A GOOD CABINET Mayor Harrison Shows Good Sense in the Selection of Honest Men for the Big Places. No Journalistic Stiffs of Doubtful Political An . ccstry Disgrace the Choice of the Brand New Mayor. The Inauguration Was the Cause of Much Genuine Demo- cratic Rejoicing and the People Wish the New Chief Magistrate Every Success. The Spavined Journalists and Merriam Seat Grabbers Will Now Have to Got Behind the Manhole Trust to Win. Mayor Hnrrlson was inaugurated on Monday night In the presence of n great crowd of people The llito of faces that looked over tho mayor's long desk then Included tho following: Mayor Busso, Mayor Harrison, Mr. and Mrs. Sterling Morton, Joy Morton, Miss Edlt,h Harrison, Mrs. Carter H. Harrison, Dr. Fred Owsley, Miss Mudcllno Rdward, , Miss Edna Owsley, Heaton Owsley. The mayor was escorted to the City Hall by a great parado -"headed by Robert E.

Asslstunt Corporation Counsel (spe cial assessment work) Philip J. Mc Konna. Master Randolph Street Market Otto Fink. Oh, tho inauguration! What celebra tion For emulation can with it com pare? Whon to that chamber whoro bosses clamber, Out; Carter onco moro did repair. 'Twos' there you'd sue tho fine pollco men Making a skrlmmago before tho door, And tho 'men and ladles, likewise somo shadies, All standiug 'round the council floor. Their pillow scorning, last Monday morning, Themselves adorning, all by early light; With Iteinberg's lilies and daffy-down dlllles, And gold and Jewels and rich dia monds bright. And then approaches five hundred coaches, With Carter's broaches on their la pels fine. Inspector Lavin, ne'er threw a spavin With hie club drawn, prancing, v made them keep the line. Then the Are alarms and sergeant-at arms All In their dress coats and patent hoes, Opened the massy doors to the bold, ambamdorf, Who came from all wards to see the views. 'Twould hnvo mado you crazy to seo Bath House, alsy, All Jewel- from Jasey to his dia mond suits; ' With tho noblo Konna and that Lost Banana, Ex-Aldormnn Foreman, who re ceived Tho Boots. Mayor Harrison walking, with a smile and talking To Burko and Relnberg, heroes or groat fame, And Alderman Powers and James T. Bowers, . Who know exactly whence tho money came. Themselves preceding, Mr. Busso leading The new mayor to his royaf chair; And that lino old fellow, J., Ham L., oh! Showed off the contour of his love ly hair. Then tho noble Russians, likewise the Prussians, ' In I'ne spring Jackets and golden cuffs; And the Bavarians, and Proud Hun garians, And evorythtngarlans, all in furs and muffs. Then Shorlff Zlmmer, who was no trimmer, Looked at the gallery, but could not porcelve Aid. Merriam missing and gone a-flshing, Because ticket dealers would not givo him leave. Then camo the slats and the boys with Hats Reflecting back your Imago for to ee; For tho noblo work of good Robert Burko Showed in tho County Democracy. With bands and presses and crowns and dresses And aldormanesses and tho Board of Works, Made old Jim Healy say quite gen v teely; f , "I am proud to seo tho llko among tho Turks!" And Carter thanked them while the loud anthem Sounded from cafes in neighboring shops; With lobstor and crab moat and oth er sweet meat, And wine and lager and imported pops. This is a bad lyear for the M's. Merriam and that big "Journalistic" stiff from tho lunch table will now have to Join the Man Hole Makers if they want to make good. The Man Hoi gang has been buy result. Why? ing wine on th There Is a great fight over the man hole contract. More money Is spent or misspent annually for bum manholes than for new schools. Hence the rush. The people who have been getting the coin for years expect a cinch this year ill Harry Olson should be retired from tho Chief Justiceship of tho Municipal Court next year without fail. If there is not a Domocrutlc lawyer capablo of filling this Job, then givo us somo Re publican whose reputation has been made at the bar and not as an office holder. Common Justice to members of the legislature impels us to call attention to the fact that, according to common report at the time twelve or fourteen years ago Journalistic Blackmailers, who are now posing as reformers and purists, received 1760 each as their share of the Springfield Jackpot. We do not know whether the dallies have since maintained the high standard of allowing their men at Springfield to as they contributed liberally to sides and expect returns. rccclvo as much us they did for tho Jack jot dividend nftor tho Gas Con solidation and Infamous Warehouse bills went through twolvo years ago. But If wo wcro In tho legislature wo would know more about tho journal Istlc uplift of today than wo do now. Givo Mr. Harry Olson a chnnco to prnctlco law after 1012. Ho Is now Chief .Tustlco of tho Municipal Court savo tho 'mark! As nn adept In kcoplng his name before tho public In our cheap dally papers ho is as much of a success as ho was on tho county payroll before ho was "ele vated." Jackpot Journalism was a good thing in tho SO's and 90's. Most of tho Jackpottcrs of that date nro reformers today and aro acting members of tho legislature whom wo bcllovo would shrink from such small sums as they received. Mr. Harrison did not havo to rob Armour of n Journalistic stamp llckor or a milk detecting, fly swatting cow Inspector. Ho found his cabinet with out tho aid of gluo or lumpy Jaw. Tho so-called dally newspapers can breathe easy for a whllo anyway. They hnvo not been robbed to any great extent of wonderful Journalistic re formers aching to swell their heads in public ofllco. 'Tls well. Tho Eagle proposes to support May or Harrison every tlmo that ho hits a crooked contractor or a tough poli tician. Tho Cook County bench needs fumi gating. Charles Fltzmorrls, whom tho mayor has appointed his prtvato sec retary, Is a genuine newspaper mnn and was for years connected with tho Chicago American. Ho onco mado u noted tour of tho world.

