Inauguration of Great Leader
and Scene In Washington
at the Time.
FRANKFORT, K. Nov. 8-Her.ry
Wattorson, editor of the Louisville
Courier-Journal, delivered an address
her today on Abraham Uncoln on the
occasion of tho unveiling' of the Lincoln
Memorial. Mr. Watterson's oration was
devoted mainly to the "personality, the
origin and the spiritual life and char
acter" of Abraham Lincoln. He gave
a minute account of the Lincoln and
Hanks family derived from documentary
evidence; disproved the falsehoods touoh
lng Lincoln's birth and traced his noble
qualities of head and heart to his
mother. In concluding this passage lie
'Tomorrow there will assemble In a
little clearing of the wlldwood of Ken
tucky a goodly company. It will cm
brace the greatest and the best of our
time and land. The president and the
chief Justice and the rest will gather
about a lowly cabin, whose unhewn logs
like the serried battlements of Elslnore
puve prelude to the swelling act of a
theme- yet more Imperial, to consecrate
a shrine. Of him that was born there
the final earthly word was spoken long
ago; but, Mother of God. shall that throng
pats down the hillside and away without
looking into the heaven abo.e In unutter
able love and homage with the thought of
a spirit there which knew In this world
nought of splendor and power and fame;
whose sad lot Is was to live and die In
obscurity, struggle, - almost In penury
and squalor; whose tragic fate It, was
after aho had lain half a lifetime In her
bumble, unmarked grave, to be pursued
by the deepest, darkest calumny that
can attach Itself to the name of woman;
the hapless, the fair-haired Nancy
"No falser, fouler story ever gained
currency than that which ' Impeaches
the character of the mother of Abra
hnm Lincoln.. It had never any founda
tion whatsoever. Every known fact
flatly contradicts-It. very aspect of
:. circumstantial evidence stamps It a tr-
'"""Tt was' a 'period-of heroic achievement
tempered by religious fervor.. It Was
. a pious, uoa-ieanng neignnoruood or
simple bard working men and women.
Debauchery was unknown. Double living
was Impossible. Thomas Lincoln and
Nancy Hanks, as I have shown, came
of good people. Historically, It would not
matter who were the "parents of Abra
ham Lincoln any more than It matters
that he Whom the Kngllsh monarch is
proud to call his progenitor was a bas
tard; but It offends the soul of a brave
and Just manhood, It should amuse in
tho heart of every true woman a sense
of wrong that so , much as a shadow
should rest upon the memory of the
little cabin In which Nancy Lincoln gave
to the world an Immortal son, born In
clean, unchallenged wedlock, nor thought
ot taint or shame anywhere.
" "Let no one of those that gather there
go thence without a heart salute to the
gentle spirit of Nancy Hanks Lincoln,
that maybe, somewhere beyond the stars
among the angels of the choir Invisible,
will look upon the scene, serene and safe
at last In the bosom of her Father and
Lincoln's Arrival In Washington.
Mr. Watterson told a graphlo story of
the coming of Lincoln to Washington and
Ms first Inauguration. His narrative took
the form of a personal reminiscence. "I

PHILADELPHIA, Nov. 8.-In one of
the most bitterly fought elections In the
history of Philadelphia, Rudolph Blank
ensburg. Independent republican and pop
ularly known as the "war horse of re
form," yeste.day defeated George H.
Earle, Jr., the republican organization
candidate for mayor, by the small plur
ality of 4,3lH.
The fight made by Qlankenburg was re
markable. Facing a normal republican
majority of between 75,000 to 100,000 and
a candidate backed by United States
Senator Penrose and state Senator James
P. McNlchol, the organisation leader of
this city, this advocate of clvlo right
eousness battled his way to victory
against odds which would have detered
a less determined candidate...
The significance ot the Blankenburg
landslide can be appreciated when the
total vote of 2t,224 Is taken Into .consid
eration. The closeness of the vote between Earle
and Ulankenburg was due to several
causes, the main one being the bitter
fight at the primaries between Earle and
William S. Vare, In which the former
won out by a large majajrlty. The sores
caused by this fight had not healed Judg

