The New York Observer, of the 27th,
tells a very amusing story of a young
man the editor met on "a street car,
whose especial busiuess in connection
with one of the leading city dailies was
to write up exaggerations ; and the f el
low by way of explaining his business
more fully, opened one of the papers he
had in his hand, and showed what he
got up about the rata of Japan. Said
he didn't know whether there were any
rats at all in that country but he had
described them as about the size of
dogs and terribly fierce. He was pre
paring a series of articles on the cock
roaches of China, and asked Mr. Prime
if he knew anything about them.

.. . founding iHiern. . ; 1
1. .In considering the numerical as the
only majority; one naturally . insiders
tne numerical majurny ana. tne people
as identical. .'A perfect, govecnmeilt' bf
a popular kind would embrace the sense
of every, persob; in. the eominujaity.:But
as this is impracticable, they,who con
sider the numerical majority as the only
majority, and who can see no other way
by which, the sense of the -community
can be v taken, are constrained, to adopt
this;? majority the numericaMas the
foundation ' of f constitutional 'govern-?;
memV This force them to, regard the
numerical majority as the people, that
is, a part as the; whole. vrSupposing a
community to consist off- one tiiousand
persons, the sense of five hundred an4
one is accepted as the sense of one thou1
sand, and the majority .of -five hundred'
and one rules the minority of four hun
dred a&d .ninety-nine. Thus; majority
is enthroned, jClus error of considering
the numerical' majority as the only ma
jority has tended more than aught else
to prevent the formation, of popular
governments, or to destroy them after
f ormataon Were the numerical major
ity the people, a government organized
on the numerical principle, would be a
fair government : But since the numer
ical majority is only a portion' of the
people, . there is, in such case, no self
government, no government of the peo-
Ble, or by the people, or for the people,
ut -the . government of the major por
tion over the minor pf the part over
2. A second error springing from con
founding the two majorities . is this:
Organism comes to be regarded a
wrongful restriction under the im
pression that organism interferes with
the rights of the people. It is obvious
that if the majority be deemed the peo
ple, any organism that restricts the ma
jority will be held a wrongful restric
tion on the people.
3. A third error is that written con
stitutions are of themselves sufficient to
counteract the tendency of the numeri
cal majority to oppression. Written
constitutions cannot, without proper or
ganism, prevent government from abus
ing its power. To prove this history is
full of illustrations.; The facts of the
case not less plainly establish the
proposition. The written constitu
tion is but anindia rubber band
to be stretched or contracted at the
will of the majority. ' The "majority
will construe the constitution so as to
enlarge their powers and get a sanc
tion for their abuse of power. The
minority, on the other hand, will con
strue the constitution elosely so as to
find in it protection. The majority will
use the constitution as a sword to as
sail ; the minority as a shield to pro
tect The dominant party will be lib
eral constructionists : The subject par
ty, strict constructionists. , Thus, under
written constitutions the major and
the minor portion of the community
will struggle for a proper construction
of the constitution. ' The ' result of op
posing constructions will be that the
majority will carrythe day, and when
ever it suits their purpose will encamp
outside of the constitution. Thus writ
ten constitutions in themselves and
without proper organism, that is a cer
tain self-regulating interior structure,
give no protection to minorities, and
in themselves, without other agencies,
do not make up constitutional govern
ments. And yet confound the two ma
jorities and men come to consider writ
ten constitutions in themselves suffi
cient to meet the ends of government.
How fallacious the idea! How fatal
the error. On this point Hammond
one of the ablest men that South Caro
lina has ever produced the peer in in
tellect of any American statesman of
his day says that no government can
exist long by mere paper stipulations.
He adds: written constitutions,' said
Anacharsis to Solon, 'are but spiders'
webs, which hold only the poor and
weak, while the rich and powerful easi
ly break through.' Solon thought Oth
erwise, but lived to see the government
he established completely overthrown.
Lycurgus, more Wise, forbade written
laws. His principles were durably im
pressed, by training from childhood, on
the . minds and manners of his people,
and interwoven with the whole social
fabric. And. they governed the Spar
tans for six centuries or more. In mod
ern France no enacted constitution has
survived five years, while the constitu-
tion of England, resting on traditions
and occasional acts and charters ap
pears to bid defiance to time and pro
gress,. Those governm ents only can en
dure which spring naturally from the
sociaF system and are habitually sus
tained "by -it And written, artificial
constitutions are indeed ' but spiders'
webs if they do not continually draw
their vital breath from the same living
4. Another error proceeding from
confounding the two majorities is that
the division of governments into de
partments prevents the tendency to
abuse of power. This isan error be
cause if the numerical principle pre
vails, the majority will seize some one
or all of the departments, and, in spite
of the division, hold its sway. It is ob
viously only when one department of
government has a negative on the ac
tion of the others that we can prevent
the liability to abuse of power. But
this done, the concurrent principle is en
throned. . ....
We have thus shown four distinct er
rors that arise trom confoundiug the
concurrent with the numerical princi-
Ele; and have shown the necessity of
idling back on the concurrent princi
ple to save government from abuse of
power and to make it subserve the
nigh ends' for which.it is established
among men. , ; '- J. P. T.
