No. 42 OUR REVIEW. Of the Pott and the Future of the American Negro, by D. W. Culp A. D. XXXI. THB NEGRO AND THE DEMOCRATIC PABTY. Shortly after the inauguration of Franklin Pierce as President of the United States Stephen A. Douglas shocked try by delivering the entire coun- his great speech in favor of repealing the Missouri compromise measure which was finally repealed on the 30th of May, 1854, after a very long and ex- citing debate in both the upper and the lower house. Thousands and thousands of Democrats were very bitterly opposed to the repealing of the 1820. They declared and maintained that it would re- kindle the fires of sectional strife and eventually disrupt the Demo- cratic party and the nation. But President Pierce and his supporters were bent upon forcing slavery upon the people residing in the new states and territories lying north of the 35th parallel and he was the second president of the United States who favored the ex- tension of slavery into new terri- tory, James K. Polk being the first. It is not our intention to elaborate upon the actions of Presi- dent Pierce, Senator Douglas and their associates, but it is sufficient to say that the abrogating of the act of 1820 was the immediate cause of plunging this country into the civil war. The formation of the Republi- can party the latter part of 1855, the chairman of the Repub'i- can state committees of Ohio, Mass- achusetts, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Wisconsin issued a call for a national Republican convention to be held at Pitta burg on the 22nd of February, 1856, for the purpose of effecting a national organization and to make provisions for a sub- sequent convention to nominate candidates for President and Vice- President. All the northern or free states and the following slave holding states: Maryland, Vir- ginia, Delaware, Kentucky, Mis- souri, Tennessee, North Carolina and Texas were represented by delegates who had been duly elected. John A. King, son of Ruras King, who was the bosom friend of Martin Van Buren, was chosen as temporary chairman and Francis Blair of Maryland, the eminent statesman, and long'the intimate friend of Andrew Jackson, was selected as its permanent presi- dent. Before the convention ad- journed it provided for the appoint, ment of a national executive com- mittee, the holding of a national convention in Philadelphia on the 17th of Jane, for the nomination of candidates for President and Vice-President and the organiza- tion of the party in all the states throughout the Union. When the members of the first Kepohlicau national convention assembled in the city of Philadel phia they declared that the first work of importance was to commit the new party to those belt evident eternal truths which emanatec .fromthe fertile brain of theim- mortal Thomas Jefferson, namely "ihat all mentare created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happi- ness." Another section of the platform which was adopted amid the wildest excitement was that congress had the power and the right and that it was its duty to prohibit and to prevent the intro- duction of slavery into new states and territories. John C. Fremont "the path- finder" of Missouri, was nominated for President and Wm. L. Dayton of New Jersey for Vice President. We have already observed that ex- President Martin Van Buren and his followers had proclaimed these same principles for twelve years prior to the formation of the Re- publican party and they were al- ways considered as the bulwark and as the very foundation stone of Democracy by Thomas Jefferson and by all the other Democratic presidents excepting James K. Polk, Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan. The Democratic national con- vention convened at Cincinnati, O on the 2nd of June, 1856, and James Buchanan secured the nom- ination for President and John C. B reck en ridge for Vice-President, and after a which had no parallel in the history of Ameri- can politics Mr. Buchanan and his running mate triumphed over all f their opponents. But more than and free sellers went down in defeat with John C. iVemont. (To be continued) THE REPUBLICANS HAVE CARRIED THE STATE OF OREGON. ON Monday, June 6th, an elec- ion was held in Oregon for the purpose of electing a governor, other state and city officials, tnem- >ers of the legislature and con- gressman, and the Republicans carried the state by over majority against the combined iorces consisting of Democrats, Populist and free silver Republicans and the result of that election is conclusive proof that it is utterly mpossible to mix oil and water, [n other words, United States Senator James K. Jones, chairman of the Democratic national com- mittee, Hon. Charles A. Towne, chairman of the free silver Re- lublican committee, Marion But- ler, chairman of the Populist na- tional committee and United States Senator Stephen M. White, chairman of the Democratic con- gressional campaign committee, all urged the leaders of the three separate parties to meet in confer- ence and parcel out the various offices among the separate parties before they had won the battle. But those who believed in the ideas and principles of Democracy and those who adhered to the principles of Populism, and those who belonged to vthat rare species of birds known as free silver Repub- licans refused to follow the advice of the various chairmen who have delegated the authority onto them- selves to dictate and to regulate the policy the Democratic party most panne in local affairs and the result is that Oregon has gone overwhelmingly Republican audits State legislature will elect a single gold, standard senator to the United States Senate. We predict that if Senator Jones and his associates continue to interfere with the political af- fairs of this state, that Utah will ;o