Westcott spoke as follows :
"Prophecy is fulfilled. The eternal
verities of righteousness have pre

of war, unmoved by viturperation and
vain declamation, holding to the pure

tries halted, men were idle. The coun-
try struggiea in the toils or an maae-1
quate financial system. Credit was at i
the mercy of piracy. The small busi
ness man was bound hand and foot.
Panic hung like a storm cloud over
the business world.
"Now bursting granaries, teeming
factories, crowded railways and over
laden ships .distribute wealth and com
fort to uncounted millions the world
over. Production outruns the means
of distribution. The parallel of Ameri-
can prosperity is not found in indus-
trial history; nor it is causeless. It
did not descend, like a merciful acci-
dent, from heaven. It is not due to
the devastations of a revised tariff. It
is not the result of destructive legis-
lation. It cannot be attributed to the
manufacture of war materials, con-
stituting a bare five per centum of
the volume of national business. War
Is destruction, not production. War
curtails international trade. War de-
presses industrial energy. When the
European cataclysm struck the world,
moratoria fell like a blight upon very
many of the neutral nations, but not
upon the United States. j
"There stands the astounding phe-
r.omenon of American prosperity. ' and patriotism of American a; ms to

disturbed, the effects must remain.
The schoolmaster is statesman, the
statesman is financier, the financier
is emancipator. With Lincoln, the
emancipator of the chattel slave, he
will live forever as 1 the emancipator
of the commercial slave.
"The nation is at peace in a world
at war. America is confronted with
appalling realities. It is not the part
of wisdom to play with phantoms, deal
in riddles, or seek to entertain the
national imagination -with the leger
demain of language. To build words

American pastime. An attempt to
catch the presidency by phrases is the
work of folly. The function of a
