(CONCLUDED FROM FIRST PAGE.) once the result and the Just reward of great gifts and great attainments devoted through a lifetime to the thorough per formance of every duty or undertaking as he came to it. Of the statesmen and law yers of his day in this or any country I know of none whom I would pronounce his superior. Of all the men in public life whom 1 have known there is none whom I regard as quite his all around equal. In his very nature it was impossible that he should yield or sacritlce his well-matured beliefs or opinions when fundamental prin ciples In morals or In government were in volved. A well-known woman of the State speaking of him yesterday recalled the ex pression of Dickens about Lincoln in a let ter written but a few weeks before Uie as sassination: 'He Is one you must shoot to get him out of the way.' " . CiltlMTCST MAX OF III T1MH. The HlKti Tribute Iall ly Mr. John L. Griffiths. Mr. John Ii. Griffiths said: "In the death of General Harrison the greatest man of his time, in my judgment, has passed away. It has meant much to the Nation to have had, in this age of ma terialism, relieved, however, by splendid examples of patriotism and self-effacement, as its most conspicuous llgure a Christian statesman. There never was anything paltry or Ignoble in the aims and motives and ambitions of General Harrison. He reminded me of the earlier leaders In our history of the Adamses. John, John Quincy and Samuel, and of Livingston, Marshall and Jay. While self-centered, as all strong and resolute men are, General Harrison was cast in too large a mold to weigh his own advancement against the common good. Differing from many of our ex Presidents when he retired from office, he did not pass Into obscurity. He rendered some of his most efficient public service after leaving Washington. When he spoke all listened. He never lost his Interest in affairs and was ever zealous for his coun try's honor and highest welfare. He was a man of superb moral courage and said what he believed to be true, let the conse quences be what they might. "His literary style was pure, simple, dig nified and noble. Although he read widely, there is scarcely a literary allusion in any of his addresses. He formed his own style a style peculiar to the man and almost flawless in its perfection. His most impas sioned utterances have nothing artificial or spectacular about them. They were coined out of profound experience, strenuous con viction and deep sympathy. He was loyal to his friends and loved and trusted them as they loved and trusted him. He was a man of transcendent talents and tremen dous power, always beneficently and wisely employed for the disciplining and strength ening of the public conscience. While he cannot be replaced, he can be emulated, and the sincerest tribute we can pay to his memory will be to follow the steady moral light which shone on his pathway from the beginning to the end of his long and varied and useful and Illustrious career." It. O. HAWKINS TALKS. Many Reminiscence of General Har rison I.csrnl Career. Roscoe O. Hawkins related many inter esting reminiscences of the life of General Harrison, as he sat with a group of friends in the Columbia Club, last night. Senator Hawkins was intimately acquainted with the legal career of the dead man, having been associated with him in many of his cases. He said that .one of the most con spicuous characteristics of General Harri son was his unvarying courtesy on all oc casions. "When I came to Indianapolis as a young man," said Senator Hawkins, "General Harrison was in the active gener al practice of the law and my impressions of him as a lawyer were received at that time. I then thought, and I still think, that he was the ablest general practitioner in the State. What I mean by that is that many lawyers were particularly strong in certain branches of the profession and practice, but General Harrison excelled 'all of them as an all-round practitioner, taking one case with another as they came. 1 once heard a distinguished. Judge remark that if he were on trial for his life or were entangled in litigation that involved all that he possessed, he would rather be rep resented by General Harrison than by arty other lawyer that he ever knew. "When General Harrison entered the field of politics he displayed the same ability that he did as a lawyer. He was not a politician in any ordinary sense of the term. He had very little of the quality that usually makes a man popular in a political way, but his great ability, combined with his honesty or purpose and high sense of duty, made him strong with his party with out the attributes that are generally con sidered essential to iolitical success. He was an absolutely sincere man in every re lation of life, without false pride or hypoc risy. Hi death comes as a great shock to me. TltllllTE OF A POET. James