would do its regulatjng of vice,
saloons, cafes and dance halls in
a properly secret manner, and re
port on its work to a boss or his
agents in an equally secret man
ner. Secretly, the secret service
branch could regulate all the vot
ing in the vice districts, all tne
voting of the saloon hangers on,
all the voting of the gambling
crowd, all the voting of the cafe
crowd and all the voting of the
dance hall outfit.
Secretly also the secret service
branch could regulate the cam
paign contributions of the afore
'said well-known Chicago activi
ties. Unquestionably Andy, is a
great little schemer, although the
people may yet have something to
say about this idea of secretly fix
ing it up so some boss might be
able to control all the various
forms of vice in the city. He
taught to patent his idea before
some other would-be political
bo'ss grabs it off.
But who would be boss and

A FAKE UNION SHEET
In order to deceive honest
union workers, the Hearst papers
are again quoting from the so
called Union Labor Advocate.
Recently the executive board
,of the Chicago Federation of La
jbor, in a report that was adopted
fby the federation, had the follow-
ing to say about this alleged
union sheet: l
"1. A. A. Allen, editor and
publisher of the so-called Union
Labor Advocate, has never, be-t
longed to any labor union.
"2. He is one individual and 0
js responsible to no labor organ
ization for anything or whatso
ever he may see fit to publish.
"3. The so-called Labor Union
Advocate has practically no paid
circulation, and is not even per- t
mitted the privileges of second
"4 When the so-called Union
Labor Advocate says that 'it -charges
itself with the high duty '
of alike defending it when it is , t
right and condemning i$ when it ;
is wrong,- that it depends on -
which side has the price to pay
for this high duty of defending it
when it is right and condemning
it when it is wrong.
"We therefore recommend that
the secretary be hereby instruct
ed to notify all political parties
and advertisers of the real stand
ing of the .so-called-Union Labor
Advocate with organized labor, ,
as herein reported."
Quoting from a sheet like that
in order to fool union workers is
evidently one of Hearst's favorite
dirty' tricks in his fight against $

Advocate, but it makes a noise -
like Hearst just the same.
