In our campaign songs emphasizing as
they do the live issues of political parties
and the personal traits of the candidates
l we have a fairly complete outline of
4 American history from Washington to
Cleveland somewhat biased perhaps but
an indisputable record nevertheless Like
1 the old Kngllsn ballads these electioneer
ing songs commemorate the change in
political thought from decade to decade
First off Une Father of his Country
the Immortal George in 17SI was elected
to the strains of the following somewhat
grandilloquent ode
Great Washington the heros come
Bach hart exulting hears the sound
Thousands to their deliverer throng
r And shout him welcome all around
Chorus
i Now in full chorus join the song
And shout aloud for Washinon
For his second election In 1792 although
there was a great deal of party strire
the tone of the songs still remained dig
nified as shown in the following verse
of the favorite federal song
No more shall anarchy bear sway
No petty states pinsue their way
But all united firm in one
Shall seek the general good alone
f chorus
Great Washington shall rule this land
r While Adams counsel aids his hand
The tunes to which the electioneering
songs were sung at this time were with
the exception at Yankee Doodle laminar
tunes Of Great Britain thus we find
Washington s praise sung to the air God
Save the Icing the federal song to the
i i tune Rule Bntanna Biack Steven and
King Williams Match also figuring in the
campaign of Washington second ejection
In 1S04 the stirring song Jefferson and
I Liberty and the tune A Cobbler There
tiss dtr sC lgIl1j
Vas assisted in JeffeiTons victory The
c campaign which brougnt in Madison and
Clinton in 1SOS produced many Embargo
Songs one of these set to the tune Toe
Snug Little Island is exceedingly clever
and one of the erse slices a inusicianiy
trend which is quite surprising for that
period of our countrys history Here it
3S
I wish that I could sing in Allegro mood
But the tunes are as stupid as Largo
Could I have my choice 1 would strain up
m > voice
Till it mapped all the strings of Em
t bargo
Chorus
uOh what a fiat key Embargo
A thorotghbase kind of Embargo
The parts never chime and tis set to no
f timct
i Tis a long winded tune of Embargo
I During the campaign appeared the Tag
Rag and Bob Tall sons in which the Jet
jersoman Kej > uDiicirs defended themselves 1
from the stgma cast upon them by the j i
f upper ten or silk stockings of Baltimore J i
The old favorite Scotch tune John Ander j
son My Joe began to do service as early i
I as 1112 and President Madison was un i
mercifully lampooner in those familiar
strairs in ve se Commencing James Mad i
is on my Joe Jim i I
I The collapse or the federal party during
i the war of 1S1214 owing to the Hartford
convention left Monroe to run virtually i
without opposition and a roaring song
from little Delaware entitled American I
r Perry sung to the tune of Abraham New
land helped to give spice and fun to the
campaign In a comical vein it relates
14 how the British commodore getting tired I
I of Jamaica rum and sherry concluded to
go and get some cheap American Perry I I
t but Hw taste was so deceptive that they j >
I I were greatly disappointed and rued their i i
i unlucky vagary i
I 1 Your licuors too hot j i
i Heap it still in the pot
j Ol1 cork your American Perry t
0 Oh this Ameripan Perry Fiery American 1
Parry i
1 ic By all that is evil
F1 Its a dose for the devil I
1 Oh curse your American Parry
I it The second election of Monroe being j j
t without any opposition the period was j
termed the eve of good feeling and I
electioneering sngs were not in vogue
though the military deeds of Jackson and i
Commodore P rys heroic victory on Lake
Erie furnished themes for popular songs l
to the tune of Bay of Biscay
The contest between Jackson and John
Quincy Adams developed no campaign I
musical literature unless an antitarn
eons to the tune of Ally Croker may be
so considered It is however most Inte
eating in view of the secession which oc
curred thirty KX years after to note the i
following lines which clearly indicate that >
the south had already been suspected of i
separation intensions
Say quake not Yankee brother now 1
Nor be in trepidation
ICo civil war w man nnr no
r Dsunlon of the nation
1i 4 When Jackson and Calhoun ran in 1S2S
with Adams and Clay for opponents the
poetic muse was compelled to pay tribute
both for and against the military hero
and for the first time the strains of the
+ Star Spangled Banner appeared with
