LIXCOLS'S GKTTYSHURU SPEECH.
Ward Lamon Says it Was Unanpro-
dated by tho Audience When
A day or two before tho dedica
tion of the National Cemetery at
Gettysburg, Mr. Lincoln told me
that he would bo oxpectcd to make
a speech on tho occasion ; that ho
was extremely busy, with no tlmo
for preparation ; and that ho greatly
feared ho would not bo able to
acquit himself with credit, much
less to till tho measure of public ex
pectation. From his lint (tho usual
receptacle of his private- notes and
memoranda) ho drew a pago of fools
cap, closely written, which ho read
to me, first remarking that it was n
memorandum of what he Intended
to say. It proved tobe in substance,
and, I think, hieo. verba, what was
printed as his Gettysburg speech.
After its delivery ho exnrossed n
deep regret that ho had not prepared
It with great care. He said to me
on tho stand Immediately after con
cluding the speech!: "Lamon, that
speech won't soar ! It is a Hat fail
ure, and the people nro disappoint
ed." Ho seemed moro than ordi
narily concerned about what tho
people would think of it. I was
deeply impressed by his frank and
regretful condemnation of tho effort,
and especially;by his manner of ex
pressing that regret, and my own
impression was deepened by thofact
thnt the orator of the day, Mr. Ever
ett, and Mr. Seward both coincided
with Mr. Lincoln in his unfavorable
view of Its merits.
The occasion was solemn, Im
pressive, and grandly historic. Tho
people stood spellbound, It is true.
Tho vast throng was hushed nnd
i(cd into profound silence while
Mr. Lincoln read his brief address;
but It seemed that this silence and
attention to his words nroso more
from thesolemnity oft he ceremonies,
and tho nwful scenes which gave
occasion to them thnt from any
thing tho president said. On tho
platform from which Mr. Lincoln
mado his address, nnd only a mo
ment after its conclusion, Mr. Re
ward turned to Mr. Everett and
asked him what ho thought of tho
president's speech. Mr. Everett
replied: "Tt was not what I ex
pected froinhiin; I nm disappointed."
Tn his turn Mr. Everett asked:
"Whnt do you think of it, Mr. Se
ward ?" Tho response was: "Ho has
mado a failure, nnd I am sorry for
it; his speech is not equal to him."
"Mr. Marshal, whnt do you think of
It?" "I nm sorry to say It does not
impress mo as ono of his great
speeches." In the fnco of those
fads it lins been repeatedly published
that this speech was iccelved with
great eclat by the audience; that
amid tho tears, sobs, and cheers it
produced in the excited throng tho
orator of tho dny, Mr. Everett
turned Impulsively to Mr. Lincoln,
grasped his hand nnd exclaimed:
"I congrntulnto you on your suc
cess!" udding in n transport of
enthusiasm, ' "Ah, Mr, 1'reBldont,
how gladly would I givo nil my
hundred pages to lie the author of
your twenty linos 1"
All this unworthy gush, It Is need
less to suy, Is purely apocryphal.
Nothing of tho kind occurred. It Is
an afterthought merely rhetorical
bombast gotten up to servo tho
purpose of baseless adulation. It Is
n Blunder on Mr. Everett, an In
JiHtieo to Mr. Lincoln, nnd n falsi
fication of history. Mr. Everett
could not have used tho words at
tributed to him, in tho face of hln
oiHinly-exprossod condemnation of
Mr. Lincoln's speech, without sub
jecting hiniMrif to the Just charge of
Iwlng a toudy and u hypocrite, and
lie whs neither the ono nor the
other. As a matter of fact, Mr.
Lincoln's grunt Gettysburg sjieech
fell on the vast audience like n wot
blanket. At that time his reputa
tion who couftwMMJly on tho wnnu.
Tlw iKilitldnns of tho country Uioki
of his own party, together with a
targe part ofthe prnw were ca ting
about for an available eamlldftttt to
1m his wiot'or, while h grwit nm-
jorityiof thu iH)pl ware for him.

Gettysburg speech wwd not received
or commented upon with anything
llko hearty favor by the people, tho
politicians, or tho press of tho
United States until after tho death
of its author. Its marvelous per
fection and its intrinsic excellence
asn masterpiece of English com
position seemed to have escaped the
scrutiny of the most scholarly
critics and tho wisest heads of that
day on this side of tho Atlantic,
That discovery was made, wo must
regretfully say, by distinguished
writers on tho other side. Tho Lon
don Spectator, thoSaturday Review,
tho Edinburg Review, and other
English journals were tho flrst to
discover, or at least to proclaim, the
classical merits of the Gettysburg
speech. It was then that wo began
to realize that it was indeed n
masterpiece, and It then dawned
upon many minds that wo had en
tertained an angel unawares who
had left us unappreciated.

The Sugar Duty In tho Senate Dili.
"Washington, Aug. 1. There has
been a great struggle In tho sub
committee of tho ilnaneo conunltteo
of tho senate, which Is preparing a
tariff bill as n substitute for tho
Mills bill, with regard to tho duty
on sugar. Tliero is n disposition
among the republicans in tho cast to
make a cut of 60 per cent, in tho
tariff on sugar. This feeling has
been so strong that It has boon ex
pected heretofore that tho repub
lican measure to bo prepared by
the republican senators would mako
this heavy cut. Only two stntes In
tho north have stood against It,
California on account of her pros
pective beet sugar Industry, and
Kansas on account of her prospec
tive sorghum Industry. Repre
sentatives of these two states linvo
fully and intelligently presented
tho ease to tho senatorial sub-committee.
Tho present duty on sugar
is about 8J1.7. After hearing the
arguments of tho California and
tho Kansas people, tho sub-eom-mittce
has decided not to mako so
heavy n cut as 50 per cent, of tho
present taritf. It Is about decided
that a reduction of tho present duty
of about 12o per cent. Is all that
should bo made In view of tho
splendid prospects of tho sugar in
terests of California anduinsus.
