SUFFRAGE EDITION TO GO ON
WITHOUT HEARING PROTEST
After having agreed to hold a meet
ing and hear protests from the Chi
cago Federation of Labor and the
Woman's Trade Union League
against hitching the suffrage move
ment up to Hearst, the officers of the
Illinois Equal Suffrage League de
cided to go ahead with the special
suffrage edition of "The Examiner
without hearing the protest
This means that the suffrage edi
tion will be handled almost exclu
sively by club women, and that wo
men workers and their friends will
have nothing to do with it.
Labor leaders believe that the at
tempt to hitch onto the suffrage
movement is Hearst's dying gasp in
Chicago, and that he hoped to get
back the circulation he lost by being
the goat for the publishers' trust and
locking out union pressmen last year.
If union men and women and their
friends and sympathizers take no
part in pushing the suffrage edition
of The Examiner the sale of the edi
tion is very apt to be a frost, even
though the club women make some
money out of the advertising.
As The Examiner and American
are both on the unfair list of the
Chicago Federation of Labor, uniqn
men and women will not buy the
special edition. Not only that, but
they will actively oppose the deal
made by the Equal Suffrage League
and Hearst and fight the suffrage edi
tion. Under the circumstances, it is not
likely that Hearst will get his politi
cal hooks into the suffrage move
ment in Illinois through this little
financial deal with the officers of one
woman's suffrage organization, and
that he will have no more circulation
and influence after he gets through
than he had when he pulled off the
deal with the women.
It has been suggested that this
special edition be made an exclusive
society affair and nobody allowed to
participate unless they belong to
Chicago's most exclusive porkpack
ing circles; and that out of gratitude
to Hearst he be admitted to the 400.
NOT CONCERNED AT PRESENT
The gas was leaking in the house.
He lit a match to find it.
The, gas is leaking just the same,
But now he doesn't mind it.
