TELLS OF ANOTHER ATTEMPT
TO HAND OUT DIRTY MONEY
Yesterday another attempt was
made to bribe a union man to betray
his union and break a strike. Nathan
Heller, a foreman in the Mattress
Makers' union, told a crowd of men
how A. Brandwine, the owner of the
shop in which he was employed, of
fered to pay him $100 to swear to a
false affidavit that L Dua, organizer
for the union, was making speeches
inciting the strikers to violence.
"Sign your name here and I'll put
Dua in jail for six months," he told
Heller in his home at 1536 Millard
av. "If you do this 111 take you back
on your old job and you shall be in
Heller refused and as Brandwine
left he shrugged his shoulders and
stated that tbere were other means
he could use to break up the strike

Today Dua will lay his informa
tion in the hands of State's Att'y
Hoyne and will demand that action
be taken against Brandwine.
"I know that if he failed to buy the
affidavit from Heller he may be able
to purchase it elsewhere," Dua told a
Day Book reporter. "If I were placed
in jail we would probably lose the
strike, for the members of our union
do not speak English and so would

JITNEY BUSES AND LINCOLN
PARK BOARD AT WAR '
Jitney bus owners were today pre
pared to force the issue with the Lin
coln park board. The jitneys have
been denied use of Sheridan road and
the park boulevards because rich
folks thought it would be sacreligious
desecration for jitney busses to con
sort with touring cars. Jitney busses
are such common, low-brow things.
S. E. Lyon, manager of a company
that proposes to run busses from Wil
son av. to the loop every 30 minutes, '
says his cars are going to run on e
boulevards if they arrest every
chauffeur he has.
"It is just as legal for us to carry
passengers' on the boulevard for 10
cents as it is for taxicabs to carry
passengers on the same streets for
ten times the amount," said Lyon.
Elevated and surface railway lines
are heart and soul with the park
board, for the bus service is popular
on the North Shore and the company
promises to extend the service all
over the city.
Chief Justice Harry Olsos thinks
it is a little to early to preach steri
lization of idiots, morons and other
mental delinquents to keep them
from .having children as mentally de
ficient as themselves.
Judge Olson favors Mrs. E. H. Har
riman's plan to sterilize 15,000,000
Americans, but thinks the public is
not sufficiently educated to approve
of such doings. For the present he
favors farms where these people can
be kept separated by sex.
Dr. Anna E. Blount believes hope
lessly idiotic children should be
