DAIN, Charles, French magistrate, born in Guadeloupe, West Indies, 29 September 1812; died there in 1873. He was graduated in law and admitted to the bar in Paris. Having made the acquaintance of the economist Considerant, he neglected his profession for communistic disputes, and became a follower of the phalansterian doctrines, then professed by Fourier, Enfantin, and Marquis de Saint Simon. He took a prominent part in the European congress that was opened in Paris in 1833 by the French royal historical institute, and opposed the Christian philosophers Buchez and Roux-La-vergne. He was a contributor to "La democratic pacifique," in which he denounced slavery and urged its abolition in the French colonies. After the revolution of 1848 the slaves emancipated in Guadeloupe elected Dain their representative in the French chamber of deputies, and soon his radical colleagues recognized him as their leader. As such he denounced the conduct of President Cavaignac, and went so far as to ask, on the floor of the legislative assembly, for the immediate arrest of the president and all the members of his cabinet. When Louis Napoleon was elected president of the republic, Dain tendered his resignation, but the assembly refused to accept it. He returned to Guadeloupe in 1852 as judge of the Supreme Court, which office he held until his death.
