MARBLE, MANTON

Editor, author, diplomat; b. Worcester, Mass., Nov.
16, 1834; s. Joel and Nancy Chapin (Coes) Marble (she
was a descendant of Thaddeus Chapin and Lucy Whit-
ney; he a descendant of Samuel and Freegrace Marble,
after whom Marble Ridge was named, near Andover,
Mass.), and grandson of Deacon Solomon Marble (at
Bunker Hill, Saratoga, Yorktown) and Jerusha (Green-
wood) Marble, both of Milbury, Mass.; ed. chiefly by
father, grad. Aloany Acad., 1853, Univ. of Rochester,
18o5. Seven years' staff service with Boston and N. Y.
journals (under William Cullen Bryant, 1858-1860;
Journey to Red River and Beyond, 1859; N. Y. World
under Mr. Spalding, 1860-1862); then, 1862-1876, owner
and editor N. Y. World, through War and Reconstruc-
tion periods. Chm'n Exec. Com. Nat. Dem. Com., 1864.
Gave early publicity in U. S. to writings of Herbert
fapencer (e. g.), on maintenance of justice as chief,
if not sole, legitimate domestic function of Gov't
wielding coercive power of whole body of citizens; in
opposition to Peace-Democrats, held that, after Fort
Sumter, war was unavoidable for resisting disruption
of Union and subversion of its Constitution; opposed
exorbitance of exec, power, usurpings of ungranted
power as likewise its subversion; opposed warping
Custom House taxation, touching all, into profit ma-
chines of a few; opposed Federal income tax-
ing as direct taxes faithless to an original com-
promise, and false to actual terms of the Constitution;
opposed greenbacks (as ever-injurious substitute for
money), also doubling the cost of the waT then wag-
ing, and repeating our own calamitous colonial ex-
perience which had caused the shaping of the Consti-
tution to make such issues lawless; opposed negro
suffrage, and impeachment of Pres. Johnson. Ob-
structing a partisan misuse for partisan advantage, of
issues so momentous, he urged and supported pro-
cedures consummated in the Washington Treaty,
Geneva Arbitration, Alabama Award, deeming explicit
avowal of regret from the source over the seas of our
greatest injury to be the best ending of old antago-
nisms and only heginning of subsequent peace. Began
that assault against Tweed Ring which finally purged
city gov't for a season and elected Samuel J. Tilden
Gov. of N. Y.; wrote Syracuse, N. Y., Dem. State plat-
form, 1874, and the St. Louis Nat. Dem. platform
1876, upon which Mr. Tilden stood for Gov. of N Y
and Presidency of U. S.; similar platform of 1884 upon
which Mr. Cleveland stood for Presidency, and a
pamphlet, 1878, disclosing that for the Electoral
Comm'n law. Mr. Tilden was not responsible. Special
envoy sent by Pres. Cleveland, 1885, to gov'ts of Great
Britain, France, Germany, and after conferences with
Prince Bismarck, with MM. Freycinet, Carnot, and
with Cernuschi, the classic authority upon internat.
bimetallism, and with Mr. Goschen, Lord Iddesleigh
and Mr. Gladstone, ascertained and advised the Presi-

dent that resumption of free bimetallic coinage by
any European power was conditioned srine qua non
upon 'British cooperation, which neither Tory nor
Liberal ministries were prepared for (Mr. Gladstone

that our own U. S. Treasury purchases of silver
should cease. Author: A Letter to Abraham Lincoln,

The poem immediately attracted the attention of both
hemispheres. From boyhood wrote for magazines and
newspapers and found entrance to the best Eastern
publications, but up to the appearance of "The Man
with the Hoe" his writings had not attracted any con-
siderable attention. This poem called out an extra-
ordinary volume of comment; some characterizing it
as "an insult to labor" and others as "a psalm of
labor" and "the battle-cry of the next thousand years."
It was copied throughout the world and translated
