In The Day Book and I am not afraid
to print the truth. But rumor and
opinion are not always truth, and I
want the opportunity to investigate.
I owe it to all readers of The Day
Book to be on the level with them and
not let the paper run wild with reck
In any event, I am not going to let
anybody abuse his neighbors no mat
ter what their religion, and hide be
hind The Day Book while doing it.
If he deals wth facts of public inter
est then I'll back up the facts, and it
makes not the slightest difference to
me what church is helped or harmed
by the truth. N. D. Cochran.
NAMErAND ADDRESS. A letter
came to The Public Forum this morn
ing addressed to Mr. Cliarles 0. J.

THOSE YELLOW TAXICABS.
How is it that the Yellow Taxicab
Co. can get an injunction against a
working man? Why can't we paint
our cars yellow? Is there a copy
right on color? Yes, there is not!
If you and I had a house and I
painted mine red and you did the
same, could I stop you? No! This
country is not a free country. It is
worse than Russia. The American
citizen gets no justice in America. .
I just want to let other citizens
know what kind of justice we get
I am a union man and a taxi driver
myself. C. J. B.
BLONDES AND BRUNETTES.
Who makes up the old maid budget in
this city? Which are there more of
in the city, blondes or brunettes?
There are a great many more bru
nettes than blondes, therefore should
there not be a great many more bru
nettes that are old maids? Blondes
always look up to some one else for
protection and don't seem to have
power and energy enough to do any
thing beyond going and having a
A brunette is quite different She
does for herself, looks up to no one,
is independent and has a mind of her
own and takes life in a more sincere
manner and generally makes a suc

not always the biggest factor m life.

TO HUTCHINGS. Permit me to
say a few words in reply toiM. S.
Hutchings, whose letter yjjMVub
lished Aug. 31. This gjBian
makes the statement that 7jBent
of the people of Chicago areJBath
olic. I beg to disagree with him. His
figures need considerable revising,
and I will say that his statement Js
typical of Romish bluff and bluster.
In the better sections of the city the
percentage of Catholics is small,
while in other portions they have a.
majority, but altogether their per
centage is not greater than 50 per
cent. He further states that the per
centage of Catholics is rapidly in
creasing. I again beg to disagree
with him. As a matter of fact, peo
ple are becoming educated very rap
idly and are getting away from super
stition and idolatry, as well as owing
allegiance to a foreign potentate.

he had need.)
