cvrus h. Mccormick,
Who Has Retired from the Presidency of the international Harvester Co.
Charles E. Merrlam, candidate (or
the Republican mayoralty nomination,
urges tho necessity of Chicago elect
ing a mayor who can command tho
confidonco of both tho city and tho
state In order that tho city's demand
for homo rulo may recelvo Just con
slderatlon In tho state constitutional
convention. Captain Merrlam pointed
to bis record as a city legislator bb a
guaranty that ho will bo ablo to press
Chicago's claims with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho Issued n state
mont setting forth In somo detail his
vlowa on tho subject of homo rulo.
"A nocessary plank In a Chicago
platform Is homo rulo In local affairs,"
Capt. Merrlam said. "Chicago's gov
ernment wob mado nway back In 1870,
and since then thoro havo boon so
many changes in the world that the
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 1870 basis?
"Wo ought to havo tho powor to
mako our own city charter as wo
want it; to adopt a non-partisan elec
tion system, if tho pcoplo wish It; to
sny what tho machinery of local gov
ornraont shall bo, If wo care to change
It; to mako whatever local rulos and
regulations wo want, subject, of
course, to tho gcncrnl laws of tho
tate. It is ridiculous, or would bo If
It wero not so sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city In the wdrld, should
bo obliged to run down to tho state
loglslaturo for ovory llttlo ichnngo in
its machinery or to get any additional
power necossary to koop up with tho
"Thooo Chicago roquosts not only
tako up tho timo of the loglslaturo
unnecessarily, but tho lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
tnterfores with tho growth of tho city,
.with tho business development of tho
community and with tho dnlly comfort
of our neoDle. It is high timo that
Chicago bo glvon authority to moot
tho modorn situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to havo
Jull control over its public utllltlos
gas, electric light, streot and elevated
railways and telephones If not undor
fodoral regulation. In 1913 I wan in
tho front ranks of those who woro
fighting for greater control over local
utilities In Chicago, but tho pcoplo
woro not fully nrousod at that timo
and such powor ns Chicago had was
weakened by tho law thon passod.
"I am sure that ovory man or
woman who digs down for an extra
penny on tho 'V or puzzles over tho
nocullar gas bills now knows what
homo rulo means and how Important
it Is to him or hor personally. Tho
fact is that Chicago understands tlioao
local questions bettor than tho state
outside, and wo would bo bettor satis
lied with our own conclusions any
way. "Slnco tho passage of tho Mueller
law local control over utilities has
been understood by all sides In Chi
cago to Include legal and financial
power to own and operate utilities if
and when tho public desires to adopt
such a policy. Tho purposo of giving
such authority Is to placo in tho city's
hands tho power to toko whatever
course regarding public utilities tho
people may doom expedient. Thoro
has been no disngrcomont on this
point for many years. Of course, con
stitutional changes nro necessary to
bring this about and should bo se
cured. "Homo rulo Is now moro Important
than ovor bocnuso tho stato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
tho pcoplo will soon meet. In that
body tho foto of Chicago for tho noxt
generation will bo decided. If wo fall
to obtain thoro tho power wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To a very
largo oxtont tho outcomo will depend
on tho noxt mayor of Chicago. Wo
can count, I am cure, on tho generous
cooporntion of Gov. Lowden In an
effort to holp our city. If tho mayor
commands tho confidence of tho pco
plo of Chicago and of tho ontlro stato
of Illinois, It will bo posslblo to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor can
present tho city's caso clearly and
effectively, and If tho stoto trusts him,
Chicago will obtain tho measuro of
local govornment to which we nro en
titled. Our cltlzons should realize tho
situation boforo tho opportunity has
r nocked and gono away,
"Tho tamo thine Is trtio of tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
rear to year. Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorable consideration for hor
measures doponds largely on tho
mayor, who Is properly regarded na
tho spokesman of tho community. If
ho commands tho respect and confi
dence of tho stato ho will go far; but
if not, tho road is a rocky ono. I
know this from personal experience,
for no man has fought harder for
Chicago legislation at Springfield than
I havo during tho last ten years. Many
a hard journoy hnvo I mado to Spring
field with men llko Aid. Rlchort, Lit
tlor, McCormlck, Koarns, Kornor, Cap
ttaln, Fisher, Boiltuss, Sttts, LIpps,
Knnco and othors, only to moot an
Invlsiblo barrier which kept us back
from nocessary Chicago legislation.
"A homo rulo plnnk In n platform
Is of llttlo valuo unless wo know who
Is back of it. My guaranty is many
yoars of practical oxporlonco In tho
city council and at Sprlngflold work
ing for tho measures necossary to tho
growth and dovolopment of Chicago."

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tik) is tho
Sclcnco of locating tho causo of dls
oaoo and tho Art of romovlng it by
adjusting tho spino, which rolioves
prossuro on tho norvos and allows
naturo's ltfo-spark, or norvo energy, to
flow freoly to and from tho brain.
Tho causo of diseaso, as tho Chiro
practor finds it, is a subluxation of ono
or moro of tho vcri;cbrao which doo
croaso tho bIzo of tho oponlng through
which tho spinal norvos pass, and
implngo or press thorn, honco shut off
a portion of tho norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho rosult will bo
dlsoaso, dorangod functional activity.
A normal nervo supply to any organ
or part of tho human body genorates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vertobrao to re
loaso tho pressure, tho Chiropractor
uses and neods nothing but his hands.
Tho wholo object of his work is com
pleted when this prossuro is removed.
Naturo does the curing. In somo cases
dally adjustments aro nocessary for a
timo. In other cases, howovor. throo
adjustments a wook will bring splen
did results. Tho Chiropractor should
bo tho Judgo as to the frequency of
"No matter how strango, unusual,
or oven opposed to established cus
tom or bellof nn idea may bo, it its
claims provo to bo In harmony with
all tho essential facts concerning tho
subject to which tho Idea is rolatcd,
It is truo and valunblo and should ho
accepted." Investigate and intorvlow
