-LINCOLN'S GETTYSBURG SPKKCIl
Fourscore and seven years ago our ifathers brough't forth onMhis continent, a new nation, conceived in liber
ty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created tjqnal.
iNow we arc engaged in a great ciil war, testing whether teat nation, or any nation so conceived and so dodr
icatcd, an long endure. Wo are met on a great ibattli fiold of-tjnt war. We have come to dedicato a portion' of
that field, as a final resting place o! those who here gave tlulT lives that that nation might live; It is altogeth
er fitting and proper that we should do this, ;,. ' .'w ' ..
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate we- cnnfiot cotisfriiie-wc. aanot -hallow this grounds But .bravo
men, living and dead, who struggled hero, have consecrated it,' far aibovo our poor powor to add or detract. Tho
worl.l will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forrot what they did here. It is for
the living, rather, to 'bo dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly
advanced. It is rather for us .to be here dedicated' to the great task remaining before us that from theso hon
ored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the luat full measure of devotion 'that
wo here highly resolve that theso dead shall not have died in vain 'that this nation, under God, shall have a now
birth of freedom aud thait government of the people, by the peoplo, for the people, shall not perish from the
earth. (An accurate version of the Gettysburg address as revised !by Mr. Lincoln and printed in "Autographs of
lOur Country's Authors," Baltimore,18G4.)

" Unless the boys on the stato payroll
who are seeking to have the legislature
boost their salaries can lino up another
vote- or two in tho senate the salary
bills aro doomed.
The handwriting on tho wall appear
ed in the senuto yesterday afternoon
when tho bill to boost the salary of
State Tax Commissioner Galloway, from
$2500 to $3000 a year fell short jiut

Tho vote was 15 to 15, and it takes 16
votos, or a mnjority of ono, to got by.
After the tax commissioner's salary

to $3000 was reached on tho calendar
for third reading, but it was Bnved for
tho timo being from possibly u similur
fato by being referred to tho ways and'
In that connection, Prcsidont Vinton
reversed an earlier ruling ho had made
and held that all salary bills must first
go to tho ways aud means committee.
That will mean that salary boosting bills
must indeed bo meritorious to get by, as
tho ways and means committee is hav
ing a hard timo to take care of the ac
tuul wants of tho stute institutions.
Senator Banks,, who said ho had U
mind the bill to iucreaso the salary of
the insurance commissioner from $3000
to $3600 a year, objected to the presi
dent's ruling, rs he considered It a
foregone conclusion that the ways and
means committee would report unfavor
ably on all salary bills.
"Whan. the bill to increase the salary
of Tax Commissioner Galloway came
up for action, Senator Patterson mado

morning by Senator Orton to amend
the senato rules to keep the salary bills
from being referred to tho ways and

hostile to them, was defeated by a
vote of 6 to 24.
