f WHIPSAWING THE FARE BILL
WHIPSAW differs from an ordi
nary saw in flint it cuts both
V rb ways A Chinese saw cuts when
it is pulled toward you An or
dinary carpenters saw cuts when
it is pushed away The Assem
1 bly and Senate Committees on
Railroads have now completed
their whipsawing of the Cone
QD6 E6 Island FiveCent Fare bill
By a vote of five to two the
Senate Committee on Railroads
refuses to pass this bill which
the Assembly Committee on Railroads unanimously reported
Maybe If the Assembly Committee had not already known what
the Senate Committee would do the bill would not have passed the
Assembly Maybe if the B R T had not known what the Senate
Commitee would do it would have made more of a fight in the
Assembly
In either event a whipsaw may saw wood but it pulls the wool
over nobodys eyes
The Coney Island FiveCent Fare bill which has for years been
advocated by The Evening World has been annually introduced in the
Assembly by Mr Wagner who is honest sincere and able in his efforts
to pass it
Last year this bill was killed In the Senate by the votes of New
York Senators repenting tenementhouse districts They heard from
their constituents last fall and this year they both voted and talked
In favor of it To deprive Mr Wagner of the personal credit for the
bills passage by the Assembly the Republican majority draughted their
own FiveCent Fare bill and put it through thereby enabling the Re
publican Assemblymen from Greater New York to tell their constituents
next fall that they had done everything they could to secure the Coney
Island fivecent fare

The Senate Committee on Railroads has only two New York City
members Both of these voted for the bill and none of the others did
That enables all the Senators and Assemblymen from New York I
City both Democratic and Republican to go before their constituents
t next fall and pose as the real true friends of the people
This will deceive nobody
Any bill which affects only New York and which all the New York
Senators and Assemblymen are honestly in favor of stands a pretty
tj i good chance of passing both houses of the Legislature
The representation from Greater New York is twofifths of the
whole Legislature Its members can easily pass any local bill they want
by refusing to vote for the local bills other members want unless they
get theirs
This Is not the end of the Coney Island FiveCent Fare bill The
Evening World will keep on advocating it Mr Wagner or some other
member in case he decides not to return next year will introduce it
R Some day there will be a Legislature which really represents the popular
will and that day will come all the sooner from the exposure of the I
tricks by which meritorious legislation like this is prevented

The Showing Off by Parents of Their Cute Little Darlings Is
I a Dangerous Undertaking as Mr and Mrs Jarr Have Learned
By Roy L McCardell
I
Jt Jf K and afro Got of Brooklyn will be her this
iVl evening you know said Mr Jarr I
on I know It very well wild Mrs Jarr I
dont sea why those people mslirt on calling it Just upsets
1 everything Its easy n 1Ug11 for them thouGh they have
no children
k But my dear you Insisted that they should come to I
see IM when we mot them at the theatre the other night
r said Mr Jarr You yourself named this evening and I
b I4iq i wouldnt tk no for an answer i
t
< Well It wasnt because I wanted them said Mrs
y > Jarr You are always talking about what n good friend
c Mr Got Is to you and that he would lend you money and
that why I was so nice to them To my mind the man
ova MsCocay looks like a foolf
grin I said hed lend me money replied Mr Jarr with a I
Why dont you borrow some thenr asked Mr Jarr Goodness knows Ive
plenty of us for nil I can get Oh well let them como she added as If Mr
Jarr was coaxing her to permit it let tihem come Ill have to Ret out the new
dishes and that girl we have now is Just aching to break them
Mr Jarr made no reply knowing the coming of company always throws Rood
well Into a peevish and exasperated state However when the Cotes arrived
Mrs Jarr was all smiles and was so glad to see them
I thought you intended Khmc the children an early dinner sa they could KO
to bed und not be a bother queried Mr Jarr when he saw the chlldrene choirs
iro up to the table j
You mind your business and let me attend to mv own affals1 sail Mrs
Jarr In a tense whisper Mr and Mrs note came especially to see the children
They have none of their own you know
At the dinner table both Mr and Mrs Gate paid particular attention to little
VIIlle and Emma Jarr ns all people do who are childless not caring how they
I stir up the Demon ShowlnirOfr
Being told how pretty they were and how bnrit they ware stirred up both
I youngsters to outdo all former efforts aa Infant pests Little Willlo said a whole
lot of bright things and also said and did a whole lot that were not at all bright
Including his latest accomplishment of spitting through hia teeth
Little fimmn put her hands in the butttr and rubbed It in her hair and cried
I
dolorously for more dessert hen there was no more and Joined with Willie In
a vigorous and screaming protaat for ooffae something neither was ever eniiltted
to hale
The Intercession of Mr and Mr Got eared them from condign punishment
I and then all withdrew to the parlor where Willie nonstrated to his own
satisfaction the teats he had observed at the clrous such as ground and lofty
tumbling which Included a bumped and bleeding nose results of which wen
I apparent on Mr Gotes white waistcoat
Little Emma the while climbed over Mrs Gote and transferred all portable
articles of Jewelry that lady po sessed to herMIt
These Juvenile efforts at entertaining being Interspersed with threat by their
parents and revnonitranoes acalmt such a thing an behalf of the little dear by
the guests
After Willie had dropped a large sired castIron locomotive on Mr Got s pat
I corn that gentleman heartily seconded the suggestion that the children sing one
of their school songs This both children flatly refused to do and when In con
sequence Mr Jarr threatened severest corporal punishment in tragic whispers
as soon as Mr and Mrs Gote go Mr and Mrs Gate commenced to stir un
easily as It to Indicate far lie It from them to delay matters
i Finally Mrs Jarr yanked the children from the room and ordered them to
bed In two minutes they reappeared little Emma wearing Mrs Ootes bonnet
and hospitably remarking Go on home I dont like oo and little Willie wear
Ing Mr Gotes Ilk hat In which before he could be stopped he proceeded to
stand on his head
At this point Mrs Oote pleaded a severe and probably truthful headache and
aid she MfST go
When they had departed Mr Jarr said coldly Now get me the ntrapl
But Mrs Jair declared she wasnt going to have the children punished for
the sake of two old prigs from Brooklyn
On the way home the Ootei resolved that It Providence m Its wisdom had
decreed they should be childless perhaps Providence knew brat
