Memorial Day is ag;ain sit hand. Since 1867, when Gen. John A. Log an, then Commander-in-Chief of the Grand Army of the Republic, issued his order to the Grand Army Tosts from east to west that on May 30th the living heroes of the late struggle should honor their dead comrades by paying tokens of respect to their memory and strewing garlands ot flowers upon their graves, Memorial Day has been observed in every city and hamlet throughout the length and breadth of the land by the Grand Army, no matter how few or many the graves filled with the remains of the soldier dead. Since that time, too, the numlier of those who rest beneath the sod has increased so rap idly thnt in many places but a hand ful remain to do honor to a regiment . The day has been set apart as a holi day. Old memories are revived, in cidents never to be forgotten are re lated by the bat tie scarred veteran to his children and a double purpose is served. Not only is honor done those to whom we owe so much, but a spirit of patriotism is inculcated in the minds of the youth of the country which passing time w ill never efface. Memorial Day is a lasting institu tion. In another column we give some interesting comments from various papers regarding the recent Supreme Court decision on the importation of liquor in "original packages." The Woodstock Standard gives the record of Hon. Marsh 0. Perkins of Windsor on the license question w hen a member of the legislature, and it suits the Rutland Herald being for license. Naturally enough the Herald gives Mr. Perkins a hearty endorse ment. The why and wherefore of the Rut land Herald" s move for Judge Royce has caused some questioning. It is generally supposed that the Herald must have believed that Judge Royce would approve a high license law. Or does the Central Vermont wish to have an extra candidate in the field, fearingthat its first reliance may fail? The introduction of Judge Royce's name certainly followed close upon the visit of a well-known St. Albans gentleman to Rutland. Aside from this mild and harmless curiosity Judge Royce's candidacy hardly seems to lie taken seriouslv. Mr. Tage's canvass maintains its strength well and has gained steadily in the face of the personal slander campaign. This being the fact, it might be supposed that our friends, the enemy, would become weary of the low plane on which they are mak ing their canvass. On the contrary, only a few days ago men in Mr. "Woodbury's interest were in Knowl ton, Que., taking affidavits in regard to Mr. Tage's presence there during tlie war, presumably with the inten tion of rehabilitating the ancient and exploded Canadian slander. The "voters of Vermont may look for these affidavits in some form or other be fore long; or perhaps it is designed to spring them on the public at the eleventh hour. The McKinley tariff bill passed the House Wednesday practically unani mous on the part of the Republicans. The only Republican voting no was Mr. Coleman of Louisiana. The pas sage of this measure which accords adequate protection to all American industries and at the same time re duces the surplus revenue, meets with general approval by all who favor protection to the industries of our land. There was no hesitancy to vote in favorof uncompromising pro tection to American wages and Amer ican development and prosrierity. It was n great victory for protection and one that will be followed by the speedy passage of the bill, with as few ch-inges as possible by the Sen ate. Condensed Aovice.

In any business never wade in w here you cannot see Ixjttorn. Tut no depend once on the label of a bag, and count money licfore you receipt it, for he who reads in the dark asks to lie cheat -d. J. S. Whitney, who has been resur rected for political purposes, died ibout ten years ago. What he said during his lifetime may have been misunderstood or niisrememlcrcd. Actions are less liable to misconstruc tion, and circumstances are never prejudiced. Mr. Whitney had only one child a daughter the idol of her father and mother. Whether the selection of her guardian was made by the father on his death-bed, or by the mother and friends after his de cease, we do not know. Only those w ho have had no experience in such cases are ignorant of the fact that the one always selected for the guardian of an idolized child, espec ially of a daughter, is always the warmest,truest,most respected friend, and that friend in this case was Car roll S. Tage. He was unable to ac cept that trust, but the fact that he was the choice of the family speaks louder than words can, the estimation in which he was held bv them. Masonic Week at Burlington. The week from June 5) to 13 w ill be known as Masonic week in Burling ton and according to the announce ment of Grand Secretary Reynolds the various grand bodies will meet as follows : On Monday evening the Vermont Council of Deliberation.

