Tha President la represented aa viewing the question aa one of good moral, and It la pointed out that be would hardly heap further honor upon a man who opposed him on a mora! la sue. Were the mutter one merely of expediency, 'here would be no Incon turtency In hi making Mr. Cortelyou Secretary of the Treasury, no matter how sharply hi view might differ from thrnie of the President; but the President would "hardly place a man in that position whom ha considered ' morally deficient Accepted opinion, - therefore, la disposed to cellminate Mr. Cortelyou a a determined opponent of ; the plan of restitution. . j With Mr. Blls the cane might bei different, Mr. Bliss belong to the ; , Mark Hanna school of politic, and the Hanna theory waa alway that uch contribution were 'untitled, tnk- ' Ing the ground that general prosperity depended on Republican tucces at the polls and that when a corporation contributed It was merely paying a premium on properlty Insurance, the same aa It would Inaure against fire or other destructive agencies. Viewed In this light, contribution by the In surance companle did not constitute a fraud upon the policyholders, but were rather a wise Investment In their Interest. Having accepted uch contributions, Mr. Btlsa might very well oppose re- tltutlon on the score that It would be a confession of wrong doing In the ac ceptance.
