control of the morning field, and en
able the Tribune and Examiner to
get together and wield a powerful in
fluence. The next move then would prob
ably be to concentrate the big ad
vertising in two" evening papers and
send two of the afternoon dailies the
way of the Record-Herald and Inter
Ocean. Or by starting an evening paper or
buying one of those already here, the
Tribune could combine with Hearst
and Lawson and three men absolute
ly control newspaper publicity in Chi
cago. That would mean they could
control Chicago politics.
The situation is interesting be
cause nothing like it has happened
in any big American city. Both the
Record-Herald and the Inter-Ocean
have Associated Press franchises,
and if the papers are kille dthese
franchises would be killed, and the
Tribune would control the Associated
Press morning field, as the Examiner
has no Associated Press franchise.
There are various angles to the
game, and it's not all one-sided for
file big State street stores. For in
stance, If the Tribune and Examiner
are left in control of the morning
field they can raise advertising rates
and the stores would have to pay.
It might cost them as much for the
two papers as it now would for four.
And if the Record-Herald and Inter-Ocean
go now there will be no
chance for another morning paper to
break into Chicago and get an As
sociated Press franchise, for the
Tribune could keep anybody out be
cause of its right of protest, once the
R.-H. and L-O. franchises are aban
doned. Strenuous efforts are being made
to save the Record-Herald, and Hin
man, from whom Kohlsaat bought
the Inter-Ocean, is trying to find a
purchaser for that paper, so he can I
get his money out of it. It may be
that he will have to bid it4n himself.
One outsider who is looking in is
Chapin of San Francisco, a son-in-
law of Otis, owner of the Los Angeles
Some Republicans with money are
considering bidding for the Inter
Ocean, and a lot of figuring is being
done by men interested in politics
who want an organ.
The reorganization committee for
the Record-Herald has on it Jom
Hutchins, attorney for the Illinois
Trust & Savings Bank, of which John
Shedd of Marshall Field & Co. is a di

BIG SUFFRAGE PARADE IS
SCHEDULED FOR TODAY
Chicago's first suffrage parade will
start today at 5, o'clock. But notice
ably absent will be two important
suffrage leaders Jane Addams and
Mrs. J. T. Bowen.
At the present there is sort of a
ladies' war going on among the suf
fragists of Illinois with Mrs. Medill
McCormick, Miss Addams and Mrs.
Bowen on one side and Mrs. Grace
Wilbur Trout on the other.
Miss Addams and her two com-'
panions represent firmly the national
women's organization. Recently the
national organization sent certain
resolutions to all States, which were
to have been adopted. The resolu
tions were to aid a new appeal to
Congress. The Illinois women "failed
to adopt the resolution.v The national
organization thinks Mrs. Trout to
So the national leader have re
ceived with frigid silence the plans
of Mrs. Trout for today's parade.
