read the first seven verses, 2d Kings,
4th chapter: "Elisha multiplied the
widow's oil," and the Crystal Lake
clergyman might take it as a text for
his next sermon. Harriette N.
Halm is peeved because Mr. Cochran
Vas fair-minded enough to commend
Mr. Hoyne's good work as state's
attorney. 'If Mr. Cochran refrained
from speaking a good word in behalf
of so brave and conscientious a pub
lic servant as Mr. Hoyne, discerning
Teaders of The Day Book would not
consider him as impartial as he says
he tries to be.
It would seem that Mr. Halm's' in
dictment of Mr. Hoyne is that the
latter has done some splendid work,
but js not entitled to any credit be
cause, forsooth, he is not a Socialist.
If Mr. Hoyne were a Socialist Mr.
Halm would sing paens and officiate
at Mr. Hoyne's apotheosis, but as he
happens to be a Democrat, why. Mr.
Halm will have none of him.
Mr. Hoyne can never be a good So
cialist, Mr. Halm, as he is not in the
least bit class-conscious, and all So
cialists must be that Mr. Hoyne can
never subscribe to that doctrine, as
he knows no" class distinctions in the
performance of his duty powerful

wreckers, crooked labor leaders, cor

If Mr. Halm wants his assertions
to carry any weight he will have to
specify wherein Mr. Hoyne has been
in any way derelict in the perform

specifications on the part of Mr.
Halm, sober-minded citizens will ad
mit that Mr. Hoyne has given an ex

on immoral shows by "H. W." ex
presses the right sentiments. I hap
pened to see the show referred to at
the Haymarket theater and I know
a board of censors would never per
mit such scenes to appear in the
movies. For instance, two come
dians (?) are looking for a diamond
garter. They place a large mirror
on the floor and connive to get a
woman to stand on the mirror. Then
they get on their hands and knees
and gaze into the mirror, at the same
time passing vulgar remarks. I can
not understand why such things are
permitted by the management of the
theater or by law. The influence
upon the boys in the audience helps
to make them vicious.
.The lid should be placed on bur
lesque shows more than the movies,
for there one can hear filthy tales
and see base immorality. What an
eyesore to Chicago is State street
Lsouth of Van Buren! The burlesque
houses in that locahty, with their
Oriental dancers, are a stench. I see
no reason why show producers can
not put on clean musical shows with
clean comedy in place of the smut
and the tiresome Jew comedian who
gets by with nothing but nerve and
stale, smutty jokes. Incensed.
who claims to be Christ is a fake.
Now, I always behaved myself and
went through some troubles, believe
.me. i started as wagon soy and
years, have gone by and now I'm a
carpenter by trade. I'm not bad
looking, don't smoke or chew and
don't stay out late at night, so I think
my record should be looked into. I
have only shot two games of pool in
my life. Fell in love with an angel
face, and she thought ,my face was
too much in competition with hers
and a big fellow got her poor gink!
