Reported Back by the Committee on July 2nd Infant Has Grown to be a Mighty Power. (Staff Correspondence of The Republican.) WASHINGTON, D. C, July 4. It is not known here whether the American idea of celebrating the Fourth of July the anniversary of the birth, of the na tion has reached Hawaii in its complete form or not. It is to be hoped that it Is not there yet. For Instance, Washington to-day is like a battlefled. Firearms, bombs, firecrackers and other noise-making devices are going off in the streets. There is no peace of mind for man or beast, but the American small boy Is happy. The Washington Post this morning prints an excellent summary of how ,the Fourth of July happened to be the great national holiday, and what it all means. Here is the summary: "Although the Constitution of the United States ia very far from being a reaffirmation of, or in harmony with, the Declaration of Independence, the pdoption of that immortal document wa& the birth of this republic It was the work of the Second Continental Congress, which met In. Philadelphia May 10. 1775. agreeably to. the recommendation ot the First Continental Congress, which met and aHjourned In 177-!. Only twelve colonies were represented, although a delegate was present from a single parish In Georgia. Hostilities by the British troops, under General Gage, had been, commenced before this Congress assembled. A letter from the Provincial Congress of Massachusetts, giving an account of the battles, of Lexington and Concord. April 19, was one of the first Item? of. baslsess brought before the body. That letter reported what Mass&chusetts'had dose in the initial stage of the war, aad reqested the direction sad assistant of the Coagresk In that letter was this suggestion: "With the greatest defereace, we beg leave to suggest that & powerful army oh the side ot America hath bees considered by this Cofigrss as the only Means left to stezn tfe rapid precrees of & tyraaakal y ENTIRE STOCK ENTJRE STOCK Ltd. t Z istry. In accordance with that suggestion, defensive measures were taken. An army was organized, and on the 15th of June, 1775 more than a year Lefore the Declaration George Washington, a Virginia delegate, was unanimously elected general of all the forces. Hitherto, the question ot separation from the mother country had not been publicly discussed. But on the 22d of April, 1776, the convention of North Carolina authorized their delegates in Congress "to concur with those in other colonies in declaraing independency." This was the first public act of any colonial convention or assembly in f i-vor of that step. On the 15th of May the Virginia convention unanimously "instructed" their delegates in Congress "to propose to that respectable body to declare tho United Colonies free and independent States, absolved from all allegiance or dependence od the Crown or Parliament of Great Britain." Thereupon, Richard Henry Lee, one of the Virginia delegates, submitted a resolution declaring that 'the United Colonies are and ought to oe free and independent States," etc. This was on the 7th of June. On the 8th it was debated in committee of the whole. Mr. Pitkin says: "No question of greater magnitude was ever presented to the deliberation of a deliberative body, or debated with more energy, teloquence and ability." On the 10th the resolution was again discussed and adopted. The committee that is, the delegates in committee of the whole recommended that further consideration of the subject be post poned till the 1st or July, but that meanwhile a committee be appointed to draft a declaration of independence. The members of that committee were: Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Roger Sherman, and Robert Livingston. On the 2d of July the Lee resolution of Independence, which had been agreed to in committee,. was formally adopted by Congress. The declaration committee reported its great work on the 2Sth of Juneand on the 4th of July that paper was adopted. This is, In brief, the story of the "birth of the republic Its baptism was years of heroic, self-sacrificing struggle, years of war, of deprivation, years of darkness, but never an hour of despair. Its confirmation rite was the organization6f "a more perfect union," the most grandly successful political event In the world'-s history. Looking back through the burled years to that 4th of July, which came 121 jrears ago to-day, noting what has grown from the seed then planted, comparing the giant with the infant, who has any reason for lack of faith as to the nation's future? Is not what we hare done an assurance of continued welldoing? E. S. L NUMBERS ABE ON THE WAT. When.
