CLEVELAND FOLK LORE.
Inoidents in His Life Before the Tidal Wave Swept Him Into Fame. Better Index to His Oharaoter Than His Career Before the People. What the Es-Presldent's Former Lawyer Assoclates May About HIs Methods ln the Court Room. [Written for Titu IlELZA INIDPINDINT.I ESPITEI THE PUBLICITY 'ITHAT inevitably hedges about the publio man and the successful politician, there is usually one side of his story whlik is imperfeetly told, it at all, and this is that which more, perhaps, than any ether tells the impartial and simple story of the man as he is or was. It is the evidence of his intimates, unaonsociously and aneedotally relating what manner of man was their friend before the coming of that tidal wave which swept him from them to fame, and, perchance, to that apotheosis of en deavor where buns the biight light whiek falls upon a throne. The folk lore of a country indicates bet ter than the historian its mental chareeter isties, and what may be appropriately called the folk lore of a man is a better in dex to his character than volumes of caus tie blame or fulsome panegyric. Grover Cleveland has his folk lore. It has been the province of the writer of this articlelto gather together these fragmentary testimonials of men who were of old his dear est disciples and present them as a whole. They concern the man as he was, and most be found amusing since they are absolutely authentic and hail from brother lawyers in Buffalo who were the life-long fr iends and associates of the present demooratie stand ard beater and ex-president. Franklin D. Locke, chairman of the Erie county plovisional committee, through whose efforts largely was brought about the famous "Anti-Snappers' " May convention and who fought the Sheehan-Hill men tooth and nail at every point until the final coalition following the Chicago convention, has this story to te;l: "I have known Grover Cleveland a great many years, and I could, I suppose, tell many anecdotes of him. The leading one in my mind, however, concerns the casc of a man named Flanagan, whom he saved from death on the gallows. Flanagan, while drunk, had killed his landlord. I be lieve they were both creatures of low in telligence, the one a stevedore, the other a parasite of stevedores who boarded the workingmen and charged them for their living all they earned to the uttermost far thing. Grover Cleveland was no identified with the case that I never hear the name of Flanagan mentioned but 1 think of this Flanagan and how Cleveland saved his neck from the hangiman's noose. Certainly, if Providence ever interfered in mundane af fairs it interfered this time to save this wretched Irishman. I think the year was was 1881 or 1882, and the man in question had been sentenced to death. He had been defended by the late Ammi Cutter and the late H. 1. Greenes, and the jury had eon domned him. He was to have been executed on a F iday. The preceding Wednesday night a man who boarded at the Tifft house heard ce-tain lawyers discussing the ease, and heard them say that had Flanagan been a man of means he would never have been convicted of murder in the flert de gree. 'T'his wealthy man had occasional st:oaks of kindness and generosity, and the wo.ds flted his blood. He left his din ner and proceeded to look the matter up. He came that very evelnint to my house and got me to interest myself in the matter. 1 went with him and saw Mr. Cutter, Flana gan's lawyer, and got what light on the subject could be obtained from him. He stated his sincere conviction that the de gree should have been the second and not the first of crimin1ality, as premeditation or anything like'premeditation had not been even imperfectly proven. When we left the lawyer's honse my friend said, '1 won't see this man die without an effort. We must write a dispatch to Gov. Cornell,' Mind you, this was Wednesday night, and the execution was fixed for Friday morn ing, and time was precious. "We framed a telegram asking the gov ernor for a respite on the ground of evi dence newly discovered that Flanngan was not guilty of murder in the first degree. I signed it and no did he, but that was not enough. lie insisted on invoking official interfereuce, and we hunted up Grover Cleveland, mayor of the city, and got him to sign it, too. That was his first connec tion with the famous Flanagan case. From him we went to Millard Powers Fillmore. son of the ex-president, who also signed the telegram, and it was sent. It resulted in the obtaining of a respite for two weeks, but the executive command was followed quite promptly by an order from Gov. Cor nell, addreser d to G-over Cleveland, com mandinic him anrd the other subsc:ibers to the telegram to show cause at once be fore him at Albany why such a telergam had been sent, and appointing a very eaorly day for a hearing. We all four went to Albany and app eared at the stipulated time. Mr. Clhveland told nme afterward that his appearance at that time was his first in the executive chambrer or even in the capitol at Albany. "And it was he who made the argument to save Flanagan's neck, and saved it, too. Cleveland had a hard judge to plead before. Cornell was very disagreeable and made every effort to accentuate his positiqn against the alplication and the peolle who were before him in its behalf, and Mr. Cleveland kept hise temper marvellously and concluded Ihs argument withoun a break. It was one of the ablest efforts I ever heard. "At its conclusion the governor bowed us coldly out. and we left with very little con Cdence of success resulting from our mis sion, but very enthusrlastio over thie able ar gument we had heasid and which we telt would have prevailed with a fair-minded executive. "And, nas it subsequently proved, it did. As we left the capitol Mlr. Cleveland said: "Well, gentlemen, I guess we are beaten, but we have done our best and we cannot blame oulselves, whatever happens. "We felt sure Flangan would hang. "On the last day of the two weeks, all hope of respite abandoned, Ammi Cuotter, Flanagan's lawyer, wont to the prisoner to tell him to entertain no more hope, but to pr pare for the worst. 