or acquire by purchase, condemna

habitants of the city with ice."
"Thousands of poor people in the
city cannot buy ice because prices
are so high and so far above cost,"
said Aid. Kearns. "Whenever it was
proposed that the city make and sell
its own ice supply, attorneys have
shown it to be illegal because the city
has not yet been granted the specific
power by the legislature."
