REMOVAL OF FATHER M'CABE A
LOSS TO CHICAGO.
Vciy Rev. Francis Xnvlcr McCabo.
the distinguished president of Do Paul
University, has been transferred by
his superiors to Kansas City, Mo. Tho
removal of this great and good man
from his activities hi this city is a
distinct loss to Chicago. For years
he has been a potent power In molding
public sentiment in, tho right direction
and has at all times been foremost in
every movement for tuo advancement
of the best interests of tho whole com
munity without refercnco to creed,
politics or race.
Droadmlndcd and generous ho has
lett the Imprint of his noblo ana en
thusiastic nature upon everything with
which he has associated his name.
Do Paul University has grown,
broadened and strengthened under his
direction and to enumornto tho ac
cumulated eloments of strength and
usefulness ho has brought to It would
till a column.
Tho Eaglo Joins with Its fellow citi
zens In extending to Father McCubo
its best wishes for a happy and pros
perous future nnd together with all
Chlcagonns takes this occasion of ex
pressing its regret at losing so good
and vnluablo a member of tho community.
CHICAGO POLICE ARE UNDER
PAID. Asphalt rakers employed by tho city
get J5.7C a day. That Is 83 cents moro
than tho highest paid patrolman on
Truck drivers employed by tho city
get $6 a day. That Is $1.07 a day moro
than tho pay of the pollcoman who has
been traveling beat for fifteen years.
Sower laborers get $4.45 a day. That
Is 49 cents a day moro than a pioba
tionnry patrolman recolves. e
Even tho lowly whlto wing who
sweeps tho streets gets within 29
cents a day as much as tho policeman
who has worked eleven months.
"rin vou Bunnose tho public over
stops to think of facts llko those?"
asked Michael O'Connor, head of tho
policemen's organization. "And If thoy
do, how can they expect to hold a po
lice force together on such wages?"
"And counting hours spent In court,
on reserve, drilling, and shooting, a
patrolman works on an nvcrago of
twelvo hours a day. Ten hours Is a
long day for nearly all other city em
ployes." Here aro a few moro facts:
Lathers, plasterers, roofers, masons,
and pavors get $8 it day. Tho highest
wage of patrolmen is $1.93.
Plasterers' assistants get $0.10;
wood finishers, $0.S0; muckers, $0.00;
and mechanics' helpers, $5.fi0. Patrol
men who have been Jn tho department
two years get $4.27 a day.
City hall clerks get ns high as $3,300
nnri .von inntnr clerks aro paid as high
as $1,500. Patrolmen in tholr first
year of sorvlco get $1,440.
"And overcoats cost us $70 instead
of tho $27 wo paid a few years ago,"
continued O'Connor, whose - forto
seems to Ho in comparison. "A blouso
Is now $30. It used to bo $9. Trousers
are $17. against $6 four years ago.
Shoes are $12 to $15 and they used to
bo $3.50 to $4."
"Every request for pay increases
made by bona nde unions was granted
by tho council flnanco committeo,"
O'Connor said. "Tho patrolmenusked
for an Increase of $300 a year. They
didn't got Jt. Why? Woll, tho patrol
men have an organization, but it Is for
social, athletic, and oillciency' pur
KELLY BOOMS CHICAGO
That is what D. F. Kelly, general
manager of Monde! Brothers and vice
president of the Chlcagp Boosters'
"Heretofore a comparatively small
group of men hate done all thu big
things in this Hty. Now it is timo
for every business man in Chicago to
do his share to mako Chicago the
greatest city In the country.
"Tho Chicago Boosters' Publicity
Club recognizes three great periods in
the history of Chicago. Tho Chicago
Arc, the woild's fair and tho present
rovivnl," ho continued.
"Tho boosting spirit rebuilt tho city
after tho Chicago lire, it built tho
world's fair, tho greatest demonstra
tion of its kind that was ever known.
It placed Chicago in tho forcfroilt of
the commercial world internationally.
"After tho fair the 'boosting Hplrit
apparently died out. Tiio present re
vival was brought about by tho action
of Mayor Thompson in securing with
out cost to tho city bill board space
nnd other advertising measures that
made posslblo an organization of the
Chicago Boosters' Publicity Club, an
organization that has no direct con
nection with tho Boosters' Club.
"It is planned to rnlso $1,000,000, ap
proximately $250,000 to bo spent semi
annually under tho direction of an ad
visory committeo of advertising
counsellors who aro serving without
compensation nnd an advisory coun
cil of fifty of tho mostfpromlncnt
men In Chicago, tho chairman of
which committeo Is Thomas E. Wil
son, tho great packer. No commission
Is paid for soliciting funds, no salaries
to olliccrn or directors,"
AUGUST F. DRUCHMAN,
One of the Best Commissioners
coin Park Ever Had.
C. B. Ha7elwood, vlco president of
the Union Trust Company, Is one of
the most popular men connected with
that popular bank. Ho is one of tho
rising young men of Chicago and his
clean cut methods mako new friends
for him every day.
AND STILL M0IE
Four pioposed bond Issues totaling
$34,200,000 will bo placed on tho bal
lot to bo pnsscd upon by tho people
at the April 13 election as a result of
notion by tho city council. The Issues
call for improved street lighting,
building of now and rehabilitating old
bridges, building of additional play
grounds, small parks nnd beaches and
the construction of n now convention
The street lighting proposal, tho
largest of tho four, culls for an ex
penditure of $15,000,000 nt tho rat ft
of $3,000,000 n year for five years. It
had almost unanimous support In tho
council, only six votes bolng recorded
against It. All of tho pioposals wore
approved by largo majorities. Tho
purposo and amount of each of tho
Improvements nnd exten
sion of the electric street
lighting system $15,000,000
Creation of additional small
parks and recreation
Completion of tho 1911

