B. Hill made an Independence Day oration
here today beTore a large gatliering. He
urged the annexation of Cuba, adding:
"Imtead cf venturing to embark In the
scheme or Hawaiian annexation we should
first do Justice to a brave and struggling
people at oui very doors, whole interests
are clo.-ly identified witli ours, and to
whose destiny we could not afford to be
Referring to local conditions he said:
"The new-fangled political patent medi
cines of the hour which a.re offered to t:s
on every baud deserve to be carefully
scrutinized before we swallow them. The
unscrupulous or mischievous modern phil
osophers who vainly propose to benefit
mankind by the remarkable feat of abol
ishing all poverty may possibly enrich
themselves wlnlo their deluded followers
"There is too much dernngogism abroad
in tbe Innd; there lb too much false d6c
tnuc taught pertaining to governmental
function; there is too much -encouragement
of the spirit of socialism md all
that Jt implies including communistic and
chimerical schemes for a so-called dem
ocracy; tiicie is too much toleration of
disrespect for courts aad constituted nu
thoritiPs, thereis too much clamor for diss
legislation; there is tco much inculcation
of tho idea that men can become rich with
out effort by the meie fiat of the Gov
ernment iustcad of earning wealth in tho
old-f lshloned way, and there is too much
attention pnld to cranks, blatherskites and
political adventurers, entitled to no con
sideration, but who seem to have obtained
the public cai and are seeking to pull
down the pillars of society."
