MARK TWAIN FOR LOW.
Sends His Opinion of a Vote for Tammany to Women's Municipal League.
Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) has written a letter to the Woman's Municipal League on the subject of the impending election, in which he says:
"I should think that any humane and honest person would rather be convicted of one robbery and one murder than become a cold and deliberate confederate in wholesale robbery and wholesale murder by voting a Tammany ticket.
"Certainly, if anything is proven up to the hilt, Tammany's financial history and health statistics of 1901 prove that Tammany's especial and remorseless trade is wholesale pillage and wholesale destruction of health and life."
