DAILY COMMENT QN
Good luck to, you, Woodrow and better judgment! The advance stories in the morning papers telling how beau tiful and effective the suffrage parade was yesterday were real nicely written stories. It was downright mean of the rude populace of Washington to go and bust up the .parade and spoil those stories. Taft's says yesterday was. his happiest day. Perhaps his hap piness was caused-by the happi ness of the people over the occa sion. "Chicago should be thankful that it has no idle rich." Mal colm McDowell. Don't know if the same is any occasion for thankfulness at all, Malcolm. One of the things that has con soled us for the man who hogs off a "hundred millions "or so, is the usual character of his descend ants. They're generally such dam phools, and being damphools.they put that money in circulation again. The gink who designed that new nickel might have made it so it would go into a telephone slot, and prevent a whole lot of pro fanity. There are two things about Wilson's inaugural that we're stuck on its shortness and its human-ness: Julius Rosenwald says he's not sure whether or not he'll produce the Sears-Roebuck books-asper instructions, when he appears be- PEOPLE AND THINGS fore the senate white slave com mittee. It is to .be hoped that Barratt O'Hara and his colleagues are big enough to make up Julius' mind for him on this little point. We should hate to see Rosen wald show that he is bigger than the sovereign state of Illinois. Aid. Nance, chairman of the city health committee, wants the free lunch fork done away says too many people use it. a day. Possibly Nance would like saloonkeepers to install a private fork for every patron like some barbers do with shaving mugs. Or maybe Nance doesn't eat free lunch. Not mentioning any names, we've been looking over the Record-Herald and. the Inter-Ocean and we wishtsome folks would quit drawing things and calling them cartoons. The way the medical profes sion of the U. S: is treating Doc Friedmann reflects a great deal of credit on the New York white wings. Friedmann may be an impos ter, but he has a right to a. fair show and a square deal anyhow. Likewise a chance to prove what he claims. And after the Sophia Singer murder trial is over, Chicago will have the strange experience of seeing two of the Barretts actual ly go, to trial. The more we think of Arthur Burfage Farwell of theLaw and Order league as a reformer, the less we 'think of him as a man.
