SECTIONALISM GIVING WAY.
All the speeches at the Atlanta
peace jubilee express a national senti
ment and feeling of fraternity re
gardless of state lines such as the
country never witnessed before on
the same scale. The memory of few
living persons reaches back to a time
when sectional influences in the
country were not at work. More
than forty years ago the spirit of
division became acute and one ot the
most desperate and destructive wars
of history followed. For a time after
that tremendous conflict the South
took but a limited interest in public
affairs. When its political activities
revived, the old sectional lines were
distinctly drawn, and south and north
still confronted each other in con
gress and in general elections. But
time has gradually softened old
causes of unpleasantness. Many in
truth were superficial. Nothing more
was ueeded to clear them away than
some event, calculated to arouse
American patriotism wherever it
existed. A foreign war brought from
every state in the union the same re
sponse of courage and devotion.
More than they realized the people of
all the states had drawn nearer each
other in the sense of nationality. The
Atlanta love feast is but one of
several demonstrations of the fact.
There is no reason why the old
lines of past differences and dissen
sions should be perpetuated in our
politics. They serve no good pur
pose and do not fit existing condi
tions. The country would be bene
fited by a larger share in public af
fairs of the strong men of the south.
On leading questions they are by no
means all ot one opinion. Yet the
bonds of sectionalism hitherto have
proved stronger than others. One
evil entailed by clinging to past ideas
is the marked decline in the south of
active participation in politics. The
whole vote in Mississippi, Louisana
or Arkansas in the November elec
tion was smaller than in a single con
gressional district in St. Louis. A
governor was elected in South Caro
lina by an aggregate vote smaller than
was cast in a third of the St. Louis
wards. Again the south is threatened
with abstention in politics, and this is
not good for itself. A Democratic
paper in Richmond remarks: "We
believe that one of the greatest needs
In the south today is a strong minor-
. ity party, and there would be such a
party but for the peculiar conditions.'
What these are bhould awaken south
Gen. Wheeler, in a speech at
Atlanta, mentioned a fact that is often
overlooked. He said the records of
the civil war show that "the people
of the slaveholding states were al
most equally divided, those who
fought under the stars and stripes of
the union being fully equal in num
ber to those who arrayed themselves
under the 6tars and bars of the con
federacy." This helps to explain
the small vote in the south. An
enormous number of southern citi
zens are evidently dissatisfied with
the present political action based
upon sectional traditions. In a
national matter, like the war with
Spain, the south stands ready to per
form its full duty and easily supplies
men of brains and character to as
sume a due place in the leadership.
But, politically, it has not been living
in the present, not sustaining the part
for which it is qualified by ability and
strong American qualities. It cer.
Two Pointed Questions Answered
What is the use of making a better
article than yonr competitor it you can
not get a better price for it? .
Ans. As there is no difference in the
price the public will buy only the better,
so that while our profits may be smaller
on a single scale they will be much
greater in the aggregate.
How can you get the public to know
yonr make is the best?
If both articles are brought prominent
ly before the public both are certain to
be tried and the public will very quickly
pass judgment on them and use only the
