But when w read in th records of those

of Lincoln," and Henry D. Estabrook, form

Mr. Boutwell aald in part:
As exponents of the purest and wisest
form of liberty, we may associate three
names Thomas Jefferson, Louis Kossuth
and Abraham Lincoln.
The barbarism of the world hna been
largely due to the denial of equality among
men; wherever there is an Irresponsible
ruling class there will be a degradeO servile
class, and between them every form of
Thomas Jefferson announced the decline
of equality of human rights. Kossuth de
clared that liberty should be a universal
fiosseaslon. Lincoln approached a practical
lluatratlon of these truth when ne said:
"I believe that this nation cannot endure
half alave and half free."
Trnst Evils Will Die.
In rospondlng to tho toast of "Lincoln,"
Mr. Young said In part:
The country Is In no more danger today
from a combination of riches than It was
from a combination of poverty lees than
seven years ago. The country has out
lived the marching armies of discontent
under Coxey and Kelly, and It will cer
tainly outlive the dangera Incident to
James J. Hill and J. Plerpont Morgan.
The life of Lincoln from IsPS to 11(66 cov
ered the greatest events in the formative
period of the republic. The civil war did
more for America than all the years of
the republic had done before. It destroyed
contentions over trifles snd centered tha
purposes of the people on national life. It
was the beginning of American greatness.
Someone has said of the civil war: "it
crowded four centuries of progress into
four years of war."
Lincoln was too great for the small pur
poses Immediately following the war, ss
he had been too great for some of the
small dispute leading up to it. When he
died at the hands of an assassin his work
waa alreadv rhlrty-flve year ahead of

efforts on the part of the northern states
t3 resist the extension of slavery. The
democratic national convention, which con
vened at Cincinnati In 1856. reaffirmed in
its platform the Kentucky resolutions, ami
made them part of Its creed. It was on
this platform that James Buchanan was
elected president. Four years later. In May,
!00, the republican national convention met
at Chicago and nominated Abraham IJ11
coln for the presidency. He was elected on
a platform containing these words: ' The
federal constitution, the rights of the
states, and the union of states must and

No political party had ever"hefore under
taken so momentous a rsk. nen l.nicuin
was Inaugurated he was beset on every
hand with the grav-est perils, but in his
Inaugural address he frankly stated his
purpose to carry out the policy of his party
to preserve the union of states, saying:
"I shall take care, as the constitution
itself expressly enjoins upon me, that the
laws of the union be faithfully executed in
all the states."
Cost la Blood and Treasare.
No purpose of a ruler was ever before
carried out at such an txpenee of blood and
treasure as this purpose of President Lin
coln. When he took his seat war was in
evitable, though he expressed the hupe
that it might be av-rrted. He declared
without equivocation -hat there would be
no war t.nlcts 11 was forced upon the na
tion by the defiance of federal authority;
but the south had already begun prepn.a
tions for a conflict. Fort Sumter was fired
upon, mpst of the southern states seceded
In rapid succession, and the southern con
federacy was formed, with Its capltol at
Richmond. When the war began Lincoln
had no thought of freeing the alaves or of
depriving the southern people of their
ilghta or property. The one consuming
purpose of his administration was to en
force the laws of the United States In
very part of the union, and so when e
made his first call for 75,000 troops it was,
as said In the call Itself, "'o repossess the
infis. pln.w and property which has been
seized from the union."
Four awful years of blood and carnage
ensued before hie armies repossessed the
forts, places and property which had been
seized from the union, and before he cou'.d
enforce the federal authority In the states
which had seceded; but the union victory

the surrender of I-ee at Appomattox came
As soon as IJtifuln h'ard of the evacua
tion of Richmond he hastened to that city,
realizing that trie war waa almost ended.
One of the purposes of this visit, as shown
by a memorsndum which he left behind,
was to require, bs a condition of peace,
th restoration "f fe Wral authority through
out all the states and the disbanding of all
hcetilr forces. It was also his intention,
in the event of peace, to ameliorate, as far
as possible, the afflictions of those who had
resisted his authority, and to consider at
the earliest possible moment all proposi
tions to ristore amicable relations between
the north and -the south. A few days after
h left Richmond and four days before he
was struck down by an assassin. Apru 11.
165. he delivered an address in Washington
and spoke of the status of the confederate
states and their relation to the union, say
ing: States Par pose Toward Booth.
"Finding themselves safely at home. It
would be utterly Immaterial whether they

man under the flag must be equal before
