In tnt-'- canvasses as a politician Mr.
K; 'H not less great than when upon
;be l' eonuress. lie frequently made
aii.'I in; car his home. They would hear
rfc ;n one (lay in Portland and the next in
ihohunl'iT regions. He received dispatches
tt'l r'7irts in this car. He gave orders
i:ke a p-nerul on a field of battle. He
trrrciht himself into personal touch with
t'ir'the politicians and as many of the
ritizens as possible, and sonic of the anec
iotes which are told of the way in which
U lait sudden emergencies suggest bis
wrtiit-rful intellectual resources and the
rapidity f his mental operation.
Itlnine In the S-nte. .
His politieal intuitions were illustrated
:a im.tlier way at this time. He unqnes
jonah! y suggested the arrangement by
wtidi Senator Morrill, of bis state, was
trs.fvrrofl from the senate chamber to
GfK ral (irant's cabinet and Blaine was
arointed to .Morrill's seat and afterward
fiettfd. He felt that Lis day of Usefulness
tatte house was over. He hnd made his
rt'Til, and he believed that in the compar
ii.vc quiet of the senate chamber be would
IdI seme rest, and would also be able to
fairy on the politics which hnd the presi
!": al nomination of in view. His
!rr.iN always felt that bis life in the sn-
a irksome. He adapted himself to
ttf traditions of that somewhat lethargic
My. hut it the cost of some personal dis
e.'j..iw. (if course bis personality was felt
thiT but as a senator be added but little
li any to his repute.
W liile he did not enter npon the canvass
fir the presidential nomination of 1S80 in
:Ut dashing and inspiring way which char
.v!rizl him previous to 187B, yet he hud
the nnniitmtion in view and knew that he
"as th choice of a large part of the politi-f-i!

''iirtii-id could make no other choice than
Blaino for secretary of state, but what
lime's career as secretary and Garfield's
President would have been of course is a
ttatter of surmise. The impression has al
y9 been that Blaine's personality would
we dominated the administration. He
, however, pledged to Garfield to eup
irt him for a renomination.
Hluine In Emergency.
Mr Rlaine was with General Garfield at
ume he was assassinated, and from the
,'r,on 8hocl' bo then received he never

