Its leaders will, of course, struggle to
maintain tho individuality of tho party, j
hut if il is defeated thia year, its only
hope fo. salvation will be In its recogni
tion of principles which have been hereto
fore foreign to its policy. In other words,
the Republican party, if defeated tine

The spoils of office and tho bloody shirt
have heretofore been the two great ele
incuts of strength of the Republican party,
anil these having lost their beneficial in- '

found or the party must forever succumb
to tho popular indignation which has re
buked ii by depriving it of its patronage,
and by renouncing tho policy which at
tempts lo rekindle a Haine out of tho ashes
of sectional nnimosity. If tho Republican
party were to abandon these pillars of the
faith w hich has kept il in power for so
ninny years, !' would he no longer the
Republican party. When sectionalism
is completely obliterated there will
lie no further use for the Republican
party, whose mission is one. not of peace,
hut of discord lind discontent. As long
as suth a party exists, so long will it
cling to the bloody shirt doctrine. Day i
hy day tin; protest of the people against
the narrowness and bitterness of such a
national policy grow stronger and
.stronger, and thc time will soon arrive
when no party will tiaro go before tho
people on such an issue. This is tho
point to which the Republican party is
drifting. When it reaches the stage
where it sees that it has nothing to gain
by sui h a course, then the party must no
