They liiiow better, for If there le one thing more tlinn another the American peo ple admire llrynn for, It la directness and tho courage to "speak the thing hi will." No other man with lilt re epontilbllltlos, In our public life today, la pollttcHlly mi hrsvo ami honest tie he.

The entlie letter la aa meaty aa a nut. and worthy of bis reputation aa a fearless and acute political thinker.

(liy David Utarr Jordan. t'realdeBt of BtaHdfonl Vnlrcrslty.) There are four enemies that hare atnod In the path of man. Thaas are aiiatocraey, militarism, slavery, and Imncrlallsttt. There am various other enemies, but those are tbe four nreh ormmIm In the pfltillsal tense. They all spring out or tb. I dm that man be longs not to himself, 1ml that ho be longs, iHxIy and soul, to somebody or something else which owns him. These four enemies In n dangerous garb con front the United States today, "Rehlller says that the tyrant reach hands to each other--that thoy roach to eaeh other the bands. Thoy stand together now. Theke four stand to gether now. Wherever there Is one, the other Is. Aristocracy, starery, mil itarism and itMpertallam. Tbty rsaah other's bands. They all have their fair, attractive aide. They are defended sometimes at the fireside. Slavery was discussed ami defended from ninny a pulpit In Mew Knglantl. Aristocracy has lis fair side. The foundation or a quality Is aris tocracy; the foundation of our liberty la rebellion against It -the very thing we came here for. There Is a fair side of slavery and n fair side of militarism. How clean the streets can be kept under military dis cipline and how free from nnlael llow oaslly people enii he sent to bed at dark If It be desired. There la a fair stds of Imperialism. You will find In many places that nlno tenths ot the people believe It Is u good thing for the world. May be It la, but when we come to resd history from the one side to the other we will nnd thsl the Ilrltlsh people have been debauched by tholr course In. India and that the Hindoos have been cursed.

The heresy or Imporlaltam la tho most ilsngerbus that haa arisen since the heresy or secession, ami It must lie fought as vigorously as the heresy or ocpnmIoii.

If we admit them with all the degradation which they imut bring Into our politics, we must Like the consequence. It Is better thst we should lie just snd faithful to our own principles and to the principles of tlod and that we ahould In our laws he no respecters ot pet sons, because If In our laws we are respecters of persons we must go the way or empire, as all empire has gone. The best way In which the growth of any man or nation has ever been pro moted has lieen through self-government democratically looking after Its own a traits We do not expect that self-government will always ha. good government.
