PUBLIC
OWNERSHIP
OF RAILROADS.
There is a world of difference be
tween public ownership of railroads
and political ownership.
When the general public own the
stock la a .railroad or utility it de
mands good management and good
public regulation.
Owners of stocks and bonds de
mand a fair return on their invest
ment and are opposed to radicalism
In legislation or regulation.
One of the largest and best man
aged western railroads showa earn
ings for the year ending July 1, 1916.
of $105,000,000.
million dollars over last year, and a
net earning of $32,000,000 or five and
Thiol isj an increase of thirteen
one-third per cent.
This railroad, )the C. M. & St.
Paul.( has $600,000,000 Invested as
actual cost of its properties and
could not be rebuilt for that.
It pays 4 1-2 per cent on its bonds
6 per cent on Its common stock, and
7 epr cent on its preferred stock.
How can the railroads as an in
dustry expand, build neee&sary lines
tus) branches and feeders, if it can
not get capital to work with.
How can even such a magnificent
property pay good wages, improve
its' service, keep up its property if
not allowed to make profits.
How can the general public be ex
pected to invest their savings in
such a property if they are not pro-
tested in their investment.
Real public ownership of railroads
takes place when the public gener
ally are stockholders and the em
ployes share in the earnings'.
Political ownership would mean
destruction of efficiency, increased
cost of operations, little develop
ment in new territory.

PER CAPITA TAXATION

A chart prepared by the Tax Com
mission of Wisconsin shows the to
tal per capita tax by state, coun
ties and cities for all the states In
the union to Ibe $35.73 for each man,
woman and child.
This would make the average fami

The next highest states are also

State, county, city and school le

and extravagances that must come
out of the taxpayer.

LAND PROBLEM AND

The record show that for past two
years State Land Board has dispos
ed of 10,72 acre&O f public land.
It is not known whether this was
sold to actual settlers or to logging
or cattle companies an thus was
further monopolized.
The pjoint is only raised from this

a policy of selling lands only to bon

BOOTLEGGERS USE CITY '

United States, continues to have great
trouble in trying to enforce Its Pthl-

Timt an organised ring of bootleg-
' ,11M,,iK with ll.iuor stolen from
property rooms in tlio Public Safety
building has reaped a splendid profit
In tho last two months, and that as a
result of an all-day secret Inventing
tlon among both civilian and police
employes a wholesale upheaval may
be brought about, were allegations to
day that stirred city officials.
" ..
-It looks as if tho city nan nan '
made the headquarters of a gang of
bootleggers." said Chief of Police
Charles L. Buckingham, following me
arrest of Lee Meyers, an elevator
oporator.
Meyors was caught by watching of
ficers while carrying a suitcase con
taining thirteen quarts of beer and
two paper sacks each containing two
quarts of the beverage.
The arrest was made by Patrolmen
R. L. Boggers and W. W. Morris, the
policemen asserting that they caught
Meyers as he issued from the store
room where confiscated liquors are
kept on the third floor of the building.
One Civilian Implicated.
One other civilian employed is
known to be implicated by the state
both Meyers and another
witness, as well as three police offl
cers.
Shortly after Meyers' arrest a fur
th .oarrh nf the building was made
and a aunny sack containing seventy-
one quarts of beer was found hidden
In a closet on the third floor. Meyers
la alleged by the police to have ad
mltted that this stock is a portion of
th bottled eoods he had removed
from the storeroom.
Meyers was "sweated" for several
hours after his arrest by Chief Beck
inaham and, according to the chief,
made a complete confession ot his con
nection with the Illicit handling of the
liquor. A number of other employes
of the building were examined by the
chief and Captain of Detectives Chas,
Tennant, but except for the admission
that there had been a systematic or
ganization for the theft and sale of the
stored liquors, the officials declined to
make any statement for publication.
A decided air of expectancy per
vaded police headquarters. Whether
members ot the department have
been implicated is the cause of
this suspense. It Is known definitely
that three officers have been charged
with participation in the work of the
ring, and It Is known further that city
detectives are searching for places
where the stolen liquor was disposed
of.
After Drug 8tores, Too.
Prohibition has resulted in a great
Increase In the number of drug stores
In Seattle. Liquor is sold openly In
these places. Realizing tha. they can
not curb this Illicit traffic in any
other way, the city authorities have
decided to treat the drug stores as
saloons. This, also, is from the Seat
tle Times:
Legislation expected to lessen the
number of drug stores engaged in the
sale of Intoxicants by imposing a li
cense of $1,000 a year; making the
buyer as well as the seller guilty of a
misdemeanor for Illegal liquor traffic,
and declaring it unlawful to drink
liquor In a cafe or other public place
is proposed In a council bill Introduced
at the council meeting by Councilman
William Hickman Moore, by request.
The measure carries the Indorse
ment of Mayor Hiram C. Gill and the
officials of the state Anti-Saloon
League, who suggested a number of
the provisions. '
Under the provisions of the pro
posed ordinance only those drug
stores whose proprietors wish to dis
pense liquor will be required to ob
tain a license. Drug stores that do
not keep liquor need not pay the
license fee, but the possession of
liquor by any drug store not having
a license would be a violation of the
law.
Besides making It unlawful to buy
as well as to sell intoxicants except in
the manner provided in the state dry
law, and declaring it unlawful to drink
or give away or furnish intoxicants in
any cafe, restaurant, public dining
room, confectionery, drug store, soft
drink establishment, pool hall, club or
any other place of public resort, the
proposed new measure makes It 11
.ogal to rent or lease premises, boats
or vehicles for the improper sale or
handling of Intoxicants; requires drug
gists to paBte a green label on all con
tainers of liquor, and makes it unlaw
ful to give a fictitious or incorrect
name in obtaining a prescription for
liquor.
The bill further provides that it
shall be unlawful to have liquor In
one's possession on which there is no
green label not more than five days
old, unless shipped in under a permit
from the county auditor.
Licenses $1,000 Each.
The council is empo vered to grant
liquor licenses to drug stores author
ized to sell liquor under the state dry
law, at $1,000 a year, which may be
revoked by the council for cause and
shall not be assignable. In the event
of revocation no new license shall be
issued to the holder of the original
license wlthlqa period of one year.
of the holder for any violation of the
proposed ordinance.
It Is also made unlawful to sell liq
uor In any licensed drug store having
more than one en trance or exit, such
entrance or exit to ho upon the street
and in no Instance from any other
building or room.
It Is made unlawful for any pernon
lint a common carrier to bring
I ho city not nu.ro Chun half a gallon or
whisky or twelve quurt of l'r In
any twenty-day period. Tho bill
requires that within ten days after
tho proposed ordinance becomes effec
tive, each druggist slinll iwu a irun ...
ventory of all Intoxicants on hand
with the city comptroller,
Flxlnfl the Amount.
Th umiiunt of intoxicants that may
be kept In stock by druggists Is loft
blank in the draft Introduced last ;
night and this amount will be nxa
by the council. Ten gallons mors
than one barrel of whisky and tho
same amount of alcohol Is the quantity
suggested by the Anti-Saloon League.
The penalty for violations of the
proposed ordinance Is a fine of not
less than $fi0 nor more man siuu or
thirty days In tho city Jail, or by both
fine and imprisonment, for tho first of
fense. Penalties tor sunsequoni run
vletlons shall be a fine of not less
than $100 and not less than thirty
days in the city Jail- I
