C. tion of George Washington as the first

trri- says is worthy to be read by every
ent, body :
d of This year, the centenary of the

the on a saint's day there is a special ser
vice in his honor, so through all this
vere year there will be especial remembrance
ime of Washington, and natural self-con

and glory beyond that of other nations. The
4 as last striking tribute to him is also most
I to timely, for it is that of Mr. Bryce in

ith opening, of this annus mirabilis. He
ling says, in speaking of Hamilton's death,
ion. "One cannot note the disappearance of
the this brilliant figure, to Europeans the
the most interesting in the earlier history
of the republic without the remark
ther that his countrymen seem to have
tn a never, either in his lifetime or after
een ward, duly recognized his splendid
oon- gifts." The explanation of this seem
the ing want of appreciation is, however,
:ove very characteristic, for it lies in the
but instinctive American regard for moral
and Mr. Bryce touches it, when he pro
etly ceeds : "Washington, indeed, is a far
cred more perfect character. Washington

occasion of a great national observance.
The President and Cabinet, Senators
and Representatives, and judges, dis
tinguished delegates from every State,
will attend, and there will be religious
and oratorical exercises, and civil and
military display. One fact, indeed, in
vests such a celebration with especial
triumph. It is that while the govern
ment which was organized a hundred
years ago was unprecedented in form,
and wholly untried in the experience of
States, and while it was regarded with
interest but with incredulity as essen
tially unequal to the great shocks of
fate to which other States have suc
cumbed, it has passed within the cen
tury, not only unshakened but
strengthened, through the most tre
mendous and prolonged ordeal to
which such a government could be sub
Chief among its extraordinary good
fortunes at its organization was that of
the presence of a man without whom
at that time its establishment would
have been hardly possible. The French
Minister at the time of the inaugura
tion wrote. home to his government
that it was the universal confidence in
Washington which secured assent to
the Constitution. John Lamb, who
was unfriendly to the Constitution, told
Hamilton in Wall street that only his
faith in Washington overcame his re
pugnance to it. The hour had plainly
come for union, but except for the man
it is probable that union would not
then have been effected.
The value of Washington to his coun
try transcends that of any other man
to any land. Take him from the Rev
olution, and all the fervor of the Sons
of Liberty would seeni to have been a
wasted flame. Take him from the
constitutional epoch, and the essential
condition of union,,personal confidence
in a leader, would have been wanting.
Franklin, when the work of the Con
stitutional Convention was completed,
said that until then he had not been
sure whether the sun depicted above the
President's chair was a rising or a set
tingsun, but now his doubt was solved.
Yet it was not the symibolic figure
above the chair, it was the man within
it, which should have forcast the
great result to that sagacious mind.
From the monmenit that independence
was secured no man in America saw
more clearly the necessity of national
union, or defined more wisely and dis
tinctly the reasons for it. He is *i:
chief illustration in a popular govern
ment of a great leader who was not also
a great orator. Perhaps that fact gave
a solid force to his influence by depriv
ing all his expressions of a rhetorical
character, and preserving in them
throughout a simplicity and modera
tion which deepened the impression of
his comprehensive sagacity. He was
felt as both an inspiring and a sustain
ing power in the preliminary move
ment for union, and by natural selec
tionl he was both president of the coni
vention and the head of the govesn
nient which it it instituted. John
Adams was V'ice-President, and Ham
ilton and Jefferson were in the
Cabinet., After Washington himself,
they were the three most emi
nent figures in the country. But
it is not possible to conceive any of
them organizing and establishing the
new system without controversy which
would rend it asunder.
Indeed this year commemorates the
auspicious beginning of the most ar
duous task which transcends that to
which any other man in history has
been called. Yet how little in his per
formance of that task his countrymen
would change ! During the course of
the century they have been divided
largely upon views of the Constitution,
and upon principles of administration,
and have engaged in a long and mo
mentous civil wvar, but they would cer
tainly not desire that any chief act of
Washington's administration should
have been other than it was. He acted
without precedent. but with the calm
majesty of rectitude, and although the
serpent of party spirit struck at him as
he retired, no honest partisan to-day
either distrusts his motives or do~ubts
his wisdom. It is a benignant fortune
that so great a celebration as that of
this year is aii act of homiage to so
great a man.

My fall stock for men, youths and boys will
be found to reach the very acme of perfec

It Is no idle boast to say that my stock of

assary qualities as the custom-made gar

slothing betrayed in its make the fact that It
was not made to measure, but that time Is
