JOHN G. SHEDD,
President of Marshall Field & Co.
Charles 1. .Mcrrlum, .camlldute fur
the Republican mayoralty nomination,
urges the necessity of Chicago elect
ing a mayor wha'enn command tho
confidence of both the city and the
stato In order that tho city's demand
for home rule may receive just con
slderation in tho state constitutional
convention. Captain Mcrriam pointed
to his record as a city legislator as a
guaranty that he will bo able to press
Chicago's claims with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho issued a state
ment setting forth in some detail his
views on tho subject of homo rule.
"A necessary plank In a Chicago
platform is homo rulo in local affairs,"
Capt. Morrlam said. "Chicago's gov
ernmont was mado away back in 1870,
and slnco then there have been so
many changes in tho world that tho
old patched up plan is no longer ade
quate. Chicago has outgrown tho law
which fifty years ago was good
enough. What other business in town
Is run on an 1S70 basis?
"Wo ought to have tho power to
make our own city charter ns wo
want it; to adopt a non-partisan elec
tion system, if tho people wish It; to
say what tho machinery of locul gov
ernment shall bo, if we enro to chango
it; to mako whatever local rules und
regulations wo want, subject, of
course, to tho general laws of tho
state. It Is ridiculous, or would bo It
it were not so sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city in the world, should
bo obliged to run down to tho stato
legislature for every little chango in
Its machinery or to get any additional
power necessary to keep up with tho
"These Chicago requests not only
tako up tho tlmo of tho legislature
unnecessarily, but tho lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
interferes with tho growth of tho city,
with tho business development of tho
community and with tho dally comfort
of our people. It Is high tlmo that
Chicago bo given authority to meet
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to have
full control over Its public utllltlos
gas, electric light, street und elevated
railways and telephones If not under
federal regulation. In 1913 1 was In
tho front ranks of thoso who wero
fighting for greater control over local
IK "Ui f !PQErw
utilities In Chicago, but the people
were not fully aroused at that tlmo
and such power ns Chicago had was
weakened by tho law then passed.
"1 am Hiiro that every man or
woman who digs down for an extra
penny on tho 'W or puzzles over tho
peculiar gas bills now knows what
homo rulo means and how Important
It Is to him or her personally. Tho
fact is that Chicago understands these
local questions better than the state
outside, and wo would bo better satis
fied with our own conclusions any
way. "Slnco the passage of tho Mueller
Llnw local control over utilities has
been understood by all sides In Chi
cago to include legal and financial
power to own and operata utilities it
and when tho public desires to adopt
such a policy. Tho purpose of giving
such authority Is to placo in tho city's
hands the power to tako whatever
course regarding public utilities tho
pcoplo may deem oxpodlont.' Thoro
has been no disagreement on this
point for many years. Of courso, con
stitutional chnnges nro necessary to
bring this about and should bo se
cured, "Homo rulo is now moro Important
than over because tho stato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
tho pcoplo will soon meet. In that
body tho fato of Chicago for tho noxt
generation will bo decided. It wo fall
to obtain thoro tho power wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To u very
largo extent tho outcome will depend
on tho noxt mayor of Chicago. Wo
can count, I am suro, on the generous
co-operation of Gov. Lowdcn In an
effort to help our city. If tho mayor
commands tho confidence of tho peo
plo of Chicago and of tho entire stato
of Illinois, it will bo possible to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor can
present tho city's case clearly and
effectively, nnd If tho stato truBts him,
Chicago will obtain tho measuro of
local government to which wo nro en
titled. Our citizens should rcallzo tho
situation beforo tho opportunity has
knocked and gone away.
"Tho same thing Is true of tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
year to year. Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorablo consideration for her
inoasuros depends largely on tho
mayor, who Is proporly regarded as
tho spokesman of the community. If
ho commands tho respect and confl-
