SATAN AND SHARP. Coincident
al with the glorious advent of J. H.
Christ at 210 South Halsted st. and
of His sanctifying The Day Book by
using it to announce His Presence,
we began to notice our Forum, the
greatest little Vox Pop. in town, be
ginning to shrink. Obviously the
devil, raging at the Forum's new
odor of. sanctity, has inspired The
Forum editor to this dastardliness.
O, mistaken Brother Sharp, give us
back the eight columns of Forum
which we had before He arrived in
His majesty, as was foretold by the
Prophet Konnenbul in the 183d verse
of the Fourth Book of Thessalonians !
Verily, are not the Turks driven be
tween the two seas? Is not Arma
geddon here? And (hallelujah!) is
not J. C. holding down his job with
C. & N. W-? "The set time has
come," and with it the latter-day
phenomena, such as cutting our Fo
rum to five and one-half columns
This will not do. Now that the
temple is about to be restored, so
must The Forum be restored. Now
that S. Market street is to be desert
ed in favor of Gallilee, we followers
of the Halsted street Son of Man
must see that the powers or darkness

not blame me if folks don't write

SECTARIAN AID. I read that J.
H. Straley is to stop the city from

today is a grand issue, as it elevates
the workingman's conditions. It also
helps to separate some of the coveted
profits from the capitalists for the
use of the workingman's mode of liv
ing, but it does not deal strictly in
accordance with the apprenticeship
situation, which is a vital issue of to
day. Nowadays boys who would like to
learn a certain trade are hampered.
Why? Because his father happens
to be a man in a different line of em
ployment, or because there may be
too many apprentices in that partic-"
ular line of work which he seeks to
learn, or because a father puts his
son in his line of work to which the'
son is not adapted; also because the
union limits apprenticeships to a cer
tain amount of skilled labor employ
ed, and in this way helps to keep
away a certain amount of boys from
their particular calling in life. It is
just this way of doing things that
takes away freedom and opportunity
from boys. Bab.
SUPREME COURT. I recently
read an article in which the supreme,
court of the United States was re
ferred to. One thing that impressed
me the most was the power this court
exercises over the nation. Not one
of the nine men that constitutes the
supreme court are elected by the peo
ple. The judges of this court, as we
all know, are appointed by the presi
dent for a life term, regardless of the'
peoples' will. Why should not the
people have the power to elect men
to our highest court, as well as the
lowest? If the people have the right
to elect members to congress why are
they deprived of the power to choose
men to the supreme court'
