The Example of Brazil.
A disposition is being shown by the
republicans of Europe to strengthen
the movement for the establishment of
a republic in Brazil which so far ap-
pears to have progressed without any
of the disturbances that usually at-
tend such revolutions. The French are
strong in their sympathy, a motion
having been made in the Chamber of
Deputies for an immediate recognition
of the Brazilian} republic. Anjiappre-
hension seems to prevail among Euro.
pean republican radicals that a mon-
archical reaction may be attempted in
Brazil which would have the encour-
agement, if not the open assistance, of
European monarchical governments,
and hence the necessity for prompt re-
cognition of the new republic by gov-
ernments in Hurope of the popular
type, such as France and Switzerland.
The latter has already instructed its
representative in Brazil to acknowl
edge the provisional republican gov.
ernment as the legitimate successor of
the empire. :
But it is rather to be believed that
instead of European monarchical in-
fluence being able to bring about a
reaction favorable to a restoration of
the empire, the example of the Bra-
zilian republicans is more likely to
inspire a movement against monarchy
in some of the European countries.
There has always been a close sympa-
thy between Portugal and Brazil, both
on account of race connection and old
political association. For years dis-
satisfaction with their government has
prevailed among the Portuguese, and
the same may he said of the Span-
iards upon whom the political ideas
and inspiration of CASTELLAR have tak-
en a strong hold. Both countries of
of the Spanish peninsula are in a con-
dition to be affected by the Brazilian
movement as by a magnetic influence,
and they would be encouraged by the
fact that the Republic of France,
whose stability may now be consider-
ed as assured and whose power is guar-
anieed by one of the strongest armies
in the world, would stand between
them and the interference of European
monarchies. No one would need be
surprised if as a sequence of the Bra-
zilian revolution republican govern-
ments should soon be seen extending
from the Seine to the Tagus.
A Jacksonian Renaissance.
The proposed establishment of a Na-
tional Jackson Club,for the rehabilita-
and principles in political practices
and governmental methods, is a pro-
ject which should have the encourage-
ment and assistance of all citizens who
want to see our government maintain-
ed in the form and spirit in which it
was established by the founders of the
Pessimism may say that it is too
late to do this—that the whole fabric
is so impaired by the corruption of
those in public life, and that even the
popular sentiment is so demoralized
by the bad example of political lead-
ers and by the general substitution of
personal interest for the public welfare,
that it is impossible to restore the pris-
tine tone of our institutions. =o
There is much to fortity the position
of those who take this discouraging
view. It makes itself apparent in
the extent to which money enters our
political contests and the ease with
which it can carry our elections. It
crops out in the subserviency of our
legislatures to the money power and
the corporations, and in the indiffer-
ence with which the people send men
to the legislatures whose sole purpose
in going there is to be corrupted. It
is seen in its worse phase in the al-
most dead certainty with which mil-
lionaires can have themselves sent to
the United States Senate by any State
legislature upon which they may exert
the persuasive influence of their money
The worse feature of this situation is
that the demoralization is im-
plied by it does not make an appreci:
able impression upon the moral senti-
ment of the public. Uuder these cir-
cumstances the pessimist does not pa-
rade his despondent prophecies without
reason, Yet it will not do to despair,
and the National Jackson Club which
has been organized may serve a good
purpose in arousing a paralysed public
sentiment and setting political affairs on
the road to a reformation.
We are pleased to see that our friend
tion and extension of Jacksonian ideas .
Col. A. K. McCrure has been put at
the head of this Jacksonian movement,
he having been elected President of the
Club. Among the prominent mem-
bers of the organization we see the
name of Mr. ANDREW CARNEGIE, which
must be a mistake. 1t isn’t possible
low citizens in order that he may
question Colonel McCLure's Jackson-
ian principles, but as a Jackson man
CARNEGiB is a frand.
Going Behind the Returns.
The Democrats in the Montana Leg-
islature very properly show a deter-
mination to block the scheme of the
Republicans to steal the control of the
Legislature, and thereby two United
States Senators, by the Silver Bow ras-
cality. On Saturday, at the time of
organization, the Democratic Senators
absented themselves and thus prevented
the Senate from being organized. The
Democratic members of the Lower
House organized a body separate from
the Republicans. This movement,
irregular as it may be, is justifiable as
an effort to forestall the greater irregu-
larity which has been attempted to be
practiced with the object of dishonest-
ly forcing two Republicans as the
Montana representatives into the
United States Senate.
The result of this will be that each
party will elect a set of United States
Senators. Mr. Russenn Harrison,
Just in from the scene of the difficulty,
thinks that it can and will be very
easily settled. He is reported as say-
ing: :
The United States Senate, in’passing upon
the validity of the elections of two sets of sen-
ators, will, of course, underthe circumstances,
go behind the returns, and being convinced
that the Republicans at the recent election
elected a majority of the legislature, will geat
the senators the regular legislature will choose:
Of course the Republican Senate
will go behind the returns and will
have no difficulty in finding there any-
| thing that may be required to suit
| their purpose. But it should be re-
| membered that when the monumental
villainy of stealing the Presidency was
| perpetrated some twelve years ago, it
| was effected by the highest Repuclican
tribunal refusing to go behind the re-
turns. It was then declared, and es-
tablished as a precedent, that going be-
hind the returns was a very revolu-
tionary and improper proceeding.
A Striking Contrast.
We have frequently spoken of the
shabby treatment of the colored
voters by the party which has so long
enjoyed the advantage of their united
and undeviating support. Time and
again they have rescued that party
from defeat, and in HARRISON'S case it
may be said that he would have floun-
dered in the tureen of unutterable dis-
asterifthe colored voters hadu’tinter-
cepted his precipitation into the soup.
And yet he is giving them no recogni-
tion of their invaluable service while a
large portion of the white criminals of
Indiana are getting offices as a reward
for having helped to carry that state
for him. Speaking of this ungrateful
treatment, the Zimes- Union of Jack-
sonville, Florida, makes the following
comparison between the policy of the
Cleveland administration and that of
Harrison in the matter of giving of-
fices to colored men:
President Cleveland appointed more colored
men to office than President Harrison has
done, or will do. Of course, President Cleve-
land’s choice was limited toa narrow field,
since he would appoint no colored man who
was not a Democrat. Republican promises
and Democratic performances can be correctly
estimated only on the basis of the colored Re-
publican and the colored Democratic voters,
respectively. Of the 1,200,000 colored voters
in the United States, 1,188,000 are Republicans
and 12,000 Democrats. Now, for every fifty
colored men appointed by Cleveland, Harri-
son, to show an equal regard for the “man and
brother,” must appoint 5000 exactly. But not-
withstanding these restrictions Cleveland ap-
pointed even more than Harrison has appoint-
ed, and his offices are now all filled. More-
over, this estimate, by numbers alone, omits
any consideration of availability. Taking into
account the fact that nine-tenths of the North-
ern colored Republicans are educated, and a
rough caleulation would show that when it
comes to substantial favors Cleveland had one
thousand times more regard for a colored
man than the Republicans have. This is the
testimony of colored men themselves, and the
facts amp'y sustain the conclusion.
This is a fair comparison. It cor-
rectly presents the treatment which
that a man who is willing to impose |
oppressive tariff exactions on his fel- |
make a million a year, is an apostle of |
Old Hickory or a supporter of his prin- |
Nothing could induce us to |
| the colored men received from a Presi-
| dent who politically owed them noth-
ing, in contrast with that which they
| are receiving from one whom they posi-

