PRESENT DAY THOUGHTS.1
1IY OROlVENOK DAWE. J
I (Copynrlghted by l)o it Tnbor.)
Wliun lust week tho suggestion vna
nmttu that wti this week touch upon
tho question of thu union of Urn Eng
lisli speakers in fuvor of peace, It Imtl
escaped my attention that this letter
would ho issued near to independence
It la peculiarly fortunate, that it
should, its It will give deeper meaning
to tho backward glance that wo must
take. Thu English speaking world has
moved in 122 yenn rind in no particu
lar moro than this that there is an ab
solute, unreserved contidonco in tho
integrity of tho common people. In
177G wo wore wearied of taxation with
out representation, wo chafed under
numberless restrictions placed upon
our development, wo wore bowildored
by tho varied and eoullU'ting characters
of tho thirteen original colonics, and
wo wero outraged in spirit at having
our lives and our liberties hold as a
light matter by obstinate and short
sighted George III. Hut wo were no,
one particle worso oil; than tho English
masses themselves. The volco of thu
pooplo there was about as loud as tho
volco of it bat, and their progress as
little heeded. Yet since that time, so
regular, so similar, so coherent has
hcun the development of human rights
under the genius of tho English speak
ers, that ono needs hardly to snj "True
of Kugljtad" or "Tvuo of Amurica" but
rather "True of Uoth."
Each decade has seen more and full
er attention given to thu strata of so
ciety previously despised. Tho oppor
tunities of education have been opened
utmost unreservedly. Tho volco of thu
plain man has been given broader
placu in tho councils of tho nation. A
tiemeudotiH udjustibllity has been dem
onstrated by moulding diverso peoplo
with diverse tongues into ono fooling of
national life. Enterprise commercial
inventivo, moral, mental has been
and is a constaut wonder to thoso na
tions that havo not moved so quickly.
And above all, as I havo already hint
ed, trust in tho pooplo is tho basis of it.
Thcso previous sentences rofcr to both
nations with equal truth.
What wo gained however by long
and exhausting war, England has
gained largely by poacoful revolution.

knowledge and belief, as per statement heiowlth submitted. C. D. ROBINSON, County TitF-ASUnKit.
Subscribed and sworn to beforo ino this 2d duy of July, lbOS. J, P. HALEi County Clkhk,
Also while our scheme of government
has remained practically unchanged,
England seems almost to have drifted
ahead of us in tho case with which the
pulse of the peoplo is felt. My moan
ing is tills; that thu English cabinet re
siirns whenever It loses Its majority in
tho house of commons, and as a general
election Immediately follows, tho feel
ing tit tho people moulds government
more quickly than where government
h elected for an uiircbukablo four
or six years.
Now, if wo will rocognlzo that begin
ning years beforo and culminating with
1780, franco had longings for libotty
which unfortunately vented Itself at
once in license wo shall bo able to un
derstand somewhat tho dilTcrcnco be
tween thu progress of tho English
speaker and tho progress of others.
Tho storm that swept away tho weak
Louis XVI ami tho oppressing nobles,
has never ceased to rumblo einco. Tho
Reign of Reason, tho comotio career of
Napoleon, ttio third Empire, thu Com
mune, Doulaugerlsm and what not;
havo followed ono another in bewilder
ing succession, and unwise would the
man bo who attempted to foretell tho
form of government in twonty yoars
lieneo. Even withli six months wo
havo seen that raoo hatred in tho
Dreyfus ease was allowed to extinguish
in judge and in public every sense of
justice, swenping asido with tho bowl
ings of maniacs and prophetic- warn
ings of Zola, tho bravo. Tho rulers of
Franco do not, because thoy dare not,
trust their imntiLlvo people. Franco
calls itself a republic, but after 122
Years is nothing but n bureaucracy,
under a system of espionage that
would bo unbearable to us overy la
borer being compelled to carry a sort
of record book of respectability, nnd
every individual being, in oiled, an
object of suspicion until provon to bo
innocent. Uurinany too, whilo wo
progressed politically, still distrusts
tho peoplo; even represses their politi
cal aspirations, and nllows tho army
ami force to rulo. Russia is still tho
massive problem of tho north, whoro in
a sense, tho people havo boon granted
freedom, but it isnotthofroodom that
frees in very truth. Italy oven tho
united Italy effected by Garibaldi and
othors is no land of popular trtiBt; olso
why tho bloody repressions at Milan a
fow weeks slnco. Austro-Hungary
with apparently represontatiro gov
ernment has reached no higher stage
than that where a little liberty increas
es distrust of each other, culminating
in the disgraceful parliamentary riots
in Buda Pesth last year. But England
after 123 yoars still calls itsolf a mon
archy, yet is to all intents and purpos
es a democracy.
Is thoro tho action of mere chanco in
this similar development of tho English
speaker on both sides of the Atlantic?
Not it is tho gonitis of tho peoplo that
makes them lovo fair play, honor law
and order, nnd work for tho right of
tho lower rail in tho political fenco.
Granting rights to that lower rail and
giving it a chanco to get up out of tho
mini of hopelessness ami nothingness,
is tho truo wisdom of tho race; because
responsibility ungoudors conservatism.
Possibly this brief roviow will lead us
to greater thankfulness regarding tho
bravo and wiso men of tho past than
more boasting about Iudopondouco
Day would do. Wo havo overy causo
for thankfulness that the stolid, some
what imaglnitivo, butexcocdingly con
scientious character of a British ances
try was so strong over us at thu outsoA
that tho spirit of tho country remains
tho same after absorbing millions of
other elements. Thoso mixed ones, no
longer held in repression at homo, ox
pand to our liberty and aro part of us
in overy sonse; but they havo left their
governmental distrust at homo.
Apology Js hardly necessary for not
having reached n discussion of tho next
gioal duty of tho English speaker,
These dotaik repardiug tho oneness of
our development was necessary, beforo
tho question of our union
could bo properly discussed.
