ONE MAN'S OPINIONS
BY N. D-COCHRAN.
W The American A. B. C. Comhina.
If President Wilson's peace policy
m luivm&u uicuiauuu uy mgcuuua,
2 Brazil and Chile is successful he will
9 have accomplished one of the great
est diplomatic feats in American his
tory; and will not only bring about
peace in Mexico, but throughout the
entire American continent.
It is the beginning of an all-American
alliance', and a long step toward
The United States will be better off
' as a partner with other American re
publics than ft has been as the big
boss under the Monroe doctrine, with
the self-imposed task of preserving
peace on this continent.
The attitude President Wilson is
-putting this country in, in its rela
tion to the republics to the south
of us, will clear away the suspicion
that our secret policy is to gradually
extend our southern boundary line
until our flag floats over Cape Horn.
And all truly patriotic Americans
will be prouder of Uncle Sam as a Big
Brother than they ever could be
proud of him as a big boss.
Wilson is right. War with Mexico
is unnecessary. Let us have peace.
A Cowardly Governor. So long as
the striking coal miners didn't fight
back when attacked by Rockefeller's
hired murderers and the equally mur
derous state militia, Gov. Ammons
was a brave governor.
The moment the miners armed
themselves and began fighting back
in defense of their families and their
homes the cowardly governor holler
ed for help and wired the president
for federal troops.
Ammons, shines as a hero only
when he is fighting helpless women
and children or unarmed men. If he
ever got into real war -himself he'd
get shot in the back.
Suppressing the IJsws, -A JPaily
News auto truck ran over a man and
killed him. A coroner's jury, com
prised of six members of the board
of safety commissioners, found the
driver culpable for exceeding the
speed limit allowed by law and the
Daily News for not having proper
lights on the truck. Evidence was
brought out before the jury to prove
that newspaper delivery trucks are
permitted to violate the speed ordi
nance on boulevards.
I found no story about the finding
of the jury in any paper, aside from
The Day Book, except the Tribune.
This indicates that there is some
truth in the charge that Chicago
newspapers suppress news if they are
Involved in it.
Why was the Tribune the only pa
per in the trust to print the news?
Did the other publishers think their
readers had no right to know about
people being killed in Chicago streets
by newspaper autos?
Another Man's Opinions. I am
ashamed to say it. But I only became
a daily "buyer of The Day Book Mon
day, April 19. It happened like this:
I was riding on an elevated train
Sunday, April 18. A very well-dressed
and refined-looking woman took the
seat beside me. She had Saturday's
Day Book and she read it all the way
from Sheridan road station to Wil
mette. With the tail end of my right
eye I also read every word. I don't
think the lady knew I was reading
with her. I read your article in which
you exposed the Arthur Burrage Far
well counterfeit Christianity and the
counterfeit philanthropy of Julius Ro
senwald, "Chicago's pet philanthro
pist." I asked the gentlemanly-looking
news agent at the Wilmette station
for TheDay Book. He did not have
it. As soon as I got into the "loop"
Monday morning I asked a. newsboy
for Saturday's Day Book. He at once
scurried across the street to two or
three news stands and came back
with, three or four well-thumbfed.
