In Judge KIckham Scanlan the peo
ple ot Cook County have an honest,
able and fearless man on the bench.
John J. Geraghty, head of the An
clent Order of Hibernians and well
known manufacturer ot badges and
buttons would make a fine city treasurer.
Andrew J. Ryan would grace a seat
on the United States bench.
John M. O'Connor, the popular State
Senator from tuo Twenty-ninth Dis
trict, has announced his candidacy for

The taxpayers of Chicago are
beaten out of thousands of dollars
annually by the telephone trui
Everybody knows that In alji outly
ing districts and even In some locali
ties in the loop district, the telephone
trust is not required to bury Its
wires. Costly brick, asphalt and ce
ment alleys aro laid all over the city
In which telephono poles aro erected
and are pormltted to stand. Who is
In on this graft?
GIvq tho peoplo a referendum vote
on tho telephono rates.
Anson H. Drown, well known Chi
cago lawyer, haa announced his can
didacy for alderman In tho Thirty-first
ward and has received tho Indorse
ment of tho Progressive Club. Tho
Thirty-first ward is good Progressive
territory, and Mr. Brown is getting
out among tho voters and making a
personal canvass. Assurances of sup
port have been given him by sorao
of the most active workers in the
ward. Mr. Brown was born in Charles
City, la., In 1869, and came to Chicago
In 1894. Ho went to work for tho
Chicago City Railway Company In
1896, and worked in that capacity for
two years, leaving to take a position
in the offices of tho International Har
vester Company. While employed by
the latter company ho spent his spare
time and evenings studying law and
was admitted to the bar. For the last
elghtoen years Mr. Brown has lived
In tho Thirty-first ward, his residence
being at 521 West 61st place. Ho
has law offices at 9 South LaSalle
Mr. Brown Is the type of man the

peoplo need In the City Council. Able,
energetic and wide awake, ho Is qual
ified in every "Way to serve them hon
estly and fearlessly. He has always
taken an active interest in the wel
fare of tho Thirty-first ward. He
started the agitation for sheltered ele
vated platforms and vestlbuled ele
vated trains and ho deserves credit
for it. Ho will make a flno alderman.
The Chicago Telephone Company,
which is suffering so much from
want of funds, according to certain
city "experts" that It will have to
ralso telephone rates on the people
In order to exist, paid 8 par cent in
dividends last year.
Think ot it I
Eight per cent on twenty-seven mil
lion dollars 1
This is tho company that started
with a capital stock of half a million
and now has a capital stock ot twenty-seven
It pays 8tfer cent annual dividend
on twenty-seven millions and puts up
a twenty-two story, modera offlct
Tho people of Chicago are such
easy marks that the phone crowd want
to get more out of them and asks for
an Increase in rates at the bands of
the City Council.
And two "experts" agree tfcat this
"poor" company is losing money!
In 1911 the Chicago Telephone Cos
pany paid 8 per cent In quarterly divi
dends of 2 per cent March II. t per
cent, Juno 30; 2 per cent, September
80; 2 per cent, December 10, 1911.
Here Is a nice little nest egg of
$2,160,000 divided up among tie stock
holders. When to this Is added the profits
paid tho "parent" Bell Telephone
Company, the amount grabbed off the
peoplo of Chicago is simply enormous.
Instead of raising telephone rates,
the City Council should lower them.
The old fashioned Trust phone
service In Chicago is getting worse
every day. Patrons are constantly
complaining ot it Wrong numbers
are constantly In evidence; the busy
signal is given frequently tor a "wrong
number", while the phone that Is
called Is not busy at all. Some ot the
operators are Impertinent Others of
them are Incompetent All of this
works for a lose of business, time and
patience. The whole system Is an-
.PHONE HUMBOLDT. 07S.
