Not a few of the men who have be

have given utterance in one way or
another, to phrases which are indel

literature and have become so per
manent and familiar as to be house
Comparatively speaking, however,
these utterances or happy expres
sions as they may be called, aré rare.
There are no striking instances of
these recorded as coming either ftom

Jefferson said: “We are all republic
ans, we are all federalists.” Consider
ing Mr. Jefferson’s philosophical
habit and his voluminous writings,
it is somewhat to be wondered at
that he has left no remarkable ex
pression, political or otherwise.
Andrew Jackson may not be fairly

his favorite oath, “by the eternal,”
is familiar and is more or less used
by latter day stump speakers.
One of the finest phrases uttered
by any American and one which is

Lincoln has left a rich legacy of
popular and striking expressions, to
be found in his public addresses,
campaign speeches and messages.
One of the most beautiful and note
worthy is “With charity toward all;
with malice toward none.”
As a soldier General Grant assist
ed in immortalizing himself by his
famous saying: “I propose to fight it
out on this line if it takes all sum
mer;’’ and as a president by giving
utterance to that lofty sentiment:
“Let us have peace.”
President Garfield, who was per
haps the most scholarly and accomp
lished man who ever occupied the
White House, uttered a magnificent
phrase on a memorable occasion. In
attempting to quiet a mob in New
York City when Lincoln was assassi
nated he declared in stentorian tones
which had a magical effect: “God
reigns and the government at Wash
ington still lives!”
Cleveland has coined many notable
expressions. As a phrase-monger
he stands unequaled by any of his
predecessors. “Tell the truth;” “in
nocuous desuetude;” and in his recent
letter accompanying the enactment
of the new tariff bill into a law,
“communism of pelf.”
