Indianapolis Iron Clad Age (Newspaper) - November 28, 1891, Indianapolis, Indiana I i to m a web kit with few . K. Mokkoy h. »., proprietor. Volume 36.�?no. B8 in the a Kier i it a time of life. I Ove 1� the win Jet of oath. S 2.50 a year. Indianapolis ind., saturday november 28, 1891 a tribute from an old time subscriber. I Wiah through the ironclad to express my Heartfelt sympathy for the family and friends of the late or. J. R. Monroe in their sad bereavement. Well i know that words Are cheap things to express the True inward feeling of the grief stricken when bereft of friends near and dear to them As their own lives and were it not that time will Wear off the keen Edge Sach deep affliction would be terrible indeed and could not be Long endured. In the death of doctor Monroe i feel that i too have lost a Friend Alt Hoag not personally acquainted i feel indebted to him for his kind indulgence and the Many favors granted me from his great philanthropic and Noble heart which responded heartily in Accord with All who were striving to improve Mankind. Humanity has lost e Trae Friend in the person of or. Monroe whose place is not easily filed. His work in done and Well done. His labors have been severe an up Hill work against Strong and most bitter oppo Sitio but being conscious that be was in the right and that the principles which he advocated if carried out would tend to elevate happily and improve the conditions of humanity in this life the Only one he knew he was nerved up to Battle against All forms of injustice cruelty and wrong that with his Clear and Active vision he saw were oppressive to humanity. Or. J. R. Monroe has passed from our midst he Lias gone to his final rest in the silent land he is dead but to his family and his near and dear friends he is immortal and while reason lasts they will Ever cherish dearly and lovingly his Sweet memory and imbued by his humane and unselfish spirit take on his Mantle and be greatly strengthened to continue the Good work he so fearlessly and manfully engaged in. The ironclad age has lost an Able candid Plain and outspoken editor whose Brave Crisp and thoughtful editorials have been instructive to thousands of readers of the ironclad who will not easily forget them and will be greatly benefited by putting them in practice in daily life. Or. Monroe s soul was in his life work his life was not a Sham nor did he live in vain. His labors for humanity will Bear fruit in after years. The Yoke of religious tyranny and Blind superstition is being thrown off from Many shoulders of those who have read or. Monroe s writings for a few years past. The liberals and unbelievers in myths dogmas and religious absurdities have lost a most efficient advocate of the Worth of morality and right living in this world a Lover of Justice and equal rights to All however poor. In the writings of or. Monroe wit sarcasm and sound logic was happily blended with a vein of Good humor and common sense that was sometimes amusing but entertaining and convincing to those free from bigotry and prejudice. Many Are the valuable lessons we have Learned from a perusal of his writings and it is with great reluctance that we give him up he being one of the world s great Savior from misery poverty injustice ignorance degradation and slavery of the mind by the popular religions of the present Day. A Strong energetic faithful Leader and worker has fallen from our ranks died with the harness on left at a moment s Call to rest from his labors and his Good works will follow him. Kind and Loving Friend Farewell. R. C. Trowbridge. Tully n. Y., nov. 20,1891. Have written his name where All the years of my life Brief but tender big Raphy by Hon. David Over it shall remain Bright and untarnished. I suppose my ironclad age comes As an Exchange Topeka kan., nov. In 1891. But the difference in Price is so great that i have i air to tto a / to j i kept the account determined it 1 Ever got into a pay-1to nov car draped ing business to remit what i consider i owe. My i columns of the ironclad age told me that or. Monroe opinions have Cost me friendships relationships and had passed away before i unfolded the paper. The checked my earning a Good salary in journalism. I j week before when i read that most Beautiful and have sacrificed All to continue my paper but i must Kyj go is on the Billows Quot i said to give it up soon. I mention this to explain Why i do i it n u i a a Xuy it remit now. When i know that sums which Are due i wife Quot doctor Monroe will not live Long this is must be needed. I Hope you Are Well equipped for he death song. I Felt sure that he could not survive 3 j 1 an editor s opinion and hardships. Harry g. Monroe Liberal Friend a i was thunderstruck this evening when i opened the ironclad age and read of the death of or. Monroe. I know nothing personally of his family but i take it you Are his son. Of him i knew nothing except what i read in his paper and there was no week when i did not catch a glimpse of the editor that made me Admire him As a Man. Bitter and almost matchless in sarcasm i believe Only enemies of truth and Justice Bear soars of his making. When there threatened to be a controversy Between Brethren he out it Short if hard feelings were Likely to be aroused and in words delicately spoken Wise and Friendly. At such times the kindness of his nature revealed itself. Moro than once i took my pen to answer something he had written but though i Felt no bitterness i could not Muster courage to even show my disagreement. I Felt his kindness too much for that. He impressed me As a thoroughly honest Man full to the brim with moral courage and beloved the most by those who knew him Best. I acknowledge with glad Omi that he has instructed and influenced me. I 3i continuing the ironclad. I wish i lived nearer and i would gladly offer my services Gratis Type setting or editing if they were needed. I suy this with some fear for older readers of the ironclad have mentioned in their communications things which have made me believe your family is abundantly supplied with brains and when i say editing i mean it in a very Humble sense. Ten years of newspaper work have exalted my opinions of other people s abilities. I know not where i can serve you but i would that i did. I have stood Over the grave of one i idolized and am now practically alone in the world but i assure you my Friend that terrible As such calamities As yours Are it is the living deaths which Are the worst. To see love grow cold and finally awake to the realization that it is dead to you forever this is the hardest of All to Bear. I have experienced both and i never again shall be the same Man i was. With you love More precious than the sight of a face still lives and will live