No two individuals are alike, and
no two cities aro alike. No two
households are run exaotly tho same,
and no two cities aro conducted in
tho same way.
In tho early days each city In this
country had to secure a special grant
of authority from tho colonial gov
ernor, or from the legislature that
succeeded to his authority, for every
exercise of local functions. But In
tho courses of time tho necessity of
tho legislature dealing with each
separato incorporated city and town
not only proved unsatisfactory, but
produced scandals that smelled to
heaven.. New York's up-to-that-tlmo
best charter was bought for cash by
tho Tweod ring In tho 70'b, and
Washington's city government was
part of a local boss' graft. It was
to get away from theso evils that the
demand aroso that the grant of spo
clal chartors cease, and that cities
and towns be Incorporated, like other
corporations, under gonoral law.
In many states, including Ne
braska, an express prohibition on tho
legislature was written into tho con
stitution against passing any special
act for Incorporating cltlos. The
obvious necessities of tho case, how
over, soon forced evasion by resort to
prcttfndod "classification." Bp here
Nobraska wo have had a ganeral
law governing cities of the metro
politan class, but, In truth, applying
to only ono city; another for "cities
of the first class with a population
oxecoding 40,000," and another for
"cities of tho first class botwoon 25,
000 and 40,000" of course, nothing
but special charters, each for a par
ticular city. In Ohio the refinement
of "classification" was carried so far
by general laws applying, for exam
ple, to all cltlos which by tho last
census had not less than 9C.000 In
habitants and not more than 9D.010
inhabitants, that tho courts were
finally compelled to call a halt But
everywhere tho so-called gonoral
laws are general moro In namo and
form, than in BUbstanco.
It Is the reaction from the abuse of
this sybtom, Which everywhere Is
either flagrantly violated bylho law
makers or binds cities In a "trait
jacket municipal government, that
tho movement for homo rule chartors
owes its inception and progress. By
vesting tho pooplo of each city with
power to framo and adopt their own
charter, without lot or hlndranco
from tho legislature insofar as It con
cerns itself purely with local affairs,
tho obstacles in tho way of improv
ing municipal government by making

Surely tho country wishes to have
dono with such railroad mergoro as
havo for their solo end the elimina
tion of competition and tho boosting
of dividends. It is of special Inter
est to note, therefore that congress
will bo urged to enact legislation ex
tending government control over in
torstato railroads. The recommenda
tion for such measures comes from
tho Interstate Commerce commission
as a result of Its recent investigations
of the character and effect of rail
road combinations. It found that In
certain notable cases of eastorn
roads, such as tho Now York, Now
Haven & Hartford, that the combina
tion made the roads top-heavy, and
this In turn stood in tho way of safo,
efflclont and economical operation.

ernment in providing for improved
facilities and greater efficiency. .
Curb the Auto Speeder.
Statistics on automobile accidents
purporting to bo reliable show terri
ble ravages all over the country. In
forty-four states and the District of
Columbia, for Instance, from April 1
to May 23, 1013, thoro were 1,698
accidents, with a toll of 260 deaths
outright, 424 serious and 1,148 other
Injuries. And this shocking average
is generally maintained as to months.
Now York leads all states, with 467
accidents for the period named,
01 deaths 136 sorlouo and 263
other accidents. Now York, of course,
has moro machines than any other
state. Nebraska for that period re
ports six accidents, with two deaths
and eight Injuries, four BorlouB.
There seems to be no oxcoption as to
time or sections.
We have been busily and com-
mendably engaged in providing laws
for the safe conduct of trains, and
with excellent results. Railroad
casualltles aro diminishing In num
ber every year and railroads aro
spending enormous sums of money
to reduce the hazard of travel. Now,
It is high time for the people to give
more attention to tho safe conduct of
their own private vehicles, tho auto
mobiles. As they multiply with
prodigious rapidity each year tho
problem of their regulation becomes
more complex and difficult. It cornea
homo with emphasis to every com-
jniuulty, Yet with what bland Indlf-
ferenco wo regard theso 1,600 accl
dents and 260 deaths In less than two
months! It is time for action to
spoak louder than words.

And Smith Is sincere In thinking
that thoro is something in what ho

to como a little hard for poor Smith,
as compared with tho easy sailing of

When tho rule seems to vary, look

SOUTH OMAHA, Neb., March 13, 1911
Hon. Jamas Ev Martina, United State
Senate, Washington, D. C Sir: I am in
receipt of a copy of your senate docu
ment, entitled, "Washed Money,'4 which
I have read with much Interest and great
pleasure, and which expresses my views
upon the questions Invotved better than I
could have expressed them myself.
When the proposed chance in the form
of our currency was first advanced by
Secretary MacVeagh, I filed strenuous ob
jections, but they received scant courtesy.
nave also written Secretary McAdoo re
peating my objections, copy of letter be
ing herewith enclosed.
A SHAME TO GO BACK TO "SHIN
PLASTHRS." It would seem a shame that our great
government should go back to the Issuing
of "ahlnplaaters" and street car transfer
in tho form of currency, simply for the
purpose of saving a few dollars' expense,
the larger part of which has heretofore
been borne by the national banks with
out complaint, so far aa I know, upot
their part. If a part of the expense whlon

sending of new currency to the banks
throughout the country, It would seem
t be better for all.
It is said that the Bank of England
never reissues a note after it has once
been returned to the bank, even though
It ha never left the banking room.
SECRETARY MACVEAQll'S INSPIRA
TION. ( think the late secretary of the treas
ury. In making the order to change the
Iform of our currency, was actuated by
the same motive as the ruler of a country
who orders the profile changed on the
coin that his reign may be remembered.
I sincerely trust that you may be able
to bring enough pressure to bear upon
Secretary McAdoo to prevent the pro
posed change in our form of currency,
and also stop tho laundering of our
money, which la a dlsgraco to our govern'
ment. Respectfully yours,
C. P. M'GREW, President.
Tho presumption Is, of course, that
tho honorable senator from Now Jer
soy has written Into tho letter his
own headlines, and that tho collec
tlon of letters will soon appear In an
other public document for distribu
tion freo of postage. But tho adver
tising for tho banks arouses no pro

Involves the charge by Congressman
Henry of Toxas and others that the
Glass-Owen measure, as drawn with
approval of President Wilson and en
dorsement of Secretary Bryan, is
"wholly in tho Interest of tho creditor
classes, tho banking fraternity and
tho financial world, without proper
provision for the debtor classes and
those who toll and produco and sus
tain tho country." The former teach
ings of Jefferson, Jackson, CalHoun,
Benton and Bryan, Mr. Henry de
clares, have been ignored and only
tho siren voice of tho money devil
presumably is heard.
That makes out a worse indictment
against the party than oven its polit
ical opponents havo made and putq
currency legislation prospects at this
lata date In the extra session In a
very chaotic condition. Somo time
and somehow tho country will have
its tariff and currency laws satisfac

democratic friends will discover the
practical difference between sitting
