headquarters iu Chicago are threatening
to remove their plants and offices to

The officers of the discontented con

moval that the state legislature and
Illniois courts are openly hostile to ag

held bv the officers of the largest of the
local industrial concerns, witli the re
sult that it has been practically de

first of the year.

are affected by the removal. Local
