Sunday Closing of the World's Pair,
The Sunday closing of the World's
Fair has assumed new and peculiar
phase lately which will have the effect
no doubt of dazzling the first advocates
of such a ridiculous proceeding. This
new phase is found in the cordial sup
port which is given to the closing move
ment by the saloon element and its fol
lowers in the heart of the city. Their
object of course is plain and their mo
tive purely a selfish business one. They
have an idea that Sunday closing of the
great exhibit will keep the large crov
of strangers in the city itself, where/re
sorts will be doing business OH the jwide-.
open plan, and for that reason tifey are
for once taking sides with the n/oraj re
formers and orthodox champibns who
believe that Sunday should be| a day of
rest. The companionship is arjjt to seem
queer and so much so, one would think,
that the latter and better class would
seek to espouse the other side.
Their only reason, in the first place,
for closing is that Sunday should be a
day of rest. In this they are entitled to
their opinion, but between the two evi's.
that of keeping it open and that of clos
ing it and holding the crowd to amuse
ments in the city, we prefer to believe
that the former is tilled witli the least
danger for the public mind. Those who
want to observe Sunday as a day of rest
and religious service can do so if they
wish,butit is for that immense throng who
go to the city and go simply for amuse
ment, that the Sunday regulations should
be adopted. No harm can come to them
from visiting the Fair, but if left loo^e
in the city with nothing to do, tempta
tions will not be wanting to entice them
into what may work them great injury.
This fact alone, setting aside the com
mon sense plea in behalf of the working
man, should be enough', we think, to en
list on the side of opposition to Sunday
closing the best friends of morality and
the public welfare.
In some respects, Chicago is not pro
gressive. .Her rapid growth, almost like
that of a mush room her ambitious
strides towards commercial pre-eminence
and her combative'energy all are the
source of national pride, but in politics
and in morals, she is corrupt far'beyond
excuse or considerate indulgence. In
fact the tendency of the Windy City
seems to be from bad to worse.
Today on the eve of an event which
will attract to this remarkable western
city the attention of the entire world, its
people are preparing to elect to the of
fice of mayor a man who represents all
that is-low and evil in agreat city. Hand
in hand with his election goes a wide
open policy, the fruits of which will be
the triumph of the slums and the glory
of thieves and black-legs. What worse
fate could fall to such a city at just such
a time as at the present?
Once before when Carter Harrison
was mayor of Chicago, he made himself
disreputable in the eyes of all its best
and most respected citizens. He sought
not their praises but -preferred rather to
wink at crime and let it have its way.
As a result wicked men, fust women,
corrupt politicians and purchased offici
als carried on th-ir evil work at all times
of the day and night and in all parts of
the city so that to-day Chicago holds a re
putation for looseness and the corrupt
ways of the world that is possessed by
no other city in the land.
By liberal use of money and by skill
ful wire-pulling this friend of the dives
is again accorded the Democratic nomi
nation and in order to be elected he will
spend an average fortune and will cer
tainly resort to methods of electioneer
ing contemptible in the eyes of all de
cent men. That he will gain his point
there need be no doubt, and from an ad
ministration that is doing its best to right
wrong and restore respectability, Chica
go must take a step backward and make
place for crooks and beastly revelry.
Gambling will thrive thieves will do a
prosperous business lewdness will stare
at the visitors to the city on all sides
courtesans will sit in high places, and
instead of being the Queenlike city of
the west, Chicago will be a hell-hole of
crime and debauchery far beyond the
control of police. Even if a force should
be instated that would airn to give the
city a tone and coloring of -decency, it
would be powerless. Tough people from
all parts of the country are heading
towards Chicago with the hope of profit
ing from the World's Fair and all of
these expect a friend and protector in
Carter Harrison. Consequently they
will work and vote for his election.
To ward aC5 his disgrace Chicago is
helpless. The laboring people are mis
guided into believing that Carter Harri
son is their friend, pimply because he
hem and tells them how much Carter
loves them, and the peo.ple "who realize
the danger of electing such a man are
largely outnumbered by the laborers and
the slums. For this reason he will go
into office with a big majority.
goes to their gatherings, drinks beer with for the least money of any man on earth.
The sinners of the sinning city will be
happy and people who go there to see
the wonders of the World's Fair will al
so be permitted to see the dark side of
life with all its vice and disgraceful
shadows. The Sodom and Gomorrah of
old will be pictured on a larger scale,
and the mayor will only wink at the
crime and shame that is going on around
him. For citizejn.s^©£jChicago, who love

The School Sunerintendency.
A movement is on foot which ma} be
brought to the attention of the legisla
ture, which has for its object a law/pro
viding for the election «T the yCounty
superintendent of schools bythepountry
towns, exclusive of the independent
school districts. That there i:
deal of excuse for such a move
reasons plain enough.
The independent districts to-day\have
little in common with those of the col
try. They are above and beyond
jurisdiction of the county superintendent
an a report of their condition is the on
ly matter over which he is supposed, to
concern himself. And even in this he is
but a medium for carrying the report to
the state department of instruction that
as far as tbe superintendent being a nec
essity in the independent districts is con
cerned, no one will be found, we may
safely say, who will even claim that
there is useless work enough in them to
Do Away With The Brigade.
There is a bill before the present legis
lature which provides for the cutting off
of one of the militia regiments, thus re
ducing the number to two and at the
same time doing away with the brigade
organization". This bill ought to pass.
The brigade organization as it exists at
present is merely a luxury paid for by
the state for the benefit of Col. Bend.
It serves no particular purpose in
strengthening the militia forces of the
State, but on the contrary weakness them
by requiring a force that the state appro
priation fails to provide for. Two regi
ments of thirteen companies each would
be amply sufficient for all practical pur
poses and better equipment and a bet
ter standing could be attained by giving
the meager state appropriation to those
two instead of dividing it between there
with a brigade staff talked on as a useless
expense. Col, Bend may not like and
the Third Regiment may not like it, but
what the people of the state want, if they
are to have militia companies at all, is
efficient service for the least possible ex
penditure. Style and military show
should be dispensed with and thorough
discipline in every regiment should take
its place. With the money at hand, this
can only be done by making the force as
compact as possible and without any red
tape what soever.
The Local Newspaper.
Gov. Francis, speaking of the lotal
paper says: "'Each year the local paper
gives from 500 to 5,000 in free lines to
the community in which it is located.
No other agency can or will do this.
The editor in proportion to his means,
does more for his town than any ten men

him or admire his wilting, but because
the local paper is the best investment a
community can make. It may not be
brilliantly edited or crowded with
thoughts, but financially it is of more
benefit to a community than a teacher

ancially, and yet on the moral questions
you will find the most of the local pa

what he is in fact, a purely country dis

easily dispense with him and the office
