"According to this, the faithfiil pub

The Governor referred to the investi
gations of erooT-ieduess in the several
I-.ig titica of the country; to the pnrt
oCIce scandal at Washington and to
the land fraud investigations now in
progress in this stale.
The Governor claimed that there was
no politics in the national nastiness in j
public, otfice. lie. said thoy eouid not 1
properly fce laid at the door of any
particular party. One party could not j
be Llamcd and the .other go scott-free, I
be said. "There is uo politics among'
tuicves. There is unanimity aiiiong
scoundrels. In a, Democratic p-trong-
hold, the scoundrels are Dcuioer&ts. in
a itepublican stronghold, the criminals
are of that partv :iiliation. In nation-
al affairs, te it said to our shame of
citizenship, that, the criminal are of
both parties." And the people.are them
selves to Mame for it all." .