Republican from three to ten thousand a McKmley gold bug will be elected to the United States Senate from Utah. OF THE LAUDABLE WORK CHRISTIANS. FRIDAY, June 3rd, more than one thousand people congregated together in Louisiana for the spe- cial purpose of witnessing the burn- ing of a negro who was chained to a stake, charged with committing rape. The kindling wood had been saturated with coal oil and only a few minutes elapsed until his body was reduced to ashes. It is said that it was one of the most sickening scenes ever wit- BONDS1WILL BE ISSUED ON Saturday, June 4th, the United States Senate passed the revenue bill authorizing the secre- tary of the treasury to issue bonds to the extent of four hundred mil lion dollars. Senator Kyle, Populist of South Dakota, and Senator Mantle, free silver Republican of Montana, re- corded their votes in favor of the measure. When the money power suc- ceeded in inducing President Cleve- land to issue bonds to the extent of two hundred and sixty-two million dollars, all the Republican and Populist orators and their editorial writers sent up a mighty howl. They denounced Grover Cleveland nessed in any portion of thin con- I as being an enemy and a traitor to tment. A number of jack-leg his country, simply because he lawyers addressed the crowd which i obeyed the" behests of the money had assembled and they asserted power and the other giant mono- "that such crimes would not be polies, who like huge devil-fish tolerated in a civilized community j continue to thrust out their fangs and suckers into every corner of We cannot find words m the English language sufficiently strong enough to condemn any person who is so vile and vicious as to forcibly rob any respectable woman of her virtue, and we would very cheer- fully lay down our life m order to protect the honor of any woman be she black or white. But at the same time we are most emphatically opposed to mob and lynch law and to the methods which these Christian gentlemen of Louisiana resorted to in order to punish the negro who was charged with committing the crime referred to. The southern people have resort- ed to methods which would cause the most barbarous races upon the face of the earth to shrink in holy horror from committing for the purpose of lessening crime, and as a warning to others to refrain from committing similar all to no avail, for most enlightened but the most ignorant people always have, and they will always continue to violate, not only the moral laws but also the civil laws. This being true, the whites of the south, especially those who claim to be lawyers, ought to urge the people to resort to the civil law instead of mob and lynch law. Years ago negroes were only mobbed and lynched for commit- ting rape. But today they are shot down like common dogs for stealing a one-eyed mule, a shoat or other small articles and even for possessing knowledge enough to serve as postmasters. To the negroes not only of the south but of this entire country, we admonish all of yon to acquit your- selves like law abiding citizens. Refrain from committing any un- lawful acts and banish from your minds the dellusionary idea that God will answer your prayers and that it is absolutely necessary foi the negro to be subjected to treat- ment that no other human being would stand for one minute in or- der to occupy a front seat in heaven. For there is no God who aits on his white throne in the heavens beyond the starry skies, who will answer your prayers oi hearken unto your voices, for the gods only favor those who possess tile courage and the man- hood to stand np and to fight for justice and liberty. this republic. But in this instance our Populist and Republican orators and editor- ial writers are as quiet as church mice. Evidently they have been I debauched by the same influence which was instrumental in causing John G. Carlyle to itsue bonds during Mr. Cleveland's administra- tion. There was no occasion whatever for this new bond issue and it was resorted to for no other purpose but "to gratify and reward the brokers and others who contributed funds for the election of Major McKinley and to fasten an extra and very oppressive burden upon the backs of the people. President McKinley has only two years and a half longer to occupy the White House, and we are of the opinion that at the ex- offenses But piration of that time the vast ma- not only the jonty of the American people will be thoroughly convinced that they have paid an enormous price for their golden whistle.

THE Broad Ax has received No. 1 of Vol. 1 of the Sanpete Democrat which is published at Manti by L. A. Lauber. The Sanpete Demo- crat will advocate the principles of the regular Democratic party as set forth in the Chicago platform. There is plenty of room in Sanpete county for a good staunch Demo- cratic paper and we believe that editor Lanber can cover the ground wich his Sanpete Democrat. WHAT the negroes need is a greater number of newspapers edited by intelligent men, sathat intelligent people of both, races will read them and pay for The Radical. W. EDWARDS, editor and publisher of the Fargo Forum and Daily Republican of Fargo, North Dakota, has worked very zealously for the past year and a half for the purpose of seeming the appoint- ment of his friend and partner H. C. Plumley as postmaster of Fargo. But Alex McKinze, United States Senator H. G. Hansbrongh and Jud Lamonr succeeded in landing their man Friday, and the gallant major andMr.Plnmley who have rendered invaluable service to the grand old party got it in tbe neck. The Broad Ax is of the opinion that President McKinley has made a great mistake by ignoring the claims of Messrs. Edwards and Plumley, for no other person in North Dakota has worked as hard and as faithful for the Republican party as Major A. W. Edwards.
