DAILY-COMMENTS ON
At last one candidate tells us what
lie will do to relieve the street rail
way situation.
Sweitzer says: "I would like to
work out the best possible programs
for the sake of the service."
Fine business, Bob. That program
will be just what we want if it turns
out to be just what we 'want.
A crafty politician was once run
ning for congress in an Ohio district
and didn't want to commit himself on
the money question.
But a fellow nailed him at a meet
ing one night and yelled out:
"How do you stand on the money
question?"
The candidate came to bat. "I am
glad the gentleman asked me that
question," he replied.. (Loud ap
plause.) "I want everybody within the range
of my voice to know exactly where
I stand on the money question."
(Loud cheers.) (Enthusiastic ap
plause.) (Renewed cheering.) f
"Fellow citizens," he shouted, when
the applause died down. "I AM ALL
RIGHT ON. THE MONEY QUES
TION." (Enthusiastic applause.)

Bob admits he is ALL RIGHT on the
street railway question.

Thompson, Olson, et al. Are they
