Inoidents in His Life Before the

Better Index to His Oharaoter

What the Es-Presldent's Former Lawyer
Assoclates May About HIs Methods

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
"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
"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
" '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

"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