wards, controlled by Vare, gave to the

Steps looking toward the removal ot tho
office of stale s'lperntendent of schools
from politics were taken yesterduy by the
superintendents and principals wt'o are
here to attend the Nebraska Teachers'
association convention. it ws on a
motion niado by Buperintrmlrnt A. 11.
Waterhousa of Fremont that a cjmmlt
tee of five was appointed by the president
of the BHHOclatlon to look into the matter
of changes (hot would make the office
appointive Instead ot elective.
The matter came up following a paper
read by Superintendent A. L. Cavinexs of
Fairbury, who advocated that the Ne
biaska superintendent be appointed by a
committee of three the president of the
Board of Regents, president of the 8tate
Normal board and the governor of the
state. He also Inflated that the salary of
tho superintendent, J2.000 a year, should
be at least equal to that ot the superin
tendent ot the Omaha schools and that
of the chancellor of the university.
"Either we must not elect big men to
office or we must take the oflce out
politics," declared Mr. Cavlness, citing
the case of former Superintendent Crab
tree as an example of a big nun lost
because of Inadequate support.
Three thousand school teachers, from
every part of Nebraska and from neigh
boring Mate., and even from the west
ern, eastern, northern and southern
states, gathered In Omaha Wednesday
for tho annual convention, which con
tinues for three days.
The attendance on the first day ex
ceeded the expectations of the arrange
ments committee as well as every teacher
In the city. For a time hotels and lodg
ing houses were swamped, but one
hundred high school cadets commanded
by three women principals of Omaha
schools, stationed at all the depots, and
Information bureaus at the Young Men's
and Young Women's Christian Associa
tion buildings handled the situation well.
Before evening the work of the conven
tion was well under with all visitors
Ci,-im Rpeelal Trains.. -
Coming, on a special train over the
Burlington, 100 teachers from Llnooln and
vicinity, arrived at 8:20 Wednesday morn-
'lng, and were met at the depot by the
reception committee and a squad of High
school cadets, the latter acting as guides.
At the depot the Lincoln teachers di
vided up into parties of a dozen or fif
teen and in street cars wore whirled
away to that many of tho city schools,
they having expressed a desire to bi
present and observe Just how tho Omaha
teachers start the school day.
The Northwestern's Nebraska trains
brought in nearly 100 teachers from all
points north of here and half as mnny
more from as far west as Scrlbner, hav
ing gathered them en route. ,
The Mlfsourl Pacific and the Union
Pacific early trains had a goodly num
ber ot the educators on board, and like
those who came over the Burlington, they
were met by reception committees and
guides, and encoded to headquarters.
More than 1,000 other toachera will ar
rive before the convention closes. Kpeclul
trains and extra coaches from cities In
western parts of the state augmented
the transient population of Omaha on
Wednesday Ml at a tlino.
Prominent Kducatora Here.
The most prominent educators In the
state and some of the leading figures In
the educational field of the United States
are attending. Superintendents, principals.
grade, primary and kindergarten teachers
are meeting to plan end to propono new
methods in their work.
Among thosa who took part In the pre
liminaries Wednesday morning and In
tho attempt to organize and "get clown
to work" were W. M. Davidson. E. U.

Ail visitors wero pleased v.lth the re
ception accorded them' and the effort
made to see thai all secured lodging. Five

The method will resolve Itxaif into a
discussion of the principal problems con
fronting the educators tud.ty. Agreeing
that physical education is one of the
moit Important tilings relating to the
growth and development of youth this
phase of school life will be given special
attention. "The Physical Side of School
Life" will be the theme at all of the gen
eral sessions. Secondary problems ulso
will be ulscuxsed, but the great interest
centers In physical education and the
convention, according to the leaders of
the several divisions Is likely to ask for
the adoption of some radical change in
the methods of city and country schools
regarding the physical development of
bo) a and girls.
