Such legislation by CoDjjress as will
promote the organization aud training
of the militia as a State organization
until it is called for by the Federal
Government lor actual service will be
a policy confOnant with Democratic
principle according with the Demo
cratic policy ofoppoition to standing
armies The principle that a well
regulated militia is the only safe re
liaoce of a free people and that a
standing army is hostile to the genius
of Republican government is thor
oughly Uetnooratic i nereioro we
approve of the proposed consideration
ol ther subject by Jotigress It may
be well for the Democratic rnsjority to
consider it now with a view lo any
possible unfavorable turn in political
affairs While we regard an augmen
tatioo of Republican influence io the
Government a most improbable result
it is vet well alwavs to provide again t
ooihiliiies In the consideration of
thir question the Republican party
could make the organization of the
militia as deadly a blow ns could he
truck in the direction of centralization
A national militia such as the Rf pub
lican party would provide would be
only second to the standing army as a
part of the scheme of centralization
holdiog as thpy would provide not
only all supplie but all commissions
from the central power With the eu
lirc organization and tho officering of
the militia in the hands of the States
it would be the militia of a republic and
of a federal government belonging to
the States and subject to their entire
control until such umi as it was called
out by the Federal government for
actual service American
