(SECOND LINCOLN LETTEtt.)
Oakford, Jan., 23, 1914.
Editor News:
In 1S60 Abraham Lincoln was
elected President of the United
States, and assumed the duties
of office on March 4. 1861. It
was the intention of i Lincoln to
use every means of conciliation
consistent with the policy he
deemed essential to the national
interest to pursue. On one
point, however, his resolution
was steadfast, to permit no se
cession, and before his assump
tion of office, secession was as
resolutely determined on the
other side.
In 1856 chief justice Taney, in
voicing the decision of the United
State's Supreme Court, decided
that a negro was a chattel, that
the compromise of 1820, known
as the Missouri Compromise,
which admitted Missouri as a
slave State but forbade slavery
North of 36 degrees 30 minutes
North latitude was unconstitu
tional, and that a slave owner
might settle with his property
where he pleased, in any territo
ry. Following this came John
Brown's raid into Virginia his
attempt to excite a slave insur
rection, and his death upon
the gallows There was nothing
for it but war, and into war the
country rapidly drifted.
The Presidential campaign of
1860, was the most confused in
the whole history of American
politics. There was talk, of se
cession in the air There were
notorious war preparations in the
South. The North was divided.
Every man felt that parties
would have to be rearranged and
new political frontiers defined.
The platform of the Republi
can party, under which Lincoln
was elected, is the most sig
nificant in the political history of
the Republic, and contains the
essence of all its history since
that date. It denounced the
threats of disunion made in
Congress, as "an avowel of con
templated treason," which it was
the duty of the people to rebuke
and forever silence. It asserted
that the normal condition of all
the territory of the United States
is that of freedom, that the re
opening of the slave trade was a
crime against humanity; that du
ties should be adjusted so as to
encourage the development of
the industrial interests of the
whole country; that Congress
should pass a complete and satis
factory homestead law; that the
right of citizenship enjoyed by
foreighers should not be
abridged or impaired; that the
right of all citizens, native or
naturalized, should be protected
abroad and at home.
When Lincoln was elected, the
Slave States considered them
selves defeated, and on Decem
ber 20, 1860, South Carolina de
clared that the Union was dis
solved, and a secession resolution
was passed. Mississippi, Flor
ida, Alabama, Georgia, Lousiana
and Texas formally seceded from
the Union. These States formed
themselves into a Southern Con
federation, February 4, 1861,
with Jefferson Davis as Pres
ident, and were subsequently
history of the United States.
The inauguration of Lincoln took
place on March 4, just one month
after the inauguration of Jeffer
son Davis, President of the
Southern Confederacy, and 13
days later hostilities had actually
begun.

The events of the Civil war
duringthe next four years in
Lincoln's .career belong to the
war to, its conclusion on the orig
inal issue led to the re-election of
the "Great Emancipator," as
president in 1864.
The decisive victory of Grant
over Lee on April 2, 1865, speed
ily followed by the surrender of
the latter, had just afforded the
prospect of an immediate termi
nation of this long struggle, when
on the 14th of the same month,
President Lincoln was assasinat
ed by a man by the name of John
Wilkes Booth, who uttered the
words "sic semper tyranus" as
he fired the fatal shot which took
effect in the back of the Presi
dent's head. He struggled against
death for several hours and ex
pired the next day, April 15th.
In the affection of the American
people Lincoln holds a place sec
ond only to Washington.
During the afternoon preced
ing his assassination the Presi
dent signed a pardon for a sol
dier sentenced to be shot for de
sertion, remarking as he did so,
"Well, I think the boy can do
more good above ground than
under ground."
He also approved an applica
tion for the discharge, on taking
the oath of allegiance, of a rebel
prisoner, in whose petition he
wrote, "Let it be done." This
act of mercy was his last official
act,
Mr. Lincoln often remarked to
a friend that his religion was
like that of an old man named
Glenn, in Indiana, whom he heard
speak at church meeting, and
who said: "When I do good. I
feel good; when I do bad, I feel
bad; and that's my religion."
Mrs. Lincoln herself has said
that Mr. Lincoln had no faith,
no faith, in the usual acceptance
of those words. 'He never joined
a church; but still, as I believe,
he was a religious man by nature.
He first seemed to think about
the subject when our boy Willie
died, and then more than ever
about the time he went to Gettys
burg; but it was a kind of poet
ry in his nature, and he never
was a techinal Christian.
When a member of Congress,
Lincoln went to Lexington, Ky.,
to hear Henry Clay speak. The
Westerner, a Kentuckian, by
birth, and destined to reach the
goal Clay had so often sought,
wanted to meet the"Millboy of

a tame aftair as was the person
al greeting when Lincoln made1
himself known. Clay was conrte
ous but cold. He may never,
have heard of the man, then in
his presence, who was to secure,
without solicitation, the prize!
which he for many years had un-'
successfully sought. Lincoln was
disenchanted; his ideal was shat- (
tered. One reaaon why Clay'
had not realized his ambition had
become apparent. j
Clay was cool and dignified; (
Lincoln was cordial and hearty.
Clay's hand was bloodless and
frosty, with no vigorous grip in
it; Lincoln wa warm, and its
clasp was expressive of kindli
ness and sympathy.

anecdotes and yarns,