AVhltcoml Hiley on Ex-Presl- dent lIurrlMon. Regarding General Harrison. James Whitcomb Riley said: "I can only repeat the commentaries of the men in this city who hae expressed their admlratloi for General Harrison. He was a man to whom we owe much gratitude and a man who re flects upon this State and the American country great credit. We naturally feel proud of him because he chose this city for his home. He has been spoken of in the highest terms ever since I can remember, and my father was one of his greatest ad mirers before my time. No man more justly deserves praise for his work. He was dis tinctly American and a Westerner, a type cf character we like in men. Even his po litical enemies, for I am certain he had none other, and those who were bitterest, I feel could speak of him only with the greatest respect and admiration. For home life no one displayed more affection and duty than he did. I think that General Harrison was mismeasured by some who looked upon him an cool and practical, which is true on the surface only, and that is the requirement for a successful business man or a man in office. He was a man of deep affection ami deep feeling, although it was not manifest in his outward appear ance and manner. His emotions were sub ject to his control, and he never let senti ment get beyond that control. "General Harrison hail a idgh sense of justice and his comrades at the bar recos nlzeil it. He entered a case with Intense earnestness, and his arguments before the Judges were sometimes scathing, but they were takn by the men at the bar in the friendliest spirit. He considered the Justice of his side of the case and used his Judg ment in presenting it. So, in his home life, with strangers at the bar, he made friends. "After leaving this city he returned to nmku It his homo when he might have chosen any other of the more advantageous for his calling. After being mangled by the flurry and strife of public life he came back home, his chosen home, and we were honored by his return. He won and enjoyed a Just and universal respect." LAST AIMJItnsS limn:. General Hnrrinon nt tlie Dedication of the eu Columbia Club. Dr. Franklin W. Hays, ex-president of ' the Columbia Club, recalled last night the interesting fact that General Harrison's last public utterance was on the occasion of the dedication and banquet In the new club building the night of Jan. 51. VM). Dr. Hays talks feelingly of the dead ex-Presl-dent's affection for the Columbia Club, which was so eloquently expressed in his address at the banquet mentioned. In tnat address General Harrison said in clos ing: "All hall to the members of the Columbia Club, an association of loyal, liberal-minded Republicans, patriots, organized, not to control primaries or divide the spoils of office, but to maintain the ascendency of Republican principles and to promise friendliness and good will among its mem bers. I recall the association and the cir cumstances and the ardent readiness with which you on eVety occasion rendered honor and service to me as the party's candidate and, as your neighbor, possible as a candidate. These things abide in my memory; they are stored where no vicissi tudes of life or death can distutb them, but they are more than mere reminis cences, they are bonds of friendship and inspirations in duty to ourselves." . MESSAGES OF C'O.XDOLEXCE. Ex-President Clevelnnd nntl Former Cabinet Ollleera Send Teleernnm. Among the telegrams received at the Har rison home last night was one from ex Presldent Cleveland expressing sympathy for tfce bereaved widow. The message was sent from Princeton, N. J., and was ad dressed to Mrs. Harrison, as follows: "Ac cept my heartfelt sympathy in an affliction which many millions share with you." Messages wero also received from many ether public men. Some of General Harri son's former Cabinet officers sent telegrams. Messages came from Gen. Benjamin I-. Tracy, ex-secretary of the navy; John W. Foster, ex-secretary of state; Charles Fos ter, ex-secretary of the treasury; John W. Noble, ex-secretary of the interior; Senator S. B. Elkins, ex-secretary of war; John Wanamaker, ex-postmaster general; ex Sonator Thomas W. Palmer, of Michigan; Chief Justice Fuller, Justice Harlan, Jus tice McKenna. Senor Azpiroz, Mexican minister at Washington; Murat llalstead and William McAdoo, who was assistant secretary of the navy under Cleveland. Mr. Wanamaker in his telegram an nounced that he would be here to attend the funeral of General Harrison. It is ex pected that other Cabinet officers who served under General Harrison will also attend the funeral. FROM IIEXHY L. WILSON. United States Minister to Chile on Lute Ex-President. Henry L. Wilson, United States minister to Chile, who Is visiting in the city, said of General Harrison, last night: "I have known General Harrison from childhood. On my visit here