ence on official business should be accepted, saying: No man ever doubted his word, and no man ever doubted his fidelity, and no man ever doubted his high honor. Logan was hearty in declaring the injustice of displacing, at the beck of a Secretary of State, a senator as chairman who had done his duty, and maintained that it involembers of the Senate, is not right in itself, is not expedient, is a political blunder, wrong in itself, and had better be abandoned instead of being consummated. Logan and Wilson reminded the majority that the one precedent for a change at the instance of the Executive was the removal of Douglas from the head of the committee on up by any senator.

When he was deprived of the chairmanship, there was no man in the Senate so well equipped as he for the place, and not one more assiduous in his devotion to what he believed to be his duty; and in this there was no abatement until death relieved him. Similar testimonies have been received from other associates of Mr. Sumner in the Senate, as ex-Senators Morrill of Maine and Logan of Illinois, and Senators Anthony, Windom, and Spencer; but there is not space to insert them here. Senator Sherman of Ohio, now Secretary of the Treasury, in the debate on Mr. Sumner's removal, March 10, 1871, while considering himself bound by the action of the caucus, declared the change unjustifiable, impolitic, and unnecessary, and after Mr. Sumner's death, in a tribute to his memory, bore testimony to his remarkable fidelity. The leading promoters of the removal admitted in the deb
