was. Read it:
"I can honestly nay that I me

Fourth of July?
The continental congress,
In hohhIoii !n Philadelphia,
piiHsed July 2, 1770, the resolu
tion presented In behalf of Vlr
Klnla by Itlchnril Henry I.eo
"Itesolved, That those Unl
ted Colonies are and of rlht
oiiKht to be free and Independ.
cut states; Hint they uro ab
solved from all nllleKlanco to
the llrltlsh crown, and that nil political connection
between them mid the state of drent Urltaln Is
and uuglit to bo totully dissolved."
This of course Is the real Declaration of Inde
pendence, tho document now known as the Declara
tion being adopted two days later. Of the adop
tion of the Lee resolution John Adnms wrote to
bis wife the historic letter which says, iiiiioiik
"Tho second day of July, 1770, will be the most
remarkable epoch In tho history of America. I
inn apt to bolleye that It will bo celebrated by
HUCcoodltiB KcncrntloiiH as the j?xent anniversary
festival. It ought to bo commemorated as the
day of deliverance by solemn acts of dovotlon to
God Almighty. It ought to bo solmenl.ed with
pomp and parade, with shows, gumes, sports, bells,
bonfires and Illumination from cno end of this
continent to tho other, from this tlmo forward for
Time has proved that John Adams, though ho
pot hlfl dates mixed, was n true prophet. Probably
tho Fourth of July Is our distinctively American
celebration. All the civilized world celebrates
Now Year's, F.nstor, Memorial day, Thanksgiving
and Christmas In one way or another. Hut Inde
pendence day Is ours nlone. To bo sure, we hnvo
Washington's birthday and Lincoln's birthday,
which nro also ours alone but "the Fourth" In.
eludes most If not nil of what they stand for.
In short tlio Fourth of July comes mighty near
being our national day when tho Amerlcnn Knglo
screams for everything from the Mayllower to tho
Argouno from 1020 to November 11, 1018.
Armistice day I That Introduces tho pertinent
point that another change must bo inndo In tho
long evolution of tho celebration of the Fourth of
July. For If tho Fourth of July stands for ono
Kpeclilc thing that ono specific thing h Just ex
actly what Its original nitine Independence day
signifies. And after Armistice day and all that
It stands for It's ipiHe evident that the .American
eagle must bo taught to coo Instead of scream
when It goes to tlio John Hull part of Us perform,
For wo have seen our old-time two-tlmo enemy
fighting for his life and for our lives too against
n fou that would have destroyed all that we Kng
llsh'Speaklng peoples In common hold dear. And
after a long while we crowded In alongside our
ancient enemy and got busy to make up for lost
time. Never mind who won the war, We have
gumption enough to know exactly what John Hull
did for Uncle Sain and are grateful accordingly.
And It's quite likely that Uncle Sum came near
enough to saving John Hull's life to feel something
more than a friendly Interest In him. .So some
parts of our Fourth of July celebiatlon will have
to bo toned down from now on.
Moreover, It's high time that the American peo
ple put their mind to fixing up the "day we cele
brate." For tho Fourth of July celebration right
aow Is betwixt nnil between. The old-fashioned
Fourth was done nway with, The "Hane Fourth"
iiipplanted It, Now the "Sane Fourth" Is In dan
rer of becoming merely n holiday. Holiday cele
brations, like men and nations, do not stand still,
fuid the Fourth of July Is worth Hie closest at-'entloii-and
best effort of tho American people.
Tho first Fourth of July celebration, which was
leld In 1777 In Philadelphia, cauol serve as n moil.

