The new company which has been or ganized for the purpose of providing rapid transit between St. Paul and Min neapolis comes before council, in its re quest for a franchise, with the objec tionable point in its prospectus, which operated against the granting ot a fran chise to another company eight months ago. eliminated. It frankly states upon hat streets it desires to run, having presumably discerned the feeling of the property owners along those streets, and asks permission to build its lines accordingly. At the same' time, the other company asks for a conference with the committee appointed months ago to confer with it regarding the ar rangement of an ordinance satisfactory both to the company and the council. The requests of both companies there fore come definitely before the council for speedy and conclusive action. Each has equal rights. Each is composed of eminent men, whose names are a suf ficient guarantee that privileges grant ed will not be abused, and that prom ises made will be fulfilled. The gen eral public or the council have no dis position to or interest in choosing Be tween them; It would therefore ap pear that, the rights of the public being duly regarded in each instance, the best solution of the matter would be iv the granting of a franchise to both. There is business enough for two such roads between the two cities and in their streets to render each road a profitable undertaking, while the com petition which would necesssarily ensue Would be the best possible guarantee that the public would have the best pos sible service at the least possible price. The crying need of both St. -Paul; and Minneapolis is more effective means of asportation to the suburbs and the midway. districts.

INDORSING HUSK. - The Wisconsin Republicans have done credit neither to themselves nor to their state in indorsing Gov. Risk for presi dent and in deciding to present his name to the Republican national con vention. Of course' the Wisconsin Re publicans know that Gov. Jerky has no more chance of becoming the nominee than has Col. Peter Donan, and they ' recognize fully the fact that their vote will be purely a complimentary one. But can they afford to identify them selves with and enthusiastically indorse a man who, as governor, has . been false to his sworn duty? '-*&■; % It is a very curious process of reason ing by which they arrive at an affirma tive answer to the question, in all rou tine matters pertaining to the governor ship Rusk has performed his duties or dinarily well It is in matters beyond the "usual demands of red tape that he has been found wanting. It has been shown to him, for instance, with the utmost conclusiveness, that, despite the denials and supine in activity of officials, the disgraceful stockade dens of the northern part of the state still exist. Though strictly within his province to take action in the premises, he went off pleasuring and conveniently forgot all about the mat ter. In indorsing Rusk, therefore, the Wisconsin Republicans indorse his dereliction. It is a pretty poor platform upon which to stand a presidential candidate; but, so far as the serious consideration of Rusk's name is concerned, it doesn't make the slightest difference what kind of a platform he stands upon. No one is better acquainted with this fact than the Wisconsin Republicans themselves. PROTESTS THAT FAIL-ED. Some time ago it was announced with a great flourish of trumpets that a grand mass meeting of workingmen would be held in New York to protest against the passage of the Mills bill. The meet ing has been held. There are over 100,000 workingmen in New York, and the city is the very center of the mo nopolistic and high tariff idea, but the grand mass convention succeeded in corralling just 200 members. These, assuming to speak for the 100,000 work ingmen who were not present, entered a formal protest against the Mills bill for the stereotyped and frequently ex plained reason that its passage would result in the cutting down of wages. The fact that so few of the working men should have assembled, and most of these presumably at the dictation of monopolistic employers, is proof suf ficient that the great majority of the New York workingmen are too intelli gent to be deceived by the specious arguments which the opponents of the Mills bill bring forward. Many of these toilers, agreeing with the West, find fault with the bill only because it does not go far enough. There is still too much discrimination, too much favoring of one locality at the expense of another, in it to suit their ideas of fairness. If they protested against it at all it would be upon these grounds. But in common with the rest of the country not hampered with monopolistic control, they regard it as a step in the right direction, as removing a portion of the burdens they have borne in order that others might be enriched. It is not likely that they would be so blind to their own interests as to protest against