THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE.
WHEN In the Course of human eventa, It become nereaaarr for one people to dliiolve thepolltleal bands which
have connected them with another, and to naanme anionic the powers of the earth, theseparnteandeqnal station
, to which the Laws of Natnre and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind
requires that they should declare the causes which Impel them to the separation, We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unallen-
j able niuhtN, that amount these are Lite, Liberty and the pursuit, of Happiness. That to secure these rlahts,
OoTernmr-ti are Instituted anions Men, derlvlna; their Just powers from the consent of the itoverned,-
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, It Is the Illfcht of the People to
alter or to abolish' It, and to Institute new Government, Iaylne Its foundation on such principles and orsran
IkIbk Its powers in suoh form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety nnd Happiness, Pru-
' dence, Indeed. will dictate that Governments lono; established should not be chaniced for Unlit and tran
sient canaes and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while
evils are snfferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. Bat
when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing Invariably the same Object evinces a design to re-
dace them under absolute Despotism, It Is their right, It Is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to
provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient snfiernnce of these Colonies! and
1 snch Is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history
I of the present King of Great Britain Is n history of repeated Injuries and usurpations, all having In direct
object the establishment of an absolute. Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to
candid world, lie has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the. public good,
tie has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of Immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspended la
their operation till his Assent should be obtained, and when so suspended, he has utterly negleoted to at
tend to them He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, un
less those people would relinquish the right of Representation In the Legislature, a right inestimable to
them nnd formidable to tyrants only. He has called together leglslrtlve bodies at places unusual, uncom
fortable, and distant from the depository of their public Hecorda, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them Into
compliance with his measures. He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with
manly firmness his Invasions on the rights of tle people. He has refused for a long time, after such disso
lutions, to cause others to be elected) whereby the Legislative powers, Incapable of Annihilation, have re
turned to the People at large for their exercise) the State remaining In the mean time exposed to all the dan
gers of Invasion1 from without, nnd convulsions within. He has endeavoured to prevent the population of
" these Stalest for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalisation of Foreigners) refusing to pass oth
ers to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands. He
has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing bis Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary pow
erslie has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their ofllces, and the amount and
payment of their salaries. He baa erected n multitude of New Offices, und sent hither swarms of Officers to
hnrruss our People, and eat out their substance. He has kept among us. In times of peace, Standing Armies
without the Consent of oar legislatures. He has affected to render the Military Independent of and supe
rior to the Civil power. He has combined with others to subject us ton Jurisdiction foreign to our consti
tution, nnd uuacknowlcdged by ourlawsi giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation. For

Is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleut the works of death, desolation
and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled lit the moat barba
rous nges, and totally unworthy tho Head of a civilised nation, He has constrained our fellow Cltlnens tak
en Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the execntloners of their friends
and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands. He has excited domestic Insurrections nmongst us, nnd
has endeavoured to bring on the Inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Siivnites, whose known role,
of warfare, Is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions. In every stage of these Op
' presslons We have Petitioned foSr Redress In the most humble terms. Our repeated Petitions have been an
swered only by repeated Injury. A Prince, whose character Is thus marked by every act which may define a
Tyrant, Is unfit to be the ruler of a free people. Nor have We been -wanting in attentions to our Brlttlsh
brethren. We have warncs) them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwar
rantable Jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of oav. emigration and settle
ment here. We have appealed to their native Justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the
tlea of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably Interrupt our connections
and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of Justice and of consanguinity. We must,
therefore, acquiesce lu the necessity which denounces our Separatism, and hold them, as we hold the rest

Iron Bridge Makers Get- n
THEY THREATEN AN INJUNCTION
Die Fight Over the New Cnnnl Fulton
Bridge ContiactThe Structure
Will He Entirely of
For several days the county commis
sioners have been considering the ques
tlon of the new bridge over the Tus
carawns river to be built at Canal Ful
ton. Bids were submitted some tlnv
ago and the commissioners have been
reviewing them ever since. The prin
cipal thing to bo determined was oa to
whether the bridge should be made of
Iron and steel or whether a stone arch
bridge should be built. Bids were sub
mitted on both propositions. The com
missioners on Tuesday decided thai
they would build a stone arch bridge
This will cost In the neighborhood ol
$8,000, An Iron bridge could be securec
from about $3,000 to $6,000 according tt
the style but the kind that would bt
proper for this Job would be about
$4,000. The commissioners, however,
believe that the saving In planking and
painting an Iron bridge every couple
of years would on a stone bridge more
than make up the difference In price In
the course of time nnd that tho stone
bridge would after all be the cheapest.
Accordingly a contract was on Tues
day entered Into for a stone bridge
to be built by Thomas J. Watson of
Darke county. Mr. Watson Is to put
up the entire structure for $3.81 a perch.
The lowest bidder on Iron bridges was
the Wrought Iron Bridge company and
It has been making strenous efforts
to stop the commissioners from put
ting up a stone bridge. Agents of the
company have been hovering around
the commissioners' office every day for
two weeks and it has been threatened
by some of them that It the county
commissioners attempted to build a
stone bridge an Injunction would be
gotten out to try nnd stop them.
The contract for the stone bridge, was
drawn up by Prosecutor Day and he
says it Is legal and will stand.
