THE BLUE AND THE GRAY
Elsewhere in this paper, we
print the picture of the beautiful
monument to be erected in Fitz
gerald, Ga., to the Blue and the
Gray, commemorating the great
peace of our re-united country.
We have secured it especially for
our readers. It is fitting that
such a monument be erected, and
it is extremely gratifying that it
is a Southern product. The kind
ly feeling which inspired it and
which it typifies, will be generous
ly responded to by the North.
We have long had this idea in
our minds,' only we had located it
in our thoughts and plans at an
other point, but along somewhat
different lines. We believe that
there should be erected an im
mense bridge across the Ohio
river between Cincinnati and Cov
ington, spanning the old Mason
and Dixon's Line, resting upon
four great columns, one each of
which should be built by the
North, South, Easl and West
Let this beautiful structure be
typical of the re-united Govern
ment, supported equally by the
East, West, North and South. In
the center of the stream Uf prac
ticable), there should be a beauti
ful column rising high above the
superstructure qf this bridge, sur
mounted by the Dove of Peace.
The asperities of war have been
forgotten, its wounds healed and
our country ife re-united in a com
mon purpose. The water courses,
the steel rails of transcontinental
railroads, commerce, the tele
phone, the telegraph, and the
daily mail, has made us one great
family. Dan Cupid, too, has
played his part, uniting the hearts
of the North and South and fill
ing them with a boundless love.
There is no East, no West, no
North, no South;

confess that we are at a loss to

evident That he is a state right

conclusion of his effort he could

That the Senate ot the United
States would waste its time in
allowing a discussion on the con
stitutionality of the bill, is ex
plained by the fact that it must

senator to make an ass of himself
at any time or for all the time as

In making the constitution, the
people delegated certain rights to
the states, certain rights to the
federal government and retained
all others to themselves not spe
cially delegated. The right to
regulate commerce was one of
the rights delegated to congress
and thereby prohibited to the
states. Congress has power to
regulate commerce between the
states by express words of the
constitution. Sec. 8 of Article 1
says, "The Congress shall have
power to regulate commerce
among the several states." One
form of regulation is by prohibit
ing a thing altogefher. But if
this should appear far fetched.
then the right to prohibit ship
ments altogether, remains in the
sovereign power of the people,
who by their representatives in
congress can prohibit the ship
ment of liquors entirely or in any
territory it may deem expedient
That the congress has limited the
right to that territory wherein
the states have first acted and
passed local option laws, does
not invalidate the law commonly
called the Webb bill. But we
will see what the President does
with the bill. He is a great law
yer. He goes, when his term
ends, to one of the great institu
tions of learning and he must put
the political game behind him.
President Wilson will be untrue
to himself and recreant to the
cause of democracy, if he opposes
the bill now pending in Congress
to limit the presidential term to
one term. The Democratic plat
form adopted at Baltimore stood
unequivocally for this, and pledg
ed Wilson to a single term. That
our readers may know that we
are right we quote the platform
"We favor a single presidential term
and to that end urge the adoption of
an amendment to the Constitution,
making the President of the United
States ineligible for re-election, and
we pledge the candidate of this con
vention to this principle."
It is said that Governor Beck
ham, who is now a candidate for
the office of United States Sena
tor from Kentucky, was the
author of this provision of the
platform. It matters not who
wrote it it is in the platform, and
Governor Wilson accepted the
platform and thereby adopted
this pledge for himself and the
The Democratic party must re
deem its pledges. The President
of the United States must keep
his pledge to the people. The
Democratic representatives in
Congress must be true to the
pledges of the Democratic party.
We believe that the States will
refuse the amendment, but never
theless, they should be given the
opportunity to vote on it

silence in reference to the cabinet

to his confidence. He may be
right However, the people whom
he serves think otherwise.
