P II ON E YOUR ORDER
Not merely the railroads are to be
under national control, but the latest
scheme is to nationalize automobiles
as well A bill for that purpose has
hern introduced by Congressman
Cocks of the Oyster Day district.
The bill was not drawn or authorized
at the White House, as the hasty
might conclude from this circunr
stance, but comes from the American
Automobile Assceiation. Its purpose
is to prevent the necessity of the
nutoniobile traveler's getting a new
state license every time he crosses a
state line. He must still get a state
license in his homo state, as prere
quisite for a national license and then
both his numbers must bo displayed
on his machine when he goes gee
whizzing through interstate space.
It should be passed, next session.
Nearly half of the states now have
state registration laws, and the
Mhers are in the way of adopting
them. The possession of a state
license is presumptive evidence of
having complied with the laws of the
state from which the traveler com s
That being so, there is no good reas
on why he should be made to stop
and submit to examinations or delays
from the state in which he is merely
a visitor. The Federal license is de
signed to obviate such examinations
and t3 serve the same general pur
pose for travelers bv automobile that
a government passport did for Euro
pean travelers in the early days when
ciossing a national frontier was
maner ror ceremony, it not. lor rus
pieion. the owner of vehicle with a
Federal license will have to obev the
laws of the state in which he travels
just as the holders of licenses from
that state must obey them; but the
formality and delay of relicensing
will be ended if this bill passrs. It is
a movement in behalf of simplicity
and common sense, and it is a matter
of some moment now that vacations
by automobile are becoming more and
more popular Exchange.
Chicago as a Scarlet City.
Take Chicago, then, not because it
ts worse than or different from other
cities nf America, but. on the con
trary, because it is so typical, ,ind
because it is so well known. Whv
have the primary basic guarantees
of civilization broken down in Chica
go? Why has that city, year after
year, such a flood of violent and ad
venturous crimer lhe answer can
be simple and straightforward. Be
cause of the tremendous and elabor
ate organization- financial and pc.li
ticul for creating and attracting
and urntecting thecriminrl in Chica
The criminal is a savage, nothing
. , .1 . . ...
more nor less, Civilization DUHU8 up
painfully our definite, orderly rules of
life-work, marriage, the constant
restraint of the gross and violent im
pulses of appetite. The criminal
simply discards these laws and slides
back again along the way we came
up into l.cense, idleness, thieving
and violence. He merely lapses back
into savagery. To understand the
matter of crime in greet cities, the
first step is t measure the positive
forces working continually to produce
savagery there. These forces are to
day, s they always have been,
greater than can easily be imagined.
.me city trom scarlet mbylon to
smoky Chicago has always b en the
great, market place of dissipation. In
the jungle you would call th's thing
sav; aery. In the ciiv there is a new
side to it. The dweller of the city
true to the in-lincts of c tv life has
made it a fb.anchil transaction, H
has lound 11 a great source of t'a'.n. of
easy money. Th'T- t.ns grown up,
therefore, a double nioiive in protnot
ing it the demand for the Ihin" it
If, and the s'iinnhis of ihe trout
profit in providing it. You mav call
the sale of dissipation in Hu city
savagery by retail. Ethically eon
sidered, this li:in' is hidOUs lierond
belief; socially considered, il is sulci
dal. I lut io be understood and follow
ed through intelligently, it must first
be considered neither ethically nor
socially. Its methods and motives
are the methods and motives of tiure
business and must be considered as
such. There is no other way. That
is wh it I must recognize in describ
ing conditions in Chicago. I must
talk cold business, as the s iv ing "oes.

War Has Started.
The Chinese community is lid agog
with excitement as the result of the
trouble in the Hong Wo Gook Society
which started over the mode of elect
ing officers and has now reached the
stage of a highbinder war. This last
condition was arrived a'j last night
when Lau Yin, a member of the Min
Sing Society nnd elected to the posi
lion of treasurer at the recent meet
ing of the Hong Wo Gook Society by
the insurgent element, was lourd un
conscicus about 8 o'clock at the corn
er of Smith and Deretania streets
He was bably cut on the left side of
his head and the wound apparently
was made with brass knuckles.
The Chinese community is greaty
excited over the matter and the aid
of the police was called in at once. A
clue as to the identity of the assail
ant in me muruerous assault was
found and an arrest will probably bo
made before night. In the meantime
the prominent members of the society
are keeping within doors or goin;
about the streets only w hen aecom
panied by a body guard.
A big meeting will be held in the
makai fish market on Sunday at which
both factions of the society will he
represented and in order to avoid
trouble, which might easily be start
ed, the police will have a detachment
of oflieer's on hand. It. is said that
there are several halchetmen from
San Francisco in town ami that they
are liable to tie called into play bv
(he various factions.
rang Litim Mau, the president of
the society and opposed to the faction
to which Lau Yin belongs, denies all
knowledge of the assault nnd claims
that Lau Yin must have been the
victim or some personal quarrel of
his own. Lau Yin is one of the most
prominent Chinese in the city nnd is
connected with the Wing Wo Tie Co.
He is well off ns regards worldly
goods and also ns regards enemies
The Attorney General's depart
ment is looking into t'.ie society fight
at the request of the Chinese Consul.
The requert was not made in an offi
cia! way but on account of the fact
that the Boi.g Wo Gook Society has
so many members and the trouble
has already reached so serious
stage it was thought best to see if
steps could not be taken to end it at
isOCHIIO.MATIC AND ORDINARY.

Had to Pay For
Too Many Babies.
Boston (Mass.), April ".--Swamp
ed by births it was organized to pro
mole, the American Birth Insurance
Society has gone into the hands of a
receiver and the Supreme Court has
been asked to decide the disposition
of $7000 on hand. The society start-
ru operations aoout two years ago
and was intended to pay f 150 to $200
upon the birth of a baby In the family
of the policyholders, the idea being
that many families avoided children
because of the expense attendant
upon their coming: Though it secured
much new business the society was
unable to keep up with the births it
hal to pay for, and decided to quit
business while still solvent.
