DAILY COMMENT ON
Chief McWeeny wants 1,500
more cops. Why not first try
using the ones we have?
It's too bad Illinois Democrats
didn't get a chance to read that
fool letter of Ham Lewis before
they voted for him for senator.
That primary vote is the only
possible excuse for any real Dem
ocrat voting for him; unless
somebody is fond of pink
whiskers.
It's easy enough to blame the
Juul law for that cut in the wages
of firemen and policemen, but
somehow or other, it didn't cut
the big salaries of the job-holders
higher up.
Every time we read about Jul
ius Rosenwald, handing out a few
thousand dollars to something or
other, and getting his name in the
paper, we wonder what kind of
wages he pays the help out at the
Sears-Roebuck plant.
O fudge, girls, Lil Russell says
you mustn't chew gum. Ain't it
awful ?
Which reminds us that when
Miss Lillian Russell came to Chi
cago this trip she brought Mr.
Lillian Russell with her. Still
carries her own scenery.
Shopper We can't tell you
why Siegel-Cooper hire negro
elevator men or negroes to boss
the job and pack white folks into
the elevators. It may be that they

may be that the management
likes the color effect. Anyhow,

PEOPLE AND THINGS
we presume the help at the Con

grub they serve in the Pompeiian
grill.
Willie Hearst's Democratic
candidates at tomorrow's primar

perior judge ; John A. Richert, for
city treasurer, and Jos. M. Coffey,
for city clerk. The leading anti
Hearst candidates are John M.
O'Connor, for judge; Michael J.
Flynn, for treasurer, and Francis
D. Connery, for clerk. Take your
choice.
The Hearst outfit endorses Aid.
McKenna and Powers for the
simple reason that there is no
chance to beat either of them.
But it doesn't mean that they
wear the Hearst label.
The Municipal Voters' league,
or Moovies for short, have brand
ed McKenna and Powers as "un
fit." They should worry and get
elected anyhow.
Now the mayor has told the
firemen and cops how to vote,
they can go into the booth to
morrow and vote as they darned
please.
After all it's safer to be an um
pire than the president of Mex
ico. Ortie McManigal, the informer,
is going to write a book. To ease
his conscience perhaps.
Sarah Bernhardt acted for the
1,900 convicts of San Quentin
penitentiary.
Whenever Lillian Russell or
some other freak of the stage
makes one sick of the theater and
all its works, one's mind turns to
