JDoiiglm at I lie time wns United Stiitoa
'senator ami wiih not ouly tho Idol of
ibis iarty, hut wan generally regarded
js the hmst brilliant imlltli-lan and the
Ye-reiuost debater In the land. Lincoln
Wran little known outside of Illinois.
(While he had the unanimous support
tof IiIk party in the stale for United
states wiuitor. his friends had uilsglv
las; that he would not lie utile to meet
Xhe great Douglas. Lincoln himself
'fcrought about, the debates, however.
tMcausv he wanted to reach the Oenm
rat with his argument,
i There were seven of tho debate, tho
Jtrst iH-currlug nt Ottawa, suyenty mllen
'southwest of Chicago, on A'B. 21; the
econd at' VrecMirt. in tho extrfinr?
vorta of thn state, nil day later; the
third nt .loncsboro. In almost the ex
grease south, on Kept. 15; tho fourth at
Xfearlestou. In tho east central portion
C the state, three days Inter; tho llfth
at Gnlcxbtirg, In the western part of
ttbe stale, on Oct. 7; the sixth nt QuIii
ry. on tho bank of tho Mississippi.
Oct. 13. and the Inst nt Alton, a short
distance north of St. Louis, Oct. 15.
. The nrrongoments wcro that Benntor
'Douglas should open with an huilr, Mr,
Lincoln following with nn hour and a
rfcalf and Douglas cloning with half an
3ioor on (he lirnt day Lincoln open Ins;
Jwlth nn hour. Douglas following with
n hoar and n half and Lincoln closing
twltti half nn hour on the second day
ad thus alternating regularly.
All or thlH Ik now a twice told tale.
.jet It Ih one In which thu Interest I
lerennlnl. Historians urn generally
agreed that these debute not only
leave Mr. Lincoln thu llcpubllcnu noiiil
tMtloa for the presidency, but forced
'Dougls Into u position where to win
the enntorshlp he had to nlleuntc
)Katiern Miipport. thus dividing the
fleir.t.eruey In 18(10 and makluir Lin
jtwIn'H election possible.
The debates naturally rrented tro
fnemlotm excitement, and tho erowd.t
isrere record breakers for that' day,
f Douglas U'can u a Jaunty veltl, and
'his reference to Lincoln were, patron
lUlag. IIih opponent roHpouded with
tatrnlgut und serlniu argument, refits
'lag to resort to the wit for which ho
"wntj famous. Mr, Lincoln's, chief,
wiMns wore logic and clarity of
Matenent, and befoiv tho atriiKKlo was

&e prrsentcMl the Uiubllcau isisllloii
challeiiKed nation wide attention.
The contrast between the two spoil U-
era wns so marked as to bo almost
ludicrous. OotiKlas was as short and
wavy as Lincoln was tall and lean,
iMniRlas' voice was deep, and his
enunciation slow and somewhat pon-
. Serous. Lincoln's video was pltclieU
