have the right to do as they please,
although their contract reads strictly
Then and there they have the idea
to attempt the corruptible trick by
offering money -tQ these business
agents and see whether they are cor
ruptible. When found easy to ap
proach they immediately cry graft
and expect everybody to believe
them subjects of extortion.
If the Chicago press expects the
laboring men to believe them friends
of organized labor they could show
it much better by employing union
labor throughout their establishments
first and then tell us what we have
to do.
The attempt to rid organized labor
of leaders abnoxious to the employ
ers will not help either party, but
strengthen the workers into a more
compact body to combatall attempts
to keep wages at the starvation
point and hours long. They all see
the handwriting on the wall. M. W.,

Editor Day Book: I have heard
and read a great deal as to why the
United States senate should be abol
ished, but I have yet to hear or read
a single argument as to why it should
not be abolished. Of course, politi
cians and corporations defend the
senate idea, but not with honest ar
gument. Is there among your thousands of
readers a single person who is willing
to tell the readers of The Day Book
what benefits the great mass of the
people derive from a senate, either
state or national. Wilbur V. Brown,
2431 W. 12th st.
Editor Day Book: After' several
months of free speech gatherings at
Chicago av. and Clark St., when views
of the administration were criticized
and labor movements and church
were debated from an honest stand
point, somebody has closed the doors
for the right to speak his mind on
the streets. The police have trouble
every night and I believe it would be
educational and helpful for many
people if someone would investigate
the stubbornness of the police to
listen to reason or the direct cause
of this seeming injustice.
I for one would very much like to
know, and am sure many of the
thousands that congregate on this
corner every night would likewise
like to know. M. Bloom.
Editor Day Book: If the health of
the community and that of visitors in
this city is to be cared for, it would
be well for the city health department
to look into the purity of the water
used in the several hotels and office
buildings about town. These build
ings being higher than the pressure
of the city water will of its own ac
cord run are supplied from tanks
which, to my knowledge, are not in
spected as to cleanliness.
I am now resident at a South Side
hotel. Here I noted a great deal of
dark precipitate in the drinking
'water. Having a Zeiss microscope
with me I examined the sediment and
found it to be a heavy algal growth.
This is the second place I have found
such water in Chicago. Though in
itself "hot harmful to the drinker,
water containing this can well harbor
other plants or other growth that is
detrimental. The health department
should look into this matter. F. A.
