The UNION MUTUAL LIFE
INSURANCE COMPANY has
achieved during the first three
quarters of this year a very
large measure of success.
The causes that have operated
to secure same are not difficult
to determine.
Summed up, they are as fol
lows :
Increasing public confidence
in the smaller and more conser
vative of the Life Insurance
Companies.
The desire to obtain the best
Insurance Contract in the mar
ket.
The knowledge that the poli
cies of the UNION MUTUAL
LIFE INSURANCE COMPANY
alone contain the benefits of
the Maine Non-Forfeiture Law.
Which, combined with the
fact that th« Company’s man
agement in its conduct of busi
ness, makes everything subser
vient to Absolute Security, con
stitute the sources from which
its success has flowed.

land lie failed utterly, was removed and
finally died in obscurity.
Columbus died in the belief that lie
had opened the way to the East. In this
he was mistaken, but he had done a
greater thing, in that he had opened the
way to the West.
Hon. George F. Talbot
next spoke of the character of Colum
bus. He said that this is an age of re
view and criticism, when all the old he
roes are summoned anew to prove their
titles to greatness. The old stories of
Bruce, Tell and John Smith are doubt"
ed, and in the re-examination Columbus
himself has suffered. Justin Winsor,
who has published one of the best books
on Columbus, tells us that up to middle
life Columbus was a Mediterranean pi
rate. By his marriage he obtained the
advantage of some maps of an
old Portugese navigator. He was
superstitious, quarrelsome and de
sirous only of gold. Towards the na
tives he had only the feeling of a slave
holder, and began the system which de
populated the West Indies.
What have we to say to all these
charges? Perhaps, like the lawyers, we
had better “confess and avoid.” For in
history we must deal with the Columbus
of history. But tonight we are dealing
with an entirely different man. We are
celebrating the deeds of the apotheosized
Columbus, the man transfigured by his
great achievement. It has retrieved his
fame, and we honor him, not for his
character, but fpr what he did for us. I
am aware of thfe great faults of Colum
bus. He had not the bravery of Bayard,
the statesmanship of Charles V., the pi
ety of Fenelon; but he discovered a new
world. It was true that some denied
him this glory, but such denial was not
based on any good foundation. His was
the only discovery that had results.
in conclusion. Mr. Talbot read a poem
descriptive of the discovery.
Some Portraits of Columbus.
The next on the programme was the
paper by Rev. Dr. Henry H. Burrage.
Dr. Burrage’s paper was on “Some
Portraits of Columbus,” with especial
reference to the Yanez portrait in the
National Library in Madrid. The por
trait of the Duke of Veragua, a lineal
descendant of Columbus, calls the most
authentic portrait of Columbus. The
story was told of the formation of the
celebrated collection of portraits with
which Paolo Gionio, who was 23 years
old at the death ofColumbus,adorned his
villa on Lake Como. In this collection
was a portrait of Columbus. Gionio
wrote a work entitled Elogia Virorum
Illustriam, which was published in 1551.
In 1575 a new edition appeared in which
wood cuts of portraits^ in the Gionian
gallery were introduced. Re
ferring to that of Columbus,
Justin Winsor says that of any
picture is to be regarded as authentic,
this is. About the middle of the six
teenth century, the Duke of Tuscany
sent an artist to copy the Gionian por
traits. Vasari, in his Lives of Painters,
published in 1568, says that the artist
had completed at that time 280 portraits.
These were taken to Florence and ar
ranged in the museum there. In Vasa
ri’s list of these portraits that of Colum
bus was sixth in a collection of “heroic
men,” having a place between Vespucius
and Magellan. This portrait is the now
celebrated Florentine portrait of Colum
bus, a copy of which was secured by
Thomas Jefferson when he was minister
to France. Jefferson’s copy many years
ago came into the possession of the Mas
sachusetts Historical Society. The por
traits of the Gionian gallery remained
unscattered until the close of the eight
eenth century. Some have thought that
a search about Como would bring to
light the original Gionian Columbus.
There are those, however, who hold that
the Yanez Columbus, in the National Li
brary at Madrid, is the last Gionian por
trait. An acoount of the restoration of
this portrait in recent years was given.
General Lucius Fairchild, -who preceded
Hannibal Hamlin as minister to Spain,
became so much interested in this por
trait that he had it copied by Hernandez
of Madrid, and on his return to this
country he presented the portrait to the
Wisconsin Historical Society. Mr. Ham
lin, doubtless through General Fairchild,
became interested in the Yanez portrait,
and also had a copy made, which he pre
sented to Colby University on his return
from Spain.
This copy, loaned by the University,
was exhibited.
Hon. Joseph Williamson
of Belfast, presented a paper on the
“Burial Place of Columbus.” History
does not reveal many particulars of the
death or burial of Columbus. He wished
to be buried in Santo Domingo, and ul
timately his remains were carried there
and deposited in the cathedral, where
they were the care of the bishops for
many years. But the exact vault in
which the remains were placed became
unknown, long before the French revolu
tion, when Santo Domingo was ceded to
France. Spain, wishing to keep the
dust of the great navigator on her own
