Ready for. Public Control.
The American Telephone and Tele
graph company, commonly known as
the Bell system, in its annual report,
makes a frank appeal fop a single
ownership of telephone lines through
out the country under proper govern
mental regulation. That much prog
ress toward this end has been made
may be gathered from thlB statement:
Wherever It could be legally doue and
done with the acquiescence of the public,
opposition companies have been acquired
and merged into the Bell system.
The report declares that since these
merges began the cost of construction,
including toll lines, per exchange sta
tion, has steadily decreased, from $199
in 1960 to $142 in 1910, and corre
spondingly there has been an average
decrease for the annual charge for ex
change service, from $44.68 in 1900
to $31.28 in 1910. The taxes paid in
1910 were more than 5 per cent of
gross earnings, 16.4 per rent of the
net earnings and 1.4 per cent of its
valuation of its telephone plants.
The contention is made, and fairly
so, that the telephone should be as
universal as the highways, extending
I from one man's door to another's, and
that rates should be made thoroughly
popular and reasonable. This, It is
contended, could be best done' under
one ownership and fair regulation.
So far as competition goes, the tele
phone Is one public utility whose ser
vice to the people is hindered rather
than helped by diverse systems and
ownerships. As far as that is con
cerned,' there has never really been
actual competition between telephone
companies, but the only effect of at
tempted competition has been to force
people to maintain two telephone sys
tems for a while where one would
If the benefits of competition can be
had and the evils avoided by public
control and regulation, that will be
the next step.
California Fuel Oil.
It Is reported that the Standard Oil
has bought from the Southern Pacific
:!the controlling interest in the Asso-
elated Oil company, the chief produc
ing concern of California. If this re
port is correct it means that the Stand
ard has practically gobbled the pro
duction of fuel oil aa well as illumi
nating oil ln this country, for what
other producers exist In California and
elsewhere it can control, as it has
hitherto controlled the Associated, by
manipulating the market price of oil.
The Associated Oil company' wells
are principally in Kern and Loa Ange
les counties. It has done a good deal
of absorbing on its own account, hav
ing a few years ago taken over a num
ber of smaller competitors , I'o a
long period ita output was suppoja
to have been controlled by the Stand
ard, whose tanks and railroad lines
were in close proximity to the prop
erty of the Associated. And tl.o
Southern Pacific has been the Asso
ciated' chief customer. Mr. Har
rhnan himself la said to have arranged
all this soon after the Kern county
fields began to assume large iro por
tion. What baa now been done,
therefore, will scarcely have any revo
lutionary effect, since the Rockefeller
interest has held sway in a way nil

It is a crucial time with the demo
crats and they are willing to do most

.lust now the two men who loom
largest on the horizon of possibilities
are Cbainp Clark and Governor vYood- t
row Wilson of New Jersey. Govern r

but iiiH.-much as he fould never r'

not have the entire naming of the ifti
dldatc, his strength will be sufficient
to prevent the nomination of a man
specially objectionable to him. He lias
indicated a preference for Clark and
a friendship for Wilson.
These two men, then, may be con
sidered as on trial. Governor Wil
son is thus far displaying elements
of personal strength In his fight with
the old democratic state machine, but
whether the apparent victories he -is
achieving there will make or unmake
his chances of the presidential nomi
nation remain to be seen. Final
I judgment cannot be passed on bim
until he has had time to fall or suc
ceed In the reforms he has set" for
himself in boss-ridden New Jersey.
Much the same may be said of Champ
Clark, whose preliminary heat will
begin April 4 as he ascends 'o the
speaker's chair, It must be said that
up to date Clark has proved very
wobbly. He has changed front on at
least three vital Issues within the last
year, giving no promise of sound con
viction or stable leadership. In that,
however, he ehowg himself to be the
antithesis of the resolute Dr. Wilson,
and the typical opportunist in politics,
who, irrespective of all serious quali
fications, may suit exactly, providing
he attracts rather than alienates the
different factions as speaker.
If in the meanwhile, however, any
one rises above the democratic dead
line who looks like more vots than
either of those mentioned, he vlll be
acclaimed the true leader, for tt is a
touted winner that is wanted, and
none other need apply.
Our Precious Water Board.
A frantic appeal emanates from the
local democratic organ to save our
precious ($8,260,000) Water board
from being submerged in the floodtide
of the campaign sfor the commission
form of city government. We must
have the commission form of govern
ment, so we are told, to wipe out the
extravagance of a separate council.
Park board, Library board and Police
board, but on no account must we
permit the precious ($8,250,000)
Water board to be harmed by even a
hair. " To give the Water board full
benefit of ita defense we quote:
The World-Herald feels safe ln saylng
that a large majority of those Omaha
people who believe in commission form of
government upon principle are also op
posed to abolishing- the Water board and
turning the water plant over to the ten
der mere lea of the politicians. It waa not
by their consent or by their advice that
the amendment agreed upon by the house
committee to continue the Water board
was left out of the senate bill. And If any
of the boosters ot the bill consent to have
a blow struck at the Water board In the
hope, that by this means they could gain
support for their bill and their plan from
a powerf ul and expected quarter, they may
aa well be warned that they are playing
- This Is almost funny. The World
Herald would have us believe that the
commission form boosters are trying
to turn the parks, the' public llbiary,
the police and fire departments, and
the whole city hall "over to the ten
der mercies of the politicians," and
that our present precious ( $8,250,
000) Water board is not now made up
of politicians. The best straight-from-the-shoulder
answer to this
piteous plea that we have seen ia the
following taken from the Western. La
borer: The duplicated renponalblllty ; the dupli
cated boards that are good for the men on
the pay roll, but unelees to the city are
aome of the things the commission form of
government could remedy. But when the
men on the boards are strong enough to
have their own caisea made exceptlona be
cause they wish It. than the sincerity of
the reformers rommencea to turn yellow.
If the commission form Is good and we
believe It la It should be applied on the
square. The new commission should have
turned over to It the whole darned works
of the town without any strings tied to
them. It la silly to except the water board
and Include the police board.
By all means save our procluus

Ever hear of the Boda shaker heart? It's
a disease developed among fountain at
tendants and is due to the exertion ot mix

Jerky movement of the arms greatly ac
celerates the heart action and soon brings
on a permanent high pulse.
"It takes about 300 shakes to mix an
egg drink properly," said a fountain at
tendant, "and ft is not unusual for a man
to mix 100 such drinks In a day. That
makes 30.000 motions in a day or 1.0u0

it, but the heart can't stand It."
