Chicago bankers' have ordered
Congressman Jim Mann to support
the war risk insurance bill.
The chances are Jim will "be
good."
Mayor Harrison touched Roger
Sullivan's corporation record, but the
newspapers overlooked it.
Roger has the papers buffaloed this
year. They are covering up his past.
The Board of Review has handed
the Chicago banks a few millions by
cutting down their taxes 15 per cent.
" That is equivalent to taxing the
rest of the people and handing the
money to the bankers.
Now watch 'em put ON the little
fellows what they took OFF of the
big ones.
"To him who hath shall be given,"
etc.
Thousands and thousands of hu
man being killed thus far in that war,
and only one prince.
With an army of candidates for
nomination, how can the average cit
izen know them all and vote intelli
gently?
- It's time for the short ballot.
So Stringer wants Harrison to put
on the Boft pedal in talking about Sul-
- livan.
Gee whiz, has Roger got Stringer
- buffaloed, too?
Isn't it rather odd that J. Ham
Lewis should insist on a Democrat
i being appointed in Dis't Att'y Wilker-
sons' place, just when an investiga
tion of the food hogs is -on?
Is J. Ham representing the stock
yards in the senate?
- There are no more dangerous ene--mies
of union labor than grafting of
ficials. -- The grafting business agent who
; calls men on strike in order to feather
his own nest ought to be kicked out
of the union. ..
And the labor sluggers who slug
honest unionists for fighting grafters
are more dangerous than strike
breakers. o o
MOVE OF THE BOARD OF REVIEW
COSTS COUNTY BIG SUM
Well, the bankers of Chicago man
aged to get away with it in their plea
for a reduction in taxes. The board of
review, led by Roy 0. West,, has or
dered a reduction of 15 per cent in the
assessments levied in April. The ex
cuse is that the war makes it tough
on the bankers.
This is a serious blow to the work
started by State's Att'y Hoyne to
make the big bugs come across with
the same proportion in taxes. .When
Hoyne got busy with the banks they
were assessed on a total valuation of
$140,909,256. By the action of the
board of review the county loses just
$21,136,238 in taxes.
