TO ABOLISH THE TAX BOARD.
Governor-elect Dunne will ask the
legislature to abolish the State Hoard
Many people believe that tho body
has outlived its usefulness.
The Governor-elect show his fear
lessness and absence of party bias In
this move, when It Is remembered
that In the closing of this board at tho
late election, but one Republican
was elected, Frank P. Martin of Wat
seka, In the Cannon district, an old
member. Four Democrats wero re
elected, D. E. Sullivan from the
Fourth district, Chicago; Louis D.
Hlrshelmer, from tho Jacksonville
district; A. W. Crawford, from tho
Springfield district, and H. G. Weber,
from the Vandalla district.
The six new Progressives are
Charles W. Socord, Chicago, Second
district; W. A. Mnlone, Chicago, Sev
enth district; Horry T. Nightingale,
Evanston, Tenth district; Fred H.
Ackerman, Elgin, Eleventh district;
George C. Tallcrday, Delvldere,
Twelfth district, and Isaac N. EvanB,
Mllledgevllle, Thirteenth district.
"Wo should have a taxing commis
sion Instead," says Governor-elect
Dunne, "properly selected and clothed
with sufllclent power to bring about
a change for the better and an equal
distribution of tho burden of taxa
tion. "Instead of meeting for forty daya
that board should sit through tho

DEATH OF PETER FORTUNE.
In tho denth of Peter Fortuno Chi
cago lost ono of Its very best citizens.
Identified with tho growth of tho city
from tho tlmo when Its population
and Influence wero small, ho kept
pace with It nnd took part In every
movement which Increased Its prom
inence and helped to mako Chicago
great. Not only In material and busi
ness nffalrs was Peter Fortuno nctlvo.
His charity knew no bounds. His
heart kept step with his groat brain
nnd his benefactions wero numerous
and unforgotable. Mr. Fortune was
modest and unostentatious In tho ox
treme. Ho never sought tho public
eye or cared for pralso. Simple In
his tastes, ho was generous to a
fault and an army of friends testify
to his many good qualities. In tho
business world no man was moro
highly respected. His name was a
synonym for honesty.
Mr. Fortune, who was a widower
for many years, leaves a daughter,
Miss Joanna Fortune and n sou, John
Petor Fortuno was bom at Round
town, County Wexford, not far from
Dublin, Ireland. When very young
he went to work for a grocer In Dub
lin, but left this employment to como
to the L'nlted States In ISS-l. Ho ob
tained a position with tho old Galena
railroad, now tho Chicago & North
western, In Its Chicago depot and held
It until 183C, when ho opened a groc
ery store at tho corner of Polk and
Desplalnos streets. Ho was nftor
wards for a tlmo connected with
tho famous old O'Neill brewery on
South Wator street, whero ho learned
tho brawory business. In 1S02 ho es
tablished tho Fortuno Brothers' Brew
er In partnership with his brother,
John. They browed alo exclusively
from 18C2 to 1870, when Fortuno
Brothers' commenced tho browing of
lager boer. They met with great suc

The enormous dividends paid to lu
stockholders by tho Telephone Trust
are wrung from tho pockets of the
people by excessive telephone charges.
Telephone rates must bo reducod
and In time they will bo.
Tho fact that one city council will
barter away the people's rights Is no
reason why succeeding council! should
do the same.
The fight for cheaper telephone
service will go on until It Is won.
Competition and lowor rates in the
telcphono field are demanded by the
peoplo of Chicago.
Hn ntrnnir la thltt fnnlltiv crrAurlnir
among oil classes of the community j
that tho efforts of tho tolephono trust
to stifle competition and keep up
rates will fall in tho long run.
What an awful combination this
telephone trust is.
It controls the telophone service in
every great city of the country.
It controls tho Western Union
It controls the General Electric
It controls tbe Western Electric
And it keeps up rates in order that
tho peoplo may bo milked of great
dividends for stockholders.
Tho water meter graft is Lobbing
its head up again.
It 1b proposed to tax every lot in
Chicago from $200 to $500 for water
meters, besides tho great expenso it
will entail upon all usors of water.
Chicago has an immense water
fund. It part of It was devoted to
wards building pumping stations at
tho lako end of evory section line in
Chicago there would bo no water f am
It la astonishing what men tbe
water meter peoplo can Influence to
their way of thinking.
Some men who ought to know bet
ter nro talking for water meters.
Moro than that tho "high pressure"
schomo Is up again.
According to some advocates it will
only cost thirty or forty millions of
dollars to install motors and a "high
pressure" system. Tho poor will have
to pny the cost.
With halt this sum additional pump
ing Btatlons could bo built which
would moro than supply tho demand.
A well known engineer who was ad
vocating "high presure" and water
meters said tho other day, according
to daily papers, that ono of tho chief
troubles in Chicago was tho vory high
consumption of wator, which averaged
about 2,000 gallons per capita dally,
caused largely by waste and under
ground loakago from broken connec
tions. As a remedy for waste he
recommended water meters. Tho test
of tho water pressure made In the
loop 'shows an Insufficient pressure,
but ho eald that tho city was Install
ing a large number of wator mains,
none under eight Inches, and these
would materially Improvo the pres
sure. Tho health of the city demands
plenty of water for everybody.
Tho install"".:!! of meters would
limit th consumption of water and
rols' .0 prlco of living on tho poor.
-.rtghor rates would havo to be
gorged in tho resldenco districts and
tenants would havo to pay tho water
rates after tho landlords had paid an
exorbitant rnto for lnBtalllng water
This form of graft 1b particularly
objoctlonablo to Chicago peoplo. They
will not stand for It.
It hits everybody and It Is unneces
sary. From the learned telephone expert
whose report was submitted to the
City Council in May, 1111, we lean ea
pages 49 and 60, that the Bell Tele
phone monopoly that reaches all over
tbe country, owns a controUlag inter
est In tbe local telephone company aad
the Western Electrical Company. "Tho
latter is purely a manufacturing com
pany," says the report, "engaged la
the manufacture of Bell telephone ap
paratus and supplies." In 1904 a con
tract was entered lato between tbe
local telephone company and tbe elec
trical company, both of them ownea
by the Bell monopoly, whereby the
local company agreed to purchase all
of its supplies from tbe electrio com
pany. Under the terms of this con
tract tbe electrical company agrees te
deliver to tbe telephone company rll
telephone appliances manufactured un
der the license of tbe Bell Telephone
Company. The local telephone com
