But Tho Public has last been aroused to a full knowledge of the fact that if the affairs of Tho City of Chicago Are Ever to be properly administered and if the conditions under which to now suffer Are Ever to to remedied is not to be done by turning rascals out but by driving the rascally tax dodgers into the Penitentiary. Why is that the City Treasury is to Day depleted and that the administration practically crippled because of the operations of the tax dodgers. Why have we an insufficient pol co Force because of the tax dodgers. Why Are our alleyways dirty und prolific Breeding places for disease because of the tax dodgers. Why Are the intercepting Sowers incomplete and our water Supply still polluted and rendered times Unitt for use because of the tax dodgers. Now is really time that to Public should Ite brought to a realisation of these facts und taught to put the blame though there Are 10.000 companies incorporated within Cook county not More than 4.000 will be on the list owing to the limitation which bus been placed on the capitalisation.

The records show that with the Connivance of the state Board of equalization practically All the important trunk Lino companies with Vul Lumble real estate holdings in Chicago have Boon persistent tax dodgers. Home of the latest la the Hue of isl tics is the Cut Lou of Henry l. Hertz for cough ass from Tho seventh District. This is interesting if True but there is nothing particularly surprising about for Hertz wus never yet known to be without Bis lightning Rod out for Somo office oven Wyllo to was hold the undervaluation Are More flagrant lug another Oue. To is present la than others but the Rule of swearing 1 Ternna Revenue collector but that docs Down assessments to n farcical alleged valuation Hus been uniform with All the companies for n series of years. Tho state Board has still further reduced these figures As a Rule and has uniformly ignored the accretions of Reul Lostuto values us Well As the costly improvements which the com punic have made from your to year. Take the Case of the Chicago amp Northwestern a hallway company As an of not Stop Tho vaulting ambition of Tho Depuhl Lynn machine. There is nothing in the world too Good for the Quot great Dane Quot least nothing in Tho opinion of Tho great Dano himself. is announced that to is being groomed Tho Bunto fair for Tho House of National representatives and that his candidacy has completely overshadowed Tho race for the United states senator shop which state s attorney Deceu possesses should permit himself to is used As a cat s Paw la buy such unprincipled undertaking. That will never amount to anything is Patent to every Man of mind who has Given the matter any i Uoung of consideration. Ito Hurt f. Burke s name is and always has been a synonym for honesty in this City. He has worked his Way to the top of the political ladder by fair Square Manly methods he has missed ills life Here among us und no puck of snarling hounds Cun Scure hint to Duy by step plug his heels. Here is an illustration of the a up Ley Quot stories that land their Way into the columns of the dully press on this subject just now Quot information that employees of the thirty Odd Tulles of Railroad track ,.ty Oil inspector s office presided Over have Timon ordered elevated by the City pm Ito Hurt Emmet Burke collected Over Council Aud a great number of deadly $.v,oot& in fees during the month of a formed have announced that if no unfavourable complications urls the recovery of the senator will lie rapid and sore. We congratulate or. Fur Well upon his successful stud Long of the or Deal. Grade Crossings will lie thereby eliminated. This shows the right kind of spirit of the Purt of the City fathers mud proves that mayor blur Olson who is John. Blackett of has West Madison Street has Pul la three of the finest regulation Isis plug a lie is la Chicago. Master in chancery cd word a. Dicker is strongly bucked for the pull Cirii nomination for county judge. Certain leaders Are urging drainage trustee Zina ii. Carter to enter the list of candidates for county treasurer of Cook county. That Legal luminary. Western Starr has again peeped above the Horlon of the civil service commission this time in the attempt to throw some Light on certain proceedings in the House of or reel Ion. Starr says that superintendent John. Sloan is not competent to govern the institution and has hunted up an sex employee of the bridewell who was discharged for drunkenness to prove the charge. Civil service commissioner i Owell very properly ruled Starr out of Tho ease. Starr should to removed from the product of the civil service Hoard room on the Point of somebody a a toe. As a democratic candidate for county treasurer Hon. Thomas a. Smyth would put up a Good Light. Hon. William Fitzgerald one of Chicago s most Public spirited citizens. Is strongly talked of for sheriff by democrats. He is father of the popular assistant corporation counsel William n. Fitzgerald. Former United Stab s Honetor far Well who was operated on some Tlam ago for Gall stores is reported is doing remarkably. For a Man of his nge sen Ator far Well stood Tho operation re Mur Kaldy Well and Tho physicians . Luke s Hospital where was per North Side democrats eau not select a better Mun to Ruu for county commissioner Bun John f. Alies Tho popular Lincoln a venue business Mun. Or. Alies Samc would strengthen the aunty ticket. Connection is that a Man of the Good.ry Nam Utt a woo a form pm a Ami Lillisn la ill will a Lento o idus Lynll Len Louisi i v a i .1.-1 no doubt there Ore Many Good kit Polo who sincerely desire Reform and who imagine the pol co Force should to pulled to pieces la order to accomplish this. Such my ple Are always very much Gru titled where there Are Quot do lugs Quot Over with the grand jury or when Lundblom blows his Yazoo und declares himself to investigate. But when results Are sized up turns out that there has been a tremendous Emit Clit in u ten Init and nobody is Hurt except the police service which is always demoralized mud crippled by such Roii Seuss Cal mud unreasonable crusades. is really too bad that these Reform grand juries should always consider themselves As bodies gifted with a divine commission to Reform branches of the Inch Lac service instead of an inquisitorial institution whose duty is to investigate crime and bring its authors to Puu ashment. Would not be time better spent if instead of hurrying and badgering the unfortunate police Force they got after the Rich Tux dodgers and returned indictments against a score or two of these culprits As for the civil service commission Tho Iliou. Lundblom could 110 More exist without having somebody turning 011 the spit thu he could without the Ulm he breathes. We Are always amused the investigations by this Bourd. usually winds up by Tyml log something radically wrong la its own make up and several times our lowly escaped indicting itself. Tho latest dictum of Tho Board is that will not allow lawyers to defend its victims la the future. The Renson Given for this is a Peculiar one. is that the majority of the commission is composed of men who Are not lawyers and know nothing about Legal procedure. One would surely imagine Tomt tills would be n Good reason Why lawyers should be welcomed in Tho conduct of cases but the thinking apparatus of civil service commissioners Are wonderfully and fearfully constructed. We lire not surprised however thut Tho body which present Terry Les the elect of the City Lylall that is the Isis with the jobs Inis u supreme and very Lino Seorum for Ull Mere forms of Law.

