every free hospital, every asylum and
every charity. The reason for the
existence of charities will be an
alyzed. The causes leading to their
existence will be investigated and
steps taken to obviate them, thereby
making the remedy unnecessary.
"Every superintendent of charit
able organizations will be asked to re
port to us."
As Professor Henderson remarks,
the investigation unquestionably will
be a comprehensive one.
The only difficulty about it is, how
ever, that every investigation depends
entirely on the viewpoint from which
it is undertaken.
In this case, the investigation
might be more productive of good if
it were undertaken from the view
point of plain, ordinary, red-blooded
human beings with hearts beating
strongly in their breasts, than from
the viewpoint of "charity experts,"
with sheaves of statistics and scienti
fic information and, to all outward
appearances, a total lack of heart, or
else a feeling that the must suppress
what heart there is in them.
Evidently those Eastern cops who
pinched Medill McCormJck in his pa
jamas didn't like Chicago's Septem
ber Morn way of being all dressed up.
But nobody ought to bother Medill
McCormick no matter what he does.
He is personally acquainted with
Teddy; and besides he's rich by in
heritance. And if Medill wasn't going to wear
his clothes, it was very thoughtful of
him to put on his pajamas before he
got off the train. What if he had
worn a nightie?
After this our prominent citizens
who travel eastward with the boss
of the Pullman Company should take
Moral Censor Jerry O'Connor with
them. Or Maje Funkhauser.
What with Medill McCormick's
pajamas, Harold McCormick's hydro
plane and Bob McCormick's Tribune,
we are having one dickens of a time
with our McCormicks. They come
high, but we must have 'em.
The vicious cartoon attacks on
Wm. J. Bryan in Hearst's papers have
a purpose, of course. Can- it be that
Hearst is sore because Bryan's policy
as secretary of state won't help
Hearst's Mexican investments?
Or is Hearst working for Wall
street interests that want to control
the government's Mexican policy for
their own benefit?
Mrs. Winona Fitts Jones and her
little band are after Judge Cooper
again, shooting him full of holes with
paper wads. .
Have YOU joined the Chicago Tele
phone Users' Association, to protect
yourself from 'phone monopoly.?
Lawyer. Lyle, of the Englewood
Law and Order Outfit, got his pic
ture in the Trib this morning. That's
a way the Trib has patting men on
the back while using them to pull its
chestnuts out of the fire.
He wrote a letter to Hoyne, but
gave it to the Trib before Hoyne got
it; which indicates that some Trib
reporter worked the young lawyer,
and got him to write, the letter.
If you want free advertising in the
Trib nowadays just write a letter
criticizing Hoyne. It's easy.
Gov. Sulver's bank account doesn't
indicate that he is a very poor man.
When the Trib gives several col
umns to a little story like that En
glewood Law and Order League scrap
with Hoyne, it is evidence of hysteria,
which is bad for a paper that admits
it is the greatest on earth.
Evidently the prosecution of the
Trib's chief gunman has got under
the management's hide.
It makes no difference how much
of a liar Mulhall is, the N. A. M. is

its officers of being an insidious and
O, yes, Chicago window displays
