State senator of Ohio major general the army of inc United states an d elect to the National . .1 combination of honors so varied so elevated within a period so Brief and to a Man so Yonne. Is without precedent or parallel in the history of i ii country. Garfield s army life was begun with no other military knowledge than such As he had hastily gained from books in the Icv a months preceding his March to the held. Stepping from civil life to the heal of a regiment the order he received when Leady to Cross the Ohio was to assume command of a brigade and to operate As an Independent Force in Eastern Kentucky. His immediate duty was to Check the Advance of Humphrey Marshall who Vas marching Down the big Sandy with the in Henrion of occupying in connection with other Confederate forces the entire territory of Kentucky and precipitating the stale into secession. Tyvis was at the close of the year . Seldom if Ever has a Young College professor been thrown into a More embarrassing and discouraging position lie knew just enough of military science As lie expressed it himself to measure the extent of his , and with a handful of men he was Mai Ehing in rough a in Ter weather into a strange country among a has tile population to confront a Larj Jely Superior Force under the comm and of a to anguished graduate of West Point who had seen Active and import unit service in two preceding wars. The result of the Campaign is matter of history. The skill the endurance the extraordinary Energy shown by Garfield the courage he imparted to his men raw and untried As himself the measures he adopted to increase his Force and to create in the enemy s mind Exair grated estimates of his numbers bore perfect fruit in the routing of Marshall the capture of his Camp the dispersion of his Force the emancipation of an important territory from the Cantrol of the rebellion. Coming 10 the of a Long series of disasters to the Union arms Garfield s Victory had an unusual and extraneous importance and in the popular judgment elevated the Voung commander to the rank of a military hero Wica less than 2,000 men in his entire command with a mobilized Force of Only 1,100, without Cannon he had met an army of 5.000 and Defeated them driving Marshall s forces Flora two strongholds of their own selection fortified with Abunda it artilery. Major general Buel commanding the department of the Ohio an Exoler Geneed Aud aide Soldier of the regular army Public spied an order of thanks and congratulation on the Brilliant result on the big Sandy Campaign which would have to died the head of a less Coli and sensible Man than Garfield. Buell declared that his service had called into action the highest qualities of a Soldier and president supplemented these words of Praise by the More substantial Reward of a brigadier general s commission to Bear Date from the Day of his decisive Victory Over Marshall. The subsequent military career of Garfield fully sustained its Brilliant beginning. With his View commission he was assigned to the command of a Briga de in the army of the Ohio and took part in the second and decisive Day s fight in the great Battle of Shiloh. The remainder of the year 1862 was note specially eventful to Garfield As it Vas not to the armies with which he was Seri ing. His practical sense was called into exercise in completing the task of signed him by general Bull of reconstructing Bridges and reestablishing lines of railway communication for the army. His occupation in this useful but not Brillia i Field was varied by service on courts martial of importance in which department of duty he won a valuable reputation attracting the notice and securing the approval of the Able and eminent judge Dvorace general of the army. That of itself was a warrant to honorable Fame Quot for among the great men who in those trying Days gave themselves with entire Devotion to the sender of their country one who brought to that service the Ripe fat learning the most fervid eloquence the most varied attainments. Who Laboured with modesty and shunned applause who in the Day of Triumph sat reserved and silent and grateful As Francis Deakin the Hoar of Hungary s deliverance was Joseph Holt of Kentucky who in his honorable retirement enjoys the respect and veneration of All who love the Union of the states. Early in 1863 Garfield was assigned to the highly important and responsible Post of chief of staff to general Rosecrans then at the head of the army of the Cumberland perhaps in a great military Campaign no subordinate officer requires sounder judgment and quicker knowledge of men than the chief of Staft to the general. An Wudl Scheet Man in such a position can sow More discord Breed More jealousy and disseminate More strife than any Otner officer in the entire organic ration. When Genera Garfield assumed his new Ilu ties lie found various troubles already Well developed ind seriously a in acting the value Ana Ellic ency of the army i the Unm Berland. The Energy the impartiality and the tact with which he sought to allay thes Jisi in Sions and to disc Haig the a Titis Ltd his new and trying position will always remain one of the most striking proofs of his great versatility. His military duties clo sed on the memorable