Chairman Roy 0. r?L Any Grass Grow Undtr His FA net He and His Associates Are Working Night and Day for the Whole Ticket. ,., John F. Smuliki Pledges Himself to Turn v Every Cent of Interest into Treasury. Otinlmmii lloy O. Wont of the Ito- publican state committee, Ih directing nu energetic campaign mid he ninl his assistants are pleaixeil with the outlook. .loliu F. Smulskl, Republican eundl ditto for state treasurer, Iiiim Issued u public statement reiterating .ttio pledge lio had made Informally before bo wax nominated, not to take for htri own uso any Interest on state money ittiould ho be elected. Mr. Smulskl, (lov. Deneen, and n few others In the state organization desired to have thin pledge lucorimrated In tlio party platform by the state conven tion, but they were opposed and obliged to abandon the Idea of having the party commit Itself to thin polley. At the time tho Itepubllean candidate .inuounecd his Intention of binding htm self personally, and IIiIh lie hai'dono In the following statement: "I have received numerous. Inquiries ns to what disposition I shall make of tho Intercut on public funds should I lw elected state treasurer. I wish, tliercfore, to announce publicly that If elected state treasurer every dollar of Interest collected by me on public fundi or funds coming to me us state treasur er will he turned over to tho state. "I made this announcement prior to tho Itepubllean state convention nnd prior to my nomination. I repeat this pledgo now, without qualifications. A strict account will lw kept of funds do posited In banks nnd the statement of theso banks will be submitted to the proper authorities for, verification. Ev ery dollar of Interest on public funds controlled by the stato treasurer will lie paid to tho people of tho state of Illi nois. "I shall accept the salary of state .treasurer as provided by law as my only compensation." At Itepubllean stato headquarters ef forts nre IsMng made to schedule Mr. tfmulskl for ns thorough a tour of tho tnto ns ho will consent to make. Sov vrnl counties hnvo Invited him and Gov. Deneen to mnko political speeches, but the booking committee at headquarters does not know yet to what extent It, can schedule either of them. The governor Is wanted In I'eorla, Itoekford and sev eral other cities. Krost Hummel always wns a winner. He is not going to break his record. Make tho Mayor's term ono year lu steud of four. Then wo would have a better city government With nu of. lice-holding aristocracy assured of life , jkihIIIoiih In the minor jobs by the civil service law, give tho people a chance tit chango Mayors every year at least. Mayor Dunne will get, an Immense vote for his fealty to the llccf Trust among tho packers. The civil service law, agitated nisi passed by Impractical cranks, Is ruin ing every branch of (air city govern ment and establishing an ollleo holding aristocracy that Is ns Impudent as It Is Incfllclcut At n recent meeting of tho city coun cil an alderman Jiad passed un order upon tho building committee to amend tho building ordinances regulating de partment stores. This means an ordinance permitting the department stores to do uwuy with lire walls. It imposes people to frightful dan gors. The lesson of tho Iroquois flro Is lost. Whenever a city ordinance comes lu competition with tho rich It must be "amended." The department stores of Chicago, with tho exception of The Fair, openly defy tho city govornmont. Tiro city ordinances provide for flro walla In every largo structure. ,Tn department stores, with the ex- West Is Not Letting ceptlon of The Fair, have refused to comply with this law. The result Is that humnn life Is en dangered and one of these days an aw ful loss of life will occur. Only u few years ago one of the State street department stores collapsed be cause of the absence of tire wall. Fortunately this catastrophe occurred, on a Kuuday, when the store was empty. Had It occurred on n week day when the store was full of people, hundreds of lives would have been lost. This store has not compiled with the law since. Tho city has been dilly-dallying with these people nnd Is giving them time. For what? To comply with tile law? Not much I The department stores have been "given time" so that they can "work" the aldermen. In other words they are trying hard to get the section of the tiro ordinance applying to them repealed. We don't read anything nlsiut this In tho dally papers. Oh, not The dally papers nre afraid of losing tho department store nds. We do not hear of any of tho so called reform Aldermen doing anything to help