By the way, I dare State's Attorney Hoyne to ask the victims of the
swindling clairvoyants what newspapers they read the advertisements in
that tempted them to go to the thieving clairvoyants and get skinned:-
In the meantime I have this to suggest to Statejt's Attorney Hoyne:
Quit bragging about what you're going to do. Just go ahead and do it
Then do your talking afterward.
To Miayor Harrison: Give the honest cops a chance. Make it plain
just what you want the police to do. Then stand by those who obey orders
and fire those who don't. Don't bother your head about the newspapers.
The people, without regard to party, will back you up in every honest
endeavor.' There are more honest men than crooks in Chicago, and honest
citizens will stand by and go the full route with an honest mayor. Let the
newspapers go hang. Be mayor yourself. Your father licked the whole
bunch of 'em.
To all newspaper publishers: Forget your infernal politics. Quit
knocking Chicago. Boost. Back up Mayor Harrison in every move he
makes for the public good. There's a whole lot of good in the people of this
town. While you're hunting for the evil, try to find some of the good. Try
running your papers for the people instead of for your advertisers. Forget
your darned money-making a while and try tp do something for humanity.
Get it out of your .fool heads that you can forever pull the wool over the
eyes of your readers. Print the truth. Take a chance and try being honest.
To all Chicago knockers: Go 'way back and sit down.

and Secretary of the Navy Daniels
vigorously denied today that there
was any intention of mobilizing the
U. S. army and navy because of the
fear of war with Japan over the Cal
To allay any such belief, the presi
dent has ordered that all routine
movements of troops and supplies be
stopped. The sending of coast artil
lery to Hawaii may be countermand
ed, though it is insisted that the
movement has nothing to do with the
jingo war talk.
At the cabinet meeting today the
California situation was the main
topic of discussion. It is probable the
administration will take no action
until Gov. Johnson signs the anti
alien land bill, and thus brings mat
ters to a crisis, giving the Japanese
government something tangible upon
which ta base its- protests.

suspicion pointing toward his widow,
-the inquest into the death of Rear

The presence as a witness of
Charles L. Estes, a Rockland, drug
gist, and the statement of District
