his life in his great effort to finally settle up the race riot
cases now pending against the city.
CHINA DEMANDS GOOD ROADS I "
Oriental Country Awake to the Neces-
y 01 immediate Development
of Its Highways.
A plea for good roads as a neces
sity for the proper development of
China Is made by the Oriental Motor
of Shanghai, which began publication
a year ago to encourage Interest in
motor use. Asking where the United
States would have been If the good
roads movement had not been ear
nestly supported throughout the conn
try, the editor says:
Tet at this time of greatest devel
opment In the making of roads China
lies dormant If any nation In the
world needs roads, good roads and
national highways. It Is China. Means
of communication In the country are
Inadequate and medieval, transcon
tinental travel Is only possible by
water at the rim of the country, while
the great heart of the nation Is still
iB&ccesslble to any mode of transpor
tation except the most primitive.
"China can never become a nation
nntil her roads are developed. With
tbem the penetration of the Interior,
both for commerce and pleasure,
would mean a few hours or a few days
by motor. The people of the Interior
would be brought into touch dally
with motors and motorists from all
sections of the nation. They would
begin to realize thnt there are parts
of the country other than their
own province and city, and the great
welding Influence which would make
China a nation united would begin."

traitor or anyone who deserts

This word owes Its origin to
Emmanuel, one of the first
dukes of Savoy, whose domin
ions lay between the two con
testing houses of Spain and
France, and who was, accord
ingly, forced to temporize and
fall In with whichever power ap
peared to be In the ascendancy.
Being so frequently obliged to
change his allegiance, the duke
had a coat made which was blue
on one side and white on the
other, and might be worn either
side out Where In the Interests
of diplomacy he thought it best
to represent the Spaniards, the
duke would wear the blue side
outermost while when he was
working with tne French, bis
coat would appear to be white.
It was for this reason that he
gained the surname of "The
Turncoat" to distinguish him
from the other dukes of the
honse of Savoy, also named Em
manuel, and he term hns come

lot of mess in the boxing and wrest
ling game. Ticket scalping at base
ball and football games is also receiv
ing attention from Aid. Dcvcreaux.
Like Aid. Maypole, of the Twenty
eighth ward, Aid. Joseph H. Smith of
the Thirty-second ward, is ever on the
alert to introduce measures in the
council which will be of benefit to the
colored people, not only of his own
district but the entire city. Aid.
Smith also takes a leading part in
fighting the cause of organized labor.
In Aid. Czekala and Piotrowski of
the Thirty-third ward, the small busi
ness man, the laboring man and the
fatherless children, have real friends.
Both aldermen represent a district on
the far northwest side which calls for
constant vigilance and self sacrifice in
oidcr that their poor constituents do
Probably no member of the council
has sought to do more for the people
in a direct way than Md. Edward
Kaindl of the Thirty-fourth ward. As
chairman of the committee on high
costs, Aid. Kaindl has conducted a
never ceasing fight against the "rent
hogs," the profiteering coal dealer, the
price boosting grocer, meat dealer,
and other merchants who would have
the average family at their mercy were
it not for the ever wakefulness of Aid.
Kaindl and his committee.
As chairman of the committc on
judiciary Aid. Oscar Olsen, of the
Thirty-fifth ward, must be on the job
every minute, to see that "Big Busi
ness," and other interests do not put
over measures that would be detri
mental to the common citizen. Were
it not for Aid. Olsen and his commit
tee, Chicago would now have a mov
ing censorship, and other ordinances
which would make conditions intoler
able for the people.
Thanks are due Aid. John P. Garner
of the Thirty-seventh ward, who, as
chairman of the committee on health,
put through the council the minimum
heat ordinance, which real estate men
and landlords fought so hard to de
feat Already this ordinance has been
upheld by the courts, a south side
landlord having been fined $25 in the
Municipal court As chairman of this
committee. Aid. Garner has much to

the entire community.
Credit must also go to Aid. Max
Adamowski, of the Thirty-eighth ward.
who introduced the original minimum
heat ordinance, and who, while chair
man of the high cost committee, did
much in exposing profiteers of all
kinds. Tax payers owe Aid. Adam
owski a great deal for his recent ex
posure of street paving contractors.
(Continued from page 8.)
Aid. A. O. Anderson, of the Thirty
ninth ward, has distinguished himself
by his persistent efforts for a strictly
business administration of the city's
finances, thus looking out for the wel
fare and protection of the tax payers.
As chairman of the sub-committee on
police, he has aided in bringing to the
surface graft and crookedness in the
Ex-service men have another stanch
friend in Aid. Chris A. Jensen of the
Fortieth ward, who was among those
who went "over there" to fight for his
country. Aid. Jensen also took a lead
ing part in the campaign against the
new constitution because, he said, it
worked against the poor and in favor
of "big business."
Aid. Edward R. Armitage of the
Forty-first ward, one of Mayor
Thompson's leaders in the council, has
never failed to come to the aid of Aid.
Anderson or Aid. Jackson in the sup
port of measures beneficial to the col
ored people. As chairman of the
committee on schools, fire and civil
service, Aid. Armitage has originated
and advocated many reforms in behalf
of the thousands of municipal em
ployes. He also did his share in se
curing passage of the minimum heat
Still another hero of the world war
in the council is Aid. Dorsey Crowe
of the Forty-second ward, who was in
the air craft service and who nearly
lost his life in a fall with his machine.

