IUinoit, under Act of March 3. 187. , ESTABLISHED OCTOBER 5, 1889. Incorporated undtr tha Lawa of Illinois. By Henry F. Donovan. 100 SATURDAY, JULY 5, 1913. DUNNE DID RIGHT. Governor Dunne Uegerves tho thanks of all good citizens for his veto of the bill Intended to turn Chi cago parks Into a local political ma chine. The Governor also has tho thanks ot the people for signing the public utilities bill, which puts an cud to the nefarious system which farmed out the people ot Chicago to tele phone and other corporations. Why a citizen ot Illinois living in the center ot the state should pay one-tenth thy amount for utility serv ice that a Chicago resident was obliged to pay by hlB "homo rulers" we never could understand. DANGER IN REFERENDUM. United States Senator Root, lu the North American Review, calls atten tion to a rising cloud. He says: "There is u serious danger to bo apprehended trom the attempt at leg islation by tho initiative and compul sory referendum, arising from Its probable effect on tho character of representative bodies. These expe dients result from distrust of legis latures. They are based on the as sertion that the people are' not faith fully represented in their legislative bodies, but ere misrepresented. The same distrust has led to the encum bering ot modern state constitutions by a great variety ot minute limita tions upon legislative power. Many of these constitutions, instead ot bo lng simple framework of government, aro bulky and detailed statutes legis lating upon subjects which tho people are unwilling to trust the legislature to deal with. So between the now constitutions, which exclude tho legis latures from power, and the refer endum, by which the people overrule what they do, and tho initiative, by which the people legislate in their place, tho legislative representatives, who were formerly honored, aro ham pered, shorn of power, relieved ot re sponsibility, discredited, and treated as unworthy ot confidence. The un fortunate offect of such treatment upon the character ot legislatures and the kind ot men who will bo willing to serve in them can well bo Imag ined. It is the influence of such treat ment that threatens representative institutions in our country. Granting that there have been evllB in our leg islative system which ought to be cured, I cannot think that this Is tho right way to cure them. It would seem that tho true way 1b for the peo ple of the country to address them selves to the better performance ot their own duty In selecting tholr leg islative representatives and in hold ing thoso representatives to strict re sponsibility for their action. Tho system of direct nominations, which Is easy of application in the simple proceeding of selecting members of a legislature, and the short ballot re form aim at accomplishing that re sult. I think that along these lines the truo remedy la to be found." RAQLKTM. The Sanitary District will go right ahead with the Calumet Sag channel and complete it. Judge Adelor J. Petit, one of tho most popular jurists on the Cook County bench, has been chosen Chief Justlco of the Circuit Court. Free ice during the summer months to overyono who applies for It is the plan of tho Consumers' Company to relieve suffering for lack of Ice In Chicago. The Innovation goes Into effect tomorrow at every one of tho 141 city stations of the company. Arthur B. Freeman, head of tho promotion department ot the Consum ers' Company, told how the freo Ice could be obtained, "In the first place," he said, "this free Ice Is designed to relieve the suffering of tho babies and of tho sick In hot weather. But there aro no strings or red tape tied to it. "Wo aro mailing Ice tickets to every doctor, priest, rabbi, minister, visiting nurse and heads of women's clubs In Chicago today. Each ticket entitles the person to whom It Is given to obtain fifteen pounds of Ice absolutely free any day or every day Jn the summer. All they have to do is to call at any one of our 141 sta tions. We do not deliver the Ice. Any person by asking their doctor, priest, rabbi, minister or any ot the other persons designated can ob tain one of these tickets." It Is hard to maxe' people see tho difference between being sold out by a State Commission and being sold out by a City Council. Phone service as bad as ever. After licking their chops at the Phone banquet, Chicago aldermen hate to lose good picking. Chicago Is one big city where high phone rates prevail. No more enthusiastic baseball crowds can be found than those at tending tho Federal Leagle games in Chicago. The next campaign will be the big primary battlo of 1914. Tho different leaders are already scurrying around looking after their political fences. Watch out for surprises. There nre 300,000 dogs in Chicago and only 28,000 of them licensed. Tho city's delivery of tho goods to tho phone crowd did not help "home rule" very much. Among tho men who voted for the Telephono Steal was tho leading re former. Ohl what