ARMY BILL FORCED THROUGH HOUSE Cuts Off Five Regiments of Cavalry. Republicans Made Vain Fight to Save Extra Fay for listed Men. Washington, February 1C Tho army appropriation Mil, carrying all of the essential features of tho reorganization plan proposed by Representative liny of Vlrglnln, chairman of the Commltforced tco on Military Affairs, was Knougli Dom through tho House ocrnts bloke away .from the machine when the five-yeenlistment amendment was voted on to glvo tho Democratic leaders a scare, tho voto being lie to 131, but this was tho only time the steam roller wus In dnnger of an upset. As It passed the House the army bill period Increases tho enlistment from threo to flvo years; reduces the cavalry branch of the nrmy by five regiments in tho'' faco of the possibles trouble soutli of the Rio Grande River, eliminates the extra pay Hint for yenrs hus been allowed officers and enlisted men detailed to duty In the Philippines and 'other noncon-tlguoterritory, which amounts almost to ti breach of contract with tho men; creates n service corps and n new general staff nnd abandons twenty-fou- r "useless'' nrmy fiosts. That tho nrmy bill is revolutlonnry Is putting It mildly. It strikes at several of tho fundamental pilnclplcs for which MuJ. den. Wood, chief of the general staff, nnd his associates, liavo been laboring long, offering in their stead unby tried theories written Into tho bill Chnlrman liny nnd thoso who liavo collaborated with him. The Republicans of tho Houso tried in vain to stem tho current ondprc vent n wholesale slushing of tho military establishment with consequent Injustices to officers and men. For cxnmple.n strenuous effort was made to prevent tho cutting off of tho 10 per cent extra pay allowed officers und 20 per cent given enlisted men wlUlo serving outside of Continental United States. But the Democrats turned a deaf ear to every suggestion made along this line. When Representative Ilobson of Alabama secured recognition and offered tan amendment limiting the tlmo when tills proposed change Would tuko place so that it would not affect men now In tho service. Representative Fitzgerald of New Yoik made a point of order, which Representative Saunders of Virginia, who was prosidlng.quickiy sustained, In splto of the fact that Minority Loader Mann he said distinctly two or three times desired to bo heard on the point of order. Mr. Hobson warned his Democratic colleagues that this was a mistaken and unjust policy, calculated to work an Injury to tho army, In addition to withholding from tho men compensation to which they knew they were entitled when they entered the service. This proposition wus finally disposed of by a roll colt, Representative Prince of Illinois, ranking Republican on tho Military Committee, making a motion to recommit the bill with instructions that the objectionable provision be stricken out, and the same be Immediately reported back to the House. Tho vote on tills roll call was 110 ayes to -ar powering tho Commlttco on Hanking nnd Currency to proceed with Its Investigation of tho money trust has been disposed of.

Preparations for breakfast were toward; an aroma of catfee and baoon hung in tho still, crisp air. The troopers were bustling about as if nothing had happened, laughing and joking, cleaning rifles, feeding the striking tents, drawing water from the well round inhlch the camp had been made. Out of sight beyond the edge of the sunken oasis a detachment was digging shallow trenches for tho dead. In the open Chambret lay dying, a Etark grim figure in the growing light. O'Rourke sat by his side, near the bead of the improvised litter, elbow in knee, chin in hand, eyes fixed on tho face of bis friend. Just before sunrise the man on tho litter etlrred, moaned, opened his ejes nnd turned his head to see O'Rourko. He smiled wanly. "Mon ami," he said In tones faint yet thick. The Irishman rose.

I shall not try to speak to you of I cannot touch matters of detail. upon thorn all; the subject Is too vast and the time too limited; If any one of you cares to know my views of theso matters which I do not today discuss, I will gladly send him a copy of the speeches I made In 1910, which I think cover most 'of the eround. I believe In pure democracy. With Uncoln. I hold that "this country, with Its Institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit It Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending It." "Wo progressives believe that the people have the right, the power, and the duty to protect themselves and their own welfare; that human rights are supreme over all other rights; that wealth should be the servant, not the master, of the people. We believe that unless representative government does absolutely represent the people It Is not representative government at all. We test the worth of all men and all measures by asking bow they contribute to the welfare of the men, women and children of whom this nation Is composed. We