THE GARDEN ISLAND TUESDAY, DECEMBER 5. 1916

keep office give the people what
tliey want, hut statesmen give the
people what they ought to have.
The politician the victim of the
lnt lohhyist, and the latest club
lifto.l ly the Jiiggest niVh. Rulers
arc often nfrnid of criminal in
Septcniher who are going to vote in
November. Keeping the things that
are brought by blood means often
that Mood may be necessary for
preserving. Character is athletic.
Christ was no spineless pacifist.
And the genius of God's universe is
the genius of Christianity. In the
ideal commonwealth the fittest of
souls survive. The Christian lift? is
first a school for learners, second a
race and goal for aspirants, but
a conflict. Heaven is a height to
which we climb round by round,
battle by battle, and struggle to
ward victory. . And such struggle
also marks the growth of national
life. Think you William Lloyd
Garrison was right, when after Lin
coln's Emancipation Proclamation,
ho called the members of his anti
slavery society together, saying,
our work is done, it only remains
for mo to die. Gone - the physical
fetters, yes. Hut were there no
mental fetters to be stricken off?
Were there no industrial lxmds to
be broken? Were there no prison
doors of ignorance and superstition
to be broken down? Ignoble and
untrustworthy that idea of lite here
or hereafter that is based upon the
idea of passive peace and has no
noble note of struggle beyond. So
long as men are ignorant and super
stitious, selfish and cruel, we must
give blows ami take t'cni. For a
strong man to look toward a poor
man's little ewe lamb, and say, "I
want it, and I will kill him and
take it," that is murder. I am not
one of those who think you can
multiply that transaction by a mil
lion and call it war. In a normal
universe the victory of that theory
would mean the destruction of just
ice, law and liberty. Life would
not be worth living. Men would
soon return to the bia.-ls, homing
each other in a fight around the
fodder. The loss of.the faith that
liberty is more that life would mean
the loss of everything our fathers
gained. Unless we can keep faith
in God and the eternal principles of
our heroic fathers, the. ruin of this
country is in sight. That loss will
rob the library of its wisdom, poli
ties of its ethics, would take the
justice out of the codes, lilierty out
of the constitution, reverence from
religion, would rob our children of!
their hope, and our civilization of
any future. The people of this
country must not forswear the faith
of their fathers. Four things arc
worth infinitely more than life,
lilerty, truth, the rights of the poor
man and the little nation, and the
laws of justice and brotherhood. Let
us pray that the future victory of
democracy and of liberty in this
Republic will be the sublimest vic
tory in the annals of time.
