TRUST PAPERS PLAY "DIRTY"
ON PARADE NEWS
The Tribune, Examiner and Herald
are playing absolutly "dirty" in han
dling the news of the Garment Work
ers' strike. In fact, they are not
handling the real news. Stories con
cerning Tuesday afternoon's mon
strous strikers' parade, as carried in
these three papers, read as though
they had been run on a "color" press.
That is the substance of a kick
that the garment workers are making
against the action of the trust press.
A bitter discussion took place this
morning at the Amalgamated Cloth
ing Workers' headquarters over the
way their side of the big clothing
strike is carried to the public through
the loop papers.
The Chicago Evening Post, the
American and The Day Book said 15,
000 strikers were in Tuesday's pa
rade. That statement was correct
The Tribune claimed only- 4,000
paraded, the Examiner 5,000 and the
Herald 7,500. Does it take 4.00Q1
5,000 or 7,500 better than an hour to J
pass when they are marching in
fours? The clothing bosses them
selves, who watched the parade from
their office windows, will grant that
better than 15,000 marchers turned
The working class in every trade
read with interest stories to the effect
that mounted officers led the parade.
That is the ordinary way -for a parade
to be carried on in Chicago. But
this garment workers' parade was no
Instead of mounted officers lead
ing, there were thirty mounted police
men trailing the marchers. When
Chief Healey was asked why his
horsemen were shifted from the front
ranks to the rear he replied: "Oh, to
be ready in case anything happened."
The parade started a little after
one o'clock at Ashland and Jackson.
The route carried the marchers
through the loop and back to Hod
Carriers' hall, at Green, and Harrison.
The last of Uie marchers finislied -the
hike shortly after 5 o'clock. Nobody
was hurt and everything went off in
order. The policemen minded their
own business. The private detectives
had a day off.
The only thing that slipped was the
trust press. Four hours to parade and
only four, five or seven and a half
thousand in line. And don't blame it
oih the reporters who covered the pa
rade. o o
THREE BRIGHT BOYS WANT A
CHANCE TO MAKE GOOD
Three boys, 14 to 16 years old
want you to give them a job.
They are bright, intelligent youths,
all three of them. jMjMseem to have
pep and vim andijMfc. along with
a consmeraDie asuwrntni gooa com
mon sense. "fT
They seem equipped with the men
tal ability, the physical' stamina and
the inherent grit and "get 'there"
spirit that will "put them there"
some day if they get the chance to go.
Why do such desirables have trou
ble finding work? Because they have
spent time in a reform school.
All these boys say they want is a
chance. Their offense in the begin
ning was not great. They have come
through the reform school with un
broken spirit Nof the mere secur
ing of a place to be busy and work to
make good may readily bring out the
true manhood within them.
The Boys' Brotherhood Republic,
which busies itself in finding a chance
for the boys who do not seem to have
a chance, has put the O. K on these
three 'lads. You can get in touch
with the boys or any one of them
through The Day Book. Give your
telephone number when you apply.
