Chas. Mayhew, 2550 S. Wabash av.,

ored, flirted with two men at Wabash

chanced to be Officers Scott and

not twinkle as brightly as the other.

suspicions were right She said May

Louis last week She met htm there

FORMER REACTIONARY SCORES
Denver, Colo., July 22. Denounc-V.'
ing the "one-sided enforcement" of
the law in imprisoning hundreds of
former strikers "while those respon
sible for the Ludlow massacre go un
punished," A. M. Stevenson, former
Republican national committeeman,
has asked Gov. Carlson to call off
the prosecution of the thousand in
dicted men. Stevenson, who had
charge of the Taft steamroller in
1912, has always been considered a
mine operators' man. His interview
today was remarkable for breaking
his known conservatism.
Stevenson declared John R. Law
son, the strike leader sentenced to
life imprisonment for conspiracy, has
not had a fair trial
"John D. Rockefeller, Jr., does not
know the real facts about the Colo
rado situation and these conditions
would not exist if he knew them,"
said Stevenson. "I do not think he
is in sympathy with these prosecu
tions. They are a grave mistake.
Most people think, and I believe with
reason, that many of the miners are
not getting a fair trial."
He specified Lawson.