are engaged in ono of the great batcontest waged tles of the against privilege on behalf of the common welfare. We bold It a prime duty of the people to free our government from the control of money In politics. For this purpose we advocate, not as ends In themselves, but as weapons in the hands of the people, all governmental devices which will make the representatives of the people more easily and certainly responsible to the people's will. . . . Constitution and the People. I am emphatically a believer In constitutionalism, and because of this fact I' no less emphatically protest against any theory that would make of the Constitution a means of thwarting Instead of securing the absolute right of the people to rule thersselves and to provide for their own social All constiand Industrial tutions, those of the states no less than that of the nation, are designed, and must bo interpreted and administered, so as to fit human rights. Lincoln so Interpreted and administered the national Constitution. Buchanan attempted to reverso, attempted to fit human rights to, and limit them by, the Constitution. It was Buchanan who treated the courts as a fetish, who protested against and condemned all criticism of the Judges for unjust and unrighteous decisions, and upheld the Constitution as an Instrument for the protection of privilege and of vested wrong. It was Lincoln who appealed to the people egalnst the Judges when the Judges went wrong, who advocated and secured what was practically the recall of the Dred Scott decision, and who treated the Constitution as a living force for righteousness. We stand for applying tho Constitution to the Issues of today as Lincoln applied It to the Issues of his day. . . , Duty of Public Servants. "I hold it to be tho duty of every public servant, and of every man who In public or In private life holds a position of leadership In thought or .action, to endeavor honestly and fearlessly to guide hJs to right decisions; but I emphatically dissent from the view that It Is either wiso or necessary to try to de hard-headed hard-headeage-long well-beinfellow-countrym- address before the Ohio constitutional vise methods which under tthe Constitution will automatically prevent the people from deciding for themselves what governmental action they deem Just and proper. . . . Constitution-makers should make it clear beyond shadow of doubt that the people In their legislative capacity have the power to enact Into law any measuro they deem necessary for tho betterment of social and Industrial conditions. The wisdom of frnnlng any particular law of this kind Is a proper subject of debato; but the power of tho people to enact the law should not bo subject to debate. To hold the contrary view Is to be false to the cause of the people, to the causo of American democracy. Aim of Good Government. ... The ends of good government In our democracy nro to secure by gcnulno popular rule a high average of moral and material among our citizens. It has been well said that In tho past wo have paid nttcntlon only to tho accumulation of prosperity, and that from henceforth wo must pay equal attention to the proper distribution of prosperity. This Is true. The only prosperity worth having Is that which affects the mass of tho people. I hold It to be our the duty to see that the small producer, the ordinary consumer, shall get their fair share of the benefit of business prosperity. Dut it cither Is or ought to be evident to every one that business has to prosper before anybody can get any benefit from It. Therefore I hold that he Is the real progressive, that he Is the genuine champion of the people, who endeavors to shape the policy alike of the nation and of the several states so as to encourage legitimate and honest business at the same time that he wars against all crookedness and Injustice and unfairness and tyranny In the business world (for of course wo can only get business put on a basis of permanent prosperity when the element of Injustice Is taken out of It.) This Is the reason why I have for so many years Insisted, as regards our national government, that it is both futile and mischievous to endeavor to correct tho evils of big business by an attempt to restore business conditions as they were In the middle of the last century, before railways and telegraphs had rendered larger business organizations both Inevitable and desirable. What Is needed Is, first, the recognition that modern business conditions have come to stay, in so far at least as these conditions mean that business must be done In larger units, and then the and resolute determination to Introduce an effective method of regulating big corporations so as to help legitimate business as an Incident to thoroughly and completely safeguarding the Interests of the people as a whole. We are a business people. The tillers of the soil, the the business men these are the three big and vitally Important divisions of our