*Ang\o= American Memories
■vTENDELL. PHILLIPS.
I.
London. March 20.
j, -na? bo the winter of IS6O-'6l that the
■jsasacfensetts allies, of the Southern Slave
power made their last effort. Spite of "vVeb
(tter'e death, with whom died the brains of the
party and its vital force, these men were still
powerful in Boston. The surrender of Anthony
•Burns in May. 1554: the birth of the Republican
parry at Worcester In July of the same year, the
election of Henry Wilson as Governor, the- cow
ardly assault in the United States Senate on
Charles Eumner by Preston Brooks, of South
Carolina, In 1656 the— events had Indeed
purred the people of Massachusetts Into revolt
Epainst the Slave Party in this Free State.
But Caere had coma a lulL There was stUl
fccpes that a conflict between North and South
might be averted, and that politics might do the
work of arms. Franklin Pierce was President,
but Banks had been elected Speaker of the
House of Representatives at the first session of
the Thirty-fourth Congress in December, 1555.
Mr. Elaine said that marked an epoch, and he
described H in his brilliant "Twenty Tears of
Congress " as "a distinctive victory of the Free
Etates over the consolidated power of the Slave
gtates
But the Republicans were slow in coming to
ssacr. and their nomination of Fremont in ISO 6
cowed dis-trust among the sounder m«»n of the
party. Buchanan's election seemed to confirm
the ascendancy of the South, and the mind of
Boston, or at any rate of State Street, reverted
to oommercial politics. The Abolitionists were
es much under a cloud as ever. From 1557 to
ISOO things seemed to be going backward. The
■srners Ferry 1-jsiness alarmed the ingrained
BSBServal of Boston, and though the har.g
ing of John Brown shocked a good many mer
chants azA bankers, they could not understand,
aad wen far from approving. Brown's schem<»
or Brown's ihwlliimlh The etate of feeling in
Boston was, in short, confused, and the emotions
cf 1554 bad gone to sleep.
The crisis came in December, ISuO. The Abo
litionists tried to hold an anti-Slavery conven
tion in Tremont Temple, on the anniversary of
the hanging of John Brown, or the day after.
They do not seem to have expected trouble: at
say rate, they took no sufficient precautions to
ke^; the peace and keep control of their own
■Meting. A "broadcloth mob" — the phrase lonsr
Since became classic in Boston — occupied the
hall in force, captured the platform peacefully,
elbowed the Abolitionists off it. appointed th^ir
own chairman. Mr. Richard S. Fay, and passed
their own resolutions. "Broadcloth," said Phil
lips, "does not make a gentleman." The conven
tion was summoned To consider "How shall
American slavery be abolished?" The John
Brown anniversary was thought a suitable day
tar the dJseasaion of that question, but Brown's
death was referred to simply as "too glorious to
teed defence or eulogy." When Mr. Fay, the
rasglea of the mob. thinking his work done,
had departed. Mr. Frank Sanborn, the lawful
chairman, resumed his place, and would have
held the lawfully summoned meeting. Then the
mob Itsdfra. Mr. Murray Howe now at their
head, made a fresh attack. The police sided
with mesa and the Mayor cleared the hal!.
There is a little confusion of dates. Brown
was in fact hanged Dr< >siilh i 2. the fateful day
of Amteriitz and of the Third Napoleon's coup
d'etat. But tries* events in Boston occurred, I
think, on the 3d. The men who had been driven
out of Tremont T«-mpl«* by the moi> of which the
Mayor finally took command, reassembled In the
evenine, very QVSeUy. in a little hall in. I think.
Belknap street, on what was Impolitely known
as Nigger Hill, not far from the rather aristo
cratic y int Vernon street. Wendell Phillips,
to an ■ilienoß of perfaans three or four hun
dred. — all the r'a<-e would hold. — made an un
reported speech, red-hot -with wrath. A little
more than I year before. November 1. 1559, a
fortr-ight after Brown's attempts and while he
lay In prison waiting to be hanged. Phillips had
epoken in Brooklyn, and announced that the le&
eon of the hour was insurrection. But he weak
ened the force of that counsel by adding that the
age of bullets was over; it was an insurrection
of thought— like that of the last thirty years—
fee Etiil had in mind. Now. here in Boston, and
not for the aTSt time nor for the last, he was
face to face v.-ith force* which were not intel
lectual nor moral, i-ut forces of violence. Phillips
could not readily shake off the influences of his
■whole public l!fe. He still believed in "moral
suasion.' H. was pn aently to learn that moral
ities an<3 the oaeai of peace were a poor de
fence against men «pared to back their opin
ions with revolvers. But even after the hang-
Ing of Brown, at his grave in North Elba, Phil-
Upß could say: "I do not believe elavery will go
down in blood. Ours is the age of thought."
