LOWELL: CRITICAL STUDY BY PROF. GATES
(Copyright. 1800, by Seymour Eaton.)
THtOREOONIAN'S HOME STUDY CIRCLE: DIRECTED Bi PROF. SEYMOUR EATON
Perhaps the first and most vivid Impres
sion one gets from reading rapidly large
Quantities of Lowell's prose Is that of the
richness and generosity of his nature.
Nothing in Lowell's essays is eked out;
"here Is God's plenty." His knowledge
of fact and of anecdote In his treatment
of literary topics Is seemingly boundless,
find his critical essays have the air of be
ing, not the clever and showy expression
2f masses of knowledge fresh won for
the occasion, but the easy outpouring of
stores of learning acquired through years
of leisurely and happy communion with
"books. He is, for example, far more
copious in thought and fancy and illus
tration than Matthew Arnold, whose es
says in contract seem .somewhat thin
and closely calculated directed with
"malice prepense" toward a single point.
In Lowell's essays there is much of the
exuberance and luxuriant detail of na
ture. Lowell's lyrical praise of June in
several of his poems is typical of his
character, and his writings have the
warmth, the full-hearted ease and the
sunntness of Summer weather. He is
human through and through, and his es
isays have a racy carthiness of substance
and an aromatic fragrance of wild, nat
ural iifc that remove them far from the
Tcglon of Icy academicism. He had
"mixed his blood with sunshine" and
""taken the winds into his pulses."
TJp to the very last even after his
years of brilliant foreign service Lowell
was wont to speak of himself as "a biok
roan," and doubtless It is as a writer
about books that he will finally be dis
tinctively remembered. Mr. Leslie Ste
phen, "has left In a published letter a de
lightfully Vivid sketch of Lowell In his
AX first etcrnt X found a singularly complete
specimen of tho literary recluse, I remem
ber. With a curious vividness, the chairs In

