Vol. 1, No. 250 Chicago, Monday, July 15, 1912. One Cent ,
PEOPLE SLIP ONE OVER.
Schenectady, N. Y., July 15.
This city is some het up today.
Also it believes in the recall of
judges, and wants to have the re
call in effect as soon as possible.
The reason for this is that one,
measly judge, named Chas. C.
Van Kirk, is all that is standing
between the sweating, heat-crazed
people and cheap ice.
Last winter, when the city res
ervoirs were frozen oyer, Mayor
Geo. R. Lunn had 30000 tons of
ice cut and stored.
When the first heat wave
struck the city at the beginning
of July Lunn announced that that
ice was for sale at just enough to
pay the cost of its cutting 25
cents.
The Ice Trust then was selling
ice at 40 cents, and it set up an
awful holler. Also it had a dealer
apply to Justice Van Kirk for a
temporary injunction restraining
the city from selling ice.
July 3 Van Kirk issued the
temporary injunction. Lunn got
around it Ly giving the ice away,
saying that he had had the ice cut
and stored lor the benefit of the
poor people of Schenectady and
that he was not going to see them
cheated.
Today Van Kirk not only made
the injunction against selling the
ice permanent, but also ordered
.that the city sell the icefat public
auction. There was noiargument
that the city's sellings of ice vio
lated any law.
At the forced sale the ice was
bid in by D. J. Sweeney, a friend
of Mayor Lunn, for $175. Sween-,
ey, according to the mayor, will
reimburse the city if or the cost of
harvesting the ice and will then
sell it to the poor at cost.
"We win," said the mayor.
"We will supply the ice to the,
people as we had originally,
planned, and if another fight is
made against us we are in a posi
tion to defy the courts." (
