murderers. I think this very policy of the newspapers is one of the causes
of crime in Chicago.
One of my missions in Chicago is to help the people to understand their
newspapers, and to compel the newspapers to he honest and truthful, and
to represent their jeaders instead of their advertisers. When the people
understand their newspapers, the newspapers will have to be honest. .
Already I have forced them to make some changes in policy. They
are still rotten, iut there is a slight improvement. My calm, deliberate
judgment is that the Chicago newspapers, as now conducted in the interest
of advertisers, are the most potent influence for evil in this big city.

DOCTORS AND NURSES MIXED
UP IN RACE SUICIDE DEAL?
Philadelphia, Pa., Aug. 25. It is al
leged that a conspiracy exists here
between three local physicians and
two trained nurses to connive at race
