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?

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.

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.
