The Origin of the Phrase in Dispute and Its Antiquity Traced. The editor of Hm pel's Week!) is in 11 peck of trouble, and all be cause lie Bndertook tu locate the origlOBtor of the phrase "A public 0000 is 11 public trust. ' ' Harper's Identified ibe name uf the late Daniel 8. Latmont with the phrase under discussion, but beiug called lo acoount by one ot iis readers, suid : "We did not say thai Colonel I, annuit was the ftOthor of the phraee "Public offloe is a public trust "- only tlmt lie adapted it tu fitting use in a Cleveland cam paign, The originator, ire believe, was the late Qovernor Ilunb s. Thompaon, of South Carolina, arho Aral employed the expression in liis inaugural eddreia in issj." A St. Paul, Minn., reader of lini pel's, replying to this lateal editorial declaration, snys: "Daniel Webster, in a speech III the (Moon, Huston, seventy yean ago, igid : "It is time tu declare ilmt offloea created for the people inc public trusts, out private ipolle," Volume 1. Works ul lianiel Wnbater, p. 886. it maj lie tlmt Hm Qovernor f Suuih Carolina and Colouel Lam ml drew their inspiration from ibe name source. The mail who uudertake tu name 1 he originator of the phrase 'Pub He offloe is a public trust." bus as turned a large task. In attributing the origin lo Governor Thompaon, ui South Carolina, Harper'a Week ly does mil touch the mark. Oov 1 rdoi Thompaon need it in ish, perhaps jus! us Abram 8. Bewitl did in Isk.'I or Daniel S. Lamonl in 1SS4, us a phrase whiofa bad lie come su general as to justify its use without quotation murks. Dorman B. Baton, a New York lawyer, who became widely known bj his advocacy of civil service re form, siiul in 1881: "Tbe public officea are a public trust. " But as long- ago as May, IH7J, Charles Snmuereaidi 'The phrase 'public Office is a public trust' bus uf late in collie common property. " The St. Paul render nf Harpers' correct ly taj 1 1 bat Daniel Webatei declared, "it is tune lo declare that offices created for the people ut' public trusts, not private spoils." .Mr. Webster delivered that speech October 12, 1886 Hut un Febru ary 13, 1836, John U Calhoun said: "The very essence of a free government constats in considering offices as public trust bestowed tor the good uf the country, and nut for the benefit of an Individual urn party." So the phrase cer tainly did not originate with Web ster. Neither did it originate with Calhoun, because years before Burke, tu his address mi the French Revolution, said: "To execute laws is a royal offloe; tu execute orders is not to be a king. How ever, a political executive magis tracy, though merely such, is a great trust." In the same address Bnrke taid: "All persons possess ing any purl inn of power might to be strongly and awfully impreaead with an idea that they act in trust, and that they are to account for their conduct tn that trust tu the une great Master, Authur ami Founder of society.." In the same 111 dress ntirue sum: lu tlicir nomination to uflico they will not point to the exercise of authority is tn a pitiful job, but as tu a huh function." Thomas Jefferson In 1807 said: When 11 man assumes it. public trust be should consider himself as public property.'1 Hut umniig t lit claims with re spect to the origin of tins phrase, those of Matthew Henry arc not to be entirely ignored. Matthew Henry was a Hritish divine, who died in 1714. He published a com mentary upon the old and new Testaments. In the third chapter uf the first hpistle to Timothy, re ferring to tbe iiialiflcations of deacons, as well as of bishops, it is wild, and let these, also, Qrst b proved." Commenting on this Matthew Henry said: "It is not fit that the public trusts should be lodged in the hand of any, till they hnve been first proved and found lit for the business they are to be in trusted with." Clearly, tbe phrase did not origi nate as Harper s Weekly says it did, with the governor of Smith iiroliua, nnr as the St Haul render says, with Webster. Of course, the exact origin is not of the greatest importance, but it is a good sign that public interest bus been aroused in tihruscs of this sort; and whether it comes in tin words of Matthew Henry, of JefTer son, uf Hurkc, of L'nlhoun, of Webster or men of more recent days it is particularly important at this time Hint elector and elected understood that, as Disraeli put it, All power is a trust, und we are accountable for its exercise."
