State's Attorney Hoyne had better
call a consultation of physicians and
find out what ails him.
Only a little while ago he was laid
up tvo or three weeks with some
thing or other which he diagnosed
NoW he's just getting back from
West Baden, where he probably went
to fill up on Pluto water.
And it won't be long before he and
other overworked public officials will
be thinking of taking a few months
vacation so as to rest up and be
ready for the world's series this fall.
This is an awfully tired old world
for office-holders, isn't it?
In the meantime the grand jury has
canned Hoyne's assistants and asked
Judge Burke to appoint a special
state's attorney to help 'em inves

up. It calls for so many meetings.
Andy Lawrence and John E.
Owens, county1 judge by grace of
Andy, ought te organize a grand
lodge of sorrow.
After the federal patronage is dis

The Examiner screams its horror
that a voting machine grand juror
was seen talking to -Julius Rosen
We don't know why in thunder
anyone should want to talk to Rosen
wald, but maybe the grand juror
couldn't get out of it.
Anyway, what does it matter? A
grand juror has a right to talk to
Rosenwald or the King of, England
if he feels like; it.
The Springfield newspapers must
have got orders from their adver
tisers for they are roasting Lieut.
Gov. O'Hara and his committee for
lifting the lid down there and yanking
some of Springfield's most prominent
slave-drivers' out into the daylight
where folks can see 'em.
But those Springfield papers are
not onto 'their jobs. Take a tip from
the trust papers of Chicago and start
a fake crusade' against vice and
To help things along, maybe they
can borrow Judge Mahoney for a few
All this time, however, Johnny Ev
ers and his Cubs are fighting right
up there near the top much to the
disappointment of some of the high
brow sport writers.
And it won't be-long until we can
smell the stockyards all over town.
But, then why not look on the
bright side of things?' Ty Cobb has

Harrison had a birthday, Roger Sulli
