Well folks, - Ella Flagg, Yqung bumped the politicians again last night. Education in Chicago means a scrap with one darned politician after another. And doubtless a book trust some where in the background. What scared Big Biz? 'Fraid ft will have to pay living wages to working women? Doesn't seem to be afraid of legis latures, but is mighty scared of wo men and organization. What will happen now? Will the State street department stores put the screws to the news papers? Keep your eye on the 'phone trust. It is opening its big mouth to swal low the automatic and then raise 'phone rates. . Whatever price is paid for the au tomatic will come out of the pockets of the 'phone users of Chicago. You can gamble on that as a sure thing. .The . disturbance on Randolph street, was caused by the cops and plain-clothes rowdies not by the waitresses and their American flags. Crowds gathered only when ar rests were made. Give the Journal first place among the evening papers for coming near est to giving the waitresses a square deal. Yesterday's issue was far ahead of all of the trust papers for its ap proach to fairness. The others began tq get cold feet as soon as the big advertisers butted in. Of course the department stores and mail order houses are interested. They fear if the" waitresses get a living wage through, organization, starvation wages will have to cease at their joints. Gee whiz, there must be something in having an artistic temperament. What do you think o'f art dealers PEOPLE AND'THINGS who catijgetbywith a million of 'debts and about a hundred thousand as sets? How do they do it? Hearst is making a bold fight for special privileges for the shipping trust. But by and by the folks will get onto that sly little servant of privi lege. Did you catch onto how quick Hearst's Examiner rose to the situa tion and started a "special Cafe,, Restaurant and Cafeteria" column? Yes, Henrici's has. an ad in that colyum. Anyhow Jane Addams wasn't a bit scared when Big. Biz tried to use the big stick qn her. She refused to issue orders to El len Gates Starr to abandon the work ing girls. ;. ; WISE POP "rM Tommy Pop, what does it mean to say of a man that he builded bet ter than he knew? Tommy's Pop It merely means, my son, that he isn't a government contractor.