tho pcoplu lu this matter. Chicago lacks manhood. If there was a spark of manhood In the Itody politic these department stores would not 1 permitted to vio late tho law with Impunity. And tho Trust lress would shield them at Its peril. Shorten the terms of all olllclnls and bring them closer to tho people. Carter II. Harrison will ho the Dem ocratic nominee for Muyor lu the spring. Mayor Duuuo will bo uomlunted oil tho Ileef Trqst ticket and Charles II. Mitchell will be tho nominee of the Independence League. Tho Lithuanian ltepubllcnn Leuguo of Illinois, ut Its annual meeting mid election, indorsed J. J. Kllus, candidate for county commissioner, uud tho en tire Itepubllcau ticket. John A. IVlku, for Stato Senntor, and John F. Hmulskl for State Treas' urer, have been Induced by tho Polish Itepubllcau Leuguo of Cook county, Tho city council must he controlled by tho garbage can trust. Kvery year It passes a law requiring householders to buy a new sot of garbage cans. What a shame it Is to show up the rich scoundrels who sell poisonous food o the people. The high-toned Chicago clubs are awfully put out about It. Xo four year terms for Mayors. Make tho term ono year. Tho wlde-tlro ordinance is ns dead as the other ordinances. The only ordinances passed by tho city council that are observed nro or dinances which gave Marshall Field or some other tax dodger tltlo to some public alley for their private use. In the mcautlmo the campaign Is pro gressing smoothly and rapidly without the active Intervention of tho Iroquois Club, which Is composed largely of mon too poor to belong to tho Union League ami ton proud to belong to the County Deuieruey, Tho U. 8. Weather lturcau now urn. diets the weather 00 hours In advance. This Is just ns well. Iu fuct tho Weatlw er Ilurcau would be just ns likely to bo as uccuruto ns It Is now if It predicted I six mouths In advaueo. Ninety-seven ier cent of Its Chicago predictions for the last live mouth were so erroneous lis to lo laughable. Carter II. Harrison's chances for the Democratic mayor ltv uomluatlou brighten with every hour. Tho cranks want to lengthen tho terms of tho City Treasurer as well as that'of the Mayor. Why not make all of tho Jobs life isisltlous and turn them over to the tax dodging clubs for disposal? , Krnst Hummel should receive the votes of all citizens who want an able, honest nnd hardworking public olllclul ns their County Treasurer. 'IJho Itepubllcun candidates for Uni versity Trustees, Mrs. C. T. Alexander, L. L. Lehman, F. L. Hatch and Alex. McLean, are nil well qua 1 1 lied to hold the positions they aspire to. Voto for them. James C. ltooley should bo elected Municipal Judge. Able and honest, he has made a clean and aggrcDslvo record and would grace a seat on tho Munici pal Court bench. Mayor Duuuo told the Oommorelnl Association banqueters tho other night that ho was strictly enforcing tlio 1 o'clock ordinance, tho high license or dinance mid other ordinance against saloons, lie did not tell them, how ever, that ho had Issued orders that uoiio of tho gentlemen before him wcro to he arrested for selling poisonous food or that his friendship for the Itcct Trust was too great to express In words.

REEF TRUST CRIME. It Must Not Be Interfered With by the Local Authorities in Any Way At All. High Toned Criminals Who Defraud and Poison the People Free from Prosecution. Only the Poor, Who Violate Statutes, Must Feel the Vigor of the Law. Oh, government Inspection Is a good thing! The very first week of the alleged "strict government Inspection" at the Ileef Trut plants ut the Union Stock Yards, the few city Inspectors, accord ing to the Health Department resrt for the week ending October t), 1IHM), condemned and destroyed llHVIW pounds of me.it. THTs Includes lit) cat tle, 1!:) calves, 1M4 Immature calves, 111 heep, US" hogs, IKO cans sour ham, sausage trimmings, etc., 03 cases and 13 barrels of canned goods. Where, oh, where arc the reforms In the Ileef Trust buildings that the whole world asked for? They do not exist. The buildings are rottcner than over. "A good physician never tells his pa tient what medicine he is going to pre scribe." This Is the nuswer Ilutldlng Commis sioner Itartzcii made when asked what ho would do to tho stockyards Interests. Mr. Ilartzcn's Inspectors have reported laxity at the stockyards In complying with changes ordered thrco months ago. "It looks as If wo had u big task lu front of us," said tho commissioner. "I expected a few men would go out there and check up on changes mndo lu n few days. Hesults of the reluspectlon be gun