TUESDAY, APRIL 27, 1897.
We read frequently the productions of
Frederick W. Robertson, the very
gifted Church of England preacher,
who died at the early age of 37. What
a. man of radiant gifts, at once so beau
tiful in the structure of his mind, and
so richly endowed with the gift of
saying things with such diamond-brilliancy
and exquisite taste. His was in
deed a most attractive personality,
and his education was such as gave him
mental furniture equal to all demands
while his equipment of style furnished
forth the riches of his rare Intellectual
mint. In similar words, he had a
style of admirable elegance and beau
ty, and a mind of rare fertility and ex
uberance. What a rich treasury of ex
pression and interpretation he has left
for the enchantment and stimulation
of his readers! We never read even so
much as a rffe from him without
pleasurable emotion and edification. Ha
arouses, satisfies, elevates, for his
thoughts are both fluent and "healthful,
and although suspected and accused of
heterodox views, he taught the great
underlying doctrines so far as we know
and held to a Christianity based on
Christ, and that made men truthful and
pure, unselfish and generous, consecra
ted and self sacrificing, God adoring
and man loving. We repeat, we often
turn to this marvellously endowed
young preacher for good lessons, in
spiring thoughts, high ideas, beautiful
illustrations, exquisite charm of style
and reflection. The other night we found
him saying: "There are no writings
which, at present, offer such interest
to me as Ruskin's. They give a truth
to repose on which is real, whatever
else is unreal." Again he says: "I re
joice that you have taken up Ruskin;
only let me ask you to read it very
slowly, to resolve not to finish more
than a few pages each day." We were
gratified to see this because it was
written somewhere about 1850 or 1851,
at which time we were getting our
own first lessons in this great author
were reading "The Seven Lamps of
Architecture," "The Stones of Venice,"
and "Modern Painters." It so hap
pened thai, when we turned to
. above (we had read it before), we v- -e .
at "thar very time reading daily some
of Ruskin's later productions. Of the
fhrpe works named, we may add, that
in them may be found as splendid and j
wonderful descriptive passages as you
can find out of De Quincey, and some
of them even surpass that great rheto
rican and stylist in the magnificence
. and felicities of diction, and in the
beauty and perfection of description.
"The fact is that there have been but
few writers of English comparable to
Ruskin. He is a master. His style at-
ter 1SC0, became less afiluent, less splen- j detects in it "an unpleasant flavor of

purer, finer, less abounding in inge- j for he is unexcelled in that gift, no lit

conceits of fancy. But, as Robertson tion, to excite to noble and generous
must have supposed, is was the thought j
and not the garb altogether that drew
him to the splendid essayist. The body
of thought in Ruskin is of great value
aside from any decorations of fancy
and felicities of style. He is an in
genious, fertile' and wise thinker. The
pleasure of language is ever present,
but the subtile and weighty thoughts,
so much pure gold, give great valueand
substance to his writings. We refer to
him at this moment not to analyze his
style or discuss his books or to offer
fresh incense of praise to a great an
ther we have admired since early man
hood, and about whom we wrote a
crude little essay more than forty-five
years ago. Robertson loved and ap- ,
preciated him and bears witness to his
extreme worth finds no writings of
contemporaries of such interest to
him, and even prefers him to the reli

