. HOYNE'S ELECTION. ? The elec
tion of Maclay Hoyne as state'B at
torney indicates that the people of
Illinois appreciate backbone, nerve
and grit There was more ticket
splitting for Hoyne than for any
other Democratic candidate. His
election -was purely a non-partisan
It was a hard slap at the City Hall
crowd. Hoyne carried three of the
biggest Republican wards, among
them the 25th, which never before
in its history gave a Democrat a ma
jority. The prosecution of the arson trust,
the wire-tapping trust, the clairvoy
ant trust and the policemen 'who pro
tected them evidently pleased the
people. Hoyne's latest and probably
most sensational chapterof his career
came' in his feud with the forces of
Mayor Thompson, his raids on .the
City Hall and his indictment of Chief
of Police Healey.
Through his assistant, Ed Flem
ing, Hoyne Issued the following
statement last night: "I thank the
voters of Chicago for the confidence
they have shown in me and my work.
I expect to show the confidence is
FICKLE MAN! It was Virgil, the
Latin poet, who first called woman j
a "flckie tmng.
That was because his hero, Aen- j
eas, did not have the self-control' or i
the willtpower to combat the wiles ai
beautiful Dido, Queen of Carthage, x
But Virgil was wrong. Dido nevei
was more set upon one idea than
when Aeneas was in her palace. Hei
mind was made up from the start
and she did not change it until after
her hero had left
The truth is, Aeneas was the
"fickle thing." He wavered constant
ly between decisions. He wanted to
continue his journey, still he wanted
to remain with Dido. Uncertainty
ravaged his mind.
Stop at any busy corner and watch
Aeneas and Dido of today. Many of
them are walking in opposite direc
tions. . Why do they not collide,, in
the confusion of the crowd?
Because, if you will watch closely,
you will notice Dido walk in almost a
straight line and Aeneas, going the
opposite way, zigzagging around her
and many of her who happen td walk
toward him. To the left; to the ,
right; to the nearest open space he '
wanders, almost bewildered and fear
ing to'' collide with Dido.
It is because man is obliging and
respectful to woman, Ja ft? NQt by
any means, as many a Dido who has
hung to Straps ia-ihe street car while
an Aeneas sat comfortably before
The matter is. Aeneas makes ud
his mind on the spur of the moment,
while Dido thinks and reasons, then
decides and then determines. Aeneas
is too impatient to go through that
But Dido has become bo used to it
that between thought and determina
tion is as a flash to her. She has
cultivated the habit of determina
So it is in all walks of life in' the
office, at home, on the street and in
the public hall. Dido determines,
while Aeneas just decides. That's the
cause of the universal joke on the
power in the office who is juBt a
humble, obeying husband at home.
If Dido and Aeneas both deter
mined, they would keep to the right
