OUbertson. . New York. Dear Sir: Your favor of the 24th la just at band and has been read with interest I fear my editorial paragraph must not have been entirely clear for your comment is not directed to the point I bad in mind when writing It. I do not complain that there is any incon-- sfstency fn coupling (he Initiative, Referendum and Recall with the Com mission form of city government. That ta to say if one boHevca In these devices I do not see why they should not go with a "short ballot" as well as with a long one. is not the theory behind all these direct government devices inconsistent with the thvory behind the "short ballot?" That Is the point I wanted to bring out. Take the case of the State of Kansas, for example. Thn people now elect all st .itcomccr8, Inclufllng Railroad Commiesioner, insurance Com- mlssionrr, Df .d scvoral oihcrs thnt in many sttites are appointed by the Governor.

Iik«':.v to make. Hut the theory of ilio Initiative, Referendum and Kccull is thai, "gpvern- nipnt must be restored to tlic ju-oplo," that thu representatives of the people cannot be trusted and therefore the people themselves must ru!i9 di- rc-ctly and not through repri-spnlatlvr agency when It can be avoided. It seems to mo these two theories arc Inconsistent. I'ersonally, I believe In the short ballot. I bellcvo that to vest in the Governor the power of appointing half a dozen or more of the mltior State officers would not only enhance the dignity and importance of the Governorship and thus .make It attractive to the highest grade men, which It is not now, but thr.t It would be likely to give the stale hotter service. But I feel quite sure that If 1 should becotnc a candidate for Governor on that platform, I would at once be attacked by the advocates of direct deinocracy as seeking to rob the people of their right to elect their own officers, and ot seeking to build up a personal political machine. And from the point of view of those who believe that representative government Is a failure and that the best system of government is that which Is nearest to a direct democracy. It seems to me they would be right. Very respectfully, CHAS. F. SCOTT. In response to which came the following: SHORT R.\LLOT—RL'FEKE.XDOr. Some weeks ago the Register published an editorial paragraph to the effect that the Short liallot and the • Initiative, Utrerenduni and , Recall seemed to be basrd un contrddlctory theories and wp were curious ta learn how those who Bupported them both could reconcile their apparent Inconsistency. None of the newspapers In Kansas Which are engaged In the Interesting feat of riding these two hobby horses, one pointed one way and one the other, responded to our appeal for knowledge, but we promptly received a letter from the Assistant Secretary of "ThB Short Ballot Organization " the headquarters of which are in New York City. As this organization unfortunately is not on the Register sub scriptlon list some unknown friend must have done us the honor to send a copy of the paper, perhaps with a request that some expert be asked to give answer to our modest paragraph which the friend aforesaid did not feel equal to giving himself. The let ter which, since it comes from one who makes a business of supplying information upon the subject, we take It may be published without violation of confidence, is as follows: November 24, 1911. lola "Register." ~ lola, Kansas. Gentlemen: In your issue of November liitli you^ BtatB that you have been waiting a Ions time for some of the advocates of the Short Ballot movemeiit to explain how It is consistent with the initiative. Referendum, etc. In order to not keep you' waiting any longer, I will undertake to enlighten you. The object of thp Short Ballot is not only to center responsibility In the RoVprninent. but also to make the duties of Individual citizens so simple and comprehensive that the humblest of them will bp able to take a real part In the government Instead of going through the motions of democracy, as Is always the case when tho government Is complex. The Short Ballot In other words, makos for directness of contact between tho citizens and the govprnmcnt. I'nder normal conditions, which would probably mean 99 per cent of the time, the direct publicity and more thorough underst^indlng of conditions which is possible for the citizens to have, is sufficient In Itself to compel respect for their wishes from the rep- Once in' a while. resentative