cease. The speech caused a sensation
nmong tho 177 congressmen nt tho St.
Ixnils meeting, who regarded it as a
direct Blnp at tho speaker.
Somobody wanted to know of
Spcnker Cannon before he sailed what
ho thought of tho fight tho insurgents
wero making ngainst him. "Get out
your pencil and write this down,"
said ho, which was done, as follows;
"Old Paul, you will recollect if you re
fer to his Joumoy, finally Btruck an at
titude and said: 'I havo been impris
oned, punished wjth stripes, met with
robbers on ono hand' nnd have been
shipwrecked and have met tho beast
of Ephesus, hut nono of nil these
could discourage me.' That is nil."
