The overwhelming defeat of the late
Liberal party, seeim not to have di
spirited It entirely, ranch less killed
it. It bus life enough lea to begin to )ng implement. Hundreds of thous
ralk about gathering up Its broken i ;,nd Of dollars are sent nut of the State
forces foT afresh campaign. It still
assumes to lie the party of 'Teforni."
ind it efforts at reorganization will
lie exerted on that line.
Tt will he well in such an effort, to
forecast with prudential care. To be
over haty. U never wle. Looking
before leaping may save the humilia
tion and peril of lighting in a ditch.
Experience lesson arc safe to ponder.
They are good to guide by. A reform
party mnt l wM before It can live
comfortably and flourish. A party
cannot be formed and maintained
successfully on trifling Issues, neither
van it subsist on passion alone. Some
thing more than abuse something
more than hatred and malice and
jealousy must prevail. The party In
Kwer must be guilty of some conspic
uous error, or giant wrong, before a
reform party can maintain its assump
tion. The must be specified clearly
that people may see them. Opiosi
tion for its own sake, under the ntme
of "reform." is 'imply a humbug.
The position of the Liberals in the
late campaign was not In opposition
to the rrtnciiJf of the Republican
party, but In opposition to President
Grant . They were not arrayed against
the Republican party for any great
mffi which it had done for many of
the Republican leaders among the
Liberals, in fact the principal leaders,
assisted by pen and tongue H framing,
passing ami carrying into effect almost
if not quite every leading measure of
the party they were pitted against It
because they desired to get rid of a
President, whom their selfishness
could not control, nor tnelr venality
corrupt. With the hlgtwwundltig
name of "Reformers," a lot of thwart
ed politicians, chronic grumblers, pro
fessional fault finders, sore-heads,
bullions and scabs of the. most rotten
character, lead off and conducted a
political campaign, with nothing upon
which to base its claim to so high a
character, except personal giimnccs
a ml animosities. Their platform prin
ciple were the same substantially as
Those of tlte Republican party, and ;
hence their pretention to reformers j
imtli InenisVtent and tale. No i
Mtoh party will ever succeed where
riic people are intelligent and virtuous.
Personal grievances will never be en

moral reliction ot trying 1 0 palm off ,
