They said: "Of course he will- first care fully overlook the entire field and select an able lawyer for attorney general of the United States, a lawyer whose training has been such that he will be in thorough sympathy with his praise worthy desire. This great lawyer shall be his strong right arm, the hortest blacksmith, as it vero, to fasten the shackles and gyves that the strenuous one had determined to place on cunning trust barons and shrewd monopolists, who, through their greed and avarice, were distressing the people."

Child labor is an evil that should be suppressed outright. It Is a crime against the child, the re public and the human race. This gov ernment is founded on education of the masses. If a child Is forced into the factory by idle parents to support these same parents in idleness and viciousnesa, the state should Impose its merciful arm for the protection of the child. In this state, with its vast educational endowment and its splen did public school system, there Is not a particle of excuse for an Ignorant childhood. If a child grows up to ignorant manhood he becomes a men ace to the state. If It Is permitted the state does him a wrong that cannot be atoned for.
