for final burial. Tho ceremony was
an Imposing one, the dignitaries of

as representatives from all tho great
powers and many other nations. On
all sides were evidences of mourn

A gruesomo evidence of that lovo
was the sulcldo of Gen. Nogl and his

Tho suicide of tho General and the
Countess, his wife, was in accord

And the Governor can teach the East much much as to cam.
palgn methods, much that had bettor remain untaught, if some of his
utterances are to bo taken as oxamples of his spirit aud tho spirit of
the party that he represents.
Addressing tho Progressive convention in tho president's home
state, he is said to havo characterized Mr. Tnfl as "the most humiliat.
ing spectacle in American History,"
Gov. Johnson is a fire-brand, lie is not a progressive nor docs
he seek progress. lie is a fomentor of revolution. His purpose is
to infiamo the passions of the volatile and irresponsible, of tho ignor
ant and the prejudiced. He is the kind that schools anarchists and
encourages men of ungoreruod passions to assassinate presidents.
Cautious criticism in not to be condemned, but when criticism is
lowered to the plane of vulgar abuse it i not criticism. It serves no
wotlhy purpose. Not only is Governor Johnson doing great injustice
to a great man, but ho is bringing into disrepute the highest office in
The Governor haa been too neighborly with Mexico. He has im
bibed Mexican methods and Mexican ideals. And his campaigning
and the campaigning of those like him, if successful, can have nothing
but Mexican results.
How long will it be until wo shall not be electing presidents but
shall witness the spectacle of the highest effice in the land going to
the most ambitious the ono who, though defeated, can rally around
him a largp.coterio of the disaffected and other reckless adventurers.
One of Governor Johnson's own followers characterizes his
onslaught on the President as "the utterance of a man utterly disti
tute of the attributes of a gentleman."
It is consoling to remember that our worst abused havo been our