Perhaps the meeting of December, iB6O, marks
the beginning: of bis conversion; but by no
means its npletlon. He had long been saed to
mobs and mob law. But now the lesson was
being pressed home.
A memorable evening to dm because from H
came , r -- acqwaintsnap with Phillips, whom I
had sever n.et. rn<J*>*r the spell, I suppose, of
Ms pa«!or.ate eloquence. | went -home and wrote
him a letter. anJ I explained that I was a Whig.
'.hat my family and friends were Whigs, that I
**'onged hi a hostile camp, but that I thought
there ought to be free speech in Boston, and I
■R-OTjld do what I could for that cause and for
tini if he would say what. I was, as most young.
c r old, men of Massachusetts then were, againrt
slavery, especially in Massachusetts, but not an
Abolitionist.
The next day. cbout noon, the door of my law
«fflce In state street opened and Phillips walked
In. Without a word of preface he said: "You
"srote me a letter?" "Yes " "Will you come and
«*e me at my house this evening and we will

«rulf that he had put between himself and the
■world into which he had been born: a world of
easy circumstances if not wealth, and bound to
r^ther by a hundred social ties, nearly all of
■which he had broken. Phillips had what at that
time would be called wealth; for which he had
other uses than mere expense or comfort. A
narrow door opened into a narrow hall, out of
■which climbed narrow stairs, with a narrow
landing half way up where the stairs turned,
and at the top a Btill narrower passage to the
door of the parlour. Inside, the came impres
sion of restricted space; a room perhaps 16 feet
by 14. and plainly furnished; a worn carpet on
the floor, a large shabby sofa at the end nearest
I th«s door opposite the fireplace. Phillips was tit
ting on th© sofa, He rose and held out his hand:
"It's very good of you to come. lam afraid I
■waa abrupt this morning." Then he plunged, al
most at once, into the situation, with a forecast
of what he thought likely to happen. "Not
much If anything:, till the meeting of the Anti-
Slavery Society in January. That. I dare say,
they will try to break up. Lincoln has been
elected President and Andrew Governor. You
know what I think of Lincoln. But Andrew I
know well, and I do not believe mob law will be
allowed to rule- while Andrew Is Governor." He
had already described Andrew In Tremont Tem
ple: "For the first time within my memory we
have got a man for Governor of Massachusetts,
a frank, true, whole-souled, honest MAX."
Alas! Andrew was to disappoint him bitterly in
this one matter of free speech, though in no
other.
"But you are to speak in another fortnight at
the Music Hall," I said. "Do you think they will
let ycu alone then?" "Why," said Phillips,
"that's on a Sunday," — as if that would matter
to men whose passions, interests, animosities, all
led them to silence the orator whom they
thought, honestly enough from their point of
I view, a public danger. He asked me if I had
heard anything. I had not, but when Phillips
to!d me he was going to speak on -Mobs and
Education" I answered. "But that's a chal
lenge."
"They can take it as they like." he replied,
quite softly and coolly, adding: "If you hear
anything perhaps you'll let me know."
Our talk lasted late, turned on some personal
matters; then drifted far away to national is
sues, and much else. I thought Phillips, if any
thing, more eloquent in talk than in ora
tory, yet with never a sent* c which had in it
the ring of the platform. He was direct, sim
ple, persuasive, and luminous. His frankness
surprised me, but he told me afterward he had
made inquiries and thought it safe to be frank.
No doubt, ho saw that mine- was a sincere devo
tion, and perhaps he was aware of the enchant
ments he wove about whom h© would. At any
rate, he gave me his confidence fr.im the start.