Loss, $1,000. On Tuesday, June 3, Caledonia County Court commences a session with Hon. II. II. Towers, judge, and Hons. Cloud Harvey and J. T. Glen ton, assistant judges. The docket contains 72 civil cases, 22 State, and 11 chancery cases. The Boston Jleeord predicts that Col. W.G. Veazey, of Rutland, will be the next Commander-in-Chief of the G. A. R. It is believed there will be little effective rivalry to his candi dacy in the national convention at Boston, in August. The 49 mission churches show a net gain of 71. the remaining 149 a net loss of seven. In proportion to residing niemlwrship, the mission fields were twice as fruitful as the others. Several churches have receiv ed large ingatherings since the begin ning of the year. The 198 Congregational churches in Vermont made a net gain in mem bership in 1KN9 of only 04. The add itions, especially by confession, were above the average of recent years, but the removels werethe largest ever reported, many churches ha ving revis ed their rolls and dropped absentees. For the Grand Encampment and Grand Lodge of Odd Fellows, at Montpelier, June 3rd and 4th, there has lieen prepared a very fine pro gramme.

A pre liminary hearing in the surrogate's office was liegun several days ago. The heirs will endeavor to prove that Mrs. Kellog, at the time shemadeher will was not sane. The Late Supreme Court Decision. From the issues of various papers for the past, two weeks the following have been condensed for the News and Citizen : lUSTISCTlVELY IMtOlllltlTIONIST. The l ight w hich the court now affirms in one the 'liquor dealers have lieen exercising year after year, and we doubt if the recent decision makes much if any difference to Iowa, Kansas, Maine, or the two Dakotns. Prohibition States have always had to con tend against this undoubted right. It may give the liquor dealers more confidence to work more openly. What next? On to Con gress! The decision has made this a nation al qu-stion. There is no good reason why a saloon should not still be closed as a nui sance. The rights still left to the States are: ( 1 ) To prohibit the manufacture within the State's limits. (2) To prevent sales except in original packages. (3) To prevent even these if they disturb or endanger the peace. The Voice. The good time is coming when we shall have a c'ongress of tern pern nee men.

The following letters from Prof. Campbell of the Johnson Normal School, wno is now Traveling in me east, although written to the stud ents, will be read with interest by our readers : Naples, Italy, April 'is, 18!)0. To the Village School and the Normal School : We are now at the most distant point in our journey, Naples in Southern Italy. This is a most delightful country hnd at this time the whole region is beautifully decked with flowers of every description; the trees are full of oranges, lemons, figs and almonds. Olive trees cover every hill-side; the palen trees, cacti, and othertropical plants abound. We had a pleasant ride from Rome to Naples Saturday afternoon. We passed through many historical places, made famous by the battles of early and later ages; by Hannibal and Ciesar, by Scipie and Napoleon, by Vic tor Emanuel and Garibaldi and by the birth und writings of famous men. Mountains and hills extend the whole distance and upon many of these are old castles in ruins, mon asteries and forts. Many of the villages are picturesqely located on the hills or mountain sides. Most of the people are wretched and live in wretched hovels, degraded and igno rant, while the country is full of immense ca thedrals, costing hundreds of millions of dol lars wrung from the earnings of these miser ably poor creatures. Many are reduced to beggars and crowd around us or run beside our carriage begging piteously. The newer parts of Rome and Naples seem like modern cities, the largerin ourown coun try and are; growing fust, while the older parts, the dark and narrow alleys, the under ground cellars and holes in the earth and dens of every description swnrm with sick aud lame, half starved and ill clothed wretches which seera a curse to themselves und the earth on which they live. Such mis ery I could not before conceive as existing aiiv where upon the earth. Still there is great, wealth here, but it is in the hands of the few, who have magnificent villas, grand palaces and live in luxury. The Catholic church owns the larger part of the property about Rome and a few other citizens the rest These revel in wealth while the nation starves. The contrast between the rich and poor here is something marvelous. We've seen and studied both classes. We continued our study of ruins of Ancient Rome, of museums and galleries of art. We've spent one week in Rome and shall re main a few days longer when we return from Naples, for I am studying tip the school sys tem of Italy ; I've visited theschools of Rome two days and expect to visit them more soon, as well as the schools ot Naples ana Florence. 