Howells on Plutocratic Tendencies.
The question that remains is. How
far tias business characterized our poli
tics? Has business come into control of
the Government, or is the government
still in the hands of the
people? Do parties or persons bribe
voters in New Hamphire or New York?
Do firms or corporations corrupt legis
latures? Have United States Senatorg
bought seats in the most august assembly
in the world? Have large contributors
to election funds received high office
from the executive? Have contractors
even tempted aldermen, and have the
bosses behind the thrones found their
account in tacitly growing rich in a
private station? I affirm none of these
things, and until I have found some
journalist who admits the guilt of his
own party while accusing his esteemed
contemporary's, or some boss who con
fesses that he is not so poor as his hfflu
ence makes him appear, I do not thinK it
would be safe to do so. The proof in
all such cases has as little weight with
the impartial mind as the overhelming
evidence, say, that there are vordical
phantoms. Still, it must be owned that
there are vast numbers of people who
believe that these things are so not so
vast as the number that believe in ghosts
but a majority of the Americans so great
that their vote would not leave a single
elector to the partisans of an opposite
theory in a presidential, election. It is
hard to believe that there is no truth in
them, just as it is hard to believe that
the spirits of the departed have not upon
some emergent occasions revisited the
earth. I can account for their accept
ance by supposing that the minds of the
whole people have been poisoned by
bad n, who have instilled into them
a suspicion of guilt in others which every
American knows himself personally
incapable of. Or is there here and there
an American who secretly, and quite
within the fastnesses of his heart, realizes
that being perplexed and wrought upon
in the extreme, he would give or take a
bribe? Or, if not quite that, is there
some American who is conscious that, as
a matter of business merely, he might
apply business principles to politics?
We all know how very common business
principles ar« with us, ard the thing is
not so wholly impossible. We need not
inquire very nicely what business men
will do or whatother business men willnot
do but if the popular notion that bus
iness is business be correct, and if in
this sense business is a thing not wholly
indistinct from righteousness, it can be
easily seen that the passage from an axi
om to an action need traverse no great
moral space. If we once admit that bu
siness principles have been applied in
procuring statutes, decisions, contracts,
and appointments, as most Americans
believe, then it might certainly be said
that we have a plutocracy, and not a
democracy.—From "Are we a Plutocra
cy?" by W. D. Howells, in North Amer
ican Review for February.
Reform Movements in New York,
'there exists at the present time a con
siderable number of reform movements
in New York that are agreed in their
purpose to destroy Tammany but that
a from one another in
the complexion the administration
which desire to estab
lis in its place. Each of these reform
movement is aiming at precedure. in the
overthrow of existing conditions, and
each of them already regards with a
jealous eye the efforts that are being
made by its competitors to marshal the
approaching campaign. A man or a
clique may be intensely interested in
the weal of his city,and yet be still more
interested in the weal of his city, and yet
be still more interested in the success of
his personal or political scheme for the
compassing of that weal and when it
comes to be a matter between the saving
of his city and the success of his own
plan for saving, he gives the preference
to the latter, and sacrifices the municipal
interests rather than see victorious any
rival policy for the promotion of
that interest. This has occurred repeat
edly in the recent history of this city,
and it is extremely probable that it will
occur over again this year. There are
reputable Democrats who are laboring
and praying for the overthrow of Tam
many Hall, that -would nevertheless ra
ther see Tammany Hall win than to see
a Republican elected mayor and there
are Republicans in large numbers that
are guilty of precisely the same sort of
political bigotry. They will not confess
it, perhaps are not even aware of it they
will not vote the Tammany ticket next
November, but they will do what is in
effect precisely the same thing, they will
refrain from casting an anti-Tammany
ballot and thus become the passive aux
and we are some of us continually net
tled and acerbated by the reflection that
there are political experts of every stripe
that are lounging ambitiously around
waitirg for the opportunity to capture
the movement in the interests of their
own party or prepossession, posing as
reformers till the critical moment comes
and then seizing upon the opportunity
with precisely the same hungry capacity
as that which distinguishes the munici
pal administration we are suffering un
der already. Unpleasant as the fact may
be, it must nevertheless be appreciated
by the rank and file of our reputable ci
tizens that a great deal of the bitterness
with which Tammany Hall is regarded
by some of our conspicuous citizens who
have been taking a long political vaca
tion is due exclusively to the fact, that
they are tired of goining barefoot and
are hunting for dead men's shoes. The
municipal enthusiasm that is developing
among certain political "bach numbers"
certain Republican and Democratic
corpses that have been lying in grave
clothes for some years, waiting for the
resurrection tattoo, is too transparent to
baffle the perceptions of intelligent citi
zens who care to take the candid mea
sure of the situation.—From "Our Pres
