One of the most favorable events of the past week was the passage of the railroad 1.11 very much in the form which President Taft first desired eomm'-nis uenry l lews. A few years ago such a measure would have ere ated const.-rnation In Wall Street. To- tluy its passage ha been thoroughly discounted, and as railroad officials and investors become accustomed t Its provisions, its restrictions will ap pear less distateful than at one tim anticipated. The bill may contain minor defects, but is certainly th oest that could be passed, and will work no harm ! to the railroads; in fact It may prove a benefit, for it will disarm public hostility and insure fair treatment for both railroads and shir. pers. The railroads will noon adapt them?elves to its provisions, and it I liit safe to say that no Important new railroad legislation will be at tempted for some time to come. Th question of rates will now fortunately b l'ft open for discussion. Advances will not l,e impossible, hut the rail roads will have to justify such steps before making them; thus protecting the public from exorbitant charges, and giving the railroads freedom to advance rat en when Justified.

The News published some of his find Ingi in yesterday's Issue, and every day he Is uncovering Just such facts as those we presented.

An effort was made by Alderman Maler and Francis of the second ward to have the resolution re lative to the special sewer tissessmetit amended so as to have the city pay the difference between a ten-inch and twenty-seven inch sewer in a portion of the Wright addition. An extended debate on the matter resulted in the passing of the original resolution un changed. The awarding of the contract for supplying the city with a steam roller was deferred till this evening. Ten bids were received, ranging from $2,- JUU to $2,MH), and were referred to th city engineer and street committee, to report at an adjourned meeting to bi held this evening. - At torrightVn reef ing the bids fur garbage cans will als be opened and acted upon. Stwer Bids Accepted Close & Hodgson were the successful bidders for furnishing the sewer pipe for the new west Hancock district, and Wick O'Connell presented the only bid for laying the same. The board of public works which met at 4 o'clock yesterday afternoon recommended to the council the acceptance of these bids, which was subsequently concur red in by the council. Close & Hodg sons urn ior furnishing the pipe was $1'. 377. 12 which was lower by $221 than ny of the other bids submitted. Oth er bidders were C. X. Mason, It. I. Dunstan & Co., and the Keckonen Hardware company. The board rec ommended that the certified checks furnished by the other bidders be re turned and that the check of Close & Hodgson be retained until the contract Is signed. The council authorized the chairman and the clerk to execute the contract.- Only rne bid was received for the sewer construction work. This was submitted by Wick O'Connell & Co., and was for the sum of $18,497.30 which was, on recommendation of the board of public works, accepted. An other recommendation that J. J. l'.yers & C. be paid the balance of 20 per cent due on their water extension con tract, and amounting to $1020.13, was also concurred In. The council adopted a resolution au thorizing the clerk to advertise for bids for the sale of the proposed sew er bonds, amounting to $14,40S.7fi, to be in not later than Julv 10. Must Not Watte Water The board of public works at Its meeting yesterday afternoon took up the matter of regulating the use of water for sprinkling purposes, It be ing, stated that residents are disobey ing the regulations restricting the use of garden hose and sprinklers to cer tain specified hours. The rules allow the use of hose for sprinkling purposes from d to 9a. m. and from 4. to 8 p. m.. end the size of nozzle opening of 3-16 of an Inch In diameter. Residents all over the city are paying no attention whatever to the regulations but are sprinkling at all hours of the day. The result is that n vast quantity of watef s being used, necessitating the work ing of the pumps to their utmost cap acity to prevent the water In the rcs- rvolrs falling to too low a point. The board decided to call attention to the d.servance of the rules and the dan ger of a water shortage If violations are continued. FORMER CALUMET MAN.

On the Fourth of July following the admittance there will formally be adi-cil to the starry background of the American flag two new stars. The present arrangement of the 40 stars Is in the form of four rows of eight stars and two rows of seven stars. The rows nre arranged as follows: First row, eight stars; . second row, seven stars, third row, eight stars; fourth row, eight stars; fifth row seven stars; sixth row, eight stars. "Wlille the fu ture design, including the two new stars, has not been decided upon, It Is probable that they will constitute six rows of eight stars to a row. This changes the appearance of the starry corner materially. As the even lines give a rather stereotype appearance to the corner of.,tbe flag, a totally new design may be selected. REID MAY BE RECALLED FROM COURT OF ST. JAMES. FAIR BANKS MAY GET APPOINT MENT. LATEST PICTURE OF EX-VICE PRESIDENT FAIRBANKS AS HE APPEARS TODAY. Washington, June 21. The days of service ef Whltelaw Held as American ambassador to the court of St. James are numbered. This Information comes from a source in possession of beth American and Itritish sides of the case The Informant declares that King Ceorge and Mr. Held, while on cordial terms, are not dose to the degree of official Intimacy expected between the king and an ambassador. In support of this It is pointed out that at all court functions nivcn by the late King Fdward, Ambassador Ueid was seldom In the group that surrounded the prince of Wales. , King fSeoige is against making of the Pritish court a climax to the social ambitions of rich , foreigners, and is fa Id to have often remonstrated w ith his father for the way presentations were engineered. King George already is eliminating all foreigners from his entourage. He is to retain only those who have married into thc Prltlsh no bility, nnd this rule nlso will be fed lowed by the queen. In the list of his court attendants published yesterday John Ward, Mr. Reid's son-in-law, was the only American retained, nnd he is an "extra equerry." As a result of the new king's wishes, the state department has found It nec essary to bring to the president's at tention the Imperative change before the close of the period of mourning in November. It has been said that the reason President Taft has so long de layed making a change Is his desire to wait untU after the elections, so as to see who will be frozen out. The understanding Is that Charles V. Fair banks, former vice president, win see his wny clear to accept the ambassa dorship, which Indirectly has been of fered to him. Mr. Knox is in favor of Mr. Fairbanks, nnd so la Senator Root of New York. Senator Henry Cabot Lodge. Is nlso considered for the place. Mr. Fairbanks, who is now living at Ids old home In Indianapolis, after re turning freim a year's trip around the world, has recently been described as a "public man in private life." He is dolnnr some writing for publications, meeting friends from all over the coun try who come te se-e him, and occa sionally making a public address. The former vice-president Vns especially Interested during hl.s tiur abroad In the work of American foreign mission aries and of the American Y. M. C. A. In foreign affairs, and he has delivered a number of addresses on 'this subje ct before religious bodles. It Is said that Mr. Fairbanks has met more rulers than any other living American; this during his recent tour of the world, and as he was received with M-ml-nffl-rial honors he came lnt terms of per. sonal Intimacy with most of those to whom he was presented.
