DAILY COMMENT ON PEOPLE AND THINGS 1
Well Christmas is over.
Just 364 days until next Christmas.
So do your next year's Christmas
shopping early.
We beat the advertising papers to
it this time.
Many rron, wHI wear new neckties
today- Also thin pocketbooks.
And about tomorrow some of us
will be noisily swishing in the turkey
soup. '.'
We haven't heard yet what Pres.
Aleck McCormick gave Pete Bartzen
for Christmas.
But we wouldn't be surprised if
McCormick got a choice collection of
embroidered slippers from his regu
lar county board audience.
Anyhow Uncle "Sam got a new cur
rency bill in his sock and Wall street
got the same in the neck.
Possibly Jawn D. Rockefeller got
a new wig and a good look at him
self in the mirror.
But really the Trib' should have
Christmased Aleck McCormick and
Judge Kavanaugh by deciding which
it will pick as its private candidate
for mayor.
The suspense must be awful.
That Christmas tree in Grant park
will come down now, and the con
tributors will feel that they have
done their Christmas duty for an
other full year.
To some folks Christmas cheer
comes about like the annual dose, of
spring sulphur and molasses that
mother used to make.
It is rumored that there will be
the annual slump in Sunday school
attendance for a few months.
For Christmas comes but once a
year.
Twas the day after Christmas and
all through the house not a creature
was stirring, not even the cheese.
Speaking, of candidates for mvo
why run a suffragist candidate if
Aleck McCormick is going to run
Folks might as well begin by pick
ing their mayoralty early birds early, ,
if they want them to catch the worm.
Anyhow we hope Woodrow Wilson
had a merry Christmas. He has
worked hard for his country, and has
stood a lot of vicious knocking from
Wall street tools like Willie the
Hearst.
What Hearst was working for was
a Mexican war in Uncle Sam's
hosiery.
If they really found dynamite in
the rooms of strike leaders in Calu
met, we'd gamble a big red apple that
some of thel imported gunmen put it
there.
Unless it was done by some of the
business men.
Of course there were some who
had to wear their socks all night to
make sure there would be something
in them Christmas morning.
Had it over occurred to you that
religion is just as good on week days
as on Sunday?
And that the Christmas spirit is
just as good all the year around as
on December 25?
John C. Harding, one of the de
posed school board members, was not
so much a Harrison man as a per
sonal appointee of Andy Lawrence.
Last year Harding was very friend
ly to vAndy's side of the newspaper
lockout, and was very much opposed
to the printers going out in sympathy
with pressman and stereotypers.
At that time Harding was a great
labor leader in the eyes of the trust
newspapers.
But now they are all jumping on
Johnny's neck.
The trust papers are strong for a
labor leader until they get through
using him. Then he's a lemon peel.
When a labor leader takes a politi

The copper mine operators of
Michigan made slaves of the fathers
of the children who were murdered
on Christmas eve.
They were murdering the younj
