As we value our industrial progress, as we value that which is even higher- our social happiness-let us so far imitate the wise thrifty and industrious people of Holland as to feel that life is a great symphony, in which each man is given an instrument suited to hisaptitude, but to the complete harmony of which the loyalty of each player is indispensably necessary. The Composer of that symphony intended it to be one of harmony and notof discord, and woe be .to us, His creatures, whether we play the first violin or only the cymbals, if we mar the harmony of that composition by that discord of class hatred. which, since the world began, has been the baleful 'evil of communities and nations. fApplcmse.D ,a a . The distinguished speaker who is to follow me, and whom I have already unduly postponed, is to speak on peace, and I have no thought of tres- passing either on his time or his subject. But let me say simply this about peace. I suppose he will refer to paciiic relations between our nation and other nations, or between nation and nation, and in that respect it is a beautiful theme upon which so eloquent an orator is to speak, but if there be one nation that is little concerned with peace of this class it is our country, for the time iS HOW, of in any event will be soon, that it will be so great that no nation will ever dare to menace the peace of the United States. CAppZause.j And THY only 168 concern is that we are so sure, by reasonof our strength and power, to be immune from touch that we may some day be unjust by reason of that very immunity. But the peace which is the vital question of the hour, and which you descendants of a brave ancestry, and all of us who are here assembled, must fight out unless free institutions are to be a failure in this country, is peace within, peace between class and class, peace between em- ployer and employee, peace that will recognize not only justice, but recognize, as an incident to justice, the right that every Dutchman claimed, the right, as I have stated, to work for whom he pleased, for what wage he pleased, and on exactly what conditions he pleased. QL0ud applausej A THE PRESIDENT: Our next speaker has recently appeared in a new role. He has crossed the briny deep, travelled into distant countries, and inter- viewed all foreign potentates. At one time some of us thought he might be adopted by the Czar of Russia of by some other distinguished ruler on .the other side, and it was a great joy to us to know that 'he remains American. " " He might have been a Rooshan, A A Turk, or French, or Prooshan, Or perhaps Eye-tal-i-an,- But in spite of all temptations A To belong to other nations, He remains American."- And he comes back to us as American as ever. I have very great pleasure in introducing the Hon- orable William jennings Bryan, who will talk on PEACE.

ADDRESS oF HoNoRABLEW1LL1AM I JENNINGS BRYAN. a . M r. President, M embers of the 'Holland Society, Ladies and Genllemenk k P p P pi I ESTEEM it a great privilege to be herei uf I received this invitation. While I was in " a Europe, and - your President -sent' me a book- telling what had been done by the Society and reproducing. some lof the speeches that had been made. 'He also gave me the names of some of the distinguished men Who, in timespast, have appeared before this Society. It is a great array of distinguished names, and ,as I looked , overthem and saw how they represented different' elements of our national life and recalled different characterf istics of the early settlers, I wondered f if in the selection you .had not tried to find men, living, to- day Who inf some Way' Would remind- youof the great men among, the Dutch. F or instance, ,I see that Senator Depevv of New York has spokenhere, and I feel sure that he was invited because hecn make as good a bargain as Peter Minuit 'who bought the island from the Indians. Ulfwghlfel'-l And then I see that the President has been hefe' It has been suggested that he was selected be- cause he recalled the strenuousness of Peter Stuy- vesant. I do not know Why I Was invited, Hfl1CSS 169 170 my reticence might have suggested William the Silent. Qflpplause and great lcmghterj I accepted your invitation gladly, because I know by observation that one can learn much more by seeing things than by reading about them. I had read of the way the early Dutch lived here, and I wanted to come in order that I might have an object-lesson, for, of course, your banquet here is made as much as possible like the dinners that they had upon Manhattan in the early days. I can almost see those Dutch now, and I can hear them, or I thought I heard them when I heard the rattle of your wooden shoes upon the iloor. Clough- terj But, do you know, I have been wondering since I came if a part of the history of these early settlers had not been left untold. We all know that the English came one time and took posses- sion. Now, I have been among the English lately, and I cannot believe that they would do anything so impolite, at least those whom I met were not, I am sure, responsible for anything very bad. And this is the way I explain it: The Dutch were eating then, as you are eating now, they had a sumptuous repast, and the English, learning of it, were simply unable to withstand the temptation to take possession of the tables. I And if the Dutch who were at the tables felt as little like fighting as I do now, they did not make a very vigorous re- sistance. CLcmghter.j But as soon as they had time to digest their food and rest a little, they went and took back the tables from the English. I am satisfied that that accounts for the temporary cession of Manhattan Island. , 'fflpplausej I am glad to be here, glad to see you, and to learnxjust how they did in those days, for I think I under- 171, stand the Dutch better now than I did when I simply read about them. I I have enjoyed the speeches made, only I am a little embarrassed by the compliments paid bv my good friend, QMr. Beck,j and I think I undef. stand now why he apologized for what he was going to say. I-Ie knew he' was going to speak so well that he would have to apologize for it, or it would seem unfair to me. QLcmghte1'.j As I lis- tened to him, I could not help thinking of the excuse that a Chinese editor once gave for reject- ing a manuscript that some one sent in-it was probably from ' ' Pro Bono Publico," or-' ' Constant Reader," or "Veritas," The editor sent it back, saying that he was unwillingito publish it because it was of so high an order of merit that it would set a standard of excellence that no one else' could approach, and that it would, therefore, cause a good deal of dissatisfaction in the country. QLcmgh- tem I am afraid that Mr. Beck has set such a high standard of oratory here that it will be very difficult for myself and for the speakers at future Holland Society dinners to rise to his standard. Another thing, I am embarrassed by the fact that both he and my friend Dr. Lorimer over here touched on politics. I do not like to have anyu- body touch on politics when I come last. Cflp- plausej I do not know how I am going to withstand the temptationto talk politics 11111635 I retaliate on Brother Lorimer, as he, a preachef, made a political speech, I, somewhat in p011'C1CS, may preach a sermon. CCries of "B1'cwo! " and applausej . I i My subject is Peace, and have been thinking about it, especially since the trip that I made T30 172 the Netherlands. I am not going to speak here of the wonderful bravery of those people, a bravery exemplified all through their history, a bravery of which we had a recent illustration, when a handful of them down in South Africa made such a heroic fight for their existence. While they failed there, they brought blessings to liberty-loving people everywhere, for they made a war of conquest so expensive that no nation in the near future will attempt to take independence from a republic, however small. QApplamse.D . I have been thinking of the progress made by the inhabitants of the Netherlands, how they have rescued their lands from the seas and won their victory over Neptune. I was interested in the quaint cities there, with their hundreds of canals and their leaning buildings. I was interested in all that I saw, but I was impressed most by the fact that the Netherlands is to furnish the site for the Temple of Peace soon to be erected, Qapplausel that, on that soil, reddened by the blood of an Eighty Years' War, will rise the permanent home of the Arbitration Court. At The Hague I re- called the long struggle for freedom of conscience, for freedom of speech, and for constitutional gov- ernment, and rejoiced that at last the fragrant flower of peace had appeared upon the thorny stalk of war. I am glad that an American citizen has contributed the money that makes it possible for this building to be erected in a place so well fitted for it. QApplcmse.J And as I thought of little Holland-little among the nations and yet great in contests where mind and heart control-I recalled the words of the Prophet of old, who foretold an era of peace so universal and so profound that to 173. emphasize it he pictured it as extending even to the animals, and said that the wolf would dweu with the lamb, that the leopard would 119 down with the kid, that the calf, the lion, and the fatling W0U1d keep Company 'GOgether, and that a little child should lead them. Are our eyes to Witness the fulfilment of this prophecy? In a forum where right prevails and where dis- putes are settled, not by armed force but by reason, a little nation like the Netherlands can enter into an honorable rivalry with her more populous neighbors. But this has not come all at once. It has been of gradual growth, as all things are that are strong and lasting. The trees that are able to withstand the storms mature slowly, and so do great movements, y ' " Heaven is not gained by a single boundg We build the ladder by which we rise From the lowly earth to the vaulted skies, And mount to its summit round by round."V- ' So with reforms, it takes time to work them out. We need not expect that the nations will disband their armies at once, we need not ex- pect that all difficulties will be taken before the Court of Arbitration, but we have reason to be- lieve that the light of a better day is dawning, and that we are about to enter upon an era in which conscience will assert its supremacy Over brute force, and the crown of victory be awarded, not to the nation that has the largest army or the strong- est navy, but to the nation that sets the best ex- ample and contributes most to the welfare of the world.

