It knows that the business of the country has been chiefly promoted in recent years by enterprises organized on a great scale, and that the vast majority of the men connected with ·what we have come to call big business f*re honest, incorruptible and patriotic. "The country may be certain that it is clear to members of the senate as it is clear to all thoughtful men that those who have tried to make Ms business what it ought to be. are the men to be encouraged and honored, whenever they respond w i t h o u t reserve to the call of public service.