tively put in the position he occupies.
A Leading Democratic Journal.
Of distinctively Democratic daily
journals in Pennsylvania the Pittsburg
| Post is clearly in the lead, gaining its
leadership not only by its long occu-
| pancy of the Democratic field, but also
| by its superior ability in enunciating
Democratic doctrines and its extended
influence resulting from its enlarged
circulation. The Post now stands
among the great journals of the coun-
try, the equal of any mn all the points
that go to make a great newspaper.
Its editorials are diguified and forceful,
discussing in excellent style the leading
issues of the day, but giving its best ef:
fort to the maintenance of Democratic
principles. Democracy hasn't any-
where an advocate whose teaching is
making a stronger or better impression
upon the publie mind. In the matter
of news the Post gives the latest dis-
patches and items of general intelh-
gence. Its comprehensivenessandrelia-
bility in this respect are not surpassed.
In the matter of commercial
telligence it is abreast of the most ad-
vanced journalism. But it is in its
political character that it stands pre-
eminent as being the leading daily ad-
vocate of Democratic principles in
that it deserves the liberal support of
the Democrats of the State.

—It is gratifying to learn from the
Philadelphia Record that a gentleman
80 deeply interested in manufacture
as Major I. S. Bent, President and
manager of the great Pennsylvania
Steel Company at Steelton, Pa., enter-
tains ideas in regard to raw materials
very similar to those expressed by Presi-
dent CLeverLAND. In an interview he
said that it would be a great advantage
to the steel interest if the manufactur-
ers should be able to get Bessimer ores
free of duty. It is positively neces-
sary to imort them. In the operation
of their enlarged works they will re-
quire a million tons of Mediterranean
and Cuban ores a year upon which
there will be an annual tariff tax of
$750,000. This is entirely unnecessary
for the public revenue which is already
redundant, and it does not protect any
home interest. But, as Major Bent
says, this unnecessary expense “must
either come off the wages of American
workingmen or off the profits of Ameri-
can manufacturers.” It is evident that
the Major has been attending Creve
LANDS tariff reform school.

