THE ROCK ISLAND ARGUS, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 28, 1886.
The Daily Abgus. JOHN W POTTER. Tuesday, December 28, 1866. The defeat of Mr. Morrison's motion to consider bis tariff bill recently, through the treachery of some twenty fire democratic congressmen cannot be expected to have a very beneficial effect upon the fortunes of the democratic par ty. It should be remembered that the vote of these democrats was Dot exactly a vote against Morrison's bill. Much worse than that, it was a vote against even considering any measure for the re duction of taxation. Both parties admit that the war tariff should be revised, but whenever an attempt ia made to fulfill the promise of political platforms, the nearly solid republican vote is reinforced by enough recreant democrats to defeat even consideration. The preat mass of the democrats in congress have been true to the promises made to the people. The president also has remembered his pledges and in forcible language has urged the necessity of reducing taxation; but the efforts of both the administration and a large majority of the democratic congressmen have been rendered null and void by the treachery of a handful of al leged democrats under the leadership of Randall. John A. Logan. Our country could never be supplied with so many great and worthy men but that the death of such a man as John A. Logan would be severely felt. No matter what his political uthliations or feelings, he was a brave soldier, a gallant chief in the army, an able and experienced statesman; a great man. He was honest and straight forward iu every public and private act, a man who prized his honor as a man more than honor as a politician . He was true to his party and showed in more ways than one his gratitude to it for his ad van cement and deslinclioa at its hands. When Blaine defeated him for the presi dential nomination in 1884, he did not become a sorehead and turn bis back upon his party's nomination because of personal disappointment as many of the other great leaders of his party dii, but ia order to belter if couid be, ihe chances of success, he accepted second place, and it was not due to any negligence on Logan's part that the ticket was unsuc cefstul. His indest contest for re election to the United Sutes &euate from this state, one of the uwst reniM'kaMe politi cal strugies on record, aain displayed the true niftchood of his disposition. Blessed as he was, without' of the most devoted and affei-tion ite of wives, a woram whose pussi.ir.ate love for him, has become as famous almost as Logan himself, he made her his counsel in all his political and public movements, and his advancement and success is largely due to this facl. He went into the ar.-oy, not as Grant, Hancock, Sheridan and McClellau did, with a military education, but as one of the H?ople, and came out a leader of men. He was one of the foremost leaders of the republican parly, and there was no man in the oarty whose chances were brighter for the presidential nomination two years hence than he. lie was" ad mired and honored by the ntlion and "he was the pride and glory of his own stale.

Proposed Interment of Gen. Logan's Remains in Washington. Bat a Probability that Chicago May Finally be Selected. Washington, Dec. 28. Mrs. Logan is bearing up bravely under ber load of sorrow as veil as could be expected, but she is greatly worn and in a very nervous condition. MRS. JOHN A. LOG AM- The members of the Illinois dtltgation in congres who arc now in Washington held a meeting at the Logan mansion yesterday afternoon, in compliance with the suceestion of Mrs. JjOgan for con sultalion. There were present Senator Cullom and Representatives Hitt, Hen derson, Payson, Springer, Thomas, Townshend, and Keece. Mrs. Logan's wishes with regard to the funeral arrange ments were made know by Representa tive Henderson, with whom she had been conferring. Her inclinations favored a funeral in the senate chamber after the reassembling of congress, and interment, in the meantime, in the congressional cemetery here. The matter was discuss e.l, but no conclusion was reached, the subject being postnonded until today. The probabilities, however, at the time of adjournment pointed to a postpone ment of the funeral until Wednesday of nest week and the temporary interment in a receiving vault here pending a de cisioo as to the place of permanent burial. Since that time further conferences have informally taken place, and the members of the delegation are now of opinion that the services will take place next Friday in the senate chamber, and that the remains will then immediately be con veyed to Chicago. Senator Sherman was at the mansion this afternoon . and was in consultation with Mrs. Logan, who sought his advice regarding the ar rangements. He has already made the selection of a committee to represent the senate, but withholds its announcement until the arrangements shail be determin ed upon.

He was a forcible speaker, a good thinker, and certainly an admirable soldier. He was a most affable gentleman, and made friends fast. SENATOR BECK. WASHnfOTON City, Dec 28.