population. The welfare of each division Is vltnlly necessary to the welfare of the people as a whole. The great mass of business Is either small or of moderate size. The middle-sizebusiness men form on element of strength which Is of literally Incalculable value to the nation. Taken as a class, they are among our best citizens. They have not been seekers after enormous fortunes; they have been moderately and Justly prosperous, by reason of dealing fairly with their customers, competitors, and employes. The average business man of this type Is, as a rule, a leading citizen of his community, foremost In everything that tells for Its betterment, a man whom his neighbors look up to and respect; he Is In no sense dangerous to his community, Just because he Is an integral port of his community, bone of Its bone and flesh of Its flesh. His life fibers are Intertwined with the life fibers of his fellow citizens. Yet nowadays many men of this kind, when they come to make necessary trade agreements with one another, find themselves In danger of becoming unwitting transgressors of the law, and are at a loss to know what the law forbids and what It permits. This is all wrong. There should be a fixed governmental policy, a policy which shall clearly define and punish wrong-doing- , and shall give in advance full Information to any man as to Just what he can and Just what he cannot legally and properly well-being wage-worker, cool-heade- d wage-workerd governmental regulation of big trait-net- s which Is needed. The nation and In this matthe states must ter. Among the states that have entered this field Wisconsin has taken a leading place. Following Senator Li FoIIette, a number of practical workers and thinkers In Wisconsin have turned that stnto Into an experimental laboratory of wise governmental action In aid of Boclnl and Industrial justice. They hnvo Initiated the kind of progressive government which means I not merely tho preservation of true democracy, but the extension of the princlplo of true democracy Into industrialism as well as Into politics. One prime reason why tho state has been so successful in. this policy lies In the fnct that It has done Justice to corporations precisely as It has exacted Justice from them. . . . Not only as a matter of Justice, but In our own Interest, we should scrupulously respect the rights of honest nnd decent business and Bhould encourage it where Its activities make, as they often do make, far tho common good. It Is for tho advantage of all of us when business prospers. Our demand Is that big business give the people a square deal and that the people glvo a square deal to any man engaged In big business who honestly endeavors to do what Is right and proper. On the other hand, any corporation, big or little, which has gained Its position by unfair methods and by Interference with the rights of others, which has raised prices or limited output In Improper fashion and been guilty of demoralizing and corrupt practices, should not only be broken up, but It should bo made the business of somo competent governmental body by constant supervision to see that It does not como together again, save under such strict control as to insure the community ngalnst all danger of a repetition of the bad conduct. The chief trouble with big business has arisen from the fact that big business has so often refused to abide by the principle of the square deal; the opposition which I personally have encountered from big business has In every case arisen not because I did not give a square deal but because I did. Proper Governmental Control. All business Into which the element of monopoly In any way or degree enters, and whero It proves In practice Impossible totally to eliminate this element of monopoly, should bo carefully supervised, regulated and controlled by governmental authority; and such control should be exercised by administrative, rather than by judicial, officers. No effort should be made to destroy a big corporation merely because It Is big, merely because It has shown Itself a peculiarly efficient business instrument. But we should not fear, If necessary, to bring the regulation of big corporations to the point of controlling conditions so that r shall have a wage tho more than sufficient to cover the baro cost of living, and hours of labor not so excessive as to wreck his strength by the strain of unending toll and leave him unfit to do bis duty as a good citizen of the community. Where regulation by competition (which is, of course, preferable) proves Insufficient, we should not shrink from bringing governmental regulation to the point of control of monopoly prices if it should ever become necessary to do so, Just as In exceptional cases railway rates are now regulated. . . . We grudge no man a fortune which represents his own power and sagacity exercised with entire regard to the welfare of his fellows. We have only praise for the business man whose business