THE OTTAWA FREE TRADER, SATURDAY. SEPT. 21, 186i, SAMUEL SULLIVAN COX. AN EXTREMELY VARIED AND FAIRLY SUCCESSFUL CAREER. He Wae Ouly Incidentally a Humorlat. but Always a Practical and Hurd Working Legislator A Quarter r Century la CoiicrM-l837 to 1889. Now that Congressman Samuel Sullivan Cox has pasted to bis eternal rest, the American public fully realizes the good work he did. lie was a humorist, it is true; but he waa far more. He was virtually the creator of the life saving service on the coasts, and secured the enactment of the desired laws by congress; he devised and systematized the best practicable system of taking the census; be drafted and had passed several' laws of great value to New York city, and during the civil war he was conspicuous among the very few men who opposed the general policy of the administration, and yet was never for one moment misunderstood or accused of faltering in devotion to the Union and constitution. His own statement of bis position in those exciting times has been accepted by men of all parties. It was given in his "Eight Year In Congreas," in 1865, and ran as follows: "I represented you truly when I warned and worked from 1836 to 1860 against the passionate zealotry of north and south. I supported every measure which was constitutional to suppress the rebellion. At the same time I have fully challenged the conduct of the administration in the use of the means committed to it by a devoted people. Believing that a proper use of such means would bring peace and union, and believing hi no peace as permanent unless it were wedded to the Union in love and contentment, I have omitted no opportunity to forward these objects. This I have done in spite of threats and violence. For doing it your con-fMnv has not been diminished, but in creased." It may be added that though many believe be erred in many of his votes, all concede his honesty and patriotism. He was, indeed, or patriotic ancestry on both aides. His pater nal grandfather entered Washington's army as a captain and rose to the rank of brigadier general, and his father was one of the pioneer settlers and statesmen of Ohio, while his mother was of the Sullivan family of Revolutionary times. Of Lisa descent, Samuel Sullivan Cox was born at Zanesville, O., Sept. 30, 1831. He graduated at Brown university in 1840, worked long and earnestly as editor and contributor to a local paper, spent a year in Peru as secretary of legation, traveled in Europe, wrote "The Buckeye Abroad," aud did many other good things before reaching the age of 33, at which age, in 1830, he was elected to congress. Three times re-elected, he served continuously eight years; then, having missed two terms, he re-entered congress, this time from the Ninth district of New York. He had taken up his residence in the city in 1806. In 1870 he was re-elected; in 1S72 he was beaten for congressman at largo. The next election he came In again, and was ro elected aain and again till his years of Rervice lucked but little of a quarter of a century. Of his return to congress Hon. James U. Blaine in his history says: "It was not possible for Mr. Cox to keep out of the political Held. His 8A1IUEL SULLIVAN COX. talent for the tump, Iris ready wit, and above all his good nature and good sense, commended him to the New York Democrats. He has been a model of industry. In all the pressure of congressional life, to the duties of which he has given assiduous attention, he has devoted much time to literature and has published several original and entertaining books." The first of these books, "The Buckeye Abroad," has often returned to plague the author. In its pages he expressed without reserve and with all the fervor of youth his Immature ideas on Catholicism, Ireland, foreign trade and many other subjects, on which, it is scarcely necessary to add, his opinion was changed by longer observation. Nevertheless these were his expressions in type, and they have many times been quoted, both in congress aud the campaign press. The work which Mr. Coz did in congress was of the most practical nature. He was always the friend of the letter carriers, and he not only secured them better pay, introduced a bill which gave them vacations, but he worked hard and long to lessen their hours of labor, in which effort he was successful. His law for the inspection of foreign vessels has done much to lessen the dangers of the sea, and the bill he Introduced for the protection of immigrants put an end to many scandalous abuses. - A number of resolutions about the protection and release of American citizens abroad, including the vindication of German, Irish and Hebrew citizenship and religious toleration, fill his honorable record. Mr. Cox tried twice to pass a