When Elijah was fleeing from the wrath of wicked Jezebel and be- lieved all the prophets to have been slain, the Lord commanded him to stand ,upon the mountain, and, as he stood there, a mighty wind swept by him and rent the rocks asunder, but God was not in the windg and after the wind came an earthquake, but God was not in the earthquake, and after the earthquake, a fire, but God was not in the fire, and after the tire, a still, small voice, and it was the voice of God. And so, to-day, throughout the world an increasing number, standing upon the heights, are coming to believe that God is not in the ironclads that sweep the ocean with their guns, that God is not in the armies that shake the earth with their tread, that God is not in the iire of musketry, but in the still, small voice of justice that issues from tribunals like that in- stituted at The Hague. cAPPlGMS6.7 There have been times when bravery upon the battlefield was considered the .highest form of virtue. There have been times when intellectual supremacy, and intellectual independence were considered all-sufficient, but the time is coming when heart, characteristics will receive the attention they de- serveg the time is coming when we shall, not , de- Ene civilization as Buckle dened it, ' ' as measured bythe mastery of the human mind over the forces of nature, " but shalldefine it as the harmonious de- 175 velopment of the human race, physically, mentally and morally. The time is coming when physical perfection alone will not satisfy, when intellectual training alone will not be sufficient, but when the spiritual man will be considered and his welfare guarded. I believe that we are to build this per- manent peace, this permanent arbitration, not upon a plutocracy of wealth or upon an aristocracy of learning, but upon the democracy of the heart, We shall then arraign every evil at the bar of the public conscience, for the most potent force of which man has personal knowledge is the con- science. That conscience can be awakened, and, when awakened, its gentle promptings are more imperative than statute laws, and the invisible barriers which it builds around us are stronger than prison walls. Qflpplausej ' , It is to this conscience that nations to-day appeal when they appear before The Hague trim bunal. One of the members of that tribunal told me that he was interested to note that the great nations that are represented there by counsel spend their time, not in discussing their pe- cuniary loss or gain, but in defending their honor. It is impossible to overestimate the influence of this appeal to conscience. As has been Well said to-night by China's distinguished Ambas- sador, the suggestion of this Peace Conference presented by the Emperor of Russia was not a new discovery, it simply gave expression to a sentiment that had been growing in the hC31'tS Of people all over the world. And this appeal to conscience must be made in this country as Well as in our international relations. We complam 11O'C 176 at the great development of the last century, We complain rather that the moral sense has not kept pace With industrial expansion. We are, as it Were, trying to guide. a great ship With the appa- ratus that Was scarcely sufficient for a smaller one. It is like equipping the Celtic With the rudder made for the H ali-M 0014. It is necessary that the moral sense shall be addressed, and When my friend here CMr. Beckj mentions the Labor Grganization as a menace, I feel like suggesting another danger, more menacing, I think, than any organization of men who are earning their bread in the sweat of the brow. I I refer to the conscienceless organizations of capital that plunder stockholders and patrons, and defy the law. Cflpplausej More dangerous, too, than any labor organization is they use of money in elections, money that has debauched our politics and made the purchase of votes- com- mon upon the street. Men sell franchises and legislate for the great corporation. QApplcmse.j The use of money in elections is, to . my mind, a far greater menace to this country than anything that comes from the organization of laboring men. QApplaif,se.j And what is the remedy for labor troubles? The same e remedy that We are to em- ploy in international politics. It is not to iight among ourselves, it is not , to abuse each other, it is to appeal to the conscience of 'thepeople-the most potent force, I repeat, of 'Which We have knowledge. I Mpplausej I . if I I saw at Rome the great Colosseum, and I re- called the time When the Christian martyrs were dragged into the arena and devoured by the Wild beasts. We are told that, .When they entered the 177 arena, they assembled in the c hands to heaven, and prayed and sang until life was extinct. How helpless they appeared! HOW irresistible seemed the forces arrayed against them! And yet those people, upon their bended knees, in- voked a power stronger than the legions of Rome, and it was only a few decades before their prayers were answered, and their doctrine of love over- whelmed the doctrine of force that had con- signed them to their death. QLong and loud applausej , u I found in Russia a peasant philosopherpreach- ing the gospel of love. He lives in a land where they have almost a million soldiers. They do not allow some of his articles to be publishedg they will banish people for circulating themg they stop at the border those who attempt to carry 'them printed into the countryg and yet the doctrine of that apostle of love has so touched the hearts of the people of the world that, while they may punish the people who circulate what he says, they do not lay their hands upon the man himself. What does it mean? It means just wha.t has been said by Carlyle, that thought is stronger than artillery parks, and that' back of every great thought is love. I believe that this movement to substitute reason for force in the settlement of differences between nations rests upon love, upon an all-pervading love, upon a love that must 1171 the end triumph. If we build in this country, We must build upon that foundation. If you ask me if there is any doctrine that will bring pefwe 111 this country, I reply that it is the doctrine, T11011 shalt love thy neighbor as thyself," and that that is the only peace-bringing doctrine- u fG7'eat af' entre, raised their 2 I 5 R F 57? n-'f' J I ,.

I came here to speak of peace, international peace, the peace that will bring together the na- tions of the earth, a peace that will give us the substitution of reason and right for for-ee and might. But I am willing to apply that doctrine to my own country, and I am willing to apply it to every question. You, who boast of your descent from the brave Dutch, you, who boast that in your veins is the blood of a noble ancestry, I apf -peal to you to meet these questions with the heroism that your ancestors displayed. If they were willing to die for their rights, are you not will- ing to respect the rights of others as well as to defend your rights? There is something that is greater than dying for one's own rights. That is great, but I am looking for the time When there will be something greater yet, a civilization be- yond any that we have yet seen, a civilization in which the greatest citizen will be not the man who will die in defence of his own rights, but the :man who will die rather than trespass upon the rights of another. CGreat applausej Upon this foundation only can we build peafle, peace among citizens and peace among natiO1'1S. Peace must rest on love, and every queS13iO11 that affects us must be decided not by the way it af- fects the pocketbook, but as it is determined by the conscience--that prompter Whiflh We all have With us if .we will but listen to it.

You thought that those who talked as I talked were enemies of yours, we were not. You thought we Wanted to injure you, we did not. You thought that we were radical, we were not, we were conservative, we were not ad- vocating retaliationg we were simply asking that our institutions be built on justice. Beware of those who come afterward-of the radicals who will not be content to stop a wrong, but Will want to go back and get revenge for what has been done. I appeal to you to meet these questions, and if you love peace, do not love it in Holland only, love it in America. If you love peace, seek the foundation upon which it rests. You will find that when the Nazarene's coming was announced to the Shep- herds who kept their flocks by night, it was " Peace on earth, good will to men." How can you have peace without good will toward men? I appeal to you to consider the true foundation for peace, here and everywhere, and you will find in the recognition of the rights of your fellows as higher happiness and a greater satisfaction than can be found in a shortsighted selfishness that trespasses upon the rights of another, whether that other person be a merchant or a laboring man.

HE presence of Mr Bryan as the last B speaker at the banquet, and the apparent Z x ' , ' g . . Q responsiveness of part of his speech to certain pungent remarks made by Mr. Beck, who immediately preceded him, afforded cause or op- portunity for comment by many of the newspapers of the neighborhood and by one from far-off Batavia, here quoted in the original Dutch. The New York Tribune Writes:- BRYAN AND BECK CLASH-FORGETS PEACE TEXT. Holland Society Hails Roosevelt as Second Stuy- vesant. Q , y ' , S William' JQ Bryan cut loose from his set speech on 'Peace " last night at the Holland Society din- ner at the Waldorf-Astoria, and in reply to a vig- orous attack made by ex-Assistant Attorney General james M. Beck, of Philadelphia, against the menacing and dangerous attitude of labor leaders and labor organizations, replied in a most dramatic and sensational manner, denouncing the heads of stock-Watering concerns and men Who use money in elections to corrupt the voters. It all came at the last of the speaking, after Mr. Bryan had devoted, himself for half an hour to peace principles as exempliiied by the establish- ment of the Peace Tribunal at The Hague. Then, as his hearers began to Wonder if he would let Mr. Beck's challenge go unnoticed, Mr. ,Bryan turned 182 Q ,, .Ni 'Q "1 .. I e-1.

Greater than any danger that can come from organized labor is the stock-jobbing and stock-watered organizations that plunder the people and defy the laws of the land. CApplause.j g H "We cannot bring peace by attacking labor organizations. Give labor organizations .credit for what they have done for America and American citizenship. They have elevated that citizenship." Raising his voice to its maximum of vibrancy, the speaker turned to the specially invited guests and said: ' , "A man who is fit to die for his country ought to be permitted to live for it." Instantly there was a thunder of applause by men who sprang to their feet and cheered and waved handkerchiefs. Not every one got cup. There were many who sat with closely shut jaws and red faces, and who looked defiance at the speaker, just as if they would like to have a chance to say something themselves. "Why not give these men the protection' that justice demands? " continued Mr. Bryan. "Why not deal with them as brethren? Go and see their children in the factories. Children dwarfed in mind and soul. And yet these children are made in the image of God, just as your children are, and you must love them, just as you love your own children." CGreat appl-RUSS, and CUSS of " That's right! "D j , Here Mr. Bryan paused and made as if about to stop speaking. Immediately there were cries for him to go on. 184 "I did n't have much chance to see you in the last campaign," said he. "You thought we were radical. We were not. We simply asked for that which we thought to be right. Beware the radi- cals who come after us--the men who will not be content to stop the wrong, but who will demand that you go back and restore the wrong. " . This ended Mr. Bryan's apparently unpremedi- tated outburst--an outburst doubtless prompted by Mr. Beck's brilliant arraignment of what he deemed to be an overreaching and wicked spirit of organized labor. But for Mr. Beck's positiveness and for Mr. Bryan's rhetorical pugnacity, the palm of adding the greatest degree of spice to the speaking pro- gramme would have rested with the Rev. Dr. George C. Lorimer, of the Fifth Avenue Baptist Church, whose toast was "Holland-Our Ally in the Revolution. " The clergyman gave the descendants of the dike--builders a shaking-up by eulogizing Presi- dent Roosevelt,--a second Peter Stuyvesant, 'he called him,-and warning Wall Street to be wise in their day and generation and stop the warfare on him. It was all said in a good-fellowship vein' and with consideration for the amenities, but, after all, it was a significant and daring admonition. w It comments editorially as follows: TVVO PRoPHETs. Mr. Bryan and Mr. Beck both spoke the trnth at the Holland Society dinner, and both spoke it im- pressively. Each dealt with one side ofa great evil threatening the perpetnity of American institutions. The apparent antagonism between them is only .the antagonism of emphasis. - p . . 185 We age bglad tlfiat M r. Beck made his eloquent plea for free a or an individual liberty against the labor oligarchy which will not let even the dead be bwied ve frequently spoken without the union label. We 'ha of the tyrannyof the boycott and the closed. shop, which ought to be utterly unendurable to ree s respecting American citizens.. We are glad: tedbc, that Mr. Bryan spoke of the corresponding tyranny of the great corporations that plunder the people, corrupt the citizenship, and defy the laws of the land. I t is especially worth while for such an audience to hear this, for the abuses of trusts do rnore to rnake honest wage-earners tolerant -of the abuses of labor unions than all the walking delegates and derna- gogues under heaven. , A I t would be well likewise if those who focus. their attention so exclusively on the abuses of trusts could hear with their spiritual ears the truths which M r. Beck declared. I f each could listen to the other side with open rnind, thousands who are now bound by prejudices of occupation and condition rnight be brought to co-operate for the preservation of true, historic American liberty. p g The New York Arnerican, formerly the New York ffournal, says : Labor Assailed at Banquet by I. M. Beck-Former Assistant U. S. Attorney-General Qnee1'S at Unions and Talks of Slavishness to LabO1' S Oligarchy. " More than usually distinguished was the assileiiii- hlage last night at the annual dinner of the f . tri - land Society, held in the Astor GallefY 0 e 186 Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. The eloquence of the ora- at the function, moreover, attained a rare tory standard of brilliancy. Last and principal orator of the banquet was William Jennings H Bryan, whose subject was " Peace. " On entering the magnificent dining salon' the Nebraskanwas given a cordial reception. No more spontaneous or louder storm of plaudits, no more enthusiastic waving of handkerchiefs and napkins were ever heard or seen in the big room where so many great dinners have been held. But the sensational speech of the evening was supplied by james M. Beck, formerly Assistant Attorney-General of the United States, and now prominent at the bar as an attorney for the trusts. Speaking under the title of " Our Hero Ances- tors, " Mr. Beck so developed the address that it turned into an attack on labor. While deploring the thought that there had come a time of struggle between the " plain people and organized wealth, " the trust lawyer scored labor organizations and denounced what he termed the e' 'tyranny of the boycott." . . . T The N ew York I-Ieralal prints the following, ac- companied by a sketch of Mr. Bryan speaking from his place at the guests' table: Hollanders Fly Dove of Peace-Society, at Annual Dinner, Hears Orators in Pleas for an End of Wars in All the Earth+Chinese Minister and Bryan Speak-Former Eulogizes Tsar and Latter .would Listen to " Still Small Voice" .

