THE GARDEN ISLAND. TUESDAY JULY 11. 1916 -
Oratory On Fourth

'til and bring to fruit in the

Dpted land: an intelligent un-
fistanding of what it means to

D( what they paid that we who have

freedom and the privileges which
make life full of joy and oppor

Y cast their lives into the nations

bust patriotism of adult years.
Speaking of royal women, they
should all have the ballot. Read
ers of the Independent have lately
"For the safety of the nation
Let the women have the vote,
hor the hand that recks the
Will never rock the boat."
Mentioning the Independent
t here is something else from a re
5 cent issue, a cartoon, Mr. Roose
, velt in the guise of a wild hunter
always recognizable under any dis
guise, holding a pistol at the brain
of an old dilapidated bull moose
saying "goodbye old fellow, this
hurts me a great deal more than it
will hurt vou."
our attention is now called to
the destination between two im
portant words liberty and license
American citizens might become
restive under the exacting systems
of certain foreign countries where
individual liberties seem in unre
sonaUe ways to be curtailed. While
such policies of repression have
been cairied to unwise extremes
one can still appreciate advantages
that up to a certain point may be
derived from them. And if those
lands i.f stringent lequirements
should cvei dispense with a part
of their excessstrin ency we might
wish that such excess be sent over
to us to be used in bracing some
of our lax discipline, I have read
that a fresh immigrant from one
of those burden-binding lands be
gan on his arrival in New York to
throw stones at windows, on the
plea that every one was at liberty
to do as he liked in a free country;
and this is a sample of misdemean
or whose perpetrators are not limit
ed to green immigrants.
There has been lacking in too
many American minds a proper
distinction between the exercise
of liberty and license. Liberty has
been defined as the privilege and
the will to do right; license the
privilege and will to do as one
pleases whether it be right or
wrong. The fact with manv is
that their individualism has gone
slightly crazy, witness former in
sane celebrations on the 4th o
July, when from Maine to Cali
fomia costly conflagrations accom
panied disastrous maiming of hu
man bodies and loss of human
lives, and all partially condoned
because they comprised a part o
our birthday jubilations. Other
forms of raw license become rife
during political campaigns and in
times of strife between labor and
capital. We will, however, begrate
ful in the belief that conditions
are bettering and that the next
generation will show marked de
crease in all forms of abnormal
outbreak because more of positive
authority wisely exercised shall
hold swav in the maintenance o
Obedience to law is a lesson that
has to be learned. The slack pres
sure upon us of just such authori
tv, has allowed flood-gates of un
restrained and unripe utterance to
open in many places and upon
many matters of important public
concern. Here is no plea for nar
rowuess or bigotry, nor for love
of country of a hard and exacting
kind. But whenever flabbiness ex
ists where vertebrae belong there
decay begins. Because a nation
like ours is invested in the people.
not in an emperor, is no reason
why its government should be ad
ministered with any less decisive
Ixdulsc me a final moment in'
which to review what has been
said that we may see what direc
tion our course is taking.
The Declaration o f Indepen
dence and the Constitution of the
United States are the foundation
stones of preparedness for an en
during national life. The systemat
ic training in public schools, con
tinuing from childhood to maturi
ty, training in t h e knowledge
and love of our country, iti mo
mentous past, its more glorious
prospects, its principles, its duties
incumbent upon every citizen, its
purpose for truth and right; this
systematic training will develop a
whole-hearted devotion and estab
lish a rock-ribbed Preparedness
that shall be always ready, and
therefore will not have to sud
denly get ready, to adequately
cope with any emergency.that mav
arise Lastly, the careful cultivat
ing in all native American minds
and the wise fostering in all alien
minds, who come to find homes
within our hospitable shores, ot a
well-marked boundary line be
tween liberty and license, how the
one constructs and the other des
troys, and the imperatiye med of
cleaving wholly to the one and
forsakidg utterly the other, these
will crown all efforts in creating
and maintaining a spirit of perpe
tual Preparedness that shall stand
with exalted purpose, heroic cour
age, and be equipped with every
needful weapon to successfully de
fend an endeared land against all
forms of decay within and assault
