They aro maintained exclusively (or the rich at the expense of the poor. They are used exclusively by per sons owning automobllea and are kept up by the taxes of people who do not live upon them. When people, of moderate means were enabled to own and enjoy the driving of horses, the boulevards wora the delight of the common people. It Is different now. People who live upon streets that are not boulevards can only have them Improved by putting their bands in their pockets and paying for the improvements themselves. All property upon streets not boule varded Is subject to the levy of spe cial assessments for the Improvement and maintenance of such thorough fares. Property fronting on boulevards Is not subject to special assessment. The Improvement of boulevards and the maintenance of these costly lsjs urles Is paid for out of the park taxes levied upon tho general tax payer, who reaps no benefit from bis outlay. Trees upon boulevards are main tained out of the general park taxes, levied upon all taxpayers. While the general taxpayer pays for the boulevard trees, be has also to pay for the trees In front of bis own home and Is then Informed by the city council that he does not own them. Special privileges to none, but equal rights for all Is the slogan that Is growing in volume. The people cheerfully contribute to the maintenance of parks, but they are unwilling to be bled longer for boulevards. The boulevard as a .tax-eating load on the general public, must go.

Some of the Dunne and Graham I CONNERY. Deserves a Re-election. Democrats are now in line for tho regular nominee. But there seems to be a disposition at the Briggs House to treat Dunne and Graham supporters as a Joke. Harrison says mat the contractors must go. Henry Stuckart for City Treasurer and Francis D. Connery for City Clerk are practically assured of election as they will receive tho solid Democratic vote. Don't Electrify. Tho Touchers' Union and the Round Houso reform club favor It. "But tho hardwiring railroad engi neers, who would havo their salaries cut in two If electrification passes the City .Council, aro against it. So aro the conductors and their friends. Likewise tho brnkomen and their friends. Tho honest, everyday people are with the railroad men. The railroads aro not entitled to any sympathy In their efforts to keep their men from earning living wages. The railroads keep up the price of transportation. They keep up freight rates. They squeeze tho public. Now they are kicking because their employes demand sufficient pay 1o keep their families fed and comfort ably clothed. For a long time the railroads have been encroaching on the rights of their men. Tho electrification scheme, so cun ningly worded as "Making for a clean city" as If railroad magnates ever cared for cloan cities Is only one of the many causes (or lowering the wago standard. Electrification means cheap electric motormon In place of onglneers In the territory surrounding cities. Tho steam engineers will become a secondary consideration and their wages will bo lowered In that event Instead of ralRod. The engineers, who aro perhaps the steadiest and most reliable class of public sorvants In tho country, are taking time by the forelock. They are going to get a better wage scale beforo tho electrification clamps are put on, or they will know the rea son why. If they do not get It, thero will be a general strlko of 33,000 locomotive engineers on sixty-ono Wcstorn rail roads. Tho railroads will surrender rather than faco a strike. You can bet on that. Henry Stuckart's candidacy for City Trcnsuror is growlfg stronger ovory day and his election by a record-breaking plurality Is predicted on all sides. Alderman Arthur W. Fulton has tho united bncklng of his own party for ro-olcction in tho Thirteenth ward and hundreds and hundreds of Democrats nro with him.

COSURN, Prominent Lawyer, who will be nominated by the Democrats for Superior Court Judge. for It In Springfield before the State Legislature. I stated then as I state now that I believe tho city of Chi cago Is large and big enough to regu late its own local affairs, and It ought to have tho power to regulate Its government and make Its ordinances to govern this town In such a man ner as ought not to Interfere with the customs of the cosmopolitan class that makes up tho city of Chicago, and that Includes our charter, for which I then stood and for which I still stand In regard to Sunday closing. "If the State Insists upon the Impo sition of laws that aro contrary to the wishes' of the majority of the people of Chicago, then tho State must be re sponsible for them, and not the city. And It Is perfectly clear to my mind that the majority of the citizens of Chicago would not approve of and do not desire the adoption of blue laws In this city. That they do not stand for that now, and that they are not likely to stand for that In the future." A stringent Bute taw Is needed to regulate the establishment of banks. There are too many wild-cat financial schemes now In existence In Chicago. Not wishing to compete with the big banks, Irresponsible people are starting up small banks In the outlying districts of Chicago, from time to time. This practice hnn hud disastrous results upon the business and financial Inter ests of the entire city. Many hundred small business men and traders have been ruined by this class of Institu tions. This nefarious practice should be stopiied and tho only wuy to atop It Is by municipal legislation. ' A provision ought to be made In the city charter authorising the city under Its police power to regulate the estab lishment of banks and creating In pursuance of this work a board for the examination of all proposed new banking concerns. Such a board should be given ample power to exam ine Into the financial standing of the promoters of these Institutions, and none should be allowed to be licensed unless such as could show assets ample for the carrying on of their business, sufficient to cover the amount of their deposits, and sound and substantial enough to thoroughly protect their depositors. There can be no question as to the right and the Justice of the city to exercise such power under a properly constructed charter provision. If the city bns the right to regulate plumb ers, to regulate engineers, to regulate the elctrlcal business, to regulate pawn brokers and the scores of other busi ness enterprises and Industries over which It exercises unquestioned super vising powers, It certainly has a per 'S JOHN P.

How often have we seen If that the failure of one of these little banks, started upon Insecure and irresponsible founda tions, and boomed by fraudulent and false representations, have dragged down to ruin hundreds of good, hard working, thrifty and deserving cltlsens. The licenses issued by the examin ing board, which, of course, should be composed of responsible cltlsens and able financiers, should be of a charac ter that would be absolutely prohibi tive of all schemes and projects for the establishment of phony concerns of this kind. This would be welcomed by all sound and responsible ' banking honsas, whether private or national. Banks like the Hibernian Banking Association, the Graham A Sons, the Union Trust Company, the South Ohl cago Savings Bank, the Commercial National, the Continental National, Drovers Deposit National, Illinois Trust and Savings, the Fort Dear born National, Northwestern Trust and Savings Bank, South Side State Bank, Merchants' Bank, National Banjt of the Republic, State Bank of Chicago, and other banks that have, weathered every panic and every storm for years deserve well of the people of Chicago. And yet foolish people pass them by and band their hard-earned money over to concerns that have not a single banker connected with them and whose leading men have been grafters either In political or private life, and who al ways have their hands out for easy coin. Lengthen those loop platforms and relieve the congestion during the rush hours. The next thing to do Is to pick out a good alderman. City Clerk Francis D. Connery has proven himself to be an honest con scientious and bard working publlo official and every good Democrat sohuld go to tho polls and vote for his re-election. It Is men like Connery who reflect credit upon the Democratic party and the rank and file should show their appreciation. SMULtKI, Polish-American Msrrlam Club. .. If r '!' m '( li '..
