BREAK THEM UP
Reform Organizations Working for
Profit Are Far Too Numerous in
Chicago for the City's Good
Backed by Scaly Lawyers They Skin the
Unfortunate and Torture Victims of
Divorce and Other -Courts ,
Chicago Is filled with legal black
mailers. Most of thorn opornto undor tho
name of "roforin."
Savo tho mark!
Re form 1
Tho originators of most of theso
Chicago reform organizations uro
crooks long nlnoo past redemption.
When thoy nro not attacking pub
lic men thoy nro attacking private
Tho divorce courts nro searched
by thorn to discover some now avo
nuo to blackmail pooplo on account
of tho. misfortunes of soma of thorn.
Theso aro tho pooplo, mnlo and
female, who aro giving Chicago a
bad nnmo boforo tho world.
Most of thorn should bo In Jollot.
Many ot thorn should bo in jail.
In official quarters too many In
digent lawyers aro so busy searching
for moans to feather tholr own nests
at tho oxponse of human mlsory that
nothing need be hoped for In that
Greed, Graft and Got There aro
tho mottoos of our blackmailing ro
formors. Rend tho list of "uplifting" organi
zations In tho directory and you will
have a faint ldoa of what a hlvo tho
crooked roformors form In Chicago.
No wondpr tho Chicago Herald and
Examiner In tho'courso of n ringing
editorial on April 3, 1919, said:
This town doesn't need nny "re
deeming." Chicago Is a glorious, pro
gressive, industrious city. It Is not
the rat-hole, tho stonch pot, tho
crime-Infested lair of license and sedi
tion that some people who llvo horo
try to paint It
It Is not Sodom, nor yot Gomorrah.
It Is a city with credit in tho markets
ot tho world; a city ot churches;
n city of spirit and prldo; a city ot
honor and gallantry; a city ot blood
and Iron, ot enorgy and limitless
courage and sacrlflco when it is nec
essary to make war or pay for mak
Our town has no rod light district
It Is free of open gambling. Its
streets know not tho heel-tap of tho
unfortunnto woman who lives a llfo
of oxpndlnncy unless, porchanco, an
amateur wanders In from outsldo the
Iladly as wo need a zoning law and
Improved housing conditions, wo have
nothing to compare with the cartoon
ist's and professional sociologist's tra
ditional Idea of the "slum."
The one thing the matter with this
town Is that It Is Infested with Pald
knockers. Some ot these traducors
aro paid by busybodles whoso sys
tems aro so full of theories about
how other pooplo should holmvo that
they would osplode If thoy could not
work them off, And tho only way
thoy can work them off is by harass
ing their fellow man.
Others aro paid by persons woll
lntentloned, but totally ignorant of
llfo as It is lived br the roal, red
bloodod human bolngs. This class
Is, porhaps the most dangerous, be
cause It is sincere, and In its narrow
SU11 others are maintained la elab
orate officos by interests representing
great wealth, whoso principals could
not "get to first base" If they came
out into tho opon daylight and tried
to put over their selfish schemo upon
tho public Undor tho cloak ot "re
form" thoy work through tholr hired
k tools more clerks, always mon of
personal rospectablllty, but not al
ways knowing what uso Is bolng
mado bohlnd tho scones of tho bacon
thoy bring home.
Now, just a word concerning tho
eminent citizens whoso names often
appear on the letterheads of theso
knocking so-called organizations,
which are doing moro to Injuro Chi
cago In the eyes of tho outsldo world
than any other ngonclcs. This nows
paper behoves that most of thoso
gontlomen carolossly lond tholr
names to such "movements" without
knowing Just what tholr activities
consist of, nor what Is tholr offoct.
Thoy bollove they aro doing some
thing for tho city. Thoy are busy
mon. Thoy write a chock once a
year, and hopo it Is doing somo good
Had they tho timo to investigate they
would withdraw tholr patronage, kick
tho long-haired paid promotors out of
tholr offices and decldo honceforth to
do a little thinking on their own ac
count as to what Is best tor tho city
in which tholr lives and tholr money
Things have come to a pass in
Chicago whore if one family or one
man gots a personal grudgo against a
public official or an institution ho
will engago in an incessant campaign
of calumny, libel and mud-sllnglng
against the town against the wholo
3,000,000 ot us It ho bollovos In that
way ho can satisfy his porsonal ani
It is tlmo to call a halt It is
timo for tho pooplo ot Chicago thorn
selves to tako hold of their own city
and drive into tho lnko tho llttlo
handful ot nasty calumlnators. It Is
time wo jerked out a fow of thoso
slandnrons tongues that aro everlast
ingly wagging to tho detriment of our
city and our pooplo,
It Is tlmo wo forced back Into tha
gullets of somo ot tho traitors in our
midst n portion of tho poisonous
printer's ink they have been vomiting
for years upon the best community
of its size that God ever permitted
to grow upon this earth.
It Is tlmo we stilled the brazen
bolls of hell by which a handful ot
Judasos among us have heralded to
tho world a shame that doos not
We of Chicago are not rotten
hearted. Our town Is not rotten. And
wo are perfoctly able to work out
our own destiny, without the aid ot
a fow little gangs ot secretive, sneak
ing, kept "reformers."
But it Is typical ot the meanness
which animates the llttlo cliques of
solf-appolntod guardians of the
3,000,000 people who llvo in this
city. Tho "reformers" never havo
come out to bo countod, but a liberal
estlmato is that there are about 300
of them one-hundredth of 1 per cent
ot tha population.
