Globe Hlble PublisbingCo., Tvfl Chestnut St., 1'hlla ,Pa Memorable Oration That Preceded National Tempest. Then is uo morn noted Fourth of July oration ui ull the lolitf list than that o Charles Kujr iwr in Uoston in 1845. Ill theme was tru true grandeur of nations, which ho declared to Ih peace, and on tho anniversary of tho triumphant national independence resulting from a great war, and in the presence of tho military force or the commonwealth, tho diseourso was powerful philippic against war. It was memorable oration, thoroughly character istlo of the man, which really disclosed him to the public and perhaps to himself, Hut nothing could have more Kignally il lustrated the orator's want of a quick sense or humor. Thero were two other later and notable Boston Fourth of July orations. In 1858 Hufus Chonte. in his most fervent and characteristic vein and a Ihsxl of that po etle rhetoric in which he is wholly unsur passed among American orators, delivered a plea for tho Union in tho old conservative sense, and Kdward Everett, about a year before the war, recounted our greatness and depreciated the inevitable. J loth or ators were tho pensive poets of a vanished America. Closing his brilliant survey and insisting that our condition in 1858 as surod our health, our strength and our fu ture as indeed they did, but not as the orator surmised Choato said, but with anxious exultation, just as the great clvio storm was about to break: "This shadow that Hits across our grasses and is gone, this shallow ripple that darkens tho sur face of our broad and widening stream and passes away, this little perturbation which our telescopes cannot llnd and which our science can hardly find, but which wo know cannot change the course or hasten tho dtsjin of one star have these any ter rors for us?' Iheso are voices of a Fourth of July that is gone. It was not a flitting shadow nor n shallow ripple that tho orator saw Hut the tempest which they portended has purified tho air, and the Fourth of July eloquence of this year may happily devote itself to a service which was then hopeless because tho conditions of its success did not exist the service or, weaving an ever closer tie of national union. The words of Chonte, which when sixiken were pro found ly painful ami unreal from their vivid contrast with tho terrible fact, we can repeat today with tho joy of assured anticipation, happy if such a day shall not be desecrated by our service, happy if for us that descending sun shall look out on a more loving, more elevated, more united America. Uuffalo Express, FOUNDERS OF OUR LAWS. Remarkable Itody of Men Who Framed the I'll I ted States Constitution. History has no record of a more august assemblage of men than the constitutional convention of 17M7. It was composed In a large degree of thy men who had rendered important w tt Ico in the halls of legisla tion or upon the Held of battle. Franklin and Hamilton, Morris and Sherman, Han dolph and Madison, I'inckney und Hut ledge, were lit associates for Washington in the great work of formulating the const it u tion the great laws of laws for a free people. Inix'rishalile forever le the fame of the men who. iii.-pin-d by a wisdom more than human, laid broad and deep the f omnia lions oi our inn institutions a govern ment by the people, and having for its bed rock the Intelligence, the virtue and tho patriotism of tho pople. Listen to tho pre amble of its matchless instrument: "Wo, the itooplc of the United States, in order to form a more jterfirt union, estab lish justice, insure domestic tranquillity, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and svuro tho bless ings of liberty to ourselves and our Ktster ity, do obtain and establish this constitu tion for the United States of America." What a commentary upon the handiwork of Washington and his compeers that not withstandingour population has been aug mentitl more than twenty fold, the western border of t lit republic transferred from tho Alleghauies to the Pacific, vet over 100 years have witnessed our organic law as it came from the hands of its framersl What a commentary upon the wisdom of tho sages who founded this government in tho fact that so many of tho Central and South American republics have modeled their governments after that of tho United States! The representatives of these for eign governments have borne earnest tes timony to the value of our federate consti tution and to tho pros)orlty and happiness it has brought to millions of freemen be yond our domain. Adlai Stevenson. FOURTH OF JULY ORATORY. A Type of 8ueaker Common In Our Glo rloon Country. Very common indeed Is the loud voiced, self confident orator who is generally put on lis the sjnxial attraction of tho