HENRY WATTKIISON'. to reileeni the South from despair and heal the wounds thn wur had made: one lived to fulllll his dream; he was Henry W. Orady. The other great spirit was his colaborer, Henry Wntterson. Colonel Watterson's lecture was largely devoted to an analysis of Lincoln's charac ter rather than bloBrnphlcal details, lie read many extracts fiom Lincoln's speech es, especially from the LVicoln-Dnugl.is de bate, tho Clettysburg speech, letters to members of his family and correspond ence that passed between him nnd mem bers of his cabinet. The lecture was In terspersed with fieqiient bursts of mag nificent eloquence. In, beginning the lecture Colonel Wattcr fon said: "The statesmen who signed the Declar ation of Independence nnd framed our constitution, the soldiers In blue and buff, ytlli noots and epaulets who leu the armies t' the revolution were what we ure wont jlcscrllie as gentlemen. They were rcng- L gentlemen; not all scions or the nrlt larlstocracy, but they nimo from poo.i IP-saxon ami .scou-n-irisn stock. The buckle and the rullleil shirt worked 111 peculiarly their own. Where shall ten a more inugiiincerii guiuy or fcnrshals'.' Not at Illenhelm nor In the lee on tho Itliine. The public men I first half of the ilrst ceiitiirv of this lie were distinguished for dltrnlty of It nnd sobriety of behavior. Not (III fiiestluti of African slavery cot Into American politics did concrcss become a beer garden. IliiKged, puissant, were those men, so that when the volcano burst forth the.ro appeared In the lurid glaie on every liand (treat human bowlders. Soft words buttered no parsnips with ihem. The Is sue was human slavery acalnst human freedom, slave labor against free labor. It Involved a conlllci as Inevitable as It was irrepressible. No sooner had the camptlrcs of the revolution died out than there was a Miece'.-ir.n of forest tires which batlled the efforts of the great men rylng to put them out. W'ehitur and Clay and the others compromised, but It only delayed the fatal hour. Tho still mall voice of emancipation broke Into the ry of abolition and this cry swelled in volume to a roar. The mysterious descent IW- I'ttcred One Pregnant Sentence, on Harper's Terry niliiht have warned all men like a lire bull in tin: nlKlit of the contlagratlon that was to come. "At this, critical lime there appeared In the Northern camp a long, ungainly, lank and cadaverous Hsure. Ho was ut out with Hogarth's line, but ho carried an air of seriousness If not a suggestion of power. He uttered pne pregnant sentence and then he disappeared for iv time. That ut terance was this: 'A house divided ag.lut Itself cannot stand; this count! y cannot exist halt slave und half fu-e; but I do not expect the house to fall nor tho caun try to be divided.' (Applause.) Tho man was Abrahqm Lincoln l.ppUue.) "Who was this being destined In his mother's arms, for cradle ho had none, to so wonderfully affect the ago In which ho liven I will pass over the events in his ear y life and come to that great de bate with Douglas, In which, thuuijh ho was defeated, he yet won the presidency. He had Douglas at a fatal disadvantage. The ls3U0 was slavery now and the con science of thu people was set ugalust It. iijuugias roue an cooing uu,e.

