Although the Liberty Bell is the |
property of the City of Philadelphia,
title to it having been acquired in
1S1G by a sale made by the commonwealth
of Pennsylvania of the State
House (Independence Hall) and all of
its grounds, buildings and appurtenances.
including the bell, furniture
and all other property belonging to
the State House, the whole being purchased
by the city for the sum of
$70,000, there is not a single person
in any State of the Union who does
not feel a personal interest in the bell.
Thousands and thousands of people
of the country have bared their heads
while standing before it, and no one
can be found who would allow another
to do it an injury.
It was this bell which announced
the declaration of independence, from
which date. July S, 1776, it has rightfully
been termed the Liberty Bell. "
The record of this historic bell from
the time it was first brought to this
country for Llie purpose of calling: j
the assembly of Pennsylvania together
until the memorable day. July S. ^
1S35. when it forever became silent (
while tolling in memory of John Marshall.
chief justice of the United
States Supreme Court, as his body
was being taken to Virginia for burial,
forms an important chapter in the
early history of the country. ^
Though primarily intended only as
a bell to call the members of "the asj
sembly together, morning and afternoon.
during the sessions of x t hat i
body, it was early destined to fill an
important place among other bells
then, in use, and the passage taken
from the Bible. "Proclaim liberty
throughout all the land, unto all the
inhabitants thereof." lias since been
looked upon as a prophetic inspiration.
In 1751 the superintendent of the
State House in Philadelphia was directed
to order a bell from the agent
of the province in London. The requirements
were that it should weigh
about 2,000 pounds and bear this lettering:
"Proclaim liberty throughout
all the land, unto all the inhabitants
thereof."?Lev. xxv. 10. In August
ot: the year following: the bell was
brought to this country, but in September
of that year it was cracked
by a stroke of the clapper. To a
Philadelphia firm was given the contract
to recast the bell, that tlrrn being
Pass & Stow. The recasting did
not give full satisfaction, and the founders
were given the privilege of again
recasting it. That work was completed
in May 1753. and in the month
following it was raised and fixed in
the Statq House steeple.
Since that date, until the present
time, the bell has been out of the
State House, the "Cradle of Liberty."
but six times, the first time being
in September 1777, when it was removed
to Allentown, Pa., to prevent
if falling into the hands of the British.
There it remained until . the
British army evacuated Philadelphia.
All of its other journeys were for exhibition
purposes, its trips being as
follows: fn 1SS-7, to New Orleans:
in ISt13 to Chicago; in 1.895 to Atlanta,
Ga.; in 1902 to Charleston. S. C..
and in 1903 to Boston, to represent
or U10 onnivurRarv nf the
battle ot' Bunker Hill, a celebration at.
which the display of the famous relic
of the Revolution for independence was
most fitting.
Among the noteworthy instances of
the ringing of the Liberty bell may
be mentioned the following: It rang
September 12, 17C4 to cail the assembly
together, when the Massachusetts
Bay votes were received, acquainting
the assembly with the instruction^
sent by that colony to its agent in
London, asking him to use his endeavors
to have the sugar act repealed,
and to prevent a stamp act or any
other imposition of taxes upon them
or the other American provinces. Ten
days lateri September 22. it rang to
call the assembly when that body
--?r.rwHnn rt fpn r in similar f
terms with the letter of the Massachusetts
assembly. A year later.
Septembe 9, 17C5, the bell rang ou an
important occasion, that in calling
the assembly together to consider a
resolution to accept a plan for a congress
of the colonies, which Anally
met on October 7, 1765. in New York.
On September 21. 1765, the bell convened
the assembly to consider the
act of Parliament Imposing stamp
and other duties upon all British subjects
in America. ,0n October 5, 17G5,
the bell was muffled and tolled as the
ship Royal Charlotte. bearing the
* r B
stamps lor Pennsylvania. New Jersey
md .Maryland, under convoy of the
roan-of-war, The Sardine, came up the
Delaware. On. October. 51, 17b5, when
the stamp act went into operation,
the bell was again muffled and tolled.
On February 4. 1771. the bell called
i town mee.ting in the State House
square, when it was resolved that the
Maims of Parliament to tax the colonies
was subversive to the constitutional
rights of the colonies, and that
Lhe union of the colonies ought to be
maintained. On February 4. 1771, the?
pell convened the assembly, when a
petition was sent to the king for the
repeal of the duty on tea, and again,
>n October 18. 1775, the bell called a
:own meeting, when resolutions were
passed denouncing the buyers and
rentiers 01 tea as eiieiuit?>
On Juno 1, 1771, when the port ol'
Boston was closed, the bell was mulled
and tolled. On June IS, that same
rear, the bell called another town
neeting in the State House square,
viien the people pledged the city of
Philadelphia to the common cause ol
The first tidings of the battle of
Lexington reached Philadelphia April
M. 1775. The following day the hell
rail on a public meeting, and record
says that 8,000 people assembled athe
State House and pledged themselves
to associate for the purpose of
lefending'themselves with arms, their
lives, liberty and property, against all
attempts to deprive them of them.
Its Greatest Deed.
