THE 11TH WARD GAME. Al
though I am not a member of the So
cialist party, I have voted the ticket
for the past three years. I am still
a member of the G. O. P. organiza
tion. So yousee I am a traitor to
the Republican party, a traitor to
The voters of the 11th' ward re
elected Aid. Cullerton to the city
council. Cullerton was an alderman
when Mrs. O'Leary's cow was a calf.
Way back in 1871 the' cow at least
started something. But up to this
day Cullerton has accomplished
nothing worth while. -
The City Hall Republicans were in
structed to vote for Cullerton at the
last aldermanic election. Cullerton
is a Democrat. The Republican can
' didate was forced to withdraw in the
11th ward. Fine'politics, eh? Half
of the individuals of the 11th ward
,could not find Lake Michigan if they
walked "east until their hats fidated.
They would get lost on Madison
street if they went out alone.
What do they care about vile
smelling alleys? What do they care
about filthy streets and congested
sewers? What do they care about
inadequate police protection? The
tunnel under the B. &. R. R. ele
vation on ' Wood street was not
cleaned all last .winter. It is. dirty,
and too dark and dangerous to walk
through. Robey street needs an arc
light between the two elevations. It
is pitch dark 'there at night and it is
, a haven for stick-ups.
We have another alderman in the
11th ward, a young man by the name
of Herman Krumdick- Get busy,
Herman! Don't let Cullerton lead
you round by your nose. You can
be one of the! leaders in the council.
Just followsome of the leaders like
Kerinedy of the' 27th, Rodriguez of
the 15th, Kerner of the lt2h and a
few others. Do it now, Herman!

ORTHODOXY VS. LIBERALISM.
In a Forum article entitled "Liberal
Christianity," Jas. Craig lambasts
Billy Sunday in general and Chris
tianity in particular. I will not say
more about Billy Sunday than I be
lieve he has done more for mankind
in the last dozen years than liberal
Christianity has done in the last doz
en centuries. But I will not take issue
on Billy Sunday, for I wish to dis
'cuss with Mr. Craig orthodox Chris
tianity versus the alleged Free
"By their fruits ye shall know
them" is an old saying and the foun-,
dation of my challenge to Mr. Craig
to show to the world in what respect
his so-called free thought has shown
itself the panacea for human ills. I
likewise challenge Mr. Craig or any
other person to show wherein the
alleged free thought has helped hu
manity. Has it erected great hos
pitals for the care of the sick, the
lame and blind, and mentally inca
pacitated, tEe unfortunate victims
of human appetite?
Wherein is the free thought (out
side of the anarchists) doing aught
to lift men up, to stimulate ambition,
to encourage good citizenship, to
produce an improved civilization; to
make man his brother's keeper?
Pray, Mr. Editor, what has it done to
take hold of humanity and pour in
its wounds a healing balm that will
provide the missing link?
To be sure it provides .peanut in
tellects with a freedom they are illy
prepared to exercise, but no real,
everlasting, altruistic service to brok
en' humanity. Please, Mi Editor,
tejl me where it is exemplified except
where the force of the Christ' has
spread abroad its" precious influence.
If the combined ingenuity of nian
can invent a system whereby human
ity will be bettered, I am welling to
fall in lino,, co-operate, sacrifice.
Anarchy cannot fulfill this func