Mr. Sewitnl was the Ilrst lo experl6iyce th Oijcomnture of bin temerlly. At tle 1 1 e of the tlrt month of the ndtnlnlstrnuoi. he cehl lo Mr. Lin loin a forie n,' mi -.,i!,n nmong which were, thpoc: That i upl.inatlotiH be do. inni1e.l fromJ-'ranie mil Hpmii mid, If hot p.uini... ,' j.iiniu w,ir lie iiecinie.i nK.lltlsi them, and 1li.it rpl in.iiioni b ibinmnded from llnnlnul nnd ltu-l.i. Think of HI t1,'. '7 inn" a roiunern ' onieucrncy had nlreni been , m,itilihed. Wc had but to bat our eye at lhiglnnd and llussl.i or I'rnnco and Spiln to have n iimuiruple alliance formed which would sweep down upon us. Mr. Lincoln sent In resisinse to this extraordinary communication a mem orable reply, In which he said that he would outline the policy of the admin istration and that bo expected in carry ing out the policy to btiM' the advice of every member of the cabinet. This set tled at once and forever the question of who was president. "Lincoln was a Southern man: he was born in Kentucky; bis Ilrst sweetheart was a KtitledKP; his wife was a Tood, and dur ing all the wild contention before the war tin d during all the mad delirium of the war not one unkind word against tho South ever fell from his lips. Ho was a leader, n statesman, n prose poet, but the South did not know him ns a friend, the one friend who had the will and the power tn save It from Itself. (Applause.) It was the will of Cod that the very Idea of slavery should be obliterated. He Htruck Lincoln down to attain It; he crushed the South to attain It, and t am here to-night to attest It. It Is Inconceivable that such a man could have aroused an antagonism so bitter. Ho was so gentle and Just, so unaffected nnd generous, that he might have been treated more gently. Shall we ever attain a Journalism which will re port tho utterances of public men and leave their motives unlmpugncd? It Is so easy to call names when we cannot answer arguments. Yet amid all the lurid passlun of the tltuo Ills sturdy llgure stands like an oak on a sandy beach, no slander rankling In Ills heart to sour the milk of human kindness which like a per ennial spring that rises mining the mots of a mighty tree, Mowed forth. Where did he get his style? Where did Shakes peare and Hums get theirs? Where 1I1 he get Ids grasp of men? Ask the Lord liod who raised up Luther and Napoleon. "Lincoln was not a civil service re former of the school of Orovor Cleveland but no custodian of absolute power ever exercised It ro benignly. Tho tragedy of his death Is one beside which all tragedies either real or epic are as nothing. In that narrow theater box that night were live personsthe chief executive of the nn tton nnd his proud and happy wife; a pair of betrothtil lovers anil a bntidsomo young actor. Tn nn Instant, with tho blinding iiuleknoui of enchantment, all this was tn change, one was to die by nn assassin's bullet; the wife was to dto a maniac; the young actor was tn wander with the brand of murder on his soul nnd tho curses of a world upon his name, to be shot down like n dog In a burning barn: of those two lovers, one was lo kill the other and then rile n raving maniac. "From Oaosar to IlismnrcU and Ulad slono the world has bad soldiers and statesmen who rose according to the law of cause nnd elfect. Thcv rose from the shadow and went Into the -mint; their lives had a beginning, a middle and an end; they came with rind's words upon their lips and went with Ood's light be tween the world and them. Hut the life of Abraham Lincoln might be chanted by a Greek chorus as the prologue and epL toguo of the world's most Imperial theme. (Aptilation.) II" was lowly as the son of fjod. What his real ancestry was wo know not. 1 see him a boy of tender years weeping over his dead mother; then the boy with nn chart but his mind and no rudder but his undisciplined will; then the young man played on by strange dreams; then the practical man busy with tho workaday duties of the world; then the leader of a party; then the leader of a nation and then lying dead In the eap Uo, the last measure of duty to his coun try fulfilled, with bis country's ling about htm. His was Ihe genius of common sense. Where did Shakespeare get ills genius? Where did Mozart get his music? AVhnJO bund smoto the lowly nlownmn's simple lyre'.' In all the annals of tho poor there will be nn grander, no mora nigged nnd American storv than In the life and death of Abraham Lincoln." (Ap plause.) i'oi.ici: i-LNsiov him.

