canvas, and in story, and more than this, afford them the amplest opportunities to commemorate themselves.
Perhaps among you there may be found some author, statesman, poet, sculptor, painter, architect, inventor who may thus create for your city what shall be in future times its proudest claim to immortality. See to it that those men have recognition now, while they still live. It did little good to Columbus for posterity to rear statues to his memory while his contemporaries loaded him with chains. Cherish these men while they are still among you and give them places of honor in the grateful hearts of their fellow-citizens. Let jealousy, envy, rivalry and bickering be forgotten. Cherish them, not because you may approve of all they say and do, but because they are yours and because their words and deeds may do more to promote the real eminence of your community than the tallest building or the most productive manufactory in the world. [Great applause.]
MAYOR GUTHRIE: Ladies and Gentlemen: Those of you who belong to Pittsburgh and those who are our guests here I think will join with me in gratification at the knowledge that the lessons which we have received during this week will not be fruitless. It has already been arranged that a commission will be appointed to take charge and make history and remove from existence many and perhaps all evils which have been pointed out to us by our kindly friends. It gives me great pleasure to announce to you that our fellow citizen, Mr. H. D. W. English, has consented to act as chairman of the commission which has been appointed. [Great applause.] Mr. English, I think that the sentiment which has been displayed is a proper appreciation of your self-sacrifice in undertaking this great and beneficent work. Good night. [Applause.]
The meeting then adjourned.
