When on July 141780 nt the ago of nine
teen Albert Uailalln who seems t have run
away from hU guardians nt Gcnoxa landed at
7npi Ann In Mas achus3tts ho bad but four
liundred silver dollars hit his Intellectual
equipments considerably larger and richer
than those posiossed at tho same ago by tho
native Americans who woro t b called upon
lo frame and operate the American Constitu
tion Although ho was the son rind grandson
of traders nnd rrnsucceeefurh traders nt that
for nil that ho the only child surviving nt tho
time received In 1786 by way of patrimonial
nherltnnco appears t have been 5000 he
ind been educated at the Academy of Geneva
nol1 Is true aunlvonlty l did not become
such until 1373 end tho only university then
existing In Switzerland was at Dasel but In
comparably superior to any educational Insti
ititlon which nt that tints assumed the name of
college on this sub ot the Atlantic Latin was
aught there with unite as much thoroughness
as n Oxford or Cambridge and Greek was not
more neglected than It was In the Gorman uni
versities when Parson could venture to Indite
hil sarcastic qtiartraln Young Oallatln also
irofltod by nil tho instruction attainable at
Geneva In mathematics and natural philosophy
for I Is remembered that ns regards these
branches ho was the first ot his class and In
history ho had tho advantagoot hearing uuoh a
lecturer n Johannes von Matter Besides his
icndcmlcal training enjoyed n Mr Hktvona I
Is careful to point out tho stimulating Influ
one > of Geneva society at a time when tho
homo of Koussoau and tho choson place of exile
of Voltaire had become In the eyes of learned
and lettered Europe n kind of literary Mecca
I Is indeed an Interesting coIncidence that
tho place to which young Gibbon was sent lor
I education was the place from which younc
Qnllalln emigrated to the United Stoics
Mr Stevens tolls us that Oallatln brought no
prudlshnoss nnd no orthodoxy In his Gone
voo boggnco But I Is scarcely true that tho
boy of 19 brought with him Ideas no radically
democratic as those which hn presently im
bibed and which ho maintained upon the
whole with notable consistency through all his
afterlife On page G Mr Btovons speaking
tho political notions with which he credit to
by In Gonovn says Ho was by early con
viction n democrat In tIre broadest sonao of the
term yet on page 10 he notes what Is scarcely
compatible with the former assertion that his
family belonged t the Oligarchic party and
that his personal bins was toward the Negatlfs
ns those vroro called who maintained the au
thority of the Upper Council Petit Consoll to
reject the demands of tho people Tho fact
obvlouxly Is that while for tire epoch end place
In which his mature years wore to be passed 1
young GallaUn was exceptionally well edu
cated the processes of redaction nnd applica
tion by which pecondhand knowledge Is
transmuted into wisdom wero all to b per
formed In the country of his mloptlon
There In no reason for supposing that Albert
GallaUn whose journey from Geneva t tho
transatlantic colonies which were still engaged
In nn uncertain struggle for Indopondonen was
nn escapade conceived In a burst of youthful
enthusiasm came t this country with tbe set
tled purpose of remaining hero for life much
loss with any hopo of attaining to political em
inence In the Now World His beginnings were
modest nnd of course the young Swiss bad
nonoot tire prestige which caused the French
aristocrats whom caprice or sentimental affec
tations hind led to offer their swords about the
same period to tho revolted colonies t 0
looked upon In the light of condescending sav
iors Most of tho 10 with which be landed
was Invested tea which hu bartered In Dos
Ion for rlllu lran tobacco nnd ho made up
Ills mind to try nnd dispose of this mer
chandise nt Mach Ins In tho extreme cost