a measure which offers them much needed relief. That fact is a sufficient explanation of the meager attendance at the widely advertised protest meeting, and that fact also explains why the meeting was such an utter and deserved failure. People endowed with common sense are uot in the habit of protesting against methods devised to check robbery pure and simple. __»_ SUGAR OR TOBACCO. Some of the learned gentlemen now discussing the Mills bill in congress are quite content that an agreement should be reached keeping the tax on sugar and taking it off tobacco. They profess that their desire for this arrangement is solely in interest of the workingmen. But is it? We ' think not. Let the workingman himself decide, and there is not much question what his answer would be. He has already given it pretty often through his accredited rep resentatives, but to their declarations these officious so-called friends have curiously enough turned a deaf ear. The workingman, these gentry should know, reasons about in this way: The ' average consumption of sugar per an- i num for each person is fifty pounds. | With his family of say six, his propor- j tion of the consumption would be 300 j pounds. But he is the only member of i the family who uses tobacco. Perhaps he will use as much as a pound a week, or 52 pounds a year. Is it then more advantageous to him to have a few cents a pound taken off his tobacco than it is to have the same amount deducted from the cost of his sugar? There is but one answer to the ques tion; and the monopolists, who seek to increase their own profits in the hypo critical guise of furthering the working men's interests, know it as well as do the workingmen who have been de manding the passage of the Mills bill. -^»» To the North Pole on Snowshocs. Court Journal. A Norwegian athlete is about to make the foolish attempt to cross Greenland on snow shoes, and, if possible, to reach the north pole. He has a few enthusi astic picked athletes to indorse his pro ject, and he may make a start across the dreary wastes that end no oneJcnows where; but he is not likely to make his journey. a success. Besides, what is there to achieve by any discoveries he could possibly make? There are no mysteries of human life to clear up, such as the fate of the Franklin expedi tion, and the practical gain to mankind, even if the North pole were reached, is nil. There is enough of desolation in warmer latitudes. .tj*. Indorse Donnelly for Governor. Special to the Globe.

Dubuque, 10., May 9.— A steady in crease in the stage of water goes on with heavy losses to all industries bor dering on the river. All the saw mills and lumber yards are flooded. The loss in wages to employes amounts to $1,000 per week. The outer levee ware houses are surrounded with water, and reached only with boats. The river is from one to three miles wide, and covers all the bottom lands and islands, and is a rag ing torrent. But twelve inches more is wanted to reach the high water mark of 1880. The rise to-day was seven inches. Record to-night, twenty-one feet eight inches. IS DR. GUERNON SAFE? Col. Farrington After His Official Position. THE FRENCH AROUSED. Kelly and Boran Wot Pulling Together in This Row Over the Spoils. Not to be behind their Republican brethren, the Minnesota Democrats have hatched a row that involves a number of prominent politicians and the fate of two federal officeholders. This rumpus has arisen over the bill passed by con gress this session, makflig the location of the collector of customs at St. Paul instead of St. Vincent, where he now is. The collector of customs for Minnesota is Dr. Guernou, located at St. Vincent. The deputy collector of customs is Col. John Farrington, located at St. Paul. When this bill, locating the collector at St. Paul and transferring the deputy to St. Vincent was passed, Secretary.of the Treasury Fairchild was telegraphed to by friends of Dr. Guernon: "Will this bill change the collector of customs?" Mr. Fairchild immediately replied that it would not. Dr. Guernon was well pleased with this. He had been appointed two years ago, and has two years to serve yet, and he enjoyed the prospect of REMOVING TO ST. PAUL. Not so with Deputy Collector Far rington. His residence is in St. Paul, and the new law compels him to either go to St. Vincent or resign. He posted off and hunted up his friends, among them P. H. Kelly. Mr. Kelly two years ago warmly supported Guernon for the eollectorship and Farrington for deputy. He consoled Mr. Farrington. Some plans were made, and this week Con gressman Rice solicited of the president the appointment of Col. Farrington as collector of customs. This act at once aroused the French. Guernon is a Frenchman, and the only one of the na tionality that holds a federal position of value in the state. If Col. Farrington is made collector of customs, Guernon, before the expiration of his official term and without a charge against him. is deposed. He