Many important things came from the Battle of New Or
leans, which was fought 100 years ago today, but the most im
portant of all was that it gave to the American people Andrew
Jackson. While all things are possible, it is not probable that
Jackson would ever have been President of the United States
had it not been for the fame that came to him as the conqueror
of Packenham's army. Yet, Jackson is the one military hero to
become President of the United States who is not oftenest
thought of a soldier. Even the fame of Washington, ifrst Presi
dent and wise statesman, rests more securely in the minds of
men as the Revolutionary commander-in-chief and "Father /bf
His Country." Taylor is still the hero of Buena Vista, and Grant
the victor of the Civil War. Jackson's place in history is as the
great democratic president who conquered the money-trust of
his day and restored the country to the masses.
Jackson's remarkable career ranks with that of Lincoln not
withstanding that, though the greatness of each was of the first
magnitude, they were widely differing characters. Jackson was
the posthumous son of a poor widow. He was practically with
out schooling. He was raised in the hills of North "and South
Carolina. Though but a boy, he was a valient soldier for the
American colonies during the Revolution. After the war was
over and victory won, there followed years of wild, harum scarum,
whiskey drinking, cock-fighting? and man-fighting?life. Yet
through it all, in addition to a hatred for snobbery and aristo
cracy, there was in the boy and young man an abiding sympathy
for the "under dog." a love of fair-plav, honest dealing and
truth. Next to a coward or a bully he dispised a liar. It is said
that most of his fights were in defense of weaker associates and
in trimming bullies.
Out of these conditions, that were possible in no other place
than on the frontier of America in his time, there grew a lawyer,
a general, a statesman and a chivalrous gentleman of coflrtly
manner. Where Jackson got his education as a lawyer is a mys
tery, for the days that he was supposed to be reading law were
devoted largely to the life we have been describing, and likewise
the nigths. Yet /ackson was a successful prosecuting attorney
who cleaned up Central Tennessee and sent gangs of bad men to
the penitentiary?making a record that would put a Heney to
shame?before he was a soldier, whipping the Indian tribes that
harrassed his State and defeating the flower of Wellington's war
experienced army. He was a Chief Justice of his State Supreme
court before he was a United States Senator and President.
Jackson was a masterful man. He dominated all that he came
in contact with. His State was his private property, politically
speaking, and willingly so, from the days when he was yet young,
and later he conquered the Nation, politically speaking, in like
manner. No man, Jefferson alone probably expected, ever con
trolled the United States so absolutely as this poor, unlettered
son of a lowly widow of the Carolina wilderness. Never was an
American so greatly feared or more sincerely loved.
Jackson marked a new epoch in American affairs. In him the
common people found themselves. Prior to his time every Presi
dent had been from the aristocracy. All were university men,
but Washington, and he was, with possibly one exception, the
wealthiest American of his day. and for generations his ancestprs
read clearly their title to place among the gentry of England.
Jacksor. was the first man to be called to leadership from the
masses who have, for the most part, controlled the destinies of
the Nation since his day.
Not only did Jackson revivify the principles of Jefferson, who
was his patron saint, but he gave substance to the purpose and
prophecies of the Sage of Monticello, who had dreamed of a
greater United States, which should extend from ocean to ocean
and from lakes to gulf, giving home to oppressed men of all na
tions. His famous toast, "the Federal Union, it must and shall
be preserved," sounded the death-knell to secession and separa
tion, and he insipred the annexation of Texas, which brought
California with it, and made certain America's position on the
Of all Americans, it would be exceedingly hazardous to say
that any was greater than was he the centenary of whose leap to
fame is celebrated in so many parts of the United States today.
PANAMA CANAL AND NORTHWEST TRADE
In enumerating for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer the things
upon which he bases a prediction that 1915 will be a prosperous
year, Robert R. Fox, a Seattle wholesaler, who is closely in touch
with the lumber trade, and erstwhile President of.the Young
Men's Republican Club at Seattle, includes:
"* 11 * * the demand from the Atlantic coast of the United
States for our lumber and shingles, caused by the low freight j
rates through the Panama canal."
Other business men of Seattle likewise attribute in part the
"good time coming" to the Panama canal
In this connection it has been notea that beer is being ship
ped from Milwaukee to Seattle and paper from St. Paul tot Seat
tle through the Panama canal at rates that defeat railroad com
Yet it is only a short time since it was being alleged that
the canal would be a detriment rather than an aid to Pacific coast
/business if the President and Congress insisted upon passing the
canal free tolls repeal bill.
"The proof of the ridding is in-the eating," and returns
from the feasts show majorities for Uncle Woodrow.
The present Congress has broken many records in addition
to being the hardest working Congress that the country has had
since the Civil War. It has made a new one already in the short
appropriation bills?the postofiice bill?before the end of the
old year. The bill carried an appropriation of $321,000,000. It
has been many years since a Congress passed one of the big ap- i
propriation bills until after the holidays.
