12 ] Conservative * THE SEPTEMBER ATLANTIC. The political pupers in the September Atlantic are strong and varied. Thomas Nelson Page opens the number with a Virginian view-clearly and calmly stated of The Southern People and Recon struction ; describing the Southern situ ation before the war and rehearsing the events that have succeeded it , reaching the conclusion : "That intelligence , virtue , and force of character will eventually rule , is as certain in the states of the South as it is elsewhere ; and everywhere it is as cer tain as the operation of the law of gravi tation. " Charles A. Conant contributes The Future of Political Parties , believing that the original missions of our present parties are practically accomplished , and foreseeing the rise of now parties on the lines of strong centralization and na tional greatness on the one hand , and the defense of ( he rights of the people and the equality of the individual on the other. An Emersonian Democrat discusses The Reaction of the Democracy , demon strating and asserting the power of the people for good when properly purified and purged of grossuess. John Muir describes Hunting Big Red woods the wonders and uses of the great Sequoia Forests of California. A paper by the late W. J. Stillmau develops his Theory of Beauty , and Rol- liu Lyude Hartt describes vividly and picturesquely The City at Night ( Buf falo ) , before the opening of the Exposi tion , towards which all eyes are now turned. Henry Austin Clapp continues his de lightful Reminiscences ; he devotes large space to the history and accomplish ments of the late William Warren , who was for so many years superominout on the Boston stage , and among other crit ical verdicts ho designates Charlotte Cushman as the one only great Ameri can actress. Frances Duncan treats of Japanese Plants in American Gardens , their beau ties and adaptivoness for American cul tivation. Miss Johnston's Audrey continues with ever increasing power and interest. Alice Brown , W. R. Lighten , and Vir ginia W. Cloud contribute fresh and en tertaining stories ; and Edith Whartou , Richard Burton , and others contribute poems. The Contributors' Club is , as always , timely , entertaining , and instructive.
