CONCERNING ALD. CAPITAIN'S
STAND IN CAR SITUATION
Henry D. Capitain, the alderman
who wanted the council finance com
mittee to give Chief of Police Healey
$450,000 for special police, 1,000
guns and 50,000 cartridges, practic
ally stood with the street car com
panies and against the car men dur
ing the famous all-night, shirt
sleeve conference in Mayor Thomp
When the conference started early
in the night Capitain began sticking
in suggestions and arguments more
than any man in the mayor's office.
After midnight he was known. He
was not asked by the other aldermen
to take part with them in their con
sultations nor was he called in, as
other aldermen were, for side-talks
with the street car men.
While the whole city of Chicago
was strike-tied, with the work and
business of the city almost paralyzed,
Capitain, as an alderman appointed
to take a broad view and help settle
the strike, made this statement in
the mayor's office to one of the street
car men's committee:
"It doesn't seem to me that you
men are in the right in this matter.
Your demands are almost impossible
for the companies to grant You
have selected the wrong time for pre
senting these demands."
"Well for God's sake, how long do
you expect us to wait," replied the
car man. "Every time we have come
to draw (up an agreement we have
met this cry that we are taking the
wrong time for it"
One of the high spots of the con
ference came when Bill Mahon stood
up after Capitain had finished a talk
on the hard work of the men who
are struggling to manage the rail
road street railways during a finan
cial depression. Mahon said:
"While we are here tonight let's
not waste any time. Let's keep our
mouths shut when we haven't got
anything to say. There's no use of
anybody shooting the bull. Mr. Bus
by don't love us and we know it We
don't love Mr. Busby and he knows it
So don't shoot the bull."
DANGERS BEFORE CHILDBIRTH
MAY BE ELIMINATED
South Bend, Ind., June 19. Dan
gers preceding childbirth, such as
poisoning and morning sickness, will
be eliminated by a serum claimed to
have been discovered by Dr. J. B.
Gooken of South Bend, who today
described experiments with the toxin
that covered a period of five years.
"The commonest form of poison
ing suffered by expectant mothers,"
said Dr. Gooken, "is the morning
sickness. This is caused by waste
from the developing child, which is
not carried off properly by the moth
er's blood and organs."
Dr. Gooken explained that nature
is aided in throwing off this waste by
means of the serum he has discovered.
AT A VENTURE

"A small plum, miss."
