YOUR LATEST ON
THE COMING ''DOWNTOWN" SUBWAYS
What will the straphanger get out
of the $250,000 traction and subway
report coming out next month?
Whattw4ll the city treasury get? And
what will the men who run the trac
tion lines,- motormen and -conductors,

men will seek answers for when the
big report comes along next month.
, The report, at one time expected by
the middle of November, then put off
until the first week in December, Is
not now expected until the middle of

says it will call for four subways.

recommended will run from Division

st. to Racine av., iy2 miles, (3) from
the loop southwest under Chicago
river, iy2 miles, (4) from the loop
northwest 1 miles.

very congestion they wefe supposed
to relieve. I shall discuss this mat

when the big report is handed in. We
might as well face the fact that we
are going in for extensive building of
these insanitary tubes. In NewYork
our visiting aldermen found subways
haven't ended congestion at alL
Straphangers, packed and jammed