Field of Chickamauga a Field which however disastrous to the Union arms gave to him the Occa Ion of winning Imperi liable laurels. The very rare distinction was accorded him of a great promotion for his bravery on a Field that was Otist. I resident Lincoln appointed him a major a general in the army of the United states for Gallant Aud meritorious conduct in the Battle of Chickamauga the army of the Cumb a and was reorganized under the command of general Thomas who promptly offered Garfield one of its divisions. He was extremely desirous to accept the position but ivies by the fact that he halt a. A Vear before been elected to Congress Aud the time when he my t take his eat was near. He preferred to remain in tie military service Aud had within his own breast the largest co Fidenco of Success in Trio wider Field which his new rank opened to Hini. Balancing the arguments on the one Side and the other to determine what was for tic Best desirous above All this Iii to do his patriotic deity he was decisively Iii fenced by the advice of president and Secretary Stanton both of whom assured him that he could. At that time he of special value in the House of r ves. He resigned his commission of tel Igor general Oti the Quot eth Day of it Mcember 18-. And Tooi his seat in the House of representatives on the 7tb. He bad served to o years and four Mouths in the .a.rmy, and had just cum. Meted his Tinty second a ear. The thirty i tilth Contr ass is pre eminently entitled in he store to the designation of the War Congress. It was while the War was a Hgt Iii and every Melter was chosen upon the issues involved in the continuance of the shrug Lyle. The Thirry seventh Contress had indeed legislated to a a Dirge extent on War measures but it Wiks chosen before any one believed that secession of the states would be am rally attempted. The of the wok which Feli upon its six Cossor was both in respect to the vast sums of Morey for the support of the army and Navy and of the new and cd Tenor i Iiara Powers of legislation Ivanich it was forced to exercise. Only states were Reid resented and members were upon its Roll. Among these were Init in a Larty leaders on both sides veterans i i the Public ser vice with established Feuu Vatious for ability and wit i that Sicili Only from parliamentary experience. Into this assemblage of men Gar left entered without spec ii preparation Ai d it i Crit almost be said . The cities Tion of taking command of a division of troops under general Thomas or Taniuk his seat in con arcs was kept open till the last moment so late indeed that the resignation of his military . I and his appearance in the House were almost . He wore the uniform of Fijor general of the United states army on Sti Turda and on monday in civilian s dress he in sacred to that Roll Call As a in Congress from the state of Ohio. He was Estic chaily fortunate in the constituency which elected Hira. Descended almost entirely from new ii Giand Stock the men of the Ashtabula District were intensely Radical i All ones this relating to in main rights. Well educated i if a Thor orighly intelligent in Al airs acutely of i Caracter not Quick to bestow , Aud slow to withdraw it they were Ai inc the most hot it enl and most exacting of snap i ters. Their Lintn icons Trust in men in a hmm Tivey have once Coll red is illustrated by the up not in eled fact that Litisha Whittlesey Ionia k. Giddings and James a Garfield represented the l for Lifty for Yiirs. Quot a Liere is no of Man s ability in any Dei it Art menu if Public he Mote severe than service in Uio of there is no place where so Little deference is paid to reputation previously acquired or to Eminence won outside no place where so Little is shown for the feelings or the failures of beginning. What a Man gains in the House he gains by sheer Virce of his Koivu character and if he loses and Falls Buck he must expect no mercy and Uyell acc it Ive no sym Paliy. It is a Field in which the survival if the strongest is the recognized Rule and can deceive and no Glamour can . The real main is discovered his woth is impartially weighed his rank irreversibly decreed. With Luis Sibiyl a single exception Garfield was the Youngel member in the House when he entered and wins but seven years from his College timid nation. He had not been in his seat sixty Days before his ability was Atid his place conceded. He stepped to the front with the confide not f one who belonged there. The House was crowded with Strong men of both parties tii Letee of Triem have since been transferred to the Senate and Many of them have served with distinction in the gubernatorial i pairs of their Renjie civic Stales and on foreign missions of great consequence but among them All none grew so rapidly none so firmly As Garfield. As is said Trevlyan of his parliamentary hero Garfield Quot succeeded Quot by cause All the world in concert could not have kept him a the Back ground and because when once in the front he played Liis part with a prompt intrepidity and a commanding ease that were but the outward Synin Toins of the immense reserved of Energy on which it was Power to draw Quot indeed the apparently reserved Force which Garfield was one of his great . He never did so Well but