THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, WEDNESDAY JUNE 10. 1912.
PRESIDENT TAFrS TOUCHING TRIBUTE TO MAJOR ARCHIBALD W. BUTT.
Major Archibald W. Butt oil one of the heroes of the Titanic He was President Taft'a military aid. After
Major butt's death the president, w th tears in his eyes and faltering voice, made him the subject of one of the
most heartfelt euleg.es eer pronounced ever a gallant man. prais.ng his manhood, his courage, hie loyalty, hie
"Everybody knew Archie ee 'Archie.'" eeid the president. l cannot go into a box at a theater, I cannot tarn
around in my room. I cannet go eevfwhe'e, without expecting to see his smiling face or to hear his cheerful voice
in greeting. The life of the preeident ie rather isolated, and those appointed to live with hirr coma much closer
to h.m than any one else. The bend is very close, and it is difficult to speak en such an occasion.
"Archie Butt s character was e.mple, straightf orward and incapable of intrigue. A clear sense of humor light
ened h.e life end those about him. Life was not for him a troubled problem. He was a soldier, and. when he was
appointed to serve under another, to that other he rendered implicit loyalty. I never knew a man who had eo
much self abnegation, so much eelf sacrifice, as Archie Butt.
"Occasions like the sinking of the Titanic frequently develop unforeseen traita in men. tt makes them heroee
when yeu don't expert it. But with Archie it was just aa natural for him to help those about him aa it wae
for him to ask me to permit him to do eomethmg tor some one for me.
"He ah on the deck of the Titanic exactly what he was everywhere. He leavee a void with those who loved
him, but the circumstances of hie going are all that we would have had. and. while tears fill the eyoe and the
voice is choksd, we are felicitated by the memory of what he was."
Bsfo'e entering upon military life Major Bj.t 6,plaed high literary ability. The best of his stories ie "Both
Sides of the Shield," a splendidly written romance of love and war.

oeautiful scenes which were always
uppermost in my father's memory
whenever he talked of the south and
of the friends be had made there after
the bitter days of the campaign were
over. After leavtnp Washington every
tatlon became of Id teres t, and there
was no detail from which 1 did not
draw some moral. I had determined to
pierce the border states and seek for
the information I desired from the
laud where tbe palme'.to, tbe pine and
the lire oak live side by 6ide. The
windows of the car had been raised
and through them came tbe bracing
winds from the Blue Hldpe. and I could
catch occasionally the stranpe minor
notes of the negroes at work !n the
fields. I was alive to every Impres
sion, and I took out my notebook to
chain in my memory some of tbe pass
That evening I finis tied my first let
, ter and mailed It from the train.
When I reached Atlanta 1 made In
quiry as to the best means of reacb
; lnp sonit of the outlying counties,
i where 1 couid study the social and
educational conditions of this people
out of the beaten tracks and away
from the thriving centers through
whi-h i had passed, and which, ac
cording to my preconceived opinions,
were the result of northern capital or
New Kneland energy. I remained In
the vicinity of this city for several
, days, milking Journeys into the eoun-
try and taking notes o the field bands
' and making inquiry as to the wages
paid and the n mount of labor perform
, ed 1 y the average hand My 7eal was
unabated, and 1 was on the point of
' putting all my figures Into a letter
when my enthusiasm received a check
' ttat came near causing me to throw
"p my assignment, which I would have
done without hesitation had I not fear
ed it would mean a summary dismis
, sal from the paier as well. On com
ing in from the factory district one aft
ernoon I found a letter from the man
aging editor. It said:

That was all, but it was sufficient to !
shutter my hopes ana discourage all
further attempts to mnl;e sure of the j
electoral vote of New England. Dts- j
cousoiate and with a vague sense of ;
my own Ignorance. I boarded a train ;
that night b.iuud somewhere in s (
southerly direction 1 did not know j
and 1 did not care where. i
When 1 awoke the next morning the ;
odor which tilled every crevice of the I
car toid me that I had enter d the pine
teit of tieorzla during my s'eep. I
threw up my window and inhaled great
drafts of fresh air I felt tnvlgorst- ;
ed and ready to carry ot my assign
meht. no 11, unci vi.(t. .1 me. the
farther Into rtie iine forests and out
of the re;b of ixiannging editors. I
thought. !.' e better, loiter in the day
I left the main road end took the nar- :
row gauge line which I wag told fol
lowed the bed of the Savannah river
ar.d pnsed through several of the
n:ot historic counties of the state, rich
tn memories of the rast and peopled
mostly by remnants of tbe oid colonial
and ar,t-le!lum families, who had in '
the pa-t made them the most influen
tial centers of the state.
