Yes, the police are closing some
of the joints where women sit
with the men and drink red liquor
but not all of thenv-Son. No,
not all of them.. . .
The swell joints are not-closed.
If you have good clothes), you can
still buy booze in the Congress
hotel, the College Inn and other
swell hotels and restaurants.
Here's the way the famous
Vice Commission explains it in
its report on The Social Evil in
Chicago:'
"Unfortunately there are two
standards, oftmorality in Chicago.
One standard permits and ap
plauds dances bfwomen almost
naked in certain public places un
der the guise, of art, and con
demns dances no worse before au
diences from the less prosperous
walks of life.
"This same hypocritical atti
tude drives the 'unfortunate and
often poverty-stricken prostitute
from the street, and at the same
time tolerates and often welcomes
the silken clad prostitute in the
public drinking places of several,
of -the most pretentious hotels
and restaurants of the city.
"Houses of prostitution patron
ized by the lowly are closed at va
rious times for various reasons,
but the gilded palaces of sin pat
ronized by the wealthy are im

the extent of being saved the hu

If you haven't the big price, you
are vicious when you do these
things. But if you are wealthy

buy wine instead of beer, then you
can go to one of the swell resorts
and go almost as far as you like.

MILITIAMAN FREED
Jackson, Mich., Nov. 23.
Judge Parkinson today quashed
the cases against Captain Black-
man and Private Jackson of thq
state militia.
Blackman and Jackson werd
charged with the murder of Jphn.
Eisy.
Eisy, a foreigner, wandered
near the Jackson pen walls during:
the riots there. Blackman and
Jackson called on him to halt,
Eisy did not understand. He was
frightened and ran away, and thd
two militiamen emptied thein
weapons into his body. He died.
In quashing the cases agains
Blackman and Jackson, Judge
Parkinson said:
"I doubt if the military author
ities had any powento arrest
Eisy. I d?ubt if Eisy committed
any offense. But there is no use
in trying these men since Gov
Osborn has said that he will imr
mediately pardon them if theyj
are convicted."
