post
tion, fixed to take place in ïîêw
Oilenus next February, A states
man so eminent as Mr. Hendricks ;
a mt.n who has served his Stute in
the Gubernatorial Chair in the
National Senate with such dintiu
guished success and high report as
have characterized hjs public
career, roast necessarily be a con
spicnons figure under sfny uireuin
stances. But when we consider
Mr. Hemlricks' record as a politi
cian, the broad liberality of* his
attitude toward the South, and the
natnre of the service he has al
ways been prompt and eager to
render her it would seem that, in
seeming him as the exponent aud
patron of so important a commer
cial and industrial enterprise, the
managers of the Exposition have
accomplished &-brilliriiit »«suit. It
can hardly be said that there in
nnv political significance attached
to Gov. Hendricks' visit here, and
yet his cowing at such a time ami
on the eve of ihe tremendous cam
paign of 1876, iu which he. is cer
tain to take an important place,
wjll exert an influence which we
cun not now foresee, perhaps, but
which we may have occasion to re
member and be thankful for long
afterward. |
We may safely leave this phase
c»f the matter to future develop
ments, however ; contenting onr
setves, for tire preset»*, with oou
gratulations to the Board of Com
missioners upon the ability'and
sagacity they have thus far man
ifested in the enuso of Southern
interests, and especially upon the
happy inspiration which led tin m
to prepare for us so grateful u sur
prise ns the presence and partici
pation of Gov. Headricks. It is
an angary of fo»tnnate retrait». It
will surmuud the event with n halo
of popular approval, and secure
for h the very widest range of use
fill ness.
