Hodgevllle. Ky Feb. 12. Never
since Appomatox have the blue and
gray been drawn doner together than
they were today when Roosevelt,
standing on the spot that a hundred
years ago Rave the world one of Its
greatest men. today delivered the
most reiiiarkublp address of his car

The enthusiastic crowd represent
ed every phase of America's greatest
struggle. Former slaves together
with men once slave holders, gather
ed to pay tribute to Lincoln's mem
ory. The words of no other speaker
were more sincere or more eloquent
than those of Wright.
A canvas covering had been ar
ranged about the marble memorial
and enclosing the fog cabin where
Nancy Hanks brought the child of
destiny Into the world.
Then ver3 . rommodutlons for six

General Rodger Williams of Loxlng

In charge of the arrangements.
The presidential party was escort

Insignificant compared with today's.

Roosevelt's Speech.
Roosevelt's remarkable address In
full follows;
We have nu t here to celebrate the
hundredth anniversary of the birth of
one of the two greatest Americans; of
one of (he two or three greatest men
of the nineteenth century; of one of
the greatest men ill the world's his
tory. This rail splitter, this boy
who passed his ungainly youth 111 the
dire poverty of the poorest of the
frontier folk, whose rise was by
weary and painful labor, lived to lead
his people through the burning flames
of a Ktruggle from which the nation
emerged, purified as by fire, born
anew to a loftier life. After long years
of iron effort, and of failure that came
more often than victory, ho at last
rose to the leadership of the re
publc, at the moment when that
leadership had become the stu
pendous world-task of the time.
He grew to know greatness,
but never ea.se. Sucuetu came to him,
bill never happiness, save that which
springs from doing well a painful and
a vital task. Power furrows deep
ened on his brow, but bis eyes were
undlmmed by either hate or fear.
HIM gaunt shoulders were bowed, but
his nice! (hews never faltered as he
In. re for a burden the destinies of
bis people. Mis great and tender
heart shraug from plvlng pa'n; and
the task allotted him was to pour out
like water the life-blood of the young
men, and to feel In his every fiber the
sorrow of the women. Disaster sad
dened but never dismayed him. As
the red years of war went by they
found him ever doing his duty In the
present, ever facing the future with
fearless front, high of heart, and
dauntless of soul. Unbroken by
hatred, unshaken by scorn, he work
ed and suffered for the people
Triumph was his at the last; and
barely had he tasted It before mur
der found him. and the kindly, pat
lent, fearless eyes were closed for
Washington anil Llncolit.
As a people we are Indeed beyond
measure fortunate in the characters
of the two greatest of our public men
Washington and Lincoln. Widely
though tbey differed In externals, the
Virginia landed gentleman and the
Kentucky barkwoodsmar, they were
alike In essentials, they were alike In
the great qualities which rendered
each able to render service to his na
tion and to an mankind such as no
other man of "his generation could or
did render. Each had lofty Ideals,
nut enen in striving to attain these
lofty Ideals was guided by the found
est common sense. Each possessed
inflexible courage in adversity, and a
soul wholly unspoiled by prosperity.
Each possessed all the gentler vir
tues commonly exhibited by good men
who lack rugged strength of cnarac
tcr. Each possessed also all the
strong qualities commonly exhibited
by those towering masters of mankind
who have too often shown themselves
d void of o much as the under.-tand-Ing
of the words by which we signify
the qualities of duty, of mercy, of de-
the right, of lofty disint.

Xo Two (ireat Men, A (;r.ol.
There have been other ni"ii a great
mill other men as good; bpt In all the
history of mankind there nre no other
two great men as good as these, no
other two good men as great. Widely
though the problems of to-. lav differ
from the problems set for solution to
Washington when he founded this na
tion, to Lincoln when he saved It and
iiee( ine slave, yet the qualities they
showed In meet'ng Ihese problems are
exactly the same as those we should
show in doing our work to-day.
Lincoln saw Into the future with the
prophetic Imagination usually vouch
safed only to the poet and the seer.
He had in him all the lift toward
greatness of the visionary. without
any of (he visionary's fanaticism or
egotism, without any of the visionary's
narrow Jealmioy of the practical man
and inability to strive In practical
fashion for the realization of an ideal.
He had the practical man's hard
common sense and willingness to
adapt means to ends; but there was In
him none of tjiat morbid growth of
mind mid soul which blinds so many
practical men to the higher tilings
of life. No more practical man ever
lived than this homely backwoods
Idealist; but he had nothing in com
mon with those practical men whose
consciences are warped until they fail
noxious, t
community, if
and coiitrolb.'d
muial sense.
An i:aoqilc To I'ullo.v.
V.'e of this day mu:'t try to solve
many social and Imlustriul problems,
(requiring to an especial de;;ree the
combination of Indomitable resolu
tion with cool-headed nanity. We can
profit by the way In which Lincoln
us"d both these traits a.-; he strove for
reform. We can learn much Vif value
from the very attacks which follow
ing that course brought upon his head
attacks alike by the extremists of
revolution and by the extremists of
reaction. He never wavered In devo
tion to his principals, in his love for
the I'nion. and in his abhorence of
slavery. Timid and lukewarm peo
ple were always denouncing hl.n be
cause he was too extreme; but as a
matter of fact he never went to ex
tremes, he worked step by step; and
because of this the extremints hated
and denounced him with a fervor
which now seems to us fantastic In its
deification of the unreal and t.ie Im
possible. Not Without Oil it.
At the very time when one side
was holding him up as the apostle of
social revolution because he was
against slavery, the leading aboli
tionist denounced him as the "slave
hound of Illinois." When he wa
the second time candidate for Presi
dent, the majority of his opponents
attacked him because of what they
termed his extreme .radicalism, while
a minority threatened to bolt his
nomination because he wac not radi
cal enough. He had continually to
check those who wished to go forward
too fast, at the very time that he
overrode the opposition of those who
wished not to go forward at all. The
goal was never dim before his vision:
but he picked his way . cautiously,
wfthout either halt or hurry, as he
strode toward It, through such a mor
ass of difficulty that no man of less
courage would have attempted It
