being an enemy of the trusts. They
claim there is a clairvoyants' trust.
What is a greater trust than the
H.-H. political trust.
"Hearst says he wants justice. And
yet because he owns 10,000,000 acres
of land in Mexico he wants to plunge
this country into a war so that his
property might be protected.
"Maclay Hoyne is not a policeman.
He is an officer of the court, but so
am I. He has taken the same oath
I have. But through the political

"Why did he kidnap the returning
prisoner from the governor's messen
ger and take him around over three
states so that his friends could not
bring him to court on a writ of
habeas corpus? Mr. Hoyne said he

and Halpin. And the newspa'pers
would be full of sensations and the
red ink supply of the Chicago Exam
iner office would be trebled. And al
so there would have been a new can
didate for governor at the next election."
