NELSON'S Nelson Manufacturing Co., Inc. RICHMOND. VA. Declaration of Independence IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776 IIICN, In the co'i.-.se of Luiran events. It becomes " necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which hare connected them with another, and to assume, among the powers of the earth, the sep arate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which Impel them to the separa tion. We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal ; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap piness. That, to secure these rights, governments are Instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that, whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, It is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute a new government, laying Its foundation on such principles, and or ganizing lis powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. I'rudence, indeed, will dictate, that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accus tomed. But when a long train of abuses and usur pations, pursuing Invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, It Is their right. It Is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient suf ferance of these colonies; and such is now the neces sity which constrains them to alter their former sys tems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated in juries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world. lie has refused his assent to laws the most whole some and necessary for the public good. lie has forbidden his governors to pass laws of Immediate and pressing Importance, unless suspend ed In their operation till his assent should be ob tained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them. lie has refused to pass other laws for the ac commodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of represen tation In the legislature a right inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only. lie has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the de pository of their i5ublic records, for the sole pur pose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measure. lie has dissolved representative houses repealedly, for opposing, with manly lirniness, his invasions on the rights of the people. He has refused, for a lona time after such disso lutir"is. to cause others to he elected, whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the State remaining, in the meantime, exposed to all the dangers of Invasions from without, and con vulsions within. He haa endeavored to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the laws for the naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands. He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judi ciary powers. He has mnde judges dependent on his will alone for the tenure of their ofiiccs, and the amount and payment of their salaries. He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their, substance. He has kept among us Fn times of peace, standing without the consent of our legislatures. affected to render the military independent of, in. -rior to, the civil power. He has combined with others to subject us to a Jurisdiction foreign to our constitutions, and un acknowledged by our laws; giving bis assent to their acts of pretended legislation : For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us ; For protecting them, by a mock trial, from pun ishment for any murders which they should com mit on the Inhabitants of these States; For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world ; For Imposing taxes on lis without our consent: For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by Jury; For transporting us beyond seas, to be tried for pretended offences ; For abolishing the free system of English laws In a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging Its boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and fit In strument for Introducing the same absolute rule Into these colonies; For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering, fundamentally, the forms of our governments; For suspending our own legislatures, and declar ing themselves Invested with power to legislate for us In all cases whatsoever. He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection, and waging war against us. He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people. He Is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with cir cumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation. He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken cap tive on the high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fail themselves by their hands. lie has excited domestic insurrection among us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare Is an undistinguished destruc tion of all ages, sexes, and conditions. In every singe of these oppressions we have peti tioned for redress in the most humble terras; our repeated petitions have been answered only by re peated Injury. A prince whose character Is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, Is unfit to be the rr.ler of a free people. Nor have we been wanting In our attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature to ex tend an unwarrantable Jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native Justice and magnanimity; and we have conjured them, by the ties of our common kin dred, to disavow these usurpations, which would in evitably interrupt - our connections and correspond ence. They, too, have been deaf to the voice of justice and consanguinity. We must, therefore, ac quiesce in the necessity which denounces our separa tion, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in pence friends. We, therefore, the Representatives of tle United States of America, In General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do.'in the name arid hy the authority of the good people of these c "'Vs. solemnly publish and declare, That these u. '. I Colonies are, and of right ought to he free and in dependent states: that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown, and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is, arv' ought to he, totally dissolved : and that as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract al liances, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which Independent states may of right t. And, for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Provi dence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor. 6 BCLLAN3 Mot water Sure Relief lQ)rO INDIOCSTlQi.

(By the Associated Press.) rr. Theobald von Bethmann Hollweg, former German chancellor, of fered on May 20, 1919, to surrender himself for trial by the allies but withdrew the offer on the specific request of the government which at that time took the view that German accused of causing the war or of acts of violation of the rules of civilized warfare should be tried either before a local court or German judges. His attitude at that time therefore was held to be undesirable. Xow, however, after peace has been signed and the Germans have agreed to extradite persons whom the allies desire to place on trial, the action of the former chancellor in offering to surrender to the allies is looked upon as purely personal. The government does not object to his action as it is believed he is one of those whom the entente intends to bring before the high tribunal. M m m K M 5C 1? BOAT SCHEDULE MORNING.
