ThePortland Oregouian is rapidly at-^talulng a ^bad eminence^ such as no de^^cent Journal would covet. A few weeks^ago It published a filthy tirade against^the wife of the preMdeut of the United^Htates, which exceeded in venom even^the Infamous screed which nearly pro^^duced a mobbing of the Minneapolis^Tribune office about eighteen months^ago. The latest outrage by the Oregon^iau Is a gross attack upon the personal^character and military reputation of^Gen. George A. Custer, the only apparent^motive of which is that so far as he took^any Interest In polities ttt all he was a^democrat, although, having been always^in the army, he was never In a position^to take part iu politics. The article lu^the Oregouian lfl baeed upon the fact^that there Is In Michigan a dlscussiou as^to whether the niche lu the national^hall of representatives assigned to that^state shall be occupied by a statue of^Senator Zacharlah Chandler or one of^Gen. Custer. After singing the praises^of Chandler in most extravagant fash^^ion the Oregouian says:
Geo.Custer was a military adventurer^and a man of rvpulaivp private character.^I i.-it r orders from .Sheridan he was of Im^^portant tervire aa a dating and energflls^Eroopsr, but beyond this eourage am] r*-rk^tenant*** whieh made turn an efficient In^UllSlSSJt raf destruction when guided and^restrsiowl by Sheridan, ^ utter is of no his^^torical ronpe'jiivnce. Head Sheridan's^sut-moirs, and it will I* jwrfectly plain that^he regarded Qefl Merriti at an sf^l^* man, to^^ hose skill and discretion he could safely^trust, while Custer was nothing hut a bold,^reckless trooper, who could not he trusted^beyond his strict orders. MsrlrrhUi*.^younger tban Custer, was admired and^trusted hv Sheridau ttecause be was a man^of kSjIssjM Intellectuality and soldierly t^s-^havior. hat Custer was of the tvpc of Both^wall, whom lislfour of Hurley kills lu^Old Mortality.' He was a tall, strong,^Djuacular, hold, reck lets unprincipled^trooper, with all the vices of a soldier and^none of his virtues, save animal^courage. After the war Custer's^character In the army was deleft^able. He was In su bord 1 n Ate, was^often in arrest, and was notoriously a self^^ish, rsctlssi solrtlrr who would he sure to^break his orders if he could make a point^for himself. After the war he did nothing^beyond the surprise of a earny of sleeping^Indians on a wintry night. He lost his life^and sacrificed his whole personal command^in his salttsh ambition to sr. Hi all the glory^before Terry, Gibbon and Crook could^cone up. Had he lived be would have^been conrt-rnartialed for his violation ol^orders. AlU^g^ther fpsa. Custer was a^very mean. Hellish, immoral man, nf small^military capacity but vast ambition. He^was a miserable military demagogue. He^attended the famous ^Andy^ Johnson aim^in arm Philadelphia convention in IftSri,^nnd he hastened to abuse President Grant^before the committee of the house of repre^^sentatives In May, 1H70. Custer was a^gambler, B roue, a military dep per ado, ad^^venturer, and bully; and every officer of^the regular army who was a hlghtoned^man of honor and courtesy who knew hlrn^disliked iiuu. The figure of such a man in^(fie national gallery of statuary would not^s!ami for Michigan; It would not stand for^grand soldiership or tine character.
Theanimus of the whole article Is^found In the sentence: ^He attended the^famous 'Andy' Johnson arm in arm con^^vention of I WW.^ As to the facts re^^garding Gen. Custer's personal character^and military services,a biographer notes^that Geu. MeUellan, recogulzlng hts en^^ergy aud perseverance at Chlckahomluy,^appointed him aide-decamp with the^rank of captain June 2, Mai Gen. Mr^Clellan's retirement caused Custer to be^returned to his regiment, but soon after^^wards fie was made aide to (Jen. i'leas-^onton. Gallantry at Aldle and Brandy^Station as well as in the closing opera^^tions of the Rapahaunock campaiga^brought him promotion to the rank of^brigadier general of volunteers June 2B,^IMP*, when he took command of ttie^Michigan brigade. Ills bravery at Get^^tysburg was recognized by promotion to^major iu the regular army, and a little^later he was made h lieutenant-colonel^^for gallaut and meritorious services lu^the battle of Yellow Tavern.^ He took a^conspicuous part in Gen. Sheridan's sec^^ond raid on Kicbuiond. Promotions and^resolutions of congress recognized Ills^services in battle at Winchester, Klsher's^Hill, Woodstock (whero he met aud^muted hM aTast Point classmate, Gen.^Koaseri, Cedar Creek, Waynesboro, Klve^Korks and IMnwIddie Court-House. Six^mouths' achievements are thus recorded^In an aidlress to his troops. Issued April^w, IMA
Duringthe past six months, though In^most LbbpbBBOSS confronted by superior^UBUihers, you haw captured from the^enemy 111 pieces of field artillery, ft5 bat^^tle flags aud upwards of 10,000 prisoners^of war, Including seven general officers.^.... You have never lost a gun, never^loat a color, and never been defeated,^and . . . you have captured every piece^of artillery which the enemy has dared to^open upon you.
Illswhole military career was marked^by a bravery that was as far removed^from mere animal courage as the beav^eus are atsjve the earth. He uever or^^dered his soldiers where he would uot^lead the way, and eleven horses were shot^under him in battle. At '~M he was a^brigadier general of volunteers, and at^25 a major general. Of his personal^habits It Is said upon the best authority:
Hewas a man of Immense strength and^endurance, and, as he used neither liquors^nor tobacco, his physical conditions were^perfect through all the hardship* of his^life. He reverenced religion, be showed^deferenca to the aged, he honored woman^^kind, he was fond of children and devoted^to animals. His domestic life was charac^ten/ed by a simplicity, joyous contentnent^and fondness for home that was surprising^when it It is remsmt^ered that, out of the^thirty seven years of hli brief life, fourteen^were spent in active warfare,
Gen.Custer died In the service of bis^country and left a fame behind which^the attacks of malignant partisans can^^not tarnish. To Montana, especially,^his memory is sacred, for it was to res^^cue this territory from a savage foe that^Gen. George A. Custer laid down his life*