can take the cast-off deputyship or leave the service. It is a novel situation. The telegraph reported yesterday that CONGRESSMAN MACDONALD was backing Col. Farrington, but he wired from Washington that be was not. Congressman Wilson was reported the same way also, but he has stated that it was under a misapprehension that he did so, not knowing that the appointment would unseat a Democrat already holding the position. Yester day afternoon prominent Democrats in St. Paul interested in the matter sent the following telegram to .Secretary of the Treasury Fairchild : "Your letter informing us that there would be no change in the collector of customs received; press dispatches in dicate that a change is contemplated. We protest against any change in the collectorship and request that no action be taken until you have heard from the Democracy of Minnesota." Every French politician in St. Paul seemed to have his war paint on yester day afternoon. :^_%%\ MB. DORAN FAVORS the retention of Dr. Guernon. Mr. Kelly is accused of being at the bottom, of the Farrington movement, but as he is out of the city this could not be con firmed. Col. Farrington is an old per sonal friend of Mr. Kelly and Congress man Rice, and does not like the idea of giving up official life or the alternative of going to St. Vincent. The president has the appointing power, but as Dr. Guernon has not been removed and strong petitions for his retention have been forwarded, it is probable that the matter will be amicably adjusted. Guer non and capable, and Col. Farrrntrton is well known in St. Paul. GUERNON '6 FRIEND'S KICK. Special to the Globe. Washington, May The bill cre ating the collection distiict of Minne sota, with St. Paul as a port of entry, and St. Vincent as a sub-port of entry and delivery, does not seem to be satis factory to the friends of Dr. Guernon, as by it Guernon is legislated out of office. Judge Mac Donald has received vigorous protests against the reported recommendation by the Democratic members from Minnesota, and asking suspension of action uutil Guernon's friends can be heard from. He promptly replied he has not recommended Mr. Farrington, as reported, having de clined to commit himself when requested to do so. >*_-- The Copyright Bill. Washington, May 9.— The copy right bill passed in the senate to-day strikes out of the existing law the words "citizen of the United States or resident therein," and also the words "and authors may reserve the right to dramatize or to translate their own works;" and insert ip lieu of the latter sentence the words "authors or their assigns shall have the exclusive right to dramatize and translate any of their works for which copyright shall have been obtained under the laws of the United States." * «— ; ; - v THE SEA AND THE TIDE.

March, Charles Coruman, E. A. Stevens and A. L. Stewart; and Judge Chandler, of Milwau kee, was also aboard the train. Arriving at South Park, the party dis embarked, and, after climbing the bluff for several hundred feet, they found a peculiarly-shaped car, round at the bot tom, and suspended in mid-air from a trestlework, awaiting inspection. It was not long before Mayor Lawrence, of South St. Paul, who,* by the way, is one of the ruling spirits in the new en terprise, gave the word for the motor to move, and the car, loaded with human freight to its utmost capacity, started up a grade of 10 per cent to the mile, and made the trip the length of the track wilh ease, and with scarcely a jar or vibration. It ran much easier than a horse or cable car does, and there was . NO SIGX OF IHKT and scarcely any noise overhead cre ated by the motor. All who made the trip were highly pleased at the smoothness with which it was accomplished, and voted the elec tric railway a success from the start. To be sure, there were evidences every where that the structure which held the rail was only a temporary one, but it was stated by the promoters of the en terprise that the railway in running order for legitimate traffic showed a moderate-sized iron post, supported by light and properly constructed lateral bracing, holding a light truss span, thus doing away with heavy guard timbers and all cross-ties and sleepers. Each car with its motor or power is suspended on a single track on a single line of truss work, the cars being ele vated fourteen feet, or, if necessary, sixteen feet from the ground, thus al lowing the tallest vehicles to pass un der them without difficulty. An idea of the invention may be gath ered from the fact that in its operation the beholder is strongly reminded of the manner in which cash is transferred, from the counter of a dry gsods or other business house to the cashier's desk in* the small wire baskets, and without any' more noise than that system makes. 