CY 7-2477 CY 7T708 CY 7-7288 CY 7-6875 Printed Pattern THE NEEDLESS WAR-2 Nobody Tried To Find Compromise Editor's Note-Ordinarily to (he Jnlted States, a political convnn- lion gives opposing factions n chance to blow oH steam. Instead of this, the 1860 Democratic convention built up an unendurable pressure. In the second of lour articles, a famous historian explains who this exception to (lie rule prepared the path to war. By BRIICB OATTON Written for Tlio Associated PI-MS Compromise Is an unpopular vord. It seems to mean that ynu ire rather wishy-washy—you don't lave the courage of your convic- loru, you won't dig in your hceis or a final stand. But we do need to remember hat compromise is what enables democracy to work. It enables us o face up to questions which, lett o themselves, would become explosive. In I860 nobody tried to find n compromise over the slavery ssue—nobody seemed willing even o talk over the possibility ol a "ompromise—and there was no compromise. The Democrats, holding their convention In Charleston, S.C., iromptly got into a dog-fight that vrecked the party beyond repair. Here was the party that offered lie brightest hope for a solution, imply because it was the one truly national party at that time, t was strong in the North and the South alike; it embraced nil shades of feeling in regard o lavery, and its leading candidate w the nomination, Sen. Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, was eagerly trying to find a middle-of-the- oad approach. Douglas had the strange notion bat the country had important hlngs to do and that it ought to get on with the Jobt withou vasting all of its energies in the irgument over slavery; lie said [uite frankly that he himself did not care whether slavery was voted up or down, just as lor.g as it was somehow disposed of. That was exactly Sen. Douglas's iroblem. He wanted a com- romise approach at a time when obody wanted to compromise. He vas in an old-fashioned political fight, involving nothing much oilier than a struggle for party ontrol; but he was also caught people had taken extreme pisl- tlons and refused to hear any tnlk of compromise. Consider what the senator from Illinois was up against. Leaders from the cotton South wanted n flat declaration, In the party platform and from the lips of the candidate, in favor of the extreme pro-slavery poslllon- slavcry was untouchable, and the question of restrninlriK or modi, tying the institution in any wny must not even be discussed. Douglas and the Northern Democrats would accept nothing ol the kind. They wanted a broad slatu- mcnt of the kind which ordinarily is dear to the politician's heart— something that would mean almost anything anyone wanted It to mean, en the ground that If this problem could just bo sidetracked for a few years it ivoiild eventually come down to manageable proportions. Under pressure from Southern pro-slavery extremists, they were also under pressure from Northern anti-slavery extremists. Somewhere between the extremes, they believed, the coming election cou'd be won. Usually, In such a political convention situation, blows n steam for a time and then tvorlis something out. This time that proved impossible; instead t>l Mowing off steam, this convention juilt up an unendurable pressure —and, in the end, broke squarely In half. The Northern half of the party nominated Sen. Doughs, and the Southern half nominated John C. Breckinridge of Kentucky. It immediately became obvious hat as a result the Republicans wre going to win the election. The Republicans guided themselves accordingly. Convening in Chicago, they did not bother wifli much debate. Declaring flatly tint slavery was wrong and must eventually go, they nominated Abraham Lincoln and set ouf, with immense singleness of pur- )ose, to pick up the victory which he Democrats had dropped in heir laps. Now another party took form— he Costitutional Union party, vhich wanted to preserve the Union and nominated John Bell of Tennessee, with a platform ral 1 .up in the fact that too many ing simply for reverence to the Dept.

Constitution and tho federal uniin —n creed to which almost any. body could subscribe. And then Uio campaign got under way. The campaign shed no light whatever, because nobody wanto.l to talk about the one sh(«V.'nnf; Issue. Lincoln refused to make nry speeches at nil, on the ground tlr.t his position already was clear. Bell upheld the Constitution nn.-l expressed the hope that brothers would not quarrel. Brceklnridye defied anyone to show that he had ever said one word against the Union and then lapsed Into u fl- lence ns all-embracing a^ Lincoln's. Sen. Douglas did Wy to make a debate out ol U; he mndc many speeches, the substance at them being that It would be absurd to break up the Union when there was more important work to do. Apparently nobody said much attention. In any case, neither the iioli'.l- cal conventions nor the campaign brought any real discussion ol the underlying Issue. Thcre^wwe many speeches and cdlJmalj, most of them consisting simply a', denunciations ot the opposition. Po- ilicnl marching clubs were formed, to parade and cheer und make music. Nowhere In the record of that ISfiO campaign can you find any real effort by anybody to bring the terrible pn/b- lem out into the open and cxplnra tho possibilities of a settlement. The Southern extrcmists^snl.l [hat if the anti-slavery crown won the election the Southern states would secede; the Northern extremists said that this was nonsense—just empty tnlk raised far political effect. Lincoln kept silent. riic Constitutional Union party c'e- plored all of the angry tnlk, ard Sen. Douglas—tho only candidate who really got on the stump and tried to make a campaign of it- found that in the North he wns running against Lincoln, aM in the South against Breckinrtilgo. In the end, of course, Lincoln was elected, with a solid electoral majority and a solid minority of the popular vote. But the trouble now was that this election, with everytliing that had gone before, had simply brought things to a head instead of providing a. sola- tion for anything.
