SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE

These Tliree American Citizens.
One of the coming' men of the Republican
party, and now much spoken of for speaker
of the Fifty-first congress, Is the Hon.
Joseph G. Cannon, of the Fifteenth Illinois
district, embracing the counties of Cham
paign, Coles, Douglas, Edgar and Ver
milion. There is not a politician in the
United States who has had a more regular
and normal grow tb than this now prominent
member of the Dlinovs delegation. He wa3
born ilav 7, 136, near the historic battle
field of Guilford Court House, m Guilford
county, X C, and was reared and educated
among the Quakers. At an early age, how
ever, he was taken thence by his parents to
Parks county, Ind., where his father, Dr.
Cannon, was long and favorably known. He
received a large part of his early education
at the common schools of the county, and a
somewhat advanced course at Bioommgdale,
a few miles from his father's residence.
"While Joseph was still a lad his father, re
turning late one mjht from a visit to a
patient, as drowned in what was popularly
called a "sinkhole" in Sugar creek, or Rocky
river, and the boy, throw n upon his own re
sources thereafter, made his own way m life.
Removing to Vermilion county, Ills., he
studied law, located at Danville, took to
politics naturally and became a very ardent
Republican when that party was formed, as
his education had made him a strong op
ponent of slavery. Indeed, it may be said
parenthetically that in every part of the
western states the middle and higher class of
emigrants from tne old slave states, and es
pecially tho Quakers from Xorth Carolina,
were the most ardent anti-slavery men. As
was said by one of their number in Indiana,
they were present when the Republican
party was bora, as?istd m forming it and i
were ready for it long before it came.
Neither history nor tradition go back to n
tune when Guilford county, N. C, was not
an abolition stronghold. As early as the
date of tho ilecklenburg declaration of in
dependence, to wit, May 120, 1773, the pio
neers of the upper western part of the state
of 3orth Carolina expressed their opposition
to tho system of African slavery. At tne
close of the revolutionary war, and for tho
ensuing fifty years, the Quaker population of
Guilford county gradually increased until it
became in a sense

sentiment, and from that tun until the out
break of the war the Quakers beldom faded
to renew their testimony against slavery.
From that pct.on an immense emigration
-ent to the vicmity of Richmond, Ind., and
later to Hendricks county and to Parke, the
new county of the Wabash, wnich now con
tains about COO Quaker voters. Reared
amid such surroundings and educated by
such a class of people, it is plain that Mr.
Cannon was both by inheritance and convic
tion an ardent anti-slavery man.

t jwnshms would probably show two-thirds
of the same family namns. Still more marked
are tho personal traits, the intellectual tend

ITr. Daniel Hand, whoe gift for the edu

yars old ho went with his uncle, Daniel
Meigs, whom he succeeded in business, to