1 find many commendable features in these schools and much that needs to be imnrnved. We are now located on the beautiful bay of Naples close by the water, the island of I apn a second Gibraltar is in front of us n few miles nwn v : Sorento a little to the left; Her- culaneum and Pompeii still nearer on the west while above all and more striking than all else is the cone of Vesuvius, by day send ing out a heavy column ot smoke which forms a high arch over Mt. Samson to the north ; where the setting sun changes the dark blue of the mountain to golden and the column of smoke to silver it was a sight nev er to be forgotten. To-night the smoke is liirhted up bv the fires within which make it seem like a flame from the top of the moun tain. We expect to-morrow to look into the crater of this volcano, and to gaze upon the ruins of the cities it destroyed nearly two thousand years ago. The task now before us is to get inside of a school house in Naples, no easy matter I as sure vou, for the applicant must go from the U. S. counsel to one official after another with letters and cards until finally the end is reached, just as time and patience are about Used Up. A. U. CAMPBELL. Wednesday, April 30. 1800. VEsrvirs. The Ascent and Descent.- Would that a picture on canvass could be placed before you instead of my attempting to describe the indescribable. I hope to find an artist equul to the subject some time but have not seen him yet. 1 will try to give a few scenes or incidents of the trip, perhaps your artist can illustrate. Picture first the quiet (dirty) town of Cus tellaruare (30,000 inhabitants) on the beau tiful Bay of Naples; two travellers start out with a cab toward Pompeii nvemiles distant. Horses and a guide are ordered here to follow to Boscorealis five miles farther. All is quiet to Boscorealis, then the fun begins; a dozen loafers are ready to help them out of carriage nnd to mount the horses, they swarm around like bees in June about the hive; one seizes the bridle on one side, anoth er on the other, some catch hold ot the stir rups, others grab the umbrella and lunch box, some take hold of the arms to assist in remounting, others stoop down to be used as a loot stool. 1 he beggars having all been beaten off by the use of soldi (pennies) and the umbrella the seeoud scene, which in real ity is almost a circus long drawn out, pre sents itself. Behold the man of the party astride a donkey bo short legged that his feet almost touch the ground on either side; the lady sits demurely on a sorry looking nag, and this is the way they went; the guide seizes the tail of the first beast and a boy en gaged to hold the animals at the foot of the volcano ditto the second; with switches the size of bean-poles constantly applied and a continuous cry of "unckh "uuckti trom both guide and boy the party make good time over the lava loot lulls, plunging through the sand banks of the ancient lava decomposed and winding about among the later streams. An occasional kicfc trom the donkey makes the dust fly and the guide lively. The base of the mountain is reached, lunch is partaken, the equestrians become pedes trians; a dozen men are ready with their "sedan" chains and straps, and anxious to earn a few honest Frtincs by carrying or hauling the party to the top; their services are repeatedly and persistently declined. Af ter two hours steady climbing the summit of the mountain is reached, only the steep cone of the active crater is above; like vultures a crowd of attendants hover around more per sistent than the former. Ihey are repulsed as were the others, and excelsior! the party looks down into the burning fiery furnace of Vesuvius. The upper part is the frustum of a cone, hollowed out like an inverted eone in side, veiy thin at the top and onlya few rods across. A great volume of smoke, steam and gas is now constantly poured forth, which beaten by the wind upon the observers drives them hastily from the summit. Frequent ex plosions occur in which showers ot red-hot lava are sent up to a great height and then fall on all sides. Below the cone are many beds of burning sulphur and holes, or small craters, from which gases issue. Many peo ple visit the volcano; most of them ride up on the inclined railway and are carried or dragged to the top of the cone by the Italian guides. The descent by the foot-path is easy; while the ascent is made by a winding path through sand and over rough lava streams; the downward course is in a straight line through sand or gravel nnd can be made in htteen minutes; it is almost like sliding down a mountain on a glacier. A. H. Camphell. The First District. Without wishing to utter one word of disparagement against Mr. Batch- elder as a man or a citizen, it is our opinion that if Judge Powers is elect ed to represent this district in con gress, in him Vermont will find as able and influential a representative as this commonwealth lias ever had at the national capital in all the years of her statehood. Brandon Union. The House of Representatives with its three hundred or more members has altogether too small a number of really able men. To stand up be side men like McKinley, Reed, Lot lire and a few others requires ability of the highest order, and Vermont wants no other kind. Such a man must be not only a learned man, but he must have also practical wisdom. He should have a thorough knowledge of the needs of the whole country and not only be able to meet the requirements ot his own constituency, but he should also be large enough to comprehend the needs und the demand of the entire country. He should be a nian of keen intellect, Hound judgment, and possessed of an unlimited quantity of common sense. He should look after the interests of the farmer anil la borer as well as t hose of t he manu facturer and merchant. The product of the farmer and of theskilled labor er constitute the basis of our pros- perity. lhese interests should be carefully guarded and upheld in all legitimate ways. A man who possesses all these qualifications in a marked degree, is Judge 11. 