PUBLIC SENTIMENT. President
Sunny of the Chicago Telephone Co.,
. speaking of ihe automatic deal, says:
"We are not going against public sen
timent. It was clearly set out in the
contract that public sentiment must
not be against the transaction. And
we are the judges of that."
Perfectly safe position, Sunny, old
boy. If you judge public sentiment
by what you read in newspapers that
are in with the deal, why, of course;
public sentiment will be-what the ed
itors say it is. And it may be that
their judgment of what public senti
ment is may be influenced by read
ing your ads in their papers. I say
that public sentiment is against that
automatic deal, and that the loop
press is deliberately misrepresenting
that sentiment .
NO QUITTER, ANYHOW. There
is one thing can be said for Fran
cisco Villa that little Casabianca
didn't have a thing on him when it
came to standing on the burning
deck whence all but him had fled.
Diaz, Huerta and several ex and
would-be rulers of Mexico, whose
names we have forgotten long ago,
hiked out of Mexico as promptly as
possible after the bubble burst.
Not so Pancho. He has been in
easy striking distance of the United
States, where a couple of wives and
a reputed handsome fortune await
him, ever since Carranza put a fancy
price on his bodyless Fead. He might
have flitted across the line about any
time he wanted to. But, instead of
doing so, he is sticking like a cockle
burr in a Kansas farmer's beard.
Villa may be a bandit and a con
scienceless assassin now. We guess
he is, for the same papers which
lauded him as a patriot and a hero
six months ago say so. But he is
sure no quitter, which is more than
any of the other deposed leaders of
Mexico can truthfully assert
TRAVESTY, SAYS THE JUDGE.
Judge Elbert Gary pronounces the
Youngstown indictments of himself
and the big steel corporations, for
conspiracy to fix wages of labor and
prices of steel, a "travesty."
"A burlesque treatment" is one of
the definitions of the word "traves
ty," and, having closely observed the
results of indicting . corporations,
Judge Gary may be justified in seeing
a burlesque feature about those in
dictments in meek little Mahoning
But we are mightily interested in
that "burlesque treatment," judge.
If the big steel corporations of this
country can be punished for fixing so
low as to produce those bloody riots
at Youngstown, it will not be a trav
esty, but a miracle.
We've seen laborers fined into pau
perism for conspiring to fix their
wages, but, at this time, can't put
our finger on an instance wherein
the corporation got such a dose of
Niles friends are looking forward
with interest to the lecture of Dr.
Edward Amherst Ott, a former well
known Farmington teacher who has
won fame on the lecture platform,
which will be on Tuesday evening.
Dr. Ott will give his famous lecture,
"Sour Grapes," which he has given
on 2,000 occasions and before over
1,000 people. Warren (O.) Chro.
