"We nre npt to sbut our eyes against a
palnful truth, or a disngreonblo truth, or
a truth that docs not BUlt us or our con?

not only from tho world but even from

who nro necklng after tho exnet truth,
whntovo.r tho truth may bo and whatever
tho question Involved, mon nnd women
who deslrn to know tho truth nnrl who
hnvo tho bravery to own nnd dcclrtro lt.
Ono of thoso men is Mr. Chnrles-Frnnels
Adams. of Mnssachusotts. Ho was
b orn nnd rearr-d III New England; ho was
a soldler lu tho wur bctwoon tho States,
ho fought for thn fing of tho Unlon, and
ho did what ho could to crush tho arnis
of tho Southern Confederacy nnd whlp
tho South back Into tho Unlon. JIo wns
born wlth prejudlco against thn South
nnd was rehred la an atinosphdrq of
abollllon and lulolornnco. Yet ln these
days ho hns put asldo his projudlce, ho
hns taken off tho bcclqudcd glnsses, ho
has aearched tho pugca ot lilstory for
tho truth; and havlng found It he has
Bt'ood up In nll soctlons of tbe land und
told it plnlnly und bravcly.
Flrst oC all ho publlshed the1 truth that
tho prlglnuj Rtntes went Into the Unlon
rcservlng to th'einsolves tholr sovorelgnty
and their rlght to wlthdraw; nnd again,
thnt up to 182T> tho great mnjorlty of tho
peoplo of tho Indlvldunl Statos woro
ugrecd thnt a man's flrst duty was to
h|s Slato; nnd thnt oven pp to 1801 It
was a question which every man had to
decido for himself whether it wns hla
duty to east his lot wlth tho Unlon or
with his native Stiuo. "Aml whiohovoi
way ho dccldcd," added Mr, Adams, "ho
Then ho stond up beforo an audience In
tho State of Now York nnd paid a trlbuto
to General ltohcrt 13. I.co and the men
who followed hlni, suiylng that ns a

nppreclnte this noblo trlbuto, not merely
bs a trlbuto to tho South's great ropro
sontutlvo, but, ns wo had said, as tho
etatonient of a great (ruth, General.Lee
was a mnn ot prlneiplc, a man of con
Bclcnco, a man of dcep-soatod convlctlons,
nnd whllo ho proved himself to ho a

savo as consclcnco nnd convictlon dl
Yeclod. H wns not wlth him a moro
niatter of cholce us to Whqthor ho wuuld
ciust his lot wlth tho North or wlth Vir?
ginia. Suoh a man had no cholce. Thero
wns no question in his mlnd ns to when
his duly lay nnd whlthor duty cnllcd
blni thlthcr ho wus compelled to go. Hnd
hu dono othorwlse, hud ho drawn his
sword In defenso of tho Unlon nnd
against his klth and klu ln Virginia ho
had not been Hobert K. Leo of honor nnd
famc. Ho would havo beon a trnltor,
tho worst sort of a trnltor, a traltor not
only to his State, but lo himself.
But ho was mado of nobler stuff, nnd
Mr. Adams has been noblo und bravt
enotigh to sny that of tho same stuff wns
mado Georgo Washington and all other
patrlotlc Vlrginlnns. lt wns tho nalur.il
product of Southern prlneiplc, \Vo know
that tho South would bo vindlcatod by
nnd by, but thero waa a timo when wo
did, not think tho vlndlcatiou would co

trulh is out nt lnst and lt Is racognteed.
Charles FranclB Adams, ono of tlio for*
most men of Now England, lms doclurcd
that secessloii waa coiiHtllutlonnl, thnt
the men of tho South dccldcd rlght when
they decided to east their lot with tliplr

We note that James Hayes, tho negro
