Continued from Pace One. which their action exposed them, and while some of them, in a spirit of levity, discussed the consequences which might follow the work in which they were eu gaged, they all clearly understood that death awaited each and every one of them, unless the Declaration of Independence should be sustained in the forum of war. How conspicuously these grand characters stand out in history before us, as they are about to take the final vote which is to settle the destinies of the Colonies. We find some of them bold and defiant, ready and anxicus to place themselves on record in favor of the Declaration, while others were conservative to the point of timidity, and hesitated to take the final step. But under the influence of the unanswerable logic of those who favored the resolution, the measure ",vas carried and liberty was voted up and tyranny was voled down. After the adoption of the Declaration of Inde pendence "Old Liberty Bell" sent forth a peal which told the world that henceforth this country was to be devoted to freedom. "That old bell new is silent. And hustied its Iron tongue. But the spirit it aw .kernel Still lives-forever youns. And, wliile we greet the sunlight. On tht fourth of each July. we'U ne'er forget the Iteliman, ho t.wixt theearili and sky, Rani? outour independence: Which, please (jod. shall never die: The whole country was wild with de light on hearing of the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, and from that time on greater concert or aciion on the part of the people of the Colonies was shown. The struggle continned yearaftcr year, and eight long years it lasted. Every privation and hardship incident to war the Americans experienceJ. Finally the dark clouds were dispelled, victory perched up on our banners and proud and haughty England was compelled to recognize o.:r independence. The war of the Revolution was a war tint only patriots who loved liberty better than life, could have won. The advant ages were all in iavor of England and against us. With but three millions of people scattered along the Atlantic coast, and with but limited resources at our command, it seems incredible, that we should have conquered anation so wealthy and formidable as Great Britian. The slightest blush of shame should never mantle .the cheek" of a citizen of this country, for what our fathers did. nor for the motives which inspired them to awtiuu. 1. is not my purpose to offer any apologies for what they did, for none is nee:led. We fully justify them in their revolt against the authority of Great Britian, and appeal to the statement of grievances, contained in the Declaration of Independence to prove that what they did was rijjht. It was England's greed and imbecility that lost to her the affections of the Colonies. It was hsr madness and folly that provoked them to wrath it was her oppression and cruelity that drove them into revolution. We not only ap prove of their actions, bat we believe the Almighty has set the seal of His aprroval on all they did, and that He has since guided the new nation, which they brought into being, on its successful career. L.»! us here and now reverently bow our un covered heads in honor of the patriots ol '76, and pray that this generation may, in some measure, approach them in fidelity to country, home and God. We are not only under obligations to our ancestors for giving us a nation, but in addition for the system of government which we have. It was not by mere chance that a republican form of govern ment was adopted. Jit was because of the wisdom and foresight of the statesmen ot that period. After the Revolution the question arose as to what form of govi rn ment would best enable the stales to co operate with each othsr, and govern them selves The Ariicles of Couiederuti. n, in force at the close of the war, when tried, proved to be inadequate for the purpose of holding the Colonies together, and sue cessfully carrying ou the government There was an absence of a trong central power to compel the different j-talt-s to contribute to the common welfare. The confederation was nothing moro thin a compact or agreement betws.-n the several states, and not a bo ?d ol union between the people of the whole country. What was for the interest of one state was not regarded as being for the interest of an other. There was no provision for reg ulating commerce between the several elates. And none was made for the pay nient of the national d^ bt, except mut ual agreement, and this could not be se cured. The necessity for a stronger cen tral government was so apparent that the leading statesmen in the country became interested in an attempt to devise some method or plan by which this result could be secured A convention composed of as able a body of statesmen as ever assembled met in Philadelphia to discuss the ques tion, and as a result the Constitution of the United States was adopted. Tnis constitution, unlike the Ariicles of Con federation, which were