    Excerpt from The North American Review, Vol. 121 Since 1870, when Illinois adopted a new Constitution of a most peculiar character, as will be seen hereafter, there has arisen in a number of States a strong movement in the direction of political purification attempted to be worked out through the means of constitutional amendment, - a movement partly successful and partly abortive. It has apparently come to a definite pause, so that we can measure its spent force and describe the field over which it has passed. It was the result of a decided but undemonstrative feeling of general disgust with the shameless corruption in State capitols, and the new constitutional provisions were expressly designed either to purify the Legislature, or, if that could not be done, to forbid all legislation not imperatively necessary. Besides this, it may be said that numberless fancied ills of the Commonwealth were treated each with its supposed appropriate specific. The movement began in the West, and almost to the end of its course retained the characteristics of its origin, in its honest, blundering, narrow theories, in its heavy and clumsy blows at impudent wrong, and in its spasmodic wrath, which, having raged a certain length of time, gradually cooled again into the indifference out of which it had been for the while roused. The first State in line was Illinois, then Pennsylvania, then Ohio, and finally Michigan and New York. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
