Mrs. Ilcrmon D. Uutlor oxpocta to

Hot Springs, Vn.
WILLIAM F. QUINLAN.
Father of Edgewater Talked of for City Treasurer.
Charles E. Merrlatn, candidate for
the Republican mayoralty nomination,
urges the necessity of Chicago elect
ing a mayor who can command the
confidence of both tho city and tho
state in order that the city's demand
for home rule may receive- Just con
sideratlon in tho stato constitutional
convention. Captain Mcrrlam pointed
to his record as a city legislator as a
guaranty that he will bo ublo to press
Chicago's claims with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho issued a stntc
ment sotting forth in somo detail his
viows on tho subject of homo rule.
"A necessary plank in n Chicago
platform Is homo rule In local affairs,"
Capt. Merrlam said. "Chicago's gov
ernment wnB mado away back In 1S70,
and since then thcro have been so
many changes In tho world that tho
old patched up plan Is no longer ade
auate. 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 power to
make our own city charter as wo
want it; to adopt a non-partisan elec
tion system, if tho peoplo wish it; to
say what tho machinery of local gov
ernment Bhall be, if wo caro to chango
it; to mako whatovcr local rules and
regulations wo want, subject, of
course to tho gcnoral laws of tho
state, It is ridiculous, or would bo if
It wore not so sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city In tho world, should
bo obliged to run down to tho stato
logislaturo for every little chango in
its machinery or to got any 'additional
power necessary to keep up with tho
"These Chicago requests not only
tako up tho tlmo of tho logislaturo
unnocessarlly, but tho lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
interferes with tho growth of tho city,
with the business dovolopmont of tho
community and with tho dally comfort
of our people. It is high tlmo that
Chicago bo givon authority to moot
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to havo
full control over Its public utilities
gas, electric light, street and clavatcd
railways and telephones If not undor
foderal regulation. In 1913 I was In
tho front ranks of thoso who wero
fighting for greater control over local
utilities in Chicago, but tho peoplo
wero not fully aroused at that tlmo
and such power as Chicago had was
weakened by tho law then passed,
"I am suro that every man or
woman who digs down for an extra
penny on tho '1 or puzzles over tho
peculiar gas bills now knows what
homo rule means and how Important
it !h to him or lior personally. Tho
fact is that Chicago understands these
local questions better than tho state
outside, and wo would bo better satis
fied with our own conclusions any
way. "Sinco tho passage of tho Muollor
law locnl control over utilities has
been understood by all sides In Chi
cago to lncludo legal and financial
power to own and opcrato utilities It
and when tho public desires to adopt
such n policy. Tho purposo of giving
such authority In to placo In tho city's
hands tho power to tako whatever
courso regarding public utilities tho
peoplo may deem expedient. Thcro
has been no disagreement on this
point for many years. Of courso, con
stitutional changes nro necessary to
bring this about and should bo so
cured. "Homo rulo Is now mora Important
than ever becauso tho stato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
tho peoplo 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 be closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To a very
largo extent tho outcome will depend
on tho noxt mayor of Chicago. Wo
can count, I am sure, on tho generous
cooperation of Gov. Iowdon In nn
effort to help our city. If tho mayor
commnnds tho confidences of tho peo
plo of Chicago and of tho cntlro stato
of Illinois, It will bo poBslblo to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor can
present tho city's enso clearly and
effectively, and if tho state trusts him,
Chicago will obtain tho mcasuro of
local goornmcnt to which wo nro en
titled. Our cltlzons should realize tho
situation boforo tho opportunity has
knocked and gone away.
"Tho samo thing Is truo of tho logls-
'latlon which Chicago requires from
year to year. Chicago's ability to ob
tain fnvorablo consideration for her
measures doponds largely on tho
mayor, who Is properly regarded as
tho spokesman of tho community. It
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 hardor for
Chicago legislation at Springfield than
I havo during tho last ton years. Many
a hard Journey have I mado to Spring
field with men like Aid. Itlchort, Lit
tler, McCormlck, Kcarns, Kerner, Cap
ttaln, Fisher, Hoilfuss, Sitts, Lipps,
Nnnco and others, only to moot an
invisible barrier which kopt us back
from nocossary Chicago legislation.
"A homo rulo plank In a platform
Is of little valuo unless wo know who
Ib bnck of It. My guaranty Is many
yonrs of practical cxporionco In tho
city council and at Sprlngflold work
ing for tho mensurcs nocossary to tho
growth and dovolopmont of Chicago."

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tik) Is tho
Sclonco of locating tho cause of dis-
easo and tho Art of romovlng it by
adjusting tho splno, which relieves
prossuro on tho norvos and allows
naturo's Ufa-spark, or norvo energy, to
flow frcoly to and from tho brain.
Tho causo of dlsoaso, as the Chiro
practor finds it, is a subluxation ot ono
or moro of tho vertobrao which doo
creaso tho slzo of tho opening through
which tho spinal nerves pass, and
impingo or press them, honco shut off
a portion ot tho norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho result will bo
disease, deranged functional activity.
A normal norvo supply to any organ
or part of tho human body gonerates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vertobrao to re
lease tho pressure, tho Chiropractor
uses and neods nothing but his hands,
Tho wholo objoct of his work Is com
pleted whon this pressure) Is removed.
Nature does tho curing. In soma cases
daily adjustments aro necessary for a
tlmo. In other cases, however, threo
adjustments a week will bring splen
did results. Tho Chiropractor should
bo tho Judgo as to the frcquoncy ot
"No matter how strango, unusual,
or even opposed to established cus
tom or boliof an idea may bo, It Its
claims provo to bo in harmony with
all tho essential facts concerning tho
subject to which tho idoa is related,
it is truo and valuable and should bo
accepted." Investigate and intorvlow
