Perry Heath's htory about MoKinloy

from his position as secretary of the

SCOTT & BOWNE,
409 Pearl St., N. Y.
savo General Gordon, has just died at
his old homo at Gaiusvillo, Gn., at tho
advancod ago of 84 years Ho was one
of tho ablest olllcors dovolopod by tho
olvil war, ranking on tho coufodorato
sldo fully up to tho high standard of
Leo, Joseph E Johnston and Stouowall
Jackson Ho was among tho ninny
cool bonded mon of tho south who
wont reluctantly into the rebellion, but
from tho beginning till tho very end
ho held high lunk nnd was all tho time
one of tho most important notors in
tho great military drama.
Dy many tho palm of suporior gon
lous has boon awarded to Stonewall
Juckson, and that ho was a commander
of marvidous foroo and brilliancy is
conceded. Dut it Is well known to
oloso students of tho campaigns bo
tweon Wasningtou and Richmond that
when thoro was desperate lighting,
when tho i-tornest and most torrilla
tests of military virtuo woroto bo mot,
it was to Longitroet and his corps that
tho work was habitually assigned by
Leo Longstreet commanded iu no
one sorlos of movoments as spectacu
lar aud brilliant as Jackson's famous
maneuvers In the Shenandoah valley,
but for grim tenacity, for desperate
omorgonoles, for sustaluod ability
throughout the bloody length of the
greatest war in modorn times, no
general on the confederate side sur
passed Longstreet, If wo except only
Iioboit E.Leo and Joseph E.Johnston.
Longstreet has been iilamed by somo,
most severely by General Gordon, for
tardiness In tho awful churgoon Semi
nary ridgo on tho third day at Gotts
burg. That charge is now regit' dod by
military critics as a miotnke, a mlstuko
a thousand-fold more disastrous than
the famous chargo at Dtilakluva, which
was a bagatelle iu comparison aud had
no effect on tlio nlbod campaign,
wheiea-'at Gettysburg the doom of
too confederacy was bcalod when Long
stroofa column was hurled back. It
was Leo's mistake, not that of Long-
street, who protested iigiihit It and
previously udvisod the cone t thinking
movement Leo generously assumed
tho responsibility, nor did ho blame
! Longstreet for failure to obey orders,
nor is there evidence that ho did not
J movo at tlio earliest possible moment,
or that tlio rosult would hsvo been
diirereut if tlio chargo could hnvo been
tmido four or six hours soouir.
From tho hour of A npoinutox, Long
street without reservation accented
. the situation and throw all his inllu
etico ou tho sido of reconciliation.
Genorul Grant, his old f riond, when ho
came to tho presidency offered and
Longstreet accepted olllco, aud there
by for many years lost casto in tho
I General Lougsteet was a man of
high persoual character, kindly, quiet,
rosorvod, faithful to friouds, and do
' lug tho right as ho saw it. Mauy of
I his wnrmest friends wero old soldiers
' of tho Union ido who will sincerely
'rogtot his death.
Tho credibility of tho talo told by
Perry Hoath, to tho elfeot that Mo
Kinloy had cuosi n Senator, linnnu to
s iccod to tho presidency, and to d
1 Icutli so on u certain occasion, fails
In two Important points.
It has bcon shown that McKfnlcy
was not in Washington and had not
boon for many weolcs at tho time Heath
claims that tho revelation was mndo to
him at the Whlto Houso
It is not likely tlmt MoKinloy had
cliosou a successor in the sense of a
deflnito doicrmimatlon. That nould
not Imvo boon like MoKinloy
Hut there is good reason to believe
that McKiulcy's directions and admira
tion had centered upon ono man, and
that if he had been called upon to
choose a siiccostor n that time, which
was just as-ho was fairly entering up
on his econd term, ho would very
likely have oliotnti tho ablest member
of his cabinet Ellliu Root.
Thero is evidence that MoKinloy was
profoundly impressed with the great
abilities of Ellhu Soot, as President
Itoosovolt. and as all discerning mon
who hnvo o .mo into close relations
with him hnvo been, and that ho do
libera oly planned lo put the socretary
in the way of becoming better known
to tlio American people.
It is Mifo to say that MoKinloy, if
ho hud been called upon to namo his
successor fnHKT, as Hoosovolt, If lie
hail the choosing of his successor in
V.W, would Imvo named Elihu Itoot.
Football Game n Tic.
Thn Supurior Red Cloud football
game on New Year's day was about is
rough ami bloody an exhibition of tlio
game lis the most enthusiastic crunk
could wish to see. Tho Superior ag
gregation looked like giants by the
side of tlio Red Cloud boys and tlio
friends of tlio homo tnm weio greatly
discouraged by tne outlook. Superior
drew on the Kansus university, N
hrtckn university and towns along tlio
U & M. fori!" playeis, and canio lure
with tlio dt t'rnnntUion to win. The
Red Cloud bots put up a stiff git tne,
however, and at tlio critical time
succeeded in outgonoralllng their
opponent. Red Cloud kicked (iff iu
the first bait, and tlio game whs close
nnd exciting from that timo on. Tin
Superior boys, owing to their weight,
depomlod mainly on lino bucking, but
were unable to ndvanco tho ball for
uiiiterinl gains. Whon H"d Cloud flu
ally get the ball it was rapidly ndvnuc
od in Superior territory, whoro it re
mained during the greator part of the
llru half, and when time for tho lirst
half was called the ball was nonr the
center of the Held.
In the second half Supoiior sturted
iu with a tierce ntta:k on the line, nnd
xtendily Htlvanred the bill to Red
C ourt's five yard tine, where the most
exciting play of the game was nisde!
Nicol wont thro'igh the center and it
lnokod like a touchdown, but Drown
and Jeffries tnckled and Nicol fumbled
tlio bnll. Joffrio got it, and a wrangle
ensued, Superior claiming thnt Jeffries
hnd knocked the bill from NicolV
hands. Thoro was but ten minutes in
which to tlnUh iho game, and tho re
feree and umpire being unnhfa to agree,
the players wore finally given two
minutes in which to settle the dispute.
Neither sido would give in and the
gime endod shortly afterward with tlo
ball in R"d Cloud's pessossion on its.
own flvr-yard lino. The tenuis lined
up as follows.
