THE NEW YEAR AND US
What of the new year?
What of us?
It is more than likely that 1922 will be a momentous year in history. It
will write "success" or "failure" over the arms conference in Washington.
It will probably see the calling of an economic conference for the purpose of
stabilizing the finances of the world. It will give us a clearer insight into
the ultimate intentions of the allies relative to the eleven billions of dollars
they owe us--whether or not these foreign obligations are to be considered
of any greater value to us than mere scraps of paper.
It will see the sentiment of this country crystalizing for or against the
four-ply alliance thrt has been signed between the United States, England,
France and Japan. It will see this country well on the road to normalcy or
facing a long period of business stagnation. It will see the nations of the
old world emerging from their misery or crumbling into decay. It will see
humanity again on the verge of triumphancy or prostrate at the feet of de
struction. Much will occur within the year.
These great questions of world import may not be decided by the people
of this community, other than such weight as the voices of a few may have
among the many. But though we are few in numbers, we yet are not with
out obligations. A solemn duty confronts ps, as a collective community and
as indiivduals. That duty is to labor to,,vrd the restoration of normal con
ditions in the business world, to foster a greater spirit of patriotism and
fidelity to our country, and to lend our aid to the salvaging of such as is left
of the civilization of the world.

"MARSE" HENRY WAT'ERSON,
SOLDIER AND NOTED EDITOR.
Henry Watterson was one of the
last of the old time personal journal
ists. More than r half a century his
editorials, with their brilliant, origi
nal and phrase-making composition,
attracted wide attention. The~f were
commented on and copied by the press
of the nation. Besides his power in
molding public opinion through his
editorials, Watterson's influence is
credited with having shaped the plat
form of the Democratic party in more
than one presidential campaign.
It was perhaps through an accident
that Henry Watterson pursued jour
nalism. Early in life he evinced un
usual musical talent and his parents
encouraged it. A mishap that crushed
his left thumb, leaving that memiber
stiff, caused the musical education to
be abandoned. as the piano was his
A natural bent for writing devel
oped but even in this Mr. Watterson
was seriously handicapped, as illness
in infancy had affected his vision. His
first journalistic experience was gain
ed on a Washington, D. C., newspaper
as musical and dramatic critic. His
father, Harvey M. Watterson, for
twenty years preceding the outbreak
of the War between the States, was
a Representative in Congress from
Tennessee. It was during this time
that Henry Watterson laid the foun
dation for an elaborate knowledge of
national affairs, he spending much of
his time associating with party lead
ers of that period and in close con
tact with the operation of the gov

Watterson's course in letters and
journalism in the national capital
was interrupted just as he attained
his majority by the outbreak of war.
With his father, he opposed the se
cession movement, but upon the de
elaring of hostilities, he returned to
his Tennessee home and joined the
army of the Confedcracy. He served
throughout the war, except for a per
iod of ten months, when he establish

aide to the famous calvary leader,
General Nathan Bedford Forrest, and

"The Rebel" instantly achieved
great popularity. The paper was out
spoken and independent, forecasting
in many things the Louisville Cour
ier-Journal, a liaeal descendant to fol
low it within a few years.
Abraham Lincoln was said to be
the great passion of Watterson's life.
His lecture on "Lincoln" was deliv
ered in hun:!rcds of cities and it was
his pride to tell of calling on Lincoln
the morning of his inauguration and
of standing beside him at the cere
"Let no Southern rin point his fin
ger at me," Mr. Watterson said, "be
cause I cannonize Lincoln, for he was
the one frai:!d we had at court when
friends were most in, need."
Makes Plea for Harmony.
When Watterson founded the -Jour
nal he made a plea for harmony in
the South. Thoroughly reconstructed
himself, lie urged all to follow his
course in complete submission to the

"Tariff for Revenue Only," a p~hrase
which he coined, and which finally
wvas adopted by the Democratic par

Cleveland (luring the latter's first ad
ministration as President, but oppos
ed Cleveland's third nomination.
Hlis service as a public official was
confincd to a factional term in Con
gress. I Ie accepted a seat there in
1876-7 at the winies of Samuel .J.
Tilden, wvith whom he was closely al
lied. Mr. Watteraon refused renomina
tion for the full term. Frequently
urged to run for high office lie alwanys
"I shall stay where I am. Office is
not for me. Beginning in slaver~y to
end m i poverty, it is odlious to my
sense of freedom."
From 1872 to 1 892 however, hie sat
at all national c'onventions of the Dem
ocratic party as delegate-at-large from
Kentucky. le presided over the con
v'en tion that nominmated Tilden in 1876
and was chairman of the platform
commnittees in those of 1880 and 1888.
Attitude Towards Bryan.
Mr. Watterson opposedI William
.Jennings Bryan in hiis candidacy for
P'resident in 189ti, b~ut in 1900t the
Courier-Journal gave hiim luke-warm
support. In 1908, however, what Mr.
Watterson denominated as the "free
silver heresy" heing "as dead as Af
rican slavery," in the Unitedl States,
lie became a war~m supporter of Bryan.
Mr. Watterson also dlevoted some
of his editorial attention to social
queations. lie once made a savage at
tac'k on Newv York society wvomen,
calling them, "a flock of unclean
hirds." Hie accused themn of a fondness
for display that ruined the men, and
a love of c'iamipagne and bridge that
eventually ruined their morals.
His dashing atyle gave currency to
"Light Horse Hnrry,"' and "Henry of
Navarre." Tlae most piopuilar nickname
and the most frequently used, how
ever, was pla in "'Marse Henry."
