CHICAGO AND THE DIVORCE EVIL
The rather startling and astounding statement
comes from Chicago that 17,000 divorce suits
have been field in the courts of that city within a
Hardened aa is that city and as accustomed as
it is to doing things on a big scale, the announce
ment has caused a pause for thought, even there,
while the rest of the country fairly gasps.
The marriages consummated in the city of Chi
cago within that same period total 40,000. The di
vorces are almost 50 per cent of that number.
As a matter of course there is much specula
tion of the cause and reasons advanced.
The extravagance of women is one of the ideas
iven. Men make the statement that they cannot
eep up with the pace; that wives are no longer
satisfied with what their husbands can earn and
leave the home to enter the business world in or
der to make more money with which to buy more
clothes and to enter into the so-called social life
with a wider sphere.
The social life is a blight on domesticity; it
kills the initiative, dulls the conscience, destroys
the love of home and children and leads to di
Prohibition, of course, enters into the argu
ment. It is a very convenient handle upon which
to hang about all and everything which one feels
contributed towards things going wrong.
Those who blame prohibition make the claim
that there is more drinking by far among women
and those who never drank before, and that the
younger set among whom a great majority of the
marriages are performed are doing the drinking
now in stead of the more hardened characters of
the pre-prohibition days.
Efforts are being made to check up the state
ment that many young people have contracted
marriage while under the influence of bad gin,
which latter substance seems to be a prequisite to
most “parties” nowadays.
Be that as it may, and be the reason prohibition
or something else, the fact is alarming that the
proportion of divorces is increasing at a rate
which causes the most careless and hardened to
think about it and wonder what the end will be,
and if the marital relation is going on to the social

SWIFT JUSTICE GIVEN
Two records were made last month by cities
that emphasized the importance of swift justice
in criminal cases.
In Kansas City on a Monday, a man robbed a
filling station. He was arrested shortly after
ward, and the next day was brought to trial. He
was sentenced to 10 years in the penitentiary, all
in less than 24 hours.
On the same day two men held up a bank at
Kingston, Oklahoma. Within an hour both men
were captured. The next day, Tuesday, they were
brought to trail, convicted and sentenced to 25
years each and inside of an hour were on their
wav to the penitentiary.
That kind of procedure takes all the profit out
of the bandit business.
It makes crime unpopular among those who
follow' it as a profession. It removes the glamour
and heroism in the trade. It creates the publis
confidence in law enforcement. It dignifies the
criminal courts. It means that with swift justice
there will be less crime. It ought not to be so rare
as to attract attention.
Hasten the day when our courts will treat crim
inals with swift justice, the outcome of which will
be less crime.
