Thla much by the way of preface.
This Attcb aa a basis for some particu

rather Ul a spirit of auggestiun and in
quiry. The Chronicle refern to the ed

tion with the issue which has ao din

which we both claim to be members.

Hut In either event It can amount to,
nothing unless It be expedient and at
tainable. If it bo inexpedient and un-1
attainable, if it cannot be reached and
applied, but If, on the contrary, it pro
cures its own defeat, and atonic with
its own defeat the defeat of other
treasures needful and just, which ex
cept for it would be possible will any
fair or wise man pretend that tt should
be net"'up as a.i altar tor men vocifer

argument as to the merit or demerit of
the question, has it been a help or a
hindrance to the democratic party, and

events verified or have they contrad.c

The Confederate Record.
All this, however, merely in passing.
Mr. Watterson's crowning offense now
is that he "has turned his back on his
confederate record of local self-govern
ment..” Alas, he and the rest cf his
companions who are giowing older
every day. and fewer, have had to turn
their backs upon a good many inci
dents that made up that same record;
our rights in the territories, for exam
ple, and the inalienable doctrine of se
cession and the divinity of ihe institu
tion of African slavery. it would be
hardly pr udent for any of us to be too
nice about “records," confederate or

Problems We Must Ficr.
It la easy lo ace. and still easier to

obligations hitherto unprovided for In

Not a bit of it. It means that it is
easier to govern one hundred millions
of people today than it was to govern

It means that repnblicanisna cannot

of the world's organism, and cannot
escape the world’s movement, and that
it must and will meet the duties and
prepare for the conflicts before it. But,

It is an alternative no less than an
opportunity that we have to deal with,
