THE PUBLIC FORUM
TO VOTERS. I notice a lot about
finding work and subscribing that
$500,000 for the-imemployed in the
trust papers. I think-it -would do our
rottyor good if be "took a trip around
Chicago and looked through the al
leys and saw the garbage 'and ashes
piled up.
Tarn sure he would get more of the
wdmen's votes by cleaning up those
places instead of giving a suffrage
ball in the gold-room at the Congress,
where only the high mugs can at
tend. Hope the voters will get a lit

WOMAN'S RIGHTS. Is there a
solution to. the problem of prostitu
tioliY There isn't any, as prostitu
tion' has been going on since the
'world was created; and trying to Stop
it now is a hard thing to do as with
out a district they only keep girls
moving all over the city.
The girls have got to make a liv
ing some way and it is impossible to
live, on the Bmall wages you get I
know of many a girl that is working
and is also soliciting after her work
is" done.' as she has to do so or starve.
Give the girls a decent living wage
ana there won't be bo much prostitu
tion. Nature is a hard thing to mas
ternd there is only one waywe can
master it. We will have to have a
wqrld without men.
Tlielrible Bays this world cannot be
without sin. I think it ridiculous to
try?iAnd stop it now. They should
hare stopped it when it began instead
of frying now. -
Jfhere never has been so many
youhg girls ruined and so many
cranes committed as since they clos
edjjthat district Give the girls a dis
trict and let they stay there instead
of , driving them an over the city.
Prostitution is a thing that will exist
inllfpite of doing everything to resist
it' .The so-called society people Md'
better look at their Own class and 'see
What they are doing? They are at
the same game, only theirs is in the
dark. It seems like the women have
all the say now. The men will have
to discard their pants and give them
to the women to wear and wear
skirts as it seems that the women are
running everything now. Let the
men take a back seat and see what
the women can do. Ben Scott
SECRETS. In financial circles
there Is great fear the truth of the
high hand that has been played these
years in religion, politics, industries,
exhausting every means of stimula
tion, may become known before they
succeed in leading the golden calf into
seclusion. The better class are fast
learning to direct its attention, to use
fulness where the "fruits of our la
bors" are real worth. Take the Zend
saying, "God loves his people, and a
government not just to its people
must be removed," for the servant
cannot be greater than the master."
Westward is the trend of civilization,
following the cqurse of-the sun from
east to west It has reached its limit
and here must it blossom and bear
fruit to finish. Here class, creeds
and dogmas will be banished, and in
their place knowledge and wisdom
will be installed, for it's the signs of
the times, visible to those who see be
yond their nose. Brightness.
PARENTS AND CHILDREN Be
fore I came to Chicago by promotion
In. the concern for which I have
worked for many years, I lived in an
other and much, smaller city. My
'children, two of them, attended the
public schools. I learned quite by"
accident one day that there was no.
toilet paper in "the basement of the
school they attended. The principal'
was a woman, so I liad my wife "ask
her why this absolutely necessary
convenience was not there. The re
ply was that the school authorities
feared the children would steal the
naner and take it home. This thought
'came to me then, that we don't kno j
