hapter on the Tribune in his Busy Life. In truth, the Tribune was his lasting monument. He had qualified himself to edit it. He had the courage to found it. He made it a greater power than has ever been exercised by another newspaper in the United States. He identified his own name with it as no other editor has been personally identified with the journal committed to his charge. Greeley had entered on his thirty-first year when the first number of the Tribune was issued, and had been a rmincing neutrality on the other. The rivalry that he had to face may be understood from the following list of newspapers published in New York city in November, 1842, with their estimated circulation, as given in Hudson's Journalism in the United States: CashPapersCirculation Herald,2 cents15,000 Sun,1 cent20,000 Aurora,2 cents5,000 Morning Post,2 cents3,000 Plebeian,2 cents2,000 Chronicle,1 cent5,000 Tribune,2 cents9,500 Union,2 cents1,000 Tattler,1 cent2,000 62,500 Sunday

Irish cause in 1848, and of the cause of Hungary, in whose behalf it proposed the raising of a patriotic loan, in shares of $100; its championship of cooperation in labor; its gradual approach to the radical view of temperance legislation represented by the Maine law, and its opposition to capital punishment, to more liberal divorce laws, and to flogging in the navy. It is true that its espousal of many causes raised up a host of enemies for the Tribune, and no other newspaper in the United States was looked on as so dangerous by those who did not agree with it. Nevertheless, the champion whose sword was naked for an attack on any worthy foe was an intellectual hero in thousands of eyes, and when Raymond started the Times in 1852 to supply a journal of political views similar to those advocated by the Tribune without the Tribune's vagaries, the new enterprise succeeded, but it made no serious inroads on the circulation of the older one. Greeley complained that the Times's circu

In December, 1836, the United States charge d'affaires at the city of Mexico asked for his passportsto Texas, and, after the Texas Government had received from the United States' diplomatic agent an assurance that no power would be permitted by the United States to invade Texas territory because of such a treaty, an envoy from Texas was sent to Washington to complete the negotiatpurchase had been ceded to Spain by subsequent treaty; that the United States should not go to war with Mexico to secure Texas, and that he w from migrating, with our property, into the Territories of the United States because we are slaveholders.

d not money enough to pay his way to Washington. In the following January, however, he found work in the office of the Spirit of the Times, which had just been started by W. T. Porter and James Howe, two newcomers from the country, with scant capital. This enterprise was a discouraging one from the start, but, while Greeley found it difficult to collect his wages, he also found opportunity to show his skill in writing articles for the paper, thus keeping in practise what he had learned in Vermont. Later in the year he secured employment in the office of J. S. Redfield, afterward a prominent publisher, and remained there until he was induced to join a fellow printer in setting up a printing establishment of their own. That experiment came about in this way: Francis Story, the foreman of the Spirit of the Times composing-room, numbered among his acquaintances S. J. Sylvester, a leading seller of lottery tickets, and Dr. H. D. Shepard, a medical student, who had about $1,500 in ca

ne's carriers to give up its distribution, and, failing in this, informed newsdealers that those who sold the Tribune could not handle the Sun. This action stirred up a war between the two papers, in which the public took a lively interest, and attention was thus called to a new venture which was confessedly so serious a competitor. Before he had begun the publication of the Tribune Greeley had hired as an editorial assistant on the New Yorker a young man who, while a college student in Vermont, had been a valued contributor to that journal. This was Henry J. Raymond, in later years the founder of the Tribune's chief local competitor, the Times, and an antagonist in views social and political. Greeley has said that Raymond showed more versatility and ability in journalism than any man of his age whom he ever met, and that he was the only one of his assistants with whom he had to remonstrate for doing more work than any human brain and frame could be expected long to endure.

While he could not withhold from the Abolitionists a certain measure of sympathy for their great and good object, he failed to see how they were assisting to secure the end in view-how the conversion of all the people of Vermont to Abolitionism would overthrow slavery in Georgia. Hence, conservative by instinct, by tradition, and disinclined to reject or leave undone the practical good within reach, while straining after the ideal good that was clearly unattainable, Iion more active, detraction more relentless, prejudice more stubborn and apathy more frozen than among slaveholders themselves. The list of antislavery societies in the United States in 1826 shows that there were none in Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, or Connecticut, and only one each in Rhode Island and New York, while there were forty-one in North Carolina, twenty-three in Tennessee, four in Maryland, and two in Virginia.
