The Jewel ( Kas. ) Republicai
says it would like to see a whole
count'settled entirely by uiai
order people and see what woult
happen. The stores would slant
it as long as they could and then
move away. Banks would close
their doors ; newspipers have to
quit ; the hotels go out of busi
ness ; mechanics move away
schools and churches dwindle
sidewalks go to wreck ; building
wouid be vacated , unpainted ant
dilapidated ; strangers would take
one look and flee. Isn't tha
precisely what would happen o
an entire couuty was populated
with people who bought every
thing in Chicago ? Who would
buy a farm so located ? Be a