a fall was there. Taxes will bo 7G per cent higher next year, thanks to the aldermen who bellevo in soaking tho public. There Is still a little grass and somo trees left In Lincoln Park. These will bo removed In time to make room for moro auto speedways. A four-year term for aldermen makes it harder for tho pooplo to get at them. Threo out or every four autos vlo lato tho tall light and number law. Many Republicans want to see Al bert J. Hopkins succeed Sherman In tho United States Senate from Illi nois. Chicago gives to Its people the poor est water sarvlce of any city In tho world for tho money they pay for it. With an exhaustlcss body of fresh water at her door Chicago Is constant ly talking about installing water meters In every flat and in every home to stop "waste." This Is In the face of the fact that the enormous surplus in the water fund is constantly being appropriated to meet other expenses of the city government instead of being used to extend and build up the water system. Water meters In every flat in Chicago would bring on a pes tllenco In this big city In a short time. Tho fellows who are shouting for water meters are grafters. Every man who talks of water meters or water waste in the homes ot Chicago should bo charged as a public enemy. The people cannot have too much water. To limit Its Use means pestilence and disease. New. York goes 168 miles for fresh water and the great aqueduct which carries It to her people cost over 500,000,000. It Is one of the marvels of modern times and ranks alongside of the Panama Canal as one of the wonders of the world. Liverpool, England, is supplied with fresh water by an aqueduct which brings a supply from Wales and yet there Is no talk of "waste" over there. Other European cities go even farther for their supply of water. But Chicago, with an abundance at band, la always howling about "waste." Who ts behind this water meter graft anyway? An enormous sum was diverted from the water fund this winter to supply the wants ot other city departments as you can learn from the recom mendations of the finance committee to the city council In the printed council reports. If the water fund was properly used, a pumping station could be built at the lake end of every section line In the city. If this was done you would hear no more about "water waste" and the necessity for moters in every house. Chicago people have been sold out to the telephone trust by some of the Chicago aldermen. This fact is proved by the Council records for the past year. An "expert" showed that about 1900,000 should be divided among tel ephone users and rent payers In Chi cago. Then, the Company pleaded that It was going to raise the salaries of its employes and pension them. That would eat up most of this sur plus. A number of the Aldermen be lieved this, or pretended to believe It. Chicago people will get no phono reduction. And now comes me telephone trust In Us annual report just printed, and says that after deducting nearly nine millions of dollars from Us profits for the purpose of raising salaries and pensions, it has a net profit of nearly one hundred and three million dollars left. The Chicago Company Is mere ly an underlying branch of this mon opoly and all the stuff, that we have been hearing at the Council Commit tee meetings has just been so much rot, pure and simple. Hero is what the Telephone Trust says Itself on this subject In its print ed report: "During tho Ave year period be tween 1907 and 1912 the assets of the Bell Companies have Increased $311, 000,000, while tho capital obligations and payables outstanding have in created only a llttlo over 1199,000,000. The surplus and reserves have In creased from $61,300,000 to $164,200, 000, or nearly $103,000,000, even after sotting aside $8,845,000 for the ben- fit fund recently created (or the ess i loves." Judge John R. Caveriy has made a record on the Municipal Court bench that he can be justly proud of. Until we have tne recall terms of offices should stay the way they are. William Hale Thompson's big army of friends in Chicago are a unit in their desire to see him Mayor of Chi cago. County Commissioner John E. Maloney la a public official who be lleves in working for the best inter ests of the people. Phone Trust Aldermen oppose the initiative and Referendum. Do you blame them? Albert J. Hopkins made a great rec ord In tho United States Senate and his friends all over Illinois are pre dicting his election by the people to succeed Senator Sherman. Chicago pays five times as much for telephone service as do the peo ple of 100 other cities. As a member of the Federal bench, Judge Edward Osgood Brown would serve tho people with credit to him self and to Illinois. The Chicago Railways Company Is anxious to bo merged with something else. It Isn't proud of the service It is giving to Chicago. Glvo us a referendum on telephono matters. Tho way of the reformer Is hard. Especially when ho wants to get all tho graft himself.