wood phlmreys -deep-throated roar," and In
deed can almost hear it still. I need hardly
add that we worshiped
IJIcotla, dearer to the Muse
Than all tho grape's bewildering Juice.
All around uf were tho crowded book shelves,
whose appearance showed them to be the com
panions of the true literary workman, not of
the mere dilettante or fancy biographer. Their
ragged bindings and thumbed pages scored
with frequent pencil marks Implied that they
were, tu student's tools, not mere ornamental
playthings. He would sit among his books,
pipe In mouth, a book in band, hour after
hour, and X was soon Intimate enough to sit
by him and enjoy Interval"! of silence as well
as periods of discussion and always delightful
This picture of Lowell as an American
scholar devoted to letters is worth spe
cial emphasis because of the fact that his
social successes abroad has tended
somewhat to pervert his image in the
popular mind Into that of a polished so
ciety functionary and a welcome and well
pleased dweller in Kings' houses. Great
Indeed was the favor he won in England
as a graceful unveiler of busts and as
a skilled coiner of after-dinner epigrams;
very genuine, too, and deep was his ap
preciation as appears from his letters
of the peculiar position he attained In
English society and of the Intensely stim
ulating human intercourse to which it
admitted him. In the later years of his
American life at Deerfoot he seem some
times to havo missed rather keenly in his
""cell" there the "breakfasts, luncheons,
teas, dinners and 'goings-on " of his
London life. Yet he insists that after
all he "likes Deerfoot best." and no fair
reader of his letters or later -writings
can justly accuse Lowell of having been
spoiled by his foreign popularity or of
having lost any of his early ardent and
almost religious love for American Ideals
and the best types of American charac
ter. Lowell's addresses on political subjects
ought to be gathered together Into a
single cheap volume and sent broadcast
through the land. Nowhere are the dan
gers of modern democracy more wisely
and wittily set forth, always, however,
with concurrent unfaltering faith In the
worth of the democratic Ideal and In the
cortainty of its future. There is not
much -scientific thoroughness or acumen
in Lowell's comments on institutions and
political tendencies, very little phllo
eophle suggestlveness such as Is found in
Sir Henry Maine's or Mr. Brycc's treat
ment of similar topics. But there is
great practical wisdom, abundant intui
tive insight into the American character
end Its elements of weakness and
strength, and a wise and accomplished
rense of the possible value to Ameri
cans of foreign experiments and meth
ods and traditions; and, finally, there is
everywhere a glowing .affection for the
faith of the fathers and a noble loyalty
to ideals in .politics i faith and a loy
ally that we nowadays perhaps more
than ever before need to have eloquently
expressed by way of countercheck to
the '"smart" selfishness of many of our
practical politicians, and also to the sa
tirical superiority of the "remnant," who
too often Injure their cause by their airs
and affectations. Lowell's wise earnest
ness and fervent urbanity Impress and
conciliate Instead of rasping and re
pelling. In his political utterances there
Is united more perfectly than anywhere
else $be -wisdom of lhe fathers that be
gaj: -us, the -assimilated -worth Qf jconr
temporary polijieat experiments, abroad
and, a -shrewd appreciation of the actual
problpms and conditions Qf "practical pol
itics" in America.
But after all, 1n spite of the sterling
value of these political addresses. It is
LowelU the bookman, who is llkclv to be
most perennially-interesting in the his
tory of our literature. He is beyond de
bate the greatest of our critics, and he
Jias left, of all our writers. the most
considerable mass of essays "that deal
with purely literary problems. His meth
od and manner as a critic vary widely.
At times he is the reviewer pure and
sicnplft dogmatic, caustic, contempora
neous partisan. His essay on Carlyle's
"Frederick" is written in this vein; it Is
searching, suggestive. Impressively com
petent, but somewhat intemperate in
tone, violent both In praise and blame.
Sometimes his essays are faithful scho
lastic discussions of his subject, treit
thoroughly and rystematlcally the life
as well as the works of his author and
consider patiently the traditional cruxes
and the conventional doubts and que"-
lions that his author's name suggests.
His "Dryden" a favorite essay with Low
ell himself) Is of this type. Sometimes
he is wayward capricious, purely appre
ciative a willful gossiper about likes
and dislikes in literature. But whntver
hi method or vein, h is always and In
var! ibly a man, and he never loses fight
of life and of the human worth of his
subject. Our scholarship nowadays tends
disastrously to hole-and-corner work.
Myopic poring over trifles that is what
many of our Teutonically trained stu
dents devote themselves to. Some French
man has called our age "the age of thp
microbe." and indeed in scholarship as
everywhere else the might and the -worth
of the infinitely little have been perhaps
exaggerated, or at any rate the study of
the infinitely small has been monopollz
inprly carried on to the detriment of the
Indubitably great. Into this latter-dav
neglect of the vital in scholarship L-well
is never betrayed. He is alwavs mister
of his learning; whatever the ago or the
man or the book he discusses, his imag
ination finds underneath the farts and
the technical problems Involved some
permanent human interest, the dramatic
Interest of character In -ict'on. the ar
tistic Interest of embodied beautv. the
philosophic interest of rodal-and spirit

present needs of the human spirit.
Lowell's poetry, apart from the "Big
low Papers," falls into three periods, of
which the second contains what Is finest
and most imaginative. Before 1S50 his
poetry Is for the most part, despito some
poems that will always be favorites,
over-rhetorical and declamatory much
of It Is grotesquely imitative Of English
models; "Rosaline" is palpably Inspired
by Tennyson, and a "Legend Of Brit
tany" is full of absurd echoes of Keats1
rhythms and tricks of manner. "Rhoe
cus," "Columbus," "Hunger and Cold"
and "To the Dandelion" are among the
more original and permanently delight
ful of the poems of this first period. The
"Present Crisis" is magnificent rhetoric.

