K& f
There are two great epochs In the I
history of the American Republic, i
One la the natlon-hnlldiiig epoch and '
the other Is lite natlon-prcrrvtus i
fejh , ?poch. Tne firat had Its scene of ac- <
ifcf/ir . tlon in the midst of the thirteen Colonies
on the 'Atlantic sea-board and Us <
-eentrnl Hgore was George Washington. '
The second epoch had lis prlneipot i
stage Of conflict In Uio Mississippi '
IValley and Its hero was. Abraham Lin- 1
'? ' coin. I
Wo recall the history of the early I
pi settlements of .lata-stown and Ply- I
mouth Rock. We seo the growtn of 1
thirteen colonies peopled by the 'liber- 1
tty-lovlng -Anglo-Saxons. Wo stand l
with the throngs In the old town i
meetings on the commons of Bos- <
ton and hair tho thunder-bolts hurled
%%$; toy Samuel Adorns nt the tyranny of i
the British. We again hear the match- i
; less eloquence of Patrjck Henry In the '
-{halls Of the Virginia assembly, and the ,
continental congress. Llko mountain
. . peaks loom tip the figures ot Washington
and Franklin. Wo watch In
-the morning twilight tor the coming
ot British regulars along the streets
in the unlet villages ot Lexington and
|p?j|pi -Concord. Wo stand amid tho glories
of Bunker Hill and vralt with Washington
and his barefooted soldies In
dho snow at Valley Forge, and applaud
lis victory at fronton. We witness
"' Bnrgoy.ne's surrender at Saratoga and
Corawallls' at Yorktown. We stand
In the city ot Philadelphia and hear
tho old liberty bell peal out the birth
of liberty upon a new continent; and
ap[A? hear tho plaudits ot the world at the
Immortal words of the Declaration ot
Independence, as penned by the lib
erty-lovlng Jefferson. Wo see a new
nation horn, dedicated to freedom and
constitutional government; created by
a people whose forefathers, upon the
plains at Rimnymede, had wrested
from King John the Magna Oharta.
. the bulwark of Anglo-Saxon liberty;
a nation that whs to exemplify to all
history tho truth that all governments
derive their just powers from the consent
of tho governed.
VIM11 .... ... I
Nations are not made, they grow.
In the beginning ot this republic our J,
' forefathers left two great questions
for future generations to solve. Ideas (
are things, and It was a contest upon
these two great ideas that moulded (
the bullets that were fired In the civil
,hj.' mar. As the teachings ot Voltaire an I (
Rousseau culmlrjted In tho French
Revolution, so the discussion of these
two great questions ended only at
Appoinnttos.
Hri ' The first found an early expression
In the Kentucky and Virginia resolutions
ot 179S and 1799, Inspired by Jefferson.
They formulated the contention
thnt tho right of the State was
above the right of the Federation.
jeuereon, me ilherty-lovlng Jefferson,
who had Just como from the shadows
of montirchy, know no central Initios
except the centralization of personal j
government He AM not fully under- ,
stand that In a representative govern- ,
ment the greatest danger Is not In .
centralization, hut In disintegration, ,
Ho had not came to reallzo toat the ,
greatest tyranny Is the tyranny of the ,
i chief of a petty tribe, and that In em- ,
plre there Is liberty. That In n great (
representative government where nil
pewor comes from the people, there .
ts no danger of centralization. Cal- (
houn, as the disciple ot Jefferson, car- |
Tied this Idea to Its logical concluston ,
and advoeatod the right of nulllflca- ,

ion and secession, and closely conlected
this auestlnn with the'otnsr
treat question ot human slavery. This
contest brought Into action the trans endent
eloquence of Daniel Webster,
rhoso defense of the supremacy of
ntr federal government will always
je a part of our national history. It
'ound Its most diramatic Incident when
tndrcw Jaeltson faced South Carolina
n Its .nullification and, with upllftel
rand, swore by the Eternal that the
Ight of toe Federation was above the
Ight of any State. And thus comnenccd
the contest that ended only In
ilvll war.
Here upon the -prarles of Illinois
store than seventy years ago aprwSitred
the plnud Of the impend
ing stojm. The death of Lovejoy at
\|ton battling for the liberty of speech
ind for human freedom. Inspired the
jratory of Wendell Phillips upon the
xnnmons of Boston, wnose words
rang out in favor of liberty like the
mil to battle. His death lent strength
:o the noble Garrison in Massachusetts.
It was with John Brown when
he died at 'Harper's Ferry. It inspired
the pen of Horace Greeley,
ivhose words lighted the fires that ;\inlly
m<?Ited away forever the chains
)f slavery.
In the mrfdst of this 3torm came the
glossal figure of Abraham Lincoln,
'the grandest man who has come to
is on the tide of time." His origin
vas as humble as that of the lowly
tfazarene who bore his cross on the
'nr^ifT ahnros nf A*S jl flnli.
:ary mountain peak towers above the
ilnlns. so gtooil Lincoln above big environments.
The centuries will ask of
llm ?s they have asked of Shakesleare.
from whence came his ,greatio?s,
and out of the Eternal will
:omc the answer that God gave It.
The first real Americans wet*.

Irom Virginia and the Oarollnns
nto Kentucky and Tennessee and
hence Into Illinois, made the _bnci::round
Tor the figure of Lincoln ami
hoy were the men In whoso midst
vas fought out ihe second great Araiercan
conflict.
The ."tars shine upon no greater
leople than those who live here In
he valley of the Mississippi river,
[reater than the Tigris or Euphrates;
[renter than the Nile, that flowed by
lie homes of the ptolinles and Pha nohs,
end upon whose banks sit
rrand, gloomy and peculiar, the evera8tlng
pyramids; greater than the
[fiber of ancient home, from whoso
milks tne Imperial Caesars ruled the
vorld; greater than the Rhine, in
vhoso valley contended the Teuton
rnd th? Until fn,? the Ronremoev of
Hurope and the world; greater than
ill these because It flows by the home
if freemen. And Illinois stretching
rain the Great Lukes on the north,
o the very heart of the Southland, berime
the keystone of tills great valey
and here lived and wrought Abralam
Lincoln.
'No; without thy wondrous story,
Illinois, Illinois,

The friends of Ihe bill got but one
ie setback. They were willing to amend f
'J the bill to suit the objections of Sen- |
s(" ator Blue, who called attention to the
" fact that while a dry vote in the en"
tire county would not nlfect a munlcl
,0 pallty that voted wet, or had an cx"*
cltjalve license granting charter, If the Sl
country districts voted dry the vote
on the entire county would be wet ben
cause of the size of the wet majorities
0| in the city. Then licenses could bo
' granted In the country districts despite
tlie fact they voted dry. Senator J*
,n Craig was milling to concede the (
point and offered an amendment to m
that effect, but some of the opposition,
smarting under the hurts of the steam vl
roller, refused the unanimous consent
that was necessary to carry an amend- c<

J ments, Inasmuch as In Its present n