During the next fortnight I saw many men
among my "Whit; acquaintances. They mad* no
secret of their purpose to break up that Sunday
meeting at the Music Hall. Boon th»se rumours
became public "When the subject of Phillips's
discourse was announced, the rumours spread,
and grew more menacing The police felt them
setaea called on to take notice of what was likely
to happen. Phillips, long used to dealing witn
mobs, seemed to think the police superfluous.
Some of us who had looked into the matter.
well knew they were not. Seeing Phillips from
day to day, I asked him again and apain to
promis* his friends one thing, viz., that he would
put himself and leave himeelf in thrir hands.
He still thought we were making too much
of a slight danger, but finally h» promised.
Ther* had been mobs in Boston before this,
where the police and the mob had acted tr>
gether. Thf-y co acted when Richard S. Fay and
Amos Lawrence, and Murray Howe and their
friends broke up the Anti-Slavery Convention In
Trem<->nt Temple on the morning of l>e--ernb*>r
8d — this Fame month. And it was that mob
from which Phillips was to tnko his text on
this Sunday. A piquant situation; if it had not
been something much mnr° serious; with all the
materials of a great tragedy.
This time the m<">b leader?, whoever they were,
had changed their tactics. They did not propose
to capture the Music Hall or prevent Phillips
from sp<=>e.kirg. He v.a« to be dealt with outside.
None the less did the police and Phinips's
friends, unaware of details, ta.ke measures to
guard the interior. The police were In force In
th» lobbies and pa<««ageß nnd at the exterior ap
proaches to the platform; but out of Fight.
Scores of them were in the building, and a much
larger force in waitjntr hard by. The, platform,
which ran from "r,«- plde of the. hall to the other
at the south end. was garrisoned by Phillips's
friends, armed. The enemy also were armed,
and no man could say what that Sabbath morn
ing might bring forth. Naturally, we <li«I not
know of the decision of the mob leaders — all In
broadcloth — postpone their assault till th«>
meeting was over. "We expected trouble inslds
and \ver»» ready for it. I said as little as pos
sible to Phillips of what I thought to hap
pen. I well knew that If he were told there wan
any peril in freedom of speech, his speech would
be freer than ever.
He always believed in personalities. "In such
a cause as ours you must at ali hazards rouse
attention. Men nrhose minds are made up
against you will listen to a personal attack when
they will list'-n to nothing else. If I denounce
the sin they go to Bleep, but when I denounce
the sinner they wake up." There was to be no
going to sleep on this eventful Sunday. The
Breech on "Mobs and Kducation" is perhaps the
most personal, and the most merciless, of a!!
Phillipß's speeches. The Tremont Temple rioters
had delivered themselves into his hands. He
knew every man among them and the joint in
every armour. Many of them were there on
Sunday. You saw the arrow leave th»- platform
and eink deep in the quivering; flesh. Th»- cheers
were soon mingled with hisses. The air grew
hot. But the majority were there to hear, and
the hisses were silenced. Th*re were passages
of burning eloquence; of pathos; of invective,
that tore its way through all defences.
"I have used strong words. Hut I was born
in Boston, and the good name of the old town
is bound up with every fibre of my hfart. I
dare not trust myself to describe the insolence
of men who undertake to dictate to you and me
•That we Ehall say in these grand old streets."
Thus spoke the aristocrat, the Bostonian proud
of Boston and of his own descent from six or
seven generations of the Boston I'hilllpses; an
aristocracy equal to. the best. His contempt for
the Fays snd the rest of the. "cotton clerks'* waa
largely" a contempt for the plebeian. Plebeians.
to the Boston mind, most of th«*m wfre. Fay is
pilloried forever in this speech; and others are
pilloried.
I will quote one passage, not from Phillips,
but a passage from Edward Everett on froe
speech which Phillips himself quoted toward the
end of his discourse 1 quote It because Phillips
used often to say that American oratory h.TI
few finer examples to show:
•I semi to bear a voic* from the tombs of
departing afjes, from the sepulchres of nations
that died before the sight. They exhort us,
they adjure us, to be faithful to our trust. They
implore us. by the long trials of struggling hu
manity, by the awful secrets of the prison
house wh«re tho sons of Freedom have been
immured, by the noble heads which have been
brought to "the block, by the eloquent ruins of
nations, they conjure us not to quench the light
that is rising o n the world. Greece cries to us
by th<» convulsed lips of her poisoned, dying
Demosthenes, ami Rome pleads with us in th«
mute persuasion of her mangled Tully."
