.Aa ordinance will be introduced at
the next meeting of the city council,
Tuesday, September 15, that Is of spccinl
interest to automobile drivers as well
s the small brother, the motorcycle.
Signs will be placed at the city
limits on all roads entering the city
with the cheering news that 20 miles
is the limit of : speed until the fire
limits is reached, and then it will be
advisuble to slow down to 15 miles an
bour. While passing a school house
during school hours, the limit is 10
rules an hour and the same Is the
limit of speed for paved alleys.
No one under the age of 17 years
shall be permitted to drive a ear in
the city limits, according to the pro
posed ordinance. This has become
necessary on account of the number of
children driving cars and is in line
with the ordinance of other cities.
"Another provision of tho proposed
ordinance is that no one shall leave a
ear standing with engine shut off with
in 20 feet of a fire hydrant. Of course
the car can stand that close to a
hydrant if the driver is in the car and
the engine running.
ah cut outs must be
operating in the city limits and this
will be enforced, if the ordinance is
passed, to apply also to motorcycles
and auto trucks.
. All cars will bo obliged to ha sup
plied with adequate brakes and signal
ing devices and for one hour before
sunset and until one hour nfter sun
rise, two white lights must be displayed
In front of the car and one rear red
light, with a side light to show the car
number. Motorevcles shall have, nno
front white light besides the rear red.
The ordinance will also propose that
automobiles while passing street cars
loading or unloading passengers, bIhiII
low o'own to six miles an hour.

that mediation under the existing law
had failed and that arbitration had been
rendered impossible by the attitude of
the men, I considered it my duty to
confer with the representatives of both
the railways and. the brotherhoods and
myself offer mediation, not as an arbi
trator but merely as spokesman of the
nation, in the interest of justice, in
deed, and as a riend of both parties,
but not os judgo, only as the representa
tive of one hundred millions of men,
women and children who would pay the
price, the incalculable price, of loss and
suffering should these few men insist
upon approaching and concluding the
matters in controversy between them
merely as employers nnd employes, rath
er than as patriotic citizens o'f the Uui
ted States, looking before and nfter
and accepting the larger responsibilty
which the public will put upon them.
"It seemed to me, in considering the
subject matter of tho controversy, that
(he whole spirit of the time and the
preponderant evidence of tho recent eco
nomic experence spoke for the eight
hour day. It has been adjudged by the
thought and experience of recent years
a thing upon which society is justified
in in insisting as in the interest of
health, efficiency, contentment and a
general increase of economic vigor. The
whole presumption of modem exper
ience would, it seemed to me, be in its
favor, whether there was arbitration or
not, and the-debatable points to settle
were those which arose out of the nc
CChtance of the eipht hour ilnv rntlier
than those which affected its establish-1
meat. I therefore proposed tlint the
eight hour day be adopted by the rail
way managements and put into practice
for the present ns a substitute for the
existing 10 hour basis of pay and serv
ice; that 1 should apopiut, with the
permission of congress, a small commis
sion to observe the results of the
change, carefully studying the fiirures
of the altered operating costs not only,
but also the costs of lubor under which
the men worked and the operation of
their existing agreements with the rail
roads with instructions to report the
facts as they found them to the con
gress nt the earliest pssible day. but
without recommendation: and thiit. aft
er the facta had been thus disclosed,
an adjustment should in Bomo orderly '
manner be sought of all the matters now I
left unadjusted between the railroad
managers and the men.

"I unhesitatingly offered the friend

railway managers to see to it that jus

"The representatives of the brother

resentatives of the railroads declined to
accept it. In the face of what I can
not but regard as the practical cer

obliged to accept the eight hour day

"I yield to no man in firm adher

to a sudden crisis in this particular
dispute nnd the country has been caught
unprovided with any practicable means
of enforcing that conviction in practice,
(hy whose fault we will not stop to in
quire." A situation had to be met
whose elements and fixed conditions
were indisputable. The practical and pa
triotic course to pursue, as it seemed to
me, was to secure immediate peace by
conceding the one thing in the demands

What He Recommends. -
"Having failed to bring the parties
to this critical controversy to accom
modation, therefore, I turn to you,
deeming it clearly our duty as public
servants to leave nothing undone that
we can do to safeguard the life and in
terests of the nation. In the spirit of
such a purpose, I earnestly recommend
the following legislation:
"First, immediate provision for
the enlargement nnd administrative re
organization of the interstate com
merce commission along the lines em
bodied in the bill recently' passed by
the house of representatives and now
awaiting action by the senate; in or
der thut the commission may be en
abled to deal with the many great and
various duties now devolving upon it
with a promptness and thoroughness
which are with its present constitution
and means of action practically impos
sible. "Second, the establishment of an
eight hour day as the legal basis alike
of work and wages in the employment
of all railway employes who are ac
tually engaged in the work of operat
ing trains in interstate transportation.
"Third, the authorization of the an-
pointment by tho president of a small
uony oi men iu unserve me ucmui ir
suits in experience of the udoption of
the eight hour day in railway transpor
tation alike for the men and for rail
roads; its effects in the matter of oper
ating costs, in the application of the ex
isting practices and agreements to the
new conditions and in all other prac
tical aspects; with the provision that
the investigators shall report their con-j
elusions to the congress at tho earliest
possible date but wtihout recommendu-1
Hon us to the legislative action; in or
der that the public may learn from an
unprejudiced source just what actual
development-s have ensued.
About Increased Kates.
"Fourth, explicit approval by the
congress of the consideration by the in
terstate commerce commission of an in
crease of freight rutos to meet such
additional expenditures by the railroads
as may have been rendered necessary by
the adoption of the eight hour day'and
which have not been offset by admin
istrative readjustments and economies,
should the facts disclosed justify the
"Fifth, an amendment of the exist
ing federal statute which provides for
the mediation, conciliation and arbitra
tion ot such controversies as the present

"And,' sixth, the lodgement in the
hands of the executive of the power in
case of military necessity, to take con
trol of such portions and such rolling
stock of the railways of the country as
may be required for military use and to
operate them for military purposes, with
authority to draft into the military ser
vice of .the United States such train
crews and administrative officials as
the circumstances require for their safe
and efficient use.

it should be necessary for purposes of

now unforseen, ample means of trans

red in this matter should be carefully
and explicitly limited in cases of mili
tary necessity, but inall such cases it
should be clear and ample.

dently was greatly impressed, as ho
wrote the following to his brother:
"This is one of tho greatest countries
1 ever got into. I came over here ex
pecting to see a backwoods logging
town populated with lumberjacks. But
I find four or five little cities that any
community would be proud of. All tho
principal streets arc paved and there
are all the conveniences enjoyed by all
the valley towns. Instead of lumbor
jncks, I find the finest people in tho
state. It is a wonderful country ami
the opportunities are unlimited."
