OF ALDERMANIC CANDIDATES
"It is vital to the welfare of the
city to have a council that will not
be subordinate to the mayor," says
the Municipal Voters' league in the
prelude of its report on qualifications
for aldermanic candidates.
"Chicago is pre-eminently a council-governed
city. It is the council
that creates local laws and frames
ordinances. It is the council that
grants fratfchises and regulates pub
lic service corporations, so far as
such regulation is left in the hands of
the city," says the league.
"Unless voters disregard party
lines, there are situations where ex
cellent candidates will be beaten and
where undesirable candidates will be
"The league urges women voters
to go to the polls next Tuesday. Let
them remember that the acts of the
city council affect the health, com
fort and safety of all women and chil
dren and that the aldermen appro
priate annually over $90,000,000 of
the people's money."

WAITE MAY CONFESS MURDER
OF FATHER-IN-LAW TODAY
New York, March 28. Dr. Arthur
Warren Waite is today expected to
confess to Dis't Att'y Swann that he
murderously poisoned his millionaire
father-in-law, John E. Peck of Grand
Confession will declare untrue
Waite's story of innocent participa
tion in poisoning, to which he has
clung for several days. Unless Dr.
Waite goes farther in his confession
than he indicated to his brother, he
will not implicate others.
With practically nothing but an
established case of insanity to save
Dr. Waite, her "studio" companion
from the death chair, Mrs. Margaret
Horton today began talking of flat
tering offers she has received to con
tinue her stage work.
The fact that she was with Dr.
'Waite when he purchased deadly cul
tures of tuberculosis and of typhoid
did not disconcert her.
Mrs. Horton still maintains inno
cence of her relations with Dr. Waite
in the Plaza studio. Her husband,
Harry Horton, believes in her im
plicity, referring to her as a "dove in
a flock of crows."
Possibility of a second arrest in
the case is imminent, according to
rumor at the district attorney's
office. The person is a man.

more foremen this week. Two elec
