Usually the reading of Lincoln's Gettysburg Ad dress in both the senate and the house is a part of the proceedings. Last year, for instance. Senator Keyes of New Hampshire read the Gettysburg Ad dress from one of the two existing copies, written throughout In Lincoln's own hnnd. Al su several addresses are usually made by members. So in one way <?r an other considerable Lincoln matter' of more or less value gets Into the Con gressional Record. The following are excerpts from an address by J. G. Monahan, a representative in the Six ty-sixth congress, from Wisconsin : Wherein, then, did Lincoln's great ness lie? A brief review of the man and his work may aid in answering this ques tion. Lincoln was an intense student, not only in books but of men and con ditions, and as day by day he ab sorbed knowledge, which his great memory retained, he became in time a very learned man. though never a scholarly one. He was always true to his higher self and courageously stood for what he believed to be right. There was nothing of the trimmer or demagogue in his makeup. He was honest with his fellow men. true to his friends, and ingratitude had no part in his mental makeup, hence when he made friends he always kept them, and because of his honesty the people trusted him. He acted upon judgment, not Im pulse. and the hysterical and ultra never appealed to him. During the Civil war often his most bitter as sailants were not the men In anus against the government, not even the “copperhead" element in the North, but che abolition extremists. His pa tience was as great as his judgment was sound, and Lincoln the man al ways waited for the place and the hour. He was a genius of common sense; his judgment of men was mar velous. and his trained mind went straight to the heart of all questions, great or small, as from day to day he grandly arose to meet new condl-’ tions and unexpected obstacles. These are some of the reasons why Lincoln was superlatively great during the war and was able to accomplish all that was done. liecause of his honesty the people trusted him: because of loyalty to friends and principles they loved him; gud because of his judgment, tact, and pnHence they sustained him. Historic k?’' waited 4.000 years for the coming of Lincoln. Such a char acter never lived before, and the world may never see his like again. He was created for a purpose; he was a man with a mission: and, with his FORT HAMILTON When British troops forced a land ing the first ithots by an outpost of Colonial troops were fired from the spot which Inter became Fort Hamil ton. Then It was known ns Denyse’s Ferry. After the disastrous battle of Long island In 1770. n fort was built. Efforts to find the cornerstone laid In 1825 were not successful. “Stonewall" Jackson was baptized nt the little church, now St. John’s, and one of the work done, his mission accomplished, he was by a loving Father kissed from scenes of bloodshed and strife to eternal rest and happiness. May we not believe that a fond mother was waiting to wipe the stamp of melan choly from his tired face, and that to day a happy and reunited family are smiling somewhere among the stars, i His life will ever be an inspire- | tion for better deeds, higher aspira tions and loftier purposes. None can read of his life and works without being made a better man or woman. The pathetic story of his early life and constant struggles with poverty and destitution will fill the heart of man with deeper sympathy for* the poor rfnd needy. His success ful struggles under constant adversity to better his condition will be a beacon light that will guide many a storm buffeted boy or girl into the harbor of success. His loyalty to friends and principle, his rugged honesty, and the sweetness of a private life as pure as an angel’s dreath will make for purer homes, better citizenship, warmer and more lasting friendships until time shall be no more, while his unselfish patriotism and devotion to his country and humanity will forever stand as a guide for future generations. Had the nation in 1861 been guided by the voice and wisdom of Lincoln, emancipation would have come with out pecuniary loss to the slaveholder nor would the country have been torn by the horrors of civil war. Had Lincoln been permitted to live, I believe there would have been no carpet-bag government of the South [applause], and many of the so-called reconstruction laws would never have been placed upon our statute books. In his death the North lost Its safest counselor, the South its best and tru est friend. [Applause.] Tn tills hour when hysteria and emotionalism are attempting to de throne judgment and