Paules. is apparent that the state s attorney would not Sui Yimou the officers of these arms if he had not received trustworthy information that there was some difference Between Tho books of the companies Aud the inspector s office. Quot for each original package Lush cited Bob Burke or ills deputies receive u cents. Del men suy that the number of original peek noes far exceeds 1s5.075, the number indicated by ins Vcctor Burke s now is very easy to print and publish this sort of Buncombe but is n very different matter when comes to Prisin. is Safe to predict thut nothing will come of Imi that like other Quot Mare s nests Quot periodically discovered by Quot nosing grand juries. will Peter out into vapid Ami foolish Liz ale. Meantime Tom alleged investigation gives Usu pc Opportunity for irresponsible liars to tarnish the reputation of a Good and lion est Man. Ami to All the ears am the minds of the Public with 11 flood of misrepresentation falsification Ami calumny. There should to some Way of holding grand jury hoodlums and aligners of Ihu Raeter responsible for the injury they do to Tho reputation of decent men. is a terrible thing that for the purpose of making a Little capital for scheming self seekers and a partisan press the very machinery of the Law can be used is n Channel for political Aud Damnable .

Anyway the poor tax payers of Chicago have borne the Burden Long enough. Although is the half object of every hypocrite in the county of Cook. Every played out politician who has an a to grind is against him. Every jealous politician who would like to be a Leader himself hates him. Every enemy of mayor Carter h.
