for. their coastwise ships through the
Panama Canal for it meant million's
to the shipping trust. I don't know
whether they hired Hearst, or
whether he had some other selfish
purpose in fighting for free tolls; but
he has been making a bitter fight just
the same, and ha&abused Wilson like
a horse thief, because Wilson op
posed free tolls for the shipping trust.
It may be that Hearst's swelled
head is aching, because of rapidly
waning influence. It must be plain to
everybody that the people who read
his dope sheets don't pay any atten
tion to his editorial yawps, and that
they no longer look to him for polit
That means that he no longer has
any goods to deliver politically to his
keepers. It may account for his
frantic efforts to discredit President
Wilson with the people of foreign
countries. If he can't rule Wilson he
wants to ruin him. But he can't do
it In Chicago, where once his polit
ical influence was powerful, his news
paper support now spells defeat for
the candidate who gets it. Hearst's
support has become a liability instead
of an asset.
It looks as if his game now is to
disrupt and destroy the Democratic
party; and I suspect that he is get
ting ready to tie up with Roosevelt
I also suspect that if Hearst keeps
degenerating as he has been in the
past few years since 1908, when he
knifed Bryan for Taft the time isn't
far off when he won't have any news
papers and magazines to fight with.

LETTER TO EDITOR
ABOUT BAD MEAT
Editor Day Book: I have read
many good letters from Day Book
readers where they hav,e a kick to
I have one and I hope we could do
something to stop the practice of ,
butchers pelling or trying to seU meat '
that is decaying to people they do not
Yesterday I went to a store on Hal
sted street to buy a pound and a half
of pork chops. As the butcher was
cutting the meat I noticed its dark
color and picked up a piece to smell,
and, sure enough, it was well started
to decaying, so I told him I did not
'care for that kind of pork chops. He
insisted on me taking it, and would
not cut any other for me.
I walked out to another store,
where I got' good pork chops, but
nearly got stung on a lead quarter.
About three weeks ago my wife
bought 42 cents' worth of steak.
When we ate it we noticed a bad
taste near the bone, and had to de
stroy the meat.
Now, I would like to have some one
say a word or two about market men
trying to get rid of all bad meat to
strangers or boys who have been
sent to market. I would like to have
some one say a word or two about
this, as I believe it must be dealt
with in the summer months, as it is
liable to kill a person eating meat that
is softening in these hot months.