thoughtful books, let us urge you to
read some of these if not all. Take
the first named, "Sesame and Lillies."
It is a wise book, full of beauty, and
: so deftly wrought, so replete with lit
erary excellence, it can hardly fail to
engage, to entice you. If you are a
-woman, and have not read "Of Queen's
Gardens," by all means read it. If
ttfere is an essay of equal beauty ad
dressed to women in our language, we j
have yet to read it. It is indeed "a gem
of purest ray serene." It is as good
and wise at it is rich in outward adorn
ment. It is in our judgment pure,
sweet, beautiful, matchless. ;
The essays of Professor Woodrow
Wilson that we have read possess a
decided interest. While he is quite j
successful in his excellent portrayal of
Washington, to which we have referred
several times with commendation, it la
possibly in his literary discussions that
he reaches his highest strain of-excel-lence.
He asserts hU right to be heard
In the purer field of letters. Literature
is not his profession, his chosen arena,
but constitutional law, politics and we
may add historic study. It may be
that we prefer the attractions of lit
erary excursions rather than political
discussions and even biographical in
vestigation and description, but we
find in Professor Wilson's essays a
pleasure that comes nearer to our heart
than his fine portraiture of the massive
Washington or his discussions of con
gressional government. He has al
ways clear insight, and grasps well the
subject In hand. He is a young man
of very uncommon abilities. He has
mental power, culture, taste, insight,
and has enough of imagination to
idealize and Illuminate. In other words
he has faculties In such amplitude, in
such variety, in such blending as to
give him unusual success in his ex
cursions into history and pure letters.
He has given two books that ought to
be held in high estimation in the south,
and very generally read by its culti
vated men and women who are capable
of reading and enjoying something
stronger and more intellectual than
current novels. We mean of course his
"Washington" and his volume of es
says "Mere Literature; Etc." Both of
these have been well received In the
north, but we think better of them
than any critic whose opinion we have
seen. His "Washington" is finer liter
ary workmanship than it is regarded
by the critics we have noticed. His
essays are not as generally praised as
their merits demand. So it strikes us.
The best criticism we have read ap
peared In The New York Tribune some
two or three months ago. The last
paragraph of the critical paper we
"But does the author show that he
himself can illuminate subjects and
employ the arts for which he pleads?
No one will doubt it after reading the
essays on 'A Literary Politician'
(Bagehot), 'The Interpreter of English
Liberty (Burke), and A Calander of
Great Americans.' He explains most
interestingly Bagehot's traits and the
sources of his extraordinary influence
and popularity. We have read much
of Burke and still more about him,
but this essay removes the shadowy
outlines and makes him thoroughly in
telligible and admirable. In thrice the
space we have nowhere else found so
many apt and brilliant characteriza
tions of the great political leaders of
the United States as are to be read in
the paper entitled 'A Calendar of Great
Parts of the volume are not above
criticism. Here and there the dash and
the struggle for effect becomes appar
ent. An affected use of ' 'tis gener
ally at the beginning of a sentence
and a fondness for weaving strange or
obsolete words into his most ambitious
sentences mar the effect at times. Per
haps some readers will synically sug
gest that Dr. Wilson's preaching would
be more effective after doing more
practising. But those who welcome
the truth whatever its source and those
who like to come in contact with an ac
tive mind will find instruction and
companionship in this volume."
RELIGIOUS EDITORIALS FOR
Although Rev. John Watson talks as
if he had but little to do with any trial
instituted against him for heretical
teaching, the theologians are aiming
directly at him. The English Lord
Bishop of Derry and Raphoe, Rev. Dr.
G. A. Chadwick, has published in The
London Expositor a severe criticism
in which he refers to a theological book
by Dr. Watson as "superficially at-

accept At any rate, one writer finds
Watson's published confession of faith
in some antique Oriental author. We
notice that the new editor of Current
Literature copies a passage from Car
lyle's "Heroes and Hero Worship" to
teach what real religion is. And yet
Carlyle did not believe in Christ as
divine, or accept Him in any sense as
his Saviour. The great Scotsman was
simply a Deist, without any knowledge
of the Christian religion beyond an im
perfect theory. With a modern nine
teenth century school all religion is
of the heart only. Be charitable, be
liberal with gifts, talk beautifullv of
the brotherhood of man, build hospit
als and so on and that was fulfilling
the law, true religion, God's will, and
living for Heaven. Christ is left out of
the count, and He Is all and in all. The
benevolences.the activities for good, the
liberal bequests, the service for suffer
ing humanity, the asylums, the hospi
tals, the manifold expressions of love
and sympathy for the race these are
the outputs, the fruits of the Christ
teaching and the influence of the Holy
Spirit. Infidelity, and the "isms" of the
j day build none of these things. It is
the power of Christ in the world where-