simply compact between the states, has its source ofpov er in the peo^ le, as appears from its pre amble, in which it is stated that: \V tbe people of the United States, in orJer to form a more perfect union, to establish justic insure omestic tranquility, pro vide for the common defense, promote the peneml welfare and secure the blessings of liberty for oursel.es and our po ti ritv do ordain and estsbl sh this cou-ti'ution (or ilie Ui i:cd States." It provides for a true central government with .uer enforce its laws ami regulations.independ ently of the state Within its sph re, th ponstitution is the supreme l«w of th 1,4 ,- j* matters ~i nati jnai interest, such as peace, war, commerce between the states and 1 with foreign countri s, coinage of -rsonev, and pest offices. We have reason to congratulate our selves that our forefathers were able to formulate a constitution so perfect as the one adopted. I challenge the world to produce a svstem of government which secures to the individual greater liberty, and at the same time furnishes a stronger central government than our constitution. Enough power is granted by the peop:e, to the general government, to enaole it to carry out its functions throughout every section of the country, and yet no opt res-' sion is visited upon the people of any sec tion of the country. We are much indebt ed to 1 he wisdom and foresight of the statesmen aud jurists who were called up on to interpret the constitution, in its ear ly history, for the satisfactory results which have followed. When we reflect that at the time the constitution was adopt ed the union consisted of only thirteen states and territories, and at this time there are forty five states, and that it as perfectly answers the purpose now as in its early history, we are forced to admit that it is one of the most perfect documents that ever emanated from the mind of man. We speak of it as approaching perfection, and yet we recognize, as did many of the statesmen at the time it was adopted, that it was a mistake to recognize slavery in the constitution. But it was a mistake which then seemed unavoidable, in view of the fact that the institution of slavery was so strongly intrenched, in the coun try, that it could have defeated t-.e adop tion of the constitution, and as it threaten ea to do so unless it was recognized, it be came a question, whether it should be a constitution wi'h slavery countenanced, or no constitution at all. Tnis monster evil, so inconsistent with the principles cf free government, and so repulsive to the doctrine announced in the Declaration of Independence, never ceased to be a cause of irritation. There is no place in the Declaration of Independence where mas ter and slave can find standing room none for an auction b'.ock where human beings may be sold as chattels no provision for one man to apply the lash to another. It makes no distinction in the rights of men because of their color. Sheltered as it was by the Constitution slavery sought to extend itself, and did succeed in breaking down the barriers erected against its fur ther extension, until it threatened to be come un'versal. One southern statesman made his boast that the time would come when the master would call the roll of his laves at the foot of Bunker Hill monu ment. It is a regretable fact that the peo ple of the slave holding states lost their reason on the question 01" extending slav ery,-and bi-Cdiue. literally frantic when thwarted in tneir purpose. It is somev.here said that "whom the gods would destroy they first make mad If there is any truth in this saying it is not hard to believe that some unseen influence was operating on the slave power tu mak it a fit subject for destruction In an in sane desire to strengthen and perpetua'e it se!f it attacked the life of the nation, and as a consequence was crushed to death in the War ot the Rebellion. It now lies buried under a public sentiment so potent that little fear need be entertained of its resurrection. Our country in the sacrifice of hsr nobl?st sons and the losj of untold treasures paid dearly for the attempt to re tain human slavery as one of her insii.u tions. It cannot be true that God ever in tended to permit this evil to continue in our national life. I fully believe that if its destruction had not coma ibout as it did that in some other way tbe Lord would have lash us with His furies until the nation would have purged itself of this great sin. "Thouuh the mills of Uorl grind slowly, Yet. they grind exceedinuly small Thuuch th patience He stands waiting. With exactness grinds He all." With slavery out of the constitution, it is now in all respects in perfect accord with the principles of the Declaration ot Independence, and we can truthfully as sert that this is The land of the free and the home of the brave Our advance ment as a nation, from the beginning, has been constant and uninterrupted. But few clouds have hung over our national hcrizon. While there have been periods