THE ILLUSTRIOUS WENDELL PHILLIPS
THE FOLLOWING LECTURE DELIVERED BY MR.
THOMAS B. O'BRIEN, BEFORE THE WILLIAM
HALE THOMPSON REPUBLICAN CLUB OF THE
RtiN. WILLIAM A. BITHER, WARD CONIMITTEEMAN,
THE ELOQUENT SPEAKER WAS INTRODUCED BY
MR. CHARLES C. ROE, ASSISTANT STATE'S AT
" TORNEY OF COOK COUNTY.
Wendell Phillips, philanthropist and
statesman, was born in Boston, Mass.,
in-1811. He graduated from Harvard
in 1831, and was admitted to the bar
in 1834. He studied law at Cambridge
under the renowned Story, and was
especially fond of those aspects and
principles of law which presented it as
a science as the, "Source- and Seat of
Human Justice." George Wm. Curtis,
tho distinguished editor of Harper's
Weekly during tho Civil War, in an
eulogy or Mr. yniliips, said: "As a
law student doubtless the sirens sang
to him as the noble youth of every
country and time. If musing over
Coke and Blackstone in the full con
sciousness of ample powers and of for
tune's opportunities, he sometimes fore
cast the future; he saw himself sue
ceeding Fisher Ames, Harrison Gray
Otis and Baniel Webster. Bising from
the Bar to the Legislature; to the
Senate of the United States and from
the Senate who knew whither; Wen
dell Phillips was the idol of society,
tiie applauded orator, the brilliant
champion of the elegant repose and
the cultured conversation tof Jfass.
The delight of special ease; tho re
fined enjoyment of taste, in letters and
art; opulent leisure, professional dis
tinction, cratifie.d ambition. All these
came and whispered to the young stu
dent. And it is the force that can
tranquilly put aside such blandishments
with a smile and accept alienation, out
lawry, ignominy and apparent defeat,
if need be, no-less than the courage
which grapples' with poverty and out
lawed hardship and climbs over them to
worldly prosperity which is the test of
the finest manhood.
In 1839 he threw up his law prac
tice because he- could not conscien
tiously swear allegiance to tire Federal
Constitution, believing it an unrighte
ous compact between freedom and sla
very. When the Constitution was rati
fied it contained a clause which allowed
the slave masters to count three-fifths
of their slaves in the basis of National
representation; another clause which
made provision for the return of fugi
tive slaves throughout tho Union; and
another clause recognizing the slave
trade for twenty years from date of its
adoption. While those clauses remained
in the Constitution the Abolitionists
called it" A League with Death and a
Covenant with Holl."- 3dr. Phillips
refused to recognize the authority of
the Constitution and really advocated
disunion up to the time of the Civil
War; ''.''" -
With the Garrison wing of the anti-
slavery party he-favored sustaining the
Government j- foreseeing that the end of
tho conflict would be the freeing of the
slaves. After -his death in 1884, the
Mayor and Board" of Councillors of his
natlvo dty paid tribute to his memory
ia prose and' poetry. The poetrical
eulogist commemorated -hin in. a just
recognition ' as follows:

his windows were open and the sound .
of unusual disturbance drew him from -his
office. He hastened along the street -and
suddenly, a stone's throw froxn-the
scene of the Boston Massacre, in the
very shadow of jthe Old State House,
he beheld in Boston, a spectacle that , l
made him blush for his native city. '
He saw American women insulted for
befriending Iheir innocent sisters whoeo -
children wero sold from their arms. y
He saw an American citizen, William
IJoyd Garrison, assailed for defending
rran 's. right to Liberty which was ia
herent and inalienable. Himself s
citizen soldier of the State, he looked
to see the majesty of the people main
taining tho authority of the law, but
to his own startled surprise ho saw
that the rightful defenders of law
against the mob were themselves- the
mob. The city whose dauntless free
speceh had taught a country to be in
dependent, he saw rising a parricidal
hand against its parent Liberty. It
was enough. As the jail doors closed
upon Garrison, to save his life, Garri
son and his cause had won their most
powerful-and renowned ally. T7ith the
setting of that October sun vanish en
forever the career of prosperous ease;
the gratification of ordinary ambition,
which the genius and accomplishment
of Wendell Phillips had seemed to f oro-
LtelL Yes, the long awaited client had
como at lastr scarred, scorned and for
saken, that cowering and friendless
client was wronged and degraded hu
manity. Already tho Boston boy felt
what he afterwards saidr
"I love, inexpressibly, those streets
of Boston, over which my mother led
my baby feet. And if God grants me '
time enough I will make them too pure
for the footsteps of a slave."
But it was not until E. P. Lovejoy
fell defending his Press at Alton, HL, .'
in November, 1837, that an American
citizen was killed by a raging mob for "
declaring in the free 8tate of Illinois
the right of innocent men and women ,',
to their personal liberty. This tragedy,
like the death blow at Charles Sumner,
In the Senate Chamber twenty years'
afterwards, awed tho whole country '
with a sense of vast and momentous
periL A meeting of protest was' called
for in Faneuil HalL It was denied . .-
admission but was afterwards recon- V, :
sidercd. When tho protest against ihe .'
murder of Lovejoy had been spoken,
the voice of a high officer, the Attorney
General of the State; solemnly sworn
to prosecute in the'name of Massachu
setts, declaring In Faneuil Hall; sixty
years after .tie Battle- of Bunker Hill,
and nmid a howlirlg storm of applause, '
that an American citizen who was put
to death by a. mad crowd of his fellow
citizens for flefendipg his right of
free speech, "died as the fool dieth."
When the cruel voice justified the mur- ". j
derexs-of Loyejby, Hie heart of young.
Phillips bnmcd'within him. '"'Such a ";
speech inr Faneuil Hall must be" -answered
