"Why, yer uythln' but an Eye- tallan Innnygrnntl" declared his tormentor, whereupon the dark- eyed Neapolitan lad replied, "Yes, and so was Christopher Colum- feus. He was the first one and If he hadn't crossed the Atlantic, why then there wouldn't have been any America." Now, Giovanni may not have been right In that last statement. But he was correct In calling Christopher Columbus the "flrst Italian immigrant to America." He might have added that Columbus was also the first of a number of Italians who played an important part In American history and whose name and fame It seems appropriate to recall as October 12 (Columbus day) approaches. As for the other "immigrants" who accompanied him on his historic first voyage we know that there were 120 of them—90 seamen and 30 others, Including royal officials, pilots, a grand constable, an archivist, an interpreter, a physician, servants, domestics and cabin boys—but history has preserved the names of only a few. There was Juan do la Cosa, owner and commander of Columbus' flagship, the Santa Maria; there was Martin Alonso Pinzon, commander of the Pintn, one of whose two pilots was his younger brother, Francisco; there was Vincente Yanes I'inxon, youngest brother and commander of the Nina, whose pilot was her owner, Pero Alonso Nino; and finally there was the Interpreter, Luis de Torres, a converted Jew. On his second voyage, he was accompanied by 1,000 men, Including his brother, Diego; on his third voyage he took 200 men and on his fourth, 150. This last journey was shared by two of his relatives, his brother, Bartholomew, and his son, Ferdinand, now a lad of fourteen. Later his elder son, Diego, would preside over the Antilles as governor and admiral with his residence in Espanola (I-Inytl), so altogether five Italians named Columbus were among the flrst "immigrants" to the shores of the New World. If Christopher Columbus, the "discoverer of America," was destined never to set foot on the mainland of North America, at least a fellow- townsman of his would be credited with being the first white man to do it. (That Is, If we disregard the half-legendary tale that Lief Ericsson and his Viking adventurers, after reaching Greenland, sailed on, entered the St. Lawrence river and landed on its shores which they called Vinland). But the man who made the first authenticated landfall on continental .North America was Giovanni Cabato, or Cabota, born in Genoa in 1450, first a sailor out of Venice and then a captain in the employ of the Merchant-Venturers of Bristol, England, in 1400. In that year King Henry VII gave him "full and free authoritie, leave, and power, to sayle to all partes, Countreys, and Seas, of the East, of the West and of the North, also licence to set up Our banners and ensignes in every village, towne, cnstel, yle, or main lande, of them newly founde." So in the spring of 1497 John Cabot (his Italian name Anglicized to conform to his new allegiance) sailed from Bristol In the little ship Matthew with a crew of 18. His son, Sebastian, may or may not have accompanied him—historians are not certain as to that. But they do know that on June 24, 1497, Cabot reached the shores of North America somewhere between the modern city of Halifax and Hudson strait and, landing there, planted the flag of England, a flag which was destined to wave over parts of that continent for the next 400 years. The next year John Cabot sailed again for America with four ships—and Into oblivion. What became of him no one ever learned. His son, Sebastian, claimed that he himself coasted along Greenland, seeking the fabled Northwest Passage to India until he was forced to turn back by quantities of ice afloat In the northern sea. Then he seems to have steered a southerly course for Newfoundland, continued down to the Virginia capes and perhaps went as far as Florida. He captured a few natives to take back to England with him but otherwise his voyage was unprofitable. In 1544 Sebastian made a map of the world which gave a good idea of the coasts of North America from Labrador to Florida and which showed pretty accurately where the Mississippi river enters the Gulf of Mexico. (Lost for nearly three centuries, this map was discovered In Germany in 1855 and is now in the National library in Paris). In 1548 he switched allegiance again and went to England, where the youthful King Kdward VI gave him a pension, which was renewed by King Mary. He died In 1557, a citizen of London and governor of the Muscovy com- BasJioti.ef MarquetteBla Chicago. pany. It would have been appropriatae If the south ern continent discovered by Christopher Coluiu bus had beeen named Columbia and the northern one Cabotia, in honor of the Italian who landed there in 1497. How, then, did the name of America become attached to both? The fact Is It was named for another "Italian immigrant," a certain Amerigo or Ainericus Vespucci. Born in Florence, Italy, in 1451, Vespucci drifted to Spain and in 1490 he visited Kspunola and the mainland of South America with the Spaniard, Ojeda, In a search for pearls. There is even reason to believe that he may have reached the southern continent before Columbus did and It Is certain that he was the first to realize that this continent, which he called Mundus Novus (New World) In a letter to a friend, was in reality a New World, wholly distinct from Asia. It BO happened that at St. Die in the Vosges mountains of France there was a little collegiate institution which was both a center of geograph- <"il learning and the owner of a new printing press, then