A NATIONS GREATNESS
In a long and able apology ior th <
mn who under tho pretens of ben
tfiting humanity have robbed man
kind of more than a fair share of th
word wealth Editor Herns of the
Ocala Banner allege that the true
and lrtins and endurin greatness oi
t naion comes through th silent and
pupating channels of trade
That is through venality through
h e worship and acquirement of th
almighty dollar in fine through the
employment of armies of laborers in
buildms up individual fortune 5 Tha
is tho gist of Editor Harris argument
which is simply a plea for Mr Rock
efeller and his class
j To controvert Editor Harris asser
I tion that the gratness of a nation
I comes through the channels of trade
jjit is enough to point to the Elizabeth
I an ere when brain not business
made England the greatest countr
on earth But greater even than the
golden ag of brains is the golden age
of philanthropy of practici Chris
I itanity That nation is greatest in
which the intellectual and spiritual
I
characteristics of the people have
I reached the highest degree oi cultiva
tion and development
The history of ancient nations and
municipalities as Carthaee Tyre

Xapolton aid that Christ establish

Napoleon spoke tlie truth England I
and the United States today are what
they are solely because of the pre r
dominating iniiuence of the Christian
religion I
IH rein is the offense of Mr Rock <
feller and his fellows They have
not applied Christian principles to
their mon yetting By crushing op
position and reducing the cost of pro I
durtion and delivery of comniodiiee
they have reduced prices tint at tie

It is as if a man owning R bore I
I

i a combination of his neighbors to sell
him at less than his value end the
r purchaser who is possessed of bright

original owwr sells him to a third
j party at more than his actual value
J and in so dola makes a profit of a

When Christopher Columbus dis
covered the Xew World we art told
by tie less an historian than Washing
ton Irvine that he was welcomed to
these shores by a gentle mild guile
less people I
These people had not yet tasted of
the fruit of the tree of knowledge if
so they bed failed to adorn them j
selves with the mi meat of ig leaves
made famous by our first parents 1
Columbus found them entirely j
itwde They lived a coimmmal life I
Ti ry haW everything in eomiaoiiJ

They wre injpndl nt happy free
Hill and valley mountain and sea
UT their
They worshipped the Great White
Spirit Their government was patri
archial They had no ships of war no
standing armies Thy were ignorJ
anant of the use of fire arms and
heir o ensve and defensive weapons
were lances hardened a the end by
fire or pointed with rlint or the ttt th
or bones of a fish Thes11 were used
Ii to protect themselves from wild
blasts and not from one another
They bad no penitentiaries nor pris I
on camps no suiliiiaes no thumb
screws nor other relics of religious
I
torture
Columbus believed that he had dis
1 covered a new paradise The woods
were redolent with the perfume of
j spices and the song of birds The
i stream were pure and limpid And
abounded in nsh
i
There was no private ownership
in the soil
There was ao squalor nor want nor

As poetized by Alexander Pope i
i
Lol the poor Indian whose untutor

thirst for gold i
To be contents his natural tieeire I
He asks ao angels wiat ao seraphs j

But thinks admired to that equal
sky
His faithful dog shun bear hUn com
peay
To all intents and purposes the ia
diaa was living as Adam and Eve ia
the Garden of Edea before the fall
guileless and innocent How long he
had lived on those shores is a mere
matter of speculation but it is safe to
say that had he n ver been discover
ed by the wMte mannthe civilized
wanhis untutored mind would
still have been content to ramble
within the limits pronounced by Pope
and if it be true that tenoraace is
bliss he would perhaps ave been i
all the happier for Iz i
Had the Indian been swept oS these H
shores by some fatal malady he would j
have left behind him no trace of his I
t
existence except his bones that may
have escaped the ravages of time I

When ti > Moors were driven out of I
Spain by the Christians we are told j
by another United States historian j
Dr John W Draper that they were
living in palatial homes with glass i
window tiled floors luxuriant baths
and other articles of usefulness and
splendor
Cordova boasted of more than two
hundred thousand houses and more <
han a million inhabitants After sun
se a man might walk hroush It for1
en miles by the light of the public
amps Seven hundred years after 1
his ther was not as much as one j j

Mr Henry George attributed the
decline and fiaal downfall of the Ro
man Empire to the private ownership
of the soiL All the lands finally bej
came concentrated in the bauds oi m
few and the great mass of the people
were not flrrnly rooted to the soil and
became aliens
Dr Draper says that the conceatraj
tion of power and increase of immor 1
ality proceeded with equal step in
its earlier ages the Roman dominion j
was exercised by a few thousand per j
sOilS then it passed into the hands of
a score of families then it was sus
tained for a moment by a few individ
lals anl at List was seized by one
man who became nAter of one huni
c red and twenty million
As the prucets went on tht virtues
which bad adorned the earlier times
disappeared and in the end were re
placed by orlmes that cannot be re
peated in polite literature
Caesar put a premium on marriage
and cave regards to women who had
many children He fcad more coa
cern and had a need for more con
cern as to race suicide than our
strenuous president
But what else does Dr Draper say
1 He says that the Roman demagogues
i a s is the instinct of their kind in ail
1 aces and in all countries mad pout
leal capital by attacking industrial
f capitaLfind I
I We and this hysteria sweeping i
over the United States today A great 1 1
hue and cry is being raised against i

Can a nation endure that resolutely i
refuses to mere out justice to the rich i

Quoting he word of Napoleon the
editor of ihs Punta Gorda Herald
says that Christ established the only i

I such colossal proportions
j they have so many men in their em

rhe same as other persons engaged i

Like the man who set his trap for
coons the editor of the Herald hits
the Standard Oil people gwine and
eomirV
j
He ends his article by saying that j
lit they would decrease the price ofi
ioli they would benefit the whole peo
pie would live up to the golden i
rule and be entitled to its promised j
reward yet in the beginning of the ar J
tide the editor says the great sin of I
Ii Rockefeller and his associates in j
business was in lowering the price of I
oil and crushing out competition
Like a good many others the Her
ald is going to damn them if they do i
or if they dont
The Herald ends its article in say
Ing that these men have contributed
nothing to the real greatness of this I
nation but on the contrary their I
conduct has a direct tendency to place I
our country in the doomed class to I
which Venice and Carthage once
i
proudly belonged
Is giving millions to the promotion
of education nothing Is carrying on I
colossal trade nothing Is giving em
ployment to labor and paying big
wages nothing Has Mr Flakier I
contributed nothing to the upbuildina
of this state Is converting a wilder
1
ness into fruitful fields and orchards
nothing Is advertising the resources j
of the state nothing Is building pa i
latial hotels and making Florida dur j
lug the winter season what Switzer
land is in summer to th world noth
ing Is bridging the ocean said by
e ngneers to be one of the great enter
prises of the century nothing
The rich men of Venice and Car
thase did not givE colossal fortunes
to public benefactions
Men are not slothful servants who
refuse to bury their talents but on
the contrary employ them to useful
and beneficent purposes
It is to this class of men that Christ
save his commendation in one of his
marked characteristic and most in
comparable parables
We repeat that the
greatness of
a
aatioa is found along the
lines
of in
dustrial enterprise along the paths
of pace when the temples of Janus
are securely closed it is
found in
tent and field and shop it is found
where the atmosphere is dense from
rhe smoke of
puffing engines and the
sea white with sails
the builders of
1 nation are the
men and the women
behind the keyboard loom and throt
Iethe men who have laid bare the
ruitful womb of the universe and
have linked the forces of nature to
man as his servant and handmaiden
