DAILY COMMENT ON
We see no objection to Jack John son becoming a citizen of France. Let him go to it. Gee whiz, the Tribune must want to be a whole newspaper trust all by itself. President Wilson takes the right stand. Let the Mexican people fight out their own differences of opinion. As for American investors in Mex ico, they' took a gambler's chance. Now let them take their medicine. No sense in sending American sol dier boys down there to get killed for no nobler purpose than to save Amer ican dollars. Why" not put Bartzen and McCor mick in a 10-foot ring and have them fight it out there? They take up too much newspaper space with their rag-chewing. Cuess there'll be plenty war in Mexico all right, but under Wilson's plan the Mex themselves will do the killing and the getting killed. Those big telephone ads are still running in .the newspapers that are keeping quiet while the 'phone trust grabs off the automatic and estab lishes a 'phone monopoly in Chicago. Why not have the city own the 'phone system and have a 'phone in every home? There was a water carnival all right, but nobody noticed it much. Saturday night will be the last tan go night in downtown cafes. After that you can join a club.' j Provided you have the price. Mnu TnloHo hue HnHnrprl for mihlin ownership of air public utilities and no more franchises. The world do move. Peace in the Balkans and the pow ers are counting over their winnings. Germany has 88 publicly owned street railway systems. It beats the Americans by about 87. That London congress of surgeons adjourned without saying one thing about how to graft one bill onto another. PEOPLE AND THINGS There's compensation for New York in her extraordinary muddle. Neifher side will let the other steal much. . Can't be possible that they've lost Cipriano Castro, can it? There's a revolution all right and they've bag ged a whole covey of rebel generals, but hide or hair of Cip there is not. Wisconsin's State Board of Con trol will sterilize hundreds of female degenerates this year. You can bet they'd try uplift of morality on wo men first. London scientists have discovered a gas on the sun which, if it is found on the earth, will enable us to fly to most any planet. Really doesn't in terest us. We prefer to walk. An educated Southern California Indian is writing an opera. Alas! we mixed education in with our rum and other civilizing influences in uplift ing the redskin! Talk about progress! The czar has created a minister of sports, and those Russians think a sacrifice bunt is something to eat, so little do they know about baseball. Well, if Thaw can stand the change from a nicely run New York asylum to a Canadian jail, UncletSam can. If the reader has ever been in a Canadian jail, he will agree that it is a most gruesome place. Mayor Gaynor calmly paid no at tention to the finding of a barrel of dynamite underneath his office win dow. He has been blown up by New York papers so much that mere ex plosives don't rattle him. "Constant Reader" asks: "What is the currency bill, anyway?" It isn't in shape yet to fully digest, men tally, but we guess it is going to be another cute excuse for Uncle Sam's not fathering "the rag baby." McReynolds says he's going to make a record as attorney general. He's already made the record for poor base-stealing in that game with McNab.
