i . . fiAMBETTA. -
Leon Michel Gambetta is the most
conspicuous figure in Europe, unless
we except Bismarck. He has shoWn
himself an orator, statesman, organ
izer and worker. That he is devoted
to France there can be no doubt. That
he is the mend of libertv. as he un-f t
derstands liberty, is true equally. ' He
has for more than ten years played, a
most important part, and m the very
crisis of France in the war with Ger
many, he ... rendered the most efficient
service of all his countrymen.
His parents were foreign, arid he
'was born April 2d, 1838. His father.
is living. Leon was educated in
France.' j In 1860 he was licensed to
practice law, and settled in Fans.
After a few years he became well
known as an eloquent advocate. He
defended several editors, who were
arraigned before the Correctional Tri
bunal. His speech . was very . bold
and eloquent. He attacked the Em
peror, Louis Napoleon, with - exceed-
ing herceness ana audacity, -me
speech produced a great sensation
and made Gambetta not only Well
knowny. but very-popular. In 1869
he was elected to the Legislative
Assembly. He issued an address in
which he declared that he had sprung
from the people and lived for. the
people, and that he wished to secure
a government of all by all, ahd ' that
he was irjeconcilable in his opposition
tb the Empire. The young men of
Paris gave him a splendid banquet,
and this right under the Emperor's
nose. ; lie insisted that the ; Demo
cratic party should be moderate. He
said, in: va published : letter, that
Democracy meant security for all
material ; interests, ! respect tor- pro
perty, guarantee of all ' rights." ' He
opposed the war with Germany. It
was Gambetta who left Paris, in a
balloon after, it was beleaguered by
the Germans. . It was Gambetta who
aroused tie Provinces, who - created
J three large armies in an incredible
short -timeJ they numbering m all
800,000 men It was Gambetta who.
organized, and then negotiated loans
for their maintenance, and infused an
I energy and life and hope that1 were
j marvellous. r-HiB powers asanorgan-
i izer! are acKnowiegcu ,uy s"-. -ins
j surprising and immense.
Gambetta, in France, is recognized
as the great cnampion oi ireeaora.
But this statement is misleading.. His
devotion t& freedom is very unlike the
devotion of an American'f patriot to
freedom. As Eraser s magazine says :
i '. 'But the truth is that - M. Gambetta has
never been a champion of : freedom in and
for itself. ... His watchword is; Get the Re-.
public, with freedom if possible; but by all
means get the ltepuDiic.1 ..a .ur.(

sibly .. misunderstood as to r his t pur
poses in dealing with Germany. He
is anxious for revenge, no doubt, but
it is thought that he will, not ; plunge
into war . merely . to seek i revenge
! "No one sees clearly as he does that the
work bf France for many years to come is
that of national reconstruction,: and it was
he who said at Havre, so long ago as 1872,
that 'niir true revenee is.the recraining of
our hereditery qualities' and the rtfbrmin g
1 In bis 1 Legislative experience he
has , exhibited three u gret . qualities.
He knows how to be silent, he knows
how- to speak t with great effective
ness and eloquence at the Hght time,
and he is a practical' statesman.' 'tn
v "Democracy to-day says: no . longer f All
or nothing.' It says no longer, 'If this
Cfovernment does not give us all we all
want, we will overturn it." fit says 'Let us
proceed! graduallj', : and .not 'take up all
questions at once. The ideal . ws . the end
and not the beginning of the" war.' '' . .. ;
r.;.IIe is opposed to. that sort of equalr
ity' that is 'levelling, t jealous, and.
chimercial," but he favors "the aboli
tion : of everything ' that remains of
bid castes and privileges so that every
capaeityfjof i the nation, ; may have a
fair field." : He is a . strong advocate
off popular education, That ! is h his

to Wiping out the stigma placed upon
France by Germany, in his: recent
speech tb which we referred some days
since, he means, probably, if We may
judge him in" the light of ! other
speeches, that if France, when the
war was; raging,' had ; stood firm and
determined, the . war . would have
had a different ending. It is known
that he was very much disgusted at

which overtook the country." p i