praise of Adams and Clay the chorus
funning thus
While peace is still resting on cottage
and fold
ft With hearts turned to rapture lets hall
the bright day
c Beneath the bland influence of Adams and
Clay
g
While Yankee Doodle with its stac
cato and belliscose strains served again
to ridicule the same parties rln Adams
fall we sinned all again wo find the good
old Scotch song John Anderson My Joe
l Tolm tucked out in the following bel
ligerent dress which however Inappro
priate to the per tie and sooihlng strains
S XJf the melody must have been effective
as a campaign weapon
John Adams Q my Joe John
Your glorys fading fast
i And through your shattered fame John
Fierce yells the western blast
7 Wheil Jackson and Van Buren were
a acainst Henry Clay in 1E32 the
C J
k
first states rights song made its appear
ance and another which gained great
I popularity was entitled The Breeches ot
Blue and was sung to the tune Bonnets
of Blue The gist of the song is found
in these lines
I
Economys good in its place
Its good to have Breeches of Blue
I Its better to patch up your old panta
i loons
i i Than pay cut money for new
i But the songs in praise of Old Hickory
j were soon forgotten in the contest be
tween the Loco Focos and the Whgb
and though the struggle was fierce be
I tween Van Buren and nis opponents at the
head of whom was General Harrison or
UntO out one Whig pong and that written
to the tune of the Star Spangled Ban
I ner arose in the path of Van Burens
triumph Before the next election how
ever things had changed There Was
TJUSIC In tne Air and General Harrisons
nomination in 1810 was the bignal for an
i outburst of musical eloquence quite un
exampled in preceding campaigns A song
I written by an old soldier who fought
under the general at Fort Megs and en
titled Old Fort Megs sung to a favorite
I song of that time entitled Ol Lonely in
the Forest Shade became a great favor
ite
The battle of Tippecanoe was eulogized
to the strains of the Star Spangled Ban
ner and the heroic pride of the voters
stirred to the highest pitch by a vivid
description of that great struggle with
the savage foe Their home sentiment
j I also was appealed to most forcibly with
I the Buckeye Cabin song set to the tune
I of The Highland Laddie the chorus of
which ran as follows
i
I I i I was built among the merry boys that
1 wield the plough and spade
Where the log cabin stands in the Bonnie
j j Buckeye shade
i Another most inspiring marching song
i vas entitled When This Old That Was
New and the Old Oaken Bucket was
chained to the stump so to speak and
made to pour out the praises of The Sol
dier of Tippecanoe To Yankee Doodle
the Harrison men set a number of verses
with the closing line Log Cabin and
Hard Cider to which they marched while
they sung The writer became personally
f acquainted with an old gentleman of neai
j j ly eighty who remembered well the Log
j j i Cabin and Hard Cider song but more
especially dilated upon the power of the
I song Tippecanoe and Tyler Too which
j I he sad was the most popular of all the
Whig songs It was sung to the classical
strains ot The Little Pigs Tail and
as an illustraton of electioneering dog
geral one verse is here given
What has caused this great commotion
motion
Our country through
It is the ball rolling on
Chorus
For Tippecanoe and Tyler too
For Tppecanoe and Tyler too
And with them well beat little Van
Van Van Van is a used up man
And with them well beat little Van
Who after reading the foregoing will
not believe in the power of music Cer
tainly the words possess no charm but
bragbut the swing of the tune carried
it ail over the country and millions of peo
pie sang TIppecanoe and Tyler too A
significant fact is noted that of the ten
campaign songs of that election but one
was for the Democratic nominee that
was entitled Bullet Proof and was
sung to Aud Lang Sync
During the electioneering for James K
Polk when Henry Clay opposed him the
following songs were invoked in the in
ter < ft of Clay and Frelinghuysen
Clay and Frelinghuysen The Locas
Hate Like Plsen The Mill Boy of the
Sashes Old Hal o the West The
Wig Chief and ExSpeaker Polk of
Tennessee
For Polk the following The Hickories
and Down with Henry Clay The Nom
inec Two Dollars a Day and Roast
Beef Henry Clay My Joe Hal this
latter sung to the tune of John Ander
son My Joe
Of all these the first only became well
known
But in the campaign of 48 when Gen
eral Taylor was elected several songs
became very popular among these were
Toe the Mark Tis Taylor Can sung
to the tune of Dandy Jim of Caroline
