THE REBUKE OF PROHIBITION.
Chicago declared against prohibi

quarter of n million votes.

THE COMING LIBERTY LOAN.

And that "yellow streak" engender
ed by our preparations, saved thous
ands of lives of American boys and
millions of lives of their compatriots.
Had wp not mado this vast prepara
tion our boys would bo plowing ahead
through Flanders mud and French for
ests, paying with tholr llfo blood tho
prlco of tho world's freedom. Tho
preparation was made. Tho war Is
over. Our boys for tho most part aro

With tho Secretary of tho Treasury
wo should Issuo our thanks to God
that our preparations mado possible
tholr speedy return. With him wo
should proparo to pay off tho last of
our debts, incurred In amassing tho
war matorlal which has mado posslblo
their safo homecoming.
Tho Victory Liberty Loan, which
will complcto our payments on the
war preparations thnt brought, Ger
many to hor knees so suddonly'lnst
Novembor, will bo floated botweon
April 21 and May 10. Tho Secretary
of tho Treasury hns announced thnt
tho terms offered on tho now loan
will bo such as to make tho govern
ment securities tho "best buy" on tho
market at tho tlmo it is circulated.
Whllo Mr. Glass has not announced
the amount ho would call for, tho boat
Informed public men say that tho
lssuo will bo $5,000,000,000, with tho
right to accept all ovor-subscrlptlons.
And now to consider brlofly why
tho Victory Llborty Lonn has to bo
floated among tho Amorlcan people
In tho first place, tho loan is n
good Investment. Before tho war,
most of us wore not investors. Today
one-fourth of our population aro bond
holders and halt ot us hold sonio sort
of govornmont securities. Wo havo
begun, at loam, to, learn tho thrift
habit that wo may lay up some treas
ures on earth.
In tho second place, this was our
war, a war of tho Amorlcnn people
domocrncy against tyranny. Wo havo
testified fully to our sanction ot this
war by sending 2,000,000 men to tho
battlo front, training l,7f0,000 moro
and getting ready 4,000,000 to go into
training. Wo testified to our Interest
In it when wo subscribed $7,000,000,
000 to tho Fighting Fourth Llborty
Loan and gnvo liberally to our war
Now tho war la over and wo wondor
n bit why wo nro asked for moro mon
ey. Thoro nro still a million of our
fighting men In Franco who must bo
brought homo. There nro thousands ot
our wounded nnd sick In hospitals who
havo yet to bo cared for. Our mer
chant marlno is still building that
America may tako hor placo In tho
world mart. All theso tako funds.
Yet that Is not tho real reason for
the Victory Liberty Lonn. Our gov
ernment had In process of construc
tion, whon Germany capltulatod, a war
maehlno which was planned to anni
hilate tho armies of tho Fatherland
during tho coming summor. Tho al
lied experts bollovrd thnt Germany
would not surrender until she was de
feated, so they planned for that over
whelming dofca during tho coming
mimmor. Gormhny, howover. conclud
ed that sho had enough boforo tho
full forco of our war catapult struck.
Tho Gorman general staff know that
wo wero building that great machlno
Thoy had felt tho first blows at
Chateau Thierry, Bolleau Woods, the
Argonno and St. Mihlol nnd had learn
ed that tho American "mob" Vnew
no dofeat, gave no ground, but wont on
in splto of losses of eight to ono,
Thoy know, too, that tho Amorlcnn
nnd BrltlHh navies had rondored tho
U-boat Impotent with Amorlcan depth
bombs, strung In n barrage twenty
miles wide across tho North Soa.
They saw tho American ships in
an almost ondlosa stream bearing aer
ial nrmadas, flocks of tanks, battery
after battery of rifles, howitzers, and
mortars, gas and high explosive shells
by tho million, rifles and machine
guna with their ammunition and men,
reglmont after regiment until thoro
seemed no end to tho khaki clad
fighters coming out of tho west. So
Tho principal question confronting
tho traction companies of Chicago Is
how long thoy will bo nblo to survlvo
without additional revenues, nnd Pres
ident Leonard A. Busby of tho Chi
cago Surface Lines, In his annual re
port to tho board of operations, indi
cates that tho tlmo will bo compara

Itj shows thnt alio companies foil
short by $230,110 of earning tho G per
cent Inlorest on tho city purchnso
prlco In tho lnst half of tho fiscal yenr
just ended. It shows that In tho 1919
half year operating ratio was 79 per

