"There is a higher Judge than you."
I would like to ask Judge Fry to go
over to Madison and Fifth av. any
afternoon about 1:30 and see the riot
when the 5 o'clock papers come out,
or, better still, tryto look for a posi
tion even at $10 perVeek, and see if
he could get one. Try this just for
one week and then let us know what
he thinks of a man being out of work
two or three months.
I know some of our best mechanics
in the city who have been. If he
claims a man don t want to work or
is not looking for a job, why don't he
offer him work at a fair wage? I
say a man cannot get work now,
even if he wanted to buy a job.
Justice means to be fair and just
to all parties concerned, show no
partiality, but try to help and better
all. If that pitiful case of Mr. and
Mrs. Goodman is true, then it is high
time to clean out ths court that
causes misery, suffering and untold
unhappiness. Reading about this
case makes me think we're living
about' 500 years back and not in
1914! That used to be the way they
gave the masses what we call today
By what right has a judge to be
lieve any story of these so-called re
ligious or charitable societies any
more than these poor people who did
not have the means to hire a law
yer Can he or this aid society ever
take away the suffering and the
hatred these people have for the flag
and liberty and our country or re
spect our laws? I say "No!"
I alsd noticed in the papers an
order by Judge Olson that he will
have arrested all in court who are
not interested in any of the cases on
trial and send them to the Bridewell
for vagrancy. Why? Don't he want
the public to see how judges who are
working for us and paid by us are
handing out justice?
I always thought that anyone could
visit them so"long as one was orderly.
pne and being paid for it by- him,
would you dare tell him he should'
stay out and not to come into see
you work? Well, I think both cases
are alike.
Men and women, for humanity's
sake wake up and see or speak to
some of these people who have been
sent to some sectarian schools,
houses and other sweat shops by
some of our judges and hear their
tale of woe, especially the home over
on the north side which is miscalled
the Home of Good Shepherd.
It is a public place, and if you de
mand to be admitted they will have
to let you in, as it is a public institu
tion and Cook county pays them
thousands of dollars each year for
keeping these girls. Look at these
girls and see the sadness in their
faces and who dare not talk nor com
plain because a nun being with" you
to see that the girls tell nothing.
They do not want the public to
know or see how tfiey have to work
and God knows what all is done to
these poor girls. We, have commis
sions investigating, our 'public pris
ons. Then Why not the. House of
Good Shepherd? S. F. Fischer, 329