Old Jacks Coming and Rough and
Ready the latter set to Yankee Doo
dIeThese
These were devoted chiefly to recount
ing Taylors military achievements The
Storming of Monterey etc General
Winfield Scott in his campaign opposing
Per 2 had several good electioneering
songs one set to the tune Scots wha
hoe vi Wallace Bled but the Demo I
crats made the welkin ring with The
Old Granite State and won the race

I It Is surprising how little there was of
music in the campaign of 56 when Bu I
I chanan was elected over Fremont and
Dayton and Millard Fillmore Of the
orp
oJi
three songs for Fremont one was wriitcn i
to the Marseaise and was quite a
pretentious effort the chorus closing with I
this line Free Speech Free Press Free
Soil Free Men rcmont and Victory
i Another WPS set to Auld Ling sync
i i and the other to the tune of Dandy Jim
of Caroline with the line Free Speech
i Free Kansas and Fremont The Dem
ocrats were satisfied with some cheap
J verses set to Wait for the Wagon and
I a song making a direct bid for the Irish I
i vote to the tune of Nora Creina
It was In the campaign whch resulted I
iin Lincolns election 1S60 that election I
I eenns made special use of music In I
I deed since Tlpnecanoo and Tyler Too
no election had produced so many songs I
The quadruple character of the cohtest
including as it did two Democratic tickets
i Douglas regular and Breckenridge se 1
cession with Bell and Everett on neutral I
i groundno doubt contributed to that rc
suit though the tremendous issue which
developed as the campaign continued
I stirred the patriotic imrmlses of every
one according to their knowledge and pre
judices
Bell and Everett had two songs neither
I of which gained popular favor The
Breckenridge wing of the Democratic
party had one song to the tune pf Auld
t o Jt 1ilt
Lang Syne while the Dowries shelters
aroused enthusiasm singing thc sons
Douglas and His Men to the air
Diana ye Hear the Slogan the other
song used by them was entitled Lin
I ccJnfs Picture and was intended to be
funny
I Of the several Lincoln songs Im bound
I to admit that the least meritorious was
I the most generally sung as a boy still
o too young to vote I remember joining
in the song entitled The Lincoln Hoss
and Stephen A sung to the tune of Du
da The following verse will indicate
the literary 1 quality of the song
Theres an old plow Hess whose name
is Dug
Duda duda
I Hes short and thicka regular plug
Duda duda day
Chorus
j Were bound to work all night
Were bound to work all day
I j Ill bet my money on the Lincoln Hoss
Who bets on Stephen A
I The lively air so simple that a child
I could sing it and easy to march by ren
I dered this very popular especially in the
i west When Lincoln was reelected in
64 there were few campaign songs in
the proper sense of the term But the
war songS Battle Cry of Freedom and
the enlistment songs Ve Are Coming
Father Abraham were made to do loyal 1
yirvice The opposition were inspired
I with a very sickly eiiort enutieU
I Lincolns Dodge set to Yankee Doodle
a satire on We Are Coming Father Ab
I raham and The Hour and the Man
set to the air of Bonny Dundee The
I I one single song of the electioneering type
I i for Lincoln was a marching song en
i titled Then Go for Old Abe and Be
i Marching Along
The royal battle between the Republi
cans and Democrats in OS when U S
I i Grant was elected over Seymour pro
i duced for the latter some Carpet Bag
I ger songs and a Bond Barons Song
I set to the air Tramp Tramp Tramp
hich scored the loyal gamblers who
I had grown rich in bond deals and specu
lations and contractors who had fur
t nished shoddy goods to the Boys in
i Blue For the great general who had
j j never lost a battle Marching Through
I Georgia Ulysses the Tanner to the
I tune Jockey Hat and Feather and
j j Grant Boys in Blue to the air of The
j Red White and Blue served to arouse
I the enthusiasm and awaken personal ad
miration for the silent soldier An
I
illustration of a music dealers enterprise
and push in Chicago during this cam
j paign is related of a firm who in their
eagErness to bo first in the field and
knowing that Grant would be the presi
j dentiai nominee of the Republicans fore
stalled the action of the convention by
1 getting a song written and set up leav
j ing a vacant space for the refrain they
i also had a lithograph title with a picture
I of Grant all ready leaving a vacant space
1 for his running mate whoever it should
be As soon as Colfax was nominated
I the poet composer finished the refrain
