In England cr Russia, or any self-respecting
country of the earth, fighting for its life, Lewis
would face a firing squad.
! What a consuming pity that America, fighting
: tor its life, is not a self-respecting country.
One wonders where is the spirit of America
that burned in the breasts of George
*.on, Andrew Jackson, Patrick Henry, Grover
Cleveland and Theodore Hoosc-velt.
If the congress is without guts or patriotism,
let them come home and raise chickens and pigs.
The red-blooded South is speaking from Flor

the law and punished. Let us have an end of
milk and cider.
See the sinister silhouette of this detestable ex
crescence, this carbuncle, this cyst, this intoler
able thing that would impede our way in the
fight for our liberty and our homes.
And see the supineness with which congress
beholds him in his arrogance, his brutal greed,
his seizure of oower, his contempt of law.