A merger of the two companies into one operating system Is contemplated, nnd if realised will mean the end of two separate lines within the city. The combine, it is declared, will mean the abolition of the automatlo system and the taking over of Its subscribers by the Bell company, This was announced following aa attempt to effect the revision of the telephone ordinance, which at present prohibits tho amalgamation of the 11 llnols company with any other locally operated concern, It has the aid of several aldermen In this now move. Should the Trust be successful Chi cago will be at Its mercy forever. Owing to the belief that the Instru ments and plant operated by the au tomatic company could not be used by the purchasing company, rumor has It that .the purchase of the or ganization is mainly for the purpose of overcoming competition and estab lishing a universal telephone system in Chicago. Because of a clauso In the ordinance passed In 1899, prohibiting the sale of tho company to any telephone cor poratlon operating In the city, it Is impossible without legislation to ef fect the sale. Tho step to overcome this obstacle was taken when an amendment to the present ordlnanco was presented to tho gas, oil and electric light commit tee of tho city council. The ordinance provides that if tho company makes any agreement "which would tend to mnko competition inoperative" the franchise would be forfeited. This clauso Is eliminated in the proposed amendment. Alderman Charles E. Merriam urged tho committee to pro ceed with caution In taking action. "In caso the automatic company dlsposps of Its properties to the Chi cago Telephone company," ho said, "tho latter concern probably will add to Its capitalization $5,000,000 or $0, 000,000, which amount would repre sent tho purchaso price."

SANITARY BOARD Work the Trustees of the Sanitary District of Chicago Are, Doing for the People. Sanitary District of Chicago. President, Thomas A. Smyth. . Clerk, John McGUlen. Treasurer, John A. McCormlck. 'Trustees: Thomas A. Smyth, ' James M. Dalley, Charles E. Reading, Edward Kane, Paul A. Hazard, Fred D. Brelt, Thomas M. Sullivan, George W; Paullin, ' Wallace G. Clark. The territory 'embraced In the Sani tary District or Chicago may bo added to under a new law. It provides that under a referendum voto Melrose Park, River Forest, Franklin Park and River .Grove may be annexed to tho Sanitary District. . Tho City Council of Chicago may go ahead nt Its next meeting and proceed with the plans for an outer harbor, under tho terms of tho O'Con nor act. It Is a perfected bill of the ono of two years ago which contained technical defects. The city Is given power to occupy all made lands, tttle to which Is In the state, and may bring all necessary suits to recover it. Under tho net tho powers of tho city are enlarged in relation to harbors, canals, slips, wharves, docks, levees, piers and brcakwnters, and all har bor structures. Stops toward repairing somo ot tho defects found by tho legislative In vestigating commlteo In ono of tho walls of tho sanitary canal at Jollot have been taken by the sanitary dis trict trustees. Parts of the wall, where disintegration was found, aro being strengthened and several holes found nbovo tho frost line aro being filled. No immediate steps will bo taken to rebuild tho'wnll entirely, inasmuch as its condition 1b not regarded as dangerous. Concerning tho legisla tive committee's report, Lyman E. Cooley, consulting engineer for tho sanitary district said: "The report of the' committee indi cates that there Is no immediate danger, so that Immodlato replace ment of the wall does not appear necessary. The report does Indicate, however, that eventually tho walls will have to bo rebuilt. The fault lies In the material used. Poor concrete "In view ot tho committee's re port, which indicates that there is no immediate danger if such defects as aro pointed out are remedied tem porarily. I have suggested to the board that such repair work be done and further rebuilding wait for a year or two. My reason is that in the course of a year or two, after cortaln suits in the federal courts are dis posed of, work on the deep water way plan may be begun. Working out of that plan will require certain changes in the construction and loca tion of tho walls, so that, as a matter ot fact, there would be required a new sot ot walls through the Jollot dis trict. Thereforo, with the absence of Immediate danger as Indicated in the committee's report, tho work ot re building the walls may safely wait until that time. "Definite plans along this line will have to wait further action by the legislature in the way of Investigat ing. The sanitary district probably will seek an appropriation to take care of such further Investigation aa appears necessary. The sanitary dis trict trustees aro willing to do every thing asked for by the legislative com mitteo In the way of making the walls safe." 'Tho engineering committee, of which Thomas Sullivan is chairman, voted unanimously to enter a con tract with tho cjlty to Install 15,000 additional lights and to rehabilitate about 9,000 now in existence A con tract practically completed called for 10,000 flaming aro lamps.

The Cabaret is arousing national attention. The tremendous growth of wealth, with Its consequent Increase In the number of "Idle rich, Is producing a class of criminals Id this country almost faster than the police can cope with It, according to Representative Borland ot Missouri, who addressed the convention of the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Mr. Borland declared that the "Idle rich" sot a pernicious example in their search for amusement and aroused a desire of emulation in the minds ot persons of small means. The result of such an example, he said, was to tempt poorer folk Into indis cretions and crime to obtain money with which to gratify newly acquired tastes. The cabaret show he declared to be ono ot the main causes for the spread ot the social evil. Si : K
