ACTION IN PLACING
Civic and Business Bodies
Approve Evening Ledger's
Plan of Making Clear Of
ficials' Stand on Transit
Prominent citizens who have been Iden
tified In many civic movements, business
men who realize that real rapid transit
Is essential to actual progress, and mem
bers ot vatlous progressive organizations
Indorsed the Hvknino: Ledger's action In
placing every member of Councils on'ree-
ord on the Taylor transit plan.
Tho attitude ot the people's represen
tatives, many declared, should bo known
In advance, so their constituents might
learn whether thc wore being actually
lcprcscntcd. The Kvknino LcDoen's ac
tion In furnishing the people with an
Index to the local legislators' sentiment,
therefore, was warmly commended.
It was pointed out by many persons
who are active In civic movements that
Councils In tho past resorted to subter
fugo when asked to go squnrcly on record
concerning anything for the welfare ot
Those who nrc still noncommittal on
the Taylor transit plan will be asked to
declare themselves, and should they re
fute steps will be tnken In retaliation by
business organizations In every part of
It Is contended there Is no excuse for
any Councilman pretending to have the
welfare ot the people at heart to remain
passive on a question which so vitally
Interests the people.
In view of the clty-wldo enthusiasm on
tho subject and tho Hvenino Ledger's
poll showing that Taylor transit Is
favored by tho majority of Councllmcn,
many persons contend that no obstruc
tionist can stem the tldo at this stago
of the game.
Several business organizations will meet
this week nnd nppolut committees to call
on those Councllmen who are endeavoring'
to remain neutral. Should these members
of Councils still adhere to their passlyo
nttltude, steps will be taken to compel
definite assertions on the question.
In the Northeast it Is known that Bev
el nl organizations will go on record as
opposed to the continuance of John M
JIcKlnley, Jr., In Select, and Fred
Schwartz, Jr , as their councllinatilc rep-,
rcscntatlvet. These are the only two moil
who favored the Costello brand df transit.
Following ate a fow of tho views from
pt eminent men on the question:
Albert IJ. Turner, who has taken a
prominent part lu numerous successful
movements for civic betterment, snld:
"Tho Evenino LuDtiKit's tnovo wns
quite ns bright an undertaking its could
have been made. The paper hns done
n good piece of work in educating tho
public, which Is the real boss of city af
fairs. Where genuine public sentiment Is
inudo as fnr reaching ns this, thero can
he no doubt as to the result.
"No politician Is utrald of unintelligent
and sporadic sentiment," he said, "but
all politicians realtzo the effect of an
educated public sentiment. This Is lr
rcstlble. Those ,wbo ically believe this
can have an Ima'glhntlon to see an entire
new system an accomplished fact within
a comparatively short time,"
Another who warmly commends the
RvENiN'a LEDaca's action lu obtaining
tho Councllmnnlo Interviews on rapid
tumult is Judge James Uorman, of tha
JUDGE GOBJIAN'S APPROVAL.
"It was a most excellent Idea for tho
KvNiN-a Ledoer to put the Councllmen
on record," Bald Judge Gorman. "By
this means aro the people enabled to
know how their representatives stand on
the question, Tho transit question la 11
matter of such vltul Importance to the
growth of Phlhrdelphla that 'It was a
laudable undertaking to gather the op!n
Ions of our law-makers so thut the people
might know what to expect.
"How do I stand on the transit ques
tion? For Director Taylor's plan nnd
opposed to Mr. Costcllo's. Mr Tnor
has studied and vroiked over the proO
lem and ho knows Philadelphia's trunstt
needs thoroughly. I hoard him speoi;
lost night before tlie Oak Je Improve
ment Association and havo rend his ni ti
des. I am In entire nccord with him
nnd his comprehensive plan, which em
braces every lection of the city, mid
whl-li, together with housing, hygienic
and other Improvements, will make Phila
delphia the jjrcqter city It Is going to be."
That the KVEXINU Ledoer had accom
plished a good work in putting Cojncll
men on lecord as to their stand on the
Taylor transit plans was the opinion ot,
former Judga Dlmner Jleeber, expressed
"I think It was a very creditable thing
to do," said Judge Beeber, "It Is well
to know bow Councllmen stand on the
proposition. It Is always proper to learn
tho sentiment of perrons who will pass
on tho value of a proposition.'-'
"The transit question was a matter of
such public intetest that It was an excel
lent Idea to put the Councllmen on ro
prd," said J. B. W. Holton, piesldent or
the Jloritlmo IJxchange. "The people
must know the opinions uf the legisla
tors who are to decide the Issue."
"I have not studied the Costello ordi
nance, but uin in reasonable familiarity
with Ulrettor Tailor's plan, which com
monds itself very strongly! to me," Mr.
Holton continued. "'It covers the needs
of thk entire city, and Is In lino with the
spirit of progress, whereas the Costello
ordlnance'is not, having the objectionable
feature of sectional development In one
