Indianapolis Press (Newspaper) - March 14, 1901, Indianapolis, Indiana The Indianapolis press think sat March 14, 1901.Benjamin Harrison s ust speech at annual Charity meeting in the work the Charity organization society Indianapolis no Man took More interest than Benjamin Harrison. His address at the annual meeting at English s opera House december 2 last year contains Many Beautiful things and is Well Worth republishing in the review his life and deeds. He spoke in the following words that occasion quot i have had a very Long association. If not an Active one with these Charity organizations and my interest in them has been increasing. These annual meetings i think Are full interest and for a Long time they have been typical our Indianapolis life. I Hope they May continue to be so and desire to express my personal gratification at the presence ii Many people Here to listen to what we hive to say. In behalf the work being a Lone by this group societies i fancy that in this year when we Are saying so much about Prosperity that i do not Spiik to any one Here tonight who has iii tick rated in this pros Verity who does n i Leel the obligation to bestow some think Ilion those who Are in distress and need. Would not like to think any my allow Cut Lens As not having it in tii Cir Virts to do something for the Disabb. I Piid unfortunate our City. Giving wisely. Quot we rejoice in our Beautiful Monument we rejoice in our Beautiful City but my friends to ought not to forget that the greatest thing that can be said about any City is that its people Are full Good works that they take care the unfortunate that riot a limited few but the masses the people have an interest in these things. Now As you All intend to give something to the Good work the Only question will you give it wisely unwisely Avul you give a reluctant half Dollar into Ilic hands some woman Man begging about the streets who May to utterly unworthy help will you bestow your gifts in such a Way that they will reach the needs the worthy poor the City now we have in the s group societies All the agencies that Are needed to care for those who Are in distress want. We have a corps workers who look into these cases and look into them i believe not simply from the standpoint social science but with a Christian heart and who sympathize with those who Are in need. They Endeavor to limit the debilitating effect giving by finding if there May be some employment by which these persons May earn their own living. Kindergarten work. Quot in the kindergarten association the City we have a work for the poor children the City that is barely struggling along. The Good women who manage it Are resorting to All sorts devices fairs bazaars and every Means that Good women can devised to bring into the Treasury enough Money to support their work. I think it is a shame that any Community should place upon these Good women the Burden raising this Money. It should be enough that they give their time and their sympathy and their Good judgment to this work. They ought not to be obliged to carry the financial Burden it. What More attractive work can we find than that which they Are doing gathering in these Little ones who come out poor Homes where there is nothing Bright attractive they put songs their has and cheer into their hearts and if any them Are that sort that our pessimistic poet says Are like to become like the going through the world with downcast Heads they teach them to lift up their eyes and in the coming years though they May go Home weary from work they will have eyes that will look up toward the stars and see the beauties the world. They Are giving them something to make Iceni look up something to kindle the imagination and to prevent them from looking at life As an altogether Dull and somber pen picture the sex president an imposing example countenance veiled his thought Flis last speech. Gen. Harrison s Toast at the Columbia club s banquet opening the new club House. Gen. Harrison s last Public speech was iat the Columbia club banquet opening the new club House january 1. His Toast was quot Hail his speech was As follows quot Joiy Toast has great scope i do not think anything that May it without glaring inappropriateness be connected with it. A late speaker should always choose such a Toast. Where the antecedent orators Are addicted to ranging it is the Only Way to save an untrodden Fence Corner with a few clumps Bunch a dry but nutritious. 1 do not speak Flowers for 1 foresaw that there would not be enough left for me to make a boutonniere a after our senators and grif Fluhs had been heard quot Columbia should have been the name the Western hemisphere the Republican half the world the hemisphere without a King Oil the ground the reserved world where god sent the trodden spirits men to be revived to find where All things were primitive Man s primitive rights. How the american grew. Quot Royal prerogatives Are plants that require a walled Garden and to be defended from the wild free growths that crowd a and close upon them. Pomp and laced garments Are in the Brush linger and hardship Are commoners. The Man in front is the captains the Royal commit to the contrary notwithstanding. The platoon and Volley tiring by the word would not do the open order one to a tree firing at his own will and at a particular Savage was better. Out this and like Calls to do things upon his own initiative the free american was born. He thought he might get along with Kings and Imperial parliaments if they were benevolent and did and allowed what he wished but they were forever doing their own pleasure As the Way always is. And so he found it necessary first to remonstrate and then to resist. Now a remonstrance implies an argument. The acts com Iulai Icid must be shown to have infringed a right. At he talked English rights but it was not Long until he began to talk about human rights. The =h parliament was under Salt ish Law Uirt Vituld repeal the Magna Charta. Tie tin the colonial Charters surely Ali v were irrevocable Grants a but the courts held otherwise. A hat and parliaments had Given they could take away. And so our Fath were driven to claim a divine endowment and to allow it to All men since it cd bad made All one blood. To write the argument otherwise was to divest it its major premise. Tie grand conclusion no King parliament can rightfully take god s gift Liberty from any Man was thus riveted to the eternal throne itself. We made for our convenience an exception in the Case the Black Man but god erased it with a sponge dipped in the White Man s blood. Quot this divine Law individual Liberty allows the restraints that Are necessary for the general Good but it does not allow either a Man a civil Community to exploit for selfish gain another Man another Community.

