Of Gov. Butler's message the Chicago News says : "If some graduate fresh from Harvard had been elected instead of Gen. Butler the young collegian would have carefully consulted with all his uncles and his cousins and his aunts as to what it was safe for him to say. Gen. Butler labors under no such embarrassment. He has given us the youngest, sappiest, freshest, greenest message this country has read for many a day." "He gives Harvard students a sly kick, which they will probably find occasion to return with interest," says the N. Y. Herald.
