DAILY COMMENT 6N
Hurrah for the Baptists! The, Baptist ministers were the first to line, up- tor the working girls and against brutality of the police. They have taken notice of the brutal manhandling of the striking waitresses and. declared their belief in the right to organize. - The churches whose preachers take a keen interest in the bread-and-butter struggle of the workers ard the ones that, will command, the respect of all real Christians. If Pres. McCormick and Commis sioner Bartzen each called, the other, a har, who's the roughneck? The Trib has tried' all along to give the impression that it's pet, McCor mick, was a perfect gentleman and those who opposed him rere rdugh- And yet Gentleman McCormick was talking- about fighting until re minded there were ladies present. .Now that Jeremiah O'Conner (las quit the police force, will September Morn go into mourning?' And does Jeremiah leave Punk houser alone in his censorious glory? They say the new French gowns are open down the back clear to the waist iine. They've been nearly that low in front for some time at least in swell sassiety." By and by, the swell thing will be a skirt and a pair of suspenders. And then all they've got to do is to tighten the b'elt anil -'they won't need the suspenders. But there's another thing we mustn't overlook. There has been a tendency lately, ia our swellest circles also to shorten the skirt, and slit it someto boot. So. if Fashion commences to slash and slit at both ends' they'll finally meet at, the waist and, then the belt will be the whole thing. And then this question will arise why the, belt? f Anynow, mere is a greai saving in j PEOPLE AND THINGS the material, and there is no great strain on the onlooker's imagination. Surely modern woman, is gradu ally emerging from oblivion, conven tion, tradition and clothes.. Good-morrow, September Morn. . Wonder if. anybody has thought to tell Mexico that Corporal Hearst is licking the. daylights out of her in every edition. And it now turns out that Hearst had no facts on which to base his at tempt to kick up a fuss over Ambas sadpr Page's speech. It appears that Page didn't even, scratch the Monroe doctrine. It isn't safe to b'elieve all you read in Willie's newspapers. He doesn't let facts spoil a good storyT Henry M. Hyde writes good pieces for the Tribune, but when he-says Chicago has many "philanthropists who are crucified" he goes a long . way. Can't you overhaul that and say it over so it sounds better, Henry? We have never seen a crucified philanthropist. Tell us where to go and get a good, long look at-a philanthropist nailed to a cross. All the big philanthropists we knew about are sitting in easy chairs, draw ing dividends regularly, eating good dinners, sleeping between clean sheets. Most of 'em, when they want any thing, just touch a button and tell Jeems the butler to go quick and get it. There ain't no crucifixion about it. . o o Galesbunrg, . 111.