of anxiety and doubt the nation has swept grandly forward. We have been excee.i ingly fortunate in our relations with for eign countries, which have generally been of a friendly character. We were, however, compelled to engage in a second war with England, in order to protect our citizens and commerce upon the high seas and convince her :liat we had a right to engag: in business on our own account. It did not take long to im press her with the fact that we were quite as able to cope with her upon the water as upr-n the land. Since ihen our commerce has met with no obstruction upon the seas, and the rights of our seamen have b±en fully respectc. We first convinced her that we were a match ft. her in war, and afterwards her eqinl in time of peace, and entitled to her respect, which we have gainui. More tfirin that she has become our very good frisnd for which we all say A ill" II We engaged in a war with Spain, prompted solely by considerations of sym pathy. We had ro thought of gain or profit to our elvt-s, nur had v.-e a grievance against her for any wrong done to us. it was simply because s.ie persist ed in persecuting and.oppressing her sub jects in Cuba. We first appealed to the reason and decency the Spanish author ities and asked them to desist, and in re ply were told that :t was not our affair. When our appeals remained unhe. ded and the misery of the victims increased rather than diminished we gave Spain an ultima tum in which we told her that unless she abandoned Iter practice of cruelty and op-* prrssion toward the Cubans we would wipe her off the m.-*p of the Western hem isphere and as she refused, we proceeded to rnakfe our stat"ni«nt good, by clearing out and destroying the last vestige o! Spaoi-h authority in the West Indes. Af terwards we res to red older, c!eans.-:d the island of the foul ir.flueneo ot Spain,' as sisted thCubans to formulate a constitu tion of their own st.rt^d them well on the way of se f-government and left them to themselves, wishing th God-speed in their new relations. We point the world to our action as an object lesson in true sympathy and humanity. We got out of it, in addition to an approv ng conscience, a larse amount of preslige, which cinte to our feat of arms on land and sea Since Dewey 's victory at Mani la bay, the charge of our trcps up San juan Hill, and the destruction of the Spanish Meet at Santia go harbor the world has stood ready t.: acknowledge the superiority of American so'die.s and seamen. Our country is se cure against attack from any foreign powir. Our resources are so unlimited and our means of defense so ample that 1 V" ui'LiMi'jn mimm wmjuMw Uj 1..UMJ can uitacK us witn any hope of success. If there are any dangers to which the nation is exposed they are internal and come from the source that all dangers to republics come from—the people themsel ves the source from which the only seri-1 ous danger to our national life has come, and the cue from which emanated the overthrow of Greece and Rome The question is, are we in danger, and if so from what cause? I am not one of those inclined to see danger where none exists to imagine attack where none is in tended. In our internal affairs everything is calm and serene. There are no clouds to indicate that a storm may suddenly break forth and di .turb the peaceful con dition that exists in the country to-day. There are now, and always will be evils, that require correction. Whether they may grow into such magnitude as to threaten the perpetuity of the Union de pends on whether they are allowed to re main unchecked. It is safe to say that the spirit of patriotism in the country can be depended upon to prevent any dangerous results. There will always be grave ques tions to engage our thoughtful attention. One of the questions which demands our serious consideration is the want of respect for law, which exis'.s in the country. It should challenge I the attention of all good citizens. 'aw which exists in the country. It should challenge tbe attention of all good citizens. It must be admitted that there has grown up a disposition on the part of some to as sert if not to feel that the enforcement of the laws of the country can not safely be entrusted to those wso are legally authori zed to administer them. In my judgment no more dangerous and threatening evil exists, than is *ound in the fact that men under claim of a high morality and desire to prese. ve order, will take the law into their own hands and visit punishment upon those whom they conceive to be violators of the laws of their country. Such a course tends only in the direction of anarchy. No self respecting man, in this country, can find excuse or justitica tion for voluntary defying the laws of the state in which he lives, and visiting pun ishment upon offenders where courts are open for the trial of persons charged with crime. It is nothing short of rebellion against the laws and the authority of his state. It is sowing to the wind only to reap the