that it set Raed he could easily have d me better. He a ver Exi ended so much strength Bill that he seemed Quot to be holding a ditto incl p wer at Call. This is one of the happiest and rarest distinctions of in Eil Active debater and often counts for As much in persuading an As the eloquent and elaborate argument. The Groat measure of Garfield s Fame was filled by his service in the Honse of representatives. Ilis military life Illust at a by honorable performance and Rich in Promise was As he him a Quot if Felt prematurely Teliin Inaten and necessarily income Ilene. Speculation As to what he might have done in a Field where the great Price Are so few tin not be i it roti Able. It is Sullick sent to Sny that As a Soldier he did his duty bravely he it lid it intelligently he an enviable Fame and he retired from the service without blot or breath against him. As a lawyer though admirably equipped for the profession he can scarcely be said to have entered on its practice. The few cil Orts he made at the bar were Dis Iii Enisher by the same High order of Talent which he exhibited on every Field where he was put to the test and if a Man May be accepted As a competent judge of his own capacities and adapt tins the Law was the profession to which Garfield should have devoted himself. But fats ordained otherwise and his reputation in history will rest largely upon his service in the House of . That service was exceptionally Long. He was nine times Couse Cut vely it Hosen to the House an Honor enjoyed by not More than six other representatives of the More that 5,00.1 who have been elected from the organization of the government to Liis hour. To a parliamentary orator As a debater on an Issue squarely joined where the position had been chosen and the group to Laid out Garfield must be Assia ined a very High rank. More perhaps than any Man whom he was Asforia led in Public life he gave careful and systematic study to Public questions and he came to every i scission in which he took part with elaborate and Complete prepare Ion. He was a steady and indefatigable worker. Those who imagine that Talent or Genius can Supoly the place or achieve the result of labor will find no encouragement in Garfield s life. In preliminary work he was Apt rapid and skillful. He in a Hijii degree the Power of readily absorbing ideas Aud fac a and like doctor Johnson had the Art of getting from a Book All that was of value in it by a residing apparently so Quick and cursory that it seemed like a Mere glance at the table of a contents. He was a pre eminently fair Aud candid Man in debate took no Petty advantage stooped to no unworthy methods avoided personal allusions rarely appealed to prejudice did not seek to inflame passion. He had a quicker Eye for the Strong Point of his adversary than for his weak Point and on his own Side he so marshalled his weight arguments As to make his hearers forget any possible Lack in the Complete strength of his position. He had a habit of stating his opponent s Side with such amplitude of fairness and such liberality of Concession that his followers often complained thai he was giving away. But never in his prolonged participation in the proceedings of the House did he give his Case away or fail in the judgment of competent Andi Ippa trial listeners to gain the Mastery. These characteristics which marked Garfield As a great debater did not however make him a great parliamentary Leader. A parliamentary Leader As that term is understood wherever free representative government exists is necessarily and very strictly the Organ of his party. An ardent american defined the instinctive wan nth of patriotism when he offered the Toast Quot our country always right but right or wrong our the parliamentary Leader who has a body of followers that will do and dare and die Lor the cause is one who believes his party always right but right or wrong is for his party. It to More important or exacting duty devolves upon him than the selection of the Field and the time for contest. He must know not merely How to strike but where to strike and alien to strike. He often skilfully avoids the strength of his opponent s position and scatters confusion in his ranks by at tacking an exposed Point Theu really the righteousness of the a use and the strength of logical entrenchment Are against him. He conquers them both against the right and the Beavy Bat Talio ii As when Young Clarles Fox in the Days of Bis Toi ism carried the House of commons against Justice. Agaid2t its in Memona rights against his Avn couitlon5, if indeed at that period Fox had convictions and in the Inge meet of a corrupt administration in obedience to a tyrannical Sovereign Drobb Wilkes from thee to to which in the electors of Middlesex had Chofen him and installed Luttrell a Defiance not merely of Law bus of Public decency. It an achieve Elf of that kind Garfield was Esq a a Fiedt disqualified by the Lext wre of his mind by the honesty of be heart by is conscience and by every instinct and aspirate to of his nature. The three most distinguish so parliamentary leaders hitherto developed in this country Are or. Clay Ivor. Douglas Aud or Phi Deus Ste ens. Each was a consummate ability of great Earnestne a of intense personality differing widely each Rora the others and yet with a signal trait in common the Power to command. In the give and Ike of daily the Art of controlling and consolidating Roii Festant and refractory followers in the skill to overcome All forms of to meet with and courage the varying phases of a looked for assault or unsuspected defection it would be Milci cult to rank with these a Fourtly it name in All our history. But of or. Clay was the greatest. 