Loan Sharks to bt Curbed.
The rapsclly of the loan shark of
Chicago and Illinois will be curbed
by a bill now pending in the iegisla
ture which has the endorsement of
the Legal Aid Society and several
clubs and commercial organizations.
Persistent warfare has resulted In
pulling the fangs of the money loan
ers, who a few years ago openly, and
even now In secret, levy a tribute of
30 and 40 per cent on their victims.
An investigation fins shown that some
$2.1,000,000 Is Invested In the "loan
shark" business, of which $3,100,000 is
employed by 121 offices in Chicago,
according io the report made to the
Russell Sage Foundation. That re
port gave instances where the extra
fees, brokerage, protest fees and col
lection charges added to the interest
charges made the total rate paid as
b'.gh as 1731 per cent per annum. Oth
er instances were found where men
and women had been paying for years
on a debt of this kind, and then owed
several tiroes as much as the original
principal. The Apmadoc bill fixes a
maximum of 3 per cent per month
which may be charged for loans upon
household goods, wearing apparel, or
mechanic's tools, and 4 per cent for
the assignment of wages. A limit
of $1,000 is placed upon any loan in
this classification. It was drawn by
the committee which included George
High, representing the Industrial
club: M. V. Wellington, the Legal Aid
society; John V. Farwell, the^ Com
mercial club; A. C. nisei, the" City
dub, and Marvin B. Poole, of the As
sociation of Commerce.

the spiritual advancement of the com

to be begun at the First Baptist
church next Sunday and to extend in
meetings from day to day for elgbt
days—concluding on the evening of
Sunday the 26th. There are many
distinguished preachers, able schol

exponents of the scriptures who will
be present and will add their best

study and prayer and experience—to
the program. There wii! bo many
