and irresponsible suffrage." and that

and intelligence. Mr. Julian admits
the political corruption which deforms
the present and clouds the future, but
he asserts that the evil is chargeable to
the vicions leadership of a sophistica
ted and faithless few, rather than to
the vicious propensities, inherent and
ineradical, of the voting many. He de-
