Insull is a Britisher.

Keeley, editor of the Herald, was
"whacked in the leading editorial of
the Tribune Tuesday because he,
Keeley, was "born and raised in Eng
land." The grandsons of Joe Medlll
raise the kick that "the present ed
itor of the Herald never did have
much sense' of history or humor."
Two years ago Jim Keeley, editor
the Herald, was working for the Trib
une on a salary of $30,000 a year. He
was the managing editor of the Trib,
had a big say-so and ran the place
some days from top copy room to
basement presses. When Will Irwin
wrote his series in Collier's Weekly
on American newspapers he stuck in
a picture of Keeley and wrote under
it "The World's Greatest News Im
presario." It was under Keeley that
the Tribune took on its name of "The
World's Greatest Newspaper.".
Keeley must have-changed some
since he was the Tribune's star man.
The Medill grandsons were willing to
admit that when they paid Keeley
b - $4U,uuu a year iu 1u.11 uie world S
W Greatest Newspaper, Keeley was a
real guy and a regular feller.
It's good entertainment for Chi
cago wise folks to see the brothers
of the trust press calling each other
names over the backyard fences.
Having slammed Keeley for his
English blood, some of us are won

WHAT WILLIE WANTS. -Willie
Hearst is howling himself red, white"
and blue in the face for an American
army of occupation in Mexico, and
he wants 500,000 American soldiers
on the job. He wants Uncle Sam to
police and pacify Mexico, so Willie
can make money out of that million
acre Mexican ranch. Of course,
Willie doesn't put it on that ground.
It wouldn't read well in his papers to
tell the truth. And just now Hearst
is sore because President Wilson
won't fall for his game. When Villa
raided Columbus and shot up the
town the American gang that wants
Mexico policed and pacified had its
tools in congress cocked and primed
for war. But Wilson pushed his puni
tive expedition across the border and
gave the gang a chance to cool off.
And Willie didn't get his war or his
army of occupation.
Wilson has to contend with a
greedy gang of Americans who would
plunge this country into an intermi
nable war with Mexico in order that
they might make millions out of their
land and mineral concessions. It may
pan out when the whole truth is
known that some folks on this side of
the border had a hand in some of
Villa's pernicious activities.
Anyhow, Wilson seems to know
what he is about
NOW WILL YOU BE GOOD?
The fellow who has been supply
ing himself with fuel from his neigh
bors' wood shed and coal bins for
some time has been seen in the act
and is definitely known. If this, oc

tremely humiliating L not seriously
painful. Gaston, Ind., Gazette.