occa sion, lie is a "drawing card," and he knows it. He has been sent for from a Mistance. his eijienses have leen paid, and quite possibly also the executive commit tee made it to Ids interest to come. Ho comes on the grounds in a carriage, escort ed by the mcmlx-rn of the committee and preceded by the liand, which, in order to do honor to his arrival, performs with a jsiwer compared to which its previous and subsequent exploits during the dav are more trilles. He is conscious that all eyes are ujHjn him; he notes with satisfaction from his central seat on the platform that as tho hour for his address approaches the people on the grounds gather up to tho grand stand in anticipation; that those who are close get closer, and those who are farthest awav hurry lest thev le too late. He is used to being admired and sees with satisfaction, while pretending to no tice nothing, the lingers jolhtod at him nnd hears the whisitcred exclamations con cerning himself. Hut he is thoroughly nt ls case, and from his first ltellow, "Fel--o-o-o-w citizens!' to the thunderous con clusion, In which he carries the crowd by storm, lie is thoroughly at home-with him self nnd with his spo"ch. He ought to e. Ho has a higher opinion of the former than of any other living man, and he lias repeat -d tho latter so often that to him it has become as easy as an old shoe. St Louis (ilolM'-lK iiKs rat. INDEPENDENCE DAY IN 1793. CeWbratlon of the Fourth In Itooton In Our Forefathers' Time. In the morning, to tho discharge of ar tillery, the ringing of bells and the dK'ora- tion of the siiinniiu; and manv Darts of tho town with the ensigns of tho Union, succeeded a poetical and musical exhibl tion at tint Universal meeting house. At 12 o'clock an oration was pronounced at tho request of the town by John Quincy Adams at tho Old South meeting house, which for purity of stylo and rectitude of principle has been pronounced by the pub lic equal if not superior to the best exercise of his oratorical predecessors. To add splendor to tho day tho Boston artillery, the Independent Fusiliers and Captain Johnson's company of militia made their public appearance, and by their citizen soldierly conduct, correct discipline and fraternal harmony fully accomplished tho object of their parade. Alter the duties of tho day were per formed Captain Bradleo's artillery repaired tothoCiroen Dragon, where they partook of a liU ral entertainment and concluded their festivity with the following toasts Tho glorious anniversary. May tho birthday of Ainericun independence aoon become tho common jubilee of mankind. Tho intrepid band of patriots who sealed tho Declaration of Independence. May their names bo venerated until gratitudo und fame tthull xnolder in the sepuleher of creation. Hancock, tho illustrious president of con gress on that auspicious day. Tho town of Boston, the cradle of the Revo lution. May Americans never wunt wisdom to pre servo and prudence to enjoy what valor has procured and union established. ThediiYusion of letters throughout the world Learning is tho daughter of liberty. May every nation cm the globe boast, like America, a Washington who has the shield of Fabius, tho sword of Ma reeling and the helmet of Seipio. Tho orator and tho poet of the day. May the trophies of eloquence ever decorate the altars of freedom. Tho reformers of mankind. May they who have rent tho veil cf ages exterminate the monsters who won it. The (lallo-Columbian fraternity of freemen. May tho union of Franco and America bo us durable as tho ocean which divides them. May the helm of government ever preserve an intermediate course between the shoals of slavery and the rocks of licentiousness, the Scylla and Charybdis of tho political channel. Tim American fair. May tho bravest veteran never blush to wear tluir chains. May tho Hercules of liberty, who while an infant in this country strangled tho serpents of Britain, destroy in Europe the hydra of fac tion and e'ennse the Augean stable of men archy. Heaven forbid that the name of Washington, like that of Ciesar, should ever bo assumed by any future American magistrate to consecrate villainy or deify idiocy. The nineteenth century. May it commence with tho millennium of universal liberty. It may bo said that each toast as it was given was emphasized with three cheers and the discharge of seven guns, with tho exception of the twelfth toast. Here the gallantry of Captain Uradloo's brave artll-! lerymen lxrame unbounded, and in honor of tho "fair they doubled up with six cheers and 1 5 guns. When these modest but patriotic festivi ties wore nt an end. the celebration of tin fourth of July, 1 !:', by the town of Hus ton was brought to at lose. Hoston Her ald. Five MONEY FOR EUROPE. Mllllous