Throwing Gates Open -on Both
Sides of Cross Streets Would Help
Some, but New Order Prohibits This
at Two of Most Prominent Transfer
While the street railway company
contends that its conductors have or
ders to throw open the gates of the
cars practically whenever the car
comes to a full stop and passengers
wish' to alight, observation will con
vince anvone that this is not done as
a Tuje. I it were, a cause of much
fault-finding with the gate system
would be eliminated.
On the contrary, at transfer points
particularly, when passengers have the
chance to" make close connections,
they are frequently held by the gates
because there is a caT ahead. The
gates should be open at both sides of
the streets at transfer points, surely
but a "notice has been posted instruct
ing conductors on east-bound Henne
pin .cars to stop onlv on the further
side of Fifth and Third streets. This
means that passengers must ride across

To the Editor of The Journal:
As you request the public to express
their opinion on the question of gates on
streetcars, will say by all means retain
the gates. W have, without doubt, the
finest streetcar service of any city in the
United States, and the management of
this great system is at all times in
touch with the public welfare and safe
ty. I was in the city of Montreal, Can
ada, for a time two years ago, and while
riding on the platform of a car saw a
man attempt to board a swiftly-moving
car, and in some manner miss his hold
and roll under the trucks and- nearly
lose his life.
Their cars age entered in the center
instead of the rear, but the thought
struck me at the time that such an ac
cident could not have happened in Minne
apolis. Th only argument against the
gates is the matter of time, and goodness
knows we. are going" thru the short span
of life at a. very rapid gait, and there is
no need of removing the gates yi order.to
give surgeons an opportunity to remove
a mangled limb, or an undertaker the job
of burying us, as his turn comes soon
enough. So, as one of many, say, leave
the gates alone. John S. Calder,

many people on the slightest provocation,

vice of, some lawyer, who is willing- to
take the case on a percentage, and such
cases are frequently decided against the
company, because some juror will argue
that the company is rich and ought to be
made tojpay on general principles.
There are two sides to this question.

pursue in such matters. I believe the

for all concerned and. take off the gates.

NEED OF IMPROVEMENT.
Good city government and means to

addressed the gathering was Mayor D.

the essentials of good government.
"The reason the city problem has
grown till it has outstripped the state

Jones, "is that in the city you gather

some necessary evils go with any great

Auditor Fabrlck's office, was examined by re
quest of the county auditor' himself, after the
Northern Trust company had announced its de

show -cause why his bond should not be can

held that he had no jurisdiction In the matter.
A few days later Fabrick made a written re
that his office be investigated, and the
commissioners ordered the public examiner to
make an examination.
Should the examiner, in his report, find
that the office has been conducted in a satis

When we look back to childhood and
think of what mother advised, we feel
pretty certain that she'advised what was
right from her own experience. She
inherited later in her instinct of mother
hood a knowledge of childish ailments and
a certain class of remedies that she knew
well and their effects. Experience after
all is the best teacher. Most mothers
know as well as doctors, and often better,

weather to manifest themselves. Winter Eczema sleeps in the system through
the long hot months, and gives no si gn of its presence but at the coming oj
Winter the trouble asserts itself and it becomes one of the most painful and
distressing of all skin diseases. Th blood is filled with poisonous acids
which seem to be excited by the cold and as these are thrown off through
the pores and glands, the skin cracks and bleeds, the flesh becomes h and
feverish and the itching intense. Th natural oils which keep the skin soft
and pliant are dried up by the cold, bleak winds, causing it to become hard
and dry, giving it that shiny, leathery appearance, characteristic of the disease.
The head, face, hands and feet are the usual points of attack, though other
parts of the body may be affected. S painful and distressing is the trouble
that the sufferer constantly "doctors" and treats it trying to get relief.
Soothing washes, medicated ointments and salves are used, but aside from
giving temporary relief they do no good. The cause is poisonous acids in
the blood, and these must be removed before a cure can be effected. The only
cure for Winter Eczema is S. S. S. the greatest of alt bipod purifiers. It
