FIGITTIXa nt Fort Donclson,
Tennessee, begun fifty years
years ngo l'ob. 13 with tlio nt
tack of the Federal worships
upon tho Confederate xxntcr batteries.
It ended on tho 15th with n brilliant
charge by Federal Infantry which de
cided tho day. Tho fort stood on high
wound, somo of It 100 feet nlmvo tho
river, nnd covered nbont 100 ncres.
Upon each Hank of tho attacking ar
my's approach thoro xvns a creek (Hied
with backwater. Across the pap be
tween tho two streams General U. S.
Grant deployed his force of on or 27,000
men In thrco dlx-Hon. General J. A.
MeCIernnnd held tlio right with ono
division, General Low Wallace tho cen

ruary, and on the 13th the Carondclet
opcucn me uomunrument rrom tncsnfo

ono of tho 200 shots fired damaged tho
fort. It was ue.t to tho last shot tired
that day nnd entered nn embrasure,
disabling one gun nnd killing tho Con
federate elder of nrtlllery, Cnptnln
Dixon. Ono shot pierced tho Cnrondc
let, but did but llttlo dnmase. On the
11th tho ships steamed up to within
100 yards, nnd tho combntnnts on both
sides were bent upon n test of guns
nnd mottle. Tho onslaught by Footo's
.guns was terrille, nnd tho gunners In
tho water batteries of the foit began
to desert their pieces. Then In nn In
stant nil was changed. A solid shot
toro through tho pilot house of tho St.
Louis, killing the pilot and destroying
tho wheel. Flag Olllcer Footo was
wounded by the sldo of the pilot. An
other shot wounded tho pilot of tho
Louisville nnd cut tho tiller ropes.
Ironclads Put Out of the Fight.
Both Injuredjshlps dropped out of
tho fight, covered by tho Carondclet

turned about, badly cut up, nnd tho
Carondolet faced tho batteries nlono

hole of tho Cnroudelct, and tho entire

The Confedorntos, Jubilant over tho
easy ropulso of tlio gunboats, sent a
telegram to Itlchuipnd announcing a
great victory. It xvns soon followed
by ono telllug n different titory, al
though Grant retired to his blanket
that night thinking ho would have to
begin n long slego Tho troops luid no

soldlors had recklessly thrown nxvny
their overcoats and blankets, nnd It
wasf risky to hnvo fires within rango

Confederates hnd opened tho ball on

Gallant Charge to the Road,
General Smith headed tho attack to

He captured tho outer thics Of pits and
held on In the face of n Confederate di

Under the cover of Smith's charge up
to the fort Lew Wallace sent forward
to the captured Charlotto road the
demlbrlgado led by Colonel Morgan L.
Smith. Thete were but two regiments
in tho column, the Eleventh Indiana,
known tin "Wallace's youavos," and tho
Eighth Missouri. Both regiments hnd
been trained ns skirmishers. After ex
plaining to tho men the desperate na

words were drowned by their cheers
and cries of "Forward, forward!"
As tho skirmishers advanced up the.

Tho zouaves and Mlssomlnns sprot'd

JUST WHERE HE STANDS
In an Editorial In tho March 30 Issue
of Tho Outlook, Theodore Roose
velt Sets Forth "A 8hort Political
Creed" In tho Form' of Questions
and Answers, as Follows:
A goc frlond of mlrio who has boon
asked many questions about tho polit
ical philosophy which I endeavored to
Interpret and formulate. In my Colum
bus speech has put thoso 'questions In
tho form of a short catechism; and In
answering them I havo endeavored to
outllno tho philosophy. "(
What Is tho aim for which political
Progressives aro striving?
Tho promotion of gcnulno popular
government In America, tho dofonso of
human rights, nnd tho establishment
of social and Industrial Justlco, eo tbnt
ovcry forco In tho community may bo
directed toxvards securing for tho aver
ago man and avorago xvoman a hlghor
and bettor and fuller llfo In tho things
of tho body no less than thoso of tho
mind and soul.
Do you believe that the pursuit of
this aim requires the adoption of new
and radical principles?
No. I bellovo It requires a now and
radical application of tho old princi
ples of Justlco and common honesty,
which aro as ctcmnl as llfo Itself.
Now methods and now machlnory nro
needed for carrying theso principles
Into our national cxlstonco; and also
a broader sympathy,, bo that our Jus
tlco may bo generous and human, nnd
not merely legalistic.
Do you believe In a short ballot?
I do. I consldor it ono of tho most
Important methods to bo ndoptcd. I)y
tho "short ballot" I mean tho prln
clplo of electing fow mon to Important
offices and making moro administra
tive offices appolnttvo. This Is tho
method that Is pursued In our Federal
government. Tho peoplo hnvo nothing
whatover to fear from giving any pub
lic scrvnnt power so long ns they re
tain their own power to hold him ac
countable to thorn. You will got best
scrvlco whero you elect only a fow
men, each of whom has his dcflnlto
duties nnd responsibilities, and Is
obliged to work in tho. open so that
tho peoplo know who ho is and wbnt
Do you believe In direct primaries?
I do. In tho stato tho primary should
bo of tho simplest form (consistent
with preventing fraud) that will on
ablo each Individual' voter to net di
rectly on tho nomination of olectlvo
officers; in tho nation presidential pri
maries should bo oo fraraod that tho
voters may choso tholr dolcgatos to
tho national conventions, and nt tho
eamo tlrao express their prefcronco for
nominees for tho presidency. At tho
present moment our political machines
nro using tholr power to defraud tho
peoplo out of their right to mako nomi
nations. Do you believe In tho election of
United States senators by the peo
I do. I think tho peoplo aro Just ns
competent to elect United StntcB sena
tors directly ns thoy nro to elect gov
ernors or representatives In "congress
or fltato legislatures.
Do you believe In the Initiative or
Yes, undor certain dellnlto limita
tions. Action by tho lnltlatlvo or rof
orondum ought not to bo tho normal
way of legislation; I think tbo legis
lature should bo given nn entirely freo
hand. Hut I bellovo tho peoplo should
havo tho poxx-cr to reverse or supple
ment tho work of tho legislature when
ever It becomes necessary.
Do you believe In the recall?
I bellovo tho peoplo should bo pro
vided xvlth tho means of recalling or
un-olccting impoitant clcctlvo admin
istrative officers, to bo used only xvhon
thoro Is a widespread nnd genuine pub
lic fcolng for such a recall among a
majority of tho voters. I bollovo that
thoro Is scant nccosslty for using It In
connection xvlth short-term eloctlvo of
ficers. Do you believe In the recall of
I bellovo that tho ovlls which havo
led to tho very xvldcspread proposal
to apply" tho recall to Judges nro very
real. I bco no reason why tho pooplo,
If thoy are competent to elect Judges,
aro not also competent to un-elcct
them. I think the Judiciary should be
mado clearly to understand that thoy
represent Justlco for tho wholo people.
Personally, and having In vloxv tho suc
cess of the Massachusetts system, I
am nt present inclined to bellovo that
Jtidgca should bo appointive Then
wo can apply tho prJncJjplo of the re
call to tho appointive pawcr, In ad
dition, I would havo tho appolnttvo
.Judges removable; and. In feeling our
way to tho proper solutlou, I would
try having this dono by a majority
yoto of tho two houses of tho lcglsla
turo, as may noxy be dono under tho
Massachusetts law, xvhenovqr tho peo
ple (trough their representatives feel
that tho needs of the peoplo require
such removal. But this is merely my
preference; und, moreover, my prlrao
concorn Is with tho end, pot tho means.
I wish to seo good Judges put on tho
bonch nnd bad ones taken oft It. Any
system which In Its actual xvorklngs
accomplishes theso two ends ts a
goad system. I dp not wish to uso tho
recnll If it Is possible to avoid doing
so; but I would far rather have re
course to tho recall than contlnuo tbo
mresont oystom, which provides an Ira,
peachment remedy that In practice?
Inovpr wprks, nnd provides no efficient
way whatever for overruling Judicial
misconstruction of tho constitution.