President Roosevelt, a member of the Society sent a letter expressive of his regret that he could not be with his "fellow Dutchmen "g and in nearly every speech Mr. Roosevelt was referred to as a magnificent specimen of the sturdy Holland fibre that made New York and had not weakened with the coming of wealth and prosperity. A ' MRS. BRYAN THERE. The large banquet room was crowded, 'with a good attendance of women in the boxes. Mr. Bryan was the chief figure at the principal table, and Mrs. Bryan, with a group of friends, occupied the large box directly opposite her husband. With her were Mrs. Augustus Van Wyck, Mrs. Charles A. Towne, Mrs. James W.. Usborne and Miss Os- borne, Mrs. John W. Cox, Mrs. O. jf. Smith, and Mrs. john H. Girdner .... , r The I insurance Press calls special attention to the .new Dutch historian OD mentioned in the address of President Banta. The Commercial Advertiser says' in an editorial: The present is clearly Mr. Bryan's 'K hour Of glorious life." He has the centre of the Demo- cratic political stage, and the public must concen- trate its attention upon him whether it wishes to or not. Something happens daily to 11016 111m 11"- the centre of interest, and it is quite amusing to 188' see the panting efforts of the eastern Democratic editors to keep up with the procession of rapidly succeeding developments. Yesterday was a par- ticularlv active day, ending with a great stroke of luck for him in the evening, when a careless speaker at the Holland Society banquet gave him an opening for precisely the sort of exhibition that is dearest to him-that is, of passionate devotion to the cause of labor. His outburst was eminently characteristic, in the tone and form of his famous "cross of gold" speech. . . . That his peculiar style of oratory has power over the minds of his hearers was shown last evening, when an audience of more or less stolid Dutch descendants, hard-headed citizens of the city of New York, went off their heads in a Whirl- wind of cheers over the following utterance: "A man who is fit to die for his country ought to be permitted to live for it!" Why should anybody in full possession of normal mental faculties rise and yell over that sentiment? Who ' 'deniges of it?" as Sairey Gamp would say. Mr. Bryan said it in connection with the "oppression of labor," but it would have had far more pertinency had he said it of the conduct of his party toward the nine millions of negro citizens of the republic. They are the only men in this country to whom it applies. The Brooklyn Eagle's editorial contains this : Ex-Assistant Attomey-General Beck made an address before the Holland Society in New York last night, in which he said not one word against the right of men to organize their labor interests, 189' but insisted that the recognition of their rights need not and does not justify them in resisting or resenting the equal rights of other men who may prefer independently to contract for their Own labor on their own terms. Nothing which My, Beck said made against the legal rights of union- ism, but something which he said did favor the legal rights of workingmen who prefer to be inde- pendent of organizations. Mr. Bryan was there, and he added to his pre- pared speech an impromptu outbreak against things which Mr. Beck did not say, but which Mr. Bryan misunderstood. ' , , We have no criticism-though others may have -to make of Mr. Theodore M, Banta for inviting Mr. Bryan to speak at the dinner .... 'T Mr, Banta has done a public service which he possibly did not intend .... A f The Boston H emld also quotes the latter part of the Eagle's opinion as valuable. The Philadelphia Press gives nearly' two col- umns to the report and comments of its regular correspondent, with head-lines and extracts as follow : Bryan's Reception Not Enthusiastic-New Yorkers Studied Him Closely at the Banquet- of the Holland Society, but were Disappointed- First Appearance before Representative Men -Society Represents Best and Most Iniiu- ential Class in' New York, but They do NO'U Find Bryan a Deeply Intellectual Man--M12 Beck's Masterly Address in Startling Contrast 191 a OVG13 8, majority of these citiz ' their own fortune. They liailes ildiggrjtgdeihi Dutch power of thrift, caution combined with courage, and to their inspiration we of New York City to-day owe much of what is best in it Colonel Bryan must have observed that there was no .pressure to meet him, that men did not gather impetuously around him, and that there were none of those .formal tributes to leadership and authority of which he has had so many when appearing publicly and in a political relation. In fact, the President of the Society, Mr. Banta seemed .called upon to urge, one or another of the more distinguished members of this Society to come and be presented to Colonel Bryan. Of all that were present, a majority probably did not meet him personally, and there may have been, in fact, no purpose on thepart of the trustees of the Society that there should be anything , like a reception. C l With no little cunning, those who arranged the programme for this feast placed Colonel Bryan's name at the end of the list of speakers, thereby making it certain that not any would leave the banquet hall, no matter how prolix those who preceded him in responding to toasts were, until the end .... , Mr. Beck's address was brief, but was, in a cer- tain indefmable but yet very impressive distinc- tion, probably the best that he has made since he retired from the office of Assistant Attorney+Gen- eral at Washington and came to New York to practise law. i e . judge Van Wyck, once the Democracy's candi- date for Governor, was so charmed by it, perhaps more by the manner, the elocution, the rhetoric, than by the thought, although' that pleased the Judge greatly, that he spoke with enthusiasm of the address afterward. It seemed to be the fine flower of cultivated eloquence, and the Dutch and ' if .Et 1' D". 1 U .VJ iff , ,X ' J . -D-nf3 inxl 'wx -.wa F M 192 their descendants were always lovers of the spoken word when well Spoken. Furthermore, Mr. Beck seemed to be Wholly at home in that company, to be so sure for hirnself that it was not necessary to assume any attitudes or anv self-conscious mannerisms that he might persuade others that he was properly in that place. llfhether he deliberately purposed tempting Colonel Bryan. or whether the challenge that he gave was a sudden inspiration, the effect of it and the manner in which it was done were very im- pressive and led to most interesting results. If it were a challenge to Colonel Bryan the challenge was accepted. Colonel Bryan had prepared, evi- dently with some care, a wholly non-partisan address, based chiefly upon some thoughts that seemed to have been inspired by his visit to Europe .... Mr. Beck had said no more than this, that if there is to be peace it must be no divided or par- tial peace, but must include all elements of so- ciety, and that at present the chief disturbing factor, since it imperils the very liberty which is synonymous, or should be, with the American form of govemment, is the dogma of many of the labor unions, that no man has a right to work at any trade unless he is a member of the union. The sentiment was applauded. Many of those who heard it are citizens of New York who have done more for those who work for wages in this city than all who have theorized or made public addresses agitating the wrongs of the workingman. It was with his conventional and much reputed manner that Colonel Bryan interpolated a reply to this comment of Mr. Beck. He seemed to take Issue with him. There was the same intellectual T-TICRBTY. so apparent in much that Mr. Bryan SWS- when he is controversial. It can be sum- marized mto two words--" you 're another." It is I the art more perfectly possessed by Colonel Bryan than by any other in public life now of begging the question Mr Beck had made no assertion +hat there was no over capitalization of securities that there was no use of money in election that there was no legislation for the classes His own record was sufficient to show where he stood for it was Mr Beck s argument in the lottery cases and in the trust cases a year ago at St Louis which enabled to suppress injustice of this kind Colonel Bryan however became the Colonel Bryan of the political arena He answered a ques tion or an accusation that had not been put and did it with one of those plausible and persuading generalizations of which he is the master Then the members of the Holland Society saw Colonel Bryan as the great body of voters to wnorn he appealed have seen him but these Holland Society members, clear-headed, possessing much of the" Dutch imperturbability, saw farther than many of those who have supported 'Bryan were able to see. r C Colonel Bryan undoubtedly was pleased -at the invitation to appear before the Holland Society, for, as he said, he had never before had any. oppor- tunity to speak to a representative body in New York of that kind. He could not have been rea- sonably disappointed at his reception. It was all courteous, all kindly, but it was also thoroughly discriminating. y 93 the courts to define rigidly the power of legislation H The N ewayk N ewg gave up a column of space to what is described in its head-lines as: Bryan in Tilt with J, M. Beck-f-Nebraskan Stirs 'Holland 'Society Diners by III1P1'0mPt11 Dei fence of Labor-T he Hague Peace Movement. It also reported that "Mn Bryan furnished gil? Surprise of the dinner when he took up the c a - 13 T94 lenge of james M. BCCR. the Yolmg Wan Sffeet lavfrer, and treated the guests to a sensational sg:-cet-li on the labor question. . Mr. Bryan had prepared an academic speech on the effect of The Hague's Peace Tribunal, but Mr. Beck, who immediately preceded hun, by a, sharp attack on the methods of labor organizations, aroused him, and, digressing from the line of his speech, he made an impassioned defence of the laboring man, coupled with an attack on the trusts." . . . The Providence Bulletin gave a column to its account of the affair, emphasizing the ' ' Mirth and Good Cheer" and the "jovial Time," and par- ticularly noting the presence of Colonel Bryan and the Chinese Minister among the speakers. The St. Paul Dispatch gives half a column, and sees greatest importance in the presence and the eloquent address of the Chinese Minister. The Augusta fMe.J Yournal devotes nearly a column to the account, and makes the cordial re- ception of the Chinese Minister its leading feature, saying that " W. J. Bryan, Dr. G. C. Lorimer, and others speak." The Scranton Times and the Altoona Times, each in a half column, and the Nashville Banner in a quarter or less, give the most prominence to Mr. Bryan 's address. The Batavian News takes its account from the New York Sun, as follows: Extract from Bataviaasch Nieuwsblad, Vrijdag, 4 Maart, I904.