6 In the trial made yesterday nothing was attempted on a flat suiface, Out all the work performed was up a grade heavier than that encountered on any' railroad in the United States, not ex-} cepting the Baltimore & Ohio's transit across the Alleghenies, and the sharp est curves imaginable were taken as easily as though they had been a straightaway course. .} As an example of the minimum to which danger of accident on this style i of elevated road has been reduced, just prior to the starting of the car on one of - the trips the rails were separated, and'? as soon as the current of electricity was broken the vehicle came to an iustanta-' neous stop. * No one who witnessed yesterday's ex periments had any doubt as to the feasi bility or practicability of the new in vention. And besides, all the annoy ances of a steam engine, such as flying sparks, cinders, smoke, gases "and ■ greasy droppings into the streets and the heads of pedestrians, are done away with. Motors are placed directly on the shafts of the driving wheels* over the cars, which AIIE RUN SINGLY on a true rail, without swinging motion, bumping or jumping, the trucks run ning on rails placed on insulated timber and absence of a solid road-bed combin ing to produce a silent motion. After all present had been afforded an oppor tunity of riding and experiencing the novelty of the new mode of transporta tion for themselves, the excursionists were invited to partake of a luncheon at the South Park hotel, and an enjoy- * able time was the result. Speeches were made by Messrs. Schef fer, Ames, Assistant Passenger Agent W. H. Dixon, of the Chicago, Milwau kee & St. Paul : Lawrence, Bushnell, Oilman and A. E. Clarke, the burden of which was that the experiment wit nessed had been in every way satisfac tory, and that all needed now to insure greater prosperity to the Twin Cities was the granting of the franchise to build the new road. Ample capital has been pledged to put up the tracks and fully equip the road without a cent of ; expense to any one in either of the Twin Cities, the projectors craving only the privilege of going to work. The material to be used in the con struction of the trusses and track will be the finest quality of iron and Besse mer steel, the latter being the greatest factor in the new scheme, thus insuring durability and substantiality.

Whether Dr. Munhall saw a game of base ball on Sunday, or not, he took the liberty of denouncing the play ers of the national game on the Sab bath in the strongest terms at the meeting in the market hall last even ing. Standing room only and very little of that was to be had by late-comers. The exercises of the evening were pre ceded by a. service of song, which in cluded a solo by Prof. Towner. Dr. Munhall closed his remarks on Isaiah xxxiii., 14--30. His remarks were substantially as follows: . '•Many persons in tnis hall consider God a mere sentimental being. Men ' and women here to-night have made and are makiug a covenant with hell. They try to persuade themselves that there is no judgment. They are shelter ing themselves behind that which God i calls a refuge of lies. It is the part of wisdom that we fall in with God's plans. It is said that there are hypo- . crites in the church. That miserable j excuse is used by hundreds who know the truth. It is proof pos itive that there are Christians in the church ii" you find hypocrites there also. Even after you have done the best you oould you will have no dif ficulty in finding people who have no confidence in you. You, who say that you will not become Christians now, because there is too much excitement in this revival, and yon want to act delib erately, have been offering the --". SAME SHALLOW EXCUSE for years, and are on the road to hell, You will never be saved unless you get excited, and very soon," too. Three fourths of the people who are to-day consistent Christians and the mainstays ot the church were converted at revival meetings. A man may get excited over anything ! but religion, and he is considered to be all right. " Next fall some of you people will get so excited over politics that you will march through the mud carrying a torch and acting the fool generally. If ; your candidate is elected you will shout ; yourselves hoarse and in other ways act like lunatics. You get so excited over real estate that you don't know what yon are doing, and I'll venture the as sertion that if the fire bell should ring at this moment and some one explained that : a -.'woodshed was being burned, forty people who never owned j a shed wouht get up and skedaddle out 'of -> this 1 place. You also ; get £ excited over base ball. ; In my judgment the base ball you have in St. Paul is of the devil. 1 Tonce played snort stop myself, but I would not patronize a club that plays on Sunday. Nether : can a club that plays on Sunday V- get my, : money on Monday. You will continue to resist Christ until it is too late. Heed now and be saved." At the conclusion of Dr. Munhall's remarks about fifty people went into th. inquiry room. "'.'.'"* Have your " wau -"' ad in Sunday's Globe, ure where everybody looks. f ; f j- !

