This country la suffering more- from
tainted politics than from any other
malady at tho present time. There is
scarcely a campaign speech made, a
platform demand written or a mea
sure enacted Into law that does not
carry the taint of personal gain of
aome politician or political faction
There la more "blue sky" In cam
paign promises of many politicians
running for office than was ever con
tained in the prospectuses of the bold
est promoters of chimerical business
schemes. There are more secret com
binations formed by politicians In the
name of "M y Country" than were ever
formed under any and all other
aliases. There are more political re
bates hidden In the phrase "Be It en
acted" than were ever concealed un
der any and all other disguises.
The Inordinate thirst for political
power and unrestrained passion for
mastery has caused more distress in
this nation than tbe greed for gold,
and It ought to be regulated by law.
No business combination ever pursued
their competitors as relentlessly or
visited more heartless cruelty upon
their customers than a political party
that seeks to make Junk of an In
dustry, or cripple a business for party
success, through tariff measures, po
litical supervision and ofttimes de
structive legislation. Many political
platforms are as alluring to the voter
as the story of the rainbow with Its
pot of gold and their consummation
about as far-fetched. Self gain Is the
first law in politics. There are many
men In office today who, If they
could not shake plums off the tree of
American liberty or cut a melon taken
from Uncle Sam's commissary, would
have less desire to serve the public
The country is surfeiting with patri
ots, who will bare their breast to bul
lets in defense of their country, but
there are few men In public life who
will bare their breast to voters or run
the gauntlet of party disfavor in de
fense of agriculture or Industry. No
representative of the people, who will
permit personal prejudice to dethrone
Justice, party success to disfranchise
reason or the rancor of a political
campaign to influence Judgment can
render capable service.
The preservation of our prosperity
depends upon wisdom, courage and
honesty In government, and the Amer
ican voter should seek these attri
butes as implicitly as the W ise Men
followed the Star of Bethlehem and
they will often be found to rest over
the stable; the plow or the staff of
the Shepherd. The surest euro for
tainted politics and machine rule Is
fresh air and sunshine and these im
portant elements are most abundant
upon the farm, and when farmers,
bankers and merchants are elected to
membership In legislative bodies, much
o f the trouble in government will dis
