A pitiful exhibit

Newspaper article questioning Representative Dalzell's accusation that William Bourke Cockran accepted money to campaign for William McKinley in 1896. Dalzell has only succeeded in raising Cockran's profile. His accusation cannot be proven and if it could, it would only damage Dalzell's own Republican Party.