something of a novelty in Europe. Two of its faculty, Mathias Ringman and Martin Waldseemuller, were busy with a new edition of Ptolemy's "Geographia." Before publishing it, however, they printed an essay called "Cosmo- graphlae Introducto" or an "Introductory geography," to which they added Vespucci's letter. In this essay, published In May 1507, Waldsee- muller wrote "And the fourth part of the world having been discovered by Americus, it may be called Amerlge, that Is, the land of Americus,-or America." Colombo, Cabato (or Cabota), Vespucci—they were the leading "Italian Immigrants" In the flrst era of New -World exploration. Another was to Join the little band of Immortals when the French began penetrating the Interior of the northern continent. He was Henri de Tontl, born about 1G50, the son of Lorenzo Tontl, a banker of Naples, who, because of the political disturbances in that city, had taken refuge in France. When the younger Tontl reached the age o eighteen, he entered the military service o France as a cadet and continued thus for a year Next he served for four years as a midshipman at Marseilles and Toulon, taking part in fou campaigns on ships of war and three in galleys Then he became a lieutenant of horse and a cap tain at Messina. During a battle at Libisso his, right hand was torn away by a grenade and he was taken prisoner. Sent to Metasse, he was held a prisoner for six months before being ex changed for the governor's son. After a visit to France he returned to Sicily as a volunteer In the galleys but when the troops were discharged Tonti, having no other occupation, returned to Paris. There he was Introduced to Robert Cavelier, Sleur De La Salle, who was dreaming of a vast empire to be called New France in North America. When La Salle sailed for America in 1678 Tonti accompanied him as his lieutenant and from that time on until the death of the great French explorer and colonizer the Italian's loyalty to his captain is one of tl»e brightest stories In American history. After the death of La Salle In 1687, Tonti continued in command at Fort St. Louis, which La Salle had built on Starved Rock in Illinois, and there he carried on a profitable fur trade for several years. In 1702 he was ordered to join D'lb- erville In Lower Louisiana and Ibervllle sent him to Mobile to win the allegiance of the Chlckasaw Indians to the French. He died of the yellow fever there In 1704. According to one hlstorlap "Tontl may be called the Father of Louisiana, being the flrst man after La Salle to urge the settleriftnt of the lower Mississippi. It was through him that English control of that part of our country was postponed for over a hundred years, or until the purchase of Louisiana. France obtained, under Providence, the guardianship of Louisiana, not, ns It proved, for its own benefit, but rather as a trustee for the Infant nation by which it was one day to be Inherited." If Henri de Toutl was an Importan' factor In securing the Mississippi valley for this infant nation, then It owes an even greater debt of gratitude to another "Italian Immigrant" who helped kopp tlint inland empire under the American flag He was Francesco Vigo, born Dec-ember 8, 1747, at Munilovi In the Italian Piedmont, the son of Mntteo and Maria Maddulena Vigo. As a youth Vigo enlisted In the Spanish army for service In the colonies as a muleteer. Sent first to Havana, Cuba, his first appearance on American soil was In New Orleans as a "fusllero" In the militia of the Spanish colony of Louisiana. Next he became a member of a body of irregular troops and made his way up the Mississippi to St.. Louis, where he became fhe secret partner of Don Fernando de Leyba, Spanish governor of Upper Louisiana, In the fur trade. When George Rogers Clark captured Kuskas kia from the British in 1778 Vigo, known now as "the Spanish merchant," was one of the wealthiest men In the whole Mississippi valley. He became Clark's friend and when Clark needed 3 spy to find out the strength of the garrison at Vineennes before he dared attack that post, Vigo made the dangerous journey for him and brousht Sebastian. Cabot's Map of 1544 back the necessary information. More than that, he supplied the money needed for the expedition. As a result of Clark's conquests, financed mainly by Vigo, the American peace commissioners at the close of the Revolution, were able to make good their demand that the western boundary of the new republic should be the Mississippi rather than the Allegheny mountains. After the Revolution Vigo made his home in Vineennes and continued to provide money to sustain American credit In the newly won wilderness and to build up a series of trading posts and protected trade routes which would bind the Indians to the American cause. For, like Tontl Vigo had great influence over the red men. But American inertia and ineptness in dealing with the Indians defeated him. When he tried to get back some of the money he had lent Clark and others, both the Virginia authorities and a penurious federal government refused to honor his claims. ^William Henry Harrison, flrst governor of Indiana territory, became Vigo's friend and tried to help get the claims paid, both then and later when he became President. Finally In 1876 the long-pending "Vlgo claims" totaling nearly $50000 were paid by the government to the second generation of his In-laws. Cut they had been too late to save this "Robert Morris of the West" who had labored so mightily in the cause of American Independence, from dying an Impover- Ished, embittered old man.

