HOW JOS. MEDILL PATTERSON BECAME A HOT SOCIALIST. YOUNG CHICAGO MILLIONAIRE WHO "BELONGED TO THE RE PUBLICAN PARTY" FROM HE REDITY. WILL PROBABLY LEAD THE RADICALS AS CAN DIDATE FOR MAYOR OF CHI CAGO. Special Correspondence to The Press. CHICAGO. March 10.—Jos. Me dill Patterson, the 2" year old heir *o millions, who has created an Immense sensation by declaring for advanced socialism, in a letter re signing from Mayor Dunne's cab inet, has been steadily in the pub lic eye since he graduated from Yale five years ago. Young Patterson is the grandson of the founder of the Chicago Trib une and son of R. W. Patterson, publisher of the Tribune. At Yale he belonged to the haughtiest club fraternities and as sociated wiih youths of gold. Three years ago he married the daughter of Harlow N. Higanbotham, retired partner of Marshall Field. He is a member of the most fash ionable group of the smart set of Chicago, belongs to exclusive clubs, rides after hounds at Onwentsia and has recently purchased 40 acres in Lake Forest upon which to erect a country house. With young Phelps- S'.okes, who married a Jewish ci gar maker, Rose Pastor, he is a pign of the times, or an aberration from the established course. He denounces money, which ho never lacked. It is said —whether with truth or with falsity—that his mind has been guided into ways of socialism by Clarence Darrow, who parted AMERICAN LEGATION IS A VERITABLE FORTREESS (Scrlpps News Association.) PEKIN, March 10—The Ameri can legation in this city is prepared tor any emergency and the reports of serious anti-foreign riots in vari ous parts of China have no terrors for the members of the legation. The last preparations have been completed and. if It should become liecessary, the legation will be able to stand a long siege. The Ameri can legation in this city is a regu lar fortress and is the first official residence owned by the American government in any country. The buildings were constructed by Sidney W. Meeley, assistant su pervising architect of the treasury department, who was sent to China Bfter the Boxer troubles, more than three years asm. for the purpose of huilding a safe retreat for the mem bers of the American legation. He completed his task recently and re turned to the United States. The buildings are of brick and 6tone and of very solid construc tion. The largest building is for the use of the minister. Surround ing it are buildings for the secre taries, the chancellary building and c number of smaller structures. They are all built closely together and are surrounded by a formidable wall of masonry, a short distance hack of the wall on one side is the great city wall, on which has been constructed an American fort, •quipped with small guns.

MEDILL PATTERSON, with Mayor Dunne last summer be cause the mayor refused to be suffi ciently radical. The presumption is that Darrow —or some one similarly inclined — has been his philosopher and friend, since Patterson in his letter of res ignation asserts that ho has read but one book on socialism. It is said that Darrow, the social ists and the more radical advocates of municipal ownership, propose to run Patterson at the head of a so cialistic municipal ownership ticket in the next mayoralty campaign. As grandson of Jos. Medill, who was one of the founders of the re publican party, he belonged to the republican party, and when he re signed his position as assistant ed itor of the Tribune to lend his sup port to the municipal ownership campaign last spring, he did not formally sever his connection with erio.an legation Is now as well pro tected as any of the other legations. In a case of emergency the Ameri can residents of Pekin could find refuge in the legation quarters. Tlie present garrison of the Am errican fort is not very strong, but should it become necessary, there are enough troops available in Ma nila and two transports are in the harbor of Manila, ready to bring a strung force of American soldiers to Pekin in case of trouble. nOOGATT GOVERNOR fScrtpps News Association.)

Patterson's own statement of his dip into socialism is that some time ago a club was formed in the 25th •ward of Chicago to discuss econom ics, and rules were made prohibit ing membership except when the applicants were unanimously elect ed. Finally, he said, two socialists were admitted, "more that they might be ridiculed and questioned than anything else." "But," concluded Patterson, "they always seemed to have the last word and best of the argument and finally other members became in fected. " YOUNG MILLIONAIRE'S STAND FOR SOCIALISM. The universal ballot gives every male citizen an equal political op portunity. The common owner ship of all the means of production and distribution would give every body an equal chance at music, art, sport, study, recreation, travel, self respect and the respect of oth ers. I, for one, cannot see why those things should be concentrat ed more and more in the hands of a few. By distributing money evenly, I do not mean to say that all the money In the country should be cut up into equal bits and that every body should get a bit. But, on the contrary, I believe that the owner ship from which money springs should be vested in the whole com munity. In other words, as I under stand it, I am a socialist. — From Joseph Medill Patterson's letter to Mayor Dunne. AT 1100DW (Scrlpps News Association.) LAKEWOOD, N.

KNOCK OUT PLUMBING LICENSES The supreme court yesterday ren dered a decision knocking out as unconstitutional the plumbers' li cense law. The court stated that the theory upon which the different professions were protected by li censes was to safeguard public health. The court insinuated that this was not the object of the plumbers' license law, but that it was designed to place control of the plumbing business in the hands of a state board—in other words: to create a monopoly. The decision can not help but give the public some relief from the plumbing grafters. 9 Keep the little ones healthy and happy. Their tender, sensitive bodies require gentle, healing rem edies.