success comes as an Incident to doing good work for his fellows. But we should so shape conditions that a fortune shall be obtained only In honorable fashion, In such fashion that its gaining represents benefit to the community. In a word, then, our fundamental purpose must be to secure genuine equality of opportunity. No man should receive a dollar unless that dollar has been fairly earned. Every dollar received should represent a dollar's worth of service rendered. No watering of stocks should be permitted; and it can be prevented only by close governmental supervision of all stock Issues, so as to prevent wage-worke- . do. Control of "Big Business.", So much for the small business man and the middle-sizebusiness man. Now for big business. It Is Imperative to exercise over big business a control and supervision which is unnecessary as regards small business. All business must be conducted under the law, and all business men, big or little, must act justly. But a wicked big Interest Is necessarily more dangerous to the community than a wicked little interest. "Big business" In the post has been responsible for much of the special privilege which must be unsparingly cut out of our national life. I do not believe In making mere size of and by Itself criminal. The mere fact of size, however, does unquestionably carry the potentiality of such grave wrong-dointhat there should be by law provision made for the strict supervision and regulation of these great Industrial concerns doing an Inter-statbusiness, much as we now regulate the transportation agencies which are engaged In Inter-statbusiness. The anti-trulaw does good In so far as It can be Invoked against combinations which really are monopolies or which restrict production or which artificially raise prices. But In so far as Its workings are uncertain, or as it threatens corporations which have been guilty of l conduct, it does barm. Moreover, It cannot by Itself accom- pllsu more than a trifling part of the e o antl-socla- We stand for the rights of property, but we stand even more for the rights of man. We will protect the rights ot the wealthy man, but we maintain that be holds his wealth subject to the general right ot the community to regulate Its business use as tho public welfare requires. We also maintain that tho nation and the several states have the right to regulate the terms and conditions of labor, which is the chief element of wealth, directly In the Interest ot the common good. You, framers ot this constitution, be careful so to frame it that under It the people shall leave themselves free to do whatever Is necessary In order to help the farmers of the state to get for themselves and their wives and children not only the benefits of better farming but also those of better business methods and better conditions ot life on the farm. Moreover, shape your constitutional action so that the people will be able through their legislative bodies, or, falling that, by direct popular vote, to provide workmen's compensation acts, to regulate the hours ot labor for children and for women, to provide for their safety while at work, and to prevent overwork or work under byglcnlo or unsafe conditions. To Secure Best Results. Bo much for the ends of government; and 1 have, of course, merely sketched In outline what the ends should be. Now for the machinery by which theso ends are to be achieved; and here again remember I only sketch In outllue and do not for a mo ment pretend to work out In detail the methods of achieving your purposes. Let mo at the outset urgo upon you to romember that, while machinery Is Important, It Is easy to overestimate Its Importance; and, moreover, that each community has tho absolute right to determine for Itself what that machinery shall be, subject only to tho fundamental law of the nation ns expressed In tho Constitution of the United States. ; . . In the first place, 1 believe In tho short ballot. You cannot got good service from tho publlo servant If you cannot see him, and thero Is no more effective way of hiding him than by mixing him up with a multitude of others so that they are nono of them Important enough to catch tho eye of tho average, workaday citizen. Tho professional politician and the professional lobbyist thrlvo most rankly under a system which provides a multitude of elective officers, of such divided responsibility and of such obscurity that tho public knows, and can know, but llttlo as to their dune's nnd tho w.ny they perform them. The people have nothing whatever to fear from giving any public servant power so long as they retain their own power to hold him accountable for his uso of tho power they have delegated to him. I believe in providing for direct nominations by tho people, Including therein direct preferential primaries for the election of delegates to tho national nominating conventions. I believe In tho election of United States senators by direct vote. Just as