Greatest Insane 'Asylum is trying to
get back to normal.
Cartoonist McCutcheon has been
more than a Chicago Tribune car
toonist he has been a national in
stitution. With his sympathetic,
homely, human art he has appealed
to the iest emotions of men, women
and children everywhere. His good
humored, kidding of our national foi
bles always helped without hurting,
and the quiet laughter he. provoked
was so wholesome 'that it warmed
the heartand made us feel good long
after we had passed from the car
toon. He took the cave men and
their women away from the paved
streets and cliffs of stone and steel
back to the country where nature is
sweet There was no envy, malice,
hatred, venom or other poison for
the mind in the picture stories that
made their author a healer and
soother. We can stand the rotten
ness of the editorial column of the
Tribune. We can stand the degener
acy of its news columns. For there
are other papers we can read. But
it's almost a tragedy ta drag Mc
Cutcheon down into the mire of po
litical pollution in which the rest of
the once great newspaper is wallow
ing like a fat old sow. It is a crime
that McCutcheon should be com
pelled to curdle a once sweet Soul
and put spite and venom and villainy
in his rotten cartoons of President 1
A GREAT OPPORTUNITY. Can-,
didate Hughes now has the chance"
of a life time." He can try out hia
arbitration theory on that New York'
strike. All he has to do is to per-,
suade Shonts to arbitrate. And that
ought to be easy, because Wall street
is friendly to Mr. Hughes and can
certainly put the screws to Shonts
and make that disciple of The-Pub-lic-be-Damned
VanderbQt obey or
ders. This sure is a great chance
for Wall street to play a trump card
for its presidential candidate. Hop to
it, Mr. Hughes.
THE TORRENS SYSTEM
. By Carl Sandburg ,
Before Joe Connery got into office
as county recorder nobody except
lawyers, experts and high-muck-a-mucks
talked much about the Tor
rens system. '
The Torrens. system? Well, most
people thought it was something likfe
twilight sleep or a new kind of chi
ripody or massage.
It's a plan that throws the county
government behind your land title.
If you buy a niece of land and you
go with a real estate man to the
county recorder's office to get your
title papers, the Torrens system fixes
it so the county stands behind your
title. If you pay for your land no
lawyer nor experts nor fancy con
men of any kind can take away your
land because of bum title papers.
That's what the Torrens system does.
The county election this Novem
ber is in one sense a referendum on
the Torrens system.
If Connery loses then the people of
Cook county might as well kiss good
by to the Torrens system and effec-
tive, aggressive operation of it tha
next four years. '
