stands on the same level of Infamy

In his senses ought to know, In ad-

mall other people as well. If the)
doubt this, let them look at the reve-
lations of corruption In my own slate
—New York—and in yours, my hear-
ers—here In Misaourl; let them look
at what has occurred In California
and what has occurred In Illinois. In
Illinois, for Instance, one of the ras-
calities developed by the recent In-

combination of legislators who black-
mailed fishermen along a certain

the corruption of Ihe corporations is

guided man who would persuade you
that either fact Is true. Our duty is
