Wilson's Inaugural address, remark

with the greatest interest by the vast
throng which was gamereu m

close there was heard nothing but

moral tone. The address In full was
as follows:
There has been a change of govern
ment. It began two years ago, when
the house of representatives became
nomnrratle bv a decisive majority.
It has now been completed. The sen
ate about to assemble will aiso ue
Democratic. The offices of president
and vice-president have been put into
the hands of Democrats. What does
h nhnn.?B mean? That is the Ques
tion that is uppermost in our minds
today. That is the question 1 am go
ing to try to answer, in order, if 1
may, to interpret the occasion.
Purpose of the Nation.
it means much more than the mere
ft nartv. The success of a
party means little except when the
nation is using that party ior a jargo
and definite purpose. No one can
mistake the purpose for which the
nation now seeks to use the Demo
cratic party. It seeks to use it to in
terpret a change in Its own plans and
point of view. Some old things with
which we had grown ramuiar, auu
whlrli had beeun to creep into the
very habit of our thought and of our
lives, have altered their aspect as we
have latterly looked critically upon
them with fresh, awakened eyes;
have dropped their disguises and
shown themselves alien and sinister.
Home new thines. as we look frankly
upon them, willing to comprehend
their real character, have come to as
sume the aspect of things long believ
ed in and familiar, stuff of our own
convictions. We have been refreshed
by a new insight into our own life.
We see that in many things that
life is very great. It .is incomparably
great in its material aspects, in its
body of wealth, in the diversity and
sween of its energy, in the industries
which have been conceived and built
up by the genius of individual men
and the limitless enterprise of groups
of men. It is great, also, very great,
in Its moral force. Nowhere else in
the world have noble men and women
exhibited in more striking form the
beauty and energy of sympathy and
helpfulness and counsel in their efforts
to rectify wrong, alleviate suffering,
and set the weak in the way of
strength and hope. We have built up,
moreover, a great system of govern
ment which has stood through a long
age as in many respects a model for
those who seek to set liberty upon
foundations that will endure against
fortuitous change, against storm and
accident. Our life contains every
great thing, and cc-Lains it in rich
Evils That Have Come.
But the evil has come with the
rood, and much fine gold has been
corroded. With riches has come in
excusable waste. We have squan

have used, and have not stoppea 10

ture, without which our genius for en
tnrnrlfi would have been worthless
and impotent, scorning to be careful,
shamefully prodigal as well as aamir
ably efficient. We have been proud of

have not hitherto stopped thought
fully enough to count the human cost,
the cost of lives snuffed out, of ener
gies overtaxed and broken, the fear

