tions. A ecrt.iin sum of money isnlways
inilispenstiljlc in eonneetiou with election
eering machinery, the necessity of " hiel
is apparent to the most simple and hon
est. It must be had for the publication
and distribution of documents, for tin
exiienscs of speakers or committees, lot
the hire of public halls, tor stationery,
lights and numberless other minor ex
panses, all of which are inevitable and
lcL'itimate. This is not what is meant by
money in polities.
Such use is based upon the dctcsuibU
and degrading view of human natun
that every man has his price, and that u'
the arbitrament of great publie(Ucstions
by the ballot, that great and incstiiuabU
right and privilege of the freeman can b
e introlled by money, and the supposi
tious freemen can be bought ami sold like
cattle. Those who thus estimate thest
human cattle seem to know what they
are about ; they seem to know their mar
ket and go into it open handed withbids.
and seem to calculate with accuracy as to
the number needed for their purchases,
anil the ability to buy what thev want.
It may be that in old times money was
a much scarcer commodity than it is now.
Hut we cannot help thinking that then
men and methods were more honest than
they are now. Men were as readily per
suaded by the demagogue as they art
now; thev may as readily have voted
wrongly as they do now. Hut they en
gaged in politics with much more sincer

the impulses of passion of prejudice, lhe

dictates of reason. If their heads won
wrong, their hearts were right. Tlie.
were relatively honest ; for they had not
lost the experience or forgotten the tradi
tions of what their right to the tree use
of the ballot had cost them or then
Now it is party, no longer country:
now it is pay for the use ol the ballot,
not principle that governs its application.
And those who managecanipaignscooiU
calculate how much money is needed,
where it is to come from, and how it is to
lie applied, knowing almost exactly the
amount of purchascablc material, am;
almost surely forecasting the results ol a
A practice and a principle so widely rec
ognized and adopted, so shamelessly
avowed bv the purchasing power and so
il.-ivislilv accented bv the parties so sell
ing themselves, can have but one result.
Public and private virtue thus corrupted
puts liberty wholly in the hands ol llu
money power. The accumulation ol co
lossal fortunes in the hands of a few, the
abstraction of money from the hands 01
the vast majority, gives that enormous
dominating power to absolutely dic
tate the destiny of the country. VYealtl
is interested to protect and entrench
itself. Wealth is indifferent to the we!
fare of all but itself. If wealth can buy
nower. as it buvs everything else, wealth
will buy power. If it be necessary for
wealth to buy votes, it will buy votes
It litis done so. It has not hesitated t
boast of its purchases. The last I'resi
deutial election, directly and indirectly
was a purchase. Kich men came into tin
market and made their bids; degenerate
voters met them and took the mone
offered for their votes.
And so it will go, until some of these
days, not lar off as thingsarenowgoin
the Presidency, like the Roman im
perial crown, will be set up and sold to
the highest bidder.
Every few days we find reasons for the
absence of hospitality extended to the
negro fleeing from the terrors of his po
sition in the South. People on the other
side of the line are clamoring to
the i.egro to "get up and get;"
to get somewhere, to get out
of the South; but not to get to their side.
The truth is they don't want the negro
among them; they are more than willing
to use him as an element of mischief on
Southern soil and among Southern
v whites; but they are perfectly correct in
..ii'i -estimate. The other day the peo
ple ol Murray, Ohio, set fire to the house
of a colored citizen and destroyed it
'Cause why ? "No blacks were wanted
in that town." Not long ago the people
of that same State had a little race war
about their mixed schools, and the
blacks were driven to the wall. Later
on, the war was taken up by thechildren
of both races. The people who manifest
such interest in the negro among us to
the extent, if need lie, ofbringingon a race
war do so, not that they love the negro.
but that they hate us.