reason and plunge the race Into chaos and ruin, could Lincoln act and speak he would say: “The pages of American history are resplendent with the names and rec ords of great and honest men. Among whom we can point to a Washington, a Jefferson, a Jackson, a Webster, a Douglas, a Tilden, a Blaine, a Thur man., and a McKinley.” Each of these men In his day and generation fought the good fight, kept the faith, and finished the course; and. because judgment, not hysteria, was ' the gulldlng star of each, they lived respected, died regretted, and the fruits of their labors have come as i. ' heritage to us. [Applause.] Take men of this class as a guide for yourself and children, rather than these modern political Jeremiahs, swashbucklers, and civilization de stroyers, who today are bounding from one platform to another, preaching the doctrine of class hatred, suspicion, historic landmarks in the city, when he was stationed at the fort In 1849. Capt. Roliert E. Lee, later the noted I Confederate army general, was for years In command of the post and was a vestryman of the church. The batteries have been manned for the < last half century by officers who have ; won fame in a hundred fields in de fense of their country. ■— " < Scrambled Metaphors. A political speaker said that “the i present government has sown a bar- i doubt, and disaster, and raising new political issues every day. [Applause.] Have faith in your fellow man and keep faith with him. [Applause.] The destiny of the race leads ever onward and upward ; and, from the beginning of history, it has grandly kept step to the music of its mission. i There are more honest men In the ! world today than there were yester -1 day. There will be more tomorrow than there are today. [Applause.] He would ask you to leave the sensa tional press to be consumed in the fires of hatred and passion their hys teria has lighted, the Bolshevist to suffocate and decay in the filth of his own making, and the demagogue and agitator to gnaw at the fleshless bones of monsters their wicked fancies or diseased imaginations have created. He would point to the past and Its lessons where judgment has always finally prevailed and truth ever tri umphed ; and then he would point to the future where the beacon light of hope eternally shines, and in the name of Justice. Honesty, Progress, and Liberty bld us look up and march on. He would urge that equity and fair ness be made the controlling forces to guide the race and that no class should be permitted to harass or destroy the commercial prosperity or social life of 100.000,000 of people who are outside the ranks of greedy capi tal and organized labor. [Applause.] He would say that the Ship of State must be manned by crews who are loyal to the organic laws and govern ment founded and transmitted by the mighty Washington; that she must be kept away from the rocks that wreck and waves that overwhelm. He would command that she Imme diately leave the slough of unrest fed by the poisonous waters of greed, graft, and isms and once again sail out Into the boundless bounding ocean of Americanism, and as the tides of justice once again clasp her keel and the breezes of progress fill her sails as she slowly moves out to sen to con tinue her journey to her final port— Destiny, may we not believe that In words of love, admonition, and hope ns a parting bon voyage and God bless you. he would say: Fear not each sudden sound and shock, ’TIs of the wave and not the rock; * ’Tls but the flapping of the sail. And not a rent made by the gale! In spite of rock and tempests' roar. In spite of false lights on the shore, Ball on. nor fear to breast the sear Our hearts, our hopes, are all with thee. Our hearts, our hopes, our prayers, our tears. Our faith triumphant o’er our fears. Are all with thee: are all with thee! Mr. Speaker, this Nation will never die nor the sun of Americanism grow dim so long as our people cherish the name and are guided by the teachings and example of the sweetest, greatest, grandest character In human history— Abraham Lincoln. [Applause.] vest which Is coming home to roost.” Another said that “the floodgates of irrellglon and Intemperance are stp’k ing through the land arm In arm.” A third that “he (Mr. Balfour) Is a mere figurehead with his hnnd on the rud der.” But to Bishop Knox we must award the prize. He said that Mr. McKenna’s sword was an “overloaded pistol which, being hung up In a tight corner lest it should burst, pretended to be dead until It got up and trotted home on the friendly back of the bish op of St Asaph.”—-Boston Transcript. | I The POSTOFFICE STORE Cody’s Original | Souvenir Store The P.
