is, that he goes into olliee with the
good will of all the people and all tl

is a partisan in politics, but not offen
sively so. He is broad enough in his
views to steer clear of snags and pit
falls, lie walks circumspectly in the
round of his daily life, and though com

from every part of the country he does
not make any enemies. Present ap

The Detroit Tribune thinks the U
S. should occupy this entire continent
from the North Polo to the Isthmus,
and that some day it will. We have
no doubt of it. All the region around
the Pole would furnish us with ice that
we arc likely to need. No house is
large enough for two families, and there
is not room enough on the North Am
erican continent for several nations.
Let us consolidate, have one President
and one Congress and a place to colo

of all kinds w here they can cool off.

Senator Morrill discusses the ques
tion of the annexation of Canada in
the January Forum. This subject is
of interest to Vermonters both on ac
count of the writer and theme. He
gives a review of the agitation of the
subject from colonial times, discusses,
commercial union, but holds that it is
unconstitutional, thinks that political
union should be sought but that Cana
da should seek it. This he regards as
inevitable. He points out some disad
vantages of admitting a number of
states-with British political ideas, and
the possible European complications.
The Panama Canal Co. has collaps
ed beyond hope of recovery. Now at
tention will be turned to the Nicaragua
route. This is about 300 miles north
east. The latter route is about 100
miles longer than the former, but about
140 miles of it are through navigable
waters, and there are no difficulties on
the remainder of the line that the en
gineers cannot easily overcome. The
cost of the canal is estimated at ? j0,-
000,000 and it is thought that it can
be built in six years. The work of
construction, it is said, will commence
next spring under the direction of the
Maritime Canal Co., incorporated by
the legislature of Vermont at its recent
session. The distance saved by pass
ing th-ough it is 8,000 miles which is
quite an item in sailing from New York
to Puget Sound. This canal will be
built by an American company and

Dec. 23rd was a day with a singular
record of crime and disaster. Two
men killed their wives and then suicid
ed. A third killed himself because of a
deficit in his accounts, and a fourth did
the same thing after swindling a farm
er out of a large sum oi money. Two
railroad t-ains were thrown from the
track and several seriously and some
fatally injured. A powder explosion
in one place and a boiler explosion in
another, and the blowing up of three
nitro-glycerine magazines in another
caused the destruction of much proper
ty and injured many people. Worst
of all was the burning of a steamer on
the Mississippi near New Orleans in
which thirty or forty lives were lost.
It is not often that such a list can be
made up for a single day. Does this
indicate an advance in our civilization?
in our national polities. It assumes a
form different now from any previous
form. Thenegioes are increasing rap
idly, ami now that they have a part in
politics, which they are disposed to use
against the dominant political sentiment
of the whiles they are not regarded
with the same affection as when valued
in dollars and cents. llesides, there
are indications that the Southern polit
ieul leaders fear that the incoming ad
ministration means business and that
they cannot continue to "chouse" him
out of his political rights either by vio
lence or fraud. There are two move
nients going on in different parts of the
South designed to affect the relative
position of the w hite and black races.
These may not be widely extended and
they may he only spasmodic, and yet
now they are indicativeof certain states
of feeling that prevail in certain sections
of that wide region. One of these
movements looks to the innniirralioii of
w hites so that the white race can main
tain its ascendency by force of I um
bers. A New Orleans paper urges
this immigration scheme. I-et us have
white men from Bny source, from the
North or from Europe, and fill up the
country and crowd back the colored
race. Texas is referred to as a state
in which this has been partially car
ried out. It is said that in all the coun
ties exeept those bordering on Louisia
na the incoming of the whites hits kept
the colored vote iu a minority. The
question is asked, why may not a simi
lar policy carried through the entire
South produce corresponding results.
The theory is good, but to make it a
practical success white iinmi'rration
most be rapid enough Jo overbalance
negro growth. We apprehend that
this will require a much more rapid
movement of population in the direction
of the SoutU than has heretofore taken
place. Again, white men moving into
the South must be met in a different
spirit from that which has been preva
lent in the past. Northern men will
not make homes iu the South to any
great extent until they can enjoy the
same freedom of thought and speech
that is permitted to them here. En
joying these, their political alliliations
would be with the colored people rath
er than with the whites. It may be
the end desired would thus be lost. We
know of only one way for the whites of
the South to do, and that is to deal in
a just and honorable manner by all
classes. No schemes will work well
for a long time that are founded upon
injustice. It is because of a narrow
minded, vicious policy that the South
has suffered in the past. She has stood
in her own light, she has retarded her
own growth, and whatever prosperity
has come to her has been forced upon
her. Southern whites must cease to
devise schemes that discriminate against
the colored race so long as whites and
blacks are equal under the constitution.
If in any of these states the blacks out
vote the whites then that state, in
certain sense must pass under a black
man's government and the whites must
submit, just as in New York or Bos
ton combinations in politics bring the
Irish clement to the frout and the na
tive-born are ruled by the Irish. Keep
race questions out of politics and let
white and black alike seek the common
good. The other movement looks to
the emigration of the colored people.
This has been undertaken on several
occasions but has met w ith only limit
ed success. The movement now is on
the Atlantic coast and towards the
north-east. A gentleman from the
South has recently conducted two hun
dred negroes or more from North Car
olina and located them in New Jersey.
This is called just a beginning. This
is not undertaken for the accommoda
tion of the whites but for the relief of
the blacks. Whatev. r may be said of
the condition of the blacks in the South
generally, the gentleman who brings
these negroes north tells a pitiful story
of their condition in the section from
folded one-half its length. The nulli
fying of their votes is but the beginning
of outrages. They are ostracized so
cially. Every right they enjoy is con
ceded grudgingly. They are kept down
iu every way that ingenious ami vicious
white men can devise. There is not so
much violence as formerly but there is
much cruelty. Colored meu are har
assed, annoyed, defrauded and in some
respects suffer more than while iu bond
age. But it seems to us that emigra
tion is a doubtful remedy. The north
ern climate is not adapted to the negro.
S.mie come here and thrive, but it
would be necessary to chatiire habits
that have coutinued through generations
to render Ihein prosperous iu their new
environments. The movement is not
a wise one. The only sound policy for
the South and tor the country is to treat
the negro so that he will be willing to
remain where he is. Perhaps the South
will some day learn this lesson.
The Portland Orcgoniin puts the
thing very neatly, when it says : "The
reason why it would not be good poli.
tics to make Blaine secretary of state
is simply that the act would make all
tlio opponents and enemies of Iiluine
opponents and enemies, or at least se
vere and unfriendly critics, of the administration."
