tajrna i? never a grateful or timnk
worthy task, nnd wheh men are soro
and exhauated from the etraln ot ap

probing process Is especlally palnful.
Uepeated knockd,nwns should, how
ever, lmpart some informatlon. for
only tho unwlso bumps hls head al?
waya In the same placo. In a spirit
of earnest sytnpathy, therefore, with
the Democratlc party, belleving ln its
prlnciplea ??nd dealrlng Its contlnuod
cxlstence as nn absolutely easentlal
factor ln our natlonal llfe, The TlmeB
Dlspatch venturos aoma observatloua
ln the llght of past experience.
On the flnal balance aheet whlch
the publlc eubconaciously keeps Wlth
the great partlei there aro many lm
portant Items to the credit of Demo?
cracy.
The Democratlc party hns preserved
and vitallzed the prlnciple of State's
rlghts; the Democratlc party haa stood
for local aelf-governmont againat
pvorgrown bureaucracy.
The Democratlc party haa taught
fcnd practiced economy ln the natlonal
admlnlatratlon.
The Democratlc party has unfalllngly
aupported the princlple of tariff for
revenue, and fought tho practlce of
protection for favored lndustrlca.
The Domocratlc party, barrlng its
two melancholy lapses In 1SD8 and
1900, has been the hlstoric party and
aole guardlan of hard money and aound
banking.
The Democratlc party, scornlng all
trattorous alllances betweon the gov?
ernment an<3 favor-seoktng lndlvlduala,
has alone and at all tlmcs stood for
the enforcement ln letter and ln apirit
of the equallty of all mon befora the
law.
The Democratlc party has demanded
publlcity for campaign contrlbutlons,
and thereby threw tho welght of a
great organlzatlon ln favor of honest
>lectioti8 and agalnst that corrupt bar
galning for leglslation whlch has con
eistently scandallzcd the Republlcan
admlnlatratlon.
The Democratlc party has offdred a
real solution to the problem of Juat
taxatlon by proposlng an tncotno tax,
tvhlch would fall heavlest where lt
could most easlly be borne.
For auch rt-asons, The Tlmes-Dla?
patch and many othera belleve that as
the reposltory of these prlnciplea and
the aole effectlve check on tho pornl
cloua tendencics of Republlcanism, tho
Democratlc party, under somo name,
will necessarjr'f ji'ersjst and contlnue
to serve the -country, that gave it blrth.
Why, then. has tho Democratlc party,
for four successive electlons, falled to
. command enough votes to put it ln
power? Burely not because u plural?
lty of the votera of the United States
Inherently prefer the Republican
party. Far from it.

Lhe Independonts evorywhero, can de
?troy tho value of the Democratic

The Demoerats aro the postulants,
tho oppositlon, the critics, the guard
lana of tho old Ideale of slmpler days;
anrl that ls the service that party has
rendored thls country, even ln ita
hours of defeat.
It is a well cstabllshod luw of po- ;
lltlcal blstory that moet great refortna j

whlch demanda them ln the Urat ln-,

nowever, that if the men who mako

Wlth regard to hls parenta, the

With regard to tho controversy now
n progreaa ln the ranks of the Jockey

lomo of Ita own ln London, whlch It
locs not now possess, betng dapendenti
ipon tho hospltaiity of the Turf Club,
uid usually holdlng Its meetings at tho

ts membera, lt may ho of Interest tn
:iill attentlon to the fact that Klng
_dward is neither the patron nor tho
iresldent of this club, but a mere ordl
uiry member. In othcr clubs 10 whlch
te belonga, lncluding tho Royal Yacht
?quadron, ho flgurcs as patron or as
Dresldent. But as far as the Jockey
21ub ls concerned, ho ls in the runks,
iuat llke the other royal membera
.hereof. Thero ls, In fact, no presldent
)f tlio club, tho powers and duties of
iresldent, aa well aa the exocutlvo au
horlty of the club, bolng vestod In tho
landa of tho three stewarda, who are
ilected every year, nnd who constitute
:he most powerful body on the Brit
sh turf. and the supremo trlbunal in
Snglish raclng matters, thero belng no
tppeal from their decisions.
Of all Klng Edward'a clubs, tho