tho lithographer got to work on the pic
I ture An advertisement of it appeared
in the morning papers which contained
the news of the nomination and the next
I day the song was on sale in the store
< rr ss r
Grants second election was character
I Iszed by a song of The Old White Hat
i for Greeley and Hurrah for Horace
I I Greeley to the time of Dixie the latter
I having in the north become to be con
sidered a rebel song The Republicans
i replied with When This Old White Hat
Was New in which ridicule was poured
into the ranks of the enemy and
Greeleys former bitter opposition to his
I present friends was sarcastically enlarged
upon
I The Tilden and Hays campaign of 76
j was notable for the absence of Republi
I can electioneering musical inspiration
I There was one Peter Cooper song one
I j i greenback song and one very poor at
tempt at satire upon Tilden and Hen
I dricks called The Kangaroo Tcket
I written for a Republican club in Indian
I apolis There were two Tilden songs
one entitled The Radical Rogues In
I which the sins of omission and commis
sion of the Republcan administraton
I were unmercifully elaborated upon and
one Tilden and Reform commencing
I Come all ye honest Democrats let each
man raise his voice
Little camptign music was used in the
Garfield and Hancock contest of liP and
that little contained nothing worthy of i
note The great struggle between I
Plumed Knight and The Sheriff of
Evil in S4 gves us a curiosity in that
the great German war sOng Die Wacht
am Rhein makes its appearance with
I some clever verses entitled The Plumed
Knight and Black Eagle the latter be I
ing the sobriquet of General John A
j Logan One verse follows I
They come They come The mighty
twain I
Mid storm and sunshine flowers and
grain
The Plumed Knight looks to the skies
And onward the Black Eagle flies
The man from Maine was sung to
the air The Sword of Bunker Hill but
the most effective of the lot was Hurrah
for Jimmy Blame set to Marching
Through Georgia
The Democrats went for their opponents I
with a song called Turn the Rascals
Out a single serve of which will serve
to satisfy our curiosity
The conflict rages fiercely boys
Our chieftain leads the van
We march in bold array my boys
Against the Tattooed Man
From north and south from east and
west
All loyal freemen shout
Well work against corruptions host
And Turn the Rascals Out
inc wen Known college song Good
Bye My Lover Good Bye was made to
servo both for and against General Har
rison in his campaign against Cleveland
The Republican shouters sang
Protection is the peoples wealth
Good bye free traders good bye
And we shall guard the nations wealth
Good bye free traders good bye
while the Democrats retorted with
A dollar a day is enough for you
Good bye Cheap Bennie good bye
No washes men in the U S crew
Good bye cheap Bennie good bye
The favorite old song Tippecanoe and
Tyler Too was revived again during
this contest and many an old grizzled
voter who had voted for the hero of Fort
Meigs and Tippecanoe renewed their
youth and enthusiasm for the Young
Tippecanoe in the stirring strains of
nearly fifty years previous changed to
lippecanoe and Morton Too
A song of TheOld Bandanna in honor
of the Good Old Roman Allen G
Thurman Clevelands running mate be
came very popular in the west while the
the favorite tune Tenting Tonight was
made to carry into a brief popularity a
song called Young Tippecanoe
The last campaign was chiefly inter
esting musically for the number of labor
bongs developed The Tippecanoe en
thusiasm seemed somehow to have ex
hausted itself though Grandfathers
Hat was praised successfully and Good
Bye Forever to Grover watt shouted to
Marching Through Georgia by the
Traveling Mens Republican club The
rise of the Populists is signalized by a
number of songs however Labors
Sweet Bye and Bye Good Bye Old
Forty Good
Bye indicating their gen
eral trend The silver craze also ap
pears to the air Marching Through
Georgia commencing thus Sound the
good old bugle with a bmetallic song
This tunic tune was made the veilclo
of Democratic ideas In a song commenc
ing Bring the good old frying pan were
going to fry some fat The satire of
this may be judged by one of the refrains
which ran thus
Hurrah hurrah for Dudley and for
Quay
Hunali hurrah for teaching us the way
To carry any doubtful state on election
day
While we are frying for Bennie
Already the present contest Is fitted out
with a True Blue Republican campaign

TIIHJ YOUNGEST OF METALS IS

j Aluminum the youngest of all met
als is rapidly coming into general use
