DAILY COMMENT ON
Jack Artie Johnson has our per
mission to stay out of the U. S. if
he wants to. That would be fully as
satisfactory as putting him in the
The trouble is that right after Jack
left us, an east wind blew Artie Bris
bane into our midst to write double
dome editorial at us.
The -way to solve that garbage
problem is for the city, through the
health department, to seize the gar
bage reduction plant and operate it
for the benefit of the people of Chi
cago. Seize the plant now and go
into court afte'rward.
It would be refreshing to see rad
ical action for once taken for the pub
lic good. It's common enough for
private benefit and profit.
Striking waiters at St. Louis have
appealed to the governor for troops
to protect them from the police. Gee,
but wouldn't it be funny to see the
troops used to protect people instead
A committee of lawyers, judges
and county commissioners is prepar
ing statistics to convince the people
that we need more judges. That isn't
it at all. Give us more justice from
the ones we already have and then
we'll be ready for more.
Here's a tip for Julius Rosenwald,
Jimmie Simpson, et al: Clara S.
Loewus of Towafida, Pa., lived for
20 weeks on 50 cents a week. Why
not bring Clara to Chicago and show
the $4 clerks how to do it? Then

Just think of how it would help
employers out financially if girls
would only learn how to live on wind
The Daily News sassiety colyum

Aid. Capitain's suggestion that the
city install a garbage burning plant
at the Bridewell is worth consider
ing. Loots as if that would be a
whole lot betterthan paying a private
company nearly $50,000 a year for
reduction of city garbage.
Capitate, says the coal used at the
Bridewell now costs the. city about
$60 a day, and garbage is so full of
grease and oils that it makes good
fuel when properly handled.
' As the health of the people is in
volved in the handling of garbage, it
would be better for the city to oper
ate a garbage reduction or burning
plant than tq, be at the mercy of a
private corporation for profit.
Congressman McDermott has
some job on his hands explaining
those Mulhall documents. For a
labor representative, McDermott
seems to have been entirely too close '
to the National Association of Manu
facturers. If Gov. Dunne is going to recognize
the Progressive party on that public
utilities board, he' can't do better than
pick Jane Addams.
Our idea of wasting time in hot
weather is to petition Gov. Dunne to
call an extra session of the legisla
ture so as to get home rule for Chi
cago with Boss Andy Lawrence in
charge of the home rule.
Let's get the government of Chi
cago into the hands of the people
first. Then we'll have something to
