    "God give us men of such a type as the time demands.

    Strong minds, great hearts, true faith and willing hands;

    Men whom the lust of office does not kill;

    Men whom the spoils of office cannot buy;

    Men who possess opinions and a will;

    Men who have honor; men who will not lie;

    "Men who can stand before a demagogue

    And damn his treacherous flatteries without winking;

    Tall men, sun crowned, who live above the fog

    In public duty and in private thinking;

    For while the rabble with their thumb worn creeds,

    Their profession and their little deeds

    Mingle in selfish strife; lo; Freedom weeps;

    Wrong rules the land, and waiting justice sleeps."
