t in its strait,—a measure which was carried. Works, vol. v. pp. 455, 458, 465, 466. Later in the session the Morrill tariff bill was passed. Sumner made an effort without success to put engravings, paintings, and statuary on the free list, as well as books which had been printed thirty years. He advocated a lower duty on books than the fifteen per cent proposed by the bill, and expressed his preference for admitting all books free. He was opposed by Hale of New Hampshire, Baker of Oregon, and Clingman of North Carolina, but assisted by Douglas. February 18, 19, 20. Congressional Globe, pp. 987, 1030, 1047-1051. He continued while in the Senate, whenever the question came up, to contend for free books and free works of art and free instruments for use in scientific education, and was finally successful in freeing books thirty years old from duty. July 8, 1862; Works, vol. VII. pp. 166-168, June 2 and 6, 1864; Works, vol. VIII. pp. 471-474, June 17, 1864; Works, vol.

the first open word against slavery in the District since the breaking out of the rebellion. Works, vol. VI. pp. 119, 120, 121-123. The next week he took part in the tributes to two senators recently deceased,—Bingham of Michigan and Baker of Oregon, the latter of whom, while serving as an officer, had fallen at Ball's Bluff. President Lincoln came to the Senate to listen to the eulogies on Colonel Baker. Sumner drew the characters of the two senators, and particularly emphasized their relantained by the votes of Anthony, Fessenden, and Frelinghuysen. Works, vol. XII. pp. 257-269. of Indiana, both senators being accused of participating in or giving countenance to the rebellion; and also in the debate on the admission of Stark of Oregon, to whom disloyal conduct was imputed. Feb. 18, 26. June 5, 1862. Works, vol. VI. pp. 346-364. He spoke in favor of the title of Lane of Kansas to his seat, maintaining that he had not lost it by accepting what was alleged to be an incompati

ds (in 1867 and 1870), while Sumner was chairman; and again in 1882 and 1884 it was annexed for information to brief reports made in one or both Houses. The measure finally prevailed in 1885, and the payment of the claims began in 1891. In a carefully prepared speech Sumner treated in the light of history and foreign examples the subject of coinage, with special reference to the question between one and several mints, and favored, on account of the extent of the country, a branch mint in Oregon. April 29, 1864. Works, vol. VIII. pp. 437-451. The measure was carried in the Senate against the finance committee (Fessenden chairman) and advice from the departments. At this session the national bank and currency system, established the year before and still hardly under way, underwent a radical transformation, and a new Act of Congress was substituted for the first one. There was a positive difference of opinion as to the propriety of allowing the States to tax their stock or s

the distinction of caste, as offensive to the moral sense and repugnant to the principles and pledges of the nation. No Republican senator had the hardihood from that time to vindicate the justice of the discrimination which the proposed amendment allowed the States to continue, and the argument for it became largely apologetic. It was admitted to come, short of what was best, while no more was thought attainable in the existing conditions of public sentiment. One senator, Williams of Oregon. though withholding assent from Sumner's advanced position, confessed his profound admiration of the speech, pronouncing it worthy of the subject, worthy of the occasion, worthy of the author, and predicted that when those who heard it shall be forgotten, the echoes of its lofty and majestic periods will linger and repeat themselves among the corridors of history. It was the text of a wide discussion in the country, and it received commendation from public journals and a large number of app

does not return,—he comes under our influences, he shares the good, of our churches, of our schools, and if you will let him he will grow up in the glory and the beauty of our citizenship. Senators say no; shut him out from citizenship; let him have nothing of this great privilege. Here I differ. I claim for him all that you accord to others,—nor more, nor less. There can be but one rule for all. Because the Almighty made him of a color slightly different from my friend the senator from Oregon, I know not why he should not be equal to that senator in rights,—I know not why he should not enter into the same citizenship. In the debate on the naturalization laws, as also in other debates during the session, Conkling was offensive to Sumner, being uniformly the aggressor. Jan. 14, 17, Feb. 10, 1870. Congressional Globe, pp. 459, 506, 1143-1146. It aggravated him that Sumner ignored him and let his thrusts pass in silence. Finally, when interrupting as if he had been referred <

office of chief-justice was filled at this session. The President first offered the place to Mr. Conkling, among whose qualifications, whatever they were, the judicial temper was not one. Fortunately, he declined it; then George H. Williams of Oregon was nominated, whose name was withdrawn when it was found impossible to secure a confirmation. A greater surprise was then in store,—the immediate nomination of Caleb Cushing, who, having been appointed and confirmed as minister to Spain, was ablution. In the House the eulogies, cordial and affectionate like those of the Senate, were from Dawes and the brothers Hoar of Massachusetts, Conger of Michigan, Kelley of Pennsylvania, Phillips of Kansas, Rainey of South Carolina, Nesmith of Oregon, and notably Lamar of Mississippi, a former Confederate officer. The Boston Advertiser, April 29, 1874, singled out Mr. Lamar's tribute as the most significant and hopeful utterance that has been heard from the South since the war. Nesmith, a
