THE MENACE OF PLUTOCRACY.
(Prom Hi" Springfield (Mass.) Repub
Prof. Gold win Smith can scarcely be
charged with being an apostle of social?
ism or any other dreadful Ism. Yet in
IiIh pamphlet of observations regard?
ing the Presidential contest in Amer?
ica a sustained'attack upon plutocracy,
because U Is a mennce to Democratic
Institutions, Indiscernible. Prof, smith,
to our mind, is an accurate observer of
moderate conditions on this continent,
where be has resided for over thirty
years. He places his finger on acknowl?
edged facts in saying that "the re?
sources of the continent, marvolously
developed, and financial speculation
have bred a body of wealth having its
center In the I'.'nst. le aded by a fabu?
lous multi-mllllphnirlsm, intrenched by
a multiplicity of great corporations and
trusts, daily absorbing money and ex?
tending its Influence, feeling more and
more the general unity of its interests,
ami threatening. If its ascendency be
not moderated, to dominate the state."
Tills tremendous power is past the
H^lge of timidity; it boldly grasps the
scepter of government.
It Is folly to rail at wealth honestly
acquired rind beneficently used. Prof.
Smith. Indeed, is far from identifying
himself with anti-capitalist agitation;
but lie insists Upon observing facts and
telling the simple truth. Hence lie con?
tinues his analysis of the menacing
character of American plutocracy; "It
may buy legislatures, judlciarlcs.munl
clpallties, perhaps even churches. ? * *
It may command the public journals
nnd thus control public opinion. It
may kill commercially any one who op?
poses it. Eveu universities, fed by its
Preventive and sure cure for all
Diseases, such as Chills. Fever nnd Ague,
Loss of Appetite, Bilious and Dyspeptic
Disorders. Headache; Pains In the Back,
Side, or Limbs, Colds. La Grippe, Neu?
ralgia, etc. At all druggists. uOc. jy:)2-3in
bounty, may fall under Its political In?
fluence. A limit"?and bow true this 14
?"cun hardly be set to the extension o?
Us power in an age In which the uni?
versal object of desire Is money, with
the enjoyment which money provides."
Shall supreme power pass finally Into
the grasp Of accumulated wealth? Shall
What are the general tendencies of
great wealth when In contact with
democracy? It is Idle to deny that. In
a social sense, the leveling and bleak
surroundings furnished by democratic
Institutions do not satisfy It.
As Professor Smith says, "It Is use?
less to rail at a class for following its
natural bent." Hut what are the facts?
"At heart 1} sighs for a court and aris?
tocracy." It Is even introducing the
powdered-headed footman, while he Is
going out of fashion In England. Its
social centre Is shifting more and more
from the Pulled States to monarchical
and aristocratic England, where it can
take hold on the mantle of high soci?
ety, get more homage und subser?
viency for its wealth, hope perhaps
in the end to win its way to the circle
of royalty, and. if it becomes nttturul
ized, to obtain a knighthood or even a
peerage, it barters the hands or Its!
daughters and Its millions tor aristo?
cratic connection. One ol its leudiug I
members has just abandoned his native
country for the country ot his class,
while he continues to draw a royal In?
come from the Industry of New York."
Not bine is truer than this. And
much more than Professor Smith has
said could be asserted regarding the
natural social bent of American
wealth. There t-an be no doubt that
by its matrimonial alliances with P.rlt
Ish aristocrats, and even more by Its
eagerness to contract them. it. has rc
invigorutcd and enveloped wlt.h a new
and inugnillceiil prestige the institution
of ii hereditary nobility. No true
American need fear to assert that such
tendencies, while perfectly natural,
perhaps, are antagonistic to democracy
and, therefore, a menace to it.
What arc the general tendencies of
great wealth politically'? Are they less
a menace in democracy than Its social
tendencies? IS very student knows what
those tendencies have been throughout
I ho past. Professor Smith recalls one
instance of how a republic: fell under
the domination of mere money. "The
republic <>f Florence, without change of
Its political forms, was effectually en?
slaved by the wealth Ot the Medicis.
Florence was small. It is true. Pin
so was the wealth of the Medicis
compared With the cojlectivc fortunes
of the Polled Slates.'." ll would he
dltllcuit. indeed, for any one to point
to an era. or a country at all devel?
oped. In which wealth Showed real
sympathy with democracy. Wealth
has always opposed democracy's rise,
mid at democracy's fall wealth has be?
strode it like a colossus. When Hamil?
ton said io the convention of 1 VST which
framed the Constitution ot the United
Status, "a democratic government of
the mass of the people can never be
good," and "all communities divide
themselves into a low and the many;
?the first are the rlcji and well-born:
the others the mass of the people"?
when he said I hose things, and also,
"see- the excellency of the British ex
ecullvc," he was lighting the democ?
racy or Jefferson in behalf of wealth,
which at heart preferred monarchical
Institutions. Wealth is almost invari?
ably, in crisis, opposed to democratic
principles, whether In England, where
Rurkc's passionate outcries ngulnst the
French revolution unhappily Incited
the twenty-two years' war between
England and France, or In the Pulled
Slates when the slave power of the
South enjoyed the support of the mo?
ney power of the North.
It seems to be an instinct with a
colossal money power resting in pri?
vate hands to ally itself with forces or
causes which are not In true harmony
with the Democratic principle. It im?
presses Prof. Smith, therefore, as not
in the least surprising that wealth
should now almost solidly support the
policy of Imperialism in America.
"That the plutocracy," ho writes, "Is at
once conscious of the general identity
of its interests, and feels that Imperial?
ism Is congenial to it. is shown by the
unanimity with which it ranges itself
under the Imperialist banner in this
contest. Even witli silver magnates,
the bias of class, it appears, I* stronger
than Hint of silver." It might bo said,
too. as a logical converse, that Hie very
solidity of the support of Imperialism
by wealth indicates that wealth In?
stinctively sees in Hie Imperialistic
venture an attack upon uncongenial
principles. Prof. Smith also finds evi?
dence or the growth of an alliance
against Democracy in this circum?
stance of our politics:
In Hie Republican platform of 1S9G
continental union was a plank. It has
now been struck out. The immediate
cause of the omission, no doubt, is the
tnclt alliance or the Republican party
with the conservative parly, which is
now dominant In England, nnd \" in?
totu'oly- opposed Jo continental union,
hoping always In'its heart to found in
Canndn a power differing In spirit and
' Institutions from the Democracy of the
United States. But plutocracy also
cannot help viewing with secret, per?
haps hair-unconscious, complacency,
the outpost or monarchy and aristo?
cracy With its litlle court and minia?
ture peerage on this democratic hemi?
sphere. This again is but. a natural
tendency, about which it would be folly
to utter hard words, but of whic h it is
necessary to take note.
Socially and politically, great wealth
is naturally. Instinctively out of sym?
pathy with Democracy. Is it of no
significance, therefore, to the American
people that in the present great contest
over an Indorsement or Imperialism by
the nation this power of wealth should
bo so solidly, so aggressively rallied to
the support of Imperialistic policy?
This attitude of (ho colossal money
power Is part of that drift of things
which it is necessary to observe at
every quadrennial election, it is ah al?
titude which wealth assumes in all the
great nations to-day?in France, in
Germany, In Britain?arid cannot be as?
cribed to other causes of a loc al nature.
The sum and substance of the situation
is tliat Imperialism and sordid wealth
combined are a plutocracy which is
starting a reaction against Democracy
throughout the civilized world.

