PROTEST LISTING INNOCENTS
Shall lads brought into boys' court

"No!" comes the answer from the
throat of every member of the Boys'
Such feeling of resentment against
the order has been aroused among
the boys of the city that a monster
parade of boys with a mass meeting
at the Coliseum is planned.
A special meeting of the Republic
was held last night and a resolution
adopted calling for hiring attorneys
to make a test case if protests to
Mayor Thompson and to Judge Harry
Olson did not gain revocation of
Judge Olson's order to take the finger
prints. Plans were laid for the pa
rade and mass meeting.
"This new system at boys' court
means nothing short of crime breed
ing," said Ralph Goodman, mayor of
the republic. "If a boy is arrested for
playing in the streets because the city
will not build a playground his finger
print will be taken, just as if he had
robbed a bank.
"Instead of the court trying to get
the boys out of trouble, it seems they
are trying to get them into it They

It will not lessen the psychological ill
effect upon him to tell him that the
finger print catalogue is not consid
ered a rogues' gallery."
More than half of the boys brought
into boys' court are discharged.
HILLMAN DENIES STORY THAT
STRIKE IS LOST
This morning's Examiner quotes
one of the vice presidents of one 'of
the local unions of the striking gar
ment workers as saying that the
strike is already lost
This was denounced as untrue by
Sidney Hillman, international presi
dent of the union, this morning.
"I am positive no officer of our or
ganization would make such a state
ment and that the Examiner has de
liberately misquoted or twisted some
statement," said Hillman. "It is just
such a campaign of lies as this that
we have been fighting since the be
ginning of the strike. I think that
the people have learned to see what
is back of the stories published in.
the trust papers.
"So the manufacturers told the
aldermen that 90 per cent of their
employes were back to work. We
will say that only 10 per cent are
back to work and make it even 100
per cent The parade we held last
Tuesday proved who are the liars."
Beginning at 12 midnight, Sunday,
the strikers will hold entertainments'
in Hodcarriers'. Wicker Park and'
Troy halls. Singers, dancers andt
speakers will come forth from the
ranks of the strikers and entertain"
the crowds until 4 o'clock in -the r