It is not often that a great orator opens his
heart to us about the merits of a rival, or
whispers to us any one of the secrets of his own
or another'a eloquence. 1 cannot remember
whethei Phillips ever paid to Everett In public
the tribute I have often known him pay in
private. If he had lived in an a*?e when issues
were less vital or less deadly, he might have
found in Everett a model. But Everett has no
passion, and passion is an element in almost all
Phillips's speeches And passion, of quite an
othf-r kind, fterce. vindictive, murderous, h» was
to meet in another ten minutes. G. W. S.

PASC UAL CERVEKA DEAD
Commander of Santiago Fleet Ex
pires at Puerto Real.
Puerto Real. Spain, April 3 — Vice-Admiral
Pascual Cervera, who commanded the Spanish
fleet in the battle of Santiago, died here this
afternoon.
The members of the admiral's family were
present at his bedside, as was also Rear Ad
miral Eulate, -who was commander ot the Viz
caya at Santiago.
Admiral 'Jervera, in his last hours, asked that
no military honors be paid him. He showed
preat fortitude and begged his relatives not to
grieve. He retained consciousness until within
a few minutes of his death, which was due to
heart disease.
King Alfonso has telegraphed his condolences.
Pascual de Cervera y Topete. Confle de Jerez,
Marquis de Santa Ana, was born In tha province of
Jerez, where his father, Carlos de Cervera, was a
man of large wealth, owning several estates, and
was known as one of the richest wine merchants
of Spain. Oerrera'a mother was Marie Porpete, a
daughter of Count Porpete y Velle, of the royal
family of Spain.
He entered the Naval Academy at San Francisco
when eighteen years old, and was graduated three
years later, in 1554, and was afterward attached to
several different training ships to prepare himself
for naval warfare. In 1869 he exjterienced his first
campaign. In the expedition sent out by Spain
against Morocco he was promoted to be first lieu
tenant for his services. He was next attached to
an expedition sent to Cochin China, In IS«2. After
ward he was attached to the Spanish Legation in
Washington, and subsequently was made a captain

Admiral Cervera said:

personality, hla unaffected dignity, composure and
kindnf.«s of heart, and he carried l«a.-k with him
to Spain the cordia] respect and good wishes of
all the American people.
Admiral Cervera and other Spanish prisoners of
war arrived ln Portsmouth on the steamers Vale
and Harvard, formerly the SL Louis and the St.
Paul, in July. IS3S. The admiral and his surviving
officers, after remaining a week, were sent to An
napolis, where they were quartered until arrange
ments were mads to sf-nd th»*ni to Spain at the
close of th- war. The admiral returned lo Ports
mouth early in September and rejoined the sailors
who had been held there. All the Spaniards, with
th«- exception of fifteen, who died in camp and were
buried on Seavey's Island sailed on the steamer
City of Rome for their own land on September 12.
Admiral Cervera made many friends while in this
country. Oil one ouciisiju. wbea Dasslns through
Boston, he was enthusiastically cheered by crowds
which assembled at the railroad stations. During
his last visit to Portsmouth he was the guest of
honor at a complimentary dinner given by the citi
zens. On the- eve of his departure for Spain Ad
miral Cervera thanked the Americans for their
kindness in the following letter:

At the time of the staking of the aferrhnae and
the capture of Hobson and h'.s men. Admiral Cer
vera offered to exchange the men. It was his
generous treatment of Hob?on and his men that
laid the foundation for Cervera's popularity in
America. The admiral, since leaving this country,
had occasionally written to friends in this city.
It is estimated that his autograph can be found in
five hundred Portsmouth homes.
After his return to Spain his conduct in the
battle of Santiago was made the subject of an
Inquiry by special court martial. On July 7. 1599,
he was acquittej, and formally liberated.
In February pt 1901 the Queen Regent of Spain
signed a decree! appointing Rear Admiral Cervera
a vice-admiral. From that t;uie he lived in peace
and comparative; luxury. In addition to his salary
as vice-admiral, 'he received a large salary as head
of a big mining interest on the Mediterranean Sea
and as president of a line of* steamships running
between Mediterranean and English ports. He oc
cupied a luxurious house In Puerto Real, a fashion
able suburb of Cadiz.

