THE PARTIES

understood in its historical context. In the aristocratic political system of the period from 1689 to 1832 parties were divided in principle by their attitude to church and throne; in practice they were merely rival groups of wealthy families and their satellites, striving for place and power and offering themselves to contending princes as instruments in the battle, but united in their common wish to exploit government for the same ends even though the individuals who would benefit were different members of the same upper class. Tories had more reverence for church and throne, Whigs for Parliament, the one for legitimism and authoritarianism, the other for Locke's doctrine of consent and the principles of 1688. Both equally accepted the secular order and the need for its support by religious sanctions, but while the Tories feared encroachment by the mob, the Whigs looked more anxiously at the King.
The reform of 1832 hardly affected the traditional attitude; even after 1867 and 1884 it still lingered on. Great families had to base their claims to government on appeal to the growing electorate instead of on prescriptive right, even though for the next fifty years the method of that appeal might be direct bribery and that indirect corrupting power given by social position, wealth, and traditional political authority. The victory of the middle class in 1832 gave to business interests an entry into the charmed circle of power, and as industrialism, wealth, and population increased the old parry alignment took on new form and newer content. Conflict between families and placemen became more and more a struggle between rival economic classes, the traditionalist party taking on the defence of landed property, with its eighteenth-century view of an hierarchical society, and becoming "conservative," the more democratic party spon
