Restriction of Franchise
Threatens the Republic
I'nilcr the title "Tho Greatest Qucs-'
tlon Before This Republic," the New
York Sun publishes the following cdl
torlnl leader referring to a letter by
Senator John T. Morgan on the work
of Southern States In restricting the
Wo print elsewhere on this page a
letter by Senator Morgan of Alabama,
railed out by the proposition, since
adopted by the Constitutional Conven
tion of that State, to establish a heredi
tary qualification for the suffrage.
Tlils utterance of the Alabama Sen
ntor Is not new. Ills letter was writ
ten n month ago, but It Is of a signifi
cance so profound and of a statesman
like perception so tructhat It cannot
become out of date.
It makes manifest that by the de
vice of the "grandfather clause," anil
kindred devices to take nway the privi
lege of the franchise from negro citi
zens without excluding whites with
the same disqualification of Illiter
acy, Southern States have violated tho
fundamental principle of democratic
government, ond thus Introduced Into
our politics a question of more mo
mentous Importance than any o'her
which has been projected In the His
tory of the American llpubllc.
As Senator Morgan says, our' Am
erican Revolution was primarily and
essentially a strugglo to abolish her
editary privilege in government, with
all Kb npphrtcnanccs. This Southern
movement Is now made squarely for
the purpose of reviving that privilege.
"To make blood the medium of trans
mitting the electoral power from fa
ther to son. Is to uproot," from Its foun
dations, the whole system of democra
tic government nnd to reinstate the
system and form of regal government:"
or, to express It differently, to revive
a prime feature of the feudalists sys
tem tho last vestiges of which this Re
public was founded to destroy.
Talk of Imperialistic tendencies in
this country, simply because of our ter
ritorial expansion as a consequenco
of the war with Spain, has tome from
narrow nnd superficial minds; hut In
this revival of hereditary privilege
there is actually a precedent which
violates so radically the essential the
ory of our democratic Republic that It
must be resisted and n linked nnd ren
dered abortive by popular sentiment
jnd removed finally by judicial decision
or our Government as founded and pre
served hitherto will be subverted nnd
a destructive oligarchy of contradic
tory hereditary privilege substituted
for the democracy of the past.
That In this movement Is the only
real dunger now confronting our poli
tical Institutions Is made aprarcnt In
tho Alabama Senator's discerning and
statesmanlike discussion of hereditary
distinctions of franchise. Consequent
ly we givo It great promlnenco today,
In order that It may command tho
thoughtful consideration of every read
er of the Sun. It raises the greatest
question at present before the Ameri
Senator Morgan's letter Is as follows:
Dear Captain White: The American
Revolution was not so much a redress
of grlevnnccs ns it was a struggle to
abolish heredity In government. Thnf
was tho real line of division between
democratic and regal government nnd
the Church established by law. Heredi
ty disappeared, with Its associated
rights of perpetuity In tho ownership
of lands, and many minor heredita
ments of feudalism, such ns titles and
tenures nnd servitudes, when our new
democratic scheme of government was

tenances, such as prerogative nnd titu

the heel of prohibition by our Consti
tution, Whoever would restore any of
these, to that extent discredits the
causo of the Revolution,
Without suffrago the new system had
no possible means of expressing the
sovereign will of the people In laws
and their enforcement by Executive
and Judicial authority.
These necessary agents of the gov
"rnment by and for tho people can only
av chosen by voters; and voters can
only b! created by law, not by Inherl

of the impassablo gulf between regal

The transmission of the electoral
power by the blood of Inherltanra
from father to son would destroy all
distinction between regal government
ond democracy, and would throw the
door wide open for n return to tho
system that the American Revolution
abolished. The steps would be few and
would be rapidly taken, to the complete
restoration of monarchy, so soon as
wc give to any c)dss of voters the pow
er to qualify their sow as voters by
inheritance. In this case, it Is the first
step that tells with fatal and Irrevoca
ble effect. The argument Is irresisti
ble', that office should follow the
blood If the power that creates them Is
the blood of inheritance; and this Is
all that Is meant in the Uritlsh system
of titled nobility which alone legis

When such a tilled class of voters is
created by the organic law It will soon
occur to them that no other class
should be allowed to vote, nnd they
will t'surp all power. It Is far from be
ing a comfort to me that some negroes
are included, and many white men arc
left out, by the ordinance reported by
the majority of tho committee on suf
frage in this ordinance of Inheritable
Mood. With great respect,

FREE MA L
The preliminary canvass of the let
ter carriers In Honolulu has revealed
a remarkable state of Inertia, lethargy
or conservatism among tho people of
Honolulu. There seems to be large
numbers who are unwilling to give up
the Joy of going to the post ofllno to
ktaml in line In the heat and dust and
wait their turn nt tho window. A larg
per cent of the population have never
known the delights of a regular call
ty the postman and now apparently
consider hjs advent an Intrusion upon
the retirement nnd privacy of life.
The house numhnror a few months
ago learned something of Honolulu
-conseivntlsm. Tho Incompleteness of
the numbering of houses is made morp
'apparent fiom the statement of Su-
1 pirinttmlont J. W. Krwln that less
than 2; per cent of the houses in the
free delivery district nro correctly
numbered. The letter carriers huvc
found but 1500 people who want their
letters nnd papers delivered nt their
doors. Over 2000 prefer to go to tho
pest offlco themselves nnd thero nro
two or three hundred who refuse to
give up, the Joy of a dally teto n teto
with the general delivery clerk.
The postofTlce authorities will Inau
gurate the free delivery vystem In spite
mf ndverse conditions and gradually
bring It to a state of perfection as In

cadet gray uniforms and will go out
