Wounded By Accidental
Discharge oi His Duty
General Stonewall Jackson was a
kindly man but devotion to duty waa
htB watchword Mo wu? a soldier first
and a considerate gentleman after
wards. For instance, a captain on his
staff had roused his ire more than
once by sins of omission along the
line of duty. Just before the battle
of Gaines' Mill, thc captain's services
wore required to carry an Important j
dispatch, but he could not be found at :
headquarters. An orderly, sent to
search for him, reported he had been
"Wounded!" exclaimed Major El
wood, another member of the staff.
"Why there has been so fighting sinca

Stonewalls beard began to bristle.
"Captain Blank was undoubtedly
wounded by the accidental discharge
of his duty," he snorted.
Thousands of Americans today are

provide for his future and for the

that duty is a weapon of safety ,and

WHAT IS THUM LniERTY?
WctH Still Whining for Tnnking-Up
Privileges-Liberty Not Ijlccnse.
(H. H. Culver, Now York.)
Franklin ll. Giddings, In a r?cent
article in tho Independent, calls the
eighteenth and nineteenth amend
ments "Government by Bullying."
He asks, "Have tho American people
become tired of liberty?" Like the
bar-room disputant, ho confusos lib
erty with license. True liborty ls lib
erty under the law. Said John Jay,
the first Chief Justice of tho United
States, "Nothing but a strong gov
ernment of laws, irresistibly, Irresist
ibly bearing down arbitrary power
and licentiousness can defend lt
(the new govornmont)- against
these two formidable enemies. Lot
it be remembered that civil liberty
consists not in a fight of overy man
to do just as ho pleases, but In an
equal right to all citizens to have,
enjoy and do, In peace, security and
without molestation whatever the
equal and constitutional laws of tho
country admit to be consistent with
the public good."
Liquor Not Consistent With Good.
Prohibition wus an act pf national
self-defense. If prohibition of the
entiro liquor traille is "bullying,"
then prohibition of any part of it is
bullying. So, if Mr. Giddings is con
sistent he would object to tho vari
ous restrictions that have been plac
ed upon tho traffic from time to time.
Saloons have been forbidden to keep
open for certain days and during cer
tain hours. They have boon forbid
den to sell to minors, to habitual
drunkards, to Indians, otc. Had they
obeyed these laws their sales would
have been decreased, and some of
them put out of business. Laws for
bidding more than a certain number
of saloons to each 1,000 inhabitants
have been passed, putting some deal
ers out of business. Local option
has closed thousands ot saloons.
Were these acts "govornmont by bul
lying?" No; they were futile at
tempts to regulate an evil, and tho
persistent dellance of all laws bas
I convinced the American people that
tho liquor trafile cannot be mended,
and, therefore, must be ended.
It ls nauseating to hear opponents
of prohibition talk of liberty as syn
onymous with the license of a class
to ruin manhood, debauch woman
hood and blight childhood. "O, Lib
erty, Liberty, what crimes are com
mitted in thy name!" Hear the pur
turbed Mr. Giddings: "Do wo now
despise all those political principles
that wore sot forth in the Declara
tion of Independence, for which the
War of Independence was fought and
which were formulated in tho earlier
amendments of tho Federal Consti
tution?" Bah! Shucks! Rats! Like
wise, Piffle! As Bob Burdotte said,
"The Declaration of Independence
was not written on a beor keg in a
saloon on a Sunday afternoon, not by
a jug-full!" And roference to the
Federal Constitution is equally inept.
What were the objects which the
framers of the Constitution had In
mind? Its preamble tolls us: "To*
form a moro perfect union, establish
justice, insure domestic tranquility,
provide for the common defense, pro
moto the general wolfare, and secure
tho blessings of liberty to ourselves
and our posterity."
"To form a more perfect union."
We have a moro perfect union since
slavory was abolished. And we will
have a still moro perfect union with
tho liquor trafile outlawed from
ocean to ocoan.
"To establish Justice." By brib
ery, by intimidation, by forcing sa
loons into unwilling commun it los, by
trickery of every kind, the liquor
