annually, the public can see the use made
of these funds. Each member of the

copy of the Daily Ohio State Journal at

No person hostile in opinion to the

will l e allowed to stand for office in the

of his treasonable intent to warrant his
arrest. lie who desires the overthrow
of the Government can seek office under
the Government only to promote its
overthrow. In seekinsr office he becomes
an active traitor, if he has never become
one otherwise, and is liable both in rea
