Ilevere's own story of hi rid? j?r
fcar.G best explains the events that
occurred that night. He fays:
"On Tuesday evening a number of
roldiera were observed marching to
ward the bottom of the Common.
About 10 o'clock Dr. NVarrea sent In

I would immediately sat out for Lex
ington, where Hancock and Adams
were, and acquaint them of the move

were the objects. When I cot to Dr.
Warren's houie, I found that he had

Hancock and Adarnn, who were at

with a Colonel Conant and sorie
other gentlemen tliat if the Hritish

two lanthorns in the North Church
steeple, and if by land one as a sig
nal; for we werr apprehensive it
would be diincult to cross the Charles
River or to get over Ilostun Neck.
I left Dr. Warren, called upon a
friend and desired him to make the

and surtout, went to thvi north part
of the town, where I kept a boat.
Two friends rowed me across Charles
River, a little to the east of where
the Somerset man-of-war lay. It was
then young flood, the ship was wind
ing and the moon was rising. They
landed me on the Charlestown tide.
When I got into town I met Colonel
Conant and several others. They
said they had seen our signals. I
told them what was acting, and we
went to get a horse of Deacon
With the horse speeding him along,
Paul Revere soon reached Lexing
ton, where he aroused Hancock and
Adams. On his way to Concord, he
was captured by four British officers.
While their prisoner, a volley fired
by Colonial militiamen frightened
them, and they abandoned their cap
tive, after taking his horse. Revere
then footed it to Woburn, back to
Lexington and on to Concord, where
he saw the memorable conflict.

ters of the Ai.ieri "iin Revolution.
The Declaration of Independence
has been in all subsequent history
designated as "a document immor
tal," and th story of the Etrugglfs
for American Independence comprise
the most thrilling incidents related
to the revolutionary movement to
plant freedom in the New World.
History gives honorable place to the
utterances of the heroes whose names
are linked with the achievements of
the Continental Congress. We quote:
WORDS OF THOMAS JEFFERSON:
"The God wko gave us life gave ua
liberty at the same time."
"We hold these truths to be self-
evident, that all men are created
equal; that they are endowed by their
Creator with certain unalienable
rights; that among these are life,
liberty and the pursuit of happiness."
;"Ve mutually pledge to each other
our lives, our fortunes and our sa
"When in (he course of human
events it becomes necessary for one
people to dissolve the political bonds
which have connected them with an
other, and to assume among the pow
ers of the earth the separate and
equal station to which the laws of
nature and of nature's God entitle
them, a decent respect to the opinion
of mankind requires that they should
declare the causes that Impel them to
tion of Independence.

gwo 1 u 1 1 c n ary
paSESSIBSnT was on April 19,
Kl0on 17T5- that the Patri"
in O yr ru otic citizens of Con-
rii o e ui
towns once a
fought the first fight
and burned the first
powder in the strug
gle for liberty and
freedom ' from tyr
anny. In those two
year those stirring
events are celebrated with all the en
thusiasm accorded to the celebration
of the King's Birthday by the Brit
ons, the bitter foes of theee same
towns 132 years ago.
But April 18, or the night of the
ISth, is just as much included in
this annual observance as Patriots'
Day itself. "Lantern Night" it is
called, from the fact that on the
night of April 18, 1775, a lantern was
hung in the belfry of theNorth Church
to warn the country around that Brit
ish soldiers were on their way. At
that time, although the country
about Boston and Charlestown was
thickly settled, there were no tall
buildings, smokestacks and grain
elevators intervening to hide the light
from view, and the lantern served
its purpose well.
In these days the feeble rays of a
lantern ia the old North Church
could hardly be distinguished from
the neighboring housetops.
But "Lantern Night" has more
lierht to commend it to history. At
midnight on the 18th of April, 1775,
Paul Revere, the daring patriot, made
his famous ride on horseback to
arouse the sleeping farmers and
townspeople with the warning that
the British soldiers were on the way
to seize the powder and stores hidden
away in Concord.
However much the facts and de
tails of this ride may be disputed
and there have arisen a legion of
critics and carping historians who
deny the authenticity of much of the
story the youth of tho land will be
more than willing to accept it as
given to the world in the lines of
Longfellow, which thrill and stir
every one who reads them.
But since denials have arisen, it
may be well to state the facts as
plain, unvarnished history gives
them. As a matter of fact, while it
is popularly believed that the lantern
was hung in the belfry of the North
Church to signal the direction taken
by the British to Paul Revere, who
vcaa -o.-nittne' across the river for the
signal, Paul Revere had no need of cided to have the whole program of
such a signal. He had accurate in- that night gone over again, midnight
formation retrardine the route to be ride and all. A rider was found who
traversed by the British. The lan- consented to make the trip, and he
tern was placed there to warn others, started out as though the British
that they might spread the alarm were really at his heel. He fell off
also, especially if Revere was taken his horse in Medford Square, how
prisoner, ever, and when he picked himself lip

