THB STORY 07 A CENTURY'S XA
A Bit ef Political History That I Sap
dally Interesting Just Row,
Pastor That Have Flcursd
In President Making;.
The Philadelphia Times of last Sunday
tave up one of its pages to "a record of a
century of National contests," and from
that Is con-louse 1 what follows:
Nominating conventions were unknown
at the time of the organization of the lie
public, and at the first election of President
no candidate bad been presented by any
rty. It ws accepted by common consent
hat Washington should be President, and
as John Adams was pre-eminently the rep
resentative man of New England In the
struggle for independence, he was chosen
Vice President. Only 10 of the original
States participated In the first Presidential
election. Before the end of Washington's
first term Vermont ami Kentucky hail been
admitted into the Union, and the whole Ift
States voteil at bis second election. Wash
ington again received the unanimous vote,
b-ing I tj.and Adam received 77,which made
him Vice President for the second term.
In the middle, of Washington's second
term parties began to form, and at the be
ginning of 17l'l Jefferson resigned his place
as Secretary of State and took the leader
ship of the Republican party, In opposition
to the policy of the Administration, which
became known as Federalist. There was
then no direct vote for Vice President; esch
Elector voted for two men for President,
the one receiving the highest vote became
President and the next highest became Vice
President. In this way Jolr.i Adams,
Federalist, wss elected President, and
TIioiiihs Jefferson. Republican, was elected
Vice President. The alien and sedition laws
of the Adams administration further wid
ened the breach between Republicanism
In 1WM Adam and Jefferson were again
Jilted again each other, Charles C. Pinck
ney being th" running mate with Adams,
and Aaron Burr witn Jefferson. There w as
no election by the people and the contest
went Into the House, where, after a long
struggle, in which Burr tried to win the
Presidency, Jefferson was finally elected.
February 2ft, 18IH, the first formal nomi
nation to the Presidency was made by a
t otigresHioiiai caucus, and .lefterson was
lioiinnaU'd unanimously. It was a hopeless
battle agaln-t him from the start, and he
was re-elected by an overwhelming major
ity, receiving lti'2 electoral votes to 14 for
Iii lwiH the onlv rivalry was between the
two Virginians, Madison anil Monroe, and
Madison won the nomination on the first
ballot. The Federalists made no formal
nomination against him, but by general
consent presented their old ticket of Pinck
ney anil King. The campaign of 1808 did
not rise to the dignity of a contest, and Mad
ison Wf elected by 122 electoral votes to 47
for Pinckney. Tlie'election of 1812 occurred
during the War with England, and Madison
was rc-e!ectd without ditlicultv, the Feder
alist party having suffered by the hostility
of its leaders of the war.
With theeml of the war there was an end
of the Federalist party. March 111, 18111,
Monroe was nominated against Crawford.
The disappointment of the Crawford follow
ers led to an outburst against the Congres
sional caucus, and In Baltimore and several
other places public meetings were held pro
testing against the arbitrary power of Con
gressmen to select ciiiniidates for President,
but in the end the Republicans generally
united in the supsrt of Montoe, who le
ceived 182 of the 217 Electoral votes.
At the end of Monroe's term eumo the era
of pood feeling, and there was no npimeition
to his re-elect ion. He would have received
every electoral vote but for a New Hamp
shire elector, w ho said that honor should be
reserved for Washington only, and so cast
bis vote for John tjiilncy Adams.
But in 1824 opposition to the, Congress
sionul caucus svstem was renewed, with the
result that Crawford, Jackson, Clay and
Adams were candidates, and that the con
test was again thrown into the House. where
Adams was chosen by the aid of the Clay
men. Clay tjeing the lowest of the four can
didates was excluded from the House con
