OUR FEDERAL SYSTEM.
There has been published recently
hy the American Academy of Politi
cal and Social Science an interesting
essay by R V. Robinson, entitled
"The Nature of the Federal State."
The author's text Is the assertion that
the w hole drift of the world Is to
ward federalism today, as It was
toward feudalism in the tenth cen
tury and centralism In the fifteenth.
To this the author adds high praise
of the tripartite form of the United
States government, and yet, strangely
enough, he negatives his own argu
ment by urging the adoption of a
modification of the parliamentary
system of Oreal Britain.
The change in the American
system w hich Mr. Robinson would
bring about Is to give the executive
such a standing in the legislative
department that he could lead legis
lation. To use his own words:
"The Oerman chancellor Is Ger
many's greatest contribution to
politic. liven an elective president
and such a minister or ministers, and
the federal executive of the future
if prophecy lie allowable would lie
It so liaps'ns that the United
States Is making an actual though
non-constitutional test of the very
scheme which Mr. Robinson pro
poses. President Cleveland Is lead
ing the legislation, as far as to dic
tate to his party what it shall tlo ami
what refain from doing, but it Is
easy to see that the action or the
president is not received with favor
by anybody outside the army of
place-hunters. It is felt by all
thoughtful jHTsons, Irrespective of
party, that Mr. Cleveland Is exceed
ing Ids legitimate, functions, and the
very idea that a president may in
terfere with the legislative branch of
the government is causing serious
apprehension. Certainly such appre
hension could not he lessened if such
inteference were authorized hy law.
Says Mr. Robinson : "In congress
nobody leads ami nolody Is re
sponsible," and in so aaying he
manifest a singular Ignorance of
congressional practice and proceed
ing. There are several leaden of
the dominant partythe chairmen of
the principal standing coinmittees
antl they act in concert and after
consultation with the apcaker, who
is the exponent of his party' policy.
It may lie the administration meas
ures would be hastened aometlm if
the president had a recognized repre
sentative on the floor of the house,
but this country has never taken
kindly to administration legislation,
and, we vetdvre to say, never will.

William Thompson, on eastern
writer, In speaking of the ability of
feeders to Increase the butter fat In
milk, says t "A creamery friend of
mine, fettling a herd of fifty cow in
winter, most of them being well
adanvced in lactation, on clover hay,
wheat straw, ensilage, and oat
sheaves, was making- one pound of
butter from 15) pounds of milk, and
on dropping the oat ahcavea, found
that It took altout eighteen pounds of
milk to make a pound of butter, but
when tha oats were reauroed the
former average was restored. To
that extent, at any rate, richness can
be fed into milk, and I am inclined
to believe that by careful and contin
ued feeling the butter fat producing
cacity may to a varying degree In
different animals ls slowly Improved
so as to beconis a fixed characteristic
and be transmitted to the offspring.

THE REM'LT OK THE ELECTION
AMI IM EFFECTS.
The following paper was written
by Houoruble P. C. Cheney, of New
Hampshire, our ex-uilDlster to
Switzerland, Immediately after the
preidentlul election In Novemt-r,
ISti. It was Intended for pub
lication at that time, but was with
held. A a prediction upon the
course of events Its value is even
greater today. It reads as follows :
It dia-t not require the gift of
"prophesy" to foretell the resuli of
the late election, If it is the purpose
to administer tho government, in
accordance with their platform as
enuuicatfd at Chicago. To denounce
the system ot protection "a fraud"
and declare that "it Is unconstitution
al to collect tariff duties only for
revenue" is a prooeiitioii as strange
as it is un-American. To sever tin
arteries which sustain life is to le
come extinct. We cannot exist
without the essential and vital
parts. Our varied industries are so
lilteii'hangeably connected that each
liccomes a part of the w hole. Our
present "governmental system" Is so
formulated as to give successful re
sults and Insure stability. It simply
says, by the fostering of our Indust
rial pursuits, this republic has be
come great, powerful and im
measurably pro-perous, and It
should continue to extend Its pro
tecting care to all and each one alike
to the end that our growth should
not Is checked, and that we may
become as a nation still more con
spicuous. Can any one doubt that, If
with the advent of the incoming
administration next March it should
proclaim that it was to be the com
mencement of the inauguration of
the Kuglish system of collecting
duties and the rccal of all acts
which afforded protection to our
manufacturing industries, in ac
cordance with the resolution adopted
by the National Democratic Con
vention at Chicago, and which reads
"We denounce the republican jol
Icy of protection as a fraud on the
lalsir of the great majority of the
American people for the benefit of
the few. -We declare It to be a fund
amental principle of the Democratic
party that the federal government
has no constitutional jsiwer to en
force and collect tariff duties except
for the purK)so of revenue only."
