And this happoned tho vory first
Monday nfter that G. O. J uarmonj

and Ilcrrlck admitted for tho first
time that thoro was "alloged graft"

This is not tho specific charge of
graft which Harris, as governor,
helped Wado Ellis and others to try
to cover up. Out Slator was ono of

about "nllegod graft" at tho stato

beforo he got Into tho governor's of

paign of 1008. Harris and Horricu
denied it from tho campaign opening
at Youngstnwn until oloctlon flay.
For six months aftor Harmon's in

"This Is from a report f tho Ro
publlrnn pow-wow at Dayton: "Al
leged graft In, tlio stato houso wus
given somo attention in tho mooting
of tho Ohio longuo of Republican
clubs Saturday morning. Attornoy
General Donmnu nnd former Gover

upotches that if Hopubllcan stato of
ficials woro crookod it wan tho party's
first duty to cloan 'om out.''
How many did Governor Harris
clean out? How many did, aovornor
Horrlck clean out?
After Horrlck and Harris had b 911
governor It bocuno ono of tho par.y's
first dull s to oloct aovornor Harmon
to do the cleaning out. And tho vot

Governor Harmon, back him up by

Harris had a ltopulillcau legisla

Ii l'4 nlmout a .miracle that Hurrls
and Herrlck would "glvo soiuh at

righteous indignation! huh? And
Cox is going to "light" tho Ellis
reglmo! Zoundsl and 'sdoatht and
'sbloodi and other stago exclama
tions. But Ellis Is not going to have his
headquarters at Columbus. Nay.
nay. Ho will have an "ofTlco" at
Cincinnati, and ho will "practice law"
and because ho Is to hold on tc
somo of his trust-busting cases, as
'special counsel" for the administra

Wado Ellis kcop so closo In touch

And where could Cox successfully
"fight" Ellis, after giving him all
tho political Jobs ho over held in
Cincinnati and Columbus nna send
ing him as one of tho Cincinnati
delegates to the Iloosevclt-Taft
steamroller convention at Chicago,
excopt In Cincinnati?
Groat "fight"! great sham battle!
All of which, wo aro told, is pre
liminary to another sham which El
lis Is going to try to work oit on
tho pooplo of Ohio to tho effect that
"tho new Republican leader would
bo glad to load Cox and tho odium
of his political methods on the back
of the Democrats, and particularly
on Governor Hnrmon; that Cox and
his organization within a fow weeks,
will bo charged with having formed
an Innultlous nlllanco with Governor
Harmon, nnd vice versa."
So Wado Is to start off with bun
combe nnd a bunco gamo llko that.
Groat "fight"! great sham battle!
groat Johosaphat ngnln but, most of
all, great sham!
