I can not bring myself to believe that they will indeed pay no regard to the ancient friendship between their people and our own or to the solemn obligations which have been exchanged between them and destroy American ships and take the lives of American citizens in the wilful prosecution of the ruthless naval program they have announced their intention to adopt. Only actual overt acts on their part can make me believe it even now. "If this inveterate confidence on my part in the sobriety and prudent foresight of their purpose should unhappily prove unfounded: if American ships and American lives should in fact be sacrificed by their naval commanders in heedless contravention of the just and reasonable understandings of international law and the obvious dictates of humanity. I shall take the liberty of coming again before the Congress to ask that authority be given me to use any means that may be necessary for the protection of our seamen and our people in the prosecution of their peaceful and legitimate errands on the high seas. I can do nothing less. I take it for granted that all neutral Governments will take the same course. "We do not desire any hostile conflict with the Imperial German Government. We are the sincere friends of the German people and earnestly desire to remain at peace with the Government which speaks for them. We shall not believe that they are hostile to us unless and until we are obliged to believe it: and we purpose nothing more than the reasonable defense of the undoubted rights of our people. We wish to serve no selfish ends. We seek merely to stand true alike in thought and in action to the immemorial principles of our people which I have sought to express in my address to the Senate only two weeks ago seek merely to vindicate our right to liberty and justice and an unmolested life. These are the bases of peace, not war. God grant that we may not be challenged to defend then by acts of willful injustice on the part of the Government of Germany!" Will Address Congress Again.

Senator Simmons assured the President that Congress would move promptly whenever money is needed, and that there would be no opposition to any reasonable requests from the Government.

We believe that the best opportunities to diversify the apple farm especially where lands are high priced and where there is an overhead cost, taxes and interest on investment, of from $30 to $50 an acre is by the growing of more than one kind of fruit.

The weight of his more than eighty years was resting heavily upon his body, otherwise none to strong. But his will to do gave him an activi ty beyond his strength. Only a few hours before his death, ht sat in his chair, before the fire The end coming so swiftly was a severe shock to his devoted wife who has been ill lor several weeks and is still confined to tier bed He was the father of ten living children, all of whom have reachec or passed, maturity. Six of these, tour sons and two daughters, were here. After funeral s.ervices at the Christian church, on Wed uesday morning, they took tht body to Berea, where they hoped 10 be joined by the other children before the interment. Mr. VauWiukle, as a citizen, was an asset to any community. He was interested in every bet termeut. He was a very active man, having finished his last, et many schools in his eightieth year. Few men are closer stud ents than he was. Unlike many who pass the alloted years of man, he did not live in the past, but was keenly alive to the world of to day. As a Christian gentleman, he was at his best. Living, with him, was serving. His happiest hours were when he he was bring ing his best and placing it un selfishly on the altar of service His life was clean. The good man loved and trusted him. The bad man respeced him. His love sought "The Trail That Leads to the Hearts of Men" and hi faith found the "Paths that Leads to the City of God.'

