DAILY COMMENT ON PEOPLE AND THINGS
The right to recall public servants
when they attempt to be public mas
ters is a darned .convenient thing to
have about the house.
Out in Colorado the governor got
gay and ran the state to suit the coal
operators, letting them use the
militia as strikebreakers.
But they have the recall in Col
orado, and the people are going to
try it on Gov. Ammons.
Here's hoping he gets his bumps
good and plenty.
Come on now, Business, pick up.
The currency thing is a law, and it's
time for business to get busy.
There was never any danger, but
the ghouls of Wall street tightened up
on credit and put over a near-panic,
just to throw a scare into President
Wilson and congress.
It's about time for the big bankers
of Chicago to grab off financial head
quarters, and try handling money and
credit for the benefit of legitimate
business instead of for the frenzied
financiers of New York.
All the bankers everywhere are do
ing business with the people's money,
although they act as if it belonged to
They'd better begin using it for the
benefit of the people.
If you want the right angle on that
row in the County Board, just guess
that the newspaper trust is grooming
McCormick for mayor, and that Mc--Cormick
is playing politics toward
We don't care hoot about parties
or politicians. They all look alike
when they get in.
But the political game being played
in the County Board is a newspaper
political game and it makes us tired.
Back of it all is a strong play to
get next to the woman vote. And if
the women are not smarter than the
men they'll fall for it.
If the people could only get next
they would probably find that the so-
called roughnecks on the board are I
closer to the people than the high
brows who train with McCormick.
And if we don't watch out we'll
have a sassiety mayor and a 400 ad
ministration. Then Chicago will be run like a
Blackstone reception or a Lake Shore
Drive pink tea.
The trouble with a lot of politicians
is that they are afraid of the woman
vote and are making the fool mistake
of thinking that the club women will
But it is a long ways from a cinch
that the women touted strongest in
the kept press as leaders will lead the
whole flock of women.
It might be well to remember, that
even though they have the vote, wo
men are still human beings or are
human beings still. Suit yourself as
to where you put the still.
That Co-to-Church campaign is
all right for a diversion, but a Go-to-Work
campaign would be more to
the point, if somebody, will supply the
If the people won't go to church,
there's nothing to stop the church
irom going to tne people.
And it would help a whole lot of
Christian ministers if they would
practice what they preach and try
applying their Christianity just as its
By the way, in writing communica
tions to The Day Book cut 'em short.
Go right to the point. Don't waste
words. It's not language we're after,
but ideas and thoughts.
Putting too many clothes and too
loud clothes on thought Is just as bad
as overdressing a human being.
We invite letters to the editor.
We want our readers to help make
The Day Book what it ought to be. .
But don't write a book. Boil 'er
down. This is a tabloid newspaper.
Some letters we get are too darned
Idng-winded. Others come right to
the point like that one from A