Zabriskie. , President Banta, in calling the meeting to order congratulated the members on the fact that thg past year had been in some respects the most successful for the Societyg that it had feceived an unusually large number of new membersg that 352,000 had been added to its invested fundsg and that the special meeting had brought in a num- ber of new members and made the Society better known to the older members. r p The minutes of the last annual meeting having been printed in the Year Book, it was unani- mously voted that reading them be dispensed with. T p The Secretary presented the following report, which was on motion received and ordered to be inserted in the Year Book. p A REPORT OF THE SECRETARY. The statement sent out with the notice of the annual meeting showed that a year ago the mem- bership was eight hundred and fifty-one. We have elected during the year forty-eight new mem- bers and reinstated one, making the total upon our rolls nine hundred. From that number we have dropped for non-payment of dues thirty-two. Those who have resigned number four. Those who have died are twenty-four, making the mem- bership at the date of the statement eight hundred and forty. Since that date five other members have died, still further reducing our raf1kS, and 2o8 it was remarkable that three of that number died upon one day. Our necrology for the past year includes three of the founders of the Society, Cornelius Van Brunt, George Van Wagenen and George West Van Siclen, our first Secretary, than whom no one was more enthusiastically devoted to the pro- gress of the Society. Two others on the list of the dead were among those elected at the second regular meeting which followed the foundation of the Society in june, 188 5, Selah Reeve Van Duzer and Peter Q. Eckerson. Albany con- tributed four to this mortuary roll and is the largest sufferer, among her dead being Thomas J. Van Alstyne, who was Vice-President for that county at the time of his death. g The report of the Treasurer, which also accom- panied the notice of this meeting, showed that our receipts from all sources, including our balance at the beginning of the year, made a total of 57674-34- Our disbursements took all of this amount except the sum of 3B387.26, which was carried over to the new year. Among Our large expenditures will be noticed the purchase of two bonds for 352,o8o, and the expense of an additional meeting to which our friends were invited and which cost us - 383810. This meeting took place December 1 5, 1903, and was attended by about four hundred members and guests, who were entertained with an illustrated lecture by our gifted fellow member, Prof. Dwight L- .E11T1G11d01'f, depicting a trip through Holland. This was followed by a collation, which seemed to impress our guests very favorably, and the result '209 of the meeting was manifest A in the number Of applications Which came up for action at the last meeting of the Trustees, when thirty-two new members were elected. A110 bursement Was for souvenirs at the time of the annual dinner in January, on Which occasion it was determined to send souvenirs to those mem- bers Who. could not attend as Well as to those who participated in that celebration. The ad- ditional expense was about 3400, and, if one may judge. from the sentiments expressed by those absent members who thus profited by the innova- tion, the Society has been strengthened and more firmly intrenched in the regard of its members than ever before. The die from which our badge is struck required repairs, which cost 378.7 5, and before distributing the type from which the Year Book Was printed, a number of smaller books, containing merely the By-laws and list of members ,I Were printed for distribution among those Who Were not entitled to receive the e Year Book, and for purposes of exchange with similar societies, at an expense of 584. I Our Year Book, as heretofore, is a large item in our expense account, but most deservedly so, since it Wins golden opinions everywhere and is more and more sought by libraries and other institutions for the valuable collections of genea- logical matter which it publishes and makes accessible, and because of the attractive and aristocratic appearance Which it presents The Nineteenth Anniversary Dinner WHS the largest ever given by the Society, and some say that it was the most successful. It may be con- fidently asserted that every member st-3Yed until 14 ther unusual dis- 2IO the last word was said and appeared to wish that the function might continue longer. Here are some of the opinions, evoked by the Year Book and the souvenir, which have been mentioned above. . A typical letter concerning the souvenir: NoR'rH BEND, OHIO, Feby. 8, 1904. HENRY L. BOGERT, Esq., Secretary Holland Society. Dear Sir .' It gives me great pleasure to acknowledge the rect. of the fac simile of the medal struck off by the order of the States General of the Netherlands, April 19, 1782, in Commemoration of the A Inde- pendence of the United States,-and more espe- cially do I regret my inability to be present at the Anniversary Banquet of the Society last month- of which the medal and its associations formed so interesting a feature. On each of these annual recurring Reunions of the Sons of Old Holland it has been my misfortune to be with you only in spirit-tho a bodily presence would have added to my enjoyment.

How- ever, in order that the d customs, which I understand have been established here, may prevail in 3,11 Othef things as Well as in the making of the report of -the Committee on Nominations, I Will read the report. During the past Week, and after this report had been transmitted by the Secretary to the members of the Society by mail, the Committee learned with regret that Mr. Coykendall would be unable to accept his nomination. I know that considerable influence was brought to bear upon the gentleman to reconsider the determination which he had announced not to accept the nomination, but he stated that it was irrevocable and that he could not reconsider it. Thereupon and at a very late day it became necessary for the Committee to come together and ,endeavor to make another nomination in place oflMr. Coyken- dall, That meeting of the Committee Was held on Saturday evening, because the final determination of Mr. Coykendall came to the Committee late in the Week. Thereupon the Committee selected the name of Dr. Vander Veer, of Albany County, for the position of President in place of Samuel D. Coykendall, and the Doctor signified his Willingness to accept the nomination. The Doctor' had already been named by the Committee as the V1CCTPfCS1d6Ht from Albany County, and in this 'connection let me say, as far as the selection of these gentlemen as 1 'A 3 .'t'i'lii'l ,J- M-?A..sa-: ' . , . 3 - ... ..,, I R-ja, :jg Ui 2' Lith- -.

Where the name remains the same, it remains so because there was no com- munication received from any of the gentlemen of the particular localities or counties. Dr. Vander Veer's name, I think, was sent in from Albany County as the gentleman to be named by the Com- mittee as Vice-President from Albany County. No other communication that I recall was received from that county. Having selected Dr. Vander Veer for President, the Committee, acting upon Dr. Vander Veerfs suggestion and nomination, has pre- sented the name of Robert C. Pruyn as Vice-Presi- dent for Albany County. To the Holland Society of New York: The Committee elected to make nominations for the offices to be filled at the annual meeting of the Society on April 6, 1904, respectfully reports as follows, the result of its first meeting: PRESIDENT: SAMUEL D.

PRUYN. Dated, April 2, IQO4. GARRET J. GARRETSON, A. K. VAN VLECK, JNO. H. STARIN, of Committee on Nominations. T See correction in minutes to John J. Voorhees, lf' - As Justice Garretson finished reading the report, a member of the Hudson County delegation called the attention of the meeting to an OVCI'S1ghtv' bY 218 which the name of John J. Voorhees was given as the nominee for Vice-President of that county to succeed himself, whereas it had been intended to name his son, John J. Voorhees, jr., for the office. There being no objection, the name of John J, Voorhees, Jr., was, on motion, substituted for that of his father upon the ballot reported, and the report of the Nominating Committee was received and the Committee discharged with thanks. The President then appointed as tellers Messrs. Clarence Storm and Charles H. Montanye and the meeting prepared to vote upon the candidates for the various offices to be filled for the ensuing year, but, as it appeared that there was no contesting candidate for any office, upon motion, Col. Vrooman was unanimously designated to cast one ballot for the candidates named in the report of the Nominat- ing Committee, as amended. The ballot was cast and the tellers reported the unanimous election of these candidates. THE PRESIDENT: You have heard the report of the tellers, and I declare that the ticket, as voted for, has been unanimously elected. I I regret that Dr. Vander Veer has not come down from Albany, that I might gladly transfer to him this position and the badge of office which I have worn with so much pride during this last year. If our Vice-President for New York, Mr. John L. Riker, will kindly step to the table I will hand to him the gavel. MR. RIKER fafter a few words with Mr. Bantaj: Owing to my being rather hard of hearing, I have persuaded our old President to occupy the chair this evening, if it is your pleasure. r P It was moved and seconded that- the retiring 2 I9 President occupy the chair during the remainder of the meeting. MT- Rikel' l3he1'CllPO11 put the motion and it was unanimously carried. THE PRESIDENT: The Secretary has a letter from Dr. Vander Veer, which he will now read. The Secretary then read the following letter: . 28 EAGLE STREET, ALBANY, N. Y. ' April 5, 1904. MY DEAR MR. BOGERT: . y I am not quite sure who of the Albany members will be down to attend the annual meeting on Wednesday the 6th inst. Regret it will not be possible for me to attend because of themeeting of our new board of regents on Thursday morning. I trust the suggestion of the name of Mr. Robert C. Pruyn for Vice-President of Albany will meet with your approval. Should you carry out your intention, as indicated, by Sunday's telephone message, I will guarantee a large attendance from Albany, the Mohawk and Schoharie Valleys, Kinderhook, Saratoga, and all the I adjoining Dutch towns, for the annual dinner in IQO5., I am certain all the members in this part of the State will appreciate the recognition and respond loyally. 'F 'lf 'k With kindest regards, believe me, , I . Sincerely yours, A. VANDER VEER. THE PRESIDENT: The Secretary has just handed to me - which I did not read until this moment--the " Urder of Business." I find that, after this letter, which he has read, he has "Ad- dress of the Retiring President." I do not thmk we have had ve much of a retiring Presldent TY . here to-night. I did not intend to make any remarks, except in reference to two gentlemen 221 Coykendall expended thousands of dollars upon it- Very few kn0W that, for with the modesty and diffidence which characterize him he did not proclaim it from the housetops, and, in fagt, I think it was never before publicly acknowledged. Dr. Vander Veer, our honored incoming Presi- dent, has presided at two of the noted banquets of the Holland Society,-the Albany branch of it. When the Dutch ship Van Speyk was- here in 1893, you recall, we gave the officers a banquet at the Waldorf g and then our Albany members invited them to come up to Albany, and they went, and the Albany men gave them a fine dinner at the Fort Grange Club, at which Dr. Vander Veer presided. The Queen of Holland made the Doctor Cas she also made President Beekmanj a Knight of the Order of Nassau, and he wears the badge to-day in honor of this' gracious recognition. Then, three or four years ago, when Theodore Roosevelt was Governor of this State, our Albany members gave a dinner to the Governor, our fellow member, and Dr. Vander Veer presided at that banquet. So he knows how to do it, and I am sure you will all reap the benefit of his ex- perience, knowledge and eloquence, in this year that is before us. MR. HASISROUCKZ Mr. Vice-President, will yOu please resume the chair for two or three minutes, while I offer a resolution? CMr. Riker assumes the chair while Mr. Has- brouck reacls :J Whereas, The Holland Society of New Vork has. for nzaiyg Years profited by the diligent and eiiective servgceiegcar fellow member, Theodore Melvin Banta, as its CC Yi 222 and has for the past year continued its successful career under his administration as President, now, therefore, be it Resolved, That The Holland Society of New York desires to express its appreciation of the services which, first as Secretary and later as President, have been rendered in such a conspicuously able and satisfactory manner by Mr, Banta, and the gratification which the Society's continued progress and prosperity have inspired among the members, and further Resolved, That the Secretary enter this resolution upon the records and forward a suitably engrossed copy to the retiring official. -5 MR. WARNER VAN NORDEN: In seconding this motion, I feel that I ought to say more than a single word. It is usual in organizations ,of this character, and it has also been so with us, to offer a resolution of this kind to the retiring Presi- dent, and it is perfectly proper and courteous to do so, but it is something more than a per- functory expression in this case. I think we will all agree that there has been no man in office in theHolland Society that has so faithfully served it as has Mr. Banta. Cflpplausej No one could possibly have given the time that he has to the affairs of the Society, or, if he had the time he might not have had the order of talent which has enabled him to serve the Society so successfully, and, even if we had the time and the order of talent, very few of us have the tact which would enable us to go through a career of many years as Secretary and finally President and yet be the most popular man in the Society., Cflpplausejy It is, therefore, with very great pleasure that I second this motion, and I am sure that every word I have said finds a ready echo in the heart of all present. QP1'0l0nged applausej ' 2 2 3 The resolution was then put by Vice-President Riker and was unanimously carried by a rising vote. MR. HoES: I see by the notice of this meeting that the libre-YY is HOW, or is to be, located in Nassau Street, I may be misinformed in regard to the proceedings of the Society, but I would likg to inquire about that a littleg possibly other members here don 't know that we have a valuable library, and the whereabouts of it, except by having seen the memorandum on the printed notice. ' THE PRESIDENT: The office of the Society has hitherto been at 348 Broadway, in order that it might be near at hand to the former Secretary. We have now elected Mr. Henry L. Bogert, whose office is at No. QQ Nassau Street. His oflice' will be the office of the Society, and the library will be removed after the first of May to No. 99 Nassau Street, in the Bennett Building. Perhaps I may be permitted to add one word--I wish I could more iittingly tell you how much I appreciate the kind Words which have been -spoken by Mr. Hasbrouck in the resolution which he has presented, and by Mr. Van Norden. My work in the Holland Society has been a labor of love. From the very beginning I have taken the very greatest interest in it, and there was nothing I could do that I was not delighted to do for the Society. It has done more for me, I may say, than I have done for it in the joy that has come to my own heart in seeing the Society grow, and in seeing Certain work which it has done accomplished, and I want to say to you that,-from the bottom of my heart, I appreciate these kindly words which YOU S fn 0'-3l':4g fi' 'ibhfsirffrvw sg 2 r . 55 2 ,x Q if Q ,. 0 224 have expressed this evening.

