' The Author of the Declaration ot Independence
Forced Napoleon to Sell

New York Timet: The "Immortal
Declaration" la by common consent regarded
as one great gift of Thomas Jefferson
to a country thai for nearly a
century and' a quarter has held his
name In honor therefor. Certainly the
honor Is due, and richly dine. The prln
cJplra at the DccUrationTiiice moat generalisations
of the kind, were largely
devised to meet the needs of the hour
and make a basis for an' appeal to the
opinion of mankind In support of the
clalma of the men who devised them;
but they served their purpose grandly
at the time, and they planted In the
hearts of the American peoOle the Ideas
that powerfully aided in ue abolition
of slavery apd made posffibje the establishment
of a free nation/from ocean
to ocean and from the -grist lakes to
jfc the Gulf. For the formulation of these
principles, and, especially, for the in|f
spiring sweep given to them, we are inE
debted to the daring imagination and
profound faith of the young Virginia
I lawyer.
But Immense and imposing as was the
& service he thus rendered, it may fairly
be held that ltwas surpassed by anfc
other rendered long years- after in the
P acquisition of the Louisiana territory.
.Though this achievement .was in a degree
accidental, though it was accomplished
In direct violation of the professed
theories of constitutional power
on which Jefferson had ^bjiUlt up a national
political party, a^d, though he
never regarded it with special enthusiasm
and never quite got'oyer apologising
for it, It was the moft ^far-reaching
contribution to the development of the j
" la a?. kU>A.u anrl It

was effected by the most amazing audacity.
Jefferson's place in history 1
really depends more on this one great
act than,on the principles of the Declaration,
effective as these have been
proved to be.
Only a dozen years before the revolt
of the English colonies in America the
British sway covered but a narrow
strip between the Atlantic and the Allegheny
mountains, ending on the south
at the Altamaha river, half way between
the present cities of Savannah
and Jacksonville. As the result of the
war with France and of the Revolutionary
war, there was turned over to
the United States the whole of the eastern
-half of the continent from the head i
waters of the Mississippi to the northern
boundary of the present, state of 1
Florida, but the mouth of the Mississ&
Ippi was left In foreign and not too
friendly possession, and the navigation
of the great river was unsecured. 1
When Jefferson assumed the presl- ,
dency, in 1801, his flrst object in foreign i
policy was to make sure of the free |
navigation of the Mississippi, and, if j
posible, to obtain a footing on the left
' or eastern bank. Apparently modest as I
was this plan, he was prepared to go to
great lengths In pursuit of it, and even |
Instructed his minister to France to >
threaten a hostile alliance with England 1
as the. alternative of compliance by Na- j
poleon with the schemes of the United |
States! In the tangled changes of the !
great conqueror's policy a time came 1
when he was ready to offer, not what (
Jefferson had sought, but the whole j
vast territory of Louisiana west of the <
Mississippi, stretching zizsag from the j
Red river on the south to the territory ,
claimed by England in the extreme i
northwest, at about 115 degrees west '
Jefferson, with superb disregard of all ]
he bad ever professed as to the power 1
of the executive, closed the bargain. He '
made a reservation that his action ^
should be submitted to the people for |
k\ their sanction by an amendment to the
1 constitution, but when the cooler-headed
Gallatin warned him that he might
1 Ul.- r>11, f*la11l>
dropped it and for the future of the
American republic was solidly baaed on
his acknowledged usurpation.
The territory thus secured by the audacious
act of this "political dreamer"
embraced the present states of Louisiana.
Arkansas, Missouri, Iowa, und
Mississippi, and beyond these the states
of Kansas, Nebraska, and North and
South Dakota. In 1812 one portion and
in 1819 the remainder of the present
state of Florida followed in logical sequence.
By the annexation of Texas in
1845 and the cession from Mexico in
1848 our territory was extended to the
Pacific and by the treaty with Great ,
Britain in 1845 the boundaries of Oregon ,
were Axed. Within less than half a century
from the first great extension <
under Jefferson the continent was ours. '
Even then the area of full or fulrly full ,
settlement was pushed only a relatively t
small distance beyond the Alleghenles. 1
But the grip of the young giant was on j
the land which was set apart for hts ?
tireless energies to develop. i
It Is needless to point out that It was '
the first buld enterprise that made the
others not merely practicable but es- ,
sentlal, and the first was the work of
Jefferson and of Jefferson alone. To- i
day, when the outstretched arms of the I
American nation, with us little premedl- j
tation and no more regard for pre- {
cedent or consistency than at the open- 1
Ing of the century, are reaching to tho
other side of the globe, it Is well to re- ,
member the part taken In our history (
by him w.hose day we celebrate. It Is i
well also to reflect whether therft are l
not forces mightier than the wisdom of
Individual* and not to be measured by
the Ideas of any one period that shape
the destinies of our nation, and have so
far shaped It happily.

In last week's rise, notably
Pennsylvania, New Tork Central and

Northwestern, Omaha and the Union
Pacific stocks. There was heavy
" pressure of liquidation In these
stocks, but there was no effort

them show losses of a point or over.
l0 There was a realising taoveznenl in the
grangers also, but the vigorous stength
of St. Paul sustained this group and

slon houses. St. Paul's extraordinary
n gain In earnings for the fourth woek in

?r There was some habitation In the early
trading on account of the failure of the
money market to ease off, as It was
i. expected to do under the July disburse>f
ments on Interest and dividends, but
J later In the day call money fell to 2 per
