THE PARTIES

liament. The Tories under Peel's leadership had lost no time after 1832 in forming local associations for the preservation of the Constitution and the registration of electors, as well as a central party office. In 1867 these were combined in the Union of Conservative and Constitutional Associations, which held its first annual meeting in 1868. This body, accepting the hierarchical view of society, was content from the first to be the instrument of the central office and to pay due deference to the ukase of the leaders. With a short interval of revolt in the name of Tory democracy under Randolph Churchill, in which the leaders learnt to allow for the new classes of elector, it settled down to its traditional views. Subservience was the keynote of these; the Union did not and does not determine policy or choose the party leaders. Harmony seems to result nevertheless from the community of interest that interweaves party organs. The Union organised constituency and even ward committees which the local bigwigs controlled. It left to these a real measure of freedom in political activity extending to the choice of candidates. It went so far as to accept and even to promote the establishment of Conservative working-men's clubs, for it had recognised that great discovery of Disraeli: the Tory workman. But it gave him no real share in party counsels. To do so would indeed have been unthinkable, for it was contrary to the central principle of its philosophy, that society is rather like a disciplined army where the lower ranks take orders from above. If occasionally they allow themselves the liberty, not enjoyed by the soldier, "to reason why" the answer is confidence in the authority from which comes the command, is humility in the face of those who know better. Even if confidence is sometimes misplaced the consequent error is a small price to pay for the maintenance
