sickening cowardice it is to demand

A father has no rights of any kind

The spirit which prompts a man to
kill his daughter's young husband,
merely because of his suspicions of
their relations before marriage, is the
spirit which drives childrens into ex

It is a survival of the old Roman

ANGRY POLITICIAN EXPLAINS HOW THE GAME
IS PLAYED IN THE NORTH SIDE DISTRICT
BY OFFICER 4-11-44
A man came into the City Hall to
day with a ran against the Norths
Side. He's played the game to the
limit over in the 21st Ward both, for
and against Harrison. And you
know the 21st Ward was the old Har
rison stamping ground.
The man is very anxious to tell his
yarn to the city officials. But for a
long time he held off because he
thought the "pull" was too strong
over the ward made famous by the
Lake Shore drive, Litlle -Hell and
The man is, or was, a big politician.
He knows the ropes. And he doesn't
believe very much in knocking. But
he's sore clear througa now. So he
wants to punch back.
"The. North Side is shot to hell,"
the man said. "Nobody over there
knows -what to do. If you're with
Quinn, and John F. O'Malley, the Sul
livan leader, should beat him you'll
have to go to Sunday school every
morning or go broke. And if you're
with. O'Malley and he loses it will be

"The Tribune made an awful bull a
few weeks back when they said Red

time Red Frez, who used to run a
saloon over, on Clark street, and 'Sam
the Jew' pulled around with Artie
Quinn, Jimmy's son
"Artie was a fool for falling for
those guys. They made their hang
out in the Empire Loan Bank and in
McGovern's, both located at Erie and
Clark. And the word was passed out
that they were delivering for Quinn.
"Both Red Frez and 'Sam the Jew'
were pretty slick customers. They
put it over on Artie, who's nothing
but a damfine kid, no matter what
the Tribune says about him.
"'Sam the Jew' used to be the
pawn ticket man. Nearly every night
he blew around the district with pawn
tickets for diamond rings and so
forth which he offered to peddle
"Why, that fellow reaped most of
his harvest right in the East Chicago
avenue station, where he .was strong