j It was discovered by Frederick Woh
l ler a German professor in 1827 but to
1
St Clair Deville a Frenchman belongs
the honor of being the founder of the
aluminum industry I
The first article made of this metal
was in compliment to Louis Napoleon
who had helped Devillea baby rat
I
tle for the infant prince imperial
REDUCED FROM 200 TO 48 CENTS
I A POUND I
I In 1855 when the first aluminum i t
company was formed the cost of a
pound of the metal was about 200 I j
In 18S9 Charles M Hall of Oberlin 0 I
I patented an electrotype process He
with a few of his friends then started
j a small plant on the bank of the Alle
I gheny river eighteen miles above Pltts
i burg The first year the company pro
duced seventyfive pounds of alumin
II um a day which they sold for 450 a
pound In 1S95 a company built a I
large plant at Niagara Falls and this I
year they are building additional
works When these are completed they I
will have an output of 11000 pounds
dally This improvement will put the I
United States in front as the largest I
aluminum producing country in the
world
ADAPTED TO GENERAL USE I
Aluminums weight is about onethird j j
I of that of iron and only steel of the I
i highest quality and the best aluminum 1
bronze will give a greater strength for
I a given weight than aluminum It
stands high in the list of malleable
metals and can be drawn into wire
l230th of an inch in thickness It is
an excellent conductor of electricity
and would at 20 cents a pound take
the place of copper for all electrical
j t purposes
I In ship building where lightness is l
I demanded aluminum meets every re
i quiremcnt Corrosion and galvanic ac j j
tion are easily overcome by properly i
I painting the part subject to the action
of the water and by using aluminum
rivets France and Germany have sev
eral torpedo boats made of aluminum
and numberless pleasure yachts are be
ing constructed every year of this I
metal
In Germany two army corps are I
equipped with aluminum which in j
eludes chevrons and every article of
metal that is carried on the person
Qven the buttons on their clothes and
the pegs in their shoes Their swqrd
bayonet scabbards and contents are
also made of tne metal In Paris there
is d cabmadeof alunilmim and some
I
4 4
b4
of our best racing records have been
made by horses carrying aluminum
I shoes and pulling aluminum sulkies
For decorating purposes it is better
than silver because the air which
blackens silver so quickly has no ef
fect on it The president of one of the
largest palace car companies in this
country is said to have remarked that
the price alone kept aluminum from
being used entirely in car decoration
A short time ago an enterprising firm
in Ohio built several aluminum duck
ing boats as well as a number of row
boats They found to their surprise
they were filling a long felt want es
pecially in the ducking boat as this
craft was extremely light and non
sinkable
Price has been the only drawback to
the general use of aluminum but that
will soon be such that the rich and
poor alike will be able to enjoy the
great advantages which the metal of
fers It seems likely that the year 1897
will see aluminum selling at less than
35 cents a pound
Thus the growth of this wonderful
metal has been spreading out in all di
rections A few weeks ago an alum
inum bicycle was shipped to an emi
nent politician in England Mr Bal
four Here again its beauty and non
tarnishable qualities together with its
lightness make it most desirable The
possibilities of flying machines and
alumnum railway carriages occur to
one when one thinks of the gigantic
strides the metal has already made
A CASE OF AN ALUMINUM LEG
Two years ago a friend of mine met
with a frightful accident He was run
over by a Brooklyn trolley car Of the j
results of this catastrophe I knew
nothing when I met him some months I
later at a ball He was walking across i
the room when he suddenly tripped 1
and fell I rushed to help him and
found he had fainted so to avoid a
scene I picked him up and carried him
up stairs I was surprised to find
how light he was but supposed he had
been ill and consequently lost flesh As
I was leaving the room I heard some I
thing drop behind me with a metallic
ring and at the same time I felt my
friend grow lighter Not daring to
look back I hastened to get up stairs
as quickly as possible and as I turned
at the top of the stairs a man ran up
saying excuse me sir you have
dropped something handing me at the
same time my friends right leg an
other use to which aluminum may be
