He wanted lo rail attention to

said, for tho awful accident In

would pxprenn rpprpt for what

would ho better npprecfated If.
Instead of putting out free hullo-

"Instead of perpetual croak-
! Ing," said Mr. Swanzy, "the Ad-
vertlser should say something
decent concerning tlip conditions
In San Francisco. It Is piohablo
that tho people of that city may
! never get to read the Advertiser
and will not generally kno- Its
petslmlstle remarks, hut they
have relatives and friends here
who do read It and would appro-
elate It If more interest was ex-
hlhlted In Hip sufferers."
According to the suggestions mado
this morning by the Chamber of Com

open up n special relief fund for nld
