The effect la seen In Kurope more than
In this rountrj for there the money
lenders absolutely own the nvernments,
and iiil power, standing armies arid
ships of wr are hut collectors of usury
We Hfc reminded of this fait with great
frie by nh artlclo In Continental te
ilew, the Messager d'Athenea, under the
title of "U'hat l'rince illshiarck Coat
t' " It Is from the pen of neneral Turr,
n Ittltiirarlati dill and military engineer.
H'e put nslde the title and Animus of the
article and deal only wllh Its facts and
figures, for after nil lilsntarch was only
what the governing sjstem or Uurope
made necessary for his country In the
general strife or selfish power and of
government at the expense of the people
for the benefit of djnastle-" the de
scendants, s a "nnblllts," of the ancient
lobber chiefs of a barbatlan age.
Ueueral Tun-shows that what Is called
"the peace of Uurope" is maintained at
the enormous cost of Jl.onn.ooO.OOO a year
for armies alone, tn the last twenlj-dve
years it has cost $:;,ono.ono,ooo, and still
this enormous drain on the labor of the
peoples of Europe Is going on without
hope of abatement
Germany expends JSi5.000.000 a year
itiul collects J725.00O.0OO. France has In
creased her debt $125,000,000 In nine
yeats, while she collects now J6IO.oon.ooo
and spends $690,000,000 And this writer
sums up the balance sheet of nil Europe
as 2,050.000,000 collected and $3,900 000,000
spent annually or a debt Increase of
$320,000,000 enU) ear
This Is the gift of the gold syndicate
the system of the usurer lo Europe, and
had thewrlter looked acioss the water he
might have added the United States
to the list with her peace Increase of
the public debt of $150,000,000.
What Is to be the end of this sstem?
Either an Instant change or In Europe
the lepudlatlon of this enormous burden
by war. Does anybody suppose Europe
can go to war and pay this debt both?
The United States can yet pay, and the
vultures of usury are fastening their
hold on America against the day when
Europe breaks down and Its oppiessed
peoples are unable longer 10 pay and eat
We hear the cry of 'repudiation "
Did ou ever see a Hock of blizzards
driven from their feast of death that
they did not. cry out ns If overwhelmed
with grief ami Indignation? But there
Is. no life where they fatten, notwith
standing England Is the flist to pro
test against repudiation. et her vast
financial power rests on the master
swindle and repudiation of the world
her consols. The principal of her con
sols she never expects or proposes to
pn, and comptomlses with her ci editors
by a dole of nominal Interest Did the
woild e?r dream before of such a gi
gantic lepudmlon of an honest debt?
The capital of these consols was spent
in fastening her gold pow-er on India
and the world .vet she repudiates the
principal and pays only a nominal tax
to Its oivneis Let the cry of "re
pudiation" be taken at Us honest worth
from this sonice at least.
The Ui.ited States up to 180a was an
nually reducing its debt by an honest
system of "sound money," in hannony
with the usage of mankind since values
were exchanged and in agreement with
nine-tenths, of the race to-day It was
In 1S73 stabbed tn the house of iu sup
posed f 1 lends, murdered outright in 189S,
and In 1S95 we have passed from a debt
paying to a debt making nation, and
joined in the march of death In the rear
of the European procession.
Now. let us talk plain common sense
on this subjei r In tweity-seven yars,
from lMir. t is2, the United States had
reduced th national war debt from
$2,700,000,000 to $1,000,000,000, and at the
rate It wes blng reduced we would hue
teen out f debt in 1910, Now just lo.,k
at the cimdtti .n of Kurope and thu:.t
what we, then .1 nation of one hundred
million puople, rut of debt would be li
the financial md commercial wo Id.
Etiiupo would not be itble to rnalntuin
her present condlt'on of government in
the light of such un example In a free,
Hence the conspiracy to force us lno
the same line i.f policy. It is the monev
power that lw bi ought this bank
rupt condition on Europe and ruined
the life of her working nnises, and it
la the same power that has plunged us
In an 'ncreuse of debt In a time of pi
found peace, It is a startling picture,
but It is a true one, and the one over
mastering quebtlon before the American
people now Is shall we break tnU
power before it Is too late, and resume
our place as a debt paying instead nf
debt makl'is nation? This is the cloud
that not only ovei-bhndows America but
it is the one master calamity tht
threatens the civilisation of the world.

yesterday Was the day dedicated to
the passion of patriotism, for to the
truly patriotic citizen love of country
is hot a mere sentiment or prim-tple.
H Is a passion thnt ennobles all he says
and does, that tistmlns his hand and
tongue rmm doing or saying ought Ihul
wuld Impede or hamper the progress of
his cmiti'iy alonjr the highest lines and
Which stimulates thought and action
towatd the achievement of his country's
destln It was the day when the
thoughts of the elthwn turned to the
past and contrasted It In loMng pride
with the presnnt and when hope and
faith turned from the present to the
future that Is to be as much grnnder
than the present as to-day Is mote
glorious than yesterday. In this spirit
the day was eelebmted yesterday
throughout the length and breadth of
the land The eloquence of the orator,
the burning song or the poet, the
fragrance of flowers and the sweetest
strains were laid on the altar of liberty
and to-day the people will take up the
business of their dally Uvea agnlti,
strengthened and Inspired by what they
saw and heard.
With what profound Joy did the patri
otic citizen sing: "My country, 'tis of
thee" "My" eountry the heritage of
the past, with all Its sacrllloes and Its
sublime heroism, bequeathed as a rb-h
legacy to the lineal belts of freedom,
tlut with what profoundet joy did the
loyal citizen born on other shores, com
ing here to be a citizen by adoption,
consecrate himself to a new devotion
to the Institutions of his adopted coun
try, lie. too, could say "my" country
nnd become a citizen In very truth.
They worshiped together, the heirs by
blood and the adopted sons of this great
country: together they counseled re
garding the dangers that thieatencd the
destiny of their country and how those
dangers shall be met. how thnt destiny
shall be tlnall achleied And In this
loyal counsel the dangers were lessened
and the destiny was brought nearer to

There Is a new South, not one where

where the war ) still a Using issue.

can no longer compete with cheap
foreign labor without the safeguards of
a protective policy. He can no longer
offer slave labor as an offset to the
coolie, the serf and the peon. The ex
ample of what protection Is doing for
the Noith is beginning to be nppt eclated
and the planter who seatches for a
market for his cotton and tobacco and
rice and sugar Is beginning lo ask him

City Physician t'oftu, suggestion that
a ward be estaMWhid at the city hou

cared for is one uf the most practical
philunthiopi That theie should be
parents so heartless as to cast otf their
helpless and Innocent children ts a sad
commentary upon the humanity of the
day, but such there are In appatently
increasing numbeis There are others
who are foi ced to give up their children
through their Inability to provide for
them, and If tho charitable institutions
of the city ate unable or unwilling to
care for these homeless innocents, the
city must do the woik, How that work
may best be accomplished is the proble
of the municipal authorities Dr. a
tin's recommendation Is in line with the
most humane and piogregle solution
of the problem.
The tits hospital has always been
lamentably delb lent In Its facilities for
the care of t,uih patients and the neces
sity tor stub facilities has been fre
quently e-mphasisseii, Dr. CoRtn suggests
a maternity watd with sanitarium at
tached, where special attention will be
given to the care of abandoned Infants.
Plenty of fresh alt, sunshine ami similar
luxuries are tu be ptoilded. and so far
as publh: charity can do so. it is to ttke
the place of the cruel or Indigent parent
who abandon their children.