'Ihen Flanagan made a remark which Cleveland afterward made famous by repetition. 'It is pretty hard to have to get ready again after I was all readied up, before. It i not the mere fear of dylru that bothers me, hobut the dis groo, to my family, and so help me God, sir. nonre of them were over hanged before --niot on either side, sirl' lBut the poor fellow didn't have to die after all. Another week's respite came it the eleveath hour, and after that the commutation ti, imprisnmni-nt for life, becaune Flanagan, it was shown. had harborod no resentment against his rictirnand was hopelessly drnak when he did the killing. "I never saw (Irover Cleveland so pleas'd as when he heard the news. He couldn't have been halppier if he had made $10,000, rand $10,U00 was a pot of money to him in those days. "He christened the resoue party "l'he Flanagan (nards.' Now a peenoliar fast, ond I em daoe: The firt time he was ever in the executive chamber was in the Flanr gan eae, 't he second tine. and I think within n yea, hie entered it In a magisterial capacity as goyv-ruor of the state of New York and its lawful occupant." Warren F. Miller. another prominent lawyer. I'levulanud's Fadun Achates and most familiar ntimaste in his Biafalo days tells many admiring things of his old f friend. C "Oh, those were great old days, and we had se much fun ss a pares1 of boys. Even c after Grover got to be governor he ased to run up to linf ale to see us and we'd have re union. The only thing he was afraid of then was' the newspaper men; he used to dodge them to escape being interviewed. "A favorite resoet of ours wan Jake eobeukelberger's, where we used to go aun. day nights for duck and sauerkraut. Cleve land liked them both, and he also liked old Jake ltehenkelberger, and liked him so well that he made him pension agent, an oftmoe he still holds. "A favorite game of Cleveland's was 'pl-. ochle,' and he was agrest hand at '1O6,' 'sez and-sezet' I think the Germuans call st. lle could eat weiserwrst and ham sandwiches and play 'pinochle' all night. The old group of friends lost a well loved member when Cleveland Went into politils. "Cleveland and Oscar Folsom were great friends, but very different sort of people. I Cleveland loved study. Folsom hated it. 1 remember one day in Iloyce'.s store, on Main street, Folsom wnutid to know some thing about the charter on a certain point. "'Go and look it up.' anid Grover, 'and then you'll remember what you learn.' "Folsom turned with a fine air of disdain and said, 'I want you to understand that I practise law by ear, got by note.' "That story I have heard Cleveland tell a hundred times. He thought it was a Rreat I joke. It was a clever saying, wasn't it?" I and Mr. Miller went into a trance of inward I reminiscence and Iurghed over some good story which he wouldn't tell. It is a matter of public gossip that Mr. I Miller mibht have had almost any office under Mr. Cleveland had he wished, but be ing a modest man he didn't "wish." George Gorham is another man who used to know Cleveland well, but rather as a brother lawyer than as a bosom friend, like Mr. Miller, "I remember the time the Evening News was booming Cleveland for governor," said he. "the nomination was to be made, but Cleveland was out of town, up country visiting his mother, who was very ill. Shb had been sick a long time and Cleveland spent six weeks by her side. I was in my office opposite his here in the Weed block one iunday morning when Cieveland came in, a grip in each haud, and pa.sing through the ball went into his oticer. I saw hbu through tie elan door. Little did I think then I saw a future president of the United States. I hadn't any g;eat faith in his election as governer. I went across the hall to see him in a few minutes. Lie was sitting at the window looking out on Maui street. " 'Hello, Grove!" I said; 'glad to see yon back.' He turned and shook hands and then we chatted on trivial subjects a little while and then I went back to my office the same one we're sitting in now. "In a few minutes Cleveland came in and took a chair. 'Gorham," said he, `what do you think of this nomination 1 hear they, ase contemplating? 'I he News will have it that I msnt be the nominee and what the News says goes, I suppose. Don't you think it might be better if I should state a preference for the post of lieutenant gover noe ?' "'No, I don't,' seid 1. 'I don't believe my friend, Grover Cleveland, wants to pose us the tail to any man's kite.' '.'