WILSON'S IMPRESSIVE SPEECH.
THE speech that President Wilson
delivered at Independence
Square on the Fourth of July,
at the spot hallowed by the Continen
tal Congress which adopted the Decla
ration of Independence, not only pro
foundly impressed the great throng
that heard It. but cannot fall to create
?i deep impression throuhgout the Na
tion. Coining amidst a storm of sin
ister criticisms th??ro was a finality
about the renewal of the President's
pledge to his faith in the principles
to which the American Nation was
dedicated and to which he has com
mitted his administration that can
not fail to add strength and courage
to the doubting Thomases and the Pet
ers of little faith.
The whole scope of the President's
simple democratic faith was express
ed in the declaration that the duty of
the hour is to apply the principles of
the Declaration of Independence to
the business, politics and foreign re
. hit ions of today: and the key to his
Mexican policy was disclosed when he
said: "I would be ashamed of our flag
if we did anything outside of this
country which we would not do In it."
There can be no question but that
on that platform Wood row Wilson
tlnds at his side the great majority of
Americans who will sustain him in
his struggle "to do justice" at home
and abroad. Not only are they with
hltn on the Fourth of July, but they
will be with him next November, just
as they have been with him since his
inauguration as President of the Unit
llooscvelt referred to the election
of Wilson the other day as the result
of ::government by convulsion." yet
his whole spectacular course from
darkest Africa to Armageddon and
from the Kiver of Doubt to the very
latest Oyster Bay bull has been direct
ed toward producing convulsions.
RETIREMENT OF GEORGE FRED
. HE necessity for the recall of
George Fred Williams from his
post as American minister at
Athens, the ancient seat of learning,
will cause regret among a wide host
of admirers of the brilliant and scln
tllating radical son ot the conserva
tive race of people which has made
New England a bulwark of the Amer
ican Nation. Finely educated In his
youth and a student all his life, an
orator and linguist, with a keen taste
for the best in literature and art. a
brilliant conversationalist and a con
noisseur of the pleasing things of life,
he had many qualifications that fit
him for diplomacy. But. accompany
ing these qualifications, there Is a |
militancy about the democracy of Wil
liams that long ago earned for him
?he apellatlon of "fire-brand." and
there is little room in tho Held of di
plomacy for the bllllgerant type of
The crowds that witnessed tho
Fourth of July events at Juneau and
Douglas were conclusively demonstra
tions of the fact that Gastlneau chan
I net is the most populous center of civ
ilisation north of the big cities of Pu
j get Sound and the Gulf of Georgia.
THE RESURRECTION OF "KING
IT BEGINS to look as If old "King
Wheat" has come to life again,
and that he may be instrumental
in bringing back some of that gold that
we have been shipping abroad for re
purchased American securities. And
that recalls that "King Wheat" was
i ever a generous distributor of his gold
' In places where the effect was benefi
cial to business, and that no foreign
Interest payments follow the distribu