tories and out of every home where
the struggle had its intimate and fa
miliar seat With the great govern
ment went many deep secret things
which we too long delayed to look
into and scrutinize with candid, fear
less eyes. The great government we
loved has too often been made use of
for private and selfish purposes, and
those who used it had forgotten the
At last a vision has been vouch
safed us of our life as a whole. We
see the bad with the good, the de
based and decadent with the sound
and vital. With this vision we ap
proach new affalrj. Our duty is to
cleanse, to reconsider, to restore, to
enrrect the evil without impairing the
good, to purify and humanize every
process of our common life witnout
weakening or sentimentalizing it.
There has been something crude and
heartless and unfeeling in our haste to
succeed and be great Our thought has
been 'Let every man look out for him
self, let every generation look out for
itself.' while wo reared giant machin
ery which made it impossible that any
but those who stood at the levers of
control should have a chance to look
rmt for themselves. We had not for
gotten our morals. We remembered
well enough that we had set up a
policy which was meant to serve the
humblest as well as the most power
ful, with an eye single to the stand
ards of justice and fair play, and re
membered it with pride. But we were
very heedless and in a hurry to be
Things to Be Altered.
We have come now to the sober
second thought. The scales of heed
lessness have fallen from our eyes.
We have made up our minds to square
every process of our national life
again with the standards we so proud
ly set up at the beginning and have
always carried at our hearts. Our
work is a work of restoration.
We have itemized with some degree
of particularity the things that ought
to be altered and here are some of
the chief items: A tariff which cuts
us off from our proper part in the
commerce of the world, violates the
just principles of taxation, and makes
the government a facile instrument in
the hands of private interests; a bank
ing and currency system based upon
the necessity of the government to
sell its bonds fifty years ago and per
fectly adapted to concentrating cash
and restricting credits; an industrial
system which, take it on all its sides,
financial as well as administrative,
holds capital in leading strings, re
stricts the liberties and limits the op
portunities of labor, and exploits with
out renewing or conserving the nat
ural resources of the country; a body
of agricultural activities never yet
given the efficiency of great business
undertakings or served as it should be
through the instrumentality of science
taken directly to the farm, or afforded
the facilities of credit best suited to
its practical needs; water courses un
developed, waste places unreclaimed,
forests untended, fast disappearing
without plan or prospect of renewal,
unrecorded waste heaps at every mine.
We have studied as perhaps no other
nation has the most effective means
hut. we have not studied
cost'or economy as we should either
as organizers of industry, as states
men, or as individuals.
Government for Humanity.
Nor have we studied and perfected
the means by which government may
be put at the service of humanity, in
safeguarding the health of the nation,
the health of its men and its women
and its children, as well as their rights
In the struggle for existence. This is
no sentimental duty. The firm basis
of government is justice, not pity.
These are matters of justice. There
can be no equality or opportunity, the
first essential of justice in the body
politic, if men and women and chil
dren be not shielded in their lives,
their very vitality, from the conse
quences of great industrial and social
processes which they cannot alter,
control, or singly cope with. Society
must see to it that it does not itself
crush or weaken or damage its own
constituent parts. The first duty of
law is to keep sound the society it
serves." Sanitary laws, pure food laws,
and laws .determining conditions of
labor which- Individuals are powerless
to determine for themselves are inti
mate parts of the very business of jus
tice and legal efficiency.'
These are some of the things we
ought to do, and not leave the others
undonethe old-fashioned, never-to-be-neglected,
fundamental safeguarding
of property and of individual , right.
This is the high enterprise of the new
day; to lift everything that concerns
our life as a nation to the light that
shines from the hearthflre of every
man's conscience and vision of the
right. It is inconceivable that we
Bhould do this aa partisans; it is in
conceivable we should do it in ignor
ance of the facts as they are or in
blind haste. We shall restore, not de
stroy. We shall deal with our econ
nmin RVRtem as it is and as it may
be modified, not as it might be if we
had a clean sheet of paper to write
upon; and step by step we shall make
it what it should be, in the spirit oi
those who question their own wisdom
and seek counsel and knowledge, not
shallow self-satisfaction or the excite
ment of excursions whither they can
not tell. Justice, and only justice,
shall always be our motto.
Nation Deeply Stirred.
And yet it will be no cool process
of mere science. Tho nation has been
deeply stirred, Btirred by a solemn
passion, stirred by the knowledge or
wrong, of ideals, lost, of government
too often debauched and made an in
strument of evil. The feelings with
which we face this new age of right
and opportunity sweep across our
heart-strings like some air out of
God's own presence, where Justice and
mercy are reconciled and the judge
and the brother are one. We know
our task to be no mere task of politics
but a task which shall search us
through and through, whether we be
able to understand on? time and the
need of our people, whother we be in
deed their spokesmen and Interpre
ters, whether we have the pure heart
to comprehend and the' rectified will
to choose our high course of action.
This is not a day of triumph; It is
a day of dedication. Here muster, not
the forces of party, but the forces of
humanity. Men's hearts wait upon us;
men's lives hang in the balance; men's
hopes call upon us to say what we
will do. Who shall live up to the

Have you ever stopped to think Just
what "economy" In baking really means?
Bom Jolks seem to have the Idea that
saving a little on the cost of the mate

Others are of the opinion that they have
been economical when they buy the low-

ut both are wrong. For the real econ
omy tho economy that counts consists In
doing awu with the failures that so
often waste far more than Is saved In
buying low-priced materials.
And that beyond a doubt la the reason
that Calumet Baking Powder Is the favor

prevents failures and guarantees suc

as economy.