11. Powers ot Morrisville. Born find raised among farmers, he has passed his life thus far in the ru ral district, and yet he has by virtue of his ability come to be regarded as one of the ablest men in our State. He is courteous and dignified, yet in all his intercourse is one of the com mon people. He has been a close student of men and measures, and is fully abreast with all genuine reforms. The District owes it to itself and to the whole State to se that Judge Powers is chosen as the worthy suc cessor of Congressman Stewart, and we believe it will too. Iturlington Clipper. The Senate has voted to appro priate $.'500,000 for a statue of (Jen em! (Irantin Washington. THE GOVERNOR QUESTION. One More Charge Exploded. From the St. Johiisbitry Caledonian. The Woodbury organs have fre quently hinted at an improper use by Mr. Page of material gathered by the Republican state committeein the campaign of 1888. Emboldened by the fact that Mr. Page did not rush into print with a frantic denial, their assertions to this effect have grown stronger until a few days ago the St. Albans Messenger made this state ment, as an absolute fact: "These lists are not his to be used to advance his own private and per sonal interests, but belong to the party, and to every member of it, for use alike. That these lists, which in clude the names of all republican voters in the state obtained in the canvass of 1888, are being used by Mr. Page in his pre-convention can vass, is absolutely certain." This being a tangible attack, reach ing beyond the innuendoes so popu lar with our Burlington and St. Al bans contemporaries, the editor of the Caledonian wrote as follows to F. W. Baldwin of Barton, secretary of the republican state committee: There is one feature of the present political canvass that I thought you, as secretary of the state committee could explain. The St. Albans Mrssengrr has asserted that C. S. Page is using the lists of the republican state committee to send out sample copies of the state papers: I can't believe that charge is true and write you to get the facts. Do you have the lists and has he ever asked jTou for them? Has not either Mr. Page or Col. Woodbury, or anybody else, a perfect right to see them bi'cnnse they, the lists, belong to the republican party and not to the chair man or any member of the committee? In his reply Secretary Baldwin stat ed as follows : Since I have been secretary of the republi can state committee (which has been since lSS(i) C. S. Page haw not had or used any of the lists of the committee, and they have not been out of In.v ?T:e in Karton. Soon alter the HtuLe convention in 1SS the state com mittee arranged to canvass the state by- school districts. I know that Mr. Page never stiw the names of the persons on that can vass, and all he ever knew was the result Mr. I'age has not had or examined any of the lists of the republican state committee since I have been its secretary nor has he sought to. Vou ask if Mr. Page or Col. Woodbury would not have a right to see the lists in the office of the secretarv. I know of no reason why they could not. Thus one more campaign slander is disposed ot. There does not seem to be a scintilla of evidence that Mr. Page has used improperly any of the machinery ot the state committee, This has taken the regular course of the slanders aimed against Mr. Page, At first a hint is given that some thing is wrong in Mr. Page's con duct. Then a presumption is raised that as a matter of course he has done so and so. Next, no denial be ing made by Mr. Page, it is positive ly asserted that lie lias done so .and so. Then comes a disproof of the whole story, direct and positive, and the attack collapses and falls to the ground with a sickening thud that echoes all over Vermont. Have our friends, the great dailies in the northwestern corner of the state, any more breech-firing guns in their armory with which to amuse the people The Candidates and an Issue. From the Bane Town News, Under the lead of the men who have usurped control of state affairs, the expenses of the state have been increasing year by year, until for the year ending with June 30, next, the state treasurer estimates that they will have reached the enormous fig ures of $-'M)8,)GG.l)2, or more than double what the yearly expenses were before the rebellion, when there was a session every Vear. What guaranty has Col. U. A. ViVoodbury, one of the active candidates for the republican gubernatorial nomination, to offer that, if he is elected governor, there will be any curtailing of these ex penses .' .Let us see. lie is, and for the past two yetirs has been, the UHtenaiit-govenior of the state. In his official Capacity fie presided over the senate at the ses sion of 1888, and if he did not use his influence, he