comforted, a rending sigh that is calm
ed, a tearful eye that brightens. There
is no such thing as a true science of re
ligion with the Christ omitted. The
writings of able, scholarly men in pub
lic journals and newspapers show often
that they have no practical, personal
knowledge of Christ, and write of reli
gion with the same insight and igno
rance that Bob Ingersoll writes, or as
would any wise, learned Brahmin. The
vital truths are ignored, unknown, un
asserted. It is a sentimental, gushing
religion with them that theorises about
duty and destiny, like Carlyle wrote so

One of the very best religious biog
raphies ever written i3 Dean Stanley's
Life of Thomas Arnold. With the ex
ception of three biographies the best
we know of Boswell's Johnson, Lock
hart's Scott, and Trevelyans Macaulay
we do not recall a better specimen of
this kind of production than that on
Dr. Arnold, of Rugby. It has not been
justly appraised or it would not be so
much neglected. It is large but of un
flagging interest. We are reminded of
this excellent work a tribute of the
student to the teacher by a recent
opinion of the gifted Canon Farrar, of
the Established church of England,, to
his personal friend, the Dean of Can
terbury, Arthur Penrhyn Stanley,
who passed away in 1881.. We had been
drawn to him first through his work
on the Greek church, and then by his
noble biography of Arnold, the father
of 'the poet and essayist, Matthew Ar
nold. The Dean appeared to us as we
often read of him. as a very gentle,
sweet, lovable man, full of opinions, not
apt to accept dogma without question,
given to very liberal views that brought
censure upon him, and with a great lov
ing heart overflowing "with the milk
of human kindness." Canon Farrar
writes of him: "His was the purest,
most childlike, most beautiful spirit I
have ever known. He was a perfect
illustration of that definition of 'Genius'
which describes it && 'the heart of
childhood taken up and matured in the
powers of manhood.' "

Charlotte, N. C. April 23.
The all-absorbing topic of Interest In
Charlotte at the present time Is the
approaching city election, which takes
place May 4th. This election Is. prob
ably, being the most hotly contested of
any city election in many years. Two
candidates are in the field Mr. J. H.
Weddlngton, the present mayor, and
the regular nominee of the democratic
primaries, and Mr. EH Springs, inde
pendent democratic candidate, who
bolted the primaries on account of the
executive committee having changed
the ruling as to the status of voters af
ter the candidates had announced
themselves. Mr. Springs has, possibly,
lost some votes by his action in bolt
ing the primaries, but it is generally
conceded by all who look at the mat
ter outside of the light of strict party
spirit that he has a good case.
The Charlotte Observer always fair
and just to all sides while loyally
tupporting Mr. Weddington, the regu
lar nominee, made an editorial state

drawal, deploring his action in with
drawing from the primaries, but grant
ing that such action was, to a great

and it is impossible to say at this time
which side will gain the victory. Much
bad feeling has been engendered and
various and sundry "mud slinging" ar

characteristic good Judgment, and de
sire to do Justice to all sides, has re
cently made a ruling that no article on
city politics, unless it bears the true
signature of the writer, shall appear
in his paper. This has served to great
ly decrease the number of such arti
cles, much to the edification of the non
partisan readers of The Observer.
Looking at the matter from a non
partisan standpoint, it is very diffi
cult for a voter to say on which side
he will cast his lot. Both of the can

The representatives of this society will
be given a royal welcome, and Char

efforts are being made to see that all
the members and visiting friends are

"The Women's Exposition of the

of art and science will be represented,
and every display will le presented in
a most attractive and pleasing man

vided for every evening during the ex

way of amusements will be made up on
various occasions. This exposition is
something which has not before been
attempted, and its promoters deserve
great credit for the masterful energy
displayed in arranging for so complete
an exhibit. This exposition is to be

will doubtless be a greater rush of
