W. G. T. 0. EYES "
It Is said that members cf the Gary
chapter. W. C. T. U., may soon send
a committee to steel officials in Gary
and Chicago to demand a straight out
and out expression of their opinion
on the booie question. Some of the
members have noted that one of the
newspapers In Gary, said to be con
trolled by the steel gang, has been
assailing Mayor Johnson by running
fake storie to the effect that the
union Is criticising his candidacy.
Steel, neer and Reform.
The women have noted that the
same steel officials who lease out steel
corporation property for the largest
saloon in Indiana opposite the steel
mill gate are either themselves or
through their hirelings identified with
the several "moral reform" waves
sweeping over Gary. Linking of re
form and the maintenance of the
greatest saloon in Indiana at the main
gate of th- greatest steel plant in the
United States is said to puzzle the
good women. Besides they note that
th "reform" newspaper, the Post, has
among its owners a prominent Fort
Wayne brewer. And Fort Weyn pro
duces the beer that is sold in the
Steel Trust site saloons In Gary, held
in the name of the Gary Land company.
GARY COUNCIL TO
TAKE UP BUDGET
The Gary council tonight will con
sider the 1H budget. It probably
will take a couple of evenings to get
into shape. The aldermen didn't meet
last night as Company F was engaged
in its farewells and they wanted to
take part in the proceedings.
Gary will have to fix salaries that
will be on the second class ba3is. so
the budget will be much larger.
WANT JUDGE DUNN
AS GUARD CAPTAIN
It is probable that City Judge William
M. Dunn, a Spanish-American war vet
eran, will be asked, to take the cap
taincy of the Gary home guards. Judge
Dunn, despite his m mllltory experience
enlisted as a private.
The judge is now brushing up on drill
regulation changes, and will soon be
Qualified to serve as an instructor. The
mere fact that one has been a drill
master or has gone through a few
weeks' training does not make hie com
petent to become an officer. It Is the
governor's wish that mature men. those
who have been under fire rather than
text-book strategists become officers.
For this reason Judge Dunn has. been

We will try to do our duty so that we

PORK CHOPS 50 CENTS?

CHICAGO, Aug. 21. Pork chops soon

Miller, president of the Chicago Retail

report on meat conditions.

Excuse Business Men.
Married men owning their own busi

doctors, lawyers, architects, etc., prob

men were removed from their homes
and forced to rebuild their business, it
is considered an injustice.

Writ Is Denied.
In denying a writ of habeas corpus
to Albert Jones and John Story of Rich
mond County, Georgia, under arrest fur
trying to evade the draft law, Judge
Speer of the United States District
Court, held Congress has power under
the constitution to summon for military
service, at home or abroad, every citizen
of the United States.
The judge found arainst the conten
tion which has had widespread propa
gandist circulation that it is unconsti
tutional to send drafted armies to for
eign soil. A United States court has no
power to declare an act of Congress
invalid, because it is inimicable to the
common law, he ruled.

bought at $200 to $300 less than the
Super-Six, no two of them had sales
equal to those . of the Hudson. That
show show popular the Super-Six has
always been as compared to other cars.
It is-easy to imagine how much more
popular it will be now that there is no
such price advantage. The Hudson
Super-Six has made itself the wanted
car as compared with others.
It is the largest selling fine car. Al
most 40,000 are in daily use. It has
established itself as the life-time car.
