The majority of tbo aldermen did not
feel tbat the council bo trusted wltb
the selection of a mayor, and others
raised the objection that tho peoplo
would thereby have- no volco in tho
selection of their executive.
Tho contemplated chango in tho
aldermanlc system was first brought
to tho council In a bill providing for
four years instend of two-year terms
for tho city fathers and provided for
ono alderman from each of thlrty

The So-Called Legal Fraternity
Rptten With Alleged Lawyers,

Tho Chicago legal fraternity needs
a purgative. It is too full of crooks
and blackmailers who nro living ipon

who have glvon up all sorts of Jobs
where they had an opportunity to got
hold of other pcoplo's troubles, llko
discharged and discredited former
assistant public attorneys, and other
vermin of that ilk aro reported to bo
thriving Just now. Ono long-haired,
splndlc-shnnkcd scoundrel, who held
nn oulclal Job long enough to got on
both sides of a certain dlvorco caso,
is reported to havo qulto a meal

Important Information concerning
tho registration of Liberty Loan bonds,
as given out by the bond department
of tho Federal Reservo Bank of Chi
cago contains the following quotation
from a letter from tho Treasury de
"With refcronca to accoptlng nub
scrlpttons for bonds to bo registered
in tho names of persons giving only
initials rather than tho full namo, I
havo to say that it is tho intent of tho
Department, not for its own sako, but
for tho Bako of holders of registered
bonds, to havo them registered in such
manner as to enable tho said holders,
or their legal representatives, to dis
pose of them In tho simplest and
readiest manner. Bonds issued to
women under their initials, or under
tho Initials of tholr husbands, aro not
readily transferable in caso of tho
death of tho holdor.
"Though letters of administration
would bo Issued in tho logal namo of
tho deceased, and tho bonds would be
Inscribed In her name, under her In
itials, or thoso of her husband, aa tho
caso might be. Tho letters ot admin
istration and tho bonds would not
agroo as to tho namo, and thorcforo
tho administrator ot Mrs. Sarah A.
Smith, say, would havo to provo that
sho and Mrs. Thomas W. Smith (or
Mrs. S. Smith) wero ono and tho same
person. It is to avoid troubles of this
character that tho Department has in
sisted on receiving the legal namo of
persons subscribing for registered
"Of course, tho Department cannot
rofuso to issuo bonds under initials if
tho parties lntorosted Insist upon it,
but it is requested that you, in all
cases whero It is possible, insist on
receiving tho full names of persons
subscribing for registered bonds."