ANOTHER DAY OF OPERA.
From the size and temper of yesterday's matinee
audlenr»» »' the Metropolitan < >pe ra House, when
"II HarbiAre di Sfviglla" and "CavaUeria Rustl
cana" w«>r<> performed, the cwmial observer might
have Inferred that entertainments or this kind were
of unique rarltj in Sew York. coming at th» end
of twenty weeks of opera at this house, and after
twenty others, almost equally busy, at the Man
hattan, this matinee brought to the theatre a
throng of men. women and ChUdrea that falrly
packed every available foot of space within its
ample walls. There was an air of festivity and en-
II uatasm that was reflected in the acting and sing
ing of thoso on the s':ig>\ and both Roaatnl and
Mascagnl fared well at their hands. Mr. Bond
and Mr. Caruso were both in the casts, and the
latter's presence, after ■ nynth of illness, may
have bad much tO do with the enormous number of
the auditors. Mr. Bond, too, had his special trib
ute of applause, and ao did the others concerned,
among them Miss I<estinn. who was the heroine
of "Cavallerla Kusticana."
Tannhauser." In the evening, was also heard
by a fine audience, and, under Mr. Hertz's direction.
It went with authoritative eloquence. The cast was
familiar exivpt for the Venus of Mme. Kaschow-
Bka, which disclosed this singer's knowledge and
Intelligence. Mr. Burrlan. Mme. Bforena and Mr.
Gorita were in excellent form and spirits, and what
they did was fully appreciated.
THEATRICAL NEWS.
Mr. Sothern has found occasion to deny again
the Intimation that he will lend his talents to the
New Theatre when It Is formally opened. The
present opportunity was afforded him by mi an
nouncement that he and Miss Marlowe were to re
unite for a short season of revivals, beginning May
15 at the Academy of Music. Mr. Van Duaen, man
ager of that playhouse, said he was not aware of
any such booking!.

COLUMBIA "GR ADS" DUE
ALL MM HOSOR TO DE AS.
Five Hundred at Birthday Dinner
for John Howard Van Amringe.
VAX AM.
Awake, o Muse; there's work for you and me.
Th« Early Eighties sound their C. Q. t>.
For Poesle,
And for a theme they offer us to-night
No mer«lv mundane thlnfr. nor topic trit».
But a»k us that ws sound with all "ur art
Fit honor to a great and nobl« 'heart.
Tou know him ,well. O Muse, for In thy k»n
Hath come full knowledge, of all «r>d!t».e men.
A friend of Zeus and all ta' Olympian crew.
Beloved Van Am can't be unknown to you —
Yet If he be less known than Fattier Zeua is.
The fault's not his. but yours. Queen of the Muses.
— John Kendrick Banes.
These words of J.->hn Kendrick Banes expressed
the feelings of five hundred ColumDia graduates
who gathered at the "Waldorf last night for the
dinner arranged by the Socisty of the Early
Eighties ln honor it Dean John Howard Van Am
rlnge, "60, who has just completed fifty years as a.
teacher ln the university.
But we feva Van Avn from our heart and fml:
Let 8 drink to his health, let us flnl«h th« bowl.
We'll swear by Van Am, through fair and through fcul.
And wish him the top o' the morning.
Dean Van Amringe sa* half concealed behind a
massive loving cup of silver presented by "his boys"
and listened to nearly five hundred of them chant
this and other verses. Speeches laudatory of him
by some of the best known men who have played
a part in the life of the city had preceded the pres
entation of the cup, but it remained for Dr. Nicholas
Murray Butler, president of the university, to pay
what was perhaps the most graceful tribute of the
evening to the venerable and venerated dean. "May
our beloved friend live a thousand years,'" he said,
"and may I live a thousand years myself— less one
day— for I would not want to live a single day and
know that Dean Van Amringe had passed away."
Ex-Mayor Low said that two men stood out pre
eminently in his life, and one of them was Dean
Van Amringe. He touched on the close relations
which had existed between the dean and those who
came before him. Nothing, he said, d!d the dean
like better than to pluck some brand from the burn-
Ing, turn back into the right path some, young fel
low who hail gone astray.