HE LINES of thought and feeling which led to the reclamation of the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln and the peaceful scenes and unity of purpose that attend its transfer from the ownership of an association to the possession of the government of the United State contrast strangely with the passions which illumined the period in which his lot was cast, toward the close breaking into a volcano of blood and flame, his tragic death unhappily not the end; for we now know that, while he was entertaining the most benevolent intentions toward the beaten party in the strife, his taking off gave at once the signal and the pretext for letting loose upon the vanquished a swarm of evil spirits working Ills even worse than those of war itself. For at least ten years before the secession of the Southern states the two sectional extremes in and out of congress talked like madmen, the raving ranging from the abolition orator's melodramatic "My curse be upon the Constitution of these United States" to the rodomontade of the Southern senator who would not be pacified until he could "call the muster roll of his slaves beneath Bunker Hill monument." As the sectional pressure tightened in national politics before the advent of actual hostilities those conservative men who tried to avert the oncoming dash of arms were driven to the wall. Neither extreme would listen to moderate counsels. The interposition of the border states proved of doubtful restraint and was of short duration. luriug the war and after it was orer these patriotic men fared no better than the firebrands, the mass and body of the Southern people confounded with the original secessionists. Even now the distinction that once existed Is blurred, if not lost. Yet a great majority of the Southern people were devoted to the Union and at least a strong minority were opposed to slavery. No one understood this better than Abraham Lincoln. He was himself of Southern birth. He and all his tribe were Southerners. Although he left Kentucky when a child, he was an old child ; he never was very young ; nor did he go very far, growing to manhood in a Kentucky colony, for what is Illinois, what Chicago, but a Kentucky colony, swollen somewhat out of proportion? He was in no sense what we used to call "a poor white." Awkward, ungainly but aspiring, the spirit of a hero within that rugged casement ; a fine, imagination behind those heavy brows ; the courage of a lion beneath those patient, kindly aspects; and, long before he was of legal age, a leader among iumh. His first love was a Butledge; his wife was a Todd. Lincoln the Poet. We know that he was a poet, for have we not that immortal prose-poerecited at Gettysburg? We know that he was a statesman, for has not time vindicated his conclusions? But the South did not for a long time know, except sis a kind of hearsay, that he was a friend the one friend who had the power and the will to save it alike from its enemies and itself. The direst blow that could have fallen upon a hapless and prostrate people was delivered by the assassin's bullet that struck hitn down. Much of a misleading kind has been written touching what did and did not happen at the Hampton Roads conNothing ference. happened there which changed the irreconcilable attitude of the combatants. Their agents, indeed, argued from opposite premises the restoration of the Union the sine qua non of the one side, the recognition of the Confederacy the ultimatum of the other. Neither, indeed, possessed the power to come to terms. Mr. Davis had no right to dissolve the Confederacy and disband its armies, Mr. Lincoln none to commit bis government to any definite treaty. It is a fact, however, that the federa'. president was prepared with a plan then and there to end the war, which, could it have been adopted, would have saved two month.' bloody fighting and spared the South the humiliation of the final collapse unity from Col Henry Watterson, last of the "old school" editors, distinguished Mi Lands.

It should be borne in mind in this connection that Mr. Stephens and Mr. Lincoln were personal friends old Whig colleagues in congress Lincoln a warm admirer of Stephens, whom he wanted to ask to become a member of his cabinet when he was elected president. In the little cabin of the river steamer where the conference was being held the two had drawn apart from the rest. "Stephens," said Lincoln, as Mr. Stephens related the conversation to many of his friends, "you know I am a fair man and I know you to be one. Both of us understand the situation. Let me write 'Union' at the top of this page and you may write below it whatever else you please. I am sure you will write nothing which I cannot agree to." Mr. Stephens replied that the commissioners were limited to treating upon the basis of the recognition of the independence of the Confederacy.

In the general rather desultory and, in the end, wholly abortive, talk between the three Confederate commissioners and Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Seward, Mr. Lincoln recurring to slavery and the Emancipation Proclamation, declared that he would be willing to be taxed to pay the Southern people a fair valuation for their slaves. It Is a matter of fact that he had already prepared a joint resolution to be recommended to the two houses of congress appropriating $400,000,000 to this purpose, and a proclamation to be issued by himself as president when this had been adopted. On his return to Washington he laid these two papers before the cabinet. Inevitably there was opposition. "Why, gentlemen," he said, "how long is the war going to last? It Is not going to end in one hundred days, is it? It Is costing us $4,000,000 a day. There you have the $400,000,000, not counting the intervening loss of lives and property. But, you ore all against me, and I will say no more about it." Both papers still stand in his own handwriting. The South't True Friend. The death of Lincoln removed from the head of affairs the best, if not the only, friend the Southern people had at court.
