THE GHOST OF MAHONS.

lustrations of political bosses and the
fall of so many bigger men than Ma

Ci rtainly everybod) in politics, even a
ero-- road- statesman, oughl to know
tha*' men like Roscoe < .inkling have
declined in a day from great influence to

refused to honor their drab- for oil;.

respect of hi- own. or by reflection from

time is near at hand when Hie people
will awaken io the horrible absurdity of
the fact that they have Leen ihe \ j
of a stupendous misrepresentation p. r
petrated with the cry of ''Mahone, Ma?
