F rom the Literary Digest.
Dominant Forces in Western Life."
The importance of the old North
west Territory the present States of
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Miobigan, and
Wisconsin was brought sharply to
view in the last Presidential eleotion.
Prof. Frederick J. Turner, of the
University of Wisconaiu, presents
(Atlantic Monthly, April) a etudy of
the growth of conditions which pre
vail in that section. The valua of
such astody is emphasized by these
statements, showing the pruaeut pow
er of the old Northwest:
''Sincel8G0 the center of population
of the United States has rented within
its limits, and the center of manufac
turing in the nation lies eiht miles
from President McKinley's Ohio home
Of the seven men who have been eloo-
ted to the Presidency of the United
States since 1860, six have come from
the old Northwest, and the seventh
come from the kindred region of
western New York. The congres
sional ltepresentatives from these
five states of the old Northwest al
ready outnumber those from the old
Middle States, find are three times
as numerous as those from New Eng
land. ...
"The States of the old Northwest
gave to MoKinley a plurality of over
307,000 out of a total vote of about 3,
734,000. New England and the Mid
dle State together gave him a plural
ity of 979,000 in about the same vote,
while the farther West gave to Bryan
a decisive net plurality. It thus ap
pears that the old NortnweHt occupi
ed the position of a polittnnl middle
region between East and Wefit. The
significance of this position is mani
fest when it is recalled that this sec
tion is the child of the East and the
mother of the Popnlistio West."
In reviewing the social origins of
these States, Professor Turner traoes
the currents of emigration during the
formative period. He finds in Ohm
Indiana, and Illinois, prior to 1850,
that the emigration from the South,
adapting ilulf to natural conditions,
took the foremost ground of influence.
The streams from Northern States fol
lowed later industrial developments
of the Erie Canal and railroad lines.
Wisconsin received a very large num
ber of Germans, who constitute a dif
ferent element from the population
coming from Eastern sources. It is
pointed out, however, that the East
ern influx came from western New
York and the pioneer sections of New
England, and not from the seacoust'.
After the middle of the century the
old national turnpike, marked by the
oitiesof Columbus, Indianapolis, St.
Louis, and Vaidalia, marked a kind
of line between the Southern and
Northern streams struggling for dom
inance in the territory, and the dif
ferences between the "North and the
South came to a head here. This time
of trial gave to the region, eventually,
much homogeneity and self-consoious-ness,
but Professor Turner considers
that the changes in social conditions
since the war have been almost revo
lutionary in their rapidity and extent,
hence of more social importance in
many respects than those iu the years
r-T?----rt-- 7. ."7"' ' , , , ',

oommnnly referred to as the forma
tive period. So that the Northwest
today "iiQds herself again ; between
contending forces, sharing the inter-
eats of JiHut aud West as onoe before
(hose of North aud South, and foroed
to give her voice ou issues of equal
significance for the destinies of the
ltepublio." '
iSrieuy, Unio baa leaped to a front
rank among the manufacturing States
of the Union, has no preponderant
Booiul center, and a third of her peo
ple are of .foreign; parentage. The
New England element is strongly re
flected in Cleveland. Indiana fol
lows the industrial type of Ohio, with
a Southern element to differentiate
her. The Southern element also re
veals itself in .the Democratic south
west counties of Illinois, while north
ern Illinois holds a larger propor
tion of descendants of New England.
About half of her population is of
foreign parentanoe. Chicago stands
as the type of Northwestern develop
ment for good and for evil, "the rep
resentative power and genius for aot
ingof the middle West;" and "the
State of Illinois will be the battle
ground for social and economic ideala
for the next generation." Miohigan
is two States. The lower peninsula
is the daughter of New xork, over
twelve per cent of the present popu
lation having been born in that State.
In Wisconsin nearly three fourths of
the inhabitants are of foreign parent
age, the Hermans constituting the
larger part, with Scandinavians seo-
ond . The social history of the timber
areas of this State presents the com
mon phenomenon of position in
wealth and politics attained by "cap
tains of industry."
ProfesHor Turner lays stress upon
the difference between the story of
the political leaders who remain in
the place of their birth and share its
economio changes, and that of those
who, by moving to the West, con'
tinue on a new area the old eooial
type The typical Western politician
has knpt one stage ahead of the sooial
transformation of the West;
' If the reader Woqld see a picture
of the representative Jtiansan Popu
list, let him examine the family por
traits of the Ohio farmer in the mid
die of this century. In a word, the
Populist is the Amerioan farmer who
has kept in advance of the : economio
and social transformations that have
overtaken those who remained behind.
While, doubtlss, investigation into
the ancentry of the Populists and
silver men who came to the prairies
from the old Northwest would show
some proportion of Southern origin,
yet the center of discontent seems to
have been among the men of the New
England and western New Jtork oar-
rent. If New Eogland looks with
care at these men, she may recognize
in them the familiar lineaments of
the embattled farmers who fired the
shot heard round the world. The
continuous' ndvanne of this pioneer
stock from New England has pre
served for us the older type of th
pioneer of frontier New England. I
do not overlook the powerful trans
forming influences of the wilderness
operating on this stock ever since it
left the earlier frontier farms to fol
low np the valleys of western Con
necticut. Massachusetts, and Ver
mont, into western New York, and
Ohio, into Iowa, and out to the arid

Ihe other truth, also, that these west
ward immigrants, keeping lor gener
ations iu advance of the transforming
industrial aud social foroes that have
wrought so vast a revolution in the
older regions of the East which they
left, oonld not but preserve important
aspects 01 the older farmer type, la
the arid West these pioneers have
ha.tea and nave turned to precoive -an
altered nation and changed sooial
ideals. ; They see the sharp contrast
between their, traditional idea of
America, as the land of opportunity,
ths land of the self-made man, free
from class distinctions and from the
power' of wealth, and the existing
America, so nnlike the earlier ideal.

the days of Shave's rebellion, paper

these New England farmers hated
lawyers and capitalists. 'I would not
trust them,' said Abraham White, ia
the ratification convention of Massa
chusetts, in 1788, 'tho every one of
them should be a Moses.' 'These
lawyers,' cried Amos Singletary, 'and

man today, while it is sweet mnsio in .

him ponder the utterances of these,
frontier farmers in the days of the.
Revolution; and if he is still doubtful
of this spiritual kinship, let him read!
the words of the levelers and sectar
ies of Cromwell's army. . ; . .
. "Looking at the Northwest aa a
whole, one sees that, in the character
of its industries and in the elements
of its population, it is identified on
the east with , the zone of States in
cluding the middle region and New
Eogland. Cotton culture and the
negro make a clear line of division
between the old Northwest and the
South.: And yet in important bis- ;
