If it isn't constitutional, Bill
iTaft will probably throw a fit
when he reads Teddy's speech in
favor of the recall of judges.
'For Bill loves judges. He was
a kind of 'a judge himself once.
But Taft wont play solitaire in
the fit-throwing game. Big Busi
ness will get black, in the face, and
twitch and squirm with horror.
For Big Biz likes crooked
judges especially crooked U. S.
judges who were wished on the
bench by crooked business and
crooked politics for life.
The powerful grafter who piles
up millions by watering stock,
stealing railroads, grabbing fran
chises and otherwise robbing the
people, needs crooked judges in
his crooked business.
These judicial crooks got so
all-fired crooked that they began
to run the government the peo
ple's government for the bene
fit of the big thieves who rob'bed
the people.
Hence all this outcry from the
people for the recall which
means the right of the people to
kick judges off the bench, when
they go wrong.
So when Teddy 'boosts the re
call, Big Business will howl for
him to quit kicking Wall 'street's
judicial dawg aroun'.
Go to it, .Teddy kick that
judicial dawg aroun' some more!
