J), it. Locke, author of tlio Niiaby
letters, and owner of the Toledo
Jlladc died week lcforo last, leaving
a million of (lollnro besides the paper
which Is it fortune in Itself. Much
of his inoiioy wits the result of
fortunate Investments, but the
capital which he invented was what
he earned writing tho lcttera that,
luring tho wur, were moro widely
published and read than tho produc
tions of any other author on tho
continent. Those wore very coarse
carlcatttroH of the .Bourbon De
mocracy of tho southern and border
HfateH, were without literary merit,
and were all upon one line, but thoy
appealed utrongly to tho iopular
homo of tho rldlculouH, wero level to
comprehension of tho plain people,
and thoy made their way where
direct argument, towed upon hurd
fact, could not go, and hud an in
fluence which tho eloquence and
logioofthe greatest statesmen did
not exert. And Ijocuuhc they pleased
tho people thoy made Locko famous
nnd rich, Just im Nast'tt caricatures
In Humor's have won for Mm
fortune and repulullon and contrib
uted very largely to the suc
cess of the publication in which
thoy were given to tho publlu.

ED. Capital Journais "With
out wishing to perpetrate pun,
probably now developed Into a
chestnut, I wish to say that you
have made of your paper a capital
Journal. But I presume, friendly
criticisms will, with your usual
liborallty, be allowed.
In your salutatory you praise the
republican party and very justly
for tho fuct that, twenty-eight ycare
ago, it "planted itself upon a single
sentlmonfr the preservation of this
union. Around this central idea
the best and bravest of tho nation
rallied," etc. Then you declare that
"the democratic party has no great
principle this is its misfortune."
Now. why stop there? Is there not
another party with a great, leading
"sentiment," and "a central idea" ?
Has notthe,prohlbition party agreat
and grand aim, "the preservation of
the union" from the wasting, with
ering blighting curse of tlio grog
shop and the liquor trafflc? That
our beloved land needs this preser
vation Is evident, for
tho Toledo Blade, as
staunch a republican paper as tho
Capital Journal, deliberately says
that "tho country must kill the
liquor traffic, or tho liquor traffic
will kill the country." Then, why
Ignore this growing party, when
drawing comparisons? Do you not
think It will be heard from during
the coming state and presidential
elections? Have not 160,000 among
"tho tot and bravest" rallied around
It with wonderful enthusiasm?
True, that Is not so vast a number.
But hnd tho republican party as
many, eight and twenty years ago?
And, without supposing you to be a
prophet, do not "coming events
casting their shadows before" in
dicate a largo Incrcaso in Nov. 1888?
Please do tho fair thing by us all,
and do not limit tho active parties
aia-ady stripped for tho tight, with
national conventions called, to only
two. Yours, r
peared at tho polls, and less than
25,000 attended the primaries. Is it
any wonder that the polities of that

a sickening blot upon the political
features of the elate of New York?
It will continue so, unless tho peo
ple take hold of the primary meet
ings and purgo them of professional
"slate makers." and destroy the
Bchomes which are made up by a
few, secretly, for the rank nnd file to
swallow on election day.
This government Is essentially
political. Any person having a
thorough knowledge of the political
Issues between the great parties
since J"the Declaration of Indepen
dence, knows well the history of the
United States. The man who takes
no interest in the primary, and
avoids having anything to do with
politics, is not a good nor safe citi
zen. Politics make the laws that
crovern us ana elect tne men mat
administer them from tho president
down to constable. Politics are the
foundation and support of tho fabric
under which we live. Tho man who
takes no interest In politics, leaves
the dearest interests of his country
to be appropriated by the sportsman
and place hunter. He, by his in
difference, is sowing the seeds of de
cay and eventual dissolution, for If
this government ever falls, its great
est cause of overthrow will como
through its own impurity, brought
about by tho indifference of the peo
ple, and the wickedness of Its
politics. "Eternal vigilanco is the
price of liberty."
