"At one railroad station, a lion
ate up the agent and when the next

The superintendent, an Englishman,
took a German and an Italian with him
and went out there to kill the Hon.
They went to sleep, and the lion came
nnd ate up the Englishman. All through
the night the German and the Italian
could hear the dreadful "purring of the
lion as it ate the Englishman."

Before he departed he gave the chil

The Big Speech.
Eighteen thousand people stood up,
cheered, screamed and waved handker
chiefs as Col. Roosevelt ame upon the
platform of Convention hall in this city
last night. Thousands of people had
been turned away from the doors of
the big hall after every seat and all
standing room had been occupied.
Col. Roosevelt, coming to the front
of the platform stood rigidly erect as
he was given an ovatfon, his counte
nance fixed in sternness. Gov. Hadley,
appearing shortly afterward, was at
once recognized and was given an
equally enthusiastic greeting by the
President William T. Bland, of the
Kansas City Commercial club which
had just entertained the colonel at din
ner, then introduced him.
"It was Roosevelt," he said, "who
awakened the public which had already
slept too long. I might almost say he
created public conscience.'
Restless in waiting for colonel
Roosevelt's speech, the great audience
began- shouting "Teddy."
Insisting upon further compliment
ing the - guest of honor, Mr. Bland
"The nation owes to him an infi
nite debt of gratitude."
Referring to the colonel's career in
the Spanish war, shouts and cheers
again filled the big hall.
Convention Han Packed.
Mr. Roosevelt being presented, the
great audience again arose and cheered
and thousands of handkerchiefs and
hats were waved in the air.

Mr. Roosevelt said:
"There are certain matters which
should never be treated as party mat
ters; and foremost among these is the
great and vital virtue of honesty. Hon
esty should be treated as a prime ne
cessity to our success as a nation,. The
minute that a question of honesty as
against dishonesty Is involved, then we

j without the slightest regard to party
! affiliations. Honesty is not a party
i matter; and the first man to attack a
scoundrel of any party should be the
honest men of that party. When in of
fice, I always proceeded upon the the
ory that there would be no need of my
opponents' raising the cry of "Turn the
rascals out," because I would turn them
out myself just as soon as, by vigilant
and intelligent Industry, I could discov
After the Crooks.
"As we dealt with the crooked public
officials, whether Kansas of Oklahoma,
so we deal with the crooked
private citizen; with the rich 'swindler
in New York or Chicago as with the
horse .thief or homicide in Indian Ter
ritory. We never attacked a man be
cause he was a man of one political
faith or another, because he did or did
not possess wealth; and we never
shielded him because he was poor or
rich, because he belonged to any par
ticular church or to any particular
party. But I also wish you especially
to remember that we, never hesitated to
shield him andstand up for him once
we were convinced that he was Improp
The Character Assassin.
There is no greater foe of "honesty
than the man who, for any reason, in
any capacity, attacks, or seeks to at
tack, an honest man for a crime which
he has not committed. Falsely accus
ing an honest man of dishonesty is an
act which stands on the same level of
infamy with that of the dishonest man
himself; and it is no higher duty to at
tack the dishonest man than it is to
exonerate the honest, man falsely accus
ed; and I should beashamed to hesitre
the fraction of a. second longer in one
case than in the other.
One Measure For All.
"Remembvr that honesty cannot bo
unilateral. Good citizens should cor
dially di-tru;5t the man who 'can never
see dishonesty except in men of the
class he dislikes. The reckless agita
tor who Invariably singles out men of
wealth as furnishing the only examples
of dishonesty; and the equally unscru
pulous but no more unscrupulous re
actionary who can see dishonesty only
in a blackmailing politician or a crookT
ed labor leader; both stand on the same
plane of obnoxlousness. You will never
get honesty from politicians until you
exact honesty from business men. On
the other hand, you brand yourselves
as fools or as hypocrites if you say
that the corporation owner, or the em
ployer, is always the dishonest man and
the poor man never, that it is only the
wealthy man who corrupts the politi
cian and never the politician who black
mails the corporation.
"Any man In his senses knows that
there are plenty of corporations in this
country who prosper by bribing legis
latures, just" as they prosper by swin
dling the p.ublic: and any man in his
senses ought to know, in addition, that
there are plenty of corrupt men of
small means who, in legislative or other
bodies, try to blackmail corporations
and try to blackmail other people as
well. If they doubt this, let them look
at the revelations of corruption in my
own state New York and in yours,
my hearers here in Missouri; let them
look at what has occurred in Califor
nia and what has occurred In Illinois.
In Illinois, for instance, one of the ras
calities developed by the recent investi
gation was the existence of a combina
tion of legislators who blackmailed
fishermen along a cer.taln river, forcing
them to pay to prevent legislation
which would have interfered with their
The Real Dangerous 3Ien.
"Now,, scoundrels who do these
things are, of course, the very men who,
on the one hand, will blackmail a cor
poration, if they got a chance.l and. on
the other hand, will cheerfully, if the
chance occurs, sell themselves to that
corporation against the Interests of the
public. Their corruption is no more
due to the action of the corporations
than the corruption of the corporations
Is duo to their action; and evil, and
not good, is done by the honest but mls-n-nfdftfi
man who would persuade you
that either fact is true. Our duty is
to war with equal sternness against tne
corrupt man of great wealth and the
-moii -,-!- mnifM n trad of corruD-
! tion; our 'fight Is against both the
swindling corporation and tne oiacK
mailing or bribe-taking politician.
Must Campaign Equally.
"We cannot afford to limit a cam
paign against corruption to those who
happen to have a certain social status.
We need laws which shall put the cor
poration out of business, so far as con
cerns corrupting the servants of the
public and betraying the rights of the
public. I believe that the great issue
now before the people Is the doing
away with special privilege In all Its
forms; doing away with the power of
the big corporation to control legisla
tion in Its interests and to interfere
In politics in order to secure privileges
to which it is not entitled.- But I re
gard the essential factor in this cam
paign as being an aroused civic con
science which will unsparingly condemn
dishonesty In every form, and in every
man, high or low.
"The reckless, would-be reformer,
who, in speaking or writing, seeks to
persuade us that we need pay heed to
corruption only when it shows itself in
the rich man. is doing as great a moral
wrong as the rich man whose low moral
standard tends to lower the moral
standard of the whole community. The
people of this country will get justice
from the corporations only if they both
do justice to them and rigidly exact It
''Unless they do justice to rich men,
they put a premium upon injustice and
dishonesty among rich men. Let us
hold them to the strictest accountability
for any wrong doing: but let us insist
upon honesty in our own ranks, no less
than theirs: let us war on crookedness
of every kind in the man of small
means' as well as the man of large
means. Let us judge each man by his
conduct, and not by his social or finan