ground that theso laxvs aro unconsti
tutional." This would nmount to a
simpler method of construing or
amchdlng tho Judicial Interpretation
of tho constitution xvherovor Buch In
terpretation becomes clearly udverso
to human rights. I bollovo, as I havo
said over and ovor'ngaln, that when
tho highest court of n, stato differs
from tho legislature of that stato on
tho quostlon of tho constitutionality of
a laxv vitally affecting tho conditions of
llfo nnd labor among wngo-carnors
tho peoplo should havo tho right to do
tormlno In an election whether tho
constitution xvhlch thoy havo framed
xvas meant by them to permit such a
laxv. This method cannot apply to
questions as to tho fcdoral constitu
tion; I havo mado this distinction
dlcnr in my Columbus Bpoech. Tho
Jurisdiction of tho United States Su
premo court concerning tho fcdoral
constitution must romnln supremo
ovor tho xvholo peoplo. Tho constitu
tions of tho separato statos aro in
dally process of making by tho peoplo
of thoso states, and I would therefore
vest In tho peoplo of each stato tho
final authority as to xvhat tholr stato
constitution should bo. I would not
mako tho pooplo tho final Judgo In
legal questions botxveen individuals,
but I would mako tho peoplo tho final
umplro in such a conflict as that abovo
outlined botxveen tho legislature and
tho Judiciary In any given Btato.
Tbo personal differences between
somo of my opponents and myself nro
only Incidents of n fundamental dif
ference of view. My opponents be
llovo, as many of tho founders of our
government bolloved, that tho peoplo
as a xvholo havo neither tho capacity
nor tho training to decldo questions of
broad governmental policy. Many of
our fathers thought that ,Jho peoplo
could not bo trusted to olect presi
dents or senators and therefore de
vised tho Eloctoral Collcgo, xvhlch wo
havo abandoned, and tho lcglslatlvo
method of electing senators, which wo
aro abandoning. My opponents think
that u special class, tho lcgnl class, Is
tho proper ono finally to dotcrmlno,
questions of basic political philosophy;
I bollovo that tho ultimate authority
rests in tho peoplo and must bo exer
cised by the peoplo. This of courso
does not mean that tho peoplo should
not employ exports to do tholr work
for them. For Instance, having se
lected tho president, tho voters should
glvo him full oxocutlvo power; but If
tho voters decldo that thoy want a
parcels post, thoy should expect him
to.mnko, xvlth loyalty to tholr doclslon,
tho best parcels post that can bo
mado; and thoy will not expect him
to decldo for them ns to whether they
aro to havo a parcels posf or not, In
laxv, having framed tho constitution
and tho statutes, they should chooso
tlio best Judgo that thoy can to carry
out tho provisions of tho constitution
nnd tho statutes; but it tho: decldo
that thoy want a xvorkmon's compensa
tion act, thoy ought to expect tho
Judgo to administer such an act, and
not to determlno xvbether a xx-orkmen's
compensation act Is good for them; or
not. It is none of tho Judge's busi
ness to say wholhor tho pooplo ougljt
to wish and to havo such an act; It Is
tho peoplo's buslnoss, and only tholrs.'
If tho peoplo decldo (as tho Canadians
havo decided) that it is a truo func
tion of government (o formulate and
rcgulato tho relations of organized
capital and organized labor, including
wages, hours, and conditions of xvorlc,
