TWO CENTS THE DAY BOOK TWO CENTS
WANTS CITY OWNERSHIP OF
The strike of ward politicians gar
bage team owners who want a dollar
more a day from the .city and who
picked the week before election to
pull their act, fizzled out at yester
day's council meeting when every
other clique sided against the City
Hall supporters who tried to pull the
raise through. The strike was point
ed at as an attempt to sandbag the
city out of $250,000.
Aid. Cullerton and Powers stood
with the contracting team owners.
Powers admitted he had helped place
several teams in the city service. Aid.
Kennedy advocate city ownership
of the garbage teams and wagons.
A letter from Armour & Co., Swift

and American started an active fight
to oust Aid. H. D. Capitain from his

with a Democrat with Hearst-Harri-con-Dunne
ideas about traction
All this is supposed to mean that
the next mayoralty campaign will be
fought with "municipal ownership"
as the cry of the Hearst faction. Just
what kind of municipal ownership
will be advocated by the Hearstites
has not been set forth as yet
It is generally conceded, however,
that if the Dunne faction does come
forward with a sound proposition ml
which will really guarantee munici-
pal ownership on sound financial
lines the support of the best element
of the city will go to that faction.
If their proposition is another line
of bunk, such as resulted in the or
dinance of 1907 under which the
street car lines are now operating,
their entrance into the municipal
ownership fight will only complicate
