JUDQE THOMAS F. SCULLY.
Cook County never had n bettor
mnn on its bench tlum Judge Thomas
F. Scully of the County Court.
His honesty, nblllty uiul sterling
character ure testified to by all who
The people endorsed this ostlmuto
of this Just Judgo when they re-elected
him last Fall by a largo majority at
Tho efforts of politicians and others
Interested In politics to besmirch
Judge Scully In any way will fail. Tho.
people have confidence In him and
his good record speaks for itself.
THE CITY TAX RATE.
For soveral years tho city of Chi
cago has spent moro than Its rovcuuo.
It Is now proposed to raise tho tax
rate to make good a deficit that was
bound to occur soonor or later.
There would bo moro disposition to
sanction nu Increase In taxes If tho
past record of the city government
gave moro evldcnco of economical
administration. It may not bo truo
that tho finance commlttco of tho city
council or its chairman Is to blame
for this situation; but it is obvious
that thoy lmvo not been ablo to pre
vent tho city administration from
overloading tho municipal budget or
from spending moro than could be
obtained from tho revenues.
In asking for an increased tax rate,
Mr. Rlchort, tho chairman of tho
finance commlttco, suffers from tho
mlsfortuno of tho past record of tho
city council. Tho city council has tho
power to put n check on expenditures;
but its attltudo has not been suf
ficiently onergotlc to prevent tho
administration from using tho public
revenues for its own purposes.
In ordor to Justify a roqucst for a
higher tax rato tho city council and
its flnanco commlttco must demon
strate n greater dogreo of Independ
ence If tho public rovonuos nro to bo
disbursed by tho city administration
without regard to question of economy
and without regard to tho desires of
tho city council, wo shall not bo will
ing to Indorso an Increased rato.
It is probably truo that tho city re
quires moro revenue. When tho city
council demonstrates that It is cap
able of administering city funds In an
economical manner thoro will bo no
disposition to withhold whatovor rev
enues aro necessary.

When George D. Ilcrron was ap

Princes' Islands conferences with the
Russian factious Senator Sherman of
Illinois caused to he Incorporated In
the Congressional Record a newspa
per article on Professor Herron. This
nrtlclo begins thus:
"George D. Herron, Socialist,
writer, lecturer, expelled pastor, and
free-lovo ndvoente, first loomed lnrge
on the American horizon when he per
.tailed his wife to divorce him and Im
mediately thereafter announced that
he nnd Sllss Carrie Rand were living
"This was the climax of one of

startled the country In years, foi Her
ron and his infinity contemplated a
sequel in n 'free-love colony' In Metu
rhen, N. J where all with the same
beliefs and money could come for
rest, love, nnd Joy."
Mr. Herron was, until 11)01, n minister with socialistic views which had
attracted more or less attention. Stories of thnt time said that tho mother of
Sllss Itttiul paid Sirs. Herron ?r0,000 for tho divorce. The Congregational
church of Grlnnell, In., Invchtlgnted Its pastor. He replied by publicly attack

SOMETHING NEW IN AVIATION
It Is a dull day Indeed when tho
public Is not told some new thing,

that Jules Vedrlnes Is planning tn
make a "roof-to-roof flight" from New
York to Chicago, starting his flight
from a Gotham sky-scraper, end It on
top of one of tha Windy City's big loop
buildings tind roosting for (lie night en
route on equally precarious perches,
Jules Vedrlnes Is u noted French
flyer who has acquired skill In alight
ing with his machine. This skill has
grown out of special service during tho
war. This was the hazardous work of
landing French secret service men be
hind the Genimn Hues and bringing
them back If possible. This service
requited landings In nil sort of places
and under nil sorts of conditions and
the no less difficult ascents. That the
aviator has survived Is proof of his
uncanny skill. Anyway, tho other day

make the mistake of thinking VedrlncH merely a clever flyer with a specialty.
