They won't kill you outright, but they will

A few words more and I will conclude. Our
government Us of the people. It is divide : htto
co-ordinate branches — the Judges of the L'nitau
States courts, who hold office for life or during
good behavior; the Executive; vho Congress,
which consists of two co-ordinate branches, the

body. near to the people, that reflects the senti

Now, then, you know under our form of gov
ernment the party in power Is held responsible.
The function of the minority is to put It on good
behavior by being ever ready to appeal to th*
people. Let me tell you something. If our gov
ernment has a fault, it is when, after an elec
tion, one party Is placed in power on only one
leg. It may have the Senate. It may hnve th*
Presidency. It may have the Hous-v It goes
along on erwsehaa Yet you want to hold It re-
Hponstble for public aanthjaaßt, If 1 had th<»
power I would so charge our Constitution that
