Brief ref- P erence is made elsewhere in the » News to some of the multitude of attractions secured for great Chautauqua. New nan's •<-4 l<’Hl*tm*:iiU’K WAUI). Frederick Warde. We feel that an introduction, or 'an attempted eulogy of this— America’s foremost orator-actor, is a waste of space and time. We know that no man, woman, or child who lias heard of the stage is not familiar with this man, who is as closely identified with Shakes peare as Joe Jefferson was with Hip Van Winkle. His lecture is the result of a life time given to the study of the over interesting, forever great peer of all English writers. Frederick Warde was secured at great cost and was considered too expensive for all Fhautauquas in the South save Newnan and one city in Tex as from where he comes to us. but our directors have not hesitated to take the best to lie had. Believing our people would support this noble undertaking they have work ed untiringly and ever prompted by tiie motto, “not better than the l>est, but better than the rest. ’' And in this connection we would state that no words of praise are misplaced commending the work of Mr. B. T. Thompson and his corps of young men assistant-; for their untiring, uncompensated ser ious. i.ou .1. IlHAveil AMI*. vices in behalf of our great ('lean tauqua. The tributes and editorial com ments from the best play houses and leading dailies are in numerable and of the highest order and dem onstrate the popularity of the lec ture and the esteem in which Mr. Warde is held as an actor, scholar and orator. Champ Clark. Dear to us because of his friend ly [relationship to his colleague, our own ! |Chas. Adamson, who in troduces him Tuesday morning, 25th, when he delivers his famous lecture, “Picturesque Public Men” and on Wednesday night when we hear him in “The United States of America in the Twentieth Dentil ry.” Clark is not only leader of the minority party of the present House, but he is the foremost dem ocrat and the man most feared and respected by the Republicans. Clark was permanent chairman at the last national convention at St. bonis, the convention that nomi nated Parker for President. Ad amson said he had rather hear him than any man speaking the Kng- lish language. Missouri has every reason to be proud of his oratorical achievements. During his services in Congress he has attracted more attention to his state and knocked out bigger niches in the temple of fame as an orator than anv man many which set the entire nation talking; he has delivered speeches in Congress which were published in the papers of foreign lands; hr has pronounced orations which are classed |l>y competent authorities as among the world’s best. Mr. Clark’s Tammany speech attracted more attention than did Webster’s famous speech on “The banding of the Pilgrims”, Dec. 22, IS20,and gave him instantly a na tional fame as an orator. The plain, 1>I mil "way in which he put the truth caused the Hast to won der at his courage. The hit he made with this speech was no acci dent for he has gone on eclipsing this effort almost every year since. His speech on the Cuban question, delivered in Congress, was copied in more languages than even a well educated man knows. It was cop ied in 22 papers in France alone. lands, bis varied experiences as and their Cure.” Happy is the newspaper reporter, his early life man who finds liis mission in the among the Indians, his keen sense world.
