PITY MANAGER PLAN RUNS.
' AMUCK BEFORE COMMITTEE
! The city manager plan of govern
ment went bumping on the rocks
yesterday when it reached the judi
ciary committee of the council.
; An attempt to vote the proposi
tion up or down in the committee re
sulted in this manner: For: Werner,
Buck, Kimball, Walker and , Rodri
guez. Against: Coughlin, Blaha, W.
J. Lynch, Hrubec, Norrjs, Miller and
I Aid. Charles E. Merriam, who in
troduced the measure in the coun
cil, spoke for it before the commit
tee. He said it was to provide for
the election" of the mayor by the
council, which body was to be cut o
a half of its size.
I Aldl Coughlin -of the First ward,
who led the opposition against the
1 measure, put his case this way:
"We recently gave the ladies one"
Of the greatest things they ever had
- 4-the" right to vote. Now, gentlemen,
it would not.be fair to the women
to take away the greatest pleasure
connected with that franchise, the
light, to vote for the mayor of. Chi
cago. Therefore I am against it.
" "We have built the greatest city
in the world by use of the jmrty form
6f government. Why destroy this
. "What they want to do is to go
to SeaCrs-Roebuck's or Siegel-Coop-er's
and get us a mayor with busi
ness methods. We don't want a Sie-gel-Cooper
mayor. Neither do we
want a little South Park board coun
cil. What ordinary citizen can get
