"A co-operative association designed to furnish labor for farming operations is clearly within the realm of practical achievement."
"Government itself is founded upon the great doctrine of the consent of the governed, and has its cornerstone in the memorable principle that men are endowed with inalienable rights."
"I never saw a woman to come into one of our mining camps in California but her mere presence effected a change in the conduct of all the men there."
