A aontharn man and a conueit ol

: in unequal flght for the accepunce of
the Inevitable, writes Colonel Henry Wat
tenon In the November "Century," de-
cubing the erenU that 14 to the nomlna-
ties of Horace Greeley for president In
XST2. , I had behind me . the intelligence
i of the confederate ffoldiera almost to a
man. They, at lwmt. .r tired of
i futile fighting, and to tbem the war was
over. But there was an element, ea
i pecially lu Kentucky, which wanted to
fight when It wag much too late. The
leaders of thlt belated element were In
complete control of the political ma
"ichlnwy of the lat. Tliey regarded
me as an Impudent upeUrt. since I had
come to Kentucky from Tennessee as
little better than a carpet-bagger, and
j had done their uttermost to put me down
I nd drive me out. . ' .
j It asver crossed my fancy that I oould
j fall. ,Yet 1 was not whoUy blind to con
, sequences and the admonitions of pru
I dence, and when the call for a liberal
j republican convention appeared, I real-
ixed that, interested as 1 was in what
j mlgrht come of it. If I expected to remain
a .democrat In a democrat community,
and to Influence and lead a democrat!')
following, I must proceed mith caution.
A livelier and more variegated omlnum
gatherum ivas never sssembled. They
bad already began to pour In when I
j arrived. There were long-haired and
spe-ctifled doctrinaires from New Eng
; 'and. and short-lialred and blatant emla
iarit ironi New York, mostly,' s It
turned out, friends , cf Horace Greeley.
There were brisk westerners from Chi
cago and tit Louis. If Whltelaw Reid,
who had come as GreJey's personal rep
reaentatlve, had his retinue, so had Hor
ace Whits and Carl Bchurs.
A Joaraalistlo Fomblae. ,
Bowles and Halstead met me at the
station and we drove to the St. Nicholas
hotel, Where Schurs and White were
awaiting us. Then and there was or
gaolsed fellowship which in the succeed
ing campaign cut a considerable figure
and went by the name of the Quad
rilateral. Wa resolved to limit the presidential
nomination of the convention to Charles
Francis Adams, Bowles' candidate, and
Lyman Trumbull, . White's candidate,
omitting altogether, because of spec f la
reasons urged by White,' the candidacy
of B. Grats Brown, who, because of his
Kentucky connections, had better served
my purpose. The very next day the se
cret was abroad, and Whltelaw Reid
came to me to ask why, in a newspaper
combine of this sort, the New York
Tribune had been left out.
To my mind It seemed preposterous
that It had been, or should be, and I
stated as much to my new colleagues.
They Sffered objection which to me ap
peared perverse. If not childish. To be
gin with, they did not like Reid He
was not a principal, like the rest of us,
but a subordinate. . Greeley was this,
that and the other; he could never be
relied upon in any coherent, practical
plan of campaign; to talk about him as
a candidate was ridiculous.
I listened rather impatiently, and
finally I said: "Now, gentlemen, in this
movement we shall need the New York
Tribune. It we admit Reid we clinch It
You will all agree that Greeley has no
chance of a nomination, and so, by tak
ing him in, we both eat our cake and
have it" On this view of the case Reid
was" invited to Join us, and that very
night he sat with us at the St. Nicholas,
where from night to night until the end
we convened and went over the perform
ances and developments of the day and
concerted plans for the morrow.

In those days It being the business of
my life to turn day into night and night
Into day, U was not my habit to go to
bed much before the presses began to
thunder below. The night before the
convention proved no exception. Before
turning In, I glanced at the early edition
of the "Commercial" to see that some
thing I was too tired to decipher pre
cisely j what had happened. It was. In
point tot fact, the arrival about midnight
of General Frank P. Blair and Governor
B. Grats Brown of Missouri I had In
my possession , documents which would
have Induced at least one of them to
pause before making himself too con.
spicuous. The Quadrilateral, excepting
Reid, knew this. We had separated
upon the adjournment of the convention.
I, being, across the river in Covington,
their search for me was unavailing.
They were in despair. When, having
had a few hours of rest, I reached the
convention hall toward noon. It was 'too
The result was that Greeley was nomi
nated amid a whirl enthusiasm, his
workers, with Whltelaw Reid at their
head, having maintained an admirable
and effective organisation, and being j
thoroughly prepared to take advantage j
of the opportune moment. It was the i
logic of the event that B. Grats Brown
should be placed on the ticket with him
The Quadrilateral was "nowhere." It
was done for. The impossible had corns
to. pass. "
Urreley'a Melancholy t'ate.
Horace Greeley was a queer old man,
a yvery medley of contradictions, shrewd
and simple, credulous and penetrating,
a master penman ,of the. schools of Swift
and Cobbett, even in his odd, picturesque
personality . whimsically attractive and,
as Seward learned to his cost, a man to
be reckoned with where he chose to put
his powers forth.
If ever a man needed a strong friendly
hand and heart to lean upon be did dur
ing those dark days the end In darkest
night nearer than anyone could divine.
He showed stronger mettle than had been
allowed him; bore a manlier part than
was commonly ascribed to his slovenly,
slipshod habiliments and his aspect in
which benigancy and vacillation seemed
to struggle for the ascendency. Abroad,'
the elements conspired against him. At
home his wife lay 111, as it proved, unto
death. The good gray head he still car
ried like a hero, but the worn and tendct
heart was beginning to break.
Happily th end came quickly. Over
whelming defeat was followed by over
whelming affliction. He never qulttei

The death of Greeley fell upon t'u
country with a sudden shock. It a rouse J