There is one 1 1 very great advantage in being on this Committee, are sure to come before the Society every you . . year, and I have some very interesting news for u now Whatever may be that of the future. It yo , . is a short message and I hope you Will be ready to adopt What the Committee proposes at the end When I tell you that 352,500 of the uncol- lected money is the contribution of the gentleman en so much to the Society, who has already giv Mr. Coykendall, I am sure that it is a goodasset. -THE HOLLAND SOCIETY OF NEW YORK. COMMITTEE ON STATUE TO WIILLIAM THE SILENTII Dr. AD. B. Sr. JOHN RuO0SA, Chairman, 20 East 30th Street. GEORGE M. VAN I-IoEsEN, 45 Broadway. SAMUEL D. COYKENDALL, Kingston, N. Y. ROBERT B. RoosEvEL'r, 57 Fifth Avenue. TUNIS G. BERGEN, 55 Liberty Street. JOHN R. VAN WORMER, 32 East 42d Street. WARNER VAN NORDEN, 751 Fifth Avenue, Treasurer. A April 4, 1904. To the Members of the Holland Society. Gentlemen : 5 5 The Committee on Statue to William the Silent would respectfully report that the amount now .in the hands of the Treasurer, Warner Van Nor- den,'Esq., is 35,753.41. There remain 355,690.00 uncollected. The Committee have made efforts in every manner that was thought feasible to them,-eby appeals to therP1-esidents of the various District Societies, and to individual members, for -further subscriptions, but their eiforts, have not 225 been attended with such success as to Wan-ant holding out the hopeof an early date for beginning the work of a memorial to the people who Hfst settled the State of New York. Twelve hundred iif d ll and ty o ars in subscriptions have turned out to be uncollectable, since those making the Sub- scriptions have died, and their executors do not consider themselves under obligations, or, for other reasons, do not feel disposed to pay them. The Committee has appealed, on this ground, to some of the large subscribers to pay in their subscriptions at this time. If this were done, 3 5,690.00 would be added to the sum now on hand, making an aggregate of S,BII,443.4I. This would make nearly one-third of what may be considered a conservative estimate of the sum needed to secure a proper statue. The present outlook is not en- tirely favorable for raising 340,000 for a statue to the man who, above all other men, led the Dutch in their ideas of religious and political toleration, which are gradually being accepted by the world. It is the unwavering belief of your Committee that there could be no more fitting commemoration of the establishment of this colony than with such a statue. American writers of renown and general acceptation have done much to give William the Silent his proper place in the world's history. It would be fitting indeed if here, on the banks of the river which floats the ships of the people whom he made free and independent and for whom he died, an American ,sculptor should recall his great presence to the millions who in this land above all others, see the fruits of h1S labors in a Government founded on the principles of religious and political freedom. n The Committee recommend that a continued effort be made to secure this end. 1 8 i A list of paid and unpaid subscriptlons 13 ' d d. appen e D. B. St. JOHN RooSA. 15 C227 NOW, Mr. President, before I sit down, I want to say that I had an interview with Mr. Shrady this morning, who has been selected by this SO- ciety to make the statue when the money shall be secured. Mr. Shrady is entirely willing to go on with I this work, first making the models and finally the pedestal, which is a great -thing, and take the chances for the ultimate erection of the statue. Perhaps we are not willing to take the chances, and therefore, until we get more money, we will not, but there are several things which have been held out to us which for the present have succeeded, and I am not at all sure but that the Committee appointed by the new President will succeed where we have failed. i For example, we 'believe that the .ladies of New York the Dutch women and the descendants of Dutch men and -women in New 'York' and Kings County may organize for the securing of the I 'money. You will all remember how many years it was that the Grant statue was in the air and not onthe earth, and it is not yet entirely finished, but we got it. I never knew that it was characteristic of a Dutch Committee to give up anything while they were living, and I do not propose to ask the next Committee,--I hope I may be excused from these annual appearances,-f-but I don 't propose to ask the next Committee to give it up, but I do propose to ask that a resolution be passed to-night adopt- ing the suggestion of his Honor Mayor Van Wyck, which will enable us to get the rest of this money. ' Now, Mr. Shrady would be very glad 'CO make 3 .model of his statue--a small model-at an expense of about 3200, and let that be exhibited t0 the Trustees and the Committee, and then, if satis- 6 229 trees by the roadside or removed from the public gaze, therefore I 'ask you to give up the idea of any other kind of statue, but to Work on for this one of William the Silent. MR. ELSWORTH: .I move you, Sir, that the Trustees of the Society be authorized to expend not to exceed 35200 of the Society's funds for the composition of a model of the statue' of William the Silent. The motion was seconded and carried unani- mously. z A DR. RoosA: Let me thank the Society in be- half of the Committee. Such faith and such pluck are Worthy of the Dutch. THE PRESIDENT! I don't thinkit requires any Word from the Chairman to thank the Society. The Doctor has already 'expressed himself on that subject. R I A MEMBER: Some of you may have seen over in the corner a picture. Let me say, in reference to that, that it was sent here by a Committee of the Hudson Tri-Centennial Association. Injune of Igor, the Holland Society, by its Trustees, ap- pointed a Committee to have a tri-centennial celebration of the discovery of the Hudson River by Hendrick Hudson. It is a little curious, We talk of putting up la statue of William the Silent who was not a Dutchman, and here is Hendrick Hudson Who Was an Englishman. But We ap- pointed a Committee, composed of Mr. Robert Roosevelt and Mr. Van Norden, and others, to arouse interest in the question. I think the Committee did nothing special With reference to it. In a little While, another Committee WGS appointed called the Hudson T ri-Centennial As- 2 31 Sufqh importance, the . Hudson Tri-centennial As- S0C13l3101'1 has recommended to the Authorities of the CRY Uf New Y01'k, the construction of ana artistic bridge across. the Spuyten Duyvil at Inwood Heights. This bridge would, in coniunc. tion with the Riverside Drive and Boulevard Lafayette, be a connecting link in extending the superb boulevard of the Hudson tothe Yonkers line, constituting a driveway unmatched in the W01-1d, If this structure be built by the City, our public- spirited citizens may be relied upon to provide the sculpture and decorative' features necessary for its commemorative character. ' The Tri-Centennial Association bespeaks the hearty interest and cordial co-operation of all citizens in furthering the project of a " Hudson Memorial Bridge," with a view to its completion for an appropriate celebration of that eventful day of September, 1609, when Hudson on the H alf M oon first sailed up 'the noble river now bear- ing his name, and laid .the foundation for the Imperial City of New York. -r THE HUDSON TRLCENTENNIAL Assoc1Ar1oN.. The following ,amendment to the Constitution was proposed by Mr. Clarence Storm: Art. VI., Sec. 4 of Constitution. After the words, " The annual subscription fee, five dollars, payable in advance on the first day of lfebruary in each year, " add, " The payment at onetime of One hundred Dollars shall henceforth exempt the mernf bers so paying from the payment of annual dues.

His home life was exemplary and his death left many sad hearts. , 1 H 1 WILLIAM MEADON VAN ANTWERP, a member of the Holland'Society since October 25, 1886, and one of Albany's representative men, died at his home, 162 Washington Avenue, Albany, April 9, IQOS. 5 He was born in that city January 1, 1825. He attended a private school until the death of his father necessitated his withdrawal, and so began his business career at eleven years of age, as errand boy with the firm of Lasdell 85 Fassett.. He was nextassociated with John Schuyler in the grocery business and on Mr. Schuyler's death 235 formed a partnership with the late Thomas D Hawkins 1n 1852 in the wholesal .