Quot the so called Anglo Saxon and especially the american Branch that great family should reverently and humbly thank god for the pre eminent Power and a influence he has Given to it for organized Freedom and for astounding wealth.

Quot i estimate the gift the governing faculty to be god s greatest gift to the Langlo Saxon and in the Constitution the United states with its division Powers its limitations upon the governing departments and its Sublime reservations in the interests individual Liberty i see the highest achievement that most rare faculty.

The tune quot Hail quot the tune Hail Columbia has for me some pleasant associations. Before we started the Atlanta Campaign it was proclaimed in order from division Headquarters that the first Strain Hail Columbia should be the Callol the brigade. And so it became with falling tents and wet and weary marches. When after much marching and some fighting we. Spread the i cant Canvas allowed us had rinsed our Only our extra Shin and Hung it out. With our wet blankets to dry had found the to it adaptable con caves a bed poles had received the infrequent mail from the hands our Laith tui chaplain and were deep in the Long distance newspaper account if what we had done and were bout to do from some near Hilltop the first Strain Hall Columbia rang out and the Temi tation to another spelling the first word at least to shorten the sound the a was irresistible. 1"he general came next and after an in Ier al Long enough for the r a Umo lion the wet and the Roll iii the blankets Assembly and Quickl afterwards to the quot a hc2i we were in Hue a Hail Columbia had done its dread i Ful work Demoli hed a Camp and be it Terud among its unsightly debris the a broken commandment.

