POLITICAL PARTIES 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- Polit 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 in 1841, the first Whig candidate, who died a month after his Inauguration, and was succeeded by John Tyler, vice president by his successive vetoes be caused great anger amd excitement among the Whigs, who had (elected him. Jlames K. Polk, a Democrat was elect'; president in 1845, and during bis term of office the war with Mexico, which gitve us California, Arizona end 'New Mexico, also the settle ment of the Oregon boundary question, which gave us the state of Washington, end a part ot Idaho, were ctoneumated. principality through Ithe statesmanship of Dunlet v eoster, nis secretary w statu. The Whig party was next victorious and ia 1649 elected General Zacbary Taylor, who died about one year after his In auiruraUon. end was succeeded by Ma lard FHhnore, vice-president, who was succeeded by Franklin Pierce In 1853, tbs Democratic nominee. During bis admin- fetr.vtion the Whig party ceased to rx- HE Popped the f when aUESTION, and Would Not take NO for an ANSWDR ! -f The One 1st, and wtas succeeded by the organiza tion of the Republican party. And in 18.77 .Tumon Buchanan, a Democrat, was elected nresldent. His principal oppon ent was John C. Fremont, th'e Repub lican nominee. In 1860 the Democratic party divided and imUde two nominations for president, Stephen A. Douglass, who favored squatter sovereignty, and John C. Breckenridge, who ctulmed that slav ery could be carried Into amy territory. The Republican party nominated Abra ham Lincoln, who held that white slavery must be protected where it was It ought not to be carried Into a free territory. Lincoln was elected and inaugurated March 4. 18ta. In February, 1861, seven ot the Southern States sac?ded from the Union and formed a government called the "Confederate States of America." In April General Beauregard, who had com. mand of the Confederate troops at Char leston, South Carolina, demanded of Major Anderson, the commander of the United States troops occupying Fort Sumter, to surrendsr, and upon his re. fusal fired upon the fort. This was the beginning of our great civil war which lasted till the expiration of Lincoln's flret term of office. Lincoln was again elected in 1864, and was Inaugurated March 4, 1865. He was assassinated April 14, 1865. when Andrew Johnson, vice president, be came president until 1869. The Repub licans again nominated and elected as president for two terms Ulysses S. Grant. Th' next president was a Republican, Rutherford B. Hayes, who was inaugur ated March 4, 1877, he served four years and was succeeded by James A. Garfield, a Repuallcun, n iski. resident uarnera was assassinated July 2, and died Sep. tember 19 of that year. Vice President Chester A. Arthur then took tine oath of office and assumed Ithe duties of presi dent until 18S5, making tlwenty-four years of Republican ad'mlnlstrtation. Then a Democrat, Grovx Cleveland, was inaug urated president Marcti 4, 1885. He wnas succeeded In 1889 by Benjamin Harrison, a RepuUiean, who held the office for on t;-rm. Grover Cleveland was ugaln elected and is the present Incumbent of that high office. From the above we find .the number of presidents and length of lime of each; the Federalists cected' one president, serving four y.ars ; ithe Democrat Repub lica'.s elected two, serving sixteen years; the Whigs three, serving twelve yLars; the Democrats six, serving rtwen'ty-elKht years and the pres.nt -Republicans five presidents, serving twenty-eight years.

"Every day hath Its dawn, Its soft and silent eve, Its noontide hours of bliss or bale, Why thouCd we grieve?" And yet, h,aw few of us see the bright ness or Joy m the day that Is here; how smaiu a thing It seems; how we allow It to go In anxious longing for the bright tomorrow, in vul-n regrets for the happy past. How many of us now, looking tack- ward to some other day, will sigh, "Oh, how happy I was then; surely the sun was brighter, the flowers more fragrant, and friendships warmer, and then the consoling thought, the soothing balm the bright and beautiful future; but the living present, the day that is here, has no Fascination lor us. "We will not clasp it las It flies. Nor kiss its Hps and brow, We win not bathe our wearied souls. In Its delicious Nuw." Why do we not make the best of these fleeting days, that perhaps in after years we wouid give our Jives to recall? Why do we, heedless, let them fly as careless ly as winged butterflies, with never a thought of "How we heap huge mounds of years, Before us and behind. And scorn the, little days that pass, Like angais on the wind" How few ot us now are living this beautiful June time with a full apprecia tion of Its glory? Why must past Junes seem eo much more radSartt and future summers gCowirig with promise, while the beauty end bloom "of the day that Is with us Is clouded by strife and 111 will, dark ened by the evil - deeds of those who through petty leatousles, seek to Injure us and marred by cur own wilful spirit of revenge.

Fellow classmates, let us today, as we are about 'to enter upon a higher course of education, resolve to dive the living present for the good that we cam do, to think of that eternal future and prepare ourselves for it by deeds of tove and kindness and to remember through the coming year to "Count that day tost Whose low, descending sun, Views not from from thy hand Some worthy action done." ADELE 60VEY. BOOK OF FATE. Heaven ifrOm all creatures hides the book of fate. FU'te is the friend of the good, -the guide of the wise, the tyrant of the fool ish and the enemy of the bad. It Is far better we know not. But how different our lives would be and how bright the lives of others. If we only could look forward and see which one of the two roads -fa'te Is going to lead us Into. The one road treading us into a peaceful, sunny Cand, covered with a fertile f.ar vesl and resounding with soft, sweet songs; or Is our fa'te to be the fate of many, conducted Into a deep, dark cave, Whence there Is no issue, where poison flows Instead of the 'beautiful cool, clear water, and where serpen'as hiss and crawl. Fate has led and will still lead many of our friends and companions along the dark dreary road. While others will trod the pathB of virtue and Industry and wlCl be honored and happy. Fate has carried me. 'Mid the thick arrows, 1 will keep my stand. Not shrink and let the fchafi; pass by my heart, to pierce an other. Ye w-ho etltl linger on the threshold of life, doubting which pathway you will choose and wondering which pathway fate will lead you. Struggle against fate If it lead you Into the wrong read, for remember when yeans have passed and you,.- fet shall e.umbCe on the dark mountains you will cry bitterly, but cry In vain. O, yo-J.h, return, cii, give me back my 'arly days. Chat I may struggle against fate tend conquer. WINNIE BELL. CEDAR STREET SCHOOL.
