GOOD ADVICE TO AUTOISTS
FROM JUDGE JOHN STELK
Rainy weather and wet, slippery
streets moan, extra caroful driving.
When in doubt adopt tho safo coursn
speod must always glvo way to
Accldonts aro thoy "tough luck" or
Just "carelessness." Think it over.
An ounco of prevention Is worth a
pound of cure.
Don't follow other vohlcles too close
ly tho more room you have- tho bet
tor, especially when tho streets aro
wet or slippery.
Tho oxorclso of caro to prevent acci
dents is a duty which you owo to your
self and fellow men. It is better to bo
slightly dolaycd than to causo an acci
dent. Go slow and sound horn when turn
ing corners, passing children at play,
driving near schools, passing other
slow moving vehicles.
Remember that it takes less tlmo to
learn to do a thing right than-dt does
to explain why you did it wrong.
13o caroful whon passing corners.
Think of tha other follow.
For tho sako of safety, keep your
mind on your driving.
Accident pro vent Ion: It is bottcr to
Ioso n few seconds in avoiding an ac
cident than a month In nursing an
Tho carolosa driver Is unpatriotic.
To bo caroful is to bo patriotic.
Every man who, through his caro
lessness, causes a provontablo acci
dent which results in personal injury
or damago to property Is nn indus
trial slacker and is placing additional
burdens on others.
Bravo men aro always caroful men.
Tho public wants safety, not oxcuscs.
Don't raco motors needlessly. Don't
mako unnecessary noises.
It is bettor to bo caroful than to bo
crippled or to cripple somo other
Drlvo carefully and thereby mako
friends with tho police and public.
Protect tho public respect the
And Give Overworked Post Of
fice Employes Better Wages.
When "outsldo" letter postago was 3
cents a lottor a surplus rovenuo of
$154,000,000 wo3 raised in ono year.
It was dropped to 2 cents to please
tho fancy of somo bureaucrat.
Put It back to 3 cents and glvo let
ter carrlors and other omployes liv
ing wages. Thoy desorvo hotter pay.
Chicago has gono mad with reform
But as ovnry reform moans graft
and ovory graft Is attached to a pub
lic pay roll tho pcoplo is getting sick
and tired ot tho stuff.
Especially tho taxpaylng public.
Tho Domestic Relations gang.
Tho Morals Department.
Tho Social Sorvlco boys.
And all tho rest of thom desorvo a
showing up that will rotlro them to
private llfo and detach thom from
tho tax eating propositions that many
believe them to bo.
City Council Should Regulate
Conditions in the Loop.
Tho City Council should pass an or
dinance prohibiting peoplo from loit
ering on tho sldowalks In the Loop
Pedestrians should bo compelled by
law to keep to tho right. As thing
are at present, without any sort of
regulation, some of tho down town
streeti are almost Impassable.

SWEET, OF THE NEW YORK ASSEMBLY
Tlmddeus C. Sweet, speaker of
tho Now York ussembly and tho man
responsible for tho suspension and
"trial" of the live Socialist members,
entered a long defense of his attltudo
at n New York city public banquet.
Mr. Sweet not only condemned
tho Socialists and defended tho action
of tho assembly, but ho referred to
tho action of Charles K. Hughes In
the enrly stages of tho case ns "hasty
and Ill-advlhcd." Ho said thero was
no room In this country for "traitors"
and that ho could Hud no dlffcrcnco
between tho Socialist party and the
Communist party, and referred to tho
Socialists as "the.so ilvo undesirables."
Ho also contended that tho proceed
ings at Albany had been mlMepie
sentod to the people. Speaker Sweet
In pnrt said:
"I have always held to tho belief
that the tlmo to smash a riot Is at
Its Inception. Americans havo always
dono themselves great harm through their leniency. It Is a national falling.
"Thero has como a time when these splendid qualltlcatlous can no longer
be permitted to form a part of u national program.
