made public In a signed statement Is
sued from the Drlggs. House headquar
ters by Secretary J. S. Mclnorney of
the Democratic County Central Com
mittee. The statement says that the
speechmaklng stage of the campaign
has been reached.
"Halls have been engaged In every
ward. In the city," the statement con
tinues, "and Henry Berger, chairman
of the Halls and Speakers Committee,
will be ready to announce the first
assignments of speakers In a 'few
days. All the Democratic candidates
on the city, county and state tickets
will have an opportunity ot meeting
the voters at our various meetings.
The campaign from now on will be
earnest and vigorous. This Is essen
tially a campaign of education. Gov
ernor Wilson will bo In Chicago, Octo
ber 10. Judge Dunne will, we under
stand, make another tour of the state
before opening his campaign In Cook
County. Meanwhile, the interests of
Governor Wilson and Judge Dunno
will be well cared for by our organi
sation." Chairman John F. Devlne, of the
Republican County Central Commit
tee, Is working hard.
"It Is the plan of the organization
to keep on the Jump every hour from
now until election day," said Chair
man Devlne. "The campaign has
been backward because the people
have been too busy with prosperous
times to worry about politics. The
time for active work Is here. Regis

Colonel James Hamilton Lewis,
Democratic nominee for United States
senator, In a speech at Marshall,
called Judge Sherman, his Republi
can opponent, to answer under which
flag he marched was he of the army
of Taft or Roosevelt?
Colonel Lewis said:
"I ask my friend, Judge Sherman,
to answer: Is ho for President Taft
and supporting the Payno-Aldrlch tax
tariff bill that the president says 'is
tho best tariff bill ever passed,' or Is
Judge Sherman with Colonel Roose
velt In his denunciation of this Payne
Aldrlch tax tariff law as 'a sham and
oppression, a trick of persecution'?
"I ask, Judge Sherman, do you
stand at Armageddon, or are you
'waiting at the church'? Are you
standing waiting for the marriage fes
tival In hopes that if Miss Illinois
shall wed either Roosevelt or Taft,
you may In either event be best man?
Will you support Taft In his veto of
the reduction of the price of woolen
clothes for this winter? Will you
support him In his veto of cheap cot
ton clothes for the people, all to their
loss of $500,000,000 or Is Judge Sher
man with Colonel Roosevelt In de
nouncing the vetoes as a violation of
the right of the people to rule?"

of Chicago, from time to time. This
practice has had disastrous results
npon the business and financial Inter
ests of the entire city. Many hundred
small business men and traders hare
been ruined by this class of Institu
tions. This nefarious practice should be
stopped and the only way to stop It Is
by municipal legislation.
A prorlslon 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. Bnch a board
should be rlren 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
There can be no question as to the
right and the Justice of the city to
exercise such power under a properly
constructed charter prorlslon. If the
city has the right to regulate plumb
ers, to regulate engineers, to regulate
tae elctrlcal business, to regulate pawn
brokers and the scores of other busi
ness enterprises and Industries orer
which It exercises unquestioned super
rising powers, It certainly has a per
feet right to regulate the banking busi
ness, which Is of far more Importance
than anything In the line of business
In the city, because upon the legitimate
and honest business methods of these
Institutions depends the welfare ot the
entire city In Its business and commer
cial life, while methods of a contrary
kind Indulged In by small, Irresponsible
speculative concerns only results In
failures that Involve Injuriously the In
terests of the entire community. Row
often have we seen It 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
This would be welcomed by all sound
and responsible banking houses,
whether private or national.

Some Items of Interest From the
Public Offices About Occur-
fAnces of the Week.
Aid. Irwin R. Hazen presented the
most drastic plan for now require
ment upon autolsts. It was an order
upon the corporation counsel to dratt
an ordinance requiring all nutomo
bilo owners owners ot small vehicles
as well as trucks to provide fenders
for their machines.
Aid, James A. Koarns presented an
order for an ordinance) requiring that
all machines equipped with self-starting
devices also bo fitted with locking
attachments that wilt prevent their
being started by mischievous boys or
other careless persons when tho driv
ing scats aro empty.
Aid. James Donahoe had passed an
order directing the chief ot police to
enforce strictly tho provision ot the
state law requiring that license num
bers attached to the rear ends of
automobiles bo lighted so that they
are leglblo for a distance ot ISO feet.
In pursuance of the opinion of Cor
poration Counsel Sexton that tho city
has, under tho cities and villages act,
the power to license and regulate pri
vate banks, Aid. A. J. Cermak had
passed an order for the drafting of an
ordinanco having this effect.
"I was surprised," ho said, "to And
the city has this power, but now we
know we have It wo ought to lose no
time In taking advantage of It. Tho
small banks now known as private
banks ought to bo kept under scrutiny
almost as closely as any other banks.
It is possible to bring them Into a
class that might be described as mu
nicipal banks, to bo examined by city
examiners just as tho state and nation
al banks are examined by tho stato
and national examiners."
Aid. Cermak said ho had not de
vised any specific plans, as ho de
sired to leave that question entirely
In the hands of tho law department.
Ho said ho would confer with Corpor
ation Counsel Sexton as to whether
the city could compel regular reports
from all banks not under stato or na
tional control, and whether tho work
of examining them cannot bo handled
by the city controller's offlee without
the creation of another department or
Tho certificate ot the architects for
the completion of tho city hall will
not bo approved by Commissioner of
Public Works McGnntt until minor
work throughout the building Is fin
ished to tho satisfaction ot tho city.
This was made known at a meeting
of the Buildings and City Hall Com
mittee, at which Mayor Harrison was
present. Assistant Corporation Coun
sel MathlaB and representatives of tho
architects, Holablrd & Roche, ex
plained the certificate had been Issued
because it was tho understanding that
tho building was substantially com
pleted. But Commissioner McOann
declared the building was not sub
stantially completed. The committee
adopted an order prepared by Alder
man Thompson which provided that
tho commissioner bo Instructed not
to sign the vouchor and that tho archi
tects Holablrd & Roche, confer with
