next administration, Republican or Democratic, might witness the beginning of the work. Perhaps, too, at some approaching day there may grow up in the United States a class at present conspicuously absent a class analogous to what the Greeks happily called "the middle citizens." That is a class which is not violently prejudiced in favour of any party, which is not in want, but is not rich, and does not wish to be. Possessing other aims than wealth, its politics I will be to make the United States a country fit for a poor man to live in. There is perhaps the nucleus of this non-partisan party
to be perceived in the unexampled numbers who this year voted against the party of their nominal allegiance. Such a class would be a surer safeguard to the country than many Supreme Courts. And the country needs it. For if this memorable election means anything, it means the opening of the assault of poverty and discontent upon the dominion of riches. Masquerading to-day behind vain and trivial irrelevancy, it yet shows its black and vengeful face under the mask. Tomorrow it will rush to the onslaught stark and hideous and very wicked, but with much wickedness to avenge.
