the disadvantages of excessive heat. Sol

“The police force which is adminis

started toward demoralization. The com

causing cynicism and loss of confidence
in both law and its enforcement and
therefore in its observance. The failure
of local government has a demoralizing
effect in every direction.
“There are vital issues, in which the
nation greatly needs a revival of inter

ancient and well-chartered course.
"Our country was conceived in the
theory of local self-government. It has
been dedicated by long practice to that
wise and beneticient policy. It is the
foundation principle of our system "of
liberty. It makes the largest promise
to the freedom and development of the
individual. Its preservation is worth
all the effort aud all the sacrifice that
it may cost.
“It can not be denied that the present
tendency is not in harmony with this
spirit. The individual, instead of work
ing out his own salvation and securing
his own freedom by establishing his own
economic and moral independence by his
own industry and his own self-madlery,
tends to throw himself on some vague
influence which he denominates society
and to hold that in some way responsible
for the sufficiency of his support and the
morality of his actions.
“The local political units likewise look
to the states, the states look to the na
tion, and nations are beginning to look
to some vague organization, some nebu
lous concourse of humanity, to pay their
bills and tell them what to do. This
is not local self-government. It is not
American. It is not the method which
has made this country what it is. We
can not maintain the western standard
of civilization on that theory. If it
is supported at all, it will have to be
supported on the principle of individual
responsibility. If that principle be main

He doesn’t fear death, so he says, al

smiles or laughs. He confesses to no

spare time is spent in physical training
“I know I face death constantly,” he ,
says, speaking slowly and apparently