whirlwind. It may be claimed that Decause of the law's delay guilty men sometimes escape punishment, and there mav be instances where such is the case. But whether true or not it offers no excuse for men taking the law into their own hands, and thereby becoming criminals. It is a sad record this country presents that, within the last twenty years nearly thirty-five hundred people h^ve been lynched in the United States, for crimes committed or imagined to have been committed. You may apply what ever terms you wish to those engaged in these lynchings, but I venture the assert ion th it the stain of murder rests upon every person taking part in them. This spirit of lawlessness should be frowned down iu every community. Men should be taught to understand and should be madft to feel, that the only security lies in our courts and the officers of the law. Our children should be taught to respect the laws and to believe in the judgments of the Courts. This is the only way to check these deeds of madness and passion, en tirely too common of late. Another evil which exists is the unfair treatment of the negro by the white people of the south. But a few years ago they were in ondage, and after the War of the Re bellion, by an amendment to the constitu tion, which is the supreme law of the land, they were made citizens and were given the privelege of the ballot and the right to hold office There has been for some time an evident purpose 011 the part of the white people of the south to prevent their enjoying the rights and privileges guaran teed them by the constitution. They are today in greater jeopardy so far as their civil rights are concerned than at any time since the close of the Rebellion It has come to light that a system of peonage ex ists in some of the southern states under which many colored people have teen held in a state of practical bondage and slavery. The las1. of the slave holder, applied in the days of slavery has come into use again. There is no law, no justificaiion or excuse for this condition. It is simply the tyran ny of one American citizen over an other, and offers an additional illustration of the want of respect for law. 1 am not tslHng politics, but simply speaking in favor of right, of justice and the liberty so dear to every American citizen. The prejudice against the negro in the south and tne de ntal of his political rights are not confined alone to one political party. It is to be" regretted that a feeling is growing among the white people that this is a white man's governme-it, and the negro should neither be allowsd to vote or to hold office, and that the South should have the right to solve the question without the advice or interference of other sections of the coun try. 1 appreciate tin fact that it isa grave question, and one difficult of solution, in view ot the fact that it has its foundation in race prejudice. It must in the near future demand serious consideration by our wisest and .nost patriotic statesmen, and when settled it must be on a basis uot to do violence to the principles of liberty and free government. What about the immigration question? Is it time to sound a note of warning? Is the republic in danger from this source? I answer no, provided proper safeguards are employed. 1 answer yes, unless these safe guards are furnished. Have we displayed the highest order of statesmanship in the course we have pursued in the past in ad vertising this country as an asylum for the oppressed of all nations? Does it not seem about time to send word abroad that our asylum is limited in capacity, at least until we institute a system of closer in spection of those who apply for admission than we have in the past? Has it not dawned upon us that, in answer to our asy lum invitation many people have come here who were only fit subjects for asylums in the country from which they came, and some of them better suited for prison cells? fs it true that some steamship lines are making this country a victim of the greed in sending here crim inals and paupers? II there is any truth in a recent report, that of all the immi grants lately landed from a steamer in Slew York an inspection showed that one third of them were unsuitable for admis sion to the country, it would look as if we were being imposed upon from some source. We want the good foreigner to come here, and God bless hint when he comes. We want him whose purpose is to become one of 11s, and not simply to be with us. A man who would have been a benefit to the country lroin which he came will prove a benefit t.: us after he comes, and he is welcome but the man whose coming here benefits only the coun try from which he com: we do not want, and he is not welcome We want the man who, atter he comes here, will feel that this is his country, and that he owes alle giance to no other. We have in the United States millions of adopted sons whose presence would honor any country, and who have shown their allegiance in war as well as in peace. When