SUBWAY ORDINANCE MAY BE
WRECKED IN VITAL PLACES
Subway ordinance urged by Aid.
Capitain, head of transportation
committee of council, will be wreck
ed in vital places if recommendations
of Aldermen Merriam, Buck and
Kennedy go through. Changes want
ed by these insurgents were brought
in to committee this afternoon.
Instead of "three engineers" for a
subway commission, the rebel alder
men want two engineers and one hu
man being, one "person."
Naming of the commission shall be
done not by Capitain's transportation
committee alone, but by that com
mittee "and the finance committee
jointly."
Maybe it won't be a subway com
mission at all. Maybe it will be a
sunshine travel committee when it
gets done, according to the new re
commendations. Sec. 2 of ordinances
is amended to provide that commis
sion shall report on unified operation
6f surface and elevated lines and the
digging of a subway ''or any other
appropriate manner" of solving the
transit problem. Instructions are to
report on "any plan" instead of a
"subway plan."
Capitain's ordinance said "com
missioners shall accept the valua
tions of the respective surface lines
as established under existing city or
dinances." In place of it, Merriam,
Buck and Kennedy want this: "Com
missioners may adopt such valua
tions of properties as they may deem
fair and just in accordance with
sound engineering practice."
Part 7 of Sec. 3 ordered commis
sion to report on "a financial plan
covering investments already made,
based upon present valuation of sur
face Hnes." This is crossed out to
read: "A plan for financing the pro
jects recommended."
One more amendment calls for "a
report on the benefits of through
routing of steam lines and co-ordination
of surface and elevated service
therewith" -
