men with good red blood In their veins.
We had Just ns well submit gracefully
to forty-eight hours of noise. We have
figured It all out many a time that pa
, . ti iollsm Is not shown by « series of ex-'
plosions, but somehow our theories fall
to work out In practice. Even while the
editor la engaged In looking Into fhd
philosophy, psychology nnd Hie meta
physics of the event, the boys Just bf
yond the window are celebrating lu u'
more direct and practical way; Bang!,
Whlxs! Bourn! Thus all arguments are
met, all fine distinctions exploded along
with the crackers.
He it so; most of us were boys once;
in fact, since we come to think of It,
that has been the state uf all of us.
True, in a former generation there was
less noise.
When a nervous old lady
or an irritable old unele bade
us be
quiet, of course we obeyed.
But the

Well, we are told that 127 years ago
there was a struggle between English
men and Americans, and Huit Hie cause
was taxation without representation.
That L* a mistake; it minimizes the real

Just get down the history
of England and turn to that page which
chronicles the event ot Hie year 1215.
That was the beginning; the American
Revolution was the climax. It remain
ed tor the Anglo-Huxon In America to
construe the English BUI ot Rights.
Tbe treaty ot peace marked the end ot
tyranny. From that event, not only
America, but England dates her eman
cipation. Canada remained loyal to the
crown, but Hie success of the Revolu
tion proved her virtual emancipation.
Ellice that event England lias been able
to count upon the loyalty of her col
onies, although they are field to her by
bonds that are almost entirely senti
mental. The American Revolution war
a struggle of the people against the
prerogatives of the crown, and Hie re
bellion happened on this side of
water because it
vas our branch ol
the race that was oppressed. It niark
ed u great forward stride for the Anglo
Baxon race, and paved the way for Its
supremacy in world affairs a little over
a hundred years later.

Vain War Against Ritualism.
From the Now York Mall and Express.
In his letter to the English clergy
man Filllngham, who has evidently
come to this country to try to make
trouble for the ritualistic churches.
Bishop Potter distinctly transgressed
the Scriptural command. "Answer not
a fool according to his folly, lest thou
be like unto him.'' The Rev. Mr. Fll
llnglium's raid is bused on the notion
that the Protestant Episcopal Church
In this country Is somehow a state In
stitution, like the English Church, and
Is open to the resistance of any crunk
who may come along to make protest
on the ground that his constitutional
Magna Charta guaranteed rights to
see Just such und such vestments und
no other, to hear Just such and such
times and no other, are being violated.
This Is not the basis on which the
American church ts run. It was quite
open to the Rev. Mr. Flllingham to save
his feelings from the shock which they
received at 8 t. Mary Hie Virgin's by
going to All Souls'.

the participants.
While Philadelphia, of course, takes

here, all other eitles come in with large
contingents, so that the mingling of
these crowds give to the place a cos

to Cape May for years, and who for
seasons were only able to find, fur the
most part, residents of their own city
of Brotherly Love.
In order to accommodate tike rush of
visitors who are coming to Cape May,
both the Pennsylvania and the Phila
delphia and Reading railroad systems
put into effect their complete suipmer
schedules of trains last Saturday iiioi'n
The bathing, which has been good
for some time past, is getting better as
the season advances, and the number
who go in the surf has nearly reached
the normal summer proportions. They
all report the ocean as excellent and of
healhful temperature on the beach at
the fashionable bathing hour.
The Cape May Real Estate Company,
known as the PIMsburg syndicate, have
mad* wonderful strides during the week
as far as appearances go, fir the de

Among the visitors -to Cape May who are
