Frank Dewitt Talmage, D.D.
Los Angeles, Cal., July 'J. In this
sermon a new aapcet ls given to the
patriotic holiday. Tba text is III John
14, "Our frienda salute thee."
God pity the man without a country!
Cod pity sueh a man as Philip Nolan,
whom Kdward Everett Hale pictures
In bia famous story, who, 00 account of
his own sins, has lost the confidence
and the respect of the people among'
whom he was boru ami who on account
of those sius is excluded from the land
of hla hirth! God pity the man who
does not glory lu the sacrifices .'nd tri?
umphs of hu nation's heroea __d hero?
ine-, who does uot live In hil country's
hoi'es and who does not feel a thrill of
honest pride when he mentions his
birthplace and avows, as did Paul, "I
am a man which am a Jew of Tarsus,
a city lu Clltcla, a cltlaen of no mean
city." Cod pity, I say again, the man
who does uot feel In every part of his
body, mind and aoul that the laud of
his nativity ls the bast place In all tim
world lu which to be born, that his peo?
ple are the best people lu all the world
with whom to associate, does not hope
that the place of his cradle will las thc
place of his sepulcher!
Such ls the patrlot'e bout where'er wa
His Ant best country ever ls _t home.
"That man is little to be envied,"
wrote Iuch Kenneth, "whose patriot
Ism would not gain force upon his
country's plains of Marathon and
whose piety would not grow warmer
umoug her ruins of lona." That Amer?
ican's life ls uot to be Marte, who,
with a cold, lethargic temperament
and tramore, heart, could go aud look
at tlie Lexington couiuootm, where a
little handful of furumrs dared defy
the British soldiers, or upon Breed's
hill, commonly called Hunker Bill,
where the tlrst cannon sounded forth
the call for the minutemen to rally for
America's liberties, or upon Valley
Forge, where iu the awful winter of
1777 ami 1778 George Washlugtou and
Ms brave wife shh "red and shook in
ramp with the common soldiers, or up?
on old Independence hall of Philadel?
phia, where the immortal document
of the Declaration of ludep-udeuce
was signed, or upon Yorktown, where
Cornwallis and his officer, were com?
pelled to surrender their swords to
the allied French and Ami rican ti top*,
which surrender practically ended the
1 lo ?ly conillct for American freedom.
But ** I lw?g*_ to lilli k over m.\ Ker?
illon which was to precede our national
holiday of the Fourth of July I said to
myself: "Have wo truly triumphed over
England 1 Are we truly lndepondeut
of our mother land? Has not the Brit?
ish nation c. iquered us lu truth aud
In fact? Has she not mid does she not
annually send over great Invading ar?
mies and annually demand that we
pay her not only gold, but things more
precious than gold? Yes, yes," I said
to myself, "England ls not a conquered
rivul, but a conquering friend. In?
stead of preaching ? patriotic sermon
to show how the American nation has
triumphed over the British empire I
will twist my thorne nround. I would
tell how the British empire has con?
quered America. And when I show
how the British empire has conquered
us I will glory lu that conquest, for
as England aud Scotland aud Ireland
have put their impress upon us, so we
In turn through them are helping to
put our Impress upon the whole world
for civilization anil for Christ."
Hon the Ilrltlah ('on<|uer?Ml America.
The British empire, in the first place,
has conquered America by the power
of the tongue. The tlrst words that we
learned to lisp nt our mother's knee,
the words that we snouted on the play?
ground and spoke before the school
desk, the words that we read in the
morning newspaper and In library
book and hear from our lecture plat?
form and pulpit are English words.
The language of thc American people
ls the language of England's rose and
of Scotland's thistle aud of Ireland's
shamrock. The same tongue wc speak
was spoken for centuries In the British
Isles. Therefore, though a new nation
was born ou July 4, 1774 lt was not a
new race. It was simply the Godden
of Liberty as a bride leaving the old
j English homestead and setting up in
housekeeping for herself. She still be?
longed to the old English family. She
.till spoke the mother tongue. More
than that, she was dominated by ber
mother's accustomed ways of thinking
and doing thiugs. And this tie of lan?
guage which binds the American peo?
ple to their British kindred cannot be
found binding us to any other nation
on earth.
When two nations like the British
people and the American people speak
the same language they must Inevita?
bly be one In feeling, lt does not make
much difference who sits upon the
English throne or who ls In America's
presidential chair, the two nations are
oue. They are one because they have
the same teachers. They are ono be?
cause they have the same legends. Tue?
are one because they naturally think
alike, whether they will or no. This
fact was beautifully Illustrated some
years ago when John Hay, then Amer
lean ambassador to London, spoke al
the unveiling of the bust of Slr Waltei
Scott In Westminster abbey.
"The books a boy reads," said Mr
Hay, "are those mo<d ardently admired
and longest remembered, and Ainerlcfl
reveled In Scott when the country was

