What followed the increase of the
American regulars after the Mexi

American history the Cabinet In
pawer attempted to oppress the
people by means of the regular ar

while oa Kansas by the bayonets
of Dal tad States troops dispersing

Villi attempt at tyranny inaugu
rated the troubles that ended in
theoivll war, and It was the party
i toat had used the army to oppress
tho people or Kansas that was de
stroyed in that civil war. Remem
ber that toe eases were very sim
ilar In ISM and 1876. In Kansas it
* seams necessary for the party in
•awe*to force a hated Constitu
tion on an unwilling people, and
the regulars wera the only troops
that could be trusted to execute
atresia policy. In 1876 It became
neat Mary for the party lo power to
force a cheating usurper on an un
willing House of Representatives.
Once more (be regulars were
brought forward, and they subdued
the representatives of the people
by exciting groundless fears. There

It Is only since the traditions

the Kansas Imbroglio United
States troops were never seen near
towns at election*, an 1 their pres
ence was jealously resented if too
frequent at any other times. Since
the civil war, however, this
bae been all changed. Regu
lar officers, sentries and patrols
have been common sights south of
Mason and Dixon's line. The men
have always been employed for
, the same purposes, entirely for
eign to the character of a soldier.
They have acted as spies, detec
tives, thief catchers, revenue
agents, anything aud everything
except soldiers. Bit the object of
the Military Ring at Washington
has been attained all the same.

pose that the possession i - fur
paper Is the stepping slum,
and fortune; but how man.,
reaped the whirlwind, let
eouiilltss failures testify. A<.
temporary truly says the univeit
conceit iv men's minds in regard U
conducting newspapers arises
"from the fact that every man uow
a-tlays considers himself a teacher,
and that he only needs his thoughts
placed iv type to secure for him
self and them conspicuous consid
eration." They seem to forget
that readers have some desires,
some wishes to propitiate. And
they forget that readers are
jealoue of their rights. What is
really required iv a newspaper is
the news; told In terse and lumin
ous languge; energy, aud unsleep
ing watchfulness are required, and
above all there must lie a well de
fined policy marked out for a paper,
Which should be established only
to fill a well defined want. News-

vm over, and did not engage In any
conflict. It ia only fair to expect,
judging from the history or the regu
lars in 1801, that had the rioters been
really in earnest and bent on fight
ing as they were In the South, the
regulars would have surrendered
as tamely as they did then. For
this is the distinguishing charac
teristic of our present force of regu
lars, so called. As long as the mat
ter is confined to threats and show
of force, they are In their element,
but when actual conflict arrives
they have always beeu found want
ing as a class, This was shown at
Pittsburgh by the Federal Major
BufflngtoD, who ac:ually refused to
receive the wounded men of Brin
tou's militia to save them from
pursuit of the rioters, for fear it
might bring him into conflict with
what he ssw was a real danger.
Yet administration papers call
Brinton incapable, aud fall to cen
sure the prudent Bulllugton.
But this is all of a piece with the
rest. Hartranft is a Grant man,
who allows the Pennsylvania mil
itia to fall into an unserviceable
condition, so as to get an excuse to
call in the regulars. The only
States in the Uuioo to-day that
have a serviceable militia are New
York, New Jersey and Connecticut,
all three Democratic for several
years, aud it is under the rule of
Democratic Governors that each
has formed its local forces. If every
State had followed their example,
we need not fear the regulars; but,
alas, siuce the close of the civil
war the militia ofevery Republican
State has been allowed to go to
rack and ruin, so as to give Gov
ernors an excuse to call in regulars
to suppress riots.
The danger ia not fanciful, is not
far off. It is on us and threatening
us more and more daily. The
House of Representatives sub
mitted to be overawed iv 1877 by
the army, aud railed to stick to its
colors about refusing the army its
pay. During that .summer the mil
road bauds were systematically
goaled aud irritated by the author
ities of the Republican belt of
States into riots, which were made
an excuse to call iv regulars "to
quell the mob." The Democratic
State of New York saw no serious
riots, aud put down what local
trouble existed by its own local
militia—the proper weapon when
police fails, Bui the beginning has
beeu made, aud United Siatis
troops have been employed to reg
ulate affairs iv several Northern
States, while not one of the Stales
alarmed last year has taken meas
ures to improve its militia. All the
officers of the only good militia
regiment In Philadelphia recently
resigned in disgust because they
found that there was no hope of re
form In their division. The infer
ence of this fact is plain. Gov.
Bartfanft has been a soldier and
knows his business; he knows the
defects of his militia and Ihe way
to remedy them; but lie is a Repub
lican and a Grant man; be longs
for the man on horseback and a big
army of "professional soldiers. '
Therefore be deliberately allows
his State militia to decay, so that
he may call in the regulars again if

Boston, August 30tb.—General
Butler, in a curd accepting the
no situation for Governor of Massa
chusetts, says: I take the trust
with all ils cares anil will devote
all of the intelligence, labor, fore
thought and energy which in me
lies, and will use all the power
which they and those who think
with them may give me, to relieve
the people's buidens and bring
about a more equal and efficient
administration of the laws of ibis
Commonwealth, which they wish.
As we have no organization or
platform of pal ty principles, either
State or National, it may not be
inappropriate to set forth the prin
ciples which will guide my politi
cal measures, as well as the con
duct of all governmental func
tions which may he entrusted to
me. Equal rights, equal duties,
equal powers, equal burdens, equal
privileges ami equal protection by
the Ijws to every man, every
where under the government, State
or National. The laws of taxation
should be made so plain, so direct
ami efficient, and be so faithfully
administered, that all of the prop
erty of every kind in the Common
wealth should be taxed just
once every year, as lightly as
possible, equally and fairly, and
so that no one can escape the
public burden. A law regulating
the rate of interest is advocated.
The repeal of the law against usu
ry has, in many cases, ruined both
the borrower aud the savings
banks. It certainly has shaken to
its foundation our savings bank
system. The result may teach the
managers of these institutions
that, where the Almighty thun
dered his tew laws for his chosen
people from Mount Sinai, the only
financial law delivered to Moses
was, "Take thee no usury of thy
brother or increase." But God was
an omnipotent law. Abolish as far
as we can the Board of Commis
sioners and the unconstitutionally
appointed officers and sinecures
with their relatives and employes
now living upon the substance «f
the people, extorted from them by
taxation. We have no political
machinery, no political wire
workers, who can make a claim on
us. We are directly from the peo
ple and of the people. Nay. the
people themselves. Bet the people
interpose jmt this once between
the governing ring and the people,
without the middlemen of the eon
vention or regard to political is
sues. The legislative and execu

not affect the administration
of national affairs in any
way and if they do their full duty
to the people and do the work of
the people instead of thrusting It
upon Boards and Commissions and
attend to the reforms needed at
home, they will have full employ
ment for all their time. We do not
ask, therefore, those who act with
us to intermit, change or alter
any political opinions whatever
upon any subject, but any one see
ing the necessity, as we see it, of
relieving the people's burdens and
bringing about a more equal and
efficient administration of the laws
of the State, is invited to act with
us for that end.