He was a trustee of the Albany Savings Bank, a director of the Commerce Insurance Company and one of the original members of the Committee of Thirteen. His ancestors came to this country in I62I and settled in Schenectady. Very soon thereafter his branch of the family came to Albany, and soon the name of Van Antwerp became prom- inent in social and financial circles. His wife, who was Susanna Irwin, died about four years ago. He is survived by his only son, Thomas I. Van Antwerp, who is vice-president and treasurer of the Union Trust Company, and seven daugh- ters, Mrs. James Martin, Mrs. Theodore Water- man, Mrs. Edmund Huyck, Mrs. Clarence Stevens, Miss Gertrude Van Antwerp, and Miss Elsa Van Antwerp, all of Albany, and Mrs. M6ICCllSi Of Brooklyn. john H.

TOWNSEND LANSING, I " JASPER VAN WORMER, . H " E. A. GROESBECK, icommmee' " EDGAR C. LEONARD, j " The trustees of the Albany Savings bank enter upon its record this memorial of William M. Van Antwerp, who for twenty-two years has been a trustee of this bank. . " The death of William M. Van Antwerp takes from among us a long-time, loyal and greatly esteemed friend and associate. Cautious, conservative and conscientious in character, inflexible in integrity and honesty of purpose, outspoken in the courage of his convictions, he inspired confidence in all with whom he came in contact, and cre- ated in the public mind a like respect for every organiza- tion which came within his care and control. " In commercial affairs he raised himself to influence and aiiiuence, and impressed upon the business with which he was connected, a spirit of fair dealing and honest trade-a saving and salutary example to his associates. " In civic duties-in the work of the Committee of Thir- teen, for the regeneration of a debased political system and the protection of our people from the moral and material burdens which it imposed-no one gave time and attention more earnestly and unostentatiously than he. ' " In Christian effort and endeavor-the support of his church, the suppression of vice, the sustaining of works of charity, and the succor of the needy and the sick-his helpful hands were ever engaged. ' . "He leaves with us pleasant ,memories of a long and useful and upright life. , UF1'1l311d, and foe, position, power, possessions-all are left behind. Alone is each man born, alone he dies. Alone he receiyes the commendation for the good, alone the con- dpmnation ' for the wrong, which he has done. Virtues 8 One accompany the soul., Of whom shall it be said that their virtues attest lives better ,consecrated to that which 237 'the Lord Qdothj require of thee, t d ' .1 mercy and to walk humbly with tligy gogiiify and to love " IN MEMORIAM. " At a meeting of the directors of the Commerce I nsnr- ance Company, held April IOth, IQO3, the death of Mr. Van Antwerp was announced by the president and the following tribute of respect was adopted: , " The death of Mr. Van Antwerp removes another ofthe very few remaining original stockholders who in the year 1859 as public spirited and progressive citizens sub- scribed the incorporating papers that were requisite for the organization of the company. " For the past thirteen -years he has served as a director, and was always a most reliable member of this board in attendance at meetings or committee work. . " He had withdrawn from active business many years ago, but his connection with several enterprises and his temperament caused him to keep interested in public affairs, and he was ever ready with good deeds to help humanity and better its condition. " We sympathize very sincerely 'with his children in their bereavement and direct that the customary mourn- ing emblems be placed in our rooms, and that the oflice be closed at the time of funeral, also that this minute be entered in full on the records and a copy published.

JENISON, Vice-Preszdenti' From The Landmarks of Albany onnty are taken the following items concerning his ancestry: ,,"The paternal immigrant, Daniel Janse Van A11tWC1'P, of Holland, married a daughter of Simon Qroot and Settled in Beverwyck in 1661. He was a proprietory settler of Schenectady, where several of his children were killed 05 taken as prisoners to Montreal, when that town was burne by the French and Indians. He was a fur trader, and a member of the Dutch Reformed Church, giving 011 .llama 23, 1715, the land on which the Reformed Church of Sc e- nectad now stands. . . "Mg, Van Antwerp's grandfather, Damel Lewli Van Antwerp, C1771-I832,D of Schenectady, later of Aba11Y: 238 was a member of the Constitutional Convention of I8OI, a member of the legislature for Saratoga in 1808-1810, and District Attorney for the counties of Albany, Schenectady, Saratoga, Montgomery and Schoharie, being appointed March 9, 1811, by Gov. Daniel D. Tompkins. . Q " When Albany was erected into a separate district, April 21, 1818, he was reappointed by Gov. DeWitt Clinton, his commission in each case being unlimited, but continuous during the pleasure of the Governor and Council. He was Brigade Quartermaster in the War of 1812, a member of the legislature for Schenectady in 1818, and was judge of the Court of justices in 1820. " His son, William Van Antwerp, 1799-1829, was a prominent lawyer in Albany, married Sarah Meadon and had 'four children, jlohn Henry, William Meadon, Daniel Lewis, and a daughter, deceased." A friend, since deceased, Writes asfollows: "All of these three brothers were members of the Hol- land Society, and john Henry and Daniel Lewis still survive. , "These boys developed into industrious, capable .and successful business men, truthful, honest and exemplars of good citizenship, each being an active and earnest worker in all the enterprises of the church of which he was a member 3-john Henry, as a Unitarian, William Meadon and Daniel Lewis as Baptists. William Meadon's regard for the 'sacredness of the Sabbath and its proper observ- ance, restricting all secular occupations, pursuits, games and parades, was intense, and the sorrowof his later years was the evident trend in thought' and conduct of the people, as a whole, -in the reverse directiong opening wide the gates to frivolous and boisterous pastimes, the legiti- mate issue of what he esteemed such wanton disregard of God's Day. . . 2 . Q .. " The Calvary Baptist Church of Albany, in the death of Bro. Van Antwerp, have sustained a most serious loss, a loss that will not be compensated in many years by new admissions to its membership." C GEORGEWEST VAN SICLEN, to whose tireless energy, unfaltering enthusiasm and effective labors the Holland Society owes its existence and success, far more than to any other, died at his home, CO1fnWall-on-the-Hudson, on Sunday, April 19, 1903, in his sixty-third year. He had been in ,2 39 poor health all throu h .the :wir 4 . 1 ' the most pressing gusiness aginigg tg Saturday evening apparently as well as usual be t shortly before midnight called for his son , BE fore the son could reach the bedside his katheg was dead. He had lived an active life his chosen profession, the law, and his terrri of prac- tice covered thirty-six years.' His views were broad and his mind open, and it was no obstacle to him that a precedent was lacking. S' He was one of those who organized the Title Guarantee and Trust Company of New York and took a lead- ing part in founding the' Holland Society, of which he was secretary and treasurer for the first year of its existence. T The duties of a fiscal oilicer were separated and placed elsewhere, when the growth of the Society had made them too arduous to be retained by him, but he continued to act as secre- tary until May 19, 1891, and was a trustee until April 6, 1892. The Year Book took form and achieved success under his care and diligence, and those issued before 1892 form his monument in the libraries of all early members. The trip of the Society to ,Holland is still the subject of agreeable reminiscence among those who- par- ticipated and excites the envy of those who were unable to adopt Mr. Van Siclen's suggestion and visit the Fatherland. During the English-Boer war he collected thousands of dollars for the Boers, and he suffered 'no opportunity tO QSC-HPS, duflflg that trying period, in which he might, by VOICC and pen, set forth the righteousness of the Boer cause.

His father was the great-grandson of Abraham Hasbrouck, and his mother was the great-great- granddaughter of Jan Hasbrouck, two brothers, who came to America in 167 5 and 1672, respec- tively, and were among the twelve patentees and original settlers of New Paltz in 1677, They were also among the Huguenots who Hed from relig- ious intolerance and persecution in France. Dr. Hasbrouck's ancestors were men of wealth and prominence, holding many offices of public trust, both civil and military, in Colonial times and the Revolutionary period. He was the fourth of a family of eight children.

In politics he was a consistent and unvaryirlg Republican, having voted for john C. Fremont, and remained loyal to this party through all his life. He was a strong partisan, although he never sought or held political office. In 1848 he married Margaret Anne Manning, a descendant- of Hugo Freer, one of the twelve New Paltz patentees, and of Baltus Van Kleeck, the original settler of Poughkeepsie. She died in 1889. Dr. Hasbrouck left seven children: ex-Postmaster Frank Hasbrouck, Captain Alfred Hasbrouck, jr., U.S.A., Manning Hasbrouck, Louis T. Hasbrouck, Mrs. Jane H.

While very" outspoken in demm- Ciatlon of. everything which appeared insincere or hypocritical, yet he was unswervingly loyal to those whom he deemed honorable and true, re- gardless of station or wealth. A prominent member writesz, " He was pecu- liarly near to me in many ways, for he was a noble fellow, thoroughly reliable, interested in his work and always kept his promises." . Mr. Vosburgh had lived in Albany all his life, his father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. Isaac W. Vos- burgh, being 'among that city's oldest residents. He was educated at the Boys' Academy and grad- uated in the class of '76, receiving one of the medals for proficiency in class work, and entered the class of 1880 in Union College. Shortly after graduation he went into business with his brother, Fletcher Vosburgh, as agents of the various steam- ship companies, succeeding john E. McElroy. Upon the death of his brother, Mr.' Yosburgh carried on the business successfully until impaired health compelled him to retire about two years ago.

Dr. ZAREMBA W. WALDRON, a member of the Society since October IO, 1895, died in Jackson, Mich., October 1, IQO 3. He was a descendant of William W. Waldron, who was born in Holland, 1647, and came to this country between that date and 1675, for on the latter date we find his son, Pieter, born at Harlem. After this the family moved to Albany, where they remained. about three-quarters of a century, when they emigrated to Half -Moon, Saratoga County, and from there Dr. Waldron moved to Jackson, Mich., where he achieved an enviable reputation. CORNELIUS VAN BRUNT Cchristened Cornelius Rutgers, but never using the middle namej, was one of the original members of the Holland So- ciety, March 14, 1885. He died at his residence in New York City, 319 East 57th Street, October 1, IQO 3, after a painful illness of nine weeks, nearly seventy-six years old. i He was sixth in a line of direct descent from the first Cornelis Rutgerz, a son of the common an- cestor of the family, Rutgert Joosten, who was an emigrant from the Netherlands and settled on Long Island in 1653. The family later' owned large tracts of land at New Utrecht, Gowanus, Gravesend, etc., and were mostly agriculturists. His father, Cornelis, Qborn March 18, 1795, died September 3, I828,D entered mercantile life in New York City with a well-known shipping firm of that day, and not long after his marriage in I82O to a distant cousin, CSarah, daughter of Theodorus Van Norden and Alletta Langdonj the young husband WQS Obhged by his firm to sail as supercargo to Lima. This was not his first visit to .South Amer- ica, but proved to be his last, as he contracted a fever which clung to him, and of which he died f 1 247 shortly after reaching his home September 3, 8 8 1 2 , and before his only child, born October 5, 1827, during his absence, at his grandfather Van Norden's house in Leonard Street, had completed his first year. A few years later the Widow removed with her t F' son o ishkill village, Where in 1835 she married judge Joseph I. Jackson, of the Supreme Court of Dutchess County, and here at the village school, and later with some private tuition Mr Van Bru , , t nt received his education and prepared to enter Union College. He passed the examinations, but at this juncture his step-father decided against college training for him and apprenticed the lad to the Matteavvan Machine Works.

