JOSEPH F. HAAS.
Popular Recorder of Deeds.
Charles E. Mcrrlnm, cunillilnto for
the Kopubllcnn nmyornlty nomlnutlon,
urges tho necessity of Chicago elect
ing n mayor who can command tho
confidence of both the city and tho
state In order that tho city's demand
for homo rtilo may recclvo Junt con
sideration In tho state constitutional
convention. Captain Mcrrlnm pointed
to his record ns a city legislator as u
guaranty that ho will bo ublo to presH
Chicago's claims with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho Issued n state
ment setting forth In some dotnll his
views on tho subject of homo rule.
"A necessary plank In n Chicago
platform Is homo rulo In local affairs,"
Capt. Mcrrlnm said. "Chicago's gov
ernment was mado nway back In 1870,
and slnco then thcro liavo been so
many changes In tho world that tho
old patched up plan Is no longor 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 havo tho power to
mako our own city charter ns wo
want It; to adopt n non-partisan elec
tion system, It tho peoplo wish it; to
say what tho mnchinory of local gov
ernment shall bo, if wo caro to chango
it; to mako whntovcr local rules and
regulations wo wnnt, subject, of
course, to tho general lawn ot tho
stato. It is ridiculous, or would bo It
it wcro not so sorlous, that Chicago,
tho fourth city In tho world, should
bo obliged to run down to tho state
legislature for every llttlo chnngo in
Its machinery or to got nny additional
power necossary to keep up with tho
"Thcso Chicago requests not only
tako up tho tlmo ot tho legislature
unnecessarily, but the lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
Interferes with tho growth of tho city,
with tho business development ot tho
community and with tho dally comfort
ot our people. It Is high tlmo that
Chicago bo given authority to meet
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to havo
full control over ItH public utilities
gns, electric light, street and elevated
railways and telephones if not under
federal regulation. In 1913 I wns In
tho front' ranks of thoso who wcro
lighting for greater control over local
utilities in Chicago, but tho peoplo
woro not fully aroused at that tlmo
and such power an Chicago had was
weakened by tho law thou passed.
"I am suro that -every man or
woman who digs down for an extra
penny on tho ! or puzzles over tho
pccullnr gas bills now knows what
homo rulo means and how important
it is to him or hor personally. Tho
fact Is that Chicago understands these
local questions bettor than tho state
outside, and wo would bo better satis
fied with our own conclusions any
way. "Slnco tho passage ot tho Mueller
law loenl control over utilities has
been understood by all sides in Chi
cago to Include legnl and financial
power to own and operate utilities it
and when the public desires to adopt
such a policy. The purpose- of giving
bucIi authority Is to placo In tho city's
hands tho power to tako whatever
course- regarding public utilities tho
peoplo may deem oxpetllont. Thoro
has been no disagreement on this
point for many yenrs. Ot course, con
stitutional changes nro necessary to
bring this about and should bo so
cured. '"Homo rulo is now moro important
than ever becnuso tho stato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
tho peoplo will soon meet. In that
body the fato of Chicago for tho noxt
generation will bo decided. If wo fall
I to obtain thoro tho powor wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To a very
largo extent tho outcomo will depend
on tho noxt mayor of Chicago. Wo
can couiU, I am suro, on tho generous
co-operation of Gov. Lowden In nn
effort to help our city. If tho mayor
commands tho confidence of tho peo
ple ot Chicago and of tho entire stato
or Illinois, it will -bo possiblo to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor can
present tho clty'H caso clearly and
effectively, and If tho stato trusts him,
Chicago will obtain tho mcasuro of
local government to which wo nro en
titled. Our citizens should rcnllzo tho
situation boforo tho opportunity has
knocked and gono away.
"Tho snmo thing is truo ot tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
year to year. Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorablo. consideration for hor
measures depends largely on tho
mayor, who is properly regarded ns
tho spokesman ot tho community. If
ho commands tho respect and confi
dence of tho stato ho will go fnr; but
If not, tho road is n 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 ton years. Many
a hard Journey havo I mado to Spring
Held with men llko Aid. Rlchort, Lit
tler, McCormick, Kcarns, Kemer, Cap
italn, Flshor, Dollfuss, Sltts, Lippa,
Nance nnd others, only to moot nn
tnvlslblo barrier which kept us back
from necossary Chicago legislation.
"A homo rule plank In a platform
Is of llttlo value unless wo know who
Is back of It. My guaranty Is many
years of practical oxporlonco In tho
city council nnd ut Springflold work
ing for tho measures necessary to tho
growth and development of Chicago."
Democrats nro praising tho good
work nlready dono by Dennis J. Egan,
tho popular Chief Bailiff of tho Munic
ipal Court for ltobcrt M. Swoltzor.
Egan is oim of tho best organizers in
the Democratic party. Ho has n na
tural talent for organization work
and iho splendid lino up nt Swoltzor
headquarter speaks well for his abll
Ity and loyalty to his party.

Chiropractic What It Is.
Chiropractic (Klro-prak-tlk) is tho
Sclcnco ot locating tho causo of dls
easo and tho Art of removing It by
adjusting tho splno, which rolloves
prossuro on tho norvos and allows
naturo's llfospark, or norvo onorgy, to
flow frooly to and from tho brain.
Tho causo ot dlsoaso, as tho Chiro
practor finds it, Is a subluxation ot ono
or moro of tho vortobrao which dee
creaso tho slzo of tho oponlng through
which tho spinal nerves pass, and
implngo or press thorn, hence shut oft
a portion of tho norvo supply to tho
organs or parts, and tho result will bo
dlseaso, dorangod functional activity.
A normal norvo supply to any organ
or part of tho human body gonorates
normal function and maintains health.
In adjusting tho vortobrao to ro
lease tho prossuro, tho Chiropractor
uro3 nnd needs nothing but his hands.
Tho whole object of his work Is com
pleted when this pressure Is removed.
Katuro does tho curing. In somo cases
dally adjustments aro nocossary tor a
tlmo. In othor cases, howovor, throo
adjustments a weok will bring splen
did results. Tho Chiropractor should
bo tho Judge as to tho frequency of

claims provo to bo n harmony with
all tho essential facta concerning tho

it Is truo and valuable and should bo
