IMPERIALISM--LOGICALLY A REFUB
We have received the J.uniry nam

and Genealogical Maszine, pub'ished
by the South Carolina Historical So
ciety. It contains. mu.ch interes-ing
matter, and deserwe' success,. The

The letter frow Thm.as Jefferscn to
Judge William Jubz.:st'n is q'ite in

The imperialism of the Rqub.ican
party and its ceioriizi:.g policy are
nothirg new to that party. I. this
letter written in 1823 'i homas Jefferson
save: "Our opponew s a e fai at;ead of
us in preparation; for placing their
cause favorably before posterity. * *
The f:.ct ia that, at .;.e formation of
our government, cany had formed
their political opinicns on European
writings and practices, believing the
experience of old c-unitries, -and asre
cially cf Englard, abusive as it was,
to he a safer guide than mere theory.
* * I the Convention which
formed our governmant, they endeav
ored to draw the cordi of power as
tight as they could obtain them, to les
sen the dependence of the general
functionaires on their constituents, to
subject to them those of tho States, to
weaken their means of maintsining
t'-he steady 6quilibrinm which the
majority of the convention had deemed
salutory for both branches, general
and local. * * * The cherishmept
of the people then was our principle,
the fear and distrut of them that of
the other party."
This has, been the bistory of the
Republican party. Mr. Jefferson con
cludes that the original objects of the
ederalists (now Republicans) were'
',) "to warp our government more to

to a extent, sad toe

object of the party is modifesad in
the policy of the party with refererec4
to our new posseaion. Tbe de,truc
tion of "the barriers of the sia*e rov
ernments as co-ordiit-e powers" w as
well nigh accomplished by brate~ torce
from 1860-1865. Encouraged at every
turn, the Republicau party has been
more and more followiog Eurf,rn-an
ideas. It is well row aud 'h to
turn to the old patri,ats for eouinge!
and advice in preseut emergen.cies,
and it is rare that we find that tney
have not predicted present tenab'le*
and pointed out their cause~s.
Mr. Edttor: I feel the interest o my
country so deeply tha~t I am forced to

men, we read of the rapid str ides of
progress throughout the South, but
how much of that progress do we, as
the producers, realize? Does common
sense not teach us that we are yearly
producing millions and there is scarce
-. ly enough left in the prodtucers' hands
to pay taxes en the land it was made
-on? Who is he that does not rejoice
at the progress of our Sutnny South
land? But, ab, how much more gen-'

honest plowman could grasp and ihoM

We are wearing our lives away at the
laboriou task of raising cotton, be
sides impoverisbing our fertile lands,
encouraging and creating millionaires,
devoting our time, talents and labor to
the guano companies, all tending to
enslave us to the trusts and merciless
money worshipers. My friends, will
not ratioval minded men profit by
pait expeeianca? Why, what is cot,
ton bringing to-day?-:10 c3nts, while
last fall the average farmer only ret
lized 5 cents. Do you not see that the
money sharks had things all neatly
arranged to .defraud the producer?
Do we not owe the Atlanta Constitu
