Dlrestor Cooke, of the Department of Public Works, pointed out today that co operation of .American cities Is essential in the effort to regulate public service corporations. He referred to the conference of Mars to be held In Philadelphia In Noembu as the first step In the Intercity action toward regulation of public utilities' cm panles. 'The Importance of tho great confer ence of Mayors of American cities, to be held In this city, November 12 to II, la attested by our correspondence both with city olllclals and with the repre Kentatlves of 'Mb business," " ho said "Acceptances have been received from the Mnors of SO of tho leading cities. The utility corpoiatlons, on the other hanJ, appreciating the Importance of having their side of the questions dis cussed adequately presented, are securing- for us speakers of national reputa tion. "It la both curious and gratifying to ce Philadelphia taking the lend In the discussion of these fundamental civic problems, because as a city we have not had any settled policy as to our own public utilities Our water works are both municipally owned and operated: the gns work' are municipally owned and privately operated; tne electric plant Is both privately owned and privately op erated, while the existing arrangements with the street car company calls for a sharing of profits. "The drift In recent years has been toward Stato regulation. Especially In the East the public, service corporations have, within the last few years worked In favor of State regulation. In so doing they apparently havo been largely In fluenced bv a desire to avoid the Incon sistencies Inherent in local regulation. In the far West there ore reasons to be Hevo that In many States they are emerging from a period of unqualified State regulation. In some Western lo calities there Is a disposition toward State regulation, tempered by home rule, and In others to a type of home ruto that leads ultimately to municipal ownership. Even the Wrongest advocates of State regulation uee in the principle crave dangers. Ml: ??

This was the first time that the management has set aside a special day for women, and the Innovation proed popular. By chang ing Children's Day from Tuesday to Monday, as was done this year, the side show men and fakirs genernlly got thm seHes established early so as to gain the patronage of the young visitors, and, as a consequence, all the shows and ehlblt!ons had an eail stait and were under way today. Those who know fair work leullze that tho ihlldren's money vlrtualU pays the expenses of the wliolo week for the sideshow folks, and helps out the expenses of the refreshment and other stands to u considerable extent. A larg- delegation of suffragists came here to watch the meetings of the thrc State political conentionl which are being held In Trenton tod.ty. und to urge that the women's suffrage resolution plank "f the Inst conventions ho re- adopted; but before tho politicians were through with their work many of th suffragists had found their way to the fair grounds. That New Jersey was ready to give the alcctorate of the State the privilege of at least voting on the mat ter was the talk on tho grounds The resolution giving women the ballot was I assed by the last Legislature. It must be passed again next winter and then It will go to a vote of the electorate be fore the proposition can be adopted As a recognition to the large number of women pret-ent.
