My friend WeHs, if you ever read

giving any space to The Day Book,
or displaying the editor's likeness on
front sheet In colors, telling of his
appointment by Big Business on a
committee to investigate the unem
ployed, or of Julius Rosenwald do
nating $50,000 for a rest resort for
tired editor and staff of The Day
Book, if so, get out of the trenches
quick or you will be killed with sooth
ing salve.
Also, if you should meet the au
thor of this article on the private
grounds of Rockefeller eBtate, push
ing a perambulator of Big Business,
rap him on the head and see if it is
ivory. Do not attempt to use Aunt
Jane's soothing salve. Hull House

Dunn, 180 fi. Dearborn st. -
FOOLISH ARISTOCRAT. Birds
of a feather flock together, and ought
to stand together, but in my opinion
your writer signing Aristocrat is ex
posing methods common to his class,
and to Plutocrats, which are the fore
runners of Bis class. While I do not
yet cliam equality with "Aristocrat,
my children wilL Money gained by
the plutocrat (who may Bhow all the
crudities of the lower class, having
risen from that class) promotes-Cul;
ture by fitting the next generation
for a position in the Aristocracy.
As Culture is the goal of society,
weN should not examine too closely
the means of gaining the money ne
cessary to buy culture. The Pluto
crats must nave profits, which can
come only from labQr; hence labor
must be cheap, and we must encour
age everything tending to keep a safe
number of laborers unemployed, so
' that they may be drawn upon whea
needed, ajid so they wflTbe disposed
to accept a law wage. Should they
become discontented enough to form
parades and advertise their hunger,
they should be. fed enough to make
them contented.
A nice adjustment -of tnis matter
has thus far been made- by our law
makers and the police. The pluto
cratic legislators pass laws produc
ing monopoly, and the police frighten
the victims just enough to keep them
quiet. It is our interest to give them
subsistence whether at work or idle.
The cost is a small' price for our
safety. 'Aristocrat" should co-operate
by pretending patriotism, but not
going to war; he should advocate
high taxes, but he can evade them;
he can prate of Justice, then give o
charity r but the way he writes I fear
the common people will see through
the game. '
I sometimes wonder why they do
not, it is so "raw." The fact that
they do not, proves that Providence
is working in a mysterious way to
promote culture, for the few; the
many are the unconscious tools of
nature. Plutocrat