soil, disinterred what was thought to be
the dust of Columbus and bore it to
Havana with great ceremony. But
within a few years excavations in the
old Santo Domingo cathedral revealed a
leaden casket with inscriptions signify
ing that the remains of the great
Columbus were within. The Spaniards
will not admit the authenticity of these
remains, and have assailed the bishop
of the cathedral under whom the dis
covery was made, as an imposter. But
Mr. Williamson is inclined to think that
the remains found in 1877 in Santo
Domingo are the real ones, such being
the conclusion pointed to by the weight
of evidence. This is the conclusion of
the most thorough scholars.
Professor Henry I.. Chapman
of Bowdoin College, closed the exercises
with an address on “The Columbiad,”
the ambitious but luckless craft which
JoelBarlow launched on the sea of litera
ture. Joel Barlow was born in Reading,
Conn., in 17o4, was graduated at Yale,
arm died in 1812. In college Barlow,
Noah Webster and Zephanih Smith won
praise as disputants; and Barlow also
won collegiate fame as a poet. As a
chaplain in the Revolutionary war he
composed battle songs that aroused the
soldiers to a high pitch of enthusiasm.
Later he was called on by the Congrega
tional clergy of Connecticut to revise
Watts's hymns, which lie did with such
success that liis version was long used in
the Connecticut churches. The Vision
of Columbus, first written by Barlow,
was subscribed for by Louis XVI., (to
whom it was dedicated), George Wash
ington, Lafayette, Knox, the Sewalls of
York, Me., and others. This Vision of
Columbus was rather better than the
later Columbiad. Going to Europe
about the time of the French Kevolution,
he became wealthy, was endeared
to the French, and there wrote the mock
heroic poem “Hasty Pudding,” for
which he is chiefly known in the annals
of American verse. 1 n 1805 he returned
to America wealthy and honored, and
wrote his epic, “The Columbiad.” The
encouragement of the love of national
liberty was the real aim of the epic. Pro
fessor Chapman gave a very entertaining
analysis of the now almost forgotten
epic, with extracts of the most interest
ing portions of it.
Barlow died in Poland in 1812, while,
as an American envoy, he was going to
an interview with Napoleon. In Pro
fessor Chapman’s opinion, Barlow has
not received the consideration which he
deserves from American historians.
THE BOY KING OF SPAIN.
His Latest Portrait and a Sketch of HU
Babyhood.
It was the sad lot of Alfonso XIII of
Spain to be a king from the moment of
his birth, for he is a posthumous child.
But, although deprived of a father's care
and guidance, his mother, the Queen
Regent Christina, has trained him with
such loving care that he gives promise
of becoming a wise man and a popular
ruler. He was born May 17, 1886. His
father, Alfonso XII, died the previous
winter.
Till recently the history of Spain has
been a record of civil war and of a be
wildering succession of governing fac
tions. At last, in December, 1874, Al
I '
'
;S
KING ALFONSO XIII.
fonsG XII, son of Queen Isabella, as
cended the throne, the civil war having
terminated in his favor. He was only
seventeen years of age, and had been in
exile for six years. Much against the
wish of his mother the young king mar
ried his cousin Mercedes, daughter of
the Due de Montpensier, but she only
lived a few months. Reasons of state
rendered it imperative that the king
should marry again, and the choice of
his ministers fell upon the young Arch
duchess Christina, the daughter of Prin
cess Elizabeth of Austria. The mar
riage took place on Nov. 29, 1879, and
the Infanta Marie de las Mercedes was
born in the September following.
In 1882 another princess was born, and
three years later, on Nov. 25, 1885, the
king, who had long been suffering from
consumption, died, leaving his little
daughter queen of Spain and his widow
queen regent. However, it was known
that this arrangement might be only a
temporary one, as should the child which
was expected prove a boy he would
naturally succeed to the throne. The
little queen’s reign lasted only six
months, for on May 17,1886, her brother
was bom, and was at once proclaimed
king of Spain.
Alfonso XIII was measured for his
first pair of shoes at four months old,
and on the same day 300 poor children
in Madrid were presented with new
shoes in honor of the event. On the
king’s first fete day, Jan. 23, 1887, 30,000
of the poor in the capital received a
present, and the queen, in her son’s
name, founded a hospital for the or
phans of officers.
At the age of eighteen months Alfonso
XIH opened the session of the cortes.
On the throne of the emperors and kings
of Spain sat the nurse, an Asturian
peasant named Raymunda, holding the
baby sovereign, dressed all in white,
upon her knees, while round him stood
the queen regent and the infantas and
lower down the grandees, the digni
taries, the diplomatic body and the
great state functionaries. The queen
regent read the speech from the throne,
and when the ceremony was over the
little king, who had only interrupted
the proceedings once or twice, was car
ried home in his mother’s arms.
Alfonso XIII is not strongly built,
and at present is in bad health. He is

has fits of silence and melancholy, for
he is reared in loneliness, and has no in

time of his birth he has had a separate
establishment with a distinct set of offi
cials, civil and military. He is not a
pretty child, but has a very winning ex
pression, and is said to show a remark
able resemblance to his ancestor, Charles
IV.
