HARRY'S ARGUMENT WAS
Harry C. Fall has been a resi
dent at ,the Bridewell off and qn
for three years. He" just got out
two days ago' and yesterday
thought he'd try a cute new stunt
He decided he'd be a.runion
newsboy and raise funds from' a
genrous and sympathetic public
to help a just cause. a
Harry started in at Van Buren
and Dearborn streets; and tackled
ever passerby that didn't look
like a business man for money to
help fight Mayor Andy Law
rence and the publishers' trust.
He did real well at first, and
was just wondering what lobster
palace he would patronize that
night when W. F. Kramer, gen
eral secretary of the Brotherhood
of Blacksmiths, blew along.
Kramer looked good to Harry.
Harry broached him.
"Sure," said Kramer, Tm de
cent. I'll help the newsboys out.
Got your card with you?" ' -
Harry did not' have his card
with-him. Kramer strolled on un
til he met two real newsboys.
"Know that fellow?" he asked,
nodding to Harry.
The real newsboys did not.
Kramer called a cop, and Harry,
quite unwilling, journeyed to
Clark Street Police Station.
Today Harry was brought be
fore Municipal Judge Beitler to
answer for his sins, or, to be more
correct, a portion of his sins.
Harry was charged with beg
ging, and, strange as it may seem,
none of the facts recorded above
-came-out at the trial.
