Drastic Rules Necessary to Curb the
Growing List of Fatalities
Last 6 Months Worst.
Chicago, Sept. 20. Despite the
passage of numerous ordinances and
the adoption of traffic regulations in
the larger cities of the country in an
effort to curb accidents from motor
cars, reports from more than a dozen
of the metropolitan cities of the mid
dle west show en increase in the
number of accidents for the first six
months of 1922, compared with the
same period of 1921. '
This increase has caused city of-'
ficials to prescribe drastic rules in
governing motor traffic in an en
deavor to lessen danger in modern
traveling. Several of the cities are
shown to be waging war on the auto
speeder, in many cases imprisonment
being added to fines by municipal
judges. Adoption of rules in turn
ing at street intersections, elimina
tion of glaring headlights and educa
tional campaigns are other methods
used in many cities in the campaign
against accidents. j
In Chicago in 1921. deaths attrib-;
uted to motor accidents totalled 575
as compared with 475 in 1920. Xon-'
fatal accidents totalled 8.637 in 1921
and 7. 085 in 1920. During the first
four months of 1922, non-fatal ac
cidents totalled 2,533-.
Killings at Cleveland
Forty-three persons were killed
and 1,055 injured in automobile ac
cidents in Cleveland from February
1, to August 1, 1922. To offset this,
workhouse sentences have been im
posed upon speeders and reeklees
drivers. No one under eighteen
years of age may drive a car, and
second offense for failure to have
lights burning results in arrest, no.
mstter what the circumstances. j
To curb accidents in St. Louis,
where Bixty-two were killed during
the first six months of this year and;
1,327 were injured, an educational j
campaign has been started, one-way i
traf ic has been established in con-j
gerted districts during business'
hours, automobiles must come to
complete stop at all boulevards, must
not pass a street car discharging!
rnrsengers, and must not exceed '
eight miles an hour in the congested j
districts and twenty miles in the
residential districts.
Detroit's attempts to increase safe
ty are the adoption of the tower sys
tem of regulating traffic and the es
tablishment of safety zones for street,
car passengers. Another ordinance j
requires all persons to be able to j
drive an automobile under all con-i
ditions before being granted a 6tate
driver's license. Seventy persons
were killed there during -the first
six monthr or 1922" and 1,921 were
injured. v
Strict enforcement of speed laws
and frequent jail sentences for the
speeders and reckless drivers has
been the method adopted in Indian
apolis for increasing safety. In
down town sections traffic officers
direct pedestrians, while others di
rect street traffic.

Tool, Neuman & Murtey,
Children of Former Emperor Bit
terly Resent Father's Coming
Karriage to Widow.
Doom, Sept-. 21. The marriage of
former Kaiser Wilhelm will occur
not with the freely given consent of
the entire Hohenzollern family, as
reported from Berlin, but despite :
their bitter opposition and, above all,
against the strongly expressed wish
of the crown prince, according to in
formation secured from a source very ,
close to the former kaiser.
The relations between the crown
prince and his father have lately be
come very strained, it is stated. The j
crown prince over a fortnight ago,
instead of staying at Doom castle, in
stalled himself at the Amerongen
castle with Count Bentick.
Thp nimnsitinn of the rrown nrlnce
and other members of the imperial j
family may be due, it is said, to fi
nancial reasons, rather than senti
ments of pride or caste. Those in a
position to know say that the former
kaiser's sons and especially the crown
prince, reduced to leading a very
simple life by their father's dictates,
may fear that the marriage will make
their situation worse. They also fear
further complications and contests In
the event of the death of the kaiser,
when his personal fortune, estimated
at $20,000,000, must be divided.

When the State Central Committee
Fails to Call Him, McKelvie
Goes Forth to Speak.
Since the republican state com
mittee has not 8e?n fit to send Gov
ernor McKelvie out to make cam
paign ppeeches, except one at North
Loup, the governor has gone ahead
and arranged three political meet
ings for next M-eek on his own ac
count, at which he will undertake to
enlighten the voters on the merits of
the code law.
He announced Tuesday morning
that he will ppeak at O'Neil on Sep
tember 2S, during the Holt county
fair; at Ainsworth on the 29th and
at Valentine on the 30th. All these
meetings will be in the afternoon.
He air has an engagement at Cen
tral Cl'.y on Saturday morning of
this week, during the full festival.
"I have made my own dates at
these places," Mr. McKelvie said in
response to a question. "The Invi
tations were received direct from the
different communities and I am go
ing out upon my own initiative, in
my own way and at my own expanse
to give the people the facts regard
ing their state government.
'I wish to say that there is com
plete harmony and co-operation be
tween the republican state commit
tee and mj'self.
i Would Enlighten-Voters
"My purpose is to clarify in the
minds of the people the isfues which
have been raised in the campaign
and present to them tie facts and
figures shown by the state records.
We make no denial of the fact that
state taxes and appropriations have
increased approximately 100 per cent
but it is only right and proper that
the people should know what this in
crease was for.
"In discussing the code I shall use
charts clearly indicating the form
of government that Nebraska used
to have and that which it has now.
From these charts it will be easy
for anyone to understand the differ
ence." The territory where Governor Mc
Kelvie is to make his series of
speeches is up in the same section of
the state where C. H. Randall, re
publican nominee for governor, re
sides. As the latter helped to put
the code law through the legislature,
and is making his campaign on the
republican state platform which en
dorses it in principle, the governor's
exposition of it is intend?! primar
ily to aid Randall's candidacy.
Governor McKelvie said Tuesday
that only oue cf the chartB he expects
to use had been made up as yet. an1
that he would display it to the audi
ence at North Loup on Wednesday.
