Oimgs to eat and their wages were
too low to permit them torbuy food
they wanted. You know, Mr. Buehl,
there's something wrong with your
system of handling your girls.
Buerl Yes, there is something
wrong with our system.
Fairbanks Pay a little more
wages and you'll get better results.
These girls stule what ought to have
been coming to them in wages.
"I've never in my life been in any
trouble like this before," said No. 1
of the girls. "If you give me a
chance you'll never see me here
again. I'll die first"
"That's what they all say," Judge
Rooney commented. Then he strok
ed his chin and told the three girls
he would put them on probation.
Att'y Fairbanks stepped to girl No.
1 when it was all over and said:
"Now, give me that bottle."
The girl's eyes got wet. A tear
ran down her cheek.
"Give me that bottle," -said Fair
banks. "Don't be a fool."
She shrugged her shoulders, dip
ped into her handbag and took out a
bottle marked bichloride of mercury.
"God help me," were the words
from a choking throat. "I would
have drank it if they had sent me to
the Bridewell."
And the two lawyers, Emmicke and
Fairbanks, up-to-date hot political
enemies, walked away saying it was
a good day's work.

HUGHES TO WAIT OVERTURES
FROM BULL MOOSERS
New York, June 15. Continuation
of the hard work of conferring con
stantly with persons who want to do
things for him, and the harder work
of talking to persons who want him
to do things for them, marked the
start of the day for Charles Evans
Hughes, Republican presidential can
didate. When he finished with the tele
grams and mail a crowd of callers
was on hand. One by one they filed
in, made their pledge or request and
filed out.
Strategy rather than immediate
action is now the watchword atthe
headquarters when the rampant
Bull Moose party is spoken of. The
Hughes men are inclined to let Ted
dy and his followers of the Moose
herd, Hiram Johnson, Robins,. Bur
dock, et al., talk things over for a
while before the heavy work of
bringing them into camp starts.
