Tuesday, May 14 1908 -- With the Dems having just nominated for president the man known as the Great Commoner, of whom it was claimed --
Without an organization to urge his claim; without a campaign fund to circulate literature in his behalf; without patronage to bribe a single voter; without a predatory corporation to coerce its employees into his support; without a subsidized newspaper to influence the public mind.
The Republicans are busily putting together a vast war chest, subsidized in no small part by J. P. Morgan and other monopolist lions of business, all to put the man they are certain will be their obedient puppet into the White House. Is it any wonder the Great Commoner was trounced over and over in his presidential bids?
