ONE MAN'S OPINIONS
BY N. D. COCHRAN.
Peevish Willie Hearst Jf Presi
dent Wilson doesn't obey Willie
Hearst's orders Willie is going to blow
hiin. right off the nest. Just read this
one from Hearst's Chicago American:
"And they (the people) will vote
again and finally in November, 1916,
and after that, with another president
in the White House and with public
opinion expressed as it should be, and
with Mr Page, the Anglomaniac,
back in America printing Woodrow
Wilson's books once more, THERE
WON'T BE ANY TALK OP RUN
NING THE PANAMA (CANAL UN
DER ENGLISH ORDERS." ,
Wouldn't that make you laugh. If
Wilson doesn't obey the orders of the
shipping trust, issued through its tool,
Hearst, why then Willie yill tell the
entire American people to defeat Wil
son and elect somebody Hearst and
Ihe shipping trust would like better.
" In Chicago Hearst's support now is
equivalent to defeat. The people sefcm
to enjoy swatting anybody he sup
ports. And when he is 'against a can
didate the people get lots of fun out
of piling up a big majority for him.
If Hearst really wants to defeat a man
let him support the man, but if Hearst
wants him elected then he'd better
Wonder what interest Hearst has
in the shipping trust, anyhow? And
why he is so crazy to" give their ships
a subsidy through free canal tolls?
Is it merely because Willie loves his
his country so?
John Shaffer's GallJohn C. Shaf
fer, publisher of the Chicago Post as
well as two Denver papers, has taken
it upon himself to tell President Wil
son to appoint a commission to settle
the Colorado coal strike. That far
his play is all right
But he wasn't satisfied to recom
mend the commission; he. had to tell
the president who ta put on it; .and
the labor leaders suggested were
James M. Lynch- ex-president of the
typographical union, and James S.
Freel president of the streotypers
Lynch and Freel will be remember
ed as the labor leaders who lined up
with the Chicago Publishers' Asso
ciation and helped them lick union t
pressmen, stereotypefs, drivers and'
newsboys, after the publishers trust
had locked out the union pressmen in'
Lynch and Freel may stand well
with their own unions, but I don't
imagine' the United Mine Workers
would stand for any such appoint
ments, although I don't see -why
Rockefeller and Hearst wouldn't be
Entirely satisfied to have these men
If Shaffer knew what delicacy was"
he would leave the selection of the
commission to the president instead"
of appointing-jt himself.