Chicago, May President Holmes, of the Chicago City Street Railway com pany, who is widely known as a mem ber ot the Young Men's Christian assoociation, and superintendent of probably the largest Sunday school in the United States, became so utterly dazed while on the witness stand in court this afternoon that he fainted away, and had to be carried out un conscious, while the trial was imme diately adjourned. He was testifying on behalf of one of his agents who was accused of having repeatedly bribed juries in damage suits against Holmes' street railway line. Tiie lawyer for the prosecution, Hiram Parkhurst, was subjecting Mr. Holmes to a savage cross examination and had grown somewhat personal in the matter when the start ling incident occurred. Sumner C. Welch is the name of the alleged jury fixer. He is the company's claim agent, and, according to Mr. Holmes' testi mony, had, some years ago, been a num ber of thousand dollars short in his ac counts. This shortage he was making up by his services as claim agent. The examination failed to show that Mr. Holmes was cognizant of any crooked ness by Welch in settling- the company's suit. What it did show was that Welch had been allowed to expend hundreds of dollars at a time, and the only voucher the company required of Welch was a verbal statement to Mr. Holmes. Lawyer Parkhurst asked Mr. Holmes if a cer tain voucher for $150, expended in one suit, would not be a proper statement if the money had been paid to secure the disagreement of the jury. Mr. Holmes became very excited and angry at the question, but finally answered, "Yes, perhaps so." The examination was proceeding sharply, when Mr. Holmes asked for water, then for a moment's pause. Instantly he reeled and fell as if dead. The court was instantly in confusion and was adjourned by tin judge. Mr. Holmes was revived, and to-night he is said to be out of danger. ■*_- —*.-."•■ GREEK CATHOLICS. A Church to Be Built by Them in Chicago. '. Chicago, May 9.— The Greek Catho lics of this city are about to get a church of their own. It will be the third Greek Catholic church in the United States, there being one in San Francisco and another in - New Orleans. Some time ago the Servians, Greeks, Bulgarians and Russians, who have made Chicago their home, sent a petition to the Rus sian minister in Washington requesting him to induce tiie Russian government to contribute to the building of a Greek Catholic church in Chicago and to send a priest. Yesterday a prominent Ser vian received a letter from the Greek Catholic bishop in San Francisco.

BEEM'S WILL. A Very Qucerly Constructed Doc ument. . Chicago, May it.— lt is asserted to night that the will of Martin Beem, whose mysterious death has caused so much comment, contains a note com manding that if anything should hap pen to him an investigation should be made. The will was drawn up less than a week before his death. The pro bate clerk refuses to allow the docu ment to lie inspected at present. A peculiar feature of the tragedy is the fact that if it is shown that Gen. Beem was murdered, his life insurance can be collected by his sister in Alton, to whom it is payable', but if as Mrs. Beem claims, he was not murdered at all, but committed suicide, his relatives stand no show for the money. The relatives appear to believe that he was murdered, and are actively co-operating with the Chicago Union Veteran league in ferret ing out the mystery. ■__^^^ VETOED BY HILL. Gov. Hill Refuses to Approve the V VV High License Bill. 1 Albany, N. V., May Gov. Hill has vetoed the Crosby high license bill, which passed the legislature April 27. The c grounds on which he vetoed the bill are that it unjustly discriminates iv placing a higher license on beer than on liquors; that it unreasonably taxes grocers' sales of liquors in -packages; that it would operate as prohibitory of the traffic in small villages and rural districts; that the existing laws prevent higher license than are in fact enacted, showing that public sentiment does not demand a compulsory general increase, and (hat the bill is in many essential re spects a partisan measure and not based on -demands of general public policy. *» j * h Parmlee Billings Dead. i Chicago, May 9.— Parmlee Billings, the young man after whom the city of Billings, Mont., was named, died here yesterday. He has been an invalid for some time. During his illness Mr. Billings had a curious liking for buying clothes. He purchased a number of suits which he has not even put on, and it is said that he leaves one of the larg est wardrobes ever collected by one man in this city. His father was the first president of the Northern Pacific road, aud is a wealthy citizen of New York. . .-*-*■ ««_. i>'*/V*' Beermakers Surrender.

