Tin: Courier-Journal confidently looks
to see the republican paity break down
in its attempt to govern tin' country. It
is still a war party. It is not for national
uses, or for a state of pence. Its animating
spark is a malign spirit of domination
caught from tho dying brands of
hectional triumph of which it was the
luckv accident. Its cohesive principle is
n system of legalized robbery and
born of the war, which appeals to
organized capital, and the pledge of a J
Hystem of agrarian pillage, given to an (
army of camp-followers, with whom if
proposes to dgraeo the American sol-
dier's roll of honor, the pension list. It!
has no fixed ideas of convictions, but is '
merely an aggregation of all that is spu
rious' and fanciful in morals, of all that
is false and vicious in economics, of all
that is time-serving and corrupt in methods.
It is, where it is best, a maudlin
hentimentalist, and, where it is worst,
an adventurer and n sharper, trading
upon the passions of such fools as it is
able to bamboozle, buy or bully. It can
not last. It may wreck the country; but
it will surely wreck itself.
TiiEiiF.isa growing feeling of distrust
for tho system of electors, since the popular
majority is frequently ignored and
the minority candidate declared president,
but the I'nnners of our Federal
constitution were wise and far-seeing
men and in providing for tho electoral
college were governed by three reaons.
First, it would give equality and co
equality to the several States Second, '
it would insure perpetually "such equal-1
itvand coH'iuality anil iiroerve State t
autonomy. Third, it would insure the
country a presiilent wlio was
er n felon who had been guilty of j
crime after the people bad voted for
tors, nor demented, if properly carried !
out. Voting for a president and vice-
president direct would be centralizing,
and in a few vears local self-government
would be ignored. .It would revolution-,
i.. ,mr suit.! t.oliticul iiinehiiierv and the
Federal constitution itself. !

Tin: Court of Appeals has rendensl a
decision atlirming tlio action of tho low
er court setting aside a fraudulent sale
made by tho sweet-scented scrub, Dr.
Godfrey Hunter, who now misrepresents
theJM district in Congress. It seems
that the doctor, who had procureda pension
for the widow of a dead soldier, got
most of it himself by selling her l;l acres
of land for$KK) that were not worth $l.r0,
she relying on his honor and judgment
e'ltiielv. The decision is pretty severe
on Hunter, but that won't hurt him with
his party. At least that party has never
refused to honor another of its inembeis j
whose actions were st verely criticized by j
the same court a few years ago. I
Tin: raving lire-eater of the Cincinnati
is giving liimsolf
much concern over tlio Southern question.
There is no .Southern question
that needs Federal interference and any
attempt made by the republicans to open
up questions long ago settled there, by
resorting to the methods that prevailed
after the war, will result disa.storously.
The fcouthern people will not permit a ,
return to rule, even if they '
