 By Peter Peppercorn. Tune-"Things I Don't Like to See."

Though Janus-faced men by the thousand are found,
 And hundreds of hypocrites canting around;
 But class them together, the great And the small,
 The sneaking informer's the worst of them all.
 Let him go where he will he's an unwelcome guest;
 All honest men shun him as a spy and a pest;
 A coward that is always in trouble and fear.
 The sneaking informer's despised everywhere.

 The informers are coming, look out, look out!
 The sneaks on a Sunday are always about;
 Beware of the frauds-but if they should come near,
 Help the rascals along with a kick in the rear.

 The reason they took to the Informer's trade,
 Is because they have always of work been afraid;
 And now, Judus like, they are paid by the kirk
 To do on a Sabbath their honorable work.
 In skulking around as Informer and spy
 To trap the unwary by fraud on the sly;
 But treat them with swill if they ask you for beer­The sneaking informer's despised everywhere.-Chorus.

 From saloon And tavern such bummers expel.
 And treat with contempt their employers as well;
 If allowed to continue, how long will there be
 Any freedom left in the land of the free?
 Be united and firm And let no party draw
 Your vote if it upholds the obnoxious law
 That deprives workingmen on a Sunday of cheer.
 But the sneaking informer boycott everywhere.- Chords.