for his goods but the products of the
fish lumber and furs and aftorre
country f lumbr nm tur Itor remaining
maining R year on the Eastern frontier whore
bin main occupation Booms t have boon wood
cutting he returned with n sadly depleted
purse to Boston whore he fot to work to earn
Ills broad by giving lessons In French That
lio had no great success at first may be inferred
from the fact that ho had to send for money to
n friend In Geneva but In July 1782 he was
permitted t teach tho French language nt Har
vard College end about seventy of the students
availed themselves of his services for which
lie received about 1300 n year At the
end of a twclromonth fortunately ho de I
termined to leave Cambridge whore noth
ing bettor than nn Illpaid professorship
awaited him In order to accompany In the
function of Interpreter a French gentleman
ono Savary do Yalooulon who spokn no Eng
lish but who had crossed the Atlantic t pros
ocuto certain claims against the State of Vir
ginia for advances mado by his house At this
tlnio speculation was active In tho lands be
tween tho Monongahela and Kanawba Rivers
and before UfO new friends left Philadelphia for
Richmond Savary had bought warrants for
120000 acres between the Great and Little
Kanawha Rivers and interested Gallntin t
tho extant of onequarter In the purchase an
Interest which was subsequently increased
to onehalf Mr Stevens tolls us that
soon after the completion of this transaction
the sale ot some mal portions reimbursed
them for thraofourtbsot tire original cost yot
It does not appear that this or any other ol his
purchases In Western lands proved of much
ultimata vnluoto Gallatln By this tlmo how
ever he had mad up hIs mind to settle for
Borne years at all events in what wa > then the
West Iud accordingly In 1781 ho built a log
hut and opened a country store In Fayotte
county Pennsylvania about four miles north
of the Virginia line Although his residence was
thus established In Prinnsjlvanln It was on
tho other side of the State line that ho took
measures to become an American cItizen by
appearing before the court of Monongalla
county In Its October term In 1785 nnd sub
scribing the oath ol allegiance and fidelity to
tho Commonwealth of Virginia Neither Gal
latin of those this occasion
1111 nor any present on oMslon
could havo foreseen tire imnortanci of this
date or have guessed that the young stranger
who could then steak tine English language
but Imperfectly and who never learned to
speak It without n marked foreign accent
would bu refused a seat In the Federal Senate
on tho ground that ten years had not elapsed
since hu becamo 1 oitlon ol the United Statin
Althouub Mr Gallntin wan neither pecuni
silly successful mirhappy as ahackwoodn farm
er there IH nn doubt that his determination
to live on tIre frontier was an Indispensable
condition of his rlso to political distinction
There Is no reason tosupposo that this French
speaking Swiss who to the end of his public
life was taunted by his political opponents with
Iris Inability to ironounoo correctly the Kng
llh language would have fared much better
in Now York or Philadelphia than nt start
ing he seemed likely to fare at Boston
or at Cambridge On tire other hand In
the western wilds of Pannsylvanln which
wore then to tho longsnttled communi
ties east of the Alleghenies what Dakota i
Is to us the young Genevan was 1 great man
foi although ho was not 1 member of any of
the liberal professions ho possessed nn excel
lent education as well a remarkable abilities
and ho was thus able to render his neighbors
precious services which caused them t out
grow tha prejudices at first exalted by his
furoura manners Idioms and accent The
fact moreover that ho took an active though
n prudent part In the popular commotions
which lob to the whiskey insurrection and that
ho thus rendered hlinsalf obnoxious t the Fed
eral authorities endeared him t the people
of the western counties und mode his elec
tion to the State Legislature end nulwo
quontly to tire HOUHO ot Representatives
and tire Senate not only possible but easy I
will li remembered that Gallatln was clerk of
a Washington county meeting In 1791 where
resolutions were adopted to Boycott eery cltl
ren who would assist in the collection of the
Federal duty upon whiskey and that Mr Gal
latin was accustomed t refer to hU action on
this occasion as ha sole political fin I should
rather be regarded an a atroko of good fortune
for next t another extrinsic circumstance t
which wo shall presently revert tho accident o
hl close identification with 1 popular upris
ing gave him a hold on tin confidence of wost
orn Pennsylvania that remained unshaken
during his political career
Tho second exterior olrcumManoa to which
wo have referred was Mr Oallntlns second
marriage to n daughter ot Commodore Jamos
Nicholson his first wife tho daughter of a
French emigrant In Richmond having only
lived a year niter the voddlng By this mar
rlngo Mr Qnllntln greatly strengthened his po
litical connectlonhU wifes father being ono
of tire acknowledged loaders of tire Republican
party In New York and three ot her sisters
being married t prominent members ot the
Senate and house ot llonrrcwntatlves from
Southern Slates Mr Gallatln it seems
wna Introduced t this Nicholsons by Al
exander James Dallas who shares with
Oallatln and Hamilton the distinction
of being ono ot the only three foreign
born clllnins of this country who have hold tho
high ofiloo ot Secretary of Ibo Treasury Mr
RUnons points out the coincidence that H
GiUUtln like Mr Hamilton materially fortl
Qed his own aoolal and political position by his
matrimonial connection with an Influential
American family but the author ot this biogra I
phy Is I mistaken In asserting that Mr Dallas
profited by the same kind of assistance through
marrying a daughter of Gov Mlfllln Mr
Dallas married an English lady who came with
him to this country and who survived him
many years
There Is no doubt that Mr Qallatln having
boon elected a United States Senator In Feb
ruary 1793 or loss than eight years after he
had legally become an Amorlenn citizen was
Ineligible to tho office under Article I section
3 of tho Constitution I I possible however
that he might have bAn permitted to retain
his Boat If ho hail not from the outset taken an
aggressive attitude toward the Federalist
party by moving a resolution calling upon the
Secretary of tire Treasury for a complete state
ment of receipts and expenditures His subse
quent exclusion although constitutionally ins
tilled caused him to b rcgnnlid by tho anti
FudoralUU as a martyr to his principled und
In October 1731 ho wan ohooen by his fellow
citizens both to the Pennsylvania Assembly
and to tIre House of Representatives A Bocond
attempt was made by the Federalists to stifle
him and the election ot all the members of tire
Legislature from his Congressional district
was docarod void by tho Assembly on tho
ground that this part ot Pennsylvania had
of Insurrection Mr Gallatln
bean In a statoof l1surroclol rOulltu
howeor was triumphantly reflloctcd to tho I