officers, however, a man is elected to office under misapprehension as to j his qual Iflcation or his sincerity, and the most Intense publicity fails to have any cf- - feet upon him. It may even happen that the majority In a governing body may be afflicted with this lack of seiisitivenesB. It is in such emergencies as this that the Initiative and Referendam become important. In these emergencies also if you have a Short Ballot, the situation is so clear that the way Is open for an effective use of the Initiative and Referendum. The relation of the two things is very well illustrated in the Recall election in Wichita. Kansas. In this city, as you doubtless know, a body of five men are In control of the city's affairs. In other words you have, a Short Ballot government. But it so happened that under a peculiar set of circumstances the Mayor and two other mem bers of the Commission had proved very disappointing public ser^-ants. It this Juncture we have a very useful illustration of the workings of the Short Ballot Publicity in itself In this peculiar case was not sufficient to force the Mayor and his colleagues to withdraw from their objectlonoble position. But note this: The citizens of WichlU were able to put their finger upon the very mrti who were recponslble for counteracting their wishei, and when they were given an opportunity under the Recall, they plucked two of them and retired them to private life. It was the unmlstak- ^able flxing of responsibility under Short Ballot conditions which made It pouible to use one of the measureii for popular control which you refer to by inference in jour editorial. The fact thtfl the Recall, the Initiative and the Referendum have been ao very Infrequently used In the Commission Governed cities shows conclusively to our minds that Short Sallot conditions render them unnecessary in the vast majority of cases. But we are not claiming infallibility for the Short Ballot and we are willing to admit that It sometimes fails. ' It is thrn that the special measures for direct iwpular control come into play. Yours very truly. H. S. GILBKRTSOX, Assistant Secretary.

Scott, lola Daily Register, lola, Kansas. ~ Dear Sir: 1 am very glad to get your letter of .November 28th and to have a more complete statcmeiit of your views on ho Initiative, Referendum ond Recall and tho Short Ballot. You arc quite right In saying that ho theory behind the direct govern- m<nt devices is dllferent from the h ory behind the short ballot, but 1 not quite ready to admit that In practice there would be as a rule, any Ki at antagonism between the two. ir the advocates ot the Initiative and Itcferendum were Inclined to overwork these instruments and really to make them means for popular leglsla- iltn in place of the regularly constituted body they would certainly be mrst antagonistic to the short ballot principle, which alms to preserve representative government as opposed to direct popular government. The writer once heard Mr. William U'Ren of Oregon, state that the ultimate object oi his group in Oregon to restore representative government. I. e., to discipline the legislature into th? conviction that the people are the real rulers. Oregon has been, and still is a long ballot state, and undoubtedly this accounts for much of ih.^ unrepresentative character or the !cE:Elatures. If they could have gotten a short ballot system years ago, is probable that they would have h.n.l much less use for the Initiative iiu'i Ri"ferpndum. rnfortunalely. how ever. It seems that the people of Ore- Rcn have come to distrust the legislature as a matter of habit, and instead of taking steps to dignify the representatives by f;lvlng them respectable^ salaries and attracting a hlf:her grade of men to the office, they have been experimenting with these somewhat heterodox ideas. Personally, I believe that the Initiative and Referendum should be resorted to after everything else has failed. Let us try flrst a combinatloi: of corapletp responsibility and conililete publicity, if that breaks dov.n, it will be time enough then to employ the more direct Instruments of popular control. Yours very truly, H. S. G1LBERT80.V, Assistant Secretary^ i-'rom whlch^ It would api)ear that (he official organist of the Short Ballot propaganda dnds it difficult as the Rtglsicr docs to reconcile the theory behind that reform and that behind th'! direct democracy idea, so thnt our plea for enlightenment still stands.

