The impossible has happened. The
east has met the west For the first
time in so far back that it is even
beyond the remembrance of Bobby
Burke, Roger Sullivan-and Mayor
Harrison have shaken hands.
It all happened last night in Fitz
gibbons' Hall, into -which the resi
dents of the 12th rard had come to
hear the mayor, Roger and Judge
Scully explain the Democratic cam
paign. On the platform Harrison was
boosting Scully. . It was rather un
looked for, as Carter H. had sup
ported Johnny Owens in the primar
ies. But his speech showed no trace
of disappointment over Scully's nom
ination. In the middle of his speech Roger
Sullivan appeared in the hall. He was
to follow Harrison. He stood in the
wings until the mayor's speech was
Harrison darted from the platform."
He almost bumped into Sullivan.
Roger smiled very broadly. "Some
speech," he commented. "Thanks,"
replied the mayor. Almost simultan
eously each stuck out his hand. There
was a little gasp of surprise among
the bystanders. The east had met
the west
In his speeches, however, the
mayor is very careful not to mention
Sullivans' name. He confines him
self strictly to the county ticket.

For the third time George Knah,
owner of a chain of restaurants, was
,in court yesterday asking an injunc
"Tton restraining union waitresses
from picketing his restaurants, from
which they are on strike for an $8
wage and six-day working week.
DucJey Taylor, lawyer for the Res
taurant Keepers' Ass'n, presented the
usual string of affidavits from patrons
of Knab's restaurants who complain
ed that they wished to be able to eat
in a restaurant fighting union labor
without being remindedthat the girls
are on strike for a living wage.
Judge Baldwin said he had heard
that some settlement of the strike
was contemplated between the asso
ciation and the Waitresses' Union,
but Taylor declared this would not
affect his client, as Knab would con
tinue to fight union waitresses re-
gardless of any agreement the Res
taurant Keepers' Ass'n might make
with them.
Judge Baldwin commented upon
the criticism of himself and Judge
Humphreys by John H. Walker, pres
ident Illinois Federation of Labor,
who he declared had stated at the
Peoria convention that 'these judges
were employers' henchmen, and told
Mr. Masters he had expected him or
Elizabeth Moloney to ask for a
change (k venue.
"I am not responsible for anything
my clients say, your honor," Mr.
Masters replied. "If 1 had wanted
a change of venue from your court I
should have frankly asked for it. But
I should like to say to your honor
that I have never criticized any-judge
of any court in any labor matter and
to call your attention to the fact that
Mr. Taylor, representing Knab, de
clared before the Industrial Commis
sion that it was impossible for em
ployers to secure justice from state
judges, referring to your honor,
Judge McGoorty and Judge Windes,
because of your fear of the labor
vote.. I think that criticism coming
from' a lawyer was in very bad taste."
Decision will be rendered in this
case next Tuesday.