yielded a tacit con sent to the vast expenditures voted by that legislature, which was con fessedly the most recklessly extrava gant, body that has ever assembled at the capitol. Not only did he not raise his voice in opposition to the appropriations, but lie even allowed himself to be made a member of a junketing commission at a salary of nve dollars per day and expenses, a commission t hat proved a very costly one; its members travelled in palace cars to various parts of New Eng land, and, when they had ended their junket, knew as little about the mat ters for which they were appointed as they did before they started, and had to rely on an architect, who could have been employed before all this expense had been incurred Again, does he make any profession that he will attempt to alleviate the condition of the people by curtailing expenses and, so tar as is in hi.-s pow er, insisting on the most rigid econ omy? We have failed to see any statement from him or his friends to that effect; and furthermore, we feel assured that he dare not make such an avowal; for if he did the interest of a large part of his army of heelers would immediately flag, and he would be in the consomme so early that he could not see out by June 11). On the other hand, what is the po sition of his chief antagonist in the republican party, Hon. Carroll S. Page, of Hyde Park. His record as a manager of state finances will bear inspection; even his most vituperative and windy op ponent, the Free (during the cam paign) Press, does not attempt to pick flaws in it. As inspector of fi nance he won the highest encomiums of the people for his watchful care to prevent the banks from getting in dangerous places because tempted by large rates of interest. He followed the law, and was inflexible in insist ing that its provisions be adhered to, and that if there was any departure from its strict letter, it should be on the side of conservatism. He made a study of state finances, and so thor oughly did he become conversant with the subject, that one of the ablest lawyers in Chittenden county, who had written a studied opinion in opposition to some of his rulings, was, after an interview, forced to ac knowledge that Mr. Page had con vinced him that he was master of the subject of state finance. This is un impeachable testimony as to his ca pabilities as a financier, and, in addi tion to this public record, his private career has been marked by the most careful and economical management of Ins affairs, Further, in every of ficii:! position that Carroll S I'liin? has held, representative, senator, in spector of finance, and chairman of the republican state committee, his ideas of rigid economy haveeyerbeen manifest, and he Inn 'never hesitated to use his voice and his influence to further those views. Finally, Carroll S. Pae is not bound by any clique or ring, and wears no ring in his nose that will prevent him from standing up squarely against any such jobs as were rushed throuuh the legislature of 1888, with the consent at least, if not by t lie advice, of Lieut.-Gov. U. A. Woodbury, lie has the manliness to openly declare his determination, if elected governor, to use everv pre rogative of his office to reduce the state expenses, and in this way re lieve the people who are now groan ing under the enormous tax made necessary by the extravagance of such men as U. A. Woobburv, Mili tary Historian Benedict, and their allies in this canvnws. A Leaf From Page's Record. C. S. Page in his report as Slate Inspector of Finance for 18S. I should, however, come short of what I believe to bo my duty, were I to terminate my official relations with the savings banks of Vermont with out giving expression to my well set tled conviction that trustees, in their anxiety to pay their depositors liberal dividends, aie in too many instances allowing the quality of their assets to fall below the high standard which should be maintained. The large rates of interest which western bor rowers are able to offer are too at tractive for the ordinary investor to withstand, and funds'received for the fine line of government and munici pal bonds which have been maturing during the past few years, have been reinvested, in by far too many in stances, in western mortgages. To show the tendency in this direction your attention is respectfully called to the following facts, shown by the sav ings bank reports for the past ten years. The amount of western mort gages held by the savings banks of Vermont on the 30th day of June in in the years 1879 to 1888 inclusive were as follows : 1879 $1,278,399.63 1880 1,755,309.38 1881 2,219,090.44 1882 : 3,1(58.434.98 1883 3.950,143.44 1884 4.051,274.9(5 1885 4,774,872.17 188(5 5,4(50,271.