HUGHES MEET A FIZZLE.. I
witnessed a political stump meeting
held on corner North av. and Cali
fornia, which would make any Wil
sonite feel full of joy.
A Hughes speaker, surrounded by
a considerable crowd, was making
his foremost attempt in knocking
Wilson's policy- and administration,
but in vain. "Every knock was a
boost." Never could this expression
be more vividly "demonstrated than
it was at this meeting. Every state
ment uttered by the speaker was fol
lowed by a "Hurrah for Wilson" from
The speaker couldn't proceed.
Above the noise that the , speaker's
machine made in speeding away you
could distinctly hear the crowd yell:
"Hurrah for Wilson! Hurrah for
Wilson!" Al. C. Mayerson, 1106 S.

HOW ABOUT RESULTS? I took
an examination for bridgetender in
April, 1916. The results or mark
ings have not been posted yet. I un
derstand there were over 1,000 ap
plicants who took this examination. I
had to lose two days' pay, as the phy
sical and mental tests were held on
different dates. The administration
made over 70 sixty-day appoint
ments. Is that the reason they do
not post this list or are they wait
ing until after election.
I like a good many others lost my
time and money taking this exam
ination, while Mayor Thompson
keeps his political pets in these jobs.
PARK CONSOLIDATION. The
treatment- accorded labor in the
south park system is sufficient in
centive for any wage earner to vote
"Yes" on park consolidation. The
dominating clique controlling park'
affairs, headed by Judge Payne
(who, by the way, is legal adviser for
the A. M. and other labor-hating
agencies), have spared no efforts in
exterminating organized labor in the
The wages and conditions of the
employes have become well-night in
tolerable. Under the false guise of
economy, organized labor has been
displaced by cheap scab labor, which
has proven more of an expense than
a saving to the public. For years
labor has endeavored to place a rep
resentative upon the board, but Big
Business has always intervened.
Vote to oust the present plutocratic
ring that labor may have at least a
chance of securing a living wage.

ANSWERS "AMERICAN." Permit
me to answer one signing. "Amer