I hoped to be able to visit him and renew the pleasure of his friend ship and am greatly shocked by his death. General Harrison Impressed me always as being a man of the highest intellectuality and being absolutely honest In his convic tions upon all public questions. I do not believe he ever deviated a hair's breadtn from what he believed to be right in order to secure popularity and public approba tion. If he believed a thing to be right ho armed himself. to the convictions, let the results be what they might. The world has rated him generally as a cold, unsympa thetic man, but such is not my estimate of his character. His cold exterior was, in my Judgment, simply a masked cover, u natural, diffident and modest spirit, and back of it all there was as kindly a heart as ever beat in the breast of any man, and sympa thy as quick and gentle as a woman's. He was easily the greatest man Indiana has ever produced, either in law, statesmanship or controversial literature. We have Vever had a man like him in this State and I doubt if we will find one equal to him in all his ways very soon." STATE OFFICERS' TRIBUTES. Governor Durbln and Other Give Meedd of I'rnlse. Governor Winfield T. Durbin, when asked for an expression on the death of General Harrison, said: "Although the death of General Harrison has for several days seemed Imminent, the announcement of his final dissolution was a grtat shock to me. I had just returned to the city and was preparing to go to the general's residence when the dread mes sage came. "My relations with General Harrison, po litically and socially, extended over a pe riod of many years, and I feel there Is no impropriety in adding that these relations were confidential and intimate. I admired him for his great ability, his love of coun try, his sturdy Christian life. "lie certainly bore his full share of re sponsibilities In his long service in behalf of the State and Nation. His mind was always occupied In the considera tion of a multiplicity of pressing du ties, and he was by many regarded as being unnecessarily austere, when, in fact, he was naturally disposed to be sympa thetic and kind. He was too earnest and too busy to encourage undue familiarity or unseemly frivolity. It required no effort on his part to be dignified. That was an in herent characteristic, but 1 am sure it was never designed by him to be meant as a display of superiority. In my relations with him he was uniformly affable, and I believe the same may be said by every one who enjoyed his friendship. His record as a soldier, as a statesman, and as a citizen is. an open book. He was frank and cour ageous. He scorned mean things and ad hered to a high standard of morals under all circumstances. He achieved distinction as a member of the United States Senate, and his administration as President added materially to his worthily won reputation as a wise. Just and far-seeing statesman. His death is a distinct loss to the people of Indiana arid the Nation, and will be sin cerely mourned." R. A. Brown, clerk of the Supreme and Appellate Courts, said: "General Harri son has been in such vigorous health that I had hoped he would live yet twenty years of usefulness to the church, the Stato and the Nation. His death brings a great shock as well as great loss to the peo ple. His was a rare citizenship, almost ideal. He demonstrated the fact that a man In public life can be pure, upright, honorable, dignified, modest and unosten tatious. Since the death of Bismarck and Gladstone I have looked upon General Har rison as the greatest living mentality of the world. Prince Ito, of Japan, is a man of great constructive genius, and Li Hung Chang Is. a great diplomat, but neither has the profound mental grasp which Gen. Harrison possessed. He was by far thi most influential personality In the United States wnen he spoke or wrote on cur rent questions. While his death brings loss to the whole world, it falls with grea; est force upon Indianapolis and upon our own State, which he loved to well. 1 think that General Harrison, by his greatness, did more than any other one citizen to give Indiana a high place in the estimation of the people of the Nation. His speak ing campaign of 18 and excellent admin istration reflect their greatness on Indiana. The State owes him a debt of gratitude and will give him that place in memory and fame which his greatness of character und mind richly deserve." Leopold Levy, treasurer or state, said: "General Harrison was a man of clear and mature Judgment, conversant with all inter national matter and able to attend to every detail in all departments of state, re spected by all the nations of the world and his administration was a bright page in this country's history. Indiana mours one of of her brightest sons. General Harri son's debates and seeches are gems, full ot the choicest thoughts