Young SHOULD BE ACCEPTED AT ONCE; and pub
lie sentiment should force the resignation of every other
member who was in the political game.
Tomorrow a mass meeting will be held at the Audi
torium. That great building should be packed to the
ddors, AND THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE, and their
resentment against this outrage on the children of Chi
cage, should be voiced so emphatically that it will reach
into every home in Chicago where there is a child, or one
is hoped for.
There is no sense in leaving this matter of serious
public concern to the mercy of the politicians. THE
PEOPLE WILL HAVE TO TAKE IT IN THEIR OWN
HANDS, AND. GIVE PEREMPTORY ORDERS
RATHER THAN BEG FOR MERCY.
Political office holders are servants, not masters of
the people. Let the people, give their orders, and let the
Mrs. Young should be put back at the head of the
public schools of Chicago. Every imember of that board
who is not in sympathy with the public will has no busi
ness on the board and should get off, or be kicked joff.
Now is the time for the women of Chicago, and es
pecially the mothers, to show that they are citizens, and
convince their public servants that the will ofthe people
must be the law in this city.
DON'T BEG. DON'T PLEAD. DEMAND. IN
SIST. GIVE YOUR ORDERS. MAKE YOUR SER
VANTS OBEY. DO IT NOW.
THIS FROM LONDON
Mr. Lloyd George has been telling
some stories bearing on his own un
popularity with his political oppon
ents. One of them is about a man
who was presented with a testimonial
for saving someone from drowning.
The hero tmodestly deprecated the
praises showered upon him.
"Really, I have done very little to
deserve this reward," he said. "I saw
the man struggling in the water, and,
as no one else was by, I knew he
would be drowned if I didn't save
him. So I jumped in, swam out to
him, turned him over to make sure
that he wasn't Lloyd George, and
then pulled him out."
"Think of the good gas companies
have done!" cried an enthusiastic
orator. "If I were permitted a pun
I would say, m the words- of jhe
immortal poet, 'Honor the Light
Brigade!'" "Oh, what a charge they
made!" quoted a "voice."