Probably no member of the coun
cil has fought so hard for a square
deal for his constituents as has Aid.
Arthur Albert of the Forty-third ward.
Although the youngest member of the
council, his aggressiveness has brought
him forward as one of the best known
aldermen in the city. His fight against
grafters in the police department has
attracted much attention and his con
stituents are more than grateful to
him. Aid. Albert also exposed condi
tions in the Sic department and went
so far as to attempt to have indict
ments voted by the grand jury.
Aid. Leo Klein, associate of Aid.
Albert, has made a persistent fight
against the traction companies to force
them to lower the steps on street cars
and to provide other and better ac
commodations for patrons of the sur
It was through the efforts of Aid
Thomas Wallace of the Forty-fourth
ward, that the people learned about
the expert fee scandals. Aid. Wallace
also fought the proposed Broadway
sewer which would have cost the tax
payers in his section of the city $2,

Both Aid. Leo Brieske and Aid
John Hadcrlein of the Forty-fifth
ward, have lined up consistently i
against high taxes, special assess-,
ments and other burdens piled on the j
poor and middle class property
No other section of the city is so
well equipped with public markets as
that portion represented by Aid.

ward. Aid. Caspers, soon after his
election to the council, appreciating

farms on the northern outskirts of the '
city, began a campaign for public
markets where the consumer could
purchase vegetables, fruits and other
food supplies at a minimum of cot.
Aid. Caspers was successful in ob
taining the cooperation of the farm
ers in this worthy undertaking.
Aid. Frank J. Link of the Forty
eighth ward, gave his aid to Aid. Wal
lace and to Aid. Frankhauser in fight
ing the $2,000,000 Broadway sewer.
Aid. Link also has been a consistent
champion of the thousands of people
who use the elevated lines in their ef
forts to obtain better service. He has
been a leader in the campaign to make
Chicago the air craft center of the
United States, being chairman of the
city council committee on aviation.
Aid. E. I. Frankhauser of the Forty
ninth ward, was in the front ranks of
those fighting the rent profiteers and
he voted right on the minimum heat
ordinance, as he always has done on
measures beneficial to the people.
Development of new residential ter
ritory where the man of small or mod
erate means could build his home, has
been the special hobby of Aid. Charles
G. Hendricks of the Fiftieth ward,
with the result that large numbers of
families have found havens in the new
West Edgewater and other districts of
the far northwest side. Aid. Hen
dricks consistently refused to be
dragged into schemes concoted to em
barass Mayor Thompson and his ad
ministration. Merry Christmas and Happy New
Year to all and may the members of
the next city council show as good
records as those pointed out today to
the many readers of The Broad Ax.

CHAR3HNGLY youthful Is Cora,
modern derivative of ancient
Greek. Many feminine names In
Greece were merely men's names
with a feminine termination In a"
or "e," Irrespective of their meaning,
and this is true of Cora, which, quaint
ly enough, signifies maiden.
However she is derived, Cora Is the
most feminine of names, and was
given to some of the most alluring
heroines of romance. Originally the
nane was taken from Persephone's
title, "Kore," a maiden, the Boetlan
poetess who won a wreath of victory
at Thebes. Corinna was the next
step In the evolution of Cora, and she
came about through the literary habit
of reviving old Greek names, a feMsh
with enterprising writers In search of
a fresh title for a heroine.
Madame de Stael named her bril
liant Corinna after the Boetlan poet
ess, above mentioned, and that estab
lished her fame forever In France,
where she has been handed down
from one French maid to another
through generations of poetic fancy.
In Italy she becomes Gorlnne through
the "Henghlst," a chronicle of the
Middle ages. Lord Byron makes her
Cora In his famous poem, and through
him her vogue Is unquestionably es
tablished in England and America.
Modern writers favor her, both as
Corinna and Cora. She Is the capri
cious heroine of many a modern story,
the most memorable example perhaps
being the Cora of Booth Taridngtoa
book, The Flirt." Poets have never
neglected her, especially the poets at
the pastoral age. Her significance
and the youthful charm Invariably as
sociated with her through her evels
ttea, made her almost a synonym fez
raral maiden. Just as Sylvia Is a gaa
eral term for shepherdess. "Whea arj