and England on a bicycle.
From filasgow I went to Ayr. There
I fouon that my youthful idol, Burns,
once lived. Iroiu Ayr I went to Ban?
nockburn and Stirling castle. There I
found that Bunker Hill was only an
echo of Stirling castle. Those old Scot?
tie, chiefs inspired America's ludo
peudonce. Prom Bannockburn I went
to Edinburgh. There I stood at the
gravee of Guthrie nnd chalmers aud
went ltto John Knox's old home and
recognised these men ns my 'embers.
From Edtnburgh I went down to the

my poets. There 1 reverently stood by
the roadside while a nurse led John
Ruskin past me- John Buskin then

From there I went up to London. Al?

England has conquered America by
the power of the tongue. Because the
same linguistic doors are opened to
both people the two nations are one in
sympathy and one In life. There ls an
old Baying among the Spaniards, "Co?
lumbus sot sall from Spain and dis?
covered America, but not until Wash?
ington Irving set sall for Spain was
the Alhambra discovered for the
Americans." That is true. From near?
ly all foreign la nd j are we separated
by the great "towers of Babel, the
towers.of unknown tongues." Around
these or over these but few of us have
tia linguistic ability to go or to climb.
But, th*n_h lietween us and England
rolla the Atlantic ocean _.<nhi niles
wide, the bridge of I common language
spans it. Over that bridge every day
walk UM British statesmen, the Brit?
ish reformers, the British authors, the
British preachers, the British leaders
of thought.
The British empire has conquered us
by the tongue, hut not by that alone.
Every year she studs over a great In?
vading army. This army of Invaders
ure stout of muscle and clear of eye
and brave of heart. They have thc
bravery to croea the seas. Y'es, but
they are also brave enough to bring
ulong their wives and children, and
gold, and picks, und shovels, and ma?
sons' trowels, and plumb lines. They
plainly and bluntly declare that they
have come to capture our lauds, and
sit upon our me ????andie thrones, and
form their colon;....lion settlements.
And as soon as they cnn get a foothold
here they say they will send over for
their fathers and mothers and brothers
and sisters to conic and live with them
in their now homes which they have
built in tho new land and which they
are ulrendy beginning to rule.
We find In America the English and
the Scotch and the Irish families every?
where. Supposing I should ask all
those whom 1 address to arise nud say
who were born lu the British Isles and
who are sons and daughters and grand?
children of ancestors who were boru
there, how many do you suppose would
stand up? A twentieth? A tenth? A
fourth? Yes, I think a fourth or even a
third ls not overstating thc numbers.
When the original thirteen colonies
won their nations 1 Independence we
had nil told In this country between
three and four millions of people. We
then had n smaller population than has
the present city of New York. In a lit?
tle over a hundred years wc have near?
ly HO.fxXt.OOO Inhabitants. Whence did
these people come? From the Ameri?
can cradle? Yes. The American stork
has budded her nests in the chimneys
of many homes. But thc American
stork from 4,000,000 pareuts could not
produce 80,*H)O,0iXi living descendants
in a little over a hundred years. The
vast numbers of the American Inhabit?
ants today enme over ns emigrants
from Europe or their fathere or grand
fathers came thus. And by far tho
largest proportion of these emigrants
came as an Invading army from the
shores of England and Bcptland and
The Great British Array.
Great is the British army of emigra?
tion! England defeated Napoleon Bo?
naparte at Waterloo with an army of
less than 70,000 men. The British em?
pire hurled back the Russian Slav from
the shores of the Black sea In the Cri?
mean war with an army of only 80,000
men. Havelock fought Lls way up
from tim coast to Lucknow and Cawn
pur with only 1,200 men. Robert
Clive, afterward Lord Clive, subjugat?
ed the whole Indian empire with only a
few thousand troops.

