at after recounting Stevens' prominent
connection with the recent impeachment ]
ie project and his views relative to the 1
by paynlent of five-tewenty bonds, con
re cludes: "The death of Thad. Stevens is I
ft not now a public loss. His impeach- r
me ment policy was of incalculable injury n
to his political party, and the financial v
p. dishonesty which he encouraged. dies 9
y with him. He was fanatical, bitter and a
re self-willed, but not mean or deceitful. r
)r He is the last of the leading Americans 0
who had the courage to rise above par. a
g tisanship." The Morning Telegraph a
:e has the following : "Stevens was neitha- c
)f er good, wise nor generous, but in his ii
r- time did signal service, and with all his ii
faults, he merits the famous phrhase, l
r 'that was a mAn.'" The Daily News s

have heard simply in a gossiping way, I
