DAILY COMMENT ON
The striking copper miner who
-isn't an American citizen is lucky
for he can get protection through his
government.
Uncle Sam has to protect the rights
of foreigners even if he won't pro
tect the rights of American citizens.
- The Austrian government is about
to step in and protect some of her
citizens who have been . forced to
work in the copper mines against
their will.
By the way, what is government
for?
It appears that the copper barons
of Massachusetts can do as they
darned please in Michigan.
And all either state or national
government appears to be able to do
is to plead with them.
What they need is a swift kick!
Why not grant the miners belliger
ent rights, let them have guns and
fight it out with the imported gun
men? State's Attorney Hoyne evidently
doesn't suit the trust newspapers.
If he can keep the trust press down
on him and refuse to be' bossed by
them, some people who opposed his
election may revise their opinion of
him.
Yes there is some hope for
Hoyrie, with the high-brow bunch

The newspapers have run the
state's attorney's office so long that
it is high time for a change.
One of the burning questions in
local politics is whether Roger Sulli
van and Billy O'Connell will play ball
on the same team this year.
In the meantime, if Johnny Evers
expects to make a hit with the Cubs
this year, he had better get busy now
taking a few lessons in managing
himself.
Sure every employer who wants to
hold wages down will think Ford
made a mistake in establishing a $5
minimum.
PEOPLE AND THINGS
That kind of industrial justice in
terfere with "business." .
Subways will not prevent conges
tion if over 2,000,000 people are
forced to do business in one little
patch of land called the loop.
We have surface and "L" lines now
and rotten congestion in the loop.
And the more ways you figure out
for people to get into the loop, the
greater the congestion will be.
Better wipe Loopville off the map
and build uj Chicago.
It's very evident the council finance
committee is going to have a hard
time pulling down the $2,500,000 ex
cess in the new budget.
Up to now they haven't been able
to budget L

PLAN FOR EMPLOYMENT OF
'FRISCO'S IDLE MEN
Washington, Jan. 10. The Treas
ury Department announced today
that it will co-operate with the city of
San Francisco in finding employment
for idle men there and will shortly

templated .for some timej but tti

asking that the government give em
ployment to men there immediately,
if possible. JAIlj