and timely ad vice. The Republican party loses an able counselor and leader." Frank Martin, deputy auditor of state, said; "The strongest impression mr.de upon one who studies the career of Gen. Harrison Is that his success in life was due to his own worth. Native ability, strengthened a hundred fold by Inde fatigible work and unlimited energy, made him a man necessary to his Stale and country. Without him Indiana and the Nation would have been deprived of much I of present strength und glory. In his loss Indiana is the greatest loser. He was es sentially an Indiana man and was the accepted leader of all her sons. Time alone can demonstrate whether we have one abla to take his place." Frank L. Jones, superintendent of public Instruction, said: "The death of General Harrison takes from the Nation Its fore most citizen. He was the ideal American. His presence in the community and State was a constant inspiration to our youth. It is particularly unfortunate that a man of such eminent ability and wide experience should be taken from us when the Nation is in the midst of changing conditions and new governmental policies. His wisdom, honesty and conservatism gave to his words and advice the force of a multitude of ordinary men." B. F. Johnson, chief of the bureau of statistics, said: "My admiration for Gen eral Harrison began with the vividly mem 01 able events of 1SC1-CÖ, when he gave up his position in civil life and tendered hs services to Governor -Morton, was appoint ed colonel of the Seventieth Indiana Regi ment, and. took up the duties of a soldier. I think of him as if but yesterday leading his regiment through Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia and on to Atlanta, bringing honor and distinction to himself and his regiment in a desperate charge made upon the enemy at Resaca. My admiration was strength ened as I followed him on to Savannai.. through the Carolinas to Washington, back to his home again, where he laid aside the habiliments of .1 soldier and took up the duties of civil life with the same ease that he had laid them aside four years before. "As United States senator, as President of the United States, the one feature of his life that seemed to overshadow every other was his lntenseüy American spirit. Gen eral Harrison was truly the premier Amer ican,, and I honored him above others for his noble Christian character and patriotic devotion to his country." Merrill Moores, deputy attorney general, said: "General Harrison probably was the greatest lawyer of his time. Judah P. Benjamin was a very great lawyer, but his field was limited. Lord Russell was a successful advocate and a respectable judge, but his successes at the bar were more attributable to the rare charm of his personality than to his ability as a lawyer. How his successor In the leader ship of the English bar, tho present LorJ Alberstone, compared with Harrison we ali know through the pitiable exhibition ho made against Harrison in the Venezue lan arbitration. Sir Edward Clark Is only a successful Jury lawyer. David Dudley Field was an encyclopedia of legal eru dition, a drafter of codes and a progressive thinker. Charles O'Conor was a forcible lawyer and the type of manly courage and integrity. James C. Carter is an in tellectual athlete, with the rare gift of almost perfect rhetoric. Evarts was and th younger Choate is of much the same type. Matthew Carpenter was great as n constitutional lawyer, and so Is Ed munds. Garland, Daniel and Carlisle were men of great force who took high rank at the bar. "General Harrison was too busy a man to acquire the scholarly learning of Field, but he had in every other respect every quality which distinguished every one ol these great lawyers in his profession. Whether before a court or jury he was always the complete master of the law and all the facts of the case he had undertaken, and he presented them with a clearness, force, courage and convic tion unsurpassed by any of his contempo raries. He mastered the subject before him by exhaustive study, and, however abstruse the problem, be it of law, mechan ics, or any branch of science, or a seem ingly impenetrable labyrinth of evidence, he applied himself to It until he had solved it. and, having done so, he could so pre sent his solution that to the intellect of the meanest Juror, as well as to the great est judicial mind, it seemed plain and easy; and his manner of presentation was de lightful. "He was a great statesman, simply be cause he was absolutely honest with him self and the whole world, and he applied to the problems of government the same industry, capacity, loyalty and couiage that he gave to his profession, and made his solution so clear and convincing as to be almost irresistible." William L. Taylor, attorney general, said: "Benjamin Harrison was the most con spicuous citizen that ever lived in