Of course such high commendation
from snch a source made tne very
proud of my State and I acknowledg
ed his praise In the mt fitting term
:it my command. He piled mo with
questions about the conditions of af
fair, especially political. In Indiana.
His question, I remombir, were to
the Point and displayed hl thorough
knowledge of practical olltlei. Dur
ing the conversation ho told mo he
regarded Senator Mortnn as the most
consummate volltk-al genoal In the
whole country. When It Is remember
ed that they were not on the best
terms this was Indeed very high
praise, and, as I afterward learned.
Mr. Conkllng was not much given to
praising any one. I was with him for
more than an hour, and when I left
him I felt that I had been conversing
with a really great man. He was t
great man-greal as' a lawyer, sup
erlatlvelr great as an orater. I do
not care for his vanity which became
more and more evident as he grew
older In years; hi fascinating power
made you lose sight of such a lit
tie foible. I met him two or three
times during that visit to Washing
ton, and at the last meeting he ex
pressed a hop that should I at any
time be In the State of New Tork. near
his residence I should call on him. and
he tendered his assistance If I at any
time desire to enter the public ser
vice, a tender he afterward made good,
cturlng the administration of Presi
I did not meet him again until the
spring of 1S72, when I was once more
In Washington. He was standing In
the rotunda of the capltol ns I ap
proached, with no though that he
would recall either my face or name.
He was conversing with a member of
the New Tork delegation, but Joofclng
up he saw me, and at once spoke my
name. He was as kind as- suave as
he had been at my first meeting with
him, and ask me If there was anyth
ing he could do for me. I spent a
couple of hours In his company that
evening, and left him more charmed
and fascinated than ever. I listened to
one of his great speeches on the fin
ancial question and acknowledged that
his reputation as an orator by no
means surpassed his deerts.
My best recollections of him, how
ler, are connected with the campaign
of 1880. It Is hardly necessary to re
call the fact that he was bitterly dis
appointed In the defeat of General
Orant for the nomination In 1880. and
resented that of Garfield. As the cam
paign progressed the outlook for the
Republican party was very gloomy,
and It was thought neees-sary In In
diana tn brln every Influence to
bear to win the State (or Garfield.
At the opening of the campaign
Conkllng held aloof and Itwas charged
that he was sulking In his tent, like
Achilles before Troy, what Influence
Induced him finally to throw his great
weight In the scale I do not know, but
I do know that he had muoh to do
with the success of his party In In
diana. At that time Indiana elected
Its State officers in October, and It
was felt necessary to carry the State
at that election, and among others
Speakers Conkllng was Induced to visit
the State. If my memory Is right he
made only four speeches In Indiana.
I heard three of them. His' manner,
while speaking, was as cold as an
Icicle, and It wa evident from the
start he cared nothing for Oarfleld,
In fact, had rather a contemp for him,
but his oratory was' so graceful, his
words charged with so much logic:
and hlx phrases go elequontly turn
ed that his' audiences were thrown
Into the wildest enthusiasm, and
wherever ho spoke his party made
large gain". Usually there must be
some glow of enthusiasm about a
speaker to awaken much among his
hearers', but that was not tho cae
with Conkllng in the campaign of 1880.
In many respects he had changed
very much from the man who had so
cordially greeted me a dozen years bo
fore. Then he was frank and free In hi"
talk with newspaper men, and had
no objections' to being quoted. In 1880
he would not submit to an Interview,
no matter who asked for It. At the ho
tels he kept closely to his room, re
ceiving all callers with great urbanity,
but If the caller was' a stranger he was
sure to ask If he was connected with
the press. If he was, he was told he
was' welcome to hln room, but It must
be with the distinct promise that not
a word of what was said should be
published. I traveled with him to
three of his. appointments'. He would j
talk freely about any matter that was
before Congress; about foreign affairs;
about the country at large, but not one
word would he say about the political
campaign then pending, or about the
future of his party. If Orant wa the
topic he -would grow eloquent In tell
ing of his greatness as a commander
and as a President. . I remember
mentioning Senator Morton, In one of
the conversations, when Mr, Conkllng
said, In rather a musing manner;
"A great man, a very great man;
the hardest working man I ever knew
In public life. His reported last words,

Known Excellence and Quality and o! Known Component Parts.
To gain the full confidence of the Well Informed of the world and the approval of
the most eminent physicians, it is essential that the component parts be known to and
approved by them, and, therefore, the California l'i) Syrup Company has published for many
yean past in its advertisements and upon every package a full statement thereof. The per
fect purity and uniformity of product which they demand In a laxative remedy of n ethical
character'are assured by the California I'i Syrup Company's original method of manufacture,
known to the Company only.
There are other ethical remedies approved by physicians, but the product of
the California Tig Syrup Company possesses the advantage over all other family laxativci
that it cleanses, sweetens and relieves the internal organs on which it ads, without
disturbing the natural functions or any debilitating after effect and without having to
increase the quantity' from time to time.
This valuable remedy has been long and favorably known under the name of
Syrup of Figs, and has attained to world-wide acceptance as the most excellent of
family laxatives, and as its pure laxative principles, obtained from Senna, arc wcl

In servelng tho country."
I remember that In the liiree spe
eches I hi-ard him make In that cam
paign he never mentioned Ourfleld's
name, nor did I hear him mention It
during the several conversation I 'nad
with him. I was In Washington at
the opening of tho session of Oongrew
In December, 1SR0. and again met Mr.
Conkllng. I had been an enthusiastic
Oarfleld man after his nomination,
and forgot Mr. Corkllng's feelings to.
ward him, and In one of the conver
sations I had with him asked what
kind of an administration Mr. Onr
field would give the country. He hs.
tated some little time before replying,
and when he did reply It was' rather
sentcntlously; "Ho will prove, "said
he," a very great disappointment. No
men can tie to him. He Is a creature
of Impulse; Blaine will rontml him
B ain, man In Hie uarty. He wIM din-
appoint the country, and more than
all will disappoint his party." In the
same conversation he snld to me that
Indiana was responsible for Garfield's
nomination, very largely, and If the
party was broken over It, must bear a
large part of the blame. In explana
tlon of this he said that had Indiana
dtmid by Orant, the grat Oenera
would have been the nominee, and
Indiana's support of Maine In the con
vention he charged against General
Harrison, closing with the remark:
"If your great S'-nator, Morton, had
Ived he would have thrown Indiana t"
Grant. Ho was' ono of Grant's chief
advisers during his two terms, and
knew him,, and would havo supported
him. Indiana will never h"V, nnother

grt-uily blamed for resigning from the
Senate, but his mistake was nut In
resigning, but In seeking to be re
turned. He knew Garfield, and know
tho Influence that would control his
administration, and knew that lo re
main In the Senate would result only
In continued humiliations and a pos
