VAN DUREN AND LA SALLE
Charles K. Merrlam, candidate for
the Kepubllcnn mayoralty nomination,
urges the necessity of Chicago elect
ing a mayor who can command tho
confidence of both the city and the
state In order that tho city's demand
for homo rule may recelvo Just con
sideration In tlio stato constitutional
convention. Captain Mcrrlnm pointed
to his record as a city legislator as a
guaranty that ho w 111 be ablo to press
Chicago's claims with expectation of
n friendly hearing. Ho Issued a state
ment setting forth In somo detail his
views on tho subject of homo rule.
"A necessary plank In a Chicago
platform Is homo rule In local affairs,"
Capt. Merrlam said. "Chicago's gov
ernment was made nwny back In 1870,
and slnco then thero have- boon 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 othor business In town
Is run on an 1ST0 basis?
"Wo ought to hnvo tho power to
mako our own city charter as wo
want It; to adopt a non-partisan oloc
tlon system, If tho people wish It; to
say what tho machinery of local gov
ernment shall bo, If wo caro to change
It; to mako whatever local rules and
regulations wo want, subject, of
courso, to tho gcnoral laws of the
stato. It Is ridiculous, or would bo If
It were not so sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city In tho world, should
bo obliged to run down to tho stato
loglslaturo for ovory llttlo change In
Its machinery or to get any additional
powor necessary to keep up with tho
"These Chicago requests not only
take up tho time of tho legislature
unnecessarily, but tho lack of local
authority to 'deal with local affairs
Interferes with tho growth of tho city,
with the business development of tho
community and with tho dally comfort
of our people. It is high time that
Chicago bo given authority to meet
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to havo
full cqntrol over Its public utilities
gas, electric light, street and elevated
railways and telephones If not under
federal regulation. In 1013 I was In
tho front ranks of thoso who wero
fighting for greater control over local
utilities In Chicago, but tho pcoplo
wero not fully aroused at that tlmo
and such powor 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 'W or puzzles over tho
peculiar gas bills now knows what
homo rule means and how Important
It Is to him or hor personally. Tho
fact is that Chicago understands thoso
local questions bottor than tho stato
outside, and wo would bo bettor satis
fied with our own conclusions any
way. "Slnco tho passago of tho Mueller
law loral contjol over utilities has
been understood by all sides In Chi
cago to Include legal and financial
power to own and operato utilities It
and when tho public desires to adopt
such a policy. Tho purpose of giving
such authority Is to place in tho city's
hands tho power to tnko whatovor
courso rcgai ding public utilities tho
pcoplo may doom expedient. Thero
has been no disagreement on this
point for many years. Of courso, con
stitutional changes aro necessary to
bring tills about and should bo se
emed. "Homo rulo Is now more important
than over hocauso tho stato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
the people will soon moot. In thnt
body tho fato of Chicago for tho next
generation will bo decided. If wo fail
to obtain thero tho powor wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably anotber fifty years. To a very
largo extent tho outcomo will depond
on tho next mayor of Chicago. Wo
can count, I nmsuro, on tho generous
co-oporntlon of Gov. Lowden In an
effort to help our city. If tho mayor
commands tho confldenco of tho pco
plo of Chicago and of tho cntlro stato
of Illinois, it will bo possible to obtain
what tho city noeds. If tho mayor can
present tho city's caso clearly nnd
effectively, nnd if tho stato trusts him,
Chicago will obtain tho mcasuro of
local government to which wo aro en
titled. Our citizens should rcallzo tho
situation beforo tho opportunity lias
knocked and gono nwny.
"Tho snmo thing is truo of tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
year to year, Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorahlo consideration for hor
measures doponds largely on tho
mayor, who is proporly regarded as
the spokesman of tho community. If
ho commands tho respect nnd confl
denco of tho stnto ho will go far; but
if not, tho road is a rocky ono. I
know this from porsonnl experience,
for no mnn has fought hardor for
Chicago legislation nt Springfield than
I have during tho last ton yoars. Many
a hard Journey have I mado to Spring
field with men liko Aid. lUchort, Lit
tler, McCormlck, Kenrns, Kornor, Cap
ltain, Fisher, Dcllfuss, Sltts, Lipps,
Nnnco nnd others, only to moot nn
Invisible barrior which kopt us back
from necessary Chicago legislation.
"A homo rulo plank In n platform
Is of llttlo valuo unless wo know who
Is back of It. My guaranty is many
years of practical exporlonco In tho
city council and at Sprlngfiold work
ing for tho measures nocossary to tho
growth and development of Chicago."

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tik) is tho

flow freely to and from tho brain.
Tho causa of disease, as tho Chiro
practor finds it, is a subluxation of ono
or moro of tho vortobrao which doe
crease tho size of tho oponlng through
which tho spinal norvos pass, and
impingo or press them, honco shut off
a portion of the norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho result will bo
dlscaso, deranged functional activity.
A normal norvo supply to any organ
or part of tho human body generates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vortobrao to re
lease tho pressure, tho Chiropractor
uses and needs nothing but his hands.
Tho wholo object of his work is com
pleted when this prossuro is removed.

daily adjustments aro noccssary for a
