Wednesday, Febraary 2, : : 1S97,
THE STATE AS A GUARDIAN.
With the genearl tendency of too
much ligislation is the tendency of
too much effort on the part of legislators
to regulate everythitv. This
has bee.i a great evil in national affairs.
This tendency to regulate the
citizen has led to the elast'c powers of
Congress to attempt the management
of what should be left to the States
themselves. Congress for a r.umber
of years discussed the regulation of
State elections. It ha> attempted to
regulate the natural laws of trade by
h;gn protective duties. xne instances
of natio lai legislation looking towards
doing somethingfor (he cit'z5n that he i
ought to do for hiouelf are so numerous
that many instance-; will leadily
suggest themselves. The aiding of
the PaciSs railroads is a spacies of
legislation of this class. To th:s class
of legislation, it can hardly be doubted
the paternal theories of the Populists
owe of their origin, such as Government
ownership of railroads, telegraph
companies, "the sub-treasury
plan," and similar schemes. Th&
general tendency of legislation has
been towards the theory that the
Government is a sort of guardian of
t.jc individual citizen^ and must control
hi n, protect Mm, and direct his
pii^ate business jast as a personal
gu-.'d; u would do. This idea and
concer-lon of the functions of Government
has so grown among the people
that now species of legislation are
s;rijrtaly advocated that in the early
histor- of the Republic would have
been jvgarJied "s wholly repagnant
to onr institutions. This conception
0/ :'ue duties anil powers of Government:
il:e natural outgrowth of the
doctrines of the Republican party.
Itegini'Iiig wi;h the na!ional"(jtevernmoiit,
it Las^ gradually spread into
It is significant too
(hat it first r^ade its appearance in
cot.ipara':re'v new State?, such as
!N'o?t?* Dakota, South Dakota, Xebra^
i. K-..usas &c. These and other
itaie-- brought into the Union during
!he ritin;: t i.sis new school of constitutional
powers of Congress are
the uiost radical in their demands as
to whit the Government should do
for the individual citizen.
.Now South Carolina, we fear, is
abvUt ;o follow this new school. A
bill to regulate the number of hours
a factory hand shall work is a product
of the genera! tendency the times.
The good old soard Democratic princi:
e is that the State ought !o do
r.ot'niug 1 or a citizsn that he can do
for himself. If a factory hard works
himseif too bard, he can certainly
work less, if he so desires. Why
should legislation seek to control his
work any more than that of any other
laborer What would be thought of
it, if a law should be passed that a
merchant should keep his store open
only for so many hours a day; that
his clerks should not work more tban
so many hours a day; that a bookkeeper
must close up his books at a
certain time ol night,end stop work;
ihat a lawyer should not work bat a
certain number of hours a day? What
would our people think of it, if a law
\va> parsed that r.o farm laborer should
v.'wk ever seven or eight hours a day?
They would say ail of such legislation
was v,-10112:, and that it was a matter
with which the; Government had
nothing to do.
II this kind of legislation is continued,
we shall not be surprised if a
biil is passed some day defining exactly
what hour a citizen shall eat, what he
si ali ca\ when he must go to bed,
when he must ^et up, what he must j
wear, arui in short the State will j
re.ul -v everything.
;:mutidment to the bill requiring
tr .:s 10 stop at all stations is a
wise compromise. Under the amendKi
.w thro ig'. vestibules are not required

people wi 1 not be c..-ne:!t< d with him
Perhaps, after all it would be best for ;
hitu to take the Prerideu's chair with 1
just a? little ceremony ss possible.
LET ITS GIVE HIM DUE CREDIT.
We constantly hear of ;e>;ile abusing
President Clevelat.d, and saying
that he has done no good. This is
wrong. lie has done a great deal of
good during his second administration.
While there are a great many things
that we wish he had done, still in
j critising him, we ought n?t to ore:'I
look the good Lis administration has
i accomplished. The principles of his
j administration are more correct than
it:o.?e acivocaiea uy .mciuux-;. iwu u??> j
follow . His administration has
been characterized by cconomy, and
Democia:?, although opposed to him. I
ought not to lose sight of this fact. |
A comparison of the expenditures!
under the Harrison administration and
j the Cleveland administration is in'e!
resting. Take the second admini^lia[ ionofMr.
C eland. For the lineal
I year of LS93-JL ending 30th June, Mr.
Cleveland reduced the expenditures
from the previous year by $15,952,674.6G;
lor 1S94-5, $11,829,931.54:
1895 6, $4,015,S52.21. It, thus appears
1 that under Mr. Cleveland, the expenditures
have been reduced every
year from the previous jear. This
i-irtt hn fnromttpn hv those Who
14Vb VV *v<?v.vv.- J
say that the present Democratic administration
hss done nothing for ibe
people. Again Mr- Cleveland ha?
taught the people, as 110 other man
has done, the falsity of the Republican
doctrine of protection, lie has
impressed on the country that tariff
| taxation, legitimately cx-nciscd. has
| for its object the raising of revenue
for public pnrposcs, and that protection
is a mere incident of such taxation.
While the Wil-on tariff is not |
satisfactory to the country, and was
I not to Mr. Cleveland himself, yet itj
has done a great d'~al of practical I
good. When did you ever know the
time that you could buy a suit of
clothes so cheap? Did you ever know
blankets, and all of the necessaries of
life, so cheap? Take some of the bills
you made under the Ilarri-.on administration
and compare them with
bills made under the adminisnation of
Cleveland. The comparison will be
instructive, we are sure.
We mention these facts, i.ot so
much for tbe purpose of defending
Mr. Cleveland, but merely for the
purpose of showing that too of:en j
when we begin to criticise too freely j

The first issue of "The Religions i
Outlook," edited by Drs. McPheeters j
and Brimm, of the Columbia Theo-J
logical Seminary, is just out. The J
typographical feature is most excellent.
The first i^sue promises well.
Tip. articles are able and broad. TLe
list of contributors is a ^uaraiitee that
the excellency of the first number
will be sustained. Although ''"The

in the interest of the Presbyterian
Church, the pditors hope to s;cure
the services of distinguished
writers and scholars cui side the Presbyterian

that we are not clear as to the
good faith of this bill. Mr. Pa'ion
called attention to the fact that this
fund was pledged as security fur the
payment of State bonds, and he thinks
that it would be a breach of good
faith wi:h the bondholders lojend this
money. The money i? now loaned
upon Sta'e bonds as security. Mr.
Patton thinks that the Act authorizing
this ought not to have been passed.
The counties now borrow money at
seven and eight per cent, and frequently
the money is borrowed from
the very people whoobiain a loan from