Legislature and ho was accordingly permitted
to take his suit without opposition In the
fourth Congress whoso first session began In
Philadelphia on December 7 17U5 Tho ad
ministration of Washington was drawing
to I close but tine Senate ns well ns the execu
tive and judicial departments was In the
hands of tho Federal party Tbe House was
nearly equally divided and hero was to b
battle which after
fought tho great political bllto
many vicissitudes wn to end In tho complete
victory of Democratic principles Hamilton
nnd Jefferson whoso names were moat con
spicuously associated with tIre antagonistic
parties were watching tho contest from
a distance the former from his law
ofllco In New York to which ho had
retired from tho Treasury tho latter
from his homo In Montlcollo Tho nominal I
head of tho Republican opposition In the
House was Madison but tire most effective
tactician nnd debater on bin side had beD
Giles of Virginia who howovor was thence
forth destined to bo gradually superseded by
Mr Gallatln The real object of Jcflorsonian
party was to nxtond the powers of tire House
and to subordinate tho Executive to Its will
and tire Ort vigorous effort In this direction
looked to a tightening of the control of tho
house over tho Treasury Department Mr
Qallatln bad scarcely entered the Ious be
fore ho procured tho appointment of a Stand
ing Committee of Finance to superintend fiscal
operations a committee which afterward be
came known us the Committee of Ways and
Moans Ho renewed also the demand which ho
had made In tho Senato for a comparative
view of tho receipts anti expenditures for oach
year and for a statement of nil tho applica
tions of public moneys by tho Treasury since
the formation of tire Government Mr tJalla
tins aim was to establish tire expenses of oach
department on a permanent footing for which
annual appropriations should bo made and In
lire case of any extraordinary expenditure to
insist on 1 special appropriation which should
In no circumstances bo exceeded Hamilton
Ilmllon
had refused to supply Iho Houso of Representa
tives with detailed Information relating t tho
management of tho Treasury and It was Mr
GallaUn who first awakened the people to 1
sense of their rights In this regard who
aroused the House to a consciousness of its
legislative duties and ultimately forced the
Treasury to 1 strict and Incessant account
ability From him too come the first per
emptory declaration In Congress ot the su
premacy of tire House of Representatives by
claiming for that body a discretionary power to
appropriate or refuse appropriations for any
purpose whatever Ho wont so far as to main
tain apropos of the Jay treaty that
although the treatymaking power bad been
lodged in the President and Senate
loled lsldent Bnnie Tot
the House 8 being the grand Inquest
ot the nation had the right t call for the
papers on which the treaty had been farmed
seeing that It might wish to ground upon thorn
on impeachment Ha held moreover with
Madison that blnce a treaty when mado must
depend for Its execution on a law to be passed
by Congress the House ha a right t discuss
the expediency ot carrying treaties Into effect
This principle was embodied in I resolution
and carried by a largo majority notwithstand
ing President Washington had refused to sub
mit the Jay tiapara in compliance with Ihn
JIY IIpOr3 cmlllnco wih re
quest ot tire House I Is remarkable Hint
during this his first session Mr Gallatln
who was repeatedly taunted on tho floor of
thin house with his foreign birth and accent
shared with Madison the distinction of framing
the programme of his party and at the next
session became Its acknowledged loader
I Is well for the Democrats to remember
that throughout his Congressional career Mr
GiUlnlln Ret his face asalnst the military
iHtibtlHhinnnt attacked the prlnulplu on
which It was based nnd every appropriation
In detail from tire nay of a MajorOeneral
to tho cost of uniforms tire
cn InUorm for private soldiers
lie did not bjllovo I htiindlng army necessary
for thin support of tire United States Govern
ment and considered the money silent upon It
thrown away Tlm navy found no moro favor
In the eyes of f Mr Gallatln although ha had
married the daughter of I Commodore and
although his brotheratnlHW wore naval offi
cers Ho denied that fleets were nocossiry to
protect commerce anti declared that there was I
no nation except Grunt Britain whose navy
had any connection with commerce while I
the price that country had paid for It
was I debt of throo hundred millions of
pounds sterling Navies ho said wore Instru
ments of power better fitted to annoy the trade
ot other nations than to protect that of the na
tions t which they belonged At a later period
In his letter of criticism tho Jefferson
crtelsm oa Joftraon pro
ject for the construction of two hundred
conHlrlUnn hUldro1 gun
boats Mr Oallatin advanced the opinion that
It would bo an economical measure for every
commercial nation to burn their navy at tho
end of n war nod build a now one when
again at war were It not that I certain
amount of time Is needed for the oonntructlon
of large war vessels In the particular In
Blanco mentioned the soundness ot his judg
ment seemed vindicated by results for of 176
gunboitti constructed only 21 wore fit for ac
tual service two yearn afterward
In the second sosulon rf the Fifth Congress
Mr Gallatln advanced still further In his at
tetvPtH to define and limit tire prerogative of
tire President Mr Adnma had undertaken to
Increase tho number ol foreign missions and
to demand for porno ol them Increased appro
priations On the subject of diplomatic Inter
oonno with foreign countries Mr OMUttn
laid dow a thoory which bu never yat been
reduced to application but which the Improved
facilities of communication by mal and telegraph
graph have rendered eminently reasonable
While not proposing at one to elve up diplo
matic Intercourse with foreign countries he
thought that It should by degrees b allowed
to drop Commorolol Intorooursa ho 81d
could be ef otu lly cnrod tor by tine consular
system and It would b well for tho country
whon tho whole array ot resident ambassadors
and envoys should b recalled Mr Stevens
tolls u that this speech A the delight ot Mr
Gallntlna friends and that two thousand
copies of It wore circulated as tire best exposi
tion of republican doctrine Thoro can b no
doubt tlm t tho principle he laid down embodies
tho present essence ot the Democratic doc
trine and that whatever may have bon the
casontthe time Itwaa propoundodlt U noW
entirely practicable
None ot tho services rendered by Albort Gal
Latin should bo moro gratefully remembered
by the people ot this country than his unflinch
ing vehement and finally triumphant opposi
tion t tho Allen and Sedition bills the latter
ot which measures wn believed by Jefferson t
b aimed Uallatln In person In the dUous
lon of tho former mnaauro he was provoked
on one occasion Into th use of IntomporaU
and indecorous language But fierce u was
tho controversy excited In Congress and
throughout the country by these odlouB laws

