EVERYTHING FOR MEN
Want New Paving, Better
Street Car Service and
Cheaper Taxicab Rates in
A large crowd was in attendance
at the meeting of the South Side
cittl4 last night to hear reports 'of
tlth: various ccltlnittees who have
bhtn working on matters Ipertaining
ti improvemellnts otn the south side.
In discussing the paving proposi
tion, a Harrison avenue business
man, after apologizing to the effect
that he was "not a socialist, but a
'good' republican.' shouted: "I do
not believe we will ever get Harri
son avenue paved until, we have
another socialist administration, and
I hope that I will have an oppor
tntity to vot.e for the socialists at
the next election."
'IThe declaration of the speaker
brought forth many shouts and much
hand-clapping fromt a number of
"lOw-brewed and villainous-appear
iag" mnembers of the club andi the
demionstrat ion was only stopped
wh\en ex-alayor Iiane looked appeal
ing to Chairman Bacorn. who rapped
loudly I'for order and declared that.
lth paving ttmatter would be laid over
until a later meeting.
Mayor Tom Stodden was present
during the early part of the meet
ing. but as one south sider stated,
"had been studying the horoscope
and had disappeared before the dis.
cussion became real interesting."
Much dissatisfaction was express
ed by inltay of the speakers, who re
side on ilarrison avenue, with a plan
of paving a 16-loot strip on each
side of the astreet and having the
Englewood street car tracks laid in
the c enter of the avenue. It was
declared that the experience of Flor
ence avenue residents in having the
snow and filth swept front the carl
tracks into the gtutter and on to the
sidewalks, did not aplpeal to the iHar
rison avenuites and they would have
none of It.
Otne of the argu.ments in favor of
ha.t'ing the street cars ont Harriison
a;veIinue was the fact that the cars
run so seldom, their presence would
I:ardly I),e noticed, as there would
neve\'r i)e ilmore than one car on the
street at a titile.
The colnltittee which was ap
pointed at the last mieeting to loon
into the mattler of fire protection
fori districts outside of the city
linints, imade its report and another
committee consisting of residents
from thei various additions was
illnaied to arrange for a mass meet
ing, at which time the subject would
bi, conlsidered further.
The coulmittee on taxicab fares
and regulations reported that an
ordinance covering the subject was
incorporated in the city statuttes,
but had not been heard of since the
sotialist, admtinistrattion of I 911
1915, during which period the ordi
nance had beenl passetl and enforcedl.
It was shown that the ordinance
regulates fares to be charged by the
taxicabs not to exceed $1 within the
city limits and 50 cents within a
12-block limit. For several years
past, taxicab operators hatve been
using Iheir ownu jutdgiient as to
charges an!ld tile soulti siders are
complaining that thle price for this
service is getting altogiether too

bought a quart of "moonshine" from
a friend on the street, and treated
Mr. Wilson to several drinks. lHe
relnmembers, however, that prior to
last night he possessed .$50, and that
tod.la lie is a pauper.
The old llllln was found lying, unl
conscious and bloody, upon the side
walk by a piaserby. James Pardee of
116 West Galena street. Pardee
phoned the police and Chief Murphy
and Mlike O'.Donnell respoyded to the
call. Murphy says that there was
as ilncll as a quart of blood on the
walk inl which the old man lay, and
that liltle gobs of flesh and hair
which had been kicked off of his
head lay near him.

Ownership of Railroads
and Restoration of Free
Speech in United States.
By A. B. GILBERT.
St. Paul, Minn.-Perhaps one of
the strongest of the resolutions passed
by the .convention of the national
committee of tile Nonpartisan league,
which met here last week, was that
urging a return to a peace-time basis
in matters involving free speech..
The week, previous Congressman
Davey of Ohio introduced a bill, said
to have the backing of Attorney Gen
eral Palmer. which would give the
prosecutors and judges arbitrary
power to determine what is seditious.
Leaguers fear, with good reason,
that this bill, like its forerunner, the
espionage act, is designed not so
much to "get" enemies of the country
as to put a. gag on liberal opinion.
Not knowing what was seditious or
what might be construed in the heat
of war feeling, liberal editors every
where had to compromise on their
fight against special privilege. On
the other hand, no proved enemy of
the country was ever brought to jus
tice through the espionage act.
The farmer leaders ask that if
there must be an espionage, the law
should state plainly "that neither
the government nor the courts call
use the act to interfere with advo
cacy of changes in laws and consti
tutions by orderly means." Such a
proviso would destroy the evident
.purpose of the Davey bill.
A resolution was moved from the
floor and passed congratulating Pres
ident A. C. Townley' personally and
pledging the loyalty of the national
committee to him in the fight being
waged in lhe interests of the farmers.
North Dakota was congratulated
on the carryhig out of the league pro
grain and the program was recoom
moended to all other states.
Among other noteworthy resolu
tions were the following:
Extending the hand of fellowship
to organized labor and affirming be
lief in the right and necessity of o'
ganization, and collective bargaining.
giving labor a voice in the control of
industry and approving co-operation
of farmers and labor in politics;
Condemning the use by the govern
ment of injunctions against labor un
ions, especially in the coal strike,
and pointing out that the govern
.,meint should have solved the coal
shoritage by taking over the mines for
governlment operation pending an
a.justment of the dispute between
i'lt labor unions and mine operators,
and congratulating Governor Frazier
on his statesmanlike policy in secur
ing fuel for North Dakota by this

The plaintiff is asking for $500