.ar!1,,ld tbrso who went to the
Krwmonal library used frequently to
Old vnh. quiet maner poring over
SDderi mw wareting the bookshelves,
and when tiny recognised bim thuyverc'
amazed that be w ho hnd won so great fme '
and was the idol cf so many Amcri us
should be content to conceal himself in
misty alcoves and ninong musty ooks.
Mr. Blaine, however, was permitting the
activity of bis wind to take another d ivc
tion. He had retired from Arthur's calv
inet, but could not be idle, and be decided,
therefore, to take up the literary pen and
descrilie political history as be bad x-cn
familiar with it. He rejoiced in tho work.
It was the first leisure if the library and
the study w hich be bad permitted himself
since school days.
When men knewtb.it Blaine was ant
ing this history they said, "Now he wil pay
off grudges, and now he will give us bis
opinion of men and events in his character
istic manner." In about two years the first
volume was issned, and it caused amaze
ment. Blaine t ho warrior was revealed as
Blaine the true historian, netold hist tory
in simple literary style, with great lucidity
and with such fairness us could only havo
been expected of a historian of a ft ture
generation. He wrote of his personal ene
mies as justly and ns kindly as of his
friends, and he made a contribution to po
litical history which is invaluable. The
sale of the work was enormous, an 1 its
profits made Mr. Blaine a very wealthy
man. He said himself that it was only
after the receipts of the sale of this book
that he realized the luxury of possessing
The pntbos of the story of General Grant
writing hi-t memoirs upon his death ted is
the most sublime of general history. But
it has seemed to many that there is tome
thing of pathos in the quiet resignation with
which Mr. Blaine returned to tho writing
of the second volume of his history aft -r his
defeat for '.be presidency in ISM. lit had
lost the pi-i.e when a change of 600 vott-s
could havegiven it to him. Theallitei ative
blunder of Bnrchard had defeated h tn in
his moment of vi- tory, ami if ever a politi
cian went through an experience whic i was
to test the strength Mr. Blaine did in those
winter days of ISSi and 1SS.1.
HeutU'ivd one word of protest a :d al
most of dospair, and t'oen he took up his
pen aj:nin, walking for an houror twn each
day over the crusted snow cf the Aujusta
Etrects that he might get exercise, and
when friends went t!ie;e to see him they
found him Blaine the man resigned, pa
ticnt, cheerful, but wish symptoms now
and then of the fire of genius which b lrnetl
within him. When his book was com
pleted he took Ins family to Kuroj e ntul
spent a year, and it was while there tl-.at,
acting in accordance with tho monitionsof
bis physician, be wrote the Florence letter
bidding his friends that they must net look
to him as a presidential candidnte, tor he
could not accept the nomination if it came.
Reluctantly and only after a second warn
ing from him did his friends heed him.
Had ho remained passive while abroad he
would have been nominated in tSSS.
With something of the serenity of the
youth of old age Mr. Blaine entered for his
second term upon the duties of secretary of
state. His mental genius asserted it?lf in
that office again, end while his ptysical
characteristics and the nrdorof his youth
had been subjected to change the power of
his mind was illustrated. He conducted
most brilliant diplomatic correspon lence,
and he formulated the most importantcom
mercial and financial policy which tl e gov
ernment had undertaken since thi) war,
with the single exception of the resuntption
of specie payments. He turned the atten
tion of the politicians from questions bred
of the war to those of the future and gave
promise of commercial prosperity txtween
the nations of the American continent.
It is probably upon this achievement that
Mr. Blaine relied for posthumous fan e. Ho
said when the politicians went to him urg
ing him again to he a candidate for presi
dent: "I was a candidate once. I was given
one opportunity, and I never enn say word
or do deed again w hich would look as
though I did not regard the verdict at that
time as final."
On the 4th of June, IS92, the onntry
was amazed to learn that Mr. BlaiDe had
that day resigned as secretary of ft ate in
a brief and very formal note, without a
word of explanation, and that Prsident
Harrison had accepted the resigns tion in
the fewest possible words. This is not the
place and now is not the time to conmant
or even Burmise, On Sept" 8, 18! 2, Mr.
Blaine addressed to Chairman Joseph H.
Manlcy, of the Maine Republican commit
tee, his last public letter on politics. On
the evening of Oct. 14, 1892, at Ophir Farm,
New V'orkixhc residence of Whitelaw Reid,
he made bis last speech.
Social and Domestic.
Those who knew James G. Blaine only as
a public man knew but half of bis life, and
that not the more attractive. Uisaicestry
was of the native American nobility, and
his own family life was of a strangely
varied character, a middle age of nn alloyed
happiness being followed by an evening of
almost continuous calamity and sorrow.
The Gillespies and Blames were p-xipleof
standing before the Revolution, and the
Colonel Blaine who was commissary gen
eral of tho northern department of Wash
ington's army was the secretary's grand
father. Meal Gillespie, his mother's father,
was a scholar of high standing and direct
ed his grandson's studies down to tba time
he entered Washington university. Equal
honor is due the ancestors of Mrs. Blaine,
who was Miss Harriet Stanwood, of a fam
ily that settled in Massachusetts in the
early days of that colony, and went thence
to Maine in the vanguard of its pioi.eers.
In Augusta, where herfather, Jacob
Stanwood, lived for many yean., Mrs.
Blaine was born in l&Si. Her father was a
well to do merchant, a man of in luence,
although never holding public offi He
took great pride in his daughter, v. ho was
a girl of line natural gifts, strength-med by
liberal education. Full of ambition and
force, so well displayed in nfter 1 f e, she
determined to make her own. wj y, and
hence started out as a school teac ter. It
was at Millersburg, Ky., that she first met
Mr. Blaine, then a professor at the i Iibtary
institute at Blue Biok Springs, twenty
miles distant. Tho world has heard enough
of the circumstances connected, wi ,h their
marriage. K fa a crm-l feature of Anieri-an
political campaigns that n -illier mini nor
woman is spared. Tlie sligi.test youthful
indifcervtion or even anerrorof judgment
Is magnilicd into a monstrous crime, and
in 18S4 lotli enndidatcssuffertd.
Tbe first child of this union, Stanwood
Blaine, died ii infancy. Threo sons and
two.daughters remained, and tbe father's
heart was wrapped up in them. Walker
Blaine, the oldest, was bis father's trusted
roropenion nnd assistant. Miss .Inr?:aret
Blaine was to her mother what Walker
was to his f,ither, but Miss Harriet was
best known to the public, possessing both
wit end beauty and all the social qualities
required for a hading lady in Washington
aociety. Of Kmmons and James G. Blaine,
Jr., the world knew but little Such was
the family when Secretary Blaine took ap
his residence in that historic house on La
fayette square that was bnt too well named
the House of Calamity. The tragedies pre
viously enacted there are a part of the na
tion's history, and tho Blaines suffered ter
ribly. First came the death of a daughter
(then the wife of Colonel Coppinger), and
but two weeks later Walker Blaine died
even before the country had learned that
he was seriously ill. The marriago of
James G. Blaine, Jr., a mere boy, to Miss
Marie Xevius, wns followed rapidly by his
divorce and a painful series of recrimina-

