It has reduced the cost of living
in fuel and food, and has saved
hours of kitchen drudgery, which
have been spent in visiting, shop

many instances it has saved the

Dr. Lodge declared that he would
say nothing to disturb the present
harmony between sections, but let the
record be kept straight. New Eng
land abandoned the use of slaves for
economic reasons and then opposed
it for political reasons, for they did
not wish too many Southern men in

England gathered up the slaves from
their home in Africa, sold them to the
South, then came down with cannon

The Right to Secede.
Did we have the right to secede?
That question has been settled so fat
as the force and arms Is concerned,
but In tits eferpal verities we wen
right then ami that principle will be
right until Gabriel blows his horn.
The 13 colonies were noun 1 to ?ng
land, each by an Individual cord, pope
having authority over the others.
The sword of Washington severed the
cords and in the treaty of peace they
were recognized ns free and Independ
ent State?. In the constitution the
Stntes "retained" their "sovereign
ty." They sometimes say that Lee
was atraitor and that Jackson was a
rebel. The text books on constitu
tional law at West Point when Pee
and Jackson and Davis were cadets
there teach l)? that the States had the
right to secede, if these men were
traitors it was because Jhey were
made so by the government \yhl|u (hey
Noah Webster's dictionary juggled
with the words "sovereignty" and "in
dependence." In the tlrst edition the
definition* were In keeping with the
Jdea taught in fin? South. But in the
second edit um puMUUed during t ho
excitement of J8f>) the meaning had
been changed by the ?Northorq editor*.
.New Jim; in nil's inconsistency,
Was it right Ut recede? In 180:5
when the Louisiana purchase matter
was pending and it seemed probable
that the South would have additional
representation In congress, New Eng
land said: "We will go out of the
Union If vou take In this new State."
Joalah Qulncy said: "it will he the
right of .'ill and the duty of some to I
prepare for separation amicably if
possible, forcibly If necessary."
Again when New England Shipping

New England sailors were pressed
Into British service, a Southern presi
dent went to war for New England!
And then what dirt .Vow England do?
She tried to paralyze the arm ol the
government, to hamper the progress
of the war and some of her sons were
in treasonable communication with
the enemy. The Hartford conven
tion of 1814 would have declared for
secession had not the speedy signing
of the treaty of peace thwarted their
The difference Is this: The South
seceded when the nation was strong
and not beset from without by n for
eign foe. New England threatened to
sect-do when a common foe wns weak
ening the defenses of the government.
In 1845 Texas wanted to come in.
Massachusetts again said: "We will
secede if you do." And now we wish
to God that she had. But 1?', years
later when the South seceded the
troops from Massachusetts shed the
blood of Southern citizens on the
streets of Haltlmore for doing the very
thing which Massachusetts would have
Even Daniel Webster admitted the
right to secede. And Just here Dr.
Podge slopped to deplore the fact that
he had heard in some schools young
boys get up and declaim with much

this assertion and commented that
In 1830 Mr. Webster was relatively a
youngster?at the time of his reply
to Hayne?while at Capon Springs, Va.,

with reasoning. They had the money,
they had the armament, they had the
ships, and tlfoy won by force."
While the North was contending for
an uueoust itut ioiiaiity t he South was
standing by the bedrock principles.
Tiie South was tricked into the
Union in the belief that her rights
would have been'maintained and then
the compact was broken. The South,
had as inuoh right to secede as a
Northern State and have to take up
arms today if she be deprived of rep
resentation in Congress.
Imperialism and Trusts.
All the great wrongs and political
infamy of today are the result of the
North's denial of the principles for
which the South fought. This bastard
Imperialism which we exercise over
the PhillIppines puts us in the pillory
of the world's scorn and has made
apostates of a democratic people. We
of the South do not believe in this
imperialism. We believe in the doo
, trine of "the ccuseut of the governed,"
but the North, which in 1861 was loud
voiced for that same principle, now

perialistic and traft policies to which
the nation has been brought by loose
construction of the constitution. Dr.
Lodge then gave warning of another
danger which he sees.

his bombastic manner and balloon
like conceit he calls "the new na

and What is true is not new. This
"new nationalism" is merely old fed

The man who propounds this perni

With tt beautiful peroration in
which lie spoke of the gallantry ot
the Confederate soldier, Dr. Lodge
concluded his addresu. He declined
that his heart was full and he wished
to talk of many things, but the hour
was growing late and the sun was
quite warm and trying on the im