bill for the protection of commercial travelers, which was both times de feated in the senate. For many years be was regent of the Smithsonian institution. He moved to take the Thurman bill forfeiting lands given to the Pacific railroads from the table and passed it in the house after one day's debate. He made the only steech against the back pay bill and returned the money paid to htm. Mr. Cox served as a member of the com' mittee of foreign affairs, for which he was eminently qualified by his experience in diplomacy, his extensive travels in foreign lands and his close study and research. His mind was retentive and vigorous. When in 1883 he was a candidate for speaker of the house of representatives it was asserted that no other man was better adapted for the position than Mr. Cox, because of his perfect familiarity with the rules and practice of the house. As speaker pro tern, he proved himself an excellent parliamentarian, bearing himself with dignity and a measure of force little to be expected from so slight a form. Every Congressman regretted that Mr. Cox was to leave Washington for Constantinople. He had been so long in the house that they could not bear the idea of parting with him. He was appointed in March, 1S83, and soon after he took his departure from New York for the scene of his new labors in the East. The sultan gave him a most cordial reception, and it is certain that he made a most favorable impression upon the Turkish court. He cleared up many diplomatic tangles, and the relations of the United States and Turkey were never more friendly. At length Mr. Cox wearied of the Orient, resigned, came home and easily resumed his place In congress. "I yearned for the society of you gentlemen," he said in one of his speeches after his return, and the good natured laugh which followed showed that the yearning was mutual His greatest success was to come. Almost alone he extracted his party from an absurd position in regard to the admission of ha now states, and wqo.w many friends that mmlSk TT his tour through Montana, Washington and the Dakota was a continued ovation. From Docember, 1857, to March, 18S9, sure about kit years, he was continuously in congress, and only Judge Kelley and Sam Randall, of Pennsylvania, outranked him In continuous service. His nickname of "Sun set Cox" may have been given in consequence of bis initials, "3. S.," but iu first application was suoti after the publica.'ion la hi paper, The Statesman, of Columbus, U., May 1U, lso3, of a aopuotnorlcai description of a sunset, beginning as follows: ORXAT OLD SVN8ET. What a atormf ill sunset was that of last night! ilow glorious the storm, and how splendid the set. Uut of the sua ! We do not remember e r to have seen the like on our round globe. The scene opened In the west, with a wbolu horizon full of golden luterpenetratlng luster, wulcn colored me foliage and brightened every object In Us own rich dyes The colors grew deeper aud richer, until the golden luster was transformed Into a storm cloud, full of finest lightning, which leaped In dazzling slgsugs all round and over the city. The wind aroad with fury, the slender shrubs and giant trees made obeisance to its majesty. Some even snapped before 1U force The strawberry beds and grass plots "turned up their whites" to tee Zephyrus march by. ' As the rain came, and the pools formed, and the rutiers hurried away, thunder roared grandly, and the fire bells caught the excitement and rung with hearty chorus The south and east received the copious showers, and the west all at once brightened up in a long, polished belt of azure, worthy of a Sicilian sky. Presently a cloud appeared In the azure belt. In the form of a castellated city. It became more vivid, revealing strange forms of peerless fanes and alabaster temples, and glories rare and grand In this mundane sphere. It reminds us of Wordsworth's splendid verse in his "Excursion:" The appearance Instantaneously disclosed Was of a mighty city, boldly say A wilderness of buildings, sinking far And self withdrawn into a wondrous depth. Far sinking into spleudor without end! Mr. Cox's first speech In congress attract-sd much attention, and his address late in 1802, when he described a brother congressman as flying from the field of Bull Run hanging to the tail of a stampeded steer, "like AnchLws borne from burning Troy on the shoulders of JEueas," .made a nation laugh in spite of its sorrow. In this same speech he summed up the Missouri controversy of the time in such an admirable and humorous style that it was at ouce accepted as correct by tho public. This was the speech iu which he told how Fremont's greatness "was blasted by the consuming torrent of 'Blair's Rhetoric' "that being the title of a