MRS. EMMELIN EPANKHURST IS HEADED BACK TO JAIL Glasgow, Scotland, March 10.

Jimmie is a brave laddybuck, all right. Yesterday he went to the mayor and helped holler for help. Gee whiz! what do the big em ployers want the mayor to do? Already the cops have man-handled waitresses and broke a few arms. Won't the Employers' Union be satisfied until somebody turns a Gat ling gun on the girls? Mayor Harrison might as well show that bunch the door. They'll be among the first to swat him politically the first chance they get. Jimmie Simpson should not waste his time fussing with the Henrici strike. He might better keep busy trim ming hats over at the big store. Four years is too long a term for aldermen unless the people have the right to recall. Two years is just about tvo years too much for some aldermen.