He perfected the -Holtz Electrical Machine, building one for Vassar College and one for Stevens Institute. But, although very inventive, he never would allow his contrivances to be patented. . He visited Florida and made large collections of the birds of that State, Cthen very much more abundant than now,D and also secured a number of ine skeletons and skins of alligators, all of which he presented to Vassar College. He, of-ten spoke of the pleasure this collecting trip gave him, and was very proud of the fact that of the several hun- dred bird-skins-many of them very minute- not one had been mutilated by careless shooting. ' In 1876 he was induced to enter the business world again to assist a friend-a fellow-apprentice at Matteawanf-and furnished a large part of the capital of a machinery company in New York City. This reinvestment of his capital marked a turning point in his hitherto successful financial career, and when he iinally retired from business in 1 894 he had lost the bulk of his fortune. During all of this busy life in the machine works of Matteawan, Fishkill Landing and New York City he -had always found time-for nature study. He was an enthusiastic and expert microscopist, and an-authority on some of -the lower orders of plant life, especially the diatomaceae. i r He was one of the founders of the American Microscopical Society, which was the first society of its kind in this country, and served as its treasurer -until his death. He was also for a considerable time the president of the New York Microscopical Society. - In late years, beginning about 1886, he became interested in photography and was one of the founders of the first amateur photographic society in New York, the Camera Club. General pho- 'Gqgraphy soon gave place' to special work, and, his tastes always turning towards botany, it 249 Eitigirally followed that floral photography bgcame pecia ty, and to h1m belongs the hono f th finest work ever done in ' , 'B r O e Oil-tiging its Originator' this line as well as that 1S eep interest in the succ ' , ment Of .the New York Botanicafsggildjitavglisgh at that time existed mostly in the hopes of, botan- 1S'CS, WHS the impelling cause of his first lecture on 'QT he Wild Flowers in and about New York City " given -early 1n the nineties before the Torrey Botanical Club, for he 'very truly surmised that the interest of the New York public would be aroused by seeing its own wild flowers, growing within its own city limits, thrown upon the screen in all the beauty of natural colors and often lovely environment, as in Bronx Park, the longed-for abode of the Botanical Garden. From that time until the close of the 'last season -June, 1 9o3 ,-he lectured frequently in New York, Brooklyn and elsewhere, though he was averse to accepting out-of-town invitations, partly be- cause of the additional exertion, but principally because his interests all lay in his native city. r r Thus floral photography came to be the latest branch of scientific work that he followed, and it was followed to the last-even after the beginning of his last illness-with an enthusiasm, a aeal, and a persevering industry almost incredible in a man of his years. 0 1 The results were o.f steadily increasing excel- lence,--some of the latest work being the best he had ever done. His love of microscopic effects led him to photograph his Horal subjects, when possible, in detail, and some of the recent en- largements of the minute parts or organs of plants are beautiful and instructive. A U He rarely strayed from the floral field, but 111 18 8- he made some wonderful enlargementsof 9 9 the silk worm and other mothS, 35 Well as ahselilis if fb t e hundred negatives showing t e 1 'e ?1iSi'f:OI?3ilQfO01:11' Common milk-weed. butterfly. Th1S 25o he called "The Birth of a Butterfly," and in it every phase from the egg to the worm, through the several transformations of larva and pupa to the fully expanded butterfly, was beautifully shown. Mr. Van Brunt was an enthusiastic sportsman, and until the summer of 1902 he had never failed to have at least one week of trout fishing in the Upper Beaverkill for more than fifty years. He was the founder and first president of a beau- tiful fishing preserve in the Ulster County Catskills, known as the Balsam Lake Club. For many years he had owned Balsam Lake and much of the land surrounding it, but, finding it impossible to pro- tect the property and preserve the wild beauty of the woods and stream, he organized the club above mentioned. He was a zealous champion for the preservation of our forests, and Watched the trees of the club and state preserves with a most jealous eye, never losing an opportunity to inveigh against the man who ruthlessly or ignorantly cut one down. He was also a member of the New York Acad- emy of Sciences, New York Botanical Garden, Qof which he was Honorary Floral Photographerj New Nork Microscopical Society, New York Hor- ticultural Society, Torrey Botanical Club, Amer- ican Association for the Advancement of Science, American Museum of Natural History, American Institute, Brooklyn Institute, Forestry Associa- tion, Camera Club, Holland Society, American Geographical Society, Union League Club, and several foreign organizations., . Of a genial, kindly disposition, always look- ing on the bright side ofthings, possessing a fund of delightful anecdote and information on natural history and allied subjects, he made a charming companion, but he was too much absorbed in his own. pursuits to have a liking for social inter- course 1n the usual sense of the word. He was a loyal friend, a most devoted son, and a model husband. e . 251 His funeral was at the Madison A D , . venue Re- fdclnlggd Churph and his remains were interred in , h hlfm Y P Ot. at Fishkill. 0 Sketches of his life, Wlt 15 Poftfalt, appeared in Toweya, Vol. HI., No. 12, for December IQOS and in The Ph t , graphic Times Bulletin: December IQOSIE 0 0 He leaves a Widow but no children.

He was born in 1822 and attended Rutgers Col- lege, from which he graduated in 1842, returning in 186 3 to occupy thechair of Greek until 1866. A call to be the fifth pastor of the First Reformed Church in Yonkers Was accepted and he Was installed November 9, 1866. Here he remained for thirty years, until his resignation, six years before his death. Although he had intended to spend the rest of his life in retirement, he con- tinued active labors in his chosen profession, act- ing as substitute for almost every Protestant minister in Yonkers and its neighborhood. and filling their pulpits With marked acceptability. On the Sunday before his death, when eighty-one years of age, he preached at both morningand evening services in the Westnlinster Presbyterian Church, ofliciated at a funeral in the afternoon, and took part in the Y.

Until his last illness liaegwas 32-tivelsf engaged in the legal profession and was known throughout the state for his legal attainments. At the age of thirteen he determined to acquire an' advanced education and became a student in the academy at Moravia. After a year in this academy and a further period at a select classical school he entered' the Hartwick Seminary and completed his preparation for Hamilton College, from which he graduated in 1848 with the degree of Bachelor of Arts, receiving the Master's degree in 1851. His standing in college was good, es- pecially in mathematics, and, in addition to the regular course, with a few others he took a private course in law under Theodore W. Dwight, sub- sequently the eminent head of the Columbia Law School. In 1848 he entered the oflice of Harris Sc Van Vorst and before the close of the year his diligence enabled him to pass ansatisfactory and successful examination for admission to the bar of the state. Until 1850 he continued as a student, after which he opened an office for himself, where he continued until 18 53, when he 106031116 3 Pafmef of Matthew McMahon, with whom he was assip- ciated for four years.

He was elected to membership in the Holland Society March IO, 1898, and at the an- nual meeting in IQOI Was made Vice-President for Albany County, which oflice he held at the time of his death. He was also a prominent Free Mason, having been Master of Mt. Vernon Lodge, No. 3, F. 8a A. M., in 1858, and a member of the Albany Institute, Fort Orange Club, Philip Livingston Chapter, Sons of the Revolution, a life member of the Y. M. C. A., and prominent in the Emanuel Baptist Church. Judge Van Alstyne had been three times married. .His first Wife was Sarah, daughter.of R. Clappg his second Wife was N. Louisa, daughter of Samuel S.

Van Alstyne, sixteen years of age, a son by his last Wife, who also survived him. The mayor of Albany ordered that Hags on the public buildings be placed at half-mast and the city hall bell tolled the years of his life. The mayor and heads of various departments attended the funeral, after adopting the following resolu- tions: " In the death of Thomas Jefferson Van Alstyne the city of Albany loses a worthy Christian citizen. His life was .a busy. one, fraught with many public and philanthropic activities. In public office, as county judge, representa- tive in Congress and mayor, he discharged his obligations to the body politic in a painstaking and conscientious manner.

Van Alstyne the strongest personality of the Albany County Bar Association has been removed.. My acquaintance with him dates back to the time when, after I began the prac- tice of law, I became located in an adjoining oflice where I had excellent opportunities to study his remarkable per- sonality, and up to the hour of his death our relations were always close and sometimes intimate. Strong mentally, strong morally and strong physically, there was no hypoc- risy in his nature and as time rolled on and I grew to understand him better I liked him more. A peculiarity in his nature which no doubt many of you have observed when we were assembled here on such sad occasions as these, was the tenderness with which he spoke in memory of those with whom he had had many conflictsin life. Of late years he has not been active in the practice of law, but his excellent record as a lawyer and judge are well known to all of us. He was warm in his friendships and would go far to serve them, as those who knew him best can testify. I-Ie was one of the few remaining practitioners who were here when I began my legal labors and it 1S Wlth an infinite feeling of sadness that I pay this impromptu tribute to his memory." The meeting then adopted the following TGSO' lutions: 1 " We, as members of the Albany county bar, haw assembled to mourn the loss of one of our number- he announcement of the profound sorrow we have heard t U 5 . death of Thomas J.

In March, 18 52, with his brother Jacob, he opened a. general store at Tuttletown. Soon afterward his brother lost his life in the H enry Clay disaster on the Hudson, and in a short time the Tuttletown store was sold, Mr. Schoonmaker moving to New- 261 burgh in the fall of 18 5 3.

