B. E. SUNNY.
Popular and Respected President of the Chicago
Chnrles E. Mcrrlam, candidate for
the Republican mnjornlty nomination,
urges the necessity of Chicago elect
ing n mayor who can command the
confidence of both the city and tho
state in order that the city's demand
for homo rule may rcccivo Just con
sideration in tho state constitutional
convention. Captnln Mcrriam pointed
to his record ns a city legislator as a
guaranty that he will bo ablo to press
Chicago's claims with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho Issued a state
ment setting forth in some detnll his
views on tho subject of homo rulo.
"A necessary plank In a Chicago
platform is home rule In local affnlrB,"
Capt. Mcrriam said. "Chicago's gov
ernment was made away back in 1370,
and since then thero have been so
many changes In the world that tho
old patched up plan Is no longer ade
quate. Chicago has outgrown tho law

which fifty years ago wus good
enough. What other business in town
is run on nn 1S70 basts?
"Wo ought to havo tho powor to
make our own city churtor ns wo
want it; to ndopt n non-pnrtlsan elec
tion system, If tho pcoplo wish it; to
say what tho machlnory of local gov
ernment shall bo, If wo caro to chango
It; to mako whatever local rules and
regulations wo want, subject, of
course, to tho general laws of tho
stato. It is ridiculous, or would bo it
it woro not bo sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city in tho world, should
bo obliged to run down to tho stnto
loglslaturo for every little chango in
its machinery or to get any uddlttonal
powor necessary to keep up with tho
"These Chicago requests not only
tako up tho tlmo of tho loglslaturo
unnecessarily, but tho lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
interfores with tho growth of tho city,
with the business development of the
community and with tho dally comfort
of our people. It is high timo that
Chicago bo given authority to meet
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to havo
full control over its public utilities
gas, electric light, street and elevated
railways and telephones if not under
federal regulation. In 1913 I was in
tho front ranks of thoso who wcro
lighting for greater control over local
utilities in Chicago, but tho pcoplo
wcro not fully aroused nt that tlmo
and such power ns Chicago had was
weakened by tho law tlion passed.
"I am sure 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 rulo means and how Important
it is to him or her personally. Tho
fact is that Chicago understands thoso
local questions better than tho stato
outside, and wo would bo bettor satis
fied with our own conclusions nny
way. "Since tho pnssngo of tho Mueller
law local control over utilities has
been understood by all sides in Chi
cago to includo legal and financial
power to own' and opcrnto utilities it
and when tho public desires to ndopt
kucIi n policy. Tho purposo of giving
such authority is to placo in tho city's
hands tho powor to tnko whntovcr
courso regarding public utilities tho
pcoplo may deem oxpedlont. Thero
has been no disagreement on this
point for many years. Of courso, con
stitutional changes aro 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 moot. In that
body tho fato of Chicago for tho noxt
generation will bo decided. It wo fail
to obtain thoro tho powor wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To n very
largo extent tho outcomo will depend
on tho noxt mayor of Chicago. Wo
can count, I am suro, on tho gonorous
cooporatlon of Gov. Lowdon In nn
effort to holp our city. If tho mayor
commands tho confidenco of tho peo
ple of Chicago and of tho entlro stato
of Illinois, it will bo possibln to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor con
prcsont tho city's caso clearly and
effectively, nnd If tho stato trusts him,
Chicago will obtain tlio mensuro of
local government to which wo aro en
titled. Our citizens should reallzo tho
situation beforo tho opportunity has
knocked and gono away.
'.'Tho samo thing Is truo of tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
year to yonr. Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorablo consideration for her
measures depends largoly on tho
mayor, who Is properly rogarded as
tho spokesman of tho community. It
ho commands tho respect and confi
denco of tho stato ho will go far; but
if not, tho road Is n rocky ono. 1

a portion of tho norvo supply to tho

A normal norvo supply to any organ
or part of tho human body genorates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vortobrao to re