only show minor requirements com plied with and a decided spirit to either Ignore or neglect alterations that must he made." Too Ileef Trust Is still busy In Chi cago. Just read tho following dis patch: Washington, I). C, Oct.. 8. Secretary WINou has discovered that the pure food law Is violated by what Is called "pure leaf lard, kettle rendered." This Is composed of HO per cent lard, L"0 per cent beef stearin, fi per cent hog stear in, n per cent peanut oil and 10 per cent cottonseed oil. Our Mayor Is making a groat fellow of himself by presiding at all the llccf Trust banquets uud annual dinners of the wholesale ihiIhoii merchants' clubs. Tho Health Department of the city has taken the cue from this. Merchants who sell rotten food are not to bo arrested after this. Health Commissioner Whalen an nounced a new policy for Ids depart ment when he refused to allow Chief Food Inspector Murray to arrest a Greek candy dealer for selling bad goods. "We will not arrest any nno for keep ing bad goods unless they try to es cape," Dr. Whalen said, and ho In st rueteil the Inspector to bring a civil Milt against the dealer. Health Commissioner Whalen sent a letter to all the employes lu his de partment, ne,tlf.vlng them that they iniit not reveal fuels to readers and that all public statements must come through li I in. In Dr. Whaleu's depart ment are the well-known "crusaders" Iusiectors Hedrlck, Murray ami Van Prang. Crime Is not crimo when committed by Ileef Packers nud wholesalo mer chants, it seems. Our hlgh-toued clubs at their annual dinners last week dep recated tho attacks upon tho packers and others for selling rotten and poison ous Mull' to the pcoplo for food. Only tho poor deserve to he punished for committing crime In Chicago. At the Ileef Trust bnuquet tho othor night, Mayor Diiuno presided and Ills former law partner was the principal speaker. At (ho request 'of a Stock Vnnls -delegation ono year ngo, Mayor Dunno laid off Chief Meat Inspector Murray beenuso ho hnd been too diligent In ex posing Ileef Trust conditions, Tho world-wide agitation canned by awful Ileef Trust disclosures appears to buvo had no effect on the city administra tion. OlIlclaN are now forbidden to ar rest men who sell sjlsouous food to the people. If the business interests of Chicago are opisjsed to the exiiosure of frauds by the city authorities, what Is the use of maintaining either a health depart ment or n isdlee force? When our leading clubs at the Miest of the llccf Trust advocate a saturnalia of vice, why bother the common criminals? Tho hlgh-toued clubs and Ileef Trust nKloglsts are now saying that un drawn poultry that has been lu cold storage for years, Is tit for food I What a sublime spectacle It wan to see the .Mayor of the great city of Chi cago making u speech to the Ileef Tmst and Merchant Polsouers at their uuuual banquet. Instead of hugging himself with Joy at the very Idea of his being honorel by these law breakers, Urn Mn.xor would only be doing his duty If he had half of his bearers locked up for 'elating the pure food laws. Members of the Ileef Trust have tak en to killing people with automobiles. Their old way of killing jk-ojiIo with rotten beef and poisonous canned good was much safer for the killers. If tho Ileef Trust does not bring on a revolution In this country It will not be Its fault. The new meat Inspection law was made for tho Ileef Trust and approved by the Ileef Trust before It wns passed. Nearly all of the old government In sKctors whose work uroused the world, have been retained. The Ileef Trust Is the foo of Ameri can labor. It Imports most of its work men lu gangs, houses them In Its own hovels and absorbs their carnlugs us If they were slaves. llussla would scorn a system of gov ernment Inspection llko the one which has pleased tho Ileef Trust for so many years. The very latest cry of tho Beef Trust gang Is "Don't disturb business condi tions by exposing our frauds!" N the City Health Department or ganized to defend tho Ileef Trust? Albert P. Chirk will bo roclectcd ns ho deserves to be, State Senator from the l.'lth District by au Immense major ity. Vole for Isluoru it. Iluaes for Munic ipal Judge and place on the Municipal Court bench nu able and nn honest man. Krnst Hummel will bo elected Coun ty Treasurer. Lawrence P. Iloylo would make a record as Judge of the Municipal Court that would bo a credit to himself and to Chicago. He should bo elected. James 8. Hopkins, tho popular Mm-ler-ln-Chancery, Is one of tho ablest lawyers In Chicago, and a coming leader In tho Itepubllean party, Kdwnrd A.