Quot and now Hail to the Columbia club an association Loyal Liberal minded republicans organized not to control primaries to Divide the spoils office but to maintain the Ascendancy Republican principles and to promote friendliness and Good will among its members. I recall the occasion and the circumstances your organization and the ardent with which you every occasion rendered Honor and service to me As the parly s candidate and As quot our neighbor. These things abide in my memory they Are stored where no Vicissitudes life can them. But Thev Are More than pleasant reminiscences they Are Bonds Friendship and inspiration to duty. Quot the decapitation the sex president when the oath office has been administered to his successor would greatly vilify a somewhat tiresome ceremonial. And we May some time solve the news paper problem what to do with our sex presidents in that conclusive Way. Until then i Lope an sex president May be permitted to live somewhere Midway Between the House the gossip and the crypt the Mummy. He will know perhaps in an Especial Way How to show the highest Honor to the presidential office and the most courteous deference to the president. Upon great questions however a especially upon it questions constitutional Law you must give an sex president his Freedom the axe and it is too late to give me the a. Quot any democratic friends who Mav share your hospitality tonight will Pardon me for saying to any them who have cast beguiling looks toward me that the democratic party has never been less attractive than now. No plan reorganization suggests itself to me except that suggested by a waggish lieutenant my regiment to a Captain whose platoons were inverted. He said Captain if i were in your place 1 would break ranks and have the orderly Call the Roll perhaps even this hopeful program May fail for an inability to agree As to the Roll and As to the orderly. Quot gentlemen the Columbia club i congratulate you Xton the opening this magnificent club House and thank Vou with a full heart for your Many acts Benjamin is. Benjamin. Gen. Benjamin Harrison was a Man a Little below the Ordinary stature. The aspect shortness was increased by the general s Stout Ness which. In latter years became More and More apparent. In spite the fact that he was almost seventy years age and had held the highest and most responsible office within the gift the american people the general carried his age Well. His step was firm and Quick though his Pace As he walked about the streets was slow and dignified. In fact it was the sex president s dignified bearing that was considered the most prominent personal characteristic the Man. This was heightened by the pallor his countenance which suggested the deep and tireless student and Learned a Holar. In keeping with this conspicuous a personality was the dress worn by the sex i los Dent from Day to Day and year to year k varied but slightly. The general usually garbed himself in a Black Cuc Avay coat with trousers a modest pattern. He covered his head usually with a Black Derby occasionally wearing the High silk hat that increased the dignity and Gravity. It was said Gen. Harrison that he was a cold and Distant Man who held himself aloof from the people at Large. This idea perhaps had its origin in the sex president s bearing rather than being due to the Man s character. He held his shoulders Back and his head High though the Beard worn by the general and the shortness the neck made it seem usual y that his Chin was pressed Forward his breast. Oftentimes when the sex president appeared upon the streets he carried an umbrella Seldom a Cane. His manner War. Not that a Man buried in deep contemplation meditation he was observant no event occurring in his Vicinity escaping his notice. For All that him and addressed him whether he knew the speaker not the general had a pleasant and Friendly nod. It was not often that he spoke to the passerby. Perhaps the most striking feature his face was the Eye. It was Blue Sharp and penetrating but without great expression. In fact the general s entire countenance veiled his thought. His eyes showed nothing the thought in his mind his features displayed less. Though the sex president was considered an aged Man he was Strong and unusually vigorous and healthy. The pallor his countenance led oftentimes to the belief that the sex president was frequently 111. Nothing however could have been further from the truth. Having lived an exemplary life maintained regular habits and the utmost cleanliness the general was Seldom 111. His clothes were spotless and his Beard Snow White smooth Well combed and stainless. His hair was never disordered. Altogether he was a Man orderly and cleanly not tolerating Dos order in others nor Able to excuse uncleanliness. While Gen. Harrison was ver clean in All his personal habits he not Only smoked occasionally but was not averse to consoling himself with a Chew tobacco. In later years he diminished his use tobacco very much. However he i kept his Teeth very White and it was his invariable habit leaving his meals to retire at once to iii room and scrub his Teeth. Gen. Hilr Ristis s wealth today it was estimated Between $300,000 and $400,000, largely in personal property. Harrison won Caroline Scott and Jenkins became an exile. Five months ago in a Little Wayside inn one the roads leading out from Redding cal., was found the body Benjamin Jenkins. His death recalled a Romance that took place in the Little College town Oxford o., in which Benjamin Harrison Benjamin Jenkins and Caroline Scott were the inn Cirals. It happened in their College Days at Miami. Caroline Scott was the daughter president Scott the Oxford female College. He was a strict . And his daughter shared his Vale. Attending Miami College was Benjamin Jenkins a stanch Democrat. Jenkins was dared to pay his respects to miss. Scott. Nothing daunted he tried and lost his heart to the Young woman in the trial. Mass Scott respected Jenkins though she hated his political views. Soon after Jenkins unsuccessful suit for the hand miss Scott Benjamin Harrison entered Miami. He met miss Scott and it was not Long before they were engaged. Soon after his graduation . Harrison wedded miss Scott. Jenkins graduated from Miami in the Early fifties and left College a broken hearted Man. He went to the Gold Fields California and spent the rest his life in seeking excitement and sur cease from the sorrow a disappointed love that seemed Ever with him. Burglary at his Home recalled. The burglar izing the Harrison Home during Gen. Harrison s last Campaign for the presidency has always been veiled in mystery although the police believe the burglars were captured and sentenced for a quot Job quot at Terre haute shortly after the burglary was committed. Three porch climbers entered the Harrison Home one night and carried away silverware and trinkets valued at several Hundred dollars. The police department worked until singly the Case for weeks but were left absolutely without a Clew. Just at a time when All Hope recovering the stolen property had been abandoned a Box air led at the Harrison Home from cd Cako. The Box contained the stolen silverware and trinkets. No information was give Riv As to Why the properly was returned. \ in the Box was a number Small trial ets that had not been missed from the ouse. Estimates As to Gen. Harrison s wealth were placed Ai higher figures today by iii friends than those Given yesterday. A Man who is quite Well acquainted with his financial affairs said today that his wealth would amount to Between $300,000 and $400,000. Or. Harrison owned a Large amount property. Consisting Railroad stocks and Bonds. Ills investments in these securities were made through new York houses and Little is known con cei ning their description amount Here. He Stock in the Belt Railroad the Union Trust company and the Law building. He also died a building at the purr Thweat Corner the Alley Penn sol Ania Streeet Between Washington and Market streets. He also owned prone Rev South Pennsylvania Street South Maryland Street. He also owned the building once occupied by Clemens Vonnegut Kast Washington Street be Vond Alabama. This last property he a Irineu Only recently. A year ago he paid taxes property held Here amounting to $174,615. When. Tien. Harrison was in the uni Tell states Senate he took out a policy in the new York life insurance company for $li-,000. In when he was a Candi Date for president he took a policy in the equitable life insurance company for four Vears ago he was carry ing $30.000, and it is said that he told the men that discussed insurance with him at that time that he had enough. When a quot went to Europe to argue the venezuelan Case it was reported that he took out a policy in new York for .$100.000, but tins report was not Given credence by insurance men in Indianapolis a vrho think that if he took additional insurance Over and it Bove the $30,000, it was an Accident policy to cover his trip abroad. How his Fortune has grown. The tax duplicate shows that in 1s03 Gen. Harrison s property was valued at $91,.s0 i in Idoo his personal property alone was valued at More than this. In 1s93 his personal property was valued at $37,700. The books a he township assessor s office for ipod show that he was assessed for st74,6l5. Of this sum was per Sonal. The two lots which his Home is situated Are valued at $17,640. The House and other improvements Are valued at $�1,175.

