A PLEA FOR CUNNEA
Editor Day Book: Why you
should vote for the Socialist can
didate, Wm. A. Cunnea:
The county judgeship is a very im
portant office.
After the county judge passes on
contracts and assessments, the pay
ments on various premises become
legaL
The Democratic party are spread
ing assessments to the limit.
They tried two years ago to col
lect a special assessment for W. 16th
st, a part of which was already paved
and paid for three years ago.
The Otis Elevator Co., which
owns about one block and a half, did
not want to pay its pro-rata share for
this improvement, so the Democratic
administration considered the plea
of the Otis Elevator Co. by spreading
a special assessment on the small
property owner where the street was
already paved.
The writer has called various meet
ings where arrangements were made,
to go to the county court for trial,
stating that part of W. 16th st. was
paved between Morgan and Woods
sts. and paid for three years before
the notices were received by the
property owners at that time.
After trying to put over this deal
on the poor property owner, it took
the Democratic administration and
the county judge one year and three
months before it was thrown out of
court.
After the writer appeared ten
times ready for trial, the court ruled
that the contestants in the case
through their lawyers represented
more dollars than the poor property
owners on W. 16th st
We had to wait until all the cor
poration lawyers were ready for trial 1
T but our pleas for a trial were in vain
So we people in the 10th ward can
not afford to even send a "good
Democrat" to the county bench be
cause of the treatment we received
from the present Democratic admin
istration. So in the name of the people who
have trusted me with this work which
I have completed, I ask the readers to
vote for Wm. A. Cunnea foi county
judge for the common good. J. J,
Thomas, 1618 Blue Island Av.
THE MORAL STANDARD
Editor Day Book: We are read-
ling and learning more every day
about the purity subject, the single
standard of morals, etc. Men, as a
general rule, expect their own of
fenses to be condoned, while at the
same time holding woman strictly to
account, even where the man is the
more guilty. And the man who is
making love to a pure woman with a
harlot's kisses on his lips is not wor
thy of either. He ought to be shot!
J. Brennan.