His in tegrity was absplutej and jfhis tgjnper had 5een equal toll is Integrity he would have got along better. He left no more honest man behind him. Gen. Logan had lived an ex posed life, especially in th Mexican and late wars. He was always at the front in bat tie." A BRILLIANT CAREER. Sketch of the Rary Life of the l):tin fiuisheil Soldier. However men may differ as to the calibre of John A. Logan's statesmanship, no out will deny that he was one of the most re markable men in public life, with a remark able career behind him and a retnarkabk hold upon the masses of people. Logan was developed by the war. T1k cavalry bugler sounded tho keynote of hb character, an I in an atmosphere of dust and powder he grew great. A country lawyer, who found his highest ambition in stirring tin? languid blood of the criminal jury, sprang suddenly to the head of an army, without previous military education, by the mere force of his courage and his martial in stincts. He was the representative of the loyal millions, the beau ideal ofthevolun teer soldier, anJ as such in history will he live. The story that he has Indian blood in his veins is a myth, founded upon the color ol his skin and hair, and is totally untrue. Hit father was a physician, John Logan by name, and came to America from Ireland only three years before the senator wat born. His mother was Elizabeth Jenkins, and her family lived in Tennessee. Logat was born at Murphysboro, a little towr ainong the hills that hem in the Mississippi river, aud was the eldest of eleven children. His early education was such only as the frontier alTorded, and was gained at bit mother's knee and in the log school house where an itinerant teacher at intervals pre sided M'heu he was 18 years old he wat sent to the nearest school, called Shiloh a- adomy, under the jurisdiction of the Meth odist church, and pad ua ted from it intc the Mexican war. H joined the First Illi nois reginvjut as a private, but the military instinct developed, and he afterwards be came a lieutenant, and served both as adju tant and quartermaster of bis regiment. At tho ctte of the war he went into the law office of his uncle, Alexander Jenkins, whe was a great man in southern Illinois, a Jack soman Democrat, and at one time lieutenant governor of his state. It was the love of contest that took him at once into politics, and in 151 he was elected clerk of Jackson county. Bj means of the revenues of this office he was enabled t carry on his law studies and took a course oi lectures at Louisville during the following year, which constituted and completed hi legal education. At once upon his return from Louisville, iu 1S52, he was elected pro secuting attorney of Jackson county, aud wont to the stat legislature in the following year; being re-elected and gaining a local leadership iu the Democratic party, which was recugniwd by his appointment as presi dential elector on the Buchanan ticket in IsVi. At this point he began bin career as a stump orator, and his speeches were consid ered remarkable examples of eloquence, giv ing him a reputation that sent him to con gress in I N" He was an earnest Douglass man, and, being renominated to congress in Nt. stumped the state with great success. Kight here came a critical period in his career, and although there are men who still assert that his sympathy was with the seces sionists there is plenty of evidence that the south had no claim upon him; that, what ever his original sentiments may have been, his public ut terances were always loyal, a"nd that when the crisis came he was on the right side. The country he lived in was full of southern tyni(athizers, his mothers family were secessionists, and bis surround ings made loyalty unpopular. The story that he tendered his services to Jeffersou Davis, is contradicted by that gentleman, who says h- never heard of lxgan until more than a year after the war tegun. There are several witnesses to the fact that in November, Twi.), when Lincoln's election was asured and threats were freely made that he should not be inaugurated, Logan publicly declared that he would shoulder a musket and escort the ''Rail-Splitter1 to the White House. While hs was in Washington attending the called session of congress in the summer ot 1H 1, he went to the front, as many re pre sentatives did, to visit the army in Virginia, and being the guest of Col. Richardson when the battle of Bull Rim took place, he was given a musket and fought through that eventful July day as a private in the ranks. When congress adjourned in August he went home and at onco raised a regiment (the- Thirty-first Illinois) which went into battle at Belmont two months after they were mustered into the army. In the sieg? of Fort lionelson Logan actively engaged, and was badly wounded in the left arm. His gallantry here and at lielmont made him a brigadier-general, and from this time his star row rapidly. He was given command of a division in McPherson's corps, and made a major-general t-foro he had byen a year in the army. In ht dcliiit?d a renomtnation for congress, t-elitving that he could serve hi .oimtry lest in the field. iu Grant's winter campaign in Mississippi and in the siege of Vicfchbnrg Logan bore a conspicuous iart, and his bravery as a leader was proverbial. In the battle of Champion Hill G.