K Abraham Lincoln In tlio troub
Ioub times of tlio Civil War, which
tried his soul us tlio souls of few
men have heen tried, could have look
ed forward n little less thnu half u
cntury, nnd have realized the- love
that his memory would awaken In
the hearts of the Inhabitants of a
croup of Inlands far out lu the Pa
nic that then formed no part of tlio
ountry which ho was trying no hard
lu hold one nnd undivided It with
tho eyes of n prophet he could have
looked upon tho assemblage that
gathered in tho Honolulu Opera
House last night and hnvc heard the
ilnecru words of praise nnd respect
for tho grentest American that over
lived It would no doubt have been
i Humclcnt iccompcnso for tho pntn
.Hid suffering that ho was railed up
on tho enilurc. He was but partially
understood when ho was alive, hut
the addresses of last night showed
fully that his ideals of moro thnu fif
ty years ago have beenmo tho Ideals
of tho Amcricnn people nt today.
Tho program opened with n selec
tion by tho Fifth Cavalry Hand.
C'hnlrman .tack Atkinson formally op
ened tho meeting with a snort address
In which ho pointed out tho lessons
of democracy taught by tho Ufa of
Lincoln, tho Influence of whoso kind,
ncss and good-will ho declared to bo
one of the most priceless heritages
of tho American people.
Col. Schuyler of tho Fifth Cavalry

ed that tho soldiery of tho United
Slates are not In Hawaii as tho mes
sengers of wnr but of peace. "Wo
crme to J on with tho sword, but It is
lu tho scabbard," ho said, "and If wo
bring you any message, It Is ono of
pciico nnd good-will, nnd tho wish
for your continued prosperity. Wo
have come to you with n kindly curi
osity and a genuine Interest in you
mid our pursuits. Wo nro prepared

delighted In their bold freedom and
did not care It they we're noisy.
Ho looked uhii tho hard privations
of his own boyhood as an example to

reason, ho was not given to preaching

boy I had to do tlits.nnil that."

LINCOLN AND HIS. SOLDIERS.
Lincoln's Ilfo was filled with strlk
Ing contrasts. For this careless cap-
tuln of a company of unruly rustics lu
tho lllack Hnwk Wur to become tho
Commander-in-chief of a million sol
diers, a mightier forca of wnrrlors
than nuy conquering monarch of mod
ern times over nssembted, wns perhaps
the strangest fortune that befell him,
In four years ho called to his command
two nnd a half millions of men, prob
ably n greater number than followed
tho eagles o( Napoleon In all his twen
ty years of campaigning from Areola
Yet this unparclled martini power
never touched tho ambition of Lincoln,
Ho cared nothing for tho pomp of
arms, tho prldo of rank, or tho glory
of war. This man who could suy to
tou hundred thousand armed troops,
go, nnd they would go, come, and they
would como, held himself to he no
moro than tho equal of tho least
among them, Whllo ha stood toward
all as a comrade rather limn a com
mander, they looked up to him in per
fect trust, and delighted to hall him
us Father Abraham
It wns enough for him lo touch his
hut to a general, hut ho liked to bare
his head to the boys In the ranks. Ho
himself created generals by tho hun
dreds, but lu his eyes tho prlvuto sol
dier was tho handiwork of tho AT
mighty, Tho reported capture of an
otilccr nnd twelve army mules In u
aid near Washington only moved him
to remark, "How unfortunate! I can
fill that brigadier's plnco In five mill
utcB, but thoso mules cost iib two hnn
dred dollars apiece." Ho. never to tho
end solved the mystery of tho uni
forms, nnd could not tell n general
from a colonel by his epaulettes.

LINCOLN AND HIS CABINET.
Lincoln hated to dictate. Ho shrank
from nssumlng to control tho members
of his cabinet until forced by circum
stances to tako upon himself the re
sponsibility. Ills natural preference
wns fo work with, rather than to lead
men. Ho could not bear to humble
nny fellow-being, however low his
rank. Ho found, lioweer, ns emergen
cies nrose, that some one must rule,
und that as rrcsldent ho alone wns
responsible to the people. Ills courage
never permitted him to shirk n duty,
and thus lit t lo by llttlo his power was
modestly put forth until his quiet
maBtery was complete.
When tho members of Lincoln's
cnlilnet first met, probably no ono
among them suspected thut their conn
sets would bo ruled by tho man who
sat at tho head of tho table. None of
them kucw htm, nnd most of them felt
they wcro tho superiors of tho untried
nnd untrained President. They had
nit been chosen by him for political or
purty reasons. Four had been his
competitors for tho nomination at
Chicago. Ho had not ono pcrsouul
friend In tho group.
