Popular Democratic Candidate for Mayor.
Chnrlcs K. Mcrrlnm, cnntlldato for
the Hopubllcnn mnyoralty nomination,
urges the necessity of Chicago elect
ing a mayor who can command the
confidence of both the city and the
stato In order that tho city's demnnd
for home rule may receive. Just con
sideration In tho state constitutional
contention. Captain Mcrrlam pointed
to his record as a city legislator as u
punrnntv that lie will bo able to press
Chicago's clalniB with expectation of
a friendly hearing. Ho Issued a state
ment setting forth In some detail his
views on tho subject of homo rule.
"A necessary plank In u Chicago
platform Is home rule in local nffnlrs,"
Capt. Mcrrlam said. "Chicago's gov
ernment was made away back in 1870,
and since then there have been bo
many chnnges In the world that tho
old patched up plan Is no longer ade
quate. Chicago has outgrown tho law
which fifty years ago was good
enough. What other business In town
Is run on an 1870 basis?
"Wo ought to have tho power to
mako our own city charter as wo
want It; to adopt a non-partisan elec
tion system, If tho peoplo wish It; to
say what the machinery of local gov
ernment shall be, If wo caro to change
It; to mako whatever local rulcH and
regulations wo want, subject, of
course, to tho general laws of tho
state. It Is ridiculous, or would bo If
It woro not so serious, that Chicago,
tho fourth city In tho world, should
be obliged to run down to tho stato
legislature for ovory llttlo chango In
Its machinery or to got any additional
power necessary to keep up with tho
"Theso Chicago requests not only
tako up tho tlmo of tho legislature
unnecessarily, but tho lack of local
authority to deal with local affairs
Interferes with tho growth of tho city,
with the business development of tho
community and with tho dally comfort
of our people. It Is high tlmo that
Chicago be given authority to moot
tho modern situation.
"Particularly ought Chicago to have
full control over its public, utilities
gas, electric light, street and olevated
railways and telephones If not under
federal regulation. In 1013 I was In
tho front ranks of thoso who woro
fighting for greater control over local
utilities In Chicago, but tno pcopio
wero not fully aroused at that tlmo
nnd such power as Chicago had was
weakened by tho law thon passed.
"I nm suro that every man or
woman who digs down for an extra
penny on tho 'IV or puzzles over tho
peculiar gas bills now knows what
homo rulo means and how Important
It Is to him or her personally. Tho
fact Is that Chicago understonds theso
local questions better than tho stato
outside, and wo would bo bottor satis
fled with our own conclusions any
way. "Slnco tho passage of tho Muollor
law locol control over utilities has
been understood by all sides In Chi
cago to Includo legal and financial
power to own nnd opernto utilities If
und whon tho public doslron to adopt
such a policy. Tho purpose of giving
such authority is to placo In tho city's
hands tho power to tnko whatever
courso regarding public utilities tho
peoplo may deom expedient. Thero
has been no disagreement on this
point for many years. Of course, con
stitutional changes aro nocessnry to
bring this about und should bo so
cured. "Homo rulo Is now moro Important
than over because tho htato constitu
tional convention Just approved by
tho peoplo will soon meet. In thot
body tho fato of Chicago for tho next
generation will bo decided. If wo fall
to obtain thoro tho power wo need,
then tho door will bo closed for prob
ably another fifty years. To n very
large extent tho outcome will depend
on tho next major of Chicago. Wo
can count, I am sure, on tho generous
co-operation of Gov Iiwden in an
effort to help our city. It tho mayor
commands tho confidence of tho peo
plo of Chicago and of tho entire state
of Illinois, It will bo possible to obtain
what tho city needs. If tho mayor can
present the city's cafo clearly and
effectively, and if tho stato trusts hlrn.
Chicago will obtain tho measure of
local government to which wo are en
titled. Our citlzf-ns should realize tho
situation beforo the opportunity has
knocked and gone away.
"The same thing is true of tho legis
lation which Chicago requires from
year to year. Chicago's ability to ob
tain favorublo consideration for her
mcosurcs depends largely on tho
mayor, who Is properly regarded ns
the spokesman of tho community. If
he commands tho respect and confi
dence of tho stato ho will go far; but
if not, tho road Is n rocky one. I
know this from personal experience,
for no man has fought harder for
Chicago legislation at Springfield than
I havo during tho last ten years. Many
n hard Journey havo I mado to Spring
field with men llko Aid. nichort, Lit
tler, McCormlck, Kearns, Kerncr, Cap
Italn, Fisher, Uellfuss, Sitts, I.tpps,
Nniico nnd others, only to meet nn
invisible barrier which kept us back
from necessary Chicago legislation.
"A home rulo plank in a platform
Is of llttlo value unless wo know who
Is back of It. My guaranty Is many
years of practical experience In tho
city council and nt Springfield work
ing for tho measures necessary to tho
growth and development of Chicago."