victory hy a small Dumber of emi?
grants. From Clasgow and Liverpool
anil London during the last hundred
years she has sent forth her best sons
and daughters by the hundreds of thou- '
sands and by the millions. Still that
Invading army ls calling across Hie
Atlantic for more re enforcements.
"Send me my brother and sister," calls
back the Irish servant girl to her par?
ents on Killarney lakes. "Let them
come to me, ai d I will pay their way."
"Send me the girl I once courted
among tho highland! or wooed under
the shadow of Linlithgow while I read
to her the triglc Story of beautiful
Queen Mary, who was born among
yonder hills," .vrtten the young Amer?
ica ni/ed Scotchman who ls winning a
fortune In the new world. "Send nie
my sisters and let them flee the Lou?
don fogs," writes the young English?
man who ls limning o Texas ranch.
Ah. yes, the Invading army of the
British empire ls growing. Her sons
and daughters have been rapidly mak?
ing a auccess among Michigan hills,
and Georgia, pines, and western prai?
ries, aud In metropolitan New York.
Am I wrong li statiig that the British
empire has ai du lr ld siege and cap?
tured Bunker Hill, with her Immi?
grants every year coming Into New
York harbor?
But the Brltl h empire demands from
us her annual -iports of gold. We are
told that the A nerlcau struggle for lib?
erty was bro'.gbt to n climax when
King George's prime minister demand?
ed that the thl teen colonies pay a tax
on tea. The I wtofl tea party was or?
ganized. One dark night a number of
young men, armed to the teeth, entered
those ships a;d tossed overboard all
the boxes cont hiing that imported tea.
"Taxatlou wi bout representation ls
wrong!" the pc iple cried. "We will not
pay a cent to the British throne untl1
King George allows our people to vote
In the house of commons." But when
George Wash! lgton took the oath of

did we then cease to have any further

The Co-e-ext hr British Capital.

saying to our miners, "You run my

have their moneys Invested in our

one of thc surest gnarann - - that Eng?
land will never go to war against
America ls that, as a financial uutiou,
she cannot afford to do so. She would
not only be fighting her own sons and

If the British empire ilonilnntos us In
a linguistic aid social and industrial
way, how mu?b more does she influ?
ence us in n religious way! Suppos?
ing our chun'li's had been the out?
growth of thc Spanish cathedral in?
stead of the Scottish kirk. What
would have happened! Supposing the
men who laid the religious foundations
of our theological seminaries had come
from another i lass than the Puritans,
dominated by the spirit of Rev. John
Robinson. _FDpOSlng the men who
taught us our Ideas of morality and
right had not been Inspired by the
teachings of a John Knox. Would we
still be the nation whose (tod ls Lord,

gospel tires which are today burning
upon American hearths were once
started by tin live coals of the old
Puritans and t ie old covenanters.
The spiritual Ups of many centuries
nre pleading trom mir pulpits today,
not spiritual lips which have been boru
within the las' century. One of the
most draruatl- and pathetic stories
ever told wna that of Cyrus W. Field
when he desi ribed before the New
York chamber of commerce "The Sto?
ry of the Ath ntlc Cable." For thir?
teen long yea l this persistent oper?
ator had struggled against contempt
and ridicule o all sorts. At last the
cable was suc> essfully laid. Then the
Great Eastern sailed out to sea to
grapple for the cable, which had boen
lost In mldocecn the year l>efore. Two
miles and a half tho grappling hooks
sank to the bo toni of the ocean. Day
after day ano week after week the
work went on. At last the grappling
hooks caught. Slowly and surely from
Its bed of prlrrevnl ooze the lost cable
was lifted up. But no sooner did the
end appear al ove the surface of the
sen than the in 'U raised a cheer. Then
like a frightened creature It seemed to
tear Itself away and fall back to its
old couch.
Ora* W Field's Courage.
Again nnd again went the huge grap?
pling Irons over the ocean bed. At
last the hooks ngain caught. Slowly
nnd surely this time the cable was
again lifted. "Only when it was
brought over the bow aud on to thc
deck did the men dnre to breathe,"
said Mr. Flelc\ "Then wp carried lt
ulong to thc electrician- room to see
if our loug sought treasure was living
or dead. A few minutes of suspense,
and lt told of the lightning current
ngnln set free. Then did the long pen'
up passions of the men burst forth
Some turned away their hoads ant
wept, others broke into cheers. Then
with thankful hearts, we turned ow
fnces to the vest. But soon the wine
rose, and for thirty-six hours we wen
exposed to all the dangers of an At lan
tic storm. Yet In the very height am
fury of the gale as I sat In the elec
trlcian's room a flash of light cann
from the deep telling me that those s<
dear to me whom I had left on tin
bntiKS of tue iiunsou wen- ??ti dwi
following me with their wishes aud
their prayers. This was like a whisper
of God from the sea bidding me keep
heart and hope." And so, like Cyrus
Vi. Field, when I nm sniling over the
troubled seas of America's life I find
a supernatural power speaking to me.
From my hand there ls an Inspired
cable running, lt reaches not, how?
ever, to tho living of the earth, but
to the living of heaven. It ruus clear
back to the Massachusetts Plymouth
colony; clear back to Scrooby manor
house; clear back to the Scotch cov?
enantors. The old religious leaders of
England nnd Scotland and Ireland are
speaking to me and saying: "Be of
good courage, ye American people.
The same God whom wu worship you
worship. The same God who watched
over us In the ages past ls the same
God who will lead the Knglish and the
American peoples now forward in the
great work of the civilization aud the
ChrlstiauUution of the round world
redeemed from sin."