Although nil tho -proposals were

WHY "VOTES FOR WOMEN IN 1920"?
Cmigre"', not long ago, was quite
seriously dlicusliiR the apparent need
of the tuition for a regent during the
period of Mr. Wilson's disablement.
Congress l-n't -mnklng -oncrsntlon
on this subject nowadays. Anything
farther Is likely to tnke the form of
apologies to the first lady of the land.
Anyway, revised reports from
Washington concerning John Barton
Payne's new honors have It that the
former bend of the shipping board
wns Invited one pleasant afternoon to
call nt tho White House. Mrs. Wil
son received him, poured Ids ten,
nked him how many lumpM and In
cldentnlly remarked tITnt the presi
dent wished to appoint him secre
tary of the Interior. Judge Pnyno
succeeded in stirring tho fragrant
orange pekoe without spilling a drop,
nnd In ucceptlng the position before
the sugnr melted.
A few dns Inter, say (lie revised
reports, Admiral Benson leeelved a wlmllnr Invitation. With his cup of ten
ln received from Mrs. Wilson the president's offer of the chnlrmnnslilp of the
shipping board. He skillfully sipped nnd patrlo'tlcally accepted.
The French, ,hoo imtlonnl motto N "eherchcz la feinine" hnve been a In

Paris that he hud been unable to see President Wilson, but had nchlcvcd a
most enjoyable chat over the teacups with Mrs. Wilson on tho subject of thu
American reservations to the treaty. .

"Barney Borucli whoever he

JOHN SHELL, 131, "AIN'T DEAD YIT"
"Uncle" Johnny Shell, who Is go
ing on his l.'IL'd year, Hoes not pur
poso to bo bossed by any "upstart"
father-in-law, by heck. A few days
ago, tho second wlfo of .tho world'!
oldest mnn, n young woman In her
thirties, died nt their mountain home
on llell-Fur-Snrtln creek, In Leslie
"Uncle" John's slx-yenr-old son,
his constant companion since tho lit
tle fellow was old enough to walk,
was nil that was left to him. He
would be n comfort during tho short
period left for him, the old mountain
eer told his neighbors.
George ('happen, a man In his
sixties, Is "Uncle" John's father-In-law.
He took charge of his grandson
and started homo with him. "Uncle"
John was too old, father-in-law held,
to tako care of tho boy. Ho should
be sent to school.
His protests going unheeded,
"Uncle" John appeared with his "flintlock," of his Indian fight dny. Ho
shouted to Chappell to stop.
"I uln't dead ylt, by n long shot," declared tho old man.
SCHR0EDER WILL TRY TO FLY HIGHER
Just about the first thing MnJ. It.
W. Schroedrr of Chicago, said when
ho came to In the hospital nt Dayton,
was that he .uis going higher next
time. Tho major had Just flown to
H0.020 feet (a new record), and had
fallen more than flvo miles while un
conscious for two minutes, lauding
with eyes frozen shut and In u stnto
of collapse. The Immediate cause of
the flyer's troubles was the exhaus
tion of Ills oxygen tanks. His Instru
ments show that he exceeded ltolnfl
liohlf's world record by 5,070 feet,
and that he encountered a tempera
ture of 07 degiees below zero.
It thus appears that Major
Schroeder was actually bumping
around In what tho scientists Jocu
Inrly cnll the "roof of the world.''
They assert that there Is a mysteri
ous, intangible roof to the world,
whero the thermometer stops falling
nnd even begins to rise.
Major .Schroeder was dressed heavier than any polor explorer who ever
set forth, lie literally was wrapped in flexlblo electric heaters.
