In none of them was there a system of cabinet government, or parliamentary government, such as exists at the present day in the United Kingdom and in the British self-governing dominions beyond the seas. And, if we ask why parliamentary or cabinet government has not taken root in the United States, whilst it has taken root in all the British self-governing dominions, perhaps the chief reason is historical, namely, that the constitution of the old American
