MERELY COMMENT
And now that we've got 'em what'll
we call 'em policewomen, police
ladies, copragettes, or just plain c'op
pesses? And will men have a choice as to
whether he will be pinched by a, man
of copped by a woman?
Anyhow, more power to the ladies,
and we'll see what we'll see. This is
a great country and things are hap
pening every minute.
It is to be hoped, however, that
Jerry O'Connor, the moral one, won't
censor the coppess uniform. It's none
of Jerry's business.
Evidently some Daily News drivers
appear to think that old Vic Lawson
is king of Chicago, and that any cop
who interferes with his rowdies is in
danger of being beheaded.
So Wm. Vincent Astor has to pay
an inheritance tax of $2,741,833 to
the, State of New York on the millions
he inherited from his dad. But then
many a- man. would be glad to pay
that tax if he could have the fortune
to pay it on.
Andy Lawrence sent word to the
Butts committee that he was going to
leave the city, not to be back until
Oct. 1. As long as Andy must go
away it is kind of him to leave the
city. We might need it while he's
gone.
But what in thunder's going to be
come of us all if every blamed one of
the big newspaper bosses gets out of
town.
It appears that crooked election of
ficials can manipulate the voting ma
chine. Answer: Get honest election
officials.
Why doesn't some- local Buffalo
Bill get up a Chicago Wild West and
take some of our most prominent
gunmen on the road. It would put
Buffalo Bill's tame affair out of busi
ness. Needn't throw your cigarette away.
Lucy Page Gaston isn't one of the
new coppesses.
Neither is Arthur Baggage Farwell.
Whoever is writing the-"news"
about the Mexican situation for Bill
Hearst's papers must hit a swell
brand of hop. Those dreams are
very Jim-Jammy.
Why is it that not a single big daily
in the Chicago newspaper trust Is
fighting on the side of telephone
users? Has the 'phone monopoly got
every one of them hooked?
How about the public service policy"
of. the Trib? Is it all bunk when'
there's a chance for a real public ser
vice? Mr. Max Annenberg, one of our
most prominent gunmen, is still in.
our midst, and Maclay Hoyne appears !
to be stirring around in the Tribune's
midst. By the way, if the virtuous. Trib
really wants to stop gambling; why,
not get after the big gamblers on thej
board of trade? All other gamblers
are mere pikers alongside such gam-,
biers as Jim Patten and the big
bunch.
As near as we can figure it out the
main business of the board of review
is to be kind and generous to the big-tax-dodgers
and cut down their as
sessments. Have you noticed how different the
attitude of politicians toward women
since the women became full-fledged'
citizens. That little vote does make
a difference.
Goodness gracious, the society suf
fragists who are in partnership with
the Examiner to make a little money,
have now got the temperance folks
all riled up because of a rumor that
there will be two pages of booze ad
vertising in that suffrage edition of
the Examiner.
Mrs. Trout, however, says it is no
such thing. And she is peeved at the
anti-saloonists for spreading the
story. This is a crool world, good
folks.' And the wets and drys have'
one dickens of a time with it.

What sort of fellow is he?" "Oh, just'
like all amateur productions!" '