tho corresponding period a year be

Tho return on, tho cnpltnl account
wns at tho into of 4.75 for tho latest
six months reported, as compared to C
per cont and 0.51 ono nnd two years
previous. Mr. Busby snys It Is "Im
possible to oxaggcrato tho situation"
nnd thnt tho public na well as invest
ors must suffer If lollef Is long delayed.
A big fight Is being mado at Spring
flold for tho passage of tho following
laws affecting Chicago:
Non-pnrtlsan elections for aldermen
Reducing tho number of aldermen
from Bovcnty to fifty.
Increasing tho number ot city
wnrds from thlrty-flvo to fifty, with
ono nlderinnn representing each ward.
Recall for aldermen and mayor.
Eliminating tho offices of city
dork nnd city treasuior from tho
elective olllcea nnd making them ap
pointive by tho council.
The bills, If successfully pushed
through tho stnto legislature, must go
to tho peoplo for ratification on a ref
Tho city manager plan of govern
ment, which wns also submitted to
tho city council, was put In tho dis
card. Only n fow voiced tholr senti
ments in favor of tho city manager
plan, and thoro wero many enemies.
Tho majority of tho aldermen did not
feel thnt tho council bo trusted with
tho selection of n mayor, and others
raised tho objection that tho peoplo
would thereby havo no voice in tho
selection of their executive
The contemplated chnngo In tho
nldorinnnlc systoin wnB first brought
to tho council In n bill providing for
four years Instead of two-yenr terms
for tho city fathers nnd provided for
ono alderman from each of thirty
ftvo words. It lost by a voto ot 32
to 27 nnd was Ihen ninonded to pro
vldo for fifty wards, with an nldor
man from each.
THE CITY ZONING LAW

Tho city council mooting as n com
mittee of tho whole unanimously
voted to recommend tho "zoning" bill,
which had been "hanging llro" In
committees for sovoral years to tho

Tho "zoning" bill, if mado n law,
would pormlt municipalities to estab

attempts liavo been made to Interest

IS NICHOLAS ROMANOFF ALIVE?
Is Nicholas Romanoff, former
Russian c-znr, ullvp or dead? Bernard
Nnuniberg, a New York lnwyer, has
been named by Supremo Court Justice
Benedict In Brooklyn as n commlttco
of ono to find out. Tho Marino Trans
portation Service corporation early In
tho war transported n largo quantity
of Mignr to Russia on the then czar's
order. Before collection wns made
Nicholas was deposed and, according
to generally accepted reports, Blaln.
Mr. Nnuniberg learned that tho cznr
hud 51,000,000 on deposit In tho Na
tional City bank. He obtained a court
Judgment for $117,-ir.O, but upon pro
Honllng It to tho bank wns Informed
tho bank could not pny out any of tho
fund unless Nicholas either was served
with notice or proved dead. Ho then
applied for appointment of n receiver
for the fund. Justice Benedict denied
tho application, telling Mr. Nnuniberg
It would bo necessary first to serve
Nicholas with notice or, after proving him dead,servo notice upon his next of
kin. The next of kin would bo his wife, If she Is nllve; If not, his children
If alive; If not, Michael Romnnoff, his brother, who at lnst accounts wns nllve.
OPPOSED TO LEAGUE OF NATIONS
Re-elected Alderman of the Nineteenth Ward.
The Joint debate at Boston over
tho league of tuitions covenant between
Senator Henry Cnbot Lodgo of Massa
chusetts and President A. Lawrence
Lowell of Harvard unlerslty puts the
former, whoso portrait Is given here
with, In tho limelight as perhaps Its
foremost opponent. Tho debnto was
doubly Important beenuso of tho per
sonality of tho debaters. President
Lowell represents the pure student nnd
theoilst. Ho Is author of n standard
treatise on tho government of England
and other contributions 4o tho sclcnco
of government, which has been his
special subject. He Is one of America's
distinguished scholars and brings to
the consideration of any public ques
tion u formidable body of knowledge.
Senator Lodge, by compnrlspn,
represents the practical and realistic.
He Is himself a historian of note, n
man of high culture and Informed In
telligence. And, In addition, whllo
President Lowell has been btudlng tho sclenco of government, Senator Lodgo
has been practicing It.
ARMY COURT-MARTIAL SYSTEM
Senator Georjto K. Chamberlain of
Oregon hnd a good deal to soy In tho
last session of tho Sixty-fifth congress
in criticism of tho war department and
moro especially of tho alleged Injus
tice of tho nrmy court-mnrtlal sys
tem. Tho hostilities between Senator
Chamberlain and 'Secretary Baker have
not ceased with tho adjournment of
In tho latest encounter Secretary
Baker sent n telegram to Sonntor
Chamberlain lalng the blame for fail
ure to correct tho evil In tho court
martial system upon congress. He de
clared ho had proposed a icmedy a
year ngo, but congress had not acted.
Tho senntor promptly retaliated
with a letter In which ho declared Mr.
Baker's remedy would havo mado the
system "even moro reactionary, If
possible, than it Is now." Ho charged
that Mr. Baker's proposed remedy was
not mado In good faith, Tho senator
then proceeded to clto statements recently mado by Mr. Baker Mnuchly
defending the eouit-miirtlal sjstem against tho attacks by General Ansell and
in congress nnd continued:
"On March 10 you wero blind to nny dellclencles In tho existing system;
lis indeed tho cldeiico abundantly shows you liavo been deaf throughout tho
war to complaints about the Injustice of this system."