A. O. Myers, of Cincinnati, who cre-

in the “Enquirer” office and denounc-

the Democratic party of his State, has
added to the sensation by announcing
his intention of sending one or more of
Ohio’s millionaires to the penitentiary.
There is a suspicion that the person or

A Leaf From History.
Philadelphia Record.
The story of Abraham Lincoln’s plan
to create a government fund of $400.-
000,000 to indemnify the slaveholders |
for negro emancipation, as told by
Messers. Hay and Nicolay in the Cen-
tury for November, has more than a
historical interest. In a letter to Alex-
ander H. Stephens soon after his election
to the Presidency, Mr. Lincoln asked :
“Do the people of the South really en-
tertain- fears that a Republican adminis-
tration would directly or indirectly in-
terfere with the slaves or their masters
about their slaves 7” Answering his own
question, he said : “If they do, I wish to
assure you as once a friend, and still, I
hope not an enemy, that there is no
cause forsuch fears.”
The conservative opinion thussincere-
ly and frankly expressed by Abraham
Lincoln was entertained by the, great
mass of the Republican party. Even
when civil war arose through the act |
of the slave-holders it was not waged to
free the negroes, but to preserve the
Union. The idea of emancipation;
though cherished by a small element of
the Republican party, was carefully
kept in the background lest it should:
prove a serious obstacle to a vigorous
prosecution of the war. Events, how-
ever, rapidly outran the deductions of
cool policy, and freedom to the slaves,
without eompensation to owners, became
a military as well as a political necessity
of the situation.
But now the latter-day Republicans
are making a claim of gratitude upon
the negroes for a political event which
was not in the programme of their pre-
decessors. The collision of arms precipi-
tated that. which Abraham Lincoln and
the great body of his supporters solemn-
ly protested they did not desire. In this
great Republican eity of Philadelphia
an omnibus would have held all
the Republicans whose views were
in advance of Abraham Lincon’s on
this subjeet. Yet the latter-day Repub-
licans practically demand that the. ne-
groes shall have no opinions on current
questions of policy, but are bound to
their party by ties of gratitude for an
event which oceurred more than a
quarter of a century ago. The negroes,
who are: emotional and grateful by
incessant dinning of this party claim in
their ears. Abraham Lincoln’s honest
such a pretension. The Confederates,
entitled to the gratitude of the blacks
for the uncontrollable events which
culminated in their emancipation as are
the Republicans, who made war with-
out seeking or-desiring emancipation.
Even if this claim to the gratitude of
colored voters be not founded upon a
historical misconception, itis none the less
pernicious and demoralizing in its effect
upon political development. Political
ingratitude is the independence of the
citizen. Party traditions, names and
associations, however venerable, weigh
nothing against the duty of the living
present. Those people whose eyes con-
ites and Bourbons of American politics.
‘When the negroes shall know better
is the party claim to their grateful suff-
How the Farmers are Organizing.
Mr. William A. Peffer, editor of the
Kansas Farmer, has made a study of
the extent to which the furmers are or-
ganized and other such bodies. He has
brought together the statistics of the
membership of each of these organiza-
tions, and has colletced facts bearing on
their methods and purposes, which show
that the agriculturists are in a much
more complete state of organization
than they have ever been before, for the
present associations far out-number the
membership of the old grange ; and their
growth shows a greater spontaneity and
clearer purpose than was shown by the
grange. Of the 4,500,000 farmers in the
United States, at least 1,000,000 are now
organized; and a movement is on foot
to consolidate all existing organizations
and extend them, whereby the organizers
expect in a brief period to include in
this conolidated association not less than
4,000,000 farmers.
Some of these associations have orig-
inated in the southwest, some in other
parts of the south and some in the west.
Their general purpose is so to express
the importance of the argricultural in-
terest as to cause other interests to pay
greater heed to the farmer. The com-
plaint of 211 these organizations is, in
substance, that the middlemen and the
money lenders have in one way or an-
other, great advantage over the fermer,
which advantage has been used to his
impoverishment. All these organiza-
ions are secret, and although in a purely
local sense none of them are political, in
a larger sense they all have a political
significance, in as much as they all look
forward to an opportunity for the far-
mers’ vote to change legislation which
they conceive to be particularly adverse
to the agricultural interests.
One of the most significant facts which
is shown indirectly by Mr. Peffer’s
study, is that there is a universal feeling
among farmers that our industrial or-
ganization somehow does them great
injustice. For the publication of his
full statement of these facts, Mr. Pefter
selected the Forum, and his article ap-
pears in the December number.