popular school book of the time. One of his last speeches was on tho fisheries' and fish commission, in which he said: Mr. Speaker, there never was an interest in this country so cared for by the government as this of fish. Our first efforts, at least in New England, began with flth. When our ancestors I refer to New England, where I was educated when our ancestors went to King James for a charter to go across the seas ami colonize Massachusetts,' the kiug asked the Puritans: "What Is your object? What do you iutend?" Their answer was: "To worship Uod and catch fish!" Laughter Then the kins rejoined: "I give you the charter. Fore Gad! It is the apostles' own calling!" Renewed laughter. Why, sir, even In the early churches of New England the early and pious Puritans used to sing: Ye monsters of the bubbling deep, Your Maker's name upraise; Up from tho sands, ye codlings, peep, And wag your tails always. Laughter aud applause. So that In early New England the cure aud care of fish was concomitant with commerce, liberty and sanctity. In lutor times New England has obtained concessional enactments giving free salt for her fish, while tho miserable man in Chicago cannot get free salt for his pork. Laughter. Congress has always had a kindly word for tho fishermen. For many decades It gave bounties at so much per cod. These fishermen have not become less tenacious of their rights since the bounty ceased. They are a power in numbers and Influence. They number a million or more of men constantly engaged in their hardy and hazardous occupation. Their calling is associated at the present time with some curious wriggling in diplomacy. Laughter. But wherever they are, and wherever they adventure, they should be cared for by the fostering arm of the government The main object of this bill, sir, is not to assist the fishermen so much as the consumers of fish. It would send out the seed broadcast that food harvests may grow in all the waters of this land. I trust there will be nothing done here to impair the usefulness of this bureau. I trust, as tliU bill takes no money out of the treasury, that no further objection will be made to Its passage; that the president may bo able to select a good, practical man of science and energy, whether he be a Democrat or not, to occupy and honor the position. I am not sure but that there may be found some good, scientific I)emocrat in this country to administer this office. Laughter. All the sciences cannot be monopolized by the He-publican party. There may be a Democrat discovered with the qualities of a good, scientific fisherman. The president will find him. The president himself Is somewhat of au expert in that line. Laughter. The last letter written by Mr. Cox referred to an engagement to lecture on the Yellowstone country before the Steckler association of New York city; it was to Julius Har burger, president of the association, and ran thus: i . New Yorx, Sept. 6, 1889. Dear Friend After your work is done to-night come around to my house and see me. I am down sick with a malarial fever, and have been since we fixed our lecture. I have tried and medicated, etc., in hope to be well for the 10th inst. Perhaps I may fail. Come and let me talk it over. It will be a great disappointment to me if I can't get up in time. Yours, 8. S. Cox. Four evenings later, at 8:30 p. m., the very time he should have been before the club, he breathed his last. The immediate cause of his death was peritonitis. His wife, who sur vives him, was Miss Beecher, of Muskingum, O., an heiress and a very intellectual woman. They bad no children. MaJ. William Warner. William Warner, who is spoken of as suc cessor to Corporal Tanner, commissioner of pensions, was born in Kansas City in 1841. His childhood was not spent among the scenes of border warfare which took place there between the Pro-Slavery and Free Soil parties. He was brcughtupand began his education in Wisconsin. For a time he was a student in the Law- maj. wm. WARNER. renc8 uniVersity of that state, but was graduated at the University of Michigan. He studied law, but spent three and a half years between '01 and '65 in the Union army as a soldier in the Thirty-third and Forty-fourth Wisconsin Volunteer infantry. After serving with sufficient distinction to come out of the war a major, in the spring of 1867 he was elected city attorney of Kansas City, and four years later was chosen mayor of that place, and presidential elector on the Grant ticket in 1872. Seven years ago he was appointed state attorney for the western district of Missouri Maj. Warner went to tho Forty-ninth congress from Missouri as a Republican. He was re-elected. In the fall of 13S8 be was elected commander-in-chief of the Grand Army of the Republic. .

