runs up into the hundreds of thou
sands. And I know that not a dollar
of it was taken with the (jpnsent of
the teachers in the public schools or
of their organization. They have
done everything pos'sible to save the
land belonging to the schools. Every
dollar that got away was lost through
the school-board.
There is stfll some land left that be
longs to the public schools. Those
who want it will never rest until they
exhaust every effort to grab it And
if they can break up the organization
of school teachers it will be easier for
them to grab the land.
Keep your eye on that school land.
It was intended to benefit the public
schools, not land speculators.

elimination of the public school
Teachers' Federation, which is
owned, backed and run by the Cath
olic church in the efforts to "Make
America Catholic," let me ask them
all a few questions, viz:
The Catholic church now controls
75 per cent of all public offices in
every large city in American, also 75
per cent of the jobs given out by
every state and the national govern
ment. The church has built institu
tions everywhere and then had laws
passed whereby the people could be
arrested, convicted and turned over
to one of the slave pens of the church
in order to collect public money for
their keep. In fact, it would take all
the pages of The Day Book to tell
how the American people, at least
88,000,000 of them, have been robbed,
plundered and victimized by the Cath
olic church in its efforts to "Make
America Catholic," and right here in
I Chicago 200,000 patriots have banded .
together for the sole purpose of pre
vening the Catholic church from
anging the cross and the flag of the 1
1 pope in front of every public school
in Chicago. And it is well known
that every labor organization in
America is dominated by the Catho
lic church and that they are not free
men, at liberty to do things for their
own good. All they can do is some
thing for the ultimate benefit of the
Catholic church first and themselves
next Therefore, let me suggest that Q
The Day Book, the Catholic church
and the various labor organizations
keep their hands off the public
schools and give an opportunity to
see what some one else other than
the Catholic church can do. The
church has had its inning and failed
miserably, and if the new regime fails
it will be time for labor to have a
spasm. If given a fair show I predict
that after the Catholic grafting is cut
out of the public schools there will be
money enough to pay everything and
give the teachers a good raise in pay,
and, after all, it is pay they want Let
the church graft its money from the
poor workers out in the stockyards

Dear Mr. Cochran If The Day
Book still feels that there is more
money to be obtained by favoring the
Catholic church at every opportunity
and you think you would lose patron
age by publishing the attached letter,
then please return to me and I will
use it elsewhere. W. H. Miller.

Would not a discussion along this
line in some of the Chicago papers
be an excellent method for acquaint- (T)
