What is the main idea in "The Man That Corrupted Hadleyburg"?

One theme is that everybody is vulnerable to corruption.
Another statement could be that true virtue does not depend on one's reputation but upon one's inner integrity - choosing to do what is right even when "nobody is looking." (And if that be the case, is anybody left to do the head count?)