actual experience convinced our should bo people that presidents elected (ns they now are In practice, although not In theory) by direct vote of the people Instead of by direct vote through an untrammeled electoral college, so actual experience has convinced us that senators should be elected by direct vote of tho people instead of indirectly through the vurl-ou- s legislatures. nnd tho I believe In tho initiative referendum, which should be used not to destroy representative government, but to correct It whenever It becomes mlsrcpreeentative. Hero again I am concerned not with theories but with actual facts. If In any state the people are themselves satisfied with their present representative system, then It Is of course their right to keep that system unchanged; and It Is nobody's business but theirs. But in actual practice It has been found in very many states that legislative bodies have not been responsive to the popular will. Therefore I believe that the state should provide for the possibility of direct popular action In order to make good such legislative failure. Wisconsin Method Praised. In a recent speech Governor McGov-erof Wisconsin has described the plan which has been thero adopted. Under this plan the effort to obtain tho law is first to be mndo through the legislature, the bill being pushed as far as It will go; so that the details may be of tho proposed measure threshed over In actual legislative debate. This gives opportunity to perfect It In, form and invites public scrutiny. Then, It the legislature falls to enact It, It can be enacted by the people on their own Initiative, taken at least four months before election. Moreover, where possible, the question actually to be voted on by the people should be made as simple as possible. In short, I believe that the Initiative and referendum should be used not as substitutes tor representative government, but as methods ot making such representative. government really Give the legislature an entirely tree hand; and then provide by the Initiative and referendum that the people shall have power to reverse or supplement the work ot the legislature should It ever become necessary. As to the recall, I do not believe that there Is any great necessity for elective ofit as regards short-terficers. On abstract grounds I was originally inclined to be hostile to It. I know of one case where It was actually used with mischievous results. On the other band, In three cases In municipalities on the Pacific coast which have come to my knowledge it I was used wlfh excellent results. believe it should be generally provided, but with such restrictions as will make it available only when there is a widespread and genuine public feeling among a majority of the voters. There remains the question of the recall of judges. One ot the ablest jurists in the United States, a veteran in service to the people, recently wrote me as follows on this subject: "There are two causes of the agitation for the recall as applied to judges. First, the administration ot Justice has withdrawn from life and become artificial and technical. The recall is not so much a recall ot judges from office as it Is a recall ot tho administration of Justice back to life, so that It Bhall become, as It ought to be, the most efficient of all agencies for making this earth a better place to live in. Judges have set their rules above life. Llko the Pharisees ot old, they said, 'The peoplo be accursed, they know not tho law' (that is our 'rule). Courts have repeatedly defeated the aroused moral sentiment of a whole commonwealth. Take the example of the St. Louis boodlers. Their guilt was plain, and in the main confessed. The whole state was aroused and outraged. By an instinct that goes to the very foundation of all social order they demanded that the guilty be punished. The boodlers were convicted, but the supreme court of Missouri, never questioning their guilt, set their conviction aside upon purely technical grounds. The same thing occurred in California. It Is to recall the administration of Justice back from such practices that the recent agitation has arises. n "Second, by the abuse of the power to declare laws unconstitutional the courts have become a lawmaking, Inagency. stead of a Hero again tho settled will of society to correct confessed evils has been set at naught by thoso who plnco metaphysics abovo llfo. It Is tho courts, trot the constitutions, that are at fault It Is only by tho process which James Bussell Lowell, when answering tho critics of Lincoln, called 'pettifogging tho constitution, that constitutions which woro designed to protect society can thus bo made to defeat tho common good. Hero ngnln the recall Is n rccnll of back of Jiistlco tho administration from academical refinements to social service." Thero Is .one kind of recall In which I very earnestly believe, nnd the Immediate adoption of which I urgo. Thero are sound reasons for being cnutlous