3t would perhaps be impossible to find in the Parli Ameo tar annals of the world a parallel to or. Clay in is it. When at sixty four years of age he took the control of the whig party from the president who has i received their Suffrages against the Jower of we Sterin the Cabinet against the eloquence of Choate in the Senate Ugi Otist the herculean Efferts of Caleb Cushing Aud Lle try a. Wise in the House. In unshared leadership in the Pride and plenitude of Power he in irked Agi inst John Tyler wish deepest scorn the mass of that coup Ziering column which had so ept Over the Lan Diullo. And drove his adminis ratio to Teek shelter behind the lines of his political foes. Or. achieved a Victory scarcely less wonderful when in , against the secret of a Strong administration against the Wise counsel of the folder chiefs against the conservative instincts Aud even the moral sense of the Cou ulry. Be forced a reluctant Congress into a repeal of the Missouri Compromise. Or. Thaddeus Stevens in his cart guests from 186.5 to Isis actually advanced his Parli montary leadership until Congress tied the hands of the president Aud governed the country by its own will leaving Only Peronne univ duties to be disc a ged by the executive. With 2, of patronage in his hands at the opening of the coi test aided by the Active farce of Sewid in the Cabinet twirl the moral 7>ower of cease on the Bench Andrew Johnson could a Vot command the support of one third in either House against the uprising of which Thaddeus Stevens it vah tie animal big spirit and the unquestioned Leader from these three great men Garfield differed radically Dilverd in the i Quality of his mind in Kleinp Grameni in the Forni and of ambition. He could not do v. Hat they did but he could do what Tlajy could not and in the bread Ali of his Gressional work Bolef that which will in Leer exert a potential influence among Raen and which measured by the severe tests of posthumous criticism will secure a More enduring find More enviable Fame. Tii Ose unfamiliar with Garfield s Industry and ignorant of the details of ids work May. In some , measure them by the a Hidais of n one of the generation of Public men to which he belonged has contributed so much that will be valuable for future reference. His spot eyes Are numerous Many of them Brilliant Alloi them Well studied carefully phrased and in exhaustive of the subject under consideration. Collected the scattered pages of ninety Royal Octavo a aulwes of Congress Stoml it ecord they would present an invaluable compel Delura of the polite Cal history of the Mosc important Era through which the National government has Ever passed. When the Lii Story of this period shall be impartially Quot written when Var legislation measures of re constriction Protection of human , amendments to the Constitution Maimi tenancy of nubile credit Steps toward specie resumption True theories of Revenue May be reviewed unsure rounded by prejudice and disconnected from Par the speeches of Garfield will be estimated at their True value and will be found to comprise a vast Marazine of fact and argument of Clear analysis and sound conclusion. Ini leed. If no other authority were acc Syible his in the House of from december , Toji Ine lamp St would give a Well Donn acted history and Complete defense of the important legislation of the seventeen eventful years that oust tute his parliamentary life. Far beyond that his speeches would be found to forecast Many great measures yet to a completed measures which i he knew were beyond the rub lie opinion of the hour out v7hichhe confidently believed would secure popular approval within the period of his ohm Lif Tiina and by the Aid of his own Efi Orts. Differing As Garfield does from the Brilliant parliamentary loaders it is not easy to find his counterpart anywhere in the record of american Public life. He perhaps More nearly resembles or. Seward in his St preme Faith in the All Eon a nering Power of a a principle. He had the love of learning and the patient Industry of investigation to which John Jii incy Adams Oves his prominence and his presidency. He had some of those ponderous elements of mind which Dis Ting Wishod a or. Webs or and which indeed in All our Public life have left the great Massachusetts senator w without an intellectual peer. In Jii Glisn parliamentary history As in our own the leaders in the House of comr Loiis pres it Points of essential difference from Tiar Field. But some of his methods recall the bust features in the , Index indent course of sir Rob it Peel and striking resemblances Are discernible in that most prom siting of modern conservatives who died too Early for his country and Iii Fame the lord George Bentinck. He had All of Burke s love for the Sublime and the Beautiful