THE WORLD OF SPORT
(By Telegraph to Vlrginian-Pllot.)
Washington, Oct. 13.?The Carlisle
Indians defeated the University of
Virginia eleven at National Park to
duy by a score of 16 to 2. A fair crowd
made up largely of excursionists from
Virginia, was present. The ground
was too muddy for good play, and the
handling of punts was made dilllcull
by the wet ball. The Indians were
slightly heavier than the Virginians,
and carried the game with a rush. Vir?
ginia's defensive tactics improved as
the game progressed, and Walker, the
?University right tackle, was a tower
of strength, at times throwing the en?
tire Indian line. The Indians made a
touch down stum after tin? game began,,
but.the Virginians steadied, and it was
only by the strength of the Indian rush
line that the goal was won. In the sec?
ond half tin; Indians scored a touch ?
down but failed to kick goal, but soon'
after kicked goal from the Hold. The I
game was extremely clean throughout. I
with only one accident. Hai tis, of Vir?
ginia slightly injuring his arm. lie
was replaced by Mulford. The line up: I

Perhaps there is still a. means by
which a mutual understanding can be
reached by the property holders on
Pearl street,whose land would be effect?
ed it' ihai thoroughfare is widened, and
the Town Council. Some of the par-j
ties who.are affected are* willing to
transfer the 17 2-3 feet of land neces?
sary to widen the street for the same,
amount of land on the other side of
them, notwithstanding the land desired
to widen the street is front property, j
und, therefore; worth more. The street !
. In question is only a 10-fool lane, and]
will be !., Berkley some day What
Water street Is to Norfolk. The pro?
perty holders along the street have all
reserved the portion necessary to widen
the street, knowing that It must be
: done seme day. Now. since the court
appointed an appraising committee,
composed of men whose Judgment can
i not be questioned, and the Council has
j rejected their decision as exorbitant.

whole amount from Chestnut street to

The lots are shortened to the extent of

to-day a hea I before Imp, the greatest
I mare of the age, in the record time of
Kive horses started, with Jack Point
in front, but P.urns quickly took Imp
out in her favorite place, and led past
the grandstand the first time, with \
.Tack Point, Pink Coat. Kthelbert and
Maid of Hnrlom following in the order
named and well hunched. Imp, run?
ning with that machine-like stride,
drew away rounding the first turn and
showed the way up the back stretch by
a length nnd a half. Rounding the far
turn Imp drew away and led into the
stretch by two lengths. Odom sent
Ethelbert after her. however, and from
there home it was a duel between the
two. At the first furlong pol< Ethel
bert had moved up on even terms with
the black whirlwind and heads only
separated them to the wire. Imp re?
sponded gamely under Hums' vigorous
ride, but Ethelbert had the most in
reserve and won handily without the
use of whip or spur.
