THE PUBLIC FORUM
HELPED THEM OUT. I noticed
by reading your paper that Judge Jo
seph Sabath is running for election to
the circuit court. My husband and I
want to say that Judge'Sabath in the
court of domestic relations gave us
$10 when we were going to be put
on the street because we couldn't pay
rent and my husband was out of
work and he got my husband work.
We are getting along all right now,
but we feel we owe it to Judge Sabath
and we hope you will print this letter
to let your readers know what a
kind judge he was to us. We would
like to have you help him because he
helped us. Hoping you will do this
for us as we are steady readers.

"BY HIS WORKS." One of the
candidate for election to judgeship
next Monday wrote a book a few
years ago. You can get a hne on
what manner of man he is from this
book. It says:
"The judge who plays politics is
about as reliable as the bank teller
who plays the races.
"Where men are stealing millions
the man who is working hard for a
few thousands doesn't know how the
stealing is done.
"Do you imagine for a moment
that men could take fortunes out of
steel mills, coal mines and factories
where big profits are made at the ex
pense of human lives were it not for
the code which values a life at sim
ply so many dollars?
"In a contest of brains it is often
hard to distinguish between clever
ness andHrickery. Even impartial
judges on the high bench often dis
igree. "Cheerless surroundings make
iheerless work and unlovely homes
Dreed unlovely men."
This is from Donald Richberg's
ook, "The Shadow Men." As writer,
awyer, thinker and man of the peo
ple, Richberg measures the equal of I
any candidate in the running. Harry
A CHANCE Voters have for a
long time wanted judges on the
bench that are free from politics.
Next Monday we have a chance to
get some by voting for the good,
strong candidates to the circuit court

BACKS JOHNSON. Frank John
son, first assistant to State's Att'y
Hoyne, ought to be elected judge next
Monday. He has been Hoyne'B right
hand man in some of the stiffest
prosecutions ever handled in Cook
county. He went the limit in trying
to convict Joseph Fish, a millionaire,
of the crime of arson. All who
watched him in that case were con
vinced of his knowledge of law, his
capacity for work and his personal
My main reason in writing this let
ter to you is to inform voters that the
Frank Johnson who is candidate for
judge is the same Frank Johnson who
is first assistant state's attorney.
That's enough for most of us to
know. W. E. S.
BOOSTS BROTHERS. May I put
a good word 'in The Day Book for a
man who is running for judge of the
circuit court on the Republican tick
et, and whom I think is well worthy
of election? I refer to David M.
Brothers. The best way to judge a
man when you do not know him per
sonally is by looking over his past
nmthRiK nracticallv started out in
Hi r law business with the law depart- W
ment of the Lake Forest university,
the Chicago College of Law. He later
entered the Illinois College of Law,
from which he was graduated in 1898.
Brothers served as an able assist