with possibly something of hts Supe Abund Anee and in his Faith and his Magni mity in his Power of statement in his Subtle analysis in his faultless logic in his love of literature in his and world of illustration one is reminded of that great statesman of to Day who confronted with obstacles that would daunt any but the , reviled by those whom he Rould relieve As bitterly As by those a it Hose supposed rights he is forced to invade still labors with Serene courage for the amelioration of Ireland and for the Honor of the English name. Garfield s nomination to the presidency while not predicted or anticipated was not a Surprise to the country. His prominence in Congress his lid qualities his wide reputation strengthened by his then recent election As senator from Ohio kept Hira in the Public Eye As a Man occupying the very highest rank among Liose entitled to be called statesmen. It was not nacre Chance that brought him this High Honor. Quot we must Quot says or Emerson Quot reckon Success a trait. If Eric is in robust health and has slept Well Aud is at the top of his condition and thirty old at his departure from Greenland he will steer West and ship will reach new fund had. But take Eric out and put in a Stronner and bolder Man and the ships will sail 600, 1,001,.500 Miles farther and reach Labrador and new eur land. There is no Chance in As a candidate Garfield steadily grew in popular favor. He was met with a storm of detraction at the very hour of his nomination and it co Tui used with increasing volume and Yaomei Ituna until the close of his victorious Cam Paigan no might nor greatness in mortality can censure scape Bac wounding the whitest virtue strikes. What King so Strong can tie the Call no in the slanderous Lon Ria a Urfer it All he was Calm and Strong and confident never lost Hissel i session did no unwise act spoke no Hasty or ill considered word. Indeed nothing in his whale life is More remarkable or More creditable than his bearing through those live full months of vituperation a prolonged agony of trial to a sensitive Man a con Stait tand cruel draft upon the Powers of moral Eil Durance. The great mass of these unjust imputations passed unnoticed and with the general debris of the Campaign Tell into oblivion. But in a few instances the Iron ensured his soul and he died with the injury unforgotten if Noi. Yufor Given. One aspect of Garfield s candidacy was unprecedented. Never before in the history of partisan contests in this country had a successful presidential acid Date spoken freely on passing events and current issues. To attempt anything of the kind seemed novel Rasli and even desperate. The older class of voters recalled the unfortunate Alabama letter in Ivsich or. Jay Vas supposed to have signed Bis political deah warrant. They remembered also the hot tempered effusion by which Jeneral Scott lost a Large share of his popu Laritz before his nomination and the unfortunate speeches which rapidly consumed the remainder. The younger voters had seen or. Greeley in a series of vigorous Aud original addresses preparing the pathway for his own defeat. A unmindful of these a a nags a needing the advice of friends Garfield spoke to Large crowds As he journeyed to and from now York in a Gist to a great multitude in that cite to delegations and deputations of every kind that called at Mentor during the summer and autumn. With innumerable critics watchful and eager to catch a phrase that might be turned into odium or ridicule or a sentence that might be distorted to his own or his party s injury Garfield did not trip or halt in any one of his seventy speeches. This seems All the More remarkable when it is remembered that he did not write what he said and yet spoke with such logical consecutive Ness of thought and such Aamira ble precision of phrase As to defy the Accident of mis report and the Malignity of misrepresentation. In the beginning of his presidential life Garfield s experience Aid not yield him pleasure or satisfaction. The duties that engross so Large a portion of the president s time was a a tasteful to him Aud were an favourably conttasis4 with his legislative work. Quot i have been dealing Al these years with ideas Quot be impatiently Esco time one Day Quot Aud Here i Ara dealing Only . 3 have been heretofore i Reading of Tbs Fonda mental Princis is of government and 2>sre 1 a considering All Day whether or b Shunli be a i pointed to this or that he seeking some Prai tical Way of correcting tiie evils a Rio eng from the Distri it n Tikiun of overgrow a a gtd nov Fieldy patronage evils always appreciated and leu discussed by him but whose or to Iii Tud had been More deeply impressed upon his Iii ind since his accession to the presidency. Had he lived a improvement in the Mode of appointment and Quot lit the tenure of of lion Fri old have been proposed by him and with Aid of Congress no doubt perfected. But while Many of the executive duties were not grateful to Hira he was assiduous and conscientious in their it Sharge. Prom the very outset he administrative Talent of a High order. He grasped the Helm of Ohice with the hand of a master. In this respect indeed he constantly Many who were most intimately with him in the Quot government and those who have feared that he might be lacking in the executive foully. His disposition of bo.