The following year was a memorable
one, for it witnessed the birth of
(he United States. On May 10, 1775,
the second Congress began its sessions
in the State House. On June 7,
177C.. Richard Henry I-ee offered his
resolution for the independence of
the colonies. On June 27, 177G, a
declaration of the deputies of Pennsylvania.
expressing their willingness
to concur in a vote to the colonies,
declaring the colonies free and independent.
States, was read before Congress.
On June 28. 1776, the draft of
the Declaration of Independence was
submitted to Congress, which was
adopted on the evening of July 5,
177(5. Copies of the declaration were
^ v.,. i >,r>rini mn ndirur
sunt uy j^o*-? n/ ~ _
olllcers of the continental troops and
to all the counties oI the province.
On July S. 177G, at noon, the bell I
was runs? for proclamation of independence,
the place selected being in
the rear of the State House. On
September 2G, that same year, the bell,
then truly the Liberty bell, called together
for the last time the members
of the assembly of the province of
Pennsylvania, which party then dissolved.
On April 1G, 1783, the bell rang
the proclamation of peace, and from
that day on to the present time it has
always been known as the.? Liberty
bell. From that date until it was silenced,
in J 835, it proclaimed., the national
anniversary, ushered in the
now year, welcomed cnsunguisuwu
men. and tolled for the noble dead.
On Uafayette's visit to the hall of Independence.
where the declaration
was signed, the bell rang a welcome.
On July H, 1827. the fiftieth year of'
independence, and also, on that same
day, it. tolled the deaths of Tlioraas
Jefferson and John Adams.
July 8, 1S35, is the date of the bell's
last tolling. Oh that day the body
of Jplin Marshall, who was chief justice
of the United States Supreme
Court, was being conveyed to Virginia
for burial, and the bell was being
tolled during the funeral services.
Suddenly, and without any violence,
during the tolling, the bell cracked.
John Marshall was one of the greatest
men of tfre Revolutionary times,
and he was the last of those who
were associated with Washington and j
the signers of the Declaration of Independence.
His death, on July C, 1S35,
in Philadelphia, brought to a close the
revolutionary period of the history
of- the "United States. As the mission
of the bell was to proclaim liberty
"throughout the land, unto all the inhabitants
thereof," the crack which
devcloned while tolling on that mem
orable day can bo looked upon as a
fitting climax of the early history of
our country.
Charged With Murder of Man In Car.
Otis Hitt was arrested last night,
charged with the murder of the man
found dead in the box car on the Coal
and Coke Tailroad last week. He was
seen with the man previous to the
murder and afterwards displayed
some money with blood on it.

PARKIlRSBt'RG. W. \"a.. June S.? )ei
Great excitement was caused here tp
yesterday morning by the finding of pp
the body of u mar. at Belleville, in \y
this county, a short distance from wi
this city. an
The remains wore found by a party
of people who were traveling through to
the woods, and were in a badly decom- ati
posed condition. The remains of the tif
mail were well dressed and he is sup- wi
posed to liuvo been murdered. an
In the afternoon the coroner went en
out to view the remains and had at
them' removed to this city. He will ,j|f
make a thorough investigation of t p,
the case.
Those men who have seen the body un
have failed to recognize him and the
concensus of opinion is that he is Kjc
some stranger who was waylaid and (
tolled for his money. ,]c.

Ex-Gov. E. E. Jackson Quoted In a Jfl(
New York Interview. ^
"Ex-Governor Elihu lu. Jackson, of ^
.Maryland, who was* chief executive j
for the l'otir years ended 1X',)2, and j
who was last week named an elector- ^
at-large on the Democratic national j
ticket, is at the Waldorf," said the
New York Tribune yesterday. "Mr.
Jackson, whose given mime. Ulihii. ...
is "traditional in the Jackson family,
is a lumber manufacturer, and has j
cast every hailot he lias voted since ga
the first one 111 1S5S in the same pre- |
cinct in the east coast town of Salis- pa
Imry. j
"On the political situation the ex- 0
Governor said: "I believe the delegates
at St. Louis will evolve a con- ^
servative platform. It will lie useless j j,
to undertake the campaign on any ^
other sort. 1 also believe they will
name a candidate who will be recog- jj,
nized as conservative. If I had doubt- j.
cd it I would not. have permitted the ,
use of my name as a nominee for
elector-at-large. go
"Asked if it was understood in ^
Maryland that Senator Gorman would
, be a candidate, Mr. Jackson said: *1
I talked with him generally on a variety
of subjects, in all two or three ^v
hours, at the State convention last,
week, and nothing that he said would sjc
warrant me in the belief that he is
personally ambitious to secure the p j
nomination. On the contrary, he
seemed to be more anxious that a Jn,
candidate should be found that would co
unite all factions in the party and ,
attract, as he believes a conservative
candidate would, many outside the
party. The argument he used in 7n(
urging that the delegation be not instructed
was that if the delegates an
were not arbitrarily committed when
they went to the convention t.liey
could look over the ground and assist o{.
in the selection of the best man then
presented. Mc expressed no choice
among the candidates whose names 0?
have been mentioned,, and while in|
dicating no preference In.' manifestori
no prejudice.' "
