THE GLORIOUS FOURTH
It ecms Jo be the fashion pf those nftcr-wnr days amonfr certain
groups of people, especially in the cities, to sneer nt patriotism. To the
sentiment of lov0 of our country, there are plenty of people who try to
back up nil tho ills that have come upon us. Is sugar extortionntely high?
Drat such a country! Are tho railroads bad performers? Democracy is
to blame. Are the. politicians rambunctious? The country is going to the
Nothing of the kind. Tbc country is not at fault, the republic and
democracvjire as glorious as they ever were, the nation is as right as it
ever was. The trouble is human. If there are wrong they are wrongs
Perpetrated by human people and they will bo corrected the- cannot per--ist
in this democratic republic. Evolution nnd the war was only an inci
detn of evolution brins:- to our doorstep qujer children. They don't Iook
right to us today, but 50 years from today we -will know that the troublc
.oiiio foundlings were only details in the long, long trail of earthly progress.
If everything went well with u. we would not know it because there
would be nothing to contrast it with. We must have the hard knocks to
enjoy the sweets of existence.
The Fourth of July is upon us again. Let us remember that on that
day, July 4, 1770, when we gave to the world our Declaration of Indepen
dence, a nation was born that gave world evolution its sharpest impetus.
It Middenly brought to the front a smouldering consciousness of httmnn
dignity, of rights that belong to every living soul. In the 144 years that
have elapsed, tho common people of this earth have advanced 3n education
intelligence, good living and liberty more than they did in the 4000 years
previously, and that declaration nnd this democracy, have been largely
responsible for it.
Glorious Fourth! Aye, it is as glorious as 144 years ago, and its
glory will live as long as the word "liberty" sounds good to mankind.
NEARING ITS CRISIS
Ilns day the bursts of oratory
from Son Frnndsco n!mo?t swings
the globe to opposite direction. Tho
grcnt Democratic convention is nt
its crisis and backers- of the various
candidates are joyous in approval
of nominating speeches, which were
made yestcrdny. Names before the
convention from last reports nro
Cox, Palmer, Gerard, Cummings,
Hitchcock, McAdoo nnd others, 'ten
in nil. The convention platform is
said to bo concise, straight to tho
mark and free from superfluity nnd
double construction. Tho conven
tion instead of being a political mob
is n joyous love feast in which nil
parties participate. No indications
nt thc present justifies even a spec
ulative prediction of tho standard
henrers of tho Nationnl Democratic
party. The platform is free from
any wet or dry plank nnd joy per
vades the very vein of tho delegates.
Indications are that the voice of
the convention will be as of one man
and Hint the body will adjourn with
tho entire party in harmony nnd be
hind the ticket they mnj name. At
this writing all men nnd women of
the Democratic faith exclaim "Great
is Democracy and the name the par
ty may present to the people."
The ladies of tho Baptist church
will have an exchnnge on July 10th.
Plnce will be nnnounced later.
