THAT DEBATE. Concerning the
paragraph about the McKinley vs.
tfi Marshall debate, I happened to be
present, so I can answer "R. E. K.'s"
I sincerely believe that a slight'
partiality was shown to the girl. The
debate was very cldse and after a re
markable rebuttal by the girl debat
er from Marshall and the last McKih
ley speakers,-the debate was a little
in iavor of McKinley. Great was the
astonishment when it was announced
that Marshall had won.
One prominent former high school
debater and member df a. champion
ship team said this: "McKinley real
ly won the debate, but lost it through
the influence of a girl."
This debate was considered one of
the best in Chicago high schools.
Even at the Crane vs. Marshall de
bate the decision against Crane
aroused a great protest The "tech."
school loudly complained of the de
cision. Pupils from the Marshall high
school have often been heard to say:
"All our girl debater has to do is to
wink at the judges and we win."
This is the wrong spirit. It is not
the spirit of fair play, and the only
way it can be avoided is to have the
girls and boys have separate teams.

SNflTH'S PHILOSOPHY. Mr. S.
P. Cleveland is right in almdst all he
said and no one should ridlcUle him
for cajriing'out with it in the way he
did. He was square enough to call
fiiiriself a bonehdad along with the
rest of the push and shoiild be re
epectfea for doing so.
I B$Id awhile back that itfe have sd
called humanity days, such as the
25t& df December. If jiedple wdii't
take that day seribusly along With
the rest of the days following, how te
Mr Cleveland or any one else going
to induce the slave or worshipers of
gold to heed with a true heart any
other specified humanity day?
Mr. Cleveland is sore at the way
the world is run and so:s any well
nieaning individual, and they are not
to blame, because it's a rotten deal
which most of us are getting.
TheSe sanctified lobsters who pre
tend to love, but in fact hate the very
I-workers who do most of the good are
a curse to the world.. Their dire hy
pocrisy is tob utterly debasing for
even the devil himself to sanction.
There is only one true rehgibn. The
restore only branches, running like
hell and thunder to nowhere. The
golden rule is preached in all the
churches. If the listeners are sincere
then why dd they ridt heed it and
deal fair" by all men.
No, Mr. Cleveland, all articles writ
ten in The Day Book are not hot air.
Neither was yours, and when you de
nounce Mr. Cochran, Jane Whitaker,,
I Jim Mande and some of the rest as;
noi-air snooters you re aerauea. xou
can call me a hot-air shooter hyeu,
wish, but hot Mr. Cochran. We-cdUld

I would tell of all the different
kinds of working slave's and hbift
some of them are doing better than,
some of the others, if I w"efe alldwed
the space. At any rate, Mr. Cleveland,
you have the same idea that I hav
and I am for humanity days at all
times. So let's think well of each
dther, come what will. Yes, I'm
slightly derailed, too. Frank Smith.
