This long train of steel cars, rolling in twenty hours from one to the other of the two greatest cities in America, is a credit to this country and its rail- road men. It carries you through a_ thousand miles of intensive indus-j try and farming, one-third of the country's width.

Those four city names mean everything that is solid, pow- erful, and heaven knows how many billions of American dollars. This railroad is an almost straight line cut through the heart of the east. You must travel over it to see the inside of Uncle Sam's pocket. You have two hours and forty minutes in Chicagq, where you change from the Santa Fe to the Pennsylvania, traveling from the> Pacific to the Atlantic. And in 160 n.tnutes spent in Chicago you can see a great deal. A city forever restlessly building and a park system man- aged for the people, w-hose children play on the grass, not for the J as sn New York City. Great steel works and 90 cent of the nation's packing indus- try. A wonderful waterfront, equal- ed the world, stupendous business buildings and, most valu- able of all, absolute discontent with everything accomplished thus far.

Ruth hit for the circuit in the first, .third and sixth innings and smashed half a dozen world series records by his perform- ance. Hoyt pitched tight ball in the pinches for the winners while St. Louis used Rhem, Reinhart, H. Bell, Hallahan and Keen in the box.

Perhaps Samuel Insull, who rais- es good horses and owns Chicago's light and power, will provide an imitation of sunlight for those two most magnificent equestrian statues in all the world. Nothing has ever been done and nothing like them can ever be done again, for the individual fighting man is replaced'by the demon in a gas mask, and the war horse is gone to make room for the airplane and the tank.

Roenius, president and general manager of the company stated, was decided up- on to permit the company to meet the rapidly increasing demand for ts products. Proceeds of the stock sale will furnish working capital ror the handling of a larger volume 'f business and will permit expan- ion of the company's productive 'acilities as needed. First Public Stock Sale The company will make the first ffering of the new shares .locally n the hope of retaining the stock wneiship almost entiiely in Wis- onsin Rapids. The new stock issue ffers the general public its first pportunity to participate in the wnership of the concern, which itherto has been held almost en- ircly by a very small group, nearly 11 of whom are active in the busi- ess. The American Carbonic Machin- ry company has been one of tha utstanding successful industrial oncerns of the community. The ex- cnt of its growth is indicated by ie steady increase in its annual olume of business, from approxi- mately in 1898 to over last year.> Established in 1893 by the late E. Itoenius as the Grand Rapids Foun- dry company, the concern, for a number of years, devoted itself chiefly to repair work for nearby mills, and ordinarily employed only two men. Ice Machines Built Success 0. R. Roenius, the present presi- dent and general manager, became associated with the company in 1S98. It was not until 1907, however, that a start was made in the line of production to which the company owes its present success. In that year the first ice machine of the Car- bonic Safety type was turned out last night took affirmative action on two important ordinances. Under the provisions of one of them peddlers and itinerant order takers will be compelled to pay a daily license fee of S25. The or- dinance makes exception of farmers who come to the city to sell their produce. The second ordinance provides a method for the financing of sewer and water extensions in thinly set- tled parts of the city without burd- ening the city treasury. Zone Commission Named Other action taken by the council included: Approval of Mayor Mead's ap- pointment to the city zoning com- mission of r'rank Henry, Earl Bos- seit and L. E. Nash, and election by the council of John Roberts to membership on this commission, which also includes the mayor, the president of the park board, and the city engineer. Ratification of Mayor Mead's ap- pointment of John Nilles to succeed Hugh W. Goggms as supervisor for the Eighth ward. Oidenng in of lights in the alley back of Second stieet north and First street south, between Vine street and the easo side market square. The council received a message from Mayor Mead vetoing the ac- tion taken at the last meeting or- dering Fred Panter to construct 150 feet of sidewalk to serve a resident of a side street. The Mayor de- clared the action unfair to Mr. Panter and said that it would set an undesirable precedent. Scope of Law in Doubt Adoption of the ordinance requir- ing a fee of per day from ped- dlers and order takers came only af- ter extended discussion in which many doubts were raised as to the scope and intention of the ordinance. While the ordinance apparently covers all per.sons peddling goods or soliciting orders by house-to- liouse canvass there apeared to be some doubt in the minds of many of ;he aldermen as to how far it should be applied. When the roll was taken duplicate of one which has been suc- cessfully applied in the city of Mani- towoc. Atty. H. W. Goggins appeared be- fore the council with a lequest for action on the case of George Jack- son, an invalid, and his 12-year-old son, who have been city charges for I the last six years. Mr. Goggins ap- I peared in behalf of Mrs. Edith whose compensation for caring for Mr. Jackson was recently reduced from to per month. The city must either restore the old rate of compensation or make other provis- ion for Mr. Jackson's care, Mr. Gog- gins said. Mayor Mead announced that he would appoint a committee from the council to investigate the 1327 ESTIMATES PROVIDE FOR BIG CITY DEBT SLASH CITY AND SCHOOL EXPENSES REDUCED BUT DEBT PAY- MENTS SCHEDULED MAKE TAX BOOST NECESSARY case.