-n. Grant sent an aide to inquire whether Logan could not push his men for ward a little. Iigan's profane but charac terise reply was: Ttll Gen. Grant my division an whip all the rebels this side of h I, and will push forward t ill he gives us orders to halt." When Grant was sent to the Army of the Votoriiac and yieldc 1 to Sherman the com mand E the division of lh-i Mississippi Lo gan succeeded the latter as commander of the famous Fifteenth Army Corps, and fol lowed Sherman in the march to the sea. In the depurate assault upon Hood at Atlanta Logan fought as he never fought before, aud when McPherson fell he took command of the Army of the Tennesiee, and with resist less fury avenged the death of the beloved commander. The dispiae. m nt of Logan from a position which he had earned and the promotion of Howard to Mcl'herson's place was a blow i from which the general never did recover. It came very near depriving the army of one of its most gallant and valuable officers. He considered it acruel and uncalled for humil iation, and but for the entreaties of friends would have tendered his resignation. But he remained w ith the army until the evacua tion of Atlanta, when he went to Illinois to stutnp the state for Lincoln. After the elec tion he returned to camp, and led his corpn in the remarkable campaign through the tarolinas. After the surrender of Johnson he marched hts men to Alexandiia, and rode at their heul in the grand review at Wash ington. After being mustered out of the army he was rendered the Mexican mission bv nresi- dent Johnson, but declined it, and, covered w nu giory, returned to his home in Illinois where his political career was resumed. He w as nominated and elected as a congress- man-at-iarge irom Illinois, and served such until his election to the senate to fill the seat of Richard Yates in 1870. During his service in tne bouse he was an active nar- ticipant of the debates and took stronz gi'ouuds in favor of the radical reconstruc tion policy in Thaddeus Stevens. In 18W he ne of the managers on the oart of the uouse in me jonnson uimeachment trial. His first term as senator of the United States expired in 177, when he was defeated for re-election by disaffected members of his own paYty m the legislature of Illinois, and David Davis was chosen in his stead. The Republicans had but two majority on Joint ballot in this legislature, and there were three representatives from the city of Chi cago who voted with the Democrats for David Davis. In 1878, however, he was more successful, and succeeded to the seat of Rich ard J. Oglesby. Gen. Logan has always been on active man at all military reunions and was one of the founders of the Grand Army of the Repub lic, which originated at Decatur, Ills. He was the first national commander of that or ganization, and as such issutd the order in 1SB8 for the decoration of the graves of Union soldiers the 30th of May. Until recently Gen, Logan's residence in Washington was in a boarding-house, in which hs occupied two modest rooms for more than twelve years, A year ago he moved into a new residence a house of his own known as the "Calumet," where he lived inmore comfort than before. Gen. Logan was always a leader in secur ing pension legislation; was one of the most urgent advocates of the arrears of pension bill, and has never failed at each meeting of congress to present a bill for the equalization of bounties. He had matured a measure to pan sion every mau who saw active service in tho war. He was radical on the subject of in ternal improvements, always voted for lib eral appropriations for rivers and harbors, and gave his support to railroad land-grant measures. Hi3 iersonal honesty, however, was never doubted, and his poverty was the best evidence of his integrity. Having boon in public life almost since he reached his ma jority, aud having given his entire time to politics, he had no time to engage iu lucra tive employ uieut, and his entire property consisted of a residence on Calumet avenue, in Chicago, which is worth from ti,00t) to $:-SO,uoo, and a lai m at his old home u south ern Illinois, bust-lea a house iu Washiugtou. Jso one whooe intimacy with tho Logan family has given him a knowledge of its p tst will deny to Mrs. Logan the credit of being her husband's most energetic advocate and judicious adviser, aud at tbd same time a de voted mother. 8he has two children a daughter, who is the wife of h'ay master Tucker of the army, now stationed at Santa Fe, and a son, Manning, w ho was for a time a cadet at West Point, having inherited his father's military ambition. Both of them were educated by Mrs. Logan, or under her personal supervision ; both were constantly at her side; in the camp, during war time, and in the most exciting political campaigns, she never for a moment neglected the duties of her household or forgot her children's claims. Gen, Logan's popularity was with the masses. Iu tbs country, among the farmers, and particularly with the veterans of the war, be was very strong. Logan had t&e reputation of being a chronic growler, and Gen. Grant once said that he "was never at peace except in war." He throve nu opposition uud vus never so cool or so good natiuvd as w hen he was in the miust of an exciting contest. Gen. Grant, when ho was in the While House, once described his characteristics by comparing him with tho late O.iver P. Morton. Morton will come to me," said Grant, "w ith two ro-qu-wts. 1 will grant one of them and he will go away bouslmg ot his iutlucnce with the administration. L tgau w ill come with thirteen requests.
