Mr. Editor:- A voiunteer eoiuter myself, and, I majr say, an ofllci-r in tlie volunteer service, I was ahvuys an enthusiastio admirer of General Logan, and looked upon liini as the one, solitary successful volunteer general. Ho was not made a major general because he was a prominent politieian, but fought bis way to tlie position. He needed do Wet Point. Nature niade him a soldier. No regular general uad a more martini bearIng. No general surpassed him in moral and physical courage. The enenij's line coulü not stand the shock of one of his impetuous charges. He gloried iu bla invincibles and his invincibles gloried In him. He was their idol and they tnourn his death as though tliey wure his oliildren. Sbow rae a battle-ñeld where American valor failed and I'll show yon an incompetent leader. With such generáis as Logan, American soliliursare and ever will be invincible. Wheu he iaid asido his uniform and entered the political field he showed tlie same superiority, and was al most, if not quite, the only general who fought his way to the front and stayed there. He was the soldier's friend, and regardless of party lines we know we have lost one of ourablest, truMl umi most devotedcomrade'.
