The People Must. Look to Democ
racy for Reform.
A Graphic Contrast Between the Dem
ocratic and Republican Parties
Drawn by a Master Hand.
New York, Oct. 7. In response
to the resolutions presented to him
from the National Democratic Con
vention, Samuel J. Tilden has written
the following letter:
Graystone, Oct. 6, 1884.
Mr. Chairman and Gentlemen of the
I thank yon for the kind terms in
which you have communicated
you nave communicatee me
resolutions concerning me adopted by
the late Democratic National Conven
tion. I share your conviction that
reform in the administration of the
Y I I M I I
reaerai government, wnicn is our
great National want, is indeed essen
tial to the restoration and preset-va
tion of the government itself and can
ouiy ueaomcvcn uirougn me agency
of the Democratic party, and by in-
1-1 u: j . i. i. .t

Magistracy of the United States. The
noble historic record of the Democrat
ic party, the principles in which it
was educated, and to which it has ev
er been in the main faithful, its free
dom from corrupt influences which
grew up in prolonged possession of
power, and the nature of the elements
which constitute it all contribute to
qualify it for that mission.
The opposite characteristics and
conditions which attach to the Repub
lican party, make it hniieless to ex
pect that that party will be able to
give a better government than a de
basing system of abuses which, during
its ascendency have infected its offi
cial and political life in this country.
The Democratic party had its origin
in the efforts of the more advanced
patriots of the revolution to resist per
version of our Koverment from the
ideal contemplated by the people.
Among its conspicuous founders were
jjemainin r raiiKiiu ana 1 nomas uei-
ii w i ! i mi w ! I
ferson, Samuel Adams and John Han-
cock, of Massacusetts ; George Clinton
and Robert Livingston, of New York,
George Wythe and James Madison, of
From the election of Mr. Jefferson
aS President in 1800, tor 60 years the
Democratic party mainly directed our
national policy. It expanded the
boundaries of the Republic and laid
. a J i
the foundation ot our uat onal ques
tions while it preserved the limits
tions imposed by the Constitution and
maintained a simple and pure system
On the other hand the Republican
party has always been dominated by
principles which favored legislation
for the benefit of particular classes at
the expense of the people.
It has become deeply tainted with
ahuxei which naturally grew up dti-
; ring a long possession of unchecked
T . . . mm, m . mm. m m mm, f I as . m A . . Mm . mm. . I L m-m mm m I
power, espevraiiy iu u pti ion 01 civil
war and false ti nance. The patriotic
and virtuous elements in it are now
unable to emancipate it from the sway
of selfish interests, which subordinate
public duty to personal greed. The
most hopeful of the best citizens it
contains despair of its amendment ex
cept through its temporary expulsion
from power. It has been boastiugly
asserted by a modern Massachusetts
statesman, struggling to reconcile him
self aud his followers to their Presi-
dential candidate, that the Republican
- -- ----
party contains a uipiopoi uonaie onaie
of the wealth and intelligence of the
country. The unprincipled Grafton,
when taunted by James II with his
personal want of conscience answered:
MThnt is true, but I belong to a
party that has a great deal of con
science." Such reasoners forget that
the same claim has been made in all
ages and countries by the defenders
of old wrongs agaipst new reforms.
It was alleged by lories of the Amer
ican revolution against the patriots of
that day ; it was repeated against Jef
ferson, and afterwards against Jack
son. It is alleged by conservatives
against those who,, in England are
now endeavoring to enlarged popular
suffrage. All history shows that re
forms in government must not be ex
pected from those who sit ou the so
cial mountain top enjoying, the bene
fits of the existing order of things.
Even the Divine author of our re
ligion found his followers not among
the self-complacent Pharisees, but
among the lowly minded fishermen.
The Republican party, largely made
up of those who lire by their wits and
who aspire in politics to advantages
over the rest of mankind, similar to
those whose daily lives are devoted
to securing gain iu private business.
The Democratic party consists largely
of those who live by the work of their
hands and whose political action is
governed by their sentiments or im
agination. It results that the Demo
cratic party more readily than the Re
publican party can be moulded to the
support of reform measures which in -
vol ve the sacrifice of selfish iuterests.
