A History-Making Party
One anniversary which very few
people remember and yet which is
most worthy of observation 'comes on
the 16th of this month. The Boston
Tea Party was held 150 years ago
from that date and it seems only fit- I
ting that attention should be calle1d
to it.
Never was there held a more his-
tory-making party. The dumping of
the tea into the harbor was not gen-
erally approved. Franklin and many
other liberal colonists of repute and at11Iilli IIIIIIlilllllIIIIH
influence expressed their disapproval
of the act and urged the city of Boston
to make amends to the owners for the
financial loss. The destruction of _ Also

way of expressing a worthy spirit.
Nevertheless the spirit behind the act
met with the approval of the rising
current of liberty throughout the col- arsity ongs
onies. Its results gave the colonists a
sense of brotherhood, and created a TheYellow and Blue
bond that held them together. ;
The Province of Massachusetts was
punished for dumping the tea. The -fhe Victo rs

meetings, those hotbeds of discussion and
and disobedience, were forbidden to
convene. Local self-government was Many Others

penalty was inflicted. Then it was - --