10 has retalncd any intlmate connectlon
*lnce hls acdesslon to the throne. Ho
s never seen any more at the Marl
sorough, whlch he hlmaelf founded for
lis own uso and for that of his frlends.
ind during tho last Cowes week, he only
snee put ln an appearance at the club
houso of the Royal Yacht Squadron.
Dne of the prlnclples of club Hfe Ia
:hat all membera are thiioretlcally
3qual, enjoylng the Bame rlghts, and
is thla Is not altogether compatlble
wlth soverelgnty, the Klng wlthdrew

sver, remalns tho patron of tho old
3arrlck Club in London, whlch he Joln
sd Just forty-one years ago.
Wllliam Carnpbell's promotion as
Lord Skerrington to the bonch of the
Court of Sesslon at Edlnburgh, consti
tuting the flrst caso of tho nomlnatlon
of a Roman Cathollc to the Supremo
Court of Scotland aince tho daya of tho
fieformatlon, serves to call attentlon to
Uio remalnlng legal dlaabllltles to whlch
membera of his church aro aubjected in
Qreat Brltaln. lt may bo of Interest to
enumerate them. Thus, thero are only
two offices whlch cannot bo held by
Cathollcs, namely, that of the lord high
chancellor of England and of the lord
lietltenant of Ireiand. Emlnent legal
authorltlea have, however, Insisted that
tl re waa no legal Impedlment. stin.
dstbne consldered tho obstacles suf
flclently serious to cause him to ro
fraln from promoting tho late Lord
Rusaell of Killoween, better known In
this country as Slr Charles Rusaell, to
the woolsack.
Then, Roman Cathoitcs cannot noml
nate tho rectora to the Angllcan
churches of whlch they liappen to be
patrons by right of Inheritance or
purchase. When a man bullds and eu
dows a church of the establlahed
Church of England, he retains for him
self and hla helra the riglit of nominat
iiig the rector of tho church. In many
lnstances thla rlght of patronage ls
sold wlth the estate on which the
church in questlon ls situated, or even
BOparately. Some peera and terrltorlal
magnatea aro patrons of no less than
a score ot churches, that la to say, they
have the right and duty of appolntlng
the roctors of all theao churches. No
legal objection exlsts to a patron who
Is a Jew, auch as Lord Rothschild, Lord
Wandsworth and Lord Mlchclham; a
professed Buddhlst, such as tho Earl
Mexborough; an equally devputMoalom,
Buoh as the late Lord Btanley of Alder
loy, or a det lared atheist, llke tho late
Marquis of Queensbdrry, assumlng the
responslbllity of selecting tho clergy
inau who ts to be rector of the church,
and charged os such wlth the spirltual
welfaro of Its numerous congregatlon,
ln a posslbly crowded parlsh. But 11
Cathollc ls barred from the rlght of
presentatlon, and if ho inhorits the
rlght Of patronage, ho is dobarrod from
exerclsing tho latter, whlch ia asaumed
until his death by tho lord high ohan
oellor in the name of the crown. The
Marquis ot Rlpon, too, whon ho became
o convert to < 'athollclsm, forfetted, ipsc
fncto, all his rlghts of eocleBlaatlcal
patronage, which havo been adminlstor
ed Blnce, no! by his only son r.nd helr,
bul by the crown.
Another legal dlsablllty is thls: thal
a Roman Cathollc ln holy orders can
not slt In lhe House Q$ Cotnmons, But.
of course, he <-annot be kept out of the
House of Lords, and the late Lord Pctrt
furnlshed an illustration of a man who
occupylug tho rank of prolato of the
Roman Cathollc Church, snt and voted
