MERRIAM RAPS SAM INSULL'S.
TRUST PRESS ADVERTISING
Sammy is maa,
Some folks are glad,
D'ye know what would likely appease
If the council would pass,
On his heat unit gas,
A million a year would please him.
Sammy InsuU's trust press adver
tising campaign to force the city
council into passing favorably on his
heat unit gas proposition was offi
cially buried as a rank failure yester
day by Aid. Merriam.
Merriam confirmed suspicions
that Sammy has been trying to put
one over on the people of the city
in his proposals to install mantle
burners in place of the flat flame
kind now in use and heat unit gas at
a small cut in price.
Merriam issued a hot statement
in reply to Insull's repeated claims
through the news columns of the pa
pers 'winch printed his advertise
ments, that the council was obstinate
and unreasonable because it wouldn't
give his carefully prepared scheme
for a change in gas stand an "O. K."
Sammy announced he was going to
treat with the state public utilities
commission in the fujjire.
If Sammy had been quiet, Merriam
would never have rsoaked his little
scheme as hard as he did yesterday.
But soon after the fias company's an
nual statement showed that the
year's profits were smaller than they
had been in the past, Insull romped
all over the front page of the trust
press with bitter denunciations of
the council which couldn't see his
heat unit plan as a reduction in the
price of gas.
This was too much for Merriam
and yesterday after Sammy had sub
sided, the following retort came from
the alderman of the 7th ward-
"The gas, oil and electric light
committee has not opposed the gas