!e thought a minute and then said, "I guoess you are right; it must be the guberne torial nomination or nothing, and you know I don't much care for it, either." "I don't believe there was a man alive in those old days who had so little desire for public office as Cleveland. Hle not only did not want it, he veritably shunned it, and I think he had little respect for men who coveted such positions. I used to often think of that when I would hear of the re ports of rudeness shown by President Cleveland to men who went to him to ask for positions. "1 knew him many years in many phnses. I remember one day durinl the time lie was mayor his coming into my office in his shirt sleeves and asking my advice as to a mou sure before him to give $100 to the Grand Army of the IReloblic for Fourth of July Farade purposes. lie said he could find no aw by which inch a grant would be per miisible, 'andi yet.' said he, 'I suppo)e they'd never forgive me if I vetoed it. Whatt would you do?' " 'Veto it,' 1 answered, and the veto was duly made. I believe Cleveland then heeded a uhbscription to raise the money. "lie usld to come in hero very often in his shiet sleeves and chat. nid I think it was in this very room he conceived the de termination to interpose the veto on iith street cleaning contract steal, which miiglht very well be said to have been the making of him politically. "I know he was a great Founday woiker and a very thrifty man with money. I know he was tour when he became mayor. poor when he became governor and poor when he became I':; esidnt. I presume t saved something while in Washington, bus not as much as President llayec, who gave no entertainments at all and was distinctly parsimonious. Cleveland had a stern sense of the value of money, and it ran through all his official life. Ile had to economize when he was young and he kept up the habit ino mature yearse. "Why, it was through Grover Cleveland that I occupy this office we are In. I had the middle room in the suite on Main street when mBissell and Cleveland came over here to join in uiatnership with Sio rd.i. They wanted my room and the room beyond it, so as to have a range of con nected rooms. They deputed Mr. Cleve land to broach the subject of their desires to me. He was too delicate to strike me with such a proposition, so he went at it in this way: "'George, if you weren't occupying that midd:e office we could take that and run righi thiough. If you should ever want to swap with Sicard and tike his offttice across the hall let us know and we'll be glad to help you move, juest to be neighborly, you know.' S"Well, he got his center oflice and he siat Sin it for years. Ex-Judge Brundage, who cane into the ilrm when G(rover went to be iresilent of the United States, occupies it Iiow.." "I could tell dozens of yarns about Cleve land it my memory was only better," said Attorner Charles W. Hinson. who is run nnm for judge of the lntTffalo municipal court on the democratic tioket, "for I have been in his society scores of times, and never was there more companionable or polite society. Cleveland had a great store of anecdotrs always Ion hand, and he was always relady to tell them when he was in congenial companionship. When I first Sknoew him I was only a law student, but the i oftilce I was pursuing Illackstone in was just across the hall from that of (levelanud & Vaudertool. The ldoors of the ollices were often open. Aliite aliwa'r was, for I wanutel to see what Cleveland &, \'andleri ool were doing and, if possible. heaur their stories. If II couldn't hear tlhem I could watch the men, and thimt was noil o, nlse a play in itself. I First old Vanderpool woull tell a story aid Cleveland at the other aide of ltheu table Swould shiake all over with rumirth, niid then it would ie bha turn and Vauderpool would be convulsed and slap his knees so loud I it sounuded as if soiebIody were splnklillg a baby somewhere. I used to have to stuff Smy handkerchief into my imouth to keep frorm laughing aloud from just wltching Sthem for fear of being discoverrd. I re member once 1 wss listening with all nmy Sears and wotching with all riy eyes--I had Sonly two then and sw beitter than I do now with four," said lineou, wi iniig hiu Seye-glassesa--"when soumething utiurk me as irritbily funny and 1 slihreked alond. I SIeard Cloveland say: "'lilol, onnderpool. Ssombody else hits been hIaving fun, too, or ,llsi we have been playlng to the galluesy. I'lt's look and see.' 't'here was only rine tpossible place the muirth could hive come Sfrom, and that was our otelloe. They aetnn right in there andt found me as grnva as a Sjudge. I was 'the gallery.,' and Lhad to tell them it was I who had been larghing. "'What at?' asked Mlr. Clerveland, not unkiindly. "'At yon. sir.' I etplied. n"'At y me?' he asked with pretended dig I nity. I "'At bothl of you.' I said. and they both Slauthed at tileidea ot their having been giving a vaudeville entertainument for a young law student who was little more than an otllue boy those days. S"'lThe invuroluntary mrath, however, led to, I both the lawys a taking a fansy to sue, and when I not older I was admitted to the friendship of both of them, and I have crossed legs under the mahogany with them when tomany mrry Jost was rolui round. "1 iememear one time after that 1 we called Into eir office to witness Mr. Van derpool's will. Cleveland and another lwyenr were prsent. "'Charley,'said Cleveland, 'Judge Van derpool wants yeo to sign this document as a witness, and if anybody after this telli you be don't know his own mrind, or any thing of that kind, you tell them you know better-that he's got a will of his own.
