That NeW York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware and Maryland increased more than four-fold, and the twelve states Northwest, I have named, increased more thaii eight-fold. Two-fifths of the total wealth of the tfnited States is to be found between the twelve states 1 have named; so that out wealth is $2,000,000,000 greater than thr Wealth of the eleven states on the Atlantic (Continued on second And How It Has Returnsd Since Tariff Agitation Has Been Stopped. Following is the text of Senator Allison's speech, delivered at the great Republican rally at Marshalltown, In., Sept. 26: Mr. Chairman and Fellow Citizens: I congratulate you on this auspicious opening. This assemblage is an indication of the interest Republicans take in the result. That victory will come to us, cannot be doubted; that its magnitude will depend iipon effective organization and effort should be realized; organization rests with the State committee, the local committees and auxilliary clubs; effective effort rests with each citizen before, and on election day. Happily, the distress of two years ago is gradually passing away, and hope for, and confidence in the future, has taken its place. The causes that led to this distress and that give hope of : permanent prosper-. ,ity in the future require our careful study, because of the lessons they teach. These causes are not wholly political,but.largely BO. In their political organizations they are easily analyzed. The growth and prosperity of any country largely depends upon the virtue, intelligence, economy and industry of its people. These, in turn-, are promoted and; stimulated by wise laws faithfully and Intelligently administered. Thus the public policies of a nation become important to each individual composing it. 1 • The National Growth. : Our^ational growth and strength is,'the' "Work/of a single century, and; is the'mar- .''vel *of -history. ; fA-u-vemirierit statistician^ ..arid-writer rec&fitlf''said, in the North American Review';,thati., V •••.. • : _V "If .we take a survey of mankind in ancient' or' modern times, as regards the . physical;' mechanical and intellectual force of nations, we find nothing to' compare with the United States in the present year 1895." '•'••-.' •,•'':'• •'•, "The physical and mechanical power which has enabled a community, of woodcutters and farmers to become in less than 100 years the greatest nation in the world is the aggregate of the strong arms of men and women, aided by horse-power, machinery, and. steam-power applied to the useful arts and'sciences of every-day life;" To which he should have added: Aided and sustained by the best form of government ever Revised by the wisdom of men, wisely guarded and supported by the virtue of an enlightened people. This writer demonstrates with almost mathematical exactness the forces that created this national fabric of unexampled strength and vigor, and compares the present energy or working power of the United States with other countries,, and shows that it is equal.or nearly equal,' tB that of Great Britain, Germany and Prance united, although their population exceeds ours by 50,000,000. The effective re- pult of this working power is found in the products of the factory, the shop and the field, and is the product of them all. The intellectual power of the nation has kept pace with the physical forces and contributed GO them all. The census of 1890 discloses that 87 per cent of our population over 10 years'of age can read and write, That we are in advance of Europe in wise expenditure/for education, expending annually $3.40 per inhabitant, whilst Great Britain expends only $1.30, and France and Germany muph .less; and in this regard our own state stands pre-eminent, expending annually for this purpose more than $4,00 • for each inhabitant; a sum greatly in excess of the average of the United States, resulting in our small percentage of illiteracy as compared with otter spates and with the Union, We cannot measure this intellectual force with the exactness of physical force or energy, yet illustrations are abundantly at band disclosing our superiority in this regard. They are found in the inventive, genius of, pur ^sople,- in jjooks, magazines and newspapers\widely distributed and read, a? disclosed postofflce returns. The pieces hau,,,, our mails exceed those handled in all states of Europe, and at. a cost of third the post there. Summing up this intellectual force, the author whose eta* tistios I have quoted in part, says; "It may b§ fearlessly asserted that'-in fbe hjstopy (?f the human race'no, . e,ver before" possessed 41,000,000 of ?**^v*^w™WTi^v^ CONSERVATIVE. The first Use of the Word as an English Political Term. Canning, arid not Croker, was the first to use in English politics the Word conservative in its present sense, and too long has Thackeray's "Mr. Wenham" (Disraeli's "Mr. Rigby") had the credit which belongs to a far more brilliant man. The general assumption has been that the term was earliest employ- fed in The Quarterly Review for January, 1880 (No. 83, page 270), in an article Which has been commonly said, but upon no specified authority, to have been written by Croker, but its true first use was five years and a half previously. On June 8, 1824, a dinner was given to Geprge Hibbert, the chairman of the West? India Merchants of London, by the members of that body, and several of the leading ministers then serving under Lord Liverpool, the Tory premier, were present. In the course of the proceedings, says a contemporary account, "an observation which fell from Mr. Canning was that the spirit of the present government, as that of all governments ought to be, was essentially conservative." This appeared in John Bull of June 1J3,1824 (page 198),and the apt word was so obviously remarked that it was itali- oiized. Years passed, and Canning had died before the word is again to be met In' English, politics, but on; March 14, 18J29, Charles Qreville noted in his diary.-that "Herries told Hyde Villiers that •t$5ir (the Tories') policy was conservative, that of the Whigs subversive, and .that they never could act together."— "The. ; <3*eville Memoirs," volume 1, ;l, page 193. , «,., The word, employed by both. Canning Henries, was thus "in the air" before it was given in The Quarterly, and this accords with a 'statement made in the course of a •correspondence on the "Etymology of the Word Conservative" which appeared in The Standard at the end of October, 1882, wherein it was said to have been first used in 1829, during the closing controversies upon Roman Catholic emancipation.—Notes and Queries.
