STAR OF POLITICAL EMPIRE.
The selection of the meeting-places for
the national convention of ' 'ie reat par
ties n the aat score of years shows,
eays the Globe Democrat, the extent to
which the political center of gravity has
been shifted to the westward since the
first half of the cvntury. In the earlier
days the choice f part candidates was,
of course, ma.le at points in the Atlantic
seaboard statee. That was the region
where the mass of the population re
sided. - The men and the influences
which dictated the choice of parties all
lived on the sunriee side of the Alle
ghenies. The first national delegate
conventions ever held by any of the
parties, those which nominated can'di
- dates for the canvass of 1832, net in Bal
timore. In that city for that campaign,
Clay was nominated by the national Re
publicans (the predecessors of the Whigs)
and Jackson by the Democrats. The
Democrats met there in every campaign
along to 1856. The only places in which
the Whigs ever held their national
gatherings were Baltimore, Ilarrisburg
AVhcn, in 1856, the Democrats held
their national convention in Cincinnati
tLe first formal recognition was made by
a leading party oi the greit and growing
weight of theAVcst in the political frci'e.
The power of the Democracy was in the
agricultural regions, and there was a
close partisan tie between the wheat and
corn raising West and the cotton and
tobacco raising South, which was quickly
cut, however, when the slavery exten
sion madness seized the Democratic
leaders. .The selection of a Western
town for the meeting-place of the con
vention of 1856 was good politics for the
Democrats in that crisis, for the Kaneas
. Nebraska folly of 1854 put most of the
western states in revolt against the De
mocracy. Unquestionably the loss of
the West meant ruin to the Democracy,
and one of the ways to -hang on to it, at
" least tor the time, was to hold a national
convention in its principal city. Since
1856 the Democrats several times met in
tho West. In 1S64, 18S4 and 1892 their
conventions were held in Chicago, in
1880 in Cincinnati, and in 1876 and 1888
in St. Louis.
Naturally most of the Republican con
ventions have been held in the western
spates. In the West earlier than in the
East the Republican party first began to
tike shape. In the little town of Ripon,
Wis., the earliest' movement leading to
the lormation of the Republican party
was made. This was two or three
months before Kansas was thrown open
to elavery and the Missouri cam promise
repealed by the act of May 31, 1854, but
when that measure was before congress
and its passage inevitable. Michigan,
on July 7 of that year, held the first
state convention which ever formally.
adopted the Republican party name.
Of course an exception is made in the
case of Jefferson's Democratic-Republican
party of 1793-1829, which was a to
tally different sort of an organization.
Of the ten Republican national conven
tions already held all but three those
of 1856 and 1872 (Philadelphia) and of
1864 (Baltimore) met in the western
states. Chicago had those of I860, 1868,
1880, 1884 and 1888, Cincinnati had that
of 1876, Minneapolis that of 1892, and St.
Louis will hold that of 1896. With both
of the great parties westward the course
of empire takes its way.
Whether or not, according to the mili
. tary cod, General Miles has acted
wisely in discussing our military strength
. or weakness, he has done good in draw
ing attention to those very points. Con
gress can do no more wise or popular
thing than providing for an adequate
system of coast defenses, and for the en
larging 'and strengthening of our army
and navy. . The first step in this direc
tion will be the passing of a bill which
will provide a greater revenue. The ne
cessity of a protective tariff is being
seen for more reasons than one, and the
talk for free trade will grow less as the
intelligence and experience of the peo
In 1890, the" eecand year of Harr'sn'd
administration, the products of oar man
ufactures amounted to '$9,370,1 07 ,624.
In 1S94. the second year of the Cleve
land regime, they amounted to $5,247, -260,269;
excess for Harrison, $4,122,847,
355. This is but the story of one year.
The tale is made still more impressive
by the figures of the other years.
FROM A NEIGHBORING COUNTY
Klickitat Agriculturist: Some of onr
country exchanges are discussing the
changes made in the game laws at the
last session of the legislature. We
realiy.don't ee the reason. ..There is al
ways a "new": game law ?r at !iat
changes. Every legislature, since the
days of Gov. Stevens, has felt called npon
to take a hand in the matter, and it has
been asserted that there were pereons
who. have, at times understood what the
"game law" was. Of course there is al
ways a new gams law. And if those
who don't like it we infer from the tone
of diecussion that some people don't
will wait, the next legislature will change
it, and then we ehall have another
"game law." The game law is intended
for the express benefit of people who
stay at home and never hunt nor fish.
They are the only ones who observe its
Klickitat Republican: By an exam
ination of the map of the state of Wash
ington, the fact may be ascertained, the
Cowlitz pass is many miles northeast of
Goldendaie and almost on a straight line
from Taconia to North Yakima. Before
this road could get out of the range of
mountains to properly find a maximum
grade to reach Goldendaie it would be
essential to run down the Natchez river
to North Yakima city. From there in
reaching Wallula it is very probable the
line would pass throncrh the great Horse
Heaven country in Klickitat, and miss
Goldendaie fifty miles at least. The
only hope of railway connection for
Klickitat wheal fields and Goldendaie
seems by a branch line from North Yak
ima city or from some point on the Co
lumbia river; We" believe The 'Dalles
and North Yakima will join hands in the
coming year and ask Goldendaie, "Push
the good thing along."
