Wh> Our Aldermen
Should Never Fail to Read
Electric Railway Service
In (he last number of Electric Railway
Service, one of which we ‘'took," the com
pany tells us of the demands that have
been made upon it by the growth of the
city and of business.
It tells u.~- in this manner:
“In 1915 the one-fare zone car* oper
ated a total of 83,6%,"52 miles as against
82,9 b 1,398 in the year before. This was
an increase of more than a million miles.
“The jump in 1916, due to the marked
development of Detroit, was six times
y renter! In 1916. the passenger cars ran
the wonderful total of 39,541.216 miles—
the increase over 1915 being 6,004,19-1
miles.
“The present year ot 191 < continued to
produce a progressive business condition
and we kept pace, as you will note. Dur
ing the first nine months of 1916 th* c*»:
miles totaled 28,781,273, and tor .v - me
period of this year, January to the < nd
of September, the mileage reached th
huge sum of 32,807,253, an increase of
4,025,980. That increase was at the rate
of 447,331 car miles a month, so that had
that rate l>een maintained thruout the
year the twelve months’ gain would have
been 5,367,972!"
We are given the figures as propagan
da leading up to something the company
wants —more skip stops or higher faies
—or something, the exact nature of
which we are left to guess.
Whatever it is will dawn upon us with
much force sooner or later, and the com
pany will get it, so we won’t worry about
that end of it.
However, the company adds in setting
forth the extent of the extensions it has
made:
“AND THE COMPANY HAS MADE
THESE INCREASES OF ITS OWN
FREE WILL AND ACCORD —WHOLLY
VOLUNTARILY.’*
And repeats in another place:
“AS WE HAVE SAID. THE IN
CREASES WE ARE HERE DIS
CUSSING HAVE BEEN VOLUNTA
RILY MADE.”
And a little farther on:
“WE AGAIN REPEAT THESE IN
CREASES IN THE NUMBER OF ( AR
MILES WERE MADE BY THE COM
PANY WITHOUT ANY SOLICITATION
BY THE PEOPLE OR THEIR REPRE
SENTATIVES. IT WAS PROPER
THEY SHOULD HAVE BEEN MADE.
The Times is not disposed to with
hold from the Detroit United Railway
any of the praise that is due it for the
manner in which it has sought to keep
pace with the growth of the city. That
leaves us free to criticize its faults.
It is evident that the company has
been put to heavy expense in meeting
Detroit's rapid expansion and we com
mend it here for its public spirit in that
connection.
But why, in telling us about it, does it
repeat again and again that it did it of
its own volition.
Does the D. U. R. imagine for a mo
ment that anybody in Detroit would
think that our present common council
FORCED it to make the extensions?
The chances are that there are several
members of that august body who didn't
know th«* extensions had been made unt 1
they read about them in Electric Railway
Service.
We Said We Had Space
For Praise and Here It
Is, For Dodtfe Bros.
The Times, a few Mays asm, commenc
ed the Victor Talking 1 Machine company
in this column for its policy in provid
ing for the dependents of employes taken
by death.
It announced, too, that it had on hand
words of praise for any employer wi s h
like conception of the effect <»f an inter
est in those helping him to make his
product in hastening s he day of a better
understanding between capital and labor
and the arrangement President Wilson
has emphasized As so necessary at this
time.
An employe of Dodge Bros., motor ve
hicle manufacturers of our city, writes:
“Why go to New Jersey for the subject
of your editorial? They have nothing
on this," and inclose s a letter fr«>rn the
Company to its workers, offering the fol
lowing scale of insurance:
R|« months’ complete! trrrn of nervier $
On* yrar’n completed form of nervice 3 ><■
Two year*' Completed term of aem t« •> 4*>n
Three years’ oomplcM form of nervpe ’<<•••
Four Tours' completed term of **-rvio goo
>’lvo jrMis and orer
'This insurance," says the announce*
ment. “is furnished Wy u* at no expense
to you, and does not in any way take
<i»e rlaec of any payment to be made for
you for accidents under the workmen s
[compensation act."
The Times is more than pleased to
kn’ow that such a broad, hunati 3}
obtains in Detroit.

Declarations of war upon these three na-;
‘ions would undoubtedly have etiect
upon their morab allies of Germany, i
Besides, how can we sit at a peace table,
with world-wide democracy our honest
purpose, and help fix the destinies of
people whom we ve merely stabbed in
the back with our money and munitions? ;
How can we honorably claim that this i$
an issue between civilization and bar- j
bar>m. when our national attitude is
that of peace and soft-dealing toward
Lsuch profesional barbarians as the Turks
and Bulgars?
In respect of these three nations, we
are a neutral doing all we can. save
shooting, to put them out of business. It
hath an ugly, a German look.
Compunctions? What!
A voice from Austria! She hasn’t had
any voice of her own for some time, but
now she demand* that the Italian gov
ernment declare whether Venice is or
is not a fortified city.
Austria evidently has compunctions of
conscience about destroying the magnifi
cent “Queen of the Adriatic" and her
priceless art works.
You’ll have to make Austria 'hut up,
Mr. Kaiser. Anybody with compunc
tions in your party is liable to 'tart a
“cracking.”
What Was He?
General Pershing has had to have one
of his -cithers shot for murdering a
French woman.
The people want the whole -tory abou*
that fellow, general. Was he a pro-Ger
man, a pacifist throwing a fit, or just a
war-profiteer?

Over there
BY DR. FRANK CRANE
(Copyright, I<lls, by Frank Crane)
Over tlu'ii* they’re jfointf.a million of
tho.lHfst .im! hi iifhtost. i)v «*r here why
all this cry of Liberty Bonds, food con
servation, and surtax? It means that
the lathers, mothers, brothers and sis
ter- are standing by, t<> feed, clothe and
at rn their soK'iers.
< >ver there they are flirting with death
in airplanes, defying' death in trenches,
flouting' death in the trumpeted charge.
What are you doing over here? I mi
eizing the government? Whining' be
iMiia* you cannot n o your free speech
ta dishearten your country? Complain
ing beenu e you cannot nde your i>et
hobbies?
Over there they have the mon ter of
iini militarism by the throat. Over here
are you talking of a that shall
let that monster escape still strong to
wreak his filthy will?
Over there i- a Niagara of self-sacri
fice. Over here are you seeking to water
your crop of profits by the sneaking
streams of self-indulgence?
Over there is \our son, even now per
haps in an unknown grave. Over here
are yi»u going to encourage the opinion
ated fanatics who can speak only slan
der, and nfo England and America,
who are standing shoulder to shoulder
against the onslaught of the three-htgut
ed were-wolf that is ravaging the earth?
<)ver there the mad mullahs of I‘ru.s
-sianixm are torpedoing peaceful ships,
the assassins of the sea are destroying
ti:t commerce of the world, food and
merchandise for the welfare of the peo
ple are piling up in the bottom of the sea,
‘ spurlos verst nkt.‘’ Over there they are
carrying men away into captivity, muti
lating children, outraging women, reduc
ing cities to rubbish heaps, devastating
field- as by fir* and salt, till prating of
and the mailed fist.
Over here, if we are doing any less
than our supreme best, if we are not
placing at our country’s disposal all our
lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor,
we are recreants to the greatest duty
! destiny ever imposed upon a free people,
l we are silent allies of the lords of hell.
What are you doing—over here?
