here, has often said I ought to do
something of the kind and we'll see

your ward here at your house and

STREET CAR MEN REPLY TO
JOHN M. GLENN'S CHARGE '
John M. Glenn, secretary Illinois
Manufacturers' ass'n, says street car
service in Chicago is rotten because
the street car men's union has de
cided to wreck the companies and
make the people who nde the cars
hate the companies. In an editorial
in-the Manufacturers' News Glenn
charges sabotage, a deliberate
scheme on the part of the car men
to run the roads to destroy the prof
its of the company.
Street car men point to Glenn as a
"little brother of the rich," a hanger
on of Marshall Field & Co. and the
State street department stores, be
sides Sears, Roebuck & Co. and other
firms that need Glenn and the Illi
nois Manufacturers' ass'n for lobby
ing at Springfield and Washington.
The Union Leader will print an edi
torial tomorrow saying Glenn doesn't
know what he s talking about on
street Tailway operation and "had
better go back to lobbying for the interests."
"Glenn's editorial is the wildest,
flannel-mouth utterance that has
come from any supposedly respon
sible citizen in Chicago in many
days," said L. D. Bland, editor of the1
Union Leader. "There is only oneT
explanation of it That is, Glenn ;
doesn't like the way the labor lobbj-'
at Springfield has shown him up on
child labor laws, the ten-hour law
for women and other legislatlon'big
business doesn't like." "
Glenn's connection with the Na-A
tional Manufacturers' ass'n and its
exposure in the use of money in con-
gress and its condemnation by Pres-1
Ident Wilson as "insidious" will Be1
cited in the Union Leader editorial
tomorrow, Saturday. ' '