A Tribute to the Dead Which Will Go Down in History. The Immense Hall Packed to Suffocation to Hear the Eulogy. The Ceremonies Under he Auspices of the New York Legislature. Albany, N. V., May 9.— Thirty-five hundred persons in the ', Academy of Music in this city to-night listened to an oration by Col. Robert G. Ingersoll, to the memory of Roscoe Conkling, and one-fourth as many more besieged the barred doors, while many climbed to the roof and peeped through the sky lights. ' The ceremonies were under the auspices of the senate and assembly. Col. Ingersoll said: Roscoe Conkling, a great man, an orator, a statesman, a lawyer, a dis tinguished citizen of the republic, in the zenith of his fame and power has reached his journey's end; and we are met, here in the city of his birth, to. pay our tribute to his worth and work. He earned aud held a proud position in the public thought. He stood for independ ence, for courage, and above all. for ab solute integrity, and his name was known and honored by many millions of his fellow men. The literature of many lands is rich with the tributes that gratitude, admiration and love have paid to the great and honored dead. These tributes disclose the characters of nations, the ideals of the human race. In them we find the estimates of greatness— the deeds and lives that challenged praise aud thrilled the hearts of men. In the presence of death the good man judges as he would be judged. He knows that men are only fragments— that the greatest walk iii shadow, and that faults and failures mingle with the lives of all. In the grave should be buried the prejudices and passions born of conflict. Charity should hold the scales in which are weighed the deeds of men. Peculiarities, traits born of locality and surroundings— these are but the dust of the race— these are ac cidents, drapery, clothes, fashions, that have nothing to do with the man except to hide his character. They are the clouds that cling to mountains. Time GIVES US CLEAItER VISION. That which was merely local fades away. The words of envy are forgotten, and all there is of sterling worth re mains. He who was called a partisan is a patriot. The revolutionist and the outlaw are the founders of nations, and he who was regarded as a schem ing, selfish politician, becomes a statesman, a philosopher, whose words and deeds shed light. Fortunate is that nation great enough to know the great. When a great man dies— one who has nobly fought the battle of a life, who has been faithful to every taust. and has uttered his high est, noblest thoughts— one who has stood proudly by the right in spite of jeer and taunt.neither stopped by foe nor swerved by friend— in honoring him, in speaking words of praise and love above his dust, we pay a tribute to ourselves. How poor this world would be without its graves, without the memories of its mighty dead. Only the voiceless speak forever. . Intelligence, integrity and courage are the great pillars that sup port the state. Above all, the citizens of a free nation should honor the brave and independent man— the man of stain- . less integrity, of will and intellectual force. Such men are the Atlases on whose mighty shoulders rest the great fabric of the republic. Flatterers, cringers, growlers, time-servers are the dangerous citizens of a democracy. They who gain applause and power by pandering to the mistakes, the preju dices and passions of the multitude, are the enemies of liberty. When the in telligent submit to the clamor of the many, anarchy begins, and the republic reaches the edge of chaos. Mediocrity, touched with ambitian, flatters the base and calumniates the great, while THE TRUE PATRIOT, who will do neither, is often sacrificed. In a government of the people a leader should be a teacher— he should carry the torch of truth. Most people are the slaves of habit, followers of custom, believers in the wisdom of the past, and were it not for brave and splendid souls "the dust of antique time would lie unswept and mountainous error be too highly heaped for truth to over peer." Custom is a prison, locked and barred by those who long ago were dust, the keys of which are in the keeping of the dead. Nothing is grander than when a strong, intrepid man breaks chains, levels walls and breasts the many-headed mob like some great cliff that meets and mocks the innumerable billows of the sea. The politician hastens to agree with the majority— insists that their prejudice is patriotism, that their ignorance is wis dom—not that he loves them, but be cause he loves himself. The statesman, the real reformer, points out the mis takes of the multitude, attacks the prejudices of his countrymen, laughs at their follies, denounces their cruel ties, enlightens and enlarges their minds and educates their consciences not because he loves himself, but because he loves and serves the right and wishes to make his country . great and free. With him defeat is but a spur to fur ther effort. He who refuses to stoop, who cannot be brib d by the promise of success or the fear of failure, who walks the highway of the right and in disaster stands erect, is