Wc do not bdlcvo In Ihelr peculiar relig ious views. Wo cannot cuter Into tho splr It of their Kitcrlflre. nnd therefore vvn don't slnd.v their habits nt life II Is hot iiri'essury to believe as they do, nor to net us they do, but wc can nnd do rerpect their honesty of purpose, both ns fur as Ihelr principles nro concerned and lltelr worldly deeds. Almost every prominent man has some one specially In wlilrh ho excels, especially If he ling ileVotnl his llfo to Its study nnd development. In one particular the Shakers excel above all others, and above nil other men or classes of men. This Is ill the cultivation of medicinal herbs nnd plants. They have made this n study for more than one hun dred your. They nre nlo expert In ex tracting ft om them their peculiar essences nnd medlclniil virtue . Tills Is their peculiar Industry. Their lives have been devoted to It. lly It they are inippurteil. Thpy excel In this brunch, ns do the Monks of the Order of ltMiedlc tine with their funwus liqueur. Now, this lifelong study on tho part of tho Shakers has not been In vain. They have accomplished much good. Their medi cinal extracts and cordials lira known throughout the world. The Shaker Digestive Cordial Is probably tho most successful nrllcle ever given tn the public. It Is noln cure for all diseases It don't pretend to be; but one dlsctise It will cure, and that Is Indigestion. It Is not protended that It will euro anything else, and a stlfforrr has not long to wait to see the nsult. Almost the Ilrst dose will give relief, nnd, If continued, a permanent cure will follow-. The Shaker motto Is 'To try nil things nnd hold fast to that which Is good." For this reason the Shakers have put Into the hands of the retail druggists who sell their Digestive Cordial, small trial bottles, which can bo had for 10 cents each, so that for this -.ftiiall sum tho reader can know If the Digestive Cordial is adapted to his case. MILDER THAN EXPECTED. (lOYlllt.NOi: STONX'.I ItHPl.V TO CO.M--MI.SMOMIK COX'.") I.IITTIIK. 11m Itolgu.ltlou Accepted mid In iVr Tcrso Sentences the Hovirnor Make Known Ills Stand III Police .Matters. fiovernor Stone has accepted the resig nation of Police Commissioner Wiley O. Cox. It was neyer for an Instant suggested that hiwould not accept It, but there was some question "ns lo the time of accept ance und the tenor ot the farewell letter from the chief executive to the member of tho police boaid. Those who anticipated a roast will be disappointed In Oovernor Stone's letter. It Is a little frigid, to be sure, but, In tho main, better tempered tnnn the politicians expected. There Is ono fact made clear In It, however, and that Is, Oov-ernor Stone will not be swerved ft 0111 the course he has determined upon In the Kansas City police department. Chief Spoers will tlnd little comfoit In the latter, and Colonel li win may possibly lead between the Hues a happy message. This Is Oovernor Stone's letter to Mr. Cox: "Jefferson City, Mo., Feb. 27, 1S95. "To 'Wiley O. Cox, lisq., Kansas City, Mo. "Dear Sir: I am In receipt of your favor of the 26th Inst., inclosing your resignation as a member of the boaid of police com mlssloneis. d am not .1 little surprised at the spitlt of your letter, and the terms In which you have couched It ure such that I do not care to reply. It Is suniclcnt for mo to say in a word or two that my sole de sire is to give to the people of Kansas City a police administration that will be thor oughly cttlclcnt. I want a force there that will aid tho proper authorities In preventing crime of all kinds, ami that will aid In fer reting out and punishing criminals. I want no man on the force who Is Indifferent to ciime, much less one who sympathizes with it, or who condemns any public olllclal In his efforts to suppress or punish It. He ond uceumpllrihlnK these ends, 1 have no interest in the police force of Kansns City, but 1 Intend that these ends shall be ac complished if within the range of possibility. 1 will not be turned aside a hair's lueadth by any Inltuence whatever. Your resigna tion is accepted. Veiy respectfully, "WILLIAM J. STONK." In nn Interview Oovernor Stone wns ask ed by the Jolferion City correspondent of tho Journal if he had any criticism to make on the letter ot Mr, Cox und the Times' editorial. He replied: "You must excuse me from expressing an opinion of either, I cannot, of course, engage in a tuwspaper wranglu of that klpd. Aside from ull that I can say the people of Kansas City are entitled to an honest and cllb tent administration of 110 llco nifalrs. My mly ambition Is to see that they have It. The ptess and tho people hold me, above everybody else, responsible for any failure, or misconduct. I want the police force to do Its duty absolutely, neith er more nor lis:-, at all times and In all emergencies. I am fully determined Hint so far as I nm connected with the affairs of Kansas City, the rights of tho people shall be protected. It Is a hard tight I am making. I frequently find myself op posed whcie I had occasion to expect sup port. Hut I will not swerve an Inch. I know what I am doing. I know a great many things the public have not suspected. 1 am striving III my own way to serve tho best Interests of the people. Mlsiepresenta tlon will not deter me."

A Holmes street cnblo train, In charge of Orlpnian James Hrown, became unmanage. able on a steep grade near Twenty-llfth street yesterday morning and was soon speeding rapidly down hill.

This did not stop tho cable car, which kept running until the end of tho down grade was reached nt Klghteenth street. The car was well filled, but none of the passengers was hurt.

