What is OCR?


Thumbnail for

the sort of charity that opens the
gates of heaven.
Indicting Armour fr Co, seems
to be one of the harmless amuse
ments of the local federal authori
ties. Of course, there had to be some
rottenness in the esteemed Eigh
teenth ward last Tuesday.
The activities of Mr. Louis
Quitman, late of Andy Law
rence's staff, deserve the intense
attention of the people of Chi
cago. Pete Bartzen's attorney says
that naughty Pete is liable to beat
A. A. McCormick up if McCor
mick tries to be president of
Pete's board.
Thus following out the line of
political action laid down by
Judge Owens at the last Cook
county Democratic convention.
Not having had the excitement
of a murder or two in the pre
election days, the newspaper
thugs seem to have turned their
attention to the gentle art of big
amy. Now is the time for all good
Democrats to rush for their share
of the patronage and spoils of of
fice. Speaking of Dr. Jekyll and Mr.
Hyde, how about "Robert O.
Harland" and Louis M. Quit
man? Insurance companies' probably
consider the manager pf a base
ball club about the same risk as a
Turkish general.
As a Democrat, Andy Lawrence
is a greater booster of the Social-isUticket.
Several gentlemen '"mentioned J
for the vice presidential nomina
tion on the Republican ticket" are
reported to be considering get
ting out an injunction.
You've got to hand it to Mor
mon Reed Smoot. He's the only
one of the old guard who deliv
ered. Smoot seems to have as good
a stranglehold on Utah as Bar
ney Grogan got on the Eigh
teenth ward, through the kind ef
forts of the reformers who re
distributed Chicago's wards and
precincts. x
Living in Gary and being a
bribe taker appear to mean just
about the same thing.
Sad indeed is the case of the
Sherlock Holmes who disguised
himself as a convict at Jackson;
Mich., so effetcively that the
guards did not know him and
Hogged him.
THOSE HUNGRY TURKS
Goodness gracious those
Turks are human beings after all,
even if they are not Christians.
When asked to get up on their
hind legs and fight off the infidel
invaders, the Turkish soldiers ex
claimed: "Fight? Give us bread."
The very idea of asking for
bread when they were promised
immortality -if they, would only
fight like the dickens and get
killed.
But then it doesn't agree with
some folks either to fight or eat
dill pickles on an empty stomach.
All the same it's very incon
venient for kipgs and sultans
when their common soldiers stop
being killed long enough to ask
for bread.
