DAILY COMMENT ON Anyhow, the H.-H. set have suffi ciently recovered from that election day shock to dance the hesitation'and tango. But maybe RogecSulllvan has been taking dancing lessons, too. Fortunately dancing is non-partisan and non-fac(ional. And it's a lafmore fun than poli tics. While Uncle Sam was looking for some way to punish Huerta, some body should have thought of making him sign the pledge. They do say he is the champion souse of Mexico. Roger Sullivan says the times have caught up with the ideas of Gov. Alt geld. That's what he told the Deutsches Festessen. Now let's hear Roger advocate the things that Altgeld advocated. As a candidate for senator from Illinois Roger can help clear up the situation by telling all of us.just what he stands for. It looks as if that non-partisan ticket move is a cute little scheme to get Republicans and Progressives voting together again. it would enable both of these par ties to conceal their political iden tity. And the trust newspapers will, of course, pick the non-partisan ticket for them. If we are to have non-partisanship in local elections it would be best to make it non-partisan. Certainly there can be no objection to women riding nian-fashion in the suffrage parade. Haven't the women of Illinois equal rights with men? And, anyhow, isn't that the safest way for anybody to ride? Business sure is being systematized nowadays. Just think of that distillery that wanted to sell a list of its customers to the Keeley cure. PEOPLE AND THINGS That suggests the idea that each distillery establish a booze-cure of its own. Then it can catch its customers both coming and poing. It can start with Philip drunk and wind up with v Philin snhfir. One lesson of the verdict in the H Witt case is that if vou are eoinir to $ I be a gunman, it is safer to be a news paper gunman. Then if you come to trial the pa pers can print only such of the evi dence as they think the public ought to read. , And it's pretty soft for the lawyers who conduct the defense. There was a studied purpose in the newspapers during the trial of the newspaper gunmen to give the im pression that Witt was really the of- ' fender and that the gunmen were In danger from a mob. But they got away with it; and that, ends that story. But isn't it funny how witnesses disappear in Chicago? o o PROBING EXPRESS CO. FIRE An investigation into the fire that destroyed the United States Express Company bam at 448 N. Desplaines street and caused the death of 160 horses was begun today by Batallion Chief Michael Kerwin. Kerwin expressed deep suspicion as to the origin of the flames and had investigators at work as soon as the The United States Express Com- ) pany is going out oi Dusiness. o o A HOLLOW VICTORY The smell of the powder was strong in his scent. Cried he , "It is war!" Then to battle he went. v The conquest was over! The maid en was his! The powder he smelled was the pink on her phiz. Magazine of Fun.