his home city; the most illustrious man of his State, and was at his death the greatest states man of his country' and the peer of any statesman in the world. And yet. withal he was the simple, kindly, gentle, plain citi zen who did his duty day by day and loved his country as he did his life. As he said at the funeral of his friend Fishback, so we can nay of him: 'This city and State will feel lonesome without him. Love of country was with him a passion. It was easy for him to perform his patriotic duties. He went into the army without a. struggle, because it was duty's call, and that made it easy for him. As a senator he was guided by the same Impulses, and as President he did not change his course. It is doubtful if any man in the history of American politics lived up more rigidly to his highest ideal as the first citizen of the Republic than he. He was a most self-poised "man, both in public and private life. No matter how bit ter the political assault may have been, no matter how cruel, causeless and shameful the personal criticisms became, yet this great and good man never struck back or answered defiantly. He was always the same gentle, sweet spirit, who did his duty uncomplainingly ami went straight forward In his work. Conscience was the pole stat that directed and guided every movement of his craft on the sea of life. "Benjamin Harrison died on the summit of greatness. As a President he will rank in history with Jefferson and Adams, with Garfield and Grant. No pantheon for the great of America will be constructed In the future in which the marble statue of Gen. Benjamin Harrison will not occupy a most conspicuous place." Charles E. Wilson, secretary to Governor Durbln, said: "I have known General Harrison quite well during the period cov ered by the past eighteen years, and I sincerely admired him on account of his undisputed ability. He was a natural born leader. "He was not disposed to be dictatorial In party matters but he possessed qualities of genius as a commander that exerted a potent influence upon those who were fa vored with his advice and counsel. Ho won fame as a soldier in his youth, he served in the United States Senate with distinction, and as President he made a record that compares favorably with any other in the history of the Republic. He did not deliberately court popularity, as most politicians do, but rather relied on the confidence he had in the theory that public duty well and honestly performed insures its reward. While there has been more or less criticism of his personality, to the effect that he was not cordial, much of this was baseless, and all of it frivolous. His surpassing ability was ev erywhere admitted, and his integrity was never questioned. His life was character VA.il by usefulness and honor, and his death will produce general and sincere regret." JUDGES AMI OFFICIALS. With One Accord They Pny HIrU Trib ute to Gen. Harrison. Judge John L. McMaster said: "The death of General Harrison is a sad loss to the community and also to the Nation. He stood in ability almost alone as a lawyer and statesman. He was not only great Intellectually, but his moral character was without reproach and his honesty of. pur pose and patriotism were of unswerving character. I first became acquainted with him when I came to this city as a younj man to locate in the practice of law, and my admiration of him and my faith in the soundness of his views and- correctness of his judgment have steadily increased. Ho was also .a Christian gentleman, and brought to the discharge of his duties thj conscientiousness of a true Christian. While his death will be greatly deplored by the people of the whole country and of other countries, it is especially sad to his home people by whom he was so well known and loved." Judge James M. Leathers said: "I con sider General Harrison Indiana's greatest Jurist. His power of luminous statement, his wonderful personality and the moral power of the man made him a peerless ad vocate. While popularly supposed to be cold In temperament, no other lawyer more surely reached the hearts of Juries. Ills death will be an Irreparable loss to thrt bar. for he was Its brightest, noblest orna ment. His profound attainments, splendid eloquence and intellectual vigor made him its acknowledged leader. The lawyers of the State are justly proud of his profes sional fame and prestige throughout the world." Lewis G. Akin, county recorder, said: General Harrison was the greatest living man America had. He was the brainiest and the truest statesman, and it will he a Ion? time until we have another to take his place. We need more men like General Harrison. Too much cannot be said of him for his acknowledged ability shone and was recognized the world over. He was a true man und his was an honest pur pose." George Elliott, county clerk, said: "I was always an admirer