the only victor. Nothing is more despicable than to reach fame by crawling, position by cringing. When real ;; . HISTOItT SHALL CE WUITTEX by the truthful and the wise, these men, these kneelers at the shrines of chance and fraud, these brazen idols, wor shiped once as gods, will be the very food of scorn, while those who bore the burden of defeat, who earned and kept their self-respect, who would not bow to man or men for place or power, will wear upon their brows the laurel mingled with the oak. Roscoe Conkling was a man of superb courage. He not only acted without fear, but he had that fortitude of soul that bears the conse quences of the course pursued without complaint. He was charged with being proud. The charge was true— he was proud. His knees were as inflexible as the "unwedgable and gnarled oak," but he was uot vain. Vanity rests on the opinion of others— pride, on our own. The source of vanity is from without— of pride, from within. Vanity is a vane that turns, a willow that bends with every breeze— pride is the oak that defies the storm. One is cloud— the other rock. One is weakness the other strength. This imperious man entered public life in the dawn of the reformation— at a time when the country needed men of pride, of prin ciple and courage. The institution of slavery had poisoned all the springs of power. Before this crime ambition fell upon its kuees— politicians, judges, clergymen and merchant-princes bowed low and humbly, with their hats in their hands. The real friend of man was de nounced as the enemy of his country — the real enemy of the human race was called a statesman and a patriot. Slavery was the bond and pledge of peace, of union, and national greatness. The temple of. American liberty was finished— the auction block was the cor ner stone, It is hard to conceive of the utter demoralization, of the political blindness and immorality, of the patri otic dishonesty, of the cruelty and degradation of a people who supple mented the incomparable Declaration of Independence with the ' fugitive slave law. Think of the honored states men of that ignoble time who wallowed in. this mire, and who, decorated with dripping filth, received the PLAUDITS OF TIIRIK FELLOW MEN". The noble, the really patriotic, were the victims of mobs, and the shameless were clad in the robes of office. But let us speak no word of blame ; let us feel that each one acted according to his light— according to his darkness. At last the conflict came. The hosts of light and - darkness prepared to meet upou the fields of war. The question was presented: Shall the republic be slave or free? The Republican party had triumphed at the polls. The great est man in our history • was president elect. The victors were appalled: they shrank from the great responsibility of success. In the presence of rebellion they hesitated they offered to return the- fruits of victory. Hoping to avert war, they were willing that, slavery should . become VV im mortal. An amendment to the constitution was proposed, to the effect that no subsequent amendment should ever be made that in any way should in terfere with the right of man to steal lus fellow men. This, the most marvel ous proposition ever submitted to a con gress of civilized men, received in the house an overwhelming majority, and the necessary two-thirds vote in the senate. The Republican party, in the moment of its triumph, deserted every principle for which it had so gallantly contended, and with trembling hands of fear laid' its convictious on the altar of compromise. The old guard, number ing but sixty-five in the house, stood ns firm as 300 at Therniopyhe. Thaddeus Stevens— as- maliciously right as any other man was ever wrong— refused to kneel. Owen. Lovejoy, remembering his brother's noble blood, refused to surrender, and on the edge of disunion, in the shadow of civil war, with the air filled with sounds of dreadful prepara tions, while the Republican party was retracing its steps, Roscoe Conkling voted no. This puts A WIIKATH OF GLORY on his tomb. From that vote to the last moment of his lite he was a champion of equal rights, staunch and stalwart. From this moment he stood in the front rank. He never wavered and he never swerved. By his devotion to principle —his courage.the splendor of his diction —by his varied and profound knowl edge, his conscientious devotion to the great cause, and by his intellectual scope and grasp, he won and held the admiration of his fellow men. Disasters in the field, reverses at the polls, did not and could not shake his courage or his faith. He knew the ghastly mean ing of defeat. He knew that the great ship that slavery sought to strand and wreck was freighted with the world's sublimest hope. He battled for a nation's life— for the rights of slaves— the dignity of la bor, and the liberty of all. He guarded with a father's care the rights of the hunted, the hated and despised. He attacked the savage statutes of the reconstructed states with a torrent of invective, scorn and execra tion. He was not satisfied until the freedman was an American citizen, clothed with every civil