ofthe facts. Only Mrs. Walter Damrosch, j
nee Margnret l'daine, her sister Harriet and ;
James ii. lilninc, Jr.. remain to comfort i
their afflicted mother. When the heat en

ine noblest eulogy on the departed i
atesman's political career nnd principles
was that uttered by Colonel Hubert (J. In
persoll in the ISepublican national conven
tion of ISTfl. It is therefore submitted here
entire as the fittest ending of this sketch:
Massachusetts may be satisfied with the loy
alty of Ik-njamin H. Bristnw. So am I. Bnt if
nny man nominated by this convention cannot
carry the state of Massachusetts, I am not sat
isfied with the loyalty of that 6tate. If the
nominee of this convention cannot carry the
grand old commonwealth of Massachusetts by
75.O00 majority. I wonld advise them to sell out
Faneuil hall as a Democratic headquarters. I
would advise them to take from Hunter Hill
that old monument of Kiory.
The Republicans of the United States de
mand as their leader in the great contest in
187G a man of intelligence, a man of integrity, a
man of well known and approved political
opinions. They demand a reformer after as
well as before the election. They demand a
politician in the highest, broadest and best
sense a man of superb moral courage. They
demand a man acquainted with public affairs,
with the wants of the people, with not only the
requirements of the hour, but with the de
mands of the future. They demand a man
broad enough to comprehend the relations of
this government to tbe other nations of the
earth. They demand a man well vcrsed.ln the
powers, duties and prerogatives of each and I
every depart mer.t of this government.
They demand a man who will w-redly pre
serve the financial honor of the I'uited States:
one who knows enough to know that the na
tional debt must be paid through the prosperity
of this people: one who knows enongh to know
that all the financial theories in the world can
not redeem a single dollar: one who knows
enough to know that all the money must be i
paid not by law, bnt by labor, one who knows '
enough to know that the people of the United
States have tho industry to make the money
and the honor to ray it over jut as fast as tbey
The Republicans of the United Slat -a de
mand a man who knows that prosperity and
resumption when they come must come to
gether; that when they come they will come
hand in hand through the golden harvest fields:
band in hand by tho whirling spindles and the
turning wheels; hand in hand past the open
furnace doors; hand in hand by the flaming
forges: hand in hand by the chimneys filled
with eager fire greeted and grasped by th
conntless sonn of toil.
This money has to be dug out of the earth

The Republicans of the United States want
man who knows that this government should
protect every citizen at home and abroad; who
knows that any government that will not de

a disgrace to the map of the world. They de
mand a man wbo Oelievea in the eternal sepa
ration and divorcement nfchnrchand school.
They demand a man whose political reputation
Is spotless as a ttar; bnt they do not demand
that their candidate shall have a certificate of
moral character signed by a Confederate con
gress. Tbe man who has tn full, heaped and
rounded measure all these splendid qualifica
tions is the present grand and gallant leader oi
the Republican party James G. Blaine.
Our country, crowned with the vast an,t
marvelous achievements of its first century,
asks for a man worthy of the past and prophetic
of ber future; asks for a man who has the to
docity of genius: asks for a man who is the
grandest combination of heart, conscience and

This is a grand year a year filled with ths
recollections of the Revolution: fllleo with
proud and tender memories of the past, with
the sacred legends of liberty: a year in which
the sons of freedom will drink from the foun