of General Harri son. He was a brainy man, and Indianap olis has met with a great loss. While I do not agree with some of his latest views I admire him. He was recognized as the greatest lawyer in the Country, and h could make the best short political speech of any man I ever heard. He could .ay in a few words what it would take other speakers a half hour to say, but was movo of a statesman than politician. He waj a friend to my grandfather, and ever since I was a boy I have nad the greatest ad miration for him. I remember when I was six years old how 1 cried w-hen he was de feated for Governor of Indiana." Harry B. Smith, county auditor, said: "Anything good that is said about General Harrison I heartily indorse. I first became acquainted with him in lüS. when he was a candidate for President, and know no kinder man. Things have been said about 'white kid gloves,' but without justice; he was the reverse of that erroneous c pinion. General Harrison was the brain iest man in the United S'ates. He cho.-e the right side because it was right and did what was right, which always brought the test results to the community ant State, lie was the greatest officeholder and t-tatesnjan in the country and his ad ministration proved it." Judge Henry Clay Allen, of the Circuit Court, said: "President Harrison's life äs a conspicuous example of success well merited and fully achieved. He knew no lailures. As a citizen, lawyer and states man he stood pre-eminent. No one can correctly estimate the value of his life to the Nation and to the State." Judge Vinson Carter said: "I have known General Harrison since 1SC2. I first mtt him in college before I went to the army and met him in the army many times. As a man, lawyer and statesman he had no superior in the country. I was present at a Thanksgiving dinner in Tennessee in 1S64, when he made an after-dinner speech. It was at the close of the war, and that speech was one of the finest I ever heard him make. He was truly an American and in his cases at the bar I always admired his ability. He was truly a great man." Trlltnte of John W. Kern. John W. Kern said: "General Harrison was Indiana's greatest lawyer and fore most citizen. He was a man of great natural endowments, an untiring student and profound thinker. His great-grandfather, who signed the Declaration of Independence, nor his grandfather, who fought at Tippecanoe, possessed no richer patriotic blood than he. lie was In every sense of the word a patriot, and he proved his patriotism, not only by offering his lire to nis country on the field of bat tle, but by his record as a public of ficial, and in the discharge of his duties as a citizen. That he was a broad-gauged American statesman is attested by the fact that when President he appointed a Demo crat to the Supreme Court bench of the United States, because he believed the interests of the country, demanded it, and did not hesitate to appoint such Demo crats as Judges Putnam, of Maine, and Dallas, of Pennsylvania, to the Federal C'ourt of Appeals bench, because he be lieved there should be no politics in tho judiciary. I am not advised that any other President during the last fifty years has made such a record. I always admired General Harrison's ability as a lawyer and public man, and on closer acquaint ance in recent years I came to like him personally. "Not Indianapolis, not Indiana alone 5s the loser by his death. The Republic suf fers a distinct loss. Who will take Gen eral Harrison's place at the bar? Who will continue the battle for the government of the fathers, in which he was engaged up to almost his last hour?" Hi Force an n Lawyer. Albert W. Wishard, United States district attornej-, said: "My first Impression of General Harrison as a lawyer was in hear ing his argument for the defense of the celebrated case of Milligan and others against Governor Morton, General Carrlng ton and others in the United States Court here in the spring of 1S71. The case was tried before Judge Drummond and a Jury. Governor Hendricks represented the plain tiffs. General Harrison and Major Gordon the defendants. The case grew out of the conviction of Milligan, Horsey and Bowles by a military court during the war. I afterwards heart! his arguments in the prosecution of John Campbell for the killing of a man named Little at Alamo, in Mont gomery county. The case was tried in Crawfordsville in March of 1S74. The lead ing argument for the defense was made by Daniel W. Voorhees and for the prosecution by General Harrison. While I was not of age at the time of the trial of either of these cases I can never forget the great force of General Harrison's argument in each. While I have a fair knowledge of the Indiana bar I have never heard any other lawyer make an argument that equaled either of those made by the general. In his death the State has lost the acknowl