LAW AND CONDUCT.
Good reeolBtloas, ratrUcnlarly f the New Year
variety, ought to be kept religiously. Good rso
lmkMM. if kept and made a ptiaeiple of conduct,
are a tremendous uplift to character; but If broken
tbe reaalt i worm than if aoae.liad been record
ed. The old habits aad thins foresworn but gain
a Brmer footaoU amoag the wreckage of promise.
It follows that good revolutions ought not t be
entered into lightly.
It i a depressing reflection that the eon
duct which depend for regulation, and the char
acter which depend for development, upon express
resolutions are in a bad way. While of Itself the
fact that resolutions are made is an encouraging
sign of aspiration, it is nearly always a sign. too.
of weakness aad dire need In character. There
is absolutely nothing to lie said against the reso
lutions which are the l-asls of genuine and ul
stantlal reforms, but It is more often the case that
character Is built by a steady and gradual process,
and conduct is developed slowly and scientifically.
Spasmodic efforts rarely go far.
There is some analogy between tbe impulsive and
annual reformer and the State or tuition whicj !

After diseasing all of tbe devices of the State
which have experiueatrd toward the control of
legislatures. Mr. Ilayaes gives' his approval to a
auggested plaa to rote hbob Senatorial candidates
in direet primarfea. and to print upon the otacial

candidates who receive a certain number of totea

a Senator by the Australian ballot, each member
to vote on the first ballot for three on the list, and
on the second for one or two n the case may lie
out of the three highest, aa determined by the first

that conduct has ilercioiicd rather by ciaihaizins

Practically the great achievement of the reform
ware is in accentuating old principles of right and

Ami he concludes by remarking that unless the
Stiate can speedily give some evidence of responsi

lie young when the people, tired of treachery on tbe
pan of their representatives, will east aside the es