put Cooks of the twentieth century
will no doubt demand that their em
ployers supply them with aluminum
cooking utensils as the metal is an ex
cellent conductor of heat and it is al
most impossible to scorch anything
while cooking Dentists are already
using it in making plates etc as al
uminum has this advantage over gold
that on contact with metallic sub
stances no disagreeable electric cur
rent is set up For scientific instru
ments such as sextants transits lev
els etc where the inertia of a heavy
moving part is to be avoided aluminum
is the metal par excellence PhOto
graphers find aluminum flash light
powder better than the present magne
sium as it is cheaper and not so liable
to explode in preparation and produces
none of the white fumes so disagree
able in the use of magnesium Amongst
other uses for aluminum are keys
watches musical instruments car

ADVANTAGES FOR COINAGE I
The substitution of aluminum for
copper and nickel has long been a sub I
ject of debate and a bill is now before
the house of representatives authoriz
ing the secretary of the treasury to I
make a trial of aluminum coins The
advantages of aluminum for coinage I
are these
FirstIt takes a fine impression
when stamped I
Second Wears remarkably well
Third It resists corroson better than I
cooper bronze or any of the common
metals Besides this if it does corrode
slightly the salts formed are harmless
which is more than can be said of any
other metal
Fourth Weight for weight it is
f I cheaper than copper and only slightly
dearer than nickel alloy
Fifth Lightness At present to
quote Professor Richards the people
of the United States are carrying
around probably 3000 tons of minor
coins Aluminums weight is about
onethird of that of copper or nickel
so we could reduce that weight 2000
tons by adopting aluminum The
horseless carriages which are attract
ing so much attention now could be
most advantageously built of alumi
num thereby making them not only
much lighter but much stronger Med
ical instruments are being made of
aluminum The harmlessness of the I
metal makes it exceptionally desirable
for use in surgery and when a man has
to be braced up he will find aluminum
a great comfort During the coming
political campaign many a doughty
leader will wish his legs were made of
I
aluminum Aluminum is made from I
a clay which is composed of alumi
nit ferric oxide silica water and iti
j tanic acid The transformation of this
I clay lade a beautiful white metal is
accompanied by dissolving alumfna into
a fused bath composed of the fluorides
of aluminum and sodium and then
passing an electric current by means
I of a carbonaceous anode through the
fused mass In other words the pure
I aluminum made from ore by a chemical
I process is stirred into a solvent bath
of double fluorides of aluminum and
I sodium and when this is dissolved an
electric current is then sent through
I this mixture
i RELIC OF THC ARMADA
In the course of the dredging opera
I tions at Calais in connection with the
deepening of the harbor Entrance a
I valuable find of silver has been made

mont of Wilil Animals P
The late Frank Ives Frayne of the
blood and thunder drama had a won
derful knack in managing the animals
that appeared on the stage with him
To inquirers who wondered how he did
it he always replied that the secret lay
in his coolness In time of danger and
in his presence of mind He called it
nerve But there was something else
in Frayne besides nerve His animals
were always in his thoughts and while
he ruled them with a rod of iron they f
obeyed him because he instinctively
knew when to be hard and when to be
gentle In summer on his farm near
Madison N J he had many of his
wild animals tied to the posts of the
board fence Any pleasant day Frayne
might be seen walking along the fence
petting or feeding two or three bears
some monkeys and hyenas and other
members of his curious happy family
strung at intervals in front of the
house Frayne was very proud of Old
Duke or Bob Ingersoll as his stage r
name went the lion that killed his
Clydesdale stallion four years ago It
was Fraynes habit to carry in hi
pocket pictures of Old Duke which hir
gave to his friends at the conclusion oe
a story how Old Duke had killed three
men at one blow each with his paw
The story was founded on fact f
Frayne had photographs also of Old
Duke lying down with a bantam hen
perched on his mane The hen and lion
were friends for several years No one
but Frayne had ever been able to con
quer Old Duke
Is Mrs Dcdgerly in deep mourn
