Judge TJhlir said he was astounded
at Hanna's suspension; that he was
honest, efficient, and had turned in
reports to the police which had never
been acted upon.
'IThe morals com'n'r has evidence
I would like to have submitted before
this committee," he sald "I would
like to learn why he has been dis
charged. "Do you know?" he suddenly asked
City Pros. Miller. Miller was startled.
He was the person who asked Hanna
for evidence and got it and then made
fun of it.
"No," he replied. The aldermen
grinned.
Hanna, upon receiving the request
of the committee to appear before it,
asked permission from Chief Healey
who held his answer till 2 o'clock yes
terday afternoon when he ordered
Hanna's suspension.
Aid. Buck directly charged the
Chief with flouting the committee and
trying to hinder the investigation.
Hanna was suspended once before.
He retained his job but it cost him
nearly $150 in court fees.
The judiciary committee will hold
another meeting at 11 o'clock this
morning for the sole purpose of
catching Chief Healey before he dis
appears for lunch. Aids. Buck, Kim
ball and Kjellander want to ask the
chief a number of questioons, princi
pally on why he hasn't seen to it that
the reports of Morals Inspector Han
na against cabarets and fox trotter
ies were not acted upon and why
Healey suspended Hanna a few min
utes before he was going to appear
before the committee to tell what he
knew about the non-enforcement of
the law by the chief of police.

1 MERELY COMMENT
Politics is or are again in our midst.
The politicians are calling one an
other naughty names.
In the absence of exact information
the safest way is to believe all they
say or believe nothing.
Never mind the politics of the can
didates. Vote for the best man for
the public welfare.
As a reformer of cabarets, the Her
ald isn't much of a reformer of pub
lic utilities.
The object of the subway boomers
is NOT to relieve loop congestion.
It is to bring more customers to the
State street stores.
New York isn't the Unitea States,
and State street isn't Chicago.
Since Maje Bertie McCormick jined
the state militia the Trib has become
a great authority on war.
And Walter Fisher is working the
Trib for a lot of free advertising.
Who'n thunder cares what Walter
thinks about war?
By the way, keep your eye on
Hearst.
He'll be behind Teddy for president
and for intervention in Mexico.
Hearst still owns that million-acro
tract in Mexico.
And wants it policed by an Ameri
can army.
If Teddy breaks into the White
House, Hearst and Gary can butt into
Washington sassiety.
And Hearst and Gary are great
pals.
For light fiction read the faked-up
newspaper stories about that world
wide "anarchist plot."
The chances are that there ain't no
sich animile.

Madrid. 2 dynamite cartridges,
filled with enough explosive to blow
vessel to bits, found in hold of British
steamer Ro3ebank, bound from Phil
adelphia for English ports.
Ash Grove, Mo. Mayor J. E. Light
foot, died at his home after short illness.