Nelthor did ho eat his wcy into favor at the tables of grafters or people seeking franchises. His ap pointment is a clean one and will give general satisfaction to the public, who will bo pleased to seo a man In tho position who does not Imagine him self to be the Mayor, the Commission er of Public Works, tho Jack Pot or the Armour Packing House. Because some dry goods stores ad vertise In the almanacs called "dally papers" is no reason why they should be permitted to violate the fire ordi nances with impunity, BUSSE WAS GOOD He Was Hampered by Swell Headed Jour nalists and Appetite Bill College Pro fessors Looking for Notoriety. But He Himself Gave Chicago One of the Very Best Administrations That It Has Ever Had. He Cleaned the Streets and tho Alleys as They Were Never Cleaned Before and He Gave Us ' Good Street Cars. The Cow Itch from the Stockyards and tho Egotistical Journalists Were Not of Mr. Fred Busso has finished his term as mayor and a better mayor nevor held tho executive ofllco of Chicago. Ills administration was personally honest from start to finish. Tho only Chicago. thing which hurt It were tho appoint ment to office of swell-headed self seekers. There were 'too many "Jour nalists" in his administration and whon one remembers that a "Journal ist" nowadays Is a boy who stands in with tho gang at Springfield or else where and is handed something be- I cause he is "wise" the name of "Journalist" meets with Its popular definition without a blush. Then there was Merriam, a gaunt and hun gry reformer from Iowa, who rivalled bis "Journallstlo" counterparts in tho great department store race for noto riety. The Merriam Commission cast blame upon many good men but shielded tho purchasing agont per haps because ho bought over 4,UUU worth of goods from tho hardware store of another Ink eyed reformer who was on tho commission. Mr. Bus so was not to blamo for either tho Journalistic stiffs who drove friends away from him or tho lnntorn Jawed collegian who tried to Jail everybody without a pull. Busso cleared tho streets, Busso cleared tho alleys. Busso gavo Chicago tho best street cur system In tho world. Busso took the flro department out of chaos, Busso Bliowcd himself at all times a man of his word. Busso will bo remembered with affection and honor when tho swoll headed "Journalists" nnd tho collcgo bred appetlto Bills who alono cast dis credit on his administration hnvo re sumed tho placo on tho manure heap of which they are a part but not an ornament. Mayor' Busso's administration will go down into history as a distinct ad vnnco In tho progress of Chicago an advanco duo to Fred A. Busso nnd to no ono elso. Harry Olson and eight othor boys boosted Into good Jobs by tho ma chlno five years ago will seek re-election noxt year. Tho direct primary points tho way to get them first and it they should slip through that nlno Democrats can boat them as easily at on election as a chef does au egg. Closo tho all-night saloons nnd play no favorites. Tho mombor of tho legislature who does not recolvo a good fnt sum for voting for a "light bill" Is a chump. Fight promotoi'8 are notorious tight wads and now Is tho time for our law makers to mako liny If thoy nro to bo consldored in tho game. Mayor Harrison will do well steer clear of broken contractors. to Xo moro "Journalists" of departments. nt tho hoad No more milk dealers to adminis ter health. The giving of i,000 to each cam paign fund ought to Insure manhole contracts for lifo. Mnnholo contracts are a good thing. No wondor tho men who got tho rako off can givo f 1,000 to mayoralty campaign funds. Clean out tho municipal bench next year.
