Something About Congressman Dolllvcr,
of Iowa, by Many Regarded as tbc
West's Brightest Orator.
Prom the Illustrated American.
With the exception of the speaker,
no man In congicss is more famed f ot
itis witty epigrams and bright compar
isons than Jonathan P. Dolllver.
It was he who described the attitude
of the Democrats on the tariff ques
tion ns that of men "emptying hard
coal nhes in a high wind, witli th.ii
eyes bhut and their backs to the sub
"Mugwumps," ho said on another
occasion, "treat their conscience like
the stock In ttnde of a baking powder
company; they solemnly Insists that
eveiybody's conscience has alum In It
except their own."
When the Democrats during the
pendency of the Wilson bill were tiy
Ing to i each a conclusion, he tola
them that It would be "us easy to lit
tho hundtcd-headed dog of the ancient
fable with u straw hat as to put an
Intelligible, tariff platform under the
feet of the demociatlc party." And
It was he who first chatacterlzd Ma
jor MoKinley as "tho advance agent
A MAN OF mtAlNS.
Hut Mr. Dolllver is moie than a
humorist. Ills speeches are noted fjr
trelr bioadth and throughnc-s ns well
as for their stt Iking Interest He has
siMiken In neaily eveij laige city in
the country. Among lis most noted
ndresses weie those at the McKlnley
bamitiet at MidKon Square Garden In
1SS0, at the Lincoln dlnn.r of the Re
publican Club In New Yoik, befoie the
Hoston Merchants' Association and to
the veteians on Memotial day at Get
tysburg and at Aillngton.
Although still under forty, he has
been, within the last ten yeais, thrc
times chairman of the iepubllca.ii state
convention of Iowa, and the speechps
that he has made in congress would
fill a largo book.
There was a time In Mr. Dolllvet's
life when the future did not look so
cherry as now. Ho had been graduat
ed In 1875 from the Untveisity of Weit
Virginia of which Institution, by th
way, he recently declined an invitation
to become president. Ho found It
absolutely Impossible to get a place to
eutn a living, even at manual labor.
Times were hard in his native state,
and he did not seem to fit In anywhere
He accordingly pushed Westward and
taught school in Illinois, one winter
In the count! y and another as princi
pal of a high school at Sandwich Hav
ing read law theie nm afteiward In
Morgantown, West Vliglnia, he i-ettled
In Iowa and built up a tlulving prac-
I tlce prepaiatory to coming to congress
Ills nncestors were New Englnnders,
and so famous as sallots and fisher
men In the Colonial dnvs that a head
land of the Hsse coast of Massa
chusetts Is still known ns Dolllver's
neck. This geographical nnme fur
nished much diversion fot his enemies
In 1S94, During a severe storm that
5 ear some vessels sttanded on the
headland, and some populist news
papers in Iowa, bearing In mind the
sttong prohibition leanings of the com
munity In which the congressman
lived, thought it a great Joke to tell
of the wrecks on the Massachusetts
coast under such titles as: "Four
schooners went ashoio last night on
Dolllvet's neck" They also hinted fa
cetiously that that sort of thing was
getting very common among states
men of Dolllvet's" sort.
Mr. Dolllver's father, who Is now
eighty-one ears of age, was nn Itln
ei ant Methodist minister in West Vir
ginia. Ho used to do his circuit on
horseback, and relates many Intel cst
Ing Incidents of the saddle-bag period
of the church's history. He Is now
somewhat Infirm In body, but keenly
active in mind and thoroughly Inter
ested in everything. He went thiough
the new libraiy of congress a few dns
ago, nnd took great delight in reciting
the whole of the passages there quoted
In patt. When asked for his genet al
opinion of tho structure, ho said- "I
never expect to see anything so beauti
ful again until I stand In the house not
made with hands, eternal In the
heavens." That Is perhaps the richest
tribute the llbiary hns had
In his bo hood In West Virginia the
present lepresentatlve acquired much
reputation for other than statesman
like traits. Dining one great Juno
freshet he performed prodigies of valor
In swimming out after logs which came
down the river near his home, getting
astride of them and steering them Into
poit. This he did for several days, and
when he left for the west n few months
afterwaid some of the old settlers re
nvoi ked that It was too bad to lose a
boy vv ho would make such a magnifi
cent rlverman if he would only remain
During the last campaign, Mr. Dol
llver constructed a large tent which
would acconimodato 3,000 people. This
he carried about from place to place in
his congressional dlsttlet, und held
meetings In it, at which local bands
provided Instrumental music and coun
try glee clubs discoursed stirring songs
Ve is a signal success as a political
speaker. In the campaign of 1884, his
gift first attracted national nttentlon.
Mr. Iilalne heard him speak several
times, and was so much impressed that

The congressman's popularity nt