Taken From Chicairo hv Sightseer. Chicago travelers have never before car ried so much money to Europe as they are taking this year. Tho round figure of $5, 000,000 is tho estimate made by tho mana gers of the foreign departments of various Chicago banks as about the total of letters of credit and drafts for tho use of travelers which will be Issued this year by the iMinksof this city. European travel was exccdingly heavy last year. It was ar gued then that business was so dull people of means took the opportunity of spending vacations in Europe because the question of time to them was much more important than the question of means. That expla nation does not seem to apply this year, for, In spite of the fact that all lines of busi ness are far more nctivo than I hey were a year ago, the vol u mo of European travel will this summer excee! that of last, if the Chicago business in travelers' letters of credit be the criterion, by 0 per cent. The average letter of credit is taken for from iX'uO to Jt.'lOO. There are a gosl many travelers who start away with a let ter of credit for not more than 100, but the average is brought up sharply by oth ers who will take letters of credit author izing them to draw as much as 5,000. The "European habit" is growing on the people of the west, local bankers say. The local business in travelers' lettors of credit so far this year is running alwut "0 per cent ahead of last year. At one of the principal banks where letters of credit are issued It was said recently that tho to uil Issue so far this month was considera bly more than it was for the entire month of June, lM'.U. There is one bank in the city that issues over 2,000,000 of letters of credit annually. Tho amount of the letters of credit din's not of course repre sent tho total expenditures of tho tourists Steamship tickets are usually paid for on this side for the round trio, and fremicnt- ly the railroad tickets or tho entire Euro pean journey are bought and paid for here. Then the travelers always start with some ready cash in the coins current In the country where they expect to land. There Is a demand In Chicago for probably f 100.- 000 of English, French and fierman mon ey each year to serve tin- travelers from the time they land until they draw their first drafts.

(2) The Chlnene Km ploy Thrm to Drive Away Kvil Spirits. Although comparatively new to our civ ilization, for naturally, as we now under stand the term, fireworks were diardly known until gunpowder came into use, mo niiiese nave, irom very remote pe riods, been in tho habit of making them for their various festivals. And although today with us fireworks are merely a diver sion nnd a means of amusing an idle hour or two their use in that oriental country was eariy a religious one, ami, in fact, lire- crackers even tnlay play a not inconsider able part In the celebration of at least one of the chief holidays in their calendar. This occurs on tho twenty-fourth day of the twelfth month, which is known ns Hal," and in the calendar the dav Is known as that on which "the spirits are soon out. The origin of this day, Intimately asso elated with firecrackers, is curious, for the people believe that every house Is inhabit ed by kind spirits which preside over tho happiness of tho family and are antago nized by evil spirits which equally strlvo to work their will uiton the inhabitants of tho house. Noise and fire are evidently tho two most objectionable things to these spirits, for It is by the aid of these that the inhabitants strivo to drive them from tho house. Gongs, cymbals, drums are beaten with vehemence. Fires and candles aro lighted to ware tho spirits away, while firecrack ers, which unite lndh desiderata, are let- off in a profusion which would delight the soul or every juvenile citizen nn tho Fourth, for tho houses are literally festoon ed with crackers, which keep up an in cessant banging. So serious, however, Is this observance that only the grownup inemljcrs of the family take part in this exorcising of the demons, the children be ing cxclm'od from any participation in it. as they aro excluded from all religious ccr emonies. The idea of noise In frightening awav these demons is naturally derived from a purely human notion, for primitive man was doubtless scared by the emission of some loud and uucicctcd sound of an un musical nature, and applying the result of hisobservnt Ion on himself to the treatment of his enemy he observed the same phe nomenon, and consequently reasoned that all his enemies would le similarly affected by similar proci -dings. Thus noise came to ixj lived as a me.ais of frightening av..y tho spirits of eil which dwell In the households. Washington Post. Ilflp From the Mint.
