JEWS SAY POLICE ARE HARSH.
5th Ward Meeting Protests Against Treatment Race Receives.
The Jewish voters of the Fifth ward met at 1106 Independence avenue last night to register a protest against the police. The claim was made by the speakers that the police are disposed at times to deal too harshly with the Jews and arrest and use them roughly without cause or justification.
The simplified form of government proposed by the Republicans was explained by George H. Edwards, candidate for mayor; Fred Coon, candidate for judge of the North Side court, and Wentworth E. Griffin.
