A FINE NEW ENGLAND TYPE 3
THE death of D. H. Gilman at Pasadena Monday removes fiom j
the activities of lilt a man t; at uas a line type of those
dominating, resistless, shrewd. resourceful New England cha<
aeters that, 1 hiding the limitations o: their own tight little section
of the country loo small, came West and developed empires.
They have darkened the heave > o: the Middle A est with smoke
from their factories, and tin. arc ie pea ting on the Pacific slope ,
what they did in the .Mississippi valley, i he bigger possibilities
of a new country seem to apnea to some instinct or mysterious
sixth sense they possess as .. W i.iie yamiotte rooster does to an
Alabama colored boy. and tin v are as ..nick to act. Gilman had not
got Rhode Island sand out his clothes before he >au great manu
facturing and commeieia! ci:ies oa Paget Sound, a:ai. incident
ally. a fortune for Gilman i:: building them. He lived to enjoy the
realization of his vision. ,
THE ORPHANS' APPROPRIATION
THE appropriation bill that the Legislature is fast whipping |
into shape carries an item of $3.0i)J for tilt care )i orphan (
children and the children 01 indigent parents. The item. ,
though small, is probably more than wiii be required. However,
that is not the thought that has called forth these lew lines, it is
rather the purpose of the appropriation than its amount that cre
ates comment. It indicates that tin Legislature is alive to the re- ?
sponsibilitieso government, f his is a humane age. Government ; ,
everywhere have got away from Cain's philosophy, and men ,
have come to feel that they are. after all. their brothers' keepers.
The indigent miners' bills and the orphans' appropriation place
Alaska in step with those that aft going orward toward letter
things. The item should b; and doubtless will be retained in the
appropriation bill.
THE POST-INTELLIGENCER. THE TARIFF AND
"VILLAGE LAWYERS"
THE Seattle Post-Intelligt ic r thinks there was gross incom
petence in the preparation of the Underwood bill, and it as
signs as a reason for ti e conclusion that nine of the four
teen majority members o the committee that fashioned the
measure resided in towns o;" less hin I:. 000 inhabitants befoiv
they went to Congress. Of course, the Post-Intelligencer in its
endeavor to adversely criticise the tariff bill, failed to say that
all of these men have served long in Co. .ress where they have
been in close touch with govtrnnwnta! a 'airs. Bu' lei the Seattle,
paper tell its own story in its own way. It sums up the tarilf
makers like this:
"One comes from Sherman, Tex., a town of 12,412
inhabitants: one from Brunswick, Ga.. a town of 10.
182 inhabitants; one fr a, Jeife:v >: City, Ai?., a town
of 11.851) in habitants: >ne from Sco '.and Xe-k. X. C.,
with less than 2.500 inhabitants; one from Carrollton.
111., less than 2.500 people: one from .Mount Vernon, Ind.,
2.015: one from Carthage, Tenn., a village of some GOO:
one from St. James. Minr... less thai 2.500. and one
from Stroudsburg. Pa.. 1 U ). Th; se nine village law
yers constitute ratlu " more than two-thirds of the com
mittee which framed a measure which -will directly a
feet every man employed in manufacturing and in com
merce throughout the whole United States. How well
qualified they are by education, by past experience and
by the environment which surrounded them until their
entrance into Congress can be judged by the simple facts
recorded above."
But why this aspersion upon "village lawyers?" If we are
to infer that "village lawyers" are incompetent, perhaps the Post
Intelligencer will explain how the American Xation came to grow
great, for. unfortunate as it might be. the keeping of the country
has usually been in the hands of residents of villages. Jeff
erson. and Marhsnll, and Madison, and Dickinson, and Randolph,
and Rutledge, and Livingston, the great lawyers of Washing
ton's time, were "village lawyers." The Father of His Country,
himself, came from the farm an i had not even a village exper
ience behind him when he became a public character.
Henry Clay, the authoi of protection as a principle, was a
"village lawyer." So were Jackson, and Benton, and Calhoun,
and Van Buren, and Hayne. and Polk, and Cuchanan, and Walker,
and Cass, and Corwin. and Uessenden, and Crittenden, and Tyler,
and Pierce, and nearly all the other statesmen of the ante-bellum
days, "village lawyers," every or.e of them.
Abraham Lincoln, the first Kepuoncan rresiaenc, was ou
years of age before he had had experience outside of a village
so small that some of those mentioned by the Post-Intelligencer
seem like thriving metropolises in comparison. Johnson, and
Grant, and Hayes, and Stevens, and Conkling. and Blaine, and Ed
munds. and John Sherman, and Bristow, and the Hoars, and Ileid,
and Cannon, and most of the other Republican statesmen of their
day, were village products.
The first Republican high-tariff bill was the "Morrill bill"
named for a "village for lawyer," and it was found by the "Kelly,"
the "McKinley." the "Dingley" and the "Payne" bills, all high-tar
iff and all named for village inhabitants.
Beginning with Marshall and ending with Waite nearly all
of the chief justices, and associate justices, too, for that mat
ter. were "village lawyers."
But why go further? The same story would apply to nearly
every line of endeavor in this country. The history of the United
States is the story of achievement by village residents. Even
Mr. Taylor, principal owner of the Post-Intelligencer, was a res
ident of Everett until a few months ago.
"Village lawyers," indeed! If that is the best the priests of
high-tarifT can do the Underwood bill will stand the test.
That Essad fellow is refreshing. He fought like the Turk
he is for six months at Scutari and leaves it with his defeated
army only to proclaim himself a king; and, probably, he will fight
mother .^ix months in defense oi his kingship if necessary. He I
s a game old sportsman anyhow. i

It is at least an even bet that those gunners on the Talahas- '
