ANOTHER IN THE REFORMER
RANKS "HOT STOVE JIMMY"
Residents of North Clark street
gathered in excited groups at Mc
Govem's, Hennessy's, Mickey Frank's
and all the other meeting places of
the bunch today and discussed the
strange actions of "Hot-Stove Jim
my" Quinn in getting on the platform
with Dr. Elmer L. Williams last night.
For "Little Jimmy," striking a Dr.
Parkhurst attitude, in righteous in
dignation, sounded the death knell of
vice on the North Side.
"Me and Dr. Williams and the
other loyal North Siders are going to
see that the North Side is cleaned
up," shouted "Hot Stove," and the
Rev. Williams' bald head fairly glow
ed with delight. "We've suffered long
Some one in the rear snickered.
Jimmy cast a look of unholy wrath
in the direction of the snicker.
"Oh I know," he said mournfully,
"we got an awful bad name. Only to
day I heard of two disreputable
houses in our community."
' Jimmy's sorrow overcame him.
The idea of the 21st ward containing
two disorderly houses was too much.
But Jimmy is very apt to have got
ten himself In wrong with part of his
talk wherein he intimated that Judge
Hopkins was too lenient with resort
owners who were brought into the
Attorney Joseph B. David, repre
senting Mother Doane, defendant in
a case now on trial before Judge
Hopkins, today demanded an inves
tigation of a statement credited to
Quinn wherein "Hot Stove" said, in

not co-operating with the police in
After listening to David, Judge
Hopkins announced that he wouldjn
vestigate the matter this afternoon.
Quinn's grudge is probably based
on the fact that Judge Hopkins in
stead of not punishing offenders, is
apt to fine any one, including North
Siders who come into his court with
a Jimmy Quinn pull.
A. F. OF L. TO TRY AND SETTLE
ELECTRICAL WORKERS' WAR
Seattle, Wash., Nov. 12. Definite
plans for ending the internal warfare
in the Electrical Workers' Union be
tween the McNulty and Reid-Murphy
factions will be presented this after
noon before the annual convention
of American Federation of Labor now
in session here.
This controversy, which has
shaken the federation, has caused
bitter disagreements in nearly every
state in the union, and it is admitted
by all that no progress will be made
in the electrical field until the con
tending factions are united. The
Reid-Murphy leaders have expressed
a willingness to "go 'half way" and
have named a committee to confer
with a committee from the A. F. of
L., with a view of arranging a settle
ment. The national officers of the
federation are lending their support
to the plans.
The federatipn today resumed con
sideration of the resolution intro
duced by Delegate Morris Brown, of
the Central Federated Union of
Greater New York, asking that the
charter of the White Rats Actors'
Association be suspended. The reso
lution alleges the White Rats are not
entitled to a charter because they do
not include in their membership
enough locals to come within the
limits prescribed by the federation
Brown presented another resolu
tion charging that the White Rats
refused to allow the Hebrew Actors'
Union, which is amalgated with
them, the right of representation, al
though an agreement to this effect
was made at the Rochester conven
tion. some live: EXPOSURES?