One of the IVHflu coast steamer I ,,n mandod by a handsome young womuu, who was Uirn In Albany, Ore., in 115, where he lived until a short time tx'fore her marrit; with Charles Hill, in IS33. Mrs. Minnie Hill Is a handsome brunette, about 15'- fevt in height and weighs about 140 kuiuI. At the time of their marriuge Mr. HiD was purser of the steamer Joseph Kellogg. He remained in this ixmUiou for three years, bis wife helping him iu his work. They lived economically and succeeded in saving 11,000, with which they purchased an old schooner and converted her into a trailing boot, putting a small engine Into her. Mrs. Hill had studied navigation, ami while helping her husband had gained a thorough knowledge of the Columbia and Willametti rivors. She next took out a second class master's license and easily passed her examination. In December, 1886, Mr. Hill obtained an engineer's license for the steamer Minnie Hill to run from Portland to Astoria, a distance of 110 miles. A stock of goods was then bought on credit and they started trading business at the various points on the Columbia river. Mr. and Mrs. Hill were very successful in their venture. In the first year they paid otT all their debts, aud In tne second year their carrying trade had assumed such proportions that they were obliged to purchase a larger steamer, for which they paid f.1,000. Nov. SO, IS87, Mrs. Hill applied for and was granted a master's and pilot's license. That same CAPT. minnie hill, day she entered on her duties as commander of their new vessel, the Clatsnf Chief, and her husband went on as engineer. Finding it profitable to brauch out aud take iu more territory, they shipped a larger stock of goods, and in auother year their fortuno was established. Cnpt. Minnie Hill won the heart of every one by her happy disposition, her kindly heart and charming manners; her husband was just as well liked for his upright and manly qualities. This couple and their trading were known all over the Columbia aud Willametti rivers. In another year they bought the steamer Gen. Newde for $7,.'i()0. She is 111.5 feet in length, 20.5 feet beam and has a depth of hold of 5 feet. Their business is succeeding better than ever, and thoy now nearly carry every article that can t found in a general merchandise store. Mr. Hill runs the lower deck, where he attends to the men's wants and the captain takes care of the women on the upper deck, and is said to be bu excellent hand at making a shrewd bargain. Mrs. Hill steers aud her husband gallantly responds to the bells, and "goes ahead" or "slows down" as she orders, and thore is no happier couplo. Their home is in Portland, where it is said they have accumulated property to the amount of about ti,000. THE RECENT STORM. How the Water Was Ilenped i:p All Along the Atlantic Seaboard. Those who read tho story and have seen the pictures of tho great Conoinaugh flood have a pood idea of tho creat power of wa ter, and a renewed illustration of this power is iurnisneu oy me storm nuu-u i:oiiny created so much devastation all along the Atlantic coast. When the sun and the moon pulled together and attracted the earth's wa A REMNANT OF THE MARINE RAILROAD. ter uuto themselves, the water, so to speak, began to hump Itself, and then the wind came along, causing a swell. Thus the waves reared themselves higher up on the shore than for many years before, and swept away board walks, bathing houses, cottages, and damaged hotels and railroads all along the New Jersey coast, and at Atlantic City In particular they wrought great havoc. At Coney Island they curled themselves up and swept over to the Brighton Beach track and flooded the course. BATllINO HOUSE At MANHATTAN BEACH. At Manhattan Beach thev nlurnl hnh with -rft j the bathing house, as will be seen from the illustration, ana twisted up the rails of tho Marine railroad said to be the shortest and most profitable road in the world.

The coal mining business in La Salle is just the same ra it has been only a ilttle more so. The miners are wllllog todo the same work they did last year on a Deduction of cents per ton.
