JOHN A. JOHNSON
The death of Ceovcrnor John A. Johnson of Minnesota
■amoves from our national political life .1 man unique In his
rise from obscurity ami it.' hi In* conduct in the .law .'I Ins
glory, American history recites the financial and political
■access ..I mam men who began life under circumstances as
trying .is th*.-i- which surrounded Governor Johnson, but few
In the zenith of their fame have held tin- hearts of the Amer
ican public .i- be.
Governor Johnson more closely approached the American
Ideal as typified by Abraham Lincoln, the simple, clean-hearted,
big-minded man, Happier times and lesser events did not
call on Governor Johnson to display that marvelous human
genius which has indelibly graven on time the name of Lin
coin, but in his smaller sphere, just verging on .1 greater one,
Governor Johnson showed what manner of man he was.
That "Johnny" Johnson, son of a village set, would have
been president of the United States, had not death intervened.
Is firmly set in the minis of many persons, mat unskilled in
■reneging political events. Unquestionably, in the last cam
paign he was tin- strongest man in the democratic party, with
the possible exception of Br) in, and there is question whether
Johnson could not have achieved the nomination had he as
sumed the part of the aggressor.
Mile was governor of the -Lite of Minnesota, .ml. as lie
phrased it, "employed by the people of bis -tan-." -.> he did
not feel justified in taking the people*! that to help bis polit
leal ambitions. Ami it may have been that his political as
tuteness—for. Johnson was a keen political reasoncr—told
him to bide his time. But be that as it may, there is little
doubt that three years hence he would have been tti choice
of the democratic party, and with the turn republican events
have recently taken, the possibilities for democratic victory
would have, been exceptionally great.
Johnson a democrat and Roosevelt a republican, making
wan, i- for personal characteristics and modes of expres
•ion, were , closely allied in thought and sentiment, and as
each more nearly representative of the feeling of the brand
unpolitical democracy of the lain, than any other political
leaders. '! day the people are sighing for the days of Roose
velt, and Johnson would have been the man to restore them.
But death takes no heed of the plans of man or men, and
Governor Johnson, with .-life's highest honor almost within
reach, has lain down and died died as he lived, bravely and
with good cheer.
Wall st. may not tremble, but the United States has suf
fered its greatest loss for many a day hack.
