His language was rather rough and occasionally shocking to the few young ladies who were taking music classes, though never offensive. Major Smith simply ran a tight ship. . . .

Williams reports that "the organization in Kansas City" is working against the Douglas Supreme Court campaign, but that he believes Douglas will still win the campaign "because right is right and always wins in the end."