pure and simple. In many of the poems In

parts of the "Commemoration Ode"
"ELMWOOD," THE HOME OF
Lowell is really creative; he no longer
merely talks In meter about Ideas and
feelings, and expatiates on them thriugh
the help of brilliant figures, but he rises
into a region of intense lyrical feeling
where every object Is radiantly alive with
imaginative meaning, and where beauty
of image and mu;Ic of phrase work to
gether to instill a mood and a -thought
into the reader's mind. There Is also far
more sensuous splendor In these poems
of the second period than in Lowell's
earlier work; the Intense, vibrant Impres
sionism of the "Appledore" sketches in
"Under the "Willows" fairly rivals Mr.
Swinburne's outdoor canvases, and the
title poem, "Under the "Willows," contains
some lustrous river landscape whose rich
lmpasto and emotional glow will always
be specially dear to dwellers by the
Charle?. The poems of Lowell's third
period, t be found for the most part in
"Heartsease and Rue," are often sug
gestive of Landor. They are for the
most part permeated with a ganlal world
ly wisdom through which there often
sounds a note of Horatlan half-playful
sadness. They seem the work of an ac-
James Rnssell Lowell.
complished scholar who smiles out upon
life and back upon his earlier years of
Ideal enthusiasm with kindly tolerance
and yet by no means with entire disbe
lief In ideals and certainly without cyn
icism. Though Lowell" was greatly Longfel
low's superior In vigor of thought, he
had not Longfellow's singing instinct:
too often In Lowell's verse the prose in
tellectual processes fall to "pass in mu
sic out of sight."' As an essayist and a
writer of literary "causerles" he Is with
out a rival among our American authors.
His ubanity, his common sense and de
licious worldly wisdom, his large apd
sane outlook over life, his union of schol.
arshlp with artlst'c sensitiveness, h's in
exhaustible geniality and his lnveterately

essays perennial charm and value.
CROKER FOR EXPANSION.-
The Democratic Leader Declares
That It Is a Question of the Day
and Believes in It as a Pa
From the New Tork Journal.
Every man, in my opinion, should ex
press himself clearly on the great ques
tion of the day. That question Is Na
tional expansion, which has - been the
mainspring of this Nation and the policy
'of the Democracy since the Nation's
birth. The views which follow are mine
personally, and I write them as a private
I believe in expansion; I believe in
holding whatever posiesslons we
"have grained by annexation, pur
chase, or war.
Tliis policy is not only patriotic,
but it is the only safe one to parsne.
Any other policy wonld show weak
ness on the part of the United States
and invite foreign complications.
This must be avoided, hence onr pol

Jefferson was an expansionist, other
wise he would nt have favored the ac
quisition of Louisiana, with its foreign
population, which in Jefferson's time was
quite as remote as the Philippines. In
this age of steam and electricity, distance
is no argument against expansion.
We spend millions annually for mission
ary work In foreign countries. Now we
have a chance to spend this money In our
own possessions, and make the people of
our new lands good, law-abiding citizens,
who In time will be" loyal to our Con
stitution and our flag. Take England, for
example. The people of this little isle
come pretty near owning the universe.
Arc not our people as intelligent, as pow
erful, -and as patriotic as the English peo
ple? The United States Is the only coun
try on earth superior to the English. Why
not illustrate to the world that we are
fully able to cope with greater problems
than we have had occasion to in the past,
and in the future dominate any emer
gency? We have a population of 80,000,000 of peo
ple; the country teems with young men
full of life, hope and ambition. Why not
give thre young men a chance to develop
our newly acquired pcssjss'ons, and bul'

triotism' our own United States?
I say by all means 'bold on to all
that rightfully belongs to tts.
If the great country west of the Rocky
Mountains was filled with wild IndianB at