edged leader of the bar. His personal life was without a blemish. In his death the people, without reference to party affilia tion, can mourn the loss of Indiana's great est citizen and a man who more than any other In the last twenty-five years has made the name of this State great." Expression of n Friend. Smiley N. Chambers said: "General Har rison was pre-eminently a worklngman. In the sixty-seven years of his life he perhaps worked more hours than any man of his city or State. Boy and man, he worked strenuously in the performance of his duty. He made the most of tho talents with which he was endowed. He lost neither time nor opportunity to store his mind with knowledge, and fit him self for the great responsibilities of his life. What an intellect he possessed the product of good natural gifts and unin termitting activity. In all my acquaint ance I have not known so prodigious a worker in a lawsuit. He knew no weari ness until the end was reached. He was an honest, high-minded man, scorning du plicity, hating treachery and abhorring ev ery form of dishonesty. Liberty loving he worshiped at the throne of law and or der. Ills sympathy was profoundly with the Boers in their heroic struggle for their country and their homes. The oppressed everywhere have lost a friend and advo cate, this country a loyal patriot and this State its greatest citizen." Frank It. llurkeM Tribute. Frank B. Burke said: "In the death of General Harrison constitutional govern ment loses an able exponent, liberty a fear iess champion and the aspiring people of the world a friend who dared to antagonize the administrative policy of his party in de fense of their rights. His high character rendered him invaluable to the cause he espoused. His exalted place in the United States and his world-wide reputation a"s a pure and unselfish patriot gave weight and power to his advocacy of constitutional freedom. He had In him the blood of one of the signers of the Declaration of Inde pendence. Ills last days were given to the defense of its great principles. The State has lost its foremost citizen; the Nation its most virtuous statesman; humanity its most loyal friend." , Chicago Attorney' Estimate. George II Peaks, a prominent young at torney of Chicago, was in the city last right. Mr. Peaks was well acquainted with General Harrison. In speaking of the legal ability of the distinguished deceased Mr. Peaks said: "As a lawyer General Har rison was the embodiment of conservatism. He always stood for a strict interpola tion of the law. His influence was felt In any case in which he was interested, and his views, which were always expressed with remarkable clearness and power, had the greatest weight' with the bench. He was one of the strongest lawyers of his time." Greatest Citizen of the Country. John B. Cockrum said: "I think General Harrison was the most profound lawyer, the greatest statesman and by far the ablest citizen of the United States. He was not at all times attractive to men, tut his ability, his qualities of manhood, and his goat and strong character were such as finally to attract all men to him. 1 have talked to people all over the United States concerning General Harrison. He vas lookel upon as the n-ost conserva tive anil able statesman of the country by all clashes of men. This city has sus tained the greatest possible loss in his death. The State and Nation will find no nan to take his place in the confidence and respect of people at large." S. O. Plckenw ExpreitMion. Samuel O. Pickens said: "I think that General Harrison was one of the greatest lawyers of his day. Not long ago I heard a distinguished lawyer of a neighboring city who had met James C. Carter, Joseph H. Choate, of New York, and other great lawyers in argument of cases in the Su preme Court of the United States say that General Harrison was the peer of any of them.

In view of certain prominent tendencies of his party at the present time I regard Iiis death as a na tional calamity. His long experience in pub lic life, his careful and conscientious study of all questions affecting the prosperity and stability of the Nation, his fearless ness and fore in expressing his views made him extremely valuable to the country at the present juncture. Probably there was no man in the United States whose views had greater weight with the American peo ple." Mr. A. A. Yonng'x Expreimlon. A. A. Young, collector of customs, said: "I can scarcely realize that General Harri son is dead. His abstemious life, his splen did physique and even temperament led me to expect him to live to a good old age. His has been a successful life. Great in every sphere In his home life, in his pro fession, in his church, in every public duty. His administration of the affairs of the Nation while he was President will go down in history as one of the wisest, cleanest and most