Some years ngo when Mark
Hanna died Tho Chronicle made
ttho lesson of his life tho subject
of editorial discussion pointing
out how thoso who know him best
had proved that ho whom men
Called n conscienceless scheming
unscrupulous politician was a
ifcindlyj generous man with many
splendid qualities as a citizen It
took death to reveal tho real
Mark Han na or rather when
passion and prejudice were still
> ed in tho presence of death men
fpr tho first time saw him as ho
vas and spoko of him in mo
atnents of calmness with the words
of fairness and truth
Much of what was said of
Mark Hanna might well bo said
with referonco to Grover Cleve
land albeit tho two men were in
their leading characteristics and
atiethods of thought and ideas of
was a big man as in his field and
irango of action lower as it was
Mark Hanna was also a big
onan Grover Cloveland in his rise to
eminence becamo very near be
ing a phenomenon Not oven the
careers of Lincoln and Grant
iwere more remarkable
General Grant had received
rtlie benefit of military training
vrhilo Lincoln had been a member
tof congress and gained a nation
al fame by his debates with
Douglass but Grover Cleveland
xoso from almost absolute os
scurity like a rocket to the most
exalted office on earth He had
mo war record because ho was
teaching school during tho war
Jind twentyfivo years ago awar
arccord meant much Yet urw
known boyond tho mayors chair
to the presidency of the earths
greatest republic There is no
parallel for rise to fame and for
tune in all tho annals of history
and it was a commentary upon
then existing political conditions
and public sentiment to say
though it is true that Grover
Cleveland won because ho was
honest and woltld not share in or
permit boodling or grafting in
municipal government which
was so common then as to bo
looked upon as a matter of
Ho was tho most stalwart of
Democrats and ho was honest
jet no president for half a cen
tury has been more cursed and
denounced Why Simply be
cause ho held to his convictions
and never sought or even desired
Ho did not believe all the of
fices of tho government should be
lield at tho behest of political
loaders and spoilsmen and ho said
so and a system of civil service
based on merit which had been
a theory becamo a reality and
politicians became his enemies
Ho did not believe in free sil
ver at any ratio and ho said so
and when ho said anvthing no in
tcrpreter was needed to tell what
ho meant
Ho did not believe in a tariff
for protection but only for rov
enue with protection but an un
avoidable iricident and believ
ing tho people were being robbed
to enrich manufacturers ho
sounded a call to battle against
tho tariff and did so though his
own partisans cursed and abused
him as a fool if not a traitor
and hd in turn denounced tfioir
action in passing a compromise
bill as political perfidy
To save tho national credit he
sold bonds and was charged with
profiting personally to a largij
extent by tho deal an absolute
ly baseless charge but such a
charge was in lino with many
equally as unjustifiable
However nothing daunted him
He followed his convictions and
in 1892 won tho presidency again
without recantation or apology
Tho vocabulary of denuncia
tion was poured upon him while
he lived tho lexicography of
jpublic duty as far asunder as tho praise has been exhausted to pay
Grover Cloveland in his sphere tribute since ho died
How foolish
how unjust how
unjustifiable was the abuse heap
ed upon him when tho passions of
men ran high I
A little calm reflection would
have shown that tho charges were
not true and that tho American
people novcr elected a dishonest
man or party traitor president

Though clothes are much finer
And your grub is more rare
Your prospects aro brighter
And plans appear fair
Remember tho words that are
true to a loter
Brag is a good dog but Hold
fast is Detter
Dont let a long tongue
Your own praises bojist
Nor sound your loud trumpet
Lest your honor bo lost
Eemember tho words that are
true to a letter
Brag is a good dog but Hold
fast is better
Though tho path may sown
There is hidden a snag
That will flip up tho heels
Of a chap that will brag
Eemember tho words that are
truo to a letter
Brag was a good dog but Hold
fast is better
But rather help wretches
To climb to your side
Then theyll sing your praises
Around far and wide
And over remember this lino to
a letter
Brag is a good dog but Hold
fast is better
On the Altar of Charity
Selfishness bltrn
To povertys childien
Your back never turn
You may bo ashamed of their
colorless rags
They aro equal I think to the
person who brags
Tho great power of mind
Possessed of good sense
