Democracy had a political faith founded on
the principle of Jefferson, and they fought
for it without hope of reward. There leis
never been a time since 1870 when the inn

who have swindled it will form a now

There is something remarkable in thc
professional success which bas attended
Mr. Conkliug since ho was forood oui ol
politics. As; a general thing, the lawyet
who is long in political life bccoim
lawyer on ly in name. Ho may pass for
one when among those not learned in
the law, but among practitioners ho
passes for a politician. Tho reason for
this is obvious. The laws of Parliament
or Congress are not the rules of Courts
or tho decisions of tho Justices, and only
the natural lawyer follows the latter after
the necessity for doing so has passed.
Colliding never abandoned tho Custom.
