Prof. E. D. Adams Shows Influence of
Civil War on English People;
Uses "Punch" Illustrations
"The victory of the North in the
American Civil War was a victory for
democracy in England," said Prof. E.
D. Adams in the lecture given in the
Natural Science auditorium at 8
o'clock last evening. "At that time
America was the only great democracy.
Had the North lost, democracy would
have stood condemned of inefficiency,
and its progress in England retarded
for a long time."
Taking the cartoons from London
Punch to illustrate his talk, Profesor
Adams traced the changes in the at-
titude of the aristocratic, governing
class in England towards the Ameri-
can conflict. Punch, he explained,
was chosen because it was the leading
"humorous, political, pictorial news-
paper" of the day and accurately re-
flected the opinions of the ruling class.
Trace Lincoln Portraits
The earlier cartoons in Punch show
Lincoln as a silly incompetant, and
anticipate an early victory for the
southern cause. As the war goes on
the pictures change, the face of Lin-
coln becomes more strong, even'
despotic. In all the cartoons, even up
to the end, a northern victory is rated
as impossible. l
Professor Adams praised the neutral
stand of the English government dur-
ing the war. He pointed out that it
had been a characteristic of the Eng-
lish to stand by their word when once
it has been given. This, he explained,
was especially praiseworthy on thec
part of the government at that time,
since they could not have been ignor-