right; until the constitution was his shield, until the ballot was his sword. And long after we are dead, the colored man in this and other lands will speak his name in reverence and love. Others wavered, but be stood firm; some were false, but he was proudly true— fearlessly faithful unto death. He gladly and proudly grasped the hands of colored men who stood with him as makers of our laws and treated them as equals and as friends. The cry of "social equality" coined and uttered by the cruel and the base was to him the expression of a great and splendid truth. Above his marvelous INTELLECTUAL GIFTS, above all place he ever reached— above the ermine he refused, rises his integ rity like some great mountain peak— and there it stands, firm as the earth beneath, pure as tne stars above. He was a great lawyer. He understood the framework, the anatomy, the foun dations, of law; was familiar with the great streams and currents and tides of authority. He knew history of legisla tion—the principles that have been set tled upon the field of war. lie knew the maxims— those crystallizations of common sense, those hand-grenades of argument, lie was not a case-lawyer— decision index or an echo; be was orig inal, thoughtful and profound, lie had breadth and scope, resource, learning, logic, and, above all. a sense of justice. He was painstaking and conscientious anxious to know the facts— preparing for every attack, ready for every defense. He rested only when the end was reached. During the contest he neither sent nor received a flag of truce. He was true to his clients— making their case his. Feeling responsibility, he listened pa tiently to details, and to his industry there were only the limits of time for manly acts. He did his work and bravely spoke his thought, Sensitive to the last degree, he keenly felt the blows and STABS OF THE ENVIOUS and obscure, of the smallest, of the weakest: but the* greatest-. could not drive him from conviction's field. He would not stoop to ask or give an ex planation. He left his words and deeds to justify themselves. He held in light esteem a friend who heard with half believing ears the slander of a foe. He walked a highway of bis own, and kept the company of his self-respect. He would not turn aside to avoid a foe, to greet or gain a friend. In his nature there was no compromise. To him there were but two paths— the right and wrong. He was maligned, misrepre sented and misunderstood, blithe would not answer. He knew that character speaks louder far than any words. lie was as silent then as he is now. and his silence.better than any frame of speech, refuted every charge, lie was an Amer ican—proud of his country, that was and ever will be proud of him. He did not find perfection only in other lands. He did not grow small and shrunk. withered and apologetic in the presence of any strength. lie was a student of the constitution. He knew the bound aries of state and federal jurisdiction, and no man was more familiar with those great decisions that are the peaks and promontories, the headlands and the beacons of the law. He was an orator earnest, logical, intense and pictur esque. He laid the foundation with care, with accuracy and skill, and rase by "cold gradation and well balanced form"" from the corner stone of state ment to the domed conclusion. He filled the stage. He satisfied the eye— audience was his. He had that inde finable thing called presence. Tall, commanding, erect— in speech, graceful in compliment, Titanic in de nunciation, BICH IN ILLITSTOATIOX, prodigal of comparison and metaphor— and his sentences, measured and rhyth mical, fell like music on the enraptured throng. He abhored the Pharisee, and loathed all conscientious fraud. He had a profound aversion for those who insist on putting base motives back of the good deeds of others. He wore no mask. He knew his friends— enemies knew him. He had no patience, apprenticed with patriotic reasons for those upon whom greatness had been thrust by chance. He could not be overawed by dukes or lords, nor flattered into ver tebrateless subserviency by the patron ising smiles of kings, la the midst of conventionalities he had the feeling of suffocation. He believed in the royalty of man, in the, sovereignty of the Citi zen, and in the matchless greatness of this republic. He was of the classic mould— figure from the antique world. He had the pose of the great statues— the pride and bearing of the intellectual Greek, of the conquering Roman— and he stood in the wide, free air as though within his veins there flowed the blood of a hundred kings. And as he Uvea he died. Proudly he entered the darkuess —or the dawn— that we call death. Un shrinkingly he passed beyond our horizon, beyond the twilight's purple hills, beyond the utmost reach of human harm or help to that vast realm of silence, or of joy, where the innumer able dwell, and he has left with us his wealth Of thought and deed— the memory of a brave, imperious, honest man, who bowed alone to death. m ■ygMrtjlg^ It you want to hiro a - v^jfeW tenement read The Globs fUg W "Want" Columns, Spa you out or employment?