undisturbed to the last. May the chords of affection grow tighter around the remaining members of your family and May you reap both profit and distinction in the Field where your father exhibited such signal ability. My hand is in yours for any service i can Render and my sympathy goes with you in every hour of your toil. Sincerely your Friend j. W. Fitch. The Only Comfort or. Perkins can offer. Mrs. J. B. Monroe and children dear friends a for ten Days i have been from Home returning two hours ago the sad news of the doctor s death came tenderly to me from the subdued voice of my Good wife then the ironclad in its draped columns. Having thoroughly studied Hygiene with drs. Jennings and troll visited Many Hygiene Antidrug sanitarium and been with Many invalids and received a letter from the doctor regarding his poor health a year ago and missing his pen from the ironclad i have expected his decease though not so suddenly. None More than i can regret it nor yet submit to the loss More quietly. My Mother was of the Gilpen Penn Stock of quakers without ceremony or Parade. This manner of life sanctioned by reason i try to live. The Only Comfort i can offer Yon is that nature created your husband and father and conducted him through a Long useful Noble life and nature has ended it. The inheritance he has left you and his thousand friends is Richer than the Gold left by the millionaires of the world. His life must be written by the Ablest pen you can select. Bryant my favorite poet delivering As i did the address at the burial of his Mother has Well said Quot like one who hraw<4 the drapery of his Couch about him and lies Down to pleasant Goldsmith writes Quot death when unmasked shows us a Friendly face and is a terror Only at a Well has the close of or. Monroe s life fulfilled these sentences. Thankful that i am Able to Send the balance on my snid Cristion and have been Able to help on the cause of truth through the columns of the ironclad and for the belief that we As survivors can Quot never give up the ship Quot i need not assure you that in pure health i will for you and All do what i can. Jacksonville fla., nov. 20, 1891. W. Perkins. Quot the Public schools Are the nurseries of vice. They Are godless schools and they who Send their children to them cannot expect the mercy of Ood. They ought not to expect the sacraments of the Church in their dying moments. I Hope you and i will live to see the Day when it will be understood that parents who commit this great sin will be re fused the sacraments of the Church. What let them die without the sacraments of the Church Yon will ask. Yes. I say so i would As soon administer the sacraments to a dog As to such Walker. Another week and probably not another Day and was not at All surprised when i Learned through the last number of the paper of his sudden death. To me his death is a personal affliction. I knew him from my earliest youth. For More than thirty five years i have been a Reader of his newspaper productions. I read the Rockford Herald the Seymour times with its changes and the ironclad age. The first newspaper i even read a line in was the Rockford Herald and it was about if not the first number of that paper in the year 1855, when i was about eight years old. I read a love Story called Louise locket. This Story was continued through several numbers of the paper and i read them All and thought i had performed a great literary feat. I became greatly attached to the paper which was always a weekly visitor at my father s Honse and when i arrived at Man s estate i became a constant subscriber and Reader of it through All of its mutations. My personal relations to or. Monroe were of the kind Liest sort. His Many acts of Friendship toward me when a poor and struggling youth can never be forgotten. Nor was i alone the recipient of his kindness he took an interest in Young men and Many is the one whom he has cheered and encouraged when the world looked dark and doubt and despair hovered near. Though rejecting All conventional religions he was himself deeply religions in the sense in which men Are so by nature. He was a priest of nature. He Felt Akin to All life and he loved sympathized with and pitied All living things. His heart went out toward the dumb animals and toward the feathered songsters of the upper deep As a amp la As to every poor mortal who was weary and heavy Laden. The old the decrepit the bereaved the oppressed the forgotten helpless infants wronged betrayed and outraged women and them that were scoffed at and spurned by the world were the objects of his unfailing solicitude and sympathy. While battling All his life with the selfishness of pretentious religions and the inhumanity and cruelty of the superstitions they were striving to perpetuate yet it is doubtful if any Man of his generation came nearer following in the footsteps of him whom the churches profess to adore. He fed the hungry clothed the naked sheltered the homeless ministered unto the afflicted and fought with the heroism of a spartacus for All who were oppressed. He was one of the Foremost champions of personal Liberty of the age in which he lived. He was the Friend and Well Wisher of every Man on Earth who had no malice or deceit in his heart but to those who had he was a Savage and relentless foe. He yearned for peace and Justice and Harmony among men. If he could have done so he would have banished cruelty from the world. His penetrating and Quick intelligence his intuitive discrimination Between right and wrong his unswerving sincerity and Candor made him a terror to every form of fraud and imposture. He punctured humbugs and exposed Shams with an unsparing rigor which often brought Down upon him the enmity of hypocrites but Bis sturdy Battle waged through Bis whole life for truth honesty toleration Justice and mercy won for him in the end the respect of those who had been his enemies. He lived to see his cause in the ascendant. When he espoused it its votaries were few. Liberalism and agnosticism now marshal a mighty boat they Are now recognized As among the great Powers of the Earth they have been granted Bellig rant rights and in the great Battle of the future they will meet their opponents on equal terms. The Brave humanitarian whose life work has just ended was one of a Galaxy of Choice and unconquerable spirits who scorn big the caresses of the great the allurements of Power and the comforts of conventionality fought the Une Quai Battle of disorganized humanity against the organized world. He fought the Good fight he kept the Faith. Loving hands have Laid him Down to his last deep sleep in the Friendly soil of Indiana and if to sleep then to sleep but if to awake then with Joy to arise and Greet the Light of the perfect Day.
