Judge TJhlir expressed amazement
over conditions between newsboys
and trust press drivers when they
were explained to him by Clayton

Pense told how newsies were

sales were not up to what the driver
thought they ought to be. He said

making a newsboy take more than
he can sell, pay for those he gets
stuck on and do whatever he blame
pleases with the left-overs.
"I didn't think such conditions
could exist in this city," said Judge
TJhlir. "It is a disgrace to Chicago,
this forcing newsboys to buy papers
they cannot sell. It should be
stopped by all means."
Smith was put on a peace bond of
?50 for one year.
