You've got one chance left to finish as a success. People "Will forgive
mistakes and the man who makes them if he acknowledges them and
profits by them. Your chance is to go it alone and be mayor for ALL of
the people of Chicago, without a thought of partisan politics. Earn the
confidence and gratitude of the people and you can laugh at parties," poli
ticians and newspapers. Right about face, Bill. You're headed the wrong
way. Back up. Start over again. Try going it alone. Be mayor your
self. Do fearlessly what YOU think the people want you to do as mayor
and don't bother about political consequences. No politics- is the best po-
tics in a' town that wants non-partisan government. Sincerely,
N. D. COCHRAN.
