D. 1-ane's resolution, declaring for a Ive-cent faro, would Ih> perfectly nil right it it were not >therwi*e belied by his nttitude towarda the municipal aihvay. More assertion that he is for the five-cent fare will not k> swallowed by the public so easily, knowing, ns it must, hat l-nne is one of the group of wilful men who are it rowing every obstacle in the jmth of the system's making rood on a nickel fare. The way to maintain a five-cent fare is to permit the municipal railway system to effect such economies and uich improvements as will insure that rate. How has Lane and the others of his mind met this proposition? Can they say. in good conscience, that they have tried to make the municipal railway a success? Can they say. truthfully, that they now are trying to do so? Can they, for instance, show why streets having no car tracks should bo paved with funds obtained thru taxation and assessment, while streets, which have car tracks, should lie paved at the cost of the nmnicipul railway, in part, at least? Can Lane answer that honestly, squauly, and without any political equivocation? We know very well that the city made the street car company pay for paving between tracks. But that is m reason why the municipal railway should have to follow suit. We made the company pay it the same reasoi that we made the company pay 2 per cent of its gro receipts. The private company was using public propert for the conduct of its business. We therefore charged i so much rent, as it were. In the case of the municipal railway, the public is usin; its own property. Councilman Lane knows that. An< Councilman Krickson knows that. And Councilman Boltoi knows that. And Counciiman Moore certainly knows it. When the municipal railway was purchased, the cit> agreed to maintain such 'fares as would insure the compan; its principal and interest. Now, after Lane and his co! leagues have done what they could to make the street ca fares higher, he comes into the council chamber with ; five-cent resolution. It cannot be done, and Lane knows it Lane does not present his resolution "with clean hands," as the lawyers say. "As iff gather about the family board today let tts remember the houseless and homeless and unbefriended." She Goes It Alone Evidently the modern woman, especially the professional or wage earning woman, desires restriction and habitual repression as little as her brother. Many people have gone along for years believing that the women liked rules of conduct, liked to be herded in the straight and narrow way, preferred to personally be con ducted in the way they should go. Bat when the woman has a chance to mind her own busi ness and live her own life, she apparently does it as whole heartedly and as unmindful of the narrow minded conven tions as her brother. The international convention of women physicians sat promptly upon the suggestion that it go on record as oppos ing the use of tobacco by women. The convention consid ered that it was not in place for it to determine or dictate the habits of individuals, and in this it acted precisely as a masculine gathering of professional men would have per formed. The newest women's hotels have no chaperons, no rigid rules, no 10 o'clock curfew. Some of the largest hotels of this sort, even managed by church organizations, leave the question of personal habits and pleasures entirely to the guests. A somewhat striking change from the close herding system of a few years ago. A woman jury descended in wrath on a judge recently because he told an erring wife to return to her husband, or go to jail. "No woman should be forced to live with a man she doesn't love, whether he's her husband or not," cried one juror. And when the wife chose jail rather than another tryout with friend husband, another juror said: "I admire her spunk." The old idea was that a woman jury would always give the woman the worst of it; that idea died about the first time a woman jury functioned. The new woman is as eager for personal freedom, and the right of self expression, and cares no more for inane formalities, for "nice conduct," than the man. Just how this is all going to work out when they get married is something a tempestuous future wJJI disclose. If the headline* concerning the running nmurk of ptcrt of the country pet your (/oat, reflect how great a » l>art of the country hasn't yet gone crazy and calm your self. Professor David Todd believes that the people of Mars are superior to the people of this earth because they have greater difficulties to contend with. There is no rainfall on their planet. Canals must convey from the polar ice-caps all the water needed for agriculture and to support life of any sort. Mars will dry up in time, and its inhabitants perish. (All the while assuming that these inhabitants exist.) Pioneer connditions in the United States bred a splendid race of Americans. They had to fight against odds to keep alive. A new kind of odds and fresh obstacles are piling up before the modern American. . The individual's problems are more pressing than ever before. He is in no danger of being pierced by an arrow on his way to church, but it is almost as painful to pay the 1919 price for a pair of shoes, for example. So we should be acquiring strength of mind and soul; we should be improving as the result of the very harshness of life's demands. It may lie, therefore, that all the uncomfortable happen ings of these days are true blessings. Senaor McS'ary says the present suf/ar famine condi tion* are psychological. That'a encouraging. Now per haps he will show us a way to sweeten coffee with psy chology. When the government announces that it will use drastic measures, everybody shudders. That means another conference.
