morally , it is the stronger one . Impatient of contradiction , more impatient of control , he commits himself to extreme courses before he is able to justify them ; he is so eager to be original and independent , that he is in great danger of being crotchetty and tyrannical . Judging him from his past history
, he is more than likely to fight with all his skill of oratory , and his passionate zeal , for the abolition of entail and primogeniture , not because he is convinced that they ought to be abolished , but because he sees that those who advocate their abolition 1 have some right on their side , and that prudence and mediocrity
! are ranged against them . Because prudence and mediocrity are often on the side of rank abuses , Mr . Gladstone will show i them s not no necessary quarter , even here when to argue they the are question decidedly as to whether right . the It sub-div ision of the land into small freeholds is desirable ; the system has failed everywhere — except where large tracts of
unoccupied rf land capable 4 of ^ improvement 7 , jr afforded < o a practical remedy for the paralysis of all energy and enterprise which such a system pro duces . A community of persons hovering on the verge of pauperism may be better than a community of wealthy persons and hopeless paupers ; but we doubt it : at any rate , the
true remedy is to abolish the pauperism , not to reduce the wealthy to something as near pauperism as is possible . We have opened up a wide field of discussion , which may be tilled some other time . At present let us hope that Mr . Gladstone will not throw away all moderationbecause he needs much zeal . Let him
boldly face the great social , difficulties which embarrass the real moral progress of this country . Let him , having disposed of the one political question on which the elections have turned , nobly resist the temptation to pursue the ultra-Radical programme against his better convictions . Let him consolidate
the political liberty of this country by a social Reform Bilb which shall abolish those noxious abuses which now poison the happiness of our poorer fellow-subjects . Let him fight against the tyranny of money , against the religion of Mammon . That is the real established creed , the overthrow of which truth , justice and demandLet education unfettered its
morality . spread blessings over the land , and teach all the people to use their political power aright . The liberty we require is not the liberty to speak or vote as we please , but liberty from that social tyranny which debases and enslaves body , mind , and soul alike .
