THE NERVE OF ALDERMAN GRIMM.
NOBODY Ttppti in? aadtr nf Illation to who i hotdiaf up
toxical- reform in this city. The prrnnit dUfnetfol syeteni
of private stands, hotel Kraft, ill-rori'litioiied oabl and oxtor
iionalo fares continues because one Alderman stupidly and ntnMiornly
hold out against the farts and njrniiiot the plnin interest of the pnUiO.
Tsxicab company lawyer and liotel men who olin to their craft
have driven into the hpad of this man. who is Chairman of the Alder
manic Committee on Taxicab, tlio idea that private stands and exor
bitant rates must lie. presened at all coats. The brain of Alderman
Grimm is filled to bursting with this one notion. Lfo consideration
of public good can squeeze in.
Instead of passing an ordinance which would throw the streets of
the city open to the competition of cheap, rapidly multiplying taxicahs
under careful city regulation, Alderman tirimm would let the hotet?
snd taxicab companies continue to monopolize the host part of the
service with a limited number of cab at rates too hjgk for any save
The ordinance which the Mayor's Taxicab Commission has tcc- j
emmended to the Aldermen would permit two persons to rido two
miles in a taxicab for 91.00.
Alderman Grimm would have them pay $1.40.
Worse than his impudent advocacy of higher rates, however, is
his braxen indorsement of private stands. For this is the crux of
taiicab reform in New York.
The Evening World has repeatedly shown thBt hotels and restau- i
rante now unlawfully rent to the big taxiciib companies street privi
leges which really belong to tho city. In return for these privileges
the hotel men collect $500,000 annually from the taxicab companies.
The taxicab companies collect the $.r00,000 from the pockets of'
Until the city has abolished these private stands, until it luis es
tablished public stands in the principal squares and streets, until til ,
licensed taxicabs arc given equal privileges and held rigidly to the j
same standards, until the taxicab service is thrown open to the who!
some influence of fair competition, we shall never have in New York i
the cheap, convenient service enjoyed by other civilized capitals.
A taxicab ordinance embodying these reforms so long urged by
The Evening World is now in the hands of the Aldermen. Only the
shameless obstinacy of one Alderman from an out of tho way corner
of Brooklyn keeps that ordinanco buried and denies this greut city
ita fair chance to develop a cheap, safe cab service.
After fifteen months of dawdling on the part of his Taxicah 1
Committee, Alderman Grimm hain't the nerve to disappoint a few
taxicab magnates and hotel men.
Has he the nerve to disappoint and exasperate the whole waiting

WHEN SCHOOLBOYS STRIKE.
THOUSAND New York schoolboys "struck" against the regu
lations of the Stuyvesant High School, rushed the school
lunchroom, smashed dishes and tipped over the furniture.
Then they climbed on tables and sang "Where's the Chicken Axe:"
as a protest against "staid old songs" like Hymn No. 2(it which form
part of the regular morning exercises. It has been thought best tj
keep the children off the streets of the neighborhood during the
luncheon hour. The boys do not see the need of this. Therefor:
they "strike" and "demonstrate" and smash things.
The same day two hundred school children whose ages ranged
from eight to twelve broke up a grammar school at Cambridge, Ma .
by "striking" for less study and more play. Not only dhl tin y refu.
in attend school, but a procession of one hundred marched to another
reboot houae and held up other children peaceably going to their
lessons. The police were finally called upon to quell the noise ;iin
This sort of thing i not funny. It is sad anil disgraceful, and
should be nipped in the bud. The strike, as a necehsarv and legiti
mate weapon is quite dangerous enough in the hands of adults. !t
has nothing whatever to do with the immature and exuberant Iril
pulses of excited or mischievous children. No boy who has n it
learned to obey authority before he begins to criticise it is likely to
grow into a useful citizen. These school loy strikes are si-rns of dan
gerous laxity and lack of control probably more at home than at
school. From precisely such youthful material are developed our
car rowdies and gangsters.

When your husband tells you that you "have no brains,'
mcmb-r that he means it as a compliment.
Some women can be fooled all of the time and all women can be tooled
some of the time, but the same woman can't be fooled SSI the same man in
the same way more than half of the time.
When a woman marries it Is often a slon that she pr, frrs half a man's

The dullest fate on earth for a man is to be married to a woman who is
so fascinating that he can't even enjoy flirting with other women.