�3ness was orderly we . His Power of Iii . And his skill in classification. Enabled his to dispatch i a vast Liritis a of detail with Singliar promptness and ease. His Cabinet meetings were admirably inducted. His Clear presentation of oficial subjects Bis Well Jii sidereal Sugg i non of topics on we tech discussion was invited Ais Quick decision when All had been heard combined to show a Thorou tryness of mental Trai iia a As rare Ashi natural ability and his facile adaptation to a new and Era aged Field of labor. With perfect comprehension of All the inheritances of the Quot or with a Cool calculation of the obstacles in Hia Way impelled Al Waya by a generous Eiith i him Garfield that much might be done by his administration i wards restoring Harmony Between Iho dil Ferens sections of the Union lie was anxious to to Sleuth Aud speak to tiie people. As Early As april lie had in Efi actually endeavoured to arrange a Trio to Nashville whither he had been cordially invited Ami he wus again disappointed a few a asks later to find that he could not to to South Ca ii Olina to attend the Centennial Celebration of the Victory of the cow Eris. But for the autumn he definitely counted on being present at three memo Raou assemblies in the Troi uhf the Celebration m York town. The a pening of the Cotton exposition Ai Atlanta and the meeting of Trio army of tie Cumberland at Nattan Oogie. He was abroad turning Over in his Milid his address for , Aud the three taken together he said to a Friend gave him the exact scope and verge which he needed. At York Tosun h e would have had before him the asset a Anions of a Hundred years that bound the South and the North in the iia Rcd memory of common danger Aud a com anon Victory. At Atlanta he would present the Tia serial interests and the Industrial development which i appealed to the Thrift and Independence of every household and which should unite the two sections by the instinct of self interest Anda Elf de sense. At would revive Mera ories of the our Only to show that after Alliots a and All its sufferings the country was stronger and greater the Union rendered indissoluble and the future through i the agony and blood of one generation made brighter and better for All. Gai Field s the Success of h a a administration was High. With Strong caution Aud s user Vatish in his nature he was in no danger of attempting rash experiments or of resorting to the empiricism of is statesman sold. Bat he be lived that renewed and closer attention should it be Given to questions affecting the inaterji4 interests and commercial Prosperity of fifty millions of people. He believed that our Continental re lations extensive and undeveloped As they Are involved responsibility and could be Multi rated into profitable Friendship or be abandoned to harmful indifference or lasting enmity. He believed with equal Confidence that ail forerunner to a new Era of National Progress must be a feeling of Contentment in every Section of the Union and a generous belief that the benefits Aud burdens of government would be common to All him Elf a conspicuous ill iteration of what ability and ambition May do under Republican institutions he loved his cot try with a passion of patriotic Devotion and every waiting thought was Given to her advancement. He was an american in All his aspirations and he looked to the destiny and influence of the United states with the philosophic composure of Jefferson Aud the demonstrative Confidence of John Adams. The political events which disturbed the Tyesi Dent s Here Unity for Many weeks before that fateful Day in july form an important chapter in his career and in Liis own judgment involved aues Tioy a of principle Ami of right which Are vitally essential to the constitutional administration of the Federal government. It would be oat of place Here and now to speak the language of controversy but he events referred to however they May continue to be source of Contention with outliers have become so far As Garfield is concerned As much a matter of history As his nor ism at Chickamauga or his illustrious service in the House. Detail is not needful and personal antagonism shall not be rekindled by any word uttered to Day. The motives of those oppo intr Bini Are not to be Here adversely interpreted 3 nor their Coure harshly characterised. But of tie dead president Thig is to be said and stud because his own speech is forever silenced and he can be no More heard except through the Fidelity and the love of surviving friends from the Iselin a Iii to the end of the controversy he so much deplored the president was never for one moment actuated by any motive of gain to Himsel a or of loss to others. Least of All men did he Harbor revenge rarely did he Ever show resentment and malice was not in his nature. He was congenitally employed Only in the Exchange of Good of vices and the doing of kindly deeds. There was not an hour from the begin nil ing of the trouble till the fatal shot entered his body when the president would not gladly for tiie Sake of restoring Harmony have retraced any we he had taken if such retracing Lead merely involved you