SUING HUSBAND SAYS SHE LIKED EX-GOVERNOR'S KISSES Mrs. Emma B. Freeman, society woman of Eureka, Cal., whose hus band in a sensational divorce suit charged that Richard D. Yates, for mer governor of Illinois, kissed her half a dozen times in the course of a railway journey to San Francisco. It was specifically alleged by Ed ward R. Freeman, art dealer of Eu reka, that ex-Governor- Yates kissed Mrs. Freeman whenever the train passed through a tunnel. And there are a good many tunnels on the way, he asserted. Former Governor Yates is said to have first met Mrs. Freeman at her home, on invitation of the husband, when the Illinois notable came west on a Chatauqua tour. Mrs. Freeman admitted making the trip with Yates, but said she did not come as his guest, as charged by the irate husband. CHICAGOGRAMS Everybody in the loop election night was imbibed with the spirit of hurrah. Mercy folks! The whole loop was a red light section after Thompson's election was assured.

'Twas the night of election and all through the house, not a man made a murmur, not even his spouse. Ded icated to the Sherman House, Sweitzer's headquarters. It is rumored that the loop bar tenders pushed many a schooner over the bar. Some fleet. There will be many an overenthus ed election bug who will do his talk ing in a whisper for the next few days. Both sides claim that the knife was used freely. When it comes to excitement Chi cago had the average good time car nival faded away. In Monday's Day Book we printed the picture of a couple, of society girls dressed in scanty gowns, who are going to dance for the benefit of the blind. The blind will get only the financial benefit. Boston is celebrating the landing of the Pilgrims. Don't wake them.