a man becomes a citizen here his identity as a foreigner should be lost sight of. It should be as a stream from the continent finding itsway to ttie ocean where, after mingling its waters with those of the great deep, looses its identity and becomes simply a part of the ocean. There is another question which, like the poor, is always with us. It is the question of capital and labor. Both cap ital and labor are organized and on the alert to see that the other secures no un due advantages. One is dependent upon the other, and neither can succeed without the other. Experience proves that both succeed better when each is tolerant toward the other and is goverened by the principles of the golden rule. In most cases there is real and genuine friendship between the employer and employee It is my opinion that in the final analysis it will be found that the solution of the labor question along the lines of friendship and co-operation, rather than through the medium of strikes and courts It must be admitted that labor has been benefitted as a result of organization. It has been better able to cope with organized capitol. But will cortinued strife between the two organizations result in benefit to either? Is it not true that each must finally come to respect the rights of the other, and friendly counsels se:tle their grievances? Every one admits the effect of a strike to be hurtful, not only to capitol and labor, but to the public as well. It has been stated by Bishop Spaulding, who was one of the arbitrators in the anthracite coal arbitra tion, that no man comes ouf of a strike as good a man as when he went into it. Its effect, not only on the laborer, but on the employer and the public, as well, is de moralizing and disintegrating. I think every one who has studied the question is ready to confirm the statement of Bishop Spaulding. Let us indulge the hope that in the future fewer strikes will occur, and that more rational methods will be resort ed to tn order to settle differences between capitol and labor. These questions and others which might be mentioned should not escape our atten tion, and it is safe to say they will not be overlooked by a patriotic people. who=e ambition is to preserve inviolate the insti tutions of the republic, founded and pre served by our illustrious ancestors. We can not, however, on a day like this afford to permit the thin clouds which hang over the national hori zon to obscure the glory and dazzling splendor of our past, nor the brilliant future which awaits us. From three millions of people at the time of the Revolution we have grown into a nation of more than eighty millions of people. From eight hundred and twenty seven thousand square miles of territory at the beginning of the last century we have ex panded so that our territory is more than three millions of square miles. We have ad Jed to the republic enough territory so that with the original thirteen states we now have forty-five. Since the Revolution we have added the territory embraced in the Louisiana purchase, out of which have been carved a number of the best states of the Union, among which is our own be loved state, the brightest tar in the galaxy of states. We have added the territory of Nevada, Aaizona, Texas, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Florida, Colorado, and Wyoming and California in part. Not only this, but the vast domain of Alaska, the Hawaiian Islands, Porto Rico, and the Philippine Islands, and then we have a little strip of land across ihe Isth mus of Panama, which is the most interest ing spot on the ea'rth today, in view ot the fact that we are to build across it a canal which is to bind in perpetual wedlock the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, and through which, for all time to come, the commerce of the world will be carried. It will ob literate space by bringing the eastern and western coasts of our country into closer relations with each other. It will prove a great benefit to the Mississippi valley by bringing it nearer to markets for its pro ducts. There were some people who dt^ not approve of our methods in securing the route for the canal, and who thought they could gain notoriety by defeating the treaty under which the route was secured. But they discovered, in time to beat a hasty retreat, that the sentiment of the people of the country not only demanded the canal, but approved the methods em ployed to secure it. So the canal will be built, aud when completed it will be count ed among the great achievements of our country. In material wealth •the country has moved forward with leaps and bounds. In 1:560 the total wealth of the country was sixteen billions of dollars. It is now one bundled billions of dollars. More than thirty billions in excess of the wealtt: of great Britain. The per capita wealth in the United States ip 1860 was live hun dred and thirty-five dollars. It is now twelve hundred and thirty five dollars. In 1S50, there were gooo miles of