But what are tho facts of tho caso
as disclosed by the records?
Tho total number of votes polled
In tho recent charter member con'
vontlon election, according to offt
clal canvass, was 5,687. Itemcm
boring that this was a special clec
tlon, with only ono thing at Issue,
lot us make a few comparisons:
Total number of votes at tho spe
cial election hold June 21, 1911, to
vote $8,260,000 water bonds, was
6,377, or 300 votes less.
Total number of votes cast at the
special election held September 2,
1911i to adopt tho commission form
of government, was 7,823, and tho
commission plan was adopted by an
afflrmatlvo voto of 6,477.
By way of comparison, It may bo
noted that at tho last regular city
election, held May 7, 1912, the total
voto polled, after a heated cam
paign, was 18,216
So that of tho possible voters who
might bo brought out, the number
participating In the charter election
was not one-seventh, but ono-thlrd.
Just ono thing more as to tho
stay-at-homes, The law of proba
bilities, on which all statlstlce are
based, declares that tho stay-at-
homes aro moro likely to havo voted

Telegraph and Telephone.
The annual report for 1913 of the
American Telephono and Telegraph
company shows an Increase In gross
earnings for the year of $20,000,000
over 1911, which even the company
admits to be enormous. Yet the re
port contains no reference to rate's.
Tho rocont combinations of tel
phono ,and telegraph lines should,
with the resultant economies, while
tremendously ratslng revenues, also
Improve the service and ovontually
lower rates, Grant that a monopoly
In ownership, properly regulated,
makes for tho best service In tele
phones. It should also result In
cheaper service to the public.
Tho company mentions tho organ
ization and maintenance ot its em
ployes' pension, disability and bene
fit Insurance funds, which Is In line
with advanced policy and gratifying
to all concerned. More headway
has been made In modernising tho

OMAHA, March 19.-TO the Editor of
The Bee: I don't call this a square deal
to charge a minimum price of 80 cents
per month. My last bill called tor 100
cubic feet, SO cents, while the one before
called for 300 cubic feet and the bill Was
79 cents. It looks as the reduction In
price, benefitting large consumers, has
to be made up by thoso who use less.
Supposing a. house Is vacant a month, or
a part of a month, do we have to pay 50
cents a month anyway? Let us have a
little honesty In the management. There
are plenty who do not use 50 cents worth
and will have to pay for a meter besides.

columns of tho home magazine page,
published today In nearly every news
paper with a circulation of over 100,000,
and who will become cobwebbed and
dust-covered as soon as the homo maga

about this man? Has he given a sem

Is something ho has failed to do, and I

nal of March 16, 1913, for verification of
If Dr. Friedman Is really faithful In
his desire to do such a great public good
as he pretends to be, why does ho not
give the Secret of his supposed cure to
the world In tho samo way that Dr.
Khrllch gave his discovery of salvarsan.
Dr. Friedman came to this country In
tho same way under which thousands nf
quacks are working today and It was
right in every sense of the word that the
medical profession Should prohibit him
from practicing. No one as yet had
been prevented from giving a good thing
to tho world. But the medical profes
sion Is becoming tired of Imposters and
swindlers and therefore demands proof
rrom obscure Individuals coming here
with startling declarations.
Probably six months hence the peonle
who fell so easily for alt that has been
eald and written about this supposed
consumption cure will know how badly
thoy had the wool pulled over their oyesV
The axiom "The American people and
In fact the whole world love to be hum
bugged" still holds true.
If Dr. Friedman Is positive that he
can accomplish what ho declares he can
and wishes to do , divine act. then let
him expound hla secret to the world,
so that every physician may employ the
remedy and thus bring- relief to suffering
humanity. Let him cast off that cloak "of
conceit that no ono but himself daro ad-
