PHILADELPHIA. July 4. President
Wilson advocated modernizing the
Declaration of Independence to meet
present conditions. In his address today
to a huge crowd assembled In Inde
pendence Square within a few feet of
where the original Declaration was
' signed. '
The President referred to the Mexi
. can situation, the tolls controversy and
. business conditions in the country. He
took a fling at the bankers who had
fought the currency bill before its
passage and praised it afterward. The
address was In general a plea for every-
day patriotism. The President said:
"Mr. Chairman and fellow-citizens:
We are assembled today to celebrate
the 138th anniversary of the United
1 Etates. I suppose we can more vividly
realize the circumstances of that birth,
, standing on this nistorio spot, than it
would be possible to realize It any
i "The Declaration of Independence
: was written in Philadelphia. It was
adopted in this historic building. I
have Just had the privilege of sitting
In the chair of the great man who pre
sided over those whose deliberations
resulted in its adoption. Here my hand
rests upon the table upon which the
1 Declaration was signed. We can al
most feel we are In the visible and
tangible presence of a great historic
Vital Bnalaesa Involved.
"But have you ever read the Declara
tion of Independence? When you have
heard it read, have you attended to its
sentences? The Declaration of Inde
pendence is not a Fourth of July ora-
tion. The Declaration of Independence
was a document preliminary to war.
It Involved a vital piece of business,
not a-piece-of rhetoric. And if you
will get further down In the reading
. than Its preliminary passages, where It
quotes about the rights of men, you
will see that it Is a very specific body
of declaration concerning the business
of the day, not the business of our day,
' for the matter with which it deals
, is past the business of revolution, the
business of 1776. The Declaration of
Independence does not mean anything
to us, merely in its general statements,
unless we can append to it a similarly
specific body of particulars as to what
we consider our liberty to consist of.
-What la There in It for VmV
"Liberty does not consist In mere
general declarations as to the rights
of man. It consists in the translation
of those declarations into definite
action. Therefore, standing here, where
the Declaration wu adopted, reading
Its business-like sentences, we ought to
ask ourselves what Is there in it for
US'! There is nothing In it for us,
unless we can translate it into terms
of our own condition and of our own
lives. We must reduce It to what the
lawyers call a bill of particulars. It
contains a bill of particulars the bill

WASHINGTON, July 4. (Special.)
Emion Garet, the sculptor, called at

Secretary of State Bryan! It was Garet

the Assistant Secretary.
"Well, first you seat the subject in

and by no means attempts to speak."
The Assistant Secretary entered me
sanctum of the Secretary. He was
gone several minutes. Sounds of ani

When he reappeared he shook his
