Qrovcr Cleveland was ono of tho
greatest and one of the most fortu
nate men of the United Stntes.
Having had a most remarkable
public career during which he was
assailed most bitterly and was hon
estly believed by ft good number of
his fellow-countrymen to be an en
emy of the public welfare, ho lived
to see time wipe out the canker of
political strife and to receive wide
spread expressions of respect and es
teem from those glad to acknowledge
him a patriot.
. In other words, Grover Cleveland
Jived the strenuous life, and did not
nave to await the erection of his
tombstone to have his good qualities
referred to with sincere praise. This
Is vouchsafed to all too few public
As President of tho United States
Grover Cleveland made some terrible
mistakes and all but wrecked tho
prestige of America in the Pacific.
On the other hand, he was a tower of
strength during serious crises In the
domestic affairs of the Nation, when
wildcat finance threatened and the
assertion of Federal authority to pre
serve decent respect of tho law
called for courage as well as discre
tion. As a partlzan Cleveland was a
doubtful quantity. He represented
revolt from party rule rather than
strict partlzanshlp. He was a tariff-for-revenue
Democrat and when the
sound-money issue was deserted by
the majority of his partlzan associ
ates he was among the boltero. He
did not allow tho commands of party
to warp his personal convictions.
Mugwumplsm first elected him.
As a party leader he had most dif
ficult tasks. The Democracy was di
vided against Itself and held its own
more on account of a general spirit
of dlscontont and demand for a
change, than a marked confidence in
the organization, Its stability, or Its
ability to carry out what It under
took. Cleveland's personality event
ually became the chief source of
Following his retirement from tho
Presidency Mr. Cleveland furnished
an example of tho Ideal spirit of our
institutions. Twice honored as the
Chief Executive of tho Nation, ho
became, on retirement, the average
American citizen. He neither com
plained for lack of appreciation nor
did he seek to glorify himself for
what he had done. He had a com
fortable and very happy home, came
forward in mattors of -public duty
when called, all the while taking an
active -Interest In the affairs of tho
country. He was not assertive, con
ceited, or dictatorial. His views
were much sought, and always
carried great weight. He was the
average American citizen though ho
had been an unusual President. Wo
doubt that later years will give him
any stronger place In history than
that allotted him while he was yet
alive. Sufficient time has passed to
Allow a fair perspective.
There, is something wondorfully
breezy and fraternal-like In the lit
erature that Is being sent to America

Cleveland's first message to Con
gress recommended n reduction of the
tnrlff and extension of the civil ser
vice reform regulation of Presiden
tial succession,, and the settlement of
the fisheries dispute with Or cat Ililt-
nln. His removals from uon-polltlcnl
oOlce were less sweeping than those,
since President Jaclison; of 987
bills passed by Congress up to Au
gust, 1880, he vetoed 102, chiefly pri
vate, bills. Ho won a sharp contest
with the Senate over suspensions and
nominations; nnd devoted his 1887
message entirely to tho existing tar
iff, denouncing It as vicious nnd un
necessary, and demanding the aboli
tion of duties on raw materials.
When re-elected In 1892, he took
offlce In 1893 In tho midst of threat
ening currency and financial condi
tions. Ills Inaugural speech declar
ed that "so far as the executive
branch of the. government .can Inter
vene, none of the powers with which
It Is invested will be withheld when
their exercise Is deemed necessary to
maintain our nattonnl credit or avert
financial disaster." Accordingly he
forced tho repeal of tho Sherman Sil
ver Purchase Act, killed tho bill for
coining the selgnoragc, maintained
the treasury's gold reserve by tho
successive Issue of government bonds,
and saved Its credit throughout tho
world, despite furious opposition by
large sections of his own and the Re
publican party favoring the free
coinage of slbcr. He repudiated the
Hawaiian annexation treaty made by
President Harrison, enforced the
neutrality laws during tho troubles
in Cuba, while firmly supporting
American interests there, and com
pelled Great Urltain to arbitrate her
dispute with Yenezuela. During the
Chicago strlko in 1894 he effectively
asserted tho Executive's rights to in
terfere 'In Stnto affairs in the inter
est of law and order.
President Cleveland married Miss
Folsom during his first administra
tion, the ceremony taking place In
the White House. Mrs. Cleveland's
public receptions wero a notable fen
turo of Washington life. Tholr first
child, "Daby Ruth," was horn In the
White House. This child died from
diphtheria a fow years ago. Two
girls and two boys remain.
