"The danger is admitted. - Clearly seeing
tha evils of too much legislation, we call
for more, Through chance majorities,
stable In nothing, we wouldregulate the
tastes, morals, and habits of-the pcoplo
by act of assembly.
"Perennially reproaching congress, wu
would nevertheless augment tha powers
of congress. We are creatlng a system of
centralized bureaucracy and supplement
ing the civil service with multlfarioUH
commissions. We have a-standing army
of officials, Collectivism, robbing man of
hla Individuality, trusts nothing to ttm
force of nature, the genius of or Institu
tions and the provldenco of God.
"Yet wo dl'dftln l'ke experience and

ernment by hysteria, displaying Its
excess on the one hand by the vainglor

sance; on the other hand, expressing Its
humanity through tha explaltotlqn ot

"Do I overpalnt the picture? 'Is It
but the mocking- effigy pf an ojd man'i
pessimism? Let us not be to sUre of
ourselves. If we preserve that which
Washington and Franklin and Jefferson
contemplated; that which Jones and
Perry, Harrison and Shelby fought for.;
that which each side In -the war of sec

dom we shall have done well.

"We have not been so well governed