Charles P. Sawyer set the keynote when he closed
his brief introductory speech by quoting Oliver
Wendell Holmes's "Boys. We're Twenty To-night."
and then Introduced James Duan* Livingston, '90.
with the simple words. "Boys, here's "Jim." "
I'ea:i Van Amringe had a birthday yesterday, but
what one it was Is a guarded mystery. Mr. Sawyer
hazarded seventy-Ova as his nanss; others raised
the estimate to eighty, but las: nigh', the dean was
twenty, with the rest of them.
Julien T. Davles. "66. ended his remarks by pre
senting to the venerable dean a $5«X> silver loving
cup as a gift from all the diners, and Mr. Sawyer
handed the guest of honor a parchment scroll on
an ebony mounting with the signature of every
one of the 560 alumni on It.
rrofessor Charles F. Chandler told of the influ
ence of the School of Mines, and how Its graduates
had set a standard all over the world — in the
West-m States, ln Africa, In Burmah* India, and In
Europe. Everywhere on<=- went, he said, the Ameri
can f-ngineer was found, and chief among them
was always the Columbia man.
I>ean Van Amringe, when his turn came to speak,
< : ,r r-efore Mr. Davies presented the cup to him,
said:
There Is no music so melodious to my ear, so
satisfying and uplifting to my heart, as that which
proceeds from the tuneful lips of the alumni or
Columbia. It gives me. at least I hope it will give
me the courage, not to say the hardihood, to eus
taln my?eif In this, the most delightful, as It is the
most embarrassing, of my academio experiences.
Surely nothing could be bo grateful to the *enslt>M
ties of a college or university professor as the go£d
will of such men as you. who were once his stu
dents and have remained his friends, and my em
rarra«sment Is great inasmuch as. in looking bacK
over my term of service, I cannot find, thougn I
have sought long and anxiously, a reasonable
ground of this, to me, amazing, touching and ex
alting ■■• casioa. ...
AS I listened to the kind, the more than Kind
q--l too appreciative references to days that are
gone and mjr part in them, as I sat here enthralled
lv th» rhythmic cadences ot Brother Bangs's verse
— Bang3's ravin" which entitles him to a place in
The Hall of Fame by the side of Poe— l became
somewhat confused, and am now a little uncertain
ss to whether I am attending a birthday party or
a wake! On pinching myse'f. however. I find that
I still feel, thnt I am not really dead but only in
s hypnotic tran.-e. from which I hope to emerge on
Monday morning, able to go on yei a little whlle
in this good world and in thi« best of universities.
I have been told that a mild Interest has been
created among you concerning the number of years
j have so far consumed in making my pilgrimage
from the cradle to the srrave I shall pluck the
heart out of fh«t unimportant and trivial mystery
yy o .j are — I knnw be<-aus* J taught you— you are
enamoured of formulas, and I will give you an easy
and well .balanced one. I am older th/in I feel and
younger, perhaps, th:ui I look: add these together,
divide hy two. make correction for latitude and
the variation of the needle, and you have the re
suli exact to within n few minutes. So fades the
darkening cloud away:

J'llien T Davles, discussing "Ahnanl Repre

Xor will alma mater fail greatly to profit by this
new relation. Reciprocity is the law of life, and
the act of giving leads instantly to the act of re
ceiving. . . ._ , ,
Alumnl representation in the board wi!! quicken
the interest of the alumni generally In the univer
sity snd results will be quickly accomplished ln
many material ways. Even alma mater, divine be-
Ing that she is. must have bread and meat with
which to sustain life, and the more she becorae* an
object of thought and Interest to her many thou
sand alumni th» more will they realize and minis
ter to her many needs.
Not the least Important result to be sought is
that our alumni will consider It an obligation to
send their sons and grandsons to Columbia's halls,
and with the Increase of dormitories and athletic
facilities the Inclination toward other universities
of those who belong to us may be happily and natu
rally checked.
John Kendrick Bangs them read his birthday
poem in honor of Dean Van Amringe. The last
stanza of the twenty-odd ran thus:
But bring no letters vain to me
T i deck my autojrrar'h.
I »e»k no raudy Ph. D.
Or other parchment rh»ff;
But let me have writ 'neath my name.
All fr<* from hnllow »ham.
