HOME RULE? BUNK!
Traction Matter So Simple Even
the Estimate Board Can't

"Hunk." says Job 15. Hedges at his
own mention of the question of home
rulo in the traction situation.
Mr. Hedges, receiver for the New
York City Hallways Company, was

ng-Coolldge Woman's Club at the
Marie Antoinette Hotel, 67th Street
and Uroa'dway. His subject was thn
"Traction and health are two of
the departments of which permission
Is eJvch to localities 10 run them,"
Mr. Hodges said. '-According to the
decision of the Supremo Court of the
United States one of those minor
bodies whloh, according to my friend
Mayor Hylon, Is engaged In a con
spiracy this power oan be loaned by
the State, but cannot be finally g.'veu
I am a great believer in home
rule. 1 don't know what It Is. nor
does anybody: I suppose It Is local
pride. Hut certainly, wc of New
York, when we send to California for
man to pass laws, can t be unduly

The matter Is so simple that even
the Hoard of Intimate can't see It."