railroads in the country there ars now more than tw-o hundred thousand miles. Our commerce and trade have grown beyond our ability to estimate. Our foreign trade has become so prodigious that it seems incredible The balance of trade each year is such as to stagger us. Some idea of its extent can be gained when I tell you that the balance in cur ^foreign trade during the last eight years is approximately four billions of dollars. We are not expanding alone in territory and wealth, but in all directions which count for increased happiness and comfort There are more schools and colleges in the country than ever before more educated men moie churches and benevolent in stitutions more men employed at good wages more open mills and moving spindles more happy homes and light hearts more general prosperity than at any other time in our history. The credit of the nation is higher than ever before, and higher than that of any other country. There is more mony in circulation than ever before, and more gold in the United States treasury than at any time in the past, and more than was ever held by any other nation in the globe. The prestige of the nation r.t home and abroad was never greater than now. The opportunities for young men to win success ennnot be paralleled in any other country. The young man of forty or fifty years ago is the controlling factor in business and the millionaire of to day Marvin Hughitt. President of the C. & N. W. railway, and perhaps the most succes lul railroad ma' in the country, it is said, at 13 years, was a telegraph operator. Alexander J. Cassatt, President of the Pennsylvania K. R. at twenty years of age was a member of a surveying party in Georgia. Mar shall Field, the prince of pierchants, and who stands without a rival in the mercan tile world, commenced life as a clerk in a store in Massachusetts and later began at 1 the foot of the ladder in the house of which he is now the head. Andrew I Carnegie when a boy, worked in a mill at Pittsburg for one dollar and twentv-five cents a week. John D. Rockafelier prob ably the richest man living, began as a clerk in a ccmmission house in Cleve land, Ohio. In three years he had saved a thousand dollars James Hill, Pre-si dent of the Great Northern Railway Com pany clerked in a country store when he was a boy, and csme to this country from Canada when eighteen years of age Joseph H. Choa.e, our ambassrdor to England, when a you-g man went to New ork to practice law with scarcely a penny in his pocket. John W. Gates one of the modern wonders in the financial world, made his first money husking corn. And last, but not least, Leslie M." Shaw, Secretary of the Ireasury, won his way through college by wo:kin on a farm teaching schoul and selling iruit tr e?. It is safe to say that a majority of men in public life to day, and those who are leaders in the financial and business world, started in life as poor boys and have worked their way up frcm obscurity. What an inspiration for the young men of the country! What encouragement to in duce them to strive for advancement! Ihere is here no caste cr prejudice to hinder or embarass them. What is the future of the republic? Is its destiny in safe hands? Can we be trusted to defend it and keep its banner aloft? Do we appreciate how much it,is \vorth? What it has cost to preserve ft? Ihe hardships, the sacrifices, the treasures, the anxiety and misery, the tears, the heart aches, the lives, the widows and orphans? All of which are but a part of what it has cost to preserve the Union Are we willing to take up the work which our fathers have so nobly begun, to be dedicated to the task of carrving it for ward ,n order that their work' shall not have been in vain? Let it never be said that this generation failed to meet its obligations, or to assume the responsibili ties which have come upon it. We Owe to the soldiers and sa lors, who have fought the nations battles, an everlasting debt of gratitude. To the men, who during the dark days of the Rebellion, sacrificed so much to save the Union. We owe it, to the survivors of the war, that hunger and want shall not mar the pleasures of their declining years. If we love our country asjwe should we will not permit its defenders to be forgotten. I have faitn co believe that the hearts of the people of the nation are right that their purposes are of the loftiest eh' e'er that they are endeared to the institutions of their country, and can be relied upon, in any crisis, to come to their rescue. I believe in the republic aud its future possibilities. We have swept into the light of the new century, and are now grandly pressing forward toward a higher national life. The American republic was not born to die. It is destined to shine with greater lustre and to coniinue forever, to bless and cheer mankind. "Ood bless our native* land Mrni may she ever stand, Through storm and night. When the wild tempests rave, Kuler of wind line wave. Do thou our country save, By Thy great might."