Holding that the only Is wHUngntM to believe IOIIM- tbing when there is no evidence for believing it, the speaker declared this trait is exemplified today in re- ligion, politics, groups, sects and parties. "We even go so far as to say who- ever challenges dogma is dislojAl. Loyalty to the constitution is not to think of swallow it whole. The secret service will get after you if you don't." Scoring "selling Dr Meik- kjohn declared that its practice in churches and universities constitutes no safe endorsement but that the system is the "-jsing of men's pre- judices and weaknesses to introduce ideas for the private gain of the manipulator." introduction of this machine maik- cd the start of the development of a large manufacturing business. In 1912 the name of the company was changed to1 the American Caibonic Machinery company, and the entire resources of the concern concentrat- ed upon the manufacture of refrig- erating machinery and equipment. At the present time the company has machines in use in practically all of the large cities of the country. Chicago alone has 250 machines, and such buildings as the new Union would compel persons of small means to build their homes on re- latively high priced lots in the well built-up parts of the city or go without sewer and water service. Frees City of Burden The ordinance provides that no petition for sewer and water shall be grantsd in cases wheie there is not one immediate consumer of water for every 66 feet of main re- quirtd, except that citizens who de- sire sewer and water service and who live on streets where there are Detroit, Oct. to the forty-sixth annual convention of the American Federation of Labor assembled for their fourth business session today with the knowledge that pulpits of the protestant churches of Detroit were closed to heir leaders. Unofficially advised that the Federal Council of Churches of Christ in America, the Detroit min- isterial association and the Y. M. C. A. had rescinded invitations to convention leaders to fill Detroit pul- pits next Sunday, William Green, president of the federation of labor, issued a formal public statement charging the revocations were in- spired "through the influence of the Detroit Chamber of Commerce and the building trades association."

Total to be raised by direct Big Debt Reduction The new budget, although total- ling nearly more than that adopted a year ago, and requiring an increase in the tax rate of three- tenths of one percent, shows reduc- tions in all items except those which apply to the city debt. The school budget has been trimmed about and the budget for city ex- penses has been reduced about 000, but the city debt budget has been increased from for pay- ments of interest and principal, as provided in the budget adopted a year ago, :o This is in line with the policy of wiping cut the city's unfunded obligations, and will make possible, Mayor Mead declared last night, a reduction in the tax rate next year or the year after. The budget, as adopted last night, provides for a reduction of in the city's debt, and interest pay- ments amounting to a total of 493.34. In voting approval of the budget, however, the council author- ized the city clerk to increase or cle- j ciease the item of notes payable to make the budget conform exactly to the funds which a 3.5 per cent tax levy will provide. This action, which is taken each year, is necessary be- cause it is impossible to tell in ad- vance the exact amount of county and states taxes which will ba charged against the city.
