WHY CHICAGO IS

Tho reformers of Chicago aro re
sponsible for tho rapid dlsappearnnco
of trees from tho city strcots. All
of tho trees woro plnntod nt tho por

reformers had a city ordinance passed
by tho City Council forbidding tho
planting of trees without n permit
which tho citizen would lmvo to go to
tho City Hall and pay for. Tho troo
ownor is also prohibited by this ordi
nance from trimming or spraying his
treoa without paying for n City Hall
permit. Ilonco in tho nnino of graft
and reform, city troos nro dying off. A
defunct dally nowspapor that was do
voted to dolly rotorma and that dlod
of ovorwork In this direction was re
sponsible for this outrageous ordi
nance, on account of Its Intluonco with
fooblo minded nldormon.
