Doesn't it look as if Justiceyought to look to those scales have
them oiled, or renovated, or something?
Of cdure, it's just possible that Justice can prove an alibi.
Maybe she wasn't present at( and had nothing to do with the
elevation of Christian C. Kohlsaat to the bench. ' ,
Which calamity possibly happened in this wise:
H. H. Kohlsaat, publisher of the Record-Herald, was very good
to McKinley, Mark Hanna & Co., during the McKinley presiden
So when McKinley became president, Mark Hanna1 came to
H. H. and asked him what he'd like, to have for a birthday present.
"Who; me?" asked H. H. "why I don't want a thing.
"But," he added, hastily, "I have, a brother who hasn't much'
of a job, and who thinks he'd like to "be a federal judge."
Yes, Justice might be able to prove an alibi in the case of
Christian C. Kohlsaat, judge of the United States Circuit court.
P. S. The price of meat is still up. Probably it will go higher
to pay the fees of the attorneys who worked that cute habeas
corpus .gag on Judge Kohlsaat.
