71. lappuse - Gentiles sunt, qui inter se eodem nomine sunt. Non est satis. Qui ab ingenuis oriundi sunt. Ne id quidem satis est. Quorum majorum nemo servitutem servivit. Abest etiam nunc. Qui capite non sunt deminuti.
35. lappuse - ... we'd rather starve idle, than working." The labor monopoly of the United Mine Workers of America alone stands between the conditions of 1920 and those of 1896. To the extent that the monopoly is increased the miners' position is made more secure. CHAPTER VIII EARLY HISTORY OF UNIONS OF COAL MINERS WE have now reached the point at which it is necessary to consider the relative merits of complete organization of the coal miners in America and the disadvantages of a further extension of the union....
177. lappuse - I could not visit it, but 1 have collected accurate information about it. There the Aequians and Volscians always appeared and united their armies. The same district is the scene of the poetical story of Cincinnatus' victories over the Volscians.
53. lappuse - ... conducted it into the Tiber, and thus changed the lake into solid ground; but as the Tiber itself had a marshy bank a large wall was built as an embankment, the greater part of which still exists. This structure, equalling the pyramids in extent and massiveness, far surpasses them in the difficulty of its execution. It is so gigantic, that the more one examines it the more inconceivable it becomes how even a large and powerful state could have executed it. In comparison with it, the aqueducts...
245. lappuse - ... and then the engines were brought up; at first batteringrams, but in later times catapulta and ballistae, for these engines, which were not yet known at Rome, were invented at Syracuse for Dionysius. The besieged endeavoured to destroy the works of the besiegers by undermining them. But the neighbouring tribes defeated the Romans and destroyed their works; and from that moment several years passed away without the Romans again pitching their camp at Veii. The war of Veii presented to the ancients...
52. lappuse - But after him a state of things is described by the historians, of which traces are still visible. Even at the present day there stands unchanged the great sewer, the cloaca maxima, the object of which, it may be observed, was not merely to carry away the refuse of the city, but chiefly to drain the large lake, which was formed by the Tiber between the Capitoline, Aventine and Palatine, then extended between the Palatine and Capitoline, and reached as a swamp as far as the district between the Quirinal...
vii. lappuse - Constantine, p. xii. calculated to attract ordinary readers. They, therefore, may be used as an introduction to, or as a running commentary on, Niebuhr's great work. I also agree with the German editor in thinking that, it does not seem right to suppress any part of the Lectures on Roman History, one of the objects of their publication being, to give as vivid a picture as posssible of the extraordinary personal and intellectual character of Niebuhr; an object which can be attained only by the complete...
41. lappuse - Up to this point we have had nothing except poetry, but with Tullus Hostilius a kind of history begins, that is, events are related which must be taken in general as historical, though in the light in which they are presented to us they are not historical Thus, for example, the destruction of Alba is historical, and so in all probability is the reception of the Albans at Rome. The conquests of Ancus Martius are quite credible ; and they appear like an oasis of real history in the midst of fables.
190. lappuse - ... demands were to be complied with or not. As the senate did not come to a decision, he waited three days longer — a term which a state or general demanding reparation takes to consider whether he shall declare war, or in what manner he is to treat the proposals that may have been made to him. Coriolanus was undoubtedly joined by the partizans of Tarquinius, by many who had been sent into exile in consequence of crimes, and lastly by Volscians. The republic invited him to return ; the entreaties...
409. lappuse - ... vol. iii. n. 668. In his Lectures, he says : ' The period from the third Samnite war down to the time when Pyrrhus was called into Italy, though it embraces scarcely ten years, is one of the most important in all ancient history (?), whence it is to be greatly regretted that we have no accurate knowledge of it. In the sixteenth century, people are said to have conjured up spirits for the purpose of recovering the lost works of ancient authors ; if such a thing were possible, or if by any sacrifice...
