As moulders of public opinion the News, Herald, American and Exam iner are evidently ge 'ng very mouldy. - .. The naughy voters refused to obey orders of the newspaper bosses. And this is pretty near Hearst's finish in Chicago. Sam Insull won't own the new ad ministration, anyhow. The Trib missed the opportunity of a lifetime. But it lacked both the noodle and the sand. The Post is the only loop daily that guessed right Bill Thompson goes in under no obligation to the gas, electric and traction company, the telephone trust, the State street stores, the big banks, the money trust. His obligation now is wholly to the people of Chicago. Carter Harrison can hardly be blamed if he throws a silent snicker up his sleeve. And the big taxdodgers now won't be able to put a crimp in Hoyne's ac tivities. And nobody can prevent Roger from going ahead with his biscuit making. We would like to have an analysis by Lawson and Keeley of just how many votes the News and Herald By supporting Sweitzer, Hearst helped Thompson amazingly. But gee whiz, how all the rest of Chicago did swat the loop. The phone trust will have a fat chance putting that phone job over in the new council Several more live wires, including Kennedy and Rodriguez, will be there to help Merriam stand off the public service gang. By the way, our old pal Julius Ro senwald was out strong for Sweitzer. Julius is some philanthropist. Jim Patten lost out as a gas mag nate, but won as a Republican. Kicking Lorimer when he was ; 1 down didn't appeal to the Chicago sense of fair play. Now we'll see. if the newspaper bosses can put over their pet judges. Commonwealth Edison, Peoples Gas, Chicago Traction and Chicago Telephone are all due now to go off a few points i nthe stock market. What did it? Oh, only the people. o o BITS OF NEWS Seven fires in Oak Park have aroused police. Fear incendiary.