Wichita Beacon: What would you thing of a physician who would dare diagnoses case from general appearances without taking the count of the pulse or placing his ear at the heart? What would you think of u mercantile agency that would attempt to fix the financial standing of a concern and give It proper rating, pufely from appearances, or rumor or prejudice? What would you think ot a chemist who would unhesliatingly pass judgment upon a metal from the ineii' hearsay of some man who held no scientific diploma? The answer Is obvious. And yet some of the politicians of the country do not hesitate to tell the ))eoplc all about the profits of the railways, giving mythical figures that come from Imaginative brains. And I ho people, usually cautious In dealing with their own business facts, accept without question the most fabulous statements about railroads. Prob ably there lare not many people in the land today who If asked about railroad earnings of last year woiild not immediately yell that earnings were greater and expenses less than ever before. .\nd yet the plain facts of indisput- ab'e, records are, that there was a great decrease in the revenues for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1911. And there was a great increase in operating expenses. Fortunately there are rell.ible statistics on the subject for those who wish to study the net results of railway economics showing that the railways of the CQUntry earned $32.87 per mile each da/ last year in carrying freight, passengers, mall and express. This was 19 cents per day less than for the fiscal year ending June- 30, 1910. This would be for all the railroads $17,000,000 less in revenues than the previous fiscal year yielded. Here's the other side: While revenues were going down at the rate of 19 cents per mile per doy. operating expenses were going up 65 cents per mlK per day. The total operating expenses were S2.1.58 per mile per day for the past year. For the fiscal year ending June 30, 1910, they v.-ere only $2193 per mile l>er da.v. The 65 cents per mile per day Increase In salaries, wages, fuel, sup- ulfes, repairs renewal of tracks, bridges, etc., amounts to the enormous Increase of $56,000,000 over the previous fiscal year. The net operating revenue, which Is the total operating revenue less operating expenses, averaged $10,29 per mile per day. Tuxes increased and revenue from outside operations such as boat and ferry lines, dining cars, I'tc. fell off, M that tlu' operating income—which Is net op(>ratlnR revenue with revenue from outside oiieia!lon<« added and taxes deducted—was S7 cent* |ier mile per day Ipbs than for the previous fiscal year. This amounted to a total decrease In operating-Income of over $75,000,000, or over qne- fourth of the total amount of net dividends paid by the railways for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1910., in view of these Indisputable fjicts from tho Washington bureau of rpil- way economics. Isn't It time for a more thoughtful study of the railway situation? A railroad Is governed by jiist.the same natural law that governs, all healthy business—It must take: In more money than It poys out.' Tho Beacon believes that the necessity of rate readjustment is rthe most most serious problem of 'thJ» present hour. Rates are too IflgU at some jminls, they are doubtless too low at other points. .Many dlsrriini- natlons have grown Mp which roll coinmunliles of their just comnienlal opportunities and their natural ;ar|- vuiitages. These diserlmlnatlons ran not be settled by Bweepltig r/'Holu- tions demanding the reduction of all frel ^'hf and passenger rates and the Immediate urrer.l and Imprisonment of all railroad presidents. Th"""' problems must be settled by Intelligent study not by bitter polltlral campaigns. The railroad -olTlelals will have to admit the right of stales to know and study facts properly" and In the right spirit. The pnbllc will have to,admIt the right of railw.iys fo reasonable profits, as well as (heir right to rest their case upon facts In sober tribunals and not upon theories or in hasty judgments of »»ale legislatures moved by political feeling. ' • You can't reduce the revenues •ot a railroad by unfriendly legislation and increase its operating expenses by the same power without wre^'ting it. The administrative tribunals wjiich find it popular to regulate railroads from a political point of view, owe It not only to the country but to the,.rail roads to grasp the significance o( official figures. A tribunal that establishes confis­ catory rates. Is acting just as •dishonorably as a railroad thst established unjust rates. ' The political officer who believes he can fix railroad rates out of his awn head. Is just as dangerous as the doc tor who seeks to diagnose a cas? of chest trouble without the aid of the stethescope and the other instruifien- talltles which govern diagnoses.* The rate making tribunal wjilch does not approach Its task with.- the same grave concern thnt characterizes railroad management is destructive. Official regulation of railroads will be a curse unless It cons'ldera Its duty two-fold-providing conditions under which railroads con gro^y Is just as Important as providing for equitable rates and proper srrvlft". You cannot cripple the rnlln'»ads without crippling the Industrial yro- greaa ot the country. Thp figures given out from the 'offl- clol source, tell thrlr own gfeve story and point the need of lnt>lll- gent and honest co-operailon betwei-u railroad officials ond rale making bodies.
