DAILY COMMENT ON
"Curses! Foiled again!" Wm. Re
lentless Rudolph Heart.
Admitting that war is hell, then
" 'isn't Hearst's war one war of a war?
'Can it be possible that some of our
rich patriots right here in Chicago
Anyhow, why is it that the more
taxes a man Is able to pay the less
he wants to pay?
Is it because he is an. A1 Chris
tian and believes that to him who
hath shall be given?
Disclosures at the Curran investi
gation might lead somebody to sus
pect that organized charity covers a
multitude of graft.
People of Chicago will 'now see
what it meant to them for State's
Attorney Hoyne to take possession
of the office of county attorney.
His taking charge of that office has
resulted m a. campaign to make rich
taxdodgers pay their taxes.
Influential men with a big pull have
been pretty well protected in the past,
but have no pull with Hoyne.
Any attempc in the County Board
to tie Hoyne's hands by refusing
proper appropriations for his work
will be understood.
In the name of Charity this town
is being overrun by educated beg
gars, who beg from the charitably in

what they beg.

a license to do their owh begging.
Beggars for the charity trust may
be better educated, more cultured
and neater of appearance, but the
principle is the same.
Some folks beg because they are
hungry, and some because they get a
salary for begging.
We have more respect for those
who beg because they are hungry.
Scientific charity would run a
stomach pump into a hungry man to
be dead sure it was empty before giv
ing him something to eat.
PEOPLE AND THINGS
They'll be putting the X-rays on
We all' love the soldier boy who
gets shot dead defending the flag,
We don't pay much attention to
him if he escapes with his life, comes
home and wants a job after the war
'And probably we didn't pay any
attention to him before he enlisted.
There are in Chicago today old
worn-out men who risked their lives
gallantly defending the flag from '61
Lto '65 who can tell you all about it.
And they were real heroes fifty
All of ais are great forgetters.
"My pa' gives me all his tobacco
"That's nothing, aiy pa lets me
