It suggests any tiling but moral fragrance.
Tlie conduct of a bad representatite of a
cli-s should not lead us to condemn the
class. The word "politics" has a noble or
igin and a grand hUtory. It should be pu
nned not banished. Although often asso
ciated with corrupt practices and rough
manner-, it ha-a common origin with the
wold "politeness.'' TheoM Idea of the poli
ticians was. If one who attended the affairs
of a city or state and administered the af
fairs of a got eminent, but under the new
deiinltiou, it means one who schemes
for isiiitics. regardless of principles, and
by method- which will not bear the
light a shrewd schemer untrauimeled
by Cod or conscience, not i ccessarilt a
trieiid of Cesar, but one who, in tlie mine
of Cesar, is nr-t and I t-t a friend of him
self. A strong tendency in this direction
ha- produced a retul-iou of feeling In the
minds ot many Clin-tian men and women

true doctrine of Christiinity it Inch defends

as to defy Coil and Ills I ins. The corrupt
lebelhon against ditine authority leads to
! the tyraulcal idea that "might mikes right"
that the majority should rule. Hut a
corrupt majority i- a- tyraiucal as ant de--pot

A tirtuous. self-re-pecting majority, is

done if the Christian, the religious element,
eschews imbue- altogether, and leates the
ward primaries and the jiolU in the
hands of unprincipled schemers? In so
tar as the politician i- unprincipled, the
theory of our got eminent sutlers at his
hands. In so far as our population is
alien. Ignorant and trained to ideas foreign
to our theory of liberty, it is to lie expected
that Hie best intentions will measurably fail
of intended rc-ults. Dr. Falconer ampli
ticd ujmmi the idea that the preponderance
or foreigners in tliiscountry, many of them
ignorant of our theory of personal liberty,
many of them of ticious nature and hating
left their own country for that country's
goo I, was a menace to our goterinnent and
an iinpedmu nt to the purity of our politics.
It is not surprising tint we Iind the tt aril