(54 1887 0,225,903.10 1888 0,503,797.48 Now, whatever may be claimed in behalf of western mortgages, the time has certainly come when we should apply to this matter the homely maxim which; teaches that we should not put too many eggs in one basket. It is true that these investments en able our banks to declare larger divi dends than they otherwise could, but we should not lose sight of the well known principle which should always govern savings banks, that large divi dends are of secondary importance as compared with absolute safety. Confidence in our entire system of savings banks is all important to the end that our workingmen and middle classes, for whose benefit they were more especially established, may use them more and more extensively. Disaster to any one of them inflicts an injury upon all and is a shock to public confidence which causes irre parable injury to the general welfare of the State. Experience demon strates clearly and conclusively that high rates of interest are not the at tractive feature of savings banks in the eyes of the depositor, but rather absolute freedom from any misgiv ings or uneasiness with reference to the safety of the principal. The banks paying the largest dividends are not those which show the most healthy growth. But even if the re verse were true, still the State owes it to the general welfare of all to see that such a policy is pursued as shall prevent, as far as may be, the possi bility of disaster to any. There are several savings banks in Vermont which I believe should have divided fully one-half per cent less per an num to their depositors, during the last four years, investing the extra half per cent in premiums upon first class municipal bonds, bonds of cities and counties whose credit ranks so high that in case of any financial stringency they would be readily con vertible without sacrifice. To do otherwise is to invite a run upon the weaker institutions upon the slightest indication of approaching financial disturbance. Let those who prefer high rates to absolute safety with draw their funds from savings insti tutions. Trustees should cheerfully welcome such withdrawals as b?ing: for the good of their institution. To try to attract deposits by high rates is subverting the purpose for which sav ings banks were established, and in my judgment is little less than a crime. Jt is mv well settled conviction that the law allowing investments in west ern mortgages should be so amended as to permit only 40 per cent of th entire assets of any savings bank or trust company to be invested therein and the law with reference to divi dends so changed as to prohibit the declaring of more than 4 1-2 per cent per annum, until a net reserve of at least 10 per cent, without including furniture, fixtures, Dremiums or un collected interest, be accumulated ; and that until a net reserve of at least 6 per cent be accumulated the divi dends be restricted to 4 per cent. Not a Political Machine. From the St. Johnsbury Calcdi-nian. The Commander of a Grand Army post in Caledonia county received a letter from a friend ot ( ol. oodbury urarinit him to use Ins influence with his post to swing it into line in sup port of the lieutenant-governor's am bition for promotion. This com mander replied that his post was not a political organization. It is be coming evident daily that there are hundreds of old soldiers in Vermont who feel in just this way about the evident attempt to make the Grand Army a political machine. They feel that it is time to cry a halt when the oftico of department commander is used for electioneering purposes when posts discuss in their meetings such questions as whether the fact of having been 111 theservitv constitutes a claim upon the office of governor; and when appeals in behalf of a cei tain candidate for office are sent to officers of the different posts. They know, as one gallant veteran of tin? Old Vermont Brigade recently said, that the veterans have lieen well treated in this state; that they have been the object of honor and reverence such as few m;'n receive; that although they form but about one-twelfth of the voting strength of the republican party of Vermont, they have received the largcrshare of the high offices of the state for many years: and that all has been given as the free-will offering of a grateful Pt-ople- These men, members 01 t tie urand Army, have a strong love for the patriotic order whose bonds were welded amid the lurnace heat ot re bellion and Ihey see that its honor will lie larnisneti ami 11s useniiness impaired if it is used as a machine for furthering one man's political ambi tion. Their good judgment will re buke any such prostitut ion of a noble organization. Where the Central Is. From the st .l.ilinsliuiy l.vpul.lic.u . The Central Vermont influence is lino- oetivelv used for Col. Wood bt l.i Ik in bury as it was two years ago, when ran tor Liemenaiit-iiovernor. 1 nat ifluence is strenuously opposed to iv Paoe. We do not know why. but Mi th le natural p.esuinption is that it is ecause either he has stood between le people and the rich and powerful b. tl corporation, or because Gov. Smith 1 is some favor to asu 01 ine next iveruor which he fears M-. Cage (i ould refuse. However that may be. tin fuel-, remains that the railroad IH'C mleare workingagainst Mr. Cage, and theiraccredited newspaper organ in not find language mtter enough denounce him with. A month from now we shall know hether the Central Vermont is to W un me another Governor for us or not. It is a good time for the masses of the people to shake off this evil influence which has so long dominat ed our State, which has ridden our body politic as the old man rode Sinbad the Sailor. And in the mean time we can apply to our candidate the historic words "We love him for the enemies he has made."