about the recall of a good Judge who has rendered an Kvery nnd Improper decision. public servant, no matter how valuable, and not omitting Washington or Uncoln or Marshall, at times makes mistakes. Therefore we should be cautious nbout recalling the judge, nnd wo Bhould be cautious about Interfering In any way with the Judgo In decisions which ho makes In tho ordinary course as between Individuals, nut when n Judge decides a constitutional question, when he decides what tho peoplo ns a whole can or cannot do, the people should havo tbo right to recall that decision If they think It wrong. We should hold the Judiciary In all .respect; but It Is both nbsunl nnd degrading to make a fetish of a Judgo or of nny one else. Lincoln nctunlly applied In successful fashion tho princlplo of tho recall In tho Dred Scott ense. Ho denounced the Supreme court for that Iniquitous decision in languago much stronger than I havo ever used In criticizing nny court, and appealed to the people to recall tho decision the word "recall" In this connection was not thenknown. but the phrnso exactly dcscrlbos what ho advocated. He was successful, tho peoplo took his view, and the decision was practically recnllcd. It became a dead letter without the need of any constitutional amendment. Tho Law and the State. Under our federal system tho remedy for n wrong such as Abrnhnm But Lincoln described Is difficult. the remedy Is not difficult In a state. What tho Supremo court of tho nation decides to be law binds both the national nnd th state courts and all the peoplo within the boundaries of the nation. But tho decision of n stato court on a constitutional question should be subject to revision by the peoplo of the state. Again and again In tho past Justice has been scandalously obstructed by state courts declaring stato laws In conflict with tho Federal Constitution, although the Supremo court of the nation had even decided in a contrary sense. When the supreme court of tho stato declares n given Btntuto unconstitutional because In conflict with tho stato or the National Constitution, Its opinion should be subject to rethemselves. vision by the peoplo Such an opinion ought always to be treated with great respect by the people, and unquestionably In tho majority ot cases would be accepted and But actual exfollowed by them. perience has shown the vital need of the peoplo reserving to themselves the right to pass upon such opinion. If It is sustained well and good. If not, then the popular verdict Is to be accepted as final, the decision is to be treated as reversed, and the construction of the Constitution definitely decided subject only to action by the Supreme court ot tho United States. Many eminent lawyers who more or less frankly disbelieve In our entire American system of government for, by, and of the people violently antagonise this proposal. They believe, and sometimes assert, that the American people are not fitted for popular government, and that It Is necessary to keep the Judiciary "Independent of the majority or of all the people;" that there must be no appeal to the people from the decision ot a court In any case; and that therefore the Judges are to be established as sovereign rulers over the people. I take absolute Issue with all those who bold such a position. I regard It as a complete negation of our whole system of government; and If It became the dominant position In this country, It would mean the absolute upsetting ot both the rights and the rule ot the people. It the American people are not fit for popular government, and If they should of right be the servants and not the masters of the men whom they themselves put In office, then Lincoln's work was wasted and the whole system ot government upon which this great democratic republic rests Is a failure. I believe, on the contrary, with all my heart that the American people are fit for complete and that, in spite of all our fallings and shortcomings, we of this republic have more nearly realized than any other people on earth the Ideal of Justice attained through genuine popular rule. People Fundamentally Right. I do not say that the people are Infallible. But I do say that our whole history shows that the American people are more often sound in their decisions than Is tbo case with any ot the governmental bodies to whom, for their convenience, they have delegated portions ot their power. If this Is not so, then thero Is no Justification for the existence of our government; and if It is so, then there Is no justification for refusing to give the people the real, not merely the nominal, ultimate decision on questions ot constitutional law. un-wis- e but a few A decision rendered months ago by the court of appeal-o- f my own state, the stato of Now York, declared unconstitutional the workmen's compensation act. In their admitted the decision tho Judges wrong and tho suffering caused by thej practices ngalnst which the law was aimed. They admitted