"His departure is a sore loss not only to his family and kindred and to a large circle of sincere friends, but also to the Church he dearly loved, and to his pastor who had in him a devoted and loyal friend and helper. 'I have loved you, I have loved you,' were among the wordsthe pastor will not soon forget. " For the last two years nearly he was the superintendent of the Sunday School, and was thoroughly devoted to its every interest. "He had a large, 'warm heart, full of kindness and gen- tleness, and most generous in its impulses. "A valuable pastor's library of three hundred and fifty volumes belonging to the Church is one of many memorials of his wise and large beneficence. " Everything pertaining to the welfare of the Church and the world-wide progress of the kingdom had in him a sympathetic friend, and often a liberal helper. " He united with the Kinderhook Church, when he was a youth of eighteen, and though during absence for a few years he was a member and an official of the Yonkers Presbyterian Church, his heart was here, and hither he returned with a great content. " He was uniformly in his place, when circumstances per- mitted, in the Church service, the Sunday School and the teachers' and prayer meetings. Pain and breathlessness that made his steps slow and required rest by the way, did not keep him from the Lord's house. And now he 'dwells in the house of the Lord forever.' We miss him sorely.

THE most significant medal, from an historical point of view, which was ever struck in Holland, is the so-called "Beggars' Medal." It is the memorial of the very first steps of that march towards civil and religious liberty in which the men of the Netherlands, after heroic struggles, finally led the world. And, therefore, it is a most appro- priate token for us to wear, who have received in largest measure, in this New Republic, the benefits of the noble conflict of our Dutch forefathers. In Bizot's Medallic History of t e epu f , of honor is h R blic of Holland published at Amsterdam in 1690, the place " nin ." The following given to this famous Geuzenpen l g 287 288 description of its origin is translated from that Work, with a few additions from the accounts given by Prof. I. W. Kitchin, of Oxford. "In the year 1565, immediately after the decrees of the Council of Trent were promulgated, Philip II. determined to put them in force throughout his dominions. Accordingly, he now made a more vehement attack upon the reformers, and then it was, in 1566, that the Netherland nobles, led by Count Brederode, signed the famous 'Compromisef with which the open rebellion of the provinces begins. Margaret of Parma was Philip's regent in the Low Countries. Before her Brederode appeared with the Protest against the Inquisition and other innovations which the King proposed to introduce into Holland. He was accompanied by three hundred noblemen, who had bound themselves together for the preservation of the Liberties of the Provinces. The Duchess of Parma appeared to be much disturbed at the sight of such a multitude of noble remonstrants, but the Count of Barlemont, who stood beside her, begged her not to be alarmed, 'For,' said he, in French, 'they are only beggars' 1 "The next day, the 6th of April, 1566, as the confeder- ates were sitting together at dinner, and talking of a name for their new Party, they remembered Barlemont's sneer, and cried out, 'Vfifvent les Gueux! '-' Hurrah for the Beg- gars! ' When dinner was over, Brederode, having hung a beggar's wallet around his neck, filled a wooden bowl with wine and drank the health of the company, declaring that, for his part, he was ready to sacriice life, property, every- thing, in defence of his country's freedom. The room rang with applause,--' Hurrah for the Beggarsl' The cup was passed from hand to hand. Every man drank the same toast and made the same pledge of devotion. And thus it was that the name of the Gueux, or Beggars, which has become famous throughout Europe, had its origin at a social feast, for it often happens that the most important and serious affairs begin amid jests and laughter. "Soon afterward the men of the new Party appeared at Brussels, dressed in coarse gray cloth, with wooden cups at- tached to their belts, AND WITH THIS MEDAL HANGING ABOUT THEIR NECKS.H . 289 I One of these me the time of his assassination. H g a S The following is the description, translated by the irst ecre ary of the Society, Mr. Ge . W. V S' Loon's Nederlandsche Penwingenci an men, from Van "The nobles assembled several times in different places t0 find methods to protect the liberties of their count . TY from the perils which Irlenaced them from all sides. Those who showed themselves most zealous and most ardent upon these occasions were Henry of Brederodeg Louis of Nassau, brother of the Prince of Orange, Florent of Pal- lant, Count of Culemburgg and William, Count of Bergen. They pushed the affair so far that meetings were held,. first at Breda, and afterward at Hoogstraten. ' "At the latter place several discontented nobles pro- jected an alliance, which, going from hand to hand, was in a short time accepted and signed by more than four hun- dred persons, all of whom promised to be in Brussels on a certain day. To give greater aclat to this league, Henry of Brederode, as chief of the confederates, found it convenient to make his entry into that city on the 3d of April, A.D. 1566, accompanied by Count Louis of Nassau and many nobles, followed by a great number of servants. The fourth day of that month was employed in preparations and in awaiting the Counts of Bergen and of Culemburg. Al- though on the following day these lords had not yet arrived, the confederates did not delay in demanding an audience. lt was granted to them, and the Princess-Regent appointed the hour of noon to avoid the tumultuous concourse of the populace. . " The time named being near, Brederode and Count Louis were seen to leave the residence of Culemburg and to walk with a decent gravity toward the court, preceded by more than three hundred gentlemen, of whom they thCI11SC1VCS formed the last rank. When theY amlfed before me Duchess, Brederode spoke for all, and, havn1g.1il11ShfiCl 1115 harangue, he presented to Her Highness a petition signed in the name of all that illustrious troop. In th1s.Pet1t1?nf after having represented their obedience and their fidelity to the King, they declared that, notwithstandmg the hatred that their procedure would very likely draw upon them' 19 dals was worn by William of Oran e t 290 e service of the King, showing to I-Ier they would risk, in th ' Highness the dangerous condition of affairs, and warning her, if the protection of the Inquisition were continued, of the terrible consequences which they foresaw would shake the State to its foundations. They demanded, secondly, that the edict of the King relating to the Inquisition, and relating to religion in general, be reformed by the Assembly of the States-General, and that, while awaiting this, the execution of this edict should be suspended, as a protection against the sad evils of which it was already, and of Which it would be more and more, the fertile source. "The Regent, hiding as well as possible the uneasiness and indignation which this affair caused her, received the petition, and replied to the supplicants that she would ex- amine into their demands with the Lords of the Council, and that in a short time she would let them know her decision. With this response, the confederate lords re- turned to Culemburg's residence in the same order and with the same gravity with which they had left it. "After the Regent had deliberated on the petition of the nobles, that Princess replied the following day in writing that she would represent to the King their first demand in the most favorable manner possible, but that she was obliged to refuse absolutely the second, because the matter was not in her power. "While this affair was thus treated at the palace of the Princess, the populace insulted the confederate nobles by the opprobrious epithet of Gueux, which those who under- stood French badly changed into Geuzen, which afterward bCC-21116 very common as the name of a party or sect. Others say that the author of the sobriquet was the Baron of Barlemont, who, seeing the Regent surprised at the sight of so many nobles, tried to encourage her by saying, Ce ne sont que des gueuxf However that may be, this name was received by the nobles as a precious epithet, and soon became the most honorable title of that illustrious league. "The 6th of April, Brederode, being at dinner with other lords of his Pa1'tY at CH1emburg's,e put around his neck a Wallet, and flllins with wine a Wooden cup, like that worn bl' the beggars, made all the guests follow his example. 291 He de remaining faithful to his King, not only would Ijzhilekalways thing in defence of the liberties of the countr T every- ' , yr Pl Ollgh he unit be Teduced to Caffymg a wallet, but he was even TCH Y to give up his life in so good a cause All those h , , - w o were at the feast' havm-8' 11'l turn taken the wallet and the Cup, made the same declaration one after the other in the midst of a continual cry of 'Vfivent les Gueux 1' "Several of these nobles appeared the nerit day in the ying at the girdle as clared to them at the same time that streets dressed in gray frieze,a11d Carr a badge of honor, a small wallet and a little wooden cup or calabash. mrhen CA-11 15665, 945 110W cA.D. I732J, the wooden bowl was in Brabant, like the wallet, a distinctive mark, and, so to speak, a livery of beggars. ,Furnished with this neces- sary utensil of their profession, they went certain days of the week to the cloisters, where, after having taken part in the catechising, they each received, according as he had answered well or badly, a portion of soup left over by the monks. I . "It was by this low and despised method that the Pro- fessor, Thomas Stapleton, was able to reach the highest degree of erudition, notwithstanding his poverty and low birth. Sure, thanks to his porringer, of victuals which were absolutely necessary to him, he applied himself first to the languages, and afterwards to the higher sciences, with such success that he was honored with. the most distin- guished professorship in the University of Louvain. He never forgot his porringer, In the feasts which they gave when he was elevated to 'this important charge, not only did he then cause the first toast to be drunk in that cup, then ornamented with a foot of silver, but he desired that after his death it should be added to the rich ornaments of his marble tomb, as an example and as a beacon for other distinguished men of genius, the meanness of whose ex- traction might seem to condemn them to darkness.

They are obliged to go there begging by the way, and they carry this bottle-gourd, or calabash, attached to the girdle, for the purpose of carry- ing water for their use when they have to traverse dry and arid -parts of the country. For this reason these allied nobles made use both of the porringer and the wallet as an emblem of poverty, and to turn into pleasantry the name of beggars, which had been given to them with so much indignity. This is not all. These lords, wishing to engrave on each other's memory the vow which each had made to defend the privileges of the country, even to carry the wallet, took pride in wearing on the breast certain medals attached to ribbons, and very often joined with a porringer and-a gourd." The form adopted by the Holland Society is a fac- simile of the one to which are attached two such porringers and a gourd or bottle, and shows on its face the armed bust of Philip II. of Spain, with the first half of the motto, MEN '1'oUT FIDELLES AU ROY,H and on the reverse two wallets, between the straps of which are two hands joined, with the remainder of the motto, " JUSQUES A PORTER LA BESACE,H together with the date, 1566, the figures of which are, however, separated, one in each corner formed by the crossed hands and wallets. Plaster casts of originals of various sizes, in the Museum of Antiquities in Amsterdam, .were kindly presented to the Society by Dr. T. H. Blom Coster, physician to the Queen of the Netherlands. A h The die, which has been-cut by Tiffany 85 Co., is the property ofthe Society. The medals, including the cups, the flagon, the orange ribbon, and the pin, can be furnished in silver for six dollars 13565 each. They can also be sup- plied' in gold 'for twenty-eight dollars C3281 each. Mem- bers can obtain orders from the Secretary and therewith be furnished with the Badge by addressing Tiffany 85 Co. 293 THE ROSETTE OR BUTTON ' At the annual meeting of the society April 6 8 7 9 I 97, the society adopted a rosette or button, to be ' n the wearing of the other worn on occasions whe insignia might be deemed inappropriate. This consists of a shield of gold bearing the Lion of Holland in red enamel. them of the Bailey, Banks 85 Biddle Co., corner of Chestnut and 12th Streets, Philadelphia, Pa., in silver gilt at one dollar each, or in I4 k. gold at two dollars and seventy-live cents each.
