DEPARTMENT STORE OWNERS MADE
TO SEEM PERJURERS BY TRIBUNE
They're Not Bless Your Heart! They Never
"Opposed" Unions They Just Hate 'Em So
Bad It Makes 'Em Bilious.
Henry M. Hyde, who writes ar
ticles for the Tribune with one hand
and runs a farm in Virginia with the
other, stated in the Tribune yester
day that "the State Street depart
ment stores are opposed to the form
ation of unions among their em
ployes." Now, since Henry M. Hyde, here
tofore has spoken with u tongue of
brass, in the name of the business
men, this statement, coming from
him, was indeed interesting.
There was a time when The Day
Book itself was fully convinced that
"the State Street department stores
are opposed to the formation of un

But that, of course, was before
the high-minded multi-millionaires
who own the State Street depart
ment stores took the stand and swore
before God that they did not and
never had opposed the formation of
.unions among their employes.
It would hardly be meet for any
one, without definite proof, of course,
to believe that such honorable gen
tlemen of business as Dapper Jimmie
Simpson of Marshall Field & Co., Joe
Basch of Siegel Cooper & Co., Ed
Lehmann of The Fair or -John T.
Pirie of Carson, Pirie, Scott & Co.
had perjured themselves.
Such indeed, is almost impossible
of belief. Surely such honorable gen
tlemen as these would not perjure
themselves before a commission in
the name of the people over such a
.simple little matter as this.
Wherefore, was Henry M. Hyde's
article in the Tribune so highly in
teresting, especially since Hyde al
ways heretofore has spoken by, with
and from th)e business, and the Trib
une is so business-like a newspaper.
So a reporter for The Day Book,