This statement Is be lieved by the butchers. At the meeting Inst evening; the for iiml replies of the parlteVs wore received ntul were to the effect that thrv hail done 11I Hint they deemed proper nnd rensoimble for the butchers and that the retail shops would be rniillniied ntul the charges for ilrnyago would continue as hetetofore. It was when this wns rentl flint nn expression was called for nlul the members responded Hint they pre ferred to trade with their friends.

For some, reason the association blames the whole Bffuir on the Armour people, nnd have slnte-il Hint every .uher llrm III the city wns willing to make tho desired con cessions but wore prevented by the stand taken by the Armours.

One of the members stated that this morning the association would noti fy the national association of the action taken nnd Hint the light was to go on ull over the country wherever the unions nro formed. This was practically denied by President Howes, who said the retail ers hero were going to try to handle tho affnlr nlone, and In case the light wns mnile so strong ns to be necessary the national association wns to be asked to render assistance and carry tho light all over tho country. The retailers nlso appointed a com mittee to Investigate the nllefred com bine of the packers In the matter ot prices und regtilntlons for tho business nnd lay the whole matter before the grand jury und try to got the packers Indicted for violation of tho nnti-com-blnc laws of the state. This was tried last slimmer, but no Indictments were returned after the liiveslliration was made. The butchers claim to have 11 very much stronger enso at this time nnd they claim they will bo able to se cure the Indictment certainly. The packers, It Is claimed, are consid ering the matter of taking off the wag ons lit tho city nnd letting the butch ers who buy meats from them come nfter It In their own conveynnces, They claim that the deliveries, even with tho llxe-d charges for drnynge, nro a very much less expense than tho butchers would be put to by lmullim; their own meats. In case tho packers establish retail markets nt various places In the city nnd go actively Into the retail trade the situation In that business will very much resemble the sitttntion among tho coal men now, Tho owners and lurge .shlpD'-s re sell.nn- nt so sumll n nrnil. that tho sinnll man In the business Is being pinched to death In the struggle, and the pnekers could force that un happy condition on tho butchers In short order, If they chose to do so, und vir tually control the situation. Many nf the butchers nro iifrnltl tho packers nro renily to do It, and for that reason a butcher who Is well situated and doing well said Inst evening that he wns keep ing out of the association, for tho rea son that be was well off nnd did not euro to light whore he was liable to bo squeezed. Tho association claims to have strong organizations in forty-seven cities of tho country and that miy discrimination ngninst ono llrm Is certain to shnko tho business up ut a lively rate and cntise some notion in the matter.

A Universal Murrhtgn and Divorce Law Throughout llio Hulled States Advo-cllted-Ciilldrcu the Chief Sufferer- From Unhappy marriages Washington, Feb. 28. Complaints against the present system of divorce laws was the burden ot to-day's session of the na tional council ot women. Tho entire day session was devoted to this theme and a number of Interesting addresses wero de livered before a crowded house. Tho dis cussion was led by the olllclal report of the committee on divorce reform, read by, Chairman Dletrick, of -Massachusetts. It embodied responses received from a num ber of state governors who were asked to call tho attention of the legislatures to tho status of the divorce laws and to appoint a committee to consist of an equal number of men nnd women to consider the matter. The question, the report tnld, was ona vitally concerning the happiness and wel fare of 70,0n0,0i)0 people, of whom half aro of tho female sex, and added: "Women should thoughtfully consider tho slgnlll canco of the fact that thirty-one of thesa masculine servants of tho peoplo mado no response to this Just request or repre. sentntlve women. Only two, Oovernor Oreenhalge. of Massachusetts, and Gov ernor Hrown, of Hhodo Island, promised to do all In their nou-Ar to carrv out the re. quest. .The governor of Houtti Carolina wrote that that state had no divorce laws and its peoplo were better satlslleil than their neighbors whoso states havo divorce laws. Tho report said that the fact that twenty-three states have appointed bodies of men to tinker with divorce laws, with out appointing any women, ought to show women In what estimation tho men of tho Fulled States hold their opinions. The of ficials serving tho Interests of the United States cherish frank contempt for wom an's opinions and wishes was the conclu sion expressed In tho report. Mrs. Kllzabeth Utannls, of New York, president of the National civilization League, for the promotion of social purity, advocated a universal marriage and di vorce law throughout the federal govern ment, recognUlns no divorce except for adultery. Miss Harriet A.
