Suggestions for the Democratic
THE RIGHT THING TO DO.
The Washington Post Thinks the
South Has Bjen Too Long Neg?
lected by tho National Demo?
cratic Party. Senator Hill
Indorses the Nomination.
Why should not the Democrats nomi?
nate a southern man next year? Why
wouldn't that be the right thing to do?
tho courageous, tho consistent, tho equi?
table thing? Why, indeed?
Thirty year* have passed since the
crlcse of tho war between tho Rtatce. in
that time nearly all tlu< men who
brouyht on that molaiioholy ooufliot or
took arrive part ill it huvo disnpponrod.
Of tho few who still survive mid who
oooupy public or conspicuous position
itmnybe truly said thai theyaroas good
citizens?as loyal, us patriotic, as truly
devoted to tho re-established union?as
any of their follow countrymen.
They harvo served in tho cabinet nttd
5n congreiss, they have held high place
,in moments of emergency, und at no
?time or under any circumstances have
they proved delinquent in anything that
goes to nniko faithful, intelligent und
zealous representatives of tho Union
and its institutions.
' They have yioldodtprecodenco to none
In jealous advocacy of tho country and
tho flag. %
As for tho fionthrirn pooplo in general
?the present generation?they know of
tho war only by hearsay anil tradition.
To them the war is a incro abstraction,
hardly n persoual memory.
Saving the pride thoy take in the val?
or aud devotion of their fathers?a BOU
.timent which honors thoui?they think
and rememher nothing of tho war.
Thoy hnvo no thought or dronm which
docs not inolnde the glory, the groat
ness and the porpntuity of the Union,
flow much longer is tho south, tho
ino3t distinctively American section . f
.the country, to ho tho poor rotation in
tho family of tho states? Upon whnl
.hypothesis does tho Democratic party
propose to oxolutlo from recognition
and from leadership threo-fourtha of its
strength, its BUbstnnoo and its hrniusV
"Without tho south the national Democ?
racy would ho an iuconsiderablo factor
Its potency, itfi consequence, its
-weight, coino from tho south. Tnko
away tho BOUth, and tho Democratic
party, so far ns concerns national af?
fairs, would be at poor and luefTeotunl
Why, then, does tho party hold to the
south'* reluctant, lips the bitter cup of
self offacemont, and why is it that a
proud, intelligent and homogeneous
peoplo bring themselves to drink?
"Where is tho justice, tho propriety, tho
?Wisdom, of tho arraugemont?
It is diliicult, looking at tho matter
rationally, to understand the attitndo
of the national party and tho acquiea
ccqco of tho south. Horowehavo threo
fourths of an organization quiotly Bub
mitting to domination by tho other
fourth and tamely indorsing n stigma
?which it Bhonld by every consideration
?of dignity resent.
For two docados nnd>moro it has been
on accepted theory that a southern can?
didate would alarm tho-American peo?
And during nil that time the southern
Democracy have assentod without pro
?test, meekly boruo tho boat and burden
of successivo campaigns, furnish od 11 x > ?
rank and file for all tho great battles
aud stood aside iu humble deferonoc
while the fruits of their strength and
prowess wero divided among the nu m
hers of on insignificant contingent. Dut
At most tliiB was-only an expodii lit.
It wns never essentially a matter of
principle and propriety. Southern men
?were just na much citizens of the
United States in 186G ns they are today.
Tho arrangement is preposterous. It
is an arrangement under which tho na?
tional Democracy cannot much longer
"ho held together. The south has sat hi -
low the salt for 80 years, and in all that
linio tho south has Bupplicd the ban
-tqaet, not only with tho salt itself, but
?with every ono of tho viands it was used
to savor. For how many more yoars will
the south enduro this degradation and
tho north continue to profit by it?
Why not a southern Democrat for
Oenator Hill's Opinion.
Upon this subject Tho Post received
the following telegram from Senator
Hill of Now York:
A 1.73 AX Vi April 4.

ALLISON FOR PRESIDENT.
A 9yttcmatle Effort to Get nini Nominated
at Ho- Republican National Convention.
A systematic offort is said to bo on
loot to secure f< r Senator Allison of
Iowa the noiniuntiou for the pri sirtnncy
at tho Republican national convention
to b?\< held noxt spring.
The niattur lias not yet gono fnr
enbngh to ennblo rlofluito details to t>o
pablisbod. It originates, howovor, in
tho fact that while Senator Allison is
believed to possess morn than usual
availability ho has uovcr boon able to
Bcoure an effective organization i ither
in or out of his stnto. There is no
question Hjat. Allison's name is being
considered by many loading politicians
who boliova that if ho is nominated he
can bo elected. They want, tborofore,
to prgnniza for him :? strong support.
This inovomont recalls tho fact that
Senator Allison lias uovcr beon a load?
er. In the senate ho has boeu an Indus*
WILLIAM D. ALLISOX.
trions, conRoicutions and oonsorvntivo j
worker, carofully scrutinizing nil ox
ponditurcs of tbo govorumeYil monoy,
and his judgmont has been given great
Ilo might have beon a second Sher?
man if he had emphatically espoused
tbo gold sido of the financial quostion,
or ho might hnvo occupied th"> place of
Senator Teller if ho had conio out nn
cotnprotnisiugly on tho side of silvor.
Ho has, however, always* sought tho
middle course, endeavoring to CO til -
promiso and harmonize conflicting
opinions. He has never been prominent
ly idoutiflod with either Bide, although
both factions regard him as a man of
high integrity and much ability.
It is to prevent, a repetition of tho
experience of 1888 that some of Mr. Al?
lison's friends in tho senate and elso
where are talking seriously and vigor?
ously niauagiug his oatnpnign. Allison
clubs could bo started in Iowa and oili?
er western slates this Ruinmor, nud the
interest in him could bo fnnnod Into n
flame. With location In his favor, with
a growing und conservative state back of
him, with an nnitnpenchablo record of
industry and hont sty in tho sennto, Iiis
friends say that they believe his chances
bettor than those of any other Republic
an who has been named. ? Wnshiugtou
Oorcrnor Morton Also in Hie Field.
News comes from New York that.
Governor Morton is out for the presi?
dency. He believes ho has ngood chance
to secure tbo Republican nomination
and is earnestly at work arranging to
have the New York delegation solid and
enthusiastic in his support. This intel?
ligence reaches Washington through
sources which command respect. Mr.
Morton was never more earnest in bis
life and is ready to spend any amount
Of money in order to attain his ambi?
tion. The politicians already consider
it settled that Ntw Vork will present
Morton. The Morion movement bodes
no good to ox-Prcsidcnt Harrison, and
it is believed McKinley will bo in best
position to profit by tho Morion effort in
tho end, for no one imagines tho Mew
York governor will be nominated. Al?
ready the Harrison following in Now
York talks of bringing ox-Secretary
Tracy Out as a candidate, not in any SO
rions hopo of nominating him, but for
the purpose of holding n few delegates
in hand.?Chicago Times-Herald.