that other clv-- 1 lllzcd nations had abolished these wrongs nnd practices. But they tool the ground that tho Constitution ol tho United Stntes, Instead of being an" Instrument to sccttro Justice, had been ingeniously devised absolutely to prevent Justice. Thoy Insisted that the clnnso In tho Constitution which tho taking of property without due process of law forlado tho effort which had been made In tho law to distribute nmong nil tho partners In nn enterprise the effects of tho injuries to llfo or limb of n In other words, they insisted that tho Constitution had permanently cursed our people with Impotence to right wrong, and had perpetuated a cruol Iniquity; for cruel Iniquity is not too hnrsh a term to uso In describing tho law which, In tho event of such an accident, binds tho wholo burden of crippling disaster on tho shoulders least nbjo to bear It tho shoulders of tho crippled man himself, or tho dead man's helpless wlfo and children. No nnnrchlst orator, raving against the Constitution, ever fronted an Indictment to it so severo ns these worthy Judges must be held and to have framed If their reasoning be accepted as true. But, as a matter of fact, their reasoning was unsound, nnd was as repugnant to every sound defender of the Constitution as to every believer in Justlco and righteousness. In effect, their decision was that wo could not rcmeay incse wrongs unless wo amended tho Constitution (not tho constitution of the stato, but the Constitution of tho nation) by snylng that property could be taken without due process of law! It seems Incredlblo that nny ono should be willing to tnko such a position. It Is a posltlou that has been condemned over and over again by tho wisest and courts. In Its essence most It wns reversed by the decision ot r stato courts In states llko Washington and Iown, and by tho Supremo court of tho nation In a case but a fow weeks old. According to ono of tho highest Judges then and now on the Supreme court of the nation, we lind lived for a hundred years under a Constitution which permitted a natlonnl Income tax, until suddenly by ono vote the Supreme court reversed Its previous decisions for a century, nnd said that for a century we had been living under a wrong Interpretation of tho Constitution (that Is, under a wrong Constitution), and thercforo In effect established a new Constitution which wo are now laboriously trying to amend so as to get It back to tho Constitution that for a hundred years everybody, Including tho Supremo court, thought It to be. When I was president, we passed n National Workmen's Compensation act. Under It a railway man named Howard, I think, was killed In Tennessee, and his widow sued for damages. Congress had dono all It could to provldo the right, but the court stepped In and decreed that congress had failed. Three ot the Judges took the extreme position that thero was no way In which congress could secure the helpless widow and children against suffering, and that . tho man's blood and tho blood of allT similar men when spilled should for--j ever cry aloud In vain for justice.! This seems a strong statement, but it Is far less strong than tho actual facts; and I have difficulty In making the statement with any degree or., modification. The nine Justices ot theV Supreme court on this question split Into five fragments. One man, ex Justice Moody, In his opinion stated the case In Its broadest way and demanded justice for Howard, on grounds that would have meant that In all similar cases thereafter Justice and not Injustice should be done. Yet the court, by a majority of one, decided as I do not for one moment believe the court would iow decide, and not only perpetuated a lamentable In justice In the case of the man himself, but set a standard of Injustice for all similar cases. Here again I ask you not to think of the mere legal formalism, but to think ot the great immutable principles ot Justice, the great Immutable principles ot right and wrong, and to ponder what It means to men dependent for their livelihood, and to the women and children dependent upon these men, when the courts of the land deny them the justice to which they are entitled. Now, gentlemen, In closing, and la thanking you for your courtosy, let me add one word. Keep clearly in view what are the fundamental ends ot government. I hope that not only you and I but, all our people may ever remember that while good laws are necessary, while it Is necessary to have the right kind of governmental machinery, yet that the matter Is to have the right kind ot man behind the law. A good Constitution, and good laws under the Constitution, and fearless and upright officials to administer the laws all these aro necessary; but the prime requisite in our national life Is, and must' always bo, the possession by the aver age citizen of the right kind of char f" acter. Our aim must be the morallza-tloof the Individual, of the govern-ment- , ot the people as a whole.
