is tho key to his lailuro in the

that concludes that tho ago in which ho lives is an improve

The student of history knows there have been periods
in the history of several nations when justice was more
prevalent than in this age when the mass of tho people
enjoyed more comparative comfort, and happiness than
they do today.
"Vc know' there wore nations founded upon principles
of government that were destroved in the name of religion
by a race that replaced liberty and freedom with slavery,
degradation and the most heartrending oppression man is
capable of comprehending.
religion, we might well ask, as the world the gainer when
the civilization of the Indian was destroyed to make room
for the Spaniard, the Puritan and the Dutch trader1?
To be specific, Mr. Taft seems to believe that because
in the early history of the Germanic tribes the laws were
made by the people at their public meetings, called the
ufolk-moot," and that the "folk-moot" was abandoned for
destroyed); that its uselessness or lack of usefulness has
been established, and that in now adopting direct legisla
tion in this country we arc gathering up the politican flot
sam and jetsam of former ages.
The historv of the "folk-moot" shows that it was the
system of a free people, and as
m that manner the people so governed were free, and when
the "folk-moot" was abandoned the people from freedom
descended to serfdom and slavery. Under the "folk
moot" the people were all landholders, but after it was lost
the baronial estates replaced the oicupancy by the culti
vator, who became a feudal tenant.
The "folk-moot" was succeeded by government by the
inhabitants of the castles, who counted the cultivators of
the soil as they did their herds of swine. The priest was
established as a political factor to assist in keeping them
Then came the French revolution, the revolt growing
out of the oppression of centuries, and the maddened at
tempt to regain the natural rights of men that thoy had
been robbed of in the name of religion and government.
Ever since mankind has been struggling, blindly some
times to regain the natural God-given rights of self-government.
The contest today is in its final stage, with the
goal in sight. It is in the final stage today, because man
kind has not before within 500 veal's been prepared to
enjoy these rights as he is today.
The underlying cause of most of the world's injustice
in government can bo traced to lack of intellectual develop
ment of the mass of the people. "When the world's knowl
edge was preserved in clay tablets and parchment writings
when only the priests and their protectors could read and
write, then the mass of the people were either at the mercy
of the cruelty and selfishneess of tho few who desired to
rule, or the cunning and brutality of their own ignorant
In the contest between the masses and the classes, the
masses have always been handicapped by ignorance, for
knowledge was restricted to the fc'w. But the diffusion of
knowledge through the education of the people and by the
press is rapidly preparing the masses for the responsibil
ities of government. Tt is this intellectual progress that
Mr. Taft and those like him fail to consider and will not
see. The light of popular intelligence will soon dissolve all
the dark mysteries of politics and government and will
illumine the world with one great idea a government "of
the people, by the people and for the people."

Steeping and waking are thu trough
