THAT WAGE LAW. Many of our
prominent men are exerting all of
their efforts to have the minimum
wage law passed for the women and
girls of Illinois, or, in other words,
they are trying to put it over the
bosses. We must be thankful to
these men for their work in behalf
of the women and girls of Illinois, but
somehow or other they seem to be
unaware of the fact that there is not
a man in existence who can conquer
that great evil wealth.
It has been repeatedly tried. Com
missions and other investigating bod
ies have been formed and the million
aires on the witness stand just fool
around and "kid" their interrogators.
The men who own these depart
ment stores and the other low wage
houses have the iron heart and hand,
because the honest man cannot con
trol such evil conditions as exist in
Should the legislature pass the
minimum wage law the department
stores would discharge just enough of
their help to make the payroll the
same. So it is just a matter of choice
one girl at $9 per week or two
girls at $4.50, for again you can't put
it over these department stores.

JUSTICE. If we are to determine
as to what constitutes the biggest
fake, we, being subjected to one thou
sand and one fakes, must, first of all,
analytically conclude which one of
these sociological creatures of the
ruling class is most desirable, profit
able to them hence, most fatal to
the common people.
Unless we are helplessly hypnotized
by the influence of the kept press we
cannot help but arrive at the cou
elusion that the so-called justice is
the biggest and the fakiest fake ever
faked in fakedom.
Justice as such naturally arises
from interpretation of the law the
weapon of the famous "four hun
dred" with its powerful crooked
branches that poison, corrupt and de
stroy everything that has the mean
ing of healthy and pleasurable life.
If "law" was law the law that
governs and protects people and not
the parasitic few what a majestic
meaning and sound it would have!
But, alas, the law that is dictated by
the criminally heartless rich is a
parody, a farce. Deny it if you will,
brother; but vainly will you attempt
to undertake such a burden, for, as a
rule, moneyed ones are composing
our administrative, executive and ju
dicial offices and tribunals, and, if
there is an exception, it is generally
corrupted and converted to obedience
of the predatory rich. And if, by a
miracle, which seldom happens, there
can be found a true representative of
the people an entire kept press by its
magic wand ridicules him, discrimi
nates, blackens and what not.
Justice! What a joke is played
upon your majestic name!
But the real justice does exist at
least, in dictionaries. Doman L. Or
lowsky, 232 E. Erie st.
