FEBRUARY 2C. 1885
PAST AXD PItESENT.
Next "Wednesday the Republican
party goes out of power, and a Demo
cratic president will be inaugurated.
In any oilier nation, the relinquishing
of possession by a political party of
the reins of government after twenty
four years of uninterrupted occupa
tion would raise a tumult. But
great though the change may be, the
occurrence will have no more signifi
cance than any other prominent event
of the year. Everything will go right
along as before. The Democratic
newspapers, will, however, find it
novel to defend the administration,
for, for neaily a quarter of a century
they have been pitching into the way
that imtioiml :lFtirs were adminis
torod. In thosrfine manner the Re
publican ncH-fcprtjiers will find them
selves no loiiser in the position of
advocates, apologist, or defenders,
and instead of endorsing they will
decry and with hostility inveigh
against the acu of the chief execu
tive. Fortunately Ijr our country and
bur common prosperity, the fight will
be oonfiuctl to t nisau organs. The
groat Uujly oi t'l ikvvIo vill be en
grossed iu !v ..w pursuits and
nothing short of ;. iLigranl violation
of popular rights., or a gross infringe
ment of popular liberties, will arouse
more than passing :-omuiont.
The American people reooguize the
necessity of lo great political par
ties. 0 ir is ag-7drnment of ch jks
and balance; both parlies will bear
watching, and when they are, as at
prasent, equally divided, neither party
can, as a matter of policy, afford to
make any mistake. It was the "smart"
utterance of an educated fool in New
York city that lost Blaine the presi
dency, and it is here instanced simply
to illustrate how trivial tho causes
that sway the popular balance.
So, when next Wednesday amid the
pomp befitting the occasion, Mr.
Olcvoland is inaugurated as the XXII
president of the United States, it is
not as the leader of an overwhelming
force, nor the opponent of a beaten
few that he lakes his high seat, but
as the chief magistrate of a great na
tion, the foremost on the planet, a na
tion that is divided in almost exact
equality into two great parties, and
which has as the foundation of tho
principles of both parlies, a love of
liberty and free institutions.
The telegraph says that President
elect Cleveland goes to Washington
next Monday. His journey will oc
casion a suggestive contrast.
Just twenty-four yeirs ago a presi -dent-elect
went to Washington. He
went in disguise, surrounded by a few
faithful friends, at dead of night, in
the shadow of death, his life threat
ened. Next Monday Mr. Cleveland will
go in a style befitting the high office
of which he takes possession. In the
broad glare of day, with booming
cannon, and triumphal arches, and
floral decorations he will ride to the
national capital surrounded by
frionds and admirers, and who is
there, be he Republican or Democrat,
who shall refuse to honor him whom
tho people of the United Suites have
seated in the White House! It is
right that Grover Cleveland should
ride to Washington in stateliest style
and it is proper that he should be
cheered and welc-jmed as he pro
gresses from ci y to city. He is to
bo our pre-ji-Jent, the president of the
United States., the leader of the isa
iion, and not of a iUetioe, nor a party.
But how was it twenty-fonr years
ngo, when Aorahaai Lincoln stole
through Baltimore like a hunted an
imal, wrapped iu a clunk ami a Scotch
cap on hi& head? What crime had
he committed? None. He had been
elected presiJcl for ilie four years
then succ 'i'inir, just as Grover
Cleveland has :w.i chosen to that
office for the four years now ensuing,
except that Lincoln's plurality was
over 491,009 and bis majority of tho
electors 57, -while Cleveland had a
plurality of only 23.000 and an elec
toral majority of only 37 and 35 of
these 37 electoral votes were obtained
on a plurality of 1,149 in New York.
There wano gratia 1 fjr disputing
the validity of Mr. Lincoln's electien:
and the figures show that he was
more surely the choice of the Amer
ican people than can be claimed in
the case ol Mr. Cleveland. Abraham
Lincoln's o.iiy crime was that ho was
theR9pablican president-elect. How
far off it all seems now!
It is an additional coincidence that
after Lincoln's election the Demo
crats continued to have control of
the senate, just as the Republicans
continue lo retain supremacy in that
body after the election of Mr. Cleve
land. They had lost the presidency,
to be sure, and tho house of repre
sentatives, but they still had the sen
ale, and through that advantage conld
readily Lave checked and thwarted
any attempt of Mr. Lincoln or the
Republican party to assail any of
their constitutional rights or inter
ests. But -they withdrew and estab
lished the southern confederacy, be
cause they had been beaten in the
presidential fight They took every
thing they could with them. A good
many of the actors in that bloody
drama are alive and actively engaged
in advising Mr. Cleveland what to do.
They were Democrats then; they are
These things all come back in a
very striking way -when we read that
the president elect goes to Washing
ton next Monday. The contrast is
certainly suggestive and instructive.
There is not the faintest murmur
anywhere of an intention or desire to
antagonize Mr. Cleveland's right lo
peacefully assume the office to -which
he has been elected. He will not be
obliged lo go to Washington in dis
guise for fear of kidnapping or assas
sination on tho way; and when he
gets there ho will not find an empty
treasury, a chaotic public fcrvice,
and a great black cloud of impending
national strife and misery. His title
to the presidency is no belter than
Mr. Lincoln's was; it is not in reality
so good if wq compare tho relative
figures of the two elections. There i&
just as much excuse now for the
northern Republican states and lead
ers to enter upon a rebellion because
Cleveland has been clort.-.l .is there
was for the southern O mocraSie
stales and leadors to pre i ..ite a ca
lamity of that kiud in j.ool because
Lincoln had beer elected. This dif
ference iu the conduct of the two
parties under circumsUinces almost
exactly the eamj will bear thinking
about very seriously.
Th e sun of '85 shines on different
conditions than did the sun of 'Gl.
Tho bitter fruit from blossoms blown
across tho sea no longer grows. A
new generation has arisen of men that
were in their cradles when sec
tional strife crimsoned the land,
and the dread menace of conflict
has passed away from our couutry,
let us hope forever. In this
afternoon of the 19th century, wheth
er Republican or Democrat the com
mon hope of all is that the words of
the first Republican president may
find affirmative echo in the nation's
heart, and that the government of
the people, by the people and for the
people, shall not perish from the