Gen. Harrison owned jointly with mis. A. L. Mason the building and lot Between Knight amp Jillson s and Parrott a i Taggart s. Valued at s j i.500. Since the As-.--iment made in i Jou Gen. Harrison paid $2i ,0i l for the building East Washington Street formerly occupied by the Vonnegut hardware company. His personal return. Gen.

Quot during my Brief conversation with . Blaine quot said . A ingate quot he asked me whether Montgomery county was a Republican democratic county. I told him that he had carried the sixty three votes when he was a candidate tour years before and at that time the state had gone 6,000 democratic.

John Wingate is authority for a statement concerning the origin the slogan 18s8, quot Grandfather s he told the Story to an Indianapolis newspaper re Ijo ter while in a reminiscent mood last july. He was the father the slogan himself. It came about at Crawfordsville at a time when James g. Blaine spoke. Here is How . Wingate told the Story quot it happened this Way my Mother dug from out the recesses an old closet a hat that had been worn by my Grandfather the occasion the great Harrison meeting which was held the old Battle ground Lafayette in 1840. When Blaine appeared the platform the car that Day in 1888 i a who had donned the old hat More As a joke than anything else Drew near the Steps the car in order that i might hear what he had to say. A few minutes later i was introduced to . Blaine and Wilile we were discussing the local political situation he asked me about the hat that 1 was wearing. I told him that my Grandfather had worn it to the big Harrison meeting in 1840, and that As Harrison s grandson was now a candidate it was quite appropriate that a grandson one his Grandfather a most enthusiastic constituents should Wear the same hat. After a few words More with me . Blaine turned to the crowd and began speaking but the cheering grew so loud and prolonged that it was impossible for him to make himself heard. It was at this moment that be turned to where i was standing and taking the hat from my head held it up before the crowd. I remember the exact words he used. Waiting until he had toe it intent lon the crowd he said this Nat helped to make one president and it will help to make another one. Three cheers for the hat the cheers were Given with a will and that night when the wires a a Ratill an account it the meeting to All the pm Perm 1q the country Lierow amp a cons Dmiam sinus How the general shrewdly handled a Berlin reporter. During Gen Harrison s trip to Europe in the fall 1899 he spent a Brief time at the German capital and an amusing Story came Over at the time As the result a reporter to it be Berliner tage Blatt trying to interview the sex president. The reporter did not get a very satisfactory interview but he made a Good Story out his trip. The interviewer was deeply impressed with Gen. Harrison s High position and distinguished record before he started his errand and gives full expression to his misgivings As to his reception by such a personage. Quot perhaps it would be possible to have a talk with him As to a hat he thinks Germany that he is for the first time As to affairs in frano.-, that he has just left after a Long visit As to England and the Transvaal As to the Dewey excitement As to the insurance commission As to a there Are so Many things it would be interesting to find views about quot but it is first to be found out whether to eminent a Man can be seen and whether he will have the kindness to communicate his opinions about All that one would like to ask him. That in t always so easy As you might think. The reporter went to Gen. Harrison s hotel Early ii the morning and asked he clerk whether and if so How when ind where the distinguish eur guest Caulfi be seen. At first he was told that Gen. Harrl Rio ii would give no interview. But patience Anc perseverance accomplish All things Liy the kindness the private Secretary the interviewer gained the Promise a Short interview Only the general would not discuss politics any kind. Quot not even with journalists quot asks this innocent German interviewer. The Secretary twists his Mustache to hide a Grin at the naivete the question. Quot especially not with journalists. What would you like to learn from him quot quot in the first place i d like to see him if i he could and did and gives a flattering description the -pro.�i-Dent s agreeable reception him his Short but courteous greeting his firm grass the hand. The journalist begins to ask about France and Dreyfus. The Gene al and his Secretary look at each Osiier the general regretfully and courteously his Secretary mirrors the smile. Then the same thing with England and the general s Mission to Berlin whatever it might be. Quot May i ask How Long you intend to stay quot five Days then general Harrison goes to there it is All Over. Political questions were barred and the interviewer confides regretfully to his readers that since last night the City s guest could hardly have formed an answer to the question How he liked berlins apparently he did not ask the questions so they exchanged Adieu. His Little daughter was playing the threshold the next room. Quot it was a pleasant sight to see the elderly fresh energetic Man with the Sharp eyes who so decisively refused to discuss politics and with him the pretty child who did not even yet know there was such a thing As hateful politics and that papa was so distinguished a and that is the Story a column interview with Gen. Harrison in the Berliner tage Blatt. Ballade Benjamin Harrison. For the Indianapolis press. In martial splendor unsurpassed. In statesmanship supremely blessed.