sequences personal to himself. The Pride of consistency or any supposed sense of humiliation that might result from Sun Anderina his position had not a Feather s Weiglin with. Him. No Man was Ever less in eject to Stieh influences from within or from without. But after most anxious deliberation Aud the coolest Survey of a vol the arcu stances he solemnly believed Itiat the True prerogatives of the executive were involved in the Issue which had been raised said that he would be unfaithful to his supreme obligation if he failed to maintain in All their vigor the constitutional rights and dignities of his great office. He believed this in All the convictions of conscience when in sound and v porous health Aud he believed it in his suffering and prostration in the last conscious thou Ahti which his wearied mind bestowed on the transitory stuns Gles of life. More than this need not be said less than this ii Ouid not be said. Justice to the dead the highest obligation that devolves i it on the living demands the declaration that in All the bearings of the subject actual or possible the president was Content in his mind in his conscience immovable in his conclusions. The religious element in Garfield s character was deep Aud Earnest. In his Early youth he the Faith of the disciples a sect of that great Baptist communion which in Milf erect ecclesiastical establishments is so numerous and so influential throughout All parts of the United slates but the broadening tendency of his mind Aud inquiry were Early apparent and carried inn beyond the dogmas of sect and the restraints of ass elation. In selecting a College in which to continue his education he rejected Bethany though presided Over by Alexander Campbell the greatest preacher of his Church. His reasons were characteristic first that Bethany leaned too heavily toward slavery and second that being himself a disciple Aud the son of disciple Pai in to he bad Little acquaint Ance with people of other beliefs and he thought it would make him More libel quoting his Ovva words both in his and general views to go inso a new Circle Aud be under new Ittu ence. The Liberal tendency which he anticipated As the result of wider culture was fully a utilized. He was emancipated from Mere sectarian belies and with eager interest pushed his investigations in the direction of modern progressive thought. He followed with quickening step in the paths of exploration and speculation so fearlessly Troi Iden by Darwin by Huxley by Tyndall and by other living scientists of the Radical and advanced Type. His own Church binding its disciples by to formulated Creed but accenting the old and new testaments As the word of god with unbiased Liberty of private interpretation favored if it did not stimulate the spirit of investigation. Its members profess with sincerity and profess Only to be of Oue mind and one Faith with these who followed the master Aud who were first called christians at Antioch. But however High Garfield reasoned of Quot fixed Fate free will foreknowledge absolute Quot he was never separated from the Church of the disciples in his affections and in his associations. For him it Heid the Ark of the covenant. To him it was the Gate of heaven. The world of religious belief is full of sole isms and contradictions. A philosophic observer declares that men by the thousand will die in Defenso of a Creed doctrines they do not comprehend and whose tenets they habitually violate. It is Equay True that men by the thousand will cling to Church organizations with instinctive and in dying Fidelity when Ribeir Besiei in Matui or years is radically diff ii but from that which inspired them As Neo Phitts. Bit after this Range of speculation and this inti to Neof do Iilah Garfield came i act always with in ones and Delight to the simpler instincts of Rek ou3 Futh which earliest implanted Long est sur Rire.

Shirely if can Ever come from the honors of triumphs of this world on that quiet morning James a. Garfield May Well have Hei ii u Happy Ryan. Noffer cd iding of evil haunted Hira no slightest premonition of danger clouded hit sky. His terrific Fate was upon him in an in in Paiit. One moment he stood erect Strong confident in the years stretching peacefully out before him. The next he Lay wounded bleeding helpless doomed to weary Heeks of torture to silence and the grave.

From its Hopes its aspirations its victories Itilio the visible a presence of do the and he did not Quail. Not alone for the one Short moment in which stunned and dazed he could give up life hardly aware of its relinquishment but through cays of deadly languor through weeks of agony that was not less agony ice cause silently borne with Clear sight a Quot a Calm courage he looked into his open grave.

Masterful in his mortal weakness he became the banter of a nation s love enshrined in the prayers of a world. But All the love and All the sympathy could not share with him his suffering. He trod the wine Oress aloft with unfaltering front he faced death. With lit failing tenderness he took leave of life. Above the Demoniac of the Assassin s Bullet he heard the voice of god. With simple he bowed to the Divins decree. As the end Drew near his Early craving for the sea returned.
