the battle of life and help make this

John McGoey, 1028 W. Jackson Blvd.
Criticism of CochranT IJiave read
your amazing statement replying to
Mr. Parwejlr Your ignorance of what
is going on in Chicago is astounding.
To say that even 10 per cent of Mr.
Farwell's work has to do directly with
the females of the tenderloin is mak
ing it very high. A study of his finan
cial report would show what he is
engaged in; and if you would peruse
that a while you would be a wiser
and I hope a humbler uian. Moreover,
why did you omit the name of Prof.
Henderson of the United Charities
from among those signing the Vice
Commission report? An acquaint
ance with what he is doing would
quickly upset all your pet theories
about the United Charities, not to
mention where you have deplorably
fallen down in describing other or
ganizations. In the third place, it is no fault of
the preachers that you have not
heard how they have "thundered
from their pulpits the awful facts"
about low wages, etc. I have heard
such thundering direct from a num
ber and heard about them from
much larger number. Mrs. Raymond
Robins' correspondence also will re
veal that they have joined in with her
work in organizing the clerks. You
look to me very much like a quack,
interested in the coin just as much
as in bettering your fellow men, and
not entirely averse to garbling the
facts if your purpose can thus be bet
ter served. I am sure that no one
who is seriously concerned about
Chicago will pay any attention to
you, such as you are, in my judgment,
the bane of all progress.

Who Garrison Is. I don't know
Mr. Garrison who wrote the above,
but the letter came, to me on a letter-'
head, on which is printed: "The J. L.
War With Mexico. Bearing in
mind that W. R. Hearst owns vast
tracts of land in Mexico the follow
ing extract from a long editorial in
Hearst's Chicago American of Tues
day are not only interesting but il
luminating: "We shall free Mexico from a
Spanish system, complicated by In
dian bloodthirstiness, and solve the
problem for Mexico and the Mexicans
by making of that country UNITED
STATES TERRITORY and of the
people United States citizens.
"The Merican consul general says
it (the war) will cost fine hundred
millions. That may be true. The
UNITED STATES CAN AFFORD IT.
The territory that would be added to
the United States would be cheap at
five thousand millions.
"When this war is over and the
end may come soon, for the sake of
Mexico and her oppressed people
there will be many millions of acres
south of our present frontier made
prosperous, happy, useful AND
A GOOD IDEA
"A famous educator says every
body ought to read a little poetry
"I agree with him. If more people
would read poetry every day perhaps
there wouldn't be so many trying to
write it. Age-Herald.