with the Congress which witnessed the last
days of the Adams Administration and the

citizen ot foreign birth to hit plnco ot Chief

was to riMnlve the omen which had been mado
by Hamilton the second In importance namely

to resign it voluntarily against tire protest
ot his friends During his occupancy of
the Treasury hu was to place that department
for tho frt time on a strict business footing

Babuouf and ending with Proudhon special at
tention being naturally paid to Saint Simon
Proudbon and Louis Blanc But although this
section of Mr Elys treatise will prove useful
on account of the ground covered by an analy
sis which is at once compendious and clear It
cannot lx bald that the theories of tho French
Socialists wore unknown or Inaccessible to the
mass of American readers Such if not the
case however with the works of tho
great oxpoundors of German socialism
and tho capital value of this book

with which the doctrines enunciated by Rod

of their views wan previously accessible in Eng

although some knowledge of iris writings Is In
dispensable to an appreciation of Marx him
self and much moro of Lassalle and ot other
men who have been propagandists rather than
original thinkers Wo cannot hotter exemplify
tho utility of this portion of tbo volume than
by marking some of tho main points In

Btudonta of the subject that there aro

some of irit countrymen recently arrived In i
this country to Investigate the question

Aa to the Jewish Question Husslnns hold
quito different views The majority demand
that the rights of Jews shall bo Rtlll further ra
strlotcd while a small minority hold that all
the artificial ban separating Jowluli subjucu
from the real of the Czara subjects are ua
wise unjust ami pregnant with new dancers
and should bo abolished altogether This view
Is I logical and wise but it la very doubtful
whether the Commission now revising the
laws regulating the civil rights ot the Jew
will approve It Meanwhile the Jewish and f
proJowlah journal on one side and the anti
Jewish journals on the other are carrying on
the most unseemly and Insulting discussion
in language that can hare DO pinto In decent
literature It la evident that the Jewish quos
Lion has reached a phase when not Rood judg
ment but passion prevails in the debate
Impartial newspapers have produced abun
dant proofs that under the present circum
stances the Cznrs Government is Impotent to
bring about ponce and good will between lu
Hebrew and Christian subjects There are
millions upon millions ot peasants Ignorant
Illiterate and often in need ot money to pay
taxes and there are thousands upon thousands
of Jews smart partially educated but de
prived by law of many opportunities of making