than the mere hanging of a warning lasting service to his country when

No man ever did, no man ever will
renounce a nomination that mean?
election to the greatest oilice in the
world. The President will simply be
forced to run a second time, because
From the Declara-1 seems as certain as fate he will be
chosen by acclamation in the Republi
can convention. The convention will
not wait to get any word from him
as to his own desires in the matter.
It will nominate him and adjourn,
nd the people will do the rest."
This is the concensus of opinion
that one hears here every day at tlie
hotels from prominent men, from one
end of the country.
North Carolina Declared For Rooso
velt Again Over Two Years Ago.
A year ago last summer former
Senator Butler of North Carolina
gave an interview to the Washington
papers in which he pointed out why
the American people would demand
that the President should serve a
second term and how the President
could and woidd be induced to yield.
Now that view has become general.
"Bowing to Public Opinion."
The Washington Evening Star has
a very timely and thoughtful article
under, the above heading. The fol
lowing: extract is most interesting:
"Two interesting- dispatches bear
ing upon the general railroad sittia
tion in this country are printed in the
news columns today. One is in tae
form of an interview with M. E. In-
galls, president of the "Bijr Four"
road, in which he says that the rail
road men of the United States no
longer regard the President as a
bogey and have passed the stage of
keen apprehension lest the chief exe
cutive may adopt a redical policy of
expropriation. They are now able,
he declares, to apply the personal
equation to his uterances and to see
railroads only in matters in which E.
II. Harriman is concerned. The most
important sentence in the interview
was decided which ever was debated
in America, and a greater perhaps
never was, nor win De, aeciaea
among men. A resolution was passed
without one dissenting colony, that
these United Colonies are, and of
right ought to be, free and independ
ent States." From a Letter to His
ami lorth by ojerators who nave
made millions out of the transaction.
The " harrimauizing" process, now
fairly well understood by the jn-ople.
have been accepted as proof jMisitive
that the old freight and passenger
rates were exorbitant.
In view of all these devices ir.d
maneuvers there is no fear that ti;
redaction of passenger rates by ilire't
legislation or of freight rate by
commission rulings will drive any of
the corjMiratious into the hands of r"
ceivers in sjite of their enorino'.,
Secretary Wilscn Smiles.

the coldest June ever seen in Wash
ington there has now come the hot

has been looking gloomy during the

The Patronage Boss in Town.
One of the men whose conception
of the highest duty a Republican
State chairman is to "Iioss" at the
Federal "pie counter" was in town
a few days ago. The name of this
seeial one is Alams and he regi.d
ered from North Carolina. Rut he i?
not a very happy Adams these days.
There are several things that keep
him awake at nights, and besides be
may be worrying about things that
have not become generally known.
One of the things which is known
to everybody, that is worrying Adams
is that the Republican party is xl
ready too large for a little "boss."
He can not always without too much
protest appoint the class of men to
office who will swear persona! alleg
iance to Lim, and without this be can
not build up and maintain a personal
machine. It is plain why he wants to
read men out of the party. It if al
ready too big for him.
