m?mmmmmf!U4-U3.4- i9 k MERE TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT "Hey diddle, diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle, The Cow jumped over the Moon." And Samuel Gompers, presi dent of the American Federation of Labor, wiped his feet on the Stars and Stripes! Yes, sir! Got right up at a Labor Day meeting at Oakland, Cal., and stood on a table, so he could do it better! And the War Department's all fussed up about it, and somebody is going to "take action" ! Or, so the daily newspapers tell us. But even if the Chicago Daily Journal and the Tribune have re produced the terrible photograph of Gompers "trampling on the flag" about which the War De partment is. getting all worked up, the people of America are never going to believe that story. You can't tell the people that Samuel Gompers, or anybody else, got up before a union meet ing and trampled on the flag without telling how he took an immediate trip to a hospital for repairs anyway. Samuel Gompers may have trampled on Old Glory to his heart's content in the...

wmmmmmmmmmmmmmm " sin Bill, who has told us that his idea of heaven is a sort of magni fied court of law. And, while mentioning courts, it might not be out of place to re mark that Oscar Lawler who is now "in full charge of the dyna- mits investigation" is the author of the "Lawler amendment" in the Ballingef case; the Lawler who lied about C. P. Conolly on the stand; and the Lawler who later apologized for that lie; the bold, bad Lawler who thumped his chest and told George Pepper, counsel for Gifford Pinchot, he felt like visiting physical punish ment on spine of those engaged in the case ; and the same Lawler who became even as a lamb when Pepper inquired if Mr. Lawler meant him, and that if so, he, Pepper, was quite ready to defend himself. No, attacking the present ad ministration for those gentlemen now decorating the bench and making it a byword throughout the world, is not the same as wip ing one's feet on the flag. Just why the Journal and the Tribune, in the excess of thei...

A GLIMPSE INTO PART OF THE SUBWAY PROBLEM The Ericson subway report to Commissioner Hanberg was put under 19 different heads, each of which he considered an import ant factor in determining: the character and nature of a trans portation subway. The Tiiggest question and the one he places first, is relief of con gested traffic, in relation to which he says: "In order to obtain data for a study of the surface lines prob lems, it seemed desirable to ob tain sufficient information in re gard to the surface lines actual performance and conditions. There was no need to take up the schedeules of the different lines and claim that theoretically more cars might be run, or that as many cars as practical are be ing run, for it is seldom that any surface line is able to operate its cars on a fixed schedule when they have to pass through con gested district as is found be tween Twelfth street.

Glover,' first vice presi dent of the Blacksmiths' Interna tional Union, who has just re turned to Chicago from a trip over the Hafriman lines, during which he made over forty stops in the strike affected district from Kansas City to San Jose, Cal., was optimistic today over the prospect of the shopmen forcing the road to grant recognition of the system federation, the princi ple for which the strike was called. Mr. Glover made close observa tion of conditions in all cities he visited, and in .the majority of them addressed mass meetings, interesting business men and clergymen in 'behalf of the strik ers. "I want to emphasize the sup port moral and financial the ministers have given us," said Mr. Glover.

I JIMMY HOBBS, HE PLAYS HOOKEY NO MORE; WIS- CONSIN SCHOOLS AND BANKS By W. G. Shepherd. (Staff Correspondent.) Madison, Wis., Jan. 4. How did the new Wisconsin progress ive idea of popular government help to make the home life of the Hobbses any belter? In main- ways. For instance it exerted an influence on freckled little Jimmy Hobbs. Jimmy sold papers but, under the state law, he wasn't allowed to be" on the streets after eight o'clock at nigh't. When he ran away from school it wasn't considered a joke. The teacher reported to the superin tendent that he was a truant. The superintendent reported to the in dustrial board. The industrial board reported back to the sheriff and told him as truant officer to get after Jimmy. You can be sure that Jimmy stuck close to school, after that. The state cut down the price of gas from SI. 20 to SI. 00 and, as soon as' the gas company makes a certain amount more, another cut will come, automatically. It forc ed an improvement in street car serv...

. TIME AND PINS The office boy took 'the mail into the office of the boss, laid it on the desk before him, turned, stooped, picked up a pin and moved toward the door. He had carefully placed the pin there an hour before. "Jimmy!" roared the boss. "Yessir!" said Jimmy, with a galvanic start. "Don't let me ever see you stop to pick up a pin again !" Jimmy stared at the "boss in open mouthed astonishment. 'Truth to tell, he thought the boss was crazy. For had not his father told him, time and time again, the story of the boy who picked up a pin and became a bank presi dent or something of that sort? He was firmly grounded in the belief that the boss himself had begun by picking up pins. And now the boss was telling him that, he should never pick up pins again. "Why why I thought " began Jimmy, hesitatingly. "I know you did," said the boss, "but don't you ever think it again. .The pin-saving age is over forever, son.