Isaiah 63:5. PRIMARY TOPIC—God's Best Promise. JUNIOR TOPIC—Isaiah Foretells Jesus' Coming. INTERMEDIATE AND SENIOR TOPIC—What Our Salvation Cost. YOUNG PEOPLE AND ADULT TOPIC—The Suffering Savior. The prophecy of Isaiah is the grand center of the Old Testament. It pictures the Servant of Jehovah with great wisdom gloriously executing the divine purpose of redemption at the cost of great suffering. I. The Servant's Triumph (Is. 52; 13-15). The Servant here mean? the coming Messiah (42:1). 1. His wisdom (v. 13). He will deal prudently for his name Is Counsellor (9:0). He was filled with the spirit of wisdom and understanding (11:2). 2. He shall be exalted and extolled (v. 13). Being the mighty God, even Immaniiel, Jehovah has highly exalted him and given him a name which is above every name (Phil. 2:0). 3. The appearance of the Servant CV. 14). Because of his marred visage, the Jews, who looked for outward signs of royalty and worldly splendor, were not attracted to him. II. The Servant Despised and Rejected (53:1-3). 1. The unbelief of the Jews (v. 1). They despised the words of the prophet and even failed to recognize the hand of the Lord in the miracles which ho wrought. 2. The origin of the Servant (v. 2). He sprang out of a stump of Judaism. The sad condition of the people at that time is expressed by "dry corn." He came among his own and they apprehended him not. There was nothing extraordinary about his personal appearance. Regal splendor was entirely absent. 3. A man of sorrows (v. 3). As the Sin-bearer of the world he suffered untold sorrows. The primary cause of his grief was their contemptuous rejection of him. III. The Vicarious Suffering of the Servant (53:4-0). 1. His griefs and sorrows were ours. Though innocent, he was loaded down with disease and pain; not his, but ours. This awful suffering was looked upon by the world as occasioned by sin. "We ,did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted." 2. He was beaten for us (v. 5). That which was our due was meted out to him. Notice the four significant words': "wounded,' "bruised," "despised," "stripes." Thf word "our" shows that his suffer Ings were vicarious. The full mean ing of the cross is comprehended In these words. 3. Tlie reason (v. 0). All humanity, Jews and Gentiles, had gone astray. God had laid on him the~iniquity of us all. The word "laid" literally means "caused to strike upon." He was literally made to be sin for us. IV. The Death of the Servant (53: 7-0). 1. His strange silence (v. 7). He went as a lamb to the slaughter. How unlike the behavior of men who, wlien wrongfully condemned, make a great ado. 2. Unconcern of contemporaries (v. 8). Though dying instead of the picked people, they failed to discern that his suffering was In their stead. V. The Servant's Ultimate Victory (vv. 10:12). Ills suffering expressed the divine will (v. 10). The Lord himself laid this burden upon Christ. He was delivered according to the determined counsel and foreknowledge of God. God took delight In his sufferings, because through them his law was vindicate*! and through them redemption was accomplished. 2. A spiritual progeny resulted from his death (v. 10). Christ declared, "Kxcept a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it nhid- etli alone." The fundamental law of the universe, which is life out ol death, found supreme expression in Christ's death on the cross. 3. Through death shall come the realization of his fondest hope (v. 11). "He shall see the travail of his soul and shall be satisfied." 4. The divine reward (v. 12). The divine Conqueror shall share the spoils of victory which by a strong arm were secured. Though he took the place of a sinner, it was for the purpose of bearing the sins of many and making intercession for the transgressor. ' VI. The Servant's Suffering Historically Fulfilled (John 19:17-37). When Jesus of Nazareth went forth bearing his cross to Golgotha where they crucified him, the prediction of Isaiah was historical!* realized. of ta «J«er, nnd e llse <l ns money A,, , PMcel »l» ^ iWnl^fSI Th e exhibition J? 11 ** « 3 shows b »t also ""I Pollttai tokens.
