18 THAT TBUlt
Numbers of Southern business meo,
merchants, bankers, manufacturers,
bate testified that iu voting for Mr.
Bryan they knew that they would be
voting against their own Interests, bat
they voted for bim all the same. ?Phil?
That seems incredible, but If it U
true then the Southern business men
ought to manage somehow or other to
be born again. Isn't there something
positively queer about? man who votos
?against bis own Interests? The verdiot
of tbe Western jury on a murder case
is applicable, "The prisoner is not
guilty, but be mustn't do it again."?
