It was a Well studied address and showed a wide research j he referred to the cravings for lib i erty which burned in the breast of the Early Man and followed the March of the Ages in the quest of Liberty an happiness. He touched upon the Dif a a cities Man had Ever met with in1 this Long Pursuit and said that self a ish Pursuit of ambition has always resulted in disaster and that history was full of instances where the Pas \ Sion for Liberty had driven the people to madness.

He followed j the growth and touched upon the j spirit of commercialism which had drowned the sensibilities of the peo a pie and threatens to engulf the Liber it ties for which their forefathers fought so valiantly. He contrasted the present with the past with. Feelings of alarm for the present but i he had Hopes for the future. He Cit a Jed the uprising in behalf of Cuba where the country was willing Toj pour out of its treasure and shed its blood for the liberties of that Down trodden Island and saw there a Hope i that the spirit of commercialism which sedated everywhere rampant would not entirely submerge the people.
