Squatter Sovereignty—How it works.
. i
1 It ln.s alwnya been Ihe custom of tbl
' Democracy to ticklo the ours of the maeaei
. With high-sounding phrases, which Wert
only aound. ilgnlfylng nothing, With thvai
captivating phrases we reckon "Squittei
I aoferei gnty " than which a greater hum
bug was never hutched in the prolific brain
I of the modern Democracy, It sounds al
very nice, and foolish persona, and person,
over credulous might think it meant just
' what it an ill , and so firmly fixed are they
in that belief thut Eterae'a aruummtum
'"Jlttulatorium would he the best ayitem ol
reasoning that could be applied to their re
iterations. "Squatter Sovereignty" says the oracle
I of Democracy, tho grea' Michlgander Il
allowing tho aquattera in a territory to re
gulate their own domestic, institutions in
their own way. Thut loewi fair it snumh
fair it tmeib fair it faciei fair but it i.j
nevertheless, tin arrant humbug, as the
sequel shows. The territory ol Kansas wat
'erected with "his doctrine prominent in iti
net of incorporation, so 10 speak. " Squat
ter sovereignty" was made tho watchword
in two campaigns in Ohio, and it come off
; conquered. Popular sovereignty knocked
tho hreuth out of it, and, having lost the
prestige of its grsatness, it now shows its
real colors in Kanaaa, There the people
becoming weary of the officious kindness
' of Mi$$ouriant, concluded it was time u
j try how "squatter sovereignty" worked, and
, forthwith took mutters into their own hands.
, This wai '-squatter sovereignty " in Cluneal
! but tiio ruling powers in Kansas knew that
, this principle was onlv intended to he talkail
about, not ac'ed on, nnJ they forthwltl
I send abroad lor armed MM to come in aur
,'ocruvh out" this evidence of "squatter I0V
' irelgnty" in action. Tho squatters nre tc
; bo taught a lesson they must learn thul
th incorporation of tkijt doctrine into the
territorial net was merely intended as n
fUM, and not to bo tnkeu in earnest. Il
: any one ia desirous of pursuing this idea
further we udvise them to keep an eye on
the movement of things in Ksnsas. A more
jltupanduui outrage than is being now per