As 1 believe the British empire, un?
der God, has religiously made this na?
tion what lt ls, so I hope that the Brit?
ish empire and the American people,
side by side, nre going to dominate
the world everywhere for Christ. It ls
all folly for any one to state that the
American government and the British
government are not working hand in
hand. When war was about to be de?
clared against Spain In order to liber?
ate downtrodden Cuba, some oue said
to Mr. McKinley: "How is England?
Will England uphold you lu this war?".
Thou the president replied: "England
is all right. England ls America's
friend." Aye, yes, tho British govern?
ment ls our friend. She will always
be our friend. Side by side the two
English speaking nations shall yet
Bettie the Asiatic troubles. Side by
side they will yet settle the African
uud the Turkish troubles. As their
christian missionaries in foreign lauds
are now working for a common Chris?
tian church, so ultimately their Chris?
tian soldiers shall yet work side by
side to right all civil wrongs and to
make war in the future an impossi?
bility, for then public opinion aud pub?
lic policy will never be allowed to ba
Why am I preaching this as a Fourth

Jealous of England. 1 denounce the

trouble with England. We have had
two or three big family rows. Winn
Juli were grOWiUg Up III your lather's
home all the children wera not always
at peace. Your mother every little
while had to come to the rescue aud
P air oil upon the troubled waters.
But those domestic troubles did not
prove that the brotbera did not love
brothers and Bisters 1 ive sisters. Wc
have had a few domestic quarrels with
our brothers and sisters across the
seas, dur relatives living there are
not saints. Perhaps some of the sin?
ners are on this side of the Atlantic
as well as on the other side. But,
though we have had our national dif?
ferences, they are only domestic dif?
ferences. The two nations are of one
blood. The two nations have the one
great purpose for the civilisation of
the world for Christ. So let us one
and all speak more ubout the good the
British people have done us and the
good they are doing us. Then by
speaking about the good which our
British brothers nnd sisters have done
and are doing we will be drawn closer
and closer together and as two nations
be more nble speedily to accomplish
the work which God has given the
English speaking race to do.
In closing this Fourth of July ser?
mon I would end lt with the sentiment
with which Cyrus W. Field closed his
speech at the chamber of commerce
banquet of 1866. "I dose with this
sentiment." he said?"England and
America clasping hands ncross the sea.
May this firm grasp be a pledge of
friendship for all generations." Aye,
more than this! "May the common
brotherhood of the Anglo-Saxon race
be the open door through which all
peoples shall enter into and kneel In
the great temple, where they shall
worship the universal fatherhood of
God and the brotherhood of man
through Jesus Christ our Lord." Hal?
leluiah! Then shall the sword be turn?
ed Into the plowshare ami the spear
Into the pruning hook. Then man
shall never bottle with man, and man
shall not lenrn war any more. Amen
and amen!
