CHICAGO ASS'N OF COMMERCE OPPOSES DANGEROUS BILL The Chicago Association of Com merce has gone on record as opposed to the Fitzgerald bill which is now before Congress and which by reason of its terms, proposes to establish a monopolistic government fund compen sation act for the District of Columbia. Harve G. Badgerow, as chairman of the insurance section of the Associa tion of Commerce, with the assistance of George Truitt. chairman of the sub committee, casualty section, secured the adoption of the resolution. The action of the Association of Commerce committee on legislation was approved by the executive com mittee and President Edward E. Gore has notified the Chicago delegates in Congress of the wishes of the Chicago Association of Commerce concerning this pending legislation. The resolution as adopted is as fol lows: "Resolved that the Chicago Associ ation of Commerce opposes the pas sage of H. Ii. 10034 because it is in an unwarranted and unnecessary inter ference by the government in private business and that the officers of the association immediately communicate with our representatives in Congress and take such other proper action as may be necessary to oppose the pas sage of said bill." CONGRESSMEN SPEND TOO MUCH TO BE ELECTED NOT IN CHICAGO Announcement is made in a Wash ington dispatch that consideration of legislative plans to check large ex penditures in political campaigns will be formallv undertaken by the Senate privileges and elections committee next week. Demand for some action on the part of Congress has been made by Senator Pomerene of Ohio and others, who be lieve the action of the Supreme Court in the Newberry case has opened the way for unlimited use of money in the campaigns this spring. The decisions of the court, Attorney-General Daugh erty has since held, invalidates the corrupt practices act. Numerous proposals for circumvent ing the decision of the court include bills to modify the rules of the Sen ate, provide new laws and amend the Constitution. Both Senators Borah of Idaho and Johnson of California have voiced the demand of the Republicans of the so-called progressive group for some action. MILK PRODUCERS TO RE-ORGANIZE NEXT WEEK A campaign for the reorganization of producers in the Chicago milk mar keting district into a co-operative mar keting association will be opened Tuesday, when Aaron Sapiro, attor ney, of San Francisco, will address a mass meeting of farmers in Chicago. About 15,000 farmers in twenty counties of Illinois, Indiana and Wis consin are included in the district. "We are planning an organization,' Mr. Sapiro said, "based upon the prin ciple that the man who milks the cow is entitled to half of what the Chicago consumer pays for milk. He is at present receiving only 30 per cent as the result of his lack of organization. People who patronize the Brevoort Hotel always patronize it again. Some "leading citizens" who favor a horse racing festival here are remark able for their "leading" qualities. But leading qualities without much money and popular support won't lead very far. Peter Bartzen is going to be elected State Treasurer. A race track in Chicago would kill all legitimate sport in this vicinity for fifty years. William J. Healy is making a good record as Sanitary Trustee. He would make a good mayor. ; y , v FRANCIS STUYVESANT PEABODY. Head of the Peabody Coal Company and Leader in the World of Finance, Business and Politics. EAGLETS Judge Martin M. Gridley has always made a fine record on the Superior Court bench. The Brevoort is not the biggest hotel, but it is one of the best hotels in the whole world. Many people believe that a race track in Chicago with wide open bet ting means the reopening of Chicago's past race track record of murder, crookedness, robbery and crime. Some daily newspapers which are always abusing the mayor and using up type in berating the city adminis tration are said to have a reason for playing up the wonderfully windy scheme to reopen "the sport of Kings" in Chicago. CLAYTON F. SMITH. Popular City Treasurer Often Talked of for Mayor. Isadore Hochstein, Chief Clerk in the City Prosecutor's office and one of the most popular young Republicans in town, will probably be the Repub lican committeeman from the new 34th ward. William J. Healy's friends declare that he would poll an immense Dem ocratic vote if the Republicans should name him for mayor. Aid. Thomas R. Caspers of the 26th ward, is making a good record. Chicago needs more street lights and more bridges also. HARRY Of the Great Moving Picture I ' '''Sx Chicago's respectable bookmakers view the pneumatic race track propo sition with suspicion. Charles Center Case, the well known and able lawyer would make a fine judge of the Superior Court. Dixon C. Williams, the well Known manufacturer, deserves well at the hands of the Democratic party. He Is a born leader. As nuisances on the boulevards the American Railway Company's wagons are a close second to Uncle Sam's big mail trucks. Walter E. Schmidt, treasurer of the Sanitary District, is being boomed for the Republican nomination for mayor. The penitentiary is too good for men who steal school funds. The leading members of every so ciety and club in Chicago read The Eagle. The county clerk's office under Robert M. Sweitzer has never known a scandal. It is clean, efficient and ably managed. Charles E. Peace, the popular Thompson Committeeman from the Twenty-first ward is clean, able and loyal in politics. That's what makes him a winner. M. LUBLINER. Theaters House of Lubliner & Trinz. .
