One year ago, it was read and amid great enthusiasm en dorsed as a part of the democratic national .platform. This document, the most remark able state paper ever penned, was written by Thomas Jefferson and to its maintainance ho and his co-patriots pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor. And yet, in a higher and broader sense it was not the work of human hands. It was rather a bow of prom ise which the sunlight of truth, shining through tears, cast upon the clouds. It as sured the world that the waters of despotism had reached their flood and were receding. God grant that they may never rise again! To prove this let facts bo submitted to...

W A Universal Charter. The lato Moses Ooifc Tyler wrote an essay on the Declaration of Independence, and that essay should bo read "by every" American citi zen. Mr. Tyler pointed out that what we call criticism is "not the only valid test of the gen uineness and worth of any piece of writing of great practical interest to mankind." He said that there is also "the test of actual use and service in the world, in direct contact with the common sense and the moral sense of large masses of men under various conditions and for a long period. No writing which iH not essentially sound and true has ever survived this test." "Made the Colonies all Alive." Mr. Tyler pointed out that from this test tho Declaration of Independence "need not shrink." "Probably no pub lic paper," said Mr...

Tnifl is an enor mous tax, out when it is remembered that these gold mining companies were largely respon sible for bringing about this unholy war, few will sympathize with them because of the great burden they are now required to bear.