wholesome in our national exist ence, and his was the great personality that impressed itself in that administra tion. He lacked the personal magnetism of Blaine and some of our other great men. but he won the hearts and confidence of the people by the magnificence of his life." A Shock to A. L. Maon. Augustus L. Mason was deeply shocked and grieved by the news of General Harri son's death. Mr. Mason and the ex-President were intimate friends, and only last Wednesday night the two conversed to gether pleasantly in the home of Mr. Ma son. "In the death or uenerai Harrison, said Mr. Mason, last night, "we lose not only the greatest American lawyer, but also our greatest statesman. His career as President of the United States is of less splendor than his public service performed since leaving the presidential chair. The principles of government which he advo cated are likely to find new adherents, not withstanding their great expounder is gone." City Controller' Estimate. City Controller E. M. Johnson said: "Gen. Harrison was -the most distinguished man in Indiana, as a lawyer, statesman and in every way. His greatest characteristic was his great sense of propriety as a public man, not only in his utterances, but also in his actions. He was the greatest lawyer that Indiana ever produced and he was pre- eminent as an orator." General Mctiiniii' ExprenNion. General George F. McGinnis: "I esti mate General Harrison as having been one of the greatest men the country ever pro duced, as a lawyer and statesman.. He went into the army without experience and made an excellent soldier." E0K GOOD OF CUBANS. Senator O. II. Plutt Replies to C rltl clsms of III Amendment. WASHINGTON, March 13. Senator Piatt, of Connecticut, author of tb much-discussed Piatt amendments, relating to Cuba, which are. Just now, a theme of agitation in Cuba, had a brief talk with President McKinley to-day regarding Cuba, and later saw Secretary Root. Mr. Piatt, when asked concerning the published criticism appearing to-day from Havana, concern ing the amendments bearing his name, declined to enter into any discussion as to a particular criticism made by a certain distinguished Cuban leader, but on the gen eral subject said: "The Cubans will see, in the end, that the amendments are as much in their interests as they are in the inter ests of the United States. They will gee that, In the end," continued Mr. liatt, to lend emphasis to this particular conviction. "There may be at the start a little of fended dignity growing out of misapprehen sion of purpose and aims, but I have no doubt that the Cubans will ultimately see the sincerity of purpose whiih has actu ated us in framing these amendments, alike in their interests and in the interests of this country." General Gomez Letter. HAVANA, March 13. The letter written by General Gomez to a friend In San Domingo, in which the general said the Piatt amendment gave matters In Cuba a j-crlous aspect, a? cabled to the Associated Press last night. Is not causing any un easiness here and receives little comment. It scorns to be generally understood in gov ernment circles that thi.? letter was writ ten for political motive?, and that Gen eral Gomez has, since Ü3 publication, as sured the government that it has no sig nificance.

LONDON, March 13. Lord Salisbury, speaking this evening at the annual ban quet of the Association of the Chambers of Commerce, after alluding to the "unity of parties during the many months of struggle from which England is issuing with her strength unimpaired," referred to trade questions. "I do not find." said the premier, "that the spectre of Ger many has affected our commercial works, although a despondent feeling exists. ihich is due rather to the necessity which fer tile writers feel of producing copy fur Impending issues, rather than to any real foundation in fact. Still there Js a no'e of discouragement in a certain portion of public opinion and the public press. This perhaps is the national pessimism which attends great success, but I trust we shall take such warnings as if thev were real, and give our whole attention to meeting any dangers that might bd pressing upon us." After rtcommtndlntf a wore general f r r r w m w m to buy five articles or do study of foreign languages, and asserting that Englishmen ought to know French r.nd German, and possibly Spanish. !-fjre thinking of Latin and Greek. Lord Salis bury urged that education should be util itarian. Later in tho address he observed: "1 do not largely believe in the decad ence of English commerce, but. If it is true, it Is possibly lue to Parlament which med dles too much. Too frequent interfer ence with private enterprises might dls CDuraRo capital from seeking employment and il we dried up capital we might pro duce an evil of greater decay upon in dustry which no subsequent exertion would wipe out."