The railroad wended Its way thronph
a beautiful rolling country erudded .
with i.ines and cedars The wild flow- '
ers frrew up to the Tery tracks, and j
the earth seemed carpeted with soft.
velvety moss. Through the pines I !
caught Flimpses occasionally of state- j
ly o'd residences, with their gardens
unkempt and the we-iis prowlng in
wiid profusion. Where tte fences bad
fallen they had been left to decay, but 1
the fields were r'owed and showed
signs of cultivation at a cost of great
la t or
We sfopr-eil ar seveml stations, and
.trouad each there was an air ot hapty h
indolence tbat lent a charm to the n
lapidated wooden sheds which stood
for depots, and la front of these there
was always to be seen some antiquat
ed wagon or carryall. These latter
were invariably filled with half prowti
boys and girls laughing and chattering
like a lot of magpies as the train pull
ed op. They were there presumably
to get tbe mail, but as 1 thought more
likely to exchange bits of gossip and
to find out what was "going on" down
tbe road I gave myself up to listen
ing to their chatter, and 1 found my
self wondering as tbe train would start
again on its slow Journey bow many
of these bright and Innocent faces
there would be at the next station to
greet us. It would indeed take some
time. 1 thought, to get a proper esti-
mate of these people, whose clotbea
j would Indicate tbat they belonged to
; the farming and laboring classes, but
i whose conversation, accent and gram
matical phrasing would lead one to be
lieve they represented a class better
educated and with more culture than
I one is likely to discover Id such out of
tbe way counties as those through
j w hich we were uow passing.
I By degrees the few passengers wbo
: bad taken this train got off. and to
j ward the end of the journey there was
i no one in the coach but a yenerable
' looking oid gentleman and myself, lie
; wore a long frock coat and an old
: fashioned silk hat. He represented a
type I had begun to know and recog
: nize. He seemed well known along
i the road. It waa "Howdy. Colonel
TurpinV" at every station now, and
: some one always asked. "How's 1-1-'
len?" His clean shaven face would
wreatb itself Id a smile as invariably
; be would make answer:
I "Ellen's well, but between tbe cook-
Ing and the music she bas little time
j left to frolic with you young people."
! "It's ber own fault." said some one
j at one of tbe stations, "for all she bas
I got to do is to choose which farm she
i prefers, that of Squire Hawkins or Jim
Wadley's Uollyburst" At this there
j was a burst of merriment from the
young people in tbe wagons.
"Don't be petting such notions In
my Ellen's bead just now," be would
laugb back. "Ellen and Bud have their
old father and mother to look after for
awhile yet. to say nothing of the
"Bud can do that by himself." called
out one youth Then be suddenly turn
ed red and bung bis bead as be saw
tbe girls casting their eyes from one
to tbe other aud laughing.
"1 dare say there are others of us
wbo have used tbat argument to Ellen
before this and many a time." added
another boy scarce out of bis teens,
"so you need not bother to repeat It.
By the time onr" train had started
again 1 bad determined to Introduce
myself to the colonel, for I saw mate
rial In bim for a letter. By way of
opening operations I asked bim tbe dis
tance to Oglethorpe station, where I
had expected to leave the train.
"About five miles, sir." he said, and.
witb a courteous, old fashioned bow
across the aisle, he added, "May I ask
If you are bound there?"
I told bim tbat was my destination.
He then continued:
"if it be not too Impertinent, may I
ask you what takes you to such an
out of the way place? Yon are not a
lawyer from Atlanta, are you, sir?"
There seemed to me to be a note of
alarm in the question, and be appear
ed greatly relieved and his face bright
ened visibly when 1 told bim that I
was not a lawyer and was visiting
Georgia for the first time. I soon lenrn
ed the cause of bin anxiety as to tbe
matter of my profession, for In a con
fidential whisper, which could bare
been beard throughout the car bad
there been others In it, he said:
"When smart looking young men like
you come up this road they bring trou
ble with them usually and aa often
leave more behind, sir."
"How is that?" determined to hur
Don't smart looking
men often come up this road?"
"Hardly ever but to foreclose some
poor devil's mortgage." Here he be
gan to laugb Immoderately, and when
bis risiliies bad subsided sufficiently
to explain, for I was somewhat sur
prised at bis sudden burst of merri
ment, he said:
"I'll bet you a pine knot all sawed
up against a bushel of potatoes tbat at
a half dozen stations Deis are being
made right now that you have come up
to foreclose the mortgage on the tMnes
That's my place, vou know. I'll have
a good laugh at rbeir expense when 1
go down the road again."
"Are all the plantations aoout' tiere
mortgaged?" 1 asked.
"Mostly," be said. "1 know my plan
tation is, and heavily, too, but most of
the planters don't like to acknowledge
it. Old Hill Uolilns vowed bis wasn't
for ten years, and then one day a fel
low looking about like you came np
and closed bim out. He was so asham
ed at being caught in a lie that he
moved out of the county and has never
been back since."
"1 sincerely hope. sir. that your
frankness la tbe mattV may be re
warded by an indefinite delay in tbe
foreclosure proceedings." I said, deep
ly touched at tbe honest avowal of the
oid gentleman, who. I saw, felt much
doeper on the subject than he would
trave liked me to think.
"I don't know." be said: "I can't
tell. Up to this time Bud baa been
ble to meet the Interest regularly,
snd as long ca be does that I suppose
we have little to fear."
