UNDERWOOD FOR PRE8IDENT.
The growth of sentiment In favor of
the nomination of Underwood of Ala
bama for President Is growing among
It Is becoming more and more ap
parent that Underwood Is a big man,
and that much of the credit that Mr.
Clark gets for Democratic leadership
in Congress really belongs to the Ala
His friends say that his nomination
would unite the whole party, and the
very fact that he Is from the South
would win him votes from Republi
cans who will rejoice In showing
their appreciation of this evidence of
a thoroughly reunited country.
AN OPPRE88IVE ORDINANCE.
The City Council Increased the prlco
of living In every household in Chi'
cago when It passed nn ordinance for
bidding the sale of vegetables by
measure and ordering that they should
be sold only by weight. Housewives
all over the city complain that they
do not get half the quantity now for
twice the money.
TALKING ABOUT WATER.
Chicago has spent many millions of
dollars In trying to secure a pure
water supply, with the best water In
the world right at Ita door.
When Chicago built a lake tunnel
four and one-half miles long It thought
It was astounding the world.
When It was discovered that tho
sewage was contaminating the water
supply the sanitary district, with all
of lu expenses, was the result.
What n lesson there is In the fact
that Ixi3 Angeles, Cal., brings Its
wnter supply 240 miles. Of this length,
47 miles is In tunnel and over nlno
miles In steel siphons ten feet in
PUBLIC BATHS FOR PUBLIC
Many of the people who frequent
public gathlng beaches, as a matter
of choice, prefer the lake front or tho
parks to sleep In. We do not think
that It was a good thing for Lake
View or Edgewater to secure that
beach between Windsor and Montrose
It simply meat a large addition to
Its present grolcs Eupply of unde
sirables. COMMODORE PUOH ON THE LAKE.
Commodore Jurats A Pugh has been
quoted by the daWeb on the subject
of the water .arnlal and naval re
lew to be held here In August.
'Some people Bay that Lake Michi
gan Js treacherous and no good," said
the commodore. This carnival and
ret lew Is going to demonstrate what
an asset Chicago has In Lake Michi
gan The lay of the land Is such that
from &hi,ojo to COO.0CH) persons can
view the races from Grant Park.
We expf-ct from 1,000 to 1,500
power boats here from various points.
The biggest motor boat races ever
held In the world will be held here.
Germany, France. England and Italy
arc expected to be represented
Aside from power boat races, there
will be a marathon swimming race,
exmbitlons of iho life-saving crews,
and fireworks every night. There will
also be a Venetian night, when there
will be 1,000 cruisers brilliantly light
ed off Grant I'ark."
