being dictated by one of the heredit
ary overlords of that paper, who was
boosted into the city council while he
was a law student, and foisted upon
the taxpayers-of.the sanitary district
as president of the Sanitary Board by
the Chicago Tribune at a subsequent
expense of millions of dollars of the
taxpayers' money resulting from his
lack of judgment, discretion, ineffi
ciency and general mismanagement.
I refer to "R. R.," the wonder child
again. The useless and empty ditch
at Evanston is the monument of his
useless and expensive administration.
The wonder child, however, is only
dictator for the hour. The real boss
of the Tribune has been sent for and
is hastening back from Europe to the
relief of the wonderful one. I refer
to James Keeley, the heroic figure in
the recent lauditory article in Col
lier's Weekly of June 28th, entitled,
"Explaining Keeley." The good
citizens of this community, and par
ticularly of Englewood who have
been misled into believing that the
Chicago Tribune is anything but law
less and hypocritical, should read
this article. It not only explains Mr.
Keeley, but it explains the Chicago
Tribune. The author of this article
states that he does not defend Mr.
Keeley, but only explains him. This
article shows that if a man is lawless
enough and indifferent enough to the
rights of society, and of owners of
private property, his promotion if he
happens to work for the Chicago
Tribune is rapid.
The author of this interesting
sketch describes the career of Keeley
from the Whitechapel District in
London to the present time in' part.
It points out how Keeley, while
working for the Tribune in a subor
dinate capacity, and while govern
ment troops were attempting to sup
press an uprising of cattle rustlers,
thwarted the efforts of the govern
ment, defied the law and ignored pri-"
vate rights by destroying telegraph
wires' and in other ways deporting
himself in a manner which showed
his lack of respect for the laws of
the land which had given him a shel
ter. The key into the policies of the
Chicago Tribune is lawlessness.
For months past the Chicago
Tribune upon the "owner's page,"
known to real newspapers as the edi
torial page, has derisively termed me
the "Fearless State's Attorney." The
Chicago Tribune will find in the pur
suit of its lawlessness that the term
"fearless" is no joke. Cook County
for years has needed a state's attor
ney who does not fear the lawless,
lying, hypocritical Tribune.
Chicago Tribune reporters and
other agents have been barred from
the stall's attorney's office Since its
managers conspired to obstruct the
prosecution of Annenberg.
