SEN. HAM LEWIS THROWS BOMB
INTO BUSINESS MEN'S MEET
Washington, April 28. Senator
Ham 'Lewis handed some pretty stiff
jolts to the Illinois manufacturers
who went to Washington, invited the
Illinois congressmen to a free feed
and attempted to tell them where to
head in on preparedness.
He wanted to know who was go
ing to pay for preparedness, telling
the manufacturers that they had
fought the income tax, and, having
been beaten in the courts, they then
tried to dodge the tax.
He told them they wouldn't enlist,
but would attend patriotic banquets;
and ventured the assertion that not
one of them had read the Chamber
Then he wanted to know whether
the co-operation they were talking
about meant co-operation with the
government or with their employes.
D. L. Felt of Chicago said they in
tended to co-operate with their men,
and Lewis said he was glad to hear
it, but said business men kicked
against every form of taxation to
pay for preparedness, and kicked
when congress wanted to make it
compulsory for business men to pay
their employes while in training and
o .hold their jobs for them.

MOVE COME FROM GEARY?
The City Hall, following the break
between Thompson and State's Att'y
Hoyne, today awaited the next move
in the war, which is expected to
come from Civil Service Commis
sioner Jos. Geary.
Geary, who is the Democratic
member of the board, was appointed
through the influence of Hoyne. At
one time he threatened to quit the
job, but the City Hall crowd got busy
and Hoyne advised Geary to remain.
On that occasion it was expected he
was going to let out a story that
would raise cain in the "hall."
If Geary wants to stir up trouble
by quitting his job following the
ousting of Nick Hunt, appointed
chief of detectives through Hoyne,
he can keep the newspapermen full
of "copy." Even the Thompson-Lun-din
crowd admit this.
For instance, he might let out a
lot of valuable information on the
conduct of the investigation of the
. fhunicipal tuberculosis sanitarium,
which resulted in the suicide of Dr.
Sachs. Again, he could tell of the
way the Eaton-Rowe split-salary
case was whitewashed by the civil
Nick Hunt, in explaining that he
was going to beat the action of the
mayor by quitting, said that he was
interfered with by "being assigned
men who boasted political influence.
All this came after Hoyne had Fran
cis A. Becker, Thompson-Lundin
politician, indicted on a charge of
selling protection to 21st ward dive
keepers. It is believed that Hoyne will now
retaliate by going through with a
grand jury investigation of the
Chief Healey admitted he had ac
cepted Hunt's rfesignation to take
