political machine . and the nominees
of another political machine? We
would as leave settle it by the toss
of a cola, because, after one set of
men Is elected to office, they take
their orders from the machine. We
don't like the machine and can't put
It out of business and, therefore, we
cannot get access to our own govern
ment. -And why does the machine try to
conduct its affairs with such separ
ateness from what would seem to be
the very source of its power? Be
cause it has come about that we, the
people, are not the source of their
power; the source of their power Is,
in the main, derived from the men
who are conducting great enterprises
of business. There are men in every
board of trade, for instance, who are'
partners Intimate and constant part
ners with political machines which
the parties they are connected with
are pretending to fight.