brntlon of Independence day. The enthusiasm of
our people for their country and ling can usually
be mensured by the bent of the natlonnl pulse.
A typical celebration of tho day Is that of 1&'50 In
Hiiffnlo. N. Y., which Is described at some length
In tho HufTalo Joumnl. That newspaper says:
"Tho return of our national Jublleo was cele
brated In this vlllngo with more than ordinary
splendour and tho dny was duly honoured, 'not In
tho breach but the observance.' "
The proceMfclon formed at tho Knglo a famous
tavern located on Main street between Court and
Knglo streets and consisted of veterans of tho
Revolution citizens and strangers, escorted by tho
Washington and Frontier gunrd nnd tho cadets of
tho Western Literary and Scientific academy, "tho
wholo enlivened by muslck from tho nuffnlo band."
The orutlon was pronounced by Sheldon Smith,
Ksq., nt tho Haptlst church nnd religious services
were conducted by Hov. Mr. Shelton of St. Paul's.
From tho church the procession inarched to tho
Huffalo Houso In Seneca street and there nn "ex
cellent dinner was partaken of." Dr. Powell was
landlord of the houso nt that tlmo and tho papers
recorded as something worthy of speclnl mention
that therq were no liquors on the tnblo. Hut tlio
good lesson this statement was Intended to convey
loses Its moral In tho very next lino of the narra
tive: "After tho cloth was removed wlno was
served with the toasts, which wero drank with the
utmost regularity." It Is hardly necessary to draw
on tho Imagination to any extent to picture tho
final state of ninny In that noble company of 100
who drank tlio wine "with the utmost regularity."
Hut that was before tho days of temperance soci
eties nnd adulterated liquors.
The marshal of the day was Colonel, afterward
General, Sylvester Mathews, a veteran of tho war
of 1812 a hero of the Hattle of Chippewa.
Apart from these proceedings was discourse by
Hov. Mr. Katon of the Presbyterian church on civil
and religious liberty. Tho festivities closed ac
cording to time honored custom with a ball In tho
evening. No mention Is made of any fireworks.
The celebrations of soveral succeeding years
seem to have been much like this one, according
to tho Journal's files. In IS It), however pre
sumably because of the Mexican war the celebra
tion was regarded by the Journal as noteworthy.
Tho Sixty-fifth regiment made Its first appear
ance on this occasion. At 8 o'clock hi the morning
a detachment marched to the Fillmore House and
fired some small anus In honor of tho vice presi
dent, The lino of innrch Included Revolutionary
soldiers. Think how old they must have been
sixty-eight years after the surrender of Yorktown
and seventy-two years after the battle of Lexing
ton I There were also soldiers of the War of 1812
In tin line, otllcers and soldiers of the army and of
tho Mexican war. The Friendly Sons of St. Pat
rick, the Sous of Krln nnd tho (ieriiinn Young
Men's association u sure sign that tho city was
beginning to take on cosmopolitan form were In
tho line of march. The exorcises wero held at
Johnson's park, the orator of the day being II. 1C.
Smith. Vice president Fillmore attended the ox
erclhos and was lustily cheered.
The Sons of Temperance had charge of tho
celebration In IfiW), which was held "at the grove
near tho workhoUM." John H. Cough, the leading
"temperance" speaker of kw tiny, was orator.

was tho "most Inspiring In the history of the city"
nnd occupied CS minutes In passing. Even more
pretentious was tho celebration following tho sur
render of General Lee. After 180.") Buffalo's cele
bration of the Fourth of July was rather humdrum
and innrked by no speclnl features Just as In
most other American cities.
I!y 1010 the "powder dlscnso" hnd come to Its
climax and those bent on reforming tho observ
ance of tho day called It the "nntlonal nuisance."
Moreover, the nation was alive to the tremendous
loss of life. Tnbfes prepared by the Journal of
the American Medlcnl Association, showed thnt the
number of tho killed and injured In the celebra
tion of 1009 was 5,307; for the seven years pre
ceding 1010 tho total was 31,003.
Perhaps tho first notable "safe and snno" cele
bration was that In Springfield, Mass., In 1900.
However, In 1010 most of tho largo cities of tho
country presented an entirely new kind of celebra
tion, the basis being tho parade and pageant. Fire
crackers wero taboo; tlio displays of fireworks
wero municipal affnlrs.
"I must confess that I always like to brag on
tho Fourth of July," wrote Chauncey M. Depew,
a good many years ago. "It Is tlio greatest day
In the American cnlcndar. Nay, more, It gives
perfume to the whole air that encircles thlr. globe.
Kvery limn, woman, or child who breathes It, no
mutter where he or she Is, feels the better for It.
There Is not a liberal sentiment whero civilization
Is known that Is not quickened on the Fourth of
July. It reaches tho hut of the peasant, and It
enters Into tho tent of the conscript. Tho one
says: 'There Is for mo and for my children some
thing better than this hut.' The other says:
'Why should I light to uphold thrones and cut
the throat of my brother to maintain enste and
privilege?' The Fourth of July lifts tho thought,
the nsplratlons, the prayers of the people of all
countries to higher planes of living, thinking and
dying. Why It Is a unherslty, a college, a high
school, a common school. It is a liberal educa
tion In patriotism and manhood."
That's tho way a good many good Aniorlcans
feel nbout tho Fourth of July even to this day,
even If there nre those who hold that noise Is vul
gar and "brag Is our national vice." Some of us
hao an Idea way down deep that the American
who will not brag on the Fourth of July Is hnrdly
worthy of his birthright.
SHU, It la u self-evident fact that the old Fourth
of July Is gone, never to como back. Of course
we must keep the day and celebrate It. It Is too
Iniportnnt a day to bo slighted. It must be cole
t rated right.
Hut let nobody make the mistake of trying to
refine all tho light out of It. Our ancestors handed
down to us freedom and tho love of freedom and
and that still more pieclous thing the readiness
to fight for freedom. ,nd that's got to stick out
of any proper ohscrvanco of tho Fourth of July
In the United States of America.
