DELIVERS AN ADDRESS BEFORE
ASSEMBLAGE OF LIFE IN
PRAISES HIS EFFORTS TO MAKE
PUBLIC LIFE PURE
MILWAUKEE, July 19.—Jnatfce
David Brewer of the United States
supreme court delivered a short ad
dress before a large assemblage of life
insurance agents in the Masonic
building in this city tonight. He
devoted most of his talk to modern
graft, and praised President Roose
velt in his efforts to make pubic affairs
pure and honest.
"This has been a year which may
be chaacteri/ed as one of great irsor
euce upheaval," he said. "The re
fcult has been prejudicial to the in
terests of a certain company and
also to the interests and business of
others. I believe this will result iv
great benefit iv insurance through
out the world.
"The moment private pecuniary
gain is sought throgh the advantage
of a trust someone is guilty of graft
I have reference to the more insid
ions ways that the one holding pnblic
office is carrying on his duties of
tint office for his own gains or the
gain of his own ends.
"Take the president of the United
States. Along iv the winter Santo
Domingo pat itslelf on a financial
footing. Suppose the presiident had
acted secretly and advised his friends
to buy up Santo Domingo bonds.
Wouldn't that shook the people of the
oountry? Yet the government would
lose nothing aud some would be pri
vate gainers' Suppose the United
States supreme court justices would
give out information in advance of
cettain decisions. Wonld not you re
volt at such a transaction? It would
be unworthy—this would be grafting.
