arrested and thrown In jafl without
warrant or any reason save that The
Examiner wanted them arrested. And
I have stood in police stations at mid
night because one of my little boys
had been arrested by order of The
Examiner and I could not find him
to get him out of jail
"It is very strange to me that The
Examiner should change so suddenly
In its feelings toward children.
"I do not know how you women
feel about it, but I do not think that
this time, when Judge William Feni
more Cooper, is defending and pro
tecting the rights of citizenship of
Cook county, is a good time to in
vestigate charges brought against
him by The Examiner."
It was after this dropping of a
monkey wrench in the Hearst pursuit
of Burke, that Hoyne wrote Smith
asking the removal of Judge Cooper

For half an hour after- the meet
ing had adjourned, the women wran
gled in the parlor in small, but gen
erally quite violent, coteries. The
hotel porters breezed hopelessly in
and out, rattling chairs and making
despairing motions toward clearing
At last, some genius in the hotel
management struck upon a brilliant
Scheme. The lights were turned out,
and the "mass meeting of mothers" 3
dissolved noisily, into the night.
