today to investigate the .rial fa, m,
which threatens Chicago and deter So
whether or not any persons, firms or
corporations Cook counti' an- en
jrngeii in a criminal conspiracy to bring
about a coal shortage for the purpose
of manipulating the price.
Ileasons why. In his opinion, the city
should join in the fight against the nl
leged exorbitant $10,000,000 nnnunl
rentals paid to the underlying com
panies by the V. It. T. have been pre
pared by Councilman Joseph I. Oaff
ney. He probably will flic lliem with the
clerk of Council today..
Mr. Oaffney stated before Council last
Tuesday, when his resolution to have
the city join in the business men's fight
ngnlnst the rentals was defeated, thnt
he was going to make public his re-miis
for voting for the resolution.
Mr. (laffney's position Is that the
fare ipiestlon will never bv satlsfai'lorilv
settled until the "back-breaking" re.it-
nls piiul to the underlying companies
He contends the city solicitor Is not
directly attacking the excessive rentals,
nnd thnt the Cnlted Iluslness Mci's As
sociation nnd the Cliveden Improvi
ment Association have not the funds nor
the prestige In court thnt the city has
to wage this fight.
