FoU'tlcs is that branch of human duty
that has for Its object thto proper mode
of governing a state, so es to secure its
prosperity, pence, and ' safety, and to
attain as perfectly fcs possible the ends
of civil society. Among the subjects
which poM't-lcal science embraces are the
principles on which government Is
founded, the development and Increase
of resources of the e bates, the protection
of the rights and liberties of citizens, the
preservation of their tmonala, end the de
fense of the independence of the states
agiainst foreign control or conquest. The
enclent Greek writers treated politics
with reference to ein ideal state, which
each propounded according .to his own
speculative views, pointing out the varla.
tlon of every existing government from
his standard.
The politics of a country, in common
speech, implies the course of its govern
ment, niorfe especially in Its relation with
foreign powers.
French history .telle us thut, "The
states general, that is to stay, a convoca.
t-jon made up of deputies from all classes
In France, convened by royal order in
1789, opened its sessions May 5 In Paris.
It was called the constituent assembly,
but by its own act, June 17, 1789, named
Utself the national assemlMy. A universal
desire for the repealing of all feudal
privileges seized all classes, and even
those who were about to lose .them, re
solved to ofPir voluntarily as a sacrifice,
what they foresaw would soon . be de
manded. On motion of Marquis de No
allls. Aur. 4. 1789. all feudal privileges ex
cept royiallity were uibollshied, including
those of the religious order." This was
undoubtedly Ithe ftrst poUtlcat assembly
rm 'wrt rMir MMa. Pollt-
leal parties to.-long to a republican form
of eoverniment because .they ere more in.
dependent than any other fonm, and are
organized by people to announce their
views as to ithe proper .manner of con
ducting the government.
The development of political parties in
the United States first originated in 1796,
and primarily by reason of a desire of
the eympaahizers of France 4n, America
whom President Washington hod great
difficulty In restraining from enlisting the
Deoole Of the United States in foreign
war. Alexander Hamilton end John
Adams were leaders of ths Federalist par
ty, which supported the administration
of Washington, Jefferson, Madison and
Randolph became leaders of the repub
lican party which opposed the United
States banks, the English treaty, and
the assumlne of the state debts. Since
that ttlmie .political parties have domin
ated the policy of the president and con.
gress of the United States. The flret par-
-ties that appeared In the field with Issues
wiere the Federalldts and Republicans.
The Federulldts were in favor of inter
nal improvements, a protective tariff, and
a strong national government. Internal
lmprovidments consist of the Improvement
of rivers and harbors, the building of
drv docks for the repair of our navy and
merchant ahlps. the construction of cue-
torn houses, postotnees and other public
bulldlnfis. A protective tariff not only
provides revenue tor the expense of the
government to make internal improve
ments, but also discriminates Its duties,
so that tlhey are t'jvled principally upon
Imported aritjlclee thait come in direct
competition iwlth home Industries and so
adjust the rate (.that such compettag
foreign productions can net be placed
upon our markets alt rates less .than the
reasonable (home market price. A strong
national government was one In which
th'e president was given power by con
gress to protect the various Interests ot
the people by dlsarlrninaring agtalnst for
eigners that levy a prohibitive tariff upon
American products.
The Republicans fearing the doctrine
of the Federalists, lest the repubile should
become a monarchy aAd the president a
king, opposed their Ideas and advocated
Btates lights. The Republicans at this
time were accused by tlfelr opponents
of being friends of France, end the Fed
eralists were accused by those opposing
them Of being friends of Great Britain
and its aristocratic institutions.
The old Republican or anti-Federalist
party abandoned that namij end assumed
the name of the Democratic party in
1828, at which .time the present Demo
cratlc flirty was born. The Fed.rallst
party in 1835 was superceded by the Whig
party, who were in favor of a protective
tariff tamd internal improvements. The
Whigs and Democrats were the two prin
cipal political parties until 1856, when the
Whig party was succeeded by thu present
Republican party, The Republican party
was formed In 1851, principally by those
opposed to the further extension of slav:
ery in the United States, but dfd not pre
sent a candidate for the presidency un
til 1856. The several presidents were as
fallows: Washington, our first president,
was lelected by the people and had no
opponent, John Adams, e Federalist, was
the firsit president elected by that party In
1797. After Adams came Thomas Jeffer
son, a Republican, who was elected presi
dent for two terms tn 1801 and served
until 1809. j was succeeded by James
Midlson, a Republican also, who served
for two terms until 1817. He was suc
ceeded by James Monroe, a Republican
candidate, who served two terms until
1835. The next president, J. Q. Adams,
owing to four different candidates, none
of wham obtained x majority of th'e
electoral votes necessary, was elected by
the house of representatives and served
until 1829. He was succeeded by Andrew
Jackson, the first Democratic president,
who inuugiuratied the American policy in
politics, 'Uo -the victor belongs the spoils,"
or rotation In office. He served two terms
until 1837, and was succeeded by Martin
Vim (Buren, e!eo a Democrat. wno was
succeeded by WW lam Henry Harrison