TRACES OF THE DELUGE.
Object of Dr. Wright's Trip Through
NEW YORK, Sept. 21 Dr. G. S. Gregor,
editor of the Homlletic Review, has just
received a 'letter from the Rev. Dr.
George Frederick Wright, of Oberlln Col
lege, Ohio, which discloses the object of
the trip the professor has started to make
through Siberia. He is considered an au
thority on the glacial period of tho earth's
geological history and refuses to accept
the theory that the deluge merely sub
merged tho regions round about Pales-
ktlne. He believes that when the author
of the Pentateuch said. the waters cov
ered the face of the earth, he meant it.
Professor "Wright will go through tho
mountains of Siberia far from where men
ordinarily go. There he will make ex
cavations. He will dig up the earth un
til. with the geologist's eye, he discovers
just that stratum which should havo been
deposited during the period in which the
deluge took place. Next he will explore
the Caucasus Range, pass down to an
cient Ararat, where tradition says the
ark landed, and emerge from his .travels
somewhere near Smyrna, Asia Minor. If,
in oil the mountain regions he explores,
Dr. "Wright finds the remains of the sea
for which he looks, he will conclude that
the deluge was a historical -fact.

SALEM, Sept 1. Tha attendance at
the State Fair Increases doily, and prom
ises to mount' s-tAll higher tomorrow, tho
otoslpg day of Oregon's greatest industrial
exposition. Fine weather has brought
out many who have been prevented from
attending early in the week. The chief
attractions will be the Elk parade, the
2:14 pace, and the consolation pace for
the nine horses that were relegated to the
"also ran" class in the 2:18 pace for tho
Chamber of Commerce stake.
Tho Elks' parade will be given by tho
local lodge to allow home people and vis
itors as well an opportunity to see the
uniforms and drill which won for the
lodge the mounted elk given a$ a prize
at the Portland Street Fair and Carnival.
The lodge will parade at 2 o'clock in the
afternoon, and tho procession will be
headed by a float bearing the much-esteemed
The 2:H pace will be tho fastest event
of the track, and will be participated In
by nlro horses. It will be the occasion
for good betting by those who enjoy rac
ing best when they have money depend
ing on the resuit. r
The consolation pace will show to some
extent tho difference between a poor
track and a good one, for it Is quite cer
tain that some of the horses which were
distanced in the 2:18 pace Tuesday will
beat the time made by the horses that
won tho premiums. The track on Tues
day was wet, while tomorrow the best
kind of fast time turf will be insured.
The livestock continues to be a great
center of attraction. There are many
who. never tire of looking at tho exhibits
in this department and they make a tour
of the stocksheds every day. There was
a magnificent paradeof cattle and horses
this mornine the. second stock parade of
the fair. An Immense crowd of peoplft

field of the track, over which tho proces
Nearly all the livestock awards have
been made and by the blue ribbons pin
ned to the stalls visitors are enabled to
determine the animals which were con
sidered best by the judges. Considerable
buying and selling has been done, espe
cially by goat breeders. Only the best
of the nu.ny flocks have been brought to
the fair, so the farmers who desire to
embark In the goatraiIng business, as
an aid to land clearing, have had an ex
cellent' opportunity to buy the finest stock
at fair prices.

Through the kindness of tho Southern
Pacific Company in granting reduced

A crowd of patients at the asylum for

The old Oregon Agricultural Society,
consisting of some 50 life members, held
its annual meeting this evening, and
elected the following officers: President,
John Wright; vice-president. John Min

decided to donate to the present BoaTd of

SALEM, Sept. 21. The grandstand ac
commodations at the racetrack were far
too limited for the vast crowd that assem
bled this morning to witness the rates.
Hundreds of men stood on the ground In
front of the stand or crowded around the
fence lining tho track. The races were
called promptly on time, and everything
passed off with clock-like regularity. The
spectators took a lively interest in every
heat, cheering the horses as they started
and again when they passed under the
wire on the return. It Is very noticeable
that the people have confidence that the
races this year are free from any trick
ery. A visitor said today, "Money makes
the mare go," but he was immediately
contradicted by several men who have
been regular witnesses of this year's
races. The judges have watched closely
for the slightest Indication of crooked
work, and are not at all backward In
giving warnings 'to drivers or riders who
show any evidence of desiring to be oth

cars carrying GO or over. 50 per cent of
their seating capacity. Children not pay
ing fare are not Included.
