Politics Heard on The Streets.

tion. Then there was the ever
prevailing display of misappro
priated English, which naturally
tended to weaken the cause they
were trying to espouse. The
teaciiiugs ot the Bible were free
ly quoted, Shakespeare and
every other peer, were the sour
ces from which elaborated effu
sions were belched forth, embel
lished with saloon phraseology,
etc. And yet we have been ask
ed to do it justice. Well we have.
